Bartiromo Claims Delta Variant Is A Plot For Democrats To Steal The 2022 Election

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo is quickly becoming just as deeply unhinged and absurd than her associates (Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham) over at Fox News, spouting off with ridiculous conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact and only serve to destroy what tiny shred of credibility she might have once had.

On Sunday, during her Fox show “Sunday Morning Futures,” Bartiromo was discussing the rise in coronavirus cases across the country with Sen. John Barasso (R-WY) and suggested the Delta variant of COVID that is putting thousands of Americans in the hospital is actually a plot to steal the 2022 midterm election:

“It’s all quite convenient with a year to go before the midterm elections. It doesn’t appear the Democrats can win on policy so what are we going to do? Have a lockdown in the summer of 2022 so that we ensure mail-in ballots are flowing from empty parking lots and dead people?”

Seriously undercutting that bogus assertion, however, is the fact that the agency tasked with assuring safe and fair elections said while Donald Trump was still president that the 2020 election — which was largely conducted via mail-in ballot — was the most secure in history, as CBS News reported last November:

“Federal election infrastructure officials said in a joint statement on Thursday that the 2020 election was the “most secure in American history.” Meanwhile, President-elect Biden picked up 11 more Electoral College votes as CBS News projected he had won Arizona, giving him a 73 vote margin over President Trump and putting him well over the 270 electoral vote threshold with a total of 290 projected votes.”

As you’d expect, Barasso was eager to agree with Bartiromo, remarking:

“You’re right on line on that, Maria, which is why I see what the Democrats are trying to do now. They have a two-pronged approach. The one is the very liberal policies that are coming forward on amnesty and on the civilian climate core. The things that are expensive, that we can’t afford, that are bad for the country, bad policy.

“And then there’s this second track, which is to undermine election and integrity of elections in this country, making it easier for Democrats to cheat. That’s their number one priority.”

Did Barasso offer any proof to support what he said? Of course not! Republicans don’t believe in facts. Instead, they spread bullshit like the QAnon fakery because they know they don’t have any policy positions of their own.

Sounds like Republicans are already worried they’re going to lose in 2022,  but it has nothing to do with cheating by Democrats. Instead, they can feel the country turning against them and what they stand for.

Fox News Hypocritically Whines That ‘Ambushing’ Tucker Carlson In Montana Was ‘Totally Inexcusable’

According to Fox News, no one should ever approach one of their employees and exercise his or her First Amendment right to speak their mind the way a man in Montana did over the weekend when he ran across Fox host Tucker Carlson in a fly fishing shop.

The interaction, which featured Carlson and a man identified as Dan Bailey, went viral online, with Bailey telling Carlson:

“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.”

Fox News gave a statement to Mediaite regarding the video in which they wrote:

“Ambushing Tucker Carlson while he is in a store with his family is totally inexcusable — no public figure should be accosted regardless of their political persuasion or beliefs simply due to the intolerance of another point of view.”

The problem with that statement is that it could not possibly be more hypocritical, as Amanda Terkel of HuffPost notes. Terkel was ambushed by Jesse Watters of Fox News back in 2009 and recalled that event:

“Fox News is outraged when their big-name hosts are ambushed, but it is totally fine with its big-name hosts doing the ambushing. Ambushes were a central part of the show of Bill O’Reilly, who was Fox’s most prominent host for years. (He left in 2017, under the disgrace of a series of sexual harassment allegations.)

“Fox News also continued to promote Jesse Watters, O’Reilly’s henchman who went out and did many of the ambushes. In 2009, O’Reilly sent Watters out to harass me while I was on vacation for the weekend in Virginia.”

Terkel complained to Fox when Watters harassed her. What was their reaction? Bupkis. They gave her silence in return for her complaint:

“There was no outrage that I was accosted while going about my personal life, simply because O’Reilly didn’t like that I pointed out that he had made gross comments about a woman who was raped.”

Apparently, Fox only gives a damn when one of their propagandists is approached and told how the public feels. That’s one hell of a double standard, but it’s to be expected from conservatives, who are the biggest bunch of whiny-assed little daffodils in the world. They can dish it out, but when it comes back in their direction, they get their feelings hurt and complain.

Attention Fox News and Tucker Carlson: As Harry Truman once said, If you can’t stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen!

