Marjorie Taylor Greene: The GOP Will Govern Like the Mafia’s 5 Families in ‘The Godfather’

December, being the month of giving, behooves us all to express our gratitude for the gifts that crackpot Republicans provide due to their inbred asininity. While this sort of generosity is a year-round endeavor for them, there seems to be an uptick during the year end holiday season.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, Gun

So let us give thanks today to Marjorie Taylor Greene. On Tuesday morning she visited with her coup-plotting cohort, Steve Bannon, to discuss the changing control of Congress next year. It’s an issue that she has given a great deal of thought to. For the most part her thoughts have been of totalitarian domination. It’s a theme that the GOP has been fixated on, and one that Greene has personanlly taken to heart.

RELATED: Fascista Marjorie Taylor Greene: If I was Speaker of the House I Would Reign with an Iron Fist

During Greene’s banter with Bannon, she revealed the inside dope on the Republican Party’s plans now that they have a razor thin majority in the House of Representatives. Previously they proposed an initiative that consisted mainly of talking points that were stale when they were first proposed nearly thirty years ago by Newt Gingrich. Even Tucker Carlson of Fox News found it to be a hollow farce.

They also promised a flurry of revenge probes, staging phony investigations of everything from Hunter Biden’s stolen laptop, to the evil machinations of Dr. Fauci. But Greene had something even more profound in mind…

“We’ve been doing – and it’s really interesting – people are arguing, people are clashing, people are also starting to agree, and there’s a meeting that’s happening every week, and we meet in Kevin McCarthy’s office, and it’s called the “Five Families.” And the Five Families – you know my reference – are parts of our conference. All the different parts. And we are coming together and having discussions on how we are going to govern in the majority. And it’s literally my favorite meeting.”

So Greene is analogizing the Republican Party to the Mafia and the fragile coordination between various hostile factions of it. How appropriate that she associates the GOP with a crumbling crime syndicate. Bannon couldn’t help but notice that Greene’s analogy also spelled trouble for Republicans, saying that “I hope that those meetings turn out better than the Five Families meetings in ‘The Godfather.’ They went to war.”

The sour note in this soap opera is that Greene’s fantasy puts Kevin McCarthy in Marlon Brando’s role of Don Corleone. That stretches the willingness to believe a bit too far. However, Greene is at least being consistent with her affinity for violence and gun play. She recently told the crowd at a QAnon affair that the January 6th insurrection wasn’t an insurrection at all, and that “if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention that it would have been armed.”

So Greene thinks that the problem with the Trump-incited riots in Washington, D.C., aimed at undermining democracy, was that there weren’t enough guns. And that is why she is the new face of the Trumpian Republican Party.

Greene is already exerting her control over McCarthy, who needs her vote to become Speaker. He knows that the narrow margin of the GOP majority, and his unpopularity among his own caucus, means he has to kowtow to screwballs like Greene. And he isn’t the only one who knows this. Democrats are watching with a mix of glee and horror…

House Republicans Openly Promise to Abuse Power and Impose One-Party, Totalitarian Rule

As the Trump Republican Party prepares to assume control of the House of Representatives with the barest of a majority, they are plotting unrealistically ambitious plans for how they will govern. And almost none of their priorities align in any way with what the American people want, or even with what they campaigned on.

Donald Trump, Republican, GOP

Gone is any discussion of inflation, crime, immigration, or abortion. They have been replaced by a singular focus on phony probes of President Biden, his administration, and his family. Republicans have been fanning out on Fox News and other conservative media outlets promising to impeach the President, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Homeland Security, just for starters.

RELATED: Marjorie Taylor Greene Goes on Berserk Impeach Everybody Rant and Challenges Biden to a Debate

Let’s set aside the fact that they have no chance of succeeding with any that. Nor do they have any intention of doing so. It’s a brazenly political parade of stunts aimed damaging Democrats while ignoring the welfare of the nation, and wasting untold millions of dollars.

But it’s also something much worse. It’s an embrace of totalitarianism that seeks to suppress their political foes. Republicans are determined to rule unimpeded by protocol, decency, or the Constitution. For example, Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL) was asked on Newsmax if GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy intends to strip Adam Schiff of his committee assignments if he becomes Speaker. He replied…

“Yeah, absolutely. Kevin McCarthy has said that. Along with him will be Eric Swalwell will also be removed from the Intelligence Committee.”

