Is Mike Pence Gay?

Our apologies for the lack of posts these past few weeks, everything has been so hectic! Before we return to our regularly scheduled programming we thought we would in a mildly serious way look into a weird video of Vice President Mike Pence that is floating around the internet.

Just this afternoon an alert reader of Indy Republican sent all of us a video circulating on line that shows Vice President Mike Pence looking creepily at his master President Donald Trump. Gay comedian Marie Connor had some funny commentary on the funny but creepy way that Mike Pence is fawning over Donald Trump: 
Personally all of us here at IR don’t care what the Vice President likes to shove up his ass. That being said however it would be kind of funny, and not to surprising to find that old Mikey is gay. The reason we are not sure is because we aren’t entirely sure that Mike Pence is actually a man. We are half tempted to ask Ann Coulter if he knows whether or not Pence is a man. Time will tell if Pence is hiding the truth about who he is. 

On Twitter someone put up this photo of Pence in a Village People type cowboy outfit. In fairness we don’t know if this image is real or doctored. But it’s just to amusing not to put up: 

UPDATE: A reader sent us a clearer picture of Pence’s taste in western wear:

Donors to Mike Pence’s Legal Defense Fund Revealed. Also, Where Does Mike Pence Live?

Finally after three years of nail biting suspense, we finally know the identities of some of the people who helped pay Vice President Pence’s legal fees. Veteran readers of this blog might recall we wrote about Pence’s legal defense fund back in 2017. Thanks to USA Today writer Maureen Groppe we now have some answers. Needless to say there are some interesting characters to say the least backing old Mickey.

Maureen Groppe wrote on June 30, 2020 in an article going into more detail about Pence’s legal donors:

Vice President Mike Pence received nearly $500,000 from a dozen contributors to pay his legal bills from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, according to his annual financial disclosure report that was released Tuesday (June 29, 2020).

The biggest backers were Indiana Pacers owner Herb Simon and the California couple Michael Hayde and Laura Khouri who develop and manage apartment complexes. They each gave $100,000.

Other contributors include Pence's political adviser Marty Obst; national GOP fundraiser Ronald Weiser of Michigan; Florida real estate investor Leo Wells; Indiana businessmen Lawrence “Sonny” Beck, Paul Thrift and Tony Moravec; and Georgia businessman Brian McPheely, head of the country’s fifth largest corrugated packaging company.

The legal defense fund was created in December 2018 by Jim Atterholt, who served as Pence's chief of staff when he was Indiana's governor.

Pence hired an attorney, former U.S. Attorney Richard Cullen, after Mueller was appointed in 2017. But he was not billed until the end of Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

Expenses were paid last June and the fund was terminated in August, according to the disclosure report.

Atterholt previously told USA TODAY that he volunteered to start the fund because he doesn't believe legal bills should be the cost of public service.

Some of the names of Pence’s backers certainly have our interest peaked. A point of interest about Richard Cullen, Pence’s attorney. Is that Cullen is an old friend, coworker and godfather to one of former FBI Director James Comey’s daughters. And McGuire Woods the law firm Cullen works for is also where former Indiana Governor and Senator Evan Bayh works. For whatever reason Pence wanted a heavy hitter to represent him.

Back to some of the donors. We find it interesting that former State Representative, Indiana Department of Insurance (IDOI) Commissioner, Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission Director, and Chief of Staff to Governor Pence Jim Atterholt created Pence’s legal defense fund. Atterholt is quoted as saying he created the fund for Pence “because he doesn't believe legal bills should be the cost of public service.” That’s a side splitter Jim! You sure as hell were not concerned with legal bills when you forced out Paul Ogden at the Department of Insurance back in 2006. 

Readers of INDY REPUBLICAN, Ogden on Politics, and the late Gary Welsh’s Advance Indiana blog, know that Atterholt is not the most ethical guy in politics. Gary Welsh and Paul Ogden have documented here and here Atterholt’s dubious conduct as head of the Department of Insurance, the head of the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, and as Governor Pence’s Chief of Staff. There is an especially good post Paul Ogden did on Atterholt detailing Atterholt’s too cozy relationships with lobbyists and his willingness to commit perjury. When Pence named Atterholt to be his Chief of Staff that was an indication to all of us as to how useless he is as a public servant. 

Although Pence has never been charged with any criminal conduct to our knowledge, he does act as if he is hiding something. We cannot think of any other reason he would hire such a high powered lawyer to represent him. Also even though Pence has been Vice President since 2017, he still has cast ballots using the address of the Governor’s Mansion, where even he admitted he moved out of in 2017  He even tweeted his moving pictures: 

A recent article by Elizabeth Dye for “Above the Law” had this to say about the Pence’s use of the Governor’s mansion for voting:

“Does Governor Holcomb forward the Second Lady her Taste of Home and Good Housekeepingmagazines? Will Vice President and Mother Pence be bedding down in the governor’s mansion if voters see fit to evict them from Number One Observatory Circle in November? Will the Pences ever again pay their own electric bill, as they dutifully strive to cut the safety net out from under poor Americans?

