In a surprising show of bi-partisanship and  “fairness’ last week, Rep. Emanuel Cleaver voted no during a vaite engineered by House Democrats to impach the president.

“I realize that Trump’s presidency generates anger,” the Missouri Democrat said in a statement. “I will remind folk that there is only one letter of the alphabet that separates anger from danger. My vote … was an issue of fairness.”

Cleaver said he would re-examine his position once Special Counsel Robert Mueller completes his investigation of the president and his associates. Read more…

Sen. Dixon Won’t Vote to Expel Chappelle-Nadal While Rep. Mark Matthieson Remains Silent on Controversy

August 31st, 2017 by mopns_admin ·

Term limited state Senator Bob Dixon has thrown out a lifeline to his embattled senate colleague Maria Chappelle Nadal. Citing Jesus and the great Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius. Senator Dixon believes it is hypocritical and shows a lack of compassion to throw out a public official who advocates for the assassination of the president of the United States.

“The wise Emperor of Rome, Marcus Aurelius, once cautioned, ‘Whenever you are about to find fault with someone, ask yourself the following question: What fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticize?”

“One hundred and fifty years before, a man from Galilee instructed an angry crowd to commence the stoning of a woman who had broken the ancient law, saying, ‘Whomever among you who has not sinned cast the first stone.’ A few moments, later he turned to her and said, ‘Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?’”

Senator Chappelle Nadal has apologized and has been forgiven by many BUT there are still consequences for her actions and she should be expelled from the state senate. Every leader from both sides of the aisle, and scores of her legislative collegaues from both sides of the aisle, have condemmed Senator Chappelle-Nadal – except one notable exception – Rep. Mark Matthieson. Why is that? Rep. Mathiessen was a big supporter of Chappelle Nadal’s ill fated Bridgeton buyout plan.

Is There Something in the Water? Mo Pol Suggests “Lynching” Confederate Monument Vandals

August 31st, 2017 by mopns_admin ·

Mo. state Rep. Warren Love
Well, we have another example of political Foot-In-Mouth disease, this time from the Republican side of the Missouri legislative chamber. Mo state Rep. Warren Love has created a firestorm with his call on (you guessed it) Facebook for the “lynching” of vandals who recently poured paint on a Confederate monument in his district.

“This is totally against the law,” Love wrote. “I hope they are found & hung from a tall tree with a long rope.”

Of course after this controversy erupted and spread like a prarie fire, Rep. Love toned down his rhetoric and said he was in fact NOT calling for anyone to be lynched for the offense.

“Oh no,” he said. “Hell no!” “That was an exaggerated statement that, you know, a lot of times is used in the western world when somebody does a crime or commits theft. … That’s just a western term and I’m very much a western man. … You know, I wear a coat. You know, I dress western. And, you know, I’m the cowboy of the Capitol. “I guess I could’ve put on there that, you know, they were yellow-bellied, low-life or whatever.”

Like most people haven’t spent a lot of time around African Americans, Rep. Love resorted to the old stand by line of “Some of my best friends are Black – even if I only see them five months out of the year and during an occassional soft ball game!”

“Listen, I’ve got good friends in the Capitol,” Love said. “Me and Tommie Pierson (a black St. Louis County Democrat) was co-captains of a softball team. And you can ask anybody in that Capitol. I probably have a better relationship with the minorities than anybody up there at the Legislature. I play softball with them, I’m good friends with them. I, you know, I sit on the same side of the aisle with them and they’re on my softball team,” Love said. “I am definitely not that word,” Love said of the word “racist.” I don’t even like to use that word.” Read more…

It looks like the only African American Republican member of the legislature won’t be playing softball with Rep. Love any time soon.

Video: “Comrade Claire”

July 10th, 2017 by mopns_admin ·

Free Beacon:

McCaskill was asked during a town hall this week why she misled voters about her meetings with the ambassador, and then asked again as she left the town hall by members of the Missouri Republican Party, who carried “Comrade Claire” signs and waved Russian flags during the town hall. “Senator McCaskill, do you care to comment on why you lied to Missourians about meeting with the Russian ambassador?” asked a member of the state party, who was ignored by McCaskill. The sign quoted McCaskill’s initial lie that she had “no call or meeting w/ Russian ambassador.” Other signs brought by the party read “Comrade Claire, I hope you enjoyed the caviar, Love Sergey,” an apparent reference to the black-tie reception McCaskill attended at Kislyak’s residence.
