Add your punch line: Nevada brothel owner wins GOP legislative primary

Published

on

Perhaps character really is dead in American politics, but we kind of knew that in the 2016 cycle, right? Dennis Hof certainly did. The most celebrated pimp in America — the only one with his own HBO series — won a Republican primary in Nevada yesterday, and guess who he credits with his victory?

Actually, there are only two possibilities, and either of them would suffice:

Pimp Dennis Hof, the owner of half a dozen legal brothels in Nevada and star of the HBO adult reality series “Cathouse,” won a Republican primary for the state Legislature on Tuesday, ousting a three-term lawmaker.

Hof defeated hospital executive James Oscarson. He’ll face Democrat Lesia Romanov in November, and will be the favored candidate in the Republican-leaning Assembly district.

Hof celebrated his win at a party in Pahrump with Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss at his side.

“It’s all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me,” Hof told the Associated Press in a phone call. “He found the way and I jumped on it.”

It’s only a seat in the state legislature, but don’t sell Hof short. His win in the GOP primary puts him in good position to win in November in a Republican-leaning Nevada district, and after that, who knows? He can always run on the argument that the Beltway is nothing more than a brothel that needs an experienced pimp to manage it properly. Beats “drain the swamp,” I guess.

Hof’s ambitions probably don’t run that high, though. He’s mainly running to keep prostitution legal in the counties where his brothels operate. At least one county will have a measure on the November ballot that could shut down one or more of his, er, customer-service centers. Hof wants to rally support for legalized prostitution with his campaign, which may be why he switched from Libertarian to Republican in this cycle; he lost to Oscarson by a wide margin as a Libertarian in a previous cycle. If the district was more Democrat-leaning, he would have run for their nomination instead. Winning the seat will give Hof more clout to protect his businesses, which is really the extent of Hof’s ideology.

Still, it does seem curious that Hof has met with this much success in the #MeToo era after having built a fortune on the backs of women. Just how far can Hof go? Depends on how shameless he is … and how many options voters have, for that matter.

FBI Director Wray Praises Mueller “I Do Not Believe Special Counsel Mueller is on a Witch Hunt” (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

FBI Director Christopher Wray testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday on the IG report’s findings of the Clinton email investigation.

Christopher Wray told Senator Leahy (D-VT) that Robert Mueller’s investigation is ‘not a witch hunt.’

FBI Director Wray once again proves he serves the Deep State swamp rather than the interests of the American people.

FBI Director Christopher Wray held a press conference last Thursday afternoon from the FBI headquarters in DC following the release of the IG report was released.

Wray defended the swamp; he said the IG report “did not find any evidence of political bias or improper considerations actually impacting the investigation under review.”

On Monday, the FBI Director praised Mueller and said the dirty cop is not on a witch hunt.

Truly disgusting.

VIDEO:

We shouldn’t be surprised as Wray defended the corrupt officials in the FBI brass last week in a disgraceful press conference.

Americans are disgusted after reading more anti-Trump text messages from FBI agents.

What a disgrace.
The top officials at the FBI and DOJ hated Donald Trump and his supporters.

The Deep State hacks called Trump supporters: F***ing Idiots, Sad, Pathetic, Retarded.

Chris Wray told reporters there was “no evidence of political bias.”
This is the same FBI that had spies inside the Trump campaign and continued to spy on President-elect Trump after his election and inauguration.
And the FBI spy infiltrating the Trump campaign openly advocated for Hillary Clinton during the election.

According to Wray, there’s no political bias and Mueller is not on a witch hunt despite KGB tactics of breaking down doors and raiding anyone connected to the president without even naming the crime.

Wray needs to go.

Study: The states with the most psychopaths seem to be blue

Published

on

By

Why on Earth would we talk about a Social Science Research Center study like this? The real question is… how could we not?

Reported at QZ, this new study by Southern Methodist University Professor Ryan Murphy correlated a bunch of data which I can’t make heads or tails of and figured out how psychopathic the residents of every state are. He was looking at the “levels of big five personality traits” (extroversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, and openness to experience) in each state. These apparently correlate with other traits which identify psychopathic tendencies. To put it mildly, the news was not good for the blue states.

Sometimes, it can feel like there are psychopaths everywhere. If you live in the United States, it’s now possible to move to less psychopathic environs, thanks to new research ranking 48 contiguous states by psychopathy.

Connecticut wins the dubious award of most psychopathic state in the US, followed by California in second, and New Jersey third. New York and Wyoming tie for joint fourth place, followed by Maine. The least psychopathic state is West Virginia, followed by Vermont, Tennessee, North Carolina, and New Mexico…

Earlier research shows that psychopathy is composed of disinhibition, boldness, and meanness, and a forthcoming paper shows that these characteristics can be translated into the big five traits.

I’m still not sure how things like “meanness” and disinhibition translate over to characteristics typical of psychopaths, but then, I only lasted for a few classes in pre-med. It’s still interesting to note that while the five states with the highest psychopath rating were almost entirely blue states in the northeast (plus California), the least psychopathic ones were in red (or at least reddish purple) areas. Who would have guessed that West Virginia would be the best location, particularly if you’ve ever watched the movies based in that region?

Oh, there was one more kicker to the study results. You might have been wondering where the District of Columbia landed. The answer is that it’s not on the list because it rang up a psychopath rating that was off the charts but was disqualified due to mitigating circumstances. (Emphasis added)

Murphy also included the District of Columbia in his research, and found it had a psychopathy level far higher than any other state. But this finding is an outlier, as Murphy notes, as it’s an entirely urban area and cannot be fairly compared with larger, more geographically diverse, US states. That said, as Murphy notes, “The presence of psychopaths in District of Columbia is consistent with the conjecture found in Murphy (2016) that psychopaths are likely to be effective in the political sphere.”

So if you’re looking for the highest concentration of psychopaths in the country, head to Washington, D.C. Apparently they have more of them than you can shake a stick at and the majority are working “in the political sphere.”

C’mon, man. You’re not going to sit there and tell me you’re surprised.

BREAKING: IG Horowitz Confirms Comey Under Investigation For Handling of Classified Memos

Published

on

By

Inspector General Horowitz confirmed Monday during a Congressional hearing Comey is under investigation for his handling of classified information.

Fired FBI Director James Comey penned 7 memos stemming from 9 conversations with President Trump.

At least 4 of 7 of the memos contained classified information.

Comey gave contents of his memos to his ‘friend’ Daniel Richman to leak to the New York Times in order to prompt a Special Counsel.

On Monday, Inspector General Horowitz was asked by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley ‘if the IG is investigating Comey’s handling of his memos about Trump.’

Horowitz replied in the affirmative.

“Yes, we’re investigating it and will produce a report on it.”
