Can we put our faith and belief into Maine’s Senators Susan Collins and Angus King’s Pursuits?

PPH reports “Maine senators seek help against heroin epidemic on two fronts.”

“U.S. Sens. Susan Collins and Angus King brought Maine’s heroin problem to Capitol Hill this week, looking to bolster both the military’s efforts to stem the supply of the drug and treatment professionals’ work to curb demand.

King on Wednesday raised the issue at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, pressing the admiral nominated to lead the armed forces of the U.S. Southern Command about what more the military might do to stop importation of the deadly drug.

Collins on Tuesday asked a panel of treatment experts what more the federal government could do to bring together law enforcement and treatment options along the lines of Scarborough’s Operation HOPE or Project Save ME in Oxford County, in which users can turn themselves in without fear of arrest and police and their partners will try to locate drug treatment for them.

Collins, a member of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, requested the hearing on opioid abuse in America to raise awareness among fellow legislators about the issue and possible solutions.

“There is increasing interest on Capitol Hill on really tackling this problem because more and more senators are hearing from law enforcement in particular from their states that they can’t solve this problem by just arresting all the people who are using drugs,” Collins said Friday in a statement. “There needs to be a more coordinated approach to the issue.”

Like many other rural states, heroin addiction is surging in Maine.

Is this another “looks good-feels good” to the public?

Former Governor Angus was hand-delivered this video. He did nothing!

The assistance of Senator Susan Collins was sought in obtaining a full investigation into criminal activity. She did nothing!

U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy’s Opening Statement At Judiciary Committee Hearing On Sanctuary Cities

U.S. Congressman Trey Gowdy.

Just in…
The Hill reports “House votes to punish sanctuary cities. House Republicans passed legislation on Thursday that would deny federal funds to sanctuary cities.

The bill, passed 241-179, would withhold certain federal law enforcement grants to cities that have policies designed to shelter illegal immigrants from deportation.

Sanctuary cities have come under heavy scrutiny in the wake of Kathryn Steinle’s death on July 1 in San Francisco. Authorities charge that the killing was carried out by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal immigrant with a history of felony convictions who had been deported five times.

Critics of the sanctuary laws say such policies encourage people to immigrate to the U.S. illegally at the expense of citizens.

“A refuge for whom? A sanctuary for whom?” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) asked. “A sanctuary for Kate Steinle? Or a refuge for a convicted felon with a 25-year-long criminal history?”’ Read more HERE.

The Truth Gets Out On Former Speaker Dennis Hastert…DOJ Indictment

Chicago Business reports “In a stunning development, former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert today was indicted on federal financial misconduct and perjury charges.
A federal indictment released this afternoon accuses the Plano Republican of disguising the withdrawal of nearly $1 million from various financial accounts to avoid federal disclosure requirements, and of lying to the FBI about the matter.

The federal charges allege that the money was part of $3.5 million that Hastert was paying an unnamed “Individual A” in order “to compensate for and conceal his prior misconduct” against that individual.

If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count. Read more HERE.

The Hill also reports “Former Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) has resigned from his position as a lobbyist at law and lobby firm Dickstein Shapiro following a federal indictment released Thursday, according to a firm spokesman.” Read more HERE.

Here’s another example of an elected official portraying someone he is not. It took awhile, but the truth has come forward about Dennis Hastert.

New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s Aide Arrested In Prostitution Sting

PPH reports “David Wihby, state director for New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte, has resigned after he was one of 10 men arrested last week in a prostitution sting in Nashua, officials said.

Ayotte released a statement late Saturday saying she was shocked at the arrest of a man she described as “a friend for many years.”

“David obviously cannot continue his duties, and I have accepted his resignation,” Ayotte said. “This is a very difficult time, and my thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved.”’ Read more HERE.

WMUR NEWS, click here.

