    GOP Rep. Who Shared Claims of Tentacled Creatures in COVID Vaccines Quits Panels

    A New Hampshire Republican who disseminated a document claiming COVID-19 vaccines contained tentacled creatures that enter the human body has resigned from two committees of the state's legislature.

    State Representative Ken Wyler has stepped down as a member of the House Finance and Joint Legislative Fiscal committees following criticism from Republican Governor Chris Sununu and Democrats.

    Wyler said he had not read the entire 52-page document, which he sent to colleagues on the fiscal via email, and acknowledged that it contained "conspiracy material."

    The document, entitled The Vaccine Death Report, contained a number of false and conspiratorial claims, including that governments want to "steal our very own thoughts and feelings through 5G" and references about the Roman Catholic Church's supposedly evil "Black Pope" and "Grey Pope."

    Perhaps the most outrageous section was entitled "CREATURE WITH TENTACLES."

    The document claims that scientist describes seeing "a living organism with tentacles. This creature moves around, lifts itself up, and even seems to be self-aware" when the vaccine is viewed under the microscope.

    "The sight of this and the thought that these unknown, octopus-like creatures are being injected into millions of children worldwide, caused [the doctor] to weep," the document said.
    I'm familiar with Ken Weyler because he's been in the State Legislature for a long time and has a history of making irrational or profoundly ignorant statements. A couple weeks before he emailed around The Vaccine Death Report, he got into an argument in a committee meeting with the state's HHS head where he went off on a more general conspiracy rant. It got him a lot of bad publicity, so it was a little surprising to see him double down with the email.

    This little state has 400 House members and some of the more populous districts select up to 10 or 11 members, so we're used to seeing some kooks sneak in on the down ballot. It happens when the Democrats win too. But people like Weyler used to be kept on the sidelines where he wouldn't embarrass the party. That's changed. The crazy wing of the party is where all the energy and motivation is now, so even if they don't represent a majority of Republicans they are driving the party.

    We have a Republican governor here, and thankfully he is rational. But he's having a hard time holding back the crazy wing. They whipped themselves into a fervor and have gotten powerful enough that the governor has to sometimes throw them a bone or send a conservative virtual signal to prevent a revolt.

    Thanks, that's interesting context on New Hampshire. I've been reading recently that it's an odd enclave of Republicanism especially for the Northeast.

    other news is that Trump is attacking Colin Powell now because he's upset that there has been an outpouring of tributes for the man following his death from Covid complications. CNN:

    The real story is that narcissist Trump can't handle that someone else is getting a moment in the spotlight, even if it's because that person is dead. Trump then made sure that the statement pivoted around to talking about himself, and ended with a link to donate money to Trump!

    That's also a realization I came to surrounding Dr Fauci. Trump's rambling press conferences were deliberate - to UPSTAGE Fauci. He couldn't stand anyone else being the man of the moment. So what is otherwise incomprehensible behavior suddenly makes sense.

    Trump just *straight up* has debilitating Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Someone else commented that if Trump had just backed up Fauci, and said "Trust The Plan" then every Q believer would have been out there pushing pandemic prevention, and Trump would have *sailed home* to win the election. But Trump's mental illness didn't allow him to do that. In fact, I think his broader thing was he was upset at being upstaged - BY COVID.

    And even now, the whole election fraud thing is much more likely to torpedo a Trump comeback as it is to help. trump can't let any grievance go. that's who he is.

    Obvious narcissism aside, I think Trump deliberately tries to consume all the air in the room as a strategy.

    You know how he's going to be all over the campaign trail next year trying to make the mid-terms all about him vs. Biden again.

    It's hard to predict whether the party will stick with him all the way to the next Presidential primary. Depends on the outcome of next year's elections I suppose.

    On that segueway, new politico article about Arizona candidates for next year:

    As the party hardens around its fealty to former President Donald Trump, the GOP is filling up its midterm ballot with a roster of conspiracy theorists and extremists that could threaten the party’s prospects in a state that’s drifted leftward in recent elections.

    The latest of those candidates is Ron Watkins, a celebrity in the QAnon conspiracy world suspected of being Q, who announced his plans to run for Congress last week.

    It isn’t just that Watkins embraces the baseless claim that the November election was stolen. It’s that an entire ticket is running on that falsehood now. The state’s congressional delegation features Rep. Paul Gosar, who spoke earlier this year at a conference organized by a white nationalist, and Rep. Andy Biggs, who falsely maintains “we don’t know” who won the presidential election in Arizona.

