WHUT? On Fox News RNC Chair Cites GOP Scare Tactics as Proof that Democrats are Scaring People

With the 2022 midterm election now less than two months away, the Republican Party is piling on the lies, pseudo-scandals, personal insults, and fear mongering. The projections for control of the House and Senate have been trending toward the Democrats ever since the Supreme Court’s Dobb’s decision that effectively reversed Roe vs Wade. Plus, Democrats have had numerous legislative achievements in the past few months.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

Consequently, the GOP, and their Ministry of Propaganda (aka Fox News) have been reprising their customary campaign of contrivances such as caravans of immigrants, rampant crime, and economic apocalypse. It’s their predictable, knee jerk response whenever an election is nearing and their prospects are dimming.

On Fox News Monday morning, host Dana Perino interviewed the chair of the Republican National Committee, Ronna McDaniel. Perino led into her question with a video clip of former President Bill Clinton commenting accurately on how Republicans use fear to motivate their base. Which led to a rather bizarre exchange between Perino and McDaniel…

Clinton (video): The Republicans always close well. Why? Because they find some new way to scare the living daylights out of swing voters about something. That’s what they did in 2021 when they made critical race theory sound worse than smallpox.
Perino: The Democrats have been trying to scare people as well.
McDaniel: News flash, Bill. Your party’s doing that just fine. We don’t need to help you with that as well. You’re scaring voters everywhere. With open borders. I mean, just last month 2,000 pounds of fentanyl came across our border. That could kill 500,000,000 people. We’re coming into Halloween. Every mom in the country right now is worried. What if this gets into my kid’s Halloween basket? The rainbow fentanyl.

The first notable observation in that segment is that neither Perino nor McDaniel disputed what Clinton said. That might be because it’s indisputably true. However they did attempt to “whatabout” his remarks in a peculiar way. The examples that McDaniel gave of Democratic fear mongering were actually the long established scare tactics of the Republican Party. It isn’t Democrats who use open borders and drug smuggling to frighten voters. That’s the GOP. So McDaniel was just inadvertently affirming Clinton’s political analysis. In fact, she was engaging in it.

What’s more, while missing her target by a mile, McDaniel also managed to make a mess of whatever she was trying say. First of all, she complained that thousands of pounds of fentanyl were confiscated at the border last month. That is actually evidence of how well the Biden administration is policing the border and preventing illegal drug smuggling. Secondly, McDaniel claimed that the fentanyl seized could have killed 500,000,000 million people. Which is about 200,000,000 more people than there are in the U.S.

Perhaps the most preposterous of her comments was the utterly baseless suggestion that “Every mom in the country right now is worried” that their kids will be getting fentanyl treats for Halloween. Does she have any proof that even a handful of moms are worried about that, much less all of them? And what makes her think that drug dealers are plotting to give their products away for free in order to commit the mass poisoning of America’s children?

If this is the high point of the Republican’s political gamesmanship, Democrats have even less to worry about come November than previously thought. However, given the intellectual capacity of the average GOP voter, there is still a risk that they could turn out and make some gains. So Democrats can’t relax or take anything for granted. Democracy itself is riding on these midterms. And Republicans are still pouring on the craziness that exemplifies their party today…

And let’s not forget the Fear Monger in Chief for the Republican Party, Donald Trump…

Stupid Fox News Question: Should Liberal Martha’s Vineyard Celebs Open Their Homes to Migrants?

For the past couple of weeks, Republican governors Greg Abbott of Texas and and Ron DeSantis of Florida have been staging one of the most inhumane political stunts in decades. By transporting migrants in their states to New York, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C., they are demonstrating both a severe lack of compassion and overt disrespect for the law.

Go Fox Yourself

This heartless and illegal abuse of innocent and vulnerable refugees was intended to embarrass the Democratic politicians in those destinations. As it turned out, the receiving Democratic officials and the local residents brought honor to themselves and the nation by welcoming the refugees with open arms, food, medical care, and other resources to help these victims of Republican exploitation, including children, adjust to having been used as pawns in a political game.

