Most Corrupt Attorney General In History Concocts Yet Another Crooked Scheme

Holder Cut Left-Wing Groups In On $17 Bil BofA Deal – Investors Business Daily

.

.
Extortion: Radical Democrat activist groups stand to collect millions from Attorney General Eric Holder’s record $17 billion deal to settle alleged mortgage abuse charges against Bank of America.

Buried in the fine print of the deal, which includes $7 billion in soft-dollar consumer relief, are a raft of political payoffs to Obama constituency groups. In effect, the government has ordered the nation’s largest bank to create a massive slush fund for Democrat special interests.

Besides requiring billions in debt forgiveness payments to delinquent borrowers in Cleveland, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Oakland, Detroit, Chicago and other Democrat strongholds – and up to $500 million to cover personal taxes owed on those checks – the deal requires BofA to make billions in new loans, while also building affordable low-income rental housing in those areas.

If there are leftover funds in four years, the settlement stipulates the money will go to Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Account (IOLTA), which provides legal aid for the poor and supports left-wing causes, and NeighborWorks of America, which provides affordable housing and funds a national network of left-wing community organizers operating in the mold of Acorn.

In fact, in 2008 and 2009, NeighborWorks awarded a whopping $25 million to Acorn Housing.

In 2011 alone, NeighborWorks shelled out $35 million in “affordable housing grants” to 115 such groups, according to its website. Recipients included the radical Affordable Housing Alliance, which pressures banks to make high-risk loans in low-income neighborhoods and which happens to be the former employer of HUD’s chief “fair housing” enforcer.

BofA gets extra credit if it makes at least $100 million in direct donations to IOLTA and housing activist groups approved by HUD.

According to the list provided by Justice, those groups include come of the most radical bank shakedown organizations in the country, including:

• La Raza, which pressures banks to expand their credit box to qualify more low-income Latino immigrants for home loans;

• National Community Reinvestment Coalition, Washington’s most aggressive lobbyist for the disastrous Community Reinvestment Act;

• Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America, whose director calls himself a “bank terrorist;”

• Operation Hope, a South Central Los Angeles group that’s pressuring banks to make “dignity mortgages” for deadbeats.

Worse, one group eligible for BofA slush funds is a spin-off of Acorn Housing’s branch in New York.

It’s now rebranded as Mutual Housing Association of New York, or MHANY. HUD lists MHANY’s contact as Ismene Speliotis, who previously served as New York director of Acorn Housing.

IRS Ethics Lawyer Faces Disbarment For Lying, Embezzlement

IRS Ethics Lawyer Accused Of Embezzlement, Might Lose Law License – Big Government

.

.
A lawyer that works in the IRS ethics office faces charges that she lied to a court-appointed board looking into whether she embezzled several thousand dollars of her client’s money in a case she worked as a personal injury attorney before joining the IRS.

IRS ethics lawyer Takisha McGee is accused of diverting several thousand dollars she was supposed to pay to healthcare providers for a client in a case she took several years ago.

McGee is listed as a Section Manager of the Legal Analysis Branch on the IRS website.

Despite these public proceedings, the IRS refuses to comment on the case and continues to have McGee give lectures on ethics.

But theft isn’t all she stands accused of. McGee is also accused of lying to the D.C. Court of Appeals’ board of professional responsibility empanelled to review her case.

Additionally, she is accused of essentially intimidating her former client into writing a letter asking the board to dismiss the charges against her.

McGee’s client sent a letter to the board in 2011 saying that she was dropping any case against her one-time lawyer and urged the board to do the same. But the client later testified that McGee threatened to begin subpoenaing the client’s family members if the case continued.

“In its 43-page report, the board detailed the personal injury case, which resulted in an $8,900 insurance settlement,” The Washington Times reported this month. “But after receiving the settlement check, she failed to pay about $3,000 combined to two medical providers whom she was supposed to reimburse for treatment given to her client, according to records.”

Thus far the missing funds have not been located.

The board said it found “clear and convincing” evidence that McGee lied to them and that there was no reason to recommend any lesser punishment than a full disbarring.

“In addition to intentionally misappropriating third-party funds, respondent also violated a number of other ethics rules and gave false testimony during the hearing,” the board wrote in its ruling.

Corruption Update: Wisconsin John Doe Investigation Was Full-Blown Anti-Conservative Fishing Expedition

Revealed: Wisconsin John Doe Investigation Was Full-Blown Anti-Conservative Fishing Expedition – Legal Insurrection

.

.
We’ve covered the abusive anti-conservative Wisconsin “John Doe” proceedings many times before.

The short story is that two separate proceedings were commenced under the auspices of Democratic District Attorneys in order to try to take down Scott Walker.

