Murtha and the FBI: The Director's Cut


From, The American Spectator:

Video as well as a transcript of FBI sting operation involving Congressman Jack Murtha in the Abscam investigation are linked to the American Spectator article.

In recent years, only a 13-second video of Murtha's videotaped meeting with the FBI agents was publicly available. TAS has obtained a copy of the full, original video from a source close to the Abscam investigation on the condition of anonymity. The court transcript is publicly available at the National Archives.[...]

[...]On the video, Murtha does not appear to be a man uninterested in money. He appears to be uninterested at that point. Interpretation of the nuances of this conversation may be subjective, but Murtha appears essentially to say, You don't need Thompson and Murphy. I'm the guy who makes it happen.

A politician being bought out? No way!

I think the Jack Abramoff scandal proves this.

All politicans are in it for money, that's why most of them have never had a real job.

A Democrat caught in a lie?

Next you'll try to convince me butter tastes good on popcorn.

Neither is the point.

The Democrates ran on a "Culture of corruption and the MSM were their willing allies as this type of information was covered up.

How many people have heard or seen these tapes, but if it had been a Republician, they would have been run in prime time every day.

Jack murtha is Nancy Pelosi's choice for House Majority leader. Pelosi has her own ethics problems, Harry Reid has been caught benifiting from shady land deals which involve legislation and earmarks of which he was the author, Alcie Hastings was a Federal judge recently impeached for fraud, Charlie Rangle has close Socialist ties if not an outright Socialist in his own right.

Every one of these people is portraied in the MSM as almost saintly and the ignorant American electorate laped it up! Every one is slated for a leadership position in the House.

I intend to start fighting for 08 now and profile every one of these criminal clowns.

The message of this past election, as received by Dhimmicrats... Surrender Iraq.

Come on folks, get something current and something sexy.

You think the American public will pay attention to some old Abscam tapes. Please, the idiots are all out watching "Borat".

What you fail to understand is that Republicans ran on a platform of restoring "integrity" to the White House and immediately fell flat on their collective arse.

You better have film of Pelosi in a donkey act if you want to play this card.

Games over, folks. Tell your thumper evangelists to stop coming home through the back door and start licking your wounds.

Farmer John said...

...and Democrats were NOT elected to surrender or "redeploy home". They were told to do something new to WIN.

Mr. Ducky said...

I disagree, Farmer but it is good to read that you realize that unless you want to invade Grenada, it is best to keep Republicans away from firearms and related ordnance.

Hey Farmer, did you read the description of the Freeper who was caught sending fake anthrax to Pelosi and others?

Myself, I think he should be waterboarded till he gives out Jim Robinson's secret hideout location but I have some pity.

Typical rethug FREEP, a neighbor who's known him since he was 8 keeps repeating there's something 'wrong' with him - never held a job, no friends, does pool maintenance at 3am while making animal noises ... lives with mom - sister says he's on full disability for undisclosed mental problems... all the time he's posting about the "nanny state". You know the type.

Freedomnow said...

As you can see this was released over a month ago, but it wont make headlines because Murtha is a Democratic Party politician with a great deal of sympathy from the liberal press.

Now if he was a Republican this would still be the rage after over a month...

Farmer John said...

Can't waterboard US nationals ducky... or you woulda been drowned years ago!

Farmer John said...

Is it any wonder conservatives are going nuts as a result of the election and recent statements from the likes of Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D)?

Dhimmiecrats remind me of those Indonesian tourists who ran down to the beach as the tide was being sucked out 5 minutes before the tsunami hit...

Farmer John said...

...if we ever want to be safe again, we'd better keep dhimmiecrats away from ballot boxes and Michael Moore documentaries.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Ducky,

Where is Ratko Mladic?

Yeah we know him. He goes by the handle mr. ducky and has an avatar that looks lie a C rated Science Fiction bugeyed MORON!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Mr. Ducky said...

Mladic? How would I know?

I assume he's moving from place to place in Belgrade. Probably in failing health.

nanc said...

ah-oh!

who let the bird in?

i'm gettin' outta dodge...

Elmer's Brother said...

Hey Dukkky when has the green party won anything? and if you know anything it's about the back door.

Gayle said...

It starts with Jack Murtha. Now lets catch Pelosi in the donky act that Ducky speaks of. We must get rid of her; she's a nutcase, sort of like your troll here.

nanc said...

dad is going to be soooooo mad when he gets home!

which reminds me of a joke...

Elmer's Brother said...

thought this was funny

found it at Scrappleface

House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi today defended her decision to back Rep. Jack Murtha, D-PA, as the next House Majority Leader, citing his extensive ethics experience as crucial to her efforts to “clean up the House.”

“Jack Murtha knows corruption inside and out,” said Rep. Pelosi, D-CA. “If we’re going to purge misconduct from our midst, we need someone intimately familiar with it.”

She distributed to reporters a history of Rep. Murtha’s “work involving ethics,” that she called “a chronicle of accomplishment dating back to the Abscam bribery sting days — making him ideally suited for leadership in the Democrat party.”

“Jack Murtha has been at the forefront of the corruption debate for almost three decades,” she said. “We can’t afford to elect a leader who’s naive in these matters. We need a man who knows the cost of buying votes with earmark porkbarrel projects, a man for whom political nepotism is not just a textbook case study, a man who has the courage to look at a $50,000 bribe and say ‘I’m not interested…at this point’, and one who has demonstrated the kind of cooperative skills it takes to walk away from an FBI probe a free man.”

“In brief,” Rep. Pelosi said, “two words sum up Jack Murtha’s qualifications to lead the scouring of the House: unindicted co-conspirator.”

Warren said...

Nostradumbass sounds kind of shrill to me.

It must be horrible to be so, so ...irrelavant.

Why don't you go omn over to johnny boys blog and you two commies can chat about dialectical materialism, armchair revolution and such.

Warren said...

Btw, Ducky, you still haven't said what yopu're going to do with your pissy assed little snake gun when the evangelicals come for you. We're betting that you blow out your brains.

Warren said...

Thanks EB,
I'm compiling info now.

Farmer John said...

Pelosi promised to "drain the swamp of corruption in Washington" in her bid for the Speakership. Then she nominate's Jack Murtha for a Leadership position.

I guess she's discovered a new responsibility for protecting wetlands.

cube said...

It would be great if Pelosi gets shot down on this idiotic choice of hers.

BTW the Wall Street Journal has a great piece by John Fund on Murtha's muck.

Elmer's Brother said...

your posts are not showing up but when I click on an individual article other than the top one I can see it. Might want to have a look at that top post or is it me?

Elmer's Brother said...

nevermind I see what happened it's just much farther down the page duh

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Mladic? How would I know?

Just reminding you of one of the more recent Democrat-led military failures, Ducky.

I figure bombing the shit out of Serbia for no discernable reason whatsoever would at least have a prize - alleged war criminal Ratko Mladic - but I know better than to expect follow through from the short attention span party.
