BREAKING: Top Dem Resigns Took Over $450,0000 In Bribes

BUSTED!!!

Published

on

You see the downfall of politicians all the time. Whether it be graft, having an affair, cheating the stock market or getting caught in a whopper of a lie. It’s become commonplace in American politics for these people to get their fifteen minutes of infamy and more than their share of headlines. Weekly, if not daily, we are treated to a never-ending stream of drama via the media because it is newsworthy. And as long as it is reported on factually without bias, that is their job and it is something all of us need to pay attention to. But every once in a while, someone really gets caught big time with their paw in the cookie jar. This week’s star is on the left and from Texas.

Last Thursday, Dwaine Caraway (D-TX), who is a Dallas city council member and the mayor pro tem, pled guilty to taking over $450,000 in kickbacks and bribes. That’s the other way of making money in politics. He is the second-highest-ranking elected official in Dallas. The announcement came from U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox. He stated that Caraway received funds “in the form of a phony consulting agreement, luxury suits, fully funded trips, gambling money, repayment of personal debt, checks and cash” from businessman Robert Leonard. Someone’s been a very bad politician.

This guy evidently supported “key votes to promote and continue” a program placing cameras on school buses; that program was connected to Leonard, who owned the stop-arm camera company that took millions from the Dallas County Schools, as the Dallas Morning News reported. Cox also said that Leonard pled guilty to conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud. Wow… that’s a lot of charges stacking up there. I would bet that Caraway is going away for a very long time. It’s certainly the end of his political career.

Cox stated, “The pleas today represent the meticulous and tireless efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, and the dedicated prosecutors of our office. These cases demonstrate our continued resolve to uncover corruption at the highest levels — the citizens of Dallas deserve honest government.” Yes, they do… but may I point out they should have vetted their leadership a bit better and they should have been more selective when voting.

Caraway has now resigned from his seat on the council. He stated in his resignation letter that: “Over the past several weeks, through a lot of prayer and soul searching, I have decided that I must take responsibility for my actions. I have dedicated much of my life to serving others, but have never claimed to be without sin. I am truly sorry that I must end my career as an elected official because I betrayed the public’s trust that I worked so very hard to earn.” Funny how in the end the faith card is always thrown. Usually by those who have little to no faith by the way. Caraway is 66-years-old.

From The Dallas Morning News:

“Caraway, a longtime council member from Oak Cliff who grew up and still lives near Cedar Crest Golf Course, admitted to prosecutors that the $390,000 he took from Leonard for “real estate consulting” was “excessive.” Court documents show that “Caraway knew that some of the money was to secure his political influence due to his position” as a council member.

“Caraway acknowledged taking that money to “further Leonard’s business interests.” He did that by attempting to persuade the council to vote in support of Leonard’s firm Force Multiplier Solutions, the school bus camera company.

“‘Early on, Caraway told Leonard that he supported the stop-arm program and asked Leonard to make political contributions,” according to court documents. “Leonard made these contributions because Caraway asked and knew that Caraway supported” the program.

“According to Leonard’s factual resume, entered with his plea agreement, Caraway made it clear he could be influenced. At one point, Leonard said, Caraway told him, “I am the City Council.'”

It seems that many times it is almost impossible for those elected to seats of power to keep their hands clean and just do what they were elected to do. You would think it was a no-brainer. Not so much. Hubris and arrogance are fatal sins for politicians and Caraway just found that out the hard way.

Attorney Michael Payma, who is representing Caraway, told The Associated Press that the court documents speak for themselves. He said Caraway must still be sentenced, and he declined to comment further. The investigation was carried out by the FBI and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI). Caraway is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 14 and faces seven years in federal prison under his agreement. Leonard also pleaded guilty to a federal conspiracy charge. Court documents filed Thursday show Leonard cut his deal with federal prosecutors in June. Caraway’s plea agreement was signed Aug. 2. According to the plea agreement, if the court accepts the deal cut with federal prosecutors, Caraway will agree to pay a six-figure fine, as well as almost $69,000 owed to the Internal Revenue Service.

In his plea agreements, also filed Thursday, Leonard admitted to paying former DCS Superintendent Rick Sorrells over $3 million in bribes and kickbacks — “including $200,000 toward Sorrells’ credit card and student loan debt through a bank account opened in the name of a nonexistent entity.” Sorrells and Swartwood have already pleaded guilty to federal charges in the case.

So ends another political career and hopefully, the good citizens of Dallas will find someone less corruptible to replace Caraway.

Sarah Breaks Down In Tears In Front Of Reporters After Bravely Making Personal Announcement

This speaks volumes about who she is.

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is the pillar of professionalism and grace under fire. Since being hired for the role and having to conduct frequent press briefings to the mainstream media wolves, she’s been a perpetual target of the most ruthless attacks. The media she briefs aren’t the only ones who come at her. Late night talk show hosts and celebrities in Hollywood have also enjoyed making fun of her to no end. After a while, it would take it’s toll on anyone regardless of your strength and solid sense of self-worth.

Sarah has still has to do her job daily in the face of all of that torment and does so flawlessly. From how she holds herself, there’s no telling what she really feels inside. However, she recently lost her composure, and rightfully so, when she broke down in tears in front of reporters as she began to make a very personal announcement.

President Trump knew what he was doing when he put this incredible woman in this position. She’s the very best for the job and more importantly, has Trump’s back. There’s no question how much she genuinely respects him and the job he’s doing as our nation’s leader. Proving that, was when she began to cry while revealing what she found on his desk.

