Supreme Court Rejects MyPillow Huckster Mike Lindell’s Motion to Dismiss Defamation Lawsuit

The apostles of Donald Trump and his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged and stolen” from him are continuing to fail in their relentless and preposterous campaign to undermine democracy on behalf of Dear Leader Trump.

Donald Trump, Mike Lindell, MyPillow

Among the most prominent of the Trump cult disciples is the notorious MyPillow pitchman, Mike Lindell. For the past two years Lindell has been peddling Trump’s crackpot contention that there was so much voter fraud that the election results should be disregarded and Trump restored to power. Never mind that there hasn’t been a shred of evidence provided to support their conspiracy theories. And Lindell has been implicated in federal crimes related to his fraud mongering.

As result of their bogus claims, Dominion Voting Systems filed a billion dollar lawsuit for defamation against Fox News and others, including Newsmax, One America News Network (OAN), Rudy Giuliani, and Lindell. Last year an appeals court refused Lindell’s motion for dismissal. He subsequently appealed to the Supreme Court. And now that court has also rejected him

“The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from a prominent supporter of former President Donald Trump who is trying to fend off a defamation suit from a voting company he falsely accused of rigging the 2020 election.

“Michael Lindell, the founder of MyPillow and a regular presence at Trump’s rallies, is fighting a $1.3 billion defamation suit filed in federal court by US Dominion, the company that manufacturers voting machines used in several battleground states. Lindell’s effort was denied by a Trump-appointed U.S. District judge last year.”

This ruling by the Supreme Court affirms that Dominion’s charges of defamation are viable and that it can reasonably be construed that Lindell knew that what he was saying was false, or that he should have known.

This comes on the heels of another Lindell court loss wherein he filed his own defamation suit against Dominion and another company that made voting software, Smartmatic. That lawsuit was also thrown out, but not before Lindell bragged that it would be so successful that the Supreme Court would eventually rule in his favor 9-0, and would overturn the election and reinstate Trump. No, really…

“We’re gonna bring it to the Supreme Court. It’s gonna be 9-0. They’re gonna take this election down. And yes, Donald Trump will be your president. He is the president now.”

None of this should surprise anyone who has followed Lindell’s antics. He has been promising to expose the massive fraud and corruption of the American democratic system for two years. He has held symposiums where he guaranteed that irrefutable evidence would be presented. He produced a crocumentary that he called “Absolute Proof” that had nothing in it that was either absolute or proof. In fact, it was so lacking in credibility that when it was aired on OAN, they preceded it with a disclaimer that essentially disavowed it entirely.

RELATED: Watch the Hysterical Disclaimer For the MyPillow Guy’s ‘Absolute Proof’ Doc on OAN

So now Lindell has lost the ultra-rightist, Trump-fluffing OAN, and the Trump-dominated Supreme Court. Which can only mean that he will shortly be announcing that the REAL proof is going to be released in two weeks by the reanimated JFK, Jr and a committee comprised of Keebler elves. Stay tuned.

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 Hypocritically Hypes Hostile Hecklers Who Attacked Jill Biden While She Was Dining

Two and a half weeks ago the biggest story on Fox News was that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh had been “accosted” by protesters while he was dining at Morten’s Restaurant in Washington, D.C. Never mind that Kavanaugh never saw or heard the protesters, this exercise of the Constitution’s First Amendment rights was viewed by Fox News as an intolerable invasion of Kavanaugh’s privacy.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Friends

Fox News characterized the entirely peaceful event as something akin to domestic terrorism. Their outrage endured for several days and was featured on every one of their primetime programs. Their White House correspondent, Peter Doocy, humiliated himself by wasting the time of the Press Secretary, and the real journalists in the briefing room, by badgering her with petty and repetition inquiries about incident.

