Democrats, The Party Of Corruption

Hot on the heels of Dr. Eowyn’s  post of Charlotte Dem. Mayor being indicted HERE  

I was listening to El Rushbo yesterday and he was talking about Leland Yee. Who is Yee? Read on. Then keep reading for a bunch of recent Dems Busted (Bold)

This guy takes the cake for Democrat corruption, and hypocrisy.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I’m not quite through with telling you who Leland Yee is.  He is big in California, and running for secretary of state. He’s a state senator.  He was practically Piers Morgan’s go-to guy for attacking legal gun owners.  You may not have seen it because nobody watched CNN or Piers Morgan, but Leland Yee was a frequent guest.

When he would leave an appearance on Piers Morgan, he’d go straight to Twitter.  Here’s a typical tweet from Leland Yee back on December 14th: “A year after Sandy Hook, let us recommit ourselves to working towards a safer society for all of us.”  I wonder how long Yee might have been allegedly helping to run guns?  I wonder if he was involved in Fast and Furious, for example.

But here’s a guy tweeting that we need to “recommit ourselves to working towards a safer society for all of us,” and this guy’s out running M16s, $2 million worth.  Now, as I mentioned, “Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon is facing public corruption charges after prosecutors said he solicited $48,000 in cash, airline tickets, a hotel room and the use of a luxury apartment as bribes from undercover FBI agents posing as developers.

“Cannon is the latest mayor of a large city to face a scandal in recent years. Here is a look at some others: Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin is awaiting sentencing after being found guilty in February of 20 counts of accepting bribes and other corruption charges…”  This is the guy that couldn’t get the school buses in action to get people moved out of New Orleans when Katrina was coming in.

“Former Trenton, NJ, Mayor Tony Mack was convicted in February of taking money in exchange for getting approval in 2012 to develop a downtown parking garage that only existed in a federal sting. He is awaiting sentencing. He is one of a long list of New Jersey mayors to face corruption charges since 2000, including the leaders of Newark, Camden, Paterson, Perth Amboy, Hoboken, Passaic, Asbury Park, Orange and Hamilton.”

These are all Democrats. 

The story does not say that, by the way.

They’re all Democrats. 

“Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner,” you remember him, “resigned last August after a number of sexual harassment allegations. He pleaded guilty to false imprisonment and misdemeanor battery in October...” Now, these are all Democrats, and all of these stings and scandal investigations took place during the Obama administration, and they run the FBI.  Something is going on here.

You would never expect this to happen unless… No, I don’t even want to speculate.  I’ll just take it for what it is at face value.  “Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is serving 28 years in prison after being convicted in October of extortion, bribery, conspiracy and other crimes.” Now, keep in mind as you hear all that, it’s the Tea Party that poses the biggest threat to this country. 

Yeah. It’s the Tea Party.

“In October 2008, Kilpatrick spent 99 days in jail for his part in a sex-and-text scandal. Former Birmingham, AL, Mayor Larry Langford took $235,000 in cash, loans and gifts… He was convicted of 60 counts in October 2009 and is serving 15 years in prison.” Now, here’s another story. This is a Washington Post version of the story: “FBI Conducts Raids, Targeting Elected Officials in Three States.”

Again, they don’t say Democrats here. 

“Federal law enforcement officials arrested two public officials in California and North Carolina and raided the office of a New York state senator in connection with separate corruption investigations on Wednesday. Hundreds of federal agents conducted searches of offices around the San Francisco Bay Area and arrested several people on Tuesday, including state Sen. Leland Yee (D) and a former head of a Hong Kong-based crime syndicate…

“Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon… William Scarborough,” an assemblyman. Both Democrats. “Investigators raided the Gee King Tong Free Masons offices in Chinatown, which [Raymond "Shrimp Boy"] Chow runs.” He was one of the associates of California state senator (Democrat) Leland Yee.  Now, folks, if this is strictly Democrats – which, so far, it is. We don’t know if there are other investigations yet to be revealed.

This mayor of Charlotte, by the way, has only been mayor for six months.  It didn’t take them long to size this guy up, for example.  The FBI has been working on all of this for years — and not a peep, folks!  In North Carolina, they’ve been setting up former mayor Cannon since 2010.  They spent over $480,000 to do it.  It’s hard to conclude otherwise.  It’s like the FBI has been working secretly behind the scenes since Obama was elected.

