Ridiculous Ruling Made For Chicago Dem Caught Giving Away $200K Cash To Voters

Handing out cash for votes??

Published

on

It looks like Maxine Waters has some new competition for the leading role of the ‘poverty pimp’ as Chicago’s Democratic Mayoral candidate, Willie Wilson, was caught handing out nearly $200,000 to people on the streets. The Board of Elections got involved and the ruling they sparked some controversy as people surely weren’t very happy with the ruling. To some, it seemed like he was paying people to vote for him. To others, it was just a circus act waiting for some sort of ethics violation to happen. Just helping the people, right?

However, it didn’t happen that way and now many might be wondering why. It turns out that the Board of Elections did not find the man in question guilty of violating any finance laws because the money allegedly came from his non-profit organization. Many others would disagree and felt like it was him trying to buy votes, especially from churchgoers and anyone who received part of the nearly $200k that he handed out, allegedly. Chicago needs help and this is probably not the best way to get the crime-ridden city back under control.

CHICAGO — Chicago mayoral candidate Willie Wilson says he wasn’t trying to buy anyone’s vote when he handed out close to $200,000 to churchgoers.

The millionaire businessman said Sunday’s appearance at the New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church was nothing more than “one of the biggest property tax relief assistance” events of the year and the kind of thing he’s done before.

The Illinois State Board of Elections said Wilson didn’t break any campaign finance laws because the money came from his non-profit foundation.

Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, himself seeking reelection, joined Wilson at New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church at the event.

An aide to Wilson said the businessman gave away $300,000 to 2,000 people through the Dr. Willie Wilson Foundation, a 501(c)(3). Such organizations are tax-exempt, must not be organized for the benefit of private interests and are restricted in how much political activities they can conduct. Wilson says he organized the giveaway to assist homeowners who are struggling to pay their property tax bills.

“My wife and I have been blessed by God to be able to get a few of the material things out of life and so it’s up to us to now continually to share back with all of you all and others,” Wilson told church members during the event.

Wilson’s campaign spokesman insists today’s appearance was not campaign related. But Chicago politicos on both sides of the aisle raised concerns about the event.

“What the hell? Is Bruce Rauner using Willie Wilson and Corey Brooks to buy votes???” tweeted State Rep. Emanuel Chris Welch, a Democrat.

New Covenant, where the event took place, is actually led by pastor Rev. Stephen J. Thurston and not Corey Brooks as Welch’s tweet indicates.

“Check this out if you wonder why Illinois politicians are often a national joke,” Republican state Rep. David McSweeney said on Twitter. “How can Willie Wilson, a candidate for Mayor of Chicago, literally hand out CASH at a public event? This is so wrong!”

Wilson is known across Chicagoland for his generous charitable work. A man of deep faith, he supports various churches.

Reached by phone, F. Scott Winslow, Wilson for Mayor campaign spokesman, told WGN News Sunday’s event was “absolutely not” a campaign event. Winslow says since Wilson launched his second bid for Chicago mayor, he’s probably given away $500,000.

“While he happens to be a candidate, he’s been a philanthropist for 30 years,” Winslow said.

Winslow insists the campaign is not violating any campaign finance laws since it was not involved with today’s handout. But the event certainly had a political feel.

During the event, Rauner also addressed the church in brief remarks. The governor shared with worshippers that he received an award from the National Black Chamber of Commerce at in event in Washington, D.C. this past Friday, and talked about his work reforming Illinois’ criminal justice system and boosting education funding for schools.”

It was pointed out that Willie Wilson has supposedly been a philanthropist for the last 30-years, but when it comes time for elections and someone is handing out money, that can only truly be perceived as a man attempting to buy voters hearts. While it may not create any technical violations, it might still be frowned upon by the general public and those running against Wilson when the next mayoral election arrives for Chicago.

Many Democratic voters have participated in the #WalkAway movement and multiple websites have created lists of urban cities ruined by Democratic leadership. Some independent news outlets have suggested that poor urban Americans stop voting for Democrats due to the amount of time that Democratic mayors have ruled and improvements in poverty have not been made.

Perhaps the Walk Away movement is the direction Chicago should go because their current mayor seems to have lost a grip on his city.

