Harry Reid not releasing his own tax returns

LAS VEGAS — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid again deflected questions Monday about releasing his tax returns, even as he continued to pound the demand for Mitt Romney to make more of his own public.

Instead, Reid pointed to the financial disclosure forms he files as a member of Congress, which provide different information.

“I’m a member of Congress now, I don’t make too much money,” said Reid, whose net worth was estimated at $10 million in 2010. “But it’s all listed every year.”

Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson told POLITICO last week that the majority leader will not release
his tax returns, writing: “He’s not running for president. … He has of
course released more than 30 years of detailed [personal finance
disclosures]. There is exponentially more information available to the
public about Sen. Reid’s financial life than there is about Mitt
Romney’s.”


Conservatives accuse Reid of hypocrisy for his attacks on Romney. And the Las Vegas Review-Journal — in a somewhat different context — on Monday resurrected
a 1974 statement in which Reid said: “Any man or woman who will not be
completely candid about his or her finances does not deserve to be in
public office.”


Asked about that statement at a news conference Monday in Nevada, Reid responded: “In 1974, I wasn’t in Congress.


“All you have to do is go look,” he added. “I file every year, every
stock trade, every piece of land I buy, all the money I have, it has the
value of my homes, it’s got it all there.”

NOTE:.....Reid just happens to be the richest Senate Member to date - how does one making only $170,000.00 annually become SO rich SO quickly??? ~ snell

    "The serial killer has the same personality characteristics as the sex offender against children" ~ Dr. Mace Knapp, Nevada State Prison Psychologist

    Child rapists should be executed. Period. Kill them. They are worse than murderers. The dead suffer no longer, their pain ends and they cannot continue on to kill more people.

    Molest a child, however, and their life is hell, and a high number of them become molesters themselves (see below). Even those who do not become molesters - and that's the majority of them, I should point out - suffer horribly and are plagued by a long list of pychological problems for the rest of their lives.

    An analogy: A rapid dog can spread rabies by biting other animals. The rabid dog cannot control its actions, and it is not Fido's fault that he has rabies. That doesn't change the fact that Fido is dangerous, and even after he is shot dead the some of the animals that he has already bitten may already be spreading the disease. Pedophiles who molest children are like that. Their uncontrollable urges may not be "their fault," but that does not change the fact that they are a serious menace.

    molest children uncontrollable urges fault change menace pedophiles rabid dogs

    The Baltimore Sun had an interesting article on July 18 which quotes James Cantor of the University of Toronto, who studies sexual behavior and abuse. "No one has been able to find a way to change pedophiles into nonpedophiles," the Sun quotes him as saying, "but that doesn't mean we cannot prevent child molestation."

    Granted, complete prevention is probably impossible. But a significant reduction of the frequency of child molestation could be achieved by removing the molesters themselves. Once identified and convicted, kill them. I guarantee you that no killer that was put do death has ever killed again.

    The same reality applies to those who rape children, but consider this: The evil of even an executed child raper continues on forever. If he (or she) molested half a dozen kids, one or two of them may go on to be molesters and might molest at least half a dozen themselves. Then, some of those victims become perpetrators, and the numbers keep growing. The murder victims, on the other hand, lay harmless in the ground.


    Rabid Dog: Jerry Sandusky should be executed
    It is important to note that not all children who are molested become molesters. But it's a high percentage. "Male perpetrators of child sexual abuse were more likely to have been abused as children than male subjects who were not perpetrators," according to a study by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust in London, U.K. "35% of male perpetrators of sexual abuse had been victims of such abuse, while 11% of males who had not perpetrated abuse had been victims of child sexual abuse."

    "In many cases, child sex abusers suffer from traumatic experiences during their childhood," note writers Michael Cochran & Meghan Cole at Neuroanthropology. "More specifically, pedophiles tend to also have been molested as children. As children, they lacked the ability to control the situation. By sexually assaulting children, pedophiles attempt to re-live the trauma they experienced and they learn how to master it. A complete role reversal gives them the upper hand and prevents them from being victimized. Overall, through the impact of cerebral dysfunction and traumatic development, the sexual urges and desires for children can become ingrained within a person’s nervous system." "Ingrained within a person's nervous system," they said. Just like rabies.

