Wing-nut Site “Proves” Planned Parenthood Killer is a Liberal (VIDEO)

terroristcolFIYesterday (11/28/15), I wrote a post on the Regressive reaction to the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood murders. The reaction was about what I expected from these troglodytes. It ran the gamut from trying to claim it was all a botched bank robbery, to a call for Planned Parenthood to apologize for saying something they hadn’t said, to calling the murderer a hero, to (altogether now) “IT’S OBAMA’S FAULT!” The only claim I didn’t run across was that a liberal was responsible for the killings.

I didn’t look hard enough! Enter stage right (extreeeeme right): “AMERICA’S FREEDOM FREEDUMB FIGHTERS

AFF, to those of its readers that struggle with words over four letters, is a fountain of male bovine fecal matter. I’ll treat(?) you to a quick glance at some of the site’s head (as in toilet) lines before I get to the subject of this rant:


  • Liberal COWARDS Make SICKENING Move In Middle Of The Night To DESTROY America’s Heritage… (That one was about some state workers moving a 10 Commandments monument from the Oklahoma Capitol grounds to a conservative think(?) tank’s grounds.)
  • ATHEISTS DECLARE ALL OUT WAR! NOW THEY’RE TARGETING YOUR CHILDREN! (Atheists had the audacity to put up the billboard below.)atheists
  • OUTRAGEOUS!!! Islamic group gets go-ahead to cut crosses off NY church! (It seems that the church was sold  to an Isamic group for conversion to a Mosque named “The Mosque of Jesus Son of Mary” and the cross isn’t an Islamic icon.)
  • Three Of These Republican Presidential Candidates DON’T Own A Gun… (Ah yes, what’s a better place for a post about guns than under “Religion”.)


  • ANOTHER BANKER FOUND DEAD IN APPARENT MURDER-SUICIDE (VIDEO) (They’re entertained by a murder-suicide? That’s SICK!)

And finally, what could be more apropos for an entertainment post than this;


There’s tons more, but I think you’ve got the flavor and I need to get back on point.

  • BOMBSHELL: Colorado Shooter Is A LEFT-WING LIBERAL LUNATIC! Here’s The BIZARRE Part(Actually, as you’ll notice, the whole damn post is BIZZARE!)

The post starts out by purporting to show a voter registration form in which the shooter (I refuse to publicize the asshole’s name!)  claims to be female. However, the links on the form don’t link so there’s no way to confirm that it’s real. Even if it is real, which I have my doubts, he could have just been drunk or confused. (He doesn’t appear to be the brightest bulb in the tulip patch.)

The post writer then states that the killings may not have had anything to do with Planned Parenthood.

One FACT liberals are missing is that the shooting actually began at a nearby Chase Bank. It’s entirely possible his motives had nothing to do with Planned Parenthood.

The problem with that claim is that it’s a lie. According to the Colorado Springs Police Department,

This incident did start with the Planned Parenthood building.

The post then goes on to highlight his criminal past which mostly consists of minor traffic violations, a couple counts of cruelty to animals and a “peeping tom” charge. He was found innocent in the cruelty charges and the “peeping tom” charge was dropped.

While the above may not prove one thing or another to you and me, the post writer knows better.

Now, being A CHRISTIAN RIGHT WINGER myself, I consider myself to be a good judge of who is a right wing patriot and who is a liberal scumbag.

The writer then proceeds to list the “proofs” that the domestic terrorist isn’t a white right-wing christian domestic terrorist after all, he’s a white left-wing christian domestic terrorist.

  1. A man who thinks he’s a woman- LIBERAL
  2. A man who commits acts of cruelty to animals- LIBERAL
  3. Being a ‘peeping Tom’DEFINITELY A LIBERAL

You won’t see the liberal lamestream media report this as they are hell bent on blaming the right wing Christian terrorist because after all, we are the biggest threat to America, right?

Look, they want to take our guns, our religion, our rights and transform America into a socialist cesspool. Liberals are scumbags.

There you have it folks, proof positive (if your I.Q. is 65 or lower) that the terrorist isn’t a right-winger, he’s a damned Libtard!

