  • Is Jamie Gorelick in on IRS scandal, too?

    WND ^ | 02/13/2014 | Jack Cashill
    Just when I think I am beyond the reach of shock, I come across some new revelation that makes my head rotate. Disturbing enough was WND’s breakthrough discovery that the liberal, Soros-funded Urban Institute has an officially sanctioned role in the vetting of nonprofits that seek tax-exempt status through the IRS. Almost equally disturbing is the revelation that the vice chairwoman of the Urban Institute Board of Trustees is none other than Jamie Gorelick. How does this lady manage it? In her most recent public outing, Gorelick represented BP in the Gulf oil mess – not the first disaster with...

    A new film claims the official government report on the crash of TWA Flight 800 in 1996 is an elaborate fabrication, but the most shocking part of the story is that charges are being leveled by some of the very investigators who put the report together. Six experts who appear in the film were members of the National Transportation Safety Board investigation team that concluded the crash was an accident, but they now claim they were silenced by their superiors. The movies, "TWA Flight 800" will debut on EPIX TV next month, on the 17-year anniversary of the crash.

    FBI agents aren’t allowed to treat individuals associated with terrorist groups as potential threats to the nation, according to a startling, newly discovered FBI directive. The fact that a terrorism suspect is associated with a terrorist group means nothing, according to the FBI document, “Guiding Principles: Touchstone Document on Training.” The “touchstone” document, dated March of this year, is available online but hasn’t been reported on by major media outlets. Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are to be instructed that “mere association with organizations that demonstrate both legitimate (advocacy) and illicit (violent extremism) objectives should not automatically result in a...

    When people think of 9/11, the first names that should cross their minds is Jamie Gorelick and Bill and Hillary Clinton. "Gorelick's Wall" was created to block, slow and mislead investigations into the plethora of Clinton scandals and leads by literally destroying the ability of the country's investigative agencies to speak to each other. For those of you who missed this, in typical Clinton style it was that blunt - Gorelick wrote a memo that decreed that the various agencies could not talk to each other about their investigations, if they thought their leads, evidence or other information might be...

    http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2008/09/jamie-gorelick-mistress-of-disaster.html It's not often that one person plays key roles in two -- count 'em, two -- trillion-dollar disasters. Welcome, my friends, to the world of well-connected Democrat Jamie Gorelick. In 2004, observers were "astonished" to discover that a key member of the 9/11 Commission had a fatal conflict-of-interest. Jamie Gorelick had served as a Deputy Attorney General under Bill Clinton from 1994 to 1997. It was later revealed that Gorelick had established a pre-Patriot Act "wall" that prevented the foreign intelligence and criminal investigative communities from collaborating. Her 1995 memo, entitled "Instructions on Separation of Certain Foreign Counterintelligence and...

    CHICAGO — BP wants to stop paying most people affected by the massive 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill for potential future damages because the region has recovered, a document released Friday said. The tourism industry is booming, all federal fishing grounds have reopened, and the shrimp catch has been plentiful, BP said. "The current economic data do not suggest that individual and business claimants face a material risk of future loss caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill," BP said in a 29-page document filed with the Gulf Coast Claim Facility, which is handling compensation claims. ...

    National Security: Come September, FBI director Robert Mueller will step down after a decade's salutary service. Washington, predictably, is abuzz with names of potential successors, one of them outrageous. President Obama should go for continuity. Mueller was sworn in as President George W. Bush's choice just a week before the 9/11 terrorist attacks. That the nation has not been stricken by any attacks so massive is testament to the outgoing director's remarkable counterterrorist achievements. The record is not entirely unblemished. But Mueller and his counterterrorism team have stopped thousands of jihadist plots, an astonishing string of victories. And he has...

    The Politics of Picking an FBI DirectorBy Evan Perez March 16, 2011, 12:11 PM ET. For a job designed to be apolitical, there’s plenty of politics to consider as the Obama administration picks the next director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Mark Filip, deputy attorney general during the Bush administration, said one reason FBI Director Robert Mueller has many admirers in both political parties is that he’s viewed as honest and non-political in handling sensitive national security and criminal investigations. Mr. Mueller’s 10-year term ends in early September. Among the candidates being discussed, according to U.S. officials, are James...

    President Obama is angry over recent public disclosures of classified information in Washington, and the intelligence community is re-evaluating the post-Sept. 11 push for greater intelligence-sharing, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Wednesday. *** Sen. Christopher S. Bond, Missouri Republican and vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said in an interview that the president's outrage is misplaced. "I think it's ironic that the president is so concerned about leaks when he sanctioned what seems to be a mass secret spilling by his top aids for the [Bob] Woodward book," Mr. Bond said.

At least five witnesses questioned by the Defense Department's Inspector General told Fox News that their statements were distorted by investigators in the final IG's report -- or it left out key information, backing up assertions that lead hijacker Mohammed Atta was identified a year before 9/11.

The 9/11 terrorists were aided and protected by corrupt elements within this country. 2. It is far more likely, than commonly thought, that Sadaam Hussein had an active role in the 9/11 attack. I would like find a web page which already assembles those facts in a concise, and readable format. I would like to find a book which does the same. A movie should be...

    Bloggers have taken to calling Jamie Gorelick “The Mistress of Disaster” and with good reason. As Deputy Attorney General under President Clinton, she penned the infamous “wall” memo that prevented intelligence agencies from sharing information in the run-up to September 11. After leaving the Justice Department, she headed over to Fannie Mae, where as vice-chair she helped wreck the American economy. From Fannie Mae, Gorelick careened back to the less than useless 9-11 Commission, whose mission she did her best to subvert. Few bloggers, however, have asked why Fannie Mae handed a middling bureaucrat with no financial or housing experience...

