HAH! Fox News Turns Mike Johnson’s Conspiracy Theories Into a Great Campaign Ad – For Democrats

Now that the Republican Party has finally managed to install Rep. Mike Johnson as their “Speaker” in the House of “Representatives,” their Ministry of Propaganda – aka Fox News – is going all out to polish his public image and to create a digestible form of the poison that the GOP has been feeding America for years.

Fox News Sad

In an attempt to pretend that the chaos of the past three weeks was just a bad dream, Fox News is setting aside any reporting on how dysfunctional the Republican Party is. Never mind that it took them 22 days to select a replacement for their previous Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, who it took them a record 15 votes to confirm. And forget that the new Speaker has zero experience in congressional leadership, has never chaired a committee, and is wholly beholden to the GOP’s Dear Leader, Donald Trump.

SEE ALSO: Fox News Dangles Dopey Spin that Hakeem Jeffries Lost the Speaker’s Vote ’17 Times in a Row’

On Thursday morning’s episode of Fox News Outnumbered, co-host Emily Compagno sought to malign Democrats for being mean to their new Speaker. She, along with the rest of her GOP confederates, seem to think that Democrats have an obligation to accept the Republican Speaker and to save the GOP from itself. You know, because the GOP was always so kind and considerate to Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

However, for some reason Compagno thought it would advance her argument to itemize all of the crazy conspiracy theories to which Johnson has subscribed. So she proceeded to enumerate them for her fellow Foxies in the studio and at home…

“I want to draw everyone’s attention, however, to the way that the mainstream media and the left-wing media have been framing who Johnson is. I quote directly from Politico, the Washington Post, and NBC News, who call him a conspiracy theorist who…”

  • “Fought to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.”
  • “He supports abortion bans without limitation.”
  • “He’s opposed to LGBTQ rights.”
  • “And believes the FBI discriminates against conservatives.”
  • “He’s said that at least 100 known terrorists have crossed into the U.S. from Mexico.”
  • “And he voted against a re-auth[orization] of the ‘Violence Against Women Act.'”

Notably, Compagno doesn’t deny that any of those descriptions of Johnson are false. Perhaps that’s because they are all well documented, and even more significant, are planks of the GOP platform that they are actually proud of. Compagno went on to quote from the New York Magazine, saying that…

“‘Johnson has bridged the gap by combining total commitment to Trump’s authoritarian ambition, with a soothing low-key persona.’ So do not look for any type of support coming from the left, unfortunately.”

Once again, Compagno presents the description of Johnson as a soft-edged Trump flunky without rebuttal. So we can assume that she agrees with it. But her complaint of a lack of “support coming from the left” is profoundly bizarre. Does she think that the anti-democratic hate-mongering and lies in the positions that Johnson and the GOP hold are worthy of support from decent, patriotic Democrats? Does she expect the left to be celebrating the crackpottery of the MAGA right?

Democrats are decidedly unhappy with the current state of affairs in the House. They have been pushing for bipartisan solutions to the GOP’s Speaker fiasco for three weeks so that the people’s business can be attended to. However, Democrats probably are celebrating in one respect. Republicans appear to be doing everything they can to insure Democratic victories in November of 2024. The GOP’s embrace of Johnson and his abhorrent, fringe politics is likely to alienate centrist and unaffiliated voters.

To that end, Democrats could use the segment above from Fox News almost unedited in ads next fall. It’s reminiscent of the speech given by Marjorie Taylor Greene a few weeks ago wherein she whined that Democrats were doing a variety of wonderful things that most Americans support. At this rate, the Democratic Party could wind up saving a bundle by not having to produce their own ads.

Fox News Floats Inane Theory that Every Democrat Would Vote for Trump for House Speaker

In the continuing soap opera that is the Republican Party in the House of Representatives, the aftermath of the ouster of Squeaker McCarthy has ignited a firestorm of intramural fury within the GOP. They have commenced their circular firing squads and set a near certain course for the minority in 2024.

Donald Trump TV Set

The animosity between the establishment McCarthy supporters and the MAGA fringe faction is boiling over. The latter regard the former as RINOs, and the former regard the latter as traitors. Even as McCarthy has begun to walk back his promise not to seek a return to the speakership, his minions are reportedly plotting to banish the lead instigator of the Speaker’s coup, Matt Gaetz, from Congress.

