Big Dem’s Spouse Caught Taking Millions in Federal Subsidy – Nobody Is Above The Law!

Published

on

The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Fox News.

A Democratic Senator was recently hit with a possibly damaging information that was released by her local newspaper. The report was talking about how her husband received over $131 million in federal subsidy since the Senator, Claire McCaskill, had taken office. President Donald Trump and the Missouri GOP have both taken shots at Claire during her career in politics, one now possibly marred by the politically hurtful information released about her husband, Joseph Shepard. No one is above the law and this might be the beginning of the end for anyone caught doing illegal activity. It certainly does not look good for Claire and the Democrats.

“Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill was hit with another politically damaging report Tuesday when her local newspaper revealed businesses tied to her husband have gotten more than $131 million in federal subsidies since she took office.

Husband Joseph Shepard doesn’t personally pocket that money. But he has benefited from profits from the housing projects he’s invested in that received those subsidies.

According to the investigation by The Kansas City Star, Shepard’s personal income from the investments grew considerably since McCaskill took office in 2007. He reportedly made between $1,608 and $16,731 in 2006. But in 2017, Shepard reportedly earned between $365,374 and $1.1 million “from investments in housing projects that received federal subsidies.”

The information came from the Missouri senator’s financial disclosure forms, which only provide a range of income. The report dropped as President Trump was preparing to stump and fundraise for her likely Republican challenger in the midterms, state Attorney General Josh Hawley. Ahead of those events later Tuesday, Trump brought Hawley up on stage during a Kansas City speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention.

There is no evidence that McCaskill was involved in directing any funds into her husband’s affiliated businesses, and she does not sit on any committees that award such funding. McCaskill has also voted both for and against government spending bills that benefit affordable housing programs.

Her campaign told Fox News that McCaskill has no role in how the money is awarded or in her husband’s business interests. Her spokesperson blamed Hawley for trying to “distort and demonize” Shepard’s business.

“Claire’s work in the Senate has absolutely nothing to do with her husband’s business investments,” Meira Bernstein, McCaskill’s campaign spokeswoman, said in an email to Fox News. “It is outrageous that Hawley’s backers are trying to distort and demonize Joseph Shepard’s business success while they celebrate Donald Trump’s business record and wealth. It is the definition of hypocrisy.”

Missouri Republicans, though, seized on the report. The state GOP tweeted: “DC is working for Claire and her family… how about yours?”

Hawley’s campaign did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the Kansas City Star report. But in a “Fox & Friends” interview, Hawley accused McCaskill of listening to “big liberal donors” in consideration of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, though she hasn’t yet taken a position.

The subsidies report is another wave of bad press her team has had to explain as the Missouri Democrat seeks re-election in one of the tightest races of the midterm season.

In June, McCaskill was found to be using her private plane for a supposed three-day RV tour of Missouri.

McCaskill claimed at the time that a report in the Washington Free Beacon, which used aircraft tracking data to track her flights, was “not accurate,” but did confirm she used the plane for part of the tour.

“I added some stops with the use of the plane, but I was on the RV so much that the broken drawer drove me crazy,” McCaskill said, according to Politico. “I even lost an iPad around a corner on the RV.”

When news broke of the private plane incident, President Trump — who has endorsed Hawley — ripped into McCaskill on Twitter.

“Senator Claire McCaskill of the GREAT State of Missouri flew around in a luxurious private jet during her RV tour of the state,” Trump tweeted. “RV’s are not for her. People are really upset, so phony! Josh Hawley should win big, and has my full endorsement.”

Trump Admin Considers Narrowing Legal Definition Of Gender – Corey Booker In Trouble??

Published

...

* By

According to the New York Times, Trump’s administration may redefine the definition of gender, much to the horror of NPCs everywhere.

Seeing as Dem Senator Corey Booker was just accused of sexual assault by a gay man, it’s possible he won’t be able to claim he’s transgender if he comes out of the closet in the future.

The Daily Wire is reporting:

“Judging from the breathless headline in the New York Times, President Trump’s administration is going all out to obliterate transgenderism.

“Trump Administration Eyes Defining Transgender Out of Existence,” said the Sunday headline.

“The Trump administration is considering narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth, the most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law,” said the story’s lead.

The piece goes on to say that a series of decisions by the administration of Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, “loosened the legal concept of gender in federal programs,” which led to “fights over bathrooms, dormitories, single-sex programs and other arenas where gender was once seen as a simple concept.”

So, in an attempt to clarify the law — and to ease the “fights” — the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is seeking to define sex under Title IX, which is the federal civil rights law that outlaws gender discrimination in education programs.

“The department argued in its memo that key government agencies needed to adopt an explicit and uniform definition of gender as determined ‘on a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable.’ The agency’s proposed definition would define sex as either male or female, unchangeable, and determined by the genitals that a person is born with, according to a draft reviewed by The Times. Any dispute about one’s sex would have to be clarified using genetic testing,” writes the Times.

In its memo, HHS said “Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth. The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.”

HHS is expected to present the proposed guidance of to the Justice Department by the end of this year.”

VIDEO: GOP’s New Election Ad Unloads On Democrat Party’s Increasing Threats, Attacks and Mob Violence

Democrats have become increasingly violent since the 2016 election. It doesn’t look like they will let up any time soon.

That bodes well for Republicans, though, as many believe that violence from the left is part of the reason Trump was elected.

Finally the GOP is showcasing Dem violence to the country. Make sure everyone sees this!

The Daily Wire reported:

“The Republican National Committee released a new campaign ad on Friday that highlighted the political violence that has occurred against Republicans in recent weeks; the ad comes just as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi endorsed “collateral damage” against conservatives.

The ad comes after several violent attacks have been launched against Republicans in recent days, including:

Suspicious envelope causes ricin scare at Sen. Collins’ home

Dem Operative For Soros-Funded Group Attacked Female GOP Campaign Manager

Two Republican Candidates Attacked While Campaigning In Minnesota

Wyoming GOP Office Set On Fire Less Than Two Days After Opening — Police Say It Was Intentional

Sen. Cory Gardner’s Wife Allegedly Received ‘Beheading’ Video Prior To Kavanaugh Vote

Pelosi, a California Democrat, said earlier this week that if collateral damage happens against those who disagree with the political agenda of the Democratic Party, then “so be it.”

“We have to have total clarity about what we do when it comes to everything — a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage … whether it’s about immigration, whether it’s about gun safety, whether it’s about climate …” Pelosi said earlier this week. “I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.”

The Gateway Pundit added:

“The latest Republican Party midterm ad highlights the increasing violence of the Democrat Party.

Democrats decided this year to forego a platform and just threaten, harass, beat and vandalize Republican candidates and property instead.

This ad mentions JUST A FEW of the violent attacks on Republican lawmakers this year. Of course, NOT ONE Democrat leader has called on party faithful to stop their violence. Just this weekend Democrats harassed and threatened Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and his wife Elaine Chou while they were eating out.

Democrats need to call off their thugs before someone gets seriously hurt or killed!”
