A former advisor to Barack Obama was just arrested on some major charges. Former White House education advisor Seth Andrew faces charges related to a plot to steal nearly $220,000 from a public charter school network he founded.

Andrew was arrested in hi $2 million New York City home, and the charges seem pretty damning. CNBC reports:

The founder of Democracy Prep Public Schools is accused of using more than half of the allegedly stolen money from that network to maintain a bank account minimum that gave him a more favorable interest rate for a mortgage on his and Zak’s Manhattan residence. Zak was not charged in the case.

Prosecutors said Andrew in 2019 — more than two years after severing ties with Democracy Prep — looted a series of escrow accounts he had previously set up for individual schools within Democracy Prep’s network, and then used their funds to open a business account in the name of one of the schools at a bank.

A surveillance photo from a bank, which was included in a criminal complaint, show Andrew at that bank, where he was closing one of the schools’ escrow account there in October 2019.

Andrew is seen in that photo wearing a yellow hat, which an FBI agent noted in the complaint “is essentially Andrew’s ‘calling card,’” as it signifies a connection to Democracy Prep “and his leadership of it.”

He is charged with wire fraud, money laundering and making false statements to a financial institution, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, which is prosecuting the case. The charges carry a maximum possible prison term of 30 years, but Andrew is almost certain to get far less time than that if convicted, given federal sentencing guidelines.

“Andrew is not only alleged to have stolen the schools’ money but also to have used the stolen funds to obtain a savings on a mortgage for a multimillion-dollar Manhattan apartment,” U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss says. “Seth Andrew abused his position as a founder of a charter school network to steal from the very same schools he helped create.”

This is just the latest example of corruption coming out of the Obama Administration. The people the former President surrounded himself with are all horrible swamp creatures. They’re not alone in government either — and it’s time to drain that swamp.

If the Biden presidency seems a lot like the Obama presidency, there may be a reason for that. According to a Fox News host, President* Biden isn’t in charge. While many have speculated that Vice President Kamala Harris is secretly running the show, one Fox host says her sources have told her who is really running things — and he’s a man who is not eligible to be President.

On Sunday Morning Futures, host Maria Bartiromo revealed who, according to her sources, is really running Washington. “He almost wants to prove to Obama that I can do what you couldn’t do when it comes to pandering to the liberal base and implementing progressive policy,” guest Charlie Kirk said during the segment.

“Ah!” Bartiromo replied. “That’s what it is. I know he’s on the phone all the time with Obama and I’m hearing that he’s running things from behind the scenes.”

She didn’t say who her sources are or what exactly they revealed past that. However, if this is true, it is a flagrant violation of our constitution, which bars someone from serving as President past two terms in office. It doesn’t specifically say anything about a former President whispering orders in the ear of the current President, but one can assume that this is not allowed either.

The Democrat Party is corrupt, and it’s not unknown for them to take orders from Obama in general. As Barack Obama’s former right-hand-man, it seems likely that Biden would listen and do as he is told. After all, his cognitive faculties are in question for a reason.

Watch it below:

On Tuesday, a deranged individual opened fire at King Sooper’s grocery store. Ahmad Al-Issa murdered 10 people, including a 51-year-old police officer during the attack. According to reports, the shooter was sympathetic to terrorist organization ISIS and hated President Donald Trump.

While liberals and the media enjoy blaming shootings on President Trump and conservatives, it is impossible this time, as Al-Issa’s Facebook page reveals that he hates President Trump, whom he refers to as a “d*ck” who “inherited a growing economy” and a low unemployment rate yet “won because of racism.”

Since the shooter is a Middle-Eastern man who hates President Trump, naturally Barack Obama spoke out against terrorism committed by those who support ISIS — right? Wrong. He blamed white supremacy, misogyny, and other ridiculous things.

“It is long past time for those with the power to fight this epidemic of gun violence to do so,” Obama said. “It will take time to root out the disaffection, racism and misogyny that fuels so many of these senseless acts of violence.”

“It’s time for leaders everywhere to listen to the American people when they say enough is enough – because this is a normal we can no longer afford,” Obama says — something that sounds very much like President Trump pointing out that we should listen to Americans when they speak up. President Trump, of course, was “canceled” by social media companies because he said similar things in the aftermath of the January 6 Capitol incident.

Al-Issa has been charged with 10 counts of murder, but liberals don’t care about him. They don’t care about the people who died. They aren’t interested in solving the mental health issues behind every single mass murder. They just want to use his actions to push gun control.

Whether a person is gay or not doesn’t matter. As you probably noticed during the past two election cycles, President Trump managed to amass a lot of support in the LGBTQ community. Let’s be clear: that support was higher for Democrats, especially Barack Obama when he was running for re-election in 2012 and announced for purely political purposes that he supports same-sex marriage. But many forget that Obama’s stance shifed suddenly when he needed the poll numbers. Now, a new book reveals that his stance hasn’t shifted all that much — at least behind the scenes.

“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.” This quote isn’t from Pat Robertson. It’s not from Lindsey Graham. It’s not from any conservative. These words were spoken by Barack Obama in 2008. In 1996, however, when asked about his stance on gay marriage by a Chicago-area gay newspaper, he said, “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.” In a later questionnaire for the same newspaper, he said “Undecided” in 1998. Later, he said he favored civil unions, but not marriage. “I am a fierce supporter of domestic-partnership and civil-union laws. I am not a supporter of gay marriage…” he said in 2004 before settling back on “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman,” which he repeated during an appearance on MTV. As you can see, Obama’s belief on the subject shifts seemingly constantly — and his loyalty to the gay community with it.

Now, having apparently settled on “gay marriage is fine” for political purposes, one might expect Obama to support a gay man for President. After all, if he’s good enough to get married, he’s good enough to be President, right? Not according to Obama. “Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency,” by the Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen, show that Obama was still the same old homophobic bigot he’s always been in 2019.

During a meeting with elite black donors, Obama shared his thoughts on Pete Buttigieg’s presidential prospects. Via The Hill:

“He’s thirty-eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself— “ big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter.

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

That’s right. The President liberals credit with gay marriage said that Buttigieg is too gay to be President. And he did so after the man came to him for advice in handling the very brand of homophobia Obama exhibited in that speech.

No matter your views on homosexuality, one thing is certain. Obama built much of his reputation on his alleged support for the community. He did this despite a mountain of evidence that he was not genuine. After people gave him the benefit of the doubt, he betrayed that community broadly and one member of it specifically — a man who sought his guidance and trusted him. That’s the real Barack Obama.
