When will Republicans in Congress
step up and start restraining Trump?

Fox News, by Juan Williams

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/5/2017 1:51:57 PM

In advance of Michael Flynn’s guilty plea last week, President Trump started acting out. He retweeted a fake and vulgar message about Muslims. He sabotaged a meeting with Democrats on a budget deal and then spread word that shutting down the government might help him politically. (Snip) Thirty of the 44 heading for the door are Republicans. Most of them are good-government Republicans like Reps. Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen of Florida. They deserve thanks for years of good public service. But at the critical moment when the nation is dealing with an out-of-control Republican in the White

Comments:
Here we have more brilliant commentary from the always astute Juan Williams. NOT. He absolutely drives me insane. He never says anything that is meaningful that isn´t Democrat talking points. He wouldn´t give Trump credit for anything even if the unemployment rate was one percent and the economy was soaring. It´s laughable that he calls RINOs like Charlie Dent and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen good Republicans. What a joke that is.

FTA: "Where were the unequivocal denunciations of false and racist charges that President Obama was not born in the U.S.? Where was the rebuke of the man who used that conspiracy theory as a springboard to the presidency, Donald Trump?"

FTA: "Where were the Republican congressional leaders when the country needed them to stand up to and shout down the likes of Bachmann and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) when they caused a pointless government shutdown that tarnished the nation’s credit rating?"

Why was it racist to question where Obama was born? To this day I still question his background that is shrouded in secrecy.  Williams sees everything as racism. And for him to attack Bachman and Cruz for a government shutdown that was caused by DEMOCRATS is another one of the lies he loves to cite.  I´m sick of him and the equally worthless, vile Geraldo. I wish FNC would get rid of both of them. And while they are at it get rid of Marie Harf and the horrific Mary Anne Marsh. She drips with hatred.

Juan was fired from NPR for his behavior. Now it is time for him to be fired from Fox News for his stupidity and ultra-biased assertions.

Juan hasn´t been right about anything since Superman died. And now, he´s worried. He cannot understand why Republican senators won´t "rein in Trump". Perhaps someone should explain to this "expert" that the senators are acutely aware of the popularity of those senators who support the ELECTED president of the country.

Never, Juan. In fact, a whole lot of us are pushing Congress to get more on board with Trump´s agenda. IF Dems want to get on board, fine, otherwise, sit down and shut up.

Get all illegals out, regardless of their age when they started stealing from this country.
No more Muslims. No more refugees. We have way, way too many foreigners in our country without any understanding or caring about our Constitution, or any intent to become Americans, to join our culture, our way of life.

Say what? In my book, the Republican establishment types in Congress have done an outstanding job of restraining Trump and his agenda, even to the point that a "slam dunk" GOP election in 2018 is now in doubt.

As my high school history teacher said back in the 1970s, never underestimate the stupidity of the national Republican party. Wisdom for the ages. Rest in Peace, Mr. Shriver!

When is FOX going to restrain HIM from being obnoxious, always interrupting, making childish noises and comments while others are speaking,over-yelling and grunting...and simply talking like an loony democrat/socialist? He´s on the air way too much with nothing new to spew but blah-blah-blah. Maybe he should act like Jerry Rivers and stay off the air...maybe go back to NPR, they have a couple of positions that vacated whose shoes he could fill real nicely!

Some say Fox has Juan too many. He does seem to get more face time than anyone else. It can´t be easy being him. "The Five" is really more like "The Four" and "The Juan."

"The Five," as well as most other FNC talk shows, is at least two people talking (more like shouting and interrupting each other) simultaneously.

Remember "One At A Time?" Whatever Happened To It?

Reply #39, my take on it was that since the roster and photo was of six people, two of them must have been considered "point 5´s".

Solving the equation from that angle, the solution seemed quite simple.

My vision of it had "Yawn" sitting on Beckel´s lap (vice-versa might have been awkward), but odd as that seems, since Beckel left, Yawn hasn´t spoken an original thought.

Possibly, Beckel was the "thinking" half and Yawn was the "sitting" half after all.

Oh well, the straw man in Oz seemed to attract crows all right?

Fox News’ Eboni Williams Tears

John Lewis ‘John Who?’

