John Edwards Caught With Mistress And Love Child!

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 22, 2008

The married ex-senator from North Carolina – whose wife Elizabeth continues to battle cancer — met with his mistress, blonde divorcée Rielle Hunter, at the Beverly Hilton on Monday night, July 21 – and the NATIONAL ENQUIRER was there! He didn’t leave until early the next morning.

Rielle had driven to Los Angeles from Santa Barbara with a male friend for the rendezvous with Edwards. The former senator attended a press event Monday afternoon with L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on the topic of how to combat homelessness.

The bad news…this comes from the National Enquirer.
Hat Tip: The Drudge Report

The Good News…it will likely remove him from Barack Obama’s short list of Vice Presidential candidates.

Former State Senator Has Questions Regarding Ethics Bill

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 11, 2008

A letter regarding the North Carolina General Assembly’s ability to police itself in ethics investigations has been posted on WNC Citizens Blog.

The letter writer brings up some good points, especially about past unethical behavior, and I provided the links in the letter to provide evidence of the letter writer’s varacity.

The key system has been used by the Democratic Party for over thirty years, and it is still in place.

NC General Assembly Moves To Block State Auditor

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 8, 2008

The NC General Assembly, tired of having a Republican who might expose the unethical activities of legislators, is pushing forward legislation that will limit the state auditor’s investigative authority. I blogged about it on WNC Citizens Blog.

BREAKING: Obama Friend Tony Rezko Guilty On All 16 Counts

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 4, 2008

Convicted political fixer Antoin “Tony” Rezko, found guilty today on 16 counts of corruption “related to a kickback scheme for companies that do business with the state” of Illinois, has surrendered to authorities.

Rezko, who is scheduled for sentencing in September, surprised even his attorney by opting to begin serving his time immediately.

“I didn’t choose that. Mr. Rezko chose if he was convicted to immediately start serving,” said Joe Duffy, Rezko Defense Attorney. “That was just the desire he expressed to us, and it was his decision.”

DNC Rules & Bylaws Committee "The Half a Person Compromise"

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 2, 2008

That is even worse than the Three-Fifths Compromise designed to stave off a Civil War.

The DNC RBC has decided that voters in Florida and Michigan are only half a person when it comes to counting their votes.

Barack Obama and ACORN

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 30, 2008

What if Barack Obama’s most important radical connection has been hiding in plain sight all along? Obama has had an intimate and long-term association with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (Acorn), the largest radical group in America. If I told you Obama had close ties with MoveOn.org or Code Pink, you’d know what I was talking about. Acorn is at least as radical as these better-known groups, arguably more so. Yet because Acorn works locally, in carefully selected urban areas, its national profile is lower. Acorn likes it that way. And so, I’d wager, does Barack Obama.

This is a story we’ve largely missed. While Obama’s Acorn connection has not gone entirely unreported, its depth, extent, and significance have been poorly understood. Typically, media background pieces note that, on behalf of Acorn, Obama and a team of Chicago attorneys won a 1995 suit forcing the state of Illinois to implement the federal “motor-voter” bill. In fact, Obama’s Acorn connection is far more extensive. In the few stories where Obama’s role as an Acorn “leadership trainer” is noted, or his seats on the boards of foundations that may have supported Acorn are discussed, there is little follow-up. Even these more extensive reports miss many aspects of Obama’s ties to Acorn.

An Anti-Capitalism Agenda
To understand the nature and extent of Acorn’s radicalism, an excellent place to begin is Sol Stern’s 2003 City Journal article, “ACORN’s Nutty Regime for Cities.” (For a shorter but helpful piece, try Steven Malanga’s “Acorn Squash.”)

Commentary

The group ACORN is really a collection of nuts. They have been working in select urban areas to subvert our Republic, and have registered hundreds of thousands to vote, many of them fraudulently. Several of their members have been arrested for such activity.

KMOX–Eight ACORN Workers arrested for Election Fraud

Fraud in ACORN-led voter registration drives isn’t just limited to Missouri. “Idealistic” ACORN workers have been convicted of election-related offenses in Wisconsin and Colorado. What’s more, investigations have occurred in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. In Minnesota, authorities found hundreds of voter registration cards in the trunk of a car owned by a former ACORN member suspected of registering voters twice so he could double his fees. A few disillusioned ACORN organizers admit that honesty was never a high priority in the organization. Loretta Barton, a former organizer in Dayton, Ohio, admits, “All ACORN wanted from registration drives was results.” Apparently, the group wasn’t too concerned about how those results came about. In 2004, for example, one Ohio ACORN worker was given crack cocaine in exchange for fraudulent registrations, which included underage, deceased or fictitious persons with names such as Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and Jive Turkey. Nate Toler, an ACORN organizer, told the Wall Street Journal’s John Fund: “There’s no quality control on purpose, no checks and balances. The internal motto is, ‘We don’t care if it’s a lie, just so long as it stirs up the conversation.’” He added, “I may have my head chopped off for telling the truth.” Now that’s not nice.

Be sure and read the entire article by Stanley Kurtz in the National Review. The body-count of illegal and unethical behavior surrounding Obama is breath-taking. This is also another reason that the American people cannot vote this man in as President of these United States.

The Money Motive Behind Scott McClellan Book

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 30, 2008

A little background for those who have been under a rock lately:

Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan has written a book in which he claims his boss (President George W Bush) lied to sell America on the Invasion of Iraq.

There has been much coverage of the book, his claims, and he is the current Golden Boy of the anti-Bush Media. They have neglected to probe a little deeper into motives and incentives for publishing the book.

Listen to this bit of audio from The Warroom with Quinn & Rose from just before the 8.30 am break this morning:

Quinn & Rose 05-30-2008

Scott McClellan’s Mother is Carol Strayhorn, who ran for Governor of Texas as an Independent.

Nesbitt Ethics Problems

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 28, 2008

Buncombe Senator Martin Nesbitt is in the news again, and I have posted an article about it on WNC Citizens Blog. I meant to do it yesterday morning, but was interrupted when a neighbor’s goats went on walkabout.

More Concerns About Obama’s Past, And Terrorist Supporters

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 15, 2008

“And in six months, they got about a half-billion dollars’ worth of business simply on their excellence,” Obama said.

What he did not say in his speech was that the owner of one of the investment firms, John Rogers of Ariel Capital, is a principal campaign fundraiser. Nor did he reveal that employees of the firms he helped have since contributed to or helped to raise more than $765,000 for his campaigns, according to campaign documents. Nor did he mention that two of the firms have allowed him to use their private jets. Nor did he mention that two of the firms have since been dismissed by the state pension fund for “underperformance.”

If you want to keep up on the whole Rezko trial, visit Rezko-rama. Many thanks to Hugh Hewitt for the idea, and NZ Bear for the technology setting that website up…goodness knows the Obama Sycophants and Useful Idiots in the Legacy Media and local radio won’t dare question the Obamessiah.

Here is a bit of audio I’ve been meaning to post, but never got around to it. I found it at Powerline today…it is audio of an interview where Hamas endorsed Barack Obama.

As if the Palestinian Phone Bank wasn’t bad enough, I must remind you of his association with Bill Ayers, an unrepentant terrorist.

American Thinker has a new article tackling part of this as well, and is is worth a read, and thanks to Charles G. for pointing it out to me.

This two-part Powerline on the friends of Obama should be required reading:

Part 1

Part 2

It is complete with audio to drive the point home.