    It seems making big bucks at the expense of failing lenders was perfectly OK for FOB (friends of Barry) but it is not OK for current bankers to make anything over $500,000. Obama insists limits to bankers should be $500,000.KGorelick earned an estimated $26,000,000 serving as vice chair of Fannie Mae from 1998 to 2003The Clinton administration's White House Budget Director Franklin Raines ran Fannie and collected $50,000,000. Jamie Gorelick — Clinton Justice Department official — worked for Fannie and took home $26,000,000. Big Democrat Jim Johnson, recently on Obama's VP search committee, has hauled in millions from his Fannie...

    Three times during his tenure as Deputy Attorney General, Eric Holder was made fully aware that intelligence sharing with the Criminal Division was not taking place. As the officer in charge of day-to-day operations at the Department of Justice, his lack of due diligence ensured that the 'Wall' between the intelligence and criminal divisions of the FBI that Jamie Gorelick had built would remain in place for the foreseeable future. The 'Wall' stood as the Clinton administration and intelligence community saw the rising threat of al Qaeda, Ramzi Yousef was prosecuted for making the bomb used in the 1993 attack...

    Your inaccurate swipe at my record ("President Gulliver's Lawyer," Review & Outlook, Jan. 10) demands a response. First, the March 1995 memo I wrote about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act did not set policy for the Justice Department. It resolved a particular problem in the WorId Trade Center bombing case, which was that the U.S. Attorney wanted to use a FISA warrant to tap individuals who had already been the subject of criminal wiretaps -- something that had never been done before and which the Justice Department's Office of Intelligence Policy feared the FISA court would not permit. I was...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Four men who led mortgage finance giants Fannie Mae and (FNM.P) Freddie Mac (FRE.P) were called before a U.S. House of Representatives panel on Tuesday and chided for making irresponsible loans that fueled a housing crisis and helped push the economy into recession. "The CEOs of Fannie and Freddie made reckless bets that led to the downfall of their companies. Their actions could cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars," House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Henry Waxman said. The committee reviewed over 400,000 documents, many that passed through the hands of Daniel Mudd, the...

    On the eve of a Republican National Convention invoking 9/11 symbols, sound bytes and imagery, half (49.3%) of New York City residents and 41% of New York citizens overall say that some of our leaders "knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act," according to the poll conducted by Zogby International. The poll of New York residents was conducted from Tuesday August 24 through Thursday August 26, 2004. Overall results have a margin of sampling error of +/-3.5.

(a) On November 12, 2008, Fannie Mae (formally, the Federal National Mortgage Association) received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") that we had failed to satisfy one of the NYSE's standards for continued listing of our common stock. Specifically, the NYSE advised us that we were "below criteria" for the Exchange's price criteria for common stock because the average closing price of our common stock during the 30...

    This week in its series, “The New Team,” The New York Times profiles Jamie Gorelick, (pronounced Guh-REH-lick), very possibly America’s next attorney general. In the way of “baggage,” reporter Eric Lichtblau cites her past employment as vice chairwoman at Fannie Mae and her role in creating the famed intelligence “wall” while deputy attorney general under Clinton. Lichtblau may not be aware, however, of her most significant contribution to American security, or lack of the same, the one that put her in position to earn what the Times reports as “$25.6 million in salary and other compensation from 1998 to 2003”...

    President-elect Barack Obama will be taking office in January, and his transition team will have plenty to deal with. Jamie S. Gorelick, a partner at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP and former deputy U.S. attorney general, said at the The Deal's M&A Outlook 2009 conference on Tuesday that the president-elect will take a centrist stance on policy targeted to restart the economy. His centrist stance can be seen in his unnatural calmness during crises of his campaigning as well as in his resistance to partisan and personal attacks on the campaign trail, Gorelick said. She added that she...

    People manage to survive in Washington, DC while adding nothing to the commonweal, and sometimes doing substantial damage. They have the dirt on their rivals, they know who’s butt to kiss or they just have a canny instinct that enables them to artfully duck at the right moment. I’m not sure which describes Jamie Gorelick, but like Arnold Schwarzenegger at the end of a Terminator Movie, it seems you can predict that she’ll be back. This time, perhaps, as President Barack Obama’s new Attorney General. In revolutionary France, Minister Talleyrand had a similar career to Jamie Gorelick. He worked for...

    Transition: Jamie Gorelick may be back, this time as attorney general. It was her "wall of separation" that that left us blind pre-9/11. And let's not forget her admirable service at Fannie Mae.Not many people can claim to have been at the center of arguably the greatest financial disaster and greatest national security disaster in American history. But Gorelick, said to be on the short list for attorney general by the New York Times, can. Surely that qualifies her for further government service. Gorelick earned an estimated $26 million serving as vice chair of Fannie Mae from 1998 to 2003....

    Someone please tell me that my eyes are decieving me! Jaime Gorelick? For A.G.? Just when I thought that the pestialential swamp that is Washington D.C. could not get any murkier, this comes out. This woman, arguably, is at least partially responsible for 9/11, as well as being intimately involved in the pardon of all sorts shady, or downright criminal, Clinton era miscreants, including our all time favorite Marc Rich who, once safely out from under the thumb of the IRS, went on to bigger and better things like the UNs' oil for food program. And then, a nice cushy,...

    The New York Times’ Eric Lichtblau takes a look at a potential Attorney General nominee in the nascent Barack Obama administration — and it’s a familiar face. Jamie S. Gorelick may be on Obama’s short list for AG, but she has been a familiar face during the Bush administration, too. Gorelick served under Janet Reno during the Clinton administration and played a critical role in blinding counterterrorism efforts prior to 9/11: --snip-- Gorelick would bring corporate experience to an Obama administration — in the same way Rahm Emanuel did. Gorelick was vice chairman at Fannie Mae in the years when...
