Title: Dirtbag Scoreboard
Post by: Muddylaces on February 09, 2011, 07:44:44 PM
I want to keep a scoreboard Democrats v Republicans starting today.  To be eligible they must be a congressman, senator, president or a member of the presidents cabinet.  Supreme Court  judge's party will reflected by the president who nominated them.
 
Democrats 1 Republicans 0

Rep. Christopher Lee (R)

Lee's an R; how come the scoreboard doesn't reflect that?  Or am I missing something?

A republican dirtbag is a score for the democrats.   Higher score is better.

The difference between the parties is that Rep. Lee was immediately drummed out of his job by the Republicans. If he were a democrat, he would be celebrated by his peers.

That's a good point.   I think I will add to the scoring system.  If you cheat and get caught, 1 point is awarded.

If you deny and get caught in the denial, that's another point.

If you try to keep your post, that's another point.


In other words, if you run a gay brothel out of your home, deny it, and not go way, that's three point to the republicans...ahhh I mean the other team.

I think having a child, you then deny, outside the marriage while continuing to seek or keep office should count as 3 points, so add 2 for the Dems (Arnold) and 3 for the GOP (Edwards).

but...discovery or dastardly deed? he counts Arnold. that was 10-11 years ago. then led the recall in CA and served 2 terms. I think he should get 3 points.

If Arnie got caught in office and denied then I'd agree.   But in this case...just 1.   Edwards probably would be worth 5 points for hiding in the men's room in the hotel, but it was before I started the scoreboard.

Again, you're missing the joke.  We don't know he was messing around on his wife.  At worst we know he took a picture of his drawers and posted them on the web (he certainly could've done more than that and it hasn't come out yet, but that's the worst we know).  It makes him a pervert, not a cheater.  At best he's a victim of a hacker.

 Self inflicted even if were talking about Wiener or Ahnold is still self inflicted. Ahnold did it to himself and so did Weiner. I brought in Ahnold bas a comparison for getting bad points and it being self inflicted.

 Here's his latest in defending himself.

that's not just the latest.  that's what he's always said happened.

Maybe this will make you feel better: if it turns out he was cheating and he's lying to cover it up you will get two points, one for the cheating and one for the cover up.

 I never said he was cheating for one but he's starting to look like a perv so he still gets points.Had he turned the case over to the FBI I would say that he's innocent and should not be given points but he won't instead he lawyer-ed up.

Arnold can earn no more points.   
Edwards ineligible as he is no longer a candidate
Weiner----TBD.


Title: Re: Dirtbag Scoreboard
Post by: Muddylaces on June 01, 2011, 09:28:06 AM
Democrats =3
Republicans =0

Score pending  Here's the potential scoring:

If Weiner sent the picture.   1 point
He's denied it.   1 point
If he does not resign 1 point.

Now if he was not married I'd say poor judgement, but zero points.

 FWIW it was reported last night on one of the waste of time shows on fox that Lee was told to pack up and get out of DC by Boehner. The reason it took such a short time was that Lee had just gotten to town and screwed up in short order so he wasn't given and choice to defend his actions.

 There was just a Dem on the Lou Dobbs show that said the N.Y. has lost two congressional seats and there is talk that one would be in northern N.Y. and one in the southern district and he believed that Weiner just became the most likely candidate to be redistricted out and nobody would care.
 Just a talking head nobody in power.


Title: Re: Dirtbag Scoreboard
Post by: seavey on June 08, 2011, 01:04:26 PM
What if they apply the same pressure that the other side did to John Ensign ?
Oh, wait
Quote
“I think he will be welcomed back by his colleagues and go back to being a good senator,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who said Ensign shouldn’t have resigned his leadership spot.


Graham downplayed the political impact this would have on the GOP, saying, “Most Americans look at this as a personal situation.”


Graham let out a laugh and said: “I’ve got plenty of sins that I’m not going to share with anyone else.”


“There are a lot of senators and staff who feel a lot of sympathy for Sen. Ensign, who is obviously confronting an incredibly difficult time,” a senior GOP aide said.


But another aide said: “One thing is for sure: He cannot go any further in Senate leadership, or higher in electoral politics, now.”