Of course, there is the inconvenient (for the post writer) fact that according to a police official, the domestic terrorist made a comment about “no more baby parts” after his arrest. For a bit more on that, check out Planned Parenthood Domestic Terrorist: ‘No More Baby Parts’.

Regressive Reaction to the Planned Parenthood Murders


In the wake of the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood murders, the Regressive reaction is about what you’d expect. (Which is, in itself, a sad commentary of the state of this nation.)

The first attempt at claiming this wasn’t a terrorist attack on PP (Which it is!*) was Breitbart and others claiming the shooter was a bank robber, chased away from Chase. (Four “Pinocchios” on that one.)

According to the Colorado Springs Police Department,

This incident did start with the Planned Parenthood building.

As the situation developed, the CEO of Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains released a statement that said in part,

We don’t yet know the full circumstances and motives behind this criminal action, and we don’t yet know if Planned Parenthood was in fact the target of this attack.

In response, while the shooting was still going on in the Planned Parenthood building, Regressive congressman, Adam Kinzinger, went on CNN to demand an apology from Planned Parenthood if the killing wasn’t about Planned Parenthood. (Which she hadn’t said it was.)

If we find out he was not targeting Planned Parenthood, I would fully expect an apology from the Planned Parenthood director for saying that.

So, since Planned Parenthood was the target, can we expect an apology from congressman, Andam Kinzinger? (Don’t hold your breath!)B

While it unfolded, both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders expressed their support of Planned Parenthood.

Today and every day, we – Hillary

We proudly of Colorado Springs and the brave law enforcement personnel who fought to protect it. – Bernie

And, from the passengers on the “Bozo Bus,” we heard                                              (cue the crickets.)

Given their history of spewing verbal diarrhea, it’s probably for the best that they kept their traps shut. Although, in fairness, Teddy Cruz did issue a tweet,

Praying for the loved ones of those killed, those injured & first responders who bravely got the situation under control in Colorado Springs.

(Because praying helps so much more than actually taking action to reduce the number of these situations.)

And then came the avalanche of twits tweeting on twitter:

Is it a drone free zone? Bomb the planned death center.

Well I guess as active shooters go, you can’t choose a better place to have your little rampage

Too bad the abortion doctor and the nursing staff weren’t all killed.

planned parenthood kills a million babies and no one bats and eye. but 1 brave hero tries to put a stop to that, everybody loses their minds.

It’s probably a black guy that couldn’t get a 10 piece chicken nugget from McDonalds going on a rampage….

their only shooting liberals  so like who really cares

Stupid  PP is a hard target, wait for them to leave and follow them home and get them there.

PlannedParenthood butchers babies and you cry terrorism over a lone gunman.

PlannedParenthood is upset they cannot sell police officer’s body parts.

And, you knew this one was coming.

obama set this one up!!!! he is so sick!!!

Of course this last comment was right up Bullshit Mtn’s alley. (If a mountain can have an alley.) They brought on one of their “experts” (an ex-cop) who had this to say,

Again, this is our president acting like a fool. I mean to see something like this, we noticed when the attacks occurred in Paris, when the cops were in their car getting attacked, we have to prepare ourselves. This is a war. We’re against… terrorists are against this country.

He’s partially right. This was a terrorist act. But, guess what? The terrorist wasn’t ISIS, an Syrian refugee, a Muslim or even a black. He’s a white “christian.”

This is the direct result of the lies and demagoguery of the Regressive politicians, pundits and political organizations. The blood is on their hands, although they’ll refuse to take any blame. In fact, if the past is any indication, they will decide that this wasn’t a terrorist act, it was simply a shooting by a poor mentally disturbed “lone wolf.”

Screwy Louie Gohmert: The Terrorists Are Already Here

Screwy Louie’s back! (Actually, he never went away, but I’ve been trying my best to ignore him.)

Louie “Goober” Gomert, the former Chief Justice on Texas’s 12th Court of Appeals and multi-time winner of the San Antonio Current’s “Bonehead Quote of the Week” award, stopped by Breitbart for a little refugee bashing. He was interviewed on Breitbart News Daily by Stephen Bannon, Breitbart’s Executive Chairman.

