“They will soon be calling me MR. BREXIT!,” announced Donald Trump in the summer of 2016. Before long, Trump was calling himself that, after appearing at a rally with Nigel Farage, one of its champions.

The association with Brexit burnished Trump’s self-styled (and utterly fabricated) reputation as a soothsayer. More importantly, the connection seemed to confirm that Trump represented something larger: a wave of conservative populism sweeping the Western world.

And yet the collapse of Brexit, yet again, reveals another, less flattering commonality. Conservative populism has utterly failed to translate the political impulses behind them into a plausible governing agenda. It is a visceral reaction against multiculturalism and modernity that has not only failed to produce concrete solutions for its supporters, but doesn’t even know what to ask for.

The political phenomenon of conservative populism has created a demand for philosophical treatises to justify it. The conservative intelligentsia has been engaged in a comic process of backfilling in high-minded arguments to support the rise of Trump. The pro-Trump media is dominated by lowbrow right-wing infotainment, like Fox News and Breitbart — media that are simple and accessible enough for Trump himself to enjoy.

But the vast apparatus of conservative intellectuals also needs essays and lectures pitched at a higher level, in order to sustain its own sense of elitism. There’s no need to raise millions of dollars for think tanks and endowed chairs if the party’s thought process begins and ends with Sean Hannity’s sock-puppet routine. The Journal of American Greatness was founded in 2016 for this specific purpose — defining a populist conservatism that would resemble whatever it is Trump is trying to do.

The right has put its finest minds to the task of turning its irritable mental gestures into something resembling ideas. Peter Berkowitz, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, delivered a lecture at the Manhattan Institute that was adapted for publication in the City Journal. Its theme, implicitly rebuking conservatives who might feel some discomfort with Trump’s vulgarity and open bigotry, was that conservatives have always made common cause with populists. Trump has declared, “I have a gut and my gut tells me more sometimes than anybody else’s brain can ever tell me.” Berkowitz restates Trump’s ethos more elegantly. “Conservatives have tended to recognize the unruliness of the passions and the limits of reason. They believe that recondite reflection and abstract theory tend to obscure practical matters; as a guide to politics, conservatives strongly prefer experience and practical wisdom,” he argues. “Burke allied with the people against ‘the political men of letters’ — the progressive public intellectuals of his day.”

Apparently this innate distrust of elites is why conservatives should accept and even welcome a leader of the free world who has been described in the following terms by his own appointees: “Fucking moron” (Rex Tillerson), an “idiot” (John Kelly, John Dowd), a “dope” (H.R. McMaster), “dumb as shit” (Gary Cohn) with the comprehension level of “a fifth- or sixth-grader” (James Mathis), or “an 11-year-old-child” (Steve Bannon). A president with an attention span so miniscule his aides have to use large-type placards festooned with brief slogans and colorful graphics, it seems, is the worthy heir to Sir Edmund Burke himself.

Berkowitz builds his essay on the premise that the working class has become disaffected with “an imperious ruling elite.” Yet he offers nothing in the way of substance to flesh it out, gesturing only at familiar bromides (“individual freedom, limited government, free markets, robust civil society, and a strong America in the international arena”) as the eternal course.

He fails to acknowledge Trump won these voters in large part by distancing himself from the right, promising universal health care, lower prescription-drug prices, cracking down on Wall Street, ending the carried interest loophole, and other ideologically unorthodox moves. But he has abandoned all these ideas in favor of a rehash of George W. Bush’s domestic agenda. This has helped persuade Republican legislators to overlook his misconduct, but taken a toll on Trump’s popularity.

The populist promises that set Trump apart during both the primary and the general election have simply failed to materialize. Trump’s budget, which proposes cuts to Medicare and Medicaid that he had famously pledged to oppose, is the latest evidence that he has simply defaulted to traditional movement conservatism.

