Ted Cruz Lies to Fox News that Democrats are ‘Encouraging Violence’ After Roe v Wade Ruling

In the wake of the appalling assault on the Constitution by the Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe vs Wade, Republicans and their mouthpieces in right-wing media immediately set out to malign pro-choice advocates and protesters. It was a coordinated strategy to deflect from the fact that the vast majority of the American people oppose the decision and are committed to correcting the historic and unprecedented legal blunder.

Fox News, Bullshit Factory

Naturally, Fox News was at the forefront of this propaganda crusade to slander peaceful protesters. And part of their plan included bringing on Sen. Ted Cruz to fabricate a phony chronicle of events. Cruz, of course, complied by spinning this utterly fictional account…

“I think there’s a real risk of violence. We’ve seen multiple Democrats now, including Maxine Waters, before that Chuck Schumer, before that the Biden White House, effectively encouraging violence. Chuck Schumer stood on the steps of the Supreme Court and threatened Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch by name.”

There was no truth to anything Cruz was saying. Certainly no Democrats were doing anything that could be characterized as “encouraging violence.” Cruz’s comments were all out of context references from months or years ago. For instance, Chuck Schumer, reacting to a Court hearing on an abortion case, said in March of 2020 that Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh “have released the whirlwind and will pay the price.” That was more than two years ago. And Schumer even acknowledged at the time that “I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. […] My point was there would be political consequences.”

That concession was something that you would never hear from the Republicans fomenting violence, such as what occurred during the insurrection on January 6, 2021. But Cruz dredged up this old remark specifically to defame the pro-choice movement.

Cruz was joined in this campaign by Tucker Carlson who, following the Roe decision, said on his program that “Today you saw several elected members of Congress call for insurrection.” No, actually, no one saw that. But Carlson’s canard is reminiscent of his preposterous assertion that Stephen Colbert had engaged in insurrection when some of his staff performed a comedy routine in Washington.

Since the ruling was announced, the manufactured narrative from the ultra-MAGA politicians and pundits that pro-choice activists are engaging in an “insurrection” has just become more intense and bizarre. It’s a deliberately dishonest strategy contrived to both malign peaceful protesters and to trivialize the term that describes Donald Trump’s attempted coup on January 6th. And the GOP is stridently going even farther down the rabid hole. What follows are some examples of the wholly dishonest ravings of a desperate band of bullshitters:

Tucker Carlson Smears Companies that Cover Abortion Travel Costs as Being ‘Against Families’

The Supreme Court’s ruling that overturned Roe vs Wade is an unprecedented decision that, for the first time ever, removed a Constitutional right that had been affirmed numerous times for more than fifty years. And the judges responsible for the decision were put on the court by Donald Trump, who lost the popular vote twice and tried to overthrow the U.S. government.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, STFU

The American people are rarely more united on an issue than they are about preserving the reproductive choice rights provided by Roe vs Wade. Nevertheless, the Republican, anti-democratic forces in Washington managed to subvert the people’s will in order to impose a religious standard on the nation, in place of a legal one.

On Friday night Carlson launched a new, and patently offensive line of attack. He lashed out at private companies seeking to provide benefits to help employees get the healthcare they need when dealing with pregnancy and family planning. In states where abortion is now – or will soon be – illegal, these benefits will reimburse employees for costs to travel to states where their health needs can be met. And despite conservatives ordinarily supporting free market positions, Carlson is hypocritically attacking companies for trying to do what they believe is best for their employees and their business. He raged that…

“It’s obvious why it’s so important to America’s corporations, almost all of whom immediately weighed in to say, ‘We’ll fly you to get an abortion at the state of your choice.’ Why? Well, of course, employees without families are loyal to the company and, of course, it’s much cheaper to pay for an abortion than it is to pay for maternity leave, or an extra name on the insurance policy. So, it’s all about the money for corporate America. It always is. Families are bad for big corporations, therefore they’re against families.”

That is glaringly wrong for so many reasons, Let’s begin with the fact that it isn’t necessarily cheaper to insure an employee who seeks an abortion. For one thing, Carlson is assuming that everyone who gets an abortion doesn’t already have a family. That’s false. It’s also flagrantly false to suggest that employees without families – by which he means children – are more loyal to their employer. As a frozen food empire trust fund baby, whose father worked for the State Department, Carlson has never had a job that wasn’t handed to him by virtue of his wealth and elite status. Where do you suppose his loyalties lie?

