Friday Sex Crimes Report

 I've already commented below about the self-authored confession by Joel Greenberg that he and Matt Gaetz did pay an underage girl for sex.  That's hardly the only Republican sex crime we heard about today:

Remember Josh Duggar, scion of one of Evangelical Christianity's most sainted family, who was caught a couple of years ago molesting his young sisters, and ended up paying zero legal penalties for that act?  Well, today, Duggar was arrested for possession of child pornography, apparently containing photos of sexual acts perpetrated on girls who were "younger than twelve."  This time, no bail, according to the Judge, and hopefully this bastard will never see the sun outside of a prison ever again.

And then there is the case of Idaho State Rep. Aaron von Ehlinger, who resigned from his position today just a few steps ahead of a posse of his colleagues who were about to boot him out.  Ehrlinger, 38, apparently lured a 19 year old legislative employee to his apartment and raped her.  Since that became known, several more female State Capitol employees have made claims of unwanted advances.  Shades of Matt Gaetz, huh?

Oh, did I mention that they are all white Republicans?  Not black people selling cigarettes on the street or with a broken tail light, or they would be dead now.

Scientific Proof- You Can Fuck Yourself


From the Washington Post today, although I am sure you have heard the story:

"The controversy surrounding embattled Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) took a wild new turn Thursday night, with the Daily Beast reporting that his ally wrote a confession letter implicating both of them in having sex with a 17-year old girl. And perhaps not hugely surprising, Roger Stone is suddenly involved.

The Daily Beast obtained alleged drafts of the confession letter that Joel Greenberg wrote and text messages between him and Stone indicating it was part of a plan to obtain a pardon for Greenberg from President Donald Trump. Greenberg and Stone also reportedly discussed Greenberg paying Stone $250,000, apparently if the pardon effort was successful (which it was not)."

If there is one thing I learned from watching Cops years ago, it is that criminals are really stupid, but can they possibly be this stupid?  This idiot Greenberg wrote a confession, in his own handwriting, just to make it undeniable that it came from him, to abominable sex crimes committed by himself and everybody's favorite Congressman, Matt Gaetz.  He The proceeded to give this handwritten confession to Roger Stone, the world's biggest ratfucker, who promised to get him a pardon from Donald Trump, the world's second biggest ratfucker, in return for $250,000, or perhaps $300,000.

Well, surprise, surprise, Greenberg didn't get the pardon, because there was nothing in it for Trump, and Stone didn't get the cash.  So what could you expect to happen to that letter?  In another development that surprises nobody, the letter suddenly "leaked" to the press.  

Buddy, I hate to break this to you, but that is what happens when someone blackmails you with evidence thoughtfully provided by yourself, and you fail to cough up the dough.  Because this is what happened here, as anyone can see.  So, in addition to Roger Stone's other well-known malicious features, we can now add that of blackmailer.  No crime too low for Republicans, if it might pull in a few hundred thousand easy bucks.

"Liveblog-" of Hillary Clinton's "Guantanamo Treason Trial" Day 5


Yes sir, here is the "liveblog" of the last day of the Guantanamo Bay military treason trial of Hillary Clinton, for a whole host of charges that you have undoubtedly heard all too many times already.

When we left, the first day was just concluding when Hillary dropped to the floor and seemed to experience some sort of epileptic fit, after which she was dragged back to her cell, which she proceded to smear with her own poop.  Certainly sounds like Hillary, huh?

Well, the next few days seem to have been quite boring, so I will cut to the coverage of the last day of the trial.  Here we go:

Clinton Military Tribunal: Day 5 CONVICTION!

What a surprise verdict! 

A military tribunal on Thursday convicted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, accessory to murder, child trafficking, endangering a minor, treason, and sedition.

What, that's all?  What about the e-mails and Benghazi? 

The two male, one female panel of officers cast a unanimous verdict shortly after Vice Adm. John G. Hannink, who prosecuted the military’s case against Clinton, showcased his final witness for the prosecution, Clinton’s former strategist and lover, Huma Abedin.

Lover.  Old lies never die. 

In exchange for leniency and a plea deal, Abedin testified she and Clinton had “shared” underage children with her estranged ex-husband, Anthony Weiner. Pressed to clarify her definition of the word “shared,” Abedin qualified her answer by saying they had “practiced” lewd and lascivious behavior on underprivileged minors Clinton had imported into the United States.

“American children?” Vice Adm. Hannink asked.

“Yes, but not primarily. They’re too easy to track. More often than not from poor countries,” Abedin replied.

The sheer malignancy of these fantasies is really hard to believe, coming from a party that is demanding that Maxine Waters be expelled from Congress for daring to tell people to keep protesting until they get some degree of justice. 

  This is a fantasy with a long history.

Asked to quantify their exploits, Abedin said she couldn’t count the number of underage boys and girls Clinton had brought to the United States under the pretense of providing them with a fruitful life, but she told the tribunal there had been “many,” most of whom were later “sold or donated” to influential members of the Clinton cabal.

“Who are the people?” Vice Adm. Hannink asked.

“We never knew, exactly. It’s not like Hillary peddled them herself. She had someone handle that, and I don’t know the person’s name,” Abedin replied.

“And yet she still refuses to speak,” Vice Adm. Hannink observed.

A courtroom confrontation that clearly really took place.  Can anyone believe this garbage?  Okay, I'll answer my own question- yes they can.  Millions of them who won't believe that Covid is real or that Trump colluded with the Russians despite massive proof of both of those things, would believe this in a second. 

The tribunal arrived at a guilty verdict after deliberating only five minutes. They found Clinton guilty on all charges the military had laid out—the murders of Seth Rich, Vince Foster, and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia; trafficking and abusing minors from Haiti and other third-world nations; conspiring to assassinate a presidential candidate.

Do you notice something clearly missing from this account of the "trial?"  Apparently, Hillary was not allowed an opportunity to present a defense to the charges.  And the military judges took only five minutes to vote guilty on all charges.  That was fast work. 

As she had throughout the tribunal, Clinton stayed eerily silent as the verdict was read and the officers recommended she receive the death penalty for her crimes.

I'm just surprised that she didn't break out into an evil cackle and fly out the window on a broom. 


Vice Adm. Hannink asked Clinton if she had preference in how the military carried out her sentence, but still she refused to speak.

