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.
He has no evidence that Obama ordered anything.
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.
He has no evidence said wiretaps were actually carried out.
He has no information on why a FISA Judge would grant a wiretap in this case, or…
What criminal activity the FBI may have been investigating.
He does do a lot of whining though about conservative victimization.
Reporter Emily Austen has been taken off the air by Fox Sports after she was caught on video making racist comments about Mexican, Jewish and Chinese people.
While participating in a Facebook video broadcast for Barstool Sports, the 27-year-old sports reporter and others appearing on the show mocked 18-year-old Mayte Lara Ibarra, who recently revealed that she was her high school’s valedictorian and an undocumented immigrant.
“I didn’t even know Mexicans were that smart,” Austen quipped to her co-hosts during the Barstool Sports broadcast.
She also asserted that “the Chinese guy is always the smartest guy in math class” and that Jewish people are “stingy.”
As a result of the tirade, Fox Sports said that Austen, who is a contract employee, would not be participating in future broadcasts.
“We were made aware that Emily Austen appeared in a social media video unaffiliated with Fox Sports in which she made insensitive and derogatory comments,” Fox Sports Florida General Manager Steve Tello said in a statement. “She was not speaking on behalf of Fox Sports, nor do we condone any of the statements she made in the video. Emily has been advised that her comments were unacceptable, and she is not scheduled to appear on any upcoming Fox Sports Florida or Fox Sports Sun broadcasts.”
Then there is Geraldo, whose IQ level has devolved every minute he has spent on Faux…Suggesting the Orlando victims were cowards.
On Monday morning, Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera appeared on Fox and Friends and took the opportunity to criticize the victims of Saturday night’sterrorist attack on the LGBT club Pulse in Orlando, Florida.
Media Matters reported that Rivera said, “When you’re in that situation and you have no weapons, you have two choices. If you can’t hide and you can’t run, you have two choices. You stay and die, or you fight. For God’s sakes, fight back. Fight back.”
He continued, “There’s 100 people that he murdered with one weapon that he reloaded. When he reloaded they must, people must, America must understand, we are at war with Islamic terror, with these terrorists. We’ve got to stop them in Raqqa, we’ve got to stop them in Mosul, and we’ve got to stop them in the Pulse, Orlando.”
Rivera’s charge that the crowd didn’t display proper courage and determination neglects to bear in mind that research has shown that mass shooter scenarios are completely chaotic situations where even experienced tactical personnel have been known to freeze or become disoriented.
As police stormed the Pulse nightclub in Orlando early Sunday morning, the shooter fired at a police officer wearing a Kevlar helmet. While the officer was harmed, he survived — and his helmet saved his life.
In an interview with former New York City Police Department detective and a media personality, Bo Dietl, “Fox and Friends” co-host Steve Doocy asked why the Obama administration was “pushing to take away life-saving armor,” Media Matters reports.
The fact is, neither the Kevlar helmet nor the BearCat vehicle used to punch through the wall of the club to allow police access to the scene are on the list of prohibited police equipment created in May 2015. The order aimed to keep local police departments from buying some items with federal dollars.
“And yet, it wasn’t that long ago where we heard a number of people from the political left say, ‘You know what, the local police departments have too much heavy artillery. We really have to take that stuff away from them,’” he said.
Fox News has yet to clarify the error to its audience. It’s unclear how a former police detective like Dietl also doesn’t have the facts on equipment.
One of the Articles of Faith in the Republican party and of conservatives since Raygun is “Trickle Down Economics”. The idea that making the rich richer, means they in turn will create jobs. In a country where small business creates 3/5ths of all new jobs – it really should have been apparent 30 years ago that this was a scam.
Joe Scarborough finally lets the cat out of the bag…
Now all we need is for the paid Faux News harlots to come clean.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough complained on Tuesday that the Republican Party was fracturing because it had advocated economic policies benefiting the richest Americans for the last 30 years with the promise that the wealth would “trickle down” to others — but it never did.
“The problem with the Republican Party over the past 30 years is they haven’t — and I’ll say, we haven’t — developed a message that appeals to the working class Americans economically in a way that Donald Trump’s does,” the former Republican lawmaker explained. “We talk about cutting capital gains taxes that the 10,000 people that in the crowd cheering for Donald Trump, they are never going to get a capital gains cut because it doesn’t apply.”
“We talk about getting rid of the death tax,” he continued. “The death tax is not going to impact the 10,000 people in the crowd for Donald Trump. We talk about how great free trade deals are. Those free trade deals never trickle down to those 10,000 people in Donald Trump’s rallies.”
