Social Security Scandal Exposed, Scammer Convicted On 90 Counts Of Taxpayer Theft

In the United States, we work hard to ensure that everyone that lives in our country legally has the same opportunities as another American, In short, everyone has the same freedoms to life, liberty, and pursuing their own happiness.

The only thing that Americans are required to do is to obey the laws, which in turn protect the rights of other fellow citizens. So for the most part, you can rest assured that your life and property will not be stolen by others.

Unfortunately, in the case of Social Security fraud, taxpayers are victims to evil people who choose not only to scam the federal government but their hard-working neighbors who pay into the system.

And this case takes it one level worse: this woman was stealing federal tax dollars by using her deceased grandparents’ Social Security information!

From The Sun Sentinel:

For years after her grandparents died, Myriam Etienne quietly ripped off Social Security by accepting more than $130,000 worth of government benefits intended only for the living.

On Wednesday, jurors took about half an hour to find her guilty of 90 counts of stealing government money.

Etienne, a home health aide and nursing assistant, was immediately taken into custody in federal court in Fort Lauderdale and will remain jailed. She faces up to 10 years in federal prison and fines of up to $250,000 when she is sentenced in April. She also must repay the stolen money

She used some of the cash to make payments on her 2015 BMW X6, pay the mortgage on her North Lauderdale home, withdraw cash from ATMs, buy airline tickets and pay for her own everyday expenses…

What is most unfortunate in this particular case is that the women convicted tried to play the complete victim card in all of this. During the investigation prior to the trial, she spoke fluent English. During the trial, she requested the assistance of a Haitian interpreter.

She went even so far in her testimony to say that she wasn’t even sure if her grandparents were truly, actually dead. As you can see, she was grasping at straws to try and defer her blame on to something or somebody else.

For now, she faces up to 10 years in prison, but is that long enough for her misdeeds? I say she should be in there for at least 25. Perhaps after 25 years, she would finally face up to her crimes.

Sanctuary Governor To Give Illegals Free College Tuition On Citizens’ Dime

The liberal obsession with giving away taxpayers’ money knows no discernible limit.

 

Politicians do this because it works. Handing out money is an excellent tool to use to remind voters for whom they should cast their ballots at the next election. Even if these recipients of government funds are not eligible to vote – yet.

And let’s face it: governments always have money available to buy votes. We see this extensively at the federal level, but states are active participants as well.

In fact, Governor Cuomo of New York is eager to get to the front of the line when it comes to courting the “Dreamers.” His plan? Give all illegal immigrants the same access to a free college education as regular citizens. And leave those regular citizens to pay the bill.

Image result for andrew cuomo

“New York Governor Andrew Cuomo recently revealed his FY 2019 budget proposal, which would extend the state’s free tuition program to illegal immigrant students.

“According to a briefing book, Cuomo’s plan ‘includes legislation to implement the DREAM Act, opening the doors of higher education to thousands of New Yorkers.’”

“‘The DREAM Act will give undocumented students access to the new Excelsior Scholarship, the Tuition Assistance Program, as well as other state-administered scholarship,’ it [Cuomo’s FY ‘19 budget briefing] states, declaring that ‘an investment in young immigrants’ futures is an investment in New York’s future.’”

And the taxpayers’ investment insisted by Gov. Cuomo is to ensure the future of the Democratic Party in New York. If offering rewards to those who are in this country illegally promotes his party’s future, so be it.

This sort of thing illustrates why liberals abhor even the idea of tax cuts. Cutting taxes means letting taxpayers keep more of their money. It also tends to foreclose on vote-buying programs such as this one.

Liberals are not dumb. They know that they must spend ever greater sums to placate the groups that have become dependent on, or benefit from, transfers of wealth.

Whomever said, “The government that robs Peter to pay Paul, can always depend on Paul’s vote,” got it right.

Democrat Triple-Indicted After Robbing $803G From Taxpayers Through Her ‘Non-Profit’

Another day, another Democrat exposed for wrongdoing. This time they are accused of being their own Robin Hoods, pilfering taxpayers to line their own pockets and make themselves look good.
.
Already this year we learned about Democrats stealing cash. It’s not as bad as sexual assault, but it’s ugly nonetheless. What makes it worse than normal stealing is that this Dem was using a non-profit to do her evil.

