    The shocking thing is not that a GOP nut job thinks this is true.

    The shocking thing is she did not link that as being part of the Green New Deal and missing the chance to go on a rant about AOC.

    I never understand this level of stupidity really. Even racists have to know if you are doing stupid stuff like this on social media it is going to get you fired. I mean and the "friends and co workers that "liked" and laughed. Racism and sub humanity aside, what idiots.

    It was only a matter of time. A candidate for Governor in Colorado has a proposal: create an in-state electoral college that will systematically over-weight rural votes and thus make it almost impossible for a Republican not to win the governorship as well as other statewide offices. Basically, counties take the place of states and Colorado has a ton of rural counties where very few people live. From what I can tell, he’s not the most likely nominee. But he won the top spot on the primary ballot at the state convention. So he’s not some random gadfly either. In any case, Gov. Jared Polis is popular and seems like a shoe-in for reelection. But this seems like the leading edge of the broader trend.

    See, he said he "could" decertify every machine, not that he would. That's that plausible deniability there.

    You all really need the Democrat to win that race so that he can replace Fettermann if he wins but has another stroke.

    This may not have been posted. But the man who attempted to stab Dave Chappelle is up for attempted murder.

    He tried stabbing a room mate back in December.

    In 2015, as well as 2016, and 2017, that “Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day” published profiles of Mark Reed, who on three occasions has failed to get elected to U.S. Congress to represent California’s 30th Congressional District, having gone down in defeat to Rep. Mark Sherman all three times. And we don’t mean he lost, as much as got crushed. Reed, for whatever reason in his debate against Sherman, tried attacking him and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of not being supportive enough of Israel, which is amazing in that both not only have records that show they are supportive of Israel, but they’re also both coincidentally Jewish, to boot. Reed has a website loaded with misleading information about the Affordable Care Act, his opposition to same-sex marriage, as well as climate change denial. Perhaps the best reason to not elect him to office is his long police record featuring two arrests for narcotics possession. His 2016 campaign website featured an inspirational quote from Founding Father John Adams regarding debt, that is not, in fact, something that Adams has ever actually been recorded saying. And while Reed failed in his fourth attempt at getting elected to Congress in 2018. We don’t know when he’s finally going to take a hint.

    On this date in both 2018, 2019, 2020, as well as 2021, “Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day” profiled Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who prior to winning that office in the 2014 elections, was a member of the Texas state legislature for over a decade.

    And while there’s no shortage of Texas Republicans for FRED to have profiled through the past few years, Ken Paxton earned our notice not just for the usual Fundamentalism you see from members of the Lone Star State GOP, but for the fact that while he was tasked with enforcing the law in Texas, he was simultaneously fighting an extended legal battle while being accused of committing securities fraud. But that’s really not all, as Paxton’s alleged illegal activity and all his chicanery to avoid ever going to go to trial for it until after the 2018 elections, if at all, (the indictments for white collar crime are almost three years old now) have cost a small fortune in legal fees. Legal fees which were paid for by campaign donors of Paxton, so he’s had to report “gifts” he’s received totaling over $84,000 to keep himself out of court.

    Again, this is the guy responsible with the law being enforced in Texas. Although, his interest in what the law actually is seems hyper-focused on partisan politics, as Paxton has encouraged state officials to ignore the Supreme Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges ruling, chastised school districts for respecting the gender identity of students trying to use the bathroom, and sent a “cease and desist” letter to Texas public schools for busing students eligible to vote to the polls, which has been encouraged previously in Texas since the Civil Rights movement passed over half a century ago. It seems Paxton is terrified of the thought of young people having access to our democracy.

    But Paxton is threatened by a great many things, and will flat out make things up to feign outrage over, like the time he accused a Texas school district of creating a “Muslim-only prayer room, which was in no way a part of reality. Or it could be just that Ken doesn’t see that well out of his droopy eye, or something.

