The Trump Effect: Ultra-MAGA PA Senate Candidate Refuses to Back GOP Nominee if She Loses

As the 2022 election cycle unfolds, Donald Trump continues to demonstrate his fetid influence on the Republican Party. His relentless fixation on nonexistent election fraud that he pretends cost him the 2020 election supersedes every other issue and is a prerequisite for receiving his toxic endorsement.

Donald Trump Effect

In Pennsylvania the candidate that Trump endorsed for the Senate, Mehmet Oz, has not been especially popular with GOP voters in the state. He is currently struggling to hang on to a tiny lead in a three way primary race. Oz is running against another Trump-fluffing candidate, Dave McCormick, and the formerly fringe, now surging, Trump sycophant, and January 6th insurrectionist, Kathy Barnette.

Barnette was recently interviewed by Breitbart “News” and was asked a common and easily answered political question. And yet, she still managed to get the answer wrong:

Breitbart: If you do not win tomorrow, do you intend to support the Republican nominee whoever it is?
Barnette: I have no intentions of supporting globalists. I believe we have ran out of room on this runway for this spaceship. I believe we have very little rope left to just roll the dice and we’ll see how it all works out on the other end. […] I don’t think we have room to just vote for any old warm body with an R next to their name.

That’s great news for the likely Democratic candidate, John Fetterman. Particularly because the GOP’s Yellow Brick Road in Pennsylvania is currently leading toward Oz. If Barnette loses, the Trump cultists who support her could succumb to the poppy fields and sleep through the general election in November. And the Republican Party would have no one to blame for this but Trump.

Trump has long demanded blind loyalty from his cult disciples. He insists that he is the only one who can fix America’s problems and that even other Republicans who aren’t unflinchingly faithful to him are cowards and/or RINOSs. He has even explicitly threatened the Party saying that if they don’t board the “Trump Train,” “Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 or ‘24.”

Trump has said that Barnette cannot win in the general election against Fetterman. But while Trump officially endorsed Oz, he also hedged his bet as he observed Barnette rising in the polls. He even praised her saying that if she won the primary “I will be behind her all the way.” Which is, surprisingly, more tolerant than Barnette herself who refuses to support her primary opponents if one of them should win.

Since Trump’s endorsement doesn’t seem to be pulling much weight in this race, Barnette’s supporters are more likely to follow her lead and sit out the general election. That’s a byproduct of Trump’s tunnel vision approach to party politics. It’s a “my way or the highway” strategy that is favored by aspiring authoritarian tyrants. And it is perfectly aligned with the Ultra-MAGA doctrine that President Biden aptly called the most extreme political organization that’s existed in recent American history.” So if Trump and his acolytes want to burn down the GOP, Democrats should just smile and say “please proceed.”

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Delivers a Righteous Rant Blasting Fox News for Advocating Starving Babies

The most predictable consequence of any crisis that America faces is that Fox News will waste no time trying to exploit it for purely partisan political purposes. And it won’t matter to Fox whether there is any truth to their exploitative endeavors, or how much rancid racism is ingrained in it.

Donald Trump, Immigrant, Child

The current shortage of baby formula in the U.S. is the latest example of how Fox manipulates the news to create division and fuel prejudice. Rather than explore ways to address the problem, or even to offer a rational debate on the subject, Fox News went directly to blaming President Biden and the innocent babies brought across the border by refugees fleeing poverty and violence.

RELATED: Biden Trashes Fox News Hack for ‘Garbage’ Question About Immigrant Children

The abhorrent positions expressed on Fox News reflect the bigotry against immigrants that Donald Trump has enabled and exacerbated. But Chris Hayes, host of “All In” on MSNBC, wasn’t taking it lightly. And he let loose with an impassioned monologue that effectively dismantled the noxious Fox News narrative (video below). Hayes began by saying that…

“We have reached the point where prominent figures in the conservative movement, including Republican politicians, office holders, and Fox News hosts, are calling for the United States to intentionally starve babies in its care. That is not hyperbole, and it’s not satire. It is the actual stated position now on the right.” […]

“Causes and solutions are not what the modern conservative movement really does when faced with a legitimate governing crisis. What they do is sniff around, like a dog after a carcass, to find the grossest way to demagogue the issue. And they have certainly found that here.”

