Trump campaign coordinator and "family matters" Republican pleads guilty to child sex trafficking, faces life in prison

Trump campaign coordinator and "family matters" Republican pleads guilty to child sex trafficking...

On March 9, Shortey surrendered to police on charges of engaging in child prostitution, transporting a minor for prostitution and engaging in prostitution within 1,000 feet of a church

That last part doesn't sound right, but it's likely his people that put it in place.

BTW, the family-values guy plead guilty to GAY child sex trafficking, which only makes him more hypocritical.

The GOP are the thugs fox news warned us about

So if someone says they are a "family matters" person that means they are doing some really amoral illegal shit. I guess its good to have a phrase that has become a catch all for this type of stuff?

Why Trump Lies: Lies are the way authoritarians exercise power. While in office, Trump has lied 1,628 times.

Why Trump Lies: Lies are the way authoritarians exercise power. While in office, Trump has lied 1...

The worst part is that 1,628 actually feels too low. That number of lies in ten months should literally feel impossible to imagine but Trump has managed to make it sound not only plausible but easy.

The ONLY thing Trump is actually good at is lying.

It takes way longer to definitively prove a statement to be a lie than it does to create a lie. Trump can lie in 160 characters but it takes a full length article to explain how it was a lie. Once a lie has been proven to be a lie there are 100 new ones that need to be researched. It's impossible to keep up, 1628 are just the proven lies. The backlog must be enormous.

Must be hard draining the swamp when he keeps filling it with more bullshit.

He lies because the truth is irrelevant to his voters. They sent him to Washington DC to destroy it. If he has to lie to complete his agenda, they're perfectly fine with it. It's not like they don't know he's lying. They just don't care.

Trump About to Be Hit With a Legal Tidal Wave

Trump About to Be Hit With a Legal Tidal Wave

I'm pretty sure he's already being hit with a legal title wave from personal lawsuits against him, to the Russian investigation, and his policy keeps getting hit with lawsuits as well. If anything more will just make it a tsunami.

Is that the one who called a press conference for his suicide, after being caught out ?

Sure was.

I'm hoping he uses Budd Dwyer for his inspiration.

Conservative Activist Perkins Reportedly Covered Up Sexual Assault Against Teenager

At this point, it'd be more noteworthy for the news to run a list of Republicans that aren't guilty of rapey behavior.

The head of the Family Research Council allegedly kept quiet about claims that an Ohio Republican lawmaker assaulted a teenage boy in a hotel two years ago.

Well, I GUESS that counts as research...

So it seems we can add Mr Perkins to "rather a child molester than a Democrat" club list.

Another politician posing as a christian for the tax free super pac. As corrupt and greedy as they come. My taxes go up if Republicans pass their tax plan and this greedy bastard gets to groom pedo politicians in the church with no tax liability.

Alabama Governor Supports Roy Moore Because He’s Republican

Alabama Governor Supports Roy Moore Because He’s Republican

Even without considering Moore's molestation and predatory accusations, this dude is 100% unethical fuck.

That was pathetic but I think it's at the bottom of evangelical support for Republicans at any cost. They want conservative judges to undermine Roe vs. Wade and other laws they find incompatible with Christianity. They want Christian Sharia in this country.

The GOP is so horrified by the thought of losing a seat to a Democrat that they actually would rather have a pedophile sitting in it, just so long as there is an (R) next to their name? Really?

"So what if they are a pedophile? It could be worse...they could be a Democrat! <audible gasps>"

This is psychopathy - no concern about right or wrong, no sense of guilt, no empathy, pure manipulation to get an (R) into a seat of power so they can benefit, with no regard for any other consequences.

Unethical for Jesus

The White House wants "real Americans" to let them know what they think of Trump...

Question 22:

Do you feel that you cannot publicly admit that you support Trump?

If you answer yes, then you're saying you feel that you can't publicly support Trump. If you answer no, then you're saying that you feel you can publicly support Trump.

This whole survey is filled with loaded questions.

This is the most manipulative survey I have ever seen.

I filled it out. Any loaded question got a No Opinion. Then I used the text box to tell them my thoughts. No way to draw pictures though, so the president will never see them.

“Real Americans,” I️ mean “Russians,” I️ mean “Americans,” I️ mean- wait. Yeah, that’s right.

The Texas church shooter is a right wing terrorist

The Texas church shooter is a right wing terrorist

I don't like to say anything negative about the Resistance, but I feel that I need to come out against this 'article' because I feel that the spirit of it is in the wrong place.

First of all, it's a screenshot of someone's app and nothing else. No sources given, no journalistic vetting. And even if this is genuine, the context of it is not given- The poster could be drunk or angry and talking out of his ass. We should be more interested in all of the things that the shooter said, so that we have a more complete profile of what he was. Not posting random vile things one by one on Reddit without context, which brings me to another point...

What's the point of this image? The two things that pop out for me is that the shooter thinks that when women show skin they are "sluts", and that he doesn't value the opinion of liberals at all. How does that compute to 'right wing'? Wasn't it reported that the shooter was a follower of atheist groups on his social media? Even though it's not conclusive that he's an atheist, neither is it proven that he's a right wing terrorist. And even if he was an atheist, so what? Surely we liberals are brave enough to persecute the criminals in our midst, unlike certain individuals who can't condemn Nazism.

Let's not spout half-baked theories here and become a leftist version of T_D. We should resist by being armed with the truth, or else justice will never be on our side.

WAS a Right wing Terrorist...

If you do/say terrible things when you're drunk, sober you should know better than to get drunk.

Being drunk is never an excuse.

Still an abject failure though.

I wish I could believe he'd grown a conscience, but really this just shows that he's happy to defend a predatory pedophile until it harms him personally.

All those coffee makers broken in vain...

Turns out it’s all about money after all.

Oh man. The mods on alt-right subs have some serious deleting to do.

“Jeff Sessions is a throwback to a shameful era which I know both black & white Americans thought was in our past—It’s inconceivable to me that a person of this attitude is qualified to be a US attorney let alone US or federal judge” - Ted Kennedy 30 yrs ago

“Jeff Sessions is a throwback to a shameful era which I know both black & white Americans thought...

And here's why Ted hated him.

The very act that propelled him into national politics was a vicious and illegal attempt to prevent elderly black people from voting. There was a wave of voting reform in the wake of Dr. King's assassination, and he was on the front lines in the fight against it.

He is a literal villain of history, and his continued presence in politics was an affront to American decency until 2016 when Donald Trump surgically removed American decency.

Remember when Elizabeth Warren got silenced during his confirmation hearing for reading a letter from Coretta Scott King?

Trump really did scrape the bottom of the barrel when he appointed this administration.

Can't wait for Sessions to get fired by Trump
