House Ethics Committee Unanimously Rules Rashida Tlaib Violated Campaign Finance Law

The House Ethics Committee has ruled that Rashida Tlaib violated campaign finance law by paying herself from campaign funds after she was elected to congress. But they declared that yes she took the money but she wasn’t trying to steal it, she thought she was entitled to it.

Can you imagine a courtroom over a hundred years ago> He stands up and says, “Yes, Frank and Jesse James did take that money from the train but they thought they were entitled to it?

Therefore, you cannot find them guilty. They will be allowed to repay the money over the next few robberies. She owes $10,8000 to her campaign.

They are giving Tlaib a year to repay the money back to her campaign. Other than repaying the money she took, she will receive no punishment. She gets to waltz home as free as a bird.

She is not eligible for payments from her campaign this year since she is already an employee of congress and she continues to get paid regardless of how much time she decides to take off for campaigning.

The committee said there is ample evidence that she received the money she is not entitled to but also ruled it wasn’t intentional and to use that as an excuse to let her walk.

The committee determined:

“determined that the evidence is sufficient to support a determination that a portion of the salary payments that Representative Tlaib received after the 2018 general election was inconsistent with the requirements outlined by [FECA] and its implementing regulations.”

“The Committee also recognizes, however, that Representative Tlaib’s violation of the applicable restrictions was one of bad timing and not ill intent. Representative Tlaib engaged in good faith efforts to comply with the relevant FECA requirements.”

As long as someone is a candidate they can pay themselves a salary which is less than they made the year before but once they win the election, they are no longer a candidate and cannot continue to pay him or herself.

She paid herself $2,000 every two weeks during the campaign which is below the amount she could draw. It’s a nice job if you can get it.

Four Portland Teenagers Facing Federal Charges Related To Violent Protests

Four Portland Teenagers Facing Federal Charges Related To Violent Protests

Four teens were arrested in Portland were arrested on a variety of charges such as arson, assault and trespassing.

As with most liberal cities, rioters are free from all charges shortly after being arrested, but when they are charged with federal crimes, convictions and prison are much more likely.

All of the four arrested were so done because of attacks on the federal courthouse in Portland, located in the Mark O Hatfield building. The attacks have been going on there for quite a spell.

Much longer than the federal agents sent in to protect the building. If left up to Mayor Ted Wheeler, the building would be nothing but ash and rubble.

The four teens include 18-year-old men Isaiah Jason Maza Jr., Gabriel Agard-Berryhill and Wyatt Ash-Milby, and 19-year-old Rowan Olsen.

They have been released from custody pending their trials. Since the feds were sent in to protect the courthouse, they have arrested a couple of dozen violent protesters.

On Monday night, the Portland police declared “unlawful assembly. Not that it cuts any ice with thugs up there but after a few are tried under federal law, especially for assault of federal agents, they will learn to maybe tone it done on federal property. federal crimes carry much more harsh sentences that state or city charges if they are tried at all.

After the deployment of numerous agents from federal agencies to Portland, there have been several arrests at #antifa riots.

The agents are not subject to the same hand-tying placed on @PortlandPolice. I will name those arrested & charged in this thread. #PortlandRiots pic.twitter.com/xrNYUG9Gso

FBI Raids US Company with Ties to Ukrainian Bank — Tied to Hunter Biden’s Burisma, Lost Billions in IMF and US Funds

FBI Raids US Company with Ties to Ukrainian Bank — Tied to Hunter Biden’s Burisma, Lost Billions in IMF and US Funds

The FBI has raided the offices of Optima Management Group in Cleveland and Miami. The company has ties to Privatize Bank that was founded by Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky. Kolomoisky also owned Burisma Holdings that hired Devon Archer and Hunter Biden onto the board of directors.

Privat Bank received billions of dollars from the IMF. It is believed that much of the money was laundered and later was embezzled by Kolomoisky. The money was allegedly laundered through shell companies in Cyprus, Belize and the British Virgin Islands. Then much of the money was run through  Optima Management Group.

The FBI is very interested in how much money the fund received and where did it go. It has been rumored that Hunter Biden was paid a little over $83,000 a month with laundered funds.

MUST READ: Ukraine Burisma Story is Massive – Involves BILLIONS of IMF and US Funds Looted and Lost by Bank Connected to Burisma Holdings!

