Meet Jason Mariner Convicted Felon and GOP MAGA Cultist Who Claims Election Fraud In 59-Point Special Election Loss In Florida

Meet Jason Mariner Convicted Felon and GOP MAGA Cultist Who Claims Election Fraud In 59-Point Special Election Loss In Florida

Democrats heavily outnumbered Republicans in the South Florida district that had a SPECIAL ELECTION last week for District 20 House Rep in Florida— Nobody. I mean NOBODY expected a close race and it wasn’t. Democrat Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick won the special election with 79 percent of the vote.

But wait! GOP MAGA Cultist opponent Jason Mariner the representative-elect’s Republican rival, who hedged on conceding the race is calling it calling it. You guessed it. Election Fraud.

 The CBS affiliate in Miami reported, the unusual part of this story was the response to the outcome from the representative-elect’s Republican rival, who hedged on conceding the race. “Now they called the race, I did not win, so they say, but that does not mean that they lost either, it does not mean that we lost,” said Republican Jason Mariner. Several hours before the polls even closed, Mariner filed a lawsuit alleging there is a problem with the ballots in Palm Beach and Broward Counties.

GOP’s Jim Jordan Refuses To Cooperate With Jan 6. Riot Committee.

Gee. I wonder why?

Ohio congressman Jim Jordan has said he won’t voluntarily cooperate with the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol, describing the “Democrat obsession” as the latest of the “partisan witch hunts.”

The Republican, who represents Ohio’s 4th congressional district, wrote in a letter to committee chair rep. Bennie Thompson that the inquiry into the January 6 riot amounts to an “unprecedented and inappropriate demand to examine the basis for a colleague’s decision on a particular matter pending” before the House of Representatives

GOP Kevin McCarthy Whines: "Democrats are Using January 6th as a Political Weapon!"

GOP Kevin McCarthy Whines: “Democrats are Using January 6th as a Political Weapon!”

House Minority Leader Republican Kevin McCarthy on the one year anniversary of the Jan. 6 attacks in a letter to his GOP colleagues accused Democrats of using the days tragic domestic terrorist attack and events as a “partisan political weapon.”

As we have said from the start, the actions of that day were lawless and as wrong as wrong can be. Our Capitol should never be compromised and those who broke the law deserve to face legal repercussions and full accountability. Unfortunately, one year later, the majority party seems no closer to answering the central question of how the Capitol was left so unprepared and what must be done to ensure it never happens again,” he added. “Instead, they are using it as a partisan political weapon to further divide our country.”

The Hill

McCarthy’s squirming because he has a personal interest after his phone call with then President Trump during the insurrectionist terrorist attach became public knowledge.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who chairs the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, “invited” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Wednesday for a “voluntary interview”.\

If he has information he wants to share with us and is willing to voluntarily come in, I’m not taking the invitation off the table,” Thompson said during an interview with ABC News.

“If Leader McCarthy has nothing to hide, he can voluntarily come before the committee.”

TX GOP Dan Crenshaw Trashes Greene & Gaetz's Freedom Caucus. Calls Them "Performance Artists and Grifters"

TX GOP Dan Crenshaw Trashes Greene & Gaetz’s Freedom Caucus. Calls Them “Performance Artists and Grifters”

Look’s like the GOP is beginning to splinter as Texas GOP Rep Dan Crenshaw is breaking from the EXTREME right of certain members of the Republican party and is trying to distance himself a bit more center and away from the Freedom Caucus and GANG GREENE.

There are two types of members of Congress: there is performance artists and there is legislators. Performance artists are the ones who get all of the attention, the ones you think are more conservative because they know how to say slogans real well.

They know how to recite the lines that they know our voters want to hear. What you hear so often is not true. It’s not true. We have grifters in our midst. I mean in the conservative movement.

Lie after lie after lie because they know something psychologically about the conservative heart. We’re worried about what people are doing to do to us, what people are going to infringe upon us, that’s the nature of conservatism.

GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw

Dan Crenshaw in an asshole, but he is kinda hot. Maybe he and Adam Kinsinger could get together and do some Daddy GOPorn when their political careers are over.

Man Wanted for Jan 6. Capital Insurrection Attack Seeks Asylum In Belarus

A man on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for attacking police and storming the Capital during the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol domestic terrorist attack is now seeking asylum in Belarus, Russia according to state-run tv.

Evan Neumann, 48, is wanted in the United States on charges of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, as well as for assaulting, resisting and obstructing law enforcement during civil disorder.

Neumann sold his California home in spring and was thought to have moved to Ukraine to evade arrest, ABC News reported this summer. Neumann “sought justice and asked uncomfortable questions” following the 2020 U.S. elections disputed by ex-President Donald Trump, the presenter added, “but lost almost everything and is being persecuted by the U.S. government.”

Neumann aka. #DrunkedTrashStache crossed illegally into Belarus after spending months in Ukraine.

GURL NO!: GOP Josh (Hee) Hawley Declares Himself Defender of Masculinity

OH MARY PLEASE!: GOP Josh (Hee) Hawley Declares Himself King and Defender of Masculinity

When I think Josh Hawley, masculinity is not the first thing that comes to mind.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) told “Axios on HBO” he’ll make masculinity a signature political issue, because he claims “the left” is telling men: “You’re part of the problem. Your masculinity is inherently problematic. As conservatives, we’ve got to call men back to responsibility,” Hawley said. “We’ve got to say that spending your time not working, spending your time on video games, spending your time watching porn online is not good for you, your family or this country. Asked during the . Axios on HBO” interview to paint a picture of his ideal man, Hawley said: “Well, a man is a father. A man is a husband. A man is somebody who takes responsibility.

GOP Seditionist Senator Josh Hawley on Axios

George Takei on Twitter responded: “Josh Hawley making masculinity a core issue in 2022 is like me trying to play contact sports. Neither of us can pull it off without wondering if we’re okay.”

The pic below is just so butch Josh. Or should we say BITCH. (Meant in the non-misogynist gay way.)

Gay History – October 28: Republican Senator Jesse Helms “Homosexuals and lesbians [are] disgusting” and more.

Jesse Helms

 

1903:  British writer Evelyn Waugh is born in London. His best-known works include his early satires Decline and Fall (1928) and A Handful of Dust (1934), and of course his novel Brideshead Revisited (1945).

1970:  Kate Millet, American feminist writer, artist and activist comes out of the closet. Millet became a seminal influence on second-wave feminism and is best known for her 1970 book Sexual Politics.

1990: The late Senator Jesse Helms infamously declared in a campaign speech that “homosexuals and lesbians [are] disgusting people marching in our streets demanding all sorts of things, including the right to marry each other.” Helms was disgusted by gays and lesbians, who he called  “weak, morally sick wretches” (1994), and accused them of engaging in “incredibly offensive and revolting conduct” 

For nearly two decades, he fought tooth and nail against expanded federal funding for AIDS research, and exploited gays and lesbians as convenient scapegoats in his constant fear-mongering crusade.  In 1987 Helms said, “Somewhere along the line we’re going to have to quarantine people with AIDS.” Helms’ uncaring and disgusting response to the disease was explained by his tirade the next year against the bipartisan Kennedy-Hatch AIDS bill, when he claimed, “There is not one single case of AIDS in this country that cannot be traced in origin to sodomy.” Of course which was a lie.

Helms died of vascular dementia during the early morning hours of July 4, 2008, at the age of 86.  Mitch McConnell of Kentucky eulogized Helms as one of the “kindest men” in Congress, and said, “no matter who you were, he always had a thoughtful word and a gentle smile.”

Jesse Helms is currently burning in HELL alongside Jerry Falwell and his good friend Ronald Reagan. They are waiting on FRC’s  Tony Perkins to check-in and join them so they have a fourth for Canasta.

1990: A high-end event at Carnegie Hall raised $1.5 million for the Gay Men’s Health Crisis. It was reportedly a “three-hour international parade of singers and musicians [and] a demonstration that AIDS is a disease to be feared and resisted not just by several enclaves but by people of every sex, nationality and sexual persuasion.”

1992:  Episcopal Bishop A. Theodore Eastman issued an order to clergy in Maryland not to bless same-sex unions.

1997: The National Black Lesbian and Gay Leadership Forum condemned gospel singers Angie and Debbie Winans for their anti-gay song “It’s Not Natural” and BET-TV for providing them with a one-sided forum to promote their homophobic views.

2009: The first openly gay member of the German government, Guido Westerwelle, took office as Vice Chancellor and Foreign Minister to Angela Merkel. – Kiss me Guido!

Gay History Month – October 3: Roddy McDowell, GOP Gay Sex Scandals Ain’t Nothing New, and the Infamous Bloomingdale’s Tearoom

October 3rd……

1847: Hans Christian Andersen wrote to the Hereditary Grand-duke of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach,I love you as a man can only love the noblest and best. This time I felt that you were still more ardent, more affectionate to me. Every little trait is preserved in my heart.”

1872: Bloomingdale’s department store opens in Manhattan. YES, this is gay history, just ask any gay man from New York City over 40 about the ever popular men’s room in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Well, some places just become notorious, like the Bloomingdale’s bathroom or certain train cars during rush hour. For those spots, it’s the thrill of danger that IS the appeal. It’s like a form of exhibitionism, the idea that you might get caught.  –  posted by sexyrobot at 3:53 PM on February 17, 2015

Shopping and sex all in one place?  Who could ask for anything more? (And when they were done many a shopping queen didn’t. (Tap…tap….tap.) 

