WATCH: OAN Concedes that ‘There Was No Widespread Voter Fraud’ to Settle Defamation Lawsuit

For more than a year and a half the crusade to keep Donald Trump’s cult convinced that the 2020 election was “rigged” has been supported by right-wing media outlets including Fox News, Newsmax and One America News Network (OAN). Their flagrant dishonesty resulted in the deadly insurrection in Washington, D.C. by brainwashed Trump disciples intent on preventing President Biden’s victory from being certified and undermining democracy.

Donald Trump, OAN

Another result of the conservative press disseminating blatant lies about election fraud was the filing of billion dollar lawsuits against them by voting systems companies:

Dominion sued Fox News for $1.6 billion.
Smartmatic sued Fox News for $2.7 billion, and later…
Added Newsmax and OAN to the lawsuit.

In addition to these lawsuits, OAN was sued by two election workers in Georgia who the network (and Rudy Giuliani) asserted had engaged in criminal misconduct while counting votes. There was never any evidence to support the charges and the network knew it. Which is why they recently settled with the election workers. And now they have aired a concession that their “reporting” was untrue. OAN admitted that…

“Georgia officials have concluded that there was no widespread voter fraud by election workers who counted ballots at the State Farm Arena in November of 2020. The results of this investigation indicate that Ruby Freeman and Wandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss did not engage in ballot fraud or criminal misconduct while working at State Farm Arena on election night. A legal matter with this network and the two election workers has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties through a fair and reasonable settlement.”

For the record, Georgia officials concluded that “there was no widespread voter fraud” a year and a half ago. It was OAN who continued to peddle lies about it until faced with this lawsuit. And their falsehoods fueled Trump’s “Big Lie” the election was “stolen,” wherein he had even cited the falsely accused election workers by name at his cult rallies.

This admission of “fake news” by OAN only relates to the incidents in Georgia. However, the network is still on the hook for broader allegations of defamation in the other lawsuits and they have altered their editorial stance on election fraud. In fear of further litigation, they placed a disclaimer on the air prior to a crocumentary by MyPillow’s Mike Lindell, disavowing any connection to it or its preposterous assertions. It’s title, “Absolute Proof” had the conspicuous flaw of containing no proof whatsoever. Not unlike the crocumentary by convicted election fraudster, Dinesh D’Souza.

OAN is going to have considerably more trouble arriving at a settlements with Smartmatic and Dominion. Their slander was more than just defamatory. It caused substantial financial and reputational harm. But OAN’s future is already in doubt since they were dumped by their biggest distributer, DirecTV.

And the same problem exists for Newsmax and Fox News. These propaganda pushers need to learn that there are consequences for deliberately promulgating malicious lies.

Tucker Carlson Hysterically Hypes Bogus Election ‘Fraud’ Film By Convicted Election Fraudster

A year and half ago, Donald Trump decisively lost the presidential election to Joe Biden. But the sting of that humiliation continues to torment the twice impeached, former reality TV game show host, and failed real estate con man. And in his desperation, Trump persists in peddling his “Big Lie,” the delusional, factless allegations that the election was “rigged.”

Fox News. Tucker Carlson

Throughout that same period of recent history, Fox News has embraced and dispensed Trump’s lies to their willfully gullible viewers. And now a new film is being pitched that purports to blow the lid off of the election fraud scandal. Surprisingly, its title, “2,000 Mules” is not a reference to the numerous jackasses who produced it. But unsurprisingly, it was featured on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program on Thursday night, between segments where he is fawning over Russian dictator, Vladimir Putin.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson: US is Only Aiding Ukraine to ‘Punish Russia’ for ‘Stealing Hillary Clinton’s Coronation’

Carlson introduced this segment with a trio of Democrats asserting, correctly, that “the 2020 election was the most secure in history:”

Rep. Adam Schiff: The American people chose Joe Biden to be their next president by an enormous margin. The successful conduct of that election, among the most secure in American history, was not an accident.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren: The 2020 election was the most secure conducted in modern history.

Rep. Eric Swalwell: You’re gonna see states like Arizona and Georgia learn the wrong lesson from 2020, the most secure election ever.

