Lautenberg calls Menendez
controversy ‘a terrible tragedy’

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/31/2013 6:03:42 PM

Sen. Bob Menendez’s (D-N.J.) New Jersey colleague has responded to the growing controversy surrounding the senator’s ties to a doctor who was recently raided, and he’s not exactly doing Menendez any favors. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), in comments reported by the Star-Ledger, left open the possibility that the allegations against Menendez could have merit: “If there are infractions as they are reported, it’s too bad,” Lautenberg told reporters. “There a lot that’s said and covered, but I for one know Bob as a very capable United States senator, and I’m sorry to see him in this position,”

Comments:
Menendez has interesting "friends."

Yeah it’s just terrible that poor upstanding Menendez got caught having sex (for hire) with underage girls. Just a darn rotten shame. He is so capable and stuff. The first thing out of this fossils mouth should have been some inking of concern for the victim underage girls) and not for the Perp!

~~“(He) has built an almost sterling reputation for a lot of years and our hope is that this, what we’re hearing, is not as it’s presented,” Lautenberg said. “I think Bob will survive this with his good work. This is a terrible tragedy. And we’re not yet sure what all of the facts are.”~~

Frank Lautenberg is an old senile fool. The fire in Brazil was a tragedy. The shootings at Newtown was a tragedy.

The randy child abusing junior senator from New Jersey is in a mess of his own making.

Democrats are always making excuses for sexual perverts.

Bingo #4. This means the inside word going around the House and Senate is that Menendez has been caught with no good way out.

The MSM ignored this at first now it´s hit the national news.

Dems do have a sense of humor - Menendez is to replace Kerry as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee. Who understands foreign affairs better than this deviant?

If this child abuser does resign, perhaps Obama will appoint him to be our ambassador to the Dominican Republic. He could fill the embassy with the 12 and 13 year girls he prefers. As Democrats love to say, It´s for the children.

The two senators from NJ, Lautenberg and Menendez, have hardly brought home the bacon from DC over the years. Menendez takes little interest in general NJ issues, unless it has an Hispanic slant to it. Lautenberg was unheard from for ages until Chris Christie cancelled the ´tunnel to Macy´s basement´ multi-billion dollar boondoggle project, and then he suddenly had a hissy fit. Doubtful he can even find his own way back to NJ from DC.

Is the tragedy that he got caught or is it a tragedy because some liberal media bozo says it is? The tragedy is that a loser such as Mendez goes to a foreign country to use young girls for his pleasure--the victims he used this time, and this is probably not the first time speaks volumns about this sorry guy´s character. The tragedy will be that he won´t be censured by the Senate, and it will all fade away--as usual for dems.

As I recall...

Menendez was appointed the the US Senate by then Governor Jon Corzine. Shorty after, he was investigated for renting his childhood home to a non profit group, for the sum of $300,000.00, while he obtained Federal Funds for that same group. It was thought that the group was paying inflated rents to Menendez as part of a deal.

The person who spearheaded that particular 2006 investigation was the partner of NJ Judge Patty Schwartz. The same Patty Schwartz that Obama nominated as Judge to the US Court of Appeals, for the Third Circuit, who´s nomination Menendez held up.

Senator Menendez also accepted illegal campaign contributions, to the sum of $46,900.00 from Joseph Bigia. Senator Menendez claimed he didn´t know, and said he would donate the money to charity.

Menendez also served on the probe of MF Global, the company once ran by Jon Corzine.

Our "lawmakers" are crooks - out for themselves. What else can we expect? They make the rules, they get away with murder. Only when their fellow crooks get skittish about their own power do we see anyone knocked off their pedestal.

Seems to me that any rat aspiring candidate just has to get the approval of the unions and they´re set for life.

No Profiles in Courage in the rat party!

Did anyone else notice that recently Menendez was on the national news making statements about current events? I just figured the MSM was under orders to try to give the rat cover.

Virtual currencies like bitcoin will be taxed like property — not currency, the Internal Revenue Service said Tuesday. The IRS says bitcoin is not legal tender. You can´t use it to pay your taxes. However, if you receive wages in bitcoin, you have to pay taxes on it just like you would if you got paid in dollars. Or if you got paid in chickens. The IRS issued a series of 16 questions and answers Tuesday to clarify the tax treatment of virtual currencies like bitcoin. In general, the IRS says it will apply the same rules that govern other barter transactions. If you receive wages in bitcoin, they would be taxed at their fair market value at the time you were

The New York Times reported today that the White House will ask Congress to end the National Security Agency´s open-ended collection of data about Americans´ calling habits. Under the proposal, the bulk records would stay in the hands of phone companies, which would not be required to retain the data for any longer than they normally would.

Although cleanup efforts continue, ships are being cleared to move through the channel by a Port Coordination Team and barges have been allowed to resume operations, according to a statement issued by the Texas City Y Response Unified Command.

