    September 2021 was a hard month. 1st Norm McDonald died and then we learned Disney is ruining Indiana Jones in 2022. Just a hard month to take. Hopefully the film tanks.

    Wow, the whole Baldwin thing is getting worse and worse. It seems that there was discord on the set just before, with the camera crew walking off, and possibly a non-union property master to save money. They were protesting working conditions. Those lawsuits look bigger and bigger. Maybe even criminal culpability. Sheesh, what a mess.

    On the link you provided, there's another link that says 'Daily Cases Graph'. If you click that link and go towards the top of the page, there's a list of all states with COVID statistics for each. If you click on 'Tot Cases/1M pop', it will sort them by which states have the most per capita infection rates. The top 10 seem to be all red states. California is #40. Even looking at new cases, California is still very low considering it's massive population.

    On this date in 2014, “Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day” looked at former Oklahoma Congressional candidate Timothy Ray Murray, the challenger to Oklahoma Congressman Frank Lucas in 2014, who after only getting 5% of the vote in the primary race for that U.S. House seat, got online to claim that Lucas had actually been publicly executed while on a diplomatic visit to Ukraine in 2011, and theat he had been "replaced", somehow. Therefore, Murray wanted Lucas' votes ceded to him. Further questioning indicated that Murray believed the current Frank Lucas running around as an "automaton" created to keep up the ruse. This isn't the plot of a sci-fi movie, this isn’t a plotline from Westworld, and Murray is obviously in need of serious psychological analysis but has thankfully fallen off the face of the earth politically.



    In 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and in 2020, that we published our first two “Fanatical Republican Extremist of the Day” profiles of the U.S. House Representative from Montana’s At-Large Congressional District, Greg Gianforte, who after several big losses in trying to become the next Governor of Montana. having started Christian ministries that have bankrolled millions of dollars toward the construction of a the 20,000 square foot Dinosaur and Fossil Museum in Glendive, Montana, that asserts to its patrons that the Earth is only 6,000 years old, and there’s no way the skeletal remains of dinosaurs on display are millions of years old, as scientific carbon-dating technology would have you believe. No, the curators assure people passing through that the fossils are but 4,300 years old (which would mean dinosaurs roamed the Earth around the time of the pharoahs) and that there’s no proof of evolution, whatsoever. Okay, maybe trying to willfully spread ignorance of science when you’re motivated by your faith on that subject doesn’t seem like it would be the most harmful thing, even in this day and age… it’s not like Greg Gianforte’s deeply held faiths are motivating him into any stupid policy decisions? Well, actually… he and his wife apparently lobbied the city of Bozeman, Montana to try and pass a city ordinance based on Indiana’s “religious freedom” laws that made it legal for Christians businesses to discriminate against the LGBT community. Gianforte is apparently dedicated enough to opposing LGBT rights that he also bankrolled the legal defense of Colorado baker Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakes, who wanted to refuse service to gay patrons (Phillips lost, of course), and further applauds Phillips for not opening his bakery on Halloween because “Christians should not promote Halloween”. If these bizarre policy calls based on his faith weren’t already troubling, there’s Greg Gianforte’s opinion on Social Security… we shouldn’t have it because he thinks “the concept of retirement is not biblical”, citing the fact that Noah built the Ark at the totally believable age of 600. Gianforte made a last ditch effort to beat Steve Bullock in the 2016 governor’s race by trying to gin up fears over Syrian refugees, and lying and claiming Bullock had been restricting gun rights (while he had actually EXPANDED gun rights in Montana as governor.) Gianforte got absolutely trounced by Bullock in their debate, showing little understanding of the law in many instances, and providing only tired and cliche Republican talking points devoid of facts. Gianforte, however, maintained support of Donald Trump even after he boasted about getting away with sexually assaulting women… which would pay off later.

    Because, just when we thought we had our last entry about Gianforte… Congressman Ryan Zinke was picked to be a member of Donald Trump’s Cabinet of Horrors, opening up a spot in Congress in a special election race that wouldn’t you know it, Gianforte would run for. And even though Montana still leans extremely to the right, and the Democratic candidate, Rob Quist, had some sketchy details in his background, it was nip and tuck as the last few days to that special election in Montana, with Donald Trump endorsing Gianforte, because he tolerated Trump’s sexual assault in the build up to the previous election. And… then things got weird. Weird even for a guy who thinks Jesus was fending of T-Rexes. You see, on the eve of the election, Greg Gianforte lost his goddamned mind, picked up a reporter from the Guardian, Ben Jacobs , body-slammed him and screamed at him.