John Doe No. 1 concerned Walker’s time as County Executive and ended without finding any wrongdoing by Walker himself.

John Doe No. 2 concerned Walker’s time as Governor and recall election. Both a state court judge and a federal judge found that even if everything the investigators claimed was true, it was not illegal. This John Doe No. 2 resulted in a federal lawsuit by two of the targets alleging that the investigators violated the targets’ constitutional rights.

Some documents released Friday by the federal Court of Appeals reveal just how abusive this John Doe No. 2 was.

The investigators conducted a widespread fishing expedition through the otherwise private records of numerous conservative activists, as described by M.D. Kittle of Wisconsin Reporter, who has followed the case more closely than anyone (h/t Instapundit):

‘Retaliation’: Docs show state prosecutors’ launched mini-NSA probe of state conservatives

Conservative targets of a Democrat-launched John Doe investigation have described the secret probe as a witch hunt.

That might not be a big enough descriptor, based on records released Friday by a federal appeals court as part of a massive document dump.

Attorneys for conservative activist Eric O’Keefe and the Wisconsin Club for Growth point to subpoenas requested by John Doe prosecutors that sought records from “at least eight phone companies” believed to serve the targets of the investigation. O’Keefe and the club have filed a civil rights lawsuit against John Doe prosecutors, alleging they violated conservatives’ First Amendment rights.

Subpoenas also demanded the conservatives’ bank records, “emails from every major private email provider” and other information in what some have described as a mini-NSA (National Security Agency) operation in Wisconsin.

“In fact, Defendants’ submissions confirm and expand upon the scope and intensity of retaliation previously demonstrated,” O’Keefe’s attorney wrote in documents ordered unsealed by the 7th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.

The documents raise serious concerns about the tactics of Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm, two of his assistant DAs and others involved in the investigation targeting dozens of conservatives.

We are in a dangerous place when prosecutors can identify the target first, and then try to find a crime.

Hey Wisconsin conservatives. You’re not paranoid, Democrats really are out to get you.

The Left can justify and excuse any crime it seems

All they have to do is throw the word justice behind their cause, ideal, perversion, moral retardation, or Hell, even crimes. And no matter what they actually did, know two things. First, they are victims, and second, they can find idiot celebrities to rally to their cause Stacy McCain has this story about a man, woman, tranny cold-blooded butcher who wishes to hide behind a wall of “Transformative Justice” . After all, what is slaughtering a child when compare to “Fill-in-the-Blank Justice”?

Ebony Williams was a 13-year-old girl from Harlem. In August 1993,Ebony was brutally murdered by two men:

Investigators said the girl was believed killed in an apartment in Hunts Point on Aug. 22. She may have been raped, they said, and her throat was cut and her body was stomped and packed in a large cardboard box by two men.
The two, joined by a third man who became a police informer in the case, carried the box a few blocks to Whitlock Avenue and East 165th Street, leaving it under the Sheridan Expressway near Bruckner Boulevard. One of the killers later returned, doused the box with gasoline and set it afire, the police said.
A passenger on a No. 2 train, running on elevated tracks nearby, saw the flames and called the police. Detectives found the body badly burned. There were no clothes, jewelry or other means of identification. “All I saw was that her hair had been worn in corn rows,” Sergeant Garvey recalled.

It took two weeks to identify Ebony Williams by dental records. By then, police had already arrested Ebony’s killers, including Luis Morales, who was then 18 years old. Morales is doing a life sentence in Attica, where he now calls himself “Synthia China Blast,” and had apparently convinced at least one gullible journalist that “she was a former drug dealer and Latin King gang member . . . convicted in 1996 for a gangland murder she says she didn’t commit.”

Two things about many criminals. First, they are often very persuasive, especially to the gullible. Second, as McCain points out THEY LIE!

Really, what’s a few convenient self-serving lies in comparison to raping and murdering a 13-year-old girl? But sympathy for criminals is very fashionable for liberals, so whenever a criminal can make up a story that will gain them pity, there is always a bunch of liberal fools who are willing to believe their stories.

Liberals are controlled by two things, their emotions, and their perverse need for everything and everyone to be equal. So, the whole morality thing is kinda tough at times. And, of course, their emotionalism leads them to be duped far more easily than normal people.

There are entire tax-exempt organizations dedicated to convincing liberals that these criminals are actually victims of “social injustice.” One such organization is the Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP), which advocates on behalf of “transgender” criminals.

Note what I said earlier about throwing the word “justice” or in this case “injustice” behind words like social, economic, environmental, transformative, and so on. This is how the Left deceives. They love them some “justice”. But, again, Liberals often refuse to understand that the way the Left defines justice, is not the way that normal people define it. Thus, good intentions, can be used to defend evil.

