WATCH: GOP teacher opens a can of whoop ass on Oklahoma legislators during statehouse funding protest

Published

on

Thousands of teachers besieged the Oklahoma statehouse today to demand sufficient funding for schools.

Among them was Ray, a fifth-grader teacher in Oklahoma went to the statehouse where he opened a can of whoop ass on state legislators.

The man has worked second jobs at Subway and the Dollar Tree, he says, which is absurd given his level of education.

“There’s something wrong when you have a Master’s Degree and you’re ringing a cash register to help put your kid through college and pay for things like scouting,” he said.

And while the Republican-controlled state legislature says they are just trying to balance needs, he sees something more sinister.

“We’ve got money to fix this,” he said. “And, remember, this is the same legislature that’s found money to give themselves several raises over the last few years, but they’re trying to tell us they can’t put a textbook in every kid’s hand? We’re not buying it, m’am.”

The man indicated that he would remain a loyal Republican—but that he wanted new leadership.

“If they put an ‘R’ on a fence post and run it against one of these ones who don’t fix this funding I will vote for the fence post,” he said.

Trump’s lie about ‘doctored’ impeachment transcripts debunked by impeachment witnesses’ lawyers

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday falsely accused Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) of releasing "doctored" transcripts of impeachment inquiry witnesses and then bizarrely suggested that Republicans release their own versions of the transcripts.

"Shifty Adam Schiff will only release doctored transcripts," the president wrote on Twitter. "We haven’t even seen the documents and are restricted from (get this) having a lawyer."

Trump presented no evidence to back up his claim that Schiff had done something to alter the transcripts, which show that multiple administration officials testified that the Trump administration was withholding aid to Ukraine until its government agreed to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump-appointed judge delivers major blow to president’s efforts to keep his taxes secret

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Monday suffered yet another legal defeat in his quest to keep his tax returns a secret -- and it came at the hands of one of the president's own appointees.

CNN reports that Trump-appointed Judge Carl Nichols the of United States District Court for the District of Columbia has ruled that the president cannot sue the state of New York in his court to prevent the release of his taxes.

In his ruling, Nichols found that Trump's attorneys failed to establish a so-called "conspiracy jurisdiction" based on his accusations that New York Attorney General Letitia James is a co-conspirator with House Democrats in a plot to improperly reveal the president's personal financial information.
