Joy Reid used her MSNBC show to spread one ridiculous lie

Published

Democrats and their media allies are furious that Joe Biden trails Donald Trump in the polls.

So they are doubling down on their propaganda.

And Joy Reid used her MSNBC show to spread one ridiculous lie.

During COVID, schools were exposed for teaching far-left nonsense over distance learning.

Since then, the classroom has become a flashpoint in the culture war.

In attempts to defend the neo-Marxist doctrine of critical race theory (CRT) being taught in schools, Democrats and their media allies pivoted to the talking point that Republicans did not want slavery and other atrocities being taught in schools.

Tulsa race riot

And MSNBC host Joy Reid pushed that narrative, saying that Oklahoma did not want to teach about the Tulsa race riot of 1921 where dozens of people were killed and the Greenwood District was destroyed.

Curiously, the Left never talk about how Greenwood, also known as Black Wall Street, was rebuilt over the course of a couple years and began to thrive again.

During a conversation with Damario Solomon-Simmons, a lawyer representing a survivor of the riot, Reid said, “Oklahoma is a state that is not exactly in favor of telling all of the history, as that justice made it clear, they don’t do that. What do you make of the fact that even now you have some Oklahoma officials who are trying to ban history that would include the history of the Tulsa massacre, even as your case is going on?”

Current-day America

Solomon-Simmons responded, “You know, Joy, I remember 20, 25 years ago, when I was in college, a freshman, myself in college, I was thinking man, I wish I was born, you know, during the 60s and fight those fights. I never thought I’d be fighting the same type of things today and that’s what we are actually doing and it’s sad and, you know, I speak to my 88-year-old father-in-law, who just turned 88 a couple of weeks ago, Aubrey Winston, and I was saying, ‘Man, can you believe we are still dealing with the stuff you were dealing with growing up in the 40s and 50s?’ And, you know, it’s kind of disheartening. But at the same time, I’m blessed to stand on the shoulders of the ancestors who have gone through so much more.”

First, Oklahoma made the Tulsa massacre part of the educational standard in 2002 and re-emphasized it as part of the curriculum in 2019.

Second, to compare 2024 to the Jim Crow era is the type of absurd rhetoric in which the Left engage on a regular basis.

Democrats are reaching back 100 years to find racist crimes committed by other Democrats in an attempt to scare people into voting for Democrats.

White House Bidenomics spokesman crashed and burned in one disastrous interview

Published

By

Joe Biden has committed countless gaffes as President.

Members of his administration seem to be taking their cues from him.

And a White House Bidenomics spokesman crashed and burned in one disastrous interview.

Democrats and their media allies have been trying hard to sell Bidenomics to the American people.

However, Americans aren’t buying it.

Trust in Biden plummets

Polls show that respondents trust Donald Trump on the economy more than Joe Biden by 20 points.

It’s easy to understand why, with inflation still hampering people’s purchasing power.

And Biden’s ability to sell Bidenomics got ten times more difficult after his top economic adviser sat for a disastrous interview.

Jared Bernstein, Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, was interviewed for the documentary Finding the Money, a movie that promotes the kooky Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), and he fumbled on Econ 101 questions.

Bernstein claimed, “The U.S. government can’t go bankrupt because we can print our own money.”

Countries that have experienced hyperinflation found out the hard way that that is not true.

No wonder Bidenomics is a joke

The interviewer asked, “Like you said, they print the dollar, so why does the government even borrow?”

Then Bernstein’s brain broke.

He tried to filibuster his way to a coherent answer, then failed. 

Bernstein said, “Again, some of this stuff gets – some of the language and concepts are just confusing. The government definitely prints money, and it definitely lends that money by selling bonds. Is that what they do? They sell bonds, yeah, they sell bonds. Right? Since they sell bonds, and people buy the bonds, and lend them the money.”

Again, Bernstein is the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers and he is struggling with basic monetary policy.

He continued, “A lot of times, at least to my ear with MMT, the language and the concepts can be kind of unnecessarily confusing but there is no question that the government prints money and then it uses that money to um, uh. . .I guess I’m just, I can’t really, I don’t get it, I don’t know what they’re talking about. . .It’s like, the government clearly prints money, it does it all the time, and it clearly borrows, otherwise you wouldn’t be having this debt and deficit conversation. So I don’t think there’s anything confusing there.”

Yikes.

 

Perhaps one problem is that Bernstein has zero training in economics.

He received a Bachelor of Music at the Manhattan School of Music, a Master of Social Work at Hunter College, and a Doctorate in Social Work at Columbia University.

Bernstein somehow parlayed his love of music and social work into a career in economic policy.

He had the correct “progressive” perspective, so he climbed the ranks in Democrat Party politics.

As for the question that stumped Bernstein, the government borrows money for various reasons, one being that it helps maintain worldwide faith in the U.S. dollar.

Reckless spending and going off the gold standard have significantly devalued fiat currency.

If the government were to print enough money to pay off the national debt in one fell swoop, it would have devastating consequences for the economy.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas couldn’t believe his eyes after one late-night host suggested the unimaginable

Published

By

Democrats have turned their fire on the Supreme Court.

They revered the court when they had a liberal majority.

And Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was hit with another ugly smear from one late-night host.

Leftists use a common tactic to gain power.

They criticize someone or something until they control it or destroy it.

The Supreme Court currently has a conservative tilt, so it has come under constant attack from the Left.

