How Much Trouble Is
Senator Bob Menendez In?

Atlantic, by David Graham

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/2/2013 6:16:59 AM

Edwin Edwards -- bon vivant, convicted felon, three-time husband, and four-time Louisiana governor -- once cracked that he could only lose an election if he was "caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy." New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez faces some allegations that could test what exactly it would take to chase him out of office. (Snip)Since then, though, reporters have had time to dig in, and it´s become clear that something peculiar was afoot with Menendez´s close relationship with a Florida doctor and political donor with whom he traveled twice

Comments:
After the seemingly obligatory swipes at the Daily Caller, Graham smells smoke.

Yesterday, I ended a telcon with one of Menendez´s staffers with a shouting match. It was about gun control where Menendez wrote to me in a form letter that "he supports the second amendment." The staffer set up a half-dozen straw man arguments and wouldn´t let me rebut with logic. I despise this man now as much as my other senator, Lautenberg.

Anybody that thinks Melendez only traveled twice with this doctor is crazy and doesn´t have any business writing about it. One of the reasons the media may be trying to keep this scandal in the dark is the doctor also donated to the Clintons but so did madoff and that Chu character both big ponzi schemers.Also the big hedge fund crook in Texas donated to Clinton who never met a dirty donation they didn´t like.

The FEC has always been a slow incompetent government branch but it´s gotten a lot worse under Obama.They had a report a few weeks ago about shady Obama donations in ´08 and the story lasted 5 minutes.

A front page story today in WaPo covers Menendez´ ties to the doctor and his influence in obtaining a large contract, but not surprisingly, makes absolutely no mention of the prostitution charges. The liberal media has its way of picking and choosing just what part of the story they want us to know.

None. In fact as a democrat he has underachieved.

He wasn´t really there when the hookers were in the room. He had a lot of ice tea and had left the room to use the bathroom so he can´t for sure say the hookers were even there.

It depends on what your definition of the word "sex" is.

I did not have sex with these hookers. Not once.

As I did business with hookers while traveling I believed I could claim this was only a business trip.

Besides, What difference does it make?

Face it, he will skate. The Senate and Congress take care of their own. With Harry Reid guarding him and Mitch McConnell looking the other way, he´ll be forgiven. Love what happened to Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters.....not a thing.

Menendez belongs in jail. He is a cheat and a sexual predator. Also, the staffer he was protecting until after the election was returned to his country of sexual assault.

The reason the media is silent is because bill clinton was probably involved as well. How many times have the clintons been in the DR? Poor girls will probably be killed.

Since it was the Daily Caller breaking the story the media felt completely justified in looking the other way. When you get right down to it, they will favor a pedophile over any Republican.

As long as he made sure any underage prostitutes didn´t have to pay for their own birth control and never kept any of their resumes in a binder, ABCCBSNBCCNN will tell us that if he did hire minor prostitutes he´s not a woman -hating innocence -robbing hypocritical perv.

The media only cares about phony wars on women that help Democrats get elected. When actual women may have been exploited not so much. It´s the hypocrisy stupid.

He should be resigning soon, but won´t.

We need to link his supporters (Reid) with approving this behavior.

But then again, Mass. just elected a proven liar as their Senator so some things evidentily trump reason in Democrat politics.

No wonder Bill Clinton bought a place in the DR.

Above poster is right, this will become all about what money was on a report in D.C. and the laws against travel for sex with minors will be ignored.

Time too bring up birth control and Sandra Fluke to divert attention.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan
National Interest Magazine, by John J. Mearsheimer    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 6:11:05 AM     Post Reply
WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The Bundy Ranch Standoff
and Attitudes Toward the State

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Spotlighting a law that stripped

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

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. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
