Yet Another Scandal for Harry Reid?
Townhall, by Carol Platt LieBau

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/13/2013 10:38:44 AM

New questions are being asked about the ethics of Sen. Harry Reid; a Utah businessman is alleging that his state´s attorney general demanded $600,000 as a bribe to Reid in exchange for dismissal of a federal investigation. Certainly the allegations could be false, but it´s worth noting this isn´t the first time Reid´s name has come up in connection with some pretty shady propositions. Remember the lucrative, underpriced land deal? Or the green energy conflict? There´s so much there, pithily summed up by Investors Business Daily as follows:

Let´s see Reid´s tax returns. Did he claim those bribes as income? /s

Reid is a criminal there is no doubt about that. This corruption needs to be placed on the laps of all democrats like one man´s believe that you can´t get pregnant from rape issue was placed on the laps of all Republicans.

Or as the dems say, It´s not the evidence, it´s the seriousness of the charge.

The only way Reid would ever be brought up on charges would be if Sheriff Joe of Arizona personally caught him with a literally smoking gun in the act of committing murder. Even then, he´d probably be found innocent if it proceeded to trial. Sad to say, the justice branch of our government is almost as broken as the executive and the legislative. And that extends down to state and county levels in some cases.

His nick name was Senator Clean Face for a reason. Look it up.

To my knowledge, no one has ponied up any direct evidence that Harry Reid was either involved or took a bribe. That said, I´m on the fence as to whether or not he was and did. I will say that Dingey probably isnt dumb enough to get caught directly. He has little people to act as inter-mediators.

A friend told me that Reid likes young boys.

Is this the accepted norm for dem pols? ...Who is investigating the rest, including the 0bama/Biden decisions regarding their funding of billions to so manynow failed enterprises in the privater sector? Their selective favoritism has resulted in taxpayers´ money going down the drain on follies, while at the same time, driving merited companies out of business. Government should NEVER be in competition with America´s free enterprise system! ...But alas, it IS the nature of the statist beast!

I believe it. Reid was deep into mafia corruption long before he entered politics. The FBI file on him must take up a whole room.

Reply 15 - Posted by: Spidey, 1/13/2013 4:32:04 PM     (No. 9114569)

Dingy cashed in on an insider land deal years ago and never declared the income on his senatorial disclosure form. When he got caught,he simply amended the form and walked away undamaged. His son is every bit the crook he is.

If it´s left up to Holder to investigate this,it´ll never happen.

I said a million times this is one the reasons they get a lot of money. It´s called money laundering and Nevada is particularly good at it.

I´d like to know more about his relationship with the Mob during his stay on the Nevada State Gaming Commission, not that it would matter to anyone.

I´m curious and someone out there must know. What is Harry Reid´s standing in his church. They throw people out for a lot less than he has done.

At the best of times it is hazardous for the mental equilibrium of a rational person randomly to turn on the television set, and it is probably especially so in summer. Last week, in a cavalierly daredevil moment, I did so, and was almost reduced to the incommunicable state of Zechariah in the Temple as a result. First, I unluckily happened upon what purported to be a serious discussion of the supposed difference in public responses to men’s and women’s weeping. The party of vintage, quaveringly emotional feminism, twitching and squirming as they emitted the unimaginable frustrations

One day after the Yemeni authorities took credit for disrupting a terrorist plot against oil and gas lines there, the White House continued to rigorously defend the administration´s decision to keep a record numbers of embassies around the world shuttered with no end in sight to the closures. U.S. officials are remaining on high alert and will continue to keep 19 diplomatic facilities in the Middle East, Northern Africa and Central Asia shuttered as intelligence agencies evaluate the threat level.

the Fort Hood Attack Terrorism

Staff Sergeant Alonzo Lunsford told prosecutors this week that Major Nidal Hasan shouted “Allahu Akbar” before he opened fire on military personnel at the Fort Hood base in 2009. Hasan’s Islamism-animated killing spree caused the deaths of 13 people and one unborn child, and wounded 32 other individuals. In a remarkable and heartbreaking Washington Post opinion piece today, Shawn Manning, who barely survived Hasan’s rampage, urged the U.S. Army to designate the murderous act as terrorism. Sadly, the U.S. Army and the Pentagon steadfastly insist on the labeling the jihadi killing a non-ideological form of “workplace violence.” Manning described Hasan’s horrific violence:

"It depends on what the meaning of the word ´is´ is." Just like slap bracelets and Furbies, that Bill Clinton quote pungently evokes the 1990s. The ´90s are so hot right now! Maybe that explains what President Obama told Jay Leno last night during an appearance on The Tonight Show, because his answer was positively Clintonian. Here´s a transcript, with emphasis added: LENO: It´s safe to say that we learned about these threats through the NSA intelligence program? Is that a fair assessment? OBAMA: Well, this intelligence-gathering that we do is a critical component of counterterrorism. And obviously, with Mr. Snowden

Sometimes politics is just “one damned thing after another.” But sometimes not. Sometimes those damned things constitute a trend and form a pattern. So it is today, with President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. * Our defense capabilities are being slashed. As the editors of the Washington Post pointed out two weeks ago, funding for the Pentagon “is on track to fall tens of billions short of what it needs to fulfill the strategic mission that President Obama has articulated for national defense.” The Post noted that “Mr. Obama told congressional Democrats that the Pentagon should get no more attention

Official warnings of imminent—or even of not so imminent—al-Qaida attacks have (fortunately) had a perfect record: They never seem to pan out. During the George W. Bush administration, the public was regaled repeatedly with warnings that intelligence had determined, through an in-depth analysis of “chatter” and other such information, that al-Qaida was about to strike again. Thus in May 2004—a few months before the presidential election—Attorney General John Ashcroft, standing beside the grim-faced director of the FBI, Robert Mueller, announced that “credible intelligence from multiple sources” indicated that al-Qaida was planning an attack

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney jumped into the debate over the GOP’s future Tuesday night, warning congressional Republicans against forcing a government shutdown in their quest to stop President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. Romney addressed more than 200 donors on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee at a fundraiser for the New Hampshire Republican Party, staged just four miles from the vacation home where he has spent much of the summer with his family. The event was closed to the media, but his office released his prepared remarks.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

According to an “exclusive” Drudge Report flash this afternoon, that time slot will be 9 p.m. ET. “Superstar newswoman Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM slot, top sources reveal,” the Drudge Report wrote. “The shock announcement is set for later this month.” Fox’s 9 p.m. hour is currently helmed by Sean Hannity, leading to speculation over whether he could be out of a primetime gig.

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

In a move some claim is tantamount to social engineering, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it. HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July. "Unfortunately, in too many of our hardest hit communities, no matter how hard

National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden extended his 15 minutes of fame Wednesday, as headlines tied his saga to President Barack Obama’s decision to cancel a planned summit meeting in Moscow next month with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But analysts said the talk of Snowden’s role in the cancellation obscured a more basic reality: The U.S.-Russia relationship is now so frosty that it didn’t appear the two presidents would actually accomplish enough to merit such a high-profile meeting. After four years, the much-vaunted reset in U.S.-Russian relations has devolved into a chilly standoff over issues like the Kremlin’s support for Syria
