Daughters of former conservative hero testify against him in molestation case

Source: RawStory

Three of former border militiaman Chris Simcox’s daughters testified against him in the former Republican candidate’s sexual molestation trial.

Simcox is representing himself in his trial on six counts of child molestation and furnishing pornography to minors, although he’s not allowed to question the children he’s accused of abusing, reported the Phoenix New-Times.

However, the border vigilante cross-examined his adult daughter — who accused him of molesting her decades ago, when she was a child.

Hypocrites abound on the right.

Uh oh, remember when Rove/Fox were beside themselves when Obama won, election night?

How they were absolutely CERTAIN Mittster was gonna win?

My dear friend who supports Bernie (so do I but we differ on what to do if Bernie loses, he has lost his mind and will support Drumpf maybe) sent me an email today with a link to some obscure site with the following headline:

Bernie Sanders Projected To Win California With 61.25% Gaining 398 Delegates

The actual polls are of course very different, much to my dismay.

So how do you think these type of Bernie fans are going to react if Bernie loses California when THEIR sources are telling them he is going to win?

3 guesses, the first 2 dont count...stay home on election day because they were cheated.

Like I said, uh oh.

This appears to be the site he is relying on

Drumpfs deportation system will require internment camps.


To prevent flight after arrest, the authorities would have to detain most immigrants awaiting deportation. Existing facilities, with about 34,000 beds, would have to be expanded to hold at least 300,000, Mr. Sandweg estimated, perhaps with tens of thousands of people in detention camps, similar to the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

But no problem, having Drumpf as president, right?

I mean both candidates are the same, right?

GOP Senator's dying wish to apologize to Muslims for Drumpf.


How about that, a staucnch right winger who wouldn't have a hard decision deciding between Drumpf and anybody in the Democratic party.

I mean that is clearly the implication of his apology.

You all hardly noticed it, which is not surprising. House GOP SHAME SHAME SHAME!


I can see why it was barely noticed here on this board, I really can.

But for those who care about OTHERS and how politics affects OTHERS and not yourself so much, this is important.

Shouts of "Shame, shame, shame," erupted in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday as Republican lawmakers narrowly defeated legislation to protect the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees of government contractors.

The measure, an amendment to a veterans and military construction spending bill introduced by New York Democrat Sean Maloney, initially had enough "yes" votes to pass, according to the count in the House chamber.

But House Republican leaders extended the time allowed for the vote as they urged enough party members to change their positions to defeat it by a vote of 213 to 212.

Now the bill would have been a waste of time if a non Democrat was in the White House, because a non Democrat would never do something to piss off the bigoted base that elected them.

Bernie supporters organizing nationwide House/Senate campaign for 2018.

Lead is your enemy. Black Panthers were your friends.


Lead-poisoning prevention once had its partisans too, but they were marginal and rapidly stifled. During the 1960s, the Black Panthers and the Puerto Rican activist group the Young Lords set up community health clinics and carried out screening programs for tuberculosis and sickle cell anemia as well as lead poisoning
