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.

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…

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.

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.

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

On January 6, 2021, deadly riots took place on Capitol Hill that were purposefully instigated by Donald Trump. They were intended to undermine democracy by obstructing Congress from carrying out its constitutional duty to certify Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election. It was an unprecedented act of domestic terrorism that was fueled by a wannabe dictator who was unwilling to concede that he lost.

Donald Trump Rally, Sieg Heil

While Trump and his Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) belittled the carnage, more than a 140 law enforcement officers were injured, and millions of dollars of damage was done by the StormTrumpers. This insurrection is currently being investigated by a bipartisan House Select Committee that is finding abundant evidence of criminality on the part of Trump and his seditious confederates.

RELATED: Trump’s ‘Big Ripoff’ is Also Revealed in the January 6th Committee’s Probe of His ‘Big Lie’

So what is a treasonous, twice-impeached, pathologically lying, former reality TV game show host to do when confronted by indisputable proof of his treachery? Well, for Trump it is to deliver yet another lie-riddled, self-exalting speech before an audience of glassy-eyed cult disciples. And that’s precisely what Trump did at the “Faith and Freedom” in Tennessee on Friday night.

Trump’s harangue was mostly consumed by the tedious repetition of his relentless and totally false whining that the 2020 election was “rigged” and “stolen” him. It was a pathetic outpouring of self-pity that has only become more intense as the House Committee’s case of against him progresses, with the American people watching and learning of his depravity, by the millions.

In addition to his tiresome top hits, Trump added a new number to the set list on Friday. Referring to the thugs who assaulted Congress, Trump offered his sympathies, not for the people’s representatives who were terrorized or the officers who were attacked, but for fate of the traitors who were arrested for their flagrant and savage lawlessness. But he didn’t stop at sympathies:

“Even while January 6th defendants are having their lives totally destroyed, and being treated worse than terrorists and murderers, despite most being charged with parading through the Capitol, most people should not be treated the way they’re being treated. And if I become president, someday if I decide to do it, I will be looking at them very, very seriously for pardons. Very, very seriously. They’ve been treated very unfairly.”

First of all, if the lives of the January 6th defendants are being destroyed, it’s their own fault for joining Trump’s immoral and unlawful coup attempt. Secondly, many of them have been charged with seditious conspiracy, and other felonies, which Trump fails to mention.

However, the most foreboding part of Trump’s remarks is his promise to “very, very seriously” consider pardons for his shock troops if he were to reoccupy the White House. What should send shivers down the spines of patriots is not just his interest in allowing the traitors to get off scot free, but the effect of his promise going forward.

Trump is essentially telling anyone who is contemplating committing future acts of violence that they too would be pardoned. That is a thinly veiled recruitment campaign for new insurrectionists. Trump is telling them to go ahead and assault people and institutions without fear of consequences. He is also engaging in witness tampering because his promise would encourage people with pertinent information to withhold it on the expectation that they would be pardoned for their crimes and for defying the courts.

It is rhetoric like this that makes it all the more critical that Trump never be allowed anywhere near any position of power again, and that he be prosecuted for his past offenses. Hopefully the House Committee will continue to document his malfeasances and the Department of Justice will act accordingly.

Crybaby Trump Slams the January 6th Committee For Nixing His Witnesses – Who Refused to Testify

Poor Donald Trump. It must be terribly difficult for him to watch the House Select Committee conduct a thorough investigation of his treasonous crimes without anyone there to stand up for him or tell his side of story. And it can’t help knowing that millions of Americans are tuning in and being swayed. Unless, of course, they’re watching Fox News where it is either being ignored or followed up with sycophantic slobbering.

Donald Trump Pacifier Fox

So what is a seditious, coup-plotting, aspiring authoritarian, and pathological liar to do when forced to sit through hour after hour of incriminating evidence? Well, naturally he rants incoherently on his own miserably failing social media website about how he is such a victim of Democratic meanies.

RELATED: Trump Rants Hysterically as His PRAVDA Social Bans Users Who Post the Truth About January 6th

The whiny complaints that Trump is posting on his hysterically misnamed “TRUTH” Social are typical of a severely damaged malignant narcissist whose tender ego has been wounded. They are drenched in self pity and festering falsehoods. Beginning with

“The Unselect Committee has been unable the answer, or in any way refute, the detailed statement, put out yesterday, of voter fraud and irregularities in numerous states that took place in the 2020 Presidential Election. They don’t answer because they have no answer. […] The Committee is a SCAM!”

