AZ Senator Jeff Flake's Son Probably Did Not Kill Those 20 Dead Dogs *On Purpose* So That's Something Anyway

News

OK, we were kind of hoping to avoid writing about this because it is so fucking sad and we have very little funny to say about a whole bunch of dead puppies, but we're just going to roll up our sleeves and do it. Last week, upwards of 20 dogs died in an Arizona boarding house, and U.S. Senator Jeff Flake's kid, Austin, and his wife, were in charge when it happened. Also too Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the investigator. Everything is awful.


Flake [the younger] and his wife were put in charge of the Green Acre facility while the owners, Todd and MaLeisa Hughes, were out of town in Florida. [...]

The high-profile connection has only added to the mystery for dog owners who have become increasingly suspicious of the shifting explanations for the deaths as the days passed.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s office initially said that one of the dogs chewed through the air conditioning unit cord which caused the unit to stop working. The dogs, which were among 28 that were believed to have been in the small shed, died of heat exhaustion they said.

Please take a moment to think about how much you trust Sheriff Joe and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office to believe that anything -- human or puppy -- can die of heat exhaustion, given Arpaio's medieval tent torture city.

And we haven't even gotten to the part that makes it even way way way much more worse. Rather than just fessing up to what happened, neither the lesser Flake nor the owners of the facility thought it was a good idea to tell the dog owners what happened. Instead, they lied hoping we have no idea what. You had a fucking pile of dead dogs, but you figured if you just bought some time, it would all work out? What, you'd sneak in replacement dogs?

David Gillette, who is on vacation in California with his wife and two young children, lost two golden retrievers at the boarding house. He said one of the owners left a voicemail claiming their dog had run away.

“We had a dog that was a digger and we didn't know about it,” said one of the owners in the voice mail provided to FOX 10. “He dug a hole and Sherman and Parker somehow got out of the hole. We are out looking for them right now … my wife, my girls are out looking for them.”

Gillette’s dogs were found in a backyard shed with more than a dozen other dead dogs.

Oh sweet jesus in heaven. We would go full on Kill Bill if we entrusted our dogs to someone that (1) turned over responsibility to some randoms for the weekend rather than watching the dogs themselves; (2) didn't check where the dogs were for long enough that they died of heat exhaustion and (3) FUCKING LIED ABOUT IT.

At least he probably, we assume, didn't do it on purpose.

Fuck everything. Get off the Internet. Burn it all down. Go cuddle a puppy. Either one you own, or just go find one on the street. Puppies are usually down.

DHS photo (Every damn ICE pic looks like this)

Donald Trump's immigration goon squads were all set to start mass arrests and deportations of families in multiple cities Sunday, but before the raids started, he tweeted Saturday that he'd decided to delay the operation by two weeks -- to allow Democrats a chance to join Republicans in trashing US asylum law. Trump took a phone call Friday evening from Nancy Pelosi urging him to hold off on the raids, although it's also possible that internal disagreements about the operation at the Department of Homeland Security may have been part of the reason for the delay, too. In the meantime, Trump gets to terrify undocumented families some more and rant about deporting "millions," although the planned operation was actually targeted only at a couple thousand people who have already received deportation orders.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement had been gearing up to start raids in 10 US cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Baltimore, to show how tough America is, and never mind that the sweeps would certainly have led to more family separations, as ICE scooped up at least some undocumented parents of children born in the US. The news also comes while the media is reporting filthy, inhuman conditions at the border camps where newly arrested immigrants, including babies, are being packed in, leading to plenty of awkward questions about why the government suddenly wants to arrest more people in the interior of the country? (Hint: President Eichmann just announced his reelection bid.)

The Great Deporter announced the delay of the operation Saturday by Twitter, as if that were normal, then followed up with more bluster Sunday.

Kamala Harris was holding it down at the South Carolina Democratic Convention this weekend, and she wasn't just there to kick it at Clyburn's Fish Fry, hang out with Berndog Sanders, and just look extra good. No. She fucking running for President, and she's actually got a chance, unlike the many Mayo Casserole Men who keep jumping into the damn race. Why did they jump in after Kamala and Elizabeth Warren, the only people who are even running, clearly said, "We got it from here, boys"? Not sure, but regardless, it was unnecessary. Doesn't matter anyway because who is gonna remember Dadface McDorksky when Kamala is turning it the fuck out with speeches indicting Trump?

Do you believe in America? Kamala Harris believes in America, and her Saturday speech calls out for justice, and righteousness; where Barack Obama struck hopeful, dulcet, aspirational tones, Harris strikes sharp chords of urgency. To say that she read Trump the riot act would be, and is, an understatement; what she did here raised a crucial reality that some Dems refuse to see. Trump MUST be prosecuted. The Democratic nominee will wear many hats, and one of the most important of those hats is that of a prosecutor. There is a case to be made against Donald J. Trump, hell, there are so many cases, and as far as Harris is concerned, who better to make that case, but a COP? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
