Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler » Well D’Uh!

(Via LC & IB Ace)

WASHINGTON– An FBI raid on a Louisiana congressman’s Capitol Hill office was legal, a federal judge ruled Monday.

Don’t bother calling U-Haul for a while. The lines are blocked by urgent calls from 534 other thieving, lying, stealing weasels in need of immediate transportation for their ill-gotten loot.

Chief U.S. District Judge Thomas F. Hogan said members of Congress are not above the law.

Rest assured that the self-anointed royalty in DC are going to appeal THAT decision immediately.

“Not above the LAW? Do you drooling, taxpaying plebeians know who we ARE?”

He rejected requests from lawmakers and Democratic Rep. William Jefferson to return material seized by the FBI in a May 20-21 search of Jefferson’s office.

In a 28-page opinion, Hogan dismissed arguments that the first-ever raid on a congressman’s office violated the Constitution’s protections against intimidation of elected officials.

Instead he pointed out that the fact that it was the first ever only proved that what was once an august body created by our Founders that we could be rightfully be proud of, is now a den of amoral, unscrupulous, slimy, lying common thieves and whores.

You know, the kind our Founders would’ve strung up from the nearest available tree and left to be picked clean by crows.

The raid on Jefferson’s office angered members of Congress, some of whom threatened to retaliate by tinkering with the FBI and Justice Department budgets.

What’s that I’m doing? Oh, I’m just “tinkering” with some hemp rope. Why do you ask?

Really classy of the swine in DC, isn’t it? You suggest that they have to obey the law along with the rest of us, and their response, in a time of war, is to threaten with crippling our domestic defense against terrorism unless we allow them their “right” to keep their offices as holy, untouchable sanctuaries for the evidence of their crimes.

And the passengers of Flight 93 gave up their lives for THAT bunch of slimeballs?

    Can anyone name the last Congressman to be ejected by Congress for criminal activity?

  2. Unregistered Comment by Marvin UNITED STATES

    This is the judge who issued said search warrant…so, of course, his decision is that his search warrant was legal…
    We must wait till the appeals court rules before we celebrate…
    Frankly, I think the question of the legality of this search will go to the Supreme Court. 5-4 but in whose favor.

  3. sig94 Comment by sig94 UNITED STATES

    The last one? No, but I remember this, in 1978:

    Abscam (sometimes ABSCAM) was an FBI sting operation run out of the FBI’s Hauppauge, Long Island office which initially targeted trafficking in stolen property and thereafter was converted to a public corruption investigation. The investigation ultimately led to the conviction of a United States Senator, six members of the House of Representatives, the Mayor of Camden, New Jersey, members of the Philadelphia City Council, and an inspector for the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

    My mom just moved to Hauppauge. She bought a nice little condo there. :grin:

    Of the thirty-one targeted officials, one senator, Harrison A. Williams (D-NJ), and five members of the House of Representatives (John Jenrette (D-SC), Richard Kelly (R-FL), Raymond Lederer (D-PA), Michael “Ozzie” Myers (D-PA) and Frank Thompson (D-NJ)) were convicted of bribery and conspiracy in separate trials in 1981. Another, John M. Murphy (D-NY), was convicted of a lesser charge.

    Why couldn’t the passengers of Flight 93 have been on one of the planes that hit the WTC?? Downing one of those planes would have done more good for this country than stopping one bound for Capitol Hill.

    The more I hear about the hijinks in D.C., the more I wish for a pissed off JAL 747 pilot that lost a brother in a bogus war w/ the U.S. to take a steak knife to his co-pilot and ‘jack his plane and hit a JOINT session of congress.

    Then we could get a down to earth guy who DOESN’T want the job of POTUS, and mebbe get a majority of REAL Americans who want to UN-fuck the country, instead of the band of thieves currently infesting that den of iniquity that are fucking the country for everything they can get. (a la Tom Clancy)

    Now most thieves haven’t the scope of vision for the crimes perpetrated by congress and whores give some benifit in the form of pleasure, don’t be so insulting to the lower classes.

    Now THAT judge deserves a pizza….and after all, if our soldiers can stand before the public, so can those assholes in congress…..

    Damage control. THE asset.
    When they found Vince Foster’s body in Fort Marcy Park, all homicide investigatory decorum and evidence quiclky evaporated, securing the presidency.

    Willie just didn’t have the same kinda friends.

    Yeah, the Congressmen and Senators being held to the same laws that we peasant serfs are held to, what a novel idea!

