Americans are Unsatisfied with Politics in General, But Specifically Despise Trump and the GOP

One thing that Donald Trump and the Republican Party can boast about having accomplished is poisoning the political atmosphere through divisive rhetoric, disinformation, and hate speech.

Donald Trump, Joe Biden

Throughout the Era of Trump, he has never tried to unite the nation or to expand his reach out to voter groups that weren’t already devoutly embracing his cult movement. And the GOP has been too afraid to separate themselves from Trump. Consequently, they have also constricted their support to the farthest edges of the right-wing fringe. And that’s a condition that has been exacerbated by the Republican Ministry of Disinformation, aka Fox News.

On the other hand, President Biden and the Democrats have at least tried to appeal to a broader constituency. They have succeeded with regard to some of the never-Trump Republicans and Independents. And the results are evident in a new survey by NBC News.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump, Congress, NBC Poll

This poll shows the general dissatisfaction that has shrouded American politics. However, Democrats are not nearly as bad off as Republicans. Biden and the Democratic Party have a net negative approval in single digits. While Trump and the GOP are rated significantly lower and are underwater by more than -20%. And worse for Trump, only 33% of Republicans identify as Trump supporters.

So the next time you hear Trump bragging about how he is leading everybody in every poll by a lot, remember that he is a pathological liar and that the truth is that he was the most unpopular president in modern times, and his popularity has decreased since he was unceremoniously evicted from the White House.

Fox News is OUTRAGED Because Biden Dares to Say He is ‘Optimistic About America’s Future’

It must be getting harder and harder for Fox News to come up with new and more appalling manufactured scandals every day to malign President Biden and the Democratic Party. Particularly when Donald Trump and the Republicans are saying and doing truly awful and/or idiotic things that steal the media spotlight.

Fox News, Joe Biden

While Biden is focused squarely on improving the lives of the American people, The Trumpian GOP is stumbling over their own cloven hooves trying to polish rotten apples like House Squeaker Kevin McCarthy, QAnon quack Marjorie Taylor Green, and pathological liar George Santos. And it can’t help the right-wing ranters that Trump is still out there yammering about all the “witch hunts” he is suffering through, and how he lost the 2020 presidential election, and how much he adores his mentor, Vladimir Putin.

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

Consequently, Fox News is anxiously scraping the bottom of the barrel for dirt to fling at Democrats. And this week they scrounged a doozy of an alleged misdeed on Biden’s part. They caught him saying out loud that “I’ve never been more optimistic about America’s future.” Oh my heavens. He must be impeached at once!

That atrocious outburst spurred Fox News to produce a story that was entirely based on Biden’s unconscionable faith in our country. It’s headline blared “Biden slammed after giving his ‘word as a Biden’ that America’s future looks great: ‘We’re screwed'” Of course the “slamming” that Fox reported was all from Republican officials and random right-wing Twitter trolls. Their “fair and balanced” coverage ranged all the way from conservative crackpot to ultra-fringe lunatic.

What’s more, this wasn’t just a one-off assault against Biden’s unbridled patriotism. A week ago Fox News did exactly the same story triggered by a similar tweet by the President.

The story that Fox News did in response to that uncalled for positivity sported a headline that read “Biden’s tweet about his optimism for America prompts immediate backlash: ‘Jesus take the wheel'” And once again, the entirety of the story was cluttered with “backlashing” from wingnut righties on Twitter whose criticisms centered mostly on infantile insults and misinformation.

For the record, Biden has good reason to be optimistic about America’s future. He has presided over two years of historic progress during difficult times. His achievements include both legislative and executive initiatives on the issues that matter most to the American people: job creation, civil and human rights, healthcare, energy and climate, international alliances, guns, COVID, and more.

That’s precisely what is enraging Fox News and the Republican right. The last thing they want is for America and Americans to prosper while a Democrat is in the White House. Hence their steadfast devotion to obstructing everything that Biden and Democrats in Congress are doing.

The GOP is countering Democratic optimism with Republican hopelessness. And they are pursuing petty and vengeful policies in their new role as the majority party in the House of Representatives. However, in the end, that’s going to hurt Republicans and it will just be more reason for Democrats to be optimistic.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Bashes Biden for Bringing Down Gas Prices, Ted Lieu Claps Back Brilliantly

The price of gas has long been a major factor in assessing the approval of the President and other government officials. Prior to last year’s midterm election Republicans attempted to use high gas prices to drag down President Biden and the electoral prospects of congressional Democrats. It didn’t work.