RELATED: Fox News Hack Peter Doocy Gets Stuck in Ludicrous Loop About Protesting Supreme Court Justices

So you might think that Fox News would be furious about protesters harassing First Lady Jill Biden as she was getting ice cream at a shop in Connecticut. You would, however, be wrong. Fox reported this episode in a story saying that…

“First lady Jill Biden was heckled by unknown bystanders on Wednesday as she walked into a Connecticut ice cream shop. ‘Your husband is the worst President we ever had, you owe us gas money,’ a man shouted at Biden as she walked into the Arethusa Farms ice cream shop in New Haven.

“‘Thank you! Thank you for your support, thank you!’ Biden responded with a smile and a wave. A second heckler then shouted at Biden, ‘You suck!'”

The protesters were not only rude and offensive, they were pitifully ignorant, blaming President Biden for high gas prices that are international commodities controlled by market factors and corporations that have been enjoying record profits.

More to the point, Fox News never expressed the slightest concern that Dr. Biden was confronted while engaged in a private activity, similar to what Fox complained Kavanaugh was subjected to. However, there were some stark differences. For one, Biden was well aware of the boorish protesters. She, nevertheless, responded pleasantly and with good humor.

Another difference is that, unlike Kavanaugh, Biden is not a political decision maker, making her an inappropriate target for such abuse. Protesting a Supreme Court justice who recently made an unprecedented ruling that will lead to great harm for millions of Americans is justifiable. Screaming at the First Lady, not so much. Especially because Dr. Biden, a teacher, was in Connecticut to bring attention to the learning loss suffered by children as a result of coronavirus lockdowns.

RELATED: In Desperation, Tucker Carlson of Fox News Resorts to Viciously Maligning Jill Biden

There is a distinct irony in the fact that Fox News considered the protests of Justice Kavanaugh an invasion of his privacy, considering that the concept of “privacy” in this context was the Constitutional right that Kavanaugh and his radically conservative colleagues took a way with their irrational decision reversing Roe vs Wade. And yet, Fox couldn’t find the same privacy argument to defend Biden on her ice cream outing.

The truth is that both Biden’s and Kavanaugh’s protesters were free to engage in peaceful demonstrations. The problem is that Fox News only has a problem with it when the subject is a right-winger. It’s the same prejudice that Fox exhibits in their support for the violent January 6th insurrectionists, who they portray as law-abiding tourists. Meanwhile, Fox’s Tucker Carlson maligns Stephen Colbert’s comedy players as the “real” insurrections when they were invited to interview members of Congress. Hypocrisy is almost too mild a term for this.

Fox News Recklessly and Purposefully Puts the Life of an Indiana Abortion Doctor at Risk

Last week a heart wrenching news story broke about a ten year old girl in Ohio who was raped and became pregnant. Making the ordeal that she and her family were facing even more traumatic, the family had to take the girl to Indiana because law in Ohio would force her to carry the baby of the rapist to term.

Fox News, Bullshit Factory

True to form, Fox News falsely asserted that the story of of the girl was fake. Tucker Carlson flatly said it was “not true.” Jesse Watters interviewed the Indiana attorney general who said that he’s investigating the Indiana doctor for unspecified misconduct. Pedophile-enabler, Rep. Jim Jordan, tweeted (and later deleted) that the story was “Another lie.” Fox’s view across the board was was that the story was a hoax aimed at “promoting” abortion and criticizing the recent Supreme Court decision that reversed Roe vs Wade.

RELATED: Jon Stewart Nails It: The Supreme Court is Now the Fox News of Justice

This week the alleged rapist was apprehended and pleaded guilty. Consequently Fox News shifted their coverage to feature assertions about the suspect’s immigration status, and attacks on the Indiana OB-GYN to whom the girl was referred.

In both cases they demonstrate that they are fixated only on the politics of the issue and have zero concern about the welfare of the child. They issued no apologies or retractions for any of the prior claims that the story as fake. Even worse, Fox News has now been identifying the doctor by name and photo, a reckless act that could put her life at risk.

