Obama Crony Sherrod´s Ugly
Suit Against Breitbart´s Widow

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 10/11/2013 7:27:06 PM

Law: An Obama official at the heart of the Pigford reparations scheme sues the widow of the crusading conservative who exposed her and a multibillion-dollar redistribution scam to African-American farmers. Hell hath no fury like an Obama administration official exposed for corruption or racism. On Wednesday, news broke that Shirley Sherrod, the former USDA official whose speech before an NAACP group revealing her angst about helping a white farmer got her fired, has decided to amend her lawsuit against the late Andrew Breitbart to name Andrew´s widow and mother of four, Susie Bean Breitbart. As Christian Adams recounts on PJ Media, Sherrod,

Here is the "MONEY Part of this Story"
FTA:"...Late to the story, but welcome, came the New York Times.

Its analysis found that Breitbart was right, that Pigford became not a redress of legitimate grievances but "a runaway train, driven by racial politics, pressure from influential members of Congress and law firms that stand to gain more than $130 million in fees."

Interestingly, among the claimants receiving Pigford cash were none other than Charles and Shirley Sherrod, whose farm collective, New Communities Inc., received $13 million. Time magazine reported that $330,000 was "awarded to Shirley and Charles Sherrod for mental suffering alone...."

Good ole Shirley is on a slippery slope and sees Some $13.3 Million bucks sliding out of her grasp. Nothing like a woman who is about to loose her wallet.

A potential racial bias claim against a govt agency that turned into a massive scam against taxpayers. Individuals in major cities that never even saw a farm in real life claimed to be farmers that were denied their "rights"
because they were black, when in fact, they misrepresented themselves as farmers. Many collected $50K plus for just signing a piece
of paper, illegally. And Sherrod was right in the middle of it. ( in my opinion ).

I don´t see Shirley losing her millions, I see her trying to get more. This article doesn´t do the damage to the taxpayers justice. Hundreds of million$ were paid to these ´farmers´ at $50,000 a clip. All they had to do was visit a lawyer´s office, fill out the form and voile, they´re $50,000 richer! Must be freakin´ nice. And that was one of the first things Preezy Down Low worked on after he got in office - adding a few billion $$ more to the trough. Enough to make you sick.

Soooooeeeeeyyyy, Shirley. [That´s pig talk for come ´n get it)

This case should go nowhere. Sherrod made plenty of money off the government through the Pigford suit, unfairly, IMHO.

Interesting that Susannah Breitbart is the daughter of actor Orson Beane, now a conservative himself. His father was a founder of the ACLU, and Orson Beane is a first cousin (removed) of Calvin Coolidge.

Just another example of what Zero means by "fundamental change". He will destroy everything that whitey built and transfer the spoils to the dark skinned victims domestically and worldwide. This was a reparations scheme just like ZeroCare, and we haven´t seen the worst yet. Get ready, because Hillary is waiting on deck to continue this destruction.

This story has the rot of a bad movie, Barack Obama and his underworld cell of Communist agitating organizers, taking law suit revenge on the widow of the patriot who exposed and saw to the firing of one of Obama’s most greed filled, corrupt cronies. And for a proper defense, it requires the immediate help of one or more highly visible, expert tough legally expert negotiators like Donald Trmp, who is famous for his dealings with many property owning, construction crooks, and who can brilliantly, easily, expose this crooked ex bureaucrat. Or try the always outspoken, Harvard professor, Alan Dershowitz, who has 30 years of court room victories as a visible criminal defense attorney. Even an elected official, a Senator no less, like the brilliant legal champion, Ted Cruz (just look at his amazing Supreme Court pleadings) attacking the abusive opposition and exposing it to the nines, with his legal skills. It could clear an ideal path to the Presidency. There you have it, the story of an abominable, Obama communist style female, exposed and fired bureaucrat taking revenge on the widow of the deceased hero who had exposed this greedy bureaucrat and got her fired.

