    They want us to believe that documents "disappeared". Documents they had on a laptop.

    Like... it's the digital age. The ability to "lose" the documents would either be bulls***, or take the most incompetent computer users to do.

    As incompetent as Hunter Biden would supposedly have had to have been to take 3 laptops with supposedly incriminating information on them across the country, get them wet, and leave them with a blind Trump supporter with Rudy Giuliani on speed dial.

    A drunken marmoset is more tech savvy than anyone in the "Hunter Biden's laptop conspiracy" group.

    Man, it really looks like some people are getting what they had coming.

    Glenn Greenwald quit his own blog, The Intercept, because they refused to publish whatever smear he had written to take down Biden.


    Probably something with Hunter Biden eating Tara Reade's baby at Goldman Sachs.

    On this date, in both 2014, as well as in 2015, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" profiled Bobby Jindal, the former Governor of Louisiana, and absolute bottom-feeder in the polling for the 2016 GOP Presidential Primary candidates. Bobby Jindal was born Piyush Jindal, but got a man-crush on Bobby Brady on the Brady Bunch and renamed himself. While Gov. Jindal’s call to his colleagues in the GOP to “stop being the stupid party” sounds like a brave call for better discourse, he might want to practice what he preaches, considering he’s fighting to have creationism taught in schools instead of evolution, and in 2014, refused to answer if he believed in evolution with the defense that he’s “not an evolutionary biologist”. That defense might have worked better if Jindal’s degree wasn’t in biology. But Jindal’s religious bent should come as less of a surprise when you learn that in 1994, Jindal wrote an article in the New Oxford Review about noticing a classmate who had a smell of sulfur about her, so he and some classmates performed an amateur exorcism on her that had the side effect of curing her skin cancer. If that isn’t quite KOO-KOO for Cocoa Puffs enough for you, Jindal also has come out repeatedly in defense of Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty, no matter what homophobic things he’s saying at the time. Then there’s just Jindal’s record as governor of Louisiana, where he inherited a post-Hurricane Katrina state and brought it from the bottom in most statistical categories like job creation, crime rates, high school graduation rates to numbers elevated so far that they have stayed in the bottom five in the nation. During Jindal's brief time in the 2016 Presidential Primary, he admitted that if president, he would use the IRS as a tool to attack Planned Parenthood, said President George W. Bush "made absolutely the right decision on Iraq", and said he would force the resignations of House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and all 535 members of Congress. Just before his campaign ended, he came up with the solution to defeat ISIS, a "no fly zone", which he had immediately pointed out to him would not work so well, since ISIS doesn't have an air force. Jindal will be remembered as one of the worst governors of the past decade in terms of job creation, education, and poverty of his citizens, which is amazing because he inherited a state recovering from Hurricane Katrina and never raised its fortunes any higher, really.

    In both 2016, as well as 2017, “Crazy Stupid Republican of the day profiled former sex term Louisiana Congressman Charles Boustany,… Whoops. Freudian slip. I mean six terms. But if you believe current headlines, perhaps it is the sex terms of Rep. Boustany that need to be addressed, as his name was alleged to be tied to a prostitution scandal back in Louisiana. As the story goes, in a book called "Murder on the Bayou" about several prostitutes who have turned up dead in Boustany's district, is alleged that Boustany was a frequent customer of those sex workers, and several of them worked out of a hotel owned by Martin Guillory, a field representative for Boustany prior to their deaths. The veracity of the accusation has not been verified, but Boustany insists it was all a "dirty tricks" attack from fellow U.S. House Rep. John Fleming, as both were candidates in the GOP Primary for the U.S. Senate seat for Louisiana that was up for grabs with the retirement of David Vitter, a guy who truly knows how to be implicated in a prostitution scandal. Boustany is also noteworthy for, prior to running for office, being a rather terrible doctor. He was sued for malpractice eight times, twice being found at fault, and what makes that even more relevant is Congressman Boustany also is the co-sponsor of the provision of the Affordable Care Act that had Medicare money being approved for end-of-life counseling... also known as the thing Republicans themselves wet their pants over, and fearmongered to the public as being "death panels". Charles Boustany remained utterly inflexible about gun control, which isn't uncommon for a Republican, but when you consider the fact that he personally has recently had a relative shot in a mass shooting, it just seems callous. When John Houser went on a killing spree at a movie theatre in Lafayette, Louisiana in 2015, Boustany's cousin was among those wounded... and yet, he still is unmoved to enact any gun control legislation, including the kinds of improved background checks that would have prevented Houser from carrying out his mass shooting in the first place. But his story gets even weirder... at one point back in the mid 1990s, Rep. Boustany was a victim of a fraud scheme... because he was trying to buy a title of British nobility (really). Two con artists ran a scam where they hoodwinked dumb wealthy Americans like Congressman Boustany into believing they could buy an English title for a hefty sum. That would earn him not just the right to refer to himself as "Lord Boustany", but would grant him a seat to ride in the Queen Mum's 100th Birthday celebration. Most millionaires would just write the money off as a loss on a flight of fancy. But not Congressman Lord Boustany. Nuh uh. He filed a lawsuit that never went anywhere in Lafayette Parish, but the record is available to the public. On page 2 of he document it shows how much he paid for the Title - $18,500 - and lists both his name and that of his wife in the pleading, and why they are filing suit. Ironically, as Boustany tried to pay to alter the record to make it show he was a British noble, he was also one of many Republicans who questioned the circumstances of the birth and citizenship of President Obama publicly back in a 2009 interview, before quickly backpedaling when he was called out on it. Charles Boustany finishws third in the 2016 race for the U.S. Senate seat to represent Louisiana.

    On this date in 2018, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” profiled the now-former Governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner, who was elected to a single term in office back in 2014, and has been so staggeringly incompetent at his job that he was very nearly pushed out of office in the GOP Primary while running for re-election here in 2018, winning over Jeanne Ives with only 51% of the vote to Ives’ 49%. And Jeanne Ives is a completely bats*** homophobe. Rauner tripped over his own feet and any other part of his anatomy for four years… everything that Rauner attacked former Democratic Govenror Pat Quinn on in 2014 to get elected… he’s managed to be worse. Job creation? Worse. Budget shortfalls? Worse. Violent crime, in virtually every statistical category? Worse. AND he’s not just worse on crime, he impotently tries blaming mayors for that violence rather than accept any criticism, like a true leader would. Meanwhile, as the Illinois state legislature moved to pass popular legislation like automatic voter registration, Rauner vetoed it. As teachers began to strike around the country for increased wages, the Illinois state legislature passed a salary increase to end the problem…and Bruce Rauner vetoed it. That’s par for the course because for the past four years, Rauner refused to raise taxes, and instead, wanted to run Illinois by the same kind of model with which Sam Brownback ran Kansas into the ground… by cutting “entitlements” like funding for Medicaid, public education, funding for programs addressing domestic violence, homeless youth, autism, and immigrant integration that most critics found flat-out morally wrong. He emulated Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s stupid quest to wipe out labor unions in his state, trying to pass “right to work” legislation. That’s something he didn’t campaign on, and if there’s one city where you don’t f*** with unions outside of New York, it’s Chicago. You would think that as far away from Mexico as Illinois is, that maybe the good Illini wouldn’t have to get pissed about Bruce Rauner on the issue of immigration, compared to say, most border states… and then they found out he was personally profiting from ICE detention centers that were holding children separated from their families in cages. Even the National Review considers Bruce Warner to the be the worst GOP Governor in the United States, which is amazing because that means he rated worse than people like Mary Fallin and Paul LePage. Gov. Rauner’s main survival tactic through this past year seemed to try to blame all the problems in his state on Mike Madigan, the Democratic Speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives. This included trying to blame Madigan for what happened with Nick Sauer. For those don’t know that story… Nick Sauer was appointed to a state position by Bruce Rauner to be the State Tollway Authority Board director, eventually ran for the state legislature. And, during Sauer’s first term in office, he went and carried out a revenge porn scheme by releasing nude photos of his ex-girlfriend online. When the media reported on this, and noted Rauner was behind Sauer’s rise in politics… Rauner tried blaming Sauer’s actions on a “culture of abuse” Madigan had created in the capitol. No one bought it. Everybody hates Bruce Rauner. Republicans hate him for being too moderate on abortion and LGBTQ rights. Democrats hate him for being a near billionaire who attacks any and all parts of the social safety net… Rauner was defeated in 2018 by J.B. Pritzker, and now is a forgotten man in Illinois politics.

    On this date in 2019, “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day” profiled Jason Reese, a failed 2012 candidate for district 46, as well as failed 2018 candidate to be a member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives, specifically to represent District 83. Where Reese became notorious was his second campaign, when he filed a campaign expense report that had an online porn site specializing in BDSM listed on his campaign expense report filed with the FEC. Reese used the excuse that it was just an “error” made by a staffer who accidentally cut and pasted the wrong address from the wrong web window, because THAT’S TOTALLY A THING THAT HAPPENS and that it didn’t raise questions about Reese’s campaign staff getting their rocks off to bondage porn on the clock. Now, one would think someone who’s enough of a hypocrite to claim to represent family values in a red state and yet try to list online porn as a campaign expense… well… you would think that person would gracefully step aside for another Republican right? Well, welcome to the 21st Century Republican Party, where not only will that candidate not exit from an election to help a candidate without scandal win, but GOP voters are stupid enough to still advance them out of a primary. Yup, Jason Reese won by 400 votes, and advanced to the general election in November 2018… but he at least lost to Democrat Chelsea Branham with 48% of the vote. At least Reese will have the free time to watch the continuing adventures of Hot Wife Chloe and whatever punishment she might get. In the meantime, it looks like he’s going to continue to float around the Oklahoma state legislature as a legislative aide until he can find a way to carpet-bag into a seat that comes available. For now, we will set aside his profile at this time, and take a look at another kooky Republican today instead. (Current crazy/stupid scoreboard, is now 931-45, since this was established in July 2014.


