The Obampire strikes back

Sen. Bob Menendez is going to be charged with “corruption.”

Embattled Sen. Robert Menendez is unlikely to resign his Senate seat amid looming criminal corruption charges that he allegedly used his office to benefit a well-heeled donor, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Instead, Menendez, who has survived past scrutiny by federal prosecutors over his actions for years, plans to fight the Justice Department and clear his name, sources said. At a press conference in Newark on Friday evening, he said that he has broken no laws and made no mention of plans to step down.

“Let me be very clear, very clear. I have always conducted myself appropriately and in accordance with the law,” Menendez said. “I am not going anywhere.”

It remains to be seen whether Menendez can hang onto his spot as ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee once corruption charges are filed. Two other senators in recent years, the late Ted Stevens of Alaska and John Ensign of Nevada, each stepped aside from leadership posts as they faced scrutiny over their actions in public office. And Menendez as well as Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) are likely to face heightened pressure after the Justice Department unveils the charges.

Menendez has been the most vocal democrat critic of Obama foreign policy:

While the federal investigation has been ongoing, the timing of the charges is curious. Menendez has been one of the top Democratic critics in Congress of the Obama administration’s negotiations and forthcoming deal with Iran over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear ambitions. Earlier this year, the New Jersey Democrat said the White House’s talking points on the Iran deal were “straight out of Tehran.”

Menendez also hammered Obama’s Cuba policy:

Sen. Robert Menendez (N.J.), the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is slamming President Obama over the deal to release an American held in Cuba.

“President Obama’s actions have vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government,” Menendez, known for his tough stance on Cuba, said in a statement.

“There is no equivalence between an international aid worker and convicted spies who were found guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage against our nation.”

Hillary fired an ambassador for using a private email account while herself using a private email account for four years. Somehow the White House didn’t notice and so far she is escaping accountability.

Too late Menendez learns the power of the dark side. The Obama Death Star is fully operational.

    What’s really interesting about this is that the charges he is being hit with appear to be the same allegations brought against him 10 or 11 years ago when I still lived in Jersey. And they sat on this until now? Like I’ve said a million times. once any slime ball wanna be dictator feels anyone has outlived their usefulness, they will attack. Menendez opposes Ayatolla Obama as to the Iran deal that will put Israel and others in the cros shairs of nukes so Menendez must pay. How sad Democrats and for that matter the scum rinos don’t show the backbone that Menendez (not something he has done that often mind you) is showing, not only in this case but in standing up to this despot in the White House.

    I don’t understand why this is a surprise to anyone. Obama has used the same tactic for years; he used it against Ryan in his run for a seat in the Illinois State House, against Petreaus and against many other high ranking military people who spoke out against the Obama agenda. It doesn’t matter in Menendez was actually wrong or not, all that matters is he spoke out against Obama.
    At some point, Obama supporters are all going to learn that they will only be held in favor until their usefulness expires, then they too will get kicked to the curb in the hardest and most public fashion.

    Bill and Hillary supposedly had files on over 200 potential ”enemies.”
    Obama, through the NSA has access to dirt on EVERYONE.
    Remember, according to legal experts, we all commit approximately 14 felonies a day.
    Remember, also, Obama’s IRS has been caught sending email memos telling IRS workers to always have an independent source that is a legal cause for investigating anyone they target…..relying only on illegal sources, such as NSA capturing of phone records, will not do.

    Obama can mine NSA’s data collections for anything and everything.
    Did a nasty web ad get clicked on by someone’s home computer’s users?
    Did people of the opposite sex call/email/text one another a lot (while being married to others?)
    Who did you give money to for campaigns?
    Travel records?
    Guilt-by-associations?

    Sen. Menendez is no saint, but who is?
    Obama is no saint but was able to reward his secret records’ gatekeeper with a seat on SCOTUS.

    If you have donors willing to reward third world teenage hookers enough to retire, there is no need to worry about prosecution. This is the secret of Elite lechers: chase the underage hookers in the third world and you can pay them to disappear and forget about the libidos of American politicians.

    Obama’s charges of corruption are more difficult. He is a mean vindictive little prick and if you cause him grief, he will use federal justice to hound you to Hell.

    Of course, if Menendez would be a supporter of whatever stupid policy Obama wants to pursue, he goes unchallenged. As it is, he can be looking for the IRS next.

    While I am sure that Belafonte and Robinson did some work in bringing African students to the usa the Joseph P Kennedy Foundation chartered 4 planes to bring about 370 African students to the usa in 1959 and 1960 from Kenya I am pretty sure that one of these on what was described as an “air lift”was Obama’s dad This program was probably in response to Moscow’s Patrice Lamumba University

    You might try a Google of African college students in the 1950s
    Orr
    American scholarship programs for African students 1959-1975
    The University of Zimbabwe seems to have the most complete paper on it please let me know if you find a better on contradictory cite
    I will continue to look for additional congressional Kennedy support for this program but I am quite sure that as a senator Kennedy would have tried to provide any needed assistance in visa regs
    Actually I would not have expected you to either know or fact check anything showing the Kennedy connection to Obama’s dad

    The first 81 students from Kenya arrived in 1959 not 1960
    The second batch of 270 arrived in 1960 from Kenya
    My Google cite on this is
    Archive.libmsu.edu
    American scholarship programs for African students 1959-1975
    The J. P. Kennedy Foundation was the larger financial backer
    And to think we owe him , that right wing conservative for the conception of Obama ! Strange our fate and destiny work

    @Enchanted: actually your memory is quite faulty
    About 7 days before the election that was reported but it turned out to be a total sleaze slime ball
    The teen hookers who were videoed reading the script that was written for them had never met nor heard of Menendez and were paid by a known Gop operative
    You really should try to come out of the Rush bubble

    @John:

    the Kennedy connection to Obama’s dad

    When did it get established who Obama’s dad is? If he came over in 1959 it is not as action that President Kennedy took after becoming President.
