          Alisyn Camerota Worked For Fox: They Pushed 'Sharia Law' Lies      Cache   Translate Page      

In a discussion of Jeanine Pirro's disgusting tirade against Ilhan Omar, a panel at CNN's New Day featured a former Fox News employee: Alisyn Camerota.

This is not the first time Camerota has taken us behind the scenes at Fox. When Roger Ailes was charged with sexual harassment and ultimately stepped down as Fox News Chairman, Camerota testified that she, too, was a victim of unwanted advances from her boss. Video from April 2017:

On Monday, Camerota again testified as to the culture at Fox News that would allow overt racist rants on the air.

"When I worked at Fox, 'Sharia Law' was one of their favorite boogeymen." said Camerota.

Brian Stelter clarified: "The segments were fear-based, not fact-based." Camerota agreed with that analysis, and said "I guess the only thing that's surprising is that Fox put out a statement condemning" Pirro.

          Stephen Colbert On Tucker Carlson: 'You're Awful On So Many Levels'      Cache   Translate Page      

Tucker Carlson's latest unearthed foolishness has proven to be great fodder for late night comedians. Here, Stephen Colbert lays into the thoroughly awful Tucker Carlson, especially where he made statements condoning the pedophilia of polygamist Warren Jeffs, insinuating that Carlson was in the same ballpark of evilness himself.

I really can't argue with that, but awfulness seems to be a desired feature at Fox News, and just what they wanted when they went looking for a replacement for Bill O'Reilly.

Stephen Colbert shot down Tucker Carlson's resurfaced controversial remarks about Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan and religious leader Warren Jeffs on his Monday show, addressing the Fox News opinion-show host directly and calling him "awful on so many levels."

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar thanked Fox News on Monday for condemning comments made on the network by weekend host Jeanine Pirro centering on the freshman Democrat's wearing of a traditional Muslim head covering.

          Pirro Comments Make Some Fox News Advertisers Wary      Cache   Translate Page      
A handful of advertisers indicated they would  move their commercials out of the Saturday-night broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” the latest example of some marketers expressing wariness with commentary made by some of the cable-news network’s opinion hosts. During her broadcast on Saturday, Pirro, a former New York prosecutor, suggested Minnesota […]
          Fox Condemns Pirro for Asking if Omar is Pro-Sharia      Cache   Translate Page      

Breitbart reported Monday that the Fox News Channel “condemned host Jeanine Pirro’s remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) use of a hijab and said the issue has been dealt with directly.” Sounds serious. But what Pirro actually said was something Fox should have been applauding, if it hadn’t already become just another establishment network.

Pirro said: “Think about this: She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Predictably, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on Fox to fire Pirro. Like a shark, CAIR can smell blood in the water: instead of defending Pirro for asking a perfectly legitimate question, Fox immediately reacted as if Pirro had stolen Barack Obama’s parking space, denouncing Pirro’s words with stern self-righteousness: “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

Pirro, issued a clarification, to little effect: “I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American. My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution. I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”

Fox is increasingly slipping into the Leftist echo chamber. It is terrified of discussing these issues. A few years ago, Jeanine Pirro contacted me and was going to have me as a featured guest on a special show about Sharia. She was very excited about it, and all the arrangements were made to fly me in and get me set up in the studio. Then at the last minute, everything was canceled — it was clear that Fox executives had told her she was venturing into forbidden territory. They willingly kowtow to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s defamation campaign targeting foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others. But last night, Pirro ventured off the reservation again, daring to suggest that Ilhan Omar’s hijab showed her to be Sharia-compliant.

There is so much confusion on this issue, even among people who should know better. Media critic John Nolte tweeted: “Does a Jewish man who covers his head put the Torah above the Constitution? Does a Catholic woman who covers head put the Pope above the Constitution? What a stupid thing to say.”

No in both cases, because in both cases the headwear in question is not part of a larger system that is incompatible with Constitutional rule. However, the hijab is part of such a system, and that’s all Pirro was saying. Fox should not have rebuked her, but this is the age of pandemic cowardice, so it was likely unrealistic to expect anything else.

Ilhan Omar herself, not surprisingly, was happier with Fox News than she has probably ever been, and tweeted: “Thank you, @FoxNews. No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.”

But that wasn’t really what Pirro did. Pirro suggested that Omar’s anti-Semitism came from Sharia. And indeed, Sharia is indeed inveterately anti-Semitic: the Qur’an demonizes the Jews in numerous ways. It depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

Sharia also mandates that women cover their heads:

“And tell the believing women to reduce their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.” (Qur’an 24:31)

“O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (Qur’an 33:59)

“Narrated `Aisha (the wife of the Prophet): `Umar bin Al-Khattab used to say to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) “Let your wives be veiled” But he did not do so. The wives of the Prophet (ﷺ) used to go out to answer the call of nature at night only at Al-Manasi.’ Once Sauda, the daughter of Zam`a went out and she was a tall woman. `Umar bin Al-Khattab saw her while he was in a gathering, and said, ‘I have recognized you, O Sauda!’ He (`Umar) said so as he was anxious for some Divine orders regarding the veil (the veiling of women.) So Allah revealed the Verse of veiling. (Al-Hijab; a complete body cover excluding the eyes).” (Bukhari 79.14.6420)

Wearing hijab is a sign that one accepts these imperatives. That is not necessarily true, as lots of women of all perspectives wear headscarves, but when a Muslim woman wears hijab, it’s reasonable to surmise that she accepts the Qur’an and Sunnah, the sources of Sharia. Sharia denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the equality of rights of women, and the equality of rights of non-Muslims. Wearing hijab is a sign of adherence to Sharia.

So what did Judge Jeanine Pirro say that was wrong about Ilhan Omar? She asked questions that need to be asked. Fox should be apologizing to Pirro, not Omar.

Newly uncovered audio has US political media personality Tucker Carlson defending a man who received a felony conviction for arranging child marriages in the US. The audio was recorded more than a decade ago, during appearances by Carlson on the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show. In subsequent audio recordings, Carlson uses racist and homophobic slurs.

Carlson is heard on the audio backing the accused, saying: “He’s in prison because he is weird and unpopular and he has a different lifestyle that other people find creepy.” He then went on to say that rape of a child within the context of marriage is somehow different from other types of rape. “The rapist, in this case, has made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of this person. So it is a little different,” he says. In the audio, Carlson also says that arranging a marriage between a 16-year-old and a 27-year-old isn’t the same as pulling a stranger off the street and raping her.

Ending Child Marriage

What does child marriage mean for girls’ lives? And why does child marriage persist?

Carlson isn’t backing down from his comments. Instead, he says he was caught “saying something naughty on a radio show more than a decade ago.” He then challenges “[a]nyone who disagrees with [his] views” to come on to his show and explain why.

Here’s why: Human Rights Watch has documented the devastating impact child marriage has on girls around the world. Compared to women who marry after the age of 18, married girls are more likely to drop out of school, live in poverty, and be victims of domestic violence. Child marriage also often results in serious health risks due to early pregnancy, which threaten the lives of both girls and their babies.

Each year around the world, 12 million girls marry before the age of 18, and the US is no exception. With child marriage comes lifelong harmful effects for girls.

Carlson’s comments are deeply troubling. They make light of a practice that threatens the rights and health of girls.

At a time when there is growing recognition that child marriage is a severe human rights violation, Carlson’s comments are indefensible.

          NRA Having Just A Terrible Time, Isn't That Sad?      Cache   Translate Page      

Pity poor Wayne LaPierre! The guy just wants to flog murder machines and watch the cash roll in, and he keeps getting dragged into stupid bullshit. The then National Rifle Association president only got paid $1.5 million in 2017, and that is not nearly enough to compensate him for having to clean up every time that Loesch woman sticks a Klan hood on a cartoon train. The NRA is supposed to be a cash cow, that keeps up a steady hoofbeat of fear, while quietly making its leadership very, very fat. It's not supposed to be the attack dog for a modern day red scare that calls grieving mothers "tragedy-dry-humping whores." What happened to KILLING THEM SOFTLY, DAMMIT? That's what Wayne wants to know!

The New York Times reports that all is not well in Gun Land. Some of the old guard are nervous that appointing themselves the clenched fist of the culture war is making it harder to pull crumpled bills out of their cleavage.

In recent weeks, in a rare airing of internal debate at the N.R.A., two prominent board members expressed concerns about NRATV to The New York Times. Their statements were released through the N.R.A. itself, amid what was described as an internal review of NRATV and its future.

"Since the founding of NRATV, some, including myself and other board members, have questioned the value of it," Marion Hammer, the group's most formidable lobbyist and a key adviser to its chief executive, Wayne LaPierre, said in a statement. "Wayne has told me and others that NRATV is being constantly evaluated — to make sure it works in the best interest of the organization and provides an appropriate return on investment."

Former NRA President Marion Hammer is the biggest gun lobbyist in Florida. She's got to fend off the pesky Parkland kids, and having those NRATV nutjobs poking the bear every day is not helping, Mister! Particularly since the rest of the past presidents managed to get their pictures taken all over Moscow with an actual Russian spy.

It's a delicate balance, between banging the money drum, and trying to quietly disburse that blood money among the vampires. Particularly when the guys doing the banging are literally in bed with Nosferatu. The line between the NRA and its longtime drummers at the advertising company Ackerman McQueen is sometimes ... blurry.

Mr. LaPierre's wife, Susan, has worked for an Ackerman subsidiary, and there has come to be a revolving door between the two companies, with many employees having worked by turns for both NRATV and Ackerman.

Oliver L. North, the [current] N.R.A. president, has a contract with Ackerman, though the N.R.A. would not disclose its size. As part of the relationship, Mr. North, a former Fox News pundit, hosts media programming and special events, like the show "American Heroes," which recently began airing on NRATV.

The N.R.A., a nonprofit, has also directed $18 million since 2010 to a private company jointly owned by executives of Ackerman and the N.R.A., according to records and interviews.

And the nice thing about paying $40 million to Ackerman McQueen in 2017 is that they don't have to disclose how much of it went to Mrs. LaPierre. Or Ollie North. Or any of the other NRA friends and relatives that cycled on and off its payroll. Very convenient.

Newly elected New York Attorney General Letitia James has vowed to take a look at the NRA's finances. Perhaps she'll be able to work out what the NRA charitable foundation bought when it paid $100 million in tax-deductible contributions to the NRA lobbying group, over and above the $5 million loan in 2017.

The NRA also has a history of "forgetting" to put information about conflicts of interest on its tax filings. For instance, they just forgot to mention that they were buying millions of dollars worth of ammo -- $3.1 million in 2017 alone -- from the family business of longtime director and former NRA President Pete Brownell. The Wall Street Journal reports:

In a November tax filing, the NRA Foundation, which is controlled by the NRA board and sends most of its money to the NRA, disclosed for the first time a longstanding arrangement under which it buys millions of dollars in products from Crow Shooting Supply. That company is controlled by Pete Brownell, CEO of an Iowa gun retailer who was a longtime NRA director and NRA president from 2017 to early 2018.

It's an easy mistake to make for eight years in a row.

Brownell is on the left.From Maria Butina's social media

Likewise, the NRA Foundation just plum "inadvertently omitted" to mention that it had paid board member H. Wayne Sheets $685,000 in 2016 through his fundraising firm HWS Consulting. This inadvertent omission carried over into 2017, when it failed to disclose a payment of $710,000. But now the Journal pointed that out, and they'll go forth and sin more until 2023, when the contract expires. Or maybe it will get renewed! Because the NRA Foundation is in dire need of cash since their membership dues dropped 21 percent in 2017. Another couple years like that, and this gravy train might have to hang up its hood, like a stinky old diesel relegated to the shed by a younger, browner, cleaner import.

          Child Rape Apologist Tucker Carlson Also Said Some Racist Sh*t. In Other News, Sky Blue.      Cache   Translate Page      

On Monday night, Media Matters released a second set of recordings from Tucker Carlson's appearances on the Bubba the Love Sponge show, all of which were incredibly racist and would be very shocking, had they been said by almost anyone who wasn't Tucker Carlson. (The child-rape defenses were covered the day before.) There is a reason why all the neo-Nazis swoon over Tucker Carlson, and it's not because of his fashion sense. It is because he says the exact same things they do, every weeknight on national television.

In this second set of recordings, Carlson shared his feelings on a variety of subjects. On immigration, he said that all immigrants should be required to be "hot" or "smart," because "picking lettuce" won't help us build a stronger country years from now. Tucker Carlson, of course, would not be shit if it hadn't been for people working on farms -- he owes everything to the fact that his stepmommy was the Swanson frozen dinners heiress.

He also noted that white men "created civilization," a popular white supremacist talking point (and lie), called Iraqis "semiliterate primitive monkeys" whom he does not care about because they don't use "toilet paper" or "forks," claimed that the Congressional Black Caucus exists to unfairly "blame the white man" for everything, and shared a variety of incredibly racist thoughts about Barack and Michelle Obama.

Let's go to the tape, shall we?

Tucker Carlson makes racist statements in unearthed audio

As these new recordings were being released last night, Carlson was busy giving a little speech on air about how he won't be apologizing for anything he's said, that Fox News is standing by him, and that together, they will never "bow to the mob."

"Since the day we went on the air, they've been working hard to kill this show. We haven't said much about it in public. It seemed too self-referential. The point of this show has never been us. But now it's obvious to everybody. There's no pretending that it's not happening. It is happening. And so going forward, we'll be covering their efforts to make us be quiet," Carlson explained on Monday night, in a bizarre monologue in which he suggested that he is the true victim here. After all, what kind of monsters would quote someone verbatim in order to highlight their actual views on things? It's just so cruel.

"Fox News is behind us, as they have been since the very first day. But we will never bow to the mob. Ever. No matter what," he added, because hey -- if you're going to defend a child rapist and lie about said child rapist never raping a child on the radio, where people can hear you, that's something you want to stand by, forever.

And many others are standing by Carlson as well, particularly the white supremacists in the comments on the most recent Media Matters video excitedly referring to him as "/our guy/" -- their special term for people they believe share their worldview. And, as Ben "Facts Only Care About My Feelings" Shapiro pointed out yesterday, the people who are appalled by Carlson's statements are not his nightly viewers. Because, duh, they probably agree with all of the things he said, and also think Warren Jeffs is a political prisoner of some kind.

Of course, advertisers may not be so eager to stand by Carlson after this. Pacific Life left his ass after he said that immigrants were making the country "poorer" and "dirtier." It is not hard to imagine that other advertisers may not want to be associated with America's #1 Warren Jeffs Superfan. I know I won't be buying any dish soap that is A-OK with child rape.

But hey! They've always got the MyPillow guy -- and at this rate, I'm sure Carlson's show will catch the eye of some bedsheet manufacturers as well.

          Bye Bye Love. Wonkagenda For Tues., March 12, 2019      Cache   Translate Page      

Morning Wonketariat! Here's some of the things we may be talking about today.

There's so much fuckery in Trump's $4.75 trillion budget, we don't have nearly enough time to go through everything. Politico has a list of some of the winners and losers, the former being his golf buddies and Betsy DeVos, and the latter being poor people, the sick, and the elderly (thanks to massive cuts in Medicare and Medicaid previously sold as TrumpCare). WaPo notes that the administration is living in a complete fantasy believing that the economy is doing fine, counter to the analysis from every math geek who's ever used an abacus. Yesterday, OMB Director Russ Vought told reporters that it wasn't actually the Trump tax cuts (for the super rich) that ballooned the national debt, it was Obama. Earlier in the day, Vought appeared on CNBC to bitch and moan about the Mexican-Muslim taco truck invasion of the southern border, arguing that WALL was more important than sick, old, and/or poor people, and stated, "We're tired of being right." US TOO, BUDDY. Meanwhile, the GOP revolt over Trump's border wall has flipped Congress on its head as members consider measures ranging from overriding Trump's national emergency declaration, to limiting the presidential power to declare national emergencies.

In a bigass profile in WaPo, Nancy Pelosi finally said what's been hinted at for two years -- that she doesn't want to impeach Trump "unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan ... because it divides the country. And he's just not worth it." Some Democrats pushed back strongly on Pelosi's remarks, with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez noting Trump met "the Lindsey Graham standard" for impeachment "multiple times." In speaking with Politico, House Oversight Chair Elijah Cummings called impeachment a "political process," and added, "You've got to have bipartisanship. Right now you've got 40 something percent of the country pleased, I guess, with what the president's doing. I think Pelosi realizes this."

Dick Cheney ripped Mike Pence a new asshole at a private meeting in Georgia over the weekend at a forum for a conservative think tank, according to a leaked transcript of the event. The war hawk criticized the Trump administration's foreign policy as being more limpwristed than Obama, complaining that Trump's idea to demand protection money from allies "sounded like a new York state real estate deal." Pence responded by reportedly asking, "Who wrote these softball questions?"

In a rare showing of bipartisan rebuke of the Trump administration, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have invited the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to Washington to address a joint session of Congress later this spring. The invite comes as Trump moves to charge US allies protection money to the tune of "cost plus 50."

Massachusetts Democratic Senator and 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren suddenly found her ads calling for Facebook to be broken up taken down by Facebook. Facebook issued a statement saying the ads violated their policy of using its logos in advertising. Though the ads were later restored, they kind of proved Warren's point that Facebook is too goddamn big. Politico is stirring the pot this morning with a story about Warren taking money from Silicon Valley employees and selling her books on Amazon ... over the last decade.

Senators Ed Markey and Josh Hawley say they plan introduce a bill to amend the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The bill would reportedly extend protections of children up to 15-years-old, and bar platforms from targeting ads at kids under 13. Roll Call notes it's unlikely to become a law even though multiple states and the EU have already moved forward with strict data privacy regulations aimed at keeping companies from fiddling with kids' heads. Here's an example of COPPA laws in action.

Democrats have chosen Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for their 2020 nominating convention. In a tweet, the party stated Milwaukee was "more than equipped."

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand says her office was "thorough and professional" when it "thoroughly and appropriately" investigated sexual harassment allegations from a female staffer against Gillibrand's longtime driver and military adviser. In a brief scrum with reporters, Gillibrand said she has full confidence about the "professional and thorough" investigation that was now "thorough and complete." He must be a good man, and thorough.

Former Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke is headed to Iowa to help state Senate candidate Eric Giddens in a special election while simultaneously reaching out to former Obama people and courting activists. Beto hasn't announced #HesRunning (yet), but political wizards think it's just a matter of time.

Former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams clarified remarks she made at SXSW stating she hadn't decided if #ShesRunning in 2020, and said the possibility was "on the table." Abrams's initial remarks were that she kept a spreadsheet with gigs she wanted, and 2028 would have been the earliest she would run for president.

Tucker Carlson refused to apologize for sexist and misogynist comments made to a shock jock's radio show unearthed by Media Matters. Tucker likened the campaign to have him and Jeanine Pirro "You're Fired" to a "mob" in a defiant monologue, and stated he planned to "fight it" while crying on the shoulder of Sean Hannity. Media Matters later released MORE damning audio of Tucker where he claims "white men" were responsible for "creating civilization," waxes philosophical about THE BLACKNESS of the Obamas, and whines that Iraqi people aren't "human beings" because they "don't use toilet paper or forks," and that they're actually, "semiliterate primitive monkeys," Shortly after Tucker's monologue, Fox News host Brit Hume tweeted, "Doing well is the best revenge," and linked to Tucker's TV ratings. Meanwhile, Variety's Brian Steinberg noted Tucker didn't have many ads during his show, and that's not a good sign (for him).

