A year and half ago, Donald Trump decisively lost the presidential election to Joe Biden. But the sting of that humiliation continues to torment the twice impeached, former reality TV game show host, and failed real estate con man. And in his desperation, Trump persists in peddling his “Big Lie,” the delusional, factless allegations that the election was “rigged.”

Throughout that same period of recent history, Fox News has embraced and dispensed Trump’s lies to their willfully gullible viewers. And now a new film is being pitched that purports to blow the lid off of the election fraud scandal. Surprisingly, its title, “2,000 Mules” is not a reference to the numerous jackasses who produced it. But unsurprisingly, it was featured on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program on Thursday night, between segments where he is fawning over Russian dictator, Vladimir Putin.

Carlson introduced this segment with a trio of Democrats asserting, correctly, that “the 2020 election was the most secure in history:”
Rep. Adam Schiff: The American people chose Joe Biden to be their next president by an enormous margin. The successful conduct of that election, among the most secure in American history, was not an accident.
Rep. Zoe Lofgren: The 2020 election was the most secure conducted in modern history.
Rep. Eric Swalwell: You’re gonna see states like Arizona and Georgia learn the wrong lesson from 2020, the most secure election ever.
To which Carlson replied with a maniacal laugh…
“That’s just the most secure election ever. Really hair hat? Tell us how. He can’t tell us how. He’s just lying. Maybe it was the most secure election ever, but we have a right to determine for ourselves if it was the most secure election ever. Period. We have an absolute, god-given right.”
And the video of this malarkey was posted by Donald Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington:

“Hair hat”? Let’s just set aside that boneheaded attempt at an insult. Carlson is complaining that those who claim that the election was secure can’t confirm it. Of course the obligation to confirm rests with those who allege fraud. And they have had a year and a half, and more than sixty court cases, to prove their allegations and have failed entirely. It is Carlson and his cohorts who are lying. If he is so intent on “determin[ing] for ourselves” whether the election was rigged, what’s stopping him? Why hasn’t he, or Trump, or Fox News, done so yet? Perhaps because they know they are lying.

On this episode of Carlson’s propaganda-fest, he interviewed the film’s producer, Catherine Englebrecht. She’s the president of True the Vote, a rabidly partisan and thoroughly disreputable band of wingnut activists. Englebrecht worked with the convicted felon, Dinesh D’Souza, on “2,000 Mules.” For the record, after pleading guilty, D’Souza was convicted of – wait for it – campaign finance fraud! A crime so heinous that, naturally, Trump pardoned him. Now he’s using his experience as an election cheat to make false allegations about election cheating.
Needless to say, the film that Carlson and Fox News are promoting contains no evidence of voter fraud whatsoever. If they had anything incriminating they would have already presented it in court, under oath, where legal remedies could be addressed. But they continue to have nothing but wild accusations without a shred of proof. In fact, all the proof is held by those who certified the election.
The New York Times contacted election officials in all fifty states, including Republicans, and every one said that there was “no evidence of widespread fraud or irregularities in this election.” That’s the same conclusion made by a “voting integrity” commission formed by Trump himself. And several members of Trump’s administration also upheld the legitimacy of the election. For instance, the director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Chris Krebs, said that…
“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. […] There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”
And that’s not all…
Christopher Wray, FBI Director: We have not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise.
Benjamin Hovland, of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission: Time and time again, when the rubber hits the road, there’s no evidence — whether that’s in court cases, whether that’s in the presidential commission that was … an embarrassment.
Ben Ginsberg, Veteran Republican Party Election Lawyer: As he confronts losing, Trump has devoted his campaign and the Republican Party to this myth of voter fraud.
Karl Rove: Mr. Trump must prove systemic fraud, with illegal votes in the tens of thousands. There is no evidence of that so far.
Attorney General William Barr: To date, [DOJ investigators] have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.
Attorney General Barr later elaborated on his view telling ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl (in his recent book “Betrayal”) that “My suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bullshit.” Which, come to think of it, is actually a pretty good description of Carlson’s crackpot conspiracy theorizing, as well as the whole four years that Trump was occupying the White House.

