The Real Wire Tap Scandal: Baghdad Jim Mc Dermott DISmissed by SCOTUS. Can You Hear Me Now?

Share with: Everybody. Sharing is caring, ya know.

His attempt to torpedo Newt, John Boehner and other Republicans by illegally taping them has, at long last, been shut down after the US Supreme Court turned down his appeal.

U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott says he’s disappointed the U.S. Supreme Court has declined to consider his appeal.
He says he believes he had a First Amendment free speech case.
Today’s decision leaves a federal appeals court ruling in place. The court said that McDermott should not have leaked a tape-recorded phone call to newspapers. It recorded Republican leaders in 1996 discussing the ethics case against former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
The ruling upholds a previous decision ordering McDermott to pay House Minority Leader John Boehner, (BAY’-ner) of Ohio, who was one of the people on the call. The amount is still being determined but it could be more than $700,000.

  1. Yea but when is “McDermott and the Martins” heading to JAILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.

    McDermont says it was his Free Speech? So Wire Taps are alright
    if there used on Republicans, but not if used on enemies of the USA that are planning another 9/11. I got it.

  2. McDermott, who may have done wrong and broken rules in releasing the tape, was not involved with the recording or production of the case.

    DeLay, on the other hand, was waist-deep and sinking in an increasingly large corruption scandal at which he was, apparently, the center of activity.

    I’m not going to say it’s OK for one person to do something that’s “wrong” but not for another, but you’re attacking a guy who thought he was trying to expose corruption with a guy who was causing it.

    World of difference.

    Klatu said: Yea he did wrong alright.
    McCommunist broke Laws Iknow_ _ _ _ _ not rules.
    Yea he McCommunist and fellow communists supplied “THE MARTINS” with a scanner and recorder and the time and place to record Rep. John Boehner. This event in 1996 also proved for a fact that the Socialist Democrat Party and the NEW YORK TIMES are one in the same along with the “DRIVE BY” HAS BEEN MEDIA.

  4. Please Read this: The Boehner case stems from the 1996 House Ethics Committee probe of then-Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.). Two Florida Democrats, AlICE and JOHN MARTIN, who used a police scanner to intercept a conversation among Republican House members, including Gingrich and Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), about how to handle the ethics investigation. Boehner, driving in Florida at the time, was talking on a cell phone when the Martins recorded the conversation.

    The Martins gave a tape of the conversation to Rep. Karen Thurman (D-Fla.), who advised them to give it to Rep. James McDermott (D-Wash.), the ranking Democrat on the House Ethics Committee. The Martins gave the tape and an explanatory cover letter to McDermott on Jan. 8, 1997. McDermott then gave copies to a number of newspapers, including The New York Times, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper. The Times used information from the tape for a front-page story two days later.

    Boehner sued McDermott in federal court in Washington, D.C., for disclosing the contents of the tape in violation of federal wiretapping laws. On July 28, 1998, Judge Thomas F. Hogan dismissed the case, ruling that “[t]he First Amendment prevents the government from punishing the disclosure of truthful, lawfully obtained information of public significance.” On appeal, the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., reversed, and McDermott appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Ps: And we know how that came out.
    Also it was widly known that a Mole “Democrat” working in one of
    the Republican offices tipped off the Socialists about this conference call, which they supplied people with scanners and recorders to intercept the call.

  5. Oh thats right, Billary & Bill were listening to Cell Phone frequencies back in 1992 from enemies of the Clintons plotting their next attack and so forth.

    You don’t suppose Billary & Bill knew about John Boehners conference call in 1996 in advanceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?

  6. Headline: “Hillary, Eavesdropper?” Page 93 of the unreleased Gerth-Van Natta Hillary Clinton book has quite a bombshell, Kaus writes. Hillary “listened to a secretly recorded audiotape of a phone conversation of Clinton critics plotting their next attack. The tape contained discussions of another woman who might surface with allegations about an affair with Bill. Bill’s supporters monitored frequencies used by cell phones, and the tape was made during one of those monitoring sessions.” So the Clintons were out there just like that couple The Martins, driving on I-75 in Florida heading up to Jacksonville to do some Christmas shopping, and like every one of us they had a “CELL PHONE MONITOR” in their car, right there in the dashboard, and they decided to tune in, and all of a sudden, just quite by accident, they said they caught a moment of history. They listened to Newt Gingrich talking to John Boehner. By the way, who was it that got this? Was it Moran or McDermott? Yeah, it was McDermott, Baghdad Jim McDermott.

