A couple more weird Republican candidates slip through the screens

Friday, May 25, 2018

* First it was the Nazi running against Dan Lipinski, and now this

The Republican nominee for a US House seat in Illinois has said the September 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job and that singer Beyonce Knowles has ties to the Illuminati.

Bill Fawell is running against incumbent Democratic Rep. Cheri Bustos in Illinois’ 17th District, where she won by 20 points in 2016 even though the district also voted narrowly for Donald Trump. Fawell won his uncontested primary in March. He has not reported any fundraising to the Federal Election Commission, per publicly available records. […]

In an interview with CNN, Fawell stood by his blog posts and the theories he espoused on them. He said that Jay-Z and Beyonce expressed their support for the Illuminati in their videos, and that singer Taylor Swift had as well. […]

The Illinois Republican Party did not respond to a request for comment. […]

In a 2014 post, Fawell speculated that New York City was going to be destroyed in a false flag attack by the deep state in either the year 2016 or 2017.

Fawell lives in Galena, but is part of the influential DuPage County Fawell family. Fawell had been up against Mark Kleine in the primary. Kleine raised a ton of early money and was highly touted by the Republicans, but dropped out in January after voicing his frustration over all that fundraising pressure. That move came long after the filing deadline and left Fawell unopposed, so it’s tough to blame the GOP for this particular mess.

* Meanwhile, down-river in Rock Island County

County Republicans have asked Glen Evans, state representative candidate for the 72nd District, to withdraw from the race. […]

Court records show Mr. Evans, of Rock Island, was charged with criminal trespass and criminal contempt after violating an order of protection in December 1997. The charges were dismissed in February 1998.

In addition, Marion County, Indiana records show an outstanding warrant for Mr. Evans in 2008 after he failed to appear for a probation hearing on a charge of violating an order of protection against his wife, Erica Evans.

In November 2009, an emergency order of protection was filed by Ms. Evans in Rock Island County, following a domestic battery charge against their 5-year-old son. According to an article in the Dispatch-Argus, Mr. Evans struck his son while he was sleeping after he witnessed his son sucking his thumb.

Ms. Evans withdrew her petition in Rock Island County in October 2010. The protective order and charge was dismissed. […]

Rock Island County Clerk Karen Kinney said Mr. Evans has previously run for office as a Democrat in about 18 different local races. He has lost every election with the exception of two precinct committeeman races.

Evans is running against Rep. Mike Halpin (D-Rock Island). Like the Nazi, neither Evans nor Fawell were given a chance in Hades of winning even before their history was known.

    I don’t agree on the 9/11 bit, but it is hard to argue with Jay-Z and Beyonce being part of the Illuminati.

    Guys like this give beer and weed a bad name.

    It’s a thing, apparently, among some of our screwball cousins. Bet he has an AR-15 and plenty of load at home, too, because “freedom.”

    Where do you live? We need to find you a Republican primary to win.


  4. - A Jack - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 10:31 am:

    Maybe Falwell can introduce a bill changing the state mammal to Bigfoot.


  5. - Retired Educator - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 10:32 am:

    This is what Rauner Bucks buy. A lot of real good people are not running because they don’t want to be part of this disaster called the Republican Party. If you care about the State, feel strong about issues such as labor, you are out. They want people who will simply follow, and never try to lead.


  6. - MickJ - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 10:32 am:

    The trump party’s new normal.


  7. - 47th Ward - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 10:33 am:

    ===The Republican nominee for a US House seat in Illinois has said the September 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job and that singer Beyonce Knowles has ties to the Illuminati.===

    But where is he on the Schneider v. Shaw race?


  8. - Bigtwich - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 10:34 am:

    Ah for the good old days with Dakin Williams and Anthony R. Martin-Trigona.

    I’m a black lean democratic voter and I agree with all of this. It was an inside job. And more celebrities than Beyonce have ties to the illuminati.


  10. - G'Kar - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 10:47 am:

    Yeah, but where does Fawell stand on Yanny v Laurel?


  11. - Stark - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 10:49 am:

    Is it really a coincidence that in the Trump era there is an ever-growing share of the GOP’s candidates that believe in incredibly untrue things and conspiracy theories?


  12. - JS Mill - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 10:53 am:

    =I’m a black lean democratic voter and I agree with all of this. It was an inside job. And more celebrities than Beyonce have ties to the illuminati.=

    Is that last part snark?

    After all those LaRouche “Dems” back in the day, I’m glad it is someone else’s turn in the barrel.


  15. - 47th Ward - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 10:59 am:

    ===so it’s tough to blame the GOP for this particular mess.===

    I find it to be pretty easy. I saw almost daily press releases coming from ILGOP targeting Democrats. Meanwhile they allowed a Nazi and a Truther to run unopposed.

    Also, as you sow, so shall ye reap. The nut jobs are coming home to roost.


  16. - Annonin' - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 11:01 am:

    Maybe the Rock Island GOPies could apply the same process GOPies in kendall and GovJunk used awahile back — 6Figure gig at DOC. BTIA


  17. - don the legend - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 11:07 am:

    ==The masses only believe whats reported to be true on CNN, Fox News, ABC, NBC etc. ==

    And don’t forget to add vaccines will kill you.


  18. - a drop in - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 11:14 am:

    ==The masses only believe whats reported to be true on CNN, Fox News, ABC, NBC etc. ==

    Absolutely agree with you. Because, I took the blue pill.


  19. - Pieroge tirebiter - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 11:14 am:

    Taylor Swift on the side of evil Illuminati?
    The trouble themselves with songs about breaking up?


  20. - Montrose - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 11:33 am:

    It appears I should have made it clear I was joking about Beyonce and the Illuminati. Everyone knows its really Oprah that pulls the strings.


  21. - dbk - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 11:33 am:

    Bustos won by 20 points in 2016.

    Predictions on how she’ll do against Fawell?


  22. - wordslinger - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 11:47 am:

    ===so it’s tough to blame the GOP for this particular mess.===

    What do you mean, blame? Is there a problem? Some of those Nazis are “very fine people,” I hear.

    You reap what you sow.


  23. - FormerParatrooper - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 11:54 am:

    Doesn’t Fawell know that the Illinois illuminati association has already determined the winner for the next 4 elections? He is not on the lists to win I was given.


  24. - wordslinger - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 12:06 pm:

    –Doesn’t Fawell know that the Illinois illuminati association has already determined the winner for the next 4 elections?–

    Duh, Lisa Madigan. John Kass has been telling us that for 20 years.

    The plan is unfolding slowly, but only a blind man can’t see it.


  25. - Lester Holt’s Mustache - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 12:24 pm:

    == but dropped out in January after voicing his frustration over all that fundraising pressure. That move came long after the filing deadline and left Fawell unopposed, so it’s tough to blame the GOP for this particular mess.==

    No, it’s pretty easy to blame the GOP. Who do you think the “experts” Kleine referred to in his statement were? If they’d have stayed off his back for even a couple weeks, Kleine probably wouldn’t have dropped out.


  26. - @misterjayem - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 12:29 pm:

    “Taylor Swift on the side of evil Illuminati?”

    This photograph from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum isn’t offered as proof — it’s merely offered as evidence: https://i.imgur.com/O91ar6h.jpg

  27. - Don Gerard - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 12:59 pm:

    Lincoln, Lincoln, I’ve been thinkin’…what the HECK have you been drinkin’?


  28. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Friday, May 25, 18 @ 1:17 pm:

    With the Rothschilds controlling the weather, the Illuminati controlling Hollywood and Madigan controlling everything else, I may as well give up./s