All the usual suspects think this actually means something. They’re all praising it, even though I question if they understand it.
But I have no desire to see this unless the Rifftrax boys get ahold of it….
In the case of Trump’s people, who have gobs of big bucks to throw into movies that simply claim to have “proof” of election fraud, while offering NO real evidence…they know doesn’t matter. Brainwashed followers will believe whatever they ‘re told to believe & will spread it all over on social media real quick. They don’t need to actually see the movie – just say that they did. Or, just repeat the same lies over & over — no proof needed for that crowd! Trump & his lying cohorts know what many despots & dictators + Karl Rove have long known ~ if you keep repeating a lie, often & loudly, it will be perceived as truth by those who hear it & repeat it… & that’s what they’ve easily done with their voters.
Endless repetition works. Back in school they called it “learning by rote” ~ it’s how we learned the multiplication tables. I’m 63 & still remember multiplication tables, don’t you? That was truth. Rethugs’ lies are not, but works the same way. Repetition puts it & keeps it in brain. Whatever you keep telling it.
Those asshats, TUMP and Carlson Tucker can tell all the lies they want to, even if i lived to be 100 years old i will NEVER EVER believe them. The stupid, ignorant, gullible, dropout, GQP voters are a different story though. I am appalled at the number of GQP voters that exist in the USA. They are so dumb they would most likely eat Cyanide poison if Tucker and TUMP told them to. There is no bottom to what the USA has come to now. Sickening and disgusting. It’s going to get worse if something isn’t done soon……….
“They are so dumb they would most likely eat Cyanide poison if Tucker and TUMP told them to.”
Sadly, I believe that a large # of them would. And that is insanity beyond my comprehension! This has gone SO FAR BEYOND any bullshit Party politics that I cannot picture any way in which any sense of “normalcy” resumes, at this point.
With a true psycho at the helm, the others who knew better chose to join the psycho’s game of destruction. All in it for themselves – greed, power, pridefulness. They did not think it thru to its conclusion & now they can’t get loose from its evil grip on them! Elected into power by those who trust them & following their lead, blindly believing the unbelievable lies devoid of any evidence & like sheep, the “sheeple” will say, do & follow theirs leaders to depths of hell if need be!
All are in too deep to find their way out now, even if wanted to & had GPS directions. That’s what can happen when people give up their ability to THINK & decide to use their head for nothihg more than a hatrack for an ugly, bright red hat that boldly claims their brainwashed stupidity for all the world to see!
And the world watches our demise in disbelief, some with smug joy, as the most arrogant American of all destroys America, with alot of help from his lying piece of shit cohorts. I just hope that those watching are writing notes, facts & the name of ALL those Rethuglicans who participated in any way. Let history record the unvarnished truth & name every dam* person associated with this, that they are never forgotten for what they’ve done…including *ucker Carlson & FauxSpews comrades!
May they also note that not everyone was on board that express train to hell… There were many of us trying to speak out with the truth, angry & disgusted by what we saw! We fought back as best we could & never gave in! We used the only power we had to use. Will it be enuff?
Great reply comment!! No way i could have said everything you said and then some…. i have watched these programs on the AHC channel about Adolf Hitler. For example the name of these programs are; ”Hitler’s Empire, the post war plan” , ”Hitler”, ”Evolution of Evil, Hitler: Benchmark of Terror” ”Nazi Secret Files” ”Project Nazi, Blueprints of Evil” These programs are real and have authentic film footage of Hitler’s rallies and actual film footage of the Soviet invasion on Berlin ,Germany and much much more… At the beginning of one of these programs, the narrator proclaims ” This is the definitive guide to the most hated man in history, Adolf Hitler” I just wish all these right wind nut jobs were required to watch all of this and then ask them is this kind of place you want to the United States to become under Fascist, Nazi, Dictatorship??? These programs show dead bodies heaped up into piles up to 10 feet high at the concentration camps. Dead bodies that were starved, beaten to death. Actual film footage. It’s hard to watch. Even the evil Soviets were appalled when they found this in World War II. According to what the narrator of the program said, Hitler was responsible for over 60 million deaths. Hitler got what was coming to him at the end of the war in April 1945, but the horrible damage had been done. I can’t understand for the life of me why people here in the United States, especially middle and lower class people would want Fascist rule…..Hitler was a blatant liar just like the GQP leadership is here in the good ole United States. One more note, the genocide here in the United States will be carried out in a much different way when the Fascists do away with social programs such as, Social Security, Snap Benefits, Unemployment benefits, Disability benefits and all other programs that help the needy. Millions will die from starvation and illnesses caused by being homeless and untreated disease. Need i say more?? I don’t think so…. i am angry and very concerned about this…
