Leftist Corruption Update: Obama Refuses To Deport Fugitive Brothers Who Funneled $90,000 To His Campaign

Obama Refuses To Deport Fugitive Brothers Who Funneled $90,000 To His Campaign – Jammie Wearing Fools

.

.
Maybe we should start talking about the Isaias brothers instead of the Kochs.

The donations kept pouring in: hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to President Obama and more than a dozen members of Congress, carefully routed through the families of two wealthy brothers in Florida.

They had good reason to be generous. The two men, Roberto and William Isaias, are fugitives from Ecuador, which has angrily pressed Washington to turn them over, to no avail. A year after their relatives gave $90,000 to help re-elect Mr. Obama, the administration rejected Ecuador’s extradition request for the men, fueling accusations that such donations were helping to keep the brothers and their families safely on American soil.

“The Isaias brothers fled to Miami not to live off their work, something just, but to buy themselves more mansions and Rolls-Royces and to finance American political campaigns,” President Rafael Correa of Ecuador told reporters last month. “That’s what has given them protection,” he added, an allegation the Obama administration and members of Congress reject.

So we have fugitives funneling money to Obama and nobody seems to care.

Donations from the relatives of criminal suspects have proved vexing before. In 2012, Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign said it would return more than $200,000 raised by relatives of a Mexican casino magnate who had fled charges in the United States and sought a pardon to return.

The White House says that the decisions in the Isaias case are not influenced by donations.

Of course not. Even the NY Times, which reports this, is instead obsessing over the Kochs, two men who are legal citizens who’ve broken no laws. Yet these fugitives give thousands to Obama and get protection. We’re officially living in a banana republic.

Car Fanatic Builds Himself A £5M McLaren F1 Supercar Out Of Scrap For £20,000 (Pictures/Video)

Car Fanatic Builds Himself A £5million McLaren F1 Supercar Out Of Scrap That Is Capable Of 200mph – Daily Mail

A Top Gear fan has completed the ultimate motor challenge – building a £5million supercar using scrap and spare parts.

Amateur mechanic Jacek Mazur, 48, made his own replica McLaren F1 for just £20,000. The real thing would cost 250 times as much.

Mr Mazur, from Zabrze, Poland, spent eight years building the replica car, which can hit speeds of up to 200mph.

.

.

.

.
His previous projects have included building his own Lamborghini Countach and a Porsche 911 – but the British-designed McLaren F1 has been his ‘ultimate’ success.

Just 106 of the supercars are thought to exist and are out of reach for anyone unable to part with several million pounds.

In August this year, one sold for a staggering £5.1million at classic car auction Gooding & Company.

Mr Mazur, a health-and-safety advisor, said ‘As soon as I saw the McLaren F1 for the first time, I knew I had to have one. I couldn’t afford it so I knew I would have to build one myself.

.

.

.

.

.
‘Now when I am in my car people just stop and start taking pictures.

‘It is like being on a date with Angelina Jolie or Sandra Bullock in the centre of New York.’

He added: ‘In some ways it is actually better having a replica. The real thing is so expensive I would be afraid to take it anywhere for fear of getting it dirty.’

The incredible McLaren F1 has been built with the help of more than 30 of his friends and family.

.

.

.

.

.

.
He used the engine from an Audi and the brakes from a Mercedes.

The father-of-two also spent hours online researching photographs of the car and on blogs so that he could build his own parts and the streamlined shell of the vehicle.

Mr Mazur even paid tribute to his favourite TV show by building a tiny rear seat for Top Gear co-host Richard Hammond.

He said: ‘I named it the Hamonda in his honour. It is the same size as for a child but I’m sure Richard could be a fit.’

.

.

.

.

.
Despite spending thousands of hours in his garage he has managed to keep the support of his wife, Gosia.

She said: ‘This is his passion. Ever since I have known him he has loved cars.

‘He does spend a lot of time with them but it is better than him just sitting in the pub or doing something useless and boring.’

The McLaren F1 was designed by British engineer Gordon Murray and first built in 1991.

In 1998 it set the record for he world’s fastest production car in the world with a speed of 231mph.

Kidnapper Sues His Hostages For $235,000 To Cover Emotional Stress And Hospital Bills After He Was Shot By Police

Kidnapper Sues His Hostages For $235,000 To Cover Emotional Stress And Hospital Bills After He Was Shot By Police – Daily Mail

A man who held a Kansas couple hostage in their home while fleeing from authorities is suing them, claiming they broke an oral contract made when he promised them money in exchange for hiding him from police.

The couple has asked a judge to dismiss the suit.

