“Pouring gas and lighting fires”
Peter Navarro, the far right extremist who has become one of President Donald Trump’s top White House advisors, is being excoriated for “inciting insurrection the morning after Trump was impeached,” after he peddled dangerous lies on Fox News Thursday morning (video below).
“The Democratic Party did violence to this country by attacking a president who I believe was legally elected on November 3,” Navarro told Fox News Business’ Maria Bartiromo, a top Trump devotee. “If the election were held today he’d be elected again.”
Navarro is technically Trump’s Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, but has taken a role as top Trump defender in the administration.
Both his remarks are false.
“I’ve never been more pissed off at this place and I think there are 74 million Americans out there who voted for President Trump who feel exactly the same way,” Navarro added, ignoring that there are 81 million Americans who voted for Joe Biden.
“I would say to these people on Capitol Hill knock it off, stop this, let the man leave peacefully, with his dignity, he was the greatest jobs president, the greatest trade negotiator we’ve ever had,” Navarro added, all of which is provably false. In fact, during the segment the chyron flashed another disastrous jobs report.
Bartiromo, who did not fact-check or offer any push back, added, “we know there were irregularities in this election.”
Any “irregularities,” if they even exist, were inconsequential, according to the 90 judges who tossed out more than 60 cases filed by Trump, his campaign, and his supporters.
“We know that 70 percent of Trump supporters say that this was rigged,” she added, again ignoring that no facts support the lie that the election was rigged.
“This feels more like Communist China than it does America,” Bartiromo claimed, decrying the crackdown on extremism by multiple social media platforms – extremism that contributed to a violent, armed, deadly insurrection last week.

Many on social media expressed outrage at both Navarro and Bartiromo.
Hey @RealPNavarro a cop died and many others were sent to the hospital. The national guard’s deployed, fortifying the national Capitol cause it was attacked by violent people looking to overthrow trump’s loss because of your Big Lie. Also the economy sucks https://t.co/w5Um22xFPX

If you put Peter Navarro on TV, you're delivering poison. He's never spoken without lying (including about economics). https://t.co/VQBmvgAKPT

Love how @RealPNavarro just wants Democrats to let trump “leave in peace” after trump sent people to the Capitol who attacked them to try to stop his election loss from being certified. It’s too late for trump to leave in peace because people died in the violent coup attempt Pete

TODAY, Trump trade adviser Navarro continues the assault on fact, math, judgment of the courts (meaning continues assault on the American way), calls impeachment "attacking a president who I believe was legally elected on November 3." unchallenged by Fox business anchor. #sad

The United States Presidency is a fully operational openly anti-American disinformation network running all day every day with the full intention of creating chaos and confusion and overturning a legitimate election and the rule of law and the American government for one sick man

When is @Foxnews investigated for inciting violence? Its toxic mix of lies & demonization of Democrats fueled the Capitol attack. And Murdoch apparently wants more blood & radicalization. Peter Navarro is STILL pushing Trump’s Big election Lie & insanely blames Dems for violence. https://t.co/D1grY60voY

‘Biggest Whopper in History’: Stephen Miller Claims No President Was ‘Dealt a Better Hand on Day One Than Biden’
Former Trump White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller is being mocked and chastised for claiming President Joe Biden inherited the best situation possible.
“No President in history has been dealt a better hand on Day One than President Biden,” Miller, regarded as both a white nationalist and a white supremacist by many, told Fox News Thursday night.
The Trump administration walked into a booming economy and left the Biden administration with a disaster: huge unemployment, an uncontrolled pandemic that had already killed 400,000 people, no actual plan to get coronavirus vaccine shots into Americans’ arms, and a lack of trust and respect around the world.
When Trump took office after President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden unemployment was at 4.7%. When President Joe Biden took office unemployment was at 6.7%.
When Trump left office his approval rating was at 34%. In his four years it never even hit 50%.
The Southern Poverty Law Center last summer added Miller to its list of extremists, noting he “is credited with shaping the racist and draconian immigration policies of President Trump, which include the zero-tolerance policy, also known as family separation, the Muslim ban and ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Miller has also “purged” government agencies of civil servants who are not entirely loyal to his extremist agenda.”
Here’s Miller on “Hannity”:

Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall responded by noting, “it is pretty remarkable that twice in 12 years a Democrat was obliged to take the reins in the midst of the smoldering ruins of a Republican presidency.”
Here’s how others responded to Miller’s lie:

Virus out of control, economy taking a hit, highest unemployment since Obama turned it around last R govt, zero transition between administrations, a divided country.
I think I’ve just witnessed the biggest whopper in history.

