Disclosure: Brookings Takes Millions from Foreign Governments

The Brookings Institution, one of the country’s top left-leaning think tanks, has for the first time admitted to Congress that it receives millions of dollars every year from foreign governments, including Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, according to official disclosure forms obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The disclosure of these figures comes as a result of a recently implemented federal law mandating that those who testify before Congress reveal any potential conflicts created as a result of funding by foreign entities.

    We have a similar problem in this country, with “think tanks” which are hooked up to a university. It is difficult to search for their balance sheets, which may show overseas money. Stand-alone charities have to disclose foreign money, albeit as an aggregate figure.

    I am working on a project to follow recent money flows of NASIMCO, a fairly radical Shia umbrella group here in Canada. It’s tricky doing it, tracing money flows in and out. But their finances are questionable.

    Probably the real reason why Clinton is against the Keystone pipeline. She has to keep her Saudi buddies happy. And in the ongoing effort of the media to turn this election into one of the nastiest in history, the Toronto Star front page story is how racist Harper is. This is because one of his Toronto MPs is worried about muslim immigration in Europe and here.

    Of course they are. It’s been an open secret for years and years Brookings is a ‘lobbyist’ I mean bribery machine.
