Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Panel Has Evidence Rioters Interacted With GOP House Reps

Jan. 6 Capitol Riot Panel Has Evidence Rioters Interacted With GOP House Reps

Jan. 6 committee chair Bennie Thompson says on ABC that the investigation has uncovered the insurrection “appeared to be a coordinated effort on the part of a number of people to undermine the election.” including GOP Congressmen.

Thompson, said his panel has evidence of interactions between members of the House and the rioters that day but not necessarily of a significant nature and said the committee wanted to hear from Reps. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) about their activities, though he said it was not clear if his panel would or even could subpoena them.

When asked if the House Jan. 6 committee has found any significant evidence that members of Congress may be culpable in attack, chair Rep. Bennie Thompson tells George Stephanopoulos, “we’re in the process of getting to that.”

Funny but I seem to remember a video of Republicans giving the rioters tours of the Capitol in the days leading up to the Cracker Barrel Putsch despite the fact that tours were cancelled over COVID fears. That’s a good place to start for HARD evidence.

Trump Administration Seeks To Block Billions In COVID-19 State Testing, CDC, and Pentagon Pandemic Funds

Via The Washington Post:

The Trump administration is trying to block billions of dollars for states to conduct testing and contact tracing in the upcoming coronavirus relief bill, people involved in the talks said Saturday.

The administration is also trying to block billions of dollars that GOP senators want to allocate for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and billions more for the Pentagon and State Department to address the pandemic at home and abroad, the people said.

The administration’s posture has angered some GOP senators, the officials said, and some lawmakers are trying to push back and ensure that the money stays in the bill. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to reveal confidential deliberations, cautioned that the talks were fluid and the numbers were in flux.

As of this writing over 140,000 Americans have died been murdered due to Donald Trump and his administration’s mishandeling of the coronavirus pandemic since March of this year.

American Embassy Defies Trump and Putin, Displays PRIDE Flag in Moscow

Earlier this month the Trump administration ordered American embassies in foreign countries not to display the rainbow PRIDE flag. In Russia itself it as seen as a symbol of LGBT propaganda and against the law. But that did not stop the American embassy in Moscow which is proudly and definitely displaying the flag for all to see.

“LGBTI rights are human rights. Human rights are universal,” said the caption on the embassy’s Instagram page. “Pride Month is designed to emphasize that everyone deserves to live a life free of hate, prejudice, and persecution.”

Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented that they “can’t see the American embassy from the Kremlin,” but said that “any manifestations of propaganda of non-traditional sexual minorities, and so on, is not allowed by law in our country.”

Yesterday millions of Russians took to the polls to vote on a package of constitutional amendments, including one which would enshrine marriage as being between a man and a woman. In March, the country’s Constitutional Court approved the proposal, but noted that it would not remove the state’s obligation to respect differences, including sexual orientation.

We will post the results of the vote when the numbers become available.

Trump Impeachment Lawyer Jay Sekulow Supports Criminalizing Homosexuality

Trump Impeachment Lawyer Jay Sekulow Supports Criminalizing Homosexuality and Scammed Millions from the Poor

Right Wing Watch reports that in the 1990’s anti-gay Christian crypt keeper Pat Robertson of the Christian Broadcasting Network placed Donald Trump impeachment team lawyer Jay Sekulow to run Robertson’s newly founded American Center for Law and Justice.

Robertson created the ACLJ as an anti-ACLU type group. Sekulow and the ACLJ opposed to laws protecting the rights of LGBT people in the U.S. and abroad. The ACLJ argued on behalf of state laws criminalizing gay sex that were overturned by the Supreme Court in 2003. Sekulow has said that the state has a “compelling interest to ban the act of homosexuality.”

In Africa, ACLJ worked to shape constitutional language in Zimbabwe, where it has fought to maintain criminalization of homosexuality.

