Emails show FBI investigating
Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping
with underage Dominican prostitutes

Daily Caller, by David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/25/2013 5:49:57 AM

Documents published online for the first time Thursday indicate that the FBI opened an inquiry into New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on August 1, 2012, focusing on repeated trips he took to the Dominican Republic with longtime campaign contributor and Miami eye doctor Salomon Melgen. TheDC reported in November that Menendez purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties. The documents, which The Daily Caller had obtained hours earlier from an anonymous source, also indicate that Carrie Levine, research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW),

The word, "Democratic" in the first sentence? This is obviously not one of those guvmint propaganda-spreading news sources.

Judging from the performance of congress and the rest of the obama administration, this sort of thing is no doubt widespread amongst our leadeship. Menendez was just careless enough to get caught.

Now we have to learn to say, President Menendez. Nothing stirs the passion of the low information voter like deviant sex.

You´re telling me that Bob Menedez had to pay for sex; are you next going to tell me that Bawney Fwank´s boyfriend was getting more than one type of Fannie compensation?

We can only hope that twenty years ago Bob knocked up one of his hookers with twins, and she named them Lyle and Eric.

Menendez is the incompetent creep that was handed the job when the other corrupt jackass Corzine vacated the seat to become Gov. The brain-dead NJ voter contingent rewarded both Corzine and Menendez by re-electing Menendez in 2010 to another "illustrious" 4-year term in which he does nothing.
I have lived in NJ my entire life and I´ve always loved it here but I´m very seriously considering leaving. I can´t take the imbeciles that have flooded in any longer.

This, of course, would only be an outrage if the miscreant were a Republican.

RATS have their "it´s just about sex" get out of jail free card.

You know, life would be so much easier without a concscience. Which obviously is a requirement for membership in the Democrat party.

Folks, which is worse? A guy molests his daughter and gets twenty years in prison,does the time and has to register as a sex offender for over a decade upon release or a politician who travels thousands of miles to have sex with underage prostitutes at someone else´s expense, does it multiple times and gets away with it scot free and never has to register? Both are wrong, but which is the greater crime and tragedy? Who goes to prison now days? Joe Bloe or a Senator? The system is not just nor is it justice.

Hopefully this will derail the burgeoning career of his daughter, "Democrat Strategist" Alicia Menendez. She´s one of those hack talking heads who appears on Hannity or O´Reilly and regurgitates the the 0vomit Party Line. One of her trademark jabs at the GOP is that it doesn´t respect or care about Latinos! Isn´t that amazing?! Hey, Alicia, apparently your pig-faced father is also pretty hard on Latina juveniles! Talk about LOW, the article stated that he even renegs on the agreed upon fee for services after he´s done the dirty deed. He´s sewer scum.

Conveniently, if he could somehow be extricated from his Senate seat, Chris Christie can then appoint Newark mayor Cory Booker to complete Menendez´ term, thereby eliminating Booker as a challenger in the upcoming New Jersey gubernatorial race. Since it´s obvious that Booker is on the Regime´s fast track, I foresee Menendez being ousted from the Senate. I imagine his disgusting sexual predilections may have been practiced on U.S. soil at some point in his life, and he may ultimately be convinced to voluntarily fade away after he receives an offer he can´t refuse.

Menendez is just enhancing his resume for bigger things in the ´Rat party. This kind of deviance will at minimum get him the VP slot with Hillary in ´16. The sheeple think this kind of thing is great, as long as you have that "D" after your name. After all, it just proves that Menendez is a "playah".

A good example as to the treatment of liberals as opposed to conservatives. Menendez has no worries. First, any criminal action must go thru the justice department and Obama and Holder will be sure to squelch any advancement of that. Second, there will be no effort on the part of the MSM to delve into the accusations or even legitimate charges. If The Daily Caller or FoxNews tries to cover the details the Democrats will cry "POLITICS!" And the MSM, entertainment, and liberal judges will jump into action.

Menendez must be chuckling over it all.

That´s what Sen. Menendez uses to summon his underage prostitutes.

He´s been borrowing pre-owned condoms from BillyBoob Klintoon, I hear.

Usually BillyBoob donates his pre-owned condoms to charity to claim a tax deduction.

Sen Cardin of Md will leap-frog Sen Menendez to replace Sen Kerry as Chair, Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, now that two major and well deserved hits have been put on Menendez...not paying the agreed upon rate for his call girls in some Latin American country and having an illegal alien child molester on his staff...

As we know, if he were a Repub, the drum-beat would have begun long ago for his ouster.

The media would have picked it up immediately, we would never get a break from it, the cameras would haunt him, the comedians would ridicule, Dem/Lefties would harrass and harrangue.

He would be hounded out of office. And all Rs would be tainted and smeared by association.

Menendez is an evil little man. Move around some of those rocks and weeds, we´ll most likey see much more and even uglier stuff.

But hey! what difference does it make? think: Teddy Kennedy manslaughterer; Bawney Fwank and his Hot Bottom male prostitute "room-mate´s" "parking tickets" and Gerry Studds, getting underage male pages drunk and molesting.

(By the way, all THREE of these pervy pervs are from MA. NJ has a way to go to catch up.)

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers.

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
