BOOM!!! Theft, FEC hacked or the Republican party has sold out President Trump, his supporters and America. Billions of dollars transferred to DNC PAC and the “Joe Biden for President” committee from Republican NRCC, NRSC, Congressional Leadership Fund and other conservative committees, PACs and organizations

 FUNDRAISING PAC Filings at the Federal Election Commission show Billions of dollars being transferred out of Republican party committees and PACS, directly to the DNC PAC and the “Biden for President” committee.

 

Sources up front

For those that just read the headlines and the first paragraph, here is the source where you can verify this for yourself. It’s at the Federal Election Commissions website. Follow instructions in detail.

  • Click the link provided. It will take you to a PAC named “Biden Action Fund
  • In the middle of the page it will say “Disbursements”. Don’t do a search or anything else. (The link should take you to the page with “RAW” already highlighted. If that’s the case, just click “Export” located
    in the upper left hand corner ).
  • Click “RAW” if not highlighted.
  • In the upper right hand corner click “Export”.
  • A box at the bottom will pop up that says “Download”. Download the file. (It’s a csv. File).

There is no other way to see this information. You have to download the file. It has to be the “Raw” version.

The file is fairly large for a csv. It’s 1.2 to 2.3 gigs. To view the file, I used Apache Open Office. If you have better, use it. File is too large for Open Office. It doesn’t load the last few rows So I ended up viewing it in Firefox.

For the last two days I’ve downloaded the files on multiple computers and on my phone just to make sure the file was coming from the FEC. Same information each time.

LINKS

Link 1. Disbursements click here or    https://www.fec.gov/data/disbursements/?data_type=efiling&committee_id=C00746651

I’’ve included a second link.

You are going to want to see the Receipts(Sources of funding).

Less than .09521% of funding for the Biden Action fund comes from donations less than $200. *Kamala Harris’s “For the People” committee gets 45% of its funding from donations over $200.

 This download will show you that Biden was lying at the debates about not being funded by Wall Street. There are multiple campaign finance violations to be found. Be sure you get the “RAW” version of this also.

A “ZZ” will be where the state of residence should be for all donors that have non USA  address.(foreugn donors?)

Link2. Receipts click here or

https://www.fec.gov/data/receipts/?data_type=efiling&committee_id=C00746651

The headline. The links. What’s it all about?

In the Disbursements download you will find multiple filings of cash being transferred from conservative Campaigns/Pacs. The amount of cash being transferred for each transaction can be as low as $100,000 to $5,000,000,000 and up..

This is either the biggest theft/ hack in American history. The biggest glitch in the FEC database in American history or the Republican party backstabbing the President, all Trump Supporter, most conservatives , and just about everyone living in the USA. What little integrity that remained in the political parties in the USA is gone. What little integrity that remained in the political parties in the USA is gone. This will prove that the Republicans are/have been working with democrats all along. A one party government.

I see Joe Biden’s “ Biden for President “ funds growing at a record breaking rate..

 

The following are screenshots of the actual data you will find in the download.

National Republican Senatorial Committee

National Republican Congressional Committee

 

Senate Conservatives Fund

 

 

Williamson County Republican

Indiana Republican State committee

 

On July 16 2020 the NRA endorsed Trump.

National Association for Gun Rights Inc

National Rifle Association of American Political Victory Fund

 

Pro Life Pacs

West Virginians For Life Inc.

Right to Life/ Oregon

 

These are just a few examples of what you will find in the download. If you have not downloaded the file by now, you really should while it is still available. The list keeps growing. Joe Biden has almost doubled in total funding over night.

*What I find strange is that this data should be in the receipts, not in the disbursements.

I’ve provided two examples below of what you will find in the second link I provided above. 

The first graphic only shows  title and amount donated.  Even though the information is public record, I felt it best  to not reveal their personal information. .
These are the people that want to control your lives. These are the people that profit off your misfortune. These are some of the people that end up with your hard earned dollars.

 

The second image below shows  foreign donors you will find in the receipts download. Your download will have all the information I left out.
*Its illegal to accept foreign money. It does not matter if it was intentional or not.