Editor’s Note: This particular story was popular at the time it originally made the news and is circulating again a second time for the important and applicable message that’s relevant today.

Western Journalism reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders grew visibly emotional during a press briefing Thursday as she read from a 10-year-old letter recently sent to President Donald Trump from a Tennessee man named Joseph.

The father of an Air Force master sergeant currently on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Joseph wrote the letter while his son was serving in Iraq, to remind him of everything that was at stake.

“Please don’t lose sight of your purpose,” Joseph had written. “You’re the only hope and glimmer of light for the good, innocent men, women and children that you are protecting. This may be hard for you to see or understand.

“Most people know that all of you are there because you volunteered to be there. Your actions and dedication are seen by people throughout the world as without a doubt the most heroic action of any person which can be made.

“You and the soldiers standing next to you from all of the other countries are the pride of not only the nations they represent, but every individual that yearns to be free,” the letter concluded. “Stand tall, my son, and be steadfast. For it is you who are the defender of freedom.”

As she read it, the emotion from the podium was palpable. Like Trump, Sanders has a deep respect for the men and women who serve our country. It was personal to her to make this announcement and obviously important.

“We owe it to the servicemen and women like the master sergeant who have fought in our name in Afghanistan for 17 years and to the families who have watched them go to secure an honorable and lasting outcome to this conflict,” Sanders saids during the press briefing, after reading the letter aloud.

Western Journalism added:

Though many on both the right and left have complained over the president’s just-announced decision to escalate the United States’ war in Afghanistan, it’s clear by Joseph’s poignant words why we can’t give up now when we’ve already come this far.

Closing up the briefing, Sanders noted that Joseph told Trump he had been a police officer for 30 years and that he sent the letter to the president in the hopes he’d read it.

“I’m glad to say that he did earlier today,” she said.

Each citizen is so important and special to the president, that he read this letter and kept it within reach, despite receiving an overwhelming amount of mail daily, most likely. He promised to work for the “average” American and our military and is doing just that. Part of Joseph’s words to his son also apply to Sanders and Trump as well: “Please don’t lose sight of your purpose.” America needs them both to remain steadfast to their purpose through the challenges heaped on them by detractors. There’s no doubt they too will fight until the end.

Sarah Brings Her Kids To WH Briefing And Completely Destroys Everyone Who Attacked Her [WATCH]

Well played, Sarah! She nailed it!

Published

on

There’s something about White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that leftists really can’t stand. It’s a strange hate they have for her considering that she’s everything liberals say women should be — a successful, independent woman who has shattered gender roles in the workplace, has and expresses thoughts of her own. She has it all with managing an incredible career and a family as well.

Although she may represent all that the left says empowers to women, the opinions she expresses don’t align with the left, and she works for their nemesis to top it off. All of her attributes go out the window based on these two judgemental facts which should have no bearing on the respect she rightfully deserves and has earned. In fact, it’s the combination of it all that has resulted in a barrage of insult on the most personal level from numerous celebrities and late night personalities.  The latest, and perhaps the most insulting was when Sanders sat front row to the verbal abuse she endured publicly at a formal gala. A no-name “comedian” attempted to be funny, but was incredibly cruel instead and still doesn’t apologize for the sickening attack.

Through it all, even when face-to-face with her detractors, Sanders has maintained total class and composure. She’s a relatable person who doesn’t pretend to be someone or something she’s not, including going as far as to bring her kids to work for a very special reason. With her little ones present, everyone who has hated on her was completely destroyed in seconds.

The Daily Caller reports:

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders celebrated National Take Your Child to Work Day Thursday by bringing her two kids with her to the White House briefing room.

The photos from the event will make parents everywhere like Sanders even more.

Well, the pictures should, for those who can relate to working and raising kids simultaneously, and anyone who just has a genuine love for motherhood and family. Leftists don’t often fall into this category.

Regardless of if they are willing to admit it, Sanders is the pillar of an excellent and modern day woman. Her political affiliation or opinions shouldn’t change that. However, liberals are so desperate to hate her and attack her, that they will completely ignore how she outclassed them all on this adorable day. Instead, they’re busy conjuring up the next slander mission about some aspect of her looks they don’t like. It’s pathetic.

An often unreported and underestimated fact about this presidency is that the White House has never been more family friendly. Sanders and her son are a big part of this as was previously reported.

Editor’s Note: This particular story was popular at the time it originally made the news and is circulating again a second time for the important and applicable message that’s relevant today.

With a new open-door policy established in the Oval Office for employees and White House tours back in action, “The People’s House” has never been so personable, and we also haven’t ever had a president who is as approachable as Trump. A feeling of family now fills the West Wing not just because the president’s daughter and son-in-law have taken roles in the White House, but because he and the First Lady espouse those values, making kids, grandkids, and motherhood a priority. We saw this recently when a group of children crossed paths with the president and Sanders when something incredible happened.

Sanders’ young son was in that group being led by a couple adults around the grounds. As soon as he saw the president and his mom, he broke free from the crowd and booked it as fast as he could toward them. However, he was far less concerned with the Commander-in-Chief as it was his mother, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who he was so excited to see passing up the president to get to her. Considering what she’s recently been through, the feeling was probably mutual when she saw her little boy.

Liberals seem to have their own set of rules when it comes ti the treatment of women and children, so long as it serves their own politics. The same people on the other side of the aisle, or women and children even just associated with conservative politicians aren’t usually shown the same level of care and concern from the left.

Let’s give it to Sanders for being a mom who actually sets and amazing example to her son, unlike others who raise hateful adults who attack other adults over their physical appearance.
