    Three years ago, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" ran a profile of Greg Collett, a three-time losing candidate for the Idaho State Senate who has the chutzpah to campaign against the Affordable Care Act and government being involved with insurance while simultaneously having his ten children on Medicaid. He responded to criticism for this from both the right, and the left, by going online to cite Mormon doctrine to defend his stunning hypocrisy. Not to be limited to kooky on just one issue, Collett also claims that "public education is one of the planks of the Communist Manifesto". After quickly making himself the butt of many jokes, he faded from view in Idaho politics.



    In both 2016, as well as in 2017, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published its profiles of Missouri State Senator Andrew Koenig (who should still not be confused with the actor who played Boner on the TV show "Growing Pains" and then would eventually take his own life in 2010.) In his nine years in the Missouri state legislature, Koenig has been involved in some of the dumbest efforts that body has seen in that time frame, first as one of the co-sponsors of HB 283, Missouri's "Birther Bill" back in 2011, hanging out with Orly Taitz and later Koenig also supported a bill to prohibit compliance with the United Nations Agenda 21 environmental treaty a few years ago, apparently because he's another one of those conservatives who believe it's a secret plot for global domination. In May 2014, that Koenig sponsored HB 1587, a bill to prevent teachers from misinforming students about "scientific controversies," specifically citing "the theory of biological and hypotheses of chemical evolution" as controversial. That got him mentioned on the Colbert Report... but believe it or not, that's not the only time Koenig was raked over the coals by Colbert, as he also did in 2012 for trying to place a ban on school teachers from talking about being gay, at all.

    Hell, Koenig's response to the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri after the shooting death of Michael Brown was to vote for a bill to make it easier for police officers to declare their use of deadly force was justified. But don't worry, he doesn't want the police state to get to restrictive, as he also put out a nullification bill that would prohibit Missouri law enforcement from enforcing federal firearms laws. Speaking of nullification, Koenig is a huge fan, because he also co-sponsored and voted for legislation to try and have Missouri prohibit implementation of the Affordable Care Act, apparently showing he doesn't know how the Civil War started, but thinking fighting against socialized healthcare is worth that kind of conflict happening again. To this day, Andrew Koenig still continues to ignore basic facts to push forth partisan bills, like how after the Planned Parenthood videos were debunked was strategically edited, and widely misleading frauds by a pro-life group, he still insisted on trying to create legislation to assure that any fetal remains are destroyed in an incinerator, rather than be used for stem cell research, or any other scientific endeavor, or perhaps even allowing investigators to just perform surprise inspections of clinics whenever they want without a warrant, because the 4th Amendment shouldn't apply to them. And you think he would know Planned Parenthood was found innocent of any wrongdoing, considering he led the witch hunt by chairing the Missouri House Committee that was looking for any kind of evidence they could to justify that. He’s also co-sponsored legislation to create stricter Voter Identification laws and legislation to attempt to drug test people on welfare. Over the past year as a legislator, Koenig continued pushing for even more strict Voter ID legislation, and made another attempt at getting a ban on fetal tissue donation passed.

    Andrew Koenig, by all of our estimations, remains a sea-worthy douche canoe. Just about one year ago, he actually took to the floor to speak in defense of a transphobic bathroom bill in the state legislature aimed at public school children, and argued:

    It was at that point that Dr. Sharon Dunski Vermont testified and handed Koenig his ass for not knowing the difference between a transgendered teen and a child playing pretend.

    Over this past summer, Koenig sponsored SB 5, an anti-abortion TRAP law aimed at closing all of the abortion clinics in Missouri. Unfortunately for the people of Missouri, Koenig’s term will last to at least 2020, and it will be interesting to see how many laws he submits to Gov. Eric Greitens in that time get overturned by the courts. It’s going to at least be a number greater than zero, of this, we’re positive.

    3rd District Congressman Clay Higgins has just over $50,000 in the bank for a re-election bid and still needs to repay some $7,000 in debt from his 2016 campaign. Political analyst Bernie Pinosnat says even though Higgins is well liked in southwest Louisiana, he'll a lot more money to get re-elected.

    "You never know who's going to run to you. You could have someone jump up and run and if they have enough money to write a check out of their back pocket, you really got to work hard."
    Higgins has the fewest campaign dollars out of Louisiana's Congressional delegation and the mid-term elections are in November. For comparison's sake, Republican Mike Johnson is in his first term and has bankrolled $451,000.
    May this be his only term in office.

