Trump Truthfully Tells His Cult Rally Rabble that ‘I Think They’d Like To See Me In Prison’

Pathological liar Donald Trump doesn’t tell the truth very often. He has a record for blatantly lying during his occupation of the White House that President Biden – nor any future president – can ever hope to match. So when he does manage to say something truthful he deserves to get credit for it.

Donald Trump, Prison

Trump has spent the past two years whining about his having lost the 2020 presidential election. However, his efforts to prove any of his claims that the election was “rigged and stolen” from him have failed in more than sixty court challenges for lack of even a shred of evidence. It is that campaign to undermine democracy that has come to be known as the “Big Lie.” Even his own Attorney General, Bill Barr, said it was “bullshit.”

RELATED: AG Bill Barr on Trump’s Big Lie: We Realized From the Beginning it Was Just Bull****

At his latest travelling salvation show, Trump rattled off his tedious litany of complaints and perceived victimhood. He repeated his well worn lines about the media, the election he lost, and always his seething hatred for all things democratic and his nemesis who bests him on all counts, President Biden. But on one matter Trump actually got something right at the end of a lie-riddled rant when he sobbed that…

“They’re trying to wipe out free speech, crush religious liberty, confiscate your guns, indoctrinate your children, criminalize dissent, and even put their political opponents in prison. I think they’d like to see me in prison. Can you imagine? I think they’d like… You know why? You know why? Because they’re sick. They’re sick people.”

Can you imagine? Can you imagine that law abiding Americans want politicians who commit crimes to be punished? Is it within your ability to grasp that people who incite violence in the process of staging a coup should be held accountable? Do you really believe that stealing highly sensitive national security materials, hoarding them in your hotel/home, and lying to the FBI about it should be prosecuted? Would you want authorities to investigate someone who committed bank and tax fraud for millions of dollars?

For the record, most Americans would answer all of those questions in the affirmative. Recent polling shows that nearly six in ten voters think that Trump should face charges over the January 6th insurrection. Even a Fox News poll shows that voters think Trump’s theft of classified documents was wrong by a whopping 39 point margin (65% to 26%).

As usual, just about everything else in Trump’s rally harangue is flagrantly false. It is Trump and his Republican comrades who have threatened free speech, literally proposing to ban books and censor media. They have fouled the notion of religious liberty by forcing their beliefs on everyone else. Their love affair with guns puts Americans at risk every day. And their idea of education is a true form of indoctrination that excises any historical facts that make conservatives uncomfortable, such as slavery and discrimination against minorities, immigrants, women, and LGBTQ.

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

Trump’s complaints about people wanting to see him in prison run in stark contrast to his own advocacy of prison for his political opponents. He routinely accuses others of crimes without any facts to support his charges. His rallies regularly feature chants of “Lock [him/her] up,” for unidentified crimes and without trial or conviction. And just to demonstrate his raging hypocrisy, that chant was even taken up within minutes of his prison whining at Saturday’s rally. You really can’t make this up…

Tucker Carlson of Fox News Secretly Lobbied for Trump to Pardon Convicted Felon Roger Stone

The lines dividing Fox News from the ultra-rightist Republican Party and the abominable Cult of Donald Trump were erased long ago. There is no discernible distinction whatsoever between Trump’s GOP and Rupert Murdoch’s propaganda network. They work hand in hand to undermine democracy and advance the authoritarian aspirations and agenda of their Dear Leader Trump.

Donald Trump, Roger Stone

The latest revelation affirming this nefarious coupling of wingnut media and wretched politicians comes in a passage from the new book by New York Times reporter, Maggie Haberman, “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America.” The book exposes numerous depravities from the Trump presidency, including that Trump “resisted denouncing White supremacists,” “made light of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s declining health, “ and his Chief of Staff John Kelly describing Trump as a “fascist.”

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Dumps on His Favorite New York Times Reporter for Telling the Truth About Him

Haberman recounts Trump’s efforts to absolve his criminal co-conspirators of any responsibility for their crimes. Specifically, she reports that Tucker Carlson of Fox News personally lobbied the White House to pardon convicted felon Roger Stone. According to Rolling Stone

“During Trump’s fourth year in office, Carlson also held a secret meeting at the White House with Jared Kushner as part of a pressure campaign aimed at forcing Trump to pardon Roger Stone, according to the upcoming book Confidence Man.”