Hayes then did something that is anathema to Fox News. He provided actual facts. He noted that there are less than a thousand infants in the custody of immigration authorities, and that they are required by law to feed them. That’s a miniscule percentage of the more than 3.7 million babies in America. So the argument that “illegal” babies (as Fox News disgustingly refers to them) are depriving American babies of formula is a deliberate and despicable lie. But that doesn’t stop Fox News from dispensing such hateful commentaries, and Hayes offers up a damning video compilation of them doing so.

Hayes also mocked the Fox News narrative that “The right solution to this formula crisis and shortage is to stop feeding the immigrant babies.” Obviously, if all of the formula provided to immigrant infants was redirected to Americans it wouldn’t make a dent in the problem. But, as previously noted, Fox News isn’t interested in solutions, just casting blame and manufacturing outrage. And while Fox News and heartless Republicans (yes, that’s redundant) are lying about the reasons for the formula shortage, the Biden administration is actually working to solve the problem.

In one especially loathsome part of the video that Hayes played, Fox hate monger Jesse Watters asked “Why are we feeding illegal babies ahead of American babies?” Just stop and think for moment about the repugnancy of that comment pitting one group of infants against another for life-saving sustenance. Hayes responded with apt revulsion saying, “Because they’re babies, you doofus!” He elaborated saying that…

“It would be a crime against humanity, and mass murder, to intentionally starve babies that you have in your custody, not to mention blatantly illegal. What is wrong with you?”

What is wrong with the cretins at Fox News is that they have no moral core. They are so fiercely fixated on their ultra-rightist political agenda that even the welfare of helpless infants is beyond their capacity to care. They would prefer to see migrant babies starve to death than to look realistically at the problem and seek collaborative solutions.

These allegedly “pro-life” Republicans and Fox News hacks would literally take the food from a baby’s mouth in order advance their crusade of cruelty. It’s what they have always done. They are just more open about it now.

When Biden Shows Compassion for Struggling Americans, Trump’s Spokes-Shill Calls Him a Sociopath

President Biden was in Chicago on Wednesday to give a speech at the 40th Annual Conference of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW). It was speech that affirmed his agenda, and that of the Democratic Party, that seeks to restore some semblance of fairness on behalf of working class Americans.

Click here to Tweet this article

Joe Biden, Tweet

Biden’s speech covered many of the tangible benefits already realized as a result of passage of the American Rescue Plan. He spoke of creating “8.3 million jobs in my first 15 months in office – a record.” He acknowledged that “the unemployment rate now stands at 3.6 percent, the fastest decline in unemployment at the start of any President’s term on record.” And he pointed out that…

“Under my predecessor, the great MAGA king, the deficit increased every single year he was President. The first year of my presidency – the first year, I reduced the deficit – literally reduced the deficit by $350 billion. First year. And this year – and this year, we’re on track to cut the federal deficit by 1 trillion 500 billion dollars – the biggest decline in debt ever in American history.”

Biden also spoke about the “Ultra-MAGA” plan proposed by Republicans that “raises taxes on 75 million American families” [and] “puts Social Security, Medicare … and Medicaid on the chopping block every five years.”

Sadly, albeit predictably, the only thing that the “Ultra-MAGA” crowd was able to focus on were the buzzwords and Biden’s compassionate demeanor. Trump himself was elated that Biden referred to him as “the Great MAGA King” which only affirms his lust for tyrannical power. But nowhere was the “Biden Derangement Syndrome” more apparent, and abhorrent, than in the reactions by the Republican National Committee and Donald Trump’s spokes-shill, Liz Harrington.

RELATED: Trump’s Spokeswoman Keeps Committing the Same Violations on Twitter that Got Trump Banned

The RNC watched a clip from Biden’s speech, which they posted to Twitter believing that his emotional tone of voice somehow made him look bad. Harrington agreed and retweeted the clip with her warped opinion that Biden’s heartfelt feelings were akin to sociopathy. Biden said…

“Remember those long lines you’d see on the television and people lining up in all kinds of vehicles just to get a box of food in their trunk? How quickly we forget people were hurting. And what did the MAGA crowd want to do? Forget it. Forget it. God, this is the United States of America. The idea that people would have to wait in line an hour or hour and a half to get a box of food in their trunk – it’s just unbelievable.”

And the RNC and Harrington replied…

So Harrington thinks that showing concern for the hardships that people endure, and wanting to help them, is “sociopathic”? That explains a lot. It explains why Republicans are so determined to provide benefits for the wealthy and for greedy corporations. Their definitions are severely distorted in a manner that makes them think that helping ordinary people is an abomination, and therefore, catering to millionaires and billionaires is an act of charity. Thanks for clearing that up, Liz.

BIDEN: Americans Have a Choice Between Two Very Different Sets of Values: Ultra-MAGA or Sanity

For the past few months President Biden’s approval ratings have been mired in the low 40s. It is a situation that has frustrated him and his fellow Democrats as the midterm elections approach. If his polling doesn’t improve it could portend severe losses and the nightmare prospect of Republicans assuming control of both houses of Congress.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

On Tuesday Biden addressed the issue that is paramount on the minds of most voters: the economy. He held a press conference where he spoke about the burdens faced by the American people due to inflation and other economic pressures (video below). His speech clearly laid out the differences between his agenda and that of the Republican Party. And one segment of the speech encapsulated the message that could turn around the prospects of Democrats if it were effectively communicated. Biden said that…

“Americans have a choice right now between two paths, reflecting two very different sets of values.

“My plan attacks inflation and grows the economy by lowering costs for working families, giving workers well-deserved raises, reducing the deficit by historic levels, and making big corporations and the very wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.

“The other path is the ultra-MAGA plan put forward by congressional Republicans to raise taxes on working families; lower the incomes of American workers; threaten the sacred programs Americans count on like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid; and give break after break to big corporations and billionaires — just like they did the last time they held power when their top priority was a reckless $2 trillion tax cut going — the majority of that going to the very wealthiest Americans, which ballooned the deficit, and not a penny of it was paid for.”

That’s it. Democrats are for “lowering costs for working families,” and “making big corporations and the very wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.” Republicans are for “the ultra-MAGA plan” that would lower incomes, threaten Social Security, and give breaks to the wealthy and big business.

If Democrats can drive home those points to the people, they will win handily in November. And Biden also noted that “Republicans have offered plenty of blame but not a single solution.” In fact, the GOP is not merely lacking solutions, they actively oppose them. They prefer to let the American people suffer so that they can use their hardship as a political weapon against Biden and the Democrats.

As an example of the two paths that Biden spoke of, a reporter asked the President about remarks made by Sen. Rick Scott of Florida. Scott said that…

“The most effective thing Joe Biden can do to solve the inflation crisis he created is resign. He’s the problem. […] Joe Biden is unwell. He’s unfit for office. He’s incoherent, incapacitated, and confused.”

And those are the sort of infantile insults that are the core of the GOP’s political strategy. Scott is also the chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. It’s his job to design the policy agenda for the party. And the plan that he announced recently would raise taxes on working families and sunset Social Security and Medicare.

In other words, Republicans are, as usual, promising to give every advantage to the rich, while giving only unfulfillable promises of trickling down to everyone else. It has never worked in the past, and it won’t work now. Democrats need to get that message out quickly and repeatedly for the next six months if they hope to prevail in November. And it wouldn’t hurt either if Congress and the Department of Justice moved more expeditiously on indicting Donald Trump.

Trump is Outraged Over the DHS Disinformation Board – Because He Spreads So Much of It

Last week the Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, announced to Congress that the DHS had established a new working group whose purpose is to monitor foreign sources of disinformation that pose a threat to national security. And within minutes Republicans and Fox News pundits blasted the Disinformation Governance Board (an admittedly discomforting name) as an Orwellian “Ministry of Truth” that would suppress free speech.