If this sweep is strictly Democrats, which so far it is, what does that mean?  What does that tell you?  Does it tell you anything? (interruption) Well, that is a possibility.  It is entirely possible that what’s going on here is that the head honchos of the Democrat Party are basically behind an effort to take out all of their bad apples before the election; make ‘em old news by the time the election comes around.

The timing here is obviously curious, and it really is hard to believe the FBI would be working against the wishes of the Regime.  Isn’t it?  That’s really hard to calculate.  So it could well be that the Democrats know they got some bad apples and they’re gonna just clear the decks, just get rid of all of them early enough in the year so that when the election comes around and their opponents start talking about it, it’s old news.

“Nothing to see here!”

It’s still, however, big news.

However, it’s not all that big.  I’ve got one sound bite on it.  I’m talking it’s big, big. But in the Drive-Bys, you’re not seeing a whole lot of it, is my point.  We did put together a montage.  We can call this “the Culture of Corruption.”  Prominent Democrat politicians have been arrested all across the fruited plain within the last week.  This is a 44-second montage of various Drive-By reporters from all over the country…

DAN ASHLEY: State Senator Leland Yee is in federal court right now facing a seven-count felony indictment of gun trafficking and political corruption. His stunning arrest happened this morning as the FBI raided multiple Bay Area locations.

MAUREEN O’BOYLE: Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon arrested, accused of bribery, theft and corruption.

MIKE MONTECALVO: (b-roll noise) Federal and state law enforcement execute two search warrants targeting the home and office of Rhode Island House Speaker, Gordon Fox.

ROMA TORRE: The FBI raids the home, office, and Albany hotel room of a state assemblyman from Queens. Investigators carried away boxes of William Scarborough’s files. The assemblyman is accused of abusing his expense vouchers.

CYNTHIA BRUNO: Former Illinois state representative Keith Farnham is being investigated for child pornography.

RUSH:  Oh, big time there!  Keith Farnham is being investigated for child pornography, and the assemblyman’s accused of “abusing his expense vouchers.”  Would you like to see that?  How do you abuse an expense voucher?  I know what the infobabe means, but that’s not what you say. You know, in our common culture, when you start saying that somebody abused their expense vouchers, the low-information crowd’s gonna say, “Well, gee, can you show me how that’s done?  Is it cool?”

Dingy Harry belongs in any discussion of a culture of corruption.  And, in fact, years ago the LA Times did a huge expose on Dingy Harry’s fraudulent, smarmy, sneaky land deals in Nevada and elsewhere.  Yesterday in Washington on Capitol Hill, there was a Senate Democrat press conference, and Dingy Harry spoke. During the Q&A, an unidentified Drive-By reporter and Dingy Harry went at it.

REPORTER:  Your decision yesterday to reimburse your campaign $17,000 –

REID:  I think it was $16,000, but whatever.

REPORTER:  Was that an acknowledgement that it was wrong to use your granddaughter –

REID:  No, no –

REPORTER:  — as a vendor and –

REID:  No, no in fact…

REPORTER:  — can you say why –

REID:  No, no in fact –

REPORTER:  — you decided to do that in the first place?

REID:  No, in fact it wasn’t. We complied with all the rules, that was said. I just wanted to avoid — and I’m very fortunate that I can write that check, so I’m – it’s all done. But everything was complied with beforehand.

REPORTER:  Well –

REID:  I’m not going to answer –

REPORTER:  — what was the reasoning in the first place?

REID:  Read my statement.

RUSH:  I’m not gonna answer. Read my statement.  Shut up!  You know who you’re talking to?  I’ve taken care of it, I can write that check.  You can’t.  I’m lucky I can.  I have money and you don’t, so shut up.  I’m Harry Reid.  Except he never talks that loud.  You know, speaking of having a cold, when I hear Harry Reid, I want to constantly either blow my nose or clear my throat.  That voice, it sounds like he needs a drain in there, just sounds like there’s so much saliva floating around in his mouth that you just — I don’t know.  It makes me nervous.  And let’s just listen to a montage of Democrats, this is 2006, when they ran to recapture the House on the supposed culture of corruption that was the Republican Party.

LOUISE SLAUGHTER: We will expose the deepest roots of the culture of corruption.

HARRY REID: This is a culture of corruption.

NANCY PELOSI: The Republican culture of corruption.

HARRY REID: I know a little bit about corruption.

OBAMA: Political corruption.

NANCY PELOSI: The culture of corruption.

RUSH:  I think Pelosi was very tight with Democrat State Senator Leland Yee, if I’m not mistaken.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH:  Now, one thing about the Dingy Harry corruption, I just want to give you the details of what happened.  Dingy Harry’s scandal this year — Remember, folks, the reason why — I’m interrupting myself here to make an observation.  It was the House Bank Scandal and the House Post Office Scandal that came to light in 1990, maybe a little earlier than that, but you can talk about the Contract with America, and it did matter. But the only reason — well, no, I can’t say the only reason.

Black pastor Jesse Lee Peterson: Trayvon was a thug

Rev. Jesse Lee PetersonRev. Jesse Lee Peterson

Add Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson to the very short list of right-thinking and righteous black Americans — Rev. James Manning, neurosurgeon Ben Carson, former Congressman Allen West, sports analyst & retired basketball player Charles Barkley — who refuse to partake in the public lynching of George Zimmerman.

In this CNN video, Rev. Peterson expressed his extreme displeasure over “race hustlers” like Al Sharpton, and how the media irresponsibly made Martin out to be some kind of “innocent little kid” instead of the truth that Martin was a young thug. Peterson asked why if Martin was “such a good little kid… did they work so hard to keep his history out of the courtroom.” He cited pictures of Martin’s Facebook page featuring him with a gun or marijuana.

Peterson said that people like Sharpton and Obama have injected themselves into this case to “incite the anger of black Americans and others,” adding that they’ve been “using black Americans by dividing the races” and “intimidating white people to get more power.”

Interviewer Piers “I’m-moving-back-to-England” Morgan called Peterson’s comments “quite offensive.”

Yes, Piers. The truth is offensive to those who lie and deceive!

“We all need a bit of nannying”

PIERS MORGAN: I disagree with you. I think people need them occasionally, particularly on issues like smoking, drinking, guzzling sodas too big for them, you know, eating 16 Big Macs a day, whatever it may be, the reality is we all need a bit of nannying about that. That’s why so many people are on diets. That’s a form of nanny state.

jerk

Hey Piers, you may need a bit of nannying yourself, especially when it comes to phone hacking. As for me, I’m plenty capable of making my own decisions. Why don’t you do us all a favor and take your British arse and your useless opinions back across the pond!

Vote for the Worst Media Bias of 2012!

What’s the Worst Media Bias of 2012?

Here are the candidates (from NewsMax):

1. In March 2012, two Newsweek/Daily Beast staffers were discussing former Vice President Dick Cheney’s heart transplant in March. Senior writer Ramin Setoodeh (who’s gay) said, “I would never give my heart to Dick Cheney. It would freeze over.” Assignment editor Allison Yarrow chimed in: “He may be one of the most evil people in the world.”

3. On July 4, 2012, MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said: “The land on which [the Founders] formed the Union was stolen. The hands with which they built this nation were enslaved. The women who birthed the citizens of the nation are second class. This is the imperfect fabric of our nation. . . It’s ours, all of it. The imperialism, the genocide, the slavery.”

4. In September 2012, CNN’s Piers Morgan fawned over Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has called for Israel to be wiped off the map. Morgan asked Ahmadinejad, “How many times in your life have you been properly in love?” Ahmadinejad responded, “I’m in love with all humanity. I love all human beings.” To which Morgan gushed: “That might be the best answer I’ve ever heard to that question.”

Piers Morgan “may” deport himself

morgan

After saying that our Constitution and Bible need to be amended, he’s threatening to deport himself, “maybe”…

If America won’t change its crazy gun laws… I may deport myself

Daily Mail: I have fired guns only once in my life, on a  stag party to the Czech capital Prague a few years ago when part of the  itinerary included a trip to an indoor shooting range. For three hours, our  group were let loose on everything from Magnum 45 handguns and Glock pistols, to  high-powered  ‘sniper’ rifles and pump-action shotguns.

