Have you wondered why Russian collusion isn't one of the articles of impeachment?

It's supposed to be the underlying crime... right?

Don't hurt yourself.

Now, where were we? Oh yeah... just in case things weren't absurd enough already, here's more of the craziness Trump's desperate apologists are trafficking in:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/lou-dobbs-doj-ig-report-031705197.html

(just an aside: Lou Dobb's hair changes color three times a week, but never to a color that actually appears in nature. Smart TVs just shrug and give up trying to color-balance that rat-pelt he's perched on his pumpkin)


Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs tore into the Justice Department’s top watchdog on Monday night, calling DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the Russia probe a “whitewash” while claiming it was proof that the “Deep State” controlled the government.

While some at Fox attempted to toss a pro-Trump spin on Horowitz’s finding that there was no political bias and the FBI had sufficient evidence to launch an investigation into Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, Dobbs began his show on Monday by immediately dismissing the report as “long-delayed and hardly worth the wait.”

“After 621 days investigating some of the clearest abuses of power by the Obama-era intelligence agency, the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz declared he was unable to find any political bias behind the surveillance of the 2016 Trump campaign,” Dobbs, an informal adviser to Trump, groused.

“All this is more evidence of the ‘radical Dimms’ and the Deep State’s awesome control of our permanent bureaucracy of our federal government,” he added.

Noting that Attorney General William Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham—who is investigating the origins of the Russia probe—both issued statements disagreeing with Horowitz’s findings, Dobbs insisted that Durham was putting “the Deep State on notice.”

Moments later, speaking to Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton, Dobbs agreed with his guest’s assessment that Horowitz accepted the FBI’s “bureaucratic excuses for targeting the President of the United State and a presidential candidate.”

“We have an inspector general who should be a countervailing influence within the Justice Department and the FBI,” Dobbs grumbled. “Who should be bringing accountability to this corrupt cabal of agents and officials of both the FBI and the Justice Department. Instead what we have got here, in 434 pages without exception, is a whitewash.”


This is why it's a waste of time to try to talk sense to these people. If something doesn't come out the way they want it, they don't take that as proof that they were wrong... they take it that the conspiracy they think is against them is even deeper than they thought. Get results you don't like? Dismiss it as a "whitewash." Never accept anything that doesn't fit the cult's narrative. And do it while -- hilariously -- talking about "empiricism."

They operate by the exact opposite of the scientific method. They make up their minds first what the outcome is, and then they dismiss anything that contradicts it, and quadruple-magnify anything that can in any way be twisted to support it.

That's why you hear the same shit over and over from 'em. Trump making a million excuses for Putin and Kim and the Saudis is a "non-story" that they will never address, while we're gonna hear Obama's "I'll have more leverage after the election" eight million times, even though that's a concocted "scandal" since no leader with any sense starts making deals they might not be in office to follow through on. But it's the closest thing they have, so, they cling to it like it means somethin'. You'll never hear them admit that the asshole they elected lies 40 times a day, but you'll get endless replays of "if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor" over and over again (even though that wasn't a lie as much as a mistake, and then only in about 5% of cases). Instead of admitting that, yeah, Trump tried to pressure the Ukraine to investigate his political rivals, you'll hear horseshit about Benghazi (already investigated multiple times, from people who actually showed up to answer the questions, and was proven to be nothin') or Uranium One (which is also bullshit) or whatever. You name the molehill and these assclowns will construct a ski-lift next to it.

Everything's a dodge, everything's a "conspiracy," actual facts are just part of a plot against 'em. They're so persecuuuuted! By snnnoooowflaaaaakes! Very Happy

It's not news, it's church. You have to beliiiieevvvve, brotha! Don't let the devil fool you with fossil evidence and such, that's just there to test your faith!

Lou Dobbs doesn't even try anymore. He knows what kind of people he's dealing with, so... why make the effort? Pigs like slop. All you gotta do is hurl it. They'll believe whatever they're told, so why waste the time even trying to make it look good? You can't embarrass 'em, you can't insult their intelligence. And they're not gonna read the report for themselves... or anything else, for that matter. Just tell 'em lies, it's safe to do so.

What's left of the Republican party has reached peak stupidity. It's kind of alarming, if you've been overestimating 'em. It'd be hilarious, if not for the violence these morons will probably indulge in when they're out of all other options and see the world moving on despite them. Because they're never going to be able to admit they're the low side of the bell curve and got fooled by a corrupt clown that the rest of the country saw right through. For some unjustifiable reason, they have "pride." In what, no one knows. Rolling Eyes

#MattGaetzIsATool Trends Big-time After He Announces Ethics Complaint Against Pelosi

The tool Matt Gaetz thinks he will file an ethics complaint against Nancy Pelosi for tearing up Trump's pathetic SOTU speech.
By Walter Einenkel

On Thursday morning, Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida announced that he had filed an ethics complaint against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for ripping up her copy of Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. It’s predictable and arguably exactly what Pelosi was expecting, with Gaetz saving network pundits from hours of bad takes on the actual contents of the speech. Gaetz is acting out one of the many theatrical displays of fealty that Republican hacks will be performing for their fearful and corrupt leader. It’s very on-brand for the Republican Party: conducting a witch hunt against a woman, wasting American taxpayer money, and not doing their actual jobs as legislators.

Gaetz is a special kind of craven, though, as he combines the condescension of Ted Cruz with the piss-poor intellect of Louie Gohmert. This is a man who has in the past tried to intimidate witnesses and has had his own run-ins with the law, all issues of ethics.

After the announcement of the ethics complaint, #MattGaetzIsATool went viral on Twitter.

Because there is video of every hypocritical moment in these many Republican tools’ lives, here’s a reminder of the kind of hypocritical, two-inch-deep politician Matt Gaetz is.

Matt Gaetz gets obliterated after going full ‘Florida Man’ with racist, uninformed coronavirus tweet

There are all kinds of issues one might have with the coronavirus emergency relief bill. However, one of those issues is obviously not going to be earmarking money to go to medical facilities that are dealing directly with COVID-19 cases. But that is exactly what Florida Man Matt Gaetz did on Wednesday, when the congressman decided to try and score some racist dogwhistle points with fellow faux-fiscal conservatives.

“Education is important- but a $13 million check to Howard does not belong in COVID-19 relief.” Attacking a prestigious HBCU is the kind of racism that bigots like Gaetz consider a salient point.

President Trump taking extraordinary steps to protect Americans during crisis | Gaetz
Matt Gaetz, Guest columnistPublished 1:13 p.m. CT April 9, 2020 | Updated 3:20 p.m. CT April 9, 2020

Since the novel coronavirus emerged in China, President Trump and his administration have taken extraordinary steps to protect the American people from COVID-19 and harness the power of public-private partnerships to combat the pandemic.

However, the mainstream media and liberal Democrats have taken no pause in their efforts to tear down our president, even as his early actions were credited with significantly curbing the coronavirus in the United States and saving American lives. While a global pandemic has not lessened Democrats’ zeal to slander and criticize President Trump, it’s time the American people know the facts about how the Trump Administration is fighting for them.

As the spread of coronavirus became evident throughout China and other countries, President Trump instituted a travel ban to curtail the virus’s spread into, and within, the United States. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the travel ban put the U.S. “ahead of the curve,” adding there is “no question” there would be more U.S. cases of coronavirus if President Trump had not taken this critical step. There is no doubt, however, that had President Trump not instituted this travel ban, he would be criticized for not acting quickly enough by the very same people who initially condemned the ban.

When efforts to combat coronavirus began, 2,539 coronavirus tests were being administered daily. That number has grown exponentially, with over 125,000 tests currently being conducted daily. President Trump’s task force to deliver personal protective equipment to the American people, codenamed “Project Airbridge,” has completed 11 flights across the country, carrying 90 million items of personal protective equipment to Americans and communities in need. Several more of these flights are scheduled to deliver more than 300 million items of personal protective equipment across the country in the coming weeks.

The president has been committed to providing for easier access to coronavirus testing. Working with the Trump Administration, health insurance companies like UnitedHealth, Anthem, and Blue Cross and Blue Shield have agreed to waive co-pays for coronavirus tests. The coronavirus funding bill negotiated by the administration and signed by the president will make coronavirus testing free for all Americans, regardless of their insurance coverage. The White House is also working closely with the Food and Drug Administration to grant emergency approval for promising new drugs to treat the coronavirus.


