'Philanthropic' Haas Family Embraces a New Cause--Total Control of Levi

Anonymous said...

Levi Strauss & Co. PBS. The process: Sweatshop workers in Saipan, a U.S. commonwealth exempt from American labor laws that stamps its clothing with “Made in the U.S.A.” tags, were forced to pay recruitment fees of thousands of dollars. To work off the debt, they were kept in indentured servitude at factories.

Haas family is insane and so is any college or group that accepts money from them.

THE WEAK IN REVIEW
A Liberal propaganda program to indoctrinate the sheeple from KC PBS, which is dominated by Woke White suburban JOCO KS residents who secretly hate themselves.

Who makes this lopsided Liberal advocacy possible?

Dave & Jamie Cummings - Cerner, Tradebot Systems, and Bats Global Markets

Bob & Marlese Gourley - Lawrence Photo-Graphics, Graphic Distributors Inc., UMB, Health Midwest, Gold Banc, Lee's Summit R-7

Courtney S. Turner Charitable Trust - Commerce Acceptance Co., California real estate investments, First National Bank, the trust was created to serve the Atchison KS community

What do these people have in common? Intelligence, Faith, Strong work ethic, Conservative business values

Following last week's total exclusion of non-Liberal panelists, of this week's 5 speakers (4 panelists + host) we see only 1 reasonable person, so that's a 4:1 ratio favoring Liberals.

KC PBS + KCUR + The Call + Kansas City Star = all Liberal Democrat groups

Nick Haines, if you don't change your ways, we will begin lobbying KC PBS donors to withhold their funding. Let the Ruckus begin!

Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Fund. - Levi's
The Fiscal Impact of North Carolina’s HB2Christy Malloryand Brad SearsMay 2016This report was produced as part of a collaboration between Out Leadership and the Williams Institute on the legaland economic implications of LGBT-related policies, and funded by the Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Fund. The Williams Institute is committed to the highest standards of independent inquiry, academic excellence and rigor. Research findings and conclusions are never altered to accommodate other interests, including those of funders, other organizations, or government bodies and officials.Executive SummaryAn estimated 1.7% of youth (aged 13-19) and 0.3% of adults in the United States identify as transgender.1Applying these percentages to the number of youth and adults living in North Carolina indicates that the state is home to approximately 15,600 transgender youth aged 13-19 and 22,200 adults aged 20 and older.2House Bill 2/Session Law 2016-33(HB2) requires state and local government entities and public educational institutions to restrict use of restrooms according to “biological sex.” The bill defines “biological sex” as “the physical condition of being male or female, which is stated on a person’s birth certificate.”4This policy is in conflict with several federal laws that prohibit discrimination against transgender people. This memorandum analyzes the potential fiscal impact on North Carolina as a result of the conflicts between House Bill 2 and seven such federal laws: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Executive Order 13672, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act, the Violence Against Women Act, the Affordable Care Act, the Equal Access Rule, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.5The potential fiscal impact of HB2 includes:Loss of federal educational funding of up to $4.7 billion annually as a result of Title IX violations;Loss of federal contracts to state and local government entities of an estimated $35 million to $65 million annually as a result of Executive Order 13672 violations;Loss of federal funding to support NCWorks of up to $108 million annually;Loss of federal grants authorized by the Violence Against Women Act of an estimated $5 million to $5.6 million or more annually; Loss of federal funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as a result of Affordable Care Act violations;Loss of federal funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as a result of Equal Access Rule violations; andCosts incurred as a result of litigation and federal administrative enforcement under Title IX, Executive Order 13672, the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act, the Affordable Care Act, the Violence Against Women Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Equal Access Rule promulgated under the Housing Act of 1949........
