Really finny watching this. “How many of Trumps Campaign and Administration have to be taken down before you realize there is something is wrong?”

While the typical Faux News scum try and roll out every excuse and diversion in the book.

Faux News, Stuck On the Tracks and Seeing the Train Coming – Cleans House

It is becoming fairly obvious, even in the tainted halls of the white-right and racist Fox News, that there is a train wreck looming on the near horizon. And it is a lot bigger than just the normal left-right trash talk and fighting for political position. This explosion is based on treason to the state America. And when it goes off, there is going to be a lot of shrapnel shredding the reputations of organizations, and flaying careers. Faux News has spent much of the past 20 years shilling racism, anti-immigrant, and anti-government rhetoric – convincing the aged white base that if only the white right could win, their white privilege would be protected and fully restored.

The question now becomes to what, and whom did they sell their souls to make that a reality.

And the rats have started deserting the ship…Or at least in this case, being thrown overboard with a rock tied around it’s neck.

Fox News boots Judge Napolitano off the air for pushing Obama wiretap claims

Fox News pulled senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano off the air indefinitely following growing controversy over his dubious claim that Barack Obama used the British intelligence services to wiretap Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election, the LA Times reports.

Napolitano made the claim last Tuesday, in an interview with “Fox and Friends.”

“Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command,” Napolitano said. “He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI and he didn’t use the Department of Justice. He used GCHQ [Government Communications Headquarters].”

A spokesman for the GCHQ immediately rejected Napolitano’s claim, but that didn’t stop White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer from citing the judge last Thursday at a press conference. Trump similarly repeated the claim Friday at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“You shouldn’t be talking to me; you should be talking to Fox News,” Trump said when asked about those unsubstantiated claims

Fox News host Shep Smith refused to let Trump deflect blame for citing Napolitano’s comments, telling his audience on Friday, “Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now-president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way.”

On Sunday’s “MediaBuzz,” Napolitano stood by his comments, insisting he “reported what the sources told me, reported it accurately and I do believe the substance of what they told me.”

Sources with knowledge of the decision too the LA Times Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News in the near future.

Russia knows what is coming, and is desperately eliminating the evidence –

Brietbart “Wiretapping” Author Admits He Lied and Has No Proof

Mark Levin, the Brietbart writer who came up with the “Obama wiretapping the Chump”  hallucination appeared on Faux News yesterday. Surrounded by no less than 3 Faux news talking head  racist blow-monkeys having serial orgasms over the thought of some evidence, no matter how diaphanous against Obama, while sucking on the wee-wiener of conservative victimization…

Levin admits he made the whole thing up.

  1. He has no evidence that Obama ordered anything.
  2. The only evidence he has is of two, completely legal requests by the FBI through the FISA Court to wiretap the Trump Campaign offices…Which require the FBI to provide evidence of criminal activity. The second of those in October was approved.
  3. He has no evidence said wiretaps were actually carried out.
  4. He has no information on why a FISA Judge would grant a wiretap in this case, or…
  5. What criminal activity the FBI may have been investigating.

He does do a lot of whining though about conservative victimization.

Faux News Busted…Again! Uses Nazi as “Expert” on Sweden

For Faux News, who best to comment on brown immigrant violence? A fellow neo-Nazi white supremacist!

Busted again: Fox caught using ‘militant Nazi’ collaborator as expert on Swedish violence

Fox Business Network reportedly used a neo-Nazi collaborator to bolster President Donald Trump’s suggestion that Sweden was experiencing an uptick in violence due to Muslim immigrants.

Just days after Fox News host Bill O’Reilly admitted that his show falsely billed Nils Bildt as a Swedish national security adviser, the Swedish magazine Expo has uncovered a guest on the Fox Business Network who may be even more troubling.

On Feb. 21, Fox Business host Cheryl Casone asked “Swedish columnist Ingrid Carlqvist” to push back on the president’s critics without mentioning her guest’s right-wing extremist views or ties to the Swedish neo-Nazi movement, according to Expo.

“What the viewers are never told is that Ingrid Carlqvist has been a central player in the anti-Muslim counter-jihad movement,” the magazine reports on Thursday. “Nor are the viewers made aware that she recently accused ‘representatives of the ethnic group of Jews’ in Sweden of being behind Sweden’s cultural diversity, a conspiracy theory that Swedish nazis have long promoted.”

The report continues:

In recent years, Ingrid Carlqvist has moved closer to the openly racist, white supremacist milieu in Sweden. She recently declared her willingness to collaborate with the Nordic Resistance Movement, a militant nazi group.

Last year she was one of the speakers at Stockholm’s annual fascist conference “Identitarian Ideas”. She also attended this year’s conference, where a new alliance between the organizers and the American Alt-Right movement and Richard Spencer of the National Policy Institute was announced. Spencer gained international notoriety after giving a speech in praise of Donald Trump in which he yelled “Hail Trump!”, while large sections of the audience stretched out their right arms in a Hitler salute

And Your Network Too! Faux News Becomes Accountable

In the beginning, there was supposed to be a separation between Fox Local News and the Fox Cable News networks. And that worked well for a number of years as the local over the air news channels became some of the best in the business – while the cable operation perused right wing and racist propaganda.

