As a rule anything that Don Surber writes interests me but this piece concerning Senator Robert Menendez and underage hookers…

Democratic Senator Robert Menendez is on trial for taking bribes from a Florida eye doctor, who committed $105 million in Medicare fraud.

Among the payoffs to Menendez were trips to the Dominican Republic, where he may have slept with underage hookers, federal prosecutors said.

I am not saying he is guilty, but he is a supporter of Hillary — just as perverts like Bil Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, and Tony Weiner are.

…brought back a few memories.

It reminded me of this piece at DaTechGuy blog in 2012:

Any person who thinks democrat women who still kneel and worship at the altar of Bill Clinton are going to care about Bob Menendez paying for sex from women in the Dominican Republic has not paid attention to the Democrat party and where they have gone in the last 15 years.

I have no doubt as long as Mendenez votes the way Ms. Ledbetter and the media wants she and they will have absolutely no problem with any thing he does with any woman.

And this one from January 2013

I suspect this was the strategy of Senator Robert Melendez as he appeared on ABC’s THIS WEEK two days after news of the FBI investigation of a sexual scandal involving underage Dominican Hookers broke.

Alas for the Senator ABC News’ Martha  Raddatz totally foiled that strategy by cleverly choosing to refuse to ask a single question on the subject 

oh and this one also from Jan 2013

The senator’s alleged underpayment of these young ladies apparently was an effort to limit the degree of their victimhood.

Furthermore his continued silence on the matter in the face of a FBI investigation is clearly an effort by the senator to keep the embarrassment of these young ladies victim status away from the national press

and this from March of the same year:

CNN in fact didn’t touch the story until they could spend twenty minutes attacking it. At the Washington Post the Sunday of CPAC a long story defending Menendez appeared. The very suggestion that these outlets would be part of a conspiracy to frame Menendez when they’ve done their best to ignore the guilty pleas in New Jersey concerning dirty money is so laughable it’s a wonder anyone would make them.

Or rather it would be laughable to anyone who knows how US media is.

Plus one from 2015 noting why Menendez was suddenly of interest to a Democrat partisan “Justice” department

Menendez was defending Israel and expressing suspicion of Iran long before this month.  The Kirk Menendez Amendment putting sanctions on Iran dates from 2011 Why were his speeches and critiques not enough to cause a break?

That’s actually easy. He wasn’t expendable then.

Before Barack Obama’s re-election in 2012 a high profile hispanic was vital. Before the 2014 with the prospect of control of the senate hanging by a single seat, every person with a “D” next to their name was vital.

And even a few weeks ago with the first test of the Democrats ability to shake down Mitch McConnell & John Boehner it was vital to make sure there was party unity.

But now that all the elections are over, now that the amnesty money is secure and now that the Democrat party knows that 41 united democrats can bend Republican leaders like a yoga instructor Robert Menendez becomes expendable.

And this final retrospective piece from 2015 noting Stacy McCain’s coverage

While some like Robert Stacy McCain covered the scandal in some depth, it being 2013 a year the democrats still hoped to keep the Senate Gavel in Harry Reid’s hands and Martha Raddatz being Martha Raddatz didn’t find the War on underage Women theme newsworthy enough to ask Senator Menendez about it:

and drawing this conclusion:

The Mainstream media first priority is, and will always be serving the needs of the Obama administration in particular and the Democrat party in general.  No story from the Planned parenthood protests to crime involving people with the wrong perp victim racial or religious mix is going to be considered national news if it contrary to any liberal meme.

Or put let’s put it another way.  If Robert Menendez had been a Republican when this story broke in 2012 the media and the left would have forced his resignation the fact that five years later a solid newsman like Don Surber is still writing about this story concerning Menendez as a sitting senator tells you that just because the left is running from Harvey Weinstein the protect Democrats at all costs meme is still going strong.

A Bronx Tale 1993

This morning as I’m preparing for a day long class concerning Simion before the 15 hour drive back to Massachusetts from Charlotte I noted this headline at Twitchy:

David Axelrod caught emailing Hillary Clinton at personal address he knew nothing about

The Gist of the story is that Axelrod specifically denied knowing about the email server to wit

Now the GOP is right to point out this but it’s necessary to explain something to the people who are saying Ah HA! today.

This is unlikely to change a single Democrat voter nor cause any of those who have Axelrod on their shows to stop having him on as an expert.

One must remember that our friends on the left consider the moral code as an item of convenience to be put, taken off or completely discarded if it is to the advantage of their ends.

Thus to a David Axelrod lying to the general public on a national TV network of whatever audience size is no more incorrect than Calogero lying to his father there, he took a shot.

But more importantly culturally the Democrat party has reached the point where such a violation of the moral code is irrelevant. Lying to advance the election of Democrats in general and Hillary Clinton in particular is, as far as their utilitarian code is concerned. The only violation of that code that Axelrod has committed is getting caught which might have an effect on those few independents who still cling to the idea of an objective standard of right and wrong.

Nor should you expect the Democrats with bylines that inhabit the media to cause Mr. Axelrod to pay a penalty for his mendacity. As long as he is useful they will pretend his credibility is intact.

So by all means guys, let’s point out that no word from David Axelrod is to be taken at face value (even as the media pretends otherwise) but don’t get your hopes up that it will change Democrat minds. Those were closed to the moral code a generation ago.

Why do you think I left?
