My meanderings about politics, LGBTQ COMMUNITY, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
I am not a fan of Chuck Todd on Meet the Press. He likes to hear his own voice and he’s a crybaby. His terrible performance during the Democratic debate in June is indicative of everything I’m saying. But I remember one Sunday when he lamented the fact that he could not ask probing questions has he feared not being able to book guests on the show if they thought he was going to be too difficult with them. And he took all of the other talk shows with them. All the other talk shows except for the one hosted by Chris Wallace. Chris Wallace has niver taken a backseat to a guest unwilling to answer questions. He probes and probes and always at the end of the day makes himself look like a fair person then someone that just sits there and plays that.
So week after week we get headlines from Chris Wallace’s show weather it been with one of the members of the current administration or people that come on and show 2 give the propaganda of the current occupant of the White House. He does not let them and asks question after question until they relent.
Perhaps the other talk show hosts should consider taking a book out of his page.
And while you’re at it MSNBC and NBC, perhaps you can find a replacement for Chuck Todd. He’d be great on today, a show I never watch.
If there’s one thing the current occupant of the White House response to is poll numbers. Fox News polls have always been favorable towards him and this must be quite a shock. You couple that with the fact that the stock market fell almost 900 points today, the stories about Mitch McConnell and Russia, the downright falling apart of our foreign policy across the world and you can see a president that’s now in a corner. usually he responds to this by making some Grand gesture which he never follows through with. My prediction is that he’s going to say that he is going to be the one to finally get some sort of law on the books to end gun violence but in the end he will say the Democrats did not agree to some odd thing that he had asked for and pulls away from the agreement.
This is been a week where you have seen him show signs of wear and tear. After not wanting to criticize the Chinese government for its atrocities on the people of Hong Kong today he said that they need to be humane to the people of Hong Kong. he picked the new fed chairman, and picked him, and today he attacked it mercilessly for not lowering interest rates. Does this man understand that interest rates are at an all-time low for an economy of this magnitude and that if it goes south the economy can only be boosted by interest rate adjustments down but if it’s at zero where do we go ? Give more money away from our Treasury?
There’s 550 days before the election so much can happen I just hope that he continues on his path of self-destruction because that’s the only way we’re going to get him out of the White House.
Slowly but surely cracks are appearing in the coverage of the current occupant of the White House on Fox news. Fox news also known as Trump TV has always been an important tool for the current occupant of the White House. But brave souls likeChris Wallace and judge Napolitano have started what seems like a prickle but could eventually turn into a flood.
It’s easy to dismiss Fox news, it’s not easy to dismiss the ratings it gets. 8 dwarfs its competition like CNN and MSNBC so it is important that they start being truth-tellers to this Administration.
Trump went in front of the cameras and of course lied through his teeth again saying that he never said that there were good people on both sides and that this had been litigated already in the media. falsehood after false it is what comes out of this man’s mouth and you know what whenever he’s on any channel or either change a Channel or mute because I cannot even stand listening to his voice for 2 seconds.
On a side note, I completely disagree with the Democratic party not giving Fox news a debate. That’s absolutely asinine. 21% of Fox news viewers are Democrats and that’s kind of a slap in the face to them but beyond that should not the Democratic party look to bring in some of those who are disenchanted with the current occupant of the White House? I say yes!
Let’s hope that the truth will start ringing more often from Fox news and until then don’t be fooled, the truth is out there.
Wow, the Network that has made its claim to fame over the moniker fake news actually had fake news on its own broadcast just like it does every day. This one was so blatant that they had to come out and say “we’re sorry”. In actuality the graphic that showed Trump’s approval rating at 55% was Trump’s disapproval rating. His actual approval rating is steady at 43% even though Attorney General Barr put out a false summary vindicating Trump. The Mueller team was quick and explaining that they’d never vindicated Trump or said that he was not guilty of anything and yet this Roy Cohn Attorney General was lying through his teeth to the American people.
sure we elected Trump not by a majority of the votes but through a stupid system called The electoral college. The American people may have made that mistake but they see what’s happening and we’ll vote this man out of office unless the Republicans cheat like they always do
Our country is slowly becoming less and less democratic. That’s democratic with a small d.