Click here to Tweet this article

Trump Lies

The predictably alarmist and fact-free response by the GOP and their own Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) deliberately misrepresented the mission of the new group. Their response was, in fact, disinformation, although not the sort that this group would be involved with. For the record, the group’s purpose was accurately described in a report by the Associated Press:

“The Department of Homeland Security is stepping up an effort to counter disinformation coming from Russia as well as misleading information that human smugglers circulate to target migrants hoping to travel to the U.S.-Mexico border. […] DHS said in its statement that the board will ‘protect privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties’ as part of its duties.”

Clearly the role of this operation is focused on foreign sources of disinformation and has explicitly ruled out any activities that would infringe on anyone’s civil liberties. Donald Trump, however and as always, was undeterred by reality, He was also afraid of being left out of any opportunity to grasp at media attention over manufactured crises. So Trump unleashed his own hysterically over-the-top criticism saying that…

“Just revealed that the Biden administration, on top of all the other horrible things happening to our Country, will be putting a longtime political operative in charge of censoring Free Speech. They don’t go after Facebook, Instagram, China’s TikTok, or any of the others that are so unhinged, corrupt, or Radical Left. Our Fake News Media refuses to cover the facts as our Country spirals into Hell!”

Trump’s complaint was posted on his TRUTH Social twitter clone and reposted by a cult follower on Twitter. Presumably because he knows that such disinformation will be eagerly embraced there. So he’s comfortable slandering Nina Jankowicz, who will be heading the Disinfo Board.

RELATED: Trump Declares that ‘I Am Not Going Back On Twitter’ After the Elon Musk Takeover

Jankowicz has a distinguished record as a disinformation expert. Her resume on Wikipedia notes that she “was a Fulbright fellow in Kyiv, working with the foreign ministry of Ukraine. She has also served as a disinformation fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center and as supervisor of the Russia and Belarus programs at the National Democratic Institute.”

White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, was asked about Jankowicz in a decidedly loaded question by Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich. Psaki defended her noting that the Board she is heading was “a continuation of work that began at the Department of Homeland Security in 2020 under former President Trump.” She also reiterated that the Board has a mandate to protect privacy and civil rights.

None of that, however, will prevent the disinformation disseminated by right-wing propagandists and professional liars like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, who tweeted “Now that the Biden regime has a Ministry of Truth, what’s next?” Or Tulsi Gabbard who tweeted that “Biden is just a front man,” asserting that Barack Obama is behind all of this. She was parroting Tucker Carlson who recently ranted about a speech Obama gave that warned against the perils of disinformation.

RELATED: OH NOES! Fox News Thinks Obama is Really Running the Government – And It’s Scaring Them Witless

It’s ironic that Republicans are so zealously opposed to the Biden administration working to counter disinformation, and falsely labeling it censorship. They are the ones who are actually passing laws to ban books, prohibit protesting, and roll back civil liberties. And they, along with their media accomplices, are the ones spreading so much disinformation about everything from COVID, to Russia, to immigration, to the economy, etc.

Perhaps the real reason they are so worried about this Disinfo Board is that they know that without disinformation they really have nothing to say.

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

Kevin McCarthy appears to be determined to undermine his chances of ever becoming Speaker of the House. This week it was reported that he had conversations with fellow Republicans after the January 6th insurrection wherein he revealed that he had considered urging Donald Trump to resign. It was reported that he told Rep. Liz Cheney that “I’ve had it with this guy. What he did is unacceptable. Nobody can defend that, and nobody should defend it.”

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

When asked about these reports by the press, McCarthy flatly insisted that no such conversations ever took place. Then, of course, the recordings of him saying precisely what was reported were released.

RELATED: Fox News Ignores Bombshell Recordings of McCarthy Urging Trump to Resign and Lying About It

After McCarthy was caught in this bald-faced lie he struggled to salvage what remained of his reputation, which wasn’t particularly good to be begin with. He managed to get Trump’s seal of approval largely on the strength of his rock-solid sucking up. However, that was before a second batch of recordings was released.

