Democrats Are Supposedly Lining Up to Run Against Trump!

 

According to Democratic operative Jim Messina, Democrats are just lining up to run against President Trump in the next election.
According to Messina, he has spoken with 16 Dems so far willing to throw their hat in the ring.

abcnews.go.com reports: Democratic operative Jim Messina, who headed up former President Obama’s successful 2012 re-election campaign, says he has met with representatives of 16 potential Democratic candidates who want to run against President Donald Trump. But he told ABC News’ “Powerhouse Politics” co-host Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl, even more people want to throw their hat in the ring.

“The good news for Democrats is there are 24 people thinking they could run for president. That’s a historic bench.”

And he’s excited about the Oprah Winfrey buzz.

“There’s a whole bunch of people trying to encourage her to run.”

Leaked: Democrat Plan Creates 8 Million New Voters Overnight

Liberals are willing to do anything for a vote, and they just proved that in spades with their latest move.

It doesn’t matter how much danger they put Americans in, their thirst for power puts the safety of our neighborhoods and cities in danger.

Liberals drag down the economy with their socialist policies and their open doors immigration.

And they’re playing the long game. A couple decades will go by in the blink of an eye. It is worth the wait for liberals to control every branch of government for life.

They have already made every change they need to control America unless Trump rolls it back.

From Breitbart:

“Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 million foreign nationals to the country, with the vast majority deriving from family-based chain migration, where naturalized citizens are allowed to bring their extended family members to the country.

In 2016, the legal and illegal immigrant population reached a record high of 44 million. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.”

James Gimpel is a political scientist at the University of Maryland, College Park. He has studied the impact of immigration on voting patterns, and has released the following findings:

Immigrants, particularly Hispanics and Asians, have policy preferences when it comes to the size and scope of government that are more closely aligned with progressives than with conservatives.

As a result, survey data show a two-to-one party identification with Democrats over Republicans.

By increasing income inequality and adding to the low-income population (e.g. immigrants and their minor children account for one-fourth of those in poverty and one-third of the uninsured) immigration likely makes all voters more supportive of redistributive policies championed by Democrats to support disadvantaged populations.

There is evidence that immigration may cause more Republican-oriented voters to move away from areas of high immigrant settlement leaving behind a more lopsided Democrat majority.

Here’s an additional perspective on this:

President Trump wants the program ended. Of course, the Democrats see potential liberal voters and want the program to continue. Some confused Republicans want the program to continue as well.

What do the American people want?

Chain migration is increasingly unpopular with the American people. As Breitbart News reported, a recent poll by Pulse Opinion Research found that nearly 60 percent of likely voters said they wanted chain migration to end.

The majority of Americans also said in the poll that they wanted to see reductions to current legal immigration levels, where the U.S. admits a little more than 1 million new legal immigrants a year.

A majority of 60 percent of likely voters said they wanted to see legal immigration cut down to 500,000 new immigrants or even less.

Only 27 percent of voters said they wanted current legal immigration levels to remain the same or be increased beyond 1 million new admissions a year.

Once again, the president’s views closely align with those of a majority of Americans. And the left still cannot figure out how he won the election.

The Democrats will have to resort to tactics such as hurling charges of racism at those who oppose chain migration. That is if their plan to use immigrants to increase their representation in elected offices is to succeed.

It’s a pitiful way to gain voters. Why? Because it implies that you cannot convince the current electorate that your party’s ideas and policies have merit. So you bring in others to swing the vote your way.

It’s a tactic Democrats are employing that involves using people for political ends. They must be called out for this.

Pouting Dems Line Up To Boycott Trump’s State Of The Union Speech

Let’s take a snapshot of America right now: We’re winning the war on ISIS, our administration is making great deals both at home and abroad, the job market is rich, taxes are being lowered and the economy is literally soaring to unprecedented heights.

President Trump said he would Make America Great Again and he’s already on the road to success.

But that’s not good enough for Dems. They’d rather interrupt the prosperity for a chance to spark false rage among their loyal sheep…

Hannity reports:

The list of liberal lawmakers planning on attending President Trump’s highly-anticipated ‘State of the Union’ address is dwindling by the day, with more and more Democratic legislators announcing their plans to boycott the annual speech to both houses of Congress.

According to Fox News, Florida Representative Frederica Wilson is the latest Democrat to publicly protest the President’s address, saying, “For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address.”

“I have no doubts that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises and lies,” she added.

