I have to admit I have been having trouble with Wingnut Wrapup lately. It's not that right wingers are any less loony as a result of their humiliating attempt to overthrow the government; oh no, if anything they are even more crazy than before. It's just that things are happening so fast that the items I find seem like quaint relics of a more peaceable time before I can even write a post. Think what has now occurred has in any way caused them to rethink their self-subjugation to a malignant, sociopathic would-be dictator? Think again, sucker. And here is the proof.
And, just to get this out of the way, we knew this was coming:
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "BREAKING: GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against Joe Biden on January 21 Over Abuse of Power"
Because they are going to do this for every Democratic President for the next three hundred years. Democrats can know for certain that any power they use will be promptly misused by Republicans as often as they can get away with it. This will be the first bill introduced by this Q-Anon loving, newly elected Representative. Boy, is she off to a good start.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "Rabbi Aryeh Spero: “They Not Only Want to Cancel Trump, They Don’t Want Us to Come Back — Like a Reign of Terror During the French Revolution”
You betcha, "Rabbi," we don't want you to come back. Like the Covid virus- once was enough. Unfortunately for us, here you are already.
Breaking: Trump Signs Insurrection Act! General Michael Flynn to Be Appointed Vice President!
And here I didn't know that Trump could fire his elected Vice President and appoint a new, even worse one, whenever he wanted.
"Robert David Steele: Italian President Arrested! Internet & Debit Machines To Go Down Within Hours!"
What does the Italian President have to do with debit machines? Anyway, if you think this actually happened, you should skip Wingnut Wrapup and just go to the original sources.
Mike Miller, Red State: "Melania Trump Breaks Silence on Capitol Riot; Drops Beatdown on 'Salacious Gossip, False and Misleading Statements on Me'
Because that's what people care about now- liberals being mean to Melania and how that makes her feel.
Brandon Morse, Red State: "What Happened On Capitol Hill Is Just a Symptom of a Larger Disease"
Right on, brother! Finally you are ready to admit how sick the Republican party is. Wait, that's not what you meant? I'm so surprised:
"But as was discussed earlier today, the penchant for violence has been a characteristic of the left for the past four years more than it has been in the past few decades. The left continues to set the pace for how discourse goes in America with every riot and mob."
Right wingers, who you guys have been egging on to violence for years, attack the Capitol with the intent of murdering legislators and the vice President, and it is clearly the fault of the liberals. Well, what did we expect them to say?
And after that, surely it's time for a Conservative humor break:
Bonchie, Red State: "Is Joe Biden a Gross Racist or Just a Senile Old Kook?"
The vital question of the day. Except for maybe whether Melania's feelings were hurt by liberals pointing out that she is as bad as her husband. And now for something truly loathsome:
Dennis Prager, Town Hall: "In my last column, I described how I have come to better understand the moral problem of the "'good German,' the term used to describe the average, presumably decent German, who did nothing to hurt Jews but also did nothing to help them and did nothing to undermine the Nazi regime.
Watching America accept the rationally and morally indefensible physical and economic lockdown of the country, I concluded: "Apathy in the face of tyranny turns out not to be a German or Russian characteristic. I just never thought it could happen in America."
Yes, trying to stop a murderous epidemic by following scientific advice is just the same as murdering millions of innocent people. Did I ever mention that Dennis Prager is one of the most loathsome human beings in history? Want a little more from Dennis? Well, here you are:
"In one week, it has gotten worse. Now we are faced with a lockdown on speech the likes of which have never been seen in America. And the parallels with Germany are even more stark. The left-wing party (the Democrats) and the left-wing media (the "mainstream media") are using the mob invasion of the Capitol exactly the way the Nazis used the Reichstag fire.
On Feb. 27, 1933, exactly one month after the Nazis came to power, the German parliament building, the Reichstag, was set ablaze. The Nazis blamed the fire on their archenemy, the communists, and used the fire to essentially extinguish the Communist Party and its ability to publish, speak or otherwise spread its message. Using the Reichstag fire as an excuse, the Nazis passed the Enabling Act, a law that gave the Nazi chancellor, Adolf Hitler, the power to pass laws by decree -- without the Reichstag."
Dennis goes on to claim that some private companies banning Donald Trump from their platforms is exactly the same as the Nazis doing away with the legislature and letting their dear leader rule the country any way he wants. Remind me, Dennis, which party is it, exactly, that has tried to establish one man law in the United States? And remind me, Dennis, which party, exactly, sent a violent mob to the national legislature to force them to do whatever the dear leader wants? I often talk about projection, but this is really projection on a whole new level.
Ben Shapiro, Town Hall: "Last week, the Capitol was breached by a group of fringe Trump supporters who had bought into a series of lies: the lie that President Donald Trump lost the election due to proven voter fraud and irregularity; the lie that the Electoral College results, legally certified state by state, could be overturned by Congress or the vice president; the lie that Trump would remain in office if only some sort of armed rebellion were to prevent the election certification by Congress. Those were lies. And those lies had deadly consequences."
Good so far, right. But wait, there's more, because you know that Ben could not get through a single piece without being a total dick:
"That's because while the Democratic Party and the political left agree that Joe Biden is president-elect, they absolutely disagree with both the fundamental precept that violence in pursuit of political ends is a deep wrong and the even more fundamental precept that claims require evidence."
Strung you along and then gotcha!! It's all the Democrats' fault! They're the ones that are for lies and violence. Because of course. Despite what we have seen this week.
Thomas Sowell, Town Hall: "Is Truth Irrelevant? For too many people, especially in the media, what is right and wrong, true or false, depends on who it helps or hurts politically."
