Tucker Carlson Wants the U.S. to Invade Canada to ‘Liberate’ it So it Doesn’t ‘Become Cuba’

The right-wing Ministry of Propaganda – aka Fox News – has a long history of advocating blatantly anti-American policies and promoting the sort of noxious imperialism that is generally practiced by totalitarian strongholds such as North Korea and Russia. Fox’s hosts and guests don’t make much of an effort to disguise those perverse political positions.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Dictator

Leading the pack of pro-tyrannical blowhards on Fox News is their Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson. His frequent forays into fanboy adoration of brutal dictators like Vladimir Putin are a staple of his primetime fear, war, and hate mongering.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson of Fox News Rattles Off His Ridiculous Reasons for Why You Shouldn’t Hate Putin

On Friday Carlson went farther over the cliff of crackpottery in a segment of his streaming Fox Nation show wherein he expressed his opposition to the U.S. support for Ukraine against the Russian invaders and his hero, Putin. He has previously declared unambiguously that he is on Russia’s side against Ukraine, a sovereign, democratic American ally. “Why do I care about what’s going on in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia?” Carlson said, “And why shouldn’t I root for Russia, because I am.” But on Friday Carlson brought the war home to America, babbling that…

“I’m completely in favor of a Bay of Pigs operation to liberate that country. Why should we stand back and let our biggest trading partner … why should we let it become Cuba? Like, why don’t we liberate it? We’re spending all this money to liberate Ukraine from the Russians. Why are we not sending an armed force north to liberate Canada from Trudeau? And I mean it.”

The Bay of Pigs was a covert military action against a hostile, foreign nation that ended in catastrophic failure and nearly triggered a nuclear war. But Carlson is, nevertheless, in favor of a “Bay of Pigs” style assault against our neighbor and ally, Canada. what he is advocating, to put it plainly, is terrorism.

It’s ironic, and repulsive, that Carlson associates his perverse advocacy of the U.S. invading Canada with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Carlson is not only taking Russia’s side as they commit horrific war crimes against civilians, he is advocating that the U.S. emulate Russia in his sick fantasy of attacking Canada.

Carlson never explains what it is about Canada that reminds him of Cuba. Perhaps he is just upset by the fact that it’s a democratic country that has universal healthcare, protects the environment, is proud of its diversity, and respects civil and human rights. Having such a progressive country just across the border likely keeps Carlson awake nights.

Consequently, Carlson seriously proposes a hostile, military takeover of Canada in order to force it to comply with the autocratic principles of the countries that Carlson admires: Russia, North Korea, Hungary, Brazil, etc. He would put American soldiers at risk, and task them with murdering innocent Canadians, to fulfill his dreams of a dystopian dictatorship that would presumably be ruled over by Dear Leader Trump.

The spark that lit Carlson’s fuse was a reference to the Canadian trucker’s convoys in 2022 in protest of COVID restrictions. They were decidedly undemocratic road blockages by a distinct minority, but were capable of causing severe economic hardship by using their trucks as barriers to all traffic. At the time, Carlson came out in support of the truckers, and urged American truckers to follow their lead and drag down the U.S. economy.

That’s just how Tucker rolls. He is an anti-American activist who is willing to sacrifice the welfare of the nation in order to achieve his neo-fascist cravings. And apparently he is also willing to sacrifice other nations for the same end. Where would he stop? Would Mexico and Central America be next? Would he seek to ally with Putin to capture Western Europe? Is world domination his ultimate goal? It’s hard to imagine that he isn’t dreaming of that now. And Fox News is all too happy to advance that abhorrent objective.

Fox News Smears Hakeem Jeffries as an ‘Election Denier’ to Deflect From McCarthy Speaker Fiasco

It is now day three of the Kevin McCarthy House Speaker Spectacular as Republicans have failed repeatedly to secure enough votes to elect a leader. Despite frenzied lobbying, negotiating, and humiliating concessions by McCarthy to the most extreme crackpots in the GOP caucus, they remain stalemated.

Fox News Alert

Despite his having caved in to the wackos who seek to weaken and control his Speakership, McCarthy hasn’t budged the opposition in his party at all. Even Donald Trump, who ignored the race until after the first three failed votes, had zero impact on the results when he finally sunk to begging for votes with a lukewarm post on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, saying that Republicans should vote for McCarthy so they can “WATCH CRAZY NANCY PELOSI FLY BACK HOME.” Which aside from being something that isn’t going to happen, it is hardly a stirring endorsement of McCarthy.

RELATED: Fellow Losers: Trump’s Belated Support Proves Impotent as McCarthy Still Loses Votes for Speaker

In the midst of this Republican ridiculousness, Fox News has struggled to find a narrative that would frame this in a positive light for the GOP. Consequently, they have shifted their focus to slandering Democrats. Specifically, they are going after the House Democratic leader, Hakeem Jeffries, who has enjoyed the unified support of his party and received more votes than McCarthy on every ballot. But rather than reporting that factual account of events, Fox News went with the following…

“Democrats continue handing votes to Jeffries, who has long history of denying elections.”

That’s a creative spin, to say the least. Anyone with even the barest grasp of current political affairs knows that the Republican Party, and it’s Dear Leader Donald Trump, have been the fiercely delusional disseminators of the “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged and stolen” from Trump. It’s practically the only thing that Trump talks about. But this isn’t an isolated attempt by Fox News to project the “election denier” label on Jeffries. They have previously run stories asserting…

  • RNC blasts ‘election denier’ Hakeem Jeffries moments after he wins Democrat leadership
  • New Dem House leader Hakeem Jeffries labeled ‘election denier’ by Republicans, who call for media scrutiny
  • Election denier Hakeem Jeffries could replace Pelosi as House Dem leader
  • Hakeem Jeffries called Trump’s 2016 election victory a ‘hoax,’ referred to him as ‘so-called’ president

For the record, neither Jeffries, nor any Democrat, have engaged in actual election denying activities. Democrats haven’t refused to concede elections that they lost. They haven’t filed an endless stream of bogus lawsuits to alter the outcomes of any race. And they certainly have never assaulted the Congress or staged a violent coup to overturn an election. No Democrat has been convicted of seditious conspiracy to overthrow the government by insurrection, as members of Trump’s Oath Keepers have.

The remarks that Fox News is claiming constitute election denial by Jeffries are common political commentaries by political partisans. For instance, after the 2016 election, Jeffries said that…

“Russia interfered with our election, attacked our democracy, for the sole purpose of artificially placing someone at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. They were successful.”

That is an unambiguously true statement. It was affirmed by U.S. intelligence agencies, and even the Senate Intelligence Committee – led at the time by Republicans – that found that Russia had an extensive program aimed at disseminating disinformation intended to benefit Trump and to harm Hillary Clinton. What’s more, Vladimir Putin confirmed it with Trump standing right next to him.

SEE THIS: Donald Trump’s Own Words at the Treason Summit with Putin Are Dripping with His Guilt

So, as usual, Fox News is manufacturing disparaging and dishonest depictions of Democrats. It’s the only thing they can do when their own GOP colleagues are being swallowed up in catastrophes of their own making. And despite how often Fox News does this, they really aren’t getting any better at it.

Trump Sues the Pulitzer Prize Board for Honoring Accurate Stories of His Russian Collusion

Last month Donald Trump announced that he is running for the Republican Party’s nomination for president in 2024. Since then a couple of dozen of his endorsed candidates lost their races, he has been convicted of tax fraud, he lashed out hysterically against the special counsel probing his criminal activities, and he dined with neo-Nazis at Mar-a-Lago.

No one, therefore, should be surprised that Trump’s poll ratings have cratered and he is exhibiting signs of severe depression and desperation. Consequently he is resorting to bizarre antics such as calling for the termination of the Constitution.

RELATED: Trump Doubles Down on His Constitution Bashing and Misquotes Himself to Gaslight His Cult

Now Trump has filed a lawsuit against the Pulitzer Prize Board that is profoundly frivolous. He is finally fulfilling a promise he made two months ago to file this suit in two weeks. Now he’s boasting about it on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, with a link to an article on Fox News. Fox reported that…

“Former President Trump filed a defamation lawsuit on Tuesday against the Pulitzer Prize Board over the 2018 National Reporting prizes given to The New York Times and Washington Post for coverage of ‘now-debunked theory’ of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.”

Of course, the allegations of Trump’s unsavory connections to Russia were not only never “debunked,” they have been affirmed repeatedly. Fox went on to quote from Trump’s filing saying that…

“The complaint made a series of points indicating why it feels the Pulitzer Prize-winning stories are unworthy of the honor, including Special Counsel Robert Mueller failing to find evidence of collusion.” [and that] At the time of publication, nearly every branch and agency of the federal government had examined this issue and reached the same conclusion: there was no conspiracy or cooperation between President Trump or the Trump Campaign and Russia.”