    State Rep. Mark Finchem, one of the chief proponents of the discredited post-election ballot review in Arizona, has been endorsed by Trump in his bid for secretary of state. And Kari Lake, the former TV anchor who has become a frontrunner for governor, still insists Trump carried the state and said recently that she would not have certified the 2020 election.


    “The goalposts keep moving,” said Bill Gates, a Republican Maricopa County supervisor. “It used to be that we got into genuine debates about whether you’re more of a conservative or a moderate. We used to debate over ideology. And now it is how far you can go down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories. And if you’re unwilling to do it, it doesn’t matter if you’re pro-life, if you’ve never voted for a tax increase. It doesn’t matter. It’s all about going deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole, unfortunately.”
    I'm not sure this is can even be boiled down to a question of whether Republicans will even support or drop Trump any more. The real question right now is how much this surge actually eats away at the Republicans like a cancer and how much that mestatisizes to infecting the rest of America.

    The USA seems to be headed to a situation where either the great experiment will end or the GOP will die. Let's hope it is the latter.

    [Texas Lt. Gov. Dan] Patrick, a Republican, promised to pay $25,000 to any tipster who came forward with evidence of real voter fraud. He cut his first check this week.
    Patrick’s five-figure payout went to a progressive poll worker in Pennsylvania whose tip led to a single conviction of illegal voting by a registered Republican.

    The unexpected outcome reveals the political dangers of cash bounties. With few strings attached, and more cases of alleged GOP voting fraud still in Pennsylvania courts, Patrick may be asked to shell out even more cash to his opponents.

    I'm impressed he actually paid out.

    His team probably figured it would be a bigger headline if he refused to pay out.


    Lauren Witzke, a self-styled “Christian nationalist” who embraced QAnon and support from white supremacists, was the Delaware GOP’s candidate for Senate in 2020, receiving 186,000 votes in her failed run against Democratic incumbent Sen. Chris Coons.

    In a post on Gab, a social network popular with right-wing extremists, Witzke claimed she was “recovering from this insane bio-weapon called Covid.” The 33-year-old, who has worked as a political commentator for the right-wing Christian conspiracy site TruNews, said she had decided not to tell anyone earlier so as not to alert “the shitlibs in the media.”

    “This bio-weapon is demonic,” she wrote. “I’ve lost all of my senses and struggle with constant indifference, brain fog, and I’ve lost my joy.”

    In posts shared on her Telegram channel, Witzke blamed TruNews for making her aware of the infection, insisting that nasal swabs were ultimately responsible for her getting COVID-19. “I’m an idiot for submitting to their demands and getting tested,” she wrote, “and yes I know I need a good husband in my life to keep me from making bad decisions.

    She left the company in September.

    Prior to her departure, Witzke attributed a June outbreak of COVID-19 among TruNews staff to a “demonic attack” for having hosted far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, a former Breitbart writer who now claims to be “ex-gay.”

    “I don’t think it’s any coincidence that the TruNews crew all got deathly ill, got very sick, right after they brought Milo on,” she said, as reported by PinkNews.

    Witzke currently works with Stew Peters, an online broadcaster who has repeatedly pushed false claims about vaccines. On his program, Witzke herself claimed that COVID-19 vaccinations were a “mass death scale injection” that would precede the end of the world.

    Well he did paint himself into a corner by insisting it be a tip leading to a conviction. And the guy that did the fraud is making it sound like he was just a dottering old man that didn't know what he was doing & thought he could vote for his absent son, so kind of an "innocent" explanation. The way they can spin it is, Patrick is holding up his side of the bargain, paying out to legit cases, but the "real problem" is that the Dems are hiding their "massive fraud", how else can you explain all of those "millions of missing votes", while they are ganging up on poor dottering individual old men on the GOP side, but see, I'm fair, I held up my end of the deal anyway.

    Or something like that. It probably doesn't even matter. The T loyalists are such low information voters, all they care about is that a pay-out was made. All he needs to show is that fraud was happening & the system wasn't stopping it: "the election was fraudulent", and they don't even need get to the part about which side it was on.

    The moronic defense of T's blunders I see on comments, and the passion with which they push them, is so unreal to see. The one I saw this morning, some guy was going on & on insisting "Show me one example of Trump lying. You can't even tell me a single one!" Yeah. I don't know what planet that guy is living on, but there seems to be a lot of people squatting there. They just say TDS or "Orange Man Bad" and double-down on their defenses. What a dumb timeline we live in.
