The Best Reasons to Never Vote for a Republican – By Joe Biden, Matt Gaetz, and Marjorie Taylor Green

Not so long ago, the Republican Party had members who could be perceived as patriotic and willing to join Democrats in order to advance the interests of the American people. It wasn’t always an easy alliance, but it was one that produced incremental progress in an environment of cooperation. That was all BT (Before Trump).

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

In the era of Trump the GOP has devolved into a cult that worships their Dear Leader above all else. Legislation, policy, commitment to the needs of the people, and even respect for the law, have all been scrapped in favor of fawning sheepishly over an ignoramous with aspirations of authoritarian tyranny. In today’s Republican Party you either suck up to Trump or get cast out as a lying “RINO” who never had what it takes.

The putrefaction of a once potent political party hasn’t gone unnoticed by the American people. And that includes President Biden, who posted a merciless meme that featured the GOP’s rising scars articulating their atrocious agenda for the future should they regain power. It begins appropriately with Trump spawn Eric declaring ominously that the GOP “is no longer the Republican Party. It’s the Trump Party”

It isn’t surprising that Republicans are the best messengers for their dystopian perspective of what a GOP future would look like. They aren’t the least bit shy about articulating just how abominable they are. A Fox News host recently criticized the sentence Steve Bannon received as “tyranny and total bullshit.” Then immediately insisted that it was what Republicans needed to do. She was affirmatively advocating the “tyranny and bullshit” agenda.

SEE: Fox News on Steve Bannon Sentence: It’s Tyranny and Total BS – And We Need to Do It

Another honest spokesperson for the vileness of the GOP is Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. On Friday she appeared on a Trumpian video pod to layout what she regarded as the GOP’s plan if they manage to get a majority in the House. She said that…

“We are going to be leading a revolution in Congress. And that is to put a referendum on the Democrat Party. A referendum through investigation and accountability. Joe Biden and his family will be a top target. And so will the CDC, the FBI, the Department of Justice, Department of Education, Homeland Security, and many other federal government entities that have abused power and done so much damage to our country. And it’s time to start, starting in January of 2023.”

So Greene’s priorities are to engage in endless investigations and persecutions of Biden, his family, and other Democrats, based on nothing but her QAnon/Wingnut hallucinations. There was nothing in that rant that was remotely associated with any of the priorities of the American people. And Greene isn’t just a House backbencher. She is a member that GOP minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, has said would have a place in leadership. What’s more, Greene has speculated about herself becoming the GOP leader, and how she would rule.

These Trumpy Republicans are currently in the ascendance in the party. And we can rest assured that they mean what they say. And for that reason we need to make sure that voters are aware of what the GOP has in store. They are literally aiming to cause palpable harm to the nation. And they aren’t afraid to say so. Which makes them the best spokespersons for why people must vote for Democrats up and down the ballot this November 8.

Tucker Carlson Dumps All Over the GOP ‘Commitment to America’ – ‘There’s Nothing Real In It’

Just like Leap Year, Tucker Carlson of Fox News says something that is marginally coherent once every four years or so. Although when he does it is usually spiked with some ulterior political motive or the result of an accidental slip into the realm of reality. More often than not Carlson is steadfastly fixated on his white supremacist, pro-authoritarian points of view.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

On Monday Carlson diverged from his customary knee-jerk, Trump-fluffing screed to shower some pretty harsh criticism on the Republican Party he ordinarily props up. The tongue lashing delivered by Tuckums concerned the recently released “Commitment to America” – the GOP House minority leader Kevin McCarthy’s hastily cobbled together policy statement that he intended to boost the Republican’s waning prospects for the midterm election. Releasing this pitifully shallow rehash of the 1994 Newt Gingrich “Contract with America” just six weeks before the election was a clear act of desperation on McCarthy’s part.

