The radical right, when they get a drum to beat, never stop banging it over their media megaphones. They are tireless in sticking to a few points and they hammer them endlessly. Hillary’s emails, Benghazi, Obamacare, Mueller Witch Hunt, Voter Fraud, Stolen Election, Illegitimate Democrat President (again!!!), etc.
Since I wrote this the other day (and forgot to post it) Ron Paul (see paragraph below about his principled, “patriotic” “answer” when asked if he believed Biden had been fairly elected) called for a vote about the “constitutionality” of impeaching Trump since he is no longer president. A shocking 45 of the 50 Republican senators voted “yea” to the shaky, legally dubious proposition that the Constitution prevents any accountability for an elected official who repeatedly summons, provokes and whips up a crowd that immediately turns into a deadly mob — and slips out of office while the Senate is in recess.
The logic is clear. If a president provokes a riot in the Senate to overturn an election result he attacks as a lie, but his impeachment trial is delayed because the Senate is on vacation for two weeks, then he can’t be tried for inciting the deadly attack. Pretty fucking simple, you have to admit, and certainly the way the sainted men who framed our constitution intended. Mitch McConnell announced that Trump had provoked the riot, it’s just… he was getting a leisurely bikini wax (probably also a turtle wax) and the Senate couldn’t get back together in time to do anything while the master was still in office. On his return, we have Mitch as Mitch: now that I’m back, bitches, I say it’s unconstitutional, clearly. That’s the way the cookie crumbles, cucks.
But back to our complicit mass media (all now announcing that Trump won’t be convicted, no matter how irrefutable the evidence against him presented at trial). It’s all about who wins the battle of talking points. As Trump said in his strong pre-riot address to his angry followers, during the speech where he once again claimed over and over that he’d won the stolen election in a landslide:
Now what they [the lying media] do is they go silent. It’s called suppression and that’s what happens in a communist country. That’s what they do. They suppress. You don’t fight with them anymore unless it’s a bad story. If they have a little bad story about me, they make it ten times worse and it’s a major headline.
But Hunter Biden, they don’t talk about him. What happened to Hunter? Where’s Hunter? Where is Hunter? They don’t talk about him.
We will not be intimidated into accepting the hoaxes and the lies that we’ve been forced to believe. Over the past several weeks, we’ve amassed overwhelming evidence about a fake election. This is the presidential election. Last night [run-off in Georgia] was a little bit better because of the fact that we had a lot of eyes watching one specific state, but they cheated like hell anyway. You have one of the dumbest governors in the United States [Trump loyalist Brian Kemp].source
“But Hunter Biden, they don’t talk about him. What happened to Hunter? Where’s Hunter? Where is Hunter? They don’t talk about him.“
First it was that Ukrainian liar Zelensky who refused to announce a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden after a perfect phone call that led to a totally bogus, illegal partisan witch hunt “impeachment” and now silence in the media about Hunter Biden, total silence! Trump’s not the only one suspicious about this suspicious silence on a huge scandal story the entire media was covering seriously at one time.
Here you go, boss. FOX has been flogging this debunked story for the last few days on youTube, and presumably on the air. The smoking gun that proves Hunter, a supremely dumb criminal, forgot about a laptop with all the incriminating Ukraine and China evidence on it that computer repair man John Paul Mac Isaac (if that is his name) turned over to America’s Mayor, super-lawyer Rudy Giuliani — irrefutable, covered-up proof that Joe Biden is a lying fuck.
Fair, balanced and constantly stirring the simmering shit pot of godless liberal treachery. You can tell by the still photo that this patriot in the odd hat is an honest American about to tell ‘opinion journalist’ Sean Hannity the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the pathologically criminal, insanely stupid Hunter Biden and his weak, sleepy, lying, doddering, stuttering, illegitimately elected Communist puppet father.
