    Facing nearly two dozen federal fraud and conspiracy charges, former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown took the stand in her own defense on Thursday, saying she was left in the dark while her former chief of staff siphoned thousands of dollars from what prosecutors are calling a sham charity. The Florida Democrat told the jury she was betrayed by her former top aide, Elias Ronnie Simmons. I loved Ronnie Simmons like a son, said Brown, crying. A lot of young people in this community end up in jail. I never wouldve wanted that to happen to Ronnie. Federal prosecutors want Brown...

    Hillary Clinton generates events to support her narrative. For example, Clinton accused Trump of creating an atmosphere of violence at his rallies. To support the narrative she paid people to instigate trouble at Trump rallies. She has long had the narrative that Trump is connected with Russia. It began with accusations that Trumps adviser Paul Manafort was tied to Russia, and that Trump too was tied to Russia. That went nowhere. Now months later the narrative has advanced to Russia hacked the DNC. This claim is based on Dmitri Alperovitch and Crowdstrike. Given Clintons pattern of generating events to support...

    Al Sharpton’s National Action Network is producing a Washington D.C. theater production on voter “suppression.” The play will be performed tonight at the Shiloh Baptist Church in Washington D.C. with hopes of more performances to follow. Without any apparent sense of the irony, the National Action Network play is called “When Truth is Not Enough.” The play stars Dominique Sharpton. It is produced by NAN’s “Social Justice Ministry and the Music and Arts Ministry.” (See, I

    As Al Sharpton ran for mayor of New York City in 1997 and for president in 2003, fires at his offices reportedly destroyed critical financial records, and he subsequently failed to comply with tax and campaign filing requirements. As I write today at National Review, investigators deemed the 1997 fire at Sharptons campaign headquarters suspicious from the start. It began at a hair-and-nail salon one floor below, and FDNY photos show both traces of an incendiary puddle and what appears to be a singed rag next to a fuse box.

    Does the Welfare State Share the Blame? Nadya Suleman, the woman who became famous for having herself artificially inseminated in order to give birth to octuplets, earning herself the name Octomom, has been charged with welfare fraud.

    Representative Charlie Rangel (D-NY) recently expressed his puzzlement over the conservative wing of the Republican Party. In between incoherent ramblings and fragmented sentences, the congressman explained that the tea party is a cult group that suffers from an apparent illness. Politics is (sic) changing for me at this late age, to have to deal with a cult-type of group of people, said the man who recently allocated millions of taxpayer dollars to a New York library named in his honor. (Maybe hes speaking out of jealousy?) When a handful of people [I assume he is referring to the tea party...

    Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) predicted hell face a rough fight for reelection this cycle, but said he believes ObamaCare will be a boon to his campaign. Its going to be a rough one, but, you know, its like shooting crap. Either you win or you lose; you just cant stay even with the first shot, Rangel said on MSNBC on Tuesday. The long-serving Democrat had been considered a retirement risk, but announced earlier this month he plans to run for reelection. Hes likely to face a contentious primary fight from state Sen.

    "...Sharpton's National Action Network nonprofit, which is organizing the Martin protest marches, has repeatedly failed to pay taxes. The group currently owes $871,688 for unpaid "payroll taxes and related interest & penalties," according to its latest available Internal Revenue Service disclosure. The group claims to receive more than $3 million in contributions yearly. In 2008, Sharpton aides told the Associated Press that he had begun drawing only a "token" salary from his nonprofit to ease the burden on its finances, and in consideration of his substantial earnings from TV appearances. But IRS filings in the years since show he...

    Warren Buffett, in a New York Times Op-Ed piece Monday, is proposing a minimum tax on high incomes and a higher ceiling of $500,000 on increased taxes on wealthy Americans. "I support President Obama's proposal to eliminate the Bush tax cuts for high-income taxpayers. However, I prefer a cutoff point somewhat above $250,000 - maybe $500,000 or so," the Berkshire Hathaway head wrote. "Additionally, we need Congress, right now, to enact a minimum tax on high incomes. I would suggest 30 percent of taxable income between $1 million and $10 million, and 35 percent on amounts above that."

It was one of the counts in his 2010 Censure by the House. Of course, Rangel used to be Chairman of the House...
