Carmen Kelly’s oldest child, a 19-year-old autistic son, is safe with relatives, Ray Kelly said. Carmen Kelly also has two daughters, ages 17 and 14, along with a son in his early teens and a 4-year-old boy. Ray Kelly had not been told which of the children had been killed.

Sex Scandal: Dominican Prostitute Says Sen. Bob Menendez ‘likes the youngest and newest girls’ … Did Menendez Break the Very Law (Protect Act) That He Voted For?
It had been previously reported that the FBI was investigating New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez. The 59 year old Democrat US Senator has been connected with long time Menendez campaign donor Dr. Salomon Melgen for accepting expense paid trips to the Dominican Republic. Such gifts are against the law and go against campaign-finance laws. Menendez paid the money back some two years later after the situation came to light. However, the story scandal does not stop there. Dr. Salomon Melgen is also being investigated for organizing sex parties where New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez is accused of having sex wit underage female prostitutes. According to am email from the female prostitute released by CREW via the Daily Caller, Bob Menendez ‘likes the youngest and newest girls’.
In a little-noticed email published online Wednesday by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a young Dominican woman wrote nine months ago that she slept with 59-year-old New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez at a series of sex parties organized by Dr. Salomon Melgen, a longtime Menendez campaign donor.
“That senator also likes the youngest and newest girls,” the woman wrote on April 21, 2012, according to an English translation provided to The Daily Caller by a native Spanish speaker.
“In the beginning he seemed so serious, because he never spoke to anyone, but he is just like the others and has just about the same tastes as the doctor, very refined. I think they were taking us more often to get us checked [medically] because of him.”
See the email HERE.
More from The Daily Caller:
Her account of the sex parties Menendez allegedly attended in the Dominican Republic is the most detailed to surface since TheDC first began reporting on the story in November.
She told her story to a tipster who forwarded the email to CREW; it was not included with the cache of documents he published online on Jan. 24. TheDC was first to report on that dossier about Sen. Menendez, which included an interview transcript in which a different women claimed she was 16 when she began sleeping with him.
That young prostitute said she had sex with Menendez “three times at least” in 2009. “The first one in February, and then in May and June. I recall his visit in June so well because that month was my 17th birthday.”
Senator Bob Menendez has denied the allegations. However, if convicted Menendez could face 30 years in prison. The irony is that Menendez could have broke the “Protect Act,” otherwise known as the “Prosecutorial Remedies and Other Tools to end the Exploitation of Children Today” that he voted for when he was a member of the US House of Representatives.
If Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey is found guilty of traveling to the Dominican Republic to engage in sexual intercourse with underage prostitutes, he could face up to 30 years prison. The appropriate law, which would seem to apply in this instance, is the Prosecutorial Remedies And Other Tools To End The Exploitation Of Children Today (or the Protect Act).
Benghazigate: GOP Senators Ayotte, McCain and Graham More Troubled After Their Meeting Ambassador Rice Than Before
Ayotte, McCain and Graham remain more disturbed and troubled …
US Senators Kelly Ayotte (NH-R), John McCain (AZ-R) and Lindsey Graham (SC-R) met with UN Ambassador Susan Rice on Capitol Hill to discuss her misleading statements that she to the American public as she went on five Sunday morning talk shows following the Banghazi, Libya attacks and blamed them on a video tape rather than terrorism. However, instead of getting answers to the many questions as to why Rice would have mislead the public days after the attack when it was known that the attacks were a result of terrorism, Senators Ayotte, McCain and Graham were more troubled and disturbed by the answers they received than they were prior to the meeting (VIDEO). Sen Graham stated, ”The bottom line is that I’m more disturbed than I was before … about how four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya.” Senator John McCain said on Fox that he would be “very hard-pressed” to support Ms. Rice for Sec. of State.
After meeting with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on Tuesday, three GOP lawmakers said their concerns have only grown about misleading statements Rice made concerning the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead.
Rice’s meeting with Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte on Capitol Hill came as the White House signaled it may nominate Rice to replace Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of State.
VIDEO Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
“I’m more troubled today… It’s certainly clear from the beginning that we knew that those with ties to Al-Qaeda were involved in the attack on the embassy. And, clearly the impression that was given, the information given to the American people was wrong and in fact Ambassador Rice said today that Absolutely it was wrong… They have not cleared this up with the American people to date.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham voices his disapproval after meeting with Ambassador Rice
I’m more disturbed now than I was before that the 16 September explanation of how four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya by Ambassador Rice. If anybody had been looking at the threats coming out of Benghazi, Libya, it [would] jump out at you this was [an] Al-Qaeda storm in the making. I’m very disappointed in our intelligence community, they failed in many ways, but with a little bit of inquiry and curiosity I think it would be pretty clear that to explain this episode as related to a video that created a mob that turned into a riot was far afield.”
