In 2017, Joe Biden’s son, Beau, died of brain cancer. That’s a tragedy none of us would wish upon anyone. After it happened, Joe Biden founded the Biden Cancer Initiative. The initiative pledged to help push cancer research and find cures. It seemed that Biden was determined to spare other families from experiencing his pain. It seemed like a classy, reasonable and respectable thing to do. Unfortunately, we’re talking about Joe Biden here. The charity turned out to be none of those things.
The charity only operated in 2017 and 2018. It was suspended in 2019 when Biden announced his bid for the presidency. In those two years, the charity raised $4.8 million. That’s actually really good for a brand-new charity, and a few million dollars can go a long way in cancer research.
But Biden didn’t give any of that $4.8 million to fund any cancer research. The initiative spent roughly $3 million on staff salaries. They blew another cool million on travel and conference expenses. The remaining $800,000 seemingly falling out of holes (which likely means it was embezzled).
In the tax filings, there is one category that is conspicuously missing: research grants. Do date, the initiative has given $0 to any form of cancer research.
Taking in nearly $5 million from donors and then not using a single dollar on charity is amoral. It shows Joe Biden is just another dirty politician exploiting the tax-exempt status charity’s receive in order to put money in his pocket and the pockets of his friends.
The initiative is run by a who’s who of Obama staffers. The president of the initiative is Gregory Simon. He used to be a Pfizer executive (which helps you understand why they squashed their vaccine announcement until after the election). From 2017 to 2018, he doubled his own salary despite the charity not actually doing anything.
Other prominent leadership in the initiative includes four high-level staffers in the Obama Administration. They all received six-figure salaries. No one is really sure why since this charity has successfully helped 0 people in need (unless you count the need dirty politicians have for extra money in their pockets).
Ultimately, none of this is surprising. It’s tiring, but in no way unexpected. It’s another unoriginal chapter in the endless book of corrupt Democratic politicians. They all do this, and for reasons no one can explain, the media and Democrat voters continue to tolerate it. If there is one lesson to be learned from this, let it be the following: evil people will not give up their ways on their own. This is true of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, the squad and every other dirty politician we have in this country. They will never turn over a new leaf. They will only stop when we make them.
