In 2009, Mitchell and Freada Kapor’s non-profit Level Playing Field Institute (“LPFI”) forwarded to Kapor Enterprises “only”  $ 237, 977.00

In 2010, the amount Kapor’s LPFI forwarded to Kapor Enterprises jumped to $391,351.00 — an increase of around $160,000

While other explanations certainly exist, preliminary and ongoing research caused YR to entertain thoughts the additional $160,000 from one entity controlled by Freada and Mitch Kapor (i.e. LPFI) to a separate entity controlled by Freada and Mitch Kapor ( i.e. Kapor Enterprises) stems from a peculiar grant LPFI suddenly obtained from, among others, The California Endowment.

The California Endowment (headed by proxy Robert Ross)  only “makes grants to nonprofit organizations, tribal governments and public agencies that directly benefit the health and well-being of Californians. Level Playing Field Institute (“LPFI”) founded in 2001 by Freada Klein Kapor to encourage kids to pursue careers in the fields commonly know as STEM — science, technology, engineering and math.

In 2010, The California Endowment awarded LPFI the sum of $50,000.

Incidentally, Mitch Kapor — a tech guru in his own right– provided technical assistance to the campaigns of both Barack Obama and Kamala Harris.

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]
  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]
  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows […]