So many questions! But apparently using their old taxpayer-funded digs, to which the Pences have no intention of returning, as their Indiana residence is perfectly legal.“

This raises some interesting questions especially since former Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White was convicted of voter fraud, all because he allegedly voted in the wrong precinct one time in his whole life. Pence and his wife apparently are allowed to vote using an address they no longer live at. Even if one buys the claim that Pence is allowed to vote from the Governor’s mansion due to his serving as Vice President, how does that extend to his wife Karen, who is not in elected office? Somebody should ask Governor Eric Holcomb if he knowingly allows the Pence’s to vote from his residence? And if so why, and also why should the Pence’s get away with blatantly flouting election law when Charlie White was shafted by Holcomb and Mitch Daniels? Do you have something to say Eric? Mike? Karen? Trump would be well advised to drop kick Pence’s ass off the ticket, otherwise the Democrats WILL go after Pence with a vengeance and help to sink Donald even further. 

Let’s all just pray that for the devils bargain that Pence has made, that he is dropped from the ticket and must pay for his sins!

The Silent and Invisible Turnout at Trump’s Tulsa Rally

Tonight President Trump is supposed to be appearing at a rally at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. According to the President interest and attendance for the rally is going to be immense. Here’s what the President had to say earlier this week about interest in his rally:

If that’s true there are going to be a lot of disappointed people, since the BOK Center’s maximum capacity is only a little upwards of 19,000 people. Given the fact of the continuing issue of COVID-19 and that six people on Trump’s staff have tested positive for the virus. We are skeptical that the rally is going to be filled to capacity. Here is a picture of the venue just 40 minutes before the rally:

We may not be rocket scientists here at the blog. But that doesn’t look like a particularly good turnout to us. Of course there might actually be more people than it appears at the rally according to an observer on Twitter:

Well we suppose it’s possible that to troll us in Never Trump land, a lot of the attendees decided to disguise themselves as empty seats. And if true that would be funny. But unless something drastically changes tonight. We are confident in say this will be a YUGE disappointment for Team Trump. 

Update: We normally wouldn’t update a post this fast, but there is just too much funny stuff to add not to. Here’s some more evidence of the lifeless, pitiful attendance at our Commander-In-Chief’s rally. Along with some good old humor at Donald and his campaign’s expense:

We swear if this is true, we are actually upset that we didn’t register for the rally and not go! Hell if there is still a way to register for this, we actually are going to do so!

The “Brad” they are referring to is Brad Parscale who is the grifter tasked with trying to save Trump’s re-election bid. No doubt he is going to get an earful from Donald!

We could keep going, but at this point we feel safe in saying the Tulsa rally is a complete dud.

Scientologist Actor Danny Masterson Charged with 3 Rapes

Danny Masterson, Actor/Scientologist AKA Accused Rapist

In a long overdue move the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office has charged Scientologist actor Danny Masterson,  with three counts of rape. To those of us who have long been watching the Cult of $cientology, we are thrilled to see Masterson finally charged in this case. Mike Rinder the former International Spokesman for the Church of Scientology, now one of the fiercest critics of the cult had this to say on his blog:

I can tell you, the victims (of Danny Masterson) are extremely happy. As are Leah (Remini) and I. They will finally have an opportunity to have their day in court. 

The details of the rape accusations against Masterson are too long and detailed to go into here. Instead we will link to Tony Ortega’s blog “Underground Bunker” for a more in depth look at all the strange twists and turns in this case. Also here is a link to Masterson’s booking documents. It’s said that the authorities have documented evidence that some in the Cult of Scientology knew about the alleged rapes. This is going to get very interesting indeed. 

Here’s some reactions to Danny Masterson’s arrest from the web:

Wrong But Funny Tuesday

Rather than write about today’s primaries. We thought we would share a funny photograph we found online. As Paul Ogden reported on President Trump’s publicity stunt at pretending to be a Christian. Trump proceeded to use tear gas, and flash bangs on protesters as he made his way to D.C.’s Saint John’s Episcopal Church also known as the “Church of the President’s”. He then went on to awkwardly try to hold a Bible in his hand.

He has been widely ridiculed for doing so by various clergy. We found this photo that shows what thoughts are actually going through Trump’s brain. Spoiler Alert: It’s anything but spirituality that he is thinking about.

Here’s an inside look into Donald Trump’s head:

Yes ladies and gentlemen the class and grace that is our Pussy Grabber in Chief!

