When Huff & Puff  (The Huffington Post)  liberal beacon to many, actually publishes evidence of liberal, some would say progressive, corruption you can be positive there is something rotten in the state where Pigford settlements have reared their tails, er tales.  A writer reporting serially has turned the pig manure upside down on some of the corruption involving the United States Department of Agriculture, fake Pigford claimants and at the risk of repeating myself, “slippery lawyers” mired in Pigford scat. Writer Lee Stranahan has written several articles, and it looks like he will write many more, on the crime and shame that in large part Pigford and its hanger-on groups of  the assorted scammers have managed to become … if they weren’t such to begin with.

Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government has both published on its own and republished other work involving the fraud of some Pigford settlements and the agencies and individuals involved.  Today they have published a condensed version of one of Mr.Stranahan’s pieces together with one of Mr. Stranahan’s videos. I am posting the video, along with a link to the condensed version on Big Government and a link to the full version appearing on “Huffington.”  First just below you’ll find the video of an attorney who does some admitting of his own … I think and you’ll see:

Now you’ll find the Breitbart partial and the Huffington complete article by Mr. Stranahan

Breitbart Partial

Huffinton Whole

As you plink around on Breitbart and Huffinton in pursuit of the Pigford mess (You owe it to yourself and Mr. Pocketbook to do do) please remember the Pigford settlements were supposed to be about justice to black farmers allegedly discriminated against and not about general reparations , which it seems in large degree, to have developed into.  In my opinion, you should be be outraged, as should every caring American, no matter the color or ethnicity of the citizen finding the depth of this deep pig trough.

A flap of the cap to Mr. Stranahan, The Huffington Post and the Breitbart Bunch.  Look for more relevant links below.

Pigford, Another Day — Another Dollar

The third day of exposure for the Pigford mess of a promised five to seven days.  How long will it actually last?  As long as there are crooked politicians, scam-artist citizens and we Americans who do not care that the crooks are laughing and thumbing their noses at us … without consequence.

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

Shylock ( see image on right) in Shakespeare’s,  The Merchant of Venice, said something on the subject of a debt owed him.  Here is the quote in the original English:

The pound of flesh which I demand of him Is deerely  bought, ’tis mine, and I will haue  it.

Giving us an expression that means a debt owed, which will be relentlessly and ruthlessly pursued.

What follows is a debt collected from the taxpayers of this nation which fits the definition.  And it fits the definition only because thousands of fraudulent claimants apparently ripped-off Uncle Sam.  I ran across more than a few articles today on the website, Big Government.  Each article deals with the so-called Pigford settlements.  For readers not acquainted with the Pigford issues, I can only say you need to delve into the settlements to see how your government, government employees, less than forthright politicians, and even some of your fellow citizens, will cave to corruption and deceit when it comes to money and votes.

To readers who have their minds made up about the propriety of the way the Pigford 1, and now the Pigford 2, settlement has or will be handled … or you just can’t bring yourself to read anything on Big Government, you are allowed to walk or run on out of the theater.  But if you do, you will be missing information every American citizen should have.  You may have opinions that differ from the articles or my own, but you surely cannot believe that what has been done is appropriate or intended by honest Americans.

Altogether there are 15 articles or commentaries loaded on Big Government today.  I hope readers will access and study articles for which they have time.  I read the 29 page PDF with a very long title.  My version of Adobe Reader allows me to post comments on the document, which I have done. Perhaps, they have little interest to others, but I posted my comments to help me remember the content.  I will post a link to my marked-up version.  If you decide to read it, you may have to download the latest version of Adobe Reader.  If you do read the mark-up, please remember the remarks are not edited.

I plan to read more of the 15 highlighted articles as I find time.  Here is the mark-up I mentioned above:

Pigford+Shakedown+PDF+01

You may download the latest version of Adobe Reader by going here, should you need it to read the comments.  You can right-click on the “cartoon clouds” which will open a drop-down menu which will allow you to make a choice about how you wish to read the comments.

