Dear Leader Trump Brags that His MAGA Cult is Beating the Failing Republican Party

The looming threat to democracy in America posed by Donald Trump and his tyrannical aspirations continues to smolder among the glassy-eyed disciples who have pledged themselves to their malignant messiah. It’s a movement that resembles most closely the reigns of the fascistic tyrants that Trump idolizes and strives to emulate.

Donald Trump Rally, Sieg Heil

On Saturday Trump held the latest of his traveling salvation shows in Ohio, ostensibly to boost the struggling campaign of Republican senatorial candidate, J.D. Vance. But one would be hard pressed to find much expression of support for Vance during the hour long harangue. In fact, Trump’s introduction to Vance could hardly be characterized as complimentary when he said that “JD is kissing my ass, he wants my support so bad.”

RELATED: Wannabe Kingmaker Donald Trump’s Latest Endorsement (Vance) Reveals His Big Fat Flaming Ego

True to form, Trump spent nearly the entire time exalting himself, disparaging his foes, lying profusely, and vilifying America as “a nation in decline,” and awash in crime, corruption, and cultural depravity. To be fair, those are all subjects that he should be well acquainted with.

Trump’s allegiance to other Republicans is always conditioned on their demonstration of unflinching adoration and loyalty to him. So even though Vance has previously described Trump as “noxious,” “outrageous and offensive,” and “an idiot,” Trump can forgive him if he kneels to kiss his posterior.

However, at the same time Trump also used this rally speech to distance himself even farther from the Republican Party that he is supposed to be leading. At one point he explicitly distinguished support for him from that of the GOP saying that…

“We got 12 million more and we lost. We didn’t lose. We lost in their imagination. And we’re leading Biden now in all the polls and we are leading also all Republicans by record numbers. The Republicans are not doing too well.”

Let’s just set aside Trump’s initial concession that he lost the 2020 presidential election, and his clumsy attempt to recover and reiterate the “Big Lie” that he won. His criticism of the Republican Party seems to suggest that he isn’t actually affiliated with it. He is bragging that his MAGA cult is beating the GOP, and that the GOP, in contrast to whatever he is, is “not doing too well.”

That’s nothing new for Trump. He has been a fierce critic of his own party’s members and leadership from his first day’s as a candidate. It’s not because he is an independent thinker and places principle above party. It’s because he places himself above everything. He recently commented on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, that “Without the Rallies and, even more importantly, the Endorsements, most [Republicans] would lose.”

Trump is not nearly as popular as he thinks he is. His approval rating is a dismal 34%, well below President Biden at 45%. And a recent New York Times poll shows that voters prefer Biden over Trump by 45% to 42%, in a hypothetical 2024 matchup. What’s more, a poll in July found that “Close to half of Republican primary voters want someone other than former President Trump to run in 2024.” Perhaps it’s because of his rampant criminal activities.

LOL: Trump Thinks the FBI Search of His Mar-a-Lago Bunker Has Boosted GOP Electoral Prospects

If there is one thing that we can always rely on, it’s that Donald Trump will push a grossly distorted version of reality for any event that has exposed his faults or fallings, or might have negative consequences for him if viewed honestly. This tendency on Trump’s part to reshape reality can manifest in episodes as absurd as his using a sharpie to redraw a weather map to conform to the lie he told about a hurricane’s path.

Donald Trump

Last week the FBI executed a legally issued search warrant on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago compound in Palm Beach, Florida. Ever since, Trump and his media mouthpieces have been attempting to spin the search as an abuse of power by an out of control administration. Never mind that they have been utterly incapable of explaining why Trump had numerous boxes of classified materials that he denied having and refused to return. And their stream of bizarre excuses got more outlandish with each new attempt to exonerate Trump and demonize law enforcement.

RELATED: Trump’s TV Lawyer Keeps Contradicting His (Variable) Excuses for Hoarding Classified Materials

After having failed pitifully to deflect attention from his criminal activities, Trump is now trying to claim that they were justified because they allegedly have had a beneficial effect on the electoral prospects of his fellow Republicans. He posted on TRUTH Social, his miserably failing Twitter ripoff, that…

“Republicans could win many additional seats, both in the House & Senate, because of the strong backlash over the raid at Mat-a-Lago. Polls are showing that some lost Republican territory over the last number of weeks has been more than made up with the unannounced Break In by the FBI, which should never have happened!”