Still, the rhetoric is softer than what was espoused in 2007, when Ensign and others pushed Craig to step down after he was charged with soliciting sex in a Minneapolis airport bathroom.


“He’s apologized to his constituents and his colleagues and acknowledged a grave error,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said of Ensign. Asked if he should resign his seat altogether, Cornyn said: “No.”


“John has to make his own personal decision relative to his family as well as the political side of this,” Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said of Ensign. “He’s got to get his personal life in order, and that comes first.”


Chambliss said Ensign shouldn’t resign.

There is something strange about the whole "it's ok to act like an rear end as long as you resign when you get caught" mentality. (or maybe the "it's better to resign than not resign, but it's still not ok" mentality).

It's not like the people involved didn't know they were doing those things before they got caught, so if their actions make them unfit for office why did they pursue public office in the first place, or why didn't they resign when the bad behavior started and before they got caught?

It's not just strange, it's a symptom of the thorough debasement of the culture and common morals, so I agree.  It's not only not okay, resignation is not atonement; they all deserve a swift kick in their consciences.

 The thing lacking in these people is shame. They're just shamless b/c if he had any he would not show his face in public.His wife on the other hand at least has enough pride not to be seen with this horses rear end. She's gone so far as to be on her way to Africa with Hillery.

 The worst of it for me is that any politician is either kept in office or wants to be in office even after the,the taking responsibility tour(which takes nothing)and that goes for this rear end and Gingritch too and any other name you would care to add.

 And worse than them are the people that defend this kind of behavior and would actually vote for them.

Interesting commentary on the meaning of all the dirtbags on both sides of the aisle.

http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/once-again-weiner-proves-size-matters/ (http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/once-again-weiner-proves-size-matters/)

Once Again, Weiner Proves, Size Matters
Conservatives should thank him for making the case for smaller government.
by Scott Ott

Constitutional Conservatives should sit down this day and write a “thank you” letter to Rep. Anthony Weiner (NY-9th) for proving, once again, that size matters.

Rep. Weiner, through his scandalous, adulterous, perverted, deceptive, and slanderous behavior, dramatized the wisdom of the Constitutional doctrines of enumerated powers and checks and balances more effectively than any think-tank white paper, talk show rant, or polemical essay could do.

Like the prophet Isaiah, walking about naked to foreshadow the coming exile of the Egyptians and the folly of Israel’s trust in her opportunistic ally, Rep. Weiner’s self-disclosure has graphically illustrated the need for smaller, limited government.

However, while Rep. Weiner should become a poster-child for the battle against large, centralized, unaccountable, bureaucratic government, he must not become an isolated exception. He’s not a freak. He’s the norm.

You see, the great risk to the Right in the midst of this sumptuous feast of Schadenfreude is that we would see it merely as Weiner’s problem, or as simply indicative of the moral vacuity of the Democrats or of the Left. It’s much more important than that. Weiner has a handicap that is shared by every lawmaker, and every voter.

Weiner is not an aberration. He typifies Congress, because he is human. And for that reason, we must move rapidly to restrain his ilk from the dangers posed by their restless, reckless, covert humanity … and by ours.

There’s nothing like a Constitutional Convention to convince men of the need to check the power of government, and to strictly limit its scope. When 55 men from 12 states migrated to Philadelphia in the summer of 1787, they came face-to-face with the major problem of governance — how to protect the governed from their governors, and from themselves. How can one craft an energetic national government without trampling the sovereignty of the states or the rights of the people? How does one create an elected legislature that would resist the wild sweep of popular passions — the prime danger of democracy?

He should have just stuck to his tiger suit.

"In January this year, seven staffers resigned because of behavior that included sending a photo of himself in a tiger costume to a staff member and an angry public speech. Wu attributed those to a period of mental health challenges that began in 2008 as marital issues led to separation from his wife."

A politician who emailed a woman nude photos of himself that were posted on a GOP activist's website has resigned and said he will consider all legal options to have the pictures taken down.
New Jersey democrat Louis Magazzu, 53, admitted sending the photos to the woman he said he had been corresponding with online for several years.
He claims she requested the pictures but was working with an 'avowed political enemy' at the time and that he did not know.
In an email statement, the Cumberland County freeholder apologised to family, friends and constituents but indicated that he thought he was being set up.
He said he's been separated from his wife for about two years.
The pictures appear to show Magazzu standing naked in front of a mirror photographing himself.

