Obama shifts FBI from Counter Terrorism to Fraud
The Intellectual Redneck | February 11, 2009 | The Intellectual Redneck

Posted on 02/11/2009 3:38:47 PM PST by Askwhy5times

President Obama is shifting the focus of the FBI from counter terrorism work to fraud. This is in response to a backlog of 530 active corporate fraud investigations. I am all for investigation fraud. Perhaps, Obama could have them look into how he got such a sweetheart deal on his house in Chicago. He should look into all those high profile Democrats that seem to avoid paying their fair share of the tax burden. Of course, He will never do that. Instead, they will look into the cases that have come to light as a result of the economic meltdown. I am all for doing that. Banking criminals should got to jail just the same as other criminals. However, I don't want to shift the focus from counter terrorism. Our safety is first. Barack Obama should have had the Democrats drop some of the pork from the stimulus bill and pay for overtime for FBI agents to look into fraud. Just cutting the $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts would have paid for a lot of fraud investigation. Instead, President Obama is sacrificing our national safety. This shows where his priorities are placed.


TOPICS: Government; Politics
KEYWORDS: barackobama; counterterrorism; fbi
This makes you long for a return of President Bush. At least he knew the importance of our safety.

When the attack happens, it will be interesting to see how it is blamed on Bush...

Fraud?

Obama wants the FBI to investigate fraud?

What is he, nuts? (Yes, I know the answer to that)

Fine. Let them investigate fraud. Start with Rezko and Obama in Chicago.

There’s enough fraud there to put Obama in lockup for years.

They will find a way. Ironically, a whole lot of fraud victims are victims because they were looking for something for nothing, or at least a better deal than common sense would support, like Madoff’s victims.

Fraud is a serious crime but, I don’t recall ever fearing a fraudster would nuke my hometown.

After what the Princes of Wall Street have accomplished is there really any reason why the nutbars need to nuke us? Seriously, have you seen Detroit lately? Nuking it is not the worst thing that could happen there. Leaving it in the hands of the Democrats is.

Can't they do both?

"Chloe, I'm being chased by the FBI; I need an escape route."

"Jack, you gotta keep going straight but throw some gum at them. They can't chew and run after you at the same time."

There is a HUGE terrorist strike coming too this country. EVERY death, every drop of blood IS ON OBAMA'S SORRY HEAD. He should be held for murder when the first death occurs.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

New Terror Scare in Saudi Arabia - Alert for 85 al Qaeda Suspects
In what is being described as an "unprecedented global alert," the International Criminal Police Organization
today issued its largest-ever most wanted list for 85 terrorist suspects,
who are sought by Saudi Arabia for allegedly plotting attacks
against the country and for suspected links to al Qaeda.
"Never before has INTERPOL been asked to alert the world
about so many dangerous fugitives at one time,"
said Secretary General Ronald K. Noble in a statement.
"We know that we are approaching the
16th anniversary of the first World Trade Center bombing on Feb. 26, 2009
and therefore must be especially vigilant of fugitive al Qaeda terrorists."


"New Film Uncovers "Homegrown Jihad" group responsible
for nearly 50 attacks on American soil, operating 35 training camps across the nation,
but its name cannot be found on the State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations
because the terrorism is supported by the US State Dept and Congress....
The group openly recruits through various social service organizations in the U.S.,
including the prison system. Members live in compounds where they agree
to abide by the laws of Jamaat ul-Fuqra, which are considered
to be above local, state and federal authority."

Seriously, I don't doubt he is stupid enough to do this, but I need to see the source material. Thanks.

I’ve never seen Detroit but I’ll take your word for it. I think it’s time to stop playing games and start calling a spade a spade. We need to highlight the troubled cities and states and highlight who has been running them. We need to highlight the decent cities and states and who has been running them. By no means do I believe this will divide cleanly between Dems and Repubs, and that is why we need to highlight just what policies brought about the debacles or saved others. Unfortunately we have to contend with a seriously under-educated populace who can hardly think beyond American Idol voting. That means we have to be very creative but we can do it. Rush needs more support there on the airwaves and in the editorial papers and in the popular media. We need to get a better speakers’ bureau of conservatives like Thomas Sowell, Victor Davis Hansen (or is it Victor Hansen Davis?), Mark Steyn and others to produce videos we can use to convert the mind-numbed.

Don’t worry. This increases the likelyhood that more terrorist attacks and Democrat perp walks will occur under Obama’s watch.

This jerk and his conspirators in DC are ruining this country.

They are going to get thousands of innocent folks killed and bring our country to it’s knees.

Any attack on American soil will leave blood on the hands of the Liberal God, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the Liberal gutter scum within the US Congress.

For an evil political leader to secure his police, power, and enforcement apparatus is not without precedent.

Obama moves much faster than Hitler did.