All of that is patently false. Mueller explicitly stated in his report that Trump was not exonerated. What’s more, he told the House Intelligence Committee that Trump and his campaign “welcomed and encouraged” Russian interference, and that there was sufficient evidence to indict Trump. A Republic-led Senate Intelligence panel found that Russia had an extensive program aimed at disseminating disinformation intended to benefit Trump and to harm Hillary Clinton. Even Vladimir Putin admitted, with Trump standing right next to him, that he wanted Trump to win and had helped him do so. Much of these sordid associations were catalogued in the book Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump, by Michael Isikoff and David Corn.

The most likely outcome for this lawsuit is a quick dismissal by the court. The judge will surely notice that Trump isn’t even suing the news outlets that published the stories that won the Pulitzers. He’s suing the Pulitzer Board for awarding the prizes. Which they have every right to do. They even had an independent review conducted after receiving a demand from Trump to rescind the awards. That review found that “no passages or headlines, contentions or assertions in any of the winning submissions were discredited by facts that emerged subsequent to the conferral of the prizes.”

RELATED: Trump Whines that Pulitzer Won’t Rescind Awards for Stories on Russian Election Interference

Look for Trump to continue to descend into an abyss of anxiety and madness as the prospects for his being held to account legally come closer to fruition. One of the signs of that descent could be revealed soon. Trump also posted a comment Wednesday that said cryptically that “AMERICA NEEDS A SUPERHERO! I will be making a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT tomorrow. Thank you!” America is anxiously awaiting this announcement with popcorn at the ready.

UPDATE: Trump’s “Major Announcement” turns out to be just another grift. And a hysterically pitiful one: “MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT! My official Donald Trump Digital Trading Card collection is here! These limited edition cards feature amazing ART of my Life & Career! […] GET YOUR CARDS NOW! Only $99 each!” His glassy-eyed cult disciples should snap these up. Who wouldn’t want one of these?

Trump Literally Calls for Termination of the Constitution and FREAKS OUT Over Bogus Fox News Story

The unsettling totalitarian tendencies of Donald Trump have long posed an imminent threat to American democracy and freedom. From the outset of his political pursuits he has demonstrated a sinister aspiration to tyrannical rule. It’s a symptom of his malignant narcissism that puts the nation – and world – at risk.

Donald Trump, Constitution

Now, more than two years after he was unceremoniously evicted from his occupation of the White House by the American people, Trump continues to peddle his “Big Lie” that the election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. And although it’s a flagrantly false figment of his diseased imagination, he persists in pushing it out to his glassy-eyed cult disciples, despite his rapidly declining approval and influence.

RELATED: Donald Trump is The Biggest Loser: Post-Midterm Poll Affirms What Everyone Already Knows

However, if you thought that he had exhausted his store of preposterous allegations and infantile rage, you don’t know Trump. On Saturday morning he unleashed an avalanche of absurdity in service of his severely acute psychosis. This temper tantrum manifested in multiple posts on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. The tedious tirade culminated in the following hysteria

“So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”

REALLY? So Trump is now insisting that the Constitution be terminated in order to satisfy his election fraud fantasies and his voracious lust for power. It’s not especially surprising that Trump would hold that view. But it is unusual for him to so forthrightly express it.

The story that Trump regards as a “revelation,” and is so frantically flustered by, came from Fox News. It concerned a couple of Republican attorneys general from Missouri and Louisiana who are suing the Biden administration alleging censorship and suppression of speech by “Big Tech” and the FBI. Their complaint is wholly based on reports that the FBI held regular and normal meetings with the media to alert them to Russia’s attempts to interfere with the 2020 election. But even Fox’s reporting doesn’t assert what Trump and the GOP AGs are twisting these facts to conclude…

“During the deposition, [FBI Supervisory Special Agent Elvis] Chan said that he, along with the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force and senior Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency officials, had weekly meetings with major social media companies to warn against Russian disinformation attempts ahead of the 2020 election, according to a source in the Missouri attorney general’s office. […] According to a source, Chan testified that in those multiple, separate meetings, the FBI warned the social media companies that there could be potentially Russian ‘hack and dump’ or ‘hack and leak’ operations.”

So even according to Fox News there was no conspiracy between the government and “Big Tech” to censor or suppress free speech. It was all just an effort to keep the social media outlets apprised of the Russian disinformation campaign. Also, it’s interesting that Trump is readily accepting this reporting based on allegations by an unnamed source when he has previously dismissed them all as fake.

What Trump, and most of the right-wing echo chamber, is distorting into another pseudo-scandal is an already debunked story. It featured false claims that Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, told podcaster Joe Rogan that the FBI had ordered him to suppress news about – what else – Hunter Biden’s stolen laptop. Which is not what Zuckerberg said, or what the FBI was doing at all.

In reality, the FBI was doing their job to protect social media platforms, and thus the nation, from Russia’s election interference and fake news manipulation. Which is precisely what Russia was, in fact, doing. But that didn’t stop Trump from demanding that 2020 election be declared invalid, and that he be “declared the rightful winner.”

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

The Fox News story also reported that “the FBI regularly sends social media companies lists of internet URLs and social media accounts” that distribute “disinformation” from “malign foreign influence operations.” The story falsely implies that this amounts to censorship. Except that the evidence shows that the FBI never imposed any actions to be taken on the social media sites. They merely supplied the sites with information and let them determine for themselves what to do with it. In other words, free speech and the free markets prevailed. Not that Fox News or Trump would recognize it.

Ignoring the obvious facts in this affair, Trump ranted furiously in half a dozen successively incoherent posts that it represented “total corruption” and demanded that someone should “DO SOMETHING as our Country Melts!!!” He didn’t say who, or under what authority, this alleged melting should be halted. It was just more of his now familiar impotent whining and pathetic victimhood. And if the past is any indication, we should expect it to continue – and escalate – as he sinks farther into despair and desperation.

UPDATE I: Trump followed up his alt-tweet storm with another post saying that “UNPRECEDENTED FRAUD REQUIRES UNPRECEDENTED CURE!” He doesn’t specify what that “cure” is, but considering that a short while ago he called for terminating the Constitution, it’s hard not surmise that he’s now calling for another coup attempt or other violent upheaval on the part of his treasonous cult.

UPDATE II: Two days later Trump denied ever calling for the termination of the Constitution, despite his words calling for exactly that, verbatim.

Blame America First: Trump Says if Putin Goes Nuclear in Ukraine ‘It’s Because of the U.S.’

One of the most predictable and ironic traits of Donald Trump and his cult followers is that they pretend to be passionately patriotic, while actually acting adversely to American interests and finding fault with everything the nation does if it isn’t in direct alignment with the whims of Trump.

Donald Trump Vladimir Putin

Trump himself demonstrated this crackpot quirk during an interview with Fox News Trump-fluffer, Brian Kilmeade. The topic was the Russian war against Ukraine. The entire Western alliance of free nations is united in supporting Ukraine against Russia’s aggression. So is President Biden and the Democratic Party. So naturally, Trump has taken a knee-jerk opposition to the pro-Ukraine stance and is, as usual, backing his hero, Vladimir Putin.

RELATED: Trump’s ‘Solution’ to the War in Ukraine is to Appease Russia and Quash Any Criticism of Putin

The conversation Trump had with his media minion Kilmeade revealed once again that Trump’s sympathies lie with America’s enemies. He has proven, as he invariably does, his devotion to the “America First” doctrine that he rants about incessantly. To clarify, that’s the “Blame America First” doctrine. He began by exposing his pitiful ignorance of world affairs…

Trump: Ukraine is a much smaller military, you have to remember. And now they’re using tactics and don’t forget those tactics are going to get a lot worse. And importantly – I call it the “N” word – the nuclear word. People get a little angry when I say that. Don’t get angry. It’s the biggest threat in the world today.
Kilmeade: Do you think he’d uses them. There’s a story that Putin wanted to use them and his inner circle stopped it. Do you think Putin would use nuclear weapons?
Trump: Well, I don’t think he’ll stand for losing. So in some form, maybe limited form – but to think we’re even having this conversation. You know, you never mention the “N” word. Either one. You never mention the “N” word or the “N” word. The nuclear “N” word never was supposed to be mentioned. Now I’m reading every day – as an example, today I’m reading somewhere that there’s at least a 40% chance that he’ll use nuclear weapons. How the hell did this happen? And it’s because of the United States.

