NOT ENTIRELY COMPOSED WHEN DEPOSED. That would be Democratic gubernatorial nominee Ed Rendell, who was recently deposed in a federal lawsuit in which he is a defendant.
Rendell appeared at times angry, frustrated and incredulous over some of the questions asked during the June 14 deposition in Philadelphia. More than once, he threatened to walk out of the proceedings.

He was restrained by his attorney or he would have battered Don in a lawsuit for being battered.
No report on who is restraining Klayman and Company from filing assult charges on behalf of Don Adams, but this is par for the JW course
John Morris, the Teamster thug who was videotaped leading the assult and battery of Don and Teri died four years after the incident ...... but JW NEVER got around to deposing him
Perhaps they were afraid they'd win one
Perhaps Don should consider filing charges for assult against Rendell. Though the last time when he filed against John Morris and the Teamsters with the entire incident on video tape, in a Kafka-esque / Alice-through-the-looking-glass twist, the Philly prosecutor Lynn Abrams charged Don with assault dispite clear video evidence to the contrary
Now it appears he is being beaten down by his attorneys
God Bless you Don & Teri
I am concerned about the types of questions Larry asked. Maybe I'd have to read the entire transcript to understand their relevance, but they're almost silly, don't you think?
God bless Don and Teri.
On the one hand, it could be relevant to a RICO-type allegation. Mob and organized crime.
On the other hand, does anyone remember the lawsuit against Montel Williams for sexual harassment? It started with reasonable allegations from two women who worked for him. Over time, the lawyer introduced more and more co-plaintiffs that were more and more absurd. The judge threatened t throw it out if he added another bizarre plaintiff to the suit. The lawyer did, and the judge threw it out. I always thought that Montel's people got to the lawyer and bribed him to make the case seem absurd and get it thrown out, to diffuse the reputation damage done to him better than a settlement could have.
Larry Klayman makes alot of noise, but who has ever been convicted by one of his actions? He seems like a ringer(?) or a shill(?), someone who files this and that to make us feel like something is being done, when nothing is. And once he takes legal action, nobody else can, so the case is lost permanently.
Is this link working?..it won't connect...
I didn't know thug Morris was dead.......restraining comment here.
Rendell is a thug also.
Glad he is being deposed.
But the question about organized crime and JFK seems ridiculous to be asking in the Adams case, don't you think?
Clinton thugs all operate the same way as Rendell:
They fume and fuss and intimidate and always, always, always out-shout their opponents and/or refuse to be nailed down to answer any incriminating questions.
At least Rendell is being made to answer some questions and if he tried to assault Don Adams during the dep - I wish somebody videotaped it and this can be replayed.....leading up to this election would make a nice campaign "film", don't you think?

... Teamster beatings at the anti-Clinton rally was to press assault charges against
Don Adams, one of the protesters who was beaten up; Mr. Adams ultimately was ...
Rendell, who had characterized some of the slogans of the anti-Clinton protesters as "disgusting,"
Hold on, HOLD THE CLINTON ON.
Rendell wasn't there. He doesn't know what slogans we used. But he knew ahead of time what he was going to say about them.
I walked through the crowd of Teamsters extensively before the outbreak of hostilities. While I did this, I noticed at least two or three signs that said something to the effect of, "We won't let anyone insult Hillary and Chelsea". That stuck in my mind because nobody in history had insulted Hillary and Chelsea more than a certain draft-dodging rapist, and yet who were they there to support? The hypocrisy (or "compartmentalization" as the Clinton administration called it) astounded me, and I felt a chill of foreboding when I saw the sentiment repeated.
After the violence, Johnny Morris got before the cameras and claimed that the violence was in response to "anti-Hillary" and "anti-Chelsea" slogans being shouted by the patriots. Then later on TV, I saw Rendell repeating the same lies. Now, how did he know to say that? It was because it was one of the pre-arranged agreed-upon talking points. They knew there was going to be violence, and knew what the cover story was going to be.
Of course nothing of the kind was shouted by anybody; I look forward to testifying to that in court. It will come as no surprise when I do, because I told the Teamster lawyers as much when they vigorously debriefed me for almost eight hours in January.
Is anyone else having difficulty getting to this site to SEE these images?? I can't get to this site..Does anyone have a working link? I'd appreciate it. THANKS!
I'll also mention a surprising interrogation tactic employed by the Teamsters. I was expecting to be deposed by thick-necked, spittle-spraying, spleen-venting pit bulls like James Lyons or Brian McMonagle, who defended the Local in the criminal phase. I was prepared to stand up against bullies. As it turned out, the lawyer for the local was an older professorial gentleman, and the I.B.T. lawyer was a young, friendly, four-star bombshell. Smart, too. She knew what to ask and how to ask it to get a favorable response.
Most of the deposition was spent going over my FreeRepublic postings line-by-line.
Paul Orfanedes of Judicial Watch and Joe Adams (Don's lawyer cousin) were also there to cross-examine me.
Yeah, but women and vegetarians lack the muscle to do real damage.
That is why JW files these lawsuits. Often the only thing that they get out of these politico-criminals is watching them sweat out their carefully parsed answers knowing that the inquisitor is not as naive as the proletariat at large and will not settle for bovine droppings, but will make them tell the truth, something that for many of these people is akin to committing political suicide.
For Larry, suing IS fun. :-)
They deserve MUCH, MUCH better. Klayman will get in the way of any justice for them.
He's the democratic nominee for the governorship of Pennsylvania in the upcoming election. I believe he's heavily favored to win.