Haberman wrote that…

“If Trump failed to deliver, Carlson made clear, he would press the issue publicly. Kushner was noncommittal, and a few days later Carlson launched what became a monthslong campaign on his friend’s behalf.”

So Carlson was going far beyond merely urging the Trump administration to pardon Stone. He was actually extorting them with the threat of using his program to attack them if they didn’t comply with his demand. That says something about the weakness of Trump’s White House, that it could be manipulated so easily, and that squeaky cable pundits weren’t afraid to push them around.

Not that Trump needed much pushing. He was already leaning toward pardoning his accomplice, Stone, who he thought was being treated too harshly by his own Justice Department. And that was after then-Attorney General Bill Barr had overruled and lessened the prosecutors’ penalty recommendation.

Stone had been found guilty of witness tampering and lying to Congress, crimes that carry prison terms of up to nine years. Barr got that reduced to 40 months. But Trump later pardoned Stone, along with his confederates Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, and Steve Bannon.

RELATED: The REAL Criminal: Roger Stone Was Prosecuted for Covering Up for Trump

Tusker Carlson injecting himself into White House political and criminal matters is blatantly inappropriate. No reputable journalist would ever consider it. So it’s a good thing that Fox News doesn’t consider Carlson to be either reputable or a journalist. In fact, Fox News lawyers argued in court – successfully – that he couldn’t be found to be guilty of defamation because no reasonable person would believe anything he says. Sadly, there are way too many unreasonable persons who watch Fox News every day.

Idiots at Fox News Downplay Hurricane Damage ‘In Our Country’ vs Puerto Rico

As Hurricane Ian rumbles over Florida and much of the south eastern seaboard, leaving human and material destruction in its wake, the coverage of this unnatural product of climate change by Fox News proves to be just another opportunity to propagate disinformation and amplify ignorance.

Hurricane Shooter

On Thursday morning, host Martha MacCallum responded to comments by her colleague Bill Hemmer regarding the the state of the power grid in Florida following the hurricane’s landfall. Hemmer noted that 200,000 people were reported to have lost power, and that that number was likely go up in the next few hours. MacCallum agreed and added that…

“You know you feel terrible for people in Puerto Rico who were just hit, in Cuba who were just hit. Thank God we have better infrastructure in our country. We’ve put a lot of investment into making sure that we’re ready for these things. But it’s an act of nature and you never know exactly what to expect.”

Who wants to tell MacCallum that Puerto Rico is “in our country”? This is a “mistake” that is often made on Fox News, where they seem loathe to concede that the mostly Latino citizens of Puerto Rico are, in fact, Americans.

However, as bad as that was, it wasn’t the only ignorant blunder made by both Hemmer and MacCallum. Their praise for authentic, unadulterated, American infrastructure neglected to notice that there are actually more than two million Floridians without power. So the failures of the energy facilities on the mainland were no less severe than those on the tiny and distant island. Even though they have the advantage of being connected to the broader national power grid.

This might be a good time for a reminder that the vast majority of Republicans in Congress voted against the passage of President Biden’s Infrastructure Bill.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Whines Impotently About Passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

What’s more, Donald Trump has been a prolific promoter of purposeful lies with regard to past natural disasters. Following his infamous paper towel throwing affair in Puerto Rico, Trump sought to make the tragedies of Hurricane Maria disappear. He tweeted that…

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000. This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible.”

Actually, Democrats had nothing to do with the casualty estimates. And Trump doesn’t need anyone’s help to make him look bad. The 3,000 fatalities were verified by both non-partisan government agencies and independent researchers at George Washington University. They were also affirmed by the Republican governor of Puerto Rico.

