Dear Leader Trump Brags that His MAGA Cult is Beating the Failing Republican Party

The looming threat to democracy in America posed by Donald Trump and his tyrannical aspirations continues to smolder among the glassy-eyed disciples who have pledged themselves to their malignant messiah. It’s a movement that resembles most closely the reigns of the fascistic tyrants that Trump idolizes and strives to emulate.

Donald Trump Rally, Sieg Heil

On Saturday Trump held the latest of his traveling salvation shows in Ohio, ostensibly to boost the struggling campaign of Republican senatorial candidate, J.D. Vance. But one would be hard pressed to find much expression of support for Vance during the hour long harangue. In fact, Trump’s introduction to Vance could hardly be characterized as complimentary when he said that “JD is kissing my ass, he wants my support so bad.”

RELATED: Wannabe Kingmaker Donald Trump’s Latest Endorsement (Vance) Reveals His Big Fat Flaming Ego

True to form, Trump spent nearly the entire time exalting himself, disparaging his foes, lying profusely, and vilifying America as “a nation in decline,” and awash in crime, corruption, and cultural depravity. To be fair, those are all subjects that he should be well acquainted with.

Trump’s allegiance to other Republicans is always conditioned on their demonstration of unflinching adoration and loyalty to him. So even though Vance has previously described Trump as “noxious,” “outrageous and offensive,” and “an idiot,” Trump can forgive him if he kneels to kiss his posterior.

However, at the same time Trump also used this rally speech to distance himself even farther from the Republican Party that he is supposed to be leading. At one point he explicitly distinguished support for him from that of the GOP saying that…

“We got 12 million more and we lost. We didn’t lose. We lost in their imagination. And we’re leading Biden now in all the polls and we are leading also all Republicans by record numbers. The Republicans are not doing too well.”

Let’s just set aside Trump’s initial concession that he lost the 2020 presidential election, and his clumsy attempt to recover and reiterate the “Big Lie” that he won. His criticism of the Republican Party seems to suggest that he isn’t actually affiliated with it. He is bragging that his MAGA cult is beating the GOP, and that the GOP, in contrast to whatever he is, is “not doing too well.”

That’s nothing new for Trump. He has been a fierce critic of his own party’s members and leadership from his first day’s as a candidate. It’s not because he is an independent thinker and places principle above party. It’s because he places himself above everything. He recently commented on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, that “Without the Rallies and, even more importantly, the Endorsements, most [Republicans] would lose.”

Trump is not nearly as popular as he thinks he is. His approval rating is a dismal 34%, well below President Biden at 45%. And a recent New York Times poll shows that voters prefer Biden over Trump by 45% to 42%, in a hypothetical 2024 matchup. What’s more, a poll in July found that “Close to half of Republican primary voters want someone other than former President Trump to run in 2024.” Perhaps it’s because of his rampant criminal activities.

So as usual, Trump is living in a alternative universe of delusion and self-glorification. Which is conveniently in sync with his cult devotees. Like the this who was ecstatic that her savior spoke to her…

WOW! Sean Hannity and Ted Cruz Agree that Trafficking Migrants Across State Lines is Illegal

In the past few weeks Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis, the governors of Texas and Florida respectively, have been in the news for engaging in deplorable political stunts that are deliberately cruel and probably illegal. They have been transporting migrants from their states to other states that they regard as bastions of liberalism hundreds of miles away. It is a brazenly inhumane campaign of exploitation that uses these refugees as pawns in their partisan game playing.

Fox News, Sean Hannity

These repulsive, self-serving tactics by ambitious Republican politicians are intended only to humiliate their liberal counterparts and progressive, compassionate policies. They are conducted without the slightest regard for the welfare of the their human victims, including children, or for solutions to the underlying issues. Not that Republicans in the era of Donald Trump ever really cared about people or laws.

