Massive scandal over in Europe over “Cap & Trade” style “Carbon Offset Credit” trading.

Reported ties to organized crime as Euro-criminals follow in Al Gore’s footsteps.

Follow the Money!

August 14, 2008

As the man who wrote the screenplay said, “Follow the Money.”
In this case, the trail leads to the stink of corruption and democrat so-called “leader” Nancy “SanFran Nan” Pelosi.

By way of Absinthe & Cookies, comes this story of corruption and greed.

Under pressure from federal lawmakers concerned about high energy prices, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission proposed a rule prohibiting petroleum-market manipulation, giving the agency authority to levy fines of up to $1 million per violation a day.

Pelosi, who owns stock in CLNE, a company founded by T Boon Pickens and LIBERAL activist WR Hambrecht, stands to make MILLIONS on an $50,000 to $100,000 investment which may include anywhere from 3,000 to 22,000 shares, depending on the price she paid

Here is what is irrefutable. The company is valued at $632 MILL but if it succeed in its Proposition 10 proposal for California, it would increase its value at least tenfold and if the Pickens Plan, which calls for hundreds of BILLIONS of dollars, goes through its value could be increased a hundredfold!

Pelosi’s manipulation of the market is of a most decisive kind, she is using the excuse of “saving the planet” to refuse to allow the market, and not a central panning committee or government, to determine what kind of energy is produced where

More corruption at the United Nations

July 3, 2008

No real surprise there. More like “business at Usual.”
George Russell of Fox News points out that United Nations bureaucrats are breaking their own “ethics” rules to hide massive corruption.

…[a] whistleblower charged that [United Nations Development Program] had funneled millions in hard-currency to the regime of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il and allowed North Korean government employees to run key aspects of its development program there. Then, he claimed, UNDP retaliated by firing him.

In UNDP’s case, a vivid insight into the potential for abuse was provided by the North Korean investigative report, which was made public in early June. UNDP immediately hailed the 353-page report as vindication—even though the document reiterated at great length that UNDP had systematically violated its own rules in hiring North Korean government employees to fill key UNDP jobs in the country, illegally handed over millions in hard currency to the government of Kim Jong Il, and ignored the laws of the U.S. and other countries in handing on sensitive “dual use” civilian-military technology to the Kim regime, even as North Korea was building and testing a nuclear weapon.

So, the UN is violating its own ethics rules, handing “millions in hard currency” to Communist dictators, punishing whistle blowers and denying they did anything wrong. Yup, sounds like business as usual at the United Nations.

Connecticut emulates Chicago

June 8, 2008

Chicago, long under democrat domination, is known as the place where the dead vote early and often.

According to this story, Connecticut is trying to emulate the corruption at the Windy City.

Journalism professor Marcel Dufresne, at the University of Connecticut, led a class investigation into dead voters and said his group of 11 students discovered 8,558 deceased people who were still registered on Connecticut’s voter rolls. They discovered more than 300 of them appeared somehow to have cast ballots after they died.

“We have one person who appeared to have voted 17 times since he died,” Dufresne said.

Dufresne said there is no evidence of any election fraud, but the number of dead voters “shows the system is vulnerable and it shows that people who are clever and have a little cooperation in the town level, you could use this and get people to vote for people who died.”

Actually, the fact that live people are voting using the names of dead people who are still on the registered voter polls is a clear indication of election fraud, as well as a clear violation of the civil rights of every legally registered live voter.

Of course, the state government is is full spin (i.e lying) mode:

Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz is adamant that “actually no dead people voted.”

“I want to be very clear about that,” she said, explaining that while votes were cast and counted in the names of the dead, “there was no voter fraud at all in the state of Connecticut.”

It is hardly surprising that Secretary Bysiewicz is a democrat. Obviously, the actual dead people didn’t vote. Obviously live people illegally used the still active records of the dead people to commit voter fraud.
Why is democrat Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz obviously lying? Probably because most of the live people committing voter fraud using the records of dead people are voting democrat.

History repeats

May 9, 2008

According to the AP:

Myanmar’s junta seized U.N. aid shipments Friday meant for a multitude of hungry and homeless survivors of last week’s devastating cyclone, forcing the world body to suspend further help.

The aid included 38 tons of high-energy biscuits and arrived in Myanmar on Friday on two flights from Bangladesh and the United Arab Emirates.

“All of the food aid and equipment that we managed to get in has been confiscated,” U.N. World Food Program spokesman Risley said.

This is what was happening in Somalia back in the early 90’s.
The government in Myanmar doesn’t care about what happens to the citizens, out side of those needed to support their power base.
My guess is that they will use this as an excuse to kill off, through neglect, those that they don’t consider necessary. That is why they don’t want any out side observers. They just want the materials, which they will only give to those they want kept alive and use the rest to build their power base.

United Nations Watch

May 5, 2008

Daniel Hannan at the UK Telegram has an update on the latest United Nations actions.
At the top of the list, so-called UN “peacekeepers” in the Congo have been encouraging elephant poaching!

Other UN highlights include:
– betraying the Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica.
– illicitly running oil-for-food scams with Saddam.
– ordering its local commander not to seize the arms caches that were about to be used for the Rwandan genocide.
– UN officials been accused of selling arms to the Congolese militias.

Remember kids, democrats wants to base US foreign policy on what these guys want.

UN covering up its involvement in sex slave trade

April 28, 2008

From the BBC:

The UN has covered up claims that its troops in Democratic Republic of Congo gave arms to militias and smuggled gold and ivory, the BBC has learned. . . . These are not the only allegations to have been brought against peacekeepers in DR Congo.

In December 2006, former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan said Moroccan troops had been involved in widespread sexual abuse.

“There have been crimes such as rape, paedophilia and human trafficking,” he said, shortly before leaving office.

HT to Mr. Reynolds, who correctly points out that this won’t get much MSM play since there is no Anti-American angle.

HRC buying votes

January 24, 2008

No surprise to anybody who has paid attention to standard Clinton/DNC tactics.
From CNS News:

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) secured more than $1 million in federal funding last year for a Harlem-based non-profit whose leader gave her presidential campaign a major endorsement last weekend.

Clinton — who is aggressively competing for the black vote with her chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) — touted the endorsement of Rev. Calvin O. Butts III, a prominent black leader and pastor of one of the oldest black churches in America, the Abyssinian Baptist Church of Harlem.

The $555-billion FY 2008 omnibus spending bill approved last month by Congress included 11 appropriations bills with almost 1,000 earmarks. Clinton teamed with senior New York Sen. Charles Schumer and New York Rep. Charles Rangel, both Democrats, to provide three earmarks for the Abyssinian Development Corporation (ADC).

The ADC is a separate non-profit community development organization chaired by Butts that focuses on increasing quality housing, delivering social services, and boosting economic and educational opportunities in Harlem.

Clinton backed an $839,000 earmark to the development corporation’s programs for at-risk youth; $446,500 for the organization to expand youth after-school programs; and $146,000 for the group’s social service work.

HT to Ace, who notes: “the Clinton White House is like a subway, you have to pay to get a ride.”

Another criminal HRC donor

January 18, 2008

Not on the level of Norman Hsu, but with ties to the Mexican Drug cartels.
Not surprising, HRC wasn’t the only democrat this guy gave drug money to.

HT to Ms. Malkin.