Conservative populism has followed the same course in the United Kingdom and the United States. Right-wing politicians attached expansive promises to retrograde cultural panic to gain power, and once given a chance to follow through, have managed to deliver only the latter. These movements justified themselves as an authentic rebellion against the experts. The experts warned the promises were impossible. It turns out they knew what they were talking about.

As seen on Hannity

Former Democratic U.S. Senator and vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman told Sean Hannity Monday that the Democratic Party's "loudest voices" cannot be seen as denigrating the United States and its economic system.

"Our economic system has worked for most of the American people. It's working for most of the American people today. Unemployment is at a very low level," said Lieberman, who was Al Gore's running mate in 2000 and served in the U.S. Senate until 2013.

Lieberman, who caucused with Democrats but was an independent in his final term, emphasized that some of the new voices in the party - including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) - are putting forth policies that are unrealistic.

"The government simply cannot afford everything they’re promising. ... Who’s going to pay for it? You can’t get enough money out of the top one percent to pay for this. It’s going to be the middle class," he said, adding that he doesn't recognize the party as the same one he joined when John F. Kennedy was president.

The Jewish Connecticut native also took issue with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for her recent criticism of Israel, labeling her rhetoric as "blatantly anti-Semitic."

He said Omar's "lies" do not represent how Democrats feel about Israel, but she was not strongly condemned by her House colleagues.

"If you let lies live unresponded to, they will spread," he warned.

For over two years the Deep State FBI-DOJ and their liberal media has been investigating and harassing the Trump administration over a made-up Russia conspiracy.

Last week Trump confidante Sean Hannity announced that the Deep State was going to face some very serious ramifications.

Sean Hannity: “Everything We’ve Been Revealing about the Deep State in Two Years Will Soon Have Very Serious Ramifications”

Sean Hannity: “I know you’ve been saying to yourself, what about all of the people that we know have been abusing power, committing real and serious crimes. Hillary Clinton is one. We’re looking at people like McCabe, and Comey and Strzok, and Page and many, many, many more. What about the FISA abuses. Stripping Americans of their constitutional rights. What about the rampant conflicts of interest at some of the highest levels at the DOJ and FBI. Tonight we have great news. According to my sources, everything we have been revealing about the Deep State for two years will very soon result in major serious ramifications.

In a development that comes as a surprise to nobody, White House communications director, Bill Shine, has decided to spend more time with his family and less time being humiliated by Donald Trump. Trump’s first communications director, Sean Spicer, blew up his credibility on day one by following Trump’s orders to tell the national press corps that Trump pulled the largest inaugural crowd in history. In February 2017, Spicer gave the communications director job to William Dubke, who gave it back to Spicer when he resigned in May. On July 21, Spicer was replaced by Anthony Scaramucci, who left after ten days, and was replaced in August by Hope Hicks, who resigned last February, in favor of Shine last July.

Throughout these five or six (depending on how you count Spicer’s two nonconsecutive terms) press chiefs, Trump has had consistently abysmal coverage in the non-party-controlled media. Trump has analyzed the pattern and identified the one constant: His many communications directors keep somehow failing to get the media to show what an honest, well-informed, compassionate president he truly is.

Trump reportedly hired Shine at the recommendation of their mutual buddy, Sean Hannity. But, as he always does, Trump began to blame Shine for failing to turn Trump’s horrible decisions into glowing press coverage. In December, Trump spurned the pleas of party leaders and impulsively announced he was shutting down the government and would accept all the blame for doing so. Shine’s effort to rescue the situation consisted of arranging a trip to the border. Trump “spun” the trip to news broadcasters in a private meeting by telling them “these people behind you” (pointing at Shine) had arranged the photo op that was “not going to change a damn thing.”

Trump has spent months complaining about Shine’s work, even grousing “he was sold a bill of goods by Hannity.”

It’s maybe just possible that the best place to get advice on how to win over skeptical journalists is not the man who is so comically obsequious that he introduces Trump at rallies he is supposedly covering and who was privately assessed by Trump as rating a 10 out of 10 for loyalty.

