Fox News has indefinitely removed contributor Andrew Napolitano from its programming, following an unsubstantiated claim he made on air last week and that was refuted by U.S. intelligence officials, according to a report. The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Napolitano has not made any appearances on Fox since last Thursday. Citing an anonymous source, the paper said Napolitano "is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future." The Washington Examiner has asked a Fox spokesperson for confirmation of the report. Napolitano last week tried to bolster President Trump´s own previous and unfounded claim
I moved two years ago and don´t have cable anymore. At first I missed Fox News because I would have it on as noise during the day when there is absolutely nothing to watch on TV. So glad it is gone. That network has gone to crap. Never liked Ted Baxter (Bill O) and Shep is just sickening. Don´t know how they keep their audience.
He has a choice. If he had sources (and hearing it at the time, live on Fox Business News with Stuart Varney, I couldn’t imagine he didn’t have sources whether he wanted to reveal them or not), he could exonerate himself...
Unsubstantiated claim? That´s a good one. First of all, all Napolitano did was relay what he was told to him by others. Since when does that have to be substantiated? Is he supposed to play a tape of those conversations? Plus, he´s not a REPORTER who is supposed to substantiate their claims but never do, just put their crap out there. Think CBS, NBC, ABC, PMSNBC, CNBC, PBS.

Murdoch spawn are libs. Saw Lachlan one night in London- he was drunk and obnoxious in a small, elegant bar. The barman said - it happened frequently. Maybe it is time to cut cable- sick of liars. Nedra Tanden and Emanuel on Sunday Mornin were disgusting. Nothing "fair and balanced" when they talk over others and spout lies. Bring back Judge Nap!
Something very sinister going on here. The movement to take down Trump has reached a fever pitch. Fox news is allowing Shepard Smith to continue his ranting and raving hate Trump pitch while they dismiss Napolitano who appears to be one of the most honest, smart legal voices at Fox. The FBI and other intelligence agencies are getting full coverage on Fox News as they appear before Congress with their obvious lies about their covert activities pertaining to bringing Trump down.
Wake up America......the movement is proceeding full speed ahead in bring down our President and they must be stopped !!
FOX lets Judge Napolitano go and keep Shep Smith and that Emmanual moron. Going out of their way to lose viewers. To bad there isn´t another "fair and balanced" station for all of the other on air people to jump ship and I´d be willing to bet they would if they didn´t need the job. Would love to be a fly on the wall down there.
Fox News has been devoid of "news" for some time. The other outlets are guilty of covering only "news" that fits their playbook, but at least they cover something. When was the last time Fox had a reporter on the ground reporting anything? Too vapid for my tastes since the election.
Harf, Rivera, Manuel,Smith and Williams, plus Rove throwing constant shade on the Donald, O´Reilly relentlessly telling our guy what he should do, andWallace doing his best to put the knife in on Sunday, it´s no wonder Trump turns to tweeting. The Murdock boys and their wives are at work.
Have a feeling they wanted to get rid of the Judge and this gave them the reason.
It looks like Fox got the same kind of illness that beset Democrats when they voted for Obamacare, etc and basically fell on their swords, got subsequently voted out next election because of their actions. Well if they want to walk the plank, head on out and we´ll even push. Talk about indoctrination and headed for ruin! All those Fox personalities mentioned above are tanking the channel and it looks like they are racing for the bottom. The roll down hill all probably started about the time Fox caved to George Soros in getting rid of Glenn Beck. Beck said in one broadcast Soros spent one million dollars to kill his 170 show and get him ousted.
I quit Fox a long time ago. But when my wife told me about Tucker Carlson, if I can remember when he is on I watch him. He´s a master at taking down dims.
Also, there is a fairly new network on cable. That is One America News Network, it your cable carries it. If not, it has a web site. And another web site, (I don´t know if it has a broadcast network but it´s available on the net) is AXIOS. Both of these are conservative new outfits.
Obama and his cadre of liars,in Government and the MSM, spouted falsehoods throughout his Presidency and not a peep was made by anyone. save Fox News. Now Fox is being stupid at the least in suspending the Good Judge. Chances are Obama and his henchmen and the British Secret Service did what Andrew Napolitano said, but they covered their tracts well!?
It be great if evidence surfaced to vindicate President Trump and the Good Judge soon?
The man who told Napolitano the information confirmed he was the person on Brian Stalter´s show. I don´t think Stalter is smart enough to have figured it out, but it´s posted on Twitter.
