Chuck, Billary and Rock ‘n’ Roll for Sale.

This morning’s USA Today broke new ground for a Gannet publication; a front page story about Democrat corruption.

It appears that New York Senator’s Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton earmarked some one million dollars of your income tax money for a museum on the site of Woodstock concert. The museum is owned by a private corporation. The corporation, in turn, is owned by a Republican named Alan Gerry. While I dig rock ‘n’ roll music, particularly the Woodstock album (own it in vinyl, CD and video), I’m not sure that giving tax money to help a billionaire build a museum to the show is the best use of tax dollars. Think of the help a million dollar grant could do for some small start up business somewhere or the amount of AIDs vaccines for sub Saharan Africa that could have been purchased with that money?

The USA Today article, a must read for Republicans, describes Gerry’s pattern of donations to prominent New York Democrats. For example, Gerry has contributed some $150,000 to the Schumer led Democrat Senatorial Campaign Fund in the last 21 months. Gerry and his wife have also maxed out personal contributions to the Evita ’08 Campaign, giving Billary some $9,200 this year alone.

Another Democrat, Cong. Maurice Hinchey (NY) has received $19,500 from Gerry and wife and responded with a $200,000 earmark back in 2003 for the Woodstock project.

Nothing in the Woodstock corruption story should come as a surprise to political observers. Schumer’s role as a bag man for Democrat corruption is already the stuff of legend. The Clintons, of course, have set standards of financial rapaciousness that is unrivaled by any historical antecedent, quite literally receiving bags of cash from the Chinese government.

What should be surprising is the arrogance. $29,200 was paid over to Schumer and Clinton within days of Gerry’s receipt of the $1 million earmark. Tell me again how that isn’t just plain bribery?

If the donations are legal, and they probably are, then does this incident not prove the dire need for the earmark reform that the President requested in his 2007 State of the Union address? However, since the Pelosi-Reid Post Office Congress has increased earmarks by some 800% over their Republican counterparts in 2006 does anyone think that Democrats like John “Abscam” Murtha will support earmark reform?

Evita is the Queen of Corruption. I hope she gets the nomination because I can't wait to shove all that Culture of Corruption KRAP right down their throats. They invented the politics of personal destruction, the culture of corruption and the fantasy of the vast right wing conspiracy to cover it all up.

I think bill and hill cackle all day to themselves about their personal private joke over their Soprano's commercial.

They truly do out mafia the mafia.

and speaking of hiLARRY, what is her brother Daryl and her other brother Daryl up to these days?

Are they lining up new customers to get pardons from hiLarry, like they did with Bill, "so what if all my friends are dead or in jail, doesn't everyone have friends in jail?" Clinton?

Maybe someone could check the donor rolls and find out how many of them have criminal relatives in jail that hiLarry can help.

i thought the d's were all so upset about upsetting our allies, i guess the d's were just kidding. said...

WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 — Worried about antagonizing Turkish leaders, House members from both parties have begun to withdraw their support from a resolution supported by the Democratic leadership that would condemn as genocide the mass killings of Armenians nearly a century ago.

Almost a dozen lawmakers had shifted against the measure over the last 24 hours, accelerating a sudden exodus that has cast deep doubt over the measure’s prospects.

Some representatives made clear that they were heeding warnings from the White House, which has called the measure dangerously provocative, and from the Turkish government, which has said House passage would prompt Turkey to reconsider its ties to the United States, including logistical support for the Iraq war.

Until today, the resolution appeared to be on a path to House passage, with strong support from the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi of California.

You got it right Uncle Teddy. The Billary generation of Dems still is obsessed with sex, drugs and rock and roll. That really is their entire legacy for this least of all generations.

yea but pelosi wants us to condemn turkey from 100 years ago and we have to investigate & subpeona said...

A paltry 11 percent gave Congress a positive grade, tying last month's record low.

"There is a real question among Americans now about how relevant this government is to them," pollster John Zogby said. "They tell us they want action on health care, education, the war and immigration, but they don't believe they are going to get it."

Democrat Barbara Mikulski demonstrated the point frequently made about democrats not doing their own research. She piled onto the bandwagon on Rush, but used the wrong story - he never said anything about the exploited Graeme child...then she said Rush called the phony soldiers - "microphone" soldiers.

Thanks Barb for proving once again that Democrats are not intellectually curious and simply spout the talking points memo from the DNC.

Excuse me....I didn't mean talking points from the DNC, I meant talking points from Media Matters founded by Shillary.

The free speech party is really getting scary. Algore is on the board of Google and is controlling political speech (see China story).

The Billary gang is eavesdropping on political enemies - AGAIN, but won't let us wiretap terrorists.

The D's should all be hanging their heads in shame at 41 of them actually tried to destroy a private citizen because they disagreed with his political free speech.

You guys really have to run on that. How are you going to explain that to your voters?

This is indeed an outrage, it's not quite on a par with killing thousands of America's best and brightest over phony weapons of mass destruction but it's close!

advertisers follow readership. 10 year lows has to do with 10 low in readership.gannet owns register said...

Oct. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Morgan Stanley, the second-biggest shareholder in New York Times Co., sold its entire 7.3 percent stake today, sending the stock to its lowest in more than 10 years.

Other newspaper stocks, including Gannett Co., owner of USA Today, and McClatchy Co., publisher of the Miami Herald, are also trading at 10-year lows because of the loss of advertising to new media such as the Internet.

is vanzer known for his clever repartee? I sure wasn't expecting that comeback. WHat's next? Nah nah nah boo boo?

Republicans don't use talking points. When you speak the truth about the facts, you don't need a memo to know what to say. We read facts, make conclusions from those facts and form opinions about those facts.

Your point was false in every regard. That is what drew my wrath. DNC talking points are lies. YOu just repeated one. D's get the well earned reputation of not doing their own research because you repeat so many factual lies fed to you by your handlers up the chain.

So, don't compare me to you. Ass hat??

It's "Mister" Vanzer to you, Ass Hat, said...

What's next, Ass hat? "If the liberals were around during WW II we'd have lost that too." In fact you would have actually dug that, a society with one ruler for life, one newspaper, one news channel, one party, no homosexuals, no blacks, no Jews, no masturbation, no abortion, one universal uniform, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

And another thing ass hat, it was Ford (a republican) who cut and ran in Viet Nam. Were you in Viet Nam ass hat? Or did a painful pimple on your ass prevent you from serving? Bet you served right along side Cheney, O'Reilly, Rush, and George W. "Jesus" Bush himself. You are a patriot, ass hat! Come on over some time and look at my Bronze Star ass hat.
