Civil-rights heir’s ‘stolen’ $ouvenirs
New York Post, by Geoffrey Earle

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/16/2013 5:22:20 AM

WASHINGTON — Beat it! In a humiliating end to a once-promising political career, former Chicago Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. agreed to plead guilty to a laundry list of graft in a $750,000 fund-raising scandal — including stealing donations to buy luxury items such as fur capes, a $43,350 gold Rolex watch and a trove of Michael Jackson memorabilia. As part of the plea agreement, Jackson, the son of the civil-rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson, agreed to forfeit the multitude of personal items bought with donations between 2007 and 2009 that had no conceivable connection to campaign business.

A family of thieves and finally one got caught. His old man sits on untold fortunes and has never had to pay taxes on one bit of it.

Don´t ask for sympathy from me!!!!

As with nearly all offspring, Junior must received his values and morals from daddy.

Jesse Sr. apparently skipped the lesson in how to keep graft covered up though when training Jr.

He completely got away with trying to buy Obama´s old senate seat. He raised a ton of money at a fundraiser during the whole Blago thing.Every idiot knows you don´t touch campaign funds for personal use but he thought he was above the law being a congressman and black.

Jr´s problem was that unlike his dad he ran for elective office. maybe this is why his dad never even seriously tried to be dogcatcher even though his admirers pushed for it.

It´s not like we didn´t already know his party affiliation, but a headline reading "Dem Civil-rights heir´s stolen souvenirs" would have been much preferred.
Better yet, "Another Dem Congressthief"

The Chicago Machine puts these mental munchkins in OUR House and Senate and they play and spend the taxpayer´s money while the "Machine" tells them how to vote and who to tax and who to give "special" favors to, i.e. senator menendez who was banging teenage girls in South America....while his friend got millions in taxpayer´s dollars.....

Watch him walk, get "rehab", hire a public relations firm for the "redo" and eventual release into the public scene. It´s a predictable formula these days.

Those of you who have never lived in Chicago now see what "The Chicago Way" means. The machine gets paid. One way or the other.

Its very well documented that cronies of the last mayor had bought up the real estate that would have been then boughtout at inflated prices for Olympic sites had Chicago won the 2016 games. The machine gets paid.

When I first lived in Chicago in 1986 a report came out about a federal grant to run summer programs for kids in the city. 95% of the money had gone to administrators salaries. All the administrators were machine pols who knew nothing about recreation and who never attended a single meeting. But they got paid.

The Chicago Way.

He will go on to join the long list of black Dem pols who´s elect-ability increases after some period of time communing with the oppressed prison population.

The outrageously high percentage of blacks in prison is considered to be evidence of prejudice and oppression rather than of actual crimes committed.

No, really.

It´s a Federal charge...somebody wants him gone. Eric Holder has turned a blind eye to other, more serious circumstances, from the Black Panthers to heavens knows. He didn´t on this...and the behavior doubtfully began in 2007. Chicago politics ain´t bean bag, especially when the Feds are playing.

I never bought into his mental illness act for one minute. I always thought JJ Jr. was suffering from severe guilt of being the main reason why Blago is in prison today. But, I gave him too much credit for having a guilty conscience. With these revelations, there´s no conscience no guilt, he´s just another corrupt Democrat feeding at the taxpayers trough.

Only "up to five years"? I would think that wire fraud and mail fraud alone would garner a much stiffer penalty. What are the chances that an "ordinary" person would spend more time in prison for these offenses?

JJ has used his sons to extort money from any number of people over the years. Budweiser, Toyota, BP, just to name a few. There is even a book about JJ´s extortion racket. JJ is a low life who even flunked out of divinity school, but somehow managed to get the Rev title added to his name. God does not sleep. These people will get their due one day.

Well. A story and a "family" with lots of "ends" and not a single "clean one" to "pick it up by." Ugh.

Public-figure-Daddy "Reverend" can´t manage to teach "Thou shalt not steal" to his namesake?