Non-profits, as you know, are supposed to help people in need. They take donations and taxpayer funds. We assume the money will be used for good. Instead, a huge chunk of cash was stolen.

By a politician who expects her Democrat voters to elect her anyway.

The good news is this time, the crook was indicted on multiple counts.

From Breitbart:

A Democratic congressional candidate in Virginia has been indicted on charges of fraud, embezzlement, and theft for allegedly stealing government funds from a school nutrition program in 2012.

Shaun Brown, 58, denied any wrongdoing during her first appearance in a Norfolk courtroom last week and said after the hearing that she intends to fight the charges.

Prosecutors said Brown fraudulently obtained $803,000 of government funds through her nonprofit organization, which participated in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program. The organization worked with the USDA Summer Food Service Program to provide meals to low-income children on school breaks…

Brown ran against Rep. Scott W. Taylor (R-VA) for Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District in 2016, but she lost to Taylor by 23 points.

Brown announced in July that she intends to launch another congressional bid for that seat in 2018.

Hmm, an indictment against a crooked democrat? How about we repeat that again and again? Especially with that one big Democrat, who lied about her email server and pay-for-play corruption?

That would be nice!

By all means, Ms. Brown, run for that seat again. Taylor doesn’t need to run against a democrat that has a chance to win. A democrat indicted for corruption? Let’s see her try to spin that into something good.

But my guess is she won’t be able to run. It’s hard to mount a political campaign from prison.

So how many more Democrats will be flushed out for embezzlement or sexual harassment? The tally is getting too big to track.

Donald Releases Strict Immigration Rule, Barack’s Illegals Are Leaving In Droves

When Barack Obama was in office, chaos ruled for eight solid years. The progressive administration was very focused on spending taxpayers’ money like it was their own.

 

They were also focused on adding more laws, rules, and regulations on the American people that stilted the economy and limited job growth.

On top of it all, they were laser-focused on ignoring federal laws that would have enforced proper legal and illegal immigration rules. So the Border Patrol under the Obama administration had a very difficult job to undertake.

Knowing that their president wanted illegals to cross the border easily and quickly, Border Patrol agents had their hands tied.

But that is all in the past. With a new, fresh administration that is focused on obeying all immigration laws and representing our U.S. Constitution well, agents now have the power to do what they had signed up for: search, detain, and deport those who break immigration laws.

So although liberals are freaking out over a viral video that shows Border Patrol agents asking passengers for documentation of their proof of citizenship, rest assured that this is well within the confines of federal law. It’s just that Obama ignored the law, while Trump is enforcing it.

From Fox News:

A viral video that shows U.S. Border Patrol agents boarding a Greyhound bus in Florida and running an immigration check has sparked outrage across the internet this week, with many asking whether the agents had a legal right to do so.

It turns out they did.

Many on the bus — and across the internet — were outraged over the seemingly new protocol by the Border Patrol agents, but in reality, it’s a practice that has been employed by the Border Patrol for decades.

While the Fourth Amendment may prohibit unreasonable search and seizure, the Border Patrol has extraconstitutional powers that allow agents to operate immigration checkpoints and conduct spot checks with probable cause within a 100-mile zone that runs along the border of the contiguous United States.

Obama and his Democrats will do just about anything to bring these illegals into the country. They know that America is truly a conservative nation, but they are so desperate for votes and power, they will seek new voters by means of illegals. Sickening.

Thankfully, with a constitutionally-based administration, Border Patrol agents will have a much easier time of doing their job, and doing their job well. Keep up the good work.

Report: Democrats Ready To Drop ‘Dreamers’ Like Hot Potatoes For New Deal

Is the welfare of the “Dreamers” as they are called really a priority for the Democrats? Or are they of more value as potential future Democratic voters?

That’s an unpleasant question to ask. But the disposition of the matter of the Dreamers is a very highly-charged political issue. So the question is appropriate.