It’s also possible that Trump’s communications directors aren’t the problem. It’s presumably difficult to generate a lot of positive press attention when you’re the subject of so many different criminal and ethical investigations that your best single communications asset is the media’s inability to keep track of them all. Eliminating all the crimes would be a big ask, but maybe Trump should consider doing fewer?

When CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins was removed from an event at the White House last July after shouting a series of questions at President Donald Trump, Fox News stood in “strong solidarity” with her and her network. But despite the DNC banning Fox News from hosting Democratic debates, CNN has yet to defend its fellow news network.

“We stand in strong solidarity with CNN for the right to full access for our journalists as part of a free and unfettered press,” Fox News president Jay Wallace told TheWrap via statement. Fox News anchor Bret Baier also tweeted his support.

As a member of the White House Press pool- @FoxNews stands firmly with @CNN on this issue and the issue of access https://t.co/TFwfLQtP9h

— Bret Baier (@BretBaier) July 25, 2018

Similarly, when CNN White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House press pass was suspended last November after he refused to give his microphone to an intern during a press conference, Fox News was quick to defend its fellow news network over what it considered a fundamental press freedom, and even filed an amicus brief on CNN’s behalf.

“FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” read the Fox News statement. “We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.”

However, when DNC Chairman Tom Perez announced that Fox News would not be allowed to host any of the 2020 Democratic Party primary debates, CNN has yet to reciprocate in kind. (RELATED: Trump Weighs In After DNC Says Fox News Can’t Host Primary Debate)

CNN anchor Brian Stelter tweeted that Fox News is “mostly defined by its opinion division, where hosts and guests demonize Democrats from morning til night.”

Yes, Fox has a news division. But Fox is mostly defined by its opinion division, where hosts and guests demonize Democrats from morning til night. And people at Fox know that.

“We have seen the beyond cozy relationship with people like Sean Hannity and other of the opinion hosts on that network,” said CNN correspondent Ana Navarro on Wednesday. “So I think it’s a — and after the ‘New Yorker’ piece, it’s not irrational, it’s not illogical for the DNC to wonder and suspect that they can’t get a fair shake from FOX News, or they will be set up.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper, at least, seemed to question the move Wednesday:

“There are plenty of people who watch Fox News, and there are responsible journalists who could ask questions,” said the CNN host. “I mean, Chris Wallace is a tough interview, Bret Baier, I mean why….why….does this make sense to you that the DNC would do this?”

However, at time of publication, there is no official statement from CNN regarding the Fox News Democratic debate ban.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told Sean Hannity on Fox News that the United States is being “flooded” with people coming across the U.S. border with Mexico, and it is indeed a “crisis.”

“If this is not a crisis, what the hell would be?” Graham said in the interview, which comes ahead of the Senate’s vote on President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration to allow federal funds to be used to build a wall. “We’re being flooded.”

“The numbers are just through the roof,” Graham said.

Those numbers include family units being apprehended at the border up 335 percent over the last year and the apprehension of unaccompanied minors up 55 percent.

As Breitbart News reported, Homeland Defense secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday that an estimated 900,000 people are expected will be counted as border apprehensions by the end of the year.

The nation’s border defense system “is clearly breaking,” Nielsen said. “We need a barrier.”

“We cannot take operational control of the border without it,” Nielsen said.

Graham agrees with Nielsen that a barrier is needed and that U.S. immigration law also needs to be changed.

“If you’re a family from Central America and you can make it to the United States, you’ll never be deported,” Graham said. “You will be only held for 20 days, and we’ll release you within the country.”

Graham also said that only two percent of unaccompanied minors are returned to their homeland after arriving in the United States.

“Our laws are broken, and we need a barrier,” Graham said.

Hannity said the most “stunning testimony” he’s heard came from a law enforcement official deals with sex trafficking.

“He said most children brought into America come across the open area of the border because the smugglers are afraid to go through the points of entry,” Graham said.”Eighty-seven percent of the people apprehended coming here illegally from Central America never go through a point of entry.”

