And now a word from a complete has been.....but first......a little back ground from Wikipedia.....

In 1976, Chapman was convicted of first degree murder, and sentenced to five years in a Texas prison. He had been waiting in a getaway car while his friend shot and killed Jerry Oliver, 69, in a struggle during a deal to buy cannabis. Chapman served 18 months at the Texas State Penitentiary in Huntsville, Texas.

Dog the Bounty Hunter compares Biden to Hitler and says president could commit suicide during wild speech

Dog the Bounty Hunter is back, and he made his feelings about Joe Biden clear with a rant during a recent speech, in which he claimed that the president might commit suicide and compared him to Adolf Hitler.

Right Wing Watch first reported on the speech, which occurred this past weekend during the Opening the Heavens Conference in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The conference, which claims to celebrate "the promises of God," featured Dog the Bounty Hunter, real name Duane Chapman, as one of its guest speakers.

Chapman started his speech off by saying that he believed that the GOP would see a massive victory in the midterms, even though a recent poll from FiveThirtyEight said that voters favored Democrats over Republicans in Congress, 45 percent to 43 percent.


And my question is, is he allowed to vote.....in Texas......and why does he have a show....

Russia now frontrunner to build nuclear reactors Trump ally Michael Flynn was negotiating

By Lynda Edwards, Staff Reporter
Published September 20, 2022


Since the FBI raided former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago in August, Americans were reminded that Trump’s former national security adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, and close friend and inaugural committee chairman Tom Barrack negotiated with Saudi Arabia to sell the kingdom the technology to build at least 14 nuclear reactors.

Whistleblowers were alarmed that the kingdom would use the technology for nuclear weapons and alerted Congress to the secret negotiations, resulting in a Congressional investigation. The White House did not cooperate with the investigation or share any requested documents.

But the House Oversight Committee obtained more than 60,000 pages of texts, emails, corporate memos and reports that offered a vivid look at how dangerous the Middle East could have become if the secret negotiations resulted in a sale.


This is just fucking amazing.....and these assholes need to be brought in for questioning yesterday......

Far-right 'constitutional sheriffs' now turn to hunting 'fraud' in midterm elections

By Areeba Shah, Salon
Published September 20, 2022


A controversial group of right-wing sheriffs that has spread false claims about voter fraud in the 2020 election and propagated Donald Trump's Big Lie is now vowing to monitor this year's midterm elections through surveillance of drop boxes and a hotline for reporting purported election fraud.

The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) supports the far-right fringe belief that under the U.S. Constitution county sheriffs have extensive power that supersedes all other federal, state or local authorities. It has recently partnered up with a Texas nonprofit called True the Vote, which has peddled conspiracy theories about voter fraud. Now the two groups are promising to keep on investigating allegations about a "stolen election" in 2020 and also to police future voting. For election authorities and voting rights advocates, the combination is ominous.

This partnership provides an insight into the role the "constitutional sheriff" movement is playing in sowing doubts about the election process and monitoring how voters cast their ballots. Such efforts amount to voter intimidation and voter suppression in many cases, advocates say.


Hey John Roberts what does your fucking court think of this BS........come on you can tell us.....since this is basically what you and your fucking gang created when they gutted the Voting Rights Act.......we now have intimidation from assholes that want to know how people are voting.....with fucking badges on ......and some fucking white hat with a gun....

Trumpers Urge Folks To Flood VA Suicide Hotline With Demands For J6 Defendants

How low can they go?

By Conover Kennard — September 20, 2022

One thing that stands out with the MAGA crowd is that they feel they deserve special treatment. Different treatment than the rest of us would get.

It's been well over a year since a mob of Trump supporters swarmed the US Capitol, forcing Congress to go into lockdown and damaging the halls of government, not to mention democracy. So far, at least 910 people have been arrested and charged with crimes.

According to the V.A.:


Here these people can call this number.....

