She is the woman who, years ago, was convicted of possessing 740 pounds of explosives and who was involved in the Brinks-Nyack robbery in which two cops and a security guard were killed. Documents show that Thousand Currents transferred control of BLM Global Network Foundation and all its assets, including donations, to the Tides Center, a branch of the Tides Foundation.
Tides Foundation was created in the 1970s as a conduit to enable donors to anonymously support left-wing causes. Donors gave checks to Tides, which manages their finances in individual "savings accounts", until a recipient is chosen. Payouts are made as grants, masking the original benefactors' identities from public scrutiny. This process is described as "charitable money-laundering." Tides' biggest donors are foundations, including George Soros's Open Society Foundations, the Hewlett Foundation, and the Ford Foundation. -GEG
