Exclusive: Source Claims Fox News Host Secretly Worked to Get Jeanine Pirro Suspended to Curry Favor With Democrats

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 3/18/2019 9:09:17 PM

A source with intimate knowledge of the situation is claiming two Fox News hosts secretly maneuvered to get Judge Jeanine Pirro suspended over her controversial remarks about Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), with one, Bret Baier, allegedly seeking to curry favor with Democrats to reverse a decision to not allow Fox to host any of the party’s presidential primary debates by getting Fox to suspend Pirro. (Photos) The source asked TGP for anonymity to speak freely about the behinds the scenes maneuvers: The original complaint came from Bret Baier’s team. Bret saw an opportunity to make Fox News acceptable enough

I would have thought C Wallace would also be involved. Fox is really going down hill fast.

Who cares whether or not Fox gets to host any Dim debates? I´m not going to watch them whether Fox hosts any of them or not.

They´re just all going to out-Commie each other until one of those losers gets the nomination, at which point they will pivot and try to convince us that they are normal people. NOT!!!

Murdoch needs to appoint someone strong to the helm of Fox and those kids of his need to keep their grimy mitts off. Et tu, Brett Bair? The antics of Wallace, Juan, Geraldo and, of course, Shemp are well known, but Bair?

Sooner or later some entity is going to start a conservative news channel and Fox News Channel that is becoming a water carrier for the leftist and liberal Democrats by giving them a soapbox, along with rehashing a lot of CNN and MSNBC liberal propaganda in the form of video clips throughout the day, is going to go down the tubes.

And Shep has always been a person not to be trusted with the candy dish! Time to sink this ship called FOX! The few left better form another channel to watch and NOT on the computer but on the TV!

Fox News has not turned quickly. It never was a wholly "conservative" network.

We stopped watching Fox News after they took off Glenn Beck when he was exposing Soros´ influence through his Open Society network. We knew then that Fox was not interested in broadcasting the real truth. In hindsight, it appears Beck may have been getting close to how Soros tied into the Deep State and Uniparty.

Can you imagine what Beck found out? It is sad that his fragile psychological/emotional profile cracked under the pressure, but now understandable. Makes one appreciate the stamina, will and intelligence of President Trump.

Dump Fox - Its propaganda with a sprinkling of truth, and has been for a long time.

The libs on Fox....Wallace, Brett, Juan, Geraldo, Dana, Brit, Stywalt, Angie, Judge Napoltano, Kurtz, Shep, Shannon far outnumber the conservatives. My guess within a year Sean, Judge Janine, Laura will be replaced. I like the old Fox better. When they started in 1996 they were great, now I watch 5 shows.

After watching the FNC for any length of time it is hard to come away without having the feeling that Brett Baier, Shepherd Smith, and Chris Wallace are very duplicious media reporters when it comes to anything relating to President Trump. Obviously they are all Democrats who are out to better themselves at the expense of Trump as far as they can get away with doing that. No doubt Jeanine Pirro has become a big target as she has been a personal friend of Trump for decades.

In general we have watched as the FNC has changed into an organ that has become a soapbox for leftist and liberal Democrat politicians to spout their political propaganda and have also been broadcasting leftist and liberal Democrat propaganda throughout the day in the form of CNN and MSNBC anti-Trump video clips.

If someone or some entity were to start a legitimate conservative news channel that is available on cable, satellite, and streaming services, it would not be long before the FNC, as it is now being run, regressed to being a minor media player.

Fox has been a highly rated, or #1 cable news channel since its inception roughly 17 years ago. Things have changed.

A new Conservative alternative would be very welcome, and I would watch it.

I no longer get news from any kind of television. I read. And I pick and choose what I read as well. I have the time to do that, and the masses do not however.

I ask anyone I´m discussing issues with, where they get their information. They mostly say PBS, WaPo, NYT. None of those options are objective. Sorry

There is no surprise to find that Bret Baier is the individual to bring down the Judge. He and the blonde,Megyn Kelly, conspired before the first debate in the last election cycle. The two did find their efforts were lacking, causing more grief for them rather than Donald Trump. Fox may find his input to be lacking once again (should they continue down this path).

