They apparently mis-used an anti-terrorism statute and leaked privileged material seized from O’Keefe, in throwing the book at him (one crony literally threw a book at O’Keefe, on-camera) for his having dared to investigate Sen. Mary Landrieu (D – LA) the Princess. O’Keefe has filed ethics complaints.

Terry Bean; Creeper, Child Molester, Social Justice Warrior, Democrat Hero

When I read about Obama-bundler Terry Bean’s arrest for sodomizing a 15-year-old boy, [And don't tell me a 15 year old isn't a child when Obamacare is claiming that 25 year olds are children and the anti-gun left is claiming 22 year olds are children] I did not know that he was not just a Democrat activist but also a founder of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Nor did I realize that Bean is 66 years old and his boyfriend (who was also arrested) is 25.

eww

[BTW: The comments on Dan Savage’s blog are very much “so what” about the age difference; apparently it’s “heteronormative” to be repulsed by a 66 year old creeper molesting teenaged boys.] [And yes, intergenerational hetero relationships also gross people out.]

Anyway, I looked up Terry Bean’s Wikipedia page; figuring such a prominent Democrat with a massive ego probably has to have his own wikipedia page and figured it would list his proud accomplishments; founding two Democrat front operations gay rights organizations, hob-nobbing with Democrat politicians, taking on all of the appropriate causes. Like all good left-wing activists, he blamed Republicans for AIDS.

Bean decried the failure of the Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush administrations to respond to the crisis and threw his fundraising muscle behind Bill Clinton’s candidacy in 1992, because of his promise to address the AIDS crisis. He said, “I have way too many friends who have just too few T-cells in their blood to be able to survive four more years of George Bush. This is the politics of survival.”

This creeper was apparently quite the Democrat hero.

Terry Bean has received many awards for his political activism over the years, including from the Equity Foundation, the Victory Fund, the Human Rights Campaign, and Basic Rights Oregon.[citation needed] Former Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski declared August 23, 2008, to be “Terry Bean Equality Day” in Oregon, in recognition for the work he has done on LGBT rights causes since the 1970s.[19][23]

Reminds me of another gay activist hero, Larry Brinken.

Larry Brinkin, the iconic San Francisco gay activist who brought the nation’s first domestic partnership lawsuit in 1982, was arrested Friday on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography, police said.

[The San Francisco Board of Supervisors declared] the first seven days of February 2010 “Larry Brinkin Week” in honor of his advocacy.

So, why bring all of this up? Simple, the activist left is full of smug, self-righteous activists who need to be taken down a peg or two. Also, to understand the real agenda of the progressive left, you have to see the kind of people who are leaders in the progressive left, who are lauded by the progressive left, and realize how dark, evil, and creepy they are. And also be repulsed at how many others on the left are willing to defend them.

Another Gay Left Activist Creeper

Once again, an activist on the gay left turns out to be a creepy pervert with an unhealthy interest in underage boys. [Hat Tip: Annie]

Bean, 66, a prominent gay rights activist and major Democratic Party fundraiser, was arrested at his home in Southwest Portland and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center.

The indictment charges Bean with two counts of third-degree sodomy, a felony, and one count of third-degree sex abuse, a misdemeanor, police said.

The alleged incident involved a sexual encounter in Eugene with a 15-year-old boy.

Bean has been one of the state’s biggest Democratic donors and an influential figure in gay rights circles in the state. He helped found two major national political groups, the Human Rights Campaign and the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, and has been a major contributor for several Democratic presidential candidates, including Barack Obama.

Bean’s Flickr account shows him talking with Obama at several events, posing with first lady Michelle Obama and numerous other political figures, including former President Bill Clinton.

Birds of a feather.

Reached for comment, Obama’s Safe School Czar replied, “I hope he used a condom.”*

What Obama Pajama Boy Called Benjamin Netanyahu a “Chicken—-?”

