Fox News Hack FREAKS OUT Over President Biden Eating Ice Cream at a Campaign Stop

There is nothing Fox News likes better than inventing pseudo-scandals to malign President Biden and other Democrats. That’s mainly because they can’t find any actual scandals to pin on Biden and company. As a result we are subjected to feigned outrage over obvious contrivances such as Hunter Biden’s laptop, or gay Legos, or armed IRS Agents hunting down middle-class families.

Jesse Watters, Fox News

On Monday evening’s episode of the Jesse Watters program on Fox News, the dumbest man on TV pontificated profusely on what may be the most heinous offence ever committed by an American president. Joe Biden actually had the audacity to take a few minutes out of his day, while campaigning on behalf of Democrats in Oregon, to visit a local ice cream parlor for a sweet treat. And who better than Jesse Watters to expose Biden’s ill manners?

While on the campaign trail, reporters asked Biden to address the inflation that the U.S. – and every other country in the world – is enduring. Biden gave a sound and succinct reply – something that Donald Trump and Republicans are incapable of – then resumed enjoying his tasty dessert. And that heinous act of barbarism triggered a rather bizarre response from Watters:

Biden: Our economy is strong as hell – the internals of it. Inflation is worldwide. It’s worse off everywhere else than it is in the United States.
Watters: A man should never lick an ice cream cone in public. A man can only eat ice cream on vacation. I guess Biden’s always on vacation, so it makes sense. But if a man needs to eat ice cream in public, he should scoop it out of a bowl with a spoon.

“The President of the United States licking things, especially ice cream, is childish. It’s frivolous and it’s too casual a look for the country. Biden’s brain freeze will live in infamy. Just like Bush gave up golf after 9/11, Biden should give up ice cream after the recession. You’re not at a birthday party, Joe.

First of all, Biden is correct. The efforts by Republicans and Fox News to blame Biden for what is a worldwide economic problem is deliberately dishonest. They cannot, of course, rationally blame Biden for the inflation in France or Japan. But they persist in false accusations that something Biden did produced the inflation in the U.S. Although they can’t specify what he is supposed to have done. In reality, he’s done quite a lot that is beneficial to the majority of the country.

However, Watters didn’t linger on the question about the economy, which does have some significance to most Americans. Nope. He dived immediately into the reprehensible ice cream atrocity by Biden. And Watters labored mightily to nail what was so hideous about it. After all, everyone knows that “a man should never lick an ice cream cone in public.” And that “a man can only eat ice cream on vacation.” And even then he must “scoop it out of a bowl with a spoon.” Otherwise, he is being “childish,” “frivolous,” and “too casual.”

How can President Biden hope to relate to average Americans when he so brazenly breaches the behavioral standards that are core to the American character? What other political figure would ever do such a thing? And who can blame Fox News for featuring this depravity, which they have done before? Well, there is this…

The GOP’s Not-So-Secret Plot to Sabotage the Economy if They Gain Control of Congress

With the 2022 midterm election now less than a month away, this may be a good time to ponder what the Republican Party would do should they manage to win a majority in the House, the Senate, or both. And in some respects they have been helpfully candid as to their plans should their aspirations come to pass.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

It isn’t exactly a pretty picture. Among the more brazenly shameless admissions on the the part of leading Republicans have been Sen. Lindsey Graham’s promise to advance legislation to ban abortion nationwide, and Sen. Rick Scott’s agenda proposing to sunset Social Security and Medicare.

RELATED: Rick Scott is the Best Chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee the Democrats Ever Had

However, the most harrowing scenario cooked up by the power mad GOP is their plan to take the nation’s economy hostage by demanding that Democrats submit to their policy demands or else they will refuse to negotiate the debt ceiling. Those GOP proposals include cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy, and slashing benefits for seniors and healthcare recipients.

To be clear, the debt ceiling defines the government’s limits on issuing credit in order to pay its bills. If it isn’t appropriately adjusted, the result would be the U.S. government falling into default. That would create an economic crisis in the U.S. and around the world. It is the equivalent of the “nuclear” option for the economy. And Republicans are threatening to drop that bomb if they don’t get their way.

