Congress on Red Alert for 60
Minutes Exposé of D.C. Corruption

Breitbart´s Big Journalism, by Wynton Hall

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 10/20/2013 3:21:28 PM

Members of Congress and their staffs are on red alert tonight for a CBS 60 Minutes investigation by veteran CBS reporter Steve Kroft and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and Breitbart News editor Peter Schweizer exposing how lawmakers convert campaign donations into lavish lifestyle upgrades for themselves and their family members. Sources say top CBS executives thought the report was so explosive that they made it the show’s lead story and delayed airing it for another week in order to capture tonight’s much larger NFL-viewing audience. The report features selected revelations from Schweizer’s forthcoming book, Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your

So why did Baucus step down and Queen Nancy still has her leadership postition?

If this report focuses on Harry Reid and the corruption in Nevada, I will change my opinion of network news organiations. That man is rotten to the core.

Dingy-Hairy Reed and Nasty Pelosi need not worry. The only members of Congress the 60 minutes "veteran reporter" will have "investigated" are Republicans. Does anyone actually believe CBS will "investigate" their fellow criminal-enterprise-travelers in the demonrat party?......Puhleeeze!

I´m watching and taking notes.
Schweitzer is bipartisan critic.
FTA "Schweizer, a noted conservative and fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, has gained a national reputation for his bipartisan corruption investigations, attacking Democrats and Republicans alike. Earlier this year, progressive Comedy Central host Jon Stewart of the Daily Show featured Schweizer in a segment on the STOCK Act wherein Stewart criticized Congress for watering down the bill Schweizer’s book helped pass."

Since it´s on CBS, my guess that massive influence peddling, insider deals and outright graft by Democrats will be neglected and the two overdue library books some Tea Party/Republican congressman had in 7th grade will be featured as proof of massive Republican corruption in Washington.

This has to be another left wing dirty tricks campaign to make people hate republicans even more and erase their bargaining power on upcoming fights.

They might use somebody like Jesse jr. as a dem example while unloading on current GOP members.

Nothing has happened at all to the delusional hallucinating Nancy Peyote.

No one gives a rat´s you know what about Spencer Bachus of Alabama.

This is a Big... "So What?"...

And really... At this point...
What difference does it make????

The Klintonoids are still flacking for Terry McAuliffe, so they´ll having a nearby

The lying lunatic in the White Hutt remains unaffected.... So.... So what?

I´m hoping they prove me wrong, but I´m agreeing with all of you skeptics that the purpose of the "exposé" is to harm Republicans and help Dems. It´s difficult to believe they would wait to time it for the largest audience if it was mainly about Dems. Makes me wonder if they have a Conservative in the crosshairs, or one that is considered more conservative by them.
It may be legitimate, or it may be just a platform for future propaganda.

Wow! What a Surrr-Prize! No S Sherlock!

In 1998 I had to work through a project for a new food manufacturing process. The development company and paten holder, could not get FDA approval- even though the new porcess greatly lowered food cost(for this food item) and greatly enhanced at lower cost, it´s distribution to the market- and it in now way altered the product! But, still it required FDA approval. Finally,after two years of utter frustration, someone (anonymous, of course) at FDA advised the company to pay $50,000.00 (CASH!) to Senator X-x-x. As soon as the "campaign donation" was made, the FDA approval on all points came down by express mail. And they never even once sent an inspector to see the process!

Our elected Gvt. is nothing but one huge house of thieves and bribery whores.

CBS has some pretty lame games as their lead in today. Audience may not be as strong as they´d have liked (if the Jets/Patriots game was the lead, there would have been a bigger crowd to catch 60 minutes, a show I haven´t watched in 30 years.

We have the government of a banana republic. Corrupt. Bloated. Dysfunctional.

We need to get rid of the McCains and Grahams. Elect genuine conservatives. Change the Republican Party to a Tea Party.

I do not vote for Republicans to "get along" with Democrats. I vote for them to FIGHT for America and to WIN those fights.

