The word hasn’t been penned that could capture just how abhorrent Joe Biden is after federal tax filings for his Biden Cancer Initiative proved the President and first lady Jill Biden had been running a charity scam.
The Biden Cancer Initiative was a short-lived cancer nonprofit that was launched in New York on June 26, 2017, in the afterglow of the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot of 2016.
The supposed charity ran for two years, suspending operations after Joe Biden announced his 2020 presidential run.
Joe and Jill Biden founded the supposed Cancer charity to give hope to the millions of heartbroken parents who lost their children to cancer.
But instead, they scammed millions of dollars out of innocent Americans who have been victimized by this hideous disease.
Joe Biden Cancer Charity Scam
The Biden Cancer Initiative was founded in 2017 after Joe Biden’s son Beau had tragically died from a brain tumor two years earlier.
But according to their 990 federal tax filings, their charity gave out ZERO MONEY for research and/or grants.
Even more repugnant a majority of the over 4 million dollars the Biden Cancer Initiative scammed off cancer survivors went to paying the salaries of dozens of former Obama/Biden administration aides.
After leaving office in 2017, Joe and Jill Biden started the charity which was supposed to build upon the Obama/Biden administrations Cancer Moonshot program.
The Cancer Moonshot was an effort to accelerate progress in cancer research,
The Biden Cancer Initiative officially launched in New York on June 26, 2017.
According to their literature, they promised to build on the work done by the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot:
“develop and drive implementation of solutions to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, research, and care, and to reduce disparities in cancer outcomes.”

But according to Cancerletter.org who defended the Biden Cancer Initiative expenditures:
The New York Post is factually correct on one point: The Biden Cancer Initiative funded no research. That’s because, again, it was never intended to.
EXCEPT…According to their Own 2017 Press Statement:
“Every minute, every day matters to patients and we must bring that same sense of urgency to cancer research and care systems.
We are joining everyone who spends their days thinking about preventing cancer, about better understanding its biological basis, about bringing early detection and education to all communities, about developing new treatments and therapies, and about caring for patients and their families through some of the hardest days anyone faces.
We are on your team. And we are proud to be working alongside you.”
The Biden Cancer Initiative statement makes it quite clear to prospective donors that their hard-earned donations would be spent on research and developing new treatments and therapies.
Every day, people are dying. Every day, people are looking for a reason to hope. Every minute of every day matters to patients.
We must bring that same urgency to our cancer research and care systems.
So how in the world do people defending the Biden Cancer Initiative claim that this charity never intended to spend money on research?
If you want to know just how comical the Cancerletter.com’s defense was they wrote:
The New York Post story was written by Isabel Vincent, a Canadian. The Daily Mail story had no byline. The Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch, and the Daily Mail is a London-based tabloid.
Wait. What? And the left ripped Donald Trump for four years claiming he’s xenophobic?
The Biden Cancer Initiative Took In Over $4 Million and Spent $0 On Research
For the fiscal years 2017 and 2018 it shows that it received a total of $4,809,619 in “gifts” grants, contributions, and membership fees,” which includes $2,886,167 in public donations.
That money went toward paying bloated salaries of The Biden charity leadership:
President, Gregory Simon, raked in $429,850 in fiscal 2018.
Simon, a former Pfizer executive, and longtime health care lobbyist who headed up the Obama/Biden White House cancer task force, saw his salary nearly double from the $224,539 he made in fiscal 2017.
Vice President Danielle Carnival took home $258,207 in 2018.
Carnical was the former chief of staff for Obama’s cancer initiative, became VP in charge of policy, and partnership development for Biden’s Cancer Moonshot Task Force.
They also spent:
- In 2017, $56,738 on conferences which in 2018 increased to $742,953
- In 2017, $59,356 on travel, which swelled to $97,149 in 2018
But under grants distributed, their tax filings showed exactly ZERO DOLLARS spent in both 2017 and 2018.

Why Is TuskerDaily Asking “When Will Congress, DOJ Investigate Biden Cancer Initiative Scam?”
Before Donald Trump pulled off the greatest political upset in American history.
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee started asking the Justice Department to investigate the Donald J. Trump Foundation.
During the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Trump claimed that his charity event raised $6 million for veteran’s causes, including purportedly one million of his own money.
On March 4, 2019, new House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler issued a subpoena to the Trump Foundation Charity for copies of a broad range of documents.
So if the Democrats can claim that Trump’s charity was a front to pay exorbitant salaries and/or kickbacks to Trump’s Republican supporters.
Then certainly an investigation into where the Biden Cancer Initiative spent over $4 million dollars in donations is valid.