When the subject of the 8 Syrians, 5 Pakistanis and an Afghani supposedly arrested while trying to sneak in the U.S. came up, Louie chimed in that he was glad,

people are waking up across the country to what’s been going on for quite some time.

Before we proceed, the FBI released this statement about the 5 Pakistanis and the Afghani that were apprehended crossing the border:

U.S. Border Patrol agents in Sonoita, Arizona, apprehended five Pakistani nationals and one Afghan national Monday. Agents also arrested two smugglers accompanying the group. As a standard procedure, agents processed the six individuals and checked their identities against numerous law enforcement and national security related databases. Records checks revealed no derogatory information about the individuals. The individuals are currently in federal custody.

They were trying to sneak in, however that in no way proves they are terrorists. We apprehend illegal immigrants daily. These just happened to be committing the crime of being Muslims.

As for the (gasp!) Syrians? Sorry, but they weren’t even trying to sneak in. Here’s the story on that: The two sets of parents and four children “presented themselves at the port of entry in Laredo” and told agents from Customs and Border Protection they wanted to enter the country. (Somehow, that doesn’t quite sound like the modus operandi of terrorists.)

Back to Goober.
They’re here, they’re here, there is no question, they’re here, that’s been confirmed over and over but it’s got to stop, it’s got to stop.

 Earth to idiot: As Chuck Todd pointed out on yesterday’s (11/22/15) Meet the Press,

There’s been nearly 785,000 refugees who have been admitted to the United States since 9/11. Only about a dozen — roughly one one thousandths of 1 percent — have been arrested or removed from the U.S. due to terrorism concerns. None of those folks removed were Syrian, by the way.

For someone who fancies himself an expert on the subject, you’d think Goober would know that. And, if he does know that, then he’s just flat-ass lying!

Goober rambled on,

This president wanted to fundamentally transform America and he’s been doing it. Unfortunately, he’s been doing it by looking the other way at the border.

(So, I guess all those Border Patrol Agents strung out along the border are just trying to improve their tans.)
Goober went on to say that the FBI Director consistently says there’s no guaranteed way to know who any incoming Syrian refugees “really” are, so it’s imperative to defund the Syrian refugee program completely.
Once again, Earth to idiot: here’s what it really takes for a refugee to be allowed admittance. It’ a process that can take up to a couple of years. Particularly notice steps 3,4&5.wh_blog_refugee_workflow_1120bBeing the fair and balanced person that I am, I will have to somewhat agree with the statement that terrorists are already here. Louie, however, neglects to mention that for the last two decades they are predominantly, white, right-wing fake “Christians.11252248_498547676997557_5075398934958670050_n
If you’ve got the stomach for it, here’s Goober’s entire interview: (Byo Pepto Bismol.)


Is Sex Star Suing Josh Duggar For Abuse?

Danica DillonBack in September, I wrote a post (Is Josh Duggar Into ‘Rough Sex’ Adultery?) about Josh’s sexual “indiscretions” with porn star, Danica Dillon. In describing the encounter, Danica had this to say,

He was manhandling me, basically tossing me around like I was a rag doll. It was very traumatic. I’ve had rough sex before, but this was terrifying.

And Josh, being the gentleman that he isn’t, not only “stiffed” her sexually with his wrapless willie, he also “stiffed” her for $500 of her $1,500 fee. Btw, at the time, Josh was a lobbyist for the Family Research Council. (You know, the pro-marriage “Family Values” group.) Oh, and wifey Anna was pregnant at the time with their fourth child.

He later apologized for the roughness and had a second session with her. (I’m assuming she got the money up front that time.

I looks like the apology wasn’t quite enough! (About $500,000 short of enough.)

Despite his apology, according to Ms Dillon, who’s real name is Ashley Stamm-Northup, during the second session, “he engaged in identical tortious conduct” causing her severe emotional and physical damages.

