Republican Congressional Candidate Accused Of Kidnapping 12-Year-Old Girl For Sex

An avowed pedophile who ran for Congress in 2018 on a libertarian and white supremacist platform has been arrested and charged with kidnapping a 12-year-old girl he met online and groomed before setting up a meeting with her.

HuffPost reports:

“Nathan Daniel Larson, 40, was taken into custody at a Denver airport last week after allegedly attempting to fly with the child from her home in California to his home in Virginia while she was disguised with a wig, authorities said Saturday.

“Larson’s alleged scheme was thwarted after the child was reported missing by her parents that same morning. An ensuing investigation revealed she may have been coerced into running away with an older man, later identified as Larson, whom she met on social media in mid-October, the Fresno County Sheriff’s office said.

When investigators began doing a bit of research on Larson, they found some very disturbing facts from his past:

“He is a white supremacist and a well-known advocate for pedophilia. This is a man who runs a website, which encourages the raping of children and sharing of naked photos and video of children being raped.”

As a matter of fact, when he ran in 2018, Larson bragged about his perversions:

“In his campaign manifesto, he admitted to supporting the legalization of incestuous marriage, child pornography, the ability to rape and beat women as property, and white supremacy.

“’A lot of people are tired of political correctness and being constrained by it. People prefer when there’s an outsider who doesn’t have anything to lose and is willing to say what’s on a lot of people’s minds.'”

Larson also claimed that he had raped his late ex-wife and was eager to rape his young daughter. He later surrendered his parental rights to the girl.

But perhaps most frightening of all is that investigators believe Larson has likely attempted to lure other young girls:

“Due to the sophisticated nature of how Larson groomed this Fresno girl, detectives believe he has victimized other children in the past, but those cases have never been reported to law enforcement.”

In 2008, Larson sent a letter to the U.S. Secret Service in which he stated his intentions to assassinate either then-outgoing President George W. Bush or incoming President Barack Obama. He was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison for that.

Hopefully, a judge will throw the book at Larson this time and put him behind bars for a very long time.

Crime Donald Trump Impeachment

House Impeachment Report Names Devin Nunes As Co-Conspirator In Ukraine Bribery Scandal

The House Intelligence Committee has now released its report on the impeachment of President Donald Trump, and while it confirms that Trump did indeed seek to bribe Ukraine in exchange for military aid. But it also directly implicates the ranking Republican on the committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).

As the Daily Beast reports:

“The records shed new light on the relationship between Nunes, one of the impeachment inquiries most vehement critics, and the individuals at the center of what committee Democrats describe as an illicit campaign to weaponize U.S. foreign policy to Trump’s political advantage.

“The records in the committee’s 300-page report show three phone calls between Nunes and Giuliani on April 10 of this year, and at least two with Parnas two days later. Derek Harvey, a member of Nunes’ staff, also had a phone call with Giuliani the following month.”

Nunes has been one of Trump’s most eager (and often delusional) supporters since the president was first elected. He attempted to run interference during the investigation conducted by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and has eagerly spread numerous conspiracy theories in an attempt to steer attention away from Trump and the White House.

Just Security‘s Kate Brannen carefully laid out the way Nunes was himself an integral part of the Ukraine scheme, posting her revelations on Twitter:

An attorney for Parnas confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Nunes did indeed have numerous contacts with his client, who is currently under indictment in New York:

Now that the impeachment is moving to the House Judiciary Committee, you can expect both Parnas and Fruman to be key witnesses against Trump, Giuliani, and Nunes, all of whom are intimately involved in the larger conspiracy.

The truth is starting to come out, and it suggests that it’s not just Donald Trump who sold his dark soul for political power and advancement.


Republican Senator Now Ensnared In Trump’s Growing Ukraine Conspiracy

As House Democrats prepare to vote open public hearings on the Ukraine scandal this week, one of the senators who may have decide whether or not to remove Donald Trump from office now finds himself caught in the center of the larger conspiracy and could wind up being destroyed by his connection to the matter.

According to the Washington Post, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) met with a former Ukrainian diplomat as recently as July, around the same time as the infamous phone call Trump made to Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine:

“Sen. Ron Johnson met in July with a former Ukrainian diplomat who has circulated unproven claims that Ukrainian officials assisted Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, a previously unreported contact that underscores the GOP senator’s involvement in the unfolding narrative that triggered the impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

“In an interview this past week, Andrii Telizhenko said he met with Johnson (Wis.) for at least 30 minutes on Capitol Hill and with Senate staff for five additional hours. He said discussions focused in part on ‘the DNC issue’ — a reference to his unsubstantiated claim that the Democratic National Committee worked with the Ukrainian government in 2016 to gather incriminating information about then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Telizhenko said he could not recall the date of the meeting, but a review of his Facebook page revealed a photo of him and Johnson posted on July 11.”