Hmm… he inherited:
• a pandemic.
• a crippled economy.
• a predecessor and opposition party who tried for two months to overturn his election and then incited an insurrection to try and stop him from taking office.
I’d say he was dealt among the worst hands of any president.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Again Uses Hitler, Holocaust, and Nazi References in Paranoid Anti-Vaxx Attack on Biden
It was just three weeks ago that U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene apologized to the nation for her Holocaust references, claiming after visiting the Holocaust Museum, “I have made a mistake…the Holocaust is – there’s nothing comparable to it.”
“There are words that I have said and remarks that I have made that I know are offensive,” she said June 14 (photo), to fend off a censure resolution, which Rep. Bradley Schneider (D-IL) decided to not file after her apology.
Three weeks and one day later she threw that apology out, attacking President Joe Biden with Holocaust and Nazi rhetoric.
President Biden earlier on Tuesday declared he will continue to fight the coronavirus pandemic, even if it means going door-to-door to help people get vaccinated.
“We need to go community-by-community, neighborhood-by-neighborhood, and oft times door-to-door, literally knocking on doors” he told America.
Congresswoman Greene late Tuesday afternoon decided to unleash her paranoid, delusional conspiracy theories, attacking President Biden.
“Biden pushing a vaccine that is NOT FDA approved shows covid is a political tool used to control people,” she falsely claimed.
The FDA has issued an Emergency Use Authorization for all the COVID-19 vaccines currently being used in the U.S., and two of those in use have been submitted for final authorization. It’s absolutely false to claim the vaccines are not FDA approved. And it’s absolutely a lie to claim they are being used as a political tool to control people.
“People have a choice,” Greene continued, and that’s when she injected her Holocaust and Nazi references, saying:
“they don’t need your medical brown shirts showing up at their door ordering vaccinations. You can’t force people to be part of the human experiment.”
Hitler’s “Brownshirts” were his original stormtroopers, created to stomp out any opposition in his early days of power. Hitler’s “Nazi doctors conducted as many as 30 different types of experiments on concentration-camp inmates,” PBS has reported. “They performed these studies without the consent of the victims, who suffered indescribable pain, mutilation, permanent disability, or in many cases death as a result.”
In May Greene had said Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s policies to protect vaccinated lawmakers and Capitol Hill staffers and visitors were “exactly” the same as those in Nazi Germany during the Holocaust, when Hitler put millions of Jews and other minorities on trains and slaughtered them in gas chambers, often after forcing them to work in camps as they were starved.
‘I Never Lied’: Kayleigh McEnany Says God Made Her Tell the Truth in the White House Despite Documented Lies
Kayleigh McEnany insisted on Sunday that she never lied as White House press secretary because she believes in God.
While speaking to Turning Point USA’s Young Women’s Leadership Summit, McEnany recalled that she had been asked if she would ever lie to the American people soon after taking the job as press secretary.
“And I said without hesitation, no,” she remarked. “And I never did. As a woman of faith, as a mother of baby Blake, as a person who meticulously prepared at some of the world’s hardest institutions, I never lied. I sourced my information.”
McEnany complained that the press has attacked her by calling her a “liar.”
“Our motto was this: offense only,” she told the crowd. “Because I knew what we were up against. Republicans always get the bad headlines, always get the false stories, always get the lies — if I can use that word — told by the press. There is one standard for Democrats and another for Republicans. And we must be on offense.”
McEnany went on to recount news reports that she claimed had been fabricated to damage former President Donald Trump.
She did not address the litany of lies that were reported by the news media during her tenure as White House press secretary.
In one article alone, Refinery29’s Natalie Gontcharova detailed nearly two dozen of McEnany’s falsehoods.
