    CHICAGO — A detail tucked in a Fox 32 investigative report about Illinois contractors trekking across the border to build a new mansion at Gov. J.B. Pritzker's Wisconsin horse farm raised the eyebrow of somebody who knows how deals get done in America's most corrupt state. The contractor doing construction on J.B. Pritzker's Wisconsin horse farm won a $9 million coronavirus contract that was part of the state's pandemic response. The "dwelling contractor" listed on Wisconsin building permits, Bulley & Andrews, is the same company caught up in the alleged "scheme to defraud" Cook County taxpayers by removing toilets from...

    Gateway Pundit readers may recall a recent story we did that shed light on hundreds, possibly thousands, of Oregon voters who mysteriously had their party changed, most from Republican to Non Affiliated, without their permission, consent or knowledge, effectively denying them the right to vote in their party’s primary and disqualifying them from being Precinct Committee Persons.Today we found out the State Of Oregon is now working with Facebook to delete all mentions of this story. Earlier today Facebook gave The Gateway Pundit a strike for posting this story even though we had 32 statements from different Oregon Republican voters to...
  • "Worse Than Watergate"

    Watergate started with Nixon's staff spying on the rival campaign, remember? The liberal media loves to chant incessantly this or that is "Worse than Watergate". Well, now we have PROOF that what they did was worse than Watergate. Why aren't the Republicans drawing this obvious comparison? We should be repeating this over and over the same way that they do.

    If Beijing doesn't change its policies and address corporate fraud immediately, investors might never touch stocks of Chinese companies again. Beijing may pretend it has the coronavirus pandemic under control and insist there are no new infected cases. This week alone, however, the news of notorious accounting scandals in regard to two U.S.-listed Chinese companies surfaced, exposing yet another sickening event that has unraveled in China.Luckin Coffee is a two and a half-year-old startup coffee chain in China founded with the intention to overtake American coffee chain Starbucks.

    Here's my prediction once again: Bernie has withdrawn as ordered by whoever paid him off. Biden will have some sort of "issue" that will prevent or deter the delegates from nominating him. They will feel compelled (by whom?) to call upon (or even beg) either Hildabeast or Mooch (or pick a dem favorite female)to come out of hiding to "save the day" for them. Or! Biden will choose his VP as directed by whomever and will be unable to fulfill his duties as President IF he were to win.

    “I’m trying to restrain my anger and speak measuredly, but it’s damn hard to do so. (Nancy Pelosi’s latest trial balloon -- an investigation into the President’s handling of the Wuhan virus, was so preposterous it drove me into something I never do -- binge watching old TV serials, in this case “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”) The Wuhan virus spread throughout the world due to the Chinese government’s lies, and the acts of the head of the WHO Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreysesus who came to that position from the violent Ethiopian Communist party and covered up for China...

    There's blood in the water on Capitol Hill and Democrats are bathing in it. North Carolina Senator Richard Burr is hitting back against a story in NPR that detailed how he sold $1.6 million in stocks after receiving a private briefing about how bad the virus was going to get and then writing an op-ed reassuring his constituents that the government was prepared for the pandemic. NPR also said he addressed a group of private donors to brief them on the virus, being considerably more pessimistic than he was in his op-ed. Four other GOP senators -- Georgia's Kelly Loeffler,...

    s tragic as the story of Andrew Gillum‘s involvement in a situation that included the unfortunate collision of drugs, a male escort and a hotel room in Miami Beach may be, history has shown that it doesn’t necessarily spell a political downfall from which he can’t return. While all the details surrounding the suspected crystal meth incident on early Friday morning had yet to be fully sorted out, Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee, announced he would be retreating from public life and entering a rehab facility for help for the “alcohol abuse” and “depression” that he has suffered from...

    There is no doubt that the Coronavirus/Wuhan Virus/Wutang Clan virus or whatever you want or allowed by our media betters to call it, poses a real threat. It will spread, people will manifest symptoms and some will die. As of now, by and large, those who are dying, as with most outbreaks, are the most vulnerable amongst us. That could change and this could be the equivalent of the zombie apocalypse. It can be additionally stated with some certainty, that the Coronavirus has been an emerging issue since November of 2019. Many here and some in the media (named Tucker)...

    Hot Pockets heiress Michelle Janavs has been sentenced to five months in prison for paying $300,000 to get her two daughters into prestigious schools as part of the college bribery scandal. She told the judge that she was ' so very sorry' trying to 'create an unfair advantage' for her children. Prosecutors had asked that she be put away for 21 months. The judge went on the lower end of their request but also imposed two years of supervised release and a fine of $250,000.
  • Maricopa County Assessor Resigns, Under Prosecution for Human Trafficking.

