Former Rep. Paul Ryan was the Speaker of the House for the first two years of the Trump administration, but he believes his new job as a board member of Fox Corporation will finally allow him to "do something" about President Donald Trump, according to a new report in Vanity Fair. Ryan, who joined the Fox Corporation board in March, is now reportedly one of the most important voices pushing Fox CEO Lachlan Murdoch to transition Fox New and pivot away from Trump, according to Vanity Fair.

I am very proud the only Republican for whom I did not vote for since 18 was the Romney/Ryan ticket. There could not be a more useless pair.

Ryan the RINO, may think this would be a smart move, but I doubt becoming more like MSDNC is a smart move.

You do that and see how fast millions of us pivot away from FOX. Then your numbers will be on par with msnbc, cnbc, msnbc and all the others. In the toilet.

Fox itself will be like Megyn Kelly - distrusted by the Left, and shunned by the Right. If they take this tack, I predict their rapid demise. I would agree that the true conservatives on Fox and other networks and radio programs should start up a new, conservative network, never mind the "fair and balanced."

While I don't doubt that Ryan is a "never Trump RINO", I also consider the "source" of this "information" is Vanity Fair -- one of the most rabid anti-Trump rag sheets out there!!! Fox News used to be the one "fair and balanced" news station on TV. But awhile ago, they decided to try to be more lie-beral, and they have quickly gone from cable news total dominance to competing with ultra-lie-beral propaganda outlets like MSNBC and CNN -- and watching their ratings crash. I really don't know how much worse they can get than to fully mimic MSNBC!!!.

Question: Why didn't he "do something" when he was Speaker of the House? Though, I think I read some place that he liked to exercise a lot. But, that would be so great if there were a conservative network, and the really good writers would swarm to it, and we would have really interesting broadcasting. It would be so great! I might get cable again.

If this piece is accurate, Paul Ryan is not much of a Reagan Republican at all. The first Republican rule of thumb under Reagan was, "Speak no ill of your fellow Republicans." Ryan may not like Mr. Trump's style. Fine. But what does Ryan make of Mr. Trump's policies? What does he make of the judges Mr. Trump has nominated? Remember: Republicans in Congress ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare. First they needed the House. Then they needed the Senate after they'd won the House. Then they needed the White House after they'd won the House and the Senate. They got all three. But Ryan was so politically constipated he couldn't pass gas let alone a repeal and replace that was successful in both houses of Congress. So . . . do-nothing Ryan would be wise to shut his yap and beg God for forgiveness for being such a tool.

Fox is already in trouble. Not just me but everyone I know no longer watches Fox as he/she/they once did. I tune in for news headlines in the early am and then tune out. I no longer watch Bret Baier...the EDIT on the business channel is superior. Nor do I watch Martha McCallum aka: Martha The Mouth That Roars. She sits drooling as she tries to interrupt as she shows no interest in what's being said whatsoever. Shep is been long gone, Cavuto as well, and the list of so called experts they haul out for panels is an immediate tune out call. Who with an IQ that cracks ten could consider Brazile using her black American speaking accent as fair or balanced? She sneaked questions to Hillary before debates and that's only one instance. She'd sell her mother for a nickel. Then we have Jonah Golderg, Geraldo, the billard balls from the evening shows, and a line up that includes the liar Page from USA Today, AB Stoddard and her vile anti Trump screeds...you get the picture. I can't think of more than a handful of people they haul out who are worth listening to. Leave it to the Murdoch boys and their flaming leftie wives to tank Fox. If it weren't for the business channel we'd be all done now. Fox and Friends is a joke. If poor dumb Ainsley could form a complete thought or ask a question that wasn't puerile or stupid...and the cute stuff and sports in front of the building...tedious at best, boring at worst, always annoying and definitely the cue to switch to the business channel or local news. And now Paul Ryan? Hey Fox...go to WI and question people who know this far, far left dimwit toady for Romney. Knowing about his association with Fox is enough to tune out...the man is a two bit badly compromised butt kisser for the left who wears a GOP button when it's convenient.

Earlier this month, during a bipartisan meeting in Kiev, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) delivered a pointed message to Ukraine’s new president, Volodymyr Zelensky. While choosing his words carefully, Murphy made clear — by his own account — that Ukraine currently enjoyed bipartisan support for its U.S. aid but that could be jeopardized if the new president acquiesced to requests by President Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, to investigate past corruption allegations involving Americans, including former Vice President Joe Biden’s family.

It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo. The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don't appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification. In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, 'Yes.' However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked 'uneasy', and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting. 'Errr. I'm just learning about this,' Hillary responded.

On Sunday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” former ABC “World News’ anchor Sam Donaldson accused President Donald Trump’s supporters of having a “fixation” on returning America to a “white Christian country.” They want to return this country to the white Christian country that they believe it should be again. Donaldson said, “The Trump rallies are Trump’s strong supporters. I mean, ‘lock her up,’ all the things he says, all the vicious, mean things he says, they love it. There are these people in this country. They’re good Americans otherwise. They’ll probably give you the shirt off their back, they’ll help you if you need it, but they have this fixation.

Consumer goods giant Procter & Gamble faces pressure from environmentalists to clean up its act. More than 150 groups are pushing the maker of Charmin toiler paper and Bounty paper towels to use recycled materials in its products. Currently, neither of those products uses recycled paper, and about one-third of it is sourced from Canada's boreal forest — a large swath of virgin forest that rings the Arctic Circle and acts as a critical check on climate change.

There are plenty of anti-Trump leftists on Fox News, and that’s a good thing.

All of Washington has been atwitter with the president’s recent decision to draw down American forces from their ongoing mission in Syria. The reason is the purported American abandonment — betrayal, in the eyes of many — of the Syrian Kurds. But the situation is more complicated than that. There has been much conflation of both the American mission in Syria and the disposition of America’s erstwhile Kurdish friends. The fact is, despite being the world’s largest stateless ethnic population, sharing a contiguous landmass that cuts across Turkey, Syria, Iraq, and Iran — roughly a 500,000-square-kilometer area — the Kurds are by no means a monolithic entity.

News broke yesterday morning that Hunter Biden has officially stepped down from the board of directors of a Chinese-backed private equity company. Additionally, he made a public promise that if his father, Joe Biden, wins the presidency, he will "forego all foreign work." Quite a lot to unpack here. Firstly, he's missing the point entirely. While President Trump's Ukraine phone call shined a bright light on Joe and Hunter Biden's corruption, the outrage was never about him working for a foreign company. It was about how he got those positions in the first place — with his father's power and status in the U.S. government.