According to “In Touch Weekly,” the prime source of many of the Duggar’s public relations woes since breaking the story about Josh’s original pedophilia experiments, Danica is suing Josh for Battery, to the tune of $500,

final-josh-court-doc3In the lawsuit, which was filed on Tuesday (11/17/15), Ms Dillon states that Duggar “manhandled” her to the point that she “felt as if she were being raped by the defendant” and that she is currently being treated for severe anxiety by a psychiatrist.

In an interview with “People”, her attorney, Marc Frumer said,

While sex may be consensual, an assault and battery is clearly beyond the scope of any consent.

He also stated that he expects the case to be resolved in 9 to 18 months.

No comment, so far, from the Duggars, their attorney, or their public relations flack.

So, in regard to the headline, it looks like the answer is “Yup!”

And, may I add that it couldn’t happen to a more deserving anal pit.

Cruz: ‘No meaningful risk’ of Christians committing terrorism

KKK Cross

Ted Cruz’s latest verbal bovine bowel movement is a doozy! And this is a man renowned world-wide for his oral shits.

There is no meaningful risk of Christians committing acts of terror. If there were a group of radical Christians pledging to murder anyone who had a different religious view than they, we would have a different national security situation.

Since 9/11, Regressives have used Islamophobia to stir up fear (and votes). Since the Paris bombings, they’ve been focused on the Syrian refugees fleeing from the horrors of civil war and especially ISIS, the group that claims responsibility for the bombings. However, since the ISIS terrorists are Islamic and the refugees are Islamic, they must be in cahoots. (In real life, Cahoots (Crisis Assistance Helping Out On The Streets) is a crisis center in Eugene, Oregon.) 

This has resulted in a number of (mostly red state) governors that have declared that they would not allow any Islamic refugees in their states. (Chris Christie said he wouldn’t even let 5 year old Muslims into New Jersey.) Unfortunately for them, they can’t do a damn thing about it, except yell. The Constitution gives that power to the federal government, not the states. (See: Hines v. Davidowitz, the Refugee Act of 1980. and/or Arizona v. United States.)

There have also been Regressive presidential wannabes almost unanimously screaming that we should shut our doors to the refugees, or at the most, only let in those of the “Christian” persuasion.

Which brings us back to Teddy and his incredible claim that there’s no risk of “Christian terrorism.” He uttered the above quote to a South Carolina audience to justify that only Syrian Christians should be admitted. 12208597_1000832476676473_2021091142279352516_nHe went on to claim that at least one of the Paris terrorists was a refugee. So, naturally, we couldn’t take the chance of several coming to the U.S. However, the evidence suggests that the Syrian visa that was found, is a fake.

Now, I know he’s as much Cuban/Canadian as he is American, but as a senator, you’d think he’d know a bit more American history as well as current events. However, it seems that he doesn’t. (Or he’s just plain lying!) In either case, let me bring him up to speed on this.

First, the one everybody knows about, but is actually one of the smaller groups (est 6000 +/-) nowadays: the KKK. For a bit of history on the first two incarnations of the KKK, check out “The Tea Potty (pt. 2 The Knights in Cotton Armor).” While their history up to the 60’s is one of extreme violence, nowadays, while still a “hate group,” they’re mostly mouth.

However, there have been a plethora of “Christian” groups that have risen in their place. Under the umbrella of the Christian Identity Movement are such groups as The Army of God, Aryan Nations and The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord.

The Army of God has been responsible for:

  • Killing Dr. David Gunn, an OB-GYN;
  • Killing Dr. John Britton and his bodyguard James Barrett;
  • Killing two Planned Parenthood receptionists in Brookline MA;
  • The Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta;
  • Killing Dr. George Tiller.

Aryan Nations, and its subset, The Order, has been responsible for:

  • An $3.6 million armored car robbery, to fund a hoped-for race war;
  • The murder of Denver talk radio host Alan Berg;
  • Firing more than 70 rounds from a submachine gun at a Jewish community center in Los Angeles, wounding five people and then killing a Filipino-American postal worker.

The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord has been responsible for:

  • The firebombing of an Indiana synagogue;
  • The arson of a Missouri church;
  • An attempted bombing of a pipeline supplying Chicago with natural gas.

