Democrat Leader Arrested For 113 Counts Of Bribery, Money Laundering, Defrauding The IRS

Published

on

Former Massachusetts state Senator Brian Joyce collected more than $1 million in bribes and kickbacks through money laundered through his law firm, Joyce Law Group. According to a sweeping 102-page indictment, Joyce was accused of running his office as a “criminal enterprise.”

Joyce lists among his accomplishments 20 years in the Massachusetts legislature, including 19 years in the Massachusetts Senate, where he was Assistant Majority Leader. While serving in the Massachusetts legislature he was Chair of the Senate Committees on Bonding, Bills in the Third Reading, Capital Expenditures and State Assets, Election Laws, Federal Financial Assistance, Housing, Public Service, Tourism, and the Special Committee to Improve Government. He was Vice Chair or a Member of the Ways and Means, Banking, Economic Development and Emerging Technologies, Elder Affairs, Healthcare Financing, Higher Education, and the Judiciary Committees.

Yet the 55-year-old Democrat was reported to have gained more than $1 million through bribes and kickbacks, along with federal charges of racketeering, extortion, mail fraud, corruption, embezzlement, honest services fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy to defraud the IRS. In December of 2017, the 55-year-old was taken into custody by the FBI at his Westport home following a two-year investigation. In January of 2018 Joyce’s accountant was charged with helping him file false income tax returns.

Acting US Attorney William Weinreb stated prosecutors launched an investigation into Joyce after a series of stories by The Boston Globe beginning in January 2015 detailing concerns with Joyce’s mingling of public and personal business. The charges against Joyce reveal a stunning level of corruption.

Joyce chose not to run for reelection in 2016 and then moved out of Milton, his longtime hometown directly following the FBI and IRS conducting a raid on his Canton law office. The raid was precipitated by a series of stories published by the Boston Globe describing various ways in which Joyce used his public position to get private benefits for both himself and his family. Suspicions originally arose due to Joyce repeatedly receiving discounted and sometimes free goods and services, often from businesses in his legislative district.

For instance, when he was angling for a Senate leadership position in late 2014, he gave his Senate colleagues expensive sunglasses that he got at a significant discount from a company in his district, as well as pounds of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. Joyce also received free dry cleaning from a Randolph dry cleaner for more than a decade, services worth thousands of dollars. Neither the sunglasses nor the dry cleaning were mentioned in the indictment.

In another financial scheme, federal authorities allege Joyce spent $471,250 to purchase 65,000 shares in a company, Energi. Joyce actively supported the business activities of Energi on Beacon Hill. Yet Joyce never disclosed those financial ties. He then falsely claimed the money he chose to use to purchase the stock came from the tax-free rollover of an IRA account.

The indictment alleges – “Defendant Joyce created sham retirement accounts for himself and his spouse in order to conceal his stock ownership from the Ethics Commission and to defraud the IRS.’’

Joyce’s relationship with Energi, the Peabody company that is the subject of much of the indictment sells insurance to the energy industry. The company hired Joyce and his law firm to do legal work and to handle regulatory matters before the state Division of Insurance. Between 2010 and 2015, the company paid the Joyce Law Group $377,169 in fees, according to the indictment.

He is also accused of collecting hundreds of pounds of coffee along with an exorbitant $125,089 in “purported legal fees” – all stemming from Carlos Andrade, a major Dunkin’ Donuts franchisee who sits on the Dunkin’ Donuts foundation board of directors. In 2015 on one occasion Joyce collected some 504 pounds of coffee for free – an estimated worth of roughly $4,278.00. When the Boston Globe inquired as to just how he obtained the coffee, Joyce stated he had someone else make up a fake invoice and backdate it, according to the indictment.

Governor Charlie Baker stated he believes the charges against Joyce should be a warning to anyone in public office – “People in public life need to respect the offices they hold, and that means not using them for personal gain and, if the feds believe there is enough there to justify an indictment, then the investigation needs to be thorough and move forward accordingly.”

Former acting Senate President Harriette Chandler also issued a brief statement, stating – “Law enforcement has done its job today. This case now moves to the courts, and I am confident that the justice system will come to a fair and just conclusion in the days to come.”

Joyce is facing substantial jail time for his alleged crimes, but Joyce’s attorney Howard Cooper suggests the charges against Joyce are nothing more than the work of overzealous federal prosecutors.

Cooper states – “I should add that, in the last few years, it has been very apparent across the country that the federal government has brought a number of cases against public officials, which have either gone nowhere, or have been rejected by juries, or have been highly criticized by the courts.”

In the meantime, Joyce is free on $250,000 bond.

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.