To which Carlson replied with a maniacal laugh…

“That’s just the most secure election ever. Really hair hat? Tell us how. He can’t tell us how. He’s just lying. Maybe it was the most secure election ever, but we have a right to determine for ourselves if it was the most secure election ever. Period. We have an absolute, god-given right.”

And the video of this malarkey was posted by Donald Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington:

“Hair hat”? Let’s just set aside that boneheaded attempt at an insult. Carlson is complaining that those who claim that the election was secure can’t confirm it. Of course the obligation to confirm rests with those who allege fraud. And they have had a year and a half, and more than sixty court cases, to prove their allegations and have failed entirely. It is Carlson and his cohorts who are lying. If he is so intent on “determin[ing] for ourselves” whether the election was rigged, what’s stopping him? Why hasn’t he, or Trump, or Fox News, done so yet? Perhaps because they know they are lying.

RELATED: WTF? Tucker Carlson Mocks Biden for Believing that He Won in 2020, Which, of Course, He Did

On this episode of Carlson’s propaganda-fest, he interviewed the film’s producer, Catherine Englebrecht. She’s the president of True the Vote, a rabidly partisan and thoroughly disreputable band of wingnut activists. Englebrecht worked with the convicted felon, Dinesh D’Souza, on “2,000 Mules.” For the record, after pleading guilty, D’Souza was convicted of – wait for it – campaign finance fraud! A crime so heinous that, naturally, Trump pardoned him. Now he’s using his experience as an election cheat to make false allegations about election cheating.

Needless to say, the film that Carlson and Fox News are promoting contains no evidence of voter fraud whatsoever. If they had anything incriminating they would have already presented it in court, under oath, where legal remedies could be addressed. But they continue to have nothing but wild accusations without a shred of proof. In fact, all the proof is held by those who certified the election.

The New York Times contacted election officials in all fifty states, including Republicans, and every one said that there was “no evidence of widespread fraud or irregularities in this election.” And several members of Trump’s own administration also upheld the legitimacy of election. For instance, the director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Chris Krebs, said that

“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. […] There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”

And that’s not all

Christopher Wray, FBI Director: We have not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise.

Benjamin Hovland, of the U.S. Election Assist­ance Commission: Time and time again, when the rubber hits the road, there’s no evidence — whether that’s in court cases, whether that’s in the presidential commission that was … an embarrassment.

Ben Ginsberg, Veteran Repub­lican Party Election Lawyer: As he confronts losing, Trump has devoted his campaign and the Republican Party to this myth of voter fraud.

Karl Rove: Mr. Trump must prove systemic fraud, with illegal votes in the tens of thousands. There is no evidence of that so far.

Attorney General William Barr: To date, [DOJ invest­ig­at­ors] have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a differ­ent outcome in the elec­tion.

Attorney General Barr later elaborated on his view telling ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl (in his recent book “Betrayal”) that “My suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bullshit.” Which, come to think of it, is actually a pretty good description of Carlson’s crackpot conspiracy theorizing, as well as the whole four years that Trump was occupying the White House.

Trump Spokeswoman Thrills QAnon Crowd with Call for Mass Arrests of Imaginary Election Riggers

The “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged” continues to be the top priority of Donald Trump’s endless crusade for constant attention, blind adoration, and the financial fleecing of his faithful flock. It’s almost all he talks about at his traveling cult rallies and staged, right-wing interviews.

Donald Trump, Fox News, QAnon

So naturally Trump’s spokes-shill and Twitter proxy, Liz Harrington, is hammering away at the same illusory issues. Harrington recently spoke at the “Patriots Arise” conference in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, a QAnon affiliated affair where crackpot conspiracies are welcomed with enthusiastic glee. According to reporting by Vice, Harrington painted a frightening picture of what would occur if they failed to address the fictitious election fraud that her boss is so obsessed with:

“It’s so important to have accountability and have that trust restored because otherwise you’re going to get more of it. There’s no accountability? Yep. They’re gonna start arresting political opponents. They’re gonna start throwing political dissidents in jail. They’re going to parade people and interrogate you for your free speech.”

OMG! Harrington is foretelling a dystopian future of oppressive, police-state tactics to clamp down on innocent Trumpists who are only worried that democracy has been subverted by communists, or Satanists, or whoever is the cartoon villain of the moment. Never mind that they have been unable to produce a shred of evidence of any election rigging cabal despite trying for more than a year and half.

