Before the FBI busted accused MAGAbomber Cesar Sayoc, several Fox News personalities suggested that bombs might be a false flag operation conducted by a Democratic operative to rally voters before the midterm elections.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham, among others, laughed about the “Mickey Mouse movie prop” bombs on Thursday night.

On Friday, CNN’s Anderson Cooper had Kirsten Powers on his show to talk about the MAGAbomber. Powers was disgusted by the way Fox, where she used to be a contributor, handled the situation.

“These are people who, at least when I worked there, were very respectable,” she said. “I just can’t imagine them in the past entertaining this sort of thing. Fox has always been conservative-leaning, but this is just completely bonkers. I can’t believe what I just saw.”

Powers said threats were not new to American politics, but that this sort of thing is unprecedented.

“I was a left-of-center person on Fox News, I got a lot of attacks,” she said. “I never dealt with this kind of stuff. So this isn’t even about conservatives, this is about people who support Donald Trump. The people who do it are people who support Donald Trump.”

Powell had previously promised that the lawsuit would "release the Kraken" in an effort to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's win in Georgia.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor blasted her more conservative colleagues for barring New York state from reimposing coronavirus restrictions on religious gatherings.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4, in a late-night emergency ruling, that state officials could not reimpose limits on churches and synagogues to prevent the spread of the highly contagious virus, and Sotomayor penned a scathing dissent that was joined by Justice Elena Kagan.

"Amidst a pandemic that has already claimed over a quarter million American lives, the Court today enjoins one of New York’s public health measures aimed at containing the spread of COVID–19 in areas facing the most severe outbreaks," Sotomayor wrote.

Conservative rips GOP ‘turkeys’ for turning Thanksgiving COVID safety measures into a culture-war fight

Published

Writing in The Bulwark this Thursday, Tim Miller says that America should be experiencing a time of national solidarity in the midst of a global pandemic. Instead, "we have a president whose focus is entirely on his effort to perpetrate a fraud on the American public."

According to Miller, Republicans are disseminating a narrative that says coronavirus restriction should be met with a sort of "organized resistance" from individuals and businesses that feel unfairly oppressed. While everyone wants to be with their families on Thanksgiving, "one thing that most people have learned by the time they are adults is that they don’t get to do whatever they want whenever they want."
