Last year after the Hurricane in Puerto Rico tons of politicians virtue signaled and took shots at President Trump for not doing enough. A bunch of them went down to the island and pretended to care too. One of them was Melrose Representative Katherine Clark; a woman who went from this.
In just 2-3 years.
Here’s what she had to say.
What a nice lady! She fixed Puerto Rico!
Well, during the government shutdown about 30 democrats traveled to PR, except this time they were taking in the sites.
That’s New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, and he and the 30 other congressmen and women who are currently there are visiting with a bunch of wealthy lobbyists and watching a showing of Hamilton.
Tangent – Hamilton is just a way for rich, white urban liberals to try to feel connected to people of color, because they think that listening to history in the form of rap music makes them woke. Tickets cost a billion dollars and the only people who can afford them are wealthy, connect, urban white people, none of whom are Trump supporters, because the cast itself lectured Mike Pence when he had the audacity to watch them.
Back to the story at hand though. Here’s what they’re doing down there…..
Some 30 Democratic lawmakers left the government shutdown behind Friday on a chartered flight to Puerto Rico for a winter retreat with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives during which they planned to see the hit Broadway show “Hamilton” and attend three parties including one with the show’s cast. Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC winter retreat in San Juan planned to meet with key officials to discuss the cleanup after Hurricane Maria at a roundtable Saturday.
But the weekend is packed with free time for the members and their families on the trip. Some 109 lobbyists and corporate executives are named in the memo, a rate of 3.6 lobbyists for every member. They include those from several big K Street firms, R.J. Reynolds, Facebook, Comcast, Amazon, PhRMA, Microsoft, Intel, Verizon, and unions such as the National Education Association. The event is taking place in a seaside resort where rooms go for $429 a night. Food is being provided.
We don’t like to get political around here, but this is hilarious. You cannot make this stuff up. Lobbyists from some of the most powerful companies in the world, including tobacco, social media, television, online sales, Big pharma, telephones, data, and even the teacher’s union, are basically bribing congressmen and women and their families with free resort trips during a government shutdown, under the guise of “checking up” on Puerto Rico. It’s one of the most mind boggling and openly corrupt things I’ve ever seen. It’s especially ironic because democrats are the party that allegedly wants to tax the rich more and go after big companies like this. Now here they are being whined and dined by them. Does anyone think Facebook will ever be regulated by the government so long as the democrats are in power? Not as long as the free trips to the Caribbean during a winter snowstorm in Washington keep coming.
Anyway, it’s supposed to be for the Latino caucus, and they haven’t made the list of who is there public because it’s really bad optics to be vacationing with a bunch of billionaire lobbyists during a government shut down. Then the governor of Puerto Rico tweeted this on January 12.
So there’s the 10 minute meeting they posed for a picture for so it would look like they were doing actual work to help out the people of Puerto Rico during the lobbyist funded vacation.
And unbeknownst to Representative Clark, the governor blew up her spot by tagging her in the picture.
Again, this was a lobbyist retreat for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Keyword – Hispanic. Katherine Clark might be the whitest person in Congress. She’s so white even Steve King says she’s his favorite coworker.
But remember last time she was in Puerto Rico she had to let everyone know she was there.
This time she told no one, because she knows it’s wrong to be there. Especially when the federal government is shut down and you’re a rich white woman from Melrose.
Here’s the best part – she tweeted this yesterday.
My office received a call from a retired federal employee in #Natick. She lives in affordable housing and because of the #TrumpShutdown, she can't obtain a statement regarding her pension as proof of her income. Now her housing is in jeaopardy. This has to stop. #EndTheShutdown
— Katherine Clark (@RepKClark) January 15, 2019
- That never happened.
- The fact that Melrose and Natick are in the same congressional district is all the proof you need that gerrymandering works both ways.
- She literally just got back from a lobbyist funded vacation and now she’s pretending to care about people who are being negatively affected by the government shutdown that she could end up voting to put up a stupid wall that will have no effect on her life whatsoever.
You can’t make this stuff up people. This is a woman who immediately runs to Twitter to virtue signal when a disaster happens that she can blame on Trump. She was embarrassed to admit she was down there this time though, so there were no tweets from PR this time around. She tried being sneaky, and no one noticed she was down there. Except for Turtleboy, because we’re always watching.
I’d love to tweet this at her but we’re banned from Twitter, because unlike her they don’t pay for me to go to the Caribbean on free vacations. So all you Turtleboy people on Twitter make sure you tag @RepKClark when you tweet this link out. We’ll see if anyone else in the media bothers covering it.
She has EMTS – Eastern Mass Teeth Syndrome.
She has the type of face that id like to take a big, sloppy, diarrhea type shit on her face. Especially after I’ve eaten carrots, carrots go through me and destroy toilet bowls. For even better results, il even chug a quart of milk, milk kills my asshole but id do it for the betterment of America!
She looks like one of Thomas Jefferson’s footmen.
Jaysus, Mary, and Joseph. You can practically smell the gingivitis-derived halitosis from here.