1973: Dr. Howard Brown, former New York City Health Administrator, made history when he came out of the closet in a speech in front of 600 colleagues. He later became the director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force back at a time when it actually had a “task”

1980: Conservative Republican U.S. Representative Robert Bauman was arrested for soliciting sex from a 16-year-old male prostitute.  The arrest came in the midst of Bauman’s reelection campaign, occurring after the deadline for withdrawal from the contest, and thus handing the election to Democrat Roy Dyson, who hadn’t stood a chance before Bauman’s arrest. Prior to his arrest, Bauman was a member of both the Moral Majority the American Conservative Union.   Bauman said he was suffering from alcoholism and entered himself into a court-supervised rehabilitation program, which, upon successful completion, resulted in the charges being dropped.

Bauman left politics for good and now writes books about offshore banking and the creation of tax havens. He is currently the legal counsel for Sovereign Society , a group that works at creating such tax havens. And does not support same-sex marriage

1998:  Prolific actor Roderick Andrew Anthony Jude “Roddy” McDowall passes away from lung cancer at age 70 in Studio City, CA.

McDowell made his first well-known film appearance at the age of 12, playing “Huw Morgan” in How Green Was My Valley (1941), where he met and became lifelong friends with Maureen O’Hara. The film won an Academy Award for Best Picture, and made him a household name.He starred in Lassie Come Home (1943), a film that introduced a girl who would become his lifelong friend – Elizabeth Taylor.  McDowall continued his career successfully into adulthood, a rare event for any child star  and  also became a film director, photographer and voice artist. and is probably best known today for his roles in Fright Night, The Poseidon Adventure, and as Cornelius, Caesar, and Galen in the original Planet of the Apes films and television series.

Although Roddy McDowall made no public statements about his sexual orientation during his lifetime, it was a well known fact in Hollywood that he was gay

2005: This week’s TIME cover story is titled “The Battle Over Gay Teens”. TIME’s cover story in 2005 touched on the effort to eradicate anti-gay speech in schools and to set up clubs and advocacy groups to support gay teens. But the story also underscored the ongoing tension between religion and homosexuality that still continues today.

2012: Orlando Cruz became the first out gay professional boxer when USA Today broke the news of the athlete coming out. Cruz said in a statement: “I’ve been fighting for more than 24 years and as I continue my ascendant career, I want to be true to myself. I want to try to be the best role model I can be for kids who might look into boxing as a sport and a professional career. I have and will always be a proud Puerto Rican. I have always been and always will be a proud gay man.”

The screenplay was written by Arthur Laurents. Both Farley Granger and John Dall, were gay.

The original play that it was based on more explicitly portrays the characetrs of Brandon and Phillip in a homosexual relationship.  But the movie is considered one of Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpieces.

CBS put the show up against Bonanza, then the fourth most popular program on television,and consistently performed poorly in the ratings. Although fans rallied in an attempt to save the show, CBS cancelled it after a single season.

TV Guide included the series in their 2013 list of 60 shows that were “Cancelled Too Soon”

Howard Stern Calls for Vax Mandates: "Fuck their freedom, I want my freedom to live!” And We Agree!

Howard Stern Calls for Vax Mandates: “Fuck their freedom, I want my freedom to live!” And We Agree!

NYC shock jock and radio legend Howard Stern took to his SirusXM radio show last night and voiced his frustrations at the never-ending Coronavirus pandemic, the 645,000, American’s that have died and the fact that that it’s still deadly to those vaccinated while the unvaccinated wander around unmasked and unchecked.

When are we gonna stop putting up with the idiots in this country and just say it’s mandatory to get vaccinated? Fuck ’em. Fuck their freedom. I want my freedom to live. I want to get out of the house already. I want to go next door and play chess. I want to go take some pictures. As far as I remember, when I went to school, you had to get a measles vaccine, you had to get a mumps vaccine, there was a ton of them you got. Go fuck yourself. You had the cure and you wouldn’t take it.”

Rolling Stone

Stern addressed the overwhelmed hospitals, as well. “The other thing I hate is that all these people with COVID who won’t get vaccinated are in the hospitals clogging it up,” he continued. “So like, if you have a heart attack or any kind of problem, you can’t even get into the E.R. And I’m really of mind to say, ‘Look, if you didn’t get vaccinated [and] you got COVID, you don’t get into a hospital.’”

“You had the cure and you wouldn’t take it,” he added.

Trends are show that the majority of American’s agree with Stern.

Back2Stonewall stands 100% behind the using COVID safety measures, masking up, vaccines, and vaccine passports.
