‘Fraud and fabrication!’ Trump erupts on Twitter as his former aides deliver bombshell testimony

Published

on

President Donald Trump clearly must see the writing on the wall: the narrowing of options, the polls increasingly supporting impeachment and removal from office, day after day of subpoenaed current and former administration officials being deposed by House investigators, the bipartisan condemnation of his single-handed destruction of decades of U.S. Middle East policy that has led to ethnic cleansing of America’s now-former allies in the war against ISIS, his approval polls sinking, the massive exodus from his administration, and, of course, certain impeachment with odds ever increasing that the Senate will actually convict and remove him from office.

So Trump is responding the only way he knows how: more lies, more threats, more fear-mongering.

Wednesday morning Trump took to Twitter, blasting the “Radical Left Dems,” as he labeled them, and calling for the impeachment of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intel Chairman Adam Schiff. (Members of Congress and Senators cannot be impeached.)

He called all the Democratic 2020 presidential candidates – the top ones polls consistently show beating him by double-digits – “clowns,” while fear-mongering if he loses the election (assuming he’s still in office for that) the U.S. economy “would CRASH, just like in 1929.”

And he claimed “there is NO WAY that any of the Democrat Candidates that we witnessed last night could possibly become President of the United States.” Polls say otherwise.

Trump also falsely claimed a 95% approval rating among Republicans, which is a straight-up, made-up lie.

He also claimed he will win re-election, while Republicans will retain the Senate, and take back the House – something currently considered an impossibility.

If all that weren’t enough, Trump cried about the process of the impeachment inquiry, revealing once again he has zero understanding of how things work. Suggesting he is the Republican Party, he complained, “Republicans are totally deprived of their rights in this Impeachment Witch Hunt. No lawyers, no questions, no transparency!”

The impeachment inquiry is an investigation. He can have all the lawyers he wants during the trial, which is held by the Senate.

“The good news is that the Radical Left Dems have No Case. It is all based on their Fraud and Fabrication!” Trump tweeted.

Every piece of evidence, from his own White House call summary of his conversation with the president of Ukraine, to his admission – on national TV – of committing a crime, to the whistleblowers stepping forward, to the resignations of top-level administration officials, to the reported criminal investigation of his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, and the arrest of Giuliani’s henchmen, and so much more, say otherwise.

In Trump’s ‘murder the messenger’ White House ‘it’s survival of the morally sickest’: conservative

Published

on

In his column for the Daily Beast, conservative -- and former Republican -- Matt Lewis explained that Donald Trump's decision to turn on Dr. Anthony Fauci is yet another example of his habit of destroying advisers who don't tell him what he wants to hear which is why and, in this case, more Americans are going to die in the coronavirus pandemic.

As Lewis notes, Fauci, who has been brutally frank about the resurgent COVID-19 health crisis that is now swamping Arizona, Texas and Florida, joins a long line of high profile administration officials who have found themselves on the president's hit list for not toeing the administration's line.

Florida nurses bust Ron DeSantis for dismissing COVID-19 explosion as a ‘blip’

Published

The coronavirus pandemic is growing worse in Florida, but Gov. Ron DeSantis insists the explosion in cases is just a "blip."

The state recorded more than 15,300 new cases Sunday, and the positivity rate had exploded to 11.25 percent -- a 56-percent jump from a month ago -- but DeSantis disagrees with medical providers who warn the worst is yet to come, reported The Daily Beast.

“We’ve got the census today," DeSantis said Friday, before the weekend's dire numbers. "I think between 10 and 12 or 13,000 — somewhere like that — beds are available. There’ll be articles saying, ‘Oh, my gosh. They’re at 90 percent.’ Well, that’s how hospitals normally run.”

Texas hospitals are running out of drugs, beds, ventilators and even staff

Published

on

Many Texas hospitals are no longer accepting transfer patients in order to maintain space for a surge that’s expected to come. In some parts of the state, it’s already here.

A coronavirus patient in Anahuac was flown by helicopter to a hospital in El Campo — 120 miles away — because closer facilities could not take him.

Ambulances are waiting up to 10 hours to deliver patients to packed Hidalgo County emergency rooms.

And short-staffed hospitals in Midland and Odessa have had to turn away ailing COVID-19 patients from rural West Texas facilities that can’t offer the care they need.
