Kansas AG Candidate in Hot Water After Posting Sick Image Against Police

Swain has earned a reputation in her state for being vehemently anti-cop, which makes the posting of this photograph even more disturbing.

Kansas attorney general candidate Sarah Swain — who is a Democrat — has found herself embroiled in a potentially devastating controversy after posting a disgusting photograph featuring comic book superhero Wonder Woman choking a police officer with her lasso around his neck.

Swain has earned a reputation in her state for being vehemently anti-cop, which makes the posting of this photograph even more disturbing.

Since the flack started rolling in, Swain has issued an apology for the negative attention the poster has attracted.

The poster, which has hung in Swain’s law office for several years, featured a Wonder Woman-looking character lassoing a cop, binding him across his chest and around his neck.

The poster, which went viral on social media, drew so much criticism that she issued a statement on the matter, and the Kansas Democratic Party spoke out against the offending poster, according to KWCH-TV.

On Monday, the party said that promoting violence against police officers should disqualify Swain’s candidacy for attorney general and called for her to end her campaign.

Swain issued a statement Monday in response to the mounting criticism and calls for her to end her campaign for attorney general.

According to the station, Swain said:

In the criminal justice system, truth is at the heart of every case because the Constitution ensures that each of us is presumed innocent until proven guilty. As a criminal defense attorney for nearly 17 years, I have seen firsthand the injustice that can be doled out at the hands of less-than-honest police officers. I have been involved in many cases where the truth was ignored and people’s lives were destroyed. These are just some of the experiences that eventually led me to run for Attorney General of Kansas.

For the last several years, a poster has hung inside the front door of my law office. It shows a female superhero wielding a lasso of truth and using the lasso to force the truth from the mouth of a police officer, a metaphor for the rigors of cross-examination, which forms the cornerstone of a zealous defense. I understand that this picture has been misconstrued by many as advocating for violence against the police and for that I apologize. I am not anti-law enforcement; I am pro-truth. And I do not condone violence in any form.

As my campaign for attorney general moves ahead, I look forward to hearing from the citizens of Kansas about the critical issues facing our Attorney General and engaging in public discourse about my platform, which includes a commitment to true criminal justice reform, proper funding of our public school system, the legalization and/or decriminalization of marijuana and CBD, ending the war on drugs, increasing transparency surrounding police shootings of citizens, and much more.

Swain’s apology went something like this:

“I understand that this picture has been misconstrued by many as advocating for violence against the police, and for that I apologize,” Swain said. “I am not anti-law enforcement. I am pro-truth. And I do not condone violence in any form.”

This photograph is disgusting in every single way, not only for the violence it demonstrates toward police, but also in the sheer arrogance it reeks of.

Does Swain really believe she is some sort of superhero fighting for truth and justice with her obvious negative attitude toward law enforcement officers? If she is really pro-truth, does that mean she’s pro-life too? You know, seeing as how the truth is, human life begins at conception?

Aren’t the vast majority of Democrats and radical liberals like Swain relativists, believing that what’s true for you is true for you and what’s true for your neighbor is true for him? In that case, there is no objective truth, thus how can she know with absolute surety what the officers she claims to stand against is wrong?

The point is, the picture is distasteful and if she is really this hateful toward police, she should not be allowed to continue running for attorney general.

AOC May Have Committed ‘Major Ethics Violation’ After Startling Discovery Uncovered

Kind of a big deal!

John Salvatore

Published

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend, Riley Roberts, was found to have a government email address.

Her team was quick to say that Roberts was not a member of AOC’s staff, therefore he’s not earning a salary.

From Daily Mail:

Her chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti also argued the move was normal for a spouse or partner.

He wrote: ‘He’s not paid. We have no volunteers in the office. He’s not doing any government work. He can see her calendar just like spouses/partners/family members in other congressional office.

But something’s up.

You see, Roberts is actually listed in Alexandria’s staff directory.

LOOK:

Is this a “major ethics violation?”

Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk says, yup.

Alexandria’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti openly supports a man who was an Hitler “ally.”

More from Liberty Nation:

Saikat Chakrabarti is a highly motivated, smart guy. A Harvard grad, he founded a web tools company, Mockingbird. He is a founder of Justice Democrats, the PAC set up with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur, was instrumental in getting AOC elected, and is presently going through congressional training to learn how to become an effective chief of staff for the Dems’ golden girl.

