Scam artist Brian Kolfage of “We Build The Wall” fame has been indicted on tax fraud charges again

He's probably best known as one of the co-conspirators of the Great Wall scam (not you here China) and now he's looking at even more charges from the United States. According to the AP, Brian Kolfage of "We Build The Wall" fame has now been charged with a 2nd tax fraud-related charge for filing an alleged false tax return. That claim surrounds the idea that Kolfage did not disclose to the IRS of the means he gained from scamming people via the wall campaign on his taxes. Officials appear to believe that he bilked far more than what was known from people but it was not disclosed to the appropriate taxation officials. Kolfage was once buddy buddy with none other than white nationalist Steve Bannon both of which have been charged in the state of New York (although it is understo...

Con artist Roger Stone sued over unpaid taxes: DOJ

The DOJ has formally filed a civil suit against Roger Stone for more than $2.1m in unpaid taxes. According to US reports, the suit was filed over the weekend and lead into many other allegations against Stone at this time. It is unclear if Stone has responded to the suit at this time. "The Stones evaded and frustrated the (Internal Revenue Service's) collection efforts" by repeatedly funneling money to a corporate entity they controlled called Drake Ventures, investigators wrote. Stone and his wife then used Drake Ventures account to "fund a lavish lifestyle despite owing nearly $2 million in unpaid taxes, interest and penalties," they wrote. The Stone 's likely are now on the hook for $2m in taxes plus interest.

Matt Gaetz is now claiming that he is a victim of the deep state

Laughably of course that is if the deep state is actually a cabal of undercover authorities and witnesses taking down sex trafficking rings. As the Gaetz investigation heated up over the weekend, the embattles Congressman claimed that alike his GOP counterparts he is a "victim" of the deep state. “I may be a canceled man in some corners,” began his tweet. “I may even be a wanted man by the Deep State,” Gaetz rambled on Twitter. “But I hear the millions of Americans who feel forgotten, canceled, ignored, marginalized and targeted.” Gaetz joins a chorus of Republicans who are falsely acting like right-wing Americans are being trampled on. The FBI has apparently turned his co-conspirator Mr. Greenberg and it is expected that he will fully cooperate in the sex trafficking invest...

A survival guide to visiting America amid a deadly rise in violence and hate

Visiting America can be a right of passage and fun for many people. It's a cultural place with plenty of quirky interesting people; great food spots, and more for visitors to take part in. But in the past year, it is no secret that America has experienced one of the worst spikes in violent crime arguably ever. Shootings are up across the country (especially in places like New York for example) but that's not what we're talking about here. Against the backdrop of anti-Asian bigotry; targeted gay attacks, murders, and now grocery store shootings.... it's understandable if one reconsiders a trip across the pond. You should always probably have some sort of location based app on your phone that way a friend or loved one you're traveling with knows where you are. Some of our favouri...

SAYONARA PUGH

BALTIMORE — A city that has extraordinary history and otherwise rich culture for decades has been overrun by certain members of corrupt political parties, of those, Catherine Pugh of Baltimore is no different. Credit pending This week marked the end to a tumultuous trial involving former fraudulent Mayor Catherine Pugh — who has been convicted of fraud and sentenced to 3 years for using her position for you guessed it fraud. Pugh was infamously forced to resign after reports surfaced that she had initiated fraudulent sales of her apparent children’s book to multiple organizations within Baltimore. Those sales per prosecutors were all a rouse to apparently financially enrich a then struggling campaign and its re-election efforts.

Gun Violence in America: A Stance

I am not trying to be funny at all. I am more of a knife person.  Guns can be used to protect, but they also can be used to ensure a kill. The difference between a gun and a knife is- I could obliterate a mall, school, densely populated area, a house of worship in a matter of seconds, reload and do it all over again. You can’t do that with a knife. I do have to say, had I lived in a world where guns were used to ensure that game killed was so my family could eat or to prevent a threat from happening- I might have a different perspective. My lived experience with guns has been in one of fear. When I was 2 years old I remember having a gun placed to my head in a car. Jewelry rob, money stolen, and my life was the bargaining chip- let me tell you even at 2 years old y...

Trump Administration​ To Cut Billions From Education

The White House under the Trump administration wants a 12% cut in Educational funding, which translates to roughly $7.1 Billion gone. Poof. Vanish. Education no more.  While congress opposes this budget proposal, the Trump administration surely will find a way to get a measure of their wants fulfilled.  This news is quite troubling, as someone who has been greatly fortunate to attend a college the access to the knowledge I’ve acquired is laying an essential framework for my future. I imagine countless other students who would strongly oppose any cuts to education, as it is already it’s tough and to add undue stress to the building blocks of success is heartless. The details on Trumps Administration cut to education proposal includes  -The federal government ...

The Death Penalty Is Revived In The United States of America

Men are playing God...again. The death penalty in America under Attorney General William Barr is strongly being considered. A new execution protocol, replacing the three-drug cocktail previously used in federal executions with the single drug, pentobarbital. The last federal execution was carried out in 2003. While The Supreme Court outlawed state and federal death penalty laws in the 1972 decision Furman v. Georgia it was not an absolute ruling. The federal death penalty was reinstated in 1988, and expanded by Congress in 1994 and is only implemented under those criminals that are deem "the worse of the bunch". Executions have been scheduled for Daniel Lewis Lee, Lezmond Mitchell, Wesley Ira Purkey, Alfred Bourgeois and Dustin Lee Honken between December 2019 and January 2020. What...

This state’s execution powers are entirely out of control

LITTLE ROCK -- The state of Arkansas has so much private execution power, that, there is actually a law on the books that prevents the public from knowing where the state actually gets its execution drugs.   The office of the Governor confirmed today that months after the state executed four men in the period of 8 days (it originally wanted to do 8 executions) another death row inmate is scheduled to die. The new round of execution drugs reportedly expires in 2019, but, because of the unusual law on the books we were unable to confirm from the state where the new round of controversial drugs came from. It was reported last year that U.S states including Arkansas were allegedly getting their execution drugs from overseas. The next to die? John Greene, who,  reportedly suffers from sev...