Wilson made national headlines last year when she publicly accused President Trump of “disrespecting” the widow of a fallen soldier during a private phone conversation; claiming the Commander-in-Chief didn’t know the slain service member’s name.

Rep. Wilson now joins a growing list of liberal legislators opting to stay home during the President’s address, including Rep. John Lewis and Rep. Earl Blumenauer.

MRC reports:

A growing list of Democrats plan to boycott President Trump’s first State of the Union Address in the wake of his alleged “shithole countries” remark.

So far, House Democrats Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), John Lewis (D-Ga.), Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), and Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) have announced that they will skip the Jan. 30 address, Fox News reports.

It is expected that more announcements are yet to come.

“Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC Friday night. “Someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in? … He doesn’t deserve my attention.”

“The United States of America is represented by the most despicable human being that could possibly ever walk the earth,” she went on. “Not only is he racist, he is an embarrassment for this country.”

Lewis in an interview with MSNBC on Friday similarly condemned Trump as a racist. He said that he cannot in “all good conscience” attend the address “with what [Trump] has said about so many Americans.”

“I just cannot do it. I wouldn’t be honest with myself,” he said.

Rep. Wilson announced on Sunday that she doesn’t plan to attend the event, citing Trump’s “racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations.”

Blumenauer was the first to announce that he would be boycotting the address. He announced his decision Jan. 5 on Twitter, saying that he would rather not listen “to another destructive, divisive speech by Trump.”

All four House Democrats skipped President Trump’s inauguration.

Trump defended himself on Sunday, referring to himself as “the least racist person you will ever interview.”

He has denied ever making the derogatory remark but admitted to using “tough” language during a meeting on immigration at the White House last week.

Democrats Defy Donald, Try To Steal Tax Cut Bonuses Away From 2 Million Americans

 

The calendar may have changed to 2018, but it’s still business as usual in Washington, D.C.

Our nation’s economy is booming, and that’s the direct result of the changing of the guard at the top of the political food chain.

President Donald Trump and members of the GOP have slashed taxes, rolled back regulations, and thrown common sense into the equation.

The direct results have been more money for American workers, increased investments from employers, and an overall sense of optimism that we haven’t seen in years.

Despite that, Democrats are insisting that this is all bad news that simply must end before the wheels fall off of the freight train. And Elizabeth Warren is leading the charge.

From Gateway Pundit:

On Thursday Walmart stores announced one million workers will get bonus earnings thanks to the Trump tax cuts.

That means the total number of Americans receiving Trump tax cut bonuses is now over 2,000,000!

Stuart Varney from FOX Business Network reported:

“As of this morning before we got the Walmart announcement, 1,039,000 Americans were going to get a bonus. Now it’s 2,039,000 Americans will get a bonus. Clearly it’s employees and customers who are getting the benefit as well. By the way, before we got the Walmart announcement we had Waste Management chiming in with $2000 bonuses for 34,000 employees.”

It’s pretty tough to spin bonuses and increased wages as a sign of impending doom, but that’s not stopping the liberal mouthpieces from insisting that it is.

But Democrat leader Elizabeth Warren wants to shut it down.

Warren told Bret Baier on Special Report that Democrats want to change all of this.

Elizabeth Warren: We’ve got to change it. You got to take out the parts that are giant giveaways… It’s a trillion dollars that the Republicans gave away to billionaires and giant corporations.

Back on Earth, the story is vastly different.

Yes, the corporate tax rate has been slashed. And corporations have responded by sharing the wealth with American workers.

Yes, the overwhelming majority of Americans have had their taxes reduced. This will result in more money in their wallets and purses, which in turn will further stimulate the surging economy.

How is this a bad thing?

It’s not, but there is a gigantic benefit to those on the Left jumping up and down with their hair on fire as they claim that it is: The absurdity of liberal thinking is on full display for all to see.

It’s perfect timing with mid-term elections right around the corner. After all, how are the Democrats going to make any headway when one of their chief talking points is that more money for all is a bad thing?

Donald Deletes 13 Billion-Dollar Obama Deal In Two Democrat States

Obama loved to spend cash. The problem? It was your cash!

Democrats’ only plan for government is to spend, spend, spend. That results in higher taxes, hurting jobs and businesses.

With Donald Trump in the White House, all that is changing. He’s bringing the federal government under control. He’s already saved taxpayers billions in slashed regulations, smaller government, and tax cuts.

