O’Reilly Replacement Already on (Forced) Vacation

O’Reilly’s “frat boy” buddy Jesse Waters is already in “time out”, less than a week into supposedly replacing his mentor who was fired.

His sin? Using sexual innuendo, men’s locker room “humor” on Ivanka Trump.

World Class stupid.

Jesse Watters announces a surprise “vacation” after his Ivanka Trump quip

Déjà vu: Watters follows the path of his mentor, Bill O’Reilly, meaning we may never have to hear from him again

Fox News host Jesse Watters could not even make it a week in his new prime-time slot without offending his audience and colleagues. Watters announced that he is taking an abrupt vacation after his offhand comment about Ivanka Trump stirred a controversy.

“I’m going to be taking a vacation with my family, so I’m not going to be here tomorrow,” Watters said during Wednesday’s “The Five.” “I’ll be back on Monday, so don’t miss me too much.”

Last week, Watters scored a promotion to be a co-host on “The Five” after Fox News reshuffled its prime-time slate to accommodate O’Reilly’s departure. Watters had been a roving correspondent for “The O’Reilly Factor” and even hosted a spinoff show called “Watters World.”

Alas, Watters’ young, burgeoning career as a conservative pundit could be in danger. The last time a Fox News personality announced an unanticipated vacation, he never returned. On Tuesday, Watters made an inappropriate remark about the president’s daughter.

“It’s funny, you know, the left says they really respect women and then when given an opportunity to respect a women like that they boo and hiss,” Watters said. “So I don’t really get what’s going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone.”

Add to the List of Chumph’s Cadre Busted – Steve Bannon and “Seinfield”

Apparently the whole Steve Bannon – “Making millions from Seinfeld TV Show” schtick was a lie as well.

Bannon gets busted…Again.

BUSTED: There are no records of Steve Bannon making money off ‘Seinfeld’ and yadda yadda yadda

A key part of the mythos surrounding embattled White House adviser Stephen K. Bannon is that he makes millions of dollar in royalties from a savvy investment that included profit participation in the sitcom “Seinfeld,” but a New Yorker article about Bannon’s years in Hollywood is now casting doubt on that claim.

In an essay titled, “How Hollywood Remembers Steve Bannon,” journalist Connie Bruck dissects a number of Bannon’s key claims about his time in the movie industry and finds that most of them — including the “Seinfeld” story — don’t really hold up under scrutiny.

“Last November, when Bannon was named Donald Trump’s chief White House strategist, many articles highlighted an extraordinary fact about his Hollywood career: that he had negotiated a profit participation in ‘Seinfeld’ in 1993, two years before the show went into syndication,” said Bruck. “Forbes reported that, if Bannon had a one-per-cent share in the profits, ‘he would have made about $32.6 million since 1998,’ and went on to say that ‘Bannon’s steady “Seinfeld” income’ was supporting his career as a conservative propagandist.”

The factoid first surfaced in a 2015 Bloomberg Businessweek profile of Bannon. According to Bannon, Westinghouse Electric hired his firm to sell the corporation’s small share in an entertainment company called Castle Rock.

Media mogul and CNN founder Ted Turner was interested in buying all of Castle Rock including minority shareholders. Bannon said he advised Westinghouse to take the offer. The company’s representatives reportedly told Bannon that if the deal was so great, he should put up some of his own cash for the properties in the Castle Rock portfolio. One of them was “Seinfeld.”

“Some of those who were responsible for ‘Seinfeld’ became agitated by Bannon’s story,” wrote Bruck. “Larry David, the show’s head writer and executive producer, told me, ‘I don’t think I ever heard of him until he surfaced with the Trump campaign and I had no idea that he was profiting from the work of industrious Jews!’”

However, when Bruck scrutinized the deal — which Bannon and Co. reportedly came away from with a small portion of Castle Rock’s TV package — and followed it through a series of acquisitions and mergers until she found that after 1995, Warner Bros. acquired “Seinfeld” and began to send out regular profit participation statements.