Closing Rant(Just my opinion)

This is exactly why people must vote for Trump. People on the right, Left center, up, down, the side, up front, behind, standing on the fence, sitting on the fence, loitering at the liquor store, everywhere, everyone must vote for Trump. This is not a simple right/ left problem. It’s the people against the establishment. Trump is all we have in DC. That’s if we make it to election day.

There is so much cheating going on that at this point every single ballot must be checked. If Trump loses he must not accept the loss until every ballot is checked, and not by democrats.

Daily we see where ballots are thrown away by postal employees. Ballots printed wrong. Multiple duplicate ballots sent out. Ballots with people’s pets name on them. Ballots with dead people’s names. Ballots with fake names. Everything from democrats extorting the electoral college to shutting down USPS buildings so they can postmark ballots ahead of time. Some will be held on to until first results come in after election day. Then they will know how many more they need to turn in and win the election. Some of them will be sent to mailing companies to be mixed in with regular mail, then mailed out.

If they want to mess up the election enough to where it forces a vote in the House of Representatives That’s fine. The senate gets to pick the VP. They would have to go with Biden. Biden would immediately fail and Trump would take over and be able to run for another term in the next election,

Swamp leadership is so desperate that they continue to expose themselves more and more each day. It’s so obvious that it’s embarrassing. If we have a Trump loss and If we don’t have a brief civil war after it, and if we lose that war. The country will fail. Democrats will remove the police. Community patrolling will takes its place. This is where the Muslim mortality police steps in with their Sharia law. It’s already going on  in New York and other cities.

Racist policies will go into effect. Similar to what is going on in Oakland Calif. They are giving money to blacks and illegals. Paying them so they don’t have to work. ..Maybe like Newsom’s plan where he gives illegals “cash” for unemployment. They doon’t have to show ID or any other type of documentation.

Any policy where it gives money to illegals is a scam. Almost a perfect scam. …They say they gave the money to the illegals but pocketed it themselves. Impossible to to trace the money because the illegals don’t need to show ID. We will never know who got the money.

Maybe they will just burn you out, like what’s happening is California.  This is what many Californians  think has been going on.

Next city to burn would be around Berkeley California. Fires could start today, tomorrow or Tuesday.

Back to Newsom. There are a minimum of 30,000 homeless in the LA area alone. Newsom is sending millions to cities that “qualify”. How to “qualify” is a mystery. What I do know is that the “qualified” cities are taking that money and buying hotels and remodeling them. Average cost is $100,000 per living space. He’s even giving money to the Pomo Indian tribe so they can buy and remodel a hotel. You know, the ones in California that don’t have to pay taxes and run their own government. Native indians  own all the casinos in Califirnia. How much you want to bet that hotel will be a casino?

Yup, millions of California tax money being spent.  All that money to create 579 housing units.

Let’s not forget the millions currently being spent to house homeless in hotels. Yes, tax money is pays for their housing, and in some cases, their drug habit.

Eventually, complete lawlessness.

Civil War? More like a world war. The left will bring in the UN. That means all the loser countries that leached off the USA after we saved them from being destroyed. That also means China taking sides with the left. You can count on Canada and Mexico helping the left which opens the west coast for invasion. We will have Russia on our side simply because Trump doesn’t believe in framing a country for crimes made up by the left.

There is something far more dangerous than anything I just mentioned. Something we all see in our lives. Some more than others. It can be our best friend or our worst enemy. It can get you when you least expect it. It’s opportunity. What will a person do given the right opportunity.

Generally speaking the average person knows right from wrong. One person can see the keys left in a car running and would never consider taking the car.. Another would see it, want to take it, but out of fear of getting caught, decides to leave it where it is. Another would see it as a opportunity to “come up” and take the car. Three possible choices. We will always have people that  will follow the law. We will always have people that would only break the law if they thought they could  get away with it. We will always have criminals. That’s where the police come in. Their existence alone creates better odds for your safety. 3 to 1 in your favor

There are people far worse than the common criminal. Their minds occupy the space where insanity meets sanity. They have no conscious. These people are predators. They prey on people and never get caught. They could be your neighbor or a friend of a friend and you would never know. They understand how opportunity works. Out of fear of getting caught they keep themselves in check. The odds are against them. Take away the police the odds of you becoming a victim just doubled, against you. Now you have to worry the person that will always be a criminal and the person that no longer fears getting caught.