Mother Jones report:

Sekulow and his son Jordan opened affiliated offices of the ACLJ in Africa to lobby politicians to “take the Christian’s views into consideration as they draft legislation and policies,” according to ACLJ’s website. ACLJ’s Zimbabwe office has pushed an agenda that backs outlawing same-sex marriage and making sure that homosexuality “remain[s] a criminal activity.” (Zimbabwe had outlawed homosexuality in 2006.)

Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe is among the most ruthless dictators in the world—but in 2010 ACLJ-Zimbabwe’s chairman, pastor Alex Chisango, led Mugabe and others in prayer to kick off Zimbabwe’s constitutional reform drive. ACLJ wanted to ensure that, whatever else changed in the country’s constitution, homosexuality remained illegal and same-sex marriage was banned.

Sekulow also has a long history of grifting money from the poor in the name of God as reported by the Guardian:

Documents obtained by the Guardian show Sekulow approved plans to push poor and jobless people to donate money to his Christian nonprofit, which since 2000 has steered more than $60 million to Sekulow, his family and their businesses.

Telemarketers for the nonprofit, Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (Case), were instructed in contracts signed by Sekulow to urge people who pleaded poverty or said they were out of work to dig deep for a “sacrificial gift”.

“I can certainly understand how that would make it difficult for you to share a gift like that right now,” they told retirees who said they were on fixed incomes and had “no extra money” – before asking if they could spare “even $20 within the next three weeks”.

Other scripts that Sekulow contact representatives used to raise money siad that money was needed for Case’s “massive campaign to repeal and replace Obamacare” and that the “Christian” US was under siege from both Muslim terrorists and a liberal political elite led by President Obama supposedly desperate to increase the national abortion rate.

Kellyanne Conjob: Detention Center Conditions Are Great!

Via The Hill:

Kellyanne Conway on Sunday defended conditions in a border detention facility she toured, saying they demonstrate what happens when “Congress gets its act together.”

“I witnessed no overcrowding, I saw lots of supplies, I saw diapers, I saw food, I saw endless supplies of water,” the White House counselor said on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to a facility she recently visited near McAllen, Texas.

“What I saw is what happens when Congress gets its act together and passes humanitarian aid,” she added

That’s exactly what the Nazis said about their concentration camps. They even went so far as to make showcase concentration camps for the Red Cross to inspect

Someone please smack that bitch already. Repeatedly.

Trump Supporter Arrested For Racist And Homophobic Death Threats Against Cory Booker, Rashida Tlaib and Eric Swalwell

Trump Supporter Arrested For Racist And Homophobic Death Threats Against Cory Booker, Rashida Tlaib and Eric Swalwell

Via The Miami Herald:

Federal authorities have arrested a South Florida man and accused him of calling the offices of three members of Congress and leaving threatening, racist and homophobic messages. John Kless, 49, has been charged with making threatening communications after U.S. Capitol Police say he called up U.S. Sen. Cory Booker and U.S. Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Eric Swalwell Tuesday and unleashed foul, profanity-laced rants onto their office voicemails.

Kless, according to a criminal complaint, warned Swalwell — a California congressman who is running for a president on a gun-safety platform — that he’d be dead before Americans would lose their guns. “The day you come after our guns, motherf***er, is the day you’ll be dead,” Kless said, according to the complaint. “Along with everybody in the f***ing government.”

In his message to Tlaib’s office, Kless referenced Omar’s recent “some people did something” comments about 9/11 — a statement Omar made to argue that all Muslims should not be punished for the actions of the few who committed the attacks.

Kless repeatedly used the N-word to refer to Booker and called him a “monkey,” according to court records, adding he wanted to kill black men like the senator. “You’re a fucking disgrace,” Kless allegedly said. “We need to kill all you motherfuckers, man, every fucking one of you, man.”

But Trump supporters aren’t racist. No Siree Bob!

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.