Oh, yeah -- the "Reverend" had a commandment or two that were... "problematic" for himself, didn´t he? [Happy Father´s Day, Je$$e!]

But some "deal": Hey, prison time should have been Job One for the prosecution. Yet: a. it´s not even in the "deal"; b. the deal is some one-count give-away, with a "max" of 5 years?

"Deals" with crooks, especially a corrupt House member: OK, any DA-type organization has to manage resources, and can´t afford big investigations and trials for every perp. But, for cryin´ out loud, if this guy [House member from big city, from a "Lookit me!" public-figure "iffy" family], with his history [trying to buy a Senate seat from a corrupt Guv, just for one example] isn´t a perp to pillory in a big public trial, who is? Who is?

"Taste" in indulgences: I haven´t [read: can´t and won´t; yuck] dug into the examples of his "taste," though I have seen a couple things mentioned. But gee, no mention of, say: a Sargent watercolor; an Eakins oil; a Duesenberg saved and restored; a hefty gift to U. of Chicago, the Art Institute, an adoption program, or a hospital; we could all find hundreds of really positive ways to use some of that loot. Junior, not so much, it seems.

Number 4, my supplication to the Lord is that he and his wife get the full five years, however, since he will be sentenced in Chicago, my guess is he will get off light with fines and probably one year. His crooked wife will get no time at all "´cuz someone has to care for the chirren." Patty Blago got off in this fashion.

The Increasing Desperation of Democrats

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Obama admin wants to require companies

The Obama administration is poised to change regulations to allow for union “ambush elections” in which workers have less time to decide whether or not to join a union — and in which workers’ phone numbers and home addresses are provided to unions. The administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections — in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize — to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose

Following the deadly avalanche that killed at least 13 people, the Discovery Channel has realized that a live jump off the summit of Mount Everest is just a bad, bad plan and has cancelled the special.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Sherpa community." Joby Ogwyn was to jump off Everest in a wing suit on May 11. On Friday, while the climbers

The Epic Hypocrisy of Tom Steyer
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article

Billionaire hedge fund operator and “green” energy magnate Tom Steyer has pledged $100 million in the 2014 election cycle to help Democratic candidates who oppose the Keystone pipeline and who favor “green” energy over fossil fuels. Steyer claims to be a man of principle who has no financial interest in the causes he supports, but acts only for the public good. That is a ridiculous claim: Steyer is the ultimate rent-seeker who depends on government connections to produce subsidies and mandates that make his “green” energy investments profitable. He also is, or was until recently, a major investor in Kinder

What happens when presidents lie? The American public has had plenty of experience with this in recent years. Liar-president could be the new hyphenate occupation like writer-producer or architect-contractor. Almost every president has shaded things a bit, but three modern ones have been unabashed bull artists — Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and, of course, Barack Obama. Clinton ultimately got a pass for his prevarications. Nixon didn’t. Neither deserved one. But our current liar-president deserves one even less, because his lies have been of substance, affecting policy. Nixon and Clinton just lied in self-defense — normal human cowardice. Obama is something else again. He

Obama shuts down debate

When President Obama trumpeted the 8 million figure representing people who had signed up for ObamaCare, he didn’t just declare it a victory. He declared the debate over — and told Republicans “it’s well time to move on.” Now, we understand the eagerness of politicians to declare debates over. It’s certainly easier than defending ObamaCare’s broken promises, or even providing the breakdowns behind that 8 million top-line number that would let us measure if the program is getting the sign-ups it needs. Increasingly, however, it seems that the “shut up and move on” trope has become the go-to response of liberals on

A disturbing story out of the Sooner State this week, noted by Doug Mataconis at Outside the Beltway. Under the terms of a recently passed bill, expected to be signed by Governor Mary Fallin, homeowners who install their own private solar or wind turbine energy resources and sell some of the juice back to energy companies will be paying a fee for the privilege. Utility customers who want to install rooftop solar panels or small wind turbines could face extra charges on their bills after legislation passed the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Monday.

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

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

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

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

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
