“Donald Trump is threatening to sue CNN for defamation if the network doesn’t stop using the phrase “the big lie” or saying that Trump is lying about the results of the 2020 election. He sent the network a cease and desist letter along with the threat, but there is absolutely no danger of Trump actually filing a lawsuit against the media outlet, and Farron Cousins explains why that’ll never happen.

An incredibly agitated. Donald Trump has had his people send cease and desist letters to see it in demanding that they no longer use the phrase, the big lie. And also when talking about Donald Trump’s claims about the 20, 20 election, you’re not allowed to say that he’s lying or he may Sue you for defamation. The cease desist letter says, so Trump post posed the notice, uh, from his, you know, office of the president of 45th, blah, blah, blah. So this is what he said in his statement. I have notified CNN of my intent to file a lawsuit over their repeated defamatory statements against me. I will also be commencing actions against other media outlets who have defamed me and defrauded the public regarding the overwhelming evidence of fraud throughout the 2020 election. So that was the statement he put out to his supporter saying, Hey, I’m about to Sue everybody because they’re ignoring this evidence that I continuously refused to provide. Cuz it doesn’t exist. Here is from the letter sent to CNN accordingly. I hereby demand on behalf of president Donald Trump that CNN won immediately take down the false and defamatory publications. Two immediately issue, a full and fair retraction of the statements identified herein as a, in as conspicuous manner as they were originally published. And three immediately cease and desist from its continued use of big lie and lying. When describing president Trump’s suggested subjective belief regarding the integrity of the 2020 election. Oh belief about the 2020 election.
Doesn’t say facts about the 2020. It doesn’t say evidence about the 2020. It says, this is his belief about the 2020 election and a belief can’t be a lie. Oh buddy. You just absolutely ruined all of your other legal defenses in any January 6th related case that may come against you. That’s what that statement right there does that. Will I promise you if we’ve got good prosecutors, they will use that against them. Like right here, you said it’s a subjective belief, a subjective belief that the election was stolen, which means you don’t have evidence to back it up. Which means you’re probably guilty if they do bring criminal charges against you. But let’s talk about the defamation lawsuits. I have been one of those people, of course, that has used the phrase, the big lie, both here and over at ring of fire. And on other shows I’ve appeared on I’ve repeatedly said that you were lying about the 2020 election. So if you are so inclined, bring it on. And I’m sure CNN and literally every other outlet out there big and small is
Saying the same thing. Like dude, bring it on because as Donald Trump is well aware, which is why he’ll never Sue anybody. If you file a lawsuit, we get to go to discovery. We get to get our hands on all of those same documents that the January 6th committee gets their hands on. And that’s gonna be fun for everyone involved, not to mention the fact that you are clearly lying about all of this, as I said, and as I have repeatedly said, you, your lawyers, your friends like Mike Linde, you have been given every opportunity on this planet to present your evidence that the 2020 election was stolen. And every time you have been presented with that opportunity, you have failed to do so because the evidence doesn’t exist. You are lying to the public. You are spreading the big lie. And if you wanna Sue any of us, bring it on because not only are we gonna hammer your in discovery, but then we’re gonna hit you with a slap suit for millions and millions of dollars and live happily ever after. So bring it on because this is absolutely the kind of thing that slap suits were designed to prevent. So you will be the one paying out millions of dollars and all of us who get sued. If you ever have the guts to file the suits, we are gonna be laughing all the way to the bank. So bring it on.”

“Mark McCloskey, a Republican senate candidate in Missouri and the man who, with his wife, became infamous for pointing guns at protesters on his street, has made a new enemy: 90’s rapper Vanilla Ice. In a Twitter post this past week, McCloskey posted an image that appeared to show that Ice would be appearing at an event in support of the candidate, forcing Vanilla Ice to hit back and say that he isn’t appearing with him and doesn’t support him. Farron Cousins unpacks all the drama surrounding this campaign.
*This transcript was auto-generated. Please excuse any typos.
