    Time to welcome new batch of foreign workers to Trump's Mar-a-Lago club/crime scene

    Frank Cerabino, Palm Beach Post
    September 12, 2022

    The Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach has filed a request with the U.S. Department of Labor to hire 91 temporary foreign workers next month to staff the club as housekeepers, cooks and servers during the upcoming season.

    The club was raided last month by the FBI as part of the governmentís continuing efforts to recover scores of highly classified documents that were improperly taken by former President Donald Trump and haphazardly stored in the club in violation of multiple federal laws.

    ***

    Bienvenido, Bienvenue, Willkomen, Witaj, Selamat datang and Добро пожаловать (Dobro pozhalovat):

    We are so glad to have you foreign workers join us this year at Mar-a-Lago to serve and clean up after the people who value putting America first.

    We are looking forward to a busy season with many guests at the club, including possibly some who are not club members.

    So, it will be important for everybody on the property, right down to the cleaning staff, to know how to respond to the arrival of unexpected visitors.

    That's hilarious! Donnie's Ronnie might save his taxpayers some dough and send some of those persons on buses on a shorter trip to Mar-a-Lago.

    Aviation company used for migrant flights contributed to DeSantis allies

    Vertol Systems Inc also has connections to a Florida official in charge of its current immigration policy

    Gloria Oladipo
    Fri 23 Sep 2022

    The transportation service company that the Florida governor, Ron DeSantis, used to arrange flights for migrants to Marthaís Vineyard has contributed money to the governorís top allies and has connections to a Florida official in charge of its immigration policy. Vertol Systems Inc, an Oregon-based aviation company that DeSantis used to fly asylum seekers to the affluent, liberal-leaning Massachusetts island, has connections to DeSantisís political allies and has donated money to various campaigns, NBC News reported.

    The company once had legal representation from the Florida congressman Matt Gaetz, who was previously part of DeSantisí transition team when he became governor, and Gaetzís former law partner, Larry Keefe, who now works as the stateís ďpublic safety tsarĒ and carries out the controversial relocation program, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Keefe has previously represented Vertol in dozens of lawsuits between 2010 and 2017, the Times also reported.

    Florida state representative Jay Trumbull Jr, a Republican involved in obtaining funding for the relocation program as appropriations committee chair, received a $1,000 donation from Vertol during his campaign for Florida state senate this year, reported the Intercept. The company also donated over $12,000 in total to various Florida political campaigns, including $2,500 to a Super Pac that supported Gaetz.

    DeSantisí administration has continually refused to release information on money it has given Vertol for its role in relocating asylum seekers.

    So far, the company was awarded a $12m contract and has received more than $1m from Florida to fly asylum seekers to Democrat-led northern cities, reported NBC News, including migrants who are located in other states. Public records have confirmed that Florida paid Vertol $615,000 last week to recruit about 50 Venezuelan migrants in Texas and fly them to Marthaís Vineyard in Massachusetts, with authorities noting that many migrants were tricked into going under the guise of receiving relocation resources like cash assistance and job training, when no arrangement had been made with the island.

    The chartered flights are currently the subject of a criminal investigation in Texas as well as a civil suit from the asylum seekers themselves who say they were deceived into going.

    The company was had also been expected to fly another group of asylum seekers on Tuesday to an airport located near Joe Bidenís beach house in Delaware, but the charter flight never arrived, though Florida gave Vertol an additional $950,000.

    For that amount, they could have leased nice houses or apartments for all those people, covered subsistence, and provided language instruction, job training and placement.

    Instead, they rob the public purse, enrich their cronies, and score political points with their knuckle-dragging fascist mob.

    Nanci Pelosi asks why they are shipping migrants north, when theyíre needed here to pick crops

    So much for Chipís slave-state nonsense. Nancy clearly knows California needs illegals to pick avocados and clean houses.

    It's amazing how much panic one honest man can spread among a multitude of hypocrites.

    So if there's a list of job opportunities and housing, will DeSantis pay for chartered fights to California?

    In a pig's arse, he will.

    Note, dear readers, how Chip deflects from Speaker Pelosi's unfortunate gaffe by simply ignoring reality; and then invents some absurdity about job openings. Didn't someone already identify this tactic?

    Note how, as of this post, CNN still hasn't reported this news. They're waiting for John Brennan to tell us it's more Russian disinformation, I suppose.

    Note also how Chip completely ignores how these illegals got to Florida in the first place. Did someone bus them there? Were they flown there by charter in the dead of night? Who would have paid for that transportation? Surely the administration publicized that they were going to do this, didn't they? Surely CNN reported this news. Surely Chip was similarly aggrieved when he learned about these migrants the Biden administration was transporting out of Texas? Ol' Joe should have just asked Nancy where they were needed.

    DeSantis is too busy trying to get the funding he voted against right now to send immigrants anywhere.

    Uh, no Chuck.
    I realize the type of news sources you visit likely did not carry the story but, right now, DeSantis is trying to do all he can to support the several million State residents who were devastated by Hurricane Ian.
    It will get to your news sources sooner or later.....look for it.

    Huh?
    The topic here is DeSantis!!

    And, as best as I can tell, there is nothing "threatening" about it.

    It's just the next verse in your same song Chuck. Deflect, divert, ignore, on and on and on..........

    Ok. Totally over the line. I'm calling you out on this Chuck and don't even think about ignoring, diverting or deflecting it.
    Your statement is completely false. A total figment of your imagination. Just what I was talking about yesterday. You guys do this all the time.... and for an accusation of this magnitude you'd better either damn prove it to be true or admit that you have lied.
    Either post the link to where you say I did this..... or issue a public apology to me right now.

    Sure, but since the time I challenged you to substantiate your delirious and defamatory claim you have made several other posts on this sub-forum.
    Much more time consuming work than it would be to post the link to validate your egregious accusation.

    You can't do it because it never happened.

    Let's go Chuck, put up or shut up.
