Editorial pages skewer Bob
Menendez over prostitution scandal

Daily Caller, by David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/3/2013 5:00:39 AM

The editorial boards of three newspapers have so far weighed in with statements about the scandal surrounding Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, who allegedly slept with prostitutes — at least one of whom was underage — during a series of trips to the Dominican Republic. And the consensus for Menendez is not good. Menendez “has lots of explaining to do,” The Asbury Park Press editorialized on Feb. 1. “Every passing day seems to bring new details about possible improprieties.” The Press said Menendez should not take over as chairman of the Senate foreign relations committee

Editorial pages skewer Menendez! Will The Garden State´s Senator Bobby finally be removed from office and stood in front of a Federal Grand Jury? Sadly, in my opinion, there is a "slim to none" chance of that ever happening!

And whatever became of New Jersey´s 54th Governor, The Honorable Jon Stevens Corzine?

This was all known BEFORE the election. Where is the outrage from Democrats about the fact that this was hidden from the electorate?

Hey, this disgusting human is their boy and the Democrats will do whatever is necessary to defend him. Besides, his behavior is totally consistent with their Party credo.

As usual, NJ Republicans put up a know nothing candidate against Menendez who didn´t bother to even try and win. Most NJ voters didn´t even know his name.

This is truly scandalous - but the real scandal is that his traveling buddy/host, the eye doctor owes 11 million in back taxes to the IRS and was the recipient of a $550 million government contract for some sort of security in the Dominican Republic. That is our hard-earned tax funded money, squandered and he doesn´t even pay his taxes.

Yes, poster #3, and ´slim´ left town a few days ago.

Republicans get hounded unmercifully until they give up a resign while Dims circle the wagons and protect any and all, reguardless of what they have done. And the drive-by media does their full throated roar to help them. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, it´s time for another little revolution, just to clean up and out D.C.

Even lo-fos will maybe become disgusted when they read the grocery store checkout scandal papers.

Out of curiosity, I looked up who ran against BM in the 2012 race, Republican Joe Kyrillos. That satisfied, I next read a little more to find out about BM´s wealthy friend, the eye surgeon, Dr. Melgen, who took him to the DR on several occasions.

This doctor is fat and looks like he sweats a lot. He and Menendez were pictured at a swanky restaurant with wine glasses on the table. So I would assume they both were drinking. I don´t have a problem with that so long as the doctor wasn´t operating on a patient in the next 24 hour period.

There is no way I would let him near me or my family or entrust my precious eyes to someone like him. He looks like he would be the kind of doctor who would smoke a cigar while operating. It makes one wonder how Dr. Melgen became so wealthy - I doubt that it was from eye surgeries he has performed. I don´t think he would have made the roster at Johns Hopkins or any number of highly recognized hospitals -such as the Kellogg eye center here in Michigan.

Diverting attention to the prostitutes when it´s the millions of dollars in no bid contracts that are his main problem.

Once it gets to the ethics commission you can be sure this will go no where.

It´s great laughing so hard out loud when Bob Menendez appears lately with that blank look on his face, by someone announcing some new democrat hot air at the rostrum. He´s just like the Clintons: can´t be embarrassed. Gotta love that breed! ha ha ha ha ha.

Well, here´s a significant point I haven´t seen mentioned anywhere -- in the US, if Menendez had sex with an underage girl, he´s guilty of [at least] statutory rape.

Yeah, yeah, prostitution´s legal in the DR, and no, I don´t know the age of [snort] "consent" there [must be lots of "freely-consenting" 14-year-old prostitutes, right?], but please -- do we really say it´s ok for anyone, much less a US Senator, by crossing a border [into a Third-World country, no less] to throw aside right and wrong? Right and wrong on such weighty matters? Right and wrong on matters that are serious crimes in the US? Really?

Cut him some slack. How many Demoncraps do you know who actually stimulated the economy. It was the economy of another country but at least it´s something. I doubt he will resign. But if he does Snookie would make a great replacement senator.

Pedophilia is considered such a heinous crime even among criminals, that convicted pedophiles are often attacked and even murdered by their fellow prison inmates.

Yet the Democratic party seems to find little wrong with pedophilia. Harry Reid is defending Bob Menendez, and the Democrats act as if they´d be perfectly happy if the whole issue were to be forgotten and they could continue to spend their days rubbing shoulders with a man so evil even convicted murderers wouldn´t tolerate him in their midst.

If it looks like Menendez will have to resign, book on one or both of these scenarios:

The Democrats in the NJ Legislature will rush to change the law, a la Massachusetts, to take away the ability of NJ Governor Christie to appoint an interim Senator.

They and the media will relentlessly pressure Christie in any way possible to remind him that he MUST replace Democrat with Democrat.

"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. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Let’s say you got into politics running for office as a Democrat. You hate Rupert Murdoch and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, and you really, really hate Bill Kristol. You despise bankers and got set up in activism by a group working on behalf of “the working class” and complaining: “Every day the rich tighten the chains . . . . They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.” You’re part of a group that endorses the Mearsheimer-Walt view that Israeli interests hold American foreign policy captive – a group that also wholeheartedly

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.

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

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.

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