More importantly, Carlson is making the repulsive argument that companies make employment decisions based on what it might cost to provide an employee with healthcare. By his own perverse logic, companies would (or should?) discriminate against an applicant who is diabetic, or has congenital heart defects, or suffers any other health challenges. Even those with families.

Carlson’s conclusion that corporations are “against families,” is not only exceedingly stupid, it ignores the fact that most corporate executives have families. He is also ignoring the broad diversity of the companies that offer the travel cost benefits. They include Meta (Facebook), Dick’s Sporting Goods, Amazon, Levi Strauss, JPMorgan Chase, Starbucks, and Tesla. Among media companies offering this benefit are Disney (ABC News), Warner Bros. Discovery (CNN), and Comcast (NBC News and MSNBC).

Conspicuously absent from that list is Fox News. Either they do not offer the benefit, or they don’t want anyone to know that they do and declined to respond to inquiries. So they are either callously indifferent to their employees’ well being, or they’re raging hypocrites. And it wouldn’t surprise anyone if it turns out to be both. After all, Fox News – and especially Tucker Carlson – have demonstrated that they don’t care about the health of their employees, or their viewers. Carlson recently endorsed nicotine addiction. No, really! And when it comes to COVID, Carlson was its biggest advocate. Those aren’t exactly pro-health, or pro-employee policies.

Trump is Freaking Out that the January 6th Hearings are So Effectively Illuminating His Crimes

The creaky gears of Donald Trump’s primitive mental machinery have always made it simple to read his poorly veiled motives and fear driven objectives. What he is most afraid of invariably consumes his private thoughts and public outbursts. He is an open children’s book that consists mainly of stick pictures and infantile temper tantrums.

Donald Trump Angry

This has never been more apparent than in his reactions to the hearings being conducted by the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that he invited. In just two weeks the Committee has exposed a multitude of ethical, moral, and legal breaches that would crush the career of any politician who hadn’t been transformed into a cartoonish cult messiah by a small but vocal congregation of crackpots. And the Committee is clearly having a profound impact on the American people.

RELATED: The January 6th Hearings are Driving Public Opinion – And Trump’s Latest Delusional Meltdown

Consequently, Trump has taken to his miserably failing social media debacle, TRUTH Social, to vent his outrage. And not surprisingly, his tirades are typically anti-social and utterly devoid of any “truth” He began by complaining that…

“The only thing not discussed by the Unselects, in any way, shape, or form, is the irrefutable evidence of massive and totally pervasive ELECTION FRAUD & IRREGULARITIES which took place during the 2020 Presidential Election. They refuse to go there.”

First of all, that’s blatantly false. The Committee’s mandate from the start has been to discuss Trump’s flagrantly fallacious claims of election fraud. And they have done so in every session. If they haven’t discussed any “irrefutable evidence” of such fraud, it’s just because there isn’t any. And if Trump wants more representation of his side, he might want to agree to testify, or stop ordering his minions not to do so. Then Trump continued to whine

““What about the massive ballot stuffing shown, on Government Tape, by the highly respected and credible Patriots of Truth to Vote (2000 Mules)?”

Not only was there no evidence of any ballot stuffing, but Trump can’t even get the name of the highly disreputable and non-credible group right. (It’s “True the Vote”). And the crocumentary “2,000 Mules” by a convicted election fraudster, has been widely debunked. But Trump still wasn’t done yowling. He felt compelled to utter more falsehoods about the Committee, lying that…

“Their lead investigator just quit, they cancelled or postponed future hearings, the T.V. Ratings are absolutely abysmal, and Shifty Schiff continues his sanctimonious ‘interviews’ just as though he were talking about his first four failed hoaxes!”

Trump is trying desperately to malign the Committee with ludicrous assertions that he thinks will make it look bad. Let’s start with his charge that the lead investigator quit. To Trump that signals some sort of trouble. However, the investigator, John Wood, is actually a republican who is exploring a senate primary bid in Missouri to challenge the disgraced GOP candidate and “RINO hunter,” Eric Greitens, who even Republicans are embarrassed by.

Then Trump notes that future Committee hearings were postponed (not canceled). That’s true. But once again, it isn’t because of problems with the proceedings. In fact, it’s due to the Committee receiving so much new evidence against against Trump that they need more time to process it. Contrary to Trump’s phony fulminations, this will actually result in extending the hearings, and their devastating affect on Trump, into July.