Since that news broke, Dershowitz has appeared on Fox News a total of 27 times. Not once has anyone on the network asked him about his client or his connection to the secret plea deal a judge has since declared illegal.

During a Breitbart interview, Trump asserted that most immigrants are a drain on America’s social safety net, asserting that he does not “want people that need welfare.”

“I don’t like the idea of people coming in and going on welfare for 50 years, and that’s what they want to be able to do—and it’s no good,” Trump added, further claiming that Democrats want increased immigration simply to “get votes.”

          Alveda King Is the First Woman to Join Promise Keepers Board      Cache   Translate Page      

Ken Harrison, chairman and president of Promise Keepers, announced the appointment of Alveda King, niece of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, to the Promise Keepers board of directors. Promise Keepers, founded in 1990 by former University of Colorado football coach Bill McCartney, is a Christ-centered organization calling men to courageous and bold servant-leadership by sparking a movement that will mobilize millions of men to follow Christ into today's broken world as change makers for their families, churches and communities.

King grew up in the civil rights movement. Her family home in Birmingham, Alabama, was bombed, as was her father's church office in Louisville, Kentucky. She was jailed during the open housing movement. She sees the pro-life movement as a continuation of the civil rights struggle.

Currently, King is a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ, serving as executive director of civil rights for the unborn for Gospel of Life, headed up by Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life. She is also part of the teaching and music ministry as well as former executive director of African Humanitarian Christian Fellowship, founded by her mentor, the late Pastor Allen McNair, founder of Believers' Bible Christian Church in Atlanta, Georgia.

King is a former college professor, holding a Master of Arts degree in business management, and was awarded an honorary doctorate from Saint Anselm College. She also served in the Georgia State House of Representatives, is a presidential appointee and also an accomplished author, actress and songwriter.

Alveda lives in Atlanta and is a regular columnist for "Insiders" section as well as a Fox News contributor. She is the grateful mother of six and a blessed grandmother.

Ken Harrison said,

It's time for men to start acting like men. Calling men to be men isn't chauvinistic or somehow against women—although it is countercultural and controversial. But it is a fact that when men check out of their families, women suffer the most, as do their children—whether born or unborn. Our goal is to start a global movement of healthy masculinity sourced in absolute surrender to God that will empower and encourage men to be better fathers, husbands, friends and men.

Few people understand social movements like Dr. Alveda King. Few have sacrificed for change like Dr. Alveda King. But all-too-many women —including Dr. Alveda King—understand what happens to women and children when men fail to act like godly men. That's why I wanted Alveda to join the board of Promise Keepers—to remind us of the stakes at risk in our mission, the urgency of the need, and to provide the wisdom to help us chart a way forward.

Alveda King said:

A pressing civil rights issue of our day is the plight of the unborn, murdered by the millions, defenseless, voiceless and "choiceless." We are praying that men will rise up as husbands and fathers, leading to genuine life, liberty and happiness in Christ for all; born and unborn.

As my uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." The Promise Keepers message and movement is needed now more than ever, and I'm glad to serve by sharing insight, energy and prayerful support to the Promise Keepers board.

          Church as We Know It Is Over      Cache   Translate Page      

Yes, church as we know it is over, but not anywhere near the way the FOX News author suggests.

Church leaders and pastors have spent time every week encouraging, inviting and pleading with people to come to a specific place at a specific time on Sundays. This approach has created church staffing models, systems and ministry strategies focused on improving attendance.

But that way of doing church is dead.

And just like Joshua needed to hear God say, "Moses my servant is dead" (Josh. 1:2), so he could move into the next level of leadership, I think the Church needs to accept the fate of physical church as we know it, so we can move into the next phase of digital church. —Dave Adamson, FOX News

And the church takes another hit, this time not from the anti-church society that's filled with disgruntled Christians who didn't have their expectations met in the last church they attended, and not from the organic, house church proponents, but from a pastor featured by FOX News. His take on the emerging, morphing church in the 21st century isn't unique, but it is gaining steam, especially among those who are pretty much done with church as it has been known for centuries.

There's a problem though. What is being proposed simply cannot be defined biblically as the church. Technology, video and alternate methods of worshiping, listening to teachings and even connecting with other Christians are all benefits for believers. Every night, I fall asleep to worship music I'm streaming online. I am thankful for the never-ending livestream of the prayer room at the International House of Prayer. Limitless sermons are available to all of us. In fact, nobody has an excuse in this digital age for lacking in spiritual depth, knowledge and intimacy with Jesus. The opportunities for spiritual growth are endless. This is good, but this is not church.

An omni-channel approach to church would allow people to fully connect and engage with a church without the need to step inside a physical environment every week. They could attend one Sunday, listen to the message on podcast the following week, watch a live online stream the Sunday after, and catch the message on demand in a church app the week after that. —Dave Adamson

That sounds freeing, but it's not the church. It is not the ekklesia.

The Ekklesia

In fact, Dave misunderstands the purpose of the church gathering quite remarkably. It's not simply to connect, worship and learn. If that were the case, the online options would absolutely be better in many ways than connecting physically in a local church. It's easy to find the best of the best worship experience, the deepest and most impacting teaching and the experience we specifically desire somewhere online. Those experiences will most always outperform what the local church can offer. Except for at least one, important thing—the governmental gathering. The ekklesia.

The church isn't primarily there to satisfy our desires for worship, teaching and connections. It's been ordained by God as a governmental force in the region. Ekklesia is actually a secular term referring to the gathering together of the people in the region by governmental authorities for the purpose of relaying information and calling people to action.

So, for the ekklesia to function, there must be local leadership, a regular gathering under that leadership and a responsiveness to what God is calling people unto.

Add to that the key purpose of the church, corporate intercession, and you realize it's not possible to have church or to be the church in any legitimate way online.

In my Charisma article titled "Ancient and Emerging: 5 Major Changes Coming to the Church," I write:

We will gather together most days of the week. The 24/7 church will again emerge as the church drives culture instead of reacting to culture. Cares of life will lose their power as we simplify our lives and put corporate prayer and mission ahead of most everything else.

This may be the most challenging change for Christians. Today, Sundays are the days to set aside for corporate worship while we give precedence to our 'normal lives.' In the coming church, the very reason we live will be to pray on fire together every day, receive apostolic assignments and then move out into our lives as kingdom ambassadors. It wouldn't be surprising if a tithe of our time is what became the standard. Two to three hours a day, whether it's in the morning, afternoon or evening, or even in the late-night hours, will be given by every believer to praying on site together with others, ministering and giving ourselves to intercession-fueled kingdom ministry. Of course, much of what we have been giving ourselves to will have to be eliminated so we have the time necessary to devote.

I want to encourage you to consider picking up a copy of my book The Coming Church. This 300-page book is a powerful revelation of what I believe is coming to the church, and the changes for every one of us will be dramatic.

In fact, I'll make the digital version of this book available FREE for anyone who reads this article. Visit and you can download it immediately.

In my article titled Five Unusual Marks of the Coming Church, I write:

The church will drive culture instead of being driven by culture. The 24/7 church is coming and it will violate the prevailing culture of busyness and distraction.

Gone will be the days of formatting our churches to fit within the schedules and expectations of society. The seeker movement will fade away and the urgent call to the wall will overpower even the most demanding of personal and social pressures.

Acts 17:6 (ESV) And when they could not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city authorities, shouting, "These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also,

ESV Study Bible: These hostile opponents spoke better than they knew, for the spread of the gospel throughout the Roman Empire was the beginning of a movement that would change the course of history forever.

The coming church will be marked by its boldness and culture will be threatened for the good.

What About Church Online?

To Dave Adamson's credit, he did state:

This approach allows the church to connect with people physically for 1 hour on Sunday, and stay connected for the other 167 hours of the week, digitally.

While one hour per week in church is woefully short of what is coming in the 24/7 church, he does emphasize staying connected. Utilizing technology to stay strategically and actively locked in to what is happening in the local church is a smart move. While I disagree with surrendering to the whims of today's noncommittal generation and encouraging empty pews, I believe using online media and social connectors is a great move. I remember spending hours in the prayer room every day at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City while also accessing the livestream from home and watching teachings by Mike Bickle and others. IHOPKC is doing media right as it enhances its 24/7 mission instead of replacing it.

However, we need to look a little deeper at the idea of online church.

In my article titled: "You are Not the Church: The Scattering Movement," I deal with this concept of church online. There are some very clear issues that can't be ignored.

Devoid of apostolic leadership: There is most probably (there are exceptions) no clearly defined apostolic leadership involved. We have to know who we're called to serve with. We have to all hear, together, in our local congregation, how we are to respond in mission advance. What's God calling our leaders to focus on? How are we to participate? What are the goals? What steps must we take to prepare ourselves to see this come to pass?

  • 1. Lack of strategic corporate intercession:

While not impossible, it's very hard to involve ourselves in the No. 1 purpose of the church this way—corporate intercession. We just have to be together to pray with unity and consistency if we are to have the sufficient strength to see significant impact.

2. No accountability: Accountability and discipline are nearly nonexistent outside of the context of the local church. Most who flock from the church and into alternative spiritual activities do so to avoid conflict, accountability and correction from leadership. We have to understand that this is a critical part of the refining process. We must be receptive and humble and ready to be challenged—even if the leaders God established for us are exceptionally flawed and out of touch with our needs.

3. Promotes misunderstanding of the purpose of the church: It can quite easily reinforce a wrong understanding of the purpose of the church. I would say this is the most serious issue. The prevailing thought these days is that the church is there for us. Whatever needs we have, we can get many of them met in the church. So, we attend if we are ministered to. Or we may determine that we can get what we're looking for without regular church attendance. So the church becomes unnecessary to us.

Friend, this concept is a defilement of the church. I can't say it in a less striking way than that. We are called to gather together with other believers primarily to intercede for the nations. We are there to give, to leave offerings, to serve, to minister, to pray, to grow. The church isn't primarily there for us; we are to be there for the mission of the church. We may say that we don't need the church, but have we considered that the church needs us?

The purpose of the church simply cannot be fulfilled through technology. Video, social media, websites like this one and other mediums absolutely can be powerful supplements to what we are experiencing in our weekly gathering, but they simply aren't designed to handle the demands of the ekklesia, the governmental, prayer-fueled, local church.

Trump and the School of Roy

by digby

Never back down, never say you’re sorry, never acknowledge any mistakes, if something goes wrong it’s somebody else’s fault, double down, triple down, throw anything back in the opposition’s face...

Daniel Dale of the Toronto Star wrote up one of Chris Hayes' favorite segments:

The prepared text of his State of the Union address in 2018, emailed to reporters by the White House in advance, had Trump lauding a Homeland Security agent named Celestino Martinez, who “goes by C.J.” Instead, Trump said, “He goes by D.J.”

Then he added: “And C.J. He said, ‘Call me either one.’ So we’ll call you C.J.”

Trump has repeatedly used “and” in this way — to suggest his erroneous initial word was just as valid as the correct word he has added afterward. He has spoken of a Border Patrol agent “on the Clintons’, and Chiltons’, ranch,” mocked a country that opposed the presence of U.S. “mishes, and missiles,” urged skeptics of his Israel policy to “open our hearts and minds to possible, and possibilities,” and boasted of beating election expectations “for the midtown, and midturn, year,” not quite getting to “midterm” on the second try.

He pulled the “and” trick three separate times in his September speech to the United Nations, as MSNBC’s Chris Hayes noted. In one of them, he said that “tolerance for human struggling, and human smuggling, and trafficking, is not humane.”

Gwenda Blair, author of a biography on Trump, said the president is a disciple of the “school of Roy.” One of Trump’s key mentors, the late ethics-challenged lawyer Roy Cohn, advocated endless brawling over any admission of fault.

“Never back down, never say you’re sorry, never acknowledge any mistakes, if something goes wrong it’s somebody else’s fault, double down, triple down, throw anything back in the opposition’s face,” Blair said. “It’s worked pretty well with a certain constituency.”

There might also be a famously large ego involved — and Trump’s oft-expressed worry about being laughed at. For Trump, Blair said, “saying you’re wrong for something small is as bad saying you’re wrong for something large. It’s admitting some kind of fallibility.”

At an Illinois rally in October, Trump said a large percentage of American steel jobs were “vanquished” before he took office, an inadvertent departure from his usual line about how they had “vanished.”

“You could say ‘vanquished’ and ‘vanished.’ It’s a combination of both,” he said.

Appearing in June on the Fox News show Fox and Friends, Trump was attempting to complain about the diversity visa lottery program when he mixed up his words.

“We have the lottery program. It’s called lotta visary,” he said.

“Diversity lottery program,” host Steve Doocy interjected.

Trump’s dismissive response: “Yeah, or lottery visa. OK? Whatever. They have 50 names. Every one of them has ‘lottery.’”

There was at least one time Trump confessed to a word error. Or, perhaps, a supposed word error.

Trump received furious criticism in July for saying, while appearing beside Russian President Vladimir Putin, that “I don’t see any reason why it would be” Russia that interfered in the 2016 election.

His implausible explanation more than 24 hours later: “I said the word ‘would’ instead of ‘wouldn’t.’ The sentence should have been, ‘I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t — or why it wouldn’t — be Russia.’”

Press secretary Sarah Sanders said the next day that Trump’s willingness to admit such errors demonstrates his “credibility.”

“When he sees that he has misspoken,” she said, “he comes out and he says that.”

Except, of course, he does exactly the opposite. And that's when he isn't just lying outright, as he was with the Tim Apple gaffe and the "would-wouldn't" nonsense.

Most people make these sorts of mistake. (Not the would-wouldn't which he clearly meant to say the first time.) But because he is such a lying egomaniac, his automatic reaction is to pretend that he meant to say what is obviously a mistake.

          A&E Biopic "Divide and Conquer" Helps Explain Roger Ailes, Fox News And The Rise Of Donald Trump      Cache   Translate Page      

About Roger Ailes And His Biggest Creation: Fox News

A few nights ago, I watched the documentary entitled Divide And Conquer: The Story Of Roger Ailes on the A and E cable channel. For those who do not know, Roger Ailes is the guy who started the “Fox News” cable network.  Prior to that, he started the “America’s Talking” cable channel that eventually became MSNBC, and before that he was a media consultant for Republican politicians such as such as Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush. Yes, the late Roger Ailes was about as Conservative as one might imagine. 

In addition to giving lots of information about who Roger Ailes was, how he lived his life, and what he achieved, the “Divide and Conquer” biopic also actually explains what powered both the rise of Fox News and Donald Trump. Some of the things that I learned about both Roger Ailes and his largest creation, Fox News, made perfect sense and did not surprise me at all. However, what did surprise me was when I learned that when Fox News was started, their main goal was not just to be a Conservative news network that helped the Republican party. Sure, both Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch, the billionaire who funded the starting of the Fox News channel, were hardcore Conservatives, but they both knew that a television channel would not be successful if it did not get ratings, so getting big ratings was their first and main goal. 

So, what was the main way that Fox News got good ratings for their television shows?  As one former Fox News employee put it in the documentary, it was by “stirring up the crazies”.  Fox News found that the more they put outrageous stories on the air that made people angry, the more that those people who had watched those stories would come back to watch the cable channel to see what happened next.  Now, the standard target of the ire that Fox News generated was, of course, those people on the political Left, because both Murdoch and Ailes hated them, but the “stirring up the crazies” technique was not done so much to help Republicans as to help ratings. Helping Republicans was just a nice side benefit to people like Ailes and Murdoch.

In taking this approach, Fox News was following in the footsteps of Talk Radio trash talkers like Conservative Rush Limbaugh, who loved finding ways of getting outraged at the Left, and Conservative television host Morton Downey Jr., who loved getting Progressives on his show so that he could berate them. Conservative Talk radio had been successful for a long time at getting ratings because they had learned that what was important was “finding” big stories that warned of the evil plans that Democrats had to ruin America. This usually meant finding something a Democrat said or did, and distorting it all out of proportion. You see, in order to generate outrage on a regular basis, the truth had to be sacrificed. 

This is why “Fox News” has no loyalty to the truth whatsoever.  It is impossible to both generate outrage over and over again and tell the truth because the truth is generally not as outrageous as the people who run Fox News want it to be.  This is why you had Conservatives outraged when Barack Obama wore a tan suit, even though Reagan also wore a tan suit—because organizations like Fox News want its viewers to be outraged. In Conservative media, outrage is the coin of the realm.

Hosts on Fox News lied and said it was not Presidential to wear a tan suit. They deliberately neglected to mention that Reagan had done the same thing.  So, across America, the results were that Conservatives became outraged that Obama had worn a tan suit. The Conservatives really got into “Outrage Politics” in 2009 after Barack Obama became President and the “Tea Party" movement was born.  One of the things that members of the Tea Party did was attend the meetings that members of Congress had in their own districts and scream and yell about how awful Obamacare was—in other words, they got outraged— and they did it because they were told to get outraged by a "Government takeover” of their health insurance by the rich Conservatives who funded the Conservative Tea Party movement.

OK, But What About Donald Trump?

When Donald Trump ran for President, he watched Fox News all of the time and merely echoed the outrage-inducing programming that Fox had been doing for years. Trump fans were amazed at how well Trump “got” his fans. Well, Fox News had been teaching the rank and file Conservatives what to get angry about for years. When Trump spoke at his rallies and sounded just like the Fox News hosts, he was like George Wallace speaking to a group of white men that had been secretly attending Ku Klux Klan rallies for years and had been hiding those racist beliefs from the public.  “At last”, they must have thought, “we can say out loud how much we hate illegal aliens!”. This also explains the big uptick in racist acts since Donald Trump became President. Conservative talk radio had been fanning the flames of racism that lived in Conservative hearts even before September 11, 2001.  After 9/11, Conservative media fanned the flames twice as hard, especially about anyone who could be considered “brown”—Muslims, people from the Middle East, Mexicans, and anyone who looked Mexican.

This is why Donald Trump achieved great success by being outrageous at his political rallies, especially with regard to race, religion, and national origin, because Fox News, and Conservative Media in general, has been outrageous for decades, and Fox News and others have been teaching its viewers to adore Outrage Media. Not only did Fox News and other Conservative outlets teach Republicans to tolerate Outrage Media, but they also taught Republicans to crave it, and then demand it. If you think that racism has actually gotten worse among a lot of Conservatives the past few years, you would be correct. If you think misogyny has gotten worse the last few years among many Conservatives, you would be correct. If you think that the attitude that only Americans matter in the world has grown among Conservatives, you would be right about that too. 

This is where the massive amount of racism, misogyny, and nationalism has come from in the Republican Party.  It has come from Outrage Media, like Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, and In their world, the Liberals are always ready to take away all of their guns, to lock Conservatives up in FEMA re-education camps, to take over their Health Care, and to run sex rings out of the basements of Pizza shops.  In this world, the truth never matters. The only thing that matters is that one feeds the base more things to get angry about.

This is why insane conspiracy theorist movements like Q-Anon have been so successful among so many Conservatives—because Conservatives no longer care that much if something is true—just that it is outrageous and feeds their desire for Outrage media. Many Conservatives are addicted to Outrage Media, and places like Fox News are only too willing to give them all their next fix.

OK, But Does Your Article Talk About Nazis?

