Race hustlers are shaking down taxpayers for payoffs, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is falling for the scam.
In 1997, 400 African-American farmers sued the United States Department of Agriculture, alleging that they had been unfairly denied USDA loans due to racial discrimination during the period 1983 to 1997.
The case was entitled "Pigford vs. Glickman" and in 1999, the black farmers won their case.
The government agreed to pay each of them as much as $50,000 to settle their claims.
But then on February 23, 2010, something shocking happened in relation to that original judgment: In total silence, the USDA agreed to release more funds to "Pigford".
The amount was a staggering...... $1.25 billion. This was because the original number of plaintiffs - 400 black farmers had now swollen, in a class action suit, to include a total of 86,000 black farmers throughout America.
There was only one teensy problem:
The United States of America doesn't have 86,000 black farmers!!!!
According to accurate and totally verifiable Official USDA 2007 Census data, the total number of black farmers throughout America is only 39,697.
Hmmm... by the Official USDA 1992 Census data the US had only 18,816 black farmers!! Oops!!
Well, gosh - how on earth did 39,697 explode into the fraudulent 86,000 claims??
And how did $50,000 explode into $1.25 billion??
Well, folks, you'll just have to ask the woman who not only spearheaded this case because of her position in 1997 at the "Rural Development Leadership Network", but whose family received the highest single payout (approximately $13 million) from that action - Shirley Sherrod. Oops again!!
Yes, folks it appears that Ms. Sherrod had just unwittingly exposed herself as the perpetrator of one of the biggest fraud claims in the history of the United States — a fraud enabled solely because she screamed racism at the government and cowed them into submission.
And it gets even more interesting... Ms. Sherrod has also exposed the person who aided and abetted her in this
As it turns out, the original judgment of "Pigford vs. Glickman" in 1999 only applied to a total of about 16,000 black farmers.
But....in 2008, a junior US Senator got a law passed to reopen the case and allow more black farmers to sue for funds.
The Senator was Barack Hussein Obama.
Because this law was passed in dead silence, and because the woman responsible for spearheading it was an obscure USDA official, American taxpayers did not realize that they had just been forced in the midst of a worldwide recession to pay out more than $1.25 billion to settle a race claim.
Black farmer Jimmy Dismuke says it's fraud. He said lawyers went to black churches and told people who had never farmed to file for the money.
"People say well, how do I qualify?" Dismuke remarked. "And then [the lawyers] started talking about potted plants. They said if you had a potted plant, you can be a farmer. And if you have a yard and you fertilize it, you're a farmer."
Last fall the Obama Administration announced that it was going to allow several other minority groups (Native American, Hispanics and women farmers (heirs)) to file claims of discrimination against the Government (USDA). The ability of these groups to file these claims is a direct result of the African American community being successful in getting Congress (under the Clinton Administration) to approve billions for compensation of discrimination against USDA in 1998.
Love freedom or vote for Obama and "Change", to Communism.
"People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both."
