    Even if that is so it does not justify this guy not being indicted. And this is the person to talk about. He is the one up on charges here. Not Rangel.

    No, Rangel has NOTHING to do with Grimm. Every tub must set on its own bottom.

    Ignoring Grimm by referring to Rangel is trying to give Grimm a pass.

    Rangel's transgressions consisted of congressional ethics violations, which not in the same league with these felony indictments against Grimm.

    I agree, but it seems that only those on the right side of the aisle are weeded out. Look no further than fellow NYS Rep Charlie Rangel. He was found guiilty of similarly serous charges and all he received was censure. Why do you suppose one guy gets frogged walked out into Federal custody while the other just has to shed a few crocodile tears in the pit of the House?

    @JackinVienna Rangel was indicted by a grand jury and charged with crimes by federal prosecutors? I must have missed something.

    @JackinVienna That one is real simple, Rangel was a democrat. You don't think there is a snowballs chance in hell that Obama and Holder go after a democrat.

    @JackinVienna Grimm is the guy who threatened bodily harm to a report on camera. The man is patently stupid and arrogant to boot. In my book, that's enough to get him kicked out of Congress and I understand others my not agree. But I think someone who is that stupid is stupid enough to do more egregious things behind closed door.

    Why so many mentions of his party in the headlines? Did Politix beat the same drum for Leland Yee? CNN took weeks to have the story at all, and none of the major media mentioned his being a Democrat until the were barraged for their bias.

    @AceLuby The media NEVER makes a big deal of the party affiliation UNLESS it's a REPUBLICAN, and you KNOW it! In THIS article, the "Republican" appears in the FIRST SENTENCE! I rest my case.

    Whenever there is a political scandal and the party of the politician is not mentioned, then I just assume he's a Democrat. It's a man-bites- dog kind of story when a Republican is involved. It's the usual run-of-the-mill when it's a Democrat, so no need to mention his party affiliation.

    It's a good start... Now we only have 434 Congressmen left, 100 Senators, 9 Supreme Justices, a President and a Vice President... That should just about do it and then we can start anew....

    @yodibactum
    Strange complaint. You DO start anew every two years with an entire new house of representatives, all 435 of them -- except you keep electing the same ones. You also replace 1/3 of the senate every two years and the president and VP every 4. You want to know why things are screwed up? look in the mirror. Thank God the Supreme Court justices are appointed for life and are totally immune from political BS, just as the founding fathers wished.

    @richstacy whereas you are correct is what you say please realize this... "You", meaning me, only has one vote... I can only help replace "MY" representatives and "MY" President and VP... I have NO say on the Justices or "YOUR" reps... So, I suggest YOU along with many others need to look in the mirror... And as for the justices being "Immune" from political BS? What have you been smoking?

    I DO look in the mirror all the time. Obviously, I was not singling you out, I meant all of us. We have the opportunity to completely and totally change the government every few years, yet we do not do it. We keep re-electing the same dolts, year after year.
    I haven't been smoking anything, with lifetime tenure, the Art. III judiciary is the ONLY part of government that is truly independent. The current swing vote on the High Court, Justice Kennedy, was appointed by Reagan he votes sometimes liberal, sometimes conservative, he calls the law as he see it. Last week, the vote was a bipartisan 6-2 upholding Michigan's ban on racial preferences.

    They don't spend 80% of their time pandering to various interest groups and raising money in order to get reelected like Congress and the President do. That's what I meant. And I'm right about it.

    Another guy who should change parties where he will be embraced. I'm still trying to find out why Politix isn't doing a follow-up on the California gun running dem who is against the 2nd amendment.

    And the seven or eight State legsilators who have been indicted for accepting BRIBES!! for their vote. And what about Jesse Jackson Jr? The facts in his case were NEVER made known to We the People. Just that he pled guilty, and is spending some time in the hoosegauw. Of course all involved in these two matters were DEMOCRATS, which no one but Fox News have pointed that out in what little coverage they gave to those two VERY important cases.
  • #308

    @David_Waldrop Thanks for all that. You can understand why Fox is castigated by the dems. All the sycophants out there take orders from Obama and are instructed not to watch Fox. They are free to watch CNN, CBS, ABC, CNBC, comedy shows, PBS etc. etc--etc.

