Wingnutties out of control!

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

“Marijuana dispensaries are on the same streets as thriving churches.”

"Lamborn said evidence of a religious war also includes “abortion clinics” near “pregnancy centers” and legislators attempting to “impose radical gender theory on young students while parents in godly homes teach their children the virtue of marriage.”

But what about thriving Marijuana dispensaries on the same streets as struggling churches?
A U.S. congressman said on Saturday that marijuana dispensaries operating on the same streets as churches is “evidence” of the “spiritual war our nation is entrenched in.”
Marijuana dispensaries operating on the same streets as churches is evidence of spiritual synchronicity.

I love seeing Republicans get caught at various sorts of tomfoolery that they publicly castigate, but I don't know about this one. Seems suspiciously like it may have been engineered...

Not disagreeing, but what makes you think that?
... A native of Lebanon, Folmer was first elected to the Pennsylvania senate in 2006 and was re-elected to his fourth term in November.
Lebanon, Pennsylvania, that is.

Based on no facts whatsoever, but the article says the police got his phone using a warrant, that they got "after a tip reported that an individual had uploaded an image of child pornography to the social networking website Tumblr. Got a tip...somebody uploaded... seems a little funky. Now of course it could have been the Republican sleaze bag himself who uploaded the pics, but that's not clear.

Got it, that alone would be suspicious. I wonder if the cops found more to justify the arrest?

One thing we've learned is that sleazebags from either party can be really stupid. It's just funnier when it's a "family values" sleazebag.

Nobody likes child molesters or purveyors of child porn - even in prison, they live a miserable life at the bottom of the social heap. It will be interesting to see whether his offence is real or not. I'd think if it is, there would be some other images somewhere. It seems unlikely that he would have seen one porn pic, downloaded it, and that's all for all his life.

Child molesters and purveyors of child porn are old news. Now we have:
Pro-Trump conspiracy group takes credit for ‘eat the babies’ hoax

Near the end of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-N.Y.) town hall last night, a woman in the audience made a bizarre, criminal suggestion to combat climate change. “We’ve got to start eating babies,” she said, whipping off her jacket to reveal a shirt that read, “Save the planet/Eat the children.”

Ocasio-Cortez and the audience looked mostly stunned and uncomfortable as the woman rambled and said that people are “all pollutant,” and “even if we would bomb Russia, it’s not going to be enough” to fix the climate crisis. Finally, security escorted her out.

The outburst sent Twitter into high gear. #EatTheBabies was soon trending. Republicans wasted no time making a meal of the fact that the woman claimed to be a “climate activist” and Ocasio-Cortez supporter. The congresswoman fired back that the right-wing shouldn’t mock someone “who may have been suffering from a mental condition.”
Donald J. Trump
‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump

Donald J. Trump Retweeted Donald Trump Jr.

AOC is a Wack Job!
Donald Trump Jr.
‏Verified account @DonaldJTrumpJr

Seems like a normal AOC supporter to me.
Like so much on the right-wing internet, it turned out to be a hoax. An obscure group of conspiracy theorists who support Trump are now taking credit for the stunt....
Summary:
POSPOTUS supporters are assholes . . . and still might be suffering from a mental condition.
Republicans, Donald Trump Jr. and POSPOTUS are gullible morons.

Questions?

Ahem; it would seem that the trump cult has already surpassed the 28 year total for Democrats in less than three years. I guess that's "winning" in a weird sort of way. My bet is that the trump cult will surpass the entire 58 year combined totals before this is over. Winning!

Surpassed by a lot, depending on whether one counts the Russians.

"We’re aware some of our numbers differ from other totals, but we explain our criteria below."

Image
Figure 5. Indicted persons and entities, proven or potentially associated with the Trump campaign and Administration, from Mueller probe and referrals.

Before longtime POSPOTUS confidant Roger Stone's arrest:
"The Special Counsel has now secured guilty pleas from President Trump’s personal attorney, his campaign manager, his deputy campaign manager, a foreign policy advisor to his campaign, and his National Security Advisor. He has filed 191 charges against more than thirty individuals—almost all of whom are in President Trump’s orbit, Vladimir Putin’s orbit, or both. The President can pretend that this investigation has nothing to do with him and nothing to do with Russia, but these indictments speak for themselves."
— Congressman Jerrold Nadler
https://nadler.house.gov/press-release/ ... uilty-plea
All of Robert Mueller’s indictments and plea deals in the Russia investigation
The investigation is now complete.


Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team indicted or got guilty pleas from 34 people and three companies during their lengthy investigation, which is now complete.

That group is composed of six former Trump advisers, 26 Russian nationals, three Russian companies, one California man, and one London-based lawyer. Seven of these people (including five of the six former Trump advisers) have pleaded guilty.

