REP. ILHAN OMAR SLID LOVER’S CONSULTING GROUP $150K MORE THAN PREVIOUSLY KNOWN

Rep. Ilhan Omar Slid Lover's Consulting Group $150K More Than Previously Known

Feds allegedly don’t have manpower to investigate

Zero Hedge – NOVEMBER 18, 2019

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) funneled another $150,000 in previously undisclosed funds to her lover Tim Mynett’s political consulting group, within months of a New York Post report that the two were romantically involved.

“The 37-year-old Minnesota congresswoman’s campaign has funneled $146,712.63 to Mynett’s E Street Group since The Post in August reported allegations she was having an affair with her paid consultant, records show.”

“The latest payments to Mynett’s group were for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and video production.” – New York Post

Mynett had already received $223,000 through Omar’s campaign prior to this report, bringing his latest ‘take’ to a total of $370,000.

According to the Post, however, the federal agency charged with investigating the campaign finance complaint against Omar doesn’t have the manpower to investigate.

“This is something every American should be very concerned about,” said government affairs lobbyist Craig Holman with the watchdog group Public Citizen.

“We have no election cop on the beat. The Federal Election Commission essentially closed its doors so everyone knows they can pretty much do whatever they want to do and that’s the status of our political system today.”

The allegations of an affair, levied by Mynett’s estranged wife Beth, have been denied by both Omar and Tim Mynett. Beth claims Tim left her in April over the affair with the Somali-born US Congresswoman.

And after allegedly committing perjury, immigration fraud, marriage fraud, state and federal tax fraud, and federal student loan fraud – and potentially marrying her own brother Omar filed for divorce in October from her husband Ahmed Hirsi (not the brother) amid the allegations, claiming their relationship was ‘irretrievable.” Hirsi had reportedly been pushing for a divorce for months.

“Conservative watchdog the National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint against Omar with the Federal Election Commission in the wake of the bombshell report — seeking a probe into whether the Democrat used campaign funds to rendezvous with her alleged lover.”

“But because the FEC has only three of six commissioner slots filled and needs at least four members to vote on complaints — their hands are tied.”

“’It doesn’t surprise me at all,’” Holman said of the continued payments from Omar to her alleged love interest. ‘We literally have no election cop on the beat and we’re entering the 2020 election that promises to be the most expensive election in history.’”

“The FEC complaint focused on the fact that more than $12,673.43 of the payments to Mynett were simply labeled ‘travel expenses’ — a potential breach of campaign finance law which states that travel expenses be itemized.” – New York Post

For those keeping track, two members of ‘the squad’ are now linked to alleged inappropriate disbursements of campaign funds.

 

HMMM: Tlaib Receives Donation From Person Dead For A Decade

Tlaib Receives Donation Dead Decade

Rep. Tlaib received a donation from a man who has been deceased for a decade.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) may be using an Ouija board to solicit campaign donations, as it has been revealed she received a sizable sum from a person who has been deceased for the past 10 years.

According to Free Beacon, Tlaib’s campaign Federal Election Commission filings reveal the freshman congresswoman received a generous donation from a businessman who has been deceased for a decade.

The Free Beacon reported:

Democratic freshman representative Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) received a generous donation during the second quarter in the name of a man who died more than 10 years ago, a review of campaign and online records shows.

Tlaib’s campaign committee, Rashida Tlaib for Congress, hauled in donations of at least $2,000 from dozens of individuals between April 1 and June 30. One of those contributions was from George S. Farah Sr., a Michigan businessman, real estate developer, and community leader who made his way from Palestine to the United States in the mid-1950s. Farah passed away on Feb. 1, 2009, from heart failure, according to a Michigan Live article published at the time of his death.

On June 22, Tlaib’s campaign received a $2,500 donation in his name, Federal Election Commission filings show. A search of public records, which also state that he is deceased, provides an address identical to the one written on the contribution to Tlaib’s campaign committee. Grand Blanc Township property records also show that the residence located at that address is registered in Farah’s name along with that of his widow.

While Tlaib may have received the apparently fraudulent donation unknowingly, Free Beacon reports that she was the only candidate to receive a donation from the deceased man. Federal laws exist that make it illegal to donate on behalf of another person – living or dead – meaning there is very little chance this donation is above board.

According to The Free Beacon, the Tlaib campaign maintains that the donation came from the living heir to the original donor:

“Gisele Farah is the sole beneficiary of a trust in her late husband’s name, George S. Farah Sr., who as you noted passed away in 2009. Gisele Farah, as the sole beneficiary in control of the trust, contributed to our campaign with funds from her trust. We will amend our campaign records and filings to clarify that the campaign contribution was from Gisele Farah and should be designated under her name.”

