From Russia With Love: Utah Republicans Blame "Honeypots" For Lawmakers' Downfall

Republicans in Utah's state capitol have probably watched one too many James Bond movies...

After Utah lawmaker GOP Rep. Jon Stanard was forced to resign after being caught paying for sex with an escort using taxpayer money, his colleagues are urging one another to use the "buddy system" to prevent being entrapped by a "honeypot" - a spycraft term for when an attractive women lures a man into a compromising position.


The Republican Senate President Wayne Neiderhauser told colleagues there many be people with "malintent" targeting lawmakers

"We feel like it’s appropriate at this time to put everybody on alert there may be people with malintent [sic] that are trying to, for money, try to put us in a situation," Republican Senate President Wayne Niederhauser said in a meeting with reporters and Senate leadership on Friday, referring to call girl Brie Taylor’s claims to the DailyMail that GOP Rep. Jon Stanard paid her for sex twice, Fox 13 in Salt Lake City reported.

The reason for the warning was that another Republican lawmaker, Sen. Evan Vickers, claimed on Friday that a scantily clad woman tried to lure him into a hotel room the night before at the same place where the prostitute who implicated Stanard said they met for sex.

"I opened the door and there was a young lady standing there and she said ‘Hi,’ and I said, ‘Hi, who are you?’ And she said, ‘I’m your date.’

I said, ‘No, you’re not.’ She said, ‘Yes, I’m your date,'” recalled Senator Evan Vickers.

When she refused to leave, Vickers said he fled to his room, locked the door and called for help, lest he succumb to her charms.

"She was standing in front of the elevator and I said, ‘I don’t know who you are and what you’re doing here,’ and she said, ‘No, you don’t understand. I’m your date." I said, ‘No I’m not’ and walked back into the room,'” he recalled.

Niederhauser urged lawmakers to “walk in groups” and said the Senate would be reviewing its security footage in light of the incidents.

Niederhauser's No. 2 - Majority Whip Francis Gibson - agreed.

"I believe that this was more of a setup, and I also believe Sen. Vickers was caught by surprise," House Majority Whip Francis Gibson told FOX 13.

Stanard was blasted for being a hypocrite after voting for tougher penalties for prostitutes. He quit the state legislature earlier in the week. The House Speaker’s office chalked up his departure to "personal and family issues."

The possible identity of whoever might be plotting these setups was not discussed.

These guys dont have the brains to see that suddenly for the first time in their lives a gorgeous woman is not just attracted to them, but aggressively pursuing them is a red flag? Or if you cant control your urges, at least long enough to set something up on the down low from someone you solicit please resign. 


i feel tricked clicking on that sexy woman's picture then having that douches face pop up.

It is a man's biological nature to spread his seed as far and wide as possible and any woman that tries to attack me for my natural tendencies, that I make an effort to repress, is an evil hate filled selfish worthless cunt that can die. Thats on par with attacking someone for being born with no legs. Its not a choice its what you were dealt.

Its as natural as breathing we've just been conditioned to repress it for the greater good of society. The system doesnt function as well if all men roamed around unattached impregnating everything they seen. Her nature is to seek protection and security and thats ok I wont attack her for that. Im even willing to conform for the greater good, but dont demonize my nature. Im already sacrificing you selfish bitch. Restraint of appetite is an admirable quality, but dont attack me for not being perfect or for a moment of weakness. 

I hope one day men will reclaim their greatest trait, pure raw power, testosterone fueled, unapologetic dominating masculinity.

"I hope one day men will reclaim their greatest trait, pure raw power, testosterone fueled, unapologetic dominating masculinity." --^ above

I always thought this was the stupidest idea ever. I was a nature boy who lived mostly in the forest, and domination doesn't exist unless you deal with people too much, which is a filthy business since most of them are evil.

But It really never bothered me all that much if girls would try to "attack me for my natural tendencies". This was (partly) because I at least did possess control of my own self.

The man who has to even think about his masculinity doesn't have any.

Did you hide in the shadows from predators while frolicking in the forest? No? Then you dominated it obviously.

I am not referring to my masculinity. Its intact thank you. I am referring to the society I see around me of males apologizing for being men. Being told from every direction that masculinity is toxic forces one to think about it. That control over yourself is you fighting your nature. Which is fine, as I said an admirable trait to exercise restraint of appetite, but by choice. When I choose to not exercise restraint, to indulge  I find it unacceptable that I should be attacked for this, that is where I take issue.

The most ironic part is those who criticize the loudest are usually zero self disciplined heifers or compliant beta cucks.

Frankly, I was always a little scared of Bigfoot. It's even worse today, with all the videos about people vanishing in the woods!

But seriously, I was way too busy trying to figure out women to begin thinking much about masculinity. Now after all these years, I know that just about everything people told me was pure bullshit. Youth is indeed wasted on the young.

I think the hardest thing to learn is that everybody is unique, so all the girls were very different from one another. But is some ways they were the same. They mostly wanted sex or money. Plus their heads were full of wierd crap. Same deal with the men, really.

I never had much interest in "masculinity", probably because most of the guys I knew who were really concerned about it were actually psychopaths, who usually wore cologne! I despised them. I also never went near girls who wore perfume. They just had to look sexy and put out. I have always gone with the "keep it simple" attitude.

(I never let it be just pure sex, and that was expensive, but I would still go with that.)

Brownstone rules. Ask the CIA. When gay sex was normalized, they upped the ante to underage gay sex.

The point is, the deep state uses honeypots as one tool in their arsenal to compromise those in positions of power.

The next time you vote for a politician, consider their honesty and allegiance to the constitution. I would rather have a gleaner to represent me who is honest than a prince who is corrupt.

The "irony".

In "From Russia with Love", the con was run by a non state actor, SPECTRE, not the Russians. From SPECTRE with Malice aforethought.

The comparison works though, because Soros and the bankers are non state actors, a global criminal organization.

Funny thing is I just watched "From Russia with Love" the other day.

Now I see all of the plot holes and the scenes where Bond, the master British spy/assassin, helps the plot along by being rather inept at spy trade craft allowing Grant to get a jump.

An AR-7 chambered in ".25" caliber, used at over 50 yards to incapacitate a target. Bond would concealed carry the stowed AR-7 under his tailored suit coat. I owned an AR-7 and put a lot of 22. LR rounds though that AR-7 over a decade plus.

Written by MI-6. Produced at Britain's "Hollywood", Pinewood Studios. [What's with the "~wood" for the make believe worlds?]