Here's an excerpt from an April report in the Pittsburgh Tribune, Ed Rendell used to being in public eye
Lately, Rendell has been fending off queries about his job at the Philadelphia law firm of Ballard Spahr Andrews & Ingersoll for which he is paid $250,000 for doing, he admits, "very little work."Like Clinton, Rendell also set up his wife. In fact, through Clinton, Rendell set up his wife.
While Rendell was chairman of the board of the Philadelphia Housing Authority, the authority hired Ballard Spahr to represent the agency during an investigation by the Office of Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The OIG found that the housing authority, during Rendell's tenure, violated its own personnel policy and engaged in conflicts of interest in the hiring of politically connected employees.
The authority hired Ballard Spahr and other consultants, including an international private detective agency, to conduct its own investigation, which absolved the authority of any violations.
HUD officials, in a letter to Rendell, said the private investigators "shadowed" auditors and accused Ballard Spahr attorneys of trying to impede the probe. The federal auditors also complained that the PHA used the exit interview, a chance for the agency to respond to the findings, to criticize the OIC to "detract from the issues" in the audit.
After the March 26 letter from HUD was released, Rendell resigned as chairman of the authority. Rendell said he was planning to leave the authority anyway and denied his resignation had anything to do with the audit critical of the PHA.
Rendell joined Ballard Spahr as a partner in January 2000. The managing director of the firm is David Cohen, who served as Rendell's chief of staff while Rendell was mayor.
Marjorie (Midge) Osterlund-Rendell, Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
As I understand that's two federal judiciary appointments by Clinton. One to the Federal Bench, and a follow-up to the court of Appeals.
Guess the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee found Mrs. Rendell to be kind of team player we need on the Federal Bench.
Clinton required a bit more than a good word. As I understand and remember from a source who worked with Mr. Rendell, Clinton required 250,000 good words, transfered from Rendells campaign chest to one of Team Clinton's. $250,000 for the Judgeship, $250,000 for the Appeals level.
Who says Judges can't be fair? Why of course a Judge can be fair. Just sometimes there's a fee for fairness.
I agree with you. It almost seems as if LK was trying to give Rendell a favorable backlash in the media and in the eyes of the public.
After the violence, Johnny Morris got before the cameras and claimed that the violence was in response to "anti-Hillary" and "anti-Chelsea" slogans being shouted by the patriots. Then later on TV, I saw Rendell repeating the same lies. Now, how did he know to say that? It was because it was one of the pre-arranged agreed-upon talking points. They knew there was going to be violence, and knew what the cover story was going to be.Sure sounds that way, Kevin.
I sure hope that the case isn't lost by the time they get to you.
Not sure it will matter though. Rendell owns the Philly vote fraud machine. I am not sure he is beatable no matter how many actual votes we win over statewide.
Gee,I wonder what would happen to any of US who told a judge they would walk away from a court proceeding they were ordered to be at?
BTW,all you NRA members should know that Rendell and the LaPierre/senile Heston clique are bestest buddies. So good in fact that the NRA agreed to ban conclealed weapons by PA CCW permit holders at the NRA convention in Philly!
God Bless Don and Teri.
So we all agree that this is poltical harrasment and not a legal deposition?
Klayman is an ego maniac who will cause Don and Terri more harm than good.
Actually it could be a lot worse. You could have the Republican Senator from Pennsylvania who was chief lawyer for the Warren Commission and who let Clinton off in the Senate trial. At least Rendell believes in American law and not Scotish.
I imagine if there were any real dirt on him, his teamsters opponents would have used it.
I'm not being naive, just hopeful.
Perhaps, but Rendell certainly didn't come off favorable in my reading of the article (Of course, I'm biased).
Nothing if we were asked the same kind of questions totally unrelated to our purpose for being there. People being deposed have a right not to answer certain questions at a deposition and can be forced to answer those questions only after the Federal judge has heard the question and thinks it has any probative value. Typical Klayman crap, he will probably end up with the Adams paying Rendell a million dollars.
EXCELLENT questions!!! Too bad you weren't there.
Probably made Rendell victory inevitable but then Klayman got his fifteen minutes of fame. Why anyone agrees to associate with him is beyond me. My favorite moment of the entire Florida mess was when our favorite Florida Judge told Klayman to sit down and shut up as he was there only as an observer.
Klayman is an ego maniac who will cause Don and Terri more harm than good.
So it seems. I would be interested in knowing all of the questions he asked. We can only hope he asked some good zingers, but experience makes me think not!
Spoken like a good CommieNazi. And folks wondered how it happened in Germany .....
That's not the same thing as saying you can just get up and walk out any time you want. Cross one of those prima donnas on the bench,and they WILL lock you up.
The choice was between Larry Klayman and Mark Levin. Certain Freepers who are no longer with us steered Don and Teri very strongly towards Klayman. Ultimately, they went with Judicial Watch instead of Landmark Legal Foundation because they were set up to represent Don in all phases of the complex case, from the several criminal cases to the civil lawsuit. Landmark Legal Foundation was not able to do that.
Larry shines light on cockroaches.
GOP cockroaches applauded when the light was on the 'Rats...
but they began whining when it caught them lurking in the shadows.
There is no doubt that Philly politics stink, whether it's Don and Terri's incident with Morris/Rendell...
or unrelated incidents over the years with Arlen Sphincter, Frank Rizzo, etc. etc. etc.
Just the same, I'm not sure what Larry thinks he's up to with this line of questioning...
It seems pretty superficial... at least AS REPORTED in the lamestream media.
Even so, it doesn't hurt to flash that spotlight around at random a little...
Ya never know what little cockroach you might catch scurrying for cover...
And Philly is infested with 'em.
But some of the questions seemed out there enough to inspire ridicule.
