Another Smidgen Of IRS Corruption

 

 

RAMIREZ SMIDGEN

 

 

 

” There’s nothing like the truth to erode the credibility of America’s chief executive. Remember when President Obama told Bill O’Reilly during his Super Bowl interview “There is not a smidgen of corruption,” referring to the IRS?

  Not only does it appear there might be a “smidgen” of corruption, there is apparently a steaming pile of incompetence as well. According to a report by the Associated Press, the Internal Revenue Service has paid more than $2.8 million in bonuses. More than 2,800 workers got bonuses despite facing a disciplinary action in the previous year, including 1,150 who owed back taxes. A report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration indicates the bonuses were awarded from October 2010 through December 2012. George also uncovered the IRS targeting of conservative groups for which he was viciously attacked by liberal progressives.”

Harry Reid’s Connection To Bundy Ranch Siege

 

ReidSearchlightLand

 

 

 

 

” As some may be aware, the Bundy Ranch in Nevada is having 500 plus head of free range cattle that have been fed on desert BLM land seized by the government. This is a long standing decades old dispute that pits the Bundy family, who have ranched this land since the 1870s, against a literal army of BLM SWAT forces supposedly there to protect desert tortoises.

  Our purpose here is to show how this siege must all eventually be linked to Senator Harry Reid, who literally controls everything that happens in Nevada. I wrote the only biography of Harry Reid (more below) which goes into his history of shady land dealings and use of the BLM. The best leverage the Bundys have is not against the BLM, but by making corrupt Harry Reid the focus of media attention. Because this is breaking, I will be updating this page continuously as I put information together, lots more to come.”

 

 

This webpage is loaded with research regarding Dingy Harry Reid and a host of his shady associates . Here is a particularly interesting couple of paragraphs:

 

 

” Harry Reid ‘owns’ 200 acres in Searchlight, all old BLM mining patent deeds inherited from his miner dad, all filled with desert Tortoise. His home is surrounded by the 14 abandoned mines that he owns�old sites with names like Spotted Horse, Diamond Wedge, and Cyrus Noble (so named after it was swapped for a bottle of Cyrus Noble whiskey). The question is why does he have ancestral claim to this land while the Bundys do not to their grazing rights?
  Reid’s claim to that land are mining patents, dependent on BLM favouritism since he no longer mines anything. Maybe he should be evicted, since his claims rest on old mining law from 1872. A patent is a parcel of claimed mineral-rich public land which the federal government sells to the claim holder for $2.50 or $5.00 per acre, as required by the 1872 Mining Law. A patent, or patented claim, is no longer public land; both the land and the minerals contained in it become the property of the patent holder. Congress has imposed a moratorium on new mining patents since October 1, 1994. Reid bought much of the land in 1973.”

Letter: ‘I Cannot Continue To Pretend Or Deceive The Members Of Our Community’

 

 

 

 

” Just days after the U.S. Department of Justice announced the results of an investigation into the Albuquerque Police Department, three members of the Police Oversight Commission are quitting.

  In their resignation letters to Mayor Richard Berry, Richard Shine, Jennifer Barela and Jonathan Siegel said they’re resigning because the civilian commission has no teeth.

“ The city attorney’s office addressed the POC on April 10, 2014, and stated that we have no power to decide against the APD Chief or against the independent review officer’s findings regarding citizens’ complaints,” reads Siegel’s letter. “I cannot continue to pretend or deceive the members of our community into believing that our city has any real civilian oversight.”

The US Is An Oligarchy, Study Concludes

 

 

Oligarchy-2

 

 

 

” The US government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country’s citizens, but is instead ruled by those of the rich and powerful, a new study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities has concluded.

  The report, entitled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens, used extensive policy data collected from between the years of 1981 and 2002 to empirically determine the state of the US political system.

  After sifting through nearly 1,800 US policies enacted in that period and comparing them to the expressed preferences of average Americans (50th percentile of income), affluent Americans (90th percentile) and large special interests groups, researchers concluded that the United States is dominated by its economic elite.

  The peer-reviewed study, which will be taught at these universities in September, says: “The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.”

  Researchers concluded that US government policies rarely align with the the preferences of the majority of Americans, but do favour special interests and lobbying organizations: “When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organized interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they generally do not get it.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

‘Hucksters Rely On Us As Their Welfare’

 

 

 

“ See, my theory of government is really simple. It’s all about the street. Government should keep things off the street – thugs, the insane, invading armies – and keep things on the street – like cement and lamp posts. Everything else, we can handle, which is why I’m bummed that 110 days of my salary goes directly into the mouth of a blob that turns my efforts into useless poop.” “

Cuomo, Amid Moreland Struggles, Realizes He Might Lose

 

cuomo arrogant

 

 

 

” After his worst week in office since becoming governor, Andrew Cuomo is now viewed for the first time by important Democrats as potentially vulnerable to Republican challenger Rob Astorino, The Post has learned.