People don’t understand. The danger is always at your door. Police keep the balance in your favor. Without them only creates opportunity for criminals.

Opportunity can turn normal law abiding citizens into criminals.

#Of course, this only matters if we make it that far

I’m going to give the republican party the benefit of the doubt until  more information comes out.   The system might be hacked.  More committees are  being added with money flowing to the Biden for President committee as we speak.  But….

If this is not a glitch in the system and it turns out that the democrats are actually stealing the money, they must be removed from the House,  Senate and every other political position of power in the country. If it turns out that Republicans are, guilty, then Capital Hill must fall. Every member of congress and the senate must be taken into custody.  If this is a set up to catch people like me digging around in the future. It won’t work.  It won’t stop me.

I’m at a loss for words.  Let my know your thoughts,

Respectfully,

Deplorable Patriot

Kamala Harris lied on her Financial Disclosures and is connected to multiple campaign finance violations

Kamala Harris neglected to include all her financial information in her Financial Disclosure Reports(FDR) required by the Senate. Since her first day in the Senate until 7/8/2019 she neglected to disclose one of her pension plans. That plan is named “Legislatures Retirement System”.

It wasn’t until 7/8/2019 when she finally decided to disclose the pension plan.

While filing her FDR that was required of her at the time, she  filed amended FDR’s for the years of 2015. 2016, 2017, 2018.  The amended version filed far past the allowed deadlines. Years past.

The new amended versions now include the pension plan.

If a Senator makes a error or mistakenly leaves something out of their FDR’s, they are allowed to amend their disclosure report. They are expected to have the amendment filed that same year with a reasonable excuse.

This isn’t the case with Harris. Each year she made amendments to her FDR’s she neglected to include the Pension plan. She filed at least 8 times in 4 years and didn’t include the pension plan. She really doesn’t have an excuse for her negligence.

The following images are screenshots of pages from three current amended FDR’s.

Because of the size of the files I’ve only included pages from the reports that show the  pension plan. For the same reason I’ve also left out the original FDR’s. Not to worry because I”ve included links to the original FDR’s, amended FDR’s along with sources to everything mentioned here today. These can be found at the bottom of the page.

 

 

 

 

As you can see all of these were filed at the same time and day in 2019.

It’s important to understand that a Senator can be charged with a crime if they fail to report any required information.

Having to amend the FDR every year makes a person question her motives. Withholding information then adding it on 4 years later is criminal.

The following is a basic overview of some of the Financial Disclosure rules.

Public disclosure of a public official’s personal financial interest is often considered the key component to an effective code of conduct.  The drafters of the original Senate Code of Official Conduct in the 95th Congress considered “full and complete disclosure” to be the heart of the Code of Conduct. Pursuant to statute and Senate rules, Members, officers, certain employees of the Senate (including fellows and government employees detailed to the Senate), and Senate candidates are required to file comprehensive public financial disclosure reports. The Senate has required public reporting by statute and by Senate Rule since 1978.” 

Members, officers, and certain employees of the United States Senate, related offices, and candidates for the Senate are required by Title I of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978, as amended (the “Act,” 5 U.S.C. app., Section 101 et seq., also adopted as Senate Rule 34) and Senate Rule 41.1 to file Financial Disclosure Reports with the Secretary of the Senate, Office of Public

“The Act gives the Senate Select Committee on Ethics  the authority to administer the law for the Senate, promulgate the Senate Financial Disclosure Report Forms and Instructions, and issue advisory opinions regarding the Act for the Senate and related offices and Senate candidates.”

In addition to any Committee action, the Ethics in Government Act authorizes the Attorney General of the United States to seek a civil penalty of up to $50,000 against an individual who knowingly and willfully falsifies or fails to file or to report any required information.  Moreover, anyone who knowingly and willfully falsifies or conceals any material fact in a statement to the Government may be subject to fines, criminal prosecution, and sentencing.
See 5 U.S.C. appx. § 104(a)”.

I should point out that it doesn’t appear that she disclosed the pension plan when she filed her taxes. To be fair, it might not be required.  I’m not an expert on taxes.  I’ll  provide a link  to the tax forms she has released to the public.  I should mention that the documents appear to be incomplete and there is no way of knowing if these are the actual forms she gave to the IRS.

*Tax forms revealed,  Kamala Harris donated her clothes to Goodwill and used the receipt for a $15,000 write off on her taxes

It looks like  Harris only updated her disclosures when she decided to run for president.  This sort of criminal behavior is to be expected from Harris.  If you were to look at her campaign  at the Federal Election  Commission(FEC)  you would find that her “Kamala Harris for the People” committee and her “Kamala Harris for Senate” committee are connected to multiple  Campaign Finance violations. The most frequent violation is for accepting donations from ineligible sources.  Joe Biden has the same problems but by far more.  I’ll discuss that in the near future.  I should mention that many of the ineligible sources are the same in both the Biden and Harris committees.

  Here is examples.  Names have been redacted because of FEC laws.

 

If you  look at the entry that is dated 11/30/19 the unredacted page would show that this is the same person.  That many donations in one day should raise some flags.   Sometimes there will be donations almost daily through out  the year,  from the same sources.  That should also raise some flags.

Clicking on the names of the committees above will take you to the FEC pages I just mentioned.  Just open the RFAI files.

*Closer examination of people/businesses  on the receiving end  of some of  her committee  disbursements  will reveal that she paid at least one business that is using an address that comes up vacant.

It doesn’t matter how you look at it, Kamala Harris is a liar and a  criminal.

Al Sharpton’s 2004 presidential campaign still owes more than $900K

It’s good to be a well-connected, demorat “reverend.”

From NY Post: Fifteen year’s later, the check is still in the mail.

The Rev. Al Sharpton’s failed 2004 presidential campaign still owes more than $900,000. The unpaid debt of his committee, “Sharpton 2004,” has remained unchanged for a decade, according to its most recent FEC filing in March 2019.

The campaign has not filed any of its required disclosure forms since then, earning multiple letters of rebuke from the feds. “If committees are unable to pay debts, they can file a debt-settlement plan with the FEC . . . committees could not just decide not to pay,” a spokesman from the Federal Election Commission told The Post.

The holy man’s campaign is in the hole, despite him personally earning more money than ever. In addition to a lucrative hosting gig on MSNBC, Sharpton raked in cash helming his influential nonprofit National Action Network. In 2018, he pocketed more than a million dollars from the charity.

Since the debt is owed by the campaign committee, and not Sharpton directly, the rev is not on the hook for the cash. Rather his campaign treasurer, Andrew Rivera, is the one legally responsible for it. Rivera did not respond to multiple requests from The Post.

“It does reflect poorly on the people at the helm. I have worked for candidates who I know have taken great pains to make sure staff and consultants are taken care of,” Jerri Ann Henry, a consultant who had worked around campaigns and PACs for 15 years, told The Post. “Frankly, almost a million dollars, that’s a lot of money. Today’s campaigns spend at that level all the time, but that is very significant coming all the way back in 2004.”

Sharpton told The Post he was good for the money. “I have asked Andrew Rivera, the finance chair of my 2004 campaign, to set up a meeting with the Federal Election Commission so that I can resolve any campaign debts related to Sharpton 2004,” he said. “I am willing to work out a settlement for all claims with my own money to the degree that I’m allowed and will raise money directly . . . Even if I am not legally liable for it, I am certainly morally responsible.”

Shocker, not: Ilham Omar funneled $150,000 to alleged lover’s consulting group

Mynett and Omar

Not holding my breath for any investigation.

From NY Post: Rep. Ilhan Omar paid another $150,000 to Tim Mynett’s political consulting group in the three months after The Post first revealed allegations the pair were romantically involved, records show.

The 37-year-old Minnesota congresswoman’s campaign has funneled $146,712.63 to Mynett’s E Street Group since The Post in August reported allegations she was having an affair with her paid consultant, records show.

The latest payments to Mynett’s group were for digital advertising, fundraising consulting and video production.

When news of the alleged affair broke, Omar had already paid $223,000 through her campaign since 2018 for fundraising consulting, internet advertising, digital communications, and travel expenses to the E Street Group — taking the latest total to $370,000.

But the federal agency charged with probing the campaign finance complaint against Omar is powerless to act because it doesn’t have enough commissioners on the bench to investigate.

“This is something every American should be very concerned about,” said Craig Holman, government affairs lobbyist at the watchdog group Public Citizen. “We have no election cop on the beat. The Federal Election Commission essentially closed its doors so everyone knows they can pretty much do whatever they want to do and that’s the status of our political system today.

Both Omar and Mynett have denied the allegations in Beth Mynett’s divorce papers that the consultant dumped his wife in April because he was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative.

In October, Omar filed for divorce from her husband Ahmed Hirsi amid the affair allegations — claiming the marriage was “irretrievable.” The split was finalized on Nov. 5.

The congresswoman’s office and the E Street Group did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.

Conservative watchdog the National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint against Omar with the Federal Election Commission in the wake of the bombshell report — seeking a probe into whether the Democrat used campaign funds to rendezvous with her alleged lover.

But because the FEC has only three of six commissioner slots filled and needs at least four members to vote on complaints — their hands are tied.

“It doesn’t surprise me at all,” Holman said of the continued payments from Omar to her alleged love interest. “We literally have no election cop on the beat and we’re entering the 2020 election that promises to be the most expensive election in history.”

Ruh roh: Tlaib “frantically” asked campaign for personal money; ethics probe announced

From Fox News: The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses — and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process.

The document dump was related to the committee’s ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be “expanded” based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE).

Additionally, the Ethics Committee acknowledged for the first time on Thursday an investigation into Florida Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings concerning a “personal relationship with an individual employed in his congressional office.”

Texts and emails released by the Ethics Committee show Tlaib frantically contacting members of her staff for financial help.

In one April 2018 email offered as an exhibit by OCE, Tlaib wrote that she was “struggling financially right now” and was “sinking.” She continued: “So I was thinking the campaign could loan me money, but Ryan said that the committee could actually pay me. I was thinking a one time payment of $5k.”

In another email, on April 4, 2018, Tlaib wrote: “I am just not going to make it through the campaign without a stipend.”

“With the loss of a second income to lean back on,” she wrote. “I am requesting $2,000 per two weeks but not exceeding $12,000. The cost of living stipend is going towards much needed expenses due to campaigning that includes car maintenance, child care and other necessities. Please let me know if I can proceed.”

In August of that year, Tlaib texted her future chief of staff Ryan Anderson at 6:38 a.m.: “Sorry for the early text but do you think the campaign can still pay me a stipend until the general. Trying to get out of debt.”

“I think we definitely afford to do so. But we need to really clearly define your time and space,” Anderson responded, noting that the arrangement could arouse “concern” among the media.

The OCE also attached scans of checks made out to Tlaib from her campaign, totaling thousands of dollars.

Talib’s lawyers said in August there was no evidence that she violated the law on purpose or otherwise, and insisted there were no bad intentions. They noted that Federal Election Commission (FEC) regulations permit campaigns to “pay limited salary to candidates who curtail outside employment to focus on their campaigns” in certain limited conditions that, the lawyers said, were met in this instance.

The attorneys went on to say it was “most irregular” for OCE to call for a probe into a member of Congress based on pre-election activities, and argued that there was no “conscious disregard of any law or regulation.” Tlaib was paid by her campaign after Election Day, the attorneys conceded, but they asserted that the money was for services performed before Election Day.

But Tlaib’s campaign committee, Rashida Tlaib for Congress, allegedly “reported campaign disbursements that may not be legitimate and verifiable campaign expenditures attributable to bona fide campaign or political purposes,” according to a release from OCE that unanimously recommended the Ethics Committee investigate Tlaib.

Union backing de Blasio 2020 bid scores major City Hall favor

From NY Post: Mayor Bill de Blasio has ordered the Department of City Planning to study mandatory permitting for all new hotels across the city, an unprecedented move that would give the politically powerful Hotel Trades Council tremendous leverage.

The move comes as de Blasio banks on that union’s support for his quixotic presidential bid, igniting a new round of criticism from good-government groups over pay-to-play behavior from a City Hall badly tarnished by a string of campaign finance scandals.

“At a minimum, it creates the appearance of impropriety and illegality,” said Susan Lerner, the head of good government group Common Cause. “The mayor keeps setting up situations that beg for a pay-to-play interpretation.”

Despite the appearances, de Blasio denied any impropriety. “That’s just inaccurate in every way,” he told NY1’s Errol Louis Monday night.

Special permitting would require any developer seeking to build a new hotel to go through an exhaustive review process, including community board recommendations and City Council approval, before they could start construction, even if the land is already zoned for commercial and hotel uses.

Only hotels opened in recently rezoned neighborhoods like Midtown East or in manufacturing areas are currently covered by such a requirement.

“This is a political decision by the mayor, not a land-use decision,” said Kenneth Fischer, a former Brooklyn councilman and land-use expert.

“That doesn’t mean that it’s a quid pro quo,” he added. “[De Blasio] believes that union membership for hotel workers is a path to the middle class and their political and ideological interests line up on this issue.”

City Planning officials confirmed Monday that the administration requested the study based on conversations that began around April — just a month before de Blasio launched his flailing presidential campaign. They added there is no firm deadline for the study to be finished.

Crain’s New York Business first reported the news.

De Blasio narrowly avoided state and federal indictment in 2017 for trading favors with donors to a nonprofit controlled by his allies, the Campaign for One New York.

And campaign finance watchdogs have filed complaints with the Federal Elections Commission over de Blasio’s use of loosely regulated political groups to help pay for his White House run.

“He keeps taking the wrong lessons from these reprimands – that he can get away with things, rather than stop doing them,” Lerner added. “It’s deeply upsetting and completely objectionable.”

City Hall offered a different spin on the turn of events. “This is not new — it’s been in discussion for years,” said de Blasio spokeswoman Jane Meyer. “There’s nothing more to it.”

Participants in fun run organized by AOC unaware their registration fee was going toward her campaign

A fool and his money…

From Daily Mail: Runners who took part in an event organised by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t know they were donating to her campaign.

The New York Democrat, 29, held a 5k run in Queens on Saturday that she described as ‘a Family Fun Run supporting U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.’

But many of the 400 runners didn’t realize their $30 registration fees were going directly into the lawmaker’s campaign funds, the New York Post reported.

‘We’re getting together for our own health, for our planet’s health … and to fight for the Green New Deal together,’ the freshman Democrat told the participants before they set off.

Supporters jogged through Astoria Park alongside a AOC, who walked the route and believed their money was going to help save the planet. ‘It’s going to help raise awareness and educate people,’ a female runner told The Post. ‘I think it’s really for this particular New Green Deal,’ said Brian Schwartz of Long Island. ‘No question.’

Another woman claimed: ‘It’s to help the environment. To support the Green New Deal. It’s a good cause.’

A notice on AOC’s Facebook page claiming that the run would support ‘U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez & the Green New Deal’ added to the confusion.

However full disclosure was made in the fine print, which participants may have been unaware of. ‘Registration fees are contributions to AOC for Congress,’ reads the legal disclosure on aoc5k.com, which lists the Federal Election Commission rules that donors must follow.

‘It was a campaign fundraiser,’ Ocasio-Cortez spokesman Corbin Trent confirmed that the event was in fact a campaign fundraiser.

198 runners came from the Bronx and from Queens neighborhoods within the 14th congressional district at Saturday’s run. The remaining 200 came from other areas. Children as young as three took part with a $20 fee to join the kids 1k. It is understood participants paid $11,000 in total.

Some participants felt told the New York Post they were felt they were taken in by the misleading advertising. ‘The site says it’s to benefit her environmental plan,’ said one supporter who would not give his name. ‘If it is going to go directly to her campaign they should have said so.’
