Corruption Scandals Led to Harry Reid’s Abrupt “Retirement”

 

JUDICIAL WATCH

You’d never know it from the mainstream media puff pieces of Harry Reid’s sudden retirement, but it was a long string of corruption scandals-including a recent one involving his attorney son-that drove the veteran Nevada senator to abruptly leave public office.

For nearly a decade Judicial Watch has investigated and exposed Reid’s involvement in a multitude of transgressions and JW even warned the Senate Ethics Committee, but not surprisingly, no action was ever taken. On multiple occasions the Senate minority leader appeared on JW’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list for his role in a number of political scandals that got more serious as his seniority and clout in Congress increased.

As far back as 2006 Reid was in hot water for violating Senate rules by concealing a seven-figure payoff on a suspicious land deal orchestrated by a longtime friend known for political bribery and mob ties. The influential senator secretly collected a $1.1 million profit on land he hadn’t personally owned for years. To hide the deal, Reid transferred ownership, legal liability and tax consequences to a company owned by a former casino lawyer who has been investigated by federal authorities. Months earlier Red got busted for accepting gifts from a state agency trying to influence him. In that scheme the lawmaker quietly took very expensive ringside boxing tickets from the Nevada Athletic Commission while that state agency was trying to influence him on the sport’s federal regulation.

Obama Was Hand-Picked & NOT a Natural Born Citizen – Congress Knew It & Protected Him

The further I travel down this rabbit hole, the more I feel divorced from the good conservative people that I choose to call my own. I hold some stories back from our readers. My thought is that people have a hard enough time embracing the basic fact that our government is corrupt on both sides of the aisle. If you knew how corrupt I thought these people really were, I feel like you’d rush to the phone and soon bad men would show up to haul me off in a straitjacket.

Do they still do that?

Regardless, today I want to show you something that might leave you questioning everything around you.

Welcome to my world.

In 1975 a representative named Joe Bingham introduced an amendment to remove the “natural born citizen” constitutional requirement to become President.

Why is that important?

Because it was not until almost 30 years later that the issue would be addressed again. And it was not addressed only once, but multiple times. This is all part of congressional record.

Remarkably, it just so happened to coincide with the meteoric rise of a man named Barack Obama who currently sits in the People’s House.

I am about to share with you a brilliant piece of research from the Article II Political Action Committee. After reading it the foremost question on my mind is, “If the natural born citizen definition only requires one citizen parent then why did they seemingly try so hard to change the law for Barack Obama?”

Judge Napolitano – Hillary Clinton Is Eligible for Criminal Prosecution

Independent Sentinel

The Hillary Clinton email scandal is not simply a scandal. She broke the law and she did it more than once. Will she be prosecuted for it? Judge Napolitano was asked that question and in the end, she could be but it will depend on the prosecutor.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has given us her word that she only destroyed personal emails, but she has refused to turn over her husband’s server. She brazenly wiped the server clean when it was subpoenaed.

Information on Benghazi, the Russian reset and all the other dealings she has been involved in are lost. Communications with her aides, including Huma Abedin, are lost. Possible information about donations to her charity from foreign nations is gone. Schedule information is also gone.

She has clearly broken the law and the public was told to just trust her.

Trey Gowdy is not just trusting her.

House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy delivered a letter to Hillary Clinton’s lawyers on Friday demanding Clinton hand over her email server to a third party to see what email remains on it even though she said she has wiped the server clean.

“I am formally requesting Secretary Clinton make her server available to a neutral, detached and independent third-party for immediate inspection and review,” Gowdy wrote, adding that the State Department’s Office of Inspector General could be a possible third party to examine the email.

“(S)hould Secretary Clinton continue to maintain that the server and its contents are hers alone, I will inform the Speaker of the House of Representatives so that he can use the full powers of the House to take the necessary steps to protect the best interests of the American people,” Gowdy wrote, according to The Blaze.

The full powers of the House would allow them to arrest her though that is unlikely.

Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer asked Judge Andrew Napolitano Monday morning if Hillary Clinton could be in trouble legally for her recent crimes related to the destruction of her government documents/emails. Judge Napolitano said that she’s in trouble legally if there is a prosecutor who will prosecute her.

The Judge said she broke the law several times and the same laws applied to others should be applied to her.

Hillary Clinton diverted government documents from the government to her husband’s server; she admitted to putting classified information in a non-classified venue which is the same crime as General Petraeus who had them in a drawer; and she admitted to destroying subpoenaed evidence after she was notified it was under subpoena – that’s obstruction of justice.

Hillary Clinton made these judgements instead of the State Department, the Judge said.

Judge Napolitano said this case should be presented to a Grand Jury to let them decide.

Evan Bayh, former Democratic senator from Indiana, said the voter’s won’t care. Judge Napolitano said they will care because the Clintons have acted as if they were above the law for years.

