Watch out about Ms. Sinema. There's an old Chinese proverb--the straight tree may have crooked roots. She has serious, serious problems. I went to President Obama's college & am for him, although the reason is purely one of prejudice--I went to Columbia College. I do not hide that little fact from anyone. To me he won every single debate point against his opponent hands down! In all likelihood either fellow would likely make a good President, but I'm definitely for Obama all the way, as I have been since the first run, when I was a delegate to our little County Convention here in Lubbock, Texas. I find the notion of private prisons very disturbing (we do not have them in Texas). Not only would I raise taxes on the rich, every blasted one of us would pay more in tax were I in charge. Also, no charitable deductions would exist whatsoever for any reason. Religion has ZERO place in government in my mind, although I believe very much in God. A person's sexuality is his or her own business. This disclaimer is listed simply to let you know I am by no means a rabid right wing Republican, although I like our Senator very much because, having been a former State Supreme Court judge, he does things behind the scenes that protect all of us. You really cannot see that because the only way to be a successful politician in Texas, for the most part, is to be a blowhard. The problems with Ms. Sinema are, inter alia, 1) her being on the take of the private prison industry, despite her supposed actions on the behalf of defendants, 2) her pretending to be Hispanic & then blaming the organization for the error, 3) her almost unbelievable number of run ins with the law (it does not matter that they were small things, when you get to over twelve, there is a huge problem), & 4) her saying she defended murderers, when in fact there are ZERO records of her on the computer search of the Maricopa Superior Court, something that is unbelievable. If indeed she did represent persons accused of homicide, that's an incredible indictment of Arizona. No one should have incompetent counsel when accused of the most heinous of crimes. To be represented by someone with less than five years of full time experience is to have grossly inadequate counsel.

My name is Mitchell S. Wachtel, MD. I live in Lubbock, Texas. I have been practicing pathology for over 25 years &, if you check, you will see I have multiple publications. You can check the Texas Medical Board to see I do live in Lubbock & that also I have no Board actions against me. Your first response to me was not to argue facts, but to claim I was uttering a lie, suggesting that my arguments blamed Ms. Sinema for the September 11, 2001 destruction of the world trade center. I did my best to excuse your action as being one of ignorance, explaining that I myself sometimes confused the 2001 collapse of the towers with the original 1993 bombing. Instead of admitting you were in error concerning my argument, you now choose to avoid dealing with the argument by again attacking me personally. To accomplish this, you assert that I am not in fact Mitchell S. Wachtel, MD. In fact, I am indeed Mitchell Steven Wachtel, born May 22, 1959, who lives in Lubbock, Texas. Please check the Texas Medical Board to verify this. Not only that, you can google my name to see I have dozens & dozens of medical publications. Why, I am even listed in Marquis' Who's Who. Assuredly, out of state persons have legitimate interests in Congressional elections everywhere if they find them of interest. Al Gore & Bill Clinton both endorsed opponents of Ms. Sinema & were never said to be out of place, were they? No, my interest lies in ensuring that someone connected to organized crime is not elected to Congress. The primary is now over. The general election is upon us. The Republicans will indeed be attacking Ms. Sinema with great force. Why should they not? After all, the opponents of Governor Cuomo & Sen. Kirk were both opposed because of their connections to organized crime, were they not? Note that Mr. Hannley, if that really is him, is speaking in favor of Ms. Sinema in a very sophistical fashion. Why look at what "he" does as respects a noble idea as respects lawyers, something distorted in a way only a lawyer could dream of distorting it. Yes indeed the foulest persons in the country deserve a vigorous defense by an attorney. That's fundamental to our system of justice. Michael Tiger, in defending Ms. Stewart, was performing just that function as an officer of the Court on the same level as the prosecutor! This is very, very true. This privilege, for that is exactly what it was when Ms. Stewart defended Sammy "the Bull" Gravano, comes with responsibilities. A lawyer is not allowed to commit felonies in the defense of his or her client. Lawyers cannot, for example, suborn perjury. Even worse, however, lawyers are not permitted to commit felonies for their clients in matters unrelated to their accusations. When Ms. Stewart conspired with Sheik Rahman to commit acts of terrorism, she crossed the line. As for erasing these posts, think of what that would mean. Free speech would be shown to mean absolutely nothing to Ms. Hannley, who can better tell us how Mr. Hannley became such a great attorney. I have not used obscene words, complained of Ms. Sinema's religion or sexual orientation or any other personal matter. Neither can you, who accused me of knowingly publishing a falsehood claim that I accused you unjustly of any sin. I do not know who you are & wish you personally the best of luck. By the same token, I hope you will not contribute to the presence in our Congress of one connected to organized crime.