RELATED: WOW! Sean Hannity and Ted Cruz Agree that Trafficking Migrants Across State Lines is Illegal

Meanwhile, Fox News played their customary role as apologists for right-wing atrocities. They barely covered the heartwarming hospitality that the refugees received from their hosts. But Fox did attempt to distort reality by featuring the rare critics who complained about the migrants.

Even worse, Fox News tried to manufacture controversy where there was none. In an especially dishonest and disgusting story, Fox News sent their crackhead news team to Martha’s Vineyard to stir up trouble. The story headlined “We asked Martha’s Vineyard celebs if they’d open their homes to migrants. Here’s how they responded,” was a typically hollow, and transparently hostile, piece of vile presstitution. It began…

“Former President Barack Obama and several other high-profile Democrats who own homes on Martha’s Vineyard have remained silent on whether they will open up their homes to provide comfort to any illegal immigrants sent to the island by Republican governors.” […]

“In addition, Fox News Digital reached out to representatives for prominent public supporters of President Biden who own homes on Martha’s Vineyard but did not receive a response. Those Martha’s Vineyard residents include singer James Taylor, director Spike Lee and comedian David Letterman, who all reportedly have homes on the island.”

The premise of this story was both absurd and repugnant. No wonder they didn’t get a single response from those they tried to contact. And yet, they went ahead with the non-story anyway.

What ever made Fox News think that it was appropriate to expect private citizens to house refugees who were trafficked illegally from other states? Fox News never asked Republican politicians or right-wing celebrities to take in the babies of women forced to carry them to term when Republican laws prohibited them from making their own healthcare and reproductive decisions. Nor was anyone asked by Fox News to house low income families who became homeless as a result of the callousness of conservative policies. Nor did Fox News ever ask wealthy notables to pay for medicine or hospitalization for Americans who were denied care due to the GOP’s servility to Big Pharma and other corporate interests.

Yet for some reason, Fox is suddenly interested in whether liberal individuals alone should shoulder a burden that is properly attributed to the federal government. The U.S. immigration system has been broken for a long time. And it’s the Republicans who have refused to participate in finding a bipartisan solution. Their answer now is to spend millions of dollars trafficking human victims around the country in order to create chaos.

RELATED: WOW! Sean Hannity and Ted Cruz Agree that Trafficking Migrants Across State Lines is Illegal

Just think of the value those millions of dollars could have provided if spent on something useful, helpful, and driven by compassion rather than political malice. But then, that would have required Republicans to have a modicum of morality and decency. And that was just too much to ask of them. Surely Fox News would never ask it.

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.

RELATED: LOL: Sean Hannity Thinks He’s Helping Trump By Scrolling a Long List of His Crimes on Fox News

So as usual, Trump is living in a alternative universe of delusion and self-glorification. Which is conveniently in sync with his cult devotees. Like the this who was ecstatic that her savior spoke to her…

Al Franken Shows How to Make Republican Hacks Squirm By Using this One Little Trick – Truth!

CNN has not exactly been dignifying itself lately. It’s new management appears to be shifting its editorial direction more to either an artificial neutrality or downright conservativism. They have fired honest journalists like Brian Stelter and John Harwood. And sources say they are pushing remaining personnel to be more “Republican-friendly.”

Al Franken, GOP Elephant

However, on Saturday one of the remaining bright lights at the network, Jim Acosta, invited Al Franken on to debate GOP strategist April Stewart about the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. To put it mildly, it didn’t go well for Stewart.

RELATED: Fox News Putin Puppet Tucker Carlson’s False Flag Fiction Gets Ripped By CNN’s Jim Acosta

The discussion began with Acosta playing a video of Vice-President Kamala Harris lamenting that the current Supreme Court is “an activist Court” as exemplified by its decision overturning Roe v Wade. Acosta then turned to Franken, who pointed out that if the Court’s reputation was suffering, it was because of Republicans disrespect for the institution. Franken cited as examples how they refused to take up the nomination of Merrick Garland due to the proximity of a presidential election, which was a year away, but then confirmed Amy Coney Barrett within a few weeks of an election.