Posted by V the K at 9:24 am - October 30, 2014.
Filed under: Democratic Scandals

No one in the Obama Administration has ever used a scatological pejorative to describe Hamas Leadership, ISIS Terrorists, the corrupt and brutal Government of Venezuela, or even the savages of Boko Haram. But the Prime Minister of Israel, on the other hand, was called a “Chicken[stuff]” by a “Senior Administration Official.”

Purely speculating here, but what are the odds that the reason the Administration and the State Department refuse to investigate who the ‘Senior Administration Official’ who made the Chicken[stuff] remark is because: 1. They know exactly who made the remark. 2. It’s Secretary of State John Kerry?

It’s not as though Mr. Kerry lacks a reputation for arrogance and referring to people using pejoratives.  And when you read the remarks in context, it sure sounds like Stuff John Kerry Says.

A senior Obama administration official has described Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “chickenshit,” expressing the US president’s frustration with the Israeli leader.

“The thing about Bibi [Netanyahu] is, he’s a chickenshit,” the unnamed official told the Atlantic when asked about the foreign leader who seems to frustrate the White House the most.

The official added that the good thing about Netanyahu is that “he’s scared to launch wars,” and the bad thing about him is that “he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians.”

“The only thing he’s interested in is protecting himself from political defeat… He’s got no guts,” the official said

Never mind the irony of an official calling someone a ‘chicken[stuff]‘ and then insisting on anonymity.

Why Didn’t Mitt Romney Think of this?

As you may recall, the Democrat/Media machine spent much of 2012 hounding Mitt Romney for his tax returns. Senate Majority Leader Democrat Harry Reid even claimed he had inside info that Mitt Romney never paid any taxes. When Romney did finally release his tax returns, they showed nothing improper, only that he gave a lot more to charity than most people do; which the Democrats also said was a scandal.

When a journalist asked Democrat Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper for his tax returns, the governor threatened to throw him in jail.

“You’re really going to call police,” I said as he dialed 911. “OK. I’ll record this and I’ll leave.”

How are you liking the New Authoritarianism?

The Political Scandal That Should Shake-Up #VASen But Probably Won’t

As expected, Democrat Terry McAuliffe has really sleazed up Virginia politics. In order to stop a Democrat legislator from resigning and giving the Republicans a majority in the Virginia State Senate — which would be a speed bump on the Democrats’ plans to implement Obamacare, raise taxes, and enact new gun control and anti-coal policies — the McAuliffe regime apparently offered to give the legislator’s daughter a job, perhaps even an appointment to the Federal bench. Now, it has come to light that Virginia Democrat Senator Mark Warner — who was easily winning his re-election campaign against anodyne establishment Republican Ed Gillespie — was also involved in attempts to bribe the legislator to stay.

The son of a former Virginia state senator has told federal investigators that U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner discussed the possibility of several jobs, including a federal judgeship, for the senator’s daughter in an effort to dissuade him from quitting the evenly divided state Senate.

On June 6, three days before the state senator’s resignation became official, Warner called Puckett’s son, Joseph, and discussed an appointment to the federal bench as well as a potential corporate position for Martha Puckett Ketron, according to Joseph Puckett’s attorney, Charles E. “Chuck” James Jr. of Williams Mullen.

In the past, Democrats have shown a high tolerance for political sleaze within their own ranks, so this probably won’t tarnish Mark Warner’s prospects too much. It does point out, however, that for all the left’s keening about “white privilege” and “male privilege” the real privilege in our culture comes from being politically connected. Ordinary people do not have the access to easy, well-paid jobs that the friends and relations of the political class do.

Update From the Futile Search For Liberal Left Consistency

The Progressive Left defense of Roman Polanski is, “Hey, the girl he rape raped is a grown woman now, and she’s okay with it. So, who are we to judge?

The Progressive Left defense of gay Democrat lecher Gerry Studds is, “Hey, the boy he molested is a grown man now, and he’s okay with what happened. So, who are we to judge?

The Progressive Left defense of Kevin Jennings is, “Hey, the boy he instructed on the finer points of cruising bus station toilets is a grown man now, and he’s okay with it. So, who are we to judge?

