Dianne Feinstein's husband gets richer and richer



 All In The Family
The US has entered into a contract with a real estate firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided it no longer needs these buildings, many of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country.

The sale of these properties will fetch billions of dollars and a handsome 6% commission to the company handling the sales. That company belongs to a man named Richard Blum. Who is Richard Blum you ask?
 
Why the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein, that's who. What a bunch of crooks we have running this country!
 
Senator Feinstein and her husband, Richard Blum, stand to make a fortune. His firm, C.R. I., is the sole real estate company offering these properties for sale. Of course, C.R.I. will be making a 6% commission on the sale of each and every one of these postal properties.
 
All of these properties that are being sold are all fully paid for. They were purchased with U.S. taxpayers dollars, and they are allowed free and clear by the U.S.P.S. The only cost to keep them is the cost to actually keep the doors open and the heat and lights on. The United States Postal Service doesn't even have to pay property taxes on these subject properties. Would you sell your house just because you couldn't afford to pay the electric bill?  Well, the Post Office is.
 
How does a powerful U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with such a sweet deal?
A powerful United States Senator's husband is standing by, all ready to make millions from a U.S. taxpayer funded enterprise.
No one in the mainstream media is even raising an eyebrow over his 6% commission on the sale of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of quasi-public assets.

True on Snopes:

Right.  Dianne Feinstein does NOT get involved with Congressional business that has anything to do with her husband...REALLY???...because a guy in an article from San Francisco and which is on Snopes SAYS SO!! :-)   There's a choice piece of property in Santa Monica, a very large one, with a huge Post Office facility on it..............it's for sale!  SURPRISE! $$$$  Lucky Dianne Feinstein!    She might not have been involved (baloney) but she sure will benefit!

The corruption runs deep and wide. Sheesh.

This must go viral. There is a serious conflict of interest and it can't be allowed to go forward.

Impertinent said...

The problem is their arrogance and sheer disdain for the American people. There's nothing...nothing that they don't think they can get away with, parse, obfuscate, lie, bullshit us about.

We're supposed to just take their word for it...that there's no conflict....it's just a coincidence. Well I for one don't think it's luck or a coincidence when they go in as paupers and retire as millionaires after getting a $175K salary and benefits for their term.

Congress has an 18% "approval" rating. And thats cause we know they're corrupt, crooks and thieves in it for themselves.

This country is broken...and since it is...whos fault is it then? The ones who broke it are always trying to "fix" what they broke?

We're better off with high school grads or GED's running the country. Cause all the Ivy league swells there ...certainly continue to do a pitiful. lousy job...even with their JD degrees.

Ed Bonderenka said...

This is no different (same state even) than Pelosi.

Z said...

Always, it sure does.

Cons on Fire....people will NEVER hear this. Only Conservatives will, maybe, and even then, whatever media mentions it outside the conservative media, will be slamming it as if this is just "all politics". Like they're doing for the very important IRS scandal, and the AP and F&F scandals which you'll notice have all but disappeared from view.

Imp...you bet. just TAKE THEIR WORD FOR IT... this is amazing.

Ed..exactly right, but this is not a California thing; It's just plain corruption and we're not the only ones, trust me.

Impertinent said...

@Z:

"It's just plain corruption and we're not the only ones, trust me..."

Oh we know that...Joisey has ( had ) Lautenberg, Menendez and Corzine...we have Rubio...DW Shitz and Alan Grayson.
New Yuk has Bloomturd and Cumo. Chicago has Rahm and Daly.
AZ has Mc Pain. 100 scumbags in the Senate.

We ain't braggin'.

Impertinent said...

Here it comes...the most absurd scumbag dembagger comes out from under his rock and drops his brains into his Depends with this Gem.

And the persecution goes on and on and on...

"You can thank the Electronic Privacy Information Center for forcing the Department of Homeland Security to release its list of “keywords” that are used to by its agents to monitor you on Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites.

The list, including phrases, reveals which words you probably want to avoid or else risk being flagged and eyeballed as a possible terrorist or someone who is otherwise posing threats to the United States.

Words included such innocuous terms as: “Militia,” “exercise,” “cops,” “national security” and “facility.” Interestingly and of note, “jihad” was not included, nor were the words “Middle East,” “Arab,” “Muslim,” “terrorist” or “pressure cooker.” Perhaps those are on a different DHS red flag list?

And here's one of those Patriots that "brought these troubles on themselves" according to the aforementioned POS from under the rock.

DiFi and hubby have been dipping their beaks for some time.

Hard to tell how much she got paid off for the prescription drug disaster.

This one doesn't seem horrible ... yet.
You don't want prime property lying idle and if her husband realizes a market price to buyers who will generate growth then no harm is done.

The dumb DINO bimbo has done worse.

FrogBurger said...

I don't know if it's corruption per say but that's why you get in politics in the first place: to get the sweet deals.

