No You Di’int: Hezbollah Republican Congressman Who Denounces Earmarks . . . is Earmark Pimp

By Debbie Schlussel
Longtime readers know of my, um, “affinity” for Jihad Darrell–Republican Congressman Darrell Issa, the gazillionaire Hezbollah and Arafat fan from San Diego.
Issa has had people call me and offer trips to meet him. He’s sent a “dossier” against me (an ineffective binder of my articles on him, paid for by your tax dollars and compiled by his staff) to conservative David Horowitz, trying to get FrontPageMag not to run my stuff on him (David stood by me). And he’s accused me of being the cause of alleged attempts on his life, rather than his own comments siding with terrorists. He’s also a former luxury car thief, liar about his military service, arsonist and insurance defrauder, and threatened one of his employees, reportedly at gunpoint. It’s because of this that my father worried when I acquired the DarrellIssa.net site (Jihad D forgot to renew it).

Jihad Darrell’s Crying Game: Pro-Hezbollah Rep. Darrell Issa Pimps Us Out on Earmarks

And that’s not to mention his strong support for Hezbollah and his former job as Yasser Arafat’s taste-tester and hand-model evaluator. Oh, and don’t forget that Jihad D said that 9/11 was “simply a plane crash.” I’ve detailed a good deal of this previously on this site and in the New York Post, as well as his cry-fest when Karl Rove made him drop out of the race for the California gubernatorial recall race.
Now, Issa–who once said the biggest problem with the Republican Party was its positions on guns and abortion–is trying to position himself to right of everyone. He has ambitions (which will likely never be realized), and he now realizes that you can’t get there from the RINO left.
So, he’s come out loudly against earmarks (gee, what a novel position). Problem is, Issa is something of an Earmark Pimp.
Well, it wouldn’t be the first–or the last–time that Jihad Darrell fed us his hypocrisy soup:

U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista, vowed Tuesday not to ask for any more special project funding, also known as earmarks, until the funding-allocation process is reformed. . . .
“After eight years in office, it’s become clear to me that projects are not judged on the merits, but on the seniority and power of the requesting member or lobbyist,” he said.
Last year, Issa requested millions for projects in his district under a spending bill finally approved Tuesday by the U.S. Senate. Issa’s requests totaled $7.6 million, $2.1 million of which was for individual requests, the remainder in concert with other members of Congress, according to an analysis by the Washington watchdog group Taxpayers for Common Sense. . . .
Steve Ellis, vice president of Taxpayers for Common Sense, said he was pleased to hear Issa’s announcement.
“The thing is that the first step towards recovery is admitting that you have a problem,” Ellis said.

Ha. That’s funny, Steve. But the problem is Darrell Issa. And the voters of the San Diego area still haven’t admitted it. They need an intervention about this pan-terrorist fraud.
Whatta hypocrite. Not to mention, a maggot.

Jihad Darrell has lots of good Republican company. They go in front of the cameras to denounce earmarks and excess spending but when no one’s looking, they quietly pocket it for their district or state. Principle?
No – its “follow the money.”

I work in Jihad Darrell’s District. I’d like to see where all the Pork Money has gone. Is there a place to see the list of projects he’s thrown money at in the 49th Congressional District?
[YS: HE CLAIMS IT’S ON HIS WEBSITE AND IT’S DEFINITELY ON THE TAXPAYER’S WEBSITE I LINK ABOVE. DS]

Nice job on the site address grab! That’s awesome!

Jihad Darrell always seems to play for the camera and the media. Issa is for Issa. I have always found that story about Issa pulling a gun on someone insane. The “Darkside of Darrell”, coming to a movie theater near you. I wouldn’t doubt he would do something like that. It was brought up during his short run for governor. I believe I did hear he is going to back Meg Whitman for governor in 2010. I thought he might make a second run. Thankfully not. You have some great articles about him.

I used to live in California. They just “balanced” the budget with billions of dollars in new taxes and a phony spending cap to let them spend as much as they want. Who broke a promise and voted for the new taxes? The Republicans! All their leading gubernatorial candidates are liberals and the one who endorsed the new budget is none other than pan-Islamist panderer Tom Campbell. Sorta the Mike Cox of California. That’s the GOP, adrift in the political wilderness across the country.

Debbie, maybe you can answer this for me. Isn’t Issa a Christian Arab? Why, WHY, would a Christian Arab, given what is being done to them in the Middle East for the past 1400 years, be a lackey to the Islamics??
[ND: DON’T ASK ME. ASK THEM. THERE ARE PLENTY OF CHRISTIAN ARABS WHO ARE WATER CARRIERS FOR ISLAM. ISSA, SPENCER ABRAHAM, HANAN ASHRAWI, MARY ROSE OAKAR, THE LATE EDWARD SAID, THE LATE GEORGE HABASH, ETC. AND THEN THERE ARE THE CHRISTIAN ARABS WHO PIMP US FOR MONEY, PRETENDING TO BE ON OUR SIDE WHEN IT’S PROFITABLE FOR THEM–HANAN TUDOR A/K/A “BRIGITTE GABRIEL” (WHO RECENTLY HELPED AND RAISED MONEY FOR A GROUP THAT DEFENDED MUSLIM DEATH THREATS ON MY LIFE), JOSEPH FARAH, ETC. AND THEN THERE ARE SOME SINCERE CHRISTIAN ARABS WHO DON’T DO THIS AS A MONEY-MAKING PIMPING BUSINESS–AND THEY ARE THE VOICELESS ONES. DS]

The issue of “earmarks” is just a distraction from far more important issues. A more truthful analysis of earmarks can be heard here:
