US India Ambassador Resigns Amid Corruption Investigation

The resignation of the United States ambassador, Nancy J. Powell, was greeted by many in New Delhi’s diplomatic community Tuesday with a sense of hope that some of the grinding disputes between the United States and India might soon be settled.

In the wake of December’s arrest and strip-search in New York of Devyani Khobragade, an Indian consular official, Indian diplomats have begun a series of investigations into the American Embassy School, the United States duty-free commissary and the American Community Support Association, a recreational club for expatriates on the United States Embassy compound.

POLL:  Do you anticipate a collapse of the US dollar?

The more the Indians looked, the more outraged they became. School administrators have quietly admitted that for years the school undertook a variety of tax-avoidance schemes, including one in which they instructed some female teachers whose husbands also worked at the school to list their occupations on visa applications as “housewife.”

Indian officials are refusing to renew teacher visas until the case is resolved, leading nearly 20 teachers to leave in recent weeks. Without a quick resolution, nearly a quarter of the school’s teaching staff could be forced to leave before classes end in June. If the controversy remains unsettled into the fall, the school — widely considered one of the best international schools in the world and a key recruiting tool here — could close.

Where do the commies(dems) find all these crossdressers ?

The entire Obama administration is a virtual sewer of corruption deceit and treason!!!!!!!

Another Obama appointee in 2012. They just keep coming......

Good riddance to another dirty DemonRat!

Unfortunately no one is going to be fired or removed or even impeached as this gov't which no longer represents its constituents (we the American people) also does not fear the American people. This gov't not only lacks any semblance of accountability but believes that the American people lack the will to rise up and take this country back! this gov't is inhabited by self serving morons who could care less about anything but their own skin-for the most part (not all of America) yet most of America has become a nation of ignorant cowards who are either too self absorbed and or indifferent to see the sinking ship that is surely sinking into the abyss of socialism-we may have already lost this country and not know it! Even now it is hard to refer to this country as THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! And that's because it is anything but united or democratic-we are becoming a socialist Marxist regime!

Corruption among obozo's hirelings?   Shocking - NOT.    Everywhere this POS steps, he leaves a ton of feces in his wake.

Just demonRATS being demonRATS, that is just who they are.

Again do we do the face palm of shock ? This again is what you get with a liberal administration. The people of the USA have such short memories. Every time you get a liberal in any public office you get corruption.

            Anyone , anywhere , with any connections to the American democratic party are or should be assumed to be corrupt , simply because corruption is what the democratic party embraces , as opposed to any sense of honor , dignity , or decency .

More Crap In The REGIME...

A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but
not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or 
to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might 
live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a 
check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not
to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that 
was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from 
owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty 
F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but
not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make 
you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is
run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a
wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman
in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head 
searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but 
is run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions 
of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his 
teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class 
in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more 
government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with 
Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free
cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses 
but is run by idiots.

If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to 
provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment
checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was 
diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation 
that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest 
big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a 
wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government 
forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself 
makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a 
nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government 'cracks down' on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for 'the safety of its citizens' and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
