Jane Kleeb takes pride in calling people cowards and liars.
Both words are at the front of her thesaurus, which she references frequently for her Twitter account.
Well, Jane should feel free to attribute either or both to herself after her performance — and performance couldn’t be a better term — in front of the White House.
After flying out on to DC, twice, she TWICE said that she was going to get herself arrested at the White House gates.
She extolled it extensively on her website and Twitter account and Facebook.
But specifically, she told Joe Jordan that she would get herself arrested. Here is what Jordan reported on August 21st:
Update: Despite her earlier “plans” Jane Kleeb says she decided not to be arrested Monday, although six other Nebraskans were. According to Kleeb, who says she intends to join another protest in September and “risk arrest” at that time, the six were each fined $100 but not jailed. Kleeb says instead of getting arrested she “left after the second police warning” to help the six pay their fines and handle other logistical matters.
Then on August 22nd on her Twitter account, she told a random that she was heading out to DC again in September, and she would stand in front of the gates and get arrested to show her courage to be zip-tied, and processed. “that’s the plan”, she Twittered.
But alas, Jane chickened out.
She wimped out.
She let others take the fall for her.
She is the head of the organization, but had a whole bunch of someone elses stand in for her.
Are we clear?
So, was she just a coward, or was she a LIAR as well?
Did she EVER really intend to get herself arrested at the White House gates — even though she that is exactly what she told some? We have heard from more than one of her fellow Democrats who question not only her sincerity, but her true intentions.
That is Jane’s modus operandi and we certainly are not surprised. So when you refer to Jane, you can use either “Liar Jane” or “Chicken Jane”. Pretty much interchangeable. You choose.
But hey, we are sure she had a gas of a time in DC. (Just not any time behind bars, like her “friends”.)
Oh, and Jane, nice jeans, cowboy boot and belt buckle. My! You MUST be a cowgirl straight from the Midwest!
And the Union guys continue to literally march in favor of the pipeline.
They probably would have spent multiple weeks flying back and forth to the White House to make their positions clear. But they have been, you know…WORKING.
Did we say the Dead Rat Beetle was going to be found in the way of the pipeline? Or did we say the Dead Rat Beetle was going to be found in the way of the pipeline?
Betcha duckets to DingDongs we haven’t heard the last of this story…
In his Sunday/Monday column (we aren’t really sure anymore) the LJS’s the Don Walton threw out a few estimates on what U.S. Senate candidate State Senator Deb Fischer needs to show on her quarterly campaign finance report to be “viable”.
He said he has heard anywhere between $200 – 650K.
We have heard those type of numbers as well. And, as those go, $200K and $650K are both on the low and high ends of the scales. The numbers are probably somewhere in the middle of where she “needs” to be to a) show she has sufficient base support and b) attract others to her campaign via said base.
Fischer is a relative unknown outside political circles, so she will need a bump to put her definitively in the spotlight with the other “knowns” in the race.
We too wait to see what sort of numbers she can put up.
