Democrat State Rep. Gets Busted Bribing A State Senator Who Worked As FBI Informant

Shame, shame. That’s a big no no.

In Illinois, you can be an elected lawmaker and a lobbyist at the same time. If that sounds weird to you, that’s because it is weird. Then again, this is mob-ruled, liberal Chicago we’re talking about.

A state lawmaker was recently busted for doing something he shouldn’t have done. And, of course, he is a Democrat. The odds were pretty high on that one. From American Mirror:

Another influential Chicago Democrat faces criminal charges for using his office to rig the political system and scam the public.

Chicago State Rep. Luis Arroyo told an unnamed state senator “this is the jackpot” when he slipped him a check for $2,500, with the promise of more each month for up to a year, in exchange for support on gambling legislation that benefited his lobbying client, the Associated Press reports.

The senator was working as an informant with the FBI.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot wants illegal aliens to know that they are welcome in the Windy City, because who needs laws?

Lori’s tweets:

THREAD 1/ We are all aware of the threat from President Trump regarding raids by ICE, and in response, Chicago has taken concrete steps to support our immigrant communities.

2/ I have directed – and Superintendent Johnson has confirmed – that CPD has terminated ICE’s access to CPD’s databases related to federal immigration enforcement activities.

3/ I have also personally spoken with ICE leadership in Chicago and voiced my strong objection to any such raids. Further, I reiterated that CPD will not cooperate with or facilitate any ICE enforcement actions.

4/ Chicago will always be a welcoming city and a champion for the rights of our immigrant and refugee communities, and I encourage any resident in need of legal aid to contact the National Immigrant Justice Center (@NIJC). More info here:

Check out Ted Cruz’s factual argument against gun control, then sit through the Windy City’s mayor jibber-jabber while saying nothing helpful…

Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer. Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates. Let’s protect our citizens.

Here comes Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot…

60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside IL—mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation. Keep our name out of your mouth.

Save conservative media!

Ocasio-Cortez Says Democrat Party Is A ‘Center-Conservative Party’ — Not A ‘Left Party’

Yes, she actually said these words…

Of all the absolutely ridiculous thoughts that come from the lips of freshman Democrat Socialist lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), this sentence might just take the cake. Actually, it might just take the entire bakery. It’s as if AOC literally said the sun is the moon and the moon doesn’t exist. It is that stunning and blatantly ignorant. You know, it’s almost as if AOC legitimately has no clue about what she speaks. I wonder how liberals will feel about this. See for yourself, via Washington Examiner: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the Democratic Party leans to the right of the political center. She said, “We don’t have a left party in the United States. The Democratic Party is not a left party. The Democratic Party is a center or center-conservative party.” AOC added, “We can’t even get a floor vote on Medicare for All, not even a floor vote that gets voted down. So, this is not a left party. There are a lot of true believers that we can ‘capitalism’ our way out of poverty in the Democratic Party. If anything, that’s probably the majority.” Reactions: https://twitter.com/bpjauburn/status/1219422563883016198?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219422563883016198&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/ericsaid691/status/1219420015402856448?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219420015402856448&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/thecheesefeed/status/1219397437837545473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219397437837545473&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/kalel1324/status/1219376539583774723?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219376539583774723&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/MrSagacious/status/1219432046021500929?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219432046021500929&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/NickKnox8/status/1219385743623249920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219385743623249920&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F https://twitter.com/mckenney1971/status/1219430553113501696?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219430553113501696&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F01%2F20%2Faoc-democrats-are-center-conservative-and-believe-you-can-capitalism-your-way-out-of-poverty%2F President Ocasio-Cortez, anyone? Apparently, the far-left radical thinks about the idea. Could there be anything scarier for America? During a podcast interview, AOC admitted she thinks about running for POTUS “every once in a while.” AOC spoke with Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast Sunday about a variety of issues, and the conversation eventually turned to her thoughts on the 2020 election and her own sights for higher office. AOC: “I don’t know, I really don’t know,” the freshman congresswoman said of her next steps in politics. “I think about it every once in a while but […] this is pretty hard already.” LISTEN: https://twitter.com/SkullduggeryPod/status/1117777587110129671?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1117777587110129671&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.theamericanmirror.com%2Focasio-cortez-every-once-in-a-while-thinks-about-running-for-president-says-biden-doesnt-particularly-animate-her%2F H/T: Twitchy

Jim Jordan & 7 Other House Conservatives Named to Trump’s Impeachment Team [Details]

How will Dems respond to this?

John Salvatore

Reps. Jim Jordan (OH) and Lee Zeldin (NY) are two of the seven House Republicans appointed to President Trump’s impeachment team. Who are the other five? Let’s get into it, via The Hill: The White House announced Monday that President Trump appointed several prominent Republican House members to advise his impeachment defense team ahead of the Senate trial set to begin this week. GOP Reps. Jim Jordan (Ohio), John Ratcliffe Texas), Mike Johnson (La.), Mark Meadows (N.C.), Debbie Lesko (Ariz.), Lee Zeldin (N.Y.), Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) and Doug Collins are set to play leading roles. Continued: A statement from the White House said the lawmakers “have provided guidance to the White House team, which was prohibited from participating in the proceedings concocted by Democrats in the House of Representatives” throughout the House proceedings and would continue to do so in the Senate. At this rate, no matter how hard the left tries, it would appear Trump has 2020 all but in the bag. Great for America, bad for the left. But what’s bad in the eyes of the left is usually good for the left – they just can’t see it. Liberals. SMH. BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F WATCH: Democrat Rep. Al Green says the impeachment of @realDonaldTrump is needed “to deal with slavery.” MSNBC’s Alex Witt “mmhhhmms” throughout the clip in agreement. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1203420159639277573?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203420159639277573&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fdemocrat-congressman-al-green-trump-must-be-impeached-to-deal-with-slavery Let them keep thinking Trump should be impeached. Let’s see how that plays out for them. As we’ve seen so far, it’s not going well. In fact, it’s going very poorly.
