Another Day: Another Crooked Democrat
Democrats aren't interested in representing anyone but their own interest. Treating government like personal tool for personal gain. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane was convicted Monday of perjury, obstruction, and other crimes, after squandering her once-bright political future on an illegal vendetta against an enemy.I had a damned Democrat tell my wife this week, well so and so is on the board. They wanted something from us, figured their political connections mattered. So they dropped a name. LMAO.
Four years after Kane's election in a landslide as the first Democrat and first woman elected attorney general, a jury of six men and six women found her guilty of all charges: two counts of perjury and seven misdemeanor counts of abusing the powers of her office.
Well they might matter but they have it backwards, you do ME a favor, do well at your job and I might vote for you. Otherwise GTFO my face you dirty filthy slimy politician.

Everyone Wave Buh Bye to Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Debbie Wasserman Schultz to depart as Democratic Party chairwoman after leaked emailsWait I thought Donna Brazile was just a sometimes pretty drunk journalist?
PHILADELPHIA, July 24 (UPI) -- Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced Sunday she will step down as Democratic National Committee chairwoman after leaked internal emails suggested favoritism toward Hillary Clinton.
Schultz, also a member of the House of Representatives from South Florida, had decided not speak at the convention this week before she made the announcement and her party stripped her role in Philadelphia.
DNC Vice Chairwoman Donna Brazile will serve as interim chair through the election, it was announced Sunday. Brazile, who has been a CNN and ABC commentator, served in the party role on an interim basis in the spring of 2011.

Reverend Al Works on Cash Only Basis
I wonder if good ol' Al Sharpton reported the 16 Large to the IRS? I mean he's safe because the IRS is now a political tool the Democrats use it to persecute their enemies, God forbid if fall into the hands of their enemies and they do the exact same thing.
The IRS is a weapon only safe in the hands of Crooked Hillary and her supporters, as I recall good ol' Al Sharpton is a Democrat, so he gets a pass.
Shakedown Sharpton has struck again, according to an Arizona trucker, who says in a new federal lawsuit that the good reverend promised to help him, then took him for $16,000.I guess Reggie just found out why, Al already snorted that $16k. What $16k?
“He’s a crook, he’s a fraud, and that’s all he is,” complains Reggie Anders Sr., who sought out the Rev. Al Sharpton for help resolving a 2009 discrimination dispute with Verizon.
“He didn’t do anything he promised,” Anders said Saturday by phone from Mesa, Arizona. “Absolutely nothing.”
...Sharpton would “set up mediation meetings” and, if need be, “put the matter to the media” and even blast the telecom giant on his weekly radio broadcast, according to Anders’ lawsuit, filed Friday in Manhattan federal court. All Anders had to do was hand over $16,000. Sharpton was very clear about how he wished to be paid, Anders told The Post. “He wanted cash only. He didn’t say why.”
... Asked about Anders on Saturday, Sharpton said, “Who? I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

News That's Not News Democrat Corrine Brown Faces 300 Years
U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Fla., and her chief of staff, Elias "Ronnie" Simmons, are facing multiple counts of fraud and other charges related to an educational charity tied to the congresswoman, according to a federal indictment.Corrine Brown's charity spent .15% on scholarships that's $1200 of $800,000. Possibly the most blatant charity overhead ever recorded. But they did spend money on important things.
Federal prosecutors allege Brown, 69, and Simmons, 50, misled donors while soliciting donations for One Door for Education, under the guise of funding scholarships for minority students, raising more than $800,000.
Instead, as NPR's Greg Allen reports for our Newscast Unit, "prosecutors say Brown, Simmons and Carla Wiley, the head of the charity, diverted the funds to their own accounts."
As part of their fundraising, prosecutors say Brown, Simmons and Wiley spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on events including a golf tournament in Ponte Vedra, Fla., and the use of luxury boxes for an NFL game and a Beyoncé concert."So not only is Corrine Brown.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida congresswoman indicted on fraud charges is telling supporters she’s being “persecuted” by federal authorities because she’s black.Bitch please.
NPR: Brown and Simmons are also charged in failing to disclose deposits and payments they received from One Door for Education on tax returns.If liberal NPR runs with it, its NOT because you're black.
Furthermore, Brown is accused of falsifying tax deductions on returns from 2008 to 2014, claiming donations to One Door for Education as well as churches and non-profits which prosecutors say were never made. Simmons is accused of misusing his position as Brown's chief of staff, hiring a close relative, then diverting $80,000 of the relative's salary for his personal benefit.
Hat Tip: NewsBusters.
Update: Double down baby!
el Sooper! In an unbelievably hilarious statement, the troglodyte Democrat indicted for stealing money from kids in a scam charity says that the FBI might have been able to stop the Orlando terror attack if they had left her alone!!