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

Father Andrew, Andrew Breitbart that is, the father of Big Journalism, Big Government and another “Big” or two, isn’t giving up and he reports that no one has come forth to claim the $100,000 reward he has offered for proof the Tea Party folks yelled the “N” word at members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) on March 20th.  Reader’s will remember that the original allegation was made by members of the CBC, but never supported by evidence.  While one of my friends has asserted that it is no big deal that an accusation was made and not supported, I say that is possible in the eyes of many, but certainly an opportunity to collect $100 K  for a black college fund i$ a big deal.  We have previously written about these accusations in Finger Shakers and Muckrakers.

I’ll leave Mr. Breitbart’s story to Mr. Breitbart, but I do provide the link to his latest story and video for those that wish to read the article and see the video in tandem.The video is complementary to the article, but it is posted below if you wish only to see the video.  Although, I will say that you’ll be hard-pressed to fully understand the gist of the Breitbart article, if you access the video without reading the article.

The video appears here for those with scarce time and as said before, it also appears in Mr. Breitbart’s article.

Comment or not?

ADDENDUM:  I have been remiss in not identifying my friend, so here’s a point to his article and our “back and forth.”

An Attempt To Help The “Crash The Tea Party” Folks (NOT)

By Chuck Ring (GadaboutBlogalot ©2009 – 2010)

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

There are those who would delight in crashing the “Tea Party” and there are those who would delight in crashing the tea party crashers.  I am one or the other … see if you can tell which.

This quote comes from the Associated Press (AP) by way of  Breitbart’s Big Government:

Opponents of the fiscally conservative tea party movement say they plan to infiltrate and dismantle the political group by trying to make its members appear to be racist, homophobic and moronic.  Jason Levin, creator of  http://www.crashtheteaparty.org, said Monday the group has 65 leaders in major cities across the country who are trying to recruit members to infiltrate tea party events for April 15—tax filing day, when tea party groups across the country are planning to gather and protest high taxes.

In the same AP article, Tea Party supporters are reported as saying that the “crashers” can’t attack on the Tea Party message and they (“crashers”) have to resort to tactics reported in the article.  The article has more to say and can be accessed here.

Here is a quote from Mr. Jason Levin as reported by AP:

“Do I think every member of the tea party is a homophobe, racist or a moron? No, absolutely not,” Levin said. “Do I think most of them are homophobes, racists or morons? Absolutely.”

This information was further reported and discussed at the FreeRepublic site.  In particular, on a discussion thread which can be found here. In addition to discussion of the “crashers” methods and madness, there is plenty of possible identification of usual suspects and associates.  Photographs, Facebook, Twitter and other records which seem to solidly lay down the fellow at the helm of CrashTheTeaParty are to be found.

Do yourself and all Tea Party movements a favor and access all of the information which the above links point toward.  Read the comments, follow any additional links in the comments and for our sake take heed and learn from what you read. There will likely be a test on April 15, 2010.

Obama And Union Gifts That Keep On Giving

Quote Freely From The Article – Leave The Pseudonym Alone

A report from BigGovernment.com that our President has not shot down, picked and roasted the goose that laid the golden egg for his political career.  In this particular case, the magic worked by the President bodes well for his goose … the goose being big labor.  What Obama has shot down is a requirement that would cause big labor to disclose, en masse, the following as reported by BigGovernment.com in this article. You can read the complete article and its predecessor, but a short quote will also yield an understanding of what might have been:

Under current law and regulations valid until December 30th, union bosses were supposed to carefully document the billions of dollars they extract from workers as a condition of employment that they in turn pour into front groups and other “funds” each year.

Previously, Obama’s administration had allowed a scant 11 days for comment on any proposed change to the above requirement. As we see in the article, in the grand scheme of this administration, the effective date for disclosure was extended for another year. Further, the Obama bunch will attempt, during this year (2010) to do away with ANY reporting requirement whatsoever.

Truly,  gifts destined to keep on giving.
