Desperate or Delusional? Trump Lies that Biden Admitted There Was Election Fraud in 2020

The fact that Donald Trump is a textbook example of a pathological liar isn’t going to make any headlines. His innate, self-serving aversion to the truth has been well documented. And despite the frequency of his deliberate diversions from reality, he persists in prevaricating with an utter lack of the shame that even a marginally decent person would muster.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

On Thursday morning Trump provided yet another example of his unabashed bullshittery. In a message posted by his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Trump reveled in what he thought (or pretended to think) was a concession by President Biden to his “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him:

“President Biden admitted yesterday, in his own very different way, that the 2020 election may very well have been a fraud, which I know it was. I’m sure his representatives, who work so hard to make it look legit, are not happy.”

Of course, Biden never “admitted” anything of the sort. In his psychotic state, Trump is either making this up or imagining it. Or perhaps a little of both. What Trump is deceitfully referring to are remarks Biden made in his press conference the day before. What Biden actually said was…

“I’m confident that we can take the case to the American people that the people they should be voting for – who are going to oversee whether your elections, in fact, are legit or not – should not be those who are being put up by the Republicans to determine that they’re going to be able to change the outcome of the election.”

And later in an exchange with Allison Harris of News Nation…

Harris: Speaking of voting rights legislation, if this isn’t passed, do you still believe the upcoming election will be fairly conducted and its results will be legitimate?
Biden: Well, it all depends on whether or not we’re able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election. [,..] Remember how we thought not that many people were going to show up to vote in the middle of a pandemic? We had the highest voter turnout in the history of the United States of America.

In both statements Biden was clearly referring to upcoming elections in 2022 and 2024. He was not – as Trump said – talking about the 2020 election at all, which has been hailed by Trump’s own Department of Homeland Security as the “most secure in American history.” All fifty states certified the election results, including those led by Republicans. And Trump lost some sixty court cases that alleged election fraud because he couldn’t produce a shred of evidence.

Biden has good cause to be concerned about future elections considering the efforts by Republicans to pass state legislation that suppresses the votes of likely Democratic constituencies. And the GOP candidates for posts that oversee elections in many states are pro-authoritarian extremists campaigning on promises to take elections out of the hands of voters, and place them into partisan legislatures.

These are things that worry Biden (and many Americans), and is what he was talking about in his press conference. But he was not in any way agreeing with Trump’s flagrant falsehoods about election fraud in 2020. To the contrary, Biden was encouraged by the record voter turnout in 2020, despite significant obstacles. His press secretary, Jen Psaki, affirmed that on Twitter, and in an interview Thursday morning on – of all places – Fox News:

“The point he was raising was both that in 2020, even amongst challenging circumstances, efforts to suppress the vote, and in the midst of a pandemic, there was record turnout – Democrats and Republicans – record turnout to go to the polls. And the point he was making was that the former president asked a number of states – seven or more in fact – to overturn the outcome of the election.”

Meanwhile, at his latest cult rally in Arizona, Trump literally advocated that Republicans should cheat in upcoming elections:

“We have more people than they do, but they know politics and they know cheating. I sometimes say, ‘Well, would the Republicans ever do what they did?’ […] I say if it’s good for them, why aren’t the Republicans doing the same kind of thing with the ballots?”

First of all, they most certainly do not have more people than Democrats. Republicans are a distinct minority of the electorate. They do, however, have more cheaters. So if that’s what he meant, we’d have to give it to him.

More to the point, Trump is urging his cult followers to commit illegal acts because he falsely believes that Democrats are doing so. That wouldn’t be a valid justification to break the law even if it were true. But if Trump knew or cared anything about the law, he wouldn’t currently be the subject of numerous criminal investigations.

Lara Trump’s Fox News Fantastical Fact-Free Revisionist History: Trump vs Biden: The First Year

It’s that time of year again. The time when the media loves to contrive mostly irrelevant milestones in order to shape easily digested narratives that invariably oversimplify complex political and social matters. And as we approach the one year anniversary of President Joe Biden’s inauguration, the spinners are coming out to create their partisan perspectives of what occurred in the recent past.

Fox News, Lara Trump

Prominent among the propagandist class is, of course, Fox News. On this occasion Fox’s Sean Hannity invited Fox News contributor Lara Trump, to deliver her perverse version of events (video below), and to compare Biden’s record to that of her father-in-law, Donald Trump. That’s not biased at all, is it? It’s the sort of “fair and balanced” analysis that Fox News is known for.