  The changing sentiment results from the extraordinary criticisms Cuomo received last week from corruption-fighting Southern District US Attorney Preet Bharara — because of the governor’s summary dismissal of his anti-corruption Moreland Commission panel — and from an assortment of “good-government’’ over his transparently phony plan for a severely limited system of publicly financed elections.

“ It was a disastrous week for Andrew. He was being attacked all over town, and it appeared to be the culmination of not just weeks, but months, of eroding support for the governor from within his own Democratic base,’’ one of the state’s most influential Democrats told The Post.”

Michelle Obama Riverdances Through Dublin, Helps Rack Up $7,921,638.66 Vacation Tab For Taxpayers

Barack Obama, Michelle Obama

” When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations there are two primary challenges.  First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. And second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn.

  But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the Obamas have a disturbing lack of regard for taxpayer resources.

  Most recently, when reviewing the Obama family travel log, Judicial Watch recently obtained records from the U.S. Department of the Air Force and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security revealing that President Obama’s June 2013 trip to Belfast, Ireland, including a Dublin sightseeing side trip by Michelle Obama, her daughters, and her entourage, cost the taxpayers $7,921,638.66. (Per usual, and owing to the enormous public interest in Michelle Obama’s luxury travel, our discovery earned quite a bit of press coverage.)

Here’s the breakdown from the two agencies.

  •  According to the Department of Air Force documents, the flights to, from, and around Ireland for the June 17 – 19, 2013 trip totaled 33.6 hours at $228,288 an hour, which comes to a flight expense alone of $7,670,476.80  (These records came in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information lawsuit filed on January 13, 2014.)
  •  According to the DHS documents, the total cost for “security and/or other services” for the Dublin side-trip by Michelle Obama and her entourage was $251,161.86, including $55,004.85 at the Shelbourne Hotel and $70,855.44 at the Westbury Hotel. Vehicle rental charges were $114,721. (These records also came in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information lawsuit filed on January 13, 2014.)

  Now I can hear the White House’s defense. This was a business trip. It’s all about diplomatic relations, etc., etc.  And while this might at times be true for the president, it is certainly not true for the other members of the First Family.”

Police Officer Indicted On 12 Felony Child Sex Charges

 

 

 

Published on Apr 12, 2014

” GOLDSBORO, N.C. – An 18-year Goldsboro police veteran has been charged with 12 felony sex offenses and subsequently fired from the police department.

  Chad Everette Calloway, 43, was fired by the Goldsboro Police Department on Jan. 10 following an investigation by the State Bureau of Investigation.

  On Monday, he was arrested and charged with statutory sexual offenses against a minor.

  According to the Wayne County Superior Court, Calloway was indicted on 12 felony sex offenses, including five counts of statutory rape/sex offense of a 13-, 14- or 15-year-old; four counts of indecent liberties with a child; and three counts of sex offense in a parental role.

  Calloway had been with the GPD since April 19, 1995. The highest rank he held prior to his firing was captain.

  The officer’s termination letter cited a GPD order stating that “officers and employees of the department are prohibited from engaging in any immoral or indecent conduct.”

  The letter further cited a city policy defining detrimental personal conduct as “behavior of such a serious detrimental nature that the functioning of the city may be or has been impaired” and “the laws of any government may be or have been violated.”

  Calloway was released from the Wayne County Detention Center on a $500,000 unsecured bond.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gowdy: Dem Rep. Complaints About Six-Figure Salary ‘Laughable’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy Friday called it “laughable” that lawmakers are underpaid, blasting veteran Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran complaints about a six-figure salary for a job that’s “priceless.”

“ I know a lot of people in the world that are underpaid — in fact I live with one, who’s a schoolteacher,” Gowdy told FOX News host Greta Van Susteren in an interview posted by Mediaite.

“ But members of Congress are incredibly blessed … to have the jobs that we have. Nobody makes us run. Every two years we offer for public office, and if you don’t want to do it then don’t run.”

  Twenty-four-year veteran Moran, who is retiring at the end of the year, groused Thursday lawmakers are “underpaid” and that many cannot “afford to live decently.” 

