Fox News Fans the Flaming Lie that Biden Sought to Assassinate Trump During Search of Mar-a-Lago

Now that the attorneys in the so-called “Hush Money” trial of Donald Trump (more accurately, the falsifying business records and election interference trial) have rested their cases, the disinformation agents working to exonerate Trump in the court of public opinion are preparing for the potentiality of Trump’s conviction.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Consequently, the MAGA cult operatives are now anxiously deploying en masse to muddy up the discourse with their contrived narratives in order to deflect from the bad news that they seem to anticipate. And they don’t care how preposterous or unbelievable their distractions are. In fact, the more ridiculous the better for purposes of misdirection and evasion. That accounts for absurdities…

SUCH AS THIS: Fox News Floats Conspiracy Theory that Biden is Plotting to Assault Trump to Avoid Debating Him

However, if you think that’s as far as the Trumpists could go, you are vastly underestimating their derangement, and that of those they are trying to reach. On Monday new evidence of Trump’s involvement in stealing and hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago bunker was released.

While the new evidence further incriminates Trump, it also included a more detailed description of the search warrant granted to the FBI to search Trump’s Palm Beach home/hotel. In that description was standard boilerplate language about the possible use of force that exists in virtually every federal search warrant.

But leave it to the Trump cult to focus obsessively on that technicality and try to turn it into a controversy. Their interpretation became that this language was uniquely applied to Trump and amounted to – get this – an intention by Biden to assassinate him. Trump himself commented on this nonsense in a post on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, raving that

“WOW! I just came out of the Biden Witch Hunt Trial in Manhattan, the ‘Icebox,’ and was shown Reports that Crooked Joe Biden’s DOJ, in their Illegal and UnConstitutional Raid of Mar-a-Lago, AUTHORIZED THE FBI TO USE DEADLY (LETHAL) FORCE. NOW WE KNOW, FOR SURE, THAT JOE BIDEN IS A SERIOUS THREAT TO DEMOCRACY. HE IS MENTALLY UNFIT TO HOLD OFFICE — 25TH AMENDMENT!”

Nearly every word of that is an outright lie. Biden had nothing to do with the trial in Manhattan, and it isn’t a “Witch Hunt.” Nor was the search of Mar-a-Lago “Illegal and UnConstitutional.” And none of that would suggest any mental unfitness of Biden, or trigger invoking the 25th Amendment. But when did Trump ever let reality interfere with his rancid yammering?

Likewise, it doesn’t stop his sycophants (e.g. Lauren Boebert, Marjorie Taylor Greene, etc.) from joining in. And for good measure, Trump is already incorporating this malarkey into his fundraising. Unfortunately, his grasp of the English languish is distorting his message…

No one will be surprised to learn that that Fox News is fully on board with the accusations that Biden was plotting to off Trump. For example, Fox’s Senior Trump-Fluffer, Maria Bartiromo, covered the matter by saying that…

“Trump calling out President Biden after learning that his administration authorized the use of deadly force during the FBI’s 2022 raid on Mar-a-Lago during the classified documents probe. According to this filing, the DoJ and the FBI agents planned to bring standard issue weapons, ammunition, handcuffs, and medium and large size bolt cutters.”

To her credit, Bartiromo also read the FBI’s statement that…

“The FBI followed standard protocol in this search as we do for all search warrants, which includes a standard policy statement limiting the use of deadly force. No one ordered additional steps to be taken and there was no departure from the norm in this matter.”

But to her shame, Bartiromo immediately ignored her own reporting to complain that the FBI and the Democrats were calling Trump a threat to democracy, “but Biden is authorizing deadly force against his political opponent?” She knows perfectly well that Biden didn’t do that. She just read the FBI’s statement herself.

Bartiromo wasn’t the only Fox News hack furthering these lies. Jesse Watters did the same on his program, saying that “the Biden administration authorized the ‘use of deadly force’ during the Mar-A-Lago raid,” and that it was “A major bombshell in the Trump documents case.” Actually, it wasn’t. And former Florida Attorney General and Special Advisor to Trump, Pam Bondi, said on Fox & Friends that “Nothing about this is normal.” Actually, it was all normal.

So in order to counter-program the coming verdict in Trump’s “Hush Money” case, Fox News and his cult cronies have manufactured this utterly insane allegation that Biden was plotting to assassinate Trump. Never mind that the search warrant lingo was routine, the FBI behaved appropriately, and Trump wasn’t even there.

UPDATE: The standard “use of force” language was also in search warrants for Biden’s homes. So apparently Biden was also plotting to assassinate – himself?

What makes this extraordinarily ludicrous is that Trump currently has a case pending before the Supreme Court wherein he is claiming to have “presidential immunity,” which doesn’t exist in the law or the Constitution. His attorneys have argued that such immunity would give any president, including Biden, the right to assassinate a political opponent with impunity.

If the Court comes down on Trump’s side (heaven forbid), then he can’t complain if Biden actually does try to kill him. Not that Biden would ever contemplate such a thing. But it’s emblematic of Trump’s thinking that is notoriously devoid of reason.

Wannabe Dictator Trump Declares His Intention to Obstruct Justice and Undermine the Constitution

The campaign by Donald Trump to return to his occupation of the White House is on a runaway track toward tormented dementia. With each new public appearance or posting on his pitifully failing social media scam, Truth Social, he affirms the depths of his psychosis. He’s in a downward spiral and headed for a crash landing.