SEE THIS: GOP-ers Ponder Expelling Matt Gaetz for Ethics Violations After His Failed Shutdown Scheme

Terrified of being ignored for a nanosecond, Donald Trump has waddled into the debate with fantasies of his own promotion from political loser to House Cat Herder. And the Senior Trump-Fluffer on Fox News, Sean Hannity, was quick to jump on board with support for this preposterous notion. However, the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends have some even nuttier notions. On Monday morning, co-host Steve Doocy dropped this slice of silliness…

“Donald Trump can’t be Speaker right now because there is a House rule that restricts people with felony indictments from House leadership, and because he is facing all those charges. The House certainly could change it, but I was talking to somebody down in DC yesterday.”

Let’s interrupt Doocy here to note that he is correct about the Republican Conference rule prohibiting any member from serving in a leadership post if they have been “indicted for a felony for which a sentence of two or more years imprisonment may be imposed.” But if you’ve only been indicted for a felony with a one year sentence, you’re cool. And, yeah, they could change that rule if they don’t mind the optics of embracing leaders with even more serious pending felonies. Like Trump, who has 91, so far. Then Doocy went to say…

“Just imagine if somebody put Donald Trump’s name into nomination. Every Democrat would vote for Donald Trump because, if you look at X (Twitter) right now, the White House and the DNC, they are talking about all the chaos on the Republican side with the Capitol coup. They would love the chaos to continue. So if Donald Trump were in nomination, every Democrat in the House would vote for him. And he only needs five Republicans. He could be – if they change that rule – the next Speaker. That would be crazy!

The idea that Democrats would vote en masse to make Trump Speaker of the House is beyond absurd. Democrats are not needed to help Republicans produce chaos. Republicans do that quite well all by themselves. And while Doocy is correct that Democrats – and everyone else in Washington – are aware of the chaos created by GOP incompetence, Democrats are not in favor of chaos. They would prefer it if Congress could behave like adults and pass bills that benefit the American people.

What’s more, if Democrats don’t want Trump to be president, what makes Doocy think they would want him to be Speaker? That would be – as Doocy aptly describes it – “crazy!” And that should go for Republicans too. If there is any plausible chance for a Trump speakership, it would only be by a majority of Republicans voting for him, along with a handful of prankster Democrats. And even that is highly unlikely.

If any party is angling for chaos, it’s the Republicans. They are the ones who orchestrated this Speaker debacle. They are the ones who nearly pushed the nation, and the world, into an economic collapse by threatening to default on the debt. They are the ones who wanted a devastating government shutdown. For Fox News to suggest that it’s the Democrats who are the chaos agents is just plain dishonest and/or idiotic. In other words, it’s business as usual at Fox News.

Fox News Cuts Out Democrats in Their Coverage of the GOP’s Bogus Biden Impeachment Inquiry

In two days the Republican shutdown of the government will go into effect, barring any last minute agreement with the Democrats who are valiantly trying to prevent this economic calamity. But despite the nation being on the edge of a fiscal cliff that will cause serious harm to millions of Americans, Republicans are laser-focused on their baseless impeachment inquiry intended only to smear President Biden.

Fox News, Censorship

The GOP’s inquiry is typically devoid of substance or anything resembling evidence of wrongdoing by the President. That, however, is of no concern to Republicans whose their only interest is partisan political scandal mongering and personal defamation of their Democratic foes. They have even been saying so explicitly since they assumed their razor-thin majority in the House of Representatives…

SEE THIS: New GOP Subcommittee Chair Openly Admits His Only Purpose is to ‘Make Life Hell’ for Democrats

The first inquiry hearing held by James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, further demonstrated how pitifully inept the Republicans are at manufacturing misdeeds. You might think that they would be better at it after all the practice they have had. But no.

Consequently, The Republican Ministry of Disinformation (aka Fox News) is having to cover for them again. During their live broadcast of the Committee’s proceedings, Fox News diligently aired the questions and commentary by Republican members of the Committee. But when it came time for a Democrat to speak, they quickly cut away to offer their biased analysis from the studio. Just as Democratic Rep. Stephen Lynch began to offer a counter argument to the GOP narrative, Fox News host Harris Faulkner interrupted up to say…

“So Republicans are laying out the reasons for this impeachment inquiry as they begin to put together the case made for impeaching in full President Joe Biden. And so this five minutes per lawmaker – there are 47 in the room – period is what they’re on now. After hearing from the witnesses, some of whom you might even recognize.

First of all, if Republicans are “laying out the reasons for this impeachment inquiry” they are doing an abysmal job of it. They have zero evidence to offer and disreputable witnesses to interview. But more to the point, her timing is impeccable as she interrupts the remarks of Rep. Lynch in order to interview ultra-rightist hack, Leo Terrell. This is an old tactic that Fox News also employed during hearings about Trump’s unsavory associations with Russia and his two impeachments. Every time it was a Democrat’s turn to speak, Fox cut away. They also did this to prevent a speech given by Hillary Clinton…

SEE ALSO: Fox News Cuts Off Hillary Clinton So They Can Lie More About Spying on Trump that Never Happened

For the record, what Fox News cut off was Lynch’s grilling of GOP witness, Eileen O’Connor, a staunch Trump-fluffer whose rank partisanship is unparalleled. He noted that in her opening statement she referred to a commentary that she wrote entitled “You would go to prison for what Biden did.” However, she left out that the title and article actually said “what ‘Hunter’ Biden did.” She claimed it was an inadvertent omission, but would you believe a MAGA cultist?

In another part of the hearing, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez asked frequent Fox News legal confabulator, Jonathan Turley, a simple question. “In your testimony today,” she began, “are you presenting any first-hand witness account of crimes committed by the president of the United States?” Turley replied “No, I’m not.” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez asked the same question of the other witnesses who likewise replied “No.” Which begs the question, “What are they even doing there?”

There were many moments when Republicans were humiliated by the lack of evidence or any plausible reason for the hearings. But one moment stood out as Rep. Greg Casar asked “Will members of the oversight committee raise their hands if you believe both Hunter and Trump should be held accountable for any of indictments if convicted?” Every Democrat raised their hand, but not a single Republican did. So apparently the GOP does not believe that the law should apply equally to anyone. Or perhaps that the law should be equally ignored for everyone. Bottom line: They have, in effect, admitted that their hearings are a partisan sham.

HUH? Fox News Can’t Figure Out Why Democrats Support Democrats Over Republicans for President

The bitter and blatantly partisan biases of Fox News have been evident since its inception nearly thirty years ago. But despite the fact that their political prejudices are well known, they still persist in pretending that they are a legitimate journalistic enterprise. They aren’t fooling anyone.

Fox News Sad

Nevertheless, Fox News continues to make believe they’re just like other mainstream media outlets. And that futile effort just becomes more conspicuously preposterous every day. You might think that after three decades of dishonest propaganda, Fox News would have gotten pretty good at it. But that is clearly not the case. Even with their hyperactive coverage of the bogus Biden impeachment inquiry being pushed by the Republicans in the House of Representatives, Fox can’t produce a coherent argument to support their position.

SEE THIS: Fox News and GOP Impeachment Chair Seek ‘Damning Evidence’ Against Biden, But Can’t Find Any

On Monday morning the cast of Fox’s “Outnumbered,” wherein four conservative women and one right-wing man bash President Biden for an hour, did a segment on a recent CNN poll that found 67% of Democrats were open to candidates other than Biden for president. Setting aside their newfound respect for “fake news” CNN, the Foxies found themselves in a quandary regarding the question on Democratic voter preferences. Their confusion manifested in the following exchange between co-host Harris Faulkner and fellow co-host Kayleigh McEnany (who is also Donald Trump’s former press secretary)…

McEnany: What we are seeing in polling is that 67% of Democrats are say they want a different candidate than Joe Biden.
Faulkner: The problem with that are the 33% that actually want Biden. And the 67% aren’t saying that they’ll take, as I like to say, anybody but Biden. They might not take a Republican. And that is the challenge here. Yeah, they might take a Gavin Newsom or a Gretchen Whitmer, we can’t figure out why, but they might over a Republican.”

So Faulkner and her confederates “can’t figure out why” Democratic voters would prefer Democratic candidates for president over Republicans? Let’s see if we can’t help them out a bit, shall we?

To begin with, Democrats are Democrats. That ought to end the debate right there. But Fox News and Republicans are so ideologically isolated, and so far removed from reality, that they can’t imagine anyone supporting the party that has brought more liberty, equality, and prosperity to the United States than any other party.

So let’s give them a little more to chew on. The examples that Faulkner gave as possible Biden alternatives – Gavin Newsom of California and Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan – are two of the most successful and effective governors in America. They could be joined by Josh Shapiro of Pennsylvania, Andy Beshear of Kentucky, Wes Moore of Maryland, and any number of Democrats in other state and federal offices. And that includes Vice-President Kamala Harris. The Democrats have a decidedly deep bench if they need one. Which they don’t, since Biden is running with a record of unprecedented success.

Perhaps the best reason for, not only Democrats but all Americans, to vote for a Democrat is the person currently leading the Republican Party’s primary contest, Donald Trump. The nation certainly doesn’t need a twice-impeached, four-time indicted (on 91 felony counts), ultra-rightist, financially corrupt, Putin-loving, pathological liar, and rapist, who led a violent insurrection to overthrow the government, to be given another opportunity to advance his authoritarian aspirations.

