“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.”
To get an idea how the federal government spends your hard earned tax dollars at a time unemployment is high, no jobs, the national debt is $14 trillion and our credit rating has dropped to AA from AAA for the first time ever, read the following:
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 2010 Census data, the total number of black farmers throughout America is only 39,697. Hmmm... by the Official USDA 1990 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 good ole 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 race fraud. Can you guess?
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.
But Andy Breitbart knew. And on Monday, July 22, 2010, he cleverly laid a trap which Sherrod and Obama + his cronies - - stumbled headfirst into which has now resulted in the entire world discovering the existence of this corrupt financial judgment.
As for Ms. Sherrod, well, she’s discovering too late that her cry of ‘racism’ to the media which was intended to throw the spotlight on Breitbart has instead thrown that spotlight on herself and the huge corruption. But who cares. She got what she wanted and has vanished from public view.
However, the perpetrator of that law passed in dead silence leading to unlawful claims & corruption is still trying to fool all of us and doing a good job.
Go to Google and read for yourself “Pigford vs. Glickman”, or “Pigford Obama”.
As some have said, “The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who continue to keep him as their President.”
That’s my story and I am sticking to it.
