BUSTED: Dem Chair Caught In Bald-Faced Lie On National TV

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot. 

 I’ve begun to tire of her whoppers but they just keep coming, this one is just to classic.

 

Recent up close and personal photo of Debbie Wasserman Shultz, congenital liar.

I would seem doubtful that the dwindling base to which she panders would have the slightest understanding of what she is saying.  Sadly, they vote.

I’m also finding that her new picture is beginning to grow on me.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

  Front porch politics

Bummer. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacked The Examiner today on FOX News for ‘deliberately’ misquoting her… But, she didn’t count on them having the audio to back up their report.

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz claimed on Monday that Israel’s ambassador to the United States had accused Republicans of being “dangerous” to Israel.
Last night on FOX she denied she said it.
It was a bald-faced lie

 

“From where do they come?

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot

A safe bet would be the planet Uranus!  At least we know that’s where they keep their heads.

We have come to expect the incomprehensible from DNC chair, Debbie Wasserman Shultz.

Rob Reiner, aka “Meat Head” as Caroll O’Connor dubbed him so well in the TV hit “All in the Family.”

Below Archie displays the best way to talk with a liberal. Grab them by the throat and squeeze until they shut up.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

A Shrink Asks: What’s Wrong with Obama?

By Robin of Berkeley

American Thinker

Ok folks, who you going to trust, a recovering liberal psychiatrist from Berkley or me?     Be clear now, she still recovering and probably incapable of using the P word which I’ve suggested may in fact be more appropriate. I’m going to write her and get her take.  You know I will………………………Rational thoughts while observing a national charade, I’m J.C.

So what is the matter with Obama? Conservatives have been asking this question for some time. I’ve written a number of articles trying to solve the mystery.

Even some liberals are starting to wonder. James Carville railed about Obama’s blasé attitude after the catastrophic oil spill. The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd revamped Obama’s “Yes We Can” motto into “Will We Ever?”

The liberal women of the TV show “The View” have expressed sympathy for Michelle Obama’s living with a man so out of touch. Peggy Noonan, hardly a vehement Obama foe,  recently pronounced him disconnected.
Obama’s odd mannerisms intrigue a psychotherapist like me. He also presents a serious diagnostic challenge.

Why Are Americans Moving to Mexico?

Mexico Drug War Doesn’t Stop Americans From Moving South of the Border

Hey get a jump, they will eventually be owning the US anyway. Rational thoughts while observing the passing charade, I’m J.C.

Bill Engle is outside, sweating in work clothes while he oversees renovations to his colonial house in Mérida, Mexico. It sits on a street dubbed “Gringo Gulch,” a pretty row of baby blue, violet, and mustard facades where expatriates outnumber Mexicans.

Tourists enjoy the beach at the resort city of Cancun, Mexico in this photo taken on June 12, 2009. In towns far from the US border such as Mérida, Mexico’s drug wars seem like another world. In fact, according to a recent survey by the International Community Foundation, violence reduced the frequency or duration of trips to Mexico for only 7 percent of American retirees who live or travel frequently to Mexico.

Graham blasts Axelrod: ‘Tired of this crap’

The Hill

By Eric Zimmermann

Graham continues to befuddle, his voting record is checkered, liked him in the past no longer sure.  Will post some of his votes tomorrow. Random thoughts while watching the passing parade, J.C.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was not happy with David Axelrod’s dismissal of Republican healthcare arguments this morning, calling it “crap.”

It’s RINO Season Lindsey and you just may go down with the useless

Appearing before Graham on ABC’s “This Week,” Axelrod had brushed off Sen. Scott Brown’s (R-Mass.) criticism of healthcare reform, saying that Brown had voted for a very similar package for his home state of Massachusetts.

“Senator Brown comes from a state that has a healthcare plan that’s similar to the one we’re trying to enact here,” Axelrod said. “We’re just trying to give the rest of America the same opportunities that the people of Massachusetts have.”

