  • BUSTED: Elizabeth Warren’s CFPB Used Secret “Slush Fund” To Funnel Billions Into Left-Wing Causes

    Was the real reason behind Senator Elizabeth Warren’s outrage over Mick Mulvaney’s appointment as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) about her own political survival? The New York Post’s Paul Sperry reports that the CFPB is engaged in a wide-variety of corruption. Everything from amassing secret ledgers to using penalties to ‘launder,’ funds into left-wing causes. Of course, because the CFPB operates independently of the U.S. Government, a full audit of the agency’s balance sheet have never been done. This sad reality may very well change under Mulvaney’s leadership.

    President Barack Obama collected some big bucks Thursday night at a star-studded fund-raiser in the New York home of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Among the guests: actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin; comedian Jimmy Fallon, designer Vera Wang, singer Alicia Keys, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who co-hosted the event. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was also there as the guests packed around five tables in a basement room. Hundreds of people awaited the president's arrival on the streets of the West Village near the Weinstein residence, a multi-story brick row house. Weinstein said he had...

    The Democratic National Committee, in dire financial straits due to lackluster fundraising this year, had its worst August raising money in a decade. Figures reported to the FEC on Wednesday night show not only a major drop-off in cash for the Democrats, but also a substantial increase in the party's debt. Washington Free Beacon: The DNC raised just $4.4 million last month, the second lowest August fundraising figure for the party in the past decade. The party had less cash on hand at the end of the month than it did at the beginning, as its spending outpaced its fundraising by $44,575....

    The Democratic National Committee's already dire financial standing worsened during the month of August, according to its Wednesday night filing to the FEC. The DNC raised just $4.4 million last month, the second lowest August fundraising figure for the party in the past decade. The party had less cash on hand at the end of the month than it did at the beginning, as its spending outpaced its fundraising by $44,575. And it gets worse. The DNC's debt substantially increased ... Party officials predicted in August that DNC fundraising figures would start to turn around, explaining that its fundraising staff...

    The Democratic National Committee could be leading the resistance against Trump, but it can't get out of its own way. In theory, the Democrats should be in a great position. Donald Trump has a 35 percent approval rating. The president's disdain for his Republican in the House and the Senate is making it difficult for him to pass major legislation and causing a rift within the GOP. There are more Democratic candidates preparing to run for House seats than any time in recent memory. And though Democrats have lost some high-profile special elections in 2017, they've done well in lesser...

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) expanded its massive fundraising lead over the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in July as the Democrats posted their worst July haul in a decade. The DNC raised just $3.8 million in July, compared to the $10.2 million raised by the RNC in the same month. While the GOP has no debt, the DNC added slightly to its debt in July, which now sits at $3.4 million. The Democrats haven't raised that little money in a July since 2007; the party raised $3.4 million in that month. The Hill obtained the RNC's fundraising numbers ahead of...

    Washington Post ^ | August 17, 2017 | By David Weigel
    The Democratic National Committee is jumping into the ongoing waves of protests that have followed Saturday’s events in Charlottesville, launching a #RiseAndOrganize campaign to direct activists toward electoral politics. “In addition to calling on Republicans to denounce Trump, the next step is getting people to commit to vote,” explained DNC chief executive Jess O’Connell. “This is a galvanizing moment.” The DNC has spent weeks on a “Resistance Summer” campaign, one of several simultaneous national efforts to galvanize protesters and get them working on achievable political wins. The #RiseAndOrganize campaign, explained O’Connell, would involve Democrats finding the best opportunities to grill...

    Former President Obama will re-emerge on the national scene this fall, though Democrats expect him to do so with caution. One aide describes the beginning of a "delicate dance" that aims to put Obama in the Democratic fray, but prevent him from remaining the face of the party. Aides will huddle with Obama in the coming weeks to plot out what shape the former president's fall schedule will take. Advisers close to him say that while he will play an active role in helping his party rebuild, much of his work will be behind the scenes. He is likely to...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has brought in nearly $26 million for the Democratic Party so far this year, according to a report. The majority of the $25.9 million Pelosi raised will go to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which will lead the Democrats' efforts to regain control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections. This year, the minority leader has sent the DCCC $24.7 million, which is $10 million more than Pelosi raised for the committee in the same period two years ago, according to the Washington Post. Pelosi raised millions through three "Speakers Cabinet" VIP events...

    President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign has poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into various Trump-owned properties since the beginning of 2017, according to the organization’s latest filings with the Federal Election Commission. The filings show the organization, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., has spent over $100,000 on various products and services in Trump family properties in Washington, D.C., New York, and Las Vegas. The largest expenditures are for commercial space in Trump Tower on Fifth Ave. in Manhattan, the flagship of the Trump family’s sprawling business empire. The campaign leases offices for approximately $40,000 per month, totaling just over...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) may not have achieved much since arriving in Washington, other than interrupting witnesses in official hearings. But her performances — preserved and promoted on YouTube — have made her a prospect for the presidential race in 2020 — and the Democrats’ latest fundraising weapon, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, as she lends her name to other candidates and causes.

    The president's high-dollar fundraiser Wednesday night at his Washington hotel is expected to bring in nearly $10 million for GOP campaign coffers and his 2020 re-election bid, the Washington Examiner has learned.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) has raked in over $5 million dollars in the first quarter of 2017 while gearing up for re-election in 2018. Warren's campaign account has increased from $4.8 million to more than $9.2 million, after receiving over $5.2 million in campaign funds this year, according to CNS News. In comparison, Warren only received $1 million in the 4th quarter of 2016. A major contributor to the funds was MoveOn.org, a liberal organization that raised over $250,000 for Warren. In addition, the senator herself started selling T-shirts bearing the slogan, "Nevertheless, She Persisted."

    The Republican National Committee, together with President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, raised more than $53 million in the first quarter of 2017, according to party and campaign officials, fueled by the same class of online donors who flocked to Mr. Trump last year. Of that, the RNC raised $41.3 million in the first three months of the year—more than double what its Democratic counterpart raised in the quarter after former President Barack Obama was elected in 2008—while Mr. Trump’s campaign raised $3.3 million and a joint committee between the two raised more than $9 million.

    The pattern continues… Those who are connected to the crimes and misdemeanors of the Clinton crime cartel live in hiding for fear of their lives. Of course, there was funneling of money going on. The Wikileaks and Guccifer 2.0 hacks went along way in documenting the quid pro quo nature of Clinton diplomacy. Back in the 90s, it was selling nuclear secrets to China, and schmoozing with high powered Chinese individuals, caught up in real estate deals, fundraising schemes and the like. So it is little surprising, though certainly alarming, that this story has surfaced of a Chinese-American businessman who...
