Pitching Wu from Congress

By Jerry A. Kane

Democrat Congressman David Wu will resign amidst a young woman’s allegations of his aggressive, unwanted sexual behavior last year.

Reporters could not verify the young woman’s age. Notes on Facebook over the past 18 months indicate she graduated from high school in 2010. California records show she registered to vote in August.

Oregon Democrat senators, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, informed Wu that they were going to call for his resignation if he did not step down.

During Wu’s re-election campaign last year, staff members said the congressman behaved so erratically that they stopped scheduling public appearances for him and ran campaign ads instead.

Shortly before the November 2 election, Wu’s campaign office was shut down and campaign workers sent home.  But Oregonians methodically re-elected him in spite of his obvious mental problems.

“This is way beyond acceptable levels and the charade needs to end NOW. No enabling by any potential enablers, he needs help and you need to be protected. Nothing else matters right now. Nothing else.”

Voters did the same thing in 2004 when the story broke that Wu had tried to force an ex-girlfriend into having sex while he was a student at Stanford University. Oregonians re-elected him then too in spite of his “inexcusable behavior.”

“As a 21-year-old, I hurt someone I cared very much about. I take full responsibility for my actions and I am very sorry. This single event forever changed my life and the person that I have become.—Dave Wu, Oregon congressman

Wu and his wife are getting a divorce. He said he sought counseling and is taking medication for an unspecified mental condition.

Here’s a thought: David Wu should move to New York and run for Anthony Weiner’s old seat in the 9th Congressional District, and Weiner should move to Oregon and run for Wu’s 1st Congressional District seat. The dip-shit Democrat voters in both districts are sure to elect them.

Ohio voters have been given the opportunity to vote on whether or not the state will participate in ObamaCare, i.e., the Affordable Care Act. A coalition of tea party, small government, and religious groups gathered enough valid signatures to put the constitutional amendment on the November 8 ballot to opt out of the federal health care program.

The measure would change Ohio’s Constitution to prohibit any federal, state or local law from forcing Ohio residents, employers or health care providers to participate in a health care system. It also would prevent the state from enacting a Massachusetts-style health care program, where the state requires a minimum level of insurance coverage.

It’s now being reported that Yoko Ono, wife of John Lennon, has been covering up that the former Beatle had undergone a political and religious change of heart a few years before he was murdered/assassinated December 10, 1980.

“[H]e baffled those close to him by constantly praising ‘the Lord,’ writing Christian songs with titles like ‘Talking with Jesus’ and ‘Amen’ (the Lord’s Prayer set to music), and trying to convert nonbelievers. He also called the prayer line of ‘The 700 Club,’ Pat Robertson’s program.”

Lennon also said that if he were an American he would vote for Reagan, having soured on Jimmy Carter.

“He did express support for Reagan, which shocked me….I also saw John embark in some really brutal arguments with my uncle, who’s an old-time communist… He enjoyed really provoking my uncle… Maybe he was being provocative… but it was pretty obvious to me he had moved away from his earlier radicalism…He was a very different person back in 1979 and ’80 than he’d been when he wrote ‘Imagine.’ By 1979 he looked back on that guy and was embarrassed by that guy’s naivete.”

A Bossier City, Louisiana, family is being sued by the Gardens of Southgate homeowners association for displaying a multicolored banner supporting their son’s Marine Corps service in Afghanistan. Timothy and Jodi Burr’s sign has a picture of their 20-year-old son along with the words “Our son defends our freedom.”

Although signs supporting schools or teams can be seen throughout the neighborhood, the Bossier City HOA determined the Burr’s sign violated subdivision covenants.

The Burrs filed an official response to the suit, arguing that the HOA has abandoned the covenant restrictions on signs by not fully enforcing them, and that the forced removal of their sign violates their freedom of expression guaranteed by both state and U.S. constitutions.

The Burr’s have vowed to fight the suit and do not intend to remove the sign.

Campus Crusade for Christ, a prominent Christian ministry, will remove Christ from its name, having found that 9 percent of Christians and 20 percent of non-Christians felt alienated by the name.

“Our name was becoming more and more of a hindrance. … We felt like our name was getting in the way of accomplishing our mission … [which is committed to] proclaiming Christ around the world.”

Early next year, Campus Crusade for Christ International will change the name of its U.S. Operations to “Cru.”

The left’s modus operandi (m.o.) has been to use a horrific tragedy to smear the opposition for political gain. And now it looks like they’re using the Norway attacks to smear Christians and conservatives as terrorists.  

The alternative media are reporting that the words “Christian” and “Conservative” were added to Anders Behring Breivik Facebook page after the Norwegian mass murderer had been in custody.  

So who tampered with the murderer’s Facebook page and why? And why did the jihadist group “Helpers of Global Jihad” initially claim responsibility for the Oslo bombing and youth camp massacre then later retract the claim?

Inquiring minds want to know.