    This is normally unacceptable behavior for a politician, and more fitting for how a heel WWE wrestler would resolve being confronted with questions they don’t like. Well, Gianforte was charged with assault, pleaded guilty to avoid jail time that would make him a rather ineffective Congressman, and then spent most of his few months in office dodging a court’s order that he still would need to take a mug shot. Spoiler Alert: He still had to get a mug shot.

    While serving as a member of Congress and voting for virtually every GOP backed bill that came his way, on February 14th, 2018, Gianforte celebrated Valentine’s Day by blurting out as many conspiracy theories as he can in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo to try to cast doubt on the Mueller investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with them. As one does when in a romantic mood.

    Only a term and a half into his Congressional career, Greg Gianforte opted to take another crack at running for Governor of Montana in 2020, in spite of the possibility that Gianforte’s fanatical dumb ass committed insider trading while a member of the House, trying to profit off of the Covid-19 pandemic. Which, considering he has that inside information, you’d think he would follow the recommendations of health experts and wear a mask and not attend large gatherings of people, like when he showed up at a local concert on October 3rd to lead the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance… and then be surprised when there was a Covid-19 spike traced back to the event.

    Regrettably, Gianforte won the race in 2020 and was sworn in as governor on January 4, 2021. A month into taking office, he continued his pro-virus Covid-19 stance, lifting Montana's statewide mask mandate and signing a bill giving liability protections to businesses and healthcare providers. In May 2021, he went even further, signing a bill into law that limited the ability of hospitals and other businesses to require that their staff be vaccinated against COVID-19, as well as prohibited businesses from requiring that customers be vaccinated in order to access facilities, becoming the only state at the time to do so. He’s also signed anti-immigrant legislation, open carry legislation, three anti-choice bills, and rounding it out, a transphobic bill to ban transgender athletes from girls sports in public schools, because why not bully trans teens while you’re at it?

    Unless he’s impeached or has some sudden mishap to change things in a hurry, Greg Gianforte’s reign of terror still has three years left on it.

    And when you research elsewhere state by state... you'll notice a trend that the states with higher vaccination rates (the blue ones) have better Covid-19 statistics per capita than ones that don't (the red ones). As well as ones that have kept mask mandates and limited social gathering size...

    Go figure, masks and vaccines work. WHO KNEW? (People who believe science.)

    Nevada Republican who claimed someone stole dead wife’s ballot is charged with voter fraud

    The case was one that local and national Republican leaders touted last year as concrete evidence of voter fraud.

    Haha so technically they were right.

    The sick thing is the GOP will keep trying to push voter restriction bills claiming all the fraud that happened. Ignoring that they were part of it.

    Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas convicted on all counts for illegal campaign contributions


    Lev Parnas, a one-time associate of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, was convicted Friday on charges that he illegally funneled money to U.S. political campaigns in an attempt to win favors and boost a fledgling marijuana business.

    A Manhattan jury delivered the verdicts against the Soviet-born operative, who also worked with Giuliani to smear political rivals challenging former President Donald Trump.

    Parnas was found guilty along with co-conspirator Andrey Kukushkin as part of a scheme to "manipulate the United States political system for their own financial gain," Manhattan U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said.
    Perhaps Rudy will be next, no?

    The wild story of the Dave Chappelle situation continues.

    It appears the organizer of the Netflix event has a history of saying terrible stuff on Twitter from a few years ago.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.opi...e-preston/amp/

    Also Chappelle and his manager claim he tried to have a sit down with the Netflix employees angry at his special. But they never would meet him. (She claimed he ghosted her , they are claiming no he did contact Netflix for that)

    Sure, sure. Chapelle's still made transphobic comments, though, and will face zero consequences for that.

    Just wanna share the headline of the front page of the website you were just on.

    Liberals and Congress supporters fantasize about sending Hindus to Nazi like camps once Modi is no longer PM, justify using rape as political tool

    Okay. This was funny.

    https://twitter.com/sundersays/statu...98356538576916

    Twitter has produced a paper on how algorithms amplify of political content
    - In 6 of 7 countries (except Germany), algorithm boosts mainstream right party content over mainstream left content.
    - Reasons unknown.
    - this effect is strongest in the UK
    Amplifies right wing content except in Germany where they ban nazis.

    BUT THE REASON FOR THE RIGHT WING AMPLIFICATION IS OTHERWISE UNKNOWN YOU GUYS

    Yup. We actually have a completely different system on reporting tweets from the rest of the world, based on our hate speech laws and other parts of the penal code.