Donald Trump Tyrant Dictator

On Saturday Trump attended the Republican party’s ironically named “Freedom Summit” at the equally ironically named Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee, Florida. The affair featured several of the candidates for the GOP nomination for president, but like a right-wing rock concert, saved the headliner spot for Trump, who spoke last. And true to form, Trump delivered a depressing and dangerously inflammatory diatribe that only an indoctrinated cult disciple, or a Republican (but I repeat myself), could appreciate.

SEE ALSO: The Desperate and Dystopian Delirium of Donald Trump as He Descends Into Drooling Dementia

The subjects that Trump covered were typical of his tediously repetitive sermonizing. Of course he attacked President Biden as both “Sleepy” and “Crooked,” apparently unable to keep track of which epithets he’s using today. But more troubling were his promises of what he planned to do should he be reelected next year. And the first thing on his agenda is – in his own words – retribution for the perceived persecutions he believes that he is the victim of. And the persecutor he is most fixated on is, naturally, President Biden, whose election he still denies was legitimate. So Trump raged that…

“Everything is a lie. The whole thing is a lie. The whole election was a lie. As president I will be creating a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” to shed sunlight on every dark and rotten corner of Washington, D.C., starting with Biden.”

“Truth” and “reconciliation” are two of the English language words that are least likely to be associated with Trump, who is known for his pathological lying and vengefulness. But what Trump is announcing here is his plan to abuse the power of the presidency to persecute Biden for the crime of having beaten him so decisively in 2020.

Trump went on to boast that he had already engaged in similar abuses of power when he fired FBI Director James Comey and other FBI officials in a blatant attempt to evade the legal consequences of his criminal behavior. Trump bragged that…

“You gotta understand, we were doing a job. I got rid of Comey. I got rid of the FBI top guys. I got rid of them of all. Boy oh boy. If I didn’t, I probably wouldn’t be standing here talking to you, because that was a bad thing they were planning. […] There were bad things planned. And we learned all about them because that was like throwing a rock into a hornet’s nest when I fired that guy.”

To be clear, Trump is publicly confessing to obstruction of justice by terminating law enforcement officials who were investigating his misconduct. Although his pride in having tainted the legal auspices of the executive branch of government is wildly misplaced. He is still going to be held accountable as result of the four pending indictments against him for 91 felony charges – so far.

However, Trump still wasn’t finished incriminating himself. He elaborated on his intentions to pervert justice with a promise to clean house at the Department of Justice and to launch self-serving probes into the federal and state attorneys who are currently prosecuting him. He’s blaming them for his legal problems, despite the fact that they are only prosecuting him for crimes that citizens on grand juries indicted him for. He lashed out saying that…

“We will together restore law and order in our country. We will completely overhaul the DOJ to investigate every Marxist prosecutor in America for their illegal racist-in-the-reverse enforcement of the law.”

Note that three of the prosecutors working on Trump’s cases (Letitia James, Fani Willis, and Alvin Bragg) are Black. So naturally Trump regards this as a racial assault on his superior and unassailable whiteness. He would like nothing more than to be the instigator of a race war in America. In fact, he has an explicit plan to incite hostility and division among the American people. The Washington Post reported on this plan writing that…

“Donald Trump and his allies have begun mapping out specific plans for using the federal government to punish critics and opponents should he win a second term, with the former president naming individuals he wants to investigate or prosecute and his associates drafting plans to potentially invoke the Insurrection Act on his first day in office to allow him to deploy the military against civil demonstrations.”

So Trump is pledging to weaponize both the Justice and Defense Departments against his perceived enemies and, ultimately, all of the American people. Rest assured that he won’t stop there either. He would use the departments of State, Energy, Education, Treasury, Homeland Security, and even Agriculture if he can think of a way. His sole purpose is to exalt himself and reign unchallenged as a tyrannical monarch. And in the process, make those who stood in his way pay for their disloyalty. What’s more, Trump would form alliances with his heroes, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, and Xi Jinping. And he would sell American interests to the highest bidders.

Make no mistake, these are his ambitions. In speeches like the one he gave on Saturday he is telling the world right out loud what he intends to do. And if the American people hope to avoid this nightmare they should listen to him, and vote for every Democrat up and down the ballot, if they hope to preserve democracy and the future of this country. Because that is what’s at stake.

GOP Rep Tells Fox News He Would ‘Probably’ Impeach Biden for – Um – Zero Evidence of Any Crime

The Republican fixation on slandering President Biden is entering a new phase wherein they are publicly advocating to impeach him, while simultaneously admitting that they haven’t got a shred of evidence of any alleged crime. In effect, they are arguing that “We know Biden is guilty because no actual proof exists.”

Fox News, Joe Biden, Fake News

Republicans have been doing their best impressions of “Walking Dead” style zombies in search of Biden’s elusive illegality. They would be better off searching for brains, something they are sorely in need of. In the meantime, they have held numerous hearings that have produced nothing but humiliation for the GOP and their efforts to bring Biden down.

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

Undeterred by the utter absence of facts, GOP politicians and press have pushed their crackpot conspiracy theories to the outer fringes of extremism. On Friday morning, Fox News shill, Harris Faulkner, hosted ultra-MAGA Republican “representative” Andy Biggs, who outlined his entirely baseless reasoning for why Biden should be removed from office…

Faulkner: Would you impeach the sitting President over this if it came to that?
Biggs: Probably, yes, where it sits today. And I’ll tell you why. There are least seven or eight additional indicia that Joe Biden was involved in Hunter Biden’s business. And this provides the quid pro quo. There are tapes purportedly out there, there are seventeen of them which – by the way the number was the FBI redacted originally when I saw the document – but the point is you have a series of different witnesses, whether it’s Rob Walker, where it’s the AUSA, and whether it’s the Zeigler and the other whistleblower, Shapley, who basically said they believe it was Joe Biden that was involved here. And that leads us to move to an impeachment inquiry. And that’s really where the first step is, so you flesh it out a little bit more.

To reiterate the justifications for impeaching Biden, Biggs cited “seven or eight [vague] indicia; tapes purportedly out there [but that no one has seen or heard]; a series of different [and anonymous or disreputable] witnesses; basically said they believe [not what they know or have proof of].” In other words, complete speculation with no factual basis whatsoever. But, sure, impeach the President based on that anyway.

Not wanting to be left out, James Comer, Chair of the House Oversight Committee, visited with that bastion of non-partisan credibility, Ted Cruz, and had the following exchange…

Comer: I think that Joe Biden has been selling access to our enemies for decades.”
Cruz: What’s your basis for that?
Comer: If you study Joe Biden like I have, he’s always been cash-strapped.

To be clear, Comer’s “basis” is not any actual evidence. It’s just his observation that Biden was not among the wealthy members of Congress. If anything, that’s proof that he was not “selling access to our enemies.” If he were, he would have had a lot more money.

Finally, Marjorie Taylor Greene was interviewed on Fox Business Channel by the former Director of the National Economic Council during the Trump Administration, now Fox host, Larry Kudlow. He prefaced his question by proving his political bias, saying that he was “angling for the big fish (i.e. biden).” Then he asked…

Kudlow: Is there any new developments on these audio tapes and this Burisma oligarch who allegedly has them?
Greene: I haven’t heard any new updates on the location of the 17 audio recordings that are legitimate proof that Joe Biden and Hunter Biden both took $5 Million bribes from the oligarch that owns Burisma.

So in Greene’s twisted mind, not having any knowledge of the whereabouts, contents, or even the existence of some alleged tapes is “legitimate proof” that Joe and Hunter Biden took bribes. Which is pretty much the same argument that Bigfoot hunters use to affirm his existence and likely acceptance of bribes.

Much of the most recent speculation about Biden’s supposed misconduct was triggered by the release of an internal FBI form by GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley. The “FD-1023” form contained an agent’s reporting of unverified information from a questionable source. It spun a tale of the CEO of a Ukrainian company, Burisma, who Republicans falsely claim has implicated Biden in a bribery scheme. The GOP resorted to coercing the FBI to provide the confidential document so that they could misrepresent it.

SEE ALSO: McCarthy Threatens FBI Director with Contempt for Not Aiding His Petty Persecution of Biden

However, reality has debunked the GOP’s assertions. In fact, the unnamed source referenced in the document actually refuted the claims by Republican scandal seekers. He reported that he “met Burisma’s CEO once and spoke with him on the phone twice and was unable to ‘provide any further opinion as to the veracity’ of what the CEO claimed.”

So once again, they have nothing but conjecture and their rancid fantasies. What’s more, the release of the form was an inappropriate breach of confidentiality that put the investigation and persons involved at risk. Not that Republicans care about that. They have only one item on their agenda, and it’s something they have literally bragged about…

Fox News is SHOCKED that Biden Blew Off a ‘Stupid Question’ About Bogus Criminal Allegations

This week President Biden held a press conference to promote the progress made by his administration on eliminating the “junk fees” that are often applied to tickets for concerts, travel, and other activities. He achieved this without burdening companies with new regulations. The companies volunteered to reduce the fees and disclose them more prominently.

Fox News, Joe Biden

However, Fox News is incapable of reporting anything positive about Biden or Democrats. So they had to find a way to nitpick the affair in order to cast the President in a negative light. They did this by latching onto a throwaway response to an inane and irrelevant question by a reporter from Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post. “Why did the Ukraine FBI informant file refer to you as the ‘big guy?’ the reporter asked. And Biden replied slyly, “Why did you ask such a dumb question?”

This is a subject that Republicans have been yammering about for weeks. Unfortunately for them, they have zero evidence of any misconduct by Biden. The “informant” they touted has mysteriously disappeared. The audio tapes they claimed to have don’t seem to exist. And the FBI report that they are obsessed with contains only unverified hearsay by a disreputable and biased source.

SEE THIS: HOW CONVENIENT: GOP Oversight Committee Chair Says He Can’t Find His Star Witness Against Biden

Instead of reporting the real news that actually benefits American consumers, Fox chose to go after Biden for supposedly being rude to the reporter who hijacked the press conference with a hostile diversion. On Fox’s “The Five” co-host Dana Perino complained that Biden declined to answer the question. But what did she expect him to say? Did she expect that he would breakdown and confess to the trumped up charges? Or lash out in an incoherent, infantile temper tantrum like Trump?

Had Perino observed Biden’s demeanor throughout his career, she would know that he has a calm and respectful manner. It would be improper and pointless for him to answer such a ridiculous question. Nevertheless, Perino’s comrade, Jeanine Pirro had an even more preposterous take on the matter…

Pirro: First of all, I think it’s rich for Barack Obama, who is the President who created this division between the press and the White House when he started trashing Fox News and conservatives during his time as president.

REALLY? First of all, Obama rarely took shots at the media, even Fox News. When he did it was entirely appropriate and directed at specific instances wherein Fox News was out of line, unprofessional, and brazenly biased. Obama had a generally cordial relationship with the press, as does Biden. And Pirro has apparently forgotten that it was Trump who viciously denigrated the press in Stalinist terms as “the enemy of the people,” and personally insulted reporters – especially Blacks and women – at every opportunity.

SEE TRUMP For More on Creating Divisions Between the White House and the Press

For the record, the allegations that the reporter was hounding Biden about on behalf of his GOP handlers, are allegedly contained in a document that the FBI has already made available to Republicans in Congress. It cannot be disclosed because of an investigation that is currently in progress, and because it contains unverified accounts provided by an unreliable source.

Consequently, Republicans have been making up what they want it to say and repeating their fabrications on right-wing TV programs. The ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, Jamie Raskin, countered that fictional narrative. telling the press that…

Once again Chairman [James} Comer has failed to provide factual evidence to support his wild accusations about the President. He continues to bombard the public with innuendo, misrepresentations, and outright lies, recycling baseless claims from stories that were debunked years ago.”

In the meantime, GOP House Squeaker, Kevin McCarthy, is attempting to bully FBI Director Chris Wray with threats to hold him in contempt of Congress if he refuses to obey. Wray previously advised McCarthy that it would be improper for the FBI to reveal “unverified or incomplete information that could harm investigations, prejudice prosecutions or judicial proceedings, unfairly violate privacy or reputational interests, or create misimpressions in the public.”

But McCarthy and his Republican cohorts couldn’t care less about judicial fairness or legal ethics. And neither does Fox News.

McCarthy Threatens FBI Director with Contempt for Not Aiding His Petty Persecution of Biden

The Republican controlled House of Representatives has rapidly proven that it has no real interest in governing and is utterly unfit to do so. Since assuming the barest of majorities, its concerted efforts to smear Democrats have fallen flat as they held hearings that produced little more than rancid allegations with no basis in reality.

Kevin McCarthy, House Speaker (Squeaker)

Nevertheless, the Republican crusaders continue to pursue their political theatrics with casts of dubious characters as witnesses and fantastical stories as testimony. James Comer, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, leads the GOP’s Bogus Scandal Caucus with ludicrous hearings aimed solely at maligning President Biden and other Democrats.

SEE THIS: HOW CONVENIENT: GOP Oversight Committee Chair Says He Can’t Find His Star Witness Against Biden

On Tuesday House Squeaker Kevin McCarthy visited with his propaganda cohorts on Fox News to complain that FBI Director, Chris Wray, has declined to turn over a document that Comer seeks as part of his Biden persecution. McCarthy falsely insisted that he has jurisdiction over the FBI and demanded that they obey his dictate…

“I personally called Director Wray and told him he needs to send that document. Today is the deadline. So let me not tell just you, let me tell Director Christopher Wray right here, right now. If he misses the deadline today, I am prepared to move contempt charges against him.”

McCarthy threatened Wray and the FBI with contempt of Congress if they don’t comply with his petulant demand, saying that “they are not above the law.” Which is particularly ironic considering that McCarthy himself failed to comply with a congressional subpoena last year that was issued by the Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that Donald Trump incited.

SEE ALSO: HUH? Squeaker McCarthy Admits that He Ignored Subpoenas in His Denial that He Ignored Subpoenas

To no one’s surprise, the FBI told Comer and McCarthy that they would not be providing the document in question. Consequently, Comer announced that his Committee “will now be taking steps to hold FBI Director Wray in contempt of Congress.” And you can bet that Wray is shaking in his boots. His boss, Attorney General Merrick Garland, is not likely to proceed with any legal action against Wray. And that’s not because of politics, but because there is no legal justification for it. For the record, the FBI rejected Comer’s original request weeks ago saying that…

“It is critical to the integrity of the entire criminal justice process and to the fulfillment of our law enforcement duties that FBI avoid revealing information — including unverified or incomplete information — that could harm investigations, prejudice prosecutions or judicial proceedings, unfairly violate privacy or reputational interests, or create misimpressions in the public.”

Wray also previously advised the Committee of “the importance of us protecting sources and methods and ongoing investigations.” And an FBI spokesperson told the Committee that “there are strict Justice Department guidelines about when that information can be provided outside of the FBI.” He further educated the GOP inquisitors that the document they seek (an FD-1023 form) is “used by FBI agents to record unverified reporting from a confidential human source.” He elaborated saying that…

“An FD-1023 form documents information as told to a line FBI agent. Recording the information does not validate the information, establish its credibility, or weigh it against other information known or developed by the FBI. The mere existence of such a document would establish little beyond the fact that a confidential human source provided information and the FBI recorded it. Indeed, the FBI regularly receives information from sources with significant potential biases, motivations, and knowledge, including drug traffickers, members of organized crime, or even terrorists.”

