#HaHa – Matt Gaetz Kicks Off Big Reelection Campaign To Crowds of 10’s

Matt Gaetz kicked off his reelection campaign on Saturday in Walnut Hill, Florida where a whopping crowd of less than 30 people showed up to hear him and Marjorie Taylor Greene speak.

 Northescambia.com reports: Walnut Hill is a small, unincorporated rural community that is almost as far as one can go to the northwest in Gaetz’s Northwest Florida district. Its population is but a tiny speck of the 800,000 or so people in Florida’s 1st Congressional District. It was his only stop Saturday in Escambia County and came after afternoon events in Crestview and Milton. Gaetz said he was proud to visit the far corner of the district to kick off his campaign even though, as he expected, the crowd was small.

Gaetz’s “adopted son” Nestor was not seen in the small group in attendance.

Trump White House Tells Agencies To Block Biden’s Transition Team

Via Washington Post reports:

The Trump White House on Monday instructed senior government leaders to block cooperation with President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team, escalating a standoff that threatens to impede the transfer of power and prompting the Biden team to consider legal action.

Officials at agencies across the government who had prepared briefing books and carved out office space for the incoming Biden team to use as soon as this week were told instead that the transition would not be recognized until the Democrat’s election was confirmed by the General Services Administration.

The team is evaluating its legal options and growing increasingly alarmed that the stalemate could drag on and impede its work. The campaign has prepared for weeks for the possibility that Trump would not move forward with a peaceful transfer of power.

Delaware GOP Chairman Forced To Resign After Posting Gay Slur on Facebook

Delaware GOP Chairman Forced To Resign After Posting Gay Slur on Facebook

Chris Rowe, the chair of the New Castle County Republican Committee in Delaware is being forced to resign his position after using a derogatory term for a gay man in a Facebook post. Rowe agreed to resign after GOP chairwoman Jane Brady called him Wednesday and asked him to step down from the appointed position.

Rowe has said that he making the decision “begrudgingly and only under duress.”

Rowe’s Facebook homophobic post about last Sunday’s Texas church shooting has been removed from his page.

“Faggots cannot handle reality,’’ Rowe had posted in response to a friend’s comment on his page.

After the post was discovered Rowe told the Delaware News Journal earlier that he wouldn’t apologize for using the slur. He called it “locker room talk” with a close friend and said he isn’t homophobic.

But after being told to resign he changed his story:

“I just got frustrated and used an improper word,’’ said Rowe “I made a mistake. God doesn’t create perfect people and I can verify that because I ain’t one.”

He said he never intended to offend gay people or anyone else.

“If the use of this word in any manner, injured or upset or really hit hard at the emotions of an individual and hurt them, really hurt them inside, I’m heartfully sorry,’’ Rowe said.

Regardless state GOP chair Jane Brady, a former Superior Court judge and attorney general who appointed Rowe, reiterated Friday that he had to step down.

Brady said she had spoken to many people within the party who were alarmed by the statement, and some who were not, before deciding her course of action.

“One of the people that called me said that they felt that this was a word that was used when they were in boot camp all the time, and I said, Well, what was the connotation then? It’s the same as the connotation now. It’s offensive.’ ”

Covington Catholic Schoolboy Nick Sandman's 250 Million Lawsuit Against The Washington Post Dismissed

Covington Catholic Schoolboy Nick Sandman’s $250 Million Lawsuit Against The Washington Post Dismissed

A $250 million lawsuit — filed by the lawyers for the family of the allegedy smug MAGA loving Covington Catholic schoolboy Nick Sandmann against The Washington Post — has been dismissed by a federal judge.

Sandmann, was the center of a controversy after his face was depicted across social media, along with Native American protester Nathan Phillips. The encounter happened in January, during a trip Sandmann and classmates from Covington Catholic High School made to an anti-abortion event.

At one point, Sandmann came face-to-face with a Native American man named Nathan Phillips. Some considered Sandmann’s reaction to Phillips disrespectful, or even worse, with thousands of people weighing in on social media

The lawsuit claimed that the Post “wrongfully targeted and bullied Nicholas because he was the white, Catholic student wearing a red ‘Make America Great Again’ souvenir cap on a school field trip and added that the Post engaged in “a modern-day form of McCarthyism” and “ignored basic journalist standards.”