David Wihby “cannot continue his duties” because he got caught. Senator Ayotte, former N.H. Attorney General, known for her political maneuvers, is not a sleeper when it comes to corruption. During her tenure as Attorney General, Kelly Ayotte brushed under the rug evidence of official corruption and cover up by Farmington Police Chief Scott Roberge and officers Scott Ferguson and Kevin Willey. When will she be held accountable? Is it likely with her friends in high places? Do you realize just how deep the corruption goes?

This is “whitewash”! Where does the buck stop? Is this…you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours?

When lawmakers become lawbreakers isn’t it time to speak up?

Is there an investigative journalist out there who has the guts to unmask the politicians who claim they are working for the people?

Senator John McCain Calls Code Pink Protesters ‘scum,’ tells them to ‘shut up’

“U.S. Senator John McCain had a blunt message for demonstrators chanting for the arrest of Henry Kissinger at a Senate Armed Forces Committee hearing on Thursday: “Get out of here, you low-life-scum.”

Members of the group held up handcuffs and anti-Kissinger signs and called for his arrest for “war crimes.”The protesters, from the Code Pink anti-war group, drew the ire of the Arizona Republican who chairs the committee after some of them approached Kissinger as he took his seat at a hearing on global security.

Addressing the hearing, McCain said: “I have been a member of this committee for many years and I have never seen anything as disgraceful and outrageous and despicable as the last demonstration that just took place.”

McCain said he would have Capitol Police arrest the protesters if they did not “shut up.” He then told them: “Get out of here, you low-life scum.”

Will Obama Resign January 1, 2015 Amid New Benghazi Revelations?

“”According to several senior-ranking White House officials, President Barack Obama will resign from office on January 1st 2015, after learning that a so-called “Smoking Gun” story regarding the Benghazi scandal will soon be revealed. Those sources claim Obama will announce his resignation shortly after the midterm elections in November.”

“The decision to resign came after reporters from Fox News were allegedly contacted in August by a survivor of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, who came forward with shocking video evidence that Obama, then- White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew, and then- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew that an attack on the US diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya was “imminent,” and intentionally ordered key security personnel to leave the facility and travel eight blocks away.”

“Sources at Fox News say that the unidentified survivor allegedly recorded a video teleconference on his cell phone in which Lew gave the orders, while Obama and Clinton watched on.”

“The sources at Fox say the network was prepared to air the video on August 23rd, but House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) convinced them to hold off on releasing the footage. White House sources say two unidentified reporters from Fox News joined Issa in a private meeting with Obama this past weekend, on August 30th, and agreed to not reveal the video if Obama agreed to resign. White House senior staff negotiated with Issa and the reporters so Obama could stay in office until the end of the year, and that he would announce the resignation in November, shortly after the midterms. Why they agreed to those terms is unclear.”

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) Back On Michigan Ballot

“A federal judge in Michigan on Friday ordered Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) to be placed back on the state’s Democratic primary ballot.

The ruling reverses decisions by the secretary of State and a county clerk that made it appear likely that Conyers, one of the longest serving House members, would have to mount a write-in campaign.

U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Leitman ordered a preliminary injunction forcing the Wayne County election commission to place the longtime congressman back on the August ballot and have the secretary of state and the county clerk issue any necessary certification by next Thursday.”

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) Fails To Qualify For Primary Ballot

The Hill reports “Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) won’t appear on the Democratic primary ballot after failing to submit enough valid signatures, Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett said on Tuesday.

“It is my determination that in accordance with the current laws and statutes of the State of Michigan, the nominating petitions filed by Congressman John Conyers, Jr. are insufficient to allow his name to appear on the August 5, 2014 Primary Ballot,” Garrett said in a statement.

The decision means Conyers may have to run as a write-in candidate if he wants to keep a seat he’s held for five decades.” Read more HERE.

On March 26, 2007, Due Process Defenders, a group comprised of multiple organizations across this nation, working in tandem to address the overwhelming of ongoing judicial misconduct and political corruption, delivered to Congressman John Conyers and Senator Patrick Leahy, more than 1500 pages of evidence involving criminal acts by “officers of the court’ or government officials. This was totally ignored!

It appears the people of Michigan have had enough of him too!

Thank you Michigan!