It was controlled, legal, safe and undeniably  exciting. But it also showed me, quite demonstrably, that guns are killing  machines.

Rarely has the hideous effect of a gun been  more acutely laid bare than at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown,  Connecticut, two weeks ago – when a deranged young man called Adam Lanza  murdered 20 schoolchildren aged six and seven, as well as six adults, in a  sickening rampage.

The Sandy Hook massacre brought back such  horribly vivid memories for me of Dunblane, the worst mass shooting in Britain  in my lifetime. I was editor of the Daily Mirror on that day  back in 1996 and will never forget the appalling TV footage of those poor  Scottish mothers sprinting to the small primary school, many already howling  with anguish at the thought of what might have happened to their five-year-old  children. It was a slaughter so senseless, so  unspeakable, that it reduced even hard-bitten news reporters, including me, to  tears.

And as I watched the parents at Sandy Hook  racing to try to find their children, I saw the same images, the same terror,  that engulfed Dunblane. And I felt the same tears welling up. Then, 16 five-year-old children were slain in  their classroom. Now, 20  six- and seven-year-olds. Beautiful young lives  snuffed out before they had a chance to fulfil any of their potential. It made  me so gut-wrenchingly angry.

I have four children. And I still remember  the blind terror I felt when I lost my son Stanley, then aged two, for half an  hour at a cricket match on a field surrounded by a small running creek. I was  sure he’d drowned. But I was lucky: he finally emerged from where he’d been  hiding – big, cheeky grin intact.

Every parent has a similar story. To even try  to conceive of how you would feel if your child was shot multiple times in the  head by a Rambo madman at school is just impossible. I honestly don’t know how  you would ever carry on with life.

But my anger turned to blind rage when I saw  the reaction to this hideous massacre in America. Sales of the specific weapon used, an AR-15  military-style assault rifle, rocketed at gun stores all over America in the  days following the Sandy Hook shooting.

And the country’s biggest gun supplier, Brownells, said it sold more high-capacity bullet magazines in three days than it normally did in three-and-a-half years.

What is behind this apparently insane  behaviour? The answer is, mainly, fear. The well-organised, richly funded, vociferous  pro-gun lobby were straight out, on my CNN show and many other media outlets,  declaring that the only way those schoolchildren would have survived is if their  teachers had been armed. It’s been their answer to every mass shooting.

After the shootings at a cinema in Aurora,  Colorado, in July – where 70 people were hit, the worst victim-count in such an  incident in US history, and 12 people died – sales of guns in the state rose by  a staggering 41 per cent in the following month as people bought into the theory  that if everyone in the theatre had been armed too, they’d have stopped the  shooter. Can you imagine the scene as 200 people pulled out guns and started  blazing away in a dark theatre?

The gun-lobby logic dictates that the only  way to defend against gun criminals is for everyone else to have a  gun,  too. Teachers, nurses, clergymen, shop assistants, cinema usherettes – everyone  must be armed. To me, this is a warped, twisted logic that  bears no statistical analysis and makes no sense. Do you fight drug addiction  with more cocaine? Alcoholism with more Jack Daniel’s? Of course not.

But woe betide anyone who dares suggest this.  In the days following Sandy Hook, I interviewed a number of gun-rights  representatives and grew increasingly furious as they  trotted out these  hackneyed old  disingenuous lines.

Finally, I erupted at one of them, a man with  the unfortunate name of Larry Pratt, who runs the Gun Owners of America lobbying  group. ‘You,’ I eventually declared, ‘are an  unbelievably stupid man.’ And that was the catalyst for the full wrath  of the gun lobby to crash down on my British head.

A petition was created on an official White  House website demanding my deportation for ‘attacking the 2nd Amendment of the  Constitution’. This, of course, is the one that alludes to an American’s ‘right  to bear arms’.

The concerted effort to get me thrown out of  the country – which has so far gathered more than 90,000 signatures – struck me  as rather ironic, given that by expressing my opinion I was merely exercising my  rights, as a legal US resident, under the 1st Amendment, which protects free  speech. But no matter.

This gun debate is an ongoing war of verbal  attrition in America – and I’m just the latest target, the advantage to the gun  lobbyists being that I’m British, a breed of human being who burned down the  White House in 1814 and had to be forcefully deported en masse, as no American  will ever be allowed to forget – Special Relationship notwithstanding.