Actually, the Committee has effectively refuted Trump’s tedious tantrums about the allegedly “rigged” 2020 presidential election. And unlike Trump, they have done so with documentary evidence and corroborating testimony. What’s more, many Trump administration officials have debunked his utterly unsupported allegations of election fraud.

What Trump is referring to in the comment above is his deranged twelve page hissy fit that produced nothing that he hasn’t already been manically excreting for the past year and a half. Much of that trumped up treatise rested on the crocumentary “2,000 Mules” by Dinesh D’Souza, the convicted election fraudster who Trump pardoned. But Trump was just getting started. He continued raging that

“The Fake News Media won’t challenge the so-called “Big Lie” because they have NO AMMUNITION to do so. They and their Radical Left Democrat Partner, the same people that perpetuated the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia HOAX, are using their standard DISINFORMATION Con to bring our Country down!”

Actually, the media has repeatedly and exhaustively challenged Trump’s “Big Lie.” And it hasn’t been especially difficult considering that he doesn’t have a shred of evidence, which explains why he has lost more than sixty court cases wherein he attempted to challenge the election results. Trump’s argument has devolved into the same repetitive babbling about a “HOAX” that he makes against his well documented collusion with Russia:

RELATED: So It Wasn’t a Hoax After All: Tucker Carlson Admits that Russia Got Trump Elected

But Trump still had more to disgorge, whereupon he unleashed this seething squeal

“Why don’t the Unselects put up the many witnesses who are for our Country and fully agree that the Election was Rigged and Stolen, instead of the weak and frightened Losers that very FEW people have been watching so far??? WITCH HUNT!!!”

This is perhaps the most ludicrous of Trump’s outbursts. First of all, Trump knows very well that millions of people have been watching these hearings. More than 20 million tuned in to Thursday’s primetime session, and more than 10 million during Monday’s morning session. These are numbers that exceed all regular programming and most major sporting events, awards shows, and other popular specials.

Secondly, the “weak and frightened Losers” who testified, and to whom Trump is referring, are all veterans of his administration. Every witness so far has been a Trump associate or staffer. And Trump’s complaint that the Committee hasn’t put up witnesses who “agree that the Election was Rigged and Stolen,” isn’t the Committee’s fault. Nevertheless, Trump lashed out in his twelve page harangue several times saying…

  • “If they had any real evidence, they’d hold real hearings with equal representation.”
  • “They have refused to allow their political opponents to participate in this process, and have excluded all exculpatory witnesses.”
  • “The American public has a right to know the truth and see every witness.”
  • “What are the members of this treasonous ‘Committee’ afraid of? Why can’t they let the countervailing opinion be heard?”

In fact, the witnesses that Trump is begging to hear, and who would be expected to support him, have stubbornly and illegally refused to testify. Some of them refused at Trump’s direction. Among those who defied the Committee’s subpoenas to appear were his former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, his social media director, Dan Scavino, his former campaign chairman, Steve Bannon, and his former trade representative, Peter Navarro. The latter two have been indicted for contempt of Congress.

If Trump really wants the Committee to hear his side of the story, he could simply tell his associates to accept the Committee’s invitation to testify. Or better yet, he could volunteer to testify himself. Then his story could be told in his own words. There are just two little problems. First, he is too big a coward, and he would rather whine than face the Committee and defend himself. And second, he knows he’s guilty.

UPDATE: Trump added another bombastic outburst

“The Fake News Networks are perpetuating lies, falsehoods, and Russia, Russia, Russia type disinformation (same sick people, here we go again!) by allowing the low rated but nevertheless one sided and slanderous Unselect Committee hearings to go endlessly and aimlessly on (and on and on!). It is a one sided, highly partisan Witch Hunt, the likes of which has never been seen in Congress before. Therefore, I am hereby demanding EQUAL TIME to spell out the massive Voter Fraud & Dem Security Breach!”

“Demanding”? He’s so funny. And once again, all it would take – as Committee member Eric Swalwell says – is “sitting your lying ass in a witness chair.” The Committee will gladly make time for him. He won’t do it. He’s too busy whining, and too scared to show up.