  9. juandos Comment by juandos UNITED STATES

    Did Rep. William Jefferson and his defenders forget the following?

    “I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

    Never forget, sig94, that one Conressman Murtha barely escaped entanglement in abscam.

    “Not above the LAW? Do you drooling, taxpaying plebeians know who we ARE?”

    Why yes we do! Trafficant (who’s actually doing time go figure), McKinney, Wright, Kennedy (D-Saturn), Kennedy (D-Uranus), Cunningham (who used to be my congressman in the 90’s, I guess I was fooled), Jefferson, and a slew of others.

    You all wanted to go to Congress “to serve”. And you served up pork, and bribes, and kickbacks, and all sorts of nefarious activity to make you so rich you could fart through silk.

    You all ought to be at Gitmo, but the current occupants would complain about the stench.

    Please, Misha, do something about this. Rope. Tree. and so on and so forth.

    I am down here in South Africa, trying to explain to the people down here that they don’t really have to subject themselves to a lying, corrupt, thieving government, and then this comes out?

    Oh, and to the 534 other dis-honorable gentlemen. In case you feel like “tinkering” with Justice and FBI: We have a constitution. Obey it, lest we citizens show you the power of the first few amendments to said document.

    Whole lotta “D”’s there and only one “R” not a bad exchange.

    Congress weasels are no better than the rest of us and should be tried witout regard to what we pay them for. Since we don’t normally get what we pay them for anyway.

    If I remember it right, isn’t this the same sack of shit who literally forced a contingent of NG’s to go to his flooded home in NO and retrieve computers, papers, frozen assets, and so on?

    Cunningham pissed a lot of San Diegans off, PR. That mo’fo’ got what was coming to him. Kudos to the San Diego Union Tribune for exposing that cancerous asshole.

    Yes, it is.

    While everybody on the left side of the aisle were bitching about the National Guard not doing enough to help the “pore, oppressed masses” of NOLA and blaming it all on the President for his reluctance to violate Posse Comitatus which they, indubitably, would have had no problem with. (That was sarcasm, by the way).

    It’s like shitting on somebody’s doorstep and then ringing the doorbell to demand toilet paper.

    And yes, I agree completely about Cunningham. Not only was he a thieving piece of shit, he also added insult to injury by being somebody who ought to have been a role model as a result of his service. Acting like a cup of putrid slime is one thing when it’s expected of you, doing so with an honorable past is worse. See also: McCain, John.

    An honorable past doesn’t buy you any freebies with me, it only pisses me off worse when you turn out to be a worthless wanker.

    But even dressed in prison orange, Cunningham is still better than my current “congressman”.

    2nd district Illinois. Keeps saying “I am somebody’s son!” Jesse Jackson Jr.

    Talk about a pile of putrid slime.

    Seriously enough, PR, about the only thing I would want to know from the Panderer’s Apprentice is how his baby 1/2 brother is doing. Of course, the appropriate time to ask is at one of his pep rallies ;)

    But even dressed in prison orange, Cunningham is still better than my current “congressman”.

    I’ll tell you Purple Raider, I’m not so sure. I do know one thing- I do NOT envy the voters in the 50th at all. The have a choice in November between a wannabe RINO and a completely ignorant lefty. Christ on a pogo stick, Cunningham (I think it was Richard Louv in the U-T who said he had lost the right to be called “Duke”, for obvious reasons) pisses me off so bad, If I could just get close enough, I would slap the everloving shit out of that doddering skidmark. That greedy fuck had it all- a gold-plated military career, a well regarded career in politics, considerable respect in and out of Congress, a reasonably safe seat that was his to give away, the ear of the President when he needed it, the agreeable constituency- he had all that. He didn’t need the refurbed Rolls Royce, the 18th century French furniture, or, the thing that finally tipped the scale, that real estate deal moving him into a house well above his means. I mean- a menu card showing the types and amounts of his requested bribes?? Are you fucking serious!?!?

    I’m sorry for the rant, Purple Raider. In no way do I mean to imply that JJ2 is your fault. If anything, fault your local GOP- they apparently refuse to run someone strong enough, or back someone well enough, to have a shot against The Second Coming of Narcissism. But- credit where it’s due. Jackson, AFAIK, hasn’t been caught up in the sort of rot that Cunningham displayed in Technicolor. I guess we’ll eventually see.

    Until he actually did it. At which point they would turn 180 degrees and condem him for both, being slow about it, and doing it at all.