There is a long history of violence against doctors and reproductive healthcare clinics. Reporting by Fox News has certainly contributed to these horrific statistics. Fox knows this, and yet they still engage in this sort of irresponsible and dangerous so-called journalism. Forbes reports that it’s getting worse…

“Abortion providers have been subject to thousands of criminal incidents since abortion became legalized in the 1970s, according to the National Abortion Federation, including 11 murders, 42 bombings, 196 arsons and 491 assaults since 1977.”

Indeed, it will get worse if Fox News gets its way. Their coverage of the issue is inciting radical right-wingers to commit more crimes, just as their coverage of Trump’s “Big Lie” does. And they are pushing those hostile themes even as they falsely accuse Democrats of promoting violence.

RELATED: Ted Cruz Lies to Fox News that Democrats are ‘Encouraging Violence’ After Roe v Wade Ruling

Democrats need to expose the callousness of Fox News and the Republican Party’s intent to encourage violent opposition to the rights of women and families. And a good start was made when Rep. Eric Swalwell righteously dressed down Jim Jordan, who was among those vilifying both the ten year old victim and her doctor…

Fox News Hack Peter Doocy Gets Stuck in Ludicrous Loop About Protesting Supreme Court Justices

The daily White House press briefing is supposed to provide an opportunity for the media to get information about the administration and inquire about matters of consequence to the public. Unfortunately, some reporters often seem more interested in contriving “gotcha” questions and trying to stump the press secretary.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Peter Doocy

Peter Doocy of Fox News is perhaps the most prominent example of a partisan shill who thinks it’s his job to manufacture political melodrama. His line of questioning is almost always focused on trivialities and serves as a diversion from serious matters.

RELATED: HAH! Jen Psaki Says Doocy’s Fox News Questions Would ‘Make Anyone Sound Like a Stupid S.O.B.’

On Friday Doocy seemed to get himself stuck in a loop wherein he wouldn’t stop asking the same question over and over. And despite Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre answering it clearly the first time, it didn’t stop Doocy from flinging it back at here as if he was a dog playing fetch.

The subject on Doocy’s mind was a report that protesters showed up outside of Morten’s Restaurant in Washington, D.C. after learning that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was dining there. This act of exercising the First Amendment apparently offended Doocy and resulted in the following exchange (video below):

Doocy: It’s okay if a justice is out to eat at a restaurant, that they can go and protest as long as they are what you consider peaceful?
Jean-Pierre: We have said that we want to see peaceful protests. That’s what we have said. We want to see the protests be peaceful. But when it comes to intimidation, that is something that we have condemned.

Jean-Pierre repeated several times that the administration condemns any intimidation or violence, and that the difference between that and peaceful protests is clear. She also noted that President Biden recently signed bipartisan legislation to protect justices.

Undaunted, Doocy kept rehashing the same question in slightly different forms. He already knew what the answer was, so his only purpose was to badger Jean-Pierre and score points with his viewers and his bosses at Fox news. He regurgitated…

“So where’s the line? If these protesters can go to a justice’s house, and they can go to a restaurant, where is it that you don’t think it’s appropriate for a group of protesters to go?”

[and…}

“Really? So these justices, because protesters do not agree with an opinion that they’ve signed onto, have no right to privacy, is what you’re saying?”

[and…}

“Is that creating a potentially really bad situation when there are people, even if they’re being peaceful at the time, they’re angry. And that’s why they would be there, right?”

Doocy is suggesting that there are only certain public places where it’s “appropriate” to protest. Perhaps he’d like to confine protesters to garbage dumps outside of town. Although you have to wonder if Doocy would approve of protesting at women’s health clinics and harassing their patients. And why does Fox News consider it “appropriate” for protesters (aka violent insurrectionists) to break into Congress and threaten its members.

RELATED: Jon Stewart Nails It: The Supreme Court is Now the Fox News of Justice

It is also ironic that Doocy introduces the concept of “privacy” in this context, since that’s the Constitutional right that Kavanaugh and his radical rightist colleagues took a way with their irrational decision reversing Roe vs Wade.