Any way, this is a good way to keep Napolitano from saying anything more. I´m guessing he is going to be called in to testify as a witness, so best not to get him to say anything more that could possibly conflict or reveal who the dirty people are.
I think this was more of a protection plan for the Judge than anything else.

#26 set up a twitter account. Sheer volume of tweets work. Tweet Bill Shine and Neil Cavuto. Neil is a VPtook me a bit to get the hang of it but I did.
I´ve decided Shep Smith´s bias is to offset Hannity´s bias. I agree with Hannity but deplore his ego driven style. I disagree with Shep but admittedly admire his equally ego driven style. Except for his Katrina meltdown, IMO, no one anchors a natural disaster as well as Shep. Hannity couldn´t come close. We would have to hear how he once washed dishes, roofed houses or hurt his shoulder in the midst of someone´s personal loss. I am certain being a son if the south drove She´s Katrina meltdown.
Yet FNC continues to air contributors who push unsubstantiated memes more consistent with Establishment thought. (Not to mention that the good judge´s claims are embarrassing to the Establishment intelligence community.) Should anyone be surprised? What News Corp. chooses to air on broadcast FNS should be the "tell" - not much different from what you will see on the other broadcast alphabets. Why are Chris Wallace and Shep Smith News Corp´s faces to the general public? FNC has just become a place to "park" those with a more conservative bent, and use their numbers to build up the company. Now is is time for News Corp. to "move on".
It is time for us to "move on", too. Fortunately, there are other outlets for our news, and the number is increasing.

I hasten to say that I don´t think Fox gives a damn. Early this morning it channel flipped and there was the pontificating, purer than pure, nasty, truly ugly AB Stoddard spewing her crap while attempting to look as though she´s just bodily ascended into the heavenly stratosphere. She´s a pig which means they are booking her continually if only to annoy people like me.
Andrew Napolitano is one reason I´ve continued with some Fox—and the whiz kids have now killed him too. Keep it up, Fox.I´m now seeing bumper stickers that say; Turn off FOX. You won´t miss it. I have all but tuned out—just a limited number of programs and so far I don´t miss anything.

I like the judge too! Watch Fox & Friends, Hannity, O´Reilly sometimes & Tucker now that "Blondie" is gone. Lou Dobbs & Varney are also on my schedule along with "old time" movies on many channels. Sure miss "old America" but also realize this is Divine Design - hope Trump can fulfill his mission.
Between listening to Rush and reading Lucianne & Drudge, I have a pretty good handle on things. After seeing that Neera Tanden witch on Fox News Sunday, along with Rahm Emmanuel´s brother, and Chris Wallace, I just turned it off. Garbage. Why on earth would they pay to have than Tanden thing on there? Not only wrong, but extremely obnoxious.
Ivanka Trump announced on Wednesday her plans to take on an official role in the White House and serve formally as an unpaid assistant to the president. The move makes her a federal employee. After it was revealed last week that she was set to receive a White House office and other perks without becoming a federal employee, many expressed concerns that the arrangement allowed her to act as a de facto official without being bound by the ethics laws applied to formal employees. Trump´s decision on Wednesday, she said in a statement, came in direct response to those questions. "I
Iconic game show host Chuck Woolery says he knows how to pass a health care bill that has unanimous support from both Democrats and Republicans in Congress. The former host of such hit television shows as “Love Connection,” “The Dating Game” and “Wheel of Fortune” took to Twitter Thursday to take some pot shots at politicians in Congress who generously vote to line their own pockets - including a suggestion for how to gain bipartisan support for a health care bill: (Tweet) Woolery also said that, if Congress likes holding hearings so much, they ought to hold them to look into
Sen. John McCain went nuclear against North Korea, in a manner of speaking. The Arizona Republican’s verbal put-down of dictator Kim Jong Un earlier this month – “this crazy fat kid” – was met with a stiff, angry response from the communist regime, which warned McCain of dire consequences to follow. “As such guys as John McCain and [Sen.] Ted Cruz made a provocation tantamount to declaration of war against the [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea], the DPRK will take steps to counter it,” said an official DPRK statement, published by the Korean Central News Agency. “They will have to
One hundred years ago, on April 6, 1917, the United States entered World War I. The ongoing conflict ended just 19 months later with an Allied victory. The United States did not win the war alone, given the far earlier and greater sacrifices of Great Britain, France, Italy and czarist Russia. But America´s late arrival, with some 2 million doughboys who landed in France less than three years after the start of the war, saved the teetering Allied cause. By late 1917, Germany had knocked Russia out of the war and seemed likely to swarm the sole Western front and
McDonald’s announced Thursday it will switch to fresh beef Quarter Pounder paddies instead of using frozen meat at most restaurants by the middle of next year. McDonald’s, the nation’s largest fast-food chain, is following the practice of its rivals — including Wendy’s and In-N-Out — to use fresh beef for its one of its signature menu items. The company said in an announcement that its burgers were already 100 percent beef with no filler. “We’ve been serving the burger we serve since 1973, and now we’re changing it,” McDonald’s U.S. president Chris Kempczinski told Fortune. “That is big.” The company said