  Gowdy called that hogwash. “The notion that you can make $174,000 in this country and be underpaid is laughable,” he added. “We are better off than 99.9 percent of the people we claim to work for. And I would be embarrassed to say that — given our job performance and our salary — that we are anything other than grossly overcompensated.” “

   Newsmax has the story on Jim Moran’s “laughable” notion that Congress is “underpaid” and Congressman Gowdy’s absolutely appropriate response .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tim Carney: Eminent Domain Often Leaves Broken Communities Behind

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Weeds and rubble cover 90 acres along Long Island Sound. A room with cinder-block walls sits locked in an empty in Brooklyn basement. And a gleaming industrial palace has failed to bring jobs to the banks of Ohio’s Mahoning River.

  These are monuments to failed central planning. Eminent domain, state and local subsides, and federal-corporate partnerships have yielded these lifeless fruits, failing to deliver the rebirth, community benefits and jobs they promise — but succeeding in delivering profits to the companies that lobby for them.

  The economic philosophy at work here isn’t capitalism or socialism. It’s corporatism: the belief that government and business should work together. You could describe corporatism as the view that profits provided by the market aren’t sufficient motivation for business, so government must put some icing on top. From another perspective, corporatism is government’s attempt to harness the profit motive for the goals of policymakers: let industry row the ship while politicians steer.

  Often, the corporatist ship founders on the rocks of false promises.

  Last decade, the New London Development Corporation — a quasi governmental body — crafted a plan for revitalizing the small Connecticut town. This plan involved a new Pfizer plant. The NLDC and local politicians sold the land to Pfizer for $10, gave the company tax breaks and pledged $26 million to clean up contamination and a local junkyard.”

Search Warrant For Former Elgin Lawmaker’s Office Sought Child Porn

 

keith farnham

 

 

” Federal agents sought evidence of child pornography last week when they seized computers from the Elgin district office of former state Rep. Keith Farnham, who resigned Wednesday, according to a search warrant released Friday.

  In addition, a federal agent on Thursday took a laptop computer that Farnham used in the Illinois House chamber, and last week agents removed a computer from a legislative office building next to the Capitol, according to the documents and an interview with a state technology official.

  Farnham handed in his resignation on Wednesday, saying he was “battling serious health issues for a number of years.” He had won the Democratic primary on Tuesday, running unopposed.

  Democratic leaders from the area will choose Farnham’s replacement.

  The federal investigation came to light last week when authorities acknowledged search warrants were executed at Farnham’s Elgin district office and home. Several computers and equipment were seized at Farnham’s district office, as well as a computer from his office near the Capitol, according to federal records obtained by the Tribune using the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.”:

 

 

     The Dems are well represented in the FBI caseload these days … first we had the FBI and IRS raiding Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox’s office as part of an ongoing corruption investigation , next up comes California Rep and anti-gun hypocrite Leland Yee on suspicion of gun trafficking charges and now we get a raid on that “tireless advocate of children’s rights” Keith Farnham being investigated for child pornography .

   What a week for the champions of the little guy , and who could forget Dingy Harry Reid’s adventures in nepotism and illegal campaign spending ?

Agribusiness Political Donations And Farm Bill Votes

 

 

mitchell-agribizz-small

 

 

 

” When governments dispense privileges such as insurance subsidies, price supports, or protection from foreign competition, they create incentives for firms to invest large sums of money in obtaining and maintaining these privileges, as the farm bill demonstrates.

  The fact that members who ultimately voted for the bill received so much more than those who opposed it may indicate that interest groups prefer to donate to members who are likely to support their issue. This is known as the “political man” theory of interest group behavior. On the other hand, the pattern of giving may indicate that political donations actually affect the final votes that members cast. This is known as the “economic man” theory of interest group behavior. Economists and political scientists have studied these questions extensively, and the balance of evidence suggests that there is some truth to both theories: interest groups do tend to give to candidates that already agree with them, but they also give to candidates in order to sway their votes.

  The final farm bill is expected to cost taxpayers $956 billion over ten years, but the economic costs will be much larger. These costs include not just the explicit taxpayer subsidy and the money wasted in seeking these privileges but also the higher prices that consumers will pay for some food and the resulting misallocation of capital.”

