BREAKING! Trump Just Took Down ALL 7 Of Them! Prison WON’T Be Fun!

THEY DON’T BELONG HERE!!!!

Published

on

There is no doubt that some families will eventually fall on hard times and need assistance to get back on their feet. When that occurs, there are plenty of government programs and charities that give that much-needed push to help people find their footing again. However, there are people out there that take advantage of these programs designed to help and use them as a financial windfall. Though what makes that crime even worse is that under the Obama administration those cases of fraud only increased and President Trump has had enough of it.

Over the last year, the Trump administration has been busy cracking down on welfare fraud in our country and has made some HUGE strides in shutting down these criminal rings. The amount of money these welfare leeches have stolen from the American taxpayer is astounding which only proves why Trump is serious about revamping the welfare program, and it is about time.

For instance, investigators in Grand Rapids, Michigan busted a food stamp crime ring that was run by three Muslim brothers. Emad Khalil Karaein, Jawad Khalil-Ahmad Karaein, and Khader Khalil Karaein ran a Middle Eastern Market where they operated their crime ring. The brothers were discovered to have cost the American taxpayer $736,000 from EBT and $544,000 from WIC over the course of nine years. Thankfully, these brothers were caught and sentenced to prison for their gluttonous crime, but that was just the beginning of how widespread this welfare scam was.

As investigators continued to dig into cases of welfare fraud across the country they were taken aback at how rampant it had become. Millions of dollars worth of food stamp fraud were found predominately in convenience stores that were found in low-income areas where the majority of individuals receive food stamps through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). So to show the millions of dollars these criminals have taken away from the federal government, here are the seven most prominent takedowns of food stamp fraud of 2017, and you can be sure this next year will be even more significant.

Here is more from Breitbart:

1. Ohio Convenience Store Owner Sentenced to 33 Months in Prison for $2.8 Million in Food Stamp Fraud

A former Ohio convenience store owner got caught carrying out a $2.8 million food stamp fraud scheme where he allowed benefit recipients to exchange their food stamps for cash.

The USDA revealed in an audit that the store, Breaden Market, cashed in on SNAP benefits more than ten times the amount of larger stores in the area, raising red flags among investigators.

A judge eventually convicted and sentenced George Rafidi, 62, to 33 months in prison in February and ordered him to pay that $2.8 million back.

2. Florida Investigators Discover More than $20 Million in Food Stamp Fraud

The Division of Public Assistance Fraud, which works within Florida’s Department of Children and Families to investigate welfare fraud, uncovered $20,719,036 worth of food stamp fraud in South Florida over the past fiscal year.

The agency said it uncovered the majority of fraud when paging through SNAP benefit applications stating fraudulent household information.

3. Baltimore Man Sentenced to Four Years for $3.7 Million Food Stamp Fraud

A Baltimore store owner got slapped with a four-year prison sentence for carrying out $3.7 million worth of food stamp fraud.

Mohammad Shafiq, 51, was one of 14 other Baltimore-area retailers sentenced to $16 million worth of food stamp fraud, where they exchanged SNAP benefits for cash.

The judge ordered Shafiq to pay back that $3.7 million to the federal government and serve three years of supervised release following the end of his sentence.

4. Three Wisconsin Men Who Carried Out $1.2 Million Food Stamp Fraud Sentenced to Hard Time

A judge sentenced three Milwaukee, Wisconsin, convenience store owners—Kanwar Gill, 67, Raviinder Gill, 27, and George Nance, 59—to prison terms ranging from 15-20 months in October after the three had been found guilty of exchanging cash for SNAP benefits.

Their store, Quick N EZ, had been an authorized retailer that accepts food stamp benefits, but the $1.2 million in benefits the store redeemed was far beyond the amount the small convenience store was expected to redeem.

Records show that all three men had been ordered to pay back the $1.2 million in fraudulently earned money.

5. Seven Food Stamp Fraud Recipients Plead Guilty to Taking Part in $5 Million Food Stamp Fraud

Although most people who carry out massive food stamp fraud are store owners and shopkeepers, sometimes the beneficiaries themselves take part in the fraud.

Seven South Carolina women who received SNAP benefits as part of a $5 million scheme pleaded guilty to defrauding the government of more than $20,000.

The judge, however, ruled that the women could avoid jail time if they paid back the fraudulently-obtained money by the end of 2017.

The store owners involved in that scheme were not so lucky—three out of the five-store owners faced five-year prison terms and were expected to pay back up to $5 million to the federal government.

