Acorn, Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, and slavery reparations are the real agenda driving the Pigford Settlement, the multi-billion dollar Black farmers’ pay out according to conservative investigative journalist Andrew Breitbart.
Pigford was the lead plaintiff in the original class action suit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The distribution of subsidies in the early 1980s to mid l990s was at issue, with “sympathetic USDA administrators” agreeing to settle the case at taxpayer expense.
Breitbart recently told a radio audience these were the factors behind Obama’s largest fleecing of U.S. taxpayers in history. Breitbart maintains Acorn is being used in this exchange of our dollars for solidifying the Black vote in the South, thereby blunting the conservatives’ hold on Dixie.
Breitbart claims the phrase “attempted to farm” was the prevailing mantra needed to enter the consent decree worked out by our government and lead attorney Al Pires who is the mastermind behind four different settlements according to the journalist.
Now keep in mind that while the government only lists 40,000 Black farmers in the ENTIRE country, there will be payouts to 90,000 “farmers” more than double those in the original Pigford settlements, which has now been reopened for the FOURTH time!
Only U.S. Representative Stephen King (R-IA) is stepping up to stop the fleecing of us taxpayers. He is saying this Pigford settlement is “full of fraud, that’s. . what it amounts to . .is paying REPARATIONS to Black farmers in America.” “We don’t do reparations in America,” King added.
Soon after taking office, Obama pledged that in addition to the original multi million dollars already allocated, another $1.5 billion would be made available for these payoffs.
The latest Pigford settlement is worth another $1.25 billion and the Cobell settlement is paying $3.4 billion to American Indians because government agencies failed to properly manage their oil and mineral rights royalties.
There is a small coterie of concerned reporters including Eric Kleefeld who are actually telling us how much of our money is being used for these political payoffs.
Kleefeld quotes King as intending “to blast the government’s discrimination settlement with African American farmers as reparations.” King vows that investigations are going to continue.
Will women and other liberal “farmer voting blocs” try to get into the act? Where will this all end? Our country is OUT OF MONEY and this is shaping up to be the largest fleecing of us taxpayers in our country’s history!