In other words, the GOP’s desired document might just be the dishonest ravings of a partisan player with a political axe to grind. It would be irresponsible to disseminate that information as it could defame others and irreparably damage reputations. Which is precisely why Republicans want it. It is their mission to defame and damage their political foes.

Wray knows that McCarthy and Comer cannot be trusted with unverified reports. They would just exploit them for political purposes. And their whining about not getting the information is brazenly hypocritical. During the course of their congressional hearings they have refused to provide information that would validate their accusations. They won’t even give that information to Democrats on the Committee, in violation of committee rules. Their sole objective is to attack Democrats in order to advance their own electoral prospects in the future. They have even said so explicitly…

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

UPDATE: FBI director Chris Wray agreed to allow access to the FD-1023 form. However, even after doing so, Republicans maintained their threat to find Wray in contempt of Congress.

Trump (and Fox News) FREAK OUT After Durham Report Turns Out to Be Another GOP Nothingburger

Prior to losing his job as Attorney General due to Donald Trump losing his reelection bid to President Biden, Bill Barr appointed a fellow right-wing shill, John Durham, to conduct a contrived investigation of the investigators who proved that Trump had numerous unsavory associations with Russians trying to interfere with the U.S. election. Unlike Durham’s fakery, Trump’s Russian connections are actually very well documented.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump

Now, after four years, and millions of wasted taxpayer dollars, Durham has finally issued his conclusions in a 300 page report that is little more than the sort of ultra-conservative opinions posted by the partisan Republican press. It is more clear than ever that Durham’s mission was to manufacture fake scandals in order to discredit the legitimate investigations into Trump’s myriad criminal activities.

RELATED STORY: HUH? Fox News and Trump AG Bill Barr Defend Durham Debacles as Successfully Exposing Russiagate

In the hours since the Durham report was released, Trump has been desperately trying to shape a wholly false narrative that Durham actually exonerated him. Trump was up until after 2:00am frantically posting 27 hysterical comments on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, claiming vindication. Then he was up at 6:00am to post 24 more.

That’s 51 posts, mostly of links to congressional and media Trump-fluffers. Among them were five videos from Fox News (which he said “sucks” earlier the same day), alleging totally unsupported assertions that the Justice Department and the FBI engaged in “domestic terrorism” and “election fraud,” and should be defunded. So much for the GOP backing law enforcement.

SEE ALSO: Jim Jordan Tells Fox News that He’ll Explore Defunding the Police Due to the Trump Indictment

Among Trump’s frenzied outbursts in response to the Durham Nothingburger were these classic commentaries that are emblematic of his derangement…

“WOW! After extensive research, Special Counsel John Durham concludes the FBI never should have launched the Trump-Russia Probe! In other words, the American Public was scammed, just as it is being scammed right now by those who don’t want to see GREATNESS for AMERICA! “

“The Durham Report spells out in great detail the Democrat Hoax that was perpetrated upon me and the American people. This is 2020 Presidential Election Fraud, just like ‘stuffing’ the ballot boxes, only more so. This totally illegal act had a huge impact on the Election. With an honest Media, we are looking at the Crime of the Century!”

“JACK SMITH AND THE SPECIAL PERSECUTORS OFFICE ARE PLAYING THE SAME GAMES WITH ELECTION INTERFERENCE AND FAKE PROSECUTIONS AS JAMES COMEY, ONLY FAR MORE OBVIOUS. THE DOJ MUST END THIS CHARADE RIGHT NOW, AND THAT GOES TO THEIR USE OF D.A.’s & A.G’s IN ATLANTA & NEW YORK. MAGA!!!”

“THEY ARE SCUM, LIKE COCKROACHES ALL OVER WASHINGTON, D.C. Congratulations to John Durham on a Report that is being praised for its quality, importance, and professionalism, by friend and foe alike!”

Trump’s feeble attempt to connect the Durham report to the special counsel probe by Jack Smith, and the ongoing investigations of his criminal activities by prosecutors in Atlanta and New York, is particularly comical. Those investigations – that are examining Trump’s financial fraud, his election interference, the January 6th insurrection, and his theft and hoarding of classified documents – are getting closer to producing indictments than Durham ever dreamed. And they are driving him crazy(er).

SEE THIS: Trump Warns of ‘Death and Destruction’ if He is Indicted for Crimes that He Actually Committed

FOR THE RECORD: Donald Trump and his Republican Party cult claimed for years that Durham would expose the “Crime of the Century” and finally prove that the investigations of Trump were a “hoax.” They insisted that Durham would secure convictions of everyone from Hillary Clinton, to Barack Obama, to James Comey, and the rest of the evil Democratic cabal that they imagined were conspiring against Dear Leader Trump.

The crux of the conclusions by Durham state simply that “the [Justice] Department and the FBI failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law.” But Durham also noted that his own report, “does not recommend any wholesale changes in the guidelines and policies that the Department and the FBI now have in place to ensure proper conduct and accountability in how counterintelligence activities are carried out.” So what exactly was the point?