Graham said current immigration law is also costly to the American taxpayer, with a price tag of $1.6 billion to house and care for unaccompanied minors.

“We need to change the laws, and we need to build a wall,” Graham said, adding that he believes Trump’s emergency declaration will stand and the wall will be completed.

Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, represents everything that is wrong with this new radical extreme Democratic socialist party, a party that is excusing their own bigotry and anti-Semitism. A party that is pushing the most radical socialist economic policies that will guarantee America spirals into a depression. It's that serious.

It's a party that has gone so far to the left, they won't even hold a debate on the Fox News Channel. By the way, I won't be hosting. Don't worry. Let not your hearts be troubled. A pretty gutless move by Democrats.

And, on Wednesday, President Trump responded on Twitter, writing, "Democrats just blocked @foxnews from holding a debate. Good. And I think I'll do the same with the fake news networks and the radical left Democrats in the general election debates."

Our journalists who won't feed questions to their favorite candidates ahead of time. Remember, CNN did that to Hillary Clinton.

Well, that makes sense, since every single second of every 24-hour day, these other networks are completely dedicated to one thing and one thing only -- trashing, smearing, besmirching and destroying President Trump and anyone that likes him. And I'm sure these networks would love to hold future Republican debates, despite, of course, constantly dehumanizing and lying about President Trump and never admitting it.

In reality, we know that 2020 Democrats, they're just too afraid to face real questions from fair and balanced journalists here on the Fox News Channel and our news division. Journalists who don't buy into the conspiracy theories and fake news, that will ask fair and tough questions. You know what? They're not in the tank, like CNN and MSNBC.

On this network, we distinguish opinion and news. Obviously, I am a talk show host. I've explained that job for all the people that want to listen. They don't seem to want to understand what it is we do.

Our journalists who won't feed questions to their favorite candidates ahead of time. Remember, CNN did that to Hillary Clinton. Remember, in 2016, Hillary Clinton's campaign totally ignored huge blocks of voters that she considered deplorable. The rest is history.

Maybe this radical crop of 2020 Democrats will learn from her mistakes. I tend to doubt it.

Instead of passing a resolution to condemn Democrat anti-Semite Ilhan Omar, the Democrat leader will rewrite the resolution to omit Omar’s name. Now the resolution will include bigotry and prejudice of all kinds.

Apparently, their need to be inclusive and politically correct trumped the need for the truth.

Neither CNN or MSNBC seemed to have covered accusations against Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of violating campaign finance laws as of early Wednesday morning.

The National Legal and Policy Center filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) earlier this week alleging Ocasio-Cortez and Saikat Chakrabarti, her chief of staff, illegally funneled nearly $1 million in contributions from political action committees (PACs) to private companies while the latter controlled both.

They were also accused of obtaining majority control of a PAC prior to her primary despite her not disclosing it. Failing to disclose their control over the Justice Democrats PAC while it supported her primary campaign could result in massive campaign finance violations, as reported by The Daily Caller News Foundation earlier this week, which spoke to former FEC officials. (RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez And Her Chief Of Staff ‘Could Be Facing Jail Time’ If Control Over PAC Was Intentionally Hidden)

A review of MSNBC’s and CNN’s on-air coverage via Grabien, a television video-clipping service, turned up nothing on these allegations levied against the freshmen representative.

Ocasio-Cortez was mentioned during seven different shows Tuesday on MSNBC. Her defense of Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, who is facing allegations of anti-Semitism, was referenced in four of those instances. (RELATED: ADL Calls For Resolution Condemning Anti-Semitism Following Rep. Omar’s Comments)

Her name was mentioned during five different programs on CNN, with two pertaining to Omar, and three on her questioning of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former attorney, in front of the House Oversight Committee last week.

Conversely, Fox News’ Shannon Bream, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Bret Baier, and Shep Smith all discussed the allegations on their respective shows. Programs like “Outnumbered,” “America’s Newsroom,” “Fox & Friends,” and “Your World With Neill Cavuto,” which was hosted by Charles Payne, included it as well.