Indeed, McCarthy said that last year. According to NBC News

“McCarthy named Reps. Eric Swalwell of California; Ilhan Omar of Minnesota; and Adam Schiff of California as Democrats he’d remove from their committee assignments.”

Never mind that there is no reason other than ideological disagreement for these punitive actions. This is the sort of fascistic behavior that the GOP has been trending toward for several years. What they didn’t mention was the fact that any such committee removals would require a vote of a majority of the House. The Republicans will have a small majority, but because of that, McCarthy wouldn’t have a vote to spare if he intends to carry out this oppressive threat. And if he manages to get away with it, the blowback will be brutal.

In addition to that, Republicans are up in arms about Attorney General Merrick Garland appointing an independent Special Counsel, Jack Smith, to investigate the crimes of Donald Trump. Garland justified the appointment as a measure to separate the Justice Department from the politics. Needless to say, Trump was mortified, as well as terrified.

RELATED: Trump’s Response to the Appointment of a Special Counsel is Predictably Outraged and Schizoid

Trump-fluffer Marjorie Taylor Greene weighed on in this with a threat of her own. On Steve Bannon’s webcast, she told him that she intends to defund the Special Counsel, saying that…

“I just wanna tell Jack Smith he’s not going to get much of a paycheck. Because I’m gonna do everything I can to make sure there is zero American taxpayer dollars appropriated for Merrick Garland’s special counsel, which is nothing but the Democrat Party’s campaign against president Trump […] We’re not going to do this again. That’s it. We’re gonna stop them and we’re gonna do it through the power of the purse.”

Once again, Greene (who said, in the best tradition of fascists, that she would “rule with an iron fist”) and her Republican confederates don’t have the power to unilaterally defund anything. Even if they passed a bill in the House, it would never get through the Democrat-controlled Senate, or be signed by Biden. What’s more, why on Earth would she want to do that? Would she prefer that the investigation be done by the Justice Department attorneys who report to Garland? This is one of those things that Republicans typically fail to think through. Naturally, Greene got concurrence from both Bannon and Laura Ingraham of Fox News.

McCarthy has been cutting deals with folks like Greene in order to secure their votes for Speaker, which he still doesn’t have. Consequently, he is on board with these crackpot schemes that they can’t actually do. And he has also revealed his own priority for the next session of Congress, insisting that the “GOP will repeal Biden’s 87,000 new IRS agents on day one.”

Of course, there is no such initiative. It is just another Republican lie based on an appropriation of funds to recruit IRS employees to replace those who leave over the next five years. And most of them are not agents, but administrative staff.

RELATED: Fox News Fear Mongers that Biden’s IRS Agents Will ‘Hunt Down and Kill Middle Class Taxpayers’

This is what America has to look forward to after the GOP assumes control of the House. On the one hand, it will be a nightmare as Republicans carp endlessly about fake “scandals” and contrived conspiracy theories. On the other hand, it will only further alienate the American people from the GOP, because they are repulsed by their self-serving political antics.

The GOP is proudly anti-American. They have pledged to sabotage the U.S. (and world) economy by refusing to increase the debt ceiling in order to force cuts in Social Security and Medicare. As a result, it is fairly safe to assume that the GOP majority in the House isn’t going to last longer than the next session of Congress. And the Republican’s march toward irrelevancy will advance the Democrat’s prospects for elections in 2024. And they’ll have Marjorie and Kevin to thank.

MAGA Marge (Taylor Greene) Blames Imaginary Voter Fraud, not GOP Losers, for Midterm Losses

The post-midterm election analysis is going to go on for the next few weeks, maybe months. Democrats were expected to lose dozens of seats in Congress according to historical precedent and the low favorability of President Biden. That didn’t happen.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, QAnon

The surprising strength of Democratic candidates around the country is a welcome relief to Democrats, and a stinging wound for Republicans. Under the circumstances, the losing party would ordinarily commence a political autopsy to ascertain what went wrong and how to fix it. But, true to form, the Trump Republican Party refuses to behave rationally, even in their own interest.

