Tuesday, June 3, 2008

St. Paul, Minnesota (as prepared for delivery)


Tonight, after fifty-four hard-fought contests, our primary season has finally come to an end.

Sixteen months have passed since we first stood together on the steps of the Old State Capitol in Springfield, Illinois. Thousands of miles have been traveled. Millions of voices have been heard. And because of what you said -- because you decided that change must come to Washington; because you believed that this year must be different than all the rest; because you chose to listen not to your doubts or your fears but to your greatest hopes and highest aspirations, tonight we mark the end of one historic journey with the beginning of another -- a journey that will bring a new and better day to America. Tonight, I can stand before you and say that I will be the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

I want to thank every American who stood with us over the course of this campaign -- through the good days and the bad; from the snows of Cedar Rapids to the sunshine of Sioux Falls. And tonight I also want to thank the men and woman who took this journey with me as fellow candidates for President.

At this defining moment for our nation, we should be proud that our party put forth one of the most talented, qualified field of individuals ever to run for this office. I have not just competed with them as rivals, I have learned from them as friends, as public servants, and as patriots who love America and are willing to work tirelessly to make this country better. They are leaders of this party, and leaders that America will turn to for years to come.

That is particularly true for the candidate who has traveled further on this journey than anyone else. Senator Hillary Clinton has made history in this campaign not just because she's a woman who has done what no woman has done before, but because she's a leader who inspires millions of Americans with her strength, her courage, and her commitment to the causes that brought us here tonight.

We've certainly had our differences over the last sixteen months. But as someone who's shared a stage with her many times, I can tell you that what gets Hillary Clinton up in the morning -- even in the face of tough odds -- is exactly what sent her and Bill Clinton to sign up for their first campaign in Texas all those years ago; what sent her to work at the Children's Defense Fund and made her fight for health care as First Lady; what led her to the United States Senate and fueled her barrier-breaking campaign for the presidency -- an unyielding desire to improve the lives of ordinary Americans, no matter how difficult the fight may be. And you can rest assured that when we finally win the battle for universal health care in this country, she will be central to that victory. When we transform our energy policy and lift our children out of poverty, it will be because she worked to help make it happen. Our party and our country are better off because of her, and I am a better candidate for having had the honor to compete with Hillary Rodham Clinton.

There are those who say that this primary has somehow left us weaker and more divided. Well I say that because of this primary, there are millions of Americans who have cast their ballot for the very first time. There are Independents and Republicans who understand that this election isn't just about the party in charge of Washington, it's about the need to change Washington.Ê There are young people, and African-Americans, and Latinos, and women of all ages who have voted in numbers that have broken records and inspired a nation.

All of you chose to support a candidate you believe in deeply. But at the end of the day, we aren't the reason you came out and waited in lines that stretched block after block to make your voice heard. You didn't do that because of me or Senator Clinton or anyone else. You did it because you know in your hearts that at this moment -- a moment that will define a generation -- we cannot afford to keep doing what we've been doing. We owe our children a better future. We owe our country a better future. And for all those who dream of that future tonight, I say -- let us begin the work together. Let us unite in common effort to chart a new course for America.

In just a few short months, the Republican Party will arrive in St. Paul with a very different agenda. They will come here to nominate John McCain, a man who has served this country heroically. I honor that service, and I respect his many accomplishments, even if he chooses to deny mine. My differences with him are not personal; they are with the policies he has proposed in this campaign.

Because while John McCain can legitimately tout moments of independence from his party in the past, such independence has not been the hallmark of his presidential campaign.

It's not change when John McCain decided to stand with George Bush ninety-five percent of the time, as he did in the Senate last year.

It's not change when he offers four more years of Bush economic policies that have failed to create well-paying jobs, or insure our workers, or help Americans afford the skyrocketing cost of college -- policies that have lowered the real incomes of the average American family, widened the gap between Wall Street and Main Street, and left our children with a mountain of debt.ÊÊÊ

And it's not change when he promises to continue a policy in Iraq that asks everything of our brave men and women in uniform and nothing of Iraqi politicians -- a policy where all we look for are reasons to stay in Iraq, while we spend billions of dollars a month on a war that isn't making the American people any safer.

So I'll say this -- there are many words to describe John McCain's attempt to pass off his embrace of George Bush's policies as bipartisan and new. But change is not one of them.

Change is a foreign policy that doesn't begin and end with a war that should've never been authorized and never been waged. I won't stand here and pretend that there are many good options left in Iraq, but what's not an option is leaving our troops in that country for the next hundred years -- especially at a time when our military is overstretched, our nation is isolated, and nearly every other threat to America is being ignored.

We must be as careful getting out of Iraq as we were careless getting in - but start leaving we must. It's time for Iraqis to take responsibility for their future. It's time to rebuild our military and give our veterans the care they need and the benefits they deserve when they come home. It's time to refocus our efforts on al Qaeda's leadership and Afghanistan, and rally the world against the common threats of the 21st century -- terrorism and nuclear weapons; climate change and poverty; genocide and disease. That's what change is.

Change is realizing that meeting today's threats requires not just our firepower, but the power of our diplomacy -- tough, direct diplomacy where the President of the United States isn't afraid to let any petty dictator know where America stands and what we stand for. We must once again have the courage and conviction to lead the free world. That is the legacy of Roosevelt, and Truman, and Kennedy. That's what the American people want. That's what change is.Ê

Change is building an economy that rewards not just wealth, but the work and workers who created it. It's understanding that the struggles facing working families can't be solved by spending billions of dollars on more tax breaks for big corporations and wealthy CEOs, but by giving a the middle-class a tax break, and investing in our crumbling infrastructure, and transforming how we use energy, and improving our schools, and renewing our commitment to science and innovation. It's understanding that fiscal responsibility and shared prosperity can go hand-in-hand, as they did when Bill Clinton was President.

John McCain has spent a lot of time talking about trips to Iraq in the last few weeks, but maybe if he spent some time taking trips to the cities and towns that have been hardest hit by this economy -- cities in Michigan, and Ohio, and right here in Minnesota -- he'd understand the kind of change that people are looking for.

Maybe if he went to Iowa and met the student who works the night shift after a full day of class and still can't pay the medical bills for a sister who's ill, he'd understand that she can't afford four more years of a health care plan that only takes care of the healthy and wealthy. She needs us to pass health care plan that guarantees insurance to every American who wants it and brings down premiums for every family who needs it. That's the change we need.

Maybe if he went to Pennsylvania and met the man who lost his job but can't even afford the gas to drive around and look for a new one, he'd understand that we can't afford four more years of our addiction to oil from dictators. That man needs us to pass an energy policy that works with automakers to raise fuel standards, and makes corporations pay for their pollution, and oil companies invest their record profits in a clean energy future -- an energy policy that will create millions of new jobs that pay well and can't be outsourced. That's the change we need.

And maybe if he spent some time in the schools of South Carolina or St. Paul or where he spoke tonight in New Orleans, he'd understand that we can't afford to leave the money behind for No Child Left Behind; that we owe it to our children to invest in early childhood education; to recruit an army of new teachers and give them better pay and more support; to finally decide that in this global economy, the chance to get a college education should not be a privilege for the wealthy few, but the birthright of every American. That's the change we need in America. That's why I'm running for President.

