Senator’s husband stands to profit big from government deal

Yesterday, Mr. Crusty was kind enough to remind of the 2015 story below that focused on one of the poor senators from the “sanctuary state” of California…Senator (D) Dianne Feinstein.

Now if you poke around the Internet, you’ll come across a few pieces that have a little more detail, more meat, about this questionable deal by the esteemed Senator’s husband, but by all accounts…it appears that it actually went through with no further mention of it after Senator Feinstein simply told the media that she had nothing to do with the USPS decision that somehow brought her husband’s company into the picture.

So how much did the pair make?  Why didn’t some enterprising left-wing, cub reporter ask for their 2015 tax filings last year?  And it was all under the scrutiny and watchful eyes of that stalwart President at that time…Obama.

What really galls me about this one though, is what Senator Feinstein did during the nomination process of Judge Gorsuch, how she held herself up to be of such high standards, morally and ethically, and announced how she could not vote for his nomination, joining the Democratic filibuster against him… “Feinstein announces opposition to Gorsuch

Let’s be honest about this “slight-of-hand” operation pulled off the magician from California…She probably made Hillary and Obama very proud as she executed Liberal Play #300 right out of their playbook – Enrich yourself while can, whenever you can!

Ever wonder how lowly paid lawmakers leave office filthy rich?

Sen. Dianne Feinstein is showing how it’s done.

The US Postal Service plans to sell 56 buildings — so it can lease space more expensively — and the real estate company of the California senator’s husband, Richard Blum, is set to pocket about $1 billion in commissions.

Blum’s company, CBRE, was selected in March 2011 as the sole real estate agent on sales expected to fetch $19 billion. Most voters didn’t notice that Blum is a member of CBRE’s board and served as chairman from 2001 to 2014.

This feat of federal spousal support was ignored by the media after Feinstein’s office said the senator, whose wealth is pegged at $70 million, had nothing to do with the USPS decisions.

When the national debt is $18 trillion, a billion seems like small change.

    With 2,753,000 Federal Employees {BLS}…

    … we got NO Real Estate Professionals …

    … to handle the procurement / disposition / rentals / leases / etc….

    … of the largest property owner in America??

    Think about that…

    2.7 million Federal Employees…
    … of the alleged 135.5 million ‘total employment’ (BLS)…

    … did you get your 2% TODAY??

    NOW… consider where all these Federal Employees work:

    ** VA . . . . 325,935

    ** Army . . . . 257,360

    ** HLS . . . . . 192,765

    ** Navy . . . . 192,033

    ** Air Force . . 166,986

    ** DOD . . . . 98,326

    So-o-o-o-o… 1.23 million … or 46% of our “Federal Employees” …

    … actually work for our Military’s 1,413,000 Active Duty ??

    Meaning the USA has 2.65 million doing MILITARY stuff…

    and 1.5 million doing other Federal GOVT stuff??

    NOW, consider within all those Federal Depts…
    … no one thought of using Real Estate Professionals to handle directly ALL the property scams our Federal GOVT handles daily???

    OR… IF they need a plethora of ‘local’ real estate professionals… they can’t hire Independent Contractors … for less than the standard street 6%??

    Hell, most homes are going “for sale by owner”…
    … and most any village idiot can get a major reduction in that 6%…
    … JUST BY ASKING!!

    Follow the $$money$$…

    … forget any sane common cents??

    WHO got bribed at the GSE USPS HQ… to provide special dispensation to Senator Feinstein’s spouse?? You and I both know it happened — same as the $$million Chief Justice Roberts most obviously got to create BARAMAcare from NADA!!

    This past summer ACE rewrote the 8 miserably failed years of our 100% Fedederal $850 million Lake Okeechobee HH Dike Repair & Restoration project…
    … the 100% Federal GOVT ‘land’ – 143 miles of earthen spoil dike found so porous it could no longer contain the ‘navigable water’ of our 500,000 acre Lake Okeechobee…
    … indeed Class 1 ‘dam’ designation means probability of failure during normal operation!!

    Subdivided into 8 “reaches”… 3 contractors were hard at work on Reach 1… most perilous 22 miles from Port Mayaca on the eastern ‘rim’… to Belle Glade on the southern ‘rim’.

    Commie BARAMA shut down funding in 2009 … as NOT SHOVEL READY… as those 3 contractors finally completed $350 million Reach 1 by 2015!!

    NOW… today I see a GOP State Senator trolling the latest 50-50 Fed-state ‘water partnership’…
    … with our Senate President Joe Negron’s ‘southern reservoir’ reduced to just 4,000 acres – all alleged to allow no more algae blooms – IF it ever rains again!

    I listened as Neuvo Facts presented that Lake O is “not for holding water”… that completion of HH Dike isn’t meant to increase ‘holding water’… and that we have to spend these hundreds of $$millions … to save humanity from further disaster!!

    So, I ventured to the ACE site…
    … YEP, last August, 2016… Commie BARAMA’s ACE approved a “modified Lake O Plan”…
    … now claiming they coincidentally spent $870 million on that Lake O, etc. since 2001…
    … and will spend yet another $800 million by 2017 to ‘complete restoration’.

    VOILA… instead of fixing all 143 miles of HH Dyke… the “”GNU Plan”” is to do just another 35 miles up to Lake Port. All the other $$ is just for routine rehab of locks / culverts / etc. ACE has not bothered to maintain for decades!!

    The ZINGER… they don’t know the impact on how much more water Lake O will be holding… BUT they don’t expect to change the ‘normal 2008 regulation levels’??

    Bazoom… have the Sheeple Commie Zombies taken over our planet??

    Lake O was designed for 20 foot normal pool… now has a 50% probability of Dike breach above 15 feet. Last season torrents of water were sent East & West to relieve bursting pressures at 16 feet…
    … AND…
    Yours truly was suspended from ‘commenting’ on our local Gannett TC Palm newspaper – for daring copy and paste from earlier edition their careless posting of GOV Rick Scott’s actual news release, his letter to Commie BARAMA calling out his abject miserable failure in causing all our water problems defunding in 2009!!

    AND… folks wonder how we get any thang done in the DC Money Laundry??

    Politics is a crooked game… even in the best of places!!

    We need an ‘edit’ function Boss…

    Lake Okeechobee’s 500,000 acres will hold more ‘acre feet’ of water in one inch increase…
    … than a 40,000 acre ‘resevoir’…
    … or 10 times more than the planned 4,000 acre ‘pond’!!

    Also, ask any hydraulic water engineer what happens when you dig a hole in Florida’s limestone peninsula…
    … water tables are under 10 feet!! Sure, you can dig a 30 foot deep ‘reservoir’… which will be filled to capacity with ground water BEFORE you get your first rain!!

    So much for ‘sending the water south’ mantra of our environazi’s…

    NO, Senator Joe Negron does not find the time now to respond to this constituent’s emails concerning this issue…
    … too busy hosting US Sugar / Fanjul’s / other large agri-business interests his law firm represents??