Franken began by stating flatly and factually the circumstances that led to the confirmations of Justices Gorsuch and Barrett as having been “stolen.” What followed was an exchange that exposed the utter vacancy of the GOP’s position. Stewart attempted to revise history with a false argument about why Garland was snubbed. But Franken wasn’t having it (video below)

Franken: They’ve stolen two seats: the one that Merrick Garland wasn’t given a hearing for, and the one that Coney Barrett, where she was seated a week before the election. That destroyed the legitimacy of the court.
Stewart: To throw some accuracy in what Al said there, Merrick Garland was held up because we had divided government, a Democrat in the White House, and Republicans in control…
Franken: That’s not what McConnell said.
Stewart: But that’s the way historically this has been. When you’re in close to an election year and you have divided government….
Franken: No, that’s not the way it’s been historically done.
Stewart: When you have divided government, there typically is inclination to…
Franken: Tell me when this happened before. Tell me when it happened before.

Stewart ignored Franken’s question and tried repeatedly to push a narrative that had no resemblance to reality. And each time she did, Franken interrupted to ask her again to simply “tell me when it happened before.” She never could. And finally, Franken explained to her why she couldn’t cite another example…

Stewart: I can’t give you an exact example when this happened in the past.
Franken: You know why you can’t? Because it hasn’t happened before.

Stewart’s humiliating stammering as she sought to spread a wholly fictional account of the Republicans’ deliberate poisoning of the Supreme Court’s credibility is emblematic of how little regard the GOP has for the Court and the Constitution. But Franken’s dogged defense of historical honesty is a master class in how to handle right-wing propagandists. Hopefully we will see more of that as the midterm election advances – and beyond.

Fox News Publishes Brutal NY Times Story that a GOP House ‘Could Plunge US and World Into Chaos’

In recent weeks Donald Trump has been sinking ever farther into the quicksand of his inbred criminality. The Department of Justice is investigating his theft of highly sensitive national security materials and hoarding them at his Mar-a-Lago bunker. A federal grand jury is probing his phony “Save America” PAC. A Georgia prosecutor is close to indicting him for election interference. And these don’t even include his real estate and tax fraud matters.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

As the shroud of corruption envelopes him, some of Trump’s associates and accomplices may be getting antsy about continuing to stand behind him for fear they won’t see the oncoming bus. They have been testing the waters to see if they can safely distance themselves from what is becoming increasingly obvious is a crumbling foundation of flagrant felonies. And among the nervous nellies are some of the folks at Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda, Fox News.

RELATED: Trump Threatens to Sue Fox News For Airing Lincoln Project Ad that Reveals the Victims of His Grifting

On Friday the Fox News website published an article that was mostly a re-post of an in-depth analysis of the Republican Party’s descent into Trumpian madness. The NY Times article profiled a handful of GOP House candidates who have consumed copious quantities of Trump’s Kool-Aid. And the conclusion was that these Ultra-MAGA extremists threatened to “plunge the U.S. and the world into ‘chaos.'” Fox’s re-post of the article said that…

“In his report, published Thursday, [New York Times congressional correspondent Jonathan] Weisman claimed that the potential influx of new GOP lawmakers that have ‘fringe positions’ and who have ‘espoused conspiracy theories’ could hamper the government in its ability to do everyday tasks. The piece went so far as to say that these future right-wing politicians could plunge the country and the world at large into ‘chaos.'”

And that…

“It could also mean that the government will struggle to perform such mundane tasks as keeping itself from defaulting on its debt and plunging the global financial system into chaos.” […] “At the same time, a Republican-led stream of impeachments, as some lawmakers have promised for the attorney general, the homeland security secretary, the education secretary and the president, could serve as an endless string of distractions for the executive branch.”

Indeed, a Republican majority in the House would implement a preposterous agenda that consisted mainly of exacting revenge on the Democrats who they believe offended Dear Leader Trump. And we know this not by speculation, but by the public promises of Republicans hoping to gain majority control, such as Jim Jordan and Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has already filed articles of impeachment against President Biden.

Republicans have also promised committee hearings into long ago debunked non-scandals involving Hillary Clinton, Merrick Garland, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Hunter Biden, and more. Trump has even said that he wants the FBI to search Joe Biden’s house – aka the White House – for evidence of some unidentified, and surely imaginary, crime.

