FINALLY: Trump Admits that January 6th Was an Insurrection, But Blames it on Nancy Pelosi

The many trials and tribulations of Donald Trump are continuing to unfold with a near constant narrative by Trump himself. With each new development there is another anxious and incoherent outburst by Trump as he struggles desperately to avoid accountability for his criminal activities.

Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi

On Thursday the Supreme Court heard arguments pertaining the Colorado case wherein the state’s high court ruled that Trump is ineligible to run for president according to state law and the Constitution’s 14th Amendment. Even though Trump’s arguments countering that ruling, and a similar one in Maine, are laughably weak, the ultra-conservative majority on the Supreme Court are likely to side with Trump.

Trump didn’t bother to attend the hearing, but he was watching from Mar-a-Lago. And as usual, he took the opportunity to exploit the media buzz and deliver a post-hearing message to the press. All of the cable news networks took Trump’s remarks when he began what was supposed to be his reaction to the Supreme Court proceedings. But true to form, Trump was only interested in talking about himself. Rather than address the matter at hand, he just started rattling off the same tedious talking points that he disgorges at his cult rallies.

Since Trump’s yammering was purely self-serving campaign rhetoric that had nothing whatsoever to do with the hearing, CNN and MSNBC made the journalistically responsible decision to cut away. However, his Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News, let him ramble on about imaginary “election interference,” and how he is allegedly “leading in every poll,” and his ludicrous claims that we “wouldn’t have had any of the problems that we have today” (i.e. Ukraine, Gaza, inflation, crime), if he had been reelected.

Among the more preposterous of his post-hearing positions was one that is also a remarkable contradiction of everything he has said previously about the January 6th insurrection that he incited. He has long insisted that it was nothing more than peaceful protest by patriots who were upset that the 2020 election was “rigged and stolen” from him.

Of course the entire world witnessed live the violence of the StormTrumpers as they sought to obstruct Congress from carrying out its constitutional duty to certify the election and President Biden’s victory. Trump not only instigated the violence, he told the rioters that he understood why they were rioting and that he loved them. However, in his post-hearing remarks he finally admitted what everyone else already knew. He confessed that “I think it was an insurrection,” but with the added caveat, “caused by Nancy Pelosi.”

So now Trump is conceding that what occurred on January 6th was, in fact, an insurrection. That’s a stark departure from his prior characterizations of the assault. Although his attempt to blame it on Nancy Pelosi is both dishonest and disgusting. Pelosi was a target of Trump’s MAGA mercenaries who attacked the seat of American democracy at his direction that day. They literally chanted “Where’s Nancy?” as they stampeded through the halls of Congress.

Trump has repeatedly lied that he had offered Pelosi 10,000 National Guard troops to defend the Capitol. He did so just a couple of weeks ago in a speech where he also mistook Nikki Haley for Pelosi. The claim of that offer has been debunked many times. But it is also a peculiar claim since he’s asserting that his own followers are so dangerous that thousands of soldiers were needed to quell them.

At this stage of the game, no rational person expects Trump’s blather to be anything but nonsense and lies. But it is refreshing to hear him occasionally serve up comments that actually incriminate him further as he tries to slither out from under the avalanche of evidence of his treachery. And this admission that January 6th was indeed an insurrection will delight the prosecutors who are still collecting evidence of his crimes.

Dementia J. Trump Confuses Nancy Pelosi and Nikki Haley In a Lie-Riddled Rant About January 6th

The signs of the cognitive decline of Donald Trump simply cannot be ignored. He is not merely forgetting names and places. He is recounting hallucinations and inventing bizarre and fantastical distortions of reality. It is decidedly abnormal to repeatedly insist that windmills kill whales, that hurricanes can be nuked, that bleach injections cure COVID, and that George Washington’s Army took over airports.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

Someone with that sort of warped perspective of the world cannot be permitted to occupy any seat of power or influence. The potential for harm to the people of the nation – and the world – is far too great. And yet, Trump is still the leading candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination for president of the United States. And he remains the choice of Fox News to lead the nation that he regards “failing” and “going to hell.” Is this walking conveyor of catastrophe and hatred really the best they can do?

SEE THIS: HUH? Fox News Accuses Democrats of ‘Demonizing’ Trump’s ‘Crazy,’ ‘Deplorable,’ MAGA Extremists

On Friday Trump demonstrated once again the depths of his dementia. During a speech at a New Hampshire GOP primary campaign stop, Trump reprised his pitifully incoherent excuses for having provoked and prolonged the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. He continues to disclaim any responsibility for the riots that he incited and that even Republicans in Congress agreed at the time were the result of his instigation beforehand, and neglect during and after. He told the audience of glassy-eyed Trump cult followers that…

“By the way, they never report the crowd on January 6th. You know Nikki Haley, Nikki Haley, Nikki Haley… Did you know they destroyed all of the information – all the evidence, everything – deleted and destroyed all of it, because of lots of things. Like Nikki Haley is in charge of security. We offered her 10,000 people, soldiers, National Guard, whatever they want. They turned it down. They don’t want to talk about that.”

