from the SharkTank:

A group of sign-waving campaign ralliers comprised of both Democrat and Republican supporters outside an Aventura, Florida polling location witnessed Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz get involved in a heated altercation with an Aventura policeman after she apparently took issue with his request to not engage in campaign activities in the street which would hold up oncoming traffic.

She listened to the police officer’s respectful and reasonable request, but Wasserman Schultz continued to argue with the police officer, according to several people who witnessed the incident.

Wasserman Schultz was greeting voters and waiving her campaign signs on a street that leading into the polling site and was obstructing traffic by stopping cars before they could even enter the parking area.

The police officer respectfully asked Wasserman Schultz to move onto the sidewalk as everyone else was required to do, but the  Congresswoman was unhappy with not being able to campaign how she saw it fit.  Unnerved by the simple request from a police officer, Wasserman Schultz made a “well placed” phone call to some unknown individual in a position of authority.  Five minutes later, the Aventura City Mayor came to the scene and was confronted by Debbie Wasserman Schultz and proceeded to get an earful from her as well.

from the SharkTank:

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has famously stated that she is a “middle class American,” and it was this very claim that prompted many of her critics to openly question whether or not it was a realistic assessment of her personal income and assets.  Wasserman Schultz’ Republican congressional opponent Karen Harrington has called on her to release her personal tax income tax returns in response to her repeated calls for Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney to do the same.

Subsequent reviews of Wasserman Schultz’ congressional financial disclosures revealed a not widely known fact that she owns a second home in New Hampshire and is also not required to disclose her husband’s salary, which could very easily put her family among the top 1% of income earners in the country.  In addition, the Shark Tank recently reported that the Congresswoman splurged on a one-week luxury cruise ship vacation that cost tens of thousands of dollars- hardly an expenditure that ‘middle-class’ Americans can avail themselves of.  (Source –N.H Home/Cruise Ship)

According to those financial disclosure forms, Mr. and Mrs. Schultz of Weston, Florida have seen their assets almost  double since she was elected to the U.S. Congress in 2005.  When comparing Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz’s 2005 disclosure form with her 2011 form, the only other salary she drew besides her congressional salary was $26,320 she received from the Democrat National Committee (see images below).

Hold on to your Guns and Your Faith

During an interview with the Editorial Board of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz indicated her willingness to further scale back 2nd Amendment protections once she believes we are in a “more favorable political environment.”

For liberals such as Wasserman Schultz, that typically means immediately in the wake of horrific mass-shooting events violence such as the one that occurred two weeks ago in Aurora, CO.  But since we’re in an presidential election year, Wasserman Schultz knows that it’s just not feasible now to propose new gun laws.

Wasserman Schultz didn’t elaborate exactly on what new restrictions she’d want to enact- we always here about liberals fetish for “common sense” gun laws while conveniently ignoring the hundreds of pages of federal and state laws already on the books that already constitute “common sense.”

But now the Shark Tank has come into possession of information that has never been publicly disclosed which completely undermines Wasserman Schultz’ credibility as it pertains to her calls for transparency or the claim that she qualifies as “middle class.”

Speaking of “offshore” interests, on 6/9/12 Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz took a one-week cruise aboard the Royal Caribbean ‘Oasis of the Seas’ luxury liner to the Western Caribbean, embarking from Port Everglades, Florida.

The two-story, spiral-staircase ‘Loft Suite’ that Bruce’s son was invited up to was on the 17th deck that overlooked the rear of the ship. According to Royal Caribbean, a 7-Day Cruise for 4 guests ranges from $15,264.08 in the Crown Loft Suite, to $19,364.08 in the Sky Loft Suite. These two types of suites are only found on the 17th Deck. (Source-Royal Caribbean)

So the question begs- how can someone earning a living on a congressional salary afford such a lavish suite on a cruise ship- especially someone who so adamantly claims she is “middle class?” Also take into consideration that Wasserman Schultz’ family was a party of five on board the cruise ship, meaning that they would have been charged an additional $1615 for the fifth guest, bringing the cost of the cruise somewhere between $16,879.08 and $20,979.08.