Income growth was slower in 2013 than the year before in every state, according to new federal data. But don’t worry, it was all just the result of a year-old political fight. (Snip) But compare each state to its own recent record, and you’ll see incomes decelerating. Why? Well, the “fiscal cliff” — the end-of-2012 fight over tax hikes and spending cuts. One of those expiring cuts, the payroll tax cut, was putting money into the hands of Americans. Once it expired, that money started flowing back to the government. Also, the comparison isn’t quite fair. Income growth in 2012 was artificially higher due to the fiscal cliff because of concerns

Judging by the recent royal temper tantrums and the parade of op-eds suggesting ways to soothe the Saudis, President Obama’s trip to Saudi Arabia on Thursday is shaping up as one of the more awkward diplomatic encounters this side of the “Red Wedding.” Saudi officials have made no secret of their displeasure over the United States’ support of democratic change in Egypt and across the region, its refusal to leap into a Syrian quagmire and its role in the nuclear negotiations with Iran. The Saudis have hardly been assuaged by U.S. deference to Riyadh on their human rights abuses or passive acceptance of Saudi support for Egypt’s

Senate Democrats will remove provisions from a proposed aid package for Ukraine that would change how the United States provides money for the International Monetary Fund in order to ensure quicker passage of the measure, Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) said Tuesday. The decision caps more than a week of disagreement between Democrats and Republicans over whether to use an aid package for the new Ukrainian government to also make changes sought by the White House that would shift about $63 billion in IMF money from a crisis fund to a general account. Doing so would make good on a 2010 pledge by the

Not too long ago, the Greens of Oklahoma City were law-abiding people running an arts-and-crafts chain called Hobby Lobby. They weren’t disturbing the peace, or denying anyone his or her rights. They were minding their own business — quite successfully and in keeping with their Christian faith. The roughly 600 Hobby Lobby stores stock Christian products, close on Sundays, and play Christian music. Then one day Uncle Sam showed up to make an offer that the Greens couldn’t refuse — literally. As part of Obamacare, federal law demands that the chain cover contraceptives that the Greens consider abortifacients.

As I discussed last week, the fundamental problem that Ukraine poses for Russia, beyond a long-term geographical threat, is a crisis in internal legitimacy. (Snip) At the very least, the Russians intend to reverse events in Ukraine. At most, the Russians have reached the conclusion that the United States intends to undermine Russia´s power. They will resist. The United States has the option of declining confrontation, engaging in meaningless sanctions against individuals and allowing events to take their course. Alternatively, the United States can choose to engage and confront the Russians.

Cairo - An Egyptian court has sentenced 529 people to death in the largest capital punishment case on record in Egypt, judicial authorities said Monday. The alleged supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi were convicted on charges of killing a single police officer, the attempted murder of two other officers, and attacking a police station in the Nile Valley city of Minya in August. Sixteen people were acquitted. The mass sentencing underscored the severity of an ongoing campaign by Egypt’s military-backed leaders to silence opposition, eight months after a military coup ousted Morsi, the country’s first democratically elected

The American Association for the Advancement of Science came as close as such a respectable institution can to screaming an alarm last week. "As scientists, it is not our role to tell people what they should do," it said as it began one of those sentences that you know will build to a "but". "But human-caused climate risks abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes." In other words, the most distinguished scientists from the country with the world´s pre-eminent educational institutions were trying to shake humanity out of its complacency. Why weren´t their warnings leading the news? In one sense, the association´s appeal

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

President Barack Obama flies Sunday to a Europe shaken by Vladimir Putin’s seizure of Crimea and his threats against eastern parts of Ukraine. At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism – scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis – Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russia’s neighbor and sometime rival. Putin has forced the United States and Europe to refocus on the origins of the modern transatlantic alliance -- the 1949 NATO defense partnership designed to prevent a

Congressional Republicans, led by House Oversight Committee chair Darrell Issa,are planning another IRS coal-raking exercise for Wednesday, hauling the tax agency´s commissioner in for a hearing about the nearly year-old tea party targeting scandal. [Snip] An aide to one Republican committee member said Monday that the White House and the Treasury Department were already dangerously close to causing a constitutional crisis. ´They´ve blown off the subpoenas,´ the aide said, referring to legal demands the committee issued to the IRS on August 2 and February 14. ´If the DOJ keeps dragging its heels too, and can just get away with it,

London - A remarkable piece of high-tech data detective work has provided what looks to be the missing clue to the tragic fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, an expert said Monday. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak earlier on Monday said that information provided by British satellite company Inmarsat and the British government´s Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) confirmed that MH370 had flown to a remote part of the Indian Ocean where the flight ended. (Snip) Inmarsat had come up with a theory to apply to the data it had collected from MH370 during the flight, and had then tested the results on aircraft in

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard. He got a scholarship to a

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the