Finally, Doocy is very concerned that protesters might be angry. Because obviously you should only be allowed to protest things that make you happy. And his complaint about “potentially really bad situations … even if they’re being peaceful,” is another assault on the Constitution that violates the standard of prior constraint.

Jean-Pierre exhibited profound patience with Doocy’s relentless inquisition. And while she eventually told him that “I’m done here, Peter,” she should have cut him off sooner. His childish antics should not be tolerated. They are irrelevant to the important matters that need to be discussed, and they just waste everyone’s time.

Jon Stewart Nails It: The Supreme Court is Now the Fox News of Justice

The just ended Supreme Court session produced a number of historically disastrous decisions that are utterly disconnected from constitutional law. They ruled against a woman’s right to reproductive choice. They curbed the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate deadly carbon emissions. They weakened states’ rights to limit access to guns. They allowed religion to be forced on public school students.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Supreme Court, Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Barrett

These decisions are an assault on the principles of a free society. They will undoubtedly result in greater harm to millions of Americans, including many who will die due the Court’s radical biases and strict obedience to their extremist ideological dogma.

The rulings also have something in common with each other. They are all identical to the uber-rightist political positions articulated daily on Fox News. Both the decisions, and the faulty “reasoning” used to support them, are straight out of the mouths of Fox’s Ultra-MAGA hosts and guests.

That partisan conformity was recognized by America’s most prominent living humorist, Jon Stewart. “The Supreme Court is now ‘the Fox News of justice,'” Stewart recently observed. He further noted that the rulings emanating from the hard-right faction of this Court have no consistency, saying that “States can’t regulate guns, but they can regulate uteruses.” He continued…

“‘It is a cynical pursuit in the same way that Fox News would come out with ‘we’re fair and balanced’ under the patina of what would be a high-status pursuit to the betterment of society, journalism. They are a cynical political arm.”

Indeed. The conservative justices are no better than the hacks on Fox News who shape their commentaries to fit their prejudices. They are flagrantly constructing a legal foundation that reflects their staunchly right-wing conclusions, rather than the Constitution. Stewart also addressed the Senate confirmation process, saying that…

“When you look at the ridiculous kabuki theater now of justice confirmation, where they can just go out there and just fucking lie, like if this were about debate, then they would’ve understood what perjury meant.”

Stewart is referring to justices Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, and Barrett, who all told the Senate that they would respect judicial precedent and the settled law of cases such as Roe vs Wade. They lied. And now they are on the Court where their opinions are implementing the Fox News agenda. Some examples of the intertwining wingnut justices with Fox include…

The problem with Stewart’s otherwise appropriate observation is that the Donald Trump-appointed justices might regard the connection to Fox News as a compliment. They are not ashamed of their affiliation with the crackpot contingent in the media. To the contrary, they are proud of it. And because of their inherent power to interpret constitutional laws that affect every American, they are even more dangerous to the welfare of the nation than Fox News. Which is really saying something.

The Crowd Goes Wild for Allegedly ‘Misread’ Comment Thanking Trump for ‘Victory for White Life’

It didn’t take long for the Supreme Court’s ruling that overturned Roe vs Wade to become part of Donald Trump’s cult rally ranting. On Saturday he included the decision in his spiel before his glassy-eyed disciples, and took credit for it saying that it was “only made possible because I delivered” three ultra-partisan justices. For which credit actually belongs to Mitch McConnell.

Trump Charlotsville

It’s important to note that the judges Trump is so proud of were put on the court by a president who lost the popular vote twice, was impeached twice, and tried to overthrow the U.S. government. And their ruling defied the will of the American people who are rarely more united on an issue than they are about preserving the reproductive choice rights provided by Roe vs Wade.