6. Fundamentalist Mormon Sect Conducts $11 Million Food Stamp Fraud

Not all food stamp fraudsters are convenience store owners or food stamp recipients.

The FBI recently took down a fundamentalist Mormon sect in Utah after discovering that Lyle Jeffs, the former polygamous sect leader, orchestrated an $11 million food stamp scheme that involved transferring benefits to a communal warehouse and several front companies.

Jeffs reportedly had several female members of the sect carry out food stamp trafficking.

A judge sentenced Jeffs to five years in prison and ordered him to pay $1 million of that money back to the federal government.

7. Iraqi Immigrant Pleads Guilty to $1.4 Million Food Stamp Fraud

An Iraqi immigrant pleaded guilty to $1.4 million in food stamp fraud in November for conspiring with others to defraud the U.S. government.

Ali Ratib Daham, 40, of Maine, gave customers cash in exchange for SNAP and Women, Infant, and Children (WIC) program benefits. He then redeemed the full value of the benefits to obtain more money from the government fraudulently.

The naturalized U.S. citizen is expected to face a harsh prison sentence for his crime—he faces up to 20 years behind bars and will most likely be expected to pay back the $1.4 million to the government.

All of these criminals should work off the money they stole from the American people and then some. It is egregious to witness this level of fraud happening in our country unchecked for so long while real people are suffering. No one is saying that people should not have access to government assistance if they fall on hard times but this is downright disgusting.

Thank goodness President Trump is doing what he can to shut down those that commit welfare fraud and give back to the American people.

BREAKING News From DC! THEY Caught HIM!!! ENJOY PRISON

ROT IN HELL SCUMBAG

Published

on

This is just unbelievable on every level!

The United States Justice Department has now announced that an ex-CIA agent suspected by FBI investigators of helping the Chinese intelligence dismantle American spying operations and identify informants in China has finally been arrested.

In addition to this stunning revelation, it’s also been confirmed that the way this former officer managed to act in favor of China´s interests is the most disturbing detail of this case, which involves the FBI and their corruption that runs through the core of the organization.

Since the agency took five years in executing actions against the suspected spy it gave him five long years in which he had more than enough time to successfully sell multiple batches of classified US Intelligence information.

But what appears to be one of the most curious details about this man is the fact that he decided to travel to the states back in 2012 in order to live with his family in Virginia. During that time agents of the bureau searched his luggage during hotel stays in Virginia and Hawaii and were able to find two small books which contained classified information giving the identities of CIA assets in China. But what’s perhaps the most disturbing part of this whole saga is that after being questioned by FBI officers in 2013, this traitor was actually allowed to return to Hong Kong. This is something the treasonous anti-American Barack Hussein Obama Administration should have never let happen.

But now this traitor came back to the states where he has now been arrested. And to add to the mystery no one seems to understand his motive for his return if he had prior knowledge he would be arrested the moment he got off the plane.

 

Conservative Daily Post Reports:

JUST IN: Obama FBI Gave Arrested CIA Officer FIVE Years To Sell Classified Material To China, Sources Killed

The FBI lasted five years in executing actions against the suspect, a time in which this person successfully sold classified information.

Yesterday, the Justice Department announced that an ex-CIA agent suspected by investigators of helping the Chinese intelligence dismantle American spying operations and identify informants has finally been arrested. In addition to the way this former officer managed to act in favor of China´s interests, one of the most revealing details of this case involves the FBI. After all, this agency lasted five years in executing actions against the suspect, a time in which this person successfully sold classified information.

Naturally, the collapse of the spy network represented one of the worst intelligence failures in the history of the United States. The name of the ex-CIA officer is Jerry Chun Shing Lee, a 53-year-old man who was quite useful to the Chinese regime.

His arrest capped a strong FBI inquiry that started in 2012, just two years after the CIA began losing its informants in China in the most mysterious way. When this situation was taken place, the main question was how the Chinese intelligence managed to get the agency’s most dearly held secrets and the information of so many sources.

Why the bureau refused to arrest Lee after originally finding the classified material in his books remains unclear. James Comey was the FBI director during that period.

At the time, some intelligence officials concluded that there had to be a mole inside the agency that was exposing its list of informants. Other intelligence officials believed that the Chinese regime managed to hack the agency´s covert communications. This one was used to communicate with the foreign sources of information.

Apparently, Lee has been living in China since 2007, the year in which he decided to leave the agency. At that time, he moved to the city of Hong Kong and started to work for a well-known auction house.

