End Citizens United Backed Candidate Beto O’Rourke Making Up Ground In Texas Race

The majority of Republicans are concerned about the upcoming election cycle. Republicans are aware that the Democrats are gaining momentum in areas where voters have typically supported Republicans. The latest poll from political action committee End Citizens United shows that Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke is a major threat to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz. This would certainly be a shocking victory for the Democrats. Other polls have supported End Citizens United as they also show that O’Rourke has closed the gap on Cruz. Here is a closer look at how this situation has unfolded. Read more about End Citizens United at politifact.com

Cruz’s Self Sabotage

Many experts believe that Cruz is sabotaging his campaign. Many voters have a less than positive view of Cruz. Cruz has developed a reputation for sometimes looking out for his own interests at the expense of his constituents. Many of the voters who have a negative opinion of Cruz admit that they are not that familiar with O’Rourke and his political views. It’s possible that many voters will vote against Cruz regardless of what the alternative is. Many voters have been impressed with O’Rourke’s charismatic speaking ability.

Beto O’Rourke’s Impression On Voters

By many accounts, O’Rourke has been much more active on the campaign trail than Cruz. O’Rourke has traveled throughout Texas looking to impact the hearts of voters. O’Rourke has visited every county in Texas. O’Rourke wants Texans to receive a good education, so that they can get their dream job. O’Rourke also plans to overhaul the health care system so that all Texans will have access to affordable health care. O’Rourke also wants to help make Texans become more welcoming of immigrants. O’Rourke has said that reuniting families that have been separated at the border is one of his main priorities.

Raising Funds

O’Rourke has been able to raise millions of dollars without getting help from any PACs. However, Cruz will accept money from PACs, which has allowed him to operate with a larger campaign budget than O’Rourke. End Citizens United supports the grassroots advocacy work done by O’Rourke and other Democrats. End Citizens United hopes to stop the influence of money on politics.

Rick Shinto’s and Penelope Kokkinides’ Guidance of InnovaCare Health’s Health Outreach.

The fact that InnovaCare Health whose base is in New Jersey has not stopped it from reaching Puerto Rico to extend and offer its services after Hurricane Maria struck.


Currently, it runs one of the largest health plans in the island. Medicare Mucho Mas is the name given to the health care plan whose location is in San Juan. The city is still recovering from the hurricane hit, which lay almost everything to waste in its wake.


Healthcare facilities are either closed or were swept away, as doctors were also trying to cope. Moreover, the health professionals have a long trend of leaving the island for the mainland. This and the fact that there were blackouts which have now reduced to hours where they lasted for days. People moreover started finding shelter as the aftermath cleared.


‘Recargate’ or ‘Recharge’ a setup of MMM initially set up in Plaza las Americans shopping center initially started as a charging station that was temporary. It went on to transform to a makeshift clinic, where the Puerto Ricans flooded towards in search of care and counsel.


MMM President Orlando Gonzalez attested to the fact that Recargate has received over 20,000 visitors and an average of 130 per day. Being helped by Vice president Vivian Arthur, the program has developed outreach programs and established mobile clinics two weeks after the disaster.


Medicaid and Medicare are paying for the services provided to the patients. Moreover, corporations have also contributed food and drugs. Corporate communications vice president Annette Rodriguez added that the outreach programs had included home visits to the elderly to check on the elderly and to distribute supplies.


InnovaCare Health President and CEO, Dr. Richard Shinto, has credited Recargate for piloting in addressing health needs of the population and the outreach program for uncovering how social issues like poverty, lack of transport and housing instability affect health.


Penelope Kokkinides, an administrative officer at InnovaCare, attended a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump to discuss health care legislation. She put across that increase in funding is crucial to support medical services in Puerto Rico.


She went on to suggest that alterations should be made by the current administration in the Medicare Advantage, towards the benefit of the Puerto Ricans. She pointed out that making cuts in the payment for health services for the Puerto Ricans as responsible.


Kokkinides went on to advocate for the importance of women in the health industry.

Considering that Recargate has had to extend its closing time by months, its safe and relief to say that the program is making a difference.

Larkin & Lacey

Despite cases of racial discrimination being reported Joe Arpaio the county Sherriff of Arizona continued profiling Latinos and other immigrants who were seeking services at the immigration office, the sheriff also arrested and detained immigrants without cause and charged them with suspicion a ruling which a court found to lack adequate proof.

Due to public outcry reporters, Michel Lacey and Jim Larkin did an article that targeted these claims against Arpaio without their knowledge that the case against the sheriff was an ongoing investigation leading to their arrest.