Ms. Corsica, you are blaming the Bush administration for 9/11 here. There is little doubt of that unless you modify your words. Do you really believe Pres. Bush was responsible for the 9/11 destruction of the World Trade Center? If I do not hear from you by tomorrow on this one, I will assume that that is a belief of the Sinema supporters & her campaign. Please be so kind as to let me know.

Mr. Hannley, one gathers a legal spokesperson for Ms. Sinema, has not bothered to explain Sheik Rahman's role. Let us begin with Judge Duffy's sentencing statement with respect to Sheik Rahman. So far as the argument that you were tried here for and that you are being punished for your religion, that echoes a claim that was raised in public statements by your lawyer and by you before trial. It is not any more true now than it was then, and it was totally false then. You were accused here of leading a terrorist conspiracy in this country. That is what you were convicted of, and that is what you are being punished for. You were convicted of directing others to perform acts which, if they had been accomplished, would have resulted in the murder of hundreds if not thousands of people, and brought about devastation on a scale that beggars the imagination, certainly on a scale unknown in this country since the Civil War, if not ever, and would have made the World Trade Center outrage seem almost insignificant by comparison. If the person providing technical assistance to the spring 1993 conspirators had not been a government informant but had been a person of the sort who provided technical assistance to the World Trade Center bombers, that ghastly result would have been achieved. The statute that was applied to those acts was not stretched. It fit the crime of which you were convicted. You also directed others to accomplish the murder of a foreign head of state. That is what you are being punished for, not for your religion. http://intelfiles.egoplex.com/61HKRAHS-sentencing.htm The links between this foul organized crime ring and that headed by Osama bin Laden have well been established. The caveat later given by Judge Duffy that the deterrent effect of the conviction might not be effective enough came to light on September 11, 2001, when Osama Bin Laden's crime family destroyed the twin towers & attacked the pentagon, killing untold thousands of persons, none of whom elicited much sympathy from Ms. Sinema or, one gathers, her spokesman Mr. Hannley. What one might do is to find out if Ms. Sinema urged leniency towards Osama Bin Laden. That would be a fascinating thing to look into. Did this person irrefragably connected to organized crime via her pushing Ms. Stewart case in public go so far as to urge that no military action be taken against Osama Bin Laden, but that the United States sit idly by, waiting for the fiend to kill more of us. That will be discussed next.

Democratic voters of CD9 have decided to support a person connected to the foulest organized crime ring in many decades. The connections between Sheik Rahmans mob & Al Qaeda are not as superficial as they might seem to be, for Mr. Osama bin Laden provided the money for the defense of Mr. Nosair, who had earlier been found not guilty of murdering Mr. Meier Kahana, witnesses to his holding a gun & firing the weapon notwithstanding. Ms. Sinema, like Mr. Nosair, appear to support Israel. From his attorney's statement at sentencing: ___________ He is the man who in a letter to the New York Times that was published on March 4 of 1994, deplored the, quote, "cycle of violence." That was his response to the massacre at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, in Israel. He is the man, your Honor, who just about two months ago received a letter: "Thank you for your heartfelt letter of sympathy for the late Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Yitszak Rabin. Your kind words show all of us the strong bond of friendship between us. I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude. Thank you. Sincerely Shlomo Gur, Minister, Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of Israel, Washington, D.C." _________ Of interest is Mr. Rahman's echoing your assessment of his minor importance in this foul conspiracy: The indictment, this indictment does not have the value of the ink that was used in printing it, and had it been produced by a big government. The government would have resigned and the President would have changed his CIA and his FBI, because this indictment in it says that Omar Abdel Rahman, because he was the chief of an organization, of an international Jihad Organization, and the prince of that Jihad Group in America, and yet he entered and exited America. How could that have happened? And the grand jury said in the second charge of the indictment, the group of this jihad is an enemy of America because America is considered infidel. And I like to say, and this allegation Jihad Group is that one that says America is infidel. It is the word of all the Muslims around the world. One thousand million Muslims around the world agree that the United States of America is an infidel country, infidel when it comes to all measures. It is an infidel or disbeliever with all its organizations and its institutions. The Congress itself is an infidel. The White House is an infidel. The Pentagon is infidel. This courtroom is an infidel. Nobody disagrees on that except those who are tails to the United States of America, like the king Hosni Mubarak, and whoever is a tail of his, too, and like the clerics, the chief, the clerics of the state and of religion. That is what the holy Koran says. ________ These fascinating statements of the leader of the nefarious organized crime ring to which Ms. Stewart joined herself continue in like fashion; presumably Ms. Sinema, in "opposing the war" also concurs, having failed when confronted to deny her association with organized crime, to even express disgust. Let us see next what Judge Duffy had to say about these matters. You are silent, but silence does speak in these matters nolens volens.