There are some scary parallels between how Conservative Media, which can now also be called Outrage Media, has demonized various groups, such as Progressives and Illegal Immigrants,  and what happened in the 1930s in Nazi Germany. To me, Outrage Media most closely resembles the propaganda machine that Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, invoked on the German People from 1932 to 1945. The only reason that the Outrage Media of Fox News does not seem even more like Nazi propaganda is that Trump has decided to mostly leave the Jewish people out of his personal wave of outrage against people who are not straight, white, Anglo-Saxon Protestants. Apparently, he does this primarily because both his daughter and her husband are Jewish.

However, the white supremacist/white nationalist/Nazis that Trump refuses to disavow do not make that distinction. Trump may not come out himself and say anything negative about the Jewish people, but his fans are more than willing to make up the difference. Many Trump fans are ready to worship him while at the same time plan violence against the Jewish people. Make no mistake about it, just because Donald Trump likes to throw an occasional bone to Israel and the Jewish people does not mean that those who both love Trump and hate the Jewish people have lessened their anti-Semitism one iota. In fact, since businesses like Fox News have spent decades teaching Republicans to invoke their political outrage reflex on cue, I suspect anti-Semitism among Republicans may only have gone dormant among a few, while still remaining quite active among many others. 

According to his ex-wife, Donald Trump used to keep a book of Hitler's speeches on his nightstand.  Likewise, Roger Ailes used movies of Hitler's rallies to create a Nixon Presidential Campaign media event. Donald Trump may claim that "Democrats hate the Jewish People" as he did recently; however, it seems that whenever one scratches the surface enough of many Republicans, one often finds the same thing: an admiration of both the beliefs commonly held by the Nazis and the of the Nazi technique of propaganda and outrage. 

The Democrats currently have thirty-eight Jewish people in Congress, while the Republicans only have two. The Democrats ran the only Jewish candidate ever on a U.S. Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket in 2000 with Joe Lieberman in the Vice President slot. When it comes to supporting the Jewish people, actions speak a hell of a lot louder than words, and the Democratic party has done far more to advanced oppressed groups, including Jews, Native Americans, Women, LGBTQIA+ people, African Americans, and Latinos than the Republicans ever have.

However, the truth was never the point of Donald Trump saying that Democrats hate the Jewish people.  It was, once again, all about the outrage. I am sure that Roger Ailes would have gladly thanked Donald Trump for the ratings boost that his fake outrage provided Fox News if Ailes were still here.

          Re: Sawant Faces Ethics Complaint from Challenger, 12 Candidates in Ballard, and More City Council Election News      Cache   Translate Page      

@22: "Nobody has seen any proof that O'Brien wasn't going to win."

For any possible future event of non-zero probability, it is by definition impossible to provide proof that it cannot happen. Did you hit upon this amazing revelation all by yourself?

"All we get are these hearsay descriptions of private polling."

You seem to have a real problem believing that an elected official, on the eve of his election year, would commission a poll, read the results, and decide upon those results. Why do you doubt this very ordinary sequence of events happened in this case?

"Also known as the least reliable kind of polling, even if the hearsay is true."

If the poll showed voters, by a two-thirds to three-quarters margin (for example) had a negative view of CM O'Brien's performance in office, does it matter if the margin of error is 5, 10 or 20 percent? Discuss.

"In which case, why don't they just show us the poll?"

Yes, why was valuable information, which had been paid for private use, not been made pubic? You just don't understand.

"The hearsay about private polls that the head tax was unpopular is just as suspect."

Meaning, you have no reason to believe it was not valid.

"The city council was united in favor of it."

And the thudding of the Council's rubber stamp had barely stopped resounding when the citizens started organizing a referendum to overturn it. Who the hell do these people think they are, to oppose a united Council which had ignored them? If the Council had wanted citizen input, they would not have allowed rent-a-mobs from SHARE to shout down all opposition, right? And yet, those ungrateful citizens exercised their right under the Referendum process anyway.

"Suddenly a metric fuckton of money pours into Seattle politics,"

Actually, Amazon is a company founded in Seattle, with corporate headquarters in Seattle. (I just thought you should know.)

"a bunch of illegal private meetings happen,"

No meetings happened, and what happened was not illegal. The City Attorney just settled a lawsuit to that second point; do try to keep up.

"Along with sketchy paid signature gatherers with nothing but tales skanky manipulation and lies to get people to sign a piece of paper."

So, your claim that all the signatures were faked is no longer valid? How about your claim Fox News commanded tens of thousands of Seattle voters to sign? Which "bullshit narrative" (to coin a phrase) do you want us to believe this time? Please specify.

"And magically the whole council flips. How perfectly normal!"

It's almost like they finally understood how much we citizens opposed the EHT.

"And next thing you know, most of the council isn't running for re-election. Also perfectly normal!"

It's almost like they finally understood how badly they had failed us.

"The disproportionate anti-O'Brien hate you see online isn't matched on the ground in real life."

This in the very same comment wherein you complain that no one showed you the poll results. Priceless!

"Neither is the Sawant hate."

You're the one saying it's hate. Maybe it's just fatigue, after too much talk and too few results?

"So I was never wrong about O'Brien, because he dropped out."

You said he'd be re-elected. He won't be. You were wrong. See how that works? Please tell us you do.

"He dropped out for reasons we have no way of verifying."

You don't believe the reasons he gave?

"Next thing you're going to see is this sad little ethics complaint against Sawant fizzle out."

I mentioned up-thread it wasn't really relevant to the election, so thank you for your validation.

"You're going to have to earn it."

No, she's going to have to earn it. Or do you believe incumbency is self-perpetuating in this election year?

If so, go ask Mike O'Brien.

          The Emerging Democratic Minority      Cache   Translate Page      

The Emerging Democratic MinorityThe biases of the media are so pervasive that there is little recognition of the steady disintegration of the Democrats, though it is occurring every day. Rational and intelligent members of the center-Left write to me every week with new concerns about where the Left is going. The Democratic National Committee’s decision not to allow Fox News to put on one of their candidates’ debates confirms the weakness of the party and of its leaders. The process of atomizing society into smaller and smaller bearers of less and less widespread grievances, on each of which the whole movement of protest, uproot, reveal, and punish is in constant paroxysms of righteousness, is becoming louder and faster and more absurdly overwrought by the day.To take the most prominent recent examples, the Democratic leadership has declared the Trump tax cuts and reform to be a “disaster . . . the worst legislation in history . . . crumbs” (Speaker Pelosi) for the country, and a huge payoff for the rich. Economic growth has doubled, real incomes are increasing in the middle-class and working-class income levels for the first time in 20 years, and the country has more jobs to fill than unemployed people to fill them. The Democratic leadership has not just contested the existence of a serious problem at the southern border; it has flirted with proposing the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, and Beto O’Rourke, who outspent prominent incumbent senator Ted Cruz three to one in Texas and came close to winning last year, not only opposes building a defined border but urges that whatever fencing and other obstacles are now in place be removed. At the same time, most official Democrats support the legal effort to prohibit the Census Bureau, in pursuing its constitutional duty to determine the apportionment of state delegations to the House of Representatives and the Electoral College, from asking people about their citizenship, just as they have long waived the necessity of being a citizen to vote.Democratic congressman Eric Swalwell (California) has sponsored legislation to protect the media from the purported threat of physical assault by President Trump and has made a television tour throughout the Cohen road-show saying that anyone who needed “a fixer” shouldn’t be president. Donald Trump was a New York billionaire property developer, impresario, and reality-television star, not a librarian in Swalwell’s native Sac City, Iowa. Rich and active New Yorkers do need fixers (though Trump could have done better than Cohen). American presidents need to be worldlier than they recently have been, not moralistic yokels. Swalwell is a 38-year-old fourth-term congressman who, like much of the population, is contemplating a presidential run. Another Democratic congressman, whose name I decided I did not want to know or remember shortly after his soundbite began over the weekend, said that all the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees’ subpoenas of the Trump entourage would not have been necessary if Trump had published his tax returns.This is the moronic level to which the opposition has excavated. Trump’s tax returns have been audited, and often contested, every year for over 40 years by the IRS. If there were anything substantial lying dead under his fiscal floorboards, Trump’s returns would be plastered and illuminated in Times Square, and Rachel Maddow would read them to viewers every night with the same breathy and then crestfallen excitement that she exhibited last year when reading from a questionably obtained Trump tax return that he had in one year paid “only . . . 55 million dollars.” It was 18 months ago that Senator Chris Coons of Delaware declared that Trump’s tax returns would reveal the Russian collusion to rig the election. The last Democratic vice-presidential candidate, Tim Kaine, on discovering that Trump’s son and son-in-law had met with a Russian woman at the Trump Tower, announced that treason may have occurred.For two years it was thought Mueller would be the deus ex machina who would end the imposture and terminate the aberrant Trump presidency. Now that it is clear that this is not happening, the Democrats, completely shameless at having to start all over with a new canard about Trump’s illegitimate election, are calling for U-Hauls full of materials and scores of witnesses to again unleash the motor-mouthed non-stop-talking television airheads to tell us once more that we don’t know what we don’t know, and just because Mueller couldn’t do it in two years with 15 investigators (so rabidly anti-Trump that some were fired and all had to be brought into the office on leash), that doesn’t mean Trump isn’t a criminal. Elizabeth Warren, self-remade into one of the ludicrous figures of American public life over her claim to being a beer-swilling native, tells cheering crowds that Trump may finish his term in prison. Liberal high-mindedness has reached its coronation; the debasement of the Eleanor Roosevelt tradition.Because this president had never sought or held any public office, elected or unelected, or a high military position, his presidential candidacy, which was the subject of such uproarious mirth until he was elected, has incited the inference that anyone, everyman (and woman), can be elected to that position. Thus the field of possible Democratic candidates has become absurdly crowded with absolute poltroons. It is like a New York City Marathon for the unfit. Governor Jay Inslee of Washington, who, when a guest in the White House, reprimanded the president for sending too many tweets, and who was chief judge-shopper for the initial fatuous district-court ruling purporting to exercise the president’s rights over immigration, is running for president on the climate-change issue. His own measures on the subject were rejected in his home state. Americans, rightly, do not consider this a pressing issue, but he wants to ride this hobbyhorse to the White House.There are more than 30 possible or already declared Democratic candidates, and all but three or four tick at least three of the following high-explosive booby-trap boxes: a draconian green program based on Ocasio La Pasionaria’s intuition that without it the world will burn up in twelve years; personal-income-tax rates in the 70 percent range; legalized infanticide; completely nationalized health care; open borders and no attempt to distinguish citizens from noncitizens; and vast reparations to African Americans, Latinos, and native people.The Trump-hating media are enablers of a fantasy game in which everyone pretends that the Democratic party has a large number of interesting, qualified, sensible people to choose from to knock off this president. The true evidence of what is happening is that the canaries in the mineshaft are falling over. There were only four putative candidates who had the position, recognition, and sensible perspective to make a serious race. Michael Bloomberg (who has drunk himself half-silly with the climate-change Kool-Aid) has gone to his default position of aiming for secretary of state, as he did with Jeb Bush and Hillary. He left the race, and Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio followed him. Amy Klobuchar is unlikely to have the flair to win, but she is a presentable candidate. The inevitable Joe Biden, who first ran for president in 1988 but was knocked out for cribbing a platitudinous line from defeated British Labour-party leader Neil Kinnock, seems likely to make the race.In fact, Joe Biden is the man America needs. To be sure, he could not possibly win, and he does not have the judgment or moral authority to be an effective president. But he is an amiable old water buffalo who would make a somewhat respectable race and gather together the many Democratic constituencies that are now proliferating and multiplying like an aggressive virus, and by his honorable example, though failing to excite anyone, might also prevent every sane Democrat from voting Republican. Biden might spare his party a terrible fate and deliver it to a serious contender in 2024, when the country could be expected to continue its now well-established pattern of alternating parties in the White House every eight years. The polls are not now asking the questions they will in 18 months: Trump will have delivered on the economy, illegal immigration, trade, energy, and avoidance of foreign-policy fiascos, and his opponents are mainly quacks. America needs a two-party system with sane people at the head of each. Joe Biden is no world-beater, but he could spare the Democrats a world-historic beating at the polls next year.

Border security, they say, involves far more than the exact length of walls. It involves Border Patrol agents, technology, immigration rules and much, much more.

          Here's why Tucker Carlson might not survive at Fox News      Cache   Translate Page      

Ranting that he'd never give in to "the mob," Fox News' Tucker Carlson last night angrily responded to recently unearthed audio clips of him uttering jaw-dropping, hateful commentary during radio interviews that he regularly gave over a five-year period.

Deeply homophobic, xenophobic, racist, and misogynistic, Carlson sounded more like a white nationalist podcaster than the host of a popular cable television channel that he is today. Aside from appearing to defend a child-rapist and underage marriage, Carlson belittled Iraq as “crappy place filled with a bunch of, you know, semiliterate primitive monkeys,” and mocked Barack Obama's heritage: “I don’t know how black he is, but I’m sure he’s a good basketball player—he says he is, anyway.”

Tucker often appeared on the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show between 2006 and 2011. The tapes have sparked the latest uproar over Carlson's Fox News show, which is known for its racist and hateful content—and now, advertisers are taking note. On Monday, the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca became the first major advertiser to announce it's dropping Carlson’s show following the release of the old radio recordings. Pressure will mount from activists for other advertisers to follow.

We've definitely seen this scenario play out before. Sometimes Fox News hosts survive the boycotts, as Laura Ingraham did last year after she sparked nationwide fury when she took to Twitter to mock a Parkland, Florida, school shooting survivor for not getting accepted into his top-choice colleges. (Who does that?) But sometimes hosts don't survive, like former Fox News stars Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly. Both talkers and their highly rated shows were canceled when the network could no longer monetize their ratings after so many advertisers had fled.

As of right now, Carlson may be heading for the Beck/O'Reilly dustbin of cable news history, and here's why.

          Did Fox News break the law to help Trump? Lawyer says Congress should subpoena her client      Cache   Translate Page      

A potentially massive story is brewing that connects Donald Trump, Stormy Daniels, Fox News, and potentially illegal actions by Fox network executives. On March 11, attorney Nancy Erika Smith appeared on The Beat with Ari Melber on MSNBC to discuss the publicly available facts relating to her client, former Fox News reporter Diane Falzone, who had the Stormy Daniels story before the 2016 election and was told to “let it go” by Ken LaCorte, a now-former Fox News executive.

Falzone is currently prohibited from talking about the case because she sued the network in an unrelated discrimination case, and her settlement came with a nondisclosure agreement that prohibits her from speaking out. She explained in a Vanity Fair op-ed why she accepted the terms of the settlement. 

After the story’s publication, my phone lit up with text messages. After all, I was that reporter. But there isn’t much that I can say about the incident in Mayer’s story, because I am subject to an N.D.A. In March 2018, I settled a lawsuit that I brought against Fox News claiming gender and disability discrimination and retaliation. The settlement contained a non-disclosure clause. I was in the middle of a high-risk pregnancy and wanted to move on with my life.

LaCorte denies he killed the story because Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch favored Donald Trump, instead saying he did so because it was "not publishable." Falzone and her attorney are asking for Fox News to release Falzone from the part of her nondisclosure agreement relating to the Donald Trump-Stormy Daniels story so the full facts can become known. 

Stormy Daniels’ original attorney, Keith Davidson, has been speaking out this week and providing new details about the settlement. In an interview with Chris Cuomo on CNN, he made the case that the settlement was absolutely an effort to conceal the story from the public in the weeks before the election, because the Trump camp knew about Stormy Daniels’ efforts to tell her story, beginning in 2011 and continuing all the way until 2016. Davidson said that as soon as the Access Hollywood tape was released, Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was on the phone with him to buy and kill the story as soon as possible.

          After Stormy Daniels announces she has a new attorney, Michael Avenatti releases cryptic statement saying it was his decision to break ties      Cache   Translate Page      

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JANUARY 26: Adult film actress/director Stormy Daniels (L) and attorney Michael Avenatti attend the 2019 Adult Video News Awards at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on January 26, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

  • Attorney Michael Avenatti is no longer representing Stormy Daniels. 
  • Shortly after Daniels announced new representation in a tweet, Avenatti shared a statement that said the decision to break ties was his. 
  • Daniels, an adult film actress, allegedly had an affair with President Donald Trump and has been at the center of a scandal over a hush-money payment she received from Michael Cohen. 

Attorney Michael Avenatti is no longer representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels less than a week after a federal judge dismissed her lawsuit against President Donald Trump.

On Tuesday, Daniels announced she has new representation. 

"I have retained Clark Brewster as my personal lawyer and have asked him and his firm to review all legal matters involving me," Daniels said in a tweet. "Upon completion of Mr. Brewster's review and further consultation with me, I anticipate Mr. Brewster will serve as my primary counsel on all legal issues."

Subsequently, Avenatti tweeted a statement that said he informed Daniels "in writing" on February 19 that he was " representation of her for various reasons that we cannot disclose publicly due to attorney-client privilege."

"This was not a decision we made lightly and it came only after lengthy discussion, thought and deliberation, as well as consultation with other professionals," Avenatti added. 

Avenatti said he wishes Daniels "the best."


When asked for more details on what inspired this development, Avenatti directed INSIDER to his tweet.

Brewster, who is apparently now representing Daniels, did not immediately respond to a request for comment from INSIDER on Avenatti's statement. 

Daniels and Avenatti have been at the center of a major scandal surrounding Trump, an alleged extramarital affair, and hush-money payments.

Trump's former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen told prosecutors that he made payments to the the adult film actress to keep quiet about the alleged affair. The president has denied having an affair with Daniels as well as Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, who also said she had an affair with Trump and received a payment from Cohen. 

Among other crimes, Cohen has pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations linked to these hush-money payments, and has implicated Trump in these crimes. Cohen is set to begin a three-year prison sentence in May.

          Dem Rep. Green Battles FNC's Cavuto on Impeaching Trump: 'Bigotry Is Impeachable'      Cache   Translate Page      
Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” Rep. Al Green (D-TX) debate host Neil Cavuto on what was impeachable, arguing that President Donald Trump’s “bigotry is impeachable.” When asked what impeachable offense Trump had committed, Green said, “The president has put his bigotry into policy. The president was discussing immigration at the time he called certain countries S-hole countries, and I might add these are countries where people of color were.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” House Appropriations Committee member and Homeland Security Subcommittee Ranking Member Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN) stated that Democrats will have to compromise on border wall funding and “It will get done.” Co-host Sandra Smith asked, “Does it have any chance of passing in a Democratic-controlled House?” Fleischmann answered, “Absolutely. There’s no reason that we won’t get border funding, and I will tell you why. The Democrats have other priorities than we do, but we have the Senate. We have the White House. The Democrats only control one-third of the process. So, if they’re going to want to get their other domestic spending needs addressed, they will have to compromise, as they did last time, on the wall and on border funding.

Restored Republic via a GCR as of March 13 2019

Compiled 13 March 12:01 am EST by Judy Byington, MSW, LCSW, ret. CEO, Child Abuse Recovery, Author, “Twenty Two Faces: the biography of Jenny Hill.”As a young child Jenny was tortured by a CIA Operative and forced to witness a child sacrifice: Articles on a CIA/Vatican Ninth Circle Child Sacrifice Cult:

Below is a summary of information from the Internet. It would be up to the individual reader to do their own research and decide whether or not it is valid. A Special Thank You to Martha for her untiring research efforts in discerning the Truth, Dale who keeps me in line and Ken who uncovers almost unlimited intel on pedophilia to help us Save the Children.

