Frontpage Mag ^ | 04-30-2013 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 04/30/2013 11:49:32 AM PDT by Kevin in California

That famous golden spike takes on a whole new meaning with the nearly 1 billion dollar rail to nowhere contract that clocks in at a truly golden 35 million dollars per mile. And its recipient, Mr. Diane Feinstein owner of Tutor Perini, just happens to sit in a warm position near the top of the state’s political heap

Pelosi’s husband is jealous. His contract wasn’t as lucrative.

Statement: "Senator Feinstein’s Husband Wins $35 Mil Per Mile Rail Contract from California"

Response: He also makes billions from Communist China. These people are among those that govern America, fatten their purses at taxpayer expense, bring in millions of aliens at our expense and instead of jail face adulation.

Comment: Then there are some that post about current morality seeming to be the reverse inverse from ours. Their morality is upside down.

These two just can’t leach enough from the California taxpayers! This is Why DiFi wants to stay in office, where else can she and her husband get access to this kind of money?

No wonder they went back on their legislation to ban insider trading. And once again the media was silent, outside of that evil FOX.

There is no HONEST way our politicians could amass such wealth on the few hundred thousands we pay them.

Washington DC and the State of California are becoming horrifically corrupt. We are becoming a banana republic on our way to fascist totalitarian tyranny.

Feinswine might as well be the Queen of California, for all the power we have to run her out of town on a rail. She is almost all-powerful. We serfs have to learn our place grovelling at her feet while she cries, “let them eat cake”.

She never was decent. She just seemed so. Back when she was mayor of SF, the city let tow contracts with the requirement that the tow company base out of a specific parking structure. A tow company owner that I spoke to, declined to bid because of the condition of that structure.

Guess who owned that parking structure?

Aren’t DiFi and her husband already millionaires many times over?

I thought Obama said, “At some point, you’ve made enough money.”

Hypocrites, liars, and thieves.

California is a community property state. Fineswine owns half of every penny he makes. Fineswine also made a lot of money by steering Iraq war contracts to her husband. Most people in California think that she is the “nice” senator and Boxer is the shrew. I can’t decide which one I despise more.

DiFi was never decent, she was always an opportunist looking to line her purse, and keep her husband in business. Always pulled shady deals, from back in her city supervisor days having proxies do property deals.

There was a report recently that the Rail Authority changed the bidding process from one in which the technical quality and expertise behind each proposal would be considered along with the amount of the bid to one in which just the amount of the bid would be considered. Now, if it is true that the Rail Authority changed the basis upon which it would evaluate bids, I wonder if political pressure from DiFi had anything to do with it?

Well you don’t expect them to pay her directly. Just because he has become a Billionaire since she got to the Senate is no reason to suspect corruption.

Bet it is the same person who has the contract on keeping the VA hospitals looking like its still the 40’s.

Diane Feinstein, AKA ‘Venal Tyrant’. When she’s not trying to destroy the 2nd Amendment she bellies up to the trough. I have more respect for a pole dancing stripper. (’Treasure Chest.’)

“And the people of the Central Valley where the first section runs don’t want it.”

That’s not true. Originally the alignment for the HSR was supposed to follow Interstate 5 along the western edge of the San Joaquin Valley and then the various Valley constituencies started bitching that they were being left out. So HSR got realigned to include the cities along State Route 99 and that act has dramatically increased the cost and increased the travel time between San Francisco and LA.

If these people REALLY don’t want it then they need to say something NOW because it’s still not too late to let the French build the thing *at their cost* along the originally planned route.

“These two just can’t leach enough from the California taxpayers!”

Tricky Dicky Blum (AKA Mr. Fineswine) through one of “his other firms” CB Richard Ellis, has an exclusive RE deal to sell off “surplus” post office owned buildings. 6% of hundereds of millions of dollars in “surplus property.” I just wished that DiFi had been in Mayor Moscone’s office when Dan White paid his infamous “visit.”

You mean “our” Diane Goldman, Berman Fineswine was once decent? Surely you jest.

Well, it’s a good thing for him his wife’s a DEMOCRAT governmental leader and not a member of the GOP. Otherwise he’d be eligible for investigation, and probably be convicted of insider trading, fraud, just to start.

Oh, I'm sure it's just coincidence that DiFi's husband landed that contract. /s
