    Civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson defended Monday controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright, saying that it was a “source of pain” to see him criticized in the media. “I know it’s a source of pain for me to see him used as an object of degradation and manipulated the way he’s been used the media as if he’s some sort of enemy of the state. It’s not fair and it’s not true,” said Jackson on MSNBC’s “Daily Rundown.” “It pains me to see him used as an object of degradation.” Jackson said that Wright had developed an influential ministry, one that...

    Wu’s return shows perks don’t vanishBy Jordy Yager - 09/13/11 05:00 AM ET Lawmakers’ clear embarrassment over former Rep. David Wu’s (D-Ore.) surprise appearance on the House floor for President Obama’s jobs speech highlights the privileges former members enjoy after leaving Congress. Wu, who gained notoriety last year for sending a picture to his staff of himself dressed in a tiger costume, resigned from his seat in July amid allegations that he sexually assaulted the daughter of a campaign donor. But the disgraceful exit from Congress didn’t prevent Wu from showing up last week to sit with his colleagues during...

    Leave Congress in disgrace? Collect one million dollarsThe Daily Caller Thu, Jul 28, 2011 Oregon Democratic Rep. David Wu is leaving Congress without his dignity — after donning a tiger costume and allegedly sexually assaulting an 18-year-old woman — but he will have a generous congressional pension to ease the pain. According to the National Taxpayers Union, Wu stands to benefit from nearly $1 million in pension payments. And his case is far from unique. In fact, congressmen convicted of crimes — including former Reps. James Traficant of Ohio, William Jefferson of Louisiana and Duke Cunningham of California — can...

David Wu openly hungered to serve on the powerful House Appropriations Committee that controls federal spending, even though new members rarely get on the panel. Wu's fellow Oregon Democrats thought any opening should go to Rep. Darlene Hooley. Wu dutifully joined his colleagues in signing a letter to House Minority Leader Dick Gephardt, D-Mo., urging her appointment to the committee. But Wu, still heady with his sudden ascent to Congress after winning a come-from-nowhere victory in his first campaign, wouldn't leave it at that -- and in the end, doomed himself and Hooley....

    <p>I read occasionally of former Weatherman Bill Ayers and his wife Bernardine Dohrn, both now not only accepted, despite their bombing campaign against America in the 1960s and 70s, but successful , establishment educators whose opinions on social issues are taken seriously. Every time I see Ayers’ name I shudder with fear and rage and realize that I will never be able to erase the mark he left on my life one evening 40 years ago.</p>

    During the April 16 debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, moderator George Stephanopoulos brought up “a gentleman named William Ayers,” who “was part of the Weather Underground in the 1970s. They bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol, and other buildings. He’s never apologized for that.” Stephanopoulos then asked Obama to explain his relationship with Ayers. Obama’s answer: “The notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was eight years old, somehow reflects on me and my values, doesn’t make much sense, George.” Obama was indeed only eight in...

    JERUSALEM – The board of a nonprofit organization on which Sen. Barack Obama served as a paid director alongside a confessed domestic terrorist granted funding to a controversial Arab group that mourns the establishment of Israel as a "catastrophe" and supports intense immigration reform, including providing drivers licenses and education to illegal aliens. The co-founder of the Arab group in question, Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi, also has held a fundraiser for Obama. Khalidi is a harsh critic of Israel, has made statements supportive of Palestinian terror and reportedly has worked on behalf of the Palestine Liberation Organization while it...

    Subversives for Obama Friday, 26th September 2008 There are two American election campaigns currently running. The first, in the mainstream media, accepts Barack Obama at face value, no questions asked, while it viciously turns over Sarah Palin and her family whom it subjects to lies, smears and character assassination. The second, being conducted in the blogosphere and (with one or two notable exceptions such as the Wall Street Journal) not alluded to at all by the mainstream media, is the site of verbal warfare between Camp Obama and bloggers who are practising journalism as it used to be practised –...

    First Congressional District candidate Joel Haugen (R-Scappoose), who is battling Republican officials in that district, called support from Oregon Republican Party officials a farce after they refused to rectify a situation where local county officials would not support his candidacy. “ORGOP's help is likely to be of the order of holding our jewelry while we get water boarded,” Haugen said in an email to sent from Minnesota, where he was attending a wedding. Haugen’s anger comes after Republican Party Chairman Vance Day issued a letter saying that ORGOP would support Haugen no matter who he has endorsed in the...

    I have just posted a trailer to a documentary I am making about the Chinese money laundering and nuclear espionage scandals of the Clinton administration known as Chinagate. The video, Chinagate: The Movie, is set for a summer release on the internet. I am making the film because I am determined not to let another Clinton back into the White House. We just cannot allow this to happen. Conservatives and moderates need to find a way to come together in '08. I have seen too much fighting amongst here lately and it is disconcerting. Check out the trailer and let...

    David Wu admits to 'inexcusable behavior' PORTLAND, Ore. - A Democratic congressman in a tight re-election race admitted Tuesday that while he was a college student 28 years ago, he was disciplined by school officials for "inexcusable behavior" toward an ex-girlfriend. The admission by Rep. David Wu, D-Ore., came immediately after a report published in The Oregonian newspaper saying a former girlfriend from college once claimed Wu tried to force her into having sex. The report said the woman, whom the newspaper did not identify, declined to comment, citing privacy concerns. In his statement, Wu said he had a "two-year...
