At what point does Fox News pull the plug when a featured talking head spouts a discredited conspiracy theory? Donna Brazile, who forever discredited herself as corrupt when she supplied debate questions in advance to her former boss, Hillary Clinton, and was fired by CNN for it, found a new home at Fox News as one of their “contributors” (people paid to be available a certain number of hours for on-air commentary). But in an appearance over the weekend, she made the argument that Hillary Clinton only lost because of Russian interference – a contention for which there is no evidence whatsoever: (hat tip: Daily Caller)

For my part, as a woman, I wouldn't have voted for PIAPS if someone had held a gun to my mother's head and threatened to skin my cat!! It had nothing to do with Russians and EVERYTHING to do with the candidate herself!!

Hillary was not elected because she's the most corrupt woman on planet Earth since Imelda Marcos and well in the lead. She is also just plain irritating.

I can't believe that Fox News is not aware of the fact that Democrat/Socialists do not join or participate anything, you invite them in for a bite to eat and they expect you to join them. Brazile doesn't think she went too far she believes that she hasn't gone far enough, freedom of speech is their right and theirs alone. I'd hate to lose Fox News, but the experimenting that's going on has lost my viewership until I hear they have stopped pandering to those who hate us.

Donna was a liar when she worked for Hillary and she us a liar now. She wants to control the "discussion" by not allowing anyone else to talk, which is rude and a sure sign she cannot defend her unsubstantiated lies. I do not want to see her ugly face or hear her abrasive voice again!

#1, AG Barr has already stated that Huber is no longer handling anything, since he was simply waiting for direction from Horowitz, thus, had not even worked on anything. Durham has taken over what Huber was supposed to have handled. Brazile proving she's only using this post to push her political agenda to the Fox audience. She knows the Russians didn't do anything to alter or change the votes, as stated by Rod Rosenstein.

Hillary lost because of Hillary. The DNC did everything to ensure that that Hillary was the anointed candidate and "colluded" with the Russians to produce a phony dossier that made its way into the right hands and she still lost. Donna Brazile just can't admit that as a candidate, Hillary sucks!

I am with #3. Fox News has the audacity to hire a woman who gave the Presidential debate questions to a Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. I am sorry but that is disqualifying as a hire. How can anyone watching believe this crook? Fox News, except for the night time opinion 3 and the business channel folks, is done for me.

Isn't it funny that indiscretions by Republicans always receive a "life sentence" but those perpetrated by Democrats are easily shrugged off and have no long term consequences? It seems like the statute of limitations on Democrat nefarious activities is about ninety days, if that. Like an untreated rash...they just never seem to go away.

The degree of ignorance the RUSSIA! conspirators display is astounding. They have never provided any plausible reason why Russian would support Trump whatsoever! Above all, Putin and the Russians are pragmatic. Russia's largest source of trade income and power are oil and gas exports. It is beyond dispute that Hillary would have continued and even strengthened Obama's stranglehold on American energy production - for the climate's sake. Trump, on the other hand, made it perfectly clear that he would support increasing American energy production to the point of becoming a net exporter - diminishing Russian power and influence. Why? Oh, why? Why would Putin support Trump?

Since Hillary created the whole Russia mess, in a roundabout way Brazille may be correct. The fact that the hoax poured water on the witch would be poetic justice. I'm thinking that Fox was pressured to hire a female version of Juan and Geraldo but their choice went a bit too far to the left. I haven't tuned in for months.

Fox apparently doesn't care anymore what kind of crackpot leftists they present as having valid opinions. From Jessica Tarlov (who also has a voice that challenges nails on a blackboard) to Marie Harf (who presents ridiculous, incorrect stories and then defends the stories until shocked co-hosts go quiet in disbelief), now they've added genial but discredited Donna Brazile. I can't even watch FN for more than about 5 minutes anymore. Give me OAN (which I still can't get unfortunately).

