I have been watching House of Cards which depicts the democrat party as sleaze bags, corrupt beyond imagination, and criminal. they are shown to even kill people if it suits their ends. If they had included an episode depicting a congressman making porno films, I would have concluded the series was out of ideas and filming nonsense. Then comes this story. I simply do not know what to say!

This guy was once pardoned by Clinton.

Some New Zealand minister has had to deny he is of reptilian origin. No way this sub species of Clintons could deny it.

From the article...

Reynolds, once a close confidante of Rev. Jesse Jackson, resigned in disgrace after two years in Congress when he was convicted of 12 counts of statutory rape, solicitation of child pornography and obstruction of justice.

Democrat Jesse Jackson Jr., left, replaced Mel Reynolds in Congress and then won 88 per cent of the vote when Reynolds challenged him after his release from prison. But Jackson Jr., the son of Rev. Jesse Jackson (R), went to prison in 2013 for using campaign donations to fund his lavish lifestyle

Small world: Law professor Barack Obama began his political life when an Illinois state senator left her seat open by running to replace Reynolds after his resignation from Congress

“in Zimbabwe . . . where he had accumulated $24,500 in unpaid bills, and . . . overstayed his visa by two months.”

Turnabout is fair play.

From the article:
“It was Reynolds’ trysts with the 16-year-old campaign aide that opened up Barack Obama’s first opportunity to enter politics.

Following the Congressman’s indictment, state Senator Alice Palmer leaped forward to challenge him in a Democratic primary. Obama immediately put his name forward to win the open state legislative post, starting his meteoric rise to the White House.”

Would I rather have had the pedophile or the Beast?

Yes! This show is just about democrats. In the first season, the show starts out with the scene of a dog being hit by a car and Kevin Spacey the Speaker of the House and the central figure runs out of his house and while others run to get help he strangles the dog to death. Then he looks in the camera and says something like people do not have the guts to do what it takes. The series is so believable that you have to be really alarmed.

Nobody is named, it’s all fictional and loosely based on a series of British novels. But the main character is the Democratic Whip and thus the people he gets to push around are fellow Dems.

"trysts with the 16-year-old campaign aide"

Wasn't this the guy who became famous for saying, "I've hit the jackpot" when the aide said she could bring a friend?

Apparently Mel Reynolds is a financial deadbeat of a pornographer who now finds himself in violation of Zimbabwe's immigration laws.

Looks like he hit the trifecta with his latest adventure.

Having read the books and seen the BBC version, where-in all the characters are in the Conservative Party (same party the author was a member of), I’ll say it’s not really “about” any party. They’re all dems in the US show but most of the major events and story beats, not to mention the conniving nature of the main character, are from the original source. In all 3 versions F.U. (wish they’d actually call him that in the US version) is Whip because it’s the Whip’s job to have all the dirt (and help hide it) and keep the party members in line which is the source of his power.

All the characters are dems, but none of them are based on actual democrats, none of the antics are based in real world democrat activities. The most the party plays in is they’re beholden to unions and enviros, you could rewrite the show as reps in about 10 minutes.

While serving a five-year prison sentence, the disgraced Reynolds was convicted on unrelated bank fraud charges in 1997, including lying to Securities and Exchange Commission investigators.

He received another six and a half years, but President Bill Clinton later commuted his sentence when he still had three years left to serve.

Guess Ole Slick has a soft spot in his heart for his rapist friend Mel.

It is eerie how it’s a cesspool that provides the “opening” from which a Godless Marxist can emerge and attain, in a “meteoric rise”, the presidency, brag of a coming “fundamental transformation” to the United States, and actually succeed. EERIE.

There is a message for America in there somewhere.

Yup, very same guy. Pardoned by Bill Clinton.

True. But given what we see of the dem party today, it does not matter the characters are not made to depict real life democrats. It is all credible and believable. After the Clintons, Obama and Pelosi none of what happens seems fantastic because you can find events in real life in the democrat party that precisely parallel what happens in the Houe of Cards. That is not to say the Republicans are saints of course not but it is nice for a change to see the democrats being depicted as the sleazoids they are. So much of the media and Hollywood always insulates them from all criticism.

" Pardoned by Bill Clinton."

Interesting, that would mean the pardon was probably prepared by Eric Holder.

That stretches it mightily.

The House whip meeting a reporter in the subway and then himself pushing her in front of the arriving subway train thereby killing her?

When he knows that her friends are on to him?

It’s simply engaging fiction that those who want to read into it can.

Are you kidding?

Do you remember Vince Foster? He committed suicide in a park with a bullet to the head with a rusted gun that would not fire and no blood to be found. One of Clinton’s closest advisors.

Do you remember Chandra Levy who was killed by a congressman. Human blood found in his apartment and him sneaking around driving 50 miles to get rid of evidence. He resigned and that was it.

When his friends are onto him. OK. Obama and Fast and Furious and Bengahzi whenh everyone knows that thousands of Mexican national have been butchered as a result of selling guns to drug gangs. Obama chose to let the Benghazi ambassador be killed rather than rescue him so as not to jeopardize the election. All of O’s friends are onto him but they look the other way. These are only a few examples.

Are you kidding? Stretching the imagination. Where have you been?

Yes. I remember her.

No, there is a gentleman not named Condit in jail for her murder.

You miss the point. There are democrats who will go to any length to protect their power. Condit got caught but he was willing to and did kill an intern to protect himself. The point is that in HOC they depict democrats who will go to any lengths for power and you can find in real life endless examples in the last couple of decades of democrats who have done anything and everything including murder to protect their power. That is the point and definitely not a stretch of the imagination.

What about alleged Republican Joe Scarboroughs aide who had the bad taste to mysteriously expire in his office in Florida and which the national press ignored after some misleading information was released by his office.

You can avoid a “prostitution/soliciting” charge if you are making/casting a porno when you pay them. Note this is not legal advice, just seems to be the case.