It is on the basis of these promises that Republicans are asking Americans to vote for them in November. Forget about the sort of productive accomplishments that Democrats have achieved in the past two years – Infrastructure bill, American Rescue Act, Gun safety, healthcare, tax reform, climate change, etc. – Republicans are offering pure, unfiltered vengeance.

That’s what the GOP is promising the American people. It’s a platform of political payback on behalf of a wannabe authoritarian tyrant. And it’s what the Republicans swear they will devote their time to if given the opportunity. At least when they aren’t cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy, and eliminating Social Security and Medicare.

What’s more, that’s what Trump thinks is a winning campaign strategy. However, based on this NY Times article that Fox re-posted, you have to wonder: Does Fox News think so?

Rick Scott is the Best Chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee the Democrats Ever Had

The 2022 midterm election season officially started this week with Labor Day. And there is an abundance of political ingredients swirling in this year’s stew. Most notably is that the leader of the Republican Party, Donald Trump, is sloshing around furiously as he attempts to avoid being indicted for a broad array of crimes.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

Democrats are enjoying a bit of a late surge following the successful passage of a flurry of popular bills addressing everything from infrastructure to gun safety, to climate change, and much more. Consequently, the down ballot Republicans are suffering nervous breakdowns as they try to navigate the perilous waters between being sufficiently worshipful of Trump, as he demands, and dodging the toxic animosity and controversy that the flailing Trump is splashing on his GOP colleagues.

RELATED: Wannabe Dictator Trump Decrees a Delusional Demand that He Be Anointed American Messiah

Sen Rick Scott of Florida is currently serving as the chairman of that National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), which is tasked with getting more Republicans elected to the Senate. He was a curious choice considering that in his pre-Senate career he was the head of a hospital chain that was fined billions of dollars for engaging in fraudulent activities.

Not surprisingly, the NRSC is now undergoing some financial hardship. This was brought up during an interview of Scott on Fox News by Martha MacCallum. MacCallum read to Scott from a report in the New York Times that asked “how a record cash haul vanished for Senate Republicans.” She elaborated saying that…

“It says ‘By the end of July National Republican Senatorial Committee had collected a record $181.5 million, but had already spent 95% of it.’ Then it goes to August where you have just $23.2 million left that is ‘less that half of what the Democratic Senatorial Committee had’ ahead of the really intense stage of this whole race that we’re now heading into. How did that happen? Where did all that money go?”

Scott’s reply illustrates just how much trouble the GOP is in under Scott’s mismanagement of their campaign.

Scott: We did the right thing. We spent early. Here’s the problem with campaigns. If you wait until the last month there’s too much static, too much noise out there. so what we did, as soon as out candidates got through their primaries we started helping them. We put up ads with them. Talked about what they believe in. And we started early on to define the Democrats. That’s put us in a position right now that we can not only keep our fifty Republican seats, we also can pick up probably as many – doesn’t mean we’ll get that many – but we’ve got six competitive states where the Democrats are… all the Democrats are underwater.
MacCallum: But Senator, you see a lot of these races that are tightening up in Florida, in Ohio, and these candidates are in need of money. at this point. some of them are pointing fingers at your leadership and saying that it’s not working. What do you say to them?
Scott: Well, Let’s look at the numbers. … Ron Johnson’s gonna win.
MacCallum: He’s behind by about five points right now, right?
Scott: Ron Johnson is either up a little or tied or down barely.

Well, thanks for clearing that up Ricky. So Ron Johnson, the incumbent senator from Wisconsin, is either ahead, tied or behind. That narrows it down to every conceivable possibility. Never mind that even MacCallum knows that Johnson is losing, although she understates the margin. The latest poll has Democrat Mandela Barnes ahead by seven points. Democrats are also leading or competitive in Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, and Scott’s own Florida.

Scott goes on to cite the 2020 Georgia senate race between Sen. Raphael Warnock and the then-incumbent Kelly Loeffler. He said that Warnock won because Republicans failed to define him early and that that Loeffler was expected to win easily. That’s revisionist recent history, because that race was always close and ended up being decided in a runoff.

So Scott is citing a race that Republicans lost in 2020, and a current race where a Democrat is ahead of their incumbent, as examples of how he is doing everything right. Fine. Let’s not tell him. Poor guy can’t even fool Fox News.

