Thumbs down Kelloggs cereal donates $3Million to Anti-Trump campaign

I prefer my food to not be involved in politics.

People know I am not a Trump fanboy, but I'm not anti-Trump either. I suggested caution regarding expectations with Trump, I was skeptical about his conservative positions, but damn I didn't expect my morning cereal to be leading the charge (along side of Soros) to smear Trump either.

Seems that both the Kellogg's Foundation and socialist George Soros both donated $3 MILLION each to anti-Trump groups.

Revealed: Big Corporate $$$ Behind Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ PAC… Kellogg Foundation, Soros Groups Contribute $6M+

Left-Wing Kellogg Foundation Controls Kellogg Cereal Company

John Carney4 Oct 2017


Every time an American family picks up a box of Kellogg’s cereal at the grocery store, it is contributing to the wealthy radical leftwing foundation that agitates for open borders, supports George Soros’s Open Society Insitute, and other leftwing causes.

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is the largest shareholder of the Kellogg Company. According to its 2016 tax filing, the Kellogg Foundation’s trust owns approximately $5.2 billion of stock in the company, about 20 percent of the company’s equity. The other large holders are mostly passive investors such as mutual funds and their ownership is a fraction of the foundation’s. That means that the foundation effectively controls the famous cereal company.

Kellogg Company is the foundation’s largest holding. The foundation and its trust have a total of $9.1 billion of assets. All of its other diversified stock investments total just $3.3 million. As a result, the foundation itself is heavily dependent on the profits of Kellogg for income. When Kellogg makes money, the foundation has more to spend on its leftwing causes.

Chex is better anyway. Crispix is a cheap knockoff.

I am surprised that I have any because I usually just buy the generic junk at Costco. I do buy Quaker Oats even though they are made in Chicago. I figure working there beats dealing drugs and rioting.
