Three more members of Ironworkers Local 401 in Philadelphia pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of conspiracy, extortion, and racketeering in an ongoing RICO case against the labor union. They join eight others who have pleaded guilty in recent months to charges related to arson, sabotage, and violent intimidation of contractors who used non-union labor.
Ironworkers 401 is a large and influential union, responsible for constructing many of Philadelphia’s landmarks, such as Lincoln Financial Field, the Eagle’s football stadium, and the Comcast Center, the city’s tallest building. But this year has brought a series of indictments and revelations that continue to produce serious fallout for the labor group and its allies.
The latest hit came on Tuesday, when union member Richard Ritchie and business agents William O’Donnell and Christopher Prophet entered plea agreements admitting to their role in a conspiracy to coerce non-union construction sites into using “unwanted, unnecessary, and superfluous union labor.” Read more at breitbart.com.
On the air last night, fiery radio talk show host, Constitutional scholar and life-long Republican, Mark Levin, said that after the way Republicans have acted since their November 4th election victory, that he is “one inch away from leaving the Republican Party.” Many people do not know that Mr. Levin served in the entire eight years of the Reagan administration.
Listen to what Mark had to say last night here.
Long Island Woman Receives $1.12 Million For False Prosecution
A Long Island federal jury rewarded Nancy Genovese, 58, a mother of three, $1.12 million in compensatory damages after being arrested in 2009 for attempting to photograph a helicopter at a Air National Guard base in the Hamptons. Genovese intended to use the photo on a “Support the Troops” website; she was arrested for trespass and insulted as a “Teabagger.”
From The New York Post:
Southhampton cops searched her and found a legally owned rifle that she was transporting from a nearby rifle range. She contends a deputy sheriff arrived on the scene later and said to her, “I bet you are one of those Tea Party people.” When Genovese said she’s gone to Tea Party rallies, he allegedly said, “You’re a real right-winger, aren’t you?” and “You are a ‘Teabagger’” and then added that she’d be arrested for terrorism to make an example of other “right wingers.”

Note: There are issues on the forefront right now that may be much more significant to most people than this story: the CROmnibus, ISIS and President Obama’s lawless Executive Amnesty to name a few, but not to worry, I’ll be back at them soon – Just taking a few days away from them trying to calm down a little – ADB.
Gohmert: Leadership Wouldn’t Work With Conservatives on Cromnibus
Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said that conservatives in the House heard “not one word” from House GOP leadership on compromises to make changes to the cromnibus in order to get conservatives to vote for it even though “we were willing to work with them to compromise” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

The Nuclear Option – by Charles Hurt – Dec. 10, 2015
Call it the mysterious case of the Incredible Shrinking GOP.
Barely one month ago, the party sailed to victory in one of the biggest rout election waves of the past century. They ran the board and took control of the U.S. Senate. They grew to historic levels in the U.S. House. The Democratic Party was left in tatters in state, local, and governor races across the country.
But today, just a few weeks later, before GOPers even take hold of their new reins of power, the party is crying poverty. They are stricken with paralysis. House Speaker John A. Boehner, known for his weeping, begs powerlessness.
“Frankly, we have limited options and limited abilities to deal with it directly,” Mr. Boehner said last week when asked about President Obama’s unconstitutional executive action to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens presently living illegally in the U.S.
“Limited options?” “Limited abilities?” We have an unbridled madman in the White House right now taking a machete to the U.S. Constitution and the leader of the opposition party that was just thrust to power in a historic rejection of the president and his cleptocratic policies is now talking about “limited” options and abilities?
Funny, I don’t recall a single Republican running in a single race this year on a campaign that Republicans in Congress have only “limited” options and abilities to stop Mr. Obama. No, in fact, every single one of them ran their entire campaigns on the singular promise that we have to vote for Republicans so they could stop Mr. Obama. And Americans voted. [Bold type, mine] Continue reading at breitbart.com.