What’s more, the rest of the GOP field (DeSantis, Ramaswamy, Haley, Scott, Pence, etc.) aren’t any better. They are all conservative extremists who oppose the American people on most issues, including abortion, taxes, immigration, guns, climate change, education, etc. They also pledged to support Trump if he is the eventual nominee, even if he is convicted of numerous felonies.

SEE ALSO: GOP Debate Affirms It’s a Pro-Criminal Trump Cult that Wants to Put a Felon in the White House

Yet somehow, the folks on Fox News can’t comprehend why anyone would support Democrats for president or any other office. That’s because the Foxies and GOP politicos don’t really give a damn about America or the American people. They are fixated solely on their quest for power and personal greed. And on that measure, they have many candidates who will satisfy them. So expect Fox News to remain loyal to the greediest, most corrupt, power seeker of them all, Donald Trump. In fact, Fox News is just as culpable for the crimes of Trump as Trump is himself.

Adam Schiff Shames the GOP for its ‘Willingness to Debase Themselves in the Service of Trump’

From its inception, the Cult of Trump has been fueled by a Republican Party that is cowardly or corrupt, or more accurately, both. They were too afraid to hold Trump accountable when they had the opportunity during his two impeachments. And ever since they have remained terrified of invoking his impotent wrath or that of his glassy-eyed disciples.

Donald Trump, Adam Schiff

Consequently, Trump remains the leading candidate for the GOP’s presidential nomination. And most of the other candidates have promised to support him, even if he is convicted of any or all of the 91 felony counts currently pending against him in his four criminal indictments. They are so proud of their fealty to the Party’s mob boss that they made their devotion known on national television.

SEE THIS: GOP Debate Affirms It’s a Pro-Criminal Trump Cult that Wants to Put a Felon in the White House

On Sunday morning Rep. Adam Schiff was interviewed by Jen Psaki on MSNBC. And he had some pertinent points to make about the Republican embrace of purposeful and depraved lawlessness. Psaki approached the discussion with a question about the GOP’s enthusiasm for shutting down the government. She specifically referenced Marjorie Taylor Greene’s utterly inane promise to halt critical federal activities – including Social Security and veterans benefits, law enforcement, financial aid for low income families, etc. – if her colleagues refuse to go along with her obsession to impeach President Biden for no discernible reason…

Psaki: Shutting the government down has implications on the public broadly. What is your reaction to her tying a government shutdown to an impeachment inquiry?
Schiff: It just shows the extreme lengths they’ll go to carry water for Donald Trump. They’ll shut down the government. They’ll do whatever they can to initiate an impeachment of Joe Biden. And part of the motivation here, of course, is to distract from Donald Trump’s multiple indictments. Part of it is to somehow try to dilute the stain of Trump’s impeachments. But the common denominator is just this unswerving, undeniable willingness to debase themselves in the service of Donald Trump. (Emphasis added).

Indeed, debasing themselves has become a routine part of today’s Republican Party. Whether they are defending the violent January 6th insurrectionists, seeking to criminalize abortion, organizing book bannings and beer boycotts, imposing racist restrictions on voting, and as always, kissing Trump’s – let’s just say ring. Schiff then continued…

Schiff: I think that many of them would like to shut down the government anyway. This will just give them further leverage to try to shut down the government, having failed to default on the nation’s credit. Many see this as the next demonstration of their commitment to god knows what. So I fear that we are on a path to government shutdown because there are enough members of the Republican conference who want it, and Kevin McCarthy will do whatever it takes to remain Speaker one more day, or one more week. That’s his sole motivation.

Clearly Kevin McCarthy and the Republican Party has given up entirely on advocating an agenda that has any appeal to the American people. They are wholly focused on slandering Biden and his family over baseless allegations for which their evidence is so thin that even some at Fox News aren’t buying it. Meanwhile they are propping up Dear Leader Trump whose crimes are well documented and mostly affirmed by other Republicans and members of Trump’s staff. All they have left is Trump worship and Biden hatred.

Democrats, on the other hand, are delivering for the American people on matters of great importance, including jobs, reducing drug and healthcare costs, restoring the nation’s infrastructure, supporting abortion rights, mitigating climate change, and defending democracy around the world. It’s a platform that broad majorities of the public support in principle. Democrats just need to better connect the dots between their popular policies and their President. Then let Republicans continue to sabotage their own electoral prospects by clinging to their abhorrent agenda and a soon-to-be convicted criminal candidate.