Privat Group is controlled by Ukraine’s largest commercial bank. Kolomoisky owned the bank but the government seized Privat Bank and Burisma on the grounds that he was using his companies to launder and embezzled There are billions not yet accounted for and the FBI is wanting to find hidden accounts or perhaps real estate purchases that are generating income for Kolomoisky.

At least one member of congress could be sweating bullets right now. That would be Rep Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. Her husband was hired by several Kolomoisky businesses and was paid $700,000 for alleged legal services. This investigation could suck both Mucarsel-Powell and her husband Bob into where and how the money originated from and what does Bob Powell know about Kolomoisky’s money laundering.

From The Gateway Pundit

Privat Group is controlled by Ukraine’s largest commercial bank, PrivatBank, whose owner was Igor Kolomoisky. PrivatBank was later nationalized by the Ukraine in December 2016, taking 100% control of the PrivatBank entity, a month after the 2016 US election:

The international financial agency had rushed the money to Ukraine in April, in response to what IMF managing director Christine Lagarde called a “major crisis.” She went on to hail the government’s “unprecedented resolve” in developing a “bold economic program to secure macroeconomic and financial stability.” Over the next five months the international agency poured the equivalent of $4.51 billion ($2.97 billion in “Special Drawing Rights”—the IMF’s own currency) into the National Bank of Ukraine— the country’s central bank. Much of this money was urgently needed to prop up the local commercial banks. In theory, the IMF appeared to require direct supervision of how the Ukrainian banks used the aid. In fact, it appears the banks got to select their own auditors.” [source]

Large Cities See Surge in Homicide Rates and Crime

Large Cities See Surge in Homicide Rates and Crime

Stay-at-home orders. A worldwide pandemic. Unemployment. Tense race relations. Protests and riots. Police departments defunded. The summer heat. 

It’s no wonder cities like New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago are reporting greater homicides and shootings than have been seen in previous years. Dozens of other cities are reporting the same. According to a recent Wall Street Journal study in which 50 of the nation’s largest cities were analyzed, homicides are up 24% this year.

It’s been an intense year for the entire world, so an increase in crime rates shouldn’t come as a total surprise. But it should give us pause. 

Over the weekend New York City surpassed the number of shootings in the entire year of 2019 (777 shootings as of the end of July, compared to a total of 776 shootings overall for 2019). 

There have been over 1,000 shootings in Philadelphia (of which, 240 resulted in death).

And in Chicago, 2,240 people have been shot, 440 of which resulted in death.

According to the Wall Street Journal report, homicide rates have increased both for cities which are accustomed to high rates of violence and for those cities which are not. 

Conservatives and liberals are blaming different causes for this increase. The right, including President Trump, have blamed movements to defund police departments and a general attitude of hatred toward police officers for contributing toward a disregard for law and order in our cities.

Conservatives propose solutions such as strengthening police departments (rather than defunding them), and cracking down on riots and violent crime. 

The left, however, has pointed to poverty as a main cause for increased violence. 

U.S. House Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came under fire from House Republicans after declaring earlier in July that “Crime is a symptom of a diseased society that neglects its most marginalized people, and we do not solve that problem with police.”

Ocasio-Cortez continued: “Maybe if we…give people repeated stimulus checks so that they feel like they can stay in their homes, maybe we’ll see a mitigation of crime.” 

For the left, the solution to crime is to fund community efforts such as education, social work, and housing programs.

For perspective, Forbes pointed out that in 1990, New York City had a reported 2,262 homicides. While rising crime rates should give us pause, we can still be thankful that we are still experiencing lower crime rates than in decades past. 

Portland Has Fallen As Over 150 Shots Fired In The Democrat ‘Controlled’ City Over Night

Portland Has Fallen As Over 150 Shots Fired In The Democrat ‘Controlled’ City Over Night

Opinion| The peaceful protesters are at it again in Portland.  Just in case you wanted a glimpse of what the people who think Trump is evil look like, you need to look no further than Portland, Oregon.

For over 2 months now, a fight has been raging against radical left wing ‘protesters’ and a federal building and any law enforcement officer trying to protect the building and/or restore order to the city.

Four days ago it was reported that ‘Trump administration in talks with Oregon governor about pulling agents in Portland’ by KATU 2, among others.

The local network reported:

‘The Trump administration has started talks with the Oregon governor’s office and indicated that it would begin to draw down the presence of federal agents sent to quell two months of chaotic protests in Portland if the state stepped up its own enforcement, a senior White House official said Tuesday.

