As you may recall, the Southern Poverty Law Center, America’s most lucrative hate group, had a tumultuous 2019, what with it firing its living legend co-founder Morris Dees, its CEO Richard Cohen, and several other top staffers over hazily specified allegations of racism and sexism.

The SPLC announced in March 2019 that it was hiring woke freelance fixer Tina Tchen, the former Michelle Obama chief of staff who made the phone call to Chicago DA Kim Foxx that apparently got Jussie Smollett off the hook, to investigate what is really going on and issue a public report.

Thirteen months later, I haven’t been able to find a peep from Tchen.

So, how did all these scandals affect the SPLC financially?

It just got richer.

Granted its pile of lucre didn’t grow as fast in fiscal year 2019, ending October 31, 2019, as during the previous Trump Derangement Syndrome years of 2017-2018, but, according to its new financial statement, it still piled up another $52 million more than it spent last year, with Net Assets growing from $493 million to $545 million.

There are many theories about why the SPLC keeps accumulating, in onshore and offshore accounts, such an immense amount of money rather than spend it heroically battling the Ku Klux Klan.

My best guess is only modestly scandalous: the SPLC can’t spend vast amounts of money annually grappling with the Ku Klux Klan because the KKK can barely be said to exist anymore and it definitely doesn’t have deep pockets. But Morris is a junk mail genius who loves fundraising, so the SPLC juggernaut keeps rolling along doing what it does best — fear-mongering and fundraising — despite the near total lack of need for its services.

    A serious administration would hit 'em with RICO and take all the money. There's your wall fund. And don't "muh legality" me. May I remind you that a ham sandwich can be indicted.
  2. Their investment returns probably ran 10-12% given how well everything did last year. That is assuming they are somewhat conservative with the investments. You would also except giving to be higher in a year with good stock market returns. 2020 will tell how good they really are at both investing and fundraising.

  5. In Illinois news, here a nice bit of Orwellian double speak in the following headline:

    May stay-at-home order lifts some restrictions as public masks become required:

    https://wgntv.com/news/coronavirus/may-stay-at-home-order-lifts-some-restrictions-as-public-masks-become-required/

    So you see, lifting restrictions means requiring face masks. Makes perfect sense.

    Here, we have a 32 year old obese negro woman (who appears to possibly be retarded) who died walking up the stairs. But no you see, it’s not the fact that she was a disgusting fatbody that killed her, it was CoronaVirus (pbuh)!!! Members of the Kovid Kult Klan are now required to bow their masked mushes in a moment of silence.

  6. The SPLC quit doing substantive legal work a long time ago. It went from Dees actually appearing in court in trial to farming everything out to regional law firms who had pro bono hours to contribute to nothing. The most significant activity it’s engaged in for years is Mark Potok and Hideous Heidi’s “Intelligence Project.” This is basically just a smear machine, the SJW version of McCarthyism’s “Red Channels” to denounce “haters.”

    Ironically though, this project may have gotten stiff competition now from Antifa and other leftist doxxers, who do the same work mostly on a volunteer basis (well, not counting whatever upstream money Soros and the like put into organizing, SEO, and such). So maybe it makes sense for the House that Dees Built to just focus on doing well now, rather than doing “good.”

    Maybe Peter Thiel can fund a lawsuit against the SPLC on behalf of Steve for libel and then when he gets the $500 million he can buy a cliff side headquarters for his think tank at Torrey Pines.

    It seems to me that the SPLC is fundraising off of libel against Steve, so this seems like an entirely reasonable proposition.

    There are over a dozen other fundraising articles exploiting Steve’s good name at the SPLC, and in all of them the large “DONATE” button never leaves the screen, no matter how one scrolls around in the article.

    If Thiel won’t help, I implore others to rise up and fight the oppression that is the SPLC extracting money from the labor of others like Steve and merely using them as a slaveowner would, exploiting them for their own greedy ends.

    Steve, it is time to throw off the violent chains of the SPLC and walk free!

  12. This neutralization/subversion of left-wing cash is probably second only to Bernie Madoff’s pauperizing of leftist do-gooder organizations!

    My personal favorite is when the Silents and Boomers blather on about Liberty, If you want to make an overly-pedigreed Boomer go NPC, show them the Magna Carta. They love to reference this because it sounds intelligent, but to a person, they have never actually read any of it.