Click here to Tweet this article

Marjorie Taylor Greene, QAnon

Now gas prices have fallen considerably. They now average about $3.44 per gallon nationwide, which is equal to where they were two years ago. That’s down from a high of $5.02 in June of 2022. And even though prices fell each month for the remainder of last year, the GOP furiously condemned Biden as being responsible for the high prices and criticized him for not bringing them down.

RELATED: Karine Jean-Pierre Has to School Peter Doocy of Fox News that Lower Gas Prices Are a Good Thing

On Friday on the floor of the House of Representatives, Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-QAnon) sought to make gas prices an issue again. But this time she was appalled that Biden had taken measures to lower gas prices. How dare Biden make the cost of living more affordable for the American people? This debate was centered around her amendment (which later lost by a landslide 14 to 418 vote) to place restrictions on when and how a president can utilize the Strategic Petroleum Reserves. She fumed that…

“President Biden abused his power to sell our oil, reduce gas prices, so that the midterm elections would swing Democrats’ way. It’s a shame to trick the American people just to win an election. No president should be able to use their emergency powers for politics.”

It’s a welcome surprise to see Greene actually admit that Biden lowered gas prices, even though she somehow intended it to be a criticism. To be clear, Greene only wants to make sure that Biden is castigated for gas prices when they are high, and also when he successfully manages to lower them. It’s a lose-lose proposition. And she is defining anything that benefits the people as a “political” stunt and, therefore, must not be permitted. Which would explain why Republicans never do anything that benefits people, except that we already know they have no aversion to political stunts themselves.

What Greene is actually saying is that no Democratic president should be able to use their powers to benefit the American people. And her Olympic-grade hypocrisy was not lost on Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu who responded to Greene’s griping saying that…

“I can summarize this debate of the last two days into one sentence: Joe Biden lowered your gas prices and Republicans are upset about it. That’s what this is about. Joe Biden lowered your gas prices and that makes Republicans mad. And how do we know? They said it out loud. The gentlewoman from Georgia earlier this morning just said that Joe Biden lowered your gas prices for political reasons. You know, I don’t care why a president lowers your gas prices. If any president can lower your gas prices, we should support that president’s action.”

Rep. Lieu was just getting started. He continued saying that…

“There’s another reason this Republican bill is so stupid. Because not only did Joe Biden lower your gas prices, the United States of America made a profit on it. Buy low, sell high. It was brilliant what Joe Biden did. He released the Strategic Petroleum Reserves when gas prices were high, and that helped lower the gas prices. And then he refilled it at the lower amount. The U.S. made $4 billion dollars on Joe Biden’s actions. The Republicans always want to say ‘Let’s run government like a business.’ Joe Biden did exactly that when he lowered your gas prices, and then made a $4 billion dollar profit for the United States of America.”

So Biden eased a primary factor of the inflationary crush that Americans were enduring, and he made a few billion bucks on their behalf at the same time. No wonder MTG and the GOP are angry. The problem for them is that they are openly displaying that they couldn’t care less about helping the people of this country, especially if there’s a chance that Biden or the Democrats might get credit for it. And they remain pitifully out of touch with the issues that matter most to the nation.

Tucker Carlson’s Insane Theory that Feds Recruited Pence in a Botched Plot to Take Down Trump

The epidemic of wayward classified documents is spreading like wildfire. It began with Donald Trump being caught with hundreds of such documents at his Mar-a-Lago hotel/home. Then President Biden came forward voluntarily to disclose that his lawyers had found a few documents at his Delaware abode. And most recently, former VP Mike Pence joined the club.

Fox News. Tucker Carlson

There are stark differences in the details of these revelations. Most notable is the fact that both Biden and Pence discovered the mishandled materials, that they claim were taken inadvertently, and immediately notified the proper authorities. Trump, on the other hand, admits to having taken the documents deliberately, lied to the FBI about having them, and refused to return them.

