Keilar: GOP senator touted provision in bill he voted against

 

CNN's Brianna Keilar says Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS) touting a provision in the $1.9 trillion stimulus bill he voted against, and former President Donald Trump claiming he's was responsible for millions of Americans getting vaccinated, are examples of politicians trying to take full credit for things other people did.

  1. Lies has become the trademark of the Republicans. ‘You can use my words against me’ has no value, no meaning.

    1. ‘Don’t try to ruin my life with lies when your life can be ruined by the truth’ (uncredited quote, relayed by Gina Carano).

      Anyone else bugged how context has to be ignored and abandoned for arguments to hold any weight any longer, how cherry-picking is the preferred method these days of making a point all throughout conservative and liberal media?

      Used to think spin was gonna kill us. Now, I think cherry-picking will.

    2. They have no scruples. At all.

      It’s a shame bc I do believe there are honorable, empathetic Conservatives in this country but the powers that be in Washington are fucking it up for the entire party.

      I don’t feel bad for them. But it is a shame.

    3. @Jay McKenzie As a former democrat as of 2 years ago, I can say the exact same thing about dems. It is disheartening how easily the media lies slide down the throats of low information lefties without question even though there are massive problems evident. That alone betrays their almost unbelievable level of dishonesty or of outright stupidity. Once you look behind the curtain as I did, you will NEVER trust the main stream media again. To the CNNIDIOTS this is water off a ducks back. They are totally fine with corruption because they actually think(stupidly) it will never come for THEM.

    1. Boy this conversation Is exclusively For members only if you’re not American step away from the comment section and go make some taco’s or something

    2. @Jugganuat LOL, you think those in the country are more qualified to assess the situation? that sounds racist to me.

    3. @Daniel Pupo Proof LOL, there are loads of videos showing Biden sniffing little childrens hair, with that little sick smile of his, I almost puked when I saw the clippets.

    4. @Lynda Koers I can confirm drinking the stuff does kill covid, though bad side effect though.

  2. Those Republicans will stand in the way on everything the President does, just like they did with President Obama.

    1. @Paul Wilson trump had the house and the senate when he got in had they not been so hell bent on pushing through those tax cuts they may have kept the house and now they have nothing

    2. @Paul Wilson Trump and Republicans had total control of the government for 2 years and only managed to pass tax cuts for the rich

    3. @Paul Wilson Guess again racist. Democrats tried repeatedly to help him with that infrastructure week of his but the Republicans shot it down. So ignorant.

  3. i dont know what trump is so worried about, EVERYONE will remember him and the GQP for the covid crises.

    1. Oh yes Mr Trump we remember alright. We remember everything so shut up & dribble. We’ve got this NOW.

    2. @Pierce Sincere Why would you do such a thing? MAY not be your girlfriend for much longer and who could name her. That was tacky.

    3. @Paddy Whack My answer might shock you and God knows you don’t need any more shock. Your brain has had enough.

  4. I hope these Republicans are looking like they had pie dumped on their faces when Democrats enjoy an approval bump because of this package

  5. They don’t want to help us people who struggle,but they are ok with Senator Cancun having fun in the sun

  6. Old SOUL that talk and do only for his base. Everything done in the dark will come to the light. Shameful!

  7. Everyone needs to know that if Democrats didn’t win this last election, you wouldn’t be getting this money. Remember that when you vote during the next election.

    1. I disagree. They would be getting this money. The Republican’s number one complaint about this stimulus bill is that they don’t want Biden to get credit for it, so they are against it. Had Trump still been in office, we would be getting these checks anyway, only signed by Donald Trump. Mitch would be singing a completely different tune.

    2. @Sprocket Head really? As I remember it as trump and the Republucans blocked every stimulas from April to election 2020 and only did that because were hoping would get votes from idiots.
      Might of got this stimulas (I doubt it if republicans kept control of Senate) but certainly would of not of gotten another one for another four years.

    1. @Lew Rodd I want to answer your question but mostly you are correct about the anti Hillary campaign but biden is an absolute disgrace Iv thought about going back if I could do it over again and I can’t say I’d do it differently. Trump said everything to the point and said what people wanted to hear. It didn’t matter if it were true or not people just needed a little hope.