The only shows on the network that did not mention the alleged, potential FEC violations were “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” “The Five,” “Outnumbered Overtime,” and “Fox & Friends First.”

At the CPAC gathering on Saturday, President Trump brought young conservative Turning Point USA activist Hayden Williams to the stage. He put Hayden on the microphone and congratulated him for his resilience since Hayden was sucker-punched by a triggered liberal. The man that slugged him apparently decided he would follow Maxine Waters’ incitement to nail conservatives anywhere they might be found. The attacker’s outburst was yet another demonstration of Trump Derangement Syndrome on full public display.

This from Breitbart:

Conservative activist Hayden Williams confirmed he will press charges against Zachary Greenberg, the man arrested for allegedly punching him in the face at UC Berkeley, in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday evening.

SEAN HANNITY: At CPAC, the president announced his plans to issue an Executive Order to ensure that America’s left-wing universities actually enforce freedom of speech or they don’t get money. On stage with the president was Hayden Williams. He was viciously, as you know, attacked while recruiting students for a conservative organization at UC Berkeley. Thankfully, the UC Berkeley police announced Friday that they have made an arrest. The suspect, 28-year-old Zachary Greenberg. […] Hayden, number one, glad you’re here. Pretty cool getting called up by the president, right? it was kind of worth a punch.

HAYDEN WILLIAMS: Yeah, I guess. It was kind of exhilarating, you know, being recognized and brought up on the stage at CPAC. But you know, there are so many conservatives students across the country who put up with similar forms of discrimination and harassment, and even violence that, you know, don’t get recognized, and we’ve covered it extensively.

HANNITY: Well, and it’s interesting. You were trying to tape him. You had a phone in one hand and he’s just standing there, and then, you know, when you least expect it, it’s a cheap shot. But, it’s also violence. It’s an assault.

WILLIAMS: Right. Yeah.

HANNITY: Do you plan on pursuing this to the fullest extent of the law?

WILLIAMS: Of course.

HANNITY: And pressing charges?

WILLIAMS: That’s really the only way we can hold these people accountable, is by first and foremost, is documenting these incidents as they happen, and that’s really one thing we teach at Leadership Institute is just try and record everything and don’t retaliate because the left will use anything they can to try to distort the facts.

Isn’t that the fact!? Since President Trump took office, the violence that has erupted out of the Left is absolutely stunning (no pun intended). They deliberately do their best to twist the narrative of the conservative position and policies, attach all manner of “isms” to try to denigrate the president or any other conservative that happens to be their current target, and if the words aren’t strong enough to shut down the exercise of free speech, they come out swinging.

I’m glad Hayden has the fortitude and the determination to press the issue because Democrats are showing more and more signs of desperation to regain the control they lost when Trump took office. They were just SO sure that he had no chance, and since the American people showed them the facts of life, it seems there is now no limit to the foul play they will use to gain the upper hand.

The 2020 presidential election is officially gearing up and the Democratic Party is imploding. Radical, extreme far-left socialists have now taken over. And any Democrat who doesn't fall in line and support this their left-wing vision will get thrown down to the curb by Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY.

All of America needs to see this group of hyper-partisan freshmen lawmakers. They are now leading the way, and they set the agenda. Nancy Pelosi is terrified of them.

The group is led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who, according to a report from The Washington Post, warned her fellow Democratic lawmakers not to vote with Republicans or she will put them on a list to be primaried in the next election. Welcome to Congress.

No surprise there. Political intimidation is always a key component of socialism. And AOC needs as much support as she can get for her insane Green New Deal, which promises to totally reshape America by putting an end to all fossil fuels, combustion engines, nuclear energy, airplanes, and yes, cows, because of flatulence and carbon dioxide.

It also promises to provide everything is free. You don't have to worry another day in your life. Free government healthy food, free day care for your kids, free housing, free college education. Forget about K-through- 12. Free universal health care ... free, free! You also get guaranteed vacations, universal guaranteed income and a guaranteed retirement -- even for people unwilling to work.