So, why is it different when grown woman Janay Rice says she’s okay with Ray Rice knocking her around once in a while?

“But it’s different because it was an act of violence,” simpers the progressive left. “So, rape isn’t an act of violence?” “Only if it’s rape-rape.” “So getting someone drunk and drugged and then having sex with them like Polanski and Studds did isn’t rape?” “Sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t; if it’s a fellow progressive whose down with the struggle, it isn’t.” “As a woman, doesn’t Janay Rice have a right to make her own decisions without being judged.” “Not when she’s wrong.” “When is she wrong?” “When we say so.”

I have no conflict. I think Roman Polanski, Gerry Studds, Kevin Jennings, and Ray Rice are all scumbags.  Bill Clinton, Ted Kennedy, Mark Foley, Bob Filner, Anthony Weiner, John Edwards, Eric Massa, Keith Farnham, and  Charles Rust-Tierney are all scumbags, too.

And if Janay Rice were to ask me what she should do, I would tell her, “Get yourself away from that man. He’s like MSNBC… Bad News.”

This is not a defense of Ray or Janay Rice, this is just a question: Why the inconsistency?

And does MFM saturation of this story have anything to do with riling up the feminist vote before a midterm election?

I’m just asking.

Okay, Bob McDonnell and his wife have been convicted for accepting gifts from  It’s illegal for an elected public official to accept gifts from sleazy businessmen, even when the sleazy businessman gets nothing in return. Got it. It’s illegal, it should not be tolerated.

So… why was it OK for an Illinois State Senator named Barack Hussein Obama to accept gifts from a sleazy businessman named Tony Rezko?

And… why was it OK for the wife of Illinois Senator Barack Hussein Obama to accept a $300,000 a year no-show job at a hospital that subsequently received millions of dollars in taxpayer earmarks courtesy of Senator Barack Hussein Obama?

Is it okay because… Democrats are just exempt from rules that Republicans are subject to?  Is that because Democrats essentially control the media and legal apparatus of the country and have fully weaponized them for use against political opponents?

Ohio Gubernatorial Candidate Lucky He’s Not a Republican

Filed under: Democratic Scandals

Because if Ed Fitzgerald were a Republican instead of a Democrat, being caught in a parking lot at 4:30 AM with a woman who was not his wife and driving without a license might be kind of scandalous.

Officers responding to a call of a suspicious car found the Cuyahoga County executive – now a Democratic candidate for governor – with a woman who was not his wife at 4:30 a.m. parked at an industrial complex.

From there, the story really gets strange. It’s come to light that Fitzgerald didn’t even have a license for the 5 years prior to that incident.

But, hey, considering the previous Democrat Governor of Ohio  had as a member of his staff a sexual predator with a conviction for exposing himself to minors and the press didn’t go all Mark Foley on him, it’s a safe bet this little imbroglio won’t tarnish Fitzgerald’s image at all either.

 

Letting Democrats Get Away With Corruption, Failure, and Disastrous Policy Is Bad For America

Over at Draw and Strike, Brain Cates… in a series of Twits … explains how so much of what ails the country is a direct consequence of the MFM having the Democrats’ collective back, never holding them to account, and making sure that no scandal — Ted Kennedy drowning a woman, Gerry Studds diddling an underage House Page, Jon Corzine’s squandering of billions of dollars of investor’s money, Liz Warren’s lies about her “Native American” heritage, and any of Obama’s plethora of failures and corruptions — ever sticks to them. Rather than reproduce them, here’s a summary.

  • What’s the point in remembering Chappaquiddick, an event from 45 years ago, especially since Ted Kennedy is dead. Because the Democrats & their DNC-Media Complex allies buried most of the truth, that’s why.
  • Before you can understand why the country is where it is now, you need to look back & see how it got here.
  • And 1 of the big reasons the United States is in the bad place it is now is because Democrats never have to pay for their crimes.
  • Democrats do stupid policy, get people killed, waste billions of our tax dollars, & skate on it because they aren’t held accountable.
  • When Republicans screw up, they get called on it; which is why Government is more accountable when Republicans are in charge
  • Obama stumbles from failure to failure, from scandal to scandal, and the MFM covers for him every bumbling step of the way.
  • And now where are we? The world is breaking down into chaos & the leader of the free world is actually enabling the chaos by doing nothing.

