Paid Shill Newt Gingrich: 'Obama Lives In A Bubble'

crooksandliars - Tue, 04/30/2024 - 10:48

Fox News and Trump sycophant Newt Gingrich were upset that President Obama defended the New York Times and MSNBC for not making up conspiracy theories like Fox News and most other right-wing news outlets.

Recent campus protests over Gaza have been used by Fox and other right-wing outlets to distract from Trump being on trial for election interference via porn star hush money.

Gingrich plays right into the Fox script, as he is paid to do. There MUST be "indoctrination on campuses" since students are protesting for Palestinians.

The natural culmination of left-wing ideological brainwashing on our campuses, so, you know, I think for Obama, none of that exists because he, you know, he lives in a nice little isolated world surrounded by people who say, 'yes, you really are brilliant, Mr. President.'

And he believes them.

Newt Gingrich claims to know what Obama thinks and feels better than he does. The hatred just pours out from his cracked porcelain pores.

Fox News is a bubble all on its own,n and Trump soaks up the worship he receives from all right-wing media. if anyone lives in a bubble, it's the Christian nationalistic MAGA cult.

Newt has to serve Trump because Donald gave Newt's wife-slash-six-year mistress her dream job of Ambassador to the Vatican. Talk about blasphemy!

Starting To Think That James Comer Guy Is A Real Bonehead

crooksandliars - Tue, 04/30/2024 - 10:48

It sure looks like House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer is running out of excuses as to why his impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden has stalled. This time, Comer wants you to believe that it's because more evidence comes in daily. It's been 15 months, and they haven't found evidence against the President, but sure, Comer, go with that. Comer told that to a mentally exhausted-looking Newsmax host, Eric Bolling, about this mountain of evidence that he has not revealed because there is just so much of it!

"Here's a $64,000 question, Chairman," Bolling said. "When do we hold them accountable for perjury or evading taxes?"

"A lot. A lot. Evading taxes, many financial crimes," Comer insisted. "The reason that this has taken so long, in addition to the obstruction for the White House, is there's more evidence that comes in every day."

It must be so embarrassing to be Comer. He has failed to come up with any sort of evidence to present against the President. Even Eric Bolling looked like he wanted to slap him.

As one Xitter user joked, “I didn’t pay my bills because I have too much money!”

And another X user wrote, "I can’t breathe cause there’s too much oxygen in the air."

Rep. Jared Moskowitz took a shot at Comer, too.

'Corrupt Karen' Who Played The Do-You-Know-Who-I-Am? Card Apologizes

crooksandliars - Tue, 04/30/2024 - 09:16

Over the weekend we brought you the sad spectacle of upstate New York district attorney Sandara Doorley who tried to browbeat a police officer out of giving her a speeding ticket. Apparently unbeknownst to Doorley though they have these things called bodycams now and every word that came out of her mouth was an ad for why she should never be a district attorney or have any sort of career in law enforcement (despite her previous thirty years in law enforcement). Her 26-minute bodycam footage was a confession of why she is unfit for public office. If Sandra Doorley had an ounce of integrity she'd resign, but she won't. These types of individuals never do.

A New York district attorney has issued a formal apology after she was captured on bodycam berating a cop over a speeding ticket.

Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley released a video statement on Monday in response to viral footage that saw her arguing with a Webster cop and calling him an 'a**h****.'

'Last Monday, I failed you and the standards that I hold myself to and for that, I am so sorry. What I did was wrong - no excuses, I take full responsibility for my actions,' Doorley said.

Unitarian Church In Dallas Opens REAL Pregnancy Counseling Center

crooksandliars - Tue, 04/30/2024 - 08:32

Leaders of the First Unitarian Church of Dallas opened a new pregnancy resource center that will provide comprehensive reproductive health information, unlike fake crisis pregnancy centers. Via Dallas Morning News:

The Truth Pregnancy Resource Center is a direct reaction to Texas’ strict abortion bans that made the procedure illegal in all cases but those that threaten the life of the mother. Abortion clinics around the state shuttered, limiting access to women’s health care providers in regions already known to be maternal care deserts.

Doors down from the now-closed Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center, which offered abortions, the new pregnancy center will provide counseling, sonograms, and information about all possible outcomes of pregnancy, from adoption to parenthood to traveling to have an abortion in neighboring states.

“This is a little bit of redemption for [former Southwestern Women’s staff]” said Rev. Daniel Kanter, CEO and senior minister at First Unitarian. “And none of this is really about me at all. It’s about the opportunity to do good in the world, to have a church say that this issue around reproductive dignity matters.”

Michigan AG Serves Social Media Warrants For Fake Electors Plot

crooksandliars - Tue, 04/30/2024 - 08:09

I'm always stunned when people believe private messages are, you know, actually private. Now Chesebro is caught lying to prosecutors about how many social media accounts he had. Really stupid, Ken! There goes your plea deal! Via

Google and X, formerly Twitter, recently provided hundreds of files to Michigan prosecutors for their 2020 election subversion probe, complying with search warrants that investigators obtained after CNN revealed secret social media accounts belonging to pro-Trump lawyer Kenneth Chesebro, who played a major role in the fake electors plot.

The previously unreported warrants gave prosecutors access to new Chesebro emails and his private direct messages on Twitter. The warrants make clear that Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is still gathering new information in her probe, nine months after she charged the state’s fake electors with forgery and other crimes for signing certificates falsely claiming Donald Trump won the state in 2020.

A top member of her team testified last week that the investigation is ongoing and that Trump is an unindicted co-conspirator in the case, which is not expected to go to trial before the November election.

Now here's the good part:
