INTERESTING: Funny how some things leak; and some things don’t

There seemed to be no dispute over the claim that Epstein videotaped, for blackmail purposes, his famous clients. More than a year and a half after his death, where are the tapes?

Funny how some things leak; and some things don’t.

I’m still waiting for an in-depth investigation of the whole débâcle!

FRESNO, Calif. — On March 10, 2021, Jatinderieet “Jyoti” Sihota, 34, of Selma, was arrested on a federal indictment charging her with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and mail fraud for the submission of over $790,000 in fraudulent crop insurance claims, Acting U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced. The indictment was unsealed today following her arrest.

According to court records, from at least November 2013 through September 2016, Sihota controlled her family’s farms in Fresno and Tulare Counties that produced table grapes, plums, and other crops. The crops were sold through fruit brokers in California’s Central Valley to supermarket chains and other third-party buyers.

Throughout this period, Sihota and others caused her family’s farms to obtain federally backed crop insurance policies through the U.S. Department of Agriculture Risk Management Agency’s Federal Crop Insurance Program. They then submitted fraudulent insurance claims for crop losses due to excessive heat, rain, and other reasons that did not actually occur.

Sihota and others, including individuals at the produce brokers through which the crops were sold, altered records to misrepresent the varieties, quantities, and other information regarding the crops that were sold and submitted the records to the insurance program to support the fraudulent claims. These misrepresentations established sufficient crop losses to obtain insurance payments. When the insurance loss adjusters contacted Sihota and others to confirm the accuracy of the representations, they confirmed that the representations were accurate and complete, but in actuality, they were not.

Why is the Gooferment involved in “crop insurance”?

At the very least, there should be a insurance company in front of the Gooferment!


TECHNOLOGY: Speaking of old technology … … Laugh!

TIL that for 18 months, a village in Wales was mystified as to why their broadband internet crashed at 7am every morning, until engineers “picked up a large burst of electrical interference” springing from one dude turning on his very old TV.

And they didn’t even buy him a new TV?

I’d have “traded” it with them or begun to turn it off and on several times a day.

But, then I am just grumpy old fart.
