ASSociated Press: Grand Jury to Hear McKinney Run-In Case

A federal grand jury will soon begin hearing evidence about Rep. Cynthia McKinney’s run-in with a Capitol Police officer, a lawyer familiar with the case said late Wednesday.

The lawyer, who declined to be identified because of grand jury secrecy, confirmed that federal prosecutors had agreed to get involved in the case in which a black lawmaker is accused of striking a white officer after he tried to stop her from entering a House office building without going through a security checkpoint

U.S. Capitol Police Chief Terrance Gainer said McKinney turned the officer’s failure to recognize her into a criminal matter when she failed to stop at his request, and then struck him.

“He reached out and grabbed her and she turned around and hit him,” Gainer said on CNN. “Even the high and the haughty should be able to stop and say, ‘I’m a congressman’ and then everybody moves on.”

“This is not about personality,” added House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill. “It’s not about racial profiling. It’s about making this place safer.”

Just charge and arrest this NUTTER. Let her tell it to the grand jury and/or a judge.

For her part, McKinney wasn’t backing down from the argument. She charged anew that racism is behind what she said is a pattern of difficulty in clearing Hill security checkpoints.

“This has become much ado about hairdo,” she said Wednesday on CBS’ “The Early Show.” McKinney, a Georgia Democrat, recently dropped her trademark cornrows in favor of a curly brown afro.

The police aren’t the ones who are racist, one Republican said.

“Cynthia McKinney is a racist,” Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas, said on Fox News Channel’s “Fox and Friends,” a day after abandoning his reelection bid under a cloud of ethics charges. “She has a long history of racism. Everything is racism with her. This is incredible arrogance that sometimes hits these members of Congress, but especially Cynthia McKinney.”

Stay tuned…..

mckinneyapr5web5ya Representative Cynthia McKinney Watch: Georgia GOP Seizes on McKinney

GOP tries to link foes to Cynthia McKinney, escorted Monday by Tony Lane.

AJC (Via Donkey Cons): State GOP seizes on McKinney

U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, already in the spotlight for striking a Capitol police officer, became part of the Georgia governor’s race Monday.

The state Republican Party painted McKinney as “the face of the state Democratic Party,” while Democrats accused the GOP of resorting to “gutter politics” for trying to use her as an issue at the outset of the campaign season.

Ok, it seems that McKinney is a loose cannon that the Democrats are either afraid or embarassed to support.

Political observers say it’s just the opening round in what will be a volatile campaign season with the control of Congress, the Legislature and the governor’s office up for grabs.

McKinney has had a penchant for making headlines since her election to Congress in 1992. She accused President Bush of having prior knowledge of the 9/11 terror attacks and doing nothing to stop them. She has backed the Castro regime in Cuba. And after her 2002 loss to Denise Majette, her father, a former state lawmaker, blamed “J-E-W-S” for her loss.

Donkey Cons blog has put together some of her extreme political views:

Flap thinks this may be the beginning of the end of Representative McKinney’s political career.

Stay tuned…….

share save 120 16 Hillary Clinton Watch: House Immigration Bill   I Realize I Would Be a Criminal, Too. My Staff Would Be Criminal...

clintonapr5web3iu Hillary Clinton Watch: House Immigration Bill   I Realize I Would Be a Criminal, Too. My Staff Would Be Criminal...

Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) speaks to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce at their Legislative Luncheon in Washington April 5, 2006. Clinton spoke about the on going debate on immigration and the need for health care reform.

ASSociated Press: N.Y. Sen. Clinton says immigration bill would make her a criminal

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton charged Wednesday that a House GOP immigration bill would make her and her Senate aides criminals, and warned of a “ticking time bomb” lurking in the U.S. economy.

Clinton’s latest comments on the immigration debate in Congress follow earlier remarks in which she said the bill, written by Reps. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., and Peter King, R-N.Y., would probably criminalize “even Jesus himself.”

Speaking to the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, she claimed her work on behalf of New York constituents would run afoul of the House bill setting penalties for anyone who knowingly assists or encourages illegal immigrants to remain here.

“I realize I would be a criminal, too. My staff would be criminal. We help people with all kinds of problems,” said Clinton, D-N.Y., prompting titters in the audience.

PANDER PANDER PANDER……

First to Blacks (remember Bill’s office is in Harlem) and now to Hispanics……..

Rep. Peter King charged Clinton is the one spreading misinformation, saying the only way his bill would make her a criminal is if she was a “coyote,” another term for an immigrant smuggler.

“I hope that Sen. Clinton is not suggesting that she and her staff are members of an alien smuggling gang, or that she is a coyote posing as a senator,” said King.

Nahhhh, Representative King not a coyote……something worse…….political hack.

share save 120 16 Massachusetts Health Care Plan Watch: Senator Hillary Clinton Praises Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romneys Health Care Plan

romneyapr5web0ey Massachusetts Health Care Plan Watch: Senator Hillary Clinton Praises Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romneys Health Care Plan

Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney delivers his annual State of the Commonwealth, January 18, 2006. Massachusetts lawmakers overwhelmingly approved an ambitious health-care bill on Tuesday that would make it the first U.S. state to require nearly all residents to be insured or face penalties.

ASSociated Press: Clinton Praises Romney Health Care Plan

A Massachusetts plan that blends the Democratic goal of universal health care with the Republican philosophy of personal responsibility could be a model for politicians nationwide — and a presidential launching pad for its chief sponsor, GOP Gov. Mitt Romney.

The proposal, approved Tuesday by Massachusetts’ Democratic-led Legislature, won Romney cautious praise from Democrats, including a longtime champion of health care overhaul: Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York.

“To come up with a bipartisan plan in this polarized environment is commendable,” said the former first lady, who led President Clinton’s failed health care campaign.

She embraced the Massachusetts measure’s most striking aspect — requiring people to purchase health insurance — but questioned Romney’s plans to eliminate a fee on companies that do not provide health insurance for employees.

“That would unravel the plan,” Clinton said.

Of course, the LEFT and Clinton like this compulsory state sponsored plan – they want national universal care and this is a step toward their goal.

Hugh Hewitt calls this bill a “Home Run” for Governor Mitt Romney.

Flap says Hugh Hewitt has it WRONG.

Romney STRIKES OUT with this proposal.

Romney’s health care plan is another socialistic attempt to nationalize medicine. Why would ANY conservative support this fiasco?

Sally C. Pipes over at National Review has Unhealthy in Massachusetts, The Romney plan doesn’t cut it.

READ IT ALL.

As for Hillary……she will have to debate health care with Rudy Giuliani in the 2008 Presidential debates not a light weight (who has decided to NOT run for re-election) like Mitt Romney.