It’s also a complicated one. President Trump has ordered the phasing out of DACA. Which means if accommodation is to be made for these illegal aliens, it has to be done soon.

Since the president has also indicated some flexibility on legislation that might benefit the Dreamers, a goal of the Democrats, matters become more complex.

It turns out that at least some Democrats are ready to dump the Dreamers in order to pass other legislation that must be more important to them.

Regardless of where one stands on how to resolve the Dreamer issue, using over a million individuals as political pawns is unacceptable. Unacceptable, but not unexpected. This is Washington we’re dealing with.

Senate Democrats are willing to drop their demand that relief for Dreamers be tied to any long-term budget agreement — a potential boost for spending talks, but one that could face opposition from their House counterparts.

The shift comes in response to the deal struck between Senate leaders Monday to reopen the government and begin debate on an immigration bill next month.

Meanwhile, budget negotiators are expressing optimism that a two-year agreement to lift stiff caps on defense and domestic spending is increasingly within reach.

Budget negotiations necessarily impact the states and districts which senators and congressmen represent. This, by way of where the money is spent.

And that, clearly, is a bigger deal for at least some of the Democrats than the fate of the Dreamers. Again, not much of a surprise here.

Note that the Democrats are not at all united on these issues.

“We’re viewing [immigration and spending] on separate terms because they are on separate paths,” Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Tuesday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s “procedural concession means we’ve got a deadline and a process,” Durbin added. “That to me is a significant step forward. It’s not everything I wanted, that’s for sure, but it’s a step forward.”

But House Democrats have signaled they are not ready to go along with a long-term budget deal without a fix to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that President Donald Trump is ending.

To add to their problems, President Trump has imposed a deadline. And that is something that is hated in Washington since it forces action and responsibility as opposed to delays and obfuscation.

And here it is. You have to love it when politicians feel the same pressure to get things done that the rest of us do on a regular basis.

The division among Democrats is complicating negotiations, as lawmakers in both parties face intense pressure — and a two-week time crunch — to show progress on government funding, immigration and a raft of other issues that have resulted in the government operating on stopgap spending bills since September.

So, at least some Democrats are willing to “throw the Dreamers under the bus” in order to deal with other priorities.

Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), another member of Democratic leadership, said that although she would prefer a deal to protect young undocumented immigrants be part of budget negotiations, the agreement reached with McConnell could make that impossible.

The Kentucky Republican has said the Senate would turn to an immigration bill only if the government is still funded, and few Democrats seem to want another shutdown.

If immigrants, legal or otherwise, are convinced that the Democrats are their champions… If they think Democrats are supporters on whom they can rely… They are about to get one heck of a lesson in power politics.

Trey Gowdy Just Explained Why Adam Schiff Is So Scared of The Memo’s Release [Video]

Elder Patriot -Adam Schiff relentlessly rushed to any cameras that he saw to accuse Donald Trump of “colluding” with Russia from the time Trump was a candidate until last week.  When he had a particularly juicy but unsubstantiated smear he leaked it instead.

Unfortunately for Schiff, Robert Mueller has failed to find even a sliver of evidence to support Schiff’s yearlong jihad of phony innuendos against Trump. 

And now that the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has significant evidence that the Obama administration had defrauded a FISA court, illegally spied on political opponents, and tanked the email case again Hillary Clinton, Schiff is in full panic mode.

Gowdy visited with Fox and Friends earlier today.  He was asked about the memo and why Schiff, who as the ranking Democrat on the committee speaks for his fellow Dems, seems so desperate that the memo be kept in house.

“My Democratic colleagues didn’t want us to find this information, they did everything they could to keep us from finding this information.

“I think it will be embarrassing for Adam Schiff once people realize the extent to which he went to keep them from learning any of this.

“I mean going to court to help Fusion GPS so we can’t find out that they paid for the dossier and that they were working for the DNC. That’s a pretty big step to go to court to try to keep the American people from learning something. So look, if it were up to Adam Schiff, you wouldn’t know about Hillary Clinton’s email, you wouldn’t know about the server, you wouldn’t have known who paid for the dossier, so I find it ironic that he has his own memo now because if it were up to him, we wouldn’t know any of it.”