The University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada, is hosting a “masculinity confession booth” this week, in which male students are asked to confess sins that may have been inspired by the Western world’s emphasis on “hypermasculinity.” Students at the University of Regina had the opportunity this week to confess their “hypermasculinity sins” at a confessional booth on campus. “We have all reinforced hypermasculinity one way or another regardless of our gender,” organizers claim. “Come and share your sins so we can begin to discuss how to identify and change our ways!” The initiative was started by the non-profit group, Man
President Donald Trump will put his negotiating and diplomatic skills to the test when he hosts China´s President Xi Jinping for a two-day summit at Mar-a-Lago, an event the White House officially announced Thursday. The high-profile summit will bring Trump face to face with a nation he frequently railed against during the campaign for ripping off the U.S. – although he repeatedly added that China´s leaders were ´smart´ by doing what was in their interest. Both men´s wives will attend, adding to the global interest that will follow the event. Melania Trump took a more public role at the White
WASHINGTON — Vice President Pence cast a tie-breaking Senate vote Thursday to advance legislation that would allow states to withhold federal funds from Planned Parenthood and other health care providers that perform abortions. The Senate, after a procedural vote, will now proceed to a measure that would dismiss an Obama-era rule banning states from denying federal funds to such organizations. Pence´s vote was needed for the Senate to agree to bring the resolution to the floor. Republicans Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska broke with their party, voting against the measure. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., called the
A national security expert warned the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence that Russia´s disinformation campaign in 2016 sought to "crumble democracies from the inside out" by "winning the second cold war through the force of politics, as opposed to the politics of force." Clint Watts, a senior fellow with the Foreign Policy Research Institute Program on National Security, described how he and his colleagues first noticed in 2014 a petition on theWhiteHouse.gov website called, "Alaska back to Russia." Further investigation into that petition showed that most of the 39,000 signatures on the petition were the work of "bots," which were
The victims of a deadly car accident involving a pickup truck and a minibus full of elderly churchgoers have been identified. Authorities say 20-year-old Jack Young was the driver who veered into oncoming traffic and collided head on with a minibus carrying 14 back from a three-day choir retreat. The driver of the bus, 67-year-old Murray Barrett, and 11 of his passengers were killed at the scene. Another died after being taken from the hospital. Scroll down for video (Photos) Passenger Rose Marry Harris, 64, and the driver of the pickup truck, 20-year-old Jack Young, survived and are in stable
Thursday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted out a statement going after the House Freedom Caucus, saying that “We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!” “The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don’t get on the team, & fast,” President Donald Trump tweeted. “We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!” (Tweet) President Trump’s tweets come after the House Freedom Caucus and Democrats taken together assembled enough opposition that House GOP leadership pulled a controversial Obamacare reform bill without a vote last Friday. It was reportedly determined that the House GOP did not have support from
Texas Governor, Greg Abbott called into the Steve Malzberg show to discuss sanctuary cities plaguing certain counties in his great state. He said he would sign legislation that could put Sheriffs of sanctuary cities in jail. Here we go, folks! Don’t mess with Texas! (Photos) Steve Malzberg: “I know you brought up the possibility of jailing such Sheriffs recently.” Greg Abbott: “We have. It’s a two-step process. One, as Governor I could unilaterally use my office to take funds away from Travis County that had been previously granted to them under Governor’s grants for criminal justice reasons and we have defunded
More than 108,000 people have signed a petition urging First Lady Melania Trump to move to the White House or pay for security costs at Trump Tower herself. The Change.org petition was started after a senior White House aide indicated the president’s wife and son, Barron, will remain in New York until the school year ends. It’ll be delivered to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren if at least 150,000 people sign. (Snip) Comments beneath the Change.org petition highlighted the signers’ dissatisfaction over the first family’s use of taxpayer funds. “Living in the White House is what you