Apparently Inebriated? Rudy Giuliani Countersues Over Smartmatic Suit Against Him and Fox News

Among the most egregious of the many broken promises of Donald Trump’s torturous one-term tenancy in the White House was his predictably improbable claim that he would always hire “the best people.” And Trump himself has been the best witness to the absurdity of that pledge. The list of former Trump staffers that he now says are losers and idiots who were never up to the job could wallpaper the entire exterior of Mar-a-Lago.

Click here to Tweet this article

Rudy Giuliani

That list includes Trump’s cabinet secretaries, his chief of staff, generals and other Pentagon officials, and legal representatives. Which brings us to his long time lawyer, the apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani. Since heading up Trump’s legal team, Giuliani has lost more than sixty cases related to Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. He has also lost his license to practice law in New York, and is being investigated in Washington, D.C. His relentless and unabashed lies even got him banned on Fox News.

RELATED: Disgraced Trump Toady Rudy Giuliani has Been Banned from … Fox News?

Giuliani has also been named in a couple of multibillion dollar lawsuits filed by election services companies that were defamed by Trump associates and Trump-fluffing media. One of the suits was filed by Dominion Voting Systems for $1.6 billion. The other one was filed by Smartmatic Software for $2.7 billion. Both explicitly cite Giuliani as a named defendant, along with Fox News and other individuals.

Now Giuliani is fighting back with a countersuit against Smartmatic. Reuters is reporting that…

“Rudolph Giuliani has sued Smartmatic to recoup legal fees as he defends against its $2.7 billion lawsuit accusing him, Fox News Network and others of falsely claiming that the company helped rig the 2020 U.S. presidential election so Joe Biden would defeat Donald Trump.

“In a counterclaim filed late Monday in a New York state court in Manhattan, Giuliani said the voting machine company’s defamation lawsuit, which he characterized as baseless, interfered with his constitutional right to speak freely on issues of public concern.”

Considering the fact that Smartmatic’s suit contains an abundance of documentary evidence to prove their claims against Giuliani and the his co-defendants, it’s hard to imagine on what grounds he is basing his complaint. Giuliani’s defamatory statements were made on national television programs where he unleashed bizarre and baseless charges asserting that Smartmatic was “formed by people close to Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his late predecessor Hugo Chavez, and founded ‘for the specific purpose of fixing elections.'” Then again, almost all of his charges are bizarre and baseless.

RELATED: WTF? Giuliani Says He’s Stashed ‘Evidence’ Against Hillary Clinton in His Bedroom for Years

Giuliani is also asserting that his First Amendment rights are being infringed upon. But the First Amendment doesn’t shield speech that is false and defamatory. And any honest and competent lawyer would know that. Which, of course, leaves Giuliani out. The only thing he will accomplish with this suit is to bring more attention to his pathetic ineptitude, as well as the guilt of his client, Donald Trump. So bring it on, Rudy, and pass the popcorn.

Fox News Senior Political Analyst Says January 6th Hearings Could Help GOP By Thumping Trump

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection incited by Donald Trump has so far conducted two sessions that have already produced devastating evidence of criminal malfeasance by the twice-impeached, former reality TV game show host. And while Fox News refused to air the first session live, They did succumb to pressure and covered the second session.

Donald Trump

The revelations of Trump’s anti-American sedition disclosed so far include that many of his closest White House and campaign staffers tried in vain to coax him off the ledge of crazy election fraud claims that he knew were not true. His Attorney General, Bill Barr, called such claims “bullshit.” And both documents and testimony exposed Trump’s financial corruption wherein he repeatedly lied to his gullible cult followers in order to fleece them for donations that he said were intended for an “Election Defense Fund” that never actually existed.

RELATED: Trump’s ‘Big Ripoff’ is Also Revealed in the January 6th Committee’s Probe of His ‘Big Lie’

Unsurprisingly, most of the post-hearing commentary on Fox News was stridently hostile toward the Committee, its members, and its mission. Their primetime roster of Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Laura Ingraham, all either disparaged or belittled the proceedings. However, there were a couple of uncharacteristically honest moments that managed to slither out from the avalanche of Trump-fluffing propaganda. One of those moments came when Fox’s Senior Political Analyst, Brit Hume, told anchor Bret Baier that…

“What strikes me about this, Bret, is that if they succeed ? either by damaging him or staining him such that he is either unable for legal or political reasons to run again ? they might end up finding out that they’ve done the Republican Party a great service. Because I think a great many Republicans think they can’t win with Trump at the head of the ticket again.