Patience is a Virtue. Having Virtue is a sign of a good moral being. Good moral beings have the power to overcome evil and change the world. In all your giving, please don’t forget exploited children.

Judy Note - in my opinion nothing has changed since yesterday:

1. Reno received notice of the payment codes on Sun. March 10.

2. The payment codes were released to payers on Mon. March 11.

3. That same Mon. March 11 XI Ping was at Maralago signing papers with President Trump.

4. President Trump then released the codes for the “doors to open” on Tues. March 12.

5. Geopolitical issues have been handled behind the scenes and were not released to news outlets.

6. Some have said that we would receive information to set our appointments by Fri. March 15.

A. Apparent Global Currency Reset/GESARA Schedule:

Fri. March 1: The new USTNs were made live Fri. March 1 at 3pm EST.

Sat. midnight March 2: The debt ceiling was hit, the AIIB ended their fiat credit to the Federal Reserve and US Taxpayer monies were sent to the new US Treasury in Reno.

Mon. March 4: Zimbabwe demonetized their Zim Bond Notes, released them on Tues. March 5, at 1 pm EST - the same time that the green light was issued for payments to buyers and payers at the new US Treasury in Reno (Zim Bonds were backing the entire Global Currency Reset and they had just been demonetized for the RV).

Wed. March 6 at 8:15 pm EST some fines, penalties and a group known as the Big Boys were paid out. It was rumored that by Thurs. March 7 the Cherokee Nation had been paid and that by Sat. March 9 five Indian Nations had been paid out. Farm Claims and F&Ps were to be paid out the evening of Sat. March 9.

Friday March 8 intel behind the now over 82,324 sealed indictments began to be revealed when Hannity on Fox News broke the story on the Deep State FISA Conspiracy to Commit Fraud on a Court by the DNC, Clinton Campaign and FBI. Although other mainstream news outlets have yet to pick up the story, according to Pentagon sources, "The Ides of March should bring 85,000 sealed indictments and many arrests in the U.S.”

This Week: The European exit (Brexit) from the Euro would take away the Cabal’s last bastion of rule over the global financial system by closing the Queen’s Bank of London, though Brexit wouldn’t be made official until March 29.

Mon. March 11: Rumor was that on March 11 XI Ping was at Maralago with President Trump and that the codes had been released.

March 13: Zimbabwe to make gold announcement.

Fri. March 15: We should be able to obtain our appointments by Fri. March 15.

Fri. March 15: Back on Oct. 1 2018 the NY Stock Market lost all gains for the year and for the last six months has been on the brink of collapse, with no revival in sight. The Stock Market plummet would be a distraction to hide the RV, along with the Mueller report due out by the Ides of March 15.

March 19: Q tweeted that big things were happening on March 19.

March 20: Military Tribunals began in various secret locations on Jan. 2 and the 9/11 Tribunal began at GITMO on Jan. 28. The FISA Warrant Tribunal was set to begin on March 20. FISA Warrant declassification was expected to expose that the FBI, Justice Department, Obama, Clinton campaign and Democrats were in cahoots to take down duly elected US President Trump – an act of Treason.

March 20: According to a March 6 2019 Institute of Physics of the Earth Report sent to Prime Minister Putin, around March 20 the western coasts of the US, Mexico, Central and South America was set to experience a catastrophic 9 mega-earthquake that would unleash a deadly tsunami with 30 metric-high waves. Scientists were warning leaders to prepare the general population.

March 29: Some say that the Bank of International Settlements planned to announce the gold/asset- backed currency standard on March 29. Others say the new global asset-backed currency system would be announced on Aug. 1 and put in force Jan. 1 2020.

April 1: The transition into the new Quantum Financial System.

August 1: All countries were expected to be GESARA compliant by Aug. 1 2019.

C. March 12 2019 8:48 am EST Intel Alert: Operation Disclosure: GCR/RV Intel Alert for March 12, 2019 Operation Disclosure (Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on intelligence leaks received from several sources which may or may not be accurate. Other confirmed sources may also be included in this overview.)

1. The entire world was waiting on Brexit to be passed as it would mark the end of the remaining Cabal structure.

2. Trump was expected to start making moves on removing the Fed after Brexit was passed.

3. The Fed was connected to the City of London and Brexit would relinquish the City of London from Cabal control.

4. This explained why the EU was doing everything in their power to prevent Brexit from being voted on. The EU continued to make profits from the City of London as they delayed Brexit. These profits were being used to fund the last Cabal/Deep State remnants.

5. If Brexit was not passed, the Alliance was prepared to temporarily crash European markets to force the EU to collapse.

6. Brexit was inevitable and it would happen either way, whether through a democratic process or a total collapse of the EU.

Tucker Carlson speaks onstage during Politicon 2018

Fox News talk show host Tucker Carlson was already looking a little low on advertisers for his television slot Tucker Carlson Tonight, but this latest round of controversy is only going to make that worse.

Over the weekend, recordings surfaced of Carlson from his frequent radio call-ins from 2006 to 2009. During the calls, he, among other things, defended a convicted pedophile, compared Martha Stewart’s daughter to a crude name for female anatomy, made racist remarks about Afghans by comparing them to “semi-literate, primitive monkeys,” degraded sex workers, and defended female-on-male statutory rape.

Unsurprisingly, a number of Carlson’s remaining advertisers are announcing that they won’t be sticking around during the fallout of these latest remarks. According to NBC News, pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca, bedding firm Sheex, and Outback Steakhouse have said they will no longer be associated with Carlson’s show.

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): You don't want anyone to know that you were watching forbidden videos, there is a penalty for that. This is what an authoritarian society looks like. It's a place where the group in charge will tolerate no criticism at all. That's what we're becoming. It was only a matter of time before they came for Fox News.

Of the top dozen news networks in the United States, only Fox has an alternative view. The other channels speak with one voice. They are united on every issue every time. They are in almost perfect sync with the priorities of the Democratic Party.

Fox News stands apart. The opinion shows on this channel have another perspective. You might consider that valuable diversity, something different in a sea of sameness. We're grateful that Fox supports that. The left does not support that. They would like Fox News shut down tomorrow. The other news channels agree with that. They would like it, too, they're trying to do it now.


That's where Media Matters comes in. Media Matters is a George Soros-funded lobbying organization whose sole mission is to punish critics of the Democratic Party. Media Matters often uses propaganda from the Southern Poverty Law Center to bully corporations, news executives, and tech companies into punishing people it doesn't like. Not surprisingly, the media love Media Matters.


"It's about decency," cries the eunuch, "We must have decency" -- by which the eunuch means "less disobeying, more obedience," -- stop criticizing the program, or else. This is the face of state media. Why does Fox even exist, they wonder?

We have 11 other perfectly good cable channels, all of them approved by management, and obedient to the people in charge. How could anybody watch something different? Fox can't be legitimate, they must be lying. Their viewers must be stupid.

          There’s no difference between Fox’s so-called “news” and “opinion” sides on anti-abortion misinformation      Cache   Translate Page      

Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

There are many reasons that Fox News’ false dichotomy between the network’s so-called “news” and “opinion” divisions is laughable, but there is perhaps no clearer indication than the sheer amount of anti-abortion misinformation spread by both "opinion" and “straight news” personalities alike.

After the Democratic National Committee announced that Fox News would not be hosting any of this year’s Democratic presidential primary debates, backlash from Fox’s senior leadership was swift, with officials imploring the DNC to “reconsider its decision” on account of the “ultimate journalistic integrity and professionalism” reportedly shown by some of the network’s hosts. As Variety previously reported, the network had already rolled out a messaging campaign to reassure wary advertisers about the outlet’s legitimacy, extolling the virtues of the network’s news hosts. This messaging campaign is merely a repackaging of the same inaccurate story Fox has been telling for years: Viewers and critics shouldn’t hold the blatant xenophobia, sexism, racism, and lies of the opinion side against the allegedly objective news team. But this recycled talking point further falls apart when it comes to anti-abortion misinformation spread by the network’s hosts.

In January, abortion rights measures in New York and Virginia sent Fox News and broader conservative media into a frenzy. Although both measures were attempts to protect abortion access should the Supreme Court overturn or weaken Roe v. Wade, Fox News hosts across the network’s news and opinion programs seized on the opportunity to spread sensationalized misinformation and attack Democrats for allegedly supporting “infanticide” or so-called abortions “up until birth.” Despite these inaccurate characterizations, Fox News devoted over six and half hours of coverage before the 2019 State of the Union address to falsely claiming that these state measures allowed “infanticide” -- a talking point that ultimately appeared in President Donald Trump’s remarks. In fact, Trump and Republican lawmakers are reportedly banking on using anti-abortion extremism to rally voters for the 2020 elections -- a strategy that was on full display during the most recent Conservative Political Action Conference.

It’s no secret that Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and Sean Hannity -- each a part of Fox’s volatile and increasingly bad-for-business prime-time lineup -- are all frequent anti-abortion misinformers. Although Fox has attempted to distinguish the work of Bret Baier, Martha MacCallum, Shannon Bream, and Chris Wallace from their colleagues, these "news"-side hosts have all pushed their share of lies, distortions, and misinformation about abortion and reproductive rights.

Bret Baier

Although Fox clearly has a profit motive in portraying Baier as a straight news host, there is little to distinguish him from his colleagues on the opinion side when it comes to his abortion-related reporting. In Media Matters’ annual study of abortion-related coverage on evening prime-time cable news programs, Baier and his program Special Report have consistently been dominated by anti-choice talking points and inaccurate statements about abortion and reproductive rights.

Notably, Baier hosted a 2016 town hall with Democratic presidential candidates and used the platform to recycle misleading right-wing anti-abortion talking points. On his program, in the same year, Baier inaccurately described a common abortion procedure as “dismemberment abortion” and misled viewers that a Supreme Court case involving access to contraceptives was actually about abortion rights. Baier previously invoked a longstanding right-wing media talking point comparing legally operating abortion providers to convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell. In 2009, Baier even went so far as to falsely assert that the Obama administration would allow doctors to be jailed for refusing to perform abortions. 

Martha MacCallum

Beyond frequently hosting anti-choice guests such as Live Action founder Lila Rose and Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins, MacCallum seemingly makes little secret of her personal views on abortion and will often use sensationalized rhetoric when discussing the topic.

Even before MacCallum became a staple of Fox’s evening lineup, she was already a serial anti-abortion misinformer. In 2015, MacCallum attacked Planned Parenthood for allegedly using taxpayer money to support abortion care (the organization does not, as the Hyde Amendment bars the use of federal funds for abortion services). Like Baier, MacCallum also used a 2016 presidential primary forum as an opportunity to spread anti-abortion misinformation sourced from the anti-choice group Center for Medical Progress’ (CMP) deceptive videos attacking Planned Parenthood. Since MacCallum began hosting her own program, she has consistently promoted anti-abortion talking points about later abortion and Planned Parenthood. In 2017, MacCallum pushed several myths about the existence of so-called “sex-selective” abortion practices, even demanding a guest on her program explain whether it was acceptable “for someone to decide because they don’t like the sex of their baby to abort it at eight months.”

Shannon Bream

Whether appearing as a correspondent on Special Report or hosting her own program, Fox News @ Night, Bream has been a frequent source of anti-abortion misinformation on Fox. Despite representing the network’s so-called “straight news” contingent, Bream’s promotion to host her own program was celebrated by anti-abortion leaders.

Bream was a frequent promoter of CMP’s deceptive videos, even hosting the Fox News “special” promoting the group’s claims in 2015. In 2016, Bream touted “exclusively obtained” copies of letters from a House investigation based on CMP’s allegations -- letters received a full day before they were publicly released or shared with Democratic members of the investigative panel, in direct violation of congressional rules. Since then, Bream has repeatedly signal-boosted anti-abortion talking points and myths by spreading misinformation about abortion safety, letting guests make inaccurate allegations about Planned Parenthood without pushback, and citing polls commissioned by anti-abortion groups without necessary context to suggest a lack of public support for abortion. If there’s a talking point circulating around anti-abortion media and personalities online, it’s more likely than not that it will eventually surface on Bream’s program.

Chris Wallace

Although Chris Wallace does not discuss abortion as frequently as some of his Fox colleagues, his invocation of so-called “partial-birth” abortion during the final debate of the 2016 presidential election is more than enough to disqualify the anchor from consideration as a fair and balanced voice on abortion-related issues. Wallace’s inaccurate and sensationalized question was then picked up by other right-wing media outlets and has since re-emerged in Trump’s current talking points about abortion. Wallace has also shown a propensity for repeating right-wing smears against Planned Parenthood, citing anti-choice videos attacking the organization well before CMP’s campaign of deception began.

It doesn’t matter whether viewers watch so-called "news" or "opinion" programming: Both are likely to contain sensationalism, outright lies, and harmful characterizations about abortion patients, providers, and procedures -- seemingly no matter the potential consequences.

          Jeanine Pirro’s history of anti-Muslim attacks       Cache   Translate Page      

Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

During her March 9 show, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro suggested to viewers that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) hijab was "indicative of her adherence to sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution." Amid widespread criticism of her hateful remarks, Fox News responded that the network “strongly condemn[s] Jeanine Pirro's comments,” but took no further public action. Pirro herself claimed that her “intention was to ask a question and start a debate" and that “of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution.” But this isn’t the first time Pirro has made hateful and extremist comments about Muslims while appearing on Fox News.

Here are some of Pirro’s prior attacks on Muslims:

Just last month, Pirro suggested that Omar should be grateful to be in the United States because “she is an empowered Muslim woman, while many Muslim women aren't allowed to be educated and they just started driving.” From the February 16 edition of Fox News' Justice with Judge Jeanine

JEANINE PIRRO (HOST): And the amazing part is she’s a freshman congresswoman, and I believe she came to the United States as a refugee, and now she’s in our Congress claiming that the Jewish state -- that Israel and Jews are what? Evil?

QANTA AHMED (CONSERVATIVE COLUMNIST): No. And I think this presents a dilemma for the left. Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi, just like American Muslims have a liability in this woman, they have a liability in this congresswoman. She is showing the marriage of left-wing politics in the Democrats with Islamism. Bernie Sanders congratulated her and said he stands with his Muslim brothers and sisters. To me, he stands with Islamists, and they do not distinguish between the two. It's very problematic. The Islamism only succeeds by portraying itself as a victim and left-wing politics thrives on victimization, victim ideology. She's no victim, as you said. She came as an asylum seeker. She's moved to one of the highest offices in the land within 23 years. What other country gives a refugee that opportunity?

PIRRO: She is an empowered Muslim woman, while many Muslim women aren't allowed to be educated and they just started driving.

During an unhinged rant in 2015 about “radical Muslim terrorists,” Pirro repeatedly fearmongered about Islam and Muslims. She claimed that “this Islamic cancer metastasizes throughout the world” and argued that Muslims “have conquered us through immigration” and “through interfaith dialogue.” In the same screed, she claimed “there is a reverse crusade in progress” and said that “there will be efforts to limit our First Amendment, our free speech, to comply with Sharia blasphemy laws.” From the January 10, 2015 edition of Fox News' Justice with Judge Jeanine

JEANINE PIRRO (HOST): We need to kill them. We need to kill them. The radical Muslim terrorists hellbent on killing us. You’re in danger, I’m in danger. We’re at war and this is not going to stop. After this week’s brutal terror attacks in France, hopefully everybody now gets it. And there’s only one group that can stop this war: the Muslims themselves. Our job is to arm those Muslims to the teeth, give them everything they need to take out these Islamic fanatics. Let them do the job. Let them have at it. And as they do, we need to simply look the other way. It is time for this to be over, and stop sending American dollars to any Arab country that does not support this mission. Pakistan at the top of the list. Force Arab nations to choose: They’re either with us or they’re against us. And stop with this nuclear negotiation nonsense. They don’t operate the way we do. You can’t negotiate, you can’t mediate, and you can’t bargain. You can’t even reason with these people.

Now I’ve been telling you for a year that they’re coming for us. That there is a reverse crusade in progress -- a Christian genocide. Hundreds of thousands of innocents killed in the Middle East. Seven months ago, I said that we need to bomb ISIS, as it began its steamroll through Iraq -- bomb them, bomb them, and bomb them again -- for which I was roundly criticized. Our country’s response to this threat? The FBI destroys tens of thousands of documents deemed offensive to Islam. The CIA removes the word “Islamic” before “terrorist” in those Benghazi talking points. The Fort Hood massacre, the Oklahoma beheading? Both “workplace violence.” Are we morons?

And as we cower to these Islamic fanatics, our president and former Secretary of State [Hillary] Clinton say they will prosecute the man who made the video, free speech be damned. They call murders accompanied by “Allah akbar,” “workplace violence.” This surender is nothing more than a coward's response to the fear of this fanatical terrorism. And this political correctness will be the death of us. They can kill us but we can’t hurt their feelings? I’m surprised the president hasn’t signed a new executive order that simply says, “Don’t offend Muslims.” And make no mistake -- as sure as I’m talking to you, there will be efforts to limit our First Amendment, our free speech, to comply with Sharia blasphemy laws which call for death to those who slander the Prophet Muhammad.

Our government’s response to the terror threat is to have an interfaith dialogue to try to understand and empathize with the enemy. And when they want to shut us up, they call us Islamophobes. Muslim groups like CAIR and the Nation of Islam have been integrated into our society, Muslims invited to worship at our National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. We’re directed by a political correctness that is so bizarre, so disconnected from reality that it does nothing but assist our enemy in our own destruction. They have conquered us through immigration, they have conquered us through interfaith dialogue, and they have conquered us by co-opting our leaders into a position of embarrassment.

As this Islamic cancer metastasizes throughout the world -- Boko Haram in Nigeria, al-Shabab in Somalia, Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, Al Qaeda, ISIS -- and as it goes through Europe, it is headed our way.

"Stop defending Islam, start protecting Americans": After Obama noted violence carried out in the name of religion isn't limited to Islam, Pirro furiously listed off violent attacks by Muslim perpetrators. Pirro cited violent incidents by Muslim perpetrators (while ignoring that right-wing terror was considered the main terrorist threat in the U.S.), asking, “Mr. President, please identify what other violence is being committed against Americans in the name of any other religion -- or is it just a coincidence?”

JEANINE PIRRO (HOST): Mr. President, what’s most interesting is that with the crusaders you so easily identify them as Christians. Why is it so hard for you to identify today’s jihadi terrorists as Muslim? Throw a rock at Christians, no problem, but never speak of Islamic terrorists. Mr. President, aside from the obvious that was then and this is now, the Quran is interpreted by some as demanding jihad, the taxing or killing of nonbelievers, and a worldwide caliphate. And surprise -- today’s terrorists are beheading, imposing that same jizya tax, and in their march to create an even bigger Islamic State. Stop apologizing and stop pussyfooting around with this language dance. We get it -- not all Muslims are terrorists. It was Egypt, a country of 90 percent Muslim that rose up against the jihadists who were also Muslim.

Consider this: The first World Trade center attack in 1993 -- by Muslims. The USS Cole bombers were Muslim. The Fort Hood shooter was Muslim. The shoe bomber was Muslim. The underwear bomber was Muslim. The Boston bombers were Muslim. The September 11 hijackers were Muslim. Mr. President, please identify what other violence is being committed against Americans in the name of any other religion -- or is it just coincidence?

