Thread: The Tides Foundation NWO

    The Tides Foundation NWO

    There are many “conspiracy theories” about American billionaires, who use their billions to control politics and/or philanthropy.
    The Tides Foundation unfortunately doesn’t get much attention from our wonderful media and is more interesting than Rockefeller, George Soros, the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson together.

    Now there are some stories on the Tides Foundation funding some “hated” left wing groups, but Tides is much bigger than the backing of only 1 or 2 groups...

    From 2001 to 2018 the Tides Foundation had a total revenue (most of it coming from donations) of $2.6 billion ($143 million per year on average) and paid grants in total of $2.2 billion ($123 million per year on average).
    In 2018, the Tides Foundation paid out $291 million in grants...
    That kind of money buys a lot of influence!

    The San Francisco based tax exempt Tides Foundation was founded in 1976 by Drummond Pike to funnel grants to “centre-left nonprofits”, while the donors have an advisory role in its grant making.
    So basically the donors have a say in where their money goes to, while the grants are labelled as coming from Tides.
    Initial funding for the Tides Foundation came from Jane Lehman, heiress to the Reynolds tobacco fortune and ex-president of the Arca Foundation.

    The Tides Foundation is the most important of a group of “Tides” named entities in the Tides network. The Tides Center is also important.

    The donor list of Tides includes the elite of the world, including:
    The Pew Charitable Trust (of the family of Sun Oil);
    The Ford Foundation;
    Open Society Institute (of George Soros);

    Carnegie Corporation;
    Rockefeller Foundations/Funds.

    The Tides Foundation has been accused of funnelling millions of dollars from American donors to block the joint U.S.-Canadian Keystone XL pipeline.

    The Tides Foundation also receives regular grants from a number of nonprofits associated with for-profit investment companies, including Fidelity Investments Charitable Gift Fund and Vanguard Charitable Endowment Program. Vanguard and Fidelity are of course some of the largest investment funds in the world that completely control the world economy.
    Fidelity Charitable is the largest charitable grant making organisation in the United States (before nr. 2 the Gates Foundation).

    The Tides Foundation and affiliated Tides Center also received millions from the US government (paid for by the American taxpayer): https://www.influencewatch.org/non-p...es-foundation/

    I’m no supporter of the Keystone XL pipeline, which is now being built after being approved by president Donald, but financing opposition to this is one of the few Tides scandals that has gotten some media attention (and is an interesting story, wait for the punchline!).


    The (American) Tides Foundation and Tides Canada (founded in Canada) receive funding from other donors and then pass the money on to various organisations. Tides is not required to reveal which donors provide funding for the various grants to conceal which donors are funding what causes and groups.

    Pew Charitable Trusts funnelled $42.6 through Tides million for grants to Ducks Unlimited, as part of the campaign against Keystone XL.
    Part of what Ducks Unlimited does is, like Tides, passing through funds. Its main activity is hunting ducks (sure you could call that nature preservation).

    Now here it gets really strange, in a scheme that looks like some sort of money laundering (using tax exempt foundation).
    In March 2009, Pew gave Ducks Unlimited $4.4 million, partly to be re-granted to the Boreal Songbird Initiative, which is a project of the Pew Environment Group”. So in short, Pew donated to Ducks Unlimited that was funnelled back to Pew: https://capitalresearch.org/article/...e-xl-pipeline/


    Rockefeller that has gotten most of its billions from oil is one of the funders of the Tides Foundation to oppose Keystone XL.
    The Pew Charitable Trusts was founded by Joseph Pew and his heirs, who got rich from Sun Oil, now Sunoco. Sunoco’s Canadian subsidiary, Suncor, runs the second largest operations in Alberta's tar sands.

    Why would big oil oppose the destruction of nature by big oil?
    It looks like the Pew Charitable Trusts uses front groups to counter the demands of the “genuine” environmental groups, a scheme that is sometimes called “controlled opposition”.

    According to US-based author Alex Cockburn:
    In its initial National Forest Campaign, Pew demanded that recipients of grant money agree to focus their attention on government actions; corporate wrongdoers were not to be named. This extreme plan was modified after some recipients balked.

    In one of those strange “coincidences”, one of the best known “conspiracy theorists” in the world - David Icke – is affiliated to the elite funded Tides Foundation, through his “Freedom Foundation” that was administered by the International Humanities Center (IHC).
    In 2005, one of the top donors of the IHC was the Tides Foundation (with $55,000).