Emails shared with The Indianapolis Star suggest that state Rep. Phillip Hinkle -- responding to a local posting on Craigslist -- offered a young man $80 plus tip to spend time with him Saturday night at the JW Marriott hotel.

The emails, sent from Hinkle's publicly listed personal address, ask the young man for "a couple hours of your time tonight" and offer him cash up front, with a tip of up to $50 or $60 "for a really good time."

The email exchange is in response to the Craigslist posting in which the young man -- who lists his age as 20 in the ad but says he is 18 years old -- says, "I need a sugga daddy."

2 for 1 GOP Corruption in PA!

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Convicted Pennsylvania state Sen. Jane Orie stepped down from her seat Monday, a few days after her state Supreme Court justice sister was charged with similar allegations she used taxpayer-funded staff for campaigns.

The Allegheny County Republican submitted her resignation in a letter to Senate President Joe Scarnati dated Friday , the same day Justice Joan Orie Melvin was charged with using her Superior Court staff for campaign work during two bids for a seat on the high court.

"It has been an honor and a privilege for me to have served in the Senate of Pennsylvania," Jane Orie wrote in the two-sentence letter announcing her resignation, which became effective Monday.

Illinois Senator Mark Kirk (R) has been accused by his ex-wife, Kimberly Vertolli, of breaking campaign finance laws for not fully disclosing payments of more than $143,000 to his then-live-in girlfriend and campaign aide, Dodie McCracken.

But wait! It gets weirder. Vertolli herself was hired as a lawyer for the Kirk campaign and paid $40,000.

So — Kirk hired his ex-wife to work alongside his current girlfriend? What could possibly go wrong?

NC lawmaker charged with stealing from federal loan program

Raleigh, N.C. — A federal grand jury on Tuesday indicted state Rep. Stephen LaRoque on charges that he misappropriated federal funding from nonprofits that he runs.

LaRoque, R-Lenoir, is charged with four counts of converting U.S. Department of Agriculture loans to East Carolina Development Co. to his own use and four counts of laundering money by using federal funds to purchase an interest in a Greenville ice rink and a house that he then rented to one of his stepdaughters.

Ark. lawmaker pleads guilty to election charge

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A Democratic state legislator from east Arkansas, his father and two campaign workers pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to commit election fraud after federal prosecutors said they bribed absentee voters and destroyed ballots in a special election last year.

Prosecutors said Democratic Rep. Hudson Hallum of Marion, Kent Hallum, Phillip Wayne Carter and Sam Malone acknowledged that they participated in a conspiracy to bribe voters to influence absentee votes in the Arkansas District 54 primary, runoff and general elections in 2011. The three were released pending a sentencing hearing.

Ex-Florida GOP leader Jim Greer pleads guilty to grand theft
ORLANDO --

Former Republican Party of Florida chairman Jim Greer pleaded guilty to theft and money laundering charges Monday just before jury selection in his criminal trial was to begin.

Greer pleaded guilty to four counts of theft and a single count of money laundering for funneling money from the Republican Party of Florida to a company he set up with his right-hand man. He could be sentenced to a minimum of 3½ years and a maximum of 35 years in prison at his March 27 sentencing.

Stephen LaRoque
RALEIGH — A former Tar Heel lawmaker who resigned in July after being federally indicted for theft and money laundering is facing additional charges, according to the Associated Press.

Former Rep. Stephen LaRoque of Kinston is now accused of filing false tax returns for 2009 and 2010. Prosecutors say in addition to channeling some $300,000 to a company he owned as a way to help family members, he also worked out a scheme to further benefit personally from a federal loan program that was designed to assist small businesses in rural areas.

“I am not going to say there is not some instance that could be characterized one way or the other,” said Hartsell, whose law practice includes a focus on governmental law. “Most of these things that I do are sort of a blended issue. I do the best job I can to keep up with it.”

Former Va. Gov. McDonnell, wife indicted on federal corruption charges

Former Virginia Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell and wife Maureen were indicted Tuesday on federal corruption charges for allegedly accepting gifts, vacations and loans from a businessman seeking special treatment from the state for his fledgling business.

