Republican Gays are Closeted Dems
Chronwatch ^ | October 12, 2006 | Cliff Kincaid

Posted on 10/14/2006 10:05:14 AM PDT by Inspectorette

So if the gay Republicans are not really Republicans, what are they?

The complex nature of the "dirty trick" against the Republicans over the Mark Foley scandal is beginning to emerge. It doesn't involve a George Soros-funded group or emails that had been in the possession of the media or shopped around by Democratic operatives. Instead, the GOP has played a trick on itself. The party brought so-called gay Republicans into positions of power in Congress only to realize that the confidential information they held about a secret gay network was political dynamite that could backfire.

At this point in the scandal, the issue is not whether there was such a network, but how big it is. CBS Evening News correspondent Gloria Borger reported the emerging belief that "a group of high-level gay Republican staffers were protecting" Foley. A New York Times story by Mark Leibovich confirmed that gay Republicans have occupied "crucial staff positions" in Congress and "have played decisive roles in passing legislation, running campaigns and advancing careers."

The mystery man at the center of the scandal, Jeff Trandahl, is supposed to be a "lifelong Republican" who is gay. But Trandahl, who supervised the congressional page program as House clerk and knew about the controversial Foley emails many years ago, has a strange way of showing his Republicanism. A search of Federal Election Commission (FEC) records over the last six years shows no financial contributions to the Republican Party or Republican candidates. Instead, Trandahl in 2000 gave $1,200 to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, which gives over 80 percent of its political campaign money to Democrats.

Trandahl is so much of a Republican that he joined the board of the Human Rights Campaign Fund, another gay political action committee that commits most of its funds to electing Democrats. Its latest list of "winning candidates" is all Democrats, except for Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee, who admits not voting for President Bush in 2004.

If you are getting the idea that gay Republicans may be closeted Democrats, then you are beginning to understand how the Mark Foley scandal could have been a Democratic Party dirty trick.

In response to the scandal, a representative of the Log Cabin Republicans, a homosexual activist group, has been on cable channels like CNN and MSNBC expressing the fear that the Foley scandal will be used to root out homosexual influence in the Republican Party. But the Log Cabin Republicans are so Republican that its board voted 22-2 against endorsing President Bush in 2004 because of his stand against homosexual marriage.

So if the gay Republicans are not really Republicans, what are they? One veteran observer of this network told AIM that the Foley scandal should make it crystal clear that the gay Republicans are in reality "liberal activists" who want to use the party to advance the same homosexual agenda embraced by the Democrats.

Ominously, the Foley scandal suggests that this network has inside information about the sexual behavior of members of Congress and their staffers that can be exploited in order to create scandals at a moment's notice. Only now are House Republican leaders like Dennis Hastert beginning to understand the trap they may have gotten themselves into. They thought they were being tolerant and diverse and constructing a "big tent" when they were giving gay Republicans important positions of power. It is now apparent that this power has been used to sabotage the party from within. Conservatives who blame Soros, the media or the Democrats for this debacle are whistling past the graveyard, which happens to be near the place where Hastert made his statement the other day that staffers will be fired "if there was a cover-up."

It is extremely significant that Rep. Jim Kolbe, an openly gay Republican, has emerged to play a key role in the Foley scandal. Embraced by Hastert in a video tribute at a Log Cabin Republican event earlier this year, Kolbe was the first closeted gay Republican to have been threatened and blackmailed by radical gay activists into coming out of the closet and embracing key parts of the gay agenda.

Now we find out that Kolbe, a former page himself, knew about Foley's emails as far back as 2000. That is when he was a member of the House Page Board. Kolbe, according to the Washington Post, served as a "mentor" to the pages and "invited four former pages to make use of his Washington home," supposedly when he was out of town. In the most recent revelation, it has been reported that Kolbe took two former pages, both male, on a trip to the Grand Canyon.

Kolbe says that a former page told him that he was receiving emails from Foley that made him feel uncomfortable. Instead of passing this information on to House leaders or other authorities, Kolbe says that he provided it to Foley's office and Trandahl. In a statement, Kolbe said that he assumed the email contact ceased "since the former Page never raised the issue again with my office."

How about that for accountability? The information about a former page being sexually harassed by Foley is turned over to Foley and Trandahl, two of Kolbe's fellow homosexuals. It's no wonder the young man didn't raise the matter again with Kolbe. He saw that it was a dead end.