The fact that Fox News is intent on callously discounting the hardship and grief suffered by victims of Hurricane Ian shouldn’t surprise anyone. They are the same network that stood behind Trump when he asked whether we could nuke a hurricane. And then there was the time that he described North Carolina’s Hurricane Florence in 2018 as “a tough hurricane. One of the wettest we’ve ever seen from the standpoint of water.” Both Florence and Ian were classified as Category 4. But maybe Trump declassified Florence with his mind, saving untold lives.

R U KIDDING? Trump Offers to ‘Head Up Group’ to Negotiate an End to Russia’s War on Ukraine

One of Donald Trump’s favorite reality defying rhetorical maneuvers is to insist that some recent circumstance would never have happened if he were still president. He’s used it to claim that there would have been no inflation, that the U.S. would have left Afghanistan peacefully, that COVID would have disappeared, and essentially that his perpetual occupation of the White House would mean eternal paradise on earth. He’d probably say that there would have been no hurricane if he were still king.

Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin

Perhaps more often than any other of these preposterous claims was Trump’s insistence that Russia would not have invaded Ukraine if he were president. Trump employs this sort of baseless speculation because it is impossible to disprove an imaginary past. However, it is easy to conclude from past behavior that if Trump were in office when Russia chose to attack Ukraine that he would have been on Russia’s side. And he surely would not have provided assistance to Ukraine, whose president he extorted in an attempt to get him to dig up dirt on then-candidate Joe Biden. Which is why he got impeached the first time.

RELATED: Trump Reveals He Talked to Putin About Invading Ukraine, But Stiffed Them on Military Aid Anyway

On Wednesday morning Trump posted a comment on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, that once again asserted his fabrications as fact. And he went further to propose himself as the universal solver of any and every problem that humans face…

“U.S. ‘Leadership’ should remain ‘cool, calm, and dry’ on the SABOTAGE of the Nord Stream Pipelines. This is a big event that should not entail a big solution, at least not yet. The Russia/Ukraine catastrophe should NEVER have happened, and would definitely not have happened if I were President. Do not make matters worse with the pipeline blowup. Be strategic, be smart (brilliant!), get a negotiated deal done NOW. Both sides need and want it. The entire World is at stake. I will head up group???”

First of all, Trump’s perception of himself as “cool, calm, and dry” is downright hysterical. He is without peer as America’s most mentally unbalanced politician ever. Secondly, Trump’s concern about the Nord Stream pipeline explosion is difficult to take seriously. He has already blamed it on the Biden administration without any proof whatsoever. That, of course, is typical of his “Blame America First” tendencies. The last thing he would ever do is criticize his hero and mentor, Vladimir Putin.

However, the peak of Trump’s lunacy is revealed in his deranged proposal that he should “head the group” dispatched to negotiate an end to the Russian aggression against Ukraine. That would be like sending Himmler to represent the Allies in peace talks with Hitler. We know whose side Trump is on. He has already called for appeasement of Russia, including his solution to let Putin annex parts of Eastern Ukraine.

RELATED: Trump’s ‘Solution’ to the War in Ukraine is to Appease Russia and Quash Any Criticism of Putin

Trump’s latest comment is another suggestion that Ukraine “get a negotiated deal done NOW.” But why should Ukraine agree to any Russian demand for territory that doesn’t belong to them? Ukraine is winning this war and can prevail with the support of Western allies.

Trump, on the other hand, is is waving the white flag of surrender. And that’s the sort of cowardly, traitorous “leadership” that he has provided in the past and would provide in the future if he were ever to regain power in the U.S. He’s telling us so explicitly. We must not allow it to happen.

Tucker Carlson Dumps All Over the GOP ‘Commitment to America’ – ‘There’s Nothing Real In It’

Just like Leap Year, Tucker Carlson of Fox News says something that is marginally coherent once every four years or so. Although when he does it is usually spiked with some ulterior political motive or the result of an accidental slip into the realm of reality. More often than not Carlson is steadfastly fixated on his white supremacist, pro-authoritarian points of view.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

On Monday Carlson diverged from his customary knee-jerk, Trump-fluffing screed to shower some pretty harsh criticism on the Republican Party he ordinarily props up. The tongue lashing delivered by Tuckums concerned the recently released “Commitment to America” – the GOP House minority leader Kevin McCarthy’s hastily cobbled together policy statement that he intended to boost the Republican’s waning prospects for the midterm election. Releasing this pitifully shallow rehash of the 1994 Newt Gingrich “Contract with America” just six weeks before the election was a clear act of desperation on McCarthy’s part.

