Yet another Democrat Congressman is embroiled in a hush fund scandal. This time the lawmaker in question is Democrat Rep. Raul M. Grijalva.

 The Arizona lawmaker arranged a “severance package” in 2015 for a staffer threatening a lawsuit claiming Grijalva was frequently drunk and created a hostile workplace environment.

Washington Times reports:

Rep. Raul M. Grijalva quietly arranged a “severance package” in 2015 for one of his top staffers who threatened a lawsuit claiming the Arizona Democrat was frequently drunk and created a hostile workplace environment, revealing yet another way that lawmakers can use taxpayer dollars to hide their misbehavior on Capitol Hill.

While the Office of Compliance has been the focus of outrage on Capitol Hill for hush-money payouts in sexual harassment cases, the Grijalva payout points to another office that lawmakers can use to sweep accusations under the rug with taxpayer-funded settlements negotiated by the House Employment Counsel, which acts as the attorney for all House offices.

The employment counsel negotiated a deal for taxpayers to give $48,395 — five additional months’ salary — to the female aide, who left her job after three months. She didn’t pursue the hostile workplace complaint further.

“On the advice of House Employment Counsel, I provided a severance package to a former employee who resigned. The severance did not involve the Office of Compliance and at no time was any allegation of sexual harassment made, and no sexual harassment occurred,” Rep. Grijalva stated to The Washington Times.

“Under the terms of the agreement, had there been an allegation of sexual harassment, the employee would have been free to report it. Regrettably, for me to provide any further details on this matter would violate the agreement,” Grijalva added.

 That makes two new Capitol Hill Democrats that are now embroiled in misconduct scandals this week.

Rep. Al Green (D-TX) is under fire following reports he had sex with a drug-addicted staffer and then sued her after she threatened to go public with the encounter. Green is one of the loudest voices on Capitol Hill calling for President Trump to be impeached.

Sex Abuse and Child Rape Is Rampant in Child-Aid Community

February 16, 2018 EuroNews 0

Authorities have been aware for the past 30 years that child-aid workers at the UN engage in sexual abuse, exploitation, and child rape in conflict-crisis areas and in natural disaster zones. Furthermore, it is an ‘open secret’. As law enforcement cracks down on pedophilia in the first world, pedophiles move into the developing world and hide inside of children’s charities to gain access to young victims. [Nothing has been done about it, which means that the problem exists at the top.] […]

After the Florida school shooting, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) reported that Jordan Jereb, leader of a white supremacist group, had said that the suspected shooter was a member of his organization.

Florida: Students Claim There Were Multiple Shooters at the School

February 16, 2018 Jake Morphonios 2

An unidentified female student says there were “definitely three shooters” in the building. She says the students previously had been put through drills, so they believed the real shooting was just another drill. Offscreen, young men who are believed to be students, are heard saying: “They told us about a drill where they were gonna be shooting blanks.” Alexa Miednik, a senior, reported that she was walking with and talking to the suspect, Nikolas Cruz, while she heard shots from another area of the school. She says there must have been other shooters because Cruz did not have a gun. […]

Trump’s Newly-Passed Budget Adds $1-Million Per Minute to National Debt

February 15, 2018 Judge Napolitano 0

Judge Napolitano says that US debt at the end of President Trump’s first term will be $27-TRILLION, because his newly passed budget adds $6-trillion in debt per year, or one-million dollars per minute, above what is collected in taxes. The debt is so high, and the government borrows so much, that 40% of all its present revenue goes to pay for interest on debt for goods and services already consumed. Future generations will be paying for goods and services that were consumed before they were ever born! […]

World War 3 Approaching as Israel, Saudi Arabia, and US Prepare Major Move Against Iran and Syria

February 15, 2018 Jake Morphonios 0

This three-part video may be the most controversial video we have ever featured. Predictably, defenders of the Israeli state will challenge the portrayal of Israel as an aggressor. We are publishing this, not as a condemnation of Israel’s foreign policy, but because the commentator, Jake Morphonios, has been incredibly accurate with predictions of events in the Middle East. Now he is saying the aggressive foreign policy of Israel, the Saudis, and the US acting together is designed to escalate into a full-blown World War that will involve Russia, China, and much of the rest of the world. In view of Jakes’s amazing record of accurate predictions, we believe it would be foolish to ignore him. […]

Israeli Police Recommend Netanyahu Be Indicted for Bribery

The first charge against Netanyahu includes accusations of accepting expensive gifts, and the second charge is that he made a deal for favorable coverage by a major newspaper in exchange for a political favor. Netanyahu responded by saying the police recommendations have no place in democracy. [He is right, based on the understanding of the word democracy. In today’s world, democracy has come to mean elections in which the winners get everything, mob rule through the ballot box with no room for laws that protect the individual against the greed or passion of the majority.] […]

US Justice System Used Tactics Against Opponents That Are Considered Criminal

February 14, 2018 Real News 2

Ross Ulbricht, the creator of the Silk Road, an anonymous website known for selling drugs and using Bitcoin, was arrested and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences plus 40 years! Ulbricht was used to discourage other people from using private cryptocurrency. This interview with his mother is a cry of despair against politicians, prosecutors, and judges, who get away with falsifying evidence, withholding evidence, conspiracy to deny the right to a fair trial, and outright lying in order to punish those who become role models for the use of cryptocurrency instead of government-issued money.
