    This installment exposes the worse of the Democrat mayors Chapter Nine: Corrupt Democrat mayors Frank Hague From 1917 to 1947 Frank Hague, himself a street hoodlum “made good,” was the Democrat boss of Jersey City New Jersey and its mayor. Hague literally punched and stole his way to the Jersey City’s mayor’s office. He was the absolute king of Jersey City and twice used “his” judges and fraudulent paid witnesses to falsely convict a political opponent (a naïve ‘reformer’) and send the man to prison. He frequently declared, “I am the law.” Hague was so powerful that Democrat President Franklin...

    The argument against liberals ever being in charge of our lives can be reduced to a single word: Detroit. Detroit has fallen from its position as one of the greatest cities in America at the beginning of the 1950s to a perfect reminder of what liberal Democrats will do when given enough power and enough time to show who they really are. “The Motor City” had an unbroken succession of liberal Democrat mayors for more than 40 years and each of these men has contributed to the steady decline of their city. Acting in concert with greedy unions these mayors...

    Has Nancy Pelosi seen a newspaper lately? (Pro tip, hon: Like the Obamacare monstrosity, you have to read it to find out what's in it.) I'd love to see her face in the wake of the veritable epidemic of Democratic corruption now sweeping the country. Pelosi's blink count must be off the charts. I'm going to make it easy on Pelosi and put all of the latest cases in one handy rogue's gallery reference list. But let's not be naive. It's clear to me that the Barack Obama/Eric Holder DOJ is clearing the decks before the midterms. Prediction: The FBI's...

    Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick should be sent to prison for at least 28 years for “astonishing” corruption that enriched him and his family while a desperate city slid toward financial collapse, prosecutors said Thursday. The 51-page filing came a week before Kilpatrick is to be sentenced in federal court for two dozen crimes, including racketeering conspiracy, fraud and tax offenses. The government presented a scathing summary of evidence from his months-long trial and said the corruption tops all recent cases prosecuted elsewhere in federal court. Detroit “desperately needed resolute leadership. Instead it got a mayor looking to cash in...

    Ten days ago, intern-bullying Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh disappeared from public view, stopped showing up to meetings and deleted all traces of social media in the midst of a municipal struggle swirling around a possible city bankruptcy. Today, he's facing serious allegations of misconduct with a recent high school graduate. A woman, who has chosen to remain unidentified, told her son's vice principal at Frederick Douglass Academy for Young Men that she was concerned about gifts he was receiving through Pugh, who runs a mentoring program (named after him: the Charles Pugh Leadership Forum) for students at the...

    Councilman Kwame Kenyatta and a packed room of Detroiters warned today of an impending revolt against state intervention, urging residents to stock up on canned food and supplies. “Even the Bloods in the hood fight for their territory,” Kenyatta said during a 20-minute monologue on the civil rights struggle at today’s city council meeting. “You are going to have to drag me out of here for me to leave.” Kenyatta cited Frederick Douglass, a former slave who became an intellectual and civil rights icon, because of his position that black people must sacrifice their lives, if necessary, to win freedom...

    Students in high schools around Michigan and the nation are being taught how former U.S. Representative Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, D-Detroit, was “more interested in finding solutions than focusing on politics,” according to a 2005 American Government textbook still in use. “The best public policy is bipartisan,” Kilpatrick is quoted as saying on page 339 of a profile of her called, “Voices on Government,” in Prentice Hall Magruder’s “American Government." Except, nobody considered Kilpatrick, the mother of ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, to be bipartisan in the 14 years she served in the U.S. House of Representatives. “Kilpatrick had one of the...