Fox News Host Praises Trump’s Mugshot as Appealing to Black Voters Because They’re Pro-Criminal

Right-wing media have spent much of this year attacking the “radical leftist thugs” conspiring to destroy Donald Trump by holding him accountable for his multitude of crimes. They regard the four criminal indictments (to date) and the 91 felony counts (so far) as contrived and dismiss them as “election interference,” despite the abundant evidence of Trump’s guilt, provided mostly by Republicans and former Trump staffers. It’s all been a dreadful drain on Trump’s ability to pursue his lavish life of luxury.

Fox News, KKK

Among the most atrocious acts by Democrats, according to the Trump cult, has been their forcing him to pose for mugshots. Of course, that’s a requirement imposed by local law enforcement authorities, not political operatives. However, since Trump’s first mugshot was published, the very same Trumpists have been celebrating it as a boon to Trump’s image and electoral prospects. They insist, falsely, that it is increasing his popularity, and they greedily engage in peddling mugshot merchandise at every opportunity.

SEE THIS: Fox News is AGHAST that Biden Mock Fundraised Off of Trump’s Mugshot, Which Trump Did For Real

On Monday, Fox News host Jesse Watters did a segment on the Trump smugshot that crossed the line from beatification to blatant bigotry. This should come as no surprise considering that Watters replaced Fox’s former Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson. Watters gushed that…

“The Democrats Soviet tactics has alienated their most loyal voting block. The mugshot has breathed new life into the Trump campaign and broadened his appeal to Black Americans. Over the weekend, with the help of mugshot merchandise, the Trump campaign raked in more than $7 million. Today my garbage man told me he’s buying mugshot t-shirts for everyone he knows this Christmas.”

According to Watters, Black Americans idolize anyone who breaks the law and has a mugshot taken. He is implying that they are by nature drawn to criminals. He states this matter-of-factly as if everyone knows that it’s true. Does that mean that they also admire James Earl Ray, and Charles Manson? Watters’ assertion that Black Americans have a knee-jerk appreciation for outlaws is racist on its face.

Watters is also asserting, without evidence, that it is Black people who are shelling out for Trump’s mugshot merch, rather than his rank and file cult followers. And as proof of his offensive political theory, Watters cites his garbage man, who we are supposed to assume is Black, because of course he is. We are also supposed to believe that this wealthy, elitist TV host regularly converses with sanitation workers. But Watters apparently couldn’t find a Black financial analyst or mechanical engineer or oncologist who is gifting Trump mugshot apparel for the holidays.

What’s more, Watters makes a preposterous and factually unsupported statement associating Democrats with “Soviet tactics” that are alienating Black voters. He thinks that by charging Trump with crimes and arresting him, Trump joins the group of minorities who have been discriminated against by racist institutions. Never mind that wealthy white men are actually least often the victims of such prejudice. That fact notwithstanding, Watters believes that Trump’s legal tangles will result in Black voters abandoning Democrats. Not only is there zero evidence of that, but recent polls show that Trump’s criming has caused a general collapse of his support.

SEE ALSO: Post-Mugshot: Trump’s Phony Bravado Falls Apart as Poll Shows Most Americans Say He’s Guilty

Watters isn’t the only Trumpozoid who is certain that his mugshot is a huuuge positive. MSNBC compiled a partial list of others espousing the same idiocy…

“Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo told host Laura Ingraham that… Trump’s arrest gives him ‘cred among a new bloc of voters.'”

“Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield said Thursday that he believes ‘many Black men’ will find Trump’s arrest ‘endearing,'”

“Laura Loomer, a far-right activist [said Trump’s arrest made him] ‘the most relatable man on the ballot for the black community.'”

“Dinesh D’Souza claimed mug shots [made] Trump the ‘ultimate gangsta in our culture'”

For the record, it isn’t Black Americans who embrace felons as political leaders. It’s Republicans. And that isn’t conjecture. They actually admitted it on national television at the recent GOP primary debate where six out of ten candidates proudly committed to supporting Trump if he’s the party’s nominee, even if he is convicted of the pending charges.

RELATED: GOP Debate Affirms It’s a Pro-Criminal Trump Cult that Wants to Put a Felon in the White House

So contrary to Watters’ racist remarks, it is his party – and his network – that favor criminals in politics. Which is convenient since it is his party, and his network, where most of the criminals reside.

Fox News is OUTRAGED at Biden for Raising Taxes on the Wealthy and Spending on Climate Change

The 2024 campaign for the presidency is shaping up to be one of the most contentious in modern times. While neither party has officially chosen their candidates, it appears likely that it will be a rematch between the current President, Joe Biden, and the whining loser, Donald Trump.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Republicans are intent on lowering the character of the political debate to infantile name-calling, and vengeance for the perceived persecution of Dear Leader Trump. They are falling in line with Trump’s campaign slogan, “I am your retribution.” Which they apparently believe is what the American people are clamoring for.

