Democrat Leader Caught Paying Longtime Girlfriend $2.5 MILLION in Taxpayer Dollars!

Leave a comment

H/T Constitution.com.

Democrat Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) was impeached and removed from his federal judgeship for taking a bribe.                  

The idiots in his district keep electing and reelecting him to the House of Representatives. 

So unless he gets brought up on charges and removed from the House this episode will not matter to the voters in his district. 

Democrat Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) is under fire (again) for unethical use of taxpayer dollars during his time as a Congressman. Hastings was once a Federal Judge who was impeached by for financial misconduct and then convicted and removed from office in 1989. Fortunately for him, the voters in Broward County don’t mind corrupt and unethical politicians, so they elected him to office in 1993 and he’s been their Congressman for almost 25 years now.

Recent discoveries have an old problem for Hastings rearing its ugly head. Hastings is once again being accused of misusing taxpayer dollars, but this time it’s his longtime girlfriend that seems to have been the main beneficiary of Hastings immoral behavior.

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), a D.C.-based group, filed the complaint following the publication of a story in the Washington Free Beacon on the amount the Florida congressman has paid his girlfriend, Patricia Williams, who works out of his Broward County, Fla. office.

Hastings has paid Williams the maximum congressional salary allowed, $168,411, for five straight years and has employed her since 1993. Williams has collected $2.4 million in salary since 2000, the first year congressional salary data is readily available. Williams is also paid more than Hastings’ D.C. chief of staff, a position that is normally the highest paid in a congressional office.

The complaint from FACT outlines why they believe an investigation should be immediately conducted:

“Each Member is responsible for employing his congressional staff, including determining the appropriate compensation and other terms of employment. Since 1993, Representative Hastings has used taxpayer funds to employ his longtime girlfriend, Patricia Williams. Currently, Williams is paid the maximum amount permitted under the law for a congressional staffer as the deputy director of Hastings’ Broward County Florida office…

This relationship along with the facts that Williams has been paid the maximum amount permitted by law for several years and is Hastings’ highest compensated employee, but not the staff member that generally has the most responsibilities, indicates serious ethical concerns. The House Ethics rules prohibit a Member from discriminating unfairly by dispensing special favors. More specifically, the House Code of Official Conduct prohibits a Member from retaining employees on the Member’s payroll who do not perform official duties commensurate with the compensation received. Each Member is ‘accountable for the pay and performance of staff.’”

If Hastings were running a company in the private sector he could pay his employees whatever he felt they deserved. However, this is not the private sector and these are taxpayer dollars he’s using to pay his staff. Paying a county office head $170K is unseemly and unheard of and this is an obvious example of corruption.

Senate Democrats Cave & Beg GOP Not To Use Nuclear Option, Strike Deal For Gorsuch Confirmation

2 Comments

Nwo Report

Judge GorsuchMatthew Bernstein

In 2013, the Democrats in charge made a drastic change in policy. They implemented the start of the “nuclear option.” That meant that a simple majority in Congress could be used to push through some appointments made by the President. Normally, the Senate would have to have 60 “yes” votes to approve anything.

At the time, Democrats were thrilled with this policy change, although a few were worried about the future. If the Democrats weren’t in control, it meant that the Republicans could then push forward certain appointments with a simple majority. It was a risk that the Democrats just had to take.

Those few Democrats who were worried about the future were right. Now that Republicans have control in the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, they can use this nuclear option to push forward appointments made by President Trump.

The nuclear option doesn’t…

Obama’s Welfare Leech Just Busted In SHOCKING Food Stamp Scheme That Cost Taxpayers A Quarter Of a Million Dollars!

H/T Freedom Daily.

Keashia Latriese Davis and people like her are the reason the welfare system is in major need of reform.          

She should not receive a lesser sentence for pleading guilty.

A lot of Americans have quite a lot of concerns about the welfare system today. Concerns about whether it’s being exploited, and if it needs to be reformed. A lot of these questions stem from what seems to be a flood of able-bodied citizens just not bothering to work because they can bring home more money by tracking back and forth to the welfare office.

That particular issue is bad enough since it allows those who could be a part of the workforce to burden the system. There’s a whole other issue that arises when citizens actually fraudulently claim various things in order to get more money. Usually, we can count on it being a few extra dependents or a lie of similar size. However, professional welfare collector Keashia Latriese Davis has just put working the system on the top shelf.

Davis has been charged with defrauding the welfare system in 3 states, bringing in a total of $262,691 in food stamps. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, she was able to swindle the American people out of over one-quarter of a million dollars between April 2015 and May 2016.

Via US Herald:

Davis was able to defraud the food stamp system by simply stealing the identities of individuals who were eligible for the program by logging on the Zillow real estate website and then rerouting those benefits meant for those individuals, by postal service straight to her mailbox in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Rather than forcing the government the additional expense of putting on a trial, as bought her some good will and she may receive credit for pleading guilty, with perhaps a reduced sentence.

