  • Dennis Kucinich: I'm no fan of Trump's but he's got a point about wiretapping

    President Trump’s assertion that his phones at Trump Tower were tapped last year has been treated as hilarious—and in some circles as beyond contempt. But I can vouch for the fact that extracurricular surveillance does occur, regardless of whether it is officially approved. I was wiretapped in 2011 after taking a phone call in my congressional office from a foreign leader. That a secret recording had been made of this call was revealed to me by the Washington Times in 2015, a full two years after I left office. The newspaper’s investigative reporters called me, saying they had obtained a...

    Jewish World Review ^ | 4-10-15 | Dick Morris
    Revelations from emails purloined by a Romanian hacker show that Hillary Clinton was being secretly advised about Libya -- before and after the Benghazi terrorist attack -- by an off-the-shelf private spook group associated with controversial former Clinton confidante Sydney Blumenthal that claimed to be helping the Libyan opposition and considered placing ground operatives near the border. What's this all about? It's not completely clear, but apparently the goal of the rogue group, which included a former high level CIA covert operative and a former U.S. General, was, at the very least, to gather and provide sensitive reports to the...

    Former Democratic (not Republican) Congressman Dennis Kucinich just brought this new Clinton ad to my attention. He walked into my office and showed me. I watched the ad…and I pulled up the transcript from the complete interview from which the edited clips come. The HRC ad – at least the portion I am in with Congressman Trey Gowdy – is dishonest. It is not complete and it is intended to convey a false message. The HRC campaign should pull this ad. The ad shows Chairman Gowdy saying ‘it could be’ when I pointed out that a delay in releasing the...

    The chairman of a special House committee created to investigate the 2012 Benghazi tragedy on Monday instructed his staff to review secretly recorded tapes and intelligence reports that detail Hillary Rodham Clinton’s role in advocating and executing the war in Libya, opening the door for a possible expansion of his probe. Rep. Trey Gowdy’s decision to seek a review of the materials, first highlighted in a series of Washington Times stories last week, carries consequences for the 2016 election in which Mrs. Clinton is expected to seek the presidency. It could also move the committee to examine the strained relationship...

    It really breaks your heart when you see trust that is so cynically manipulated “We came, we saw, he died.”—Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton laughingly gloating over the death of Muammar Gaddafi (1942-2011) Clinton was in Tripoli earlier this week for talks with leaders of Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC). [A] reporter asked if [Clinton thought] Qaddafi’s death had anything to do with her surprise visit to show support for the Libyan people. “No,” she replied, before rolling her eyes and saying “I’m sure it did” with a chuckle. —Corbett Daly, “CBS News” 10/20/11 “... there was a distortion...

Rep.

He also said President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney should “absolutely” be in jail for their role...

    Representative Ron Paul says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi removed a section from a bill passed by Congress which would have barred the U.S. from going to war with Iran without a congressional vote, claiming she did so at the behest of the leadership of Israel and AIPAC. Paul, a former Republican presidential contender who formally removed himself from the party’s nomination race last week, makes the allegation on C-SPAN during a recently held foreign policy conference in Virginia. Paul says Pelosi’s first act as House Speaker in 2006 was to “deliberately” remove a portion of a legislative spending bill which...

Cruz agrees, saying that any attempt to arm the rebels would be senseless because you...

He went on to warn against attempting to “minimize” an intervention by terming it a “targeted strike.” Such a strike, he said, would still constitute an act of war. Kucinich also blasted the Obama administration for “rushing” into what he said could become a third world war, and he cast doubt on reports by rebels of governmental forces using chemical weapons. He declared that the use of chemical weapons in Syria was a “pretext.” “The verdict is in before the facts have been gathered,”...

    Dennis Kucinich, longtime Democratic Congressman from Ohio, has finally put an end to speculation about his intention in regards to a Washington State Congressional seat. As strange as this situation is, after eight terms consistently being reelected, Ohio had enough negative population growth to end up losing two Congressional seats. Kucinich ended up in a district that was merged with a neighboring district, and was forced into a showdown with Marcy Kaptur, the Dem currently seated in that other district. Despite repeated visits to Washington State, even before his primary loss, and a fair deal of support from some local...

As a result of redistricting, Kucinich has been forced into a primary battle with fellow Democrat Mary Kaptur, whose campaign funding was recently reported as almost seven times that of Kucinich.

By a 225-201 margin, lawmakers debating an annual Pentagon spending bill adopted an amendment restricting Washington's ability to help fighters looking to overthrow longtime Libyan strongman Moamer Kadhafi. The House was expected to vote Friday on approving the underlying bill, but the provision on Libya's rebels could face stiff opposition in Senate, which must approve the legislation to send it to Obama to sign into law.

I wish there was a pageant so he could wear the sash he probably made for himself. Look at how he looks "forward" from right to the left like we live in an Asian culture. Then again being "progressive" requires backward thinking, so I guess he has that right.If his wife were in congress is it safe to say she would be America's most courageous congresswoman? She would, after all, have to admit to being Mrs. Kucinich.So...

    WASHINGTON (CN) - Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich says he suffered permanent injuries from biting an olive pit hidden in the sandwich wrap he bought at a House of Representatives cafeteria. He demands $150,000. The former presidential hopeful sued Restaurant Associates, which operates the cafeteria in the Longworth Office Building, its parent company, Compass Group USA, and food suppliers Performance Food Group Co. and Foodbuy LLC. Kucinich seeks damages for negligence, in Superior Court.

    With the upcoming round of redistricting threatening to end his career, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is taking his case to the court of public opinion in an attempt to stave off the elimination of his district. Kucinich, a two-time presidential candidate just elected to an eighth term in his Cleveland-area seat, is already in reelection mode. He’s reaching out to voters and blasting e-mails to his local and national supporters in anticipation of an uncertain fate in 2012 — a surprisingly urgent pace that reflects the gravity of the situation confronting the outspoken liberal lawmaker. With newly released census figures...

  • Has Ohio's 10th Congressional District seen enough of Kucinich yet? [Denis d'Menace reamed well]

    Could the voters produce a Republican sweep thorough enough to whisk away Dennis Kucinich? It's hard to imagine. It's harder yet to get one's hopes up. But a very credible Republican candidate is running against Cleveland's unrepresentative representative this year, and residents of the 10th Congressional District should be falling all over themselves to elect him. His name is Peter J. Corrigan. He's a businessman with expertise in the financial side of companies and -- of all things -- physics. In other words, he's not stupid.

Raul Grijavla (D, AZ-07)] who provided letters of introduction and support to the pro-terrorist groups Code Pink/Global Exchange in 2004.  Those groups used these letters to facilitate their delivery over a half a million dollars’ worth of aid to terrorists in Fallujah actively fighting American troops; which is, by the way, treason by any reasonable interpretation of the US Constitution....

    The Weekly Standard ^ | Oct 18, 2010 | WILLIAM KRISTOL
    THE WEEKLY STANDARD has obtained the results of a private poll conducted last night in Ohio-10, the Cleveland-area district held for seven terms by Democrat Dennis Kucinich. Kucinich has been widely viewed as safe—even though he fell short of 60 percent of the vote in 2008, and the district has a Cook PVI of only Dem +8. The poll (based on a small but respectable 319 person sample, with a margin of error of 5.6 percent, weighted to eliminate gender bias) shows Kucinich ahead of his opponent, Peter Corrigan, by only 4 percent. The profile of undecided voters suggests they...

    WASHINGTON - A year ago, an activist group from the Seattle area gave Howard Dean (news - web sites) a thin, golden statue of a backbone. The Oscar-like award honored the former Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont governor for standing up against the Iraq (news - web sites) war and other Bush administration policies. Now, as Dean settles into his new role as head of the Democratic Party, that golden spine has come to represent, for many liberal Democrats, Dean's potential to develop a tougher, take-no-prisoners attitude among the party faithful. "There's no gut-check required for Dean. Dean just needs...

    Cleveland, OH—In a tear-filled press conference, Dennis Kucinich, D-OH, reported the atrocities committed by Rahm Emmanuel in the Air Force One shower. In a short statement, Kucinich detailed how he was tortured, humiliated and cajoled until he relented to vote for healthcare. According to Kucinich, the tactics—including whipping him with a wet towel—lasted for several hours before reaching their final destination in Cleveland.

    In December, I posted ratings for each Democratic Representative based on how they voted on 10 key agenda items in 2009. The idea was to see how each Democrat voted relative to the partisan slant of his district; a Democrat voting for the cap-and-trade bill in a Republican-leaning district would get quite a bit of credit for that, for instance, while one voting for the same measure in a district with a PVI of D+15 would get almost no credit for the vote since almost every Representative from such a district voted for the bill anyway. The analysis concluded that...
