Lautenberg calls Menendez
controversy ‘a terrible tragedy’

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/31/2013 6:03:42 PM

Sen. Bob Menendez’s (D-N.J.) New Jersey colleague has responded to the growing controversy surrounding the senator’s ties to a doctor who was recently raided, and he’s not exactly doing Menendez any favors. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), in comments reported by the Star-Ledger, left open the possibility that the allegations against Menendez could have merit: “If there are infractions as they are reported, it’s too bad,” Lautenberg told reporters. “There a lot that’s said and covered, but I for one know Bob as a very capable United States senator, and I’m sorry to see him in this position,”

Comments:
Menendez has interesting "friends."

Yeah it’s just terrible that poor upstanding Menendez got caught having sex (for hire) with underage girls. Just a darn rotten shame. He is so capable and stuff. The first thing out of this fossils mouth should have been some inking of concern for the victim underage girls) and not for the Perp!

Sounds like Frank has the inside scoop. Let´s hope that Christie can actually manage to appoint a Republican when it´s time to replace the little whore addict.

~~“(He) has built an almost sterling reputation for a lot of years and our hope is that this, what we’re hearing, is not as it’s presented,” Lautenberg said. “I think Bob will survive this with his good work. This is a terrible tragedy. And we’re not yet sure what all of the facts are.”~~

Frank Lautenberg is an old senile fool. The fire in Brazil was a tragedy. The shootings at Newtown was a tragedy.

The randy child abusing junior senator from New Jersey is in a mess of his own making.

Democrats are always making excuses for sexual perverts.

Bingo #4. This means the inside word going around the House and Senate is that Menendez has been caught with no good way out.

The MSM ignored this at first now it´s hit the national news.

He´s a senator in the U.S. Congress.

Dems do have a sense of humor - Menendez is to replace Kerry as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee. Who understands foreign affairs better than this deviant?

If this child abuser does resign, perhaps Obama will appoint him to be our ambassador to the Dominican Republic. He could fill the embassy with the 12 and 13 year girls he prefers. As Democrats love to say, It´s for the children.

The two senators from NJ, Lautenberg and Menendez, have hardly brought home the bacon from DC over the years. Menendez takes little interest in general NJ issues, unless it has an Hispanic slant to it. Lautenberg was unheard from for ages until Chris Christie cancelled the ´tunnel to Macy´s basement´ multi-billion dollar boondoggle project, and then he suddenly had a hissy fit. Doubtful he can even find his own way back to NJ from DC.

Is the tragedy that he got caught or is it a tragedy because some liberal media bozo says it is? The tragedy is that a loser such as Mendez goes to a foreign country to use young girls for his pleasure--the victims he used this time, and this is probably not the first time speaks volumns about this sorry guy´s character. The tragedy will be that he won´t be censured by the Senate, and it will all fade away--as usual for dems.

Whenever a Democrat/liberal/leftist goes ´astray´ the MSM displays a lot of understanding and sympathy for the alleged or outright perpetrator. For instance - "What a terrible thing to have happened to this outstanding and honorable public servant. We must all gather round now and give him our support."

In full display is the moral fibre of the people running our government. This is precisely why there is no leadership and explains the lack of constitutional adherence.

As I recall...

Menendez was appointed the the US Senate by then Governor Jon Corzine. Shorty after, he was investigated for renting his childhood home to a non profit group, for the sum of $300,000.00, while he obtained Federal Funds for that same group. It was thought that the group was paying inflated rents to Menendez as part of a deal.

The person who spearheaded that particular 2006 investigation was the partner of NJ Judge Patty Schwartz. The same Patty Schwartz that Obama nominated as Judge to the US Court of Appeals, for the Third Circuit, who´s nomination Menendez held up.

Senator Menendez also accepted illegal campaign contributions, to the sum of $46,900.00 from Joseph Bigia. Senator Menendez claimed he didn´t know, and said he would donate the money to charity.

Menendez also served on the probe of MF Global, the company once ran by Jon Corzine.

Our "lawmakers" are crooks - out for themselves. What else can we expect? They make the rules, they get away with murder. Only when their fellow crooks get skittish about their own power do we see anyone knocked off their pedestal.

Seems to me that any rat aspiring candidate just has to get the approval of the unions and they´re set for life.

No Profiles in Courage in the rat party!

Did anyone else notice that recently Menendez was on the national news making statements about current events? I just figured the MSM was under orders to try to give the rat cover.

Asia seeks Obama’s

Associated Press, by Julie Pace    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/19/2014 1:38:47 PM     Post Reply
Washington - As President Barack Obama travels through Asia this coming week, he will find a region that’s warily watching the crisis in Ukraine through the prism of its own territorial tensions with China. Each of the four countries on Obama’s itinerary — Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — has a dispute with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas. (Snip) Administration officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, have taken a tougher line on the territorial issues in recent weeks, sternly warning China against the use of military force and noting that the U.S. has not formally taken sides on the question

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

Washington - The National Archives on Friday released its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics including the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures as varied as Richard M. Nixon and Oprah Winfrey. The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016. Here are some notable sections:

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

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'

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."

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.
