Bartiromo And Miller Whine: Making It Easier To Vote Will Put Democrats In Charge ‘Forever’

Republicans are terrified of the American electorate because they know that if people go to the polls in record numbers the way they did in the 2020 election, the GOP loses.

The majority of Americans either lean Democratic or progressive, and that means conservatives can see that the GOP’s days as a viable political party are numbered.

Proof of that was given by Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo and former Trump administration aide Stephen Miller, both of whom bemoaned the fact that Democrats control the House, Senate, and White House.

The only solution, according to Miller is that Republicans need to pass legislation that protects Christians and conservatives on social media, which led Bartiromo to remark:

“Yeah, will Republicans have the chance? That’s the whole point of H.R. 1, Nancy Pelosi wanting to put this bill through so that Democrats are in charge forever or certainly decades. Your thoughts on election integrity and that Democrat [sic] H.R. 1 bill.”

Miller then chimed in:

“It’s a real sign of the threat to the health of our democracy. When democracy faces risk, when democracy is imperiled, what you see happening instead is the party in power tries to change the rules of the game structurally to stay in power.”

Hmm…is that anything like Donald Trump and his Republican co-conspirators trying to stay in power by overturning the results of an election and having their supporters storm the U.S. Capitol and kill members of the Capitol Police Force?

Miller then added:

“H.R. 1 is saying, now that we’re in power, let’s fundamentally change the rules of how elections are conducted to stay in power.”

Actually, H.R. 1 says that no state should be allowed to make it harder for registered voters to cast a ballot. Or to randomly close polling locations. Or, for that matter, to enact obstacles to voting for the purpose of disenfranchising people of color or the economically disadvantaged.

Bartiromo gasped:

“Unbelievable!”

But Miller was far from finished lying:

“That’s a very scary thing. And so if you care about democracy, you should all say with one voice, no, it is the right of every state in this union to set their own election rules as desired by their own citizens to protect the security and integrity of their own elections. That’s fundamental!”

Every state should be allowed to set their own for national elections such as the presidential one we hold every four years. That’s not fundamental; that’s bullshit!

Republicans are the ones who want to stack the deck so they can continue to cheat at elections. It’s the only way they can win. They’re devoid of ideas or cogent policies, so they whine and try to bar people from voting. That’s un-American and antithetical to democracy.

Maria Bartiromo and Stephen Miller aren’t interested in democratic ideals. They’re far too busy trying to impose their brand of fascism on everyone.

Fox Host Bill Hemmer Claims Democrats Want To ‘Cancel’ Bible Characters

While people are freezing to death across the state of Texas, the gang at Fox News is worried about statues being taken down in Chicago and trying to suggest that Bible characters are about to be removed by the “cancel culture” which they claim is led by Democrats.

Mediaite reports that the discussion began as three Fox hosts noted that Chicago was reviewing dozens of statues in the city to “grapple with the unacknowledged — or often forgotten history” of the city and “develop a framework for marking public space that elevates new ways to memorialize Chicago’s history more equitably and accurately.”

That led host Carley Shimkus to remark:

“Forty-one Chicago monuments are under review. Five are of Abraham Lincoln in Illinois — the land of Lincoln. His statue might be removed from the city.”

That’s total bullshit. No one has suggested taking down statues of Lincoln, but Fox needs to try and outrage their viewers so they’ll stay tuned.

Shimkus then referred to a recent appearance on the network by Cardinal Timothy Dolan, who said that for many Catholics and Jews, “memory and tradition are very, very important — it is the vehicle of God’s revelation.”

That led her to go on an extended rant:

“You have to wonder, are we in a transition period in our country right now where our grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren might not think of these people the way we do? They might not be taught in the same way we know them now. I say more statues, not less, not fewer. More opinions, more ideas, not less.

“Way, way back in the day when I was first working in local news, I was at a CBS affiliate in Springfield, Illinois, and Lincoln was everything. A part of every aspect of the city and there was even a sandwich named after Abraham Lincoln. I don’t think they’ll take the sandwich name away.”

Oh please! A sandwich is keeping the memory of Abe Lincoln alive? If that’s the case, then we’re doing a poor job of teaching history to the next generation.

But it was what co-host Bill Hemmer said that perfectly explains why Fox’s ratings are in the crapper these days:

“If they start canceling American presidents, they’ll come after Bible characters next. Mark my words, right?”

Really?! That’s just ridiculous, as plenty of people on Twitter noted:

Fox News Fox News Lies Joe Biden Media in America Racism WTF?!

Fox News Reporter Gets Humiliated When He Claims Biden Is Just As Racist As Trump

At Monday’s daily White House press briefing, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy thought he’d ask a question while also attempting to make an absurd comparison between President Joe Biden and former president Donald Trump.

Specifically, Doocy asked about new travel restrictions on the United Kingdom (along with large parts of Europe) and South Africa to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 variants that have been discovered in those areas:

“President Trump was imposing travel restrictions in March specifically on China. Then-candidate Biden called it ‘xenophobic’ and ‘fear-mongering.’ So, now-President Biden is putting travel restrictions on people coming in from other countries. What words would you use to describe this?”

Press Secretary Jen Psaki replied:

“Well, I don’t think that’s quite a fair articulation. The President has been clear that he felt the Muslim ban was xenophobic; he overturned the Muslim ban. He also though has supported, and he himself – even before we did, I should say even before he was inaugurated – steps, travel restrictions in order to keep the American people safe, to ensure that we are getting the pandemic under control, that’s been part of his policy, but he was critical of the former president for having a policy that was not more comprehensive than travel restrictions, and he conveyed at the time and, more recently, the importance of having a multifaceted approach, mask wearing, vaccine distribution, funding in order to get 100 million shots in the arms of Americans in the first 100 days, not just travel restrictions.”