Johnson has been a strong Trump ally and defender, even going to far as to co-sponsor a Senate resolution with Lindsey Graham (R-SC) stating opposition to the impeachment inquiry. Which raises a larger issue: Why is Johnson so eager to excuse Trump’s high crimes and misdemeanors when he’s supposed to be impartial when the president’s impeachment is before the upper chamber? And why did the senator choose to get involved with a conspiracy theorist from Ukraine?

If Johnson has any shame, he will announce that he plans to recuse himself from taking part in Trump’s impeachment. Otherwise, he cannot be considered a impartial juror in the process. He also needs to be brought before the Senate Ethics Committee to answer for his actions.

It’s beginning to look like the Ukraine scandal may wind up destroying Trump and the political party that has been his chief enabler.

Corruption Crime The Trump Adminstration

Kellyanne Conway Snaps At Fox Host For Asking About Her Violating Federal Law (VIDEO)

Earlier this week, the Office of Special Counsel announced that White House counselor Kellyanne Conway had violated the Hatch Act on two separate occasions by illegally using her position to campaign for two GOP candidates.

Conway appeared on Fox “News” Thursday morning and was asked by host Bill Hemmer about the fact that she had been accused of breaking a federal statute. Conway told Hemmer:

“The president and I have spoken about this. I’ve not made a comment on this at all and I won’t today.

“The White House has spoken.”

Hemmer then asked the logical follow-up question:

“Has the president told you what he desires from this?”

That caused Conway to get snippy and reply:

“I won’t reveal my private conversations with the president … except that which he would like me to speak about publicly.”

Since Trump is the official who has to decide what sanctions will be levied against Conway for her actions, Hemmer then inquired:

“So, no punishment given?”

A clearly irritated Conway told the host:

“I didn’t say that. I just said that we’ve spoken about this.”

Let’s be perfectly clear: Donald Trump is not going to do anything at all, even though Conway broke federal ethics law. And the main reason he won’t is that Trump doesn’t think the law applies to him or anyone who works for him. He believes he’s above the law and should never be second-guessed.

If you doubt that Trump is a lawless head of state, consider that he has repeatedly tried to shut down the investigation being conducted into the 2016 election, even though he swears he did nothing wrong. He fired FBI Director James Comey over the Russia probe and even attempted to have the White House counsel get rid of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Conway doesn’t want to talk about her Hatch Act violations because to do so would only serve to prove that she and her boss are blatant hypocrites.

Time to lock them all up!

Corruption Crime The Trump Adminstration WTF?!

‘Alternative Facts’ Kellyanne Conway Found In Direct Violation Of Federal Law

Back in December, in the heat of a special election for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became Attorney General of the United States, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway went on Fox “News” and took verbal shots at Doug Jones, the Democratic challenger to Republican nominee/accused pedophile Roy Moore:

“The only endorsement that matters in this race is President Trump’s. And he came out questioning the ideology and the vote of Doug Jones. He’ll be a reliable vote for tax hikes. He’ll be a reliable vote against border security. He’ll be a reliable vote against national security and keeping ISIS in retreat. He’ll be the reliable vote against the Second Amendment and against life.”

That statement was a direct violation of the Hatch Act, and the Office of Special Counsel has now informed the White House that Conway — on two separate occasions — broke federal law which prohibits executive branch employees from engaging in political activity.

Shortly after Conway made the comments which landed her in hot water, former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub commented:

“The willfulness of Conway’s violation and her openly expressed disdain for efforts to hold her accountable for complying with ethics requirements make clear that anything less than removal from the federal service or a lengthy unpaid suspension will not deter future misconduct on her part.”

However, don’t hold your breath waiting for Conway to be kicked to the curb. Under federal regulations, violations of the Hatch Act are referred to the president for any disciplinary action, and that seems unlikely coming from a man as unethical as Donald Trump.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah tried to dismiss any concern over Conway’s statements when they were referred to the OSC in 2017:

“Ms. Conway did not advocate for or against the election of a candidate, and specifically declined to encourage Alabamans to vote a certain way.”

Fortunately, Conway and the president’s efforts did nothing to save Moore’s candidacy, and Doug Jones is now the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in deep red Alabama in two and half decades.

That’s what we refer to as sweet karma.