    Legislation that protects not just Congress...but ANYONE...who commits such crimes!!!!

    "PEDOPHILE PROTECTION ACT" WILL SNEAK INTO SENATE AMENDMENT
    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), added the "Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act,” (which is better known to conservatives as the "Pedophile Protection Act,") to his short-term legislative list Monday, by saying he was "committed" to a Senate vote on hate crimes legislation before the August recess. The pro-homosexual newspaper Washington Blade reported the vote would happen last week, but staffers at Senator Kennedy's office denied that, giving us a few more days to act.

    The pro-homosexual, anti-faith bill, sponsored by Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and pushed hard by the Obama Administration, was until recently labeled S. 909 "Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act." But it faced such strong resistance by conservatives (including threat of filibuster or faith-protecting amendments by pro-faith Senator Jim DeMint, R-SC), so instead Democrats have announced they will soon hide the bill as an amendment to another "must-move" bill, denying committee hearings, and completely side-stepping the Republicans right to debate and amend.

Now President Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder is reportedly linking passage of this pro-homosexual bill to protecting the rights of Hispanic illegal aliens, which would be deceptive, since "national origin" is already protected in the 1994 hate-crimes law, and 75% of Hispanics oppose gay marriage.

    547 SEXUAL DEVIANCES TO BE PROTECTED BY FEDERAL MARSHALS

    The forthcoming "poison pill" amendment will mirror a House bill H.R. 1913, already passed 249-175 along strict party lines, which makes "sexual orientation," "gender," and "gender identity" into federally-protected classes under the law, and codifies federal protection of up to 547 types of sexually deviant behaviors, including:

    * Incest – sex with one’s offspring (a crime, of course)
    * Necrophilia – sexual relations with a corpse, also a crime
    * Pedophilia – sex with an underage child, another crime
    * Zoophilia – bestiality, a crime in numerous states
    * Voyeurism – a criminal offense in most states
    * Fronteurism – a man rubbing against an unknown woman’s buttocks
    * Coprophilia – sexual arousal from feces
    * Urophilia – sexual arousal from urine
    Attempts by House Republicans to add amendments stating "pedophilia is not protected as a sexual orientation" were specifically blocked and defeated by House Democrats. Lesbian Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) expressed opposition to excluding pedophiles from the bill, and Democrats voted with her to strike any child-protection amendment. She claimed that pedophiles would not be defined within “sexual orientation,” but wouldn't put that in writing, and refused to define that phrase "sexual orientation," which according to the American Psychiatric Association includes all 547 sexual deviances listed in their DSM-III manual of clinical psychoses, including pedophilia, so now thanks to most Democrats, child molesters will be protected by federal law.

    QUOTING THE BIBLE IN CHURCH WILL BE PUNISHED

    Not only will sexually deviant behaviors gain legal protection, this legislation also lays the legal foundation to investigate, prosecute and persecute pastors, youth pastors, Bible teachers, and anyone else whose speech and thought is based upon and reflects the truths found in the Bible. How will this legislation over-rule the First Amendment?

    PASTORS NOT PROTECTED BY FIRST AMENDMENT

    S. 909 broadly defines "intimidation," thus a pastor's sermon could be considered "hate speech" if heard by an individual who then acts aggressively against persons based on any "sexual orientation." The pastor could be prosecuted for "conspiracy to commit a hate crime" or for "inciting violence against gays" simply by quoting the Bible in church. And the First Amendment won’t automatically protect pastors, since speech accused of "inciting violence" is not protected, and is punishable, under precedent of Supreme Court rulings. In 1993 Wisconsin v. Mitchell, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a "hate speech" law providing enhanced punishments for violent crimes based on racial motives as revealed by speech of the accused, (which would now apply broadly to punish any "anti-gay motives" in the speech of accused pastor "co-conspirators.") But pastor, if a crazy person in your audience commits a crime against a heterosexual, don't worry, you'll get a comparative discount in your prison time.

    IS PRAYER IN JESUS’ NAME A "HATE CRIME?"

