Ocasio-Cortez Boyfriend Troubles Reveal the Corruption at the Heart of Her Campaign

Last week, an enterprising conservative political consultant unearthed evidence that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) may have hired her boyfriend, Riley Roberts, to work in Congress. This news actually unraveled a far bigger story of corruption, however. As it turns out, a political group helping Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign had already paid Roberts during the campaign — and those payments from that shady organization may be the reason Ocasio-Cortez is in Congress today.

On Wednesday, Luke Thompson, a podcast host and former staffer for the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), shared some damning research into Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign. He discovered more about the relationship between Riley Roberts and the campaign, but he also unearthed a humongous corruption story.—More….

Israel jettisons PLO as negotiating partner on Trump peace plan

Israel jettisons PLO as negotiating partner on Trump peace planIsrael’s decision to withhold US$138 million dollars in tax revenues collected for the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) - equalling the estimated annual payments made to Palestinian Arabs (or their families) carrying out random and indiscriminate attacks against Israeli civilians—marks a watershed in Israel-PLO relations.

Israel’s action will see the PLO being finally jettisoned as a possible negotiating partner on President Trump’s long-delayed peace plan—deferred yet again until after the Israeli elections in April.

The Third Term

The Third TermMost of you are familiar with the Latin phrase, Laus Deo, which is inscribed in stone at the very top of the Washington Monument that few, if any, of us get to physically see but know, in fact, that the English translated idiom, ‘Praise be to God’ , is up there amazingly overlooking the entire Capital City of Washington, DC, the most corrupt and evil city known to man.

And, why it is my belief, which you are free to agree or dismiss as religious hogwash, that phrase will become extremely important to the witnesses who do agree, from our hypothetical front row seat, of the upcoming epic battles of good versus evil, the likes of which the world has not seen for a thousand years.

Keep in mind as you decide, that it has been said that Satan’s greatest accomplishment was convincing the world that he did not exist.

Trump Will Be The Most Transformative President in History

TRUMP WILL BE THE MOST TRANSFORMATIVE PRESIDENT IN HISTORYDonald Trump is destined to become the most transformative president in U.S. history! Here’s why:

Oh Justin! Don’t You Resign Too

Oh Justin! Don’t You Resign TooYesterday Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s principal secretary, Gerald Butts, resigned. Currently the Liberal government is involved in its worst scandal yet, being accused of trying to get then Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould not to proceed with criminal charges against SNC Lavalin, a company that contributes big time to the Liberal Party of Canada.

Butts’ resignation was one of those things, if this makes sense, which was both shocking and not totally unexpected. Butts and Trudeau go way back and have been friends since their university days or in Justin’s case, his university minutes. Butts was often referred to as Prime Minister Butts, Trudeau’s Brain and Trudeau’s Puppet Master. When Trudeau did or said something clearly beyond his mental capacity to do so, that act or statement was believed to have originated with Butts.

DC Mayor Gives Open Borders Group $100,000 to Help Immigrants Become Citizens

Months after spending $900,000 to supply immigrants and their families with “targeted services and resources,” the mayor of Washington DC is giving an open borders group $100,000 to provide English classes, legal consultants and workshops to help them become American citizens. The mayor, Muriel Bowser, proudly announced this month that the taxpayer allocation “represents the largest such government fund in the nation.” The money will help pay for projects that collaborate with employers to assist immigrant workers with the citizenship process by also hosting seminars, and individual legal consults. “Together, we’re giving more immigrants in our community a fair shot at citizenship,” Mayor Bowser said, bragging about similar programs funded with DC taxpayer dollars. “This grant builds on the work we have done through our Immigrant Justice Legal Services grant program and through the monthly citizenship workshops; it’s an example of how we can work together as a community and use local resources to break down barriers to citizenship.”

Powering a pacemaker with a patient’s heartbeat

Powering a pacemaker with a patient's heartbeatImplantable pacemakers have without doubt altered modern medicine, saving countless lives by regulating heart rhythm. But they have one serious shortcoming: Their batteries last only five to 12 years, at which point they have to be replaced surgically. Now, researchers have surmounted this issue by designing a pacemaker powered by the energy of heartbeats, according to a report in ACS Nano. The device was successfully tested in pigs, which have a similar physiology to humans.

Anti-Semitism Invades Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The “vile poison of anti-Semitism” that President Trump referred to in his recent State of the Union speech has clearly invaded Congress.

Democrat Rashida Tlaib from Michigan, one of two Muslim women elected to Congress, supports the replacement of Israel with a Palestinian state. Tlaib said, “A lot of my strength comes from being Palestinian.” After she won her primary race last year, she published several anti-Israel tweets and re-tweeted a fan who declared that Tlaib’s “first fight was for Palestine, always Palestine.”

Another Crop of Illegals Moves North

The savage response of the Trump administration to last November’s illegal alien caravan was such an object lesson for potential lawbreakers that the newest Illegal Alien Reunion Tour making its way through Mexico is 30 percent larger.