RELATED: Rep. Raskin: Donald Trump is the Problem of the Republican Party and He May Destroy Their Party

On Monday morning GOP grouch, Marjorie Taylor Greene, was a guest on Steve Bannon’s “War Room.” And her post-election postmortem was as predictable as pestilence at a trash pile. As usual, Greene displayed the hallmark Republican aversion to taking responsibility for anything, when they can just shift blame to others. On that score, Greene summed up the GOP’s electoral defeats thusly…

“We lost in 2020 because of the mail-in ballots and because it was ripe for election fraud. And now we’re watching it again, especially in Kari Lake’s race over in Arizona. This shouldn’t be this way. Everyone was calling for a “red wave.”

“Either all the pollsters were wrong and they need to be fired – and that’s Republicans, Democrats, and every media pollsters saying that we were going to get a red wave, or we have to finally acknowledge the fact – or at least we have to get the other side to acknowledge the fact and admit the truth – that mail-in ballots is the biggest problem in our election and it is going to be a major factor going forward into 2024.”

Greene began her harangue by reaching back to the 2020 presidential race that Donald Trump lost decisively by more than seven million votes. For the past two years Greene and her Republican confederates, led by Trump and his “Big Lie” lie, have failed to produce a shred of evidence that there was any significant election fraud. And they have likewise proven no fraud in 2022 either.

Nevertheless, Greene is outraged by the pollsters she alleges contrived a deliberately false narrative of a massive Republican victory. Bear in mind that Republicans have been bashing pollsters since way before this year’s election. So it’s curious that she is now singling them out for criticism when she has never accepted them as reliable sources before.

What’s more, Greene’s undermining of democracy by casting false doubts on mail-in voting is a preview of where Republicans will be going in the next few months as they continue their crusade to suppress the vote by making it harder to participate.

Now Greene is calling for pollsters and other alleged perpetrators of that “red wave” rhetoric to be fired. Okay. In that case Greene is advocating for the mass termination of everyone at Fox News…

Firing the notoriously dishonest partisans at Fox News would just be the start of the house cleaning that the media requires. Media outlets such as Newsmax, OAN, Breitbart, even Greene’s host this morning, Steve Bannon, should be next on the firing line. Bannon predicted that Republicans could pickup 100 seats this election. He was only off by about 100.

Greene is among the most extreme members of the GOP caucus in Congress. And her refusal to accept reality with regard to the race is typical of her party peers. Which is good news for Democrats. The more delusional Republicans are about what happened this week, the lees able they will be to correct course. Which could pave a the path for another Democratic rout of the GOP in 2024. All thanks to the madness of Greene et al.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Goes on Berserk Impeach Everybody Rant and Challenges Biden to a Debate

The Chairperson of the Republican’s House Crackpot Caucus, Marjorie Taylor Greene, is demonstrating again how critical she is to the Loony Fringe contingent of the GOP. And since she has no committee assignments or other pressing duties in Congress, she is free to spend all of her time on the wingnut web TV circuit promulgating hate and lies.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, QAnon

On Saturday morning Greene was a guest on Steve Bannon’s webcast. Bannon, who was recently convicted on two counts of contempt of Congress, invited Greene on to discuss what she regards as the top priorities of the Republican Party should it manage to take the majority in the midterm election. And what are those priorities? Well, According to Greene, “Joe Biden and his family will be a top target. And so will the CDC, the FBI, the Department of Justice, Department of Education, Homeland Security, and many other federal government entities.”

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

That’s right. The GOP intends to abandon their obviously phony rhetoric about inflation, crime, and immigration, in order to pursue an entirely baseless path of persecution and vengeance. Because pathological hatred is the defining characteristic of Donald Trump’s Republican Confederates. And Greene was happy to reiterate that position on Bannon’s aptly named “War Room.” Greene raged that…

“That’s how we’re going to impeach Joe Biden. That’s how we’re going to impeach Merrick Garland. That’s how we’re going to impeach Secretary Mayorkas. And I’m going to continue to call for it and push for it cause that’s what the American people want. The polling is there, Steve. It is there.”

Never mind that Greene has no rational reasons for impeaching anyone. She proved that when she filed her articles of impeachment for President Biden on the first day of his presidency. The entire bill was about Hunter Biden, and it was so preposterous that it got only one GOP cosponsor.

Perhaps Greene is upset that Biden neglects his presidential duty to tweet all day and night, and to post dozens of flattering videos of himself (as established by her messiah, Trump).