Tlaib, a vocal member of “The Squad” derided by President Donald Trump on Twitter, appears to be having a confusing first term in Congress. Last month, she declared that the fight for a $15 minimum wage is now obsolete, and due to the cost of household items including milk, activists should now demand a $20 minimum wage.

SOROS DUMPS $5.1M INTO 2020 SUPER PAC: ‘LARGEST CHECK ANY MEGADONOR HAS CUT SO FAR’

Soros spent $7 million in 2015-2016 to buy a host of District Attorney seats throughout the country to throw open our nations’ prisons and legalize drug pushing

By Chris Menahan – August 2, 2019

Globalist billionaire George Soros is gearing up to buy another election.

From Politico:

Democratic megadonor George Soros is creating a super PAC, called Democracy PAC, to serve as a hub for his 2020 election spending.

Soros has so far put $5.1 million into the PAC, according to paperwork filed with the Federal Election Commission on Wednesday. His $5.1 million contribution was the single biggest check any megadonor has cut so far during the 2020 election cycle.

Soros’ move to open the new PAC hints that the billionaire financier may be poised to spend heavily in the 2020 elections. The $5.1 million that Soros put in the PAC more than doubles the $2.1 million he had donated to political causes at this point in the 2016 elections. He would eventually give more than $20 million to Democratic politics during the 2016 race, making him one of the party’s biggest individual donors.

Soros spent $7 million in 2015-2016 to buy a host of District Attorney seats throughout the country to throw open our nations’ prisons and legalize drug pushing.

 

Chuck Schumer, Caught With Jeffrey Epstein Donations, Gives The Money Away

By

Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was caught accepting money from accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, and now he’s making a show of giving the money away, just as he did with his Harvey Weinstein donations.

The New York Post reports: Federal Election Commission records show that Schumer received seven $1,000 donations from Epstein between 1992 and 1997, first as a US congressman from New York and then when he was vying to be the state’s senator in 1998, an election he won…

That means Schumer and Schumer-linked entities received a combined $22,000.

Schumer spokesman Angelo Roefaro responded, “While these campaign accounts closed about 20 years ago, and even then the campaign never controlled the two political action committees (PACs), Senator Schumer is donating an equal sum to anti-sex trafficking and anti-violence against women groups.”

The top Senate Democrat previously donated $14,200 — the amount donated to his campaigns by accused sexual predator Harvey Weinstein — to several charities supporting women.

New York Post passage ends

A “little black book” of names and addresses kept by Jeffrey Epstein’s butler includes many rich and powerful people including George Soros’ investment banker nephew Peter Soros, who shows up alongside Bill Richardson, Alec Baldwin and others.

The Soros-Epstein connection is less clearly defined at this time, based on available knowledge, than the clear relationship between Epstein and former Democrat president Bill Clinton,

Court documents show that Jeffrey Epstein had 21 different phone numbers for Bill Clinton.

“Epstein’s personal phone directory from his computer contains e-mail addresses for Clinton along with 21 phone numbers for him, including those for his assistant (Doug Band), his schedulers, and what appear to be Clinton’s personal numbers. This information certainly leads one to believe that Clinton might well be a source of relevant information and efforts to obtain discovery from him were reasonably calculated to lead to admissible evidence,” according to the court documents from a civil case filed by victims against Epstein.

The U.S. District Court Judge presiding over the Jeffrey Epstein child trafficking case was appointed to the federal bench by former president Bill Clinton, a frequent travel companion of Epstein. Epstein actually claimed to be a co-founder of the Clinton Global Initiative.

Richard Berman was appointed by Bill Clinton in 1998. He presided over Dinesh D’Souza’s case where D’Souza was convicted of re-imbursing friends to evade campaign contribution limits in a New York election.

Meanwhile, disgraced former FBI director James Comey’s daughter Maurene is one of the prosecutors in the case.

Why did Epstein get a very light sentence — 13 months in a comfortable county jail — when he was first convicted as a sex criminal?

Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, a former Miami prosecutor, reportedly cut Jeffrey Epstein a deal in Epstein’s previous case because he was told that Epstein “belonged to intelligence.” Epstein now stands criminally accused of child sex trafficking.

The Daily Beast reports: “Is the Epstein case going to cause a problem [for confirmation hearings]?” Acosta had been asked. Acosta had explained, breezily, apparently, that back in the day he’d had just one meeting on the Epstein case. He’d cut the non-prosecution deal with one of Epstein’s attorneys because he had “been told” to back off, that Epstein was above his pay grade. “I was told Epstein ‘belonged to intelligence’ and to leave it alone,” he told his interviewers in the Trump transition, who evidently thought that was a sufficient answer and went ahead and hired Acosta. (The Labor Department had no comment when asked about this.)”

Interesting.