You identify terrible deeds in the name of the Christ. Why not identify terrible deeds in the name of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam? Calling Fort Hood “workplace violence” is a joke. People can’t believe that that’s how you characterize it. But then again, your administration erases words out of reports identifying terrorists as Islamic. Stop defending Islam, start protecting Americans. Stop saying what Islam doesn’t stand for, and start saying what you as our president intend to do about this.

During a 2016 appearance on Fox’s Hannity, Pirro suggested Middle Eastern refugees were violent and couldn’t assimilate. She said this about Middle Eastern refugees: “We've got these guys beating their wives, you've got domestic violence, you've got them hating gays, and we are bringing them to this country. We think they're going to assimilate. They are not.” She also agreed with host Sean Hannity that “this is a clash of cultures.” From the September 20, 2016 edition of Fox News' Hannity

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I honestly think that the issue of not saying "radical Islam," Jay -- and there's such a difference between Hillary and Donald Trump -- the issue of vetting refugees and allowing people that come from cultures that clash -- directly clash with our Constitution, that Americans fundamentally understand that we have to know if they're coming here to become American and assimilate or do they want to proselytize and bring their value system, which is the opposite of ours, with them?

JEANINE PIRRO: It is insane. It's insanity. But when we've got these guys beating their wives, you've got domestic violence, you've got them hating gays, and we are bringing them to this country. We think they're going to assimilate. They are not. And what we've got to do, they've got to move their citizenship --

HANNITY: This is a clash of cultures.

PIRRO: Exactly.

During another appearance on Hannity, Pirro claimed the United States needs to know if refugees or immigrants “believe in Sharia law,” arguing that if they do, “that means it is inconsistent with the Constitution. You do not believe in free speech, you do not believe in women's rights, you do not believe in gay rights.” From the May 24, 2017 edition of Fox News' Hannity

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): How is it that if somebody comes from a country with what I call a clash of cultures -- where they literally believe men should tell women how to dress, and men should tell women if they can go on an airplane and travel or leave the house without a male relative, where gays and lesbians are killed, where Christians and Jews are persecuted -- I'm trying to fully and completely understand why, if you come from that country, we need to know -- do you believe that? Do you want to proselytize us or do you want to join our family?

JEANINE PIRRO: You know, Sean, that is exactly the issue. Do you believe in Sharia law, and if you believe in that, that means it is inconsistent with the Constitution. You do not believe in free speech, you do not believe in women's rights, you do not believe in gay rights. All the things that they would trash you and me for if, God forbid, we didn't believe in those rights, we are willing to allow people that we know are individuals -- actually, we don't know who they are -- to come here, stick to their own rules, and then say, “Gee, if they kill us, well, we have to make sure that nobody commits a crime of hate.” This is hogwash, Sean. And what is happening in the U.K. --

HANNITY: See, you're xenophobic, you're homophobic, you're a racist.

PIRRO: I am not.

HANNITY: Well, that's what the left says.

PIRRO: I am none of those things.

HANNITY: Neither am I.

PIRRO: And I'll tell you why, Sean, and neither are you. The problem is that we expect these people to integrate. And one of the issues is -- and assimilate. One of the issues is they don't want to. And now we've got people in Congress saying because they are de facto segregated from the rest of us that we have to understand that they’re angry with us. We let them in the country.

In 2016, Pirro argued that “we’ve got to start having a conversation about surveillance in mosques” and said she agreed with former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich that the United States should “test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported.” From the July 15, 2016 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends

JEANINE PIRRO: I agree with [Newt Gingrich]. I totally agree with him. We have a president who is an apologist. Look, I'm an amateur and in June of 2014 when I first heard about ISIS, I said bomb them, bomb them, and then bomb them again. I took some heat, but I was right. They were the JV team then. If we had done something, if this president would stop apologizing for what we do, what we are, and stop saying, “You Christians, it's your turn,” as he did at a prayer breakfast, then maybe America would be united in a way where we understand that they're coming. They're here, we're next. I've got to tell you I'm as aggravated as everyone who sat in this chair today. If we've got people standing in the blood of innocent victims when they go for an innocent celebration, then we've got to recognize that we've got a problem at the top of this country.

Our president didn’t want to support [Egyptian President Abdel Fattah] el-Sisi. Thirty-five million Egyptians stood up and said, "We don't want the Muslim Brotherhood. We are Muslims, we don't want the Muslim Brotherhood." And this president would prefer to give tanks and airplanes to [former Egyptian President Mohamed] Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood, forget that. Right now, they are here, they're going to kill us. Women, children, it doesn't matter. We have got to declare war on them. We've got to start having a conversation about surveillance in mosques. We've got to make sure that in the jails these imams are going in and radicalizing people, they just want to kill us. I mean, how dumb are we? And Newt is right. We're sheep saying, “Why are the wolves killing us?” Or, “Be nice to the wolves, not all wolves are bad.” Baloney!

While guest hosting on Hannity, Pirro asked an imam if “Muslims here in America need to speak out more to try to prevent [terrorist] attacks from happening?” and then cut him off and told another guest that “the Muslim community is not coming forward.” From the December 27, 2016 edition of Fox News' Hannity

JEANINE PIRRO (GUEST HOST): That was President-elect [Donald Trump] during his recent thank you tour vowing to fight radical Islam. After the latest terror attack in Europe and the radical Islamist threat growing around the world, do Muslims here in America need to speak out more to help to try to prevent these attacks from happening?

PIRRO: We have got this Islamic threat. You don't deny that?

IMAM MOHAMMAD ALI ELAHI: Well, judge, before I start --

PIRRO: That's a yes or no. Let’s start with a premise, there is an Islamic threat facing the United States, correct? Yes or no?

ELAHI: Well, let me answer this way. First of all --


ELAHI: I'm going to answer your question. But let me first of all say, I mean, to the Pope Francis prayer for peace in Christmas ceremony --

PIRRO: I'm happy for the Pope.

ELAHI: Peace for Syria, peace for Yemen, peace for Iraq, peace for Holy Land, for Africa. And also peace for America, an America free of racism and hatred and intimidation and violence and crimes, and everything.

PIRRO: What’s your point?

ELAHI: My point is that first of all the expression of “Islamic radical” is kind of hijacking the identity of the Muslims.

PIRRO: OK, all right, you don't like the term. You don't like the term.

ELAHI: It is like somebody --

PIRRO: Can I ask you a question? Who is responsible for the World Trade Center? Who is responsible for San Bernardino? Orlando? Paris? All right, Imam, you know what, you got all your time.

PIRRO: Brigitte, the Muslim community is not coming forward. So Imam, I'm going to give you another chance, I'm going to give you another chance. Otherwise we're going to finish totally with Brigitte. All right, here is the chance. Should the family of the San Bernardino attackers, who saw the weapons, who saw all of the instruments that they used, should they have said something and why didn’t they?

In 2017, Pirro claimed that President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban is targeted at “Joe Schmo Muhammad,” who is from a country where “they promised to send in individuals and jihadists to kill us.” From the February 10 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends:

JEANINE PIRRO: This is -- and let me make one thing perfectly clear: If you are not a citizen of the United States of America, you do not have the right to come to the United States, period, end of the story. The president has a plenary authority, the power to determine who comes into this country. And all this talk about constitutional rights -- if you are from Somalia, I got a news flash, you do not have constitutional rights in this country. And Congress has agreed with the plenary power authority of the president in terms of national security and immigration with, what is it, 8 U.S.C., what is it, 1182-F. When they said that the president at any time can make a decision to block an alien from coming to this country. So it's not about people with green cards. It's about Joe Schmo Muhammad, who doesn't have any vetting from another country that -- where they promised to send in individuals and jihadists to kill us.

          Video: Years of Laura Ingraham’s anti-immigrant commentary      Cache   Translate Page      

In the fall of 2017, Fox News announced it was giving its prime-time 10 p.m. slot to longtime conservative commentator Laura Ingraham, who has a history of vile, racist, and anti-immigrant commentary. The choice has proven costly for Fox; Ingraham’s time slot was reportedly “down at least $16 million in ad revenue in 2018.”

Ingraham has spent years demonizing and mocking immigrants. In an August rant that directly echoed white supremacist talking points, Ingraham warned, “Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people, and they are changes that none of us ever voted for, and most of us don't like. From Virginia to California, we see stark examples of how radically, in some ways, the country has changed. Now, much of this is related to both illegal and, in some cases, legal immigration that, of course, progressives love.” She dismissed asylum claims from Hondurans fleeing violence because, according to her, “it’s not our problem.” She referred to detention centers for migrant children as “essentially summer camps.” She defended then-candidate Donald Trump’s claim that Mexico is sending rapists to the United States and argued that Mexicans “have come here to murder and rape our people.” She claimed that a lot of immigrants “have wreaked havoc upon communities.”

And there’s so much more.

          Fox's week from hell      Cache   Translate Page      

Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

Madison Avenue advertising executives are scheduled to visit Fox News’ studio on Wednesday for an event unique in the right-wing network’s history: an emergency pitch to major media buyers that they should not abandon the network. It’s been a brutal few years for Fox’s advertiser relations, as numerous blue-chip companies have pulled their ads from the programs of star hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham in light of their bigoted and unhinged commentary. Fox’s executives have responded by trying to stem these losses with a public relations effort refocusing attention on the network’s “news” side anchors like Chris Wallace and Bret Baier, whom they argue are adept journalists. This week’s sit-down will make that case to the advertising industry, with Fox arguing that its controversies are behind it and media buyers shouldn't be afraid to advertise on the network, particularly on Fox's "news" programs.

This argument is deeply flawed. Fox's business model is built around its vitriolic right-wing hosts, who use rage and fear to stir up their audience and keep them coming back for more. As long as that is the case, the network's advertisers will find themselves in the center of a constant stream of controversies whenever the extremism and bigotry of Fox stars become apparent to anyone outside of their viewers. And Fox can't cordon off its "news" side from its "opinion" stars -- the former play a key role in bolstering the propaganda machine built around the latter.

Given that Fox is asking the advertising industry to kindly ignore the bile coming out of the mouths of the network’s most famous personalities, Fox's executives were likely hoping for at least a quiet PR week leading into the meeting to help them make their case. It hasn’t worked out that way. Instead, Fox has suffered the week from hell, with its propaganda and bigotry triggering an escalating series of brutal headlines that lay bare the rot at the heart of the network. And the network’s fumbling efforts to staunch its nightmarish, self-inflicted wounds only make the situation worse.

The week began with an 11,000-word reported piece in the nation’s pre-eminent news magazine by one of its most celebrated reporters detailing the network’s effective merger with President Donald Trump’s White House and its emergence as a “state TV” apparatus supporting his administration. Jane Mayer’s New Yorker piece wedded damning new details of journalistic malfeasance to first-rate storytelling, providing readers with a horrifying picture of Fox operations diametrically opposed to the one that the network’s executives try to paint.

Mayer’s story had legs. For several days, the story was a major topic of debate throughout the media. On Thursday, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez cited it in announcing that the party would not partner with Fox for a presidential primary debate, preventing Fox executives from being able to crow that its “news” side is considered as credible as any other, rather than an essential cog in a corrupt machine. By Saturday, CNN President Jeff Zucker was openly describing Fox as “propaganda” and arguing that its journalists “work at a place that has done tremendous damage to this country.”

In its effort to shape Mayer’s story and its response to criticism following the article’s publication, Fox’s PR team sought to focus attention on the efforts of its news side. After the DNC severely damaged that argument by rejecting the network’s pitch for a primary debate, some of those very same news-side personalities went on the attack, accusing critics of “Fox derangement syndrome.”

The weekend brought no respite for Fox.

On Saturday night, Fox host Jeanine Pirro responded to the controversy surrounding Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) use of anti-Semitic tropes with a monologue steeped in unhinged Islamophobic bigotry. Pirro suggested that Omar’s comments were rooted in her identity as a practicing Muslim. “Think about it: Omar wears a hijab," Pirro said. "Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” Pirro’s remarks triggered an immediate outcry, with commentators on the right and left pointing out that they were disgraceful and un-American.

More than 24 hours later, Fox finally responded, issuing a statement with no name attached saying that the network “strongly condemn[s]” the comments and that “we have addressed the matter with [Pirro] directly.” The network has repeatedly used the “addressed the matter” construction over the years when trying to make problematic stories go away. Fox made no mention of any other sanctions against its host, and if she received any sort of stern talking-to, it obviously had no effect, as Fox’s release also included a statement from Pirro in which she did not apologize, express remorse, or say that it wouldn’t happen again.

By the time Fox’s PR team finally got around to acknowledging their Pirro problem, they were already fielding questions about an impending Carlson crisis. On Sunday night, Media Matters released a series of clips featuring the Fox host using sexist, misogynistic, and perverted language about women and young girls -- including defenses of statutory rape -- during regular appearances on a shock jock’s radio show between 2006 and 2011 (Fox hired Carlson in 2009). Carlson’s show hemorrhaged advertisers last year due to his frequent use of white nationalist rhetoric.

Carlson’s remarks are disgusting. But as The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple points out, Fox can’t express shock over them because they are also entirely consistent with Carlson’s commentary, before and after he joined Fox, on its airwaves and off of them. 

And so far, Fox is publicly expressing … nothing. The network has not commented at all despite a burgeoning firestorm in response to Carlson’s remarks. So far, the network has let its host speak for himself, allowing Carlson to issue a statement on Sunday night in which he lied about what he did and sneered at the notion that he might “express the usual ritual contrition.” Then on Monday night, he devoted his opening monologue to lashing out at the "outrage machine" of his critics and declaring that "we will never bow to the mob." Perhaps boxing in his employer, he also claimed that "Fox News is behind us" (Wemple subsequently confirmed with Fox PR that was the case). Minutes later, Media Matters released a second set of clips from Carlson's shock jock interviews, these dealing with Carlson's racist commentary, including references to Iraqis as "semiliterate primitive monkeys” who “don’t use toilet paper or forks.”  

Those are just the major stories that have battered Fox over the last week. Then there are the ones that might cause a PR crisis somewhere else, but are sadly typical for the network: The host who mixes up two Black interviewers; the regular guest who calls for Trump to use the National Guard to break up protests on college campuses; the network personality’s report that she was sexually harassed by Fox founder Roger Ailes; our Fox-obsessed president tweeting misquotes from the network’s programming to burnish his economic record; a host using the language of white nationalists to criticize Democrats about immigration; a former network co-president, still drawing a salary from the network, forced to resign from his job overseeing Trump’s communications.

Some of these stories were shocking. But if you’ve been paying attention to Fox in recent years, none of them was surprising. Pro-Trump propaganda, anti-Muslim hate, and misogynistic commentary have all been not just tolerated but rewarded by the network for years. And that’s the danger for Fox advertisers and media buyers who recommend placing ads on the network -- they have no plausible deniability whatsoever. A new round of headlines just as bad, about conduct just as deplorable, is always just around the corner.

What may prove particularly unnerving for advertisers is Fox’s unwillingness to take real action in response to these rolling PR crises. And this shows the connection between the three major stories that hit the network over the past week: Pirro and Carlson are effectively protected by Fox’s status as a pro-Trump propaganda outlet. Fox executives may issue an unsigned statement criticizing Pirro’s remarks, but it’s difficult to imagine them pushing for accountability from a close friend and sometime adviser to a president who watches her show each week. The same goes for Carlson, whose commentary Trump loves and whose show the president often tweets about. And again, this sort of unhinged and extreme rhetoric is what keeps Fox's audience loyal.

Fox is desperately trying to shore up its relationships with advertisers precisely because of this dynamic. At any other news organization, one could expect this level of vitriol to trigger some type of accountability. But at Fox, with few exceptions that almost always feature low-profile commentators, this simply does not happen.

And with Fox unwilling to act, activists who hope to actually impact the network’s programming have little recourse except to the network’s advertisers, creating the blowback that Fox’s Wednesday meeting seeks to heal.

Benedict, you don't believe in the Bible - what do you believe in ? If I weren't a believer, I would still see all the same "symptoms" of our decaying society and still believe that we are heading for disaster - an unavoidable disaster, and not just one based on prophecy. Separating scripture from the equation, my assessment of world conditions based on fact alone would not differ from what I hold now of the "real world" component to be true. We today, are not facing just a handful of issues - the battle lines are not restricted to just a front or two. We are facing an assault that encompasses us on a near 360 degree arc. There is not one element within our collective societies that is not just under attack but is succumbing to one degree or another. Had the murderess made it to the WH, the condition of America would be near unrecognizable now. The last step to disaster was on the door-step and nearly made it in. Even without citing prophecy, America is so utterly divided that its' fall is inevitable - no house divided can remain standing, and as they have failed to get the guns out of people's hands, a civil war is likely ahead and all should prepare for such disruptions associated with a major upheaval. This much we can do, but thinking that a "fix" - the right policy or piece of legislation - is going to make all the difference, is fanciful at best and delusional at worst. Again, even removing God's prophecies from the discussion, we have gone past the point of no return. One way or another, we are screaming towards a wall and there is no stopping it now. Trump is as a reprieve, and his time will end soon. The decades long decay affecting America was foisted on her by Dem. and Rep. alike, and for the most part, Trump is not one of them. Now, if that was all I had, you could rightfully call me a nihilist and declare that fighting for something is better than just accepting "fate", and were I not a believer, I would be advocating for an escalated response now just for the sake of not going quietly into the night, even though my hope was gone. However, my inclusion of everything Biblical as it relates to today's events, would not only support and explain exactly what is going on and why, it also gives an entirely different perspective of what we are facing and what we need to prepare for, and how limited our response actually is. Throwing sandbags on the beach might make it seem like you're "doing" something, but it won't mean a thing when the tsunami hits. Finding higher ground means accepting the inevitability of the coming destruction and may seem like the least powerful response, but it is the most prudent. Finding out how all this fits explicitly with Biblical prophecy and what that means to you, is the first place to start.

Tin Biển Đông

Báo Dân Trí dẫn lời ông John Bolton, Cố vấn an ninh Nhà Trắng: Mỹ sẽ ngăn Trung Quốc “lập tỉnh mới” trên Biển Đông. Trong cuộc phỏng vấn với đài Fox News hôm 10/3/2019, ông Bolton cho biết: “Họ đang chiếm giữ các đá, bãi cạn và đảo, đồng thời xây dựng các căn cứ quân sự trên đó (Biển Đông). Đây là điều hoàn toàn không thể chấp nhận được. Đó là lý do chúng tôi sẽ tiếp tục tiến hành các cuộc diễn tập tự do hàng hải”.

Báo Người Việt bàn về tuyên bố gần đây của Hà Nội: Tiến triển trong thương lượng “Bộ Quy tắc ứng xử” ở Biển Đông. Bài viết lưu ý: Hồi tháng 8/2018, các ngoại trưởng ASEAN và Trung Quốc họp ở Singapore, cũng có “những lời loan báo hồ hởi là các bên đã thỏa thuận được một bộ khung duy nhất để dựa trên đó đàm phán vào chi tiết cho bộ COC”, nhưng đến nay tình hình Biển Đông vẫn chưa có gì khả quan hơn, vẫn tiềm ẩn rủi ro chiến tranh và Trung Quốc tiếp tục quân sự hóa khu vực này.

