Thread: Ongoing US GOP Debacle Thread: Embracing Trumpism/White Supremacy

    Federal Agencies Have Been Sending Employees Articles From White Nationalist And Conspiracy Websites For Months

    An arm of the Justice Department regularly sent summaries and links to articles from an online white nationalist publication over the last year, a BuzzFeed News investigation has found. In addition, similar newsletters sent to the Labor Department, ICE, HUD, and the Department of Homeland Security included links and content from hyperpartisan and conspiracy-oriented publishers.
    While these newsletters typically shared articles from local and mainstream national news outlets — including BuzzFeed News — they also regularly delivered content from partisan publications touting anti-immigration rhetoric and conspiracy theories. Among these publications: the Western Journal, a hyperpartisan publisher whose founder once questioned if then-presidential candidate Barack Obama was Muslim, and the Epoch Times, a newspaper associated with the Chinese Falun Gong movement and whose related media properties have backed QAnon, a conspiracy theory claiming a group of high-ranking officials known as the “Deep State” is subverting President Donald Trump’s goals.

LOL.

    the problem for the gun-o-phobes is that if you didn't have a gun, you couldn't serve in the militia

    that is, private gun ownership pre-supposed serving in the militia
    yeah guys, didn't you know that the only thing that makes up a fighting force is guys with guns !

    WV GOP Senator caught in prostitution sting
    http://wvmetronews.com/2019/08/28/ar...itution-sting/

    More broadly, the situation started with a prostitution sting in Glen Dale.
    Cortnie Clark
    Clark was suspected of using her cell phone and advertisements on websites to let potential prostitution customers get in contact with her. Her rates, police said, were $120 for half an hour or $190 for an hour.
    Clark was charged June 14 with prostitution and operating a house of prostitution.
    “Mr. Clark further admitted to becoming a prostitute so she could purchase narcotics, specifically heroin,” according to the criminal complaint in Maroney’s arrest.
    Six people were arrested initially. Maroney was not one of the first, but the number that was eventually traced to him came up in Clark’s phone.
    As the Gazette-Mail and then Wheeling’s Intelligencer newspaper described, police had to get a search warrant for Maroney’s vehicle, which had been left at the Pittsburgh International Airport as Maroney traveled, to retrieve the phone.
    The criminal complaint that was filed this week described the first documented text message at 12:11 p.m. May 14 when Clark sent “u call last night.”
    At 2:18 p.m. that day, she received the response, “yes i can call tonight too at about the same time i work until 2am.”
    The criminal complaint describes more messages setting up a meeting at 2 a.m., plus a conversation about a monetary amount and length of time for sexual services.
    As the conversation continued, the criminal complaint states, Clark asked for a photograph.
    The response was: “i cant send pic… but i am normal and nice.”
    Clark replied, “i cant meet w out pic sorry. Have a good night babe.”
    The response to her was, “ok sorry i could be a regular.”
    Clark then responded that she needed a picture, saying she recently had been robbed by someone using multiple numbers.
    The text conversation continued that way until a text came from Maroney’s phone: “i want to meet… if i send pic is it a go?”
    After that, the criminal complaint describes conversations setting up multiple encounters in a car and in a house.

    “I think you’re going to see this influence in the Democratic Party grow and grow and grow over time, but ultimately become the dominant influence within the Democratic Party, where the Democratic Party will become very strongly anti-Jewish and anti-Israel,” Brooks added. (These comments start at about the two-minute mark of this recording of the show).

    Wow. I have been reporting on Islamophobia in U.S. politics for more than a decade, and I honestly cannot remember coming across a more brazenly Islamophobic statement from an elected member of Congress. “Growing influence of the Islamic religion” among Democrats? “More and more Muslims” winning elections? The “dominant influence”? “Anti-Jewish”? In an age of rising white nationalism, in which Muslims have been gunned down in mosques by domestic terrorists who believe such conspiracy theories about Islam, these remarks aren’t just offensive, they’re downright dangerous.

    So you might think the media — and the Democrats — would be all over Brooks and the Republicans, right?

    Right?

    Not quite. I asked Parker Molloy, of Media Matters for America, to check the numbers. In terms of cable news, Molloy found that in the seven days after Omar’s “Benjamins” tweet, “Fox News mentioned her during 21 shows, CNN in 53, and five on MSNBC.” The freshman Democrat’s name, according to a Lexis search, was also mentioned in a whopping 479 newspaper articles.

    And in the seven days since Brooks’s remarks? Zero mentions of him in the national press. Zero coverage of him on network and cable news. Not one story; not one report.
