Jeff Bezos was congratulated by establishment political figures on the left and right for exposing what some have called an attempt to blackmail him by the National Enquirer.
Bezos had been threatening a lawsuit against the Enquirer for publishing his embarrassing text messages to his mistress. If Bezos’ transcripts of emails with the Enquirer’s owners are to be believed, it seems as if they threatened to release even more of Bezos’ lewd text messages if he didn’t cease and desist with his lawsuit.
Bezos, under the impression that he was being blackmailed, released the emails. Now it remains to be seen if more personal messages and photos associated with the billionaire oligarch will be released.
If not, the Amazon billionaire will have largely succeeded in what many have called an effort by a wealthy and influential individual to shut down embarrassing press coverage. Bezos claimed in his expose of the emails that pictures of his genitalia are unnewsworthy and thus worthy of legal sanctions should they be published.
However, at one point Bezos was far less amenable to the idea that wealthy individuals should be able to shut down embarrassing news coverage.
The oligarch went on the record in 2016 in defense of the now-defunct media platform Gawker, which was at the time being sued by Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel and Hulk Hogan. Gawker had outed Thiel as a gay man and exposed a sex tape of the former WWE superstar.
At the time, Bezos sided with Gawker, stating that “the best defense against speech that you don’t like about yourself as a public figure is to develop a thick skin.”
The lawsuit against Gawker was ultimately successful, sending the company out of business.
Bezos spoke in the now completely hypocritical remarks at a tech conference in California:
“As a public figure, the best defense you have against… speech that you don’t like, is to have a thick skin.”
Interestingly, it seems that Bezos’ perspective on supposed media defamation has shifted completely when it targets himself, and more broadly, the progressive left.
BREAKING: Trump Reveals Mitch McConnell BEGGED For His Endorsement in Scathing Takedown Statement
Possibly the most brutal takedown since Jeb Bush.
“The Republican Party can never again be respected or strong with political ‘leaders’ like Sen. Mitch McConnell at its helm.”
This was the powerful first sentence of former President Donald Trump’s most recent incredible and high energy press statement released Tuesday afternoon. The complete disavowal and humiliation of McConnell comes to no surprise after the supposedly Republican Senate Minority Leader backstabbed President Trump multiple times after the November 4th election. More recently, McConnell has been focusing on appeasing his Democratic friends and repudiating Trump time and time again, consistently referring to Trump as a “disgrace” and mocking Trump supporters as insurrectionists.
In an almost reminiscent 2016 Candidate Trump fashion, the 45th President of the United States responded to McConnell’s treachery by verbally tearing him apart, limb by limb:
“Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again.”
Big League Politics has previously reported on Minority Traitor McConnell quite a number of times this past week as he continues to slander Donald Trump and the Republican voter base. McConnell encouraged the unconstitutional impeachment trial of now private citizen Trump, he has betrayed his own voter base who now overwhelming disapproves of him, he denounced Trump and his supporters as “conspiracy theorists” and “criminals“, and McConnell has also recently announced that he will attempt to prevent future pro-MAGA Republican candidates from running.
Read the full statement here:
Trump has repeatedly said, even before he got involved in politics, that loyalty is one of the most important things to him. When someone is disloyal to Trump he sees it as a “great act of horror” and has also publicly stated: “I love getting even with people.”
Trump also announced in his press release that he will support candidates in a primary against McConnell and any Republican politicians that betrayed him and the MAGA movement.
“someday i’d like to lose everything… to see who’s loyal and who’s not loyal”

Interestingly enough, Trump also asserted that McConnell “begged” for Trump’s endorsement, and Trump is the only reason McConnell had any chance at winning reelection. As Trump put it:
He went from one point down to 20 points up, and won. How quickly he forgets. Without my endorsement, McConnell would have lost, and lost badly. Now, his numbers are lower than ever before, he is destroying the Republican side of the Senate, and in so doing, seriously hurting our Country.
While 2026 (the year McConnell will be up for reelection) seems relatively far out, Donald Trump affirms he’ll be there. The lion awaits patiently, vengefully, and lacks any remorse for the jackals that betrayed him.
