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.

Lindsey Graham Says Lara Trump Is The ‘Future Of The Republican Party’

Admit it, when you hear talk of another Trump possibly running for public office in the future, the names that come to mind are probably Don Jr. or Ivanka, both of whom are said to relish following in their daddy’s footsteps.

But according to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the “future of the Republican Party” is Lara Trump, Eric Trump’s wife.

Yes, you read that correctly: Lara Trump.

Graham was holding forth on Fox News when all of a sudden he declared that the biggest beneficiary of Donald Trump’s second impeachment was none other than Lara Trump:

“The biggest winner of this whole impeachment trial is Lara Trump. My dear friend Richard Burr, who I like and have been friends to a long time, just made Lara Trump almost the certain nominee for the Senate seat in North Carolina to replace him if she runs, and I certainly will be behind her because she represents the future of the Republican Party.”

Burr, who isn’t running for another term in the Senate, voted to convict the former president for inciting an insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, announcing as he did:

“The evidence is compelling that President Trump is guilty of inciting an insurrection against a coequal branch of government and that the charge rises to the level of high Crimes and Misdemeanors. Therefore, I have voted to convict.”

Hours after he voted to convict Trump, the North Carolina Republican Party condemned Burr, with the GOP chairman remarking:

“North Carolina Republicans sent Senator Burr to the United States Senate to uphold the Constitution and his vote today to convict in a trial that he declared unconstitutional is shocking and disappointing.”

The Hill reports that a recent poll does indeed show that Lara Trump would be the favorite if she were to move to the state and declare her candidacy:

“The poll found that Lara Trump, who is reportedly considering a Senate run, leads former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) 24 percent to 23 percent, though this is within the poll’s 7-point margin of error.”

Of course, a poll taken this far from an actual election isn’t all that reliable, and there’s absolutely no proof that Lara Trump would be able to handle the rigors of a Senate campaign, especially once the race turns to issues and policy.

The terrifying part is that we may have to watch as yet another moronic Trump ascends to high office based on nothing but their last name. This crap needs to end, and maybe the voters of North Carolina will make sure that it does.

Sean Hannity Demands That Mitch McConnell Be Replaced As The GOP Senate Leader

If you were wondering what would become of Republicans once Donald Trump left the political scene, we got a taste on Tuesday of the new GOP reality as Sean Hannity demanded that Mitch McConnell be replaced as the party’s leader in the U.S. Senate.

What, you may ask, happened to cause such a rift to open up between Hannity and McConnell?

It all began in the afternoon when McConnell made it clear he holds Trump partially responsible for the Capitol riots that killed five people, announcing on the floor of the Senate:

“The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people, and they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government, which they did not like.”

Many political experts who heard McConnell’s remarks later said it seems clear that he would like to see Trump convicted in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial and barred from ever running for public office again.

As you might expect, McConnell’s remarks didn’t sit well with Sean Hannity, who thinks Trump is the second coming of the messiah and worships him with a fervor that is nothing short of delusional and perverse.

On his Tuesday radio show, Hannity went after McConnell and insisted that the Kentucky senator needed to be given the boot by Senate Republicans:

“Now, keep all of this in mind when we talk about Mitch McConnell. Cause I don’t remember Mitch McConnell ever being critical, but today he’s critical of Donald Trump. And to me, it’s just signaling that he’s going to go along with this latest Schiff-show in the US Senate. Republicans should not — first of all, this unconstitutional action would be to have a post-presidency impeachment trial. Mitch McConnell’s signaling here that that’s what he wants to do? Sounds like it. Republicans need new leadership. These guys have been there forever.”

Wow! That’s a declaration of political civil war. And it doesn’t bode well for McConnell or any of the current upper ranks of the Senate GOP. Apparently, Hannity won’t be happy until Ted Cruz and/or Josh Hawley are leading Senate Republicans. Then they can all be one big happy mix of seditious traitors angling to inherit the Trump mantle.

The rattlesnakes are starting to turn on each other. This should be fun to watch.

Here’s Hannity calling for McConnell’s ouster:

Ivanka Is In A ‘Bit Of A Panic’ Because Daddy’s Failure Has Destroyed Her Political Ambitions

Poor Vanky Trump. She had such big dreams of being president one day, and now her father has completely screwed up her future plans, making it more than likely that the name Trump will live in infamy much the same way those of Benedict Arnold and Jeffrey Dahmer do.

According to CNN, both Ivanka and her husband, Jared, are afraid that the image they’ll forever be associated with is one of her father’s deranged supporters storming the Capitol and executing a police officer with a fire extinguisher.

CNN White House correspondent Kate Bennett notes that Ivanka is terrified of what they will do next after the “horrific images” of the rioting that will follow them long after the Trump administration is over:

“That has Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump in a bit of a panic as they look to their future. I talked to a lot of sources today who say they’re questioning everything now, from where they’re going to live after the White House to what their careers will be.”

Careers? Is that supposed to be a damn joke? Neither Jared or Ivanka have ever worked a day in their lives. They’re professional grifters who con people out of their money and then move on to the next con.

Bennett added that Ivanka and Jared are also concerned the riots will make it “very difficult for them to tout any achievements they’ve made inside this administration.” (As if they’ve accomplished anything more than assisting in hastening the deaths of 390,000 Americans from COVID-19.)

Clearly, Ivanka has zero self-awareness, exactly like her father. She also has no shame, no guilt, no concern, no heart, no soul, and a major case of malignant narcissism. She wanted to be president, dammit!

Instead, poor little Vanky gets to be the punchline to a million jokes and a pathetic excuse of a so-called human being.

If there’s any justice in the universe, every single member of the Trump family will spend decades behind bars and shunned by polite society.

Here’s Kate Bennett’s report from CNN:

Eric Trump Claims His Father Rose From ‘Nothing’ And Instantly Gets Fact-Checked By A Fox News Host

Clearly, Eric Trump is just as arrogant and utterly stupid as his father, and he proved that when he made an appearance on the Fox News show “Outnumbered.”

Eric was discussing his father and decided to say that his daddy had come from “nothing” to become “the epitome of the American dream.” Trump’s dense son began his defense of dear old dad by declaring:

“He’s gone from practically nothing to a man who’s just–“

One of the panelists, Democratic strategist Julie Roginsky, wasn’t about to let Eric get away with that gigantic lie, and she told him:

“Nothing? He got a million bucks. Come on, Eric.”

As Donald Trump himself has admitted, he did indeed get $1 million from his father, Fred Trump, when he graduated from college and entered the world of New York real estate.


But Eric Trump would not be deterred, adding:

“He epitomized what America’s all about: Opportunity and working hard and being able to achieve your dreams and what you want to succeed, right? It’s no different than a (Mark) Zuckerberg, right, who went out with a great idea like a Facebook and developed this idea and built it and grew it and grew it and grew it. That is achieving something, right? And I think it’s very different than a person who has been a career politician.”


Actually, it’s very different from Mark Zuckerberg, who didn’t have it handed to him on a silver platter like the asshat that spawned Eric and his siblings. Also, Mark Zuckerberg hasn’t gone bankrupt numerous times or failed to pay contractors and vendors who did work for him. And for all his faults, Zuckerberg isn’t a blatant racist and sexist jerk.

Eric Trump is almost as big of a whiner as his father. And both of them love to lie about everything. Like father, like son.