Bill Clinton declined to be accompanied by the Secret Service on at least 5 of his flights with accused child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. Clinton took at least 26 trips with Epstein according to FAA flight logs, and is now fighting to assert that he was not involved with Epstein’s pedophilia.

Malia Zimmerman reported in 2016: “Official flight logs filed with the Federal Aviation Administration show Clinton traveled on some of the trips with as many as 10 U.S. Secret Service agents. However, on a five-leg Asia trip between May 22 and May 25, 2002, not a single Secret Service agent is listed. The U.S. Secret Service has declined to answer multiple Freedom of Information Act requests filed by FoxNews.com seeking information on these trips. Clinton would have been required to file a form to dismiss the agent detail, a former Secret Service agent told FoxNews.com. In response to a separate FOIA request from FoxNews.com, the U.S. Secret Service said it has no records showing agents were ever on the island with Clinton.”

Fox News passage ends

Former Democrat president Bill Clinton released a statement Monday through a spokesperson acknowledging numerous interactions with his frequent travel companion Jeffrey Epstein.

I reported in 2015:

Convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein pleaded the Fifth Amendment in court to avoid having to admit to his personal friendship with former President Bill Clinton.

Court documents (p. 34) reviewed by The Daily Caller reveal that Epstein took the Fifth to avoid self-incrimination in a deposition when directly asked, “Do you know former President Clinton personally?” Epstein made the plea in a 2010-2011 civil case between Epstein and Florida lawyer Brad Edwards, who sued Epstein on behalf of some of Epstein’s alleged victims.

THE SWAMP In Age of Trump, Democrats Claim It’s Anti-Semitic to Expose Money in Politics

By Shane Trejo

A favorite bogeyman of the Democratic Party throughout the years has been “money in politics” hurting our electoral integrity.

The whining reached a fever pitch after the Supreme Court reached a decision in Citizens United v. FEC (2010), which supposedly stacked the deck for Republican fat cats to purchase US politics wholesale.

In the age of President Donald Trump, everything has flipped on its head. Democrats have lost their marbles and with it, all principles they used to hold dear have gone out the window.

These maniacal liberals are now more than happy to take dirty billionaire money if they think it might help stop Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda.

House Freedom Caucus founder Jim Jordan (R-OH) was called “inane AND anti-Semitic” by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-CT) for issuing the following tweet pointing out the fact that Nadler was aggressively lobbied to push for impeachment by ‘Never Trump’ billionaire Tom Steyer:

Nadler said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday that he plans to use his authority to harass Donald Trump Jr. as well as Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg.

“We are going to initiate investigations into abuses of power, into corruption … and into obstruction of justice,” Nadler said. “It’s our job to protect the rule of law.

“It’s very clear that the president obstructed justice,” Nadler added.

The newest liberal scheme is to call any criticism of billionaire leftist paymasters an anti-Semitic trope regardless of whether the accusations are true or not.

Republicans have been maligned in this despicable manner for pointing out the activism of not only Steyer but also billionaire oligarchs Michael Bloomberg and George Soros.

Data compiled by OpenSecrets.org shows that Steyer, Bloomberg and Soros were each within the top ten overall donors during the 2018 election cycle, giving nearly $200 million dollars to solely Democratic candidates.

While Democrats like to invent fake anti-Semitism to get people’s eyes off of who is funding them, they permit literal anti-Semitism to foment within their own ranks in the name of multiculturalism and diversity.

CAP

The Democrats are the party of radical Muslim anti-Semites, and the likes of Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) will make that abundantly clear in the years to come.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Chief of Staff Ran Slush Fund – Funneled Over $1 Million in Campaign Donations to His Own Companies

 

Screen Shot 2019-03-04 at 5.59.10 PM.png

According to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Committee Monday (FEC), two PACs founded by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide, Saikat Chakrabarti funneled over $ 1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, reported the Washington Examiner.

So much for Ocasio-Cortez’s promise to reduce “dark money” in politics!

According to a complaint filed by government watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center, it appears Chakrabarti set up his two companies for the sole purpose of hiding how the donations were used.

The Washington Examiner reported:

The arrangement skirted reporting requirements and may have violated the $5,000 limit on contributions from federal PACs to candidates, according to the complaint filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.

Campaign finance attorneys described the arrangement as “really weird” and an indication “there’s something amiss.” They said there was no way of telling where the political donations went — meaning they could have been pocketed or used by the company to pay for off-the-books campaign operations.

PACs are required to disclose how and when funds are spent, including for expenditures like advertisements, fundraising emails, donations to candidates, and payments for events and to vendors.

The private companies to which Chakrabarti transferred the money from the PACs are not subject to these requirements.

The complaint names Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti and asks the FEC to investigate and audit the two PACs alleging they were engaged in “an elaborate scheme to avoid proper disclosure of campaign expenditures,” reported the Examiner.

