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.

The right-wing scored more in years of Trump than eight years of George W. Bush: report

Published

on

President George W. Bush oversaw eight years that restricted rights, banned LGBTQ equality, appointed anti-choice judges and so much more. But under Donald Trump's presidency, social conservatives have managed to roll back any progress made by President Barack Obama's leadership.

A new Axios report listed out any anti-LGBTQ, anti-women and anti-poor policies.

“He campaigned saying that he would be a good friend to LGBT people,” James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s LGBT and HIV Project, told VOX. "Actions speak far louder than words. And what he's done has been a wreck."

Israel’s Netanyahu just christened a building named after Trump — that doesn’t even exist

Published

on

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent his Father’s Day dedicating a new Trump Tower-type building that hasn't been built in a town that doesn't exist.

Standing in front of a large sign saying "Trump Heights," Netanyahu, who is being forced back into another election, announced the building before planning even began, Axios reported.

A great day on the Golan. PM Netanyahu and I had the honor to dedicate “Trump Heights” — first time Israel has dedicated a village in honor of a sitting president since Harry Truman (1949). Happy Birthday Mr. President!! @POTUS pic.twitter.com/fdYWzokFLK

This graphic explains why Speaker Pelosi is resistant to impeachment

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told her caucus that they can do investigations into the president without impeachment. The difference, however, is that there are fewer legal benefits available to Congress in their oversight role than in impeachment.

Theoretically, it should enable Democrats to do the research they need, but the White House is taking the bold step to defy the oversight the Constitution outlines. The only option open to the Democrats has been to go to court with their case outlining how the White House is breaking the law. Thus far, they've won two lawsuits about their investigations, and they will likely gain more.
