Fox News Is Now a
Threat to National Security

Original Article

Monday’s split-screen drama, as the House Judiciary Committee weighed impeachment charges against President Trump and as the Justice Department’s inspector general released a 476-page report on the FBI’s handling of its 2016 investigation into Trump’s campaign, made one truth of the modern world inescapable: The lies and obfuscations forwarded ad infinitum on Fox News pose a dangerous threat to the national security of the United States. The facts of both dramas were clear to objective viewers: In the one instance, there’s conclusive and surprisingly consistent evidence that President Trump pushed Ukraine to concoct dirt on a domestic political rival to affect the 2020 presidential election, and in the other, Justice Department

There's nothing worse than a sore loser. I assume he is wondering the streets looks for a safe place to suck his thumb, play with some baby goats and perhaps color a picture of a MAGA hat. A mind is a terrible thing to waste and this guy is wasted.

The Left has labeled Fox News as a traitorous cabal which threaten national security and the NRA as a terrorist organization and our free speech as "hate speech" which must be suppressed at all costs. The Left has taken off its mask and is now flaunting its Fascist predelictions for all the world to see. What the Deep State has done to Carter Page it can do to all of us.

One can only shake one's head and chuckle at the antics of Wired - the venerable pioneer of Communist-front websites. Give them credit for persistence - they have been promoting the Commie Party line for nearing 30 years. I'm surprised they are still around.

Name change is in order. I suggest UNWIRED. What a load of offal. Can I say that? There was no quid pro quo. Period. There was no obstruction of justice. There was no abuse of power. There is nothing impeachable which has been brought forth at present. On the other hand, there was abundant evidence of Hunter Biden being given a lot of money in exchange for large money transfers to the Biden trusts. Can that be investigated? Please? Normally a person is appointed to a Board of Directors for reasons related to that person's abilities. Hunter had shown the ability to get kicked out of the Navy. He had no petroleum or geology skill that I know of. There was a lot of suspicion of connections between Burisma and the corrupt Ukraine system. Did not Plugs get a prosecutor fired? I suggest a money flow from the US to Burisma and back into the Biden trusts. Is this legal? If Republicans are not permitted to call witnesses, if they are not permitted to question witnesses, if they are not allowed in closed-door hearings in the basement, then suspicions will be raised of bias. N'est pas?

What idiot wrote this? What idiot posted this garbage on this forum? READ THE TRANSCRIPT, STUPID. The favor Trump asked the Ukrainian President was to get to the bottom of alleged Ukraine interference in the 2016 election, and specifically Crowdstrike's role in it. There was no mention of Joe Biden in that discussion. The first mention of Joe Biden comes much later, and it is clear that Trump is talking about how Joe bragged that he threatened to withhold US funds unless the fired a specific prosecutor (who was investigating Burisma, who hired his son) To conflate this into "a dangerous threat to the national security of the United States" is beyond absurd. What happened to the job of the Commander in Chief is to make sure that American aid to countries isn't siphoned off by corruption? What about the anti-corruption treaty between the US and Ukraine? The author of this article is a numbskull partisan Democrat, and anyone who buys what he wrote is grossly ignorant. this all gets back to the Democrat Call For Impeachment 15 minutes after the sear-in on Inauguration Day 2017.

The article is not intended to persuade but to enforce disciple among the liberal readers. The message to the reader is that you will be brainwashed and deceived by the devil if you commit the heresy of viewing Fox News. This is not unlike the way Scientologists enforce their control of their cult by shunning and excommunicating anyone who dares to browse the internet to read articles critical of their doctrine. I'm hoping people will see this article and then start watching Fox to confirm the ridiculous charges. When they realize they are getting real information and not being hypnotized by MSM spin the liberal scales will drop from their eyes.

Wired, a bunch of punks, geeks and Hollywood screenwriters. Oh so edgy with their urbancentric, Ivy League, hipster snark. Their politics are ultra pure media speak, which is to say far left and delusional. I expect every other issue to feature some tech based revamp of communism or some other elitist wet dream of a boot firmly on the throat of anyone who loves freedom of choice, personal responsibility, firearms and their own car. Wired is tired.

Trump's approval rating is
more stable than any president
in the history of polling
16 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 12/18/2019 5:12:13 AM Post Reply
Through months of impeachment proceedings, Democrats, with the help of a parade of witnesses, have hammered away at President Trump for abusing power. Yet as the House prepares to vote on impeaching him, Trump's approval rating is virtually unchanged from before the process started — neither cratering from the negative news or benefiting from any large-scale backlash against impeachment. This has become a pattern for Trump, whose approval rating (while historically low) is the most stable in history — or at least since Gallup started measuring presidential approval during the Harry Truman presidency. Since taking office, Trump has never polled higher than 46% or lower than 35%,

During an interview on CNN on Monday night, House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) pushed a conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. She admitted that she doesn't have evidence to support the claim. Her entire conspiracy theory centers around the idea that Vladimir Putin helped get President Trump elected because he would remove the sanctions placed on Russia. "Because I believe, even though I don't have the facts to prove it, I believe that Putin wanted to lift the sanctions. He's always wanted to lift the sanctions that were placed on him because of his interfering and encouraging into Crimea.
WaPo Fact Checker Slams Pelosi
for ‘Bogus Talking Point’ on Guns

