Feds have more than 1,900 investigations open into alleged stimulus wrongdoing
Washington Guardian ^ | October 15, 2012 | John Solomon

Posted on 10/15/2012 9:00:29 AM PDT by yoe

The government’s chief spending watchdogs have already secured nearly 600 convictions and judgments against people and companies accused of misusing stimulus funds and have a whopping 1,900 investigations currently open into possible wrongdoing, officials say.

The wave of scrutiny more than three years after the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was passed by Congress early in the Obama administration means the question of how money was managed early in the program is certain to extend well into the next year as many of the current investigations come to conclusion.

Well, I’m just randomly throwing some darts here, but it seems to me, then, that there about 1900 cases of where Obama’s money wasn’t spent on the grift, kickbacks and straw payments he thought it was gonna be....these bastards stuck it in their own pockets and he din’t get no votes or nuttin’ out of it.

Should Romney win, he should appoint hundreds of prosecutors to go after the grifters enriched by being on BO’s “Friends List”.

It doesn't have to take years of investigations----this is easily disposed of w/ stim crooks nabbed easy as 1-2-3:

REFERENCE Under the Bank Secrecy Act passed by Congress, banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering, govt fraud and other financial crimes. “The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the tax-paying public from harm by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, govt fraud, tax evasion and other unlawful activities,” explained the special agent in charge for Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigations.

We need to know the number and location of secret LLC bank accounts the stim crooks opened. How many wire transfers were facilitated? How much was secreted offshore?

THE PAPER TRAIL IS HUGE L/E should subpoena bank records of all stim recepients----demand to see copies of (1) checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) bank account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence (e-mail, cell records), copies of employment contracts, salary agreements, records of payouts, and, (8) all other financial books/records.

L/E need should subpoena records WRT monies stim recepients paid to (a) brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.

L/E needs to scrutinize stim recepients' bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) request for withdrawals.

HAPPILY EVER AFTER L/E can then sue banks of stim recepients if found to be covering up govt fraud.

Missing in Action: Stimulus Sheriff Joe Biden by Michelle Malkin

Remember when President Obama bragged about Joe Biden’s fiscal discipline cred in 2009? “To you, he’s Mr. Vice President, but around the White House, we call him the Sheriff,” Obama warned government employees. “Because if you’re misusing taxpayer money, you’ll have to answer to him.”

Fast-forward to 2012. Call in the search teams. Since being appointed the nation’s stimulus spending cop, Sheriff Joe has taken a permanent donut break. He’s AWOL on oversight. In fact, he’s been bubble-wrapped, boxed and kept completely out of sight. The garrulous gaffe machine hasn’t sat down for a national media interview in five months.

The Democrats’ trillion-dollar “American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,” however, keeps piling up waste, failure, fraud and debt. Who benefited most? Big government cronies.

REFERENCE---HOW POLS WORK GOVT FRAUD Then-Gov-Jon Corzine was running for reelection in NJ---when Obama sent him $17.8 billion stimulus.

The stim billions mysteriously disappeared once it landed in Wall Street Corzine's hands.

Obama and Biden campaigned relentlessly for Corzine---even w/ massive Democrat voter registrations and Corzine massively outspending his opponent----Corzio still lost handily. And Biden (in charge of the stim) made dam sure there's several billion dollars secreted offshore-- for Obama's reelection.

Corzine and his top associates at MF Global committed massive fraud on investors and has still to be indicted.


HOW OBAMA REDISTRIBUTED THE WEALTH There's the billion dollar stim fraud of the "minority" farmers getting paid without having to prove they even raised a radish---another Obamanation.

Offshore Fraudster had links to offshore fund run by VP Biden's relatives
Reuters on Yahoo | 2/23/09 | BY Ajay Kamalakaran

(Reuters) – A fund of offshore hedge funds run by two members of VP Joe Biden's family was marketed exclusively by offshore firms controlled by Texas financier Allen Stanford, charged by regulators with an $8 billion fraud, the Wall Street Journal said.

The Bidens $50 million fund was jointly branded between the Bidens' Paradigm Global Advisors LLC and the offshore Stanford Financial Group entity headquartered in Antigua, and was known as the Paradigm Stanford Capital Management Core Alternative Fund, the paper said. Stanford-related offshore companies marketed the Biden fund to investors and also invested about $2.7 million of their own money in the fund, the paper said, citing a lawyer for Paradigm.

Paradigm Global Advisors is owned through a holding company by the vice president Biden's son, Hunter, and Joe Biden's brother, James, according to the WSJ. Paradigm's attorney, Marc LoPresti, who represents Hunter Biden and James Biden, as well as Paradigm, told the paper he did not know which Stanford entity invested the roughly $2.7 million.

NOTE A lawyer for Hunter Biden and James Biden told reporters the Bidens NEVER met or communicated with Stanford. (/snicker)

Stanford is in jail for 110 years---but the Bidens got off scot-free.