“You sound like Bernie Sanders,” NBC’s Chuck Todd pointed out.
“But herein lies the problem with the Republican Party,” Scarborough complained. “It never trickles down! Those people in Trump’s crowds, those are all the ones that lost the jobs when they get moved to Mexico and elsewhere. The Republican donor class are the ones that got rich off of it because their capital moved overseas and they made higher profits.”
GOP strategist Nicole Wallace griped that Republicans “let Democrats paint our side as being on the side of Wall Street.”
According to Scarborough, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) was losing because he still believed in conservatism as it was “defined by the donor class, as defined by the wealthiest Republicans.”
“The Republicans said, listen, we’re going to have all of these trade deals and tax cuts that benefit our wealthiest donor class, but we’ll give them the social issues,” Scarborough said of the last 30 years. “We’ll give them abortion, we’ll give them gay marriage, we’ll give them guns and they’ll vote for us.”
“What we’re finding this year is, they’ll even support a guy who says Planned Parenthood is good if he comes with an economic approach that they feels that could actually help them more in the future.”
In response, panelist Lisa Durden called that argument a “racist statement” and accused those who defend the police of making them the “victims” instead of the people unfairly targeted by law enforcement officers.
“To blame the Black Lives Matter movement for why you’re not doing your freaking job, you robocops, is disgusting,” Durden said. “That’s the same thing as saying a woman whose husband beats her — it’s her fault because she stood up for herself. These guys are not the victims.”
Kelly then suggested that police officers might be worried about “becoming the next Darren Wilson,” in reference to the policeman who became infamous after he killed unarmed black teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.
“Boo hoo hoo!” Durden responded, before noting that plenty of people are evaluated on their job performance, and police should be no different.
Wow! The success of BLM, and it’s influence to make Democrat candidates “get it” has sent the right into flash flood mode. Fox resident racist frequently trots out his black conservative slaves to regurgitate white racist positions. Group buckdancing at it’s worst!
Hannity trots out not 1, but 2 Porch Negroes, and an additional 1 with one foot off the Porch.
In a chapter focusing on how Fox utilized its notoriously ruthless public relations department in the mid-to-late 00’s, Folkenflik reports that Fox’s PR staffers would “post pro-Fox rants” in the comments sections of “negative and even neutral” blog posts written about the network. According to Folkenflik, the staffers used various tactics to cover their tracks, including setting up wireless broadband connections that “could not be traced back” to the network.From the book itself:
Fox PR staffers were expected to counter not just negative and even neutral blog postings but the anti-Fox comments beneath them. One former staffer recalled using twenty different aliases to post pro-Fox rants. Another had one hundred. Several employees had to acquire a cell phone thumb drive to provide a wireless broadband connection that could not be traced back to a Fox News or News Corp account.Folkenflik’s book has already roiled News Corp with its account of Wall Street Journal staffers who found their attempts to report on the company’s phone hacking scandal met with roadblock after roadblock. (The company denied the account.)
In Faux New’ neverending search for the white Trayvon – Drudge drudged up a moron who operates a homophobic and anti-white racist site.
The problem here is that the two Faux “reporters” are just as racist as the bozo they caught.
Of course the terrorizing white folks here is heightened by the “fact” that the black person in question “held a day job at the Department of Homeland Security”, as a contracts officer. Obviously he was in charge of buying thousands of guns! Oh My!
Unfortunately for Faux, they get that one wrong too. Kimathi works for ICE, and was a small business contracts manager.
Ayo Kimathi video –
Kimathi has a history of suffering from schizophrenia, and by some reports was abused by his Uncle while growing up in Alabama.
Of course on Faux News two “Black Panthers” at one polling place in Pennsylvania threw the entire Presidential election…
One black schizophrenic nutcase with a YouTube account ought to be good for a “race war”!
Of course, if he had just stuck to the homophobic baiting… He’s have had a job on Faux.
Ayo Kimathi, a Homeland Security employee, is accused of running a racist website. A government official has confirmed that Kimathi is behind the War on the Horizon page. The website warns of a war between the races. Using a pseudonym, Kimathi preaches against whites, homosexuals, and blacks who integrate with other races. As reported by ABC News, Kimathi is employed with the Department of Homeland Security as an officer for Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The website is disturbingly racist. However, it is not run from a government facility. On the site, Kimathi calls himself the “Irritated Genie.” In his blog, Kimathi speaks out against numerous political figures and celebrities, who he calls traitors to the black race. Some of his rants are directed at Oprah Winfrey, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, and Lil Wayne. He describes President Obama as “a treasonous mulatto scum dweller … who will fight against reparations for Black people in amerikkka, but in favor of fag rights for freaks in amerikkka and Afrika.” Ayo Kimathi’s former supervisor eventually discovered the site. She was surprised about the hateful content. However, she had her doubts about Kimathi in the past:
“This guy is filled with hate… People are afraid he will come in with a gun someday and go postal. I am astounded, he’s employed by the federal government, let alone Homeland Security.”
Employees with the DHS are required to report outside activities, including websites, that may be a conflict of interest. Kimathi’s former supervisor states that he did approach her about the website. However, he was untruthful about the content. Kimathi told his supervisor that he would use the website to display entertaining videos and sell concert tickets. Kimathi’s statements were never verified, and the site remained online. Despite his colleagues’ reservations, Kimathi is described as a hard worker. Part of his job includes advocating for small business owners, many of which are minorities. His former supervisor points out that Kimathi “fights for the little guy… and he’s very good at it.”
Unlike most candidates, Herman Cain has kept his family firmly out of the limelight. Considering the current political tone – that may, or may not prove to be a good idea. In any event, having her show up on Faux on the Susteren show should (hopefully) be a safe bet, with Greta lobbing softballs.
America will get its first good look at Gloria Cain soon: The campaign, beset bysexual harassment allegations, is setting up a debut interview for her with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News later this week, a source tellsPolitico. Until now, Mrs. Cain’s been conspicuously absent from the campaign—prompting occasional media questions. “You will meet my wife publicly in an exclusive interview that we are currently planning and anticipating,” Herman told Fox News. “But you won’t see my family out on the campaign trail on a day-to-day basis.”
The campaign has repeatedly denied requests to interview Gloria Cain, CNN notes, but those close to her describe her as an avid church-goer who’s intensely devoted to her husband. She stayed home to raise the kids while Cain was CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, but has been a teacher and librarian as well. “They know each other instinctively to the point they don’t need to double-check with each other,” one friend said. “They’re a united front.”
In the meantime, Eugene Robinson, over as WasPo eviscerates Cain –
…Cain’s policy positions range from the ignorant to the unworkable to the just plain goofy — and yet he is running first or second in most polls for the Republican presidential nomination. He trumpets his utter lack of government experience as a selling point and boasts of not knowing foreign leaders’ names. If through some bizarre series of events he were actually elected president, the result would surely be an unmitigated disaster.
It’s not yet clear whether this remote possibility has been made even more unlikely by reports — first published Sunday night by Politico — that Cain faced allegations of sexual harassment from two female employees when he headed the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s.
After some initial fumbling by Cain’s campaign, in which aides attempted to issue non-denial denials, the candidate himself went on Fox News to declare that “I have never sexually harassed anyone.” He acknowledged having been “falsely accused” of harassment when he was at the restaurant association, but he said the accusations were “totally baseless and totally false.”
He did not specifically deny the Politico story, however, which reported that the two women both left the association after being given financial settlements and signing agreements not to discuss their allegations. “If the restaurant association did a settlement, I wasn’t even aware of it,” Cain said Monday on Fox.
Nor has Cain, to this point, dealt with the reported substance of the allegations. According to Politico, this includes language that the women felt was inappropriate and made them uncomfortable; and, in one instance, a purported suggestion that one of the women accompany Cain to his hotel suite.
Far-right blowhards immediately played the race card. “Liberals are terrified of Herman Cain,” pundit Ann Coulter said. “He is a strong, conservative black man. . . . They are terrified of strong, conservative black men.” Rush Limbaugh said Cain was being sullied by attackers wielding the “ugliest racial stereotypes.”
Interesting to hear those two acknowledging the powerful role that race still plays in our society — the first step, intellectually, toward concluding that there’s a continuing need for race-based affirmative action. That’s what they meant, right?
Um, no. I’m quite sure that the far right’s quickness to compare Cain to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas — and to call Cain’s present difficulties a second“high-tech lynching” — is just another salvo in the intraparty war Republicans are having…
A wounded fox shot its would be killer in Belarus by pulling the trigger on the hunter’s gun as the pair scuffled after the man tried to finish the animal off with the butt of the rifle, media said on Thursday.
The unnamed hunter, who had approached the fox after wounding it from a distance, was in hospital with a leg wound, while the fox made its escape, media said, citing prosecutors from the Grodno region.
“The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw,” one prosecutor was quoted as saying.
Fox-hunting is popular in the picturesque farming region of northwesternBelarus which borders Poland.