There’s an abundance of derp in that brief comment that needs to be examined. Let’s start with the fact that the crowd size has been reported, but who cares? It has no relevance to anything else that happened that day. It’s just Trump reaching out to polish his own ego.

Trump then makes a profoundly disturbing blunder, confusing his Republican primary opponent, and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, with former Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi. And it wasn’t a one-off gaffe. He did it repeatedly. These women have nothing in common that a sane person would mistake. Trump has simply lost his ability to process reality.

However, what is even more troubling than his crippled capacity to recall people that he ought to know well, is his twisted tales of past events wherein he was a principal participant. For starters, none of the evidence assembled by the House January 6th Committee was destroyed. He likely built this falsehood from wholly dishonest “reporting” by Jesse Watters on Fox News. Shortly after that program Trump posted a comment on his failing social media scam, Truth Social, alleging that…

“[T]he Unselect January 6th Committee of Political Hacks and Thugs has illegally destroyed their Records and Documents. This is unthinkable, and the Fake Political Indictment against me must be immediately withdrawn.”

In fact, the January 6th Committee chairman, Benny Thompson, refuted claims that any evidence was destroyed saying that the Committee had fully complied with “guidance from the Office of the Clerk and other authorities” as to preserving and archiving documents. Only “temporary” records that were not part of the Committee’s probe were not preserved. Everything else was saved and is available online.

SEE ALSO: Trump Demands Indictments Be Withdrawn After Fox News Falsely Reports on January 6th Committee

Likewise, Trump’s claim that Nikki Haley – or was it Nancy Pelosi – turned down an offer of 10,000 National Guard soldiers was provably untrue. Trump didn’t make that offer to either of them, and that claim has been repeatedly debunked by his own Defense Department appointees. Although, the fact that he keeps making that claim is an admission that he believed his supporters were a dangerous mob. What’s more, there was nothing stopping Trump from deploying the National Guard himself to restore order and protect the Capitol. It was his responsibility, but he did nothing.

So Trump is not only mentally deficient, he is a pathological liar. And the MAGA-infected GOP still wants to put him charge of the government that he has already proven that he is incapable of running. Which only affirms the conclusion that they are a cult with a death wish. And come November, the rest of the American people need to make certain that the crazies and deplorables don’t regain access to power.

Fox News Had Their Fee-Fees Hurt Because President Biden Told the Truth About Them

On the eve of the third anniversary of the January 6th insurrection incited by Donald Trump, President Biden delivered a speech that recalled the horrific and deadly storming of the United States Capitol by traitors intent on exalting Dear Leader and obstructing the peaceful transfer of power that has been emblematic of America’s two and half centuries of democracy.

Dark Biden, Fox News

Biden’s speech (watch in full here, or read transcript here) was both a warning of the fragility of our nation’s freedoms, and a tribute to its resilience. The overarching message of the speech was one of hope and inspiration to persevere on behalf of the principles endowed to us by our founders. It was a far cry from the rancid anger, bitterness, and vengeful self-adoration of Trump’s remembrances of the day.

SEE THIS: Trump’s Uber-MAGA 2024 Campaign Message Reeks of the 3rd Reich Rhetoric of the ‘Final Battle’

Naturally, the reaction from Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda, aka Fox News, was a perverse distortion of reality. Immediately following the address, Fox’s alleged “news” anchor, Martha MacCallum, offered her decidedly biased opinion of the speech and of Biden himself. Which we’ll get to shortly. But first it is important to note that MacCallum couldn’t get through her commentary without defending Fox News from a brief mention that Biden made about the network (video below). She complained that…

“He took a couple potshots at this network, which more people in America watch than any other network in the country. So I don’t know if they feel like that represents someone who is president to all of America. So in those sections not a terribly unifying or reaching out speech here.”

First of all, Fox News is not watched by more people in America than any other network. All three broadcast networks have more viewers than Fox. And the only reason that Fox News tops the list of cable news networks is because it is has an effective monopoly on the conservative audience, while all of the other networks divide the remaining viewers.

More to the point, MacCallum’s assertion that criticism of Fox News means that Biden isn’t “president to all of America” is preposterous. Fox’s approximately three million primetime viewers are less than 1% of the nation’s population. And no political leader should feel compelled to “unify” with a small television audience comprised of extremists who believe lies so flagrant that the network settled a defamation lawsuit for 3/4 of a billion dollars for deliberately lying.

SEE ALSO: The Fox News 3/4 Billion Dollar Dominion Defamation Settlement is Also a Judgment Against Trump

For the record, the “potshots” that Biden took at Fox News were accurate and well deserved. He noted correctly that “Fox News agreed to pay a record $787 million for the lies they told about voter fraud.” He further said that…

“When the attack on January 6th happened, there was no doubt about the truth. At the time, even Republican members of Congress and Fox News commentators publicly and privately condemned the attack. […] now these MAGA voices who know the truth about Trump on January 6th have abandoned the truth and abandoned democracy. They made their choice. Now the rest of us — Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans — we have to make our choice.”