RELATED: Trump Whines ‘Leave Mike Pence Alone’ After Learning He Had Classified Documents at His Home

However, you have to credit Tucker Carlson of Fox News for concocting the most preposterous conspiracy theories about these affairs. On the Tuesday night episode of his primetime crackpottery, Carlson dived head first into an empty pool in a frantic attempt pollute the news cycle with utter nonsense. With a chyron declaring that “Mike Pence Swoops in to Save Joe Biden,” Tucker spun that…

“Just days ago, Mike Pence sent his personal attorney to search his family’s home in Carmel, Indiana, for classified documents. Now, if Mike Pence didn’t think he had classified documents, why would he send his lawyer to go look for classified documents? We can’t say for certain, but it’s entirely possible – in fact, it’s likely – that Mike Pence was asked to do this by federal prosecutors who are trying to build a case against his old boss, Donald Trump.

“Now, the point would be to show that not every federal official walks off with state secrets. Donald Trump was uniquely evil in that regard, as in so many others. See, Mike Pence didn’t do it. So if that was the plan – and we suspect that it was – it backfired spectacularly because Mike Pence’s lawyer promptly discovered classified documents. He immediately loaded these documents into his car and drove them back to Washington to hand them over to authorities.”

Wow. Just WOW! Carlson is puzzled that, after all the hoopla about Trump and Biden, Pence would seek to ascertain if he were similarly susceptible to the classified docs melodrama. Turns out he was, so it was a good call. But from Carlson’s perverse perspective there was more to the story. He asserted, without any factual basis, that it was “likely” that Pence had been recruited by federal prosecutors “to build a case against his old boss, Donald Trump.”

Carlson’s theory, like almost everything that he says (see his recent pro-cancer advocacy of tobacco), doesn’t hold water. Why would the discovery of classified documents at Pence’s home in Indiana have any bearing on the legal consequences for Trump? Trump remains at risk for his purposeful purloining of sensitive national security materials, and for his obstruction and dishonesty, regardless of whether or not anything was found at Pence’s home.

What’s more, Carlson’s conspiratorial contrivance was buried in a broader bucket of bullshittery that involved – who else? – Hunter Biden. Carlson cited a report in Rupert Murdoch’s slimy New York Post that he said proves that…

“Hunter Biden had classified information in his possession. Almost certainly that came from his father, then the vice president. And that he used that information to make piles of money for the Biden family while working at a fake job in Ukraine.”

Of course, there is absolutely no evidence of anything remotely resembling that accusation in the New York Post or anywhere else. Carlson just made it up. Which is typical for a deceitful propagandist whose own Fox News lawyers defended him – successfully – in a defamation lawsuit by arguing that “no reasonable person” would take him seriously. And even Tucker has a rather insightful opinion of himself. He began Tuesday’s segment saying that…

“A lot of what you read at this point feels not like news, but instead, like some highly curated version of reality crafted to manipulate you.”

Yep. That’s exactly what it feels like when watching Tucker Carlson and most everything else on Fox News. It was nice of him to point it out.

Trump Whines ‘Leave Mike Pence Alone’ After Learning He Had Classified Documents at His Home

The Case of the Classified Documents is getting more complex with each passing day. It began with Donald Trump stealing and hoarding hundreds of sensitive national security documents at his Mar-a-Lago hotel/home. Then it expanded to include documents found in President Biden’s home in Delaware. And now former VP Mike Pence has joined the club.

Donald Trump, Wah

While the underlying plot points have distinct similarities, the details reveal stark differences. For instance, both Biden and Pence assert that the documents in their possession were taken inadvertently. They both conducted voluntary searches and immediately turned over what they found to the FBI and the National Archives. By contrast, Trump still claims that the documents he took belong to him. He initially lied to the FBI about having them. And he refused to return them when asked, prompting the issuance of a search warrant for his Palm Beach bunker.

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

Trump continues to insist that he did nothing wrong. He has accused the Justice Department and the FBI of being “thugs” and “fascists” who are conspiring to destroy him. And now that Pence has been caught up in this melodrama, Trump, who recently renewed his accusations that Pence is a “Deep State” traitor for not trying to overturn the 2020 election results, is trumpeting Pence’s innocence. He posted a comment on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, saying that…

“Mike Pence is an innocent man. He never did anything knowingly dishonest in his life. Leave him alone!!!”