RELATED: REALLY? Tucker Carlson Accuses Kevin McCarthy of Being ‘a Puppet of the Democratic Party’

McCarthy’s “commitment” included such vague banalities as creating “an economy that’s strong,” “a nation that’s safe,” “a future that’s built on freedom” and “a government that’s accountable.” Those goals, however, are diametrically opposed to what Republicans have done in practice. Particularly their record on producing weak economies and foregoing accountability for their lawless leaders (e.g. Donald Trump). Carlson appears to agree. He raged at Republicans saying that…

“House Republicans just spelled out what they’re running on. It’s a document called the ‘Commitment to America.’ It’s fine. Probably not much in it you disagree with. Have you heard of it? No. You probably haven’t. You probably haven’t read it. Nobody really cares. Why? Because there’s nothing real in it.

“There’s not a single word in that document about the attacks on the American family that you see every day. That’s at the center of most people’s concerns. How are my kids? Will they have a life that resembles mine? That was called the American Dream. Does it still exist? Will they be able to afford to live the way they grew up? Will they have the opportunities that we had? No! People are upset about that. Why wouldn’t they be? But nobody says it.”

So Carlson is worried about whether the GOP plan will permit his children to enjoy the elitist life of leisure that he was born into. He can’t grasp that his questions make no sense to a low-income family that isn’t especially anxious for their kids to have a life that resembles theirs.

The crux of Carlson’s opposition to McCarthy’s folly is that it doesn’t restore the kind of America that Carlson hankers for. It’s an America that looks backwards to the one his parents lived in. Which is one where women and minorities were still second-class citizens who weren’t threatening the rightful superiority of his racial and social stratum. And he’s likewise worried that McCarthy’s plan doesn’t openly embrace the autocratic principles of his heroes, such as Vladimir Putin and Viktor Orbán.

SEE: Tucker Carlson of Fox News Rattles Off His Ridiculous Reasons for Why You Shouldn’t Hate Putin and Fox News Fascinista, Tucker Carlson, Cozies Up to Hungary’s Authoritarian PM Orbán

Another reason that Carlson might be averse to the McCarthy Doctrine is that he has an agenda that is more focused on political vengeance. He would rather see the GOP go after President Biden and the Democrats than to bother with the mechanics of governing. Which would put him in alignment with GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz who has explicitly adopted the revenge platform. “If we don’t engage in impeachment inquiries,” Gaetz rants, “our voters will feel betrayed “ So Gaetz concludes that “it should be investigations first, policy … as a far, far diminished priority.”

That also happens to be the overtly revenge-centered agenda of Donald Trump. At least when he isn’t whining about having lost the 2020 presidential election. The Trump Cult is laser focused on the issues that matter most to the cult devotees: Hunter Biden, COVID mandates, immigrants, Hillary Clinton’s emails, and Joe Biden’s opposition to right-wing fascists. And if that’s their closing argument for the 2022 midterms, election day can’t come soon enough for Democrats.

Matt Gaetz Gripes that Women Supporting Roe v Wade are Too Smart and Too Old – For Him?

In one of this year’s most glaring self-owns, insurrectionist representative Matt Gaetz (FL-QAnon) posted a tweet that he surely thought would devastate the liberals that he hates so passionately. But, as usual, he could not have been more mistaken.

Click here to Tweet this article

Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene

On Monday an unauthorized release of a draft opinion by the conservative wing of the Supreme Court indicated that they would be overturning the abortion precedent set by the Roe v Wade ruling fifty years ago. The Republican Party immediately sought to ignore the harm done to the rights of American women, and liberty in general, and instead focused on portraying themselves as victims (again) of a plot to embarrass them by revealing to the public what they are actually doing.

While there were innumerable bad takes on this news by rightist partisans in politics and the press, none were as cringeworthy as the one from Matt Gaetz who tweeted…

“How many of the women rallying against overturning Roe are over-educated, under-loved millennials who sadly return from protests to a lonely microwave dinner with their cats, and no bumble matches?”

Seriously? Let’s set aside for the moment that Gaetz is disparaging adult women who had the audacity to get an education. What were they thinking? What’s truly nauseating about this comment is that Gaetz is exposing his own heinous predilection for girls with limited education because they were still in high school. He is currently under investigation for allegedly having sex with an underage girl who he reportedly paid and transported across state lines.

RELATED: Has Fox News Blacklisted the Sex Scandal Plagued Trump Toady Matt Gaetz?

Like his cult messiah, Donald Trump, Gaetz “loves the poorly educated.” Presumably that’s because they are the only ones who will fall for his bullsh*t. He is explicitly criticizing backers of Roe v Wade because of their academic achievement. That’s something that he appears to regard as a personality flaw that he discourages among his constituents. He’s also opposed to microwave ovens and pets, which further illustrates just how out of touch he is with most Americans.

Gaetz ought to be more concerned with “How many of the women rallying against overturning Roe” live in his district. Nationally, the support for Roe v Wade is more than 69%. Perhaps Gaetz is worried about millions of women – and men – rallying to defend reproductive rights because he couldn’t get a handful of supporters to show up at recent protest that he organized with fellow insurrectionist, Marjorie Taylor Greene.

RELATED: Snowflakes Gaetz, Greene, et al, Flee Their Paltry Pro-Insurrection Press Conference

The spectacle of a man who is being investigated for unlawful sex with a minor attempting to mock reproductive rights supporters for being educated adults is, sadly, all too typical of the Republican Party. And no one exemplifies that perversion better than Matt Gaetz. And for some puzzling reason, he does publicly as if he’s proud of it.

Matt Gaetz Berates an FBI Official, Over Hunter Biden’s Laptop, Who Has Nothing To Do With It

Among the most disturbingly ignorant Republican members of Congress is Florida’s devout Trump-fluffer and alleged child sex trafficker, Matt Gaetz. Gaetz is notorious for his rabid defense of Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged,” and his crackpot QAnon conspiracy theories.

Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene

On Tuesday Gaetz participated in the House Judiciary Committee’s interview of the FBI’s Cyber Division director, Bryan Vorndran. And predictably, Gaetz turned his time into a circus act that focused exclusively on the wholly fabricated GOP “scandal” surrounding the whereabouts of a laptop computer that belonged to President Biden’s son, Hunter. It’s a subject that the witness had no jurisdiction over or knowledge of. But that didn’t stop Gaetz from wasting everyone’s time and making a fool of himself.

RELATED: Matt Gaetz Inadvertently (Though Correctly) Calls Donald Trump ‘Addled’

Mr. Vorndran tried to tell Gaetz that his office wasn’t involved in anything related to the laptop. “We can do this back-and-forth for the next couple of minutes,” Vorndran said to no avail, but “I don’t have any information about the Hunter Biden laptop.” What follows is a portion of the exchange between Gaetz and Vorndran (video below):

Gaetz: So where is it? The laptop?
Vorndran: I’m not here to talk about the laptop. I’m here to talk about the FBI’s Cyber program.
Gaetz: You are the assistant director of FBI Cyber. I want to know where Hunter Biden’s laptop is. Where is it?
Vorndran: Sir, I don’t know that answer.
Gaetz: That is astonishing to me. Has FBI Cyber assessed whether or not Hunter Biden’s laptop could be a point of vulnerability, allowing America’s enemies to hurt our country?
Vorndran: The FBI’s Cyber program is based off of what is codified in Title 18, Section 1030, a code which talks about computer intrusions using nefarious intent.
Gaetz: In December 2019 they turned over this laptop to the FBI. And now you’re telling me right here is that, as the assistant director of FBI Cyber, you don’t know where this is after it was turned over to you three years ago?
Vorndran: That’s an accurate statement.
Gaetz: How are Americans supposed to trust that you can protect us from the next Colonial Pipeline if it seems that you can’t locate a laptop that was given to you three years ago from the first family potentially creating vulnerabilities for our country?
Vorndran: It’s not in the realm of my responsibilities to deal with the questions you’re asking.
Gaetz: But that is shocking that you wouldn’t, as the assistant director of Cyber, know whether or not there are international business deals, kickbacks, shakedowns, that are on this laptop that would make the First Family suspect to some sort of compromise. Mr. Assistant Director, have you assessed whether the First Family is compromised as a result of the Hunter Biden laptop?
Vorndran: As a representative of the FBI Cyber program it is not within the realm of my responsibilities.to deal with the questions that you’re asking me.

