” The U.S. attorney’s office in Springfield has been busy the past few years investigating a variety of fraud schemes involving state grants. Thirteen people have been charged so far, six who have pleaded guilty.

Two of them have ties to President Barack Obama. One is the daughter of his controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Another was chief of staff to Obama’s longtime friend Eric E. Whitaker when Whitaker was Illinois’ public health chief.

In all, prosecutors are alleging a total of $16 million in fraud involving state health or commerce department grants and contracts.

Here’s a brief look at each of the criminal cases that have been filed, which prosecutors built with help from the Chicago offices of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Internal Revenue Service, as well as from the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office’s inspector general:

Priest Arrested For Fraud At Vatican Bank

 

 

 

” Italian police on Friday arrested a prelate, a financial broker and a former agent of the Italian Secret Service on corruption charges as part of a plot to transport 20 million euros from Switzerland to Italy in a private plane.

The priest, Monsignor Nunzio Scarano of Salerno, had already been suspended from his position as a member of the administration that manages the Vatican’s real estate assets (the APSA) about a month ago, as part of a separate money laundering investigation in connection with the probe into the Institute for Works of Religion (IOR), as the Vatican bank is popularly known.

An investigation into Scarano’s bank account at the IOR led to the discovery of the suspected racket.”

The scheme involved smuggling drugs and cell phones into Baltimore City Detention Center.

Thirteen female corrections officers, seven inmates and five alleged co-conspirators are charged with racketeering, money laundering and possession with the intent to distribute.

The affidavit says the corrections officers helped members of the notorious Black Guerilla Family gang smuggle cell phones, marijuana, prescription pills and cigarettes into the jail to sell to other inmates and make thousands of dollars.”

 

 

 

 

 

Bank of America Reportedly Froze Gun Makers Account

 

 

 

 

” American Spirit Arms owner, Joe Sirochman posted on his Facebook page a statement that is truly amazing. He discusses a problem he was having with the bank as they were holding his merchant account funds for ‘further review’.

After many hours on hold with the bank trying to get to someone who could help he was told by a bank manager, “WE BELIEVE YOU SHOULD NOT BE SELLING GUNS and PARTS ON THE INTERNET”. Needless to say this angered Mr. Sirochman!

We are at a point now in America if we don’t stand up for our Constitutional Rights we are going to lose them forever. When private companies (Bank of America) decide not to honor their obligations to their ‘law abiding’ customers (American Spirit Arms) just because they don’t like what they are doing it is time for us (Americans who believe in the Constitution) to stop supporting those businesses (Bank of America).

Here is his post on the American Spirit Arms Facebook page:

All,
My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms and I wanted to share my recent experience with Bank of America .(which we have been doing business with for over 10 years)…. “

 

 

  This isn’t BoA’s first foray into the world of politics in general and firearms in particular . Witness their treatment of McMillan firearms and illegal alien credit cards and mortgages .

 

And let us not forget BoA’s cozying up to Drug Lords …

 

Mexican Drug Cartel Laundered Money Through BofA, FBI Alleges

FBI: Drug Cartels Use Bank of America to Launder Money

American Banks ‘High’ On Drug Money: How a Whistleblower …

 

 

  So apparently while Bank of America is more than happy to facilitate illegal immigration , drug lords and money laundering it cannot in good conscience do business with legal American businesses that engage in the legitimate firearms trade . Remember this and choose your bank and financial advisors accordingly .
