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.

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.)

Washington Post, by Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:08:09 PM     Post Reply
It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews ´ordered to register and list property´

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

At any one time hundreds of thousands of us are cocooned in pressurised cabins scything through the cold upper reaches of the troposphere. Soon enough, this figure will rise to a million: a million passengers, flown safely, if not always comfortably, across countries and continents, and with little call for comment. Before engines could lift heavier-than-air machines convincingly off the ground, any attempt at flight had been dangerous, and yet for hundreds of years, adventurers strapped wings to their arms, and leapt off hilltops and towers in the vain hope of flying. Even when a part of the science of flight

Max Blumenthal, like others on the far-Left, jumped on the July 2011 Norwegian massacre of 77 dead and 319 injured to impugn the counter-jihadi right. His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

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

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

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

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

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

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change causing fish to

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
