RANGEL COP 'NIECE' EYED IN PERP BOOST - SECOND PROBE HITS PA POLICE LIEUTENANT

RANGEL COP 'NIECE' EYED IN PERP BOOST
SECOND PROBE HITS PA POLICE LIEUTENANT

A Port Authority police lieutenant who officials believe is the niece of Rep. Charles Rangel helped spring a trio of suspected pot smugglers from jail -- just a month after trying to get a mentally ill, gun-toting Navy castoff on a flight out of JFK, The Post has learned.

The Internal Affairs unit has now opened a second probe into Lt. Coretta Smith, a 15-year veteran who sources said came to the rescue of the suspects. They had been pulled over on the George Washington Bridge with stacks of cash in a car wreaking of marijuana.

Smith has so far been spared serious charges from the airport shenanigans. Insiders believe she is getting lenient treatment because of her high-powered uncle, who has great influence over federal grants to the agency as dean of the New York congressional delegation, the sources said.

Rangel did not return calls.

Smith stepped back into hot water Monday, when PA cops stopped a 2003 Buick on the New Jersey side of the bridge after they suspected its driver was intoxicated.

"I smoked a joint," the driver, Robert Timmons, 27, allegedly admitted to PA Police Officer Leonel Gonzalez.

A police dog smelled pot in a woman's purse. It contained several bundles of cash with "a strong odor of marijuana all over the money," according to a police report, and there was also pot residue in the car.

The officers took Timmons, of Paterson, NJ, and his passengers, Tyre Gyasi, 19, also of Paterson, and a girl, 17, into custody.

Smith, who had been assigned to a Port Authority station house in New Jersey that evening, got involved.

Obama will come to the aid of Comrade Rangel...

From the website of the Workers World Party:

"Dear Comrade Kim Jong Il...

With his leadership [Kim Il Sung], the Korean people defeated the Japanese colonial occupation and soon after brought about the first defeat of the U.S. imperialist military machine. ...

Workers World Party values our close, comradely relations with the Workers Party of Korea very highly. We are proud to have known Kim Il Sung as a great leader and a comrade in the international communist movement. ..."

With comradely solidarity, Sam Marcy Chairperson, Workers World Party" (1994):

Photo of Charlie Rangel at the podium of a March 19th, 2005 Workers World Party/Troops Out Now rally in Harlem, New York. The occasion marked the 2nd anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. The photo comes from the ("We are proud to have known Kim Il Sung as a great leader and a comrade in the international communist movement. ...") Workers World Party website.

Also appearing at this "peace" rally with the demonRat Charlie Rangel, now chairman of The House Ways and Means Committee, were Saddam Hussein lawyer, Ramsey Clark and convicted terrorist enabler/attorney, Lynne Stewart. Clark, with Workers World Party, started up that other 'peace' group, A.N.S.W.E.R. Clark also heads the International Action Center and was actually once Attorney General of the United States under democrat LBJ. -etl

For those that haven’t already figured it out PA cops were so pissed at what she did in this case they dropped a dime on her to the NY Post. From what I understand this lady is hated by many of the badges who work for her. Incidentially this is not the first time she’s done this and I’m not talking about the other case referenced. Someone I know who spoke to one of the PA cops thinks the reason she cut them loose was entirely racial.
Bear in mind I’m only telling you what was told to me by a person I trust so take it for what it’s worth.

If she’s Charlie Rangel’s niece, then I’d say she’s untouchable.

That’s triple affirmative action.

1. Black.

2. Female.

3. Charlie Rangle’s niece.

Trifecta.

I don't know whether or not Hillary was ever involved with the Workers World Party, but she did help defend the Black Panthers in a murder case as a young law student. The BPs were closely allied with groups like the Weather Underground, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), Black Liberation Army, also the Revolutionary Communist Party and John Kerry's Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW). All of these were/are Maoist.

Maybe it was Worker’s Family party which was what Acorn was I think before it got leveled a while back. She did run on that ticket as well as the Democratic ticket for POTUS.

There appears to be quite a few dishonest Rangels, black politicians and black police in the U.S.???

It’s beginning to appear that a too significant number of African-Americans have become our “Trojan Horse” filled with traitors, knaves, leaches, thieves and black racists.

I believe you’re thinking of the “Working Family Party”:

Hmm. I could have sworn they were all commercial and voice-over actors.

From David Horowitz's
FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org

PROFILE: WORKING FAMILY PARTY

* Front group for ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now)

* Functions as a political party in New York State and Connecticut, running or cross-endorsing candidates for local, state, and federal office

* Works closely with Hillary Clinton

(snip)

An outgrowth of the socialist New Party, WFP was created in 1998. According to a 2000 article by the Associated Press, its objective was (and still is) to "help push the Democratic Party toward the left." In pursuit of this goal, WFP runs radical candidates in state and local elections. Generally, WFP candidates conceal their extremism beneath a veneer of populist rhetoric, promoting bread-and-butter issues designed to appeal to union workers and other blue-collar voters, Republican and Democrat alike.

Yeah, I had actually never heard of them until now. Gets more and more interesting every day. They apparently used to be the socialist New Party. I knew about them (the New Party), but not the Working Family Party. Thanks for bringing it up. I’ve added them to the ACORN section of my FReeper home page.