RELATED: Trump Posts ‘Foolproof’ Evidence that the Election Was ‘Rigged’ But it’s Only Proof for Fools

However, Harrington has a solution to avoid this harrowing holocaust of political prisoners. And ironically it is centered on implementing a campaign of mass political arrests:

“You think it’s gonna be better next time? You really think if there’s no arrests made from 2020, if there’s no real exposing of it and getting these people and holding them accountable, you really think they won’t do it again?”

That’s right. If there are no arrests made of the perpetrators who don’t exist, then what never happened in the first place is all going to happen again. Harrington told Vice that “Anyone who violated election laws should be charged. They could start with those who committed election fraud felonies on camera.”

RELATED: WTF? Tucker Carlson Mocks Biden for Believing that He Won in 2020, Which, of Course, He Did

Harrington is absolutely right about charging election law violators. Although the biggest problem with her proposal, from her perspective, is that nearly all of the relatively few cases of election fraud so far uncovered were committed by Republicans and Trump supporters. In some cases the criminals were Trump’s closest associates, including his former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows.

RELATED: BUSTED! Donald Trump Jr Texted Mark Meadows With Illegal Schemes to Overturn the Election

Harrington’s demand that mass arrests be undertaken for crimes that she can’t prove took place is a gross subversion of justice. But the principle of holding actual wrongdoers accountable is honorable and appropriate. Hopefully the Justice Department is listening and will begin to hand down indictments for Trump and his accomplices who tried to orchestrate a violent coup. There is already ample evidence of those crimes – and many others – in the public record. Because, as Harrington helpfully pointed out, “if there’s no real exposing of it and getting these people and holding them accountable, you really think they won’t do it again?”

Trump Posts ‘Foolproof’ Evidence that the Election Was ‘Rigged’ But it’s Only Proof for Fools

Sixteen months after the 2020 presidential election Donald Trump is still whining petulantly about the election being “rigged” and “stolen” from him. In all of that time – including more than 60 court challenges – he has failed utterly to produce a shred of evidence. He has succeeding only in establishing himself as the biggest sore loser in American politics. Even his cult followers are bored with his schtick.

Donald Trump

Trump’s persistence in this lost cause continued Tuesday with a post by his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington. The tweet made some emphatic declarations regarding his insistence that the election was rife with voter fraud. He said that…

“This is 100% conclusive and determinative evidence. When will the Republicans finally act. Not only was the 2020 Election Rigged, but they’ll do it again. Leadership, for once, must step up to the plate and hit the ball out of the park. This is your chance. The people, who are disgusted with your weakness and indifference, are waiting. Schumer and Pelosi would never stand for this if it were the other way around. This is ‘foolproof,’ on video tape for everyone to see. Do something!”

Not surprisingly, what Trump is describing as “100% conclusive and determinative evidence” is neither conclusive nor determinative. It isn’t even evidence. Trump is regurgitating the results of a thoroughly disreputable pack of prevaricators known deceitfully as “True the Vote.” These election truthers put together a video collage of what they claimed were people committing felony voter fraud by depositing multiple absentee ballots in drop boxes in Georgia.

The only problem with that accusation is that everything seen on the videos was perfectly legal. According to Georgia law

“…mailing or delivery [of absentee ballots] may be made by the elector’s mother, father, grandparent, aunt, uncle, brother, sister, spouse, son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, mother-in-law, father-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, or an individual residing in the household of such elector.”

Additional authorized persons include caretakers for the disabled and employees of hospitals and prisons for voters thus confined. Nothing in Trump’s so-called “evidence” indicated that anyone depositing the ballots was not legally permitted to do so. What’s more, there was no way of knowing who the votes were for on those ballots. So even if the persons depositing them in the drop boxes were unauthorized, they may have been Trump voters who were in violation of the law. Which, more often than not, is the case.

And that’s not all. When Trump promised a couple of weeks ago that this allegedly incriminating evidence would be released, he said that it would reveal “four or five million people cheating.” Obviously, it would be impossible for that many ballots to be stuffed into the drop boxes. And, once again, since we still wouldn’t know who the votes were for, there’s no way the election outcome could be altered.

