This came in this morning on my e-mail, Ever wonder why we have not heard anymore about Mrs. Shirley Sherrod with regards to the story that Andrew Breitbart uncovered earlier this summer and the uproar over racism and the questions as to why the White House was involved with her termination, its because the White House knew of other events and were trying to hard to stop them, Mrs. Sherrod failed to immediately see what was about to happen as she pleaded her case on the major news networks.
Breitbart recent handing of the ACCORN affair is nothing compared to his brilliant manipulation of the Shirley Sherrod ‘white farmer’ scandal. It was to allow him to trick the media into exposing one of the most shocking examples of corruption in the federal government – a little known legal case called “Pigford v. Glickman”.
“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.”
The case was entitled “Pigford v. 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.
Then on February 23 of this year, 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 86,000 black farmers throughout America.
There was only one problem. The United States of America doesn’t have 86,000 black farmers. According to accurate and totally verified census data, the total number of black farmers throughout America is only 39,697. How on earth did 39,697 explode into 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.
It appears that Ms. Sherrod had just unwittingly exposed herself as the perpetrator of one
of the biggest fraud claims in the United States – a fraud enabled solely because she screamed racism
at the government and cowed them into submission. Now it gets even more interesting.
Ms. Sherrod has also exposed the person who aided and abetted her in this race fraud. As it turns out, the original judgment of “Pigford v. Glickman” in 1999 only applied to a total of 16,000 black farmers.
But in 2008, a junior Senator got a law passed to reopen the case and allow more black farmers to sue
for funds. T he Senator was no other than Barack 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 depression to pay out more than $1.25 billion to settle a race claim.
But Breitbart knew and on July 22, 2010, he cleverly laid a trap which Sherrod – and the President
-stumbled headfirst into which has now resulted in the entire world discovering the existence of this
corrupt financial judgment. Yes, folks – Breitbart is a genius and begs to question, why isn’t this being addressed on the major news networks or by our elected officials demanding an investigation,
As for Ms. Sherrod? Well, she’s discovered 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 her
corruption. Sherrod has vanished from public view. Her ‘pigs’, it seems, have come home to roost.