Now we are learning he just ended a very bad deal. A deal where two liberal states tried to screw the country.

From Conservative Tribune:

While he was in office, former President Barack Obama worked out a $13 billion rail tunnel for two deep-blue Democrat states in which U.S. taxpayers would be paying for half of the bill. Luckily for the American people, President Donald Trump is in office now to put a stop to this overpriced project.

According to Fox News, the plan was supposed to renovate Amtrak tunnels and tracks between New York state and New Jersey that have fallen into disrepair…

However, the issue isn’t whether the repairs should be made. The issue is with who will pay for them.

Under the original plan, the costs would be split up three ways between New York state, New Jersey, and the federal government…

According to Fox, the two states have started to back out of their end of the deal. They now want to make up their payments using loans from the federal government. In other words, pay nothing at all for themselves up front, while the rest of the country picks up the tab for improvements to a transportation system overwhelmingly used by residents of New York, New Jersey and other Northeastern states.

Typical strong-arm tactics from states known for their mafia ties. Not a huge surprise. Liberals in New York and New Jersey behave like mobsters. They tax residents into oblivion. Where that money goes? Not to needed projects, obviously.

Users online raise a good question. Why should people outside of the Northeast flip their bill?

The original deal wasn’t terrible. Trump promised to rebuild infrastructure, after all. But clearly the crooks in NJ and NY wanted to put the entire burden on the federal government. They refused to spend any state money. Hey, that money has to be used to pay off corrupt officials and bribe businesses, right!?

It’s only fair that these states invest in their own infrastructure. Yet under Obama, liberals thought they could get away with murder. Not anymore. Trump will rebuild America’s infrastructure. But it’s going to be fair. Every state will pay their share. Period.

Democrats Come After Trump With Whole New Collusion Story…This Time, They Took it Too Far

Democrats fall among the most conniving group of politicians America has ever come across. I mean, the extents to which they go just to get their way is simply out of this world. 

The Washington Examiner now released a report, stating Democrat Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal commented how President Donald Trump is colluding not with Russia, as some would thus far speculate, but with China as well.

Blumenthal explained that a Chinese bank that rents an office at the Trump Tower in New York is doing so illegally since there is no permission from Congress on it. This, as he states, could ultimately hurt Trump’s political image.

“To be really blunt, an arm of the Chinese government is paying President Trump’s rent for his building, and last year as you all know China granted President Trump 40 trademarks,” the Connecticut Democrat stated via a conference call.

“These approvals of trademarks closely followed the president’s abrupt decision as president to honor the One-China Policy, a reversal of his earlier position,” he said. “Shortly after receiving those trademark registrations, President Trump flip-flopped on labeling China a currency manipulator.”

“As he travels to China, we’re left wondering, Americans are left wondering if President Trump is representing American interests or his own, and which he’s going to put first,” he said.

Blumenthal has been very outspoken about how Trump is violating the Foreign Emoluments Clause and doesn’t have the Congress’ approval to have foreign-government tenants. Aside from the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, the Trump Tower also rents space to the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority.

Blumenthal encouraged over two hundred Democratic lawmakers to sign his lawsuit against Trump, which says “no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.”

Cornell law professor and conservative blogger William Jacobson explained how, “In a rational world, this lawsuit would have zero chance of success,” while former House of Representatives senior legal counsel Michael Stern said Blumenthal’s narrative is quite general, asking, “If it is that easy to receive an ’emolument,’ how is it that this issue has never come up before?”

Blumenthal may have put himself under fire, as People’s Daily newspaper is, interestingly enough, a tenant in the Empire State Building, managed by none else but Blumenthal’s wife.

He even tried justifying this by saying that he and not his wife own parts of the shares.

Then, it became obvious the conference call wasn’t going to end well. Namely, Blumenthal dropped the call before he would get into the Q&A section of the matter.

A moderator on the Constitutional Accountability Center call was not willing to let experts analyze if Blumenthal is a violator of the rule himself.

“The focus of this call is on the president and the lawsuit against him for his patent violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause,” the moderator said.

If this doesn’t scream liberal nonsense to you, then I don’t know what will.

Major Arrests Rocks Democrats!

The entire nation is currently focused on the allegations of sexual misconduct against Republican Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore. Meanwhile, the mainstream media has been completely ignoring the disturbing sexual allegations against a Democratic candidate.