The mainstream media matrix immediately began attacking HPSCI Chairman, Devin Nunes, accusing him of being a Russian operative as though that would somehow make the evidence in the memo disappear.

Twitter lit up with criticism over the mainstream media’s hypocrisy:

Schiff isn’t the only Democrat on the HPSCI who should be worried. 

Another California Democrat, Eric Swalwell had given the Awan brothers unfettered access to the House computer system including to Top-Secret and classified information.  Some of that information wound up in Pakistani hands around the time that one of our SEAL teams was ambushed and an American hero William “Ryan” Owens was killed.

The fact that not a single Democrat wants to know more is extremely troubling.  It raises questions as to exactly whom do the Democrats represent?  This is not hyperbole.  It’s time to ask the question, if a party were intent on destroying the institutions and societal fabric that once served to make this country great, how would their platform differ from the Dems’?

Though The Memo Is Still Classified, Trey Gowdy Just Let Slip A Few Huge Hints Of The Secrets It Holds [Video]

AJR| Within the last several days we’ve witnessed a more aggressive Republican Party coalescing around the White House, as one revelation after another regarding the unprecedented collusion of rogue FBI agents along with former heads of both the Justice Department and the FBI integrating their efforts and attempting to bring down a duly elected president.

One of those Republicans leading the charge is 53-year old Trey Gowdy, the congressmen from South Carolina’s 4th congressional district.

However Gowdy isn’t simply another politician, more importantly, he’s a constitutional scholar, an attorney and a former prosecutor and a former assistant United States Attorney moreover chaired the United States House Select Committee on events surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi.

Now the congressman from the 4th congressional district in South Carolina has just released his concerns regarding the bombshell information from the FISA secret memo and the people’s right to know, and it’s explosive!

“We need to know a couple of things. Number one we need to know how the world’s premier law enforcement agency managed to lose five months worth of texts. And what is also troubling in the text we do have they’re discussing how to avoid texts being captured and secured. So what is missing is important but also what is there is important,”

“It is manifest bias not just against Trump, but against his kids, against his business interests. There is a text where they hope the Trump Hotel fails. That is a level of bias that you rarely see and you never see from law enforcement officers,”

“What is also troubling to me is this text that Johnny Ratcliffe found last night about this secret society. Now, I have no clue what that means because it was not the phraseology I used. But it’s the day after the election and it’s the same two people that were discussing a little bit later in the text the damage they had done with the Clinton investigation and how they could, quote, fix it and make it right. That is a level of bias that is stunning among law enforcement officers.

Pelosi Votes Against Tax Cut for Us, Pushes $137,000 Tax Cut for Herself

A review of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s financial records appears to suggest that the real reason she voted against the the GOP’s tax reform bill last month was not to protect working class Americans, as she claimed, but to protect her own interests.

According to The Washington Free Beacon, Pelosi’s records show that she owns three multi-million-dollar homes, two of which are in liberal California. Moreover, the combined 2017 property tax bill for these homes was reportedly $137,000.

This brings us to the tax reform bill that the GOP-led House and Senate passed in mid-December and President Donald Trump signed promptly afterward.

That bill, which as a reminder cuts taxes for 90 percent of all Americans, contains a provision that limits the amount of state, local and property taxes the wealthy may deduct to just $10,000.

Because this provision means that the wealthy residents of high-tax liberal states will undoubtedly pay more on their taxes starting in 2018, some rich people have been trying to game the system by prepaying their property taxes.

TRENDING: Welfare Leeches Furious at New Bill

“(S)ome states and localities allow people to prepay their state and local taxes, including property taxes. If they did so this year, people could conceivably deduct them from this year’s taxes,” The Washington Post explained late last year in a guide sheet it prepared for its wealthy readers.

Now guess who decided to pull this exact trick. That’s right, Nancy Pelosi, i.e., the woman who claims to be a champion for working class Americans and constantly rails against the wealthy for allegedly not paying their “fair share.”

“Just days after President Trump signed the sweeping tax bill into law late last month, Pelosi and her husband tried to preserve $64,000 in property tax breaks, known as the state and local taxes (SALT) deductions, for her two California homes,” the Beacon reported.