RELATED: Ted Cruz Lies to Fox News that Democrats are ‘Encouraging Violence’ After Roe v Wade Ruling

Trump held his rally in Illinois in order to support the reelection of Rep. Mary Miller. In her remarks she also addressed the Court’s ruling and praised Trump for his role in securing it. She fawned…

“President Trump, on behalf of all the MAGA patriots in America, I want to thank you for the historic victory for white life in the Supreme Court yesterday.”

It isn’t often that such unbridled honesty is expressed in political speeches. Miller’s remarks are consistent with the right-wing agenda articulated by the “white replacement” theory (a favorite of Fox News Senior White Nationalist, Tucker Carlson) that fear mongers about an imaginary plot by Democrats to import dark-skinned foreigners to overwhelming the white electorate.

However, Miller later recognized the potential for backlash as she was severely chastised for her comments. So naturally, she had her spokesperson release a statement asserting that it was gaffe. “You can clearly see she is reading off a piece of paper,” he lied, saying that “she meant to say ‘right to life.'” But there are two things wrong with that sorry attempt at an excuse.

First of all, it isn’t reasonably possible to mistake the written words “right to life” for “white life.” They don’t look the least bit similar. She would have been better off saying it was a verbal gaffe, rather than a misreading.

Secondly, how does she explain the fact that the audience cheered effusively for what she actually said aloud? They couldn’t know if the written words were any different than the ones she spoke. They heard her say “victory for white life,” and they were thrilled by the sentiment that is so closely aligned with their racist principles.

Furthermore, Trump was standing right behind her when she it. He didn’t flinch, nor try to correct her. In fact, he smiled broadly with pride for his “white life” victory. And Miller didn’t attempt to correct herself either. Which should come as no surprise since she is the same person who once said that “Hitler was right on one thing. He said whoever has the youth, has the future.” That was a apparently her approval for emulating Hitler’s program of indoctrinating kids with propaganda. Part of the Republican “family values” platform?

RELATED: Tucker Carlson Smears Companies that Cover Abortion Travel Costs as Being ‘Against Families’

Given that Miller’s explanation doesn’t hold water, that the audience cheered wildly, and that no corrections were made at the time, it’s impossible to assume anything other than that it was intended. And the walk back only took place after they were flooded with criticism. Now they are trying to dig themselves out of a hole that they themselves dug with years of shoveling racist rhetoric. And they’re just upset that their true face is, once again, being seen by all.

Ted Cruz Lies to Fox News that Democrats are ‘Encouraging Violence’ After Roe v Wade Ruling

In the wake of the appalling assault on the Constitution by the Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe vs Wade, Republicans and their mouthpieces in right-wing media immediately set out to malign pro-choice advocates and protesters. It was a coordinated strategy to deflect from the fact that the vast majority of the American people oppose the decision and are committed to correcting the historic and unprecedented legal blunder.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Bullshit Factory

Naturally, Fox News was at the forefront of this propaganda crusade to slander peaceful protesters. And part of their plan included bringing on Sen. Ted Cruz to fabricate a phony chronicle of events. Cruz, of course, complied by spinning this utterly fictional account…

“I think there’s a real risk of violence. We’ve seen multiple Democrats now, including Maxine Waters, before that Chuck Schumer, before that the Biden White House, effectively encouraging violence. Chuck Schumer stood on the steps of the Supreme Court and threatened Justice Kavanaugh and Justice Gorsuch by name.”

There was no truth to anything Cruz was saying. Certainly no Democrats were doing anything that could be characterized as “encouraging violence.” Cruz’s comments were all out of context references from months or years ago. For instance, Chuck Schumer, reacting to a Court hearing on an abortion case, said in March of 2020 that Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh “have released the whirlwind and will pay the price.” That was more than two years ago. And Schumer even acknowledged at the time that “I shouldn’t have used the words I did, but in no way was I making a threat. […] My point was there would be political consequences.”