WOW! Gaetz is “astonished” and “shocked” that a man who has nothing whatsoever to do with a particular investigation doesn’t have any information about that investigation. And even after repeatedly telling Gaetz that his office is not involved in anything that might have to do with the laptop, Gaetz just repeats his ridiculously irrelevant questions with ever more bewilderment and feigned fury.

The FBI’s Cyber division deals with cybersecurity matters such as online hacking. So Gaetz blowing up at Vorndran is like getting angry at an account at Ford who is unable to tell him how a transmission works. That’s not his job.

For the record, the pseudo-scandal that Gaetz is so obsessed with concerns already debunked charges that Hunter Biden was paid $3.5 million by the wife of Moscow’s former mayor. It’s a charge that Donald Trump has tried to whip up into a wingnut frenzy. But it’s also a charge that has been investigated and found to have no merit.

RELATED: Connecting the Dots: Trump Begs Putin for Dirt on Biden While Russia Calls Trump Their Partner

PolitiFact did a deep dive on the matter and found that it was nothing more than a rumor started by Senate Republicans. Their allegations contained a key flaw concerning the Rosemont Seneca Thornton investment firm that was cited in a GOP Senate report. However, it was pointed out by Hunter Biden’s lawyer George Mesires that…

“‘Hunter Biden had no interest in and was not a co-founder of Rosemont Seneca Thornton, so the claim that he was paid $3.5 million is false,’ Mesires said in an email.”

This is typical of the sort of hyperactive and warped imagination that produces so much of Gaetz’s garbage pile of asinine accusations. In fact, Gaetz is so far over the top that he has been banned from Fox News. Imagine that. The network that has no problem with cozying up to pathological liar Donald Trump, as well as low lifes like Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, QAnon, Alex Jones, and Vladimir Putin, considers Gaetz to be below their standards. That’s really saying something.

Matt Gaetz Inadvertently (Though Correctly) Calls Donald Trump ‘Addled’

The House Armed Services Committee held a hearing with the top Pentagon brass on Wednesday. The purpose was ostensibly to get more information about the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan after twenty years of of conflict. However, as is often the case, some of the members of the committee were only there to malign President Biden, the American military, and its leaders.

Fox News, Matt Gaetz

For reasons that are inconceivable, Matt Gaetz (FL-QAnon) is a member of the committee, despite having no military experience or education whatsoever. And as a confirmed ultra-partisan bomb thrower, he spent his allotted time making baseless accusations and impotent insults and threats.

In the process of his pitifully uninformed ranting, Gaetz demonstrated just what a buffoon he is, and what an embarrassment to the Congress and the district he supposedly represents (when he isn’t off on pathetic political junkets with his BFF Marjorie Taylor Green). Gaetz, a trust fund baby who never served, scolded Gen. Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, saying that…

“You said yesterday that you weren’t gonna resign when senators asked you this question. And I believe you guys probably won’t resign. You seem to be very happy failing up over there. But if we didn’t have a president that was so addled, you all would be fired. Because that is what you deserve. You have let down people who wear the uniform in my district and all around the country and you’re far more interested in what your perception is and how people think about you in insider Washington books than you care about winning.”