Kolbe also declared, in his statement, that he believed this was the "appropriate way to handle this incident given the information I had and the fact that the young man was no longer a Page and not subject to the jurisdiction of the program." Such a statement seems to suggest that Kolbe viewed the pages as fair game for Foley, or at least a private matter for the disgraced Congressman, once they became former pages. That is exactly the modus operandi that Foley seems to have used. He targeted and cultivated the young men when they were working for Congress and then made his move when they had left the page program. Foley's progression from "friendly" to "explicit" Internet messages was part of his pattern as a homosexual pedophile predator.

Some liberal and left-wing groups, in addition to the gay Republican organizations, seem fearful of what the investigation might uncover. But radical gay activists sympathetic to the Democratic Party's pro-homosexual agenda are already naming the names of members of the secret network, reaching from Congress into the White House and the Republican National Committee. One such activist is Michael Rogers. Another is John Aravosis, who worked for Republican Senator Ted Stevens from 1989 to 1994.

Trandahl, who was appointed by Hastert as House Clerk in 1999 and resigned on November 18, 2005, figures in almost every important account of the Foley scandal as someone with inside information. David Rogers of the Wall Street Journal noted that Trandahl was "an adviser and friend" to Foley and was "in a unique position to recognize the implicit danger in the fact that Mr. Foley wasn't just close to pages on the House floor but was pursuing contact via email." Although Trandahl has hired a lawyer and hasn't talked publicly, numerous reports portray him in a flattering light, saying he tried to warn various Congressional officials about Foley's conduct. Calls to Trandahl and his lawyer were not returned.

It seems appropriate to note that one of the few Republicans financially supported by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, the pro-Democratic group to which Trandahl made his contributions in 2000, was Rep. Jim Kolbe. Was the first "openly gay" Republican member of Congress a closeted Democrat as well? It's certainly the case that he started acting more like a Democrat once his secret life was exposed. He has, for example, become a prominent advocate of gays in the military and has denounced the proposed federal amendment protecting traditional marriage.

It is also beyond dispute that the current scandalous state of affairs will outlive the Foley scandal unless the secret network of bludgeon and blackmail is exposed.

An investigation of Kolbe, 64, is obviously warranted. He may be retiring from Congress, but his camping trip with 17-year-old male pages seems to be at least as questionable as the Foley Internet messages. Let's hope knee-jerk Republican defenders don't try to defend that trip as just a "friendly" excursion.

It's early in the probe, but we may be looking at emerging evidence of a homosexual recruitment ring that operated on Capitol Hill. It's time to get beyond partisan politics and follow the evidence wherever it leads. Our media should not be intimidated by charges of "gay bashing." They must lead the way in getting to the bottom of this terrible abuse of power.

Makes one wonder how many of the so called conservatives on FR who want all of us to stay home to teach our party a lesson. Or as Rush calls it "Winning by losing!"

Watch my eye you dumb Republicans. You are getting very sleepy. Stay home on Election Day and teach your party a lesson. Stay home my pretty ones and enable me to be the House Speaker! Give the Evil GW/Cheney/Roves what they deserve, me as House Speaker!

Why is it a scandal for Republican office holders to be homosexual, but for a Democrat office holder to be a homosexual is a badge of honor?

Agreed , I'd like to consider myself to be one of the ultraCs onboard here, but that will NOT prevent me from voting.


Now whether I will vote for any candidate for Gub in California is another question.

In case anyone hasn't noticed, We do happen to have an activist Gub, one surrounded with leftist advisors and such.. and also a member of the RMSP. I personally seriously doubt that is an attempt to be balanced in his representation.

Supposedly because it's considered hypocritical of Republicans to be involved in activities that they, as a group, oppose, whereas Democrats are sooo tolerant, loving, and accepting of all lifestyles (unless you're a Christian and/or conservative).

I don't know that the Republican Party formally condemns homosexuality (other than the religious right wing of the party). The difference is that the GOP does not believe that this particular lifestyle should be given special treatment in public policy, or officially declared "normative."

The basic truth of the matter is that Democrats have to lie and use communist tactics because their ideas a anti-Christian and even Marxist.

Democrats have no problem with lying because there is no such thing as righteousness, there is only winning, which is for them, the defeat and destruction of God's influence.

Correction Brother: Not "fifth" , rather "filth".

As in "filthy dirty tricks"...which most rational people are not buying.