    Particularly show them those Based clauses 10-11 in the Magna Carta that forbade Jewish lenders from throwing widows out of their homes and collecting interest from children. Funny how so little changes. A Boomer’s brow will become furrowed, like a child hearing about the unfiltered Brothers Grimm for the first time.

    * (11) If a man dies owing money to Jews, his wife may have her dower and pay nothing towards the debt from it. If he leaves children that are under age, their needs may also be provided for on a scale appropriate to the size of his holding of lands. The debt is to be paid out of the residue, reserving the service due to his feudal lords. Debts owed to persons other than Jews are to be dealt with similarly.
     

    These look like very reasonable and lawyerly attempts to balance the needs of the heirs of deceased borrowers vs. lenders. If you substitute the word "banks" for "Jews" (with the understanding that in those days Jews were the only ones lending out money at interest (in other words, banking) then there is nothing brow furrowing about it. It's a little bit Leftist in that it legislatively rewrites previously agreed contracts, but I could see a left wing Democrat proposing something virtually identical today.

    Yeah, I am a boomer and you got that right. There are of course explanations. From day one we and especially the college bound among us,got the best education money could buy. We just weren't told it was a Jewish education. I majored in history and only recently found out it was Jewstory. I do from time to time feel as if I owe younger generations a great apology for not having been smart enough to see thru what is one of history's greatest scams by history's greatest scammers. But then I think, "Well you know if gen Y and Z had been confronted with the ideological monolith that the greatest generation had handed us boomers maybe they too would still be carrying water for Sammy Glick". But am I copping a plea? Please do respond. i would love to sit down in a room with Y's and Z;s and talk about what it was like to be so professionally deracinated. But what about X ers? You must notice how race realist Steve Sailer sidesteps ethnic realism, huh?

    There are people who hate Jews qua Jews, but not many, and they have no money or influence. There are people who hate any group. But if there is any group that wields power, wealth, and influence in great disproportion to their numbers, it’s Jews.

    All the white “supremist” groups out there worldwide wield collectively perhaps one percent of the ADL’s resources in Los Angeles alone. Black, Muslim, and other nonwhite outfits are actually a bigger threat to Jewish power and safety. Blacks often do not like Jews and will say so.

    Houston megachurch pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell pleads guilty to fraud using phony bonds

    After publicly denying the allegations, the Rev. Kirbyjon H. Caldwell, a Houston pastor who had the ear of presidents, admitted in a Louisiana federal courtroom on Wednesday to aiding in a multimillion-dollar investment scheme, duping members of his flock into buying phony bonds.

    Caldwell, who served as a spiritual adviser to Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, pleaded guilty to a massive wire fraud scheme that helped pay off his personal debt and maintain his lifestyle, according to court documents. The judge set his sentencing for July 22.

  27. What an easy grift. Seriously, the day Trump got elected I should have started an “advocacy group” called Resist! or something. Pay $1,000 for like 50 million email addresses, and start sending out massive numbers of emails looking for donations. I could write the emails in my sleep. With Liberal money apparently limitless (what percent of the top 10% are Liberals?), you’d be bound to make a few million a year. Hell, I could have probably cleared a few mil just during the Kavanaugh hearings.

    You could do social media too. Start putting out sly Titania McGrath-style posts that seem woke and anti-Trump but are slyly not. C’mon, you’d fool 95% of your donors.

    And then you could have an app called TrumpRage. It’s just a big red button and when you push it, your phone emits a blood curdling scream (and also sends a dollar to help Resist!!). And more, it connects with your Facebook, Twitter, etc. accounts so every time you Rage Against Trump it lets all your friends know!

    And then there’s the Black button that you push when you’re “literally shaking,” and it makes your phone vibrate. Dopamine rush!! You’d have millions of hits a day from the Liberal Shrike population.

    Problem is I’m way too unambitious and lazy to ever get something like this off the ground. But hey, this whole plan took me about ten minutes in the shower to think up. I’m like a bottomless well of ideas like this. I should team up with some aggressive Jewish guy and make bank. Maybe when Trump wins in 2020.

