I posted it as well, but mine got wiped. It has made me wonder why Glenn Beck has not been supportive....and also makes me wonder how in the hell he got his money to create a network....considering he was not wealthy before 2001.

"Bundy [ a son of Cliven] said his family has approximately 500 cattle in Clark County. He said the BLM had contracted with rustlers who were already on his father’s property rounding up livestock to bring to the auction near Austin.

“We’re trying to stop them before they even make it here,” Bundy said. “If they do make it here, I’ll be here to claim them.”

Bundy said the cows had been refused in auction houses throughout Nevada, California and everywhere else in Utah.

“We want people to know R Livestock is willing to sell stolen cattle. This auction yard contracted with the BLM to sell cows stolen off our ranch,” Bundy said. “These are our cattle. They’re private property of my father, Cliven Bundy.”

Bundy said he believed R Livestock owner Scott Robins would receive a 3 percent commission, and had contracted to receive another $500,000 extra on top of the selling price."

The 78th (2015) Session of the Nevada Legislature will begin on February 2, 2015. They are now in the interim period between legislative sessions.

As far as the Governor goes, I don’t know much about him but so far I haven’t been impressed by anything he’s done.

"Utah Governor Herbert stepped in and forbid them from bringing the cattle into Utah without the legally required health and brand inspections (which again, require Bundy's signature) and that no feral cattle are allowed to be imported at all (per Utah statute).

Because Bundy claims ownership over maybe 350-500 head of branded cattle, the other 500-700 estimated head of cattle would all be considered feral."

Harry is also Mormon is he not? Back during the campaign, I do remember seeing photographs of Reid and Romney, and their wives, at a memorial service I believe, having a Very amiable conversation : /

As I am not a big listener/reader of Beck, I cannot say if he has been as aggressive over the years, in exposing Reid, as he has been others on the left?

Also don’t know many of Mormon faith, but wonder if there might be a code of a sort, regarding speaking ill of other members of the church?

Dear Lord, please share Your strength, and guidance.

""9. Hydrologist’s Report

Boomer had supplied a memorandum to the board with background information and the District’s history on subsurface diversions for existing and future use of Virgin River water and the purchase of 5 acres associated with the Virgin River 140, LLC. Boomer stated that three monitoring wells, approximately 100 feet in depth and completed in the Virgin River alluvium have been drilled and are included in the Hydrologic Monitoring and Mitigation Plan (HMMP). Two of the wells are located on private land owned by Cedar Development Company LLC through an easement and the other collector well is located near Bunkerville Well #2 within the public easement.

Boomer further explained how and where the secondary collector well to divert Virgin River surface water was installed and the funding that was made available for construction; the ownership of the properties and easements on these properties; and the water quality of the secondary system.

Michael further informed the board that under the current BLM, Las Vegas Field Office (LVFO) Resource Management Plan (RMP) the area downstream of Bunkerville to the Riverside Bridge 85 is part of the Virgin River ACEC, in which site type facilities are not allowed; and that there is virtually no location to divert the surface water to serve future development with the exception of the private land downstream of the Riverside Bridge. The NDOT Right-of-Way is one of the few areas that can cross the Virgin River and that several points of diversions and existing water rights held by VVWD are anticipated to cross the Virgin River in the NDOT Right-of Way. Boomer further informed the board of the costs expended thus far on this 5-acre parcel. Boomer continued to explain that the monitoring wells have been a critical part of the Virgin River Hydrologic Monitoring Mitigation Plan (VRHMMP); the process of VVWD and BOR drafting a new cooperative agreement and funds of 1.3 million available for the installation of a horizontal collector well that is an important diversion structure for VVWD supplying water resources to the western portion of the service area that could also be installed on this 5-acre parcel.

Sounds like there's money laundering going on........BLM Whistleblower Rusty Hill uncovered corporations and shady land deals connected to Reid Bunkerville LLC, Zion Bank Corp, and BLM lands surrounding the Bundy properties.

Every account held by Reid Bunkerville LLC (essentially secret bank accounts), and Reid-related energy/land accounts at Zion Bank Corp need to be unveiled ASAP.

Nevada taxpayers, ranchers, cowboys, cowgirls, militias, cattlemen, landowners, taxpayers, Bundy sympathizers, Oathkeepers and other patriots must demand the Bank Secrecy Act be employed to uncover and prosecute all of Reid's shady dealings.