Donald Trump Jr. Fox News Social Media

Don Jr. Attempts To Defend Tucker Carlson But Only Succeeds In Humiliating Himself

On Sunday, Donald Trump Jr. (a.k.a Traitor Tot) tried to defend his buddy Tucker Carlson who was castigated by a man in a viral video that showed the Fox host being taken to task for his lies about vaccines for COVID-19, but all Junior accomplished was proving what a gutless suck up he is.

In the video of Carlson, a man identified as Dan Bailey approaches the Fox host in a Montana shop and tells him:

“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.”

That led Don Jr. to post this ridiculous note on Twitter regarding the video:

Pregnant male emoji?! WTF does that even mean? Is Junior trying to say that Bailey is overweight? Has he taken a good look at his fat slob of a father lately? The failed, one-term president looks like he swallowed a pumpkin and wasn’t able to shit it out. He’s clearly tilting the scales at over 300 lbs.

All Junior accomplished was getting his own tweet squashed flat by others on social media:

Tucker Carlson Gets Called Out As The ‘Worst Human’ While On Vacation In Montana

Fox New host Tucker Carlson is in Montana for a vacation, and he got an earful of what people really think about him when a man approached him and let loose with invectives.

The man in the video (which is quickly going viral) is named Dan Bailey, and he told Carlson:

“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.”

Bailey then posted the video to Instagram, along with this message, which goes even further in spelling out how he feels about Carlson, who in recent weeks has been telling viewers not to get the COVID-19 vaccine:

“It’s not everyday you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it! What an asshole!

“This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American.”

Carlson has also said that anyone who sees a child with a protective mask on should call child protective services and report the parents, exhorting viewers:

“Masks have always been incompatible with a free society. Masks are for the guilty. They’re signifiers of shame and submission.

“Next time you see someone in a mask on the sidewalk or on the bike path, do not hesitate, ask politely but firmly, would you please take off your mask? Science shows there is no reason for you to be wearing it. Your mask is making me uncomfortable. We should do that, and we should keep doing it until wearing a mask outside is roughly as socially acceptable as lighting a Marlboro in an elevator. It’s repulsive.”

This country is facing a pandemic of the unvaccinated at the moment, with coronavirus cases rising most rapidly in red states such as Arkansas, Florida, and Missouri. The Delta variant of the disease is also much stronger and more deadly than previous iterations of COVID.

But despite that, Tucker Carlson and others at Fox are spreading lies and conspiracy theories about the vaccine. They have blood on their hands, and yet they don’t seem to give a damn about the lives they’ve destroyed.

Dan Bailey is absolutely right: Tucker Carlson is the worst person in the world, and he deserves to hear that each and every day of his life.

Fox News Host Says Russia Now Has A Jet Than Can Fly At ‘Twice The Speed Of Light’

During Wednesday morning’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” host Jillian Mele reported that Russia now has a fighter jet that can fly at “nearly twice the speed of light.”

According to Mele:

“The jet features stealth characteristics and the ability to cruise at supersonic speeds. The new aircraft is smaller than other Russian fighter jets but can fly at a speed of almost twice the speed of light.

“The new design can also be converted into an unpiloted version.”

Co-host Steve Doocy then chimed in:

“Unpiloted. so you would control it by a computer or a person running it just like a video game.”

Mele:

“That boggles my mind.”

It boggles her mind? That would require that she actually have a mind instead of just being a paid news reader who reiterates whatever’s on the teleprompter.

As Albert Einstein explained with his theory of relativity, nothing can travel at a speed that’s faster than the speed of light.

Space.com explains Einstein’s thinking on the subject of traveling faster than light:

“Even using the most precise measurements possible, the speed of light remains the same for an observer standing still on the face of the Earth as it does for one traveling in a supersonic jet above its surface. Similarly, even though Earth is orbiting the sun, which is itself moving around the Milky Way, which is a galaxy traveling through space, the measured speed of light coming from our sun would be the same whether one stood inside or outside of the galaxy to calculate it. Einstein calculated that the speed of light doesn’t vary with time or place.”

Even worse for Mele is that Fox itself totally disproves what she said, with their website reporting:

“The prospective warplane, marketed under the project name Checkmate, has one engine and is designed to be smaller and cheaper than Russia’s latest Su-57 two-engine stealth fighter, also built by Sukhoi. It can fly at a speed of 1.8-2 times the speed of sound, has a range of 3,000 kilometers (1,864 miles) and a payload of 7,400 kilograms (16,300 pounds), the jet’s makers said.”

Later today, perhaps Jillian Mele will tell us that gravity isn’t real and Sir Isaac Newton was wrong.
