QAnon Rep Lauren Boebert Has a Sad Over Biden Doing What He Was Elected To Do

President Biden is really confounding the Trump-deprived Republican Party. They have been struggling for weeks to find any line of criticism that is plausible, or even remotely believable. Their efforts have led to ludicrous contrivances roping in innocent victims like Dr. Seuss and Mr. Potato Head. But Biden’s approval has actually increased since he beat Donald Trump last November, and is double-digits higher than Trump’s was at the same point.

Republican False Knowledge

The GOP has taken a stridently anti-Biden path with knee-jerk opposition to his most ambitious initiatives. Not a single Republican in Congress voted for the COVID relief and stimulus bill that garnered majority support by the American people, including Republicans. They are similarly rejecting Biden’s infrastructure and jobs bill that has equal support across the political spectrum.

As a result, Republican backbenchers are throwing whatever mud they find handy at the wall and hoping something sticks. So far, they have come up empty, unless you count the humiliation they’ve accumulated. Take, for instance, Colorado QAnon congresswoman Lauren Boebert (please). On Sunday she tweeted this…

Fortunately, we don’t have to imagine that. Biden has come into office and set a course toward undoing much of the damage that Trump and his thug brigades worked so hard to achieve. Biden told voters he would do just that during his campaign, and he’s keeping his promise. What Boebert doesn’t get is that this is not some new staff at a business coming in and changing everything. It is a new administration in the White House that the American people put there to do precisely what they’re doing.

However, that isn’t the only thing that Boebert is too ignorant to comprehend. Later the same day she tweeted this…

Boebert thinks that America’s millionaires and billionaires deserve a tax holiday? Never mind that they already “profited handsomely” during the pandemic. As reported by USA Today, while “The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered an economic crisis of a magnitude not seen since the Great Depression [and] more than half a year later, more than 11 million Americans remain unemployed […] America’s 614 billionaires grew their net worth by a collective $931 billion.”

So naturally Republicans like Boebert want to throw more money at their wealthy benefactors. Biden, on the other hand, is focused on rest of the population that has just received another stimulus check that every Republican voted against. And Biden thinks that it’s time for the rich to pay their fair share, so he’s proposing increases on taxes, but only for those earning more than $400,000.

What’s more, Boebert’s disingenuous sympathy for the small business that were locked down, and the job losses she mentioned, doesn’t acknowledge that all of that economic pain was exacerbated by Trump and her party’s negligent and incompetent mishandling of the pandemic. After that, it’s rather callous of her to use the suffering of the American people as a cudgel against Biden who is actually doing something to help them.

Finally, Boebert also posted a hysterical complaint regarding Biden’s attention to the climate crisis. She tweeted…

That tweet was in response to reporting by Fox News that consisted of their customary lies and distractions (and was even retweeted by the governor of Texas):

The only thing you need to know about this is that none of it is true. While it would be beneficial to both the health of the planet and its human occupants to reduce their intake of red meat, the charge that Biden made a proposal to force its elimination is flagrantly untrue. See this thread (and this article) for more details:

This is the sort of desperation that Republicans are resorting to attack Biden and other Democrats. They haven’t got anything substantive to talk about, so they invent “scandals” and distribute them to their dimwitted cult followers. But true to form, they don’t even do that very well.

Newt Gingrich Tells Fox News Biden’s Agenda, that Majority Supports, is Anti-American

Whenever you hear Republicans bring up “traditional” values, it’s a safe bet that the speaker is a hypocritical slimeball. Case in point, Newt Gingrich showed up on Fox News Saturday to commiserate with Jeanine Pirro on how dreadfully amoral they think Democrats are. For the record, that’s the thrice-married Trump-fluffer Gingrich, and the divorced tax cheat and “Big Lie” peddler Pirro, opining on other peoples morals.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump Baby, Fake News

During the segment Gingrich delivered an extended sermon asserting his predictably hostile perspective on President Biden. It will surprise no one that Gingrich is a political foe of all things Democratic, however this particular outburst was even more malicious and dishonest than his usual bombast.

Gingrich began with an ad hominin insult about “Every idiotic thing that the Biden administration has done in the first 100 days,” but then failed to identify a single thing that would qualify as being “idiotic.” His elaboration just got even more distant from reality:

“You begin to realize – whether it’s threatening everybody who believes in the 2nd Amendment, or attacking everybody who believes in right to life, or is attacking people of traditional values who are appalled that this administration would fly the gay flag at American embassies all over the world – I mean you just go down, item by item, and it’s almost like they have a checklist of what can we do that will really, truly infuriate traditional Americans.

And I’ve never seen anything like it. Somebody asked me this afternoon and I told them I couldn’t imagine any administration which had been this deliberately anti-American, and this deliberately committed to infuriating the majority of the American people.”

Gingrich is articulating a definition of “traditional values” that is composed entirely of support for mass murder by unregulated firearms, opposition to women having control of their own bodies, and a firm commitment to blatant homophobia. Which makes his value system one of gun worshiping, misogynism, bigotry. That may be consistent with right-wing, religious zealotry, but not with the values enshrined in the Constitution.

What’s more, Gingrich’s assertion that Biden’s positions are “anti-America” is downright preposterous. And he knows it. He is enough of a political animal to have seen the polling on the issues he raised. And on every one of them, the American people are aligned with Biden and the Democrats.

Gun Safety: “Sixty-four percent of registered voters said in the Morning Consult-Politico tracking poll released Wednesday that they supported ‘stricter gun control laws in the United States,’ while 28 percent said they were opposed to tougher legislation.” [Also supported: Expanding background checks to all gun sales (83%); preventing people flagged by health providers as mentally unstable from owning guns (83%); banning people on federal watchlists from owning guns (76%); waiting periods of three days (73%); and national database of gun sales (70%)]

Pro-Choice: “Abortion rights in the U.S. are as popular now as they’ve ever been. Last year, nearly every major poll on abortion rights found support for Roe v. Wade at record highs. A June CBS poll found that nearly two-thirds of Americans want to keep Roe v. Wade’s protections in place, while less than one-third want to overturn them. It wasn’t just Democrats: A strong majority of independents and a plurality of Republicans said they wanted to keep Roe v. Wade around, too.”

LGBTQ Rights: “Seventy percent of Americans support same-sex marriage, according to the 11th annual American Values Survey, the highest percentage recorded by a major national poll. […] Approval crossed the political divide, with majorities of Democrats (80 percent) and independents (76 percent) supporting same-sex marriage, and 50 percent of Republicans.”

Consequently, if anyone is anti-American it’s Gingrich and his GOP confederates. They are consistently opposed to the priorities of the American people. Every Republican in Congress just voted against the broadly popular COVID relief/stimulus bill. And they are set to do the same to the infrastructure/jobs bill that just passed in the House. They are rejecting these bills on purely political grounds, even though majorities of their own constituents support them. That’s about as anti-American as you can get. Talk about “infuriating the majority of the American people.”

UPDATE: Also trolling the “anti-American” theme is Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo. She posted this glaringly ignorant tweet suggesting that Biden’s patriotism is suspect because there wasn’t an American flag behind him in his climate change Zoom summit with world leaders. She mistakenly said that…

“By the way, in that shot I think it’s also really interesting to point out that President Biden is the only leader without a flag behind him. Everybody has their flag. We don’t have the American flag behind Joe Biden. Interesting.”

Um, yes we do. It was just the angle and framing of the video. So much for Fox “news” research and reporting.
