Let's just start out with a source that doesn't make it into Wingnut Wrapup that much:
Mark Theissen, Washington Post: "Democrats are crippling America’s response to Russian interference"
Yes, it's Democrats, DEMOCRATS! who are crippling America's response to Russian interference! Because, you see, according to Mark Theissen, a "fellow" at the right wing lie factory The American Enterprise Institute, and therefore fully qualified to be published at one of the top newspapers in the country:
"What it does not show is any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Quite the opposite, the indictment shows evidence of a lack of collusion."
No rational human being on earth could possibly believe that at this point, but Mark and all the other paid Conservative liars are going to bleat the claim out over and over again, in a (likely successful) effort to blot out the truth, as they have done hundreds of times before.
Well, even Mark has to admit that:
"The Russians did develop a preference for Trump, but their effort was much bigger than Trump"
Yeah, you son of a bitch. Their effort was to undermine our country. Trump was just their willing tool.
What the hell does the Washington Post think they are doing publishing things like this? Oh well, at least they are not paying David Brooks to lie in their faces every week for fifteen years, I guess. That makes them marginally better than the New York Times.
And a note here: I am going to just skip the Conservative outrage that a movie which opened last week could succeed at the box office despite being about BLACK PEOPLE! The whole thing is just too depressing for me, but if you would like to see more on the subject, I suggest you read an article by Roy Edroso, who covers the issue fully, as he is wont to do.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled garbage:
Bernard Goldberg, Town Hall: "while everyone agrees mentally ill people shouldn't be allowed to buy guns, how do we determine that someone is mentally ill until he does something that really proves it?"
Everyone agrees mentally ill people shouldn't be allowed to buy guns? How about one Donald Trump, who as the first major act of his "presidency," did away with the Federal regulations preventing mentally ill people from buying guns? How about the Republican party, which virtually unanimously supported him when he did that? How about the millions of members of the NRA, which campaigned long and loudly to get him to do that? Everyone agrees, at least for a few days, until enough people forget about the latest school shooting, and the gun dealers and their paid Republican stooges can get back to their real business.
Thomas J. Farnan, Town Hall: "Have You No Sense of Decency, Robert Mueller, At Long Last?"
Ha. You've got to laugh, I guess about Republicans projecting their worst behavior ever onto whoever gets in the way of their criminality.
"The present Russian investigation hit its “have you no sense of decency” moment last week when Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russians for defrauding America. There is no evidence that they influenced anything."
No evidence that any Republican will ever accept, that is.
"A British subject, Christopher Steele, coordinated with seedy Russians to produce a salacious and unverified dossier"
A "British subject," who just happened to be the long time head of the Russia desk at MI6. He spent his whole career chasing down and exposing Russian spies, and now all of a sudden, he "coordinated" with the Russians. No lie is too big when you are a Republican.
Chris Reeves, Town Hall: "Prominent #MeToo Feminist Legislator Accused of Serial Alcohol-Fueled Sexual Misconduct"
She got drunk and fucked a lot. That certainly puts an end to the entire feminist movement for all time, I guess.
Timothy Meads, Town Hall: "400 Pound Geniuses, Russia's Wildest Dreams, and More Commentary from President Trump"
Commentary? A screaming tantrum is not a commentary.
Bonchie, Red State: "Yes, Russia Tried To Interfere In The Election…No, It’s Not Like Pearl Harbor"
Hey, a little sabotage of our electoral system, aided by its chief beneficiary, who now sits in the White House..what's the big deal? Let's all calm down here and just shut up. Of course it was perfectly okay for Republicans to accuse Obama of every kind of crime and perversion on earth without a shred of evidence, but this is different...this is Democrats accusing Republicans, something which is clearly out of bounds, no matter how much evidence they have.
"there is zero comparison, either via seriousness or scale, to the attacks on Pearl Harbor or 9/11."
