NY Democrats Stiff Charity, Give Nothing to Kids After Paying for Lavish Parties

Ebenezer Scrooge has nothing on these guys.

An audit of a charity run by several black New York Democratic lawmakers that is supposed to help pay for the education bills for needy inner-city kids has found that no child has received a single dime of the charity’s money in over two years.

Instead of helping kids, the Democrats running the so-called charity organization spent tens of thousands on its annual black-tie gala. The lavish spending included $6,000 on limos and $56 grand on “equipment.” Yet, it appears that for at least two years the group did not dole out a penny to the needy kids, the New York Post reported.

According to the Post:

The New York State Association of Black and Puerto Rican Legislators organizes a “Caucus Weekend” — a series of workshops, concerts and parties — in Albany every February for minority members of the Assembly and the Senate.

The group charges sponsors up to $50,000 for a chance to party with lawmakers at events that have ­included Grammy Award-winning rappers and high-profile speakers such as Hillary Clinton and Jesse Jackson.

The group recently held a swanky, black-tie event on the theme of “changing lives, one scholarship at a time.”

But according to the group’s tax papers, the kids were the last thing on the lawmakers’ minds:

But in the last two years there has been no cash for scholarships, according to two sources — a former lawmaker, and a community organizer who has relied on the money for needy students since just after the group was founded in 1985.

Federal tax filings confirm that in the 2015-16 fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, 2016, the group gave out no educational grants — despite raking in contributions totaling more than $500,000.

Wow.

The paper added: “While students went without scholarships, the lawmakers at Caucus Weekend 2016 spent $128,000 on “food service,” $36,500 on music and $56,494 on ‘equipment rental.’”

Gee, that $56 grand for “equipment rental” would have gone a very long way to help a kid or three!

Naturally, the black legislators suddenly refused to answer public questions over the charity’s lack of charitable giving. Imagine that.

So, now people are wondering why black lawmakers such as State Sen. Leroy Comrie, former state Comptroller Carl McCall, and Assemblywoman Latrice Walker, approved of all the partying without helping any kids?

And… what will happen to these black lawmakers?

Probably not a thing.

After all, it isn’t like they are Republicans, or anything.

While Dems Focus On Impeachment, Trump Flips Another Circuit Court to Conservative Majority

This is what matters. Trump continues to reshape the judiciary.

When it’s all said and done and the public hearings are over, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives will most likely vote in favor of impeaching President Trump. They won’t have any proof he did anything wrong. But that’s not the point. As noted by freshman know-nothing AOC, impeachment is about preventing Trump from winning election next year. The thing is, the Senate is controlled by Republicans. Meaning, there will be a trial and yada yada before POTUS is eventually cleared. What you’re seeing today is just the start of a long process that will go nowhere, eventually leading to a Trump victory in November 2020. Until then, 45 still has to do the work of the people. While the left does everything possible to remove him from office, Trump is continuing to reshape the federal judiciary. From Washington Examiner: With the confirmation of White House attorney Steven Menashi to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, another federal appeals court has a majority of Republican-appointed judges. Menashi, whose nomination was vehemently opposed by Democrats and civil rights groups, was confirmed by the Senate, 51-41. Republican Maine Sen. Susan Collins joined Democrats in opposing the 40-year-old’s nomination. The 2nd Circuit now has seven judges tapped by Republican presidents and six named by Democrats. CONTINUED: The 2nd Circuit is the second federal appeals court Trump has remade to have a majority of judges appointed by GOP presidents. In March, the president flipped the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals with the confirmation of Paul Matey. Trump is also close to shifting the balance of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to majority Republican-appointed judges, with the Senate expected to vote on the nominations of Robert Luck and Barbara Lagoa in the coming days. He has also brought the 9th U.S. Circuit…

MSNBC Host Suggests Republicans ‘Responsible’ for Deaths of Recent School Shooting

They just keep saying the silliest things…

A recent school shooting in Santa Clarita, California left two teenage girls dead. The 16-year-old shooter, Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow, then turned the gun on himself. On Friday night, Berhow died from his injury. This quote from MSNBC’s Katy Tur is rich considering Democrats literally support killing babies, but what can you do? To suggest that Republicans are guilty of school shootings and killing kids holds no water whatsoever and liberals know it. They just don’t care. Nothing about what Democrats stand for makes sense, though. Even worse is that while Tur is speaking about the Santa Clarita incident, she fails to mention that Berhow used a handgun and that 16-year-olds can’t legally own guns. Funny how Tur doesn’t bring up that point. What law would’ve prevented the shooting, Katy? Check this out, via Daily Wire: MSNBC news anchor Katy Tur pressed a guest during her show on Thursday about whether Republican lawmakers should be held responsible for gun deaths amid news of a school shooting that was happening at the time in Santa Clarita, California. “You were just speaking about senators not showing the courage to put their seats at risk to pass common-sense gun reform, background checks, etc.,” Tur asked Ret. Special Agent Jim Cavanaugh with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “Would you go so far as to hold them responsible for the deaths that are continuing, the lives that are continuing to be lost with gun violence?” Cavanaugh responded, “I clearly do. All leaders have a responsibility to act responsibly to help the citizens and it is not responsible to block a debate or to block a vote and that is what’s happening. That is totally irresponsible, that’s not leadership, it shows no leadership integrity, it is done to protect their seats. They don’t want…
