BREAKING, EXCLUSIVE: GotNewsDotCom’s Coercion Business Model

Aided and abetted by Twitter
Wingnuts • Views: 6,395
Confess, or my thousands of readers will know the truth!

Here’s how Award Winning Journalism works.

  • Target someone in the news, especially a victim of a crime or a well known person.
  • Get some dirt on them. If it's of a sexual nature, so much the better.
  • Tweet that you have dirt on Person X and will publish it unless X does something first.
  • Carefully word the tweet so as to include the general idea of the dirt.
  • Wait for a reaction.

In the old days, this was called coercion, which is, you know, kinda illegal and certainly unethical. Strangely though, Twitter lets users like @ChuckCJohnson get away with it.

Yesterday Johnson was in full swing, dealing with the burning issues of the latest news cycle: the “mattress girl” of Columbia University, the revelation that Josh Duggar as a teenager had molested five younger girls, and the release of’s users’ emails and private information.

In a 24-hour period. Chuck Johnson went after a Columbia university student, actor/comedian John Fugelsang, a government official, and former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee — all on Twitter and/or his website — threatening to reveal information about them. In some cases, the tweets revealed Johnson’s accusations.

In the case of the government employee, Johnson has already named him on his blog, without giving the person a chance to comment first.

This is Johnson’s SOP. Dig up dirt and fling it around like monkey poo, all to discredit the people he doesn’t like, to get people to click on his parody of a website. Twitter is part of his business model. Without Twitter, his marketing options would be severely limited.

One wonders if and when Twitter will respond to this shady use of their service.

Mike Huckabee Stands By Josh Duggar

Says those who have brought this forward have revealed their own “insensitive bloodthirst”
Wingnuts • Views: 12,234

Huckabee praised the Duggar family, who took over a year to bring the matter to law enforcement, saying that they “dealt with it and were honest and open about it with the victims and the authorities.”

He adds that Josh is a good person who “confessed his sins to those he harmed [and] sought help,” despite the fact that, according to reports, Josh did not receive counseling and was only sent to live with a family friend who worked in the home remodeling business.

The former Arkansas governor saved his anger for the people who have cited the case to point out the disingenuousness of the reality TV stars and the conservative political activists who hold them up as a paragon of moral virtue, or as Josh referred to his family, “the epitome of conservative values.” They also have a record of depicting LGBT people as threats to children.

Family Values, Duggar Style: Jim Bob Duggar Didn’t Report Son Josh’s Alleged Sex Offenses for More Than a Year

The executive director of the Family Research Council’s political wing is a molester
Wingnuts • Views: 19,006

Entertainment journal In Touch has the latest horrible news about the scandal breaking for the far right ultra-Christian incredibly fertile Duggar family: Bombshell Duggar Police Report: Jim Bob Duggar Didn’t Report Son Josh’s Alleged Sex Offenses for More Than a Year.

Josh DuggarJim Bob Duggar waited more than a year after his son, Josh, confessed to sexually molesting several female minors before contacting police, In Touch Magazine is reporting exclusively, based on information contained in the official police report.

What’s more, Jim Bob informed the elders of his church about Joshua’s actions and they waited three months before contacting authorities. The explosive new information is contained in a Springdale, Ark., police report obtained by In Touch magazine.

The report has been hidden since 2006 and was just obtained by the mag through a Freedom of information Act request. Jim Bob also refused to allow police to interview Josh when they opened a felony investigation in 2006. The Duggars star on TLC’s hit show 19 Kids and Counting.

In Touch magazine first broke the news of the Duggars’ underage sexual molestation scandal in this week’s magazine. (Note: Josh’s name is redacted from the police report but In Touch has confirmed the passages that refer to him.)

Other bombshells in the police report are: Josh Duggar was investigated for multiple sex offenses — including forcible fondling — against five minors. Some of the alleged offenses investigated were felonies. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were interviewed by the Springdale Police department on Dec. 12, 2006. The report says that James told police he was alerted in March, 2002 by a female minor that Josh — who turned 14-years-old that month — had been touching her breasts and genitals while she slept. This allegedly happened on multiple occasions. In 2006, Jim Bob told police that in July, 2002 Josh admitted to fondling a minor’s breasts while she slept. “James said that they disciplined (redacted, Josh) after this incident.” The family did not alert authorities.

Josh Duggar has now reportedly resigned from the Family Research Council, where he specialized in making statements like this: Flashback: Duggars Call LGBT People a Threat to Child Safety.


Duggar’s group, the Family Research Council, regularly paints the LGBT community as a precarious threat to children, and he and his family have participated in that rhetoric.

Last December, Duggar led a successful campaign to defeat a LGBT nondiscrimination measure in Fayetteville, Arkansas, which he said jeopardized the safety of children during an interview on the FRC radio program “Washington Watch.”