Gary Welsh Is Still Helping Hoosiers Even Four Years After His Passing

Gary Welsh, Friend, Patriot, and Agitator

Friday May 1st, 2020 marked the four year anniversary of the passing of a great man, and patriot Gary Welsh. He was the writer of that great blog “Advance Indiana”, which is still worth reading ESPECIALLY today. Gary maybe gone physically from this world, but the torch he lit still burns. Yes he had his flaws, and God knows we often disagreed with him, but he was a great man, and a great American. And Paul Ogden, Charlie White, the IR Gang and many others were honored and still are to have been his friends. We all loved him living and we love him still. We all confess that in many ways Indy Republican and it’s writers are far inferior to Gary Welsh. But we all have our own strengths and weaknesses. And what we do is no less valuable than what our dear friend Gary did. 

We often complain about all the sin and vice that exists in the world. For there is much sin and vice. But we also must remember as it is said in Romans 5:20: “ Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more“. 

Do not let anyone tell you that you do not make a difference. Every act of kindness, everything you do that lifts up yourself and your fellow man makes a positive difference. For all the inspiration you have and continue to give us all, for the years of friendship and your writings we are eternally grateful to you Gary Welsh. We can never bring ourselves to remove our link to your blog. Someday your name will live again. And when the time is right we will all be with you again. Praise be to God! Amen and God Bless You All! And God Bless Gary Welsh!

Mike Pence Made a Deal with the Devil, and the Devil Won

Earlier today our good friend that lovable gadfly Paul Ogden wrote a great, great post about how Indianapolis gambled taxpayers money on the past and we all got hosed. By a remarkable coincidence this post spurned us on to right about another exercise in gambling stupidity. As our readers are well aware INDY REPUBLICAN like the late great Gary Welsh, loathes and despises the milquetoast, obsequious, toady that is Vice President Mike Pence. Unlike some in the Never Trump band of conservatives and republicans, we are as much Never Pence as we are Never Trump. Whether it’s old Mikey being less than honest on his voter registration, using his political pull to get his less than qualified nephew John Pence a cushy political job, or putting on his best imitation of a Christian. Vice President Mike Pence has never failed to exceed our already low expectations of his worthless butt.

Back on April 15th, 2020 Adam Wren a writer for Politico and Indianapolis Monthly wrote “Four Years Ago, Mike Pence Hated Presidential Overeach”. When recounts how Mike Pence looked uncomfortable at President Trump’s April 13th, 2020, when the President said that his authority was “total”. 

Wren reports Pence’s response to his master Trump’s proclamation of supreme power. According to Wren, Pence said: 

“Make no mistake about it,” a stone-faced Pence replied. “In the long history of this country, the authority of this country, the authority of the president of the United States during national emergencies is unquestionably plenary.”

There’s a governor who spent his time in office arguing exactly the opposite: that the states had the right to refuse Washington’s dictates, that state autonomy was a constitutional bulwark against overarching presidential power. His name was Mike Pence.

Wren makes reference to a 2011 Washington Times Op-Ed then Congressman Mike Pence wrote, defending states against the overeach of federal power. Here are a few excerpts from that op-ed, back when Pence still pretended to be a conservative:

 To ensure a lasting victory for limited government, it will not be enough simply to cut government spending. We must permanently reduce the size and scope of the federal government by restoring to the states and the people those responsibilities and resources that are rightfully theirs under the Constitution of the United States.”

“In 1982, Mr. Reagan came to Indiana to address the issue of federalism before a joint session of our state General Assembly. He used that Hoosier setting as a backdrop to announce a new presidential commission on federalism, which he called the “new phase” of the “great American experiment.” As a start, he offered to return 40 federal programs and the revenues associated with them back to the states. The commission and its work fell flat, but Mr. Reagan was right 30 years ago, and he is more right today.

Sounds light years away from his role serving in and defending an administration that has worked to undermine Congress’s oversight of the federal governmentpushed for taxpayer bailout of private businesses, and has sought to bailout American farmers after his insane tariffs have damaged them. While we believe that it is true that Pence sold his soul to Trump in the hopes of becoming president. We happen to believe that his so called Christian faith, and belief in limited government have long been a fraud that Pence has peddled in his quest for significance. In congress Pence never passed anything of any importance. It’s true he now and then pretended to support government whistleblowers. But as a congressman, governor, and now Vice President he has done less than nothing to protect whistleblowers. 

Some have attempted to defend Pence by saying he has pushed behind the scenes to reign in Trump, or that he has no choice but to obey Trump. Our response to this is “Bullshit”! The belief that Pence has tried in ANY way at all to undermine Trump, is as flimsy as the evidence for Scientology’s belief in invisible space aliens infesting our bodies. Or in other words there is NO proof of either, because like Scientology’s body thetans, the legend of Pence having a spine is a complete fabrication. As to the argument that Pence has to do as he is told by Trump. Let’s quote from the Constitution that Pence swore on a Bible to uphold:

Article I, Section III, Clause I: The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.

That is pretty much all the Constitution says about the Vice President. He cannot be fired by Trump. At the very least he could take stands against the President when he oversteps his bounds. Sure Trump would rage tweet at him, and he may not get elected to another office. But he will get a government pension, and any TRUE Christian would stand against the blasphemies uttered by the mouth of Donald Trump.
