Brennan: “unknowable” if we could have gotten the intel other ways.
For a senator who has defended every single violation of the Constitution by the government, in recent memory, these tweets were stunning.
I almost fell out my chair when Senator Feinstein, stated in a 60 Minutes
interview earlier this year that the Second Amendment needed to be protected. Yet, this is the same Feinstein who famously stated on 60 Minutes
in 1995, “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them . . . Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ’em all in, I would have done it, This is the same Feinstein who defended unwarranted NSA spying
on every American just as long as they did not spy on her. Wait a minute, this is the same Dianne Feinstein that tried to ban free speech
on the Internet by independent journalists. I am confused, will the real Dianne Feinstein please stand up?
As we approach the clown and puppet show of 2016 (i.e. the general election), the powers that be are seeking to promote two candidates that they can dress up and parade in front of the American public in order to give the public the illusion that they have a real choice. On the Republican side we have Bush and Rubio. On the Democratic side, there is the presumptive candidate, Hillary Clinton. With Clinton’s past catching up to her, the Democrats need another “champion of liberty” waiting in the wings and increasingly, that person appears to be Senator Dianne Feinstein. Is Feinstein a legitimate candidate, or is she an insurance policy for Clinton should the tide of opposition continue to grow? Time will tell. Meanwhile, let’s put this newest “champion of the people” under the microscope.
CBRE, FDIC and Blatant Conflicts of Interest
In 2009, Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation which directed $25 billion in “taxpayer money to a government agency that had just awarded her husband’s real estate firm a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry standards. Without being a member of the Senate Banking Committee, Feinstein curiously stepped outside of her bounds and offered to help the FDIC obtain money in its efforts to meet the increasing demand of compensation related to the ever-increasing level of home foreclosures. Feinstein’s offer was delivered only a few days before the agency determined that CB Richard Ellis Group (CBRE) , the commercial real estate firm that Feinstein’s husband Richard Blum leads as the undisputed board chairman, had just won the competitive bidding contest for a highly coveted federal contract to sell foreclosed properties that the FDIC would have inherited from a growing list of failed banks.
Feinstein and her husband denied any link between the legislation and the contract signed on November 13, 2009. Incredulously, the couple had the audacity to claim that they didn’t even know about CBRE’s business relationship with FDIC until after it was awarded, despite the fact the Blum was the Board Chairman.
The Washington Times notes that only a few days after consummating the contract with the FDIC, “CBRE raised $207 million through a stock offering that sold for $3.77 a share. Mr. Blum’s investment partnerships bought 10.6 million shares at the market price of $3.77. The stock offering was announced a couple of days before the signing of the FDIC contract.” This is called insider trading and Diane Feinstein and her husband, Richard Blum, are guilty of the offense. Martha Stewart’s jaw must have hit the floor because, amazingly, nobody went to jail. Could some liberal democrat please explain to America how Feinstein’s crimes are not as egregious as what Nixon did in the Watergate scandal?
The Perini and URS Scandals
Feinstein was a member of the Military Construction Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Subcommittee (MILCON) from 2001 to 2005. During her tenure, Feinstein voted for appropriations worth billions of dollars to her husband’s firms URS Corp. and Perini Corp.
Both Perini’s and URS’ majority shareholder is Richard Blum. It is estimated that Perini now holds at least $2.5 billion worth of contracts tied to the imperialist expansion of the United States military’s policy of endless war. Blum’s largest Department of Defense contracts are “indefinite delivery-indefinite quantity” or “bundled” contracts. Incredibly, you and I are on the hook for guaranteeing profit margins for the company. In May 2006, Perini held a series of bundled contracts awarded by the Army Corps of Engineers for work in the Middle East worth $1.73 billion. Perini has also been awarded an open-ended contract by the Air Force for military construction and environment quality control at closed military bases.
Feinstein’s personal wealth accumulation since becoming a senator has grown to nearly $200 million. Feinstein has never held a job outside of public service. I am having trouble understanding how a public servant accumulate a fortune of this magnitude.
There is so much more to the criminality of Senator Feinstein and her husband, that I would encourage readers to do more research in order to discover how rampant the criminality in Washington DC has actually become. Unfortunately, Feinstein’s betrayal of her oath of office does not end with her personal greed and subsequent abuse of power. It can be accurately stated that Feinstein is a traitor to the Republic.
Feinstein the 21st Century Benedict Arnold
Even the extreme left wing liberal newscaster, Rachel Maddow, has taken Feinstein to task over her alleged priorities and abuse of office.
The Ultimate Betrayal of the American People
Feinstein’s previous legislation includes a ban on semi-automatic handguns and shotguns in addition to rifles. The legislation also would have required mandatory registration of previously purchased guns. In other words, it is illegally retroactive and violates ex post facto prohibitions contained in the Constitution.
If Feinstein’s draconian bill is passed, the ATF would be in charge of enforcement which should be a huge concern to gun owners. This would be the same ATF that got caught illegally shipping guns into Mexico in order to undermine the Second Amendment. This policy, known as Fast and Furious,has led to the death of tens of thousands of Mexicans, 300 Americans and 3 Border Patrol Agents includingBrian Terry, who’s family is suing the Obama Administration for perpetrating this illegal activity. Talk about the fox watching the hen house.
Rebuffed in her private desire to become California’s next governor, Feinstein, instead, has instead focused on a new form of criminality emanating out of her senatorial position. Namely, Feinstein supports the incremental and eventual evisceration of the Second Amendment.
Here is a verbatim summary of Feinstein’s 2013 proposed bill, taken from her senatorial website, which will, if passed, it would have incrementally move towards destroying the Second Amendment. Fortunately, this bill did not pass. Not to be deterred, Feinstein subsequently introduced another draconian gun confiscation bill in June of 2014.
The website at The Common Sense Show is filled with articles which cites historical precedents with regard to what transpires when governments initiate gun bans. In short, the result is genocide, not my words, this is historical precedent. Yet, CBS News, 60 Minutes and the rest of the corporate controlled media would have you forget all of Feinstein’s previous transgressions. Her new image is being remade right in front of our eyes. We are supposed to magically forget that Feinstein is one of the biggest abusers of the Constitution, while at the same time, she and her husband have robbed the American taxpayers blind.
Even though Hillary is tainted by her past (e.g. Whitewater, Vince Foster, Benghazi), the following will be the excuse on why Hillary Clinton will drop out of the 2016 Presidential race.
Meet your new Democratic hero, the defender of the U.S. Constitution, Democratic Presidential candidate, Dianne Feinstein.
Object appear closer than they really are. This is a legitimate campaign button waiting in the wings.
The trial balloon has been floated, will Feinstein sail to the nomination?
The more things change, the more they stay the same. This is the ugly face of tyranny.