“The Castle Rock and the Westinghouse records from the early months of syndication are not readily available,” wrote Brock. “It is possible that Bannon’s deal was capped and paid out at that time. But, since then, neither CBS nor Castle Rock nor Warner Bros. has records of payments to Bannon, if those records are as they were described to me.”

Got a little Blue Eyed Soul just for Steve…Not sure how the dancing girl in a skimpy bikini made it past the TV censors in 1965, but here goes.

Lowest Approval Rating in History – Welcome to the “Ghetto”, Chumph

Even folks who voted for him are learning to hate him…

Donald Trump is historically unpopular as he reaches the 100-day mark

He is the first president since modern polling began to fall below 50 percent at this point in his presidency

Less than two weeks after a Gallup survey discovered a 17-point drop in the number of Americans who believe President Donald Trump keeps his promises, a new poll reveals that Trump has the lowest approval rating of any president at their 100-day mark since the start of the survey.

Only 44 percent of Americans approve of how Trump is handling the presidency at this point in his administration, compared to 54 percent who disapprove, according to a recent poll by CNN/ORC.  This puts him at the bottom of the list of 12 presidents (himself included). The next lowest, Bill Clinton, had a 55 percent approval rating at this point in his administration.

Although there is a sharp partisan divide in voters’ perceptions of Trump — 85 percent of Republicans approve of him, compared to only 8 percent of Democrats — there is bad news for Trump even within his own party. While 82 percent of Republicans had a lot of confidence in Trump’s ability to handle the economy, that number has fallen to 72 percent now. Similarly, Trump has experienced a 13 point drop in Republicans who believe he will appoint the best people to office, a 9 point drop among Republicans who are confident in his leadership skills, a 13 point drop in Republicans who believe he can unite the country, an 8 point drop in Republicans who believe he will effectively manage the government, and a 10 point drop in Republicans who think he cares about people like themselves.

A recent Fox News Poll contains similarly inauspicious findings for the president. It puts Trump’s approval rating at 45 percent, well below the marks attained by Barack Obama (62 percent) and George W. Bush (63 percent) at this point in their presidencies. Perhaps most strikingly, only 36 percent of voters say they would want to re-elect Trump, compared to 55 percent who would not — of whom 47 percent say they would “definitely” vote for someone else. Even among people who voted for Trump in 2016, only 49 percent said they would definitely vote to reelect him in 2020. By contrast, Barack Obama had 64 percent support among his own voters from 2008 at this point in his administration (his overall reelection number was 52 percent).

Oh yeah…

Former Chumph NSC Adviser Flynn Now Under Investigation By Pentagon

Every day, another layer of dirt on Putin’s Bitch’s boys taking bribes from Russia.

Elijah Cummings just released new docs that destroy Mike Flynn’s defense for taking foreign cash

Newly released documents reveal that the Department of Defense warned former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn against taking money from foreign governments — but nevertheless, he persisted.

CNN reports that the new documents show Flynn was warned by the Defense Intelligence Agency to not accept cash from foreign governments in 2014 as he entered retirement. Flynn nonetheless took money from both the Russian and Turkish governments for paid speeches and for lobbying work, respectively.

“These documents raise grave questions about why General Flynn concealed the payments he received from foreign sources after he was warned explicitly by the Pentagon,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who released the documents on Thursday. “Our next step is to get the documents we are seeking from the White House so we can complete our investigation. I thank the Department of Defense for providing us with unclassified versions of these documents.”

In a press statement on the documents, Cummings also noted that the newly revealed DIA letter “counters the suggestion by Flynn’s attorney on Tuesday that Flynn followed appropriate procedures for accepting foreign funds for his trip to Moscow.”

Both Cummings and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) this week said that it appeared that Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, might have committed a felony by not disclosing payments he received from foreign governments before he assumed the role of national security adviser.

What’s that thing Stevie Wonder sang?

