Editorial pages skewer Bob
Menendez over prostitution scandal

Daily Caller, by David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/3/2013 5:00:39 AM

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 was all known BEFORE the election. Where is the outrage from Democrats about the fact that this was hidden from the electorate?

As usual, NJ Republicans put up a know nothing candidate against Menendez who didn´t bother to even try and win. Most NJ voters didn´t even know his name.

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.

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.

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?

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.

If it looks like Menendez will have to resign, book on one or both of these scenarios:

The Democrats in the NJ Legislature will rush to change the law, a la Massachusetts, to take away the ability of NJ Governor Christie to appoint an interim Senator.

They and the media will relentlessly pressure Christie in any way possible to remind him that he MUST replace Democrat with Democrat.

Washington Post, by Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:08:09 PM     Post Reply
It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
