Politics / Nevada GOP attorney general nominee advocating a Lynching
« on: June 26, 2022, 10:44:11 PM »
Nevada GOP attorney general nominee said Democrat 'should be hanging from a f*cking crane

Sigal Chattah later claimed that her comment about Nevada Democratic Attorney General Aaron Ford, who is Black, was 'tongue-in-cheek.'

Republican voters in Nevada on Tuesday picked a nominee for attorney general who once called for the lynching of the state's current attorney general, who is Black.

With 81% of the vote counted, attorney Sigal Chattah defeated fellow attorney Tisha Black in the Republican primary by a wide 51%-39.9% margin, according to the New York Times.

Chattah will face current Democratic Attorney General Aaron Ford in the general election in November.

According to texts released by Sarah Ashton-Cirillo, a former friend, in January, in April 2021 Chattah had written to her about Ford, "This guy should be hanging from a ph--king crane."

Okay.  But what do you know about hanging people from a crane?

She said later that the comment was "tongue-in-cheek" and had no racial overtones. Chattah, who immigrated to the United States from Israel at the age of 14, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal in February, "When I say to my friends, 'I'm going to hang you from a crane,' I don't literally mean I'm going to hang you from a crane. ... I would never attribute a racial context to hanging from a crane. ... That is my culture. That's what is done to people in the Middle East, to traitors. And that's just part of my vernacular."
At the age of 14, you picked up "...hanging from a f*cking crane" in your vocabulary?

Well, learn something from my vocabulary:
Nevada cranes wear strange fruit...

Ginni Thomas says she 'can't wait' to talk to Jan. 6 committee

WASHINGTON, June 16 (Reuters) - Virginia "Ginni" Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is eager to appear before the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, she told the Daily Caller news website on Thursday.

Thomas was responding to comments by the committee's chairman, Democrat Bennie Thompson, that suggested the panel would seek her testimony.

"I can't wait to clear up misconceptions. I look forward to talking to them," Thomas told the Daily Caller.

I wonder when she gives her deposition and testimony to the committee, will judge Thomas be sitting in the same chair she sat in during his confirmation hearings??

Ginni Thomas urged Mark Meadows to overturn the 2020 election by any means necessary—while her husband was ruling on cases attempting to overturn the election. A truly extraordinary level of corruption.

RFK assassin Sirhan Sirhan gets parole on 16th attempt

A Texas school district asked a Black principal to remove a photo of him kissing his white wife.  Then the community branded him a critical race theory 'boogeyman.'

Dr. James Whitfield recalled in a Facebook post that his school district once asked him to take down a photo showing him kissing his wife.

He told Insider that was just the start of a sustained harassment campaign from local residents.

At a tense public meeting in July, residents accused Whitfield of promoting "the conspiracy of systemic racism" and called for his firing.

On the day of his appointment as the principal of a Texas middle school, Dr. James Whitfield was forwarded an email from a resident of his school district that referenced a photo of him kissing his wife on the beach in Mexico, where the couple celebrated their 10-year anniversary. Whitfield is Black, and his wife is white.

According to Whitfield, in May 2019 the school district forwarded him the email, which read, "Is this the Dr. Whitfield we want as an example for our students?", and requested he remove the photo from his Facebook profile.

"I felt small, insignificant, and undervalued as a staff member," he told Insider in a phone interview.

REP Madison Cawthorn (NC-11) Tried to Board A Plan With His Glock and Ammo In His Carry-on

ASHEVILLE - U.S. House member Madison Cawthorn had his gun taken by airport police and will likely face a federal fine and loss of a special security status, local and federal officials said.

The Republican congressman representing Western North Carolina's 11th District was attempting to board a plane Feb. 13 when Transportation Security Administration workers found an unloaded gun in his carry-on bag, along with a loaded magazine, according to Asheville Regional Airport officials.

The weapon was described in a redacted incident report and police radio traffic recordings as a "Glock 9mm handgun."

Cawthorn, whose spokesman responded to questions July 30 saying he brought the gun by mistake, was not charged with any crime, according to reports and other information on the incident obtained this month through a public records request. That is a normal outcome, said spokeswoman Tina Kinsey.

WOW!! Imagine if Cawthorne was a member of "the squad" or a black muslim or one of the interpreters from Afghanistan?

We'd be at DEFCON six or seven by now!

Politics / S. Dakota National Guard for Hire!
« on: June 29, 2021, 09:27:58 PM »
Kristi Noem notes the deployment of the South Dakota National Guard to Texas “will be paid for by a private donation.” Kristi Noem has turned the S. Dakota state military into mercenaries. What if one of the guardsmen gets killed? Will that private donor pay for his life insurance and funeral?  It is morally wrong to deploy troops for political purposes using private funds.

But, as always, IOKIYAR (Its OK If You Are Republican)

Marjorie Taylor Greene apologizes for 'offensive' Holocaust comparison after visiting Holocaust museum

Marjorie Taylor green claims that she has seen the light concerning the holocaust. I say she’s Apolo- lying. Next, she’s going to say something totally outrageous against African-Americans, and in order to rehab herself she’s going to have to visit the national Museum of African-American history.

Politics / Reality Winner Released to a Halfway House
« on: June 14, 2021, 02:37:41 PM »
Reality Winner, a former National Security Agency contractor who pleaded guilty to mishandling government secrets about Russian election interference and who has long sought a pardon, has been transferred from federal prison to the custody of a halfway house to serve the rest of her sentence, her attorney said Monday.

Winner’s transfer came on June 2 and was not part of any commutation or special treatment but a scheduled shift due to good behavior, said her attorney, Alison Grinter Allen.

While she finishes her sentence, she is likely to have the option of home confinement.

“She is in the custody of the halfway house, and the halfway house can use home confinement as part of it, but it’s all at the discretion of the halfway house,” her attorney said. “She has begun the reentry process.”

The Army is investigating after a reserve officer running for Congress questioned the results of the 2020 presidential election and performed an interview while in uniform, according to a Task & Purpose report.

1st Lt. Alex Stovall, 26, recently conducted interviews with One America News Network and Gun Freedom Radio in which he spoke about running for election to the US House of Representatives to represent Arizona's 9th congressional district.

During his OAN interview, Stovall appeared to be wearing his Army uniform. In his Gun Freedom Radio interview, Stovall did not wear his uniform but referred to President Joe Biden as "this sleepy guy in office" and said he didn't believe Biden was president.

His comments and his decision to wear his uniform on OAN and use photos of himself in uniform in a political campaign ad have prompted an Army investigation, Task & Purpose reported.