The following video clips are of several members of Congress questioning Obamacare architect and admitted liar, Dr. Jonathan Gruber, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator the
honorable arrogant Marilyn Tavenner during a hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on December 9th. I could write several pages of commentary, but the videos, which are just a small sampling of the questioners, speak for themselves.
“…so get over this damn glibness?” Rep. Cynthia Lummis finishes her questioning time at the health care hearing by talking about her husband, who died from a heart attack, and the problems they had with Obamacare.
Today is Pearl Harbor Day
by Joel B. Pollak * 5 Dec 2014
Once upon a time, the civil rights movement was deeply concerned about the rights of criminal defendants. Not anymore. Today, those who say they care most about civil rights are calling for grand jury reforms that would make it easier to indict those accused of certain, racial crimes.
Yet after the Trayvon Martin case, there is no guarantee those trials would lead to convictions. So I say: let us revive a time-honored practice: trial by ordeal.
It would work as follows. The accused racist–Darren Wilson, for example–would be arrested and led by Rev. Al Sharpton (or his designee) to the reflecting pool at the Lincoln Memorial, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech. The defendant would then be bound (gently) and thrown (humanely) into the dark, redemptive waters. If he sank to the bottom, he would be acquitted. If he floated, he would be convicted.
Of course, those exonerated by the ordeal would still drown. Yet they would die with dignity. Their sacrifice for the sake of racial justice would earn them a place in the pantheon of “the struggle.” They would also set an example for others, whose commitment to equality may be weak or superficial at best.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” - Joseph Goebels, Propaganda Minister in Nazi Germany.
Since Ms. Norton’s congressional district is Washington, DC, she does not have a vote. Thank God that at least one part of our Constitution is still working.
Sean Hannity was left perplexed on Thursday night when Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) proclaimed she has no interest in reviewing evidence released concerning the officer-involved killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
“Did you read the evidence that was released in this case? Hannity asked.
“I did not, and that is not a concern,” Holmes replied.
“The evidence isn’t a concern? What?” The visibly stunned host shot back. Hannity Rips Into Eleanor Holmes Norton: You Didn’t Read Ferguson Evidence?
Jeb Bush was interviewed on December 1st by The Wall Street Journal. He spoke about his possible (likely) run for president in 2016 and his possible strategy – It sounded like a tutorial for would be RINOs
On his December 2nd radio show, Levin spared few words about his sentiments about the newest Bush trying to continue the presidential dynasty. Listen to the above clip. Also referring to Jeb Bush, Levin was quoted in a recent article that appeared at the washingtonexaminer.com: “He’s very boring. He doesn’t elicit excitement and energy outside a very small circle of wealthy corporatists and GOP Beltway operatives. Time to move on.”
Schlafly: Don’t Let Republican Elitists Nominate Someone Like Jeb Bush
Author Phyllis Schlafly’s “A Choice Not an Echo” caused waves in 1964 by taking on the Republican ‘Kingmakers’ who seemed to ignore the needs of true conservatives. Fifty years later, she’s still a thorn in the Establishment’s side. This week, Schlafly released the 50th anniversary edition of her groundbreaking book (You can purchase it here.) She told Townhall why any candidate considering running for office in 2016 needs to read it.
Congratulations on your anniversary edition of “A Choice Not an Echo.” I know part of the reason you decided to do this anniversary edition was because it marked 50 years. But was the current political environment also a factor in your decision to release this new version?
“It was a major factor, because we have a two-party system in this country and I do believe we have to work within the Republican Party to get on the right track, since I really have no hope of getting the Democratic Party on the right track – and the Republican Party is still a fight between the Establishment, or the people we call the RINOS, (Republican in Name Only) and the grassroots. I want to activate the grassroots to realize they can be the dominant factor in the Republican Party and nominate a candidate for president who is our choice, such as the example of Ronald Reagan in 1980.” Continue reading at townhall.com.