The SRLP managed to convince Emmy-winning actress Laverne Cox that child-killer Luis Morales/”Synthia China Blast” is a victim, and Coxrecorded a video reading a letter from Luis/”Synthia“:

“I was born and raised in the South Bronx, however since age 15 I’ve been raised in prison. In fact — since age 16 — I’ve only been home once, in 1993, for three months. I’ve been in prison ever since. I’m 38-years-young.” . . .

“I am a political transgender woman/prisoner. I strongly support the rights of LGBT brothers and sisters in the community who are imprisoned also.”

“They may not live in a cage 23 to 24 hours a day like I do, year after year, with no fellow prisoner contact, but they too face the constant torment that LGBT prisoners face in here.”

“Lack of adequate medical care, abusive and evasive treatment by law enforcement officials, denial of basic human rights, the freedom to live among the straight society without fear of retaliation.”

Playing up the victim-of-transphobic-discrimination angle, Luis/”Synthia” was able to con people into believing he/she was a “political prisoner,” and Laverne Cox got sucked into this vortex of stupidity. Cox posted her video Tuesday at the SRLP site, and it took three days for the truth about Luis Morales’ crimes to hit the Internet, at which point Cox demanded that SRLP take down the video.

To Cox’s credit, she at least realized she had been fooled, unlike many celebrities who refuse to admit their mistake. The troubling thing about her demand that the SRLP take down the video, which they did, is the response the SRLP gave

Laverne Cox partnered with us on our End Solitary campaign by reading a letter from SRLP member Synthia China Blast in a video, but has since requested that we remove the video from our site because of her concerns about Synthia’s convictions. We understand her decision is based on concerns about violence against children. We also understand that it is challenging to respond to the reality of violence within our communities, and is an ongoing challenge many of us face in our lives and work. While we understand this struggle, we also reaffirm our support for Synthia China Blast, and our position on prison abolition and transformative justice.

Ah, even though this monster SLAUGHTERED, a child, they still support this evil beast! Crimes? Murder? Rape, Setting a child’s body on fire? What is any of that when they are pursuing, wait for it, Fill-in-the-Blank Justice, right?

SRLP is aware that there are people within and outside of the transgender and LGB communities who question our unwavering support of our incarcerated members, regardless of their underlying convictions.  We firmly believe that regardless of a person’s crime, no one should have their human rights violated or be subjected to state sanctioned torture. Supporting any individual person is not about pardoning their crime, but about protecting the rights of all incarcerated people and ending the use of systematic torture as “punishment”.

Well, there you go folks. Sure this piece of human filth slit the throat of a child, but being convicted of that crime? That is just an “under lying” issue don’t ya know. No, the REAL problem here is that there is no Transformative Justice, THAT, to these bottom feeding cretins is the real issue!

Go read the rest, and you might want to bring a vomit bag with you. McCain highlights yet another “victim”, whose “community” was so oppressed by Transformative Injustice that they had to turn to child porn. Of course those innocent children are victims too, their lives are destroyed, but again, I suppose the SRLP has no time to pursue “justice” for them. This whole defending murderers and perverts is time consuming.

 

 

Another Day, Another Riot (Edward L. Daley)


In a press briefing today, President Asshat Obama said he “understands the passions and the anger that arise over the death of Michael Brown.” I suppose if you’re a racist dirtbag, you’d be angry about somebody who happens to have the same skin color as you getting shot by a cop with different skin color. Then again, if you’re a normal, decent American, you’d probably react like I have to the information made available thus far, which is to not judge the case until all the facts are made known. So, like our glorious leader, I too understand the passions and anger of the rioting cretins in Ferguson; they’re lawless parasites who automatically assume the cops are at fault whenever a black guy is shot dead by a police officer.

Obama also stated that his Justice Department – headed by the most corrupt, racist Attorney General in modern history – has opened a civil rights investigation into the incident. What he doesn’t explain is why he finds it necessary to open any sort of federal investigation into a police shooting where no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of the officer involved has yet to be revealed.

Let’s take a look at what we actually KNOW happened, not what we think may have happened.

1. On August 9, 2014, Michael Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson were caught on surveillance video apparently stealing cigars from a convenience store in Ferguson, Missouri a short while before being confronted on the street by police officer Darren Wilson.

2. Michael Brown was an intimidating figure of a man who was over 6’4″ tall and weighed nearly 300 pounds.

3. Officer Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown.

4. Michael Brown had the cigars he allegedly stole on his person when he was killed.

5. A preliminary, private autopsy performed by Dr. Michael Baden – former forensic medical examiner for the New York State Police – found that Michael Brown was shot four times in the right arm and twice in the head.

