Tom McCarthy Talks About How to Live Life Without Limits Through His Book “The Breakthrough Code”

Nothing is as scary as a fear of failure. The vast majority of people who seek to do anything extraordinary set out to fail, and those who have huge aspirations are fully aware that they will constantly have to overcome multiple difficult obstacles. Unfortunately, not all people who experience breakthroughs share their stories of success. The world’s # 1 High Stakes Performance coach, Tom McCarthy, devoted his legacy to helping individuals in business, sports, and life to reach their own breakthroughs.

Tom is a seasoned life coach who has compiled his life’s work in the last three decades, teaching clients like Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Wells Fargo, Salesforce, MetLife, and other high-achievers how to live what he calls “a life without limits.” His blueprint to success is now compiled into a book entitled “The Breakthrough Code.”

New York Times #1 Bestselling Author Tony Robbins even raved about Tom’s book and said, “Tom McCarthy is a masterful breakthrough coach with a gift for helping others see the power in their story. When life doesn’t work out according to your plan, that is actually the plan. Adversity is what allows us to grow, and nobody understands that better than Tom. This book provides the blueprint to crack the code and live a life without limits.”

Every person’s next big life-changing breakthrough is already happening; it just needs a little help from a veteran. To help catapult individuals to success, Tom tackled three main points in his book, “The Breakthrough Code.” 

He opened his fable with his first idea: “Focus On Less Then Obsess.” Tom realized that the greatest performers in life could not excel in a dozen fields. Hence, he says that success is achieved by concentrating the efforts where they might have the most influence. Once they master concentrating on one issue to achieve a breakthrough, they are capable of overcoming any obstacle with their power. 

Tom’s second idea is to “Upgrade Your Story, Upgrade Your Life.” Tom tells the readers to enhance their narrative and life, adding that their identity determines who they are, and their narrative covers their philosophy, abilities, capabilities, and weaknesses. Tom also insightfully adds that one’s opinions are shaped by their self-image. Based on tone and significance, narratives may give or revoke agency. Tom asserts that to progress, one must provide a more sophisticated narrative. 

Lastly, Tom shares that one needs to “Pack Your Day With Effective Actions.” According to him, working non-stop is not necessary, but being productive is. He discusses two types of actions that can help individuals in their breakthroughs. “Recovery actions,” such as meditating, sleeping, or spending quality time with family, will help refuel a person’s energy throughout the day. Meanwhile, “achievement actions,” such as conceptualizing ideas, creating content, going to meetings, writing emails, negotiating and selling, are the actions that will take a person one step further toward their goals. 

Tom advocates striking a balance between accomplishment and relaxation to reach breakthrough outcomes without exhaustion. The quicker and easier a person achieve their goals, the more daily development and healing they will experience.

Tom continues to help individuals through his Instagram account, where he shares more tips on how to “live life without limits.”


Better Bettors: Sports Consultant Ryan O’Rourke’s Sports Betting System Delivers Over 60% Win Rate

Avid sports bettors know all too well the thrills of putting money on the line for their teams. Whether it is through going on a hunch or doing crude calculations for a better shot at the right predictions, the glory is the same – the touchdown hits, the crowd goes wild, and lucky bettors go home with the motherlode, excited to try their luck for the next game. Does it always have to be down to luck, though? Sports Consultant Ryan O’Rourke challenges that notion with his sports betting system that consistently delivers a win rate of over 60%.

Sports betting may be preceded by a less-than-ideal reputation for those unfamiliar with it, but many would be surprised to learn it is a growing industry where sports enthusiasts can enjoy placing bets and earning profits safely and cleanly with the use of technology. However, not all sports betting techniques are created equally. This is where seeking the right consultant for guidance and advice is important for the best betting experience, much like how a beginning investor may seek professional advice in navigating the financial market.

Ryan is not your typical Sports Consultant. A native of Vancouver, Washington, Ryan is no stranger to high-level sports, having been a division 1 athlete at Arizona State University during his college days. His extensive athletic experience led to him developing a keen eye for minute nuances not easily spotted by others. His background in statistics made his uncanny ability to pick winners something that cannot be dismissed as mere luck.

It was on a fateful day when he saw a film set in the world of sports betting called Two for the Money, starring Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey, inspiring him to explore and hone his special eye for winners that the film’s protagonist, McConaughey’s character Brandon Lang, similarly possessed and found success in. 

Sure enough, this spark grew into a flame and eventually paved the way to a lucrative career for Ryan. However, he did not get to his famed win rate percentage overnight.

