My meanderings about politics, 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 can hear all the naysayers already telling me is just one person on Fox News. It’s how a dam brakes, first there’s a crack and then a small Trickle and then it breaks open. I have watched this movie once before and it was called Nixon in Watergate. I heard all the pundits tell me that the Republican Party would never turn against him. Until they turned against him. And this Republican party will turn against this President once they get a decided loss in the midterms.
So yes, it’s only one Fox News host who has the gumption to speak out the truth but even if 1/10 of that audience believes it it’s a beginning and eventually the dam will break.
After all of the news about what Michael Cohen has done for his other two clients I have to wonder what Sean Hannity has had to pay 4 Michael Kong to fix. Michael Cohen is a fixer and not an attorney in the way that you and I think of an attorney. It’s more like an attorney in The Godfather. He threatens people and he does underhanded deals that hide information from the public. Case in point all of the non-disclosure agreements with people who have had relationships with the current occupant of the White House. Or the RNC Finance chair who had to have an abortion with a young lady he had sexual relations with. This is the classic Family Values party that the Republicans have been counting all these years. Affairs with pornstars and Playboy bunnies and abortions left and right.
Sean Hannity is not a reporter. Sean Hannity is a pundit who’s relationship with the truth what’s only when it’s convenient for him. But Fox News sells him as a reporter and let’s be honest here he is in the back pocket of the present occupant of the White House and as such should not be making news programming.
What has Sean Hannity paid Michael corn to hide? Affairs with Playboy bunnies or Pawn Stars? Abortions? This is the family values Republican Party of 2018 and they should be ashamed of themselves.
The problem with fake news is if you listen to it all the time you start believing it. If you listen to the pablum and hatred that is spewed on Fox all the time you start believing it. Sheriff Steve Israel riled up the right because he said that military assault weapons should not be in the hands of anyone in this country other than the military. He said that he’s a hunter but he doesn’t understand the need for a military assault weapon if you’re truly a hunter. That got the the GOP right-wingers very upset. So, they did what they do best, create fake news. They posted videos of a woman claiming to have been raped by Steve Israel and then forced to have an abortion. She was an actress she didn’t know what she was talking about and apologizes. but you know that Fox News is never going to say anything about this because it doesn’t fit their opinion. And the problem is that news should not be opinionated it should be facts and that seems to have escaped for those who watch Fox News. It’s funny the people who scream fake news the most are the ones who create it. It’s an old adage that the thief has the most locks on his home.
Well, the irony is that Fox News is truly fake news.
I believe this may be the second time I have ever reposted something from Fox News but in this case I actually agree with them. The behind the scenes of who was controlling this Commander in Chief forum is fascinating. It turns out that one of NBC’s Chiefs was in Matt Lauer’s ear the whole time telling him what to do. He’s the one who told him to ask all the questions about the emails. He’s also the one who rushed him through questions at the end that Hillary wanted to answer. If Fox News sees bias so do I. I realize that Fox News is attacking another Network and so I have to take everything they say with a grain of salt. But this is Fox News everything they say should be taken with a handful of salt. For all of us who watched it it was painfully obvious that Matt Lauer was not ready for primetime.
As much as I don’t like Mike Pence’s ideas I have to say that he has not allowed himself to be Donald Trump’s Whipping Boy. This is another example of Trump hyperbole. Just to put things into perspective, President Obama, the first African American president, got his best 93% of the African-American vote. So you’re going to tell me that this orange hair orangatang is going to do better than President Obama. Sure.
The author of this piece, Kurt Eichenwald, has epilepsy and suffers from seizures. This is why he is so angry about these ridiculous claims coming from the Trump campaign regarding Hillary’s health. Newsweek let him use language in the magazine that they would not normally allow because of how angry he was at Sean Hannity. I invite you to click on the link below and read his article.
He appeared on what is becoming my favorite Sunday Morning Show AM Joy on MSNBC.
This would have never happened under Roger Ailes. But my question would have been why not? Well, Roger Ailes ran Fox like a fiefdom and treated his employees terribly and they were scared for their jobs at all times. It’s refreshing to see this happening. Let’s not forget that Don Lemon is openly gay another factoid to be put into this equation. Maybe there is hope 4 a more balanced view of politics from the news media. I am a glass-is-half-full person so please understand I’m optimistic about the future at all times. If not after everything that’s happened to me in the last 4 years I would not be around. My psychologist say I have great coping skills and I think the greatest of my coping skills is my optimism. Good for Megyn Kelly and good for Don Lemon 4 reaching out and asking for them to come to the CNN Grill. I’m not watching CNN anymore because they hired Corey Lewandowski. When I see something even if it’s something from an organization I’m not fond of that is good, I want to point it out.
The talk of unification behind Trump from the Republican party is nothing but a smoke screen. The rift between the two is not going to be mended even by November. This article clearly state that Trump was not even talked about very much other than in terms of having to defeat Hillary. Most of the talk was about trying to get their Senator re-elected. He’s got a big task ahead of him with Russ Feingold as his Challenger. This Chinese torture like drip-drip-drip of information coming out about Donald Trump is going to start caving in his foundation. People want a steady hand at the helm of the United States and not someone who lies for his own best interest. I certainly am not saying that Hillary has a cakewalk, well to the contrary. But a United front will defeat this neo-fascist. AVB http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/05/14/donald-who-wisconsin-republicans-largely-avoid-trump.html
I’m watching the whip rolling Anderson Cooper Fox News says that Donald Trump will not rule out a 3rd party run. If he does run as a third-party or write-in candidate it would be devastating to the Republican party. If he is the nominee, it would be devastating to the Republican Party. Ted Cruz is the nominee it would be devastating to the Republican Party. If someone not running is a nominee it would be devastating to the Republican Party. And John Kasich who seems to be riding high in the National polls has yet to have had his terrible stewardship of Ohio brought to the Forefront. His conduct against women’s rights and black lives is abysmal. AVB http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3416599/posts

CNN, Fox and MSNBC are having amazing rating numbers because of this 2016 presidential election. So it is in their best interest to prop a candidate up and then knock them down. News organizations now favor ratings over content and quite frankly the facts. Walter Cronkite did not have to worry about the ratings of his broadcasts. To boost ratings Secretary Clinton she is the one that gets knocked down more often because she is ahead in the polls and the front-runner. In New York she’s leaving Bernie Sanders by double-digits but the article makes it seem as if she’s losing. Media bias, absolutely.