“They’re afraid of his supporters and don’t want to come out against him directly. But they’d like him to go away. If the effect of this committee is to make his possible candidacy go away, I think a great many Republicans would privately be very glad.”

That’s a rare admission by someone on Fox News that Trump is actually an albatross around the red neck of a Republican Party that both hates and fears him. Hume is also conceding that Trump could be guilty of crimes that would forestall his becoming a candidate in 2024. And he is confirming that a significant faction of the GOP believe that Trump would lose – again – were he to be the Party’s nominee.

There is a reasonable argument to be made that Hume is right that dumping Trump would would be a boon to the GOP in 2024. However, that is not by any any stretch of the imagination a foregone conclusion. First of of all, it presumes that a different nominee would be less schizoid that Trump. And judging by their bench (Ron DeSantis, Tom Cotton, Ted Cruz, etc.), that’s a highly speculative presumption. Secondly, whatever non-Trump candidate would replace him would suffer from the fact that Trump’s disciples might tend to stay home if their messiah isn’t on the ballot.

Furthermore, the hearings now in progress have the potential to do serious damage to more than just Trump. The entire Republican Party has been shown to be complicit in his illicit behavior. And a great deal of that is being played out on television via these hearings, which have garnered huge ratings with an audience exceeding 20 million.

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

In addition to Hume’s remarks, the Fox news audience was also treated to the opinion of Democratic consultant and Fox News contributor, Marie Harf, who said that…

“The testimony this morning paints a picture of a president who is hearing from all his top advisers – not all, many of his top advisers, the ‘normal team,’ as Bill Stepien called them – that his claims were outrageous. They were B.S. They were not based in any fact. And yet he went out to his supporters and told them they were true, encouraged them, lit this match. Encouraged people to believe these BS allegations. He asked them for money to help in his legal cases. He gave them a false sense of hope, and that culminated, as I think the Committee will get to, in what we saw on January 6th.

“So let’s take a step back from the process, from the inside baseball, who’s on the Committee and who isn’t. We saw a portrait of a president today who was increasingly at odds with reality. And that’s according to his own advisers, including people like Bill Barr.”

It will take a lot more of this type of truthful commentary to deprogram the brainwashed Fox News viewers. But the fact that these views are getting aired on Fox is validation of the Democrats decision to hold these hearings and to hold Trump and his cronies to account for their crimes. And they have only just begun.

Trump’s ‘Big Ripoff’ is Also Revealed in the January 6th Committee’s Probe of His ‘Big Lie’

The House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection, and Donald Trump’s role in instigating it, is hitting on all cylinders. The opening session disclosed never before seen video of the Capitol Hill riots. And the second day of hearings further confirmed that Trump was fully aware that his “Big Lie” about the election being “rigged” and “stolen” from him were – in his own Attorney General’s words – “Bullshit!”

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

However, in addition to the mountains of evidence of Trump’s purposeful deceptions intended to overturn the election and undermine democracy, testimony was given that exposed his flagrant grifting and calculated campaign to ripoff his gullible and glassy-eyed disciples. This shouldn’t surprise anyone who recalls that Trump actually pardoned his former campaign chairman, Steve Bannon, who was convicted of defrauding Trump supporters with a phony fund to build a wall along the southern border. Trump was also found to be stealing donor campaign funds to pay his legal bills. And now the American people are paying attention to the revelations flowing from these hearings.

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

In Monday’s hearing viewers learned that…

“Throughout the committee’s investigation we found evidence that the Trump campaign and its surrogates misled donors as to where their funds would go and what they would be used for. So not only was there the big lie, there was the big ripoff.”

It was also disclosed that “Trump sent millions of fundraising emails, sometimes as many as 25 a day,” to his cult followers begging for money to finance his “Official Election Defense Fund,” which, as it turns out, never existed. He raised more than $250 million via this scam operation.

The fraud extended to Trump’s SuperPAC, dishonestly named “Save America.” With this con Trump not only enriched himself, but distributed millions of dollars to his cronies.