Here’s All the MAGA in Biden’s ‘Soul of America’ Speech – And Trump’s Crackpot Critique

President Biden delivered a primetime address on Thursday that was both hopeful and harrowing. The subject was “The Battle for the Soul of the Nation,” and early on Biden identified the choices that face the country asking whether America should “be a nation of hope and unity and optimism, or a nation of fear, division, and of darkness?”

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

While Biden’s optimism was present throughout, the threat to America’s democracy was what made this speech necessary. Donald Trump and his MAGA cult have become increasingly dangerous since he lost the presidential election in 2020. They have refused to accept the will of the people. They have worked tirelessly to undermine democracy. And they even tried to stage a coup by violently attacking Congress on January 6th, 2021.

More recently, Trump was found to have been hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort/home, posing enormous risks to national security. And after being caught, he began making exponentially more absurd excuses for his crimes and his lies to the FBI. All of this has led to Trump and his cult followers turning more to violence and threats of violence.

RELATED: Lindsey Graham Tells Fox News that ‘There Will Be Riots in the Streets’ if Trump is Prosecuted

That’s what Biden sought to alert the nation about in his speech. It was a non-partisan message that expressly drew a distinction between mainstream Republicans (to the extent that any still exist) and the MAGA Republicans who have pledged their devotion to Dear Leader Trump. In that regard, Biden made several references to Trump’s hateful MAGA movement. For the record, is here what Biden said about the hostile and openly seditionist MAGA-nauts (video below, and transcript here)…

“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election.”

“They see their MAGA failure to stop a peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election as preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections.”

“MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies.”

“Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans: We must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving American democracy than MAGA Republicans are to destroying American democracy.”

“Democracy cannot survive when one side believes there are only two outcomes to an election: either they win or they were cheated. And that’s where MAGA Republicans are today.

“MAGA Republicans look at America and see carnage and darkness and despair. They spread fear and lies – lies told for profit and power. But I see a very different America — an America with an unlimited future.”

“The MAGA Republicans believe that for them to succeed, everyone else has to fail.”

“History tells us that blind loyalty to a single leader and a willingness to engage in political violence is fatal to democracy.”

RELATED: Trump is Covertly Recruiting More Violent Insurrectionists With Promises of Future Pardons

Naturally, Trump couldn’t refrain from weighing in with his customary distortions of reality. in a comment that he posted on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, Trump wrote that…

“If you look at the words and meaning of the awkward and angry Biden speech tonight, he threatened America, including with the possible use of military force. He must be insane, or suffering from late stage dementia!”

If you look at the words and meaning of Biden’s speech, you will find nothing that even remotely approaches the bullpucky that Trump is ranting about. Biden never “threatened America,” or suggested using military force in any way. Trump’s failure to provide a quote is evidence of his shameless dishonesty and/or cognitive collapse. He’s just flinging feces at the wall to see if anything will stick.

It’s ironic that Trump asserts that Biden is “insane, or suffering from late stage dementia!.” Given his inability to coherently comment on Biden’s speech, his imaginary description of what the speech was about, and his pitifully predictable hostility triggered by fake recollections, it’s Trump who appears to be distancing himself from the real world. But then, that’s nothing new for him.

Biden Was Wrong to Call MAGA Republicans Merely ‘Semi’ Fascist

Catching Republicans being hypocritical has completely lost any sporting challenge. It happens on such a regular basis that a blind archer could hit it after being spun around until dizzy.

Click here to Tweet this article

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

The latest example of the GOP’s stridently artificial outrage was revealed in their reaction to recent remarks by President Biden about what he has called the “Ultra-MAGA” Republican Party. When Republican politicians and pundits heard what he had to say, they rushed to distort his actually words, and to manufacture their alternative version. Because fidelity to reality has never been the right’s strength.

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

In a speech at a fundraising event, Biden expressed his view of the fiercely fanatical fear mongers who comprise so much of today’s Republicanism that is drenched in the hostility and ignorance of Donald Trump. Biden prefaced his remarks by explicitly narrowing them to the extremists in the GOP, saying that “I respect conservative Republicans. I don’t respect these MAGA Republicans.” Then he went on to address the uber-rightist faction of the party saying that

“What we’re seeing now is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy. It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the – I’m going to say something – it’s like semi-fascism.”

