How Democrats use dark money — and win elections
« on: February 20, 2018, 03:42:57 AM »


snip~
WASHINGTON — Democrats love decrying "dark money" — political contributions for which the source of funds is a mystery. But that isn't stopping them from accepting "dark money" themselves or making it difficult to determine the original underwriter of a political donation, as a recent Southern contest vividly illustrates.


snip~
Senate Majority PAC's biggest donations come from a handful of active billionaires: Newsweb Corp.'s Fred Eychaner with $2 million, Paloma Partners' Donald Sussman with $1.5 million and billionaire businessman George Soros with $1 million. The super PAC's donor list also includes pages and pages of comparatively small donations, and it boasts of how unambiguous its operations are.

A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

Remember Chinagate?


Groundhog Day: Democrats Must Make Sure Russia-Gate Isn’t Like 1996’s ‘China-Gate’

" Name a successful president who takes campaign assistance from a “frenemy” of the United States, pretends not to know what his vice president does and does not know, and radically alters foreign policy toward the nation that helped him get into the White House."

" Raise your hand if you thought of Bill Clinton. "

DEMS win elections because they work harder than the PUBBIES when they see an opportunity. They use VOTER FRAUD to the MAX. They work with the RINOGOPe if a conservative is the opposition. REMEMBER TRUMP STOPPED the Voter Fraud committee he set up??? WHY??? Dark Money , Light MONEY does not matter. The DEMS play for Keeps the PUBBIES like to participate and not Govern just go along and complain as the minority. No better example than what we are living today. The PUBBIES have the House, Senate and WH and the DEMS still rule the AGENDA and call the shots.

Your reply reminds me of that old oxymoron  "legal ethics" and the old joke "What do you call 500 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? " Answer: "A good start"..or "Why do lawyers all wear neckties?" Answer: "to keep their foreskin from coming up over their head".

There actually are some very talented, ethical, honest lawyers...and then their are the Shysters.  The Democrats are all Shysters!  This includes the actually lawyers in their group and those lawmakers and commentators who pretend to know something about the law.
Many of them are very talented, one might go as far as saying "gifted" con Artists!

BTW, we have some of these Shysters in our party too.  We call them RINOS!  :lol:
