The articles a good search provides are endless related to the recent decade of Democrat calls to violence. Does the Democrats proclivity for bloodshed attracts those who advocate murder and mayhem to their side or did they advocate violence in order to gain the support of Hezbollah and its military wing Hamas (the Islamic Resistance) CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood?
Obama gave $33 billion to Iran, the world’s number one sponsor of Hezbollah terror on his way out the White House door. Democrat leadership did nothing to stop him. It was paid in gold and cash. How best to kick back American taxpayer dollars to our socialist democrats or to pay for influence in Hezbollah, one hand washing the other.
If Iran is the number one sponsor of terrorism, what does that make America who is now a huge contributor to that nation? Democrat-led American governments have become an important financial supporter of terror around the world.
This substantive evidence underwrites the Democrat elite’s financial and philosophical support of terror. In fact, they have not shied away from supporting domestic terror. Black Lives Matter has proven their affection for violence in the US. They spent the summer of 2016 inciting riots in cities around the country and warring against police departments over false tales of police brutality. Occupy Wall Street rioters had the support of the attempted mass murderer of US Senators in Alexandria, James Hodgkinson.
So when US officials call for “taking to the streets” (Obama, Loretta Lynch, Tim Kaine) have no doubt as to the violence they are advocating.
As Montgomery County’s watchdog and voice for the forgotten taxpayer, I have on multiple occasions exposed the Democrat Commissioners’ practices of catering to campaign donors, especially in the area of low-income housing.
My hope was that my shining a light on the shaded backroom governing practices of former Commissioner Josh Shapiro would put an end to politics as usual in Montgomery County.
However, since Commissioner (Val) Arkoosh assumed the role of chair of the board in November 2016 the practice of catering to campaign donors continues.
There comes a point where we can no longer dismiss these votes as isolated incidents and must call it what it is: A pattern and practice of raising taxes on county residents while awarding sweetheart deals to campaign donors.
In the past, the awarding of contracts to campaign donors was done mostly through the allocation of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funds. However recently, Commissioner Arkoosh has been doing most of her catering through Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance (LERTA) which gives local taxing authorities the ability to give special tax provisions to a taxpayer for a limited period of time.
This is particularly concerning because Commissioner Arkoosh, with the help of former Commissioner Josh Shapiro who broke his no-tax pledge, has voted to raise taxes on the average county taxpayer every year she has been in office.
When looking at the most recent occurrence and then tracing back to prior votes, the facts speak for themselves:
At the meeting held June 15, 2017, Commissioner Arkoosh voted to award ELON Development Company, a development arm of the Altman Group of Companies, special tax exemptions for a low-income, senior housing project in Norristown.1 The developer, through another arm of the company, Glenside Partners, has made $1,000 in campaign contributions to Commissioner Arkoosh’s campaign committee, 2 $2,500 to the Shapiro/Arkoosh joint campaign account,3 and has given $1,000 to Former Commissioner Josh Shapiro’s campaign committee.4
At the meeting held February 2, 2017, Commissioner Arkoosh voted to award Developer Kevin Silverang special tax exemption for a project in the Borough of Hatboro.5 Kevin Silverang’s wife, Claudia Silverang has donated to $2,500 to the joint Shapiro/Arkoosh campaign account6 and a total of $14,500 to former Commissioner Shapiro’s campaign committee.7
Silverang is also the beneficiary of a sale/leaseback agreement in which the County sold its Human Services Building to Silverang for $17.5 million and then agreed to leaseback the building for $34.5 million in rent over the course of 15 years.8
At the meeting held December 1, 2016, Arkoosh voted to award Westrum Development Co. special tax exemptions as well as a tax forgiveness of $40,000 owed in County taxes (in addition to forgiveness of more than $750,000 in taxes owed to Norristown School District and Municipality).9 At that meeting, Michael Clarke, the Solicitor of the Norristown School Board, urged the Commissioners to vote for the project.10 Michael Clarke has donated $2,500 to Commissioner Arkoosh’s campaign account.11
These most recent examples are in addition to the other deals with donors which I exposed in the past. Along with this press release, I am including my previous releases that explain the catering to campaign contributors I brought to light last year.
Seth Rich Revelations With Comey Gone — Something interesting has happened with the draining of James Comey as FBI director, namely revelations that the feds knew that Seth Rich had been communicating with Wikileaks.
Rich’s killing occurred just two weeks before the Democrat National Convention in Philadelphia and the release of emails showing that Democrat National Committee undermined the Bernie Sanders campaign in favor of Hillary Clinton.
A federal investigator says that 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to Gavin MacFadyen, an American investigative reporter who was director of Wikileaks, before May 21.
He says the FBI has possession of those emails.
Now when are people going to start remembering John Ashe or don’t BLM?
Fear Not Nihilists, Yon Republicans — For any Republican legislator who feels a need for a shot of spine concerning the protests at GOP town halls, it has been conclusively revealed that those causing the disruptions are not their constituents but organized — and often paid — outsiders.
“No, Donny, these men are nihilists, there’s nothing to be afraid of,” as Walter Sobchak would say.
Here’s the audio as obtained by 96.5 KPEL of Lafayette, La.
Uber Banned Again Now That Dems Are Gone — An agreement reached, July 7, between the Philadelphia Parking Authority, which oversees limos and taxis in the city, and transportation network companies such as Uber and Lyft, ends tomorrow, Sept. 30, once again making the popular services illegal in the city.