The Gateway Pundit reported that Democrat David Alcon, who is running for the open Second District Congressional Seat in New Mexico, was arrested on November 10 after he stalked a woman he met at a Halloween party for several days. Police arrested Alcon after he texted photos of his genitals and told her he was outside of her apartment.

Police found him at an apartment complex in Albuquerque two weeks after an arrest warrant was issued for him. What he has been doing since the warrant went out is a mystery.

The woman said she met Alcon at a party on October 28, and she began receiving persisting texts from him immediately afterwards. Some of them suggested that he was watching her, while other messages professed his love for her, and one picture was of his genitals.

This comes as the allegations against Moore continue to make headlines around the country. Breitbart reported that the mother of Leigh Corfman, who says that Alabama Senatorial Candidate Roy Moore tried to engage in a sexual encounter with her when she was 14, said that reporters worked to convince her daughter to give an interview about her allegations against Moore. Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, 71, said that her daughter would not have come forward if it weren’t for The Post reporter’s alleged actions.

She did not go to them,” said Wells. “They called her.

They tried to convince her to do it?” the reporter asked.

Yes,” Wells replied in a matter-of-fact tone.

It wasn’t done for politics, you know,” Wells added.  “It was done for personal reasons. And it wouldn’t have been done if the reporters hadn’t contacted my daughter.

When asked why Corfman came forward 38 years after the incident took place, Wells replied, “She was contacted by the reporter. That’s why.

Wells also contradicted a major part of her daughter’s story when she said that Corfman did not have a phone in her bedroom during the period that Moore is reported to have allegedly called Corfman – purportedly on Corfman’s bedroom phone – to arrange at least one encounter.

Moore has denied all of the allegations against him.

These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said.

It’s disturbing that the mainstream media gleefully reports on sexual misconduct claims against Republicans while it stays silent on claims against Democrats. SHARE this story so we can expose David Alcon as the pervert that he is!

Boom! Trump Unloads Gargantuan Executive Order—Obama, Democrats Are Devastated

Despite big promises they’ve made over the years, republicans in Congress have failed to erase the biggest mistake from the Obama administration.

Now, exerting as much executive power as he can, President Trump is taking the matter into his own hands.

He is determined to keep the mistakes of Congress from costing American taxpayers trillions each year.

Obamacare has been a disaster from the very beginning. It has eliminated health care options for millions of Americans. Provider after provider has dropped out of the program. There are some counties in the United States that have one or no options.

Republicans in Congress have said for years that if they get a majority in D.C., they’d repeal the terrible plan. They have it and a conservative President to boot, yet we’ve seen them kill Obamacare repeals twice this year alone.

So now it’s up to President Trump to do something. And with the stroke of a pen, he’s helping Americans get coverage.

From CBS News:

President Trump on Friday announced he is “starting the process” of repealing and replacing Obamacare with his executive order to unilaterally change some aspects of health insurance coverage…

Mr. Trump said the order will cost the federal government “virtually nothing,” and will force insurance companies to start “fighting” to sign people up for care.

“You’ll get such low prices for such great care,” he said.

Mr. Trump didn’t back down on his desire to repeal Obamacare and fulfill a signature campaign promise, despite the GOP-led Congress’ inability to agree on how to do that. Mr. Trump said he is still committed to working with Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare, “once and for all.”

The president’s executive order is intended to make lower-premium plans more widely available.

Mr. Trump has long talked of his desire to make plans available across state lines, something he says this order will do.

The White House views this as an action that will “increase the healthcare choices for millions of Americans, potentially allowing some employers to join together across state lines to offer coverage,” according to a background call before the order’s signing.

The best way to lower the cost of health insurance is through competition. Liberals want to eliminate all insurance by providing single-payer health care. Yet the burden of a tax-funded, universal health care plan would cripple our country.

By making it easier for Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines, the President is creating an environment for competition. Now health insurance companies can compete with each other to win customers. That will lead to lower costs and better features.

Much like any other industry, competition helps drive innovation and improves costs. Companies will want to get new customers across the country. Lowering their premiums and offering better coverage is a sure way to do that.

This is hopefully the first step in ending the nightmare that is Obamacare. Perhaps with the President taking the lead, Congress will do the right thing. Repeal Obamacare and provide legislation for a permanent replacement.

But I won’t hold my breath.

Exclusive: Woman Who Worked for Moore in Her Teens Shakes Left’s Narrative

By now, most of our readers have heard the allegations put forward by The Washington Post against Alabama’s former chief justice and Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore.