This isn’t idle speculation. Leading Republicans in Congress have openly expressed their intentions to deploy this political weapon. Bloomberg News reports that “‘The debt limit is clearly one of those tools that Republicans — that a Republican-controlled Congress — will use… ‘ said Rep. Jason Smith (R-Mo.).” And that… “House Republicans are openly threatening to cause an economic catastrophe in order to realize their obsession with slashing Medicare and Social Security,” Henry Connelly, a Pelosi spokesman, said in a Tuesday statement to Bloomberg Government.”

It should come as no surprise that this economic terrorism is being ignited by the GOP cult messiah, Donald Trump. For months he has been chastising Republican Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, for not issuing debt ceiling threats to allow a default. As recently as last month Trump whined on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, that…

“Mitch McConnell is giving the Democrats everything they want. He is their lapdog! He didn’t stop trillions of dollars in spending by refusing to use the Debt Ceiling as a negotiating tool. He gave it up for nothing. […] in order to destroy America.”

Republicans have already been acting to tank the economy. They have voted against several bills that would have eased inflation, and lowered the costs of gas and healthcare. The threat of that betrayal, and the devastating default that Republicans are embracing, has not been getting the media attention that such catastrophes merit. Virtually the only recent television coverage has been on MSNBC by Chris Hayes, who warned that…

“If the economy is the number one issue to voters, then there is one party that will have an incentive to make it better. And that party is the one that has the presidency. The Democrats.

“The other side, the Republicans, have an explicit incentive to make the economy worse. And I will tell you, having covered the Tea Party Congress of 2011, amidst the recovery from the financial crisis, i feel confident in predicting that if Republicans win control of one or both houses of Congress, they will do everything in their power to sabotage the economy to best set them up to retake the White House in 2024.”

And Hayes’ guest during this segment, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, concurred, saying that…

“The Republicans are loud and clear about this. They’ve already said, for example, that they will use the debt ceiling negotiations. […] There are already Republicans saying that if they can get control of the House or the Senate then they’re going to hold hostage things like Social Security and Medicare.”

Republicans are aiming a weapon of mass economic destruction at the United States and all of its citizens. And there is little being done about it by the media, whose job it is to keep people informed of threats such as this. What the GOP is plotting would produce more harm than the recent hurricane in Florida. But there aren’t any hourly updates about the path of this disaster. That needs to change – and fast!

Fox News Host Criticizes Democrats for Having the Audacity to Oppose … Fascism?

It’s been two weeks since President Biden delivered his historic Soul of America speech, wherein he alerted the nation to the growing threat of authoritarian forces deeply embedded in Donald Trump’s MAGA crusade. The speech addressed the stark choice that the country faces between being “a nation of hope and unity and optimism, or a nation of fear, division, and of darkness?”

Donald Trump

In the intervening weeks, Fox News has remained fiercely fixated on what they have falsely characterized as Biden’s hostility to half the nation. Never mind that Biden explicitly said that he was not referring to all Republicans, or even to all Trump supporters. The dishonest narrative that Fox News was intent on promulgating was more important than the truth.

RELATED: Biden Was Wrong to Call MAGA Republicans Merely ‘Semi’ Fascist

That same seething obsession was evident on Monday’s episode of Fox and Friends. in a response to remarks by her guest, far right radio talker Jason Rantz, co-host Harris Faulkner latched onto the fake Fox factoid that Biden had insulted the MAGA cultists saying that…

“If they’re anti-semi-fascist, which is how they see more than half the country now – because Democrats are looking up and saying ‘Look we we just want lower prices. Where’s that $1.99 gas.’ – Are they pro-Antifa?”

There is so much wrong in that sound-fright that it requires some delving into. First of all, Faulkner is still lying that Biden was referring to “half the country,” when he was clearly referring only to MAGA extremists, like the insurrectionists who stormed Congress on January 6th. And even if Biden was referring to every Republican voter, it still wouldn’t be anywhere near 50% the country. There are 350 million people in the U.S. Only 71 million voted for Trump. Which is about 21% of the country, as well as seven million fewer than voted for Biden. Granted, 21% is still way more than we should tolerate, but it’s way less than than what Faulkner and every liar on Fox News has been regurgitating.

What’s more, Faulkner is not a particularly reliable source for what “Democrats are saying.” However, her whining about gas prices appears to be stuck several weeks in the past. Gas prices have dropped for 13 weeks in a row. And the only reason it was two bucks during Trump’s term was because of the COVID-19 pandemic that he so terribly mismanaged. Does she really want to go back to those days when no one was driving or leaving the house because thousands were dying every day?

More to the point, Faulkner’s complaint that Democrats are “pro Antifa” isn’t the beat-down that she thinks it is. Setting aside the fact that there is no such Democratic entity, being anti-fascist is a broadly popular position in this country. There are many others who likewise consider themselves anti-fascist. They’re called patriotic Americans. But if Faulkner and Fox News want to brag about being pro-fascist, we might as well let them. After all, their Dear Leader Trump doesn’t even bother to disguise it anymore.

Rick Scott is the Best Chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee the Democrats Ever Had

The 2022 midterm election season officially started this week with Labor Day. And there is an abundance of political ingredients swirling in this year’s stew. Most notably is that the leader of the Republican Party, Donald Trump, is sloshing around furiously as he attempts to avoid being indicted for a broad array of crimes.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

Democrats are enjoying a bit of a late surge following the successful passage of a flurry of popular bills addressing everything from infrastructure to gun safety, to climate change, and much more. Consequently, the down ballot Republicans are suffering nervous breakdowns as they try to navigate the perilous waters between being sufficiently worshipful of Trump, as he demands, and dodging the toxic animosity and controversy that the flailing Trump is splashing on his GOP colleagues.

RELATED: Wannabe Dictator Trump Decrees a Delusional Demand that He Be Anointed American Messiah

Sen Rick Scott of Florida is currently serving as the chairman of that National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), which is tasked with getting more Republicans elected to the Senate. He was a curious choice considering that in his pre-Senate career he was the head of a hospital chain that was fined billions of dollars for engaging in fraudulent activities.

Not surprisingly, the NRSC is now undergoing some financial hardship. This was brought up during an interview of Scott on Fox News by Martha MacCallum. MacCallum read to Scott from a report in the New York Times that asked “how a record cash haul vanished for Senate Republicans.” She elaborated saying that…

“It says ‘By the end of July National Republican Senatorial Committee had collected a record $181.5 million, but had already spent 95% of it.’ Then it goes to August where you have just $23.2 million left that is ‘less that half of what the Democratic Senatorial Committee had’ ahead of the really intense stage of this whole race that we’re now heading into. How did that happen? Where did all that money go?”

Scott’s reply illustrates just how much trouble the GOP is in under Scott’s mismanagement of their campaign.

Scott: We did the right thing. We spent early. Here’s the problem with campaigns. If you wait until the last month there’s too much static, too much noise out there. so what we did, as soon as out candidates got through their primaries we started helping them. We put up ads with them. Talked about what they believe in. And we started early on to define the Democrats. That’s put us in a position right now that we can not only keep our fifty Republican seats, we also can pick up probably as many – doesn’t mean we’ll get that many – but we’ve got six competitive states where the Democrats are… all the Democrats are underwater.
MacCallum: But Senator, you see a lot of these races that are tightening up in Florida, in Ohio, and these candidates are in need of money. at this point. some of them are pointing fingers at your leadership and saying that it’s not working. What do you say to them?
Scott: Well, Let’s look at the numbers. … Ron Johnson’s gonna win.
MacCallum: He’s behind by about five points right now, right?
Scott: Ron Johnson is either up a little or tied or down barely.

Well, thanks for clearing that up Ricky. So Ron Johnson, the incumbent senator from Wisconsin, is either ahead, tied or behind. That narrows it down to every conceivable possibility. Never mind that even MacCallum knows that Johnson is losing, although she understates the margin. The latest poll has Democrat Mandela Barnes ahead by seven points. Democrats are also leading or competitive in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, and Scott’s own Florida.