The 14-count indictment includes charges of conspiracy, wire fraud and false statements in connection with the McDonnells’ relationship to Jonnie R. Williams Sr., chief executive of nutritional supplements maker Star Scientific Inc.

The couple will be arraigned Friday morning.

Following announcement of the indictment, McDonnell called the allegations “false” and said he “deeply” regretted accepting “legal” gifts and loans and that he takes “full responsibility” for his poor judgment.

“However, I repeat emphatically that I did nothing illegal for Mr. Williams in exchange for what I believed was his personal generosity and friendship,” McDonnell said in a statement.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was convicted Wednesday on charges that he accepted bribes, free trips and other gratuities from contractors in exchange for helping them secure millions of dollars in city work while he was in office, including right after Hurricane Katrina.

The federal jury found Nagin guilty of 20 of 21 counts against him. He sat quietly at the defense table after the verdict was read and his wife, Seletha, was being consoled in the front row.

Before the verdict, the 57-year-old Ray Nagin said outside the New Orleans courtroom: "I've been at peace with this for a long time. I'm good."

The Democrat, who left office in 2010 after eight years, was indicted in January 2013 on charges he accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and truckloads of free granite for his family business in exchange for promoting the interests of local businessman Frank Fradella.

He also was charged with accepting thousands of dollars in in payoffs from another businessman, Rodney Williams, for his help in securing city contracts.

Guess we can go for pending qualifier watch list?


I don't know for sure because I didn't follow the case, but my suspicion is he got involved in a business that he was overly excited about and it went bad. 

IMO if he made a profit on it then it is bad.   But I think he lost personal money in the deal too.

I lost a crapload on Genron.   The CEO said they were going to cure paralysis...saw it right on "60 minutes".   They grew a human ear on a mouse.   I saw it.   Anyone got the the number for a good lawyer for me?

Anyway....he's not qualified because he in not an elected official.

I have a hard time calling anyone who has adopted kids with medical issues from China a dirtbag.  Also I think many of the mom's with high risk deliveries would quarrel with the dirtbag term for him.

Score should be even now... little reported (no surprise as the media is not impartial)

Senator Harry Reid (D) has skated under the radar and gave his granddaughter  $16,000  in campaign cash to give out as gifts. As long as he has been in office he should have known this was an illegal procedure. He is now forced to pay it back as it was but no one is stepping up to call him on this.

<Last Friday, it was the speaker of the Rhode Island House of Representatives, Gordon Fox, who is (technically) black and who is definitely gay. Astonishingly, given the open racial-preference policies of the Obama regime, Fox’s Providence home and his State House offices were raided Friday by the FBI. He resigned Saturday. We still don’t know what the G-men have on him.

Next, the mayor of Charlotte, Patrick Cannon, another Democrat. He allegedly accepted $48,000 in bribes, some of which he took at the same Capitol Grill where payoffs were earlier accepted by jailbird ex-Speaker Jim Black. Black is not to be confused with ex-Speaker Jimmy Green, who likewise went to prison, for torching his tobacco burns.

Then there’s state Sen. Leland Yee of San Francisco. He used to go on Piers Morgan’s now-canceled CNN moonbat-fest and denounce the Second Amendment. He sent out tweets on the first anniversary of the Newtown massacre saying, “I’m still shocked & prepared to take steps to stop gun violence.”

Well, up to a point …

He, too, was arrested on Wednesday, for allegedly arranging deals to procure M16s and rocket launchers to be smuggled into California after being purchased from Muslim terrorists in the Philippines. Sen. Yee was working with a Chinese gangster named “Shrimp Boy.”

Apparently, Yee was much less concerned about the spread of weapons of mass destruction when he was talking to his fellow hoods than when he was pontificating on CNN: “People want to get whatever they want to get. Do I care? No, I don’t care. People need certain things.”

Like, rocket launchers.

Two-gun Yee is the third Democrat state senator to be arrested in California this week. Earlier it was state Sen. Rod Wright (perjury) and then Ron Calderon (bribery).

What a crime wave, in less than one week. So guess what most of the networks led with on their newscasts last night? The 5-month-old story of Gov. Chris Christie’s Bridgegate. Because it has one thing going for it that none of these other stories had, the only thing that matters to the corrupt American media.

