The Congressional Black Caucus spends more money on their lavish lifestyles than they do on the whole purpose of a political action committee.
The whole purpose of the black caucus is to increase the number of African Americans in politics and reaching young voters. Looking at a report from the Washington Free Beacon, it seems that all they really do is spend the money on keeping up lavish lifestyles.
The Congressional Black Caucus PAC (CBC PAC) spends lavishly on upscale resorts and hotels, catering at exclusive restaurants, and on fundraising and Broadway tickets, according to a review of campaign finance records.
[…] The PAC spent hundreds of thousands throughout the 2016 election cycle on administrative expenses that included bills for lavish trips that were paid by the committee.
The committee put $283,100 total towards administrative expenses while $127,000 went towards fundraising purposes. The PAC contributed just $91,000 to federal candidates, according to overall data of the PAC from the Center for Responsive Politics.
This is the same black caucus that refused to allow a Hispanic member of congress to join. They spent 75%+ of their money on overhead, administrative and fundraising expenses including lavish resort spending.
Now name 10 legislative successes that have done anything to improve race relations in the U.S. by the Black Caucus in the past decade…. Anyone? Please comment below… I'm waiting…

Tom Brady Overrules Anti-Flag NFL Players, Fires Shot Heard Loud And Clear By Every Military Family In AmericaBy Manly Man — 11 months ago
New England Patriots QB, Tom Brady, showed how being a true patriot happens on and off the field.
With NFL protesting during the national anthem refusing to die out, Tim Brady decided to show his fellow colleagues that not only should one stand for the anthem, but they should honor and respect the men and women fighting for them to have the privilege of playing football for a living while also making way more money than any military personnel could ever dream of receiving. In an epic show of sportsmanship and military respect, Brady and a fellow player invited and paid for the attendance of 200 navy soldiers to come and watch a pro season game from field side. He also honored them by taking the time to go and personally greet and welcome them on his behalf.
Accroding to 27sports, Brady and teammates – active Navy member Joe Cardona, Matthew Slater, and Chris Hogan invited and donated tickets for 200 military members to the big game against Atlanta last night.
Then Brady and Hogan met them on the field and gave them a proper greeting.

Meanwhile, on the opposite end of patriotism, you will find the anti American Kneelers who claim to be supporting those who feel oppressed while swearing to mean no disrespect to the military, but at the end of the day, anyone who refuses to stand during the national anthem IS behaving in a disrespectful manner whether they mean to or not.

On the monster cans it says “limit 2 per day”. But according to liberals and the socialists its the manufactures fault. No sorry. Somebody could get you hooked on to heroin but at the end of the day you stuck the needle in the arm.
A woman is claiming that her husband's habit of “excessive energy drink consumption” caused him to suffer the brain hemorrhage that ultimately cost him part of his skull.
Brianna, who did not reveal her last name, wrote on Facebook that her husband Austin started consuming the energy drinks “when he started working longer hours and commuting,” AOL reports.
The two were also expecting their first child together when Austin suffered the severe medical complication that his doctors blamed on energy drinks, wrote Brianna in a post that has since been removed from Facebook.

“Being pregnant is supposed to be one of the most amazing journeys you will ever embark on,” Brianna wrote. “You're creating a new life. You are experiencing unconditional love for someone you have not even met.”
Austin's accident happened when Brianna was nine months pregnant, she wrote. She said she went to bed, then woke up to a life-changing scene.
“I still remember my mother in law waking me up that morning. ‘Austin had an accident,’” she said. “All I knew was that my husband was in the hospital. The worst part? I didn't know why.”
Brianna wrote that her husband had suffered a brain hemorrhage, and says doctors blamed it on “excessive energy drink consumption” after running a toxicology screen and ruling out drugs.
Austin was already in surgery by the time Brianna and family arrived at the hospital. It wasn’t until nearly five hours later that she got to see her husband, Brianna wrote.
“The next day was round two of brain surgery. Following this were strokes, seizures, swelling, and more things we weren't prepared for. There was a moment, sitting by his hospital bed, just praying he would be okay, that I knew I would never give up on him. No matter how messy our life would become. I was going to be by his side through all of it.”
Judging by photos shared of Austin and Brianna shared on Endres Photography's Facebook page — which, too, appear to have been removed from the site — doctors had removed part of Austin's skull during his surgeries.
Brianna, meanwhile, was still unsure of her husband's fate. “After two weeks of living in a hospital, wondering if he would survive or be taken from us, [the family] made our way back home. The time had come for me to deliver our baby.”
Austin was still in the hospital when Brianna delivered their baby, but she said that “a beautiful miracle happened as I delivered our son. Austin woke up.”
“I went about a week without seeing him. I thought about him every day. I cried as I looked at my child who looked just like his daddy. When the baby was only a week old, I left him with my in-laws. I knew I needed to see Austin. I needed to tell him that our baby was here,” she said.
In her final paragraph on Facebook, Brianna wrote:
“Our life isn't normal. There are doctors visits and hospital trips- so many that I loose[sic] count. But we are here. Fighting. I wake up every day to take care of our beautiful little boy and my husband. I prepare the meals, do physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy. I help him with personal hygiene. I help him walk. I help him with every aspect of his life. And in between these tasks I take care of our very busy eight month old. It is hard, and I am tired, but we make the most of it. He isn't the same man I fell in love with, but I still fall further everyday, We are fighting to help him recover. To make his life better.”
The couple has declined requests for an interview.

Republicans need to vote as soon as possible as the deceiving left has been discovered trying to demolish the Trump agenda by electing progressive leaders.
Let us flash forward and look at one of Senator Feinstein’s former aids who is actively involved in an organization working to stop the Kavanaugh confirmation.
Page Herwig has a long history of being involved with Obama, Loretta Lynch, and Hillary Clinton.
Even Hillary announced she is supporting a group called Demand Justice which launched a million-dollar campaign run by Feinstein’s former aid Paige Herwig to stop Kavanaugh’s nomination.

This is just the tip of the iceberg with the involvement from the left trying to stop the Kavanaugh confirmation.
The plot has continued to thicken as two key players connected with Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser need to be investigated even further.
Senator Lindsey Graham has stepped up to the table and has asked the best question yet.
We are finally starting to get some answers on the Kavanaugh accuser and his question.
According to 100percentfedup:
Senator Graham: Here is what I want your audience to know. If Miss Ford really did not want to come forward, never intended to come forward, never planned to come forward, why did she pay for a polygraph in August and why did she hire a lawyer in August if she never intended to do what she’s doing?… And who’s paid for it?
Debra Katz, the attorney for Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is vice chair of the Project on Government Oversight (POGO) which has been directly funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
She’s donated about $24K to liberal causes including Moveon.org and had this to say about Trump advisors on Facebook:
“These people are all miscreants. The term ‘basket of deplorables’ is far too generous a description for these people who are now Senior Trump advisors.”
Debra Katz is a known lawyer who specializes in the representation of whistleblowers. How was it that she was hired months ago to represent Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser? Remember that Senator Feinstein claimed that the anonymous person wanted to stay anonymous. If that’s the case, why did this woman secure a lawyer specializing in whistleblower cases months ago?
POGO has a bio on Katz:
Debra Katz is a partner with Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLC, a civil rights law firm based in Washington, D.C. The firm specializes in the representation of whistleblowers. Ms. Katz has represented nuclear, financial services, defense contractor and pharmaceutical whistleblowers for more than 30 years. Ms. Katz received her B.A. degree from Union College in Schenectady, New York and her law degree from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, WI.
