Republican Donor Sues GOP for Failing to Repeal Obamacare
A Republican donor in Virginia has filed a lawsuit against the national and Virginia Republican parties, accusing them of fraud and racketeering for raising millions of dollars in donations knowing they wouldn’t be able to repeal ObamaCare.
The Virginian-Pilot reports that Bob Heghmann, a retired attorney in Virginia Beach, filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court on Thursday. The suit blasts the Republican Party, saying it “has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats.”
The lawsuit’s defendants include the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Republican Party of Virginia, as well as Virginia’s two members of the RNC and the chairman of the state Republican Party, John Whitbeck.
As part of his suit, Heghmann argues that the Republican Party does not hold the same protection that members of Congress have against being sued for failing to fulfill campaign promises. He wants the GOP to either threaten to withhold money from members of Congress if they don’t repeal ObamaCare, or return contributions to donors.
“If the candidates don’t deliver, it’s incumbent on the RNC to go to the candidate and say, ‘You can’t do this,’ ” Heghmann said, according to the Pilot.
Heghmann’s suit alleges that both the national and state GOP raised millions of dollars from 2009 to 2016 by promising to repeal ObamaCare, but that Republicans knew they would be unable to repeal the law when former President Obama won reelection in 2012.
Evidence That Attorney General Sessions Is Another Mole in The Trump Administration
As TGP previously reported, the Justice Department released a redacted version of the conversation between then-AG Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton from last summer’s tarmac meeting at Phoenix Intl’ Airport.
Perhaps their conversation about grandchildren and golf has them worried which is why they scrambled to withhold the information from the public citing ‘deliberative process’ privilege. But only it wasn’t former AG Loretta Lynch or former FBI Director James Comey or anyone else in Barack Obama’s criminal circle who redacted these documents—it was Jeff Sessions’ DOJ!
President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton gave his weekly update and discussed the documents he received on the talking points drafted pertaining to the Lynch-Clinton meeting on the tarmac at the Phoenix Airport.
Fitton had this to say about the documents, “The talking points are completely blacked out–you heard that right. They’re blacked out. Again, they weren’t blacked out by Attorney General Lynch, they weren’t blacked out by James Comey, they weren’t blacked out by Barack Obama. They were blacked out by the Justice Department run by Attorney General Sessions, an appointee of President Trump. Isn’t that outrageous?”
Fitton goes on to explain the loophole the government used to redact these documents.
Italy Seizes NGO ‘Rescue’ Ship to Stop Flood of Migrants Seeking Welfare
Massive waves of migrants, nearly 100,000 so far this year, have washed up on the shores of Italy for economic gain. And more than 2,000 have died at sea.
Initially, mass immigration was sold to the European public as aid for Syrian refugees escaping the war in their country, but now Syrian refugees account for only 1.4% of the migrants who journey to Italy. Most asylum seekers are economic migrants who are seeking generous European welfare benefits. Nigerians make up nearly 20% of the arrivals in Italy, followed by the nationals of Eritrea at 13% and then Sudan, Gambia, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Somalia, Mali, Senegal and Bangladesh. Most of these countries are not currently involved in war.
A whopping 85% of asylum requests in Italy are from men, with only 4% from minors.
Many believe that Europe is being invaded with the intention of overwhelming and replacing the native population.
Anti-immigration activists have accused NGO rescue ships and aid workers of collaborating with human traffickers in bringing huge numbers of foreigners to settle in Europe illegally. Italy, with the backing of the EU, is trying to stem the flow of migrants by imposing a code of conduct for NGOs in the Mediterranean that prevents them from entering Libya’s territorial waters and helping migrant boats that are not in distress.
Last week, Italian coastguards seized a humanitarian boat that was suspected of aiding illegal immigration. The boat belongs to a German NGO group, Jugend Rettet, that has refused to sign the code of conduct. Ambrogio Cartosio, a prosecutor in Sicily, said that he had become suspicious of NGOs after noticing some rescue crews seemed to know in advance where to find migrant boats, and were making rescues without informing the Italian coastguard.
Doctors Without Borders, which owns multiple boats, has also refused to sign the code of conduct.
Gefira, an investment group concerned over European demographics, monitored data provided by UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) and reported the following in December 2016:
“NGOs, smugglers, and the mafia, in cahoots with the European Union, have shipped thousands of illegals into Europe under the pretext of rescuing people, assisted by the Italian coast guard which coordinated their activities.
Human traffickers contact the Italian coast guard in advance to receive support and to pick up their dubious cargo. NGO ships are directed to the “rescue spot” even as those to be rescued are still in Libya. The 15 ships that we observed are owned or leased by NGOs have regularly been seen to leave their Italian ports, head south, stop short of reaching the Libyan coast, pick up their human cargo, and take course back 260 miles to Italy even though the port of Zarzis in Tunis is just 60 miles away from the rescue spot.
The organizations in question are: MOAS, Jugend Rettet, Stichting Bootvluchting, Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), Save the Children, Proactiva Open Arms, Sea-Watch.org, Sea-Eye and Life Boat.”
Of the 15 NGO charity rescue boats that are operating in the area, several were owned by Doctors Without Borders, while the owners of the others are unknown.
They estimate that migrants living in hostels cost Italian taxpayers $15,300 per year, while other migrants disappear into the black economy, sleeping rough or living in illegally let and overcrowded flats.
According to the Spectator, human traffickers, who are aided by ‘charity’ rescue ships, netted between an estimated $4 billion to $7.8 billion in 2015 for everything from passports to transport in a rubber dinghy. This black market industry is now deeply entrenched and dangerous.
In conclusion, the original point of Europe opening its borders was to welcome refugees from Syria and other war-torn countries, but most migrants are from countries that are not at war, so the excuse that was used for displacing native Europeans is no longer valid, and it is time to end the charade.