Democrats Battle Valiantly Against Reason and Common Sense

Fact:  The IRS Targeted 104 Conservative and Tea Party groups to deny them tax exempt status during the 2012 election cycle. 

Fact: Not a single progressive group (of the 7 audited) was denied tax exempt status in this period.

Fact: Lois Lerner’s computer hard drive “crashed” within ten days of Congress beginning an inquiry into the IRS targeting of Conservative groups. According to the IRS, this resulted in the loss of all of her emails to outside agencies… including the White House.

Fact:  Six other people with close ties to the IRS targeting of Conservative groups also had all of their emails destroyed.

Fact: The IRS abruptly canceled its contract with a company that backed up its emails externally after Congress initiated an inquiry.

Now, a reasonable person looking at the above set of facts might say that the pattern is consistent with an agency that did something wrong and then undertook to destroy the evidence of wrongdoing.

But according to the Democrats, to draw such a conclusion from that set of facts is akin to believing that the Earth is Secretly Run by Alien Lizard People.

You begin to wonder how any intelligent person could still be a Democrat and not be in it for anything other than the graft.

Tech Support Tips from the IRS

Little known IT fact: If your hard drive crashes, every email you ever wrote on that computer will be lost forever.

That is the explanation for how the IRS lost all of Lois Lerner’s emails during the exact period the IRS, under her direction, was targeting Tea Party and other conservative groups for IRS harassment.

And the Washington Post finds this explanation totes credible.

A white Republican president who harassed progressive groups through the IRS then covered it up by destroying evidence would have been impeached by now.

Also, is it just me, but doesn’t Lerner’s email in the article come across as stilted, and maybe a wee bit blase for someone who’s just been told none of the data on her hard drive is recoverable?

Update: Wow, what are the odds. Six other Obama drones involved in the targeting of conservative groups ALSO lost all of their emails in computer crashes.

What are the odds?

House Committee on Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp revealed today that he has been informed by the IRS that Lois Lerner’s emails between Jan. 2009 and April 2011 have been lost “due to a supposed computer crash.” The IRS says the crash destroyed all of Lerner’s emails to outside agencies such as, for instance, the White House.

Things That Are Only Scandals When Republicans Are President

Posted by V the K at 1:11 pm - June 9, 2014.
Filed under: Afghanistan,Democratic Scandals

President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s State Department provided the Qataris with a shipment of highly advanced Stinger Ground-to-Air Missiles. The Qataris were supposed to pass them to anti-Khadafy rebels in Libya. Instead, they ended up with the Taliban, where one was used to shoot down an American helicopter.

But, considering no one got upset over the hundreds of dead Mexicans and one dead American from arms supplied to Mexican Drug cartels by Obama’s Justice Department, this would be obviously just another phony scandal from people who hate the president because he’s a black man.

President Obama probably had no idea those missiles ended up with the Taliban until he saw it in “media reports.”

But George W. Bush was personally responsible for every bad thing that happened in the world from 2001 – on.

Obama administration blows a CIA station chief’s cover

Recall how in 2003, a massive scandal erupted when Richard Armitage, a State Department official under then-Secretary Colin Powell, happened to leak Valerie Plame’s name to a journalist. Plame was a CIA Stateside employee (arguably NOT under cover). Armitage was basically gossiping, and he never underwent any prosecution because it was no big deal. Except, of course, the Left/media had a field day pushing the scandal complete with the darkest possible allegations against President Bush, lionization of Plame and her partisan-liar of a husband, a federal prosecutor and a ‘gotcha’ conviction of Scooter Libby (a Bush staffer who was not the key leaker; Armitage was).

