Cori Bush paid over $137,000 in security to antisemitic ‘spiritual guru’

Mar 9, 2023 | Political News

Far-left “Squad” member Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) has paid over $137,000 in campaign money to an antisemitic former Black Panther who claims he is hundreds of trillions of years old and can teach “psychic self-defense” for security.

According to Federal Election Commission filings, Nathaniel Davis III, also known as Aha Sen Piankhy, has received approximately $137,000 from Bush’s campaign since 2020 for “security services.”

The Washington Free Beacon reported that the St. Louis “spiritual guru” previously claimed in Facebook posts that he is “109 trillion years old in this galaxy” and can teach a person how “to protect yourself from telepathic and telekinetic attacks.”

According to the outlet, he has claimed to be able to summon hurricanes, and retrieve winning lottery numbers “from the spirit realm.”

Davis said during a July 17, 2020, Facebook livestream, “I’m going come teach [sic] the people how to survive. It’s what I came to this planet for in this lifetime. I’m 109 trillion years old in this galaxy, the Milky Way galaxy.”

The outlet revealed that Davis joined the antisemitic New Black Panther Party following the 2014 Ferguson riots and has a history of posting conspiracy theories filled with Jew hatred on social media.

On July 17, 2020, in two Facebook posts, Davis said the Rothschilds, in a repeat of an antisemitic conspiracy theory about a Jewish family championed by white supremacists, have had “every president elected in every country in the Western Hemisphere” and that they and other members of the “global elite” unleashed the coronavirus because they are trying to “kill every last one of us.”

He added, “That’s what this global pandemic is about. We’re getting a new global system put in place by the families that run the planet. It’s not a conspiracy theory, man, it’s just facts. How do we have a global pandemic and everybody was affected by a virus that was created in a lab? It’s not natural. That means it was planned … Which means they planned this pandemic on us as a people.”

Davis continued, “You got the global elite looking to kill every last one of us. They want to wipe out half the population of the planet.”

Bush’s security guard has also dabbled in with QAnon conspiracies and encouraged followers to grow their own gardens in order to produce their own food to stand up to the “global elite.”

Bush herself has a history of supporting the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. The progressive congresswoman is also friends with antisemitic activist Neveen Ayesh, who in 2014 posted on Twitter that she wanted to “set Israel on fire with my own hands & watch it burn to ashes along with every Israeli in it.”

The Democratic congresswoman is Facebook friends with Davis and the pair were spotted together on July 3, 2020, marching outside the home of Mark and Patricia McCloskey, who the previous week had brandished their firearms on a group of Black Lives Matter protesters in St. Louis who were protesting outside their home.

Last week, an Federal Elections Commission complaint was filed against Bush related to $60,000 in campaign payments to her now-husband, Cortney Merritts, who was paid to guard the congresswoman despite not having a required private security license.