Trust 2016! Democrats With YOUR Security
Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach.Reports the DNC account hacked was KGB1 with the password freegiftfromdebbie could not be confirmed.
The intruders so thoroughly compromised the DNC’s system that they also were able to read all email and chat traffic, said DNC officials and the security experts.
The intrusion into the DNC was one of several targeting American political organizations. The networks of presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were also targeted by Russian spies, as were the computers of some GOP political action committees, U.S. officials said. But details on those cases were not available.
A Russian Embassy spokesman said he had no knowledge of such intrusion

Democrats Denying Bernie's Supporters Right to Vote
Antonio Gonzalez of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project (SVREP) is no stranger to exit polling misses. Gonzalez ran a national exit poll of Latino voters in 2004 that proved more correct than Edison Research’s polling for the National Election Pool, but has defended Edison against claims that they misread the Latina and Latino vote in the Nevada caucuses on the Democratic side in 2016. Last week I asked Gonzalez why exit polls are missing so badly for primaries between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders. “The exit polls,” he believes, “were accurate in who actually turned out, in who tried to vote.”Er shocking.
A woman named Chloe (whose personal information is otherwise redacted below) describes registering as a new voter more than a week before New York’s deadline with the Department of Motor Vehicles. In spite of persistent efforts, including a record of more than a dozen calls and emails stretching to page fifteen of Exhibit A in Election Justice USA (EJUSA)’s lawsuit filed in New York City, Chloe still has not been registered as a Democrat.

Joe Biden Drops Out
Don't get me wrong, I like Joe Biden as a person, his politics are too liberal, way left for a Middle of the Road Democrat.
But at least Joe is honest about it. In fact if not for Joe being there the Obama Administration wouldn't have one brain if you added them all together.
So I would have liked to seen Joe get in before the Debate, but it was clear after the debate his absence was a killer. Pat Buchanan was spot on.
It is telling though how far left the Dems have moved with all the Classical Democrats, Webb and now Biden, gone....
As for Hillary she's intentionally moving left abandoning the Bill Clinton coalition of moderates and labor.
Its all left to the Commiecrats now.

Former Illinois State Representative Keith Farnham(D) To Die in Prison
He wanted mercy.
Convicted child pornographer and former State Rep. Keith Farnham is at death’s door and should be allowed to die “with dignity” outside prison, his lawyer says.But the judge sent him to prison anyway.
The terminally-ill, 67-year-old Elgin Democrat was due to be sentenced on March 19 to a minimum of five years behind bars for sharing child porn online with other pedophiles.
But his attorney, Terry Ekl, says Farnham has terminal pulmonary fibrosis, bladder cancer and hepatitis C and is expected to die within four months. He filed court papers Friday asking U.S. District Judge Edmond Chang to postpone Farnham’s sentencing for six months — and to let Farnham stay at his home, under electronic monitoring, until he dies.
A doctor hired by Farnham, Karla Hudson, says Farnham won’t get the hospice care he needs in prison. Prison hospice beds are limited, and even if Farnham gets one, he will likely be denied the amount of painkillers he needs and will be kept from his family, Hudson wrote in a letter to the judge.
Farnham pleaded guilty in December, admitting he kept more than 2,700 illegal photos and videos on his work and home computers.
As Farnham was wheeled to a waiting car, a bystander mocked, "Thanks for hurting Elgin. Thanks for letting us down."
Farnham declined to comment.
"It's a truly sad case all the way around," Ekl said.
Part of his sentence also requires Farnham to pay a $30,000 fine. He remains on home confinement until he reports for prison May 19.