RELATED: REALLY? Tucker Carlson Accuses Kevin McCarthy of Being ‘a Puppet of the Democratic Party’

McCarthy’s “commitment” included such vague banalities as creating “an economy that’s strong,” “a nation that’s safe,” “a future that’s built on freedom” and “a government that’s accountable.” Those goals, however, are diametrically opposed to what Republicans have done in practice. Particularly their record on producing weak economies and foregoing accountability for their lawless leaders (e.g. Donald Trump). Carlson appears to agree. He raged at Republicans saying that…

“House Republicans just spelled out what they’re running on. It’s a document called the ‘Commitment to America.’ It’s fine. Probably not much in it you disagree with. Have you heard of it? No. You probably haven’t. You probably haven’t read it. Nobody really cares. Why? Because there’s nothing real in it.

“There’s not a single word in that document about the attacks on the American family that you see every day. That’s at the center of most people’s concerns. How are my kids? Will they have a life that resembles mine? That was called the American Dream. Does it still exist? Will they be able to afford to live the way they grew up? Will they have the opportunities that we had? No! People are upset about that. Why wouldn’t they be? But nobody says it.”

So Carlson is worried about whether the GOP plan will permit his children to enjoy the elitist life of leisure that he was born into. He can’t grasp that his questions make no sense to a low-income family that isn’t especially anxious for their kids to have a life that resembles theirs.

The crux of Carlson’s opposition to McCarthy’s folly is that it doesn’t restore the kind of America that Carlson hankers for. It’s an America that looks backwards to the one his parents lived in. Which is one where women and minorities were still second-class citizens who weren’t threatening the rightful superiority of his racial and social stratum. And he’s likewise worried that McCarthy’s plan doesn’t openly embrace the autocratic principles of his heroes, such as Vladimir Putin and Viktor Orbán.

SEE: Tucker Carlson of Fox News Rattles Off His Ridiculous Reasons for Why You Shouldn’t Hate Putin and Fox News Fascinista, Tucker Carlson, Cozies Up to Hungary’s Authoritarian PM Orbán

Another reason that Carlson might be averse to the McCarthy Doctrine is that he has an agenda that is more focused on political vengeance. He would rather see the GOP go after President Biden and the Democrats than to bother with the mechanics of governing. Which would put him in alignment with GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz who has explicitly adopted the revenge platform. “If we don’t engage in impeachment inquiries,” Gaetz rants, “our voters will feel betrayed “ So Gaetz concludes that “it should be investigations first, policy … as a far, far diminished priority.”

That also happens to be the overtly revenge-centered agenda of Donald Trump. At least when he isn’t whining about having lost the 2020 presidential election. The Trump Cult is laser focused on the issues that matter most to the cult devotees: Hunter Biden, COVID mandates, immigrants, Hillary Clinton’s emails, and Joe Biden’s opposition to right-wing fascists. And if that’s their closing argument for the 2022 midterms, election day can’t come soon enough for Democrats.

GOP Senator on Fox News Backs Assault Against 72 Year Old Volunteer Abortion Clinic Escort

The Republican Party of Donald Trump has spent months (years, actually) normalizing acts of violence in pursuit of their extremist, authoritarian quest for power. From the very beginning of Trump’s political adventurism he explicitly advocated violence. He even urged his supporters to “knock the crap out of” protesters at his rallies and promised to pay their legal fees.

Fox News, Terrorism

On Sunday morning the Fox News Senior Trump-fluffer, Maria Bartiromo, invited Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah to discuss the GOP’s plans should they win a majority in the 2022 midterm election. Bartiromo wanted to know whether they would conduct an inquisition of the Justice Department and the FBI on behalf of Trump following the search of his Mar-a-Lago bunker where he had illegally hoarded highly sensitive national security materials.

