  • Phony 'Conservative' Scarborough Makes Case AGAINST Overturning Roe

    Joe Scarborough likes to tout himself as a conservative. But on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough actually made the case against overturning Roe v. Wade in the Mississippi case now before the Supreme Court. Scarborough repeatedly cited opinion polls showing most Americans oppose overturning Roe, as if that is supposed to guide the Court. He also said that the Court should bear in mind that we are a "constitutional republic." Right! And the Constitution has carefully delineated the separation of powers in a way designed to protect the Court from the passions of the day! Get the rest of the story...
  • Seething Scarborough: Dems Must Overturn Filibuster for 'Voting Rights'—'No Excuses!'

    Joe Scarborough's leftward lurch continues apace. We've reported Scarborough's support for a variety of liberal positions, with a particular emphasis on what the Democrats euphemistically call their "voting rights" bill. Last month, we documented Scarborough analogizing Republican opposition to the bill to George Wallace standing in the schoolhouse door. On Thursday's Morning Joe, Scarborough took it a step further. He didn't merely urge Democrats to abolish the filibuster regarding "voting rights" [and "civil rights']. A seething Scarborough repeatedly insisted that there is "no excuse" for Democrats not doing so.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Joe Scarborough Claims GOP’s ‘Extreme Members’ Will Soon Be ‘Dominating’ The House

    Political Insider ^ | 11/18/2021 | John Hanson
    On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough cited a report that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had to bring peace between the members of his caucus “who are closely aligned with former President Donald Trump” and more moderate GOP members who joined the Democrats in passing the recent infrastructure spending package. The “extreme” members, to Scarborough’s thinking, are those who opposed Biden’s $1.2 trillion ‘infrastructure’ bill. Scarborough made these comments on his program “Morning Joe.” Scarborough said McCarthy “sacrificed his political soul to be Speaker of the House” which in turn meant losing the respect of former President Donald Trump." The “Morning...
  • Scarborough Whistles Past Biden's Pitiful Poll Numbers

    During Donald Trump's presidency, Joe Scarborough's favorite parlor game was to trumpet every dip in the president's poll numbers. But back in August, when Biden's numbers started to slide, Scarborough went strangely silent, prompting us to ask Scarborough: "Cat got your tongue?" Now, Biden's poll numbers have gotten so bad that even dead-enders like Scarborough can no longer ignore them. On Monday's Morning Joe, Scarborough was thus forced to acknowledge the latest bad news, and do his best to whistle past them. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Morning Joe on Rittenhouse: 'Extraordinarily Difficult for the Prosecution'

    Much as the liberal media might celebrate the conviction of Kyle Rittenhouse — someone, as our Curtis Houck has documented, they have tried to brand as a white-supremacist vigilante — the MSM is grudgingly having to admit that conviction could be unlikely. Friday, back on Morning Joe, Scarborough and former prosecutor Charles Coleman used the same term—"uphill battle"—to portray the prosecution's predicament. Coleman said that the defense should be "feeling pretty good" going into closing arguments. And Scarborough capped the bad news for those calling for a Rittenhouse conviction by saying that things are "going to be extraordinarily difficult for...

    Will Jeff Bezos proclaim himself "President of Prime America?" Or will it be Elon Musk, issuing an edict anointing himself "Emperor of Teslamerica?" Morning Joe was baying for Steve Bannon's blood this morning, demanding that the Justice Department prosecute him after the House held him in criminal contempt for refusing to testify before the January 6th committee. Joe Scarborough took things to an outlandish extreme, predicting this dire consequence if the DoJ doesn't prosecute Bannon and other Trump allies who might refuse to comply with congressional subpoenas to testify: "I swear to God: 10, 15 years from now, if people...

    Joe Scarborough didn't name names. He wants, after all, to be able to walk through the MSNBC cafeteria without being hit in the back of the head with a kale-quinoa salad. But the Morning Joe host did take repeated shots this morning at MSNBC colleagues like Nicolle Wallace and Joy Reid who last night blamed Terry McAuliffe's loss on Glenn Youngkin focusing on Critical Race Theory even though, they claimed, it isn't "real." Scarborough's point was that even if CRT isn't being explicitly taught in public schools, wokeism is indeed present, has angered many parents, and is hurting Democrats at...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday reacted to Republican Glenn Youngkin defeating Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia’s gubernatorial race. Scarborough said what played out in Tuesday’s election was Democrats over-emphasizing “wokeism.” He urged Democrats “to come face to face with this issue of wokeism” if they want future success in elections.

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Friday sounded off on four aides for former President Donald Trump being subpoenaed by the select committee in charge of investigating the riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. Trump has said he would invoke executive privilege if he were subpoenaed in the investigation. Scarborough warned Trump that “there is no executive privilege for treason” nor sedition.