    Any public prayer against the sin of homosexuality could be construed as "inciting violence" by easily offended listeners, especially if those prayers are offered "in Jesus name." When I served our country as a former Navy Chaplain, for example, I was told in writing by Chief of Chaplains Rear-Admiral Louis Iasiello, that "any chaplain’s continued insistence on ending public prayers ‘in Jesus’ name’…could reasonably tend to denigrate those with different forms of faith." His policy prohibiting prayers "in Jesus name" was enforced against me at court-martial, before it was later rescinded by Congress in 2006. But this year I’ve already been falsely accused of "inciting violence" because I quoted verbatim from Psalm 109 in my public prayers, (for which secular activist Mikey Weinstein literally requested an FBI investigation against me!) Just imagine more anti-Christian aggression by law enforcement officials AFTER this hate-crimes bill becomes law.

    IS PREACHING AGAINST SIN A HATE CRIME?

    As a former Navy Chaplain who was punished (in writing, three times) for quoting the Bible in chapel during optionally-attended worship, I know exactly how they'll come after us. The enemies of religious liberty will simply declare certain gospel phrases "hateful" and "offensive" like my commanding officer who punished me for quoting John 3:36 in chapel, and was supported by government lawyers for "protecting" easily offended listeners from the "offensive" gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ.

    Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) agrees with me, saying pastors, rabbis, or imams could be charged with encouraging or inducing a "hate crime" if they preach against homosexuality. "Every preacher of the gospel, unless you cut out parts of it; every imam who mentions anything with regard to sexual immorality — they could be pursued, and in other countries they have been," says Gohmert. (Congressmen Gohmert is my personal advocate, with whom I preached last year at a pro-faith rally in Texas...and we both agree the gospel of freedom from sin really is "love speech" not "hate speech.")

    FREE SPEECH SUPPRESSED IN NORWAY

    Hate crimes laws protecting homosexuals from criticism are already silencing pastors in Norway, where these dangerous laws specifically empower law enforcement officials to prosecute "intimidation" of homosexuals. For example, Congressman Gohmert warned "I was talking to a guy from Norway who was telling me that people are even afraid to say Mary was a virgin, because just bringing up sexuality at all can raise problems with law enforcement."

    FREE SPEECH CRIMINALIZED IN SWEDEN

    In Sweden, Pastor Ake Green received a one-month jail sentence last year under a Swedish "hate crimes" law that forbids criticism of those who participate in homosexual behavior. The Goeta Appeals Court later overturned the decision. The government demanded the pastor be punished by appealing the case to the Swedish Supreme Court, which ruled the law unconstitutional. Yet here in America, the Reid-Kennedy-Obama trio is pushing to pass and enforce this same type of "anti-free speech" law, despite their acknowledgment that any such enforcement would be unconstitutional in America too. (They why pass the bill in the first place?)

    FREE SPEECH CRIMINALIZED IN CANADA

    In Canada, where "hate crimes" laws already passed, the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal actively forbid evangelical pastor Stephen Boisson from expressing his moral opposition to homosexuality. The tribunal also ordered Boisson to pay $5,000 "damages for pain and suffering" and apologize to the "human rights" activist who filed the complaint. His crime? In 2002, the pastor wrote a letter to the editor of his local newspaper in which he denounced the homosexual agenda as "wicked" and stated that: "Children as young as five and six years of age are being subjected to psychologically and physiologically damaging pro-homosexual literature and guidance in the public school system; all under the fraudulent guise of equal rights." The Canadian government tribunal ordered the Christian pastor to "cease publishing in newspapers, by email, on the radio, in public speeches, or on the internet, in future, disparaging remarks about gays and homosexuals." (This "re-education commission" reminds me of Big Brother from Orwell’s 1984.)

    FREE SPEECH CRIMINALIZED IN PENNSYLVANIA:

    Can’t happen in America? It already has. In 2004 my friend Michael Marcavage was arrested along with ten other Christians (including two elderly grandmothers), and charged with violating Pennsylvania’s "hate crimes" laws, because they carried signs conveying God’s love at a Gay Pride rally. One member of "The Philadelphia Eleven," Arlene Elshinnawy, 75 year-old grandmother of three, was holding a sign: "Truth is hate to those who hate the truth," before she was hauled off to jail by police officers. They were literally threatened with 50 years in jail for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ on a public sidewalk, because it offended gays. That hate crimes law was so outrageous it was later found unconstitutional by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, but now Ted Kennedy and Barack Obama want to pass essentially that same discredited law nationwide.
