Congressman's $200,000 loan (amnesty cheerleader) ^ | 10/29/08 | Robert Becker, Todd Lighty and Dan Mihalopoulos, w/

Posted on 03/22/2014 3:56:21 PM PDT by Liz

CIRCA 2008 Democrat Cong Luis Gutierrez personally lobbied then-Democrat Mayor Richard Daley to back a controversial multimillion-dollar development for a campaign contributor who had just lent the congressman $200,000 in a real estate deal. Now Gutierrez's unusual gesture of support is under federal scrutiny.Gutierrez's July 7, 2004, letter to Daley -- written on U.S. House stationery -- is part of a federal grand juryi nvestigation. Gutierrez said there is no connection between the loan and his support for the Galewood Yards project, which is not in his district.....he said his involvement was "extremely minimal" and "entirely appropriate."

Key events in the Galewood Yards project

2000: Galewood Yards property acquired

July: Calvin Boender acquires the Galewood property from CMC Heartland.

2001: Contributions from Boender and associates

April 27: $10,000 to the New 29th Ward Campaign Committee of Ald. Isaac Carothers

May 21: $200 to New 29th Ward Committee

July 2: $1,500 to I Like Ike Campaign

Sept. 25: $1,000 to Gutierrez for Congress

Oct. 18: $2,000 to New 29th Ward Committee

Nov. 20: $1,000 to Gutierrez for Congress

Nov. 27: $3,000 to Friends for Gutierrez

Dec. 12: $3,000 to Gutierrez for Congress

Dec. 26: $10,000 to Friends for Gutierrez

2004: A meeting with the mayor

April: U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) purchases a lot at 1007 W. Fulton St. from Boender for $300,000 and borrows $200,000 from Boender?s company. Gutierrez repays the loan at 7 percent by June, according to his office.

Summer: Mayor Richard Daley meets with city planners who opposed Boender's residential and commercial plans for Galewood Yards.

CIRCA 2014 USA Today recently reported that Gutierrez paid an Illinois lobbyist more than $500,000 tax dollars to work side-by-side with his congressional staff. The lobbyist, Doug Scofield (the co-author of Gutierrez's autobio), was the lawmaker's former chief of staff, then paid as a contractor to train staff, review and draft news releases and help publicize Gutierrez's activities, the newspaper said.

Time to mobilize the Bank Secrecy Act----to follow the paper trail of Gutierrez's govt disbursements, and determine how govt monies changed hands.

Taxpayers demand to know the scope and dimension of government insiders ability to collude in sub rosa deals and who might be personally profiting.

<><> L/E needs to examine multiple bank accounts.

<><> Joint bank accounts might be used to facilitate the transfer govt funds from one account to another, and/or woire-transferred offshore;

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

<><> Financial schemes scheme might be advanced by issuing phony statements of payments from financial sources that actually covered the transfer of govt funds for insiders' personal use and/or for redistribution schemes.


NOTE WELL 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 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 or other unlawful activities.

Shady banking transactions could be prosecuted under the (1) Bank Secrecy ACT, (2) RICO, and, (3) the Hobbs Act.


<><> L/E should get ahold of: (1) copies of DHS checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) correspondence including snail mail, e-mail, mobile devices, cell phones, (8) employment contracts, (9) loan agreements, (10) other account books or official public records.

L/E should also explore (a) DHS monies paid to brokers, sub-rokers, (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 activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) frequent requests for withdrawals.

<><> Bank records might also show diversions to secret LLC accounts, to money launder and to operate personal ventures---or to finance campaign activities (and/or other currently favored redistribution schemes).

Tax fraud may also be a factor; facilitated by withdrawals, gift cards purchases, credit card purchases and intra-bank transfers from DHS accounts into personal accounts, campaign accounts, or into redistribution schemes.

<><> A huge tipoff is whether bank withdrawals support and luxurious lifestyle including payments for real estate, investment and stock holdings, jewelry, luxury vehicles, resort travel....... and gifts from luxury outlets for wives and mistresses (and campaign activities, or other redistribution schemes).


Taxpayers demand the Bank Secrecy Act be used to prosecute govt fraud, pronto.

Taxpayers are urged to notify the FBI now.

SUBJECT: Collusion, conspiracy, and bribery
IN RE: financial irregularities
REFERENCE: govt fraud, falsified documents, wire transfers, accounting fraud, etc.

This guy is always first to plop down the Hispanic Race Card, but now maybe we’ll find this is a smokescreen for being a crook like the other race baiters.

Gutierrez is a leading proponent of open borders and amnesty. He's close-mouthed about his part in massive sub-prime mortgage fraud as a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.


The Congressional Hispanic Institute, Inc, is an entity organized by then-Cong Joe Baca (D-Cali) in his capacity as head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

Cong Baca created "HOGAR" (Spanish for home) in 2003 to work with the mortgage industry, F/M, lenders, banks and latino community groups to increase mortgage lending to what savvy observers consider to be unqualified Latinos.

"HOGAR" colluded w/ then-Cong Baca in what was to become a massive bilking of taxpayers.

Then-Cong Baca calculatedly hyped the fact that the national Latino homeownership rate was 47%, compared with 68% for the overall population.

HOGAR was coached to call the figure "alarming," and to say "a concerted effort was required to ensure that by the end of the decade Latinos will share equally in the American Dream of home ownership."

HOGAR and Cong Baca conned the public, failing to note that most of the "dreamers" were illegals, citizens of Third World countries who had violated US borders.

Predictably, HOGAR colluded w/ co-conspirators which included:

(a) shaky mortgage companies that ran into big trouble;

(b) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, both now under federal control after billions in taxpayer bailouts;

(c) Countrywide Financial Corp., sold to Bank of America Corp;

(d) Washington Mutual Inc., taken over by the US government and sold to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.; and,

(e) New Century Financial Corp. and Ameriquest Mortgage Corp, both now defunct, killed by defaulted subprime Latino mortgages.

HOGAR's ties to the subprime mortgage industry were substantial. Bribery and self-dealing were rampant:

<><> Companies that donated $150,000 to Cong Baca got the right to have their own research fellow who would conduct fraudulent studies, which were cunningly used by industry lobbyists to pump lending.

<><> Bribery and extortion in the form of $100,000 annual donations to Cong Baca, for which HOGAR provided phony news releases from Cong Baca's Hispanic Caucus promoting a lender's commercial products to the Latino market,

<><> The most shocking example of bribery well- substantitated by Hogar's literature..... HOGAR announced it worked with Freddie Mac on a self-serving two-year examination of Latino homeownership in 63 congressional districts.

The "study" found Hispanic ownership on the rise thanks to "new flexible mortgage loan products" that the industry was adopting at the urging of Cong Baca's collusive coterie.

<><> HOGAR conned lenders into even more lenient down-payment and underwriting standards.

<><> As the subprime debacle unfolded, HOGAR declined repeated requests for comment despite the economic havoc their activities precipitated.

The mortgage schemes demonstrated the criminal activities of border violators with multiple identities---perhaps violent, terrorist-connected foreigners---colluding and conspiring to defraud private companies and public entities. And mortgage racketeering enterprises which employed sub rosa finance and business practices to carry out deceptions and frauds.

The alleged ring of swindlers---a Congresman, individuals with multiple identities, banks, insurance companies, mortgage brokers--might be charged with cheating the US govt, taxpayers and bank share holders out of hundreds of millions of dollars via an elaborate web of mortgage and bank frauds.

The mortgage Dreamers used multiple phony identities, fraudulent Social Security numbers, purchased from identity forgers in order to obtain govt-subsidized benefits.

L/E will find that individuals with multiple identities obtained fraudulent mortgages then flipped the houses at ever-higher prices to family member who then absconded to foreign countries, sticking banks (and taxpayers) with hundreds of millions in fraudulent mortgages.

BACKGROUND A Wall Street Journal investigative report related that, according to the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council examination of the borrowing spree, uncovered financial schemes by low-income housing groups, Hispanic lawmakers, a congressional Hispanic housing initiative, mortgage lenders and brokers, all colluding in fraduent schemes to increase homeownership among Latinos with forged documents which enabled massive fraud.

