Republican Jewish Coalition Denounces Rep. Matt Gaetz for Citing Them to Defend Holocaust Denier Chuck C. Johnson

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, seen in an appearance on the far right InfoWars conspiracy outlet

As we reported yesterday, Florida Republican representative Matt Gaetz is continuing to defend white supremacist Holocaust denier Chuck C. Johnson (who is NOT ME), after inviting him to Donald Trump’s State of the Union address last week.

Speaking to NewsRadio 1620, Gaetz cited the Republican Jewish Coalition to defend Johnson, saying their founder was going to release a statement that Johnson was not a Holocaust denier.

But the RJC was not pleased to have Gaetz try to use them to defend this vile individual, and now they’ve released a statement, published in the Tampa Bay Times by Adam C. Smith today:

Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition said he did not appreciate Gaetz citing the RJC to defend Johnson’s views about the Holocaust:

“This organization is deeply troubled by the comments from Charles C. Johnson, and it is incredibly important for the congressman to acknowledge he is a Holocaust denier and has extensive writings that attest to that and that it was wrong to bring him to the State of the Union,” Brooks said. “We are are deeply troubled by any inference that our organization believes otherwise.”

We should also point out that when Gaetz made his claim about the RJC yesterday, he was ignoring a tweet directed at him by the RJC last Friday, making it quite clear that they were not going to defend Johnson.

…because of course this motherfucker would:

After approving Medicaid work requirements, Trump’s HHS aims for lifetime coverage limits.

Washington

After allowing states to impose work requirements for Medicaid enrollees, the Trump administration is now pondering lifetime limits on adults’ access to coverage.

Capping health care benefits — like federal welfare benefits — would be a first for Medicaid, the joint state-and-federal health plan for low-income and disabled Americans.

If approved, the dramatic policy change would recast government-subsidized health coverage as temporary assistance by placing a limit on the number of months adults have access to Medicaid benefits.

The move would continue the Trump administration’s push to inject conservative policies into the Medicaid program through the use of federal waivers, which allow states more flexibility to create policies designed to promote personal and financial responsibility among enrollees.

However, advocates say capping Medicaid benefits would amount to a massive breach of the nation’s social safety net designed to protect children, the elderly and the impoverished.

Trump’s America, where life literally has a price.

Ok, that’s not fair…GOP’s America, since they’ve been after this shit for decades themselves. And now, they just might get it.

“…It’s unclear if any of Verma’s reforms in Indiana have had the desired effect. The state still sits near the bottom of all states in several outcomes, and drug deaths and infant mortality have still risen over the past year. The program has improved reimbursement for physicians and thus increased access to providers for Medicaid enrollees, but its scheme requiring enrollees to contribute to a health savings account and sometimes pay premiums has cost thousands of people their coverage. It also might not even be cheaper for the state than traditional Medicaid, despite implementing restrictions on enrollees designed to reduce costs.”

So let’s be clear that this is the second time that Trump is on record stating that he wants a shutdown. This is why Democrats aren’t to blame when the government is shut down while Trump is in office.

That won’t stop him, Fox, and the GOP from blaming them though.

Yay! While watching SpaceX launch I got a text message from the Ohio Democratic Party.

BREAKING. Today the Ohio Legislature voted on a proposal to reform congressional redistricting and give Ohioans FAIR districts. You did this. (etc)

Here is a part of an article from Cincinnati. com explaining what happened and what is going to be happening next. The Columbus Dispatch article isn’t up yet (so far) probably trying to figure out why this is a bad thing. Or, they all went out to the local to drink their sorrows. This is going to hurt the Ohio GOP. A good thing.

Cincinnati.com -
Everyone complains about congressional gerrymandering. Ohio just did something about it.

Pressured by a coalition of good government groups, called Fair Districts = Fair Elections, aiming for a fall ballot initiative, lawmakers embarked on months of negotiations, which at times, appeared to have fallen apart.

Facing a Wednesday deadline to get their plan before voters, lawmakers met on Super Bowl Sunday.

Huddled in a small room at a community action center in downtown Akron were Sen. Matt Huffman, Sen. Vernon Sykes, Senate President Larry Obhof, Senate Minority Leader Yuko, Senate Democrats’ lawyer Bethany Sanders and Senate Republicans’ budget director Ray DiRossi.

As the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles battled back and forth, so did Republicans and Democrats during a five-hour meeting. A representative from Fair Districts = Fair Elections texted opinions while watching the game elsewhere.

“What a great way to spend Super Bowl Sunday,” Huffman remarked.

What emerged, would become a bipartisan compromise on how to draw lines in Ohio.

The final version, which passed the Ohio Senate 31-0 Monday and the Ohio House 83-10 Tuesday, was hailed as a “bipartisan compromise.” Rep. Alicia Reece, D-Roselawn, was one of the “no” votes, saying she wanted the right to vote enshrined in the state constitution, too.

To take effect, voters must approve the plan in May.

Here’s how the first-of-its-kind map-drawing would work:

After the U.S. Census, Ohio lawmakers would create a map, which would last for 10 years. It would need approval from three-fifths of members and one-half of the minority party’s members to take effect.

If they can’t agree, a seven-member redistricting commission would create a 10-year map. That group includes the governor, auditor, secretary of state and four lawmakers - two of whom would come from the minority party. A majority of the commission and at least two members of the minority party would need to agree on a map for it to take effect.