Did you hear that? Leave him alone! Pence appears to have done precisely what Biden did, but Trump wants him to be left alone. Meanwhile, he wants Biden to be drawn and quartered. What Trump did, in contrast to Biden and Pence, was deliberate and brazenly criminal. And yet he thinks he should be reelected to the presidency. Don’t try to make any sense of it. It’s just the rambling of a deeply disturbed egomaniac with a warped mind and no grasp of reality.

Predictably, Fox News is covering the Pence documents story with their usual bias and dishonesty. On Tuesday morning’s episode of “Outnumbered,” co-host Mollie Hemingway repeatedly tried to trivialize the matter of all classified documents being mishandled and falsely claimed that President Obama had disputes with the National Archives. She was parroting a recent Trump lie that Obama had taken classified documents to his home in Chicago. Then Hemingway unleashed this malarkey…

“What really made this whole thing different is when the National Archives took a fairly common paperwork dispute with a former president, one they despise, and they turned it into this big, carzy thing of raiding the home. And now, all of a sudden, they’re now being hoisted by their own petard here, where they’re now having to deal with the fact that there are problems with every former president and vice-president.”

Hemingway is pretty much alone in characterizing these events as merely “common paperwork disputes.” Not even Democrats are saying that about Biden. Most people agree that the mishandling of such materials is a serious matter. The question is whether it was inadvertent or deliberate.

On that score, Hemingway correctly noted that the difference between the Biden and Pence affairs, and Trump’s, is that Trump was subject to a search warrant. But she fails to acknowledge that the reason for it was because he refused to return the documents and lied about having them. The entire segment, and those that followed, were similarly slanted. But then, you didn’t expect Fox News to report on this matter factually and responsibly, did you?

UH-OH: Trump Says (aka Lies) that He Has ‘INFO On Everyone’ Who Comes to Mar-a-Lago

When Donald Trump isn’t bragging about how stupendously awesome he thinks he is, he is disparaging everyone that he regards as being insufficiently worshipful of him. It’s a textbook example of the malignant narcissism that he’s been suffering from for decades.

Trump Penthouse Phone

The past couple of weeks has provided Trump an opportunity to lash out at his arch enemy, President Biden, over matters related to the discovery of a handful of classified documents at his home and office. Trump has sought to draw utterly inapt comparisons between his own documents scandal and Biden’s relatively trifling filing errors, the details of which are light years apart.

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

A report Monday morning has now set Trump off on another wild ride. According to CNN, the White House counsel’s office released a statement regarding the absence of visitor logs at Biden’s Delaware home, saying that “Like every President across decades of modern history, his personal residence is personal.” That rather innocuous fact was all it took to trigger Trump who posted on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, that…

“The White House just announced that there are no LOGS or information of any kind on visitors to the Wilmington house and flimsy, unlocked, and unsecured, but now very famous, garage. Maybe they are smarter than we think! This is one of seemingly many places where HIGHLY CLASSIFIED documents are stored (in a big pile on the damp floor). Mar-a-Lago is a highly secured facility, with Security Cameras all over the place, and watched over by staff & our great Secret Service. I have INFO on everyone!”

There’s a lot of steaming cow manure rising from that digital pile. To begin with, Biden’s home is hardly “unlocked and unsecured.” It is, after all, the residence of the sitting President of the United States and his family. Secondly, Trump’s description of the documents as being stored “in a big pile on the damp floor” was pulled straight from his assumptive imagination. And finally, Trump makes the unsettling declaration that “I have INFO on everyone!”

Really? We can set aside the spine-chilling implications of that because it isn’t remotely possible. There are hundreds of guests going in and out of Mar-a-Lago all the time. None of them are subjected to even the most meager ID checks. And recent examples of questionable visitors to the hotel confirm that it’s security is near non-existent.

For instance, Trump admittedly had no info on notorious white supremacist Nick Fuentes when he was a guest at Mar-a-Lago. In fact, Trump’s excuse for hosting Fuentes, whom he conspicuously declined to repudiate, was that he “had never met and knew nothing about” him. Trump also had no info on the fake heiress and alleged Russian spy who made repeated trips to Mar-a-Lago.

RELATED: Trump Says Ye and Fuentes Weren’t Vetted Because ‘My Guests [Won’t Be] Strip Searched and Beaten’

Trump’s complaint that Biden didn’t keep visitor logs for his private residence is also typically hypocritical. As president, Trump himself confessed that he didn’t keep any such logs for Mar-a-Lago. Even worse, during his term in office Trump refused to provide access to visitors logs for the White House itself, ending the traditional practice of doing so. Biden restored that practice shortly after his inauguration.

Naturally, the Republican Party is running cover for Trump. Rep. James Comer, the new chair of the House Oversight Committee, has announced his intention to seek information about visitors to Biden’s home due to the few documents that Biden voluntarily revealed had been found there. Comer simultaneously stated that he would not seek similar info for Mar-a-Lago, where hundreds of sensitive national security materials were discovered after Trump lied to the FBI about having them.

We can expect this sort of partisan dishonesty and hypocrisy to continue for the foreseeable future. That’s because Republicans care more about protecting the criminals in their party than they do about the security of the nation. And Trump will undoubtedly continue to brazenly lie about virtually everything. That’s because the truth is his enemy, and he knows it.

Trump v Biden: Their Reactions to Special Counsels Reveals Who’s Innocent and Who’s Scared

Poor crybaby Trump. The self-described “most fabulous whiner” of Mar-All-Ego is starting off the new year pretty much the same way he ended the last year: Complaining petulantly that he is a victim of the hordes of enemies that are conspiring to destroy him and his aspirations of messianic sovereignty over the American motherland.

Trump Fear

The reports that President Biden was found to be in possession of a handful of classified documents have set off the alarms spinning atop the tinfoil fedoras perched on the pinheads of Republican rage-a-holics and right-wing propagandists. Of course, the same alarmists ignore the discovery of hundreds of such documents hoarded – and lied about – by Donald Trump at his Palm Beach resort/home. And never mind that the facts associated with these stories expose just how dissimilar the circumstances are.

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

What truly reveals the divergent realities of the Trump and Biden camps is their reactions to having become the subjects of special counsels. To the surprise of no one, Trump flicked the psycho switch as he unleashed his ferocious animosity toward special counsel Jack Smith. His distemper tantrum departed from anything resembling sanity. For instance, he posted on his pitifully floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, that…

“The Special ‘Prosecutor’ assigned to the ‘get Trump case,’ Jack Smith(?), is a Trump Hating THUG whose wife is a serial and open Trump Hater.”

[NOTE: Trump doesn’t think that Smith is a prosecutor, or that his name is Smith]

And that

“Fire a man who may very well turn out to be a criminal, Jack Smith. His conflicts, unfairness, and mental state of derangement make him totally unfit for the job of ‘getting Trump.’ Go after Biden and the Biden Crime Family instead. Like Bill Barr, the U.S. Attorneys in Delaware and Illinois are weak, ineffective, and afraid to do what must be done. The Election was RIGGED, and we are now losing our Country. We can’t let that happen. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

[NOTE: Trump appears to be seeking a special counsel who is better “fit” to investigate him. Also, he is maligning Bill Barr and the U.S. Attorneys in Delaware and Illinois (David C. Weiss and John R. Lausch Jr) as weak and ineffective. He appointed all three of them]

And that

“Merrick Garland has to immediately end Special Counsel investigation into anything related to me because I did everything right, and appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Joe Biden who hates Biden as much as Jack Smith hates me.”

[NOTE: Robert Hur, the special counsel appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to probe the Biden matter, was also appointed by Trump to be the U.S. Attorney of Maryland]

In Trump’s delirium he is being pursued by an “unfair,” “deranged,’ “criminal,’ “THUG,” whose whole family hates him. Clearly Trump is scared witless, and is suffering from a toxic mixture of paranoia and guilt. Despite his psychotic inability to admit it – even to himself – he knows what he did and what the consequences are.

For comparison, observe how Biden responded to the news that AG Garland had named a special counsel to investigate his documents “scandal.”

“People know I take classified documents, classified material seriously. I also said we are cooperating fully and completely with the Justice Department’s review. […] As was done in the case of the Biden Penn Center, the Department of Justice was immediately notified and the lawyers arranged for the Department of Justice to take possession of the documents.”

The reactions by Trump and Biden reflect the stark differences between the two. Biden is calm and respectful of the law. Trump is rattled and contemptuous of the law and even those he appointed to administer it.