Harry Reid Has An FEC Problem

 

 

harry-reid1

 

 

” The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has some questions for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) concerning his campaign’s purchase of more than $16,000 in “holiday gifts” for donors. It turns out that the gifts were purchased from a jewelry vendor in Berkeley, Calif., who just happens to be Reid’s granddaughter, Ryan Elisabeth Reid, although her full name was not listed on Reid’s campaign filing with the FEC. Jon Ralston reports:

  The gifts, I have learned, were purchased from his granddaughter, Ryan Elisabeth Reid, who is a jewelry vendor in Berkeley, CA. The gifts were later passed on to donors and supporters, a Reid spokeswoman told me.

  Reid has previously been asked to explain holiday gifts to his Ritz Carlton doorman by the FEC. But in the letter from the FEC sent last week, the agency wants to know what payments of  $11,370 and $5,416 (UPDATED) were. “Itemized disbursements must include a brief statement or description of why each disbursement was made,” the letter said.

  Reid’s granddaughter is listed only as “Ryan Elisabeth” on the FEC report, which is attached here (see page 166). But her full name is Ryan Elisabeth Reid. … “

 

 

 

     So Dingy Harry not only uses campaign funds illegally , he uses them to enrich his own family member and then when caught says it was an oversight and it will be paid back . What a dirtbag … and Harry , when will you be addressing those rumors of pederasty ? They come from a “reliable” source , after all .

Federal Employees Using Government Aircraft For Hundreds Of Non-Official Missions, GAO Says

 

Federal Flight Fraud

 

 

” Senior federal officials use government airplanes for many non-official purposes, but agencies don’t track the trips, according to the Government Accountability Office.

  More than 1,700 aircraft are owned or leased by the federal government and are used to “accomplish a wide variety of missions,” including firefighting and law enforcement, according to GAO.

  From fiscals years 2009 through 2011, for example, the FBI didn’t report to GSA 395 unclassified non-mission trips that cost around $7.8 million, according to GAO. “

Rhode Island Speaker’s Work, Home Raided In Probe

 

 

 

 

 

” Law enforcement officials raided the office and home of House Speaker Gordon Fox on Friday as part of a criminal investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office, FBI, IRS and state police.

  Officials would not say who or what was being investigated, but authorities worked for hours inside the Democratic House speaker’s Statehouse office while state troopers stood outside.

  Authorities entered the office carrying an evidence bag and empty cardboard boxes Friday morning. Fox’s spokesman, Larry Berman, said state police had asked everyone working in the office to leave but he didn’t know why.

  Around 4 p.m., a dozen authorities exited Fox’s office carrying boxes and other items.

  Several news outlets reported that Fox returned to his home on the East Side of Providence on Friday afternoon, shortly after FBI agents removed boxes from it. He did not comment.

  A U.S. attorney’s office spokesman, Jim Martin, wouldn’t comment when asked whether the House speaker was being investigated. He said two federal search warrants had been executed, but he wouldn’t say whether they were connected to Fox.

  Fox is just the latest politician to be wrapped up in a criminal investigation in Rhode Island, a state with a long history of elected officials getting into trouble with the law. Former Independent Providence Mayor Buddy Cianci, one of the longest-serving mayors in U.S. history, went to prison in 2002 for racketeering conspiracy after a federal probe found he presided over widespread corruption in office. Former Republican Gov. Edward DiPrete went to prison in the 1990s after admitting he took bribes while in office.”

Accused Ex-Maine State Police Chief Tried To Commit Suicide

 

 

 

 

” When detectives with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office interviewed Andrew Demers Jr. a week ago, he was in the intensive care unit of Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

  The former chief of the Maine State Police had tried to take his own life shortly before the investigation into allegations he engaged in unlawful sexual contact with a 4-year-old girl got underway, authorities said. Interviewed at the hospital, Demers confessed to the conduct, according to the sheriff’s office.

  The 73-year-old grandfather, named a Legendary Trooper in 2003, was able to turn himself in Monday at the county jail, where he was charged with a single count of unlawful sexual contact, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

  The charges came about after someone notified the state police on March 10 about allegations Demers had engaged in unlawful sexual contact with the girl, a relative. State police forwarded the tip on to Cumberland County District Attorney Stephanie Anderson, who asked the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office to investigate.”

Kane Defends Decision Not To Prosecute Politicians In Sting Case

 

AG Kane Ignores Corruption

 

” Pennsylvania’s Attorney General is defending her decision to drop the case against five Philadelphia Democrats entangled in a sting operation.

  Attorney General Kathleen Kane held a press conference Monday. She says despite taped evidence of four representatives and a traffic court judge allegedly pocketing money or gifts from an informant, she won’t prosecute because the investigation was “botched.”

  State Reps. Michelle Brownlee, Louise Bishop, Vanessa Brown, Ronald Waters and former Judge Tomasine Tynes allegedly took money and, in one instance a Tiffany bracelet, from an informant seeking favors, but they have not been charged.

  The story broke in bold headlines in Sunday’s Philadelphia Inquirer. It revealed an informant, facing criminal charges beginning in 2010 visited the politicians offering cash and the one gift in return for votes or favors.

  All of the alleged transactions were recorded.”

Four Teens Just CALLED OUT Mayor Rahm Emanuel in A Way That Would Make Any English Teacher Proud

 

 

 

 

” When these four teens were trying to come up with something to perform in Louder Than a Bomb, a youth poetry festival that reaches teens through after-school programs, they took their task seriously. Through their spoken-word performance of ”Hide Your Schools, Hide Your Homes, Hide Your Children, Cause He’s Wrecking it All,” they unabashedly slammed Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel with a passion you can both see and hear.”

 

 

    The kids get a standing ovation for their poetry contest performance slamming the incompetence of Obama’s buddy , the mayor of Chicago , Rahm “Mr Wreck It”  Emanuel . Below is the complete text of the spoken word poem that comprised Team Englewood’s entry :

” Hide Your Schools, Hide Your Homes, Hide Your Children, Cause He’s Wrecking it All

Hammer in one hand paint brush in the other
Rahm Emanuel is single handedly destroying our city
Mr. wreck it Rahm
look what Chicago is becoming
bending the rules to fit in the lie of building a new Chicago
building new streets
when his own plan got some pot holes

Tearing down our dreams
its getting really windy in these streets
Red X’s mark the spots where his wrecking balls are next to drop

We are not included in the Blue Print of the New Chicago: we’re being pushed out
our buildings transformed into condos – and we know those AINT FOR US
Thermal shock is setting in from the whipping wind of the heartless sins
of the mayor

Norfolk Railroads is pushing us southern folk out
Homes replaced with tracks
that will be laid
where our heads used to
If dry wall could talk 
it would speak many prayers to keep our homes
now vacant lots that hold lots of remnants
of 60 years of backyard barbeques
baby showers
and when electric sliding was the super power of the summer
55th and Normal
we are losing all of this

Torturing, tormenting us as we choke on the ashes of our memories
*Cough Cough*
Let’s hope we don’t get sick
Because he’s closing all our clinics
He needs to get treated
And then maybe we can sew back on the other half of the middle finger 
that he has been giving us

Its almost as if he’s E Manuel of E-Limination
Exportation!
Extermination!
Eradication!

Step one: Take away our schools
Step Two: Put them out their home
Lastly: Destroy it all and 
Deny Deny Deny
But remember, to always keep a straight face when you lie!

Try to pour the cheap paint over our eyes while stealing dollars from under our mattresses 
There’s not enough? Close their schools
But he’s building a new DePaul stadium
Using our TIF funds to Transform the South Loop into the Promised Land of redevelopment 
and some river walk
of course downtown
The paint is starting to streak.
Building a new Chicago or extending a new lie!
How can a city so in debt blueprint something so expensive?

Banneker Elementary – Closed
Woods Elementary – Closed
Yale Elementary – Closed 

The paint is cracking:
From every west side basketball brotherhood
To south side sisterhood bonds through pom-poms
And every poetry team that had dreamed of being on this very stage
has been ripped apart,
Goodbye

Bad foundation for our future generations
struggling with 40 students in one class
so they learn from the streets
There’s not money for our schools, but, there’s enough to build a New Chicago 
But that New Chicago is NOT for us.
The paint is wearing thin and so was our patience
Irreparable damage has already been done

Time to stop the destruction of OUR city
Prevent the further corruption of our already twisted politics of Chicago

25% of Chicago school children won’t amount to anything 
25
50
75
100% sure that we will be something 
See Rahm we are mathematicians 
your lies are adding up
and this new Chicago is just another one of them “

McConnell On Tea Party: ‘We Are Going To Crush Them Everywhere’

 

 

McConnell Crush Tea Party

 

 

 

” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) predicted that GOP incumbents would “crush” insurgent Tea Party-backed candidates in primaries this year. 

“ I think we are going to crush them everywhere,” McConnell told The New York Times during an interview on Saturday. “I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.”

McConnell added: “I know this: Politics doesn’t like losers. If you don’t have anything to point to, it is kind of hard to keep it going.” “

 

 

    You’re right about one thing McConnell , politics doesn’t like losers … You and Boehner being perfect examples . Read more about where McConnell’s true allegiance lies here and be forewarned it is not with the people or fiscal responsibility …
