Bill Maher Blasts Team Biden For Blaming 254,000 Covid Deaths In US On Trump

Published

on

HBO talk show host Bill Maher says despite endless claims by the Biden campaign, President Trump isn’t responsible for the more than 254,000 U.S. deaths from COVID-19.

Panelist Jon Meacham, a speechwriter and adviser to Democrat Joe Biden, appeared on Maher’s “Real Time” show on Friday and blamed Trump for the deaths.

It’s easy, because it seems so incompetent, to make fun of it, but this is an administration whose fundamental incompetence has led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people and the most significant weakening of institutions that, however flawed, have produced, by and large, a more perfect union,” he said.

Meacham mocked the press conference last week by Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani in which Giuliani pushed so-far unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

“It’s easy to be amused by Rudy, but we’re just lucky that our authoritarians are so incompetent,” Meacham said.

Everybody’s incompetent,” Maher shot back. “It wasn’t just Trump that led to those deaths. He certainly did his part, but we’re an incompetent country.”

“That’s true,” Meacham said.

“And an unhealthy one,” Maher added.

Maher also took issue with a claim from another panelist, Alex Wagner, a former MSNBC journalist, who said conservatives have ignored the pandemic for “completely partisan reasons.” And he blamed Republicans and Trump for “inaction.”

“We have a battle right now against an unseen enemy, and one side has no interest in fighting it for completely partisan reasons,” Wagner said. “I mean, that is a cravenness – the inability, the inaction, the dismissal of COVID-19 as a deadly virus tells you the ends to which the Republican Party and Donald Trump will go to preserve partisan worldview.”

But Maher fired back, saying: “I mean, there’s blame to go around everywhere, there’s blindness on some parts everywhere.”

The panel also discussed Georgia’s two U.S. Senate runoff elections set for Jan. 5, which will decide the balance of power in the Senate, where Republicans hold 50 seats and Democrats 48.

Meacham said the two Democratic challengers, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, represent “one more shot” for Georgia voters to “get this right.”

“This is an existential moment in American democratic – lowercase ‘d’ – history,” Meacham said. “And we have one more shot at this. The voters of Georgia have one more shot to get this right by sending these Democrats to the Senate.”

Meacham recently made headlines when he was dropped as an MSNBC contributor after failing to disclose that he had been helping write some of Biden’s speeches. Meacham did not tell the network that he had been involved in drafting Biden’s speeches, including his acceptance address in Wilmington, The New York Times reported. He had been “playing a larger role than was previously known” behind the scenes of the Biden campaign, the Times wrote.

According to the Times, Meacham was “writing drafts of speeches and offering edits on many of Mr. Biden’s big addresses, including one he gave at Gettysburg last month and his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention.”

Pro-Trump Senators Go To Battle With Mitch McConnell

Published

on

Finally, the GOP has grown a spine and is standing up to the recently radicalized Mitch McConnell.

According to reports, there are several Senate Republicans who are Mitch that if he presses on in convicted Trump bin this impeachment trial, then they will no longer support him as leader.

Looks like the shoe is on the other foot Mitch!

From Breitbart

Senate Republicans are reportedly firing warning shots ahead of the looming impeachment trial for former President Trump, suggesting that they will no longer be able to support Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as leader if he votes to convict the former president.

McConnell has yet to determine how he will vote in the upcoming Senate impeachment trial, stating in a letter earlier this month that he intends to “listen to the legal arguments when they are presented to the Senate.” His refusal to reveal his leanings and recent determination that Trump and “other powerful people” essentially “provoked” the January 6 mob have appeared to cause a bit of unease among Senate Republicans.

“If he does, I don’t know if he can stay as leader,” one unnamed senior GOP senator said, according to CNN. The senator apparently told the outlet that “several of his colleagues held similar views and asked not to be named discussing sensitive internal politics.”

Similarly, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) said he would not be able to support McConnell as leader if the Kentucky Republican voted to convict Trump.

“‘No, no, no,’ he said, adding, ‘I don’t even think we should be having a trial.’”

Lawmakers in the Democrat-led House of Representatives, including ten Republicans, voted to impeach Trump for the second time one week after the U.S. Capitol protest that occurred on January 6, accusing him of inciting the chaos that took place. Now the Senate is tasked with holding a trial, despite the fact that Trump is already out of office. However, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has already revealed that their major goal, in addition to convicting Trump, is to prevent him from ever running for office again amid fears that he will launch another presidential bid for 2024.

National Guard Troops To Be Kept In DC Until March

Published

on

A few thousand National Guard troops could end up staying in the nation’s capital until mid-March, a U.S. defense official confirms to Fox News.

The National Guard is in the process of meeting with various federal agencies to “determine their requirements” for troops to stay beyond January, the official said. Planning is underway, but no final decisions have been made, the official added.

Around 25,000 Guardsmen deployed to Washington D.C., ahead of President Biden’s inauguration after the deadly Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol where authorities were badly outnumbered by pro-Trump supporters.

The ceremony went off with only a few minor arrests. About a dozen Guard troops were removed from their posts after being vetted by the FBI, including two who made extremist statements about the event.

In a statement Thursday, the National Guard said about 7,000 troops would remain in Washington through the “end of the month.” But there is concern among some city and federal authorities that protesters might return to Washington in early March on the original presidential inauguration date, March 4.

Six southern states left the union after Abraham Lincoln was elected in November and before his inauguration in March, a period known as “Secession Winter.”

The 20th Amendment moved the inauguration to its present Jan. 20 date. Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first president sworn into office on that date when he began his second term in 1937.

Before the ratification of the 20th Amendment in 1933, the new president was not sworn until the March following the election.

Lawmakers from both political parties were fuming this week after learning that troops were forced to take rest breaks outside the Capitol. Images circulated online showing Guardsmen camped in a cold garage, which prompted bipartisan calls for an investigation.

Democrat Voters Are Already Having Buyers Remorse In Georgia

Published

on

With the Democrat Senate wins in the state, greedy Georgia voters could already feel that $2000 in their pockets. More free money just for electing Democrats. What could be simpler? Yes, they didn’t earn the money, and yes the Democrat stand on the issue was tantamount to a bribe, granted- as was the final stand of the two Republicans. But hey, now that the votes are in the $2000 is on the way, right? Wrong.

Joe Biden wants the amount to be $2000 in total, not in addition. As most Americans already have received $600, that makes the next check only for $1400. But that’s not what Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff promised and viciously campaigned on. Vote for us, they said, get the cash.

It recalls the line from Benjamin Franklin, “When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.” Well, “the people” (such a nasty concept) have been voting themselves money since Ben’s day. So perhaps he went a little drama queen on us there. But the underlying sentiment is spot on.

FNC: “Georgia Democrats have reportedly already begun fuming over their two new senators, the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, who were sworn in Wednesday by Vice President Kamala Harris, according to a new report. Both men narrowly won hard-fought races against Republican incumbents in the Peach State, winning control of the Senate for the Democrats in the process. But a major issue raised by critics is that President Biden espoused a coronavirus relief plan that would send $1,400 checks to many Americans – while Warnock and Ossoff campaigned on a $2,000 promise.”

“Warnock and Ossoff made it a point to endorse and exclusively say ‘$2,000 checks,’” Georgia Democrat Oscar Zaro told Mediaite. “A lot of the people in my district voted blue in the runoff for two main reasons. One: Loeffler and Perdue denying us relief during COVID while profiting millions themselves; and two, $2,000 checks.”