Posted By: KarenJ1- 12/9/2017 3:42:41     Post Reply
Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

Roger Goodell’s NFL contract is a slap

The decision by the NFL Compensation Committee on Wednesday to give Commissioner Roger Goodell a five-year contract extension that could top out at nearly $40 million a year is pure craziness. NFL owners are watching their brand implode and TV ratings for games plummet under a reckless commissioner – and they fail to see that Goodell is running the wrong game plan. Giving Goodell a huge compensation package like this – 90 percent of it tied to incentives – is like giving Hillary Clinton an award for outstanding email practices and honesty. Goodell’s contract extension is a slap in the face

Brittany Covington, 19, pleaded guilty to a hate crime in court on Friday, according to the Chicago Tribune. The suspect also “pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and intimidation charges. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped additional charges, including kidnapping,” the Tribune said. Despite the guilty plea, Cook County Circuit Judge William Hooks released Covington without jail time. Telling Covington, “Do not mess this

Hillary Clinton´s Russia collusion
doesn´t interest the media
Washington Examiner, by Eddie Scarry    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 12/9/2017 11:19:38     Post Reply
If the media are defining “collusion” as President Trump’s team being willing to accept potentially beneficial information from Russia in the 2016 election, all future cable news analysis on the issue should include a disclaimer: Hillary Clinton’s campaign did precisely the same thing and more! There is no real consensus about what any collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia would have entailed (which is helpful for Democrats and self-interest-driven Republicans like Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in maintaining a scandalous fog over the White House) but news reports typically discuss it with ominous references to campaign advisers and aides who had any

Case Closed: FBI says Sessions

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article

The FBI has put to bed a controversy whipped up by liberal critics of Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his contacts with foreign officials including Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the 2016 presidential campaign. An FBI email released through the Freedom of Information Act said that Sessions had no obligation to reveal any contacts with foreign officials unless he “developed personal relationships” with them. The bottom line: His two contacts with Kislyak in 2016 did not have to be revealed to the FBI on his SF-86 security clearance application, part of his confirmation process. Sessions has repeatedly denied that he

California Gov.

Rep. Hakeen Jeffries (D-N.Y.) blasted President Trump’s Friday campaign rally in Pensacola, Fla., in a tweet Saturday, labeling it a “hatefest.” The tweet also appeared to blast Roy Moore, the GOP Senate candidate in Alabama, as "a racially insensitive homophobe." “Is he referring to the HATEFEST on the Alabama border designed to bolster a racially insensitive homophobe?” Jeffires tweeted. (Snip) Trump’s rally came just days before the Alabama special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former seat. While the White House maintained Trump wouldn’t go to Alabama to campaign for Moore, the Pensacola rally took place just miles away

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has sabotaged his own investigation of Russian meddling into the 2016 election. He has only himself to blame for ruining what could have been a credible probe. (Snip) Because Mueller improperly stacked the deck of his special counsel staff with biased crusaders, he transformed what was supposed to be an impartial investigation into an illegitimate and seemingly corrupt one. To restore integrity, Attorney General Jeff Sessions should un-recuse himself from the case for the limited purpose of cleaning up Mueller’s mess. There is no law that prevents the attorney general from doing this. Sessions should remove all of

n the past few days, some on Fox News have invoked the KGB and “secret police” in denouncing the FBI, and MSNBC’s Ari Melber noticed a lot of this “noise” today. With more conservative media figures amping up criticism of Robert Mueller, Melber took a note of the “noise” and said it’s “getting louder.” He showed clips of Fox Newsers like Gregg Jarrett and Sean Hannity (taking a shot at the latter’s chart), expressing astonishment at the “secret police” rhetoric.

In early November Judge Roy Moore from Alabama was leading ultra-liberal Doug Jones by 20+ points in Alabama. Then the Washington Post published allegations of Roy Moore courting a young teenager 38 years ago in Alabama. That sent the liberal media on a frenzied attack against Judge Moore. Today Democrats think they have a shot at the Alabama race and several Republicans like Mitch McConnell are supporting Jones. Now this… According to Big League Politics former Jeb Bush spokesperson Tim Miller leaked the anti-Moore stories to the Washington Post. Is anyone surprised?

