It's Time for Beltway Barnacle Orrin Hatch To Go by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Six-term entrenched incumbent Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, is attacking his conservative challenger, Dan Liljenquist, over his alleged support for tax hikes in Washington. My sides ache. Liljenquist has never voted for federal tax hikes or massive entitlement spending or... Read More
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... Read More
You knew it was coming. The Kamp Alinsky Kids are taking a sight-seeing tour today. After a month of trashing Zuccotti Park at a public cost of $2 million per day, the riff-raff is marching uptown to occupy...wealthy people's private homes. According to the NY Daily News: "A 'Millionaires March' will visit the homes -... Read More
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... Read More
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. He and his henchmen admitted no wrongdoing: Just days before the start of his... Read More
How privileged Democrats pay for their houses by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2010 Like millions of Americans, Delaware Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell has had trouble covering her mortgage and other bills over the years. Her opponents consider this a scandal of disqualifying proportions. But there's a bigger disgrace: It's all the sanctimonious Democrats... Read More
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... Read More
Corrupt and corrupter.
I'm the corruptocrat more responsible for creating the banking meltdown conditions. No, I am! As you all know, the Senate passed the Dodd-Frank financial "reform" sham last week (see my post on the GOP-enabled vote here). Today, President Obama will sign the 2,319-page monstrosity into law. The Associated Press calls it "sweeping." My adjectives are... Read More
Scroll for updates.. With GOP assistance on its drafting and three reported Republican votes all but guaranteeing its final passage in the Senate (Snowe, Collins, and Scott Brown), the Dodd-Frank monstrosity masquerading as "financial reform" is on its way. Read and weep: "Achievement?" How about a different a-word? I like "assault." That's how Heritage describes... Read More
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:... Read More
"You're not gonna get re-elected."
Charter member of the Team Obama Culture of Corruption Corruptocrat Chris Dodd secured a Hospital Helper in the Demcare bill, has happily exploited the swine flu to expand the role of government, and made sanctimonious noises about banking regulatory reform to cover his own lying, sordid record as the Senator from Countrywide, but the voters...

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... Read More
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):... Read More
Hold still. It's gonna hurt.
The Democrats never miss a Rahm-esque opportunity to exploit a crisis. Corruptocrat Sen. Chris Dodd is using the swine flu to expand the feds' role in dictating employee health benefits. Enough to make you truly sick to your stomach (via LAT, h/t reader Steve G.): Against the backdrop of the H1N1 flu pandemic, congressional Democrats... Read More
"...you should have exercised more vigilance."
Birds of a feather...cover each others' posteriors: Via Marketwatch: You can find the dismissal letters signed by the Senate Ethics Committee here. Last week: Dodd and Obama: Corrupt birds of a feather; Update: Resisting subpoena; Dodd has p
Scroll for updates... Dodd and Obama: Corrupt birds of a feather by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2009 Everything you need to know about false Hope and Change can be found in one picture: The image of President Obama embracing embattled Sen. Chris Dodd. The embattled Democrat is in deep doo-doo over his Countrywide sweetheart... Read More
They lied. They lied. They lied. Let's repeat that one more time: They lied: The last chapter of Culture of Corruption highlights President Obama's embrace of corruptocrat Chris Dodd as a shining symbol of the Hope and Change farce. He endorsed Dodd's 2010 re-election
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. Orrin Hatch is the vice chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. What the hell is Sen. Hatch doing praising Dodd as "one of the... Read More
Chris Dodd's cottage in Ireland, a joint purchase facilitated by crony contributor and convicted insider trader Edward Downe, is magical. Watch it magically appreciate: The questions about the sweetheart deal were raised by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch back in April: Judicial Watch's complaint alleges that Senator Dodd appeared at a hearing on behalf of Edward...

Fall, fall on your sword, ye Purveyor of Hypocritical Indignation. Via CNN, unscrupulous borrower and No. 1 AIG benefactor Chris Dodd admits that yes, yes, he did support AIG bonus protections before he was against them: CNN isn't the only one he made the false claim to, according to a reader who phoned his office...

Kabuki Theater of Outrage, Act III. Unscrupulous borrower Sen. Chris Dodd struts on stage. Fox Business reporter Rich Edson turns on the spotlight: Need to make my airsickness bag triple-strength this morning. Update: David Freddoso has more... Here is the loophole, from the section of the stimulus package that deals with compensation rules for TARP... Read More
Excuses, excuses.
A follow-up to my earlier post about unscrupulous borrower Chris Dodd's announcement that he will be refinancing his sweetheart mortgages: It seems he compiled an "independent" report that -- surprise! -- absolves him of any wrongdoing. And in response to pressure that he release his financial records to the public, Sen. Dodd "released" about 100... Read More
Homewrecker.
Just flashed over the AP wire: Unscrupulous borrower Chris Dodd says he will refinance his sweetheart mortgages that are the subject of an ethics probe. All he has to do is say "sorry" and and everything will be forgiven. Maybe Obama should make him HUD Secretary now! (link) *** Related: Dodd sweetheart deals still under... Read More
It's back. I've been writing for nearly a year about the Democrats' attempts to allow bankruptcy judges to rewrite home loans and and radically expand government’s role in meddling with private contracts. They tried to attach it to last year's stimulus. And now, they're poised to attach it to Obama's Generational Theft Act of 2009.... Read More
Craptastic.
I'm trying to stomach the Senate floor "debate" on the trillion-dollar-plus Crap Sandwich -- which isn't a debate at all. Let me boil it down for you so far: Over the past 45 minutes, I've watched GOP Senator after GOP Senator heaping praise on Chris Dodd for his "leadership." Unscrupulous borrower Dodd has now taken...
