Raleigh’s Rich Russians Arrested, Charged with Multiple Crimes

This was hot news in North Carolina last month, but I suspect it never made it to cable news fixated every day, all day, on Donald Trump!

Here is the headline of a Department of Justice press release in December.

Five Foreign Nationals Indicted on Murder-For-Hire, Money Laundering, and Immigration Charges

The story of the Russian nationals, led by Leonid Teyf57, who lived in a mansion estimated to be worth $4 million in a posh section of Raleigh reads like a made-for-TV movie.

Russian mobsters lived here!

 

As the DOJ’s press release tells us, the Russians got rich by ripping off the Russian military. Teyf was a contractor hired to supply goods and services to the Russian military, but had devised a kickback scheme that netted him over $150 million over a two year period.

The DOJ alleges that he, and his fellow Russians in the US, set up various businesses through which they laundered what amounts to Putin’s money.

The gang, including Teyf’s wife Tatyana, 41, are also charged with immigration fraud as they tried to get another of their Russian pals in to the US.

 

Murder-for-hire plot!

But, the story got even juicier when Teyf allegedly believed his wife was having an affair with his housekeeper’s son (remember made-for-TV potential here!).

Local news reports were buzzing about that tidbit.  According to the DOJ,

During the course of the investigation into the money laundering charges, a Confidential Source utilized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation learned that Leonid Teyf came to believe that his wife, Tatyana Teyf, was having an affair with another man.  Leonid Teyf recruited the Confidential Source to assist in planning for the man’s murder.  The murder was to take place here in the United States or in Russia after they conspired to have the man deported.

If found guilty, Leonid Teyf could get 20 years and Tatyana and their other accomplices could get 10 each.

The feds will seek to recover $39 million and then here is the clincher for them,  “Each defendant will likely face the prospect of removal from the United States after their terms of imprisonment.”

Why not just deport them after they are convicted and save us the expense of keeping them behind bars?

Let Putin take care of them!
question markOf course the first question that came to my mind when I read the news, widely reported in North Carolina, was: how did this bunch of Russian mobsters get in here in the first place?  We hear mumbo-jumbo all the time about coming to America the right way? What is that? If they hadn’t made some dumb mistakes, would these mobsters just have wormed their way to US citizenship?

Fake News Field Day in Story about Texas Shooting

Sometimes our criminals at Fraud, Crooks and Criminals will be Americans like the man who allegedly killed little Jazmine Barnes in a drive-by shooting ten days ago.

barnes case white guy
This is the man the New York Times and CNN were already lynching!

The black child was killed by a black thug, but the New York Times, CNN and all the rest had already lynched a “white man with blue eyes” whose likeness had been sent out around the world after other children in the car where Jazmine died told authorities this is what the shooter looked like.

I’ve told some of you previously that I watch CNN the first thing in the morning so that I can get a feel for where they are steering the Leftwing segment of America on any given day.

Oh boy, here they go I thought when that drawing went out and the race hucksters headed to Houston.

CNN actually led one segment of their morning news with the shooting “hate crime” story, even before they launched in to their daily hate fest against the President.

Eric Black Jr arrested in killing of black child

That was until two days ago when, oopsy! turns out the man arrested in the case looks like this.

A second black man has been arrested.

And, guess what! No updates during my early a.m. review of CNN today.

But it wasn’t just CNN, the New York Times had gone on a ‘it has to be a hate crime’ frenzy.

Here is just one segment of a New York Times story (before the arrest of the black thug):

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office believes the gunman fired at random into the car in which Jazmine was riding with her mother and three sisters, a 6-year-old and two teenagers. A bullet struck Jazmine in the head, her mother said.

The police said Wednesday that they still had not identified the gunman. But the case has drawn the attention of national civil rights activists and fueled speculation that the shooting was racially motivated. The gunman is white, the police said, and Jazmine was black.  [Note how the reporter phrases that, I doubt the police said the gunman is white!—ed]

[….]

In another effort to garner the public’s help, Mr. Merritt [family attorney] and Shaun King, a prominent racial justice activist and a columnist at The Intercept, have offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to the gunman’s arrest.

Maybe the New York Times has apologized, but I don’t see it.

Even in a story where the NYT has to admit the truth, they keep ginning up the “hate crime” meme by quoting Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, here:

“Do not be afraid to call this what it seems to be — a hate crime,” Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, a Houston Democrat, told hundreds of people at a rally last week near the site of the killing.

Now, this is the story they are pushing widely. It is about how the poor family got confused.

Meanwhile, speaking of poor families, the family of the white man who may have witnessed the shooting is getting bullied and threatened.  This is from local ABC news:

Family of man wrongfully accused by activist Shaun King in Jazmine Barnes’ shooting speaks out

Will the NYT and CNN follow-up and report that news?  I’m not holding my breath!

Maybe the “white man with blue eyes” should sue the whole bunch of them!

I haven’t done this story (“Justice for Jazmine”) justice. Some feature writer should go through the media coverage of the case and expose in exquisite detail how the frauds in the Leftwing media spin the news.

