Hey Chumph! Don’t Even Think About Firing Mueller

Senator Mark Warner is one of my state’s Senators. Know him through business and have met him several times through mutual acquaintances.

He is a businessman…And he doesn’t make idle threats.

Sen. Cory Booker Under Protective Detail After Assasination Threat

White wingers…Again.

Corey Booker (l) and Va Senator Doug Jones

Sen. Cory Booker Gets Extra Security Following Death Threat

Police have beefed up security at the senator’s residence in Newark, New Jersey.

Police in Newark, New Jersey, were providing increased protection to Sen. Cory Booker(D-N.J.) after the lawmaker and his family received a death threat.

Newark police were notified by U.S. Capitol Police “regarding a threat on the life” of Booker and his family members, the city’s mayor, Ras Baraka, said on Saturday in a statement. “As a result, members of the Police Division’s Executive Protection Unit have been assigned to provide security at the Senator’s residence in Newark,” the mayor said, according to ABC News.

Baraka did not elaborate on the threat.

Booker was recently in Alabama for the special Senate election that pitted Republican Roy Moore against Democrat Doug Jones. Booker, who’d canvassed for Jones, celebrated the Democrat’s surprising victory last week.

Booker, one of President Donald Trump’s most vociferous critics in Congress, has in recent days blasted the Federal Communications Commission decision to repeal net neutrality, slammed what he called Trump’s “all-out assault on the LGBTQ community,” and called for the president to resign over accusations of sexual harassment.

Another Republican Accused of Doing the Trump

Damn! When it rains it pours Republican sexual predators…The Party of “Gram ’em by their private parts” seems to be real busy at that slogan.

Sending picture of his private parts online…Isn’t that an Anthony Weiner?

Minnesota Republican accused of trapping lobbyist in office and demanding sex

A Minnesota Republican lawmaker is under fire for sending abusive texts to a female colleague and reportedly sexually assaulting a female lobbyist in his office while insisting she help him with his “raging b*ner.”

According to the City Paper, state Rep. Tony Cornish under attack after he was accused of sending unwanted sexual comments to Rep. Erin Maye Quade (DFL), who provided text messages to a local paper.

Late Thursday night, Cornish had his chairmanship of the House Public Safety Committee suspended by House Speaker Kurt Daudt (R) while the allegations are being investigated.

More damning, however, are charges from a female lobbyist, who wished to remain anonymous, who claimed Cornish stalked her and solicited her for sex for over a year, once physically grabbing her in his office while trying to kiss her.

According to the woman, Cornish once blocked her from leaving his office, repeatedly telling her, “I have a raging boner. You can’t leave.”

Confronted with the accusations, Cornish denied the assaults,  but did admit to inappropriately texting women, explaining: “I’m an adult. I’m not a saint.”

The accusations against Cornish come at a time when DFL Sen. Dan Schoen is facing demands from his own party’s leaders to resign after he was accused of sexual harassment by multiple women.

The accusations against Schoen include physically grabbing women as well as sending pictures of his genitalia via Snapchat.

Sen Tim Scott to Kelly – “No Compromise to Make on Civil War”

Sen. Tim Scott Responds To John Kelly: ‘No Compromise To Make’ On Civil War

The White House chief of staff said the war was caused by the inability to compromise.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) seemingly chided White House chief of staff John Kelly on Tuesday after the former Marine Corps general claimed that the Civil War was caused by the inability to compromise.

“We need to stop relitigating and referencing the Civil War as if there was some moral conundrum,” Scott, the sole black Senate Republican, said in a statement. “There was no compromise to make – only a choice between continuing slavery and ending it. We need to move forward together, instead of letting the divisions of the past continue to force us apart.” 

Kelly on Monday said a “lack of ability to compromise led to the Civil War” and called the removal of Confederate monuments a “dangerous” scrubbing of history. The senior Donald Trump aide made the comments during an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, who asked his thoughts about the removal of two plaques honoring President George Washington and Gen. Robert E. Lee at a church in Alexandria, Virginia.

“I would tell you that Robert E. Lee was an honorable man,” Kelly said during the interview.

“He was a man that gave up his country to fight for his state, which, 150 years ago, was more important than country,” he added. “It was always loyalty to state first back in those days. Now it’s different today. But the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War. And men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had to make their stand.”

number of U.S. historians have criticized Kelly’s comments about the Civil War, calling them “strange,” “sad,” and “wrong.” Stephanie McCurry, a history professor at Columbia University, told The Washington Post that Kelly’s comments echoed talking points of a “pro-Confederate view of the Civil War.”

Republican Senator Puts Hold on Water Bill Designed to Combat Lead in Drinking Water

It only impacts black folks…Right.

The bill is designed around helping cities and towns with lead contamination…Not just Flint.

The portrait of yet another racist Republican asshat

Senator puts hold on lead bill, says Flint doesn’t need fed aid

A U.S. senator from Utah who put a hold on a bill to provide federal aid to Flint, Michigan, amid its water crisis said Friday he did so because the federal money is unneeded.

“The state of Michigan has an enormous budget surplus this year and a large rainy-day fund, totaling hundreds of millions of dollars,” Sen. Mike Lee, a Republican, said in a statement Friday.

“Gov. [Rick] Snyder has requested $200 million of that from the state legislature for Flint this year. Relief and repair efforts are already in the works,” Lee said. “The people and policymakers of Michigan right now have all the government resources they need to fix the problem.”

The residents of the city of nearly 100,000 were exposed to lead poisoning when the city switched water sources in a bid to save money. Lead poisoning can destroy brain tissue and cause irreversible developmental problems in children.

The $220 million bill would provide funds to help Flint and cities like it fix and replace lead pipes, as well as prevent and address lead poisoning.

Lee’s “hold” on the bill only stops the speedy consideration of a bill, and can be bypassed procedurally.

Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., a key sponsor of the bill, said she was surprised and disappointed that Lee would hold up a bipartisan measure that would “help communities across the country, including in his home state of Utah.” She said if Lee is opposed, he should vote against the bill rather than try and hold it up

Lee accused lawmakers of “political grandstanding” and of using the water crisis in Flint to send federal dollars to their home states.

As introduced, the legislation would provide $100 million in “drinking water state revolving funds” available to any state with a drinking water emergency; provide $70 million to back water infrastructure loans; and provide $50 million to prevent and address lead poisoning.
