    You’ve successfully conducted adoptions since 2005. But suddenly, in 2019, prosecutors come after you, claiming you are engaging in human trafficking. What drastically changed over 14 years? This is the nightmare that has happened to Paul Petersen, who until January 7 was the Maricopa County Assessor in Arizona. Petersen was pressured into resigning his position after prosecutors got him indicted for bringing women from the Marshall Islands to the U.S. to give birth, then give their babies up for adoption. The prosecution says it’s illegal human trafficking. Prosecutors in Arizona, Utah and Arkansas are seeking federal and state charges against...

    Someone broke into investigative reporter John Solomon’s car parked near the White House the night before the senate impeachment trial began. The thief stole John Solomon’s laptop which contained sensitive information on former Vice President Joe Biden and Ukraine. The break-in, which happened across from the White House’s Eisenhower Executive Office Building, was described as a “professional job” and authorities believe the individual(s) used a sophisticated electronic jamming device to open the car’s lock. “It’s a pretty professional job,” John Solomon told RCI of the break-in, “but it’s probably just a coincidence.” “It was probably just a street criminal searching...

    A lie told often enough becomes the truth. I keep thinking about the above quote whenever anyone claims that the Obama administration was scandal-free. How many more times are we going to hear people make this claim and see it go unchallenged? During an interview on CNN on Friday, former Secretary of State John Kerry, who's in Iowa campaigning with Joe Biden, echoed the oft-repeated claim that the Obama-Biden administration lacked scandals. "I believe Joe Biden is the only person who has the set of relationships around the world, who has had this unbelievable breadth of experience as chairman of...

    Hunter Biden was spotted in LA with his pregnant wife getting into a Porsche said to cost about $92k brand new - and he's still in the middle of a paternity battle with another woman. Hunter Biden is 49 and his pregnant wife, Melissa Cohen, is only 33-years-old, so there's quite an age gap. Oh, and she's pregnant with his other little Biden. Meanwhile, Hunter is still dealing with the paternity results of another woman who just gave birth and it appears the DNA tests say the child's father is Hunter Biden. This woman is only 28-years-old and...

    Will Hunter Biden sink his father’s presidential campaign? The “sleaze factor” is becoming an indelible mark on The Family Biden as a series of revelations keeps unfolding and raising suspicions that Papa Joe’s political weight enabled his (formerly?)  crack-addicted son to reap riches from Ukraine and China while Daddy was forming policy on them. Meanwhile, all on his own, Hunter managed to knock up a stripper and is being sued for child support and facing court proceedings that could force him to disclose his wealth and income. This, while romancing his dead brother’s widow and dumping his wife. Wouldn’t...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was charged with perjury for failing to disclose her business interest in Healthy Holly, LLC, while she served as a Maryland state senator, the state prosecutor’s office said Wednesday. “She is charged with omitting to declare on her financial disclosure statements when she was a Maryland state senator in 2016, her relationship with Healthy Holly, LLC,” Maryland State Prosecutor Charlton Howard said. Charging documents filed in circuit court in Anne Arundel County said Pugh did not disclose her business interest in the company between 2012 and 2016 or her partial ownership of...

    A court hearing has been scheduled for Friday in an unsolved Obama-era scandal involving the brothers hired by House Democrats who were fired when one was identified as “an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives.” That was when a computer server containing evidence had gone “missing,” noted Washington watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking information on the Awan brothers case, “The Awan Brothers IT scandal implicates national security and involves a cover-up by House Democrat leadership and, now, the Deep State DOJ,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. **SNIP** “In a...

    Prince Andrew is still facing the wrath of the British royal family. The 59-year-old was given a “tense” telling off by his father Prince Philip, who told the royal to “take his punishment” because he had endangered “the very fabric of the royal family,” a palace insider told The Telegraph on Thursday. According to the outlet, Andrew was ordered to drive 140 miles to Queen Elizabeth’s country retreat Sandringham for a “showdown” with the Duke of Edinburgh. “It was a tense meeting and Philip told his son he had to take his punishment,” claimed the source. “There was no screaming...

    **SNIP** This comes after a year of resignations and scandal, all centered around the “Healthy Holly” business dealings involving former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh and several board members and executives. The issues began after a report that Pugh filed disclosure forms with incorrection information and did not disclose her position with the UMMS board in city ethics forms, after making a deal in 2011 where she received $500,000 selling her self-published book series to the UMMS. Pugh, who became mayor in 2016, was among a third of the board who had UMMS contracts with their businesses. She resigned from the...

