Oklahoma Senator/Trump Campaign Chair Caught In Hotel Room with Underage Boy

Mod: It all gets stranger by the day, I'm afraid. Not that life isn't strange enough already, but we now seem to be breaking through to bold new levels of the unusual, disturbing and entirely odd. Welcome all to Trumpworld.

Oklahoma Senator Caught In Hotel Room With Underage Boy (Patheos.com link): Family Values: Christian conservative and Republican state Senator Ralph Shortey was busted with an underage boy in his hotel room; police recommend 3 prostitution-related charges.

Senator Shortey, a member of Donald Trump’s leadership team in Oklahoma, will be charged with soliciting prostitution of a minor, prostitution within 1000 feet of a church, and transporting for the purpose of prostitution, according to a report filed by KOCO News.

Shortey was found with a teenage boy in a motel in the town of Moore on the night of March 9, after an anonymous tip was made to police requesting for a welfare check on the hotel room. Lt. Kyle Dudley told NewsOK.com:

On March 9 … officers of the Moore Police Department were contacted in reference to a welfare check at a local hotel. Responding officers found a juvenile male in a hotel room which was also occupied by an adult male. The circumstances surrounding this incident are currently under investigation and no additional information can be released at this time.

Shortey, 35, represents Oklahoma City. Elected in 2010, the senator is a prominent Christian conservative in Oklahoma politics, known for being a birther, and a Trump supporter.

Raw Story reports Shortey was the state chair of President Donald Trump’s campaign during the primary elections.

According to reports, Shortey “attended Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City in preparation for mission work in Uganda,” before beginning his political career.

Before being busted with an underage boy in his hotel room, the anti-abortion, Christian conservative made national news in 2012 when he proposed a bill that would ban human fetuses from being used in food.

Commenting on the current situation, State Democratic Chairman Mark Hammons has called for Shortey to suspend himself. In a statement Hammons said:

While a final resolution should await completion of the police investigation, Sen. Ralph Shortey owes it to his constituents and all taxpayers to suspend himself from all official activities. This is far too embarrassing to have him speak, vote or represent Oklahoma on any issue.

Bottom line: Nothing says “conservative Christian Republican family values” like a state senator caught in a hotel room with an underage boy.

Only 24% of Voters Support GOP Health Care Plan (PublicPolicyPolling.com link): PPP's newest national poll finds that there is very little support for the American Health Care Act. Only 24% of voters support it, to 49% who are opposed. Even among Republican voters only 37% are in favor of the proposal to 22% who are against it, and 41% who aren't sure one way or another. Democrats (15/71) and Independents (22/49) are more unified in their opposition to the bill than Republicans are in favor of it.

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) continues to post some of the best numbers it's ever seen, with 47% of voters in favor of it to 39% who are opposed. When voters are asked whether they'd have rather have the Affordable Care Act or the American Health Care Act in place, the Affordable Care Act wins by 20 points at 49/29. Just 32% of voters think the best path forward with the Affordable Care Act is to repeal it and start over, while 63% think it would be better to keep what works in it and fix what doesn't.

63% of voters now support an independent investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 Presidential election, to only 28% opposed to one. On a related note, 60% of voters think Russia wanted Donald Trump to win last year's election to only 16% who think it wanted Clinton to win. Among Trump voters though, 30% think Russia wanted Clinton to win the election to 28% who grant it wanted Trump to be victorious.

Trump continues to lose out in his fights with the media. Voters say that the New York Times has more credibility than him, 53/35, and that CNN has more credibility than him, 53/37.

Trump Just Held a Rally in Front of a Half-EMPTY Auditorium (OccupyDemocrats link): If no one told the current President that the election is over, maybe his crowd size will. Still preferring campaigning to governing, Trump held his latest pathetic rally in Tennessee and was faced with scores of empty seats.

A far cry from his actual campaign rallies in which, for example, a supposed 35,000 people showed up in Mobile, Alabama, President Trump couldn’t even fill up the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, with a capacity of just over 9,000. That should speak scores of Trump’s effectiveness as President, which comes just on the heels of Fox News’ latest poll showing his approval rating at an abysmal 43%, a drop of five points in the last month.

At his rally, per usual, Trump driveled on about building his big, beautiful wall (of which only 38% of Americans approve), the “fake” news media (unless we’re talking about Breitbart, the Gateway Pundit, the Conservative Treehouse, the Political Insider—dear God, let’s stop there), and his revised travel ban (already blocked by a federal judge).

He also basked in a moment of nostalgia as his dwindling audience tried to unearth their preferred call to action—the “lock her up” chant. As a friendly reminder, we’re talking about jailing a political rival, which just about tips the scales in terms of being un-American. Then again, what should we expect from the Kremlin’s puppet?

Trump Just Announced Plan To End ‘Meals On Wheels’ For Seniors (OccupyDemocrats.com link): Throughout his campaign for president and since his election, Donald Trump has promised to reduce the size of government, cut taxes, eliminate regulations and slash numerous social programs, even as he boosts defense spending by billions.

His recently released budget proposal makes it clear he’s going to follow through on those threats.

One popular program facing elimination is “Meals On Wheels,” which uses federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to mobilize volunteers, businesses and donors to provide nutrition to thousands of senior citizens on a daily basis. It supports over 5,000 community-based organizations across America, reaching people in both urban and rural areas.

