The news is no longer about investigative reporting. It’s about protecting some folks and destroying others and shoving a socialist agenda down the collective throats of Americans. Wonder what happened to our country? Thomas Paine made it clear when he said, “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” Too many Americans have abdicated that duty.
Then along came Donald Trump and grassroots Americans came out in droves to vote for him. Why? Because what this blue-collar billionaire said resonated with the people. We were starving for a leader to tell the truth and speak to us as we speak to each other without the politically correct schmutz. And in the United Kingdom, the people voted to exit the European Union (EU) and elected Boris Johnson to do just that knowing he was their best chance for freedom.
In both countries, the elitists are seeking to invalidate the people’s choices. Brexit has been temporarily stopped for Boris Johnson by a vote of Parliament, and in America, the fraudulent attacks on President Trump continue in the effort to destroy him and remove him from office. Impeachment is the left’s latest attack.
The mainstream media is the right arm of the socialist Democrat Party and they sensationalize “Resistance, Russia and Racism,” all to help the socialist democrats destroy our duly elected president. Fox News became the source for truth, but now there are cracks in the veneer of their corporate policies. The viewers have noticed and so has President Trump.
Fox Impeachment Poll
Between October 6th and 8th a poll was done by Fox News and a high percentage of people wanted President Trump impeached and removed. Our president was incensed by the results. The poll showed that 51% of Americans support impeaching President Trump.
In a tweet, he blasted the network for their polling, stating that their pollster “sucks,” and that the network is “much different than it used to be in the good old days.” He tweeted that from the very day he announced he was running for president; he’s never had a good Fox News poll. The NY Post released an analysis that says Fox News misrepresented their poll.
President Trump is right when he says t Fox Network is far from the network it was built to be, and that may be because of their newest board member.
In March 2019, former Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan joined the board of directors of Fox Corporation. Ryan is reportedly urging Fox News to “decisively break” with President Donald Trump, according to a Vanity Fair report documenting the network’s “management bedlam.”
Rupert Murdoch’s son, Lachlan Murdoch, CEO of Fox Corporation, has been pushing to move Fox News to the center, and is already thinking about how to move the network to a post-Trump future. This includes the Wall Street Journal, also owned by the Murdoch’s, which lately seems to have taken a hard turn to the left.
Neo-conservative Ryan has never supported Donald Trump and he is now suggesting to Lachlan Murdoch that Fox should break with the president. Lachlan is holding strategic conversations with Fox executives and anchors about how to prepare for life after Trump.
Paul Ryan, who was the vice-presidential candidate with Willard Romney in 2012, is great friends with this nemesis of our president. Both men are pro-amnesty and pro-free trade. Add to this twosome, Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George, who has consistently denigrated our president.
Romney has twice received endorsements from Donald Trump along with funds for his campaign for president and then for senate. He has betrayed the one who helped him the most. His vilifications of our president please the neo-con Trotskyite crowd who follow the anti-Trump gang.
The three resistance-hero leftists are working together to destroy Donald Trump and those of us who voted for him; we are the “deplorables,” hated by the globalist elitists.
Shepard Smith has suddenly departed Fox News. Personally, I wish he’d take his good buddy Andrew Napolitano with him, along with Bret Baier, Chris Wallace, Martha MacCallum, Neil Cavuto, Juan Williams, A. J. Stoddard, Ed Henry, Donna “cheating” Brazile, and others who have always been Never-Trumpers. There’s the door…don’t let it hit you where the good Lord split you…a fond farewell. And there are more who need to go if Fox is to be considered a conservative network.
Baier, Wallace, and MacCallum attended an event in Manhattan to assure advertisers that, “Trump doesn’t own them,” according to a piece published recently in the New York Times. A new report the from the Daily Caller about the relationship between President Donald Trump and Fox News alleges that hosts Chris Wallace and Martha MacCallum criticized and mocked Trump during a closed-door meeting last month.
MacCallum proved her animus against the Trump administration in a recent interview with Rudy Giuliani.
She wouldn’t let Rudy finish a sentence without interruption, something many of the hosts have taken to doing. To be fair, every guest on any Fox program, should be offered a large roll of duct tape and allowed to slap a big piece of it on the pie hole of the host/hostess who cannot shut their mouths and allow the guest to speak. They have all carried rudeness to a new level. (h/t Bud)
As for Andrew Napolitano, he wanted to be a supreme court justice, but was turned down by President Trump. Since then he’s been an anti-Trumper, and falsely claimed on Fox News that Trump’s phone call with President Zelensky was criminal and impeachable.
During an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Joe diGenova blasted Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano as “a fool” for assessing that Trump had committed a crime during his July 25 call with the Ukrainian president. He also said that Democrats’ impeachment efforts amounted to a “seditious attack” on the U.S. government. “What you’re seeing is regicide; this is regicide by another name: fake impeachment.”