It's hard to be upset with FOX over Donna Brazile's lies when they've allowed Juan Williams to lie his backside off for years. I stopped watching FOX because of all of the never-trumpers they filled the panels with (on some days they were worse than MSDNC), and for them letting Juan, mostly unchallenged, repeat the most ludicrous, salacious DNC talking points day after day. What they're letting Donna spout off with comes as no surprise.

The legal debris field has been cleared and the objections of Native American and environmentalist special interest groups nullified by a three-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Washington Post reports: A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday ordered dismissal of the lawsuit by environmental and Native American groups, saying President Donald Trump had revoked a 2017 permit allowing the $8 billion pipeline to be built. Trump later issued a new permit, and the appellate judges agreed with Justice Department attorneys who say that nullifies the legal challenge involving environmental impacts.

A 22-year-old man was arrested this week after allegedly planning to carry out a terrorist attack in Times Square, the most popular tourist destination in New York City. Ashiqul Alam of Jackson Heights, Queens, was arrested after planning to buy a pair of 9mm Glock semiautomatic handguns. The serial numbers on the weapons had been obstructed. Alam was arrested as part of an FBI sting operation. As alleged, Ashiqul Alam bought illegal weapons as part of his plan to kill law enforcement officers and civilians in a terrorist attack on Times Square,” Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue said in a public statement.

While there is nothing “inherently untoward about such arrangements,” as noted in the Washington Post, there is much ado being made in the anti-Trump media about who foot the bill for President Donald Trump’s family to join their father this week during his state visit to the United Kingdom. Unfortunately for the cabal, according to a source who spoke with the Daily Mail, his sons, Donald Jr., Tiffany and Eric, and his wife, Lara, paid their own way. Much of the overseas media was positive in its coverage of the president’s visit, as he presented himself as a strong, competent leader.

House Democrats apparently believe all of their hard work chasing impeachment, collusion and obstruction claims against President Donald Trump deserve a reward. Tone-deaf Congressional Democrats are now proposing a pay raise for themselves, lifting a nearly decade-long pay freeze that would effectively give them an extra $4,500 next year, according to The Hill. Cost-of-living pay increases were guaranteed by a 1989 federal ethics law which was suspended by a Democratic-controlled Congress back in 2009 when salaries were at about $174,000. But now, with the House poised to vote next week on a $1 trillion spending package, 2020 funding bills could give lawmakers their first bump in salary in a decade.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reportedly told top Democrats that she wants to see President Donald Trump 'in prison'.

'I don't want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison,' Pelosi said in the closed-door meeting, multiple Democratic sources familiar with the meeting told the outlet. Pelosi, who fears political disaster if impeachment proceedings are launched without broad public support, argued that it would be better to see Trump defeated in the next election and then criminally prosecuted as a private citizen.

The 2020 election is lurching toward us like a malfunctioning robot, and I think we must ask ourselves: Can we risk nominating a man for president? Men selected as major-party nominees for president have failed to win the popular vote 50 percent of the time. Contrast that to the 100 percent of the time that a female nominee for president has won the popular vote. More importantly, are Americans ready to withstand another four years of male presidency? It is unpleasant to traffic in stereotypes, and many men are in no way like this, but recent experience teaches that for usually 31 days a month (sometimes 30, occasionally 28),

National Public Radio’s supervising senior standards and practices editor Mark Memmott recently published a “guidance reminder” instructing the non-profit media organization’s employees in how to frame abortion news. Memmott wrote: “The term ‘unborn’ implies that there is a baby inside a pregnant woman, not a fetus. Babies are not babies until they are born. They're fetuses. Incorrectly calling a fetus a ‘baby’ or ‘the unborn’ is part of the strategy used by antiabortion groups to shift language/legality/public opinion. That is simply a bold-faced lie. Memmott added: “NPR doesn't use the term ‘abortion clinics.’ We say instead, ‘medical or health clinics that perform abortions.’
