TOM RENZ: Transgender Agenda – Follow the Money

Transgender Agenda – Follow the Money

Please support us at, on and at

For those who may have missed it, last week the American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) delivered a scathing denunciation of America’s leading medical institutions – calling on them to halt the drastic gender transition protocols being imposed on vulnerable children.

A newly formed coalition of healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, behavioral health clinicians, and scientists launched the “Doctors Protecting Children Declaration” led by Dr. Jill Simons, Executive Director of the American College of Pediatricians. They are sounding the alarm and criticizing the severe physical and mental health risks associated with “gender-affirming” care.

“We have serious concerns about the physical and mental health effects of the current protocols promoted for the care of children and adolescents in the United States who express discomfort with their biological sex,” said Dr. Simons during the press conference.

This declaration was authored by the American College of Pediatricians, but really it was developed from the expertise of hundreds of doctors, researchers, and other health care workers and leaders who, for years, have been sounding the alarm on the harmful protocols that continue to be promoted by the medical organizations in the United States. Despite recent revelations from the leaked WPATH Files and the recent release of the final report from the Cass Review, these medical organizations have not changed course.”

We are calling on these medical organizations of the United States, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Endocrine Society, the Pediatric Endocrine Society, the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association, and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, to follow the science and their European colleagues and immediately stop the promotion of social affirmation, puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and surgeries for children and adolescents who experience distress over their biological sex. In our declaration, we affirm that sex is a dimorphic innate trait defined in relation to an organism’s biological role in reproduction: male and female.”

A recently published 20-year landmark NIH study ‘Risk of Suicide and Self-Harm Following Gender-Affirmation Surgery’ found that suicide risk increases after gender reassignment surgery. This study dismantles a popular argument wielded by those who fiercely advocate for these radical ‘life saving’ treatments on minors. Parents have been emotionally blackmailed into supporting such procedures – being told that their child is likely to commit suicide if not allowed to ‘transition’ as a minor. In fact, the data proves the opposite is true. Individuals who underwent gender-affirming surgery had a 12.12-fold higher suicide attempt risk than those who did not, and the study concluded that gender-affirming surgery is significantly associated with elevated suicide attempt risks.

Other countries are making a return to common sense and declaring sex as a biological fact and halting various aspects of ‘gender affirming’ treatments including puberty suppressing hormones for minors. A report released by the French government declared that child sex changes could be the ‘greatest ethical scandal in medical history’. The long-term data shows that these procedures on minors are harmful, and consensus is building and being echoed across the world: STOP.

So why aren’t they being stopped in the United States of America? To answer that, we need to follow the money. Always follow the money. We saw a major push for these surgeries in minors (and the entire transgender agenda) during the Obama administration (I’m taking the high road and not commenting on why Obama Mike have such an affinity for the trans stuff… darn typos). A November 2016 article published on revealed that at the very top of the top of the list of U.S. based funders of trans issues in 2011 and 2012 was none other than George Soro’s Open Society Foundation with donations totaling more than 2.7 million dollars.

LGBT Funders report:

“In 2013, significant developments for trans funding included the launch of the Trans Justice Funding Project and a $1.35 million grant from the Tawani Foundation to the Palm Center to examine transgender military service.”

The Tawani Foundation is a ‘philanthropic organization with a focus on Gender & Human Sexuality’. In 2023 it awarded 27 grants totaling over 1.5 million dollars to organizations that further the transgender agenda.

According to Forbes, the CEO of Tawani is Jennifer Pritzker – a retired Army Lieutenant Colonel who came out as a transgender woman in 2013.

He is the world’s only transgender billionaire and has an enormous influence in the rapid institutionalization of transgenderism. He’s a member of the Chicago Pritzker family, one of America’s richest families with a reported combined net worth of over 40 billion dollars. Jennifer’s cousin, J.B. Pritzker is currently the Governor of Illinois.

