It is difficult to understand...


but a third of the people in America want this sociopath to be POTUS again. In my, and many others', lifetime we never, never imagined a person as depraved as Trump would become the representative of the American people, and yet he did. And even when Americans saw his corruption, perversion, and degradation of that office, they decided that they wanted more.

I don't recognize America anymore.

 Cameron is against gay marriage and believes homosexuality is hurting the underpinnings of Western society. 

 He doesn’t hate anyone, he just believes differently than most of the Left and some churches and synagogues. So he MUST be censored and threatened?"

"He doesn't hate anyone..."

Right. Cameron's just telling his audience that "homosexuality is hurting the underpinnings of Western society!"

That's a pretty damning and dangerous statement! And the blogger thinks that's just "believing differently?"

Weak-minded individuals reading that would immediately see it as a threat to their well-being and, who knows, maybe want to do something -- anything -- about saving Western civilization from the gays who are "hurting the underpinning of Western society!" 

The blogger appears to have sympathy for Cameron's point of view, and apparently feels it is unfair for anyone to consider his opinion as hateful, which, of course, it actually is.

Cameron believes it is homosexuality that threatens Western society! Not greed, mendacity, wars of aggression, poverty, pandemics, climate change, etc. Nope. It's the gays! And Cameron's hateful opinion stigmatizes a group of human beings who have, over millennia, contributed some of the world's greatest literature, music, art, and science.

That's not publishing a "different opinion." What Cameron is doing is vilifying an entire group of human beings, our brothers and sisters, blaming them for hurting Western society. That is the very definition of "hateful" because it has no basis in fact. His statement is a reflection of his own despicable bigotry, and every person of good will should condemn it.

It wasn't that long ago in Germany when the Nazis made these sorts of statements about Jews, homosexuals, and other minorities, which made it easy for the state to dispose of these people and save Germany from perceived threats to its purity.  Yet the blogger has empathy for poor Kirk Cameron (I've never heard of this guy), who singles out the gay community as a THREAT to Western society?

What in hell does that blogger think "THREAT" means? What kind of ideas will the weak-minded folks who listen to Fox News' lies get from this report?

Let me remind everyone:  Fox New (FAUX NOOZ) has been exposed in the Dominion lawsuit as knowingly and deliberately broadcasting lies about the 2020 election. FAUX NOOZ LIED AND LIED AND LIED. FAUX NOOZ knew Trump lost, but for monetary reasons kept telling their viewers a dirty dangerous LIE!

It's amazing to understand that these facts about FAUX NOOZ are indisputable -- Murdoch himself admitted to Fox promoting Trump's Big Lie for money -- yet people like the blogger above, remain loyal consumers of Fox's lies, their disinformation, and propaganda -- anti-gay rubbish -- that they find on that deplorable pile of crap called Fox News.

The blogger who posted Cameron's anti-gay propaganda hasn't the ability to see that posting Cameron's opinion -- and that's what it is; it is his hateful opinion, not a fact, -- isolates and endangers the gay community as a threat to Western civilization.

My challenge to that blogger would be this: Substitute "Jews," for "homosexuality," in Cameron's statement, and test it to see if, as the blogger who posted it believes, it is "just believing differently than most of the Left and some churches and synagogues."

IMO, it is people like that blogger who give voice and legitimacy to bigotry and hate. Shame on all who do so.

Let’s believe them.

If there’s one axiom everyone should know and understand in politics, it’s this…

Believe what they say.

Period. Full Stop.

Believe what they say.

We should believe Florida Governor Ron DeSantis when he says what is happening in Ukraine was not a full scale invasion by Russia, but rather, a simple “territorial dispute”. Forget the the video and pictures you’ve seen of Russian soldiers and missiles destroying lives and buildings hundreds of miles from the Ukraine/Russia border.

The millions of people in Ukraine who have been displaced, killed and left homeless by the year long Russian attacks are not dying as a result of a war foisted on them by an invading aggressor. Instead, according to the Florida governor and potential US presidential candidate DeSantis, all of that mayhem and destruction is simply a territorial dispute.    