RELATED: Obviously Addled Trump Utterly Misconstrues Report that the FBI Paid a Russian Informant

Which makes it somewhat surprising to hear Sean Hannity interviewing GOP Sen. Ted Cruz on Fox News about the potential criminality of these actions. The discussion included the following exchange…

Hannity: From a legal standpoint, let’s say I went down to the border and I brought a big truck with me and I picked up a bunch of illegal immigrants and I started transporting them across the country. Would I, or would I not likely be arrested for human trafficking, and would it be illegal to do that?
Cruz: For you, a citizen, you could easily be arrested. Although, to be honest, Joe Biden’s Justice Department wouldn’t arrest you.
Hannity: Oh no. I disagree. They’d arrest me. If I was a liberal I’d get away with it.

So there you have it. Hannity and Cruz agree that trafficking migrants across state lines, and lying to them about their destination, would be illegal and likely lead to their arrest. That’s a position that concurs with many legal experts. Gavin Newsom, the governor of California, formally requested the Department of Justice to investigate whether federal laws were broken. In his letter to the DoJ Newsom said that…

“Like millions of Americans, I have been horrified at the images of migrants being shipped on buses and planes across the country to be used as political props. Clearly, transporting families, including children, across state lines under false pretenses is morally reprehensible, but it may also be illegal.”

Elaborating on his dubious legal acumen, Cruz goes on to call President Biden “the biggest human trafficker on the face of the planet.” Naturally, he didn’t bother to supply any coherent support for that hyperbolic nonsense.

It is likely that Hannity and Cruz would justify their remarks by trying to distinguish the legal differences between private citizens like themselves trafficking migrants, and government agencies doing so. However, neither Abbott nor DeSantis attributed their migrant relocation program to any official arm of their state governments, nor did they cite any legal statute that permitted it. So they were acting as individuals, while spending (wasting) millions of taxpayer funds.

What’s more, they purposefully refused to notify the states where they sent the migrants so that preparation could be made for their arrival. But they did notify Fox News. Which is further evidence that this was a political act, not one under the auspices of the state government.

RELATED: LOL: Sean Hannity Thinks He’s Helping Trump By Scrolling a Long List of His Crimes on Fox News

Consequently, the mutual conclusions by Hannity and Cruz that such activities would be illegal is a significant event. They are affirming that Abbott and DeSantis should be investigated for crimes and indicted if sufficient evidence is found. And unlike most of what these two cretins say, that’s a conclusion that most Americans who believe in law and order, and equal justice, would agree with.

Tucker Carlson Exposes His Perverse Obsession with Hillary Clinton and Women’s Sexuality

The list of things that Fox News gasbag Tucker Carlson hates is long and disturbingly sociopathic. It includes immigrants, people of color, the LGBTQ, Democrats, and with aberrant emphasis, women. He is, after all, the network’s senior televangelist for testosterone doping and testicle tanning.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, M&M

When Carlson isn’t accusing Democrats and immigrants of plotting a “white replacement” campaign to overturn America’s Christo-Caucasian supremacy, or sucking up to fascists like Viktor Orbán (and Vladimir Putin, and Donald Trump), he’s whimpering about the loss of masculinity among the nation’s male folk.

RELATED: Macho Poser Tucker Carlson’s Journey from ‘Dancing With the Stars’ to ‘The End of Men’

On Thursday night’s episode of Carlson’s “60 Minute Hate Fest,” he unleashed a particularly nauseating harangue aimed at Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea (video below). He began his perverse prattle by complaining falsely that Hillary Clinton was “talking about the female pudenda.” He elaborated fantasizing that…

“Hillary Clinton likes to talk about that. We’re not gonna speculate as to why. And so she does. And she did it recently in her brand new TV show called “Gutsy” [Carlson laughs maniacally]. It’s an amazing cliché fest. And she immediately zeroes in on the one thing you really don’t want to hear too much about. Which is some rap queen singing about her genitals. But here’s Hillary Clinton complimenting a rap queen for singing about her genitals. It’s one of the creepiest things ever recorded.”

Gutsy is TV program produced by the Clintons and based on their book of the same name. It features their conversations with inspirational women who had “the courage to stand up to the status quo.” Naturally Carlson was offended. He played a brief video clip of Hillary and Chelsea talking with rapper, Megan Thee Stallion…

Hillary: Chelsea follows rap music ever since she was a little girl. But I kind of came to awareness of you with Cardi B “WAP.”
Megan: Men, they seem so confident in what they’re saying. And they don’t have no problem talking about their sexuality and how they’re gonna have sex with you. So I was like, I can do that. And it’s gonna sound fire coming from a woman.
Chelsea: It’s great to see women be so fierce.

