Sen. Rand Paul Meets With Rep. Dana Rohrabacher - and Holocaust Denier Chuck C. Johnson

Rohrabacher brings a Holocaust denier with him to Sen. Paul’s office

White supremacist Chuck C. Johnson (L), Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R)

I really don’t like linking to the Daily Caller because frankly, it’s a sewer, but they’re the only place that’s reported this story so far. If you click through to read, try not to get any on you.

California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher met last week with Kentucky Senator Rand Paul to pitch his proposal to get Wikileaks founder Julian Assange pardoned — and Rohrabacher brought along his white supremacist, Holocaust-denying little buddy, Chuck C. Johnson.

Republican California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher met with Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul last Thursday and discussed leveraging Paul’s close relationship with President Donald Trump to let the president know that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is willing to divulge information about the source of leaked emails.

“Rand Paul says the president calls him every now and then. I wanted to make sure that when [Trump] calls him that [Paul] knew enough about the Julian Assange offer that I found something of value for the president to look at,” Rohrabacher told TheDC.

Sen. Paul’s office declined to comment. Rohrabacher said that Paul was joined by a few of his staffers, and that the California congressman brought along top aide Paul Behrends and conservative journalist Charles C. Johnson.

“Conservative journalist” is about the most misleading way possible to describe this vile human being. Chuck C. Johnson is a notorious white supremacist who recently came out as a Holocaust denier in an “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit, in a far right racist group that has now been deleted — but Chuck’s ugly comments are still saved at archive.is:

justacolyte:
what are your thoughts on the Holocaust, WW2, and the JQ [JQ = “Jewish Question” – ed.] in general?

ChuckCJohnson:
I do not and never have believed the six million figure. I think the Red Cross numbers of 250,000 dead in the camps from typhus are more realistic. I think the Allied bombing of Germany was a ware crime. I agree with David Cole about Auschwitz and the gas chambers not being real. I read the German War (highly recommend), Bloodlands, Mein Kampf, and all of David Irving. I’m more or less of the view that the war was an outgrowth of the efforts of communism to spread itself throughout the world. I also believe that the fears of German extermination were not misplaced, especially in light of the Ukrainian famine. But I support Israel as a Jewish state and Zionism as a concept. I’m pro-ethno state, generally. I understand why and how Hitler rose to power but think too much of our focus on World War II is spent trying to understand Hitler and not enough is spent trying to understand Weimar. Mecius Moldbug, aka Curtis Yarvin, is right. America is a communist country.

Did Rand Paul know what kind of hateful individual he allowed into his office? It really only takes a few minutes to Google Chuck C. Johnson’s long history of racism, sexism and the kind of blatant hate speech that got him permanently banned from Twitter and suspended multiple times from Facebook.

What are the odds Trump hasn’t been told where/how those special forces troops died because it would come out as n*****, and not Niger? 100%?

The silence from the WH and GOP leaders is deafening.

They’ll trot out Benghazi (and right wingers spew that nonsense daily), but ignore the death of US troops on Trump’s watch that goes unremarked upon for days.

Who knows about this in the WH? Why no statements? Where’s the press release?

The absence of all that is stunning, and any other president who failed to remark on deaths of US troops in the line of duty would be excoriated.

With Trump, it’s all falling into the background noise because there’s so much fail, the media has omitted what would otherwise be huge stories.

Sorry for your loss.

It was actually described without being named in the Biblical story. After the tenth plague, the Plague of the Firstborn, the Israelites fled Egypt. Pharaoh pursued with his army. After the crossing of the Red Sea, Pharaoh led his army directly into the lake bed without even stopping to think about what a capricious God would possibly have in mind after His people had crossed safely. Thus was born the eleventh plague, the Plague of Dumbass.

Another lone wolf white man:

he man authorities say left an explosive device at Asheville Regional Airport on Friday morning that contained ammonium nitrate and fuel oil said he was preparing to “fight a war on U.S. soil,” according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court.

The suspect, Michael Christopher Estes, had his first appearance in federal court Tuesday morning. He is charged with attempted malicious use of explosive materials and unlawful possession of explosive materials in an airport.

Video footage from the airport showed an individual walking onto airport grounds at 12:39 a.m. on Oct. 6. He was wearing black clothing and a black cap and carrying a bag.

“Based on a review of the video, the individual walked near the entrance to the terminal, went out of sight momentarily, and was then seen departing the area without the bag,” the complaint states.

We’ve put a shitpot of money into developing “clean coal” technology. It can be done, but it’s extraordinarily expensive, and requires the capture and repurposing of the generated CO2.

It’s not economically feasible, given the price of natural gas. Coal is just a filthy fuel, full stop. We should be pushing coal fired plants to retool for natural gas generation. We’d meet the CPP goals in 10 years, easy.

Instead of pouring money into the fever dream of “clean coal”, we should be pouring money into getting natural gas replaced with thorium cycle nuclear generation. Plentiful, no glow in the dark rod waste, no fissionable or fusible waste products, no meltdowns, &c.

It’s not economically feasible, given the price of natural gas. Coal is just a filthy fuel, full stop. We should be pushing coal fired plants to retool for natural gas generation. We’d meet the CPP goals in 10 years, easy.

Instead of pouring money into the fever dream of “clean coal”, we should be pouring money into getting natural gas replaced with thorium cycle nuclear generation. Plentiful, no glow in the dark rod waste, no fissionable or fusible waste products, no meltdowns, &c.

That’s my point exactly. Yes, we have technology that can produce “clean coal,” but it’s so ridiculously expensive that it’s never going to happen in the real world at scale. And when people like Trump pretend it already exists they’re simply lying.

I think the point is coming when Trump so overuses Twitter that it will be routinely ignored out of hand by the media heavyweights as background noise.

“He tweeted that? Meh.”

“But it’s a lie! We have to report it!”

“It’s all lies. It’s not news any more. It’s just static vomited by a crazy man.”

Now here’s a very scary story. The Feds are using the reasoning that, since a local coffee shop that was robbed used coffee beans imported from out state, then a Federal crime was committed since the coffee beans were transported across state lines.

This is one hell of a slippery slope. Probably more than 98% of Alaska goods are brought in from out state. Therefore, just about any theft crime could be upgraded into Federal charges.

Why did the feds team with Alaska prosecutors against robbery suspects? Coffee beans.

McCain and Cardin sent a letter to Trump reminding him of the deadline on Sept. 29.

Also on September 29, Trump issued a memorandum delegating most of the responsibilities of making the decisions outlined in the bill to members of the Cabinet. Trump passed the authority to determine who counted as military or intelligence to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

You’re missing a key fact, namely that the market hit its low point, around 6,600, a few weeks after Obama’s inauguration. Thus the subsequent gains during the rest of his administration are even more impressive, and the gains so far under Trump less so.

Smith, who has an intellectual disability, would pull 18-hour shifts six days a week, sometimes without breaks, his attorneys said in the suit. He was hit with a frying pan, burned with grease-covered tongs and beaten with butcher knives, belt buckles and fists “while being called the N-word repeatedly,” the lawyers alleged.

And he got paid less than $3,000 yearly, they said.

“When you were a baby, there were these people who had the power to stop a madman from destroying the USA — it was a country back then — and the world. They did nothing, because they were afraid they would lose the next election. Those where when we people got to decide who would represent us in government. So, they did nothing, and the madman went ahead with his crazy plans, and here we are talking about it around this campfire. I could show you more, but we don’t have computers now.
