House Votes to Censure Charlie Rangel (D-NY) and Democrats Give Standing Ovation


Lame Duck House, Drain the Swamp Edition:

Yesterday the US House of Representatives voted 333 to 79 in favor of censure of ethically challenged Charles Rangel (D-NY). As Rangel begged his colleagues for a lesser punishment, the House voted for censure of the 80 year old Rangel as he was found guilty of broken 11 different ethics violations. Rangel later defiantly responded to his censure by stated the following, “I know in my heart I’m going to be judged not by this Congress but by my life, my activities, my contributions to society.” Actually Charlie, there is only One who judges you and he can see through all your BS. Because those in charge of writing tax law have no idea how to follow them, eh?

Who Me?

In a rare ritual of public humiliation, House lawmakers Thursday will begin considering censure of Rep. Charles Rangel, a legendary New York politician found to have broken 11 different ethics rules.

The 80-year-old Harlem Democrat was found to have misused congressional perks, failed to pay taxes on some income for 17 years, failed to report assets properly for a decade, and misused a rent-stabilized apartment as a campaign office.

Thursday’s scheduled vote would cap an ethics probe that has gone on for more than two years. The saga has already cost Rangel his chairmanship of the powerful tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, as well as more than $2 million in legal fees. Aides say Rangel has also paid all the back taxes owed.

Black Caucus whips for Charlie Rangel reprimand.

The Congressional Black Caucus snapped into action in defense of Charles Rangel Thursday as the House prepared to censure him for 11 ethics violations.

 How out of touch are Democrats with WE THE PEOPLE and their frustration of corruption of politicians. We need to look no further than the video via the Gateway Pundit, Democrats give Charlie Rangel a standing ovation after this corrupt political dirt bag and tax cheat was censured. UNREAL.

Rangel was in a position of power and authority and he abused his powers. Take you lumps like a man Charlie, shut up and retire. Give me a break sir, you were the Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee that wrote tax law.

      A standing ovation is no surpise. They’re all buddies, hanging out in the same pit.

      It would not have mattered whether he was black or white — Democrats always support their scoundrels while Republicans throw theirs to the wolves.

      Shoot, the money I’ve paid in taxes in my life time? I would have liked to pretend I didn’t have stuff to declare and pay taxes for too. Maybe the rest of those things he did were just arrogant, like using the stationary and rent controlled property used as he did. But the tax stuff, yep, I would call that corrupt. He knew. He did it anyway. Mistakes, yeah sure. Corrupt ones. The sad thing to me, his military service was amazing. He should have continued to live his life under those standards.

      Just another carpet bagger…

      Those who stood are probably doing the same things; its all corrupt – a system of dishonest good-ole-boys scatching each other’s backs while they squeeze the working man.

      When they stand and applaud this represents “it’s okay Charlie, no problem, no harm”.

      Ovation is clearly a signal that there are no longer any standards, morals, ethical values in Congress.

      Remember when Jesse Jackson got the you girl pregnant, out of wedlock and whilst married which is adultery and Jackson is a “preacher”, the blacks all rallied behind him stating “no problem Jesse, rock on”.

      If Rangel were of the character he emotionally tried to express, he’d resign. If he were an upstanding man, of ethical standing, and wanted what’s best for the Congress and the American people, he’d resign.

      Remember too, blacks are the ones in his district and that alone is why he got re-elected.

      What in the hell is he doing working at 80 years of age? Easy, $$$$$$$$$ and power.