This man was apprehended at the Kennedy Airport in New York on Monday. Eventually, Lee was charged in federal court in Northern Virginia with the unlawful retention of national defense information.

The name of the ex-CIA officer is Jerry Chun Shing Lee, a 53-year-old man who was quite useful to the Chinese regime.

What seems to be one of the most curious details about this man is the fact that he decided to travel to America in 2012 in order to live with his family in Virginia. Reports revealed it was exactly during that trip that agents of the bureau searched his luggage during hotel stays in Virginia and Hawaii and found two small books that contained classified information. After being questioned by FBI officers in 2013, he went back to Hong Kong.

So far, it remains unclear why Lee decided to return to the United States this month, considering that he probably knew he was going to get arrested. While many believe this could be a part of a major plan, it is possible that this was nothing more than an intelligence move by the CIA and FBI.

In the books, the 53-year-old man wrote several details about certain meetings between the agency´s informants and undercover agents. According to court papers, Lee wrote the real name of these individuals, as well as their phone numbers. Prosecutors assured that the information that Lee had in those books reflected the same data contained in the classified cables that this man had written while he was working at the CIA.

The number of informants lost in China rivaled losses in Russia and even the Soviet Union during the betrayals of Robert Hanssen and Aldrich Ames, formerly of the FBI and the CIA.

Thanks to Lee´s act, more than a dozen informants of the agency were imprisoned or killed by the Chinese regime. According to the New York Times, the number of informants lost in this country rivaled losses in Russia and even the Soviet Union during the betrayals of Robert Hanssen and Aldrich Ames, formerly of the FBI and the CIA.

One of the most curious details about Lee´s case is that the sworn affidavit unsealed yesterday doesn’t say whether there is any kind of evidence that he disseminated the classified data to the Chinese regime or any other foreign agents.

The affidavit was signed by FBI Special Agent Kellie O’Brien. He stated that agents of the bureau interviewed Lee in five different opportunities back in May and June 2013. Apparently, Lee didn’t mention having the classified documents. In addition, this man didn’t mention anything about the documents during certain encounters with former CIA colleagues.

According to court documents, Lee served in the U.S. Army from 1982 to 1986. He eventually joined the CIA in 1994 as a case officer, and eventually served in China during his career. Some former agency officials said that those who knew him always claimed Lee left the CIA quite annoyed.

Why the bureau refused to arrest Lee after originally finding the classified material in his books remains unclear. If convicted, this man faces up to 10 years in prison.

Please share if you agree we need to get to the bottom of this mess….

Muslim Refuses To Remove Headscarf In Bank, Gets WRONG Teller Who Figured Out What She’s Hiding

WE KNEW IT!

Published

on

Up until recently, businesses in the United States have had the right to refuse service to anyone that they wanted to and for any reason that they wanted to. Some put up signs, but in general, it’s the proprietors prerogative to serve who he wanted. Some even put up signs i.e. “no shirt no shoes no service” or something similar. That’s more of a friendly warning as to the general standards that a store might want to keep, but basically, it’s up to whoever owns an establishment to decide how they wanted to run their business. And if you don’t like it, you can take your business elsewhere.

Recently, it has become a big issue when bakers didn’t want to make a cake for a gay marriage, and the issue arose about who has to serve whom, and under what conditions. Our old friend Political Correctness rose up and decided to tell us what freedoms would be taken away, and sadly many people listened to him.

The most pressing concern of many businesses, especially institutions dealing with money, is, of course, safety. They have rules about what you can bring in, and what you can wear. This is presumably because of what it might be concealing. That was the case with a credit union in Washington, where a young lady got it into her head that she was being discriminated against because when she broke the rules about how they would serve her, she was asked to comply.

This is what her Facebook post read:

“I went into Sound Credit Union in Kent, Wa to pay my bill as normal. The video above will show the discrimination that I faced today. I am a black Muslim woman and was observing Jummah, so I had my hood on. The teller asks me to ‘take off my hood’. In order to adhere to their policy, I ran outside to get my hijab. When I came back, two men before me were served with no issues, but both were wearing hats. Then I confronted the teller and he told me ‘it should be no issue, let me get my supervisor for permission,’. Instead of seeking a resolution, she chose to do this…watch the video.
I never want this to happen to anybody and NOBODY should ever be treated this way. Thank you.”

Via Q13 Fox:

“KENT, Wash. — It’s a possible case of discrimination. A Seattle-area woman claims she was refused service at a credit union because of the religious garments she was wearing.