Oh my! Now he’s done it. Republicans launched into their customary knee-jerk response mode, wherein they extended Biden’s narrowly intended comments to every member of the GOP. Never mind that Biden specifically directed his criticism to the “extreme MAGA philosophy.” He elaborated saying that…

“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal and economic security. They’re a threat to our very democracy. They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace political violence. They don’t believe in democracy. This is why in this moment, those of you who love this country, Democrats, Independents, mainstream Republicans, we must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving America than the MAGA Republicans are to destroying America.”

The only mistake Biden made in his speech was using the qualifier “semi.” There is nothing semi-fascist about inciting an insurrection. There is nothing semi-fascist about attempting to stage a coup and usurp power by undermining democracy. Their is nothing semi-fascist about pardoning your coup-plotting accomplices. There is nothing semi-fascist about suppressing the vote. There is nothing semi-fascist about demeaning the free press as the “enemy of the people.” There is nothing semi-fascist about stealing national security materials, hoarding them at your resort hotel/home in Florida, and lying to the FBI about it. And there is surely nothing semi-fascist about aspiring to authoritarianism and encouraging your cult disciples to support your tyrannical aspirations.

The disingenuous indignation emanating from the right is further negated by its sheer hypocrisy. While they are pretending to be mortally wounded by Biden’s deliberately narrow and irrefutable remarks, they seem to have forgotten all of their own far more offensive attacks on all Democrats and liberals. Republicans, including Trump, have disparaged everyone from Joe Biden to Joe Manchin as traitorous socialists, and even communists. Here are a couple of recent examples of the GOP putting their ignorance on display:

You know who else called their enemies fascist? Americans! It’s ironic that one of the right’s favorite bogeymen is an amorphous contingent of protesters that they have labeled “Antifa,” which is short for anti-fascist. So if Republicans are against that, are they admitting that they are pro-fascist?

One thing that Republicans can’t escape is that a majority of the American people are as disturbed by the MAGA Republican movement as Biden is. And this November could confirm that, so long as all voters are well informed and if Democrats turn out to vote in numbers equal to their composition of the electorate. That’s harder than it sounds, and requires hard work on behalf of patriots who want to save our democracy.

Ted Cruz Articulates the Republican Party’s Utter Disdain for Education and Young Voters

Last week President Biden fulfilled a campaign promise to address the problem of burdensome student college loans. The program provides forgiveness of $10,000 of outstanding loans – $20,000 for Pell grants – for people with incomes below $125,000 a year.

Ted Cruz, Cancun

Within minutes of the announcement, Republicans and their conservative media mouthpieces began criticizing and lying about the program. They complained that it was a socialist handout that awarded deadbeats, loafers, and elitists.

The right-wing reaction revealed just how contemptuous the GOP is of working class Americans. And topping the list of liars is one of the GOP’s most prolific prevaricators, Sen. Ted Cruz. When he isn’t demonstrating his animosity for his troubled Texas constituents by jetting off to Cancun while they were freezing to death, Cruz is groveling on Fox News for the affection of Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson, or some other MAGA martinet.

On Friday Cruz pontificated on his podcast about how despicable Americans are if they had the audacity to better themselves and their prospects for the future by attending college. Never mind that Cruz graduated from Princeton and Harvard Law. In his perverse mind today’s youth are a generation of vermin who deserve nothing but mockery and scorn. Cruz ranted that…

“There is a real risk if you are that slacker barista who wasted seven years in college studying completely useless things, now has loans, and can’t get a job, Joe Biden just gave you 20 grand. Like, holy cow, that 20 grand, you know, maybe you weren’t gonna vote in November and suddenly, you just got 20 grand.

“And you know, if you can get off the bong for a minute and head down to the voting station, or just send in your mail-in ballot that the Democrats have helpfully sent you, it could drive up turnout, particularly among young people.”

So in Cruz’s putrid perspective, higher education is a waste of time. He thinks that today’s college graduates are “slackers” and potheads. And he believes that their votes can be bought by politicians who dare to actually serve the interests of the people. What a concept.

