Have you been injured?

Not to mention his other specialty of Russian money laundering. (We don’t know that yet, but what do you think the odds are?)

When you have three clients, and two say they don’t pay you, how else do you survive in New York?

Sometimes, we reach a moment of clarity

From the Washington Post:

President Trump’s personal attorney Michael D. Cohen did work for Fox News commentator Sean Hannity in the past year, one of just three legal clients Cohen represented after leaving his post as a counsel for Trump’s private company in early 2017, his attorney told a federal judge Monday.

Cohen’s work for Hannity was revealed during a court hearing in Manhattan on Monday and confirmed by a source familiar with the relationship. Cohen also did legal work for the president and GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy in the past year, his attorney told the court.

Michael Cohen had three clients. A badly tanned buffoon, a GOP impregnating sleeze and Sean Hannity. So, now you know why a lying sack of shit is going out of his way to defend Spanky McPornfucke. I wonder what the ocher pussygrabber’s got on him?

Signs from the March for Our Lives

Hundreds of thousands of people, mostly kids, participated Saturday in the March for Our Lives. Below is the main stage after the event. It was impossible to get to it once the event began:
And here are the signs.

This was an official sign from the District of Columbia. It’s sad they had to post it, but there’s always some gun nut who thinks he has the right to terrorize people:

The following is something I’ve been saying for months:

People are sick of the “thoughts and prayers” response from politicians who prostitute themselves for the NRA …

Because people really know what the NRA stands for.

And the people at the march kept the focus on kids. Practically all of the speakers talked about how guns have affected their lives, from Parkland high school students, to kids in Washington, D.C., who have lost siblings to gun violence or who have stared down the barrel of a gun thinking it was going to be their last second alive.

There was also a reminder of when we had a compassionate, responsible, intelligent and uncorruptable leader in the White House not that long ago:

And there was this friendly reminder from a long departed neighbor:

I arrived at the march a little late and had to leave early because of the crush of the crowd, but while I was there, none of the speakers gave a roll call for the congressional whores who take NRA money in exchange for kids lives. Perhaps someone did do it, but if not, here’s a reminder:

Nazis: a Red State love story

This has everything: Trailer parks, Nazis and lust in the heartland. It even has a tie in to a certain krafty, krimson krank:

The co-founders of an Indiana-based white nationalist party – Matthew Heimbach and David Parrott – got into a fight Tuesday at a Paoli trailer park after Parrott confronted his wife and Heimbach over an affair, according to a police report. 

Heimbach, the 26-year-old co-founder of the Traditionalist Worker Party, was arrested and charged with battery and domestic battery Tuesday by Paoli police. He was freed on $1,000 bond. 

The incident could have additional legal ramifications for Heimbach, who pled guilty in July to physically harassing a woman during a rally in Louisville for Donald Trump.

District Court Judge Stephanie Pearce Burke waived 90 days of jail time on the condition he not re-offend within two years.  

Heimbach is scheduled for a review of the Louisville case this year. He did not return a phone call to his cellphone or a text message seeking comment. 

David Parrott, the 35-year-old co-founder and spokesman of the white nationalist group, called Paoli police from a Walmart parking lot at 1 a.m. Tuesday and said he’d been assaulted by his wife, Jessica Parrott, 31, and Heimbach, according to a police report obtained by Courier Journal. 

David Parrott claims his wife and Heimbach were having an affair, according to a police report. So he and Heimbach’s wife — who is Parrott’s former stepdaughter from another marriage — went to Parrott’s trailer around midnight to see if a tryst was taking place.

They snuck up on the trailer, where Parrott climbed up on a box to peer through a window, police said. But the box broke, and Parrott ran to the front door to confront Heimbach. 

“I demanded that they leave my property and he refused,” David Parrott said.

The two men grappled and Heimbach choked Parrott several times, causing him to lose consciousness, according to the police report. When he came to, Parrott drove to Walmart to call police. 

When police arrived at the trailer, Heimbach told his wife to send the police away and “tell them everything was fine,” the report said.

“My husband asked me to dismiss the police at my door,” a signed statement from Heimbach’s wife said. “I refused, he kicked the wall, and then grabbed my cheeks making them bleed …”

The incident occurred in front of the Heimbachs’ two children, a 2-year-old and a 7-month-old, according to the police report.

Parrott said Heimbach’s wife was in “immediate danger” because she had a recording of Heimbach and Parrott’s wife, according to a police report. 

After the confrontation, Parrott resigned from the Traditionalist Worker Party, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. 

“I’m done. I’m out,” Parrott told the Southern Poverty Law Center on Tuesday. “SPLC has won. Matt Parrott is out of the game. Y’all have a nice life.”  

Every person involved in the Paoli incident identified their professions as “White Nationalists” in the police report. 

No reference to guns and pickup trucks but you just know they had to be somewhere in this scenario. But at least we have Walmart.

Kentucky enters the 21st century

A surprisingly (almost) sanitized report on events from The Rude Pundit:

In Kentucky, last week, “a bill to make 18 the legal age for marriage in Kentucky…stalled in a Senate committee amid concerns about the rights of parents to allow children to wed at a younger age.” Right now, Kentucky law allows a judge to approve a marriage for anyone under 16, no matter what the age of the potential spouse is. According to state records, girls as young as 13 were married in the last few years. The bill wouldn’t allow any marriage under 17, and, in that case, a judge must be involved.

Social media got hold of the failure of the Senate committee to advance the bill, and, what do you know, all of a sudden it was back yesterday and it easily passed. Oh, sure, there were the usual bizarro fucknuts opposing it, like Republican Dan Seum, who stupidly said, “”I as a parent couldn’t let my pregnant 16-year-old daughter marry the guy that loves her, give the baby a name?” This led to the best smackdown by another Republican, Ralph Alvarado, who is a pediatrician: “I would argue they need more of a father than a husband at that age.” A bit patriarchal, sure, but it’s good to see evolution in action.

The bill was brought forward by Republican Senators Alice Forgy Kerr and Julie Raque Adams.  And, in testimony before the Kentucky Senate Judiciary Committee, former victim Donna Pollard told her story about the 29 year-old man who first statutorily raped when she was 14. By the time she was 16, she had married her rapist with permission from her mother, who herself had married at 13. Years later, Pollard got divorced and became a kickass advocate against child marriage.

As far as the profanity here, fucknut is a proper description. Kickass is now accepted as a movie title.
