Trump Live Blogged Biden’s State of the Union – And it Was Just as Schizoid as You’d Expect

The State of the Union address that President Biden delivered on Tuesday night was remarkable in several respects. Most importantly because it affirmed that Biden is a vigorous advocate for the principles that most Americans hold dear. From the economy and fair taxation, to climate change, to reproductive rights, to foreign policy, to Social Security, and more, the President was eloquent, effective, and passionately patriotic.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

Republicans in the audience, however, were a different story. They behaved like incontinent toddlers howling in frustration, unable to comport themselves courteously, or even coherently. Characters like Marjorie Taylor Greene shouted rudely with the contemptuousness that has made them political pariahs.

Never one to be left out of any media frenzy, Donald Trump shoved his way into this event by live-blogging the speech on his pitifully failing social media site, Truth Social. But his petulant and self-serving outbursts only remind people of just how deranged and consumed with rage he is. His commentary was nothing more than a threaded temper tantrum. He began by dragging down America and, of course, lying.

“We are truly a Nation In Decline, and for that reason I want Joe Biden to do well tonight!”

Yeah, sure he does. Let’s see how that worked out.

“Too much use of the word ‘folks!'”

This coming from the guy who repeats himself like a manic Tourette’s sufferer (i.e. fake news, witch hunt, MAGA, and the unrelenting whine of Russia, Russia, Russia).

“He seems to be very angry, shouting into the mic, when he’s trying to come across as conciliatory. Perhaps somebody should walk up to the dais, tap him on the shoulder, and say, ‘Be cool!'”

What speech was Trump watching? Nevertheless, It’s good advice from someone who knows what being persistently angry is all about.

“On Unemployment, far fewer people are working now—a false figure, because the workforce is smaller, at 3.4%, is virtually meaningless!”

WRONG! There are millions more Americans working today than when Biden took office. The labor force participation rate declined during Trump’s term, and recovered during Biden’s.

“We wouldn’t have had the War with Russia and Ukraine if I were President. I could also end it in 24 hours—which is what should happen!”

Trump has previously claimed that he has magic words that would end the war, but he refuses to tell anyone.

“Just showed Swalwell, a man who spent a lot of time in Spy Fang Fang’s ‘honey net,’ and wasn’t removed from our most important Committee. Only in America!”

Trump is disseminating this slanderous lie because he’s afraid of Rep. Swalwell, and also because he’s a big baby.

“He’s absolutely screaming, ‘Infrastructure, Infrastructure,’ then he shouldn’t be wasting all of our money on China-produced windmills and the Green New Deal!”

Biden’s infrastructure bill got bipartisan support, and even the Republicans who voted against it have tried to take credit for it. Also, majorities support the “Green New Deal.”

“Just showed Racist Maxine Waters with a big smile on her face, but this is a woman that truly hates America!”

Every Black person is a racist in Trump’s eyes. He says the same thing about Leticia James, the Attorney General of New York.

“If I ever made a Speech like this, they’d run me out of Washington, D.C. But there’s time left, maybe he can save it.”

Who wants to remind Trump that the American people did run him out of Washington?

“Pocahontas is really going wild tonight—She almost has to be constrained, the only thing that will do it is the straight jacket!”

Trump is referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who committed the sin of applauding. Did Trump see his bestie Marjorie Taylor Greene?

“He’s lying so much about Social Security, Medicare, and so many other things!”

For the record, GOP Sen. Rick Scott actually put his plan to “sunset” Social Security and other programs into writing. And he just doubled down on it on Twitter. Meanwhile, Biden got Republicans to join Democrats in a standing ovation for his comment that “We all apparently agree, Social Security and Medicare is off the books now, right?”

In addition to Trump’s live blogging, he finished his evening rant by posting a video of what he called “the real State of the Union.” However, it was just more of his dystopian, “American Carnage” rhetoric about how awful the country is. For instance…

“Over the past two years under Biden millions and millions of illegal aliens from 160 different countries have stormed across our Southern border […] Savage killers, rapists, and violent criminals are being released from jail to continue their crime. […] Real wages are down 20 months in a row. Gas prices have soared and are now going up much higher than even before (both false). […] Joe Biden’s weaponized Justice Department — and I’m a victim of it — is persecuting his political opponents. […] They’re trying to indoctrinate and mutilate our children. […] He’s leading us to the brink of World War III.”

That compendium of pessimism and horror is typical of the GOP’s current public positions. It was affirmed in Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ response to the State of the Union, wherein she contrasted Biden’s optimism with the nightmarish future envisioned by Republicans. Although she did mange to squeeze out one true statement…

“The dividing line in America is no longer between right or left. The choice is between normal or crazy.”

Exactly! Unfortunately, she doesn’t understand how most people will interpret that. It’s also sad that the craziness on the right is already leading to violent incidents by Trump cultists. And Trump is actually egging them on.

Fox News Says Biden is ‘Compromised’ Because He Revoked Trump’s Non-Existent Ban on TikTok

In a time of political turmoil, there is one thing that everyone can rely on with the utmost certainty. Fox News is going to spend the next couple of years feverishly fabricating defamatory fiction about President Biden. Whether or not he runs for reelection in 2024, the Fox News Bullshit Factory will be running on full steam to malign Biden and undermine democracy.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

On Monday morning, Fox News contributor and former GOP congressman, Sean Duffy (whose wife, Rachel Campos-Duffy, is a Fox News host), was the token male on Fox’s “Outnumbered.” The subject for one segment was what to do about the nefarious Chinese social media app, TikTok.

Duffy began his fairy tale spinning with a wholly unsupported assertion that it wasn’t TikTok, but members of Congress with access to classified information who are a “security risk.” His reasoning was that they are using two phones, one of which is personal and is disseminating info to China. Duffy doesn’t provide any evidence of this, but as a former congressman, he might just be talking about his own behavior when he served. And Fox and the GOP are mighty perturbed about China these days.

RELATED: Pathological Liar Trump Denies Pentagon Reports of Chinese Balloons Over U.S. During His Term

Following that, Duffy segues to an accusation that President Biden must be “compromised” because he “got rid of the Trump ban on TikTok.” “I’m a Joe Biden is compromised guy,” Duffy bragged, “otherwise he wouldn’t have done it.”

There is, however, a small problem with Duffy’s accusation. While Donald Trump did issue an executive order calling for TikTok to be banned if its Chinese owner, ByteDance, didn’t sell it, the order was never implemented, and was struck down by a federal court. What Biden did was to revoke Trump’s invalid and illegal executive order, and issue another in its place that complied with the law. Biden’s order specified that a security risk would be considered when apps were owned or controlled by foreign adversaries, or if the apps collected sensitive personal data.

Duffy went on to contradict himself and his criticism of Biden by noting the risks of banning TikTok from the Apple and Google app stores. He correctly noted that if Apple ceased to offer TikTok, China might retaliate by shutting down Apple’s computer and iPhone factories in China. “If they take TikTok off their app store,” Duffy said, “China will retaliate and, all of a sudden, you may not be able to buy an iPhone or a computer.”

It’s difficult to figure out just what Duffy is complaining about. First he’s appalled that Biden might allow TikTok to continue operating in the U.S. Then he’s fearful of losing his iPhone if measures were taken to ban TikTok. So which is it? Is Biden compromised by China, or should Biden be compromising with China?

Don’t look for Duffy or Fox News to answer that question. They have never been particularly concerned about national security. Especially as it regards Trump, who was known to have used private, unsecured phones while he was president. Nor would they be covering for Trump who stole hundreds of classified documents and stored them at his hotel/home, Mar-a-Lago.

RELATED: Trump v Biden: Their Reactions to Special Counsels Reveals Who’s Innocent and Who’s Scared

Yet somehow, to Fox News, Biden replacing Trump’s unlawful TikTok ban with a legally valid review process means he’s compromised by China – where Trump had a secret bank account while in the White House. And despite these facts, we can expect many more attacks on Biden between now and the 2024 election. It’s what they do.

Pathological Liar Trump Denies Pentagon Reports of Chinese Balloons Over U.S. During His Term

In the wake of the 21st century’s most dreadful and diabolical act of international espionage – the Chinese Spy Balloon Affair – Donald Trump is displaying his famously fatuous and defiant demeanor. Always the measured stateman, Trump’s response to China’s brief and inconsequential incursion into American air space is typically distant from any rational version of reality.

Donald Trump

Trump’s first public comment on this pressing matter was a posting on his pitifully failing social media site, Truth Social, that said nothing but “SHOOT DOWN THE BALLOON!” Which was particularly asinine advice considering that he and his mouthpieces on Fox News believed that it might contain bioweapons that would spread for miles were the balloon to be shot down over the U.S.

RELATED: UH-OH: GOP Oversight Committee Chair on Fox News Fears a Weather Balloon is a Chinese Bioweapon

On Sunday Trump elaborated on his thoughts regarding the giant Chinese party favor. He posted a comment that refuted the documented reports by the Pentagon about the state of the military Spy Balloon gap. Trump babbled that…

“The Chinese Balloon situation is a disgrace, just like the Afghanistan horror show, and everything else surrounding the grossly incompetent Biden Administration. They are only good at cheating in elections, and disinformation — and now they are putting out that a Balloon was put up by China during the Trump Administration, in order to take the ‘heat’ off the slow moving Biden fools. China had too much respect for ‘TRUMP’ for this to have happened, and it NEVER did. JUST FAKE DISINFORMATION!”