This President is not one to take lightly. Continue with your efforts and reap the consequences.

Less than a day after accepting a lucrative contract to lobby congress against Russia sanctions, a former John Kasich adviser has announced he is now backtracking and will reject the agreement. John Weaver has worked on many failed presidential campaigns — John McCain’s, John Huntsman’s, and Kasich’s — and on Wednesday accepted a contract worth $350,000 to lobby against sanctions on Russia. Weaver and his former boss Kasich had previously accused President Donald Trump’s campaign of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Weaver had also previously mocked the Trump administration for being weak on Russia sanctions. Thursday afternoon,

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Thursday misquoted a portion of President Donald Trump’s immigration speech and was quickly met with a fact-check by a Breitbart News reporter. Speaking in the Rose Garden, President Donald Trump unveiled immigration reform proposals aimed at increasing the quota for skilled workers. During his remarks, the president assailed some asylum seekers’ abuses of the country’s immigration system. “Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims,” he said. Acosta promptly accused the president of portraying

The scoring system was established by the national College Board, the nonprofit which administers the test, according to The Wall Street Journal. The new system will use 15 different factors to weigh a student´s adversity score, based on things such as the crime and poverty rates in the neighborhood where the teens grew up.

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities hit a 22-month low in March, according to data released today by the U.S. Treasury. As of February, entities in the People’s Republic of China had owned $1,130,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities. But in March that dropped to $1,120,500,000,000—a decline of $10,400,000,000. The last time entities in China owned less than $1,120,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities was in May 2017, when Chinese holdings were $1,102,200,000,000. Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities peaked more than five years ago in November 2013 at $1,316,700,000,000. They are now $196,200,000,000—or 14.9 percent--below that peak.

Nearly 2 of 10 Americans believe President Trump should be given two extra years in office because his agenda was stalled by the Russia election probe, and another 7 percent said he should stay in office if defeated, according to a new survey. The poll tested the public’s reaction to the end of special investigator Robert Mueller’s probe and found some sympathy for Trump and support for a tweet proposal by Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. to tack two years on to the Republican’s first term because the probe stole two years from his presidency.

The question everybody wants to be answered is “whodunit,” i.e., which one of these two disgraced officials was responsible for elevating the fraudulent, smear-filled document into undeserved relevance.

The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., joined the legion of “Game of Thrones” fans disappointed by the show’s finale. “I’m sad,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a video of the two legislators posted to Warren’s Twitter account Tuesday. “Disappointed about it.” “I was just really… meh,” said Warren. The pair bemoaned the arcs of the female characters who seemed prime to rule at the end of the series. Instead, one “went crazy” and the other settled for ruling only part of the continent. The lawmakers were not alone in their distaste for the series’ treatment of its female characters

The political zealotry of the federal judge who ordered ten years’ worth of Donald Trump’s financial records be turned over to the House Oversight and Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings has been revealed with a highly unusual provision of his order. (snip) The remedy for potential political bias in a federal judge’s ruling consists of the appeals process, with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and ultimately the Supreme Court able to reverse such a decision. But Judge Mehta’s order forbids this

After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Here’s a revealing — and disturbing — new poll that bears on the current gang fight among leftists for the soul of the Democratic Party and its 2020 presidential nomination. See Also: ESPN chief: You’ll never guess what our viewers want to hear nothing about Almost half of Americans in a new Gallup Poll believe that socialism would be a good thing for the United States to have. Almost half (43 percent). A good thing. Democrats like Bernie Sanders driving that party to the left may be on to something for a winning theme in next year’s vote. Today, a bare majority (51 percent) says socialism would

There’s no longer any way to avoid it: “Something strange is going on at Fox News.” “Something strange is going on at Fox News. Something very strange,” President Donald Trump told a throng of thousands at his Pennsylvania rally last night. “The audience showed their agreement by booing Fox News.” (The Blaze, May 21, 2019) According to the Blaze "President Donald Trump
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible
Democrats Embrace Socialism:Are We
Headed Towards 'Atlas Shrugged'?

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