Stay tuned for FOX updates on the real, covered-up truth about Pizzagate and Benghazi– new information on the hidden basement child sex slave prison the liberal media denied exists and footage of Hillary laughing after she learned four Americans died in Libya, pursuant to her evil plan.
In related right-wing news, Sunday Senator Rand Paul would not admit that Biden had been fairly elected president. Paul accused George Stepahnoplous (and liberals in general) of calling Republicans liars when they are merely insisting (as Paul still is) on a debate about the accurate accounting of massive electoral fraud in the 2020 presidential election. According to Paul, the many court cases contesting elections lost by Trump’s and the RNC’s lawyers were thrown out on technicalities like lack of standing, not on the merits. Technicalities, Rand claims, prevented any kind of honest examination of possibly massive, massive, massive voter fraud in a few densely populated Democrat [sic] strongholds. He left the viewer with the strong impression that we’ll never know the truth, unless we spend the next two years vigorously investigating how Biden’s people pulled off this massive cheat.
Rand Paul, either lying or deluded, claims the merits of the election fraud cases were never reached in the literally hundreds of court cases his party and the Trump campaign brought, before and after the election. Then, without a hint of irony, two days later, calls for a vote claiming a technicality that will invalidate the upcoming impeachment trial weeks before the merits can even be presented. Merits, if we can use that word for anything Mr. Trump did during his glorious reign, which are clearly understood by about 70% of American citizens and, presumably at least that percentage of the lawmakers besieged by an angry MAGA insurgency (a “false flag” operation like Sandy Hook, where those dead “kids” and their falsely crying parents an siblings were all well-paid actors). Never mind, the radical right now has its fig leaf: “constitutionality”. Let the gaslighting games continue.
You can read the record of the 1 win 63 loss GOP post-election lawsuits, if you’d like to know if Paul is correct about the need for a commission to re-examine the many, many frauds that led to the “election” of this Commie-puppet Biden. The baseless Texas AG’s hail-Mary attempt to get the Supreme Court to hear a case about the unfairness of anti-Trump votes in other states was thrown out for lack of standing, true enough. But I’d refer Rand Paul to one of the many opinions, written by Trump-appointed judges like J. Nicholas Ranjan, dissecting with great precision the evidence-free, feverishly stated fraud claims in state after state. (More details from Judge Ranjan’s scathing pre-election dismissal of the GOP federal case in Pennsylvania here).
Evidence, of course, is not the issue. Never is for an extremist. Rand Paul and his indignant colleagues insist they are merely calling for the fair, nonpartisan debate we are all entitled to about whether there was massive organized Democrat [sic] fraud in the 2020 election. As Paul, Cruz, Hawley and others keep pointing out, many Republicans unaccountably (if you don’t consider Trump’s constant repetition of unfounded lies about massive Democrat [sis] electoral fraud for the last five years) believe the election was rigged, stolen from Trump, no matter what proof may or may not exist, and no matter what federal officials including William Barr’s DOJ (plus Barr himself) and the courts might have concluded.
The advocates of ongoing debate about widespread Democrat [sic] cheating in the election claim they are taking this principled stand to defend the Constitution, mainly because a large majority of Republicans believe their former president’s transparent, endlessly repeated lie about massive election fraud (as there was in 2016 when his fraud commission found none) and that it is essential to restore faith in the security and fairness of our elections.
Or Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Tommy Tuberville, Ron Johnson, Kevin McCarthy, Madison Fucking Cawthorn and company are liars, as the lying liberal media keeps implying they are.
Hopefully, for the rest of us, the evidence presented at the impeachment trial, and the witness statements, and the videos and other recordings of Trump as he schemed to stay in office in spite of the election results, coupled with some additional very stupid move by the Artist of the Deal (perhaps threats to ‘primary’ traitors as the votes are about to be cast, or during somebody’s sworn testimony) will allow a dozen of those 45 GOP lock-stepping zombies to vote what’s left of their consciences. The main thing is that Trump be disqualified campaigning for his next from future attempts to destroy and overthrow our government.
