Inside the Jackson Scheme
WLS-TV [Chicago], by Chuck Goudie

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/20/2013 7:35:12 PM

(CHICAGO) How did Jesse Jackson Jr. manage to illegally accumulate so much stuff over a seven-year period? Finally brought to justice, Jackson summarized his scheme for the judge: "I used monies that should have been used for campaign purposes." Inside the scheme, it was a far more intricate operation to convert his campaign money into personal funds. Jackson didn´t do it alone. It wasn´t an informal arrangement. There was quite a cover up, constructed of lies and deceit. (Snip)"Keeping this enormous fraud and these cash gifts a secret, required Jesse Jackson Jr. to repeatedly lie to the federal

It´s the entitlement feeling these blacks coming from the "civil rights" political culture. They feel they are carrying the torch so they are deserving. Just like the Obama´s do with all their vacations and using Air Force One as their personal taxi while the nation suffers.

It usually works because it is racist for any prosecutor or investigative committee to pursue a black politician. Therefore, said politicians have to be really unusually corrupt or stupid to get caught. Fortunately many are.

Holder backs reduced sentences
for some drug traffickers
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 3/13/2014 12:13:09 PM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday endorsed a proposal that would result in shorter prison sentences for many nonviolent drug traffickers, saying the change would rein in runaway federal prison costs and create a fairer criminal justice system. Holder´s backing for a U.S. Sentencing Commission proposal to lower the guideline penalties is part of a broader Justice Department effort to lessen punishment for nonviolent drug dealers. He has been pressing to ease long mandatory sentences and has called for greater discretion for judges in sentencing. "This overreliance on incarceration is not just financially unsustainable, it comes with human and moral costs that

DES MOINES, Iowa – U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley has extended his lead over the Republican field in an open-seat U.S. Senate race. Braley has a double-digit lead — 12 to 15 percentage points — over most of the largely unknown GOP hopefuls for the seat of Sen. Tom Harkin, who is retiring after five terms, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released this morning.(Snip)At the time, Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll, attributed Braley’s showing to President Barack Obama’s unpopularity. Obama is still unpopular among Iowans, according to Quinnipiac. The president gets a negative 39 to 57 percent

The College Board´s March 5 announcement that the SAT college-admissions exam will undergo a significant overhaul in 2016 has generated no shortage of commentary, some of it praising the changes as a "democratization" of the test. The College Board says it is expanding its outreach to low-income students and shifting from testing abstract-reasoning skills to evidence-based reading, writing and mathematical skills acquired in high school. Ultimately, the exam will look a lot more like the ACT, which has been taking away the SAT´s market share in recent years. The goal, according to College Board President and CEO David Coleman, is to

A U.S. reconnaissance plane "thought it saw something like debris but it was a false alarm. It was not debris," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. (Snip) As multiple mysteries swirl around the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 and around some of its passengers, a growing multinational fleet of dozens of ships and planes is pursuing a potentially promising lead.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Military radar indicates that the missing Boeing 777 jet may have turned back before vanishing, Malaysia´s air force chief said Sunday as authorities were investigating up to four passengers with suspicious identifications.

Moscow - Russian stock markets Monday crashed almost 10 percent and the ruble plunged to historic lows in value against the dollar and euro, as alarm grew over the potentially disastrous economic consequences of military intervention in Ukraine. Russia´s central bank hiked its main interest rate in an emergency move to stem capital flight and the losses for the ruble, amid what risks becoming at least Russia´s worst economic crisis since 2009. (Snip) Economists warned the move risks creating a litany of further trouble for the Russian economy, which is already battling chronically slow growth.

St. Petersburg, Florida- In the first major ballot box test of 2014, the GOP won. Republican David Jolly edged out Democrat Alex Sink to win Tuesday´s special election in Florida´s 13th Congressional District. Jolly will fill out the term of his former boss, Republican Rep. Bill Young, who died in October. Young, first elected to Congress in 1970, was the longest-serving Republican in the House. With national Republicans framing the race as a referendum on Obamacare and a massive infusion of outside ad money to try to influence the outcome, pundits have looked to the Florida race as a bellwether

How would you feel if a police officer you knew for 20 years told you that if an order were issued to confiscate your guns, he wouldn’t hesitate to “kick your door in”? This was the precisely the experience Connecticut resident, Navy veteran and former firefighter John Cinque had after commenting on his state’s 2013 violation of the Second Amendment. The law in question criminalizes the sale of magazines holding more than 10 rounds and also certain semi-automatic rifles, and mandates that all grandfathered weapons and magazines must be registered with the state.

A report released Tuesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform asserted that ex-IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment rights. Lerner continues to stonewall California Rep. Darrell Issa’s committee, pleading the Fifth again in a divisive Oversight hearing last Wednesday convened to get to the bottom of the IRS’ improper targeting of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012. Oversight member Rep. Jim Jordan told The Daily Caller that the committee is “moving” toward holding Lerner in contempt of Congress to compel her to testify. “I think that’s where we’re moving,” Jordan said. “I think that’s where this is headed.”

WASHINGTON — President Obama this week will seek to force American businesses to pay more overtime to millions of workers, the latest move by his administration to confront corporations that have had soaring profits even as wages have stagnated. On Thursday, the president will direct the Labor Department to revamp its regulations to require overtime pay for several million additional fast-food managers, loan officers, computer technicians and others whom many businesses currently classify as “executive or professional” employees to avoid paying them overtime, according to White House officials briefed on the announcement.
