Eagle Forum founder and right wingnut Phyllis Schlafly implies that President Obama is intentionally bringing the deadly Ebola virus to America to make us more like Africa.

Here’s more from Right Wing Watch:

In an interview with WorldNetDaily published today, Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly weighed in on the unfounded theory gaining traction in the right-wing media that Central American young people are to blame for an outbreak of a childhood respiratory illness in the U.S.

“There are all kinds of diseases in the rest of the world, and we don’t want them in this country,” Schlafly told WND, adding that “of all the things [Obama has] done, I think this thing of letting these diseased people into this country to infect our own people is just the most outrageous of all.”

She went on to imply that President Obama is intentionally allowing people infected with Ebola into the United States because he wants America to be “just like everybody else, and if Africa is suffering from Ebola, we ought to join the group and be suffering from it, too. That’s his attitude.”

Phyllis Schlafly uttered this nonsense with a straight face. Wow. There are no words….

SMH:  Brigitte Jackson was arrested for allegedly filing a fake Georgia state tax return for $94 million.  Gee, I wonder what was the thought process behind cooking up this scheme?

Jackson was arrested on Friday when she went to a bank counter inside a Cobb County supermarket to pick up her check. She is facing five charges, including conspiracy to defraud the state and attempted theft by taking.

Investigators are looking for her cousin, Darrius White, who also filed a fake tax return, claiming he made an income of $99 million.  He is already on felony probation.

Um, there are no words to describe to level of stupidity. None.

Shona Carter-Brooks Under Fire for Strapping Baby to Wedding Dress Train as She Walked Down Aisle

JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL:  Shona Carter-Brooks and her husband, Johnathan Brooks, are under fire for attaching her one-month old baby daughter to the train of her wedding gown as she walked down the aisle. WTF?

Carter-Brooks said the baby was “well-secured” and that she was “covered by Christ.” The couple wed in Ripley, Tenn., last month.

However Carter-Brooks hit back at her critics in two elaborate posts on her Facebook page, saying she does not regret the decision. ‘People questioning what we do, commenting all negative, and just doing the most,’ she wrote.
‘We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose its power.

‘So to the media, radio, news, and whomever else wanting to talk about what WE do here you go: Media Media I see how it works regardless the situation or purpose people gone have something negative to say! ‘The answer is we do what we want, when we want, as long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gona continue to be fine.’ Source: Daily Mail

I am always bothered by people who post all their business on social media sites, especially Facebook. What a ridiculous thing to do to her baby.

Miss. Judge Bill Weisenberger Allegedly Slapped, Yelled Racial Slur at Mentally Disabled Black Man

Mississippi judge Bill Weisenberger allegedly slapped a mentally disabled black man, Eric Rivers, at a flea market earlier this month and shouted, “run, n*gger, run, the Clarion-Ledger reports.

Rivers’ faily filed a complaint against the Madison County Justice Court judge, who is white, accusing him of striking him at the flea market in Canton, Miss., on May 8.

William Truly, ex-Canton mayor and president of the Canton chapter of the NAACP, said, “This is 2014, not 1960, where someone could slap a young man and call out “run n*gger run.”

Tammy Westbrook, who witnessed the encounter between Judge Bill Weisenberger and Eric Rivers, told the newspaper Rivers was offering to help vendors at the flea market unload their goods when he was slapped and the slur shouted as he fled.

FL Firefighter Janeen McKenzie Arrested for Firing at Man in Drunken Rage

Janeen McKenzie, a 46-year-old Pompano Beach firefighter, was arrested Thursday for shooting at Anthony Santos during drunken rage early Saturday morning. According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, McKenzie, who works with the Pompano Beach Fire Rescue, was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Anthony Santos told deputies he met McKenzie at a bar and drove her home, where she invited him inside. Santos said she poured a glass of wine and continued to drink before they started to kiss and she showed him her bedroom.

Santos, 35, said she insisted that he drink some wine, so he took a sip and placed the glass down. After a few minutes in the bedroom, they walked back to the hallway, where McKenzie pressed her body against his, kissed and hugged him. He said McKenzie pulled him closer, grabbed his hands and placed them around her neck.

That’s when Santos pulled his hands away and began to leave because “things were getting weird,” he told deputies.

Santos said McKenzie walked to the kitchen and poured a second glass of wine, so he moved her hand away and told her she had enough. Santos said McKenzie’s attitude changed at that point, and she asked him to look inside the drawer of a nightstand in the dining room. He saw a pistol, shut the drawer and continued to leave.

Moments later, Santos said, McKenzie had the gun in her hand and was pointing it at him. Santos said she fired a shot that came close to his face as he was just outside the front door.

McKenzie ordered him to the ground several times, but Santos refused, so she fired at him twice more, with both bullets striking the asphalt, Santos told deputies. Source: Local10.com

Texas continues to defy political logic. The latest is a political action committee named “Boats and Hoes PAC.” That was until it sparked outrage and the “Boats and Hoes PAC” will now be just a memory. One that leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

A Texas political action committee called Boats ‘N Hoes PAC will be just a memory by Thursday, according to the Republican political consultant who is the boss of the man who started it.

