An "Ashamed" Fox News
Commentator Just Quit
The "Propaganda Machine"

BuzzFeed News, by Tom Namako

Original Article

Posted By:danvillebill, 3/20/2018 6:06:59 PM

A retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor quit Tuesday and denounced the network and President Donald Trump in an email to colleagues. "Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration," wrote Ralph Peters, a Fox News "strategic analyst." "Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed," he wrote.

No loss.

Peters is not Conservative and a Hillary supporter. I turned him off any time he came on. He is rabidly anti Russia and everything he thinks and says is colored by that position. He is no loss

So Peter´s contract was up for renewal, and he thought it was not going to be renewed. Interesting that an opinion commentator calls it propaganda when other people express their opinion.

The past few times I´ve seen Colonel Peters on Fox, he seemed extremely angry, combative, and downright surly with the hosts. Apparently, he feels that everyone should think as he does.

I believe there are many reasons to dislike Donald Trump, but even if I loathed him (which I do not), I´d have to admit he´s doing a good job.

He is worthless. His point of view is narrow: what course of action will benefit the military or intelligence industry. he is all about getting us involve in foreign intrigue, regardless of whether or not it is in our national interest. Go away and shut up, Mr. Peters.

Peters is calling it a game during the 7th inning stretch. Big mistake. When the game is over and the sun shines brightly onto the scores of felonies that BHO and his friends have committed--and if there is a God, will be convicted for---the Colonel´s name will be added to the list of people who, if true patriots, will thank those at Fox and their investigative reporters who have helped pull the curtain back.

He actually isn´t ´ashamed.´ Just a wounded duck whine and his opinion of what is a ´propaganda machine´ doesn´t stick considering his past statements in front of the camera. He is just another partisan, puffed up, hack who got on TV. His opinions about anything are just opinions. Point to facts, all the facts, or you are just another wind up monkey with the same credibility as every other news reader, in other words, none.

What those unfamiliar with things military might not know is that a "light" Colonel is a NUB, a nobody, whale poop when it comes to strategy and tactics.
I was never much impressed with Mr. Critical, ´Ralphie Boy´ Peters, who never commanded anything more involved than his kid´s birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese.

I expect those asked for their opinion to express one. Peters´ opinions, such as they are, are his. He is not a host. Trump sycophant Hannity is.
Peters´ overall indictment of the network is ludicrous. There are, however, some on that network whose abandonment of conservative thought is worrisome.

(I´m repeating what I wrote in the original article´s commentary.)

"When prime-time hosts dismiss facts and empirical reality to launch profoundly dishonest assaults on a model public servant and genuine war hero such as Robert Mueller."

Is Peters attempting to refute SARA CARTER and JOHN SOLOMON? Sean Hannity is only a news commentator and mediagenic personality thinking his way through the information, he isn´t the one doing the DEEP and DANGEROUS research. They are the sleuths ferreting out the secrets the FBI is suppressing, not Mr. Hannity.

Robert Mueller assembled a one-sided team of go-for-the-throat Democrat lawyers. If he was so judicious in his character, it would have been a 50-50 split and he would have stayed within the stricture of what he was supposed to investigate.

Methinks the colonel disregards J. Edgar Hoover and the unresolved matter of the assassination of President Kennedy. People: There is no way that the motorcade could have had its route altered to loop in front of the Book Depository without DEEP STATE planning and subterfuge.

"-all the while scaremongering with lurid warnings of "deep-state" machinations--

I cannot be part of the same organization, even at a remove. To me, Fox News is now wittingly harming our system of government for profit."

>>> I encountered Colonel Peters at an academic conference. He is both acidulous and bilious, also, he´s inwardly embittered and outraged about something, but it ain´t Trump.