So according to Carlson, that’s “one of the creepiest things ever recorded.” To most other rational, intelligent people it’s an insightful observation about sexuality in popular culture. Carlson reacts to Chelsea’s appreciation of female fierceness by sarcastically grumbling…

“Yeah, it’s great. The concern here, of course, is that Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are complimenting that woman for talking in public about her sexuality. There’s a very short hop from that to Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton talking about their sexuality. And America, frankly, can’t handle that. We’re not strong enough right now.”

To be clear, it’s just Carlson – and his feeble viewers – who can’t handle it. Apparently in Carlson’s deviant mind it is short hop from a successful and respected rapper talking about the influences in her music, to the sexuality of Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. That says so much more about Carlson’s carnal depravity than it does about anything related to the Clintons. But then, that shouldn’t surprise anyone. He recently confessed his sexual fixation on cartoon candy characters. So it’s not exactly a revelation that he’s a twisted, lecherous, perv with a Clinton fetish.

Obviously Addled Trump Utterly Misconstrues Report that the FBI Paid a Russian Informant

September has been a bad month, so far, for the twice-impeached, former reality TV game show host, Donald Trump. The fallout from his having stolen, hoarded, and lied about having highly sensitive national security materials stashed at his Mar-a-Lago bunker continues to pose significant legal peril for him and his anti-American crime syndicate.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin

In addition to being the subject of criminal and civil investigations from New York, to Georgia, to Washington, D.C., to the federal Department of Justice, his pitiful Twitter ripoff, Truth Social is floundering. His lawsuit against Hillary Clinton was laughed out of court. His buddy and co-conspirator Mike Lindell had his phone confiscated at a Hardee’s. And even Fox News has been shying away from their role as knee-jerk Trump defenders.

RELATED: Fox News Publishes Brutal NY Times Story that a GOP House ‘Could Plunge US and World Into Chaos’

Consequently, Trump is sinking ever further into an abyss of incoherence and desperation. On Thursday Trump posted comments on his alt-Twitter that parroted some recent contrivances in the ultra-rightist press. These stories are badly distorted versions of the news that special counsel John Durham’s investigation is wrapping up with almost nothing to show. It took 29 months and $40 million dollars to produce goose eggs, rather than the mother lode of incriminating evidence they hoped for against Hillary Clinton or whoever they are obsessing over. As reported by CNN

“In all, Durham has prosecuted just three people: [Igor] Danchenko, the acquitted Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, and a low-level FBI lawyer named Kevin Clinesmith, who avoided jail by pleading guilty in 2020 to doctoring an email in 2017.”

For the record, the Mueller probe took only 22 months and resulted in 34 indictments and eight convictions of close associates of Trump including Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, and Roger Stone.

Trump’s comments took a decidedly deranged turn by latching unto the only case still pending from Durham’s inquisition. Trump wrote that

“FBI working with Russia to get Trump. If this were reversed, it would be the biggest story in 50 years. The Fake News Media does everything possible not to cover it – but the people know!”

And that

“The biggest story of them all. They worked with the Russians, not “Trump.” It was all made up by the FBI and their SleazeBag friends. Then we’re supposed to trust them?”

So Trump is now whining that the “FBI [was] working with Russia to get Trump.” And he wonders what would happen “if this were reversed.” But Trump apparently doesn’t know what “reversed” means. If this were reversed it would be “Trump is working with Russia to get the FBI.” Which, ironically, is true. Everything Trump is doing and saying is anti-FBI, who he has called “disgraceful,” “dishonest,” and “completely corrupt.” That’s an assessment that Russia not only agrees with, but has worked tirelessly to promulgate.

The allegation by Trump and his lickspittle media mouthpieces is that a source for the infamous “Steele Dossier” was briefly paid by the FBI as an informant. From that morsel of unsupported info, the Trump faction concludes that the FBI was working “with” Russia to take down Trump.