First of all, Trump needs to learn how to spell the name of his home/golf resort. It isn’t MAT-a-Lago. More to the point, he is either reading some very obscure polls that can’t be found online, or he’s making up the polling data in his comment. Here are some results from a more reputable source that shows Trump’s endorsed senate candidates trailing nationwide in swing states.

In Pennsylvania Fetterman is beating Oz by double digits. Same thing for Kelly over Masters in Arizona. Plus Ryan is ahead of Vance in Ohio, Warnock is ahead of Walker in Georgia, Demings just pulled ahead of Rubio in Florida, and Beasley is tied with Budd in North Carolina. So where is there any evidence of the backlash that Trump is yammering about?

What’s more, a new poll by POLITICO/Morning Consult shows that more Americans are supportive of the FBI’s search of Mar-a-Lago. A plurality said that there was evidence that Trump committed a crime. A majority (54%) said the search was conducted because of mishandling of classified information. And more respondents said that they approve of the search by 49% to 37% who disapproved.

The poll also found another sign that Trump’s backlash exists only in his twisted imagination. A mere 39% of registered voters said that Trump should run again in 2024. Which is a pretty low number for someone who is regarded as their party’s savior. For Biden, 28% said that he should run in 2024. Which is also a low number, but then Democrats are not blindly indoctrinated cult members who regard their political leaders as messiahs.

It’s still a long ways to November and much can happen to affect the election results. Good polling in August should not be viewed as a signal to relax and coast to a presumed victory. Democrats need to remain engaged and staunchly committed to working hard to convince persuadable voters to back progressives at every level of government. And they need to make sure that Democratic voters actually cast their ballots before or on election day. Their are historical headwinds that favor the party out of power during midterms, and Democrats must not spike the ball before they’re in the end zone.

Trump Fumes That Fox News has ‘Gone to the Dark Side’ and Purposely ‘Botched’ His Polling

One of the surest signs that someone has gone completely and irretrievably bonkers is when their psychoses manifest in paranoid outbursts directed at everyone, including their closest associates. And while Donald Trump was long ago recognized as being mentally unstable, his condition only seems to get worse with each passing day.

Donald Trump, Mask, Fox News

Clearly the pressure is getting Trump. Prosecutors in several jurisdictions are accumulating testimony and documentation of his seditious schemes to undermine democracy and overturn a fair election. The House Select Committing investigating the January 6th insurrection that he incited has exceeded expectations in exposing the ethical and criminal misconduct of Trump and his pitifully inept crime syndicate.

RELATED: REPORT: Trump is ‘Fixated’ on the January 6th Hearings and Obsessed with How He is Coming Across

On Tuesday morning Trump took to his miserably failing social media website, TRUTH Social, to vent his spleen regarding his ever increasing legal and political peril. And in this episode he berated his longtime Ministry of Disinformation (aka Fox News) for failing to be sufficiently worshipful. Trump posted the following condemnation of his pals at Fox and Friends…

“@foxandfriends just really botched my poll numbers, no doubt on purpose. That show has been terrible – gone to the ‘dark side.’ They quickly quote the big Turning Point Poll victory of almost 60 points over the number two Republican, and then hammer with outliers. Actually, almost all polls have me leading all Republicans & Biden BY A LOT. RINO Paul Ryan, one of the weakest and worst speakers EVER, must be running the place. Anyway, thank you to Turning Point, the crowd & ‘love’ was AMAZING!”

That’s an impressive heap of hogwash, even for Trump. He can’t simply have a rational disagreement with a segment on the program that he was once featured on weekly. So he leaps straight into “dark side” damnation of his former friends. He asserts, without evidence, that they are purposefully “botching” his polling numbers.

What Trump is freaking out about is how Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy reported Trump’s victory in a survey of potential 2024 Republican presidential candidates conducted at the ultra-rightist Turning Point conference in Tampa, Florida. Rather than stopping there, Doocy went on to mention that there were other polls that had different results (video below):

“Keep in mind, Turning Point, a group of young Republican conservative activists from all across the country. So you have got people from all across the country convening in Tampa. I’m thinking about that is a little different than a couple of other polls that we have seen over the last couple of weeks, too. Weeks ago in Florida, Blueprint polling did a poll, [Gov. Ron] DeSantis leads the former president in all age groupings.