This one deserves "honorable" mention even if she doesn't qualify:

Dem NYC councilwoman’s ‘trusted’ campaign staff indicted on counts of fraud, forgery

Three campaign workers for Democrat New York City Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo were arrested Tuesday and charged with falsifying business records, forgery and offering a false instrument for filing, the New York Daily News reported.

Some things never change, and corruption in the Big Apple appears to be one of them.

The three workers were paid a dollar for each signature they collected last summer on Arroyo’s re-election petitions. When staffers for Arroyo’s opponent, Julio Pabon, noticed signatures from celebrities like Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter and model Kate Moss, authorities launched an investigation

Insisting that she and her mother, New York City Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo, were the first to spot the forgeries, Arroyo told Board of Elections officials at a July hearing that she felt all she could be guilty of was “trusting people too much,” the Daily News reported.

Do you even read the articles you post? If so you are typing lies you know are lies

Rep. Steve Scalise may have just ineptly admitted to speaking at a white supremacist event that eyewitnesses say he never attended. Two event attendees say it’s factually inaccurate to characterize Scalise’s comments as directed at the supremacist gathering—even though Scalise’s own office has said the House majority whip spoke to the group 12 years ago.

Who to believe, the racists or the guy who thinks he spoke to them?

You're trying too hard.

I find it enormously amusing that you would hang your hat on a single meeting which may or may not have even occurred over 12 years ago. Are you so eager to put points up on the board?

And from what I read of this guy he doesn't sound like anyone I care to invest very much time in defending....but I will defend principle.

1. The man has been around for a while so if he had ties to racist or supremacist groups they would have been revealed.

2. There is nothing but conjecture as to whether or not he even attended this alleged event.

3. Even if it had happened, and one could "prove" that it took place under the worst-case scenario there is nothing illegal or immoral with speaking to racists.

But I find this to be exquisite: "BTW....It doesn't need to be criminal to be on the Dirtbag scoreboard." Here all this time I was thinking that it had to be members of congress or federal government that were indicted and convicted of crimes. This new revelation opens the doors widely.

In that case I nominate the following known and notorious racists and scumbags:

barack obama
eric holder
al sharpton
jesse jackson
charlie rangel
john conyers
elijah cummings
keith ellison
sheila jackson lee
frederica wilson

You got the facts exactly backwards, my leftist friend. It would have helped had you actually read the article. Then you would be aware that the civic group met first and in the morning. The racist group did not start until afternoon.  The meeting he spoke at included a representative from the Red Cross and another from the Sheriff's department. The state representative was not on the agenda of the second group and was unaware that they would be meeting there later. I would guess that the Red Cross and the Sheriff were not on the agenda either.

Give this honest consideration, Clyde: If you went to a restaurant in the morning, ate, paid and left, and later that afternoon after you left a man comes in, sits at exactly the same table you did, and robs and shoots his waitress, should you be held accountable for the murder? Obviously it is absurd, but by the logic you have shown so far, the answer would be yes, give Clyde the chair! That would be equally unjust. Even a leftist organization like Slate can see the truth here.

The big difference is that I can easily say that Dems are stupid and elect convicted crooks, just like the GOP.

BTW, I wonder where the score stands after all the huffing and puffing early on?

Ex-Virginia Gov. McDonnell sentenced to 2 years in prison for corruption


Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell was sentenced Tuesday to two years in federal prison for taking bribes to promote a dietary supplement.

The punishment was far below the 10 years prosecutors initially wanted, but still more than the community service the former Republican governor, his defense team and hundreds of supporters argued for.

In a strong but somber voice, McDonnell told the judge before sentencing that he was "a heartbroken and humbled man" and that he holds himself accountable.

"I allowed my life to get way out of balance," he said.

Some family members and friends wept softly as McDonnell addressed U.S. District Judge James Spencer. For a few, the tears turned to smiles when the judge announced the sentence. McDonnell was stoic.

McDonnell and his legal team immediately denounced the charges and said prosecutors overstepped their authority. In an unprecedented televised public appearance Tuesday night, McDonnell said, “ I come before you this evening as someone who has been falsely and wrongfully accused and whose public service has been wrongfully attacked.”