Biden himself addressed the GOP’s inbred malice saying that “I’m already being told, if they win back the House and Senate, they’re going to impeach me. I don’t know what the hell they’ll impeach me for.” Neither do they. But despite her lack of coherent cause, Greene won’t be deterred from her malicious mission. She also told Bannon that…

“If Joe Biden wants to talk to me about why I want to impeach him, or why he’s going to be impeached, why America wants him impeached, then I’d be happy to have that discussion with him on a debate stage. And I challenge him to that debate. Because I would love to bring forward the evidence, and I’d like to see him try to defend himself. He’s guilty and he’s going to be impeached.”

First of all, Biden shouldn’t and wouldn’t lower himself to debate “Empty Greene.” More to the point, twice now Greene has said that the American people want Biden to be impeached. Although she doesn’t bother to reveal where she got the deranged notion. For the record, a recent University of Massachusetts Amherst Poll found that only 34% of respondents agree with her. That’s the baked in GOP/QAnon faction of the electorate. It’s made up of 68% of Republicans and Trump voters. So there are even 32% of them who don’t think Biden should be impeached.

Greene is actually being helpful in a backhanded manner. She is illustrating superbly why it is so important that Democrats turn out to vote and that Republicans are turned out of office. The GOP is wholly fixated on revenge. They couldn’t care less about the well being of the nation or the people. In fact, they have pledged to sabotage the national (and international) economy. And if they prevail in the midterms, Greene has telegraphed precisely what that would mean for the future…

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

Three months ago Steve Bannon, the former campaign chairman for Donald Trump, was found guilty on two counts of contempt of Congress. And on Friday he was sentenced to serve four months in prison and pay a $6,500.00 fine. This is just the beginning of Bannon’s legal burdens, but it’s a start.

Click here to Tweet this article

Shortly after the sentence was announced, the usual suspects from Trump’s Cult Defense Brigade commenced their whining and whitewashing on Bannon’s behalf. There was an outpouring of solidarity for a man who was previously convicted of defrauding Trump’s own supporters with a phony fund to build a border wall. Bannon was pardoned by Trump for that conviction. But he is still facing legal peril as a co-conspirator in a plot to overthrow the United States government.

RELATED: Trump Aide Confesses Coup Plot with Bannon, Cruz, and 100 Congressional Co-Conspirators

Bannon has already promised to appeal the conviction on grounds that he was only following his lawyer’s advice. That’s a bizarre argument that seeks to excuse any criminal behavior if your lawyer suggests it. First of all, the client is responsible for accepting or rejecting the advice of an attorney. Secondly, if an attorney advises a client to break the law, that attorney’s license should be revoked.

Bannon’s appeal is unlikely to succeed and he will eventually be incarcerated. However, he won’t be alone – at least in spirit. Many loyal StormTrumpers are pledging to “Stand With Steve Bannon!” First and foremost is Lisa Boothe of Fox News who said that…

“I stand with Steve Bannon. This isn’t justice. It’s tyranny and total bullshit. We need to do this to Democrats when we regain power.”

Really? So what we have here is a Fox News host and political contributor asserting that Bannon’s sentence is just the sort of “tyranny and total bullshit” that Republicans should engage if they manage to achieve a majority in Congress next month. Good to know. Although that has been the clear objective of the GOP for decades, it is rarely admitted so openly. And the same sentiment is being proudly expressed by many other disciples of Trumpism…

Make no mistake about it, Republicans are steadfastly pro-tyranny and anti-democracy. They refuse to accept any electoral outcome wherein they are the losers. They are actively striving to steal future elections via gerrymandering, phony electors, suppressing voter access, and gaining control over vote counting operations.

What’s more, they have explicitly stated that they will purposefully cause great harm to the nation in order to get their way. Which makes it all the more imperative that Democrats show up on or before November 8 to cast their ballots for preserving American democracy. Because that’s what is at stake.

Tucker Carlson Hypes Steve Bannon Conspiracy Theory that FBI is ‘Purging’ Trump Supporters

You know for sure that you’re scrapping the bottom of the barrel when you’re reporting “news” based on what Steve Bannon says. And that’s where Tucker Carlson of Fox News found himself on Friday. Not that Carlson’s sources for news have ever been credible, or even sane.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

Carlson’s Friday episode of his “White-Wing Power Hour” featured a segment that began with the moth-eaten “Fox News Alert” banner that adorns every story on the network, from immigrant caravans full of diseased gang members, to Democrats desexualizing animated candy characters..

