I recently learned that the United States has entered into a contract with one firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided that 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 bring in billions of dollars and, with that, millions of dollars in commissions for the one Company that is in charge of handling the sale and negotiation of the new leases.
What makes this such a matter of concern to me is that the Company that the Government has contracted with to conduct the sales (and the corresponding leases for the new locations of the displaced post offices) is owned by Richard Blum.
What? Didn't that name mean anything to you? Maybe I should re-phrase and say that the person that owns the company that is solely in charge of this multi -million- dollar transaction is Richard Blum the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

Cut and paste

Blum's wife, Senator Dianne Feinstein, has received scrutiny due to her husband's government contracts and extensive business dealings with China and her past votes on trade issues with the country. Blum has denied any wrongdoing, however.[3] Critics have argued that business contracts with the US government awarded to a company (Perini) controlled by Blum may raise a potential conflict-of-interest issue with the voting and policy activities of his wife.[4] URS Corp, which Blum had a substantial stake in, bought EG&G, a leading provider of technical services and management to the U.S. military, from The Carlyle Group in 2002; EG&G subsequently won a $600m defense contract.[1]
In 2009 it was reported that Blum's wife Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation to provide $25 billion in taxpayer money to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp, a government agency that had recently awarded her husband's real estate firm, CB Richard Ellis, what the Washington Times called "a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms."[5]

EXACTLY!

This stuff has been going on for so long and I find it interesting that, now that there is a President so-hated by some, people are all up-in-arms about government corruption.

Where were all of you when these things were (ALWAYS) going on during any of the Presidencies that you DIDN'T so strongly disagree with?

Why all the rage now?

Okay, we're sorry for being lazy and complacent before; we've repented. This sort of thing is not tolerable and we should not have been quietly allowing it under any administration.

Now on with the outrage!

Write your congressmen and women. Post on Facebook, write directly to those who are involved as well; uncover this into the light.

What is done in secret will be shouted from rooftops, now or in the righteous kingdom soon to come.

Never, ever, ever, ever give up.