Mr. Hannley, Please call me Dr. Wachtel, Ms Stewart is a convicted felon. To repeat: You seem to lack the same understanding of the seriousness of these crimes as did Ms. Stewart. Here's what the second circuit court had to say about Ms. Stewart's lack of remorse: 12 From the moment she committed the first act for which 13 she was convicted, through her trial, sentencing, and appeals, 14 Stewart has persisted in exhibiting what seems to be a stark 15 inability to understand the seriousness of her crimes, the 16 breadth and depth of the danger in which they placed the lives 17 and safety of unknown innocents, and the extent to which they 18 constituted an abuse of her trust and privilege as a member of 19 the bar. We cannot agree with her that the sentence imposed on 20 her was "shockingly high" so as to warrant a finding of 21 substantive unreasonableness. She was also guilty of: 13 providing and concealing 14 material support to a conspiracy to kill and kidnap persons in a 15 foreign country, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2339A and 18 U.S.C. 16 § 2; conspiracy to provide and conceal such support, in violation 17 of 18 U.S.C. § 371; http://docs.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/ca2/10-3185/10-3185-2012-06-28.pdf Only the benighted would deem such acts anything but that of a terrorist. Placing peoples lives in danger is more than merely "breaking the sequestration." One who continues to associate with a member of an organized crime ring who does such things is evil. Presumably Ms. Sinema's presumed pride stems from an absence of residual shame. Your assessment of Sheik Rahman would be hilarious were it not so disingenuous. "An elderly cleric who had been charged with terrorism . . . party to the conspiracy to bomb the WTC in 1993. Perhaps he was." PERHAPS you or I were connected with the same degree of certainty you convey to the reader, n'est-ce pas? Sheik Abdel-Rahman became the leader of Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya by the 1980's & was revered by the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, then led by Mr. Ayman al-Zawahiri, the current leader of Al Qaeda. Here is a site where you can read the sentencing statements. http://intelfiles.egoplex.com/61HKRAHS-sentencing.htm 19 DEFENDANT ABDEL RAHMAN: (Through the interpreter) 20 Thanks be to God and blessings to our Prophet 21 Mohammed. Allah almighty says never will the Jews nor the 22 Christians be pleased with you, God's blessings and peace be 23 upon you, till you follow the religion. Muslims all over the 24 world, God's mercy and blessings be with you. 25 Today when I am faced in a few minutes' time with a 1 life sentence in jail, or more than that, injustice, 2 unlawfully, with that I am facing, I am honored to join those 3 who are in jail for God's cause, with the martyrs and the good 4 doers and the saints. And then I say God is great, I have 5 won, and God is a God of Alkabah. And I say, and I am not 6 exaggerating when I say I am sent in jail as a Muslim, on 7 which side did I end up dying in God's cause? And I say, I 8 will not be terrorized by jail nor by execution, as long as 9 that is in the service of Islam. What amuses is that, just as the felonious terrorist Ms. Stewart would later do, he calls himself a free speech victim. "And please, you owe the world do not believe what America is declaring when it says freedom of belief and freedom of speech, and what it declares in its Constitution, 22 in its First Amendment. This is empty talk and there is no 23 truth in it and nobody could believe it. I was put in jail 24 because of the words. There is no freedom of word or freedom 25 of speech." Like John Gotti, Ms. Stewart deserves no moral support because she was part of an organized crime ring. That Ms. Sinema has not revealed proof of severing connections to one of the foulest of organized criminals is a telling point against her character. For all we know, she may be following Ms. Stewart's example, committing felonies on behalf of persons who would murder us in our sleep. That "perhaps" is assuredly one voters should consider.