“So, it’s gettin’ ready to blow
It’s gettin’ ready to show
Somebody shot off at the mouth and
We’re gettin’ ready to know

It’s gettin’ ready to drop
It’s gettin’ ready to shock
Somebody done turned up the heater
An’a it’s gettin’ ready to pop”

Cop in Grand Rapids Pulls Gun on Teens Walking In Front of Their Homes

There really was no justifiable reason to do this. In Grand Rapids, 5 black teens are accosted at gunpoint by a Police Officer, supposedly looking for an armed black male. There are a lot of ways the Cop could have approached this issue without drawing a firearm. Especially since it seems he had substantial backup less than 10 seconds away.

This Cop just cemented any suspicion in these kids minds, that the Police are armed thugs instead of community protectors.

Hat Tip to “The Advise Show” on this one. Advise is a YouTube Channel out of Houston, with interesting content.

‘Stop crying, bro! They gonna think we did something!’: Unarmed black teens sob as cop holds them at gunpoint

Last month, officers in Grand Rapids, Michigan were responding to a call about an armed suspect when they pulled their gun on five teenagers minding their own business.

The body cam video posted by BuzzFeed revealed sobbing teens forced to lay on the ground as the officer pointed his gun at them.

“Guys, get on the ground. Keep your hands out,” a Grand Rapids police officer tells a group of youths in the video. “Just follow our directions and we’ll be all right, OK?”

The teens are seen raising their hands before laying on the sidewalk.

“Stop crying, bro! They gonna think we did something!” one of the boy’s friends can be heard saying.

Chumph to Destroy National Monuments…And Yogi the Bear

If you haven’t see some of the incredibly beautiful places in this country protected as National Monuments by the last 16 Presidents – You better take a long vacation this summer, as the Chumph is about to sell them off to be strip mined and drilled for oil.

What an unconscionable Piece of Shit this cretin is.

Trump to order review of national monuments

President Donald Trump is set to order the review of tens of millions of acres of land and water set aside as national monuments by the past three presidents on Wednesday, a move that environmental groups warn will undermine a crucial conservation tool and open up sensitive areas to fossil fuel development.

The review will be conducted by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and will encompass the dozens of monuments created over the past 21 years, although the main focus will be on President Barack Obama’s designation last year of Bears Ears National monument, as well as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument protected by President Bill Clinton in 1996. Both of those are in Utah, and the state’s lawmakers have pressed to revoke the monument status for the two sites, which are believed to hold fossil fuel resources.

But Zinke sought to quell concerns that the executive order would roll back conservation protections provided by 1906 Antiquities Act, saying the Trump’s order “does not strip any monument … or loosen any environmental conservation on any land or marine areas.”

Yet environmental groups fear the review is a simply a pretense to unwind the federal protections in the future, since both Trump and Zinke have supported growing U.S. fossil fuel output.

The Antiquities Act is “one of our country’s kind of bedrock conservation laws,” said Daniel Ritzman, Sierra Club western public lands protection campaign director.

Sixteen different presidents have used the law “to protect some of our country’s most special places. You know places like the Grand Canyon [National Park] started out out as a national monument,” he said. “And it’s not just our important landscapes that have been protected, it’s also used to protect some unique American cultural sites, especially Native American cultural sites.”

Presidents have also used the law to block off areas from fossil-fuel development, such as coal mining at Grand Staircase, but environmental and conservation groups worry those protections will be tossed aside as Trump looks for additional ways to unleash energy development on public lands and waters.

“This administration has made it clear that they’re going to do the bidding of the oil and gas industry,” said Jennifer Rokala, executive director of the Center for Western Priorities, a Colorado-based conservation group.

The order gives Zinke 45 days to file an interim recommendations, and 120 days to issue suggestions for legislation or for Trump to revoke or slim down the size of any monuments that cover 100,000 acres or more that were created under the Antiquities Act.

The order does not make any assertions as to the scope of Trump’s authority to revoke monuments, Zinke said and he reiterated his belief that presidents can revise the scope of monument designations, though that the broader authority to delist monuments remains untested in courts.

While presidents have tweaked the size of their predecessor’s monument designations — President Dwight D. Eisenhower, for example, reduced Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes National Monument by 25 percent — none have fully revoked the status for existing monuments entirely. Environmental groups and tribal officials say they stand ready to sue over any attempts by Trump to change the footprint or eliminate existing monuments.
