Gerald Walpin speaks: The inside story of the AmeriCorps firing

Dispute that resulted in firing involved stimulus money

At that moment, Walpin says, he had finished not only a report on the Sacramento probe but also an investigation into extensive misuse of AmeriCorps money by the City University of New York, which is AmeriCorps’ biggest program. Walpin says he told Eisen that, given those two investigations, neither of which was well-received by top Corporation management, the timing of his firing seemed “very interesting.” According to Walpin, Eisen said it was “pure coincidence.” When Walpin asked for some time to consider what to do, Eisen gave him one hour. “Then he called back in 45 minutes and asked for my response,” Walpin recalls.

The method of Walpin’s firing could be a violation of the 2008 Inspectors General Reform Act, which requires the president to give Congress 30 days’ notice, plus an explanation of cause, before firing an inspector general. Then-Sen. Barack Obama was a co-sponsor of that legislation. In the case of Walpin, Eisen’s efforts to force Walpin to resign could be seen as an effort to push Walpin out of his job so that the White House would not have to go through the 30-day process or give a reason for its action. When Walpin refused to quit, the White House informed Congress and began the 30-day countdown.

Fraud, waste, and now political corruption.

Hey, business as usual.

“Hope and change”

Just like Chicago!

The President was just protecting his big contributors.

Disgraceful!

POLITICANS: Campaign Finance Reform

Fee for Service

*** begin quote ***

The amendment was opposed by the finance industry, which gave nearly $300 million in campaign contributions to Congressional candidates in 2008, more than any other industry contributed during the same election cycle.

*** end quote ***

The problem all along is the illusion that gooferment can be “controlled”.

It’s roots are evil.

How about a rule that only real people can contribute to a campaign?

Oh, we have those already. That created “bundlers”!

How about a rule limiting amounts?

Oh, we have that already. That created “straw donations”!

How about a rule preventing foreigners?

Oh we have that already. That created “fake donors”!

See the politicians like the system just the way it is.

Corrupt!!!

Bullion and Bandits: The Improbable Rise and Fall of E-Gold

Jackson has finally registered E-Gold with FinCEN, and has begun applying to states for money transmitting licenses. The company is also blocking people who appear on the Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals and plans to follow bank procedures for verifying customer income and sources of transmitted funds. There are other plans in works to clean up the system as well.

Read this with an eye towards why this fool was targeted.

Think they care about catch bad guys?

Or, could it be that he was undermining their monopoly over “money”.

That stuff they laughable call “money” … Federal Reserve Banknotes.

Paper!

Fiat trash.

No, he was giving people an easy and cheap way to store value.

That couldn’t be “taxed” by inflation.

Imagine how much better the Chinese would be if they had 5T$ of gold as opposed to Uncle Sugar’s little green pieces of paper.

No, anyone who messes with that monopoly, will bring the goons out in force.