Apparently Fox News regards the accurate reporting of what was actually said on the network as a “potshot.” And they are also dismayed by the factual observation that the network flip-flopped on their original analysis of the violent insurrection.

As for MacCallum’s views about the Biden speech, she was singularly focused on what she believed was Biden’s failure to unify with MAGA Republicans. As if adopting the opinions of crackpots who think he is a senile communist is an obligation that he must comply with, lest he be deemed divisive. She said that…

“He talked about how he would be President to all Americans. Which is certainly what he said when he ran, and certainly what he said in the inaugural. But based on the polling we see it’s not how a lot of Americans feel. He went a few times after what he called MAGA Americans, scowling at that entire group of people who make up – I don’t know if MAGA Americans take up half the country, but you’ve got a lot of people who don’t support this President in that.”

Based on her remarks, you have to wonder if MacCallum actually watched Biden’s speech. His references to MAGA were brief and always aimed at extremists, not ordinary Republicans, to the extent that any still exist. Here are the four actual references that Biden made to MAGA in the speech…

  • “Outside, gallows were erected as the MAGA crowd chanted, ‘Hang Mike Pence.'”
  • “In desperation and weakness, Trump and his MAGA followers went after election officials who…were doing their jobs as elected workers until Donald Trump and his MAGA followers targeted and threatened them.”
  • “Trump and his MAGA supporters not only embrace political violence, but they laugh about it. At his rally, he jokes about an intruder, whipped up by the Big Trump Lie, taking a hammer to Paul Pelosi’s skull and echoing the very same words used on January 6th: ‘Where’s Nancy?'”
  • “I promise you, I will not let Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans force us to walk away now.”

Are those MAGAs really the sort of people that MacCallum thinks Biden should reach out to and unify with? She obviously missed the part of his speech where he inclusively implored that “Now the rest of us — Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans — we have to make our choice.” Of course, it isn’t her objective, or that of Fox News, to honestly report on anything Biden does or says. But after all this time you might think that they would be better at it than this.

Fox News Complains that Maine Disqualifying Trump is Invalid Because – the Constitution is Old?

This week the state of Maine joined Colorado in finding that the Constitution’s 14th Amendment prohibits Donald Trump from running for president. Section Three of the Amendment states that “No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion.”

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Constitution

The language of the Amendment is clear and justifies declaring Trump ineligible to have his name on state primary ballots due to his documented participation in the insurrection in Washington, D.C., on January 6th, 2021. While the courts will continue to debate this matter, there is no question that Trump incited and supported the insurrection and the insurrectionists. He has said so himself, repeatedly.

SEE THIS: Scaredy Trump Praises Convicted Seditionists as Patriots, Maligns American Justice as Gestapo

Naturally, the MAGA Ministry of Propaganda, aka Fox News, is providing aid and comfort to Trump as he pursues his anti-American mission to install himself as America’s first dictator. In Friday morning’s episode of “Outnumbered,” guest co-host Cheryl Casone, a Fox Business anchor, shoveled a fresh heap of manure unto the pile with her denunciation of Maine’s Secretary of State, Shenna Bellows. It was Bellows who made the decision to nix Trump in compliance with the duties of her office and the Constitution. But Casone was appalled that Bellows used the pronoun “I” in her statement…

“I think it’s arrogant and it’s her. If you look at the statement that she put out, that she filed this motion and she’s defending her position, she says [emphasizing “I”] ‘I conclude that Mr. Trump used a false narrative of election fraud. I likewise conclude that Mr. Trump was aware of the likelihood for violence and at least initially supported its use.’ I mean, this is all about her. She’s out of her league, out of her lane.”

Apparently Casone couldn’t come up with a coherent legal argument to rebut Bellows, so she criticized her use of pronouns. Which is ironic considering how fervently Fox News and the MAGA cult have opposed what they regard as the “woke” culture that focuses too much on pronoun use. Bellows is the state official responsible for making this decision and she said so. Did Casone think that she should have said “they” or “it” made the decision? But Casone was just getting her criticism warmed up. She continued saying that…

“It’s definitely going to the Supreme Court. They’re going to strike this down. There’s no way they can’t legally. And by the way, that amendment that she’s citing in this – you mentioned how ludicrous it is – 1868 guys. This is when this was put in the Constitution.”

Setting aside Casone’s worthless predictions of what the Supreme Court may or may not do, her dismissal of the 14th Amendment is absurd in the extreme. She thinks that because it was ratified in 1868 that its legality has waned with age. Wait until she hears when the core Constitution was ratified. Does she also think that the Bill Rights is a passé list of technicalities that no longer have any legal relevance?