As reported at the Politico, UN Ambassador Rice stressed in a Tuesday statement that she did not intend to mislead the public about the September 11th attacks on the Benghazi consulate. BULL!!! Sorry, but with the information that was at hand and the fact that were know, one can draw no conclusion but her intention was to misinform the American public. The interviews that Rice went on happened days after the attack, she would have known and it is unconscionable that she would not have reviewed the classified information herself rather than just parroting the Obama company talking points.
So this is how the Obama administration is going to deal with a lie about the Benghazi cover up … with another lie?
America, do you care that four Americans were murdered by terrorists, a presidency has attempted to cover up what occurred and no one has been held accountable?
The picture is becoming very clear why Obama was all in with the blame VIDEO approach in Benghazi, it was one huge mess that would have overwhelmed the news cycle during his reelection campaign. But they would all have you believe it was a coincidence.
The NY Times is reporting that the FBI discovered and knew of CIA Director General David Petraeus extramarital affair with Paula Broadwell during the summer when they investigated threatening emails received by Jill Kelley; however, they never told anyone outside of the FBI or Justice Department. Also reported at the WSJ that high level officials at Justice knew. So Eric Holder never told Obama, eh? Folks if you believe that one I have a bridge to sell you. The FBI was looking at the CIA Director’s emails and no one knew this was going on?
Really. That is the story that the Obama administration will go with. It was just a coincidence that the FBI told the WH after the election and that Petraeus resigned after the election so not to harm Obama’s reelection chances. Of course it is also a coincidence that there has been no comments from Obama as to the Benghazi terror attacks and how a video tape was blamed when they knew it was terrorism. It was also a coincidence that an intel and terror guy like Petreaus also reiterated the false tape story under oath when he knew better. Yea, no conspiracy and cover up here. Was he being a team player or blackmailed?
High-level officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department were notified in the late summer that F.B.I. agents had uncovered what appeared to be an extramarital affair involving the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, David H. Petraeus, government officials said Sunday.
But law enforcement officials did not notify anyone outside the F.B.I. or the Justice Department until last week because the investigation was incomplete and initial concerns about possible security breaches, which would demand more immediate action, did not appear to be justified, the officials said.
The new accounts of the events that led to Mr. Petraeus’s sudden resignation on Friday shed light on the competing pressures facing F.B.I. agents who recognized the high stakes of any investigation involving the C.I.A. director but who were wary of exposing a private affair with no criminal or security implications. For the first time Sunday, the woman whose report of harassing e-mails led to the exposure of the affair was identified as Jill Kelley, 37, of Tampa, Fla.
More from the NRO:
The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have new stories out tonight about the scandal which led to David Petraeus’s resignation on Friday, both hitting on one interesting point: Petraeus’s affair was known at the top levels of the Justice Department months ago. The Times explains that “high-level officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department were notified in the late summer.” The Journal story goes further, saying that Eric Holder himself “knew about the email link to Mr. Petraeus as far back as late summer,” timing the NYT deliberately leaves unclear.
The FBI has released a revised sketch of the suspect in the death of Morgan Harrington. Two computerized sketches were released by the FBI on April 26 but were not widely publicized. The FBI noted on its April alert that the suspect may have altered his appearance. Morgan Harrington disappeared October 17, 2009, during a Metallica concert on the University of Virginia campus. Morgan’s body was found in January 2010 at a farm in Albemarle County.
Suspect sketch released by the FBI
A revised FBI sketch of the suspect in the killing of Morgan Harrington has been released, part of a revived effort to find the Virginia Tech student’s murderer nearly three years after her death.
Help Save the Next Girl, a victim’s rights group founded by Harrington’s parents, released the revised FBI sketch of an unidentified possible suspect — who has been linked to a 2005 sexual assault case in Fairfax City some two hours north.
Suspect Adam Mayes Added to FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitives List … Charged with Murder of Jo Ann Bain & Adrienne Bain … 12 year old Alexandria Bain & 8 Year Old Kyliyah Bain Still Missing
Charges escalate from “especially aggravated kidnapping” to “first degree murder” …
Suspect Adam Christopher Mayes, wanted in the disappearance and kidnapping of 12 year old Alexandria Bain and her 8 year old Kyliyah Bain has been added to the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted Fugitive List. The FBI has also added $100,000 to the reward fund offered for a break in the case. Adam Hayes has also just been charged with two counts of first degree murder in the death of Tennessee mom Jo Ann Bain and her 14 year old daughter Adrienne Bain. Adam’s wife, Teresa Mayes has also been charged with two counts of first degree murder. Previously, Teresa Mayes had been charged with especially aggravated kidnapping.
In an affidavit, Teresa Mayes said she was there when Adam Mayes killed Jo Ann Bain in a garage next to their home and that Adam Mayes also killed 14-year-old Adrienne Bain at that location.
Teresa Mayes also said her husband planned to kidnap Alexandria and Kyliyah.
Adam Mayes’ mother Mary is charged with four counts of Conspiracy To Commit Especially Aggravated Kidnapping.
The FBI added the suspect, Adam Mayes, to its list of 10 most wanted fugitives and added $100,000 to the reward fund offered for a break in the case. Mayes has been charged with killing Jo Ann Bain and her eldest daughter, Adrienne, in late April, but authorities believe he is still holding Bain’s younger daughters, 12-year-old Alexandria and 8-year-old Kyliyah.