Ryan first spent a few years gathering experience and growing his confidence in picking out winning sports lines. But it was only during the 2018 NBA season that his gift began to bear significant fruit, making $100,000 on bets from February to April that year. Since then, Ryan has been unstoppable.

What is the formula behind his winning bets? Ryan shared that he developed a system that takes inspiration from how line makers operate in developing their lines. This, coupled with math variables that he spent ten years perfecting through long nights of trial and error and around 10,000 game bets, has made for a remarkable system that he wants to use to help others make profits on sports while they have fun watching the games.

Many understand that in the stock market, competent financial analysts take a look at factors such as a company’s profile, historical performance, quality of management, and the current economic landscape in making recommendations for stock purchasing to clients and advising them on the next steps to do with their investments given what they predict may likely happen in the future. Much is the same in sports betting, where due diligence and rigor in research are done by consultants like Ryan in guiding their clients on their bets.

As eagle-eyed as any businessman, Ryan is not blind to the external factors that can affect any projected outcomes in sports and in investments alike. In his endeavor to help others become successful sports bettors, this is a risk his experience has made him familiar with, which he does not try to hide from his clients.

“Whether you have a $500 bankroll or a $500,000 bankroll to start with, you have to be able to let the ups and downs of the season take place,” Ryan said. But with this, he assured that his system, with its consistent over 60% win rate, brings returns just as high as, if not more significant than, any typical 401k. “Strategic sports betting is not gambling. Gamblers lose, I don’t,” he left off. 

Elon Musk shares a conspiracy theory on Twitter

Elon Musk has finally bought out the popular social media platform Twitter after six months of back-and-forth negotiations.

His Twitter purchase was finalized last Thursday evening.

Four days later, Musk appeared to believe in a conspiracy theory surrounding the recent attack on Paul Pelosi with a link on Twitter.

The tweet

Elon Musk tweeted a link to an article discussing a conspiracy theory about Pelosi.

The site is known for advertising itself as a news channel.

Musk responded to Hillary Clinton on Twitter, addressing Pelosi’s attack:

“The Republican Party and its mouthpieces now regularly spread hate and deranged conspiracy theories.”

“It is shocking, but not surprising, that violence is the result.”

“As citizens, we must hold them accountable for their words and the actions that follow.”

Elon Musk shared a link to a suspicious story, saying:

“There is a tiny possibility there might be more to this story than meets the eye.”

The website made false claims in 2016, alleging that the real Hillary Clinton was dead.

Additionally, the site supports the idea that the person in the presidential campaign was Clinton’s impersonator.

Musk’s tweet with the conspiracy theory article raises concerns about how he will manage the social media platform.

As a result, many are raising questions about disinformation and hate getting a more prominent platform now.

Elon Musk’s takeover

The Tesla owner finalized his purchase of the social media platform on Thursday evening.

Musk’s acquisition creates an upheaval for Twitter employees and the hundreds of millions of people around the world who use the platform.

Additionally, the Twitter purchase could play an important role in the upcoming US midterm elections.

Months earlier, Elon Musk promised to restore suspended user accounts and limit content restrictions.

Donald Trump is one of the personalities to have been banned from Twitter.

Initial goals

When he agreed to buy the company in April, and before attempting to get himself out of the deal, Elon Musk emphasized two goals:

  • To bolster free speech on Twitter
  • To unlock the platform’s extraordinary potential

Musk indicated that he will revise Twitter’s content moderation approach and permanent bans.

However, the decision can influence the civil discourse and political landscape.

Additionally, the Tesla owner reiterated his goal of removing bots from Twitter.

The same argument about the number of bots on the platform eventually became his argument for getting out of the deal months earlier.

Biden’s Ukraine strategy the subject of several Liberal Democrats in a letter

More than two dozen liberal members of the House are requesting US President Joe Biden to change course in his strategy for Ukraine.

Instead, they suggest that he pursue direct diplomacy with Russia to end the conflict that’s been going on for months.


A group of 30 Democrats sent a letter to Biden earlier this week.

They praised the President’s efforts to support Ukraine without direct US involvement.

However, they propose more vigorous efforts to end the war through diplomacy, believing it necessary to avoid lengthy conflict.

Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Pramila Jayapal led the group and helped with the letter.

“Given the destruction created by this war for Ukraine and the world, as well as the risk of catastrophic escalation,” the letter began.

“We also believe it is in the interest of Ukraine, the United States, and the world to avoid a prolonged conflict.”

