High-Ranking Dem Sens Gave Campaign
Cash to Menendez After Indictment

Washington Free Beacon, by Joe Schoffstall

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/12/2017 5:03:42 AM

A number of high-ranking Democratic senators combined to contribute tens of thousands of dollars to Sen. Robert Menendez´s (D., N.J.) campaign committee this year, a review of Federal Election Commission records shows. Menendez, who was indicted in April 2015, is currently facing 12 counts of corruption charges that include bribery. Prosecutors have said that the senator had a "corrupt pact" with Salomon Melgen, a wealthy Florida eye doctor, a previous donor to Menendez´s campaign. Menendez himself has contributed to the campaigns of a number of top Democratic senators this year from his leadership PAC, the New Millennium PAC, the Washington Free Beacon

Seems that after blocking our President, the second favorite pastime of the legislative branch is money laundering. Time to drain the swamp.

The headline in the Times of Trenton the other day said this trial is murky. Methinks old Bobby is pulling a Whitewater.

This is the difference between Democrats and Republicans. The Dem’s stick together and the Republicans would throw him under the bus.

John Conyers Is the Albatross
that Democrats Deserve
National Review Online, by Rich Lowry    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 11/29/2017 5:07:12     Post Reply
There are sexual harassers, and then there is John Conyers, the Democrat from Detroit who made his congressional office an adjunct of his libido. The evidence suggests that Conyers believed that as a 27-term congressman, he was entitled to the Washington, D.C., equivalent of the Ottoman imperial harem. He routinely hit on his female staffers, and his office was a den of sexual intrigue — allegedly featuring a jealous wife and a vindictive mistress — that properly belongs in a Bravo reality show if the network ever extends its franchise to Capitol Hill. A political party is rarely provided an

Victorious Trump moves to
reshape consumer bureau

Hot off a legal victory handing him control of the government’s top consumer watchdog, President Donald Trump is moving rapidly to nominate a permanent director to rein in the agency’s reach. A U.S. District Court judge in Washington on Tuesday said the administration had the right to install White House budget director Mick Mulvaney as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Judge Timothy Kelly denied a request by CFPB Deputy Director Leandra English, who also claims to hold the top job, to block Mulvaney from taking the post. Her lawyer said the case isn’t over. For now, the ruling puts

Why Nancy Pelosi gave a big boost to Roy Moore

If accused child molestor Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate seat in two weeks, he may have reason to offer thanks to the most important Democrat in Washington — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. On Sunday’s “Meet the Press” she responded haughtily to the idea that she and her fellow Democrats should cut Rep. John Conyers loose after learning he’d paid off a staffer who accused him of sexual harassment — a story that blew the lid off the existence of a congressional slush fund to settle harassment claims. She cast doubt on the credibility of the accuser and three women who




North Korea might be able to knock out

North Korea’s launch Wednesday (Tuesday in the U.S.) of an intercontinental ballistic missile should focus our attention on the threat of the rogue nation launching an electromagnetic pulse attack that could wipe out the electric power grid serving millions of people in the U.S. and Canada. Such an attack has been downplayed by some and made the subject of fear-mongering by others over the years. But while it sounds like the plot of a science fiction movie, an electromagnetic pulse attack has become a larger issue in the past few months due to North Korea’s missile tests and stated goal

Authorities in Tampa, Fla., said Tuesday that they have arrested a man who will face murder charges in connection with four killings that sent chills through the Seminole Heights community and sparked fears of a serial killer. Howell Donaldson III was arrested at a McDonald´s restaurant in Ybor City, based on a tip given to Tampa police, Tampa´s FOX 13 reported. He will face murder charges in connection with all four killings, Stephen Hegarty, the Tampa Police Department’s public safety information coordinator, told Fox News. Police believe Donaldson acted alone, Hegarty said. Residents in working-class Seminole Heights have been on edge

WASHINGTON — More than 2,000 conservatives in tuxedos and gowns recently filled Union Station’s main hall for a steak dinner and the chance to cheer the man who saved the Supreme Court from liberal control. Justice Neil Gorsuch didn’t disappoint them, just as he hasn’t in his first seven months on the Supreme Court. “Tonight I can report that a person can be both a publicly committed originalist and textualist and be confirmed to the Supreme Court,” Gorsuch said to sustained applause from members of the Federalist Society, using terms by which conservatives often seek to distinguish themselves from more liberal