“This tribunal therefore decides that the defendant, detainee Hillary Rodham Clinton, be hanged by the neck until dead,” Vice Adm. Hannink said flatly. “The sentence will be carried out on April 26, after Taps.”

Huma Abedin will face her own military tribunal, at a date yet to be decided, RRN has learned.

On one level, this is just a reminder of the sheer, blind, unreasoning hatred that is the primary governing principle of the Republican party today.  However, look on the bright side:  it is a sign of how impotent they are at finding a single real issue to attack a Democratic President whose actions are approved by a vast majority of the sane people remaining in this country.  Anybody thinking that a bipartisan governing coalition can be formed with such people is a fool.  They have been all infected with a virus far more deadly that Covid: a complete neutering of any sense of truth, morality and common human decency.  And in my opinion, it is an incurable disease,  from which there is no release except death.  Trying to cure them of this hatred is impossible; all we can do is to work to prevent as few new infections as possible in the future.  

This derangement of a large section of the population of our country is, as I have said before, by far the worst thing the Republican party has ever done, and it laid the foundation for them to get away with all the corruption, criminality and betrayal that is their way of life.

The True Price of Pandering to Lunatics Like QAnon

 I don't know that I have ever done this, but I am going to simply reprint an entire post by Lincoln Green at Daily Kos, because I believe the issue is so important and I couldn't put it any better than he did.  Lincoln, please forgive me for the theft.

"QAnon promoters helped kill those three little children

In “Mother unraveled in depression, QAnon-style conspiracies in months before she killed 3 kids”, Matt Hamilton and Richard Winton today reported in the LA Times the horrifying story of how Liliana Carrillo came to kill her children Joanna, 3; Terry, 2; and Sierra, 6 months.

Carrillo was already having trouble with postpartum depression, anger, and childhood trauma. She was treated for depression but quit therapy and refused to take her meds.

What put her over the edge was QAnon.

Carrillo was convinced that a child sex-trafficking ring was active in her Porterville neighborhood. In her madness she eventually accused her boyfriend of sexually abusing their three-year-old. Before killing her children she wrote a manifesto saying, “I know that Porterville is the root of all evil right now. Both of my children have now vocalized to me more than once that their private parts hurt.” In a television interview Thursday, she said “I drowned them.… Do I wish that I didn’t have to do that? Yes. But I prefer them not being tortured and abused on a regular basis for the rest of their lives.”

It’s all classic QAnon.

The people who promote QAnon are partly responsible for the deaths of those three innocent young children.

Not that many of them care. QAnon is like a big game for them. They think QAnon is fun."

I would have lined to the original LA Times story, but it is behind a paywall.

 These people are murderers.  They don't think QAnon is fun- what they think is that it would be a wonderful way to end the meaninglessness of their own lives by promoting mass violence all over the country.  I've heard a fair amount of talk over the last year or so about Republicans being a "death cult."  This is a pretty fair example of what people mean when they say this.  These subhumans need to be stamped out by any means necessary before they turn this country into a place that is possibly worse than Nazi Germany- like a mixture of Hitler, Idi Amin and Pol Pot all in the same place.

Wingnut Wrapup

 Two things too idiotic to even cover today:  The Republican war on baseball, and the synthetic furor over "vaccine passports."  Okay?  Then on we go.  And never forget how many Republicans are willing to believe, or claim to believe, anything, as long as it is a pile of bullying lies directed at their opponents.  From Daily Kos:

" A new poll shows that over half of Republican voters believe Republican false claims that the election was "stolen" from Trump, and almost that many falsely believe the attempted insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in January either was "peaceful" or that secret leftists staged it to make Dear Leader look bad."

No sucker like a Republican sucker. 

"Situation Update, April 5th, 2021 - Nazi-Style Covid Death Camps Coming to Every Democrat-Controlled City!"

Nazi style death camps.  You'd think that would make them very popular among Republicans.

"If Βiden Is Fully Ιn Control, Why Ιs Τrump Now Saying Ηe Will Do This? About Ιt & More! All Revealed!  If TRUMP wasn’t still in some kind of charge why else would he be going to check out the border former presidents don’t go check out a real president problem GOD SPEED."

This sick narcissist can't stop trying to bully his way into getting attention?  That's my guess

Dennis Prager, Town Hall:  "Mask-Wearing Represents Fear and Blind Obedience, Not Science"

"Blind obedience" to the scientific evidence, instead of doing whatever grandmaster liar Dennis Prager tells you to.

Stephen Moore, Town Hall:  "President Ronald Reagan used to refer to our country as "these United States," not "the United States.  That may seem to be an inconsequential grammatical difference, but a whole different philosophy of our system of government is embedded in that phraseology."

The name of our country is "The United States."  Biden was calling it by its name while Reagan was just engaging in the right wing demagoguing that has bred 40 million traitors in this country.  Besides, talk about a President too senile to know what he was saying.

"This brings us to President Joe Biden. No president in modern times, perhaps ever, has shown such contempt for our system of federalism."

What, not even the one I seem to remember inciting an attack on the greatest symbol of our democracy, the Capitol building, in order to overthrow the government of the United States?  Well, maybe that happened too long ago for right wingers to remember it.

Natural News:  "Situation Update, April 7th, 2021 - Alert: The CDC Will Release Biowarfare Pathogens in Texas and FL"

These people (example this time- the execrable Mike Adams, who has made himself very rich promoting fraudulent medical treatments, and who jumped on the "covid is a Democratic lie" bus a long time ago) want you to believe that the coming surges in sickness and death coming from Texas and Florida due to their Republican governments' refusal to do their duty, are actually a Democratic death plot.

Before it's News:  "Former Men In Black Agent Gives Wild Confession About Killing Bill Cooper, Demonic Aliens, DUMBs"

Men in Black was a movie, dumbass.

Jeffrey I. Barke, M.D.:  "How 'It's Covered by Insurance' Wrecks Health Care"

Yes, they are now arguing against any form of insurance.  Want to be treated because that truck ran into you?  Cough up the money in advance.  Of course, this only applies to you, not them.  I'm sure you understand the sage political reasoning behind that.

Newsmax:  "Trump: NY Times Wrong, Gaetz Never Asked for Pardon"

And who are you going to believe?  The New York Times or the biggest liar in the history of our country?  By the way, I would have rather had him pardon this pervert than the traitor Paul Manafort.  