Finally, Trump is deliberately lying about the TV ratings. Every session of the Committee’s hearings have garnered huge audiences. The first session, that aired in primetime, had higher ratings than the NBA championship game the night before. And the American people are paying attention. In a significant increase since the last poll, nearly 6 in 10 Americans say that Trump should charged criminally for his role in the Capitol Hill riots.

RELATED: January 6th Hearing Ratings are Burning Up Trump and His Right-Wing Media Liars

Making matters worse for Trump, even longtime conservative pollster, Frank Luntz, has noticed that “Trump is being damaged by the House Select Committee hearings.”

“Speaking on CNN, Luntz pointed to polling showing that Trump’s unfavorability among voters has spiked over the course of the hearings as evidence that they’re leaving a mark.”

The longer these hearings go on, the more proof of Trump’s criminality will be exposed, and the more people will be repulsed by his assault on democracy and the Constitution. And the only thing his petulant whining will accomplish will be to make him look all the more guilty, pathetic, and desperate. So … Please proceed, Donald.

Tucker Carlson Boldly Endorses Nicotine Addiction, Because Without It You’re Fat and Passive

For most his tenure at Fox News, Tucker Carlson has proven himself to be an immanent threat to the health and well being of the American people. His seething white nationalism, his support for domestic terrorists, and his relentless promulgation of lies and propaganda have set him apart from even his conspiracy theory confederates at Fox News.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, M&M

Carlson’s flagrant distortions of reality are frequently dangerous in direct ways. He has been a staunch opponent of COVID vaccines, likely resulting in severe illness and death for many of his dimwitted viewers who were foolish enough to follow his ignorant advice. And he has embraced Russian dictator Vladimir Putin’s brand of totalitarianism.

RELATED: Fox News Senior Putin Apologist, Tucker Carlson, Pleads to Keep the Russian Dictator in Power

On Wednesday night Carlson found a brand new way to make Americans sicker. He literally came out in favor of smoking cigarettes and/or vaping, a popular and lethal pastime for teenagers. Carlson’s rant was triggered by the news that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is cracking down on nicotine delivery products like those marketed (to children) by Juul. Carlson, of course, has a knee-jerk opposition to anything done by the Biden administration, no matter how unarguably beneficial. So Carlson unleashed the following idiotic harangue…

“Yesterday the FDA announced it’s planning to remove virtually all nicotine from cigarettes. Now nicotine is not the thing that gives you cancer. Nicotine is the thing – it’s addictive, but it also increases mental acuity. But they’ve taken that out. According to the Wall Street Journal, the agency will also ban Juul e-cigarettes. Now what happens when you get off nicotine? Well, your testosterone levels plummet, and you gain weight. Both of which the administration is for because you become more passive and easier to control.”

Where to start? How about with the fact that nicotine is not merely addictive, its addictive properties are artificially enhanced in cigarettes by tobacco companies to make their victims (aka customers) more physically dependent on them. Secondly, to the extent that nicotine affects mental acuity, it acts as a stimulant that has essentially the same temporary affect as cocaine or methamphetamines. Is Carlson in favor of those as well?

Carlson then asserts that when nicotine is stopped it results in a decline in testosterone. That’s false. In fact, some studies show that nicotine can actually depress testosterone levels and are “another main cause of erectile dysfunction.” Furthermore, smokers, compared to nonsmokers, had greater amounts of age-related brain volume loss.” Which would explain Sean Hannity…

Carlson also makes the preposterous allegation that the Biden administration wants people to be obese and to have lower levels of testosterone, because that would make them “more passive and easier to control.” WHAT?

Who wants to tell Carlson that nine of the top ten most obese states in the U.S. are in the blood red South? Does that mean that Republicans have manipulated America’s fattest populations in order to control them? Not surprisingly, the most populous – and bluest – states in the country (New York, California, Massachusetts) are among the ten least obese.

Carlson has been on a testosterone binge lately. He recently aired a segment on how distraught he is that the cartoon M&Ms were no longer “sexy” to him. He also produced a crocumentary that he called “The End of Men.,” which he described saying that “One of the biggest stories in our lifetimes is the total collapse of testosterone levels in American men,” and that it was “changing the way people are at the most fundamental level.”

