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 –

Majority of Americans Want Sessions Head on a Pike

Republicans will always come to the support of traitors and bigots.

Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire!

Majority of Americans want Attorney General Sessions to resign for lying under oath

New poll finds that more than half of all U.S. voters believe Sessions lied under oath at his confirmation hearing

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has served as a controversial national figure since President Donald Trump nominated the former Republican Alabama senator to serve as the nation’s top cop. Now, less than four weeks since assuming office, a majority of Americans already want Sessions out.

According to a majority of voters polled in a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday, Sessions lied under oath during his confirmation hearing about his contact with the Russians while serving as an emissary for the Trump campaign and should resign. Reports emerged earlier this year that top aides and allies to Trump’s 2016 campaign were in constant contact with senior Russian intelligence officials before election day.

Unsurprisingly, that number breaks mostly along partisan lines. More than eight in 10 Democrats said the attorney general should resign, while only 11 percent of Republicans said Sessions should step down. Additionally, 43 percent of American voters already had an unfavorable opinion of Sessions’ job performance. The poll of 1,123 American voters took place from March 2 to March 6, and has a margin-of-error of +/- 2.7 percent.

Pollsters also found more than half of those surveyed believe Sessions lied about speaking with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak at his January hearing. According to the poll, 52 percent of voters believe Sessions committed perjury when he said he “did not have communications with the Russians” during his Senate confirmation hearings.

In January, Sessions was under oath when he told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he had not been in contact with any Russian official. However, as reports from the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal at the beginning of this month revealed, Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak met twice ― once at a Heritage Foundation event in July, and another time in Sessions’ Senate office in September― while Session served in a senior surrogate role for the Trump campaign and now the attorney general is being probed by federal investigators for those communications.

“The gavel comes down hard on Attorney General Jeff Sessions,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.  “He lied and he should quit because of it, say Americans, who are clearly very concerned about the Russian affair and all the administration personnel involved with it.”

A majority of Americans voters are expressing a sentiment that only one U.S. senator has dared to utter, so far.

“Listen, I’ve been cutting him a lot of slack. I’ve been refusing to say that he lied,” Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken told CNN‘s Jake Tapper on Tuesday. It was a question asked by Franken at Sessions’ confirmation hearing that got the loyal Trump supporter tripped up. Even as he recused himself from any Department of Justice investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, Sessions insisted that he had not lied when he told Franken that he “did not have communications with the Russians:”

SEN. FRANKEN: If there is any evidence that anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign, what will you do?

SEN. SESSIONS: Senator Franken, I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign, and I did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment.

Thirty-four percent of voters said Sessions did something illegal by making that claim, and 29 percent said his testimony was unethical but not illegal.

Following his recusal, Sessions followed-up with a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday insisting his statements were correct all along and that he would not return for any additional testimony.

“I wanted to wait for this letter to come out. It’s hard to come to any other conclusion that he just perjured himself,” Franken said, accusing Session of committing a crime in order to be confirmed as the nation’s top prosecutor:

Stacy Who? Gets Booted From Fox News

After dredging the sewers for Uncle Toms during the run up to the “election”, apparently Faux News has decided to do a Lawn Jockey reduction. First to be disappeared…Stacy Who? Dash. Employment opportunities are looking dimmer than midnight for the next 4 years.

Omarosa better look out too – because if she doesn’t get a job serving coffee in one of those short Maid’s outfits in the Whites Only House… She is next.

Twitter lights up as Stacey Dash is cut from the Fox News lineup

Stacey Dash may continue speaking her mind on politics and the news of the day, but it won’t be for Fox News.

Fox News has decided not to renew Dash’s contract, The Hill reported on Saturday. The network, which recently announced the hire of former U.K. Independence Party head Nigel Farage (“Mr. Brexit,” to Donald Trump), also terminated the contracts of columnist George Will, who left the Republican Party in June, Republican strategist Ed Rollins, journalist Martin Kalb and columnist and radio commentator Cal Thomas.

Dash, the conservative-leaning actress and alumna of Paramus High School most widely known for her role in the 1995 film “Clueless” opposite Alicia Silverstone, joined Fox News as a contributor in 2014. During that time, Dash, who appeared on various Fox programs including “Outnumbered,” often drew the ire of social media. She was criticized for her controversial statements about the Oscars (she rejected a boycott of the ceremony due to lack of diversity in the nominees and later appeared in a Oscars bit as the new director of a minority outreach program, Black History Month (she doesn’t think it should exist) and BET (she doesn’t think it should exist, either).