The line between the two has become increasingly diaphanous, increasingly with material from the Fox News organization going over to the Fox Propaganda organization on cable.

The result of that is increasing suspicion and disrespect for the News organization, as it is increasingly seen as an arm of the same monster.

Case in point –

I expect things will be getting increasingly hostile and dangerous for Fox News crews.

Hannity Gets Caught Trying to “Blackwash” Terrance Crutcher

The very first thing Faux News does in a police shooting is attempt to dirty up the victim with a long list of often fabricated Police records. Her Hannity gets caught in his racist lies…

http://mediamatters.org/video/2016/09/21/listen-reporter-correct-sean-hannitys-attempt-smear-police-shooting-victim-terrence-crutcher/213246

Listen To A Reporter Correct Sean Hannity’s Attempt To Smear Police Shooting Victim Terence Crutcher

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): On the other hand, I understand that in this particular case Mr Crutcher has a long criminal history and appeared to be under the influence or so the police are charging.
RUSSELL MILLS: Well I’ll tell you I looked up his history and I’m not seeing a lot of criminal history. We have something called the OSCN – the Oklahoma Supreme Court Network. I was able to find a protective order from 12 years ago that was dismissed. I found a couple of financial things. There’s no violent criminal history for Mr. Crutcher that I’ve been able to uncover.
HANNITY: How many warrants, how many warrants were out for his arrest?
MILLS: None.
HANNITY: Well I read that there was numerous warrants out for his arrest including one assault on an officer and drug trafficking. Are those reports incorrect?
MILLS: As far as I know they are. I have not seen any reporting on any warrants for Mr Crutcher and I certainly haven’t uncovered any myself. There has been some misinformation floated.

Fox News host Sean Hannity tried to claim on Wednesday that Terence Crutcher had “several outstanding warrants” during an interview with KRMG-TV news anchor Russell Mills.

Audio posted by Media Matters captures Hannity saying during his radio show, “I understand that in this particular case Mr Crutcher has a long criminal history and appeared to be under the influence or so the police are charging.”

“I looked up his history and I’m not seeing a lot of criminal history. We have something called the OSCN – the Oklahoma Supreme Court Network,” Mills replied. “I was able to find a protective order from 12 years ago that was dismissed. I found a couple of financial things. There’s no violent criminal history for Mr. Crutcher that I’ve been able to uncover.”

Police in Tulsa, Oklahoma said that they found PCP inside Crutcher’s car after Officer Betty Shelby shot and killed him late last week. His family’s attorney, Benjamin Crump,responded by scolding officials, saying, “Don’t put out stuff that would demonize him and try to make him look like as if he was doing something nefarious. Put the entire story up.”

The Chicago Tribune reported that, while Crutcher was in prison between 2007 and 2011 for drug trafficking, his only arrest for any weapons-related charges came in 1995, when he pleaded no contest to carrying a .25-caliber handgun and resisting an officer.

But on Wednesday, Hannity went from citing unidentified reports to saying he had “a source” within the department.

“How many warrants were out for [Crutcher’s] arrest?” he asked Mills.

“None,” Mills replied.

“I read that there was numerous warrants out for his arrest including one assault on an officer and drug trafficking,” Hannity said. “Are those reports incorrect?”

“As far as I know they are,” said Mills. “I have not seen any reporting on any warrants for Mr Crutcher and I certainly haven’t uncovered any myself. There has been some misinformation floated. I’ll tell you, we had a homicide detective say yesterday that they found some drugs in the car. That may or may not be the case.”

“Our source said as much there too — that they were found in his possession,” Hannity responded, cutting Mills off. “Again, we have a source within the department that has given us some information, so I guess it’s a matter of time of when they’re gonna release this information.”

The “Cops” on Faux (and Backing the Chumph) – Many Have Ethical or Criminal Histories

As I have noted before, a lot of the “cops” who appear on Faux News and other right wing media – themselves have criminal histories.

Paul Babeu, David Clarke and Joe Arpaio on police ta

David Clarke has been accused of covering up a deputy’s misdeeds while Joe Arpaio has been called ‘unrepentantly lawless’. Meet the prominent officers who want the businessman in the Oval Office

As chairman of Donald Trump’s “Florida law enforcement coalition” and one of the Trump campaign’s official pilots, Vincent Caldara is doubly devoted to the Republican presidential nominee and his pledge to crack down on criminality.

A former police officer in New York and Miami, Caldara told supporters at a recent gathering in Florida that he had been flying vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence “from coast to coast to make sure we get the law and order message out to every single person that will be voting on November 8th”.

Caldara is simultaneously fighting claims that he is a lawbreaker himself.

The 55-year-old pilot is charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, after he allegedly drove a vehicle at another person repeatedly in Pompano Beach in July last year. According to court records, the victim, whose name is withheld, was treated in hospital for leg and back injuries. Caldara has pleaded not guilty.

In a separate case, Caldara is accused of severely injuring a woman in June 2014 by recklessly driving into her with his Harley Davidson motorcycle in Fort Lauderdale. The woman is suing Caldara and seeking a jury trial. According to court records, officials have been unable to find Caldara to serve him with a summons.