The other side will come here in September and offer a very different set of policies and positions, and that is a debate I look forward to. It is a debate the American people deserve. But what you don't deserve is another election that's governed by fear, and innuendo, and division. What you won't hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge, and patriotism as a bludgeon -- that sees our opponents not as competitors to challenge, but enemies to demonize. Because we may call ourselves Democrats and Republicans, but we are Americans first. We are always Americans first.

Despite what the good Senator from Arizona said tonight, I have seen people of differing views and opinions find common cause many times during my two decades in public life, and I have brought many together myself. I've walked arm-in-arm with community leaders on the South Side of Chicago and watched tensions fade as black, white, and Latino fought together for good jobs and good schools. I've sat across the table from law enforcement and civil rights advocates to reform a criminal justice system that sent thirteen innocent people to death row. And I've worked with friends in the other party to provide more children with health insurance and more working families with a tax break; to curb the spread of nuclear weapons and ensure that the American people know where their tax dollars are being spent; and to reduce the influence of lobbyists who have all too often set the agenda in Washington.

In our country, I have found that this cooperation happens not because we agree on everything, but because behind all the labels and false divisions and categories that define us; beyond all the petty bickering and point-scoring in Washington, Americans are a decent, generous, compassionate people, united by common challenges and common hopes. And every so often, there are moments which call on that fundamental goodness to make this country great again.

So it was for that band of patriots who declared in a Philadelphia hall the formation of a more perfect union; and for all those who gave on the fields of Gettysburg and Antietam their last full measure of devotion to save that same union.

So it was for the Greatest Generation that conquered fear itself, and liberated a continent from tyranny, and made this country home to untold opportunity and prosperity.

So it was for the workers who stood out on the picket lines; the women who shattered glass ceilings; the children who braved a Selma bridge for freedom's cause.

So it has been for every generation that faced down the greatest challenges and the most improbable odds to leave their children a world that's better, and kinder, and more just.

And so it must be for us.

America, this is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page on the policies of the past. Our time to bring new energy and new ideas to the challenges we face. Our time to offer a new direction for the country we love.

The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment -- this was the time -- when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.

U.S. Economy, Bottom of the Ninth and Way Behind:

By Mike Folkerth


Good Morning Middle America, your King of Simple News is on the air. Well…at least on the computer.



It seems the airlines are poised to lose a few billion both in 2008 and 2009 after which they expect things to get a lot worse. In a bold cost cutting move, peanuts and pretzels will no longer be available. Beer, wine and soft drinks will remain available for purchase however dollar slots will placed on the restroom doors. After all, these are no-frill flights.



In other news, the investment banks are sinking faster than Hillary Clinton’s chances of becoming Queen Mother. Even with their new access to the once hands-off money of the Federal Reserve, the banks are proving what they have told you for years; you can’t borrow your way out of debt.



If you are looking for a career change, Wall Street is looking for some new CEOs to replace the brilliant multimillion dollar men who have lost multibillion dollars for the stockholders. Amazin’ isn’t it, how a person can be worth millions one day and told to get their hat the next? It’s all in the timing of when these people enter the current round of the exponential growth scam that counts. It is luck ya know? Lucky is better than good any time.



The Dow Jones remains some 1800 points off its high but better times are coming, at least that’s the latest from the fat cats of Wall Street.



The whole thing is a charade. The banking system has about run its gamut. All the money has gravitated to the top players and Middle America is reaching the point of no longer having any money to be scammed out of. So, move along, nothing to see here, these people are being phased out in favor of the improved cheap foreign labor models.



Back in the 1950s, it was touted that technology and increased productivity would allow Americans to actually reduce working hours and live a life of leisure. That we could provide all that we need in so little time that the work week would be shortened.



Whoever made those statements didn’t understand our system of exponential growth. If you can make more, we can sell more. If we can sell more, we can make more money. So how about this, work more hours with increased productivity and that creates more money for the stockholders and management until all of the natural resources are gone. But why worry about resources, technology will replace them; not.



And so went America right up until today. Rather than realize the life of leisure that was promised in the 1950s, Americans now put in more hours at work than any place on earth. We have now reached the enviable position of the maximum possible production and debt load of a human being. How fun.



It’s difficult to get our minds around some common realities after being taught differently for a couple of hundred years, but trust me, M. King Hubbert knew of what he spoke when he said that a non-catastrophic solution was impossible unless society is made stable.

Mr. Hubbert went on to say that this means abandoning two axioms of our culture…the work ethic and the idea that growth is the normal state of affairs. Dr. Hubbert challenged the fixation on exponential growth of the past two centuries mathematically (and could that guy do math or what?) as being the opposite of the normal situation.



As a whole, I don’t believe that our society will educate themselves to the realities of resource depletion or the consequences of pursuing growth in a finite world until far too late. Or even that there is a better and simpler life available to them here and now. All it takes is thought and action. There is currently no law against common sense.

Or even that there is a better and simpler life available to them here and now. All it takes is thought and action. There is currently no law against common sense."

That is the basic fault-line of socialist thought. There is this unjustified belief that no matter what experience tells us, there is a zero-sum pie that describes reality. No matter that economies have grown through the years, the basic implication is that if I make more money here, then there is someone in Zimbabwe or Uzbekistan that somehow makes less money as a result.

There is a point of reality here, though, that has nothing to do with the zero-sum pie. The US must get rid of these eco-idiots and decide that we can actually make something of our own natural resources. It would make us very happy to be rid of being dependent on foreign dictators for our energy resources. It has everything to do with using what this idiot wants to outlaw, and use what the Americans have a lot of; namely, common sense.

As a globalist marxist, this idiot wants a law against the very thing that has made lives sensible...common sense.

What an elitist snob. I bet HE is not living in some hovel in Mexico trying to get into this country because we have jobs and an economy. He would likely argue that Mexico does not have the ability to do that. HOGWASH.

Ask eastern Europe how much they loved collectivism, and why are they doing so much better without it? How is it that nations that have free trade, including the so-called Communist Chinese that have thrown off most of Marxism, have done so much better?

Even dictatorships that allow for some free trade begin to see the benefits.

You know Blooger, I could actually see a lot of benefit from an Obama presidency, as long as he did not have the ability to promote raw socialism. But I cannot see where the same government that has bankrupted the social security can do anything with the medical system but ruin what we have. The same government that has ruined the education system is going to somehow make more government control a better thing now?

I think not.

Those that oppose the leftists agenda are going to have to run the gambit of the propaganda from the left, even if it means that we are going to have to listen to the morons that are going to say that we lie.

Our first affirmative action president. They only had to "lower the delegate count" bar for half of Michigan and Florida's voters and discriminate/disenfranchise a million voters to allow Obama secure the nomination.

Had he been a white man, he would have had to slug it out at the convention.

But hey, it's the affirmative action party. What can you expect... democracy? LOL!