For the record, Bellows’ decision was a cogent interpretation of constitutional law. Her conclusions are in line with those of constitutional experts who span the spectrum of political ideologies, including the liberal Harvard Law professor emeritus, Lawrence Tribe, and the conservative former federal judge J. Michael Luttig, who co-authored a compelling article on the subject entitled, The Constitution Prohibits Trump From Ever Being President Again.” Bellows concluded that…

“…the record establishes that Mr. Trump, over the course of several months and culminating on January 6, 2021, used a false narrative of election fraud to inflame his supporters and direct them to the Capitol to prevent certification of the 2020 election and the peaceful transfer of power. [and] was aware of the likelihood for violence and at least initially supported its use given he both encouraged it with incendiary rhetoric and took no timely action to stop it.” […]

“I do not reach this conclusion lightly. Democracy is sacred… I am mindful that no Secretary of State has ever deprived a presidential candidate of ballot access based on Section Three of the Fourteenth Amendment. I am also mindful, however, that no presidential candidate has ever before engaged in insurrection.”

Trump’s legal and political problems are weighing heavily on him and his defenders in the Republican Party and on Fox News. The GOP had an opportunity to rid itself of Trump – twice – by simply removing him from office after one of his impeachments. They almost did the second time when a majority of senators (57), including seven Republicans, voted to oust Trump, but short of the two-thirds needed. If Republicans were smart (and they aren’t) they’d take this opportunity now to finally ditch Trump by supporting his removal from the ballot. But they won’t. Because IT’S A CULT!

GOP Speaker Johnson is Helping Criminals who Stormed the Capitol on January 6th to Evade the Law

The Republican Party has long referred to itself as the party of “law and order.” That has never really been true, but it is farther removed from that description than ever with its current leader, Donald Trump, who is facing 91 felony charges, and has already been found liable for multiple crimes including financial fraud and rape.

GOP Insurrection

The GOP has lately been embracing the alternate designation of “outlaw and disorder.” That’s especially evident in the aftermath of the violent insurrection that Trump incited on January 6, 2021, when he refused to peacefully leave office. Ever since then Trump has been feverishly disseminating his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged and stolen” from him. Never mind that he has failed to produce a shred of evidence to support his claims in more than three years and 60+ court cases. And that failure is driving him crazy(er).

SEE THIS: Trump Confesses to Bouts of Rage and Gluttony After Liz Cheney Reports His Reaction to January 6

Adding to the GOP’s commitment to criminality is the new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson. In a press conference on Tuesday Johnson was asked about the 44,000 hours of videos of the January 6th insurrection that he has promised to release to the public. He claims that this is an act of transparency that will allow the American people to judge for themselves what happened. As if they didn’t already see it live on television at the time. And does Johnson really think that people are going to sit through 44,000 hours of video, a task that would take them five years if they watched 24 hour a day?

Making matters even worse (a key feature of today’s Republicans in Congress), at Tuesday’s press conference Johnson repeated his intention to blur the faces of the people in the insurrection videos. However, on this occasion, Johnson stated his reason for doing so…

“We trust the American people to draw their own conclusions. They should not be dictated by some narrative and accept that as fact. So they can review the tapes themselves. We’re going through a methodical process of releasing them as quickly as we can. As you know, we have to blur some of the faces of persons who participated in the events of that day because we don’t want them to be retaliated against and to be charged by the DOJ, and to have other, you know, concerns and problems.”

To be clear, what Johnson is saying is that he is going to deliberately hide the identities of the criminals who stormed the Capitol, assaulted police, terrorized members of Congress and their staff, and vandalized public property, all in an effort to obstruct Congress from carrying out its constitutional duty to certify the election. In other words, he is obstructing justice in order to help treasonous thugs get away with their crimes.

This raises some pressing questions for Johnson and others on the right who insist that January 6th was nothing more than a pleasant stroll through the Capitol by tranquil tourists. For instance, why would Johnson want to blur the faces of people who were allegedly engaging in a peaceful, legal protest? And wouldn’t he want to expose the members of Antifa and the FBI stooges that the right claims were inciting the riots?

Apparently not. It appears that Johnson’s motives are to shield lawbreakers from accountability for their criminal acts. He is purposefully obstructing justice and withholding evidence from law enforcement. Although it’s likely that the FBI already has these videos, so the only people Johnson actually cares about releasing them to are the MAGA media who will distort them to create the sort of false narratives that Johnson said he wants to avoid.

Johnson’s method of editing and releasing the tapes will only aid and abet those who intend to commit more crimes in the future. And he is simultaneously casting doubt on the 2020 election by supporting those who falsely claim that it was stolen. But then, Johnson has been open about his own intentions with regard to his stewardship of the House…

SEE ALSO: GOP Speaker Admits the Purpose of the Biden Impeachment Inquiry is to Hurt Biden Politically

Between now and November of 2024, the American people need to be repeatedly reminded that Republicans are affirmatively pro-criminal. They demonstrate that in their efforts to protect the Capitol rioters. It’s obvious in the excuses they make for undermining democracy. But even more so, it is evident in their worshipful, cult-like support for Trump, a recidivist lawbreaker who aspires to install himself as an American dictator. Which every patriotic American must work diligently to oppose and prevent. in the weeks leading up to the next election.

