Devin Nunes: In A ‘Normal World’ There Would Be ‘Hundreds And Hundreds’ Of People Looking At Hunter Biden’s Laptop

Even though he’s no longer in Congress, former California Republican congressman Devin Nunes is still slinging conspiracy theories for the braindead morons who watch and believe Fox News as right-wing gospel.

Nunes, who is now CEO of the Trump Media and Tech Group (whatever the hell that is), was a guest on Maria Bartiromo’s “Sunday Morning Futures” show, and went on an extended (and fact-free) rant about Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, telling the host that Russia’s possible invasion of Ukraine is linked to the Biden family:

“Where are we today? Remember, the invasion of Ukraine started in 2014 under Obama and Biden. It was the Obama-Biden administration that wanted to give them blankets and then it was this Hunter Biden laptop where the information existed when they were impeaching a president over this, clearly, the information was out there that it was really the Bidens who had issues, not just with Ukraine, taking money from Ukraine, but also Russia, also China.”

Nunes added that Russian President Vladimir Putin thinks the United States is weak with Biden as president, even though we were never weaker in regard to Russian than when failed, one-term former President Donald Trump was Putin’s personal lap dog and puppet:

“And I believe what they’re going to do is, you know, probably, you know, force the hands of the Ukrainian people and basically put a choice in their hands of do they really want to fight and have bloodshed or is Putin going be able to install someone that he can control?”

That led Bartiromo to wonder out loud if Biden has “conflicts of interest” that are tying his hands on the matter of Ukraine. To that, Nunes replied:

“This is major evidence that sat on that laptop. The FBI had it for over a year and nothing was done with it. So in a normal world, unlike the one that we live in now with this dystopian media that we have and social media, you would have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of media folks, reporters, investigative reporters doing work on this.

“Sadly, you’ve only had a few. The American people deserve the right to know, what is it that the Russians, the Chinese or the Ukrainians have on politicians in this country. That information is known to the FBI, but yet, the American people still don’t have a clue.”

What does Russia have on Trump and Nunes? Can we get to the bottom of that, too, Devin? You voted against impeaching Donald for his blatant attempt to extort the Ukrainians to dig up nonexistent dirt on the Bidens, but now you want a full investigation?

Sit your sorry ass down and shut the hell up, traitor. Let’s take a look at your finances and see who owns you.

Here’s the video from Fox News:

Unearthed Video Shows McConnell Bragging: ‘My Party Does Really Good With White People And I’m Proud Of That’

Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) got caught in a controversy of his own making while discussing the issue of voting rights, telling reporters:

“The concern is misplaced because if you look at the statistics, African American voters are voting in just as high a percentage as Americans.”

As the AP reported, that set off a wave of criticism for obvious reasons:

The comment implied that Black voters are somehow not American and underscored the concerns of voting rights advocates that Republicans in state legislatures across the country are explicitly seeking to disenfranchise Black voters. The timing was also notable, coming the same day that McConnell engineered a filibuster to block voting legislation that Democrats and civil rights leaders say is vital to protecting democracy.

Mitch tried to walk back his remarks as the full fury of the online shitstorm hit him:

McConnell addressed the controversy at a news conference in Kentucky, calling the criticism an “outrageous mischaracterization of my record as a result of leaving one word out inadvertently the other day, which I just now have supplied to you, is deeply offensive.”

Now, however, Patriot Takes has unearthed a video of McConnell circa 2015 in which he proudly brags that Republicans do well with white voters:

“My party does really good with white people and I’m proud of that.”

During the same 2015 Aspen Institute forum where McConnell expressed pride in being popular with white Americans, he mused on why blacks don’t want to join the GOP, according to Mediaite:

He accused Black voters of being “locked down against Republicans,” and the only hope he expressed for making inroads was the existence of some Black Republicans.

But perhaps most strange was McConnell’s assertion that “it certainly hasn’t been helped by having the first African-American president be a Democrat. I mean, that didn’t do us much good on that front” — as if Barack Obama just fell to Earth and into the Oval Office in a stroke of misfortune for the GOP.

Republicans love to say they’re not bigoted, racist, or opposed to civil rights for minorities in the United States. But that’s just another lie they tell along with all the others.

Tucker Carlson: ‘Conservatives Have Remained Calm And Nonviolent, Thank God’

Have you ever heard something so absurd and ridiculous that you started laughing uncontrollably? If so, then you might want to prepare yourself for something Fox News host Tucker Carlson said regarding American conservatives.

As support for his assertion that the U.S. government is making the country “unstable,” HuffPost notes, Carlson referenced the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing:

He tied Timothy McVeigh’s 1995 bombing of an Oklahoma City federal building that killed 168 people to those events and presented the prospect of another attack. Though Carlson condemned potential violence, he suggested that the “full Soviet” direction of the current government could lead to it.

Here’s what Carlson said, word for word, courtesy of Media Matters:

“One borderline personality type responded to all of this by buying fertilizer and fuel oil, and in the spring of 1995, blew up 168 people at the federal building in Oklahoma City. It was awful. Imagine if something like that happened now. We would never recover. Violence against innocents is always wrong, it’s always tragic no matter who commits it. It’s not a political question. It’s a moral question. It’s an absolute. But, in a political environment like this one, where the people in charge are already salivating at the thought of going full Soviet, the U.S. as we know it would be over, right away, our core freedoms would disappear overnight, we would be enslaved. That would be a disaster on top of a disaster.”

Then he added this absurd statement:

“So far, there is no suggestion that that will happen in this country. In the face of vicious provocation, cruelty, and persecution, conservatives have remained nonviolent and thank God for that. Let’s sincerely hope they stay that way.”

Conservatives have remained nonviolent? Is that supposed to be a damn joke?! There was no ironic smile when Carlson made his ludicrous statement, so he meant this as fact even though the truth couldn’t possibly be more different.

January 6 wasn’t violent? It was a massive riot and insurrection that killed five people and left the halls of Congress befouled with the feces and urine of the insurrectionists. If that’s not violence, then what exactly is the new definition of the word? Get the editors of the Oxford English Dictionary on the phone and let’s change the meaning right now!

Propagandists use words to brainwash people. And that’s exactly what’s going on at Fox and other right-wing media outlets: They’re trying to turn their own culpability into a form of civil disobedience that minimizes the horror of what took place a year ago at the Capitol.

Conservatives have remained nonviolent? Yeah, and 2 + 2 now equals 13. Spread that lie far and wide until it becomes reality, Tucker.

Donald Trump Trump Supporters WTF?!

Washed-Up Actor Jon Voight Says Trump Was Sent By God And Is Guided By Lincoln’s Spirit

Apparently, washed-up actor Jon Voight didn’t get the memo that failed, one-term former President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election in historic fashion, because he just released a video in which he claims Trump was sent by God and is being guided by the spirit of Abraham Lincoln.

In the video, which was posted to Twitter and has since gone semi-viral (though not for the reason Voight would have hoped), the actor looks into the camera and says:

“We must give applause for our hero. Yes, he’s been the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”

Let’s see: Lincoln freed the slaves and Trump wants to keep them from voting. So that sure as hell doesn’t add up.

Voight continues:

“He’s a man of integrity, a man of devotion, a man who ran the entire country with great heart and soul. I’d like to give President Trump an honor.”

I’d like to give him a life sentence in prison. And tens of millions of Americans agree with that sentiment.

Voight concludes his video with this flourish of bullshit:

“Hope has arrived, and we shall never feel this loss again for we all know it was stolen, and we, the American people, know the truth. Donald J. Trump is a source of God’s speed, and I know Abraham Lincoln’s spirit is with him to turn America great again.”

Hope arrived the day Trump left office. The whole “source of God’s speed” is virtually undecipherable. And if Lincoln’s spirit has descended and settled on anyone currently on the face of the planet, it sure as hell isn’t Dotard Donnie.

Voight’s video tribute to ex-President Grifty was met with laughter and scorn.

GOP WTF?!

Lauren Boebert Asked Jewish Americans Visiting The US Capitol If They Were Doing ‘Reconnaissance’

A group of Jewish Americans say they were “confused” by remarks Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) made to them when they recently visited the Capitol to speak with a member of Congress.

BuzzFeed News reports:

Members of the group, which was meeting with Rep. Tom Suozzi, were wearing yarmulkes, and the person coordinating the group is Orthodox, with a traditional beard.

One witness said the group, along with other members of Congress, was waiting for an elevator. When the doors opened, Boebert stepped out of the elevator and looked the group of visitors “from head to toe,” the witness said. Boebert then asked if they were there to conduct “reconnaissance.”

“When I heard that, I actually turned to the person standing next to me and asked, ‘Did you just hear that?’” a rabbi who was with the group told BuzzFeed News.

“You know, I’m not sure to be offended or not,” the rabbi said. “I was very confused.” The rabbi added that “people are very sensitive” now, especially after what happened in Texas this past weekend, when an armed man held four people hostage at a synagogue.

When asked about her disgusting comments, Boebert — who has been accused of bringing insurrectionists into the Capitol just hours before the January 6 insurrection — said she was just repeating what Democrats had said to her:

“I saw a large group and made a joke. Sadly when Democrats see the same they demonize my family for a year straight.

“I’m too short to see anyone’s yarmulkes.”

Even if the person was the same height? Sure, Lauren.

Rep. Suozzi said Boebert’s comments were unacceptable:

“The bottom line is that everyone, especially members of Congress, have to be very, very thoughtful in the language they use. Because when you’re a member of Congress, you have an important role to play in society. You can’t be cavalier in the comments you make especially if they could be perceived as being antisemitic, or discriminatory.”

However, as we’ve seen on numerous occasions with Lauren Boebert, she isn’t the least bit thoughtful and frequently says things that prove her own bigotry and bias. She’s a cancer on Congress and needs to be removed from office.