First of all, Trump is apparently unaware that Ukraine’s much smaller military is winning this war against Russia. What’s worse is that he is almost sanctioning the prospect of Russia using nuclear weapons. Trump’s infantile speech patterns have him repeatedly referring to the “N” word, as if it were naughty. And he thinks that people have a problem with discussions about nuclear weapons, that he thinks should never be mentioned.

Trump also told Kilmeade about something that “I’m reading somewhere,” that said “there’s at least a 40% chance that [Putin will] use nuclear weapons.” Notice that he didn’t say where he allegedly read that. Suffice to say that it was either in the QAnon Daily News, or on a cocktail napkin handed to him by his chief foreign affairs advisors, Michael Flynn and Steve Bannon.

The most repulsive part of Trump’s comments, however, were his closing remarks where he said that the threat of Russia escalating the war into a nuclear conflict was “because of the United States.” Because blaming America is always Trump’s first inclination. And he has worshipfully demonstrated for the past six years that he would never attribute anything negative to his Moscow messiah.

Trump Threatens to Sue Pulitzers Over ‘Russia Hoax’ and for Not Giving Awards to Sean Hannity

On Saturday Donald Trump and His Traveling Salvation Show made another stop to put on yet another performance of his tediously repetitive Moldy Oldies Extravaganza. This time he visited Robstown, Texas, to dispense his familiar fallacies about non-existent election fraud (aka the “Big Lie”), his supremacy over every other mortal, complaints about Democrats plotting to destroy America, and myriad whining about what a pathetic victim he is.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump

Featured in this outing, as always, was Trump’s unending outrage over having been caught colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. For some reason Trump can’t address the subject without repeating the name of his foreign partner three times (“Russia, Russia, Russia”), as if he were attempting to summon his demon master, Vladimir Putin, in the manner popularized by Beetlejuice.

In the midst of his surly sermonizing, Trump took a short detour to whine about the New York Times and the Washington Post receiving Pulitzer Prizes for their reporting on Trump’s unsavory associations with Russia (video below). This isn’t the first time he’s focused his fixation on this subject. In fact, he has been ranting about it for more than a year.

SEE (October 3, 2021): Trump Whines to Pulitzer Board that Awards for Russian Collusion Stories Should Be Rescinded

During his harangue, Trump announced that he would be filing a lawsuit against the Pulitzer board within the next two weeks. Which is precisely same amount time that he promises everything from healthcare plans to border walls to infrastructure bills. he yammered that…

“They gave out the Pulitzer Prize for reporting on the Russia hoax. For reporting on Russia, Russia, Russia. So you have reporters from the Washington Post and the New York times get Pulitzer Prizes, and they reported the exact wrong thing. So within the next two weeks, we’re suing the Pulitzer organization to have those prizes taken back. We’ll be doing that over the next two weeks. I think it’s a very good lawsuit, but we’ll see.”

Apparently dotard Trump has forgotten his previous threats to sue the Pulitzers over this. Including this threat just three months ago. He has also forgotten – or failed to understand – the response by the Pulitzer board, who detailed their exhaustive process for reviewing and validating their awards. The board explicitly addressed Trump’s complaint, then dismissed it because two separate reviews found that…

“…no passages or headlines, contentions or assertions in any of the winning submissions were discredited by facts that emerged subsequent to the conferral of the prizes.“

For the record, there is abundant evidence of the Trump campaign’s numerous unsavory connections to Russia. Much of it is catalogued in the book Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump, by Michael Isikoff and David Corn.

What’s more, the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller found that Trump and his campaign “welcomed and encouraged” Russian interference, and that there was sufficient evidence to indict Trump. Even Putin admitted, with Trump standing next to him, that he wanted Trump to win and had helped him do so.

However, Trump added a new wrinkle to his whining this time. He was not only incensed that the Pulitzer board gave awards to the Times and the Post, he was also furious that his friends at Fox News weren’t honored instead:

“Think of it. They got the Pulitzer Prize for wrong reporting. But other people should have gotten the Pulitzer Prize because, frankly, they got it right for years. And they don’t do Pulitzer Prizes for guys like Sean Hannity, but they should, by a different name. And Tucker Carlson, and Jeanine Pirro, and Laura [Ingraham], and so many different people. But they don’t get anything.”