  8. “Do you remember in high school when the kid in your group project didnt do anything then took credit anyway?” LOL perfect metafor girl.

  9. “The secret of freedom is educating the people, whereas the secret of tyranny is keeping them ignorant.” ~Robespierre
    “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities” ~ Voltaire
    “There can be no successful appeal from the ballot to the bullet.” ~Abraham Lincoln
    “The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.” ~ Charles Bukowski
    “Everybody has a right to their opinion, but nobody has a right to be wrong in their facts.” ~ Bernard Baruch, quoted in 1946 AP article.
    “It’s easier to fool people than it is to convince them that they have been fooled.”

    “It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.” ~ James A. Baldwin
    “When stupidity is considered patriotism, it is unsafe to be intelligent.” ~ Isaac Asimov
    “If we are to have another contest in the near future of our national existence, I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon’s but between patriotism and intelligence on the one side, and superstition, ambition and ignorance on the other.” ~ Ulysses S. Grant, 1875
    “When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” ~ Typically misattributed to Sinclair Lewis, the original source of this quote is unknown, but likely derived from labor activist Eugene V. Debs 1917 quote, “Every robber or oppressor in history has wrapped himself in a cloak of patriotism or religion, or both.”

    Before World War II, Charles Lindbergh typified American heroism with his daring flights, including the first solo transatlantic flight, and his celebration of new technology. He parlayed his fame and heroic stature into a leading role in the America First movement, which opposed America’s entrance into the war against Nazi Germany. In 1939, in an essay entitled “Aviation, Geography, and Race,” published in that most American of journals, Reader’s Digest, Lindbergh embraced something close to Nazism for America:

    “It is time to turn from our quarrels and to build our White ramparts again. This alliance with foreign races means nothing but death to us. It is our turn to guard our heritage from Mongol and Persian and Moor, before we become engulfed in a limitless foreign sea.”

    The America First movement was the public face of pro-fascist sentiment in the United States at that time. In the twenties and thirties, many Americans shared Lindbergh’s views against immigration, especially by non-Europeans. The Immigration Act of 1924 strictly limited immigration into the country, and it was specifically intended to restrict the immigration of both nonwhites and Jews.

    Once again, nationalism, aka fascism, has risen its ugly head in America, in European nations, and in some other countries around the world. The fight of good people against ignorance, the fears that sprout from it, the hate which then blossoms, culminating in the bitter toxic fruit of evil, senseless brutalities and deaths, is a constant, never-ending battle we fear, but it is a battle from which we must never shrink.

    In this era, the likes of Toxic Trump and Marginalized Greene have become the face of the new “America First” fascist movement built up over the last four decades by the GOP, Reich-wing plutocrats, demagogues, and media. But, as with Lindbergh, the American people gradually come to recognize their dysfunctional poison and reject it. Most Americans understand, accept, and appreciate that the enduring strength of America is that we are a nation of immigrants and multiculturalism, a “melting pot” where the best ideas rise to the top, and superficial differences are meaningless in the face of our common humanity and purpose. Most Americans want competent leaders who speak truth, who strive to unite, who are not corrupt, who care about them. So, it should come as no surprise that President Biden is already receiving high marks from the public, while Toxic Trump never managed to rise above even a 50% approval rating. To conclude where begun, the following quotes are submitted for further reflection:

    “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” ~ George Santayana
    “History doesn’t repeat itself. But it does rhyme. ~ Mark Twain
    “That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history.” ~ Aldous Huxley
    “If men could learn from history, what lessons it might teach us! But passion and party blind our eyes, and the light which experience gives us is a lantern on the stern which shines only on the waves behind.” ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge

  10. “Foghorn Leghorn” Kennedy needs to be voted out in Louisiana. I’m from Louisiana and he is an embarrassment.

    1. That is oh so very accurate. That’s exactly their moderns era strategy. Hopefully more folks will realize this.

    2. When noone votes for you, steal thats what Obiden did. Im from Georgia no way did the dems win. They cheated with Abrams the chocolate sea witch from little mermaid.
