Professional Courtesy: Republicans Vote Against Mental Health Care

Just whip ’em out an measure ’em, boys.

This slipped past me yesterday, I was so fixated on watching Florida literally turn into their state motto: where the debris meets the sea.

Anyway, the next time that the Ammosexuals and Gundamentalists claim that guns don’t kill people, it’s mental health, throw this in their faces.

(And seriously, does anyone doubt that Reps. Bo-Bo and 3-Names are mental?)

2024 Stealth Goat Enters The Rodeo: Gov. Glenn Youngkin

The 2020 Goat Rodeo!

It’s hardly surprising that stealth fascist Soccer Dad Virginia’s Governor Youngkin has ambition:

RICHMOND — Gov. Glenn Youngkin, who seems to be inching closer to a 2024 presidential bid, sidestepped when asked this week if he would commit to completing all four years of the term he began just eight months ago.

“I’m committed to completing our agenda,” the Republican told CNBC correspondent Ylan Mui at a forum in New York Wednesday.

That noncommittal response comes amid mounting evidence that Youngkin, a former private-equity mogul who plowed $20 million of his own money into last year’s campaign, is considering a White House run.

Youngkin consistently denies that he is thinking about 2024, but his actions suggest otherwise. He has met with megadonors in New York, formed two political committees, and has been raising his national profile by stumping for Republican gubernatorial candidates in about a dozen states. He is a regular on Fox News. This week,he is hosting a two-day donor retreat outside Charlottesville.

Yeah, totally not running. Bet he has the Campaign Logo already in an InDesign file on his campaign computer, and a new stack of fleece vests with the logo embroidered on it.

Republican Family Values Strikes Again

Another Republican loves kids

Funny how it is always Team Family Values that ends up being Team Child Molester:

Former Trump Official Pleads Guilty to Child Porn Charge, Is Sentenced to Prison

A former Commerce Department official in the Trump administration was sentenced to a five-and-a-half year prison term after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography, federal prosecutors announced last week in a court filing. Under the terms of his plea deal, Adam Hageman was also sentenced to five years of parole after release and a mandatory requirement to register as a sex offender.

Hageman was arrested in November of 2020 after he was found to be a member of an online group chat dedicated to sharing images of child sexual abuse.

The site’s name on which the discussions allegedly took place has not been publicly disclosed, but according to an affidavit filed by prosecutors, Hageman shared with members at least one video of a child being molested, claimed to have sexually abused a child as young as 15, and indicated that he wanted to sexually assault children between the ages of 12 and 16 years old. Prosecutors asserted that they found “dozens” of child sexual abuse videos on Hageman’s phone after federal authorities executed a search warrant against him.

And in what is eerily similar to Josh Duggar, the article has pictures of Hageman posing with prominent members of the 4th Reich.

Politico has a post up, too, in which we learn that Hageman was not the only member of the 4th Reich who was in this circle:

Hageman is the most recent political operative arrested on federal child pornography charges. In February, authorities arrested and charged Ruben Verastigui, a former Senate Republican staffer, with similar offenses.

Details in both men’s arrest warrants suggest they were participants in the same group that investigators began looking into last June. According to both Hageman and Verastigui’s warrants, investigators discovered a group of at least 18 individuals “who were trading child pornography on a particular website” that remains unnamed in the complaints.

Prior to his work in the Trump Commerce Department, Hageman was working with Charlie Kirk’s Turning Point, USA.

Let’s listen in as our Favorite Fascist foments insurrection in the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan:

Not sure that’s actually a power, but it might be a precedent. Let’s recall how well that went in the 1860s.

News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News

SCOTUS 10th Justice Ginni Thomas Appears on Capitol Hill
(Hat tip: @Pleightx on Twitter)

 

Well the day finally arrived when activist SCOTUS Justice #10 —Ginni Thomas— appeared on Capitol Hill to testify before the Jan. 6 Committee, and boy-howdy:

WASHINGTON – Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, repeated claims the 2020 election was stolen, despite a lack of evidence, while testifying Thursday before the House committee investigating the Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021.

The committee wanted to interview Ginni Thomas about her advocacy for challenging the results of the 2020 election. The chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., told reporters after the session she repeated her opinion the election was stolen despite a lack of evidence.

“She said that,” Thompson told CNN.

So, why exactly did the Committee want to see Mrs. Justice Thomas?

The committee has been eager to talk with Ginni Thomas because she sent dozens of text messages to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows urging him to fight the results of the 2020 election.

Among the 29 messages, Ginni Thomas called Biden’s win “the greatest Heist of our History” in a text on Nov. 10, 2020, according to The Washington Post.

“Do not concede,” Thomas wrote on Nov. 6, 2020. “It takes time for the army who is gathering for his back.”

Uh, that sounds bad. That sounds like she knows stuff.

In addition, Ginni Thomas urged Arizona state lawmakers to reverse former President Donald Trump’s election loss in 2020 by choosing electors themselves. And the Washington Post reported she also pressured Wisconsin lawmakers to do the same.

That REALLY sounds like she knows stuff. It also sounds like she’s completely delusional and needs help.

Justice Clarence Thomas has a flashing red light over his court duties and must recuse himself from any Insurrection-related cases, and I would add any Big Lie related cases. Or he should step down.

Anything less is insane.

And you mugs thought I would be a bad influence on Seattle?

Axios’ Seattle edition tells us that since I moved to here, Seattle is swearing less.

“Seattle nice” strikes again.

Driving the news: A new survey of 30 cities finds that Seattle is one of the places where residents swear the least.

By the numbers: Seattle ranked among the bottom third of cities when it came to how often per day residents said they curse, according to the survey by Preply, a language tutoring platform.

  • Seattleites, on average, reported they uttered swear words 18 times a day.
  • That’s half as often as residents of Columbus, Ohio, where residents said they swear 36 times daily.

The big picture: Overall, Seattle ranked the fifth-least profane among big cities, tied with Detroit, Houston and Memphis.

I might add that those eff’ing cities are eff’ing liars, the dirty effs.

Of note: These numbers are self-reported by the roughly 1,500 people Preply surveyed across the 30 cities.

OK, I got in three in this post, just 15 more cusses to go! Sorry I’m letting you down, Seattle!
