Corruption.

A Tennessee Democrat State Senator is being charged with stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal healthcare funds to pay for personal use, including a wedding, a honeymoon, and divorce expenses.

Katrina Robinson, who represents a Memphis-area district in the Tennessee Senate, is being charged with wire fraud, embezzlement, and theft in an indictment announced Wednesday. The FBI had executed a search warrant at her home on the same day.

It’s alleged that Robinson used federal money intended to subsidize the Healthcare Institute- a company for which she served as a director- for the aforementioned expenses, as well as buying her daughter a Jeep Cherokee and funding a snow cone business.

The Democratic Senator is maintaining her innocence, and the state legislative Democratic Caucus appears to be standing by her. The group stated in a press release Thursday that her legislative work is “not in question,” with Robinson claiming that “if I were not in the position that I’m in, that if I did not champion the voices, the views and the faces that I represent, that I would not be in this moment right now.”

The Healthcare Institute had received more than $2.2 million in federal healthcare grants from 2015 to 2019. Read the full Department of Justice indictment here.

Robinson could face up to 20 years in federal prison if convicted of the federal corruption charges.

John Podesta “Refused to Concede” In Democratic Election Wargame While Roleplaying as Joe Biden

Prepping for the real thing?

Published

on

A Democratic election simulation program preparing party elites for possible outcomes of the November presidential election has featured a scenario in which Joe Biden, who was roleplayed by Democratic operative John Podesta, will refuse to concede defeat in the election, according to reporting about the event from the New York Times.

The so-called Transition Integrity Project was created with the idea of preparing Democratic Party elites for four different outcomes of the election. One result of the election simulation wargame involved an electoral college simulation in which President Donald Trump secures a strong electoral vote victory while losing the popular vote to Biden, who was played by the former Clinton operative Podesta.

Podesta refused to concede the presidential election in that scenario, citing what he maintained was voter suppression in Wisconsin and Michigan. Podesta, within the confines of the scenario, convinced the governors of the states to send the votes of pro-Biden electors to the House in an attempt to inaugurate Biden as President, despite losing the states.

In the scenario, the House of Representatives recognized Joe Biden as the legitimate President of the United States, while the executive branch of the federal government and the Senate recognized President Trump as the rightful President.

Perhaps most shockingly, in the roleplay scenario Podesta was impersonating Biden in, the Democrat states of California, Washington, and Oregon openly threatened to secede from the United States in the event that President Trump was sworn in for a second term in office, upping the stakes of the constitutional crisis to the point of a potential Second American Civil War with a beginning similar to the first one.

The roleplay of the event ended when organizers determined the American people would look to the military to resolve the situation.

That the Democratic Party elites  would even maintain such a fundamental rejection of an American election as legitimate shows the danger of the extremist neoliberal party.
