The fall of Jesse Jr.
Chicago Tribune, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/23/2012 6:20:08 AM

Barely two weeks ago, voters awarded U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. another term, despite serious doubts about whether he´d be able to serve. They didn´t have to wait long for an answer. On Wednesday, Jackson saluted that "unwavering support" in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner announcing his resignation from Congress. Though Jackson said he was stepping down "in order to focus on restoring my health," it´s clear the decision was freighted by both medical and legal concerns. Absent since June, he´s being treated for bipolar disorder. His letter reveals that doctors at the Mayo Clinic had advised against his attempts

His district will vote him in again in two years as a write in, if necessary.

Am I the only one who finds it hard to believe that his physicians would tell a person with depression/bipolar disorder to quit his job?
Usually, the opposite is the case. Woring helps to focus one´s mind and establish priorities. If he chose to use campaign funds to buy his (white) girlfriend a $40,000 Rolex while he was working, what will he do, sitting at home, unemployed?
(He took two different degrees in divinity/theology, but was never ordained. And he took a law degree but never took the bar exam.)

Democrats are stupid. They truly are. They probably weren´t even aware that he was stealing from them. Chicago is a gangster city. I would not even travel through the city, let alone live there. Nothing but hanger on people with no ambition and little respect for themselves.

Charlie Rangel was also re elected.

And do remember Maroin Barry.

And do take a gander at the CBC members.

Not a shred of intelligence between them.

Gerrymandered voting districts have given us a window into the pathetic folks whose only qualification is the color of their skin.

Someone like Allen West is defeated solely due to the color of his skin. His natural constituency was the well informed well educated voter and the party realigned his district with an awful result.

I wonder if this was his original campaign slogan:

I never stole anything in my life--all I need is a chance.

Well, he got the chance and took it so now we have an unprincipled thief in office and a minority electorate that looks the other way. Splendid. Is it any wonder that they elect such grifters--they are a reflection of their leaders.

A corrupted people will demand a corrupt government. Just a little investigative reporting in Chicago would have exposed Jackson and his kind (Obama) decades ago. The ignorant and the gullible and the racists rule in these minority districts where the people demand to be victims of their own stupidity.

Take a good look at Chicago government. It is our future.

I don´t buy the argument that people vote for people who "give them free stuff." Chicago voters are mindless robots who vote for a "name" period. It doesn´t matter if the politician has not been doing his job for months. He has indictments up the wazoo. He hasn´t given them squat. The same could be said about Obama.

This amazes me to no end. I know that when it come to corrupt liberal it shouldn´t but it does. How does a lying, thieving smelly dish rag like JJJr win reelection without being anywhere near his district but a good and honorable man like LtCol Allen West can be defeated. It is beyond ridiculous. Just like the fact that he is "resigning due to his "health". Yeah right. This spawn of one of the biggest frauds on the planet has seen the writing on the wall and is getting while the gettings good. Some people know how to play the corrupt Chicago political game ie Odummer, The Daleys, and Dead Fish Emmanuel. While others do not ie Mosley- Braun, Blago and now this pile of dog sweeze. May he go far away and please take your papa with you.

It occurs that it isn´t just about race with these constituancies. Parasitic destruction must play a big part in the rise of characters like Kwame and Cheeks Kilpatric, Marion Barry, Maxine Waters, Mel Reynolds, etc.

Bringing the rest of America down to a level they could never above is a lot more satisfying than watching people with superior wit and effort continue to prosper.

The Mayo Clinic does not release ANYTHING related to a patient´s health to the press. Anything your reading about JJJR´s "health" has been written by JJJR (and his staff/lawyers). While I have no doubt JJJR is crazy, we have only his word that he has bipolar disorder. We have only his word that he visited the Mayo Clinic, and only his word about what they advised him.

My take, he´s up to his eyeballs in legal trouble and he´s trying to somehow claim a mental health issue made him do it...his Daddy must be so proud of him.

Don´t give me this stuff about misuse of campaign funds. If he needs a made up disease to get him out of this instead of just his blackness, they´ve got something far more serious than the purchase of some drapes. His old man has been living on laundered campaign funds for years.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

Obama offers new insults,

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

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.

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

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

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
