Serial Liars

kenny's sideshow 

"I was confused when I stated I served in Vietnam. It must have been lack of oxygen in my brain. That's it, lack of oxygen due to the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere."

"I urge the new Obama EPA to declare carbon dioxide a danger to human health and welfare."

Richard Blumenthal, the so called “Jewish Jack Kennedy,” has a problem. After being touted as a sure bet to take the retiring Chris Dodd’s Senate seat, he is scrambling with damage control after the NY Time's report on a slight little error in what he said was his Vietnam service record.

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”

There was one problem: Mr. Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam. He obtained at least five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and took repeated steps that enabled him to avoid going to war, according to records.

The deferments allowed Mr. Blumenthal to complete his studies at Harvard; pursue a graduate fellowship in England; serve as a special assistant to The Washington Post’s publisher, Katharine Graham; and ultimately take a job in the Nixon White House.

In 1970, with his last deferment in jeopardy, he landed a coveted spot in the Marine Reserve, which virtually guaranteed that he would not be sent to Vietnam. He joined a unit in Washington that conducted drills and other exercises and focused on local projects, like fixing a campground and organizing a Toys for Tots drive.{more}
Jewish groups that were hot to trot in getting another one of their own in the Senate will try to spin this away but it should be too late.  What are they going to say, that it's a right wing conspiracy from the NY Times?

His Vietnam lie is bad enough but he was also caught in another one recently.

On MSNBC’s "Morning Joe", Blumenthal said, “I have never taken PAC money and I have rejected all special interest money because I have stood strong and have taken legal action against many of those special interests.

”Though Blumenthal denied he took PAC money, the Federal Election Commission website said Blumenthal took more than $220,000 in PAC money. {more}

Blumenthal is just another psychopathic serial liar. The Senate certainly doesn't need another one.

So that we won't be accused of only picking on Jewish Democrat liars, another creep is in the news.

This time it's a Republican "Christian' congressman, a real family values guy who gets caught with his pants down and announces his retirement.

Saying he "sinned against God, my wife and my family by having a mutual relationship with a part-time member of my staff," Rep. Mark Souder, R-3rd, said Tuesday he will resign from Congress.

"I am so ashamed to have hurt those I love," he said. "I am so sorry to have let so many friends down, people who have fought so hard for me."  "I feel just awful."  "It is a nightmare. Can't believe it is happening" {more}

This is the guy who authored and championed the Aid Elimination Penalty that suspends eligibility for federal financial aid to college students convicted of smoking a little pot.

On February 9, 2007 Souder appeared as a guest on MSNBC's The Situation With Tucker Carlson. Souder was asked specifically as to why marijuana is of such focus with regard to anti-drug campaigns.

He said of today's marijuana plants "the destruction in your brain cells, is more like coke or crack than it is like the old time marijuana" in regard to the addictiveness and modern THC content.

Souder said that the high THC content of today's marijuana makes it much stronger than "the ditch weed" of the 1960s and 1970s. The congressman later went on to say "No drug user is a single drug user" and goes on to clarify that "a marijuana user is very seldom just a casual marijuana user", to which Carlson said he was wrong based upon users he knows.
Besides being known as 'family man,' Souder has always groveled to Israel.  Netanyahu must be sad today that his friend is gone but no need for Benny to worry, he still has hundreds more in Congress to rely on.

"Support for Israel is deeply rooted in biblical teaching. From start to finish, the Bible emphasizes the unique place of Israel and the Jewish people as the Chosen People of God.from the Souder house.gov site

Two serial liars down, many more to go .....
