Skip to comments.Breaking: Fugitive Obama Fundraiser Linked to Fast and Furious
Posted on 02/07/2012 11:03:35 AM PST by therightliveswithus
Some developing news in the case of Juan Jose Rojas Cardona, who is a fugitive on drug and fraud charges. In 2009 it was discovered that he was involved in a plot to assassinate a rival and bribe Mexican officials.
This has gone public, as has his $200,000 in fundraising done for Barack Obama. Obama has now returned the money, but the scrutiny on Cardona continues. It now appears that Cardona's links to the organized crime world also ties him to the DEA, which ran Operation Fast and Furious. Cardona was allegedly involved with a top drug cartel across the border, which laundered millions with the help of the American government.
Just recently, his brother Carlos attempted to his Juan pardoned by the Democratic Party out of Iowa:
As recently as January of last year, one of Mr. Cardonas brothers in Chicago, Carlos Rojas Cardona, arranged for the former chairman of the Iowa Democratic Party to seek a pardon from the governor for Pepe Cardona, according to prosecutors in that state. None was forthcoming.
Wikileaks exposed a US Consulate cable that showed five million dollars in bribes that the Cardona brother had paid to Mexican politicians, and also exposed that they may be linked to the Beltran Leyva drug cartel!

For your list.
Correct. It might be too soon to equate this with Watergate. But if we add up all the scandals and corrupt actions that we know about Obama - he makes Nixon, Clinton, LBJ et al look like grade school pranksters.
Maggie get your information over here!
IMO we’ve got the missing link. What say you?
Nah, nothing will ever explode around Obama. The MSM will make sure of that.
Not only are they in bed with him — they have assumed the missionary position (no pun intended).
Did you see this? (sigh)
No wonder Obama was so eager to give the money back (supposedly)...
This is just one more piece in a whole frikkin’ jigsaw puzzle forming in a pool of blood that makes one ugly damn picture.
birds of a feather
..and the bank of choice for drugs and money rackets? Chinese mega-bank HSBC.
Dr. Jerome Corsi is investigating that along with a named former employee and hundreds of HSBC documents supplied by the former HSBC employee.
Corsi has already seen a possible connection between HSBC and F&F -- also Dr. Corsi just announced that he is investigating how Obama stimulus money may have been distributed to supporters using HSBC.
Yes, I saw it, but there seems to be no confirmation, (at least I couldn’t find any,) so I didn’t ping it. Speculation like that without proof, should it turn out to be untrue, makes us look bad.
I AM disppointed in Issa though...and I heard THAT with my own ears.
Good one Army Air Corps...
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Could explain why they're aggressively going after Murdoch.
That's sort of like English; only different.
I read it three times, and I STILL don't know what happened.
it might well be true, and with boner, i would expect it, but MM is correct to be aware of spreading unconfirmed info...
the big problem remains that *if* Issa has all these nukes, why wait to use em ???
a half dozen fed agencies and a half dozen overlapping criminal enterprises by said feds, SCREAMS for some perp walkin...