Judge Asks Trump For Info On Declassified Docs, Lawyers Resist

Trump's attorneys pushed back against Judge Raymond Dearie's apparent proposal that they submit “specific information regarding declassification” to him in the course of his review.

By Susie Madrak — September 20, 2022

Imagine being Trump's attorneys and having to clean up after all his conflicting claims -- like the one about declassified documents. Via NBC News:

Donald Trump’s attorneys said in a filing Monday night that they don’t want to disclose to a court-appointed special master which Mar-a-Lago documents they assert the former president may or may not have declassified.

In a four-page letter to the special master, Trump's attorneys pushed back against Senior U.S. District Judge Raymond Dearie's apparent proposal that they submit “specific information regarding declassification” to him in the course of his review.


SO either words put up or shut up....and because the traitor has no clothes he has stolen classified documents........lock him up.....

Trump-loving tech mogul recruiting veterans and ex-cops as poll watchers: 'We do not condone violenc

By Travis Gettys
Published September 16, 2022

Election-denying former tech CEO Patrick Byrne is recruiting military veterans and former law enforcement officers to become poll watchers.

The Overstock.com founder announced "One More Mission" on his page hosted by the subscription-based Locals website, in a similar effort to those mounted by Michael Flynn and other Donald Trump allies to send right-wing allies to polling stations looking for evidence of fraud, although critics claim their presence is intimidating to voters.

“We cannot achieve our goals if there are threats or acts of violence," Byrne posted on his announcement. "This movement is a peaceful protest and we do not condone any acts of violence, etc. We already know there will be activists working at the behest of global authoritarians and think tanks to sabotage our movement. Because of this, we must have a zero-tolerance approach to aggressive behaviour and violence.”


Oh I don't know jerk-off but having some one there asking how I voted is a fucking threat......and this guy sounds like he read the books on how to be the ultimate fascist on propaganda literature......they will get paid and have a beer.....

What Will It Take to Stymie Right-Wing Supervillain Leonard Leo?

With the help of $1.6 billion, the man who helped engineer the conservative takeover of the courts is about to wreak serious havoc.

By Elie Mystal

I imagine how Lois Lane would feel if she found out that a rich industrialist gave Lex Luthor $1.6 billion to start mining Kryptonite. Her comic-book howl is the only thing I can think of that might approximate my own reaction to the news that electronics magnate Barre Seid gave conservative kingpin Leonard Leo $1.6 billion, tax-free, for his new “nonprofit” venture, the Marble Freedom Trust. The most effective villain in America just got a literal fortune to play with.

Leo is the longtime leader of the Federalist Society; as such, he is as responsible as any single individual can be for the conservative takeover of the judicial branch. He has nurtured the careers of countless conservative judges and helped develop the theories of law that give more rights to gun owners than to the half of the population that has a uterus. He’s been instrumental in lobbying Republican politicians to support his judicial candidates. Most important, Leo has been able to get buy-ins from various Republican constituency groups, like the gun lobby and the religious right, to functionally cede the judicial nominations process to him and his organization. Justice Samuel Alito may have killed Roe v. Wade, but it was Leo who fashioned the murder weapon and put it in his hand.


This is a very good read.....and when I saw Marble Freedom Trust.....I image courts...because of marble....

Biden: Tentative railway labor deal reached, averting strike

Source: Associated Press

48 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden said Thursday that a tentative railway labor agreement has been reached, averting a strike that could have been devastating to the economy before the pivotal midterm elections.

Railroads and union representatives had been in negotiations for 20 hours at the Labor Department on Wednesday to hammer out a deal, as there was a risk of a strike starting on Friday that could have shut down rail lines across the country.

Biden made a key phone call to Labor Secretary Marty Walsh at 9 p.m. as the talks were ongoing after Italian dinner had been brought in, according to a White House official who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity to discuss closed negotiations. The president told the negotiators to consider the harm to families, farmers and businesses if a shutdown occurred.