It’s no exaggeration to say that America’s  unique fondness for guns pretty much got cemented by hatred of us Brits and the  War of Independence. But the main reason the more fervent gun-rights activists  give is a fear of their own US federal government using its army to impinge on  their freedom. The problem is that America’s historical love of guns means the  country is now awash with them – and with gun death.

tweet

My argument with guns is not based on some  universal, pathological hatred of them. I’m not a pacifist. Guns win necessary  wars and defeat tyrannical regimes like the Nazis.

Nor do I have a problem with those who use  guns for hunting or for sport. I also understand, and respect, how there is an  inherent national belief in America, based on their understanding of the 2nd  Amendment, that everyone should be allowed to have a gun at home for the  purposes of self-defence.

But where I have a big problem is when the  unfortunately ambiguous wording of the 2nd Amendment is twisted to mean that  anyone in America can have any firearm they want, however powerful, and in  whatever quantity they want.

In conclusion, I can spare those Americans  who want me deported a lot of effort by saying this: If you don’t change your  gun laws to at least try to stop this relentless tidal wave of murderous  carnage, then you don’t have to worry about deporting me.

Although I love the country as a second home  and one that has treated me incredibly well, I would, as a concerned parent  first – and latterly, of a one-year-old daughter who may attend an American  elementary school like Sandy Hook in three years’ time – seriously consider  deporting myself.

Ted Turner says “it’s good” that our soldiers are committing suicide

The U.S. war in Afghanistan is now 11 years old — the longest war in American history. Since our soldiers are volunteer enlistees, instead of drafts, even after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, they are repeatedly deployed back. All of which means our soldiers are highly stressed; that stress, in turn, has led to alarmingly high rates of mental problems and suicides. U.S. soldiers are killing themselves at a rate of nearly one per day and the figure continues to rise.

Ted Turner, 73, is a media mogul who founded CNN. Formerly married to “Hanoi Jane” Fonda (they divorced because he reportedly cheated on her), Turner is another of those limousine liberals socialists who talk Marxist clap-trap but, with an estimated net worth of $2 billion, lives a life of the 0.000001%.

In an interview on CNN, host Piers Morgan was expressing his shock at the high rate of suicides in the U.S. military. Morgan started saying, “More American servicemen are dying…committing suicide,” when Turner chimed in: “Yeah, suicide over there, dying in combat.”

Morgan said “It’s shocking, isn’t it?”

This is what Turner said, with a smile:

“No! I think it’s good! Because, arh, it’s so clear we’re programmed and we’re born to love and help each other, not to kill each other. That’s an aberration, left over from hundreds of years ago. It’s time for us to start acting enlightened.”

See and hear for yourself:

If you think that Turner is saying that humanity is starting to spiritually evolve an aversion to war, think again.

As Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars.com points out:

“However, Turner has repeatedly voiced his wish to see billions of people wiped off the planet via population reduction programs.

Ted Turner’s satisfaction at U.S. troops committing suicide takes on a different context when you understand that Turner is a neo-eugenicist who routinely advocates massive population reduction.

‘A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal,’ Turner stated in 1996.

In the third world, Turner has contributed a billion dollars to fund population reduction, namely through United Nations programs.

While asserting that the rest of the world should impose China’s brutal one-child policy to ‘save the planet’, Turner himself has 5 children and owns no less than 2 million acres of land. He is the largest private landowner on the planet, falling short of only the royal families of Europe.

Turner’s call for the United Nations to become a dictatorial body under the banner of global peacekeeping is suspect given that the UN itself admitted responsibility for failing to act during the 1994 Rwanda genocide during which 800,000 people were killed.

The United Nations is also riddled with corruption and has tried to impose mass gun control by stealth under the guise of its Small Arms Treaty.”

Born into wealth, the son of a billboard magnate, Ted Turner had never served in the military. He once called observers of Ash Wednesday “Jesus freaks,” and dubbed opponents of abortion “bozos.” He is a supporter of Obamacare. Through Turner Enterprises, he owns 15 ranches in Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and South Dakota, totaling 1,910,585 acres, which makes him one of the largest individual landowners in North America.