RELATED: Trump Returns to the Scene of the Crime at Mar-a-Lago – and Freaks Out About the FBI’s Shoes

Lee immediately steered the conversation to what he regarded as “overreach” on the part of law enforcement. This despite their having found hundreds of classified documents that Trump repeatedly lied about having. However, Lee’s examples of this alleged overreach wound up serving as support for the perpetrator of a vicious assault on a senior citizen…

Lee: In the last few days we’ve seen some pretty glaring examples of what appear to be instances of overreach […] You’ve got a Catholic father of seven who formed a group designed to encourage young men to be faithful to their commitments, who was arrested in front of his seven children.
Bartiromo: Crap!

Lee repeated that he regards this as an “instance of overreach” that Republicans will be looking into. Bartiromo added that another line of inquiry should include the Justice Department and the FBI’s alleged “deep hatred for Donald Trump and the way they treat the former president.” In the view of Lee and Bartiromo, treating a suspect of serious federal crimes, including espionage, like a suspect is a akin to deep hatred.

What Lee failed to mention was that the Catholic father who was arrested was charged with assaulting a 72 year old volunteer reproductive healthcare clinic who was escorting patients through a gauntlet of anti-choice activists. According to the local ABC news affiliate

“A Pennsylvania man has been charged for allegedly assaulting an elderly Planned Parenthood volunteer. […] According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, Mark Houck is alleged to have twice assaulted a 72-year-old man because he was a volunteer reproductive health care clinic escort.

“The charges stem from two separate incidents […] In the first incident, the man was attempting to escort two patients exiting the clinic when Houck forcefully shoved him to the ground. In the second incident, Houck allegedly confronted the man and shoved him to the ground in front of the Planned Parenthood center, causing injuries that required medical attention.”

That is the sort of behavior that Sen. Lee is defending. And Bartiromo is fully on board with it. The assailant, according his page on a Catholic speakers website, “is the Co-Founder/President of The King’s Men,” a non-profit organization “seeking to unite and build up men as true leaders […] with the goal of eliminating pornography.” The page also says Houck is a “chastity educator!”

Soon Houck may be able to add convicted felon to his resume. And Fox News can continue its mission to promote violence against their political opponents, up to and including insurrection. It’s a strategy that has become even more pronounced as Trump sinks ever deeper into legal peril. It’s a path that they appear to hope leads to civil war.

Fox News ‘Doctor’ Attacks Stacy Abrams for Fetal Heartbeat Comment that He Later Admits is True

Fox News has never been a particularly good source for medical information. To the contrary, with respect to COVID-19 they have a long record of disseminating crackpot conspiracy theories and fake cures that resulted in the deaths of untold thousands of people. They were literally killing off their own viewers.

Fox News, Covid

Throughout the pandemic, Fox News was instrumental in spreading disinformation. When they weren’t denying that there was any serious public health issue at all, they were promoting quack cures like hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. And among the most frequent distributors of deadly misinformation was their “Medical A-Team” “doctor,” Marc Siegel, who insisted that COVID was no more dangerous than the common flu.

RELATED: SURPRISE! Those Who Trust Fox News, Newsmax, and OAN Believe the Most COVID Misinformation

On Friday Fox News brought in Siegel again to dispense his unique brand of bullpucky. The segment was about comments made by Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate, Stacy Abrams, on abortion and one argument in particular that anti-choice activists cling to. Abrams was addressing claims that a fetal heartbeat can heard in ultrasound exams. Host Dana Perino played a clip of Abrams saying that…

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

That’s a factual statement that credible medical professionals will attest to. The ultrasound machine actually inserts sounds when it encounters certain fetal activity. It is a product of the machine itself, rather than amplification of any existing sound. But that isn’t how Siegel portrayed it in this interview.

Responding to Perino’s question, “Can you hear a heartbeat at six weeks in a pregnancy?” Siegel hedged at first, calling Abrams’ comments “outrageous,” followed by a short historical outline of how ultrasound was invented and it’s contribution to medicine. He seemed to be implying that Abrams was criticizing the existence of the machine, which is absurd. He eventually circled back to the question and his reply actually affirmed what Abrams had said (video below):

“I gotta tell you that you can see at six weeks that a fetus is forming. There’s no heart there, there’s no valves, but you are seeing a fluttering, a flickering of electrical activity. That’s the beginning of a heart. So you can debate all day when an actual heart occurs, but that is the beginning of flickering, of fluttering of life there where the heart is gonna be.”