Based on a recent clothing choice, Chakrabarti might justifiably be considered a Nazi sympathizer. But really? Well, yes. In his latest love-fest video for AOC, Chakrabarti is sporting a tee-shirt that features a portrait of Subhas Chandra Bose. Not familiar with this former Indian head of state? Here a few facts:

-Bose was an ally of Adolf Hitler and met with him personally in 1942.

-Bose founded the Free India Legion (FIL) made up of troops captured by Nazi Field Marshal Rommel’s Afrika Korps.

-The FIL swore an oath to Hitler and was under SS command.

-Bose teamed up with the Japanese in 1943.

-Bose was an admirer of the USSR and sought to implement its authoritarian practices in India.

At a press conference for Sunshine Movement, which is far-left, Alexandria compared her midterm election victory to the Civil Rights Movement.

There are no words to explain this ignorance. It would be funny if it was meant to be parody.

WATCH:

She also thought her win was comparable to the moon landing.

AOC: “This is not just about a clean new deal. This is about a new deal for the United States of America.

Because in every moment when our country has reached the depths of darkness, in every moment when we were at the brink, at the cusp of an abyss and we did not know if we would be capable of saving ourselves, we have. We’ve done it. We’ve dug deep and we’ve done what we thought was impossible.

Former Governor Mike Huckabee had some thoughts:

Here’s another wild clip featuring the gaffe-prone Democrat Socialist:

AOC also needs everyone to know that “people are going to die” if something isn’t done about climate change.

Maybe Alexandria didn’t get the message that large outfits often falsify their data to make it seem as if things are worse than they are?

Ugh. It’s going to be a long two years covering this one.

Alexandria is apparently looking for attention, sending what was clearly a bold-faced lie on Twitter.

See it:

What’s the problem?

Republican consultant Arthur Schwartz has the answer:

Facepalm.

JIG IS UP! Chicago Police Believe Jussie Smollett Paid Men to Orchestrate Assault

And the Oscar goes to…

And the Oscar goes to…Jussie Smollett for “Hate Crime!”

Just as many people suspected from the start, sources within the Chicago Police Department now firmly believe the “Empire” actor’s story was a complete and utter hoax.

What will liberals have to say about this?

Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the investigation tell CNN that Chicago Police believe actor Jussie Smollet paid two men to orchestrate an assault on him that he reported late last month.

The sources told CNN the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement.

[…]

The sources told CNN there are records that show the two [Nigerian] brothers purchased the rope found around Smollett’s neck at a hardware store in Chicago.

Smollett even reimbursed the brothers for buying the rope.

Originally, the report was that Smollett was attacked by two men who yelled, “This is MAGA country.” Likewise, Smollett told authorities that his attackers were white.

Not long after, Smollett’s neighbors doubted his story and ABC Chicago said Smollett may have staged the attack.

On Smollett’s neighbors, via New York Post:

CHICAGO — Nearly two weeks after “Empire” star Jussie Smollett claimed he was the victim of a racist, homophobic attack, cops have yet to identify any suspects — and some people in his tony Chicago neighborhood are growing skeptical.

[…]

“I’ve been in this neighborhood five years. I don’t believe it, not around here … Half the people are gay and the other half are black.”

WATCH:

From ABC Chicago, who noted that Smollett staged the attack with the help of others because he was being written off the show.

From ABC 7:

Multiple sources have told ABC7 Eyewitness News that police are investigating whether Smollett and the two men staged the attack allegedly because Smollett was being written off of “Empire.”

ABC’s Robin Roberts interviewed Smollett, where he proceeded to stick to the lie.

Jussie said he was baffled that people didn’t beleive him. Apparently, he’s justt not thatt good of an actor, huh?

If Smollett was being written off the show prior to this insane “hate crime,” what will happen to him now?

Will social justice warriors voice their support? Will he maybe get his own spinoff?

How about Smollett pays for his crime and serves his time? That seems like the most appropriate response.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for lefties to say they were sorry for jumping on the Jussie badwagon, though.

They’ll hold strong togetther and atempt to take the conversattion toward “racism in America.”

Count on it.