That concession was something that you would never hear from the Republicans fomenting violence, such as what occurred during the insurrection on January 6, 2021. But Cruz dredged up this old remark specifically to defame the pro-choice movement.

Cruz was joined in this campaign by Tucker Carlson who, following the Roe decision, said on his program that “Today you saw several elected members of Congress call for insurrection.” No, actually, no one saw that. But Carlson’s canard is reminiscent of his preposterous assertion that Stephen Colbert had engaged in insurrection when some of his staff performed a comedy routine in Washington.

RELATED: Stephen Colbert Hysterically Mocks Tucker Carlson’s ‘Comedy’ on the Arrest of His Staff in D.C.

Since the ruling was announced, the manufactured narrative from the ultra-MAGA politicians and pundits that pro-choice activists are engaging in an “insurrection” has just become more intense and bizarre. It’s a deliberately dishonest strategy contrived to both malign peaceful protesters and to trivialize the term that describes Donald Trump’s attempted coup on January 6th. And the GOP is stridently going even farther down the rabid hole. What follows are some examples of the wholly dishonest ravings of a desperate band of bullshitters:

Tucker Carlson Smears Companies that Cover Abortion Travel Costs as Being ‘Against Families’

The Supreme Court’s ruling that overturned Roe vs Wade is an unprecedented decision that, for the first time ever, removed a Constitutional right that had been affirmed numerous times for more than fifty years. And the judges responsible for the decision were put on the court by Donald Trump, who lost the popular vote twice and tried to overthrow the U.S. government.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, STFU

The American people are rarely more united on an issue than they are about preserving the reproductive choice rights provided by Roe vs Wade. Nevertheless, the Republican, anti-democratic forces in Washington managed to subvert the people’s will in order to impose a religious standard on the nation, in place of a legal one.

On Friday night Carlson launched a new, and patently offensive line of attack. He lashed out at private companies seeking to provide benefits to help employees get the healthcare they need when dealing with pregnancy and family planning. In states where abortion is now – or will soon be – illegal, these benefits will reimburse employees for costs to travel to states where their health needs can be met. And despite conservatives ordinarily supporting free market positions, Carlson is hypocritically attacking companies for trying to do what they believe is best for their employees and their business. He raged that…

“It’s obvious why it’s so important to America’s corporations, almost all of whom immediately weighed in to say, ‘We’ll fly you to get an abortion at the state of your choice.’ Why? Well, of course, employees without families are loyal to the company and, of course, it’s much cheaper to pay for an abortion than it is to pay for maternity leave, or an extra name on the insurance policy. So, it’s all about the money for corporate America. It always is. Families are bad for big corporations, therefore they’re against families.”

That is glaringly wrong for so many reasons, Let’s begin with the fact that it isn’t necessarily cheaper to insure an employee who seeks an abortion. For one thing, Carlson is assuming that everyone who gets an abortion doesn’t already have a family. That’s false. It’s also flagrantly false to suggest that employees without families – by which he means children – are more loyal to their employer. As a frozen food empire trust fund baby, whose father worked for the State Department, Carlson has never had a job that wasn’t handed to him by virtue of his wealth and elite status. Where do you suppose his loyalties lie?

More importantly, Carlson is making the repulsive argument that companies make employment decisions based on what it might cost to provide an employee with healthcare. By his own perverse logic, companies would (or should?) discriminate against an applicant who is diabetic, or has congenital heart defects, or suffers any other health challenges. Even those with families.

Carlson’s conclusion that corporations are “against families,” is not only exceedingly stupid, it ignores the fact that most corporate executives have families. He is also ignoring the broad diversity of the companies that offer the travel cost benefits. They include Meta (Facebook), Dick’s Sporting Goods, Amazon, Levi Strauss, JPMorgan Chase, Starbucks, and Tesla. Among media companies offering this benefit are Disney (ABC News), Warner Bros. Discovery (CNN), and Comcast (NBC News and MSNBC).