Nevertheless, on the basis of this baloney, Trump is demanding that some ambiguous “Leadership” figure “step up to the plate” and take some unspecified action. There is, of course, no legal path to the remedies that Trump and his cronies have babbled about for the past year, such as decertifying the election and coronating himself as King of America. It’s just more of the seditious coup plotting that Don Trump Jr was recently caught engaging in.

So Trump’s latest sorry attempt at proving that the election was rigged has just turned out to be another pathetic sham orchestrated by some really bad con artists. Who would have thought that such a conclusion to a Trump project would end up this big a failure?

In Jesus’ Name: Messiah Trump Promises Election Fraud ‘Truth’ is Coming Out – In Two Weeks?

The Cult of Trump is continuing its apocalyptic crusade across red America with yet another one of his traveling salvation shows. Following his humiliation in Georgia last month, where the paltry crowd was seen exiting while he was still in mid-rant, Trump ventured to Michigan to give it another go.

Donald Trump Messiah

One of the reasons that Trump’s circus is drawing fewer fans is that he insists on replaying the same tedious bits at every fan-fest. His set list consists solely of shouting at the “fake news,” chanting “lock her up” whenever Hillary Clinton is mentioned, and his interminable whining that the 2020 election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him.

The “Big Lie” was once again featured on Saturday night. The evening’s fare was foreshadowed in the event’s opening prayer, delivered by a fully ordained minister of Trumpism who warmed up the audience with this appeal to the Lard:

“So we pray. Father in heaven, we firmly believe that Donald J. Trump is the current and true president of the United States. You have raised him up for this season of time to be used and be part in saving a nation. Bless and protect him and his family from any physical, spiritual attacks and may his voice stir the people to righteous action to bring godly men and women into elected office, in Michigan and across America.”

So now God is being recruited as a witness to Trump’s divine ascendency to the throne of America. You would think that a pastor would be reticent to lie so blatantly to God’s face by calling Trump the “current and true president” when he clearly is not. Contrary to God raising Trump up, he very plainly slammed him down, which is why he’s still holding these pathetic freak shows. But the minister of lies continued saying that…

“We declare he will be back in office soon. VERY soon. In Jesus’ name. Amen. We pray the fraud in the 2020 election will continue to be exposed and the election decertified in Michigan. The battleground state in our nation. In Jesus’ name.”

With that declaration the affair was off to a bizarre and sacrilegious start. The audience was now ready for the main abstraction. Donald Trump. And he didn’t disappoint – well – no more than usual. As expected, Trump addressed the “Big Lie” in a tirade that he pretended would be brief (video below):

“And just to cover it quickly, because I don’t want to take a lot of time, but it’s coming, out this ‘Truth to Vote,’ where they found all the thousands and thousands of ballot harvesters. You’ve seen that. ‘Truth to Vote.’ But when you see that – that’s coming out in two weeks – when you see those numbers, I think it’s four or five million people cheating. Those numbers are coming out.”

That should satisfy the deadenders that showed up for this spectacle. After all, everyone recalls how trump delivered on his promises to produce a healthcare plan in two weeks. Or his infrastructure program. Or his border wall. He is nothing if not consistent – consistently wrong. He’s had more than a year to produce evidence of election fraud and has utterly failed to do so. Not that any of his glassy-eyed disciples will notice or hold him accountable to his word.

RELATED: Trump’s PRAVDA, er, TRUTH Social Twitter Clone Flops as it Misses Another Yet Launch Date

By the way, when Trump referred to “Truth to Vote,” he was mangling the name of the wholly discreditable conspiracy crackpots at “True the Vote,” who have never produced anything remotely related to the truth. Undaunted, Trump continued saying that…

“Now the press hates like hell to cover it. Oh, they go crazy cause they have a lot of live television. I’m talking about this, they don’t know what to do. They’re saying ‘Should we turn off the cameras?’ Who cares? But right here, just quickly, in Michigan your corrupt state officials sent out 7.7 million unsolicited mail-in ballot applications to everyone on the rolls. Including people who are dead and those who no longer live in the state. Other than that it was wonderful.”