A congressman who is currently under investigation for sex trafficking and soliciting of a minor probably shouldn’t be calling for the resignations of others. That’s particularly true when he has no foundation for making such an audacious demand.

However, in his harangue Gaetz appears to be oblivious to the attack he’s making on his messiah and mentor, Donald Trump. By asserting that Milley would have been fired “if we didn’t have a president that was so addled,” Gaetz is actually agreeing with all of those who have observed that Trump is dangerously crazy. That’s because it was Trump who promoted Milley to the chairmanship of the Joint Chiefs of Staff back in December of 2018. He was confirmed by the GOP led Senate on a bipartisan vote of 89 to 1 (Jeff Merkley, a Democrat, was the sole “no” vote). Milley then served in that role for the remaining two years of Trump’s presidency, and continues under Biden.

So if anyone deserves the “blame” for Milley’s service, it’s Trump. And according to Gaetz, Trump was too addled to fire him. What’s more, Gaetz’s assertion that Milley was more interested in his perception is pure projection on Gaetz’s part. He was a whore to Fox News for most of his brief tenure in congress. Although that seems to have come to an end since the breaking of his sex scandal. Apparently Gaetz is now even too toxic for Fox News.

Despite having been “cancelled” by Fox News, Gaetz is still sucking up to the network and its biggest stars. Recently Gaetz embraced Tucker Carlson and his racist “Great White Replacement” theory, saying that Carlson was “correct” and that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), who called for Fox to fire Carlson, were the racists. It makes you wonder who it is that is really addled, doesn’t it?

Matt Gaetz Embraces Tucker Carlson’s Vulgar and Racist ‘Great Replacement Theory’ Rant

Florida’s QAnon supporting, alleged sex trafficking congressman, Matt Gaetz, seems more determined than ever to dig himself deeper into a pit of scandal with his every public utterance. After all, this is the cretin whose perversions, lies and criminality are so toxic that even Fox News has blacklisted him.

Matt Gaetz, Prison

Gaetz’s legal and ethical problems may have temporarily receded from the headlines, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still drowning in the muck of his swampiness. The Daily Beast is reporting that his defensive maneuvers have revealed a “scorched earth” strategy that indicates just how worried he is about his future:

“Gaetz is personally represented by Marc Mukasey, who has defended the Trump Organization in several high-profile disputes […] Separately, the Gaetz campaign—Friends of Matt Gaetz—also looked north when in June it retained New York-based trial lawyer Marc Fernich. Fernich’s client list includes child sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, and convicted sex trafficker Keith Raniere.”

You’ve got to be pretty desperate to hire the same lawyers who represented Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein – and lost. In the meantime, Gaetz is reaching out to the Trump cultists who are the foundation of his moral and financial support. On Saturday he tweeted a shout-out to the Fox News Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson. His message was a blatant embrace of a Nazi-inspired campaign to foment fear and racist violence:

“@TuckerCarlson is CORRECT about Replacement Theory as he explains what is happening to America.

The ADL is a racist organization.”

Tucker Carlson has been peddling the white replacement theory for months. It’s an abhorrent lie that propounds a plot, often attributed to Jews, that foreigners are being imported to overwhelm the White population socially and politically.

In a recent tirade by Carlson, he specifically targeted George Soros, a billionaire philanthropist who is one of the right’s favorite foils. He was also a Jewish refugee from Nazi anti-Semitism. Carlson’s harangue focused on Soros’ efforts to help resettle our Afghan allies in the United States, which Carlson said was just another means of replacing his White majority with foreign “invaders”.

Shortly afterwards the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) called for Fox News to fire Carlson. That led to this vulgar exchange between Carlson and former Fox News host Megyn Kelly:

Kelly: Today there’s more blowback on whether you’ve been pushing for the “Great Replacement Theory.” You said that this was gonna happen on your show last night. Sure enough, the ADL comes out and comes after you.
Carlson: F**k them! What liars.

When Gaetz tweeted that “TuckerCarlson is CORRECT about Replacement Theory,” this crude and bigoted boorishness is what he was responding to. And his appended charge that “The ADL is a racist organization,” is a nauseating and baseless insult to an organization that has been fighting discrimination and racism for over a hundred years. However, it is precisely what you would expect from a desperate and hateful sleazeball who is struggling to stay out of prison.

Snowflakes Gaetz, Greene, et al, Flee Their Paltry Pro-Insurrection Press Conference

On Capitol Hill Tuesday morning a bipartisan committee initiated hearings on the January 6th insurrection incited by Donald Trump. The first session (which Trump to upstage) focused on the testimony of heroic police officers who were among the victims of the riotous mobs that hoped to disrupt the functions of Congress and to overturn the will of the American people. They failed.

Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene

Also on Tuesday morning, another less ethical group of representatives staged their own partisan sideshow in a pitiful attempt to draw attention away from the hearings. They also failed. However, the Republican Pro-Insurrection Caucus press conference did manage to score a mention in the congressional hearing by Sgt. Aquilino Gonell, who noted that…

We’ve got people right now in front of the Justice Department asking to release some of the very same people to be released, even though we’re testifying about the trauma and the agony and everything that happened to us. It’s pathetic, and they shouldn’t be elected officials anymore.”

The people that Sgt. Gonell was referring to at the Justice Department were the cream of the GOP’s Lunatic Brigade: Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Louis Gohmert, and Paul Gosar. They gathered together in support of the domestic terrorists who tried to shut down the U.S. Congress as it was carrying out its constitutional duty to certify the election. It did not go well for them.

First of all, it’s clear that the press didn’t appear to be particularly interested. The StormTrumpers were outnumbered by protesters and security. The protesters made sure to get their signs in front of the cameras with messages like “Pedophiles for Trump” and “Traitors and Rapists Sit down.” And a lone whistleblower added some audio activism to the affair.

Facing this handful of “intolerant leftists” (as one of the GOP shills called them) was apparently too much for the Trumpublicans. So they turned tail and bravely ran away. All the while complaining about having been “shut down.” Which is ironic considering that they didn’t care at all about their own Capitol being shut down by the cretins they were there to defend.

Notice that none of the protesters vandalized any property or assaulted anyone with flagpoles or bear mace. This is what a peaceful protest actually looks like. And it didn’t take much to send the QAnon Quartet scampering off. Greene tried to show some gumption. “To the guy that’s blowing the whistle,” she gamely declared, “we are not deterred.” Then she immediately deterred herself into her getaway car.

Gaetz was followed by a persistent reporter, Lauren Windsor, asking a perfectly relevant question. “Are you a pedophile, Congressman Gaetz” she aske at least eleven times. And with all of those opportunities, Gaetz didn’t bother to deny it even once.

This fiasco comes on the heels of another recent catastrophic political event headlined by Gaetz and Greene. They went on a national “Put America First” tour. But they forgot to put their financial house in order and, as a result

“Their campaigns and joint fundraising committee reported a combined loss of $342,000 within two months after kicking off their tour on 7 May at The Villages in Florida while pulling in less than $60,000 in contributions, according to Federal Election Commission reports reviewed by the publication.”

If this is any indication of how the 2022 congressional mid-term election is going, Republicans may be in a heap of trouble. But that is no reason for Democrats to get complacent. The future of American democracy is on the table, and those who value it need to work harder than ever to keep and expand the Democratic majorities in the House and Senate. While episodes like this are entertaining and encouraging, they must not lead to letting down our guard. The stakes have never been higher.

‘I Watched It On TV,’ Cries Trump ‘Big Lie’ Believer at America First Rally

This is what we’re up against, folks. Friday marked the launch of the “America First Tour” headlined by Donald Trump’s most zealous fans, Matt Gaetz (who is currently the subject of a federal investigation for sex trafficking and corruption) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (who is a devoutly committed disciple of QAnon). The affair was held at a retirement community in Florida known for being a bastion of ultra-conservativism.

Fox News, QAnon Logo

CNN’s Donie O’Sullivan attended the event and interviewed some of the Deplorables gathered to cheer on the Dyspeptic Duo. In one particularly disturbing segment, O’Sullivan entered into this dialog with a couple of Trump’s true “Big Lie” believers:

Q: You guys genuinely believe the election was stolen?
A: Uh huh.
Q: If you believe that that’s true, isn’t that horrible?
A: Yes. I know it is. Is it horrible that we would even be in the situation to even think that?
Q: But it’s false.
A: No it is not. Why would they have all those ballots hidden under tables? Why did that man drive that truck all the way across state lines with ballots?
Q: The ballots under tables thing with Giuliani in Georgia, that’s all been proven to be false.
A: It has not. I watched it on TV.

Well, that settles it then. She saw it on TV. And as the whole civilized world knows, everything on TV is one hundred percent true. Why just a few days ago I saw Tucker Carlson reveal that Barack Obama is going to force you to get your kids vaccinated. Tucker wouldn’t lie, would he?

It’s a safe bet that the couple in that clip keep their television tuned to Fox News (or Newsmax, or OAN) twenty-four hours a day. And they believe every lie that they broadcast. In this case, they are referring to a thoroughly debunked story about allegedly phony ballots that were hidden under a desk at a Georgia counting facility. The charge was that these ballots were later retrieved and counted after all the observers were sent home and they were all votes for Joe Biden.

That story was feverishly spread by most of the right-wing media. Trump, of course, also included it in his delusional tales of a “stolen” election. However, the story has indeed been proven to be unequivocally false. The video they claim to have “watched on TV” shows the normal process of ballot counting with independent observers present and no irregularities whatsoever.

The problem here is that there is no way to convince the couple in the video that they have bought into a lie and are being taken for fools. They will continue to believe what they think they saw on TV, even if shown the evidence that it’s false. And they aren’t alone. They are just the latest representatives of the cult that has grown like a fungus around the lies disseminated by Fox News and their ilk.

If we hope to halt the totalitarian aspirations of Trump and his Republican Autocratic Party (like the execrable Lindsey Graham who just declared that the GOP cannot “move forward” without Trump), we have to stop it at its source. And that means monitoring and challenging the propaganda dispensed by the Trumpists and their Ministry of Disinformation (aka Fox News) at every opportunity.

Has Fox News Blacklisted the Sex Scandal Plagued Trump Toady Matt Gaetz?

The political prejudices of Fox News are getting tested by current events that put the right-wing “news” network in a decidedly uncomfortable position. It was revealed last month that Republican representative Matt Gaetz (Q-FL) is under investigation by the Department of Justice for serious felonies including sex trafficking of a minor, prostitution, drug use, and financial corruption.

Fox News, Matt Gaetz

As a result of these charges, Fox News has had to adapt their ordinarily knee-jerk, pro-GOP editorial mission to keep from awkwardly aligning itself with the perversion and criminality for which Gaetz is accused. Never mind that Fox News didn’t have any trouble aligning itself with such criminality when it was committed by the serial sexual predator, Donald Trump. Gaetz isn’t Trump and doesn’t get the same measure of absolution from the Trump Ministry of Propaganda.

On March 30, 2021, Gaetz was interviewed on Fox News by Tucker Carlson. The entire segment was provided as an opportunity for Gaetz to defend himself from the allegations against him. Fox’s participation in this self-serving dialogue is hardly unexpected considering the network’s affinity for Gaetz as one of Trump’s most zealous supporters among Republicans in Congress. But even at the conclusion of that interview, Carlson exclaimed that it was “one of the weirdest interviews I’ve ever conducted.” And it would be hard to disagree.