RELATED: Macho Poser Tucker Carlson’s Journey from ‘Dancing With the Stars’ to ‘The End of Men’

True to form, almost everything in his film was blatantly false. Carlson’s fixation on testosterone is just the latest example of his hatred for women and his innate fear of inadequacy. And he is deftly injecting it into his sweaty obsession with lambasting all things Biden. The result being an advocacy of a deadly and addictive narcotic that is causing untold suffering among American adults and children. And this is something that Fox News, and its executive management, thinks is acceptable television?

Judge Rules that Fox News Acted With ‘Actual Malice’ By Spreading Trump’s Election Fraud Lies

The hearings of the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection incited by Donald Trump have been effectively exposing the role of Trump and his confederates in politics and the press. It is now an inescapable fact that they knew that their attempts to undermine democracy and overturn the election were illegal and they just didn’t care.

Donald Trump, Fox News, Lies

On Tuesday a judge confirmed that Fox News was among those who knowingly spread lies and disinformation regarding the 2020 presidential election. The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems who allege that Fox News (and Newsmax and One America News Network) defamed them with blatantly false reports of election fraud. The ruling rejected Fox’s motion to dismiss the case, and explicitly cited the network’s owners as justification to allow the suit to proceed. According to Bloomberg News

“Fox News’s parent company can be sued by a voting-machine maker because Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch may have acted with “actual malice” in directing the network to broadcast conspiracy theories alleging the 2020 presidential election was rigged against Donald Trump. […]

“Dominion cited in its suit a report that Rupert Murdoch spoke with Trump a few days after the election ‘and informed him that he had lost,’ the judge noted.”

The judge further noted that…

“‘These allegations support a reasonable inference that Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch either knew Dominion had not manipulated the election or at least recklessly disregarded the truth when they allegedly caused Fox News to propagate its claims about Dominion.””

The evidence that Fox News purposefully maligned Dominion is overwhelming and irrefutable. The flagrant falsehoods promulgated on Fox include bizarre allegations that Dominion was created by deceased Venezuelan leader, Hugo Chavez; that their machines were rigged to switch votes from Trump to Biden; that Dominion was run by a George Soros associate; that Jewish space lasers operated by China altered the voter database.

Okay, that last one was not alleged in the lawsuit, but has been alleged by other Trump cult disciples. And the fact that it fits right in with the other real allegations says something all by itself.

In another defamation lawsuit filed by voting software company, Smartmatic, actual malice – exemplified by Tucker Carlson – was also cited when Fox’s motion to dismiss that case was rejected.

RELATED: Judge Cites Tucker Carlson as Validation of ‘Actual Malice’ in Defamation Suit Against Fox News

There’s a reason that these ruling keep going against Fox News. The network’s deliberate distortions of the truth have been a core part of their propaganda crusade to advance the “Big Lie” that Trump has been whining about for more than a year and a half. He has lost more than sixty cases challenging the election results, primarily because he has never produced a shred of evidence to support his charges.

Unfortunately, the efforts by Trump, aided and abetted by Fox News, have led to numerous episodes of violence, including the January 6th insurrection on Capitol Hill. And even that was predicted by a judge in a related case…

Stephen Colbert Hysterically Mocks Tucker Carlson’s ‘Comedy’ on the Arrest of His Staff in D.C.

Last week Senior Fox News Blow Hard, Tucker Carlson, went completely off the rails with a ludicrous segment accusing Stephen Colbert of having “committed insurrection” at the Capitol when members of his staff were detained during production of comedy routine featuring Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog. Carlson bizarrely asserted that it was “exactly like what happened on January 6th.”

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News. Tucker Carlson

Sure. It was “exactly” like the deadly insurrection by hundreds of hostile thugs incited by Donald Trump to break through barricades, injure more than 140 police officers, five of whom died, shatter windows and bust through locked doors, threaten to kill or hang government officials, and cause $30 million dollars in damages.

RELATED: Trump is Covertly Recruiting More Violent Insurrectionists With Promises of Future Pardons

On Monday night Colbert responded to the preposterous ravings of Carlson with both humor and insight. In his opening monologue, Colbert was noticeably shocked by the pure idiocy of Carlson’s take on the incident. He allusively referred to Carlson’s latest harangue saying that…

“… a couple of the TV people claimed that my puppet squad had “committed insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol building. First of all…What? Second of all…Huh? Third of all, they weren’t in the Capitol building. fourth of all – and I am shocked that I have to explain the difference – Insurrection involves the lawful actions of Congress and howling for the blood of elected leaders all to prevent the peaceful transfer of power. This was first degree puppetry. This was hijinks with intent to goof.” […]

“Drawing any equivalence between rioters storming the Capitol to prevent the counting of electoral ballots, and a cigar-chomping toy dog is shameful and a grotesque insult to the memory of everyone who died. And it obscenely trivializes the service and courage of the Capitol Police showed on that terrible day. But who knows. Maybe there was a vast conspiracy to overthrow the United States with a rubber Rottweiler.”