RELATED STORIES:

UPDATE: Johnson’s spokesman walked back his statements about blurring faces in the videos to keep the insurrectionists from being prosecuted. He says that Johnson meant that only videos available to the public would have the blurring. That, however, is not what he said. And how does it advance “transparency” if there is any such modifications at all? It’s likely they were told that Johnson’s remarks constituted obstruction of justice and they are trying to avoid legal liability.

Trump Confesses to Bouts of Rage and Gluttony After Liz Cheney Reports His Reaction to January 6

It’s uncanny that the best source of damaging information about Donald Trump is frequently Donald Trump. He never seems the least bit hesitant to engage in rhetoric that others would find offensive, and his psychoses are so ingrained that he is either unaware when he is validating them or, considering his inflated ego, he’s downright proud of them.

Trump in Bed, Eating, Sad

This tendency by Trump to put his own deficiencies on display has manifested itself in heinous outbursts that reveal his racism, his misogyny, his corruption, his megalomania, his seething hatred for anyone or anything that isn’t unwaveringly worshipful, his aspirations for tyrannical power, and his admiration of tyrants who wield it.

SEE THIS: Trump’s Uber-MAGA 2024 Campaign Message Reeks of the 3rd Reich Rhetoric of the ‘Final Battle’

Case in point: Early Monday morning (about 1:00 AM) Trump was wide-eyed and raging over excerpts from the new book by Liz Cheney, Oath and Honor: A Memoir and a Warning.” The particular excerpt that was keeping Trump awake was one where Cheney recounted how Trump’s people sought Kevin McCarthy’s help after the January 6th insurrection and coup attempt that Trump incited because “They’re really worried. Trump’s not eating, so they asked me to come see him. […] he’s really depressed,”

Let’s set aside how preposterous McCarthy’s story is. Why would Team Trump seek McCarthy as a comforting influence so soon after he condemned Trump for inciting the storming of the Capitol? Not to mention the absurdity of any such event diminishing Trump’s ravenous appetite. He was probably scarfing down KFC when he posted the following attack on Cheney on his failing social media scam, Truth Social

“Crazy Liz Cheney, who suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome at a level rarely seen before, writes in her boring new book that Keven McCarthy said he came to Mar-a-Lago after the RIGGED election because, ‘the former president was depressed and not eating.’ That statement is not true. I was not depressed, I WAS ANGRY, and it was not that I was not eating, it was that I was eating too much.”

There’s a lot to unpack in that spiel. Starting with the fact that Trump couldn’t possibly know whether Cheney’s book was boring because he surely didn’t read it. He also misspelled Kevin McCarthy’s name, twice. And he seems incapable of making any statement without including a reference to the “RIGGED” election that wasn’t rigged.

However, the most ludicrous part of Trump’s tantrum was his denial of the account as reported by Cheney. In the process of refuting the allegation that he was depressed and not eating, Trump confessed instead that he was “ANGRY” and “was eating too much.” How is that better? While it is more more believable that Trump was grouchy and gluttonous, than that he was glum and glutted, he is still affirming that he had a psychotic reaction to the events that took place on January 6th, and the days that followed.

Trump could be diagnosed as suffering from a combination of Explosive Anger and Binge Eating Disorders. So a visit with “Doctor” McCarthy was in order to stabilize him. Apparently it didn’t work, because Trump remained irrationally upset, and still does to this day. That might explain his subsequent post wherein he lashed out at Robert De Niro, calling him “a ‘mental midget’ whose mind is shot, and whose life is a total train wreck [and] can’t put two sentences together.” Funny, that sounds more like Trump himself. Projection?

Trump’s fury over what Cheney said isn’t likely to subside any time soon. Especially if she continues giving interviews like the one she gave on NBC’s “Today Show” on Monday morning wherein Cheney gave a chilling warning about the prospect of a second Trump term and his yearning to be president-for-life. It’s something that Trump will surely remember for a long time. And so should all Americans who love their country.

GOP is Drooling Over January 6th Video that Tucker Carlson Already Tried and Failed to Distort

Nearly three years after the violent insurrection at the Capitol that Donald Trump incited, Republicans and right-wing media are still trying to defend it as nothing more than a stroll through the park with a few thousand rampaging pals who were miffed that Congress was about to carry out their constitutional duty to certify that Joe Biden had won the election.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Q Shaman

There really is no rational debate as to whether Trump’s cult followers stormed the Capitol, seeking to obstruct the process, vandalizing public property, and terrorizing members of Congress and their staff. The American people watched it live on television as it happened, and the documentary, testimonial, and video evidence is overwhelming.

However, the irrational debate rages on in MAGA Land with the announcement that 44,000 hours of video will be made available to the public by the new Republican Speaker of the House. Mike Johnson. Rest assured that the rabidly partisan “MAGA Mike” has ulterior motives underlying this, as he does for everything.