Scott goes on to cite the 2020 Georgia senate race between Sen. Raphael Warnock and the then-incumbent Kelly Loeffler. He said that Warnock won because Republicans failed to define him early and that that Loeffler was expected to win easily. That’s revisionist recent history, because that race was always close and ended up being decided in a runoff.

So Scott is citing a race that Republicans lost in 2020, and a current race where a Democrat is ahead of their incumbent, as examples of how he is doing everything right. Fine. Let’s not tell him. Poor guy can’t even fool Fox News.

Karine Jean-Pierre Has to School Peter Doocy of Fox News that Lower Gas Prices Are a Good Thing

The mission of Fox News from its inception has been to deceive their viewers by distorting the stories they present in order to advance the interests of corporations and the wealthy. They feverishly twist their “alternative facts” into maliciously negative attacks on Democrats and progressives seeking to benefit the majority of the American people.

Fox News, Peter Doocy, Karine Jean-Pierre

Fox’s White House correspondent, Peter Doocy, is the frontline propagator of their propaganda. He occupies a seat at the daily press briefings tasked by his bosses, the Murdochs, to manufacture phony controversies and try to embarrass the President and his spokespeople with “gotcha” questions. Unfortunately for Fox News, he has never been very good at it.

RELATED: HAH! Jen Psaki Says Doocy’s Fox News Questions Would ‘Make Anyone Sound Like a Stupid S.O.B.’

On Friday Doocy sought to waste the time of every in the room by asking Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre a question that reeked of bias and ignorance. Jean-Pierre replied with a remarkable degree of patience, considering the blitheringly idiotic inquisition by Doocy:

Doocy: Why is the president bragging today about gas prices?
Jean-Pierre: Because it’s gone down.

That’s right! The answer was as simple as that. But it was way above Doocy’s capacity to grasp it. Or perhaps just outside of his mandate as a disinformation disseminator. And yet, after being politely told why President Biden was happy about the trend in gas prices, Doocy felt compelled to resume his badgering:

Doocy: It’s still $1.72 higher than when he took office.
Jean-Pierre: It has come down in a way we haven’t seen, it’s trajectory coming down, in over a decade.
Doocy: It’s still over $4.00 a gallon though. Is that good?
Jean-Pierre: You want to talk to a nurse or a teacher or a firefighter, if having that little bit of breathing room doesn’t matter to them. […] That matters. And the reason we’re seeing that is because of the work this President has done the last several months.

For the record, gas prices have been falling for two months. In much of the country the average price is below $4.00 per gallon, a decline of 20%. Most consumers would regard that as positive news.

While oil is an international commodity that no president can control, Biden can take some of the credit for the savings due to his affirmative action. Early on he ordered the release of a million barrels of oil a day from the strategic reserve. He put pressure on oil companies and stations not to gouge consumers as oil prices were falling. He supported alternative energy and vehicles, which reduces demand while supplies were increasing, which drives down prices.

In the meantime, Fox News and the Republican Party they shill for, seem to be upset that the American people are saving money on gas. While they steadfastly blamed Biden as the prices rose, they are now criticizing him for the decline. And Doocy’s insinuation that people should still be mad because gas costs more than it did in 2020, ignores the reality of the marketplace. There’s a reason that Biden once referred to Doocy as a “stupid SOB.”

When Biden took office the nation was still suffering from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic at its peak, and people were not traveling very much or even commuting to work. That absence of demand is what brought gas prices down so artificially low. Since Biden’s inauguration the pandemic situation, and the economy, have improved considerably. Consequently, people are back to work, they’re taking trips, and they are considerably more confident that they can spend money – even with inflation – without risking their financial welfare.