You could almost hear liberals gnash their teeth Monday night as President Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. They know they have almost no chance of preventing his confirmation. Kavanaugh is widely liked in Washington legal circles. He gave a humanizing introductory speech after the president introduced him at a White House ceremony. The judge has impeccable educational qualifications and already serves on the powerful U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. He is even respected by liberals such as Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, who hired him to teach at Harvard Law School before she

Last week, on the MSNBC TV show "Morning Joe," MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch said that every American who votes for President Donald Trump is a Nazi. His exact words: "If you vote for Trump, then you, the voter -- you, not Donald Trump -- are standing at the border like Nazis going, ´You here. You here.´" Now, as virtually every Jew of Deutsch´s generation knows, a Nazi saying, "You here.

Sen. Jeff Flake has gone public with his threat to stall judicial nominations seeking action to rebuff President Donald Trump on tariffs. It comes more than a week after the Arizona Republican first held up the nomination of Britt Grant to be a judge on the Atlanta-based 11th Circuit Court of Appeals at the Judiciary Committee. “We’ve approved a number of judges. That is important,” Flake said Sunday. “But, Article I — the Congress, Article II — the executive, are important as well.”

I confess to being more weary than dizzy from the Dr. Gowdy–and–Mr. Trey routine. Just three weeks ago, Representative Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican who chairs the House Oversight Committee, assured us that everything was peachy with the FBI — no way, no how did the bureau “spy” on the Trump campaign when it deployed an “informant” to pry information from Trump-campaign officials. As Mollie Hemingway pointed out at the time, Gowdy had not seen relevant documents the FBI and Justice Department have been withholding from Congress — in fact, his spokeswoman said he did not even know what documents

The United States has resigned in protest from the UN Human Rights Council, which has a long and ignominious record of protecting the world’s worst abusers of human rights. The proximate cause of the U.S. resignation was the council’s unwillingness to act on the matter of Venezuela, where the socialist government of Nicolas Maduro is engaged in political massacres and the use of Soviet-style hunger-terror against its political enemies. Venezuela remains, incredibly enough, not only protected by the Human Rights Council but an active member of it, an honor shared Vladimir Putin’s Russia and its political assassins, the People’s Republic

South Florida’s not quite Jurassic Park, but it’s getting close. Packs of green iguanas are swarming seawalls, roaming yards and parks, and leaving a path of destruction and filth in their wake. Like a shot of espresso, the hot summer sun has stoked activity in the cold-blooded creatures, which experts say may be at record numbers. “This year is the most iguanas I’ve seen and I’ve been in business for nine years,” says Thomas Portuallo, owner of Fort Lauderdale-based Iguana Control.

Political correctness run amok is a popular topic on the right these days. Indeed, the conservative bookshelf is chock full of best-sellers devoted to the topic. Subject matters vary. One may focus on the hypocrisy of campus speech codes, another on the revisionist attempt to indict our founding fathers, yet another on secular progressivism’s relentless campaign against religious freedom. Still, progressive-inspired changes to our value system have made their mark — most notably during the eight-year reign of Barack Obama — and particularly among the generation popularly known as “Millennials.”

On June 27, the world’s first robot-crafted burger will roll off a conveyor belt in San Francisco and into the hands of the public. You could call it the freshest burger on Earth. The product, from Bay Area-based Creator, a culinary robotics company, is assembled and cooked in a machine that contains 20 computers, 350 sensors, and 50 actuator mechanisms. It does everything from slicing and toasting the brioche bun to adding toppings (to order) and seasoning and cooking the patties, all in five minutes. The meat is ground to order—why it’s touted as so fresh—and sourced from premium ingredients.

What do you do with an FBI agent, sworn to uphold the law, who flagrantly violates the law in a rogue investigation aimed at making a name for himself by bringing down some high-profile targets? Why . . . you promote him, of course. At least that is the way the Justice Department answered that question in the case of David Chaves, an FBI agent who serially and lawlessly leaked grand-jury information, wiretap evidence, and other sensitive investigative intelligence to the media in his quest to make an insider-trading case against some celebrities.

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

There is an American besides President Donald Trump who was privy to the two-hour private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – a government translator who sat in on the entire meeting. Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.