Under the Bank Secrecy Act, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering, and that might be indicative of govt fraud, embezzlement, and other financial crimes.

“The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the public from harm by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, terrorism, tax evasion, govt fraud, bank fraud, or other unlawful activities,” the special agent in charge for Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, explained.

L/E needs to examine the above-referenced bank and Reid-related accounts. ASAP.

<><> Joint bank accounts might be used to facilitate the transfer of of govt funds. Govt monies may pay for personal and private expenses, credit cards, real estate subsidies and vehicle purchases.

<><> To cover their tracks, the principled might create fake invoices to show that money deposited into accounts was being used for legitimate purposes.

The scheme might be advanced by issuing phony statements of payments from federal and state sources that actually covered the transfer of funds for the principles own use.

<><> L/E is directed to get ahold of: (1) copies of Reid checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including e-mail, contracts, loan agreements, and, (8) any other books or records. L/E should also explore (a) monies paid to brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.

<><> L/E should scrutinize bank accounts for suspicious activities: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) frequent requests for withdrawals.

<><> Bank records might also show diversions to other LLcs, secret offshore accounts, to operate personal businesses. Fraud can also be facilitated by withdrawals, gift cards purchases, credit card purchases and intrabank transfers from seemingly legit accounts into personal accounts on orders of the accountholders.

<><> A huge tipoff is whether bank withdrawals support payments for real estate, investment and stock holdings, vehicles, offshore travel and so on.

REFERENCE When Madoff went to jail, investigators found Ponzi King Bernie had stashed billions offshore---into a labyrinth of financial and business entities.

COLLUSION AND CONSPIRACIES GALORE Some $8.9 billion was funneled to Madoff through a dozen so-called feeder funds based in Europe, the Caribbean and Central America......a labyrinth of hedge funds, management companies and service providers that, to unsuspecting outsiders, seemed to compose a formidable system of checks and balances. But the purpose of this complex architecture was just the opposite: the feeder funds provided different modes for directing money to Madoff in order to avoid scrutiny.

Years ago - before Disney moved into central Florida a company came down and started buying up land in the area. The cover story was a gas plant was going to be put in... My father said that story didn't make sense and started checking around land records. My father was right. I learned from his way of seeing and I know Rusty's right. He knows what he's talking about...

I wouldn't be surprised if Reid didn't have major dirty hands... but very carefully concealed and ‘technically’ within the law. A good reporter could check some of this stuff out - but democrats own them - so it won't happen.

Seems that ordinary men get elected to congress and within a few short years they're multimillionaires. I suspect many of them don't 'fight for the right' be be congressmen because they want to be public servants but because they want to feather their own nests...and accumulate power.

Rusty might also be right about the use of the IRS as personal 'thugs for hire' - without having to 'hire' them...Nothing would surprise me...

Liz - I enjoyed your comments on this thread.

I’m sure there’s money laundering going on (as posted in #42) but what perked my interest was the land transfers with no money changing hands or so it was recorded on the titles.

CNBC's American Greed did the segment on a huge land fraud in Florida---an elaborate scheme that fooled retirees, seasoned real estate agents and big companies alike. The list of alleged victims is still growing long after the crooks fled to Russia.

Allegations include claims that the Florida-based Sky Development Group:

- Forged deeds and sold more than $1M n worth of property it didn't own in one Citrus County development, Citrus Springs.

- Took millions of dollars for land without turning over the property to the buyers.

- Referred buyers to a fake title company managed by the crooks to close land deals.

- Took money for new homes it never built or never finished.

Rory Reid is a lawyer; he claims he received "legal fees" via an account at Bonneville Bank. The fees from I Works’ general ledger that same day shows $50,000 was paid to RMR Consulting for “legal fees.” Another $200,015 was paid Dec. 2..

We need to study the complex scheme one NY law firm engaged in before it was closed down for fraud.

====================================================

3/7/14 NY DAILY NEWS REPORT By Shayna Jacobs --Manhattan law firm top executives indicted in book-cooking scheme....three top executives of shuttered Manhattan firm firm Dewey & LeBoeuf were indicted Thursday in a $200 million book-cooking operation. They pleaded not guilty to grand larceny, scheme to defraud, securities fraud and falsifying business records.

