Sean Hannity’s “Freedom Alliance” a scam? No, apparently Debbie Schlussel is just BATSHIT CRAZY!

Debbie Schlussel thinks so.  I don’t know anything about her except that she is a self-professed conservative and an attorney.  She claims to have looked into the finances of Hannity’s “Freedom Concerts” and found that most of the money was going for extravagant expenses, and very little was going to help wounded troops and the children of slain troops.  She’s a lawyer, and she would be suicidal to print this without the goods to back it up.  She’d be sued for defamation faster than Bubba Clinton’s pants drop for an intern.   Here is a taste:

….”Keep in mind that a charity is considered reputable if no more than 25% of its revenue goes to expenses and no less than 75% of it goes to the intended charity recipients.  Given that, Freedom Alliance’s balance sheets are embarrassing in their shamelessness.”

“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.”

“On the other hand, 62% of the money went to “expenses,” including $979,485 for “consultants” and an “advisor.” Yes, consultant/advisors got more than double what injured troops and the kids of fallen troops got. The tax forms show that “New World Aviation” got paid $60,601 for “air travel.” Was that for Hannity’s G5? Like I said, neither the charity nor Hannity is talking. And finally, that year, Freedom Alliance spent $1,730,816 on postage and shipping and $1,414,215 on printing, for a total of $3,145,031, nearly half the revenue the charity spent that year and about eight times what the injured troops and the children of fallen ones received….”

I’m a fan of Hannity. I hope Schlussel is all wrong.  If this is correct, he ought to be run out of the country.

UPDATE:  Freerepublic notes that “Freedom Alliance” is “a four star rated charity by Charity Navigator, an independent charity rating service.

UPDATE II: Debbie Schlussel may in fact be a dumb bitch who gets off lying about conservatives.  See this youtube video where she attacked Steven Crowder.  (Sorry, folks, I didn’t know anything about her before today…)

UPDATE III:  “Freedom Alliance” responds.  Sue the bitch if what she said is wrong.

UPDATE IV:  Frum Forum gets the last word, I think.  Note, Batshit Crazy girl even tried to defend herself in the comment section.  “Hannity got to you…”

  1. Cap, Debbie Slutsel (aka “Tits on a Chair” is well known for being a dumb-assed cow.

    Google “site:nicedoggie.net ‘tits on a chair'” and you’ll see what I mean. This is not a nice woman we’re dealing with here.

  2. Concurred. Upon further review it appears she is but another lib “sheeple”. This is one case where I am glad to find such blathering to be s*it and not substance.

  3. Damn…and I just posted over at Frum’s…must be gettin’ old?

    Good old, “Hammerhead Hannity”; always knew he was a damn fast talker and now this sneaky, CYA, comparison and juxtaposition with respect to other charity’s expenses…while lining my jean’s sorta scam.

    Doesn’t surprise me a tall.

    My Daddy used to say; “Just remember son, no one has ever talked fast enough to stay outta jail”!

  4. Debbie Schlussel is smart — although she is not infallible and can be a bit quirky at times. Still and all, Debbie Schlussel investigates things few others will (e.g., Muslim organized crime in the Detroit area — crime that the “authorities” largely choose to ignore). She also calls out Fox News for their failure to probe adequately certain stories where the culprits are Muslims. (Fox is, after all, part-owned by a Saudi; but, please, no one pay any attention to the man behind the curtain!) Anyone who thinks calling her “t-ts on a chair” is an argument has a learning deficiency. Most females would meet that description when sitting at a computer. It is called a “tautology.” Also, anyone who says Ms Schlussel is not a conservative either: 1) Does not really know anything about Ms Schlussel; or 2) Does not really know anything about what it means to be a conservative. (Note: Being a conservative does not mean we knee-jerk take up for everyone else’s talk radio fave. For instance: You may like Hannity, while I like Savage. Not too complicated, really.)

  5. Man in Tx: No one is arguing her politics (directly). But I am saying that there is more evidence of her being a loose cannon and FOS via-a-vis her reporting than there is evidence of her journalistic prowess.

    But, for the record? She may be Republican, she may be Conservative – I dunno. But at this point I am NOT convinced her report is for real, or without a self-serving angle.

    And no, I am neither a Hannity apologist, and only an occasional viewer/listener. I am just looking at this as it is.

  6. Debbie Schlussel is very opinionated. She also does research. She makes waves, and angers other conservatives. Still, does Levin like Beck? Does Hannity like Beck? Hannity apparently told Ann Coulter not to appear on a NY-area radio show or no more invites to his show. He has the CW stars on his show frequently. A supposedly heroic right-winger and supporter of Israel, Sean never challenged Bush about The Road Map policy. He also appeared to be ‘in’ on whatever was going on with Gannon or Guckert or whoever – something was fishy there and only the libs covered it. So everybody serves their own personal cause first of all, it seems. Schlussel may be right or part-right or wrong, but ripping her up personally is a sign of, I don’t know what.