Caldara and spokespeople for Trump’s campaign did not respond to several requests for comment.

The accusations of wrongdoing against Caldara are only the latest in an eclectic series of claims leveled at law enforcement figures who have publicly endorsed Trump’s campaign for the White House.

Amid a spike in crime in some US cities, Trump on Friday received the endorsement of the national Fraternal Order of Police union, whose president, Chuck Canterbury, said: “Our members believe he will make America safe again”.

But dark spots on the records of some of Trump’s most prominent police backers challenge the credibility of his claim to be the “law and order candidate”. In July, a coalition of dozens of police chiefs and prosecutors pleaded with the Republican nominee to abandon his draconian ideas and embrace contemporary policing theory and criminal justice reform.

Here, the Guardian reviews some of the allegations made against a half-dozen lawmen who have lent their support to Trump’s presidential campaign:

David Clarke

Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, has been Trump’s most visible ally among serving police. Although a registered Democrat, Clarke, 60, accused Hillary Clinton’s campaign of “embracing criminality” after mothers of African Americans killed by police appeared onstage at the Democratic National Convention.

Clarke.

But Clarke has been accused of violating rules and regulations himself since being elected in 2002. After one of his deputies broke a woman’s neck by crashing his vehicle into her car, Clarke was alleged to have overseen an attempted cover-up that involved framing the woman for drunk driving.

The victim, Tanya Weyker, sued Clarke, several deputies and county authorities in state and federal court in 2014 for compensation and civil rights violations. She said Clarke and his officers continued pursuing charges against her for months even after they knew video evidence showed the officer was at fault.

“Clarke was personally involved in the conspiracy to continue with the baseless prosecution of [Weyker],” the federal lawsuit said, “or, at the very least, was deliberately and recklessly indifferent to his subordinates’ unconstitutional actions and related misconduct.” Clarke and the officers denied the allegations.

An attorney for Weyker, Drew DeVinney, said Weyker settled her state lawsuit for the state-capped maximum $250,000 in compensation, and then settled the federal lawsuit for more than $95,000 for civil rights violations and attorneys’ fees.

Clarke has also come under criticism from within his own ranks. In 2010, deputy Richard Graber, a senior official in the Milwaukee deputies’ union, alleged that Clarke aggressively confronted him, called him a “sick fuck” and threatened to “come after him” for questioning an order that deputies must work mandatory overtime after the high-profile death of a local child.

“Clarke’s profanity-ridden rant included yelling, pointing, and calling Graber ‘waste,’ an ‘organizational terrorist,’ a ‘fucker,’ and a ‘cancer to the agency’,” according to an appeals court filing. Clarke denied most of Graber’s account of their confrontation. A federal appeals court said Clarke’s behavior amounted to an “adverse employment action” but rejected an allegation from Graber that the mistreatment was because of his union activity.

Inspector Edward Bailey, a spokesman for Clarke, declined to comment. “This county office does not involve itself in the current presidential race in any capacity,” he said in an email.

Paul Babeu

Sheriff Paul Babeu of Pinal County, Arizona, enthusiastically supports Trump’s anti-immigration stance and campaign pledge to build a wall along the US border with Mexico. Babeu is also running as a Republican for a seat in the US House of Representatives and has made border security a key plank of his campaign.

Babeu promises voters on his website that he will tackle the “hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants pouring across our southern borders”, warning that at present, “possible terrorists with military training, deliberate plans and lots of money can cross the border”.

In 2012, Jose Orozco, a Mexican man and ex-boyfriend of Babeu who worked for the sheriff’s election campaign, alleged that he was threatened with deportation by an aide to Babeu when he refused to sign an agreement not to publicly disclose the relationship. Orozco’s attorney said she was told Orozco’s US visa had expired, making him undocumented. Babeu denied Orozco’s allegations. An inquiry by the Arizona attorney general concluded that he committed no criminal violation.

Babeu.

Babeu has also faced allegations made public by his sisterthat as headmaster and executive director of a boarding school for troubled teenagers in Massachusetts, he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student. Babeu, who led the controversial DeSisto School in West Stockbridge between 1999 and 2001, responded by publishing his sister’s mental health history.

The former student, Joshua Geyer, has not disputed that he had a relationship with Babeu, but insisted that it was not “inappropriate”. This week, a spokesman for Babeu sent the Guardian a letter purportedly from Geyer that said he and Babeu had no sexual relationship at all. Asked twice whether Babeu himself denied that the relationship took place, the spokesman did not respond.

State authorities pursued DeSisto for operating illegally without a state license. Over the years, the school became notorious for its severe punishment system, and was investigated repeatedly for allegations of abuse and mistreatment of students. It has since closed.

The Babeu spokesman, Barrett Marson, said in an email: “Paul was in charge of the business operations at the school. He never had any control over student discipline or instruction. He was in charge of ensuring there was food and bathroom supplies and things like that. But Paul was never investigated nor had any knowledge of any alleged abuse at the school while he was employed there.”…More Here