For good measure, Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) predictably weighed in on his side. Fox host Mark Levin ranted that…

“Garland wanted to keep this thing hidden. He wanted to sweep it under the rug until it got hot. The Republicans were calling hearings. They were gonna call witnesses. And then Garland, reluctantly, today appoints a special counsel. And who does he appoint? He appoints the right hand man to FBI director Christopher Wray. That’s hardly the same kind of special counsel that Donald Trump is facing. This whole thing stinks to high heaven.”

So Levin is asserting that Garland appointed a special counsel for Biden because he wanted to “keep this thing hidden”? That’s a strange way to pursue that goal. Levin also baselessly claims that Garland “reluctantly,” appointed the special counsel. And Levin closes by complaining that the special counsel must be biased against Trump because he once worked for FBI director Christopher Wray. Once again, Mr. Hur was appointed by Trump, and so was Mr. Wray.

The confidence and tranquility of Biden, as contrasted by the fear and hostility exhibited by Trump, the Republican Party, Fox News, and the rest of the right-wing wacko-chamber, tells you all you need to know about the players in this melodrama. And just to seal the deal, Trump also posted a comment that may be the truest thing he ever said…

“Importantly, I have single-handedly shown the American Public how Crooked and Corrupt our Government is.”

It’s uncomfortably impossible to argue with Trump about that.

SRSLY? House Squeaker McCarthy Brags on Fox News About the ‘Diversity’ of the Republican Party

The spanking new – and precariously narrow – Republican majority in the House of Representatives is off to an entirely predictable stumbling start. After taking a historic fifteen votes to crown their so-called leader, Kevin McCarthy, they immediately passed a rules package that neutered him, insuring that he will be a weaker Speaker than any of his modern predecessors.

Click here to Tweet this article

Kevin McCarthy, House Speaker (Squeaker)

Naturally, the first priority of a Republican politician intent on pedaling positive propaganda, is to book a visit with Sean Hannity of Fox News. Which is precisely what McCarthy did Tuesday night. He brought along twenty of his closest comrades to turn the Capitol into a Fox News studio annex. And even though McCarthy had previously showered his lord and savior, Donald Trump, with gratitude, Trump was apparently too busy spinning lies about President Biden to join them.

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

Undeterred, McCarthy took full advantage of the platform that Hannity provided to disseminate Republican ignorance and lies. And true to form, McCarthy exhibited his utterly shameless ability to put into, what marginally passes for English, a perspective of the world that bears no resemblance to reality. For instance, he sat proudly in silence as Hannity praised him for expanding the “diversity” of the Republican Party.

“One of the things I’d like to see and am seeing is more diversity in the Republican Party. To me the Democratic Party is the party of coastal elites.”

Elaborating on that, McCarthy’s chair of the House Republican Conference, Elise Stefanik, said to…

“Take a look around at these wonderful members. This is the most diverse class of Republicans ever elected in the history of the United States Congress.”

Go ahead. Take a look around. The members gathered to celebrate “the most diverse class of Republicans ever elected” are all white, and with just three exceptions, men. In fact, the 117th session of Congress had 58 Black members, of whom 56 were Democrats. Republicans just doubled their Black members in the new 118th session to four. And they’re proud of that?

As for Hannity’s boasting about this pitiful representation by people of color, his lament about “coastal elites” is painfully hypocritical. Hannity divides his residency between his homes in New York and Florida. And he’s whining about these nefarious coast dwellers to McCarthy, who represents a district in California.

For good measure, Hannity invited McCarthy to further embarrass himself by bringing up the issue of the debt ceiling, which Republicans have promised to exploit in order to blackmail Democrats into acceding to GOP demands to cut Social Security and Medicare. That led to this exchange…

Hannity: Now let’s get to the issue of finances and money and spending. Why don’t explain how this process now will be different, and we’re coming up against the debt ceiling vote and what that’s gonna mean. That might be the first test of how committed the Republican Party in the House is to really holding the line on spending. Am I wrong on that?
McCarthy: No, you’re not wrong on that. One of the greatest threats we have for this nation is our debt. It makes us weak in every place that we can. We have never been at this high of debt to GDP except during World War II. And what are we funding? Wasteful Washington spending much of the time.

“So we think if you had a child and you gave him a credit card, and they kept hitting the limit, do you just increase the limit, or do you change their behavior? This is our moment to change the behavior to make sure that hard working taxpayer, that we’re not wasting their money. Do you mean to tell me there’s not waste out there? So we’re gonna look at every single dollar spent. We’re gonna audit. We’re change our behavior so we can balance our budget and make us stronger.

