Capitol Insurrection Fox News January 6

Hillary Shreds Fox For Refusing To Air Jan. 6 Hearings: ‘They Prefer Their Sedition Made Fresh On-Site’

Just hours after Fox News announced they would refuse to cover any of the televised public hearings from the House Select Committee on the January 6, 2021 Capitol insurrection, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has gone viral with a tweet she sent out suggesting that the network is actively engaged in sedition.

For those unfamiliar with exactly what the word sedition means, here’s a definition:

“Incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority.”

 

According to the New York Times, Fox’s decision to ignore the hearings clearly makes them an outlier:

“(Fox) anchors have held a dim view of the committee. Mr. Carlson called the committee ‘grotesque’ on his program on Monday night, and Mr. Hannity has called the group of five Democrats and two Republicans ‘fake’ on his 9 p.m. show.”

Sounds like classic psychological projection on the part of the Fox hosts, doesn’t it?

The move by the right-wing “news” network prompted Clinton to eviscerate them on Twitter, with a posting that quickly went viral:

Others then joined the debate and also pilloried Fox.

Keep in mind that Fox (and it’s prime time hosts) had absolutely no compunction about repeating lies about how the 2020 presidential election had been “stolen” from Donald Trump, even going to far as to suggest that voting machines had been manipulated to guarantee that Joe Biden was the victor.

Fox has backed off the election conspiracy theories since a massive $2.7 billion lawsuit was filed by Smartmatic, an election technology company which claims it was defamed by the lies told on the network. A judge ruled in March that the lawsuit will move forward, despite Fox’s asking for it be dismissed, according to Vanity Fair:

A New York judge said much of Smartmatic’s $2.7 billion defamation case against the network can proceed. There is “substantial basis” for the claim “that, at a minimum, Fox News turned a blind eye to a litany of outrageous claims about [Smartmatic], unprecedented in the history of American elections, so inherently improbable that it evinced a reckless disregard for the truth,” Judge David Cohen wrote in a 61-page ruling.

Sedition and defamation. Sounds like that’s what Fox needs to have as part of their on-screen graphics. It’d be the first time they’ve ever told the truth about anything.

Donald Trump Elections WTF?!

Kellyanne Conway Claims ‘God Had His Way’ And Made Sure Trump Defeated Hillary In 2016

Now that she has a new book to shill, former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is making the rounds on right-wing media and saying all sorts of fact-free shit that makes even less sense than the bizarre statements her former boss used to make while he was president.

Talking to Fox News host Will Cain on Sunday, Conway asserted that the reason Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election was due to divine providence:

“We did it. With a small team, we made history and I think fundamentally changed what people expect from presidential candidates and presidencies. Transparent information. Donald Trump democratized information for everyone. Instant presidential communications.

“And you see what would have happened if crooked Hillary had been president. So, God had his way. The electorate turned things around in the right way and Donald Trump produced amazing accomplishments for this country.”

Amazing accomplishments? God had his way? That deserves a fact check.

Why in the world would God choose to help the most immoral man to ever run for the presidency? Why would God bless a man who has been married three times, cheated on all three of his wives, and bragged about how he likes to grab women “by the pussy”?

Oh, and as for those accomplishments:

  • Trump left our global image in a complete shambles
  • He separated migrant children from their parents and put them into internment camps
  • His foreign policy was incomprehensible and dangerous
  • He was impeached twice, the only president in U.S. history to earn that dubious distinction
  • He completely failed to address or control the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Roughly 22 million American jobs were lost between February and April of 2020, the worst job losses since the Great Depression

God had his way? Sounds a hell of a lot more like Satan.

WATCH Hillary Clinton Fact-Check Chuck Todd When He Tries To Blame Biden For Ukraine

NBC News host Chuck Todd tried to blame President Joe Biden for not doing enough to effectively counter the actions of Russian mass murderer Vladimir Putin, but former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton quickly rebuffed him during an interview on Sunday.

Todd began with this:

“I want to pick up on — I know you were listening to the interview with Masha Gessen. I want to pick up on Masha’s last point there, which seemed to imply that no matter when we’ve confronted Putin, and I could go back really all the way to when he came into power, we’ve — it seems as if we’ve always come up a bit short. We’ve drawn a line not quite as far as others would like to draw, you — whether it was — you’ve made points of this about Syria. Perhaps we should have drawn a thicker line on what happened in Crimea. Why is that, and are you concerned we’re – we’re maybe holding back now a little too much?”