In the new recordings McCarthy is heard lambasting his insurrection supporting GOP colleagues, including Matt Gaetz, Mo Brooks, Lauren Boebert, Louie Gohmert, and Barry Moore. He correctly noted that Gaetz was “putting people in jeopardy,” and acknowledged that Trump’s insurrectionists “came prepared with rope, with everything else.”

Even worse for McCarthy, he is now having some trouble with the Republican Ministry Propaganda, Fox News. On Tuesday night Tucker Carlson chastised McCarthy savagely for his political heresy (video below). Carlson ranted that…

“Kevin McCarthy of California told his close friend Liz Cheney that he hoped the social media companies would censor more conservative Republicans in Congress. Donald Trump, the sitting president, had already been silenced by those companies, but McCarthy wanted wanted the tech oligarchs to do more to force disobedient lawmakers off the Internet. Quote, ‘Can’t they take their Twitter accounts away too?'”

McCarthy’s question about taking away Twitter accounts was triggered by the report of Alabama Rep. Barry Moore tweeting a racist comment about the police shooting of violent insurrectionist Ashli Babbitt as she tried to storm the Capitol. Moore portrayed that as “a black police officer that shot the white female veteran.” But this wasn’t about punishing “disobedient lawmakers.” It was about McCarthy’s justifiable concern that these sort of extremist tirades by the most radical members of his caucus could damage the GOP’s electoral prospects come November and, hence, his speakership aspirations.

Furthermore, it’s rather comical to hear Carlson whine about “tech oligarchs” after Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter, which Carlson celebrated with unbridled glee. Do you think he knows what “oligarch” means? Perhaps he could ask his boss, Rupert Murdoch.

RELATED: Trump Declares that ‘I Am Not Going Back On Twitter’ After the Elon Musk Takeover

But Carlson hadn’t finished his harangue. He went on to make some truly delusional characterizations of the rabidly conservative and staunchly Republican McCarthy as a flaming liberal who is aligned with the Democratic Party. Carlson fumed that…

“Those are the tape recorded words of congressman Kevin McCarthy. A man who in private, turns out, sounds like an MSNBC contributor. And yet, unless conservatives get their act together right away, Kevin McCarthy, or one of his highly liberal allies like Elise Stefanik, is very likely to be speaker of the House in January. That would mean we will have a Republican congress led by a puppet of the Democratic Party.”

WTF? If Carlson thinks that McCarthy and Stefanik are “highly liberal” his family should seriously consider having him committed. It would be interesting to hear what Carlson thinks are examples of McCarthy being a Democratic puppet, considering that he has opposed everything that Democrats have proposed with knee-jerk consistency. And Carlson’s assertion that Liz Cheney is a close friend of McCarthy ignores the fact that he supported her removal from the GOP leadership and replacement by the shameless Trump-fluffer, Stefanik.

This conflict between Carlson and McCarthy is representative of the disarray that is roiling the Republican Party. Members are torn between their worshipful sycophancy to Trump and their long-standing commitment to repugnant right-wing politics. So it’s a lose-lose. If they keep this up – and if Democrats cleverly encourage it – it will not bode for well for their midterm dreams of majorities in Congress. Maybe it’s Carlson who is helping the Democrats.

RNC Doubles Down on Cowardice, Cancels Debates to Shield Snowflake Trump From More Humiliation

It’s official! Most of the American people regard Donald Trump as a pitifully ignorant, barely coherent, megalomaniac whose mental deficiencies should preclude him from any consideration for high office. Or low office, for that matter. It was even affirmed in a Fox News poll. And now the Republican National Committee (RNC) has effectively concurred with that opinion. So that makes it unanimous. It is now universally agreed that Trump is an imbecile who requires protection from embarrassing himself and the groveling lickspittles in his cult/party.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Snowflakes

By declaring that they will prohibit any GOP presidential candidate from participating in campaign debates sponsored by the non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), the RNC is admitting what everyone who has been paying attention already knows: That Trump cannot compete intellectually with his Democratic opponents. He demonstrates that deficiency on a daily basis. He can’t even avoid making an asinine fool of himself when interviewed by Fox News suck-ups.

