Republicans Say Cows Dead From Extreme Heat Were Killed By Biden To Destroy The US Food Supply

Over the past seven years or so — say since Donald Trump decided in 2015 that he was running for president — we’ve been bombarded with one absurd, fact-free, idiotic conspiracy theory after another, some of which came from Trump, others from Republicans and nutjob right-wingers who were once kept mostly in the shadows.

Consider just a few of the viral conspiracy theories that have circulated during that time, most of which did indeed originate with Trump:

  • Barack Obama was born in a foreign country
  • Ted Cruz’s father played a role in the assassination of John F. Kennedy
  • Windmills cause cancer
  • Climate change was created by China to destroy the United States

And yet somehow all of those pale in comparison to the one making the rounds in GOP circles involving reports that thousands of cows have died this summer as a result of extreme heat, according to The Daily Beast:

Republicans have seized on the deaths of thousands of cattle in a Kansas heat wave as the latest proof of a baseless conspiracy theory that saboteurs ranging from the mega-wealthy to the government are out to destroy the national food supply.

That hoax has been circulating on the right for months, but received new energy after thousands of cattle in Kansas died in a June heatwave in which temperatures topped 104 degrees. A viral video that showed what appeared to be hundreds of dead cattle was cited by as proof that someone—the Biden administration, liberal billionaires, or an unnamed elite cabal—was behind the deaths.

Here we go again. Grab your tinfoil hat and get ready for the mind-numbing craziness that has been unleashed thanks to some deceased bovine.

Let’s start with Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), who thankfully lost his primary election in May and will not be returning to the House of Representatives:

In a speech on the House floor, Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) said Americans have “every right to be skeptical” about the food-supply incidents, including the cattle deaths and the baby formula shortage. Cawthorn described the incidents as a “seemly unexplainable series of food industry accidents” being ignored by the media.

“Does no one care that children are starving you and your colleagues feast at Le Diplomate?” Cawthorn said, referring to the French restaurant popular with Washington politicos.

Hey, Madison, doesn’t one of your relatives need his face humped? Shouldn’t you go tend to that and leave politics to the non-loonified?

Or perhaps Tennessee House candidate Robby Starbuck is more in tune with the mass hysteria which has overtaken the GOP in recent years:

“They did not die of extreme heat,” Starbuck tweeted. “I talked to multiple ranchers since I saw this video (one from Kansas) and they all say this needs to be investigated ASAP to get to the bottom of this because there’s no way heat caused 10,000+ cattle to drop dead. This is not normal.”

Are cows supposed to be immune to extreme heat? If it gets hot enough, any animal (the human animal included) can collapse and die. That’s medical and scientific fact. But since when do conservatives believe in facts?

Personally, I’m waiting for the rumor to start that deceased humans are being converted into food and sold back to us in the form of say…beef jerky or green tea smoothies. Only when that can be proven will we all be able to stand on our front porches and cry out in anguish, “Soylent Green is people!”

Fox News GOP Joe Biden Mike Pence WTF?!

Mike Pence Laughably Claims He Has ‘Never’ Seen A POTUS Lie As Much As Joe Biden

Over the past week, there’s been what can best be called a reevaluation of former vice president Mike Pence, who has been hailed by some as the man who saved the United States from a coup attempt orchestrated by his former boss, Donald Trump.

While it’s certainly true that Pence refused to delay certification of the electoral votes on January 21, 2021, remarks the former VP made on Monday during an appearance on Fox Business make it clear that Pence remains a lying sack of excrement who cannot be trusted.

Speaking with host Larry Kudlow (who also served in the Trump administration), Pence was asked:

“Have you ever seen a president who refuses to accept blame, and I want to add to that, commits so many falsehoods? I’m being very polite here, calling it falsehoods – falsehoods, you know, on any given day. He’s out there saying stuff that just ain’t true. Have you ever seen anything like that?”

Pence replied:

“Never in my lifetime. I said today that there has never been a time in my life where a president was more disconnected from the American people than we see today.”

However, what Pence conveniently neglected to mention is that Trump told more than 30,000 lies during his four years in office, including the most dangerous one: That the 2020 election had been “stolen” from him even though he clearly lost in a landslide.

As for being “disconnected” from the American people, Donald Trump repeatedly said COVID was no big deal and would quickly vanish from the face of the planet as soon as the weather got warmer. He also suggested that disinfectant injected into the body could cure the disease.