Two weeks after President Trump asked Congress to pass an $8 billion emergency funding bill, he signed the CARES Act into law, delivering much-needed assistance to Americans across the country who are struggling financially. The stimulus package provided direct financial support to the American people, billions in aid to hospitals with high emergency care demands, and billions more for small businesses and industries hit hard by the disruption of the coronavirus. The $50 billion directive for Small Business Administration has received widespread support among the American people, garnering an incredible approval rating of 71%.

While President Trump and his administration have worked to implement these historic initiatives, the American people have taken notice. A recent Washington Post/ABC News Poll recorded 51% approval among Americans in support of President Trump’s management of the coronavirus. When asked in a recent Morning Consult poll if the Trump Administration’s response was on the “right track,” Americans responded with a net positive rating. Even Democratic officials have admitted President Trump’s leadership and promptness has had an overwhelmingly positive impact on their communities. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, California Governor Gavin Newsom, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio are all on record praising the response of the federal government and the assistance of the Trump administration.

Florida Man is at it again: Gaetz gave over $184,000 in taxpayer money to ‘friend’ for office space

Walter Einenkel
Daily Kos Staff
Friday April 17, 2020 · 12:59 PM CDT


Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida is best known for a never-ending stream of idiotic statements, seemingly criminal acts, and unsafe theatrical political stunts. Oh yeah, and for being racist. A couple of days ago, Rep. Gaetz called out fellow Republican Sen. Richard Burr for his suspicious insider-information-led stock sell offs, timed coincidentally with closed-door intelligence briefings on the coronavirus pandemic. Is Rep. Gaetz turning over a new leaf and putting aside partisan politics in order to go after genuine corruption on Capitol Hill? Hmmmm. Probably not.

What’s more likely is that Rep. Gaetz was informed that ProPublica was going to be publishing a new report about Gaetz’s relationship with “longtime friend, adviser, campaign donor and legal client,” real estate developer and restauranteur Collier Merrill. It turns out that Rep. Gaetz has spent almost $200,000 of taxpayer money renting out space from Mr. Merrill—a clear violation of the rules for the use of the people’s money.

According to the House rules on leasing and renting: “The Lease or Amendment is entered into at fair market value as the result of a bona fide, arms-length, marketplace transaction. The Lessor and Lessee certify that the parties are not relatives nor have had, or continue to have, a professional or legal relationship (except as a landlord and tenant).” The office space in question is a historical building in Pensacola, Florida, that Rep. Gaetz has paid more than $184,000 for since coming into office in 2017.

Merrill has said that the market price was below market value, though Gaetz later said that it was “at or below market value.” Merrill admitted to ProPublica that he has indeed advised Gaetz on policy and this whole issue of renting is a overblown. “I probably be damned if I do, damned if I didn't. If I [set the rent] too cheap, I'm probably doing him a favor, if I do it too expensive, he’s doing me a favor.”

Of course, when the House’s Administrative Counsel approved the rental agreement, Rep. Gaetz told ProPublica he did not “feel he needed to disclose his long relationship with Merrill to the House.” Rep. Gaetz defended his relationship with Merrill, saying that there was nothing “inappropriate” in their relationship or in the business relationship that the American people are now in with Merrill’s real estate.

Hello, Friends —
As we begin making plans to reopen America, we must also learn more about — and address — the causes and origins of COVID-19.

This week, Senator Martha McSally and I, along with dozens of our colleagues in the House and Senate, sent a letter to House and Senate leadership, requesting that the Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory will never again receive a dime of American taxpayers’ money.

I have also signed onto legislation by my colleagues Dan Crenshaw and Lance Gooden, which, if passed, would give America the right to sue the Chinese government for COVID-19 related damages.

There is no reason that American taxpayers should have to bear the brunt of the cost of this foreign virus, especially since the spread could have been greatly lessened if the Chinese government had been open and honest — instead of destroying evidence and refusing to share their research and findings with the international community.

THE HOUSE GETS BACK TO WORK
On Thursday, the House came back to Capitol Hill to vote on the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act. This legislation, which passed with my support, replenishes the depleted funds in the Paycheck Protection Program, and provides additional funding to the health care providers who are on the front lines of the fight against COVID-19.