  28. Maybe the SPLC is just a nonprofit meant to stash cash for its donors. Kinda like all those “charitable” family foundations such has the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Harvard is a hedge fund pretending to be a school. Arguably so is Penn State. You know all scams by the rich cheaters.

    Ahh yes, it reminds me of that old Anglo-Saxon proverb…

    “The Jew cries out in pain, as he tries to collect interest from orphans and force cash-strapped widows to sell their lands for pence on the pound.”

    Hmmm, actually, that saying never took hold. I wonder why? Perhaps the Magna Carta helped, with the needs of balancing the needs of heirs and lenders, as you put it. Possibly also because Longshanks threw their asses out of England some decades later, and the country never looked back.

    Now that we live in enlightened times where Christians too can lend money at interest, the rule to this day is that widows and orphans don't have to pay any interest on inherited mortgaged property and are not subject to foreclosure. Right? Or did that deal only apply when the lenders were Jewish?
  36. The real purpose of the SPLC is to provide a Constitutional circumnavigation enabling totalitarian political prosecution. The connection to the FBI is more important than the exact size of their ill-gotten gain — although they are surely fattening in preparation for electoral interference this fall. Watch for an offensive to delegitimize voters and smear gatherings.
    The SPLC’s pet FBI director Christopher Wray has been a justice-obstructing disaster.
    Yesterday, bombshell revelations in the Flynn case pretty much vindicated our side of the “spy vs spy” thing. Flynn is almost certainly going to get off, and should be generously compensated, and placed in charge of the FBI.

    I can’t even begin to lay my eyes on it but some years ago the Montgomery newspaper did a real expose’ of Morris’s empire. While it used to rake in cash via direct mail from suckers concerned citizens far and wide, the demographic that responded to direct mail solicitations to stop the Klan got older and older, and the money flow declined.

    No worries, because the $PLC had by then built up a pretty good stack of cash that it used for generation of more cash. It’s become more of an investment fund that pretends to engage in social activism. Hence the diverse portfolio, including Cayman Islands accounts, so that the org can live off of income from those sources, rather than trying to convince aging liberals to send one more check in the mail.

    The fact that $PLC is following a similar strategy to that of drug lords is a mere coincidence.

  39. This makes no sense. We know exactly how much they have offshore – it is $162 million, and that is included in the $545M.

    That’s reported offshore assets. Haven’t you heard of “numbered accounts”?

    There are people who hate Jews qua Jews, but not many,
     
    Wouldn't know that from being on unz.com. Jew haters seem to be pretty plentiful around here.

    and they have no money or influence.
     
    That part I agree with.

    Unzites gotta be consistent. It doesn't make sense to declare that you hate Jews and and the same time to declare that Jew hatred by whites doesn't exist.

    By no means are Jews my least favorite people. Jewish neighbors would trouble me not at all. By contrast, Gypsies would be. Some Asian groups, particularly those inclined to smelly cooking or poor sanitation, would be.

    My primary house is just outside feasible walking distance of a shul. If they’d built it at the next closest feasible chunk of real estate, I would have probably simply sold my house to the hats at a good profit, and been okay with that.

    Hate is one thing: caution another. I try to be equally suspicious of everyone.

    Houston megachurch pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell pleads guilty to fraud using phony bonds

    Gabrielle Banks
    March 11, 2020

    After publicly denying the allegations, the Rev. Kirbyjon H. Caldwell, a Houston pastor who had the ear of presidents, admitted in a Louisiana federal courtroom on Wednesday to aiding in a multimillion-dollar investment scheme, duping members of his flock into buying phony bonds.

    Caldwell, who served as a spiritual adviser to Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, pleaded guilty to a massive wire fraud scheme that helped pay off his personal debt and maintain his lifestyle, according to court documents. The judge set his sentencing for July 22.

    It’s fitting that Morris Dees — a Southern gentile, not a Jew — created the SPLC. It’s speaks to the Silent Generation’s and Boomer’s complete lack of allegiance to Western civilization and its cultural underpinnings. It’s also fitting these geezers will habitually keep sending in checks, as if they are playing the slots in Branson.

    My personal favorite is when the Silents and Boomers blather on about Liberty, If you want to make an overly-pedigreed Boomer go NPC, show them the Magna Carta. They love to reference this because it sounds intelligent, but to a person, they have never actually read any of it.

