Read this first before you see who got the money, if you can!!!!  Especially about the "Foreign Borrowers"!!!

21,000 Transactions

Any new rescues by the U.S. central bank would be governed by transparency laws adopted in 2010 that require the Fed to disclose borrowers after two years.

Fed officials argued for more than two years that releasing the identities of borrowers and the terms of their loans would stigmatize banks, damaging stock prices or leading to depositor runs. A group of the biggest commercial banks last year asked the U.S. Supreme Court to keep at least some Fed borrowings secret. In March, the high court declined to hear that appeal, and the central bank made an unprecedented release of records.

Data gleaned from 29,346 pages of documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act and from other Fed databases of more than 21,000 transactions make clear for the first time how deeply the world’s largest banks depended on the U.S. central bank to stave off cash shortfalls. Even as the firms asserted in news releases or earnings calls that they had ample cash, they drew Fed funding in secret, avoiding the stigma of weakness.

Hi Donna,

I would suggust going with your own instinct and write letters to the editor and write to your state representatives. I know Chas Vincent (Republican) who is running for State Senate 1 is for the idea, and there are others. He has committed, to me anyway, that after the election he will move forward with legislation. His email is cvvincent@hotmail.com his phone is 406-293-1575.

If you send me your email I will keep you up to date. Sent to: perquiaga@EaglesVoice.com. You can also go to www.EaglesVoice.com and fill out my SHORT questionair which will put you on my email list if you check yes to do so.

Thank you Donna,

Illegal Immigration
Again Illegal Immigration is at the forefront of discussion around the country and within many states. This is the result of President Obama and the Leftist (Socialist) Liberals intent to reform immigration by offering amnesty and all citizenship rights to Illegal Immigrants and by the boldly appropriate actions of the State of Arizona to control Illegal Immigration by passing and signing Arizona’s S.B. 1070

(See full test of Arizona’s S.B. 1070 at: http://www.azsos.gov/public_services/Chapter_Laws/2010/49th_Legisla...))

I am asking the people of Montana to join together to pass a Montana bill similar to Arizona’s S.B. 1070. I’m asking the people of Montana to provide your thoughts on Illegal Immigration by filling out a brief questionnaire. Click Here or go to: http://www.eaglesvoice.com/Illegal_Immigration_Questionair.html



As states in the Southwest, and other areas of our country, move foreword to save themselves and their communities from the multitude of negative effects resulting from Illegal Immigration, Illegal Immigrants will look for opportunities to leave those states seeking refuge in states that continue to protect their Illegal status by allowing Illegal Employment (Thereby taking jobs away from honest hard working citizens.), that allow them to receive free social services (Thereby increase the tax burden on the citizens.), that refuse to acknowledge the influx of crime created by Illegal’s (Thereby putting their citizens at risk of becoming victims of crime.), that will encourage the proliferation of illicit narcotic sales and use (Thereby risking the future of our youth and citizens.), that feel there is no risk that disease will be transmitted by illegal’s (Thereby putting our citizens health at risk.), that think that the threat of terrorism only originates in the middle east and won’t happen here, for example in Montana (Thereby opening the door for terrorist cells to propagate and threaten society.), and we can go on and on…

The Honorable Jan Brewer
Governor of Arizona
1700 West Washington
Phoenix, Arizona 85007


Honorable Governor Jan Brewer,

I commend your actions regarding illegal immigration! You have taken bold action that will, if not reversed, help to save the state of Arizona.

I was born in Nevada, spent most of my life in Las Vegas, and then moved to Southern California. This allows me to understand the problems that Arizona faces. These problems are one of the reasons I've moved to Montana. Sadly, these problems exist here also - although on a much smaller scale.

Your actions will help Arizona economically, your actions will help to prevent crime, drug trafficking, the potential spread of disease, the socio/economic burden born by Arizona Citizens to pay (through taxes) the cost of medical care and other social services that illegal’s have no right to.

