A Message From Lucianne

Why I am excited to join Fox News and take part in a civil-and sensible-debate

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 3/19/2019 7:40:45 AM

I am excited by the opportunity to share my perspective and views with the Fox News audience and to help shape the dialogue at this important juncture in our history. More importantly, I’m eager to learn from the experience. The 2020 presidential election is a consequential moment in American democracy. Everything we believe in as Americans will be examined and, in essence, ratified by our votes. But it concerns me, as it does the majority of good Americans, that our national debate has become hostile and disrespectful. We no longer simply agree to disagree. Too often we demonize the intentions

Is Fox News hoping to get the Dems to allow them to host a debate by dangling the opportunity for Brazile to steal the questions and pass them to Biden?

I could bet that what she defines as “civil and sensible” is for us to be quiet and go along with her party’s agenda, which is neither civil nor sensible in the least.

The wrong sort of recycling, to be sure. Nothing of value can be reclaimed from this hack. By her own admission she is:
1) Corrupt - as the debate questions-furnished-to-Clinton incident demonstrated
2) A liar - as her concealment of the incident demonstrated
3) A liar (again) - as her slander of GHWB about his ´affair´ demonstrated
4) A fool or merely a liar again or both - as her feigned ignorance about the basics of email and her ridiculous Little Rascals wide-eyed pantomime panic about ´keep dem Russian postmarks away from me, boo!´ (her words, not mine) demonstrated

You can´t swing a dead cat in DC without hitting a liberal Democrat spewing centrally-issued talking points (see: Harf, Marie and Williams, Juan). Brazile is not only a charlatan, she´s surplus to requirements.

It’s civil debate if they have something to say with common sense, but they don’t. The liberals have been mouthing off for eighty years with policies that require more and more taxes! And everything they touch turns to excrement! The proof is in the cities they have controlled since forever and the massive Federal debt that they are mostly responsible for in creating. What really ticks me off is that she gave Hillary the debate questions. There’s something rotten in the House of Murdoch.

RE: #3 - I don´t understand why folks on this site see the need to dump all over Geraldo. While he doesn´t hold back when he disagrees with POTUS on an issue, he openly supports the President and counts Donald Trump as a personal friend. People need to pay attention and be fair when it comes to dealing with people.

#5 is right about Brazille. That´s exactly why this move to FOX is a Demo coup. She comes across as oh-so-warm, wise, and motherly. Her soothing and composed persona and gentle wit will disarm and sway many viewers and the Demos know it. She´s perfect for the job of finishing off FOX from within.
Don´t ever ever forget how she explained her unethical behavior of giving Hillary the debate questions in advance: "What I sought to do was to ensure that we had these issues on the table, and I made sure that our candidates, I didn´t want them blindsided. That´s what I admitted to..."
This may be the greatest spin in recorded Demo political history. She pulled it off. She does this for a living. Then AND now.
How stupid can FOX be?

The biggest question is when dim Donna invites Spacey Abrams and they both sit on a seesaw which one will end up on the moon. The former head of The Gorbot for POTUS is not anyone whose opinion I would have any interest in. A liar, a cheat, with the morals of a goat. If it weren´t for Greg Gutfield I´d probably cancel the cable and save a ton of money.

#42 really hit on a pet peeve of mine. I don´t want both sides either, I want the truth and that is exclusive. I don´t want to hear leftist propaganda and talking points after each time the truth is spoken. It waters it down and frankly confuses the ill-informed.

FOX needs to get back to its roots. Bring back E.D. Hill. She was a dem, but the old-fashioned kind. She found out what the left is all about when they had her fired during the 2008 campaign. Go full on Conservative, and leave the leftie/commie/socialists to compete at those other news stations. Watch your ratings soar!

LOL, boys, boys, boys, didn´t you meet any normal, sane, people in your privileged lives? You dopes are going to lose the half of the half that still clung to the belief that FOX wasn´t another MSM goon leftist bunch of hypocrites. They are gone, thanks to you. Maybe you dopes think the left will come on board and forget the Faux rants. Right.

If only you had to do something on your own before this in your lives, but you didn´t. You are Princes, you really are and I expect more brilliant decisions like this to seep out of your lavish corporate offices. Enjoy the ride downhill, dopes.

Character matters not in the journalism and big news media world. Brazile CHEATED with Hillary in a Presidential debate. Watching Sean and Donna slobber all over each other was one of the worst things I have ever seen on Hannity. She is expert at coming across as friendly and motherly. What she is really doing is mocking and sticking the knife in the whole time. She ruled the time last night while getting in plugs for her book and outright lies about the Democrats and infanticide. Hannity should leave FNC.

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

Every student taking the SAT will now be given an ´adversity score´ to level the playing field between people with different social and economic backgrounds, but critics say children of affluent parents could be penalized by the new system. 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. Other elements of the adversity index include
China’s Holdings of U.S. Treasury Securities Hit 22-Month Low 10 replies
Posted by JoniTx 5/16/2019 12:23:21 PM
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.

Shock poll: 16% would give Trump 2 extra years, 7% would let him stay if defeated 16 replies

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.

Disgraced former Obama administration officials James Comey and John Brennan are reportedly duking it out publicly in what for all intents and purposes looks a whole lot like a real-life performance of the hilarious Mad magazine cartoon “Spy vs. Spy.”Except the implications of this “performance” are mad real, pun intended.This real-life feud over what’s often referred to as “spygate” concerns the infamous Steele dossier. 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.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out. 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.

Some Form of Socialism

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. 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
A federal judge’s ‘tell’ in his order
forcing Trump to turn over financial records
to House committee

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.

Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies
Posted by MissMolly 5/22/2019 3:57:46 AM
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

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