Ms. Trump began her stroll down memory-hole lane with a wildly distorted retelling of Trump’s work ethic while in the White House:

“I’m old enough to remember when we had a president who worked all day everyday for the American people, and by the way, took no salary. Of course I’m talking about President Donald Trump who in four years in office made $4.00. That’s right, because he had to take $1.00 a year. And I struggle to figure out any job where you could just not show up for a quarter of the days and keep your job.”

Good point! And indeed, Trump did not keep his job. Also, somebody might want to remind Lara about “Executive Time,” a euphemism coined to describe Trump’s notorious laziness. Leaked records from Trump’s White House reveal that he spent 60% of his time watching TV, phoning Fox News hosts, and tweeting undeserved exaltations of himself or bitter attacks on his foes. And that was when he wasn’t sermonizing at his cult rallies or golfing. Speaking of which, Lara noted that…

“I remember when the press and the Democrats would go crazy if Donald Trump got anywhere near a golf course. He clearly wasn’t golfing a quarter of his presidency.”

Actually, it was almost exactly a quarter of his presidency that Trump spent on the links. The documented truth is that Trump played golf at least 298 times (an average of once every five days) at a cost of $144 million taxpayer dollars. And most of those dollars went straight into Trump’s pocket as it paid for accommodations at his hotels and golf resorts for family, staff, members of Congress, Secret Service, political organizations, and even foreign operatives with business before the U.S. government. It shows what a trifling and dishonest dodge his bragging about taking a one dollar a year salary is.

Ms. Trump went on to praise Daddy-in-law for a string of imaginary accomplishments, including “the biggest tax cut in American history” (that overwhelming benefitted corporations and the wealthy; “remov[ing] so many regulations on businesses” (that made them more profitable at the expense of safety and the environment); “And he had also gotten rid of ISIS” (which will come as surprise to ISIS that is still very active).

In closing, Lara criticized Biden for taking “vacations” to his home in Delaware:

“I think it’s time to stop vacationing Joe Biden. I think it’s time, instead of walking your dog masked up on the beach in Delaware – by the way we still don’t know what happened to the first dog – It’s time to roll your sleeves up, get to work in the White House, cause vacationing clearly is not working.”

That’s a bold critique coming from the daughter-in-law of the president who spent the most time away from work in history. For the record, Biden was not on vacation when he went home. He was working remotely and getting a fair amount done. For instance: a major COVID-19 relief package, a bipartisan infrastructure bill, historically low unemployment, solid economic growth, the most federal judge confirmations in forty years, and getting more than 71% of American adults vaccinated.

That’s not to say that there haven’t been setbacks. The Build Back Better bill and the voting rights bills are still stuck in congressional limbo because not a single Republican will put the interests of the America people above their partisan political interests. Consequently, Biden is suffering a painfully low approval rating. However, he’s still doing better than Trump by a considerable margin.

“As Biden prepares to enter his second year in office, his average approval rating during the first year of his presidency (48.9%) is second only to former President Donald Trump, who had the lowest first-year rating of any post-World War II president, at 38.4%, according to Gallup.”

Democrats just need to do a better job of communicating their successes. And if they can do that without lying, the way Lara Trump is doing, they will eventually reap the reward.

Loathsome Laura Ingraham of Fox News Applauds Report that Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley Has COVID

The heinous inhumanity of contemporary conservatism has been evident for years. It is an ideology that delights in the hardship of others, whether they be political opponents or citizens who have the audacity to be poor, non-white, or (gasp) Democrats. And their openly hostile attitude toward those they regard as adversaries has been spiraling downward since the advent of the Cult of Donald Trump, who also gets his kicks from people suffering.

Fox News, Laura Ingraham

To prove that point, Fox News Senior White Nationalist, Laura Ingraham, offered another episode of her continuing segment “Positively Boosted” on her program on Monday. The purpose of the segment is to callously mock people who have been diagnosed with COVID after having been vaccinated. It is a despicable concept that reveals her perverse pleasure in the suffering of others.

In Monday’s episode Ingraham reported that Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was diagnosed with COVID. But it wasn’t enough to merely report this news that any decent person would consider unfortunate, Ingraham actually applauded with glee while doing so. “The triple vaxxed Joint Chiefs chairman Mark Milley,” Ingraham gushed, “our favorite, Mark Milley, tested positive for COVID yesterday.”

Ingraham and her guest, Raymond Arroyo of the Eternal Word Television Network, went on to cheer the illnesses of Marine Corps commandant, General David Berger, and the Vatican’s secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin. They closed the segment with their wholly disingenuous well wishes that “they’re all healthy and fine. But stop pushing your mandates.”

