REPORT: Beto Funneled $110K In Campaign Funds To His Own Web Development Company

Published

on

Democrat 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke evidently feels campaign rules are for other lesser candidates… not for him (the left’s Kennedy reincarnate). He funneled approximately $110,000 in campaign funds to a private web development company he and his wife owned at one time while he served as a congressman, according to FEC rules. It’s that other way of making money.

O’Rourke’s campaign, Beto for Texas, donated money to Stanton Street Technology Group in several different election cycles. That’s shady and unethical at best and smells of corruption. The campaign donated $58,544 to the group between 2011 and 2012, $39,060 between 2013 and 2014, $9,290 between 2015 and 2016, and $32,778 between 2017 and 2018, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records obtained by the Daily Caller.

From Breitbart:

“During that time, either O’Rourke or his wife owned Stanton Street Technology Group— a web development firm created by O’Rourke in 1998.

“The payments to the firm are legal if the campaign sends a bill for the cost of the services, but some people have criticized the practice as unethical, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“Amy Sanders O’Rourke, Beto’s wife, took over the web development firm when the Texas Democrat began serving in Congress in January 2013.

“She took the helm of the firm until March 2017, when she sold her share of the company for $100,001 to $1 million, according to a 2017 financial disclosure report for Beto O’Rourke’s campaign.

“Beto O’Rourke is not the only Democrat to be accused of funneling campaign money to a private company. An FEC complaint released Wednesday alleged that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) ran a “subsidy scheme” to go around federal campaign requirements.”

As stated, this is legal as long as the candidate doesn’t overpay for their own “consulting” services but the practice of “double-dealing” is on the radar of ethics watchdogs and Beto O’Rourke is guilty of it. This is similar to issues pertaining to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her campaign… her campaign manager also funneled funds to a company he set up and owned (Ocasio-Cortez also sat on the board) and that was apparently attempting to provide services well under fair market value.

This is an indicator that Beto is willing to play hardball when it comes to politics and ethics are simply a nuisance to him. Beto O’Rourke’s political and business decisions have faced ethical questions in the past.

Per The Daily Caller:

“He faced scrutiny in 2013 after purchasing Twitter stock before it was available to the general public, which ethics watchdogs said was a violation of House rules.

“Beto O’Rourke faced backlash from local El Paso residents after supporting a development project that converted housing for low-income residents into a retail destination — an endeavor proposed by his wealthy father-in-law.”

While Democrats are screaming for President Trump’s tax returns, they don’t seem to be concerned with the business dealings of the O’Rourke clan. Perhaps someone should look into that. I bet it would be fascinating, to say the least.

Remember, this guy’s family is worth billions and they didn’t get that wealthy by playing nice. Beto O’Rourke seems to feel he is above everyone else and the rules don’t apply to him. Just imagine what he would do as president.

Ocasio: ‘I Was Joking About The World Ending In 12 Years’

Published

on

Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is now claiming that she was only joking when she said that because of climate change the world will end in twelve years. In fact, she says everyone with two brain cells knows she was only kidding. Except of course all the kids who became activists because of her videos on the subject and her repeated charge that it was indeed true.

The young socialist proceeded to mock the Republican Party for taking her claim about the end of the world seriously, which she suggested was a combination of “dry humor + sarcasm.” Right… it fell flat so now she is trying to pretend she never meant it. Typical. “This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and ‘fact check’ it. Like the ‘world ending in 12 years’ thing, you’d have to have the social intelligence of a sea sponge to think it’s literal. But the GOP is basically Dwight from The Office so who knows,” wrote AOC in a tweet published on Mother’s Day. Evidently, she believes all her acolytes are idiots for believing her.

Ocasio-Cortez first addressed the topic back in January at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City. At the time, she was not joking when she said it either. Those in attendance gave her a roaring round of applause and then she emphasized the point by calling the fight against climate change “our World War II.”

“I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” stated Ocasio-Cortez. “And your biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our World War II.”

Not only has Ocasio-Cortez repeated her apocalyptic climate change vision over and over again… she has collaborated with The Intercept to create a video centered around the claim. “Climate change is here + we’ve got a deadline: 12 years left to cut emissions in half,” she captioned a tweet promoting the video last month.

The video was entitled: “A Message From the Future with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” and it pictured a future where AOC’s widely-panned and uber-expensive Green New Deal has inspired action to save the planet. In the video, she again says that we have a “12-year deadline.”

The Daily Wire reported at the time:

“The congresswoman then warns that we have “twelve years to change everything” before “hundreds of millions of people would be more likely to face food and water shortages, poverty, and death.”

“Twelve years to change everything,” she narrates. “How we got around, how we fed ourselves, how we made our stuff, how we lived and worked — everything. The only way to do it was to transform our economy, which we already knew was broken.”’

