See Jon is not ‘Seeing the light’ according to today’s show on The Five’s Greg Gutfeld. He is covering his arse because he fried Bush for using Executive Privilege in 2007. Jon was singing a whole different tune hoping you did not see THIS video…
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – With great fanfare, President Obama signed Executive Order 13519 on Nov. 17, 2009, establishing a Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force to be led by Attorney General Eric Holder with the aim of prosecuting fraud and recovering assets in the economic debacle that began one year earlier.
In 2010, the Mortgage Fraud Working Group organized under the executive order issued its first annual report, boasting that the number of mortgage fraud defendants charged by the U.S. Attorneys’ Offices more than doubled from 526 in fiscal year 2009 to 1,235 in fiscal year 2010. A similar increase was reported in the number of mortgage fraud cases charged, going from 267 in 2009 to 656 in 2010.
However, WND research has demonstrated that the mortgage fraud cases pursued by Holder’s Department of Justice have typically targeted homeowners charged with making fraudulent loan applications. Largely ignored are the financial institutions that made the loans and prominent Democrat donors and colleagues of Obama administration officials.
High friends in high places
As WND has previously reported, Holder has overlooked possibly fraudulent “loan to own” equity recapitalization loans Credit Suisse made to some 15 or more luxury resorts or to various principles involved in the transactions, including supermarket billionaire Ron Burkle, a long-time Democratic Party operative with a history of providing financial support to top Democrats, including Bill and Hillary Clinton.
WND has also reported that Credit Suisse is a client of the Washington-based law firm that Holder left as a partner to become attorney general and Lanny Breuer left as a partner to head of the Justice Department criminal division under Holder.
The firm, Covington & Burling, represents “a Who’s Who of big banks and other companies at the center of alleged foreclosure fraud,” Reuters reported Jan. 20.
In addition to Credit Suisse, they include Bank of America, Citibank, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo & Co. and at least one other bank among the top 10 largest mortgage servicers.
Deputy Attorney General David Ogden on March 24, 2009 at the podium of the James Brady(!) Press Room in the White House, with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano in the background, as seen on the full C-SPAN video from which this was copied (link at bottom). This is the smoking gun that DIRECTLY links Obama to the Fast and Furious “Gunrunner” operation.
Here is the text of Ogdens’ remarks in their entirety:
“DOJ’s Drug Enforcement Administration, which already has the largest U.S. drug enforcement presence in Mexico with 11 offices in that country, is placing 16 new DEA positions in Southwest border field operations specifically to target Mexican trafficking and associated violence.
“The DEA is also deploying four new mobile enforcement teams to specifically target Mexican methamphetamine trafficking, both along the border and in U.S. cities impacted by the cartels.
“DOJ’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is increasing its efforts by adding 37 new employees in three new offices, using $10 million in Recovery Act funds and redeploying 100 personnel to the Southwest border in the next 45 days to fortify its Project Gunrunner which is aimed at disrupting arms trafficking between the United States and Mexico.
“ATF is doubling its presence in Mexico itself, from five to nine personnel working with the Mexicans, specifically to facilitate gun-tracing activity which targets the illegal weapons and their sources in the United States.”
REP. NANCY PELOSI (D-CA), MINORITY LEADER: The attorney general of the United States is the person responsible for making sure that voter suppression does not happen in our country, that issues that relate to the civil liberties of the American people are upheld. These very same people holding him in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote.
Don’t forget they’re going after Eric Holder because he is supporting measures to overturn voter suppression initiatives in the states. This is no accident. It is no coincidence (INAUDIBLE)
~ Yah Nancy you ARE brain challenged! We have been watching her demise from the day she picked up her large gavel. Pf zeroed in on the time frame she lost her ever loving mind, but we now have to ask, where are your meds Nancy?! You truly need to be hospitalized if you think your ‘strategery’ with this, as Rep. Gowdy so succinct stated: “Mind-Numbingly Stupid’ comments, will work.
Stretch Pelosi is using the “head on, head on, head on” strategy. She treats her constituency like idiots because they are idiots. She is selling them hate, the same way corporations sell products. – KingDingaLing090
Background: WASHINGTON — The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of an influential Latino electorate that has been vocal in its opposition to administration deportation policies. The policy change, announced Friday by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation. It also bypasses Congress and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, a long-sought but never enacted plan to establish a path toward citizenship for young people who came to the United States illegally but who have attended college or served in the military. The extraordinary step comes one week before President Barack Obama plans to address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials’ annual conference in Orlando, Fla. Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney is scheduled to speak to the group on Thursday. Obama plans to discuss the new policy Friday afternoon from the White House Rose Garden. Under the administration plan, illegal immigrants will be immune from deportation if they were brought to the United States before they turned 16 and are younger than 30, have been in the country for at least five continuous years, have no criminal history, graduated from a U.S. high school or earned a GED.
“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations … of immigrants brought here illegally as children … through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed.”
— President Barack Obama, March 28, 2011
Those laws remain on the books. They have not changed. Yet Obama last week suspended these very deportations — granting infinitely renewable “deferred action” with attendant work permits — thereby unilaterally rewriting the law. And doing precisely what he himself admits he is barred from doing.
Obama had tried to change the law. In late 2010, he asked Congress to pass the DREAM Act, which offered a path to citizenship for hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants. Congress refused.
To serve his re-election needs, President Barack Obama is violating his obligation to enforce the law. – By Charles Krauthammer for Washington Post Writers Group Posted June 22, 2012 at midnight
Executive privilege is the power claimed by the President of the United States and other members of the executive branch to resist certain subpoenas and other interventions by the legislative and judicial branches of government.
THE CASH: Word spread, leading to a fund drive that began with a modest goal of $5,000 to help the woman take a nice vacation. By Friday afternoon, the drive had sailed past $550,000, with donations from more than 25,000 people.
An online feel-good fundraising effort for a bullied bus monitor has reached nearly half a million dollars — and is growing.
More than $450,000 has been donated to Karen Klein, a 68-year-old grandmother of eight who appears on a 10-minute video earlier this week being berated and bullied by four seventh-graders on a bus operated by the Greece Central School District, near Rochester, N.Y.
The four students, including a police officer’s son, hurl repeated insults and threats at the grandmother, calling her fat and at one point suggesting that her children commit suicide. Klein told “Fox & Friends” during an appearance Thursday that her eldest son did, in fact, take his life 10 years ago.
The outpouring of support for Klein follows a recent surge in awareness of bullying that has brought the issue from the classroom to the stage and screen to the White House.
Capt. Steve Chatterton of the Greece Police Department said Klein informed investigators that she will not seek criminal charges against the four students from Athena Middle School in Rochester.
Karen Klein, the school bus monitor who was bullied by her students in a disturbing viral video spoke out today on “Fox & Friends.”
Klein described the confrontational event and how she tried to keep her calm.
“I don’t like confrontations like that,” said Klein. “I didn’t want to do anything to hurt anybody. That wouldn’t have looked good either. I probably would have been fired actually if I’d have done anything violent. So I just restrained myself and tried to pretend that they weren’t doing this.”
Making The Bus Monitor Cry:
I cannot watch this! I am livid and incredibly sad!
Lets Give Karen -The bus monitor- H Klein A Vacation!
She doesn’t earn nearly enough ($15,506) to deal with some of the trash she is surrounded by. Lets give her something she will never forget, a vacation of a lifetime!
A Father of one of the students said his son shouldn’t be arrested because the students faces are in the video and thats punishment enough. SAY WHAT?! Karen is SO generous she will NOT press charges. This father and other’s should donate heftily to her vacation!!! ~ JP
