Another Republican piece of crap

https://theintercept.com/2018/01/19/gop-candidate-for-pennsylvania-special-election-is-a-former-abu-ghraib-interrogation-consultant/

RICK SACCONE, the GOP nominee in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district, is a former intelligence support consultant for the U.S. Army at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison. He has written extensively in support of interrogation tactics widely condemned by human rights experts as torture.

Over the years, drawing upon his experience in Iraq, Saccone has promoted waterboarding, stress positions, sleep deprivation, as well as threatening prisoners with execution, dogs, and electrocution, as necessary tactics for obtaining information from detainees.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump appeared in North Fayette Township in Pennsylvania to promote Saccone’s candidacy. Despite the district going to Trump by some 20 points in November, the GOP is at risk of losing it to Democrat Conor Lamb.

The election was triggered by the sudden resignation of Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Penn., after revelations last year that the pro-life lawmaker had pressured his mistress to seek an abortion.

not only “a piece of crap”…but an incredibly scary sounding “piece of crap”. Perhaps his campaign slogan should be…the Jackboots Go Marching On 🙁

James Clapper’s perjury, and why DC made men don’t get charged for lying to Congress

subtitle,

In DC, perjury is not simply tolerated, it is rewarded. In a city of made men and women, nothing says loyalty quite as much as lying under oath.

yep

congress does not do its job, just like Bernie said

and use of power to shut down dissent