He went on to insist, “I repeat again, emphatically, that I did nothing illegal for Mr. Williams.”

I believe Bob would actually be at least 2 points, based upon his above denial.

Wait, I though they had to be convicted of a crime for it to count as points here? There are quite a few folks on both sides not on the list that have been unfaithful.

In other news:

Greenville, N.C. — After fighting federal charges for more than two years, former state Rep. Stephen LaRoque quietly pleaded guilty Monday as part of a deal to get the rest of the case against him dismissed. The Kinston Republican pleaded guilty in Greenville to aiding and abetting theft concerning programs receiving federal funds. He will be sentenced May 12, when he faces up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Federal prosecutors said LaRoque took $150,000 from a U.S. Department of Agriculture-funded nonprofit. A 2012 indictment alleged that he directed the money to friends and family and might have used some for campaign expenses.

Former Gov. Rowland sentenced to 30 months, fined $35,000

NEW HAVEN — Former Governor John Rowland was sentenced to 30 months in prison in New Haven Federal Court Wednesday afternoon.

Rowland was sentenced to prison on four felony counts and three years supervised release upon completion of prison term. In addition, he will be fined $35,000.

Rowland will be permitted to voluntarily surrender, if his appeal is denied. He is scheduled to report by noon on June 16. However, his team is filing an appeal immediately.

During his last sentencing, exactly ten years ago today, former Rowland said, “I am ashamed to be here today, and I accept full responsibility for my actions.”  Today, a judge said Rowland’s “prior incarceration did not bring about the result that was hoped for.”

Rowland requested to be placed in Otisville Federal Correctional Institute in Otisville New York, about 130 miles from Hartford. The judge recommended Rowland serve his time there.

Panama Papers: Massive Tax Haven Document Leak Exposes Corruption and Crime on Global Scale

A massive leak of millions of documents has revealed that heads of state, criminals and celebrities conduct and sometimes conceal their business activities in tax havens. The leak exposes holdings in shadowy companies that are owned by 11 past and present heads of state, and reveals how partners of Russian President Vladimir Putin clandestinely transferred no less than $2 billion through banks and companies registered in tax shelters.
The source of the leaked documents is a very powerful yet not very well-known law firm called Mossack Fonseca. This firm has branches in Hong Kong, Miami, Zurich and more than 35 other locations around the world, among them Israel. The documents reveal many Israeli connections and disclose that businesspeople with Israeli citizenship as well as Israeli banks and companies have used the law firm to register companies in tax havens around the world.

SCOTUS ruling makes corrupt officials harder to prosecute, experts say

The Supreme Court building in Washington. (Photo: Jon Elswick/AP)
Some law scholars fear the Supreme Court’s Monday decision to overturn a high-profile bribery conviction will make it more difficult for the Justice Department to bring anticorruption or bribery prosecutions against U.S. officials.

Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell was found guilty of accepting more than $165,000 in gifts and loans from Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams in exchange for pushing his dietary supplement. But the high court voted to narrow the scope of an anticorruption law that prohibits public officials from accepting gifts in exchange for “official action.”

US Rep. Corrine Brown indicted after fraud investigation


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. –  U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown of Florida and her chief of staff have been charged with multiple fraud and other federal offenses in a grand jury indictment unsealed Friday after a federal investigation into a fraudulent charity with ties to the congresswoman.

Brown, a 69-year-old Democrat, was to appear later Friday in Jacksonville federal court on charges of mail and wire fraud, conspiracy, obstruction and filing of false tax returns. She has represented a Jacksonville-based congressional district since 1993 and is seeking re-election in a newly-redrawn district.

The indictment comes after an investigation into the charity One Door for Education Foundation Inc., which federal prosecutors say was purported to give scholarships to poor students but instead filled the coffers of Brown and her associates.

Also charged in the 24-count indictment was Elias "Ronnie" Simmons, 50, of Laurel, Maryland, who has served as Brown's chief of staff since 1993. It wasn't immediately clear from court records whether Brown and Simmons had attorneys to represent them.