“For this reason, we urge you to pair the military and economic support the United States has provided to Ukraine with a proactive diplomatic push, redoubling efforts to see a realistic framework for a ceasefire.”

The situation

The letter was written at a crucial time in the Russia-Ukraine war.

Russia is targeting more civilian infrastructure to cut off power to Ukrainian citizens before winter.

Meanwhile, US lawmakers are questioning Ukraine’s continued financial and military support.

Some Republicans threatened to halt aid if they win Congress in the November elections.

However, Liberal Democrats argue that direct attempts to involve Moscow in diplomacy were necessary during the war.

They also raise it in the letter.

“We are under no illusions regarding the difficulties involved in engaging Russia given its outrageous and illegal invasion of Ukraine and its decision to make additional illegal annexation of Ukrainian territory.”

“However, if there is a way to end the war while preserving a free and independent Ukraine,” the letter continued.

“It is America’s responsibility to pursue every diplomatic avenue to support such a solution that is acceptable to the people of Ukraine.”

Russia and Ukraine

John Kirby, the Strategic Communications Coordinator at the National Security Council, confirmed that the White House received the letter.

“We certainly appreciate the sentiments expressed by these members of Congress,” said Kirby.

“We have been working with members of Congress throughout this entire process, especially when we have needed additional funding to support Ukraine’s defense needs.”

John Kirby says there is no sign that Russian President Vladimir Putin will engage in serious diplomacy to end the war.

“When you see and listen to his rhetoric, and you see the other things,” Kirby started.

“Be they atrocities, the war crimes, the airstrikes against civilian infrastructures that the Russians are committing; it’s clear Mr. Putin is in no mood to negotiate.”

John Kirby says it’s up to the country and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to decide when to return to negotiating.

“Mr. Zelensky gets to determine when he thinks that’s the right time,” he elaborated.

“[And] Mr. Zelensky gets to determine because it’s his country, what success looks like, what victory looks like, and what sort of terms he’s willing to negotiate on.”

“We’re not going to dictate that,” Kirby concluded.


Liberal Democrats call on Biden to shift Ukraine strategy


Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania drops first trailer and sucks viewers into a world of wonder and questions

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has released its first trailer, giving fans a taste of the next phase in the MCU.

Like most trailers, the Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer sparked a lot of excitement and raised important questions like:

  • What happened to Janet Van Dyne in the Quantum Realm?
  • Who does Bill Murray play?
  • What does Kang want?

The Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer

The trailer continues the trend seen in Phase 4 projects, which shows the world after the Avengers save the universe from Thanos.

A highlight includes Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) enjoying his new celebrity status, but he is still mistaken for Spider-Man.

However, things suddenly get worse for Scott and the Ant-Man family.

Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton) experiments with a way to communicate with the Quantum Realm.

Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) tries to stop her efforts, aware of the danger that this entails.

Before they can stop the experiment, the family is sucked into the Quantum Realm.

The first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania shows that most of the film takes place in the Quantum Realm.

We also meet Kang the Conqueror (albeit a variant of the Loki series), played by Jonathan Majors.

The trailer also shows Cassie Lang joining her father in a fight.

Bill Murray

Veteran comedian Bill Murray makes his MCU debut as the mysterious Krylar.

Krylar’s inclusion in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania surprises long-time fans, considering he only appeared once in the comics.

Surprisingly, his appearance wasn’t even in an Ant-Man comic but in The Incredible Hulk.

However, Bill Murray’s appearance raises many questions about Janet Van Dyne’s past.

His connection with her will provide details of her stay in the Quantum Realm all those years.

Kang the Conqueror

Jonathan Majors debuted in the MCU as a variant of Kang called He Who Remains.

Although his character is the least evil of his variants, Kang’s appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania promises something sinister for the Ant-Man family.

In the trailer, Kang offers to help Ant-Man return to his world if he helps him get his hands on a mysterious object.

Their heist could open the door to a possible Phase 5 showdown that ends with Kang facing off the new Avengers roster.

Janet Van Dyne and the Quantum Realm

Janet Van Dyne was trapped in the Quantum Realm for the first two films.

Her time in the Quantum Realm is filled with secrets that not even Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) knows.

When she discovers Cassie’s attempts, she tries to stop her from making a big mistake.

The film explores Janet Van Dyne’s time in the Quantum Realm.

Meta to make changes after stocks fall 17%

Meta announced its second-quarter results on Wednesday, revealing that the company had declined since its IPO.

The social media giant warns of sweeping changes ahead of 2023, starting with cost cutting.

