As I noted last week, today’s Democrat party is not the Democrat party of your grandparents (and even if it were, that would be nothing to be proud of – the Dem party has a sordid history of racism, voter fraud, and communist appeasement.)
Now we have a party of corrupt, craven criminals grasping for power in any way they can – lying and defrauding the American public, and silencing dissent – on top of being the party of racism, voter fraud and communist appeasement.
Here are the next installment of what I think will be a regular feature highlighting the criminal enterprise known as the Democrat party:

Teachers who are upset with union contract negotiations in the Abington Heights School District are taking their frustrations out on students by refusing to write letters of recommendation.
The selfish move, which is a common pressure tactic among education labor unions, will undoubtedly impact the ability of students to apply to college or other post secondary programs, although district officials contend they’re working to address the issue, the Times-Tribune reports.
Union president James Maria told the new site teachers in the district aren’t required to write students recommendation letters, and they don’t plan to until the school board reconsiders its position on retroactive pay. School and union officials have been in negotiations for a new teachers union contract since the last one expired in 2011.
The same people who like to say they are “for the children.” No, these are money grubbing corruptocrats who are only out for themselves.
Just a tad creepy.
Drew, I know this doesn’t mean you don’t care:
We’ve got our biggest fundraising deadline of the year at midnight tonight.
It looks like you haven’t chipped in yet.
Drew, I know that doesn’t mean you don’t care about fighting for change — we can’t all make a donation every time a fundraising deadline rolls around.
What makes this all work is that supporters like you chip in what you can, when you can. When we each do our part to help, it adds up.

This is how they treat their friends….
Judge Jan Jurden was appointed by former Delaware Democratic Governor Ruth Ann Minner.
A Superior Court judge who sentenced a wealthy du Pont heir to probation for raping his 3-year-old daughter noted in her order that he “will not fare well” in prison and needed treatment instead of time behind bars, court records show.
Judge Jan Jurden’s sentencing order for Robert H. Richards IV suggested that she considered unique circumstances when deciding his punishment for fourth-degree rape. Her observation that prison life would adversely affect Richards was a rare and puzzling rationale, several criminal justice authorities in Delaware said. Some also said her view that treatment was a better idea than prison is a justification typically used when sentencing drug addicts, not child rapists.
Did some money change hands? Seeing as the Judge is a Democrat….
Jessica Vaughan, the report’s author, called it a form of “catch and release.” She said agents at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement received more than 720,000 hits on immigrants who could be eligible for deportation but filed charges against fewer than 195,000 of them.
Of those let go, 68,000 had criminal convictions on their records. All told, more than 870,000 immigrants have been ordered removed from the U.S. but are defying the government and refusing to leave.
So what if this endangers the public – you have to break a few eggs to make a permanent Democrat majority.
Via NY Post:
Bill de Blasio’s new mayoral campaign aide is a Twitter terror who has littered the Web site with foul-mouthed rants against everyone from the NYPD to the NAACP.
“NYPD fatally shoot knife-wielding man in Times Square. (VIDEO) F–k. The. Police,” ranted de Blasio volunteer coordinator Kicy Motley on Aug. 11 2012, after cops shot Darrius Kennedy, 51, on Seventh Avenue.
In addition to using gangsta-rap-like language to blast the cops, the campaign aide also slammed the NAACP in January for siding with drink companies against Bloomberg’s soda ban.
“@NAACP aka corporate d–k riders. Standing with soda makers for a few bucks,” she wrote.
In February, she linked to an article highlighting Bloomberg’s pro-gun-control efforts and wrote, “Hey rest of #America, welcome to Bloomberg using his #money to mess up your sh-t.”
She also used Twitter to cheer crazed ex-LAPD cop Chris Dorner, who went on a wild shooting spree across Southern California after claiming he was fired because of racism.
Did De Blasio vet this woman? Of course he did – and they liked what he saw.
Yes, still a phony scandal.
WASHINGTON —Before the Obama administration gave an inaccurate narrative on national television that the Benghazi attacks grew from an anti-American protest, the CIA’s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no such demonstration occurred, documents and interviews with current and former intelligence officials show.
The attack was “not an escalation of protests,” the station chief wrote to then-Deputy CIA Director Michael J. Morell in an email dated Sept. 15, 2012 — a full day before the White House sent Susan E. Rice to several Sunday talk shows to disseminate talking points claiming that the Benghazi attack began as a protest over an anti-Islam video.
So we now know beyond a reasonable doubt that they blatantly lied to the American people about that. What more – the corrupt Democrat Media Complex let them get away with it.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.”
Roorda read the quote and then asked Rehder, “Who are you coming after next?”
When Roorda was challenged by another Republican for making reference to Nazi Germany, Rooda added, “Lady I never used the word ‘Nazi.’ I hope you don’t think I was comparing you to a 1939-era Nazi German just because you’re doing the same thing that they were.”
The shameful comment resulted in condemnation from Speaker Tim Jones.
But of course a Democrat would lash out in such extreme terms at a Republican trying to rein in their corrupt criminal enterprise.
Power Steering: Government Motors Recalling Six Million Plus Vehicles Due to Potentially-Dangerous Defects; No One In Media Asks Where GM’s Top CEO, Barack Obama, Was During All This
Jim Geraghty notes the very underplayed angle here — that the government knew about some of the problems at Government Motors and did nothing, if you can believe such a thing.
Seven years ago, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration manager recommended investigating the reason for the non-deploying airbags in General Motors’ 2003-2006 Chevrolet Cobalt and Saturn Ion cars. This was revealed in a memo issued by the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The chief of NHTSA’s Defects Assessment Division e-mailed other officials in the Office of Defects Investigation in September 2007, saying owner complaints from 2005 and “early warning” data about warranty repairs and injuries justified an investigation. According to an interview between current NHTSA officials and the House committee’s staff, the agency reconsidered after reviewing the data thus deciding not to open a formal investigation.
Geraghty asks: Where the hell is the press? This is not just a GM story; this is a government story. So where the hell are the stories?
…even Howie Kurtz’ explanation — he always wants to find non-ideological reasons to explain away ideological bias — itself reveals ideological bias.
He says the press needs “someone to blame” in a story. Apparently, if it’s not clear who to blame, they just have no interest.
Why should “Someone To Blame” be required to generate press interest?
Even if you don’t know who to blame in the Government Motors recall, the story is still worth reporting. You might not know who to blame for the 2005 Thailand tsunami, but the story is still certainly worth reporting.
Let me modify Kurtz’ proposed explanation for something closer to the truth:
When something awful has happened, and it’s not clear that you can blame a Republican for it, or, even worse, that aDemocrat may ultimately be to blame, the press cannot find any interest in reporting the story or asking questions.
The press likes asking questions whose answers they already know. They like asking “Are Republicans to blame?” when they think Republicans are to blame.
As Rush likes to say, the MSM are the “willing accomplices” of the criminal Democrat party.
Democrats are proud of their shock troops in social media. There’s no hate speech like the hate speech lefties spew on Twitter on a daily basis in their relentless attempts to demoralize conservatives.
Take a good look at who these people are:
