On Earth Day this year, New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio unveiled his Big Apple version of the Green New Deal, called “One NYC 2050: Building a Strong and Fair City.” Despite the proposal’s name, it’s an anemic solution in search of a problem that merely expands the nanny state.

In a move that resembles its more openly extreme counterpart PETA, the Humane Society of the United States used the death of an animal enthusiast to push its political agenda. This week, national news reported on the untimely death of Marvin Hajos. The 75-year-old Florida man owned and bred cassowaries, a large, flightless bird native […]
We haven’t heard from the so-called Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in a while.

About Activist Facts
Activist Facts, a project of the Center for Organizational Research and Education, provides the public and media with in-depth profiles of think tanks, activist groups, and foundations, along with information about the sources of their funding.
Some of these organizations provide a responsible public service. But some, despite their innocent-sounding names, are financial Goliaths that use junk science, intimidation tactics, and even threats of violence to push their radical agendas. We’ve analyzed over 500,000 pages of IRS records to bring you a comprehensive snapshot of where their money comes from, tracking more than $800 million to date.
We also offer valuable information about hundreds of deep-pocketed foundations, activist celebrities, and other key players in the animal rights, “food police,” and eco-terrorism movements.