Mark McCloskey won half of the infamous St. Louis gun couple, you know, the ones who were famously shown in those photographs, pointing their guns at protestors who were simply walking by their house. McCloskey of course became a Republican hero. After that spoke at the RNC convention in 2020. And now of course he thinks he can ride that infamy into a Senate seat in the state of Missouri. Unfortunately from McCloskey, his, uh, campaign keeps making a lot of, well, how can we say egregious errors? And this past week is no exception. His campaign sent out a tweet with a graphic that said team McCloskey, green county, July 31st, featuring vanilla ice and ying yang twins. Join team McCloskey at the Ozark empire far on July 31st. And it has McCloskey for Senate at the bottom there. Um, so you see this and what’s your initial reaction? Oh, wow. He’s being endorsed by, by vanilla ice. How, how kind of pathetic, but it turns out it’s even more pathetic than that because he is not being endorsed by by vanilla ice vanilla ice is not team McCloskey. As McCloskey clearly claimed in this image MCL, uh, uh, what happened is that vanilla ice was just going to be performing at that at that fair, like on a different day, not even at the same time as McCloskey, he wasn’t doing an event with him. They were just both gonna be at the same fair on different days.
So vanilla ICE’s people. Rob van Winkle, um, is his real name. They had to release a statement here. It is. According to the Kansas city star, it says vanilla ice wants his fans to know that he is not affiliated with long shot Republican us Senate candidate, mark McCloskey, after a political ad, featuring the artist’s name and photograph was promoted by the campaign on Thursday in a statement Thursday evening, managers for vanilla ice said the rapper did not give approval for his show to be coupled with the political ad McCloskey. And his attorney, according to raw story said, his campaign was quote, merely saying that we’re going to be there at a time when they’re going to be there, even though they were not there at the same time. So that ad again, love lovely little ad here says no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no McCloskey. And his attorney is like, no, no, no, no. We, we just clearly obviously saying that we’re gonna be there at the same time. Even though we know we’re not even gonna be there at the same time. So, you know, we’re not, uh, not trying to do anything, uh, illegal here and claim that we’re getting his endorsement in any way, which I don’t know if it’s illegal or not, but that is exactly what you did, right?
This was, was a gross misrepresentation. Mark McCloskey is a lawyer. He is a lawyer. He’s been a very successful lawyer by the way, his wife, I also believe is a lawyer. So they know, they know you cannot do stuff like this. They knew exactly what they were doing, but the language that they used, I’ll give them this, in that political ad. It doesn’t say that vanilla ice is team McCloskey. It just says team McCloskey, featuring vanilla ice and ying yang twins. So there is a bit of a gray area to where I don’t think if vanilla ice wanted to Sue them for this. I do not think he could be successful, but this is about as deceptive as it comes, but also no, no offense to, uh, Mr. Vanilla ice here also kind of pathetic I’m sorry, but it is like, okay, all right. What do we wanna do to get people to think we’re hip and cool. Hey, how about vanilla ice? Right? Who doesn’t love ice, ice baby. A ninja wrap from the second ninja turtles movie. Right? Did you really think this was gonna get you folks? that’s what’s so funny to me it’s like, oh yeah. We’re to we’re totally gonna get people because we got, we got vanilla, right? I mean, we’re in and even vanilla ice was like, dude, get the hell away. I want nothing to do with this. So there it is. That’s the kind of MC uh, of campaign that McCloskey is running. And, uh, hopefully it’s just as humiliating as this particular instance also was for the McCloskey team.”
What it must be like, to be dissed by Vanilla Ice…

“Donald Trump is clearly freaking out about the news that the DOJ is targeting him in their ongoing investigation into the fake elector scheme, and he appears to be workshopping his legal defense in case he gets indicted. Trump is trying to publicly claim that he was just acting in his official duties as President when all the schemes unfolded, which legal experts tell us could be the only possible defense that might let him avoid prison, if he gets indicted. Farron Cousins explains what’s happening.
*This transcript was auto-generated. Please excuse any typos.
So news broke this week. Of course, I’m sure everybody’s seen it by this point that yes, the department of justice is in fact targeting Donald Trump, uh, in their ongoing investigation. Mark Short, Mike Pence’s, former chief of staff has already talked to the grand jury last week. You have other folks that have actually cooperated with the January 6th committee that are now cooperating. Also with the DOJ investigation. Cassidy Hutchinson is one of them that was announced late on Wednesday. So the investigation is ticking up. Things are looking bad for Donald Trump, especially with that treasure trove of emails released from the New York times. That directly ties all of Trump’s lawyers and possibly Trump himself into the fake elector scheme. So naturally you would expect Donald Trump to have a meltdown and release some kind of idiotic statement, trying to downplay what’s happening. And we got it. Donald Trump on Tuesday evening send out a series of, uh, truths on truth social.
And this is what he had to say. Oh, actually, before I even tell you what he had to say, let me put it this way. You gotta understand the framing here. What Trump is about to do in this statement. I’m gonna read he’s testing out his legal defense, right? He’s workshopping it. He’s putting it out there in the ether so that if he ends up going to trial for, you know, being indicted, he can say, well, look, I’ve been saying this for a long time. This has been my, my rationale the whole time. So anyway, having said that, here is this statement. Bear with me folks. It’s a long, crazy one. Just more disinformation by the Democrats. Like the Russia, Russia, Russia, scam, impeachment, hos number one, impeachment hoax, number two, the long running Mueller report, which ended in no collusion and so much more.
Now that we have found the answers to these crooked election changing events. Why is the justice department not prosecuting those responsible plenty of time left people forget. This is all about a rigged and stolen election, but rather than go after the people that rigged and stole it, they go after the people that are seeking honesty and truth and have freedom of speech and many other defenses on their side justice department should look at the crime of the century. Evidence is massive and irrefutable. He continues. The Georgia phone calls were perfect. Many people and lawyers on both sides were knowingly on the one call. I assume the call was taped. There was zero complaints or angry. How dare you charges made during the call and no hangups by anyone aggrieved or insulted at what was said? They were perfect calls. I was just doing my job as president and seeking fairness in the truth.
The election was rigged and stolen. The election was not rigged. It was not stolen. Joe Biden won legitimately Donald Trump lost legitimately. And the reason I have to say that is because if we don’t point that out, out in every single video that we talk about it, uh, YouTube will hit you for that and put a strike on it. So just so everybody knows in case there’s anything not clear, I’m not saying that the election was stolen. Those were, uh, quotes from Donald Trump. The election was not stolen. He’s a moron. Let’s dissect it. It’s that last statement, right? Actually, I guess second to last, cuz his last statement was the election was rigged and stolen. No one, I was just doing my job as president and seeking fairness in the truth. I was just doing my job. Okay. So, so we’re going with the old Nuremberg defense.
Aren’t we, I was just following orders here, but no, listen, the reason that line is important and the reason he included it is because should he be indicted, right? Should he stand before a jury? The only possible defense he could have according to legal experts is to successfully have his legal team argue that he was just fulfilling his job as president to make sure everything was on the level. You know, we don’t want any discrepancies. We wanna make sure this was all legit. I’m doing my job. I’m doing my due diligence by ordering all these things to happen.”
It was clear long before the 2020 election, that they were pulling this stunt…
They were making the claim of a “stolen election”, well before the election even took place…They were aggressively planting this idea into the public consciousness…and targeting the gullable…and the assholes who don’t care it’s a blatant lie, but just want to seize control of the country, forcing the masses into compliance at gunpoint.
It’s always been crystal clear what they were doing…They planned on riling up the aggressive, violent religious fringe, and having them overrun the entire political system…and everybody else, who is not them.
Nothing…absolutely nothing, about the actual election process unfolding before our eyes, indicated that Donald Trump was being cheated against in any way.
It was entirely predictable, to any honest person with common sense, that Trump had a very high likelihood of losing the 2020 election.
And yet…way, way out, long before the election…Trump was already claiming the election had been stolen…
…I think he [and his clan] knew…he was very likely to lose…and they were just trying to alter the inevitable.
Of course…Trump would have never vacated the office “won in a stolen election”, had he somehow managed to win a second term…
…That would have been a curious speech, walking back the whole “stolen election” narrative.
They lied…They were lying all along.
