Why Did Minneapolis Police Chief Wait to Arrest George Floyd Killer?

Arradondo and Frey

This opinion piece by NLPC Counsel Paul Kamenar appears on Townhall.com.

In the midst of the rioting following the killing of George Floyd by Officer Derek Chauvin, the Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, asked himself the rhetorical question at a press conference last week: “Why is the officer who killed George Lloyd, not in jail right now? I can’t answer that question.”   The answer is simple as he well knows. His police chief, Medaria Arradondo, decided not to arrest Chauvin on any number of charges, ranging from felony assault, manslaughter, to murder. 

Had he promptly done so at the time he fired Chauvin and the other three officers who assisted him, the community, as well as his fellow officers on the force, would have seen that law enforcement was being responsive and the rioting might have been minimized.

The subsequent complaint against Chauvin filed by the … Read More ➡

‘Slavery Reparations: Revival of a Bad Idea’ (New Monograph)

How did this country get to the stage of widespread rioting, looting and lawlessness in the name of racial justice? It results from the steady diet of fake history dished out at colleges and universities, along with political ideologies that debase the individual in favor of racial group identity. It’s a toxic brew.

National Legal and Policy Center is releasing a new, 65-page monograph by Carl Horowitz titled “Slavery Reparations: Revival of a Bad Idea.” Click on the cover to the right or on the button below to download.

This monograph is our response to the mob, in hopes that at least some people of good will somewhere will allow reason and civil discourse to prevail.

Last summer, the New York Times kicked its program for reparations into high gear. This “1619 Project,” as it is known, rests on the premise that American history, right up to the present, is … Read More ➡

Watchdog Asks Feds to Investigate University, Biden Center for Millions in Anonymous China Donations

From Just the News by Daniel Payne:

A watchdog group is asking the U.S. Education Department to investigate the University of Pennsylvania and its Biden Center, a diplomacy and global engagement initiative named after the Democratic presidential candidate, for accepting millions of dollars in anonymous funds from Chinese donors.

The complaint, filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, says that over the past three years, the university has accepted around $22 million in anonymous funding from Chinese sources. That’s out of a total of more than $70 million from Chinese donors during that time, the NLPC said. 

Those significant funds, including the anonymous amounts, rolled in after the Biden Center was announced in early 2017 and launched in February 2018. The center is located in downtown Washington, D.C.

Government Watchdog Raises Questions About Chinese Influence at University of Pennsylvania’s Biden Center

From the Washington Free Beacon by Alana Goodman:

When Joe Biden announced he was opening a foreign policy center at the University of Pennsylvania, the goals for the project were ambitious.
At its founding in 2018, Biden described the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement as “a place where policymakers here and abroad will know they can be in touch with some of the best minds.”

The center is one of several organizations Biden founded since leaving the White House in 2017, including the domestic policy-focused Biden Institute at the University of Delaware and the Biden Cancer Initiative, all launched in 2017. All three entities have refused to reveal the sources of their funding, a potential landmine for the Democrats’ presumptive presidential nominee that raises questions about the influence of individual, corporate, and foreign donations on the presidential candidate.

The lack of transparency has drawn the attention of … Read More ➡

Complaint Filed Against University of Pennsylvania and Biden Center for Undisclosed China Mega-Donations

National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), a nonprofit public interest organization, filed a complaint with the Department of Education requesting that it conduct a full investigation into the University of Pennsylvania’s failure to disclose the source of millions of dollars of donations from China since 2013 to the university and its Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement as required by law.

Since 2017 alone, when the Biden Center opened and after Joe Biden announced he was running for President in April 2018, the university received over $70 million from China, of which $22 million were listed as “Anonymous.”  Federal law requires the disclosure of the source of all donations over $250,000.  The complaint also requests referral to the Department of Justice to file an enforcement action seeking compliance and to recoup all the costs of the investigation.

The complaint notes that the Biden Center co-sponsored the 2020 Penn China Read More ➡

Pompeo is Right; Menendez is a Crook, but How Did He Get Off?

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Senator Robert Menedez (D-NJ) of orchestrating the controversy over the firing of State Department Inspector General Steve Linick.

Abbe Lowell and his client

Pompeo said. “I don’t get my ethics guidance from a man who was criminally prosecuted — case number 15-155, New Jersey Federal District Court. A man for whom his Senate colleagues, bipartisan said basically that he was taking bribes. That’s not someone who I look to for ethics guidance.”

Pompeo is right. Menendez is a crook. He should have been forced out of the Senate and gone to jail with his co-defendant Salomon Melgen. But it was the Trump Justice Department that let Menendez off the hook.

As we have recounted previously, Menendez was tried on bribery and related charges, but that trial ended in a mistrial on November 16, 2017, and the Justice Department made a decision not to retry … Read More ➡