Democrats suddenly hate the Supreme Court

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said that Joe Biden should pack the Supreme Court, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said that Democrats should disregard court ruling altogether.

Constant hit pieces have come out against conservative justices, plus Hollywood is getting in on the act.

Showtime produced the docuseries Deadlocked to portray the current court as having gone rogue.

And late-night comedian John Oliver offered Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the main target of the Left’s ire, $1 million to “get the f*** off the Supreme Court.”

Hacky comedian admiration society

Oliver appeared on Seth Meyers’ unwatchable late night and doubled down on his slander of Thomas.

Meyers said, “There is something that has not happened yet that you threw out into the universe. You basically offered Clarence Thomas a million dollars a year. . .if he resigned from the Supreme Court.”

Oliver replied, “I did do that. I did, yeah. Yeah. Easy.”

“Easy,” Meyers repeated.

Oliver continued, “Easy. So easy to feel that way when you didn’t make the offer, and I felt exactly like you until the offer went out on TV. I was so excited. ‘Oh, that was fun. That show went really well. Oh [bleep], it’s about to happen now, isn’t it?’”

Meyers added, “Now, I imagine there’s multiple people you just. . .have to talk to about that. People, lawyers. . .Your wife.”

“Definitely,” Oliver said.

Meyers asked, “Were they as applaud-y as this group?”

Oliver answered, “I would say my wife was on the low side of the applaud-y. It was more, ‘What did you just tell me?’ I did say to her, ‘It’s until one of us dies.’ And I think that if he takes the offer—”

“Not you or your wife, you or Clarence Thomas,” Meyers clarified.

Oliver replied, “Yeah. Well, you diagnosed the awkwardness in that room really well. ‘Why would you put that in the offer, you sociopath?’ Until I or Clarence Thomas die. And I did feel like if he took the deal that there were going to be some people so angry with me that they were going to kill me. Therefore, my wife wouldn’t be on the hook for the money. But she didn’t take that as the reassuring statement that I hoped. ‘Oh, I won’t be around for that. Don’t worry. It’s fine.’”

Meyers then asked, “What was the window of time you gave him?”

Oliver said, “It was—we gave him 30 days. Honestly, I’d open it up again. . .As long as he gets out before the—before they’re doing the June decisions.”

“Yeah,” Meyers said.

Oliver added, “I would be willing to open discussions again.”

Sadly, this is what passes for late-night comedy these days.

Joe Scarborough made one statement on MSNBC that came back to bite him

Published

By

No network is more Trump-deranged than MSNBC.

The hosts spend all day spinning dark tales of Donald Trump becoming a dictator for life.

But Joe Scarborough made one statement on MSNBC that came back to bite him.

Democrat-controlled media outlets cannot keep their story straight.

Their narrative jumps around so much that it is almost impossible to follow.

And Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough contradicted himself regarding Donald Trump’s base of support.

Scarborough mocking Republicans

Scarborough said during a panel discussion, “You know, Jen [Palmieri], there’s a stereotype of the Trump voter that the media does. Oh, it’s—people are stumbling drunk out of their trailer park and, you know, shooting raccoons, or something like that. No! It’s bankers. It’s lawyers. It’s people with advanced degrees. . .Which is, it’s, it’s, the elites make this possible.”

However, Scarborough has constantly thumbed his nose at Trump supporters and denounced them as yokels.

Scarborough exaggerated a southern accent to mock House Oversight Committee Chairman Jim Comer (R-KY) and said, “We ain’t got nuthin’ but a squirrel fryer and a hound dog.”

He also said, “Comer and his gang are running for the hills. In their coon hats, holding a squirrel fryer in their left hand and a shotgun in the right!”

Scarborough also referred to House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) as “Jesus’s man in Congress,” then mocked Johnson by saying, “All you got to do is look at the Bible. That’s what I do.”

He also slammed pro-life politicians as “old, fat, white men in Mississippi.”

Scarborough, who laughably called himself a “conservative” recently, has lost all credibility with regard to fear-mongering about Trump.

He used to invite Trump onto his show during 2016 and joked about being his running mate.

Scarborough continued, “They read that Donald Trump says that there’s going to be mass deportation. He’s going to force prosecutors to arrest political enemies. He’s going to execute generals that don’t follow his commands. He’s able to use SEAL Team Six to execute political opponents. And he says you can’t arrest me for that.”

Boogeyman campfire stories

This is flat-out irresponsible journalism.

First, Trump should mass-deport illegal aliens, but most members of Congress don’t have the stomach to do it.

The press blowback would be like nothing ever seen before, even worse than the “kids in cages” fake controversy.

The idea that Trump would execute generals is ridiculous.

High-ranking members of the military bragged about lying to him about troop deployments.

But suddenly he’s going to kill the ranks in Stalinist fashion?

Scarborough added, “You can go down the list. He’s going to be a dictator from day one. He’s going to terminate the Constitution. On and on, they’ve heard all of this. They heard what he said to Time magazine a couple of days ago. It is a dark, autocratic vision of America. And these people, these educated people with advanced degrees, are the ones saying, yeah, I’ll support Donald Trump again. Thinking, oh, you know what? Maybe my investments will go, or maybe he won’t tax me 3%. Not understanding that this is not just a threat to democracy, but this is a threat to capitalism.”

Nobody outside of the most hardcore MSNBC and CNN watchers believes any of that nonsense.

But the Democrats and their media allies have nothing else, so they have chosen to dial up the fear-mongering to 11.
