Triple Lutz Report--Freedom Lover Judge Andrew Napolitano Sacked by Fox For Truth Telling
The Financial Survival Network | 02/19/2012 | Kerry Lutz

Posted on 02/19/2012 12:28:46 PM PST by appeal2

Judge Andrew Napolitano, host of Fox's Freedom Watch was unceremoniously dumped from the network this week. Napolitano says in a Facebook posting that it was nothing out of the ordinary and to please not email Fox demanding his reinstatement. According to the Judge, these things happen all the time and are ratings inspired. Watch the two videos linked here and let us know if you think his termination was purely economic.

The fact is, Judge Napolitano was calling out the powers that be. He casting light on the fact that the political parties only have their well-being at heart, not yours. That the system is completely broken and that the government is out of control and a threat to us all. He highlighted the futility of the candidates this electoral go-round and pointed to Ron Paul as being authentic, honest, consistent and all too often right. If these acts and words earned the Judge a discharge, then it was a well earned one indeed.

We wish the Judge and his family the best and pray for his well being.

Very sad to see Napolitano go. He told it like he saw, like it was and that got him a pink slip.

I got tired of each show turning into a Ron Paul ad.

The funds raised in these FReepathons go to pay our current quarter expenses. But we're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little extra now, if we can, and the rest next quarter.

This is precisely why we need a REAL conservative network.

With Fox moving farther to the left all the time, we have no real representation on the tube anymore.

How I wish a conservative consortium would make an offer for ratings-starved CNN which should be available at fire sale prices. The current crowd could be dumped and the place re-staffed with real talkers and thinkers of the right.

This is terrible. I liked the guy, even if I think Ron Paul is a bit beyond the pale.

Yeah, and Stossel.

I like them, but don’t want to hear 1 hr of “Ron Paul”.

I've tried to be libertarian 2 or 3 times but just couldn't make it past their stupidity. I like about 3/4 of what they stand for but they always get back to free drugs, defending people who blow up buildings, and other such nonsense. I just settle for being a conservative, but libertarianism is just too close to anarchy for me. I liked Stossel and Napolitano, but it wasn't something I set my DVR for. I liked Glen Beck very much, but he also leaned heavily for libertarian ideas.

To enact their ideas in a strict sense would only embolden our enemies and make us more vulnerable. Our extra "freedoms" would be short lived. Just as we romanticize the good ole days, we forget FDR rounding up the "Japs" in America and executing the Nazi infiltrators with a sham trial. "Those were the days" most of us would recall, but a libertarian would be foaming at the mouth and calling for revolution.

Back in my C-band days, I used to watch a conservative network run by Paul Weyrich. I think it was called America's Voice. I'd like to see something like it again.

Napolitano had a love of the Constitution over and above any concerns for god, family and country. Which is basically what a libertarian is.

MSNBC says Buchanan is a racist and fires him. But they hired Sharpton. MSNBC does not pass the smell test.

It baffles me why Rush Limbaugh does not create a Conservative news station on cable. Unless he is a phony.

Are we losing are freedoms or not? If the answer is yes and we’ve had divided government for quite a while now, then obviously the parties are not serving the cause of freedom. Is the country in a depression and are we seeing the economy collapse? What is either party doing about it and what are their plans? Answer nothing at all, but lining their own pockets and destroying any semblance of a free market.

Is your solution more of the same, more left-right bs? More rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic? Right now there is absolutely no politician who wants to address the route causes of our country’s decline, except Ron Paul. Now I don’t agree with his foreign policy rantings, but which do you think will be better able to defend the country, a bankrupt government that tries to do way too much, or a dramatically scaled down government that goes back to the concepts of limited government?

Is the country better off printing up money to infinity and having the debt go parabolic, of do we reassess and go back to very limited government and a fixed money supply, if not gold backed? Cause there’s really no choice. The current path leads to economic, societal and world economic collapse that could throw us into another dark ages or take us someplace where we really don’t want to be.

I’m not pushing Paul for President, only his economic ideas.

Fox says it was a financial decision i.e. they did not want to have two shows competing, FNN and FFN. That is a joke. What did they think they were getting on the financial network from a show billed as “Freedom Watch”. No, the only financial end of this was the show competed directly with the Mohammad Ali of the era, the self proclaimed number one in cable. So, the Judge got axed. I used to be really POed when he used to be a guest on BOR’s show only to be belittled by the man who is such a egomanic to make even Ali’s self promoting seem amaturest. I would have loved to see His Excellency grilled by Judge Nap than by BOR, at least it would not be a public ass kissing on live TV.

