GOP Congressman Says The Government And ‘Deep State’ Are Trying To ‘Wipe Out The American Cowboy’

Rep. Ryan Zinke (R-MT) is a new member of Congress who used to serve as Secretary of the Interior in the Trump administration. He was forced to resign after the department’s inspector general referred him to the Justice Department for ethical violations and lying to investigators.

According to Zinke, the “deep state” and federal government are trying to “wipe out” American cowboys.

Speaking on the House floor Tuesday, Zinke had this to say about his election to the House:

“Despite the Deep State’s attempts to repeatedly stop me, I stand before you as a duly elected member of the United States Congress and tell you that a Deep State exists and it is perhaps the strongest covert weapon the left has against the American people.”

But Zinke was just getting warmed up:

“There is no doubt the federal government Deep State coordinates with liberal activists and uses politicians and willing media to carry their water. The Deep State runs secret messaging campaigns with one goal in mind: To increase its power, to censor and persuade the American people.”

Then came the conspiracy theory about the assault on cowboys:

“Dark money groups funded by liberal billionaires and foreign investors funnel money to shell organizations and repeatedly attempt to destroy the American West. In many cases, they want to wipe out the American cowboy completely, remove public access to our lands and turn Montana into a national park.”

Yep, the feds are getting rid of the cowboys. But what Zinke failed to disclose is that someone stole was was left of his brain a long time ago.

Congress GOP QAnon WTF?!

Greene Dismisses Her Support For QAnon By Saying She ‘Got Sucked Into Things On The Internet’

Now that she’s helped get Kevin McCarthy elected as Speaker of the House and will soon be allowed back on congressional committees, Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (a.k.a. Marge the Bigot) wants us all to forget about the bizarre and disgusting things she’s said about the LGBTQ community, Jewish space lasers, and the QAnon cult that continues to predict Donald Trump will be restored to the presidency any day now.

The first step in Ms. Greene’s reputation rehabilitation took place Sunday on Fox News, where she was asked by host Howard Kurtz about her allegiance to bullshit conspiracy theories.

“But in fairness, didn’t you also say around that period that you’d been a follower of QAnon conspiracy theories and you had rethought this and you were no longer influenced by the group?” Kurtz asked.

Marge replied:

“Well, like a lot of people today, I had easily gotten sucked into some things I had seen on the internet. But that was dealt with quickly early on. I never campaigned on those things. That was not something I believed in. That’s not what I ran for Congress on. So, those are so far in the past.”

Got sucked into some things on the internet? So it’s the fault of the internet that Greene chose to believe that western governments are led and controlled by Satan-worshiping pedophiles who eat the brains and drink the blood of children? What sort of moron chooses to accept and spread such nonsense?

Here’s what else QAnon cultists believe. By extension, Greene made it clear she also believed these things, as documented by The Guardian:

  • QAnon also has its roots in much older antisemitic conspiracy theories. The idea of the all-powerful, world-ruling cabal comes straight out of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a fake document purporting to expose a Jewish plot to control the world that was used throughout the 20th century to justify antisemitism.
  • Participation in QAnon also often involves vicious online harassment campaigns against perceived enemies, which can have serious consequences for the targets.

Antisemitism. Online harassment. The dissemination of lies that harm others. That’s what QAnon and Greene support. But now we’re just supposed to forget about her past comments and pretend they never happened? We shouldn’t and we won’t.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of the most dangerous people in the U.S. Congress. And now she’s about to have even more power. That can’t be good for this country.

Attorney For Alex Jones Loses His Law License For Misconduct In Sandy Hook Trial

As if the massive multimillion dollar decision against him wasn’t bad enough, InfoWars host Alex Jones has now lost his attorney, Norm Pattis, who had his law license suspended on Thursday for misconduct during the Sandy Hook defamation trial against Jones.

According to NBC Connecticut, Pattis cannot practice law for six months, and the reason is because he released unauthorized files related to the Sandy Hook case.

The files released include the personal medical records of several Sandy Hook families during the Connecticut defamation case.

“Simply put, given his experience, there is no acceptable excuse for his misconduct,” Judge Barbara Bellis said in a court decision released Thursday.