    Anyway, this couple,The Martins, just the sweetest people you’d ever want to run into, grandparents, accidentally tuning around their cell phone receiver in the car, like we all have in our cars and hear this conversation between Newt Gingrich and John Boehner, “Gee, this is history, what do we do with this Tape?” They decided to give it to Baghdad Jim McDermott, congressman from Washington, who then gave it to the New York Times, which then published the transcript of the conversation. McDermott has been in lawsuits, has lost up to 800 grand now in terms of reimbursing Boehner for all this. We find out now the Clintons have been doing the same thing. The Clintons have been engaged in illegal wiretapping. They’re monitoring cell phone frequencies so they hear calls from enemies of the Clintons plotting their next attack and so forth.

    Now, don’t get carried away here, This will not affect a single Hillary supporter or a single Drive-By editor. It’s like that picture that’s out there. Hillary was making a speech yesterday and the graphic behind her misspelled the word “tomorrow,” with two M’s in it, and Hillary is up there making a speech. Now, she didn’t misspell it, but she’s standing in front of it. If this were a Republican this would be all over the news today as in Dan Quayle and potato. So the Drive-Bys are not going to care about Hillary and monitoring people’s cell phone calls, but what this sort of shows us is this: The last three major wiretap stories on American citizens have been — well, how many of you can name the three? What are the big three wiretap stories on American citizens? Going back a number of years. No, no, no, not the NSA, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Number one, Bobby Kennedy wiretapping Martin Luther King. Yes, he did. They wiretapped Martin Luther King and they were collecting a dossier on his infidelities. The Kennedy attorney general, the Kennedy justice department was doing it. Bobby Kennedy wiretapped Martin Luther King. Then we had Baghdad Jim McDermott passing on wiretaps of Republicans, as we’ve talked about, and now Hillary Clinton wiretapping anybody she says is an enemy, monitoring their cell phone calls with a cell phone receiver. Chairman Meow, we call her, Chairman Mao, Chairman Meow strikes again. And nobody’s going to care. Well, it’s going to be in the book. The book’s not yet released, but Kaus has a copy of it and has put this on the website. We’ll see what kind of traction it gets.


    Ps: Careful talking on your cell phone fellow Republicans, Billary may hear you and then a transcript of the conversation will appear two days later on the front page of “THE PROPAGONIAN”.

  7. Iknow and his Democrat Communist Party friends have always hated the CIA. This hatred is what brought on 9/11.
    Never again _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _.

    Ps: Careful folks IKNOW, BILLARY, and “THE MARTINS” maybe listening to you on there “CELL PHONE SCANNERS”. Watch those conference calls.

  8. Klaturd: Comic genius, or complete sociopath?

    Hey, how about that new republican child molester story that I’m sure Victoria’s anxious to mention with the same zeal she uses towards those on the other side of the aisle (but probably hasn’t gotten around to yet)?

    Oh, and before I forget, let me be the first to say Happy Holidays, Klaturd. One lump of coal for you!

  9. Sorry Iknow: I don’t look at Communist Propaganda Magazines, but maybe in the near future I might get a “CELL PHONE RECEIVER” like yours and Billarys so I can listen in to you and your COMRADES in REAL TIME.

    Ps: Yea to you and your fellow Comrades


  10. Klaturd, cell phone or not, you should know that under this administration, ANY phone call may be taped or overheard, whether you like it or not. It’s the new America under King W. Perhaps you’ll use homing pigeons?

    Happy Holidays, sweetheart.

  11. Iknow, its called 9/11. President Bush wants to protect Americans from its enemies. Billary and Yourself want to go after Your Polical Enemies at home. Quite a difference. I guess you’ve forgotten about “THE FBI FILES”.
    Billarys got Problem.

    Ps: Got your Christmas Tree and Christmas Lights up????
    If not Target and Wal-Mart have
    great deals. Both Stores will say

  12. Fine, Klaturd, you win. I wished you Happy Holidays, but it wasn’t good enough for you.

    Instead, I now wish you a safe, fun, and Merry Christmas – but I hope you have an absolutely horrible New Year’s.


    I was trying to wish you both, but now, I’m only wishing you one.


  13. Baghdad Jim McDermott was one of 9 Democrats to vote against a Resolution in the Congress which passed overwelmingly for “CHRISTMAS”. Its true the “WAR ON CHRISTMAS is real and the Democratic party is behind it.

    Ps: Baghdad Jim McDermott is broke and can’t pay Rep. John Boehner. Maybe Baghdad Jim McDermott Should quit The Congress and get a Private sector Job such as at WAL-MART to pay for his crimes.
