Criminals in the Ruling Class

‘WE CHEATED’ — At UNC, whistle-blowers expose a sickening athletic scam

Deans, coaches and professors at certain sham academic departments of the university were complicit in placing basketball and football players with underdeveloped learning skills in classes that didn’t exist and never actually met. The only requirements were that the students write final papers consisting of a few sentences — a task too difficult for some, who could only read and write at a second grade level. Still, they all received As or Bs.

The biggest arrests this week were all Democrat lawmakers.

California State Senator Yeland Lee, praised for his efforts to make government more transparent and authored gun control legislation was arrested Wednesday, accused of conspiracy to deal firearms and wire fraud.  The Charges Show Leland Yee, Shrimp Boy Plotting Illegal Gun Deals With Islamist Militants

Leland Yee, the Democratic California state senator arrested Wednesday on federal corruption charges, plotted to obtain illegal guns for a Chinatown gangster less than a year after pushing wide-ranging bills to require micro-stamping, restrict magazine choice, and regulate private handling of legally owned weapons, according to an affidavit in support of his arrest.

Leland Yee spent a good deal of the last two years railing against the private ownership of firearms, lambasting American citizens who defend expansive protections of the right to keep and bear arms, and exploiting the abomination at Newtown for political gain. While he was doing this, he was apparently helping to put missile launchers and automatic weapons in the hands of what he believed to be the mafia, explaining blithely that “people want to get whatever they have to get,” and looking at Africa as an untapped market for arms dealers.

He was taped by the FBI discussing arms that could be obtained from the Philippines and claimed personal relationships with Islamic rebels in the Philippines, though the weapons were supposedly to be obtained from sources inside the Philippine military.

Yee is the third Democrat state senator to be arrested in California this week. Earlier it was state Sen. Rod Wright (perjury) and then Ron Calderon (bribery).

FBI agents arrested Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon Wednesday for allegedly accepting bribes in exchange for “the use of his official position.”  A Democrat, Cannon allegedly accepted more than $48,000 in cash, airline tickets, a hotel room, and even an apartment from undercover FBI agents.

The Democrat Speaker of the Rhode Island house resigned and announced he would not seek  re-election after FBI agents, along with agents from the IRS, the U.S. attorney’s office, and state police, raided both his Providence, R.I. office and home Friday.

"I Am Not a Criminal," said Senate Democrat Harry Reid As His Illegal Campaign Donor Is Jailed for funneling more than $130,000 in illegal campaign funds to the Senator's re-election committee in 2007. 

Just before the Federal Election Commission, the FEC demanded that Senator Reid he return $17,000 in campaign funds he had given to his granddaughter, a watch dog group, Cause of Action, filed ethics complaints against Senator Reid for  violating the chamber’s code of conduct by pushing to help a politically connected Las Vegas casino project get visas for foreign investors.

An old story in Western Journalism calls Harry Reid

one of the most ethically challenged politicians in office today. This report will review his alliances with corrupt individuals, his support of ACORN, his ties with organized crime figures and his chronic failure to comply with campaign finance laws.

So I'm not surprised that journalist, author and screenwriter Michael Walsh writes that's it's Time to Break Out the RICO Statute and Break Up the Democrats