What they fail to grasp is that the FBI often pays informants for information about crime suspects. That doesn’t mean they are working with the crime bosses. In fact, it means just the opposite. They are working with people who turned against the bosses. If the FBI pays a mob informant they are working against the mob, not with it.

The informant in this case is an example of that. Danchenko was not a Russian ally. He was a dissident who left Russia to live in the U.S., and he was ratting out his former associates in the Kremlin. By disparaging Danchenko it’s Trump who is, in effect, working with Russia. Again. So…same as it ever was.

CNN Moves Don Lemon and Others to New Morning Show in Major Network Shake Up

On Thursday morning CNN announced that it is moving primetime anchor, Don Lemon, to a new morning show, that he will co-anchor along with Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins. It’s the latest in a series of programming changes by the network’s new CEO, Chris Licht.

Donald Trump, CNN

The move out of primetime for Lemon may look on the surface like a demotion. However, mornings are one the biggest revenue generating time periods in television news and it gives Lemon three hours daily instead of two. So it’s hard to assess whether there was any intention on the part of Licht to suppress Lemon’s generally liberal-leaning views. The test will come when we see his presentations in the new morning lineup, and when Licht announces who gets the now vacant primetime slot. Licht also still has an open slot where Chris Cuomo used to air.

RELATED: CNN Cancels ‘Reliable Sources’ – Brian Stelter Walks – As Network Leans to the Right

For his part, Lemon celebrated the change saying that it was “time to shake things up,” and that he was “honored by [Licht’s] belief in me.” CNN’s announcement stated that…

“The network on Thursday unveiled a new marquee morning program that will debut later this year, anchored by stars Don Lemon, Poppy Harlow, and Kaitlan Collins. […] In recent weeks, Licht has started to put his stamp on the network’s programming, with the announcement of the new morning show his most significant move to date.”

Nevertheless, partisans on both sides are staking out positions on the move. Keith Olbermann addressed it with the benefit of his personal past experience at MSNBC with Licht…

“Chris Licht (who, when we worked together at msnbc, I believed used to eat paste) has now surrounded Don Lemon with an ex-Daily Caller “journalist” and somebody who last month demanded an apology from Biden to Republicans.”

On the other side, Sean Hannity of Fox News weighed in with his customary lack of any beneficial experience (also misspelling the name of “Christ” Licht}, saying that…

“LEMON LOSES PRIMETIME: Don Downgraded to Morning Show Slot”

CNN recently merged with Discovery Networks, which has a notably conservative executive team and board of directors. When Licht was hired to run the network it seemed like a positive choice considering that he was previously the producer of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” But that may have been a premature assessment.

Licht almost immediately began making statements about how he is more interested in cutting back on news analysis in favor of just presenting a dryer, context-free brand of straight news. And his first programming decision was to cancel Brian Stelter’s “Reliable Sources.”

If CNN’s new management thinks that striving for some form of artificial neutrality is going to garner them more ratings or respect, they will be sadly mistaken. The right is going to demonize them no matter what they say. They have the “CNN = Communist News Network” baked in. And Donald Trump has already started lying about what’s going on at the network:

RELATED: Big Liar Donald Trump Lies Bigly that CNN Has Prohibited Saying the Phrase ‘The Big Lie’

There could be pluses and minuses about this program change. Lemon has a strong following and could provide some serious competition for Fox and Friends and Morning Joe on MSNBC. But how the primetime hours will be filled is going to tell us more about the direction CNN is headed. If Jim Acosta moves into the timeslot, there may yet still be hope. If it’s Chris Wallace, not so much.

Fox News and Trump FREAK OUT Over the FBI Seizing MyPillow Guy Mike Lindell’s Phone

Now they’ve done it. The Marxist Biden Deep State Justice Department thugs have done the unthinkable. They have assaulted the servile liberties of the gratingest American businessman and Internet loudmouth since – well, since real estate barren, casino bankrupter, charity skimmer, and twice-impeached former reality TV game show host, Donald Trump. That’s right, the MyPillow guy, Mike Lindell, joins the ranks of those persecuted by President Biden’s FBI stormtroopers.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Mike Lindell, MyPillow

In a plaintive whimpering video, Lindell revealed that the FBI had surrounded him at a Hardee’s eatery and forced him to surrender his cell phone. As the Daily Beast reported: “The search warrant requests data from Lindell’s phone, including any information it contains about damage to Dominion voting machines.” Shortly thereafter, Lindell managed to find some other device so that he could post a video announcing the seizure, despite the FBI requesting that he keep quiet about it.

Not surprisingly, this atrocity was quickly picked up by Fox News, where their Senior Fascismo Conspiracy Monger, Tucker Carlson was predictably perturbed. Upon learning of the phone abduction, Carlson unleashed a typically angst-ridden response…

“This is a Fox New Alert! A shocking one. We told you last night that the Biden administration has politicized law enforcement to the point where it feels Soviet and we were not overstating it. The FBI has just raided the guy who sells pillows on this channel. Not because the pillows are bad, but because of who he voted for.”

No, Carlson isn’t overstating it at all. He’s calmly and rationally issuing a “shocking” “Fox News Alert” to announce that the “Soviet” FBI “raided” his top advertiser for having voted for Trump.

Setting aside that Fox News uses the “Alert’ label for everything from earthquakes to surfing dogs, Carlson is falsely implying that the FBI raided Lindell’s home, which they did not. They simply approached him at a fast food restaurant and politely (according to Lindell) asked for his phone. They presented him with the search warrant, that was authorized by a judge, and advised him they were seeking information related to criminal activity.

Carlson, however, can’t be bothered with facts. He’s fixated on the heinousness of law enforcement doing their job. But Carlson wasn’t alone. His primetime colleague, Laura Ingraham, was also compelled to attack the agents for their audacious attention to those pesky legalities. She had the following exchange with her similarly outraged guest, ultra-rightist judicial pundit, Mike Davis…

Ingraham: It’s almost as if they’re seizing phones of anyone who might have communicated with the President, or anyone who’s close with the president. Am I out on a limb here or what?
Davis: This is scary stuff, Laura. We started out where they were going after Trump for non-crimes of keeping his presidential records at Mar-a-Lago. Now they’re going after his supporters. They’re going after his supporters for apparently the non-crime of questioning an election. You have to have a predicate crime in order to have Grand Jury subpoenas and warrants. What’s the crime they’re investigating? Questioning the election? We’re not a Marxist hellhole yet. I’m not understanding how the Biden Justice Department thinks that they can investigate these as crimes.

Yes, Laura. It’s fair to say that you are way out on a limb. For the record, the FBI isn’t “seizing phones of anyone who might have communicated with the [former] President.” They are seizing phones of anyone who might have been connected to a federal crime.

As for Davis, he is even farther out on that limb when he says that Trump hoarding – and lying about – highly sensitive national security materials at his Palm Beach hotel/home is a “non-crime.” And the FBI isn’t “going after” people who question the election. They’re going after coup plotters who tried to undermine democracy and overthrow the rightfully elected government. Davis pretends that he doesn’t know what the predicate for the subpoena was. But if he really doesn’t know, he’s both ignorant and dishonest.

The concerns of Carlson and Ingraham for Lindell can be traced to their dependence on him for advertising dollars. They have both lost most of their national advertisers and now rely on MyPillow as their biggest source of ad revenue. MyPillow accounts for at least 20% of the ads on Carlson’s show. In fact, MyPillow ads are running at an all time high on Fox News. And the second biggest advertiser is Fox News itself, promoting other Fox programs.

What makes this even more humorous is that Lindell had recently pulled all of his ads from Fox News in a fit because they wouldn’t run his ad promoting an election deniers conference that he held. Apparently he got over it.

Finally, Trump could not resist the impulse to weigh in this. He posted this comment on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social

“Breaking News: Mike Lindell, “THE Pillow Guy,” was just raided by the FBI. We are now officially living in a Weaponized Police State, Rigged Elections, and all. Our Country is a laughing stock all over the World. The majesty of the United States is gone. Can’t let this happen. TAKE BACK AMERICA!”

If the United States is a “laughing stock all over the World,” it’s just the residue of Trump’s prior occupation of the White House and his continued whining about having so decisively lost reelection to Joe Biden. But the fact that Lindell and other Trump co-conspirators are being scrutinized by the FBI is rapidly restoring credibility to America’s laws and Constitution.

