If you had to guess, where would you suspect the vast majority of the MAGA faithful (i.e. hardcore Trump supporters) do most of their shopping?
Did you say Walmart? I’m guessing you did, and you’re absolutely correct.
However, it now appears that some Trumpers are ready to dump Walmart and find another place to shop simply because the company isn’t carrying the shitty, overpriced pillows manufactured by Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow.
Dr. Gina Loudon (who claims to have a PhD in psychology even though she doesn’t), is a right-wing radio host who called for the Walmart boycott, announcing on Twitter that she had deleted the Walmart app and instead would be shopping at Publix:
Walmart couldn’t be reached for a comment, but here’s betting it was something like this: Gina who?! We don’t need her business anyway. Good riddance.
Other Twitter users couldn’t resist mocking Loudon, and some of their comments are pure gold. Take a look.
MAGAts boycotting Walmart? Yeah, and pigs are flying coast to coast just for the hell of it.
Near then end of today’s January 6 House Select Committee hearing, we learned that there have been efforts to exert influence on witnesses who appear before the panel.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who serves as vice chair of the committee, announced:
“The easy course is to hide from the spotlight and to deny what happened. We have evidence of one particular practice that raises significant concern.
“Our committee commonly asks witnesses connected to Mr. Trump’s administration or campaign whether they’ve been contacted by any of their former colleagues or anyone else who attempted to influence or impact their testimony.”
Cheney then read one example of a communique that had been sent to a witness:
In another example, someone called a witness and said an unnamed person “wants me to let you know that they are thinking about you. He knows you’re loyal, and you’re going to do the right thing when you go in for your deposition.”
Clearly, what Cheney was hinting at was witness tampering, which is a very serious federal crime.
And now we have another example of potential witness tampering, this time aimed directly at today’s star witness, former Trump administration official Cassidy Hutchinson.
The threat aimed at Hutchinson comes from none other than Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who sent this tweet:
“Cassidy Hutchinson lied and the@January6thCmte held a special hearing today to broadcast her lies. In ‘23, every single one of them need to be held accountable for what they are putting Pres Trump, his admin, & Republicans through on the people’s dime.
“Enough of this.”
Be sure and note the reference Greene made to a tweet from right-wing lugnut Jack Posobiec, which suggests that Trump couldn’t have possibly reached into the front seat of the limo the way Hutchinson alleged.
However, neither Posobiec or Greene paying very close attention, as another person reminded them regarding the limo:
Let’s not forget just how rich it is that Greene is accusing someone of lying, something both she and Donald Trump do more often then they exhale.
And then there’s the matter of Greene requesting a pardon from Trump as he was preparing to leave office. Who needs a pardon? A guilty person, and thanks to Cassidy Hutchinson we know that Greene and others Republicans in Congress were begging to be pardoned.
But the threat from Greene to Hutchinson and others can clearly be seen as witness tampering, and she damn sure won’t be getting any pardons before 2025 at the soonest if she’s charged and convicted.
So thanks, Margie. You just provided all the evidence needed to nail your trifling ass to the wall and send you off to prison.
Vincent James is the host of the Red Elephant podcast and was a speaker at the November 2020 “Million Maga March,” and he’s letting the world know that the Supreme Court ruling in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is just the beginning of what right-wing extremists have planned for women now that abortion has been made illegal in at least a dozen states.
Right Wing Watch came across remarks James made on his podcast this week in which he proudly proclaims:
James then added:
Make no mistake. This is exactly what the extreme right-wing has in mind for American women. They want to impose their religion on others and make it an American Taliban that is intolerant of anyone who isn’t white, Christian, and male.
These people have to be stopped. And more importantly, their supporters in the Republican Party have to be voted out of office at every level. If we don’t stop them now, the United States will become little more than a western version of Afghanistan.
According to Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, the Founding Fathers considered the concept of separation of church and state to be “junk” and wanted the church to directly control what the government does in the United States.
Clearly, Ms. Boebert has never read or understood the Constitution.
Speaking to a group of parishioners at Cornerstone Christian Center in Basalt, Colorado, Boebert let loose with a rant in which she called for churches and religious leaders to be the guiding force in the U.S.:
The “stinking letter” that Boebert referenced was written by Thomas Jefferson, and he made it clear that church and state should always remain separate, noting:
Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.
Oh, and let’s not forget James Madison, who wrote most of the Constitution and was so adamant church and state should be kept apart that he didn’t even want congressional chaplains, writing:
The Constitution of the U.S. forbids every thing like an establishment of a national religion. The law appointing Chaplains establishes a religious worship for the national representatives, to be performed by Ministers of religion, elected by a majority of them; and these are to be paid out of the national taxes.
The United States is NOT a Christian nation, and that’s exactly the way it’s supposed to be. If Lauren Boebert and her ilk want to live in a theocracy, they need to pack up their shit and move to Iran or Saudi Arabia.
You probably know that June is LGBTQ Pride Month. If you’re like most Americans, you’re fine with people celebrating their sexuality and individuality. After all, being free to be who you want to be is part of what’s great about living in the United States.
Or at least it used to be before failed, one-term former president Donald Trump made it socially acceptable among some on the right to hate anyone the least bit different who didn’t come across as white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant, and (most importantly) Republican.
The uber-conservatives of today’s United States think only they have the right to exist and everyone else needs to either pack up their shit and leave or at least sit quietly and not complain if they’re treated like shit by the “real” Americans.
Take, for example, Alison Steinberg, a host for One America News (OAN), which makes Fox look like journalism.
But that was just the beginning of the fire-breathing hatred Steinberg decided to fart out of her piehole:
“What the hell is that? Huntington Beach is the town of good ol’ fashioned, hard-working American people! People that worked all through the Covid lockdowns. Yes, that’s right! Huntington Beach never shut down through any of the Covid nonsense f*ckery. And now we’re peddling this garbage!? What the hell is this? The only flag that should be up there is the American flag. This is a disgrace to our city and it should be taken down immediately! Whoever the hell is running this town needs to be fired! Make America great again! Make Huntington Beach great again.”
Wanna know when Huntington Beach will be “great again,” Alison? The minute to vacate the freaking premises!