    You’ve successfully conducted adoptions since 2005. But suddenly, in 2019, prosecutors come after you, claiming you are engaging in human trafficking. What drastically changed over 14 years? This is the nightmare that has happened to Paul Petersen, who until January 7 was the Maricopa County Assessor in Arizona. Petersen was pressured into resigning his position after prosecutors got him indicted for bringing women from the Marshall Islands to the U.S. to give birth, then give their babies up for adoption. The prosecution says it’s illegal human trafficking. Prosecutors in Arizona, Utah and Arkansas are seeking federal and state charges against...

    Someone broke into investigative reporter John Solomon’s car parked near the White House the night before the senate impeachment trial began. The thief stole John Solomon’s laptop which contained sensitive information on former Vice President Joe Biden and Ukraine. The break-in, which happened across from the White House’s Eisenhower Executive Office Building, was described as a “professional job” and authorities believe the individual(s) used a sophisticated electronic jamming device to open the car’s lock. “It’s a pretty professional job,” John Solomon told RCI of the break-in, “but it’s probably just a coincidence.” “It was probably just a street criminal searching...

    A lie told often enough becomes the truth. I keep thinking about the above quote whenever anyone claims that the Obama administration was scandal-free. How many more times are we going to hear people make this claim and see it go unchallenged? During an interview on CNN on Friday, former Secretary of State John Kerry, who's in Iowa campaigning with Joe Biden, echoed the oft-repeated claim that the Obama-Biden administration lacked scandals. "I believe Joe Biden is the only person who has the set of relationships around the world, who has had this unbelievable breadth of experience as chairman of...

    Hunter Biden was spotted in LA with his pregnant wife getting into a Porsche said to cost about $92k brand new - and he's still in the middle of a paternity battle with another woman. Hunter Biden is 49 and his pregnant wife, Melissa Cohen, is only 33-years-old, so there's quite an age gap. Oh, and she's pregnant with his other little Biden. Meanwhile, Hunter is still dealing with the paternity results of another woman who just gave birth and it appears the DNA tests say the child's father is Hunter Biden. This woman is only 28-years-old and...

    Will Hunter Biden sink his father’s presidential campaign? The “sleaze factor” is becoming an indelible mark on The Family Biden as a series of revelations keeps unfolding and raising suspicions that Papa Joe’s political weight enabled his (formerly?)  crack-addicted son to reap riches from Ukraine and China while Daddy was forming policy on them. Meanwhile, all on his own, Hunter managed to knock up a stripper and is being sued for child support and facing court proceedings that could force him to disclose his wealth and income. This, while romancing his dead brother’s widow and dumping his wife. Wouldn’t...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was charged with perjury for failing to disclose her business interest in Healthy Holly, LLC, while she served as a Maryland state senator, the state prosecutor’s office said Wednesday. “She is charged with omitting to declare on her financial disclosure statements when she was a Maryland state senator in 2016, her relationship with Healthy Holly, LLC,” Maryland State Prosecutor Charlton Howard said. Charging documents filed in circuit court in Anne Arundel County said Pugh did not disclose her business interest in the company between 2012 and 2016 or her partial ownership of...

    A court hearing has been scheduled for Friday in an unsolved Obama-era scandal involving the brothers hired by House Democrats who were fired when one was identified as “an ongoing and serious risk to the House of Representatives.” That was when a computer server containing evidence had gone “missing,” noted Washington watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit seeking information on the Awan brothers case, “The Awan Brothers IT scandal implicates national security and involves a cover-up by House Democrat leadership and, now, the Deep State DOJ,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. **SNIP** “In a...

    Prince Andrew is still facing the wrath of the British royal family. The 59-year-old was given a “tense” telling off by his father Prince Philip, who told the royal to “take his punishment” because he had endangered “the very fabric of the royal family,” a palace insider told The Telegraph on Thursday. According to the outlet, Andrew was ordered to drive 140 miles to Queen Elizabeth’s country retreat Sandringham for a “showdown” with the Duke of Edinburgh. “It was a tense meeting and Philip told his son he had to take his punishment,” claimed the source. “There was no screaming...

    **SNIP** This comes after a year of resignations and scandal, all centered around the “Healthy Holly” business dealings involving former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh and several board members and executives. The issues began after a report that Pugh filed disclosure forms with incorrection information and did not disclose her position with the UMMS board in city ethics forms, after making a deal in 2011 where she received $500,000 selling her self-published book series to the UMMS. Pugh, who became mayor in 2016, was among a third of the board who had UMMS contracts with their businesses. She resigned from the...

    When President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, a Saudi tycoon and his business associate sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to the U.S. to help pay for the inaugural celebration and get a picture with the president, according to court documents and an analysis of campaign finance records by The Associated Press. U.S. election law prohibits foreign nationals from making those sorts of political contributions. But the donations Sheikh Mohammed Al Rahbani tried to send to Obama's inaugural committee were funneled through a seasoned straw donor, the records and the AP analysis show. That intermediary, Imaad Zuberi, agreed this...