LOL: Sean Hannity Thinks He’s Helping Trump By Scrolling a Long List of His Crimes on Fox News

If anyone needs further proof that Donald Trump is desperately in fear of the legal peril that is rapidly engulfing him, all they need to do is take a look at his posts on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. He is currently using the site as a cathartic release valve for his smoldering anxieties.

Donald Trump Sean Hannity

Trump has good reason to worry. On Monday it was reported that dozens of subpoenas were issued to Trump associates/accomplices for information regarding his criminal affairs. That’s just the latest in an avalanche of bad news for Trump as the long arm of the law gets ever closer to holding him accountable for an unprecedented crime spree. His terror is apparent as he tries to cover it up with inane posts and increasingly absurd accusations.

RELATED: SEMI-FASCIST? Trump Wants the FBI to ‘Raid’ the House of Joe Biden – AKA the White House

On Monday the Senior Trump-Fluffer on Fox News, Sean Hannity, waded into the legal sink hole in which Trump has taken residence. Hannity put together a segment that he surely thought would benefit Dear Leader’s quest for absolution. It featured a scrolling list of many of the crimes and investigations of Trump that are currently in progress. It is not nearly comprehensive, but is damning nonetheless. It includes in part…

  • Russian collusion
  • Misusing inaugural funds
  • Election interference
  • Extortion of Ukrainian president
  • Stormy Daniels hush money
  • Save America PAC donor ripoff
  • Real estate and tax fraud
  • Truth Social Stock Scam
  • Mar-a-Lago’s classified documents
  • January 6th insurrection

How on Earth did Hannity think that it would help Trump to enumerate his vast violations of the law? It is merely a handy itemization of his rap sheet. Now Democrats may have to send Hannity a “Thank You” note for providing such a helpful summary of Trump’s criminality, immorality, and treason. This inventory of illegality is exactly what is tormenting Trump. Will he appreciate Hannity so nicely compiling it?

Also on Monday Trump dropped 25 self-exalting posts that appear to be his pitifully vain attempts to remind himself of his imagined superiority and utter innocence of any crime. These posts included such narcissistic affirmations as a meme that projects his tyrannical reign of power to 2048, a Gateway Pundit article on election fraud, and a QAnon picture of Trump wearing a “Q” lapel pin and featuring the QAnon slogans “The Storm is Coming” and “WWG1WGA” (where we go 1, we go all).

Apparently in Trump World, a gathering storm is a good thing, rather than a potentially catastrophic event that brings destruction, pain, and grief.

It will be interesting to see if Trump has anything to say about Hannity’s catalog of crime. Trump is already angry at Fox News for not being sufficiently worshipful in their coverage of him. He has at times virtually written off the network as beholden to radical leftists. And he has been relentlessly bashing what he once regarded as his Ministry of Propaganda. For instance…

Trump Threatens to Sue Fox News For Airing Lincoln Project Ad that Reveals the Victims of His Grifting

Trump Fumes That Fox News has ‘Gone to the Dark Side’ and Purposely ‘Botched’ His Polling

Crybaby Trump Bashes Fox News, ‘Perverts’ and ‘RINOS’ Who ‘Didn’t Have the Guts’ to Impeach Him

Not to worry though. Whenever Trump needs some emotional support he still relies on Fox News to give him uninterrupted airtime and unabashed slobbering. His love/hate relationship with Fox is like everything else in his life: As long as they are unflinchingly loyal to him he’s a happy camper. But waver even slightly and suffer his rage.

Fox News Host Criticizes Democrats for Having the Audacity to Oppose … Fascism?

It’s been two weeks since President Biden delivered his historic Soul of America speech, wherein he alerted the nation to the growing threat of authoritarian forces deeply embedded in Donald Trump’s MAGA crusade. The speech addressed the stark choice that the country faces between being “a nation of hope and unity and optimism, or a nation of fear, division, and of darkness?”

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump

In the intervening weeks, Fox News has remained fiercely fixated on what they have falsely characterized as Biden’s hostility to half the nation. Never mind that Biden explicitly said that he was not referring to all Republicans, or even to all Trump supporters. The dishonest narrative that Fox News was intent on promulgating was more important than the truth.