In 2015, Fox suspended Dash after she used profanity in criticizing an address President Barack Obama delivered in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting. In 2016, Dash suggested that transgender people should go to the bathroom “in the bushes” rather than use bathrooms corresponding to their gender.

Dash’s memoir, “There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative,” addressed the advent of her relationship with Fox, which arrived at a good time for her, after she endorsed Mitt Romney for president in 2012 with a highly scrutinized tweet. (Dash said she had voted for Obama in 2008.)

“On the day that I spent my very last dollar,” she wrote, “the Fox check came.”

The Daily Racist Trumpazoids Who Let Their Racism…Get Their Ass Fired

It isn’t officially the Chumph Reich quite yet…

Racism does indeed make you STUPID.

Official Who Called Michelle Obama ‘Ape In Heels’ Won’t Keep Job After All

The nonprofit she formerly led will now be overseen by another state agency.

A West Virginia official who called first lady Michelle Obama an “ape in heels” in a widely shared Facebook post has been permanently removed from her position.

Pamela Ramsey Taylor will not continue as director of the Clay County Development Corporation, a state- and federally funded nonprofit, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s office confirmed Tuesday morning.

“Following the state’s request for specific assurances that the CCDC is following anti-discrimination policies, we have been assured that Pamela Taylor has been removed from her position as CCDC director,” Tomblin’s communications director Jessica Tice said in a statement to The Huffington Post.

Keep ‘your fat mouth shut’: Trump-backing school principal under fire for attacking Texas cuffed-mom

A Dallas charter school principal, who proudly calls herself on of Donald Trump’s “deplorables,” is under fire for attacking a Fort Worth mom who was cuffed by local cop after reporting a white man had assaulted her son.

In a video that went viral this week, Jacqueline Craig and her daughter were seen being apprehended and hauled off to jail  by a white Fort Worth cop after the officer spoke with the man accused of attacking her son. While the police officer’s actions have been widely criticized, Lana Sprayberry, principal of Inspired Vision Academy Elementary School in Dallas had a different take that has landed her in hot water.

According to The Root, Sprayberry took to her Facebook page to lambaste Craig, telling her she should have kept her “fat mouth shut.”

“Stop trying to act innocent,” Sprayberry wrote. “If you had kept your fat mouth shut the cop would not have had a reason to cuff! I wouldn’t blame every cop to walk off their job in protest!!! Lord help us!!!”

Sprayberry has since deleted the post but not before it was screen-captured by attorney Lee Merritt, who is representing the Craig family, and was forwarded to A+Charter Schools, Inc. which oversees Inspired Vision Academy.

A+Charter issued a response on their own Facebook page, saying: “We are aware of a Facebook comment made by one of our A+ Charter Schools, Inc. employees. While we are unable to comment on this personnel issue, we can share that we are taking this very seriously, and are further investigating the situation.”

Racism Makes You Stupid: Datapoint – Trumpazoid Jackass # 2,322,001, Bank VP Fired

On the subject of “poor career decisions”. Some of the Trumpazoids apparently believe the “White Reich” is already here. Leading to some really, really stupid career ending decisions.

Alabama bank VP canned over racist Facebook post bragging Trump could ‘buy and sell’ Obamas

June Pridmore (Facebook)

Racist Trump Jackass of the Week…Now Unemployed

An Alabama woman lost her job after her bigoted, inaccurate and grossly misspelled Facebook rant earned her the title of “racist of the week.”

June Pridmore, a senior-level employee with Regions Bank, welcomed the election of Donald Trump in a social media post that alluded to slavery and suggested President Barack Obama was Muslim, reported AL.com.

“I voted him in,” Pridmore wrote. “I like him. He has a beautiful wife unlike the ugly and embarrassing woman (for lack of a better word), in the White House now. Ms. Trump’s face would make Michele (sic) O’Bama (sic) a Sunday face.”

“I’m certainly glad [Trump] he has a lot of money because she he (sic) won’t be bought out like Barack (sic), socialist Muslim O’Bama (sic) or his wife or all those host of relatives they have in the whitehouse (sic) for US to support.”

Pridmore inaccurately claimed the Obama family had flown their dog to vacations in a separate plane and invited several relatives to live with them at taxpayer expense.

“If any idiot out there thinks that is justified, you deserved him as president,” Pridmore wrote. “I prefer a man who can buy Michele (sic) and Barack and sell them several times over.”

The post was widely shared on Facebook, under the label “racist of the week,” and Pridmore’s employer launched an investigation — which resulted in her termination.