In a recent conversation between Geraldo Rivera and Sean Hannity, they were discussing what AG Barr and investigator Durham may find. Geraldo made the comment that whatever devastating findings they came up with, only Hannity would cover it. The rest of the fake and corrupt news media will sweep whatever crimes Barack Obama and his henchmen committed under the rug.
Hannity took those comments as an opportunity to point out that Fox News Channel is undergoing quite a sea of change during the so-called “straight news” programming.
Sean explained to Rivera that there were plenty of hosts and on-air talent at Fox who would fit in well at CNN or MSNBC. “By the way, we are hardly a channel of agreement,” Hannity declared. “We have a few resistance people on the channel if we’re gonna be honest, Geraldo! I mean total resistance, not half-resistance,” Hannity concluded.
Hannity could have been referring to “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace who blatantly misrepresented the testimony of special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker saying it was devastating to President Trump. Chris Wallace proved his leftist bias as a moderator in the 2016 presidential debates, so his antipathy for our president is not new.
Wallace, as well as other on-air talent at Fox News, like Smith and Judge Andrew Napolitano, threw in with the anti-Trump resistance to try and remove the President from office.
Judge Jeanine Pirro
From Business Insider comes this report on Judge Jeanine Pirro.
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro confirmed she was suspended from the network in March 2019, and said it was the first step in plans to fire her. In comments made during a commercial break on the radio show of former White House aide Sebastian Gorka, Pirro said that her suspension was “the basis to tee up for anything I do wrong, they’ll fire me.”
The judge missed two weeks from the network and followers thought she’d been fired. It was all because she questioned whether Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Somali Muslim, could be loyal to the United States because she wears a hijab. Fox News has never confirmed that she was suspended.
President Donald Trump expressed his support for Pirro, tweeting: “Bring back Judge Jeanine Pirro,” and blaming it on the “Fake News Media” and “Radical Left Democrats.”
The judge also said her bosses at Fox News had barred her from talking to other media outlets. She said, “Fox reviews everything. They’re unbelievable. They’re still saying you cannot do Bill O’Reilly; you cannot do Newsmax.”
Fox News publicly criticized Pirro’s remarks in a statement in March, saying the host’s views did not “reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”
Fox News Radio host and commentator Todd Starnes’ contract with the news outlet is not being renewed, an announcement that follows a controversial segment from his radio show. Starnes already has other projects in the works.
Todd has started Starnes Media Group, which he described as “a multi-faceted broadcasting and digital company focused on delivering authentic conservative news and commentary.” He has also been in negotiations to purchase a news radio station.
In late October, the radio host interviewed Fox News commentator Robert Jeffress, a Texas-based pastor and stalwart supporter of President Donald Trump. During the interview, Jeffress suggested Democrats worship the pagan god Moloch, who is biblically associated with child sacrifice. Jeffress is right. Think communist China is bad? In America babies are being aborted alive and their organs “harvested” from them while they’re still breathing. Jeffress and Starnes are spot on!
And last August, Starnes caused a stir when he said the U.S. is suffering a “slow-moving invasion,” referring to illegal immigration. The progressive group Media Matters said Todd likened the situation on the southern border to invasions by the Nazis in the 1930s.
Todd Starnes said he will not compromise his beliefs, not even when he’s enjoyed 15 years at Fox.
One America News
There’s a new sheriff in town, and it’s One America News Network (OANN). President Trump has loved Fox News and many of the hosts, but his allegiance is changing. One America News has slowly but surely won his affections since the 2016 presidential election.
As Trump publicly lashes out at his old favorite Fox, the six-year-old One America News Network that was launched at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference made its way up the crowded broadcast news ladder and into the heart of our President.
In 2000, Robert Herring Sr. won $122 million by selling the family’s circuit board printing business, Herco Technology. The Washington Post reported that upon his retirement, his insomnia allowed him ample time to watch television, which eventually inspired his move into the industry.
Herring’s touch on the channel appeared in its first year in a two-hour special on Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman who had spent half her life in a vegetative state and became the face of the right-to-die debate. Robert Herring offered $1 million to Schiavo’s husband to stop trying to get her off life support. He refused and Schiavo died in 2005 after her feeding tube was removed.
Charles Herring told the Daily Beast just before the announcement that he believed “it is getting really hard to find just the reliable, credible, fact-based news with substance.”
Lou Dobbs is excellent, and there are other Fox hosts who speak the truth, but Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch was eliminated from Fox because he made the statement that Soros was funding the illegal alien caravans. Fox called Farrell an anti-Semite and banned him from the network. He can now be seen on OANN. If you want real conservative news…One America News has it. Direct TV carries it, as does Roku, which is becoming more and more popular. For information on receiving OANN, see my previous article.