    See David Icke and his ex-wife showing their love for Freemasonry...


    The Pew Charitable Trust (of the family of Sun Oil), between 1990 and 2002 donated $118 million to Tides.
    The Ford Foundation provided $36 million between 1989 and 2005.
    George Soros’ Open Society Institute donated $15.7 million (1997-2003).
    Carnegie Corporation contributed $2.3 million (1992-2002).

    Rockefeller Foundation gave $2.9 million (1993-2002);
    Rockefeller Brothers Fund gave $1.9 million (1993-2003), plus $250,000 in 2005;
    Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisers gave $372,300 (1997-2001);
    Rockefeller Family Fund donated $175,000 (1991-2001).

    Between 1995 and 2001, the Tides Foundation also received some $6 million from Heinz Endowments, run by Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of Skull & Bones man Senator John Kerry, who ran for president “against” George W. Bush in 2004

    Joanie Bronfman sits on the Tides Foundation’s Board of Directors.
    Bronfman is of course a member of the notorious family, an “heiress to the Seagram whiskey fortune”.

    In 2006, the donors of the IHC were again very interesting.
    Topping the list was a Laurance Rockefeller, who donated $899,000 to the IHC.

    Before becoming IHC Executive Director, Steve Sugarman had been Executive Director of Social & Environmental Entrepreneurs (SEE). The SEE Program was founded in 1994 by the EarthWays Foundation. The EarthWays Foundation was established in 1988 by Andrew Beath. EarthWays’ financial connections are also interesting.
    In 1998, EarthWays received $50,000 from the Rockefeller Foundation and another $42,837 in 2000.
    EarthWays also received “$10,000 or more” from Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, between 2002 and 2004.

    Another EarthWays project, The Atomic Mirror (TAM) is also associated to the Rockefeller “philanthropies”.
    In 2005 TAM was a participant in “The People Speak: America’s Role in the World” organised by the United Nations Foundation, with additional backing from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Brookings Institution: http://www.paranoiamagazine.com/2013...om-foundation/

    In 2012, the International Humanities Center (IHC) collapsed in which (mostly small) donors reportedly lost $1 million (where did the money go?): https://www.npr.org/2012/02/14/14688...=1591461980470

    Never really followed him, but Icke always seemed like controlled opposition to me.

    In 2010, the Tides Foundation donated $2 million and Hewlett Foundation another $1.3 million to the Wikimedia Foundation for “general operating support”.
    Wikimedia Foundation of course collects donations for the heavily censored Wikipedia...

    In 2011, the Stanton Foundation made the largest grant in Wikimedia’s history (at the time), donating $3.6 million, to hire a “Wikipedian in Residence” at Harvard to edit Wikipedia articles on “politically-sensitive” points of view. Tim Sandole, who was hired for this “noble cause”, spoke at an event for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, which violates the prohibition on political campaigning by non-profit charities.

    Hewlett and Tides have also both funded the New Venture Fund: https://thegarynullshow.podbean.com/2018/09/


    Here’s another strange example of Tides donating to another tax-exempt “foundation” – Hewlett – that is also a top donor to the Tides Foundation.

    Hewlett received $230,959 from Tides in 2016.

    From 2000 to 2015 among the top 6 recipients of the Hewlett Foundation are the Tides Foundation (that received $24,178,370) and the Tides Canada Foundation (that received another $14,054,864): http://leftexposed.org/2016/01/the-hewlett-foundation/
    (http://archive.is/glfRM)


    The Hewlett Foundation, formally the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, was founded in 1966 by Hewlett-Packard cofounder William Redington Hewlett and his wife Flora Lamson Hewlett. With assets of some $10 billion, it is one of the wealthiest grant makers in the USA.

    The largest recipients of grants from the Hewlett Foundation are (many working on the “problem” of overpopulation):
    National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy – $60.2 million
    International Development Research Centre - $57.1 million
    Planned Parenthood (Worldwide and America) - $50.2 million

    Stichting Hivos (founded and headquartered in the Netherlands) - $28.8 million
    Center for Global Development - $26 million

    The Tides Center is relatively low on the list with “only” $8.6 million: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hewlett_Foundation

    I guess that most people don’t even realise what could be so wrong with a tax-exempt foundation that funnels money to “charities” to obscure the origins of the grants.
    Here are 2 genuine scandals of a sister organisation of Tides, ACORN, which gives a glimpse on what evil lurks behind “charity”...