Principles pleaded not guilty to grand larceny, scheme to defraud, securities fraud and falsifying business records. The fraud involved swindling big cash from insurance companies and financial institutions over a four-year period. --SNIP--

SOURCE Jefferson Siegel/New York Daily News http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/law-firm-execs-indicted-book-cooking-scheme-article-1.1713723#ixzz2vqNjKHQR

============================================

ZEROHEDGE.COM---The Law Firm's Fraudulent Methods

RELATED CHARGES----MISLEADING BOND OFFERING--SEC filed a related civil lawsuit against Davis, DiCarmine, Sanders and two former Dewey finance officials, finance director Frank Canellas and former controller Thomas Mullikin. The SEC complaint accused the former executives of defrauding investors by misleading them about Dewey's finances in marketing materials for a $150 million bond offering in 2010.

By the end of 2008, the Schemers had created a document they called the “Master Plan” that described certain fraudulent accounting adjustments that the Schemers decided to pursue as part of the Scheme. From in or about the end of 2008 until the Firm’s bankruptcy in 2012, the Schemers input numerous of these and other fraudulent adjustments, and engaged in other fraudulent conduct, most of which made it appear that the Firm had either increased revenue, decreased expenses, or limited distributions to partners.

Some of these fraudulent adjustments and acts were:

a. Reversing disbursement write-offs – From 2008 through 2011, the Schemers improperly reversed millions of dollars of write-offs of client disbursements that the Firm had no intention or reasonable expectation of collecting.

b. Reclassifying disbursement payments – From 2008 through 2011, the Schemers improperly reclassified millions of dollars of payments that had been applied to client disbursements during the year and applied the payments instead to outstanding fee amounts.

c. Reclassifying Of Counsel payments – From 2008 through 2011, the Schemers reclassified millions of dollars of compensation to Of Counsel lawyers as equity partner compensation. Historically, Of Counsel compensation had been treated as an expense in the Firm’s financial statements.

d. Reversing credit card write-offs – In 2008 the Firm initially properly wrote off more than $2.4 million in charges from an American Express card associated with defendant SANDERS that had not previously been expensed and were not chargeable to clients. For year-end 2008, the Schemers fraudulently reversed this write-off and hid the amount in the Firm’s books as an unbilled client disbursement receivable. Each subsequent year, the Schemers initially wrote this amount off, but then reversed the write-off at year-end. The amount remained on the Firm’s books as an unbilled client disbursement receivable at the time of the bankruptcy.

e. Reclassifying salaried partner expenses – In 2008, the Schemers improperly reclassified as equity partner compensation millions of dollars in compensation paid to, and amortization of benefits related to, two salaried, non-equity partners. Similar amounts had previously been treated as expenses on the Firm’s financial statements, so the reclassification had the effect of reducing Firm expenses. This change in treatment was neither disclosed to the Firm’s auditors nor disclosed on the Firm’s audited financial statements. In later years, the compensation paid to these two salaried partners was classified as equity partner compensation.

f. Seeking backdated checks – During at least two year-ends from 2008 through 2011, the Schemers sought backdated checks from clients to post to the prior year. At the end of each of the Scheme years the Schemers engaged in efforts to hide the date on which checks were received by the Firm. These efforts minimized the risk that the Firm’s auditors would discover that December checks received in January, including backdated checks, were being posted to the prior year.

g. Applying partner capital as fee revenue – For year-end 2009, more than $1 million that had been contributed by a partner to satisfy his capital requirement was applied as a fee payment for the client of a different partner. This amount was backed out of fees and applied to the partner’s capital account during 2010, but for year-end 2010 it was again applied as a fee payment for the same client.

h. Applying loan repayments as revenue – In 2008, pursuant to defendant DAVIS’s authorization, the Firm took on $2.4 million in bank loans that benefitted defendants DICARMINE and SANDERS. In early 2012, defendants DICARMINE and SANDERS repaid the Firm the final $1.2 million owed under the loans but structured the transaction so the loan repayment would increase the Firm’s revenue for 2011.

Bottom line: on or about March 2012, the Scheme had collapsed in on itself. For years, the Schemers had been fraudulently claiming revenue that the Firm did not have and pushing expenses and financial obligations off into the future. The Firm could no longer pay partners enough to prevent their departure, and the Schemers could no longer fool the Firm’s lenders, investors, and others. The Firm declared bankruptcy; thousands lost their jobs; and the Firm’s creditors were left owed hundreds of millions of dollars.
