An 80-year-old man from California was charged for stealing more than $250,000 with fake donation sites for political candidates, prosecutors said.

In a years-long scheme, John Pierre Dupont pretended to raise money for Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, and other Democratic politicians, according to the Department of Justice. Dupont did not donate the money to campaigns, but used it to pay for rent, car insurance, and a Mercedes Benz, prosecutors say. Dupont has been convicted before for bank fraud and money laundering, and spent years in prison. If convicted, he could receive as many as 22 more years behind bars.

Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced today that JOHN PIERRE DUPONT, a/k/a “John Gary Rinaldo,” was arrested this morning and charged with wire fraud and aggravated identity theft for his role in a years-long, nationwide scheme to defraud thousands of donors who believed they were donating to political action committees and political campaigns.  The defendant is expected to be presented this afternoon in the District Court of Arizona.

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said:  “As alleged, John Pierre Dupont operated multiple fake political action committees and falsely claimed to be raising money to support more than a dozen campaigns.  Thousands of donors believed their hard-earned money was being used to support the causes described in solicitations, but in reality, the scam PACs had no operations beyond the fundraising itself, and no funds were used to support candidates.  My Office will continue to ensure that fraudulent fundraising does not pay – indeed, will result in criminal prosecution – by rooting out scam PACs wherever we find them.”

According to the Complaint unsealed today in Manhattan federal court:

From at least in or about 2015 up to and including the present, JOHN PIERRE DUPONT defrauded thousands of donors who believed they were donating to three political action committees established by DUPONT (the “Scam PACs”), or to campaigns the Scam PACs falsely claimed to support.

DUPONT’s scheme resulted in more than $250,000 being donated through websites he controlled and operated, all of which was retained by DUPONT, both to enrich himself personally and to perpetuate the alleged crime.

Open borders advocates are panicking after the arrest of Irieno Mujihca, the leader of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a pro-open borders group funded by globalist financier George Soros that has worked to undermine United States immigration policy and sponsor Central American caravans.

Michelle Malkin wrote on Twitter that “Open Borders Inc. enablers,” are in a state of “panic over reported arrest of Pueblo Sin Fronteras leader Irieno Mujihca”, and another open borders advocate.

Malkin quoted Ruben Figueroa, who considers himself a “Defender of Human Rights of Migrants”. Figueroa wrote a panic-stricken tweet, translated from Spanish,

“#ALERT: The arrest of human rights defenders [who are] pro-migrants, Irineo Mujica and Cristóbal Sánchez, is confirmed.”

Open borders zealots have good reason to be concerned. Big League Politics has reported extensively on Pueblo Sin Fronteras, which translates to People Without Borders, and their connections with the globalist banking system and Soros.

In January, Pueblo Sin Fronteras was instrumental in organizing the Honduran migrant caravan that attempted to illegally cross into the United States. They did so with the help of Soros’s seemingly bottomless checkbook.

Big League Politics reported:

George Soros’ money pays a parent group of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, the official organizer of the illegal immigrant Caravan headed to the U.S.-Mexico border. Soros also funds a Pueblo Sin Fronteras spokeswoman’s employer, according to records obtained by Big League Politics courtesy of independent researcher Brian Humphrey.

The group Centro Sin Fronteras, a parent group to caravan organizer Pueblo Sin Fronteras, is reportedly a “mainstay” of the caravan effort. The Centro has received funding from the George Soros-financed National Immigration Forum.

A Pueblo Sin Fronteras spokeswoman and organizer, Viridiana Vidal, is the Nevada state director for America’s Voice, which has been paid consulting fees by the George Soros-funded Immigrant Voters Win PAC. That Soros-funded PAC also pays salaries for America’s Voice’s top executives.

A shocking document has revealed further proof that Rep Ilahn Omar did indeed marry her brother: The official marriage certificate.

People have claimed British citizen, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, is Omar’s brother, whom she married to gain citizenship so she could run for Congress.

A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar is depicted with Hirsi and their children on Omar’s campaign website here.

