"I agree with State Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg that Leland Yee should immediately step down."

Ahhhh, shouldn't we know those charges are true first Ms. Boxer?

"If these allegations are true, they are beyond outrageous."

Barbara, would you mind telling me the word for beyond outrageous. I thought that when things were outrageous, they just remained outrageous. I didn't realize you could trump outrageous.

Wondering if Babs has issued “Commendations” to Yee’s jailed buddy “Shrimp Boy” Chow (the criminal Tong leader) like Fineswine, and Tom (Fagboy) Ammiano, the other State Senator from the SF area did?

TAKE YOUR SEATS, STUDENTS---TIME FOR YOUR LESSON IN DEMOCRAT POLITICS 101.

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

HOW DEMOCRATS GET AND KEEP PUBLIC OFFICE--101: California Democrat, State Sen Leland Yee, discussed w/ an undercover FBI agent about supplying terroristic- style weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired automatic weapons and missiles....in exchange for campaign contributions.

Sen Lee showed the FBI agent the entire process of how to get those weapons from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines into the United States (according to the FBI affidavit).

Democrat Yee's alleged crimes also include:

<><> wire fraud,

<><> money laundering,

<><> corruption in office,

<><> bribery,

<><> alleged murder-for-hire plots targeting a political consultant who apparently crossed Yee,

<><>international weapons trafficking conspiracy in exchange for campaign contributions to Yee.

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

LESSON REFERENCE: Sen Yee's Democratic Playbook---plotting w/ terrorists to advance his political ambitions---- is widely used in Democrat circles.

Former Pres bill Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative Foundation" few months back.. Notwithstanding the bombshell news that (1) the Clintons had employed a Muslim Brotherhood activist....and, (2) the Clinton Foundations were outed by the NY Times for their shady dealings and runaway spending.

Gehad al Haddad (above), Muslim Brotherhood activist AND former Clinton employee.....is ready to carry out presidential orders. Gehad is currently sitting in a nice comfy Egyptian jail as we type. Gehad al Haddad was a Muslim Brotherhood spox--while simultaneously working at Hillary and Bill's tax-exempt foundation.

Gehad was arrested by the Egyptian military for inciting violence AT THE SAME TIME he was a Clinton employee. Gehad knows plenty about the way the M/B uses tax-exempts for money-laundering (to finance terror activities against America).

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

THE CLINTON-MUSLIM TERRORISM CONNECTION --- The Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting terrorist activities at the same time. Gehad al Haddad's intimacy w/ the Clintons explains why they remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."

The Clintons doing their "Holy Family" act.

NOTE The Clintons' shady foundation financing is unveiled in a recent NYT expose of Clinton corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. Actions Billy took as president now serve to fuel hefty contributions to the foundation.

The Clintons' shady tax-exempt modalities are unveiled in the recent NYT investigative story. Corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. The Clintons didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---never even had a home to call their own. Now they're multi-millionaires.......with hundreds of millions in donations from dubious sources financing Hillary's ambitions and Bill's ego-driven obsession for being in the limelight.

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

There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three tax-exempt Clinton Foundations and their assorted money-grabbing derivations.

We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton's lifestyle/political ambitions---- especially b/c Hillary is running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton's are truly indebted.

NY POST EXCERPT ----The Bill Clinton Foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses — Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofit’s tax forms reveal.....includes $4.2 million in 2011 for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are attached); $730,000 for the Clinton Global Health Initiative; and $7.2 million for the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).

Just before the Yee scandal broke, Sen Di/Fi---Senate Intel Committee head---whined about the CIA looking through her computers and taking documents. In light of the Yee scandal, this has more resonance now than when she began her whining. Seems Di knows how to get ahead of a scandal.

Just wondering. Did Di use her access to valuable US security data improperly? Is hubby cutting new deals w/ the Chi/Coms? Hubby made millions in China deals in past years. How'd he do that?

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

Di has a habit of mouthing off and helping criminals......before she was a US Senator, she was Mayor when the Zodiak killer was rampaging the area.

Mayor Di actually went on TV and showed viewers the shoes the cops told her the killer was wearing. Naturally, the Z/K got rid of the shoes......and more people got killed thanks to Di's utter stupidity.

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

NOTE: Bill Clinton was just traveling in China...panhandling for donations to his tax-exempt "foundations" (which finance Hillary's ambitions). Nice to know who the Clintons are beholden to....as Hillary eyes 2016.

How was Clinton able to penetrate the Great Wall of China---did Di/Fi give him any assistance?

US Sen Dianne Feinstein (Dimwit-Calif) released the following statement WRT Democrat State Senator Leland Yee's arrest for terrorist gun trafficking: “The allegations against Senator Yee are shocking. It has become clear he has lost the confidence of his colleagues and for the good of his constituents should step down.”

Huh? She's shocked? More like sap-happy Di/Fi's doing a quick CYA before all the dirt comes out.

INCONVENIENT FACTOID: Di's hubby made millions doing deals in China. Did M/M Di/Fi get any help from Yee? From Shrimp Boy Chow? Campaign donations, maybe?

This is Shrimp Boy Chow who was arrested in connection w/ Yee's terrorist arms trafficing plot.

THE DI SUCKUP Di/Fi honored Chow as a "community role model" at the same time Chow was running a criminal enterprise.

What will Holder do?

He’ll let them get away with it.
He was never held responsible for Fast and Furious.

They’re trotting all this out now so the voters forget all about it when something like Russia invading Ukraine within the next couple weeks knocks it off everyone’s radar, and it will be “old news” come the fall when they trot out charges against Republicans so it will be fresh come the November elections.

I think if this story gets the proper attention, and not treated as some anomaly, we will find deep roots that go to members of the U.S. Congress and beyond.

But it will not go much further, for even conservatives treat this as some kind of joke, if you’ve seen other threads on this.

Agree. I opened the thread to see how Babs would twist the facts to conclude that Yee is Mother Theresa reincarnated.

Corruption? He was running guns. Unlike Eric Holder, he was running them into the US from outside. Thanks mdittmar.

He should have known to funnel the graft through a family member like her husband. Amazing how she is nearly worth a half billion since she became senator. A true rags to riches story thanks to no bid contracts for her husband.

Pray America wakes up