That argument rubbed Graham the wrong way.

“The American people are getting tired of this crap,” Graham said of Axelrod’s comments. “No way in the world is what they did in Massachusetts like what we’re about to do in Washington.”

The reform package passed in Massachusetts did include a health insurance exchange and individual mandates, similar to what Democrats have proposed on the naitonal level. But Graham said the key differences lie in how the package was paid for and what the secondary effects would be.

“They didn’t cut Medicare when they passed the bill in Massachusetts,” Graham said. “They didn’t raise $500 billion on the American people when they passed the bill in Massachusetts.” That argument rubbed Graham the wrong way.

Obama Supports DNA Sampling Upon Arrest

Not so fast Mr Constitutional Law Professor, make that senior lecture, ergo, that’s lawyer speak for teaching assistant.  Could it be that the  you, an alleged usurper,  has forgotten if you ever knew it, that under the presumption of innocence until proven guilty is the most basic tenant in our system of justice.  Yes, it’s not codified in the Constitution per se but goes back to English Common Law.

So this may be a stretch Mr. President, but once again you are trying to desecrate the Constitution.  When you find a person guilty then you take their DNA.  You are not above the law Mr. President, you will be eventually be confronted with your failure of your sworn oath to Protect the Constitution of the United States from all enemy’s foreign and domestic.

Shouldn’t your number one focus be on jobs, the deficit, and gutting useless government spending.  That’s right you are not a fan of recent political economic models, put into place that straightened thing relative quickly  ended anxiety, stress,  home foreclosures, unemployment It is doubtful  your ill-conceived plan.  The never have, just raise taxes, and increase the deficit.

One day Mr. President it may be you who is required to give the DNA.  In this case, it makes no difference, the majority of Americans already know you are guilty. Random thoughts while observing the ‘Chosen One’ blind to the terribly obvious, J.C.

Many people believe the people with whom you surround yourself meet the latter definition. Random thoughts

Innocent Until Proven Guilty

First, it should be pointed out that if you did it, you’re guilty, no matter what. So you’re not innocent unless you’re truly innocent. However, our system presumes innocence, which means that legally speaking, even the obviously guilty are treated as though they are innocent, until they are proven otherwise.

The concept of the presumption of innocence is one of the most basic in our system of justice. However, in so many words, it is not codified in the text of the Constitution. This basic right comes to us, like many things, from English jurisprudence, and has been a part of that system for so long, that it is considered common law. The concept is embodied in several provisions of the Constitution, however, such as the right to remain silent and the right to a juryUS Constitution on line:

screen-shot-2010-03-10-at-33416-pmJosh Gerstein over at Politico sent Threat Level his piece underscoring once again President Barack Obama is not the civil-liberties knight in shining armor many were expecting.

Gerstein posts a televised interview of Obama and John Walsh of America’s Most Wanted. The nation’s chief executive extols the virtues of mandatory DNA testing of Americans upon arrest, even absent charges or a conviction. Obama said, “It’s the right thing to do” to “tighten the grip around folks” who commit crime.

When it comes to civil liberties, the Obama administration has come under fire for often mirroring his predecessor’s practices surrounding state secrets, the Patriot Act and domestic spying. There’s also Gitmo, Jay Bybee and John Yoo.

Now there’s DNA sampling. Obama told Walsh he supported the federal government, as well as the 18 states that have varying laws requiring compulsory DNA sampling of individuals upon an arrest for crimes ranging from misdemeanors to felonies. The data is lodged in state and federal databases, and has fostered as many as 200 arrests nationwide, Walsh said.

The American Civil Liberties Union claims DNA sampling is different from mandatory, upon-arrest fingerprinting that has been standard practice in the United States for decades.

A fingerprint, the group says, reveals nothing more than a person’s identity. But much can be learned from a DNA sample, which codes a person’s family ties, some health risks, and, according to some, can predict a propensity for violence.