Man Found Contracts Showing Obama Was Paying Trump Spy – Obama Tried To Shut Him Up By Stripping Security Clearance

Obama-appointed officials cleaned house

Published

on

A man named Adam Lovinger lost his security clearances after complaining about the questionable government contract that was awarded to Stefan Halper, who is being touted as an FBI informant whose job was to keep an eye on President Trump’s campaign. Who stripped the clearances, you might ask? It’s being reported that it was Obama-appointed officials who cleaned house and ripped Lovinger’s clearances away, presenting to us quite a concern that involves contracts and clashing forces within the government who either supported Obama then or support Trump now. Either way, it’s a mess.

Lovinger was reportedly complaining about Halper’s contracts back in 2016. He then lost his clearances on May 1, 2017. Lovinger’s lawyer, Sean M. Bigley, then complained to the Pentagon’s senior ethics official, mad that Lovinger’s “higher ups” were basically punishing him with the whole security clearance thing – punishing him for complaining about the deals that were given to Mr. Halper and apparently a “best friend” of Chelsea Clinton, as per the Washington Times.

The Washington Times called this out, as well as numerous other sites who wanted the public to be notified about what was going on behind closed doors. Since John Brennan just lost his security clearances, it was probably just another relative topic to bring up someone else who lost their clearances as well. However the big problem is why they lost their clearances and how it ties back to Obama’s administration, and perhaps even Hillary Clinton on a long stretch. Rather than point fingers at two particular names, it might just be the entire Democratic Party. However it goes, it’s up to the public to absorb the information and make their own decisions.

Anytime these news stories are breaking the headlines, it’s always important to take in all the information and figure out what’s going on. Then share the story with people who would enjoy it. If you’re up for a good bit of government drama, then this is right up your political alley!

Here’s a brief summary that details most of what happened:

“As it turns out, one of the two contractors Mr. Lovinger explicitly warned his ONA superiors about misusing in 2016 was none other than Mr. Halper,” Mr. Bigley wrote in his ethics complaint, which called the contracts “cronyism and corruption.”

Mr. Lovinger filed a whistleblower reprisal complaint in May with the Defense Department inspector general against James Baker, director of the Office of Net Assessment. The complaint also singles out Washington Headquarters Services, a Pentagon support agency that awarded the Halper contracts totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars.

In an internal October 2016 email to higher-ups, Mr. Lovinger wrote of “the moral hazard associated with the Washington Headquarters Services contracting with Stefan Halper,” the complaint said. It said Mr. Baker hired Mr. Halper to “conduct foreign relations,” a job that should be confined to government officials.

“It was a topic of conversation within the office,” Mr. Bigley told The Times. “What is Halper doing, and why is he being paid astronomically more than others similarly situated?”

The Office of Net Assessment conducts analyses of future threats and ways to defeat them.

“Nobody in the office seemed to know what Halper was doing for his money,” Mr. Bigley said. “Adam said Jim Baker, the director, kept Halper’s contracts very close to the vest. And nobody seemed to have any idea what he was doing at the time. He subcontracted out a good chunk of it to other academics. He would compile them all and then collect the balance as his fee as a middleman. That was very unusual.”

Mr. Bigley told The Times that the inspector general’s criminal investigative division has interviewed Mr. Lovinger about Office of Net Assessment contracting.

In all, Mr. Lovinger has four cases pending: whistleblower reprisal, criminal division, an ethics complaint and an appeal on his security clearance revocation.

A spokesman told The Times that the Pentagon would not comment on the case’s merits.

The spokesman said the Department of Defense Consolidated Adjudicaitons Facility reviewed Mr. Lovinger’s clearance.

It then “issued a statement of reasons stating why, under [federal guidelines] it would not be clearly consistent with the national interest to continue Mr. Lovinger’s security clearance, and he was provided with the opportunity to respond to the security concerns,” the spokesman said. “After considering all available information, the CAF issued an unfavorable clearance determination and Mr. Lovinger’s clearance was revoked.”

Mr. Bigley said the conflict is that the consolidated authority resides within the Washington Headquarters Services, which is the target of Mr. Lovinger’s complaint.

“The CAF’s entire ‘adjudication’ of this case was orchestrated by corrupt officials at WHS, which was demonstrated numerous times throughout the process,” he said.

To conservatives, Mr. Lovinger is a victim of the “deep state” — Obama loyalists out to harm the Trump administration.

Press reports identified Mr. Halper as a paid FBI confidential human source, whose mission was to make contacts with Trump campaign workers. The FBI was investigating any Trump ties to Moscow at a time when its intelligence officers were hacking Democratic Party computers.”