Trump frequently claims that the media covering his rallies are turning their cameras on and off depending on what he’s saying. That is, of course, delusional. Although it is true that most of the TV news networks (including Fox News) stopped carrying his rallies live long ago. They realized that there was nothing newsworthy about his vein-bursting rage-a-thons. They are just full of nonsense like “When you hear ‘mail-in ballot’ you can guarantee you have a corrupt election.”

Never mind that Trump himself votes by mail-in ballot. So do all of the voters of five states (Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah, and Washington). So does most of our military deployed away from home. And even in his remarks Trump notes that the voters of Michigan received applications for mail-in ballots, not the ballots themselves. So there is no opportunity for voter fraud.

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

Not that any of that matters to Trump or his cult followers. For them it is all about stirring up anger and hatred and irrational fears. And by that measure, Trump is doing a pretty good job of terrorizing his ever shrinking flock.

Judge Cites Tucker Carlson as Validation of ‘Actual Malice’ in Defamation Suit Against Fox News

Ever since Donald Trump decisively lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden, he and his confederacy of lunkheads have been asserting the “Big Lie” that millions of votes were switched, manufactured, deleted, or otherwise tampered with in order to deny Trump the victory that only resides in his diseased brain. He had over a year and more than sixty court cases to produce the proof of the conspiracy he alleged, but failed entirely to do so.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson

Trump’s partners in this charade included much of the right-wing mediaverse, most prominently Fox News. And as a result, Fox News was named in a pair of multi-billion dollar defamation lawsuits, one by Dominion Voting Systems, and one by Smartmatic. that they accused of “stealing” the election from Trump.

This week a judge hearing the Smartmatic case declined to grant a motion by Fox News to dismiss it. It was a serious blow to Fox that leaves the propaganda outlet in deep legal jeopardy. But part of the judge’s reasoning for allowing the case to proceed must be profoundly embarrassing to Fox. According to the Washington Post

“The ruling repeatedly says Fox hosts, [Rudy] Giuliani and [Sydney] Powell made claims ‘without any evidence’ and ‘without any basis.’ It also says that claims made by Giuliani, Fox host Maria Bartiromo and now-former Fox Business host Lou Dobbs could meet the legal standard of claims being ‘so inherently improbable that only a reckless person would have put [them] in circulation.‘ […]

“In the course of laying out the legal requirements for Smartmatic to prove its case, the judge noted that the company must prove Fox met the standard of acting with ‘actual malice’ — i.e. not merely promoting false claims, but doing so with malice. And on that count, the judge says the best evidence that it did is Carlson.

That’s right! Tucker Carlson is Smartmatics’s best witness to certify that Fox News behaved with “actual malice” to defame the company. The judge’s ruling elaborated, saying that…

“Ironically, the statements of Tucker Carlson, perhaps the most popular Fox News host, militate most strongly in favor of a possible finding that there is a substantial basis that Fox News acted with actual malice.”

RELATED: Hillary Clinton also warned Fox News that They’re getting awfully close to actual malice in their attacks.”

The judge also wrote that because “Powell never provided the evidence requested by Carlson, and President Trump’s campaign advised Carlson that it knew of no such evidence [that] Fox News knew, or should have known” that the allegations were false.

What the judge was referring to was a commentary that Carlson delivered last November on his program wherein he described an interaction he had with former Trump lawyer Sydney Powell. He outlined her preposterous and utterly baseless allegations of voting machine tampering that, the disclosure of which, she said would be “biblical.” And despite her lack of any evidence, Carlson pointedly declared that he didn’t dismiss any of it. Because why would a shameless sham monger like Carlson care about evidence?

Nevertheless, he did ask her to present whatever evidence she had. She not only refused to do so, she got angry at him and told him to stop contacting her. But his having asked is what serves as the basis for the lawsuit meeting the “actual malice” standard. So Carlson isn’t validating the claim of defamation because he was caught lying, as one might expect. His validation is in the fact that he actually demonstrated that the election lies told on Fox News were deliberate and malicious.

In other words, Carlson is being cited in court as the truthteller on Fox who exposed his colleagues as defamers. How karmically perfect, albeit bizarre, is that?

Trump Hypes Convicted Election Fraud Felon’s Crocumentary About Election Fraud

For more than a year now, Donald Trump has been frantically scampering to scam suckers who are even more intellectually and emotionally damaged than he is. But his crackpot campaign to persuade people that the 2020 election was corrupted by a massive cabal of conspirators – despite never having been able to produce a shred of evidence – is just a pathetic pursuit to paper over his attempted coup, to which he publicly confessed.