Note that she said that from where she is remotely broadcasting due to the mandates imposed by Fox News. What’s more, Milley’s diagnosis is proof that mandates, like those imposed by the military, are necessary as a matter of military readiness. As CNN reports

“[T]here were 32,912 COVID cases in service members around the world, marking a dramatic increase from one week earlier, when there were 13,940 cases across the military. Just before Christmas, the number was a far lower, at 5,285 cases.”

Milley is Ingraham’s “favorite” because he has had concerns about diversity and racism in the ranks, which she called a “far-left Marxist racist ideology.” She may also have been listening to her Fox News confederate, Tucker Carlson, who maligned Milley for the same reason, saying – in a feat of epic projection – that “He’s not just a pig, he’s stupid.” All because Milley told a congressional hearing that…

“I do think it’s important for those of us in uniform to be open minded and be widely read. The United States Military Academy is a university. And it is important that we train and we understand. And I want to understand white rage. And I’m white, and I want to understand it. So what is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America? What caused that?”

Perhaps Ingraham was also triggered by Milley’s remarks published in the book Peril, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. The book reported that…

“Milley took top secret action to limit President Trump’s ability to make strike or to use nuclear weapons. […] Milley is deeply shaken from the assault on the Capitol on [January] 6th. He believes Trump is unstable, unpredictable, and Milley believes that Trump is in serious mental decline.”

For the record, Gen. Milley is a career Army officer who was appointed to his post by Trump in 2018 and confirmed by the Senate on a vote of 89 to 1 (Jeff Merkley, a Democrat, was the sole “no” vote). But despite Trump’s promotion, as he often does, he later turned on Milley and appeared on the Newsmax program hosted by his former press secretary, Sean Spicer, to respond to the excerpts from Woodward’s book by accusing Milley of treason.

The anti-vax positions by Ingraham and Fox News are prolonging and exacerbating the pandemic, particularly among their own viewers. And Ingraham’s idiotic and insensitive segment mocking people who got COVID after being vaccinated is just more dangerous disinformation. She is discouraging people from getting vaccinated by falsely implying that vaccines don’t work. Which results in the virus spreading and infecting more people, including some who were vaccinated.

What Ingraham doesn’t bother to mention is that the vaccinated will generally have mild symptoms, if any, while the unvaccinated are far more likely to wind up in the hospital, or the morgue. But those pesky facts don’t deter Ingraham or Fox News from spreading lies that put people’s lives at risk. In fact, as can be seen in this instance, they actually get off on it.

Poor Baby: Trump Throws Tantrum at Rally Over DirecTV Dropping OAN, His Favorite Propaganda Channel

This week Donald Trump’s ultra-rightist media echo chamber suffered a crushing blow. One America News Network was informed by DirecTV that its contract would not be renewed when it expires in April. That is a devastating development because DirecTV is OAN’s biggest source of both audience and revenue.

Donald Trump, Snowflakes

There is considerable cause to believe that OAN cannot survive without DirecTV’s patronage. The channel would not have even existed but for DirecTV’s former parent corporation AT&T bankrolling the shameless Trump-fluffers at OAN.

However, as time went on, maintaining a relationship with the struggling network has become more of a financial risk than benefit. OAN is currently being sued by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software for propagating Trump’s lies about election fraud. Separately, they are being sued by two former Georgia election workers who are victims of Trump’s election deceptions that were prominently pushed by OAN.

It was inevitable that Trump would feel compelled to wax hysterical about the OAN debacle. After all, it is the TV home of his official spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, who makes nearly daily appearances, like this one. So the day after the DirecTV announcement, Trump took the opportunity to lash out at his cult rally in Arizona, praising OAN and confessing that “I watch it all the time,” and laughably that “You really get the truth.” Plus, it’s cute that this slobbering endorsement of OAN is being aired by Newsmax, as can be seen in the video below:

“All I can tell you is that the people that are telling the truth in America, like One America News (OAN), are being threatened. Does everybody like One America? I love One America. By the way, these cameras, you know they’re back there, they’re covering this, they don’t like hearing this stuff. Do you see the red lights? They go off one after another as soon as I’s gonna mention CNN and how bad their ratings are. You see the CNN camera go off.”

Trump’s fairy tale about camera lights going off is one of his standard lines at these rallies. And of course, it is utterly fictional. But his gushing affinity for OAN is the real thing. There is nothing that Trump likes better than moon-eyed TV hacks drenching him with adoration. But he was just getting started. He continued:

“But you know what? One America News has done a great job. And here’s the story, what just happened. The woke executives, I don’t know what the hell they’re doing. They have so much debt. AT&T is a company that is in serious trouble. And they need AT&T, and AT&T is saying that they may no longer agree to carry this network that’s doing very well. You know why? Because people told them not to do it. So maybe what we should do is not use AT&T.”

Trump’s goto insult against any enterprise that he dislikes is that they are failing, no matter how successful they are. Conversely, he builds up those he favors, such as his saying here that OAN is “doing very well.” They aren’t, and never have been. However, Trump is, once again, demonstrating his ignorance by attacking AT&T, which no longer owns DirecTV. Consequently, AT&T had nothing to do with DirecTV’s decision to cut ties with OAN.

Nevertheless, Trump is urging his cult disciples to boycott AT&T. Although he goes about it in a typically bizarre, Trumpian manner wherein he rants that “I’m not gonna use the word ‘boycott.’ I will not say ‘Boycott AT&T,'” in his passively aggressive voice that clearly indicates his desire to provoke a boycott.

The good news is that Trump is an increasingly impotent character who can’t even influence the behavior of his most devoted and glassy-eyed fans. He has called for a boycott of AT&T in the past, without any discernible impact. The same goes for his unheeded decree to quit Twitter. He is, in fact, the undisputed King of Cancel Culture, attempting to incite boycotts against numerous other companies that he has deemed enemies. The only problem for him is that no one appears to be listening, and none of his targets have suffered in the slightest. So sad!

Trump’s Favorite Propaganda Peddler, One America News (OAN), Gets Dumped By DirecTV (AT&T)

The right-wing media landscape has long been dominated by Fox News. But in the Era of the Trump Cult a couple of wannabe “news” manglers have popped up to challenge the King of the Shill. And one of those challengers just got chit-canned by their founder and biggest financial supporter.

Donald Trump, OAN

DirecTV has announced that they will cease to carry One American News Network (OAN) in their channel offerings. That’s a profoundly significant development considering how OAN came to be. DirecTV’s majority owner, AT&T, was recently exposed as having bankrolled the ultra-rightist outlet. As reported last October…

“A Reuters review of court records shows the role AT&T played in creating and funding OAN, a network that continues to spread conspiracy theories about the 2020 election and the COVID-19 pandemic. […]

“AT&T has been a crucial source of funds flowing into OAN, providing tens of millions of dollars in revenue, court records show. Ninety percent of OAN’s revenue came from a contract with AT&T-owned television platforms, including satellite broadcaster DirecTV.”

With the loss of AT&T’s backing it is questionable as to whether OAN has the resources to continue as a viable operation. They are attempting to transition to streaming platforms, but persuading people to pay for their shameless, Trump-fluffing programming may prove to be an unattainable goal.

The futility of that effort isn’t mitigated by the support OAN gets from Donald Trump, where his official spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, is a regular guest. It will be fun to see how Trump reacts to this news. Expect to see some fireworks from the perpetually pissed off ex-prez. Not that it will do any good. [UPDATE: Right on cue, Trump threw a tantrum the next day at his rally in Arizona]

Despite months of Trump hyping OAN – and simultaneously bashing Fox News – OAN has not budged from their position at the bottom of the heap. Their audience is too low for Nielsen to measure. And losing millions of potential DirecTV viewers isn’t going to help.

The cancelation by DirecTV isn’t the only problem that OAN is facing. They are currently being sued by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software for disseminating Trump’s lies about election fraud. Separately, they are being sued by two former Georgia election workers who are victims of Trump’s election deceptions that were prominently pushed by OAN.

It is long past time that OAN pay a price for their plague of poisonous propaganda. How can any television service distribute a channel that has actually advocated mass executions for “tens of thousands” of people who the network delusionally claimed were trying “to carry out a coup against the [Trump] presidency” because they didn’t buy into Trump’s election fraud lies?

And that goes for Verizon FIOS, that still carries OAN, and any streaming service that is considering doing so. It is simply irresponsible to propagate such transparently false and dangerous programming. Hopefully the pending litigation will cause some of these companies to reconsider their relationship with OAN. And Newsmax and Fox News while they’re at it.

THANKS! Trump Spokesperson Convincingly Explains Why No One Should Vote for Republicans

The volume of disinformation that regularly emanates from Donald Trump and his self-serving, perpetual propaganda machine is unprecedented. Trump himself has been documented to have told more than 30,000 lies during his occupation of the White House. But now his super Pac hack is uncharacteristically telling the truth about the Republican Party.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

RELATED: Cowardly Republican Party to Require Their Presidential Candidates to Boycott 2024 Debates

Despite Trump’s record of deceit, every now and again someone in the Trump realm inadvertently allows a morsel of truth to escape into the wild. And on Friday morning the culprit was Trump’s official mouthpiece (and Twitter ban defying spokes-shill), Liz Harrington. In one of her regular appearances on the shamelessly Trump-fluffing One America News Network (OAN), Harrington was fed the softest of balls by OAN’s Natalie Harp (video below):

“The Republican Party isn’t the establishment party anymore. It’s the people’s party. They’re determining the direction of the party in terms of legislation, America First. That’s not what they’re used to. And yet somehow they think that they can point out the Cheneys and the Bushs. Don’t they realize we all rejected that during the primaries in 2016?”

Let’s just set aside the nonsense that the party that gets the most financial and institutional support from corporations and wealthy elites can be portrayed as “the people’s party.” And it is those one-percenters who have always determined the party’s direction. It is, however, notable that Harp admits her inclusion in the Trump Cult saying that WE all ejected that during the primaries in 2016.” But it was Harrington’s response that let the cat out of the hag:

“They [Republicans] all been exposed for the frauds that they are. They’re as fraudulent as the last election. And the people have seen through that and they want the real thing. They don’t want another fake substitute, another fake election where there’s really no difference between the two candidates on the ballot. They might say they are a different party, but the end result, they’re not the same. The Cheneys of the world, the Pelosis of the world, the McConnells, they all want endless wars. They all want open borders. They all want bad trade deals for the United States. They do not care about our sovereignty. They do not care about our jobs. And they can pretend to care about issues of the day.”

And there you have it. Directly from the horse’s mouth. Trump’s tweet-meister reveals that the Republican Party is full of warmongering, immigrant-bashing, economy-destroying “frauds.” Democrats and most rational Americans have known that for years (decades?). But it’s good to hear them confess their corruption publicly.

Trump himself has emerged as the most anti-Republican Republican in the party’s history. His hostility toward leaders of the Party such as Mitch McConnell, whom he now calls the “broken old crow,” is typical of his lust for vengeance against anyone showing signs of dwindling devotion. Trump has even demanded that his cult disciples refrain from donating to the GOP, and place their offerings on his plate instead. “No more money for RINOS,” Trump decreed, “Send your donation to [his] Save America PAC.”

This might seem like good news for Democrats. With Trump bashing the GOP and trying to intercept their donations, it should benefit Democratic candidates in the upcoming midterm elections. And it probably will, to a degree. However, Trump’s influence appears to be waning within the Republican world. The most recent party financial disclosure shows that the GOP raised $140 million in 2021. Which is still less than the $146 million Democrats raised. But it shows that GOP donors aren’t heeding Trump’s order to send their funds to him.

RELATED: Trump Orders His Cult To ‘Drop Off of Twitter’ and Calls For It To Be Outlawed

You know Trump’s gotta hate the fact that people are ignoring his orders. Perhaps that’s why he dispatched Harrington to OAN to throw more mud at his fellow Republicans. Because, in the end, all Trump cares about is how much money and adoration he can collect from his dimwitted followers. The more he sees those measures decline, the more panicked and incoherent he will become. And by that standard, he is already pretty far gone.

Glenn Beck Visits Fox News with a Doomsday Prophesy that Scares the Snot Out of Tucker Carlson

Y’all better get ready, people. The End Times are upon us. And that divine prognosticator, Glenn Beck, sees it all clearly. And, praise Gawd, Fox News is there to welcome the Rev. Beck and disseminate his “wisdom” to the masses who gather nightly to soak in the sermons of Friar Tucker Carlson.

Glenn Beck Messiah

On Tuesday night’s episode of Carlson’s Fright Wing Glower Hour, Carlson handed his pulpit over to Beck to propound on the impending apocalypse. It’s a subject that Beck knows well and has been predicting for years. But this time he really means it. So take heed and prepare yourself for the long awaited and total decline of Western civilization that Beck imparted unto Carlson, saying that…

“This is not an American problem. This is the entire West going away by 2030. And I think – you know the World Economic Forum just war gamed the next economic collapse. I think that’s coming in the next couple of years. I could be wrong. I usually am on timing. But when that happens, it is lights out. It is over. They will control your food, your water, your work, your education, your banking, your money, gasoline. […] They are going to bankrupt the entire West. And only the elites are going to be able to have money, the food they want, the jobs they want, etc., etc. We will be left in the dust. We must educate ourselves right now.”

Let that sink in. The Western economy is going to collapse in a couple of years and “the entire West [is] going away by 2030.” If that doesn’t scare the bejeezus out of you, just take a look at Carlson’s glazed over gaze. He has an encrusted expression of utter dread throughout Beck’s ominous oratory. If it didn’t blink a few times you’d think it was a cardboard cutout. Carlson is clearly frozen with fear.

And why shouldn’t he be? With President Biden in the White House orchestrating a socialist takeover of America by mandating life-saving vaccines to combat a deadly pandemic, and democracy zealots trying to make it easier for people of color, undocumented immigrants, and (gasp) Democrats, to cancel out the votes of white, Trumpian Republicans, and climate change (oops, that one’s real, and they aren’t worried about it). Given the prospects of this nightmarish future, the end can’t come too soon.

If you doubt Beck’s premonitions, be aware that he has predicted similar catastrophes before, so he must know what he’s talking about. Prior to the 2020 election, Beck prophesized that “If the Republicans don’t win in this next election, I think we are officially at the end of the country as we know it.” But that’s just the most recent warning.

Preceding that Beck said that ObamaCare would be the end of country, and that Obama’s reelection would be the end of the country, and that gay marriage would be the end of the country, and that Common Core education reform would be the end of the country, and that fluorides poisoning our vital bodily fluids would be the end of the country (oh wait, that one may have been Dr. Strangelove), and even that electing Trump would be a disaster because he was “dangerously unhinged.”

Never mind that Beck also once said that that “So much of what I used to believe was either always a sham or has been made into a sham.” He has since recanted that confession and is now confidant that his shams were the real thing. And Carlson is a true believer, despite the fact that his own Fox News lawyers once defended him in a defamation lawsuit by successfully arguing that no reasonable person would take him seriously.

So perhaps it is finally time to pack it in and set sail for whatever dystopia these Judgment Day deplorables are prepping for. If the Rapture is imminent, you wouldn’t want to get left behind, would you?

UPDATE: Beck has COVID (again) and it’s “getting into my lungs.” So he’s taking Ivermectin and wheezing through an interview with Fox’s Mark Levin.

Trump Goes SCHIZO on GOP Senator for Shooting Down His ‘Big Lie’ About Election Fraud

One thing you can say for Donald Trump is that he is persistent. Or more accurately, as stubborn as a constipated mule. It’s been more than year that Trump has been flinging his utterly baseless allegations of election fraud. And for all of that time – and through some sixty court cases – he has failed to produce a shred of evidence.

Donald Trump

What Trump has done is to rant hysterically that he is the victim (as always) of the Crime of the Century.” He has watched as even ultra-partisan “fraudits” proved the election was fairly conducted. And he has chickened out of his own challenge to debate the subject.

On Sunday Trump got another dose of dishonor. During an interview on ABC’s This Week, Republican Sen. Mike Rounds of South Dakota told George Stephanopoulos that Trump’s “Big Lie” about election fraud was a fallacy, saying that…

“As a part of our due diligence, we looked at over 60 different accusations made in multiple states. While there were some irregularities, there were none of the irregularities which would have risen to the point where they would have changed the vote outcome in a single state. The election was fair — as fair as we’ve seen. We simply did not win the election as Republicans for the presidency.”

As you might imagine, this triggered Trump into another infantile Twitter tirade. In a tweet posted by his (Twitter ban defying spokes-shill), Trump unleashed an extended harangue of hatred aimed at the GOP senator who, in Trump’s view, was committing sacrilege.

Trump seethed that Rounds “just went woke on the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020.” He complained that Rounds ignored the nonexistent election fraud despite what Trump falsely said was “massive evidence to the contrary” Trump whined that Rounds “found the election to be ok—just fine. Is he crazy or just stupid?” And that was just for starters.

Trump continued saying that “The only reason he did this is because he got my endorsement and easily won his state in 2020.” So Trump thinks that he’s responsible for a Republican winning in the blood red state of South Dakota. He went on to affirm the cult status of his “movement,” saying that it’s “only the weak who will break away.” And then Trump dropped the pièce de résistance: “I will never endorse this jerk again. Which probably has the senator from South Dakota shaking in his boots.