The post further notes that Omar married her brother Ahmed Nur Said Elmi in 2009, implying that the latter marriage assisted his entry into the United States. Her brother was a British citizen. “As soon as Ilhan Omar married him,” the post continues, “he started university at her [a]lma mater North Dakota State University where he graduated in 2012. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Minneapolis where he was living in a public housing complex and was later evicted. He then returned to the United Kingdom where he now lives.”

Ilhan Omar was elected to the House of Representatives in 2016 and took her oath on the Quran.

In 2017, several months after Omar’s marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

Omar has staunchly denied any accusations that she married her brother, but she has not provided any proof that Elmi is not her brother.

Was her marrying her brother all part of the plan?

The circumstances surrounding her divorce do not add up. I think he was just a pawn for her to gain legal status..

This is the biggest controversy since Obama’s birth certificate.

Alan Dershowitz is a prominent attorney in the United States with a history of representing both accused and convicted wealthy sex offenders. Some of his high-profile cases include defending convicted billionaire pedophile, Jeffery Epstein and accused Hollywood rapist, Harvey Weinstein.

Dershowitz was a member of Epstein’s legal defense team when he was given a sweetheart deal by then U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta—now Trump’s Labor Secretary—and sentenced to just 13 months in work release despite the mountain of evidence against him.

As TFTP has reported, Epstein is a convicted child molester and sexually abused no less than 40 underage girls. Despite this fact, Acosta protected him while serving as a U.S. Attorney in Florida. Dershowitz played a huge role in the deal.

Now, after multiple revelations have come to light, a new victim has gone public in the Epstein case, filing a sworn affidavit in federal court in New York on Tuesday.

Maria Farmer swore to the court that while she was employed by Epstein, she frequently saw “school-age girls’’ wearing uniforms come into the mansion and go upstairs. Farmer also claimed that she and her then-15-year-old sister were sexually assaulted by Epstein and his companion, Ghislaine Maxwell.

Farmer said she reported the abuse to both the FBI and the NYPD when it occurred in 1996, but neither agencies acted.

“To my knowledge, I was the first person to report Maxwell and Epstein to the FBI. It took a significant amount of bravery for me to make that call because I knew how incredibly powerful and influential both Epstein and Maxwell were, particularly in the art community,’’ she wrote, noting that she was an art student at the time.

Farmer’s affidavit is now part of a move to go after the man who defended Epstein and who is also accused of partaking in the child sex trafficking, Alan Dershowitz.

VAN NUYS — The Los Angeles Police Department’s Van Nuys Division on Friday, March 1, circulated a photo of a human trafficking suspect who frequents the Hollywood and North Hollywood areas and asked for the public’s help in locating him and possible victims.

Vice detectives began an investigation after a woman about 20 years old walked into the Van Nuys station at around 8 p.m. on Feb. 20 to report she had been a victim of human trafficking, according to the LAPD.

She said the suspect had loaned her some money and alleged he forced her into prostitution to repay the loan.

“The suspect knew the victim’s financial struggles and coerced her to continue to work as a prostitute,” according to an LAPD statement. “When she refused, the suspect escalated his aggression, causing the victim to fear for her safety.”

The suspect was described as black, 27 years old and 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weighing about 165 pounds. He has black hair styled in long dreads, brown eyes and tattoos on both arms, according to the LAPD.

Anyone with information about the suspect was asked to call the LAPD’s Van Nuys station at (818) 374-9500.

When Politico Playbook reported Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s recent dinner with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, the California lawmaker’s office declared the meeting was “arranged in consultation with the State Department.

But a State Department official told the newsletter that’s not true.

Feinstein’s office had said it “was in touch with State in advance of the meeting to let them know it was happening and to get an update on U.S.-Iran activity.”

Politico Playbook noted the United States and Iran “are in the middle of a high-wire diplomatic and military staring contest.”

The United States, which has moved additional military resources into the region, says it has intelligence that the Iranians were preparing to attack American interests in the region.

Politico observed it’s “a bit unusual that Feinstein, the former chair and vice chair of the Intelligence Committee and a member of the Senate minority, is dining with the foreign minister of an adversary.”

President Donald Trump has directed the heads of several government agencies to cooperate with Attorney General William Barr’s investigation of the origins of the Russia probe.

