Congresswoman Donna Shalala Reveals that She Did Not Disclose Stock Sales After Pelosi Appointed Her to Preside Over Multi-Billion $ Bailouts

Published

Congresswoman Donna Shalala openly admitted that she did not disclose at least 6 stock sales that were made following her election to the U.S. house in 2018 according to a Zerohedge report.

The sales were curiously discussed after Nancy Pelosi appointed Shalala to a committee presiding over hundreds of billions of dollars of bailout money being doled out to corporations via the Wuhan virus relief bill, according to a report from Axios.

Shalala sold some of her stocks in Boeing, Alaska Airlines, Chevron, Conoco, and AMC after winning her congressional race in 2018.

She defended her actions by saying that she made the sales in order to avoid conflicts of interest. However, she did not report the stock sales within 45 days as mandated by the STOCK act. “I did file my disclosure report, so everybody knew what my holdings are. They didn’t know I was unloading the entire portfolio so I could put everything into mutual [funds] basically to avoid any conflict of interest,” she stated, according to The Hill.

Her spokesperson, Carlos Condarco, previously stated that Shalala was not acquainted with the rules. “She had a misunderstanding about the periodic transaction report process and her need to report the sale of these stocks while preparing a blind trust. As a new member with a broker and attorney who were not familiar with the congressional disclosure rules, there was a misunderstanding.”

However, Shalala contradicted her spokesman’s statement:

Look, I knew what the law was. I missed the deadlines.

She added:

 It was my mistake and I take full responsibility. I missed the deadlines. And I have to take responsibility, personal responsibility for doing that. No one else is responsible except for me.

In terms of punishment, Shalala said that she is receptive to whatever is appropriate: “Whatever they think is appropriate. Whether it’s a financial penalty or anything else. I’m really sorry I missed those deadlines in the process of trying to do the right thing.”

Politicians have lately come under fire for selling stocks after attending a private congressional briefing on the Wuhan virus. Georgia Senator Kelly Loeffler was the most notable of these figures who bought and sold roughly $1.4 million in stock right before the market crashed.

According to the Wall Street Journal:

Ms. Loeffler reported that she and her husband bought about $590,000 of stock and sold about $845,000 of stock from Feb. 18 through March 13. If they had held the shares they sold through Monday, the stock would have been valued at $86,000 less than what they sold it for, according to the Journal analysis.

If Congress wants to make wealth transfers more accountable, it needs to completely prohibit elected officials who have sensitive stocks from presiding over bailout commissions.

Better yet, Congress should not be bailing out any companies and let them fail instead.

The White House Walks Back From DACA Deal…. For Now

Published

on

Emerald Robinson, the Newsmax White House Correspondent, reported that White House advisor Jared Kushner is holding meetings on a potential DACA amnesty deal.

She tweeted, “BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.”

For many America First activists, Kushner has played a subversive role in the Trump administration by recommending milquetoast policies that maintain the open border status quo and are soft on crime.

Many speculate that Kushner is largely the individual who is advising President Trump to take a soft approach against the looters rampaging across the country.

Now there are reports that the White House is backing away from this DACA deal per a report from Breitbart News.

However, grassroots immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the co-founder of the Remembrance Project, had choice words for this rumored move by Jared Kushner.

She told BLP:

Donald Trump’s promise to The Remembrance Project’s angel moms, dads, and angel families of ‘Stolen Lives’ was to deport illegal aliens and keep American families safe. No family should suffer the killing of their loved one at the hands of an individual who should not have been in our country in the first place.

Any talks taking place should be about keeping us safe so that our families, businesses and communities can thrive.  It’s heartless for Kushner to even hold talks of amnesty.

Espinoza added:

Kushner, an unelected individual, certainly should not negotiate to keep illegal aliens in our country!  Illegals, by the way who have shown no regard for our laws, and have had ample time to become legal continue to snub our law.
A Kushner Amnesty for illegal alien DACA recipients will ensure that millions of Americans will stay home in November, which will quash President Trump’s re-election.

DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a United States immigration policy where some illegal aliens who were brought to the country as children in order to obtain a renewable two-period of deferred action from deportation and receive eligibility for work permits in the U.S.

Back in 2014, President Barack Obama revealed his intention to broaden DACA provisions to cover even more illegal alien immigrants.

This is in contrast to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens would be granted temporary conditional residency that includes the right to work if they were brought to the United States as minors. If they meet additional qualifications, they would be able to receive permanent residency.

Although these kinds of proposals are different, they’re all a part of a mass migration agenda designed to undermine the Historic American Nation.

Kushner and his ilk believe that offering reasonable compromises will somehow placate the Left.

In reality, such compromises will only further embolden them, given the fact that the voting patterns of these groups overwhelmingly favor the political Left and its many pet projects such as the destruction of the right to bear arms.

Although the DACA threat may be contained for now, as long as Open Borders Inc and its many factions continue operating, there will always be a looming threat of legal migration expansion, amnesty, or backdoor amnesties.

This is why it’s so important that America First patriots score major victories in all branches of government.

The time to engage in political discourse is over. Now, we must force politicians to go on record via roll call votes. From there, we’ll know who’s America First or America Last.
