US Rep. Conyers loses appeal
to get on ballot

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/23/2014 12:49:02 PM

DETROIT— U.S. Rep. John Conyers, No. 2 in seniority in the House of Representatives, lost his appeal Friday to get on the August primary ballot after Michigan election officials found problems with the Democrat´s nominating petitions. The Secretary of State´s office affirmed a decision by Detroit-area election officials to keep Conyers off the ballot. It would end his 50-year career in Congress unless courts intervene or he runs a successful write-in campaign. A federal judge is expected to rule later Friday on Conyers´ request to throw out a Michigan election law as unconstitutional. Conyers, 85, had appealed to the state

John and Marcia Conyers used his congressional staffers as personal servants and nothing happened to them.
Marcia, as president of the Detroit city council. sold her votes. She went to federal prison. Nothing happened to John, even though he and Marcia filed joint tax returns.
I expect a federal judge to put John back on the ticket.
This is simply a form of reparations for slavery.
Ditto for Rangel, Charlie, and the rest of the black caucus.

The message here is that for now, the system works. However, how does a black dRATS congressman get fifty years to lay havoc when his party controls the House & presidency? This should be a lead discussion among the Tea Party as they slowly try to take back our Congress and Country. In short, term limits. If the president is limited to eight years, why aren´t the House and Senate members limited as well? There is plenty of room within the Beltway, especially among lobbyist (which also need to be placed in check) for them to "serve" with their absorbent golden parachutes at our tax dollar expense.

BTW, there is nothing racist or bigoted about a person (me), who sees that literally because of the color of a person´s skin, they are programmed to do only as they are told by their party, not the will of the people that elected them or the complete good of our country. These are not African-American, but rather "American-Plantation." They are just too cowardly, like 0bama to go back home to Africa and join in the struggle to free those they claim to be aligned with in name. As a visible Hispanic, I assimilated and an American, but because of this, am ignored and openly dismissed by blacks and other minorities. So, who´s harboring the "prejudice" hate?

I expect the federal judge will put him on the ballot; laws are for the little people. But who really knows?

A Conyers win in federal court would be a two-fer:
(1) It would help a loyal Democrat - they are entitled to win.
(2) It would again remind the states that states rights don´t exist.

This would be a huge dose of poetic justice should Conyers´ career end with a whimper rather than a bang because he could not get something as simple as the petitions right. Also a reminder that incumbency does not equate to ownership.

The only way he wins a write in candidacy is if changes his name to "X". Most of his voters vote on any line that has "D". They can´t read Conyers or write it for that matter. They are the majority of Lo info voters.

President Obama looked to curry favor with his traveling press corps on Thursday, offering to treat reporters to an ice cream cone during a stop at a Minnesota dessert parlor. "Press, you guys want some? On me. No? Is that unethical?” Obama asked reporters who accompanied him to the Grand Ole Creamery, a Twin Cities chain. “I’m trying to soften you up.” Obama told employees of the shop that one of his first jobs was scooping ice cream at Baskin Robbins — eliciting a groan from the workers at the rival parlor. “No, the point is that my first job

When you step foot into the control room at the U.S. Border Patrol station in McAllen, Texas, the first thing that hits you is the smell. (Photo) Hovering somewhere between urine and unwashed humanity, the air is thick and hot. The sound inside the circular, glass-enclosed control room is like that of a beehive, humming with the noise of hundreds of voices mixed with buzzers and footsteps. “This is where we do the processing,” the border patrol agent tells us. The border patrol officer gestures to a series of white, cinderblock rooms that form a ring around the enclosed control

MINNEAPOLIS — President Barack Obama pledged the federal government´s help Thursday in recovery after massive flooding hit many parts of Minnesota this month, telling a town hall audience near the roaring Minnehaha Falls that they´ll have a strong partner when they know how severe the damage is. Obama said he was briefed by Gov. Mark Dayton on high waters that have swamped farm fields, washed out roads and flooded towns and homes in the past week.