The Oklahoma City bomber, Timothy McVeigh, was heavily influenced by the Christian Identity Movement. Another Identity sympathizer, Jim David Adkisson, entered the Knoxville Unitarian Universalist Church and interrupted a children’s play with a hail of gunfire, killing two and injuring 7 others.

Then there are the “lone wolves” of the Phinehas Priesthood. The Phinehas Priesthood is not an actual organization. There isn’t a “Phinehas Church” per se. You can belong to any Christian church, (preferably one of the wing-nut ones). To become a Phinehas Priest, you just have to consider yourself one. They’ve been responsible for:

  • Murdering a man because he had a Mexican girlfriend;
  • Bombings from Washington state to Florida and beyond;
  • 22 Bank robberies in seven states
  • Shooting up a bank and police station and the attempted arson of a Mexican Consulate.

There’s more groups and more acts of terror, but you get the message.

Too bad Cruz doesn’t!


Silly Sarah Palin On CBS Sunday = Outrageous Hilarity! (VIDEOS)

Palin on CBS

Sarah Palin, Caribou-boo Barbie herself, came back to CBS for an interview with Tracy Smith. Hilarity ensued!

You might remember that time back in 2008 when she showed up for an interview with Katie Couric. It was an absolute disaster!

Couric: “When it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this, to stay informed and to understand the world?
Palin: “I’ve read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media -”
Couric: “But like, which ones specifically? I’m curious that you -”
Palin: “Um, all of ’em, any of ’em that, um, have, have been in front of me over all these years. Um, I have —
Couric: “Can you name a few?”
Palin: “I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news. Alaska isn’t a foreign country, where it’s kinda suggested, it seems like, ‘Wow, how could you keep in touch with the rest of Washington D.C. may be thinking and doing when you live up in Alaska?

Needless to say, that came up in her latest interview. Sister Sarah admitted she gave a “crappy answer.” (Gee, it’s only taken her seven years to figure that out.)

Sure, yeah. I had a crappy answer. But it was a fair question. I didn’t like, though, the way that, forever then in these seven years, that interview has kind of been stamped on my forehead as, ‘she’s an idiot. I just think, in the context of the whole ball of wax that day — or two days — of an interview and editing, it wasn’t real fun.

Several other subjects came up in her interview:


Smith: You mentioned that one of your disappointments this year was Bristol’s wedding falling through…That can’t be how you saw this playing out — unmarried and pregnant again?…Of course, there are those who say, ‘Come on, this goes against everything you stand for.’

Palin: Well, the cool thing about puttin’ your faith in God is, He certainly is a God of second chances, and third, and fourth, and fifth chances. I screw up all the time.

(No mention of “Just say NO,” I notice. Nor, of the bunch of bucks Bristol was paid for hypocritically pushing the abstinence nonsense.)


He really does remind me of one of my uncles. And, you know, you hear that, that he’s like the uncle who maybe lives in your attic and … comes down once in a while to entertain at a party. So, I get a kick out of him because he, too, is candid, right?

(Of course, Bernie makes sense when he’s candid. That’s hardly ever said of the Half-Baked Alaskan.)


Right now, I would say that fighter is Donald Trump, because he’s got nothin’ to lose. He doesn’t have to be bought or sold, obviously, especially when it comes to contributions. He is his own man.

(I guess His Hairness forgot to tell her that he was looking for campaign donors.)


Smith: You’re willing to run again?

Palin: I’d be willing. That’s a good way to put it.

She’d already told CNN’s Jake Tapper that she’d like to head up the Energy Department.

I’d get rid of [the Energy Department]. And I’d let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. “If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job, but it would be … really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge.

That way, she wouldn’t have to stick around very long. (She seems to tire easily doing anything but self promotion.)

Here’s the interview, courtesy of Rawstory:

Thousands Resign From Mormon Church After Anti-Gay Fail

Another Mormon TempleAbout a week ago (November 6th, to be exact.) I wrote a post on the latest bit of Mormon bigotry toward the LGBT community. It seems, in their infinitesimal wisdom, church leaders decided that children of gay parents would not be allowed to join the church unless they renounced their parents.