I wonder how many voters they'll have to discriminate against/ disenfranchise in 2012 to give a woman a chance to be president. Three million? Five million?

And then a "latino". twenty million? Fifty million?

They are "progressives" after all. They progress all the way from democracy to tyranny.

booger's projecting.

First of all, in his opening comment at the top, he/she said "time for the A-dult team."

Booger knows damn well that after 2000, the new Bush Adminstration was hailed as "adults" following on the heels of the high school mentalities of the Clinton era.

To say it's "Time for the A-dult team" in consideration of that history betrays nothing more than petty vindictiveness.

Furthermore, booger's compulsion to conflate the adolescent television series A-Team (with Mr. T playing a black character named "Barackus"/Barack--get it?) with "adult" ("A-dult Team) to make some kind of point about maturity is pathetically ironic.

Also, this:

"...the last things these morons care about is democracy...in fact, they hate it."

That on the heels of fj's comments about the decidedly un--or half-- democratic remedy for the Florida and Michigan votes.

And that not too long after the meltdown over W.'s 2004 victory which garnered the most popular votes in the history of democracy.

Booger's crowd (and in all likelihood booger, too) shamelessly called for the disenfranchisment of the "Red State voters"--i.e. southern Evangelicals--who helped push Bush over the top (along with the swollen numbers in every other demographic), supposedly because they "love Democracy."

To further illustrate how utterly bereft of principle they are and change their minds with the winds of opportunity, they had another collective breakdown after 2000, damning the Constitutional system of electoral votes of our democratic republic and instead calling for direct vote by plebiscite to validate Gore as the "true" winner.

Now they do a 90 degree about-face and validate Obama by his "electoral" delegate lead over Hillary's lead in the popular vote.

They're depraved.

Depraved and CORRUPT, right booger?

A prominent fundraiser for Sen. Barack Obama and Gov. Rod Blagojevich was convicted Wednesday of fraud and money laundering after a high-profile federal trial provided an unusually detailed glimpse of the pay-to-play politics that has made Illinois infamous.

Antoin "Tony" Rezko, 52, showed no emotion as the jury delivered a mixed verdict that found him guilty of scheming with the government's star witness to get kickbacks out of money management firms wanting state business, but acquitted him of charges that included attempted extortion.


Funny, isn't it, how they held the Rezko verdict till the day AFTER Obama secured the nomination.

We should privatize the sanctions against Iran by launching a worldwide divestment campaign. …Years ago, the moral clarity and conviction of civilized nations came together in a divestment campaign against South Africa, helping to rid that nation of the evil of apartheid. In our day, we must use that same power and moral conviction against the regime in Iran, and help to safeguard the people of Israel and the peace of the world.
-John McCain, June 2008

Let's see how it stands up to his record:


Years ago, McCain lacked the “moral clarity and conviction” to consistently support divestment from South Africa.. Despite voting to override President Reagan’s veto of a bill imposing economic sanctions against South Africa in 1986, McCain voted against sanctions on at least six other occasions:

– 1985: Voted To Recommit Anti-Apartheid Act To Foreign Affairs Committee Postponing Sanctions Against South Africa: McCain voted to postpone for one year the imposition of any sanctions against South Africa, permitting the president to waive the sanctions if he determined that the African National Congress had not renounced violence. [HR 1460, Vote 129, 6/5/85, Failed 139-282, D 7-238; R 132-44; I 0-0]

– 1985: Voted To Allow U.S. Firms Continue Investing In South Africa: McCain voted to let U.S. firms continue investing in South Africa if their units comply with a code of worker rights. [HR 1460, Vote 110, 5/21/85, Failed 148-256, D 3-227; R 145-29; I 0-0]

– 1985: Voted Against Requiring Immediate Withdrawal Of U.S.. Investment From South Africa: McCain voted against imposing a total ban on U.S. exports to South Africa. [HR 1460, Vote 128, 6/5/85, Failed 77-345, D 77-167; R 0-178; I 0-0]

– 1985: Voted Against Establishing A Commission To Study Apartheid In South Africa And To Recommend Sanctions: McCain voted against establishing a commission to study apartheid in South Africa and to recommend what sanctions the United States should impose on the government. [HR 1460, Vote 126, 6/5/85, Failed 108-310, D 6-235; R 102-75; I 0-0]

– 1985: Voted Against Imposing Sanctions Against South Africa: McCain voted against imposing sanctions immediately against South Africa. [HR 1460, Vote 130, 6/5/85, Passed 295-127, D 239-6; R 56-121; I 0-0]

– 1986: Voted Against Considering Imposing Economic Sanctions Against South Africa: McCain voted against providing for House floor consideration of the bill to impose economic sanctions against South Africa. [HR 4868, Vote 159, 6/18/86, Passed 286-127, D 238-4; R 48-123; I 0-0]

I just heard about it from you.

Simian lied:

"hahahaha...the bush morons still want to use the adult thing?!! After the biggest string of disasters, moron mistakes, perverts and corruption literally in history??!!"

That would be the Clinton era, liar.

"We can match you ten to one on any list of pervs or crooks, you stupid fruitcake...are you really ignorant enough not to know that?"

He's lying. That list that's making the rounds is cooked and/or misleading.

Look at the criminal records in the House of Representatives. Then see how many of then are R or D.

nisi asked:

"Why aren't you people signing up in droves to take part in what
you say is a necessary and noble effort?"

That's a tired old question that was making the rounds in 2004, with that sassy, arms-akimboed, faux-clever "If you think it's the right thing to do, why aren't you enlisting, hm?" attitude.

It's such a no-brainer type of question that it catches one off guard and causes momentary speechlessness, which is smugly interpreted as victory.

It has been shut down though, for the silliness that it is, years ago, and is only heard now sporadically by those way behind the curve.

Like nisi.

Listen carefully, nisi:

I assume (though I could be wrong) that you were--at the very least-- all for a military response to 9/11as long as it was limited to it being a vindictive manhunt after bin Laden, using the U.S. armed forces as a lynchmob to find him, string him up, and come home, leaving the status quo intact, that being, presumably, the "necessary" and "noble" response.

If so, would you have enlisted to take part in that vengeful posse?

Did you go to Afghanistan?

Or perhaps you think that "war is never the answer"?

"Thank goodness for the conviction of Tony Rezko. Rezko raised much money for many top Republicans."

Not as much as Ken Lay did for top Democrats.

Remember him?

Yeah, that's right, "Bush's pal," except that was dropped real quick when it was learned how fond Democrats were of him.

Yes, please do...we gave you our list -- all confirmable -- now, let's see yours. Oh, here's a nice compact one just dealing with one category...a GOPerv specialty, sex crimes...all too often with minors!! Is your GOP congressman on here?

Are ytou aware of how many Republicans have been charged with sex related crimes?
A lot of these have to with children... Hopefully these hypocrites will be exposed for who they really are. If you're a Republican, why can't you support equality and still be a conservative/republican? what does one have to do with the other?

Man, it'd be nice to get rid of this louse:

The terrific polling news just keeps right on coming this week. Look at the latest independent poll from Kentucky.