RELATED: LOL: Fox News Defends Trump By Admitting that He’s a Lying, Narcissistic, Anti-Democratic, Loser

Democrats, on the other hand, are preparing to run on Biden’s record of accomplishments that include guiding the nation out of a deadly pandemic, and restoring the economy that was in a shambles after COVID and Trump’s tenure of incompetence and catering to right-wing extremists, corporations, and the 1% upper-crusters.

Fortunately, Republicans and their sycophantic media minions are proving to be among the best surrogates for President Biden’s reelection. Not only are they sabotaging their own prospects by embracing unpopular policies like abortion bans and impeaching Biden and half his Cabinet, but they are also tying themselves inextricably to Trump’s tedious “Big Lie” about election fraud and his obsession with relitigating the 2020 election that resulted in his humiliating defeat.

SEE ALSO: YEAH, RIGHT! Trump Promises an ‘Irrefutable,’ ‘Completely Exonerating’ Report on Election Fraud

On Friday’s episode of Fox News’ “Outnumbered” they offered up some more reasons why the American people should vote for Biden in 2024. They came during a segment wherein Fox contributor “Doctor” Janette Nesheiwat surely thought she was crushing Biden with righteous criticism. She said that…

“I took a look at Bidenomics. I wanted to see what exactly was in it. My takeaway? Higher taxes, especially on the wealthy and corporations, and massive spending especially when it comes to climate change. And then they want to dump more money into COVID? Hello? I saw maybe three or four cases of COVID this entire week. So they’re just spending money, and they’re spending it recklessly.”

OMG! Biden is raising taxes on billionaires, who currently pay little or nothing. And he’s providing funds to mitigate climate change, which is threatening the lives and livelihoods of millions around the country and the world. Impeach him now! Never mind that broad majorities of Americans support these policies.

Nesheiwat went on to complain about spending on COVID, because she has only seen “maybe three or four cases of COVID this entire week.” Keep in mind that she is more of a TV commentator than a practicing physician. Still, she considers her personal observations a valid statistical sample. The CDC, however, using more credible methods, reports COVID hospitalizations of 10,320 for the past week, an increase of 14.3%.

What’s more, the Fox News analysis of Bidenomics couldn’t be more off target. There is ample evidence that Bidenomics is benefiting most Americans and especially the working-class. It is improving the U.S. economy, which is leading the world. The Biden administration is responsible for the nation’s record job growth, restoration of domestic manufacturing, inflation that has been declining for the past twelve consecutive months, expanding healthcare and making it more affordable, and much more. All while reducing the deficit.

So if Fox News wants to complain about Biden making the rich pay their fair share, or saving the environment, let them have at it. It’s reminiscent of a recent episode where GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-QAnon) tried to take a swipe at Democrats, but wound up starring in a Democratic campaign advertisement. The ad replayed video of her complaining about Biden and his…

“…government programs to address education, medical care, urban problems, rural poverty, transportation, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and welfare […] And he still was working on it, the largest public investment in social infrastructure and environmental programs that is actually finishing what FDR started, that LBJ expanded on and Joe Biden is attempting to complete.”

Heaven forbid that Democrats would help Americans with education, healthcare, infrastructure, the environment, and more. Democrats better be careful or they will fall behind on the issues that Republicans are working so hard on, such as banning books, restricting reproductive healthcare, enriching corporations, and suppressing democracy.

Fox and Friends Slobber Over RFK Jr and Mock Democrats for Repudiating Him as a Republican Rat

The legacy of the Kennedy family in America is renowned for producing leaders of great character and compassion. President John Kennedy and his brothers, Robert and Ted, who served in the Senate, stood for equality and fairness across lines of race and class. They were heralds of Democratic values.

Fox News

Unfortunately, every family tree has its bad apples. And in the Kennedy clan that role has come to be filled by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. For much of his political life he has been consumed by crackpot conspiracy theories and distasteful associations with ultra right-wingers who are anathema to Democratic principles. He has become the Republican Party’s favorite anti-Democratic stooge and, more recently, a planted challenger to President Biden for the Democratic nomination for president.

RELATED: The Republican Party’s Desperate Smears of President Biden are Getting Even More Pathetic

Republicans have adopted RFK Jr as one of their own. They use him as a tool to bash Biden, while falsely claiming that his criticisms are evidence of disarray in the Democratic Party. And naturally, Fox News is leading the parade of wingnuttery that is embracing and exploiting him. On Thursday morning’s episode of Fox and Friends, the “Curvy Couch” potatoes demonstrated their adoration of RFK Jr in a segment that was supposed to be about his appearance at hearing held by the Republican-led House Committee on the Weaponization of Government.