“We appreciate the concerns shared about offensive social media comments that were made through an associate’s personal Facebook account,” said Jeremy King, a spokesman for the bank. “We want you to know that we share those concerns. Those comments do not reflect our values as a company or the way we do business. The associate is no longer an employee of the company.”

The spokesman said Pridmore, whose LinkedIn profile showed she had served as senior vice president of loan operations since 2008, was not in a position where she could approve or deny loans.

Pridmore has deleted her social media profiles since her racist post cost her job.

Trump America – Georgia Cops Brag About Harassing Black Drivers

And yet another data point in that Chumph America…

Georgia deputies bragged about targeting black drivers – and that’s just ‘the tip of the iceberg’

Brant Gaither (MySpace)

A Georgia sheriff’s deputy was fired and another abruptly resigned after an investigation revealed their racist and sexist Facebook messages — which showed they apparently targeted black drivers for traffic stops.

The two deputies, identified as Brant Gaither and Jeremy Owens, served on a special traffic unit on the McIntosh County Sheriff’s Department, where they patrolled Interstate 95 between Savannah and Brunswick, reported the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Their Facebook messages showed the deputies mocking the most famous speech by Martin Luther King Jr.

“I have a dream. That one day my people will not act like animals,” Gaither posted, while Owens replied, “Lol. That’ll never happen.”

At least one post suggested they racially profiled black drivers, whom they referred to using racial slurs: “It’s supposed to rain tomorrow,” Owens wrote. “Might not get too many niggs.”

They also joked about a pregnancy test involving fried chicken and mocked victims of domestic violence, the newspaper reported.

The Southern Center for Human Rights sent a lawyer last week to McIntosh County, where they interviewed residents and witnesses who might have interacted with the deputies or have other information about policing practices by the sheriff’s department.

Their investigation “suggests this may be the tip of the iceberg,” said an attorney with the civil rights group.

Gaither was fired July 25, and Owens resigned the following day.

The racist messages were discovered when another deputy was issued Owens’ old computer, which was still linked to his Facebook account.

The deputy showed the communications to Sheriff Stephen Jessup, who said the posts made him “want to throw up.”

Jessup moved quickly to get rid of the deputies, saying their conduct was unacceptable.

“There is no joke about something like that — period,” Jessup told the newspaper. “It’s total racism.”

Prosecutors said some of the cases involving the pair, who worked together until December, could be dismissed, and the sheriff supports that decision.

Owens, who now works as a police officer in Darien, declined to comment, but Gaither insisted just before he was fired that the posts weren’t serious — and that they weren’t isolated incidents.

“It was just a joke, we all do it,” Gaither said, according to an internal investigation.

Gaither was unable to provide any credible evidence that other deputies engaged in similar behavior, according to the internal investigation.

McIntosh County is the setting for the 1991 nonfiction book, “Praying for Sheetrock,” by Melissa Fay Greene, who tells the story of a notorious white sheriff who harassed black residents into the 1970s.

Jessup is facing a re-election challenge from Charles Jones, the black former sheriff he defeated in 2008.

Cook County Attorney Who Fixed Laquan McDonald Case Thrown Out By Voters

Even the voters in Cook County figured out she was dirty…

Crooked AG for Cook County…Gone!

BOOM! Attorney who bungled Laquan McDonald case loses re-election bid

After criticism for alleged mishandling the shooting death of Laquan McDonald Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez went down in her election Tuesday night. McDonald was the 17-year-old Chicago boy who was shot 16 times as he walked away from officers with a 3-inch knife. The video footage of his death was withheld while Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel ran for reelection. Alvarez too was seen responsible after waiting 13 months before filing charges against Officer Jason Van Dyke who shot McDonald.

Alvarez was also blamed for declining to file charges against officers who fatally shot a total of 68 people in the last seven years.

Alvarez’s opponent Kim Foxx had nearly 58 percent of the vote to Alvarez’s 29 percent before Alvarez conceded the race at 9 p.m. CDT.

“We are obviously very disappointed,” campaign manager Mike Carson said according to DNAInfo. “This was a hard-fought campaign.”

Opponents to Alvarez started a Twitter the hashtag #ByeAnita demanding she resign from the post. The movement was led by young black activists who used the direct action in the Black Lives Matter movement for the election. The group didn’t endorse an opponent, and they were just in opposition to Alvarez, spending a mere $1,000.

“I have been criticized that I wasn’t a very good politician and that’s probably right,” Alvarez said, “and that’s probably why I stand before you tonight.”

“Not a good politician”? How about a lousy human being.
