GOP Congressional Candidate:
Spousal Rape Shouldn´t Be a Crime

Mother Jones, by Molly Redden

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/16/2014 4:54:38 AM

After taking a drubbing in last year´s state elections, Virginia Republicans are debating whether their party has come to be defined by its extremists. But in a congressional district in Northern Virginia, one of the state´s main instigators of culture warfare, state Sen. Richard H. "Dick" Black, is running in the Republican primary to replace longtime GOP moderate Rep. Frank Wolf, who is retiring. And he´s guaranteed to ignite wedge-issue passion. Exhibit A: As a state legislator, Black opposed making spousal rape a crime, citing the impossibility of convicting a husband accused of raping his wife "when they´re living together,

You´d think the law of averages would show that ALL these nuts wouldn´t be running for Republican offices, but you´d be wrong.

It is worth noting that his objection to the spousal rape law was based on the opinion that it is impossible to prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt, not on the opinion that spousal rape is OK.

This reports seems rife with the possibility that the journalist is painting one side of the story only, and intentionally inflammatory at that. I don´t know the details beyond what is herein, though.

Good point #2. Kind of like charging your lawn maintenance company with trespassing because they showed up on Thursday, instead of the regular schedule of Tuesday.

Lefties never miss the opportunity to twist the truth for their benefit.

While dutifully suppressing any and all Obama/Democrat scandal news, this is the sort of thing the international MSM picks up on and immediately splashes across the world´s front pages, as definitive proof of how evil-racist-mysogonist-greedy-stupid-(all of the above) those neanderthal Republicans are for opposing the Blessed Socialist Democrat People´s Party of Barack Hussein The Lightbringer. I give this story about 3 hours before it´s flashing like neon on newsstands and lefty websites from Kuala Lumpur to Santiago.

Wow, Mother Jones and Molly Redden. My first thought was, ´I wonder if there is any chance this article is either biased or outright untruthful,´ so I read it. Lo and Behold, I find both!

Let´s start with the headline. Senator Black did not say that spousal rape shouldn´t be a crime, he said that he didn´t see how it could be fairly prosecuted. What was not included in this article is that the Senator did vote for the legislation after assuring himself that it would not be easy to abuse the law. What a nut!

And he is clearly an extremist since he opposes abortion. Allowing Virginians to purchase "Choose Life" license plates? Oh, my! By the way, Mother Jones or Ms. Redden might want to do a little fact checking on their claims that an increase in the risk of breast cancer in women who have had abortions, and pain response in a 20 week old fetus are not medically supported.

Let´s see, what else did this whacko do? Oh yes, he supported legislation to put respectful attitudes - or at least speech - back into the classroom. *gasp!*

In order to demonstrate why libraries should block pornography on their computers, he took a TV reporter to show him what was possible to view on a library terminal. He did not ´watch violent rape porn´. I would say shame on you, Ms. Redden, but I doubt it would do any good.

There is more but I will let those of you with the stomach for it find it for yourselves. I will give you the money quote, though.

A not-so-conservative Republican nominee may be key to keeping the seat in Republican hands.

Nice of Mother Jones to be looking out for our interests.

Even if what #2 says is true, republicans MUST be aware of what they are saying and how their words will be spun. Regardless, this candidate is either naive a screaming moron or both.

The communists know that they cant beat republicans on foreign policy, economics or defense. They can, however, and do beat us by appealing to the "feelings" of the hopelessly moronic. Every republican knows, or should know this. Every republican running for office or holding a position should proceed knowing this and work diligently to NOT give the Marxists ammunition.

A Beaumont man was cited by police after riling up motorists by standing at an intersection carrying an AK-47 while dressed as a banana. Derek Poe, owner of Golden Triangle Tactical gun shop, said the stunt was part of the store´s grand opening after moving locations. Poe said the man in the banana suit was holding an AK-47 across his back with the barrel pointing down and holding a sign with an arrow pointing toward the store. He said this idea was to attract customers to the store. A Beaumont police spokesperson said officers temporarily detained the 18-year-old and found he had the rifle

According to the press release, she died Monday night, surrounded by her family and caregivers. Temple is best known for her doe-eyed turn in numerous 1930s films, including "Bright Eyes" and "Curly Top," roles that allowed her to showcase a special brand of energy and optimism for a country enduring the Great Depression. She started dancing at age 2 and acting at 3. By the time she was 5, she was stealing the show. In 1934, she was awarded a special miniature Oscar for

Massachusetts state representative Carloz Henriquez was convicted last Wednesday of assaulting a woman who refused to have sex with him and was sentenced to six months in prison. Following his conviction, the president of the New England Area Chapter (NEAC) of the NAACP, Juan Cofield, jumped to Henriquez’s defense, comparing the assault on and beating of a woman to jaywalking. “[Henriquez] was convicted of two misdemeanors — not felonies — misdemeanors, and there is no standard in the House for expulsion based on misdemeanor convictions” Cofield said on a radio show late last week. “Almost every one of us .

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she´s considering a presidential bid in 2016. In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen.

At an annual gathering of Republican bigwigs in Florida a year ago, a top GOP strategist was chided after he gave a presentation about how his party would win the Senate in 2014, including a handout that blared “MAJORITY” in red. “Stop saying majority,” donors, consultants and even some senators told National Republican Senatorial Committee Executive Director Rob Collins, he recalled in an interview. “Just say you’re going to be able to pick up a few seats.” Fast forward to early this month, when the annual event took place again at the same posh Palm Beach resort.

Democratic politicians and the White House cheered the news saying, “Opportunity created by affordable, quality health insurance allows families in America to make a decision about how they will work, or if they will work.” Only Democrats could celebrate the fact that millions will lose their work and be broke thanks to their failed policy.

For the better part of a year, the most tantalizing question in New Hampshire politics has been: What the heck is Scott Brown up to? The former senator from Massachusetts seems to be popping up everywhere in the state he now claims as his home. He has appeared at Republican fundraisers, Lincoln Day dinners, county GOP gatherings and, most recently, shirtless across three columns of the front page of the Union Leader, the state’s largest newspaper. Brown was one of 600 people who plunged into the frigid Atlantic off Hampton Beach on Feb. 2 to raise money for the Special

In his angry New York Times piece from Friday in which he vehemently denied sexually abusing his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, more than 20 years-ago, Woody Allen also took the chance to address the parentage of Ronan Farrow. Last fall, Mia Farrow set tongues wagging across Hollywood when she hinted in a Vanity Fair article it was ´possible´ Ronan was in fact the son of singer Frank Sinatra and not Allen. In his Times piece, Allen seems willing to accept that Ronan is not his son - and then uses this possibility as a way to attack Mia Farrow´s fidelity towards him

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring.

Powerful winds in the Pacific Ocean, which have driven surface heat deep underwater, could be the reason behind the current ‘pause’ in global warming. This is according to a joint Australian and U.S. study which has looked at why there has been a slowdown in the planet’s global average surface temperature over the past decade. Their research shows that trade winds in central and eastern parts of the Pacific have caused warm surface water to sink to the ocean´s depths, reducing the amount of heat in the atmosphere.
