Here’s the latest edition of The Bubble Genius Bob & Chez Show for your podcast-listening enjoyment.

And by the way… Chuck Johnson has sneaked back onto Twitter again. He’s now using the @GotNewsResearch account, and is up to his old tricks. Time for all LGF readers to report this guy for targeted abuse once again.

Chuck Johnson Threatens Everybody: “This Will Be the Summer of Justice!”

He’s coming for you

BEWARE, journalists! Chuck is COMING FOR YOU!

When even Daily Caller hack Betsy Rothstein mocks you openly, as she does in this interview with Chuck “Babycakes” Johnson (she calls him “Gingerhead” throughout), you know you’ve got no friends left even on the loony right: BEWARE! Charles Johnson Is on the Warpath | the Daily Caller.

He’s on the WARPATH and it’s hysterically funny!

THRILL as Chuck says he’d have huge scoops to break on the Hastert case, if only he weren’t being CENSORED!

Gingerhead: I would love to tell the world what I know about Hastert corruption but I am being censored so there’s really no point.

GUFFAW as Chuck says people are complaining that Twitter is BORING without him!

Gingerhead: People are already calling me and emailing me telling me that Twitter is a newly boring place now that I am gone.

GIGGLE as Chuck threatens to GO TO WAR with Twitter unless they restore his account!

Gingerhead: No, I want my Twitter account back because I did nothing wrong. And even fucking Slate realizes it. They’ll give me back my account or we will go to war. I didn’t pick this fight.

And last but not least, GASP in trepidation and foreboding as Chuck promises he’s “COMING FOR” everybody who criticized him!

Gingerhead: I’m coming for every single journalist that lied about me. This summer will go down as the summer of justice.


Gingerhead: And now I have to clean.

Oops! Did someone have a floor-pooping incident again?

Report: Dennis Hastert Paid to Conceal Sexual Misconduct

Republican family values
Politics • Views: 5,953

Wow. I mean, wowie. Former GOP House Speaker Dennis Hastert has reportedly been paying off a man for many years to conceal “sexual abuse” that dates back to his days as a high school wrestling coach.

Indicted former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was paying an individual from his past to conceal sexual misconduct, two federal law enforcement officials said Friday.

One of the officials, who would not speak publicly about the federal charges in Chicago, said “Individual A,” as the person is described in Thursday’s federal indictment, was a man and that the alleged misconduct was unrelated to Hastert’s tenure in Congress. The actions date to Hastert’s time as a Yorkville, Ill., high school wrestling coach and teacher, the official said.

“It goes back a long way, back to then,” the source said. “It has nothing to do with public corruption or a corruption scandal. Or to his time in office.” Thursday’s indictment described the misconduct “against Individual A” as having “occurred years earlier.”

Our Howler of the Day From Jim Hoft, Stupidest Man on the Internet

Indicted, convicted, what’s the difference?
Wingnuts • Views: 5,389

DERPThe fabled Stupidest Man on the Internet, Jim Hoft, seems to have been asleep for the past week or so, because last night he posted another one of his ridiculous attacks on Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, citing a Fox News guest who raised the horrifying specter of black people registering to vote so they can get into the jury pool for the trial of the officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

Registering to VOTE?! How dare they?

But the SMOTI, in his usual exceedingly dim fashion, posted a real howler of a headline: Report: Baltimore Activists Are Working to Stack Jury to Get Cops Indicted (VIDEO) | the Gateway Pundit.

Somebody should let Hoft know the officers were already indicted on May 21st. But wake him up gently, won’t you?

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby charged six city police officers with murder and manslaughter in the death of serial criminal Freddie Gray.

On Thursday FOX News contributor Attorney Mark Eiglarsh made the accusation that Marilyn Mosby knows there is a movement in Baltimore to get young blacks signed up to vote so they can stack the jury against the cops.

“Marilyn Mosby is watching… She knows that there are people, a movement now in Baltimore to get young men signed up to vote so they can go into the jury pool… Yes, it’s in motion… To get these officers.”

Overnight Jam: Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear, NPR Tiny Desk Concert

A mother and son duo, making great music
Music • Views: 9,245


There’s sweetness to Madisen Ward And The Mama Bear’s music that makes me smile, and then there’s so much more. I first saw the Kansas City mother-and-son duo perform last fall in Nashville’s Blue Room, a small, perfect-sounding stage at Third Man Records. The bluesy roots of the music suited the space, and the sound — with young Madisen Ward’s powerful, quivering voice backed by his mother Ruth — had a homespun feel. But there’s vitality to the pair’s music that kept it from feeling like a throwback or a gimmick. I immediately set out to get them to the Tiny Desk.

Now, eight months later, the Wards have released their first album, released the day we recorded this concert. Their heartfelt Tiny Desk set features some playful banter, while the songs themselves are memorable and singable even days after you hear them. In all, it’s a perfect introduction to a one-of-a-kind duo.

New Evidence Chuck Johnson May Have Been Behind the “Pretty Little Liar - Rape Hoax” Posters at Columbia

Chuck Johnson’s awful obsession
Wingnuts • Views: 15,875

During Commencement Week at Columbia University earlier this month, someone hung posters on the Columbia campus and on Broadway with a photo of activist Emma Sulkowicz and the words “Pretty Little Liar.” At the same time, someone created a Twitter account: @fakerape, and according to Anna Merlan’s article linked above, one of the first people to follow that account was infamous cyberstalker Chuck C. Johnson.

More than a few people suspected Johnson was behind this stunt, and there’s a substantial amount of evidence for that suspicion. For one thing, Chuck tweeted this ugly comment on May 1st:

For another, as we pointed out at LGF a week ago, Chuck Johnson recently registered the domain names and, listing his photographer friend Peter Duke (who took the photographs of Chuck stalking me at my former apartment) as the registrant organization. Chuck has made it very obvious that he’s obsessed with rape and smearing rape victims as “frauds,” with or without evidence. And he was particularly nasty and obsessive about Emma Sulkowicz.

Well, now there’s another interesting development that strongly suggests Chuck Johnson was indeed involved in this ugly stunt at Columbia: shortly after all of Johnson’s accounts were permanently suspended by Twitter, that @fakerape account set up to promote the posters was also suspended — raising the possibility that it was identified by Twitter as being either registered by Chuck Johnson himself, or by someone closely associated with him.

Obviously this isn’t absolute proof Chuck was involved, and he probably didn’t hang the posters himself even if he was. Note that he was in New York a few days before Columbia’s commencement, however, in time to prepare the posters and arrange to have someone hang them.

We may never know the truth, and Johnson will lie about it, of course, because that’s what he does. But there are an awful lot of coincidences here, and Johnson explicitly mentioned “planning something big.” So draw your own conclusions, dear readers.

UPDATE at 5/28/15 3:11:22 pm by Charles Johnson

And here’s even more circumstantial evidence that Chuck was behind the posters. Check out the design and the font used in this illustration from Johnson’s website:

Yes — that’s the exact same “stressed” typewriter font used in the “Pretty Little Liar” poster. (h/t: @rothschildmd.)

UPDATE at 5/28/15 3:25:49 pm by Charles Johnson

Chuck Johnson also used the same font in an illustration for a bogus post about Lester Holt:

UPDATE at 5/28/15 4:05:30 pm by Charles Johnson

In my opinion, the font evidence is conclusive. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of similar — but not identical — typewriter fonts out there; it’s very, very improbable that a random person unconnected to Johnson in any way would have picked exactly the same font for the Liar poster that Johnson had used at least twice before — and that definitely is the exact same font. You can tell by looking closely at the shapes of the letters used in common on all the illustrations.

UPDATE at 5/28/15 4:38:03 pm by Charles Johnson

Just to seal this one for good, here’s a better closeup of the “Pretty Little Liar” poster:

All the letters in common with Chuck Johnson’s Brian Williams illustration are exactly identical. There’s no doubt whatsoever; it’s the same font.

