Michael Steele’s Topless Lesbian Bondage Strip Club Dancers

The Face of Michael Steele’s GOP?

Michael Steele, the constantly-embattled GOP Chairman, whose gaffes and embarrassing behavior have made a great many Republicans wish they could fire him (but that could be even more embarrassing in an election year,) may just have given them their wish. Because, what could be greater grounds for firing (aside from Steele’s poor performance) than his attending (and charging $1,946.25 to his GOP expense account) “Voyeur West Hollywood, a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex.

Adding special insult to injury, the report comes not from the Left, but from conservative pundit-turned-blogmaster, Fox News Commentator, Cato Institute senior fellow, former bow tie wearer, and gay-marriage supporter (huh?) Tucker Carlson (who is no stranger to dancing, either.) To top it all off, this particular aspect of the story appeared in The Guardian, a U.K. newspaper. (Many British tabloids are known for proudly featuring photos of naked women’s breasts on their front pages.)

In, “Michael Steele and the strippers,” Richard Adams writes,

“Voyeur West Hollywood is, according to the Los Angeles Times, modelled on sex scenes in the awful Stanley Kubrick/Tom Cruise/Nicole Kidman porn film Eyes Wide Shut.”

“A recent reviewer on the Yelp website wrote: “There are topless ‘dancers’ acting out S&M scenes throughout the night on one of the side stages, there’s a half-naked girl hanging from a net across the ceiling and at one point I walked to the bathroom and pretty much just stopped dead in my tracks to watch two girls simulating oral sex in a glass case. Really understated elegance here.”

Yes, if there were two words I would use to describe Michael “I oppose gay marriage but am not going to beat people upside the head about it” Steele, it’s “understated elegance.”

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet The Press” last Sunday, Steele said of that weekend’s news that Tea Partiers were making very public racial slurs,

“It’s not a danger … It’s certainly not a reflection of the movement or the Republican Party when you have idiots out there saying stupid things.”

No, Mr. Steele, in your eyes, evidently, it is not a danger when you have idiots saying or doing stupid things. But to the world, when the Chairman of the Republican National Committee is constantly saying and doing stupid things, including attending “a bondage-themed nightclub featuring topless women dancers imitating lesbian sex,” one has to wonder how much longer a once-great, now embattled regional political party can continue to support a leader who is taking them down just as fast as their own policies are?

Carlson’s “Daily Caller” broke the story early this morning in, “High flyer: RNC Chairman Steele suggested buying private jet with GOP funds,” which also mentions Steele’s excessive spending and excessively poor performance:

“Steele travels in style. A February RNC trip to California, for example, included a $9,099 stop at the Beverly Hills Hotel, $6,596 dropped at the nearby Four Seasons…

“RNC trips to other cities produced bills from a long list of chic and costly hotels such as the Venetian and the M Resort in Las Vegas, and the W (for a total of $19,443) in Washington. A midwinter trip to Hawaii cost the RNC $43,828, not including airfare.

“Still, the nature and size of Steele’s expenses are likely to reignite persistent complaints from high-end donors and key party figures that the RNC is bleeding cash in the months before a pivotal midterm election. Several months into Steele’s term as chairman, his spending spurred Republican committeemen to pass a resolution requiring checks to be signed by at least two RNC officers, and contracts over $100,000 to go out to competitive bidding.

Complaints, almost always expressed off the record, have been bitter. “This is not somebody who is out recruiting candidates,” said an aide who worked closely with Steele. “He is not meeting with donors. He’s not asking for money. The guy is writing his book or doing his speaking gigs, or whatever the hell else he fills his days with. Those are his priorities.”

Well, that, and the topless, lesbian, bondage, strip club dancers. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Unless you want to remain Chairman of the RNC.

As one commenter on Twitter wrote,

“Let me get this straight. Frum gets fired for writing a sensible article criticizing the GOP but Steele and the Pope get to keep their jobs?”

The Daily News adds this:

“Talk about a grand ol’ party.

The “family values” Republican National Committee spent $1,946 at a West Hollywood strip club last month, records show, but a spokesman insisted Monday that RNC chairman Michael Steele was not among the revelers.

“The chairman was never at the location in question, he had no knowledge of the expenditure, nor does he find the use of committee funds at such a location at all acceptable,” said RNC spokeswoman Doug Heye, who added that the committee was investigating the expenditure.