But like any other socialist, Ocasio-Cortez is really just interested in improving her own quality of life and redistributing the wealth among those in her own inner circle. According to a brand-new bombshell FEC complaint, Ocasio- Cortez's chief of staff is now accused of illegally moving nearly a million dollars in campaign contributions to his own private companies, and in doing so, shielding the cash from all election-related reporting. In other words, Ocasio-Cortez is under fire. Her chief of staff could have used those donations for anything without reporting it, including maybe big payments to themselves, their family, their friends.

We already know, based on a separate FEC complaint, that Ocasio-Cortez's boyfriend, was funneled thousands of dollars from a political action committee set up by this very same chief of staff. But really, who can blame him for taking the money? After all, it's incredibly expensive to keep up with the jet-setting lifestyle of the freshman socialist congresswoman.

On Monday, we first showed you how Ocasio-Cortez, who wants to ban all air travel, loves flying on airplanes between New York and D.C. Now, there's something called Amtrak that she could use instead. It goes pretty much every hour on the hour between D.C. and New York.

It is a very scary picture inside this new radical Democratic Party. And as the 2020 primary season kicks into high gear, it has become very clear that it will be a contest to see who can present the single most radical, most extreme, most socialist vision for America's future.

But she chooses not to do that. Ocasio-Cortez prefers the convenience of flying, especially since we, the American people, are picking up the bill.

AOC told us the world was going to end in 12 years if we didn't make all these drastic sacrifices and changes right now. But then, with socialists, it's always, 'Do as I say, not as I do.' That's why she has no problem taking planes over trains, why she prefers riding in a gas guzzler over public transportation. It's why Ocasio-Cortez probably doesn't want you to know that her very own mother left the great state of New York because of its incredibly high taxes. It's why Bernie and Hillary and Joe Biden and Al Gore all take private jets, and we catch them all the time. The hypocrisy is just rampant.

And keep in mind, socialism is only one component of this radical extreme Democratic socialist party and their agenda. In fact, many of the same far left lawmakers pushing socialist policies are also spreading vile, hateful, rabid anti-Semitic views all throughout the halls of Congress.

Look at Minnesota Congresswoman Illhan Omar, once again facing more backlash after yet another anti-Semitic comment on Twitter. First, she proclaims that Israel is evil and "hypnotizing the world," and then she suggested support for Israel was just because of Jewish money or, as she put it, "all about the Benjamins." And most recently, she pushed the longtime anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that her colleagues support Israel because they have a dual allegiance to the country.

Now, for the second time, the House of Representatives has been forced to consider passing a resolution reminding some Democrats that anti-Semitism is bad and will not be tolerated. Well, that's not stopping Congresswoman Cortez from defending her anti-Semitic colleague on Twitter writing, "We called resolutions on sexist statements, a good chunk of Congress will be gone. Jump to the nuclear option every single time? Leaves the room or some corrective action? I'm asking everybody that we practice calling in before calling out."

So, I guess this is sort of a socialist birds of a feather flocking together? Even when one of them is absolutely obsessed with hating the world's only Jewish state, our closest ally in the region, the only democracy in the region, Israel.

And meanwhile, far left anti-Semitic bigot and self-proclaimed women's rights leader, Linda Sarsour, is backing up her radical friends on Capitol Hill, slamming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision to put forth a resolution against anti-Semitism.

When are Republicans going to stop playing by two sets of rules?

Fox News defends Trump’s lies, amplifies his authoritarian tendencies, shifts his agenda, and gaslights the GOP base. This should concern every American.