With the electoral college now negating votes so that the majority no longer can elect a president especially if he’s or she is a Democrat. the last two Republican presidents were not elected by a majority of the American people would rather by the electoral college.
So what are we to do? Vote with our dollars. It’s the only power we have left and it’s limited. There are some brands that are almost impossible to get around but they seem to be the ones who jumped ship from Tucker Carlson early on.
I say boycott. I remember the first time that’s an organized boycott in the United States worked in my memory. it was the grape boycott organized by Cesar Chavez. We stopped buying grapes and it forced grape producers to start paying not a living wage but at least a better wage than they had been.
So I hope that every advertiser that is not a Noah Museum or some erectile dysfunction drug pulls their advertising from Tucker Carlson and from all of the fox programming that promotes hate and distrust of others.

White House press secretaries I’ve had it hard in the Trump Administration. How could we forget Sean Spicer and the amount of lies that he’s feud off of the podium on his very first press briefing. And of course although he was not press secretary, Anthony scaramucci who was the press director for the White House for about 28 days also had it hard. And now we come to who I feel the least amount of empathy for, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I believe that she relishes debasing the press wow lying to the American people. Mike Wallace would be very happy with his son right now. He put it right on the line of the fact that this wall is not going to stop terrorists. this wall will do nothing but empty out the coffers of the American government as for what? Yes, there is a President who is about to be indicted, impeached or hopefully he and his vice president will resign.
I remember the days I liked Tucker Carlson. Those were the days when he was a real reporter and not a mouthpiece for Trump TV.
These are 16 companies we should boycott and at all costs avoid. Reach out to their Twitter accounts and tell him how you feel. Tell them that you have been a customer in the past and give an example of the products you bought from them. Tell them what you’re going to do now that you know their feelings about immigrants.
Even the Willie Horton ad was never pulled off the air. And if something that is in favor of trump is pulled off the air by Fox, you know it was bad. The divider in Chief loses another one of his battles. We need to make sure he doesn’t win the war. It’s amazing that we have a president who actually wants us to hate each other and that’s what he is. When he demonizes Democrats as the other, does he not realize that more than half the country Falls underneath that label?
Divide and conquer is how enemies look hat the countries they plan to invade. But we have a President Who is hell-bent on dividing this country but for what purpose? Perhaps at the urging of his friend in the Kremlin or just because he’s trying to deflect from the crap that’s going on in his White House and Trump org.
After watching Rachel Maddow today where she showed the evolution of the National Enquire’s covers over the course of the presidential campaign 1 can understand stop lying to the American people in order to retain or grab power seems to be a Hallmark of Trump and Company. Every grocery checkout in the country there was an article on the weekend prior to the election in 2016 was a headline that said that Hillary Clinton was a racist and used the n-word. I have heard of projection but this is projection on steroids.
This man will use any means possible to get his way including hurting a family that is suffering from a devastating loss. My mom and dad lost the daughter and they never recovered and I cannot believe that the president of the United States is using this as a way of promoting himself, his agenda and distracting from what’s going on.
Fox News had its head in the sand when the guilty verdicts for Paul manafort and the guilty plea by Michael Cohen were being announced. Michael Cohen got immunity on one count and implicates a candidate, an unnamed candidate in election fraud. I wonder who that candidate could be?
CNN and MSNBC or covering the story in full, while Fox News worth attacking illegal immigrants.
Fact checkers did a study on the three networks and found that Fox News lied or gave misinformation 35% of the time. MSNBC that the same 23% of the time and CNN 20% of the time. Fox News should just drop the word news and call itself what it is Fox Propaganda.
