Stephen King Gives ‘Jimmy’ Jordan A Brutal Fact-Check On The Issue Of Crime

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) got supremely swatted down by best-selling author Stephen King on the issue of crime, and the result was perfectly on-point, especially since Jordan’s party is on the verge of shutting down the federal government to pretend they’re doing something other than wasting time and taxpayer money on bogus investigations.

On Tuesday, Jordan took the House Judiciary Committee on the road, to the city of Chicago so Republicans could grandstand and claim Democrats are to blame for all of the crime taking place in the United States.

After the hearing, Jordan posted this on Twitter:

That led King to respond with a pointed reminder of what’s actually behind the rise in violent crime.

For example, consider the issue of mass shootings in the U.S., which are increasing rapidly in 2023, according to a recent report from the BBC.

There have been more than 470 mass shootings across the US so far this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive, which defines a mass shooting as an incident in which four or more people are injured or killed. Their figures include shootings that happen in homes and in public places.

For each of the last three years there have been more than 600 mass shootings – almost two a day on average.

How can anyone blame those numbers on any political party or ideology? It’s the proliferation of guns that makes it easier for gun crimes to take place. Fewer guns would mean fewer deaths, much the same way fewer cars on highways reduces the number of fatal auto accidents. That’s just common sense.

Even worse is the fact that Jordan has no solutions to the problem he’s trying to blame on others. He’s just trying to make political hay while more people die of gunshot wounds each and every day in this country

The terror found in Stephen King’s novels is no match for the craven and heartless posturing from mindless, self-serving political hacks like Jim Jordan and his ilk.

MT Greene May Have Committed A Federal Crime With Comments She Made During An Interview

During an appearance on Fox “News,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) made some comments that may come back haunt her in a major way if the Justice Department decides to investigate her for endangering U.S. national security.

Greene was a guest on Laura Ingraham’s show, HuffPost reports, when she began talking about classified document she viewed regarding President Joe Biden.

Greene said she read a document inside a SCIF ― a sensitive compartmented information facility ― related to bribery allegations Republicans have made against President Joe Biden but have yet to provide evidence for.

So far so good for Greene, but she should have stopped talking right then. She didn’t. Instead, she began describing the document.

Since the document was shown in a SCIF, that means the FBI considered it to be sensitive and not for public consumption.

Greene then made matters even worse with what she said and did next.

“This is a document that all of America should be able to see, but the FBI is stonewalling us and they would only let us see it in a SCIF,” she said. “Well what I did after reading the document is I made notes when I walked out and I went up to the table.”

Greene also held those notes up to the camera, where anyone could have gotten a screenshot of them.

“I wrote down everything that I had just read so that I could come out and tell the American people what I read,” she said.

If indeed the guilty almost always confess, it certainly seems that Marge did just that, and on national television, which raised more than a few eyebrows, beginning with Mark Zaid, an attorney who specializes in national security.

Others also suggested that Greene had just broken federal law, ironically for almost the same thing her lord and savior, Donald Trump, has been indicted for.


Crime GOP Sex Scandals

Lauren Boebert May Be Charged With A Sex Crime Under Colorado’s Lewdness Statute

Rep. Lauren Boebert’s lewd behavior at a Denver theater performance of a musical last week may soon result in her being charged with a sex crime under Colorado law.

According to Newsweek:

Colorado law states that public indecency is committed when a person performs certain acts in a public place, or in a place where the public is likely to see, including lewdly fondling or caressing another individual. Sexual intercourse; lewd exposure of the body but not the genitalia, with the intent to arouse or satisfy a sexual desire; and knowingly exposing one’s genitals to the view of another, under the circumstances in which such conduct is likely to cause affront or alarm, are considered public indecency, as well.

According to statute 18-7-301 of the Colorado criminal code, public indecency is a petty offense sex crime punishable by fines and up to six months in prison for more serious offenses. It tends to carry lighter penalties, though, such as 10 days in jail and/or up to $300 fines, in addition to potential probation, community service or mandatory counseling.

Boebert and her date were caught on video sexually fondling each other, with the man grabbing at her breasts while the congresswoman placed her hand on his crotch.

Does their behavior fall under the Colorado statute? Possibly, but Denver defense attorney Matthew Hand says the indecency law is “vague and overreaching.”

“To be blunt, not all intimacy is intercourse, and lewdness is in the eye of the beholder.”

Even if Boebert isn’t formally charged, the political price she’ll have to pay may be the final straw in what was already projected to be difficult reelection bid for the Colorado Republican, with polls showing her losing favor among voters in her district.

Ironically, Boebert’s ex-husband was convicted of a sex crime in 2004 after he exposed his penis to two underage girls in bowling alley.