First of all, wouldn’t “FAKE DISINFORMATION” be real information? Setting that aside, Trump’s tedious tantrums about President Biden and the Democrats are always describing one “disgrace” or another. In this case, Trump is adamant that nothing like this ever occurred during his tumultuous term in the White House. Unfortunately for Trump, the Pentagon disagrees. They issued a statement on Thursday that revealed that…

“It is not the first time that you had a balloon of this nature cross over the continental United States. It has happened a handful of other times over the past few years, to include before this administration.”

Not only that, Fox News reported the same thing with additional details, saying that…

“U.S. officials tell Fox it’s not the first time Chinese spy balloons have flown over the United States. About four months ago a Chinese spy balloon crashed in the Pacific near Hawaii. Others were spotted over Texas and Florida, dating back to the Trump administration, but never previously acknowledged publicly.”

Sane observers know that Biden did the right thing by taking the advice of the military professionals and waiting to shoot down the balloon until it was over the Atlantic. They had already disabled the balloon’s surveillance capabilities. And having seen the seven mile long debris field validates the decision not to shoot it down over land, where the two-bus sized payload might have caused harm to people or property.

Trump is clearly unconcerned about these facts. And he isn’t bothered that the Pentagon refuted his factless and simple-minded denial. Neither is Fox News. Despite their own reporting, they have disseminated flagrantly false propaganda about the popping of the balloon. Fox host Maria Bartiromo asked an array of questions intended to invoke irrational fears…

“Did it drop and disburse surveillance products powered by solar energy to allow unlimited surveillance? And why did it take U.S. officials so long to shoot it down? Was it a test for the CCP to see if can send something into America’s airspace undetected? And how much surveillance is China performing on America right now?”

Note that Bartiromo was worried about the downing of the balloon because of the potential that it would “drop and disburse surveillance products,” but that she thought it should have been shot down sooner. She’s saying, in effect, that she wants China to have been able to collect more information.

Fox News also hosted Trump’s Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, who claimed to have been totally unaware of any of the Chinese spy balloon incidents during the Trump years. That’s comforting, isn’t it?

Additionally, Fox interviewed GOP senator Marco Rubio, who made a bizarrely contorted argument that China benefited by Biden not shooting down the balloon, and that China benefited by Biden shooting down the balloon. So according to Rubio, China wins either way.

How would this have been different during Trump’s term? He had the same options to either shoot down the balloon or not. And presumably the same win-win benefits for China. Of course, Trump took a third path wherein he did nothing at all and concealed the whole matter from the public. That was surely a win for Trump’s pals in China.

This is the sort of nonsense that passes for expert analysis on Fox News. And then they expect their audience to accept their dishonesty and foolishness. Lucky for them, their viewers have been primed to buy bullshit like this for many years. And that same cultist indoctrination paved the road for Trump to be able to lie so brazenly and profusely and still appeal to his glassy-eyed devotees.

It’s just a matter of time before the Kool-Aid is distributed. Or worse, he gives his StormTrumpers the orders to attack the rest of us. Which, actually, he has already done.

Trump Claims to Have Magic Words that Will End Ukraine War in 24 Hours, But Won’t Tell Anyone

After several years of Donald Trump making assertions that he routinely fails to back up, most people will rationally dismiss his remarks as the raving lunacy that they are. However, that doesn’t seem to deter him from continuing to disgorge utter nonsense on a regular basis.

Donald Trump, Padded Cell

Trump has the advantage of having a devoted following of glassy-eyed cultists who will believe whatever he says, no matter how obviously preposterous. That has enabled him to make ridiculous claims to having easy solutions to every problem. They usually include unfilled promises to complete those solutions in two weeks (see his healthcare, infrastructure, and border wall plans).

RELATED: In Jesus’ Name: Messiah Trump Promises Election Fraud ‘Truth’ is Coming Out – In Two Weeks?

On Friday Trump did another of his lazy call-in interviews. This one was with the ultra-rightist Right Side Broadcasting Network. In the course of their friendly chat wherein Trump was never challenged on any of his flagrant lies, Trump disclosed that he has hidden powers to wave a wand and resolve any crisis. Even one as complex and intractable as the Russian war against Ukraine. After being asked about his prior claims to being able to negotiate an end to the war – which centered wholly on appeasing Putin – Trump rambled on saying that…

“Well, first of all it should have never started. It would have never started had I been president. There was no chance of this war starting and, frankly, I don’t think Putin wanted to do it. I think he was sort of forced in by the statements being made by Biden.” […]

“With that being said, I think it can be negotiated within 24 hours.It really has to be done from the office of the president. And you have to get both in a room, and there are things you can say to each one of them, which I won’t reveal now, which will guarantee that this war will end immediately.”

Naturally, there is no world calamity that would have occurred if only Trump were President for Life. What’s more, every catastrophe that befalls America is the fault of President Biden. Never mind that Trump had previously praised Putin as a “genius” for his threats against, and invasion of Ukraine.

More to the point, Trump revealed that he has wizardly ways to invoke some clandestine incantation that would magically produce peace in the region “within 24 hours.” He even suggested that he be dispatched to lead negotiations between Putin and Zelenskyy. However, he isn’t going to disclose the magic words he has unless he is returned to the White House.

In other words, Trump is offering a “guarantee” that he could end the horrific war crimes of his pal Putin, and stop the slaughter of thousands of innocent Ukrainian civilians, but he isn’t willing to do that for at least another two years because of his megalomaniacal lust for power. He is, in effect, holding the world hostage to his demand to be crowned King of America.

Trump thinks that that expression of callous and deadly self-interest will get him reelected. Of course, Trump’s guarantee is worth about as much as a diploma from Trump University. And Trump couldn’t be relied on to keep his word, even if he had the occult capability he claims. He couldn’t even cast a spell to get reelected in 2020, or to get his candidates elected in 2022. Although he did blame those losses on his evangelical devotees.

RELATED: It’s Time for the Media to Cover Donald Trump as the Messiah of the QAnon Cult

Trump did another call-in interview on Friday wherein he gave right-wing hack Hugh Hewitt an incoherent position on the Ukraine war in which he expresses his desire to see Ukraine and Russia fight. Although he wants to make sure that Russia wins by denying Ukraine any aid. Which pretty well sums up just how ignorant and potentially dangerous Trump is. See if this makes any sense…

Hewitt: Do you want to cut off aid to Ukraine right now, Mr. President?
Trump: I want to make it so that Ukraine and Russia have to fight, and fight for the last time. We gotta make peace. If we won’t make peace…if we just keep sending everything over…you know we’re sending over. We gotta fight for the last day, for the last two days. This thing has to stop. And it’s gotta stop now.

UH-OH: GOP Oversight Committee Chair on Fox News Fears a Weather Balloon is a Chinese Bioweapon

Among the many imminent threats to the national security of the United States, none have a greater potential for harm than the Republican Party. Particularly as it is presently transfixed by Donald Trump and his uniquely anti-American brand of ignorance, divisiveness, hostility, and egomaniacal self-exaltation.

Republican Virus

On Friday morning the latest totally manufactured pseudo-scandal roiling the Biden administration was reported by the nervous nellies of the media. It featured a hot air balloon that was spotted at a high altitude above the plains of Montana. It was quickly accused of being a Chinese aircraft sent to spy on the United States. Never mind that China conceded that it belonged to them and was simply a wayward weather balloon.

Without hesitation, Fox News sprung into action contacting Republican Rep. James Comer (R-Balloon Boy), the new chairman of the House Oversight Committee, to get his assuredly informed and unbiased appraisal of the hovering hazard. Comer, it should be noted, is the Republican Party’s lead persecutor of President Biden, with a perverse emphasis on his son, Hunter. Comer plans to turn the Committee into a dedicated political harassment panel with the help of the GOP’s Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News.

RELATED: It’s Hunter Time: GOP Leaders are Putting Fox News First By Implementing the Hannity Agenda

Comer was a guest on Fox News Friday morning to float typically bizarre conspiracy theories about the aberrant balloon. Fox’s Harris Faulkner asked Comer about the balloon, alarmed that it is “the size of three buses now, that China says was taken by wind – wind that we can’t substantiate.” Surely Comer will get to the bottom of the unsubstantiated wind controversy. In the meantime, he replied to Faulkner’s query saying…

“Well, I have concern that this is gonna be another example of the Biden administration’s weakness on a national scale. I mean, you look at what happened in Afghanistan. […] My concern is that the federal government obviously doesn’t know what’s in that balloon. Is that bioweapons in that balloon? Did that balloon take off from Wuhan.”

Exactly! This is no different than what happened in Afghanistan when a lone terrorist blew himself up, killing dozens of innocent Afghanis and thirteen American soldiers. And even though he has absolutely zero evidence of any clandestine plot, Comer speculates that the balloon 80,000 feet in the air contains deadly toxins because China is so eager to start a global war with the United States.

For the record, CNN did what Comer couldn’t be bothered to do to find out more about this looming threat. They spoke to a Pentagon official who put the situation into perspective:

“Why not shoot it down? We have to do the risk-reward here,” the official said. “So the first question is, does it pose a threat, a physical kinetic threat, to individuals in the United States in the US homeland? Our assessment is it does not. Does it pose a threat to civilian aviation? Our assessment is it does not. Does it pose a significantly enhanced threat on the intelligence side? Our best assessment right now is that it does not. So given that profile, we assess the risk of downing it, even if the probability is low in a sparsely populated area of the debris falling and hurting someone or damaging property, that it wasn’t worth it.”

Not one to sit out an opportunity to hog the spotlight of any media hysteria, Donald Trump weighed in with his customary abundance of insight and wisdom. In a posting on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, Trump bellowed…

“SHOOT DOWN THE BALLOON!”

Yep. That was the whole statement. And it makes perfect sense. Because what better solution could there be than to shoot down a balloon that he suspects contains deadly toxins, so that it falls onto innocent Americans on the ground? Or at the very least, spreads the poison throughout the region by unsubstantiated, but surely Chinese-affiliated, winds.

These military geniuses aren’t crazy at all, are they? And since the balloon flew over Canada on its way to the U.S., perhaps we should take Tucker Carlson’s advice more seriously…

SEE THIS: Tucker Carlson Wants the U.S. to Invade Canada to ‘Liberate’ it So it Doesn’t ‘Become Cuba’

America can feel confidant that their nation is being secured by people like Comer and Trump and the Republican Party. Now they don’t have to worry that China is attacking the U.S. with balloons or other party favors. They don’t have to wonder if those balloons are carrying viruses invented by the evil Dr. Fauci, or cash to payoff Hunter Biden, or the classified documents stolen by Barack Obama’s “Deep State” militia. It’s comforting to know that we can all rest easier now that these brainiacs are allegedly in charge.

Fox News is OUTRAGED Because Biden Dares to Say He is ‘Optimistic About America’s Future’

It must be getting harder and harder for Fox News to come up with new and more appalling manufactured scandals every day to malign President Biden and the Democratic Party. Particularly when Donald Trump and the Republicans are saying and doing truly awful and/or idiotic things that steal the media spotlight.

Fox News, Joe Biden

While Biden is focused squarely on improving the lives of the American people, The Trumpian GOP is stumbling over their own cloven hooves trying to polish rotten apples like House Squeaker Kevin McCarthy, QAnon quack Marjorie Taylor Green, and pathological liar George Santos. And it can’t help the right-wing ranters that Trump is still out there yammering about all the “witch hunts” he is suffering through, and how he lost the 2020 presidential election, and how much he adores his mentor, Vladimir Putin.

RELATED: AMERICA FIRST? Trump Reiterates His Enduring Trust for Putin Over American Intelligence Pros

Consequently, Fox News is anxiously scraping the bottom of the barrel for dirt to fling at Democrats. And this week they scrounged a doozy of an alleged misdeed on Biden’s part. They caught him saying out loud that “I’ve never been more optimistic about America’s future.” Oh my heavens. He must be impeached at once!

That atrocious outburst spurred Fox News to produce a story that was entirely based on Biden’s unconscionable faith in our country. It’s headline blared “Biden slammed after giving his ‘word as a Biden’ that America’s future looks great: ‘We’re screwed'” Of course the “slamming” that Fox reported was all from Republican officials and random right-wing Twitter trolls. Their “fair and balanced” coverage ranged all the way from conservative crackpot to ultra-fringe lunatic.

What’s more, this wasn’t just a one-off assault against Biden’s unbridled patriotism. A week ago Fox News did exactly the same story triggered by a similar tweet by the President.

The story that Fox News did in response to that uncalled for positivity sported a headline that read “Biden’s tweet about his optimism for America prompts immediate backlash: ‘Jesus take the wheel'” And once again, the entirety of the story was cluttered with “backlashing” from wingnut righties on Twitter whose criticisms centered mostly on infantile insults and misinformation.

For the record, Biden has good reason to be optimistic about America’s future. He has presided over two years of historic progress during difficult times. His achievements include both legislative and executive initiatives on the issues that matter most to the American people: job creation, civil and human rights, healthcare, energy and climate, international alliances, guns, COVID, and more.

That’s precisely what is enraging Fox News and the Republican right. The last thing they want is for America and Americans to prosper while a Democrat is in the White House. Hence their steadfast devotion to obstructing everything that Biden and Democrats in Congress are doing.

The GOP is countering Democratic optimism with Republican hopelessness. And they are pursuing petty and vengeful policies in their new role as the majority party in the House of Representatives. However, in the end, that’s going to hurt Republicans and it will just be more reason for Democrats to be optimistic.

AMERICA FIRST? Trump Reiterates His Enduring Trust for Putin Over American Intelligence Pros

It’s another Monday morning, and another day for Donald Trump to babble incoherently about whatever mind worm burrowed into his melon-head upon awakening in his Mar-a-Lago bunker. On this particular morning Trump awoke with memories of one of his most despicably anti-American episodes.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump Vladimir Putin

In July of 2018, Trump held a press conference following a summit with his idol and mentor, Vladimir Putin. At one point a reporter asked Trump if he believed Putin’s denials that he had engaged in election interference during the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump replied that his own national security team told that “they think it’s Russia,” but agreeing with Putin said that “I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

RELATED: Donald Trump’s Own Words at the Treason Summit with Putin Are Dripping with His Guilt

For some unexplained reason, Trump brought up that press conference in a new post on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. Trump whined

“Remember in Helsinki when a 3rd rate reporter asked me, essentially, who I trusted more, President Putin of Russia, or our ‘Intelligence’ lowlifes. My instinct at the time was that we had really bad people in the form of James Comey, McCabe (whose wife was being helped out by Crooked Hillary while Crooked was under investigation!), Brennan, Peter Strzok (whose wife is at the SEC) & his lover, Lisa Page. Now add McGonigal & other slime to the list. Who would you choose, Putin or these Misfits?”

Yes, Don, we remember. How could we forget when a president of the United States took the side of a dictatorial leader of a hostile foreign nation against our own intelligence professionals?

Trump’s posting was nothing more than another one of his tedious grievances aimed a bunch of people that he perceives as enemies. He still has no evidence that any of them acted in any way to harm him or his campaign. In fact, former FBI director James Comey may have been the single person most to blame for Trump winning the election due to his irresponsible release of derogatory and false allegations against Hillary Clinton. And [Charles] McGonigal was an associate of Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman and convicted felon who Trump pardoned.

Without any obvious trigger for this outburst, it is likely that Trump is just lashing out at the FBI because he’s scared witless about the investigations that are currently in progress. He is subject to probes related to his criminal actions prior to, during, and after the January 6th insurrection. He’s also being invested for his theft and hoarding of classified documents. And then there is the probe looking into his election interference and obstruction of justice, related to his intimidation of Georgia officials. And there is also a New York Grand Jury that has already indicted him for financial and tax fraud.

All in all, this – or any – morning can’t be too pleasant for the twice-impeached former reality TV game show host. And he isn’t even pretending to hide his anxieties. In the rabid flurry of 27 posts Monday morning – including 9 by a proud QAnon crackpot – one of them complained about his being held legally accountable for his crimes. And in that comment he favorably likened himself to mob boss, Al Capone:

“I believe that I have more lawyers working for me on this Corrupt Law Enforcement induced Bull…. than any human being in the history of our Country, including even the late great gangster, Alphonse Capone!”

At least Trump is now owning the community in which he chooses to live, and the comrades that he admires. You just have to wonder where on his list of Deplorables he ranks Capone, as compared to Putin.

Tucker Carlson’s Insane Theory that Feds Recruited Pence in a Botched Plot to Take Down Trump

The epidemic of wayward classified documents is spreading like wildfire. It began with Donald Trump being caught with hundreds of such documents at his Mar-a-Lago hotel/home. Then President Biden came forward voluntarily to disclose that his lawyers had found a few documents at his Delaware abode. And most recently, former VP Mike Pence joined the club.

Fox News. Tucker Carlson

There are stark differences in the details of these revelations. Most notable is the fact that both Biden and Pence discovered the mishandled materials, that they claim were taken inadvertently, and immediately notified the proper authorities. Trump, on the other hand, admits to having taken the documents deliberately, lied to the FBI about having them, and refused to return them.

RELATED: Trump Whines ‘Leave Mike Pence Alone’ After Learning He Had Classified Documents at His Home

However, you have to credit Tucker Carlson of Fox News for concocting the most preposterous conspiracy theories about these affairs. On the Tuesday night episode of his primetime crackpottery, Carlson dived head first into an empty pool in a frantic attempt pollute the news cycle with utter nonsense. With a chyron declaring that “Mike Pence Swoops in to Save Joe Biden,” Tucker spun that…

“Just days ago, Mike Pence sent his personal attorney to search his family’s home in Carmel, Indiana, for classified documents. Now, if Mike Pence didn’t think he had classified documents, why would he send his lawyer to go look for classified documents? We can’t say for certain, but it’s entirely possible – in fact, it’s likely – that Mike Pence was asked to do this by federal prosecutors who are trying to build a case against his old boss, Donald Trump.

“Now, the point would be to show that not every federal official walks off with state secrets. Donald Trump was uniquely evil in that regard, as in so many others. See, Mike Pence didn’t do it. So if that was the plan – and we suspect that it was – it backfired spectacularly because Mike Pence’s lawyer promptly discovered classified documents. He immediately loaded these documents into his car and drove them back to Washington to hand them over to authorities.”

Wow. Just WOW! Carlson is puzzled that, after all the hoopla about Trump and Biden, Pence would seek to ascertain if he were similarly susceptible to the classified docs melodrama. Turns out he was, so it was a good call. But from Carlson’s perverse perspective there was more to the story. He asserted, without any factual basis, that it was “likely” that Pence had been recruited by federal prosecutors “to build a case against his old boss, Donald Trump.”

Carlson’s theory, like almost everything that he says (see his recent pro-cancer advocacy of tobacco), doesn’t hold water. Why would the discovery of classified documents at Pence’s home in Indiana have any bearing on the legal consequences for Trump? Trump remains at risk for his purposeful purloining of sensitive national security materials, and for his obstruction and dishonesty, regardless of whether or not anything was found at Pence’s home.

What’s more, Carlson’s conspiratorial contrivance was buried in a broader bucket of bullshittery that involved – who else? – Hunter Biden. Carlson cited a report in Rupert Murdoch’s slimy New York Post that he said proves that…

“Hunter Biden had classified information in his possession. Almost certainly that came from his father, then the vice president. And that he used that information to make piles of money for the Biden family while working at a fake job in Ukraine.”

Of course, there is absolutely no evidence of anything remotely resembling that accusation in the New York Post or anywhere else. Carlson just made it up. Which is typical for a deceitful propagandist whose own Fox News lawyers defended him – successfully – in a defamation lawsuit by arguing that “no reasonable person” would take him seriously. And even Tucker has a rather insightful opinion of himself. He began Tuesday’s segment saying that…

“A lot of what you read at this point feels not like news, but instead, like some highly curated version of reality crafted to manipulate you.”

Yep. That’s exactly what it feels like when watching Tucker Carlson and most everything else on Fox News. It was nice of him to point it out.

Trump Whines ‘Leave Mike Pence Alone’ After Learning He Had Classified Documents at His Home

The Case of the Classified Documents is getting more complex with each passing day. It began with Donald Trump stealing and hoarding hundreds of sensitive national security documents at his Mar-a-Lago hotel/home. Then it expanded to include documents found in President Biden’s home in Delaware. And now former VP Mike Pence has joined the club.

Donald Trump, Wah

While the underlying plot points have distinct similarities, the details reveal stark differences. For instance, both Biden and Pence assert that the documents in their possession were taken inadvertently. They both conducted voluntary searches and immediately turned over what they found to the FBI and the National Archives. By contrast, Trump still claims that the documents he took belong to him. He initially lied to the FBI about having them. And he refused to return them when asked, prompting the issuance of a search warrant for his Palm Beach bunker.

Trump continues to insist that he did nothing wrong. He has accused the Justice Department and the FBI of being “thugs” and “fascists” who are conspiring to destroy him. And now that Pence has been caught up in this melodrama, Trump, who recently renewed his accusations that Pence is a “Deep State” traitor for not trying to overturn the 2020 election results, is trumpeting Pence’s innocence. He posted a comment on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, saying that…

“Mike Pence is an innocent man. He never did anything knowingly dishonest in his life. Leave him alone!!!”

Did you hear that? Leave him alone! Pence appears to have done precisely what Biden did, but Trump wants him to be left alone. Meanwhile, he wants Biden to be drawn and quartered. What Trump did, in contrast to Biden and Pence, was deliberate and brazenly criminal. And yet he thinks he should be reelected to the presidency. Don’t try to make any sense of it. It’s just the rambling of a deeply disturbed egomaniac with a warped mind and no grasp of reality.

Predictably, Fox News is covering the Pence documents story with their usual bias and dishonesty. On Tuesday morning’s episode of “Outnumbered,” co-host Mollie Hemingway repeatedly tried to trivialize the matter of all classified documents being mishandled and falsely claimed that President Obama had disputes with the National Archives. She was parroting a recent Trump lie that Obama had taken classified documents to his home in Chicago. Then Hemingway unleashed this malarkey…

“What really made this whole thing different is when the National Archives took a fairly common paperwork dispute with a former president, one they despise, and they turned it into this big, carzy thing of raiding the home. And now, all of a sudden, they’re now being hoisted by their own petard here, where they’re now having to deal with the fact that there are problems with every former president and vice-president.”

Hemingway is pretty much alone in characterizing these events as merely “common paperwork disputes.” Not even Democrats are saying that about Biden. Most people agree that the mishandling of such materials is a serious matter. The question is whether it was inadvertent or deliberate.