The Paycheck Protection Program, which allows banks and credit unions to provide government-backed loans to small business, has been a success, and a critical lifeline to the many small businesses facing insolvency nationwide because of coronavirus. Unfortunately, this program ran out of money last week — but Democrats in the House and Senate refused to replenish it until yesterday. It is disgraceful that Congressional Democrats are more concerned with scoring political “points” than helping small business nationwide stave off bankruptcy.

The same day, House Democrats also voted to establish an investigative subcommittee, called the “Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis.” This proposal, which passed with absolutely no Republican support, is wholly unnecessary — the House’s existing committees are more than sufficient to assess the coronavirus response. It seems that the purpose of this new ‘select subcommittee’ is the same as the Democrats’ focus since the 2016 election: “get Trump!” It’s another waste of Congressional time and resources.

Gaetz drafting legislation aimed at social media role in electoral process

Jim Thompson, Northwest Florida Daily News Published 2:37 p.m. CT May 29, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. — One day before President Donald Trump was set to issue a Thursday executive order that could set the stage for sanctioning social media platforms for the way they handle their content, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., announced that he and his Republican colleagues on the House Judiciary Committee are drafting legislation aimed at that same goal.

In the Wednesday installment of his podcast, “Hot Takes With Matt Gaetz,” the congressman said the proposed legislation would target Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996. Trump’ executive order also was reportedly aimed at that section of federal law.

Broadly, Section 230 provides liability protections for social media services like Twitter, Facebook and others, on the grounds that they are not publishers of the information that appears on their sites, but are merely platforms for expression.

That distinction was brought into sharp relief as Twitter began this week to append fact-checking labels to some of President Trump’s tweets, including recent tweets contending mail-in ballots are ripe for fraud. Other recent Twitter posts by Trump also have been problematic, including his repeated references to the 2001 death of Lori Klausitis, a former staffer for then-U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough, in Scarborough’s office in Fort Walton Beach.

Officials concluded that Klausitis died from a fall in which she struck her head on the edge of a desk in the otherwise unoccupied office, but Trump has been suggesting on Twitter that Scarborough was somehow involved with the death.

But with regard to electoral politics, Gaetz said on his Wednesday podcast that social media platforms’ handling of content raises serious policy questions.

“And so it is an important question, not of politics, but of policy,” Gaetz said. “Are we going to treat entities like Twitter, like Facebook, like Google, as unbiased platforms, or are they going to take on more the role of a news organization --- an aggregator, someone who is creating, enhancing or limiting various content?”

More specifically, Gaetz said, “Twitter, yet again, is choosing to enter the political fray as a fact-checker now, indicating that on President Trump’s tweets, they are going to provide their analysis of whether or not they believe the contents of those tweets to be true.”

Gaetz went on to say that the “initial play from Twitter seems to be that they’re not merely going to provide a place for people to share their ideas, they’re going to add their analysis to those ideas, whether you like them or not. And we’re perhaps left to wonder whether or not that’s going to impact who sees them, and when they see them, and how frequently they see them.“

Taking action to rein in social media services is particularly important in this election year, Gaetz argues, because the ongoing work to limit the spread of COVID-19 is limiting opportunities for large gatherings like campaign rallies and political conventions.

“And so, digitally, we see the stakes higher than they’ve ever been,” Gaetz said on his podcast. In fact, Gaetz added in a Thursday interview, it was the restrictions put in place to help control the spread of COVID-19 that prompted him to communicate digitally via his new podcast.

“I haven’t had an ’Open Gaetz’ Day in months,” the congressman said, referencing what had been his frequent personal appearances throughout the district.

Gaetz also said Thursday, prior to President Trump’s issuance of an executive order, that whatever the order said, it wouldn’t halt work on the legislative proposal on which he and his Republican colleagues on the House Judiciary Committee are now working.

Instead, he said, both the executive order and the legislation will be part of a three-pronged effort, also involving enforcement by the Federal Election Commission and the Federal Communications Commission, to address the role of social media platforms in the political process.

“We’re going to be turning up the heat,” Gaetz said.