In a memo sent out Thursday, Trump also authorized Barr to declassify documents related to the Russia investigation.

The memo grants Barr the authority to “declassify, downgrade, or direct the declassification or downgrading of information or intelligence” related to the Russia probe as he sees fit.

Barr has said that he is investigating whether government agencies improperly surveilled members of the Trump campaign. In testimony to Congress, Barr has asserted that the FBI and other agencies spied on the campaign by using informants and surveillance warrants. 

Trump’s memo directs the heads of several federal agencies, including the CIA, FBI and State Department, to “promptly” provide assistance and information to Barr to complete his review.

“Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

MIAMI (AP) — A surge of asylum-seeking families has been straining cities along the southern U.S. border for months, but now the issue is flowing into cities far from Mexico, where immigrants are being housed in an airplane hangar and rodeo fairgrounds and local authorities are struggling to keep up with the influx.

U.S. immigration officials have eyed spots in states like Florida, Michigan and New York, to help process the migrants before they move on to their destination, which could be anywhere in the U.S.

And in border states, cities that are several hours’ drive from Mexico are already seeing sometimes hundreds of migrants a day.

The situation is leaving local authorities and nonprofits with the task of providing shelter for a night or two, a few meals and travel assistance to help migrants reach their final destinations across the U.S.

The issue erupted in political intrigue last week when Democratic strongholds in Florida balked at plans to send migrants to their counties, conjuring images of homeless migrants on the streets.

But elsewhere, cities and states are quietly making arrangements. New Mexico and Colorado reached agreement to drop off some migrants in Denver. A remote desert town in California has helped hundreds reach shelters for short-term stays.

Police from the Alhambra and West Covina Police Departments arrested Manuel Gallardo, 55, of Apple Valley and Daniel Gonzalez, 21, of Ontario, California. The arrests came during a raid on an Apple Valley auto body repair shop on May 15. The rais also resulted in the discovery of 500 pounds of methamphetamine, the seizure of 11 firearms, $38,000 dollars, and 40 grams of fentanyl. The raid grew out of a two-month multi-agency drug investigation.

Officials said both suspects are believed to be members of a Sinaloa Cartel-connected U.S.-based drug ring. The two men are charged with possession of methamphetamine with the intent to sell, transport for sale purposes, and possession of methamphetamine while in possession of a firearm. Apple Valley is located in the Victor Valley of San Bernardino County — approximately 90 miles northeast of Los Angeles, California.

winning investigative journalist, Sharyl Attkisson has written many stories on
deep state surveillance of American citizens. 
In a recent interview with Mike Huckabee, she revealed the shocking details
of how she herself was spied on by our government. Attkisson said that an
intelligence source told her that she was likely being surveilled, because of
the government watchdog reporting she was doing.

hired intelligence forensic specialists to check all of her devices, cell
phones, tablets and computers.  The intel
experts found a long-term history of surveillance that utilized government spyware.  In addition, government IP addresses were
linked to the spyware. At the time, Attkisson was working for CBS.  The software was designed to break into the
CBS computer system and to monitor Attkissons key strokes. Highly classified
documents were also found planted on her devices. The forensic investigation was
able to identify times and dates of when these surveillance efforts occurred.

asked by Huckabee why there was no public outcry by Attkisson’s media
colleagues over the obvious “shredding of the First Amendment of the Constitution”
with regard to freedom of the press.  Attkisson
postulated that the “shenanigans” of 2016 by the intelligence community wasn’t
actually about their hate for Donald Trump. 
Rather it was a total panic over the possibility of an establishment outsider
coming in and cleaning up these types of intelligence abuses.

When asked
about spying on the Trump campaign and presidency, Attkisson replied that there
were two possibilities.  “Either they
thought Donald Trump and his associates were actually Russian agents, which
Robert Mueller said isn’t true, or that they were entirely misguided and
lacking in judgement, leading our intel agencies and yet distracted by these
crazy tin foil hat…conspiracy theories…that proved to be incorrect, OR there
was corruption involved.”  It remains to
be seen which of these possibilities is the truth.