You have to wonder what Cruz regards as “completely useless things” to study. Well, judging by his record in Congress, it’s science (climate change), math (economics), history (American slavery), journalism (the enemy of the people), and public policy (which is what Cruz’s undergraduate degree at Princeton was for).

In the meantime, Biden is pursuing what the broad majorities of the American people support. He recently expressed his agenda in eloquent terms when he distinguished the choices voters have…

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

“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.”

Republicans have spent the last year and a half engaging in knee-jerk opposition to nearly everything that Biden and the Democrats have proposed. But despite that fierce obstructionism, Democrats have succeeded in advancing legislation that has stagnated for years in Congress. These bills have made significant progress on infrastructure, reproductive choice, gun safety, climate change, voting rights, tax fairness, veterans benefits, healthcare, and more. And Republicans opposed all of them.

It’s also notable that while Democrats are working on behalf of the people, Republicans are working on behalf of themselves. The White House posted a revealing thread on Twitter that brilliantly exposes the hypocrisy of Republicans who are attacking Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan, while they stuffed their own pockets with hundreds of thousands of dollars more…

Republicans Get Pissy When Buttigieg Praises Biden Bill that Makes EVs More Affordable

The Republican Party seems to be committed to establishing itself as an anti-American confederacy that is focused only on acquiring and maintaining money and power. They demonstrate on a daily basis that their only loyalty is to the twice-impeached, former reality TV game show host, and aspiring authoritarian dictator, Donald Trump.

Joe Biden, GOP, Titanic

The GOP (Greedy One Percent) appears to have little interest in advancing any affirmative policies. They have no principles, no ideas, and no purpose other than to obstruct Democrats from implementing the overwhelmingly popular programs addressing reproductive choice, gun safety, climate change, voting rights, tax fairness, healthcare, and more. The record of the past two years validates the success of the Democrats’ efforts. The GOP, by contrast, are dismissing this at their own political peril.

Nevertheless, Republicans remain staunchly devoted to their current perverse agenda of preventing any positive progress on behalf of the American people. They illustrated this again after Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg, appeared on MSNBC to tout the benefits of the “Inflation Reduction Act” offered by President Biden and the Democrats. Buttigieg made several points about the bill’s provisions, which predictably sent the Republican National Committee (RNC) into a tizzy on Twitter:

RNC: Biden Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg defends the green energy handouts — a $7,500 giveaway to wealthy Americans for electric vehicles, which have an average cost of $67K — in the Bidenflation Scam.
Buttigieg: I’m excited about the electric vehicle provisions because what this will do is reduce the price, through tax credits, of an electric vehicle. And if you see that lower sticker price and can afford an EV, you’re also gonna be saving money every day that you own it.

It’s curious that the RNC is so outraged by a $7,500 tax credit that will enable Americans to purchase a clean energy car and save money on fuel, but they aren’t the least bit bothered by billions of dollars going to oil companies who will use it to further pollute the planet.

The RNC also dishonestly tries to mislead by citing the average cost of an electric vehicle. Nobody buys a car based on what the average price is of all makes and models. The presence of BMWs and Mercedes and Audis would make the averages for all sedans also look unattainably high. The truth is that many EVs are available for less than $35,000. And the RNC knows that. However, they went on to disinform with a bit of sarcasm, saying…

RNC: Biden Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg: Electric vehicles are the “best” solution for Americans facing sky-high gas prices
Buttigieg: The best thing we can do for the medium and long term is make sure Americans have more options through greater fuel efficiency, and greater access to vehicles that don’t require gasoline at all. So that Americans don’t have to worry about what’s happening in some Middle Eastern capitol or foreign war zone.

Of course, Buttigieg is right. There is no better option, for the environment as well as people’s pocketbooks, than moving toward a cleaner future in transportation. But the RNC just lamely mocks that notion without putting forward any other proposal that they think would be better.

This is typical of today’s Trumpified Republican Party. The only things they offer are hurdles to block progress and hostility toward those who actually want to make life better for the American people. And their lame attempts to distort reality are easily rebutted, as Buttigieg has proven before…
