Yes and no: It is scare-mongering overgeneralization, but antifa (antifascist protesters) have a specific meaning, i.e., the sometimes-violent protestors who stand against the alt-right.

Bryce Marlatt named as suspect in lewd acts case involving Uber driver

OKLAHOMA CITY–Oklahoma State Senator, Bryce Marlatt, has been named as a suspect for alleged lewd acts against a female Uber driver.

According to the police report, an officer was approached at the Oncue at NW 23rd and Santa Fe by the Uber driver, who told him that she was unsure what she needed to do, but had been assaulted on Monday, June 26.

She stated that “she drives for Uber and was transporting a customer when he made advances on her during transit.”

The police report states the suspect “was grabbing her forcefully and kissing victim on the neck while she was driving.”

Investigators are still looking into the case and so far, Marlatt has not been arrested.

Regulation-hating Arkansas Republican’s day care facility investigated after boy dies inside hot van

Sullivan asked the Arkansas Early Childhood Commission last year to reduce a requirement that at least half of child care employees at any facility be certified in CPR and first aid.
Why would this matter to him? Why? I've been CPR certified. It's not an onerous requirement, and it makes sense if you work with children to require it. The media needs to challenge the "benefits" of these freakish demands.
The employees would have to have been paid. It was about $$$$$

Has this been mentioned?

http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show ... _fb_maddow
Louisiana’s Clay Higgins, in his capacity as a local sheriff, appeared in a video last year in which he described several wanted members of a street gang as “animals” and “heathens,” adding, “You will be hunted, you will be trapped, and if you raise a weapon to a man like me, we’ll return fire with superior fire.”

After the video surfaced, Higgins resigned – which cleared the way for his election to Congress, where he’s already making quite an impression.

After a terrorist attack in London last month, the freshman Republican congressman wrote that “the free world” and “all of Christendom” is at war with “Islamic horror.”

And over the holiday weekend, Higgins managed to make headlines for himself once again. The Times-Picayune reported:


Just in time for Independence Day, U.S. Rep. Clay Higgins, R-Port Barre, has a video message for America. But instead of visiting constituent cookouts, shooting off fireworks and waving the United States flag, Higgins delivers a stark dispatch from the Nazis’ Auschwitz concentration camp at Oswiecim, Poland.

“A great sense of dread comes over you in this place,” Higgins says, leading the viewer on a five-minute, nine-second tour of the site, with a dirge-like solo violin playing in the background.

There's a couple of commandments involved if they use that defense.

Today's winner is: Bryce Marlatt
https://www.buzzfeed.com/briannasacks/a ... .rsoDrW0RJ
Bryce Marlatt, a Republican state senator from Oklahoma, is being accused of forcefully grabbing and kissing a female Uber driver while she was dropping him off at a hotel.

The driver picked up a male rider around 10 p.m. on June 26 to take him to a hotel in Oklahoma City, according to a police report filed two days later. During the ride, the driver said the rider forcefully grabbed her and started kissing her on the neck...

Marlatt, 37, has served in the Oklahoma State Senate since 2008, representing District 27 in the western part of the state. In 2015, he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor after a sheriff's deputy found him drunk and asleep in his running pickup truck on a country road in Oklahoma's Woodward County.

Local station Fox 25 reported that after waking Marlatt up by rapping on his truck window several times, officers told the lawmaker that he smelled like alcohol. When asked if he'd been drinking, police said Marlatt replied: "No more than anyone else."

They probably did weigh the argument that the artifacts were their true heritage and in the improper hands of heathens but did not try it.

I have seen it come up before though when talking about removing antiquities from the middle east, that they are the heritage of all (western european) people and should not be hoarded by the land's current (brown) inhabitants.

Of course it was. They were the only ones with the manpower and money to organize it. "Subsistence looting" under there control was a non-starter & life ender.

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) is using audio from the June shooting at a Republican baseball practice that injured House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) in a new ad.

The ad opens with the sound of five gunshots along with audio of the response to the shooting at last month's practice for Republican lawmakers before the annual Congressional Baseball Game.

"June 14: A Bernie Sanders supporter fires on Republican congressmen. Mo Brooks gives his belt as a tourniquet to help the wounded," the text on the screen reads.

That's disgusting.

So is this.

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/g ... -with-guns
A Republican House member thinks the GOP women of the Senate are to blame for Congress’ inability to address Obamacare.

Appearing on a Corpus Christi radio station Friday, Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) not only suggested that it was Republican women’s fault that the party is fractured on how to get rid of Obamacare, but also said if it was “a guy from south Texas” at the center of the disagreement, he might ask them to resolve their issues with a gun fight.

Considering it is pretty much the GOP attitude to ALWAYS blame someone else that doesn't sound at all surprising, and that he is from TX even less so.


The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

Ooopsie. Not exactly behaving badly, but look what happened when the mic wasn't turned off.
At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off her microphone. Apparently speaking to Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat of the committee, Collins discussed the federal budget — and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing.

After Reed praises Collins’s handling of the hearing, held by the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee, she laments the administration’s handling of spending.

“I swear, [the Office of Management and Budget] just went through and whenever there was ‘grant,’ they just X it out,” Collins says. “With no measurement, no thinking about it, no metrics, no nothing. It’s just incredibly irresponsible.”
And more gossip from those two at the link.

Broward GOP uncovers a nasty secret about its young party secretary

The Broward County Republicans are in turmoil today after revelations that a freshly elected member of their executive board is a man who once was charged with attempted murder in the savage claw-hammer beating of a then-classmate at a Los Angeles prep school for multi-millionaires’ children.

Four months after 28-year-old Rupert Tarsey was elected secretary, party officials have found out the young philanthropist and supporter of President Donald Trump is really Rupert Ditsworth.

And a decade ago, the then-Beverly Hills teenager was charged with attempted murder in Los Angeles after hitting Harvard-Westlake School classmate Elizabeth Barcay over the head at least 40 times, splitting her skull open.

Now, local GOP bigs are desperate for Tarsey to resign and worried about the image of the party in the overwhelmingly Democratic turf of former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

Thing is, Tarsey says he was elected fair and square and has no plan to resign.