And now the major Democratic scandal of the day:

Breitbart:  "White House Defends Kamala Harris Getting Cake in Chicago Despite Ongoing Border Crisis"

If she had eaten pie, all of the people at the border would have gone home.

Cassandra Fairbanks, Gateway Pundit:  "Alex Jones Physically Stops Vehicle After Witnessing Migrant Children Being Stuffed in the Luggage Compartment"

And if you believe that one, well...

Matt Shuhan, Talking Points Memo:  "Charity Helping Migrants Says Alex Jones Used ‘Staged Confrontation’ To Allege Trafficking...In a video clip that, according to Jones’ website, has been viewed more than 1.5 million times, the far-right host and other members of his crew are seen standing in front of an SUV carrying several children and their mothers, stopping the vehicle from moving while alleging that the children were being trafficked.  In reality, the video showed “a staged confrontation interrupting the goodwill of someone providing assistance in the form of transportation for three mothers and their children to the Humanitarian Respite Center,” said Sister Norma Pimentel, executive director of the Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, in a statement to TPM."

I won't say that I told you so, because I am sure that you were capable of seeing this coming from a mile away.  Currently, viewership of the video is approaching 2 million.  How many do you think will ever see the truth?

Liberty Airwaves:  "D.C. in Turmoil as Biden’s Secret Police Go Rogue"

Biden's secret police.  Please, do tell us more:

"Joe Biden’s CIA is going rogue.  And he was hoping no one would find out about it.  But now D.C. is buzzing after a group of Republicans decided to push back.

A report from the Department of Homeland Security was declassified at the beginning of March. This report showed that the CIA and other intelligence agencies are directly involved with targeting people they believe to be “domestic terrorists”

Well, at least they are pretty much admitting that the domestic terrorists are on their side.  And it's sort of funny that targeting terrorists is now considered going rogue.

"Of course, Joe Biden and the media won’t talk about any of these developments."

The fact that they aren't happening isn't reason enough to ignore them.

"The Illuminati’s Secret Celebrity Murder and Cloning Centers, Explained (Must see video)"

The illuminati.  Nothing in wingnut world ever goes away, except the truth.

"Vaccine Zombies! mRNA Vaccines May Cause Prions to Eat Your Brain! - Mike Adams Must Video"

Mike Adams again.  What an asshole.  Here's a little more of Mike's reasoning:

"Since no benign reason is apparent, the use of vaccine passports could issue in a totalitarianism unlike the world has ever seen. Recalling the evil of Stalin, Mao, and Hitler, “mass depopulation” remains a logical outcome."

"No benign reason..."  Allowing people to get back to a relatively normal life without a few million more deaths is apparently deeply evil.

Larry Elder, Town Hall:  "Had Obama Not Played the Race Card, George Floyd Might Be Alive"

I blame Obama!  It never gets old.  I guess this is sort of like the story of the guy who goes way back in time and accidentally kills a butterfly, and then returns to the present to discover that the Nazis won World War II.  You just can't be too careful.  The damage that Presidenting while Black might do can be extensive.

John Kass, Town Hall:  "Biden Will Go Down as the President Who Poisoned Baseball"

Well, at least he didn't poison apple pie and mom.

Wayne Allyn Root, Town Hall:  "We have a madman in the White House.  President Joe Biden is either insane; or he doesn't care about the lives of Americans like you and me and our precious children; or he's a puppet for the forces of evil, intent on destroying this great country.

All hell is about to break loose. The next 9/11 could be weeks or days or minutes away. All because we have a madman in the White House...Terrorists are here. Along with murderers, rapists, MS-13 gang-bangers, drug dealers, sex traffickers and pedophiles.

Anyone can see what's coming. Another 9/11 is on the way. Or a massacre at a college, church or synagogue. Or a dirty bomb that makes a major U.S. city uninhabitable for decades.  America is on the brink. One man is to blame. Biden let them in. Biden did this to us. Biden opened the door to the destruction of America."

Nothing like arguing with a reasonable opponent honestly trying to find the truth, is there?

Matt Vespa, Town Hall:  "Confirmed: The Laptop Belongs to Hunter Biden...And the Liberal Media Can Eat a Ton of Crow"

Based on a claim printed in the Daily Mail, a British tabloid with a worse history of lying than the right wing outlets in the United States.  Of course, other than the claim, no evidence of any kind is provided by Matt that the laptop is Hunter's, or even that it exists.

Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "“A Demented Pervert – Who Can’t Tie His Own Shoelaces or Know Where He Is” – Sidney Powell Goes Off on Imposter President Joe Biden"

Sidney Powell.  January's lunatic of the month.  Whatever.  

Mike Adams, the Health Ranger:  "Situation Update, April 14th, 2021 - Vaccine Death Wave Now Unstoppable! 122 Million Americans Join Fatal Medical Experiment!"

From perhaps the biggest medical con man in the country, Mike Adams.  Really, he is murdering people to make money, and should be in prison for the rest of his life like any serial killer.

And now it's time for our weekly dose of Jew-baiting:

"Nancy Messonnier(née Rosenstein) (Jew) is an American physician who serves as the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseasesat the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Sister of Rod Rosenstein, former Attorney General and daughter of Heinrich Himmler.

Jacob Rothschild (Jew), George Soros (Jew), David Rockefeller (Jew) Adolf Hitler (Jew), FDR (Jew), Dwight Eisenhower (Jew), LBJ (Jew), Winston Churchill (Jew), Joseph Stalin (Jew), Bill Gates (Jew), Tony Fauci (Jew), Henry Kissinger (Jew), Vladimir Putin (Jew), Angela Merkel (Jew), Klaus Schwab (Jew) Donald Trump (Jew), Recep Erdogan (Jew), Xi Jinping (Jew), Barack Obama (Jew), George Bush and George W (Jew) Bill and Hillary Clinton (Jews) Nancy Pelosi (Jew) Kamala Harris (Jew) and Joe Biden (Rephaim [child of a fallen angel and a human] and is a Jew and a  Zionist).  The main antiChrist Antonio Guterres is a Jew as well as False Prophet Francis (Jew). Boris Johnson (Jew), Emanuel Macron (Jew) and John Kerry (Jew).

The Babylonian Talmud commands all Jews to kill all non Jews so do not trust their Jewish Covid 19 vaccines and do not trust a Jewish doctor to save you or your Jewish controlled government that wants you dead!"

In case you have heard this claim about the Talmud before- it is a complete lie.  I don't think it is necessary to comment on the list of "Jews" above, except to note that at least it didn't include Abraham Lincoln, who one wingnut claims was a Jew actually named Springsteen.  I kid you not.

"Mao Tse-Tung: An Alumni Of Yale University's "Order Of Skull & Bones."

Believe that one, do you?  I'm just surprised that he wasn't on the list of Jews.

Dr. Turi, Before It's News:  "Justin Bieber – Reptilius Universal Psychical Infestation - Are you next?  Bieber is part of the Plutonic “Death Wish Generation” and those passionate souls are dangerous to others and themselves since they are highly suicidal!  They are a magnet to fulfill the reptilius agenda, but how many of you are curious enough to read my book “The Power of the Dragon?”  to find out how the Dragon is blessing or cursing your destiny."

Justin Bieber- man that is a slam against liberals.  Don't forget to buy Dr. Turi's book about how Justin Bieber is a tool of evil aliens.

Brad Slager, Town Hall:  "Corporations Join the Election Law Debate and America Opposes them by Voting With Their Wallets"

Will it surprise you to know that Brad does not cite a single statistic indicating that any of these companies have lost a penny due to supporting a position held by the vast majority of their customers?  Of course it is the Republican way to try to destroy anyone who stands in the way of their greed and lust for power, so presumably the companies will experience some minor loss of business, but hardly enough to compare to what would happen if the Republicans get their chance to cause the next depression.

And now a new example of a developing Republican art form- extended fantasies about how they are going to make their opponents pay for standing in the way of their hero and his fascist agenda:  

Real Raw News:  "The man who calls himself President of the United States, Joseph R. Biden, was denied entry to the Pentagon on Friday, Real Raw News has learned.  Shortly after holding a meeting with Democratic lawmakers to discuss ways of imposing more restrictive gun-control legislation, Biden went to Arlington, VA to discuss with Pentagon officials his planned withdrawal of all U.S. Armed Forces from Afghanistan. He had also sought to convince military leaders that Iran’s decision to enrich weapons-grade plutonium to 60% did not threaten U.S. interests, said an administration source speaking under condition of anonymity.

But Biden never made it inside.

Our source said U.S. Pentagon Police, part of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, stopped Biden and his Secret Service detail in their tracks, informing them that they had received standing orders to prevent any member of the Biden administration from stepping inside the building. Those orders reportedly included the use of deadly force.

Biden, our source added, became belligerent, saying as the President of the United States he had unrestricted access to all federal properties, including the Pentagon. He then instructed his three-man SS detail to “resolve the issue.”

A. Can you imagine Joe Biden becoming belligerent? That was the specialty of their President.  and B. Is it really an act of belligerence to suggest that the President can enter the Pentagon?  Finally, C.  Note that now that a Democrat is in the White House, the Secret Service has  morphed into the SS.

"Pentagon police drew sidearms, our source said.  It is possible that (Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mark) Milley was overthrown, and Marine Corps Gen. David Berger has assumed command of the Joint Chiefs of Staff."

It's possible that Frodo really did throw the ring into the crack of doom, too, I guess.

a tidbit from Wikipedia:

"After the 1986 reorganization of the Armed Forces undertaken by the Goldwater–Nichols Act, the Joint Chiefs of Staff does not possess operational authority over troops or other units. Responsibility for conducting military operations goes from the president to the secretary of defense directly to the commanders of the unified combatant commands and thus bypasses the Joint Chiefs of Staff completely."

So if this did happen it is a coup and an act of treason.  Luckily, only a brain-dead idiot would believe any of this.  Along these lines, I will shortly post a "liveblog" of the last day of Hillary's trial for treason that took place this week at Guantanamo.  That will prove amusing.

Before it's News:  "CDMedia spoke the other day with former CEO Patrick Byrne who stated that he believes the world will know within the next two months whether or not Donald Trump is returning to the White House to oust Joe Biden."

All of us sane people already know the answer to that one, but go on milking your ignorant suckers for more cash by promising them the second coming of their God-king.

 “We have irrefutable proof,” Byrne says. “It is shocking what happened and who was involved. The information will all come out over the next few weeks. No one will be able to say this is not true.”

The information has been "coming out over the next few weeks" since November, idiot.

"Back in February, Byrne published a book outlining the “irrefutable proof” of which he speaks.  Byrne is selling the book for $4.99"

Pay for the truth, suckers.

"another commenter wrote that if it can be proven that foreign interference resulted in Hunter’s dad stealing the election, then “his election can be overturned and everything he signed is null and void.”

With the treasury department announcement this week of clear Russian collusion in Trump's election, I wonder if that applies to him too?  As usual, just accusing their opponents of their own crimes, to muddy the water- something Republicans have raised to a fine art.

Before it's News:  "WARNING: Man Proves That Covid-19 Tests Are Cancerous!"

People who publish things like this should be imprisoned for complicity in mass murder.

And with that, we come to the end of our latest stroll through the byways of voluntary insanity in our country.  See you soon.

Nothing to See Here...Except Treason and Four Years of Lies

 But it's just another boring news day if a Republican does it- nothing to get excited about.

From Yesterday's Washington Post:

"The government finally connects the line from Trump’s campaign to Russian intelligence

So much for the ‘Russia hoax’ hoax...

(Constantine) Kilimnik, who was indicted by Mueller’s team, sat at the center of one of the more obvious places where the campaign of then-candidate Donald Trump might have intersected with Russia’s efforts to get Trump elected. Kilimnik had worked with Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort for years before Manafort joined the campaign effort despite (or perhaps because of) his sketchy connections to Russia. One of Manafort’s primary clients in the years before his volunteering to work for Trump without pay was a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine. Their mutual colleague Rick Gates told various people that he believed Kilimnik was a “spy,” according to Mueller’s report, but that didn’t keep the three from sharing information during the campaign — while both Gates and Manafort worked directly for Trump...

Trump hires Manafort to run his campaign. Manafort then orders Gates, his deputy, to provide polling and strategy information to Kilimnik, their longtime colleague and, according to the Senate committee, a Russian intelligence officer. Kilimnik then shares that information with Russian intelligence agents.