Trump unloaded on what he regards as the source of the problem, saying that It’s “The Radical Left Democrats and RINOS, like ‘Senator’ Mike Rounds [who are] destroy[ing] our Nation!” But he may need to broaden his attack to include Fox News host Brian Kilmeade. The ordinarily obsequious Kilmeade told Fox News’ Howard Kurtz (video below) that…

“In life, you have to learn to lose [and that] If you did, in fact, get screwed out of this election, put together an A-team list of lawyers – not the ones we witnessed – and show us the districts and show us how. I have not seen any of that.”

So Kilmeade is maligning not just Trump, but also Rudy Giuliani and the rest of Trump legal hacks. That, however, is not an indication that Kilmeade or Fox News has moderated their partisan biases. Kilmeade also said that…

“It defies logic to think a President could win by seven million votes who never left his basement, who couldn’t put together a clear speech, who never engaged in any challenging interview, who really struggled through every debate, could actually win this election.”

None of that is remotely consistent with reality. But it does show that Kilmeade is still fully on board with Trump’s election fraud lies, despite his admission that there is no evidence of it. That’s exactly how a cult works. Believe whatever you are told to believe and don’t ask questions. And anyone who strays from the orthodoxy is an enemy.

HUH? McCarthy Accuses Democrats of Politicizing Trump’s January 6th Political Insurrection

The perversion of rational thought from within the ranks of the Republican Party is one of the most disturbing developments arising from the Dystopian Era of Trump. It’s bad enough that America has to endure the rancid, imbecilic incoherence of Donald Trump himself, but his impact on the party that he leads just makes matters so much worse.

Donald Trump, Kevin McCarthy

On Sunday morning, the Republican minority leader in the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy, provided an unsettling illustration of the descent of the GOP borg-mind into fantastical delusion. McCarthy was “interviewed” by Fox News Senior Trump-Fluffer, Maria Bartiromo. And during this episode of programmed propaganda, McCarthy sought to blame Democrats for “politicizing” the Trump-incited riots. He said that…

“You watched what they did last week while we were out, trying to politicize January 6th. And everybody believes that what happened on January 6th was wrong beyond wrong. But as just you showed that clip, Speaker Pelosi, and some are doing the research, using ‘Hamilton,’ a fundraiser they say, that was used back in October 2020 for ActBlue.”

Wow. Just WOW! McCarthy is SHOCKED that a politically motivated attack on a political institution directed against politicians in order to overturn a politically contentious election is viewed as being political. How the heck could that happen? You don’t suppose it was because McCarthy and the GOP were “trying to politicize January 6th.”

Perhaps McCarthy provided the answer to his own befuddlement in his brief diatribe. After all, he began by noting that “last week while we were out” the events memorializing the deadly insurrection last year were attended only by Democrats. McCarthy’s party, at his direction, made the patently political choice to snub the solemn observances of the day.

Further tainting the affair with blatant partisanship, McCarthy falsely stated that “everybody believes that what happened on January 6th was wrong beyond wrong.” However, polls show that a majority of gullible Republicans believe that the insurrection was a patriotic defense of freedom. And Trump himself has been denying for months that anything wrong happened that day (See also Tucker Carlson). In Trump’s view the criminal mob was comprised of peaceful protestors, and it was the American people who voted on Election Day, November 3, 2021, who were the “real” insurrections.

McCarthy went on to make a glaringly political attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for something he didn’t quite manage to articulate. That was followed by his whining that Democrats held a fundraiser in October of 2020, that had nothing to do with the insurrection that took place three months later.

There is no one in the Republican Party who is more political than McCarthy. Remember, he’s the guy who originally criticized Trump for failing to call off his insurrectionists in the hours after the riots occurred. On the House floor McCarthy said that…

“The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.”

Not only did Trump not denounce the mob, according to his communications director, Stephanie Grisham, he watched it repeatedly on TV while it went down. Afterwards Trump told the rioters that he loved them. And shortly after that McCarthy made the pilgrimage to Mar-a-Lago to kiss Dear Leader’s… let’s just say ring. There surely was nothing political about that, was there?

Tucker Carlson Emasculates Ted Cruz and Lies that ‘Not a Lot Happened’ on January 6th

One year ago, Donald Trump sent his glassy-eyed disciples on a mission to undermine American democracy in a violent attempt to cling to power and fulfill his authoritarian aspirations. What resulted was a deadly assault on Congress that put the lives its members – and even Trump’s vice-president – at dire risk of grave injury or worse.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

Trump’s January 6th insurrection will be remembered as among the darkest days of American history. Except, of course, by Trump and his treasonous cohorts. In fact, Trump has already responded to the observance of the anniversary of his coup attempt with exactly the sort of grotesquery for which he is so well known.