Jesse Dimmick, of suburban Denver, is serving an 11-year sentence after bursting into Jared and Lindsay Rowley’s Topeka-area home in September 2009.

He was wanted for questioning in the beating death of a Colorado man and a chase had begun in Geary County, the Associated Press reports.

………………………………….

Dimmick contends he told the couple he was being chased by someone, most likely the police, who wanted to kill him.

In his hand-written court documents, Dimmick said: ‘I, the defendant, asked the Rowleys to hide me because I feared for my life. I offered the Rowleys an unspecified amount of money which they agreed upon, therefore forging a legally binding oral contract.’

He wants $235,000 in total, including $160,000 for his hospital bills after he was shot in the back by police and an additional $75,000 for emotional stress.

Neighbours have said the couple fed Dimmick snacks and watched movies with him until he fell asleep and they were able to escape their home unharmed.

Dimmick was convicted in May 2010 of four felonies, including two counts of kidnapping.

He was sentenced to 10 years and 11 months on those charges.

He was later sent to a jail in Brighton, Colorado, where he is being held on eight charges, including murder, in connection with the killing of Michael Curtis in September 2009.

A preliminary hearing originally scheduled for December 6 has been rescheduled for April 12.

No plea has been entered in the case.

Robert E. Keeshan, an attorney for the Rowleys, filed a motion denying there was a contract, but said if there was it would not have been binding anyway.

‘In order for parties to form a binding contract, there must be a meeting of the minds on all essential terms, including and most specifically, an agreement on the price,’ he wrote.

Mr Keeshan said the contract also would have been invalid because the couple agreed to let Dimmick in the home only because they knew he had a knife and suspected he might have a gun.

Thanks Barack… Weekly Initial Jobless Claims Rise 5,000

Weekly Initial Jobless Claims Rise 5,000 – Hot Air

The level of weekly initial jobless claims rose slightly this week by 5,000 to 417,000. The change pushed the 4-week average up by almost the same amount to 407,500, thanks also to an upward revision of last week’s report:

In the week ending August 20, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 417,000, an increase of 5,000 from the previous week’s revised figure of 412,000. The 4-week moving average was 407,500, an increase of 4,000 from the previous week’s revised average of 403,500.

The advance seasonally adjusted insured unemployment rate was 2.9 percent for the week ending August 13, a 0.1 percentage point decrease from the prior week’s revised rate of 3.0 percent.

The advance number for seasonally adjusted insured unemployment during the week ending August 13 was 3,641,000, a decrease of 80,000 from the preceding week’s revised level of 3,721,250. The 4-week moving average was 3,701,000, a decrease of 19,500 from the preceding week’s revised average of 3,720,750.

Again, this could be just statistical noise, although the upward pressure seems to be moving the range back to the 420K level seen throughout most of the second quarter of the year. We are moving in the wrong direction again the past few weeks, but not by large swings. Nevertheless, we know that Reuters never expects bad news, even when it’s merely incremental, so this report was…

New U.S. claims for unemployment benefits rose more than expected last week, lifted by striking Verizon Communications workers, a government report showed on Thursday.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits rose 5,000 to a seasonally adjusted 417,000, the Labor Department said, but still nowhere near levels that would signal a recession.

Striking Verizon workers filed 8,500 claims for jobless benefits last week, after submitting 12,500 applications the previous week, which covered the period for the August nonfarm payrolls survey.

That suggests that the strike would have a negative affect on the payrolls count, which will be reported on Sept. 2. The strike against Verizon has ended.

Well, if Reuters knew about the strike, then why is an increase in the claims filed “more than expected”?

We are making progress in one area of unemployment-data coverage. Reuters unexpectedly didn’t include any reference at all to its 400K myth this week after I challenged them to back up their claim with actual data. We’ll see if that’s a trend or merely an anomaly in the series.

$14,000: The Amount A Florida Unemployment Office Spent On Superhero Capes – The Blaze

Florida officials are investigating an unemployment agency that spent public money to give 6,000 superhero capes to the jobless.

Workforce Central Florida spent more than $14,000 on the red capes as part of its “Cape-A-Bility Challenge” public relations campaign.

The campaign featured a cartoon character, “Dr. Evil Unemployment,” who needs to be vanquished.

Florida’s unemployment agency director asked Monday for an investigation of the regional operation’s spending after the Orlando Sentinel published a story about the program.

State director Cynthia Lorenzo said the spending appeared to be “insensitive and wasteful.”

Workforce Central Florida Director Gary J. Earl defends the program, saying it is part of a greater effort to connect with the community.

The agency says it served 210,000 people during its last fiscal year, placing nearly 59,000 in jobs.
