  • HUME: OBAMA FOREIGN POLICY UNDERGOING 'ACROSS-THE-BOARD SYSTEMS FAILURE,' 'IN DANGER OF COLLAPSE'

    04/09/2014 12:05:53 AM PDT · by kingattax · 24 replies
    VIDEO AT LINK On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Tuesday, network senior political analyst Brit Hume concurred with a statement Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) had made earlier in the day about the failings of the President Barack Obama’s foreign policy under the direction of Secretary of State John Kerry. According to Hume, much of what the Obama administration had aimed to accomplish was reliant on Russia, which as of now has a relationship with the United States in disrepair.

    Fox News political analyst Brit Hume made a passionate moral argument against abortion on “Special Report” on Wednesday that just may go viral after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) uploaded it on his YouTube channel.Referencing the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Hume said the Supreme Court decided that a “generalized right to privacy that they basically invented meant that a woman has a constitutional right to snuff out an unborn life — a human being with a beating heart.” “That’s what a fetus as young as six weeks is,” he added. Hume expressed shock that, by some estimates, as many...

    Brit Hume has himself a theory about why New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s got this nagging “bully” reputation hanging round his neck: it’s not his fault, see, he’s just a bull in the emasculated china shop of the world. “In this sort of feminized atmosphere in which we exist today, guys who are masculine and muscular like that in their private conduct, kind of old-fashioned tough guys, run some risks,” Hume said on Sunday’s Media Buzz.

    ...Senator Cruz and his adherents do not view things in conventional terms. They look back over the past half-century, including the supposedly golden era of Ronald Reagan, and see the uninterrupted forward march of the American left. Entitlement spending never stopped growing. The regulatory state continued to expand. The national debt grew and grew and finally in the Obama years, exploded. They see an American population becoming unrecognizable from the free and self-reliant people they thought they knew. And they see the Republican Party as having utterly failed to stop the drift toward an unfree nation supervised by an overweening...

    How often do we see Kirsten Powers, Eugene Robinson, and Brit Hume agree on a major issue? Not often, but when the government violates the First Amendment and in particular on reporting, probably more often than not. Let’s start with the least surprising criticism, which comes from Brit Hume, former Fox anchor and colleague of James Rosen, who was investigated as a co-conspirator in an espionage case for doing what reporters in Washington do all the time. Hume argues that the Obama administration’s actions speak a lot louder than their words about respecting the freedom of the press:CLICK ABOVE LINK...

    Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume warned Friday that the “Gang of Eight” efforts to pass immigration reform could be in trouble not only in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, but also in the Democratic-controlled Senate as well. Hume said by rejecting all efforts to beef up border enforcement, the bill was being condemned to “a death sentence.” “I think the bill is in trouble,” he said on Laura Ingraham’s radio program, “And it would in trouble whether they had a gang in the House or not, and will continue to be in trouble unless or until the enforcement...

Brit Hume joined O’Reilly to try to figure out what this latest bout of infighting means for the Republican Party. O’Reilly asked Hume, appearing from Miami, Florida in a salmon-colored sweater, if he was wearing material from Hillary Clinton‘s pantsuit before launching into the substance of the segment. Hume insisted that the skirmish between Palin and Rove has little to do with their actual political “ideas,” noting...

    Last week the Obama campaign released a 17-minute documentary intended to highlight the accomplishments of President Barack Obama’s term to date. The film, narrated by Hollywood actor Tom Hanks, has been criticized for being backwards-looking instead of focusing on the future, as some pundits suggest campaigns should. However, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said the film’s biggest problem was not dwelling on the past, but dwelling on who to blame for the past. “And he said he would not dwell on blame,” Hume said on Sunday’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday.” “I am surprised Tom Hanks could get...

    Rick Santorum is about to see the kitchen sink up-close. So far he hasn’t been a threat, so he hasn’t faced much harsh scrutiny, much less the attacks that are about to come his way. His candidacy is for real, and Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney both know it. While Gingrich thought he could isolate Romney and become his lone real competitor, yesterday’s results, combined with a deflating Gingrich campaign, have allowed Santorum to leapfrog Gingrich as the more viable Romney alternative today. It’s not in Gingrich’s nature to give up. Attacking Romney hasn’t gotten him to where he thought...

He complimented Ryan for his detailed plan and ridicules Newt for not offering anything but a lot of noise.