After lodging his complaints about the Office of Net Assessment’s outside research in general and Mr. Halper specifically, Mr. Lovinger sought an assignment to the Trump White House national security staff in January 2017. He was soon confronted with allegations from Mr. Baker that he failed to follow security rules. Mr. Lovinger denies any wrongdoing.

Mr. Baker was appointed chief of the Office of Net Assessment in 2015 by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, Mr. Obama’s appointee.

The Washington Headquarters Services, which revoked Mr. Lovinger’s clearance, is headed by Barbara Westgate, who was appointed in 2016.

Perhaps the most intriguing narrative in the Lovinger story is the appearance of Mr. Halper, a national security consultant in the U.S. and Britain who is tied to that country’s MI6 spy agency through his business partner.”

First Trans Dem Nominee Has Jaw-Dropping Message For ‘Radicalized Christians’

I thought the LGBT crowd was supposed to be tolerant?

Published

on

One of the fresh new faces of the Democratic Party is also the first transgender nominee for governor in Vermont. Her name is Christine Hallquist and she’s got a message for Christians! Based on observations of Hallquist’s previous Tweets, it appears as though she is evidently disgusted by the Christian religion and has utilized Twitter as a means by which to attack those who follow the faith. Hallquist has several Tweets that call out “radicalized Christians” and she even uses the Islamic Sharia Law in comparison.

The website, Daily Caller, had located several of the Tweets in question, each resorting to inflammatory or intolerant attacks on the Christian beliefs.

The first tweet stated “And we worry about sharia law!! Radicalized Christians are a part of the American landscape, and we tolerate it.” This was in reference to a young girl being too good at soccer and having short hair, so the league thought she was a boy. They made a huge mistake, but Hallquist used this as an example to compare Sharia Law and radicalized Christianity. The young girl may have been targeted because maybe there was a jealous parent on another team, but it’s not directly certain that the decisions regarding the soccer league had anything to do with religion. Many may perceive Sharia Law to be much worse than removing someone or a team from a soccer league.

Hallquist’s next Tweet stated “Some of these Christian evangelist’s are just downright crazy” and she posted a link to the Babylon Bee, which is a well-known satire site. This site posts articles that are clearly fake and made as a joke for entertainment purposes only. Hallquist might have thought the website was real and used it as her method of attacking Christians again.

Another Tweet involved a message from PinkNews who talked about anti-LGBT trolls “sending horrific abuse to a 9-year-old girl” and right away Hallquist targeted Christians once again. She stated “Of course! Probably most of them call themselves Christians.”

Another attack on Christians involved a Tweet by LGBTQ Nation. They posted about a mother who killed her son because he was gay. Christine Hallquist attacked Christians and said “I’ll bet she called herself a “Christian.”

Another Tweet found Hallquist targeting Christians once again. This one referred to another Tweet by LGBTQ Nation who reported about a transgender woman be denied food at a soup kitchen. Hallquist then stated, “I am guessing that this so-called Christian hypocrites would’ve not allowed Mary, the mother of Jesus, because she wore a Hijab” and many of the replies to Hallquist were quite indifferent.

The Daily Caller stated this about Hallquist: “Christine Hallquist, the country’s first major party transgender candidate as the newly minted Democratic nominee for the governorship of Vermont, once tweeted an insinuation that “radicalized Christians” are a problem that Americans currently “tolerate.”

“And we worry about sharia law!!” Hallquist tweeted in June 2017 along with a link to an article from “LGBTQ Nation” about a girl disqualified from a soccer team because she looked like a boy. “Radicalized Christians are a part of the American landscape, and we tolerate it.”

Hallquist’s tweets about Christians didn’t stop there. In January 2018, the Vermont candidate for governor tweeted a link to a Christian satire site jokingly claiming that a Christian evangelist said President Trump “was merely sharing the gospel” with Stormy Daniels along with the caption (and an obvious punctuation error) “Some of these Christian evangelist’s are just downright crazy.”

Several other tweets seemed to show a disdain for conservative Christians, including an assertion that people who allow children to be harassed for being gay probably “call themselves Christians.”

Hallquist won Tuesday’s Democratic primary for the Vermont governor’s race and is set to challenge incumbent GOP Gov. Phil Scott in November.”

It’s very clear to see that Hallquist is using Twitter to display her intolerance for the Christian beliefs. She has taken numerous news articles and referenced them in alignment with Christianity, thus using various news sources as a way to scrutinize the Christian faith.

She is displaying an act of intolerance towards the religion and it appears as though she is encompassing all believers of Christianity in her messages that speak out against the religion.

What would you say to someone who challenges your religion?
