This is the Repub campaigning for a previous seat held by a middle of the road Democrat.....🤮

A staffer at a southwestern Wisconsin library says Republican congressional candidate Derrick Van Orden threatened and intimidated her over a gay pride display.

Prairie du Chien Memorial Library page Kerrigan Trautsch told the La Crosse Tribune that Van Orden came into the library on June 17 and complained loudly about a display of books in the children’s section that address homosexuality in honor of Pride Month.

Van Orden was angry and said the books offended him, Trautsch said. He demanded to know who set up the display so he could teach them a lesson, she said.

Van Orden, who is running for Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional District that includes La Crosse, then got a library card and checked out every book from the display except for one a patron was reading, Trautsch said.

Van Orden issued the following statement in response to Trautsch’s comments:

“I unequivocally support equal rights for all Americans. This of course includes our fellow citizens who are members of the LGBTQ+ community. It is 2021 and this should not have to be stated but there are people who continue to divide us as Americans for political purposes. I will not allow them to further degrade the relationships we have as citizens.

“The complaint I filed with the Prairie du Chien public library was due to historical inaccuracies in a featured book that inaccurately painted Republicans as not inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community. The full copy of my complaint is available at the Prairie du Chien Library, please contact them directly.”

Ok, a few months ago we received an invitation to a high school graduation celebration....

It was from a cousin of my husband that we haven’t seen in years……we used to get Christmas cards from them and I would send them my hand made Valentines. About 5 years ago they quit sending Christmas cards, so they came off my Valentines card list. We were kinda surprised we even received an invite to this graduation get together. We had other plans on the day so we sent a card with a $50 bill enclosed. The get together was for July 15th……..we haven’t received a thank you note. I’m kinda pissed, think I should be?? Thanks.

Faux Noise's Gutfeld BEAT ALL OTHER LATE NIGNT SHOWS!!!! 🤮 🤮 🤮

Fox News’ 11 p.m. ET “Gutfeld!” finally beat every other late-night show — including Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” on CBS — Tuesday in total viewership and the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54. When the right-leaning program debuted in April, host Greg Gutfeld and his promotional team made no secret of their ambition to overtake late-night rivals, but Colbert blocked him from the top spot.

On Tuesday night, “Gutfeld!” took in a total average of 2.120 million viewers, with 434,000 in the key demo, on average. The “Late Show,” which has an 11:35 p.m. ET start time on CBS, grabbed an average of 1.896 million total viewers of whom 423,000 were in the demo. Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” — an NBC program which also airs at 11:35 — came next with 1.216 million total viewers, on average, and 354,000 in the demo. (It’s worth noting that “Gutfeld!” airs at 8 p.m. PT on the West Coast, and does not repeat at 11 p.m. when the broadcast networks’ late-night shows are on.)

In the 18-to-49 demo, however, Colbert still won, averaging 322,000 viewers to Gutfeld’s 281,000 and Fallon’s 255,000.