    And kill his wife and kids, and his parents if still alive, burn the town down where he lives, hunt down the ones who voted for him and cut their heads off, that'll teach em

    Absolutely agree. But we will not know the truth until the lame street media has a chance to crucify him because he is a Republican. The lame street media gave VERY little time to Weinergate, or the governor of Illinois who tried to SELL obama's senate seat, or the mayor of San Diego who liked to fondle women, and went to REHAB for his "sickness". If it wasn't San Diego, it was a city in Southern California. All three of these were "Democrats". What little coverage the lame street media gave on these three cases, was not only minimal, but I never noticed a whole lot of mention of their "Democrat" status.
  • #227

    @David_Waldrop

    the press has a definite leftist bias, but contrary to what you say, the governor of Ill, IS in a federal prison -- Weiner is disgraced and the Mayor of San Diego was the butt of almost as many jokes as Weiner for months and -- was forced to resign. The fact that they were all Democrats was prominently mentioned in all cases.

    I would say if he's convicted, yes, he should resign. Are we sure he isn't being set up by a bunch of conspiratorial Wesen, Hexenbiester , Blutbaden and Kleinerbiester? After all he IS a 'Grimm', ;o)
  • #35

    His name doesn't have a (D) behind it, so the witchhunts that end up being meaningless like Watergate, IRS, Benghazi, etc... are going to be inherently rarer since a moron like Izza isn't running them.

    @BravoJuliet That is the purpose of expanded unemployment benefits and other politically motivated giveaways. Want to help someone? Educate, educate, educate. As a taxpayer and old bag, I support wildly reduced colleges, universities, apprenticeship programs, and hands on education via internships.

    And obama for Benghazi, the IRS, and for breach of his oath of office to FAITHFULLY enforce ALL the laws of the USA.

    I fully agree with you. Don't forget holder for contempt of congress!!

    Exactalackly!! And of course the lame street media covers this like Mr. Grimm shot the president or something else of value. Does that mean that obama and holder are actually trying to cause some POLITICAL problems for their opponents? Oh surely not!!!!! The timing of this should be looked into, but then the Democrats would accuse Congressional Oversight Committees of being political. Gee, that sounds like what THEY did!!!

    He should resign after he has his due process and is found guilty. Otherwise no. I'm beginning to think we should bring back the time honored practice of tar and feathering dishonest politicians. They are shamelessly robbing us blind and if they see jail time, it will be in some country club. Once released, they will move to K Street and make big bucks lobbying.

    We can do a pay per view event every year during the cherry blossom festival, with proceeds goiing to paying down the debt. We parade them out onto the steps of Capitol Hill and tar and feather them. Adding some fear and humility to our legislators could be a good thing.
  • #129

    I agree!! Of course the government would have to pay 3-5 times the actual cost of the TAR and FEATHERS, but I would gladly donate a little extra for that Project!!!
  • #67

    No. It's political, just like Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS scrutiny of Tea Party organisations, etc. He should do like Obama and tell people not to believe their lying eyes.

    Of course they're going to crucify him. He's a Republican. If he was a Democrat, he'd get a pass and the media would say it was fine.
    New York is controlled by the Democrat machine. They have all the unions on their side. You can't make a move there without kowtowing to the unions.

    @Fleck I like this comment, but I think New Jersey may have more mob members than NY , but I agree Florida is the Mafia capital ever since the great Cuban migration of 1959.

    I'm in Miami . Cubans regardless of Rep or Dem = staggering political corruption , zero political, zero police standards .

    As a neighbor born in Cuba put it "Cubans here fled corruption only to recreate it , no different than Mexican in Ca.

    Should be Obama and Holder in custody for fast and furious. Not Grim for running a bad restaurant. This is a political witch hunt.

    The way he threatened that reporter some time back for what seemed innocuous enough, causes me to suspect the guy is the south end of a northbound mule. The evidence against him looks pretty damning.
  • #313
    !
    He wanted to teach that nosy reporter to never, ever
    ask a Republican a real question. If a reporter actually does
    ask a Republican a real question, that reporter will be accused
    of violating that Republican's freedom of speech.

    In Republican Land, a reporter's job is to get the Republican's message out,
    not ask honest questions.

    ematzke-----Because Sharpton was a snitch for the FBI and if they was locked up, the blacks would riot as they are two of their boys. WE all know how they stick together, like bees to a hive. I know that some will say it is a racist remark, but it is very true. If they don't get their way they riot.
