What was McAuliffe doing investing in this get-rich-quick scheme?
Conservative Intel ^ | 10/11/13 | David Freddoso

Posted on 10/11/2013 6:02:12 AM PDT by The Old Hoosier

What I find most interesting here is that McAuliffe and a bunch of important people and entities — including Flanders’ law firm, the former Cranston Chief of Police, a large-scale bookie once sentenced to prison, and a monsignor who was a top official for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence — all found their way into this same get-rich-quick scheme. It’s smells a lot like something designed for people who think they’re too important to follow the law.

I’m not a lawyer, but I can tell you this — if anyone ever approaches you with a guarantee that he can invest in the stock market with no risk, you say no, because there’s obviously something illegal going on.

Don’t worry about Terry. He’ll be able to sweep this all under the rug once he’s elected and it’s not like he was investing in cattle futures or anything.

McAuliffe had "no clue" the deal might be shady.

Attorney Joseph Caramadre, Cranston, RI, has been charged with sixty-six counts, including wire fraud, mail fraud, conspiracy, identity fraud, aggravated identity theft, money laundering, and witness tampering, in connection with an investment scheme in which Caramadre and co-Defendant Raymour Radhakrishnan allegedly victimized elderly and terminally-ill individuals.

This may or may not be a scheme. It has been a common practice for many years to offer cash to terminally ill people so that they will have money for medical expenses or however they choose to use it. In exchange the entity making the offer continues to pay the premiums on the policy and is designated the beneficiary.
If, however, the scheme involves impersonating a terminally ill person for a medical screening then it is clearly an illegal scheme.

MCAULIFFE'S DIRT PILE Candidate McAwful's a triple threat---(1) he was lacerated for his sophomoric debating skills, (2) he worships abortion, and, (3) he's a Democrat ***-licker, lying-in-wait to profit from his high-level political connections.


<><> McAuliffe is apparently polling well among the "dearly departed" b/c a lawsuit Democrats filed says “the [VA State Board of Elections] is rushing to complete the purging of dead voters in time to have the desired effect on the upcoming gubernatorial make sure that those who no longer live here don’t vote here."

<><> The "dearly departed" are also Hillary voters----the buzz is Terry is 2016 Hillary's place-keeper. If elected, graverobber Terry will insure she has the votes to win. (That's after he rapes the VA state treasury.)

Mmmmm....I just can't wait til the Clintons show up in VA for their old buddy McAuliffe. As we all know, the Democrat party is a thriving criminal enterprise. Billy Boy Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the (cough) "Clinton Global Initiative Foundation". Notwithstanding the bombshell news that (1) the Clinton Foundation had employed a Muzzie terrorist....and.... (2) the Clinton Foundations were outed by the NYT for shady dealings.

A Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting Mideast terrorist activities at the same time, explains why the Clintons just remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."

The "Holy Family."

The Clintons' 24/7 self-promotion--a familiar do-good liberal schtick: whining about "helping" the needy, and hoping to make a buck on it.

The Clintons' shady proclivities are unveiled in the recent NYT story. Corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. The Clintons didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---never even had a home to call their own. Now they're multi millionaires.......the connivers have perfected the scam WRT gaming the govt system for themselves.


<><>Candidate McAuliffe made a campaign promise to exempt existing abortion clinics from having to comply with state health and safety standards. Recently, a number of clinics in the state were closed after they failed to live up to state standards.

Last year, according to Women Speak Out, more than 80 violations were discovered inside Virginia abortion facilities. But that doesn't seem to stop McAuliffe from defending them. This clearly shows his concern is for the well being of the abortion industry and not women.

Here's what he said: "I can do what I talked about, issue a guidance opinion by March to keep the remaining health centers open. I can do that myself as Governor. That's why I said I'll do that by March to keep the remaining, uh, Norfolk is closed. Fairfax is closed, or closing, so there will be 18 left. Only one of those 18 actually meet the, the requirements so they'll all close if I don't do that. "

"But I will issue what's called a guidance opinion by mid-March which will say that these regulations, I have, the General Assembly wasn't definitive with the Board of Health as to the rules, I can give a guidance opinion to the Board of Health to grandfather in those remaining clinics to keep them open. That's why this election is so important, and I will do that."


<><> SEC investigating illegalities in company co-founded by Terry McAuliffe / By David Sherfinski

The SEC is investigating the green car company founded by Va gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe over concerns that it allegedly (illegally) guaranteed returns for its investors. The SEC has subpoenaed bank records of GreenTech’s funding arm, the McLean-based financing company Gulf Coast Funds Management, LLC.

Documents attached to a July 31 letter from Sen. Charles E. Grassley also raise more questions on the extent of the interaction between officials at the two companies and Alejandro Mayorkas, the director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in DHS.

DHS is investigating whether Mr. Mayorkas assisted in approving an investor visa application submitted by Gulf Coast, even after the application was denied and an appeal was rejected.

Mr. Mayorkas, Obama’s pick to be the next No. 2 at DHS, testified last week that the extent of his interaction with Mr. McAuliffe was one meeting in which he heard his complaints about investor visas being held up.

Mr. Grassley said it went further than that.“Contrary to the impression left by your answer, documents indicate that both before and after that meeting, you actually engaged in nearly a dozen contacts with Gulf Coast Funds Management between 2010 and 2013, including direct communications with Gulf Coast’s attorneys,” the Iowa Republican wrote to Mr. Mayorkas. “That one meeting with Mr. McAuliffe was clearly not the extent of your interaction on that matter.”

Officials at the two companies and did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday. A spokesman for the McAuliffe campaign noted that Mr. McAuliffe left GreenTech in 2012 and that he has no knowledge of any investigation. News of the SEC investigation was first reported Friday by The Wash/Post.

The documents include forwarded e-mails from Mr. McAuliffe to Douglas Smith, an official in DHS’s office of the Private Sector, that were forwarded to Mr. Mayorkas and an e-mail from Mr. Mayorkas himself saying that face-to-face meetings for particular cases are not appropriate.”As the Director of this Agency, I do not adjudicate cases and am not the proper audience for a telephone call or a meeting about a particular case,” he wrote to Gulf Coast’s general counsel earlier this year. “I will forward your e-mail to the appropriate individual in the Agency.”

USCIS handles cases involved in the EB-5 program, where foreign investors put up between $500,000 and $1 million for American companies in exchange for legal status.

Govt attorneys wrote that such a meeting would violate the Administrative Procedures Act. “I think it also raises an impartiality issue if we entertain pre-decisional meetings of this sort with particular applicants and petitioners,” USCIS’s Ethics Officer wrote. “It is not a concern to have meetings with particular industries, trade groups, bar associations, etc., on systemic issues that are not case specific, so long as we are willing to meet with all.”

Gulf Coast is run by Anthony Rodham, the brother of former Secy of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, and is the finance arm of GreenTech Automotive Inc. Mr. McAuliffe founded GreenTech in 2009 and quietly stepped down as chairman in Dec — a fact only revealed in April in response to an inquiry from a Politico reporter.

<><> Wall to wall media coverage about an $18K gift to Cuccinelli, but this corrupt scumbag carpetbagger McAuful has skimmed tens of millions of dollars from corrupt deal after corrupt deal (the Clinton-era Global Crossing heist is just the start) and not a peep from the press.

He probably wouldn’t have any money if it weren’t for schemes. Remember Bill Clinton gave him a sweet deal on a fiber optic cable company.

Illegal? WHO CARES ,, What do you think HFT is? What about all those “proprietary trading gains” that GS , Chase , WF and others use quarterly to bump their numbers come from ,,, it’s not illegal if you are big enough.
