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 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.
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.
Sen. Ted Cruz isn’t on the ballot next year, but as candidates meet Monday’s filing deadline for Republican primaries, he appears ever-present. Cruz’s tea party-fueled, come-from-behind trouncing of David Dewhurst in the Senate race last year has provided him a gravitational pull that is moving GOP candidates further right and producing scores of would-be first-time officeholders. “You’ve got two things happening,” said Republican political consultant Bill Miller. One of them is the “Cruz phenomenon, and he is the phenom at this moment,” he said. “The other is that conservatives believe that if they’re going to succeed — with the Democratic administration in Washington
Six months after the Internal Revenue Service´s inspector general revealed that the tax-collection agency had been targeting conservative organizations for added scrutiny and delaying their applications for tax-exempt status, the IRS has proposed new rules for handling political activity by nonprofits. The proposed rules would plunge the agency deeper into political regulation. The rules would upset more than 50 years of settled law and practice by limiting the ability of certain tax-exempt nonprofits, organized under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code, to conduct nonpartisan voter registration and voter education. Such organizations would be forbidden to leave records of officeholder votes
Fact: The IRS targeted conservative and tea party groups requesting tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election. That’s a fact. Congress held hearings — embarrassing hearings. Three top Internal Revenue Service officials resigned. No heads rolled, but for the Obama administration, and the lawless Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., that amounted to a major scandal. Even White House spokesman Jay “Circus” Carney called the IRS’ actions “inappropriate.” Fact. But President Obama, in an interview last week with sycophant Chris Matthews, now says the entire scandal was made up by the media. “When we do things right, they don’t get
Bob Dole once made a droll crack to the New York Times about Newt Gingrich, then the speaker of the House. “Gingrich’s staff has these five file cabinets, four big ones and this little tiny one,” Dole said. “Number one is ‘Newt’s ideas.’ Number two, ‘Newt’s ideas.’ Number three, number four, ‘Newt’s ideas.’ The little one is ‘Newt’s Good Ideas.’” Here’s one from Gingrich’s little file: he has been pushing back against some of the more thoughtless conservative reactions to the death of Nelson Mandela. The backlash has ranged from the merely tone-deaf—think of Rick Santorum drawing comparisons between Obamacare and
More than any other subject, apolitical sorts will ask me about Fox News. “Is it really crazy?” my British friends inquire, flashing the sort of smile that a botanist might exhibit while examining a newly discovered species of moss. “Is it, like, really right wing?” The question has always slightly irritated me, showing as it does that the considerable success that the Left has had in demonizing its opposition extends even across the Atlantic. Certainly, both Fox’s commentary and its ostensibly straight reporting are marked by the right-leaning proclivities of its owners. But the notion that the network is unique in
The good news, if you want to call it that, is that roughly 1.6 million Americans have enrolled in ObamaCare so far. The not-so-good news is that 1.46 million of them actually signed up for Medicaid. If that trend continues, it could bankrupt both federal and state governments. Medicaid is already America’s third-largest government program, trailing only Social Security and Medicare, as a proportion of the federal budget. Almost 8 cents out of every dollar that the federal government spends goes to Medicaid. That’s more than $265 billion per year. Indeed, already Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid account for 48% of federal spending.
On Wednesday afternoon, a bunch of twentysomethings were summoned to the White House to hear an infomercial from Barack Obama himself. He was pitching health insurance. “The product is good. It’s affordable,” the President told them. “… We’re going to keep working through any glitches, problems that may come up.” He urged them to spread the word. “So if you’re a student body president, set up a conference on campus … If you’re a bartender, have a happy hour … Post something on your Facebook or Instagram.”Mr. Obama desperately needs healthy young people to sign on to Obamacare in order
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
