Oh Dear: Sex, Lies & Democrats

Seems a raided sex shop was a supporter of Democrats…


FBI Seizes Website Linked To Sex Crimes; Owners Donated To Democrats
By Ryan Saavedra April 6, 2018

On Friday, the U.S. government seized Backpage.com as part of a law enforcement action by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies after the site came under intense legal scrutiny for allegations of facilitating sex trafficking and underage prostitution.

An FBI official said that there was “law enforcement activity” at the home of Michael Lacey, one of the website’s founders, at his home in Arizona, Reuters reported. The seizure banner on the website stated:

The website was the target of law enforcement scrutiny over allegations that “it facilitated sex trafficking and prostitution through its adult section, a controversy that took years to unwind and culminated in the arrest of the company’s CEO and eventual removal of the adult section,” The Verge reports.

The owners of the website have given tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats in recent years, including a Super PAC backed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the failed presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, Democratic candidate for governor in Arizona David Garcia, and the Arizona Democratic Party.

Well that ought to stir the sex pot… but you probably won’t see it on CNN:


Has an annoying pop-up demanding you whitelist them in your ad blocker so I’ve quoted enough you don’t need to go there.

2018’s 1st Quarter Ratings Are In — CNN Is Getting DESTROYED By Other News Networks

A new report indicates that Fox News and MSNBC’s ratings far outpaced CNN’s for the first quarter of 2018.

AdWeek reports that Fox News “was the most-watched basic cable network for Q1 2018, both in prime time and in total day.” (RELATED: Not A Single CNN Show Is In The Top 20 For Cable News)

Left-leaning MSNBC was right behind Fox News, but CNN was significantly lower.

In primetime basic cable rankings, CNN was number 11, below not only Fox News and MSNBC, but ESPN, TBS and the History Channel. (RELATED: CNN’s Primetime Ratings Drop 30 Percent From Same Time Last Year)

In terms of total viewership, CNN comes in at the number 7 slot.

Is that the sound of water I hear? Perhaps a swamp being drained somewhere?…

    Larry Flynt is a big democrats supporter as well. This guy just took Larry one step further.

    The next step in the democrat madness – legitimizing pedophilia. Salon has already featured an article doing just that.

    I can remember when CNN was the real deal — was that back during the 1st Iraq War? [1991]
    I haven’t paid any attention since Ol’Shep was a pup.

  3. Larry Ledwick says:

    Back during the Gulf war was when the mask began to come of as people found out CNN was paying Saddam H (bribing) for the privilege of doing their exclusive interviews.

    Just trashed an anonymous comment complaining they were no longer going to be a reader as “I thought I was following a scientist’s blog”. Guess they can’t handle someone doing more than one thing. I can do Science, and program computers, and know how to store food, and share cooking tips, and make fun of silly politicians. I’m a well rounded person.

    It’s also possible it was just a phish posting as the name and email address looked fake and the comment is the kind of generic thing you get daily in such stuff. For a long time I got a dozen a day of “Oh, love your stuff!” then it was “I’m having trouble reading this on FOO browser” then… Well, it goes in waves. It’s possible this is a start of a round of “I’m unhappy” phish. These things have an email address or web site URL that leads a random who clicks on them into the baited trap. So I just delete all such on sight. (Most of them are trivial to spot as they have email addresses like sexxxy.ru or viagracheap.info … some more creative ones have harvested random email addresses from other real folks but a URL that’s the trap. Each year they get more creative and both WordPress and I get to “up our game”) So this is a possible, but not a guaranteed. But worth trashing the doubtful one anyway.

    So assuming it was (maybe) serious: Thin skinned folks, aren’t they? One little bit of snark about some Democrats getting their winky caught out in a cops raid and they have to cut and run. Golly! And here the Dims are running 24 x 7 x (at least a dozen channels) Get Trump Sexpolits stories… but I guess that’s supposed to be OK ’cause it’s on their side…

    Now for me, I just find the whole story funny. Here the Dems & Dims are trying their darnedest to play the Morality Outrage card, and they get caught being funded by online prostitution and smut. One simply MUST grin at the poetic justice of it all… or at very least snicker.

    But maybe it was their goose being roasted or ox being gored. (Al Gored? ;-)

    Whatever. One less thin skinned sourpuss in my life is a feature. Life is too short to drink bad wine, and that’s what they are. Me? I’m going to have a good laugh at the Dims with their “winky on parade” just as much as I will at any Republican caught with his pants down. It’s the only good thing I’ve experienced from most professional politicians… a good laugh at their expense. After all, they use my tax money for every other expense…

    True. I’ve seen that comment I think on 2 other blogs. I didn’t pay much attention and the nutter got deleted anyway. I think it was The Pointman who unleashed a volley and banned him/her/it, and JoNova?

  6. Jeff says:

    Sounds like the DemoRats are going to encounter “Winky Dink and You” for real – their crimes will be as transparent as that foil that went over theTV set (back in the 1950s) :)

  7. E.M.Smith says:

    @Graeme No.3:

    Multiple climate realist’s sites implies a psy-ops demoralize and create anger campaign. In-artfully done though. Amateurish and mostly just a bit of a laugh at them.

    I did a ‘whois’ on the site name and IP. Looks like a US person at home on a cable company service. Oddly, their IP block is in use both in Tampa and a city in Texas. Go figure. It would take a few more hours to narrow it down to street,but not worth it.

  8. Larry Ledwick says:

    This may be tit for tat, while I was driving into work the FBI raided President Trump’s lawyers office.

    All the major media trumpeted the raid within minutes of it occurring.

    From twitter
    John Salisbury
    3 hours ago
    Trump Attorney Michael Cohen’s offices raided. All major news outlets publish exact same story within 6 minutes of each other.

    #OperationMockingbird is in effect. #DeepState is about to go down. They’re desperate now. #MAGA @POTUS #QAnon #TQFam #8Chan #TheStormIsHere

    NYT story

  10. llanfar says:

    @Larry watched Brendan Dilly periscope tonight (so funny tonight), and he mentioned that one interesting detail in that everyone involved in the raids/warrant approval, etc. are Trump appointees… Hadn’t thought about a Trump troll…

  11. Larry Ledwick says:

    I have been thinking the same thing (mean while behind the curtain ???)
    Syria?, major take down of someone on the left? National Guard and the wall on the boarder?

    It will be clear in time, in fact the whole Stormy Danniels thing could be a big charade.