“From an investigative standpoint, we keenly and firmly believe that Adam Mayes is out here somewhere with these two young children,” said Mark Gwyn, director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. “And it’s going to be up to the public to help us if we’re to bring these children back home and place him in custody where he needs to be.”
As stated at Blink on Crime, “Adam Mayes believes Alexandria and Kyliyah are HIS DAUGHTERS and they were set to move to Arizona.” This can explain why only the mother and eldest daughter were killed and the two youngest are still believed to be alive as per the FBI.
Mayes’ mother-in-law told The Associated Press that Mayes thought he might be the girls’ father and it caused trouble in the marriage to her daughter, who’s jailed in the case.
VIDEO interview below with the sister of Tersa Bain, Bobbi Booth, who spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday about Adam Mayes and his relationship with her sister, who she said has mental health problems.
“I’ve known Adam for at least 25 years, and he’s always been weird and unusual … but I never dreamed he would do something like this,” she said.
She described him as aggressive and not trustworthy. He beat and threatened to kill her sister, said Booth, who pleaded with him to “do the right thing.”

Truth in Advertising … Georgia Business Owner Posts Signs on Trucks, “New Company Policy: We are Not Hiring until Obama is Gone”
FINALLY THERE IS TRUTH IN ADVERTISING … BUSINESS NOT HIRING UNTIL OBAMA IS GONE ...
Bill Looman, a former US Marine and business owner in Georgia is saying exactly what so many other business owners are afraid to. Looman posted on his trucks the following new company policy, “We are Not Hiring until Obama is Gone”. What, a business owner has no faith in Obamanomics and that Barack Obama is not a job creator, say it isn’t co.
A west Georgia business owner is stirring up controversy with signs he posted on his company’s trucks, for all to see as the trucks roll up and down roads, highways and interstates:
“New Company Policy: We are not hiring until Obama is gone.”
“Can’t afford it,” explained the employer, Bill Looman, Tuesday evening. “I’ve got people that I want to hire now, but I just can’t afford it. And I don’t foresee that I’ll be able to afford it unless some things change in D.C.”
Looman’s company is U.S. Cranes, LLC. He said he put up the signs, and first posted pictures of the signs on his personal Facebook page, six months ago, and he said he received mostly positive reaction from people, “about 20-to-one positive.”
So what did Looman get for his efforts and a 20 to 1 positive reaction from Americans … a visit from the Secret Service of course. Can you imagine, an American uses their First Amendment Rights of Freedom of Speech and makes no threats what-so-ever and draws the attention of the FBI, Homeland Security and Secret Service. Only in America under this President. However, as Looman stated, his comments are not political, they are economical.
Looman made it clear, talking with 11Alive’s Jon Shirek, that he is not refusing to hire to make some political point; it’s that he doesn’t believe he can hire anyone, because of the economy. And he blames the Obama administration.
This is the underlying issues that is simmering beneath the surface for the 2012 elections. It is obvious that Obama has been a total and complete failure as President in dealing with the economy. Obama has made it about his liberal agenda, not the US economy. For that he will pay a dear political price, can you say one term “One”der.
26 Year Old Massachusetts Man, Rezwan Ferdaus Arrested for Terror Plot to Blow Up Capitol & Pentagon
A 26 year old Massachusetts nan, Rezwan Ferdaus, was arrested by the FBI in a terror plot to fly remote control airplanes loaded with C-4 into the Capitol and Pentagon. Ferdaus thought he was working with members of al Qaeda to obtain explosives; however, they were actually undercover FBI agents. Was Feradaus from Yemen, Saudi Arabia or Pakistan … nope, he was a US citizen and a home grown terrorist. Ferdaus was financially well off and educated at Northeastern University with a graduate with a degree in physics. He began planning to commit violent “jihad” against the US in early 2010.
Ferdaus allegedly gave the undercover FBI agents a detailed set of attack plans “with step-by-step instructions as to how he planned to attack the Pentagon and Capitol,” according to the Department of Justice.
The plans focused on the use of three small remote-controlled drone-like aircraft loaded with C-4 plastic explosives, which he planned to fly into the Capitol and the Pentagon using GPS equipment, according to the DOJ.
Loks like some one has been busy, busy , busy to inflict terrorism upon the USA.
For the past five months, Ferdaus has allegedly been stockpiling the equipment he needed for his proposed attack, including a remote-controlled aircraft, 25 pounds of fake C-4 explosives, six automatic AK-47 assault rifles and three grenades, according to the DOJ. He allegedly kept all of it in a storage facility in Massachusetts, where he was arrested.
Ferdaus was also charged with attempting to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization — al Qaeda — in order to carry out attacks on U.S. soldiers stationed overseas, federal authorities said.
Ferdaus allegedly modified eight cellphones to act as detonation devices for improvised explosive devices, and gave them to the FBI agents to be used against American soldiers in Iraq.
