Photoshop credit: VVM Obama’s Super-Czar Is on the Loose by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Here is the operating motto of the Obama White House: “So let it be written, so let it be done!” Like Yul Brynner’s Pharaoh Ramses character in Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments,” the demander in chief stands with […]
You knew it was coming. The Kamp Alinsky Kids are taking a sight-seeing tour today.

According to the NY Daily News: “A ‘Millionaires March’ will visit the homes – […]
This is from Corruptocrat Sen. Chris Dodd’s official Twitter feed. Leave your best guess about who the message was meant for and what “sh*t” his office is talking about…Angelo Mozilo and one last sweetheart deal? Harry Reid and shamnesty? A K Street lobbyist dangling an enticing, post-retirement job prospect? An update from Dodd’s staff, who […]
Blink and you probably missed it. In yet another classic Friday news dump, Countrywide junk mortgage mogul and Democrat crony Angelo Mozilo copped a $67.5 million plea to avert a high-stakes public trial in the heat of the midterm election season.

We continue to discover how much wider and deeper the tentacles of the Countrywide Financial Corporation VIP program reached. As was widely reported last month, some 153 Fannie Mae employees reaped Countrywide VIP benefits. That’s in addition to the 30 VIP loans that went to other Senators and their employees besides corruptocrat Democrat Sen. Chris […]
Corrupt and corrupter.

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers When announcing the passage of the Dodd/Frank “financial reform” bill — a fix authored by the same people who helped get the financial system majorly FUBAR in the first place — President Obama really eased my fears when he said this: We’ll put in place the toughest consumer financial protections […]
Charter member of the Team Obama Culture of Corruption During the Christmas break, corruptocrat Sen. Chris Dodd held a press conference hailing the Senate government health care takeover bill. But he couldn’t distract from the stink of his ethics scandals and his mounting unpopularity at home. A prescient constituent heckled him during the press conference: […]
“You’re not gonna get re-elected.”
I noted Barney Frank’s cave-in to CBC demands for a $6 billion payoff on the House Dems’ financial industry power grab yesterday. Well, the “reform” package passed this afternoon 223-202 with all Republicans and 27 Democrats voting no. The roll call vote is here. Democrat Rep. Barney Frank’s counterpart in the Senate, corruptocrat Sen. Chris […]
He’s pulling out the stops in Washington with a swine flu power grab and a “financial reform” bill to distract from his ethics quagmire, but corruptocrat Sen. Chris Dodd isn’t fooling home state voters. Continuing his year-long slide in the polls, the latest numbers show Dodd falling further (h/t DrewM at Ace of Spades HQ): […]

Ever since we saw Up, our family has made a game of giving out “Cone of Shame” awards. Thought it would make a great blog feature, too. The inaugural award winners: Barbara Boxer, for last week’s naked display of liberal condescension, vapidity, and tone-deafness in her “I’ve got a black person’s report right here!” rejoinder […]
Sen. Chris Dodd is an unrepentant crony Democrat caught up in multiple sleazy scandals, hypocrisy, and lies that have turned off his constituents and his own local party leaders. Sen.