After the Shark Tank contacted and spoke to a Royal Caribbean sales agent, we were informed that  as per maritime laws enforced by the U.S. Coast Guard, families of five or more that wish to reside in a ‘Loft Suite’ are mandated to upgrade to the Royal Loft Suite as per safety regulations. That brings a one-week excursion in a Royal Loft Suite aboard the Oasis of the Seas for a family of five to $33,151.65, taxes included.(Source- Royal Caribbean Email)

But that’s not Debbie’s only instance of hypocrisy.

Back on the mainland, Newbury, New Hampshire is a quaint little town that’s located in Merrimack County. According to public records, we’ve learned that Wasserman Schultz owns a second home here along with another land parcel. Based on our own public records search, these assets have never been previously disclosed by Wasserman Schultz.

As per congressional disclosure rules, Wasserman Schultz is not required to report either her personal residence or additional properties that do not generate rental income. If Wasserman Schultz were to release her personal income tax returns as requested by her Republican congressional opponent Karen Harrington, these assets would then be disclosed.(Source)

Hhhmm…. no wonder Debbie had this “SharkTank” blogger booted from the Jefferson-Jackson dinner gala for Florida’s Democrats.

National Democrats have repeatedly touted their stand against taking corporate money for their convention in September, and so it was striking to see two emails from the DNC host committee referring to the Charlotte venue where President Obama will speak as “Panthers Stadium.”

It’s the place where the Panthers play, but it’s actually called Bank of America stadium.

A recent email from the host committee signed by former Al Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile urged people to win a trip to Charlotte for the event, which will wrap “Thursday night at Panthers Stadium with President Obama.”

Another email in June made the same pitch about the stadium.

  ” So it’s time to Spend Spend and SOEND some more!!”

   Can you already hera the mantra cry from DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as she makes her way through the Sunday talk show circuit, proclaiming the efficiencies of the Stimulus, and Stimulus 2.0!?

     David Axelrod will say we just had to give him the chance, the time, for his policies to work.

     With the release of the weekly unemployment claims filed, as wellas the jobs report from January, unemployment has reached its lowest point in three years. At Least that is what we will be told! MOST of the “news” stories will leave out the “cooked books” math that gives us this artificially created number. What they fail to tell us is the REAL unemployment rate, which includes those who are no longer receiving unemployment benefits, and who have stopped looking for work. The rate also does not reflect those who have pieced together several jobs to make ends meet and stay off the government dole.

    So as Obama and his surrogates take to the campaign trail to sing their own praises, keep these things in mind!

Debbie Debbie Debbie….. We know you way too well. You wouldn’t shirk a great Committee assignment like the House Judiciary Committee “just because”. So What’s Up Debbie??

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Democrat, submitted her resignation as a member of the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. According to the floor of the House

The House received a communication from the Honorable Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Ms. Wasserman Schultz submitted her resignation from the Committee on the Judiciary. The resignation was accepted without objection.

Rep. Wasserman Schultz still serves as a member of the House Budget Committee, Chief Deputy Whip for the minority, as well as Chair to the Democratic National Committee. 

The Washington Times Water Cooler put in an inquiry to Wasserman Schultz’s office about the congresswoman’s resignation from the judiciary committee and is waiting on a response.

Sidenote: Rep. Wasserman Schultz battled breast cancer several years ago while at the same time being Pelosi’s water-girl. We at James hope that her health is not behind her committee decision.

      After Rep. Lt. Col. Allen West spoke in the House about the debt ceiling crisis, and left the hall, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (also the DNC Chair) took to bashing the freshman Congressman, a Tea Party favorite. Angered that she did not challenge him in person, West sent the Congresswoman, and the leadership of both parties, the following scathing email:

From: Z112 West, Allen
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

     The recently announced “position” on the necessity of mammograms for women under the age of 50 has sparked debate and controversy in the medical field, with the American Cancer Society, among federal leaders. In the context of ObamaCare, the “information” gives rise to the underlying idea of healthcare rationing, particularly since these suggestions mirror those used in Great Britain by ts NHS bureau. Under the Greta Britain guidelines, a larger percentage of women die of breast cancer than in the United States.

     One of Speaker Pelosi’s “deputies”, Floruda Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was very quick to react to suggestions about mammograms:

Do they see the writing on the wall yet?