RELATED: OH NO! Tucker Carlson is Turned Off By ‘Less Sexy,’ ‘Unappealing’ Cartoon M&Ms

Carlson was in his typical state of confused hysterics over another sensationalized event he heard about from one of his crack (addicted?) stringers. According to incorrigible felon, Steve Bannon, the “jack-booted Gestapos” of the FBI are on a rampage, “raiding” the lairs of dozens of “innocent” Trump cult followers at the direction of President Biden. Never mind that there is no evidence whatsoever of any such raids. That doesn’t deter Carlson from reporting this fake atrocity as fact…

“So a remarkable story… A Fox News alert for you. We don’t know the parameters of it but apparently the FBI has launched a full-scale purge of supporters of Donald Trump. That would be Joe Biden’s likely opponent in the upcoming presidential election. And that purge has intensified significantly today. So Steve Bannon just said that yesterday alone, the FBI raided the homes of dozens of Trump allies.”

Notice that Carlson is asserting this nonsense as fact despite admitting that he doesn’t “know the parameters” of the fiction he’s disseminating on national TV. He portrays this imaginary injustice as a “full-scale purge” of Biden opponents whose homes were pillaged by rogue agents of the law. Purged from what, he doesn’t say.

Carlson went on to interview an attorney who said that she represented the alleged victims. But by her own count they were only three of them, and none of their homes were raided. They merely received subpoenas for information relating to crimes involving alternate electors, illegal fundraising, and the January 6th insurrection that Trump incited.

Throughout these segments, Carlson displayed chyrons on screen that said “FBI Reportedly Raids Dozens of Trump Supporters” and “Up To 50 Trump Supporters Raided Across the U.S.” Once again, there were no credible reports of any raids, even by the victims’ lawyer. The only “report” came from Bannon, who said without any verification that…

“There were 35 senior members of MAGA, Republicans, supporters of Donald Trump that the FBI rolled in on.”

This whole horror story appears to have been hatched after ABC News reported that a federal grand jury is investigating Trump’s ridiculously named “Save America” PAC for potentially unlawful fundraising schemes…

“A federal grand jury investigating the activities leading up the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and the push by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the result of the 2020 election has expanded its probe to include seeking information about Trump’s leadership PAC, Save America, sources with direct knowledge tell ABC News.” […]

“The subpoenas, sent to several individuals in recent weeks, are specifically seeking to understand the timeline of Save America’s formation, the organization’s fundraising activities, and how money is both received and spent by the Trump-aligned PAC.” […]

“Trump and his allies have consistently pushed supporters to donate to the PAC, often using false claims about the 2020 election and soliciting donations to rebuke the multiple investigations into the former president, his business dealings, and his actions on Jan. 6.”

From that seed of truth, Bannon and his confederates in the Trump propaganda factories, manufactured these allegations of non-existent raids. And Carlson was only too happy to pick up the ball and run with it. Yet somehow this sort of crapola is allowed to be aired on a network that claims to report the news, by a host who has argued in court that he can’t be held responsible for defamation because “no reasonable person” would ever believe what he says. Unfortunately, there are way too many unreasonable persons watching – and believing – Tucker Carlson and Fox News.

Fox News Spews Knee-Jerk Defense of Wannabe Dictator Trump After FBI Search of Mar-a-Lago

In what everyone – including Donald Trump – is calling an unprecedented act by federal law enforcement authorities, the Trump compound at Mar-a-Lago was the subject of a search warrant by FBI agents in connection to Trump’s potentially criminal removal and possession of classified documents from the White House.

Click here to Tweet this article

Donald Trump Fox News

Republicans and right-wing media are fixated on the unprecedented nature of this operation, while desperately seeking to ignore the criminal part. But the only reason it is unprecedented is because no president has ever acted so brazenly in the commission of crimes as Trump. And even while he rages over the indignity of being held accountable to the law like any other American, Trump frantically scrambles to shift attention away from his legal troubles, to unrelated matters about everything from the his Russian collusion scandals to Hillary Clinton.

RELATED: Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Bunker Has Been Raided by the FBI, and His Reaction is Predictably Bonkers

As soon as the story of the FBI visit to Mar-a-Lago broke, Fox News went to work obediently excusing Trump’s legal malfeasance and baselessly accusing President Biden and the Democrats of engaging in an improper persecution of The Former Guy. In an Olympian feat of projection, they likened it to third-world and/or fascist tactics. Never mind that they couldn’t provide a shred of rational support for their wild charges.