Not only that, but Trump’s China travel ban didn’t do a bit of good. The novel coronavirus entered the U.S. from Europe, not China, and yet Trump steadfastly refused to ban travel from Europe.

Doocy was ripped to shreds on Twitter for his lame attempt to equate Biden with Trump:

Nice try, Doocy, but all you did was wind up with an embarrassing shit stain on your face.

Fox News Walks Back Their Election Fraud Lies After Being Threatened With Enormous Lawsuit

Even since November 3, some of the top Fox News hosts have been amplifying baseless claims about how the 2020 presidential election had been rife with fraud. Voting machines, they told viewers, switched millions of ballots from Donald Trump to Joe Biden. Trump had been cheated out of a second term in office.

Of course, neither Fox or the guests they had on their air to spread such bullshit provided any evidence of their accusations because they have none. Instead of facts, they listen other conspiracy theorists and repeat what they’ve heard from other right-wing media toilets such as Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN).

And then something very odd happened: Those same Fox hosts (Lou Dobbs, Jeanine Pirro, etc.) began retracting their lies to avoid a massive lawsuit from a company named Smartmatic, according to the Washington Post:

“Dobbs, an opinion host and conservative ally of President Trump who has consistently raged over the past month that the president was robbed of a second term by a rigged election, introduced a segment that calmly debunked several accusations of fraud that Rudolph W. Giuliani and other Trump supporters have lobbed against the election technology company Smartmatic.

“’There are lots of opinions about the integrity of the election, the irregularities of mail-in voting, of election voting machines and voting software,’ Dobbs told his viewers before introducing Edward Perez, an expert with the nonprofit Open Source Election Technology Institute, to give ‘his assessment of Smartmatic and recent claims about the company.'”

Yes, the biggest and most fearsome conservative “news” network in the United States blinked. And all Smartmatic had to do was write a letter to Fox. But it was one hell of a letter:

“Specifically, the company charged: ‘Fox News has engaged in a concerted disinformation campaign against Smartmatic. Fox News told its millions of viewers and readers that Smartmatic was founded by [the late Venezuelan President] Hugo Chávez, that its software was designed to fix elections, and that Smartmatic conspired with others to defraud the American people and fix the 2020 U.S. election by changing, inflating, and deleting votes.'”

In other words, Fox lied, and they had to eat crow on their own air, admitting that they had been responsible for spreading falsehoods.

A day later, the same segment ran on Jeanine Pirro’s sorry excuse of a weekly show. It ran again on Sunday during “Sunday Morning Futures,” which is hosted by Maria Bartiromo, who has also been giving airtime to the election theft nonsense.

All of this is historic, and it proves that Fox knew damn well they were airing lies and propaganda just to get ratings. But the letter from Smartmatic changed all that, and now the network has been chastened.

What does all this mean for the future? It’s hard to say, but at least on this occasion, a network was met with facts and folded. We can certainly hope that continues.

Absurd Fox News Op-Ed Portrays Melania As A Selfless Victim Who ‘Speaks Five Languages’

The powers-that-be at Fox News have read the tea leaves (i.e. the election results) and come to the conclusion that Donald Trump will indeed be a failed one-term (and impeached) president whose main claim to fame as POTUS is that he gave the richest Americans a massive tax cut and sat by idly as over 300,000 of us died from a pandemic he refused to control.

So, now that Trump is heading for the exit, it’s time for Trump TV to try and write their version of “history” by extolling the many virtues of the departing First Lady, Melania Trump, who came to the job after being a nude model, a gold digger, and the mother of Donald’s last child.

In a disgustingly absurd op-ed posted on the Fox News website, former GOP Wisconsin Congressman Jason Chaffetz extols Melania’s virtues, writing:

“Mrs. Trump deserves to be recognized as an exceptional first lady. With little fanfare and tremendous pushback from some of the most vocal segments of society, she managed to launch a successful anti-bullying campaign, conduct important outreach abroad, protect her teenage son from relentless bullying, and serve as an inspiration to those trying to integrate into American culture. All without making any major missteps.”

Really, Jason? What has the woman actually done other than whine about having to decorate the White House for Christmas and mock immigrant children placed in internment camps by wearing a jacket that read, “I really don’t care, do you?”

But Chaffetz was only getting warmed up, puckering his lips and placing them squarely against Melania’s rump as he swooned:

“In light of the coronavirus pandemic, the rise of virtual schooling, and the outbreaks of violence in some American cities over the last year, these issues needed and deserved the attention brought by the first lady. This effort, in combination with good public policy from the Trump administration, coincided with a drop in drug overdose deaths and in increase in life expectancy.”

Chaffetz also managed to get in the ubiquitous line all conservatives use when discussing Melania: She speaks five languages. Really? Then how come no one has ever heard her speak them? And why is her English still so shitty considering how long she’s been an American citizen? A freaking African parrot with a multilingual owner also speaks more than one language, but that does that doesn’t make it a nuclear physicist.

To put it another way, Jason and his apologists in the Republican guild of liars need to stick a sock in it and take a damn chair. Melanoma will be forgotten in a few months. She’s a pathetic excuse of a human being and is married to a monster. Be best? No. BE QUIET!