For his part, Carlson spent the entire A-block of his show blasting Colbert and his “seven saboteurs” who Carlson said had “breach[ed] the Capitol grounds” on “a hunt for sitting members of Congress.” And if you think he was kidding – because Carlson’s delivery always seems too asinine to take seriously – he followed up those allegations by affirming that “That happened, ladies and gentlemen!” That, in fact, did not happen .

Carlson went on to call the Colbert comedy routine “a meticulously planned coup … under the direct control of an extremist called Stephen Colbert.” He claimed that Colbert’s team “trashed the place, committing violence against our democracy.” Which is an absurd distortion of reality. Then he mocked the trauma experienced by journalists and members of Congress who were terrorized by the hundreds of StormTrumpers who were marauding through the Capitol calling for their deaths.

Was Carlson joking? It hardly matters. So much of what he said was uttered with a straight face and followed by a statement of affirmation. If it was satire it was executed so badly that its alleged humor was totally lost. And if it were his perverse attempt at comedy, it was a nauseatingly callous display that belittled the serious physical and emotional injuries suffered by the victims of Trump’s seditionists on January 6th.

But then, does anyone expect anything from Carlson other than malicious dishonesty and crackpot conspiracy theories? His whole raison d’etre is to spread ultra-rightist propaganda and divide the American people with flagrant lies. Pretty much exactly what his Dear Leader Trump is best known for. After all, he was actually defended in a defamation lawsuit by Fox News lawyers who told the court that “no reasonable person” would believe anything he said.

GOP Senator Tells Fox News that Support for Gun Reform in Polls is Because People are Stupid

This year there have been an appalling number of horrific mass shootings that have weighed heavily on the hearts of the nation and brought untold grief and loss to the communities in which they occurred. These tragedies are even more gut wrenching when children are the victims, as they were in Uvalde, Texas.

Fox News, Guns Logo

Yet somehow America’s representatives in Washington can’t manage to take affirmative action to address this epidemic of senseless bloodshed. And the fault lies squarely on Republicans who are beholden to the NRA-theists, and unwilling to even compromise on reforms that they agree on in principle.

RELATED: POLL: 44% of ‘Law and Order’ Republicans are Totally Cool with All the Mass Shootings in America

This resistance to advancing common sense solutions is ingrained in the GOP despite the overwhelming support for reforms in the populace at large. And that dichotomy was painfully illustrated in an interview on Fox News Sunday wherein Sen. Mike Lee of Utah degenerated into a babbling bowl of jelly as he struggled to justify his betrayal to his constituents. Fox’s Shannon Bream asked Lee about recent Fox News polling that “shows that there is a lot of strength behind some of these proposals at this time.” Bream then displayed a graphic of the poll’s findings…

Then Bream gave Lee an opportunity to respond, pointing out that “There is a lot of momentum, at least among the public sphere,” and asking “Are you out of step with your constituents?” Lee awkwardly dodged the question with a reply that was even worse than merely being out of step. He said that…

“First of all, what’s important is that we look out for the rights of constituents. Constituents are asked poll questions, they are not asked questions about specific language within legislative text. It’s the job of the lawmaker to look out for the interest and the rights of the law-abiding citizens they represent. And so with each of those provisions — I understand how they can get high popularity readings when they don’t define them. For example, you talk about banning assault weapons. There is no universal definition of what an assault rifle is. […] So that text does matter here, because it is that text that will determine whether we are intruding unduly on the rights of the American law-abiding citizen.”

To summarize Lee’s response, he believes the legislator’s job is to disregard what the public wants because they are too stupid to answer simple, straightforward questions in a poll. He even provides an example of how idiotic he thinks people are by asserting that they can’t form a coherent opinion about “assault weapons” because they don’t know what they are. Really?

Lee’s tortured doubletalk is just an attempt to evade the fact that he and his Republican confederates are purposefully betraying their constituents. The American people know what assault weapons are. They also know that legislation is written in legalese, but that that doesn’t make their opinions on these issues invalid. And they know that Lee is an arrogant horse’s ass who thinks he’s smarter than the dimwitted deplorables that he purports to represent.