IE: "painting the entire party as a bunch of gays" is utterly ridiculous and it will backfire on the juvenile minds that stooped to such idiotic tactics.

This is just another stupid manuever on the part of the Hate America Party. They will inherit the wrath of decent citizens everywhere.

Let's put aside thoughts of revenge and address our responsibilities as winners and stewards of our national heritage.

I think that the Republican Party is in tune with most Americans on this: nobody wants to hear about somebody else's bedroom exploits, whether hetero OR homo. The radical gays insist on waving their dirty skivvies in our faces, and it's repulsive to most people.

They love to scream discrimination, when it's really special treatment that they are demanding. And the supposed "right" to marry each other is nothing more than a grab for Social Security benefits. As Rush says, "Follow the money".

Absolutely - the odious John Conyers has already said that he intends to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Bush, and they are obviously attempting to build a case against VP Cheney as well, in the highly unlikely event that they were successful in their attempt against President Bush.

Why isn't anyone smart enough to understand that this can be turned 360 against the Democrats.

The Democrats are admitting there is "gay shame", the Democrats are exploiting "gay shame", and if any homosexual votes Democrat in November they are a sucker in more ways than one, because this will not stop at Foley's door. There is a list of DC Democrats and high-level staffers in the closet too.

If we are going to root out gays covering up for each other, then we are going to root out any gay of either party that was involved in any illegal or immoral activity.

The Democrats want scorched earth, and that's exactly what they're going to get.

Their own "gong show" of elected miscreants don't need any "help" destroying their own party.

Let's take the higher road. Any comment about John Conyers is likely to get the commenter contaminated in the filth of this creep.

"Democrats will attack and alienate their core constituencies"

Anecdotal evidence of this: I meet with friends once a week at a bar on a neighborhood "strip" beside one of the larger, public universities in NC ... the crowd is exceedingly entertaining for a political junkie such as myself. It's a "belly of the beast" sort of place for a conservative; unreconstructed hippies who have lived there since their heyday, professors, grad students, a few of the "workers" there openly admit communist sympathies, you get the picture. The Foley topic makes them very uncomfortable. When one tries the standard Dim line about sexual predators, you can just see the eyes flying open, and the faces reddening across the bar.

I agree that it's a good thing to take the higher road, but a lot of the nasty things the Dems are doing is having a deleterious effect on us because we don't seem to be fighting back.

Instead, we have Speaker Hastert seeming to be caught flat-footed in the Foley mess, and a lying, biased media that will do whatever possible to spin us in the worst possible light. Look at the difference in the amount of coverage between the Foley thing and Harry Reid's cozy little real estate deal. It's infuriating :-(

I hesitate to reply understanding your fury over all this deplorable conduct.

It is so entirely outrageous but at the same time outside our ability to directly influence that it is really an enormous waste of time to stew and fulminate over.

Have faith my friend that these misdeeds will bear bitter fruit and just rewards for the miscreants that commit them. ( look how perfectly John Kerry was dealt out of the game in '04!... and it felt like this monster might actually be in the running.)

Your love for our homeland is admirable...as is your fire.

Interesting reaction, but what do you think they really think? Are they to the left of you and reacting to a "provocation" by a known right-winger? ("Provocation" is a favorite old Pravda chestnut.)

Or are they annoyed by Foley and his behavior, or annoyed by what the Dems are doing? These are leftists, as you describe them. Leftists have a very long history of complete toleration of sexual deviancy, going back to the Bolshevik Revolution and the Nazi bigwigs who used to use the Hitler Youth as their boy-toy seraglio. They may be nowhere near as square-rigged as you evidently hope they are.

I have found that non-homosexuals who rabidly support sexual anything-goes are often just as outraged if not more so over the slightest hint of criticism leveled at the "gay" agenda as practicing homosexuals.

I think a lot of leftists are just clawing the air right now, naturally with spittle flying.

Most of the people there know I'm conservative. I broached the topic on purpose, to gauge reaction. All I asked was "what do you think of this whole Foley thing, isn't it rather dangerous for Democrats to be attacking gays, a core Democrat constituency, on an ideological basis?" One of the bar patrons launched into a tirade about how "closet" gays are all perverts, and that Republicans were "protecting" a sexual predator and child molester, which was intended to upset me, but I just shook my head and said nothing. A couple of others made comments about not making statements stereotyping gays. Most just got wide-eyed or turned red, and would not comment on the matter, which is rather unusual there.