Conspicuously absent from that list is Fox News. Either they do not offer the benefit, or they don’t want anyone to know that they do and declined to respond to inquiries. So they are either callously indifferent to their employees’ well being, or they’re raging hypocrites. And it wouldn’t surprise anyone if it turns out to be both. After all, Fox News – and especially Tucker Carlson – have demonstrated that they don’t care about the health of their employees, or their viewers. Carlson recently endorsed nicotine addiction. No, really! And when it comes to COVID, Carlson was its biggest advocate. Those aren’t exactly pro-health, or pro-employee policies.

Biden Slams the ‘Extreme MAGA Crowd’ After Roe v Wade Leak. Fox News and Newsmax Prove He’s Right

The reprehensible roll back of constitutional rights by the conservative faction of the Supreme Court has triggered some interesting and asinine responses. By overturning Roe v Wade the Court has put the lives of millions of women at risk and set back civil liberties half a century at least. And the rightist activists on the Court, in Congress, and in the media, are just getting started.

“What happens if you have states change the law saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children? Is that legit under the way the decision is written? What are the next things that are gonna be attacked? Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in recent American history.”

Biden’s assessment of the extremist MAGAts was precisely on target. And although it was well known long before this Court ruling, the anti-choice zealots (three of whom were appointed by Donald Trump) reinforced their bona fides as radical regressives who don’t care about legal principles or precedents. And unsurprisingly, their devolutionary opinions were echoed in the wingnut media.

Laura Ingraham at Fox News imposed her hallmark hysteria in a harangue that made little sense outside of her warped imagination. She ranted…

“Imagine if the case was reversed and we had heard through release, egregiously, that the court was coming down the other way. And imagine if mobs of people descended at the Court, screaming what could be described as threatening language toward some of the Justices, or very derogatory language. Oh, you’d have Nancy Pelosi and the whole crowd up there today saying we need to wall off the city again. We need to put the fences back up. And those are the insurrectionists trying to undermine the legitimacy of the Court. That’s what they would be saying today and tonight.”

HUH? Ingraham is saying that if Roe was upheld and conservatives stormed the Supreme Court like they did Congress during the January 6, 2021 insurrection, that Nancy Pelosi and others would condemn that violent and lawless behavior. Well, of course they would. As should everyone. Ingraham seems to be implying that liberals and/or Democrats did that after the Roe opinion was leaked. But, directing Ingraham back to the world, they didn’t. That sort of seditious cretinism is unique to the right-wing StormTrumpers.

Not to be left out, Grant Stinchfield at Newsmax was intent on laying blame for the leak on an innocent liberal, despite having no evidence of who provided the draft document to the press. Stinchfield babbled that…

“I find it suspect that the first leak coming out of the Supreme Court in history comes shortly after Judge [Ketanji Brown] Jackson is confirmed. I want to know if her law clerks, who I am sure have already been hired – possibly even working at the high court already, before her swearing in – have access to these draft decisions. She would be my first suspect when it comes to the leak. Because Ketanji Brown Jackson is a radical, left-wing activist, more radical than any other Justice in the history of the Supreme Court. I believe she is capable of undermining the Court this way.”

WHUT? As someone who is not presently a member of the Court, Judge Jackson obviously has no access to documents. Nor do her, as yet nonexistent, law clerks. And the notion that she is “more radical than any other Justice in the history’ can only come from the delusions of a depraved partisan propagandist. Which is a description that fits Stinchfield like an exceedingly tight straight-jacket. He is, after all, the guy who contrived the infamous “Dandelion-Gate” scandal wherein White House staffers planted flowers so that Biden could pick some and give them to his wife, Jill.

These are the sort of inanities that pass for political discourse among the uber-conservative politicos and pundits. It does nothing to advance any substantive discussion of critical issues such as reproductive rights. But it does affirm, as Biden said, that the MAGA Crowd remains the most extreme – and more worrisome – dangerous political group in recent American history.