Government has become a broken shit filled septic tank located in the middle of a toxic waste dump. How the hell are lobbyists even allowed to latch onto this taxpayer funded vacation? They line the politicians pockets for political favors and have influence on future legislation. “By the people of the people for the people”…I call bullshit. These overpaid, over benefited fuckers are living like Kings and Queens all on our dime, all on stolen money from the working class, aka our taxes and “fees”. 78% of working people are living paycheck to paycheck and have zero savings. Debt is at an all time high. Not the political elite though, they vote themselves huge raises, live large, SS protection, benefits the working class can only dream of. Look at our own useless Governor Baker for example, a nice raise to 250K plus a 65K housing allowance. WTF. Government spending never goes down, but the basket of various taxes which pols love to hide in their word fuckery as “revenue increases” always always goes up. Our paychecks are stagnant, or an insulting 1% or 2% raise which can’t even cover inflation levels. This system is completely broken and the working man and woman is screwed. One way to try and work around this shit show, is to move to a state where you can lessen the damage and cost of living. Massachusetts sure as hell ain’t it. Future ex Massachusetts resident here, I can’t fckn wait to bail on this Dem controlled psycho circus. Republicans aren’t much better and are to blame as well, it’s all a fecal sandwich no matter which end you look at it. We need to bring back tar and feathers for the politicians and drag their useless asses kicking and screaming into the streets. Force these political parasites into an average paycheck most of us are struggling to survive on with crappy benefits, expensive health insurance and no taxpayer funded perks. Have at it.
In the private sector, many companies don’t allow employees to accept gifts from potential customers. It’s unethical. This is the exact same thing.
In the picture where she’s sitting on the floor next to the toad in the suit, I’m not sure she’s really a female. Looks like a dude in a wig.
She is completely useless. We had to reach out to her office for an issue and they did nothing. She is another import from another state that comes here to tell us how to act. Fuck her and all those like her. Why did she turn into a lesbian in the few years she’s been in MA politics?
One thing about Ted Kennedy — while I didn’t agree with his politics, if you ever had a problem and contacted his office, someone from his office got back to you and usually helped you resolve your problem. This is something John Kerry never did.
I suppose you could say, “She is full of Mullarkey”
I’d smashthat jiggly azzed beach lover
I am soooo glad I left Massachusetts for greener pastures after spending most of my life there. I am away from these really phony Marxist driven, self righteous, people and Politicians. PEOPLE WAKE UP!, Leave while you can. You are on the Titanic and its going to the bottom very fast. Like drug dealers who will hook clients on drugs to assure future business, in the future, these politicians will make it so it is impossible for you to leave. With their tax burdens that you enjoy, and future ones to be added, you will have no savings to spend on moving for relocation. Everything these politicians are doing is to make you and your families entirely reliant on the state government. WAKE UP!
Please leave your liberal ideas/leanings in Mass. if and when you do move.
Amen Bob! Got out in time and life is so much better!!!!
I know Scott brown tried to curb the insider trading but these pigs will never vote to curb their own excesses. What I want is yearly information of the people who represent, us both locally and in Washington, of their net worth. These m fers are lining their pockets at our expense. If senators and reps make 174k per year, how are they all becoming multi fuckin millionaires? Locally, why is our legislature fulltime? Why are they paid so much? They are all ( most) unemployable in the private sector, yet are all enriching themselves. Total joke and sadly it’s on us. Keep voting democrap, this one party thing is working out great. No checks and balances equals bend over and say thank you.
There isn’t any government shutdown. The government took 33% out of my paycheck just fine. Oh, I also haven’t been paid in two weeks. WAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m so happy I’m not represented by anybody from Massachusetts. My congresswoman is a millionaire from Colorado. My state senator is an African America, who is a white person from South Africa, not even from the same country as Massachusetts. My senator is from Oklahoma, an Okie down to her toes! AND my other senator lives in Maryland.
You voted for them! You got ’em!\
Oh, and so happy that bribery is actually legal now!
“The event is taking place in a seaside resort where rooms go for $429 a night. Food is being provided. ”
Food???? That’s a bridge too far.
If they wanted to go they should have gone via a C130 and stayed at base housing at a military installation. That I would have no problems with.
Nevertheless She Persisted…to work that fine old ass up and down those saucy Puerto Rican beaches. Definitely would, if anyone couldn’t tell
So much for working to end the government shutdown.
Other than furloughed government employees (who will receive back pay when the government reopens), how many of us have been personally affected by the shutdown? Probably nobody.
I didnt notice any shut down They are still taking money out of my paycheck
Now that right there is what Turtleboy needed to report on! Great job. Expose these Hypocrites!
The Democrats morphed into the party of hypocrisy. Lying, cheating, virtue-signaling, racist motherfuckers are all they are about. They are thieves disguised as politicians who have zero fucking interest in improving our country; it is all a money grab for them and nothing else. They steal taxpayers’ money to line their pockets and give to people who support them.
Funny they don’t all run for a quick vacation in Tennessee when a tornado hits . . . just sayin’ The best one is Rep. Menendez trying to get a hook up on the beach, what a low-life scum he is
Douche Menendez was just asking “saggy ass”, which one of the lobbyists had the under-age hookers.
She is the poster grandmother for the Subaru Forester campaign.
Would smash. In the doodoo chute, of course.
I’m all about denting a dookie and marking it return to sender.
All for the greater good and the tighter fit.
I LOL’d at that