RELATED: Dementia-Addled Trump Descends Into Gibberish When Hannity Asks What He Would Do About Inflation

As reported by Politico, the RNC is whining that the CPD is “biased and has refused to enact simple and commonsense reforms to help ensure fair debates.” However, the reforms insisted on by the RNC are blatant capitulations to conceal Trump’s notorious weaknesses.

The RNC first floated the notion that they would chicken out of debates in January. News Corpse addressed that acknowledgment of fear in an article that can be reprised here without changing a single word. Therefore…

Cowardly Republican Party to Require Their Presidential Candidates to Boycott 2024 Debates

With the 2024 presidential election still nearly three years away, the Republican Party is already showing signs that they are afraid of engaging in a free and open discourse with their Democratic opponent. Never mind that they have spent two years maligning President Biden as “sleepy” and mentally unfit, it is the GOP that appears to be concerned about their own candidate’s ability to face off in an open forum.

The fear exhibited by the Republican Party is well warranted considering that their leading candidate is Donald Trump. For the past year Trump has been obsessively fixated on his having suffered a humiliating loss to Biden in 2020. It’s the only thing he talks about, despite having failed for more than a year – and sixty court cases – to provide a shred of evidence of his claims that the election was “rigged.” It is what fueled his deadly January 6th insurrection. And he is still twisting reality to insist that the “real insurrection” was on Election Day, November 3rd, 2020.

Consequently, the Republican National Committee (RNC) has announced that they intend to prohibit their Party’s candidate in 2024 from participating in the presidential debates that have been hosted for three decades by the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). The RNC sent a letter to the Commission stating that…

“[T]he RNC will initiate the process of amending the Rules of the Republican Party at our upcoming Winter Meeting to prohibit future Republican nominees from participating in CPD-sponsored debates.”

Make no mistake about it. This is not a quarrel over some rationally disputed format differences. The RNC’s “reforms” are all driven by complaints that crybaby Trump made in 2020 due to his cognitive inadequacies and inability to engage in a substantive dialogue. He proved that during the debates when he couldn’t refrain from interrupting and had to be told by Biden to “Shut up, man.”

The Republican National Committee is obviously scared, so they’re issuing ludicrous ultimatums if they don’t get their way. But the RNC’s proposals are intrusive and one-sided. They would impose on the neutrality of the Commission by impacting the composition of its members, dictating the dates of the debates, intervening in the selection of debate moderators, and enacting punishments for violations of the terms that that the RNC is insisting on.

Clearly the RNC is doing this on Trump’s behalf. No other candidate has objected to the CPD’s rules or fairness for thirty years. But the RNC is worried that without these reforms Trump would likely embarrass himself again, and he and the RNC know that. He has demonstrated that he cannot face any encounter that isn’t rigged to his advantage. It’s why he won’t submit to any interviews that aren’t conducted by his pals at Fox News or other similarly servile sycophants. He is mortally afraid of being challenged.

Trump recently canceled a phony “news” conference that he planned to hold on the anniversary of the January 6th insurrection. He also chickened out of his own challenge to debate any takers on his bogus claims about the 2020 election. And now he is directing his Republican Party apparatchiks to protect him from having to engage in an open and fair debate. It’s the coward’s way and, therefore, Trump’s way.

RELATED: OMG! Pathological Liar Trump Says He is ‘the Most Honest Human Being God Ever Created’

It’s not hard to imagine what sort of debate platform the RNC (aka Trump) would approve of. Probably something produced by One America News and moderated by bona fide Trump-fluffers like Steve Bannon, Sean Hannity, and his current spokes-shill, Liz Harrington. If the GOP carries out this threat, Democrats should buy network time and debate video clips of Trump’s past statements that feature his stupidity, his hatefulness, and his treasonous affinity for Vladimir Putin and other tyrants.