However, she still faces the potential of up to 20-years in prison, and a fine up to $250,000.

Davis was found guilty of defrauding the state of Utah, along with Louisiana out of $69,506 (where she was born), and also Texas, out of $56,185.

Judge Marshall acknowledges after Davis pleaded guilty to the charges; “There’s a long ways between zero and 20 years, it’s my decision.”

I don’t know about you guys, but that’s a heck of a lot more than what I make in a year. It’s my sincere hope that Judge Marshall finds an adequate way to punish Davis for the lies and duplicity that she exercised at the expense of hardworking Americans.

Socialism is not the Answer

Accuracy in Media

BuzzFeed, described by Wikipedia as “a liberal American internet media company based in New York City,” is in the “donor spotlight” at the national news museum in Washington, D.C., known as the Newseum. The “honor” demonstrates how the media have changed and how low they have sunk.

A virtual property of Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal, BuzzFeed has been a cog in the anti-Trump media machine.

The “donor spotlight” designation is strangely appropriate, since BuzzFeed disclosed the so-called “Trump Dossier” used by the intelligence community to smear President Trump. “The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors,” the social media site acknowledged while spreading the dubious claims.

By contrast, the John Peter Zenger exhibit located in the Newseum highlights a printer whose publication used the weapon of truth. The Newseum tells us, “German immigrant John Peter Zenger became a free-press hero before there was a First…

Thug Burglar Runs Out Of Woman’s House Traumatized After Walking In On Unexpected Scene Inside

Leave a comment

H/T Freedom Daily.

This hoodrat was lucky he did not get a huge hole blasted through him.

A brazen burglar kicks down a woman’s door in broad daylight. As soon as he got the door open, he figured it was an easy steal. He was probably planning to raid the jewelry and steal a big screen TV to put in his crack-shack welfare house.

But things didn’t go as planned for the hoodrat thug. What really happened sent him running faster than Usain Bolt in the 100-meter dash. This fool was introduced to the business end of a shotgun and he raced away like a horse in the Kentucky Derby. The woman inside was waiting for him with her finger on the trigger, ready to blast him into the atmosphere. She didn’t want to kill someone in front of her two young kids, but she was prepared to do it if she had to.

Once the thug saw the shotgun, he ran and hopped in his car that he parked right on her front lawn! What kind of dope robs a house like this? One that was almost blasted from point blank range with a shotty, that’s who!

A Miami Gardens woman possibly saved her children’s life earlier this month after an intruder broke into their home.

Surveillance video obtained Tuesday by Local 10 News shows a man entering the home March 4 while the mother of two was inside with her 10-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son.

The mother didn’t hesitate to grab her shotgun.

“I will do anything to protect my family,” the woman, who does not want to be identified, said.

Getting stuck on stupid gets the ex boyfriend killed.

A 21-year-old man was shot and killed in Detroit Tuesday morning after he kicked in the door to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment.

Neighbors say the man had been harassing the 31-year-old woman for some time and caused frequent disturbances in the area. In fact, in the short time that she’s lived at the apartment, the man had already damaged her garage door and a window. But when he kicked in her front door shortly after 8 a.m., the woman’s brother grabbed a gun and opened fire.

The ex-boyfriend was struck multiple times in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene. When police arrived, his car was parked on the street and still running.

“It’s very sad that he had to lose his life to a relationship that he didn’t want to break up,” said one neighbor.

Residents say they have called the police on the man numerous times and the woman made it clear to her neighbors that she was not interested in having a relationship with the man.

Police recovered two guns from the scene, although it’s unclear if both belonged to the woman’s brother or whether one was carried by the ex-boyfriend.

Nancy Pelosi Blanks When Asked ‘Who Is The Leader Of The Democratic Party?’ [VIDEO]

H/T Town Hall.

The one thirty second of a brain cell San Fran Nan had was killed by this question.

Anderson Cooper asked Nancy Pelosi a simple question Tuesday evening, which plunged the House Minority Leader into full-on spin mode.

“Who is the leader of the Democratic Party?”

WATCH:

Well, President Obama was the president of the United States until just a matter of weeks ago. I don’t think that he can be dismissed as the leader of the Democratic Party,” the California Democrat answered. “Hillary Clinton did not win the election, but a respected leader.”

We have leaders for all different aspects of it. The Democratic Party is a congressional party, and we have members in Congress. It is a gubernatorial party.”

“But on the state level,” Cooper interrupted. “It is a party which has suffered tremendous losses in the last couple of years under President Obama.”

“It has,” Pelosi conceded, “but we have a plan to address that.”