Trump Lies

The latest display of Trump’s derangement came on Monday when he tweeted (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) an endorsement of a documentary that he claimed “shows the world exactly how the 2020 Presidential Election was Rigged and Stolen.” The statement gushed that…

“Highly respected Dinesh D’Souza, working together with Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote, just released a trailer to their new movie, ‘2,000 Mules,’ that shows the world exactly how the 2020 Presidential Election was Rigged and Stolen. The movie exposes the lies of the Democrats, RINOs, and Fake News who say it was the ‘most secure election in history.’ It was, perhaps, the least secure in history. The ballot box was stuffed, and stuffed like never before—and it’s all on video. Ballots were trafficked and sold in a massive operation in each Swing State. The evidence is so damning, what will the cowards who sat and did nothing about the stolen election say now? The way our votes were taken away is a disgrace to our Nation. It must be fixed.”

To refer to Dinesh D’Souza as “highly respected” is like referring to Hannibal Lecter as a distinguished gourmet. For the record, D’Souza is a felon who was convicted of – wait for it – campaign finance fraud! He pleaded to guilty to charges of multiple unlawful campaign contributions. So naturally, Trump pardoned him. Now he’s using his experience as an election cheat to make false allegations about election cheating. And D’Souza’s partners, True the Vote, are equally disreputable.

Trump whines that it was the “Fake News” that called the 2020 election “the most secure election in history.” Actually, that was Trump’s own Homeland Security officials. You have to wonder why, if the alleged “evidence” in this crocumentary is so solid, why haven’t they introduced it in court? Why did they make it into a movie that contains nothing verifiable and makes baseless allegations by known liars that are not under oath? Perhaps because the Trump team has already lost more than sixty court cases asserting election fraud that didn’t exist.

This is just another impotent attempt to spread Trump’s lies. It has no more legitimacy or proof of election fraud than the hilariously named “Absolute Proof,” a film by Mike Lindell (the MyPillow guy) that had so little proof that even the One America News Network (OAN) that aired it had to attach a legal disclaimer to distance themselves from the flagrantly bogus propaganda pic. It didn’t work. And neither will D’Souza’s pitiful effort to disseminate disinformation on Trump’s behalf. But that won’t stop Trump from slobbering all over it.

Desperate or Delusional? Trump Lies that Biden Admitted There Was Election Fraud in 2020

The fact that Donald Trump is a textbook example of a pathological liar isn’t going to make any headlines. His innate, self-serving aversion to the truth has been well documented. And despite the frequency of his deliberate diversions from reality, he persists in prevaricating with an utter lack of the shame that even a marginally decent person would muster.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

On Thursday morning Trump provided yet another example of his unabashed bullshittery. In a message posted by his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Trump reveled in what he thought (or pretended to think) was a concession by President Biden to his “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him:

“President Biden admitted yesterday, in his own very different way, that the 2020 election may very well have been a fraud, which I know it was. I’m sure his representatives, who work so hard to make it look legit, are not happy.”

Of course, Biden never “admitted” anything of the sort. In his psychotic state, Trump is either making this up or imagining it. Or perhaps a little of both. What Trump is deceitfully referring to are remarks Biden made in his press conference the day before. What Biden actually said was…

“I’m confident that we can take the case to the American people that the people they should be voting for – who are going to oversee whether your elections, in fact, are legit or not – should not be those who are being put up by the Republicans to determine that they’re going to be able to change the outcome of the election.”

And later in an exchange with Allison Harris of News Nation…

Harris: Speaking of voting rights legislation, if this isn’t passed, do you still believe the upcoming election will be fairly conducted and its results will be legitimate?
Biden: Well, it all depends on whether or not we’re able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election. [,..] Remember how we thought not that many people were going to show up to vote in the middle of a pandemic? We had the highest voter turnout in the history of the United States of America.

In both statements Biden was clearly referring to upcoming elections in 2022 and 2024. He was not – as Trump said – talking about the 2020 election at all, which has been hailed by Trump’s own Department of Homeland Security as the “most secure in American history.” All fifty states certified the election results, including those led by Republicans. And Trump lost some sixty court cases that alleged election fraud because he couldn’t produce a shred of evidence.

