A few times a year, Sean Hannity, through his organization Freedom Alliance, puts on a series of concerts that have one goal--to raise full and complete college tuition for the sons and daughters of U.S. service personnel who are killed in action. Other funds go to assist military members who have been badly injured in combat zones.

During the promotion of the events, Sean Hannity talks non-stop about the charitable activities and even those who disagree with his politics, have respected his efforts for such a noble cause.

But now, a well documented report (Read The Entire Report Here) has exposed the organization as a huge scam and ripoff.

According to Freedom Alliance's own tax returns, only a tiny amount of the millions raised annually actually goes to the supposed intended recipients--children of those whose parent perished in the line of duty and severely injured vets.

The tiny amount that goes to them is shocking and reprehensible:

According to its 2006 tax returns, Freedom Alliance reported revenue of $10, 822, 785, but only $397,900–or a beyond-measly 3.68%–of that was given to the children of fallen troops as scholarships or as aid to severely injured soldiers.

Freedom Alliance’s 2007 tax returns aren’t much better. Out of $12,459,317 it raised that year, only $895,347–or just 7%–went to seriously wounded troops and scholarships for fallen troops

And then, there are the 2008 Freedom Alliance tax forms, which were signed in November 2009 and filed only recently. That year, Freedom Alliance took in $8,781,431 in revenue and gave $1,060,275.57 total–or just 12%–to seriously wounded soldiers and for scholarships to kids of the fallen.

To make matters worse, Hannity and his entourage fly in ultimate luxury private planes, rent motorcades of the most expensive automobiles and stay in the finest hotels in connection with these events.

I only hated Sean Hannity 90% and gave him 10% credit because of his efforts in raising money for these veterans and their families.

He now joins the rest of them at 100% because of this deplorable scam.

Obama Health Care is HISTORIC

A President of the United States FINALLY stood up to the corporations in America that have decided over the last 100 years that you must be wealthy to have the right not to be sick in America. Barack Obama did not let this dream fade away as many others have in the past and will be remembered 100 years from now as one of the greatest Presidents ever for seeing that all Americans have equal access to health care.

Dan Rather Reports

I went to hear Dan Rather speak tonight in Los Angeles. The veteran newsman had some very compelling things to say. I had heard Dan Rather from the time I was a little boy through his taking over the coveted CBS Evening News anchorman spot. He is certainly qualified to make these observations:

He believes that it is unfortunate that the news has become sensationalized entertainment. "It's much less expensive to throw a bunch of people in a room and let them scream at each other instead of covering wars in other countries." Gee, I wonder which alleged news network he is referring to.

"Five companies own 80% of the broadcasting." He believes that the internet will become the major method people will get their news, surpassing (but not completely replacing) TV, radio and newspapers.

"If you knew just how close the relationship between big business and the government really was, you'd understand how the news gets reported."

He believes that all Americans have an obligation to loudly voice their opinions on what is going on in this country. "Speak Up, Speak Out. Take a Stand. Express Yourself. Don't Let Anybody Intimidate You."

That's what I'm doing Dan.


How many times last year did you have to listen to radio and TV ads from a company named Lifelock--in which the CEO of the company gave out his own Social Security number and said that he doesn't worry at all--because LIFELOCK will protect him from ANY fraudulent attempts made at using his number?

Just like a million other people who signed up for $120. a year service, you were distinctly given the impression that this company was using state of the art technology that would automatically thwart any and all attempts by an impostor trying to use your SSN.

Unfortunately for you, the company was hoping you would get that impression and sign up.

And now the Federal Trade Commission and 35 state attorney generals are making Lifelock offer a full refund to anybody that signed up and are requiring the company to pay a $12 million fine for false, deceptive and misleading advertising.

It turns out that Lifelock was doing nothing more than you could do yourself. They placed a fraud watch on your file at the credit rating companies (which you can do yourself every 90 days). They gave you your credit report which you can get once a year for free. And none of these things can completely stop somebody from fraudulently trying to use your identity.

Last year a man in the south used the CEO's much published SSN to obtain a $500. loan.

The amazing thing is as of yesterday on their website, Todd Davis, the CEO of Lifelock, has taped a quick video in which he makes no mention of the fact that his company has to give anybody who signed up and requests it--a full refund, and that they have to pay $12 million for false and deceptive advertising.

Instead he talks about how being a pioneer in the Identity Fraud business comes with many challenges and how incredible his service is.

You'll notice that most TV networks, radio networks and other major media don't have much to say about this. After all, they perpetuated the whole scam by accepting millions of dollars in ad revenues from the company and are looking forward to more once the new ads are ready.

Corporations in America regularly break state and federal laws and have to pay fines in the millions. They quickly cover this up with shiny new ad campaigns and the public quickly forgets. [NOTE: Lifelock started an extensive new ad campaign the day after I wrote this] In America, you are not to question the nobility of corporations lest you be labeled a Communist.
