Emails show FBI investigating
Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping
with underage Dominican prostitutes

Daily Caller, by David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/25/2013 5:49:57 AM

Documents published online for the first time Thursday indicate that the FBI opened an inquiry into New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on August 1, 2012, focusing on repeated trips he took to the Dominican Republic with longtime campaign contributor and Miami eye doctor Salomon Melgen. TheDC reported in November that Menendez purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties. The documents, which The Daily Caller had obtained hours earlier from an anonymous source, also indicate that Carrie Levine, research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW),

The word, "Democratic" in the first sentence? This is obviously not one of those guvmint propaganda-spreading news sources.

Judging from the performance of congress and the rest of the obama administration, this sort of thing is no doubt widespread amongst our leadeship. Menendez was just careless enough to get caught.

Now we have to learn to say, President Menendez. Nothing stirs the passion of the low information voter like deviant sex.

You´re telling me that Bob Menedez had to pay for sex; are you next going to tell me that Bawney Fwank´s boyfriend was getting more than one type of Fannie compensation?

We can only hope that twenty years ago Bob knocked up one of his hookers with twins, and she named them Lyle and Eric.

Menendez is the incompetent creep that was handed the job when the other corrupt jackass Corzine vacated the seat to become Gov. The brain-dead NJ voter contingent rewarded both Corzine and Menendez by re-electing Menendez in 2010 to another "illustrious" 4-year term in which he does nothing.
I have lived in NJ my entire life and I´ve always loved it here but I´m very seriously considering leaving. I can´t take the imbeciles that have flooded in any longer.

This, of course, would only be an outrage if the miscreant were a Republican.

RATS have their "it´s just about sex" get out of jail free card.

You know, life would be so much easier without a concscience. Which obviously is a requirement for membership in the Democrat party.

Folks, which is worse? A guy molests his daughter and gets twenty years in prison,does the time and has to register as a sex offender for over a decade upon release or a politician who travels thousands of miles to have sex with underage prostitutes at someone else´s expense, does it multiple times and gets away with it scot free and never has to register? Both are wrong, but which is the greater crime and tragedy? Who goes to prison now days? Joe Bloe or a Senator? The system is not just nor is it justice.

Hopefully this will derail the burgeoning career of his daughter, "Democrat Strategist" Alicia Menendez. She´s one of those hack talking heads who appears on Hannity or O´Reilly and regurgitates the the 0vomit Party Line. One of her trademark jabs at the GOP is that it doesn´t respect or care about Latinos! Isn´t that amazing?! Hey, Alicia, apparently your pig-faced father is also pretty hard on Latina juveniles! Talk about LOW, the article stated that he even renegs on the agreed upon fee for services after he´s done the dirty deed. He´s sewer scum.

Conveniently, if he could somehow be extricated from his Senate seat, Chris Christie can then appoint Newark mayor Cory Booker to complete Menendez´ term, thereby eliminating Booker as a challenger in the upcoming New Jersey gubernatorial race. Since it´s obvious that Booker is on the Regime´s fast track, I foresee Menendez being ousted from the Senate. I imagine his disgusting sexual predilections may have been practiced on U.S. soil at some point in his life, and he may ultimately be convinced to voluntarily fade away after he receives an offer he can´t refuse.

Menendez is just enhancing his resume for bigger things in the ´Rat party. This kind of deviance will at minimum get him the VP slot with Hillary in ´16. The sheeple think this kind of thing is great, as long as you have that "D" after your name. After all, it just proves that Menendez is a "playah".

A good example as to the treatment of liberals as opposed to conservatives. Menendez has no worries. First, any criminal action must go thru the justice department and Obama and Holder will be sure to squelch any advancement of that. Second, there will be no effort on the part of the MSM to delve into the accusations or even legitimate charges. If The Daily Caller or FoxNews tries to cover the details the Democrats will cry "POLITICS!" And the MSM, entertainment, and liberal judges will jump into action.

Menendez must be chuckling over it all.

That´s what Sen. Menendez uses to summon his underage prostitutes.

He´s been borrowing pre-owned condoms from BillyBoob Klintoon, I hear.

Usually BillyBoob donates his pre-owned condoms to charity to claim a tax deduction.

Sen Cardin of Md will leap-frog Sen Menendez to replace Sen Kerry as Chair, Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, now that two major and well deserved hits have been put on Menendez...not paying the agreed upon rate for his call girls in some Latin American country and having an illegal alien child molester on his staff...

As we know, if he were a Repub, the drum-beat would have begun long ago for his ouster.

The media would have picked it up immediately, we would never get a break from it, the cameras would haunt him, the comedians would ridicule, Dem/Lefties would harrass and harrangue.

He would be hounded out of office. And all Rs would be tainted and smeared by association.

Menendez is an evil little man. Move around some of those rocks and weeds, we´ll most likey see much more and even uglier stuff.

But hey! what difference does it make? think: Teddy Kennedy manslaughterer; Bawney Fwank and his Hot Bottom male prostitute "room-mate´s" "parking tickets" and Gerry Studds, getting underage male pages drunk and molesting.

(By the way, all THREE of these pervy pervs are from MA. NJ has a way to go to catch up.)

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas.

The U.S. must stand behind
its security obligations

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio faced off in a televised debate on Tuesday against a Republican candidate for Texas lieutenant governor, even though Mr. Castro, officially anyway, is not running for anything at all. “Sometimes I get impatient,” Mr. Castro said on a recent afternoon here. “And I figure I have nothing else going on, so I might as well.” The mayor was joking, up to a point. Ever since he became the first Latino to give a Democratic National Convention keynote address in 2012, he and his identical twin brother, Representative Joaquin Castro, the Texas Democrat

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