Comedy Cop Marjorie Taylor Greene Reports Jimmy Kimmel to Capitol Police for Telling a Joke

Marjorie Taylor Greene has made a name for herself as perhaps the most deranged and extremist member of an already extremist right-wing Republican caucus in the House of Representatives. Her frequent, and often bizarre, tirades have fueled division and hostility. Which was clearly her intention. It’s why she was suspended from Twitter for disseminating disinformation.

Click here to Tweet this article

Marjorie Taylor Greene, Gun

Now Greene has appointed herself as the Chief of the Comedy Police on Capitol Hill. Revealing herself to be the flakiest of GOP snowflakes, Greene lashed out against late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel in response to a joke that she regarded as a threat. So she did what any red-blooded American goofball would do. She reported him to the police. For the record, this is joke that triggered “Empty” Greene:

“This woman, ‘Klan Mom,’ is especially upset with three Republican senators who said they’ll vote ‘yes’ on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who is nominated for the Supreme Court. she tweeted ‘Murkowski, Collins, and Romney are pro-pedophile. They just voted for #KBJ.’ Wow. Where is Will Smith when you really need him?””

Greene was so perturbed by the nomination of an eminently qualified Black woman to the Supreme Court that she was compelled to viciously malign her Republican colleagues in the Senate. Here is Greene’s announcement of the police filing, and Kimmel’s succinct reply:

This would be good time to remind people that it was Greene who gave a speech advocating that Nancy Pelosi be executed as a traitor” Greene also complained about what she called Pelosi’s “gazpacho police” (she meant Gestapo).

And that was not the only time that Greene sought to associate Pelosi with Nazis. She previously compared the House rule requiring members to wear masks during the height of the pandemic to the Holocaust. Because protecting people from a deadly virus is exactly the same as murdering millions of innocent people by gas.

There is a stark irony about Greene reporting Kimmel to the Capitol Police. Her prior history with that law enforcement agency is fraught with hypocrisy and animus. She notoriously supported the deadly riots took place in Washington, D.C. on January 6th, where more than 140 officers were injured, and five subsequently died. And she was among a 21 Republicans who voted against honoring the Capitol Police with Congressional Gold Medals because she objected to referring to the insurrection as an insurrection.

Now Greene wants the Capitol Police to protect her from the ravages of rampaging humor. And yet, somehow, she thinks that people should still take her seriously. Yeah, that’ll happen. Maybe after Kimmel slaps her – with a lawsuit for false filing a false police report.

UPDATE: Kimmel replied to Greene’s probably phony police report in his Thursday night monologue. He files a phony police report of his own:

4REAL! GOP Senators Oppose Ketanji Brown Jackson for Supreme Court Because She’s Too Qualified

The Republican Party has for decades devoted itself to a platform of nothing more substantive than obstructing the good faith efforts of Democrats to advance the interests of the American people. They are proudly anti-government, which makes them a dreadfully poor choice for holding any position of power in the service of the public.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

The GOP (Greedy One Percent) is a party that is defined mainly by what they are against. They oppose taxes, immigration, the environment, consumer protections, and the rights of voters, minorities, women, and workers.

Now, as President Biden’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Ketanji Brown Jackson, is being confirmed by the Senate, the Republican members of the Judiciary Committee have revealed themselves to be steadfastly against justices who have the “drawbacks” of being experienced and qualified.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson of Fox News Says Biden Chose Ketanji Brown Jackson to ‘Destroy’ the Supreme Court

This characterization of Republican obstructionism is not hyperbole. It can be heard in their own words as they announce their intentions to vote against Judge Brown. The Daily Show has helpfully complied the statements of opposition by the Committee’s GOP blockaders, who shamelessly maligned Judge Jackson during the hearings, along with their utterly unreasonable reasons for doing so:

For the record, the Republicans featured in this video are John Cornyn, Josh Hawley, Mike Lee, Marsha Blackburn, Thom Tillis, Chuck Grassley, and Lindsey Graham. And they all delivered remarks that at first effusively praised Jackson’s qualifications and integrity, before announcing that they would vote against her. It’s almost as if Jackson’s qualifications and integrity were the reasons for their “no” vote. And in a sense that’s true.

Republicans are scared witless of intelligent and accomplished people like Jackson because it blows apart their malicious mission to portray them all as moochers, criminals, and degenerates. And they are so averse to the notion of confirming an admirable Black woman who was nominated by a Democratic president that they have allowed whatever measure of rationality, principle, or patriotism to leak out of their tiny, partisan, racist minds.

To date the vast majority of Republican senators are planning to vote against Jackson. Only three have have indicated that they will vote to confirm her (Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Mitt Romney). And what they get for their bipartisan integrity is rancid animosity from fellow Republicans like Marjorie Taylor Greene who tweeted…

That sort of repulsive defamation is standard operating procedure for the GOP. It’s also not surprising coming from the party of QAnon that has been so obsessed with crackpot conspiracy theories about child abuse and sex trafficking run out of pizza parlor basements. That’s seriously the devolutionary state of today’s Republican Party. And while The Daily Show is adept at ridiculing it, the comedy only goes so far when the reality is even worse.

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

The long festering and treasonous infatuation that Donald Trump has for Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is a well documented fact. It was apparent even before Trump’s occupation of the White House, an electoral catastrophe that Putin admits to having engineered.

Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin

Trump’s reliance on Putin can be seen as early as July of 2016 when he asked Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails. Trump then spent most of his single term in office taking Putin’s side over that of the U.S. Yet he still has the gall to file a preposterous lawsuit against Clinton (and several dozen others) claiming that his Russia-lust was “fake news.”

Now Trump has taken his adoration of Putin down to another new low. While Russia is currently engaged in a genocidal assault against America’s democratic ally Ukraine, Trump just asked Putin, our enemy’s leader, dig up dirt on our President and his family. And he even brags about this via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill. In this interview by a right-wing website Trump says that…

“As long as Putin is not exactly a fan of our country… Let him explain why did the mayor of Moscow’s wife give Joe Biden, both of them, $3.5 million? … So now I would think Putin would know the answer to that. I think he should release it. Now, you won’t get the answer from Ukraine.”

For the record, there is as much evidence of these allegations by Trump as there is of the election fraud he is still ranting about – NONE! These charges have been debunked repeatedly. Not that Trump cares about these facts, or any others.

In the meantime, Trump’s Russian pals are eager to embrace him and his mouthpieces on Fox News. Respected Russia watcher Julia Davis recently reported on how Russia’s state-run TV is re-airing Tucker Carlson’s program and parroting baseless charges against the Bidens:

“These days, [Russian] state television draws on a bounty of translated quotes almost exclusively from two Western voices: Tucker Carlson of Fox News and former U.S. President Donald J. Trump. [and that] Russia’s Defense Ministry released a colorful diagram, purporting to demonstrate that President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, is secretly bankrolling the Pentagon’s biolabs in Ukraine.”

So while Trump is clinging to, and praising, his Russian confederates, the Russian government and media is dispensing his propaganda. And they are not the least bit shy about this sordid relationship. Russian TV host Evgeny Popov recently opined that

“It is time for us, for our people, to call on the people of the United States to change the regime in the U.S. early, and to again help our partner Trump to become president.”

That’s a remarkable statement. First of all, Popov is advocating the “early” removal of President Biden from office by means that he doesn’t disclose. And then somehow replacing him with Trump, also by some mysterious mechanism. Popov also confesses that Trump is Russia’s “partner” whom they wish to help “again.” Presumably like they did in 2016 and, unsuccessfully, in 2020.

Now that Trump and Russia are openly talking about their nefarious partnership, it is all the more obvious why Trump would solicit Putin’s help in manufacturing scandals to malign Biden. It is an unsavory relationship that is also flagrantly unpatriotic. Yet both parties to this heinous hookup are proudly extolling it. And let’s not forget that Fox News and the Republican Party are firmly and comfortably behind all of it. You really have to wonder how any loyal American citizen can tolerate this blatant betrayal.