He maintains a dignified silence when nudged for his view of Donald Trump. But President George W. Bush apparently dropped his diplomacy at the billionaire´s inauguration. New York Magazine reports that after The Donald finished his speech, which was peppered with surprises including ´American carnage´, Bush made no effort to hide what he thought of it. ´That was some weird s***,´ he said, according to three separate sources who heard him. The uninhibited reaction is a far cry from the reluctance Bush showed to tear in to the president earlier this year during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. He dodged the comedian´s repeated attempts to
A spirited Hillary Clinton took on the Trump administration Tuesday in one of her first public speeches since she lost the presidential election, criticizing Donald Trump and his spokesman Sean Spicer on everything from health care to their treatment of women. Cracking jokes about her November defeat and her months out of the limelight since, Clinton spoke to thousands of businesswomen in San Francisco, joking there was no place she´d rather be, ´other than the White House.´ Without mentioning President Donald Trump by name, Clinton faulted the Republican presidential administration repeatedly, including calling its representation of women in top jobs
Jeb Bush said while he believes President Trump has made some good decisions since taking office, the former Florida governor thinks Trump´s statements on Twitter are a huge distraction. "He hasn´t shifted to being president in the way that people are used to, and I think that´s the problem," Bush said in an interview with CBS Miami, taped before the House pulled a bill to repeal Obamacare. Trump´s former rival for the Republican nomination was clear that some of Trump´s statements, such as claiming President Barack Obama wiretapped him, are not productive.
Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who made national headlines in 2015 after she pretended to be black, is back in the spotlight thanks to a new memoir titled In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World. In the book, which will be released on March 28, the former Washington NAACP leader doesn’t walk back on her claims that she self-identifies as a black woman, saying that living her life as a black person made her life “infinitely better,” although it did make her feel more “distant and isolated” from white people as she started to embrace
Sen. John McCain called on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes to explain his decision to brief President Donald Trump on possible “unmasking” of Trump transition officials, suggesting that Nunes has undermined the credibility of the panel by not first communicating with fellow committee members. “I think there needs to be a lot of explaining to do,” McCain said Tuesday on "CBS This Morning." “I’ve been around for quite a while, and I’ve never heard of any such thing. Obviously, on a committee like an intelligence committee, you’ve got to have bipartisanship; otherwise, the committee loses credibility. And there’s so
Missouri State University sponsored an hour-long event last week dedicated to the various ways fringe feminist activists can misspell the word “woman.” The event, entitled “Womyn, Wymen,” was held in the taxpayer-funded school’s Multicultural Resource Center Annex, reports The Standard, Missouri State’s newspaper. Yvania Garcia-Pusateri, the executive director of Missouri State’s five-employee Multicultural Programs staff, led the event. Garcia-Pusateri kicked off by asking attendees — all of them female — to announce the gender pronouns they prefer. “We introduce our gender pronouns as a way to normalize gender identity,” she explained, according to The Standard. “It’s not always the traditional
This is stunningly interesting and hopefully will be picked up by MSM and congressional investigators. Sometimes when a person is deep inside an echo-chamber of like-minded ideologues, they might not realize what they’re saying is rather revealing to those on the outside. That’s the set up for former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas (Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense) appearing on MSNBC and admitting first hand knowledge the Obama administration spied on candidate and president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team to gather “intelligence” for political use.
Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch said he would be open to step aside and not run for re-election in 2018 if a candidate like Mitt Romney were to run for his position in his stead. In an interview with National Journal, the Republican senator who has been in office since 1976 said he "might very well consider" not campaigning for another term if an "outstanding person" were to run for his position. (Snip) In February, Romney declined to rule out a run for a Senate seat in the future. "I don´t have any predictions on what I might do. I´m not going

Associate professor in the history and politics department at Drexel University George Ciccariello-Maher ignited a Twitter firestorm on Sunday when he tweeted that he was trying not to "vomit or yell" when he witnessed a fellow passenger aboard his flight give up a first class seat to a uniformed soldier.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” Senator Lindsey Graham criticized House Intelligence Committee Chairman Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) for conducting “sort of an Inspector Clouseau investigation here,” and putting “his objectivity in question, at the very least.” Graham said that he thinks Nunes “put his objectivity in question, at the very least.” He added that Nunes should share the information he was given that suggested improper conduct regarding the Trump transition team with others on the committee, and if he doesn’t do that, “then I think he’s lost his ability to lead.” Graham also criticized Democrats on the committee for
