Crooked Media - What A Day: Proud before the fall

Tuesday, June 07, 2022

 -Sen. John Thune (R-SD), regular guy, defending weapons of war

The rollout of the House January 6 Committee's findings will seemingly intersect with the Justice Department's growing investigation of a seditious GOP conspiracy against the United States. Turns out you don't always hate to see it—but the GOP does.

That's not the only thing the GOP hates to see. 
  • DOJ has reportedly homed in on an incriminating email from a senior Trump campaign official in Georgia, asking fake Republican electors in the state to meet in secret and cover their tracks. "I must ask for your complete discretion in this process," Robert Sinners wrote. "Your duties are imperative to ensure the end result—a win in Georgia for President Trump—but will be hampered unless we have complete secrecy and discretion." That proves the Trump campaign's direct involvement in a nationwide conspiracy to falsify documents in order to overturn the election, and a consciousness of guilt. Both the January 6 committee and prosecutors in Fulton County, GA, have also obtained this email. 
  • And if it were up to the entire GOP apparatus, nobody would learn about any of it. Consistent with the party's announced plans to undermine and divert attention from the committee hearings, Fox News announced that it will not preempt its prime time hosts (Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham) to carry Thursday's initial hearing live, and that these propagandists will only "cover the hearings as news warrants." 
The stakes for the committee and the country are incredibly high, but by all indications, we're in for explosive revelations that situate Trump in a violent conspiracy to overthrow the government. No wonder Republicans don't want people to know. 

June is Pride Month! It's also national outdoors month. Coincidence? Yes. This month, Lovett or Leave It is featured in Amazon Music’s Pride collection. Check out to the latest episodes with some of the funniest queers in the biz, and some straight ones too because they got past the guards. Listen to Lovett or Leave It on Amazon Music and wherever you get your podcasts.

Primary elections across the country tonight will help clarify the stakes of the November midterms, and not just in the usual "which Republicans will face which Democrats" way. In California, Los Angeles voters will determine which two primary candidates will run for mayor in the general election, but all indications suggest they'll pit Actual Democrat Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), against Billionaire Republican Playing Democrat, Rick Caruso, teeing up a November campaign that will have California Dems more worried than at any time since the GOP's failed Newsom recall effort which ended [checks watch] nine months ago. In the Bay Area, San Francisco voters will decide whether to recall district attorney Chesa Boudin (thus, feeding the right-wing myth that progressive prosecutors are responsible for a national violent crime wave that has bedeviled prosecutors of all persuasions). And in Montana, Republican voters are poised to nominate former congressman and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to return to the U.S. House of Representatives after he earned the distinction (by the numbers anyhow) of being Donald Trump's most corrupt cabinet official. That's just for starters! Check in tomorrow for more on What It All Means. 


If it ever seems to you like Republicans create the illusion of mass support by being loud and shameless—well, you're not wrong! New polling from the Wall Street Journal reveals the public widely rejects the bigoted lies Republicans tell to keep their base voters in a frothing rage and convey a sense of being on the offensive. For instance: 65 percent of respondents think being transgender should be "accepted by society" while only 32 percent said it should be "discouraged." Likewise, only 27 percent of respondents think their local public school systems focus "too much" on racism in the U.S., compared to 40 percent who say "too little" and 32 percent who say just about the right amount. Nevertheless Republican completely commandeered national discourse to fan false panics about "critical race theory" and "grooming" in schools, driving nearly all Democrats into the fetal position. The more you know...
