1…………> Goodbye Diversity: Fake Immigrant
The Department of Justice today filed a complaint to revoke the naturalization of a Sudan native named Mubarak Ahmed Hamed, a man who entered the United States on an F-1 student visa and gained lawful permanent resident status through the diversity visa lottery program—for violating and conspiring to violate sanctions imposed against Iraq under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), as well as obstructing Internal Revenue laws.
On June 25, 2010, Hamed pleaded guilty to conspiring to illegally transfer of more than $1 million to Iraq in violation of federal sanctions, and to obstructing administration of the laws governing tax-exempt charities. Hamed was sentenced to four years and 10 months in federal prison on January 11, 2012.
2…………> A Crime Syndicate: Nevada
A federal indictment was unsealed today charging 36 individuals for their alleged roles in the Infraud Organization, an Internet-based cybercriminal enterprise engaged in the large-scale acquisition, sale, and dissemination of stolen identities, compromised debit and credit cards, personally identifiable information, financial and banking information, computer malware, and other contraband, alleging racketeering conspiracy and other crimes, as federal, state, local, and international law enforcement authorities arrested 13 defendants from the United States and six countries: Australia, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Kosovo and Serbia.
“Today’s indictment and arrests mark one of the largest cyberfraud enterprise prosecutions ever undertaken by the Department of Justice,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Cronan. “As alleged in the indictment, Infraud operated like a business to facilitate cyberfraud on a global scale. Its members allegedly caused more than $530 million in actual losses to consumers, businesses, and financial institutions alike—and it is alleged that the losses they intended to cause amounted to more than $2.2 billion. The Department of Justice refuses to allow these cybercriminals to use the perceived anonymity of the Internet as a shield for their crimes. We are committed to working closely with our international counterparts to identify, investigate, and bring to justice the perpetrators of these crimes, wherever in the world they operate.”
3…………> Felony Bank Conspiracy: Rabobank UA
Rabobank National Association (Rabobank), a Roseville, California subsidiary of the Netherlands-based Coöperatieve Rabobank U.A., pleaded guilty to a felony conspiracy charge for impairing, impeding and obstructing its primary regulator, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (the OCC) by concealing deficiencies in its anti-money laundering (AML) program and for obstructing the OCC’s examination of Rabobank. Rabobank will forfeit $368,701,259 as a result of allowing illicit funds to be processed through the bank without adequate Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) or AML review.
“Today, Rabobank is being held accountable for its illegal actions involving the movement of more than $360 million through the U.S. financial system on behalf of high risk customers,” said Special Agent in Charge Rowe. “In today’s environment of increasingly sophisticated financial markets, it’s critical that global institutions follow U.S. law and abide by our anti-money laundering regulations. The IRS is proud to share its world-renowned financial investigative expertise in this and other complex financial investigations.”
4…………> Done It Again: Congress Budget Hogs
In a not surprising show of “pork barrel” bipartisanship, Republican Senate leader Mitch “Harry’s Twin” McConnell and his Democratic counterpart Chuck “I cried tears for the Muslims” Pelosi agreed the two-year pact that would hike US defence and domestic spending by 300 billion of dollars, an debt-ballooning “monstrosity” that is expected to face opposition in the House of Representatives.
The Washington Post puts the figure at half a trillion dollars, while House of Representatives Democratic leader, Nancy “No, Amy is not my daughter” Schumer, engrossed herself in an eight hours idiotic speech, standing in high heels, blabbering about her opposition to any budget that does not include protections for so-called Dreamers, young immigrants who entered the US illegally as children.
Rep. Brooks, a member of the Freedom Caucus, slammed dubbed bill a “debt junkie’s dream”, while Freedom Caucus leader Jim Jordan of Ohio, said the agreement was a “monstrosity”, which he found hard to believe could have emanated from his own party.
Where was President Trump while this firefight was taking place? No one knows.