    MSN News ^ | October 29, 2019 | Alan Sudermn and Jim Mustian, The Associated Press
    When President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, a Saudi tycoon and his business associate sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to the U.S. to help pay for the inaugural celebration and get a picture with the president, according to court documents and an analysis of campaign finance records by The Associated Press. U.S. election law prohibits foreign nationals from making those sorts of political contributions. But the donations Sheikh Mohammed Al Rahbani tried to send to Obama's inaugural committee were funneled through a seasoned straw donor, the records and the AP analysis show. That intermediary, Imaad Zuberi, agreed this...

    Former CIA Director and retired US Army Gen. David Petraeus said on Sunday the United States betrayed its longstanding ally in its fight against ISIS, the Syrian Kurds, by withdrawing US forces from the northern part of the country. Petraeus, who previously oversaw military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, criticized President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw US forces from northern Syria on CNN's "State of The Union." "Well, I think we have abandoned our Syrian Kurdish partners. They took over 10,000 losses as the defeat of Islamic State was carried out," he told CNN's Jake Tapper. "The elimination of the...

    Hunter Biden's only qualification for obtaining a seat on the Amtrak board of directors in 2006 was that he often rode trains. That's according to his father Joe Biden's Delaware colleague in the Senate, Tom Carper, who offered the sole nomination speech for the younger Biden when his name was presented in the Senate Commerce Committee. In his prepared remarks, Carper said Biden would be an "excellent addition" to the board, but was unable to list any reason beyond his frequent use of trains. "More significantly, Hunter has spent a lot of time on Amtrak trains," Carper said after listing...

    Felicity Huffman reported to a California federal correctional institution Tuesday to serve time for her part in the college admissions scandal. **SNIP** Huffman, 56, pleaded guilty in May and accepted responsibility for her part in the high-profile college admissions scandal that demonstrated the lengths wealthy parents will go in order to secure their kids a spot at the college of their choice. The "Desperate Housewives" star pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud earlier this year. She confessed to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older...

    The poll released last week by Fox News that claimed most Americans favor the impeachment of President Trump underrepresented Republicans and Independents, The Post has found. The poll said 51% of voters were in favor of impeachment and removal from office, while 40% did not want him impeached. Princeton New Jersey pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican, and 38% Independent, according to Gallup. A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% oppose it,...
  • Baltimore mayor who resigned after kickback scandal sells home for $75,000

    BALTIMORE (AP) — Property records show former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh, who resigned in May, has sold her Maryland home for less than half of its assessed value. The Baltimore Sun reports records show she sold one of her two Ashburton homes for $75,000 to Boaz Alternative Energy and Technologies LLC in July. Property records list the home’s assessed value as $187,700. Pugh resigned in May under pressure amid a flurry of investigations into whether she arranged bulk sales of her self-published children’s books to disguise hundreds of thousands of dollars in kickbacks. She’s still being investigated at the state...

    President Donald Trump’s shocking request Thursday on the White House lawn that not only Ukraine, but also China, should investigate the Bidens, may have shown his open defiance of impeachment threats, but it also gave major air time to the innuendo the president and his allies have been trying to spread about Hunter Biden's links to a company funded by a Chinese investor. While the substance of news reports focused on the brazenness of the president’s publicly calling on foreign governments to investigate a rival, their headlines and chyrons often communicated a simpler message: “Trump: Ukraine & China Should Investigate...

    The unidentified whistleblower at the CIA makes scores of references to Rudolph W Giuliani in the complaint against president Trump with most of the information coming from Mr. Giuliani's own public statements and news reports. Whistleblower complaint's typically contain inside information not known to investigators until they are tipped off. In the case of Mr. Trump's lawyer, who is a private citizen, congressional Democrats could have gathered most of the whistleblower's tidbits about Mr. Giuliani from the internet. ...

    Sometimes, when a news story is still unfolding in real time, we can’t do much better than to hazard a guess about how it will affect the polls. Of course, we can also not hazard a guess — that is, we can not say anything about it at all. But given that I wrote yesterday about public opinion surrounding the impeachment of President Trump, this is one time when I think it’s worth weighing in on the latest development; namely, the White House’s decision to release, on Wednesday, Trump’s reconstructed conversation (note: not a verbatim transcript) with Ukrainian president Volodymyr...