President Donald Trump is likely to control the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau for years to come. And Democrats have only themselves to blame. Trump Budget Director Mick Mulvaney and Leandra English, a legacy employee of the Obama presidency, faced off on Monday over which of them has the authority to lead the bureau amid dueling statutes after CFPB Director Richard Cordray abruptly stepped down on Friday. Mulvaney and English showed up for work and started directing employees, both attempting to use the wide-ranging power that Democrats granted the director when the agency was created in 2010. The matter ended up in the courtroom

What Congressmen Are Hiding
New York Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 11/28/2017 4:59:37     Post Reply
As charges of sexual harassment and assault swept from Hollywood to Washington, Congress has faced questions about how it addresses such claims. The answer: terribly. For two decades, taxpayers have been underwriting secret payments to people who accuse lawmakers of sexual misconduct under a 1995 law called, paradoxically, the Congressional Accountability Act. The legislation applied to Congress many laws on workplace safety, employment and civil rights from which it had been exempt. In the process, it established an account to pay settlements, which prevented lawmakers from being personally liable, and created an Office of Compliance that kept charges and payments secret.

Africans are being sold at Libyan slave

USA Today, by Glenn Harlan Reynolds    Original Article

Black Africans are being sold in open-air slave markets, and it’s Hillary Clinton’s fault. But you won’t hear much about that from the news media or the foreign-policy pundits, so let me explain. Footage from Libya, released recently by CNN, showed young men from sub-Saharan Africa being auctioned off as farm workers in slave markets. And how did we get to this point? As the BBC reported back in May, “Libya has been beset by chaos since NATO-backed forces overthrew long-serving ruler Col. Moammar Gadhafi in October 2011.” And who was behind that overthrow? None other than then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Under

John Conyers Is the Furthest Thing From an ´Icon´

John Conyers is not an "icon," as Nancy Pelosi would have it, or would pretend to have it anyway, unless you mean an icon for everything that went wrong with the civil rights movement. He´s also an icon for identity politics (a favorite of despots globally), grievance culture and economic decline (Detroit). Oh, and there are the little matters of sexual assault and governmental corruption. Finally, he´s an icon for rape -- in this instance, of the American taxpayer. Am I being harsh on poor John at 88? Unfortunately, not much. How about your money paying -- in secret -- for his sexual (to

Hillary Clinton used a conference in Beijing to blast both President Trump and the Chinese over their stance toward North Korea — saying it needs to soften up soon before things get out of hand and nuclear war breaks out. Serving as the keynote speaker at Caijing Magazine’s three-day annual conference on Tuesday, the former secretary of state called on Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping to avoid “bluster” and “personal taunts” when dealing with Pyongyang, according to Bloomberg. She reportedly criticized the Trump administration for retreating from diplomacy in recent months and said she hoped that China wouldn’t follow suit. While Clinton

I spent nearly seven years in a Chinese prison for being a leader of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. I was freed in 1998, and the Chinese government let me leave the country. I chose to go to the United States, where I could freely speak my mind without fear of being thrown in prison. I earned a doctorate in history in 2009 and took a teaching position in Taiwan. I taught contemporary Chinese history and led a weekly seminar — a “China salon” — of open discussions about Chinese society and politics. Many of the seminar topics, like the 1989

"But I don’t think he has the fundamental underpinnings of principles and beliefs,” he said. He added: “I don’t think there was any doubt about his views toward

John Conyers (D-MI), and has apparently known about this "for years." Conyers has been accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment and has stepped down from the House Judiciary Committee. Despite the allegations against him, major players in the Democratic Party have defended Conyers and will not say that he should resign. Pelosi even referred to the embattled congressman as an "icon." Roberts was discussing the current culture on Capitol Hill with Martha Raddatz and Anna

James O’Keefe is a celebrated right-wing pseudo-journalist whose job consists largely of attempting to prove various conservative conspiracy theories but, instead, accidentally disproving them. O’Keefe’s most recent fail is an attempt to help alleged child molester Roy Moore by tarnishing the Washington Post. O’Keefe recruited a fake source, who attempted to lure the Post into reporting her false accusations and “admitting” on camera that their reporting would affect the outcome of the election. The scam collapsed for a number of reasons. His fake source provided a flimsy cover story with odd details — she claimed to have only spent a