She accomplished this by prepaying the property taxes on a $7.2 million estate she owns in San Francisco and a $4.0 million residence she owns in Napa.

She also reportedly paid the property taxes on her third multi-million-dollar home, a condo that resides in Washington, D.C.

How convenient.

Perhaps I’m wrong, but judging by Pelosi’s hypocritical attempt to avoid paying taxes on her own property, I’m convinced the only reason she voted against the tax reform bill and continues to lambaste it daily is because of its effect on her wallet.

Every single metric shows that the tax bill is benefiting the majority of Americans in numerous ways, from causing an increase in their wages to putting bonuses in their pockets — and, of course, reducing their taxes.

RELATED: Governor Moonbeam Demands Billions… But “Solution” to Phantom Problem Is Years Away

Yet Pelosi continues to gripe about it daily, falsely deriding the benefits being enjoyed by the American people as “mere crumbs.”

And I’ll tell you exactly why: Because this duplicitous woman, who for the record is reportedly worth more than $100 million, knows that because of Trump’s tax bill, poor little her will have to pay more on her property taxes starting in 2019 (thankfully, she can’t prepay that far out ahead).

Well, let me tell you something, Ms. Pelosi: We see right through you — and in doing so, we also see why only a fool would ever vote to keep you in office.

PS: You are NO champion of the working class, lady.

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you think about House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s disgusting hypocrisy.

STABLE GENIUS: TRUMP PROVES DEMOCRATS DON’T CARE ABOUT DREAMERS

The left likes to pretend they deeply care about immigrants. Now President Trump proves Democrats don’t care about Dreamers.

Many theorized that President Trump’s immigration proposal was very generous. He offered citizenship to 1.8 million illegal immigrants along with another 4 million through chain migration. Why would Trump go against his base to do this? He wanted to expose just how unreasonable the Democrats are even with the generosity of his immigration proposal.

Trump tweeted:

Trump was right again. The Democrats are attacking his plan for immigration despite it legalizing 250% more illegal immigrants than the executive amnesty President Obama did. The left is calling this proposal “racist.”

Per Daily Wire:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) led the charge: “the plan is a campaign to make America white again.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said something similar: Trump was using his plan “as a tool to tear apart our legal immigration system and adopt the wish-list by anti-immigration hardliners.”

You have to be out of your mind to believe this. You can disagree with Trump’s immigration priorities. You can think he’s asking for too much, or that he’s asking for too little. But to suggest that allowing in millions of illegal immigrants and millions more legal immigrants is somehow a reflection of underlying racist is pure demagoguery.

But that’s the only card the Democrats have left to play. Because the sad truth is that the Democrats aren’t interested in making a deal for the DREAMers. They want to leave them languishing in limbo in order to pretend that they are allies. They don’t want any deal that will cut off illegal immigration or lower legal immigration, even if it means protecting DREAMers. That’s what Trump just proved. And that’s what Democrats just helped him prove.

The left is motivated by their narrative that “Trump is racist” more than they are helping the Dreamers. Why wouldn’t they take this offer and give the people they allegedly care about a path to citizenship? Because then they’d be agreeing to something Trump proposed.

SEE YA! FBI DEPUTY DIRECTOR ANDREW MCCABE GONE AFTER DIRECTOR WRAY READS FISA MEMO

On Monday Fox News correspondent Catherine Herridge reported that FBI Director Christopher Wray read the explosive FISA memo on Sunday.

Chad Pegram of Fox News tweeted that Director Wray was able to view the four page memo on the abuse of FISA.

This afternoon the House Intelligence Committee is expected to vote on the release of the explosive FISA memo.

As a result Deputy Director McCabe stepped down. It appears that McCabe is the first victim claimed by the FISA memo.

According to a report he has stepped down today. Per NBC News:

WASHINGTON — FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who has been attacked by President Donald Trump, stepped down Monday, multiple sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.

McCabe will remain on the FBI payroll until he is eligible to retire with full benefits in mid-March, the sources said.

One source said McCabe was exercising his retirement eligibility and characterized his decision as “stepping aside.”