SEE THIS: GOP Speaker Admits the Purpose of the Biden Impeachment Inquiry is to Hurt Biden Politically

The quantity of video is hard to comprehend. One person watching 24 hours a day would take five years to see all of it. Nevertheless, releasing them could be seen as an act of transparency by the government, if done properly. But don’t expect that to be the case with the Republicans in charge of the project. There will likely be inappropriate security breaches, unexplained missing footage, and Johnson has already said that faces will be blurred in order to help the lawbreakers get away with their crimes.

In the meantime, Republicans are downright giddy over the prospect of being able to distort and distribute their versions of events by selectively editing what they disseminate. Many of them rushed to express their excitement online, including…

  • Donald Trump: “Congratulations to Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson for having the Courage and Fortitude to release all of the J6 Tapes, which will explicitly reveal what really happened on January 6th!”
  • Rep. Clay Higgins “Prepare to be shocked. This release will reveal the insidious truth that the left and the corrupt officials at FBI/DOJ do NOT want Americans to see. No less than 5-10 key Democrats will announce they’re retiring from Congress. Don’t doubt me.”
  • Sen. Mike Lee: “How many of these guys are feds? (As if you’d ever tell us).”
  • Rep. Troy Nehls: “This is what they’ve been hiding from you, the American people. Do you need any more proof that January 6 was NOT an insurrection?”
  • Rep. Lauren Boebert: “Speaker Johnson has released all the January 6 tapes. Promises made. Promises kept.”
  • Rep. Mary Miller: “Thank you, Speaker Johnson. The American people have a right to see this footage after the lies they were told by Pelosi’s January 6 Witch Hunt Committee.”
  • Rep. Andy Biggs: “Full access to January 6 tapes below. Americans can now see the truth for themselves without the bias from the J6 Committee, mainstream media, and radical Left.”

Apparently lost in this feasting frenzy is the fact that the former GOP House Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, already released these videos exclusively to the pro-insurrection, Putin loving poseur, Tucker Carlson, while he was still employed by Fox News.

SEE ALSO: House Squeaker Kevin McCarthy Hands Over 41,000 Hours of January 6th Video to – Tucker Carlson?

True to form, Carlson produced a flagrantly biased program that portrayed the hostile MAGA horde as peaceful tourists visiting the nation’s capitol. He deceitfully described the StormTrumpers as “orderly and meek.” His ludicrous narrative was widely mocked and dismissed as the propagandistic trash that it was. And in the end, he aired only a few carefully edited, and particularly boring, minutes of the 40,000+ hours of video over two nights that revealed nothing of significance.

Expect more of the same when Republicans and their MAGA mouthpieces in the media begin rolling out their “analyses” of the January 6th videos. They will feature chopped clips of languid moments in empty hallways and then conclude that nothing happened. It’s like playing video of JFK smiling and waving at the cheering crowds in Dallas prior to the shooting, and using that as evidence that he was never assassinated. That’s the level of “logic” employed by the MAGA-publicans.

HUH? Trump Claims He Wanted to Go Back to the Capitol on January 6th to ‘Stop the Problem’

It has been three years since Donald Trump decisively lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden. But he he is still whining petulantly about it and making preposterous, unsupported claims that the election was “stollen” and “rigged.” His obsession with his humiliating defeat is clearly gnawing at his humongous, yet fragile, ego. And he doesn’t intend to let it go.

Donald Trump Insurrection

Trump has repeatedly promised to reveal the “massive” and “Irrefutable” evidence of voter fraud that he has stashed away somewhere, but for three years has refused to present to either the press or the courts. Either he is withholding it for the dramatic effect of a reality TV cliffhanger or, more likely, it doesn’t exist. (Spoiler: It’s the latter).

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

The farcical voter fraud fiction that Trump persists in peddling to his cult followers continues to grow in both deceit and decibels. The more dishonest his blather, the louder he bellows. New permutations keep arising from the trash heap of his warped imagination. And the latest is a doozy.

Trump has long justified the violent insurrection in Washington, D.C., on January 6th, 2021, as a reasonable response by citizens outraged by the tales of voter fraud that Trump and his media mouthpieces manufactured. That “Big Lie” was so egregious that Fox News was forced to settle a defamation lawsuit for nearly a billion dollars brought by Dominion Voting Systems. And the criminal indictment currently pending against Trump in Washington includes charges related to his incitement of the riot and his neglect in restoring the peace.

Now, a book by Jonathan Karl, Tired of Winning,” includes an interview wherein Trump offers a heretofore unheard account of what happened on January 6th. Apparently Trump believes – or wants others to believe – that he was a foiled hero. And Lordy… Karl has tapes. Trump was recorded saying that…

“If you look at the real size of that crowd, it was never reported correctly. There were – it’s the biggest crowd I’ve ever spoken in front of by far. By far. That went down to the Washington – That went back to the Washington Monument.

“I was going to [go to the Capitol] and then Secret Service said you can’t. And then by the time— I would have, and then when I get back, I saw – I wanted to go back. I was thinking about going back during the problem to stop the problem. Doing it myself. Secret Service didn’t like that idea too much.

“And I could have done that, and you know what? I would have been very well received. Don’t forget, the people that went to Washington that day, in my opinion, they went because they thought the election was rigged. That’s why they went.”

Setting aside Trump’s typical narcissistic delusions about crowd size, he is claiming that he intended to ride to the rescue of the besieged Congress and save everyone himself. Only a brain-dead, cult-indoctrinated, paste-eater could swallow that bullpucky. The evidence provided in testimony, documents, and video, shows that Trump was at the White House cheering on the rioters as they smashed their way into the Capitol, vandalized public property, and terrorized members of Congress and their staffs, in an attempt to obstruct Congress from certifying the election.

When Trump finally did record a video to ostensibly calm the crowd – nearly three hours after the assault began – he slathered his StormTrumpers with affection, telling them that he “loved” them and understood their anger. He also tweeted that “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away.”

Trump’s phony account of his heroic aspirations is pure fantasy. He supported the obstruction of Congress and the insurrectionists who engaged in it. To this day he holds those same positions. He recently promised to halt the prosecutions of the January 6th mob if he were to be reelected. And he continues to disgorge his grossly distorted versions his reality as to what took place that day.

The only way to interpret Trump’s claim that he wanted to “stop the problem” at the Capitol is to recognize what he considered the problem to be. It wasn’t that a hostile horde of his hooligans were on a frenzied, anti-democratic rampage. It was that Congress was about to certify that Biden had won the election. And in Trump’s mind he was called not to “stop the problem,” but to “Stop the Steal,” which was what his rally at the Ellipse was titled. If he really wanted to go back to the Capitol, it was only to plant a Trump flag and declare himself president-for-life.

Trump Bombs on Meet the Press, Behaving Like a Petulant Toddler Who Couldn’t Stop Lying

In what will come as a surprise to virtually nobody with a functioning brain, Donald Trump humiliated himself in another interview wherein he tried desperately to defend his twisted perceptions of a world that only a severely malignant narcissist could manufacture.

Donald Trump

On Sunday morning Trump’s interview with Kristen Welker of Meet the Press aired. It was an abbreviated version of the full encounter that was rife with lies, paranoia, and wholly undue self-exaltation. Trump behaved throughout like an obstinate child who didn’t get his way. He couldn’t answer a single question without diverting – over and over again – to tangential matters. He incessantly repeated his delusional distortions of reality as if in a broken loop. Welker had to keep dragging him back to the subject of her question as if he were a mental patient who refused to pay attention.

The failure of Trump to coherently express himself was not a result Welker’s masterful interviewing skills, She struggled to keep him track, missed opportunities to correct his blatant dishonesty, and showed him a measure of respect that is entirely inappropriate for a disgraced former leader who is under multiple criminal indictments on dozens of felony charges.

Nevertheless, Welker’s shortcomings didn’t prevent the real deficiencies of Trump from coming through. Anyone who has the time to waste should scan through the transcript to see how pitifully bereft Trump is of intelligence and integrity. He misrepresented the truth on every issue that was discussed. And NBC News only bothered to fact-check him in a separate article that was published only online. A few examples include…

On Immigration:
Trump: I saw some statistics and it said in 2019, there were no terrorists. They caught no terrorists. And now this year, it’s a record number like they’ve never seen before.
Fact: 216 people on the terrorist watchlist were apprehended this year. There were 280 in 2019 during the Trump administration.

On Pardoning January 6th Insurrectionists:
Trump: These people on Jan. 6. Some of them never even went into the building, and they’re being given sentences of many years.
Fact: Those who received the longest sentences were leaders of the insurrection, including Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio and Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes. And others who didn’t enter the Capitol had committed assaults on police officers outside.

On Election Fraud:
Trump: If this were ever before a court, we would win so easy. There is so much evidence that the election was rigged.
Fact: There were over 60 court cases that Trump and his allies lost for lack of evidence. And he hasn’t bothered to produced any in three years.

On Abortion:
Trump: The radical people on [abortion] are really the Democrat that say after five months, six months, seven months, eight months, nine months, and even after birth, you are allowed to terminate the baby.
Fact: No Democrats have ever advocated for abortion after birth. And late term abortions are extremely rare and only performed under dire circumstances.

On Ukraine:
Trump: They don’t report about the war [in Ukraine] anymore. You don’t find much reporting. That means that Ukraine’s losing. Okay?
Fact: HUH? Trump must only be watching Newsmax and reruns of The Apprentice.

One especially disturbing part of the interview was when Trump went on an extended rant about election fraud, alleging falsely that tens of thousands of ballots were stuffed into ballot boxes. Welker repeatedly told him that that wasn’t true and that those assertions – including the bogus “2,000 Mules” crocumentary – were all thoroughly debunked. But Trump was determined to persist with his lies even after Welker tried to move on to another subject ten times.

Another feature of the interview was Trump’s uncharacteristic reticence when discussing the January 6th insurrection that he incited. He made a few preposterous assertions such as his attempt to blame it all on former Speaker Pelosi. He told Welker that “They (the January 6th Committee) destroyed all the evidence about Nancy Pelosi.” That, of course, is a provable lie. But on several occasions he simply refused to answer direct questions…

Welker: Tell me how you watched this all unfold. Were you in the dining room watching TV?
Trump: I’m not going to tell you. I’ll tell people later at an appropriate time.

Welker: I want to know who you called on that day.
Trump: I don’t have — why would I tell you that?

Welker: Did you call military or law enforcement at the moment the Capitol was under attack?
Trump: I’m not going to tell you anything.

However, later in the interview, Trump may have said too much. Welker asked him about his personal responsibility and decision making with regard to his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. And while he frequently tries to shift any wrongdoing to others, on this occasion he seemed to confess, placing the blame on himself, where it actually belongs. Welker inquired as to who Trump took advice from on the matter. He replied…

Trump: You know who I listen to? Myself. I saw what happened. I watched that election, and I thought the election was over at 10 o’clock in the evening. […] I was listening to different people. And when I added it all up, the election was rigged. [NOTE: at 10:00pm ET polls weren’t even closed in the western U.S. Also, mail-in and military ballots in many states are not counted until after the in-person votes]
Welker: Were you calling the shots, ultimately?
Trump: As to whether or not I believed it was rigged? Oh, sure. It was my decision.

To top things off, Trump made a pitch for his reelection next year saying saying that “In six months to a year, many of the problems, almost all of the problems that you and I have just spoken about, will be solved.” Which makes you wonder, if it’s so easy, why he didn’t solve all of these problems in the four years he already had? And why would any sane person believe that he can solve them now?

Trump is APPALLED that These ‘Fascist Monsters’ Convicted Another One of His Criminal Cohorts

The rap sheet for the Donald Trump Crime Syndicate just seems to get longer with each passing day. So far there have been eight Trump associates convicted. They include such intimate confederates as Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Michael Cohen, and Steve Bannon.

Donald Trump

That’s not even counting his business, The Trump Organization, or those indicted with trials pending that number many times more. It also doesn’t count the hundreds of January 6th insurrectionists who stormed the Capital on his behalf in an attempted violent coup that sought to undermine democracy. The deep bench of Trump’s roster of mobsters is a testament to his lawlessness and authoritarian aspirations. Yet somehow he’s still trying to peddle a preposterous narrative wherein everyone else is guilty of persecuting him.

On Friday morning Trump posted another his hate-filled harangues on his failing social media scam, Truth Social. On this occasion Trump felt an obsessive compulsion to vent about the latest conviction of one of his former White House cronies, Peter Navarro, who was found guilty of Contempt of Congress. Trump raged that…

“I can’t believe that these Fascist Monsters have so viciously gone after the great Peter Navarro for defying the totally partisan January 6th Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs, who refused to go after Crazy Nancy Pelosi, and the reasons she and the Mayor of D.C. REJECTED 10,000 soldiers, which would have easily stopped any future security problem.”

First of all, you have to wonder why Trump has so much trouble believing that Navarro was convicted, considering all of the criminal company he has in Trump World. Furthermore, it was an open and shut case. After being subpoenaed by the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that Trump incited, Navarro failed to show up or produce the requested documents.

Trump went on to complain that Navarro’s testimony “wouldn’t have mattered, anyway, because the ‘Committee’ QUICKLY and ILLEGALLY DELETED & DESTROYED ALL EVIDENCE & FINDINGS!” Which is a flagrant lie. All of the evidence and testimony compiled by the Committee was preserved and is still available online.

In a subsequent post, Trump praised Navarro as the “single greatest trade negotiator against China, who paid the U.S. hundreds of billions of dollars during the Trump Administration.” Of course, Trump’s trade policy with China was a massive failure that raised prices for the America people.

While Trump frequently claims that he was responsible for making China pay billions of dollars to the U.S. in tariffs, he is purposefully lying. Tariffs are not paid by the country they are imposed on. They are paid by American importers, distributors, and wholesalers, who then pass on those costs to consumers. China didn’t pay one red cent to the U.S., and Trump knows it.

Another notable feature in Trump’s post is that it is an example of his signature run-on sentences and rhetorical rambling. He drags his twisted commentary out to cover everything from Navarro, to the January 6th Committee, to Nancy Pelosi, to the insurrection, and to the 10,000 soldiers that he never actually proposed. All in a single sentence.

That sort of cramming of numerous, tedious, unrelated thoughts into a single expression is a common feature of Trump’s tantrums. It is also a psychological condition known as logorrhea,” which is defined as a communication disorder that causes excessive wordiness and repetitiveness, which can cause incoherency. It’s just another diagnosis that fits Trump’s psychoses, which includes Narcissistic Personality Disorder. And it’s another reason (as if more were needed) that he is utterly unfit to hold office.
