Rival: Rep. Jackson ‘cheated’ voters
by not revealing plea deal talks

Chicago Sun-Times, by Natasha Korecki and Becky Schlikerman

Original Article

Posted By:mambo 5, 11/9/2012 7:11:42 AM

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. “cheated” the voters. But, knowing as much as they did, those who re-elected the MIA congressman are “crazy, mindless voters who are taking orders from downtown.” Those were some of the reactions from Jackson’s just vanquished rivals as they took in the surprise news that the freshly re-elected South Shore Democrat is in plea negotiations for alleged misuse of his campaign funds.

Comments:
Surprise! He couldn't mention this on the campaign trail why? Because he didn't campaign! Hey, any district that re-elects a candidate who doesn't campaign deserves to have bad representation.

Cheated? The way of Chicago, and the Democratic way. Cheating is just one way for a resume enhancement for them. They have so many other ways also.

He would have won anyhow. He is after all of the correct political party and skin tone. The ONLY two requirements for that district. Racist? perhaps, but show me where I'm wrong.

Jackson could be up on murder charges and still get re-elected. Does this person really believe that his plea deal is a big deal?

He's going to weasel out of using campaign funds to redecorate his house,a clear violation of the law.The problem is all his cohorts do the same thing.

His illness is nothing more than a way to plead temporary insanity for all the bad things he has done. It will work.

Blacks were granted voting rights after being discriminated against for so long, and they squander that precious right by voting for scum.
Alcee Hastings was a federal judge charged with soliciting bribes from drug dealers in his court, was acquitted by an OJ jury, was impeached and removed by the congress. And he ran for congress, won, and continues to be reelected.
There are too many bad, lousy, corrupt blacks in congress to list them all.

,,,but let us not forget MLK,Jr famous words..."to be judged by the content of character and not skin color" These words are noble but in the black culture, they are meaningless..... skin color trumps everything! When about 17% of the population accounts for about 85% of all crimes....there is no character there; when black churches support gay marriage and expressly tell their congregants to vote for Obama in spite of all of his failed policies plus his "anything goes mantra to give everyone a fair shot"...there is no character.

Democrats wouldn't care at all if one of their own was a crook; it is the big D Democrat label that counts. Many elites knew JJ was under investigation, but did the media question why he was hiding in Mayo Clinic pretending he was mentally ill. Please, give me a break.

JJ will get a slap on the wrist, if he gets any chastisement at all.

Chicago picked as site for
Obama´s manufacturing initiative
Chicago Tribune, by Melissa Harris and Christi Parsons    Original Article

Chicago will be the site of a digital manufacturing institute backed by $70 million in federal money and another $250 million in private and other government funding, giving the city, once a factory town, a better chance to re-establish its credentials as a modern maker of things. The decision, to be announced officially Tuesday by President Barack Obama, was hotly anticipated by city and state officials who recognized the opportunity to jump-start high-tech manufacturing as a core component of Chicago’s economic vision.

Obama says odds of final Iran
deal not ´more than 50-50´

President Obama said Saturday that he believed that the chances of a final, comprehensive nuclear agreement being struck with Iran are less than 50-50. However, Obama defended the interim deal struck between the U.S., Iran, and five other world powers last month in Geneva, saying that diplomacy had to be tested as a solution to the crisis and was the best way to prevent Tehran from acquiring automatic weapons. "If you ask me what is the likelihood that we´re able to arrive at the end state ... I wouldn´t say that it´s more than 50-50," Obama said. "But we have to try."

How affordable is the Affordable Care Act? Not very, it would seem for Washington state resident Jessica Sanford. The self-employed single mother was cited last month as an ObamaCare success story by President Obama in the Rose Garden. But according to Washington State Wire, she´s now finding out she doesn´t qualify for the tax credits she was originally told she´d get. Sanford, who told the news site she hasn´t had health insurance in 15 years, initially said she was excited by the prospect of purchasing a policy for her and her son under ObamaCare. Before ObamaCare, Sanford was getting health insurance rate

France and Mexico have angrily demanded prompt explanations from Washington following fresh, "shocking" spying allegations leaked by former US security contractor Edward Snowden. The reports in French daily Le Monde and German weekly Der Spiegel revealed that the National Security Agency secretly recorded tens of millions of phone calls in France and hacked into former Mexican President Felipe Calderon´s email account. French Interior Minister Manuel Valls described the revelations in Le Monde newspaper as "shocking", in an interview Monday with Europe 1 radio.

ObamaCare to shift costs of some prisoner
health coverage from states to feds

ObamaCare may have its skeptics, but one group is decidedly optimistic -- prison inmates. "At least 50 percent of the [prison] population has symptoms of mental health disorders," said Brad Brockmann, executive director of the Center for Prisoner Health and Human Rights at Brown University. "With Medicaid expansion, we have an incredible opportunity to take care of the very neediest, the very poorest while freeing up huge amounts of money within the states through not having to provide that care in correctional settings."

   

 



 
Gov. actuaries say ObamaCare
will increase health care spending by $621 billion
over next 10 years
FoxNews, by Jim Angle    Original Article
Posted By: mambo 5- 10/9/2013 4:20:42 AM     Post Reply
President Obama has made many promises about his signature health care plan, but one of the simplest was an assurance that it would lower national health care spending and save every family thousands of dollars. For example, in May 2009 he hailed "comprehensive health care reform -- so that we can do what I pledged to do as a candidate and save a typical family an average of $2,500 on their health care costs in the coming years." But now government actuaries have reached a different conclusion, finding that ObamaCare will actually increase health care spending by $621 billion over the next

Feds indict Obama friend Eric
Whitaker’s former chief of staff
Sun-Times [Chicago, IL], by Chris Fusco & Dave Mc Kinney    Original Article

A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted Quinshaunta R. Golden — a onetime top aide to Dr. Eric E. Whitaker, one of President Barack Obama’s closest friends — on bribery, theft and fraud charges, accusing her of embezzling about $433,000 in state health department funds. The money from the kickback scheme began flowing to Golden in July 2007, when Whitaker headed the Illinois Department of Public Health, and Golden was his chief of staff, the indictment alleges. It allegedly kept flowing until October 2008, by which time Golden and Whitaker had left state government

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
