They Are Lining Up.

Well, another Republican is out.

Arizona Republican Rep. Trent Franks is expected to resign, Roll Call reported Thursday afternoon. An Arizona Republican told the digital political outlet that his resignation is likely tied to unspecified allegations of inappropriate behavior. “There’s been rumors swirling around him for years, at least in 2012,” the Republican source said. “And if this turns out to be true there won’t be that many people who are surprised.” Franks’ office said he will make an announcement on Thursday.

Franks is a pro gun, anti abortion, flat tax, anti gay, goofy talking fool.  He was not a fan of President Obama, calling him “an enemy of humanity.”  And other stuff —

“Obama’s first act as president of any consequence, in the middle of a financial meltdown, was to send taxpayers’ money overseas to pay for the killing of unborn children in other countries. Now, I got to tell you, if a president will do that, there’s almost nothing that you should be surprised at after that. We shouldn’t be shocked that he does all these other insane things. A president that has lost his way that badly, that has no ability to see the image of God in these little fellow human beings, if he can’t do that right, then he has no place in any station of government and we need to realize that he is an enemy of humanity.”

Oh how the haughty crumble.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

Just In Case You Missed It

There was another school shooting today.  You can find it tucked under the fold after Franken, California fires, Hezbollah responding to the Trump foolishness, and more Franken.

Two students were killed after gunfire erupted early Thursday at a New Mexico high school, according to law enforcement authorities.

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office said the person believed to have opened fire at Aztec High, a school of about 1,000 students near the Colorado border, is also dead.

It doesn’t even make the news anymore.

Thanks to Deb for the heads up.

Oh No, Texas Wins Again

I Ain’t Buying It

The official White House explanation of Trump’s slurred speech seems a little … well, unfreekingbelieveable.

“His throat was dry. There’s nothing to it,” White House spokesman Raj Shah said when asked to explain why President Trump garbled “God bless the United States” at the end of his remarks on Wednesday recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and announcing plans to build a U.S. Embassy in the disputed city.

The other explanation was that he’s wearing false teeth.  That could be true because it would fit right in. Fake hair. Fake tan. Fake teeth. Fake neuron synapses.

None of those, however, explain the slurred signature.

 

Personally, I think maybe he drank that gift from Vladimir Putin. Maybe?

Thanks to Bunny for the heads up.

Get The Lysol

Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, gave an award today to James O’Keefe.

 

Here ya go

Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, presented an award to conservative provocateur James O’Keefe on Wednesday for going “above and beyond in the defense of liberty.”

Thomas extended the honor to a handful of other conservative thought leaders as well, including Fox News host Sean Hannity, Turning Point USA CEO Charlie Kirk, and Judicial Watch President Thomas Fitton.

And the event was held at … the Trump Hotel in DeeCee.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

What Is Wrong With You, Woman?

Susan Collins got herself in a mess of trouble when she got caught lying about the tax bill.

She told Meet the Press that the tax bill would use growth to offset the tax cut so the national debt wouldn’t explode.

She cited Glenn Hubbard, Larry Lindsey, and Douglas Holtz-Eakin.

Well hell’s bells, somebody called two of them and  –

Jennifer Rubin got ahold of two of the three, Hubbard and Holtz-Eakin. Both economists denied having ever claimed the Republican tax cuts would produce enough growth to recoup the lost revenue.

So Collins headed home to people who praised her for her courageous vote against the health care repeal to face some really pissed off people.  Some met her at the airport and turned their backs to her.  And it’s continuing.

An electrician, a nurse, a senior, and a veteran were arrested at Senator Susan Collins’ Bangor office Monday evening for refusing to leave until the Republican lawmaker promised to pull her support for the GOP “tax scam.”

“We are not trying to cause trouble, we are trying to be heard and represented,” Tina Davidson, a disability rights activist and veteran, said.

So Collins, the last Republican moderate, jumped onboard a sinking ship and is now cuddling to the donor class.

May God have mercy on her soul.

Thanks to SGray for the heads up.