“Then there was a University of New Hampshire poll in June. DeSantis actually led Trump, 39 to 37. And that New York Times/Sienna College poll that we’ve cited quite a few times, less than half of Republican voters backed Donald Trump as their preferred choice.”

Well, that was all it took to set Trump off. Never mind that Doocy was uncharacteristically correct. Trump felt compelled to lie, as usual, about leading in “almost all polls” against both DeSantis and President Biden. The truth is that Trump’s standing has severely withered in recent weeks. DeSantis is strongly challenging him in the GOP primary, and Biden is beating in him general election polls.

Nevertheless, Trump may have some cause to worry. There has been a noticeable shift toward DeSantis on Fox News lately. And Fox News magnate Rupert Murdoch’s media empire has recently stepped back from Trump in significant ways. His New York Post published an editorial that concluded by saying that Trump is “unworthy to be this country’s chief executive again.” And his Wall Street Journal castigated Trump’s action and inaction during the insurrection, saying that “he fed the mob’s anger and let the riot play out.”

RELATED: Rupert Murdoch’s Right-Wing New York Post Scorches Trump as ‘Unworthy’ to Be President

Trump’s descent into madness is sure to accelerate as more proof of his malicious malfeasance comes to light, and more of the rats on his vermin infested ship seek to jump overboard to save themselves. The closer Trump comes to indictments and prosecutions, the more frantically and wildly he will lash out at anyone and everyone in his warpath. For the entertainment value alone, it will be hard to find more captivating melodrama streaming on television this fall.

Trump Suffers Severe Cognitive Collapse, Claims that ‘Everyone Was Happy’ When He Was in Office

Only the most brainwashed disciples of his cult still believe that Donald Trump is mentally competent. He never was the “stable genius” that he laughably called himself. But his psychological decline appears to be picking up steam as his legal peril intensifies in conjunction with his rapidly deteriorating prospects for a return to the White House.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

On Friday Trump delivered a campaign speech in Las Vegas for a couple of Republican candidates in Nevada. It was typically rife with lies and unbridled outrage triggered by figments of his overactive imagination. He regurgitated his delusional election fraud claims and flung infantile insults at his political foes.

RELATED: The Crimes Trump Can (Should) Be Indicted For Now, According to Watergate Prosecutor and Others

In addition to his standard narcissistic rambling and psychotic sermonizing, Trump also unleashed the following hysterical observation pulled directly out of his asinine recollection of a warped version of the past:

“We have to stop fighting with each other and unify. That was happening during the greatest period, I believe, in our country’s history in many ways. Just before COVID came in from China – and that’s where it came from, Wuhan. It came from Wuhan. It can happen again. We were more unified just before that. Everybody was happy.”

Trump is right if what he means by “everybody” is his dimwitted followers and the rage-fueled voices in his head. However, a reality-based remembrance of the Trump years reveals a nation that was more unified in hatred of Trump than happiness. After all, there were unprecedented, massive protests from the very beginning of his term. He had record low approval ratings that never reached 50%. He lost the lost popular vote twice. He lost reelection by over seven million votes. And how could he forget that he was impeached twice? A recent poll shows that even 49% of Republicans don’t want him to run in 2024.

Does that sound like a nation that was happy and unified? Trump himself was never happy. He exhibited a constant state of outrage, throwing temper tantrums almost daily. And his animus was not reserved for Democrats. He regularly lashed out at Republicans who he deemed insufficiently worshipful.

Trump’s seething anger has never waned in the months since he was deported back to Mar-a-Lago. He is still spewing the furious tirades that embody the whole of his public life. Also in his Las Vegas address, Trump launched a bizarre attack on New York Attorney General Letitia James:

“In many cases, however, racist prosecutors should also be vigorously investigated for their brazen violation of federal civil rights laws. It’s happening to me with a racist attorney general in New York who campaigned solely on the fact that she would get Donald Trump. ‘I’m gonna get him.'”

James happens to be Black. So Trump regards her as racist because she’s investigating the crimes of a White, former reality TV game show host, who cheated on his taxes, lied about his real estate properties, and tried to overthrow the U.S. government. And his complaint that James campaigned on “get[ting] Donald Trump” doesn’t help his case. After all, she won. Which proves that it was a smart and relevant campaign issue, and that voters are also anxious to “get Trump.”