The Obama Contamination

A column by Maureen Dowd entitled The Clinton Contamination is trending on Twitter as I write. Conservatives especially are all — so to speak  — a-twitter to have such a reliable leftist voice raised against the left's standard bearer. I've never been a fan of Dowd's but I've always respected her unwillingness to abandon her feminist principles to follow the Clintons down the rabbit hole of abuse and corruption. I wish some conservatives would learn from her example before they ditch their principles to traipse after Donald Trump.

But what struck me about the Dowd column was its view of Barack Obama. Dowd writes that the Clintons are so awful that they've "contaminated three of the purest brands in Washington — Barack Obama, James Comey and Loretta Lynch." This view of Obama as pure is not just Dowd's. It's the official narrative of the fantasy world that is the New York Times op-ed page — or, as I like to call it, Knucklehead Row.

"The Obama administration has been remarkably scandal-free," wrote David Brooks on the Row in February. "To his opponents, this president’s greatest sins are his success and his self," wrote Charles Blow. And Obama is "one of the most successful presidents in American history," says Paul Krugman, who may have heard all about it on the same tinfoil hat through which he receives his economic policies.

All this is simple childishness, the journalistic equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and whistling Dixie so you don't have to hear the bad news. Whether you agree with Obama or not, the fact remains that his administration has been wracked with scandal from the IRS to Fast and Furious to the persecution of journalists to Benghazi to the lies about Bowe Bergdahl to the lies and dirty deals used to pass Obamacare to the lies used to push the Iran nuclear deal and on and on. Just because the New York Times has responded to these scandals with a curious lack of interest in no way means they didn't exist.

Not excusing any one party, but based upon the reporting that is occurring, there does seem to be a higher percentage with the group that is supposedly concerned about women.

They're not concerned about women, never were; same with homos, trannies, 'for the chirrun', and Blacks.  These are just objects they've weaponized to use against the normies, to be kicked to the curb when no longer useful.

No, we won't be hearing that phrase any time soon.

The Frankenstein monster created by the Social Justice Warriors has run amok.  They can't control who the monster devours anymore.  

The elites in power who carefully constructed the monster always thought they would be in control.  As it turns out, that might not be the case.

Al Franken is still in office and will continue to be.  The unabashed hypocrisy has become commonplace.  I think Roy Moore did it.  So did Al.  Neither one should be in office.

The ones trying to control us have all sorts of darkness within them.  They (especially the left) have conjured up both real and imagined crimes that normal people commit every day.  Everything is offensive.  Everything one says that isn't in lock step is wrong.  Factually and morally wrong, according to them.

It's all a cover.  It's designed to foster the idea that none of us are free from infractions.  I, for one, am tired of being blamed for things I've never done by people who are morally bankrupt.  All for the sake of political gain.

It's easy to pretend that Trump is President because America is full of racists and bigots.  But that's not true.  America is pissed off.  And we elected the destroyer to put an end to some of the darkness that lurks inside the beltway.  Whether Trump is really that savior is hard to say.

The people that attack Trump are quick to usually say that he's done nothing good.  I'd say that's not true.  The elites are sick, deviant people that prey on helpless men, women and children to fulfill their deranged proclivities.  It is clear that for once, law enforcement in many parts of the country finally feels at liberty to prosecute these people.

  Thanks PI but I just like to answer her only because I know it's going to be based on nothing. At no time does she say what she doesn't like that he's doing. As far as I can see the GDP #s were for once in 8 years adjusted up to 3.3 % instead of down.  The market if way up jobs numbers are going in the right direction looks like we get a tax break and it's not all for the rich for a change.

  He wants the border protected he's put this country first is  a nice change. And he hasn't gone around apologising to the world and bowing down to every tin horn out there. Other than that he sucks!!   ::)

You don't "get" anything you ignorant twit. 

Not so veiled accusations of racism is the best you can do?  Just what the flying f&ck did OBAMA do about the North Korean threat?  Not a damn thing. What about Iran?  Obama sent them a pile of cash. And for what, exactly?  You can't answer any of that.  Instead of thinking about what is being discussed you make false accusations.

Great job. You do nothing but continue to prove that everything I've said about you is true.

So wait, are you forgetting the UN sanction led by Obama and company that has cost North Korea over $800 million in annual export revenue? Maybe it hasn't worked exactly the way we wanted it to, but "Not a damn thing" is a real stretch. The latest sanctions are pretty much more of the same policy.

