‘Come on, boo!’ Hannity’s warm welcome for Donna Brazile has fans changing the channel in disgust

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 3/20/2019 12:21:06 PM

On Tuesday longtime Fox News host Sean Hannity welcomed former Democrat National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile to the network by inviting her onto his show, “Hannity,” so he could grill her to smithereens in a fast-paced “lightning round” debate over various issues. The scorching, oftentimes hilarious grilling started right away thanks to the former DNC chair’s refusal to stick to the “lightning round” rules and keep her answers sweet and to the point.“Medicare for all is going to be $3.3 trillion for every year for ten years. And people like Kamala Harris say that people would have no choice at

This is the New Fox. Thanks Paul Ryan. Getting a total left wing nutjob on Fox like DB to spread the party talking points is going to blow off viewers. Im pretty much done with Fox. Levin/Blaze TV is my new home choice for viewing what´s really going on.

Fox News was the ratings champion for several years because it was the only member of the MSM that would show the conservative side of issues in a positive way -- while still being fair and balanced.

I guess they didn´t like being the champions, because they have slowly morphed into CNN-lite!!!!! And now they seem to be doubling-down on stupid!!!!!!

I haven´t watched Fox News in months, and the recent changes sure aren´t calling me back!!! But I guess that is what they want, since I´m clearly not their "target audience" any more...

Which is why that super nut, Rachel Maddow os a close second behind Hannity... Or should I say that Rachael will soon overtake Hannity. Both are pretty much one trick pony´s. Maddow is "Hate Trum" and Hannity is, "Stay tuned... we really got big news".

Yup, we did this, too.
In fact I´m thinking I´d rather watch bars getting rescued, homeowners trading places to remodel and cute, slow-moving mysteries than Fox News anymore.
I can get enough coverage from the web.

I did watch the first few minutes of Sean interviewing Ms. Brazile. When he let her get by with killing newborn infants as "a woman´s reproductive right" I left. There are still some shows I will watch on FOX. I used to turn it on and leave it on but not anymore.

I´m more bothered by Ryan than Brazile. Somehow I expect her to play into the hands of the conservative message. Why hide the stupidity, expose it.

It will be about what role she plays and how they manage it so I´m remaining open minded. Heck, have her on Tucker´s show, that could be some fun stuff. I also think there´s a chance she´ll rat out some of her fellow rats.

As far as I am concerned, Donna committed a crime and no one should hire her.
My mother used to say "Some people fall in (poop) and come out smelling like a rose"

They all rely on young people who have no idea of their history, just like Shillary and Slick.

Maybe some of the conservatives who have jobs on Fox are getting worried over their prospective job longevity, especially since Fox but the duplicious phony conservative Paul Ryan on their board of directors?

Is it time for the powers at be to start a new conservative network, as shortly there may be a lot of conservative talking heads unemployed.

The left is taking everything away from Trump supporters for 2020- Fox is considered a major threat for the leftists come 2020. Fox is being destroyed or at least seriously degraded. For everyone who says they are leaving Fox, the leftists claim one more victory.

Saw she was on Hannity last night and changed the channel.

Nearly puked when Brett Bair gushed over her on Special Report tonight. Yelled at the TV too. Wife and I muted her when she spoke. Is Brett angling to get one of the Democrat primary debates with this play?

Wrote to Fox corporate in NYC, complaining about her lying and feeding HRC questions before interview.

Tonight when the booming economy was discussed, she chimed in and said Trump took what Obama started and ran with it.

I began yelling again, only louder!

This lying fox has been invited into the hen house while judge Jeanine has been kicked out.

Not fair. Not balanced. And not afraid to drive viewers away and ratings down.

Why?

President Donald Trump´s White House is asking the public to report social media companies if they suspect ´political bias´ resulted in their account being suspended or banned by platforms such as Facebook or Twitter. Trump has repeatedly attacked Google, Facebook and Twitter for what he claims is bias in their treatment of conservatives - a theme he is likely to expound on during the 2020 election.Now the White House wants data on the tech giants´s actions along with information on the user reporting them - including the person´s citizenship status and contact information.

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.

China’s Holdings of U.S. Treasury Securities Hit 22-Month Low 10 replies

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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