Kentucky Senate Poll
Bruce Lunsford (D) 49%
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R) 44%


Not that it really matters too much...they'll probably catch him with a (billy) goat soon enough anyway. They all have such ishy issues!

booger sneered:

"Yeah, unfortunately we do remember Ken Lay...GW's top donor...you incredibly stupid ass."

Pay attention, Einstein. The Ken Lay connection with Bush was dropped like a hot potato after it was realized that a whole bunch of top ranking Democrats were playing pocket pool with him.

Also, buffo, to say that you can't support a war unless you soldier up for it is absurd.

Also, numbskull, the reenlistment rate for service in Iraq hit record highs.

Don't presume to speak on behalf of American soldiers, who you undoubtedly have characterized as "terrorists" at one time or another (if not currently holding on to that belief).

They voted in high numbers for W. in 2000 and 2004, and you can be damn sure they'll vote for McCain in November, despite your sorry efforts to slander him as a traitorous Manchurian Candidate.

Furthermore, as Alice pointed out earlier, over 95% of convicted felons are registered Democrats.

And, again, as I requested, look at which party in the House of Representatives has the most convicted criminals in their ranks.

It is the Democrats who perennially try to give voting rights to felons (and prisoners).

It is the DNC who "legalized" the status of hordes of illegal aliens in 1996 just in time for them to vote for Clinton (who still didn't get over 50% of the vote).

Your "list" lists small-time players who happen to be Republican.

The same thing can be done with registered Democrats--only cubed.

The list is padded with inadmissable stuff like this:

"* Republican senator Rick Man on Dog Santorum and his wife forced their three children, all under the age of six, to play with a dead fetus in the crib of their home."

That's a shameless mischaracterization of a non-crime that exploits a private and painful family matter, and most of the rest of the "crimes" on the list are spun similarly (if they don't admit to being "alleged").

Obviously, booger, yours is just an angry, vindictive attempt to put the onus of criminality on Republicans/conservatives after the unprecedented crime wave the country was subjected to by the last time the Democratrs were in power.

It's the same vindictive impulse that made Karl project onto George W. Bush the onus of "the biggest string of disasters, moron mistakes, perverts and corruption literally in history!!"

You think that if you scream loudly and long enough, people will be too deafened to recall the disgrace of the preceding Democratic administration which you lowlifes still use as some template of administrative excellence.

One more time:

The erstwhile champion of the Democratic Party--Bill Clinton--when president committed perjury, as determined by a court of law after the political spectacle of the Impeachment.

He is the only president to be impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance.

He still holds the record for having the most number of convictions and guilty pleas by (Democratic) friends and associates.

He still holds the record for having the most number of (Democratic) cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation.


He still holds the record for having the most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify.

He holds the bizarre--if not suspicious-- record of having the most number of witnesses to die suddenly.

He is the only president sued for sexual harassment.

He is the second president accused of rape.

Hillary is the only First Lady to come under criminal investigation.

The Clinton Administration holds the record for having the largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case.

Clinton is the only president to establish a legal defense fund.

He is the only president to be held in contempt of court.

He holds the record for having the greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions--and the greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad.

He is the only president disbarred from the US Supreme Court and a state court.

Number of Starr-Ray investigation convictions or guilty pleas (including one Democratic governor, one Democratic associate attorney general and two Clinton business partners, both Democrats): 14

Number of Clinton Cabinet members (Democrats) who came under criminal investigation: 5

Number of individuals and businesses associated with the Clinton machine (i.e. Democrats) who have been convicted of or pleaded guilty to crimes: 47

Number of these convictions (of Democrats) during Clinton's presidency: 33

Number of indictments/misdemeanor charges (of Democrats): 61

Number of congressional witnesses who have pleaded the Fifth Amendment, fled the country to avoid testifying, or (in the case of foreign witnesses) refused to be interviewed (all Democrats): 122

Guilty pleas and convictions obtained by Donald Smaltz in cases involving charges of bribery and fraud against former Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy and associated individuals and businesses (all democrats): 15

Fines and penalties assessed: $11.5 million

Amount Tyson Food (Democratic Clinton supporters) paid in fines and court costs: $6 million

As of June 2000, the Justice Department listed 25 people indicted and 19 convicted because of the 1996 Clinton-Gore fundraising scandals (all Democrats).

According to the House Committee on Government Reform in September 2000, 79 House and Senate witnesses asserted the Fifth Amendment in the course of investigations into Gore's last fundraising campaign (all Democrats).

James Riady (Democrat) entered a plea agreement to pay an $8.5 million fine for campaign finance crimes. This was a record under campaign finance laws.

Clinton Machine crimes for which convictions were obtained:

Drug trafficking (3), racketeering, extortion, bribery (4), tax evasion, kickbacks, embezzlement (2), fraud (12), conspiracy (5), fraudulent loans, illegal gifts (1), illegal campaign contributions (5), money laundering (6), perjury, obstruction of justice.

All Democrats.

General review of crimes committed by Democratic political players during the Clinton era:

Bank and mail fraud, violations of campaign finance laws, illegal foreign campaign funding, improper exports of sensitive technology, physical violence and threats of violence, solicitation of perjury, intimidation of witnesses, bribery of witnesses, attempted intimidation of prosecutors, perjury before congressional committees, lying in statements to federal investigators and regulatory officials, flight of witnesses, obstruction of justice, bribery of cabinet members, real estate fraud, tax fraud, drug trafficking, failure to investigate drug trafficking, bribery of state officials, use of state police for personal purposes, exchange of promotions or benefits for sexual favors, using state police to provide false court testimony, laundering of drug money through a state agency, false reports by medical examiners and others investigating suspicious deaths, the firing of the RTC and FBI director when these agencies were investigating Clinton and his associates, failure to conduct autopsies in suspicious deaths, providing jobs in return for silence by witnesses, drug abuse, improper acquisition and use of 900 FBI files, improper futures trading, murder, sexual abuse of employees, false testimony before a federal judge, shredding of documents, withholding and concealment of subpoenaed documents, fabricated charges against (and improper firing of) White House employees, inviting drug traffickers, foreign agents and participants in organized crime to the White House.