The decision was taken to deal with the economic crisis which hit Meta’s main online advertising business.


Meta posted revenue of $27.7 billion for the three months ending September.

Revenues are down 4% year-over-year but still above Wall Street analysts’ expectations.

The company posted its first quarterly decline in the June quarter.

The company also reported a net income of nearly $4.4 billion, less than half the same period last year.

Meta revenues are below analyst forecasts.

Founder and CEO of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg, released a statement:

“We’re approaching 2023 with a focus on prioritization and efficiency that will help us navigate the current environment and emerge an even stronger company.”

Meta stocks

Shares of the company fell nearly 17% in after-hours trading on Wednesday after the earnings announcement.

Demand for online advertising has recently declined because of the rising inflation and recession fears.

Google and Snap have also seen their ad revenue decline.

Meanwhile, Meta CFO David Wehner said the average price per ad across the company’s platforms fell 18% in the quarter.

App users

The growth of Meta users is slowing due to competitors like TikTok.

The company had 2.96 billion monthly active users on the Facebook app at the end of the quarter, up 2% year-over-year.

However, it declined from last year’s 6% growth in the same quarter.

Meta app’s daily active users grew 4% to 2.93 billion, compared to an 11% increase in 2021.

Zuckerberg noted that Instagram has more than 2 billion monthly active users, while WhatsApp has more than 2 billion.

The metaverse

The core challenges emerge when Meta invests billions of dollars in an ambitious effort to build the metaverse.

However, the metaverse is probably years away from perfection.

Wehner said the operational losses associated with the metaverse in 2023 would continue to increase year-after-year.

The Reality Labs unit lost nearly $3.7 billion in the September quarter.

So far this year, it has already cost Meta $9.4 billion.

Additionally, Reality Labs unit sales were down nearly 50% year-over-year in the September quarter.

Changes and reduction

Altimeter Capital last week wrote an open letter to make changes such as:

  • Reduce headcount expenses by at least 20%
  • Reduce annual expenditure by at least $5 billion
  • Limit investment in the metaverse to $5 billion per year

David Wehner said the company is making significant changes across the board for efficient operation.

Meanwhile, executives said Meta expects the headcount to be around 87,314 or less by the end of 2023, as reported in late September.

“We are holding some teams in terms of headcount, shrinking others, and investing headcount growth only in our highest priorities,” said Wehner.

Additionally, Wehner hinted that Meta might downsize its physical office footprint.

Key investments

On the analyst call, Zuckerberg focused on three key investment areas for the coming years:

  • Meta’s AI discovery engine, which powers Reels and other recommendations
  • Ads and business messaging
  • Meta’s future vision for the metaverse

Earlier this month, Meta introduced its new virtual reality headset, the Meta Quest Pro.

The social media giant made its potential known to professional customers.

Meta expects quarterly revenue of between $30 billion and $32.5 billion for the last three months of 2022.

The forecast expects a decrease of 3.5% compared to the previous year.

Henry Cavill is still Superman, confirms return on Instagram

Henry Cavill’s Superman has been gone for a few years, but the actor revealed he will remain as Superman for the DCEU.

Warning: the following contains spoilers

Henry Cavill’s announcement

Henry Cavill took to social media to talk to fans about his appearance in the Black Adam mid-credits scene.

He also assured them that this was not the end.

Cavill also confirmed that he is returning as Superman for more DC films.

“I wanted to wait until the weekend was over before posting this because I wanted to give you all the chance to watch Black Adam,” said Cavill.

Henry Cavill is known for making sure fans don’t get spoilers about the projects he’s involved in.

“Now that plenty of you have, I wanted to make it official: I am back as Superman.”

“What you see in this image and in Black Adam is just a very small taste of things to come.”

“There’s a lot to be thankful for, and I’ll get to that in time, but I wanted to thank you most of all,” said Cavill, referring to his supporters.

“Thank you for your support and for your patience. I promise it will be rewarded.”

Warner Bros.

Since his debut in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, Henry Cavill’s Superman has been the subject of debate.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was unfairly bombarded by critics, paving the way for Cavill and the Justice League movie to get backlash.

After Snyder’s departure, Joss Whedon’s directorial takeover only put the DCEU in an even more challenging position.

Warner Bros. moved between companies like AT&T and Discovery, but Snyder’s impact can still be felt on DC projects following his release.

Wonder Woman and Aquaman won over fans and received sequels.

The Flash movie will be released next year.

