Joe Biden accepted millions in anonymous funding during presidential race

Democrats have spent decades railing against the amount of anonymous funding, or “dark money,” poured into elections and politics each year, but they don’t seem to have much of an opinion on the matter when that money benefits them or one of their own.

According to Newsmax, the perfect example of how influential dark money can be on an election-level is evidenced by former Vice President Joe Biden’s — media-declared — victory in the 2020 presidential election, as he pulled in a whopping $132 million in anonymous funding for the 2020 election cycle. 

Biden took in so much dark money that he topped the list of dark money recipients — despite months of posturing against shadowy donors.

“The analysis defined dark money as donations and other spending by nonprofits that don’t disclose sources, and money from limited liability corporations functioning as shell corporations,” the Newsmax report explained.

As a Center for Responsive Politics for CNN analysis indicated, Democrats were the prime recipients of mountains of dark money, hauling in roughly $320 million, which was reportedly more than double that Republicans took in for the 2020 election.

Not surprisingly, Biden’s advisers didn’t care to comment on the matter, but presumably in an effort to save face, said that Biden is bent on proposing “sweeping changes” to address the dark money issue once he’s in office — and after he’s already taken in the most dark money of any candidate in 2020.

Fred Wertheimer, who runs the watchdog group Democracy 21, said that the dark money issue and campaign finance is always a hot topic, but implied that both parties don’t seem to want to take the actions necessary to put a stop to it.

“This is a rotten system, but as long as it exists, both parties are going to use it,” Wertheimer said.

According to 850WFTL, the 2016 election cycle saw much less dark money thrown at candidates than in 2020, with only $66.8 million. However, a report from the Center for Responsive Politics at the time indicated that Republicans benefited then with more than twice the amount spent on their party as opposed to Democrats.

In other words, dark money has been and remains still a massive problem. Until someone brave enough in Congress attempts to reduce its impact, the problem will likely exponentially grow in the future.

Come on, put the dots together! All of the shenanigans are tied into a neat little package called PROTECTING POWER (and money). [Research ‘the [email protected] Re$et’ which aims at a 1 world view of redi$tribution]. Don’t believe that these life-longers are altruists. They play “Mr. Smith goes to Washington” to get and hoard their piece of the pie, then can’t help themselves to more and more pieces. [email protected] of acquisition doesn’t matter. They’ve become embolden over the years. This is why the [email protected] struggled so hard over the past 4 years, using every trick in the book, in attempts to disgrace and dislodge the current true altruist that was voted in (to dry up the [email protected]). The ‘incoming’ head swamper is bringing the leaches along with him (and the former big swampers). The swamp MUST remain the swamp even under the transmogrified excuse of “getting back to normal”; which the [email protected] are now pronouncing as TRUST. Forward is backward and backward is forward – welcome to [email protected] @lice!!!

21 hours ago. dr 10Nov20 There is no two ways about “Dominion Voting Machines” that democrats applied to strategic counties to overturn election results in favor of Joe Biden. These machines were placed well in advance by professionals operating the machines to select voting for a specific person of their choice namely JBiden as opposed to DJTrump. Wherever these machines were hooked too, to manipulate exclusive results for a candidate, is fraudulent, with intention to hurt the other party, in doing so, has determined these facts, then fresh elections to be recalled by the FEC to fix a date where both parties observe recounting and transparency. Dominion Voting machines are manipulative and can be fixed. With this in view, consider Joe Bidan an illigitmate P-elect as being fully aware of this fraudulent act. This case should now rest with the nations Supreme Court to null-n-void the Nov03 elections as being disqualified and manipulative.

dr 31oct20 dr 15oct20 Here’s a known fact, sleepy Joe (😎) Biden of 47 years in govt., is the founder and creator of the Swamp Creatures, as the nemesis of justice shall prevail upon these liars n cheaters and his cohorts the democrats, some republicans, Obama judges, MSM(msmafia) etc. This nest is huge and will unravel all those involved in the government. WHAT IS A.G.BARR DOING ABOUT THIS CRIME, HE’S RUNNING AROUND MAKING ARRESTS NOT RELATED TO THE MAIN CRIME SCENE OF UKRAIN/RUSSIA, WHICH HE TOTALLY IGNORES FOR AFTER THE 03NOV. The democrats/cohorts have induced so much fear by intimidation and, their gimmicks they shower on those who do not surrender to their Political Evil and bully tactics are threatened after 03nov is what they can expect if dems. win by hook or by crow. To this I inject a change in the Top Military Command and DOD, who should work at the pleasure of the President CIC of the Armed forces with the mandate of the people and not otherwise, and not some nitwit statements made by thieving democrats who do not practice what they preach but accuse PTrump for all their immoral and unethical behavior as reported daily by few honest news media. Democrats have the qualities and characteristics of criminals; they can sugar-coat their words to you, into believing all they will tell you, that they will do for you and never will, if elected.

Is there REALLY a doubt in your mind that this election was fraud? REALLY, do you wonder? You are as blind as those few who voted for Biden. There is no way a person running for office, with NO followers, could get enough votes to even count. This election was taken by cheating, using the very voting machines CREATED in Vensuala in order to win that election. I would be ashamed to admit I had doubts that THIS election was anything but fraud. Use a little common sense and think for yourself.

Oh, that President Trump could get back in office and finish the job he started, to drain the swamp, but when even his fellow Republicans turn against him what do we do? We can’t even vote them out because our votes get adjusted. Our only hope is the return of Jesus and let Him take care of those who are too crooked to be in office of any kind.

If this election was so honest why won’t the people at Dominion answer any questions about their machines? And why did they close all their offices? Why is creepy Joe in such a sweat to name cabinet members & have Trump concede the election? Why don’t the Dems want to have all the irregularities & glitches investigated & explained so that there will be no doubt about who really won the election? Why weren’t the Republican poll watchers allowed to observe the counting of the ballots? Why? Because if the election was truly honest President Trump would be starting a second term in office! That’s why!
The people who work for Dominion better start looking for another job because no one will trust that company now!

Biden isn’t only a liar, cheat, thief and corrupt as hell, he’s a traitor!

I would much rather see “AVERAGE” honest and loyal American Citizens fill the open seats in the House and Senate, than some filthy rich and greedy politicians! To me, it’s nothing less than sheer stupidity to think that people like Obama, Clinton, Biden and Pelosi (among many others) got filthy rich LEGALLY while they were in office! Our enemies here and abroad are making politicians rich so that, they will betray our Republic. I, for one, can’t allow this to continue!
