Den of Thieves

It’s been a while since I have had anything to say, but this came through my Inbox and I thought it was worth pondering. Especially those happy with the “CHANGE”

From My Inbox:


The amount of federal taxes that Secretary  of the Treasury Timothy  Geithner (D) failed to pay during his employment at the International Monetary  Fund despite receiving extra compensation and  explanatory brochures that  described his tax liabilities.True:


The amount of money that the  head of the  powerful tax-writing committee, Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), was forced to report  on his taxes after the discovery that he had not reported income from a Dominican Republic rental  property. His excuses for the failure started with blaming his wife, then his accountant and fin ally the fact that he didn’t speak Spanish.True

The  INCREASE in the amount of petty cash each of our Congressional representatives voted to give themselves in January 2009 during the height of an economic  meltdown.  That’s a $40 + million INCREASE! See video here from Fox

$133,900:The amount Fannie Mae “invested” in  Chris  Dodd (D-CT), head of the powerful Senate Banking  Committee, presumably to repel  oversight of the GSE prior to its meltdown. Said meltdown helped touch off the current economic crisis. In only a few years time, Fannie also “invested”  over  $105,000 in then-Senator Barack Obama.True:


The amount of back taxes and interest that Cabinet nominee Tom Daschle (D)  was forced to cough up after the vetting process revealed significant, unexplained tax liabilities.True: Wall Street Journal

The approximate amount of  income and  deductions that Daschle (D) was  forced to report  on his amended 2005 and 2007 tax returns after being caught cheating on his taxes. This includes $255,256 for  the use of a car service, $83,333 in unreported income, and $14,963 in charitable contributions.True: Wall Street Journal $800,000:

The amount of  “sweetheart” mortgages  Senate Banking Chairman Chris Dodd (D-CT) received from Countrywide Financial,  the details for which he has refused to release details despite months of  promises to do so. Countrywide was once the nation’s largest mortgage l ender and  linked to Government-Sponsored Entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Their  meltdown precipitated the current financial crisis. Just days ago in Pennsylvania , Countrywide was forced to pay $150,000,000 in mortgage assistance following “a state  investigation that  concluded that Countrywide relaxed its underwriting standards to sell risky loans to consumers who did not understand them and could not afford them.”True:

The  estimated amount of donations by Denise Rich, wife of fugitive Marc Rich, to Democrat interests and the William  J. Clinton Foundation in an apparent quid pro quo deal thatresulted in a pardon for Mr. Rich. The pardon was reviewed and blessed by Obama Attorney General and then Deputy AG Eric  Holder, despite numerous requests by government officials to  turn it down.



The amount of TARP money provided to community bank OneUnited despite the fact that it did not qualify for funds, and was “under attack from its regulators for
allegations of poor lending practices and executive-pay abuses.”  It turns out that Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), a key contributor to the  Fannie Mae meltdown, just happens to be married to one of the bank’s former directors.True: Wall Street Journal


The upper range of net worth Rep.. Allan Mollohan (D-WV) accumulated in four years time according to
The Washington Post  through earmarks of “tens of  millions of dollars to groups associated with his own business  partners.”True: Washington Post

$2,000,000,000:($2 billion) the approximate amount of money that House Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-WI) is earmarking related to his son’s lobbying  efforts. The son, Craig Obey, is “a top lobbyist for  the  nonprofit group” that  would receive a roughly $2 billion component of the  “Stimulus” package..

and this as a list of these related stories:


($3.7 billion) not to be outdone, this is the estimated value of various defense contracts awarded to a company controlled by the husband of Rep. Diane Feinstein (D-CA). Despite an obvious conflict-of-interest as “a  member  of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee, Sen. Feinstein&nb sp;voted for appropriations worth  billions to her husband’s firms?.”True:

$4,190,000,000:($4.19 billion) the amount of money in the so-called “Stimulus” package  devoted to fraudulent voter registration ACORN group under the auspices of “Community
Stabilization Activities”. ACORN is currently the subject of a RICO suit in Ohio ..


$1,646,000,000,000  ($1.646  trillion):The approximate amount of annual United  States exports endangered by th e  “Stimulus” package,  which provides a “Buy American” stricture. According to international trade experts, a “US-EU trade war looms”: which could result in a worldwide economic depression reminiscent of that touched off by the protectionist Smoot-Hawley Act.


Background:  Smmot-Hawley Act:

It’s becoming a culture of corruption and stupidity.  In addition, these folks appear to be above the law.  All of the aforementioned are still in office, living like the royalty they think they are.

Remember:  This all happened in just the FIRST QUARTER, folks!