Vụ án Kim Jong-nam: Siti Aisyah được trả tự do, Đoàn Thị Hương vẫn bị giam

Tin vui trong vụ án giết ông Kim Jong-nam, anh trai của lãnh tụ Bắc Hàn: Một trong hai nghi can trực tiếp tham gia ám sát là cô Siti Aisyah, người Indonesia, đã được trả tự do hôm 11/3 vừa qua, sau hai năm bị giam. Nhưng tin buồn là, nghi phạm người Việt Nam, cô Đoàn Thị Hương vẫn tiếp tục bị giam. VOA đưa tin: Vụ Kim Jong-nam: Nghi phạm Indonesia được thả, Đoàn Thị Hương ở lại.

Về lý do cô Aisyah được thả, báo Thanh Niên đưa tin: Vụ xử Đoàn Thị Hương: Hé lộ nguyên nhân công dân Indonesia được thả. Chính phủ Indonesia cho biết, họ đã kiên trì vận động ngoại giao cấp cao cho công dân của họ là Siti Aisyah. Ông Yasonna Laoly, Bộ trưởng Luật pháp và Dân quyền Indonesia đã gửi thư cho ông Tommy Thomas, Tổng chưởng lý Malaysia, đề nghị phóng thích cô Aisyah. Bức thư của ông Laoly đã mang lại kết quả có hậu: Cô Aisyah đã được trả tự do ngay tại phiên tòa ngày 11/3 vừa qua.

LS Trần Vũ Hải đặt câu hỏi: “Nhà nước Indonesia đã cố gắng hết mình để công dân của họ được tự do. Còn nhà nước Việt nam? Nếu Đoàn Thị Hương tiếp tục bị tạm giam (như đã hơn hai năm qua), liệu chúng ta còn tiếp tục tự hào về thân phận của một người quốc tịch Việt?

Cuộc chiến giữa nước mắm truyền thống với nước mắm Masan

Báo Dân Trí có bài phỏng vấn TS Trần Thị Dung, chuyên gia nước mắm Việt: Không thể đứng yên để “quy trình” phá hỏng nước mắm truyền thống được. TS Dung cho biết: “Khi người ta viết về quy trình, nguời ta chỉ đưa mỗi định nghĩa về sản phẩm là đã phục vụ mục tiêu đánh đồng nước mắm truyền thống với nước mắm công nghiệp”.

Thứ “quy trình” này sẽ “sinh ra nhiều ràng buộc bằng hành chính, mệnh lệnh và khiến cho các yếu tố sản xuất nước mắm độc đáo, khu biệt, gia truyền có một không hai và tạo điểm đặc biệt… bị đánh bật ra khỏi tiêu chuẩn chất lượng, loại bỏ chúng khỏi đời sống”. Nước mắm là “nghề cha ông để lại, là di sản của nghề biển, văn minh nông nghiệp mà không nước nào có được”, giờ đang bị bức tử bởi những lãnh đạo khát tiền.

RFA đặt câu hỏi: Ai có thể giúp giữ được nước mắm truyền thống? Kỹ sư Lê Anh phân tích về tương lai đầy rủi ro của nước mắm truyền thống VN sau sự cố truyền thông arsen năm 2016: “Rất nhiều các hộ dân hoặc các doanh nghiệp sản xuất nước mắm truyền thống hoặc là bị giải thể, hoặc là phải bán nước mắm dạng thô cho hãng nước mắm công nghiệp bởi sự cạnh tranh khốc liệt lấn át về thị phần”. Nước mắm truyền thống vẫn đang thua trong cuộc chiến truyền thông với nước mắm công nghiệp.

Trước đó, chiến dịch truyền thông tố cáo nước mắm truyền thống nhiễm arsen hồi năm 2016, gây ảnh hưởng rất xấu, đẩy các hộ dân và doanh nghiệp làm nước mắm truyền thống đến bờ vực. Trang Đầu Tư Tài Chính VN bàn thêm về phía sau bê bối nước mắm nhiễm arsen: “Hội bảo vệ người tiêu dùng bị oan”. Bài báo cho biết: “Tổ chức phải chịu trách nhiệm cho việc thông tin sai sự thật về nước mắm này là Vinastas”.

TS Trần Thị Dung kể: “Nhóm làm khảo sát arsen trong nước mắm là nhóm tiêu chuẩn chứ không phải nhóm bảo vệ người tiêu dùng. Nhưng vì đứng chung với nhau trong Vinastas nên nhóm bảo vệ người tiêu dùng bị oan. Họ không làm chuyện này”.

Bài thứ hai trong loạt bài trên trang Diễn Đàn Doanh Nghiệp về số phận long đong của nước mắm truyền thống: Phải tự “cứu” mình! PGS. TS Nguyễn Duy Thịnh cho rằng, “dù có hay không có tiêu chuẩn quốc gia về nước mắm thì các doanh nghiệp sản xuất nước mắm truyền thống vẫn phải tự cứu mình bởi quá trình hội nhập, đặc biệt với hàng loạt các FTA sẽ ngày càng nâng cao áp lực cạnh tranh cũng như tiêu chuẩn thị trường”.

“Lỗi hệ thống”

Trong phiên họp thứ 32 của Ủy ban Thường vụ Quốc hội vào sáng 11/3/2019, Tổng Kiểm toán Nhà nước phản biện thông tin Bộ trưởng Tài chính đưa ra, báo Thanh Tra đưa tin. Theo đó, Tổng KTNN Hồ Đức Phớc phản bác thông tin “10 vụ doanh nghiệp kiện quyết định truy thu thuế dựa trên kết luận của KTNN thì cơ quan thuế thua cả 10” của Bộ trưởng Bộ Tài chính Đinh Tiến Dũng.

Ông Phớc lập luận: “Các bằng chứng của kiểm toán không phải từ doanh nghiệp nên nói kết luận kiểm toán sai khiến doanh nghiệp kiện là hoàn toàn không đúng”. Trước đó, Bộ trưởng Dũng cho rằng, “từ năm 2013 – 2018, đã phát sinh 14 vụ kiện của doanh nghiệp theo kết luận của KTNN. Trong đó, xử 10 vụ thì cơ quan thuế thua cả 10”.

Bên cạnh đó, Tổng Kiểm toán Nhà nước trần tình về vụ việc Unilever và Sabeco, theo báo Sài Gòn Giải Phóng. Đối với Unilever, ông Hồ Đức Phớc cho biết: “Ba bên xác nhận lại là 575 tỉ đồng, doanh nghiệp chấp nhận phải nộp 316 tỉ đồng và phần còn lại thì không cung cấp được bằng chứng”.

Trường hợp Sabeco, ông Phớc nói: “Khi vào kiểm toán (thời điểm đó chưa bán cho Thái Lan) thì Kiểm toán Nhà nước đã phát hiện khoản chưa chia 2.700 tỷ đồng nên kiểm toán yêu cầu phải chia khoản này”.

Báo Sài Gòn Giải Phóng đặt câu hỏi: Kiểm toán Nhà nước cũng có thể bị kiện ra toà? Bài báo cho biết: “Cần sửa đổi lại Điều 7 Luật Kiểm toán hiện hành theo hướng bổ sung quyền kiến nghị, khiếu nại đối với báo cáo kiểm toán cho các cơ quan, tổ chức, đơn vị có liên quan đến việc sử dụng, quản lý tài chính công, tài sản công”. Đây chính là căn cứ để các cơ quan, tổ chức, cá nhân có thể kiện KTNN nếu cơ quan này làm sai.

“Củi” dầu khí

Báo Pháp Luật TP HCM đưa tin: Hai cựu lãnh đạo Vietsovpetro chuẩn bị hầu tòa. Theo đó, TAND TP Hà Nội chuẩn bị mở phiên tòa xử sơ thẩm vụ án “Lạm dụng chức vụ, quyền hạn chiếm đoạt tài sản” tại Liên doanh Việt – Nga (VSP) vào các ngày 21 và 22/3/2019. Đây là một trong các vụ án thuộc giai đoạn hai của vụ Hà Văn Thắm, cựu Chủ tịch HĐQT OceanBank “chi lãi ngoài hợp đồng để chăm sóc khách hàng”.

Hai bị cáo là ông Từ Thành Nghĩa, cựu Tổng GĐ VSP và ông Võ Quang Huy, cựu kế toán trưởng VSP, hai người này đã “quyết định việc gửi tiền của VSP vào OceanBank” trong giai đoạn 2013 và 2014 để trục lợi.

Báo Dân Việt bàn về phiên xử cựu lãnh đạo Vietsovpetro: Người bị tuyên án tử lại ra tòa. Đó là ông Nguyễn Xuân Sơn, cựu Tổng GĐ OceanBank được triệu tập với tư cách là người có quyền lợi nghĩa vụ liên quan. Trước đó, ông Sơn từng bị tuyên án tử hình trong vụ xử Hà Văn Thắm và đồng phạm năm 2017 về tội “Cố ý làm trái quy định của Nhà nước về quản lý kinh tế gây hậu quả nghiêm trọng”.

Các vụ “ăn” đất

Vụ ông Trần Mẫn, ở huyện Châu Đức, Bà Rịa – Vũng Tàu tố cáo Công ty Đông Á, chủ đầu tư dự án KCN Đá Bạc Châu Đức, bắt giữ người trái phép và tự ý san ủi vườn tiêu của ông này khi chưa được bàn giao mặt bằng, báo Người Lao Động đặt câu hỏi: Vì sao người tố cáo không đồng ý kết quả xác minh của Công an huyện Châu Đức?

Theo đó, phía công an cho rằng, Công ty Đông Á không có dấu hiệu của tội hủy hoại tài sản và giam giữ người trái pháp luật. Ông Mẫn kể, khi biết vườn tiêu bị phá, ông vội về ngăn cản nhưng không được, “do hết cách ông mới dùng xăng đổ lên người dọa tự thiêu thì công nhân mới dừng lại. Ông Mẫn không hù dọa đòi đốt xe mà đó chỉ là hành động vu khống”. Công an lại không hề xét đến lời chứng của người nhà ông.

Công an thị xã Điện Bàn, Quảng Nam vừa khởi tố nguyên Chủ tịch phường “ăn” đất nghĩa trang, theo báo Người Đưa Tin. Các ông Thân Cầu, cựu Chủ tịch UBND phường Điện Nam Đông, ông Đỗ Búp, cựu Trưởng ban Quản trang Điện Nam Đông và Ngô Hải Bình, thành viên ban quản trang đều bị khởi tố về tội lạm dụng chức vụ, quyền hạn trong khi thi hành công vụ.

Trong thời gian giữ chức Chủ tịch UBND phường Điện Nam Đông, từ tháng 9/2005 đến tháng 7/2015, ông Cầu đã “ký giấy xác nhận có đất nghĩa trang không đúng đối tượng, không đúng diện tích cho 40 trường hợp với diện tích hơn 4.500m2”. Những cán bộ đó đã bán đất nghĩa trang trái phép, thu lợi hơn 1,9 tỉ đồng.

Chuyện ở Phú Quốc: Cán bộ công an môi giới đất, bị tố lừa đảo, đánh người tại trụ sở, theo trang Doanh Nghiệp VN. Ông Phạm Quý Hùng ở Hà Nội, tố cáo ông Phạm Quốc Hưng, công an thị trấn Dương Đông, Phú Quốc “đã tham gia lừa đảo chiếm đoạt của ông Hùng 2 tỉ đồng. Không những thế, ông Phạm Quốc Hưng còn lợi dụng mình là CA đã tổ chức bắt giữ và đánh đập ông Hùng ngay tại trụ sở CA thị trấn Dương Đông”.

Vụ bê bối thi viên chức

Ngày 11/3/2019, UBND tỉnh Quảng Ngãi yêu cầu điều tra vụ Giám đốc Sở Nội vụ “gửi gắm” người thân thi viên chức, VietNamNet đưa tin. Trước đó, ông Trần Minh Điệp, Phó ban Tuyên giáo Huyện ủy Trà Bồng “tố cáo GĐ Sở Nội vụ ông Đoàn Dụng có hành vi trù dập ông”, vì ông Điệp từ chối giúp thí sinh mà ông Dụng “gửi gắm” trong kỳ thi tuyển giáo viên năm 2017-2018.

Ông Điệp kể, đã nhận nhiều tin nhắn từ ông Dụng, “với nội dung gửi gắm người thân có tên H. thi tuyển giáo viên bậc Tiểu học của huyện này”, nhưng thí sinh này đã trượt. Sau đó, cơ quan chức năng tỉnh Quảng Ngãi phát hiện nhiều sai phạm trong kỳ thi này và ông Điệp bị kỷ luật. Ông Điệp khẳng định chỉ ra đề thi và “không can thiệp gì vào quá trình thi tuyển. Thế nhưng, ông lại bị kỷ luật nặng nhất đến mức phải chuyển công tác”.

Vụ cô giáo “vào nhà nghỉ với học sinh”

Facebooker Nguyễn Sin phỏng vấn cô giáo Phạm Thị Vũ Hạ, cho biết: Trước đây cô thường xuyên bị chồng này đánh đập dã man và hai người đang trong quá trình ly hôn. Người chồng bắt cô viết cam kết, trong đó có các điều khoản như, không được quyền nuôi con, nhưng phải chu cấp hàng tháng cho con.

Những điều khoản được cho là người chồng bắt ép cô Hạ cam kết thực hiện. Nguồn: Nguyễn Sin

Sau khi ly hôn, cô Hạ phải chấm dứt hết các mối quan hệ khác và phải im lặng, không được tiết lộ thông tin về câu chuyện giữa hai người. Đến khi khi toà tuyên cô giáo được quyền nuôi con, thì vụ bê bối “vào nhà nghỉ với học sinh” xảy ra.

Nguồn: Nguyễn Sin

Mời nghe clip cô Hạ trả lời phỏng vấn:

Vụ cô giáo bị tố vào khách sạn với học sinh lớp 10: Nam sinh khẳng định trong sạch, chờ công an điều tra, trang Đời Sống và Pháp Luật đưa tin. Mẹ của nam sinh bị nghi ngờ vào khách sạn với cô Hạ cho biết: “Cháu nói không có và nói cứ để công an điều tra làm rõ vụ việc, con trong sạch nên chẳng sợ gì”.

Bên cạnh đó, một lớp trưởng bị vạ oan trong vụ cô giáo vào nhà nghỉ với nam sinh lớp 10, theo báo Người Đưa Tin. Bài báo cho biết: Nam sinh lớp 10 bị nghi có quan hệ với cô Hạ là Nguyễn Tuấn A. Tuy nhiên, “cư dân mạng đã vào Facebook cô H. và thấy hình ảnh một học sinh chụp hình chung với cô này và tự ý lấy hình ảnh đó đi bêu rếu trên nhiều trang mạng xã hội”, nam sinh bị hiểu nhầm đó là Trần Công Mẫn.

Mẹ nam sinh Mẫn cho biết: “Tôi đi chợ, hay đi đâu đều bị mọi người chỉ trích và dùng những lời lẽ không hay về tôi và cháu Mẫn. Từ mấy hôm nay, em đã bỏ ăn và còn có ý định bỏ học và đi thật xa để trốn tránh mọi người”.

Giáo dục VN: Nhiều chuyện thị phi

VTC có bài: Hàng loạt những vụ thầy giáo dâm ô học sinh chấn động dư luận. Bài viết điểm mặt một số vụ giáo viên lạm dụng tình dục học sinh bị phát hiện từ tháng 6/2018 đến nay mà báo chí đưa tin, gồm: Vụ “thầy” Dương Trọng Minh xâm hại ít nhất 14 nữ sinh tiểu học ở Bắc Giang, “thầy” Đinh Bằng My lạm dụng hàng loạt nam sinh ở Phú Thọ, “thầy” Nguyễn Quang Chung hãm hiếp 3 học sinh ở Quảng Nam, “thầy” Nguyễn Đình Lê dâm ô 7 nữ sinh ở Hà Nội, “thầy” T.C.D lạm dụng 12 nữ sinh suốt 2 năm ở TP HCM.

Cơ quan ANĐT Bộ Công an đề nghị truy tố vụ gian lận điểm thi ở Hòa Bình, báo Pháp Luật TP HCM đưa tin. Nhóm bị can gồm các ông Nguyễn Quang Vinh, cựu trưởng phòng Khảo thí và Quản lý chất lượng giáo dục, Sở GD&ĐT tỉnh Hòa Bình, Đỗ Mạnh Tuấn, cựu phó hiệu trưởng Trường phổ thông dân tộc nội trú THCS và THPT huyện Lạc Thủy và Nguyễn Khắc Tuấn, cựu chuyên viên phòng Khảo thí và Quản lý chất lượng giáo dục, đều bị truy tố về tội lợi dụng chức vụ, quyền hạn trong thi hành công vụ.

Trang An Ninh Tiền Tệ đặt câu hỏi về vụ gian lận thi cử ở Hoà Bình: Các bị can phối hợp sửa điểm thi như thế nào? Theo đó, trong các buổi tối từ 30/6 đến 3/7/2018, Đỗ Mạnh Tuấn và Nguyễn Khắc Tuấn “sử dụng chìa khóa do Vinh đưa để đột nhập vào phòng cất bài thi và thực hiện việc chỉnh sửa đáp án trên phiếu trả lời trắc nghiệm của các thí sinh theo danh sách đã tập hợp sẵn”. Hai người này dùng dao rọc giấy rạch theo mép niêm phong túi đựng bài thi, lấy phiếu thi trắc nghiệm tẩy đáp án sai và tô lại đáp án đúng.

Bài thứ hai trong loạt bài trên báo Giáo Dục Việt Nam về “liên minh ma quỷ” trong bếp ăn ở các trường học VN: Phù phép thực phẩm bẩn. Bài viết bàn về “tình trạng một suất ăn của học sinh phải gánh trên đấy nào hiệu trưởng, nào bếp, nào công ty thực phẩm. Vì thế các công ty phải cắt giảm lượng thực phẩm và cung cấp thực phẩm bẩn, giá rẻ. Chuyện học sinh bị ngộ độc cũng phần nào dễ hiểu”.

Lâm tặc hoành hành

Để rừng đầu nguồn bị tàn phá, nhiều cán bộ kiểm lâm Thừa Thiên – Huế bị kỷ luật, VTC đưa tin. Ngày 11/3/2019, Ban quản lý Rừng phòng hộ Hương Thủy đã quyết định “cách chức và điều chuyển công tác 1 Đội phó Đội Bảo vệ rừng chuyên trách khe 57… điều chuyển công tác 1 Đội trưởng Đội Bảo vệ rừng chuyên trách khe 57 và kỷ luật 4 nhân viên của đơn vị công tác tại Trạm phối hợp La Ma” trong thời gian xảy ra vụ phá rừng đầu nguồn Tả Trạch.

Môi trường bị tàn phá, ô nhiễm

Vụ sâu biển ăn sạch hàng chục ha ngao giống ở Ninh Bình, VnExpress có bài: Sâu lạ ăn ngao ở Ninh Bình là “giun biển”. Bài viết dẫn lời ông Đỗ Công Thung, từ Viện Tài nguyên và Môi trường Biển, cảnh báo: “Đây là một loài giun, xuất hiện có thể do ô nhiễm môi trường biển. Loài giun này phát triển giống như một chỉ thị thể hiện môi trường đang xấu đi”.

Theo đó, “trong tự nhiên ít loài nào có thể ăn được con ngao, bởi ngao có vỏ cứng và sống dưới lớp cát mềm” nên hiện tượng sâu biển “tấn công” hàng chục ha ngao giống, mấy ngày qua ở Ninh Bình, được xem là “chưa từng có tiền lệ”.