6. The fatal shot entered through the top of Michael Brown’s head, suggesting that he was bent over when the shot was fired.

7. All the shots came from the front.

8. Michael Brown had marijuana in his system when he was shot.

So, is it possible that the officer in question shot Michael Brown just because he doesn’t like black people? Sure, but it’s also just as likely that the shooting was completely justified, or that it was unjustified but not racially motivated. The fact is we don’t know what happened in this case, and until more evidence comes to light, it is irresponsible for anyone to be speculating about it, or calling for investigations by any entity other than the Ferguson Police Department.

As for the people currently plundering the town of Ferguson, don’t think for a minute that they’re doing so simply to make a political or social point about poor, innocent Michael Brown. No, they’re also doing it because they’re crooks, and crooks are always looking for an excuse to take things that aren’t theirs and destroy other things just for the fun of it.

Trust me on this, normal, law-abiding people don’t go on violent rampages no matter how morally outraged they may claim to be. Only criminals do that.

Irony Alert: Philadelphia ‘Peace On The Streets’ Concert Ends With Man Murdered In Parking Lot

Anti-Crime Concert In City Of Brotherly Love Ends With Man Murdered In Parking Lot – Independent Journal Review

.

.
In Philadelphia, people organized an anti-crime concert called “Philly Support Philly: Peace on the Streets.”

However, unfortunately some of the attendees didn’t get the message. One 20-year-old man was shot twice in the parking lot of the concert and later died.

From the AP:

A man was fatally shot outside a Philadelphia concert being held to promote peace and stem violence in the city, police said Thursday.

The shooting happened at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday outside the Dell Music Center in the city’s Fairmount Park, according to investigators.

Officials said the 20-year-old man was apparently either arriving at or leaving the “Philly Support Philly: Peace on the Streets” concert when he got into an argument with someone in the parking lot.

While this is absolutely tragic, the reaction from the Philly Police Commissioner is telling of the state of crime in the City of Brotherly Love:

Police commissioner Charles Ramsey told reporters that such a shooting outside an event aimed at stemming violence comes as no surprise.

“People who put on these concerts are well-intentioned,” Ramsey said. “The problem is, it doesn’t always reach the street thugs that we deal with on a daily basis. This is what they do, and they don’t care if it’s at a peace rally, in church – they could care less.”

“So I’m not frustrated and I’m not surprised,” he said.

No word yet if there have been any arrests made in this case. However, police will be checking surveillance video in order to identify a suspect.

Corruption Update: Federal Judge Demands Answers After IRS Contradicts Sworn Testimony On Lois Lerner’s Hard Drive

Judge Demands Answers After IRS Contradicts Sworn Testimony On Lerner’s Scratched Hard Drive – Daily Caller

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan Thursday ordered the Internal Revenue Service to come up with new answers after IRS employees contradicted sworn testimony about damage to Lois Lerner’s hard drive.

.

.
Sullivan ruled that “the IRS is hereby ORDERED to file a sworn Declaration, by an official with the authority to speak under oath for the Agency, by no later than August 22, 2014″ on four issues: the IRS’ attempted recovery of Lerner’s lost emails after her computer allegedly crashed, bar codes that could have been on the hard drive, IRS policies on hard drive destruction, and information about an outside vendor who worked on IRS hard drives.

Recent documents from nonprofit group Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the IRS, which Sullivan is presiding over, showed that IRS technology officials contradicted sworn testimony about damage to Lerner’s hard drive.

Aaron Signor, an IRS technician that looked at Lerner’s hard drive in June 2011, said in IRS court filings that he saw no damage to the drive before sending it off to another IRS technician, leading some in the media to suggest that the lost emails scandal is basically over. But Signor’s statement, issued in response to the Judicial Watch lawsuit, does not jibe with sworn congressional testimony.

The Daily Caller reported that Lerner’s hard drive was “scratched” and then “shredded,” according to a court filing the IRS made to the House Committee on Ways and Means.

The IRS technology official who served as the source of the “scratched” and “shredded” revelation is believed to have looked at the hard drive after Signor.

Sullivan’s order seems to have been motivated by the obvious contradiction. Judicial Watch said that Sullivan made the order because the IRS’ new court filing featuring Signor’s statement was a “joke.”

“In an extraordinary step, U. S. District Court Judge Emmett Sullivan has launched an independent inquiry into the issue of the missing emails associated with former IRS official Lois Lerner,” Judicial Watch said in a statement. “Previously, Judge Sullivan ordered the IRS to produce sworn declarations about the IRS email issue by August 11. Today’s order confirms Judicial Watch’s read of this week’s IRS’ filings that treated as a joke Judge Sullivan’s order.”
