Jackson's crime has its reward — $138,400 per year in workers’ comp

Mobsters live and work under certain principles such as protecting their own. Congress and the federal government, likewise, always find a way to take care of lawmakers even when they are convicted of crimes.

This is a crime onto itself. In my lifetime I have never met anyone who is receiving $138,400 per year in workers compensation benefits and Social Security disability. And who's fucking paying for it!!!

BTW I wonder what his X-wife is getting after serving a year for tax fraud. After all, she served as alderman in the 7th ward and after the messy divorce I'm sure she could file a claim for 'emotional distress'. The sad part is. If these two cockroaches could run again (tomorrow) in their district they would win in a heartbeat. History proves it. These are the facts. 

In their district... it's like you have to be a crook or a pervert to get elected.


We all know being a congressman is a grueling demanding job, right? Congressmen are in session about 133 days per year, and clock in more than 250. They get extended time off and vacations. They don't have to worry about meeting payroll or overhead. They have an office where they can read and respond to constituents. They adjourn for several hours per day to a health club and gym in the Capitol. If an inch or two of snow comes to Washington, D.C., it's cause to close the Capitol.

It's somewhat similar to being in La Cosa Nostra, where guys get up about 10 a.m. They then take a steam at some bath house before visiting a coffee shop to chat with the crew to see what is going down on the street. At about dinner time, they head home for red wine and pasta. As one of the Godfathers once said on tape, "(L)et's not kid ourselves. This life of ours; this is a wonderful life. If we can get through life like this, and get away with it, hey, that's great."

I mention this because Jesse Jackson Jr., our former congressman, is claiming his lawmaker's job was so stressful, it caused a breakdown in his psyche, entitling him to workers' compensation benefits.

Jesse, 51, now is out of jail after pleading guilty in 2013 for violating federal campaign laws. Both Jesse and his wife now have filed for divorce.

Divorces have a way of exposing sordid details. As reported in the Chicago Tribune, this divorce has brought out the fact Jesse has been receiving $138,400 per year in federal workers' compensation benefits and Social Security disability benefits. The bulk of this money ($100,000) falls under federal workers' compensation, which he receives for his claim his job as congressman caused bipolar disorder and depression for which he is under treatment.

You need an occurrence date for a case similar to this. Jesse picked June 1, 2012, as the date his condition commenced.

So, here's a question you can ponder: Did the demands and rigors of Jesse's lawmaking job as of June 1, 2012, cause a mental breakdown leading to a bipolar disorder and depression entitling him to worker's compensation?

Jesse, you might recall had been in Congress for 17 years when he decided to run for re-election in 2012. Up until that point, no evidence was reported of mental issues that affected his daily conduct and performance. From June 1, 2012, to June 8, 2012, he cast 72 roll call votes. Later that month, his office advised he was on leave of absence because of "exhaustion." He then disappeared, checked into the Mayo Clinic at some point and never returned to Congress.

When I entered the voting booth in Bourbonnais on Nov. 6, 2012, not supporting Jesse and voting for the Republican candidate for Congress seemed like a no-brainer. By this time, Jesse was weighted down with serious problems. He was under federal investigation for misuse of his campaign funds, which has a way of messing up peoples' minds. In addition, there were 2008 allegations being investigated by the House Ethics committee for offering to raise $6 million in campaign money for then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich in exchange for a U.S. Senate seat.

As incredible as it might appear, when the election results came in, Jesse, without even campaigning, walked away with 63 percent of the vote. After the election, Jesse made a public appearance, thanking everyone for their vote. He stated he looked forward to serving us. Two weeks later, he resigned stating he lacked the ability to serve his constituents for health reasons. This left us footing the expenses for a special election. What followed, thereafter, for Jesse was an indictment, a plea of guilty and prison time.

Following his release from jail in 2015, he started to receive about $100,000 per year in tax-free workers' compensation benefits, which will be payable until he is no longer disabled. There exists a Congressional Research Service Report that states federal workers' compensation can be more lucrative than a federal pension.

So, getting back to my question, was it Jesse's job and duties as a congressman that caused his bi-polar disorder and depression? You decide.

Mobsters live and work under certain principles such as protecting their own. Congress and the federal government, likewise, always find a way to take care of lawmakers even when they are convicted of crimes.

Schumer's take on Gorsuch “He did not win anybody over with his testimony.”

Sometimes I get caught up in a dilemma. This is one of those times. Which one is the more glaring dumbass? One told us we should vote for ObamaCare to find out what's in it. I believe she followed her own advice because she had no idea WTF was in it herself.

The other had this to say about Gorsuch, “He did not win anybody over with his testimony.” If you decipher that statement 'anybody' means Democrats. Anyone who watched Gorsuch getting grilled by Democrats and how he handled it could not have been more impressed regardless of party lines.

So who wins the final vote. I'm going with Pelosi. When it comes to being a dumbass she makes Aaron Hernandez look like Einstein. 

Although Schumer only lost by a hanging chad.


Schumer was among five senators to declare their opposition to Gorsuch Thursday, even before the Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination had ended.