    On Wednesday, Morning Joe — in the persons of Joe Scarborough, Richard Haass, Anne Gearan, and Willie Geist — tore into Biden's mishandling of the cancellation of Australia's submarine-building contract with France in favor of one with the US. But Biden had one, lonely, backer: Mika Brzezinski. She piped up throughout the long segment, doing her best to defend Biden. Brzezinski expressed doubt as to whether the US, UK, and Australia really went behind France's back. She said the situation isn't "black and white"—to which Scarborough shot back, "it is black and white." She suggested France should have known there...

    "Gen. Li, if we're going to attack, I'm going to call you ahead of time. It's not going to be a surprise." -- Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley to Chinese counterpart, as reported by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. Eddie Glaude Jr. Mika Brzezinski Joe Scarborough MSNBC Morning Joe 9-16-21That is, by far, the most serious charge against Milley the media have highlighted from Woodward and Costa in their forthcoming book, Peril. Yet in defending Milley on Morning Joe today, Joe Scarborough outrageously suppressed any mention of that allegation. Instead of admitting that Milley allegedly agreed to tip off China...

    After the Labor Day weekend, Joe Scarborough sat on the set of "Morning Joe" and told the Democrats that to succeed in the midterms, it was essential that they somehow repeal "40 years of Reaganism" by passing a massive expansion of government disguised as an "infrastructure" package. "I remember hearing Biden's speech back in April and was shocked by how sweeping it was for this supposed moderate guy from Delaware," Scarborough proclaimed. "This will reverse 40 years of Reaganism, just like Ronald Reagan reversed 45 years of Roosevelt's New Deal." Now, believers in Reaganism would look at the last five...

    Joe was back Tuesday after a long break from the show, and his first thought was, gosh am I proud of America! You almost wondered if he would break into song... "I’m really proud of what I’ve seen from my country, from America over the past few weeks." Scarborough sounded like he was reading a canned statement, and he couldn't summon a word of blame for Biden. It was particularly odious of Scarborough to exploit the memory of 9/11—and the "let's roll" heroes of United Airlines Flight 93 that crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania—in an attempt to shift the onus from...

    Morning Joe: Afghanistan Headlines Will ‘Fade,’ Voters Will ‘Credit’ Biden Kyle Drennen August 26th, 2021 On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Morning Joe was hoping that the Afghanistan catastrophe would “fade from the headlines” just in time for President Biden and the Democratic Party to make a political comeback before the 2022 midterm elections. The liberal wish-casting even went so far as to suggest “more and more people are going to agree with what he did” and eventually give him “credit” for the disastrous foreign policy failure. “Mika, you know, as you look at those numbers and you look at the numbers right...

    Joe "America is Back" Biden will forever be remembered for his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. But the disgraced and disgraceful president can count on support from at least some dead-enders in the liberal media. Count Joe Scarborough among them. On Wednesday's Morning Joe, Scarborough expressed support for Biden's decision not to extend the August 31st deadline for evacuating American citizens and Afghan allies from Afghanistan. In doing so, he tacitly acknowledged that not only Afghan allies, but Americans, will be left behind, saying he wants to get out every American "that we can get out."Get the rest of the story...

    Earlier this week, with Joe Scarborough away from Morning Joe, we noted Mika Brzezinski imitating one of his repetitious rants. She accused people dubious about masks/vaccines of belonging to a "death cult." Brzezinski deployed the "death cult" phrase no fewer than eight times during her spiel. Joe, back this morning, bought into Mika's "death cult" trope. Scarborough was responding to a report from NBC's Kerry Sanders, who said that a Collier County [Naples area] mom who was sending her children to school without masks was doing so because "we believe our faith will protect us." That set Scarborough off. Scarborough...

    Was Joe Scarborough ever a good ol' Southern boy, as he still likes to portray himself? In any case, that persona has definitively disappeared. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough exposed himself as the worst kind of condescending Upper West Side snob. The show devoted much of its opening segment to attacking Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over his Covid stance. At one point, after playing a clip of DeSantis's remarks on the subject, Scarborough referenced an ignorant Simpsons character, mocking: "I mean, who was he talking to? Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel?"Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    As soon as a promising Republican presidential contender arises, the liberal media sets to work whacking him down. And so it was on today's Morning Joe, which devoted a long segment to the rise of Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, whom a recent presidential preference poll among conservatives showed edging ahead of Donald Trump. The thrust of the segment was that DeSantis offers many of Trump's advantages, but without his drawbacks. But Scarborough found the most pejorative way of putting it, saying: "We're going from the political heroin to the political methadone."Get the rest of the story and view the...

    VIDEOONE, just ONE very dubious poll comes out showing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with more support from conservatives than President Donald Trump. As revealed by Brian Craig, co-host of the Steve Kane Show, this poll is very obviously a psyops attempt to pathetically try to produce a rift between Trump and Desantis. Of course, this absurd poll is now being hyped in a big way by "conservatives" who never really liked Trump as well as the usual suspects such as the Morning Joe crew who joyously leaped upon this PHONY poll like a starving dog snapping at raw meat as...