RELATED: WTF? Trump Brags that 67% of Americans Say He’s Responsible for the Violent January 6th Insurrection

These are just two of the most recent examples of Trump’s descent into madness. Calling a Black Attorney General racist, and recalling his contentious term in office as a time of unity, are about as far removed from reality as one can get. The only worse mental afflictions would be the ones that infect anyone who continues to support Trump.

Cassidy Hutchinson Testimony for the January 6th Committee Breaks TV Viewing Records

On Tuesday the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that Donald Trump incited held a previously unscheduled hearing. It featured jarring testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson, a top aide to Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, who Trump incredulously claimed he hardly knew.

Donald Trump

Hutchinson revealed that Trump was aware that weapons were present at his January 6th rally speech, and that he “didn’t f—ing care” because “they aren’t here to hurt me.” She also disclosed Trump’s seething anger that erupted into food flinging tantrums. And she told the Committee that White House lawyers were worried about criminal charges and that several members of Congress had sought pardons from Trump. These revelations and more have triggered Trump to whine about the Committee not presenting his side of the story. But that’s primarily because he has been too cowardly to show up and defend himself under oath, as all of the Republican witnesses have done.

RELATED: Crybaby Trump Slams the January 6th Committee For Nixing His Witnesses – Who Refused to Testify

Contrary to Trump’s repeated lying, the Committee’s televised hearings have been watched by millions of concerned Americans. And Hutchinson’s testimony drew even more viewers than all of the other sessions, with the exception of the first one that aired in primetime. In fact, it drew more viewers than all but the last of the NBA championship games. According to the Los Angeles Times

“Cassidy Hutchinson testimony set audience record for a daytime Jan. 6 hearing.”

“More than 13 million Americans tuned in to watch bombshell testimony from a former White House aide this week, making the Jan. 6 committee’s latest hearing its second-most-viewed thus far.

“The Tuesday afternoon hearing, which the committee announced just a day ahead of time, featured 25-year-old Cassidy Hutchinson, who served as an aide to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. Her dramatic testimony attracted 13,231,000 viewers across all major networks, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC, according to numbers from Nielsen, a ratings firm. This total topped the previous four hearings, which won audiences of about 10 million to 11 million people. The first Jan. 6 hearing, on June 9, drew about 20 million viewers, but it aired in prime time.”

Notably absent from the list of networks above is Fox News. That’s because it barely contributed to the viewing totals. Fox’s audience is apparently so attached to the lies that shape their alternative reality, that they will even tune out Fox News – the source of the lies that shape their alternative reality. Then, when the frightening truth-telling is over, they stream back to watch Sean Hannity and the network’s other propaganda pushers.

RELATED: Frightened Fox News Audience Tunes Out January 6th Hearings Even When They Air on Fox

The hearings are being closely followed by a majority (58%) of Americans. And they are having a noticeable impact on public opinion. When asked in a recent poll if “misleading Americans about the outcome of an election” is a crime, a massive majority of 69% said definitely/probably “Yes,” including 59% of Republicans. The numbers were almost identical when respondents were asked whether “the Department of Justice should bring legal action against” the offending elected officials.

What’s more, the L.A. Times quoted pollster Celinda Lake saying that…

“The support for the hearings has increased over time. And what is emerging very, very strongly from the hearings is not just that [former President] Trump was responsible, but there was a faction of the Republicans, Trump Republicans, who were responsible as well. And that this was about overturning the will of the people, overturning the elections.” […and that…]

“There is an evolving narrative. People see it as a crime, but they also see it as a criminal conspiracy. They demand accountability, and they’re very serious about what they consider accountability. And we are seeing these numbers increase quite dramatically over the course of the hearings.”

As for Trump, he has been behaving in precisely the deranged manner that is expected of such an emotionally stunted man-baby. Throughout the hearings the former reality TV game show host (who is psychotically obsessed with TV ratings) has flung flagrant falsehoods about the unprecedented audience the hearings have generated. His gaslighting lies included…

It remains among the most puzzling aspects of the Trump era that he can so shamelessly foster such easily provable lies, and that there are still people so indoctrinated into his cult that they believe him.

And that’s what makes him so dangerous. What’s next? Will Trump merely continue with his grifting and the fleecing of his followers? Will he attempt to start a civil war? Will he pass out cups of “Kool-Aid” at his next rally? Unfortunately, there is no way to predict what depths Trump might sink to. Nor is there any way to calculate the bottom. After trying to violently overthrow the U.S. government, He is literally capable of anything.

