Saturday Open Thread [2.1.14]

Filed in Open Thread by on February 1, 2014

Dinesh D’Souza been charged with pretty serious campaign finance fraud (straw donations where he funneled money to a Senate candidate — the kind of thing Tigani was convicted of here), and he plays the Conservative Victim Card. Rather than take personal responsibility for his attempt to break the law, he wants the (conservative — because nobody else got time for that) world to know that Obama is targeting D’Sousa because of a movie that no one cared about.

The NJ editorial this AM takes on the case of the subpoena to Peaceful Rioters (from Facebook). Frankly, I wished they would have called for all of the potential parties involved in this thing to cease and desist (I mean, who doesn’t see Setting’s claim of investigation the hateful material delivered to that Hokessin family as anything but a useful cover?). There are far too many Delaware Way hands who have their fingers in the pie here and I really hope that a judge gets to ask point blank exactly why Setting thinks there is a connection to Peaceful Rioters. Seriously, there are plenty of things for the AG to worry about — not the least of which is the illegal trafficking of guns to Delaware; an unfinished implementation of the Crime-Free Rental Housing Program or even the serious conflicts of interest present in Connections employees being on Wilmington City Council. Right?

Interesting compilation of the headlines around Chris Christie’s (hopefully) disappearing political career:

For all of the Pete Seeger fans out there, PBS has posted for streaming his 2008 American Master’s segment — The Power of Song.

    “two Frisbees with Nazi references that again ripped both men were left outside the house.”

    Frisbees? That doesn’t carry quite the same commitment as a brick. But you have to hand it to our haters for at least trying new media. That’s kind of like WWII Japan tying propaganda notes to balloons and letting the wind carry them to the West Coast. Delaware cannot rest untiil the owners of those Frisbees are hunted down like the Boston Marathon bombers.

    MITT 2016!

    “Mitt Romney, Round Three? A poll released this week in a key presidential primary state found that the 2012 Republican nominee is still the preferred 2016 choice among a crucial cohort of voters.

    The Purple Strategies poll placed Romney as the 2016 front-runner for the Republican nomination in New Hampshire with 25 percent of the vote. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) followed at 18 percent, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie ranked third at 17 percent.”

    You judge Dinesh D’Souza but love the admitted Communist Pete Seeger?

    What’s with Beau Biden, the corrupt establishment’s bulldog that’s fighting whistle blowers.

    First he arrests Larry Sinclair at the Washington, D.C. press club to put the kibosh on the homosexual and cocaine tell all with Obama.

    Next, he has a hand in putting the Wilmington Courthouse shooter’s family on ice who complained about fighting hard criminal connections. Now they face life in prison for the wrong computer keytsrokes – a crime against daddy’s Big Brother enabled VAWA act.

    Now a group of vulnerable citizens describe possible NY, and NJ hard criminals involved with local government and once again the heavy hand of the establisment’s faithful Darth Vader Beau Biden comes into play. Maybe these people did go a little overboard but that is minor compared the Attorney General’s office has been politically hijacked. Who elected this man to make youtube commercials for sodomites or redefine the publically elected Sheriff? Just like Gates critized everything daddy Biden did, I feel the same way about his sonny Beau.

    Absolutely! Only one of them was breaking the law and trying to shuffle off responsibility for it.