The ACLU is suing California to block its voter-approved measure requiring saliva sampling of people picked up on felony charges. Authorities in the Golden State are allowed to conduct so-called “familial searching” — when a genetic sample does not directly match another, authorities start investigating people with closely matched DNA in hopes of finding leads to the perpetrator.

Do you wonder whether DNA sampling is legal?

The courts have already upheld DNA sampling of convicted felons, based on the theory that the convicted have fewer privacy rights. The U.S. Supreme Court has held that when conducting intrusions of the body during an investigation, the police need so-called “exigent circumstances” or a warrant. That alcohol evaporates in the blood stream is the exigent circumstance to draw blood from a suspected drunk driver without a warrant.

DEMOCRATIC PROMISE #76: We’ll Be More Honest, Open, and Ethical Than Republicans Were
Promise: “This leadership team will create the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history” – Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Press Release, November 16, 2006

Broken Promise: “Pelosi and other Democrats were on shaky ground with their continuing claims that they are running the House with what she termed ‘great openness and transparency.’ …[B]efore Democrats stake their claims for charting a ‘new direction,’ they should deliver on some of their earlier rhetorical boasts.” – “Majority Ruling,” CongressDaily PM, March 30, 2007

Broken Promise: “It’s a familiar backpedaling pattern emerging early in the new Democratic-controlled Congress. From lobbying reforms to anti-corruption proposals to curbing earmarks, Democratic lawmakers who railed against Republican corruption a year ago have flinched from imposing the harshest standards on themselves.” – “Congress’ Reform Promises Fizzle,” The Politico, May 21, 2007

DEMOCRATIC PROMISE #77: Promptly Name Members to the Ethics Pool
Promise: “At the beginning of a Congress, the Speaker or his designee and the Minority Leader or his designee each shall name 10 Members, Delegates, or the Resident Commissioner from his respective party who are not members of the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct to be available to serve on investigative subcommittees of that committee during that Congress.” – Democrats’ House Rules Package, Clause 5 of rule 10

Broken Promise: “Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has yet to name for this Congress the Democrats’ 10 member ‘ethics pool’ – the group of Members preselected by their respective party leaders to serve on investigative subcommittees as they are needed.” – “No Sign of Life in Jefferson Ethics Probe,” Roll Call, May 24, 2007

DEMOCRATIC PROMISE #78: No Swapping of Earmarks for Votes
Promise: “A Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner may not condition the inclusion of language to provide funding for a congressional earmark, a limited tax benefit, or a limited tariff benefit in any bill or joint resolution (or an accompanying report) or in any conference report on a bill or joint resolution (including an accompanying joining explanatory statement of managers) on any vote cast by another Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner.” – Democrats’ House Rules Package, Clause 16 of Rule 23

Promise: “These strong [ethics] rules are significant steps toward honest leadership; enforcing these rules is critical to ensuring every Member of Congress lives up to the highest ethical standard.” – Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Press Release, January 31, 2007

Broken Promise: “But Murtha went over to the Republican side of the aisle and told Rogers that he would never, ever get another earmark in the Defense Appropriations bill. This was a direct violation of rules Democrats sponsored and promoted.” – “Names in the News Can Be Divided Into Heroes and Villains,” Roll Call Column by Norman Ornstein, May 22, 2007. 218 Democrats voted to excuse Rep. Murtha’s ethics violation and shield him from an official House reprimand. – Roll Call Vote #402, H.Res. 428

DEMOCRATIC PROMISE #79: “Drain the Swamp”
Promise: “In an election in which exit polls identified corruption as the No. 1 voting issue and Washington’s biggest corruption scandal involved lobbying, Democrats won in part by promising to curtail K Street’s excesses. Pelosi has said her first act as Speaker of the House in January will be to pass new rules limiting contact between lobbyists and lawmakers.” – “When the Democrats Take Back K Street,” Time, December 4, 2006