GOP Senator Tells Fox News that Support for Gun Reform in Polls is Because People are Stupid

This year there have been an appalling number of horrific mass shootings that have weighed heavily on the hearts of the nation and brought untold grief and loss to the communities in which they occurred. These tragedies are even more gut wrenching when children are the victims, as they were in Uvalde, Texas.

Fox News, Guns Logo

Yet somehow America’s representatives in Washington can’t manage to take affirmative action to address this epidemic of senseless bloodshed. And the fault lies squarely on Republicans who are beholden to the NRA-theists, and unwilling to even compromise on reforms that they agree on in principle.

RELATED: POLL: 44% of ‘Law and Order’ Republicans are Totally Cool with All the Mass Shootings in America

This resistance to advancing common sense solutions is ingrained in the GOP despite the overwhelming support for reforms in the populace at large. And that dichotomy was painfully illustrated in an interview on Fox News Sunday wherein Sen. Mike Lee of Utah degenerated into a babbling bowl of jelly as he struggled to justify his betrayal to his constituents. Fox’s Shannon Bream asked Lee about recent Fox News polling that “shows that there is a lot of strength behind some of these proposals at this time.” Bream then displayed a graphic of the poll’s findings…

Then Bream gave Lee an opportunity to respond, pointing out that “There is a lot of momentum, at least among the public sphere,” and asking “Are you out of step with your constituents?” Lee awkwardly dodged the question with a reply that was even worse than merely being out of step. He said that…

“First of all, what’s important is that we look out for the rights of constituents. Constituents are asked poll questions, they are not asked questions about specific language within legislative text. It’s the job of the lawmaker to look out for the interest and the rights of the law-abiding citizens they represent. And so with each of those provisions — I understand how they can get high popularity readings when they don’t define them. For example, you talk about banning assault weapons. There is no universal definition of what an assault rifle is. […] So that text does matter here, because it is that text that will determine whether we are intruding unduly on the rights of the American law-abiding citizen.”

To summarize Lee’s response, he believes the legislator’s job is to disregard what the public wants because they are too stupid to answer simple, straightforward questions in a poll. He even provides an example of how idiotic he thinks people are by asserting that they can’t form a coherent opinion about “assault weapons” because they don’t know what they are. Really?

Lee’s tortured doubletalk is just an attempt to evade the fact that he and his Republican confederates are purposefully betraying their constituents. The American people know what assault weapons are. They also know that legislation is written in legalese, but that that doesn’t make their opinions on these issues invalid. And they know that Lee is an arrogant horse’s ass who thinks he’s smarter than the dimwitted deplorables that he purports to represent.

For the record, the Fox News poll covered several aspects of the gun reform debate. And nearly every question revealed that significant majorities of the American people want substantive reforms. Here are a few of the poll’s findings…

  • “In general, a 56% majority believes that having tougher gun laws would reduce mass shootings in the United States, while 39% do not.”
  • “On specific gun proposals, voters are most supportive of requiring background checks on all gun buyers (88%) and improving enforcement of existing gun laws (84%).”
  • “Another 8 in 10 favor raising the legal age to buy assault weapons to 21 (82%), passing ‘red flag’ laws that allow police to take guns from people shown to be a danger (81%), background checks on buying ammunition (80%), mental health checks (78%), and raising the legal age to buy any gun to 21 (78%).”
  • “Seven in 10 favor banning high-capacity ammunition clips (70%), while slightly less (63%) support banning assault weapons.”
  • “The only proposals tested that lack majority support are allowing teachers to carry guns at schools (48%) and encouraging more citizens to carry a weapon (45%).”

With poll results like this – and from Fox News yet – the smug superiority of Republicans like Lee, who think that they know better than the people, is all the more repugnant. And it’s all the more obvious that their allegiance is to the gun industry lobbyists and the ammosexual perverts, rather than their own constituents.

RELATED: Ted Cruz Babbles that if All Firearms in America Were Eliminated there Would Be More Murders

Until that bond is broken, the United States will continue to suffer the most mass shootings of any nation on the planet. And the most effective way to break that bond is to vote out every Republican at every level of government. Hopefully voters will recognize that that is the only way they are ever likely to get true representation on this issue, as well as so many others, including healthcare, the environment, fair taxation, reproductive choice, civil liberties, and even the right to vote at all.