Ben Affleck’s Batman, first criticized and then deservedly praised, will also return.

Meanwhile, the highly anticipated Snyder Cut later dubbed Zack Snyder’s Justice League, found success in HBO Max.

A Man of Steel sequel had been put on hold and was rumored never to appear.

Instead, there were rumors of a new Superman movie.

The rumors felt solidified until Dwayne Johnson stepped in.

Black Adam gives Superman a boost

Dwayne Johnson revealed that the Black Adam team was frustrated that Walter Hamada turned down a Superman cameo in the film.

Johnson, however, is full of praise for Henry Cavill, describing him as a “great” and “beloved” Superman.

The Black Adam actor also highlights how Cavill loves the Superman mythology and knows the character from the heart.

“And then on top of that, the most important thing is, fans love him as Superman,” said Johnson.

“He’s been on the sideline for five years, and no one’s talking about it!”

The Man of Steel’s return

His cameo in Black Adam inspired the executives of Warner Bros. to bring Henry Cavill back to DC projects.

A sequel to Man of Steel is reportedly in the works, and producer Charles Roven is also said to be back.

In the Black Adam mid-credit scene, Superman steps out of the shadows in Black Adam to confront the champion of Khandaq.

The scene also used John Williams’ original theme from the 1978 film Superman.

The decision to pick Williams’ theme gave fans renewed hopes for Henry Cavill’s return as the Man of Steel.

Stock market movement largely positive in October this year

The October stock market is known for its significant declines over the years, most notably in 1929, 1987 and 2008.

However, the stock market successfully managed to avoid similar crashes in 2022.

Wall Street investors have nothing to fear as the month closes.

The market continued its streak from October on Monday and recorded another strong rally.


The Dow Jones closed up more than 420 points (1.3%) on Monday.

Additionally, the Dow Jones rose almost 10% in October, recovering from the sharp falls in August and September.

However, blue-chip industrials and other giants of the US economy remain 13% down this year, including:

  • Apple (AAPL)
  • Microsoft (MSFT)
  • Coca-Cola (KO)
  • McDonald’s (MCD)
  • Disney (DIS)

Federal Reserve

The market rebounded this month, hoping the Federal Reserve would reverse its aggressive rate hikes to fight inflation.

Strong interest rate hikes are expected during Fed meetings on November 2 and later in December.

However, some people hope the Fed can suspend rate hikes next year.

The solid third-quarter results also help strengthen stocks.

The bear market

The S&P 500 rose 1.2%, while the Nasdaq gained 0.9% on Monday.

Both indexes also posted decent gains for October.

The Nasdaq is up more than 3.5%, while the S&P 500 is up almost 6%.

Unfortunately, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq are still down more than 20% each this year, putting them in a bear market.

The Nasdaq was in the green zone on Monday, which is better positioned than others.

The Chinese market and other stocks

Several leading Chinese tech stocks trading in the US fell on fears of a crackdown in China.

The crackdown stemmed from news that Xi Jinping will serve for a third term as China’s leader.

Meanwhile, the e-commerce company Pinduoduo (PDD) lost more than 25%.

Electric vehicle manufacturers and significant Chinese tech stocks reported double-digit loss rates, including:

  • Nio (NIO)
  • Xpev
  • Li Auto
  • Alibaba (BABA)
  • Baidu (BIDU)
  • Tencent (TCEHY)

Tesla shares fell 1.5%, while Starbucks fell 5.5%.

The fast food giant Yum! Brands (YUM) fell 2%, while Yum China (YUMC) fell 14%.

Yum China distributes several popular food chains in China, such as:

  • KFC
  • Pizza Hut
  • Taco Bell

Wynn Resorts and (WYNN) and Las Vegas Sands (LVS), casino owners that have properties in Macau, also fell.


October surprise? Stocks continue to sizzle this month


Kanye West said to admire Hitler and Nazis

Kanye West, now known as Ye, has had a hard time career-wise in recent weeks due to his antisemitic views.

As a result, many major brands have been parting ways with the rapper.

Ye was reportedly fascinated by Adolf Hitler and wanted to name an album after the dictator.

The obsession

A business executive who previously worked with Ye revealed that the rapper created a work environment hostile with his obsession with Hitler.

“He would praise Hitler by saying how incredible it was that he was able to accumulate so much power,” said the executive.

He added that Kanye West would openly discuss what Hitler and the Nazi party had achieved for the Germans.

The executive resigned and later reached a settlement with the rapper and some of his companies over workplace harassment and complaints.