Two days before Christmas last year, Trump, by then a lame duck, granted Manafort a pardon."

Well, in some sense this is not news, since anyone with half a brain knew it was going on.  So no wonder that, while the story of some scum politician's perverted sex life lasts for months, this revelation has already disappeared from the pages of the Post, and I'm guessing, just about everywhere else in the mainstream press.  

Still, you can count on Green Eagle to harp on the subject.  First, let me start with another quote:

"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort."

If providing material assistance to the spy agency of a hostile foreign power, for the purpose of allowing them to rig our Presidential elections does not fit this description, then virtually nothing could.*  To be blunt, Donald Trump and his henchmen committed treason in order to win the Presidency.  And as I said above, this is hardly news; we have known it for years.  

Second, the endless Republican screams of "no collusion," whose deafening repetition have convinced a large part of the American people, were never anything but lies, as the truth was right in front of everyone's face all along.

And finally, I wish to reiterate something about the sainted Robert Mueller, which I was virtually alone in saying at the time that his report was released.  One of Green Eagle's primary principles of politics is that there is absolutely no such thing as an honest Republican.  And that includes Mueller, who pulled off the amazing feat of aiding Trump to escape the consequences of his crime, while coming out with an intact reputation.  He did this by a simple strategy: he spent months in a seemingly impeccable investigation of the circumstances of Trump's treachery, and then just refused to draw the obvious conclusions from the evidence, even in the face of massive lying from Attorney General Barr and Trump himself.  

So, the Republicans will go on screaming "no collusion," even in the face of all the evidence, from now until the day their inaction on climate change exterminates the human race.

* And don't even get me going about the ludicrous Republican claim that there has to be a declared state of war before someone can commit treason.  I have written at some length about this distortion of the historical record, so if you are interested, you can go here.

Republicans Attack Baseball

 "On Tuesday, Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Ted Cruz of Texas, and Josh Hawley of Missouri announced an effort to punish MLB by removing its antitrust shield. Lee said the legal exemption had been created from "whole cloth" by the Supreme Court nearly 100 years ago.

Cruz...criticized "woke corporations" for becoming a "political enforcer for Democrats" in Washington."

Mom and apple pie, you two had better keep in line and watch what you say, because you are next on the list.

Can a party that has veered this far into actual derangement hope to find a base large enough to keep them in existence?  Particularly if they lose any significant amount of the corporate money which has kept them competitive for decades.  

I suspect that the Republicans' "logic" goes something like this:  Major league baseball teams of necessity only exist in large cities.  Large cities are full of Democrats.  So we'll punish those Democratic voters by taking away their fun.  Our base of ignorant, stupid assholes out in the countryside will happily give up watching baseball on TV in order to hurt the libs, because they are willing to give up everything to hurt the libs.  We'll see how that goes.

It Has To Be True...

 I read it on the internet!

We've gotten used to seeing liveblogging of important events, say a hearing for a new Supreme Court justice or a Congressional vote on a major issue.  Of course, nothing on earth is too straightforward that wingnuts can't find a way to abuse it for their own purposes.  

What follows are excerpts from a purported liveblog entitled "Clinton Military Tribunal: Day 1."  Get ready to enter the twilight zone:

"A military tribunal on Thursday morning convened at Guantanamo Bay to decide whether Hillary Rodham Clinton will be exonerated of charges including treason, conspiring with the enemy, destruction of government property, money laundering and conspiracy to commit murder, or if she will ultimately stand before a gallows or a firing squad.

Three U.S. military officers—two males and one female, serving as both judge and jury—listened for two hours as Vice Adm. John G. Hannink of the U.S. Navy’s Judge Advocate General’s Corps listed eighteen specific charges against Clinton and said he would supply compelling and incontrovertible evidence linking her to countless atrocities against the nation and its population.

Vice Admiral John G. Hannink is the head of the Judge Advocate General's office, just in case you wondered.   

The most egregious charges implicated Clinton in murder-for-hire plots against politicians and media entities who were critical of her methods and motives while serving as Secretary of State under Barack Hussein Obama.

Because of course they were.  Everybody knows that Hillary is a deranged serial killer. 

(Vice Adm. Hannink) showed the tribunal a decrypted email sent by Clinton to her advisor and political strategist, Huma Abedin. The email had a brief and ominous allusion to Clinton’s goals: “Arranging a dinner for R.S., will know soon.”

Vice Adm. Hannink asserted the innocuous sounding message was an admission of guilt; R.S.—Rich’s initials reversed, and “arranging a dinner” meant Clinton had hired an assassin to take Rich out.

Because what else could she have meant.  Everybody knows that "arranging a dinner" is State Department code for taking out a hit on someone, and when you are going to send e-mails about killing them, of course you switch their initials around so nobody could ever guess who you were talking about- except, of course, every right winger on earth. 

Vice Adm. Hannink began the inquisition by linking Clinton to the 2016 murder of Seth Rich, a former employee of the Democratic National Committee...

“She’s as arrogant as she is sloppy. When you connect the dots, there is no other explanation—Clinton contracted a paid assassin to end this man. And for what? Because he might have been a whistleblower?” Vice Adm. Hannink argued.

The possibility that she was arranging to have dinner with someone is obviously completely insane- Democrats only eat babies, and then they hoard them and would never let anyone else join in on the feast. 

Can you imagine the head of the Navy's Judge Advocate General service making this sort of an argument in court?

At that point in the tribunal, Clinton, who had remained oddly silent through the proceedings, began trembling uncontrollably as if gripped by seizure. Shackled at the wrists, she fell from her chair and flopped around on the floor like a fish out of water.

Paramedics escorted her to GITMO’s medical ward, and Vice Adm. Hannink declared the tribunal in recess until 10:00 a.m. Monday.

A fish out of water.  And there are people who willingly publish stuff like this, and apparently millions who are willing to believe it. 

I'll just finish with one of the comments on this post, revealing what is obviously the real truth:

"The real Hillary was executed back in December 2018. The Hillary arrested in early March must be a clone committing further crimes."

Joe Manchin, these are the people with whom you claim you can form a bipartisan agreement with.  In the end, are "Democrats" like you any better than them?

Green Eagle's Bookie Shop

 Is now open for business.  

The first thing we're taking bets on is, considering what has been happening on the other side of the aisle lately, and the inevitability that whatever they are doing they project on Democrats, who will be the first Republican to be revealed to have taken adrenochrome?  Brother Newt?  Clarence and Ginny Thomas?  Moscow Mitch?  The race is on.

Trump's Return to the White House Finalized!

 And no, it wasn't January 20th, or March 4th, and it won't be April 15th or April 30th either.  We now have authoritative news that Trump has picked a far more significant day to be sworn in as President, to show what a patriot he is and how much he loves America:

And this absolutely trustworthy article has so much more to tell about Trump's return:

"At his Mar-a-Lago command center, Trump and his councilors have been working tirelessly to solve and almost unsolvable jigsaw puzzle—digging up the names of all elected or appointed officials who dishonored their oath of office to America and its people...“Trump and his guys have been hunkered down at Mar-a-Lago figuring this mess out. They’re going after more than people like Pelosi, AOC, and Adam Schiff. He’s taking out their staff too, and if their staff has staff, well they might go down too. This is total purge."

Since when has Trump ever worked tirelessly at anything except thieving money and abusing women?  And like true Americans, they are going after everyone who ever voiced a word of opposition to his criminality, and the people that worked for them, and undoubtedly their families too.  

Asked how Trump plans to muster sufficient forces to enact his plan, our source said the following: “Trump has military support. Don’t believe MSM narrative about the military backing Biden. Trump is a patriot. When he gives the order, the military will respond at once, and they will arrest Joe Biden on the spot. It’ll be like Order 66 from Revenge of the Sith, except this time it’ll be the good guys giving the order.”

Six of the 8 Joint Chiefs of Staff support Donald Trump, our source added. The holdouts are Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Commandant of the Coast Guard Karl L. Schultz, both of whom Trump will give an opportunity to reconsider their allegiance. If they stick with Biden, then they, too, will receive a one-way ticket to Guantanamo Bay."

Those who do not side with the man who plans to seize the Presidency will be sent to a gulag.  How Presidential.  At least this kind of President:


"President Trump will likely issue a declaration of martial law when the arrests begin, as he doesn’t want innocent, law-abiding, patriotic Americans caught in the crossfire if the Deep State decides to resist the purge. Trump feels he has enough military support to put down the resistance, and believes expunging the Deep State will take 10 days.

“He won’t be declaring martial law to infringe on Constitutional rights, but to protect Americans in those perilous days. Trump loves America. He loves Americans. He doesn’t want harm to come to innocent bystanders. The Deep State’s desperation knows no limits, and if they know they’re going down, they might just try to take innocents with them,” our source said."

To protect Americans, because he loves them.  He doesn't want them to be harmed.  Except, of course, for the half million of them he killed by treating the Coronavirus as nothing but a way to try to stay in office.  That having failed, he will just swear himself in and declare martial law.  How patriotic. 

"After the purge, Trump will rescind martial law and return the U.S. to the people as he is rightfully sworn into office."

After, of course, he has killed or imprisoned anyone who dares to stand up to him in any way.  Whoever is left to kiss his ass can go on living in the country he will create for them.  Probably something like this:

 I can hardly wait.

Wingnut Wrapup

 Let's just start with the right wingers' jackass lies about Biden's press conference, where he acted like an informed, rational human being instead of an out of control bully with no knowledge of the issues.  And please remember that a hundred times as many Republicans will read these comments as will have seen a second of the press conference:

Tim Graham, Town Hall:  "The Pro-Biden Press Corps Is Deeply Embarrassing"

The press corps that didn't ask him a single question about his incredible success in handling the vaccination program, while playing the Republicans' stooges over the nonexistent border "crisis."

Matt Vespa, Town Hall:  "Are We Just Going to Let Biden's Massive Brain Malfunction During His First Presser Slip Under the Radar?...President Joe Biden had his first press conference—and it will probably be his last for quite a while. If it wasn’t scripted, it would have been an unmitigated disaster. it was bad, but trainwreck territory was avoided given that his staff orchestrated it to the max. He rambled about the border and immigration. He prevaricated on gun control opting instead to talk about infrastructure. And then, there was the filibuster which took up the lion’s share of the presser. It was here that Biden suffered the most pronounced senior moment thus far."

Again, a complete lie about Biden's performance during the press conference, but one that will be seen by a hundred times as many right wingers as actually watched it.

Larry O'Connor, Town Hall:  "I Have Several Awkward Questions for Biden's Presser"

You mean several asshole questions, but go on, Larry:

"Will reporters pepper him with questions related to the many scandals already brewing around this administration? Will they use their "sacred role" to "speak truth to power" and wrangle this president into the same angry, confrontational debate we saw in Trump's first press conference?"

A. No they won't because, after the most scandal ridden administration in history, so far the Biden administration has had no scandals.  Deal with it, Larry. Biden is not an angry, confrontational, stupid bully like Trump, and knows how to act like an adult.

Larry then follows with numerous questions about Hunter Biden's laptop, something which they have never produced and never demonstrated that it even exists.  And then, more lies about the border.  How clever Larry is.

Cortney O'Brien, Town Hall:  "Peter Doocy Reacts to Being Ignored at Biden's First Solo Presser"

Oh boy, that's a scandal that has legs- Biden didn't waste time giving a Fox News liar a chance to pander to his right wing audience at the press conference.

Nick Arama, Red State:  "Media Slobbers Over Biden's Press Conference Performance"

Oh boy.  Slobbers.  

Bonchie, Red State:  "Tucker Carlson Delivers a Hilarious Breakdown of Joe Biden's Presser"

Oy.  Better stick to interviewing Matt Gaetz, Tucker- someone you can relate to.

Nick Arama, Red State:  "Here Are Some of the Biden Cheat Sheets He Used During the Press Conference"

Because it is cheating to make sure that what he says is correct, rather than just shooting his mouth off with a hundred lies.

And I am going to call an end to this subject right here.  Let me point out that all of the above comes from just two of the right wing websites I follow, and there were several more articles along these lines at these sites that I didn't include.  Oh well, just this sort of meta-comment:

Stephen Green, PJ Media:  "Insanity Wrap #173: Suppose POTUS Threw a Presser and Nobody Cared?"

Well, apparently you guys cared a hell of a lot.

And of course, they haven't given up on this:

Larry O'Connor, Town Hall:  "Arrest Hunter Biden"

Their answer to Matt Gaetz- Just lie harder about Hunter Biden.  And let me remind you again, we still have absolutely no evidence that the fabled Hunter Biden laptop exists.  I won't even bother you with an account of what Hunter Biden is supposed to be arrested for.  It just never stops.

And more:

Joe Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "In October We First Reported that Hallie Biden Took Hunter Biden’s Gun and Threw It In the Trash – Now It’s Finally Making National News"

Hunter's wife threw a gun away.  Boy, that's got the makings of a scandal at least as big as Trump trying to overthrow the government.

And it's treason already:

Ted Harvey, Town Hall:  "President Biden's Border Crisis Borders on Treason"

This from a party that didn't even mind when their President actually sold the country down the river to a hostile foreign dictator.  Not one word of explanation, of course, on how the border situation borders on the Constitutional definition of treason, just more lies about what is going on down there.  I guess this is just more standard Republican projection- accusing Democrats of what Republicans actually did, to make real charges of treason seem like some gotcha game.

And then there's this massive brewing scandal:

Cassandra Fairbanks, Gateway Pundit:  "Massachusetts 8th Grade Science Teacher Outed as Member of Antifa That Berated Cops and Children at Recent Protest"

Woo...she said some bad things about cops.  Clearly far worse than trying to overthrow the government, which is all just good fun.  And on we go...

"Βiden Giving Κamala Ρresidency Οr Is Μilitary Μaking Μove? Just Found Οut About Τhis! (All Revealed)

Our politicians on both sides got away with denying we the people the president of our choice. We did not rise up. Now they can get away with whatever they want...We are living in the last of the last days! It’s almost as if the liberals are reading Bible prophecy and putting it into action. You honestly can’t make this stuff up!"

Apparently, yes you can make it up.

"New Dark Outpost: Hillary's Gitmo Adrenochrome Withdrawal...Prior to the conviction and execution of the Clintons at Guantanamo Bay for crimes against humanity, a disruptive Hillary Clinton was placed in lockdown following a series of incidents in which the former Secretary of State spat on guards, defecated on the floor of her cell, assaulted U.S. military personnel, and hurled obscenities indefatigably at staff and fellow inmates, brought on by a dramatic withdrawal from Adrenochrome.  Tonight, we bring you the horrible truth."

That evil Hillary!  The horrible truth!

"Bombshell! Pope Francis Screwing The Dutch Royal Family And The Ninth Circle Satanic Cult! Pope Francis Found Guilty Of Child Trafficking, Rape And Murder !  The Dutch royals and the Ninth Circle. Maxima had a baby with Dope Francis then sacrificed it.

The ninth circle.  Is that connected in any way to the sixth house?


Hear how sick things are going on in the Dutch royal family and Dope Francis and the ninth circle.  The Jews / Jesuits created the Ninth Circle in the sixteenth century which originated in Egypt and Babylon and it is still going strong today abducting babies and children, raping, torturing and murdering them for their Satanic rituals."

"Yesterday defendants Pope Francis Bergoglio, Catholic Jesuit Superior General Adolfo Pachon and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby were found guilty of rape, torture, murder and trafficking of children. Five judges of the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels determined that the crimes occurred as recently as 2010."

I've mentioned International Common Law Court of Justice before here at Wingnut Wrapup.  This august body seems to consist of a single lunatic named Kevin Arnett.  So, take it for a sign of how easy it is for hundreds of thousands of right wingers to be filled with the demented blather of a single person.

"The creature Prince Phillip is just a Prince and will never be King. He is 99 yrs old.

99 = 18 = R = JFK Jr...Rumour has it, the real Harry was swapped when he was very young. I can not confirm this but keep an open mind as anything is possible."

So JFK Jr. was the real Prince Harry.  Yeah, that is likely.

"Here we have Kate wearing the same dress, using the same pram from Rosemary’s Baby."

Anything is possible.  Wait a minute; not anything.  Not this crap anyway.

"Dark Outpost: Lady Di and JFK Jr. to Testify at Gitmo??"

And Elvis too.  And bigfoot if they can serve him with a subpoena.  They're all working to bring Trump back.

McAllister TV:  "Was WW2 an Adrenochrome Harvest?"

I don't think so, but what do I know?  This is possible the most pathetic effort I have ever seen by American right wingers to write out of history the actions of their Nazi counterparts.

Kurt Schlichter, Town Hall:  "Is President Asterisk’s Honeymoon Over?  That desiccated old weirdo in the White House seems to be getting slightly less unnatural media love as of late. Is it a trend?  And there seems to be a growing impatience with Raggedy Psaki and her inability to form an honest sentence.   It’s not so much that the liberals are being treated like dirt and lied to. They dig abuse in a weird, creepy way.

When Stumbles McFingerboy took his multiple headers on that tricky stairway, they rushed to his rickety defense."

Today's specimen of Republican projection of their own faults on Democrats.  And we haven't even gotten to Matt Gaetz and exactly how much adrenochrome he has consumed. 

Kevin Grieve, Town Hall:  "The Left’s Legacy – Subjugation, Misery, and Death"

Don't think we need to check that one out any further.

Rebecca Downs, Town Hall:  "President Trump Tells Judge Jeanine: 'I Owe It to Great People' of Border Patrol to Go to Southern Border"

That-s EX President Trump, lady, and the only thing he owes the Great People of this country (other than the thousands he actually screwed out of real money) is to go to hell.  Unless it's worth the chance that he will get hit on the head by a brick of heroin thrown over the wall.

Nick Arama, Red State:  "Trump Exercises His Classic, Acerbic Wit to Ask a Great Question About the Durham Investigation"

And what is this classic example of acerbic wit?

"Where's Durham? Is he a living, breathing human being? Will there ever be a Durham report?"

Just curious, but what could be described as witty about this obsessed loser still trying, almost five months after the election, to bully someone into producing a lying report about the people who tried to bring Trump to justice?  What an asshole.

"Ah, there’s only one Trump. Twitter isn’t quite the same without that acerbic wit."

God, what a pathetic toady you are, Nick.

And of course, this was inevitable:

"Deep State, C.I.A., DoJ, Military Intel & Democrat Party Conspire to Frame Rep. Gaetz to Extort His Wealthy Father for $25 MIL and Smear the Brave Florida Congressman to End His Political Career...HUGE SCANDAL! EXTORTIONGATE

This sordid tale shows just how determined the Democrats are to get rid of the most conservative members in the US House of Representatives, especially those who are avid Trump supporters.

This complex criminal conspiracy carried out by the Biden Administration, Democrat Party, Deep State and U.S. Military Intelligence Community is as bad as it gets … especially because they got caught.

Although the facts are still being slowly disclosed, the rough outline of this shocking case of extraordinary corruption and criminality at the highest echelons of the US government clearly indicates an extraordinarily convoluted plot to take down a very conservative, Trump-supporting U.S. Congressman.  the DEMs and Deep State were out to get Gaetz and remove him from the Congress—FOREVER!

So, what did they all do: they colluded to hatch a plot so brazen, so reckless, so desperate that it smacks of the same chutzpah that the Democrats possessed to execute the epic 2020 election heist."

Right.  That makes sense.

"Dark Outpost: Brennan Ordered Trump Assassination

Dark Outpost has learned exclusively that an attempted assassination against Donald Trump at his estate at Mar-a-Lago was plotted and ordered by former CIA Director John Brennan, who is currently serving life in prison at Guantanamo Bay. And…Emanuel Blue continues his discussion on the illusion of a stimulus and the legislation Barack Obama signed that allows the United States government to use propaganda against its citizens.

Plus…Dr. James Fetzer analyzes a Colorado journalist’s video which proves the Boulder shooting incident was a false flag. Leave the world you think you know behind and join us at the Dark Outpost!"

Leave the world you know behind, indeed.

"Fedex Shipping Body Bags Across America! Whistleblower Reveals Extermination Plan For Rounding Up Patriots, Christians & Intellectuals! Must See So You Don’t End Up In One Of Those Fedex Shipped Body Bags!! Two Thirds Of All Caucasians Are Prophesied To Perish!"

Of course you already guessed that this is a plot by the evil Jews.  They always did control the body bag business.  And while we are on the subject of the Jews:

"Bombshell! Washington Insider Confirms that Donald Trump Is A Jew And Then Immediately Gets Fired! Many Americans Have Been Deceived Worshipping A Jew!"

Maybe the real problem is people worshipping a loathsome criminal, not his religion.  This story, by the way, is from some jerks who call themselves "Know More News."  More what?  And just in case you wondered, this video also claims that Donald Trump believes that Jared Kushner is the messiah.  What a load of crap- we all know that if Donald Trump believes anyone is the messiah it is himself.  I don't recommend listening to the video that this comes from, but I will tell you that a large part of it consists of an interview with a woman with an absolutely hilarious sitcom Jewish accent.

Rebecca Downs, Town Hall:  "Lara and Donald Trump Interview Goes On, No Thanks to Facebook and Instagram"

Yes, but it went almost unnoticed in the sane world, thanks to Facebook and Instagram.  

Katie Pavlich, Town Hall:  "Another Round of Child Sex Offenders Caught at the Border"

And another one in the Republican party.  Katie forgot to expend her anger on him.   By the way, this "round" of child sex offenders consists of a story about one person.  I guess it's a "round" in the same sense that a bullet is a round of ammunition.

Leah Barkoukis, Town Hall:  "Biden's Dog Has Second Biting Incident in Month"

Well, they've got to write about something, I guess.  Any chance he bit Matt Gaetz?

Joe Hoft, Gateway Pundit:  "HUGE BREAKING NEWS: Arizona Senate Republicans Courageously Announce Team Who Will Perform Maricopa County Election Audit and It’s Good News for America!  The Republican Senate in Arizona made the courageous decision patriots around the country have been hoping for.  These Republicans decided upon the team who will be performing the upcoming audit in Maricopa County and it’s an excellent list of entities."

Excellent.  Of course, you may want to consider this story:

"Arizona Senate hires a ‘Stop the Steal’ advocate to lead 2020 election audit...The audit team that Senate President Karen Fann selected to examine the 2020 general election in Maricopa County will be led by a company owned by an advocate of the “Stop the Steal” movement who repeatedly alleged on social media that the election was rigged against former President Donald Trump."

That owner would be:

"Doug Logan, who has been an active promoter of baseless conspiracy theories alleging widespread election fraud last year, including in Arizona.

“I’m tired of hearing people say there was no fraud. It happened, it’s real, and people better get wise fast,” read a tweet from a since-suspended account that Logan retweeted on Dec. 31. "

Well, that should produce a fair recount. The guy is also a big QAnon supporter and has pushed all sorts of QAnon theories.  A "courageous" choice indeed.  Lots more at the link above; check it out.

Brad Slager, Town Hall:  "The New Reason for Companies to Rethink Virtue Signaling -- Georgia Considers Yanking Tax Breaks from Companies Opposing the New Voting Laws"

Damaging companies for refusing to capitulate to fascism.  Seems to me to be a good reason for them to get the hell out of Georgia. 

And let's just end here with the inevitable about the ship stuck in the Suez canal:

"Over a thousand trafficked children and dead bodies have been rescued out of shipping containers in the Suez Canal by US Navy Seals. Sources say that as of this writing, children were still being rescued and bodies discovered in Evergreen’s 18,000+ containers. The containers were on an Evergreen Corporation ship that blocked the Canal from Tues. 23 March to Mon 29 March, causing billions in lost revenue to shipping companies internationally.

The Seals also found Weapons of Mass Destruction on the six story high vessel – which were believed destined to start a war in the Middle East.  The Japanese-owned, Taiwanese-operated ship of Evergreen Corporation was actually co-owned by Walmart and the Clinton Foundation – known for it’s international child trafficking ring. The children were said ordered out of magazines like Wayfair by pedophiles who paid big bucks for certain abused children."

And if you think that just might be true, let me tell you that according to one site I have seen, the ship's captain was none other than Monica Lewinsky!  That famous nautical expert Monica Lewinsky!  And this claim was backed up by a picture of Monica Lewinsky!  A real picture of Monica Lewinsky.  Not in a maritime uniform, or on the bridge of any ship, but still, who needs more proof than that?

Well, I think that's as loony as we can get today.  See you soon.