Biden has good cause to be concerned about future elections considering the efforts by Republicans to pass state legislation that suppresses the votes of likely Democratic constituencies. And the GOP candidates for posts that oversee elections in many states are pro-authoritarian extremists campaigning on promises to take elections out of the hands of voters, and place them into partisan legislatures.

These are things that worry Biden (and many Americans), and is what he was talking about in his press conference. But he was not in any way agreeing with Trump’s flagrant falsehoods about election fraud in 2020. To the contrary, Biden was encouraged by the record voter turnout in 2020, despite significant obstacles. His press secretary, Jen Psaki, affirmed that on Twitter, and in an interview Thursday morning on – of all places – Fox News:

“The point he was raising was both that in 2020, even amongst challenging circumstances, efforts to suppress the vote, and in the midst of a pandemic, there was record turnout – Democrats and Republicans – record turnout to go to the polls. And the point he was making was that the former president asked a number of states – seven or more in fact – to overturn the outcome of the election.”

Meanwhile, at his latest cult rally in Arizona, Trump literally advocated that Republicans should cheat in upcoming elections:

“We have more people than they do, but they know politics and they know cheating. I sometimes say, ‘Well, would the Republicans ever do what they did?’ […] I say if it’s good for them, why aren’t the Republicans doing the same kind of thing with the ballots?”

First of all, they most certainly do not have more people than Democrats. Republicans are a distinct minority of the electorate. They do, however, have more cheaters. So if that’s what he meant, we’d have to give it to him.

More to the point, Trump is urging his cult followers to commit illegal acts because he falsely believes that Democrats are doing so. That wouldn’t be a valid justification to break the law even if it were true. But if Trump knew or cared anything about the law, he wouldn’t currently be the subject of numerous criminal investigations.

Rudy Giuliani and OAN Sued Over Election Fraud Lies. What About Trump and Fox News?

As we approach the new year, the soap opera featuring Donald Trump and his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” continues unabated into its second insufferable season. And the cast of characters are thrust into evermore melodramatic scenarios as their nefarious acts are revealed to weary viewers yearning for the climax when they are all marched into prison.

Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump

The latest wrinkle in this script was played out Thursday with the news that Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, and his propaganda mouthpiece, One America News (OAN), are being sued by two of the victims of Trump’s election deceptions. According to Politico

“Two former Georgia election workers are suing Trump adviser Rudy Giuliani, One America News Network and several of the network’s top executives for pushing a series of debunked conspiracy theories about the workers’ role in the 2020 election that they said put them in physical danger and threatened their livelihoods.

“Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss, her daughter, worked as poll workers counting ballots at State Farm Arena in Fulton County, Ga., during the November 2020 election. […] ‘As a result of their vital service, Ms. Freeman and Ms. Moss have become the objects of vitriol, threats, and harassment,’ they said in Thursday’s complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington.”

Freeman and Moss were falsely accused by right-wing hacks of stuffing fake ballots into the election counting process. However, a fact-check at the time thoroughly debunked the sloppy and dishonest claims. Nevertheless, as Politico noted…

“Trump and his allies remained obsessed with the state, and with the lies they have spread about the election workers in Georgia. Trump mentioned Freeman by name in the now-infamous call he had with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in early January, where he tried to convince the election official to overturn his loss in the state.”

Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill, Liz Harrington, is still disgorging these lies. After Raffensperger posted an article that touted the accuracy of Georgia’s elections, Harrington sarcastically replied that it was “like Philly saying they’re the safest city in the country with the lowest murder rate.” But it was nothing like that at all. It wasn’t Raffensperger who assessed Georgia’s election efficiency. It was the ultra-conservative Heritage Foundation. Also, Harrington even got the info about Philadelphia wrong. It isn’t even in the top ten of cities with the highest murder rate.

All of this raises the question as to why Trump hasn’t been named in the lawsuit by Freeman and Moss. He has been relentlessly spewing accusations against the poll workers with no basis whatsoever. And his Ministry of Disinformation (aka Fox News) has been backing him up the whole time. In fact, Fox News has already been named as a defendant in billion dollar lawsuits filed by voting systems companies Dominion and Smartmatic.