UPDATE at 5/28/15 5:35:16 pm by Charles Johnson

LGF reader “WhatEVs” put together this side-by-side comparison of the fonts — there’s really no doubt at all that these are the same typefaces.

Armed Biker Gang Plans Open-Carry “Draw Mohammed” Contest Outside Phoenix Mosque

Inspired by Pamela Geller to reach new heights of bigotry and hatred
Wingnuts • Views: 14,173


Here we go again. This time it’s a crazed anti-Muslim right winger in Phoenix, planning to hold a ‘Draw Muhammad’ Contest right in front of the Islamic Community Center.

The organizer of the event, Jon Ritzheimer, has held two protests in Phoenix since the Texas shootings. The chants and slogans at the protests are brash and hateful. Some supporters wear t-shirts that state, “(expletive) Islam.” Ritzheimer says he is using provocative methods to draw attention to a religion he believes at its core promotes violence.

“I want this to be about pushing out the truth about Islam,” said Jon Ritzheimer. “I’ve read the Koran three times… [Sure he has. – ed.] the ones flying the planes into the tower, those are Muslims following the book as it is written.”

A Facebook page dedicated to the event titled “Freedom of Speech Rally Round II” states: “This will be a PEACEFUL protest in front of the Islamic Community Center in Phoenix AZ… Everyone is encouraged to bring American flags and any message that you would like to send to the known acquaintances of the 2 gunmen.”

What this article at KPNX doesn’t mention is that Ritzheimer is actually leading a gang of bikers to stage this protest — and they intend to display lots of guns as well.

And to give you an idea of what kind of person Ritzheimer is, here’s a picture he proudly posted of himself at his Facebook page:

Scott Walker Tells Dana Loesch Mandatory Ultrasounds Are ‘Just a Cool Thing’

All the chicks dig them. They’re groovy.
Politics • Views: 19,438


Displaying an amazingly horrible tin ear and that casual misogyny for which the Republican Party has become well-known, Gov. Scott Walker, a probable presidential candidate, says that government-mandated ultrasound examinations for women seeking abortions are “just a cool thing.”

“I’ll give you an example. I’m pro-life, I’ve passed pro-life legislation. We defunded Planned Parenthood, we signed a law that requires an ultrasound. Which, the thing about that, the media tried to make that sound like that was a crazy idea. Most people I talk to, whether they’re pro-life or not, I find people all the time who’ll get out their iPhone and show me a picture of their grandkids’ ultrasound and how excited they are, so that’s a lovely thing. I think about my sons are 19 and 20, you know we still have their first ultrasound picture. It’s just a cool thing out there.

“We just knew if we signed that law, if we provided the information, that more people if they saw that unborn child would, would make a decision to protect and keep the life of that unborn child.”

This is a beautiful illustration of why it’s vitally important that Republicans be voted out of office in every part of American life. They’re completely lost in a fantasy world in which rolling back all the progress this country has made in women’s rights is “just a cool thing.”

It’s not. It’s not cool. It’s dangerously reactionary and stupid.

And Now, Santorum Enters the Clown Car

It’s going to be an all-creationist race on the GOP side
Politics • Views: 20,758

The GOP presidential race is looking a lot like that old circus routine in which dozens of clowns keep climbing out of a tiny car — but in reverse, because the Republicans in this case just keep climbing into the Clown Car. The latest buffoon to elbow his way in: Rick “Man On Dog” Santorum.

CABOT, Pa. — Rick Santorum, who was the runner-up in the Republican primary race four years ago but has never been considered his party’s heir apparent, is announcing his second presidential bid on Wednesday.

A former senator from Pennsylvania, who with his wife home-schooled several of their seven children, Mr. Santorum appeals primarily to social conservatives. He is facing heavy competition for those voters this year from rivals like Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and the retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

Santorum, of course, is yet another creationist; so far I don’t think there’s a single GOP candidate who isn’t.