Judge Bellis added, “We cannot expect our system of justice or our attorneys to be perfect but we can expect fundamental fairness and decency. There was no fairness or decency in the treatment of the plaintiffs’ most sensitive and personal information, and no excuse for the respondent’s misconduct.”

Pattis also gave two years of Jones’ text messages to the plaintiffs, a move that even the most inexperienced attorney is unlikely to make.

Jones remains on the hook for $985 million in damages related to comments he made regarding the Sandy Hook mass shooting which left 26 people dead, including 20 children between six and seven years old.

On his InfoWars broadcast, Jones suggested that the shooting had been staged by the government in order to justify new gun control laws. He also called the children killed at the Newtown, Connecticut elementary school “crisis actors” and said their parents were also actors who were being paid to grieve.

Pattis says he is appealing Judge Bellis’ ruling and will be seeking a stay until he can file the paperwork for the appeal.

Joe Biden QAnon WTF?!

Child At QAnon Rally Says Biden ‘Kidnaps Children And Does Terrible Things To Them’

HBO has a new documentary that looks closely at the QAnon movement in the United States, and in one section of the film, entitled This Place Rules, a young boy at a rally insists that President Joe Biden kidnaps children and Hillary Clinton “made” the COVID-19 virus.

This Place Rules was shot in the months before the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, and listening to the QAnon faithful as they spin their bizarre conspiracy theories, it quickly becomes clear that there’s a group of people in this country who live in their own alternate reality.

The boy, named Jayden, is being interviewed when he starts to spin all sorts of wild theories as his parents watch and he screams to the rallygoers:

“Biden’s a child molester and he kidnaps children and does horrible things to them just like Hillary Clinton and Obama, who made the virus. The virus is man-made. It doesn’t exist. Kids need to be put back in school.”

Jayden is just getting warmed up, and he continues to rant.

“The people who are pulling the strings is the Italian Vatican. They actually are reptilian bloodlines from another planet. They’re basically robots.”

According to Jayden, people take a submarine to “Epstein island” so they can molest children.

Where did Jayden get these “facts”? He proudly proclaims they came from “dark stream media” and the “Trump media,” which is “telling all the truth.”

Later in the film, Jayden’s father shows the interviewer a QAnon board and claims he can show people how to decipher coded messages in Anderson Cooper’s broadcasts and the Chipotle logo.

This Place Rules airs December 30 on HBO.

Mike Pompeo Says Rudy Giuliani’s Claims About Hunter Biden’s Computer Are Bullsh*t

In the surest sign yet that members of the Republican Party who have connections to failed former president Donald Trump are actively turning on each other as they angle to avoid prosecution for any number of crimes, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is making it clear that Rudy Giuliani’s conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden’s computer are complete bullshit.

Giuliani alleges that while Pompeo was still in charge at the State Department, he “buried” the hard drive from Hunter Biden’s laptop computer, telling Newsmax:

“I gave it to Hannity in early 2019, then to John Solomon, then to Mike Pompeo, who also buried it. And you should know that now that he’s running for president — and I will tell you the whole story about that at some point. I’ll write it out.”

But on Tuesday, Pompeo told Real America’s Voice he simply cannot “make sense” out of what Giuliani said.

“Not much to say. I feel bad for Rudy. You know, Sean Hannity, John Solomon, Mike Pompeo: noted leftists. Right? I feel bad. I’ll leave it there.”

Pompeo then added:

“I can’t — I don’t know. I have no idea. First, he said I gave them everything and then he kind of said, well, I gave them half. I don’t know how to respond other than to say that we never covered up anything that was important to American national security.

“I was the secretary of state. I’m not sure why Hunter Biden’s laptop would have been particularly relevant to my particular role at that time. But if he wants to write it out, I’m happy to respond to something once I can make sense of it.”

The problem for Pompeo is that if he did indeed receive a hard drive from a computer and didn’t pass it along to law enforcement or inform Hunter Biden someone was shopping such an item, he’s screwed legally.

The problem for Rudy is that he’s told so many lies he can’t keep them all straight.