The usual suspects at Fox News launched into hysterical defenses of Trump, affirming their role as boot-licking sycophants. It began with Jesse Watters who presented a parade of Trumpist Fox contributors such as Dana Loesch and Dan Bongino to malign the “radical leftists” at the FBI.

That led into Will Cain, sitting in for Tucker Carlson, who somehow managed to book Lara Trump on a moments notice. The thrust of her attempt at whitewashing the affair was that her sugar-daddy-in-law just “loves to save things like newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, photographs.” Yeah, that’s the ticket. He was just scrapbooking. She went on, of course, to divert the low attention span Fox viewers, directing them to “Look at Hillary Clinton. the 33,000 emails that she just deleted.”

The headliner for the night was Sean Hannity. And he didn’t disappoint, so lang as your analysis is based on flagrant deception and hostility. Hannity brought on another unbiased guest, Eric Trump, who said that…

“Going back to Hillary [Clinton], There’s a whole lot of other things. How about the Benghazi scandals? How about the Clinton Foundation? I mean, how many shady oligarchs from Russia were contributing to that? How about Uranium One? You want to talk about scandals that were never investigated, never vetted?”

Literally every item that Eric uttered was a non-scandal that was indeed investigated and had been proven to be fabricated. Clinton testified under oath for eleven hours (something Trump is too cowardly to do), and no evidence of wrongdoing was found. The Clinton Foundation is a pillar of the charitable world, receiving the top rating from charity watchdogs. As opposed to Trump’s foundation that was shuttered by New York authorities for committing fraud. The Uranium One matter was a wholly contrived sham created by Fox News and the GOP.

Eric also explicitly accused Biden of being at the head of the imaginary cabal against his father. And for an added serving of comedy, Hannity punctuated his propaganda by dementedly messing up the old adage about dotting i’s and crossing t’s…

Much of the wingnut argument on Fox News has been centered on a campaign to literally defund the FBI. That’s quite a reversal from their prior position attacking Democrats for being anti-police. What’s more, they have entirely – or conveniently – forgotten that the FBI director, Chris Wray, is a Trump appointee. They even brought in felon Steve Bannon, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, but was later pardoned by Trump. Bannon advocated for cutting off funds to the agency that he lied to:

“The House leaders right now need to step up and recommit Jim Jordan. Full investigation, I think, cutting off appropriations to the FBI to get to the bottom of this. This is gonna continue on. The FBI right now is the Gestapo.”

At least Bannon didn’t insult the FBI as being gazpacho. However, this take by Fox’s Todd Starnes may truly be the most deranged…

One thing all of this Trump-fawning settles is the question as to whether Fox News is still on Trump’s side. Clearly they are as worshipful of Trump as ever. There may have had a brief moment wherein a couple of Murdoch’s newspapers went off script, but Fox News itself is still a fully indoctrinated mouthpiece for the Trump cult.

Trump Attorney Announces Laughable Lawsuit Against CNN for Accurately Calling Trump a Liar

Donald Trump is nothing if not predictable. Whenever he encounters bad news he responds reflexively by going on the attack. Often that manifests in his declaring an intention to file a lawsuit against those he deems to have offended him. For the most part, his antics fail to achieve anything except to waste the time of the court and/or to humiliate himself.

Donald Trump, CNN

With the profoundly effective investigation of the January 6th insurrection being conducted by the House Select Committee, Trump is at it again. The Committee is masterfully presenting evidence of the multitude of crimes that Trump has committed. So in a transparent attempt to deflect attention from his legal peril, he is flinging ludicrous threats of lawsuits around that have no plausible chance of success.

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

Lindsey Halligan, one of a string of Trump’s incompetent attorneys, appeared this week on recently convicted Steve Bannon’s ‘War Room’ podcast to announce a threat to sue CNN. The complaint is typically preposterous and offers more opportunity for comedy than for anything of any legal importance. Halligan told Bannon that…

“CNN branded president Trump as a liar and referred to his questions regarding voter fraud as the ‘Big Lie,’ which is actually linked to Adolph Hitler. So it’s pretty simple. If you’re going to call someone a liar, back it up with research, well founded facts. Otherwise, don’t report it. Don’t distort the truth. […] CNN responded to our letter today, advising us that they will not retract any of the statements. So they will be getting served with a lawsuit very shortly, I believe.”

This lawsuit could be the hottest streaming entertainment of the season. If Trump hopes to make the case that CNN defamed him by calling him a liar, he’s going to have to produce evidence that CNN’s reporting is false. That’s going to be be a tough sell considering that Trump has been documented to have told more than 30,000 lies during occupancy of the White House.

Specifically with regard to the “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him, Trump will need to contradict all of his own White House aides who advised him that there was no significant voter fraud. They include his FBI director, Chris Wray, his DHS chief of cybersecurity, Chris Krebs, and his Attorney General, Bill Barr, who called such claims “bullshit.”

RELATED: AG Bill Barr on Trump’s Big Lie: We Realized From the Beginning it Was Just Bull****

Consequently, CNN will have little trouble affirming the accuracy of their reporting. What’s more, through the process of discovery, they can force Trump to provide further proof that he was repeatedly warned that his election fraud allegations were totally bogus. Which will result in this lawsuit suffering the same fate that his prior legal stunts did. For instance…

Trump’s latest legal threat, like those that preceded it, is drawn from the same pool of ignorance that Trump has always wallowed in. It is just another attempt to create a distraction, to abuse the justice system, and to drain donations from his glassy-eyed cult followers. Which, in the big scheme of things, is really all he cares about.

GUILTY Steve Bannon Only Has One Disappointment? And It’s Apparently that He’s a Flaming Moron

Justice was served Friday morning when Donald Trump’s former campaign boss and White House advisor, “Sloppy” Steve Bannon was found guilty on two counts of contempt of Congress. It was a pretty open-and-shut case considering that Bannon didn’t even offer a defense for his having refused to comply with lawful subpoenas.

Following the verdict, Bannon gave a statement outside of the courthouse, which has been his practice for the past few days that the trial has been in progress. And true to form, Bannon merely unleashed his incoherent rage in bursts of insults and nonsense. After disingenuously “thanking” the jury that convicted him for “whatever they did,” Bannon babbled…

“I only have one disappointment. And that is the gutless members of that show trial committee, the J6 committee, didn’t have the guts to come down here and testify in open court.”

REALLY? Who wants to tell Bannon that the members of the House Select Committee investigating the insurrection that Trump incited, had no obligation to appear before that court? They had no relevant testimony to contribute. They weren’t even asked to show up. The crime that Bannon was charged with was his failure to comply with a lawful subpoena. The evidence of that was obvious and undisputed. Bannon even bragged about it.

Bannon is actually lucky that Committee members weren’t witnesses at his trial. It would only have made things worse for him as they could have supplied more testimony and documentation of his obvious guilt. And yet, he somehow believes that their absence is his sole disappointment? Yeah, right.

Furthermore, Bannon’s hysterical post-verdict venting was a display of Olympic-grade hypocrisy. It was, after all, Bannon who “didn’t have the guts” to “testify in open court” at his own trial. Nor did he have the guts to testify before the January 6th Committee in support of his almighty messiah Trump. Why is that all of Trump’s most devoted disciples have been too scared to take the oath and tell the truth about him? Which Trump has whined about, despite being the reason for it.

It was Trump who pretended that he could grant executive privilege to potential witnesses so that they would not have to testify. But why would anyone want to prevent testimony from those who they allegedly believed would exonerate them? Even so, Trump eventually released Bannon from that imaginary constraint by waiving the privilege that he didn’t have to begin with. And Bannon still refused to comply with the subpoenas. The only “gutless” party in this matter is Bannon.

However, Bannon has good reason to be afraid. His partner in crime, Trump’s former White House trade advisor, Peter Navarro, has already confessed to allegations associated with Trump’s seditious coup conspiracy, and explicitly named Bannon as a co-conspirator. And although Trump issued him a pardon, Bannon could still be liable for tangential crimes related to his border wall scam that ripped off Trump supporters.

Bannon is now directly challenging Rudy Giuliani for the title of Dumbest Trump-Fluffing Blowhard. And if Giuliani doesn’t make any more appearances fondling himself in Borat movies, Bannon may actually take the lead.