POLL: 44% of ‘Law and Order’ Republicans are Totally Cool with All the Mass Shootings in America

To any of those who still refuse to acknowledge that unfettered access to guns are an existential threat to American society, they should let this fact sink in: There have been thirty-three mass shootings in the United States just since the massacre in Uvalde, Texas, two weeks ago. And 246 mass shooting so far this year.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

These horrific crimes have resulted in untold pain and grief. Many of the victims have been children. The vast majority of the American people have had enough and are disgusted by the failure of their representatives to do something about it.

RELATED: Ted Cruz Babbles that if All Firearms in America Were Eliminated there Would Be More Murders

However, let’s be clear about who is obstructing the path to common sense solutions that most Americans support. A new CBS News poll has affirmed what every previous survey has found to be gumming up the works. When asked if mass shootings are “something we have to accept,” 44% of Republicans say that it is. Contrast that with only 15% of Democrats and 27% of Independents who believe that such slaughter is tolerable.

What’s more, a huge majority (72%) of Americans believe that mass shootings are preventable. But again, the partisan divide shows that that is broken up into 85% of Democrats and only 56% of Republicans. Meanwhile, 60% of voters overall say that laws covering gun sales should be more strict. And 46% say that the U.S. would be safer with fewer guns. And when asked why the U.S. has so many more mass shootings than many other countries, a majority (54%) say it’s due to the greater availability of guns.

So why on Earth would 44% of Republicans say that mass shootings are an acceptable part of living in America? They are, in affect, advocating tolerance of domestic terrorism. Would they say the same thing about other crimes. Are rapes just a “something we have to accept”” What about child abuse? Bank robberies? Crashing jets into office towers?

Obviously Republicans are not so hostile to laws addressing those crimes. Nor do they object to laws prohibiting reproductive choice, or immigration, or banning books about race or slavery. So what’s the difference? Is it that they only want to avoid laws that regulate gun ownership?

The GOP has a perverse interpretation of “law and order.” They have a distinctly political criteria for when it should be observed. For instance, when it comes to Hillary Clinton, Republicans want to “lock her up,” despite the fact that they can’t identify a single law that she has broken. But the same Republicans want to set free the January 6th insurrectionists who violently stormed the Capitol to help Donald Trump overturn the 2020 presidential election.

RELATED: POLL: Half of Republicans are Psycho Trump Cultists Who Believe Capitol Riots Were ‘Peaceful’

While 44% of mass shooting tolerant Republicans is a significant chunk of the GOP, they are a miniscule portion of the American population. Registered Republicans are a mere 27% of the electorate. Which means that they are less than 13% of the U.S. population at large. And yet, due to the preposterous, and wholly undemocratic idiosyncrasies of American politics (i.e. the electoral College, senatorial representation, gerrymandered congressional districts), they have an oversized influence on what laws can be passed.

Unfortunately, that means that nothing substantive will change with regard to guns (or abortion, or racism, or voting rights, or fair taxation, or the environment, etc.) until that imbalance is corrected by either reforming the political system (including the Constitution), or electing more Democrats. Let’s hope that there is some progress on the latter this coming November.

Fox News Lies that Poll Shows a ‘Majority’ of Americans Blame Biden for Inflation – It Doesn’t!

These are difficult times for America as it struggles with both internal and external problems. Russia’s genocidal assault on Ukraine has embroiled the world in an unprovoked and otherwise unnecessary conflict that has impacts far beyond the borders of those countries. Meanwhile, while the numbers decline, the COVID pandemic continues to pose risks for vulnerable communities. And even though employment and wages have increased significantly in the past year, inflation has has taken a bite out of those gains.

Fox News Lies

Consequently, President Biden’s favorability has suffered despite his having executed almost flawlessly throughout the challenges that his administration is facing. You might think that the adversarial Biden bashers at Fox News would be satisfied just reporting on some of the polls where his numbers have declined. But then, you don’t know Fox News.

RELATED: Biden Brilliantly Debunks the Lies By Trump and Fox News About Energy Production in America

The fabulists at Fox are never satisfied with merely disseminating bad news for Democrats when they could be spreading flagrant falsehoods instead. Take, for example, this story that Fox News did on Tuesday about an NBC News poll…

Fox News, Joe Biden, Inflation

Alert viewers would immediately notice that Fox News apparently doesn’t know what the word “majority” means. What their graphic shows is actually that a plurality – not a majority – of the poll’s respondents blame Biden for inflation. The majority (57%) actually do not blame Biden. They blame other factors, including COVID-19, corporations, and Russia. Which proves that the American people are much smarter than Fox News.