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

That same seething obsession was evident on Monday’s episode of Fox and Friends. in a response to remarks by her guest, far right radio talker Jason Rantz, co-host Harris Faulkner latched onto the fake Fox factoid that Biden had insulted the MAGA cultists saying that…

“If they’re anti-semi-fascist, which is how they see more than half the country now – because Democrats are looking up and saying ‘Look we we just want lower prices. Where’s that $1.99 gas.’ – Are they pro-Antifa?”

There is so much wrong in that sound-fright that it requires some delving into. First of all, Faulkner is still lying that Biden was referring to “half the country,” when he was clearly referring only to MAGA extremists, like the insurrectionists who stormed Congress on January 6th. And even if Biden was referring to every Republican voter, it still wouldn’t be anywhere near 50% the country. There are 350 million people in the U.S. Only 71 million voted for Trump. Which is about 21% of the country, as well as seven million fewer than voted for Biden. Granted, 21% is still way more than we should tolerate, but it’s way less than than what Faulkner and every liar on Fox News has been regurgitating.

What’s more, Faulkner is not a particularly reliable source for what “Democrats are saying.” However, her whining about gas prices appears to be stuck several weeks in the past. Gas prices have dropped for 13 weeks in a row. And the only reason it was two bucks during Trump’s term was because of the COVID-19 pandemic that he so terribly mismanaged. Does she really want to go back to those days when no one was driving or leaving the house because thousands were dying every day?

More to the point, Faulkner’s complaint that Democrats are “pro Antifa” isn’t the beat-down that she thinks it is. Setting aside the fact that there is no such Democratic entity, being anti-fascist is a broadly popular position in this country. There are many others who likewise consider themselves anti-fascist. They’re called patriotic Americans. But if Faulkner and Fox News want to brag about being pro-fascist, we might as well let them. After all, their Dear Leader Trump doesn’t even bother to disguise it anymore.

Al Franken Shows How to Make Republican Hacks Squirm By Using this One Little Trick – Truth!

CNN has not exactly been dignifying itself lately. It’s new management appears to be shifting its editorial direction more to either an artificial neutrality or downright conservativism. They have fired honest journalists like Brian Stelter and John Harwood. And sources say they are pushing remaining personnel to be more “Republican-friendly.”

Al Franken, GOP Elephant

However, on Saturday one of the remaining bright lights at the network, Jim Acosta, invited Al Franken on to debate GOP strategist April Stewart about the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. To put it mildly, it didn’t go well for Stewart.

The discussion began with Acosta playing a video of Vice-President Kamala Harris lamenting that the current Supreme Court is “an activist Court” as exemplified by its decision overturning Roe v Wade. Acosta then turned to Franken, who pointed out that if the Court’s reputation was suffering, it was because of Republicans disrespect for the institution. Franken cited as examples how they refused to take up the nomination of Merrick Garland due to the proximity of a presidential election, which was a year away, but then confirmed Amy Coney Barrett within a few weeks of an election.

Franken began by stating flatly and factually the circumstances that led to the confirmations of Justices Gorsuch and Barrett as having been “stolen.” What followed was an exchange that exposed the utter vacancy of the GOP’s position. Stewart attempted to revise history with a false argument about why Garland was snubbed. But Franken wasn’t having it (video below)

Franken: They’ve stolen two seats: the one that Merrick Garland wasn’t given a hearing for, and the one that Coney Barrett, where she was seated a week before the election. That destroyed the legitimacy of the court.
Stewart: To throw some accuracy in what Al said there, Merrick Garland was held up because we had divided government, a Democrat in the White House, and Republicans in control…
Franken: That’s not what McConnell said.
Stewart: But that’s the way historically this has been. When you’re in close to an election year and you have divided government….
Franken: No, that’s not the way it’s been historically done.
Stewart: When you have divided government, there typically is inclination to…
Franken: Tell me when this happened before. Tell me when it happened before.

Stewart ignored Franken’s question and tried repeatedly to push a narrative that had no resemblance to reality. And each time she did, Franken interrupted to ask her again to simply “tell me when it happened before.” She never could. And finally, Franken explained to her why she couldn’t cite another example…

Stewart: I can’t give you an exact example when this happened in the past.
Franken: You know why you can’t? Because it hasn’t happened before.

Stewart’s humiliating stammering as she sought to spread a wholly fictional account of the Republicans’ deliberate poisoning of the Supreme Court’s credibility is emblematic of how little regard the GOP has for the Court and the Constitution. But Franken’s dogged defense of historical honesty is a master class in how to handle right-wing propagandists. Hopefully we will see more of that as the midterm election advances – and beyond.

Tucker Carlson Hypes Steve Bannon Conspiracy Theory that FBI is ‘Purging’ Trump Supporters

You know for sure that you’re scrapping the bottom of the barrel when you’re reporting “news” based on what Steve Bannon says. And that’s where Tucker Carlson of Fox News found himself on Friday. Not that Carlson’s sources for news have ever been credible, or even sane.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

Carlson’s Friday episode of his “White-Wing Power Hour” featured a segment that began with the moth-eaten “Fox News Alert” banner that adorns every story on the network, from immigrant caravans full of diseased gang members, to Democrats desexualizing animated candy characters..

Carlson was in his typical state of confused hysterics over another sensationalized event he heard about from one of his crack (addicted?) stringers. According to incorrigible felon, Steve Bannon, the “jack-booted Gestapos” of the FBI are on a rampage, “raiding” the lairs of dozens of “innocent” Trump cult followers at the direction of President Biden. Never mind that there is no evidence whatsoever of any such raids. That doesn’t deter Carlson from reporting this fake atrocity as fact…

“So a remarkable story… A Fox News alert for you. We don’t know the parameters of it but apparently the FBI has launched a full-scale purge of supporters of Donald Trump. That would be Joe Biden’s likely opponent in the upcoming presidential election. And that purge has intensified significantly today. So Steve Bannon just said that yesterday alone, the FBI raided the homes of dozens of Trump allies.”

Notice that Carlson is asserting this nonsense as fact despite admitting that he doesn’t “know the parameters” of the fiction he’s disseminating on national TV. He portrays this imaginary injustice as a “full-scale purge” of Biden opponents whose homes were pillaged by rogue agents of the law. Purged from what, he doesn’t say.

Carlson went on to interview an attorney who said that she represented the alleged victims. But by her own count they were only three of them, and none of their homes were raided. They merely received subpoenas for information relating to crimes involving alternate electors, illegal fundraising, and the January 6th insurrection that Trump incited.

Throughout these segments, Carlson displayed chyrons on screen that said “FBI Reportedly Raids Dozens of Trump Supporters” and “Up To 50 Trump Supporters Raided Across the U.S.” Once again, there were no credible reports of any raids, even by the victims’ lawyer. The only “report” came from Bannon, who said without any verification that…

“There were 35 senior members of MAGA, Republicans, supporters of Donald Trump that the FBI rolled in on.”

This whole horror story appears to have been hatched after ABC News reported that a federal grand jury is investigating Trump’s ridiculously named “Save America” PAC for potentially unlawful fundraising schemes…

“A federal grand jury investigating the activities leading up the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and the push by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the result of the 2020 election has expanded its probe to include seeking information about Trump’s leadership PAC, Save America, sources with direct knowledge tell ABC News.” […]

“The subpoenas, sent to several individuals in recent weeks, are specifically seeking to understand the timeline of Save America’s formation, the organization’s fundraising activities, and how money is both received and spent by the Trump-aligned PAC.” […]

“Trump and his allies have consistently pushed supporters to donate to the PAC, often using false claims about the 2020 election and soliciting donations to rebuke the multiple investigations into the former president, his business dealings, and his actions on Jan. 6.”

From that seed of truth, Bannon and his confederates in the Trump propaganda factories, manufactured these allegations of non-existent raids. And Carlson was only too happy to pick up the ball and run with it. Yet somehow this sort of crapola is allowed to be aired on a network that claims to report the news, by a host who has argued in court that he can’t be held responsible for defamation because “no reasonable person” would ever believe what he says. Unfortunately, there are way too many unreasonable persons watching – and believing – Tucker Carlson and Fox News.