Broken Promise: “Now that they are running things, many Democrats want to keep the big campaign donations and lavish parties that lobbyists put together for them. They’re also having second thoughts about having to wait an extra year before they can become high-paid lobbyists themselves should they retire or be defeated at the polls.” – “Lobbying Reform Losing Steam in House,” Associated Press, May 11, 2007

DEMOCRATIC PROMISE #80: Promote High Ethical Standards
Promise: “Democrats will exercise better leadership in the new Congress and work to raise the standard of ethics in this body.” – Majority Whip-Elect James Clyburn (D-SC), Press Release, December 8, 2006

Broken Promise: Majority Whip Clyburn voted “NO” on H.Res. 452, a resolution to force ethics committee action on Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA) after his indictment on charges that include racketeering, money laundering, and obstruction of justice. – Roll call Vote #430 on H.Res. 452, June 5, 2007

DEMOCRATIC PROMISE #81: Restore Integrity to the House Ethics Committee
Promise: On naming Rep. Michael Doyle (D-PA) to the House Ethics Committee: “With [his] commitment to the highest ethical standard, [Rep. Doyle] will serve with integrity, building on our bipartisan efforts to restore accountability, honesty, and openness to the House of Representatives.” – Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Press Release, February 8, 2007

Broken Promise: A short time after being named by Speaker Pelosi to serve on the House Ethics Committee, Rep. Doyle voted to shield Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) from an official House reprimand after Murtha violated House rules. Other Ethics Committee members voted “present” to ensure their impartiality should the Committee officially investigate the matter. – Roll Call Vote #402 on H.Res. 428. Speaker Pelosi also appointed Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) to the House “ethics pool” concerning the Ethics Committee’s investigation into alleged crimes by Rep. William Jefferson (D-LA), despite the fact that Rep. Ellison voted against allowing the Ethics Committee’s investigation of Rep. Jefferson to resume. – Roll call Vote #430 on H.Res. 452, June 5, 2007

DEMOCRATIC PROMISE #82: Close the Revolving Door
Promise: “Close the revolving door between the Congress and lobbying firms by doubling (from one year to two) the cooling-off period during which lawmakers, senior Congressional staff, and Executive Branch officials are prohibited from lobbying their former offices.” – Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) “A New Direction For America,” Page 22

Broken Promise: “The House Judiciary Committee yesterday stripped from the lobbying reform bill a proposal to limit the lobbying activity of congressional officials once they enter the private sector and soundly defeated two other top priorities of government watchdog groups. Several of the reforms Democrats voted to kill were part of the 2006 Honest Leadership and Open Government Act that Democrats made a centerpiece of their campaign message last year.” – “Panel Softens Lobbying Bill Provisions,” The Hill, May 17, 2007

DEMOCRATIC PROMISE #83: Sever Links Between Lobbyists & Legislation
Promise: “That’s why we need a new direction here. That’s why we must sever the link between lobbyists and legislation so that we’re here for the people’s interests, not the special interests.” – Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Press Conference, September 29, 2006

Promise: “We are committed to immediate change to lead this country in a new direction, to put an end to business as usual, and to make certain this nation’s leaders serve the people’s interests, not special interests.” – Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) “A New Direction for America,” Page 21

Broken Promise: “[Passage of the card check bill] is clearly a payoff for big labor’s help in the election.” – “Don’t Take Secret Ballots Away From Workers,” Detroit News Editorial, December 26, 2006

Broken Promise: “The minimum wage bill at the top of the Democrats’ agenda was, in the words of Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, simply ‘a matter of doing what’s right, what’s just and what’s fair’ – what’s right, just and fair, that is, as long as employees affected don’t work for a company in Pelosi’s congressional district. The minimum wage bill passed by the House last week curiously exempts American Samoa, where thousands of people are employed in a packing plant owned by Del Monte Corp., parent of StarKist Tuna. Del Monte just happens to be headquartered in Pelosi’s San Francisco.” – “Blundered Hours,” Investor’s Business Daily Editorial, January 16, 2007