In January 2004, when Jayson Boebert was 24, he was arrested for exposing himself to two young women at a Colorado bowling alley. His future wife Lauren Roberts (as she was then known), who was 17 at the time, was also present and was told she was no longer welcome at the bowling alley.

Jayson Boebert pled guilty to “public indecency and lewd exposure” after that incident, according to The New York Post, and was sentenced to four days in jail with a subsequent two years on probation.

No wonder Lauren fell in love with Jayson, huh?

Lindsey Graham Likely To Be Charged By DOJ For His Role In 2020 Election Crimes: Legal Expert

Even though he managed to dodge a bullet from Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is still not in the clear legally and is likely to face criminal charges from the Justice Department, according to a former U.S. attorney.

A grand jury in the Peach State recommended that Graham and two other former GOP senators — Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue — be indicted, but the DA filed no charges against them.

Graham should still be worried, Barbara McQuade, former U.S. Attorney for Michigan noted Saturday morning on MSNBC’s “The Katie Phang Show.”

Phang speculated that Graham may still be forced to testify at the Georgia racketeering trials of Trump and 18 other co-defendants, and that led McQuade to remark, “He may want to invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.”

“The fact that this special grand jury recommended that he be indicted, it does indicate that he has some criminal exposure here,” McQuade added. “So it could be that his lawyer requests immunity for him to testify. If that is not received, then he may refuse to testify and then, when you’ve got these two different cases pending, the federal, case and state case, you have to worry about, even if Fani Willis isn’t going to charge you there’s a possibility he’d be charged federally.”

“And so, because of that exposure, it may be some of these witnesses demand immunity before they agreed to testify and waived their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. So in other words, they may not all be done yet.”

Lindsey had better hope he has one hell of a good attorney. Chances are things are going to get much worse for him before they get better.

MAGA Faithful Are Getting Scammed By Hucksters Selling Worthless ‘Trump Bucks’

There’s an eponymous saying attributed to P.T. Barnum that we’re all familiar with: There’s a sucker born every minute.

But based on a report from NBC News, it’s probably safe to say that when it comes to supporters of failed, one-term, twice-impeached and once-indicted former president Donald Trump, those suckers are born every second.

Take, for example, John Amann, who says he purchased $2,200 worth of Trump Bucks over the past year but was told they were worthless when he tried to cash them in at his bank.

NBC News has identified the Colorado-based companies behind the Trump Bucks as Patriots Dynasty, Patriots Future and USA Patriots and reviewed dozens of social posts, online complaints and hundreds of misleading ads for the products. Additionally, NBC News has found at least a dozen people like Amann who say they invested thousands of dollars after watching the pitches on Telegram and other websites that strongly suggested that Trump himself was endorsing these products.

“Now I’m questioning whether he is aware of this,” Amann said of Trump.

There’s no proof that the failed ex-president is connected to the scam, though if he were, you know he’d be getting a hefty share of the profits and would also likely deny he was.

Patriots Dynasty, the company behind the scam, operates out of a industrial center in Denver and has been given an F rating by the Better Business Bureau.

All of this is part of a larger scam goes by the moniker of the Trump Rebate Banking System (TRB for short), which is telling buyers that when Trump is returned to office, he’ll unveil a new monetary system that will magically transform the Trump Bucks into money that is worth much more than what they paid for the items.

Invest in a TRB membership card “issued by Donald Trump,” the ads from Patriots Dynasty, Patriots Future and USA Patriots claim, and the purchaser who spent, say, $99.99 on a “$10,000 Diamond Trump Bucks” bill will be able to cash it in for $10,000 at major banks and retailers like Walmart, Costco and Home Depot.

“TRB system membership cards are official cards issued by Donald Trump to allow Trump Bucks holders to use Trump Bucks as legal tender and deposit them in banks such as JP Morgan Chase, the Bank of America and Wells Fargo,” a narrator identified only as “John” that appears to be a computer-generated voice says in one YouTube ad just moments after cautioning viewers that “Trump Bucks are not legal tender.”

Another victim, a 75-year-old grandmother who lives in Alabama, had this to say about the Trump Bucks, which she now realizes have no value whatsoever:

“I saw all these ads on Telegram that had Trump pushing coins and checks that he endorsed and how you can cash them in after a year and make a profit. I was told how you can go to Bank of America or Target or Amazon to cash them in.”

But when she went to the local Bank of America branch, she found out that she’d been conned out of $1,500.

“When we get there the lady tells me she’s seen dozens of people coming in to cash these checks and they have nothing to do with this,” the grandmother said.

“Now I realize, well, that was stupid,” she said. “But I bought them because I believed President Trump, because he knows all about finance, and he was going to help the real Trump Patriots get rich.”

Suckers. Every last one of them.
