How Kwame Kilpatrick Went Bad
Daily Beast, by Jay Scott Smith

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/13/2013 5:59:02 AM

On one fateful night in Boston, two dynamic speakers made waves at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Both men, young, black, and products of hardscrabble Midwestern cities, were considered rising stars and were getting major exposure on one of the country’s biggest stages. One of those men was a first-term state senator from Illinois named Barack Obama. The other was the charismatic first-term mayor of Detroit: Kwame Kilpatrick. To say that the fortunes of those two men have gone in opposite directions is an understatement. Obama’s DNC speech, which followed Kilpatrick’s that night, helped propel him

The only difference between Obama and Kilpatrick was Obama was a lot slicker at keeping his fingerprints off criminality..Kilpatrick´s self greed and ghetto mentality did him in while Obama was more of a long term thinker.

Obama has made an art form out of plausible deniability.Kilpatrick was more enamored with the culture of bling and self help on reparations,just like Jackass jr.
Obama wanted a family image to make himself more acceptable to more people.

There´s no doubt that Obama greased the wheels for Solyndra but acts like he never heard of it and moves on.

Reading the comments after this article gives one the feeling a race war is in our future. Bush´s two unfunded wars, no WMD´s, Romney´s entitlements blah blah blah. Reminds me of during the OJ trial, my black friend and I were discussing it one time and she said something to the effect of ´I´ve not seen anything yet that would make me think he was guilty.´ The twain shall never meet.

At least, finally, some of the political blacks are having to pay for their thievery. Maybe Charles Rangel could be next.

2 of a kind.
The ONLY difference between the corrupt, deceitful, incompetent Kilpatrck and Obama is that Obama has the media in his pocket.
Being a black mayor of a black city...ho-hum.
Being a black POTUS, on the other hand, is a big thing and the media became Stinky´s cheerleaders and campaign supporters.

Kwame Kilpatrick has proven once again that "Pride goeth before the FALL". For now, obama has the power to "rule" and pillage a far greater number of the ignorant among us, and so far has not only gotten away with it, but been praised by the lap-dog-knee-pad-wearing "msm" in this country for getting over on "the man"....so far. If there is justice in this world, and I believe there is, obama´s future will follow the path of Kilpatrick and his "legacy" of disgrace will end up in the trash heap of history.

I know nothing about kilpatrick´s background. But obama´s masters since he was a child have been very good at creating the little monster. The grooming that started at a very early stage and proceeded throughout his life, and the chicago gang ushering him into the upper echelons of power is an amazing story. And his chosen companions were always the enemies of the USA. I´m sure kilpatrick was in it for the graft, obama wanted more than just graft (which I´m sure he is collecting as we speak)he wanted the destruction of the USA. And that was a huge difference.

No, Obama will never suffer for his corruption. He can never be impeached as he is protected by a lap dog press and a lockstep Democrat Senate. Both will forever find excuses even when they know his guilt.

Obama will eventually cripple out of office under a dark cloud into speaking fees of $200,000 a pop. My guess is he will then attempt to head the UN. His admirers will be no different than the useful idiots of the Third Reich; raising their arms in adoration.

Bath House Barry was up to his big ears in the same corruption that brought down first Rezko, then Blago. His house purchase was facilitated by Rezko himself. The prosecutor (Fitzgerald) somehow took a pizza cutter and cut Barry´s portion out of the dirty pie and set it aside. Amazin´ ain´t it!

Oscar Pistorius’ pathetic display

Give this retching, crying, sniveling, vomiting degenerate an Academy Award! I don’t know how much more I can take of Oscar Pistorius’ rubbish. A prosecutor on Wednesday ordered the athlete known as the “Blade Runner’’ for the carbon-fiber blades that replace his lower legs — which he’s not afraid to use as props to score pity — to “take responsibility’’ for slaughtering his beautiful girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day, 2013. He told Pistorius, 27, to look at a picture of the blood- and human-tissue-covered head of the model and TV personality, who died, like a caged animal, at age 29 inside

Rolling Stone´s Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Posted By: MissMolly- 4/10/2014 4:20:20 AM     Post Reply
Rolling Stone’s Constitution cover is in need of an amendment. The cover of the storied rock magazine’s latest issue features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with a faulty U.S. Constitution inked on her back. Just above her derriere sits the signature of one of the nation’s most prominent Founding Fathers, John Hancock. There’s only one problem, however: John Hancock didn’t sign the U.S. Constitution. Hancock, president of the Second Continental Congress, actually signed the Declaration of Independence. His autograph on that document is so stylish and large, in fact, that it inspired the use of his full name as a synonym for

RICHGROVE, Calif. — In March 2013, a man with brooding, mahogany eyes and a walrus mustache traveled from his home in California to visit relatives in Alabama. The trip did not end well. When a business acquaintance insulted Jose Manuel Martinez´s daughter, Martinez put two bullets in the man´s head, officials said. It was a matter "of family honor," Errek Jett, an Alabama prosecutor, said Wednesday. But it was not, it turned out, the first time he had killed — far from it, authorities believe. Martinez, 51, was charged Tuesday with killing nine men mostly in California´s Central Valley, part of a

A Southern California city declared the factory that produces Sriracha hot sauce a public nuisance Wednesday night, and gave its operators 90 days to make changes that stop the spicy odors that have prompted complaints from some residents. The Irwindale City Council´s action allows city officials to enter the factory and order changes if the odors persist after the 90-day deadline. The measure passed by a unanimous 4-0 vote. The decision came despite testimony by air-quality experts that progress was being made toward a resolution. The South Coast Air Quality Management District said its inspectors have taken air samples inside

During an interview as a part of an appearance at a marketing conference, the former secretary of state said: “I am thinking about it, but I am going to continue to think about it for a while. … The hard questions are not do you want to be president, or can you win. The hard questions are why. Why would you want to do this and what can you offer that could make a difference.” Clinton has said she is thinking

Barbara Walters is a broadcasting doyenne, interviewer of greats, shatterer of glass ceilings. But the daily screechfest of The View is not the best vehicle for her with which to say goodbye. The audience was still cheering reverently for Barbara Walters on Tuesday’s edition of The View, the day after her announcement that May 16 would mark her final day presenting the ABC morning show. Her hair its usual whipped and spun golden halo, Walters came out of the wings, gingerly high-fived some folk in the audience, before her fellow host Whoopi Goldberg reminded us of her momentous imminent farewell

GOP lawmakers believe over

Republicans are demanding greater transparency on how much the administration spent to promote and implement Obamacare — and hitting back at President Obama´s claim that he “didn´t make a hard sell.” The new effort comes after Obama´s claim that the administration met its goal of enrolling more than 7 million people without spending billions. “We didn´t make a hard sell,” Obama said. “We didn´t have billions of dollars to spend on commercials like our critics did.” But both Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill estimate the administration has spent roughly $4 to 5 billion to get the Affordable Care Act running, including hundreds

HHS Spending $800K on Studies to Help

Despite the Obama administration´s insistence that everyone -- the government, insurance companies, doctors, medical providers, and consumers -- will reap benefits from Obamacare, a recent grant proposal by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) suggests that the agency does have concerns about the ongoing financial viability of one player in the health care market: so-called family planning centers. HHS intends to spend up to $800,000 to fund studies to "conduct data analysis and related research and evaluation on the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Title X funded family planning centers."

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
