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.

Judge Just Opened the FLOODGATES For Illegals To Sway Midterm Vote – Too Late Now!

Published

It’s appalling that this judge is allowed to do this? None of this should be allowed. Amazing how desperate a political party will get. Lie, cheat and steal is the only way for them.

When are these people going to serve time for illegal voting?

From The Gateway Pundit:

A New Hampshire activist judge on Monday put a temporary injunction on a Republican-backed law requiring new voters to show proof of residency when they register.

The judge says requiring proof of residency would lengthen lines and make it harder for students, disabled voters and others to cast their votes.

“Where the law threatens to disenfranchise an individual’s right to vote, the only viable remedy is to enjoin its enforcement,” Judge Kenneth C. Brown wrote in his decision.

The judge also said the registration form is too complicated for people to understand.

Reuters reported:

The temporary injunction against the Republican-backed law comes two weeks before U.S. Congressional elections that will determine whether opposition Democrats or U.S. President Donald Trump’s Republicans retain full control of the federal government’s legislative branch.

The measure, which passed largely along party lines and went into effect last year, required those seeking to register within 30 days of an election to present documents proving that they live in the area where they intend to vote. Without such proof, they must agree to either send it in within 10 days or the state will seek to verify their domicile.
The law does not require proof of address when voting.

The legislation is the subject of a lawsuit filed by League of Women Voters of New Hampshire and other groups, who said it would disenfranchise numerous groups including students, the disabled and homeless voters. The measure will be put on hold while the merits of the case are decided.

New Hampshire Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, a Democrat, welcomed the ruling.

“This law undermines our state’s reputation for holding free and fair elections, and it hurts our democracy,” she said in a statement.

The New Hampshire Associate Attorney General said through a spox that the state is reviewing the court order, according to Reuters.

New Hampshire has a long history of voter fraud and everyone who lives there knows this to be true.

In February of 2017, Project Veritas undercover journalists caught election officials in Nashua, New Hampshire welcoming out of state voters with open arms.
N.H. Election worker: “If you want to vote today, you might want to tell them that you’re staying with a friend and you’re here indefinitely which sounds like it’s true.”

P.V. Journalist: “Ok, got you. It’s not 100% true. But I understand.”

N.H. Election worker: “Right, but you’re here indefinitely and your address is at your friends house and then you would be able to vote.”

The Washington Times reported last year that vote fraud may have tipped New Hampshire against Trump since it was such a tight race:

More than 6,500 people registered to vote in New Hampshire on Nov. 8 using out-of-state driver’s licenses, and since then the vast majority have neither obtained an in-state license nor registered a motor vehicle.

Many Americans Should Prepare For Arrest Before Midterms As Dems Make Way For Invaders

Published

This is nothing but an invasion and must be stopped now!

A man with dual-citizenship in Mexico and the United States was arrested as he took part in the migrant caravan. He helped organize one earlier this year, also.

If other American citizens are helping this caravan or future ones, they could also be arrested by Mexican authorities.

From Conservative Daily Post:

If it weren’t abundantly clear that the migrant caravan was really an organized invasion of the United States, the fact that an ‘immigrant activist’ who was involved in the last illegal incursion was arrested in Mexico for organizing the ‘movement’ should remove all doubt.

Stop The Facebook Purge of Triple Amputee War Hero’s Pages! He Gave 3 Limbs For our Rights And they Stole It All From Him! Help this Hero Take it To Congress –> Fight4FreeSpeech!

Irineo Mujica, who helped organize the last batch of invaders, was arrested Thursday in Ciudad Hidalgo, after the caravan illegally crossed into Mexico from Tecun Umam, Guatemala.

No one can deny that these invaders, mostly military age men, are criminal lawbreakers, but somehow, he’s being labeled a ‘humanitarian.’

Many people ask if it’s ‘humanitarian’ to march people across Central America, encourage them to break every country’s law, and watch as they are stirred into an ignorant frenzy, burning U.S. flags with swastikas on them?

Perhaps for liberals, that is the definition?

AZ Central slanted the fact that a man with dual citizenship was ‘roughly’ pulled into the van of Mexican authorities after plucked him from the migrant group.

Mujica was not involved in organizing the most recent caravan, claimed another instigator, Alex Mensing, a coordinator with Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the group that organized the previous invasion.

“He was not involved in organizing the beginnings of the caravan,” Mensing claimed, saying that Mujica was helping organize ‘humanitarian assistance.’

The instigators claim the group wanted to “welcome a large wave of migrants,” mostly from Honduras, preparing to cross over into Mexico.

Of course, the ‘crossing’ was completely illegal, but that is not mentioned.

“They were having a peaceful march,” Mensing said.

Mexican federal police and immigration officers “broke up the group and went straight for Irineo,” Mensing said.

The article stated, “Mujica was jailed and has been charged with obstructing authorities, according to information distributed to media outlets on WhatsApp, a messaging app.

Mujica was released midday Saturday, Mensing said, and must post a 10,000 peso bond, equivalent to about $520.

He also forfeited his documents, and was ordered not to leave Tapachula until his case is resolved, Mensing said.”

The president has condemned the illegal invasion, and warned he would shut down the Southern border if Mexico cannot stop the incursion.

President Trump has also threatened to withhold billions of dollars in U.S. aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, unless action is taken.

Mexico sent aircraft filled with officers to intercept the illegal invasion force, but with so many liberals helping them, most people agree that this group, being used as pawns by the political left, will reach the border.

It will be up to President Trump to stop them from pouring into the country and American voters to usher in a Congress that will support him.
