  1. Weird. Duke and Progress pen a deal today and a politically-connected Progress lobbyist dies in a burning car.

  4. Now this gets interesting, because Rosa DeLauro owned the house in which Rahm Emanuel lived rent-free during House sessions for five years. Word from DC is that the place was wired for audio and video. Ashley Turton, as DeLauro's chief of staff, probably wrote the checks to pay bills on that condo and would be privy to "extra" expenses.

  5. USA is the worlds mafiaJanuary 10, 2011 at 9:02 PM

    wow...they're dropping like flies. The US mafia is at work. Its no wonder the Congress critters do what they are told and ignore the american people. Well they say that a fire is the best deterrent to recovering evidence. But I let my imagination run away from me...I'm sure it was merely an accident

    It would seem that the body of the Senior Chief of Staff in Arizona...the state senate, Gifford, the judge, Wheeler and this guy are apart of a larger Obama/ Israeli assassination program that is killing people around world with information dangerous to the cabal that is running Washington now...

  9. I wonder if Gaki and TimBuck2 are really qualified to make mental health assessments over the internet by examining comments. For some reason, I doubt it... Which makes me question their motivation