If the commission can’t agree, state lawmakers would have another crack at creating a 10-year map. It would need approval from three-fifths of members and one-third of the minority party’s members to take effect.

If that fails, lawmakers in the majority party could draw a map that lasts four years without support from the minority party. That map cannot unduly favor one party; excessively split counties, townships or municipalities or draw districts that are not compact. The majority must explain how they met these three goals.

Any map drawn by lawmakers could be vetoed by the governor or brought to a vote by the public through a referendum. Of Ohio’s 88 counties, 65 would not be split, 18 would be split just once and five - the state’s most populous counties - could be split twice

“…There is no polite way to put this, but since Peterson claims that “If you worry about hurting people’s feelings and disturbing the social structure, you’re not going to put your ideas forward,” I’m just going to say it: Spend half an hour on his website, sit through a few of his interminable videos, and you realize that what he has going for him, the niche he has found—he never seems to say “know” where he could instead say “cognizant of”—is that Jordan Peterson is the stupid man’s smart person.
……
Watching his videos, it’s easy to conclude that Dr. Jordan Eggman exhibits the first documented case of the male-cry voice. Maybe he wouldn’t need to repeat himself quite so much, maybe he’d be more convincing when explaining things like men are helpless before “crazy women” and “harpies” because it’s not socially acceptable for men to hit women and that this is “undermining the masculine power of the culture” in a way that will prove “fatal” if he didn’t sound quite so much like Gwyneth Paltrow accepting her Oscar for Shakespeare in Love.”

I bet he has an Asian fetish which is causing him internal conflicts with his Nazi leanings.

Or he could just be racist. I assume if he had an Asian fetish, he would have asked her out or something along those terms. If he wanted to know her ethnic background, he could have approached her in a less confrontational manner. Trump has given racists a pass to come out from under their rocks and we’ve seen loads of similar videos since his rise in politics.

I still read Dilbert once in a while (The change to a lanyard from the upward tie was sensible) , the weird thing is that it still has the same humour as it did, which gives the feeling that the Scott’s dubious support of the dubious is half-hearted. In one of the collection books, it was mentioned that he felt embarrassed by an implied snack thief was coloured dark skinned for a Sunday strip, when he had no intention of making them so. If was willing to admit that kind of stuff then, then goes and support these Ass-clowns, it does give the impression he does it for the attention. ‘

IMO Comey wanted the Republican to win vs. Hillary Clinton, no matter who that Republican was. Later on, he was surprised that Trump was exactly as shitty as every sensible person was saying before the election.

That surprise comes from years of willful blindness as to what the Republican party has been degenerating into ever since 1964.

He told CJR reporter Lyz Lenz,”Texans don’t care about politics.” He included specific examples of stories he was not interested in covering, including those on transgender bathrooms. Readers all over the state were dismayed by Taliaferro’s remark, including former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who commented: “And another one bites the dust.”

It probably goes further back, but McConnell’s statement in 2010 when he said their number one priority was making Obama a one term president is the tipping point. They all bought in and then he won re-election. They could have relented, and done a “will of the people” sort of thing, instead they doubled down.

By 2016, they were so far gone that none of them who opposed Trump could come out in support of Clinton. There was no “I didn’t leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left me” moment. I don’t know if that would have changed the outcome, but I do suspect that if people like Flake and Corker and the others had gone through spinal replacement surgery before the election, that maybe, just maybe, we could have avoided this.

The launch was otherwise an astounding success so it’s weird that an hour and a half later they still aren’t saying what the fate of the center booster was.

Jimmy Kimmel was on Pod Save America this week, they did a live show over the weekend. He said that everyone should be required to take an IQ test and the number should be in their twitter handle. While not a big fan of IQ tests, I can get behind this policy.

From the link:

“It was a very unusual role,” McGinn says. “It was my job to do surveys and focus groups globally to understand why people like Mark Zuckerberg, whether they think they can trust him, and whether they’ve even heard of him. That’s especially important outside of the United States.”

why people like Mark Zuckerberg

His primary was to then find those people.

On Display Determination exercises in the Eastern Med, we worked as a combined force with the Italians against a Spanish opposition force. When it came to the usual trading sessions, we found that an Italian MRE contained a daily brandy ration. The Spanish had horsemeat and squid in ink.

I speed going to Crooks and Liars a long time ago because they used to post a lot of bullshit. When Suzy Madrack was there she’d post something and a few hours later post something completely different; a complete 180 from what she originally posted.

I met my husband there. We both used to go there all the time. Now, neither of us does. They might have changed (and both of us like Karoli and David Neiwart, when he was there), but they lost their way badly.

Well, I would say 100m isn’t very much. That impact at that distance (roughly an American football field) would be sufficient, I would think.

He wanted a military parade at his inauguration too. This dictator in waiting and his complicit party just won’t stop trying to turn us into a dictatorship. He and his party have to be demolished.

310 or so MPH. Yikes. Came in a little hot.

I wonder if it lost control of it’s landing rockets which would also make the last maneuvers difficult too.

Still amazing what they are doing.

They crashed their first boosters too, and then got that fixed up. Wouldn’t surprise me if they get the center section landing done in the next two launches.

Yes, space clutter. Just expanding it to Mars. I love the science, but space clutter is a problem we have in earth orbit now. What scientific hardware is aboard the vehicle? I hadn’t heard of what it will be doing in orbit other than giving the next mission something to worry about hitting upon entry.
