Austin Goss reports that Governor Kristi Noem continues to tap young conservatively brainwashed outsiders to ply her propaganda instead of hiring South Dakota talent to tell the truth. Joining official taxpayer-funded fact-twirlers Ian Fury and Amelia Joy is barely booze-legal North Carolinian turned DC-critter turned Noem clinger Chad Kubis:
According to the Governor’s official website, Chad Kubis has been brought onto the office staff as a digital director, managing “the Governor’s online communications platforms as well as photography and videography.” Kubis more recently worked on Noem’s re-election campaign this year [Austin Goss, “Noem Rounds Out Communications Staff, Adds Two from Campaign,” KSFY, 2022.12.29].
Kubis attended “classical” Christian Caldwell Academy in Greensboro, North Carolina, then got his BA in American Government and Politics from Falwell-theocratic Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. There Kubis joined the gun team and said he aspired to “work on a campaign as a social media director and later in the White House“. Thus, like his new boss Kristi Noem, he’s not focused on South Dakota.
Kubis interned for the Trump campaign in North Carolina during high school. He has since interned for four Republican Congress critters and the Republican National Committee. He directed the U.S. Senate campaign of former Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands for a few months until Mehmet Oz stole her Trump-TV thunder and Sands’s fundraising and polling sputtered.
Kubis has given money to just a few campaigns. In 2019 he gave $500 to Elliott Harding, a Republican faking independence who failed to unseat Democratic State Senator Creigh Deeds in Virginia’s 25th District. In 2020, Kubis sent $220 to dumb exploiter of Trumpism and anti-Jewish hatred (wait—the former subsumes the latter) Kanye West. And just last May, Kubis sent $100 to Texas Land Commissioner George Prescott Bush the day before he lost his bid to replace Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in that state’s primary run-off.
Only white, straight christians need apply, innit?
Digital Director? He will be the one to give the press the finger on command?
Apparently been lurking around Soo Falls for a while.
And this guy gets paid for writing this somewhat less-than-objective dribble?
He looks like pool boy material to me.
Having typed this, I finally got brave enough to look up “incel.”
People are STILL buying Under Armor crap?
Where do they find these people??? There is no one from South Dakota with the same skills he purports to have acquired at the knee of Jerry Falwell and his philandering son?? At least he’s handy with a firearm, but to what purpose???
George, if by “this guy” you mean me (and you referred to “this…dribble” and I didn’t cite any of Kubis’s writing, so I assume you mean my writing), well, no, I don’t get paid by the article or for any specific post. Readers do send donations via the Blog Tip Jar (and you are welcome to as well!), not really for any one specific article but for the overall entertainment, enlightenment, and inspiration they derive from reading these opinionated but honest and fact-based blog posts.
I take objection to the suggestion that this post was less than objective. I listed and linked to a number of facts about the incoming digital propaganda director. If you feel I stated any facts incorrectly, please do point to examples and evidence to contradict what I reported.
However objective my reporting may be, I am pretty sure that Noem will pay Kubis far more money for far less-subjective boosterism and baloney. Kubis’s current listed annual salary is $55,000. I produce more online material, and more honest material, than Kubis does, so you’d think my blog pay would crack $60K. But alas! people like Kristi Noem will pay more money to warp reality for her personal gain than regular folks will pay or can afford to pay for good, fun, useful, and occasionally pointed journalism.
Mr. George, be advised that Mr. H is not always as objective as he claims…he is afflicted with a bad case of NDS that is often apparent in his bloggings.
However, he is a very swell fellow and grudznick, too, would urge you to toss some coin in his tip bucket. Mr. H. might make $60K blogging (not tax free I am instructed, like other incomes) but he deserves it and earns it as he works harder than most. And he is right about some things, so that’s good too.
Koobie might know which end of a pistol you point away from yourself, but we’ll see if he can shoot a rooster, stand on his screaming head, wring his neck until he quits flapping against your balls, cut him open and with your bare, cold hands pull out the smelliest, bloodiest mess of God’s Heaven created guts a l’il Christer boy has ever smelled. Killing with real blood and real dying noises is what guns are for, Koobs. Not for shooting at targets with Muslim men on ’em. He wouldn’t be the first city boy to feint dead away. #grins
Mr. Rayo X is spot on the mark. The young fellow does look like a pool boy in one of those movies when the women all wore polyester bell bottoms that swished.
That’s right, Mr. George. And the grudznichts has a full-blown case of NSUS. (Noem Suck Up Syndrome).
His lips are brown, and his ‘brows are sticky.
His teeth are black, and his face is icky.
P. Aitch–recall the first time I was sent into the chokecherriy bushes and other underbrush to get the pheasant and “wring its neck”. The bird had a broken wing and was still plenty frisky. I was about 9 years old. I had no idea what to do…grabbed it and started shaking it to no avail…finally it went into shock and my uncle finished the job. Cleaning birds never bothered me after the first time of being told to reach in far enough to ‘get the lungs”. Bothered me that the entrails were still warm.
It’s almost like Ms. P.h is a stalker and has a copy of my now expired license to drive, with my picture from a few years back.
Noem likes them young. Sorry ol’ SD farts.
(LOL – this boy supported Kanye West)
For somebody who pretends to be so conservative and anti-government, Noem sure has a large staff.
Come on,this boy is a Rino. He supported a Bush over Ken Paxton. Who does that?
