Something is really, really, really not right
The New York Times has a really bizarre story on the front page today. I will make some remarks about the story and then there is a link at the bottom for you to read the entire story. I dont want to run wild with crazy conspiracy stories but there are some really peculiar parts of this New York Time story that warrants further investigation.
First some bullet points:
* Juan Jose Rojas Cardona (Pepe and hereinafter I will refer to him as that) lives in Mexico and is part of the casino business (known as Mexicos casino czar) with a very shady background and record. He is linked to violence and corruption in Mexico. According to a State Department cable in 2009, he was suspected of orchestrating the assassination of a business rival and making illegal campaign donations to Mexican officials;
* Pepe is wanted in the USA for state charges in Iowa going back to the early 1990′s. After his Iowa conviction in the early 90′s, he was sentenced to 5 years but then he jumped bail on the Iowa conviction.
* THE STRANGEST THING HAPPENED IN 1998 4 years after his plea of guilty to Federal charges. I have never seen this happen before Federal Prosecutors, even though Pepe had jumped bail a second time (and thus avoiding prison) and was in Mexico beyond their reach, went to a Federal Judge and convinced the Judge to quash the indictment.

I commented on this thread earlier.
I wonder if the F&F money laundering is related?
And why ‘Boner’ has (apparently) told Issa to lay off Holder.
Of course, anyone who goes back and looks at his past is racist, conspiracy theorist, etc.
We've been had, America.
clinton, bush, obama/clinton.
Why are you surprised?
Greta doesn’t let go of a subject until she gets to the bottom. Hope she has some type of protection.
OK, I’m certain now. Greta has left the darkside, and seen the light! This article proves it. She is no longer the flaming liberal, screeching about B.J. Clinton’s innocence, and his lying to a judge not rising to the level of Impeachment. Welcome to the right side, Greta! ( I predict that she will impinge on the Ted Baxter Factor’s ratings and give him some much deserved competition.)
“Former deep undercover DEA agent Mike Levine, who has extensive experience working in Latin America, offers his take on ATFs Fast and Furious, a view that is grounded in first-hand knowledge of the drug war and its sordid history:”
“If I were a criminal profiler, it wouldn’t take much to identify a CIA pattern here [with Fast and Furious]: A wacko, barroom commando, illegal operation that makes no sense whatsoever, run outside the control of law enforcement.”
Interesting. Do you think this has ties to why the feds (this administration) won’t secure the border?
It is my firm belief that the US Government has been and will always continue to be involved in shenanigans. I don’t believe for a minute that the release of the CIA’s “The Family Jewels”
stopped all of that kind thing.
Take the photo of Papa Bush and Jeb taken in the White House during a private visit. Obama has excoriated George W.
Sure, Papa Bush was in town. So what. That doesn’t mean that a cozy photo should be taken during Republican primaries.
Bush is CIA through and through.
I imagine the Cabal has sanctioned this:
Hey, Obama you can have the next four years and then my boy Jeb is up to bat.
I have no doubt that Washington DC and our government has become part of a huge criminal cabal. I would be suprised if fast & furious was more than an attempt to squash the right to bear arms.
It was in fact very beneficial to the cartels. I doubt that is a coincidence.
That’s what I was thinking. Was also thinking better late than never.
No wonder they’re terrified of a Newt administration. He’s the ONLY one who’d shut this down, or even try.
Most of the money raised by the brothers came from themselves or other family members. They collected less than $100,000 from other people and those contributions also will be returned.
At the time of the donations, the brothers were not registered voters. Alberto Rojas Cardona, 42, registered in Illinois last month and Carlos Rojas Cardona, 50, does not appear to be registered, a Chicago Board of Elections spokesman said.
Alberto Rojas Cardona lives in a Gold Coast high-rise and Carlos in a luxury apartment building overlooking Grant Park. Alberto declined to speak with Tribune reporters. Messages left at Carlos’ home were not returned.
Manny Sanchez is a Chicago lawyer and Obama fund-raiser who helps raise money among Hispanics. He said he met Alberto and Carlos Cardona at an Obama National Finance Committee meeting in Washington last December. He was struck that he did not know the Chicagoans because it is rare for me not to know a Latino supporter.
According to records in the Illinois Secretary of State office, the brothers are Near North Side residents living close to the Obama campaign Prudential Building headquarters. According to Federal Election Commission and state records, they run Tango Latin Inc. and an affiliate, Tango Productions, marketing and promotion firms.
The New York Times also reported that 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.
Asked by the Sun-Times why the campaign vetters who focus on major donors, not the million or so small contributors did not pick up on the Cardona family, the senior official said, it was very difficult to track down full information on this one. Obviously the New York Times put investigative resources into doing so. We dont necessarily have, our vetters dont necessarily have, that same ability to pursue that in the case of our 1.3 million donors. As soon as the questions were raised, we refunded the contributions.
Two non-registered voters, who raised over 200K for Obama and the DNC and had an ex-chairman of the Iowa DNC request a pardon for their fugitive brother from the Iowa governor, were members of the National Finance Committee meeting last December in DC where Obama addressed the crowd ... AND NO ONE KNEW WHO THEY WERE?!

Obama on 2012: This Is Going to Be Tough
Admitting his re-election is not a slam-dunk, President Obama today asked supporters to stick with him in 2012 because this is going to be tough.
Its understandable if people arent feeling as chipper as they were back in 2008, given the state of the economy, the president said.
Theres going to be some skepticism. Theres going to be some pushback, Obama told members of his campaigns National Finance Committee.

The country still has a ways to go after facing a crossroads in 2008, President Barack Obama said Tuesday as he spoke to top donors for his reelection campaign.
Back in 2008 we used to talk about this being a historic moment for America, that we were at a crossroads in our history, he said at a midday event for members of the Obama campaigns National Finance Committee at a Washington hotel. We havent fully crossed the road, and in some ways 2012 is even more important than it was four years ago. The choices could not be starker.
All money raised goes to the Obama Victory Fund, a joint account shared by the campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
And the plot thickens.......
Can't wait to see what American In Tokyo comes up with overnight.
One of O friend was the link to the Hispanic community...think it may have been Rahm E
Am going to CHicago crime thread to find the actual post.
This has all the stink of the rezko affiliation which ALSO began with the clintons and ended up with obama.
I am thinking the clintons might now believe that obama has outlived his usefulness and is risking their exposure from the getgo in all of this. clinton put him in and clinton cn take him out.
I also find it very odd, even bizarre, that bush sr, clinton’s adopted daddy, shows up at the WH one day and obama snubs him the next.
Was there a warning? You just don’t mess with these people.
Add the small, but not insignificant, fact that Greta is/was a clinton friend.
There is more to this. Much more.
