In other words, he was bragging about his hopes to ban independent political advocacy by the very people he was hitting up for donations -- in order, he claimed, to intimidate out of the race any candidate whom the same sorts of people might back.
So great is Schumer's chutzpah that he (along with Wisconsin's Russ Feingold and Vermont's Pat Leahy) is using discloseact.com -- a Web site that's supposedly dedicated to backing the campaign "reform" bill -- to build a fund-raising database.
The kind of crap Obamacare will bring to the US:
A Canadian friend (living in southern Ontario at the time) complained to me for years that he couldn't get a general practitioner. Without a general practitioner he couldn't get a referral to a specialist. He got his medical care by going to emergency wards.
TORONTO, Ont., July 6, 2010 — Nearly 60 per cent of Ontarians with rheumatoid arthritis — an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints — were not seen by a specialist within a one year period to treat the debilitating disease, according to a new study. Even more concerning is that women of child-bearing age are less likely to see a specialist than women 45 or older, say researchers from St. Michael's Hospital, the Institute for Clinical and Evaluative Sciences (ICES), and Women's College Hospital.
Michelle Malkin has some new NASA logo designs to take notice of the new priorities of the agency. This one isn't a logo, just nice:
One entertaining, one very not.
Speaking of clowns and racists and dirtbag politicians, take a look at the kind of people Race Coward Holder is sucking up to at the cost of destroying the law.
Touching on the above, more former DOJ people are talking about this bullcrap.
So let them burn their own neighborhood, just keep it from spreading. And don't let them move out when their home is trashed: "You did it, you live in it."
Snork... them IDF guys kind of spice up a patrol, don't they?
Theo's cartoon roundup. Including this one
No, I hadn't heard about this before:
seems that after Sarah Palin accepted the VP slot on the McCain ticket, the campaign, knowing how democrats operate, established a completely transparent legal defense fund to pay legal fees resulting from anticipated allegations related to her service as governor.
|“|| On cue, within minutes of the announcement of Governor Patin's trust, a complaint was filed. And, the first "independent counsel" selected to investigate the trust was the Alaska office of Perkins Coie (President Barack Obama's law firm). . ||”|
|“|| Indeed, former Democratic Presidential nominee Senator Kerry's trust was drafted by the same Perkins Coie, President Barack Obama's law firm. |
Apparently before realizing that Governor Palin's trust was nearly identical to the trust Perkins Coie prepared for John Kerry, the Perkins Coie "independent counsel" found in a detailed nine page “CONFIDENTIAL” letter -- that was promptly leaked to the media — that Gov. Palin's trust was illegal.
Ridicule ensued. In addition, once the conflict of interest between representing President Obama and investigating Gov. Sarah Palin became public, the Perkins Coie "independent counsel" resigned. And so, a new second "independent counsel" (with no background or expertise in the area of legal expense funds) began the investigation anew.
A bag belonging to agents travelling with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was mistakenly put on a flight from New York to Los Angeles, not to Washington. Alarmingly the bag contained four 9mm Glock handguns, which are now missing…
The Israeli officers were accompanying Mr Netanyahu to Washington for White House talks with President Barack Obama.
NBC News reported that the handguns had, in accordance with security procedures at New York’s John F Kennedy airport, been placed inside checked luggage. The luggage was then supposed to be put on a connecting flight to Washington however, American Airlines workers at the airport instead sent it right across the country to LAX in Los Angeles.
By the time the luggage was located and recovered, the guns had disappeared, and are presumed to have been stolen.
Gee, ya think maybe?
And Rodge? I think a lot of us may have need of this knot in the future...