Clinton immediately countered the host:

“Well, no. Now I think we are really looking at this with our eyes wide open and seeing very clearly the threat that he poses not just to Ukraine, as we can watch every night on our news, but really to Europe, to democracy and the global stability that we thought we were building in the last 20 years. So, Chuck, I really agree with both what Secretary Blinken said, that we’ve got to continue to keep the pressure on Putin and the Russian troops. We cannot, in any way, pause our efforts to support the Ukrainians. And I agree with Masha that we have to double down. There is more that can be done to increase pressure and stress, additional sanctions, more in the way of lethal aid. And now that there has been a pushback thanks to the brave Ukrainian military offensive action, there is time to resupply the Ukrainians so that they can continue to defend their country.”

Todd then tried to misrepresent comments made by Secretary of State Antony Blinken:

“You heard Secretary Blinken essentially say, look, sanctions relief could happen. That all depends on the behavior of Russia. Can we really live in a world where Putin’s let back into the new world order?”

Once more, Clinton used facts to counter the absurd nature of what Todd had just said:

“Well, that’s not what I heard him say. What I heard him say was that, really, we are going to support the Ukrainians, the people and the government of Ukraine, as they try to figure out what for them is the best way forward, and that I think is exactly the right position for the United States, Europe and the West and other countries to take.”

Hillary Clinton is an expert on international relations and doesn’t take any shit from Vladimir Putin, which is one reason Putin worked so hard to make sure Trump won the 2016 election. It’s fun to watch her destroy Chuck Todd’s bogus talking points and make him look like a fool.

Here’s the video from NBC News:

Legal Experts Demolish Donnie’s ‘Utterly Hopeless’ Lawsuit Against Hillary Clinton

On Thursday, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and 26 others he alleges conspired to undermine his 2016 presidential campaign by “fabricating” a narrative that Russia conspired with him to win the election.

A lawsuit even though he won the election. That’s the very definition of frivolous.

The Washington Post notes:

Trump claims that he incurred expenses of more than $24 million in defending himself against the accusations. He is seeking damages of three times that amount in the lawsuit, which comes more than five years after he defeated Clinton in the November 2016 election.

“Acting in concert, the Defendants maliciously conspired to weave a false narrative that their Republican opponent, Donald Trump, was colluding with a hostile foreign sovereignty,” the lawsuit states. “The actions taken in furtherance of their scheme — falsifying evidence, deceiving law enforcement, and exploiting access to highly-sensitive data sources — are so outrageous, subversive and incendiary that even the events of Watergate pale in comparison.”

So does Trump’s lawsuit have a chance in court? Not according to legal experts such as CNN legal analyst Elie Honig:

Mark S. Zaid, founding partner of a Washington, D.C., law firm, said Trump’s attorneys should be ashamed of themselves for agreeing to be a part of such a bogus legal action:

And Philadelphia trial lawyer Max Kennerly even caught a glaring mistake in the filing:

Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe also weighed in on the Trump lawsuit:

In other words, just another attempt by Trump to muddy the waters and obscure the fact that he’s allegedly committed more crimes than can possibly be counted.

Hillary Clinton Claps Back At Putin After Russia Sanctions Her And Other Prominent Americans

Earlier today, Russia retaliated against the United States for its imposition of sanctions for their invasion of Ukraine three weeks ago.

Mediaite notes that there were some familiar names on the list of Americans the Kremlin decided to ban from Russia:

“In response to a series of unprecedented sanctions prohibiting, among other things, entry into the United States for top officials of the Russian Federation, from March 15 of this year, the Russian ‘stop list’ includes on the basis of reciprocity President J. Biden, Secretary of State A. Blinken, Secretary of Defense L. Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff M. Milley, as well as a number of department heads and prominent US figures,” the statement said.

Also on the list is former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton, who took the announcement in good humor with this Twitter posting:

Be sure and note there are no Republicans on the sanctioned list from Russia. Twitter users certainly did.