“They didn’t investigate it,” Wood said. “They got it wrong. They published the false narrative and did not publish the truth” and argued that The Post’s first story suggested that Nick had assaulted or physically intimidated Nathan Phillips and engaged in racist taunts

Eastern District Federal Judge William O. Bertelsman wrote that “this is not supported by the plain languages in the article, which states none of these things.”

As the Court explained at oral argument on this motion, in modern libel law there are many affirmative defenses, even for blames based on defamatory statements. These defenses are calculated to protect defendants, especially the press, from strict liability.

“The defense that a statement of opinion is not actionable protects freedom of speech and the press guaranteed by the First Amendment.

“The Court accepts Sandmann’s statement that, when he was standing motionless in the confrontation with Phillips, his intent was to calm the situation and not to impede or block anyone.“However Phillips did not see it that way. He concluded that he was being “blocked” and “not allowed to “retreat.” He passed those conclusions on to The Post They may have been erroneous, but, as discussed above, they are option protected by the First Amendment. And The Post is not liable for publishing those opinions . . “

Bertelsman added that it was irrelevant to the defamation case that Sandmann was scorned on social media.

Lawsuits against CNN and NBC are pending. In all, Sandmann sued for amounts totaling $750 million.

TUMBLR Loses Over 87 Million Users In 1 Month After Ban of Adult Pictures

TUMBLR Loses Over 87 Million Users In 1 Month After Ban of Adult Pictures

TUMBLR’s ban on adult content  has cost the sharing platform  over one-fifth of its users in its first month of being instituted.

Visits to the Tumblr website fell from 521 million in December to 437 million in January, according to data from various web analytics traffic sites.

The ban, which came into effect on December 17th, provoked a backlash from users who claimed it would penalize sex-positive, LGBT and NSFW art communities.

Tumblr’s decision to update its content policy on all adult contact after the discovery of  child sexual abuse imagery on a few of it’s accounts after it was reported.

The decision proved controversial among many users and prompted a movement known as the “log off” protest to encourage people to leave the site

In defending the ban Tumblr said it still wanted to still be a platform for LGBT conversations.

“Tumblr will always be a place to explore your identity,” it wrote. “Tumblr has always been home to marginalized communities and always will be,” Tumblr wrote.

“We fully recognize Tumblr’s special obligation to these communities and are committed to ensuring that our new policy on adult content does not silence the vital conversations that take place here every day.”

One online petition calling for the policy to be reversedreceiving more than 600,000 signatures.

“Let people post porn, it’s 90 per cent of the reason anybody is on the site in the first place,” the petition states.

Ain’t it the truth.

Trump Falls Like A Ton of Bricks, Caves To Democrats On Shutdown

Trump Falls Like A Ton of Bricks, Caves To Democrats On Shutdown

The Daily Beast reports:

President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he would agree to a deal to fund the government without money for his much-desired border wall, effectively bringing an end to the longest shutdown in American history.

The framework of the arrangement remained unclear. But a Democratic Hill aide said—and Trump later confirmed—that it would extend funding for the government at current levels until February 15 and include a “vehicle” for lawmakers to begin discussions between the two congressional chambers over a larger bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security and border security specifically.The president presented the end result as a triumph for his administration, insisting that Democrats had come to his position on the need for a border barrier (they hadn’t).

And what was with that creepy fixation on duct tape?

Donald Trump Claims “Very Big Win” In Mid-Term Election

Via Roll Call:

Even though his party lost control of the House, President Donald Trump declared a “big victory” on Wednesday morning as he focused on Republicans picking up seats in the Senate.

The Associated Press projects the chamber will remain in Republican hands, with a Democratic takeover bid blocked after losses in Indiana and North Dakota. But Democrats, fueled by wins in key suburbs, will control the House come November.

 

28 out of the 31 candidates Donald Trump endorsed lost.

The Democrats gained more than the 23 seats they need to take over the 435-seat lower chamber.

They can now launch investigations into the Trump administration’s business affairs, from tax returns to potential conflicts of interest.

The Democrats could also more effectively block his legislative plans.

