August 9, 2019

“Saikat Chakrabarti, the chief of staff to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, just resigned. As her top aide, he was also under investigation for campaign finance violations, including the creation of two PACs that seemed to be operating illegally.

Let’s Fix the Scam PAC Problem

Russian and Chinese Political Money Bad; No Matter Which Party Targeted

May 21, 2019

Most Democrats believe the Russians influenced President Trump’s friend and or family with illicit money. Most Republicans believe the Chinese influenced Vice President Biden’s family with illicit money. All Americans should unite in at least accepting the fact that both countries and many others foreign entities are trying to choose who sets American policy and influence that policy so it favors their interest rather than Americans. A year before the Mueller Report was issued outlining Russian influence after issuing many […]