On that score, Hemingway correctly noted that the difference between the Biden and Pence affairs, and Trump’s, is that Trump was subject to a search warrant. But she fails to acknowledge that the reason for it was because he refused to return the documents and lied about having them. The entire segment, and those that followed, were similarly slanted. But then, you didn’t expect Fox News to report on this matter factually and responsibly, did you?

Tucker Carlson Unleashes Insane Rant Advocating Tobacco Because ‘Nicotine Frees Your Mind’

The 2022 election cycle featured Republicans across the country furiously condemning Democrats as a ghoulish death cult that was deliberately seeking to harm Americans by affirmatively promoting violent crime, homicidal migrants, and the use and abuse of illicit narcotics.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Coronavirus

Naturally, Fox News reported this nightmare perversion of reality with sensationalized coverage of mostly made up stories fear mongering about nonsense such as Halloween candies laced with fentanyl. Undeterred by the fact that none of their macabre alarmism came to pass, Fox News continues to drown their intellectually enfeebled audience in profoundly dishonest and dangerous disinformation. Particularly about COVID which, due to the flagrant lies and conspiracy theories aired by Fox News, has been found to have killed more Republicans than Democrats.

RELATED: The Pandemic of the Unvaccinated? No! It’s the Pandemic of the Fox News Infected

Leading this putrid pack of propagandists is Tucker Carlson. And on Friday’s episode of his hour of contrived outrage, Carlson pontificated on his aberrant affinity for tobacco. He began by chastising Democrats for having the audacity to oppose the single most preventable cause of cancer, asserting falsely that…

“No wonder they hate tobacco. And it’s not because it causes cancer. They don’t care about your health. They closed the gyms during COVID. Anyone who would close a gym during a pandemic that kills fat people clearly doesn’t care about your health at all.”

Carlson’s “logic” is typically preposterous. He thinks that it would be beneficial for “fat” people to continue patronizing gyms – where there is profuse heaving breathing and sweating on the equipment – during the pandemic spread of a respiratory virus. And this isn’t the first time that he has associated Tobacco with obesity. Sure, overweight people are vulnerable to more severe consequences from COVID, and they should take measures to lose weight for general health reasons anyway. But that’s something they could do at home, or by taking long walks.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson Boldly Defends Tobacco (and Cancer?) as the ‘Most American of All Pleasures’

Carlson, however, would have people patronize the sort of facility that could expose them to the very virus that Carlson is admitting could be deadly for them. He is advising them to go to a densely populated public place where they can exercise to lose weight over a period of months, so long as they don’t get COVID and die in a week or two. That makes sense, right? But Carlson was just getting started. He went on to complain that…

“They hate nicotine. They love THC. They’re promoting weed to your children, but they’re not letting you use tobacco, or even non-tobacco nicotine delivery devices which don’t cause cancer. Why do they hate nicotine? Because nicotine frees your mind and THC makes you compliant and passive. They hate it. It’s a real threat to them.”

Really? First of all, Carlson cannot cite a single example of Democrats “promoting weed to your children.” Secondly, adults can use tobacco all they want, as long as they are not subjecting others to their toxic habit. Third, vaping has many serious health hazards of its own. Fourth, “nicotine frees your mind”??? What sort of cancer death cult has Tucker joined?

Carlson is clearly the one who doesn’t care about your health. He has spent the past couple years pushing COVID disinformation that contributed to the deaths of his own viewers. He has warned them that vaccines don’t work and “they” aren’t telling you.

Carlson recently praised GOP House Speaker Kevin McCarthy for reversing the Capitol smoking ban. Undoubtedly he believes that this new found freedom to suck up poisonous tar and nicotine, and expose others to the same health risks, is a boon to the testosterone deprived members whose masculinity has been on the decline due to the lack of properly tanned testicles. ‘One of the biggest stories in our lifetimes,’ Carlson has said, ‘is the total collapse of testosterone levels in American men.'”

On the same program, Carlson offered his pseudo-libertarian, anarchist view that all laws protecting people from harm are unconstitutional and should be abolished…

“The bottom line is they have no authority. They have no constitutional authority over your personal life. If it’s not in the public sphere, they have no right to ban it. You can smoke any kind of menthol cigarettes you want. You can cook in any stove you want. Only you decide what goes into your body, period. That’s the promise of America. And if we don’t stand up for that and say, ‘No, no. Come and get it.'”

So there you have it. Carlson is now advocating that everyone should be free to use tobacco, as well as fentanyl, meth, and heroin. The government should stay out of consumer product safety and allow lead paint, asbestos, and unsafe child car seats to go back on the market. Because that – getting killed by poisons and defective products – is “the promise of America.” And all this time you thought it was freedom and democracy. But is anyone surprised by Carlson’s latest harangue? He’s the same guy who recently embraced the concept of dissemating misinformation…