Ordinarily, President Obama’s days are planned out to the smallest detail. But for his two-day excursion to Minnesota this week, the president boasted that he’s got little in the way of a formal agenda, has few firm plans, and warned Secret Service that he’s feeling “super loose” and could end up doing any number of things. “I don’t know. I’m just going to make it up as I go along,” Mr. Obama said during a town-hall meeting at Minneapolis’ Minnehaha Park, one of the few planned activities during his two-day stay in the Twin Cities. “I’m like a caged bear,

The Obama administration asked Congress Thursday to authorize direct U.S. military training and equipment for Syrian opposition fighters, a move that could significantly escalate U.S. involvement in Syria’s civil war. Money for the program would total $500 million and would expand a current CIA covert training program. It is included in a $60 billion request for Overseas Contingency Operations, or OCO, added to the fiscal year 2015 Defense Department budget. Details of the OCO budget had been withheld from the budget request that Congress has been considering. The administration has said repeatedly in recent weeks that it was

President Obama’s team suffered their twelfth unanimous defeat at the Supreme Court in the legal challenge to the so-called recess appointments made when Congress was not actually in recess, a string of defeats that only represents “the tip of the iceberg,” according to Senator Mike Lee (R., Utah). “Not every case in which the president has exceeded his authority has made it all the way to the Supreme Court,” Lee, a former law clerk to Justice Samuel Alito, told National Review Online. “The fact that his track record is as bad as it is in the Supreme Court . . . is yet another indication of the fact that we’ve got a president who is playing fast

In a game marred by rain and a soggy turf, the U.S. stayed close enough to the world’s No. 2 team to finish second in its group, allowing it to advance to meet the winner of Group H in the knockout round at 3 p.m. (Chicago time) Tuesday in Salvador. The final Group H standings were to be determined in Thursday’s late games between South Korea and Belgium and Algeria and Russia.

When will Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer retire? It’s a question that has surfaced as the Supreme Court term has come to an end in recent years. But anticipation about the future plans of Ginsburg and Breyer has taken on a new sense of urgency in some liberal legal circles, with Democrats locked in a bitter struggle with Republicans to keep control of the Senate in the fall midterm elections. The discussion is a delicate one, out of deference to the justices, but several lawyers say it’s quietly echoing from the White House to Congress and

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is currently claiming that seven different IRS officials experienced computer crashes that erased their emails and made it impossible for the IRS to cooperate with congressional investigations into the IRS targeting matter. The wave of computer crashes apparently struck both Washington, D.C. — where Lois Lerner oversaw the agency’s Exempt Organizations division — and also Cincinnati, Ohio — where agents processed tax-exempt applications. The Federal Records Act requires IRS employees to save all of their emails pertaining to agency business and to also print those emails out in case they have a computer crash. IRS

Top State Department and Defense Department officials joined senators Tuesday evening for a briefing on the quickly developing chaos in Iraq and future U.S. plans for a response.

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

President Obama is now reaching terminal velocity, like a skydiver plunging toward earth. Except he doesn’t have a parachute. There’s a mighty splat coming soon. With his approval rating at 40 percent, down 6 points from early June, and just 29 percent of Americans convinced the country is on the “right track,” the president is doubling down on his strategy of blaming Republicans for his failures. And he’s shifting into hyperpartisan drive, traveling the country to campaign for Democrats, many of whom wish he’d just stay away. Worse, the news just keeps getting well, worse: The Veterans Affairs scandal is blazing, with

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives. Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?) In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and

Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago. Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn’t want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night’s primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents. And Democrats are increasingly realizing that President Obama’s approval rating will probably remain mired at 45 percent or lower until

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.

It was the elephant on the back of the elephant in the middle of the room. In a recent interview with Rusty Humphries, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio made news by saying that the Obama administration was “incompetent” and that its current dumping of illegals in Arizona is intentional. Yet perhaps even more shocking was a 45-second segment of the interview that has received scant attention: A claim by Arpaio that he’s close to discovering who forged Barack Obama’s birth certificate.

Given the bitter nature of the runoff in Mississippi, this probably surprises no one, but it’s also unlikely to produce any further surprises. After a narrow loss to incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, Chris McDaniel refused to concede last night. Instead, he blasted Cochran’s GOTV strategy and promised a challenge to the results: State Sen. Chris McDaniel will challenge the results of the Tuesday runoff election where 41-year incumbent Sen.