Canadian: Red States' Success in Equality, Higher Wages, Economic Growth and Housing Affordability Raping American Dream
Blue states, like California, New York and Illinois, whose economies turn on finance, trade and knowledge, are generally richer than red states. But red states, like Texas, Georgia and Utah, have done a better job over all of offering a higher standard of living relative to housing costs. That basic economic fact not only helps explain why the nation’s electoral map got so much redder in the November midterm elections, but also why America’s prosperity is in jeopardy.America's prosperity? Don't you mean that since we now have an anywhere economy Red States can compete against the crumbling depressing urban centers of decay?
I mean look at the list of problems.
Blue state knowledge economies are also extremely expensive to operate. Their innovative edge turns on a high-cost infrastructure of research universities and knowledge institutions — a portion of which demand public subsidy. Their size and density require expensive subway and transit systems to move people around. Blue state cities like New York and San Francisco are booming, but they are hampered by potholes and crumbling infrastructure, troubled public school systems, growing inequality and housing unaffordability, and entrenched poor populations, all of which mean higher public costs and higher tax burdens.Business doesn't have to put up with that anymore, people don't have to live like that anymore, flyover country can and does compete.
here are many red states like Utah, Arizona and Texas that are growing their tech and knowledge economies,So what you really have here is an article lamenting, How dare those illiterate uneducated Mississippi rednecks live better than we educated egalitarian overlords, We know what's best for you.
But if the liberal elites in the coasts know so well that Red State Success is a blight, its quite interesting because I've never heard of people running headstrong into a blight before.
If that’s the best argument you can come up with in opposition to living in Red States, we should all be packing our bags this morning to move to North Dakota.

Where's the Kaboom? Where's The Earth Shattering Kaboom?
The U.S. beefed up security at embassies ahead of the CIA interrogation report's release in anticipation of a violent reaction. But around the globe, the response was relatively mutedI've heard tell that some think the release of the CIA report was timed to block out the Gruber testimony.
I don't really know about that. What I do know is that at a time when they are pushing domestic civil unrest that has not occurred in decades, the left also sought to throw gasoline on the fire and up the ante to world chaos.
And then they are disappointed when said world chaos and hatred of America protests didn't occur and our facilities were not attacked.
Is it just me or does intent not seem to be to add fuel to the domestic unrest as well as spread that movement overseas.
WTF Who's side are they on anyway?

What Obama Really Thinks of You
Megyn Kelly on the Kelly File revealed a second video of ObamaCARE architect Jonathan Gruber calling the American voters stupid. This video is from October of last year and could have also been used in the mid-term elections this, but for whatever reason wasn’t. Here is the second video of Jonathan Gruber calling the American voter stupid. If you want to skip ahead in this video of Megyn Kelly’s earlier discussion, right the Gruber’s remarks, go to 2 minutes and 22 seconds.
I saw Mr. Gruber's MSNBC interview and all I can say is, Filed under Assmaggots.
At least this time we aren't stupid American voters. After a first video of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, talking about the bill being vague to fool stupid American Voters. And a second video outed last night by Megyn Kelly, below is video #3. This one from a speech at the University of Rhode Island in November 2012. This time he talks about then Senator, now Secretary of State John Kerry helping him take advantage of the economically unsophisticated American voter.
Which is why a Jury of American voters would probably send him to the gallows if they ever knew the truth. That the SUPPORTERS of Obamacare were intentionally misled, sold a bill of goods. That would neither help them nor anyone else.
Because the truth is that even though Mr. Gruber claims that if you get hit by a car you can go bankrupt, well no you can sue the driver. But even after Obamacare, even after you pay more, even after your subsidy, even after yout Obamacare plan pays you can still be bankrupt.
And the "evil insurance companies" still get theirs while you get the shaft.
So very clever.
As if filing bankruptcy and letting the provider claim the loss was a "worse" system.
Yes it was worse, because the healthcare system that sucked uop 18 percent of the economy will get just what they demanded from Obama to drop their opposition to Obamacare. Now they will get even more than 18% of the GDP and will get to keep more of that 18%. Obama sold you out to the healthcare industry and lied to YOU, telling you you would benefit when the only benefit was to the industry his wife Michelle worked in.