    The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) was founded by Wade Rathke. Rathke is also a long-time Board member of the Tides Foundation since 1976 (and other Tides related organisations). Wade Rathke is also the good friend of Tides founder Drummond Pike.
    ACORN also received funding from the Tides Foundation.

    See ACORN founder Wade Rathke (left) and his buddy, Tides founder Drummond Pike (right) in Peru (standing in front of a poster of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro).


    In 2000, ACORN found out that Wade’s brother, Dale Rathke (who died in 2014), had embezzled $948,507.50 from ACORN in 1999 and 2000. Instead of filing charges against the thief they settled the case with the Rathke family to repay the money.

    The agreement between ACORN and the Rathkes was registered as a “loan” from Citizens Consulting Inc.
    In 2008, Drummond Pike anonymously bought the loan from the affiliate, according to e-mail messages between senior executives at ACORN.
    It took until the summer of 2008, that ACORN whistleblowers leaked the story to the press that Dale Rathke had embezzled nearly $1 million from ACORN (Dale Rathke had continued to be an ACORN board member all this time): http://archive.is/muvBp


    In September 2009, another scandal marked the end of ACORN.
    Independent filmmaker James O'Keefe and activist Hannah Giles pose as a pimp and a prostitute and secretly videotape ACORN employees giving them advice on evading taxes and establishing a brothel with underage girls.

    After this Congress stops millions in government funding.
    ACORN shut down on 1 April 2010.

    In 1992, none other than later US president Barack Obama headed the Project Vote campaign in Chicago, affiliated with ACORN, which helped get Carol Moseley Braun elected to the US Senate.
    Obama later represented ACORN when it sued Illinois for violating federal polling laws: https://theweek.com/articles/496396/fall-acorn-timeline

    In 2008, Barack Obama paid $832,598 to the ACORN-affiliated Citizens Services Inc. for “sound & lighting equipment” (for his campaign?!). According to ACORN, they only received $30,000 of this money (still a lot of cash for some “equipment”).

    In 1999-2000, at the same time that Wade’s brother Dale Rathke embezzled almost $950,000 from ACORN, Obama was running for president, backed by SEIU Local 880 and ACORN.

    SEIU Local 880 is basically ACORN controlled. ACORN founder Wade Rathke even signed as SEIU Local 880 "Treasurer" in 2000: https://sorendayton.com/is-obama-con...ement-scandal/


    Citizens Services Inc. is registered at the same address as ACORN (just like a bunch of other shell companies)...

    See some of the links from ACORN to Obama’s inner circle, including Citizens Services Inc., Tides and Anna Burger.


    Even though the Tides Foundation heavily funded ACORN; they claimed that “none of their money ever went to ACORN”: https://flutemandy.wordpress.com/pos...hush-up-again/


    In February 2009, Anna Burger was appointed as a member to President Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board to provide advice and counsel in the economic crash.

    In 1972, Burger started her career as a union activist in the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 668. Burger later was elected as Local 668's first female president.
    the SEIU and ACORN have long worked closely together, with the union paying the association more than $3.6 million in the past three years and sharing some office locations and leaders with the group” with the SEIU D.C. headquarters paying ACORN for training, voter registration and other organizing work.
    On 27 September 2007, Anna Burger, John Podesta, and Andrew Stern emailed an interesting memo on the strategy in the coming Obama campaign to several controversial billionaires - George Soros, Peter Lewis, Herb and Marion Sandler, Steve Bing, John Sperling, and Michael Vachon: http://www.discoverthenetworks.com/i...asp?indid=2445
    (http://archive.is/r9yzu)


    Anna Burger was also Vice Chair of the Obama-affiliated Democracy Alliance.
    See (part of) the network of the George Soros controlled Democracy Alliance.


    Tides Foundation founder Drummond Pike is part of the Democracy Alliance.

    Tides Foundation directors Joanie Bronfman (of the infamous Bronfman family) and Quinn Delaney were on Barack Obama’s Inaugural Committee: https://romanticpoet.wordpress.com/t...ma-connection/