If you missed reading that post, (Shame on you!) here’s they had to say in their proclamation:

A natural or adopted child of a parent living in a same-gender relationship, whether the couple is married or cohabiting, may not receive a name and a blessing. Nor can the child be baptized and confirmed, ordained, or recommended for missionary service.

Then they listed the exception requirements.

  • The child accepts and is committed to live the teachings and doctrine of the Church, and specifically disavows the practice of same-gender cohabitation and marriage. 
  • The child is of legal age and does not live with a parent who has lived or currently lives in a same-gender cohabitation relationship or marriage.

Also, If you have the audacity to marry someone with the same genital plumbing, you are guilty of apostasy.

As might be expected, this caused quite a stir in the LGBT community, as well as the “straight” population as well. (At least, the progressive portion of the “straight” population. The Religious Wrong anal pits were all for the idea.) What wasn’t expected is that it also caused a stir in the Mormon community.

The backlash started immediately.

A FaceBook page was set up to publicize an resignation event to be held yesterday (11/14/15). It accumulated over 2300 “interested” guests.12191608_10101742749872457_2192142737496543696_n

During the following week, one Salt Lake City attorney said he had 1500 resignations already in the works. And, that was just one attorney. As to how many others were starting the process is hard to tell. The church doesn’t like to talk about losing members, only gaining them. Btw, as of 12/31/14, the church claimed 15,372,337 members, but by most accounts, active members only comprise about 38% of that number. (About 5,840,000) A lot of us (yes, me included) never get around to telling the church to go take a hike. In any case, it must be a large enough number to cause the church leaders to walk the nonsense back a bit.

Friday, the church offered a “clarification.”

Our concern with respect to children is their current and future well-being and the harmony of their home environment. The provisions of Handbook 1, Section 16.13, that restrict priesthood ordinances for minors, apply only to those children whose primary residence is with a couple living in a same-gender marriage or similar relationship.

When a child living with such a same-gender couple has already been baptized and is actively participating in the Church, provisions of Section 16.13 do not require that his or her membership activities or priesthood privileges be curtailed or that further ordinances be withheld.

All children may receive priesthood blessings of healing and spiritual guidance.

So, their “clarification” was that if minors in same-sex households were already in, they wouldn’t kick them out. How big(ot) of them! Btw, the “Handbook” that is mentioned, is for the use of church leaders. It’s not something that regular members would normally read.

They also released a “spin” video on the subject.

Evidently, that wasn’t good enough for those fed up with the church’s anti-gay stance.

Yesterday, a crowd gathered in Salt Lake City’s City Creek Park to sign letters of resignation to be forwarded to the church. Event organizer, Lauren McNamara, stated,

The energy has been really positive and supportive We may have even reached 2,000…We want this event to make a statement to the church today that its treatment of those we love has led us to this moment.

Steve Holbrook of Post-Mormons and Friends, told the Salt Lake Tribune,

Resigning is a really big step for people, because the church has filled so much of their life. This is not a statement necessarily against the church. We just disagree with some of the directions the church has been going in.

The church owned “Deseret News” tried to downplay the event by claiming that a very small percentage of members were actually resigning. (That’s probably true. Most, like me, just leave without saying goodbye.) And besides, most, of the people resigning were younger Mormons, inactive members or activists.  They quoted “Apostle” Quentin Cook,

Some have asserted that more members are leaving the church today and that there is more doubt and unbelief than in the past. This is simply not true.

Stay tuned!

Bristol Palin Outraged Killing A White Child Isn’t Media Worthy

BristolHas it been a whole three days since Bristol (Sarah-in-training) Palin has inserted herself in the news cycle? Wow! How time passes without her mouth farts to listen to. Conversely, how time stretches when she opens her yapper.

Well, she’s back and once again blathering about something she obviously doesn’t know a damn thing about. (So, what else is new?)

Her latest post (probably written by a ghostwriter, since all the words are spelled correctly) was headlined “Police Kill Autistic Boy for No Reason – Media Yawns, Because Child Wasn’t Black“.

After expressing her heartbreak over the shooting and giving a bit of detail, she gets to her point.