The only two cases that Durham brought to trial were low-level politicos, and resulted in acquittals for both. Contrast that with the probe by special counsel Robert Mueller that took only 22 months and resulted in 34 indictments and eight convictions, including some MAGA big shots like Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Rick Gates, and Michael Cohen, along with numerous Russian confederates.

What’s more, in 2019, the Senate Intelligence Committee, which at the time had a Republican chairman, produced a bipartisan report that came to very different conclusion than Durham, saying that…

“The Trump campaign’s interactions with Russian intelligence services during the 2016 presidential election posed a “grave” counterintelligence threat […] it detailed how associates of Donald Trump had regular contact with Russians and expected to benefit from the Kremlin’s help.”

Of course, nothing in Trump’s tantrums bear any resemblance to reality. Durham couldn’t even support his own conclusions with facts that would warrant indictments or corrective actions. No one but Trump’s sycophantic cultists praise the report for its quality. But that won’t stop Trump, Fox News, and other propaganda peddlers from pushing their factless views and outright lies.

Trump Jr Conjures Up Crazy Conspiracy Theory that Democrats Planted Pipe Bombs on January 6th

Proving the old mixed metaphor of the bad apple that doesn’t fall far from the crime family tree, the namesake spawn of Donald Trump, Donnie Jr, posted a video that promulgated some of the most preposterous crackpottery available on these here Internets.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump Jr

Little Don seemed proud of himself for having made an observation about the January 6th insurrection that his father incited, that others must have missed. He recalled that there were news reports at the time that pipe bombs were found the same day at the offices of the Democratic and Republican National Committees. And what intrigued Little Don was that those stories were not still at the top of the news. So he fired up his webcam, and his constantly air-quoting fingers (a notoriously fidgety feature of his video persona), and commenced reporting his “bombshell” story.

“They had the insurrection narrative. You notice how the the bombers at the DNC and at the RNC, the guy that left pipe bombs there, just sort of disappeared from the news. It’s like, you know what? In case there wasn’t an insurrection or there wasn’t something bad at the Capitol, they had that to fall back on to continue and perpetuate the evil narrative of what was going on that day.

“But since they were able to ‘coreate’ and apparently manipulate footage over that day, as well as just have enough, you know, outrage, cycle and run with it. We can forget about the bomber. We don’t really need that anymore. That was just sort of the backup plan if there wasn’t enough insurrection created in my mind. That seems to be what has to have been done here.”

Trump is shocked that a story about a tangential detail from an event that occurred over two years ago doesn’t still lead every news broadcast. And, in his mind, that is evidence of a nefarious conspiracy of some sort, by a mysterious cabal identified only as “they.” For the record, the story was recently revisited in January of this year when the FBI increased the reward being offered for the perpetrator. Which debunks the allegations by Trump and Fox News fabulists like Tucker Carlson that it was the FBI that orchestrated the Capitol riots.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson Insanely Accuses the FBI of Orchestrating Trump’s Capitol Insurrection

Little Don replaces what he calls the “insurrection narrative” with his own narrative that is based on figments of his warped imagination. He posits a plot wherein “they” “had that to fall back on […] in case there wasn’t an insurrection” So he’s also asserting that deadly violence at the Capitol was part of the dastardly plan. Then he concludes that the harm done by the “manufactured” insurrection was sufficient that “they” were able to “coreate” (whatever that means) just enough outrage that they no longer needed the pipe bomber story.

What a brilliantly evil plan. And one that requires no proof whatsoever for Trump or the glassy-eyed cultists who subscribe to his video channel. It even connects to daddy Trump’s wild claims from last year when he told MAGA-naut Candace Owens that…

“A lot of people are being treated very unfairly. This should never happen in our country or any country, what happened to them. Especially when you look at the way the so-called other side is treated. But this pipe bomber or bombers – who knows if it was a pipe? Who knows what it was? They never found him? I’ve seen pictures of him and very clear pictures.”

See? It must have been the FBI. Never mind that the FBI wouldn’t be offering half a million dollars to capture their own agent. Or that blurry photos of a masked man were the only ones that the FBI released. So who knows what Trump was looking at? Fortunately for the Trumps, evidence – or even a marginal attachment to reality – is not required to convince the MAGA cult.

AMERICA FIRST? Trump Reiterates His Enduring Trust for Putin Over American Intelligence Pros

It’s another Monday morning, and another day for Donald Trump to babble incoherently about whatever mind worm burrowed into his melon-head upon awakening in his Mar-a-Lago bunker. On this particular morning Trump awoke with memories of one of his most despicably anti-American episodes.

Donald Trump Vladimir Putin

In July of 2018, Trump held a press conference following a summit with his idol and mentor, Vladimir Putin. At one point a reporter asked Trump if he believed Putin’s denials that he had engaged in election interference during the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump replied that his own national security team told that “they think it’s Russia,” but agreeing with Putin said that “I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

RELATED: Donald Trump’s Own Words at the Treason Summit with Putin Are Dripping with His Guilt

For some unexplained reason, Trump brought up that press conference in a new post on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. Trump whined

“Remember in Helsinki when a 3rd rate reporter asked me, essentially, who I trusted more, President Putin of Russia, or our ‘Intelligence’ lowlifes. My instinct at the time was that we had really bad people in the form of James Comey, McCabe (whose wife was being helped out by Crooked Hillary while Crooked was under investigation!), Brennan, Peter Strzok (whose wife is at the SEC) & his lover, Lisa Page. Now add McGonigal & other slime to the list. Who would you choose, Putin or these Misfits?”