More from The Daily Wire:

“Moreover, as reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her 12-year declaration during an Instagram live-stream when a viewer mocked her over the claim.

“We have twelve years left to cut emissions by at least 50 percent if not more,” Ocasio-Cortez, visibly annoyed, told her viewers. “For everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but you’re grandkids will not, so understand that the internet documents everything.”

“She then went on a tangent about looking back in history books of the civil rights movement and seeing the white people holding signs against allowing black people to vote,” the Beacon noted.

“They would hold up these bigoted signs and they would hold up signs that said things like ‘What about white rights?’ and all of this stuff in the 1950s and 1960s, so just know that in the present day there are a lot of people who hide the fact that their families and that their grandparents fought against principles of equal rights in the United States, not 100 years ago, not 80 years ago, but in this generation’s lifetime,” said the elected rep.

“While a lot of people can hide that their grandparents did that in the civil rights movement, you should also know that the internet documents everything and your grandchildren will not be able to hide the fact that you fought against acknowledging and taking bold actions on climate change,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “People who are trying to mock and delay this moment, I mean—I just feel bad for you. I just pity you for your role in history right now.”‘

Ocasio-Cortez was not kidding when she made her claim. She got many young people and activists to join her in her ‘the sky is falling’ mantra… New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is among them. Virtually every 2020 Democratic contender supports her Green New Deal and her claim of global doom. So, she just called all of them morons as well.

She wasn’t joking when she made her claim but she was lying just as she is now. Perhaps Nancy Pelosi whispered in her ear that if she values her political career that she should tone it down and back off of this climate nonsense. It’s right out of the Democratic playbook.

Kamala Harris: I Will Take Gun Dealers’ Licenses Away With Executive Action If Elected

Published

on

Sen. Kamala Harris is once again vowing that she will use executive powers to enact gun control measures if Congress fails to act in the first 100 days of her presidential administration. That’s breathtakingly unconstitutional and all but tanks her chances in a presidential bid. We may have literally just dodged a Second Amendment bullet because of her arrogance.

“I’m proposing, one, that if by my 100th day in office when elected president of the United States, if the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk … then I’m prepared to take executive action because that’s what’s needed: action,” Harris, a California Democrat, and 2020 hopeful, said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

The first time Harris voiced her intentions on the issue was at a CNN town hall in late April. But she reiterated it on Sunday after yet another school shooting. This one involved a transgender shooter with an illegal immigrant felon for a father and a young hero… 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo who was killed after rushing the gunman to save his classmates.

“We are not waiting on tragedies and we are not waiting on good ideas,” Harris said, pointing to the “heroism of a child who we now mourn his loss, his parents’ only child.” I’m surprised she didn’t attack ‘thoughts and prayers’ as well here. Castillo’s parents probably hate her using their deceased son as a political pawn – his fellow students walked out of a vigil because of that same offense involving Colorado Democratic politicians.

From The New York Post:

“When asked how she liked Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) proposal for a federal gun registry she answered, “I like the idea. But, Jake, I’m going to tell you, on the issue of the need for gun safety laws, we’re not at any loss for good ideas. People have been having good ideas for decades on this issue.”

“Booker is also vying for the White House.

“Harris said that the country was waiting for Congress to act.

“If she was forced to take executive action, Harris said she would require those who sell more than five guns a year to do background checks.

“She would also have the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives take away licenses from gun dealers that don’t follow the law.

“Harris also expressed support for government intervention in dealing with Facebook. Co-founder Chris Hughes said Thursday that the social network should be broken up.

“Asked by Tapper if she agreed with Hughes, Harris answered, “yes, I think we have to seriously take a look at that, yes.”

“I mean, when you look at the issue, they’re essentially a utility. Like, there are very few people that can actually get by and be involved in their communities or society or in whatever their profession without somehow, somewhere using Facebook,” Harris said. “It’s very difficult for people to be engaged in any level of commerce without – so, we have to recognize it for what it is. It is essentially a utility that has gone unregulated. And as far as I’m concerned, that’s got to stop.”’

Harris also tried to walk back that she wanted to do away with private health insurance. She explained that while she supported Medicare-for-all “it doesn’t get rid of all insurance.” “It was in the context of saying, let’s get rid of all the bureaucracy. Let’s get rid of all the waste,” she said concerning her previous remark.

Harris said the Medicare-for-all bill she supports “doesn’t get rid of supplemental insurance.” That bill would also give healthcare services to illegal immigrants. Tapper asked if this meant Harris supported giving healthcare to illegal immigrants. “Let me just be very clear about this. I’m opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education or public health, period,” Harris answered.

And she figures taking away guns and the license to sell them is in the interest of public health evidently. The woman simply cannot open her trap without lying and trying to take away our constitutional freedoms.