For the record, the Fox News poll covered several aspects of the gun reform debate. And nearly every question revealed that significant majorities of the American people want substantive reforms. Here are a few of the poll’s findings…

  • “In general, a 56% majority believes that having tougher gun laws would reduce mass shootings in the United States, while 39% do not.”
  • “On specific gun proposals, voters are most supportive of requiring background checks on all gun buyers (88%) and improving enforcement of existing gun laws (84%).”
  • “Another 8 in 10 favor raising the legal age to buy assault weapons to 21 (82%), passing ‘red flag’ laws that allow police to take guns from people shown to be a danger (81%), background checks on buying ammunition (80%), mental health checks (78%), and raising the legal age to buy any gun to 21 (78%).”
  • “Seven in 10 favor banning high-capacity ammunition clips (70%), while slightly less (63%) support banning assault weapons.”
  • “The only proposals tested that lack majority support are allowing teachers to carry guns at schools (48%) and encouraging more citizens to carry a weapon (45%).”

With poll results like this – and from Fox News yet – the smug superiority of Republicans like Lee, who think that they know better than the people, is all the more repugnant. And it’s all the more obvious that their allegiance is to the gun industry lobbyists and the ammosexual perverts, rather than their own constituents.

RELATED: Ted Cruz Babbles that if All Firearms in America Were Eliminated there Would Be More Murders

Until that bond is broken, the United States will continue to suffer the most mass shootings of any nation on the planet. And the most effective way to break that bond is to vote out every Republican at every level of government. Hopefully voters will recognize that that is the only way they are ever likely to get true representation on this issue, as well as so many others, including healthcare, the environment, fair taxation, reproductive choice, civil liberties, and even the right to vote at all.

Big Liar Donald Trump Lies Bigly that CNN Has Prohibited Saying the Phrase ‘The Big Lie’

For more than a year and a half America’s biggest crybaby, Donald Trump, has been whining petulantly about having lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden. Trump’s humiliation is surely compounded by the fact that he couldn’t even defeat a man that he tried unsuccessfully to portray as a senile socialist.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, CNN

Consequently, Trump’s obsession has led him to incessantly peddle his ludicrous and unsupported allegations that the election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. Despite not being able to produce a shred of evidence, and undeterred by having lost more than sixty court cases, Trump persisted with his fantastical distortions of reality. Eventually his flagrant deceit was referred to simply as “The Big Lie” by the press, presumably to differentiate it from the thousands of other lies he’s told since he commenced his calamitous political career.

RELATED: Pathological Liar Trump Says He is ‘the Most Honest Human Being God Ever Created’

Now, in an Olympian feat of irony, Trump is actually lying about the use of the phrase “the Big Lie.” During a speech before his worshipful disciples at the ultra-rightist “Faith and Freedom” conference, Trump boldly blasphemed before the evangelical audience saying that…

“They know the Big Lie is actually the Big Lie in reverse. And they have great liability, and they don’t wanna use it. But they came down with an edict – they came down with a statement it was announced yesterday – that CNN is prohibited from ever using the term the ‘Big Lie’ again. I wonder why? We’re getting closer, but we have to fight some very sick and very evil people.”

To no one’s surprise, Trump is once again strangling the life out of the truth. What he’s referring to is a report that CNN’s new president, Chris Licht, expressed his preference that the use of the phrase “the big Lie” be discouraged. According to Mediaite, Licht said that “he preferred that staff avoid the term. He made clear this was a preference, not a mandate.”

So Licht is not opposed to the phrase because it is inaccurate, but because he thinks it hews too closely to the branding by Democrats, and he doesn’t want the network to be perceived as partisan. But in Trump’s cartoon brain there is some sort of “liability” on CNN’s part. Never mind that Trump’s legal acumen is notoriously lacking in any recognizable form of logic. Mediaite’s reporting added that Licht “encouraged producers to instead use the terms ‘Trump election lie’ or ‘election lies’ in banners and graphics.” So plainly his editorial position remains that Trump is lying about the election and that it’s permissible to say so.

