WNBA team owner Kelly Loeffler will be appointed to the U.S. Senate at the end of the year to replace departing Sen. Johnny Isakson, and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp will make the official announcement on Wednesday.
Loeffler is getting picked over President Donald Trump’s preferred choice, Rep. Doug Collins, who has a strong conservative voting record in the U.S. House. In addition to being a long-time Democratic Party donor and serving on the board of the state’s largest abortion provider, Loeffler also has benefited from crony capitalism due to her association with the violent lesbianic thugs of the WNBA.
The WNBA franchise co-owned by Loeffler, the Atlanta Dream, will be hosted in the Gateway Center Arena starting in 2020. This new venue cost the taxpayers $46.5 million, and stands as a heinous example of cronyism that serves no benefit to the people.
Sports columnist Tom Joyce wrote an op/ed with the Washington Examiner explaining how Loeffler’s grift is harmful to the public at large. He explained that the city of College Park, the small city which hosts the arena, looted their general fund of $9 million to build the facility. Mayor Jack Longino admits that the stadium will not make money for the town, but Loeffler and other team owners will certainly cash out from it.
“We’re not doing it because we’re building stupid arenas for professional teams,” said John Duke, who unsuccessfully challenged Longino for Mayor in November. “No business person would ever take this deal.”
According to the work of Stanford economist Roger Noll, sports stadiums are always terrible investments for the taxpayer, and would be paid for otherwise by the rich team owners. Joyce notes that Loeffler’s unprofitable WNBA team is being doubly-subsidized, making her a welfare queen par excellence.
“Part of the reason why the WNBA exists today is because it is subsidized by the NBA. The league as a whole has never made a profit. Interest in the league is low, with league-wide regular season attendance falling in the past two seasons,” Joyce wrote.
“Calling a taxpayer-funded arena home is nothing new for the Dream. Gateway Center Arena will be the fourth publicly funded stadium that the Dream has called home during Loeffler’s ownership,” he added.
For pilfering the taxpayer, Loeffler will now be rewarded with a U.S. Senate seat. Even though President Trump is now its figurehead, the Republican Party establishment continues its unethical and disreputable practices.
PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks
The Democrat complained about masks.
New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.
Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”
This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.
Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.
Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
