Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Chief of Staff Ran a $1 Million Slush Fund By Diverting Campaign Cash to His Own Companies
The National Legal and Policy Center, a right-leaning government watchdog group, filed a complaint against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, 33, who set up two PACs and then funneled over $1 million in political donations from the PACs into two of his own private companies. Campaign finance attorneys said there was no way of telling where the political donations went, meaning they could have been pocketed or used by the company to pay for off-the-books campaign operations. If AOC had control over a PAC that was working to get her elected, then she is potentially in very big trouble.
political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s
top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his
own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal
Election Commission on Monday.
The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat
Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat’s chief of staff — run
counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence
of “dark money” in politics.
Chakrabarti’s companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used.

Parents are deciding not to vaccinate their children due to links with autism. Weisman said that a very well-organized and connected group of a small number of folks who are having a huge impact, although only 1.3% of children under two years old are unvaccinated. He said that people have stalked and even threatened to kill Washington state legislators who’ve proposed measures restricting parents from opting out of immunizations for their children. Contrary to mainstream propaganda, many peer-reviewed studies link vaccines to autism – see the link to 157 research papers supporting the vaccine/ autism link below.

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Under Fire for Pressuring His AG to Cut a Deal and Stop Prosecution of a Corporation on Charges of Fraud
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been accused of pressuring his former attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, to cut a deal with SNC-Lavalin, an engineering and construction company that is facing corruption charges, and then retaliating against her by ‘demoting’ her when she refused to play ball. Many are calling for him to resign. SNC-Lavalin is accused of offering $36 million in bribes to Libyan officials between 2001 and 2011, when Muammar Gaddafi was in power. Trudeau interfered on behalf of SNC-Lavalin because the company is headquartered in Quebec, a swing province, and he wants votes for his Liberal Party.
In a nutshell
Mr Trudeau has
been accused of pressuring his former attorney general to cut a deal
with a company facing corruption charges – and retaliating when she
refused to play ball.
The revelations could cost Trudeau the October general election, some pundits say.
former AG, Jody Wilson-Raybould, says Trudeau and his staff spent
months trying to convince her that taking the company to trial would
cost Canadians jobs, and their party votes.
She also says she was
subject to “veiled threats”, which she believes were made good when she
was shuffled out of her department.
Now another minister, Jane Philpott, has quit saying it was “untenable” for her to continue due to “serious concerns” raised by the case.
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Burns Resources While Decrying Global Warming and Claiming the World Will End in 12 Years
The New York Post analyzed Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ (AOC) campaign spending that revealed her hypocrisy in pushing the Green New Deal on Americans while she herself enjoyed using car services instead of the subway that had a stop 1-minute from her headquarters. AOC’s campaign logged 1,049 car service transactions totaling over $23,000 between May 16, 2017, and Dec. 31, 2018, The Post found. Her campaign once booked 26 car-service transactions in a single day.
Patrick Moore, the co-founder of Greenpeace exposed her Green New Deal for failing to plan on how to feed 8 billion people without using fossil fuels. In addition, he criticized her hypocrisy and her excuse of living in the “world as it is” by stating that the world offers the option of trains instead of plans and the subway instead of a taxi.
Mr. Moore, a scientist and author who routinely speaks out against the “eco-fascist” movement, took Ms. Ocasio-Cortez
to task for her proposal to transition the country completely off
fossil fuels in the next 10 years, saying her plan would result in “mass
“Pompous little twit,” he tweeted.
“You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil
fuels, or get food into the cities. Horses? If fossil fuels were banned
every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and
heating. You would bring about mass death.”
“The problem with @AOC is she doesn’t know whether or not she knows what she is talking about,” he wrote. “Makes it harder to think straight.”
Mr. Moore was reacting to a tweet by Ms. Ocasio-Cortez,
a democratic socialist, who defended herself for proposing the Green
New Deal while still using major carbon emitters like airplanes and air