Disgusting people.

Is @ChuckCJohnson Planning to Monetize His Obsession With Rape?

A glimpse into the machinations of a sociopath

Last month, our deranged stalker pal Chuck C. Johnson posted a couple of comments on Twitter that caught a lot of people’s eyes:

LGF contributor goddamnedfrank wrote a post related to this, titled: Is Chuck C. Johnson Collaborating With a Criminal Revenge Porn Extortionist?

For the past few days, Johnson has been tweeting obsessively about Emma Sulkowicz, whose “Carry That Weight” project has brought a lot of attention to the subject of campus rape. And Johnson’s tweets are grotesque, as usual. Here are a few out of the dozens he’s posted, just to give you a sense of how insane he is:

He went on and on in this sociopathic vein, continuing for three days so far.

Chuck also admitted today that he’s been digging for personal information on Sulkowicz, obviously searching for a way to smear her even more:

And now, thanks to an anonymous tipster, I’ve discovered that just a few days after the tweets about extortion posted above, Chuck Johnson 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.

From this evidence, it seems that Johnson is apparently planning to monetize his rape obsession, possibly in a way that encourages extortion (judging from his weird questions). Stay tuned for further developments.

Stupidest Man on the Internet Starts the Week With a Huge Lie About Benghazi

Just a flat out lie from start to finish
Wingnuts • Views: 25,277

DERPOn this fine Monday morning, Jim Hoft, fabled Dumbest Man on the Internet (also known as the Stupidest Man on the Internet, or SMOTI), decided it was time to circulate a huge, blatant lie about Benghazi, with a screaming headline about a BREAKING REPORT SMOKING GUN! at Fox News that is completely false:

BREAKING REPORT=> SMOKING GUN! US Was Running Weapons Thru Benghazi to Syria | the Gateway Pundit

It’s a flat out lie, folks. The Fox News report is one of their usual nothing-burgers, trying to pump up yet another Benghazi story that contains nothing new or interesting, but it absolutely does not make the claim that the US was running weapons to Syria. Here’s how Dim Jim describes it in his typical semi-literate style:

FOX News confirmed today that the US ran guns from Benghazi to Syria before the attack on the US consulate on September 11, 2012.

The US Ambassador to Libya and three others were killed in the terrorist attack.

The Obama administration was running weapons to Syria.

FOX News reported Monday that the US was sending guns to Banias and Borj Islam, Syria before the Benghazi terrorist attack.

US Intelligence agencies were fully aware that weapons were moving from the terrorist stronghold in Libya to Syria before the attack that killed four Americans…
September 16, 2012 DIA Memo copied to the National Security Council, CIA, and others concluded the Benghazi terrorist attack was planned at least ten or more days in advance…

The memo also tied the attack to 9-11… No discussion of a demonstration or anti-Mohammad video.

US officials were aware that weapons were being shipped to Syria by the Port of Benghazi.

The US was in fact running guns from Benghazi to Syria when the annex and consulate were attacked.

Senator Rand Paul questioned Hillary Clinton about this gun running program back in January 2013 during her testimony on the Benghazi terrorist attack.

Hillary Clinton said she did not know about the program while testifying under oath.


Rand Paul accused the Obama administration in January 2013 of running guns to Syrian rebels.
Rand Paul was right.

No, Jim, Rand Paul was not right, and Hillary Clinton said she didn’t know about “the program” because there was no “program.”

Hoft even quoted the line that debunks his dishonest post:

US officials were aware that weapons were being shipped to Syria by the Port of Benghazi.

That’s what the Fox report says; that US officials were aware that weapons were being shipped from Libya to Syria. It does not say the US was shipping those weapons — and in fact, the report actually quotes a CIA official who specifically says the US was NOT involved in shipping those weapons.

So Fox News didn’t “confirm” this at all; Jim Hoft deliberately misrepresented this report. Please spread the word and retweet this post, to push back against yet another attempted lie by this incredibly dishonest right wing hack.

Here’s the video clip from Fox, so you can see for yourself:


GOHMERT! A 5-Year Old Hate Crime Law Will Make Christianity Illegal

They’re coming for Christians any day now
Wingnuts • Views: 23,742


Louie Gohmert, dumbest man in Congress, went on the radio show of right wing Florida loon Joyce Kaufman yesterday to advocate for Pamela Geller’s right to spew hatred at Muslims, and along the way he stopped to warn the swivel-eyed audience that the 2010 Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act is going to lead to Christians being persecuted for hate speech.

In the five years since the passage of the law, not a single Christian has been prosecuted under it for quoting the Bible, but this never stops the Gohmerts from using it to drum up some fear in the fanatical wingnut base, bless their little hearts.

