Activities by Violent Far Left Groups

The Obama administration funneled billions of dollars to activist organizations through a Department of Justice slush fund scheme, according to congressional investigators and the GOP is looking to eliminate it.

“It’s clear partisan politics played a role in the illicit actions that were made,” Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, told Fox News. “The DOJ is the last place this should have occurred.”

Findings spearheaded by the House Judiciary Committee point to a process shrouded in secrecy whereby monies were distributed to a labyrinth of nonprofit organizations involved with grass-roots activism.

“Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations,” Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton told Fox News. “It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.”

There is a recent effort by Republicans to eliminate the practice, which many believe was widely abused during the Obama administration.

When big banks are sued by the government for discrimination or mortgage abuse, they can settle the cases by donating to third-party non-victims. The settlements do not specify how these third-party groups could use the windfall.

So far, investigators have accounted for $3 billion paid to “non-victim entities.”

Critics say banks are incentivized to donate the funds to non-profits rather than giving it to consumers.

“The underlying problem with the slush funds is we don’t know exactly where the money is going,” Ted Frank, director of The Competitive Enterprise Institute Center for Class Action Fairness, told Fox News. “Using enforcement authority to go after corporate defendants, DOJ bureaucrats are taking billions away from taxpayers to fund their pet projects overriding congressional preferences.”

"Nothing to see here" was all we heard from this administration corruption Cabal of Thieves, yet they attacked conservative journalists and Tea Party groups with threats from the FBI. Just another REASON for Obama, Holder, and Lynch to be jailed with Hillary! They have conspired to raise the national debt by extorting tax money from us all.

It should never be referred to as a "slush fund." It is clearly EXTORTION AND A SHAKEDOWN of banks and corporations. This should be the issue Republicans are grabbing, but they're worried about a Russian Amb. publicly telling Sessions he made a good speech. Republicans don't know how to fight back. 

Spot on ... but it is the Republicrats who have never learned to be strong and forthright, until Trump. We always seem to shake the hands of EVIL that calls our Republican as "obstructionists" when we don't give in to THEIR DEMANDS. Twitter has changed all that.

"We the People" have learned the political lessons of why our brand has co-conspirators against Conservatism and a limited government. My broom is ready and willing to sweep Flake & McCain out of control. No wonder McCain has been censored TWICE by the state GOP committeemen. He doesn't deserve our vote any longer ... but he knows he is still a better alternative than any Democrat, that is the weakness of the Republican brand today, and it is their weak plan of "election victory" where we are their pawns to power.

  I would like to see a published list of DOJ managers who lose their jobs, with all benefits severed due to their unethical conduct.  It's past time we started cleaning up the federal government and regaining public trust.

BINGO ... those vermin who have lived off the taxpayers should have their retirement "golden parachutes" slashed and burned. They violated our morals, integrity, and any semblance of ethics for self-interest gain at our expense. These parasites have sucked the vitality of the "land of opportunity" into a debt that will force us on our knees at the alter .... of EVIL deceit.  Audit the FED and identify those rat holes within government for it's all about the money schemes and debt.

Funny how we never hear about auditing the Fed any more, not even from Rand Paul.  I would love to see President Trump make that a goal, but he'd have to double his personal security.

Trump could retire the $20 trillion debt just by stopping this kind of thing. So we see this article but bet someone could write a similar article on every agency. Especially those departments concerning national security.  The agencies need full forensic audits to see where the money has been going.

We have heard many stories over the years from Judicial Watch. Has anyone ever heard of a single person being prosecuted by the resulting investigation? I have not, ever.

Treason is treason no mattere how you look at it. John Mc Cain and Jeff flake need to be on the list.

This is news? It was happening when I was in high school.

It IS NEWS to this extent, and having someone like Obama in the WH, to many of us who have never been spooks

"big banks can settle the cases by donating to third-party non-victims".  Oh, you mean like my kids Little League team or a PAC that supports Obama and his desire for a coup d'etat of the United States of America.

Suppose the earth and its inhabitants exist in order to identify just what causes mankind continually to suffer so many troublesome problems and afflictions.

At present, most persons decide to act on whatever happens with their thoughts. But doing so puts them in competition with one of the creator's natural laws first identified by Richard Wetherill.

How?

The answer is not complicated. People must stop basing their behavior on their personal thinking. Instead they have to act on the creator's thoughts, here being described in the English language as rational, honest, and morally right.

No longer should people reason from their concepts of good and evil, right and wrong, likes and dislikes, or whatever else comes to mind. Instead, mankind must think the creator's thoughts. That enables them successfully to do what is rational, honest, and morally right.

That may seem incredible until understood. But, consider that it is the way that mankind can escape the death penalty everybody has been paying since the days that people were created.

Join the survivors who have stopped their personal thinking. They now base their behavior on the creator's guiding thoughts to act in a way that is rational, honest, and morally right.