    Kathaleen Wall
    Welcome to what is the 931st original profile here at “Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day”, where we’ll be discussing Kathaleen Wall, a 2020 candidate for U.S. House of Representatives in Texas’ 22nd Congressional District, who also lost in 2018 while trying to get elected over in Texas’ 2nd Congressional District in the GOP Primary. She wasn’t messing around this year, though, dropping $8.3 million of her own money into a campaign to win a seat in Congress, a new record for anyone running for office in Texas.

    Now, a lot of people stop when they see the name Kathaleen Wall and ask, “What’s with the ‘a’ in the middle? Is that pronounced with an extra syllable, or…?”

    To that, we say, don’t make a fuss, because it’s far from the most glaring problem you should have with her candidacy. Wall is an anti-choice extremist who celebrated the news that during the Covid-19 outbreak, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared abortions “non-essential care”, and she took to Twitter to say, “Covid-19 will save more lives this week than it takes!” Which, even if you believe life begins at conception (she does), would not even be remotely mathematically true.

    Wall was still in the top 2 in the GOP Primary against front-runner Troy Nehls, and decided that she should make up the huge deficit she faced in the first round of voting by putting all her chips in on “racist Covid-19 conspiracy theories” and running an ad that blamed the spread of the disease on China. The ad declares, “China poisoned our people” as a graphic shows a world map where arrows labeled “Chinese Virus” travel across the Pacific and to the United States. After the ad praises Trump for using this racist term, a narrator promises that Wall would “cut off trade, aid, and support to China.” It concludes in calling the world’s largest country—and our nation’s largest trading partner “a criminal enterprise masquerading as a sovereign nation.”

    When that advertisement didn’t shift the polling numbers to her favor, Kathaleen Wall followed up by using her own money for a new commercial that featured a sex-trafficking victim and her family hammering her opponent, Nehls for failing to protect them while he was still a sheriff. That amounted to little difference, as Wall still lost the runoff to Nehls by 40 points.

    If her 2020 candidacy did anything, it was lighten her wallet, and make it easier for Democrat Preston Kulkarni to beat Nehls on November 3rd. We’d thank her, but she’s still awful so we’ll pass.

    The bill is long past due on Republicans getting their asses kicked for voting against things that are, quite literally, set up to save American lives while the profit on doing the opposite personally.

    Hoping that we'll be talking about Senator Ossoff in January 2021, and for decades to come.

    How Trump waged war on his own government

    Early in the new administration, the White House wanted a big win for President Trump on one of his top campaign promises — getting rid of poor performers at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

    Scott Foster got the order from his boss, a senior political appointee: Draw up a list of underachievers and give “your best 10” so the president could announce their firing at a signing ceremony for a law allowing fast dismissals at VA.

    Foster, a seasoned personnel official, balked. The employees still had the right to due process, he argued. Within weeks, his boss tried to sack him.
    It was one of the first shots in what became an unwavering four-year war on the civil servants who have operated as the backbone of the federal government for more than a century. Career employees from diplomats to budget analysts have come under siege as they carry out the laws of Congress, attacked by a president with no government experience and portrayed as a “deep state” trying to undermine him.
    In the past four fiscal years, the Office of Special Counsel, an independent anti-corruption office, has received 20,505 complaints from federal employees alleging government wrongdoing, retaliation for whistleblowing or other improper treatment, a 26 percent jump from President Barack Obama’s first term, data shows.

    It's such a dumb argument.
    1. The victims had no power over France's foreign policy.
    2. This makes it worse for everyone, including Muslims.
    3. France is a multicultural society, not every French person's ancestors contributed to "massacres of the past"(and if they did it still doesn't justify it). One of the victims was actually of African descent, the type of people's history who this President is trying to use to scapegoat terrorists. He should be ashamed.

    By this stupid logic, all miscreants would have the right to be angry and to kill million of believers for all the massacres and oppression of atheists, apostates and all sort of disbelievers, blasphemers and "sinners" that happened in the past and still happen today, especially in muslim countries.

    Yep, definitely said the Nazi part out loud. That wasn’t a dog whistle from Lewandowski, it was an air raid siren.