Recently, the White House leaked the name of a top CIA officer in Kabul, Afghanistan. His name was really a secret. He does serve abroad (and in a danger zone), and he is endangered by the leak. As the Washington Post puts it:

The Post is withholding the name of the CIA officer at the request of Obama administration officials who warned that the officer and his family could be at risk if the name were published…

The CIA officer was one of 15 senior U.S. officials identified as taking part in a military briefing for Obama…Their names were included on a list…circulated by e-mail to reporters…

It is unclear whether the disclosure will force the CIA to pull the officer out of Afghanistan…The identities of at least three CIA station chiefs in Pakistan have been exposed in recent years. In one case, a CIA officer became a target of death threats after his cover was blown, forcing the agency to rush him out of the country.

Should we expect any big scandal, Left/media outrage, federal prosecutors or trumped-up convictions over this?

VA Reforms Blocked by Harry Reid’s Senate

Posted by V the K at 8:54 pm - May 24, 2014.
Filed under: Democratic Scandals

A GOP House member says that the House of Representatives has passed “at least 12″ Veterans Administration reform bills, only to have Koch-obsessed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid block them from being voted on.

REP JACKIE WALORSKI (R-IN): In the past 18 months, since I’ve been a member of Congress, we’ve passed, on the House floor, at least 12 reform VA bills. Mandating the VA to fix different things, mandating the VA to report different things, mandating them to fix their website, bipartisan bills that went to the Senate, and they are DOA on the Senate side

Unknown whether that list includes a bill passed last week that would allow those responsible for the most recent abuses and corruption to be fired; Senate Democrats have blocked action on that bill, too. (I guess they were too busy with more important things like demanding the NFL change the name of the Washington Redskins football club.)

Gee, I wonder if President Obama is #MadderThanHell that his senate Democrats are obstructing VA reforms. (Oh, no wait, he went and played round of golf number 173 this weekend.)

Also, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist who feels right at home the Democrat Caucus, says the VA scandal is no big deal. “People die every day.”

But one Democrat, at least, is demanding accountability: Nancy Pelosi says George W. Bush is responsible for the VA corruption and abuses that took place under Barack H. Obama, and should be held accountable.

The VA Is Single Payer Health Care – Epitomized

Before it was known that VA Bureaucrats were denying care to Veterans, creating phony paperwork to hide their shame, and punishing anyone who threatened to reveal the scheme… all the while rewarding themselves with bonuses and luxurious new officesleft wing economists were praising the VA as the Epitome of what could be achieved with single-payer health care.

And they were right. The VA is the epitome of single payer… the corruption, incompetence, and shortcomings aren’t bugs, they are inherent features in any Government bureaucracy.

If left-wingers were reasonable, thoughtful people, they might consider that the VA scandal demonstrates all of the reasons conservatives oppose Government-run health care; contrary to the President’s assertion that Republicans just want people to not have health care.

But if you can imagine the left-wing brain trust as represented by Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, Alan Grayson, Chris Matthews, and Melissa Harris Perry having a reasonable thought… you have more imagination than I do, friend.

So, How Long Will This Be a Scandal and How Long Will the Administration Pretend to Be Angry About it?

Question: How long will it take before the Democrats declare the VA Scandal a “Phony Scandal?” My bet is, we don’t get to the weekend.

And isn’t strange that when a Private on the other side of the world put a dog-leash on an Iraqi prisoner, George W. Bush was said to be personally responsible.  But Obama bears absolutely no responsibility for agencies under his direct executive command (the IRS, the EPA, the VA, the ATF)?

Ace’s take on the testimony of VA Secretary Shinseki was interesting:

“I take full responsibility” stopped meaning “I take full responsibility” around 15 years ago. Now it only means “I’m willing to say the words I take full responsibility.

Watch the video to see what “mad as hell” sounds like. What “mad as hell” now sounds like, in 2014, is a bloodless bureaucratic robot reciting scripted talking points.

A drone, in other words?
