WATCH: Tampon-waving woman demands officials protect her right to speak in tongues amid anti-gay rant

Published

on

A failed U.S. Senate candidate known for speaking in tongues spoke out against LGBT rights in a wacky, tampon-waving address to city officials in Anchorage.

Kathleen Tonn, the former Republican candidate, carried a briefcase stuffed with props and wore a wool hat and flannel sweatshirt Tuesday night to the meeting of the Anchorage assembly, which is considering an LGBT rights ordinance, reported the Joe My God blog.

“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. You like my trumpet? It’s a sound heard around the world,” Tonn said, before pulling a Bible from her briefcase.

The assembly chairman asked Tonn to state and spell her name, which she elaborately did, ending the display with a bit of free association.

“Tonn as in a ton of sin, a ton of judgment,” she said, as the chairman asked where she lived. “Hillside, where the sun was most of the summer. A ton of ‘nucular’ destruction.”

“Since one of my brethren introduced the King James Bible, since I represent the Lord Jesus Christ the great I am, I’m going to add to your public document and your public record from the public document of the great I am,” Tonn told baffled officials.

“Starting with, oh my — a tampon,” she said, pulling a feminine hygiene product from between the pages of her Bible. “Reminds me that little girls in pubescence get periods — female girls.”

Tonn, who is probably best known for a video she posted online showing herself fully clothed and speaking in tongues in a sauna, then angrily read a lengthy passage from the Second Epistle of Peter describing God’s wrathful judgment against Sodom and Gomorrah.

“Now, since you want to create some ordinance to avoid discrimination for members of our community who engage in, I perceive, unhealthy, ungodly behavior, you might want to consider creating an ordinance for one who speaks in tongues.”

“Ma’am, your time is up,” said Dick Traini, the assembly chairman. “Thank you for your testimony.”

The ordinance, which was co-sponsored by assemblymen Patrick Flynn and Bill Evans, would prohibit discrimination against any person based on sexual orientation or gender identity in employment, public accommodations and housing.

But assembly members are considering an amendment that would allow individuals, businesses or organizations to claim religious grounds to discriminate against LGBT people.

Ted Cruz smacked down by ex-FBI agent for suggesting Trump’s Ukraine scheme was about anti-corruption

Published

on

Despite the fact that it is now clear that President Donald Trump did not care if Ukraine investigated former Vice President Joe Biden's family, but just wanted them to announce that they were heading into election season, some Republicans are still attempting to claim that his scheme to illegally withhold military funds until they did so served a legitimate purpose in stamping out global corruption.

One such Republican is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who took to Twitter to argue this point:

A reminder of what this is all about: any president -- any administration -- is justified in investigating corruption.

‘CBS News just lost all credibility’: network slammed for hiring Reince Priebus as a political analyst

Published

on

CBS News received harsh blowback on Wednesday after the network announced it had hired former Donald Trump chief of staff Reince Priebus.

CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter posted on Twitter a clip of the network announcing the hiring.

The network quickly received criticism for the decision, especially in light of reports that everyone who works for Trump is required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which permanently bars them from ever disparaging Trump.

Here's some of what people were saying:

Republicans are losing — even if Trump will be acquitted: Columnist Max Boot

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot walked through the ways that Republicans are completely failing in their attempt to defend President Donald Trump.

The president's trial began Tuesday with a series of votes where Republicans blocked a vote on whether to include witnesses, evidence and any information from the House investigations. It appeared that the president's team was unprepared to argue against the witnesses and evidence, instead, demanding the trial begin immediately and arguments over witnesses be dismissed.