    Particularly show them those Based clauses 10-11 in the Magna Carta that forbade Jewish lenders from throwing widows out of their homes and collecting interest from children. Funny how so little changes. A Boomer’s brow will become furrowed, like a child hearing about the unfiltered Brothers Grimm for the first time.

    Yeah, I am a boomer and you got that right. There are of course explanations. From day one we and especially the college bound among us,got the best education money could buy. We just weren’t told it was a Jewish education. I majored in history and only recently found out it was Jewstory. I do from time to time feel as if I owe younger generations a great apology for not having been smart enough to see thru what is one of history’s greatest scams by history’s greatest scammers. But then I think, “Well you know if gen Y and Z had been confronted with the ideological monolith that the greatest generation had handed us boomers maybe they too would still be carrying water for Sammy Glick”. But am I copping a plea? Please do respond. i would love to sit down in a room with Y’s and Z;s and talk about what it was like to be so professionally deracinated. But what about X ers? You must notice how race realist Steve Sailer sidesteps ethnic realism, huh?

    * (10) If anyone who has borrowed a sum of money from Jews dies before the debt has been repaid, his heir shall pay no interest on the debt for so long as he remains under age, irrespective of whom he holds his lands. If such a debt falls into the hands of the Crown, it will take nothing except the principal sum specified in the bond.

    * (11) If a man dies owing money to Jews, his wife may have her dower and pay nothing towards the debt from it. If he leaves children that are under age, their needs may also be provided for on a scale appropriate to the size of his holding of lands. The debt is to be paid out of the residue, reserving the service due to his feudal lords. Debts owed to persons other than Jews are to be dealt with similarly.
     

    These look like very reasonable and lawyerly attempts to balance the needs of the heirs of deceased borrowers vs. lenders. If you substitute the word "banks" for "Jews" (with the understanding that in those days Jews were the only ones lending out money at interest (in other words, banking) then there is nothing brow furrowing about it. It's a little bit Leftist in that it legislatively rewrites previously agreed contracts, but I could see a left wing Democrat proposing something virtually identical today. Bankruptcy courts often "cram down" creditors in a similar way, even today.

    Just because something has the word "Jew" in it doesn't make it automatically exciting.

    Seems like a good example of Jewish legalistic reasoning. Are you a natural Jack or did you assimilate as so many of us whites have? Why did Edward 1 or whoever throw them out of England? Just that terrible innate Euro goyish antisemitism reemerging?

  45. Just for the record, the KKK hasn’t existed since about 1929. (That was the second Klan, which came into existence in about 1915 and had its heyday from about 1920-1925. The first Klan existed from about 1866-1869.) There have been various “Klans,” sometimes called inaccurately “the third Klan,” since about 1960, but none of them have been any sort of national organization.

    Oh, and the second Klan was actually pretty Progressive.

    But still, the Klan makes for a convenient boogeyman for the left, not just in the US but around the world. All that from about a decade of activity, total, in 150+ years.

    The Social Contract Publishes its Last Tract

    by Caleb Kieffer
    April 23, 2020

    The Social Contract, a long-running quarterly journal founded by John Tanton, ran its final issue in Fall 2019.

    For nearly 30 years, the journal was a clearinghouse for anti-immigrant and white nationalist writers. From its launch in 1990, the quarterly provided space for established anti-immigrant figures with mainstream clout as well as notorious racist thinkers. Over the years, it churned out articles fearmongering about demographic shifts, hyping the supposed criminality of immigrants, stoking population alarmism and smearing migrants as being disease-ridden.

    The Social Contract was founded by John Tanton, a eugenics advocate and the architect of the modern-day anti-immigrant movement. Tanton died in July 2019, but his legacy lives on through a constellation of groups he helped pave the way for. Tanton served as editor from 1990 to 1998 before moving to a publisher role.

    The journal’s editors announced the latest issue would also be the last, and it would die with its founder.

    “The recent passing of John Tanton, the founding publisher and editor, brings to an abrupt end a journal which highlighted some of the most pressing issues confronting the United States and other Western nations,” the editors wrote.

    Steve Sailer, another anti-immigrant writer known for peddling discredited race science, has also contributed articles over the years.
