Interesting perspective on violence and law from an Assistant Attorney General
Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) is holding hearings in the US Senate Judiciary committee to highlight the imagined threat of “Muslim intolerance.” No, it’s not intolerance BY Muslims, which I guess by now is so commonplace we don’t need to waste congressional time discussing the phenomenon. It’s actually intolerance OF Muslims, which is so widespread that hate crimes against Jews are only 8 times more frequent | Read More »
Majority/Minority Leader Schumer?
Now let’s not count our chickens before they hatch, but it seems as if Nevada is moving toward Sharon Angle heading into the weekend. If as we all hope, Harry Reid is defeated on Tuesday several dominos are going to begin to fall. First, the Senate will probably be tilting in the 49-51 range and overall control may be up for grabs with West Virginia | Read More »
Giannoulias/Durbin/Davis = Don’t Let The Law Get In Your Way
Picture this scene… If the special election “costs taxpayers a dime, it’s probably a waste of money,” added Giannoulias, flanked by fellow Illinois Democrats U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and U.S. Rep. Danny Davis at a campaign news conference on Chicago’s West Side to talk about jobs. Giannoulias made this statement despite a federal judge ruling that then Gov. Blago’s appointment of Roland Burris was illegal | Read More »

Lieberman, Snowe, Nelson, Webb – Let Them Hear It From You!
Senator John McCain stated last week that he had no idea what was in the back-room deal sent to the Congressional Budget Office for evaluation by Harry Reid. Dick Durbin, the number two Democrat in the Senate, told Senator McCain he didn’t either. That ‘deal’ fell by the wayside, as Senator Joe Lieberman flatly stated he would join the Republicans in opposing any bill that | Read More »
Yet another Democratic “coincidence” – Dick Durbin’s dough
The Chicago Sun-Times recently reported that the powerful Democratic dirtbag just happened to unload a bunch of stock right after meeting with Paulson and Bernanke and right before the value dropped by >20%. But of course nothing illegal or unethical was involved, since we know that the Democrats have the most ethical and most transparent Congressional delegation ever.

Senator Durbin, why do you want to throw these kids out of their schools?
Senator Durbin (D-IL) abandons Senator Burris (D-IL).
Abandons him quite comprehensively, in fact: WASHINGTON–Embattled Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.) is cancelling his Thursday schedule, where he was to have met with Rockford area civic, elected and religious leaders as Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) sent out a very frosty statement, saying Burris failed to disclose under oath the nature of his relationship with former Gov. Blagojevich.
Picking a Political Scab for Their Own Benefit
I can only assign political motive for the Governor and our Senior Senator Dick Durbin for saying that George Ryan should be let out of prison early. It is quite clear that they would be more than happy to open up a new set of headlines to remind votes in Illinois of the corrupt deeds that the vile "Republican" Govenor Ryan was involved in.

Wanted: A Do Nothing Congress
The news for those of us pushing for more American energy exploration gets better and better. Senator Dick Durbin tells The Hill * newspaper that Democrats might not be able to continue the nearly 30-year-old moratorium on oil and gas exploration off the Outer Continental Shelf and in the oil-shale fields of the West. The ban is set to expire on October 1. Reports *The | Read More »