We should believe him, pure and simple.

Anyone who cannot see that what he said was both inaccurate and wrong should never be anywhere near a command position of the US military. Either Governor Desantis is woefully uninformed, intentionally stupid or lying to win the votes of a small minority of the GOP base.

Either way, he has shown himself to be an unqualified and unserious candidate to be President of the United States.

But there’s more. As there always is.

Recently former President Trump stated…

“The State Department, the defense bureaucracy, the intelligence services, and all of the rest need to be completely overhauled and reconstituted to fire the Deep Staters and put America first.” 

And this…

“…the greatest threat to Western civilization today is not Russia… it is probably, more than anything else, ourselves and some of the horrible, USA-hating people that represent us.”

We need to believe the former president. He wants to decimate the the Defense, State and other US departments built to defend us in the face of foreign aggression. But not only that, there’s another kernel within his statement many have missed.

He wants to replace those people he deems insufficiently “America First” with his people. The best people as he boasted in his first presidential campaign. A cursory review of how this might work out is to look at the “best” people Trump hired in his first campaign and administration.

Six of those best people have been indicted on 51 counts of, among other charges, lying under oath, money laundering, tax fraud, witness tampering and working as a foreign agent.

The former president has shown himself to be more interested in personal loyalty than in hiring the “best” people. When he says we should reconstitute the entity of the US defense system, ultimately pull back from NATO and support Russian Dictatorial President Vladimir Putin, we should believe him.  

We should also believe him when he says the greatest threat to the US are people who essentially disagree with him. People like you, me and your parents. Fellow Americans. In the eyes of Donald Trump, according to his own statements, he believes his fellow American citizens, those with whom he disagrees, are a bigger threat to America than Vladimir Putin.

Like Governor DeSantis, Trump should also not be allowed anywhere near 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. His unseriousness about our defense departments and his whole scale dismissal of the love millions of Americans have for this country rightly disqualify him.

In closing, I am not saying we cannot improve our defense and state departments. Everything from procurement to spending should be considered. As should our inclination to solve all the world’s problems with military force. Jesse Jackson in his 1988 presidential run advocated for reforming how much the US should fund security of Europe, and by extension, NATO. Former President Trump rightly worked to reset or open relations with North Korea.

The US is not, nor should it be on any unreversible path.

But the inability or unwillingness of both Governor DeSantis and former President Trump to seriously address these issues, as evidenced by their actual words, shows that both of them are unqualified to be President of the United States of America.

We should believe them.

By the way…. I don’t understand why paying off Stormy Daniels was problematic… even if he DID (and the checks Cohen has shared make it look BAD)…what man in public life hasn’t? 

And, if it’s because it blocked the fact that he’d had an affair before the 2016 election, HOW IS THAT DIFFERENT THAN THE MEDIA HIDING THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP INFORMATION BEFORE THE ELECTION OF BIDEN… so people wouldn’t know he was a corrupt monster?

Here's the video where she shows off her ignorance.

"Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn’t believe Putin plans to invade Europe. She calls it a lie. 

Greene: 'I’ve never seen Putin actually show in any detail his plans to invade Europe. No one has shown me that. So I don’t believe the lies that I’m being told about this.' ”

Who are the geniuses on her staff who let her loose to say such stupid things in front of the country and all the world? 

This woman was sworn in as the pro-tempore Speaker of the House recently, and America is shamed by her presence -- or maybe not. 

Maybe she's exactly the correct representative of the people who voted for her: smugly ignorant and proud of it.

To MT Greene: "It's is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth a remove all doubt."

She's the nincompoopery gift that keeps on giving:

There were 16 bank failures between 2017 and 2020.

SVB Bank is the first to collapse since Biden took office. 

"...[S]ourced data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), which reports that eight banks failed in 2017, four in 2019 and four in 2020. 

 The eight banks that failed in 2017 were: the Washington Federal Bank for Savings, Chicago, Illinois; The Farmers and Merchants State Bank of Argonia, Argonia, Kansas; Fayette County Bank, Saint Elmo, Illinois; Guaranty Bank, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; First NBC Bank, New Orleans, Louisiana; Proficio Bank, Cottonwood Heights, Utah; Seaway Bank and Trust Company, Chicago, Illinois; and Harvest Community Bank, Pennsville, New Jersey. 

 In 2019, the four banks that collapsed were: City National Bank of New Jersey, Newark, New Jersey; Resolute Bank, Maumee, Ohio; Louisa Community Bank, Louisa, Kentucky; and the Enloe State Bank, Cooper, Texas. 

 The quartet of banks that failed in 2020 were: Almena State Bank, Almena, Kansas; First City Bank of Florida, Fort Walton Beach, Florida; The First State Bank, Barboursville, West Virginia; and Ericson State Bank, Ericson, Nebraska.


This guy --


Ron DeSantis @GovRonDeSantis 

It is not "sinful" to prohibit the mutilation of minors. It is not acceptable for the federal government to mandate that procedures like sex change operations be allowed for kids. 


“Mandate they be allowed?" What incredible double speak. 

No Gov. DeSantis, it’s called “limited government” (isn't that what Libertarians and Trumpublicans are all about? -- allowing parents and children to make the decisions that work best for themselves. 

Parents, children, and their doctors should be making the decision, not politicians seeking to win over Trump's MAGA voters. 

The federal government DOES NOT MANDATE any medical procedures, including sex change operations, for children. 

Ron DeSantis should check his brain before opening his mouth on issues he knows nothing about.

"DeSantis declared that Russia’s brutal and unjustified war of aggression against a sovereign Ukraine is actually “a territorial dispute between Ukraine and Russia” and that protecting Ukraine is not a “vital” national interest of the United States."


"DeSantis, like Putin apologist Trump, might have misjudged the party whose nomination he he might seek. The majority of Americans, more than 70 percent, favor our role in the defense of Ukraine, and more than 90 percent have a negative view of Russia."

More pandering to the MAGA crowd.

And here's the little angry Trump wannabe pursuing red meat issues to get the MAGA vote:

DeSantis administration revokes Hyatt Regency Miami alcohol license after it hosted 'A Drag Queen Christmas' 

The minors were allowed in as long as they were accompanied by an adult. IOW, the minors were there due to PARENTAL DISCRETION -- the parents made the choice, not the state.  AFAIK, no children have been injured or killed watching a drag queen performance.
Definition of the word "discretion:"  "The freedom to decide what should be done in a particular situation."

DeSantis refers to Florida as "Free Florida." LOL!

No other peer country has that distinction. 

And Americans are okay with that.

(PS. Drag queen shows are not included in the causes of childhood and teen death rates, yet MAGA governors are falling over themselves writing legislation to ban them.  We are a stupid country.)

Tucker Carlson seen here with Florida man he said he "passionately hates."



pandered to Trump's cultists. 

Unimaginable hypocrisy and backstabbing:

"As votes were being counted in the 2020 presidential election, Mr. Carlson texted with his producer, Alex Pfeiffer, fretting about viewers turning away from Fox News after the network called Arizona for President Biden. 

 Alex Pfeiffer: Trump has a pretty low rate at success in his business ventures. 

 Tucker Carlson: That’s for sure. All of them fail. What he’s good at is destroying things. He’s the undisputed world champion of that."

"A staff member texted Mr. Carlson to say they’d heard Mr. Trump was planning not to attend the inauguration, an important symbol of the peaceful transfer of power. 

Carlson: I’d heard that about the inauguration. Hard to believe. So destructive. 

 Carlson: It’s disgusting. I’m trying to look away."

"Mr. Carlson texts with the Fox News host Laura Ingraham about Sidney Powell, a lawyer for Mr. Trump and one of the biggest promoters of the unfounded election fraud claims. 

Carlson: I had to try to make the WH disavow her, which they obviously should have done long before. 

Laura Ingraham: No serious lawyer could believe what they were saying. 

Carlson: But they said nothing in public. Pretty disgusting. And now Trump, I learned this morning, is sitting back and letting them lose the senate. He doesn’t care. I care."


Carlson and his network have spent years pumping utter poison into our body politic. They have amplified the extremism and utter lies of Donald Trump and his acolytes and have done incalculable damage to our society, our public discourse, and our democracy. 

I hope the Dominion lawsuit ruins them all.

As you watch the Trumpers try to rewrite history and pretend that the attack on the US Capitol was only "peaceful protestors,"  never forget this fact about the scoundrel who's pushing this outrageously false narrative:

You Literally Can't Believe The Facts Tucker Carlson Tells You. So Say Fox's Lawyers

"Just read U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil's opinion, leaning heavily on the arguments of Fox's lawyers: 

The "'general tenor' of the show should then inform a viewer that [Carlson] is not 'stating actual facts' about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in 'exaggeration' and 'non-literal commentary.' "

Fox News won a court case by 'persuasively' arguing that no 'reasonable viewer' takes Tucker Carlson seriously

(Anyone who believes what Carlson spews is a fool.)

h/t to Infidel753:

Carlson and the other liars @Fox News and Speaker McCarthy want you to disbelieve what you saw with your own eyes on January 6, 2021, and to forget what McCarthy himself said about the attack by Trump's thugs on that terrible day:

Monday, March 6, 2023


This is alarming. But Congress and the Executive branch of government seem not to care about this terrible situation.

Republicans are more interested in legislation to stop drag queens from performing and in passing draconian laws that interfere with girls and women's reproductive health than addressing this tragedy.

President Biden has said he wants to ban AR-15s (which were banned in the past until former President George W. Bush let the ban lapse). But the problem is not just AR-15s, but the fact that there are so many guns in circulation in this country, and so many guns available means more gun deaths by accident, suicide, and homicide. That's just a fact.

The Data on Kids and Gun Violence Firearms are the leading cause of death for children and teens (ages 1 to 19) in the United States. 

Every year, 19,000 children and teens are shot and killed or wounded and approximately 3 million are exposed to gun violence. 

Children and teens in the U.S. are impacted by gun violence in all its forms. 

Researchers who study gun violence say that it is difficult to explain exactly why gun deaths among children have risen so quickly, but most emphasize that the increased availability of guns — especially handguns, which tend to be used in homicides and suicides and also tend to be stored less safely than some other types of guns — has most likely played a role. 

What is clear is that the United States is an extreme outlier when it comes to gun fatalities among children. When researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation recently compared a set of similarly large and wealthy nations, they found that among this group, the United States accounted for 46 percent of the child population but 97 percent of all child gun deaths.

"...road injuries, drowning, and lower respiratory infections."

66% of guns recovered in crime scenes in Chicago come from states with weak gun laws. 
45% in California and  81% in New York are trafficked from places like Florida. 

 Also, the majority of guns recovered or confiscated in Mexico, are from the US.

Florida bill would require bloggers who write about governor to register with the state

(Brought to Floridians by "Small Government GOP" and Ron Der Santis.)

It’s not just Der Santis that bloggers must register to write about, it's the lieutenant governor, a cabinet officer, or any member of the Florida legislature.  People will still be allowed to write their blogs, they just have to register within five days of submitting the contents of it.

Let me repeat that: The Florida legislature (with Der Santis's input, I'm sure) want bloggers to register with the government before writing about the top officers of Florida's government.

This sounds awfully familiar. Where have I read about this intimidating boot-on-one's-neck sort of thing? Something to do with WWII. Yeah. That's it.

I wonder how this will all play out in Der Santis's unFree Floriduh. 

Rick Wilson:  "Requiring people to register with the Florida government in order to -- checks notes -- express opinions online or report on Prince Ronald the Delicate and other Florida officials seems...not super-Constitutional."

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Florida Sen. Jason Brodeur (R-Lake Mary) wants bloggers who write about Gov. Ron DeSantis, Attorney General Ashley Moody, and other members of the Florida executive cabinet or legislature to register with the state or face fines. Brodeur’s proposal, Senate Bill 1316: Information Dissemination, would require any blogger writing about government officials to register with the Florida Office of Legislative Services or the Commission on Ethics.

Also, this -- a Florida legislator wants to get rid of the Democratic Party of Florida through legislation.

This is your insane GQP at work. 

Yet, if you read any of the Libertarian/Trumpian blogs, they continue to claim that it's the Democrats that are destroying the country with their insane ideas.

They refuse to see what's happening right in front of their noses.

Welcome to DeSantistan


This isn't an exaggeration; it's real.

I read conservative/libertarian blogs around the web, and many of them claim it is Liberals/Democrats who want to control your lives and impose their "woke" ideology on everyone.

None of those bloggers are reporting this (I wonder why). 

This should be every Libertarian's nightmare. I'm not sure about the current Trumpublicans, since it's been my observation that they eagerly embrace and admire authoritarians. This may be popular in Florida, but people in other states who cherish democracy and do NOT want some power-tripping governor telling them what to think, say, and see DO NOT embrace DeSantis's authoritarian nightmare:

What DeSantis is setting up in Florida is the very definition of an authoritarian government -- deciding what everyone under its boot should read, see, hear, and think.

It is most definitely NOT American. You can go to places like Hungary, Iran, and Afghanistan to see how DeSantis's plan for Florida will work out:


Right-wing board to clamp down on “woke ideology” in cartoons.

"Last year, after Disney had the temerity to issue a statement opposing one of his prized legislative initiatives, Ron DeSantis punished the company by removing its self-governing status. (DeSantis justified the maneuver as a removal of unjustified privileges, but he had not previously opposed Disney’s status and made little attempt to disguise its nakedly retaliatory nature). 

 On Monday, he took matters much further. DeSantis appointed a board to oversee Disney. The Central Florida Tourism Oversight District is stacked with DeSantis cronies, including Bridget Ziegler, a proponent of his education policies; Ron Peri, who heads the Christian ministry the Gathering USA; and Michael Sasso, president of the Federalist Society’s Orlando chapter. 

 While the board handles infrastructure and maintenance, DeSantis boasted that it could use its leverage to force Disney to stop “trying to inject woke ideology” on children. 

 “When you lose your way, you’ve got to have people that are going to tell you the truth,” DeSantis proclaimed. “So we hope they can get back on. But I think all of these board members very much would like to see the type of entertainment that all families can appreciate.” 

 It is worth pausing a moment to grasp the full breadth of what is going on here. First, DeSantis established the principle that he can and will use the power of the state to punish private firms that exercise their First Amendment right to criticize his positions. Now he is promising to continue exerting state power to pressure the firm to produce content that comports with his own ideological agenda.

Whether he is successful remains to be seen. But a few things ought to be clear. First, DeSantis’s treatment of Disney is not a one-off but a centerpiece of his legacy in Florida. He has repeatedly invoked the episode in his speeches, and his allies have held it up as evidence of his strength and dominance. The Murdoch media empire, which is functionally an arm of the DeSantis campaign, highlighted the Disney conquest in a New York Post front page and a Fox & Friends segment and DeSantis touted his move in a Wall Street Journal op-ed. 

 Second, DeSantis’s authoritarian methods have met with vanishingly little resistance within his party. The only detectable Republican pushback has come from New Hampshire governor Chris Sununu, who warned, “Look, Ron’s a very good governor. But I’m just trying to remind folks what we are at our core. And if we’re trying to beat the Democrats at being big-government authoritarians, remember what’s going to happen. Eventually, they’ll have power … and then they’ll start penalizing conservative businesses and conservative nonprofits and conservative ideas.” (Of course, this warning holds only if Republicans believe they will have to relinquish power. If DeSantis can truly follow the example of Viktor Orbán, losing power becomes only a theoretical risk.) 

 And third, DeSantis has been very explicit about his belief that he sees his methods in Florida as a blueprint for a national agenda. So there is every reason to believe that, if elected president, DeSantis would use government power to force both public and private institutions to toe his line. Speaking out against him, or even producing content he disapproves of, would become a financially risky proposition. 

 Part of what makes DeSantis so dangerous is that Donald Trump created a very defined idea of authoritarianism in the minds of his critics. His refusal to accept the 2020 presidential-election results was indeed a dangerous attack on democratic legitimacy — but this especially notorious episode has overshadowed his other efforts to abuse state power. Trump wielded federal regulations to punish the owners of the Washington Post and CNN for coverage he disapproved of and used diplomatic leverage to extort Ukraine into smearing his political rival. Republicans either supported or ignored these abuses of power. 

 To whatever extent they have principled objections to authoritarianism, those objections are limited almost entirely to fomenting a violent mob to overturn an election. And while inciting an insurrection is extremely dangerous, it hardly exhausts the scope of illiberal tools available to a sufficiently ruthless executive. 

 Damon Linker recently criticized liberals for unfairly calling DeSantis as bad as Trump. Linker’s prediction that a second Trump administration would be more dangerous than a first DeSantis administration might be correct. But it’s hard for me to understand how he can state this so confidently when he acknowledges DeSantis’s illiberal intentions and lack of democratic scruples. Comparing the relative evils of two authoritarian-minded leaders seems to be mainly an exercise in guesswork. 

 A year ago, I wrote a long profile of DeSantis, in which his deep-rooted distrust of liberal democracy was a major theme. Last fall, I attended the National Conservatism Conference, where the attendees laid out rather plainly their ambition to turn DeSantis into a model for a ruthless, illiberal party that would use the organs of the state to crush its enemies. Since those pieces appeared, DeSantis’s actions have made me more, not less, concerned. Whether DeSantis would actually do more damage to American democracy in office than Trump could remains hard to say. Perhaps, perhaps not. But we should recognize that he is not putting himself forward as a critic of Trump’s authoritarianism. He is promising, on the contrary, to exceed it.

Murdoch Acknowledges Fox News Hosts Endorsed Election Fraud Falsehoods 

"Rupert Murdoch, the conservative media mogul, spoke under oath last month in a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox by Dominion Voting Systems." 


"On Jan. 5, 2021, the day before the attack at the Capitol, Mr. Murdoch and Suzanne Scott, the chief executive of Fox News Media, talked about whether Mr. Hannity and his fellow prime-time hosts, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, should make it clear to viewers that Mr. Biden had won the election. Mr. Murdoch said in his deposition that he had hoped such a statement 'would go a long way to stop the Trump myth that the election was stolen. ' ”



Rupert Murdoch himself knew there was no election fraud and that Trump's Big Lie was being spread on Fox News for ratings and the bottom line.

Fox knew.

But Murdoch, Hannity, Carlson, Ingraham, Dobbs, Pirro, and Bartiromo all kept the lying going because they also knew how easy it is to deceive their gullible viewers. And boy did those viewers eat up The Big Lie, hook, line, and sinker.

How sad and frightening it is to realize that millions and millions of Americans can be fed disinformation and become true believers of destructive and malicious lies -- lies that led to the attack on the US Capitol for the purpose of overthrowing an election, disenfranchising voters, and re-installing a twice-impeached, corrupt, malignant narcissist in the presidency.

Brian Krassenstein
BREAKING: A brand new court filing in the Fox News / Dominion Case shows Rupert Murdoch admitting that Fox News, not only hosted guests which lied about the election but they endorsed a "false notion of a stolen election." Yes, Jim Acosta is 100% right in that Fox News is a “bullsh!t factory". In the newly released documents, Murdoch is found agreeing that he saw "material in support of" Fox Hosts taking part in endorsing the lies about the 2020 election. The filings also show that even Paul Ryan, a board member of Fox Corp., told Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch that "Fox News should not be spreading conspiracy theories" and should "stop spouting election lies." Things are looking INCREDIBLY bleak for Fox News, but very positive for the American people!