The report cited four different women who claimed to have been approached by a 30-something-year-old Moore when they were teenagers in the late 1970s.

The media, Democrats and even a number of establishment Republicans are now demanding that Moore step aside from his Senate run, which would essentially hand the open seat over to his Democrat opponent.

But in an exclusive interview with an executive at Conservative Tribune, a woman in Alabama identified only as “Beth” has shared her account of working with Roy Moore as a teenager, and her story differs quite a bit from the narrative put forward by the liberal media. Beth gave permission for her remarks to be shared and the only changes made were to grammar and punctuation.

“Yes, I absolutely believe (the) Judge is innocent!” Beth declared. “I’ve known him and his family for years. I was a teenager when I first started working in his campaign. And he always honored and respected me and all the others. I always felt safe around him, I never once felt uncomfortable.”

“And even if I didn’t know him personally, I would find it suspicious that these women are just now coming out with this,” she continued. “He’s been running for office for the past 17 years and been a judge for even longer. So why, if this did happen … why didn’t they come out about this before now? They’ve had plenty of chances.”

“I just find it odd with as many times as he has run for office over the past several years none of this has come out,” she added. “I don’t think it is a coincidence that all this is being said one month before the election. Polls were showing Moore way ahead of Jones, then next thing you know all this s*** is coming out.”

Beth explained how she worked closely with Moore during his first campaign to become chief justice, as it was only her and the campaign manager in the Birmingham, Alabama office, with a few others working on the campaign from Gadsden.

“So I worked real close with him,” she said. “He invited all the staff over for cookouts and dinners and stuff at his house. So if he was like that he had plenty of opportunities.”

Beth stated that she also worked on some of his other campaigns for office, though to a lesser extent than before, and noted that she stayed in touch with him and his family for years afterward, even volunteering her time at Moore’s Foundation of Moral Law.

“He even tried to hook me up with one of his lawyers that worked for him,” Beth revealed. “It did not work out, but I was close with them.”

“I went to a play with that guy and the Moore’s and others around Christmas time,” she added. “All this was years ago, but still … I know him enough to know he is not like that.”

As to why it appeared as though Moore had been targeted by a “hit piece” from the liberal media and establishment Republicans, Beth replied, “It’s because he stands up for God and biblical truths and the Constitution. They don’t want him in office because he won’t be in anybody’s pocket or their lap dog.”

This young woman worked for years with Judge Roy Moore — at times with few, if any, other people around. If Moore really was some sort of predatory older man looking to take advantage of innocent and naive teenage girls, he had all of the opportunity to do so with Beth … yet he didn’t.

Beth’s recollection of her time with Moore significantly undercuts the liberal media narrative against the judge, a narrative that was on shaky ground to begin with.

The bulk of the allegations against Moore put forth by The Post were from a woman named Leigh Corfman, who even The Post had to admit had credibility issues stemming from her turbulent background.

But on top of that, an exclusive interview from Breitbart with Corfman’s mother, Nancy Wells, casts even more doubt on her unverifiable story.

Corfman had claimed that she gave Moore her phone number and that he had called her to arrange a date on the phone in her bedroom. But Wells revealed that Corfman didn’t have a phone in her bedroom during that period of time.

Perhaps more troubling is Wells’ statement that Corfman never had any intentions of going public with this story, but was convinced to do so by reporters from the Post, who in their piece acknowledge interviewing Corfman at least six different times, potentially even pressuring her to speak out.

Wells made it abundantly clear that it was only because she had been contacted by reporters that she decided to publicly share her tale, and when asked about a possible motivation for doing so, Wells replied, “It wasn’t done for politics, you know. It was done for personal reasons. And it wouldn’t have been done if the reporters hadn’t contacted my daughter.”

As for the claim that “politics” played no role in her decision to speak out against Moore, some enlightening information uncovered by GotNews about Corfman’s son, Garner Polston, may undermine that claim somewhat.

A quick perusal of Polston’s social media postings revealed that he was proudly anti-Trump, made disparaging remarks about former Alabama Sen. and current Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and made a habit of sharing anti-law enforcement, anti-religion and pro-atheism posts from others.

Obviously, the actions of the son can’t necessarily be pinned on the mother, but she was also said to have made anti-law enforcement comments in the past, such as when police shut down a prom party her son had attended.

As for Judge Roy Moore himself, he has consistently denied the allegations put forward against him, and said they “are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign.”

Moore added, “This garbage is the very definition of fake news and intentional defamation.”

As a final note, more than a few skeptical people have taken note of the timing of this story being dropped, roughly one month ahead of a critical special election and mere days after ballots had been finalized and there was no way Moore could be replaced as the Republican nominee.

Those on the right who are demanding Moore step aside from his candidacy — even as none of the allegations against him can be proven or verified — are essentially demanding that he concede defeat and hand the seat formerly occupied by Sessions to a Democrat that doesn’t represent a majority of Alabama voters.

We have seen this sort of hit job from the liberal media before — who can forget the numerous accusers against then-candidate Donald Trump a month before the election who strangely fell silent weeks later — but the people have grown wise to these kinds of shenanigans and smear pieces, and they don’t work as well as they used to anymore.

On Dec. 12, voters in Alabama will decide whether they believe Moore or his accuser from nearly 40 years ago.

Please share this on Facebook and Twitter so everyone can see what this former young volunteer for Roy Moore’s political campaigns had to say about the allegations of sexual impropriety put forward against him.

Look Who’s Been Indicted, Facing Corruption Charges — Democrats Can’t Believe Their Ears

There seems to be a running joke going around that says, “If a Democrat hasn’t committed a crime in your neighborhood yet, wait a minute.” While that may not be technically right, it calls attention to a growing perception in the American public’s eyes that, although Republicans may be corrupt and not doing what they said they’d do after the election is over, it is the Democrat that is being busted for the really abhorrent crimes of rape, molestation, lascivious behavior, promoting prostitution, supporting pedophiles, evading taxes, running savings and loans scams, selling uranium to the Russians, etc., etc.

The perception is growing because, quite frankly, the headlines seem to indicate that to be a criminal means to belong to the Democrat Party. There’s no two ways about it. While the Fake News Industrial Complex may be attempting to tamp down the occurrences by ignoring literally half of the reports, there’s no denying that the Left has a virtual monopoly on felonious behavior.

Enter 12-time-elected Dawnna Dukes of Texas! This woman is truly a poster child for the Jackass Party’s run of the mill felons. She was just caught coming to work under the influence of Morphine, had missed a full 65% of her shifts at work, and had paid an online psychic in excess of $51K in taxpayer money!

The Gateway Pundit:

Another day, another corrupt Democrat.

Texas Democrat State Rep. Dawnna Dukes is facing corruption charges; her trial is set for October 16th.

Travis County prosecutors claim Dukes showed up to the Capitol impaired, hid a cell phone from investigators and spent over $51,000 on an online psychic.

Dukes apparently used her own money for the psychic; the court documents do not indicate that she used taxpayer money.

Austin-American Statesman reported:

According to the filing, Dukes paid an online psychic $51,348 from December 2014 to January 2016, totaling nearly $1,000 per week.

In other “extraneous acts” listed in the filing, prosecutors say Dukes:

• Was absent for roll call 65 percent of the time during the 2017 legislative regular session, and 36 percent of the time in the special session.
• Responded to a search warrant for her cellphone by providing investigators a phone that did not match the identification number on the phone they had requested
• Was noticeably impaired while trying to perform legislative duties at the Capitol and showed up late to a House Appropriations Committee hearing on March 29, stating, “I know I’m talking a lot. I’m full of morphine and will be headed out of here soon.”
• Agreed to a contract with the Austin school district for her company, DM Dukes and Associates, to provide business evaluations but subcontracted the work to a consulting firm. The district paid Dukes $514,224 from May 2015 to March 2016.
• Arrived late to court settings on June 30 and Aug. 21. Judge Brad Urrutia threatened to hold Dukes in contempt if she does it again.
• Failed to submit in a timely fashion both a campaign finance report before the 2016 election and a 2017 personal financial statement. She was fined $1,000.

When someone is on the hook for that much misconduct, one would believe that the book would be thrown at them. My gut tells me that this woman will smooth things out with the court system and the judge by admitting that she was wrong, promising to go to rehab for “her disease” and ensure that the money that she used will be paid back with community service, perhaps by working in the library for a week or two, straightening up the Dewey Decimal System.

I don’t trust anymore that government officials, no matter how much damage they do to the reputations of their district, will own up and pay the ultimate price for their transgressions. With the way that one scratches the other’s back in the corrupt halls of “justice,” it’s difficult to be a true believer in the American judicial system. I’ve already lost faith in the American system of government.