Why is this story not all over the media? If the child had been black, would it  have received more acknowledgement?

Since there have been over 1000 media accounts of the shooting, including ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, BBC, Fox and People Magazine, one would have to assume that she keeps up with the news about as much as her mother. Or, maybe she just sees this as another vehicle to spread her nonsense. She even used this screen shot from the “yawning media” to illustrate her blog. police-officers-e1447213500311Or, just possibly, could part of her unstated outrage be because the shooters were not Caucasian and the victim was? I’ve never read of her being “heartbroken” over the death of a Black child.

She closes out her post with,

I wish more people really thought “all lives matter.”  The injustice of it all is heart wrenching. Please join me in praying for the family of this sweet little boy and his father.

I’ll close out this post with a few points;

  1. Bristol should really do a bit more reading. (Maybe she can get someone to help her with the big (over four letter) words.)
  2. Most people do think that “all lives matter.”
  3. Praying isn’t going to do a damn thing to help anyone.
  4. The only way to change situations like this is to weed out the bad cops. In 2011, Stafford was charged with aggravated rape and both Stafford and Greenhouse are defendants in an excessive force lawsuit. In fact, if you take a look at the background of most cops that have killed unarmed individuals, you’ll find a lot of black marks in their records.

Is Chris Christie’s Email Scandal A Bridge To Prison?

Chris Crappy Bridgegate

The White House or the “Big House?” That is the question!

I think we can safely rule out the White House. Chris Christie’s campaign was already plowing forward with the raging speed of a car stuck on a Fort Lee on-ramp to the George Washington bridge. You might say Chris’s campaign was a bridge too far. The one-time hot prospect for the Regressive’s presidential wannabe nomination has been trying his best to put his BridgeGate scandal behind him. He wanted everyone to just fogetaboutit. After his taxpayer-paid ($7.75 million) exoneration by his favorite law firm, he declared the scandal wasn’t a scandal and it was all over anyway.

Btw, that “exoneration” is still under investigation.

His attacks on Hillary’s so-called “email scandal.” may turn out to be one of his more ironic attention distracters.

Refering to Clinton, back in May, Chris had this to say,

If I had come out the day after the BridgeGate thing was announced and said, ‘By the way, all my emails are on a private server and I deleted a whole bunch of them and I destroyed the server. But you need to take my word for it, the emails had nothing to do with the bridge stuff.’ Can you only imagine what the reaction would’ve been? Yet today we don’t talk about the email situation with Secretary Clinton anymore. It’s like it went away. So I do believe that there is an absolute bias and a rush to judgment.

In August, Christie was still going at it!

The real story is this — I believe in my heart — that Hillary Clinton doesn’t want us to know what she’s doing. She believes we don’t have a right to know. When I’m president of the United States, you have a right to know what your president is doing, and we have the obligation to be held accountable for what we’re doing…I had a private email account, but I didn’t do my business on a private email account.

It turns out that Christie had two private email accounts and was using at least one for government matters. At first he said it was an error on the part of one of his staff, was only a few and they weren’t important anyway, because he doesn’t even remember what was in the emails. Besides, as Christie said back in March,

There is no law in New Jersey that requires you to do state business on a state email account.

Flash forward to this last Tuesday (11/10/15).

Lawyers for two defendants, (Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly) in the upcoming trial over the on-ramp closures, filed motions complaining that Christie had failed to provide “critical facts essential to their ability to prepare for trial.”

In the motions, Christie is accused of failing to provide 9,428 emails (public and private) and documents.

All told, Christie’s taxpayer-funded attorneys at the Gibson Dunn law firm have withheld or redacted 9,428 emails and other documents. The reasons given include “campaign strategy” and “press strategy.”

As the defense lawyers explained to WMYC,

Christie’s legal team is inappropriately hiding thousands of documents related to the Bridgegate scandal, the two defense lawyers argued in briefs filed late Tuesday. Among the hidden documents, the lawyers say, are emails to and from the governor’s personal and work email accounts and a calendar entry from the week when an order was delivered to close lanes at the George Washington Bridge in 2013.

They also complained that the material they were given was not electronically searchable and thousands of pages were redacted.