“The select committee discovered that the Save America Pac made millions of dollars in contributions to Pro-Trump organizations including one million dollars to Mark Meadows’ charitable organization”

Naturally, Fox News has been a big part of Trump’s flock fleecing activities. And although Fox refused to air the first Committee hearing during primetime on Thursday (which would have preempted their most fervent propagandists (Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and Laura Ingraham), they succumbed to pressure and carried Monday’s hearing live. However, their coverage served to excuse Trump’s swindling saying that…

“There was enormous fundraising effort that was built off the back of this. Anybody who pays attention to politics knows that’s not that surprising. There was also an enormous fundraising campaign that went off the back of Russia collusion as well. That’s the way politics works now.”

So Fox News began their whitewash by asserting that Trump’s larceny was just routine politics. It’s not. Then they segued to “whatabouting” the fraudulent fundraising and accusing Democrats of doing the same thing. Of course, they couldn’t supply a single example of any similar Democratic racket because it simply doesn’t exist. And Fox’s attempt to equate Trump’s assertions of election fraud (for which there is zero evidence) with the Russia collusion charges (that are well documented) is wholly dishonest and unsupported by facts or reality.

The majority of the American people are not going to be as easily fooled as Trump’s Deplorables. And as more proof of his culpability for crimes ranging from the insurrection (that he has lately started calling a hoax) to his financial malfeasance are unveiled, the greater the prospects that he will finally be held accountable.

Voters are More Likely to Support Democrats When Told They are Running Against Trump, MAGA

As the midterm election approaches, President Biden and the Democratic Party continue face challenges in their quest to retain majorities in the House and the Senate. While the economy is strong, wages are growing, and job creation is booming, many people are struggling with inflation and higher gas prices, neither of which is controlled by any president.

Donald Trump Walking the Plank

The importance of maintaining – and even expanding – the Democratic caucus in Congress is critical to a wide array of issues including gun regulation reform, reproductive choice, fair taxation, health care, and the environment. What’s more, congressional probes into the criminal activities of Trump and his cronies would be summarily halted if Republicans were to seize power. And GOP leaders have already promised to initiate persecutorial probes of Biden and other Democrats.

Consequently, the need to persuade voters to back Democrats and cast ballots in the midterm election could not be more crucial to advancing the interests of the American people, and to democracy itself. The question is how best to achieve that goal.

RELATED: BIDEN: Americans Have a Choice Between Two Very Different Sets of Values: Ultra-MAGA or Sanity

A new poll by Priorities USA, a Democratic SuperPAC, is shining some light onto a path forward for Democrats. They surveyed “persuadable” voters in swing states and found that…

“Democrats would lose narrowly to Republicans among targeted voters when people were simply asked if they wanted a Democrat or a Republican in office. On that generic ballot question, Republicans got 44% of the surveyed – which include battleground state persuadable voters and those who are at least somewhat unmotivated to vote this fall – while Democrats got 41% support. That small difference could be pivotal in Senate and gubernatorial races in those states.”

However, “when Trump and his Make America Great Again [MAGA] agenda are brought into the picture, it brightens for Democrats, the polling found” that when…

“Asked if they’d prefer a Democrat who supports Biden or a Republican who supports Trump, those polled preferred the Democrat to the Republican, 41% to 31%. On that question, the hypothetical Democrat got 11% of GOP voters who picked the Republican in the generic ballot question and 32% of third-party voters who initially went with the GOP contender.”

This is affirmation of America’s aversion to the twice-impeached reality TV game show host and failed real estate huckster. His repugnant personality, inflated ego, callous insensitivity, incessant lying, overt bigotry, and unrepentant criminal tendencies, have clearly had an effect on the population at large. And Democrats would be well advised to make note of those “qualities” in their campaigns between now and November.

For his [part, Trump continues to exhibit symptoms of his malignant narcissism in posts to his failing social media website. On Wednesday he delusionally ranted that “It is being stated by almost all that Joe Biden is the worst President in history.” Naturally, Trump offered no support for that wildly fictional claim, because there isn’t any. The truth is that, according to a survey of presidential historians, Trump is the 4th worst president in history. And according to several other rankings, Trump came in either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd worst.

RELATED: Trump’s Irrelevance is Increasing, as are His Pitifully Delusional Attempts to Pretend it’s Not

All of this drives home the point that Trump is a dead weight around the neck of the GOP. And that should be featured prominently in ads supporting Democratic candidates. However, giving Trump the whacking that he so richly deserves should not be done to the exclusion of positive portrayals of Democrats and the Democratic agenda.