Ben Carson Said God Helped Him Ace His Chemistry Exam at Yale

Snake oil
Wingnuts • Views: 22,982

You may think you know how crazy young Earth creationist Dr. Ben Carson is, but you probably don’t know that he actually thinks he’s been contacted by God Himself, in a dream.

Dr. Ben Carson, retired pediatric neurosurgeon and recently announced Republican presidential candidate, gave a moving personal speech at the National Day of Prayer event in Washington, D.C., May 7.

One key story he shared was of a prophetic dream that changed the course of his life while he was a pre-med student at Yale.

Failing his chemistry course, a prerequisite for medical school, he had one last opportunity to pull off a passing grade. But the night before his final exam, still not comprehending the material, he cried out to God for a prophetic move.

“‘Lord, medicine is the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do,’” Carson recounted his prayer at the breakfast. “‘I thought that was what You wanted from me. And yet, it looks like I’m going to fail chemistry and I’m not going to go to medical school.

“And I said, ‘So would You please tell me what it is You really want me to do. Or, alternatively and preferably, work a miracle,’” he continued, eliciting chuckles from the audience.

After praying, Carson had picked up his Chemistry textbook, determined to learn the whole course overnight. But his efforts were futile, and he fell asleep.

His slumber, however, bore more fruit than his attempts at all-night cramming ever could. While he slept, God answered Carson’s prayers with a prophetic dream.

“I was in this large auditorium,” Carson described the dream. “Just me, and a nebulous figure working out chemistry problems.”

When he awoke early the next morning, the dream was fresh and vivid in his mind as he looked through his textbook.

“When I went to take the test the next morning, it was like The Twilight Zone,” Carson said. “I opened that [test] book and I recognized the first problem; it was one of the ones I’d dreamed about. And the next, and the next, and the next.”

“I aced the exam,” he said to rousing applause.

Defunct Furniture Store Leaves Behind Hateful Message for Area “Commies”

Hard to believe this guy couldn’t stay in business!
Wingnuts • Views: 20,900

You will probably be aware that Kansas is among the reddest of red states. There are, however, exceptions, to every rule. Lawrence is home to the large University of Kansas and is a significant liberal enclave in the state.

Recently, the owner of a Lawrence furniture store in operation since 1978 closed his doors for good. He was nice enough to leave a message on a truck parked in front of his former shop for the community, which naturally includes many of his former customers:

No idea what the extra stars on the flag represent!

The “Town Talk” online blog from the Lawrence Journal-World newspaper identifies the departing shop owner as Robert “Bob” Fyfe. While online reviews are always to be taken with a grain of salt, a quick search shows a pattern of behavior:

I have nothing good to say about this place or my experience there - Yelp 2010

I will absolutely never shop there again.For me it all comes down to how unbelievably rude “Bob” the owner was to my wife and I. - Pissed Consumer 2014

I was having a friendly conversation with an associate about K-State and KU. Bob suddenly chimed in, very loudly, saying that he doesn’t like Lawrence or KU because Lawrence “has the highest percentage of [black] people in the state”. He went on a rant about how KU and Lawrence are trying to attract [black] people and how disgusting that is. I was shocked to say the least. - Pissed Consumer 2014

I’d just bought a bed from him, and while he was ringing up my order, he started ranting about black people (he used the n word) ruining Kansas, esp Lawrence. WTF? Did he think that a white customer would welcome his comments? - Pissed Consumer 2015

It truly is a pity that “commies” were able to drive this responsible business owner from the community!

Ben Carson Says the Dred Scott Decision Allows the President to Ignore SCOTUS on Gay Marriage

Wingnuts • Views: 19,447

This is why young Earth creationist Ben Carson will never be President of the United States; his grasp of history and government is… tenuous, to say the least: Ben Carson Invokes Dred Scott Decision as Precedent for Ignoring Supreme Court Rulings.

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson raised eyebrows last week when he told Newsmax that a potential Supreme Court ruling to legalize same-sex marriage across the country would not have to be implemented, because “the laws of the land come from the legislative branch.”

It’s not a commonly held opinion, given that the high court has long asserted the right to invalidate laws it deems unconstitutional, and no other presidential candidate has suggested that the court’s ultimate ruling on same-sex marriage could be ignored.

During a Republican gathering Saturday in Greenville, S.C., Bloomberg asked Carson to explain his assertion.

“What I would really love to see, as the Constitution states, civil matters being taken care of in the state and the states.”

Ben Carson

“Probably the best thing to do is go back and read about the Dred Scott case,” Carson responded, referring to the 1857 case in which the Supreme Court validated slavery; today it is widely viewed as the worst ruling in the Court’s history. “And as you know, President Lincoln wasn’t too much in favor of that. And his policies indicated that. Clearly it created a lot of division. We ended up fighting a war over it but in the long run it was the right thing to do.”