You know what, Bonchie? Yeah, a bunch of terrorists killed a couple thousand people on 9/11, but beyond encouraging the right in this country to go on a two decades long rage attack, they really didn't accomplish much more than that. Trump, with the enabling of the Republican Congress is rapidly turning this country into a fascist dictatorship. That is a hundred times worse than what happened on 9/11. And as for Pearl Harbor, I just don't remember anyone comparing this to Pearl Harbor, except you, Bonchie.
Brandon Morse, Red State: "Mike Rowe Presents A Level Headed Suggestion About The Florida Shooting"
The suggestion? Do nothing. I don't really think that's the first time I have heard that suggestion.
John Hawkins, PJ Media: "What Liberals Don’t Understand: A Serious Attempt at Gun Confiscation Could Lead to Civil War"
A civil war, yeah! Just what they've been craving for a century and a half, since the last one worked out so well for them. I can hardly wait either- it'll be these guys
versus these guys
That's going to make for some good TV.
A little more from John:
"Liberals love to fantasize about confiscating every gun in America."
They do? I never heard that.
"Or, alternately, D.C. could hire goon squads in local communities to go house to house to confiscate weapons."
Goon squads, aka police, a group that wingnuts just love when they are shooting unarmed black people, or doing something else that right wingers approve of.
Debra Heine, PJ Media: "Liberals Have Meltdown Over CPAC Speaker"
I just included this to remind you how important it is to right wingers to imagine that liberals are having "meltdowns" over everything the right does. Angering liberals is their number one purpose in life, because they are not adults, they are really little children throwing tantrums. In the end, they know they are not going to get what they want, but it's some satisfaction to them to make everyone else as miserable as possible in the process.
And just to make things clear, the speaker in question is Marine Le Pen, so we can translate "French nationalist" as "Nazi," which she is. Great move, deciding to be lectured by a Nazi. No sense hiding what you are at any more, Conservatives.
Debra Heine, PJ Media: "Judge Orders Mueller to Provide Flynn’s Attorneys With 'Any Exculpatory Evidence'"
The obvious duty of any prosecutor, here presented as some sort of major blow to Mueller.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "Social Media Censorship Panel at CPAC, with — Pamela Geller, James O’Keefe, Jim Hoft, James Damore, Harmeet Dillon, Dan Gainor"
The most nauseating panel in human history.
Lucian Wintrip, Gateway Pundit: "Raj Shah Blasts Dems: Unlike Obama Administration POTUS Trump Actually Is Holding The Russians Accountable"
This is the sort of "reporting" you can expect when people like Gateway Pundit are given White House press credentials- i.e. lying both about Obama and Trump.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "JILL STEIN: Media And Democrats Were The Real Meddlers In 2016"
The mighty progressive, Jill Stein. Jill, I am sure you are thrilled to be making common cause with Jim Hoft, Jill.
Kevin Fobbs, Renew America: "Learn what America means to young Ohio patriot Cannon Wagner"
Uh huh. What kind of political views can you expect from someone whose parents named them "Cannon?" And by the way, Cannon is supposedly eight years old. I'm not going to link to this piece of garbage, but here's a small sample:
"So, I think that even though I'm just a kid I have a responsibility to my country and my people. Daddy tells me that by simply keeping my grades up and helping around the house and being a good friend and neighbor helps my country. So, I pray to God thanking him for putting me in America with my family and friends and even my little brother Troy. Well I think that's all I got to say."
Well, trust me on this: the article has as much chance of being written by an eight year old as it does of being written by a German Shepherd.
Amanda Batchelor, Renew America: "'FBI director needs to resign,' Gov. Rick Scott says after FBI admits to failing to investigate tip"
And what does Gov. Rick Scott need to do after spending years fighting every kind of gun restriction or legislation on the face of the earth? Oh, just take more money from the NRA and hold his breath until everyone forgets about the latest shooting? I suppose I should have guessed that would be the answer.
