As you know, my expose on Sean Hannity’s Freedom Alliance charity scam cheating severely wounded troops and the children of the fallen and my follow-up on the Freedom Concert fraud and profits, and how Hannity’s private jet rides were funded resulted in Charity Navigator cutting the charity’s rating in half and reducing its rating to “needs improvement.” It also resulted in FOX News calling Hannity back from the Cincinnati Tea Party and the people running the tea party being forced to post a budget of their spending and costs of the event online. Everything he touches turns to . . . well, the same substance that comes out of his mouth–very rich fertilizer from which nothing grows.
Sadly, some people don’t get it. Or rather, they do get it, but they want to get on FOX News and so they keep their lips firmly planted on Hannity’s exhaust pipe. And that especially goes for a fraudulent, exaggerated, and flat-out lying, so-called “debunking” of my work, which actually debunked nothing at all. The item was written by a puka-shell-wearing stooge of spineless David Frum, named Tim Mak. (I’m told that the reason Frum did a 180 after initially praising my investigation of Hannity got a call from FOX News people, including Hannity himself, telling him that if he ever wanted to be on FOX News again . . . . I’m also told it was a desperate attempt to keep his job at AEI, which he lost anyway. So sad, too bad.)
I was going to go through and respond to Mak’s phoniness, but why bother when a very smart liberal YouTuber, “Cristoballs,” made some excellent videos (above) about it, responding to Mak and blowing him and his empty claims and lies away–yes, apparently, it takes a liberal these days, since conservatives circle their very shallow wagons around the equally shallow Hannity and won’t tell the truth. Unfortunately, this liberal is much too kind to Lee Doren, who isn’t the brightest bulb or even just slightly dim. Ditto for the empty-headed and dishonest folks at Big Follywood and the rest of the not-so-Bright-bart websites which repeated the false denials as fact. (Cristoballs finally wakes up to what a dummy and incompetent Doren is in his later videos.)
Mak’s claims and the Freedom Alliance’s empty denials were repeated by an uber-geek named Lee Doren, who has very bizarre and creepy man-crushes on male conservatives for whom he makes lying videos in defense of them against me. He has some sort of weird one-sided obsession with me. And he’s one of those people we’ve all encountered in life–always a geek who will never be cool, so he tries to be cool by osmosis by sucking up to the guys he perceives as cool and to whom he wants to be close. But he was a little late because I’d already followed-up, exposing who really owns and runs the Freedom Concerts and takes the lions’ share of the money: Hannity and his cronies at Premiere Marketing, Inc.–and that they use Freedom Concert revenue to pay for Hannity’s private jets. And neither he nor puka-shell boy Tim Mak have responded to that with further lies to “bolster” Hannity. As I noted, only Charity Navigator has responded and downgraded Freedom Alliance accordingly.
Doren is yet another substandard character with a law degree biding his time at a tax-deductible non-profit. He works at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, and I’m told that contributors to the non-profit organization are wondering why the organization’s in-house lawyer (CORRECTION: he’s merely an employee there, not competent enough to be a lawyer for even CEI) is spending so much time on non-CEI-related stuff and instead making self-promoting videos and posts on his blog, which defend outright fraud and rip-offs. Doren graduated from my alma mater, the University of Michigan, with the degree universal to the dumb athletes who didn’t deserve to get in and can’t compete academically: communications. Sadly for him, the degree was especially useless. YouTube’s “Cristoballs” owned him and jolly puka-shell dude.
You have not heard the end of this. I have much more to come on the Sean Hannity, the Freedom Alliance charity scam, and the Freedom Concerts con. Stay tuned.