This was not simply the mortgage market at work. It was fueled by avarice, greed, and Congressional enabling fraudulent practices. In 2005 alone, mortgages to Hispanics jumped by 29%; Latinos with multiple fraudulent identities in low-paying jobs obtained subprime mortgages for prime properties---soaring to 169%.

Falsifying Government Documents involves altering, changing, or modifying a document for the purpose of deception.......can also involve forgery and/or passing copies of false documents. Falsifying documents is usually done in connection with broader criminal aims, such as extortion, government fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, financing terrorism........

Types of documents commonly falsified may include:
◾Tax returns and income statements
◾Personal checks
◾Bank account records
◾Business record keeping books
◾Immigration documents (such as visas, passports, etc.)
◾Identification cards and birth certificates

Many different types of acts can be considered as falsifying a document, including:
◾Altering or misrepresenting factual information such as prices or monetary amounts
◾Stating false information when requested to provide truthful statements
◾Forging a signature
◾Using official letterheads without authorization
◾Concealing assets or property WRT obtaining federal/state grants))
◾Knowingly using or distributing a fake document

A person can only be held criminally liable if they are deliberately acting with the intention of deceiving or defrauding another party. /

Falsifying documents is a very serious offense and is generally classified as a felony. This means that a person charged with falsifying documents may be subject to the following legal penalties:
◾Having to pay a monetary fine
◾Incarceration in a prison facility

Depending on the gravity of the offense, as well as individual state laws, falsifying documents can result in a prison sentence of 5-10 years. Also, if government documents or authorities were involved, the legal penalties may be more severe. ..... legal penalties may increase with repeat offenses.

The penalty for falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.

US Cong Gutierrez (Dimwit tool of the Third World): "Once Congress approves an immigration increase, minorities should demand more, said Cong Gutierrez (Dim-Third World), a leading advocate of the Senate bill giveaway.

“The next day after we pass it, you know we’re not going to be satisfied, we’re going to come back,” he said. “We’re going to have a civil rights act, we’re going to have a voting rights act… Nobody is leaving this fight once we conclude this first chapter,” he said.

"Hopefully, in 30 years, [we] can bring immigrants… from all over the world,” Gutierrez said.


Obama's done everything he can to suckup to illegals except fellate a latino on the Capitol steps.

Obama's elevated latinos to the USSC, cabinet positions, admin jobs, absolved illegals of all culpability for falsifying official documents, welfare fraud, EITC fraud, murders, border violations, arms trafficking, drug trafficking. He stopped deportations, gave 'em jobs taken away from Americans, free healthcare, education, financed every other whim w/ tax dollars.

Obama is illegally giving out work permits, refusing to deport most captured illegals and he has illegitimately created a DREAM ACT by fiat. This is a man who has made absolutely clear that he has no intention of enforcing immigration law; so how do you make any kind of deal that relies on his implementing even tougher rules?


Meet the new Democrat voters.

Quoting Miguel Perez of Cal State-Northridge’s MEChA chapter: “The ultimate MECha ideology is the liberation of Aztlan (taking back the SW USA). Communism would be closest [to it]. Once Aztlan is established on US soil, ethnic cleansing (of Americans) would commence: Non-Chicanos (Americans) would have to be expelled — opposition groups (that's us) would be quashed because latinos have to keep power.”

Teapot Dome Scandal

No difference in the scandal and bribery. No matter how far they go to
cover up their crimes, no matter how much they threaten those involved,
their guilt can ever be hidden well enough.

Congress, like Hollywood, is nothing but a great big money laundering operation. I doubt there are ten honest congress people in Washington. Almost all of them are bought and paid for. And it’s been that way for years.

Back in the 80s “Hot Dog” Tommy Robinson got elected to congress from Arkansas. He hired Jerry Jones’ daughter at $80,000 a year. When asked what she did his reply was “I’m not sure. But I’m going to give her a $20,000 a year raise.”