If you were to approach any of those who answered that Biden’s policies were responsible for inflation, and ask them which policies they meant, it’s a safe bet that they couldn’t identify a single one. That’s because the real factors fueling inflation are indeed the pandemic and greedy corporations that are raking in record profits while whining about some higher costs. They just pass those costs on to consumers and use the windfall to buy back their stock, making them even richer.

For its part, Fox News is happy to brazenly mislead their already dimwitted audience. The guest host, Trace Gallagher, introduced the segment saying that…

“A recent poll shows a majority blame President Biden for the ballooning inflation, and not Russia’s invasion which the President has been using as his scapegoat.”

For the record, Biden has correctly cited a number of factors that have contributed to higher inflation, not just the Russian war against Ukraine. More to the point, Gallagher’s intro proves that the “majority” misstatement wasn’t just a sloppy “mistake” by a graphics editor. It was articulated on air by the program’s host. This was obviously an editorial decision that Fox News made to deliberately lie to their audience in order to disparage Biden.

Of Course, that’s standard operating procedure for Fox News. But it’s not often that their glaring dishonesty is exposed in the very graphics they are using to illustrate their lies.

Trump’s Irrelevance is Increasing, as are His Pitifully Delusional Attempts to Pretend it’s Not

Donald Trump has resumed his scheduling of the MAGA cult rallies that bring together America’s Most Gullible. He’s already held four of them this year. But the attendance and enthusiasm that he once enjoyed has visibly declined as his repetitive shtick gets tedious and unbearable, even for his glassy-eyed disciples.

Donald Trump Pacifier Fox

There are reports that the crowds at Trump’s ego-fluffing affairs are shrinking, with many of his fickle flock leaving while he’s still on stage raving about his alleged genius or ranting about being a poor, wretched victim. He posted four tweets (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) whining that the “Fake News” was misreporting the “massive crowd” at his latest rally in Georgia. For example…

We had a massive crowd last night in Georgia, but as usual, the Fake News Media absolutely refuses to show it. People are estimating 25,000 to 35,000 people.”

And…

Massive crowd last night in Georgia even despite the cold weather, the enthusiasm was unbelievable. David Perdue, running against horrendous Governor Brian Kemp, who let the Election be Rigged and Stolen, is seeing a very big surge.”

However, Newsweek collected reports from correspondents on the ground who told a very different story:

“[T]here’s probably no more than 5,000 people here [and that] People keep leaving during Trump’s speech. It’s cold and windy and there’s not much enthusiasm.”

In addition to that delusional misrepresentation of reality, Trump’s assertions about Republican gubernatorial candidate David Perdue, who Trump endorsed in fit of vengeance after the incumbent governor, Brian Kemp, refused to go along with Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged,” are wildly off kilter. Trump tweeted that…

“David Perdue, who is a wonderful man, and incredible family, and really got screwed by Kemp, is the only candidate in this race who can beat Stacey ‘the hoax’ Abrams this November. And you know the reason for that is because Trump voters — MAGA — Trump voters will not go out and vote for Kemp. They’re not going to vote. And let’s say it’s gonna be a close election. I happen to think that Georgia is a very red state. I think it’s red as hell”

Trump is effectively encouraging a voter boycott by Trumpian Republicans if his anointed candidate loses in the GOP primary. “Okay, fine,” say Georgia’s Democrats. Trump has already exposed himself to legal liabilities for trying to intimidate Georgia’s elected officials into “finding” (i.e. fabricating) enough votes for him to overturn the election in the state. And that’s only one of the civil and criminal cases that are pending against him.

Unfortunately for Trump, Perdue, who lost his Senate seat last year to Democrat Jon Ossoff, isn’t turning out to be the savior that Trump was hoping for. In the latest poll of the race between Perdue and Kemp, Perdue is trailing by double digits.

So Trump’s influence in electoral endorsements is decidedly weakening. And his appeal to the cult members who populate his rallies is declining. That leaves only his social media presence that has been curtailed by his having been banned from most of the major platforms (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube). And the effort to launch his own Twitter clone is such a failure that even he doesn’t use it. And yet he is still trying desperately to present an image of success amidst his impotent flops. It’s almost too pathetic to watch. Almost.