Meanwhile, Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) was on its own mission to keep its viewers pitifully ignorant and drenched in disinformation. On this solemn occasion, the narrative on Fox News was that there was no insurrection at all. Fox has adopted Trump’s wholly fictional framing of the horrific affair as “protest” by peaceful patriots. And the first order of business was to slap down any wayward Republicans who diverted from that doctrine.

At the forefront of this media spin cycle was Tucker Carlson, Fox’s Senior White Nationalist. Carlson was aghast at hearing Sen. Ted Cruz describe the insurrection as “a terror attack.” And he let Cruz know it when the disobedient senator submitted himself for discipline. For his part, Cruz bent over with shameless contrition:

Carlson: You call this a terror attack when by no definition was it a terror attack. That was a lie. You told that lie on purpose and I’m wondering why you did.
Cruz: The way I phrased things yesterday, it was sloppy and, frankly, it was dumb.
Carlson: I don’t buy that. Whoa whoa whoa! I don’t buy that. […] Every word – you repeated that phrase. I do not believe that you used that accidentally. I just don’t! […]
Cruz: Tucker, I agree with you. It was a mistake to say that yesterday.
Carlson: I guess I just don’t believe you. And I mean that with respect.

Respect? Carlson repeatedly called Cruz a liar to his face, and Cruz agreed with him. Which shouldn’t surprise anyone who recalls that Cruz still became a Trump suck-up after Trump insulted his wife and accused his father of assassinating John F. Kennedy. This is pretty good evidence that Fox News is not the media arm of the Republican Party. but that the Republican Party is the political arm of Fox News.

As for Carlson’s assertion that the insurrection was by “no definition” a terrorist attack, he might want to check the Justice Department’s definition of terrorism that states that…

“The FBI defines terrorism, domestic or international, as the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a Government or civilian population in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

In other words, precisely what took place on January 6, 2021. However, while that exchange looks pretty awful for both Carlson and Cruz, it wasn’t the worst of Carlson’s blather. Prior to emasculating Cruz, Carlson constructed an alternate reality about the insurrection:

“If you take three steps back as historical events go, if we are being honest now, Jan. 6 barely rates as a footnote. Really not a lot happened that day if you think about it. The presidential election was not overturned, the Capitol was not destroyed, the government was not toppled, no matter what you may have heard. Not a single elected official was injured. […] None of the so-called insurrectionists had guns.”

“Not a lot happened?” Sure, if you regard five deaths, 140 injured police officers, $30 million in damage, and the stain on the constitutional principle of democratic self-governance as “not a lot.”

Carlson’s interpretation of the banality of the insurrection is preposterous and purposefully dishonest. Just because it failed doesn’t mean that it wasn’t profoundly destructive and a threat to the future of a free nation. Would Carlson say that “not a lot happened” if a man survived a heart attack while his house was on fire, just because he lived through it and the fire was eventually extinguished? In that analogy, quite a lot happened and the victim’s life was forever changed.

Perhaps a better analogy would be to ask Carlson how he would feel if a marauding mob invaded the Fox News offices, smashed through doors and windows, assaulted police and security, and vandalized property, while chanting “Hang Rupert Murdoch.”

What’s more, Carlson’s claim that “None of the so-called insurrectionists had guns,” was another flagrant lie. PolitiFact debunked that falsehood last year when Fox’s Maria Bartiromo and Trump were disgorging it:

“Court records and news reports show that many insurrectionists were armed, and several were charged with having firearms on Capitol grounds or stashed nearby while in Washington D.C. In addition, rioters had weapons other than firearms and used them during the attack.”

Finally, Carlson deliberately mangled what President Biden said in his January 6th speech:

“Biden told the country that, in fact, symbolically January 6th was worse than the Civil War. The American Civil War. That would be the war that killed more than a million people. January 6th was worse than that because somebody held a naughty flag.”

Of course, Biden never said that. And Carlson’s noxious trivialization of the congressional invasion as merely “naughty” is typical of his irredeemably deceitful character, or lack thereof. What Biden actually said was:

“Rioters rampaging, waving for the first time inside this Capitol a Confederate flag that symbolized the cause to destroy America, to rip us apart. Even during the Civil War, that never, ever happened. But it happened here in 2021.”

Biden wasn’t saying that the insurrection was worse than the Civil War. He was merely pointing out the Confederate rebels never managed to carry their flag into the seat of the U.S. government. Carlson knows that. He just wants to further drown his dimwitted viewers in lies and to keep them artificially enraged. All the better to send them into the next insurrection that Carlson surely wants see take place.