“It appears Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her associates ran an off-the-books operation to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, thus violating the foundation of all campaign finance laws: transparency,” Director of National Legal Policy Center Tom Anderson said.

Chakrabarti founded the two PACs in question in 2016 and 2017.

Brand New Congress was founded in 2016 and Justice Democrats was founded in 2017 with the end goal of getting ultra progressive candidates elected to Congress — ultimately these two PACs helped radical Communist Ocasio-Cortez win a Congressional seat last November.

The Washington Examiner explains how Chakrabarti set up the PACs and his shell companies to move the money around in secret:

In 2016 and 2017, Chakrabarti’s PACs raised around $3.3 million for the project, primarily from small donors. During this time, the committees transferred over $1 million to two shell companies controlled by Chakrabarti with names similar to one of the PACs, Brand New Campaign LLC and Brand New Congress LLC, according to federal election filings.

A few weeks after starting the Brand New Congress PAC, Chakrabarti formed one of the companies, Brand New Campaign LLC, in Delaware, using a registered agent service and mailbox-only address.

Over the next seven months, as small-dollar political donations poured into the PAC from progressives across the country, the committee transferred over $200,000, 82 percent of the contributions, to the company Brand New Campaign LLC. The payments were for “strategic consulting,” according to federal election filings. They were sent to an apartment address listed for Chakrabarti in the Greenwich Village area of Manhattan.

In 2017, Brand New Congress PAC transferred another $240,000 to Brand New Congress LLC, also for “strategic consulting.” Another PAC co-founded by Chakrabarti that year called “Justice Democrats” transferred an additional $605,000 to Brand New Congress LLC in 2017.

Bradley A. Smith, a former chairman of the FEC, said he has never seen such an arrangement. “It’s a really weird situation,” he said. “I see almost no way that you can do that without it being at least a reporting violation, quite likely a violation of the contribution limits. You might say from a campaign finance angle that the LLC was essentially operating as an unregistered committee.”

Recall, AOC’s Chief of Staff Saikat Chakrabarti is a radical Communist and a huge fan of Indian political leader Subhas Chandra Bose who was an ally of Adolf Hitler and Imperial Japan.

Ocasio-Cortez was lambasted by conservative media after her boyfriend’s name appeared on the House directory list — many speculated she put her boyfriend on payroll like a good Socialist.

“Nice to see her adapting to the swamp so quickly,” writer Luke Thompson said after discovering AOC’s boyfriend was designated as House staff a few weeks ago.

BERNIE SANDERS, CLIMATE HAWK, SPENDS NEARLY $300K ON PRIVATE JET TRAVEL IN MONTH

Bernie Sanders, Climate Hawk, Spends Nearly $300K On Private Jet Travel In Month

Sanders’s private jet use comes despite the senator’s hard-line stance on climate change, which he has consistently called “the single greatest threat facing our planet.”

By Peter Hasson

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s re-election campaign spent just under $300,000 on private jet use in October, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show.

The Sanders campaign, which is funded primarily by small-dollar donors, paid Apollo Jets $297,685.50 on Oct. 10, FEC records reveal. The payment was marked for “transportation.”

“This expense was for transportation for the senator’s 9-day, 9-state tour to support Democratic candidates up and down the ballot ahead of Election Day,” campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones told local website VtDigger.com, which first reported on the jet expenses.

“This cost covered the entirety of the tour from Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Carolina, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona, California, and back to Vermont,” Jones said.

Sanders’s private jet use comes despite the senator’s hard-line stance on climate change, which he has consistently called “the single greatest threat facing our planet.”

Because flying generates significantly more greenhouse gases than driving, climate hawks generally advocate against taking unnecessary flights.

“The campaign purchased carbon offsets from NativeEnergy to support renewable energy projects and invest in carbon reduction projects to balance out the emissions produced on the trip,” Jones told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Carbon offsets in theory allow polluters to cancel out their emissions by funding projects aimed at reducing emissions. (RELATED: Bernie Sanders Doesn’t ‘Recall’ Flip-Flopping Government Shutdown)

The same day his campaign cut a check to the private jet company, Sanders called climate change a “planetary crisis.”

“Climate change is a planetary crisis. Our task is clear. We must take on the fossil fuel industry that’s largely responsible for global emissions and accelerate our transition toward energy efficiency and sustainable energy sources,” Sanders wrote in an Oct. 10 tweet.

Screen Shot 2018-12-05 at 10.54.16 AM

Jones said the payment of $4,980 to NativeEnergy will be reflected in the campaign’s Dec. 6 filing, which covers activities after Oct. 17.

Sanders, an independent who caucuses with Democrats in Congress, is widely expected to run for president as a Democrat in 2020.