Clinton Overcharging Donor Credit Cards — The Clinton campaign is making unauthorized charges on donor credit cards, reports Observer.com.
Wells Fargo fraud department has been inundated with calls from low-income Clinton supporters reporting repeated unauthorized charges, says the Observer. The victims are those who agreed to make a one-time small donation through her official campaign website. All the unauthorized charges were less than $100 to avoid triggering the bank’s security protocol.
It’s especially ironic as Mrs. Clinton six days ago joined those seeking to hang Wells Fargo after revelations became public that the bank had created more than two million fake bank and credit card accounts.
There is no honor among thieves.
And be warned, those seeking to donate to Mrs. Clinton.
In other Democrat Party news, it has been revealed that President Barack Obama communicated in 2012—under a redacted pseudonym—with Hillary Clinton on the then Secretary of State’s insecure home email server. Obama had claimed that he hadn’t been aware of the system until media reports in 2014.
Every time I write my review it gets deleted., it’s so weird. Does anyone know where the servers are hosted that contain reviews? Seems to resolve to bathroom.mailserver.bathroom.dc That seems very odd. I’m sure this one will get deleted as well. Oh well.

I had acquired this book for a camping trip I and my family were planning. On the plus side it is a good sized book with over 200 pages, so the entire family was able to benefit from it. Now to the negative. The type of paper used in the printing of this book is so coarse that after a few wipes you are already looking for an alternative, (in drier climates where there is a scarcity of large leaves using this book will get old really fast).. In an emergency this book, backed up with some aloe, would probably suffice. I would still recommend bringing an ample supply of your favorite TT, Wet Wipes or even a bundle of old cut up T shirts.
The reviews are much more interesting and hilarious than the book. The book is pablum bottled as campaign literature, but comes across SOOO BORRRRRRINGLY! Well, let’s see if this review is deleted as fast as Hillary’s e-mails were.
Joe Biden Still Lurks — We broached in May the possibility of Joe Biden being drafted to replace Hillary Clinton as the D candidate for president, but figured the matter became moot after the DNC.
With last night’s (Sept. 7) forum with Matt Lauer we are now not so sure. This question by a Navy aviator should sink any consideration of her by every thinking person who is not part of the government thievery class.
Remember, if Mrs. Clinton has to step down “for health reasons” the entire corrupt Democrat Party has to be held accountable for putting her up in the first place. Joe Biden, Tim Kaine and every other prominent D backed her when it looked like she was the winning horse, and they knew full well how dirty she was and what she had been doing.
Be an American not a partisan. Kill the Democrat Party this Nov. 8 by hitting the R button.
Then start plotting the demise of the Rs on Nov. 9.
Democrat Corruption Pandering Finally Called Out — Donald Trump spoke last night, Aug. 16, in West Bend, Wis., just outside riot-torn Milwaukee.
What he said is worth reading again. It’s worth reading a thousand times, in fact, and making every decent Democrat you know read it:
The other party – the Democratic Party – nominated the personification of special interest corruption. The Democratic Party rigged the nomination to give it to Hillary Clinton, thus giving the soul of their party this year to the special interests.
I am running to listen to your voice, to hear your cries for help. The quiet voices in our society, not the loudest demonstrators, need to have their demands heard.
Jobs. Safety. Opportunity. Fair and equal representation.
We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes, not as individual human beings worthy of a better future. She doesn’t care at all about the hurting people of this country, or the suffering she has caused them.
The African-American community has been taken for granted for decades by the Democratic Party. It’s time to break with the failures of the past – I want to offer Americans a new future.
It is time for rule by the people, not rule by special interests.
Every insider, getting rich off of our broken system, is throwing money at Hillary Clinton.
The hedge fund managers, the Wall Street investors, the professional political class.
Khizr Khan Emotions And Policy — Khizr Khan, a Harvard lawyer and Muslim, made a blistering attack on Donald Trump, July 28, during the Democrat National Convention concerning Trump’s concern about sleeper terrorists entering this country under the guise of Muslim refugees.
“Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims,” he said as wife, Ghazala, stood silently by his side. “He disrespects other minorities, women, judges, even his own party leadership. He vows to build walls and ban us from this country.”
The last sentence implies a permanent ban and isn’t true, but never mind that.
The Khans’ son Humayun lost his life while serving in Iraq in 2004 receiving a Bronze star and Purple Heart for his heroism. The media is trying to tie the label of cowardly chickenhawk on The Donald, which is ironic since by 2004 when young Humayun died he was speaking out against the war, and rather prophetically.
Khan made the point that there are Muslims who can be loyal, good and patriotic Americans.
This is not religious argument. Nobody is talking about vetting people concerning theological beliefs about the nature, or even existence, of God. This is a value argument. Do we have unalienable rights or can someone kill another simply because he disagrees with his belief about the nature of God?
We had better start vetting people as to whether they hold the latter view and keep them from coming here. Further, we had better start teaching those already here who hold this view that they are seriously wrong and that believing murder is OK for religious reasons will not be tolerated.
And with regard to diversity and such, where are the Catholic cathedrals and Baptist churches and Jewish synagogues in Mecca? Maybe we should start pushing that these things be allowed there, hmmm?
If one wants to save this country Trump is the only choice this November no matter how obnoxious your “betters” say he is.