So Trump thinks that people like Hannity and Carlson and Ingraham should get awards (by a different name?) for their ass-kissing lies and propaganda. And he is determined to right this imaginary wrong by suing the Pulitzer board:

“Remember this… By allowing these people that got Russia, Russia, Russia wrong, they’re actually libeling me because they’re saying they got it right and it turned out to be a hoax. And everybody now has admitted that it was hoax. Even the Times, and even the Washington Post, they said it’s a hoax. So if it’s a hoax then let them give the Pulitzer Prizes back, or take them back. They shouldn’t be allowed to keep them.”

Reality check: Neither the Times nor the Post ever “admitted” that their reporting on Trump and Russia was a hoax. In fact, investigations by U.S. intelligence agencies, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and even the GOP-led Senate Intelligence Committee, found that Russia had an extensive program aimed at disseminating disinformation intended to benefit Trump and to harm Hillary Clinton. And the Trump campaign was well aware of Russia’s efforts, and encouraged and exploited them.

So we’ll see in two weeks if Trump finally gets around to carrying out this old threat to sue the Pulitzers. But if it’s anything like his past lawsuits, he’s just going to wind up humiliating himself even more.

Alex Jones Joins Trump and Fox News in Exalting Putin for Becoming More … Christian?

It takes real chutzpah for Alex Jones to continue to present himself to the public after having been ordered to pay nearly $50 million to some of the families of the children murdered in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that he said never happened. He accused the families – even the children – of lying and faking the whole thing. Another trial is currently in progress on behalf of more victims’ families.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Alex Jones

Undaunted by anything resembling decency, Jones went on Steve Bannon’s podcast to resume spinning his fear and hate mongering conspiracy theories. During this episode Jones aligned himself with Donald Trump’s twisted Republican Party and his Ministry of Disinformation, Fox News. Their embrace of the barbaric dictator, Vladimir Putin, is one of the most reprehensible political confederations since the Nazi-supporting “America First” contingent in the 1930s.

RELATED: Trump’s ‘Solution’ to the War in Ukraine is to Appease Russia and Quash Any Criticism of Putin

Jones was appalled that Democrats have a negative opinion of such a virtuous sweetheart like Putin. He couldn’t seem to grasp why anyone would dislike the man who is currently slaughtering hundreds of innocent Ukrainian civilians in an egomaniacal attempt to illegally annex portions of that country. Jones ranted…

“Do you leftists really want to destroy the world in a nuclear fire because you have a fetish for hating Russians and Putin because they’ve become a little bit more Christian? Again, they don’t hate Russia because they’re the former Soviet Union. The Left hates Russia because they’re becoming more like the American Midwest. They’re becoming more conservative. They’re against transgenderism and teaching five year olds about sex and all the rest of this. So that’s why Hollywood and the Rob Reiners of the world literally have a fetish for destroying Russia.”

There’s a lot of putrid crackpottery to unpack there. Let’s begin with Jones’ preposterous assertion that it’s leftists who are threatening nuclear war. That was Putin’s idea. Apparently Jones thinks that Democrats are at fault because they aren’t cowering under Putin’s threat, as Jones would prefer America to do.

Jones then lauds the piety of Putin. He regards Trump’s pal Vladimir as a saintly figure who exemplifies the American ideal of Christianity. Never mind that he just happens to be engaging in heinous war crimes by murdering men, women, and children, because Ukraine won’t surrender their sovereignty to his tyrannical imperialism.

Like Trump and Fox News, Jones Favors Putin over American patriots who believe in freedom and democracy. The right’s perverse interpretation of Christianity veers off more toward totalitarianism and religious oppression and cult worship.

Yet that’s the dominant viewpoint of faith among the right-wing in America today. They have utterly abandoned the principles of both Christianity and the Constitution. And they aren’t the least bit shy about expressing these depraved ideas, or foisting their deranged doctrine on everyone else.

James Carville Whales on CNN’s GOP Pundit and Republicans Who Worship Putin

One of the most bizarre perversions of rational policy making in the era of Donald Trump has been the embrace by Trump, and his tainted Republican Party, of Russia and its murderous dictator, Vladimir Putin. From the outset of Trump’s occupation of the White House he was taking Putin’s side against the U.S.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump Vladimir Putin

The reasons for Trump’s reverence of Putin likely include his feelings of indebtedness for Putin’s helping him to win the 2016 election, and his craving for the sort of financial rewards that Putin could lavish upon him during and after his term in office.

That’s what accounts for Trump telling the world that he believed Putin over his own American intelligence agencies about Russian interference in U.S. elections. It would also account for Trump serving Russia’s geopolitical interests by attacking and weakening NATO, scrapping the Iran nuclear pact, and supporting Brexit and the dissolution of the E.U. And then there is also Trump’s constant praise for Putin as a “strong leader” and a “genius,” while he maligned the U.S. and President Biden.

RELATED: Trump’s ‘Solution’ to the War in Ukraine is to Appease Russia and Quash Any Criticism of Putin

On Saturday one of CNN’s Republican pundits, Scott Jennings, was asked about the recent announcement by OPEC that they intended to cut oil production in order to increase the price. Jennings responded by predictably blaming it on Biden and, just like Trump, accusing him of being weak. Whereupon, CNN’s liberal analyst James Carville laid into him with some logic and actual facts…

“You know who doesn’t think Biden is weak? Vladimir Putin. The Republican hero of the United States. The man that the Republican Party worships is getting the crap kicked out of him right now with U.S. Support and a Joe Biden-led coalition. If they want to love the Saudis that’s their business. The United States is making a successful stand in what, in my opinion, is the most successful foreign policy initiative since World War II.”

Indeed, Ukraine is executing a successful defense against the invasion by Russia. They have repelled Russian forces and they are retaking regions that Russia had occupied. And the military assistance from the U.S. and other allies has been critical to that success. That assistance has been opposed by Trump and many Republicans who criticize Biden for providing it. Biden’s critics must be even more troubled because it is working so well.

In the meantime, Trump is still siding with Putin and making preposterous claims that Russia would never have invaded Ukraine if he were still president. Although, that could be seen as true if you acknowledge that Russia wouldn’t have needed to invade because Trump would have handed Putin everything he wanted to annex the entire country.

Even worse, Trump is now claiming that the U.S. is responsible for the Russian invasion of Ukraine. His “Blame America First” theory is that the U.S. “taunted” Putin into invading:

The fact that Republicans have adopted Trump’s pro-Russia positions and his traitorous affinity for Putin tells us that the GOP is now a party wallowing in the cultism of Trump. They can no longer be depended on to pursue the interests of the U.S. And the cult disciples that are following Trump and his disfigured GOP (Grovelers Over Putin) are likewise lost to Trump’s anti-democratic aspirations for a Putin-style dictatorship.

This makes the upcoming midterm election more important than any in decades. So be sure to vote, and to get as many democracy-loving patriots as you can to vote with you. Because if Republicans manage to eke out a victory, it may be the last time you get to vote in free election.

R U KIDDING? Trump Offers to ‘Head Up Group’ to Negotiate an End to Russia’s War on Ukraine

One of Donald Trump’s favorite reality defying rhetorical maneuvers is to insist that some recent circumstance would never have happened if he were still president. He’s used it to claim that there would have been no inflation, that the U.S. would have left Afghanistan peacefully, that COVID would have disappeared, and essentially that his perpetual occupation of the White House would mean eternal paradise on earth. He’d probably say that there would have been no hurricane if he were still king.

Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin

Perhaps more often than any other of these preposterous claims was Trump’s insistence that Russia would not have invaded Ukraine if he were president. Trump employs this sort of baseless speculation because it is impossible to disprove an imaginary past. However, it is easy to conclude from past behavior that if Trump were in office when Russia chose to attack Ukraine that he would have been on Russia’s side. And he surely would not have provided assistance to Ukraine, whose president he extorted in an attempt to get him to dig up dirt on then-candidate Joe Biden. Which is why he got impeached the first time.

RELATED: Trump Reveals He Talked to Putin About Invading Ukraine, But Stiffed Them on Military Aid Anyway

On Wednesday morning Trump posted a comment on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, that once again asserted his fabrications as fact. And he went further to propose himself as the universal solver of any and every problem that humans face…

“U.S. ‘Leadership’ should remain ‘cool, calm, and dry’ on the SABOTAGE of the Nord Stream Pipelines. This is a big event that should not entail a big solution, at least not yet. The Russia/Ukraine catastrophe should NEVER have happened, and would definitely not have happened if I were President. Do not make matters worse with the pipeline blowup. Be strategic, be smart (brilliant!), get a negotiated deal done NOW. Both sides need and want it. The entire World is at stake. I will head up group???”