So Siegel is acknowledging that there is no heart present at six weeks, and thus no heartbeat. He tries to contort his response into the Fox News narrative by talking about some future fetal development that hasn’t yet occurred. But the fact remains that Abrams was right and Siegel is reluctantly, but expressly, concurring with her.

That’s the sort of disreputable blather that Siegel has made a career on on Fox News. He was, after all, the guy Fox News turned to to interview Donald Trump about his infamous cognition exam where he claims to have correctly identified an elephant and recalled the five words “person, woman, man, camera, TV”

Siegel never bothered to interject that Trump’s assessment of that test was preposterous. He stood there and nodded blankly as Trump proclaimed that the test revealed his extraordinary mental prowess. It’s a moment in the media that exposed both Siegel and Trump as mentally deficient and brazenly dishonest.

HUH? Trump Told Hannity He Didn’t Pack the Mar-a-Lago Docs that He Declassified With His Mind

It’s just another morning in Trumplandia and its Dear Leader, Donald Trump, is engaged in a fever swamp freak out over at his floundering social media scam, Truth Social. So far he has posted 36 mouth-frothing comments that only affirm how petrified he is by the rash of bad news he’s so pitifully whining about.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump Sean Hannity

This “truthing” tantrum was triggered by the announcement on Wednesday that New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a lawsuit against Trump and his crime family for fraud. James is seeking to strip Trump of his New York businesses and levy a penalty of $250 million dollars. And the case is so strong that even Trump’s surrogates are folding.

RELATED: Trump’s Spokes-Shill Admits that He’s Guilty of the Fraud Charges By New York AG Letitia James

In his defense, Trump scurried off to Fox News where their Senior Trump-Fluffer, Sean Hannity, was ready to offer solace and pre-chewed excuses that Trump could slip into. However, these staged propaganda pieces often seem better suited to Comedy Central than any network with the word “News” in their name.

Among the hilarious punchlines delivered by Trump was his assertion that he is able to telepathically declassify highly sensitive national security documents.

“You’re the president of the United States you can declassify just by saying It’s declassified.’ Even by thinking about it. Because you’re sending it to Mar-a-Lago, or to wherever you’re sending it, and there doesn’t have to be a process. There can be a process, but there doesn’t have to be.”

Nope. That’s not how any of this works. This isn’t “Bewitched.” There is definitely a process and it must be observed, even by a president. Otherwise, how would anyone else in government know whether a document was classified or not? But Trump was just getting started. He went on to say that…

“I declassified everything. Now I declassified things that we were having a lot of problems with NARA [National Archives and Records Administration]. You know, NARA is a radical left group of people running that thing, and when you send documents over there, I would say that there’s a very good chance that a lot of those documents will never be seen again. There’s also a lot of speculation because of what they did, the severity of the FBI coming and raiding Mar-a-Lago. Were they looking for the Hillary emails that were deleted, but they are around someplace.”

If Trump’s claim that he declassified “everything,” is true, then anyone can now request it. Me, Rachel Maddow, Stephen Colbert, or even one of Vladimir Putin’s American assets (i.e. Tucker Carlson). What’s more, Trump’s knee-jerk habit of declaring any institution that isn’t subservient to his will a “radical left group,” is getting tiresome. He has already plastered that label on everything from the FBI to the Pentagon. And his preposterous charge that the FBI was looking for Hillary Clinton’s emails is downright hysterical.

PREVIOUSLY: WTF? Now Trump Says the FBI Was Looking for Hillary Clinton’s Emails at Mar-a-Lago

And Trump still had more to say. He told Hannity that he can’t be prosecuted under the “Presidential Records Act.” Which no one is trying to do. However, the Act does say that “Presidential records automatically transfer into the legal custody of the Archivist as soon as the President leaves office.” So bringing it up only further incriminates him. He also says the Secret Service was “watching over” the documents at Mar-a-Lago. Which is, of course, untrue. The Secret Service is detailed to former presidents, not things.

