The Sewer That Is The GOP: With All The White Supremacists, Conspiracy Nutters, And Other Malicious Whacko Subgroups, How Does It Get Fixed?

An illegal alien from IRAN that was flagged on the TERROR WATCH LIST was arrested during a human smuggling bust near the southern border last week. 


Even Fox News is reporting the individual was not actually on the terror watch list. I'm sure that won't stop Gym Jordan from fear mongering tho.

McConnell pulls rival Rick Scott off powerful Commerce Committee


Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has pulled Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), who tried to oust him as the Senate’s top Republican in a bruising leadership race, off the powerful Commerce Committee.  


McConnell also removed Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), who supported Scott’s bid to replace McConnell as leader, from the Commerce panel, which has broad jurisdiction over a swath of federal agencies.  


The GOP leader insisted last year that he didn’t take the attempt to end his leadership reign personally, but the latest move sends a clear message to conservatives that challenging McConnell’s leadership carries a cost.

Sign put up for Ron DeSantis' press conference about rural broadband:




Someone pointed out the typo and staff pulled the sign down just before the event began.

I wish Gilda Radner were still with us so she could do a “Expanding WooWall BwahdBwand with Wan DeSantis” Baba Wawa skit.

George Santos Reportedly Hires Lawyer Convicted of Brazilian Gang Killing


The Brazilian lawyer that out Republican Rep. George Santos of New York has selected to defend him against fraud charges in the country was reportedly convicted and incarcerated for his involvement in a gang execution.


Jonymar Vasconcelos, 47, received an 18-year sentence in 2007 over the shooting death of a mechanic Aristeu Vieira de Mattos in 2004, according to São Paulo newspaper Folha.

The outlet reports that Vasconcelos is believed to have paid for the killing. He reportedly went to the mechanic’s house with a few other men on the morning of December 3, 2004. Vasconcelos was in the Navy at the time, Folha reports.


After serving five years in prison, he was moved to house arrest in 2009. He started studying law around that time as well.


Last June, Vasconcelos was released.


Santos was accused in 2008 of paying for some items with a stolen checkbook. Brazil recently revived the case as Santos came to national attention over lying about his biography and the growing scrutiny of his financial dealings by state and federal authorities.


The Brazilian news outlet asked Santos if he was aware of Vasconcelos's past and questioned the disgraced lawmaker how he found Vasconcelos since the lawyer is not affiliated with a law firm.


After Folha sent questions to Santos’s office in Portuguese, the paper got a response that said Santos does not understand the language. Santos has given interviews in Portuguese and is the son of Brazilians. The congressman did not respond to the questions when sent in English.