[The server will probably go on fire next and when she testifies, she won’t remember a thing.]

Watch the Judge:

Remember when it was a big deal when Richard Nixon or his secretary allegedly erased 18 1/2 minutes of Watergate Tapes? The entire Watergate scandal was blown well out of proportion but how is it Hillary can erase years of government documents?

It’s so important to the left that they are still trying to retrieve the data from the tapes. Rosemary Woods said she accidentally erased five minutes of the tape.

Does Ted Cruz Have a “Natural Born Citizen” Issue When It Comes to His Presidential Bid?

Comments by: 1 Dragon

First of all, I am not a Constitutional Lawyer and I don’t play one on TV but since Sen, Ted Cruz announced he was running for President, I have listened to the radio talk jocks and they have talked around the Natural Born Citizen (NBC) issue. Mike Gallagher stated yesterday that Ted Cruz is a NBC because of the Nationality Act of 1940.

We Mike may talk a good game and remember, I am not a Constitutional Lawyer but I find no where in the Nationality Act of 1940 that says anything about a Natural Born Citizen. It does talk about American citizenship and naturalization but not Natural Born Citizens.

After the past 6 years of lies, cover-up, corruption and tyranny from 0bama and his StormTroopers, the ONLY ONE I trust is God.

Many conservative Americans are probably celebrating today and enjoying an “in your face, Democrats” honeymoon phase. At midnight last night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) officially announced he will seek the office of the President of the United States. This makes it official and from comments perused on various articles across the internet media, people are taking out their checkbooks to contribute to his campaign.

Before delving any further, a few things need to be made clear. I am not a Democrat nor a Republican. I have no party affiliation. I am an equal opportunity criticizer and a constitutional conservative Christian. My allegiance resides with the Supreme Law of the Land – the Constitution of the united States of America. Regardless of how popular, conservative or constitutional supporting a candidate or elected official claims, they reap criticism when they choose to deviate from their publicly acclaimed stance for any reason.

The issue at hand remains the eligibility of Ted Cruz to run for President under the “natural born citizen” requirement. Yes, Ted Cruz has released his birth certificate indicating he was born in Canada to a US citizen mother. His father, however, was not a US citizen at the time of his birth. Interestingly, claims emerged suggesting Cruz could have dual citizenship – Canadian and US. Cruz stated he would renounce his Canadian citizenship assuming he had dual citizenship.

Of treaties and treason

obama_treason 

Flopping Aces

democrats have been fast and loose with accusations of treason of late. On the one hand, they threw the accusation at Tom Cotton for reminding everyone that the Senate gets offer advice and consent to any binding treaties the President engages in. Soon after they agreed to support in principle what Cotton stipulated.

Hey, says James Lewis over at American Thinker, as long as treason is in the air…

What’s more, by bringing that ticklish word “treason” into the public debate, the left is opening up a can of worms. We can now ask some crucial questions that have been taboo until now.
•Does Hillary Clinton’s personal aide Huma Abedin, a lifelong Muslim Brotherhood acolyte, represent a clear and present danger in time of war?
•Did Hillary Clinton knowingly allow Abedin access to top secret State Department documents via Hillary’s private email accounts?”

And, to echo Prince Turki al-Faisal this week,
•Is Obama now opening the door to nuclear proliferation to rogues and terrorists, by letting Iran have nuclear weapons, thereby betraying this country, our allies and the entire world?

Those questions must now be asked. They should be asked as a matter of national survival.

Obama Launches His Plan to Commit Treason Against the United States of America

obama-finger

Conservative Tribune

The nation of Israel has hordes of enemies waiting just beyond the borders of the Jewish democracy. However, the most dangerous country to Israel’s continued existence may be an ally.

Sources contend that President Barack Obama might stop blocking a United Nations resolution that would “call for the resumption of political talks to conclude a final peace settlement” in the wake of Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election as prime minister.

Such a move would favor the Palestinian Authority in peace talks by automatically dictating a two-state solution regardless of Palestine’s behavior.

ISIS & Iran – in a Race to Islam’s Armageddon?

Family Security Matters

Graeme Wood recently rattled a lot of people on the Left of the U.S. ideological spectrum by writing something in The Atlantic that many of those not wearing PC blinders already knew. Wood, shockingly, reported that ISIS really is Islamic, just as its name proclaims and its leaders insist, directly contradicting President Obama’s own notorious assessment. Per Wood, “The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic.”

Islamists get their motivation from mainstream Islamic texts, albeit from a highly literalist reading.  Wood quoted Princeton professor of Islam and specialist in its extremist ideologies, Bernard Haykel, who went a step further: “What’s striking about them is not just the literalism, but also the seriousness with which they read these texts… There is an assiduous, obsessive seriousness that Muslims don’t normally have.”