 

Florida Yoga Studio Shooter Exposed As Far-Right, Trump Loving, Anti-Gay, Anti-Immigrant Extremist

Florida Yoga Studio Shooter Exposed As Far-Right, Trump Loving, Anti-Gay, Anti-Immigrant Extremist

Via Buzzfeed News

The man who shot dead two women at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida, on Friday before killing himself was a far-right extremist and self-proclaimed misogynist who railed against women, black people, and immigrants in a series of online videos and songs.

Scott Beierle, 40, was named by Tallahassee Police as the gunman who opened fire inside the Hot Yoga Tallahassee studio, killing two and injuring four other women and a man. In one video called “Plight of the Adolescent Male,” he named Elliot Rodger, who killed six people and injured 14 and is often seen as a hero for so-called “incels,” or those who consider themselves “involuntarily celibate.”

In “American Wigger,” he sang that he would “blow off” the head of a women he referred to using the c-word. The song “Locked in my Basement” featured an extremely disturbing tale of Beierle holding a woman prisoner in his basement using chains so he could rape her. Other songs were entitled “Who Let The Fags Out?” and “Bring Your Fatwa.

Beierle’s YouTube channel was filled with sexist, racist anti-gay rants in which he identified himself as a “misogynist” and expressed sympathy for “involuntary celibates.”

In another video, “Illegal Immigration and the Unaffordable Care Act,” he advocated for further militarizing the U.S.-Mexico border and accuses the Affordable Care Act of “susidizing sluttiness” by offering coverage for birth control.

KKK- hristian Trump Supporter Crashes Drag Queen Story Hour

KKK-hristian Trump Supporter Crashes Drag Queen Story Hour, Traumatizes Children

The Cellar Door bookstore in Riverside, California was a hosting a story time event in which Halloween books were read by three drag queens.

Linda Sherman-Nurick the owner of the bookstore said in the days leading to the reading, she had been getting angry phone calls from people saying they shouldn’t host that event.

“Our response was ‘that’s fine, don’t come’,” she said.

During the event, Sherman-Nurick noticed a woman recording video and she explained to her that she couldn’t record the children without the parents’ permission.

But the woman refused to stop.

“She has invited the public to watch this perversion with these homosexuals,” said the woman who was identified as Los Angeles resident Genevieve Peters.

Peters said she wasn’t recording the children, just the drag queens and explains that she decided to attend the reading because she feels that the country is going down an immoral path.

“For the last 30 years, the homosexual agenda has been first and foremost wanting to desensitize our communities, our children, our families,” she said.

“This is about saying ‘You know what, this is a perverse lifestyle and if you choose it it’s your business,’” she said, “but we as Americans can choose not to agree with it.”

Eventually, a Riverside Police officer escorted Peters outside the bookstore, but she said if they bring the drag queens back, she will also be back.

On her Twitter page Peters describes herself as a “Passionate American Patriot, Rabid Trump Supporter, Constitutionalist, Lover of life, laughter and travel.”

Well she got the “rabid” part right.

 

Nashville, TN Gay Bars Sent Threatening Pro-Trump Flyers With Pictures of Assault Rifles

Nashville, TN Gay Bars Sent Threatening Pro-Trump Flyers With Pictures of Assault Rifles

At least four gay bars in Nashville, Tennessee have received anonymously sent intimidating pro-Trump flyers. Each flyer features the letters “LGBT” with images of the Statue of Liberty, a beer bottle, an assault rifle, and Donald Trump over each letter.

“They chose to use an image of the weapon that was used in one of the largest massacres in American history at the Pulse Nightclub,” Melvin Brown, who owns and operates the Stirrup Sports Bar in Nashville, told FOX 17 News.

“Was it somebody that is sending it from a hateful place? Was it somebody trying to use it as a motivating factor with the midterm elections coming up, which is a huge possibility.”

Each of the flyers have Trump’s “MAGA” slogan on the reverse side. Police have traced the return addresses to a vacant lot. They have yet to identify the senders.

Some think that the flyers are meant as an intimidation tactic ahead of the mid-term elections, just a few weeks from now. Others believe that in the current political climate that they have a much darker meaning.