We’ve all witnessed the symbiosis between President Trump and Fox News. The network has not only acted as a propaganda arm for President Trump and the Republican Party, their programming directly influences White House policy. Critics perceive Fox News as a megaphone for President Trump’s brand of authoritarianism, but in reality, they are also the engineers of it. Without Fox News’ decades of dishonest programming, there would be no Trump base, and today’s blockbuster article from the New Yorker further demonstrates that. On Monday morning, Jane Mayer published one of the most important reports of the last two years. The piece, entitled “The Making of the Fox News White House,” outlines just how deep the Trump-Fox relationship goes, and revealed how far they’ve gone in furthering each other’s goals.

The main takeaways from the piece that are getting the most media attention involve how a Fox News reporter discovered the fact Trump paid hush money to Stormy Daniels. Since this discovery was just before the election, the network reportedly decided not to run the story because Murdoch wanted “Donald Trump to win.” The report also alleges Trump was given the heads up on debate questions before one of the Republican primary debates moderated by Fox. And in a potential abuse of power, that might be of interest to House investigators, President Trump reportedly ordered then-Chief Economic Adviser Gary Cohn to pressure the Justice Department (DOJ to file a lawsuit to block the merger between AT&T and Time Warner. Mayer reported on the possibility that this could’ve been a favor to Fox News. Cohn reportedly didn’t follow the order, but the DOJ did file the lawsuit.

The piece spent a lot of time talking about Trump’s relationship with Rupert Murdoch – whom Jared Kushner also reportedly speaks to almost every day. It touched on the constant coordination with Fox News Anchor Sean Hannity and the fact Fox Business Host Lou Dobbs has been conferenced into Oval Office meetings to advise the president on policy. And of course, the article touches on the public evidence of their coordination, from Trump’s morning briefing on Fox & Friends to Fox’s efforts to undermine the criminal investigations plaguing the president.

The article also outlines the beginnings of Rupert Murdoch’s network, and how Fox News seeks to stoke fear in an effort to maximize their bottom line at any cost. It details how the network changed after Roger Ailes left and how the opinion hosts gained more power. It discusses how the effective merger between the White House and Fox News was solidified after disgraced former Fox News Executive Bill Shine joined Trump’s administration. After Mayer mentions Fox News became a platform for Trump’s authoritarianism, she brings up a quote from Rupert Murdoch in 1995. Murdoch told the New Yorker: “The truth is, and we Americans don’t like to admit it, that authoritarian societies can work.”

The bottom line of the article depicts Fox News as state-run TV. This is unprecedented in American history. One part of the article further underlines this. There were reports before the election that indicated Trump was planning a potential news network if he lost. This piece adds some clarity to those intentions. Mayer reports that Bannon reportedly called Ailes a week before the 2016 election and said Trump was planning to launch Trump TV—a nationalist network to rival Fox. Ailes was excited. He was no longer working for Fox and was ready to join after Trump lost, Mayer reported. When Bannon heard Ailes talk about Trump losing he reportedly said: “What’re you talking about, we’re going to win”

Donald Trump wanted a network regardless of the outcome of the 2016 election. Now he has one.

Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday derided the House Judiciary Committee's sweeping investigation into President Trump as "the biggest, most gruesome display of modern day McCarthyism."

"Is what you’re seeing from the new far left Democratic party good for you, good for your family?" Hannity asked in the opening monologue of his Fox News program. "Well I think the answer will be obvious because, just like I have told you in the past, once Democrats’ collusion hysteria is exposed as a fraud, they wouldn’t apologize, they wouldn’t admit they’re wrong.

"They were just going to pivot into investigating anything they make up and everything involving the president. We the people will now be subject to the biggest, most gruesome display of modern day McCarthyism," Hannity continued, referencing a campaign former Sen. Joseph McCarthy launched in the 1950's against alleged communists in government and society.

Hannity, a vocal supporter of Trump's, later added that the new probe was part of "an effort to destroy the president and anybody who supports him because... all [Democrats] care about is getting their power back so they can institute socialism."

House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) on Monday issued document requests to 81 individuals and entities close to Trump as part of a sweeping look into the president's campaign, business and administration.