Schumer said he would lead a filibuster against Gorsuch, criticizing him as a judge who “almost instinctively favors the powerful over the weak.” Schumer said the 49-year-old Coloradan would not serve as a check on Trump or be a mainstream justice.

“There’s been an almost seismic shift in the caucus [against Gorsuch],” he told Politico. “He did not win anybody over with his testimony.”

The vote is expected in early April. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has not indicated whether he will employ the option.

Senate Democrats vowed Thursday to impede Gorsuch’s path to the Supreme Court, setting up a political showdown with implications for future openings on the high court.

Still irate that Republicans blocked President Obama’s nominee, Democrats consider Gorsuch a threat to a wide range of civil rights and think he was too evasive during 20 hours of questioning. Whatever the objections, Republicans who control the Senate are expected to ensure that President Donald Trump’s pick reaches the bench, perhaps before the middle of April.

A Supreme Court seat has been open for more than 13 months, since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Like Scalia, Gorsuch has a mainly conservative record in more than 10 years as a federal appellate judge.

Shortly before Schumer’s announcement, Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey, who faces re-election next year in a state Trump won, also announced his opposition. Casey said he had “serious concerns about Judge Gorsuch’s rigid and restrictive judicial philosophy, manifest in a number of opinions he has written on the 10th Circuit.”

Democratic Sens. Tom Carper of Delaware and Ron Wyden of Oregon, and Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent, also said they would vote against Trump’s nominee, among at least 11 senators who say they will oppose Gorsuch in the face of pressure from liberals to resist all things Trump, including his nominees.


Medicare Part G

On a tip from Ed Kilbane 

If you are an older senior citizen and can no longer take care of yourself and need Long-Term Care, but the government says there is no Nursing Home care available for you, what do you do?  You may opt for Medicare Part G.

The plan gives anyone 75 or older a gun (Part G) and one bullet.  You may then shoot one worthless politician.

This means you will be sent to prison for the rest of your life where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, a library, and all the health care you need.  Need new teeth?  No problem.Need glasses?  That's great.  Need a hearing aid, new hip, knees, kidney, lungs, sex change, or heart?  They are all covered! 

As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you at least as often as they do now!

And, who will be paying for all of this?  The same government that just told you they can't afford for you to go into a nursing home.

And you will get rid of a useless politician while you are at it.  And now, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any more income taxes! 
Is this a great country or what?

Now that you have solved your senior Long-Term Care problem, enjoy the rest of your week!

London lashes out at Donald Trump Jr over terror attack

Clearly, the Brits love their Muslims almost as much as Merkle loves hers! So let's analyze this a bit. 

Sadiq Khan (London's Muslim mayor) said he believes the threat of terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city” and encouraged Londoners to be vigilant to combat dangers. To be fair he said this in September long before the attack... not the day of. So what to make of this? When Muslims, in their perversion, kill infidels the vast majority of the Muslim community offers no opposition, no comment, no nothing, they never address the carnage preferring to scatter like cockroaches at the flick of a light switch. Sadiq Khan's “part and parcel of living in a big city” comment is just paving the way for  Muslim atrocities sure to come. He knows is kind... and what's worse the Brit's fell for it..check out the tweets. They hate Trump Jr. more than the terrorist who killed one of their own! Khan's tactics are just like Barry's 'workplace violence' bullshit after the fact...only Khan's is preemptive.

Wonder how many more Brits, living in a country invested with Muslims, have to die before they get it? Hopefully one day they will see the light and arm the police force. If they did maybe this could have been avoided.

Seriously, do you think Palmer would allow himself to be stabbed to death if he was armed?

This is the shooter who was described as an "Asian male" when the story first broke. The theory behind it? It's less risky to call him Asian than black or Muslim. He was born Adrian Elms before going over to the dark side taking the name Khalid Masood among several other aliases.


The residents of London are not impressed with Donald Trump Jr.'s criticism of their mayor in the wake of the terror attack that shook the city on Wednesday, and have taken to Twitter to slam President Trump's son.

'You use a terrorist attack on our city to attack London's Mayor for your own political gain. You're a disgrace,' wrote British Labour MP Wes Streeting.

Mayor Sadiq Khan was also asked to respond to Don Jr's comments on Thursday morning during an interview with CNN, and said: 'I'm not going to respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr. I've been doing far more important things over the past 24 hours.' 

Four people were killed and 40 more injured on Wednesday when lone-wolf attacker (Notice the use of lone-wolf instead of Muslim. BTW...8 more have been arrested and as of yet not been vindicated) Khalid Masood drove his car through crowds on Westminster Bridge before crashing into the parliament building and fatally stabbing an unarmed officer.

Masood was then shot dead.

Smug as a bug: London residents are attacking Donald Trump Jr. (above with brother Eric at the White House in January) for his criticism of their mayor on Wednesday just two hours after a terror attack

Wonder what they'll tweet when a Muslim sets off a bomb killing 26 within spitting distance of Big Ben? 

Churchill offered some good advice to bad no one paid him any heed.

Noncitizens voting across U.S., Frederick County count suggests

And the reason?
Absence of voter ID.

The debate over noncitizens voting was a hot topic a few years ago in Frederick County, a prosperous Maryland suburb wedged between Washington’s urban metropolis and the state’s rural western gateway to the rest of America.