Someone in my family was directly involved in this Pigford case while working for the government. It goes way back to the Clinton Administration. The Breitbart story doesn´t even began to cover how bad this was. People would be furious if they really knew what happened here. Other suites followed from other minority groups after they saw the money being paid out. Even though most of these lost in the court system, the Obama Administration chose to pay those also. You talk about getting your base lined up before an election - this was vote buying at its worst. Members of congress knew about this but wouldn´t touch it because it was a racial issue. I´ve known for a long time how screwed we are as a country when this can go unchallenged because congress is afraid to say anything because it may make them look racist.

I am suspecting that this isn´t just about getting money. I am beginning to wonder if maybe AB not only exposed this pig, but managed somehow to destroy her permanent E-ticket admission to the trough. Dems are not letting her in, and there has to be a huge nasty reason for that slight.

Being denied entrance to the money trough for any reason is a great reason for pigs like the Sherrods to go crazy like this.

Stay strong Mrs. Breitbart, we who carry the great name of Susan have to stick together. Susan in Hebrew means ´beautiful lily´. All the Lucianne eaglets are just waiting for the signal.

Heads up! Connect some dots here, folks!

Ryan Jullison was/is involved as well. Who is that, you ask? Well, he is involved in the Pigford Settlement, but wait! There´s more!

He was also the publucist behind the Trayvon Martin initiiative that was the sole reason Zimmerman got arrested. He was the one "working with CBS" and other MSM channels, doing the marches with Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton, working with Crump et al.

Think on that, long and hard and deep. Then, if you want to know more, go perform a search on The Conservative Treehouse. The dots are connected there, and will answer a lot of questions.

These ties run deep. Deeper than you ever imagined, to the point Jullison even tried to have an attack dog sicked on Sundance on an internet radio show, claiming hechad no right to use the Brietbart banner. This was rather recently.

Eagles UP! Wolverines, too!

Go! Read it!

Heads up, this may be about silencing the voice of Andrew Breitbart--as in every man, women, and organization who has taken up his sword since his death. The fact that they didn´t withdraw when Andrew died is calculating but now that they´re going after Suzy is evil. I figure it´s a balls to the wall drive to bring down Breitbart.com and every association it has...to scare America into silence.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February.

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Failure: ObamaCare fans are cheering the latest Congressional Budget Office report, which appears to show that it will cost less and cover more people than expected. But that´s true only if you ignore reality. We don´t always agree with the CBO, but we have long respected it as a credible source of budget numbers. Sure, its projections almost never turn out to be true. But simply too many variables are at play for anyone to guess such things perfectly, and it provides a more or less independent source of information on highly charged, partisan issues. Plus, its findings have a tendency to upset

Taxes: In his first campaign, President Obama pledged to cut taxes for all but the very rich. Now that another tax day has come and gone, it should be very clear that his pledge was just another in a long line of falsehoods. ´I can make a firm pledge," then-candidate Barack Obama said while campaigning back in 2008. "Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes."

Corruption: The standoff in the Nevada desert wasn´t about a desert tortoise or a rancher´s failure to pay grazing fees. It was about the state´s senior senator again enriching himself and his family at public expense. Sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant, and the end, at least temporarily, to the Bureau of Land Management´s armed standoff with Cliven Bundy may be due in part to the exposure given to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid´s role in the attempt to confiscate Bundy´s cattle and shut down his ranch.

WASHINGTON -- Latinos and immigration activists are warning of political peril for President Barack Obama and Democrats in the fall election unless the president acts boldly and soon to curb deportations and allow more immigrants to remain legally in the U.S. Many activists say Obama has been slow to grasp the emotions building within the Latino community as deportations near the 2 million mark for his administration and hopes for immigration legislation fade. With House Republicans unlikely to act on an overhaul, executive action by Obama is increasingly the activists´ only hope. "There is tremendous anger among core constituencies of the president

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
