Via Balloon Juice, Greg Greewald, who has been shilling for Putin, gets lambasted by his own words.

-----------------------------------------

A low-wattage member of the Party of Stupid has been forced to retract a QAnon-worthy claim:

A Nebraska state lawmaker apologized on Monday after he publicly cited a persistent but debunked rumor alleging that schools are placing litter boxes in school bathrooms to accommodate children who self-identify as cats.

Sen. Bruce Bostelman, a conservative Republican, repeated the false claim during a public, televised debate on a bill intended to help school children who have behavioral problems

Bad news for the feed stores: Ivermectin, a drug favored by the Thwarted Thief of Democracy and his slavish acolytes, has been proven to be worth bupkis:

The antiparasitic drug ivermectin did not reduce the risk of being hospitalized with COVID-19, according to a large study published Wednesday in The New England Journal of Medicine.

Ivermectin was popularized as an alternative COVID-19 treatment despite a lack of strong evidence it helps. The recent study is among the largest that has failed to show a benefit.

In the study, researchers in Brazil compared more than 1,300 patients, some given ivermectin and others given a placebo, and found no difference between the groups.

Not that it will make a bit of difference to the MAGA crowd. Their Traitor-in-Chief has endorsed taking horse dewormer and that's all that matters to them.

A noted lunatic and lover of Putin is finding out that thumbing his nose at the courts doesn't work very well:

A Superior Court judge on Wednesday found conspiracy theorist and Infowars host Alex Jones in contempt of court and imposed a fine of up to $50,000 a day for what she called his “willful” violation of her orders that he submit to questioning at a deposition by families of victims of the Sandy Hook School killings.

After a series of delays, Jones failed to comply last week with repeated orders by Barbara Bellis that he appear for a deposition on March 23 and 24 in Austin, Texas, where his internet broadcasting company is located. Relatives of the children murdered in the 2012 school shooting in Newtown have been trying for years to question him in connection with their suit filed in response to his broadcast assertions that the shootings were a hoax.

Jones claimed he was unable to sit for the deposition because of a health condition that is aggravated by stress. But Bellis said medical explanations by two of Jones’ physicians were unconvincing. She said there is evidence that, even though Jones’ legal team said he was at home under medical care, he actually was broadcasting during the times the depositions had been scheduled and told his audience his condition was caused by a sinus blockage.

Not smart to claim that one is too sick to talk to lawyers but then broadcasts his stupid show to his wet-brained listeners.

Part of me wants to see Alex Jones flee the country to avoid appearing in court where he knows he's going to get his lumpy assface slapped by every parent he demonized.

The other part of me wants to see Alex Jones dragged by foot in handcuffs from Texas to Connecticut. Maybe by the time he reaches the courthouse, he'll have slimmed up through natural exercise instead of his psycho-meds.

Yeah, about Ivermectin, there are a few to date unreported side effects...

I don't listen to Mr. Jones as a matter of pride, after all, I'm not that stupid. From what I gather from his publicity is that he is crazy but just crazy enough to monetize his insanity. Whatever pays the bills I guess. But here, people have gathered to make him explain his craziness, and that must really scare the shit out of him. No crazy person wants to be grilled on their beliefs, they know it won't make sense to an outsider. He must be really sweating any deposition in person where he can't control the narrative. I would pity him if he wasn't such a flaming asshole.
