    Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., will set up a legal defense fund to help pay for tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees relating to the federal criminal probe into his dealings with foreign regulators, according to a new report. Menendez's office confirmed plans to create the fund to NBC News on Monday as the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York continued its months-long investigation into the senator. The probe has already cost Menendez roughly $200,000 in campaign funds, according to filings obtained by NBC. "Senator Menendez is confident that this official inquiry will be successfully...

    Armstrong Economics ^ | 30 Mar 23 | Martin Armstrong
    A number of people have asked why does Socrates say that the United States will lose this war. One states: “The standalone American firepower without UK/ France, etc, itself is tremendous. How does Socrates say that America will lose the war? It may lose financially. The Chinese have the worst track record in any war.” Perhaps I should just say, cyclically – it’s just TIME. The Neocons are in charge of this war. They are trying conventionally for their constant goal of REGIME CHANGE. They are doing what Khrushchev had threatened Communism would win and we will bury you.

    President Biden's brother was hired to engage in secret negotiations with the Saudi government on behalf of a US construction company because of his relationship with the then vice president, legal documents claim. Jim Biden was selected because Saudi Arabia 'would not dare stiff the brother of the Vice-President who would be instrumental to the deal,' bombshell affidavits obtained by allege. Joe's younger brother Jim, 73, was at the center of a $140million settlement negotiation between Hill International and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 2012.

  • Sam Bankman-Fried says he donated just as many millions to Republicans as Democrats, but didn’t publicize it because reporters would ‘freak the ---- out’

    <p>Sam Bankman-Fried’s donations to Democrats are well documented. In an interview released Tuesday, the former FTX CEO said he similarly funded Republican campaigns—but kept it quiet.</p><p>SBF was the second-largest Democratic donor during the last election cycle, and he told Fong he gave about the same amount to Republicans. Politicians including Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Rep. Jesus “Chuy” Garcia (D-Ill.), and Rep. Kevin Hern (R-Okla.) have since given the money back or pledged to after FTX imploded and rocked the crypto industry.</p>

    The CEO of now-bankrupt FTX admitted that FTX was nothing more than a laundromat for the Ukrainian government. TGP reported earlier that the now-bankrupt FTX was transferring money to Ukraine and then laundering money back from Ukraine to the Democrat party. FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried donated $38 million to Democrats this year. Mitch McConnell took funding from FTX for his Senate Leadership Fund.

    New York Post ^ | 8/30/22 | Michael Goodwin
    President Biden is going to deliver a prime-time speech Thursday on what the White House calls the “battle for the soul of the nation.” It’s a timely topic with rich possibilities, but none richer than the notion that the Big Guy is qualified to address America’s soul. Unless he’s going to confess how his family made millions by selling access to foreign governments and Communist oligarchs, Biden will be stuck spinning a web of fiction. No problem there because fiction is what he’s good at. He has a gift for playing make-believe. All politicians lie, but Biden doesn’t stop there....

    The New York bishop who was robbed at gunpoint during a livestreamed service was once accused of conning a congregant out of her life savings, according to court documents - all while running his unsuccessful campaign for Brooklyn Borough president in 2021. Bishop Lamor Whitehead, known for his designer clothes and luxury cars, raised eyebrows when police valued the worth of the jewelry stolen from him and his family on Sunday to be close to $1 million. Whitehead has over 1.6 million followers on Instagram, where he regularly goes live. The parishioner, Pauline Anderson, sued Whitehead in September 2021, alleging...

    Three thieves were caught on tape barging into a Brooklyn church on Sunday where controversial bishop Lamor Whitehead — an ally to Mayor Adams — was preaching and snatched $400,000 worth of jewelry off of him and his wife. Whitehead, the Rolls-Royce-driving bishop who recently tried to broker a deal for the surrender of a man accused of a subway murder to the mayor, was preaching at Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministry on Remsen Ave. near Avenue D in Canarsie about 11:15 a.m. Sunday when three masked bandits stormed into the church, the pastor and cops confirmed.

  • ‘Bald Faced Liar’: Vulnerable Democrat Senator Pushes Hard For Border Wall As Election Nears (what a racist!)

    Arizona Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly, who’s facing a tough re-election bid, touted his role in getting the Biden administration to fill gaps in the border wall despite having voted against legislation aiding the barrier in the past. Kelly applauded the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) decision to close the gaps after “months of coordination” between it, his office and the White House, according to a Thursday statement. But the former astronaut voted against border wall initiatives at least three times in 2021, including an amendment to prohibit the federal government’s cancellation of border wall contracts and two other amendments seeking...

    If you think your social media experience is unimpeded, we have proof to the contrary. Just before the Fourth of July, Military Miniature Press announced the reveal of The Russia-Ukraine War Factbook, a comprehensive and unobstructed guide to the ongoing conflict. As we describe it, the book is an "objective look" at the war, geared not by propaganda or political influence, but by facts. Yet when we tried to advertise the book on Facebook and Twitter, we received the same response — it fell under a blanket ban merely for being about the Russia-Ukraine War. We're not ignorant of the...

The tax warrant has increased 52% to cost $2,461 due to the representative not paying the taxes.

    At today’s hearing on Marilyn Mosby’s motion to have the federal charges against her thrown out, her lawyer argued that Leo J. Wise, the lead prosecutor, “has a penchant for prosecuting Black elected officials.” “All we did was draw the logical conclusion from his past conduct that this prosecution is consistent with his history of prosecuting Black elected officials,” asserted attorney A. Scott Bolden. U.S. District Judge Lydia Kay Griggsby, who is Black, pushed back. “Are you aware, Mr. Bolden, of any evidence that Mr. Wise has been found to have prosecuted someone because of their race?” she asked. “In...

    I received an interesting letter in the mail today. The letter is from one of those "quickie" land buyers who prey on the ignorant people. I bought a lot which is in a subdivision on Toledo Bend Reservoir on the Texas side 34 years ago. The letter offers me $250 for the residential lot. Does anyone have a creative way to respond to this guy to send the message of "Don't ever do that again!"? I wanted to post the redacted letter to Facebook, but don't know if that is legal or not. Words escape me on how people can...