RELATED: Biden Brilliantly Debunks the Lies By Trump and Fox News About Energy Production in America

All of that is positive news for the nation and the people. But leave it to Fox News to try to find some apocalyptic spin that they can use to foment fear and make people’s lives miserable. Because they want people to to be miserable in order to have something to bash Biden with. And stirring up political hostilities is much higher on their priority list than telling the truth. Especially if the truth might make people happier and look more favorably toward the President.

Republicans Get Pissy When Buttigieg Praises Biden Bill that Makes EVs More Affordable

The Republican Party seems to be committed to establishing itself as an anti-American confederacy that is focused only on acquiring and maintaining money and power. They demonstrate on a daily basis that their only loyalty is to the twice-impeached, former reality TV game show host, and aspiring authoritarian dictator, Donald Trump.

Joe Biden, GOP, Titanic

The GOP (Greedy One Percent) appears to have little interest in advancing any affirmative policies. They have no principles, no ideas, and no purpose other than to obstruct Democrats from implementing the overwhelmingly popular programs addressing reproductive choice, gun safety, climate change, voting rights, tax fairness, healthcare, and more. The record of the past two years validates the success of the Democrats’ efforts. The GOP, by contrast, are dismissing this at their own political peril.

RELATED: Rep Eric Swalwell Says ‘This is Gonna Be a Wave Election Alright…A BLUE One!’

Nevertheless, Republicans remain staunchly devoted to their current perverse agenda of preventing any positive progress on behalf of the American people. They illustrated this again after Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg, appeared on MSNBC to tout the benefits of the “Inflation Reduction Act” offered by President Biden and the Democrats. Buttigieg made several points about the bill’s provisions, which predictably sent the Republican National Committee (RNC) into a tizzy on Twitter:

RNC: Biden Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg defends the green energy handouts — a $7,500 giveaway to wealthy Americans for electric vehicles, which have an average cost of $67K — in the Bidenflation Scam.
Buttigieg: I’m excited about the electric vehicle provisions because what this will do is reduce the price, through tax credits, of an electric vehicle. And if you see that lower sticker price and can afford an EV, you’re also gonna be saving money every day that you own it.

It’s curious that the RNC is so outraged by a $7,500 tax credit that will enable Americans to purchase a clean energy car and save money on fuel, but they aren’t the least bit bothered by billions of dollars going to oil companies who will use it to further pollute the planet.

The RNC also dishonestly tries to mislead by citing the average cost of an electric vehicle. Nobody buys a car based on what the average price is of all makes and models. The presence of BMWs and Mercedes and Audis would make the averages for all sedans also look unattainably high. The truth is that many EVs are available for less than $35,000. And the RNC knows that. However, they went on to disinform with a bit of sarcasm, saying…

RNC: Biden Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg: Electric vehicles are the “best” solution for Americans facing sky-high gas prices
Buttigieg: The best thing we can do for the medium and long term is make sure Americans have more options through greater fuel efficiency, and greater access to vehicles that don’t require gasoline at all. So that Americans don’t have to worry about what’s happening in some Middle Eastern capitol or foreign war zone.

Of course, Buttigieg is right. There is no better option, for the environment as well as people’s pocketbooks, than moving toward a cleaner future in transportation. But the RNC just lamely mocks that notion without putting forward any other proposal that they think would be better.

This is typical of today’s Trumpified Republican Party. The only things they offer are hurdles to block progress and hostility toward those who actually want to make life better for the American people. And their lame attempts to distort reality are easily rebutted, as Buttigieg has proven before…

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

For the past five years Donald Trump and his Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) have been whining petulantly about what they refer to as the “Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax.” It has been a well coordinated effort to refute the documented collusion between Trump and Russia to advance his campaign for president in both 2016 and 2020.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

On Friday the crusade by Fox News to absolve Trump of any liability for colluding with Russia to undermine American democracy hit a snag. Fox’s Senior Trump-fluffer, Tucker Carlson, made a surprising admission during a segment in which he intended to smear President Biden’s record on the economy in general, and gas prices in particular. Carlson embarked on a series of flagrant lies saying that…

“The White House is doing all it can to keep fuel prices high. Biden has just pushed the EU to stop buying Russian oil. It’s payback for getting Trump elected. But the effect is to guarantee higher prices on the international oil market. That means higher prices for you. So this is not an accident. They’re doing it on purpose. This is the “Green New Deal” they couldn’t get through Congress.