Sandcrawler PSA: Save the Trees
Many liberals are adamant there is no threat of voter fraud that justifies efforts to improve the integrity of elections. “There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud,” tweeted Donna Brazile, former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, this week. “It’s a big ass lie.”
James O’Keefe, the guerilla filmmaker who brought down the ACORN voter-registration fraudsters in 2010 and forced the resignation of NPR executives, politely disagrees. Today, he is releasing some new undercover footage that raises disturbing questions about ballot integrity in Colorado, the site of fiercely contested races for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, and the governorship. When he raised the issue of filling out some of the unused ballots that are mailed to every household in the state this month, he was told by Meredith Hicks, the director of Work for Progress, a liberal group funded by Democratic Super PACS.: “That is not even like lying or something, if someone throws out a ballot, like if you want to fill it out you should do it.” She then brazenly offered O’Keefe, disguised as a middle-aged college instructor, a job with her group.

Oh No We Didn't Underestimate The threat
Or why James Clapper should be fired!
ISW has predicted the rise of the Islamic State since 2012. Read our forecasts here.(pdf)
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) provides accurate geostrategic forecasts and advanced warning of growing threats. ISW analysts have accurately forecasted the political fragmentation of Iraq and the return of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), now the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), since 2011. ISW analysts have correctly predicted the origins, pathways, methods, and aims of ISIS’s return.
ISW conducts strategic forecasting as a core intellectual contribution to foreign policy. ISW’s leaders believe that strategic surprise can be averted by monitoring the trajectories of complex problems over time, even from unclassified information. Over the last 18 months, ISW has published a number of forecasts that anticipated the resurgence of AQI, the devolution of the Iraqi Security Forces, and the emergence of the ISIS campaign to control territory inside Iraq and Syria. This document is a compilation of forecasts made by ISW’s analysts that have come true. Strategic forecasting does not presume that complex situations will always unfold as predicted. ISW strives to apply concrete knowledge of the present in order to deliver insight about the future. ISW hopes that this policy makers can use these insights in order to take a proactive rather than a reactive posture to emerging crisis situations and prevent their escalation.Except that the guy doing the firing was also the one who directed him to say a lot of stupid stuff. I mean canning Clapper without Canning his boss is just, you know, pissing into the wind.
Or the President could just read Jawa Report.
A Google search for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, starting in Jan 2012 and ending in December 2013 yields over 10 pages of results.

Democrats Now Have to Win War They Wanted American Right to Lose
It is important to remember that this all could have been avoided with a status of forces agreement. There is no evidence currently available that would lead us to believe that ISIS would have been able to make such advances if a strong American presence in Iraq had been realized, hence, solidifying our wartime success.Its took the immanent extermination of an entire people for Democrats to finally do the right thing. But it remains to be seen if Obama will follow through to ISIS defeat or just screw around long enough to appear to have tried no to lose the war he's been trying so hard to lose.
In my view, the failure of securing victory of hard fought wars is entirely politically motivated. In both Vietnam and Iraq, we have largely unpopular wars that were won by republican leadership while the anti-war and anti-American left did whatever they could to undermine efforts leading us towards mission completion. The anti-war left is a large portion of the Democratic Party’s voting base, and appeasing these zealots is high priority for democrats seeking political office. The last thing the democrats can allow to happen is for republicans to win wars that they opposed. This would mean that Nixon was able to do what LBJ could not, and it would mean that George W. Bush lead our country to victory against an enemy the left said we could not defeat.
To put it clearly, democrats lose wars that have been won in order to appease their voting base. These actions will have dire consequences in the future, and may lead to even larger and costlier conflicts in that region.

