    The State (Columbia SC) ^ | March 27, 2018 08:26 AM | Bristow Marchant
    This clown wants your vote for Congress. In this case, that isnt a negative description. Steve Lough, a candidate for Congress in South Carolinas 5th District, is a former professional clown for the Ringling Brothers circus. Lough is leaning into his unusual resume, appearing in clown makeup in a promotional photo and registering the domain name ClownForCongress.com. They joke that the president and Congress are all clowns, Lough said in announcing his candidacy. Well, in my professional opinion, they are the worst clowns Ive ever seen. A Democrat, Lough says he wants to use his clowning to promote universal access...

    As you file your taxes, try not to think too hard about the revelation that your hard-earned money is helping someone achieve their dream of becoming a clown. Because, apparently becoming a clown requires going to college, and going to college requires taxpayers footing the bill. Next time you're at the circus, demand a "thank you" from a clown.CNS News provides more information about the bad news regarding the gross misuse of our taxes: "The federal government is funding a clown school located in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosis San Francisco-based congressional district that has classes and workshops on...
  • All hat? Rep. Frederica Wilson is a new Halloween costume choice

    10/28/2017 8:24:41 AM PDT · by deplorableindc · 18 replies
    People of all political persuasions agree: Rep. Frederica Wilson, the freshly famous Florida Democrat who clashed with President Trump, has a unique look. Now, some people plan to replicate it on Halloween. Its not a complicated costume to pull off, requiring little more than a professional outfit topped with a colorful cowboy hat covered in sequins. And experts say dressing as the politician is not necessarily a bad idea. I cant speak to individual motivations in this specific instance, but people have been dressing up as political figures since the days in which those figures were kings and queens instead...

    CNNs Chris Cuomo lost his cool on live T.V. after OMB Director Mick Mulvaney said that CNN was spreading false information about President Trumps response to the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico. Mulvaney said that mainstream media like CNN are purposely choosing to only show the bad stuff rather than report on all of the efforts by the Trump administration to help the people in Puerto Rico who are suffering. Heres a flashback to the theatrical fake news CNN was pumping out CNN traveled to Puerto Rico and interviewed San Juan Mayor Cruz wearing a help us we are dying...

    Political associates of Al Franken say they believe the Minnesota senator could be talked into running for the White House if he believes he's the Democrat best positioned to defeat President Trump. But they say Franken would need to be convinced, and argue that the former "Saturday Night Live" star would be reluctant to enter a battle with dozens of other Democrats in what's increasingly expected to be a wide-open race for party's nomination. "He's not the type of person to crawl over everyone's dead carcasses to get to the White House," said R.T. Rybak, the former mayor of Minneapolis...

    Promoting his one-man anti-Trump Broadway show on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers early Friday morning, left-wing activist Michael Moore admitted the reality of the President’s 2016 election victory: “You have to say, ‘Donald Trump outsmarted us all.’ And then deal with the throw-up that’s in your mouth....It’s the truth.”      Earlier in the exchange, Meyers promoted: “...one of the things in your show is the 12-step program for helping people sort of deal with this Trump presidency. And you’ve just added a another step.” Moore replied: “Yes, yes. The new step, I just added it last night, was...

  • Schiff views docs at WH, calls for them to be given to committee

    The House Intelligence Committee's top Democrat confirmed Friday evening that he was "presented" the same information at the White House that was given to the panel's chairman last week. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said he viewed materials at the White House with his staff director that were presented as "precisely the same materials" given to Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) last week. "While I cannot discuss the content of the documents, if the White House had any concern over these materials, they should have been shared with the full committees in the first place as a part of our ordinary oversight...

    Sometimes truth really is the best defense. All but two Democrats sided with J Street over Israel and voted against the confirmation of Ambassador Friedman. Republicans stood with the Jewish pro-Israel community. J Street lost. Jews and supporters of Israel won. Of the Senate Dems who spoke against Friedman, all but one were recipients of sizable amounts of J Street money. J Street is the anti-Israel pressure group set up by George Soros. Schatz, Udall, Van Hollen and Leahy had all gotten cash from J Street. Al Franken had not. But he had a better grievance against Ambassador Friedman. "Mr....

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Hillary Clintons former running mate, says Democrats are so excited that the American public is energized to speak out against the abuses of this administration, and he believes it will work to their advantage. He pointed to recent rallies in support of health care, in support of women, and against President Trumps executive orders on immigration, saying Democrats must take advantage of the tremendous public outcry. What weve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box; and now theres the momentum to...

    Jeb Bush said Tuesday he hopes incoming first lady Melania Trump takes her husbands cellphone away so he can focus on leading the country. The former Florida governor and GOP rival to Donald Trump quipped during a lecture at the William Waldon Cameron Forum in Texas that he hopes "Melania steals his phone," noting the president-elect has been known for tweeting at odd hours of the night. Bush said Tuesday he hopes the president-elect is successful. The two famously sparred during the 2016 Republican presidential primary debates and on the campaign trail before Bush dropped out in February. Others have...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) let slip a terrifying reality when it comes to the power of our nation's president over "executive branch" agencies like the CIA. In an interview Tuesday with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, Schumer said President-elect Donald Trump is "being really dumb" by taking on the intelligence community because if he does "they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you." Just let that soak in for a minute. One of the most powerful senators just admitted that it is "stupid" for a president to oppose the intelligence community, which he is in charge of,...

    An airstrike on Thursday has ended the life of the 24-year-old Anas al-Basha, who was known as Aleppos clown. Basha, who was also a civil rights activist, chose to remain in the divided Aleppo to work with children and mitigate their traumas in the conflict-torn, northwestern Syrian city. The activists corpse was found buried under the rubble with the hat and makeup he wore in his role as a clown, in the eastern part of the city, which was held by the rebels. After heavy airstrikes, the Syrian regime has regained on Sunday more than half of Aleppo. His death...