Conservative activists went to court to show that noncitizens were registering fraudulently to vote. A court employee met their request by turning over pages of residents’ names disqualified from jury duty because of alien status.

When those lists were compared with voting records for just three years — 2007, 2008 and 2011 — nearly 180 noncitizens were found to have registered to vote. Of those, 63 had voted, some in multiple elections. The 180 registered votes came from 1,400 disqualified noncitizens in those three years, a rate of 12.8 percent.

The issue of noncitizen voters has taken on national importance. President Trump, who said 3 million or so voted illegally in November, plans to name a federal task force to investigate.

Frederick County’s numbers offer a limited snapshot from a handful of jury pools, but they indicate that noncitizens are registered to vote and are casting ballots in states, which administer federal, state and local elections.

“Obviously, there are people on the voting rolls who have no business being on the voter rolls,” said conservative activist Daniel M. Gray, a lawyer who filed the lawsuit. “What needs to be determined is how extensive is this. How many noncitizens weren’t summoned for jury duty and went ahead and voted?”

Census data matched to raw survey statistics indicate that as many as 2 million noncitizens could be registered to vote in the U.S.

Liberals dismiss such surveys. A group of political scientists declared that “zero” noncitizens vote in U.S. elections. Washington’s liberal news media used their analysis to pronounce studies showing otherwise as being “debunked.”

But the Frederick County court case deals with real people, not polls, and it shows aliens do indeed vote. And Frederick is not alone.

The Washington Times reported March 1 on two developments in Virginia:

• A state delegate asked 133 local governments to provide numbers on noncitizens disqualified from jury pools. The response was spotty, at best. But Loudoun County reported 9,000 such disqualifications from 2009 to 2014. Since potential juror names come from the Department of Motor Vehicles or voter registration rolls, the figure suggests a significant number of noncitizens voting.

• The Public Interest Legal Foundation, a conservative nonprofit against voter fraud, reported on its ongoing investigation. From six Virginia counties and two cities (of a total 133), it found 1,000 noncitizens registered to vote and that 200 of them had voted.

The Frederick County lawsuit was brought to U.S. District Court in Baltimore in 2014 by Mr. Gray, a lawyer in Fairfax County, Virginia, on behalf of four Maryland residents.

His argument: Illegal voters were violating legal voters’ right to due process. This was happening because, as the lawsuit states, “said actions allow plaintiffs’ lawful votes, cast as properly registered voters, to be diluted or canceled by votes cast by people unauthorized to vote under Maryland law.”

The lawsuit asked the federal judge to order Frederick County and the State Board of Elections to take steps to prevent noncitizens from voting.

The case did not go far.

But the court case allowed him to file the data from Frederick County — proof that illegal immigrants, albeit a tiny sporadic sample, vote in Maryland.

“This research is very revealing,” Mr. Gray told The Washington Times. “It means there’s lot more illegal voting than anyone is willing to concede. On the one hand, someone could say, ‘Oh, they are just avoiding jury duty and a convenient reason to do so.’ On the other hand, there’s an admission by them. They are showing they are not citizens of the United States.”

State Delegate Haven N. Shoemaker Jr., Carroll County Republican, has introduced in the Maryland General Assembly the Voter Registration Integrity Act.

It would require the jury commissioner and elections clerks to communicate with each other — something Mr. Shoemaker says they have not been doing. The jury commissioners would provide lists of those who have been excused for noncitizenship, and elections officials would cross-check voter rolls and take steps to remove any names that appear.

“It seems like common sense to me,” he said. “Because we have motor-voter in Maryland, you can go to MVA and register to vote there. And all you have to do is check a box that says you are a United States citizen.”

How many noncitizens vote in Maryland? “We don’t know,” Mr. Shoemaker said. “No one keeps statistics on that.”

Maryland does not ask voters for ID at the polls.

Mr. Shoemaker said the chances are slim that the Democrat-controlled assembly will pass his bill. The Democratic Party nationally embraces illegal immigrants by supporting sanctuary cities and providing driver’s licenses and access to welfare benefits to aliens.

A spokeswoman for the Maryland State Board of Elections did not return an email or a voicemail inquiry.

Mr. Gray said it is relatively easy for noncitizens to register to vote with a driver’s license or other state ID: Simply attest on an online form that you are a U.S. citizen, mail in the form and you are registered. Federal audits show that fraudulent IDs and Social Security numbers circulate among illegal immigrants.

Frederick County, with its 243,000 residents, is becoming more ethnically diverse. Its Hispanic population has increased to 8.4 percent.

One major study has been conducted on noncitizen voting.

An analysis by professors at Old Dominion University, using polling and other data, found that 6.4 percent of noncitizens voted illegally in the 2008 presidential election. The overall number could be as high as 2 million but also could be much lower.

A national poll of Hispanic U.S. residents in 2013 found that 13 percent of noncitizens said they were registered to vote. Compared to the U.S. census for that year, it could be mean that 800,000 to 2.2 million were registered voters.

In 2013, the census said, 11.8 million noncitizen Hispanics were living in the U.S.