The Tea Party IS the centrist party. Anything to the left of it is nuts.

Wow! Think about the vast majority of the comments above. One of the "big 3" networks in what´s supposed to be the freest counrty in the world and almost all of us think it will turn out to be a hit piece on Republicans.

I concur. #7 probably hit it pretty well on the head.

But maybe, just maybe, we´ll get a surprise. I´m putting the odds of that at 2%.

By the way, the Republican establishment needs a good, old-fashioned ass-whippin but not by the likes of a democrat enabling, 100% liberal/communist organization like cbs.

The entire Democrat party and the MSM are all corrupt now, they cant burn any Democrats without burning themselves, because they are the ones responsible for shape this countries in.

Coming from Breitbart and Schweizer, perhaps this program has a chance. Both Republican and Democrat crooks need to be exposed. Keep an open mind until it airs. Then praise or condemn it. Beating it death ahead of time shows how childish we have become.

If the truth be known and you are truthful in pointing fingers, why not shame all those Republicans who stayed home last election that got Obama reelected?

Yes they have a right to do that but it doesn´t mean I have to respect them as Americans for giving us a Marxist government. I trust the same wimpy cowards will do the same thing in 2014 and 2016.

If Kentuckians have IQ´s above minus 10 they will flock to the polls to get rid of McConnell. If they don´t then they deserve the term "country bumpkin" and I will consider them Anti-Constitution.

Wonder if the folks in Arizona have the integrity and courage to get rid of McCain? Probably not.

While the horror show involving Brendan Eich, Proposition 8, and Mozilla was reaching its ignominious crescendo, I was in Milan, Italy, speaking before an energized crowd of activists in the Lombardy region’s county hall. Unaware of the witch hunt carried out by McCarthy’s rainbow-brandishing gay great-grandsons in Silicon Valley, a middle-aged man came forward and cried out in Italian, “Is it just me, or is the gay lobby imposing a dictatorship on us with their so-called scientific experts?” The science to which he referred wasn’t JavaScript, but rather psychology and pediatrics.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

These, and many other offenders, are the rightful targets of the new book “NYC Basic Tips and Etiquette,” (HarperCollins), which should be handed out to newcomers at every point of entry. “If New York City were a game show,” says author and artist Nathan W.

Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois, has expressed support of a priest who refused Holy Communion to Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), who supports abortion. Following the priest’s withholding of the sacrament, Paprocki replied to a pro-life activist’s email about the issue. Matt Abbott at RenewAmerica published the bishop’s response: Dear Mr. [name redacted], Senator Durbin was informed several years ago by his pastor at Blessed Sacrament Parish here in Springfield that he was not permitted to receive Holy Communion per canon 915 of the Code of Canon Law.

Meningitis Outbreak in L.A.´s
Gay Community, Three Dead

In what the Los Angeles Times is referring to as a meningitis outbreak in L.A.´s gay community, since January 1 there have been eight occurrences of invasive meningococcal disease in L.A. County.

When discussing the thoughtcrime prosecution and ouster of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich last night, I quoted a passage from a First Things article which appeared to assert that Eich´s donation to the campaign for the Prop 8 gay marriage ban in California in 2008 - the sole reason he was hounded out of his job by a fascist mob - was made public when corrupt agents of the Internal Revenue Service leaked the donor list for the National Organization for Marriage to a gay-rights group. In an update to the post, I mentioned that I had quickly grown doubtful of

John Edwards — who quit his presidential campaign in disgrace when he was caught cheating on his wife — was barred from Bunny Mellon’s funeral by her family. The former US Senator from North Carolina had charmed Rachel Lambert Mellon, known to all as Bunny, into donating $700,000 for his 2008 presidential bid. Prosecutors charged he used some of the money to support his mistress Rielle Hunter, who was then pregnant with his daughter Frances Quinn. When the former politician and his daughter Cate Edwards, who is also his law partner, arrived Friday at Mellon’s funeral at the Trinity Episcopal

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

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’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