It's disgusting, especially when the ones getting the sweet deals speak about redistributing wealth and all other craps like this. I have a lot more respect for the communist blue collar than the fake communist white collar conman or con-woman like those people. I actually think those people are the scums of the earth.

And that's why they need limited power. But again, you all know that.

Z said...

Ducky "realizes a MARKET PRICE"? Yes, how beneficial to us...particularly that he'll get 6% of that market price...he and his wife; what benevolence :0)

Get it now?

FrogBurger, imagine if a Republican was doing this (not saying they haven't, of course, but...really?).
Also, I'd have thought we try to avoid this kind of thing when we're in Congress? Doesn't look good; asks for criticism? But, of course, we haven't the media we used to have so nobody'll even know and they're counting on that.
But, what the heck...those were the days.

Pris said...

FB, this is why we need term limits for all politicians! They become spoiled, corrupt, and beltway elitists! For them, It becomes more about them and to hell with the American people, and our country.

Imp, perhaps it would be a good lesson about Freedom of Speech, if everyone online purposely used those words. That example should go viral!!
Wow, if this governmental political correctness keeps up, Orwell must be spinning in his grave!

Z said...

Imp..I'm almost afraid to open your link when I get home...if I have any gas left!
I'm in charge of the big dinner Thursday night for 175...at least it's not the 275 of February, but...so many details!
And it's going GREAT.

FrogBurger said...

Z, Republicans, Democrats, I'm so exhausted and disappointed that it doesn't matter to me anymore who does what. A corrupt politician is a corrupt one.

I'm really jaded overall. I recently read an article on Reason.com by a French economist on the budget and spendings, and all in all, both parties have a catastrophic record. So I've given up on Washington overall.

JonBerg said...

Z,

I recommended your post today to most of my E-mail addressees.

Z said...

FrogBurger, it matters to me. As much as I dislike the GOP, I know that Conservatism is better than the socialism our leftwingers are pushing us into.

JonBerg, thanks SO much! I appreciate that.

FrogBurger said...

Z, Conservatism isn't a party. I'm not giving up on ideas. I'm giving up on the men. And the political system.

Mustang said...

Every politician is vile, which is why we should impose term limits. Term limits won't give us better politicians; it will only diminish the opportunity of political scum to scam us while enriching themselves.

Of course, the Supreme Court doesn't want to impose term limits, illustrating that there is NO trustworthy branch of government. But we can do it at the ballot box … or COULD do it at the ballot box if our voters weren’t idiots and the voting system wasn’t broken.

Impertinent said...

I'm now convinced that goal of these cretins isn't to raise the poorer up...but to lower the standard of living and attack the successful.

If it isn't time for a huge uprising soon...then there will never be a country that we'll call our own ever again.

I don't think we're any better than Venezuela or Russia right now.

Jack Whyte said...

In the previous brouhaha, the states stood with the people, and the people stood with their states. Now our states an eunuchs .... so I don't see an uprising being very successful.

Z said...

Frog..it's all we've got at this point. Let's hope better men come to the fore.

Imp...that is so true....it's ALL about lowering the standard of living for everyone because this mentality hates success, hates the rich, hates a strong healthy military arsenal..and is playing on the emotions of the poor and "disenfranchised" to get what they want.
Today, a fellow worker here said "I feel so sorry for the poor" I said "I feel sorry for them, too, but we need to protect the rich even MORE because the rich won't be hiring them soon because they won't be able to afford them PLUS they can't afford this new healthcare act so they'll be hiring less and firing, and the rich won't be buying lovely expensive things so all that profit/tax is gone, and the rich will be reduced to tatters so we'll all, rich and poor, need to get in metaphorical (hopefully) cheese lines......

Mustang said...

I feel sorry for the poor, too. I feel sorry that they’re so dense they’d rather have an Obama-phone than a job. I feel sorry that they voted for an idiot who prefers taxing the crap out of the rich people so that rich people can no longer afford to expand their businesses and hire employees. I feel sorry that poor people would rather be beholden to a thug politician than to develop a sense of pride in their own accomplishments.

FrogBurger said...

Let's hope better men come to the fore.

Rule #1 of my life: never put my hopes into a politician. Otherwise I may just hang myself right away.

Impertinent said...

Looks like Sibelius let the cat of the bag...the hag.

She gave us a glimpse of the future of Oboobycare when she coldly stated...in the case of a 10 year old..."Someone lives and someone dies".

Where do we get beotchs like her, Kagan, Sotomayor, Nappy Big sis and Hillary?

Impertinent said...

@Mustang:

"sorry that poor people would rather be beholden to a thug.."

The black Baptists are busy rewriting passages in the Bible to prove that the Black Messiah has indeed descended or ascended from_______( fill in ) and has now fulfilled the prophecies and filled their cupboards.

Ya say...Hallelujah....he has come.

dmarks said...

In everything Feinstein votes for the rulers to have more power and wealth, wealth which is taken from the ruled at gunpoint. She like her political compatriots is in it for avarice.

Conservatism is indded much better than socialism.
