1st Order of business?

Tax breaks for for the commercial real estate brokers. Salina? Lived there most of my early life..be interesting to hear who has his leash.

Republican Gov. Jeff Colyer selected a Salina commercial real estate broker and former congressional candidate Tuesday night to serve as the state’s lieutenant governor and create a balanced rural-urban ticket for the 2018 gubernatorial campaign.

Colyer, barely two weeks into his reign as Kansas governor, chose Tracey Mann, to be his state government understudy and to be responsible for whipping up votes in rural Kansas ahead of the crowded GOP primary in August.

With the pick, Colyer avoided an alliance with a person closely associated with former Gov. Sam Brownback, who exited Kansas politics as one of the nation’s most unpopular chief executives.

“Tracey has been a leader on economic development and rural issues in Kansas for years,” Colyer said. “I’m really excited to have Tracey join the team.”
Mann has never held elective office, but ran in the Republican Party’s primary during 2010 for the 1st District congressional seat. In that race, he grabbed national headlines for saying twice within a span of 30 days that President Barack Obama needed to produce a birth certificate that clearly affirmed his U.S. citizenship. There is irrefutable evidence that Hawaii is Obama’s place of birth.

Chris Koboke..still in the news...

wasn't it snotty scotty walker..that had some of his people abusing funds for their vets?

Kris Kobach on board of veterans group not using money for vets..

A business watchdog has found that only a small portion of money from a Missouri-based veterans’ group that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is associated with actually goes toward helping veterans.

Kobach is listed as a member of the advisory board for Veterans in Defense of Liberty, a Springfield, Mo.,-based nonprofit with a stated mission of upholding the Constitution, the Kansas City Star reports. Kobach is also running for governor of Kansas.

The Better Business Bureau released a report this week giving the group a failing grade because only a small fraction of the nonprofit’s money goes toward veterans’ issues.

“This is the first I’ve heard of any suggestion that the monies raised by the charity aren’t going to the various causes for veterans,” Kobach said Thursday.

It is gone, but never forget..

what a swine brownback was.

Jeff Colyer was sworn in as governor Wednesday replacing Sam Brownback, who left to become ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom. Colyer promised “a new day in Kansas.”

Republican Jeffrey William Colyer promised a “new day in Kansas” Wednesday shortly after he was sworn in as Kansas’ 47th governor to replace Sam Brownback, who stepped down to become President Donald Trump’s ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom.


Our spiritual leader. Holy @hit!

"Gov. Sam Brownback thanked former congressional colleagues Friday for nudging the U.S. Senate hard enough to move on his nomination to be President Donald Trump’s ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom.

Brownback, who has awaited this moment since nominated in July, said he appreciated “hard work” of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Kansas Sens. Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts to trigger preliminary action on the Senate floor.

“Pleased that the U.S. Senate is moving forward with my nomination,” the Republican governor said.

Brownback’s nomination is expected to be put to a cloture vote Friday — earlier, if Democrats don’t object — to set the stage for a final decision by the Senate. With 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats, a party-line vote in the Senate would assure confirmation of Brownback."

Democrats will delay Brownback vote over gay rights record..

Religious freedom for everyone sounds great. Not gonna
happen in some places. at least not right away. But the job
description is as distant from an asshole like brownback as
trump is a leader. Numbers are against sam having to look for
a real job..walmart greeting dude...


Senate Democrats will delay the confirmation of Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback as ambassador for religious liberty because of his record on gay rights.

Democrats plan to force Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to take extra procedural steps on the Brownback nomination in order to get him confirmed, a Democratic aide told The Kansas City Star.

Senate Democrats, though, will have trouble blocking a final confirmation vote. Under current rules, executive appointees such as Brownback only need 51 votes to overcome additional hurdles for confirmation. Republicans control 52 of the Senate’s 100 seats.

Despite support from the two senators from Kansas, the U.S. Senate on Wednesday voted against another health care proposal aimed at dismantling the 2010 Affordable Care Act.

Asshats...both. Knew that before they
voted for eliminating Obamas health care bill.
Remember this next time you vote....They
don't care about people suffering.

Our sos...continuing the tradition

of making an ass of itself

"WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach was fined $1,000 on Friday by a federal magistrate judge for "patently misleading representations" he made to the court about the contents of a document he was photographed taking into a November meeting with then President-elect Donald Trump.

"The court agrees that the defendant's deceptive conduct and lack of candor warrant the imposition of sanctions," U.S. Magistrate Judge James O'Harawrote in his ruling.

Neither Kobach nor the ACLU immediately responded to requests for comment.

The dispute stems from efforts by the American Civil Liberties Union to obtain a document that The Associated Pressphotographed Kobach taking into his meeting with Trump referencing a possible amendment to the National Voting Registration Act."