    Maybe none of this should come as much of a surprise, because when you look at Paxton’s career in the Texas state legislature, there were signs he was a fanatic, like when he co-sponsored HB 3678, a bill aimed at allowing students greater expression of their religious beliefs in public schools, like say, when a teacher dared to mention that evolution is a thing. He also co-sponsored SB 14, a bill to suppress the vote in Texas via stricter Voter ID laws, voted for bills that attempted to nullify federal firearm regulations, co-sponsored legislation that would enact the failure of a conservative policy of drug testing welfare recipients, voted against HB 950, which would have guaranteed equal pay for women in Texas, and was a co-sponsor ofTexas’ HB 2 law, which was aimed at closing down all the abortion clinics in the state by creating stricter requirements for them.

    In spite of all the indictments that have held against him for years now, as well as his long track record of extremist lunacy, Ken Paxton decided not to bow out of the 2018 elections, and only narrowly won re-election, barely cracking the 50% threshhold. His trial for securities fraud has yet to begin, and his wife, Angela Paxton, is now a Texas State Senator trying to draft legislation that would exempt her husband from facing jail time for the crimes he’s committed (really). He has taken his second term in office to do such effective things such as launch an investigation into the city of San Antonio for refusing to open a Chik-Fil-A in their airport because of the company’s history of anti-LGBTQ activities, because Paxton feels they may have rejected the chicken franchise due to “religious discrimination”. https://www.kbtx.com/content/news/Te...507966181.html
    (Remember Texas, he’s spending taxpayer dollars on that investigation.)

    And, ever so slowly, the trial date approaches for Ken Paxton, and yet he’s still not resigned, using his office during one of the more pressing times in American history in some of the most corrupt and bizarre ways. Like how Paxton intervened on behalf of one of his political donors out of state in Colorado to try and get them an exception against a “stay out” order for non-residents of a resort community during the Covid-19 outbreak. Or how he’s been trying to fight against calls to vote by mail during the pandemic to prevent the spread of the virus and getting more people infected. He’s aligned so much with the Texas GOP’s insistence on “reopening the economy” that he paid the fines of a Dallas salon owner who ignored orders to keep her business shuttered during the outbreak.

    None of that was keeping the state of Texas calling for Ken Paxton to be bounced out of office, and put in jail… so he decided to go for a Hail Mary in December of 2020… after Donald Trump lost the election, he needed a state attorney general who could be leveraged into appealing the results of the 2020 presidential election to the U.S. Supreme Court… and Ken Paxton, desperate to get a pardon for securities fraud, obliged. Spoiler Alert: Like practically every legal challenge Trump had filed on his behalf, it failed. And Trump never rewards people for failure, so… no pardon for Ken Paxton. However, because he’s a corrupt, selfish prick, now Trump’s most fanatical followers had the fuel needed to inspire an attack on the Capitol on January 6th, 2021, and are still holding onto “Trump won” as a conspiracy theory. To which, Paxton claims that the attackers were not Trump supporters, but “busloads of Antifa. So, f*** you very much, Ken.

    Currently, Paxton is floundering on Fox News whenever they’ll have him with some fake conservative outrage about immigrants, or onto Newsmax to whine about Critical Race Theory, because why not poison the water in our country on his way to jail? Plus, he’s turning his back on Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for all the wrong reasons, and, but of course… he keeps getting charged with new cases of securities fraud.

    BUT WAIT, THERE’S STILL MORE!

    In January of 2022, Ken Paxton faced new charges, this time public disclosure laws, after the editors at Texas' five largest newspapers noted that under Texas’ open-records law, Paxton was required to disclose materials — including emails and texts — related to his January 2021 trip to D.C., which OF COURSE he doesn’t want out to the public, what with all the conspiracy and sedition charges that would likely be revealed if he did.

    It’s not a question of if, but when Ken Paxton goes to jail. And for which of the many crimes he’s been indicted on.
