Draining the Swamp

This is one way of emptying out that cesspit of nastiness and vileness that seems to breed all sorts of scaly and slimy critters. Too bad it takes so long and the filth gets to take away the accrued pensions unjustly earned through iniquitous activities.
I care not a nit for which party they belong; “Off with their heads” to quote the Red Queen.

Rep. Trent Franks Announces His Resignation from Congress

Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) released a statement Thursday announcing his resignation from Congress, citing a conversation involving surrogacy that made female staffers uncomfortable.

The House Ethics Committee is reviewing the incident, Franks wrote, saying that in the current climate he would rather spare himself and his loved ones the “public excoriation” that would involve and will be leaving Congress as of January 31, 2018.
House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) office released a statement Thursday saying Ryan was informed of “credible claims of misconduct” against Franks last Wednesday and then spoke with Franks, who did not deny the claims.

“Subsequent conversations took place this week between the speaker and Rep. Franks leading to the congressman’s decision to offer his letter of resignation,” according to the statement.

Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ), will call a special election to fill the position since Franks’ resignation is more than six months ahead of the general election. [snip]

In his parting statement, of course, this idiot made mention how he cares about women and worked to maintain a safe and stable work place...

Idiot’s Corner

Once more this Texas Turkey is opening his mouth and dumb is falling out. Back when he was doing the Nightly Fables he used to sign off with “Courage”. That translated into “Bullshit”. Yes it’s good old Dan Rather, still babbling after all these years.

Flashback-Dan Rather on Clinton Rape Charge: ‘Happened A Long Time Ago,’ ‘Let’s Move On’

In 1998, Juanita Broaddrick claimed that, in 1978 Bill Clinton, then the Attorney General of Arkansas, raped her in a hotel room. The next year, CBS anchor Dan Rather declared that, even if true, “it happened a long time ago” (21 years) and it was time to “move on.”

Noting the media double-standard in covering such allegations, a Newsbusters flashback blog reports:

“Take, for example, our report in 1999 that not-yet-disgraced CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather provided the Exact Opposite of the Matt Dowd philosophy. It was the Don Imus radio show — then simulcast on MSNBC — on February 23, 1999. When women cry rape, it doesn’t matter whether it’s true. It’s too dated for the truth to matter, and besides, we think the American people are tired of all these accusations”:

DON IMUS: Even this Juanita Broaddrick thing that, this interview that the people over there at NBC News have been sittin’ on for some reason, who knows but —

DAN RATHER: Well, I think the reason is pretty obvious that they’re, they don’t call me and tell me why they run or don’t run these things, but I think it’s pretty obvious. They are nervous about, number one, whether this information is accurate, whether it’s really true or not.

And then number two, “Even if it does it turns out to be true, it happened a long time ago and number three, they’ve gotta be figuring maybe, just maybe the American public has heard all they want to hear about this and are saying you know, “Next. Let’s move on to the next thing.”

One can extrapolate this to Al Franken’s funny grope of 2006 too, right? Why not, that occurred in the dim past and why Al is a nice and funny guy and a good Progressive Jackass Party hack. By Dan’s thinking anything more than 20 minutes old is ancient history.

What then Dan, do we do about Roy Moore? That is a bit more than 20 minutes old. We talking about three (3) maybe four (4) decades, considerably more aged than that wanker Willy Clinton’s toiling in the wild oats. And no allegations of rape have emerged either. No sheep, sisters, first cousins or mothers have said boo.

You’re witnessing a political hatch job typical of the Left and abetted by the GOPe.

Biased Agendas

Just a couple of questions about this Roy Moore blow up in the news. How is it that Moore’s accusers from three decades or more ago are treated as pure as the latest dusting of snow when we know some of them are Democrat campaign workers, one for Hillary’s 2016 criminal run.

When Bill Clinton’s accusers came out in the open, they were treated in the media as trailer trash, a batch of bimbos and worse by Hillary herself. The unbiased media (we know they are, they tell us they are) fawned all over Bill and called Bill’s accusers everything but whores. (I didn’t see that in print at least)

The State Owned Media is leading the Lefty minions in the typical format of accuse, he’s guilty, hang him and then we’ll have a trial. The GOP is going along because they are terrified that Moore is the first of the new wave of voter rejections of establishment clones. The GOP brought this on to themselves; 2018 is going to tell them what the voters think of their record.

If Moore does win his race, and those accusers are found to be fabulists, then what does the GOP do? Moore isn’t going to instantly become buddies with those who tried to trash him and he certainly won’t be voting for McConnell’s oh so wonderful ideas.

Hell, Jerry Lee Lewis married a 13 year old but then he just played the piano, he didn’t run for office.

Making America Great Again

Finally some of the fools in the GOP who believe they are the elite received the word, namely this pair: Sens. Flake and Corker. Now they’re bad mouthing Trump because of their inability to see the “times, they are a’changin'”. The pair sound like a whoopee cushion as they utter their gas.

Corker, instead of being honest with the voters, was busy groveling at the feet of the fat cat donors, sucking on their toes and making sure they were happy. Now he’s not; his sinecure isn’t.

Flake figured out he couldn’t win the primary. Rather than suffer the spitballs of defeat, he quit a forehand. He won the Senate seat six years ago by lying to the voters, telling them all the brand X promises he knew he wouldn’t keep. Now he like Corker he’s as welcome as a wet fart in a white suit as he too trashes Trump.

Flake: ‘I Could Not Win in a Republican Primary’

[snip] “It is clear at this moment that a traditional conservative, who believes in limited government and free markets, who is devoted to free trade, who is pro-immigration, has a narrower and narrower path to nomination in the Republican Party, the party that has so long defined itself by its belief in those things.”

President Trump won the presidency by opposing the free trade and open borders policies advocated by the previous Obama administration — policies that Flake considers conservative.

And he wonders why he’ll lose in a primary.
Hey, Stupid, you’re in the wrong party!