Maybe it hasn't worked exactly the way we wanted it to, but "Not a damn thing" is a real stretch. The latest sanctions are pretty much more of the same policy.


That was my fault because I wasn't clear.  Let me explain.  Whether it is Bush, Obama, Trump, etc.  I am convinced that sanctions are ineffective and "don't do a damn thing" to lessen the threat that we face.  I'm not saying that 800 million is insignificant.  I just find that incongruous with Obama sending a pallet of cash to Iran.  Especially considering that they are an even more serious threat.  What sanctions do most effectively is increase the level of starvation in North Korea.  Even though Obama did send aid on a couple of occasions to North Korea.  Once right after an earthquake.  And again just days before Trump took office.  The timing of that is interesting...
Either way, no matter what we do with regard to sanctions, you can bet that Kim isn't missing any meals.

Please pardon me for the tangent I'm about to get on here.  This is pretty important stuff, in my opinion.  Even though I know you're not really here to actually discuss anything and of course are trying to accuse me of making a mistake while ignoring the ridiculous assertions that Rabit is making.  Other people reading this might actually find it interesting.

When we're dealing with North Korea, Iran, etc., we have to think in terms of the threat level.
1. Are the actions exacerbating the threat or are they diminishing it?  Is it remaining the same?
2. If we can't reduce the threat, what can we do to defend ourselves?

The best solution is a better defensive position.  But I don't mean a military one.  Hopefully Trump isn't dumb enough to get us involved in that.  You know what Vizzini says:

(https://i.imgflip.com/13f2jv.jpg)

When I say "defense" I mean systems and infrastructure hardening when it comes to resistance to an Electromagnetic Pulse or EMP.  This is something that has been circulated in Congress and the White House since Clinton was in office.  Currently, North Korea has a couple of satellites in orbit.  Incidentally, that satellite has a trajectory that takes it over the United States.  

See here:
http://www.wnd.com/2016/04/emp-alert-2-n-korean-satellites-now-orbit-over-u-s/ (http://www.wnd.com/2016/04/emp-alert-2-n-korean-satellites-now-orbit-over-u-s/)

You can track these satellites in real time as well.  In my opinion, this is the biggest threat we face from North Korea.  Of course, we mostly hear about the threat of ICBMs on the news.  But those aren't really that big of an issue because they, for some strange reason, don't seem to have mastered the rocketry and guidance issues.  What worries me is the possibility that a nuclear device could be delivered via a satellite and detonated at an altitude of approximately 200 miles.  

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/24/EMP_mechanism.png)

That, my lefty friend, is what worries me.  And if all Trump does is keep the status quo, then he's failing to do something that will actually protect us.  An infrastructure failure caused by a high altitude detonation is a nightmare scenario.  Sanctions isn't going to avoid that.  There are enough countries willing to flout the UN and continue to do business with our enemies.

Every Congress and President up until now has dropped the ball on this.  It's not some conspiracy theory nonsense.  it's science.  And we ignore it at our peril.

Well, the people of AL voted and spoke up. Roy is out to pasture now.

Yes, they did. I hardly call asking for a date, however, predatory behavior.

My "bull" comment was directed at your "I know a guy" tale.

Moore was a bad candidate.

The dirt is really starting to hit Obama and Hillary now, looks like they had the true Russian connections.

LOL, didn't win. Deflect, divert the conversation.
Weak even for you! Obama isn't in office anymore, Clinton didn't win...what happened to your Trump mantra move on? Except that the heat is coming down on the TRUE corruption of this election...and Putin helped. No wonder the dotard keeps cozying up to the Ruskies?!
The Trumpeter is obviously more important to you than preserving our democracy.
Going to invite your daughter for a 'tea party' meet up with your daughter? He's a sick man and needs treatment.

Actually it was the New York Times that first broke the story back in 2015.  Further evidence of collusion has surfaced since then, of course.

President Trump became the first national leader to call for protecting the U.S electric and communications grid against an electromagnetic attack like one practiced in North Korea.

Deep in his new national security strategy released this week, he made good on a campaign promise to move quickly to make the fixes that proponents have long called for.
