The Corruption keeps rolling along

April 5, 2009

Corrupt democrat Congressman John Murtha is continuing his pattern of pork barrel spending.

Four of the earmark requests from Murtha’s office are for current or former clients of a lobbying firm, the PMA Group, that is currently under federal investigation for connection to possible “straw” donations to Murtha and other Democratic members of the House.

Murtha also has not yet apologized to the cleared US Marines he insulted.

AIG execs pressured to donate to democrat Senator Dodd

March 30, 2009

The Washington Times has the story on how the Senate Banking Committee Chair, democrat Chris Dodd, collected large donations from AIG employees.

Mr. Dodd’s campaign quickly hit pay dirt, collecting more than $160,000 from employees and their spouses at the AIG Financial Products division (AIG-FP) in Wilton, Conn., in the days before he took over as the committee chairman in January 2007. Months later, the senator transferred the donations to jump-start his 2008 presidential bid, which later failed.

Now, two years later, Mr. Dodd has emerged as a central figure in the government’s decision to let executives at the now-failing AIG collect more than $218 million in bonuses, according to the Connecticut attorney general – even as the company was receiving billions of dollars in assistance from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). He acknowledged that he slipped a provision into legislation in February that authorized the bonuses, but said the Treasury Department asked him to do it.

The employees were told, “If you agree,” to write checks for $2,100 from themselves and their spouses and to send them to Mr. Dodd’s campaign within four days. They also were to ask the senior members of their management teams to do the same and send copies of their checks to the company.

The Dodd campaign collected $162,100 from AIG-FP employees and their spouses within six weeks of the e-mail, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics and the Federal Election Commission.

Note that the employees were told to send copies of their checks to the company. That may be legal, but it clearly crosses an ethical line.

Marion Barry, tax cheat

March 27, 2009

Former democrat D.C. Mayor, and former crackhead, Marion Barry has joined the ranks of many prominent democrats.

He is, like our Dear Leader’s Secretary of the Treasury, a tax cheat.

According to the Washington Post, Barry “owes the federal government more than $277,000 in back taxes and skipped at least six months of recent payments on taxes owed to the D.C. government, according to federal authorities.”

HT to Mr. Reynolds

Another One Bites the Dust!

March 26, 2009

Yet another one of BHO’s selections, this one for Deputy Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, has removed his name from the running. It was disclosed that Jon Cannon was on the board of a nonprofit group faulted for mishandling federal grant money.

A 2007 EPA inspector general’s report on the foundation alleged a variety of irregularities involving $25 million in federal grants to assess water quality problems, including those at farms and pork processing facilities. The problems with accounting, improper cash advances and similar violations stretched from 1998 to 2005, according to the report.

About those AIG Bonus

March 18, 2009

Those $150 million in bonus are perfectly legal and are protected by our Dear Leader‘s bailout bill pushed through by the democrat controlled congress.
If you want to be angry at somebody, direct your ire at Senator Chris Dodd, the democrat who received the largest amount of campaign donations from AIG out of the entire congress.
Let’s go the the wording in the bill:

`SEC. 111. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE.

[. . .]

`(iii) The prohibition required under clause (i) shall not be construed to prohibit any bonus payment required to be paid pursuant to a written employment contract executed on or before February 11, 2009, as such valid employment contracts are determined by the Secretary or the designee of the Secretary.

As the nice folks at Redstate point out, let’s look at the bonus our Dear Leader got from AIG.

Senator Barack Obama received a $101,332 bonus from American International Group in the form of political contributions according to Opensecrets.org. The two biggest Congressional recipients of bonuses from the A.I.G. are – Senators Chris Dodd and Senator Barack Obama.

Any laws to “tax away” the AIG bonuses should also target the money AIG gave to Dodd and BHO.

Update: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are planning on handing out millions in bonuses. These Government Sponsored companies are at the root of the current finanical crisis, with their democrat driven reckless policy of pushing loans for those who clearly cannot afford them. Where is the outrage?

