Gun-Banning CA Senator Busted For Weapons Trafficking

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Filed under 'most ironic story of the day', California Senator Leland Yee, who authored gun control legislation, has been busted by the FBI for conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms. As AP reports, Yee is also accused of accepting tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions and cash payments to provide introductions, help a client get a contract and influence legislation. House of Cards much?

 

Via LA Times,

Federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment against state Sen. Leland Yee in court Wednesday, accusing him of conspiring to commit wire fraud and traffic firearms.

 

In all, 26 people, including former school board president Keith Jackson, were indicted on charges related to an extensive crime ring headed by well-known Chinatown figure Raymond Chow, who was also arrested and charged Wednesday.

 

The indictment alleges Yee and Jackson defrauded "citizens of honest services" and were involved in a scheme to traffic firearms in exchange for thousands in campaign donations to the senator.

 

Federal prosecutors also allege Yee agreed to perform official acts in exchange for the money, including one instance in which he introduced a businessman to state legislators who had significant influence over pending medical marijuana legislation. In exchange, the businessman -- who was actually an undercover FBI agent -- agreed to donate thousands to Yee's campaign fund, according to the indictment.

 

...

and the Gun-Control-legislating Senator explained in the sting...

Yee discussed helping the agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired missiles, and explaining the entire process of acquiring them from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines to bringing them to the U.S., according to the court document by FBI agent Emmanuel V. Pascua.

 

Yee said he was unhappy with his life and told the agent he wanted to hide out in the Philippines, according to the affidavit.

 

"There's a part of me that wants to be like you," he told the undercover agent, according to the affidavit. "You know how I'm going to be like you? Just be a free agent there."

his character was re-elected after some of these allegations came to light... we assume as long as American Idol is on and the EBT cards still work, voting for the status quo is all that matters... but when do 'the people' of America go "Venezuelan" or "Ukrainian" or 'postal'

Gun grabbing elitiests only want to ban US from having them... while they and their body guards stay well armed.  Is really is an 'us versus them' type of gun-grabbing, typical of tyrants of the recent and ancient past.

From the good Doctor's website:

After serving four years in the California State Assembly, Leland Yee was elected to the State Senate in November 2006 with the largest winning percentage for any Democratic candidate.  In 2010, Senator Yee was re-elected, receiving the most votes of any Democratic legislator in the State.  Representing District 8, which includes San Francisco and San Mateo County, Yee is the first Chinese American ever elected to the California State Senate.

Just in case anybody was wondering whether he was a Democrat. Of course he is, you can tell by the fact the reports don;'t mention aprty affiliation. Had he been a Repub, that would have been in the headline. BTW the doctorate's in Child Psychology.

With great authority comes great responsibility. Penalties should be tripled for any elected official who breaks the law. (They're only doubled for speeding in a work zone) Then let's see who runs for office.

Breaking the law makes triple penalties on people who are responsible for making the law.  Don't think that is going to work out how you are hoping.

Heck, I'd be satisfied if law was applied in the same way as us serfs.  How many congressional exclusions are there these days?

It's a better than even money bet that the most strident Anti-whatever is balls deep in the whatever.

Vocally Anti Gun? Has several at home, likely illegal, or is running guns.

Anti Child Porn Crusader? Several thousand nudes of small boys, many discrete trips to Thailand, and an odd smell wafting from the crawl space...

Happens so often that were I a cop or FBI I'd IMMEDIATELY start probing any social crusader; there seems to be a basic brain mechanism be it guilt or brazen ploy to cover up their evil that drives the criminals to advocate against whatever activity they are engaged in.

But wait, there's more!

Keith Jackson, cited below, has some heavy duty esplanin' to do too. He once held a job for four days, tracking down deadbeat dad, while being behind in his own child support payments. I guess he understood the psychological make-up of those he was hunting down. Jackson is being charged with murder for hire in this case.

 

In all, 26 people, including former school board president Keith Jackson, were indicted on charges related to an extensive crime ring headed by well-known Chinatown figure Raymond Chow, who was also arrested and charged Wednesday.

Excellent and important article, however I feel there is no irony here at all. This is typical behavior from a lawbreaking criminal.
Also, recall the Obama/Holder attempt to run guns into Mexico so as to impugn the second amendment.

Always, always, always, those who "warn" you about the dangers of any criminal behavior are doing so because they are experts of that criminal behavior...

 

My god, this is one of those humanistic behavioral truths that is as old as time...

LOP, this can be applied to so many things besides criminal activity as well. "Experts" warning about fats and promoting a high grain diet. Warning about depression and promoting pills that cause increases in suicides and violent behavior. Warning women they'll die of breast cancer without a mammogram. I have come to the conclusion EVERY proclamation is just an excuse for either an increase in income stream or a squelching of competition. We see it as hypocrisy, they see just a way of life on the chess board.

Crusaders tend to rail against their own projections of themselves. There are plenty of examples, such as the former chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children.

Actually, he is not hypocritical in the least. Just a businessman trying to work the angles. First you ban the guns. This results in a shortage of cheap weaponry for criminals to have access to. Now you are free to import them illegally and command a much higher price for your goods. Dupont did it when they had congress ban freon R-12 (over the supposed ozone hole bullshit) only to have it replaced with the only legal substitute at 4 times the price, specifically R-134A. How convenient that R-12 no longer had patent protections at this time and could be cheaply manufactured royalty free by anyone and just as convenient, it's replacement R-134A was recently patented by the very company that supported the banning of R-12 in the first place, namely Dupont. It's all about the money, people.

True, the real problem lies with people who either do not have the knowledge or don't care to deal with the problem when they do. I remember the freon ban and I was for it for the public reasons stated. Then, years later, I found out I was duped and there was nothing I could do about it. Same thing with incandescent light bulbs. It goes on an on. Until enough people are willing push back and not be forever distracted will things ever change. Comfort lulls one into dangerous tranquility.

again "we have hanging judges in America." lawlessness and anarchy does not go over too well in Ye olde USA.

forget "special prosecutors." you could see special tribunals to see if any of these matters are linked up to issues related to domestic terrorism and what Lincoln called "an insurrection."

this stuff is really "out there." it's really hard to believe it's even real it's so out there.

The entire legal industry is cartelized.  In fact it was among the first industries to be cartelized in the Progressive Era.

They are fed from the hands of the Yee's of the nation.

The most you could expect from them is a slap on the wrist, and more likely an Orwellian promotion of the injustice of accusing such an eminent figure.

To get a genuine verdict you'd have to compose a court entirely from outside the Cartel.