Voters still need to have an affirmative reason to go to the polls. And if Democrats can balance the Trump bashing with affirmations of Democratic accomplishments, they might just avoid the typical losses that occur for the party in power during the midterms.

Crybaby Trump Bashes Fox News, ‘Perverts’ and ‘RINOS’ Who ‘Didn’t Have the Guts’ to Impeach Him

As the prospects for Donald Trump facing political and legal consequences for his criminal acts continue to heat up, his behavior is becoming ever more volatile and deranged. This past week he saw his former White House trade official, and staunch ally on the “Big Lie” election front, Peter Navarro, in handcuffs and leg irons as he got arrested for contempt of Congress.

Donald Trump, Fox News

Next week the House Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection is holding public hearings that promise to reveal new evidence against Trump and his coup-plotting cronies. So Trump is already ramping up the rabid rhetoric against the truth that he knows is about to come out.

RELATED: Now Trump is Calling the January 6th Insurrection ‘a Hoax…Just Like Russia Russia Russia’

In his determination to pre-but the documents and testimony that the Committee will release, Trump is unleashing a steady stream of vitriol and lies. He’s got his work cut out for him considering that recent polls show that 67% of the public – including 41% of Republicans – say that he “bears some or a lot of responsibility for the violence and destruction committed” during the riots on January 6, 2021.

Making matters worse for Trump, he is now facing additional criticism from fellow Republicans. Former GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan appeared at an event supporting the reelection or Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC). During his remarks Ryan had some thoughts that you know would inflame the fragile ego of Trump. Referring to Rice’s vote in favor of impeaching Trump, Ryan said that…

“There were a lot of people who wanted to vote like Tom but who just didn’t have the guts to do it. There are a lot of people who say they’re going to vote their conscience, they’re going to vote for the Constitution, they’re going to vote for their convictions, but when it gets hard to do that, they don’t do it.”

Rice is currently leading his Trump-endorsed Republican primary opponent, Russell Fry, by double digits. So Trump’s ego is not the only thing at risk in this race. The value of his endorsement is also on line. Particularly after his candidates for governor and secretary of state in Georgia both lost by huge margins. Consequently, Trump barked out this rant on his failing social media site:

“Did anyone notice that Fox News went lame (bad!) when weak RINO Paul Ryan, who is despised in the Great State of Wisconsin for being ‘a pathetic loser,’ went on the Fox Board. They won’t even talk about an obviously Rigged 2020 Presidential Election, not even a mention. That’s why our Country is going to HELL – Elections have consequences. Get Ryan off your Board and report the News as it should be reported…And stop taking negative ads from the perverts, and others!!!”

Trump is the last person who should be calling other people “despised” and “pathetic losers.” He lost the popular vote twice by millions, and he never cracked 50% in approval polling throughout his occupation of the White House, or since.

Furthermore, Trump has been bashing Fox News for a lot longer than Ryan has been a board member. Any time that Fox reported something that was less than worshipful about him, he went off. In any case, no board member has authority over Fox’s programming or editorial content. And Trump certainly has no authority to demand who is, or is not, on the board.

As for Trump’s chronic fixation about the 2020 election, he simply can’t make any public comment without whining about it (he is, after all, in his own words, “the most fabulous whiner“), And it’s cute that he thinks that “our Country is going to HELL” because Fox allegedly won’t report on it. However, the truth is that Fox has not shied away from the issue. The entirety of the Fox roster have been staunchly supportive of the flagrantly fictional assertions of fraud. What Trump is likely referring to is Fox’s reluctance to promote the new crocumentary, “2,000 Mules,” that is filled with ludicrous assumptions and blatant lies. Nevertheless, Fox has indeed mentioned it, and Carlson interviewed the principle filmmakers.

If Fox has not participated in the sort of rank promotion for a lie-riddled movie that Trump would like, it might be because the network is already being sued for billions of dollars over their election fraud lies. (See the Dominion lawsuit, and the Smartmatic lawsuit).

Finally, Trump’s admonition that “Elections have consequences” is rather bizarre considering that he has refused to honor the 2020 election in which Joe Biden received seven million votes than he did, and a landslide Electoral College victory. It was an election that even Republican election officials said was the most secure in history. And Trump’s opposition to “negative ads from perverts” sounds like his promise not to produce any ads in the future. Not that he can be expected to ever keep a promise.