You know they couldn’t wait to blame this on Donald Trump’s America!

New category at Frauds and Crooks: Media fraud!

question markWould someone keep an eye on this case and see if major media outlets ever mention it again after this week?

 

California: Thousands of Mourners See Police Officer Ronil Singh Laid to Rest

This is one of the better stories I’ve read on the funeral for a man, an immigrant who gave everything for America, who should be alive today.  Instead some Mexican low-life who allegedly entered the US illegally is still breathing.

 

singh funeral 2
Singh’s dog Sam says good-bye

 

From the Modesto Bee (emphasis is mine):

CrossPoint Community Church overflowed with mourners. The main Worship Hall was standing-room only, reserved for uniformed law enforcement and family members.

Three additional viewing areas inside the church for the general public also were packed and in Newman a livestream viewing was held at Orestimba High School.

[….]

The funeral for the 33-year-old Singh, who was shot and killed while performing a traffic stop in the early hours of Dec. 26, drew some 4,000 people and officers from more than 100 agencies up-and-down the state, as far away as New York and Massachusetts and even two members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

[….]

The family immigrated to the United States in 2003, and he worked his way up working various positions at local law enforcement agencies including the Modesto Police and Turlock Police departments and the Merced County Sheriff’s Department. Then in 2011 he achieved his dream of becoming a police officer when he was hired by the Newman Police Department. He was promoted to become a K9 officer in 2013 and the rank of corporal in 2016.

[….]

Aside from the speakers’ voices, the quiet hall was interrupted only by laughter at Singh’s jokester antics and the occasional burbling sounds of Singh’s five-month-old son, Arnav, who sat in the front row held by with his widow, Anamika Chand-Singh.

[….]

About 2,000 law enforcement representatives took part. Modesto Police Department spokesman Billy Boyle said he had never seen as large a combined police and public turnout as at the funeral service, and that it spoke to the close relationship local law enforcement has with the community.

 

And, it spoke to the public’s universal outrage at the monstrous unfairness of it —that an illegal alien creep who shouldn’t have been in the country in the first place allegedly took Singh’s life.

Donate to the family through the police department

There is no official GoFundMe account for the family.  The Stanislaus County PD makes it clear on their facebook page that there is only one legitimate fundraising effort on-going for the family.

Please be aware there are NO other approved or authorized memorial fund or online fundraising accounts that will be established.

Click here to see how you can donate.

 

question markMichelle Malkin wants to know why the Democrats are silent, especially California Democrat women!  And, it seems to me that the Rs should be talking about Corporal Ronil Singh every day as the wall debate continues.  Indeed his death could save thousands in the future if the US finally controls the southern border!

Somali Crime From Maine to Minnesota

Editor:  Oops! Had a typo in my original title!

Remember the story from last summer where roving gangs of Somali ‘youths’ got into a “brawl” with locals in the city park in Lewiston, Maine.  I wrote about it here. A local Maine man died after being hit by a brick.

Breitbart also reported the news, but the story was written before Donald Giusti  died from his injuries.

Brawl-Somalis-locals-maine-screenshot-640x480
Breitbart published this screenshot from a video taken the night of the June attack that resulted in Giusti’s murder.

 

Last week, locals returned to the park for a vigil for Giusti, and the Bangor Daily News headline says,

Lewiston vigil turns violent

It is really an incredible story as it explains that Giusti’s friends and family were attacked again by a “group” who drove up and got out with “bats and stuff” and began hitting the attendees.

One man was taken to the hospital, but not one word about who the people in the “group” were!  Police say they are investigating.

Oh, and by the way, they have never been able to make any arrests or solve the mystery of who killed Giusti even as there is video available of the June fight with the group of Somali ‘youths.’

This latest “brawl” happened on December 27th and I am not seeing any other stories, so if you do, send me a link! I’m curious to see if the ‘S’ word is mentioned.

Minnesota

On Tuesday, Alpha News trumpeted this headline,

Large Violent Crime Increase in Minneapolis Cedar-Riverside Neighborhood

 

Star Tribune reports that largely driven by a surge in robberies, and assaults the Minneapolis Cedar-Riverside neighborhood has seen over 60% increase in violent crime in 2018.

This increase in crime comes at a time when Minneapolis is having trouble recruiting police officers.

Authorities put the blame on a violent rivalry between St. Paul and Minneapolis East African gangs.

[….]

The rise of Somali gangs is not new to Minnesota. In 2009 CBS reported that somewhere between 400-500 Somali youth were active in gangs.

Some of the active gangs include Somali Hot Boyz, the Somali Mafia and Madhibaan with Attitude.

question mark
Note that the media never makes any mention of how the Somalis were seeded in Maine and Minnesota through the US Refugee Admissions Program. Your average American, reading these stories, must wonder why and how so many Somalis got to America in the first place! Why is that? Is it that the media is loathe to put the word “refugee” in a story about violent crime?