Number of times that Clinton figures (i.e. Democrats) who testified in court or before Congress said that they didn't remember, didn't know, or something similar:

Bill Kennedy 116
Harold Ickes 148
Ricki Seidman 160

(That from a "genius" who practically remembered the shoe size of his kindergarten teacher in his self-indulgent autobiography *My Life.*)

Number of journalists covering Whitewater who have been fired, transferred off the beat, resigned or otherwise gotten into trouble because of their work on the scandals (Doug Frantz, Jim Wooten, Richard Behar, Christopher Ruddy, Michael Isikoff, David Eisenstadt, Yinh Chan, Jonathan Broder, James R. Norman, Zoh Hieronimus): 10

FBI files misappropriated by the White House: c. 900

Estimated number of witnesses quoted in FBI files misappropriated by the White House: 18,000

Number of witnesses who developed medical problems at critical points in Clinton scandals investigation (Tucker, Hale, both McDougals, Lindsey): 5

Number of witnesses and critics of Clinton subjected to IRS audit: 45

Number of names placed in a White House secret database without the knowledge of those named: c. 200,000

Number of women involved with Clinton who claim to have been physically threatened (Sally Perdue, Gennifer Flowers, Kathleen Willey, Linda Tripp, Elizabeth Ward Gracen, Juantia Broaddrick): 6

Number of men involved in the Clinton scandals who have been beaten up or claimed to have been intimidated: 10

Also, for a guy who undoubtedly attacked Ken Starr for investigating Bill Clinton's sex life (as warranted by the law in sexual harrassment cases), you spend an awful lot of time obsessing over Republican pedophiles while ignoring the fact that 100% of NAMBLA members are undoubtedly Bush-hating Democrats, like you, as are the other sexual interest groups who--unlike the sexually depraved Republican/conservatives who at least would admit that theirs is a vice, not a virtue-- insist that their deviant behavior is not only virtuous, but should be celebrated.

Again, as usual, this recent rash of Republican/Conservative rap-sheets is not being circulated out of any rightousness--self or otherwise--but is just vindictiveness by black-iron pots squirting jets of black ink on tainted kettles.

It's why, after screaming "FOUL!" about Kerry being "swiftboated" in '04, you're applauding the "swiftboating" of McCain.

What does "Change" and "New Direction" Obama have to say about the Clintons?

"But as someone who's shared a stage with (hillary) many times, I can tell you that what gets Hillary Clinton up in the morning...is exactly what sent her and Bill Clinton to sign up for their first campaign in Texas all those years ago...an unyielding desire to improve the lives of ordinary Americans..."

Disqualified, Barry.

Better luck in 2012.

Right, you made a very strong case by using Ted Bundy as a representative Republican.

Gee, I wonder which side of political ideology hippie guru Charles Manson falls into (although I'm sure Obama's candidacy is freaking him out).

Or Lee Harvey.

Or, again, the entire membership of NAMBLA.

Anyway, "weak string"?

"Drug trafficking (3), racketeering, extortion, bribery (4), tax evasion, kickbacks, embezzlement (2), fraud (12), conspiracy (5), fraudulent loans, illegal gifts (1), illegal campaign contributions (5), money laundering (6), perjury, obstruction of justice.

And credible allegations of rape, fool.

For the third time, knucklehead:

"Pay attention, Einstein. The Ken Lay connection with Bush was dropped like a hot potato after it was realized that a whole bunch of top ranking Democrats were playing pocket pool with him."

"Take a week or two and do some real research..."

It takes two minutes, dolt.

"...you might come up with one tenth of what we provided but I doubt it."

Yeah, these crimes against the Constitution and humanity are going to be tough to beat:

"* Republican senator Rick Man on Dog Santorum and his wife forced their three children, all under the age of six, to play with a dead fetus in the crib of their home."*

or this:

"Republican ex congressman Peter Schmitt of Orange County, California’s Republican daughter Mary Kay Lotorneau convicted of raping a 6th grader and bearing his two children."

or this:

"* Republican congressman Ed Shrock resigned from Congress after found seeking sex on hotlines for homosexuals."

All that sure is a lot worse than a president (who you voted for twice) and his pals who were convicted for:

"Drug trafficking (3), racketeering, extortion, bribery (4), tax evasion, kickbacks, embezzlement (2), fraud (12), conspiracy (5), fraudulent loans, illegal gifts (1), illegal campaign contributions (5), money laundering (6), perjury, obstruction of justice."

"...match our list with real names and crimes, jr."

Sure. These are household names that most everyone has heard and are major players in the Democratic party structure (not some "Republican's neice who worked for the county library in Idaho and had a thing for high school kids"):

Sandy Berger, plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material from the National Archives in Washington on 5/05 (just when the 9/11 commission was trying to get to the bottom of responsibility for 9/11).

Jose Carbrera:

Hillary's senate campaign returned $22,000 in "soft money" to a businesswoman linked to a Democratic campaign contribution from a drug smuggler in Havana.
The donation by Vivian Mannerud Verble was the largest single contribution received by Clinton's soft-money committee.

Verble, whose company runs charter flights between Cuba and Miami, also served as the fund-raising intermediary between Jorge Cabrera and the Democratic National Committee in 1995, according to congressional investigators.

The probers reportedly learned that Cabrera cut a $20,000 check to the DNC from a bank account in which he also kept profits from his lucrative cocaine trade. The DNC eventually returned the money, while Cabrera pleaded guilty to importing 6,000 pounds of cocaine into the United States. He is serving a 19-year federal prison sentence in Florida.

Bill Clinton, only the second president to be impeached. Clinton also was fined and had his Arkansas and US Supreme Court bar licenses suspended for failing repeated requrests by a judge to testify trutfully in the Paula Jones case.

Johnny Chung, Democratic fund-raiser who pleaded guilty to election law violations and cooperate in the ongoing Justice Department investigation into illegal campaign fund-raising in the 1996 elections (you know, when Clinton arranged to have felons and felonius illegal aliens to vote?).

Chung became a major figure in the Democratic fund-raising scandal when it was learned he made almost 50 visits to the White House. During one visit, Chung gave first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton's then-chief of staff, Maggie Williams, a $50,000 check for the Democratic National Committee. The check was delivered inside the White House. Two days later Chung was able to bring a group of Chinese businessmen to watch President Bill Clinton deliver a radio address in the Oval Office. They then had their picture taken with the president. The DNC returned more than $300,000 that Chung raised because of questions about the source of the money.

Vina Gupta:

When she was a frontrunner for the Democrats earlier this year, Hillary has been hit by a legal dispute in which one of her fundraisers is accused of trying to "ingratiate" himself with powerful friends at the expense of his company. The row has revived accusations of the influence peddling and favors for donors that marred Bill Clinton's presidency in the 1990s.

For years the Clintons flew on Vinod Gupta's corporate plane, introduced him to world leaders - including Tony Blair - and received donations for their political campaigns and charitable foundations. They relaxed at his holiday home in Hawaii - next door to Pierce Brosnan, the former James Bond star - and jetted to Acapulco, the Mexican resort, while Gupta once spent the night as a favored guest in the Lincoln bedroom at the White House. . .

The lawsuit, by company shareholders, accuses Gupta of squandering millions of dollars on his high-profile friends, including $900,000 worth of travel on the Clintons.

John Huang, in 1994, quit the Lippo Group -- with a golden parachute of around $800,000 -- and went to work for the Commerce Department. Some believe the move is instigated by his friend, Hillary Clinton. The Indonesia-based Lippo Group was headed by Mochtar Riady, a central character in the Clinton scandals.

Commerce Secretary Ron Brown ordered a top secret clearance for Huang. While at Commerce, Huang visits the White House about 70 times, is briefed 37 times by the CIA, views about 500 intelligence reports, and makes 281 calls to Lippo banks. In 1999 Huang was sentenced for campaign finance violations.

NORMAN HSU status within Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign had risen to the level where he was a "HillRaiser," someone who had "bundled" more than $100,000 for her campaign, and to where he co-hosted a $1 million fundraiser at wealthy Democratic Party supporter Ron Burkle's Beverly Hills estate, and in September, he was scheduled to co-host a major gala fundraising event featuring music legend Quincy Jones...

Confronted with the possibility that disgraced fundraiser Norman Hsu might be running an illicit investment scheme, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign announced late Monday that it was returning $850,000 from 260 donors associated with Hsu. The amount is one of the largest ever returned by a single candidate, and the action marked a sharp turn for the Clinton campaign.

Web Hubbel was convicted of tax evasion in 1994 and mail fraud involving the theft of nearly a half million dollars from his partners at the Rose firm and failing to pay nearly $150,000 in taxes. After quitting the Justice Department and before going to jail, Hubbell is a busy man. He meets with former partner Hillary Clinton and follows up by getting together with major scandal figures John Huang, James Riady, and Ng Lapseng. Riady and Huang go to the White House every day from June 21 to June 25, 1994 according to White House records. Hubbell had breakfast and lunch with Riady on June 23. Four days later -- and one week after Hubbell's meeting with Hillary -- the Hong Kong Chinese Bank, jointly owed by Lippo and the Chinese intelligence services, sends $100,000 to Hubbell.

Abdul Rehman Jinnah, a Pakistani immigrant, is wanted by federal authorities on charges he channeled $30,000 in illegal contributions to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential war chest. The FBI is hunting the Los Angeles businessman, who vanished soon after his grand-jury indictment for violating federal election laws last May. Clinton's camp has denied any knowledge of Jinnah's scheme, which is also alleged to have funneled more than $50,000 in illegal donations to the political action committees of Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).

Dan Lasater, Arkansas bond don who was close to the Clintons, pleaded guilty to cocaine distribution charges. The case also involvesd Clinton step brother Roger, who testified against Lasater in a plea agreement. While Lasater is in prison his affairs were run by Patsy Thomasson, who later becomes a White House aide.

Jim McDougal, on April 14, 1997, was convicted of eighteen felony counts of fraud and conspiracy charges. The counts had to do with bad loans made by Madison in the late 1980s. As his savings and loan was federally-insured, the $68million was paid by taxpayers. He joined with his wife, from whom he was later divorced, and the Clintons to borrow $203,000 to buy land in the Ozark Mountains for vacation homes. When the development failed, he attempted to cover the losses with S&L funds. McDougal was prosecuted for fraud in 1984 and hired the Mrs. Clinton's Rose Law Firm to defend him. Questions remain in regard to Mrs. Clinton's Rose Law Firm billing records on Madison Guaranty and how much work she actually did. McDougal also held a fundraiser that paid off Clinton's then campaign debt of $50,000. McDougal died of a heart attack in federal prison in Fort Worth, Texas. The circumstances of his death remain questionable: he was apparently denied access to his heart medication, and he was placed in solitary confinement without the medication.

Susan McDougal was convicted on May 28, 1996, and spent time in prison for four counts of fraud and conspiracy relating to the Whitewater scandal. She also spent 18 months in prison including 7 weeks in solitary confinement for civil contempt of court. U.S. District Court Judge Susan Webber Wright sentenced her after McDougal refused to answer three questions from Whitewater prosecutors before the grand jury empaneled by Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr to investigate the Whitewater deals. These questions included whether President Bill Clinton lied in his testimony during her Whitewater trial, particularly when he denied any knowledge of an illegal $300,000 loan. During that trial, the government's star witness, Arkansas banker and former municipal judge David Hale, claimed that then-Governor Bill Clinton had discussed an illegal $300,000 loan with himself and McDougal. McDougal received a full Presidential pardon from outgoing President Bill Clinton in the final hours of his presidency in 2001.


Peter Paul: Mrs. Clinton's entanglement with a thrice-convicted felon named Peter Paul is proof of how long campaign-finance problems can haunt a public official. Mr. Paul became a problem for Mrs. Clinton when his criminal past became public shortly after he helped organize and finance a gala Hollywood fund-raiser for her in August 2000. Rather than drift away, Mr. Paul has been on the attack against Mrs. Clinton ever since. In a lawsuit in California state court that has been grinding along for years, Mr. Paul accuses Mrs. Clinton and former President Bill Clinton of deceiving him into spending well over $1 million on the fund-raiser for her Senate campaign. Mr. Paul contends the Clintons obtained the money by falsely promising that Mr. Clinton would become Mr. Paul's business associate after leaving the White House in January 2001. Mr. Paul also maintains that Mrs. Clinton and her campaign violated federal election law in connection with the fund-raiser. The Clintons have denied any wrongdoing. Their attorney, David Kendall, says there was never any business arrangement discussed or contemplated between Mr. Paul and Mr. Clinton.

Yeah, right, Dave.

Meanwhile, they screwed Stan "The Man" Lee in the process (which is beyond the pale).

Anthony Pelecano was a cog in the Clinton Machine who carried out a significant portion of the Clinton's Shadow Team's operations along with: Terry Lenzner, founder and chairman of the powerful Washington, D.C., detective firm Investigative Group International; high-ticket San Francisco private eye Jack Palladino and his wife Sandra Sutherland.

In the January 1992 issue of GQ magazine, Pellicano boasted of the dirty work he had performed for his clients, including blackmail and physical assault. He claimed to have beaten one of his client's enemies with a baseball bat. "I'm an expert with a knife," said Pellicano. "I can shred your face with a knife." FBI agents raided Pellicano's West Hollywood office on Nov. 22, 2002, and arrested him on federal weapons charges. In his office, they found gold, jewelry, and about $200,000 in cash - most of it bundled in $10,000 wrappers -thousands of pages of transcripts of illegal wiretaps; two handguns; and various explosive devices stored in safes, including two live hand grenades and a pile of C4plastic explosive, complete with blasting cap and detonation cord.

Keith Ranierre is a purported pyramid-scheme operator.

He has reinvented himself as the head of an upstate group accused of being a "cult" - and his devotees have pumped thousands into Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential run.

Executives and top associates of the Albany-based NXIVM group - along with their family members - donated $29,900 to Clinton's presidential campaign, according to federal records. On March 14 and April 13, records show, more than a dozen contributions poured into Clinton's coffers from NXIVM, an executive and group-awareness training organization led by Brooklyn-born Raniere, 47.

In his previous incarnation, the Svengali-like Raniere ran a $30 million multilevel marketing business that imploded after federal agencies and regulators in 23 states alleged it was an illegal pyramid scheme.

Passaic mayor Samuel Rivera was among the 11 public officials arrested in an F.B.I. corruption sting in New Jersey and was a leading Democratic supporter of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign in that state.

Mayor Rivera allegedly promised to deliver a majority of votes on the Passaic City Council to steer city insurance brokerage business to a dummy company set up by the F.B.I.

Gary Winnick is the founder and chair of later bankrupt Global Crossing that helped Clinton campaign chair Terry McAuliffe make $18 million out of a $100,000 investment.