Daniel John Sobieski, American Thinker: "Reading, Writing, and Return Fire...Whether it be terrorists or armed loons, we all live in a war zone these days"
Do we? Do all of us risk imminent death every time we go out of our doors? Or do we live our lives pretty much the same way people did fifty or a hundred years ago, going about our daily business without any measurable risk of being killed by a right wing fanatic or deranged lunatic? We need to think about whose interest is served by keeping half the population in a state of near panic, which only serves to make it likely that our entire country will descend into a war zone.
Thomas Lifson, American Thinker: "Dems fear 'slow-motion train wreck' in midterms...The smarter Dems have caught on to how screwed they are."
An interesting read from Mr. Lifson, who, curiously, fails to name one single Democrat who has said anything like this. Well, just take his word for it. Because would Republicans lie to you?
Thomas Lifson, American Thinker: "Did the Russians really spend 'millions' trying to swing the election? Where's the evidence?"
Nowhere that will induce anyone like Lifson to ever admit that it's there, that's for sure. After all, if Republicans just refuse to look at the evidence, it doesn't exist.
Kevin Daley, Daily Caller: "A State Court Gave Dems A Big Boost For The Midterms. Now Trump Wants SCOTUS Involved."
The big boost being, of course, a demand for Congressional districts that were not gerrymandered by Pennsylvania's Republican controlled legislature to favor Republicans, as is now the case. Fairness favors the Democrats, so out with fairness.
And let's just head into Peak Lying Mode, and get it over with:
John White, Your News Wire: "Citizen journalist Jenny Moonstone has interviewed Parkland survivors who reveal that the Secret Service held drills at the the school prior to the shooting that left 17 dead. According to Moonstone, multiple witnesses describe a 2nd shooter, FBI raids in town on Thursday night, and Secret Service drills last month at the school – all of which challenge the official narrative. Might this hold answers as to why the FBI failed to do anything about Nikolas Cruz?"
"Jenny Moonstone happens to be an alternative you-tuber who found herself on the inside of the story when massacre came to her town of Parkland, Florida."
Okay then. I thought I would just see who this Jenny Moonstone was, and the first thing I came up with was an hour long You Tube video raving about Pizzagate. I'm not sure if she ever moved on to any other topics, because after a couple of minutes I had as much as I could take. By the time I gave up, Jenny was claiming that the Clintons had murdered a couple of rock musicians (I think, because it's all so incoherent.) This is right wing journalism at its finest.
And a few more headlines from Your News Wire:
"Disastrous’ Flu Shot Is Causing Deadly Flu Outbreak""Texas Church Shooter Was Antifa Member Who Vowed To Start Civil War""I Was In The Illuminati I’m Going To Tell You Everything, Shocking Expose""Young Boy Recounts Past Life As 1930’s Hollywood Star"
And this shocking story:
"Swiss Scientists Say Atlantis Was On Mars & Traded With Ancient Egypt"
There was a Trump casino there too. Okay then, we'll just go out with a quote from Jenny:
"Don't stand in the way of the people who have the drive, the time and the initiative to do the research...If you deny Pizzagate, you are dead to me."
Dead, I tell you, dead.
Al Weisman, Freedom Daily: "POLITICSBREAKING!! Trump Just Received HIGHEST Honor! He Just Beat Out President Ronald Reagan!"
Amazing! And what is that honor, you are surely asking:
"According to the highly prestigious conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation, President Donald Trump has done a remarkable job during the first year of his presidency..."
Remarkable. That's for sure.
"His accomplishments are surprisingly a lot better than the American Conservative icon that was President Ronald Reagan! The heritage foundation is rightly so calling President Donald Trump the most conservative president they have ever rated."
As if that was ever in doubt. And Freedom Daily isn't done today!
Liberty Belle, Freedom Daily: "BREAKING!! Obama in Full PANIC After They Found EVERYTHING He Tried To Hide!"
Everything! They found EVERYTHING!!!!!! It's all over now!
Well, at least Wingnut Wrapup is over. For now. Count your blessings.