Finally, with regard to what was packed and moved from the White House to Mar-a-Lago, Trump pleaded ignorance. Which in his case is pretty easy to believe. However, he is contradicting his own claims to having declassified everything. He told Hannity that he didn’t pack any of the boxes that were later found at his hotel/home. That was, according to Trump, all done by the GSA [General Services Administration] or White House staff. He incoherently stammered that…

“GSA was involved. That’s Government services. They’re fantastic people. And they packed them… and not only that, they brought ’em in, along with people in the White House. I don’t know who they are, but there are a lot of people working in the White House. They packed them up but… clothing, massive amounts of pictures. You know they take so many amounts of pictures every day, and they give you copies of all this stuff. And it’s boxes and boxes of pictures.”

Trump conveniently forgot to mention the boxes and boxes of classified documents. And it’s his contention now that all of those boxes were packed by GSA and White House staff who he doesn’t know. By the way, none of those people would have clearance to handle classified documents. But more to the point, how could Trump have declassified them – with his mind or otherwise – if he didn’t know they were even there because he had nothing to do with packing them?

What was Trump’s mind declassifying? Does he even know? That’s just another one of the many mysteries that we are left to wonder about in the wake of Trump’s occupation of the White House. Hopefully one of the many criminal investigations of Trump will clear that up for him – and for us.

Trump’s Spokes-Shill Admits that He’s Guilty of the Fraud Charges By New York AG Letitia James

It’s been a long time coming, but the first formal charges against Donald Trump by New York Attorney General Letitia James have been filed. They are wide ranging and carry serious penalties, including a permanent ban on Trump and his children serving on any corporate board, being prohibited for five years from running any corporation or similar business in New York or applying for business loans, and $250 million in restitution.

Donald Trump, Prison

The action taken by James was the result of a “comprehensive, three-year investigation” that involved “interviews with more than 65 witnesses and review of millions of documents.” In the press conference announcing the lawsuit, James charged Trump with “violating the law as part of his efforts to generate profits for himself, his family and his company.”

The lawsuit alleged that Trump and his co-defendants – Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump – “falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and to cheat the system, thereby cheating all of us.” Furthermore, James noted that she would be forwarding her findings to the Department of Justice and the IRS, where criminal charges could be considered. Then she elaborated saying that…

“Mr. Trump and the Trump Organization repeatedly and persistently manipulated the value of assets to induce banks to lend money to the Trump Organization on more favorable terms than would otherwise have been available to the company to pay lower taxes, to satisfy continuing loan agreements, and to induce insurance companies to provide insurance coverage for higher limits and for lower premiums.”

Within minutes of the announcement, Trump’s spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, posted a comment on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, that she apparently thought was a defense of her boss. It wasn’t…

“These people are DERANGED! [Former] President Trump did not inflate his assets. He UNDERVALUED them. They have turned New York City into a Third World country. They release violent criminals on the streets, and use their energy to go after a law-abiding, successful businessman, who is their number one political opponent. Sick!

First of all, Harrington is lying about Trump not inflating his assets. Not only does James cite abundant evidence that he did, he has even bragged about doing it saying in his book “The Art of the Deal” that “a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration. In other words, an “innocent” form of lying.

However, Harrington completely missed the part of James’ statement where she also said that Trump undervalued his assets in order to “to pay lower taxes.” So Harrington’s post is explicitly affirming that Trump is guilty of that charge in the AG’s lawsuit.

Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, didn’t do much good for her client either when she provided a response to the lawsuit saying that…

“Today’s filing is neither focused on the facts nor the law — rather, it is solely focused on advancing the Attorney General’s political agenda.[…] and we look forward to defending our client against each and every one of the Attorney General’s meritless claims.”

If Trump is looking forward so much to defending himself against these claims, why did he take the Fifth Amendment more than 400 times when he was deposed by James a few weeks ago? Which is something that he previously said only guilty people and mobsters do? And why did he try to evade the depositions entirely unless he was granted immunity?

