Denny Needs His Child Molester Hush Money Back

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="992.0"] Good times... Good times... [/caption]

Former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert (far right, above) wants it all back.

Hastert actually wants all of that hush money he paid to the young man who he began molesting at the age of 14 as a refund of sorts.

I'm not making this up.

Child molester Dennis Hastert wants his victim to pay up.
The infamously anti-gay former House Speaker wants "James Doe"—formerly identified in court proceedings as “Individual A”—to refund $1.7 million in hush money he paid out after molesting Doe, then just 14 years old, during a wrestling trip decades ago. Hastert was then a high school teacher and athletic coach before striking it big in Republican politics.
When James Doe found out he wasn’t Hastert’s only victim a decade ago, he confronted Hastert and began receiving cash payments for his silence. The victim said that Hastert promised him $3.5 million if he did not speak to authorities about the abuse.

Hastert believes that the two had an enforceable contract. If Hastert gave him money, the young man would not tell anyone that Hastert was a child molester. 

Now, would it be unfair of me to point out that Hastert is a Republican? Would it be unfair of me to point out that the last three or four Republican speakers have been, shall we say, an unmitigated disaster and a horrorshow for the country to witness in public? I'll just leave all this out there for you to decide.

Democrats Are Trying to Save America

Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

Spoiler Alert

Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

Everyone ch…
