All In The Family

The US government has entered into a contract with a real estate firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided it no longer needs these buildings, many of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country.

The sale of these properties will fetch billions of dollars to the company handling the sales. That company belongs to a man named Richard Blum. Who is Richard Blum? He's the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein. What's wrong with this picture?
Senator Feinstein and her husband stand to make a fortune. His firm, CRI is the sole real estate company offering these properties for sale.  CRI will be making a 6% commission on the sale of each and every one of these postal properties.
All of these properties being sold are all paid for. They were purchased with U.S. taxpayers’ dollars, and they are allowed free and clear by the U.S.P.S.  The only cost to keep them is the cost to actually keep the doors open and the heat and lights on.

The United States Postal Service doesn’t even have to pay property taxes on these properties. Would you sell your house just because you couldn’t afford to pay the electric bill?
Well, the Post Office is.
How does a U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with such a sweet deal? A United States Senator’s husband is standing by ready to make millions from a U.S. taxpayer funded enterprise.
No one in the mainstream media is even raising an eyebrow over his 6% commission on the sale of hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of quasi-public assets.

Isn’t this what small government tea party people want? Cut back on government jobs, maintaining derelict buildings, and having private business profit from government. Where were these people and outrage when Cheney was/is profiting from the no-bid contracts with Halliburton? (Oh right, that was alright because he had a (R) after his name.) If you actually read the snopes article (I know that is a stretch for people hitting the forward button,) it talks about how Richard Plum is CBRE’s Chairman of the Board, not the president, nor can it be his company since it is a public company. All of that aside, Feinstein actually voted to halt the post office closings but that was defeated by the republican house. But let’s not split hairs over who did what, as obviously the democrats in California are single-handily destroying the other 49 states.

Wow! How expensive are these building?!? If 56 buildings will generate real estate commissions of BILLIONS of dollars...

If my math is correct, in order for Richard Blum to clear 2B each of the 56 properties will have to sell for an average of over 607 MILLION! Pretty expensive buildings...

Of course, this is assuming that the rest of the BS story is legit.

Why do they link to Snopes when it always kicks the legs out from under their bullshit narrative?

They gonna call this Blum-ghazi now?

Oh let's just pull any old b.s. outta our azzes and push it at the rubes as long as we include one or more of the hot button names: Obama (the bestest one), Benghazi!!!111!!! (currently trending at number two), Pelosi (a periannal hate fave), DiFi (second only to hated Pelosi), IRS (currently trending...), etc.

Clearly facts are utterly irrelevent. Just chuck in some spurious money numbers; hostilely accuse someone much be-hated by the nutso rightwing; and Bingo! We gotta winnah here, Ladies & Germs.

For that extra soupcon of entertainment value, link directly to a Snopes (or similar) article that completely debunks the b.s. lies in the RWF, itself, but pretend that it actually supports the lies you're peddling to the TeaTardz, who'll lap it up like mother's milk (but not bother to, you know, actually read the clearly debunking snopes article, but hey: snopes is LIEbrul anyway).
