The Romney Campaign is Lying about the Detroit Auto Industry Bailout

Published

on

Over the weekend, a campaign spokesperson for the Romney campaign said the following:

“[Romney’s] position on the bailout was exactly what President Obama followed. I know it infuriates them to hear that…. The only economic success that President Obama has had is because he followed Mitt Romney’s advice.

This is a lie. It’s a lie. And while it is expected that Mitt Romney is going to lie about every fucking thing, that does not excuse the media’s attempt to portray this as anything but a fucking lie.

Here’s what Romney said about the GM Bailout:

LET.DETROIT.GO.BANKRUPT. That’s what he said.

I don’t want to read a 750 word opus about Romney’s lie. I don’t need a “short history” of his change in positions. I don’t want to read about how calling it a lie is too harsh because yadda yadda and blah blah blah.  I don’t want to hear about that one time Obama said or did this or that.

Mitt Romney is a liar.

So much so, that Steve Benen has 15 volumes of Mitt Romney’s lies categorized and linked for easy reference. Fifteen volumes.

Not only is Mitt Romney a liar, he’s a serial liar. He repeats the same fucking lies week in and week out with such regularity that one can draw no other conclusion than this: Mitt Romney is willfully and knowingly lying to the American people in an attempt to win this election, and the media is letting him.

When is the media going to stop allowing itself to be played for fools by blindly parroting this man’s lies ad nauseum? When is the media going to stop the bullshit “both sides do it” false equivalency game?

MITT IS A LIAR. CALL HIM OUT ON IT.

And yes, I’m cranky.  But that doesn’t change the fact that Mitt Romney is a fucking liar.

Trump boasts about ordering Iran strike while reporters watch: ‘You’d have a nice, big story to report’

Published

on

During an appearance with the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the Oval Office, Donald Trump boasted to reporters he could wipe out Iran that very moment-- and that would give them something to write about.

The president referred to the fact that he has previously been accused of wanting to plunge the country into war before praising himself for his self-restraint.

That led to an extended riff by the president on the damage he could inflict on Iran.

"The easiest thing I could do would be, 'Go ahead, fellas, go do it,'" Trump said of the Pentagon. "And that would be a very bad day for Iran. That's the easiest thing I could do, it's so easy. And for all of those that say, 'Oh, they should do it, it shows weakness,' actually, in my opinion, it shows strength."

Appearing on CNN on Friday morning to discuss an alarming whistleblower report on Donald Trump's actions that the president's administration is withholding from Congress, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) encouraged the acting Director of National Intelligence to hand the report over and ignore the administration.

Speaking with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Swalwell made a direct appeal to acting-DNI head Joseph Maguire.

"This is an opportunity for Republicans and Democrats to unite and say, we don't want this in our democracy," Swalwell explained. "You know, that's why I wrote the Protecting Our Democracy Act, to, you know, have a bipartisan commission look at this."

Published

A veteran law enforcement official called for a new special counsel investigation of President Donald Trump's communications with the Ukrainian president.

An intelligence official filed a whistleblower complaint against the president, and speculation has begun to focus the report concerns Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden in exchange for U.S. aid -- and former Justice Department official Michael Bromwich called for a formal probe.

"Time for a new Special Counsel," Bromwich tweeted.

Bromwich -- inspector general for the Department of Justice from 1994-1999, former assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and associate counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel for Iran-Contra -- was responding to a summation of the allegations against Trump.
