Beto O’Rourke Spent $110,000 Dollars on a Company His Wife Owned

Beto O’Rourke has paid out a total of $110,000 for web development services for his campaign to a company that his wife owned. She allegedly just sold the company. So, now Beto will have to be satisfied with kickbacks. Spending money with a company you own is not necessarily illegal unless you charge more than the going rate for the same services. The name of the company is  Stanton Street Technology Group, and expenditures made from his campaigns to the company include $58,544 during the 2011-12 election cycle, $39,060 during the 2013-14 cycle, $9,290 in the 2015-16 cycle and $32,778 during the 2017-18 cycle, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC).

From The Daily Caller

Either O’Rourke or his wife owned Stanton Street — a small web development firm that O’Rourke founded in 1998 — during the vast majority of those payments. Such payments are legal, so long as the campaign is charged for the actual cost of the services, but ethics watchdogs have criticized the practice as a form of self-dealing.

O’Rourke’s wife, Amy Sanders O’Rourke, took over Stanton Street as the Texas Democrat entered Congress in January 2013. She controlled it until early 2017.

Amy O’Rourke sold her stake in the company on March 31, 2017, according to Beto O’Rourke’s 2017 year-end financial disclosure report. He listed the sale value in the $100,001 to $1 million range.

“Amy will continue to be involved with the company during the transition,” read the blog post. “She plans to spend more time on local initiatives in addition to joining her husband, Senate Candidate and current U.S. Representative Beto O’Rourke, on the campaign trail.”

Beto O’Rourke doubled as both candidate and treasurer during his first congressional campaign in 2011 and 2012, according to FEC records.

Beto for Texas paid the candidate’s own business for services including “consulting” and “social media” during that time, FEC records show.

JUST DISCOVERED: Rod Rosensatein Issued a Third Scope Authorization

We have always thought that Rod Rosenstein had issued two scope memos to Robert Mueller. The second one authorized Mueller to search Paul Manafort’s house. Interestingly, that scope memo was issued after Mueller had already searched the house. We don’t know yet what was in the third scope memo. But, what we need to know is why Rosenstein kept adding to the authorization. My guess is that Mueller kept finding nothing and needed to look elsewhere to bring down the president. This just adds to the belief that this was never a serious investigation and was only implemented to hurt Trump and Republicans.

From The Gateway Pundit

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, authorized Mueller to investigate three areas: “i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; [and] iii) any other matters within the scope of [obstruction of justice laws].”

In the Spring of 2018, it was revealed that Rosenstein penned his second scope memo on August 2nd, 2017 and from what we have seen in the unredacted portions, he authorized Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate allegations that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort “committed a crime or crimes by colluding with Russian government officials with respect to the Russian government’s efforts to interfere with the 2016 election for President of the United States, in violation of United States law,” as well as allegations that Paul Manafort “committed a crime or crimes arising out of payments he received from the Ukrainian government before and during the tenure of President Viktor Yanukovych.”

Now it turns out there is a mysterious third scope memo penned by then-DAG Rod Rosenstein on October 20, 2017, according to Byron York of the Washington Examiner:

Now there is more. The Justice Department has recently allowed members of some congressional committees to view the scope memos, and out of that has come the news that there was a third scope memo to Mueller. Dated October 20, 2017, its contents remain a secret. But its very existence suggests something was going on behind the scenes in the relationship of Mueller and his supervisors at the Justice Department.

Was Mueller heading off in new directions, with Rosenstein belatedly giving him authorization to proceed? Was Mueller proposing to investigate people or events not known when he was originally appointed? Was there something else?

At the moment, the third scope memo, like most of the second scope memo, remains a secret. It is unclear whether all that secrecy is warranted. Perhaps the memos concern matters that are still ongoing that need to remain under wraps. On the other hand, Mueller announced that his investigation into conspiracy and coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign — the core area of his jurisdiction — was over and done. “The office has concluded its investigation into links and coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign,” the Mueller report said.

Burgess Owens: ‘Every Bad Thing That’s Happened to My Race Over the Years’ Goes ‘Right Back to the Democratic Party’

Burgess Owens, retired NFL safety and Super Bowl champion, in a Wednesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak said, “Every bad thing that’s happened to my race over the years, you can go right back to the Democratic Party.”

Give a listen:

Owens testified earlier that day at a congressional hearing on slavery reparations before a House Judiciary subcommittee, where he proffered the idea that the Democratic Party should pay for “all the misery” brought upon black Americans throughout America’s history.

For years Democrats have tried to lay the evils of slavery on “America” as a whole to dilute their own culpability.  It wasn’t America, but the Democratic Party responsible for slavery.  Some would argue that slavery was the law of the land, but a counter-argument to that would be that at no time during the period of slavery were there not Americans who abhorred it, who fought to end the institution, but had no power, because the Democratic Party held all power, until the first Republican president was elected.  At the time of the Civil War, all 4 million slaves were owned by Democrats.

Owens passionately spoke about black role models he knew growing up.  “I was blessed. I grew up during that era in the Deep South during the 1960s, and I had a chance to witness, first-hand, the greatness of my community at a time when we literally led our country in terms of commitment from men to marriage to the entrepreneurial process. We were very Christian-based. We were all about winning, and for us to think about being victims was the biggest insult. It just wouldn’t happen.”

WATCH:

“So I’m blessed that it’s not a hypothetical to me,” added Owens. “I know how it felt. I looked around and saw the examples of great men and women. To be where we are today is an insult to them. My dad, my granddad, my great-grandfather worked too hard for their history to be forgotten. That’s actually what it takes for this socialist-Marxist shadow, and that’s all reparations is. It’s another socialist way of getting people dependent, angry, and divided. But for that to work, they have to first demean and delete our great history, and we can’t let that happen, because what we’ve done together has made our country the greatest in the history of mankind.”

From Breitbart:

Owens characterized the left’s historical interpretations of American history as sowing racial seeds of discord across the nation.

“If I had time [during my testimony before a House Judiciary subcommittee], I could’ve talked about not just black history, but white history together with black history that allowed us to move forward, because we’ve always had a great heart,” said Owens. “That’s who we are. That’s our DNA, and we’ve let the left delete that type of history, then they get away with making a big hole, as if we went from slavery to 1960s when Democrats allowed us to vote, and we were a hapless [and] hopeless race in between waiting for the oppressive white people to break us free. That’s not the case, and we need to make sure our history is told the way it really was.”

Owens just blew people away who were fortunate enough to listen to him speak.  He talked about the American Left’s hostility towards American traditions and values.

“We are talking about black and white issues, obviously. But understand, it’s deeper than that. We have a great country because of our Judeo-Christian values, because we have a nation that literally learns to serve, and we see ourselves inside-out, not outside-in. They’re the enemy against that, that’s the Marxists and socialists who hate God, who hate our way of life, and the way they do that is by stealing our history.”

“The first thing we need to understand is that any race that’s given freedom, opportunity, and hope becomes great,” remarked Owens. “They do great things. Right after the Civil War ended in 1882, the Tuskegee Institute was started by Booker T. Washington. Over the next forty years — and this is something that’s shocking for most people — because of their focus on entrepreneurship, on developing the value of meritocracy, they produced more self-made millionaires than Harvard, Yale, and Princeton combined.”

Owens continued, “If we go through what happened to the black community in the 40s, 50s, and 60s, another key point of what happened is where we turned within ourselves. We didn’t think about the government. We didn’t think about white people helping us out. We built our businesses. We taught our kids. Those who became successful stayed there and reinvested into their communities. We were the fastest growing middle class in our country, and that middle class is the greatest gift of freedom, because they’re the ones that emphasized they’re the ones that just came from the tough times. They wanted that to continue. Once that middle class grows, great things happen.”

“Unfortunately, what’s happened over the last years is we’ve lost the middle class, and we now have a class of elitists,” said Owens of those within the race-hustling industry. “Elitists are the worst thing that could’ve happened to us, it’s the worst thing that’s happened to our country. It’s all about them, and they will use anybody. They use, abuse, and discard. That’s what these black leaders have done the last 50 years as they’ve grown wealthy, and lived the American Dream, lived in gated homes, sent their kids to the best schools possible, and given us crumbs. That’s why we stay dependent on them. That’s what we’re fighting against.”

Owens declared a fair warning, “What happened to the black community is a prototype of what our country will go through if we don’t wake up and understand what we’re up against. We don’t want to happen to the rest of America what’s happened to our black community over the last hundred years. … This is typical of what the black leaders are doing, [they] mention that this was all white people. No, it was the Democratic Party. The whole issue was President Roosevelt — FDR — He made a big deal about how to keep our race down during his administration because the southern Democrats owned him.”

And then, he lowered the boom of truth.  “Every bad thing that’s happened to my race over the years, you can go right back to the Democratic Party. Whether it be Chicago, whether it be Mississippi.”

Owns went on to talk about how black Americans, when the government is off their backs, can do extraordinary things on their own.  “Black Wall Street — for those that don’t know, go back 20 years (it was 1921) — there was a community a little bit outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma,” said Owens. “They had over 60 millionaires. They had theaters and law firms and a transit system. They were doing international business, and they didn’t have any interaction with white people, at all. But what happens when you get the KKK, who hate the progress of blacks, what they did was within 12 hours they destroyed that entire town. We need to make sure we realize who that is. It’s the Democratic Party. It’s the KKK [and] Jim Crow. It’s the segregationists. It’s the same ones right now targeting our babies and our mothers for abortion. These eugenicists — these folks — throughout the last hundred years, have done misery to our race. We need to point them out.

“[We need to] stop kind of putting this whole thing of white people into the big mix,” continued Owens. “We’ve had a lot of great things that we the people have done together from all races. We’ve had some very bad things from the Democratic Party. We separate those two, have them pay us back for the misery they’ve given us, then this conversation goes away.”

Owens said he is against reparations, but he is for restitution, and he believes that not America, but the Democratic Party should be held responsible for all the evils done to black Americans over the years saying, “When I talk of this restitution, there are white people that feel guilty because they’re white. Well, they need to be part of paying us back. Let’s go ahead and have them go ahead and pay into this pot with the Democrats. They can do it to get the guilt off their chests, and we can all move forward. It’s a win-win for everyone involved. I say that in jest.”

God bless anyone who tells the truth.  Amen, Mr. Owens.

Upstate County Clerks in NY Refuse to Issue Driver’s Licences to Illegal Aliens

County clerks in upstate New York are refusing to issue driver’s licenses to illegal aliens in defiance to the newly-passed law recently signed by Gov Cuomo. Upstate and downstate, including NYC, have long been at odds since upstaters practice common sense. Common sense is not common in downstate. Unfortunately, the numbers favor downstate, and with their generous giveaways to the masses who do not pay taxes, they hold the upper hand. Expect quick action to be taken by Albany against the rebelling county clerks. That action will be very swift, and and extremely decisive.

From Breitbart News

A couple of upstate New York county clerks say they will not issue driver’s licenses to illegal aliens following the passage of a new law that allows illegal aliens to obtain the same driver’s licenses that are given to American citizens.

The law, supported by state Democrats and the big business lobby, allows the 725,000 illegal aliens to be eligible for driver’s licenses when they are of age. State officials, though, have said the law will effectively give illegal aliens the ability to vote, as Breitbart News reported.

Erie County, New York Clerk Michael Kearns — who represents the region including Buffalo — has issued a letter to state officials saying he will not give driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.

“I will not be granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants,” Kearns said in the letter.

Kearns wrote that the policy is “inconsistent with federal law,” and he plans to “file a declaratory action in the United States District Court” to challenge the law for being in violation of the Immigration and Reform and Control Act of 1986 which bans employers from hiring illegal aliens over Americans.