Winnick also gave $1 million to the Clinton Library. The bankruptcy cost investors millions and costs thousands of employees their jobs. Two years before the crash, Winnick bought a $92 million house, by some estimates the most expensive in American history - including a payment of $66 million in cash.

Me too!

They're mad as hell, and Hillary Clinton's supporters aren't going to take it anymore.

Some Clintonites are so mad about Barack Obama's Tuesday victory that they've launched a web site to build support to launch a lobbying group to support Republican John McCain.

"We're going to run campaign ads to defeat Obama," says Ed Hale, a 63-year-old rancher and a Clinton supporter from Wellington, Texas. "We have doctors, lawyers, CPAs, the blue bloods, and then we have rednecks like me. It's a very diversified organization."

The split illustrates the difficult task the Democratic party now faces in rallying the troops behind Obama. Open dissent within party ranks provides Republicans with openings to exploit.

Hale launched the "Hillary Clinton Supporters for John McCain" group last Saturday. The campaign claims to have 5,000 supporters, and its website visitor counter says that it has already attracted 37,807 visitors.

"Last night, when they crowned Obama king, that's when I sent my e-mails out to people, and since then, we've gotten thousands of hits," he says.

The key point to keep in mind, when a democrat is doing it it is called sex or having an affair, when a republican does he is labeled by the media and everyone else as a pedophile.

Republican lobbyist Craig J. Spence organized child sex parties at the White House during the 1980s.

You do realize this was a hoax? Confirmable my ass...bwhahahaha!!!!

Thank you Elbro.

So they included a hoax, and, as I pointed out above, more padding with non-crimes like these:

"* Republican senator Rick Man on Dog Santorum and his wife forced their three children, all under the age of six, to play with a dead fetus in the crib of their home."

Like I said, that right there is a shameless mischaracterization of a non-crime that exploits a private and painful family matter (however unconventional), and most of the rest of the "crimes" on the list are spun similarly (if they don't admit to being "alleged"), like these:

"Republican ex congressman Peter Schmitt of Orange County, California’s Republican daughter Mary Kay Lotorneau convicted of raping a 6th grader and bearing his two children."

Come on. Letourneau was the grown daughter of a former (Republican) CA congressman who broke the statutory rape law by having an affair with her underage student, who she ended up marrying and having kids with, cheating on her first husband and abandoning the kids she had with him in the process (a moral judgment call which they are disqualified from levying, anyway).

She's twisted and did time, yet because her dad was a Republican...?

WHAT ABOUT THE KENNEDY KIDS?

or this:

"* Republican congressman Ed Shrock resigned from Congress after found seeking sex on hotlines for homosexuals."

A LIBERAL is going to hold THAT against someone and consider it "criminal" and/or depraved?!?

Furthermore, he resigned in disgrace...while Barney Frank has now become a party elder after his Dupont Circle apartment was used as a gay brothel by his boyfriend in the 80's.

Finally, I never even heard of most of those schmucks, and yet booger "challenges":

"...not just a bunch of chickenshit crapola..."

How can you reason with such imbecility?

"match our list with real names and crimes, jr..."

We did, and ours are bigger.

Like I also said, Elbro:

"Obviously, booger, yours is just an angry, vindictive attempt to put the onus of criminality on Republicans/conservatives after the unprecedented crime wave the country was subjected to by the last time the Democrats were in power.

It's the same vindictive impulse that made Karl project onto George W. Bush the onus of "the biggest string of disasters, moron mistakes, perverts and corruption literally in history!!" after their Democratic messiah--Clinton--ended up getting impeached after scandals that were steadily accumulating against him since before his inauguration hit critical mass."

They think that if they scream loudly and long enough, people will be too deafened to recall the disgraceful lawlessness of the preceding Democratic administration which those lowlifes still use as some template of administrative excellence.

I also added that they voted for Clinton twice--but I take that back:

I suspect that they're too young to have voted in '92, or even '96, and so are clueless to what is recent history.

Or else they're imbeciles without the excuse of inexperience.

It seems the GOP has a very difficult time keeping decent leadership in the House of Representatives as an endless line of corrupt leaders have been forced to resign...a string unprecedented in history and emblematic of the modern GOP:

Newton Leroy Gingrich:

Eighty-four ethics charges were filed against Speaker Gingrich during his term, including claiming tax-exempt status for a college course run for political purposes. Following an investigation by the House Ethics Committee, Gingrich was sanctioned for US$300,000[19] after the House Ethics Committee concluded that inaccurate information supplied to investigators represented "intentional or ... reckless" disregard of House rules.[20] Special Counsel James M. Cole concluded that Gingrich violated federal tax law and had lied to the ethics panel in an effort to force the committee to dismiss the complaint against him. However, the full panel refused to reach a conclusion about whether Gingrich had violated federal tax law and instead decided to leave that finding up to the IRS.[21] In 1999, the IRS cleared the organizations connected with the "Renewing American Civilization" courses under investigation for possible tax violations, which suggests that Gingrich did not use tax-exempt money for political purposes.[22]

By 1998, Gingrich had become a highly visible and polarizing figure in the public's eye, making him an easy target for Democratic congressional candidates across the nation. In 1997 a strong majority of Americans believed Gingrich should have been replaced as Speaker of the House, and he held an all-time low job approval rating of 28%.[24] During this period, Gingrich focused on the perjury charges against Clinton as a unifying campaign theme in national Republican advertising. While Republicans believed this theme would ensure gains in the 1998 midterm elections, they instead lost five seats in the House — the worst performance in 64 years for a party that didn't hold the presidency. Polls showed that Gingrich and the Republican Party's attempt to remove President Clinton from office was widely unpopular among the American public.[25]



Bob Livingston:

During debate over the impeachment resolution on December 19, 1998, Livingston stepped down as Speaker-elect and announced he would resign from the House in May 1999. It has often been supposed that his resignation came in connection with a sex scandal. In the months before Livingston's resignation, Larry Flynt claimed to have received evidence that Livingston had indulged in extramarital affairs. Livingston was succeeded by David Vitter, who later went on to become the first popularly elected Republican senator from Louisiana (and to have a sex scandal of his own). Vitter defeated Treen in a hard-fought special election runoff.

Dennis Hastert

In 1999, Denny Hastert took the disgraced Livingston's place, serving as a front man for the notorious Tom DeLay. After years of ineffectual, blundering leadership marked by many scandals, he was forced to resign as a result of his morally bankrupt inaction in the Tom Foley scandal.



TOM DELAY and TRMPAC

Sept. 29, 2005

Rep. Tom DeLay, House Majority Leader was indicted for campaign finance fraud, criminal

conspiracy and two counts of money laundering. He was arrested and booked at Harris County

jail October 20, 2005. Since then he’s been out on bail pending trial. Corporate contributions to

-state legislative candidates are illegal in Texas.

DeLay indicted, steps down as majority leader

House leader calls charges 'sham'; Blunt picked as replacement

Click here for see the indictment

On Sept. 9, 2005 DeLay’s PAC, Texans for a Republican Majority (TRMPAC), is indicted for

illegal donations.

