MacKenzie Scott, ex-wife of Amazon titan Jeff Bezos, has ditched her married name and is giving away big money.
The Amazon founder’s ex has donated $1.7 billion so far, she said Tuesday in a Medium post detailing why, and where, her money had gone — mainly to groups promoting racial and gender equity, public health, education and economic parity.
“Like many, I watched the first half of 2020 with a mixture of heartbreak and horror,” Scott wrote. “Life will never stop finding fresh ways to expose inequities in our systems; or waking us up to the fact that a civilization this imbalanced is not only unjust, but also unstable.”
Her announcement was designed to draw attention to a host of causes in “nine areas of need,” she wrote, including racial equity ($586.7 million), LGBTQ+ equity ($46 million), gender equity ($133 million), public health ($128.3 million), global development ($130 million) and climate change ($125 million).

That is a huge gender gap.
Do you think Biden’s Brain Trust has any kind of a plan for how to bottle back up the lunacy the Democrats have helped unleash over the last 7 years? I sure hope they do.
But with all the money flowing in to Peacefulness Intensification pressure groups from the likes of the ex-Mrs. Bezos, what exactly could President Biden do to mitigate the mania?