Before Hume summed Palin up, Fox commentator Juan Williams shared his bewilderment over Palin’s tone and word choice in the video, and thought the whole thing was “unnecessary.” This “just gave her opponents such an opportunity then to excoriate her . . . and did not raise her stature,” Williams concluded.

    The week-old story of Brit Hume's Christianity vs. Buddhism remarks is apparently still fodder for a good laugh, and comedienne Wanda Sykes attempted to squeeze out one more. The late-night talk show host arguably stepped over the line with a skit this week when she jokingly entertained ‘the notion that Jesus was willing to give Tiger Woods crabs. The Jan. 9 broadcast of Fox's "The Wanda Sykes Show" featured a sketch in which two actors playing Jesus and Buddha appeared as "guests" on the Fox News Channel show "The O'Reilly Factor" during which the former Fox News anchor expounded on...

    "The suggestion here is that the American public, being racist, would not accept someone who talked like an African-American and who was particularly dark-skinned. That really does amount to an accusation of racism against the American people."

    Here is video of a Fox News Sunday Panel discussing Harry Reid's comments during 2008 that Barack Obama had a chance to win because he was "light-skinned" and had "no Negro Dialect." The comments have surfaced in a new book by Mark Halperin. Reid has apologized for the remarks, and Obama has accepted his apology. Brit Hume starts off in the video by saying he thinks Reid owes the American Public an apology because the comment is really an accusation that Americans are racist: "The suggestion here is that the American public, being racist, would not accept someone who talked...

    Unless you've been living under a rock or were recently abducted by aliens, chances are you've heard about Tiger Woods' humiliating exposure as a serial adulterer and the resulting damage to his marriage and career.  The Woods scandal has filled the front pages and dominated the airwaves, inviting commentary from pundits from CNN to ESPN to TMZ.  While folks like Dennis Rodman and Hugh Hefner are speaking out in defense of the golfer - justifying his plight by blaming the pressure of fame or mocking the concept of marital fidelity - it's clear to most people that Mr. Woods' marital...

    In life it doesn't really matter if you attain the highest heights if in the process of doing so you lose your wife, your family, your children, or you destroy the world your children will grow in to. What matters is not who in this world likes you, but whether God is satisfied with your condition. It is not so much about winning your fellow human being's popularity as much as it is important to have personal character. Our nation faces grave circumstances. On President Obama's watch no less than four terror attacks have been unleashed against Americans in America....

    ... of some essential differences between Christianity and Buddhism: In his Fundamentals of the Faith, Peter Kreeft writes that "there have only been two people in history who so astonished people that they asked not 'Who are you?' but 'What are you? A man or a god' They were Jesus and Buddha." He then contrasts the striking differences between the two men: "Buddha's clear answer to this question was: 'I am a man, not a god'; Christ's clear answer was: 'I am both son of Man and Son of God.' Buddha said, 'Look not to me, look to my dharma...

    From repost at http://www.solidprinciples.com Poor Bill O’Reilly and Brit Hume. There they were on the O’Reilly show a few weeks ago, puzzling over why Barack Obama and the Democrats are doing so many things that are damaging to our country. Bill and Brit agreed that they couldn’t possibly be harming the nation intentionally, because negative voter reaction would redound to them politically and electorally. Can’t the Democrats see this? Did they suddenly get stupid politically? This is so unlike them. How to explain this anomaly? Poor Bill and Brit, and many others, indeed. It is time to think the unthinkable...

    During the Roman Empire’s secularist era those who acknowledged the deity of Christ were frequently fed to the lions to entertain – for lack of a better word – the “progressive” elites of the day. There’s little doubt that if many of today’s secular-“progressives” (more accurately: “moonbat liberals”) had their way, Caesar Obama would call out the lions once again. Nothing makes the left lose its collective noodle like an open proclamation of Christian faith. You don’t see it when Muslims proselytize in government schools; the ACLU doesn’t sue when Wiccans share their witchy ways; militant “gay” activists don’t picket...

    Brit Hume, former Fox News Anchor, now a commentator, touched off a firestorm when he made some compassionate remarks about Tiger Woods on a Sunday Fox show: "Tiger Woods will recover as a golfer. Whether he can recover as a person I think is a very open question. It is a tragic situation. He has lost his family. It is not clear to me whether he will have a relationship with his children. "The Tiger Woods who emerges once his news value dies out of this scandal - the extent to which he can recover seems to me to depend...