For his part, Trump also banged out a rapid reply to James in a Truth Social rant. He whined that this is “Another Witch Hunt by a racist Attorney General, Letitia James,” and that he “never thought this case would be brought – until I saw her really bad poll numbers.”

This isn’t the first time that Trump called James, who is Black, a racist. Nor is it the first time he’s shown his obsession with polls, even when they have nothing to do with the subject at hand. For the record, last month a Sienna College Research Institute poll had James beating her GOP opponent by 14 points.

Trump’s latest meltdown is typical of his desperate emotional state. Whenever he is confronted by bad news, he complains of his victimhood. Everything is a “witch hunt” and everyone is out to get him. And this is the model of a strongman that has so enraptured the Trump Cult. Just think how these snowflakes will react when criminal charges are filed.

WHUT? On Fox News RNC Chair Cites GOP Scare Tactics as Proof that Democrats are Scaring People

With the 2022 midterm election now less than two months away, the Republican Party is piling on the lies, pseudo-scandals, personal insults, and fear mongering. The projections for control of the House and Senate have been trending toward the Democrats ever since the Supreme Court’s Dobb’s decision that effectively reversed Roe vs Wade. Plus, Democrats have had numerous legislative achievements in the past few months.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

Consequently, the GOP, and their Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) have been reprising their customary campaign of contrivances such as caravans of immigrants, rampant crime, and economic apocalypse. It’s their predictable, knee jerk response whenever an election is nearing and their prospects are dimming.

On Fox News Monday morning, host Dana Perino interviewed the chair of the Republican National Committee, Ronna McDaniel. Perino led into her question with a video clip of former President Bill Clinton commenting accurately on how Republicans use fear to motivate their base. Which led to a rather bizarre exchange between Perino and McDaniel…

Clinton (video): The Republicans always close well. Why? Because they find some new way to scare the living daylights out of swing voters about something. That’s what they did in 2021 when they made critical race theory sound worse than smallpox.
Perino: The Democrats have been trying to scare people as well.
McDaniel: News flash, Bill. Your party’s doing that just fine. We don’t need to help you with that as well. You’re scaring voters everywhere. With open borders. I mean, just last month 2,000 pounds of fentanyl came across our border. That could kill 500,000,000 people. We’re coming into Halloween. Every mom in the country right now is worried. What if this gets into my kid’s Halloween basket? The rainbow fentanyl.

The first notable observation in that segment is that neither Perino nor McDaniel disputed what Clinton said. That might be because it’s indisputably true. However they did attempt to “whatabout” his remarks in a peculiar way. The examples that McDaniel gave of Democratic fear mongering were actually the long established scare tactics of the Republican Party. It isn’t Democrats who use open borders and drug smuggling to frighten voters. That’s the GOP. So McDaniel was just inadvertently affirming Clinton’s political analysis. In fact, she was engaging in it.

What’s more, while missing her target by a mile, McDaniel also managed to make a mess of whatever she was trying say. First of all, she complained that thousands of pounds of fentanyl were confiscated at the border last month. That is actually evidence of how well the Biden administration is policing the border and preventing illegal drug smuggling. Secondly, McDaniel claimed that the fentanyl seized could have killed 500,000,000 million people. Which is about 200,000,000 more people than there are in the U.S.

Perhaps the most preposterous of her comments was the utterly baseless suggestion that “Every mom in the country right now is worried” that their kids will be getting fentanyl treats for Halloween. Does she have any proof that even a handful of moms are worried about that, much less all of them? And what makes her think that drug dealers are plotting to give their products away for free in order to commit the mass poisoning of America’s children?

If this is the high point of the Republican’s political gamesmanship, Democrats have even less to worry about come November than previously thought. However, given the intellectual capacity of the average GOP voter, there is still a risk that they could turn out and make some gains. So Democrats can’t relax or take anything for granted. Democracy itself is riding on these midterms. And Republicans are still pouring on the craziness that exemplifies their party today…

And let’s not forget the Fear Monger in Chief for the Republican Party, Donald Trump…