The official stressed to The Associated Press that the talks with the office of Democratic Gov. Kate Brown are in the early stages and there is no agreement. The official was not authorized to publicly discuss private conversations and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The nightly protests often spiral into violence as demonstrators target the U.S. courthouse with rocks, fireworks and laser pointers and federal agents respond with tear gas, less-lethal ammunition and arrests.’

Well, last night was no exception, in fact, things seem to have gotten considerably worse as Fox News is reporting that:

‘More than 150 rounds were fired and one woman was shot in Portland on Friday night while protesters on Saturday – some of whom appeared to impersonate press – threw glass bottles and shined lasers at city police officers sent to quell the nighttime unrest witnessed for more than two months straight.

Saturday marked the third night of federal and state law enforcement cooperation in Portland, as the Department of Homeland Security continues to weigh plans to withdraw from the liberal Oregon city. It was the 64th straight day of violent demonstrations and rioting in Portland.

A shooting rang out about 11:08 p.m. Friday outside an apartment building near the 600 Block of NE 87th Avenue. The Portland Police Bureau said in an update Saturday that more than 150 rounds were fired and bullets struck at least eight occupied apartments and seven vehicles. One round struck a woman in the arm, and responding officers applied a tourniquet before she was transported to the hospital by ambulance with injuries that were not life-threatening.

“This is America and it’s a war zone with 150 shots in an apartment complex close to a Christian university. How can we explain that?” Aragon Marks, who lives at the building, told Fox 12 Oregon.’

Just in case you have not realized it, this is an insurrection and it is only going to get worse if President Trump wins and if Biden becomes President, look out because the people rioting each night may very well end up being Joe’s brown shirts …

Man Decapitates Landlord With A Samurai Sword … When Arrested He Claims Sovereign Status

Man Decapitates Landlord With A Samurai Sword … When Arrested He Claims Sovereign Status

Lawrence David| Jerry David Thompson was charged with using a samurai sword to decapitate his Connecticut landlord after a dispute over unpaid rent.

At his arraignment in Superior Court in Hartford, Jerry David Thompson refused to say anything about the crime, claiming he is a sovereign citizen.

Those claiming to be sovereign citizens believe that U.S. citizens are subject only to common law or “constitutional law” (or both), but are not bound to obey statutory law.

No court has ever upheld these claims and it doesn’t appear that the one in which he was arraigned will, either.  Thompson was ordered held in lieu of $2 million bail.

Thompson, 42, was arrested on Sunday and charged the following day with the murder of 64-year-old Victor King, according to the Hartford Police Department.

Thompson had been renting a room in King’s home for less than a year.  Authorities targeted him as a suspect after King’s friends reported that King and Thompson had had disagreements over rent, according to a report by the Hartford Courant.

On Saturday, King, a retired insurance salesman turned professional bridge player, reported to Hartford police that Thompson had been waving the sword at him.

The next day friends of King, concerned because they couldn’t reach him, alerted police that they couldn’t reach him.

When police and firefighters forced their way into King’s home they found it covered in blood, with King’s headless and badly slashed body wrapped in bedding.

Police found Thompson pulled over by the side of a road.  They brought him back to police HQ for questioning, but he refused to say anything claiming to be a sovereign citizen.

I’m no expert on sovereign citizenship but it’s hard to envision any belief system that justifies the taking of another person’s life.

If the argument between King and Thompson was caused by an inability to pay because of a recent layoff or furlough due to the Wuhan virus lockdowns would this be classified as a … you know what death?  Asking for a friend.

Man Gets 20 Years in Prison for Threatening Donald Trump, Prosecutor

Man Gets 20 Years in Prison for Threatening Donald Trump, Prosecutor

Authorities charged 28-year-old Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pennsylvania with threatening to put a bullet in President Trump and  Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli . He also said that he would use lethal force on police. He will have to wait 20 years to put that plan into action as that is what he has been sentenced to.

Christy led police on a wild chase that covered several states and Canada before he was finally caught. Being an unhinged leftist did not work for him.

He got his fifteen minutes of fame but it cost him 20 years of his life. But considering he is a leftist, he may not miss out on much.

He had better learn to calm down. If he makes threats against other prisoners, he could be walking around with ten pounds of shivs sticking out all over his body.

Making threats there could easily get you a life sentence. Of course, it would be a very short sentence.