A former clerk for Judge Alex Kozinski said the powerful and well-known jurist, who for many years served as chief judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, called her into his office several times and pulled up pornography on his computer, asking if she thought it was photoshopped or if it aroused her sexually. Heidi Bond, who clerked for Kozinski from 2006 to 2007, said the porn was not related to any case. One set of images she remembered was of college-age students at a party where “some people were inexplicably naked while everyone else was

California´s governor has said that deadly wildfires in the winter will be ´the new normal´, as fire crews rushed to contain the fires, with dry desert winds expected to intensify over the weekend. Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday toured Ventura County neighborhoods ravaged by a weeklong wildfire that killed at least one person and destroyed hundreds of homes and other buildings. At a news conference, the Democrat said drought and climate change mean California faces a ´new reality´ where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars. He added that gusty winds and

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time. Mr. Moore leads in most

An award-winning U.S. diplomat who was seen as a rising star at the State Department has issued a scathing resignation letter, accusing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the Donald Trump administration of undercutting the State Department and damaging America’s influence in the world. Elizabeth Shackelford, who most recently served as a political officer based in Nairobi for the U.S. mission to Somalia, wrote to Tillerson that she reluctantly had decided to quit because the administration had abandoned human rights as a priority and shown disdain for the State Department’s diplomatic work,

I´m pretty much done with the sex scandals. They were fun, but they´re just going to have to carry on without me. If someone broke the law and you can prove it, prosecute him. If someone violated the rules of his organization, eject him. Other than that, if women have forgotten the fine art of slapping a man in the face, there´s not a whole hell of a lot society can do for them. You keep silent for forty years and then ruin a man´s career with an unprovable allegation — and that makes you a hero? Not to me. Look,

Prior to President Donald Trump’s visit to the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum today, Fox & Friends brought on Trump supporter and former sheriff David Clarke to discuss the president’s appearance. And things got very tense very fast. Right off the bat, co-host Pete Hegseth asked Clarke what he thought about Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), a civil rights icon, deciding not to attend the opening because Trump would be in attendance. Clarke reacted by immediately dismissing Lewis. “John who?” Clarke mocking stated. “John Lewis — he was bloodied on the Selma bridge, Sheriff, when trying to protest voting

Sen. Richard Shelby says he wants a Republican elected to the Senate on Tuesday to represent Alabama, but that he didn’t vote for GOP candidate Roy Moore in the special election. The Alabama Republican said he’s already cast his ballot, and that he chose a write-in candidate. “I’d rather see the Republican win, but I’d rather see a Republican write-in. I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore. I didn’t vote for Roy Moore,” Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” Moore has been accused of pursuing sexual relationships with teenagers when he was in his 30s. In some

Firing Mueller would be disastrous;
discrediting him is impeachment politics

Short of impeaching President Trump, does anything excite Democrats, the Resistance, and NeverTrumpers like the prospect of the president firing special counsel Robert Mueller? Firing Mueller would, or course, be the quickest way for Trump to get impeached, which might explain a certain air of anticipation in discussions of whether — some prefer to say when -- Trump will sack the prosecutor leading the Trump-Russia investigation.There has been a lot of news and commentary recently interpreting criticism of Mueller by a number of pro-Trump media voices as an effort to encourage Trump to fire Mueller, or lay the groundwork for

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) says President Trump´s stance on climate change demonstrates that he does not appear to fear the "wrath of God" or have any regard for the "existential consequences" of his climate change policies. “I don’t think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility ... this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed,” Brown said in an interview on CBS´s "60 Minutes," which is set to air on Sunday. Brown, who previously studied to become

Loose dentures? More like loose screws. Donald Trump was slurring his words pretty good last week for a guy who fancied himself an expert when it came to Hillary Clinton’s alleged brain damage. What would he make of his own slurred speech and bizarre behavior? brain tumor from the weight of that massive combover sitting on top of his head like a live farm animal? Simply slurred speech because his thoughts are so fantastic that his mouth can’t keep up?

WASHINGTON — Around 5:30 each morning, President Trump wakes and tunes into the television in the White House’s master bedroom. He flips to CNN for news, moves to “Fox & Friends” for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” because, friends suspect, it fires him up for the day. Energized, infuriated — often a gumbo of both — Mr. Trump grabs his iPhone. Sometimes he tweets while propped on his pillow, according to aides. Other times he tweets from the den next door, watching another television. Less frequently, he makes his way up the hall to the