See, it was just as wrong, for example, for Allied soldiers to kill Nazis as it was for the Nazis to kill millions in their death camps. Who they were helping or hurting is irrelevant. If it is wrong for Republicans to try to destroy our government, it is equally wrong for Democrats to demand that Republicans stop being racist bastards.
Stephen Kruiser, PJ Media: "The Morning Briefing: Republican Turncoats Are More Vile Than Democrats"
ALL Republicans are more vile than ALL Democrats. Deal with that, Stephen.
Larry Elder, Town Hall: "Twitter Permanently Bans Trump; Why Do Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Harry Reid Get a Pass?"
Why do you think, you dumbass? Hillary, Jimmy Carter and Harry Reid did not, in my recollection, try a violent overthrow of the American government to make themselves dictators for life.
"If the House GOP Conference Doesn't Boot Liz Cheney From Leadership They Will Deserve What Happens Next"
What, a functioning government? That really would be a tragedy. For Republicans, anyway.
Time for some Conservative humor again:
And now, let's finish with some material from the outer reaches of the right wing world:
"Exposure Of The Pedophilia Done By The Elite Is Going To Be Made Public In The Coming Few Days...Lin Wood is telling all patriots that full exposure of the Obama’s, Clinton’s, Biden’s and many more is coming in the next 10-14 days!"
Of course, they have been predicting this is "coming in the next 10-14 days" every week for the last three years. This comes from Trump attorney Lin Wood, who had this said about him by a judge this week:
"A Delaware Superior Court judge slammed pro-Trump attorney Lin Wood in a Monday decision, revoking Wood's right to represent ex-Trump aide Carter Page in a defamation suit stemming from the Mueller investigation.
"The conduct of Mr. Wood, albeit not in my jurisdiction, exhibited a toxic stew of mendacity, prevarication and surprising incompetence," Judge Craig Karsnitz wrote.
Karsnitz said that he is required to "ensure that those practicing before me are of sufficient character, and conduct themselves with sufficient civility and truthfulness..."
Boy, that's not a good job recommendation. Unless, of course, you are a client like Donald Trump, who has no need for a lawyer who won't engage in "a toxic stew of mendacity, prevarication and surprising incompetence." For Donald, that is a feature, not a bug. And now, this good advice:
Some of you may recognize my name. I have daily briefing with POTUS and have posted here before a handful of times as a “helper”. What I’m about to disclose is the most important post you’ll read before the inauguration."
Because sure it is. And because we believe you implicitly when you tell us you have daily briefings with Trump. What about, his golf game?
What happens this week will change history. We are asking you, for now, to stay in your homes and do NOT under any circumstances interfere with the operation. You’ll soon see things unfold that many would think impossible. POTUS is insulated and 100% safe. Our plan is almost complete. The DS has already lost. Everything you’re seeing in the MSM and on Twitter is a last-ditch attempt. Why has Kamala not yet left the senate? Where is Joe? Where is Joe really? Hunter has turned himself in.
Joe is on TV practically every day, idiot. And boy are we glad to hear that "POTUS" is safe from the violent jackass army that he created.
DO NOT travel to any large cities (especially Philadelphia) for the rest of the month. Military operations will be taking place in many of the major corrupt cities. People will start rioting once this intel breaks thinking Trump is a military dictator. He only has 13 days to put this dog down."
"It appears there were some Special Ops members dressed as Trump supporters who went in with the crowd of protesters that were able to secure 20+ laptops w/hard drives with data regarding sex trafficking intel from both, Pelosi and Schumer’s offices."
The special ops members were dressed as Trump supporters because they are Trump supporters. And of course, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer keep the evidence of their "sex trafficking" on laptops in their offices. That makes sense.
"Trump Has It 1000%!! Two Prison Barges To Gitmo Adding 12000 Inmates! Arrests Will Include Mayors, Former Presidents, First Ladies, Judges, Police Chiefs, Billionaires, Media, Hollywood! Humanity Will Be Shocked At The Horror Of Evidence! Frosting On The Cake Are 15 Congress Laptops Including Nancy Pelosi's!!"
I repeat something I said above: They have been predicting the same thing every single week for the last three years. Hasn't happened yet. Well, Trump still has a week.
"...there are people in the know you can trust. They are DJT, Sidney Powell, Lin Wood and Gen Flynn."
We dealt with Lin Wood above. As for the others, you have a guy who has told thirty thousand lies in the last four years, a convicted felon and a patently psychotic lawyer who Trump himself fired for being too crazy. You can trust them, for sure.
"Child Lived In Deep Underground Military Base Cage, She Was Raped By A Reptilian And Trained To Be A Super Soldier"
That's what they are claiming. And it might be true. Maybe.
"I Killed Bruce Lee with the Death Touch - Caution: Don't Use it Unless Your Life is in DANGER!"
That link was there too. Must be true because all of these other things are so clearly true.
"TRUMPET NEWS ~ Russian Operatives Stormed U.S. Capitol?"
Yeah, that's right, it was Russian operatives, not right wing traitors.
"Breaking: US Has Just Declared War on China!"
Too unimportant, apparently, for any mainstream news outlet to report it.
"Demon Observed By Hundreds At Midday On Vatican Roof "
And on and on it goes.
"None of the big boy politicians and leftist media have any place to hide. Trump and the military have all the proof of their crimes now. This includes, flights, bank accounts, meetings, emails, phone calls, laptops full of info on the election plot, players, witnesses, whistle blowers and machines. All this will be revealed soon by Trump himself at the right time."
All will be revealed soon by Trump at the right time. Don't hold your breath, wingnuts.
Well, enough. We will be having a lot to watch the next week or two, and then Green Eagle will proudly bring you the right wing explanation for the fact that not one damned thing they predict over and over again ever comes true.
