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

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.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

* By

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

...

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