The child with a credit card analogy is flat out ridiculous. Raising the debt ceiling does not impact in any way whatsoever how much money congress can appropriate. It only makes it possible for the Treasury to pay debts already incurred. If the U.S. defaults on those debts it would send the nation – and the world – into a severe recession or worse. If McCarthy were truly interested in reducing the debt, he would do what Biden and the Democrats have been doing that resulted in the deficit declining by $1.4 trillion last year.

For the record, Trump increased the debt by nearly $8 trillion dollars. Much of that was due to his tax cut that benefited corporations and the wealthy. And now McCarthy and the GOP are proposing to defund the IRS and deprive the agency of necessary resources to audit high income individuals and businesses. That is estimated to cost more than $114 billion dollars.

What’s more, Republicans don’t seem eager to “change their behavior.” They aren’t proposing any serious spending cuts, other than those for the safety net programs that middle and lower income Americans rely on. Meanwhile, they continue to push for even more tax cuts and for maintaining subsidies for wealthy, multinational corporations – who don’t pay taxes.

Then, after running up the debt, Republicans want to default on those obligations after the fact. It almost seems like they are deliberately trying to crash the economy during Biden’s presidency and prior to the 2024 presidential election.

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.

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.

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.

Fox News (and Ted Cruz?) are APPALLED that the Biden Family Goes on Holiday During the Holidays

Just in case anyone was worried, the Perpetual Outrage Factory known as Fox News is functioning as expected during the devastating winter storm that has battered much of the country.

Ted Cruz, Cancun

It must be terribly difficult for Fox News to scrape up – or manufacture – derogatory stories about President Biden these days. The President and the Democratic Party have scored a remarkable number of victories during the first two years of his presidency. They include the Infrastructure Bill, historic job creation, strengthening and expanding NATO, nearly 100 judicial appointments, the gun safety bill, record investments to address the climate crisis, legislation to advance U.S. microchip production, and enhancing veterans’ healthcare. All of which were welcomed by most Americans, and opposed by most Republicans.

RELATED: For Those Wondering What Biden and Democrats in Congress Have Been Doing the Past 16 Months…

Consequently, Fox News has been reduced to fabricating fictional tales of imaginary abominations in order to stain the stunning record of achievement by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress. And what Fox has latched unto in this holiday season is the atrocity of the Biden family taking a {gasp} vacation! As reported by Fox News’ Senior “Stupid Son of a B*tch,” Peter Doocy with commentary by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Cancun)…

Doocy: The President has a lot on his plate, and for the next few days he’s gonna be dealing with all of it from afar. Because the First Family stayed here at the White House for Christmas, but plans tomorrow to fly to vacation for the rest of this year and the beginning of next year in St. Croix.
Cruz: Enjoy St. Croix.

Oh, the horror of Biden and his family spending “the rest of this year” (all of four days) in a distant land that is as far from Washington, D.C. as San Antonio, Texas. Ironically that’s the same state that “Cancun” Cruz fled from when his constituents were freezing to death last year. And this is what has Fox News steaming mad, despite never having criticized Donald Trump, who spent more time away from the White House than any president in history. Usually at his own resorts where he profited from the stay by gouging staff and Secret Service for accommodations.

Fox News covered the same horror story on their website where the headline read “Biden vacations in Virgin Islands as Americans face problems at home.” Who wants to tell Fox that the Virgin Islands are a U.S. territory and are therefore “home.” What’s more, a vague headline saying that “Americans face problems” could be attached to virtually anything that any president does at any time. Which would make all vacations impossible.

As for Biden, before leaving for his vacation he did what presidents do under these circumstances. He approved an emergency declaration for the affected regions of the country, and he authorized FEMA to coordinate disaster relief efforts. And the week before the storm hit, the Biden White House spoke to 26 state governors in afflicted regions, and he warned citizens to take precautionary measures because the coming storm is “dangerous and threatening.”

The seething panic at Fox News is how they typically respond to anything that Biden does or says. They are in a constant state of “Freak Out” no matter whether the issue is Biden helping Ukraine to defend itself from Russian invaders, or Biden falling off of his bicycle. It’s just what they do. For example, we’ll leave you with these previous outrage triggers that set off the snowflakes at Fox News…
