After Jesse Jackson Jr. quit,
Sandi changed campaign reports

Chicago Sun-Times, by Natasha Korecki

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 12/14/2012 5:49:56 AM

Five days after Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned from Congress, his wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson, filed a series of amendments to her ward committee’s campaign fund, revealing dozens of previously undisclosed transactions that went back three years. That includes at least $13,000 in previously undisclosed transfers from her husband’s congressional account into her ward organization account, a Sun-Times review of campaign records show. Among the undisclosed transactions shown in the amended reports were monthly transfers of $1,250 to his wife’s 7th Ward Independent Political Organization — or SWIPO. In a federal disclosure, Rep. Jackson’s campaign fund indicates a $1,250 payment

This is what liberal politicians do all the time,including Harry Reid a few years ago. Oh,I got caught,all I have to do is file an amended return and all is forgiven. The whole idea that Jackson could redecorate his house out of campaign funds without his wife´s involvement is ludicrous.

No. 5 is correct: nothing to see, unless the State actually files charges and unless she actually gets convicted and unless she actually gets sentenced. None of which will happen.

Could ancient earthquake
explain Shroud of Turin?
FoxNews/Live Science, by Megan Gannon    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 2/13/2014 12:57:09 PM     Post Reply
The authenticity of the Shroud of Turin has been in question for centuries and scientific investigations over the last few decades have only seemed to muddle the debate. Is the revered cloth a miracle or an elaborate hoax? Now, a study claims neutron emissions from an ancient earthquake that rocked Jerusalem could have created the iconic image, as well as messed up the radiocarbon levels that later suggested the shroud was a medieval forgery. But other scientists say this newly proposed premise leaves some major questions unanswered. The Shroud of Turin, which bears a faint image of a man´s face and torso,

When President Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in March 2012 that "after my election I have more flexibility," most assumed he was referring to foreign policy. It turns out Mr. Obama´s ambitions weren´t so limited. Earlier this week, Mr. Obama demonstrated his imperial flexibility again, delaying another important provision of the Affordable Care Act. For firms with 50-99 employees, the president waived until 2016 the requirement they provide health insurance or pay a fine. Also, companies with 100 or more workers can avoid most of the law´s penalties if they provide coverage to at least 75% of their workforce. The

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Paula Deen has found a key ingredient to bringing some sizzle back to her career — a cash infusion worth at least $75 million from a private investment firm. The Savannah-based celebrity cook announced Wednesday that she’s launched an umbrella company that will oversee her restaurants, cookbooks, product endorsements and other remaining slices of her media empire. The new company, called Paula Deen Ventures, said private-equity firm Najafi Companies is investing $75 million to $100 million to help Deen make a comeback. Deen’s fortunes took a dive last year after comments she made under oath during proceedings in

C omcast is proposing to buy rival Time Warner Cable for $45 billion, combining the No. 1 and No. 2 cable TV providers in the country. The all-stock deal needs approval from each company´s board of directors — reportedly a done deal — the Justice Department´s antitrust division, and the Federal Communications Commission. The deal isn´t going to happen. Not in any recognizable form. First, here´s the argument for why it might: Comcast has 22 million pay-TV subscribers and TWC has 11 million, a number it has already suggested it could shave by 3 million under the deal. That would give the combined

State Treasurer Dan Rutherford routinely roomed overnight in hotels and a Chicago apartment with a low-level treasurer´s office employee whom he has given a 50 percent pay hike, raising questions about the workplace judgment of the Republican candidate for governor. Rutherford said he has shared a room with his executive assistant, Joshua Lanning, scores of times since taking office in 2011, a practice he says is a way to save money for his campaign fund. "We double-bunk in the campaign," Rutherford said. "We always double-bunk when we can. Totally as a cost-saving measure." Several human resources experts said superiors should avoid sharing a

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has

The Obama Administration has decided to relax Obamacare’s employer mandate again. Much will be written about that decision’s impact on the law’s viability and the 2014 and 2016 elections. But there’s a bigger issue at play, here. Ever since Obamacare’s implementation has gone off the rails, the White House has been trying to fix the law by deciding not to enforce, or to selectively enforce, or to enforce differently, various provisions of the law. The problem with that is…that it’s not how American government is supposed to work. As any civics class teacher knows, the way American government is supposed to work

A North Carolina hospital says 18 patients were exposed to a rare and fatal brain disease after “extra precautions should have been taken, but were not.” Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., said surgical tools used on a patient suspected of having Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease should have been subjected to “enhanced sterilization procedures” to remove CJD-linked proteins called prions. Instead, the instruments underwent the normal, less stringent sterilization process and were subsequently used in 18 neurosurgery patients, according to the hospital. “Our standard procedure is to apply the enhanced sterilization process to surgical instruments that are used on any patient who

A Beaumont man was cited by police after riling up motorists by standing at an intersection carrying an AK-47 while dressed as a banana. Derek Poe, owner of Golden Triangle Tactical gun shop, said the stunt was part of the store´s grand opening after moving locations. Poe said the man in the banana suit was holding an AK-47 across his back with the barrel pointing down and holding a sign with an arrow pointing toward the store. He said this idea was to attract customers to the store. A Beaumont police spokesperson said officers temporarily detained the 18-year-old and found he had the rifle

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

King branded as “morons” many conservatives in the GOP caucus who consistently oppose any effort to pass the debt limit, asserting they are the same faction that led to the government shutdown last year. “This is the same group that back in September and October went into a government shutdown that everybody knew was a disaster,” King said on MSNBC. “They ended up looking like morons following Ted Cruz over the cliff.” King had been