Houston consultant Allen Blakemore confirmed Wednesday evening that his firm’s bookkeeper, Shaun Nowacki, started the PAC, which is a reference to a song from the 2008 film Step Brothers. The committee will be dissolved on Thursday, Blakemore said.

Blakemore said Nowacki was contrite about the controversy created by the PAC’s name, which surfaced on social media Wednesday afternoon. Nowacki filed paperwork with the Texas Ethics Commission to create the PAC on April 1 and named himself treasurer. The PAC has not filed any fundraising reports since its creation two weeks ago. It is the only PAC Nowacki is listed with on the Texas Ethics Commission’s website.

Nowacki did not respond to several requests for comment Wednesday.

Ex-Rep. Allen West’s New Book Riddled with Fake Quotes from Founding Fathers

Ex-Rep. Allen West’s New Book Riddled with Fake Quotes from Founding Fathers

If you are going to write a book, at least get your quotes correct to avoid the embarrassment of being called out.  Former Florida lawmaker Allen West has a new book out and its riddled with quotes attributed to the Founding Fathers that were never uttered.

According to the Palm Beach Post, West’s “Guardian of the Republic,” which outlines his political philosophy and his “warrior code,” includes many quotes that have been described by historians as erroneous.

“Thomas Jefferson said it first: ‘A government big enough to give you everything you want is also big enough to take it away,’” West wrote.

According to researchers at the Thomas Jefferson Foundation in Charlottesville, Virginia, while that quote has appeared on coffee cups and t-shirts, it doesn’t appear in any of Jefferson’s writings. So many fake quotations have been attributed to the drafter of the Declaration of Independence, that the foundation felt compelled to create a “Spurious Quotations” list…

A quote attributed to Patrick Henry in West’s book didn’t come from the Virginian’s writings or speeches, says Henry biographer Thomas Kidd, a professor of history at Baylor University.

West quotes Henry as saying: “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”

Kidd described the quote as a new one that has gained popularity via the Internet.

Dwayne Yeager Stages Burglary at Florida Home to Avoid Work

Dwayne Yeager Stages Burglary at FL Home Because He Wanted to Skip Work

Dwayne Yeager didn’t want to go to work at Dooson Hydro Technology on Monday so he staged a burglary at his Florida home, then called the police to report it shortly after 7 a.m.

Yeager said he had been gone from his home for only 45 minutes when he discovered the break-in. He told a 911 dispatcher,  “I come back, my door’s wide open. My windows to my son’s bedroom are open. My TVs are laying on the ground.”

When deputies arrived at the home, they discovered it was ransacked, with a door and window open, but no signs of forced entry, as Dwayne Yeager claimed. They also questioned neighbors, who told them they saw Yeager leaving his home for a short time and then returning. They also told police, when Yeager returned, they saw him lift the blinds and open the window. The neighbors further state that he walked outside the house and waited for police to arrive, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said. Ooops!

The Tampa Bay Times reports that a tipster said there was no vehicle at Dwayne Yeager’s house before he arrived back home.  He was charged with one count of providing false information to law enforcement and was later released on $500 bail.

 

‘Scottish Aristocrats’ Colin and Andrea Chisholm Arrested for Welfare Fraud

(OPINION) — These are the faces of welfare fraud in the U.S. that the Republican Party would choose to ignore…

Andrea and Colin Chisholm 350x196 Scottish Aristocrats Colin and Andrea Chisholm Arrested for Welfare Fraud

‘Scottish Aristocrats’ Colin and Andrea Chisholm Arrested for Welfare Fraud

Colin Chisholm III and his wife, Andrea, allegedly received more than $165,000 in food stamps and other public assistance benefits for a 7-year-period while living on a multi-million yacht in Florida. Um, these people aren’t in the 47 percent of Americans Mitt Romney called deadbeats.

The couple, residents of Minnesota, were caught in the Bahamas after police told them their visas had expired. They were escorted, along with their son and dog, onto a ship bound for Fort Lauderdale. The ‘Scottish aristocrats’ were arrested on their arrival in Port Everglades, according to a statement from Hennepin County prosecutor, Mike Freeman’s office.

Colin and Andrea Chisholm were each charged with a felony count of wrongfully obtaining public assistance in excess of $35,000.

The couple purchased a $1.2 million yacht, known as The Andrea Aras in April 2005, shortly after applying for welfare benefits in Minnesota, according to criminal complaints which were originally filed in February but remained sealed while authorities searched for them.

The Chisholms lived on the yacht near Palm Beach, Fla., for 28 months while they claimed to be living in Minnesota, the complaints say. Colin Chisholm was the chief executive officer of a satellite TV and broadband services company, while his wife bred pedigree dogs.

The Chisholms allegedly deposited more than $2.6 million in bank accounts not reported on their applications for welfare benefits between 2005 and 2012, the complaints say. They lived in luxury homes in suburban Minneapolis and previously owned a $30,000 Lexus. They also collected benefits in Florida.

Colin and Andrea Chisholm are two rich people trying to rip off the system, all the while people like Paul Ryan and others in the Republican Party as screaming for cuts to food stamps and other programs to help the poor, insinuating that there’s fraud. Yeah, there’s fraud from rich white folks ripping off the system.