However, that interview with Carlson was also the last time that Gaetz has appeared on Fox News, or even been the subject of any sympathetic stories. That was three weeks ago. This is the network that has shamelessly defended Derek Chauvin, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Capitol insurrectionists, the Confederate flag, QAnon, Alex Jones, and Vladimir Putin, to name a few. But they now appear to be reluctant to defend Gaetz. That says something about the depth of the muck that Gaetz is wallowing in.

Gaetz’s GOP colleagues in Congress are equally afraid to be associated with him. Only a couple of his closest friends in the House – Jim Jordan and Marjorie Taylor Greene – have bothered to stick up for him. Even Trump offered tepid support. It remains to be seen if the Fox News blackout will continue for any length of time. But the fact that they have snubbed him in this, his hour of need, is a significant rejection that has to hurt. Especially when everyone else that would be considered an ally has been running for the hills.

Trump Puppet Matt Gaetz Parrots His Incendiary ‘They’re Coming For You’ Spiel

The old saying in political circles that warns you to stop digging if you find yourself in a hole, is being utterly ignored by Republican hothead Matt Gaetz (Q-FL). Despite his being the subject of federal investigations into sex trafficking of a minor, prostitution, drug use, and financial corruption, Gaetz is continuing to mouth off in public to the delight of his prosecutors.

Matt Gaetz, Prison

Not surprisingly, Gaetz is ranting in a manner that will be familiar to anyone who has paid attention to Donald Trump for the past five years. His oblivious defiance in the face of increasing legal peril is reminiscent of the former guy’s stubborn refusal to accept reality even after two impeachments, dozens of civil and criminal lawsuits, and numerous former associates ratting him out.

Gaetz had the audacity to deliver a speech at – where else – the Trump National Doral golf resort in Florida before a group of “Women for America First.” And if it wasn’t bad enough that an accused sex offender is speaking before an audience of women, the group was also one of the organizers of the deadly January 6th insurrection in Washington, D.C.

The speech began with a shout out to his fiancée, Ginger Luckey (a stripper name if there ever was one). And it went downhill from there. In a reference to the “stop the steal,” Big Lie rhetoric that triggered the riots in the Capitol, Gaetz told the crowd that “They can never steal what America felt like under Donald Trump.” Which is true. The nation will not soon forget what it felt like to have a narcissistic, pathological lying, racist, mishandling a pandemic that took the lives of more than half a million Americans due to his negligence, incompetence, and deliberate malfeasance.

Gaetz went on to brand himself as a demagogue. “Firebrands,” he bragged, “don’t retreat. Especially when the battle for the soul of our country calls.” And then Gaetz blatantly plagiarized his Messiah-a-Lago (video below) saying that…

“When you see the leaks and the lies and the falsehoods and the smears, when you see the anonymous sources and insiders forecasting my demise, know this: They aren’t really coming for me. They’re coming for you. I’m just in the way.”

Sound familiar?

First of all, Gaetz needs to be corrected as to who “they” are coming after. It’s him, not the delusional deplorables he would like to misdirect the Feds toward. Gaetz just wants to infect his sheep with his own fear so that they fight back on his behalf. That’s the way of cowards like Gaetz and Trump.

It’s notable that the language Gaetz used is exactly the same as that Trump used back on December 18, 2019 (and several times thereafter), in an attempt to unify his cult followers in a confederacy of victimhood. It’s a tactic perfected by fascist regimes to incite “Us vs Them” divisiveness and political enmity. Trump has employed this destructive strategy from the start of his brief political career in order to inflame his glassy-eyed disciples with the hatred that seethes from his every pore.

Trump has never cared about the welfare of the nation or its people. He is only concerned with himself and how he can fleece the dimwits he’s managed to bamboozle. And Gaetz has apparently dived head first into the very same pattern of con artistry. Does he really think that strategy will bring him salvation? Well, it doesn’t matter so long as it brings in the bucks.