Chronology of Delay - NYT

DeLay Is Indicted Again in Texas; Money Laundering Is Charge

Wikipedia: Tom Delay Corruption Investigation

John Colyandro, was Delay’s executive director of the political action committee

(TRMPAC) Texans for a Republican Majority. He was indicted as a co-conspirator, accused of

receiving illegal corporate political contributions.

3 DeLay Workers Indicted in Texas

Republican James Ellis, Director Americans for a Republican Majority was indicted with

other DeLay associates for money laundering as well as 13 counts of unlawful acceptance of a

corporate political contribution. Money laundering charges stem from $190,000 in corporate

funds that were sent to the Republican National Party

3 DeLay Workers Indicted in Texas

Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Ellis_%28politics%29

Republican Warren RoBold, Lobbyist and DeLay associate was also indicted as the

fundraiser for TRMPAC. Speculation on the internet is that RoBold is cooperating with

prosecutors against DeLay and Ellis.

3 DeLay Workers Indicted in Texas



John Boehner

John Andrew Boehner was elected House Majority Leader after Tom DeLay was forced to resign from the post after a criminal indictment.

His political action committee collected nearly $300,000 from private student lending companies and for-profit academic institutions from 2003-2004. He has taken more than $157,000 in free trips, placing him in 7th place for such questionable activity. More than 20 of his staff members have taken jobs in the private sector as lobbyists or corporate public affairs specialists. He handed out checks to his colleagues from tobacco company political action committees on the floor of Congress in 1995. He will undoubtedly use this key position to undercut ethics and lobbying reforms in the House of Representatives.

In September 2006, shortly after the five-year anniversary of the World Trade Center destruction, he stated to the disbelief of everyone that Democrats "are more interested in protecting the terrorists than protecting the American people."

Just another corrupt Republican extremist who shortly will be out on the street without a job.

And, of course, only the most naive or the most partisan hacks don't know that the Spence Molestation ring was not really a hoax at all:

In 1993 the British-based TV station, Yorkshire Television, sent a team to Nebraska to launch its own investigation of the Franklin case. Yorkshire had a contract with the Discovery Channel to produce a documentary on the case for American television.[citation needed] The documentary, titled Conspiracy of Silence, was to air nation-wide on the Discovery Channel on May 3, 1994. It appeared in TV Guide[citation needed] and in newspaper listings,[citation needed] however, it was never broadcast. Conspiracy of Silence, which is available for viewing on the Internet, claims influential members of Congress applied pressure to stop the documentary from airing and to destroy of all its copies in exchange for reimbursing The Discovery Channel and Yorkshire Television the $250,000-400,000 production costs. The Internet reincarnation of this film has the rough, unfinished look of a documentary missing some portions of video, which is consistent with the story told by former Nebraska state senator John DeCamp that the footage of this film appeared on his doorstep a year after it was supposedly destroyed.

Look at the GOPerv lovelies ensnared in this vile spider web!!:

Key persons named in the allegations were Craig J. Spence, a Washington, D.C.-based Republican lobbyist who committed suicide in 1989,[3][4] and Lawrence King, who was eventually convicted of embezzling thirty-eight million dollars as manager of the Franklin Community Federal Credit Union in Nebraska.[5] King had been one of the Republican party's rising stars, performing the national anthem at the 1984 and 1988 Republican National Conventions. According to the December 18, 1988 New York Times, unidentified people present at a closed meeting reported that Nebraska State Senator Ernie Chambers said he had heard credible reports of "boys and girls, some of them from foster homes, who had been transported around the country by airplane to provide sexual favors, for which they were rewarded."[6]

If you want to talk about "BIG FISH," numbskull, one more time:

"The erstwhile champion of the Democratic Party--Bill Clinton--when president committed perjury, as determined by a court of law after the political spectacle of the Impeachment.

He is the only president to be impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance.

He still holds the record for having the most number of convictions and guilty pleas by (Democratic) friends and associates.

He still holds the record for having the most number of (Democratic) cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation.

He still holds the record for having the most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify.

He holds the bizarre--if not suspicious-- record of having the most number of witnesses to die suddenly.

He is the only president sued for sexual harassment.

He is the second president accused of rape.

Hillary is the only First Lady to come under criminal investigation.

The Clinton Administration holds the record for having the largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case.

Clinton is the only president to establish a legal defense fund.

He is the only president to be held in contempt of court.

He holds the record for having the greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions--and the greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad.

He is the only president disbarred from the US Supreme Court and a state court.

"...for campaign finance fraud, criminal conspiracy and two counts of money laundering. He was arrested and booked at Harris County."

Chump change. One more time, buffo:

General review of crimes committed by Democratic political players during the Clinton era:

Bank and mail fraud, violations of campaign finance laws, illegal foreign campaign funding, improper exports of sensitive technology, physical violence and threats of violence, solicitation of perjury, intimidation of witnesses, bribery of witnesses, attempted intimidation of prosecutors, perjury before congressional committees, lying in statements to federal investigators and regulatory officials, flight of witnesses, obstruction of justice, bribery of cabinet members, real estate fraud, tax fraud, drug trafficking, failure to investigate drug trafficking, bribery of state officials, use of state police for personal purposes, exchange of promotions or benefits for sexual favors, using state police to provide false court testimony, laundering of drug money through a state agency, false reports by medical examiners and others investigating suspicious deaths, the firing of the RTC and FBI director when these agencies were investigating Clinton and his associates, failure to conduct autopsies in suspicious deaths, providing jobs in return for silence by witnesses, drug abuse, improper acquisition and use of 900 FBI files, improper futures trading, murder, sexual abuse of employees, false testimony before a federal judge, shredding of documents, withholding and concealment of subpoenaed documents, fabricated charges against (and improper firing of) White House employees, inviting drug traffickers, foreign agents and participants in organized crime to the White House."

And credible allegations of rape, fool.

Obama says,

Let us now forget what has gone on in the past. The past is behind us, and the future is before us.

We must move forward into the future because we must. We cannot move into the past because we cannot.

We must come together as a nation, because when we do not do that, then we are not together. Together is good, and not together is bad. Together means that we all come around each other. (applause)

People have been asking me why I support a racial agenda when I said that I was not going to do that. That is a good question. Let me re-iterate. that is a really good question.

Now others have talked about my acquaintances with some characters that are 'less than savory.' That is also a good question. Savory is an adjective. Adjectives are good, unless I disagree with those adjectives. Adjectives are part of many languages, and I like a great many of them. I learned about adjectives in Harvard and I fully support those! (applause)

My opponent, McCain, has long had a history of siding with my party, but he and I cannot agree on adjectives all of the time. My other opponent, Hillary, has used a lot of them on me and I am sore as hell about that, but I cannot come up with better ones. (applause)

Angry, middle class gun toting morans are likely not going to agree with my adjectives or my policy. That is because they are angry middle class gun-toting religious types. I do not care about them, and my wife is furious with them, and I have to listen to the wifey...heh? You know how that goes! Ask Bill. He is still sleeping in apartments and attics and the like.

So, vote for me! Obama! And do NOT ask me any more questions!