It’s a mystery why Pence feels a need to remain so loyal to Trump, who suggested that his vice president should probably be executed for refusing to disobey the Constitution.

Whatever Pence’s motivations might be, he’s a lost cause. He’s not a hero and should go down in history as an accomplice to some of the most horrific policies ever enacted by any administration.

Lauren Boebert Publicly Prays For Joe Biden To Die – And Gets Cheered By Fake Christians

On Saturday, as she spoke to a group of so-called “Christians” in Colorado Springs, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) proudly announced that she prays for President Joe Biden each and every day. She then added that she prays he’ll drop dead.

Newsweek reports that video of Boebert’s remarks has quickly gone viral:

Speaking on Saturday at the Charis Christian Center Family Camp Meeting in Colorado, where she was a guest speaker, the Republican politician referred to bible verse Psalms 109:8 as she spoke about the 79-year-old Biden, much to the delight of the crowd. The video has so far been viewed over 480,000 times on Twitter.

Here’s what Boebert said:

“I do want you to know that I pray for our President. Psalm 109:8 says, ‘May his days be few and another take his office.'”

The roomful of fake Christians began cheering in response to what Boebert said, so she added:

“Hallelujah! Glory to God.”

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that this isn’t the first time a Republican has used Psalm 109:8 as a death wish on a president.

In 2016, then-Sen. David Perdue also called for President Barack Obama’s time in office to be brief, according to Business Insider:

“In his role as president, I think we should pray for Barack Obama. But I think we need to be very specific about how we pray. We should pray like Psalms 109:8 says. It says, ‘Let his days be few, and let another have his office,'” Perdue said at the time. 

In a perfect example of karma, Perdue lost his senate seat in the 2020 election.

Reaction to Boebert’s hateful remarks on social media was swift:

If Lauren Boebert is a Christian (she most definitely isn’t) then personally I think I’d rather wind up in hell.

Peter Doocy Is Now Suggesting Biden May Ban The Sale Of Handguns In The US

Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy suggested Monday during the daily press briefing that President Joe Biden might try to ban the sale of handguns in the United States.

Doocy referenced remarks made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about possibly banning the importation and sale of guns into his country, which was reported by the Washington Post:

Canada on Monday introduced new gun-control legislation that, if passed, would implement a “national freeze” on buying, importing, transferring and selling handguns, effectively capping the number of such weapons already in the country.

The bill, which officials here cast as “the most significant action on gun violence in a generation,” also includes “red flag” laws that would allow judges to temporarily remove firearms from people deemed to be a danger to themselves or others and stiffer penalties for gun smuggling and trafficking.

“We recognize that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible and follow all necessary laws,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters in Ottawa. “We are, however, facing a level of gun violence in our communities that is unacceptable.”

That led Doocy to ask White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre:

“Canada is making it impossible to buy, sell, transport or import handguns. Would President Biden ever consider a similar restriction on handguns here?”

Jean-Pierre replied:

“We’ll leave it up to other countries to set their policy on gun ownership. The president has made his position clear. The United States needs to act as I just laid out. He supports a ban on the sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines and expanded background checks to keep guns out of the dangerous hands.”

She then added:

“He does not support a ban on the sale of all handguns.”

Doocy knows damn well that President Biden isn’t planning to ban guns in the United States, and there’s no way he could even if he wanted to. Such a move would never be approved by the courts, especially the U.S. Supreme Court, which currently has six conservatives among its nine members.

Fox and Doocy are trying to frighten their viewers for ratings. They’ve been doing it ever since Fox debuted back in 1996.

WATCH: Greg Abbott Greeted By Boos And Jeers As He Arrives To Meet With President Biden

When he went to meet with President Joe Biden, who was in Texas to meet with the relatives of those who lost loved ones in the Uvalde school shooting on Sunday, it quickly became clear that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) is not exactly very popular in his home state at the moment.

Abbott, who has refused to discuss new gun laws in the Lone Star State despite the horrific shooting at Robb Elementary school that left 19 children and two of their teachers dead, was roundly booed and jeered by crowds who had gathered to see President Biden’s arrival.

Here’s the videos:

Abbott is facing an uncertain bid for reelection in November, when he will face Democratic nominee Beto O’Rourke. Texas hasn’t had a Democratic governor since Ann Richards won in 1991.
