Well, Jordan certainly sounds like the perfect guy to enable Trump.
Their cynicism is going to leave people with no option one day.Hunter plead guilty but has no plans to resign. He's is guilty of campaign finance abuses. He's guilty of stealing his constituents money for personal use. But he remains in office and not a word from Republican leadership. Doesn't seem right, does it?
Even if not for the right reason, I think people would know not to do this in this day and age of social media.The group in question is a joke, but the issue of infiltration by extremist groups is not.
I think at some point there has to be something done to 1) Remove all extremists (don't care about their political color), 2) Start taking infiltration by extremists seriously, and 3) Reconfigure the HR process to weed these people out.
Dozens of West Virginia Corrections Officers Did the Nazi Salute for a Photo
Dozens of corrections officers in West Virginia posed for a photo in uniform while doing a nazi salute, and state officials are moving swiftly to contain the fallout.
So far, a handful of the individuals in the photo — which was published on state letterhead — have been suspended while the incident is under investigation, although Gov. Jim Justice has ordered the firing of everyone determined to have participated.
“I condemn the photo of Basic Training Class #18 in the strongest possible terms,” Justice said. “This will not be tolerated on my watch.”
The caption on the photo, which was released Thursday afternoon, reads “Hail Byrd!” a reference to the training class’ director, a spokesperson for the governor’s office told the Charleston Gazette-Mail. The training took place between Oct. 21 and Nov. 27. It's not clear whether the individuals in the picture were certified officers undergoing routine training, or whether they were trainees.
In the copy of the photo provided to VICE News, the trainees’ faces are blurred out. It’s unclear how the photo came about or how West Virginia officials found out about it.
Secretary Jeff Sandy from the Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety, who’s investigating, announced that several trainees had been suspended, and called the photo “distasteful, hurtful, disturbing, highly insensitive and completely inappropriate.”
Sandy added that the commissioner of the Department of Corrections had ordered that all hard copies of the photo be destroyed. He added that he’d informed local faith leaders about the incident and asked for their help about how best to address it.

While humorous, I really wish our tax dollars were spent in better ways than busting a guy trying to pay for sex with bad fast food and gas.Missouri Church Leader on Grindr Tried to Pay for Sex Acts with Arby’s Gift Card
Barry Poyner was known as DILF on Grindr. (Obtained by New York Daily News)
He had the meats.
A Missouri church leader and professor used Grindr to connect with students at his university and then attempted to compensate them for sexual acts using an Arby’s gift card, among other unconventional gifts.
Barry Poyner, 57, a Kirksville, Mo., resident, professor at Truman State University and a church elder with the Kirksville Church of Christ, used the handle “DILF” on Grindr to connect with male students at Truman State, according to the Daily Express. Poyner then offered to pay for sexual acts in unorthodox ways, telling an undercover officer that he “might throw in an Arby’s card" along with paying to fuel up the officer’s vehicle at a local gas station.
Poyner said he was interested in a “sugar daddy relationship” and that he’d provided partners with gift cards, clothes and cold hard cash in the past, the Daily Express reported.
Police set up the undercover account after receiving a tip about Poyner’s use of the app, which is similar to Tinder but specific to gay, bisexual and bi-curious men.
Poyner offered to pay for the fuel prior to the sex acts, and officers set up a sting at a local gas station, according to the Daily Express. Poyner attempted to flee the scene when he saw the cops, but only made it several blocks before giving up and pulling over.
When confronted, Poyner denied that he was there to provide gas, or Arby’s Reubens, in exchange for sex acts, claiming instead that he was simply trying to help out a student.
Poyner has been charged with patronizing prostitution, a misdemeanor, and faces up to six months in prison and a fine of $1,000 if convicted, the Daily Express reported. Truman State suspended Poyner, and he is due in court on Jan. 8, 2020.