This is sad news and not a plus for Fox Corps. Let's hope that Glenn Beck can keep Judge Napolitano on the air to keep us Constitutionally informed rather than that pseudo constitutional scholar that resides in the White House.

He hears that from me on a regular basis.

He complains about media bias as much as anyone but seems resigned to it.

I’ve asked him how he can do the tea business and not explore the possibility of creating a true conservative network. No reply so far.

(I think that the tea thing is his wife’s “little business.” She seems to be its honcho. A network might be a stretch for them. But a good manager and solid participants would help that problem as well as provide us with a huge service)

Whoever wins the nomination should promise that. Or, even better, make him Fed Chairman. That'd really roil things up.

He couldn’t form a corporation with Hannity and other conservatives with a little money and then seek backing for it.

I don’t watch FOX news anymore and I missed most of the early days of FOX news because I didn’t have cable. But I remember when they were a solidly conservative news outlet with a few token liberals. They have more liberals than conservatives now and too many like Hannity are just GOP shills rather than fight-until-you-die conservatives.

Maybe I can answer my own question when I recall Rush saying he was going to stop “carrying the water for the GOP.” Sadly, that has never stopped.

The liberals stick to their guns and are driving the Democrat party to the left and have been doing so for at least 90 years.

The conservatives just capitulate to the GOP and move to the center.

It is really sickening. Rush bores me. Hannity is a sell-out. And Fox news is unwatchable.

If it wasn’t for the internet, and specifically Free Republic, I would be screwed.

...."Can you direct me to some info on the libertarian call for “free drugs?”....

Start with Ron Paul and work your way to Stossel. Go to their web site and read what they are for. Legalizing drugs is right up there. If it were legal, don't you think many would plant and harvest everything from weed to opium for free? Are you dumb enough to believe we will "tax" it and make some money? I've heard that all my life. All over the US they are growing it in the woods. in planters, and in basements all for free. It's just illegal. I'm sure what killed Whitney Houston was all just fine for a libertarian. It's her body after all.

I've seen the pain and death that comes with drugs and it cannot be controlled by the average person. I'm 60 and have had friends make the same old argument about pot and are dead now after a life of misery and losing custody of their kids, car wrecks, burned down homes, lung cancer, you name it. They are all just whacked out morons that can't stop taking dope. Each one makes the excuse, it's just a little weed, right before they lose another part of their lives. Libertarians just say that they should have the right to do whatever they want. Tell that to the kids and parents of these wacko's.

Oh, and PS, I've heard all the alcohol arguments too. Just drive down the nearest highway and count the crosses. All those people had rights too.

The Constitution is there to make sure somebody else's concerns about country don't empower then to assume control of your concerns about god and family.

Looking at what's going on in Washington, we could do with some more of that.

The Judge was the most ardent supporter of the Constitution on the tube. With him gone, that leaves none.

As to his the Judge’s support for Ron Paul. Well, that would be because Ron Paul is the most ardent supporter of our Constitution in congress. Since while Ron Paul’s foreign policy might be considered looney, especially under the current circumstances, his positions have a Constitutional base. ie, only congress has the power to declare war.

Some folks like to throw out parts of the Bible they don’t like, or perhaps disagree. Then some folks will throw out parts of the Constitution, which doesn’t seem to fit the current circumstances. Then some folks tend to support the Bible in whole. And, some folks tend to support the Constitution in whole.

While we can’t amend the Bible, we can amend the Constitution. But the latter has not yet been done. Only congress has the power, with the support of the people, to declare war.

If the US is going to go to war against Iran, then it should do so with the consent of the people, and a Congressional declaration of war against Iran. Then eliminate this threat, for centuries to come.

Anything less may begin decades of war, with no final resolution.

Prohibitions really work out well. Were you in favor of the war on alcohol? How the DC/Chicago prohibition on guns. It really comes down to who owns your body. You or the state? When government prohibits behavior that its core is not criminal, all sorts of unintended consequences come about. Like drug gangs, strung out junkies, etc. Seems to me that by advocating prohibition, knowing the harm it will cause, you are creating the next Al Capone or Pablo Escobar.
