Ben Shapiro Embarrasses Himself By Groveling for Supreme Court Seat

Published

on

A known #NeverTrump radio show host and blogger seems to warming up to President Donald J. Trump now that there is a soon-to-be vacant  Supreme Court seat.

Ben Shapiro, lawyer by trade and host of the “Ben Shapiro Show” made the following post on Instagram after learning that Justice Anthony Kennedy would be retiring.

“Mr. President, I’m ready for duty,” the caption reads.

But Shapiro has not always been “ready for duty.” In fact, he was a vehement #NeverTrump obstructionist during the 2016 presidential campaign.

One of the reasons Shapiro did not support Trump? He did not think Trump would make wise Supreme Court appointments. Surely, Hillary Clinton would have done much better.

“In the absence of a serious foreign policy and economic plan not involving massive tariffs – and in the absence of a rational and decent candidate – pro-Trump advocates have fallen back on the one argument and one argument only; he’ll be better for the Supreme Court,” Shapiro wrote in August 2016 in a post called “No, Trump Isn’t Going to Save the Supreme Court.

After a longwinded Hugh Hewitt-sourced argument (always a solid conservative to consult on such matters), Shapiro concluded by saying the following:

“So no, Trump won’t appoint a conservative Supreme Court justice. This is the reality-based position. But in the fantasy world where polls don’t matter, Senate procedures don’t matter, and Mitch McConnell is a fire-breathing fighter on behalf of conservatism, sure, everything will be fine.”

In light of this awful take, it’s probably best that Shapiro take of the judge’s robe, sit back down behind his desk, and continue being wrong. Trump will find a real conservative to fill the Supreme Court vacancy.

YET ANOTHER HOAX: Oregon County Commissioner Candidate Charged With Faking Racist Letter, Filing False Police Report

Another hate hoax.

Published

on

An Oregon candidate for Umatilla County commissioner has been charged with filing a false police report after Hermiston Police determined that he faked a racist letter that he claimed to have recieved. Jonathan Lopez posted an image of an anti-Latino letter supposedly sent to him after running for county commissioner, an election in which he finished in fourth place in May.

Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other (expletive) Mexicans in the area,” read the hate-filled, yet inauthentic screed. “Sincerely, America!

Lopez tried to brush over the dishonest behavior in a discussion with the East Oregonian, claiming that he was trying to make a point about “racism” in the area by performing the hoax. “I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” said the former candidate. Lopez argued he never meant to “mislead” the public.

Police Chief Jason Edmiston described Lopez as having admitted that the letter was fraudulent. “Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media. The end result is a verbal and written admission by Mr. Lopez that the letter was fabricated.

Hermiston Police also suspect Lopez of fabricating claims of serving in the U.S. Coast Guard, advertising himself as a veteran in official election documents distributed to the citizens of Umatilla County. Falsely claiming the status of a veteran for the purposes of a political campaign is a violation of the 2013 Stolen Valor Act.

The Oregon man has been charged with a single count of filing a false police report, having reported the inauthentic letter to police.

Lopez’s public Facebook profile was removed in the days following the announcement of criminal charges.