First of all, the entire free world has been shunning Russian oil in response to Vladimir Putin’s brutal and unprovoked invasion of Ukraine. That isn’t Biden’s fault. It’s Putin’s. And if Biden has supported that effort to stop funding Russia’s aggression, then he should be commended for taking the principled and moral position.

RELATED: Biden Brilliantly Debunks the Lies By Trump and Fox News About Energy Production in America

More to the point, Carlson’s statement that “It’s payback for getting Trump elected,” is an explicit admission that the so-called “Russia Hoax” was not a hoax after all. Carlson is finally conceding that Russia deliberately interfered in American politics on Trump’s behalf.

Of course, this is something that every well informed American already knew. Trump himself spoke of it during the infamous Helsinki Summit. Even Putin said so when asked “did you direct any of your officials to help” Trump? With Trump standing next him he replied, “Yes, I did.”

What’s more, a bipartisan report from the GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee found that “The Trump campaign’s interactions with Russian intelligence services during the 2016 presidential election posed a “grave” counterintelligence threat [and] detailed how associates of Donald Trump had regular contact with Russians and expected to benefit from the Kremlin’s help.”

That is, by definition, collusion. And it’s also what the Mueller Report concluded, and was testified to by Robert Mueller before Congress. More details on this were documented in the studiously researched book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” by Michael Isikoff and David Corn.

RELATED: Exoneration? Collusion? Obstruction? Trump’s Fate is Sealed By 3 Brief Exchanges with Mueller

As for Carlson’s wholly dishonest assertions regarding the high price of gas, he is unjustifiably blaming Biden for a problem that is occurring worldwide. No president has the ability to control the price of oil. It’s an international commodity. However, if the Biden administration were “doing all it can to keep fuel prices high,” would he have ordered the release of 90 million barrels from the Strategic Oil Reserve? Would he be promoting the expansion of renewable energy (which Carlson also took a shot at in his rant)? Would he have supported the “Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act” that just passed in the House of Representatives?

If Carlson is looking for someone to blame for the continuing high gas prices, he might want to take note that every single Republican in the House voted against the bill to stop greedy oil companies, who are currently raking in record profits, from gouging the American people. And it’s also the Republicans who are opposed to alternative fuels.

So the GOP is happy to allow oil companies to exploit struggling Americans. Just as they were happy to allow Trump to collude with Russia. And Tucker Carlson – the perversely infatuated Putin puppet – is likewise happy to cover for them when they do it.

Fox News Blatantly Lies that Biden ‘Praised’ High Gas Prices When He Actually Criticized Them

It’s another day that ends in “Y” so Fox News is creating another in their perennial series of flagrant falsehoods aimed at maligning Democrats. It’s an awesome burden that they bear to keep coming up with new lies. And President Biden isn’t helping by failing to provide them with actual catastrophes that they can plausibly blame him for.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

On Tuesday morning the official “Message of the Day” as chosen by Fox’s editorial board was that Biden confessed to intentionally raising gas prices and “praised” the increases. That was the wholly contrived narrative introduced by Maria Bartiromo for her segment on the subject following a video clip of Biden commenting on energy matters. An exasperated Bartiromo exclaimed “Look, he just admitted it in that sound bite that this is all intentional. It’s a plan.”

RELATED: Fox News Lies that Poll Shows a ‘Majority’ of Americans Blame Biden for Inflation – It Doesn’t!

Of course Biden never “admitted” anything of the sort. Not even close. But that didn’t stop Fox News from disseminating this deceitful drivel across their media platforms. On the Fox News website they posted a story headlined “President Biden seems to praise high gas prices as ‘incredible transition’ Americans must go through.” For the record, what Biden actually said was…

“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.”

