New farmer, Calypso Louie Farrakhan, of the so-called “Nation of Islam” and his friends, and other friends of Barrie, have been scooping up more than $6 million in cold cash since 2008 to 2011 for…ta, da! farm subsidies!
They did all this while residing in the Kenyan kommie’s home base of Chicago. Fancy that!
The report, titled “Farm Subsidies and the Big Dogs,” is based on data released by the US Department of Agriculture & information obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. The report examines total farm subsidies that have been paid into selected cities and urban areas.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, federal farm subsidies are being poured into several non-farming metropolitan areas, including New York City and Chicago, according to the report.
A total of 930 entities in the Chicago area received farm subsidies between 2008 and 2011.
And as for the Louis Farrakhan group: Three Years Economic Savings, Inc., which is listed at his home address, received approximately $103,529 between 2008 and 2011, making it the 12th highest farm subsidy recipient in the Chicago area.