UPDATE: An April 9 rally in North Carolina also failed to draw much attendance. Even Trump’s cult followers are bored with his repetitive shtick.

Fox News Floats Ludicrous New Criteria For Confirming Biden’s Supreme Court Nominees

It shouldn’t surprise anyone to learn that Fox News has been resolutely opposed to President Biden’s nomination of Ketanji Brown Jackson who, when confirmed, will be the first Black woman to ever sit on the Supreme Court. From the outset of the nomination Fox News has maliciously maligned Jackson in a campaign of character assassination that was rife with the same racism and misogyny with which they attack Vice-President Kamala Harris, another strong, intelligent, accomplished Black woman.

Laura Ingraham, Fox News, Goofy

On Wednesday night Fox’s Senior White Nationalist, Laura Ingraham, delivered a typically crackpot commentary explaining why she thinks Republicans have a a “sacred duty” to vote against Jackson. Her argument included the invention of a brand new criteria for confirming Supreme Court justices that she crafted specifically for Biden:

“Rushing to approve a Supreme Court nominee of a President with, what, an approval rating that always seems to be hitting new lows – that my friends, is a violation of the basic sacred duty that each and every senator, himself or herself, has agreed to. That means every word of the oath that they took to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution – that is an oath that is just as sacred as the oath that the nominee has to swear to as well.”

WHUT? So now the approval polling of a president making a nomination to the Supreme Court must be taken into consideration before voting to confirm? Obviously Ingraham has only latched onto that because Biden’s polling has been negatively impacted by a deadly pandemic and a genocidal war, neither of which he caused or has much much control over. But regardless of the reasons for his low ratings, they have never been used before in the consideration of a Supreme Court appointment.

Ingraham is awkwardly trying to construct a justification for Republican senators to vote against Jackson. Other than the bigotry and naked partisanship they already employ. But she hasn’t really thought this through.

The approval rating for Donald Trump at the time he nominated three justices to the Court was even lower than Biden’s now. Biden is currently at 45% according to the latest Fox News poll. However, according to Gallup, when Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett his approval rating was 43%. For Neil Gorsuch it was 41%. And for Brett Kavanaugh Trump was languishing at only 40%.

What’s more, the approval rating for Jackson herself is higher than for all of Trump’s nominees. According to a Fox News poll

“A 56% majority would vote to confirm [Jackson], the highest of any nominee since the question was first asked on a Fox News poll in 2005. […]

“Justice Amy Coney Barrett received an approval rating of 50 percent during her confirmation hearings in 2020, while 45 percent approved of Justice Neil Gorsuch in 2017, and only 40 percent said they would vote to confirm Justice Brett Kavanaugh in 2018.”

The Senate hearings for Jackson have revealed two things most prominently: 1) She is eminently qualified and possessing of extraordinary judicial intellect and temperament, and 2) The Republican members of the Judiciary Committee (particularly Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, and Lindsey Graham) are asinine blowhards seeking only to venerate themselves and score airtime on Fox News.

That motive remains operational still. Thursday morning Steve Marshall, the Republican Attorney General of Alabama, appeared before the Committee as a witness against Jackson. He engaged in in this pathetic exchange with Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse:

Whitehouse: Is Joseph R. Biden of Delaware the duly elected and lawfully serving President of the United States of America?
Marshall: “He is the president of our country.”
Whitehouse: Is he the duly elected and lawfully serving president of the United States?”
Marshall: “He is the president of our country.”
Whitehouse: Are you answering that omitting the language “duly elected and lawfully serving” purposefully?
Marshall: “I’m answering the question. He is the president.”
Whitehouse: You have no view if he is duly elected or lawfully serving?
Marshall: “I’m telling you he’s the president of the United States.”

For the record, Marshall is among the Trump coup plotters responsible for the January 6th insurrection in Washington, D.C. According to the Alabama Political Reporter

“Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall won’t say where he was on the days leading up to and following the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Marshall leads the Republican Attorneys General Association’s dark-money nonprofit Rule of Law Defense Fund, which paid for robocalls detailing when and where citizens should meet. […]

“Marshall on Dec. 9, 2020, announced Alabama would join a Texas lawsuit asking the United States Supreme Court to overturn election results in four states, which the Supreme Court rejected.”

So these cretins still can’t let go of Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged.” That tells you everything you need to know about the right-wing, Trump-fluffing, GOP, their efforts to sink the Jackson nomination, and pretty much everything else on their future agenda.