Immediately after making the threats, Christy went on a three-month crime spree in which he robbed Hazleton Oil where he used to work, Skipper Dipper in Schuylkill County, even the Scranton School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

He robbed homes and stole cars in at least six states. (There’s no truth that Biden is considering him for VP,,,,Well, hardly any truth)

Christ handled his own defense which meant he had a fool for a client and the client had a fool for a lawyer. He made the claim that he had been unfairly targeted by the government.

From Breitbart News

At the hearing, the judge referred to him as “painting a picture of a man to be feared,” according to WFMZ.

“For about an hour and a half of the hearing Christy objected to details of a pre-sentence report. During the hearing he said that he knew the government did not like him and that he felt dehumanized,” the article noted.

However, his mother told the judge Thursday that her son had cognitive and mental health issues, adding that the sentence should be lower or he should be given help while in prison.

 

Gruesome Photo of a Severed Pig’s Head on Fire, Death Threats in Portland, Animal Abuse, Arson and Lawlessness, Wheeler Says “Thank You”

Gruesome Photo of a Severed Pig’s Head on Fire, Death Threats in Portland, Animal Abuse, Arson and Lawlessness, Wheeler Says “Thank You”

The city of Portland Oregon has been the scene of 60 days of rebellious insurrection against the Federal Court House there, requiring President Donald J. Trump to send in Department of Homeland Security and other Federal Agents to protect the US Marshalls and the federal property.

Rioters, anarchists, and domestic terrorists have been relentless in defacing and attacking the law enforcement there, hurling projectiles, and attempting to tear now safety fencing around the building.

The Democrats and media have been proving cover these criminal acts by referring to the rioters as “peaceful protestors”, and insisting that Trump is acting illegally.

Radical leftist Mayor of Portland carries the message of the insurrection and says the protestors are “peaceful and thanks them.

Friday, hours after photos of what can be nothing less than a death threat to the federal agents the mob calls “pigs” emerged on social media, Far-left radical Democrat Ted Wheeler thanks the rioters for their powerful message.

Andy Ngo, a journalist who has been covering the violent uprisings in Portland posted a photo of a severed pig’s head, stuck on a flag pole and lit on fire.

Ngo added that the group he called “Antifa” put a police hat on the pig before they set it on fire.

Video footage shows the Pig’s head burning on top of an American Flag, with music playing and then the sound of mobs screaming “Our Streets”.

Ngo reports on a pig that was found and rescued after being found abandoned.

Arson is a favored tactic of the mobs, and now we are learning that brutal animal sacrifice might be as well.

 

Leftist Busted: Is the DeFund the Police Movement Really a Huge Mental Health Crisis? ‘Black Trans Drug Users Matter’ Advocate Sets up NYPD

Leftist Busted: Is the DeFund the Police Movement Really a Huge Mental Health Crisis? ‘Black Trans Drug Users Matter’ Advocate Sets up NYPD

Transgender activists posted online about another Transgender “woman” who was having a mental health crisis and needed police intervention enough that it was determined someone should contact the NYPD for help,  and the advocates took the opportunity to post that they were unhappy with the background of the law enforcement officers who answered a 911 call, and the police procedures enacted to safely remove the person in danger.

The Transgender “woman” who placed the call also made a video and said that there was the hope of someone to intervene for the “Black trans woman” who had a mental health and counseling background because the law enforcement officers were too scary.

Before the Trans Activist posted on the night of the 30th, about the mental crisis of another Trans person, interestingly the same activist had come to the conclusion that police and emergency medical people were murderous on the morning of the June 29:

But that did not stop them from calling 911, and reporting concern for a friend.

One poster on Twitter following the story of the 30th,  posted, “This is why we need mental health wards open and available again. So people can go to facilities where they can get the real help they need. This is clearly not the first incident for your friend, and she needs real help and evaluation.”

Instead of medical facilities for mental health crises, the group of activists wants heightened sensitivity from all public officials,  to the mental health crisis of Trans people.

The situation ended peacefully, with the person getting help, however the advocate was not happy.

The following is a series of Tweets between Transgender activists that helps us gain a valuable perspective on what exactly these social justice advocates want of us and public officials:

Apparently the activists want people to better understand how they have “Triggered”  an unlawful response to law enforcement.

This is where a White “Trans woman”, who is a member of Black Drug Unsers Matters,  doxxes a Black female Police officer:

It is unclear where the defunding of the Police will lead for New York City.  It is the stated objected of the Democrats to defund law enforcement and fund Social Workers who are getting training from far-left radical groups on how to facilitate safety during this mental health calls.
