Blood-drinking Florida Senate candidate barred from Canada over neo-Nazi ties

Published

on

A U.S. Senate candidate who previously made headlines for admitting to drinking goat’s blood says he was prohibited from entering Canada.

Augustus Invictus, a Libertarian candidate hoping to fill the Senate seat vacated by Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, said he was blocked from attending a Vancouver speaking engagement because of his affiliation with neo-Nazis, according to FloridaPolitics.com.

“Canadian Border Service then spent 3.5 hours investigating me,” Invictus complained in a press release. “I was interrogated about my affiliation with neo-Nazis, about the charges of Fascism, and about allegations of racism.”

Invictus, a 32-year-old lawyer, represented the former head of the neo-Nazi group American Front in 2014. His client, Marcus Faella, had been sentenced to six months in jail on domestic terrorism charges.

“I was a politician traveling to give a speech and yet they treated me like a gang member trying to run guns across the border,” Invictus continued. “They said that no good could come of my entry into the country because violence would certainly ensue.”

Invictus claimed that “communists” had threatened the event he planned to speak at. Canadian officials said allowing him into the country could cause violence.

“So I was prevented from making a speech because communists made threats of violence against me – and that seems to me to be ass backward. Clearly the Canadian government values the right of violent protest for communists more than they value the right of free speech for all.”

Last year, Invictus admitted to sacrificing a goat “to the god of the wilderness” and drinking its blood. The news broke after the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida resigned to call attention to his bizarre candidacy.

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

Israel’s Netanyahu just christened a building named after Trump — that doesn’t even exist

Published

on

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent his Father’s Day dedicating a new Trump Tower-type building that hasn't been built in a town that doesn't exist.

Standing in front of a large sign saying "Trump Heights," Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.

Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.
