Two years ago on January 6th, a Clown Corps of traitorous StormTrumpers invaded the seat of America’s democracy in a violent and deadly attempt to overthrown a legitimate election and install their Mar-a-Lago Messiah as president-for-life. But despite their pitiful failure they persist in the pursuit of a wingnut theocracy with Donald Trump in their throne.

In his quest for the the speakership of the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy promised that he would release all of the video available of what he still refuses to admit was an insurrection. And consistent with his string of already broken promises, he has chosen to make those videos available only to Tucker Carlson of Fox news.

On Monday morning Axios reported that…
“House Speaker Kevin McCarthy has given Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exclusive access to 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the Jan. 6 riot, McCarthy sources tell me.
“Carlson TV producers were on Capitol Hill last week to begin digging through the trove, which includes multiple camera angles from all over Capitol grounds. Excerpts will begin airing in the coming weeks.”
Seriously? If McCarthy thinks that giving Putin-loving, propagandist Carlson exclusive access to these videos is the same thing as releasing them to the public, he has succumbed to the same mental deterioration as his QAnon Caucus. Carlson will surely slice and dice what he receives in the most grotesquely biased manner. The public will only get to see what Carlson and Fox News serve up on their partisan platter.
Revelations of Fox’s dishonesty were recently disclosed in the defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems. In a motion for a summary judgment, Dominion published internal communications at Fox News showing that the hosts and executives never believed Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged and stolen” from him, even as they went on air proclaiming it as fact. And now they will want us to believe their misinterpretation of these videos?

As further proof of how ludicrous this is, Marjorie Taylor Greene was thrilled and tweeted that she was “very happy” with McCarthy for releasing the videos to Carlson because “Americans deserve to see the truth, not a one sided narrative and unfair two tiered justice system.”
Really? Even if McCarthy ends up releasing the videos to the public or other media, he has still benefited the Trumpists and insurrectionists by giving Carlson and Fox News a first look and a head start on injecting an entirely false narrative into the media ecosystem.
It would be bad enough if McCarthy merely released these videos to Fox News. But he could not have picked a worse person to dump them on than Tucker Carlson. Apparently McCarthy has forgiven him for calling him “a puppet of the Democratic Party.” Which is just another indication of McCarthy’s wet noodley weakness.
As for Carlson, he has made it his mission to spread flagrant lies about the January 6th insurrection. He’s celebrated the rioters as “patriots.” He’s maligned the FBI, without evidence, as the perpetrators of the violence. He even produced a lie-riddled crocumentary about the insurrection. And this is the person McCarthy chose to curate the thousands of hours of video to force feed their BS propaganda to the American people?
Nice work Kevin. You’ve selected someone who was deemed by his own attorneys to be so outrageously dishonest that they argued in court (successfully) that, given his reputation, “no reasonable person” would believe his bullpucky. And there’s more where that came from…

Excuse me? Kreepy Kevin has the right to do this? This country is more fucked than even I believed.
I have given up being surprised how fucked up our country has become. It can always get worse with the fascist Republicans in charge.
Can some of the less awful, more intelligent and maybe even somewhat ethical folks in the House not get an injunction to keep Kreepy Kevin from doing this? Are we totally defenceless against these MAGAt assholes?
It’s payback time for Kevin McCarthy since he sold his soul to the devil for the necessary amount of House votes that made him Speaker. And, here we have Marjorie Taylor Greene again. She knows Tucker calls the violent insurrectionists “Patriots”. She is all set to slave for her slave master, Trump. What is really tragic, is that Kevin McCarthy has been quoted by several news sources saying that he will “take care of her”. That means he gave her positions on both the Homeland Security and Oversight Committees. What else does it mean? It’s anyone’s guess.
You can bet Putin already is watching his copies of the assault tapes but I’m not sure it makes any difference. There’s no way to whitewash that attack on democracy no matter how hard Tucker tries.
“Exclusive Access” to Vladimir Putin’s spokes-critter? Just like the NRA, FOX spews is a tool of Vladimir Putin’s FSB. Putin bought and Paid for Snowden, Assange, and Bradley Manning. Those 3 little posers spout all types of tripe, in their efforts to Dictate to the world. All do claim a “Moral Superiority”, by birth and education. They did conspire to attack the USA, since none of them attacked anything Putin does. Not once did Snowden, tell Putin to get out of Ukraine where he is killing Ukrainian babys, daily. Why? Assange is on a “Go-Fund Me Campaign”, but refuses to beg from Vladimir Putin. Bradley Manning sought fame and publicity by stealing Classified Info, to give to AQssange. FOX spews, drips into their viewer’s minds a steady anti-American 24 hour a day Russian propaganda campaign, but Rupert Murdoch’s spawn are against our Nation. Murdoch’s ‘paid for’ US Citizenship should be terminated, since the Oath he swore to our Nation, by application, he never Honored by actions. It meant diddly squat in his putrid feigned loyalty to the USA.
