    Trump Gives William Barr Wide Declassification Authority In ‘Spying’ Probe

    “President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election,” ...
    Sanders noted that Trump had also granted “full and complete authority” to Barr to declassify any information necessary related to his investigation.
    Trump through Barr is turning over Intelligence information about our assets in Russia to Putin. And the GOP Senate is going to enable this sedition.

    Oh WBE! Get a load of this.

    Republican Rep. Chip Roy blocked what would have been a unanimous vote on disaster relief funding legislation because it does not include a "quite modest $4.4 billion" for border security.

    First, they came for the transgenders, and I said nothing because I was cis.

    So Theresa May resigns as Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party. I thought she was going to last a little longer.

    The new PM stop will have to deal with the same problems. The people voted to leave the union, they need a hardline on the exit and parliament is not willing to budge.
    The next leader could be the shortest serving PM in history. The same problems exist - a minority government, a parliament that cannot find a majority for anything, an urgent need to start a new Parliamentary session but no way of winning the vote. An election is surely going to be called.

    No Deal is Better Than A Bad Deal,

    Upholding the wishes of the British people, she believed that No deal is better than a bad deal. In fact, she was doing the opposite. This is how political leaders mislead people. More so, she allowed the situation to rot to such an extent that she was prepared to see the Tory Party destroyed in the knowledge that the Conservative Party is the only party fit to rule the country. She signed her own deal with Brussels in November 2018. The same deal was presented 3 times in Parliament and it was rejected 3 times. She still wants to present it again hoping she would be 4th time lucky. She is behaving exactly in the same as those Remainer Extremists who want to overthrow the will of the British people, those extremists who want another referendum in the hope that they may have their own way. If not, they would want a 3rd referendum and a 4th. This is putting the very unity of the United Kingdom in great peril with First Minister Nichola Sturgeon ready to pounce.

    Just another bit of cruelty.

    It was on this date in 2015 that “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” had a profile of Randy Rives profiled Norman McAllister, whose legislative record was not the focus of our profile, as much as his arrest for sexually assaulting two women in a sex-for-rent scheme. One of the victims was believed to be an underage girl who worked as an intern for in the state capitol, and another was encouraged to have sex with some of the workers on his farm, with the incentive being that her rent would get even cheaper. For lack of a better term, Norman is scum, and the Vermont State Senate suspended him from the chamber in a 20-10 vote and will not be permitted to return unless the charges against him are dismissed (you’re reading this right, the GOP have not disowned him, and he did not resign). McAllister was eventually found guilty, though, is currently looking at a seven year prison sentence, and will have to register as a sex offender, which makes it pretty unlikely that he’ll be mounting a political comeback.

    In both 2016, 2017, as well as 2018, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” presented profiles of former Illinois State Senator Kyle McCarter, who was originally appointed to office in 2009, and served three terms in office, winning re-election in 2014 by having the benefit of running unopposed. We’ve had him floating around our queue for quite some time now, starting around the time that we read about McCarter claiming he was punched in the chest by a Democratic State Senator back in 2011. The accused senator, Mike Jacobs, responded to the accusation by saying of McCarter, “I would say the senator is full of s***.” And considering no charges were ever filed, no video proof of this event in the Senate chamber seems to have come out of it, we would tend to agree. Then again, we know how the rest of this profile reads, and how Jacobs may have been understating McCarter’s… shall we say philosophical constipation. In his time in office, McCarter has appeared in the news cycle several times, most frequently because of his irrationally extreme opposition to LGBT rights. In October of 2011, not four months removed from his heated debate with Jacobs, McCarter submitted a bill to try to allow Catholic adoption agencies to refuse to place children in households with same sex parents, because he apparently thinks a child continuing to be an orphan is better than having two parents of the same gender. He’s also blocked anti-bullying legislation because it would protect LGBT students in public schools from being harassed and voted against a ban on gay conversion therapy on minors (even though the practice is considered a human rights violation by some) in the Illinois legislature. But on Valentine’s Day in 2013, Kyle McCarter truly became worthy of our attention. In the wake of the Illinois State Senate voting 34-21 to legalize same sex marriage, despite of McCarter’s ridiculous protests that doing so would force local flower shops and “marriage-related” businesses to close down (when in fact, if they were tolerant and accommodated gay couples, their business would soar),McCarter took to Facebook to seethe about the great majority of the chamber deciding it was time for marriage equality, writing, “To redefine marriage is discriminatory towards those who hold the sincerely held religious belief that it is a sacred institution between a man & a woman.” That’s right… LGBTQ couples being allowed to marry is discriminatory towards McCarter and all his straight pals. Or at least, he says it is, because he’s got things as backwards as they could ever possibly be. He spent the next year attempting to repeal the law, before finally giving up. Mind you, giving up still means he’s been trying to defend his “religious freedom” from “discrimination” by sponsoring the same sorts of “religious freedom” laws seen in Indiana and North Carolina (that have worked out so well for those states’ local economies). On other issues, McCarter says he is “pro-life without apologies”, and supports the potentially disastrous idea of establishing a flat tax. McCarter also has voted against raising the minimum wage in Illinois during the greatest period of income inequality in the United States in almost a century. Kyle McCarter grew ambitious enough in this past election cycle to challenge U.S. House Rep. John Shimkus and see if he couldn’t inject some fresh, even somehow-even-more-conservative blood into the Republican-controlled House. McCarter relentlessly attacked Shimkus on his broken promise, long ago to only serve three terms in Congress, and now he’s on his eleventh term, citing his own dedication to that issue by saying he would not be running for office again in the 2018 midterms for a fourth term for his Illinois State Senate seat. He lost to the veteran climate-change denier, Shimkus, by over twenty points in the 2016 GOP Primary. McCarter did not file for re-election by the deadline or the 2018 elections, but as we feared, in spite of his rampant homophobia, the Trump administration has nominated him to be Ambassador to Kenya, because of course they found employment for this bigoted ****stain. We’re going to go ahead and set aside his profile at this time and go ahead and take a look at a different kooky Republican today instead. (Current crazy/stupid scoreboard, is now 754-40, since this was established in July 2014.)