BBC viết: Hà Nội ô nhiễm bụi mịn hàng đầu thế giới. Báo cáo chất lượng không khí năm 2018 của Tổ chức Thông tin về Chất lượng không khí toàn cầu IQAir AirVisual khẳng định, “Hà Nội đứng thứ 12 trong 62 thành phố ô nhiễm nhất thế giới”. Một người tên Colin viết trên trang Nonstop Newcomer: “Tôi yêu rất nhiều điều ở Hà Nội, như những hồ nước tuyệt đẹp, các quán cà phê, mức sống rẻ. Nhưng không khí ô nhiễm là nguyên nhân chính khiến tôi không muốn sống ở đây lâu”.

Tucker Carlson and Patrick Moore

What does it take to become a legitimate spokesperson on climate change science and energy policy in the eyes of President Donald Trump and partisan conservative media like Fox News and Breitbart?

If the current worshipping of non-expert and climate science denier Patrick Moore is anything to go by, the only qualification you need is the ability to call first-term Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “pompous little twit” on Twitter.

No other actual expertise is, apparently, necessary. This is fortunate, because Moore has no expertise on climate science.

White Hollywood Leftists Run Giant Scam on Majfior Universities! 
Mar 12, 2019
RUSH: Breaking news! Breaking news! Breaking news! Dadalut! Dadalut! Dadalut! Dadalut! White Leftists Run Giant Scam on Major Universities! White Leftists from Hollywood Running Major Scam on Leftist Universities to Get Incompetent, Worthless Kids into Elite Universities! White Leftist Liberals from Hollywood Exercising White Privilege! One of the biggest scandals to ever hit elite American universities!

No, Pelosi has not taken impeachment off the table! Do not fall for this. (interruption) What? She’s… I know she said she’s taken impeachment off the table. Don’t believe this! Don’t believe this! They’re going to impeach Trump. The objective has never changed: Get his approval numbers down to the thirties if they can, for one reason or another… Look, we’ll get to all that in just a minute, but this breaking news about these white, leftist liberals in Hollywood trying to game the admissions system at major American universities? Holy smokes, folks!

When you unpack, this contains so much. Here are the details: “Actresses Felicity Huffman…” What was she on? What big TV show? It was a Sunday night show. It was about women that cheated on their wives or husbands. (interruption) That’s right! Desperate Housewives. Her husband is William H. Macy. His name is not in these news stories. William H. Macy of Fargo fame. He plays insane lunatics. His name is not even mentioned in the story, but she and her husband are involved in this. Also, an actress named Lori Loughlin.
They’re among more than 50 white liberals “charged in a nationwide college admissions cheating scandal that involved paying up to $6 million to place their children into elite universities according to court records revealed Tuesday. The scam involved placing students in top universities like Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, USC,” which stands for the University of Spoiled Children (Isn’t that right, Kraig? It’s exactly what it is.) “…UCLA and the University of Texas.” It was run by a guy in California whose last name is Singer, who helped parents get their (I guess) hapless, unqualified white liberal kids into the schools through bribes.

But that’s only half of this. The scam is they’re donating money to this fraudster who’s running a charity. They got to deduct the money that they paid as bribe money to get their kids into these schools. They double dipped! Wealthy, filthy rich, white liberal Hollywood actresses scamming major American universities, scamming the American taxpayer, scamming the IRS. You just wait. The Russians are going to be said to have some kind of role in this before it’s all over. It says, “Most of the students did not know their admission to the school was due to a bribe…”

Oh, really? Well, wait ’til you hear some of the other details and then we can determine the veracity of that. The children’s parents — and we’re talking about, what, 18, 19 years old here, maybe older? “The children’s parents would allegedly pay a specified amount of money fully aware it would be used to gain college admission. The money would then go toward an SAT or ACT administrator or a college athletic coach who would fake a profile for the prospective” white, liberal children “regardless of their athletic ability, according to the charging documents.”

Felicity Huffman and her husband Bill Macy “allegedly helped their daughter with her college admission by making a ‘purported charitable contribution of $15,000…to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme,’ the documents said. ‘Huffman later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so.’ The court documents also stated that [Lori Loughlin] agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team…”

The USC crew team! Do you know what crew is? It’s what they do in Boston when you see them at the beginning of the Banacek TV show. They’re rowing boats! That’s what crewing is! The USC crew team? Anyway, here’s how it would work. They would say that their kids wanted admission to USC because they had great prowess in crew and they wanted to be on the crew team. So they ran the scam, they got admitted, and then the kids would say on the first day — and this is why I don’t believe the kids didn’t know.
The kids would get in and say, “You know what? I changed my mind. I don’t want to do crew,” or they would fake an injury after the first couple of practices in whatever athletic endeavor that they were using to get in. It was a scam from the get-go — and the double dipping! All of these payments, these bribe payments were made as charitable donations. Now, ostensibly that was to hide their purpose, but it also permitted tax deductions of the payments. We also discover here that these white, rich, leftist Hollywood actresses didn’t trust the system.

They didn’t think their kids could legitimately be admitted to these universities without trying to game the system. Man, oh, man, if there has ever been an open, up-front illustration of leftist white privilege, I don’t know what else it is. And then, of course, the elite universities have to have somebody there participating in this! Somebody had to know. The ACT, ACT administrators, whichever, whoever were involved, had to be involved with this ’cause somebody’s getting the bribe money.

Look at the amount of money they paid to get apparently their otherwise ineligible, unqualified kids into the schools. It was $500,000 in the case of Lori Loughlin, and there are 50 others. There are 50 so far that have been identified in this scandal. It was revealed earlier today — within the last hour — by U.S. Attorney’s Office and an IRS agent, claiming they’re gonna continue to track this down and make sure the American taxpayer does not keep getting ripped off in situations like this.

So actress Felicity Huffman and you have a her husband, Bill Macy — and, by the way, neither these actresses’ husbands are named in this story, and this is the first story I have. Now, maybe there have been subsequent stories that have been published since the program began. I haven’t seen them yet. But in the initial story — and this is a Fox News story — the names of the husbands are not included. Why is that? Why are the husbands left out of this? (interruption)

Oh. You mean maybe the husbands didn’t know? Maybe the husbands didn’t…? (interruption) No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. You can’t say the husbands didn’t go along with this. Maybe the husbands didn’t sign the check. Maybe they’re not in charge of the checkbook. (coughs) Excuse me. By the way, I feel fine, folks. Still suffering the ravaging virus that I had last week. It’s just a matter now of clearing out things, but I have occasional sniffles here and occasional indiscriminate cough, but otherwise, I’m fine and dandy.

So “50 people snared in a nationwide college admissions cheating scandal that involved paying up to $6 million to place their children into elite universities,” and I guarantee you if there had been any conservative actors or actresses involved in this, their names would have led this story. Again, the scam involved placing students at top universities Yale, Stanford, Georgetown — ’cause they give away like $3,000 worth of contraceptives every month. Remember that? Stanford, University southern California, UCLA and the University of Texas. It’s run by a guy in California.
His name is not mentioned in the story either, but his last name, I’ve been able to find out, is Singer. He helped parents get their kids into schools through bribes. It has to mean that the parents thought their kids had no other way of getting into these schools. That’s just on the surface of it. That’s kind of in… These people have enough influence without bribing people, I would think, particularly if you’re talking about UCLA or USC. But to have to say that your kids are experts in crew, rowing, and then you get the kid to say, “Ah, I really don’t like crew,” after they get into the university?

You can’t kick them out after that.

Anyway, let me… You can digest this, and there will be more details forthcoming.


RUSH: It turns out that Felicity Huffman’s husband William H. Macy’s not been named, at least in any of the court documents revealed so far. Now, Lori Loughlin… You know, I saw a picture of her in the story. She looks familiar, and I finally found… (interruption) Right. I know she’s from Full House. She’s got this big show on Hallmark called The Laundromat Murders or some such… (interruption) Wind Calls the Heart? Fine. Wind Calls the Heart, Hallmark Channel. I think there are murders that happen in laundromats and she’s a laundromat detective or some such thing. I don’t know.

Anyway, her husband has been indicted in this. You know who this guy is? He is the lead fashion designer for Target. Right on. His name is Mossimo Giannulli. He just signed a deal for $27.8 million with Target, a multiproduct licensing agreement with Target stores for $27.8 million. Their daughters are Isabella and Olivia. (interruption) How’s he gonna plan the Target boardroom? What’s Target famous for? I’m having a… What was the controversy involving Target? I’m… (interruption) Oh, yeah. Everybody and their database was released. Yeah, okay.

So, anyway, I just wanted to correct the record. Bill Macy was not named in any of the court paperwork. He is Felicity Huffman’s husband. “One of the unsealed court documents included indictments against former Yale University women’s soccer coach Rudolph ‘Rudy’ Meredith, who has been charged with two counts of wire fraud.” There’s mail fraud in this too. This features a tremendous number of years in prison if these people end up being found guilty of a full boat of charges, because once you start getting mail fraud and wire fraud… (interruption)

Garage Sale Mystery. That’s it! I don’t know why I thought The Laundromat Mystery. Ha-ha-ha. Don’t… (interruption) The Garage Sale Mystery, Lori Loughlin.
It’s classic, is it not, trying to game the system paying and defrauding and finding people willing to take the bribe money. But the big deal to me is funneling these bribe payments through a charity in order to be able to deduct it, which, you know, involves some degree of financial understanding. Target was also in the news not long ago for… I think they were the first to install unisex bathrooms, in addition to having the major data breach.


RUSH: Okay. I’m gonna switch it up because people want to weigh in on the rich white leftists gaming the university admissions system, and I want to take their calls. If I don’t now and I get into Pelosi and get into calls in the next hour, when we go to the phones, people are gonna be talking about the rich white liberal Hollywood scandal. So I don’t want that much separation between the topic — the subject — and the calls on it. So let’s start in Elkhart, Indiana. This is Rhonda, and I’m glad you called. Hi.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. The tragedy of this scandal is that when parents bribe and manipulate the challenges of life away from their kids, they are robbing them of so much opportunity to build character in the pursuit of their dreams. One of my sons is a political science major, and his dream has been to get into Hillsdale College. I watched him take two rejection letters, and every time he got back up and he swung again. And on the third try, Rush, he got that admissions packet that he was wanting.

As his mom, I am so thankful for the lessons that that opportunity has given him. And I know it’s gonna make such a difference for him throughout his life — and as he pursues a career in politics — to have that inner strength that says, “I won’t take failure. I will try again.” He made a goal of getting an internship at a local congressman’s office so that he could get the experience and get that letter of recommendation. And you know what? He got that too. And I just think that he has such a bright future.

RUSH: Well, it’s a good point, but let me be honest about something here, folks. It’s not new that parents try to help their kids along. I mean, there’s all kinds of examples of it throughout recorded human history. I know people whose whole lives have been built around making connections to get their kids jobs here, jobs there. Now, I’m not talking about bribing or defrauding the IRS or anything. I mean, this is an extreme example. But the idea that parents have attempted to assist their kids getting ahead?

There’s nothing new about that, and there’s nothing particularly untoward about it, unless it involves breaking the law and arranging for a kid to do something he’s not qualified to do. I agree with you totally about the life lesson here, that you should not ever rob anyone. This is my major argument against liberalism. It takes dignity away from every practitioner. Victimology and liberalism destroy dignity. They destroy the opportunity for human accomplishment, human achievement — the really great self-esteem that comes with actually having accomplished something on your own, earning something on your own.
That’s irreplaceable, and people who have that denied get short-changed — and, in worst cases, they end up expecting influence to grease the skids for them. I know the temptation was probably great for you to get involved and help your kid get what he wants. Again, it’s human nature and it’s one of the things that parents see sometimes as even a responsibility. So I don’t want to sit here and be perceived as somebody who doesn’t know this kind of thing goes on. It does. Not the Felicity Huffman, rich white liberal Hollywood actress business here.

Just the idea here that connections, networking, this kind of thing. I mean, it is practically how Washington, D.C., gets staffed, folks! It’s how the administrative state gets populated. I mean, the Ivy League is a training ground and proving ground and a population resource center for the Washington administrative state. (interruption) Uh… (sigh) I’ve just been asked, “Are you saying there is no level playing field?” Well, playing field, that’s… It’s a toughie. This is one of the realities of life. Some people are more qualified than others to do certain things.

Some have more aptitude for certain things than others. We are all different. The level playing field concept is one in which anybody seeking their passion, following their dreams, has equal access to the opportunities on the playing field. That’s what a level playing field is. A level playing field does not mean guaranteeing results. It’s not guaranteed outcome. It’s opportunity, period. This is a gross exaggeration of this criminal behavior and the complicity of the universities in this.

This is a gross, gross illegal manifestation of it. Do you not know anybody who has tried to get their kids a job? Let’s say that you… I don’t know. You know the congressman in your district, and your kid wants to go into politics, and you think an internship with your congressman might be a good deal. Would you call the congressman and put your…? Of course, you would! Of course, you would! Would you bribe your congressman? Well, of course not.

But a lot of people will attempt to leverage relationships they have with people for the benefit of, not just their kids, themselves, for crying out loud. It is the way of the world. Now, I happen to choose, in my life, a business where I didn’t have any of that because (sigh) I didn’t know anybody that could leverage me in broadcasting and in radio. But it’s a, nevertheless, true point that she’s making. It’s a very fine line, because you don’t want to rob your kids not only the opportunity succeed, but the opportunity to fail. There is so much to learn in failure.
Everybody does it.

Everybody knows how to do it.

It’s what you do after you fail that determines who you are and what kind of person you are. And there are parents who don’t want their kids to fail, particularly now ’cause (sobbing), “It’s so painful! It’s so hurtful! It’s so unfair!” So you try to grease the skids so your kid never fails and never learns proper life lessons. I’ve had people…. Hillsdale College is a partner of this radio program. I can’t tell you the number of people who (muttering), “Uh, could you… Could you, you know…?” I’m not gonna do it. If I do it once, I’ve gotta… I’m not gonna do it. I’m not gonna leverage a relationship I have with Hillsdale in any way, shape, manner, or form like that. It’s the cleanest way, and will not violate my sense of duty within the partnership to not leverage it this way.


RUSH: We’ll get back to those of you on the phones that want to talk about the university cheating scandal — the wealthy, white, leftist liberals in Hollywood trying to game admissions for their children to major American universities. Now, look, folks. Let’s not pretend to be naive here. We know that parents want to get their kids into the best schools they possibly can as part of being parents. Particularly when you talk about education, that’s what… Regardless of how corrupt our system has become, it still is a fact of life that American parents want their kids to get into the best school they can get ’em into.

Now, we’re not being naive here about this. We’re not acting like the white, rich leftists in Hollywood are doing something nobody else does. It’s the way they went about it. It was using their wealth and using their privilege. In fact, somebody just sent me a tweet here from Lori Loughlin that went back to February 25th of this year… No! Yeah, I guess it is. Tweet: “There are more important things than money. Like doing the right thing. Words to live by.” That is a Lori Loughlin tweet. Now, you know who it is that says there’s more to life than money?
Who is it that says that? People with money! And you know why they say it? It’s because they know it’s damn well true. They started out and maybe didn’t have much. They’ve gotten a lot of money. Back when they didn’t have money, they thought money would answer every problem, all their prayers, and it doesn’t. So they then realize that and come out with this flowery stuff, “There’s more to life than money. There are more important things in life.”

Yeah, they don’t say that before they earn it. They say it after they earned it, because it doesn’t answer all of the questions or solve all of the problems. (interruption) Well, it… (interruption) Yeah, it… (chuckling) Snerdley’s out there shouting at me. “Well, it does make life better, doesn’t it?” I don’t even want… I don’t want to go down this road. Yeah, it does, but it’s… (sigh) Let me just leave it at that. Yeah, it does. (interruption)

Okay, fine. There’s nothing else to be gained by going any further than this. The point is parents have been trying to do everything they can. Look at the times in Washington when vouchers have been provided to poor families, African-American families. They line up for weeks to get those, because they want the best for their kids. Everybody does, except those that… Well, sadly there are those that don’t care about that, but most people — in your average, normal circumstance — want the best for their kids.

And when you talk about education, it’s the top of the list that they want to do for ’em. And this is an instance of gaming and cheating the system here with the help of the universities involved. And what this does is tell everybody else that the admissions system can be or is gamed and isn’t legitimate. And so every system that’s set up that tells everybody, “You gotta get in by passing this test, getting this score, doing that…”

You’ve got gazillions of people following the rules, trying to get in the way they’re told they have to get in because they don’t have money to spread around — and they’re finding out now that the case and system is rigged against them. I’m sorry, since the left has politicized everything, I will point out that it’s leftists that what caught violating the law, gaming the system. Maybe not all of them are. Who knows? We don’t know all the names here.

But since we’re talking Hollywood, what are the odds?

In July 2018, former Fox News co-President Bill Shine joined the White House staff as deputy chief of staff for communications and assistant to President Trump. He wasn't the first — or only — Fox News personality to align with the president. In November, Fox News host Sean Hannity, who reportedly speaks to Trump "almost daily," faced criticism after joining Trump onstage during a rally. And New Yorker journalist Jane Mayer reports that 21st Century Fox Chairman Rupert Murdoch speaks to Trump on a weekly basis and that Fox Business Network anchor Lou Dobbs has been "patched into" Oval Office meetings. "In past White Houses there have been favored members of the press, but nothing where someone is so close in that they are coordinating on a daily basis with the president," Mayer tells Fresh Air . She adds: "Some of the people who are still hosting shows on Fox are seen by many of the people who are in and around the White House — including some of the White House staff — as basically

          DOJ Told FBI Not To Charge Hillary, Lisa Page Reveals What The 'Insurance Policy' Was      Cache   Translate Page      
House Judiciary Committee members released the transcript of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page's testimony in front of the committee last year and it contained several major revelations. One of the biggest revelations was that Page, who was having an affair with then-FBI agent Peter Strzok, said that the infamous "insurance policy" text message was referring to the Russia investigation. "During her interview with the Judiciary Committee in July 2018, Page was questioned at length about that text - and essentially confirmed this referred to the Russia investigation while explaining that officials were proceeding with caution, concerned about the implications of the case while not wanting to go at 'total breakneck speed' and risk burning sources as they presumed Trump wouldn't be elected anyway," Fox News reported. "Further, she confirmed investigators only had a 'paucity' of evidence at the start." Page and Strzok, who both hated then-candidate Donald Trump and were pro-Hillary Clinton, were involved in the FBI's initial counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign. In an August 15, 2016 text message, Strzok texted Page: "I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in [deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe's] office that there's no way he gets elected -- but I'm afraid we can't take that risk. It's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you're 40..." The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro wrote the following about the text message when it was released in December 2017: Page also indicated that the decision to not charge Clinton with felony gross negligence in her email scandal came at the direction of the Obama Justice Department. "We did not blow over gross negligence. We, in fact and, in fact, the Director because on its face, it did seem like, well, maybe there's a potential here for this to be the charge," Page said. "And we had multiple conversations, multiple conversations with the Justice Department about charging gross negligence." Page continued: "And the Justice Department's assessment was that it was both constitutionally vague, so that they did not actually feel that they could permissibly bring that charge, and also that it had either never been done or had only been done once like 99 years ago. And so they did not feel that they could sustain a charge." "When you say advice you got from the Department, you're making it sound like it was the Department that told you: 'You're not going to charge gross negligence because we're the prosecutors and we're telling you we're not going to," Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) said to Page. Ratcliffe tweeted out an excerpt of Page's testimony, writing: "Lisa Page confirmed to me under oath that the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information."

