According to the New York Post, The Biden Cancer Initiative, which was founded in 2017 by the former vice president and his wife Jill Biden, granted no money to research, and spent millions on staff salaries.
“The charity took in $4,809,619 in contributions in fiscal years 2017 and 2018, and spent $3,070,301 on payroll in those two years. The group’s president, Gregory Simon, raked in $429,850 in fiscal 2018 (July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019), according to the charity’s most recent federal tax filings,” the New York Post stated in a report published on Friday, Nov. 14.
The charity hired former Washington aides who worked on the White House’s cancer task force in the Obama administration like Simon, who headed up the task force and Danielle Carnival, former chief of staff for Obama’s cancer initiative, the Cancer Moonshot Task Force. Simon saw his salary nearly double in Biden’s charity compared to what he made in 2017 and Carnival also raked in $258,207 in 2018.
The charity spent most of its contributions on staff salaries, conference, and travel in its first two years but zero on research. After two years, the charity “paused” its operations when Biden began his presidential run, according to the Post.
Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 election after legacy media outlets called the race for him despite ongoing legal challenges in several crucial battleground states and widespread allegations of voter fraud.
Biden named his transition team and announced a CCP Virus (coronavirus) task force made up of physicians and experts. Some of them have raised eyebrows with their past remarks on health issues.
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, who was tapped as a member of Biden’s coronavirus task force, suggested in a 2014 essay that it’s not worth living after you reach 75 and that society, as well as your family members, would be “better off” if nature took “its course swiftly and promptly.”
Ron Klain, a longtime political consultant and former lobbyist, was appointed to be Biden’s chief of staff. Klain said in 2014 that American elections are “rigged” and downplayed the CCP Virus pandemic at its early stages in 2020.
Klain has praised the Chinese Communist Party for being “transparent” and “candid” over its response to the pandemic and opposed President Trump’s early travel ban to China amid the outbreak.
In February, Klain praised New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for going to Chinatown and eating there in an attempt to push back on pandemic fears, reported Daily Wire.
