Evangelical charged with raping a child
The authorities in Rutherford County, TN, have arrested a traveling Texas evangelical, Benjamin Garlick, 32, and his wife Shaantel, 29, for sex crimes committed against a young child.

One evil couple is an anecdote, not proof. Nevertheless, can we please stop lying that religion promotes morality? Especially as US crime rates are higher than average in the Bible Belt.
Is US Representative a part-time job?
Despite the threat of a government shutdown, the House has headed home. After a 6-week vacation, which included the first week in September, followed by a 3-day week, the House has wrapped up a 4-day week so they can celebrate a 4-day weekend.
Assuming an 8-hour day, Congress is in session for 848 hours. This lack of hustle means the taxpayers compensate them $205 an hour + benefits.
Mexico on track to have its first Jewish, female president
Mexico’s general election is on June 2, 2024. The polls point to a historical first: Claudia Sheinbaum, currently the frontrunner, could become the country’s first Jewish and female president. Cool. (Story HERE)
Is David Brooks a lush?
NYT's David Brooks seems to confirm he likes drinking. Trying to make a point about the economy, Brooks tweeted that he had had a $78 meal at Newark Airport. Social media detectives analyzed his tweet and identified the restaurant as the Smokehouse Restaurant in Newark Airport Terminal A.
Further research showed the burger and fries cost $17 a fact confirmed by the restaurant, who tweeted their take on Brooks’ down-time editorializing. “Looks like someone was knocking back some serious drinks — bar tab was almost 80% and he’s complaining about the cost of his meal. Keep drinking, buddy — we get paid off everything.” (Story HERE)
The NYT bean counters should audit the rest of Brooks’ expense claims.
Can Megyn Kelly decide if she is pro or con pussy grabbing?
Reacting to RW immoralists defending Russell Brand after five accusations of sexual assault, Megyn Kelly declared “I hate to see conservatives, who are supposed to eschew celebrity culture, act like lap dogs to Russell Brand—just because he's winked at their side."
She is shameless. She criticizes conservatives for rushing to defend a pussy-grabber days after she gives a self-confessed pussy grabber media oxygen. What is the difference between Brand and Trump? (Story HERE)
A drag Queen calls Boebert a liar
In apologizing for her public sex acts, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) implied that her enthusiastic concupiscence was caused by the Democratic politics of a man she hardly knew. This story, like all her others, was a house built on sand and quickly demolished by a drag queen in the know.
Kendra Matic, who has performed at Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar (co-owned by Boebert’s chest caresser), refuted the claim. In an interview with TMZ, she said,
"First date and someone is touching your boobies like that? I know that they were dating for a while. For months."
"I don't like this girl. I don't understand why she has that hate speech all the time. We don't do anything wrong. I don't harm anyone. Who cares what I do in my bed or if I'm gay or not? I don't know why people care so much about what you do in your bed. At least I do that in my bed and not in a theater." (Story HERE)
A conservative groper calls Fox News “woke”
Matt Schlapp, the American Conservative Union’s Chairman, has not been on Fox since January, His banishment came after some poor staffer, who was required to chauffer the dipsomaniac from bar to bar, accused Matt of “aggressively fondling” his crotch. I suspect it is not the sex angle but the gay part that has rendered the closeted — or equal opportunity — dick-grabber a persona non grata on the OG RW propaganda channel.
Schlapp has a different take. He accuses Fox of being “woke”. This foolishness proves that the word, which never had a meaning in Whitelandia, still does not. (Story HERE)