The hearing was a typically partisan mess wherein Republicans filibustered with ridiculous attacks on Biden- and even his son Hunter – that had nothing whatsoever to do with the hearing’s purported agenda. It produced no evidence of any alleged wrongdoing. To the contrary, Democrats succeeded in exposing the GOP charlatans for staging yet another political sideshow.

This is where Fox and Friends comes in to try to salvage the farce that chairman Jim Jordan tried to put over on the nation. Although they had very little to work with. So what they ended up presenting was the following slimy suck up…

Brian Kilmeade: The problem with RFK Jr, he does his homework, is extremely bright. You better bring your ‘A’ game. And also, can you believe we are at a day when the Democrats would be calling a Kennedy disparaging names? What country are we in?

As usual, Kilmeade didn’t offer a single example of anything that RFK Jr said that supported his claim that he is “extremely bright.” But in Kilmeade’s defense, there aren’t any examples. Also, the fact that Democrats are willing to criticize members of a revered Democratic family only proves that they are not the sort of cult followers that the Republican devotees of Donald Trump are. If a Democrat does or says something stupid – or steals and lies about classified documents, or sexually assaults women in department stores, or tries to overthrow the government, or is impeached and indicted multiple times – they won’t continue to worship him as their messiah.

Fox Friend Steve Doocy briefly interjected something sensible, noting that “There are Kennedy family members who disagree with him as well.” Which is true. His sister Kerry Kennedy recently said that “His statements do not represent what I believe or what Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights stand for.” And his nephew, Joe Kennedy III said that “My uncle’s comments were hurtful and wrong. I unequivocally condemn what he said.”

Doocy’s colleagues ignored those remarks, then replied with mockery that Democrats correctly describe RFK Jr as “such a Republican.” Whereupon Kilmeade makes sure to note that, despite all the evidence, “He’s not a Republican. Oh my goodness.”

For the record, RFK Jr identifies himself as Democrat. However, virtually all of his supporters reside on the farthest fringes of right-wing Republicanism. They are people like Steve Bannon, who convinced him to enter the Democratic primary. And he proudly poses for pictures with the likes of Russian asset Mike Flynn, and GOP dirty trickster Roger Stone.

That’s who RFK Jr is. You know him by the company he keeps. And Fox News is brazenly participating in the charade that he is bona fide Democrat. Because they desperately need critics who they can claim are not partisan. And because they haven’t got any legitimate complaints about Biden other than pointless and pathetic smears that don’t make any sense. In fact, some of their attacks actually make Biden look so good that he’s now using them in his own campaign ads…

President Biden Trolls Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Hysterically Lame Swipe at Democratic Successes

The spectacle of the Republican Party’s efforts to malign Democrats is spiraling ever deeper into an abyss of pitiful nonsense. Since they have nothing of substance with which to attack President Biden and the Democrats. so they have resorted to humiliating themselves with preposterous rants and fabricated scandals.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, Gun

The fake scandal factory of the GOP has already spent untold hours in hearings wherein they thought they were hammering Democrats, but in which they only managed to dirty themselves with the mud they were throwing.

SEE THIS: The Republican Party’s Desperate Smears of President Biden are Getting Even More Pathetic

On Sunday, the Shadow GOP Speaker, Marjorie Taylor Greene, delivered a speech at the ultra right-wing Turning Point conference. She was surely convinced that her oratory would sink the Democratic Party and President Biden. Unfortunately for her, it had quite the opposite effect. So much so, in fact, that Biden embraced her speech and reposted on Twitter with the retort that said simply “”Caught us. President Biden is working to make life easier for hardworking families.” Greene began by noting the similarities between LBJ and Biden, saying that…

“Lyndon B. Johnson was the majority leader in the Senate. Does that sound familiar? He was Vice President to Kennedy, Joe was Vice President Obama. He was appointed as the president after JFK was assassinated. Then he was elected. His big socialist programs were the Great Society.

“The Great Society were big government programs to address education, medical care, urban problems, rural poverty, transportation, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and welfare, the Office of Economic Opportunity and big labor and labor unions. Now LBJ had the Great Society, but Joe Biden had Build Back Better. And he still was working on it, the largest public investment in social infrastructure and environmental programs, that is actually finishing what FDR started, that LBJ expanded on and Joe Biden is attempting to complete.”

