Government Integrity Project

NLPC “blows the whistle” on government officials and interest groups engaged in questionable activities. NLPC has filed formal Complaints with a variety of authorities and regulators, including the Federal Election Commission, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Congressional Ethics Committees.

NLPC supports government integrity in two additional ways: by promoting the First Amendment as the basis for campaign finance reform, and by promoting use of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Obon'go and Barack photoThe Barack H. Obama Foundation no longer states on its website that contributions are tax deductible. It has also stopped using an Arlington, Virginia address that we found to be a mail-forwarding service. The only address it now uses is in Kenya.

These changes are in apparent response to our May 8 request of the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Foundation, named for President Obama's father, and founded by his half-brother Abon'go Malik Obama. We alleged that the Foundation never applied for tax-deductible status and has never filed an IRS Form 990, the annual tax return for nonprofit organizations.

Diversity imageWhether the preferred term is "affirmative action," "diversity" or "quotas," the nation continues its long march, and with remarkably little political opposition, toward mandatory equality in outcomes by race and sex. The unrelenting nature of this trend is evident in a 36-page report issued last month by the Congressional Research Service (CRS).

Sharpton Gingrich photoToday we are asking Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich to repudiate Al Sharpton. Gingrich appeared around the country in late 2009 as part of something called the Education Equality Project. At that time, we asked Gingrich to sever ties with Sharpton, only to be ignored.

Now that Gingrich has gone from private citizen to candidate, he must be made accountable for his associations. As Dr. Carl Horowitz of our staff has documented in our 2009 Special Report titled Mainstreaming Demagoguery: Al Sharpton's Rise to Respectability, Sharpton has promoted fake hate crimes against blacks, and has inspired racial antagonism against whites and Jews.

green GM logoGeneral Motors recently announced a couple of more ways to freely spend taxpayer money. While GM boasts of "investing" in politically-correct "green" initiatives and makes misleading job "creation or preservation" claims, shareholders continue to be neglected as share price languishes below the IPO price. Although GM seems to dislike the nickname of "Government Motors", its actions belie the company's perceived desire to run a profitable, publicly-owned corporation.

Elizabeth Warren photoElizabeth Warren (see photo) is an anomaly: a Harvard law professor and an outspoken populist. But as a ranking member of the Obama administration, she and her office are fast becoming unpopular - at least among many congressional Republicans. Since last September, Warren has served as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a powerful watchdog agency created by last year's financial reform overhaul.

Once again, the media is uncritically reporting inaccurate claims by General Motors. GM says it is creating 4,200 jobs by spending $2 billion of taxpayer money on plant investments, but it is using the same misleading calculations employed by the Obama administration about job creation through the stimulus program. GM states that it will "invest" $2 billion, thereby "creating OR preserving" more than 4,000 jobs at 17 facilities. In other words, GM is equating keeping people employed in their present jobs with job creation.

Abongo and Barack photoNLPC is asking the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to investigate the Barack H. Obama Foundation, which is soliciting tax-deductible contributions from the public although it is not tax exempt. The Foundation is named for Obama's father and is apparently based in Kenya. Its founder and chairman is Abon'go Malik Obama (in photo), whose father is also the father of President Obama.

The Foundation has addresses in Kenya and in Arlington, Virginia to which it asks that donations be sent. Two members of the NLPC staff went to the Arlington address on May 6. It is a commercial mail drop facility where the clerk touted the fact that the address "looked like a real office address" and the facility could arrange to forward mail to any location in the world.