  7. I read Debbie Schlussels story – the tax return were shown along with amounts given to wounded soldiers :EX; $ 165 .00 for soldier blinded and face blown apart–$200.00 for soldier who lost 2 arms and 1 leg. Charity is expense top heavy ans the scholarship fund for children of fallen soldiers hasn’t given out much either.

  8. I don’t know man, those facts seem pretty fucking unimpeachable. I’m not the biggest DS or SH fan either way, but facts are facts.

    SH has some ‘splainin to do.

  9. Russ, did you read the rebuttal? Sean Hannity has nothing to do with running the charity. He’s not on the board. He pays all his own expenses. If there is a problem with it being a scam, I don’t see this as being created by him. At the most, he is guilty of not better overseeing what others are doing.

  10. Ok, fair enough. I don’t have enough of an interest to parse the tax returns closely enough to decide who’s telling the truth and the whole truth. We got bigger fish to fry, as they say.

    Debbie, like man in tx said, has done really outstanding work in the past on radical islam infiltration that nobody else would touch so I would never condemn her outright without knowing all there is to know. And I’m not really a Hannity guy either. I got nothing against him, he’s just not my cup of tea.

    I was simply taking Debbie’s word for it because she really has done bang-up, rock solid research in the past on a really touchy subject that needs to be told. I was giving her the benefit of the doubt. That’s all.

  11. Y’all know that most reporters in the lame stream media don’t particularly like Sean Hannity because of his ultra conservative views. I don’t know and have never heard of this Debbie Schussel. So I’d be rather suspicious of anything she says. Possibly she’s a RINO like John McCain and Lindsey Graham. And also, when someone reports a story on the basis of “I heard it from a friend of a friend”…well…kind of smells a little like BS to me.

  12. “Anyone who thinks calling her “t-ts on a chair” is an argument has a learning deficiency.”

    Oh, I am _so_ wounded. An assclown with the IQ of a short bus accuses me of having a “learning deficiency”.

    You don’t like it, dumbass, come do something about it. Perhaps you’d like to take it up with Misha, who coined the original moniker. Or Dr. Rusty Shackleford, who labeled her a “blogtard”. Or Tim Mak at the FrumForum, who basically said Slutsel has her head up her ass.

    So do we _all_ have “learning deficiencies”, Einstein? Inquiring minds would like to know!

  13. Debbie Schlussel has zero credibility on this issue. She intentionally omitted the fact that Sean Hannity has no role of authority at Freedom Alliance. He is not on the board of directors, he is not on staff, and he is not paid or reimbursed for anything related to the charity. She cherry-picked her “facts” in order to write a hit piece on Sean Hannity. This is not the first time she’s done it. I’ve studied the 990 forms from Freedom Alliance, and she has twisted and distorted their information until it does not represent the truth. Shame on Debbie Schlussel.

  14. Debbie Schlussel’s piece was exactly as akw described – a twisted and selectively reported “hit job”. Fortunately, anyone with an IQ in excess of their waist size would figure that out after some fact checking.

    And again, Debbie may be a conservative (natch) but she does not appear to be a particular good reporter. Fiction writer, perhaps, but not a reporter.

  15. I like her update: Now Erick Erickson of RedState is an “antiSemite” because he disagrees with her sliming of Hannity. I stand by my “batshit crazy” assessment of her.

  16. Concurred John. Standing with you on that one.

    Also, I responded to your email.

  17. Debbie Schlussel has more intelligence than 1,ooo “Seans” put together.What kind of degree does Sean have?An entertainment degree from Walmart ?..No substance,no ability for telling the truth.He just blabs & lies all day long for his paycheck!..FOX has trained him very well! Good Doggie,Sean,I give him an A++. You go Debbie..get the rest of the truth & all the facts out there for all to see..the time has come for Sean & the rest of the FOX, so called,entertainers
    to be exposed for their hypocrisy.

  18. Just because Debbie Schussel is a woman doesn’t mean She’s the be all to end all. A lot of women are very intelligent and have a lot of common sense. But there are some women that have no common sense and are as crazy as a sh!thouse rat. Miss Schussel belongs in this second group. I’m just suprised she hasn’t been commited yet.

  19. MrG,There are some men that have no common
    sense & are as crazy as a “sh!thouse rat” ..YOU & all the hate-talkers of the right wing talk shows belong in this group!..AND.. why haven’t
    they all been committed? Suprising,isn’t it!

  20. Who said anything about hate?. Why is it whenever someone doesn’t agree with the liberal perspective, they’re labeled as “haters” or “racists”. Is that the only ammunition you liberals carry around?

  21. Sigh…I read Debbie’s blog all the time. She does great work on radical Islam (oxymoron?) in America and everywhere else it crops up. BUT…when she has a beef with someone, for whatever reasons, she NEVER lets go. So, while I disagree with her a lot of the time (especially how mean she can be when discussing other women) I would def. hire her as a lawyer.

    And yea, I thinks she’s a little nuts…in fact the way I found your site was by googling “debbie schlussel is bathshit crazy”. : )