Due to a confidentiality agreement and fear of retaliation, the business executive has chosen to remain anonymous.

The 2018 album

The executive shared that Kanye West would talk about reading Hitler’s 1925 autobiographical manifesto.

The rapper has also openly expressed his admiration for Hitler’s and the Nazis’ use of propaganda.

Meanwhile, Kanye West’s entourage was “fully aware” of his Hitler obsession.

Additionally, four sources say West originally wanted the title “Hitler” for his 2018 album.

Instead, the album was called “Ye.”

Universal Music Group released a statement on Tuesday confirming that the company ended its relationship with GOOD Music Label last year.

Ye is the owner of GOOD Music Label.

The company owns Def Jam, which distributed Kanye West’s music.

“There is no place for antisemitism in our society,” Universal Group said.

“We are deeply committed to combating antisemitism and every other form of prejudice.”


Van Lathan Jr. recently claimed that Kanye West made anti-Semitic remarks in an interview four years ago.

Lathan Jr. is a former TMZ employee who spoke with Ye after he said slavery sounded like a choice.

According to him, TMZ did not publish the antisemitic statements at the time.

Based on his previous interview, the rapper’s recent endeavors were no surprise to Lathan.

“I already heard him say that stuff before at TMZ,” said Lathan in his podcast earlier this month.

“I mean, I was taken aback because that type of antisemitic talk is disgusting. It’s like, I’m taken aback any time anyone does that, right?”

“But as far as [West]. I knew that that was in him because when he came to TMZ, he said that stuff and they took it out of the interview.”

“He said something like, ‘I love Hitler, I love Nazis,'” Lathan added. “Something to that effect when he was there.”

“And they took it out of the interview for whatever reason. It wasn’t my decision.”

Several brands cut ties with Kanye West

Kanye West’s offensive comments led to professional fallout that seems to have ended his career.

Adidas ended their seven-year association with the rapper on Tuesday, calling his actions “unacceptable, hateful and dangerous.”

Balenciaga and the AAA talent agency also ended relations with Ye.

Production company MRC says it is canceling a documentary about the rapper.

Meanwhile, GAP has announced the removal of Yeezy Gap merchandise from stores.

Additionally, the apparel company is shutting down the YeezyGap website.

Ron DeSantis under investigation by Treasury Department for his migrant flights

Massachusetts Senator Edward Markey wrote a letter stating that the Treasury Department Inspector General was investigating Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ flights to Martha’s Vineyard.

The September flights brought the migrants to the vineyard.

The investigation also examines whether Florida has used Covid funds to transfer migrants.


In September, DeSantis took responsibility for two flights carrying migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard.

Markey and six other Massachusetts lawmakers wrote a letter to the Treasury Department two days after the flights.

They called for an investigation into the funds used to transport the migrants.

Richard Delmar, the department’s assistant inspector general, confirmed that the regulator’s office is planning an audit of the state’s use of state and local bailout funds.

The letter

The letter that written on October 7 reads:

“We will review the allowability of SLFRF funds related to immigration generally, and will specifically confirm whether interest earned on SLFRF funds was utilized by Florida related to immigration activities, and if so, what conditions and limitations apply to such use.”

The Democratic senator welcomed the department’s decision and released a statement saying:

“For the sake of the migrants who were lured onto charter planes under false pretenses, and for the commendable Commonwealth residents who rallied together to offer support, I hope that this investigation sheds light on whether Gover DeSantis misused funds that were intended for Covid relief for Floridians.”

State program

Previous reports indicate that the flights may have exceeded the original scope of Florida’s undocumented plan.

In the months leading up to the flights, Florida drafted a tougher order for a controversial new state program to transport migrants to other states.

According to a request from contractors and program guidelines, the ultimate goal was to get foreigners who are not legally resident in the United States out of Florida.

However, the plan never materialized.

The flight

On September 14, two planes loaded 48 migrants in San Antonio, not Florida, before landing at Martha’s Vineyard.

The Vineyard is an island off the coast of Massachusetts where wealthy vacationers often spend their summers.

DeSantis’ decision to deploy the flights was part of his criticism of the federal government’s immigration and border security policies.

Meanwhile, lawyers for the migrants have filed a class action lawsuit, claiming they were tricked into boarding the flights.

Migrants were told they would arrive with housing, work and assistance in the immigration process.

However, local officials said no one at Martha’s Vineyard knew they were coming.


Treasury Department watchdog is examining DeSantis’ flights carrying migrants to Martha’s Vineyard
