Cocktails & Popcorn: Judicial Watch, Clinton Foundation, Mark Meadows & John Huber - A Non-Profit Oversight Christmas Tale

Image result for christmas eggnog
Nothing takes the place of oversight
of non-profit organizations
for the christmas holiday!
What am I watching?

All I can tell you is that Mr. Tom (my pet name for Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch) may have some serious issues in the future.

You cannot advocate a judicial case in the congressional branch for the purposes of financial benefit, where, in this instance, it is for a 501c3.

That is called a propaganda operation because we have no idea about the foreign funding of Judicial Watch, due to the fact that it is a non-profit.

That is why Huber did not show up for this shit show.

Hell, I would not show up, either!

There was no one from DOJ, IRS,  or any OIG who was currently employed with U.S. government.

Seriously.

Talk about an ex-parte hearing, I actually experienced an episode of Post Traumatic Fraud and do not know if I shall ever recover.

The Committee did not even extend invitation to testify to the other foundations (Trump, Clinton et al & FACT).

I believe it is difficult to call a non-profit to testify in congressional hearing when that non-profit is not a 501c3, or even incorporated, for that matter, due to it being a Corporate Shape Shifter, but hey, what do I know?

I know Mr. Tom is not even a licensed attorney, so how is he allowed to represent Judicial Watch as the President of a 501c3 non-profit organization, as a litigant, to speak upon live litigation, in the capacity of a licensed attorney, in a formal congressional hearing on oversight of non-profits?
Judicial Watch, Inc., a conservative, non-partisan educational foundation, promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law. Through its educational endeavors, Judicial Watch advocates high standards of ethics and morality in our nation's public life and seeks to ensure that political and judicial officials do not abuse the powers entrusted to them by the American people. Judicial Watch fulfills its educational mission through litigation, investigations and public outreach. 
2016 GROSS RECEIPTS $67,005,461.00
2016 ASSETS $92,365,593.00
Did Mr. Tom use a Congressional Committee for personal inurement by promulgating propaganda into the congressional record, using congressional resources, to sway the courts?

I am unable to present any specific answers to that question, but I bet the Mueller OSC team could.

Perhaps, that is another reason why Huber did not show up.

There was not one mention of trafficking tiny humans.

Priorities, you know, it is that time of season for giving.

Why Mark Meadows would allow such a fundraiser spectacle to take place, using taxpayer dollars, knowing fully well that there are multiple, ongoing investigations into the actions and omissions of the so-called Clinton Foundation, is just beyond belief.

But, hey, what do I know?

I know Mr. Tom is going to need a few cocktails because Judicial Watch is now a willing participant of oversight as a non-profit organization.

I also know that Mark Meadows will be enjoying rum infused eggnog over the holidays.

And,, in the words of Tom Fitton, the Clinton email scandal was uncovered as a result of Judicial Watch's actions, just remember that.

DOJ: New York Foster Care Agency Busted For Tricking Out Little Girls

Yes, this happens all the time in foster care and it is all billed to Medicaid.

Foster kids have to eat and the agencies have to maximize revenues, but of course, no one wants to talk about it, so I present to you the industrial video of Legally Kidnapped to put this in a more warming light.

They do it all over the world because selling chattel is the oldest form of survival.

This is not the first time an issue of false claims has been addressed in the New York Child Welfare System.

I have provided the FCA settlement agreement, below.


"Have a great day!"


U.S. Attorney Announces Charges Against 19 Defendants For The Sex Trafficking Of Minor Girls And Young Women In New York State’s Child Welfare System

10 of the defendants in custody; 8 previously arrested; 1 remains at large

Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, William F. Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), and James P. O’Neill, Commissioner of the New York City Police Department (“NYPD”), announced the unsealing of five indictments and three superseding indictments charging a total of 19 with participating in the sex trafficking of minor girls and young women.  As alleged, the defendants trafficked or recruited to engage in prostitution at least 15 minor girls in the child welfare system, including at least nine minors who resided at a particular non-incarceratory residential treatment facility located in Westchester County (“Facility-1”).  Facility-1 provided housing for at-risk and troubled children and adolescents on behalf of departments of social welfare for certain counties in New York State.  
Eight of the 19 charged defendants were arrested yesterday, two are in state custody on unrelated charges, and eight other defendants were previously charged.  One remains at large.  These defendants were identified as part of an ongoing criminal investigation into the sex trafficking of minor victims, some of whom were as young as 13 years old, in the social welfare system.  As detailed below, the charges are set forth in a total of eight separate indictments. 
In each of these eight indicted cases, victims of the charged conduct included one or more minors who resided at Facility-1 and were in the New York State’s social welfare system.  The conduct charged in the eight cases occurred, as detailed below, between the years of 2010 and 2018. 
U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman stated:  “Children in the child welfare system are among the most vulnerable in our society.  As alleged in today’s charges, the defendants and their conspirators callously recruited girls as young as 13 from a residential treatment facility for at-risk youth, then sexually trafficked and prostituted them for financial profit.  Together with our partners in the FBI, we will work tirelessly to ensure that anyone who sexually traffics a minor is subject to the full force of the law.”
FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. said:  “Sex traffickers routinely prey on young people and those in our communities who are the most defenseless. As alleged, the defendants targeted vulnerable women and girls, including residents of a facility for at-risk children and adolescents, knowing that the victims would be more susceptible to their claims.  The FBI Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Task Force and our law enforcement partners will aggressively pursue and hold accountable anyone who exploits others for their own profit.”
The 11 newly charged defendants are CARLTON VANIER, RUBEN MORCIGLIO, SAEED NORRIS, LLOYD KIDD, LUIDI BENJAMIN, LAWRENCE WALSH, CIMMIE WRIGHT, ADRIENNE ROBERTS, CHRISTOPHER BULLOCK, DARIEL BRAHAM, and STEVEN LESANE.  These defendants and the defendants already in federal custody were presented yesterday in the Southern District of New York.
In addition to the charges against the new defendants, Superseding Indictments were unsealed against HUBERT DUPIGNY, HENSLEY DUPIGNY, NAZEER VICKERS, SEAN MERCHANT, REUBEN SANDS, MARTIQUE MCGRIFF, JERMAINE MYRIE, and JABARI KENNEDY, who were first charged in the summer of 2018 for their participation in the trafficking of minor victims and young women.

A chart outlining the charges and maximum prison sentences for each of the defendants is below.  The maximum potential sentences and the mandatory minimum sentences are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencings of the defendants would be determined by the respective judges.
Mr. Berman praised the outstanding investigative work of the FBI, the NYPD, and, in particular, the New York Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force.  Mr. Berman also thanked the New York City Department of Corrections and the Human Resources Administration for their assistance.  The prosecutions of these cases are being handled by the Office’s General Crimes and Public Corruption Units.  Assistant United States Attorneys Mollie Bracewell, Elinor Tarlow, Jacob Gutwillig, and Alex Rossmiller are in charge of the prosecutions.
