McConnell

MOVE TO ACQUIT? Mitch McConnell hints at Senate strategy: “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is expected to hold a final vote to acquit President Donald Trump, should he be impeached, when a majority of senators believe his trial has run its course instead of holding a vote on dismissing the articles of impeachment, two Republican senators told CNN on Wednesday.Republicans want to have a vote on acquittal — to clear the President of the charges against him — not simply rely on a 51-vote threshold procedural motion to dismiss the hotly disputed case.” DEMOCRAT JOE MANCHIN. Torn on voting to convict

CLASS OF ’24. Felicity Huffman’s daughter got into Vassar College without bribery.

SLAY. Slay Models, the world’s first exclusively transgender model agency, is looking for transgender models: “We are looking for star quality,” said Cecilio Asuncion, founder and director of Slay Model Management. “It takes more than beauty to be a top model. It takes determination, a healthy outlook and a visceral understanding that she is a model first, and a trans woman second.” February 15, 2020 at One Culver in Los Angeles.

STOCKING (FACIAL) STUFFERS. Kris Jenner is giving friends and family Botox for Christmas.

BUZZFEED. You wanted same-sex marriage, you now have Pete Buttigieg. “To a lot of progressive queer people, Buttigieg’s campaign symbolizes everything the marriage-focused mainstream gay rights movement has failed to deliver.”

AMERICABLOG RESPONSE. Pete Buttigieg is a bad gay? Here we go again. ‘Pete’s other “problem,” that he’s a gay white man, has deep roots in the woker-than-thou left. Lots of newer LGBT activists have outright animus towards white gay men, claiming, among other things, that white gay men never did anything for the LGBT movement when, in many cases, they carried the lion’s share of the activist burden, including sacrificing their lives.’

MAYOR PETE ON CBS THIS MORNING: “In Iowa, he’s in a tight race with the top candidates, and a poll in New Hampshire has him leading. Buttigieg joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss the impeachment hearings, what his record shows in helping minority communities, and how he plans to tackle the student debt crisis.”

PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. Impeach Donald Trump. “Such an act of tyranny is what the Constitution was created to protect against. That is why this impeachment process is urgent and should move forward without delay.”

ERIC HOLDER. Bill Barr should resign as Attorney General: “As a former U.S. attorney general, I am reluctant to publicly criticize my successors. I respect the office and understand just how tough the job can be. But recently, Attorney General William P. Barr has made a series of public statements and taken actions that are so plainly ideological, so nakedly partisan and so deeply inappropriate for America’s chief law enforcement official that they demand a response from someone who held the same office.”

Three men used Grindr to target brutal homophobic attacks

Three teenagers in the United Kingdom will spend a collective 37 years in prison for a series of attacks on gay men. The three used the gay dating app Grindr to attack, rob and torture their victims.

Metro UK reports Mohammed Sohail Khan, Qaasim Ahmad, and Muhammad Umar, each aged 18, targeted men in Birmingham with fake Grindr profiles. When their dates arrived, the three men would attack, tieing their victims up, beating and shouting homophobic slurs at them. One victim reported having a sock stuffed in his mouth before being forced to walk through dog feces. Another reported the three men urinating on him. A third underwent sexual molestation, with the three attackers filming his genitals.

“As the punches hit my head and face I was expecting to be stabbed at any moment, it felt like hours as I was forced to lay face down in the dirt with my hands and legs bound not knowing if I would ever see my family again,” one victim said in court.

The series of attacks happened beginning in January of this year. Police used DNA evidence, surveillance video and ATM records to link Khan, Ahmad & Umar to the crimes. Khan & Ahmad each received 13-year prison sentences, while Umar received 11 years and three months.

“I know it took the four victims, in this case, a huge amount of bravery and courage to come forward and support the criminal justice process through to trial – and I commend them for doing so,” said police Chief Inspector Ian Ingram of the case. “Their evidence enabled us to launch a full-scale investigation and a build a strong case, which ultimately brought the offenders to justice, and has undoubtedly prevented many other people from becoming a victim.”

Police have further stated that they suspect the gang may have also assaulted other men who remain afraid to come forward with their stories.

One of the year’s most homoerotic films came from country where LGBTQ people have no legal rights

“Temblores” (Tremors) is a Spanish-language film by Jayro Bustamante. Produced and set in Guatemala City, the film is being praised by critics and fans alike for being one of the first to show queer representation in the socially conservative country.

It centers around Pablo, a married man from an ultra-religious family, coming to terms with his sexuality after meeting a free-spirited masseur named Francisco. He is later urged by his wife and parents to undergo conversion therapy or risk losing his children.

“Gay people are born this way,” Juan Pablo Olyslager, who plays Pablo in the film, tells Metro Weekly. “I don’t think they are made. So there’s nothing to change according to my view. I think [these therapies] are ridiculous, they are humiliating, and they can have the potential to destroy somebody.”

AdBridg.cmd.push(function() AdBridg.display(“div-gpt-ad-inarticle1”); );

Olyslager says he hopes the films helps more people realize this, particularly audiences in Guatemala, where there are no legal protections for LGBTQ people.

“I would like to reduce prejudgment, or judgments on gay people,” he says. “I think the movie depicts a real human being with real struggles, who really does love somebody of the same sex, and is going through these struggles.”
