Come back Eliot Ness, your country needs you

Another day, another chronicle of Democratic Party malfeasance. Enjoy:

In Congress, Rep. Darrell Issa of California has just leveled an explosive charge against his Democrat counterpart on the House Oversight and Government Reform committee — to wit, that the gentleman from Maryland colluded with the IRS to harass a conservative organization fighting for honest elections:

Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, non-profit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud.The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official whom Issa’s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her involvement in targeting conservative groups.

“The IRS and the Oversight Minority made numerous requests for virtually identical information from True the Vote, raising concerns that the IRS improperly shared protected taxpayer information with Rep. Cummings’ staff,” a statement from the Oversight panel reads.According to Issa, Cummings and his staff sought “copies of all training materials used for volunteers, affiliates, or other entities,” from True the Vote.

Naturally, the honorable gentlemen denies the charges:

Cummings said the letter from Issa and others Republicans is “a desperate attempt to shift the focus on tomorrow’s contempt vote away from the serious Constitutional deficiencies in these proceedings.”

Did somebody say “contempt vote”? (UPDATE: it just happened.) What kind of nefarious activity might occasion such a thing?

To paraphrase the great Mark Twain.

I never can think of the mafia without losing my temper. To my mind the mafia was nothing but a low down, dirty, premature democrat party.

"No Justice, No Peace". Was never a demand from the left. It was a promise that they will never deliver justice and never allow anyone any peace.

Which is why I refer to them as the Fascist-Democrat party from now on.

I'm sure Holder deeply respects Gohmert for not being a coward when it comes to race in America.

Oh yeah! This should be pounding national a national call, for barrages of RICOs by attorneys, the call by bloggers, in their own way, as for example this one by yours truly, and by themselves and in packs if they are attorneys: http://theological-geography.net/?p=5799

We are being ruled by a criminal gang.

"As I wrote in this space recently, it’s time to break out the RICO statute and break up the Democrats, for their own good and that of the nation."

But you know that will never work with demomafia still in charge.

If each man and woman does what they must
The criminal tyrants will be turned into dust
Our Lady of Justice must possess them in her breathtaking, hair raising bed
To tingle each spine as she captures each heart and each head!

They must gaze up at our Lady of Justice
With her shimmering, glimmering blade
Then she will kiss these criminal tyrants
As she sings them a last serenade

I'm surprised that the 'Reverend' Sharpton has not yet been fitted with concrete shoes.

A few years ago I would have dismissed the statement that the D party is the political equivalent of the Cosa Nostra as hyperbole. No longer. Behold the hideous face of Chicago gangster politics scaled up to the federal level.

It's not even about 0bama, contemptible pathetic narcissistic joker that he is. He's just the mouthpiece.

What we are watching is what happens when the principles of affirmative action are applied to "the hideous face of Chicago gangster politics scaled up to the federal level."

"The honorable gentlemen denies the charges." In the quote that follows that statement, I don't see a denial.

Dems were shocked that the natural order of things didn’t return in ’88 and that marks the beginning of their plunge into outright criminality; no longer were they just sneak-cheats, from that point on they would rub it in. Clinton certainly didn’t need help in going in that direction.

Fast forward to the present and just one of their many acts of criminal behavior takes the form of allowing Comrade O to use the USA as his ideological playpen, to run the economy down and trash the nation’s foreign policy into so many pieces that not even an army of Iranian fanatics could put it back together again.

Agreed, the dem party needs to be destroyed. But first find out why these people have the arrogant confidence of mafia dons knowing that the jury is rigged and the hearings are fixed. Start here and you will bring these bastards down for good.
