[BREITBART] Flight records obtained by Breitbart News show Democratic Party donor Dr. Salomon Melgen's private jet was in New Jersey near Sen. Bob Menendez's home on April 8, 2012--Easter Sunday last year. From there, it flew straight to the Dominican Republic.
Menendez and his staff have not answered when asked repeatedly whether the Senator was on that flight. They also have not provided any accounting as to where Menendez was on Easter Sunday, either.
The flight records show Melgen's plane was in the Dominican Republic on a frequent basis. The jet was there in late March until April 2, at which point Melgen's plane flew from La Romana International airport in the Dominican Republic to West Palm Beach, Florida. The flight path records, compiled by FlightAware, show Melgen's plane stayed in West Palm Beach for a few days after that.
Florida Doctor way behind on taxes and allegedly broke donates over $700,000 to Demo super PAC; flies private plane to DR over 100 times....sometimes diverting stopping off in beltway; also has interest security and maritime shipping containers and whores.
CBP Private Flier regs. Department of Homeland Security and Director Janet Napolitano, can you tell us anything about the good Doctor's many trips and frequent travels? Oh, sorry to hear about your sudden illness and resignation.
He's a New Jersey Donk pol. Nothing to see here. Move on. Heck the last time we had this scenario, the NJ Supreme Court overruled their own laws to get Lautenberg on the ballot to make sure the seat remained a 'D'.
Often progressives consider the act of saying or doing something the accomplishment. In the case of universal healthcare it does not matter much if more or less people have healthcare. What matters is that control has been increased and GIvernment has expanded.
Today, True the Vote filed a federal lawsuit against the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections regarding the contest for the 18th Congressional District in Florida ¬-- the Allen West race. The case is brought under the 1993 Motor Voter law. (Full, yet totally unnecessary disclosure: I am one of the lawyers who brought the case, along with Michael Barnett). IMO, if Romney had 1/10 of Allen West's guts O & Co would be out on their ass.
Romney showed up to a gun fight without a weapon. Whether you like it or not, negative campaigning works. You got to be just as nasty and ugly as your opponent when they've reduced it all to the full time pursuit and retention of power for power sake.
Demographics do matter, but not so much when voters won't turn out for you. Romney inspired Karl Rove, some Rockefeller types and Mormons -- and no one else.
The good news is that we could have a very big 2014, especially without a RINO headliner dragging down the whole ticket. Rove knows this, which is why he is working today to keep Tea Party types from even fielding candidates.
It's not a new problem. At the time of the revolution, about 1/3 of the population wanted independence, 1/3 wanted the crown and 1/3 didn't care. The job of the two opposing sides is to convince the middle.
Today we are calling the middle "low information" voters, but it is just as accurate to call them "highly emotional" voters. They get scared easily. They also get excited easily. But they will never, ever get excited about a candidate who doesn't excite his own base. How often does a candidate win based on not being as terrible as the other guy? It's a losing strategy.
As a college student in the 1970s, John Brennan, President Obama's nominee for CIA director, traveled in Indonesia where -- he recalled in a speech in New York in 2010 -- "despite my long hair, my earring and my obvious American appearance, I was welcomed throughout that country, in a way that is a reflection of the tremendous warmth of Islamic cultures and societies." Actually, its a reflection on the warmth of Southeast Asian cultures. Had he gone to Bali, which is the remaining Hindu part of Indonesia, he'd have been received just as warmly. Thai hospitality is well-known, and the Laos might even be more hospitable than the Thais, if that's possible. I believe Sri Lanka is in the same league, though I've never been there.
Brennan's Feb. 13, 2010 address to a meeting at the Islamic Center at New York University, facilitated by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), A Moslem umbrella group established by the Saudi Moslem Students Association.
provided an insight into his views on Islam, a faith which he said during the speech had "helped to shape my own world view."
Travels around the world over more than three decades had taught him about "the goodness and beauty of Islam," said Brennan, whose 25-year career at the CIA until 2005 included a stint as station chief in Riyadh. If that's the case then I'm sure he's just handing out soft soap to what he hopes are rubes.
"I was literally sick to my stomach," said Ramla Bile of Minneapolis. "My identity is not a costume, and it's not OK for cultures to be turned into caricatures."
Police Chief Thomas Smith immediately opened an investigation. Police spokesman Howie Padilla confirmed that an officer is depicted in the picture, but could not release his identity Monday.
"The St. Paul Police Department has worked hard to establish a strong and respectful relationship with our Muslim communities, and I will not allow these types of images to erode that relationship," Smith said in a written statement. "Diversity is one of the greatest strengths of the city of St. Paul, and we expect each one of our officers to respect and take pride in serving each of our diverse communities."
"The city and the mayor's office take this very seriously, and the mayor will personally monitor it very closely," said Mayor Chris Coleman's spokesman Joe Campbell.
Somali and Muslim community activists called for swift disciplinary actions and cultural sensitivity training. The Minnesota chapter of the Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR-MN) offered training.