Posted by Pluperfect 12/18/2019 4:59:51 AM Post Reply
A Washington Post fact-check released Thursday gave House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) four Pinocchios for a "bogus talking point" about the number of children killed with firearms each year. Pelosi has repeatedly claimed that 47 percent of gun deaths were "teenagers or children," according to the Post. CDC data show the real number is closer to 9 percent, meaning the House speaker exaggerates the true number by more than fivefold. This discrepancy led the Post to assign Pelosi's claim the harshest rating on its fact-checking scale.
IG report suggests FBI might cheat

Former FBI Director James Comey initially portrayed last week’s damning report on the bureau’s probe of Russiagate as a vindication. This week, Comey admitted that Inspector General Michael Horowitz discovered “real sloppiness,” which is “concerning.” That characterization does not begin to cover the problems described by Horowitz, which this week prompted a highly unusual public rebuke from the court that reviews secret warrant applications under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The FISA court called the FBI’s conduct “antithetical to the heightened duty of candor” that applies in such cases.

He added, “Had I known of them, Chris, yes, I would have called out the FBI at the same time. But I think it’s only fair to judge what we knew at the time, not what would be revealed two years later.” As Ed wrote yesterday, Schiff’s explanation for his failure to see

Fox News medical correspondent Dr. Marc Siegel says San Francisco residents should be worried about the homeless crisis' effect on their health after video surfaced of a homeless man defecating in the middle of an aisle at a local grocery store. "Isn't it ironic that a city of germaphobes, of exercise-conscious, environmentally conscious [people] ... are now in a city that's awash in human waste, which is spreading hepatitis A outbreaks every year," Siegel said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Tuesday. "Big outbreaks of hepatitis A, rats in the streets feeding off of the garbage in sewage, typhus, typhoid fever, rotten bacterial infections and even the plague may be coming."

Former CIA Director John Brennan, an outspoken critic of President Trump, acknowledged Tuesday that "there were mistakes made" in the highly controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application process during the Russia investigation as reported by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Appearing on MSNBC, Brennan was asked by host Chris Hayes about "abuses" uncovered by Horowitz, who claimed he found 17 significant errors in the renewed FISA applications into former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, while Horowitz was a member of the Obama administration. "Well clearly, there were mistakes made based on the inspector general's reports," Brennan responded.

General Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of false statements in the Mueller miasma. After pleading guilty to the charge on two separate occasions, Flynn retained new counsel, proclaimed his innocence, alleged prosecutorial misconduct, urged the court to hold the prosecutors in contempt, and sought dismissal of the case against him based on government misconduct. Having chosen to forego a motion to withdraw his guilty plea and to waive his rights in connection with his guilty plea(s), Flynn was up against it with his post-plea motions. In a 92-page memorandum opinion issued yesterday (embedded below), Judge Emmet Sullivan denied Flynn’s motions

It was a hashtag prosecution, a social-media campaign posing as a legal case: #ExxonKnew. And like yesterday’s media balloon become today’s litter, its deflated remains floated back down to earth last week in a New York courtroom. Whatever you think of them otherwise, ExxonMobil’s communications on climate change had neither the intent nor the effect of wronging the company’s investors. New York’s since-disgraced attorney general Eric Schneiderman had no business bringing a securities-fraud case on that basis, and there was nothing his successor, Letitia James, could have done to rescue the case.

The talking was endless: more than 70,000 hours were spent failing to define a “market instrument,” something that was meant to have been decided at last year’s conference in Katowice, Poland. Even though the Madrid conference ran over into the weekend, making it the longest ever, the issue will be kicked into next year’s talks, in Glasgow, Scotland. “I am disappointed,” United Nations secretary general António Guterres tweeted.

When repurchase agreement (repo) rates exploded in September and the Fed intervened in that market for the first time in more than a decade, interested parties cited corporate tax deadlines, regulations, and other minor reasons as the major factor. BIS Quarterly Review shines the light on the $23 trillion elephant in the room. “US repo markets currently rely heavily on four banks as marginal lenders,” the BIS Quarterly Review article by three economists explains.

As they prepare for their final battle against the galaxy’s forces of evil, the characters in The Rise of Skywalker remind each other several times that if this doesn’t work, everything that’s come before—everything they’ve fought for, everything they’ve been through—will all count for nothing. You could say the same of the movie itself. We can debate the importance of final chapters, whether they really have, or should have, the power to elevate or invalidate everything that came before them—and though the ninth episode in this generation-spanning story has been advertised with the promise that “The Saga Will End,” that’s a promise that has been made and broken before.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) launched the debate over the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Wednesday by comparing the Democrats’ struggle to remove him from office to the Battle of the Bulge against Nazi Germany in World War II. Described as “Hitler’s Last Gamble,” the battle began in December 1944, when the Nazis sent 200,000 troops into a surprise attack against American forces. Though the Americans prevailed, 100,000 were killed or wounded over two months of fighting. Pelosi drew an analogy between the impeachment debate and that battle, the largest ever fought by the U.S. Army:

But on Jan. 1, the Utah-based faith will deliver the latest blow to the struggling organization when it pulls out more than 400,000 young people and moves them into a new global program of its own. The change brings excitement and some melancholy for members of the faith and may push the Boy Scouts closer to the brink of bankruptcy as it faces a new wave of sex abuse lawsuits.

Meanwhile, the hearing went on as scheduled, led instead by Democratic Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin.