Nowhere in that commentary did Biden suggest that high gas prices were intentional. Nor did he praise or celebrate them. To the contrary, when someone includes the phrase “God willing” in this context, it indicates an explicit desire for relief from hardship. And Biden’s optimism that “the world will be stronger … when this is over” affirms his acknowledgement of the troubles that people are presently enduring, with a hopeful eye toward the future.

To put an even finer point on how wrong the Fox News analysis of this was, Biden later spoke about “what I’ve been able to do to keep it from getting even worse — and it’s bad.” So apparently Fox News regards words like “worse” and “bad” as synonymous with “praise.”

Fox News never bothers to explain why Biden would want to deliberately increase gas prices. Do they think that Biden’s agenda views punishing people at the pump as a strategy that will deliver more votes?

Such logical considerations are foreign to Fox’s faux journalism. To Fox News all that matters is that Biden used the adjective “incredible” to describe the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. And because Fox’s vocabulary is so shallow, they think that the word “incredible” can only mean fantabulous, rather than just notable or uncommon.

Fox News is also fixated on opposing environmentally sound alternatives to fossil fuels, which Biden correctly notes would make the U.S. and the world stronger. In their article they complain that Biden’s policies contributed to the increase in gas prices. Their evidence is that he canceled the Keystone XL pipeline and paused some oil and gas leases on federal lands. Neither of those measures would have any effect on gas prices. The Keystone XL pipeline was slated to move oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast where it was to be shipped overseas. And the leases were withdrawn because the oil companies weren’t using them.

RELATED: Biden Brilliantly Debunks the Lies By Trump and Fox News About Energy Production in America

Another thing that Fox News never bothers to explain is why gas prices are increasing around the world. And in most places the increases are far higher than here in the U.S. In fact, rating the highest gas prices in 170 countries, the U.S. at $4.66 per gallon is way down the list at #106. Does Fox News think that Biden is also president of Norway where gas is twice as much at $9.64 per gallon?

The lies that Fox News is dispensing have already spread to their political affiliates. The New York Post writes that “Biden praises high gas prices as part of ‘incredible transition.'” The Federalist says that “Biden Celebrates Record-High Gas Prices As ‘Incredible Transition.'” The Daily Caller asks “So the high prices are intentional, Joe?” And of course Republicans in Congress (i.e. Marsha Blackburn, Ted Cruz, Rick Scott, Steve Scalise, etc) are regurgitating the false reporting.

The right-wing echo chamber is reverberating with this rubbish. And it will continue as long as they think they can get some political mileage out of it. After which they will have to invent some other fake scandal and start all over again. It’s what they were created to do. It’s why Biden appropriately called them out for being One of the Most Destructive Forces in the U.S. But the only thing that they accomplish is making their audience more stupid every day. And at they they are pretty darn good.

When Biden Shows Compassion for Struggling Americans, Trump’s Spokes-Shill Calls Him a Sociopath

President Biden was in Chicago on Wednesday to give a speech at the 40th Annual Conference of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). It was speech that affirmed his agenda, and that of the Democratic Party, that seeks to restore some semblance of fairness on behalf of working class Americans.

Joe Biden, Tweet

Biden’s speech covered many of the tangible benefits already realized as a result of passage of the American Rescue Plan. He spoke of creating “8.3 million jobs in my first 15 months in office – a record.” He acknowledged that “the unemployment rate now stands at 3.6 percent, the fastest decline in unemployment at the start of any President’s term on record.” And he pointed out that…

“Under my predecessor, the great MAGA king, the deficit increased every single year he was President. The first year of my presidency – the first year, I reduced the deficit – literally reduced the deficit by $350 billion. First year. And this year – and this year, we’re on track to cut the federal deficit by 1 trillion 500 billion dollars – the biggest decline in debt ever in American history.”

Biden also spoke about the “Ultra-MAGA” plan proposed by Republicans that “raises taxes on 75 million American families” [and] “puts Social Security, Medicare … and Medicaid on the chopping block every five years.”