RELATED: Trump Posts ‘Foolproof’ Evidence that the Election Was ‘Rigged’ But it’s Only Proof for Fools

Trump’s deliberate misrepresentation of Licht’s remarks is just the latest lie he has let loose, though not the biggest. And he continues to excrete his warped view of the world, even as his treasonous criminality is being probed by Congress. In the same speech Trump dropped another self-incriminating outburst wherein he literally confesses to how he pressured Mike Pence to illegally obstruct Congress from carrying out its constitutional duty to certify Biden’s victory:

“So they say we lost. don’t believe it. So they said [yelling] ‘Mike Pence can’t do anything.’ Then right after this whole event, they started working so they could make what they said true. Because the truth is he could have sent it back to the state legislature. […] So I said to Mike, ‘If you do this, you can be Thomas Jefferson.'”

Of course, every credible constitutional expert agrees that Pence had no legal authority to reject the results of the election that had been certified in all fifty states by both Democratic and Republican officials. And Trump’s efforts to bully him into doing so constitute a violation of federal law. Yet, in his desperation and ignorance, he keeps admitting his malfeasance in public. And worse, he’s acting out in conspicuously unlawful ways.

RELATED: Trump is Covertly Recruiting More Violent Insurrectionists With Promises of Future Pardons

Trump better be careful. The House Select Committee investing the January 6th insurrection is uncovering abundant evidence of his crimes. And Attorney General Merrick Garland recently said that he and the Justice Department prosecutors are watching the hearings. Trump’s past knack for evading accountability may finally be running out of steam.

Watch Tucker Carlson’s Insane Accusation that Stephen Colbert’s Staff ‘Committed Insurrection’

Holy Shih Tzu! When Fox News Senior Bullshucking correspondent, Tucker Carlson, devolves into unbridled hysteria he really holds nothing back. And on Friday night he was so incensed by late breaking news that he interrupted his regularly scheduled schizophonic schtick to report on a matter that would surely alter the course of humanity.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

As usual for Fox “News,” they were regurgitating a story that they picked up other from credible news organizations. Fox doesn’t actually do journalism. The story that titillated Tucker on this occasion was one that has international consequences. ABC News reported that several staffers for Stephen Colbert’s Late Show on CBS had been arrested for being in a congressional office building without proper authorization:

“In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS said the production team was at the Capitol Wednesday and Thursday to record a comedy segment featuring Triumph [the Insult Comic Dog].

“‘Their interviews at the Capitol were authorized and pre-arranged through Congressional aides of the members interviewed,’ the network said. ‘After leaving the members’ offices on their last interview of the day, the production team stayed to film stand-ups and other final comedy elements in the halls when they were detained by Capitol Police.'”

So this was essentially a case of having stayed beyond the period of time that had been previously approved. But to Tucker Carlson it was the same sort of domestic terrorism that was committed by Donald Trump’s shock troops on January 6, 2021. Carlson raged that…

“This is almost beyond belief, but just before this show aired we learned that last night producers for Stephen Colbert’s show on CBS committed insurrection at the United States Capitol. Adam Schiff, the congressman from California who spent the last year and a half telling you that unauthorized violations of Capitol space are a coup – Adam Schiff illegally gave producers from CBS access to the Capitol.

Then the group, which includes the show’s senior producer, director, comedian and writer, remained in the Longworth House office building after hours. And the point of them being there was for them to harass sitting members of congress. […] It’s exactly like what happened on January 6th, So, we’ll take a close look at what the punishments are.””

WOW! that is one heck of a deranged outburst, even for Carlson who is known for them. For him to equate what these seven comedy professionals were doing with the deadly insurrection by hundreds of hostile thugs incited by Trump is spectacularly preposterous. Colbert’s crew did not break through barricades and, in the process, injure more than 140 police officers, five of whom died. They did not shatter windows or bust through locked doors. They never threatened to kill or hang anyone. They didn’t vandalize the premises causing $30 million dollars in damages.

Carlson’s tirade also accused Rep. Adam Schiff of “illegally” giving producers from CBS access to the Capitol. That’s a lie. Carlson claimed that the purpose of the visit was “to harass sitting members of congress.” That, too, is a lie. The only thing that Carlson accomplished with his histrionics is to reveal that he doesn’t know the difference between a violent insurrection and a harmless overstay of a permitted visit by a few funny people.