First of all, Trump’s perception of himself as “cool, calm, and dry” is downright hysterical. He is without peer as America’s most mentally unbalanced politician ever. Secondly, Trump’s concern about the Nord Stream pipeline explosion is difficult to take seriously. He has already blamed it on the Biden administration without any proof whatsoever. That, of course, is typical of his “Blame America First” tendencies. The last thing he would ever do is criticize his hero and mentor, Vladimir Putin.

However, the peak of Trump’s lunacy is revealed in his deranged proposal that he should “head the group” dispatched to negotiate an end to the Russian aggression against Ukraine. That would be like sending Himmler to represent the Allies in peace talks with Hitler. We know whose side Trump is on. He has already called for appeasement of Russia, including his solution to let Putin annex parts of Eastern Ukraine.

Trump’s latest comment is another suggestion that Ukraine “get a negotiated deal done NOW.” But why should Ukraine agree to any Russian demand for territory that doesn’t belong to them? Ukraine is winning this war and can prevail with the support of Western allies.

Trump, on the other hand, is is waving the white flag of surrender. And that’s the sort of cowardly, traitorous “leadership” that he has provided in the past and would provide in the future if he were ever to regain power in the U.S. He’s telling us so explicitly. We must not allow it to happen.

Obviously Addled Trump Utterly Misconstrues Report that the FBI Paid a Russian Informant

September has been a bad month, so far, for the twice-impeached, former reality TV game show host, Donald Trump. The fallout from his having stolen, hoarded, and lied about having highly sensitive national security materials stashed at his Mar-a-Lago bunker continues to pose significant legal peril for him and his anti-American crime syndicate.

Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin

In addition to being the subject of criminal and civil investigations from New York, to Georgia, to Washington, D.C., to the federal Department of Justice, his pitiful Twitter ripoff, Truth Social is floundering. His lawsuit against Hillary Clinton was laughed out of court. His buddy and co-conspirator Mike Lindell had his phone confiscated at a Hardee’s. And even Fox News has been shying away from their role as knee-jerk Trump defenders.

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

Consequently, Trump is sinking ever further into an abyss of incoherence and desperation. On Thursday Trump posted comments on his alt-Twitter that parroted some recent contrivances in the ultra-rightist press. These stories are badly distorted versions of the news that special counsel John Durham’s investigation is wrapping up with almost nothing to show. It took 29 months and $40 million dollars to produce goose eggs, rather than the mother lode of incriminating evidence they hoped for against Hillary Clinton or whoever they are obsessing over. As reported by CNN

“In all, Durham has prosecuted just three people: [Igor] Danchenko, the acquitted Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, and a low-level FBI lawyer named Kevin Clinesmith, who avoided jail by pleading guilty in 2020 to doctoring an email in 2017.”

For the record, the Mueller probe took only 22 months and resulted in 34 indictments and eight convictions of close associates of Trump including Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Flynn, and Roger Stone.

Trump’s comments took a decidedly deranged turn by latching unto the only case still pending from Durham’s inquisition. Trump wrote that

“FBI working with Russia to get Trump. If this were reversed, it would be the biggest story in 50 years. The Fake News Media does everything possible not to cover it – but the people know!”

And that

“The biggest story of them all. They worked with the Russians, not “Trump.” It was all made up by the FBI and their SleazeBag friends. Then we’re supposed to trust them?”

So Trump is now whining that the “FBI [was] working with Russia to get Trump.” And he wonders what would happen “if this were reversed.” But Trump apparently doesn’t know what “reversed” means. If this were reversed it would be “Trump is working with Russia to get the FBI.” Which, ironically, is true. Everything Trump is doing and saying is anti-FBI, who he has called “disgraceful,” “dishonest,” and “completely corrupt.” That’s an assessment that Russia not only agrees with, but has worked tirelessly to promulgate.

The allegation by Trump and his lickspittle media mouthpieces is that a source for the infamous “Steele Dossier” was briefly paid by the FBI as an informant. From that morsel of unsupported info, the Trump faction concludes that the FBI was working “with” Russia to take down Trump.

What they fail to grasp is that the FBI often pays informants for information about crime suspects. That doesn’t mean they are working with the crime bosses. In fact, it means just the opposite. They are working with people who turned against the bosses. If the FBI pays a mob informant they are working against the mob, not with it.

The informant in this case is an example of that. Danchenko was not a Russian ally. He was a dissident who left Russia to live in the U.S., and he was ratting out his former associates in the Kremlin. By disparaging Danchenko it’s Trump who is, in effect, working with Russia. Again. So…same as it ever was.