The two companies, which together own or back more than half of the home mortgages in the country, have been hobbled by skyrocketing loan defaults. Fannie recently requested $15 billion in federal aid, while Freddie has sought a total of almost $45 billion.

Michael Williams, Washington-based Fannie Mae’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, is due to receive a $611,000 retention award this year on top of his $676,000 base salary.

Williams received a $260,000 retention bonus last year and is in line for another $429,000 next February, for an expected total of $1.3 million, according to the SEC filing.

David Hisey, the company’s deputy chief financial offer, is expected to receive a $517,000 retention award this year in addition to his $385,000 salary and $160,000 cash bonus. He received a $220,000 retention award last year and is due to receive $363,000 next February, for a total of $1.1 million

A question of competence.

March 11, 2009

Pejman Yousefzadeh writes about what he calls “The Great Vetting Disaster” that has been the Obama administration.

2009 is the anti-2008 for Team Obama. Whereas, last year, the Obama campaign was able to demonstrate its supreme competence at running a campaign, raising money, and using technology to further Barack Obama’s political goals and personal ambitions, once Team Obama moved into the White House, it seemed that its hold on managerial competence disappeared. Thus, we have a Treasury Secretary whose tax delinquencies were not discovered by the Obama vetting system, and who is Home Alone at the Treasury Department because the White House can’t get its nominees confirmed quickly enough to provide the Treasury Secretary the personnel support he needs to deal with the greatest economic crisis since the recession of the early 1980s.

Add to the list the numerous Team BHO picks who have had to drop out over non-payment of taxes.

And in the latest personnel snafu, the selection of Charles Freeman as the Chairman of the National Intelligence Counsel has been withdrawn.

Ahhh…Freeman, a bought and paid for asset of the House of Saud who said the Communist Chinese government was too soft on the students protesting for democracy at Tiananmen Square. Personally, I think he was a perfect pick for the Obama administration.
There is more detail on this insightful selection of our Dear Leader.

50 Days That Changed the World

March 10, 2009

Gateway Pundit has correctly identified those fifty days as the “Obama Disaster.”
Here are some of the highlights.

** Obama is on track to spend more money than any person in the history of the planet.
** Obama and Pelosi’s stimulus bill was the largest spending bill in the history of the planet.

** He’s lost at least 3 administration nominees due to tax fraud.
** He’s promoted a tax cheat to run the IRS and Treasury.
** He’s insulted America’s greatest ally, Great Britain.
** He’s reneged on missile agreements with allies Poland and the Czech Republic.

** The Obama stock market had its worst January in 113 years.
** The stock market had its worst February since 1933.
** The Dow has dropped faster under Obama than any other new president in 90 years.
** Obama’s budget more than doubles the national debt held by the public, and adds more to the debt than all previous presidents — from George Washington to George W. Bush — combined.

There is more, much more.
Barak Obama, Worst President Ever.” Yup, he’s working to steal the crown from fellow democrat Jimmy Carter.

Attorney General Holder must be proud.

March 8, 2009

Our democrat Dear Leader‘s Attorney General Eric Holder must be so very proud of the Detroit City Council. They had an open discussion on race.

Speakers advocating for the deal were taunted by the crowd and cut short by Council President Monica Conyers [the wife of House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers], who presided over the hearing like an angry bulldog; whites were advised by the citizens to, “Go home.”

Opponents were allowed to rant and ramble on uninterrupted about “those people” who want to steal Detroit’s assets and profit from the city’s labors.

A pitiful Teamster official who practically crawled to the table on his knees expressing profuse respect for this disrespectful body was battered by both the crowd and the council.

When he dared suggest that an improved Cobo Center would create more good-paying jobs for union workers, Conyers reminded him, “Those workers look like you; they don’t look like me.”

Desperate, he invoked President Barack Obama’s message of unity and was angrily warned, “Don’t you say his name here.”

This gentle readers, is how “open discussions of race” go in the Age of Obama.