LOLOL: Trump Waives Privilege He Doesn’t Have So Bannon Can Lie to the January 6th Committee

Poor Donald Trump. He is still wallowing in the delusion that he has presidential prerogatives that were thrown out at the same time that he was thrown out of the White House by the American People. There is nothing more pitiful than a wannabe dictator acting out his imaginary authority and issuing decrees that he has no power to enforce.

Donald Trump

On Saturday Trump wrote a letter (posted below) to his former campaign boss and White House aide, Steve Bannon, waiving executive privilege so that he can testify before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection that Trump incited. Never mind that Trump has no power to either grant or waive executive privilege, a determination that was affirmed by the Supreme Court that has a conservative majority, including three Trump appointees.

However, Trump’s letter was a hot mess for so many other reasons. His language was reflective of the rage-fueled rants that he has been disgorging for years. And he offered no legal argument to support his position. What follows are a few choice excerpts of the clownish idiocy that Trump was not embarrassed to commit to paper:

“I write about the Subpoena that you received in September 2021 from the illegally constituted Unselect Committee, the same group of people who created the Russia Russia Russia scam, Impeachment hoax #1, Impeachment hoax #2, the Mueller Witch-Hunt (which ended in no “Collusion”), and other fake and never-ending yarns and tales.”

First of all, Trump is invalidating his whole waiver by writing that the it applies to a subpoena from “the illegally constituted Unselect Committee.” There is no such thing a an “Unselect Committee.” So there is nothing to waive. Also, the actual Committee was lawfully formed by Congress. And Trump’s regurgitation of his childish chants about “Russia Russia Russia,” his two impeachments, and the Mueller probe (which did find cooperation with Russia’s election interference, as well as obstruction of justice on Trump’s part) is just a reprise of the lamest hits he plays for fans at his cult rallies.

The letter continues…

“When you first received the Subpoena to testify and provide documents, I invoked Executive Privilege. However, I watched how unfairly you and others have been treated, having to spend vast amounts of money on legal fees, and all of the trauma you must be going through for the love of your Country, and out of respect for the Office of the President.”

In addition to deploying his fictional invocation powers, Trump empathizes with Bannon’s tribulations and praises his patriotism. Recall that Bannon was a key figure in the insurrection who said the day before that “All hell is going to break loose tomorrow.” He was also indicted for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and money laundering in connection to his fake “We Build the Wall” campaign. He received a pardon from Trump for that plot to ripoff Trump supporters.

The letter continues…

“Therefore, if you reach an agreement on a time and place for your testimony. I will waive Executive Privilege for you, which allows for you to go in and testify truthfully and fairly, as per the request of the Unselect Committee of political Thugs and Hacks, who have allowed no Due Process, no Cross-Examination, and no real Republican members or witnesses to be present or interviewed. It is a partisan Kangaroo Court.”

Here Trump is opening a Grand Canyon sized gap for Bannon to slither through and avoid testifying. He is not entitled to determine the “time and place” for testimony. If he refuses on the basis of not arriving at an agreement, he is still in contempt of Congress. What’s more, Bannon’s response to the “waiver” included his willingness to testify in public. But the Committee routinely holds all of the initial depositions in private, and Bannon would not be treated any differently. This may be Bannon’s attempt exploit his testimony in order to create a media circus, which the Committee will never agree to.

Furthermore, Trump’s complaint that there has been “no Due Process, no Cross-Examination, and no real Republican members or witnesses,” is illustrative of both his ignorance and dishonesty. Due process and cross examination are elements of a court trial, which a congressional committee is not. And literally every witness that has testified publicly to date was a Republican hired by Trump.

The letter continues…

“Why should these evil, sinister, and unpatriotic people be allowed to hurt and destroy the lives of so many, and cause such great harm to our Country?

“It has been, from the time I came down the escalator at Trump Tower, a political hit job against the overwhelming majority of Americans who support the concept and policy of Making America Great Again and putting America First. Good luck in all of your future endeavors.”

If anyone is being hurt by these hearings, it is those who chose to violate the law on behalf of a seditious and criminal, former reality TV game show host. And as for the “overwhelming majority of Americans,” every poll shows that they favor Trump being held legally responsible for his treasonous activities. That’s just another fact that Trump has surrendered to his delusions and/or lies.

UPDATE: Adding another twist to the plot, Trump’s attorney, Justin Clark, told the Justice Department that “at no point did Trump ever invoke executive privilege over Bannon’s testimony.” More proof that the whole charade is a fraud.