          Pressure mounts on FAA as more countries ground or ban the Boeing 737 MAX 8      Cache   Translate Page      

aapsky/iStock(WASHINGTON) -- As more countries and airlines around the world grounded the Boeing 737 MAX 8 or banned the plane from their airspace Tuesday, pressure was growing on the Federal Aviation Administration to take similar action in the United States.

Tuesday evening, acting Federal Aviation Administration Administrator Daniel Elwell said in a statement that the agency continues to extensively review all available data and aggregate safety performance information from operators and pilots, but that, "Thus far, our review shows no systemic performance issues and provides no basis to order grounding the aircraft."

Adding to that pressure was uncertainty over how -- and how soon -- critical questions might be answered about what might have caused Sunday's crash of the Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX 8 that killed 157 people just six minutes after takeoff.

"In the course of our urgent review of data on the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crash, if any issues affecting the continued air-worthiness of the aircraft are identified, the FAA will take immediate and appropriate action," Elwell's statement concluded.

It was still unclear Tuesday how Ethiopia would handle retrieval of data from the "black boxes" recovered from the wreckage -- the flight data and cockpit voice recorders -- including whether it would ask for help from the U.S. or other countries with more sophisticated labs, Ethiopia's lead investigator told ABC News.

Investigators said they would spend at least the next two to three days at the crash site before beginning the process of getting the data recorders analyzed, the country's lead investigator, Amedey Fanta, told ABC News' Chief National Correspondent Matt Gutman at the scene outside Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa.

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency, which often works in tandem with the FAA, announced Tuesday it was suspending all Boeing 737 MAX 8 and MAX 9 (a longer version) operations in Europe -- "taking every step necessary to ensure the safety of passengers."

Because of the uncertainty, the UK Civil Aviation Authority, announced Tuesday that it, too, was banning the 737 MAX 8 from its airspace.

"The UK Civil Aviation Authority has been closely monitoring the situation, however, as we do not currently have sufficient information from the flight data recorder we have, as a precautionary measure, issued instructions to stop any commercial passenger flights from any operator arriving, departing or overflying UK airspace," a statement said.

"The UK Civil Aviation Authority's safety directive will be in place until further notice. We remain in close contact with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and industry regulators globally," the statement continued.

A key question is whether the plane's advanced flight management system -- the autopilot -- might have played a role in the most recent crash as it did in the fatal crash of an Indonesian Airlines 737 MAX 8 last October, In that crash, it appears the pilots failed to disengage the autopilot when the plane's nose began pitching up and down, perhaps because they were unaware of how to do so.

Both planes experienced similar pitch problems right after takeoff.

President Donald Trump spoke by phone with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg Tuesday, White House spokesman Judd Deere confirmed, but he released no other details other than to say "we are continuing to monitor the situation."

On Tuesday evening, Boeing confirmed the conversation to ABC News and said that Muilenburg reiterated to the president "our position that the MAX aircraft is safe."

Trump weighed in earlier Tuesday, tweeting that today's jetliners were getting dangerously complex -- that "I don't want Albert Einstein to be my pilot" -- and that pilots must be able to "easily and quickly take control of a plane."

 Asked on the Fox News program "Outnumbered" why the president has not ordered the FAA to ground the aircraft, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, "it's early in the process."

She said the White House will be “constant contact through the Department of Transportation, the FAA, to make determinations at the appropriate time.”

In the face of the growing international pressure, Boeing put out an updated statement Tuesday.

"Safety is Boeing’s number one priority and we have full confidence in the safety of the MAX," the statement said. "We understand that regulatory agencies and customers have made decisions that they believe are most appropriate for their home markets. We’ll continue to engage with all of them to ensure they have the information they need to confidently operate their fleets or return them to service.

 "It is also important to note that the Federal Aviation Administration is not mandating any further action at this time, and based on the information currently available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators," the Boeing statement said.

But while Boeing, the FAA and U.S. carriers that operate 72 of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes -- Southwest, American and United -- were standing by the safety of the aircraft, political pressure was rising in Washington.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who is running for president, urged the FAA to follow the lead of other countries and "immediately ground this plane in the United States until its safety can be assured."

Because the FAA has not yet ruled one way or the other, the agency should "air on the side of protecting the flying public until you know for sure what happened," Warren said on ABC News Live's "The Briefing Room" Tuesday afternoon.

In her statement on the issue Tuesday morning, Warren also called out the Trump administration's previous attempts to protect an ongoing Boeing arms deal with Saudi Arabia by not denouncing the country's government, which was accused of murdering Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018.

Pressed if she believed the FAA or Trump administration was protecting Boeing, Warren said, "That's sure what we watched last time."

"For me. I just want to be sure this is not about protecting Boeing's profits, this is about protecting the people who get on those airplanes and count on the fact that they're going to be safe," Warren said on "The Briefing Room."

“Until the cause of the crash is known and it’s clear that similar risks aren’t present in the domestic fleet, I believe all Boeing 737 Max 8 series aircraft operating in the United States should be temporarily grounded,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California, wrote in a letter to the FAA Monday.

Several countries have already taken “this important step,” Feinstein said.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat from Connecticut who sits on the Senate committee that oversees U.S. aviation, echoed Feinstein’s call and said he was encouraging his own family and friends to avoid the planes.

"The 737 MAX 8 should be immediately grounded until the FAA can assure us they are safe,” Blumenthal told reporters on Capitol Hill Tuesday. "I’m advising members of my own family and friends they ought to change planes, change flights, change airlines, whatever they need to do to avoid these 737 Max 8s until they are proven safe -- which right now is very much in doubt."

Blumenthal also urged all airlines to completely waive flight change fees.

Republican Sen. John Thune of South Dakota, who sits on the same Senate committee, said -- "like probably everybody else" -- he would also feel safer "flying some other airplane at the moment." Fellow Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah called for the FAA to ground the aircraft "out of an abundance of caution, and frankly common sense."

House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Peter DeFazio stopped short of asking the FAA to ground the 737 MAX 8 aircraft, but increased pressure on the FAA Tuesday, calling on its leading safety experts to "do what is necessary in a timely manner to provide certainty to the flying public that the nation's aviation system remains exceptionally safe," he said in a statement.

“I remain concerned that international aviation regulators are providing more certainty to the flying public by grounding the 737 MAX 8 than our own FAA – the world leader in aviation safety,” DeFazio, a Democrat from Oregon, said.

Meanwhile, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, a union that represents flight attendants who work for American Airlines, directly urged the airline's CEO Doug Parker to ground the planes pending the results of the investigation and said flight attendants would not be forced to fly if they felt unsafe.

"While we cannot draw premature conclusions, it is critical to work with manufacturers, regulators and airlines to take steps to address our important safety concerns," said APFA's National President Lori Bassani in a statement calling on Parker.

The Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, which represents United employees, said crew and passengers “are expressing concern about the 737 Max 8.”

“It is vitally important that U.S. airlines work with Boeing, the FAA, and the NTSB to address concerns and take steps to ensure confidence for the traveling public and working crews," said AFA-CWA President Sara Nelson.

At least one pilot's union -- the Southwest Airlines Pilots Association -- came out in support of its airline's decision to keep flying the planes. The union is “extremely confident that our entire fleet, including the MAX, is safe based on the facts, intelligence, data and information we presently have,” the group's president, Capt. Jon Weaks, said in a statement.

About one-third of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets around the world were grounded as of Tuesday morning.

On Monday, Ethiopian Airlines, the flag carrier of the East African nation, grounded its remaining Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft "until further notice." Also on Monday, China grounded its 96 jets and Indonesia temporarily grounded its Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet as well. The United Kingdom joined the growing list and grounded its five jets on Tuesday morning.

Singapore has indefinitely banned all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft from flying into and out of the country, as has Australia, Malaysia, Oman and Ireland, as of Tuesday afternoon. None of the countries fly the model themselves.

Airlines in other countries also have announced the grounding of Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleets, including Cayman Airways, South Africa-based airline Comair, Aeromexico, Aerolineas Argentinas, Brazil's largest airline Gol, Morocco's national carrier Royal Air Maroc and South Korean airline Eastar Jet.

The opening monologue from Tucker Carlson's show last night appears on the Fox News website under this headline:
Tucker Carlson: We're becoming an authoritarian society - and the group in charge is coming after Fox News
Savor that for a moment. Republicans control the White House, the Senate, the federal court system including the Supreme Court, and, even after the 2018 midterms, most state houses and state legislative chambers -- yet "the group in charge" of our society is an enemy of conservatism and is "coming after" Carlson and Fox News.

Who's "in charge" of American society, if it's not the mostly Republican government? According to Carlson, it's the people who make dissenters disappear:
Ever notice how certain people have started to disappear? Not vagrants or runaways, the usual missing persons. But fairly prominent, well-educated people with dissenting political opinions. One day you’re watching or reading them online. The next time you check, they’re gone. You can’t find their videos. They’re not showing up in your Facebook feed. Suddenly you can’t buy their books on Amazon.

You Google them to find out what happened and discover they’ve been banned. They’re being called dangerous extremists, bigots and Nazis. For the public good, they’ve been shut down. Disappeared.

You’re a little surprised to hear this. They didn’t seem evil or radical to you. They were just free thinkers, saying something a little different from the party line on CNN. You don’t complain about it, though. You don’t want anyone to know you were watching forbidden videos. There’s a penalty for that.
Who's he talking about? Milo Yiannopoulos? He was dumped by right-wing groups. A mainstream publisher also 86'd his book, but Yiannopoulos was free to publish it himself, which he did. It made the New York Times bestseller list. Want to buy it on Amazon? Here's the link.

Who else? Roseanne Barr? She was on TV, then she published something controversial, and now she's not on TV. No, wait -- that was Kathy Griffin. Actually it was both, wasn't it?

Go on, Tucker.
... It was only a matter of time before they came for Fox News. Of the top dozen news networks in the United States, only Fox has an alternative view. The other channels speak with one voice. They are united on every issue, every time. They’re in almost perfect sync with the priorities of the Democratic Party.
Which is why they loathe half the Democratic presidential candidates and most fresh ideas articulated by Democrats.
Fox News stands apart. The opinion shows on this channel have another perspective. You might consider that valuable diversity, something different in a sea of sameness. The left does not think that. They would like Fox News shut down tomorrow. The other news channels agree. They would like that too. They are trying to do it now.
I wish.
It’s worth explaining how the process of banning ideas works, the means by which so many voices have already been silenced. The first step is defining political disagreement as a mortal threat to the country. Something that’s dangerous. That’s the job of a group called the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization whose name intentionally masks its role as an enforcer for the Democratic establishment.
There's the big reveal. The group that's "in charge of" America isn't the GOP or the Federalist Society or the Koch network -- it's the SPLC! The SPLC is America's secret government.
Groups or individuals who challenge the official story on virtually any subject find themselves designated as a “hate group” by the SPLC. This is a handy way to crush your political enemies. By definition, hate groups don’t have legitimate ideas or positions. They spew only hate. You don’t have to listen to them or debate their claims. You can ignore everything they say. Your only duty is to suppress them. That’s the beauty of the SPLC: Once they call the people you disagree with a “hate group,” you can immediately move to shut them up by force. That’s what they do.
The SPLC hasn't designated Fox a hate group, but whatever.

That’s where Media Matters comes in. Media Matters is a George Soros-funded lobbying organization...
George Soros! Drink!
... whose sole mission is to punish critics of the Democratic Party. Media Matters often uses propaganda from the Southern Poverty Law Center to bully corporations, news executives and tech companies into punishing people it doesn’t like. Not surprisingly, the media love Media Matters.
So the SPLC and (((Soros)))-controlled Media Matters tell all the news organizations what to write and they all just write exactly what they're told, and...
This is the face of state media.
Yes, there it is. Fox News is a 24/7 propaganda channel for the president of the United States, but what power does that guy have? Surely not as much as the Southern Poverty Law Center and (((Soros))-funded Media Matters!

This is the worldview of the right. We could someday have a full-on fascist dictator in America, one who was suspending all civil liberties and putting people in camps, and the dictator's supporters would still be claiming to be weak and embattled, insisting that the terrorized, shackled, literally disappeared opponents of the regime were the ones with real power.

Carlson will survive -- hell, he's not even a top news story anymore, what with the college scandal and the questions about that Boeing plane. The careers of Dan Rather and Brian Williams suffered far more than Carlson's will. Fox as a corporate entity has never been attacked the government the way CNN has. But Fox and Carlson claim to be the real victims -- and every rank-and-file conservative in America believes that's true.

Right-Wingers: Carlson Gets A Pass Since Media Matters Used... Research!

Media Matters has now released clips and transcripts of Tucker Carlson making racist remarks on a shock-jock radio show, a day after exposing Carlson's misogynistic and pro-pedophilia remarks on the same show. But according to conservatives, everything Carlson said should be ignored by the public -- not because the clips and quotes are fake (they aren't), and not because they're out of context (they aren't), but because they were discovered using (gasp!) research.

Here's Mike LaChance at William Jacobson's blog, Legal Insurrection:

These audio clips didn’t just fall out of the sky. The people at Media Matters went looking for them. They sat and combed through hours of audio looking for something to use to target Tucker and his Fox News show.

So these clips are fruits from a poison tree! They should be stricken from the record!

'She's vulnerable,' Fox News host says. 'She's like a wounded gazelle separated from the herd'
          Fox-anchors jagen adverteerders weg met uitspraken over vrouwen en moslims      Cache   Translate Page      

Niet iedere presentator of gast van de Amerikaanse zender Fox News is even genuanceerd. Dat weet iedereen: het is een van de redenen waarom de zender zo goed bekeken wordt. Maar twee presentatoren hebben het nu toch te bont gemaakt in de ogen van een handjevol adverteerders. Enkele bedrijven willen hun reclames niet meer rond de programma's van Tucker Carlson en Jeanine Pirro laten uitzenden.

Om met Carlson te beginnen: sinds een aantal weken kent een deel van Nederland hem door zijn ontspoorde interview met Rutger Bregman. De afgelopen dagen bracht Media Matters for America, een organisatie die op zijn zachtst gezegd geen fan is van Fox, audiofragmenten naar buiten waarin Carlson behoorlijk vrouwonvriendelijk overkomt.

Extreem primitief

In de fragmenten uit een radioshow die werd uitgezonden tussen 2006 en 2011 noemt hij presentatrice Alexis Stewart cunty, journalist Arianna Huffington "een varken" en Britney Spears en Paris Hilton "twee van de grootste witte hoeren in Amerika". Ook zegt Carlson dat vrouwen ervan houden "om stil te zijn en zo ongeveer te doen wat ze wordt opgedragen". Verder laat hij zich ontvallen dat vrouwen "extreem primitief zijn".

Maandag reageerde de presentator in zijn programma Tucker Carlson Tonight. "Het heeft weinig zin om uit te leggen dat het schertsend was bedoeld, dat mijn woorden ontdaan zijn van context, dat het het tegenovergestelde is van wat ik eigenlijk denk."

Kijk hieronder Carlsons hele reactie, waarin hij vooral de aanval kiest:

Carlson duidt het naar buiten brengen van de fragmenten als een poging om hem het zwijgen op te leggen. "Dit is een van weinige plekken in de VS waar onafhankelijke geluiden nog zijn toegestaan. Een paar uurtjes in een zee van tv-programma's. Maar voor links is het onacceptabel, zij willen totale conformiteit. Sinds onze eerste uitzending proberen ze ons het zwijgen op te leggen."

De presentator maakt in de zeven minuten durende video geen excuses voor zijn opmerkingen over vrouwen. "En dat hoeft hij ook niet", zegt Amerikadeskundige Kirsten Verdel. "Want zijn fans blijven hem toch wel steunen. Zo werkt dat tegenwoordig: als je achterban vindt dat je gelijk hebt, dan is het goed. Het doet er niet toe of je echt gelijk hebt."

Fox News heeft niet gereageerd op de ophef rond Carlson, maar wel op die rond zijn collega Jeanine Pirro. Oud-rechter Pirro presenteert het programma Justice with Judge Jeanine. Daarin behandelt ze allerlei juridische zaken.

Afgelopen weekend besprak ze het Democratische congreslid Ilhan Omar. En hoewel ze het in een vraag formuleerde, kreeg Pirro veel kritiek over haar opmerking naar aanleiding van de hoofddoek die Omar draagt.

"Denk er eens over na: Omar draagt een hijab", begon Judge Jeanine. "Is haar naleving van deze islamitische doctrine een aanwijzing voor haar naleving van de sharia, die in tegenspraak is met de Amerikaanse grondwet?"

Een van de critici was een collega, Hufsa Kamal. Zij twitterde: "Kan je stoppen met het verspreiden van het onware verhaal dat moslims Amerika haten en dat vrouwen die een hijab dragen niet Amerikaans genoeg zijn? Er werken moslims bij jouw eigen zender, onder wie ik."

De oud-rechter reageerde een dag na haar uitzending op de ophef: "Mijn bedoeling was om een discussie te starten. Het spreekt voor zich dat het niet betekent dat je de grondwet niet steunt als je moslim bent." Fox News veroordeelde de woorden van Pirro. "Ze vertegenwoordigen niet de woorden van de zender en we hebben de kwestie met haar besproken."

Maar de zender neemt geen maatregelen, noch tegen Pirro, noch tegen Carlson. Dat verbaast Amerikanist Kirsten Verdel niet. "Of Fox hiervan schrikt, dat ligt er alleen aan hoeveel adverteerders er stoppen. Uiteindelijk gaat het allemaal om geld."

Ze herinnert zich een zaak die twee jaar geleden speelde bij de nieuwszender. Fox-presentator Bill O'Reilly werd toen ontslagen nadat een aantal adverteerders was afgehaakt vanwege onthullingen over seksuele intimidatie.

"Bij de twee zaken die nu spelen, worden gewoon kosten-batenanalyses gemaakt", denkt Verdel. "Hoeveel adverteerders lopen er weg? Kunnen we rechtszaken verwachten? Niet al te veel? Ok, dan gaan we gewoon zo door."

Tucker Carlson speaks onstage during Politicon 2018 at Los Angeles Convention Center on October 21, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

Tucker Carlson is facing even more criticism for lewd and demeaning comments that he made about the 2007 Miss Teen USA contestant from South Carolina. The embattled Fox News host called Caitlin Upton stupid and suggesting that she might be vulnerable enough for sexual advances, according to USA Today.

“She’s like, she’s vulnerable,” Carlson said. “She’s like a wounded gazelle, separated from the herd.”

The then-38-year-old then said that host Mario Lopez should attempt to have sex with the then-17-year-old.

“She’d probably be a pretty good wife,” said Carlson. “If you had a wife that dumb, would it be good or bad?”

“I was thinking about tapping my foot next to her stall,” he ended.

Upton spoke in 2015 about how difficult the pageant was for her and revealed that she considered committing suicide after the ridicule aimed at her performance damaged her mental health.

Carlson, among other things, called Martha Stewart’s daughter a “c***,” joked about fourteen-year-old girls sexually experimenting, and defended rape facilitator Warren Jeffs. It’s not good material.
