Marjorie Taylor Greene demands justice: People are 'attacking me, mocking me using Bible verses'

By David Edwards
Published June 28, 2022

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) this week demanded prosecutions because people are purportedly attacking and mocking her "using Bible verses."

On Monday, Greene invited right-wing OAN correspondent John Hines to interview her about the defacement of an anti-transgender sign posted outside her congressional office.

The lawmaker stood next to the sign reading "There are TWO genders: MALE & FEMALE" and complained that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to provide additional security.



Hey Greene...did you by chance know in science and this discovery that there are creature's that change themselves from a male to female, or female to male ....and they were created by "god" or did your school disallow this from the studies in science........you idiot.....

One bettor completed the parlay of a lifetime on Sunday night.

Back in December, a BetMGM customer used a $500 free bet and decided to put in a three-team parlay on the champions of the NFL, NBA and NHL. Nearly seven months later, it all came to fruition when the Colorado Avalanche hoisted the Stanley Cup with their win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night.

The bettor parlayed the Los Angeles Rams (+1000 to win the Super Bowl), Golden State Warriors (+600 to win the NBA title) and Avalanche (+600). The odds for that parlay were +53800, leading to a payout of $269,000.


Arizona GOP Senate Candidate: Privatize Social Security

Blake Masters is an extremist nutjob, but he also reflects the aims of the Koch Brothers.

By Frances Langum — June 27, 2022

You may recall that Blake Masters is one of those candidates that makes the Republican primaries...extra special.

Backed by both Donald Trump and Peter Thiel, for whom he works, Blake Masters has no problem blaming 'Black people' for gun violence. He also thinks the states should be allowed to ban contraception. .

He's got conflicting opinions on gay marriage which might give pause to Peter Thiel, a gay married man:


'Your body belongs to Christ': US anti-abortionists see divine hand in court ruling

By Agence France-Presse
Published June 27, 2022

Diana Villanueva's rapist took her to an abortion clinic when she was just 16 years old and told her to terminate her pregnancy.

She wasn't greeted by the crowds of protestors who often gather outside facilities in the United States to try to persuade women to change their minds.

But now, this 53-year-old Catholic wishes she had been -- because she has been haunted by the termination ever since.


So Ms. Hernandez, and Ms. Villanueva do you support rapists', and abuse of family members and incest....what part of NO do you not understand when someone say NO, and has for your God, he really is violent and what do you have to say about priests being violent to young men and woman and raping them, or does that subject matter ever not cross the spectrum ....

Voters in conservative Colorado county worry about nominating election denier for secretary of state

By Eric Bradner, CNN

Updated 6:09 AM ET, Mon June 27, 2022

Grand Junction, Colorado (CNN)Mesa County clerk Tina Peters, who has become Colorado's most prominent election denier and faces a series of legal battles after years of efforts to undermine the state's mail-in voting system, is seeking the Republican nomination in Tuesday's primary to become secretary of state.

But in the county on Colorado's Western Slope where she is barred by a district judge from performing her election-oversight duties, many voters -- including some unaffiliated voters who typically back Democrats but had voted in this year's Republican primary because of Peters' presence on the ballot -- said they want to stop her.
"Yes, there was voter fraud. She caused it," said Daria Kent, a 24-year-old teacher and unaffiliated voter in Grand Junction.


Dr. Lance Dodes: Trump is a dangerous sociopath -- but he's sane enough to stand trial

Former Harvard professor says Trump has the morality of a serial killer — but that doesn't render him insane

PUBLISHED JUNE 27, 2022 6:30AM (EDT)


The House Jan. 6 committee's public hearings have made it increasingly clear that Donald Trump and his confederates attempted a coup to nullify the results of the 2020 presidential election and, in effect, end American democracy. The coup plot involved every branch of government including the courts, Congress, the Department of Justice and (at least potentially) the military. It was nationwide and included plans to rig the Electoral College results and alter actual vote totals at the state level. Contrary to what too many public voices have continued to suggest — in a collective state of willful denial — Trump's coup plot was highly sophisticated and came very close to succeeding.

It is equally clear that the Capitol attack of Jan. 6 was not spontaneous or purely coincidental. Donald Trump and his confederates welcomed and incited the lethal attack as a central element of the attempted coup. The violence of Jan. 6 appears to have been a pretext for Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act and declare a national emergency as a means of remaining in power indefinitely.

Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather summarized the nature of the threat to American democracy, writing in his newsletter that there "is nothing past tense" about Jan. 6, "even though the date itself is about 18 months ago":


I also and angry....that the media and the fucking elites in power were more concern and about power and not country....

Utah Republican Says She Trusts Utah Women To Control Their 'Intake Of Semen'

"I do trust women enough to control when they allow a man to ejaculate inside of them and to control that intake of semen,” the Clearfield Republican told reporters.

By Ed Scarce — June 25, 2022

A Utah Republican came out with this one during a news conference yesterday when asked about men and unwanted pregnancies and the need to control men's ejaculations. Rep. Karianne Lisonbee responded that women too need to be responsible, and "control [their] intake of semen.” With Roe being struck down expect more Orwellian language such as this to come from GOP politicians.

More than fifty years ago, a famous politician once declared, as laws against homosexuality and abortion were being overturned, that 'There's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation.' And yet here we are, in 2022, right back in there.
