TX Dems Involved in ‘Fleeing’ Stunt Come Down with COVID-19

Could it have been during that mask-less, chartered flight to DC?

This is one of those times in which American political theater stands squarely at the intersection of coincidence and comeuppance, as if the universe has made a ruling on what is truly appropriate behavior for our elected officials.

The situation in question comes as a number of Democratic legislators from Texas have fled the Lone Star State in order to prevent the passage of a bill that they didn’t care for, but was drafted by other elected officials appointed by we the people.

Worse still, they appeared to be gloating about the stunt, taking selfies on their chartered flight to Washington DC, massless, and guzzling Miller Lite in the process.

Several of the Texas Democrats who fled the state capital to avoid voting on an election integrity bill have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Three of the 60 Texas House Democrats tested positive for the virus while staying in Washington, D.C., according to Texas House Democratic Caucus leadership.

One of the members found out about their positive test late on Friday evening but did not have symptoms, officials say. All House members were notified of the positive tests and were all tested themselves immediately.

The flight to Washington has been lambasted by the people of Texas, with many noting that their votes supplied the state Republican Party with the numbers needed to pass the bills that their constituents are clamoring for.

This pedantic stunt by the Democrats simply usurps the power of the voter, and is an aberration of our national belief in a government that is of, for, and by the people.

As If The Matt Gaetz Case Couldn’t Get Any Weirder…

This case has more twists and turns than snake convention.

Published

Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has done something astounding during his brief career in politics:  Come up with a scandal so bizarre that Hollywood would have deemed a fictional re-telling of the tale “too unbelievable”. The story so far, (which has been evolving in perpetuity), is that Gaetz and a friend had participated in the trafficking of underage girls for sex, (albeit unknowingly), and that this story came to light after Gaetz was unable to help an extortionist search for a long-missing FBI agent. Or something thereabouts.  The accounts vary wildly in the case. Now, as if things couldn’t get any stranger, a new angle has emerged in the case. A sugar daddy website linked to the sex-trafficking investigation of Matt Gaetz publicly weighed in on the scandal, saying the lawmaker has never been registered on the site in search of young women. The unusual move by the web site SeekingArrangement puts some distance between Gaetz and the accusation against him. The site had been caught up in the Gaetz case because it had reportedly been used by the GOP lawmaker and another key player in the case to connect with an underage girl for sex. SeekingArrangement, which helps “sugar babies” connect online with men, released a statement because of yet another odd twist in the case: The former mistress of golfer Tiger Woods sued the website claiming it wrongfully terminated her contract as the company’s spokesperson. The plaintiff, Rachel Uchitel, said she was fired because SeekingArrangement was in damage control due to the investigation into Gaetz, which is unrelated to her lawsuit. Gaetz has maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal, but a plea deal from one of his alleged accomplices has some wondering if the Sunshine State lawmaker isn’t in some serious trouble.

George Soros Drops $1M to Defund Police During Major Crimewave

Wow.

George Soros

If you were to ask around in the farther-flung corners of the conservative internet, you’d not find much high praise for George Soros. The liberal billionaire has been spending much of his time, (and wealth), bullying the sociopolitical system into leaning to the left, and he hasn’t been trying to hide it at all.  This has made him a bit of a boogeyman within conservative circles, and rightly so. His latest bit of “philanthropy” appears to fall right in line with his previous maneuvers. Liberal mega-donor George Soros has directed $1 million to an activist group attempting to defund the police as violent crime surges in major urban centers across the nation. Soros sent the million dollars via his Color Of Change PAC on May 14, according to Federal Election Commission files obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The organization describes itself as “the nation’s largest online racial justice organization” and actively engages in efforts to defund police departments such as spreading an online petition calling for “divesting from and dismantling the systems that unjustly harm Black people.” The group also backed a push by the Milwaukee City Council to defund the police. And they aren’t mincing their words. “Policing is a violent institution that must end,” the group’s president wrote in a statement supporting the move. “We imagine a country where there is enough money to educate our children, care for our sick and feed those who are financially unstable. Defunding the police allows for this vision.” The move comes amid a massive crime spike in liberal cities such as Atlanta, Chicago, and New York.
