    Daily Caller ^ | 110112 | Matt Boyle
    New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez had loud sex with different women nightly in his Washington, D.C., apartment, his former neighbor told the liberal gossip website Gawker. “We lived below him,” the former neighbor said, according to the website. “It was outrageous. When it started, we thought it was a one-time thing. But it went on for months — hours and hours of headbanging sex.” The report in the liberal Gawker comes on the heels of The Daily Caller’s early Thursday article about how Menendez allegedly paid two women in the Dominican Republic for sex.

    Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi headlined a high-dollar fundraiser in May that was attended by U.S.-based Islamist groups and individuals linked by the U.S. government to the Hamas jihad group and to the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood movement.The donors at the undisclosed May 16 event included Nihad Awad, the co-founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, according to data provided by the nonpartisan Investigative Project on Terrorism.The CAIR group was named an unindicted conspirator in a 2007 trial of a Hamas money-smuggling group.A covertly-taken photograph provided by the IPT shows Pelosi standing near Awad at the fundraiser. Roughly 30 people attended...

    Breaking: Eric Holder’s wife co-owns abortion clinic building run by indicted abortionist Thanks to pro-lifers Michelle Wolven and Catherine Davis, a small group of us have been on this story for weeks. While Michelle and Catherine were digging through online records of Georgia abortion clinics, they stumbled on the fact that Attorney General Eric Holder’s wife Sharon Malone Holder co-owns with her sister an Atlanta area abortion clinic building. The building is located at 6210 Old National Highway, College Park, Georgia. The business itself is called Old National GYN. The story was so big, Catherine handed it off to

    Obama’s Layoff Bomb: His policies are killing jobs. By Michelle Malkin In June, a diffident and self-deluded President Obama claimed that “the private sector is doing fine.” Last week, the private sector responded: Speak for yourself, buster. Who needs an “October Surprise” when the business headlines are broadcasting the imminent layoff bomb in neon lights? The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last Tuesday that employers issued 1,316 “mass layoff actions” (affecting 50 workers or more) in September; more than 122,000 workers were affected. USA Today financial reporter Matt Krantz wrote that “much of the recent layoff activity is connected to...

    [T]hings happened the other day on the West Side that made me laugh. Lance Tyson, candidate for 10th District state representative, told me earnestly that his race has been called “a fight for the soul of the Illinois Democratic Party.” The soul of the Democratic Party? Would that be, I asked incredulously, the same Democratic Party whose leaders — including Dick Durbin, Barack Obama and Mike Madigan — endorsed Rod Blagojevich for re-election in 2006 even though everybody knew the feds were already crawling all over him? Seems to me the party’s “soul” has been in jeopardy of being lost...

It was sick.” Residents said police warned them to beware of crooks pretending to be utility workers...</p>

    CHICAGO—Since the heyday of the city's machine politics, punching a straight Democratic ticket on Election Day has been as dependable a Chicago tradition as hot dogs without ketchup and the Cubs breaking their fans' hearts. But this November, the automatic vote is turning out to be a little too dependable for the state's Democratic leaders. The feared victory Tuesday of a former state lawmaker indicted on federal bribery charges has top Democrats scrambling to defeat one of their own. They've hand-picked a rival candidate, set up a separate "independent" political party for him and deployed their precinct operations in an...

    Patrick Moran, the son of Representative Jim Moran (D-Va), was caught on tape advising an undercover reporter on ways to fake IDs so invalid votes could be cast. Nevertheless, Virginia State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) declined to press charges. “Look, this type of thing is pretty standard for how Democrats try to manipulate elections in this state,” Cuccinelli observed. “If I filed a case every time they try to commit vote fraud I wouldn’t have the resources to pursue more serious crimes.” Cuccinelli also argued that “trying to take this kind of offense through the courts may not be...

    Critics are harping that Barack Obama is running a campaign that in its coarseness, smallness, and pettiness [i] marks a new low in American politics. Why are they so outraged? He has behaved this way ever since he moved into the Oval Office. Many people have criticized Barack Obama for his failures as president. His economic record is pathetic: trillions of dollars in new debt; anemic growth juiced up only by massive deficit spending, endless printing of money; zero interest rates that have proven so harmful to senior savers; regulations that are smothering businesses; a stimulus bill that reward Democratic...

    Breitbart ^ | 10/28/2012 | Breitbart has obtained emails that seem to directly contradict Plouffe’s answer, and also challenge the President’s notion that the DOE’s loan decisions were universally autonomous within the agency. The emails also lend even more credence to the theory that the loan to Abound Solar was political payback to Colorado’s wealthy Democratic benefactor and Gang-of-Four member, Pat Stryker.

The story said Wen, widely seen as the humane face of China's top leadership, was not directly linked to the holdings. But the association with such a fortune...

    A sensitive and peace-loving 16-year-old boy from an affluent Georgia suburb was fatally gunned down by a police sniper in his own house after he threatened to kill himself following a bad day at school. Young Andrew Messina cracked after receiving a bad grade and upon returning home he grabbed his parents .357 Magnum and told his mother he wanted to end his life. Panicked, she called the police to come and talk him down, but instead, an army of deputies, an armoured tank and a sniper arrived at their Towne Lake home.... ***** However, the Messina's attorney Chuck Pekor...

    DETROIT (WJBK) - Super cop Don Johnson - caught super-exposed? Nobody can accuse the Detroit Police department these days of being anything less than transparent. After placing a call to the mayor's office, Inspector Don Johnson, commanding officer of the Homeland Security division, was suspended with pay pending the results of an Internal Affairs investigation. Police sources say Johnson apparently texted a female subordinate a snapshot of his "johnson." We're also told the female subordinate is married but the photograph was found by her boyfriend, also a cop and also her subordinate. Trying to get our hands around this one,...

    So far in early voting 110 year old’s have made a pretty good showing for the Democrats; 2214 of them have voted either by mail or at a one-stop site (214 by mail and 2,000 at early voting sites). There are 1,420 Democrats confirmed in this group and 77 Unaffiliated voters and even 717 registered Republicans in this group perhaps voting for Obama too. Nothing against very old voters, but it is funny that these 110 year olds live in only 34 counties and 87% of them live in 4 counties - Guilford has voted 681 of them so far,...

In the statement, he said his office is "looking into possible instances of securities fraud based on allegations that officials at Abound Solar knew products the company was selling were defective, and then asked investors to invest in the company without telling them about the defective products." ...

    .......... [S]upport for Obama has more to do with European distaste for Middle America, characterised by “angry” Tea Party activists, guns, racism, climate-change denial and creationism. (We all like a laugh at creationists, but the main difference between the sort of unscientific beliefs espoused by religious Republicans and the secular bunkum believed by the Democrats is that you can get fired for questioning the latter’s PC doctrines.) It’s this arrogance and snobbery that drives European thinking about the US. A case in point is the Guardian’s unwittingly comic 2004 Operation Clark County, where they got various yellow-teethed Brits to condescendingly...

Earlier this month, the Associated Press published an analysis , stating, "businesses affiliated with the husband of Senator Claire McCaskill have received almost $40 million in federal subsidies for low-income housing developments during her first five years in office..."