Sadly, albeit predictably, the only thing that the “Ultra-MAGA” crowd was able to focus on were the buzzwords and Biden’s compassionate demeanor. Trump himself was elated that Biden referred to him as “the Great MAGA King” which only affirms his lust for tyrannical power. But nowhere was the “Biden Derangement Syndrome” more apparent, and abhorrent, than in the reactions by the Republican National Committee and Donald Trump’s spokes-shill, Liz Harrington.

The RNC watched a clip from Biden’s speech, which they posted to Twitter believing that his emotional tone of voice somehow made him look bad. Harrington agreed and retweeted the clip with her warped opinion that Biden’s heartfelt feelings were akin to sociopathy. Biden said…

“Remember those long lines you’d see on the television and people lining up in all kinds of vehicles just to get a box of food in their trunk? How quickly we forget people were hurting. And what did the MAGA crowd want to do? Forget it. Forget it. God, this is the United States of America. The idea that people would have to wait in line an hour or hour and a half to get a box of food in their trunk – it’s just unbelievable.”

And the RNC and Harrington replied…

So Harrington thinks that showing concern for the hardships that people endure, and wanting to help them, is “sociopathic”? That explains a lot. It explains why Republicans are so determined to provide benefits for the wealthy and for greedy corporations. Their definitions are severely distorted in a manner that makes them think that helping ordinary people is an abomination, and therefore, catering to millionaires and billionaires is an act of charity. Thanks for clearing that up, Liz.

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

For the past few months President Biden’s approval ratings have been mired in the low 40s. It is a situation that has frustrated him and his fellow Democrats as the midterm elections approach. If his polling doesn’t improve it could portend severe losses and the nightmare prospect of Republicans assuming control of both houses of Congress.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

On Tuesday Biden addressed the issue that is paramount on the minds of most voters: the economy. He held a press conference where he spoke about the burdens faced by the American people due to inflation and other economic pressures (video below). His speech clearly laid out the differences between his agenda and that of the Republican Party. And one segment of the speech encapsulated the message that could turn around the prospects of Democrats if it were effectively communicated. Biden said that…

“Americans have a choice right now between two paths, reflecting two very different sets of values.

“My plan attacks inflation and grows the economy by lowering costs for working families, giving workers well-deserved raises, reducing the deficit by historic levels, and making big corporations and the very wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.

“The other path is the ultra-MAGA plan put forward by congressional Republicans to raise taxes on working families; lower the incomes of American workers; threaten the sacred programs Americans count on like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid; and give break after break to big corporations and billionaires — just like they did the last time they held power when their top priority was a reckless $2 trillion tax cut going — the majority of that going to the very wealthiest Americans, which ballooned the deficit, and not a penny of it was paid for.”

That’s it. Democrats are for “lowering costs for working families,” and “making big corporations and the very wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.” Republicans are for “the ultra-MAGA plan” that would lower incomes, threaten Social Security, and give breaks to the wealthy and big business.

If Democrats can drive home those points to the people, they will win handily in November. And Biden also noted that “Republicans have offered plenty of blame but not a single solution.” In fact, the GOP is not merely lacking solutions, they actively oppose them. They prefer to let the American people suffer so that they can use their hardship as a political weapon against Biden and the Democrats.

As an example of the two paths that Biden spoke of, a reporter asked the President about remarks made by Sen. Rick Scott of Florida. Scott said that…

“The most effective thing Joe Biden can do to solve the inflation crisis he created is resign. He’s the problem. […] Joe Biden is unwell. He’s unfit for office. He’s incoherent, incapacitated, and confused.”

And those are the sort of infantile insults that are the core of the GOP’s political strategy. Scott is also the chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. It’s his job to design the policy agenda for the party. And the plan that he announced recently would raise taxes on working families and sunset Social Security and Medicare.

In other words, Republicans are, as usual, promising to give every advantage to the rich, while giving only unfulfillable promises of trickling down to everyone else. It has never worked in the past, and it won’t work now. Democrats need to get that message out quickly and repeatedly for the next six months if they hope to prevail in November. And it wouldn’t hurt either if Congress and the Department of Justice moved more expeditiously on indicting Donald Trump.