OH NOES!!! What a monster. President Biden is successfully addressing “education, medical care, urban problems, rural poverty, transportation, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and welfare.” Whatever will become of America and her poor, beleaguered people when those problems have been mitigated?

Indeed. Biden has followed in the hallowed footsteps of past Democratic leaders who also sought to improve the lives and everyday Americans. And he is proud of having done so. It is the longtime mission of Democrats to advance the interests of hard-working people and middle-class citizens. As opposed to the mission of Republicans to advance the interests of corporations and the wealthy.

Greene continued with what she regards as failures of the Biden administration, such as $32 trillion of debt, much of which is attributable to Trump. She adds remarks about homelessness, which Republicans have never sought to address, or even pretend to care about. Then she comes to inflation, which has gone down for the last twelve consecutive months.

The speech that Greene disgorged was so ridiculous that the Lincoln Project turned it into a Democratic advertisement. And a damn good one…

Anti-American Fox News Says Democrats Who Move to Red States ‘Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Vote’

No major news network is more obsessed with flaunting their alleged patriotism than Fox News. Virtually every minute of airtime is festooned with flags and other visual and aural manifestations of cliché Americana. Their hosts and guests regurgitate nationalistic rhetoric in a non-stop display of partisan and self-serving jingoism.

Fox News, Constitution

However, this feverish facade of fidelity to the fatherland is wholly disingenuous. The Fox News crowd routinely opposes many of the most basic principles of the nation as enshrined in the Constitution. They recoil from equality, mock freedom of the press, force religious doctrine, and embrace insurrection on behalf of their wannabe dictator, Donald Trump.

On Thursday’s episode of Fox’s “The Five,” the panel engaged in a discussion about a supposed “Red State Boom.” Never mind that it was an invention of their imaginations. Blue states have been financially supporting red states for decades. Nevertheless, the segment asserted that there was some sort of mass migration to red states by disaffected Democrats in blue havens like New York and California.

Greg Gutfeld built on that fallacy to praise the independence of the country’s politically divided states. He made the old, racist argument for “states’ rights.” saying that people can choose which state they want to live in based on the rights available there. But he’s ignoring the fact that Constitutional rights are guaranteed nationally. They are not a smorgasbord that states can pick and choose from. By his logic the U.S. could still have slavery in some states, if that’s what residents of that state wanted.

Gutfeld’s perverse misinterpretation of federalism amounted to a virtual dissolution of the republic. He used the recent Supreme Court ruling reversing Roe v Wade as a positive example of how the several states can decide their own rules, even when they deny long held rights for families to make their own choices. And apparently he hasn’t heard that Republicans in Congress are seeking to nationalize their prohibition of abortion, so that no state can have the free choice that he pretends to be championing.

This led to an exchange that is even more troubling. Charles Hurt of the “Moonie” Washington Times, was disturbed that there are people from blue states moving to red states, and bringing their political opinions with them. But Gutfeld has the solution to that problem…

Hurt: One of the problems, though, with this migration is that all of the — and people talk about — they worry that voters are going to vote the same way when they move to these red states. Another concern is the fact that they’re deadbeat voters. They voted for all of this nonsense in the state they left, and then they leave and they don’t get stuck with the bill.
Gutfeld: They shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
Hurt: They shouldn’t be allowed to vote until they pay back all of the taxes they voted for in California or New York.

First of all, many Republicans have been touting this purported migration to red states as evidence that conservative politics were winning, and that Democrats and Republicans were choosing red states because they were aligned with them ideologically. But Hurt’s nonsensical argument is that Democrats are moving out of blue states so that they can vote for the same policies in their new reddish homes that caused them to leave the blue states in the first place. Seriously?

More importantly, Hurt and Gutfeld and their Fox News confederates think it would be appropriate to prohibit these new red staters from voting based solely on their political opinions. And these are the same Fox News numbskulls who profess to be patriots. Hurt’s suggestion that Democrats be prohibited from voting “until they pay back all of the taxes they voted for in California or New York,” is preposterous and bass ackwards. How about blue states prohibiting Republicans from voting until they pay back all of the tax revenues they mooched from Blue America?

It’s a distinctly unconstitutional, anti-democratic position that permeates the the American right. And this isn’t the first time that they’ve said so. Earlier this year Marjorie Taylor Greene made exactly the same proposal…

So the next time you see the flamboyant flourish of flag-waving on Fox News, recall that their real motivations are more attuned to tyranny and oppression of any dissent from their ultra-right agenda. They not only want Democrats in prosperous blue states to fund the failing red regimes, they want to take away their voting rights as well. And despite the propaganda from Fox News, that’s not America.