 

Kim Davis, Kentucky Anti–Gay Marriage Clerk Loses Re-Election Bid

Bye Felicia! – Kim Davis, Kentucky Anti–Gay Marriage Clerk Loses Re-Election Bid

Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who became a KKK-hristian martyr figure to the religious right after refusing to validate gay marriage licenses, has lost her bid for re-election.

Davis spent five days in jail for refusing to issues gay marriage licenses to couples in Kentucky in 2015 after the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage was a Constitutional right and became the anti-gay hate group the Liberty Counsel’s pin-up bigot.

Davis received about 3,566 votes while her opponent, Democrat Elwood Caudill Jr., won 4,210 for Rowan County clerk, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Much of the attention to Caudill’s campaign focused around his primary opponent David Ermold, a gay man who was denied a marriage license by Kim Davis in 2015.

After his loss, Ermold declined to throw his support behind Caudill. Instead, he has called Caudill a homophobe and said the Kentucky Fairness Campaign’s endorsement of Caudill was “personally offensive.”

Caudill repeatedly denied Ermold’s accusations of bigotry.

“I believe that as a community we must continue to work together toward a more prosperous and cohesive Rowan County,” Caudill said after his win. “Tonight was awesome.”

 

Hate Groups Claim Victory, Praise Evan Lowe For Shelving Anti-Gay Conversion Therapy

Hate Groups Claim Victory, Praise Evan Low For Shelving Anti-Gay Conversion Therapy

Last week we reported about California Assemblyman Evan Low who at the last minute shelved his bill AB 2943 that would outlaw so-called “gay conversion therapy” as a fraudulent practice despite having more than enough vote to pass it after talking “evangelical leaders”. (Lowe is up for re-election in November)

Many extremist “Christians” and anti-LGBT hate groups are claiming this as a victory.

James Dobson – the founder of the first and most vehemently anti-LGBT hate group Focus on the Family – was quick to claim victory after the announcement and praised extremist religious leaders for standing up against the “pro-LGBT legislation”.  

I am very grateful to all of the pastors, counselors and our families in California and across the country who spoke up and made their voices heard. It is incumbent on us to make sure we still have the right to make the best mental-health decisions for our children, our loved ones, and ourselves and that parental rights are protected now and for generations to come.”

California Family Council President Jonathan Keller, were also “grateful: for all the dialogue over the bill that led to its eventual “demise.”

“We are inexpressibly grateful to Assembly member Low for meeting personally with faith leaders over the last several months and sincerely listening to our concerns,” Keller expressed, according to ChurchLeaders.com. “AB 2943 would have tragically limited our ability to offer compassionate support related to sexual orientation and gender identity – and even to preach Jesus’ message of unconditional love and life transformation.”

“Low – who is openly gay said Friday that – after meeting this summer with the faith leaders – he would instead try again next year with a new version of the proposal [that] they could feel more comfortable with.

Coward.

Anti-Gay "Pastor" Scott Lively Gets His Ass Kicked in Massachusetts GOP Primary

Anti-Gay “Pastor” Scott Lively Gets His Ass Kicked in Massachusetts GOP Primary

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, a moderate seeking a second term in solidly Democratic Massachusetts has soundly beaten Scott Lively, a “pastor “from Springfield notorious for his lunatic religious extremist fixation on exposing “the gay agenda.

Lively garnered lots of attention earlier this year when he managed to peel away a disheartening number of delegates, nearly 28 percent, at the MassGOP convention in Worcester. Lively neglected to mention his “Kill the gays” point of view at the gathering, instead focusing on his devotion to other conservative causes and his support for President Trump.

Lively, who has called Trump “God’s man in the White House,” frequently called Baker a RINO – a Republican in name only – but had little money or staff to mount a serious challenge to the well-financed incumbent

Lively is one of the most infamous of the “D-List” anti-LGBT extremists.  His propaganda includes a book called The Pink Swastika that assigns blame for the Holocaust to a shadowy homosexual cabal, and a tour through Uganda that inspired a vicious crackdown on that country’s LGBT community and ensnared Lively in a lawsuit alleging he committed alleging he committed a crime against humanity

Despite Lively’s sound defeat he did manage to get about 35 percent of the vote which is worrisome in its own right.