“If limos, chartered aircraft and sex clubs are where they think their donors money should be spent – who are we to judge?” jabbed DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse. “But it shouldn’t give voters much confidence in Republicans when they say they want to get back in charge of federal spending.”

But who knows? “Eyes Wide Shut” grossed $160,637,680. Perhaps Steele will refill the GOP’s coffers with a remake.

Highland Park Shooting Deaths Include Both Parents of Two Year Old Found at Scene of July 4th Massacre

Published

on

On Twitter Sunday afternoon in the aftermath of the July 4th Highland Park mass shooting a photo of a young boy appeared in several tweets. He was described as lost, good samaritans assumed he had become separated from his parents in the mayhem of the massacre, and people were trying to reunite him with his family.

CBS Chicago reporter Marissa Parra now reveals the boy’s name is Aiden, but he won’t be reunited with his parents: both were shot dead by the Highland Park gunman.

“Kevin McCarthy, 37, and Irina McCarthy, 35, were among the seven people [who] were killed during the mass shooting,” CBS Chicago reports.

“We took him to safety under tragic circumstances, came together to locate his grandparents, and prayed for the safety of his family,” reads the story on a GoFundMe page hoping to raise money for Aiden.

“Sadly, I need to share his name…Aiden McCarthy. And he needs more of our help,” it adds. “At two years old, Aiden is left in the unthinkable position; to grow up without his parents,” it adds. “Aiden will be cared for by his loving grandparents, Misha and Nina Levberg, and he will have a long road ahead to heal, find stability, and ultimately navigate life as an orphan. He is surrounded by a community of friends and extended family that will embrace him with love, and any means available to ensure he has everything he needs as he grows.”

‘Invasion’: Texas Lt. Gov. Likens Border Crossings to Attack on Pearl Harbor – ‘These People Are a Danger to America’

Published

on

Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, a far-right Republican, is comparing migrants crossing the border into Texas to Japan’s 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor that killed 2335 people. He is calling it an “invasion” and says that gives the state the right to “put hands on people.”

Patrick, who because of Texas’ unique structure is more powerful than the governor, told Fox News on Tuesday, “we are being invaded, and if we’re being invaded under the constitution I think that gives us the power to put hands on people and send them back. Put hands on people and send them back,” he said repeatedly.

“These people are a danger to America,” Patrick said in a rant. It was unclear if he was referring to migrants or President Joe Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The Lt. Governor, who has hawked the racist “great replacement theoryrepeatedly, and used the term “invasionrepeatedly, told Fox News that Texas is now spending $4 billion annually on the border, while Texas National Guardsmen and Texas Rangers complain of being called up to serve, having to abandon their regular jobs, for no apparent reason.

“This is the biggest danger we have, to your family,” Patrick says of the fentanyl crossing the border. “It’s all on Biden,” he claimed.

Last week Texas Governor Greg Abbott drew extensive criticism for using the deaths of more than 50 migrants packed into an 18-wheel tractor-trailer as a political opportunity to attack President Biden. Even some conservatives attacked Abbott for his inhumane remarks..

BREAKING NEWS

7th Victim of July 4th Mass Shooting Dies

Published

on

Seven people have now died as a result of a gunman opening fire from a rooftop into an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, Illinois.

The latest victim succumbed to their injuries Tuesday afternoon, NBC 5 Chicago reported. Authorities have not identified all the victims, but have said five of those who died were adults. Another 46 people were wounded.

Police on Tuesday announced that the shooter fired at least 70 rounds into the crowd, using a “high-powered rifle” that is “similar” to a AR-15. They also revealed the suspected gunman planned the attack for weeks, purchased his weapons legally, disguised himself by wearing women’s attire to “conceal his facial tattoos and  his identity,” and to “help him during the escape.” He then walked to his mother’s house after the shooting.

Law enforcement Monday evening arrested Robert Crimo, who they say is a “person of interest,” but he has not been charged.

“There are no words for the kind of monster who lies in wait and fires into a crowd of families with children celebrating a holiday with their community,” Illinois Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker said in a statement. “There are no words for the kind of evil that robs our neighbors of their hopes, their dreams, their futures. There are no words I can offer to lift the pain of those they leave behind. Please know that our state grieves with you, that MK and I grieve with you.”