    Peter Boykin
    Welcome to the 754th original “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” profile, where today we’ll be taking a look at Peter Boykin, a 2018 candidate for District 58 in the North Carolina House of Representatives. Our first and most definitive evidene that Boykin might be a wee bit unbalanced is that he is a former webcam model paid to masturbate for money, is the founder of “Gays for Trump”, and is, of course, showing his support for white nationalism in the above photo. There’s also the fact that Boykin is so LGBTQ-friendly that he defends Mike Pence’s record on LGBTQ rights, calls transgender troops in the U.S. military “mentally challenged”, called for the “T” to be removed from LGBTQ, and warned that transgender military service members would use their service weapons to slaughter their fellow soldiers:

    We’ll also add that Boykin has been an emcee for an Anti-Muslim hate group, Act for America, at events in North Carolina to fear-monger about Islam, where he gave big shout-outs to the white supremacist groups Identity Evropa and the milita group, the Oath Keepers, and the Soldiers of Odin (another organization the Southern Poverty Law Center has identified as a hate group).

    Peter Boykin was crushed by over 50 points by Amos Quick, the Democratic incumbent in the 2018 elections. His candidacy will hopefully be the end of his fifteen minutes of fame, but we’re not going to be shocked if he’s dragged on Fox News when Donald Trump says something homophobic during the 2020 election campaign.

    When the 'will of the people' consists of putting a gun to the country's head and pulling the trigger I'd try and avoid that too.
    The most logical option at this point is to cancel the whole bloody thing.

    Not enough people want this, theres no plan to do this successfully that doesn't involve crippling the nation, the only politicians pushing for this are cranks, geriatrics and those with a hell of a lot of self interest.

    Yes, but punishing the trans is more important, you see. Just ask any TERF on the internet.

    1 GOP Rep Is Keeping Millions In Disaster Relief From Americans Who Need It

    Rep. Chip Roy of Texas stalled a bill that would give billions to areas recovering from hurricanes, flooding, tornadoes and wildfires. Oh, WBEEEEEEEE....!

    The Trumpification Of The IRS

    The Internal Revenue Service is starting to look like the partisan tool that Republicans accused it of being during the Barack Obama administration.

    The Donald Trump administration has assumed more control than its predecessors over how the agency writes tax regulations, ordered unpaid IRS workers to process tax refunds during the government shutdown, intervened to block Democrats’ request for the president’s tax returns, and, as we learned this week, buried a staff memo outlining how the agency should respond to such requests.

    Trump Indicates He May Revisit Pardoning Accused War Criminals After Stinging Attacks

    The president appears to be taking a step back following an outcry from veterans and former military officials. Oh, yes, let's ignore the very people against such pardons. That's supporting the troops!

    **********

    Trump Defies Congress And Invokes Emergency To Sell Arms To Saudis, Senators Say

    Congressional opposition to military support for Saudi Arabia has been growing, and lawmakers have blocked about $2 billion in weapon sales. Oh, yes, let's sell arms to a country who's government was behind the brutal murder of a journalist.

    Tammy Baldwin Rips Trump For $62 Million In Farm Aid To ‘Corrupt’ Brazilian Company

    JBS, the largest meatpacking company in the world, is owned by two billionaire brothers under investigation by the Justice Department. Not only is Trump NOT draining the swamp, he's overflowing the motherfucker!
