The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money.

The Congressional Black Caucus: All They Need Are Rubber Noses, Floppy Shoes And Horns

From CIR and Floyd Reports:

The Congressional Black Caucus: all these clowns need are rubber noses, floppy shoes and horns

By Coach Collins, on December 2nd, 2010

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is a collection of clowns and shakedown artists that brings shame on the House of Representatives.

Between 2004 and 2008 the CBC took in $55 million from those hoping to bribe its members. While the putative purpose for collecting this money was to fund charitable programs, all but $1 million of it flowed into the pockets of the CBC and never was accounted for.

This means CBC’s 40 members got over $337,000 a year of unreported and untraceable money while representing constituencies that would re-elect them even if they ran from death row. These obvious violations of basic ethics aside, this troupe of clowns includes some of the least competent and most dangerous people ever to serve in our Congress.

Aside from the blatantly corrupt Charlie Rangel and John Conyers and Maxine Waters, both of whom have clear ties to the Communist Party, here are just a few of the least qualified members of the CBC.

Hank Johnson

During a hearing on the island of Guam, in absolute sincerity Johnson said, “My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.” He never backed down from his statement.

Chaka Fattah, born Arthur Davenport

Fattah proposed that a NASA space module should be named in honor of Stephen Colbert the TV personality. Fattah won reelection in 2008 with 89%.

Keith Ellison

On his conversion to Islam, Ellison said looking at the “social circumstances” of America he determined that Islam offered the best path to change and “justice.”

Alcee Hastings

In 1981 as a sitting Carter appointed federal judge in Florida he was tried for accepting $150,000 in bribes in return for his perjury to help two gangsters. Although Hastings was acquitted when a co-conspirator refused to testify, in 1989 a Democrat controlled House and Senate made him only the 6th impeached federal judge.

Eddie Bernice Johnson

When caught funneling CBC scholarship funds to her grandchildren Johnson said the accusation was made to “cast me in an unfair light that was intended to distort my image before my constituents….this [gives] the impression I overlooked a segment of my constituency to benefit my family, this was not the case.”

Sheila Jackson Lee

During a visit to a NASA laboratory Lee asked if the Mars Pathfinder had taken a picture of the America flag Neil Armstrong planted on Mars in 1969.
