ABC Gives Sen. Menendez
Six Minute Interview With No
Questions About FBI´s
Hooker Investigation

Newsbusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/27/2013 2:34:16 PM

On Friday it was revealed that the FBI is investigating Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) for allegedly sleeping with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. Despite this, when Menendez was given a six-minute interview with Martha Raddatz on ABC´s This Week Sunday, he was not asked one question about the investigation or the allegations (commentary follows with full transcript at end of post): Raddatz began the interview asking Menendez about what Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) had previously said on the program concerning immigration.

A Republican could could not have gone 10 seconds without the question. In fact, they would be asked to resign during the interview!

He´s a pedophile involving young girls and another prostitute from ABC named Martha Raddatz had nothing to ask him?

She has children but politics trump decency!

Wiki entry: Raddatz resides in Arlington, Virginia, with her third husband, journalist Tom Gjelten. She has two children from previous marriages: a daughter, Greta Bradlee, with Benjamin Bradlee, Jr.; and a son, Jake Genachowski.[8] She was previously married to Julius Genachowski, father of Jake and current head of the FCC under the Obama Administration

Not that his behavior shouldn´t be questioned, but if this is not illegal in a foreign country why is the FBI investigating? Does US law enforcement get involved if something is illegal here but legal where it was done? I really don´t know.

Menendez has a couple of other things rattling around in his closet.
He buys commercial buildings, finds non profits to rent from him, gets grant money for the non profits to pay him the rent.

He also had an illegal alien sex offender doing an internship in his office, and the feds waited until after the november 2012 election to detain/deport the pervert.

Senator Menendez is under investigation for under age sex. Bottomline, the worst that will happen to this criminal is a slap on the wrist. If you remember correctly, his office was hiding information about one of his staff members as an illegal that was sent back to his country because he had a background of some type of sexual misconduct. This disqualified him from a visa in this country. But of course, this information was withheld by the WH, FBI, DHS, and Menendez´s office until after the elections.

The Main StreaM Media isn´t about finding truth. It is about electing enough idiots with a D behind their name so they can ram through their socialist tyranny. They will start reporting these things when 20 million white conservative men (and former NRA members) are languishing in death camps in Wyoming and Montana.

Eric Holder defends using Justice

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

The increasingly open “civil war” now raging between a Republican establishment that favors big government and members of the Tea Party is a necessary evil that will eventually force the GOP back to its limited government principles, conservative leaders say. “This is part of a literally 102-year-old civil war that’s been going on in the Republican Party since 1912, when Teddy Roosevelt leaves the Republican Party, splits the party, starts the Bull Moose Party, which leads directly to Woodrow Wilson’s election with less than 42 percent of the vote,” Conservative HQ chairman Richard Viguerie told CNSNews.com.

In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there