The money for Meals On Wheels is part of the Older American Act, first passed in 1965 as part of LBJ’s Great Society, and endorsed by every president until Trump. The total cost, which includes other programs, is about $2 billion a year, which is less than the government hands out in fossil fuel subsidies every year.

Meals On Wheels alone costs about $3 million a year, which is the cost of just one trip to Trump’s “winter White House.”

Lance Wallnau Claims Milo Yiannopoulos ‘In The Name Of Jesus For The Kingdom Of God’ (RightWingWatch.com link): Last week, right-wing preacher Lance Wallnau appeared on the Charisma podcast with Steve Strang, where he claimed Alt-Right troll Milo Yiannopoulos for Jesus Christ and prophesied that he will one day be leading revivals on college campuses.

Wallnau said that he began listening to Yiannopoulos in the wake of the controversy regarding his comments condoning  pederasty and found him to be a brave truth-teller who “is exposing the tyranny and fascist spirit behind the progressive left.” Yiannopoulos is like “a prophetic fencer just scoring point after point,” Wallnau said, which is why the left is out to destroy him.

But the left will not destroy him, Wallnau predicted, because Yiannopoulos is going to undergo a radical religious conversion and lead an army of millennial prophets who will take on the left.

“I’m claiming Milo in the name of Jesus for the Kingdom of God,” Wallnau declared. “Just like [Donald] Trump was an unlikely candidate for us as a deliverer in the presidency … God hid himself in Trump, I think God is hiding himself in Milo and I’m calling him out in Jesus’ name to salvation.”

“Red rover, red rover, call Milo over,” he continued. “The church doesn’t want people like him, but God wants him in the church. Father, we call for Milo in Jesus’ name. We call, Lord, that You will break every cycle of destruction, every spirit that is assigned to him to destroy, distort, to wound and to lock him up. We pray for shafts of light to come from heaven into his heart, divine encounters with the Gospel in unique and unusual ways, we pray for Jesus to be made manifest in his dreams.”

Wallnau said that Yiannopoulos will be part of an “army of millennial young prophets who will expose the enemy” and prophesied that “Milo is going to be doing campus revivals in the future.”

Mod: Perhaps Wallnut will prophecy a Reverend Ralph Shortey in our future as well?

  1. It appears the Tattler is not only hostile to President Trump but to organized religion as well. I get it. So every conservative Christian is tainted by one whose found in a motel room with a teenage boy. What happened to your view that all Muslims shouldn't be smeared by the actions of a small number if terrorists. The hypocracy of the far left knows no bounds.

    3. Again, the Tattler has never claimed to be leftist. You've just marginalized yourself again. Disguise it as 'organized' if you wish but we must call out fake religions and fake news whether Muslim or Christian or Trumpian.

      You're angry at the Tattler because the Tattler exposes the lies you need to believe in.

    7. 5:37 needs to read the article before they post. The perpetrator is defined as a family values conservative Christian. The article made the connection to Christians and not me. I guess it's all Trumps fault. The far left Tattler hates, let's see, Trump, Christians, Republicans and Conservatives. This was hidden until Trump was elected and now the derangement is in full bloom.

  2. Thank you mod, FOR THE TRUTH! It is great to read a well reseached and well written news blog. There is nothing worse than those who cover themselves in the cloak of religion. There is nothing ethical about any person of any religion defending child molestation. Milo represents people who do what they want to take care of their own needs and use others to justify their actions. Orangeman is using everyone to create more power and less leadership. We are not through with learning more about disgusting behavior from the house on K Street and their often creepy two faced members.

  4. “In the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men — the sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship — those relationships in which those older men help those young boys discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, sort of rock, where they can’t speak to their parents.” - St. Milo of Breitbart

  7. As with sexual awakening among hetero youth, partners of the same age is a healthy encounter of lasting growth. Any disparate age, be it hetero or homosexual is inheritantly unequal, coerced and damaging... older women and young boys, older men and young girls...every bit as bad as the older man/young boy scenario...all depraved...of no wholesomeness what so ever.

  12. Sounds like a set up by the fake news and journalism is dead reporter desparate for a story.
    I'll bet that the underaged "boy" prostitute not yet eighteen; was paid by news reporters to seek out the Oklahoma Senator when he was trolling.
    A "phone call" was made to alert authorities! Sounds like a journalism stake out and set up.

    3. You can't seriously support the depiction of the assassination of a President, or anyone for that matter, under the guise of freedom of speech? This is pure hatred and thug behavior. There is no art or meaning to it. 8:39 is spot on, you would call for the head of anyone depicting Hillary or Obama being shot. 2:53, you are the real clown here. Post something with substance.

  19. Just saw this facebook post. If you are as enraged as I am about the Orange POTUS, please do: A small action for today --- this only takes about 30 seconds:
    Call and email Eric Schniederman at the NY AG's office who wants to investigate Trump's violations of the emoluments clause. The AG staffer made it clear that, yes, they are EAGERLY tallying up public support, and don't care whether it comes from residents of New York. THIS IS BIG. Staffer recommended we call AND email. I just called and left a message - (212) 416-6218. Email address is nyag.consumerbureau@ag.ny.gov, and message needs only read: "Please investigate President Trump's possible violations of the Emoluments Clause."
