Skip to comments.Is Democrat Leland Yee a Full-Blown Gun-Runner for Russians and Islamic Terrorists?
Posted on 03/28/2014 7:15:05 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
San Francisco Magazine has published highlights of the indictment against Democrat California Sen. Leland Yee. Yee is currently running for California secretary of state, a post from which it now appears that he intended to wage strategic guerrilla warfare until he went off the grid to fight for Islamic rebels himself.
Yee told an FBI agent to give him a shopping list of guns: Senator Yee asked [the agent] to provide an inventory list of desired weapons [...] [The agent] told Yee he would deliver $2,000,000 cash.
Yee could arrange from some serious firepower: [The agent] asked about shoulder fired automatic weapons. Senator Yee responded by saying the automatic weapons are the equivalent to the ‘M16′ Automatic Service Weapon [...] [The agent] asked about the availability of shoulder fire missiles or rockets. Senator Yee responded I told him about the rockets and things like that.
Yee took personal responsibility for delivering the weapons: Senator Yee said, Were interested in arranging the weapons deal’ [...] and said of the arms dealer, Hes going to rely on me, because ultimately its going to be me.’ [The agent] stated he would compensate Yee for brokering the relationship and arms deal.
Yee was in it for the cash: Senator Yee said, Do I think we can make some money? I think we can make some money. Do I think we can get the good? I think we can get the goods.
Yee masterminded a complex scheme to import illegal weapons: Keith Jackson [a political consultant who worked as Yee's fundraiser] told [an agent] that Senator Yee had a contact who deals in arms trafficking. This purported arms dealer was later identified. Jackson requested [a campaign donation] on behalf of Senator Yee, for Senator Yee to facilitate a meeting with arms dealer with the intent of [the agent] to purportedly purchase a large number of weapons to be imported through the Port of Newark, New Jersey. During a meeting [...] Senator Yee discussed certain details of the specific types of weapons [the agent] was interested in buying and importing.
Yee had connection with Filipino rebel groups: Keith Jackson advised that Senator Yee had an unidentified Filipino associate who was supplying heavy weapons to rebel groups in the Philippines.
Just ponder that one for a few seconds. Yee has tried to disarm Americans. Behind the scenes he claims that he is arming rebel groups in the Philippines. Which rebel groups? You’ll see on the next page.
These rebel groups:
Including Muslim terrorists: According to Senator Yee, Mindanao was largely population by Muslim rebel groups who were fighting the federal government. Yee continued by saying the Muslim rebels had no problem kidnapping individuals, killing individuals, and extorting them for ransom.’”
And yet he wanted to arm them, while disarming law-abiding Americans.
In specific the Moro Islamic Liberation Front: [The agent] asked about the major Muslim organizations in the Mindanao region of the Philippines. Senator Yee responded by saying M.I.L.F.
Yee apparently wasn’t making up his arms dealer. It’s a real person. A real Russian person.
And, Russian arms dealers: According to Senator Yee, the arms dealer source the weapons from Russia.
Well. Surely having an elected official working on illegal deals with Russian arms dealers to arm Islamic terrorists trying to overthrow a government allied to the United States at a time when Russia is causing global — sorry, regional — problems, isn’t a big problem…?
And neither is this?
Yee yearned for a different life: Senator Yee stated he was unhappy with his life and said, ‘There is a part of me that wants to be like you [...] Just be a free agent out there.’ Senator Yee told [the agent] that he wanted to hide out in the Philippines.
This is extraordinary.
It’s at this point in the story that the media will go out of their way not to ask any other Democrats what they knew about Yee and whether they have a culture of corruption.

Update: Yee has dropped out of the California secretary of state race.
Sure sounds like it and it also sounds like Dianne Feinstein needs to worry.
Judas effing Priest
Now this is a “Big F’n deal”.
Wonder who his Whitehouse contact is?
He must be he’s a democrat.
Lord of War
There ain't NO politics as corrupt as local politics. I did make that up but it seems appropriate.
Also ANY criticism of him from non-Chinese was AUTOMATICALLY "racist." Win-win for him...until CLANCY lowered the boom!
I would search for a Chinese minion lurking somewhere in the White House staff.
Maybe hairy reid-iculous will way in and “prove” that it’s all a set up by the evil un-American Koch brothers just to make demokkkrats look bad.
Good job on putting DEMOCRAT prominently in the title.
There is NO question about that.
The city was founded by poor Irish and Italian immigrants--who "let the Chinese count the money" as the saying goes. Thus, unions, all Democrats, WERE big stuff.
San Francisco, actually, was a Republican city for a long time. It was only after the perverts, Communists and hippies started to gain an edge in the ‘60s did it go to the dark side.
And they tell us the Mafia is dead.
Isn’t this resume enhancement for a Democrat?
Hang Him High!
And smelly too after they declared it an open city for the homeless.
hey fieldmarshal - change the crawl to DEMOCRAT (if you please)
DemocratIC performs a subtle erosion. Thanks.
This POS is a traitor, pure and simple.
Execute the son-of-a-bitch. Justice done!
Maybe all Democrat candidates for anything be required to take a course in, and pass and exam on moral turpitude.
You’re right. Unfortunately, I didn’t create the gif, and I’m not sure how to alter it.
Muslim rebels just signed a peace treaty with the Philipino government today or yesterday....
Sometimes they make it so difficult and other times they make it easy. That said, I see probation and community service in his future, if that.
Can’t help but wonder if he had his fingers in Bill Clinton’s Chinese buddies arming up the LA gangs with full auto weapons right before the 1996 elections.
>>San Francisco, actually, was a Republican city for a long time. It was only after the perverts, Communists and hippies started to gain an edge in the 60s did it go to the dark side.
“Bullitt” really shows how beautiful San Fransisco was.
I remember taking a trip there in the 90’s and seeing homeless people fighting right as I exited the BART station.
What do Diane & Nancy know about this, and when did they know it???
Time for the media to hunker down and black this out.
His talents are wasted on the State level, and I suspect the Feds are simply jealous. I see a bright future for him eventually in the upper circles of D.C. power.
If convicted, he’ll probably get a presidential pardon and then join the Fed team, but most likely he’ll strike a plea deal in the next few weeks and make it a smoother transition.
You will SEE that the city was overwhelmingly Democrat except in 1920 - 1928. That WAS the "makings" of the Great Depression...Al Capone and Prohibition, all that "good" T.V. stuff.
The chart only goes back to 1916. California didn't even get statehood until the September 9, 1950.
“Sure sounds like it and it also sounds like Dianne Feinstein needs to worry.”
As well the Tongs are going to all get a proctological exam from the FBI. I’ll bet “Shrimp Boy’s” buddies are really pissed off!
They're questioning a certain Mr. Ibling Doe but it's not yet conclusive.
As long as he gives back the money, everything should be good. Right, Harry Reid?
Just another greedy and corrupt politician, many of which lurk in the halls of Congress.
Maybe his loyalty is to the Chinese. Helping weaken US and fill his pockets as he goes.
Simple misunderstanding, easy to explain. Now go pay your Liberty Tax citizen.
All politicians are scoundrels until proven otherwise. Upon proof, they must make regular installments of proof or the will be re-labeled a scoundrel.
Maybe he can have a ship named after him like the Murtha.
“Forget about Treason. Hoist the Rainbow ensign!”
As in "John Doe." Wow, of all the made-up names I ever heard, that's a winner...or loser.
YOU MADE THAT UP!!
YES, typo, 1850. THANKS.
There will ALWAYS be a mafia. It's just a neat name that the Italians gave us.
Yakuza = Japanese mafia. STILL around.
Did you go to the website that gave you the San Francisco voting record (from 1916) that showed the city voted DEMOCRAT consistently and for eons?
Maybe I am misjudging him.
I'd expect this in Equatorial Guinea (or in Russia for that matter), but I have a naive disposition to think that we're not like that. That it is not a bigger story is testimony to how useless/biased/timid the legacy media is in this country. If only a young female intern were involved.
In a larger sense, the war on guns might just be a diversionary tactic to allow the anti-gun pols to make millions running guns on the sly. Wonder what the war on drugs would be shown to conceal?
Well, it was already in decline by then (the hippie infestation was in full tilt by 1968). I think “Vertigo” is a better example in 1958. I was last there in the early ‘90s where my leftist half-sister gave me instructions in protocol for dealing with the deranged homeless people. When the Mayor, Frank Jordan (1992-96) tried to clean it up, they sacked him for being a “meanie.”
That chart (nevermind the backwards colors) doesn’t tell you anything but the Presidential voting breakdown (if you’ll note, it tended to vote as the nation did until 1960 when it went hard-left and out of the mainstream).
San Francisco was a Republican city for a long time, there were NO Democrats elected Mayor from 1908 until 1964. The same went for the legislature. Casper Weinberger represented an urban SF district in the Assembly. Republicans were either competitive with or held one or both U.S. House seats up until the early 1970s. Again, it was only in the post-1960/64 era when the city moved out of the mainstream (more to the point, families with traditional values moved out or were displaced by singles with radical leftist politics).
Naw, they're just trying to give the American voters what they want....recognizing the majority of American voters are female.