Then again, it is never Carlson’s intent to provide honest accounts of anything. He is always focused on spreading disinformation that advances his ultra-rightist agenda. And this harangue is no exception. It’s his way of belittling the actual insurrection on January 6th, which he has previously tried to pass off as a pleasant tourist outing where “not a lot happened.” He works overtime to disinform his already dimwitted viewers with blatant falsehoods covering a wide array of subjects. For example…

There’s much more where that came from. But listing every asinine thing Carlson has said would break the Internet. It will be fun to see what Colbert has to say about this on Monday.

UPDATE: As expected, on Monday Colbert had something to say about Carlson’s ludicrous blathering. See Colbert’s response, as well as another excretion of absolute idiocy by Carlson…

Trump’s GOP is Morphing Hunter Biden Into an Evil Cartoon Villain to Deflect From January 6th

As the House Select Committee hearings on the January 6th insurrection continue its devastating exposition of Donald Trump and his treasonous role in orchestrating a violent coup, Trump and his Republican confederates are becoming ever more frantic about sweeping their assault on democracy under the rug.

Donald Trump, GOP

Fox News, who refused to even air the first hearing live in primetime, has devoted as little time as possible to covering the extensive incriminating evidence that is being revealed. Trump himself is suffering severe and psychotic meltdowns as he watches the Committee’s blistering presentation of his overt criminality. And the American people are paying attention as millions tune in to each session.

RELATED: The January 6th Hearings are Driving Public Opinion – And Trump’s Latest Delusional Meltdown

Consequently, the Trumpian Defense League has had to work overtime to distract the nation from the damning realities that are gushing out with each new panel of witnesses, all of whom – contrary to Trump’s frenzied rants – are former Trump associates and staffers, not partisan Democrats or Trump opponents. And topping the list of the Trump absolutionists is Rep. James Comer, ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Comer stands to become chairman of the Oversight Committee if Republicans seize the majority in November. And he is openly revealing his agenda for the country under GOP leadership. During an interview on the ultra-rightist propaganda network, One America News (OAN), Comer said…

“I promise you this, and I don’t make many promises, we will have Hunter Biden hearings in the House Oversight Committee. We believe Hunter Biden is a national security threat. We believe Hunter Biden’s bad shady business dealings are influencing some decisions that Joe Biden are (sic) making. So, in other words, we think that Joe Biden is compromised because of Hunter Biden’s shady business dealings.”

So Hunter Biden, who is not now – and has never been – a government official in any capacity, is somehow a “national security threat”? Comer, like all Republican shills, doesn’t explain how that could be possible. He also has zero evidence of any allegedly “shady business dealings.” Therefore, his allegations of “influencing” President Biden are just being pulled straight out of his asinine imagination.

On the basis of that flimsy fiction, Comer is promising to waste the time Congress with blatantly partisan hearings that are strictly motivated by politics and revenge on behalf of Trump. And that’s the GOP platform for the American people in 2023 should the GOP assume majority power.

Adding to the demonization of Hunter Biden is a harangue excreted by Donald Trump Jr on Newsmax.

“Our press won’t even ask ‘Do you think like us being on the verge of World War III, do you think our decision making could be being influenced by the fact that there’s plenty more out there that we don’t even know about.’ I mean, there doesn’t seem to be an enemy country of the United States that doesn’t somehow have a Hunter Biden laptop.”

WHUT? Let’s just set aside Donnie’s six year old speaking ability and his schizoid fantasies of World War III. His unsupported assertions of Hunter Biden’s influence over his father make no sense whatsoever. What decisions does he think have been altered due to anything that has been found on the suspect laptop? Donnie doesn’t say.

Furthermore, is the Trumpy spawn really peddling the notion that it’s no longer just one laptop that was abandoned at a computer repair shop in Delaware? Now there are actually dozens of reproducing laptops scattered around the world that once belonged to Hunter, and are now in the possession of America’s enemies? And all of them have some sort of compromising data on them?

If this is the depths that Trump and the GOP are sinking to in order to deflect from the January 6th hearings, then you know that they are desperately afraid of the information that is being accumulated and made available to the public. They know what they have done, and what could soon be revealed. And they know that it’s so bad that imaginary caravans of Mexican immigrants are no longer sufficient diversions. They have had to go nuclear with what Newsmax’s chyron calls “New Revelations Come From Hunter’s Evil Laptop.”

See? No longer merely an inanimate object, the laptop itself is possessed by demons. And Hunter is the messenger of Satan. It makes you wonder what the congressional hearings that Comer is threatening would be like. Would they have an exorcist testifying? Or would they just leave that sort of fear mongering to Tucker Carlson?
