Defund the Police Booster Cori Bush Spent a Significant Amount of Money on Private Security

Jul 21, 2021

As the US descends into chaos, the ruling class is having all of their bases covered by turning to private security for basic security functions.

And yes, the primary proponents of the Defund the Police movement are relying on private security to stay safe.

Exhibit A is Congresswoman Cori Bush. The freshman member of The Squad has apparently spent approximately $70,000 on private security per records from the Federal Election Commission (FEC)

According to Henry Rodgers of the Daily Caller, “Bush’s campaign sent $54,120.92 in payments from April 15 to June 28 for ‘security services.’”


The money was sent to a security group named RS&T Security Consulting, per the FEC records released on July 15. In addition, the Democrat’s campaign paid $15,000 to Nathaniel Davis for “security services.” This brought the total amount of money spent on private security to $69,120, according to a Fox News report.

This isn’t the first time that Bush and her fellow members of the Squad have spent hefty sums of money on private security. In an April report, the Daily Caller revealed Bush and her progressive compatriots dropped thousands of dollars of campaign funds on private security.

Consider this a sneak preview of what America will look like when defunding the police becomes a universally accepted public policy. Politicians who advocate for such destructive policies will still have the ability t?o purchase private security services while the everyday person has to put up with intolerable levels of crime and have very little options to combat the inevitable crime waves that are bound to occur.

OT: Maybe I should. Currently sleeping 3 hrs from 9pm-midnight, then 3-4 more from 9am to noon-1pm.

I can live with that. I'll just have to drive some in the wee hours.
(no bladder/prostate problem yet. :-)

My plan was to leave at 5am, if awake. Perhaps I'll leave at 3am, now.
Maybe be at a scenic spot for sunrise photos, and a nap!
Horseshoe Bend?

Sunset in Idaho is 9pm, at this time of yr.

Georgia Voting Official Makes Excuses For Residents Who Illegally Voted in 2020
One must wonder how seriously the Georgia secretary of state takes its fraud investigation if its staffer frames those who violate state law as merely ‘trying to exercise their right to vote.’

This is such a good line, I'll post it here too:

Paul has healed more people in his spare time then Fauci has his whole career.

Well still. One can get sleepy in four hours.

I have a habit of listening to my favorite Bible teacher on my iPad to go to sleep by. I buy his teachings from Audible. I set it to shut off in 45 minutes or so - and I never hear it go off.

The downside is, I do not even dare to listen to them when I'm driving! So I usually stick to some kind of music that has a good beat to it.

BOMBSHELL: Joe Biden Used a Private Email Account to Send Hunter Government Documents

Hillary Clinton’s private email server cast a dark shadow over her 2016 presidential campaign, as it became clear she used the private server to thwart government transparency laws and then went to great lengths to destroy evidence—even that which was under subpoena.

It turns out she wasn’t the only one using a private email.

According to emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, Joe Biden used a private email account to send his son Hunter Biden information from the State Department, according to Just The News, which has reviewed some of the emails.


While some of the emails were personal in nature, “others were political in nature, and still others clearly addressed business matters, often forwarding information coming from senior officials in the White House, the State Department and other government agencies.”

Hunter Biden was serving on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while then-Vice President Biden was the Obama administration’s point man on Ukraine matters. Joe Biden infamously bragged about his role in the firing of Ukraine prosecutor Viktor Shokin back in 2016. Shokin was investigating corruption at Burisma Holdings. Biden told Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko he would withhold a $1 billion loan unless Poroshenko fired Shokin—an indisputable quid pro quo.

It is not yet clear if Biden discussed Burisma or Ukraine matters with Hunter via this private account.

Biden’s private email address was confirmed by a former senior Obama administration official who told Just The News that some administration officials knew of the private address and that he used it from time to time. “I saw it used to communicate with his family and friends or to pass information to them,” the official said.

Current Secretary of State Tony Blinken was also aware of the private email account.

Like Hillary Clinton, Biden’s use of a private email address raises questions about violations of federal law, as any emails involving government business are meant to be preserved for the federal record.

“The Presidential Records Act required Joe Biden to make sure that any of his gmail account emails, including these emails to Hunter Biden, were forwarded to a government account so they could properly be handled by the National Archives,” Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, told Just The News. “No wonder the Obama White House wanted to protect Hillary Clinton from the consequences of [her] email shell game!”


“We might know more beginning next year, when Judicial Watch and the public can begin filing FOIAs for Obama White House emails,” Fitton added.
