  • Why status of Kavanaugh confirmation process could become more clear on Friday

    The GOP fears a political backlash from female voters, ŕ la what unfolded in 1991 following hearings with Justice Clarence Thomas and law professor Anita Hill...Feinstein’s comments crystallize the Kavanaugh/Ford narrative. We have two credible people who have risen to the tops of their professions. Yet, no one’s certain about who’s truthful. And, there’s no guarantee we’ll know for sure even after a public hearing. After all, people still wonder about Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill, 27 years later.

    Voter support for Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court is down in the wake of Christine Ford’s assault allegations, as more believe her than him. Currently, 40 percent of voters would confirm Kavanaugh, while 50 percent oppose him, according to a Fox News poll. Last month, views split 45-46 percent (August 19-21)...White voters divide by education: those with a college degree believe Ford by a 14-point margin, while those without a degree side with Kavanaugh by 17...The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,003 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted...

    I’m frequently seeing McSally on Fox but I’ve rarely seen Fox invite Kelli Ward on. Doctor Kelli Ward is the TRUE conservative in the race. McSally is a Chamber of Commerce Amnesty pimp although she tries to hide it.
  • White House official mocked 'dying' McCain after Haspel criticism, sources say

    foxnews.com ^ | 5/10/18 | Serafin Gómez, Samuel Chamberlain
    According to two White House sources, the staffer, Kelly Sadler, said of McCain, "It doesn't matter, he's dying anyway." White House sources said the joke at first elicited some nervous snickers. Afterward, though, the sources said many spoke to each other about being surprised by the "tasteless" remark. I believe Gina Haspel is a patriot who loves our country & has devoted her professional life to its service & defense. However, her role in overseeing the use of torture is disturbing & her refusal to acknowledge torture’s immorality is disqualifying. https://t.co/ocDtdqU2Sx — John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) May 10, 2018 Sadler's comments...

    A retired Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor quit the network Tuesday, accusing it of fueling paranoia among its audience and serving as a “propaganda machine” for the Trump administration. Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a “strategic analyst” at Fox News, made the comments in an email to colleagues announcing that he had not renewed his contract, obtained by BuzzFeed. “Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to ‘support and defend the Constitution,’ and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform. Today, I feel that Fox News is...
  • MSNBC’s Ali Velshi: Trump ‘Cowardly Not to Take Questions From Legitimate News Sources’

    freebeacon ^ | February 23, 2018 | Paul Crookston
    MSNBC host Ali Velshi took grave offense at President Donald Trump taking questions from reporters from the Washington Examiner and One America News Network on Friday. Velshi considered it vital that Trump face questions about the report that former campaign aide Rick Gates would plead guilty in Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election. The news on Gates broke minutes before Trump’s joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, and Trump ended up taking questions about Syria and Jared Kushner’s security clearance. Velshi expressed outrage that the people who asked those questions were Gabby Morrongiello...

    Former Fox News anchor Juliet Huddy said President Donald Trump tried to kiss her in an elevator around the time he married First Lady Melania. Huddy, who left Fox News after allegedly receiving a settlement after she made a complaint against disgraced anchor Bill O’Reilly, described how the mogul leaned in to kiss her after he took her to lunch at Trump Tower in 2005.

    After a week of non-stop media hits and allegations be several women of inappropriate conduct 38 years ago — Republican Judge Roy Moore is now down by 8 points in the latest FOX News poll. Despite the allegations it is still stunning that Alabama Republicans would vote for a committed anti-American Socialist to represent them in the US Senate. Judge Moore has a lot of work to do between now and the election on December 12th. The Gloria Allred tactics of personal destruction appear to be working for Democrats.

    Alabama voters want a candidate who will represent their state with honor -- and they think Doug Jones has strong moral character and Roy Moore doesn’t....    Jones is up by eight points over Moore among Alabama likely voters, 50 percent vs. 42 percent, in a Fox News Poll conducted Monday through Wednesday evenings.  His lead is outside the poll’s margin of sampling error (±3.5 percentage points).  Nine percent are undecided or plan to vote for someone else. Alabama voters decide who will fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a December 12 special election. ...

    The number of voters happy with how things are going in the country is down 10 percentage points since April and stands at just 35 percent. It hasn’t been that low since 2013. At the same time, dissatisfaction jumped to 64 percent -- an 11-point increase.

    James Murdoch, the CEO of 21st Century Fox and son of conservative media magnate Rupert Murdoch, ripped President Trump's response to violence in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend, also pledging a $1 million donation to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The Hollywood Reporter reported Thursday that it had obtained the email memo Murdoch sent to friends. In the email, Murdoch says he was concerned with Trump's comments on the violence that broke out after a white supremacist rally last Saturday. "What we watched this last week in Charlottesville and the reaction to it by the President of the United States concern all...

    Fox News host Shepard Smith said Wednesday that the network tried and failed to get a Republican on-air to defend President Trump's controversial comments on violence in Charlottesville, Va. over the weekend "Our booking team — and they're good — reached out to Republicans of all stripes across the country today," Smith said on his show "Shepard Smith Reporting." "Let's be honest, Republicans don't often really mind coming on Fox News Channel. We couldn't get anyone to come and defend him here because we thought, in balance, someone should do that," he continued. Smith's comments followed an off-the-rails press conference...

    So I'm sitting here watching Fox News before going to bed and this sack of crap called Rick Leventhal begins his show giving voice to all the limp-wristed Trump-haters who are condemning President Trump for his "lackluster" condemnation of white supremacist groups and then he brings on some airhead teleprompter reader named Kristin Fisher who reads a statement from some supposed neo-Nazi group praising President Trump for not attacking them. What a sack of crap and crapette. I'm done with Fox News.

    (CNN)The Russians just played the President. It was predictable. And he let it happen. On paper, Vladimir Putin should not have had the upper hand going into the meeting. To start with, Russia has been living with sanctions put in place more than three years ago because of their annexation of Crimea. And most Americans, save a few people including the President of the United States, are confident that Putin led the Russian intervention into the American election and into many other elections around the world.

    One thing the media should have learned from the 2016 campaign season is that reporters really need to hit the road and do more shoe-leather journalism — get in the car and drive to places like downtown Arkansas and talk with the people who live there. ABC News chief political analyst Matthew Dowd recently had a conversation with a Navy SEAL, and what he learned from that one talk was pretty shocking. Matthew Dowd ✔@matthewjdowd I had a conversation with a Navy Seal the other day here in Texas. He said nearly every Seal is embarrassed by this President/GOP leaders....

Scalise was in critical condition Wednesday afternoon, MedStar Washington Hospital tweeted. He had surgery after being shot in the hip and was initially said to be stable.

    Fox News host Neil Cavuto tore into President Donald Trump on Tuesday night for Trump's continued social-media outbursts that targeted the news media and members of his own administration in recent days. "Mr. President, it's not the 'fake-news media' that's your problem," Cavuto said. "It's you. It's not just your tweeting — it's your scapegoating. It's your refusal to see that sometimes you're the one who's feeding your own beast — and acting beastly with your own guys." *** "I find it ironic that on this, the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, some of your most ardent backers are desperately girding...