    Russia is threatening to block YouTube and Instagram over video of oligarch

    Russia has threatened to block access to YouTube and Instagram if the sites do not remove video and photographs that show a senior government official sailing on a yacht with a billionaire oligarch, who has links with the former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

    Russia’s state-controlled media watchdog, Roskomnadzor, on Saturday ordered that 14 Instagram posts and seven YouTube videos be deleted that show metals magnate Oleg Deripaska on a yacht with a Russian deputy prime minister, Sergey Prikhodko, and a woman who has described herself as an escort.

    The watchdog listed the posts on its register of banned sites after Deripaska won an injunction from a court in his hometown Ust-Labinsk, which ruled they violated his privacy. Roskomnadzor said it had informed the sites that they must delete the images within three days.

    The images are at the heart of the public battle between Deripaska and the anti-corruption activist Alexey Navalny, who first drew attention to the posts in an investigative video piece he released last week. In the report, he accused the oligarch of bribing Prikhodko by hosting him on the yacht in August 2016.

    It's glaringly ironic that a bloated buffoon like Trump who regularly dines on KFC and Mickey D's wants to kill the Food Stamp program and send the poor their food in boxes instead. Just imagine the four alarm nightmare in terms of logistics, red tape and bureaucracy, never mind the potential for theft and graft that would be on a monumental scale. Of all the fantastically moronic ideas that's come out of this White House of horrors since Donnie Doughboy took office last January, this lunacy is right at the very top.

    And the harm it woudl do to the economy when poorer people can't spenmd their money as they need to, including using it at smaller, local stores. Bascially, it woudl not only be harmful as you describe, WPP, it could lead to the closing of many stores that serve the poorer populations.

    Smaller markets, corner stores, grocery stores and bodegas. Small resturants, local fast food and diners. A number of business woudl see a major drop in customers if people didn't have the money.

    Who are these liars kidding with these OBVIOUS lies? Who in their right minds is going to pay your bosses hooker $130k with YOUR money? WTF? I mean his supporters buy anything but that's pushing it. My boss just gave me an 11k bonus and I still would expense a Snickers bar if I bought him one.

    That isn't even getting to the hypocrisy of basically admitting he cheated on Melania after she was just had the baby. Then tried to cover it up. All the while bashing the media who once again uncovered it all.

    The snowball effect from all that would inevitably result in such stores going out of business, and those impoverished communities they served devolving into food deserts, heightening the already entrenched poverty. As bad as that would be in big cities with struggling urban populations, it would catastrophic in small towns, most of which tend to skew Republican in terms of voters. Those same ignorant voters who gleefully elected Trump and the bad actors from the GOP because A) they hated Hillary, B) fell for Trump's snake oil bullshit, or C) wanted to stick it to those big city liberals would end up suffering just as much as everyone else, if not worse.

    maybe theyll starve to death

    maybe their kids will grow up malnourished

    maybe whole rural areas will just decay because people move out and we will have whole sections of the country just rotting

    It was 10, maybe 20 years or more that I rememeber being made aware of soem communities that had no easy access to food becasue it was impossible to get larger supermarkets inot the areas. So the peopel relied on the smaller stores fro basic food, milk, bread, and so on.

    Things in NJ have improived, but there are still areas liek this. Loss of smaller stores ... it's like a poverty circle.

    GOP women frustrated by Trump's approach to abuse charges

    The Trump White House's handling of abuse charges against men in its midst is frustrating prominent Republican women as the party's yearslong struggle to attract female voters stretches into the 2018 midterm elections.

    "It's the mixed signals. They've just got to be stronger, more consistent, clearer in the message" to women, Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., said Tuesday. "It's difficult being a Republican woman to have to fight through that all the time."
    "I'm extremely disappointed in this situation. Abuse is never OK," Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, said on CNN Tuesday.
    "The party and party leadership has had so many opportunities to try to right its wrongs, and Donald Trump's wrongs, with women, to take a stand ... and they haven't," said Meghan Milloy, co-founder of Republican Women for Progress, previously called Republicans for Hillary. The GOP, she said, "is going to start losing women."

    Jennifer Horn, former New Hampshire Republican chairwoman, added, "Every single time the president tries to excuse a man who has assaulted women, it makes it harder and harder for our candidates to run credible campaigns."
    NOW Republican women are frustrated with Trump? Jesus H. Christ! What took them so goddamn long? Didn't they hear all the horror stories about Herr Gropenfuhrer during the campaign, including the infamous "Grab 'em by the p***y" tape? You mean to tell me they're just getting wise to the realization that a thrice married caveman who cheated on his first two wives and abused over a dozen women wasn't going to sell out his fellow abusers or come to the defense of the women those scumbags mistreated? What in the hell did Republican women expect from Trump other than what they're getting on this matter, which is a big fat chunk of nothingburger?

    I will believe it when I see it manifest in their voting patterns. You can be "frustrated" all you want but if you continue voting and supporting him and his enablers it means shit.
