Time to Break Out the RICO Statute and Break Up the Democrats

Takin’ out the trash

Ed has already reported on the perp walks of these rascals, so let me make a larger point: This is not aberrational. It is and always has been the norm for the criminal organization that calls itself the “Democratic Party.” There’s a place for a liberal party in a democracy, but this one isn’t it. It’s a crime family that uses electoral office to enrich itself and punish its enemies. Politics is just the means to the end, which is power. And until the Establishment Republicans, who in their tacit acquiescence are equally complicit in the corruption that goes by the name of “business as usual,” finally decide they’ve had enough — we’re going to keep seeing stories like these.

When and if the GOP ever gets its act together and actually wins another national election, there are handy laws on the books that could enable them to deal with the Democrats: the RICO statute. That would be the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, whose expressed purposed, according to the feds, is ”the elimination of the infiltration of organized crime and racketeering into legitimate organizations operating in interstate commerce.” That, of course, would mean a new attorney general:

Section 1961(10) of Title 18 provides that the Attorney General may designate any department or agency to conduct investigations authorized by the RICO statute and such department or agency may use the investigative provisions of the statute or the investigative power of such department or agency otherwise conferred by law. Absent a specific designation by the Attorney General, jurisdiction to conduct investigations for violations of 18 U.S.C. § 1962 lies with the agency having jurisdiction over the violations constituting the pattern of racketeering activity listed in 18 U.S.C. § 1961.

The Obama administration’s penchant for politicizing every federal agency, from the EPA to the IRS to Justice, could very well come back to haunt it. And the Democrat apparatchiks like Harry Reid and Maerose Prizzi who enabled and abetted it certainly would deserve it.

Would a RICO prosecution of, say, the DNC, be unwarranted? On the next page, we’ll take a look at the relevant issues according to federal guidelines.

Yet you fail to point out a single fantasy, refute a single fantasy, or offer any supporting evidence for your claim.

Funny how often statist totalitarian thugs comfort themselves with logical fallacy.

If the Repooplican Potty can blunder into winning the Preresidency and the two Houses of Con-regress, the first order of business is to repeal the law allowing for public sector unions. Flat out outlaw at the Federal level. Then add a section that limits or reduces Federal aid to states that still allow public sector unions. Why? Because these states willfully impoverish themselves, making them more needy, like an individual would do by using drugs, eating only junk food, and refusing to bathe, while searching for or trying to maintain a job.

After that, fire, furrow, reduce the number of Feral employees, get rid of the trash, deadwood, and subversive traitors. A few years ago, at the State Dept., several employees were caught watching porn FOR HOURS in the day. Result? No one got fired. Not one. Would this have happened in private industry? Should standards be lower in Gummint? A big factor in the inaction for this breach of their own rules, was the union representing these embedded weeds.

Maybe RICO will turn out to be helpful in battling the Muhammadan cult here in America.

I have been saying this for 20 years. The only construct in which the democrat party makes any sense to a normal person is to think of them in terms of a crime cartel.

The Soviet Union is the obvious criminal model this administration adheres to. Just go to the CSPAN archives and watch the DNC committee counting the delegate votes in 2008.

As Stalin said: "It is not who cast the votes, it is who counts the votes."

In one respect this reminds me of the tax protestor movement of the 80's where they attempted to stake a claim that amounted to making a financial war on the U.S. government before an employee of said government.
Bless them they were right on the merits, had their hearts in the right place but obviously had voided their brains along with their last meals.
This suggestion goes in the same file.

Here is what I think is going on: A similar roundup of Republican politicians will occur this fall, just prior to the election. The Republicans won't be able to scream unfairness and the public will have long ago forgotten about the Dem arrests.

And just imagine if the FBI picked on the GOP and the Dems at the same time. All you would hear is how Obama is targeting conservatives. Just like the IRS who targeted everyone but the right-wing propaganda ministry at Fox and Fools invented something entirely different

Mr. Walsh, the Radical Progressive/Communist/Marxist machine that came marching into the White House with Barry Soetoro (aka Barack Hussein Obama, Harrison J. Bounel, Barry Obama, Barack Obama Soebarkah, etc) is about to be busted up and sent packing. Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his amazing investigators under the leadership of Lt. Mike Zullo are about to end this nightmare. We will be in a Constitutional crisis for awhile but we will survive as we watch the Radical Progressives crash and burn. The shame in all of this is that Arpaio was doing the work our FBI, CIA, Homeland Security and the Secret Service should have done back in 2007-08. Both the Conservative and Liberal media intentionally ignored the scandal. The United States Congress intentionally ignored the scandal hoping it would all just go away. It hasn't and it is about to blow up!

"So the news yesterday that the FBI has been bagging crooked Democrats all across this great land of ours comes as exactly zero surprise to me. "
What surprised me about it was the the FBI actually agressively went after dem crooks without being stopped by Holder. Apparently there are still some honest career people left at the FBI who cannot be intimidated by Obama/Holder.

All of our law enforcement agencies have ignored the scandal of the century. They are all guilty of crimes themselves for ignoring the scandal. Many, many folks at these agencies should be fired for their incompetence. Obama is going down despite their incompetence.

obama learned the political game from the Chicago people, who learned it from the gangsters. So, why is it such a stretch to think that he won't do what he's learned to do. The good thing about the gangsters is this: they're Capitalists. obama is a communist/muslim, something far removed from the people he cut his teeth on in the political game of "do what I say and no one will get hurt". obama has run his administration like the leader of an organized crime gang with the exception that he wants to and will, hurt anybody who gets in his way. he is the greatest fraud ever foisted on the people of this United States of America.

It's worth remembering that Saul Alinsky grew up with the Capone Mob in Chicago. No difference in tactics or morals.

Walsh tells it like it really is and he is the first to do it! It has never been adequate to accuse of the democrats of unusual tactics or possible Constitutional errors, because these accusations have not really touched upon the actual criminality of what they have been doing over the last 30 years. Todays democrat party is worse and creates more havoc and disaster than any mafia organization ever has in this country! They are truly a Criminal Political Organization in the worst sense of the words!

How come Walsh and many Conservative media elites ignored the biggest scandal of the century? Obama is a fraud and they all know it and they intentionally ignore the scandal. Diana West is the only Conservative journalist who I know covered the scandal and no others picked up on it. Even Breitbart refused to discuss the fraud and criminal activity. They were hand delivered the evidence and chose to intentionally ignore it. Conservatives are their own worse enemy.

If someone provides conclusive evidence, I and the rest of the conservative punditocracy wll be happy to address the issue. The problem is that there have been several "Kenyan birth certificates," obviously fake and easily debunked, that some on the right have been only too happy to post. Corsi's book, "Where's the Birth Certificate," proved exactly nothing and was quickly rendered moot when the Hawaiian birth certificate was made public. Obviously, questions have been raised about that document, but more than questions need to be presented before anyone is going to take this line of inquiry seriously. Finally, the "natural-born citizen" phrase is so nebulous, and the rules concerning inherited parental citizenship have changed so often, that it's not entirely clear that Obama would not be legitimate even were he born in Kenya.

Correct on the forged docs. It is not just that they were forged, it was that they were really bad forgeries. Goes to competence at that point. When you look at the process to get a copy of your birth certificate, it is simple and quick, and does not take 2 years.

Also, at the time of BHO's birth narrative, his mother was a minor and had no standing in court. She could not confer diddly squat to anyone, much less citizenship. Technically, BHO is a British subject.

Is that Joe Pesci, second from left in the photo? I swear that's Joe Pesci...

But seriously folks, looks like the posters have struck a nerve with the obamabots coming out of the woodwork to sputter Brian (Ted Knight's)Williams' talking points.

"...It's that they know so much that isn't so."

Willful, blind ignorance coupled with strict adherence to the dogma that corporations are evil and must be punished will get you a life of angry bitterness with no real hobbies to speak of save going to Code Stink rallies and watching re-runs of M*A*S*H, one of the first propaganda machines to spout their hatred of republicans while masking it as humor.

While I come here a lot to check the political pulse of the nation and to participate in expressing my frustration over the fascistic takeover of our constitutional republic, I have to remember there are people in this nation who are angry that they were ever born and never figured out how to compete, succeed or "self-acutalize" (Their buzzword, not mine) in order to find contentment and satisfaction in being average, ordinary and commonplace.

Their wasted youth, endowed with trophies for just showing up have instilled them with a sense of entitlement and misconception that they are wise and gifted. So when they hit the marketplace of jobs and found out that their black, transgender studies degree only qualified to get them one at Chick-fil-A, they understandably became angry.

Yet, another oddity of leftwing parrot-heads is that they can never reconcile their anger at themselves with blaming someone else for their problems. It's always someone else's fault. After all, they're good enough, their smart enough and --- doggone it, people like them.

So they're every bit as qualified as someone with a double-E degree or a post-grad with his credentials in industrial design to run things and "be somebody".

And the biggest failure of all? They cannot see how they have been played for saps; succumbing to the socialist machine that sucked them in, got them angry, allowed them to think they were competitive and smart by producing a false environment of "success" where mediocrity rules the day and masquerades as "a cut above".

Yet they never once find themselves in a situation whereby they ask a journalist to explain something even mildly complex, or even how toast is made. This is because they have been allowed to avoid science, math, strictly structured reading/writing classes and instead have attended schools where you "do as you feel". Never has that been a successful path to learning. It's just a reinforcement of crap. And it ladles on additional crap to bury the original crap they believe in.

So, yes, we are surrounded by a**-*oles. This was always the case but nowadays, these same people are absolutely convinced they are right. Not so long ago, they would have admitted that they are nothing special and are just trying to make a living.