I hope that Governors Office and Arizona will continue to fight the objections and resistance to your efforts, and encourage the rest of our country to follow your lead. I hope the people of Arizona, that may see temporary economic setbacks as a result of boycotts, will see that in the long term the people will be better off financially. Arizona will be a much stronger state.

I would like a copy of your new law so I can consider submitting similar legislation in Montana.

Thank you,
Phillip Erquiaga

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Clinton Donor And Tax Cheat Tied To Russia

“Do as we say, not as we do.”

That seems to be the slogan for Hillary Clinton and her political allies, and it’s especially apt in light of new information about one of Clinton’s largest campaign donors.

While the left is still trying to attack President Trump and his family over unproven business dealings and largely debunked connections to Russia, a new report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton’s team who were doing those exact things.

“Fox News has learned that one of the top donors to the ‘Hillary Victory Fund’ (HVF) in 2016 was a Los Angeles-based attorney who is alleged to have misused company funds to create his own $22 million real estate portfolio,” that outlet reported on Thursday.

“He has also been considered by California to be one of the state’s biggest tax cheats, and allegedly has ties to the (Russian) Kremlin,” Fox continued.

The man’s name is Edgar Sargsyan. His deep pockets greatly benefited Clinton’s campaign, with contributions of at least $250,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund in 2016.

He was also in charge of an elite fundraising dinner to benefit Clinton, where donors paid $100,000 per couple just to attend the ritzy event. But in true Clinton fashion, the money apparently went missing.

Sargsyan is now “being sued by his former company for allegedly diverting those funds to start his own real estate company,” according to Fox.

Now, people are asking hard questions about Clinton’s buddy Sargsyan, including whether his contributions were part of a pay-to-play scheme and if he had shady connections to foreign governments.

“Nobody gave to the Hillary Victory Fund out of the goodness of their heart or some generalized desire to help 33 random state parties,” pointed out attorney Dan Backer from the Committee to Defend the President.

“They did so to buy access and curry influence — something the Clintons have been selling for nearly three decades in and out of government,” he continued.

Trying to buy political influence is sadly common, especially when it comes to the Clintons. What is raising more red flags than normal, however, is the evidence that Sargsyan is no run-of-the-mill campaign donor.

“The really scary question is, what did this particular donor with this strange web of connections hope to buy for his quarter-million dollars?” Backer asked Fox News.

That web of connections is strange indeed.

The Committee to Defend the President is now alleging that SBK, a major Sargsyan-linked company “is an investment firm that is affiliated with United Arab Emirates president, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and its international affiliate has business interests in Russia,” according to Fox.

“Among its dealings was a bid to finance $850 million for a major bridge project to connect Crimea with Russia,” the group claims.

“He worked for SBK, and SBK appears to have bid on some Crimean/Russian bridge project,” Backer said. “That’s usually an indicator of political favor and connections.”

It raises several chilling questions: Was Sargsyan paying a quarter million dollars to Clinton for political favors, and — more disturbingly — was that money actually from sources in Russia in order to smooth the way for its construction plans?

Nobody knows for sure. What is clear, however, is that there is a pattern of dirty money surrounding the Clintons, with the “Uranium One” and “Clinton Foundation” scandals just two of the most well-known examples.

“It reinforces how fast and loose the Clinton machine was when it came to ‘Hoovering up’ these megadonor checks, not just from questionable Hollywood and Wall Street elites but potentially from foreign influence peddlers using who knows what money,” Backer told Fox News.

“It reinforces the need to take a long hard look at not just the unlawful money laundering process, but the way in which they were solicited as well,” he continued. “The Clintons have never shown a great deal of concern for whomever it was cutting the checks — whether it’s foreign influence peddlers or Hollywood smut peddlers like Harvey Weinstein.”

If those claims are even partially true, then America dodged a bullet in November of 2016 — and it’s worth keeping the pile of foreign-connected Clinton scandals in mind the next time the left tries desperately to tie Donald Trump to Russia. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