The U.S. Attorney investigating the closures did not oppose the defense attorneys’ request.


Writer’s note: While covering all the broad information in this situation, I have not gotten into all the minutiae involved, or you’d be reading this post from now until Christmas. If you want to dive deeper, follow the links.  This is a good place to start.

Whatever Happened to the Republican Party?

2016_republican_clown_car_parade_-_trump_exta_special_edition_18739683269As I’ve been watching the Bozo Broadcast (aka the Regressive Presidential Wannabe Nerfball Debate) I’ve been thinking (Contrary to all evidence, I do that once in a while.) about the Republican Party of my youth.

I’m an “old fart”! At least that’s what my kids used to call me (and that was 20 years ago).

I grew up fascinated with politics. I started paying attention in 1952, when I was nine. Joe McCarthy was about on his way out, (Who knew he’d come back as Ted Cruz?) and Eisenhower had just been elected.

For those of you who were not around, Ike was responsible for the interstate highway system. He sponsored and signed the 1st civil rights legislation since Reconstruction. He balanced the budget three times and he ended the Korean War.

Sounds like a damn good Democrat. Except that he was a Republican. (Btw, that “foreign-born?, socialist?, commie?, whatever?, Muslim, Murica hater” in office now, is politically just a bit to the right of Ike.)

Yes, the Republican party of the time was conservative and pro-business, but most of them were pro-American as well. They understood governing requires compromise and no side gets everything they want.

I grew up in Arizona. Carl Hayden (Dem-AZ) was “Dean of the Senate” and the junior senator, Barry Goldwater had just been elected in ’52.

A lot of people think Barry was the cause of the slide into the “gun-lovin, n***r-hatin’, flag-totin’ (Confederate & U.S.), fake-Christian, ‘Muricans” that the Republican party has devolved into. But, that’s only peripherally correct. It’s a lot more complicated than can be covered in a 721 word blurb. (I cover it more extensively in “The Tea Potty (pt. 3: Civil Rights, Civil Wrongs, Civil Rumps)” on my “Grumbles From an Old Grouch” blog.)

Barry had voted for most of the civil rights legislation prior to 1964. His objection to this particular legislation was that he felt it interfered with the rights of citizens to do business with whoever they chose. But after that “Texas turncoat” rammed through the legislation, the South thought it heard what it liked from Barry.

Barry, btw, warned against a lot of the excesses that the current party has come to embrace.

Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.

And, he had what is seriously lacking in today’s party: INTEGRITY!

In reality, Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” had a lot more to do with the devolution. I cover that in (pt.4: Viet Nam to Ventura).

But the even bigger villain is still around: NEWT GINGRICH!

No, I’m not talking about the “Contract on with America”. He didn’t have all that much to do with it. I’m talking about his 1990 memo “Language, a Key Mechanism of Control”. The memo listed words he recommended Republicans use against Democrats and Democratic policies. Words like sick, disgrace, corruption, cheat, decay, failure, pathetic, destructive, radical, traitor, greed, lie, liberal, betray, unionized bureaucracy, permissive, bizarre and anti-family. Once again, more on it in my series (pt. 8) this time.

If any of the previous paragraph sounds familiar, it’s because we’ve been hearing it for the last two decades.

Then after that Islamic Kenyan was elected president, the Tea Party…Potty came along. With the generous help of the Koch Bros and some others, Astro-turf groups started sprouting nation-wide. And, as they gained more and more power, any semi-moderate Republicans who didn’t follow the “true-believer” line were branded RINOs (Republicans In Name Only). By the 2010 election, Republicans as conservative as Utah’s Bob Bennett were being vilified with the RINO label. Along side the Baggers, the Religious Wrong added their interpretation of what a real “Conservative” was supposed to be. (Goldwater’s warning had come to pass.)

As for the state of the current party, if Robert Taft and Barry Goldwater were alive today, they would disown it. William F. Buckley did!

Oh, and one last thing. If Saint Reagan was running for re-election today, he wouldn’t  even get past the primaries. He not only raised the debt limit, but he also (gasp) raised taxes 11 times.