Yes, Don, we remember. How could we forget when a president of the United States took the side of a dictatorial leader of a hostile foreign nation against our own intelligence professionals?

Trump’s posting was nothing more than another one of his tedious grievances aimed a bunch of people that he perceives as enemies. He still has no evidence that any of them acted in any way to harm him or his campaign. In fact, former FBI director James Comey may have been the single person most to blame for Trump winning the election due to his irresponsible release of derogatory and false allegations against Hillary Clinton. And [Charles] McGonigal was an associate of Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman and convicted felon who Trump pardoned.

Without any obvious trigger for this outburst, it is likely that Trump is just lashing out at the FBI because he’s scared witless about the investigations that are currently in progress. He is subject to probes related to his criminal actions prior to, during, and after the January 6th insurrection. He’s also being invested for his theft and hoarding of classified documents. And then there is the probe looking into his election interference and obstruction of justice, related to his intimidation of Georgia officials. And there is also a New York Grand Jury that has already indicted him for financial and tax fraud.

All in all, this – or any – morning can’t be too pleasant for the twice-impeached former reality TV game show host. And he isn’t even pretending to hide his anxieties. In the rabid flurry of 27 posts Monday morning – including 9 by a proud QAnon crackpot – one of them complained about his being held legally accountable for his crimes. And in that comment he favorably likened himself to mob boss, Al Capone:

“I believe that I have more lawyers working for me on this Corrupt Law Enforcement induced Bull…. than any human being in the history of our Country, including even the late great gangster, Alphonse Capone!”

At least Trump is now owning the community in which he chooses to live, and the comrades that he admires. You just have to wonder where on his list of Deplorables he ranks Capone, as compared to Putin.

Trump and His GOP Toadies Furiously Spin Bogus Nothingburger Story About Biden Documents

The latest outrage by Donald Trump has taken off with the news that a handful of classified documents were found at an office that President Biden used prior to running for president. Of course, all classified documents should be handled properly and not doing so is cause for concern. However, Trump is in a veritable frenzy, mistakenly thinking he has caught Biden in a juicy and hypocritical something-or-other-gate.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

Throughout the day on Monday Trump dropped a dozen posts on the subject of the Biden documents on his pitifully floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. They were incrementally more preposterous as he proceeded. Which is hard to believe considering the way this all started when the FBI raided Trump’s Mar-a-Lago bunker.

RELATED: Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Bunker Has Been Raided by the FBI, and His Reaction is Predictably Bonkers

Trump began his Monday mania with a comment that alleged as fact a bunch of pure bullpucky. He wrote

“When is the FBI going to raid the many homes of Joe Biden, perhaps even the White House? These documents were definitely not declassified.”

That was followed by several affirmations from his flunkies in Congress who were typically aligned with Trump’s deliberate deceit. They included Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ronny Jackson, and Andy Biggs, who all claimed, without evidence, that Biden “stole classified documents” and had no power to declassify them. Greene went even further to malign the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) as “communists” who must be held accountable.

But this doesn’t stop there. Trump went on to dispense crackpot conspiracy theories about China financing the Biden office and subsequently gaining access to the documents. He ranted that…

“Wow! The Biden Think Tank is funded by CHINA!!! Also, a V.P. cannot Declassify documents, which are covered by the Federal Records Act, which is Criminal and MUCH TOUGHER than the Presidential Records Act, which is NOT Criminal. A President, me, can Declassify. ?How much more information has China been given?”

And that

“The amount was 54 Million Dollars that the Biden Think Tank received from China. That’s a lot of money. They saw the Classified Documents!”

Trump linked to an article in Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post as supposed proof of these churlish charges. While the article did note that the the University of Pennsylvania had received millions of dollars, it never linked those donations to the Biden office. It is common for universities to receive donations from many sources, including corporate sponsors an alumni. However, even in the Post’s article it was revealed that…

“A University of Pennsylvania spokesman denied any anonymous Chinese money had gone to the center. ‘The Penn Biden Center has never solicited or received any gifts from any Chinese or other foreign entity. In fact, the University has never solicited any gifts for the Center,’ [University spokesman] Stephen MacCarthy said.”

BACKGROUND:

According to reports, the half dozen or so documents in question were found in a private, secure office at the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Biden Center. Biden didn’t know that the documents were there and they were likely taken inadvertently. They were discovered by Biden’s legal team who, unlike Trump, did the right thing. They immediately notified the National Archives who took custody of them. Then Attorney General Merrick Garland assigned a Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney to investigate further and, instead of whining and accusing the FBI of conducting a “witch hunt” like Trump, Biden and his staff cooperated fully.

Compare that to the hundreds of classified documents deliberately taken and hoarded by Trump at his publicly accessible Mar-a-Lago hotel/home. His response to inquiries were flagrant lies, telling the FBI that he had no such documents. Then, after the FBI discovered that there were more documents, Trump defied a subpoena to return them. He refused to cooperate with NARA and the DoJ, obstructing justice and falsely insisting that the documents were declassified with his mind and that they belonged to him.

Trump and his Republican spinmeisters are now outraged that there haven’t been raids on all of Biden’s properties, including the White House. But that’s only because the Biden team has been cooperative, so there has been no need for subpoenas or subsequent FBI search warrants. Also, how do they know that President Obama hadn’t previously declassified the documents with his mind? And what exactly do they think they would find if they raided the White House? Classified documents are permitted there.

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

Trump and the GOP are only exploiting this news because they think that it will vindicate him for his own legal dilemmas. But if Trump now claims that the presence of these documents at a Biden office is a criminal act, isn’t he confessing that he is a criminal? And since the charges against Trump are valid, but those he’s making against Biden are bogus, it’s clear that he should be held accountable. And the sooner the better.

Is Trump’s Rabid Rant Accusing the FBI of ‘Changing the Election Results’ Proof He’s Nuts?

The mental state of Donald Trump has been questionable for decades. He has been diagnosed by professionals as a malignant narcissist with sociopathic tendencies. He is a pathological liar. He has delusions of grandeur so extreme that he views himself as the sole savior of America and the world.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

This messianic psychosis is evident in everything Trump does and says, particularly when referring to himself. That is hardly the behavior of a “very stable genius.” It is a neurosis that poses great risks to America’s future should he be elevated again to any position of power. And the sanity and patriotism of anyone who would vote for him should be similarly regarded as deranged. Especially after Trump recently dined with a couple of unabashed Hitler lovers and called for the “termination” of the U.S. Constitution.

RELATED: Trump Literally Calls for Termination of the Constitution and FREAKS OUT Over Bogus Fox News Story

Trump’s deteriorating psychological sickness continues to be displayed in a disturbingly public manner on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, where he posts daily evidence of his mania. More often than not, Trump is in a rage over his having lost the 2020 presidential election, and is consumed by wholly unfounded fantasies that the the election was “rigged and stolen” from him.

That was the topic once again on Friday as Trump unleashed a barrage of pseudo-tweets lamenting what he said was a “massive campaign fraud in the 2020 Election.” And true to form, his tirade was littered with lies. He began

“The FBI has just confirmed that it has paid MILLIONS OF DOLLARS to Twitter, … but what they didn’t say was that it was for the purpose of changing the Election results, pushing Biden over ‘Trump.’ Wow!”

The reason that the FBI didn’t say anything about purposefully “changing the Election results” to hurt “Trump” (which for some inexplicable reason he puts in quotes) might have been because that never happened. What Trump is referring to in his badly deviated perception of reality is a disclosure in some recently revealed emails between Twitter staffers that acknowledged receipt of payment by the FBI for work they did to supply the agency with information that it requested. It was a routine and legally mandated payment that Trump, Elon Musk, and Fox News distorted as a political stunt to discredit the FBI.

RELATED: Fox News Spreads Blatant Lie that the ‘FBI Paid $3.5M To Suppress Hunter Laptop Story’

Notice that Trump has wildly elaborated on the lies exhorted by Musk and Fox News. What began as false allegations that the FBI paid to suppress a bogus story that was tied to a Russian disinformation campaign, Trump turned into a plot to change the election results. That was Trump’s invention and was never even asserted in the “Twitter Files” document dump. But Trump was just getting started. He went on to whine that

“The FBI used Twitter and Facebook to bludgeon the 2020 Election to Biden. Nothing Negative could be said about him, especially as it related to Hunter’s Laptop From Hell, and ONLY Negative could be said about me. They were illegally after ‘Trump’ at a level of ferocity, hate and yes, desperation, that has never been seen in our Country before. Other Media companies were involved also. The change in the Election was Complete & Total, with Millions of votes switched, at least 17%. TRUMP WON, BIG!”

As usual Trump, in his hyperbolic hysteria, characterizes all of his bizarre claims as atrocities that have “never been seen in our Country before.” And he is, as always, the whining target of unending paranoid “ferocity [and] hate.” Here he escalates his baseless accusation to assert that “Millions of votes switched,” and comes up with a figure of 17% that he pulled straight of his asinine imagination. From there Trump launches into an all-caps harangue saying that

“SO, WE CAUGHT THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, THROUGH THE USE OF THE FBI & OTHER AGENCIES, CONCLUSIVELY & IRREFUTABLY CHEATING ON THE 2020 Presidential Election, AND COMPLETELY & ILLEGALLY CHANGING ITS RESULT.”

Needless to say, no one was “CAUGHT” and no “CHEATING” was proved “CONCLUSIVELY & IRREFUTABLY.” Trump has had more than two years and sixty court cases to provide such proof, but neither he nor his legal toadies have ever managed to produce a shred of it. Trump closed this Trumper Tantrum reiterating the lie that

“The Government of the United States changed our Election Result, and it just doesn’t get any worse than that. Just look at the damage that’s been done to our Country, and the World, in the last two years — It’s incalculable. TRUMP WON!!!”

It’s worth remembering that the FBI that Trump is accusing of switching votes was run by his hand-picked director, Chris Wray, who reported to his hand-picked Attorney General, Bill Barr. And if we are to believe Trump’s crackpot conspiracy theorizing, we also need to acknowledge that all of it happened while he was occupying the White House, but was either ignorant of the corruption in his administration, or incapable of handling it. Why would even Republicans want that kind of incompetent in charge of anything again?