If you also count investigations that Mueller originated but then referred elsewhere in the Justice Department, you can add a plea deal from one more person to the list....

The full list of Mueller indictments and plea deals

1) George Papadopoulos,
former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, was arrested in July 2017 and pleaded guilty in October 2017 to making false statements to the FBI. He got a 14-day sentence.

2) Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chair, was indicted on a total of 25 different counts by Mueller’s team, related mainly to his past work for Ukrainian politicians and his finances. He had two trials scheduled, and the first ended in a conviction on eight counts of financial crimes. To avert the second trial, Manafort struck a plea deal with Mueller in September 2018 (though Mueller’s team said in November that he breached that agreement by lying to them). He was sentenced to a combined seven and a half years in prison.

3) Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign aide and Manafort’s longtime junior business partner, was indicted on similar charges to Manafort. But in February 2018 he agreed to a plea deal with Mueller’s team, pleading guilty to just one false statements charge and one conspiracy charge.

4) Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty in December 2017 to making false statements to the FBI.

5-20) 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies were indicted on conspiracy charges, with some also being accused of identity theft. The charges related to a Russian propaganda effort designed to interfere with the 2016 campaign. The companies involved are the Internet Research Agency, often described as a “Russian troll farm,” and two other companies that helped finance it. The Russian nationals indicted include 12 of the agency’s employees and its alleged financier, Yevgeny Prigozhin.

21) Richard Pinedo: This California man pleaded guilty to an identity theft charge in connection with the Russian indictments, and has agreed to cooperate with Mueller. He was sentenced to 6 months in prison and 6 months of home detention in October 2018.

22) Alex van der Zwaan: This London lawyer pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his contacts with Rick Gates and another unnamed person based in Ukraine. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and has completed his sentence.

23) Konstantin Kilimnik: This longtime business associate of Manafort and Gates, who’s currently based in Russia, was charged alongside Manafort with attempting to obstruct justice by tampering with witnesses in Manafort’s pending case last year.

24-35) 12 Russian GRU officers: These officers of Russia’s military intelligence service were charged with crimes related to the hacking and leaking of leading Democrats’ emails in 2016.

36) Michael Cohen: In August 2018, Trump’s former lawyer pleaded guilty to 8 counts — tax and bank charges, related to his finances and taxi business, and campaign finance violations — related to hush money payments to women who alleged affairs with Donald Trump, as part of a separate investigation in New York (that Mueller had handed off). But in November, he made a plea deal with Mueller too, for lying to Congress about efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

37) Roger Stone: In January 2019, Mueller indicted longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone on 7 counts. He accused Stone of lying to the House Intelligence Committee about his efforts to get in touch with WikiLeaks during the campaign, and tampering with a witness who could have debunked his story.

Finally, there is one other person Mueller initially investigated, but handed over to others in the Justice Department to charge: Sam Patten. This Republican operative and lobbyist pleaded guilty to not registering as a foreign agent with his work for Ukrainian political bigwigs, and agreed to cooperate with the government.

That’s the full list, but we’ll delve into the charges in a bit more detail below....
Paraphrased from a different source:
Indictments of top aides:
Nixon: 12 in 6 years
Bill Clinton: 3 in 8 years
Obama: 1 in 8 years (Republican/Independent Gen. David Petraeus’ misdemeanor)
President* Trump: 6 in 2.5 years
President* Trump's pace is worse than the worst POTUS, Nixon, and worse than any Dem.

I started to click on the "donate now" button in order to send them a message but figured I'd have to give them information I don't want to give them. Maybe in a day or two I'll get loaded up on beer and do a call in donation for ten thousand dollars and just give them completely false information with a fake account number for a fake bank card. I have one of those throw away phones that's never been used. But I am not sure if doing this thing would constitute bank or wire fraud instead of just being what I consider Roger deserves. Wait, I'll just tell them I'm Rudy.

Well, shucks, I read a different story about this but it was the same sort of lunacy. It seems county commissioner Warren Hurst thinks it's awful that a "queer" is running for president and that his rights as a white man are being taken away. It fucking brings tears to the eyes, don't it? One person in the commissioners meeting spoke out against Warren but most of the rest applauded him. I tried to find his email address to send him a fine unambiguous note but only came up with his address and phone number. I may set my alarm for 3am and give him a call, ask him if he's an old stupid fucking white man who lost his rights and that I have them here with me. But I may think of something else to say between now and then. In any case, if anyone else would like to give him a call or write to him, this is how you do it.

Be sure and mention that a guy in Kingsport has his missing white man's rights and has been beating hell out of them out back for six days. ok
