Politicizing the Pulpit

Fox News exploits Colin Powell’s death as excuse to push dangerous misinfo

By Vinnie Longobardo
  • It’s hard to imagine Fox News sinking even lower than its previous valleys of mendacious and harmful anti-vaccine propaganda, but their coverage of the death of former Secretary of State and former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell from complications related to COVID-19 reaches a new depth of deceptive agenda-pushing in their political advocacy masquerading as news commentary.
  • General Powell, you see, died of the COVID complications despite being fully vaccinated against the virus, a fact that the talking heads on Fox News used to ramp up their false controversy of casting doubt on the safety and efficacy of the vaccine effort and play into the hands of their anti-vaxxer MAGA viewers.

Another phony Republican campaign about a fake ‘issue’

By Paul Waldman
  • In theory, campaigns are supposed to be about what happens after they’re over: Candidates debate issues and present agendas, voters decide which person and program they prefer, and then the one who wins has to follow through and deliver what they promised.
  • That’s not the case with every campaign — sometimes Republicans find political benefit in an issue that’s on their actual agenda, like cutting taxes — but when they dash to the front of an angry mob, everyone knows what’s going on.

Colin Powell Takes Fauci Death Poke, Then Dies

By Tiffany Layne

The following article, Colin Powell Takes Fauci Death Poke, Then Dies, was first published on The Black Sphere.

Colin Powell, Kevin Jackson

Growing up, Colin Powell was a household name. I remember my parents wishing he would run for President. Surely, his leadership far out-performed that of Bush, Clinton, and Obama combined. And while he never aspired to the Oval Office, Powell’s influence helped shape more than one administration. A true trailblazer, Powell was the nation’s first

Analysis: The Colin Powell Republican no longer exists in the Republican Party

  • , his 25-year-old pledge to transform the Republican Party into a diverse coalition organized around opportunity and social welfare seems deeply quaint -- a hope unrealized as the GOP moved well beyond the extreme bounds of what even Powell could have envisaged two-plus decades ago.
  • Powell's personal journey from potential -- and much-coveted -- Republican presidential candidate in the mid-1990s to pariah within the Trump-ified GOP tells the story of how the party went from one that recognized the changing face of America and the need to adapt its policies as a result to one organized around the often-intolerant views of a single man who, it's worth noting, spent less time as a Republican than Powell did.

Matt Couch Urges ‘Self-Inoculation’ Instead of Vaccinations Without Realizing They’re Basically the Same Thing

By Kyle Mantyla
  • Right-wing activist Matt Couch appeared on “The Todd Coconato Show” last week, where he declared that rather than getting vaccinated, wearing masks, and taking steps to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, people should be intentionally exposing themselves to the virus as a form of “self-inoculation.”
  • So, when you hear what our founders did to win the Revolutionary War, and you realize that they self-inoculated—both Benedict Arnold and Benjamin Franklin, they basically expressed fears that the virus would be the Army’s ultimate downfall if they didn’t do the self-inoculation—and they listened to smart people.

All politics isn’t local anymore

By Stuart Rothenberg
  • Virginia has been trending Democratic for the last few years — Democrat Joe Biden won it by 10 points in 2020, and the GOP nominee for president has not carried the state since 2004 — but the party in the White House invariably has had trouble in Virginia’s gubernatorial contests, which occur during off, off years (that is, the year after a presidential election).
  • McAuliffe has had problems energizing Democrats, which is why he has major national Democratic figures like former President Barack Obama, first lady Jill Biden, and former Georgia legislator Stacey Abrams coming into the state to give his candidacy a boost and to make the argument to suburban and black voters in the commonwealth that Youngkin is merely a smooth-talking stand-in for Trump.

Tyranny: Canadian Pastor Forced by Gov’t to Repeat ‘Medical Experts’ from the Pulpit

Biden Made a Promise to End Discrimination Against Puerto Ricans. He’s About to Break It.

By Neil Weare
  • Indeed, in an awkward statement issued just hours before the Justice Department filed its brief, now-President Biden reiterated political promises he had made during the campaign to emphasize that citizens in the territories “should be able to receive SSI benefits, just like their fellow Americans in all 50 states and Washington D.C.”
  • All this might lead you to think that by the time the Supreme Court takes up oral argument in Vaello-Madero on November 9 th, or certainly by the time it rules sometime next year, that Biden and congressional Democrats may have already extended SSI benefits to Puerto Rico.

Exalted Chinese Murder Suspect Dies After a Week on the Run

By Justin Rohrlich
Pinghai County People’s Government

A Chinese fugitive accused of killing two people over a land dispute is dead after more than a week on the lam, according to police in the city of Putian, CNN reported. Suspect Ou Jinzhong, 55, died by suicide while being arrested Monday, Putianese authorities claimed. Ou allegedly attacked his neighbors with a knife last Thursday in the coastal village where they lived, killing a 78-year-old man and his daughter-in-law, and injuring the man’s wife, grandson, and great-grandson. He is reported to have triggered an outpouring of sympathy on Chinese social media, with many supporters seeming to view him as an “ordinary man pushed to the brink of despair over a years-long housing dispute,” according to CNN, which said his legend grew after reports emerged that Ou had previously saved a young boy from drowning and rescued two stranded dolphins in 2008. Police said Ou was taken to a hospital after his suicide attempt but died despite attempts to revive him. Police searchers found Ou hiding in a cave, where they arrested him.

Bengals Guard Jackson Carman: That Was Eminem’s Spaghetti I Vomited on Field During Detroit Game

By Kana Ruhalter
YouTube

It’s fair to say any pro footballer, upon entering the field, embodies the rapper Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself”: Palms sweaty, knees weak, arms heavy. But the line came true for Cincinnati Bengals guard Jackson Carman after he apparently followed through on a Twitter recommendation of where to eat. According to the Detroit Metro Times, Carman vomited on the field at Ford Field during the Bengals vs. Lions game Sunday, and it was all thanks to Mom’s Spaghetti, Eminem’s new restaurant in Detroit. “No. 79 Jackson Carman has been taken into the locker room with an illness. His return is questionable,” the official Bengals account tweeted after the episode. Carman allegedly was able to walk himself to the players’ medical tent—one could say that on the surface, he looked calm and ready—but he updated his fans via Twitter, saying that he “would not recommend eating Moms spaghetti when you visit Detroit.”

By Tim Requarth
  • (While it’s unclear if Powell had received a booster, and one might reasonably quibble about whether, given his age, he may need a booster to count “fully vaccinated,” his illness, along with being 84, made him vulnerable to COVID either way) And while we don’t know the specifics of Powell’s medical chart, he would have been at heightened risk even if his cancer was in remission.
  • “Multiple myeloma is not curable, so while he may (or may not) have been on active treatment, his disease, and his age, made him more vulnerable to breakthrough infection, complications and death,” Dr. Gwen Nichols, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s chief medical officer who authored the studies I’ve linked to in this paragraph.

Tucker Carlson, Joe Rogan and the Proud Boys: How the fragility of the male ego fuels the far-right