Trump and Fox News have done real harm to individuals, companies, and the nation, with their flagrant and self-serving campaign of deliberate falsehoods. And they must be held accountable for that. The victims of their malicious mendacity have every right to be compensated for the damage done. And as these cases wind their way through the justice system, hopefully all of the evildoers responsible will be made to pay up – civilly and criminally. And first among them should be Trump and Fox News.

Chickensh!t Trump Dodges the Debate He Proposed After His Phony Challenge Was Accepted

On Sunday Donald Trump posted a tweet that purported to challenge journalists, politicians, or anyone else, to a public debate over his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” and “stolen” from him. Clearly the former reality TV game show host is still obsessed with his humiliating loss to President Joe Biden.

Donald Trump, Chicken

So Trump continues to whine petulantly while pressing his delusional assertions of voter fraud. Never mind that after over a year later he has still never been able to produce a shred of evidence of his charges. Had he done so he wouldn’t have lost more than sixty court cases that he filed, hoping in vain to overturn the election he lost decisively. Trump’s tweet (posted by his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) boldly dared any comers to step forward to face off with him on the subject of “voter irregularities and fraud on a massive and determinative scale.” And he explicitly called out the “members of the highly partisan Unselect Committee of Democrats.”

Let’s set aside the fact that it would make about as much sense to debate massive voter fraud with Trump as it would to debate that the moon is comprised of green cheese. Both are preposterous premises that don’t deserve any serious consideration. And Trump would debate like a pigeon playing chess: He would just knocks all the pieces down, shit all over the board, then strut around like he won.

However, if Trump were really interested in engaging the members of the bipartisan House Select Committee investigating the January 6th insurrection, he could simply volunteer to testify before it under oath. He could bring his alleged “evidence” with him and present it to the Committee on live television.

That access to a television audience is really the only thing that Trump is interested in. His tweet referenced it promising that “It will be a ratings bonanza for television!” Which is what he yearns for. Trump knows that his public profile has faded and he desperately wants to be relevant again.

However, Trump also knows that he can’t compete in a debate against anyone with functioning brain and an education beyond the third grade. Consequently, he followed up his Sunday tweet on Tuesday with one that said

“It’s really interesting, everybody wants me on television, I get the highest ratings by far, they need ratings to survive, and yet I put out a challenge to debate me about the massive election fraud, which took place in the 2020 Presidential Election, and there are no takers—think of it, zero takers for the so-called ‘ratings machine.’ The reason is, they know they can’t win. All I have to do is lay out the facts—they are irrefutable. I’ve supposedly won all my political debates, but this would be the easiest of them all! Swing state by swing state, they get decimated. This is the Hoax and the Scam and the Crime of the Century. Just remember, no takers!”

Poor baby. Trump seems to have lost whatever cognitive capacity he had left. First of all, he’s deluded himself into believing that everybody wants him on TV. But that’s only true if the program is live coverage of his trial and conviction for crimes against America. Even Fox News isn’t airing his cult rallies anymore.

Once again, Trump is babbling about “laying out the facts,” which he could do at any time if he actually had any. And he could do it without the reality TV trappings of a debate. As for his supposedly winning “all my political debates,” virtually every neutral observer who watched any of Trump’s debates scored them as embarrassing losses for Trump.

But the most ludicrous of his assertions in this tweet is his claim there are “zero takers” for his debate challenge. For sure, most politicians and journalists are not going to fall for this sham. Nor should they. They know it would be foolish to engage Trump’s lies and to feed his gargantuan ego. But there are takers, including Marc Elias, the attorney who argued and won most of the election cases that Trump or his minions filed. And there is Judd legum, a journalist who has covered Trump throughout his presidency. And there is also Hal Sparks, a noted political humorist. And there are many others who answered the call on Twitter.

The truth is that the Wimp of Mar-a-Lago never had any intention of showing up for the debate. Trump knew that he could just waive off whoever accepted as not meeting some unstated standard. Or he could do what he’s doing – just pretend that no one replied. Because Trump is a notorious coward who still avoids any interview that isn’t conducted by a bona fide Trump-fluffer. He confines himself to safe spaces like Fox News, where he fields softballs and is never challenged. And this fake debate offer was just the latest example of his spinelessness.