Joe Apario used this arrest to arrange for a particular prosecutor attorney Andrew Thomas to write a subpoena against the New Times asking them to provide all documentation relating to the story that Jim and Lacey did, as well as all internet website traffic information of the article.

In a bid to get information about the people who had read the article about human rights violations done by the sheriff and his staff and a case about his real estate dealings. Seeing as he could not pursue charges the attorney dropped the case against the two.

After their arrest, more newspapers picked up the Arpaio’s story based on the Jim and Lacey article and did more publications and reports making the case attract a lot of attention and receive national coverage. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

24 days after their arrest Jim and Lacey were released and went ahead to file a suit against the sheriff and releasing more incriminating material on corruption and malpractices, this suit settled for $3.7 million.

Because of the negative publicity from the cases against Arpaio, he did not get re-elected to a seventh term in office and in 2007 he got arrested for being in contempt of court in a Melendres suit. Despite this though, Arpaio aligned himself with Trump during his campaign and endorsed his candidacy very early even when most people were sure he could not get past the nomination stage.

This strategy helped Arpaio who received a pardon from President Donald Trump after he took office in the former sheriff’s defense the president explained that nationalists viewed him as a hero.

During the Sheriff’s tenure in office, the Latino community was undermined, and the officers that worked under Arpaio propagated the racist policies and nationalists supported this cause claiming that the sheriff and his office were protecting them from “Illegal Immigrants.” Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/jim-larkin/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Village_Voice_Media

Human right movements started to come up as a result of the cases that were reported against Arpaio and rallied around the Latino community seeking to help them.

One such group is Jim and Lacey who used the proceeds from the settlement to create the Frontera Fund, a group that helps Latinos and other marginalized communities to fight for their First Amendment Rights.

This fund gained momentum and followers and as a result, applied more pressure on Arpaio’s administration and their efforts gained more traction when the sheriff was charged with criminal contempt in 2017.

Despite the president’s pardon people are more aware of his misdeeds since the case captured enough attention and there is hope that his racial segregation agenda can permanently be abolished.

Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart Test New Ground

The Chainsmokers have been considered divergent for a few years now. The New York based EDM duo, enjoyed their first hit single back in 2014. Since then they have continued to remain mainstream. Their music has garnered a loyal following, and has transcended boundaries. From their involvement in the songwriting, to Taggart providing lead vocals, the duo has attempted to set themselves apart from their contemporaries. Still relatively new to the industry, the duo is not slowing down, and continues to push boundaries. Their recent 2018 release “Sick Boy” is a foray in a completely new direction, one the duo believes to be important to their future. This is not the first time they have dared to be different. Back in 2016 the Chainsmokers broke new ground in their single “Closer”. In the song Andrew Taggart took lead vocals, something that EDM DJ’s never really do. Since that point the Chainsmokers have been testing new ground and bridging new directions.


“No one else was doing it,” Pall stated in an interview, recapping the decision to let Taggart take vocals. “So we were like, “Why Not”. According to Pall the group works hard to find their identity, stay abreast of what is going on, and forge ahead new ground. “In order to stay engaged and interesting you have to try new things,” Pall declares. The duo definitely tries new things. In addition to the lead vocals, Taggart and Pall also have a heavy hand in songwriting. Most EDM music is a remix of another artists work, or a collaboration where the DJ’s provide the beat to someone else’s words. The Chainsmokers like to talk to their audience, actually have a story beneath their backbeat. “Sick Boy” is definite proof of that, as the song speaks very clearly about a struggle the artists face. The song focuses on the perils of social media, its dependency, effects, and the horrors of celebrity oversaturation. As with “Closer” Taggart provides the lead vocals. The song feels as though the band is truly speaking to the audience, and is the step both artists want to take.



Living In The Moment With Luiz Carlos Trabuco

You can never count Luiz Carlos Trabuco out in matters banking. Trabuco, who found himself in Bradesco as a young man, has made a career out of banking. Today, Bradesco celebrates Carlos as the man who single-handedly built the company from the bottom up.

Bradesco is currently the second largest private bank in Brazil because of Trabuco’s unique management skills. As you can recall, Bradesco in 1969 was a completely different landscape from what it is today. The profit margin at the time was subject to review leave alone the company’s asset distribution.

CEO Luiz Carlos Trabuco can now boast about turning the tables around after being able to stabilize the organization to its present state. To say the least, it has taken a man like Carlos to pull off such a stunt. However, all the credit cannot go to Trabuco alone. Mr. Luiz has been working closely with a team of capable men and women, people that have made Trabuco’s stay at Bradesco easy.

Carlos, after having a successful run as the company’s president, gets set to step down soon. As per the corporation’s traditions, it will be Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s role to choose a successor. Unfortunately, Trabuco is looking to the upright and so he has devolved such a role to the company’s executive.