The family’s massive fortune was obtained in part by their ownership of the Hyatt Hotel chain, and the family invests heavily in the medical-industrial complex. According to published research compiled by Jennifer Bilek, ‘Pritzker owns Squadron Capital, an acquisitions corporation, with a focus on medical technology, medical devices, and orthopedic implants.’ She reports that ‘Pritzker’s funding is not confined to the United States, but reaches other countries via WPATH, in conferences for physicians studying transgender surgery, and funding of international universities.’

Bilek reports that the Pritzker family has deep ties to the Obama administration and was instrumental in getting Obama into office.

Searching Pritzker’s donations via the Tawani Foundation yielded some interesting results including a 230k donation to the Wisconsin Republican Party in 2017 and another 100k in 2018.

We can see Pritzker gave 100k to the anti-Trump Lincoln Project in 2020. According to their website, TLP was ‘founded by former Republican strategists who understood the grave threat of Trumpism to our nation’. The self-proclaimed ‘pro-democracy’ organization seems to have overlooked the fact that we are a Constitutional Republic – not a democracy. The current mission statement on their website includes ‘stopping Trump’ and ‘break[ing] MAGA’.

Lincoln Project supporting Pritzker is also donating to some folks you may have heard of including Niki Haley, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, Chris Sununu, Nancy Mace, Governor Bill Lee, RNC, Act Blue, The Florida Republican party and the Republican Governors Association, etc.

What’s clear is that a pro-trans, anti-Trump, anti-’America First’ transgender billionaire is giving thousands of dollars to both parties in just about every state via his foundation. Many of the donations were made just days before – or on the day of a federal election.

Now, to be clear – there is no crime in donating money to a candidate or PAC. I am not alleging a potential crime here. However, I do think it’s worth ruminating on. Why would a billionaire donor give large amounts of money to those with (alleged) conflicting ideologies and stated goals? Is Jennifer Pritzker just so benevolent that he feels it’s right to support and fund his opposition? Or is it possible Pritzker and the recipients of his money are more aligned than their constituents are aware? Is this just more evidence of RINOs and a ‘uniparty’ being backed by billionaire mega-donors?

According to Jennifer Bilek’s research it is ‘exceedingly rich, white men with enormous cultural influence [that] are funding the transgender lobby and various transgender organizations.’

Some of the other names she mentions:

Pharma and Tech Giants All-In for Transgender: Along with support by pharmaceutical giants such as Janssen Therapeutics, the health foundation of a Johnson and Johnson founder, ViivPfizerAbbott Laboratories, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, and Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, major technology corporations including Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Intel, Dell, and IBM are also funding the transgender project. In February 2017, Apple, Microsoft, Google, IBM, Yelp, PayPal, and 53 other mostly tech corporations signed onto an amicus brief pushing the U.S. Supreme Court to prohibit schools from keeping private facilities for students designated according to sex.”

An internet search revealed additional sources of funding for gender-affirming care and surgeries for transgender minors.

A January 2024 article announced the expected merging of two of the country’s largest transgender rights organizations. The National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF). Looking at TLDEF, an organization that works to advance trans rights through litigation (that also receives large donations from Jennifer Pritzker) – we can see immediately who they partner with. Gilead.

Why won’t they stop pushing these surgeries on kids? Looking at the evidence it appears that those pushing the agenda – are the ones set to profit from it.

  1. This is a great report.

    In Illinois, we have this awful governor, who bought the job. His sister is “rebuilding” Ukraine.

  2. Yep. And Pritzkers are on Epsteins flight list. How much did the pervert family donate to Epstein’s causes? This is all a cruel, money making experiment. Transitioners will need 1.5 Million in maintenance drugs throughout their lives. If they are given mental health care, most of those people are as loony as their profession, normally mental health care would resolve their issues but when the “professional” is on board and ready and willing to rubber stamp the child if they merely utter, I’m confused. They don’t want people to talk about the cruelty they suffer AFTER the botched experimental transitioning, no other doctors will touch them with oozing open wounds – they, if they can, have to go back to their Frankenstein doctor. THIS HAS TO STOP. CVMosby medical textbook by Dr. Goldfarb (circa mid 80’s) They want organizations to pay for transitioning because medical insurance denies it… like the US military.
