HOW NUTS ARE OBAMA'S CZARS? - Obama's science czar made the proclamation that sometime after a baby is born it "will ultimately develop into a human being." John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, not only believes that unborn babies are not human beings, be doesn't even believe babies are human beings after birth. Read more To make matters worse, Barack Obama has appointed many "czars" to oversee a wide range of issues including health and energy. Congressman Jack King (R-GA) has prepared an interesting video on "Czarist America."
Rangel purchased a rental property in 1987 at the Punta Cana Yacht Club in the Dominican Republic. Thing is, Mr. Rangel has apparently not been reporting rental income from the luxury beach-front villa. The villa is rented out most of the year at $500 a night in the low season and over $1,000 a night in the high season. For the years 2004 and 2005, he reported no more than $5,000 in rental income per year, and in 2006 and 2007 no income at all from the property.
Chairman Rangel also reported a home in Washington, DC as his primary residence, instead of his home in New York, to escape property taxes. He rents four apartments for himself in New York at special "controlled" rates that were intended to allow those in poverty to be able to hold on to apartments in that expensive city. He is considered a "hardship" case to receive the rates. He maintains an office in one of the apartments which is against the "rent control" rules.
When Rangel leaves Congress, we will pay him a six figure retirement figure each year while he lounges in his villa in the Dominican Republic. But don't worry, he is making sure that you and I pay our fair share of taxes to support him. Congressman Rangel has a leading role in increasing taxes to pay for Barack Obama's extreme socialist agenda. See WSJ editorial
HATE CRIMES "AMENDMENT - There was no way to stop the Thought Crimes legislation pushed by radical Democrats in Congress .... BUT ... Senator Sam Brownback was able to add an amendment in the Senate to protect religious speech. Without his amendment it could literally be against the law to quote the Bible on issues of homosexuality. The Brownback amendment was agreed to by an overwhelming majority of the Senate, with a vote of 78-13. Although passed in the Senate, his amendment is not in the House version of the bill. That means it is up to a House-Senate conference committee to decide if it will be in the final bill. Because "Hate Crimes" legislation was attached to a defense authorization bill it is important to contact members of the House Armed Services Committee, both Democrat and Republican, on this issue. Contact List Let them know how you feel about the Brownback Amendment to "Hate Crimes."
THE AUGUST RECESS - The House should adjourn today for their annual August recess. The Senate should adjourn next Friday. Most congressmen will spend most of the recess in their districts holding "town-hall' meetings and raising funds for their reelections next year. We can only pity the 56 "blue dog" Democrats in the House who were elected in conservative districts. Most have voted for the extreme radical agenda placed before them by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. They must face the fact that the "health reform" pushed by Democrat leaders uses tax dollars not only to pay for abortions, but for the extremely expensive sex change operations for the mentally unstable.
Salon 657 advertises in the "adult entertainment" section of the Providence Phoenix. Services offered are $100 per hour, which includes "a complementary cocktail. Make no mistake; this is not a massage parlor, it is a brothel. Prostitution is legal in two states, Nevada and Rhode Island. There are numerous brothels in Rhode Island including Spa81 in Providence. While the two I mentioned offer "American women," most are operated by Asians and the prostitutes are most likely forcibly trafficked. The legality of prostitution in this small state has only come to light recently after a prosecuting attorney there agreed to allow 16 year old girls to perform in strip clubs -- as long as they got off work by 11:00 PM on school nights!