Luiz expects the executive to choose a successor who will take Bradesco a thousand miles further than he did. Mind you, the successor does not have to come from the corporate circles as has been the norm in the banking situation.

There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel as Bradesco has already found a likable candidate in Octavio de Lazari Junior. You might not know this but Mr. Lazari is one of the youngest in the business yet the most experienced. Therefore, Bradesco feels confident in having Octavio leads its team as Lazari’s energy is what the company needs at the moment to become number one.

Carlos Trabuco who will be downing his tools soon as the president of the company believes in Lazari’s abilities and that is why he has not shunned his endorsement to the organization according to valor.com.br. In truth, Octavio is the young version of Trabuco, only that Lazari is way better.

Leading Bradesco has never been easy and so Octavio will need all the help in the world to make his new company a success. Fortunately, the corporation has more than enough good will in helping Lazari succeed in his endeavors. Bradesco apart from increasing its number of vice presidents has appointed Luiz Carlos Trabuco as the chairman of the board. In a nutshell, a new dawn is coming to Bradesco, a future in which Carlos will still be there to witness.

Betsy DeVos: The Monopoly of the Public-School System

On both side of the aisle, there has been an increasing interest in the concept of school choice among younger school-aged children. While originally considered a Republican ideal, there are more Democrats who have become open to the idea of school choice. It is because of this that Betsy DeVos believes that her campaign to increase awareness of the school choice market will also solidify an age of unification when it comes to educational standards. She wants what is best for the American youth, which is something that has been expressed by both Republicans and Democrats.


In fact, as the education system continues to decline on a global scale, more people from both parties have expressed the desire to overhaul the system. The problem, Betsy DeVos tells Philanthropy Roundtable, is that the public-school system has not been challenged for many years. They’ve reached a state of complacency and they do not work to change, simply to maintain. While this may get them by when it comes to their student populations, it’s not going to be a good exercise for increasing the overall performance of the national education system. The international partnerships and collaborations present within the school system have only served to show how far behind American schoolchildren have become. Betsy DeVos believes that the only answer to this problem is to increase funding and attendance into school choice programs.


One of the major themes of the public-school system is that their student population is virtually ensured. They do not have to worry about students choosing to go other places, because most parents do not understand that there is a choice available to them. Because of this they sometimes operate in substandard ways, simply working to get by. By introducing a little bit of capitalism into the education system, public school systems will feel the squeeze to do better and attract more talent to their schools. In another way, these school choice systems will allow students to have access to better educational standards because they have worked hard to attract different students. In essence, the public-school system has a monopoly on education.


Philanthropy Roundtable wanted to discuss some of the reasons that Betsy DeVos believes that this type of program will help save the education system. Betsy DeVos explains that on many occasions she had been exposed to parents who would do anything to provide their children with better education, it was then that she understands how important these problems had become. Now, she has become a major advocate for school choice and her home state of Michigan is one of the biggest proponents of these type of programs. She has seen other states like Louisiana, Florida, and Illinois follow suit and remains encouraged that this will be a continuing pattern in the future. Parents will find that the options available to them through the school choice system will give them a greater control over their children’s future, something that is the most important to Betsy DeVos and her dedicated staff.

Drew Madden Business Growth

Drew Madden is someone who has had a great career in the information technology industry. During his career, he was able to work for numerous companies. While working for a medical company, he learned various aspects of the medical industry. He noticed that costs were increasing rapidly. Few people could afford the medical care that they needed.

As a result, Drew Madden decided to start a company in the medical industry. Although it was difficult for him to raise the capital he needed, he recently left his job in order to run his company.


One of the most difficult parts of starting a business is getting the capital required to implement various business ideas. Drew Madden did not have the cash to pay for all of his business expenses. He tried to get a business loan, but most banks were unwilling to lend him money at a reasonable interest rate.

He decided to pitch his business idea to several investors. He eventually received some working capital from a local investor. He exchanged a percentage of his company in exchange for the capital. In the coming years, Drew Madden wants to raise additional capital in order to fund various projects.

Changing Medical Care

There are numerous issues with the current medical system. Not only are costs increasing, but technology is not used appropriately. One of the best ways to use technology is to help prevent diseases before they actually begin. Preventing a disease is much less expensive than treating a disease. There are many people who are willing to pay for preventive health services.

Drew Madden’s company focuses on helping people live a healthy lifestyle. If people would eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, they would have a much lower risk of developing a major illness. Medical costs are the leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States today. Spending time and money on health can actually save money over a long period of time. Working with Drew Madden is a great decision for anyone who wants to save money on medical costs.
