I was just handed this information and it checked. If this isn't a conflict of interest, I don't know what is. And if it isn't, it is still unethical. But, we're talking about the Washington elite, so I guess anything goes.
"If nothing else has pissed you off about this administration, this might get to you.
The US 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, most of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country. The sale of these properties will fetch about $19 billion. A regular real estate commission will be paid to the company that was given the exclusive listing for handling the sales.
That company is CRI and it belongs to a man named Richard Blum. Richard Blum is the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein. (Most voters and many of the government people who approved the deal have not made the connection between the two because they have different last names).
Senator Feinstein and her husband stand to make a fortune (est at between $950 million and $1.1 billion!!) from these transactions. His company is the sole real estate on the sale. CRI will be making a minimum of 3% and as much as 6% commission on each and every sale. All of the properties that are being sold are all fully paid for. They were purchased with U.S. taxpayers dollars.
The U.S.P.S. is allowed free and clear, tax exempt use. The only cost to keep them open 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 county property taxes on these subject properties.
Would you put your house in foreclosure just because you couldn't afford to pay the electric bill? Well, the folks in Washington have given the Post Office the OK to do it! Worse yet, most of the net proceeds of the sales will go back to the U.S.P.S, an organization that is so poorly managed that they have lost $117 billion dollars in the past 10 years!
No one in the mainstream media is even raising an eyebrow over the conflict of interest and on the possibility of corruption on the sale of billions of dollars worth of public assets. How does a U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with organizing and lobbying such a sweet deal? Has our government become so elitist that they have no fear of oversight? And it's no mere coincidence that these two public service crooks have different last names; a feeble attempt at avoiding transparency in these type of transactions."


  1. This will lead to people going 50-100 miles to deliver their mail to a Post Office, or have it sit in your mail box for which some can be accessed by anyone walking by, and the mail delivery by their workers could stop thus you will have to go PU your mail 50-100 miles away.
    This will also lead to EVERYONE getting online to transfer mail items and pay bills.
    There may NOT be an EMP disaster on November 13-14 as it is NOT time for the Grid to go down as less than 20% may be using the internet now to pay bills as well as it could effect mail delivery as the USPS does use Electricity to run their scanners to move the mail expediently.
    Maybe it would be time to go back to looking at the film 'Miracle on 34th Street' (1947) when you can see the Post Office Mail Sorter, played by Jack Albertson, sorting the mail manually and NOT by scanners, thus we would need a lot more lower paid workers to keep the mail moving!

  2. They wouldn't do this would they?

  3. Probably another backroom deal. No doubt it was all worked out in advance. Someone in her home state should start a movement to have her recalled.