It happened Friday at the Sound Credit Union in Kent.

Jamela is a black Muslim woman. She didn’t want to go on camera or talk specifically about what happened, but she did give us permission to show the video she recorded of what took place inside that bank Friday.

According to Jamela’s Facebook post, it all started when she was told by a teller to “take off her hood,” which she says she did, to abide by their policy.

She was wearing her religious garments that day.

She claimed two men were served before her and both of them were wearing hats.

So she then asked to speak to the supervisor there, and that’s when it seems things quickly got out of hand.

Jamela said she believes, in this case, she was discriminated against.

On Sunday, she said she is still very shaken up by this whole experience.

She said she does want this to happen to anybody, and nobody should ever be treated this way.

The bank has since made a statement:

‘We looked into the situation and agree that we did not handle it well. We want to express our deepest apology to the person involved. As a result, we are looking at our procedures and training and will make changes to make sure that a situation like this never happens again. It is clear our training needs to include more empathy and sensitivity to all cultures, because as a credit union we believe in equal treatment of all people.'”

What happened was that the employees were scared and worried that if she wasn’t obeying the rules, she might have a more devious reason. This is a financial institution that might have quite a few people wanting to rip it off. It’s sad that they not only can’t enforce the rules that they themselves posted, so plainly for all to see, but also that the employees have to live in fear of a PR nightmare, instead of protecting themselves.

The young lady in question seemed so irate that there were people who were let to have their ball caps on and were still served, but that argument doesn’t even pass the straight face test. In order to conceal something in a ball cap, you’d just about have to have a collapsable skull. So barring an alien invasion or a visit from the bionic man at the credit union, I doubt there’s much to fear there. And saying that a business has to treat everyone the same would be like saying that because Starbucks gives away free drinks to cops, they must give a free one to me as well. No, it’s their choice to decide not only what they do, but who they do it to, and how it’s done. If you don’t like it, you’re welcome (no, encouraged) to take your business elsewhere.

Man Finds Teen Who Was Kidnapped, Raped- Does The Unthinkable

HE DECIDED TO…

Published

on

A Minnesota farmer who rescued a kidnapped girl was given a reward for finding her, and decided to give it to her family rather than keep it for himself.

Earl Melchert was on his property one day when he spotted something moving. He first thought it was a deer, but got closer and was shocked to discover that it was 15-year-old Jasmine Block — who had disappeared a month earlier and was kidnapped by three men. The men reportedly held her hostage in an abandoned home and had sexually abused her.

When Melchert found her, Jasmine was attempting to escape her captors.

“Oh my gosh, this is the gal from Alexandria that’s been gone for 29 days,'” he told The New York Times, All That’s Fab reported. “It’d been on the news, it’d been online. It went national. It was on posters, in stores, her face, her picture. Right away I recognized her.”

Melchert signaled the girl over to his truck, helped her in and drove her to a police station. On the way, the girl reportedly saw one of her captors searching for her. She had escaped earlier when the three kidnappers were out. She had tried knocking on doors of nearby houses to no avail. She swam across a lake and walked through a field to Melchert’s property, where he then saw her.

After the rescue, Melchert was given a $7,000 reward for the girl’s return. He refused to accept it, however, and instead gave it to Jasmine’s family.

“What no one expected was the kindness and generosity that came straight from Earl’s heart today,” Police Chief Rick Wyffels wrote in a Facebook post, All That’s Fab reported. “He believes that young lady that came running towards him that September day is the real hero and without hesitation, Earl handed the reward over to her, followed by a big hug. Thank you Earl, it is people like you that make this world a better place.”

Melchert said he was proud to have helped save the girl.

“It’s the best thing I’ve ever done,” he said. “The family needs the money… to me, yeah, that’s a lot of money, but they need it way worse than I do.”

Many readers applauded Melchert for his generosity after such a brave act, and also praised the teen for being courageous enough to escape her kidnappers.

“There are two hero’s in this story. The good man that helped this young lady, the brave young lady that went through this horrible experience. May God help her get her life back & try to move on. God bless her for her bravery & endurance to make it thru this ordeal. Hope that the ones that are guilty are apprehended & put away a long time,” one Newsiosity reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.

“That’s a true hero. The one who rescued a girl not for the $$. We need more people like him. Glad the little girl is safe at home,” another wrote.

“First and foremost thank you for doing this to protect that young lady and your kindness for realizing how much that family needed the reward money God bless you sir,” another added.
