Dem Congresswoman Throws MAJOR Shade At Matt Gaetz During Wednesday Hearing

At a hearing of the House Rules Committee on Wednesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) got a painful reminder of the fact that he’s under investigation for sexually trafficking young girls.

The committee was meeting to discuss a criminal referral for Steve Bannon to be held in contempt of Congress after he refused to testify before the January 6 Select Committee.

Gaetz was present as a witness to defend Bannon and argue against holding him in contempt when Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA) hinted at the accusations that have been made against the Florida congressman.

Torres began by remarking:

“It is unfortunate that we have to look at the moral character of how people deny and try to try and twist the truth around what happened. People died.”

And then she brought the shade, making it clear what she thought about Gaetz and the charges against him by noting:

“This is not about someone being sexually assaulted or somebody paying to have sex with a young girl or somebody not protecting people that are under their jurisdiction. This is about our democracy.”

Ouch! That burn is going to leave a mark.

On Monday, Gaetz got more bad news when a federal judge agreed to delay the sentencing of his former “wingman,” Joel Greenberg for another four months because he’s providing so much information to prosecutors:

Federal prosecutors told the judge they needed more time due to the breadth of leads Greenberg has handed over and the “number of lines of investigations” investigators are pursuing.

“This is obviously not a normal situation,” U.S. attorney Roger Handberg told the judge. “Mr. Greenberg is a prolific criminal.”

“Mr. Greenberg was not alone,” Handberg added. “This is an unusual situation with a number of lines of investigation we are pursuing.”

Everywhere he turns, Gaetz is getting reminded of the fact that he could wind up spending the rest of his life in prison for his actions with a 17-year-old girl. It couldn’t possibly happen to a more deserving douchebag.

GOP Social Media The Biden Administration U.S. Senate WTF?!

Marco Rubio Gets Hit With Furious Backlash For Calling The Child Tax Credit ‘Socialism’

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is absolutely furious that the Biden administration wants to make the $300 per child tax credit permanent, and seems to be suggesting that children should have to work instead of letting their parents get a small break on their taxes.

Perhaps sensing that he’s already on the verge of losing to his likely Democratic challenger, Rep. Val Demmings, in next year’s Senate election, Rubio thought he’d brand the child tax credit “socialism.”

Is Rubio under the impression that the government pays parents $300 a month so they don’t send their kids to work? Or he is suggesting that anyone getting a meager child tax credit will stay home and benefit from that paltry sum?

Either way, Rubio’s arithmetic is all fouled up. It costs a hell of a lot more than $300 a month to feed, clothe, and care for a child. Any parent can tell you that. So are we supposed to let those who earn the least provide for their kids when they’re having trouble keeping a roof over their heads?

Apparently, Rubio thinks waging class warfare over $300 is going to get him lots of votes in Florida, which only proves just how utterly clueless he is and always will be.

The Florida senator was pelted with well-deserved online backlash for his snotty tweet:

Time for Florida to dump Marco Rubio and get a senator who gives a damn about them.


New Poll: Melania Trump Is One Of The Least Admired First Ladies In History

Much like her husband, former first lady Melania Trump is a divisive figure, claiming to care about the issue of online bullying yet never calling out the failed former president for his countless attacks on others via social media.

Just how unpopular is Melania? According to a new poll from Zogby Analytics, she’s near the bottom when it comes to favorite first ladies in modern history, The Daily Mail reports:

Jacqueline Kennedy tops a new poll of America’s favorite first ladies while current occupant Jill Biden comes in near the middle and Melania Trump was second from the bottom. 

Zogby Analytics polled a sampling of Americans for their thoughts on the past 12 women who have served as first lady. 

The results were based on how many of the 5,437 likely voters said each of the First Ladies was great. 

Be sure and note that Michelle Obama is second only to the late Jackie Kennedy in the poll, which is certain to enrage Donald Trump and his supporters, who have long tried to denigrate Mrs. Obama and her husband.

The fact that current First Lady Jill Biden is ranked so high though her husband has been in the White House for less than a year is also notable.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Melania is near the bottom of the poll. Keep in mind a few of the more controversial things she did and said while her husband was in office:

  • During a visit to see detained children at the US border, she wore a Zara jacket with “I don’t really care, do u?” emblazoned across the back. It left a bad taste in the mouths of many after her husband appeared seemingly apathetic to having separated children from their parents.
  • Melania hasn’t given many speeches, but when she did, they never went without controversy – whether she was accused of plagiarising Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech or labelled a hypocrite for celebrating diversity at the 2020 Republican National Convention (RNC) years after questioning Barack Obama’s nationality.

Though we can’t yet know if Melania’s ranking among former first ladies will improve, when you consider that her husband continues to say and do incredibly disgusting things, it seems unlikely that Mrs. #BeBest will ever be anything more than a footnote in American history that most of us would rather forget.

Crime Sex Scandals

Latest Development In Legal Case Against Matt Gaetz Is ‘Something HUGE’: Former Prosecutor

On Monday, a federal judge granted yet another delay in the sentencing of former Seminole County, Florida, tax collector Joel Greenberg as he continues to cooperate with prosecutors investigating possible sexual trafficking by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who allegedly transported underage girls across state lines for the purpose of having sex with them.

ABC News reports:

Federal prosecutors told the judge they needed more time due to the breadth of leads Greenberg has handed over and the “number of lines of investigations” investigators are pursuing.

“This is obviously not a normal situation,” U.S. attorney Roger Handberg told the judge. “Mr. Greenberg is a prolific criminal.”

“Mr. Greenberg was not alone,” Handberg added. “This is an unusual situation with a number of lines of investigation we are pursuing.”

The new sentencing delay agreed to by the judge is four months, meaning Greenberg will remain free until March of next year.

The new delay led former New York State prosecutor Tristan Snell to remark, “There’s something HUGE here.”

Snell posted his thoughts on Twitter, noting:

“Update on Matt Gaetz — his buddy Joel Greenberg has had so much dirt that prosecutors have opened up entire new wings of their case. The investigation into financial crimes now includes help from Secret Service agents. There’s something HUGE here.”

“Did Greenberg have information on Matt Gaetz trying to buy himself a pardon from Donald Trump? Is that why the Secret Service is now involved in the investigation?”

Snell added that he now suspects Greenberg has given information on crimes beyond what the original indictment of Gaetz’s “wingman.”

“Greenberg appears to have given the feds information about crimes totally beyond the scope of the original indictment of Greenberg — so the entire matter has snowballed.

“And if they haven’t indicted Gaetz yet, it may be because the new material also implicates Gaetz.”

Wouldn’t it be interesting if Greenberg is providing information about other top officials in the Sunshine State? Just how high does this sex trafficking investigation go? Only time will tell.

Trump Spits On The Memory Of Colin Powell With Disgusting Statement On His Passing

Even though he waited 24 hours before commenting on the death of former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who died of COVID complications on Monday, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump made sure to trash Powell’s legacy in a statement he issued through his spokesperson, Liz Harrington.

“Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq, and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media. Hope that happens to me someday. He was a classic RINO, if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace.”

Of course, Donald Trump has never made any mistakes. At least, not in his deranged mind. He mishandled the response to COVID, threatened our allies, praised murderous dictators such as Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un, and has been accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women, yet he has the nerve to slag a true American hero who served his country with honor and distinction.

Reaction to Trump’s hateful statement was immediate:
