  • Ponzi Schemer Rothstein and the Democrats

    12/29/2009 6:59:47 AM PST · by Def Conservative · 2 replies · 308+ views
    Much is being made of the fact that mini-Madoff Scott Rothstein, the Fort Lauderdale lawyer who the government and his victims claim ran a $1.2 Billion Ponzi scam in South Florida was a major fundraiser for Republicans John McCain, Governor Charlie Crist, Senator John Ensign and the Republican Party of Florida. What the media has missed is that Rothstein switched to the Democrats after McCain’s loss, giving to Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and endorsing Florida Democratic candidate for Governor Alex Sink while giving the Florida Democratic Party $200,000.

    Harry Reid: 'Decriminalizing border crossings is not something that should be at the top of the list' Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said in an interview published Tuesday that decriminalizing border crossings "is not something that should be at the top of the list" for 2020 Democrats. “There are so many more important things to do,” the Nevada Democrat told Vice News, saying that the decriminalization of crossing the border illegally “should be way, way down at the bottom of the list.” He added: “People want a fair immigration system. They don’t want an open-door invitation for everybody...

    Congressional Democrats, even their leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, have been bullied into silence by the radicals who have grabbed media attention and who appear to have the ability to mobilize their followers to defeat recalcitrant Dems in primaries, the way that Joe Crowley’s long House career was abruptly terminated by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  So deep is the fear that virtually the entire presidential field has offered lip service to socialized medicine for all – including anyone who can cross our southern border, while keeping that border wide open. As serious policy, it is madness, as anyone who can...

    While Democrats consider more than 20 candidates hoping to become their party's nominee, the Republican National Committee is forging ahead with an August ground-game push to boost President Trump's reelection campaign in more than a dozen states. The RNC and the Trump Victory Committee launched an "Open for Business" tour last week featuring more than 30 events across 17 states to highlight the administration's economic achievements. In conjunction with the events hosted by surrogates, the committees have launched a six-figure digital ad buy targeting cities like Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, West Palm Beach, Miami and Las Vegas. The ads, which...

    DES MOINES, Iowa — As Democratic presidential candidates descended on the Iowa State Fair, a plane buzzed overhead, an ominous warning fluttering behind it on a banner: “Focus on Rural America.” Democrats hoping to win the White House in 2020 recognize how critical that advice is after 2016, when Hillary Clinton turned in strong performances in many cities and suburbs but lost rural voters 2-to-1, falling short to President Donald Trump by slim margins in Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Democrats clawed back some gains in rural counties in the 2018 midterm elections, and they want to build on that...

"And maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, 'OK, I personally like so and so better,' but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump."
  • Trump moves to cancel illegal immigrant family loophole

    The Washington Times ^ | August 20, 2019 | Dave Boyer, Stephen Dinan
    President Trump will move Wednesday to cancel the family “loophole” that’s allowed illegal immigrant parents and children to pour into the U.S., proposing new rules that would replace the 2015 Flores Settlement court order that created a de facto catch-and-release policy for the families. According to details provided by an administration official, migrant families could be held in detention together while their cases are heard by immigration judges. That would supersede the 20-day limit imposed by the federal judge in Flores. If the families can be held in detention, they can be deported, security experts say, and once people in...

    President Trump called National Rifle Association (NRA) CEO Wayne LaPierre on Tuesday to tell him that universal background checks for gun purchases are off the table, The Atlantic reported. The decision to oppose an initiative that has strong support in public polling signals an apparent backtracking by the president from initial comments he made following two mass shootings earlier this month in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that left 31 dead. Trump at the time indicated support for legislation on “meaningful background checks,” saying the issue was not a question of the NRA or political partisanship. “On background checks,...

    WASHINGTON — Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) isn’t happy that some of his party’s presidential candidates are pushing for Medicare for All and decriminalizing border crossings, two hot-button issues in the Democratic primary. In a half-hour phone conversation with VICE News, Reid was blunt when asked if he thought supporting Medicare for All would be problematic in the 2020 general election.

    Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney backstabbed President Donald Trump again this week and formed a political alliance with a top Democrat to go after the president. The Daily Beast reports that Romney held a secret meeting with former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- and they discussed how to get rid of Trump. While speaking with The Daily Beast, Reid lamented that he was "pretty damn worried" about Trump winning re-election in 2020. Reid has also reportedly been reaching out to certain congressional Republicans in an attempt to persuade them to publicly rebuke Trump. So it's not too surprising he...

    Joe Biden is being portrayed as the Democrats’ safest potential presidential nominee, despite his obvious flaws as a candidate. But one wonders how Biden’s history of swamp corruption will play if he actually faces the scrutiny of a national run. Biden’s family has gotten wealthy, like those of so many low-paid “public servants”–Tom Daschle and Harry Reid are obvious examples. How does that happen? Politico headlines: “Biden Inc. Over his decades in office, ‘Middle-Class Joe’s’ family fortunes have closely tracked his political career.” It begins:

    The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers’ network of billionaire, donor-class organizations is readying to financially back Democrats, so long as they promise to support amnesty for illegal aliens and vote to advance free trade at all costs. In a memo to its staff, the Koch-funded Americans for Prosperity (AFP) organization announced that the economic libertarian group is set to back any elected official in Washington, DC, — including Democrats — who support their agenda of amnesty for illegal aliens and endless free trade, and oppose the GOP voter-preferred economic nationalist agenda of less immigration and tariffs to protect American jobs. The...
  • Navy: No release of UFO information to the general public expected

    The U.S. Navy has drafted a procedure to investigate and catalogue reports of unidentified flying objects coming in from its pilots. But the service doesn’t expect to make the information public, citing privileged and classified reporting that is typically included in such files. Joe Gradisher, a spokesman for the office of the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare, said in a statement that the Navy expects to keep the information it gathers private for a number of reasons. “Military aviation safety organizations always retain reporting of hazards to aviation as privileged information in order to preserve the free...

    Pilots, both commercial and military, have been seeing weird things happening up in the sky for a very long time. The problem has always been that if you were heard talking about it, you’d be written off as some sort of loon and your career might well be over. That kept most of them from discussing or investigating anything anomalous that they might have come across. Now the United States Navy is putting a stop to those practices because there have been too many unidentified encounters with what appear to be very advanced aircraft and they want to get to...

    The U.S. Navy is drafting new guidelines for pilots and other employees to report encounters with "unidentified aircraft." The new effort comes in response to more sightings of unknown, advanced aircraft flying into or near Navy strike groups or other sensitive military facilities and formations, according to the service. "There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and/or unidentified aircraft entering various military-controlled ranges and designated airspace in recent years," the Navy said in a statement to Politico, which first reported the move. "For safety and security concerns, the Navy and the [U.S. Air Force] takes these reports very...

After eight days of testimony, the eight-member civil trial jury deliberated about an hour before declaring that Reid never proved the first of 10 questions they were asked to decide: that the device Reid, former senator from Nevada, used that day was a TheraBand made by Ohio-based Hygenic Corp....

    Trial starts in Las Vegas over Harry Reid’s exercise band injuries Former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid was seated in a wheelchair Monday when his lawyer paused to address the political views emanating from a group of potential jurors in a Las Vegas courtroom. “Our country is about as split as it could be,” said the attorney, Jim Wilkes. “We can’t fix policy today. We’re here about a civil lawsuit. This is about one person’s litigation.” Reid, now 79, sued the makers of a resistance exercise band after an incident that blinded him in his right eye more than four years...

    Former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid told a Nevada jury Thursday that his career was cut short by injuries he suffered when a TheraBand exercise device slipped from his hand and he fell in his home bathroom in 2015. From a wheelchair on the witness stand in a product liability lawsuit against Ohio-based device maker Hygenic Corp., the 79-year-old longtime Democratic leader covered half his face with his hand to indicate the bones he said were “smashed” when he spun around and fell against cabinets in his bathroom. Despite surgeries, he said he has irreparable retina damage and can only distinguish...