Even I made the mistake of confusing the 1993 World Trade Center bombing with the 2001 World Trade Center crash of the planes into the World Trade Center. The incident that Ms. Stewart was involved in was the 1993 bombing, which killed six persons & injured over 1,000. Ms. Sinema apparently cared not the slightest for these persons. That their lives may not be totally forgotten, here is a link that memorializes their deaths. http://www.911memorial.org/1993-wtc-bombing-victims Each of these persons was a human being, just like you & me. How Ms. Sinema could support a felon named Lynne Stewart, criminally associated with those who murdered these people, is the real question. How could anyone do that & live with themselves? Yes, when you doubt the guilt, you can & should support a person, but when the guilty verdict falls, moral persons cut the cord. Ms. Stewart had as her defense attorney Mr. Michael Tiger, one of the finest in the country, a man chosen to defend Mr. Timothy McVeigh.

Ms. Sinema did not blow the building up, but she supported & still likely supports a felon connected to the world trade center bombing, a Ms. Stewart. Ms. Lynne Stewart is guilty of "conspiring to defraud the United States in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371 by violating SAMs imposed upon Abdel Rahman to which she had agreed to be bound; providing and concealing material support to a conspiracy to kill and kidnap persons in a foreign country, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2339A and 18 U.S.C. § 2; conspiracy to provide and conceal such support, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371; and making false statements in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001." http://docs.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/ca2/10-3185/10-3185-2012-06-28.pdf Ms. Stewart is part of organized crime, specifically an organized gang of terrorists, who blew up the world trade center. Ms. Sinema, unless she disavows Ms. Stewart & publicly denounces her is connected to organized crime with 99% certainty. Even if Ms. Sinema should denounce Ms. Stewart, unless she evidences a severance of connections to that fiend over two years ago, the chances are simply too great that she is still connected to organized crime to risk putting her in Congress. Can you at least say that someone connected with organized crime is unworthy of public office?

Ms. Sinema supported & still likely supports Ms. Stewart, who is a felon connected to the first world trade center bombing in 1993. That does not mean she helped blow the building itself up; rather it implies that Ms. Sinema is connected to organized crime, in particular to a felon named Ms. Stewart who was involved in a vicious form of organized crime, one that involved the World Trade Center bombing in 1993. Ms. Lynne Stewart is guilty of "conspiring to defraud the United States in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371 by violating SAMs imposed upon Abdel Rahman to which she had agreed to be bound; providing and concealing material support to a conspiracy to kill and kidnap persons in a foreign country, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2339A and 18 U.S.C. § 2; conspiracy to provide and conceal such support, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371; and making false statements in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001." http://docs.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/ca2/10-3185/10-3185-2012-06-28.pdf These are not lies, but are facts documented in front of your eyes. Tell you what. Can you at least say that you would find evil anyone who supported someone who attempted terrorist activities? Can you at least say that?

Good you showed up. The pairing would appear to indicate to those unacquainted with things that Ms. Sinema somehow represents the interests of Hispanics in Arizona.

Mr. Galindo is referencing Kyrsten Sinema. Anyone supporting her should be suspected of having made a deal with someone nefarious, not necessarily bearing horns. How could NOW or anyone support a person indirectly connected with the first world trade center bombing? When I asked Ms. Sinema to prove she had severed connections over two years ago to a remorseless felon connected with the first world trade center bombing in 1993, Ms. Stewart, she blocked me from her facebook page & removed my question & comments. She still has not come clean on this. No matter what you think of someone, you really should not support anyone if they are connected with organized crime. Here is material concerning Ms. Stewart: http://docs.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/ca2/10-3185/10-3185-2012-06-28.pdf From an investigator: Sinema promoted speeches by Lynne Stewart, the “lawyer for terrorists” who was convicted of helping Sheikh Rahman attempt to kill Americans and Jews outside America. http://www.jewishjournal.com/rosnersdomain/item/guest_post_can_jews_believe_kyrsten_sinema_20120805/ Note in her reply that Ms. Sinema NEVER denies being connected to the felon. Supporting such a person is outrageous. I have relatives in Mexico. I do not want someone in Congress who might do something to make it more likely that one of them will be killed by the drug kings.