As a Professor of Political Science, I Give Sen. Walsh an Automatic "F" for the Course
If you are one of my students and you plagiarize, I give you an automatic F. That's not an F for the paper, it's an automatic F for the entire course.
Since the reason you plagiarized was that you didn't do the work, then you would have gotten an F for the paper in the first place. Therefore, the punishment for stealing someone else's intellectual property and passing it off as your own has to be more severe than the consequences of not writing the paper in the first place. So, an automatic F.
And the fact that this was when Democratic Senator John Walsh of Montana was in a Master's degree program? That's worse. Much, much worse. You expect more from a graduate student. Not from a Democrat in Congress, no, but from a graduate student, yes.
The War College ought to rescind his degree.

Student in Organizing For America Voter Drive Behind Racist Anti-Semitic Incidents
I'm not really sure what a atheist/pacifist/environmentalist/libertarian socialist/consequentialist is but its pretty f*cked up:
One of the two students removed from Oberlin College earlier this year for allegedly circulating virulently racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages around campus is an ardent leftist and committed supporter of President Obama, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.Hating Jews and blaming it on wingers? Yes we can!
Dylan Bleier, one of the two students, hosted a voter registration drive in a Walmart parking lot sponsored by Organizing for Action, the community organizing project that advances the agenda of President Obama.
The Oberlin Police Department identified Bleier and his partner in the spree, Matt Alden, as two of the principal architects of a month-long spate of racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages at the small, private campus.
On his now-defunct LinkedIn page, Bleier noted that he was the founder and president of the Ithaca High School for Obama club. He also identified himself as a member of the Oberlin College Democrats.

Whittemore faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each count.[...]
Reid has not been accused of any wrongdoing and did not testify during the trial. He has said he was unaware of any potential problems with the money he received..

IRS Official's Lawyer: Lois Lerner Will Plead The Fifth Before The House Oversight Committee Hearing
[ZIP]WASHINGTON – A top IRS official in the division that reviews nonprofit groups will invoke the Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer questions before a House committee investigating the agency’s improper screening of conservative nonprofit groups.Her lawyer wants her excused from the hearing so as not to embarrass and burden her
Lois Lerner, the head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, won’t answer questions about what she knew about the improper screening – or why she didn’t reveal it to Congress, according to a letter from her defense lawyer, William W. Taylor 3rd.
Lerner was scheduled to appear before the House Oversight committee Wednesday
[LA Times]Taylor, a criminal defense attorney from the Washington firm of Zuckerman Spaeder, said that the Department of Justice has launched a criminal investigation, and that the House committee has asked Lerner to explain why she provided “false or misleading information” to the committee four times last year.Boo frickin hoo, make her plead the Fifth for all to see.
Since Lerner won’t answer questions, Taylor asked that she be excused from appearing, saying that would “have no purpose other than to embarrass or burden her.” There was no immediate word whether the committee will grant her request.
Watch the dems try to turn this into a 'war on women' thingy like they did with Susan Rice's Benghazi clusterfruck on the Sunday talk shows.
As far as the DOJ conducting an investigation, yeah just like how well they did with the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case and Fast and Furious gun running.
The corrupt investigating the corrupt.
If this happens, hello, special prosecutor, are you out there?

Anonymous U.S. Officials: FBI ID's Benghazi Suspects But No Arrests & Stuff
WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. officials say they have identified five men they believe might be behind the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year. The officials say they have enough evidence to justify seizing them by military force as suspected terrorists — but not enough proof to try them in a U.S. civilian court as the Obama administration prefers.AP better be careful as this appears to be another 'intel leak'. The underlined bold above isn't gonna go over too well with the Bronco administration.
So the officials say the men remain at large while the FBI gathers more evidence
We can't seize them as 'suspected terrorists'? Huh?
Nothing to see here people, move along. All of this is irrelevant.

I'm wondering what happened today at the classified briefing the Pentagon gave to the House Armed Services Committee.