Nadler has said that the probe will focus on Trump's obstruction of justice, public corruption and abuses of power. He also said the document requests were issued to people and entities who have previously provided information to the special counsel's office, the Southern District New York or other officials.

"We are going to be the check and the balance," Nadler said. "We are going to find out, we are going to lay out the facts for the American people.”

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blasted Nadler for opening what she called a "disgraceful and abusive investigation."

"Chairman Nadler and his fellow Democrats have embarked on this fishing expedition because they are terrified that their two-year false narrative of ‘Russia collusion’ is crumbling," Sanders said. "Their intimidation and abuse of American citizens is shameful."

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff “a modern-day Joe McCarthy” during a Monday night appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity.”

“There are a lot of questions,” McCarthy told Sean Hannity, responding to the Fox News host’s assertion that Schiff has “met his own standard” when it comes to recusing himself from the investigation into President Donald Trump and Russia. “Schiff actually laid out a couple years ago that anybody that shows a conflict of interest or disbelief in it has to recuse themselves.”

The GOP congressman then laid out two questions for Schiff regarding the California Democrat’s private conversations with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson and former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

“Did staff meet with [Cohen]?” McCarthy asked. “Did he tamper with the witness? Did he try to direct the witness. How many times did they meet? What did they talk about?” (RELATED: Fusion GPS-Linked Group Worked With Tech Company Tied To Russian ‘False Flag’ Operation)

McCarthy contended that, since Cohen himself denies he met with the Russians in Prague, “the foundation for why we are even in the investigation in the first place has been thrown apart.”

“Before this investigation even began, he said he had proof and evidence,” McCarthy said. “Now I’m not related to Joe McCarthy, but Adam Schiff is a modern-day Joe McCarthy, somebody who claims something and never has delivered. ‘But the one thing he has delivered on: protecting Fusion GPS’ …”

The 2016 Democratic contender and her supporters are taking the offensive against her congressional nemesis.

The New Yorker

Published  1 month ago

In January, during the longest government shutdown in America’s history, President Donald Trump rode in a motorcade through Hidalgo County, Texas, eventually stopping on a grassy bluff overlooking the Rio Grande. The White House wanted to dramatize what Trump was portraying as a national emergency: the need to build a wall along the Mexican border. The presence of armored vehicles, bales of confiscated marijuana, and federal agents in flak jackets underscored the message.

But the photo op dramatized something else about the Administration. After members of the press pool got out of vans and headed over to where the President was about to speak, they noticed that Sean Hannity, the Fox News host, was already on location. Unlike them, he hadn’t been confined by the Secret Service, and was mingling with Administration officials, at one point hugging Kirstjen Nielsen, the Secretary of Homeland Security. The pool report noted that Hannity was seen “huddling” with the White House communications director, Bill Shine. After the photo op, Hannity had an exclusive on-air interview with Trump. Politico later reported that it was Hannity’s seventh interview with the President, and Fox’s forty-second. Since then, Trump has given Fox two more. He has granted only ten to the three other main television networks combined, and none to CNN, which he denounces as “fake news.”

Hannity was treated in Texas like a member of the Administration because he virtually is one. The same can be said of Fox’s chairman, Rupert Murdoch. Fox has long been a bane of liberals, but in the past two years many people who watch the network closely, including some Fox alumni, say that it has evolved into something that hasn’t existed before in the United States. Nicole Hemmer, an assistant professor of Presidential studies at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center and the author of “Messengers of the Right,” a history of the conservative media’s impact on American politics, says of Fox, “It’s the closest we’ve come to having state TV.”

Hemmer argues that Fox—which, as the most watched cable news network, generates about $2.7 billion a year for its parent company, 21st Century Fox—acts as a force multiplier for Trump, solidifying his hold over the Republican Party and intensifying his support. “Fox is not just taking the temperature of the base—it’s raising the temperature,” she says. “It’s a radicalization model.” For both Trump and Fox, “fear is a business strategy—it keeps people watching.” As the President has been beset by scandals, congressional hearings, and even talk of impeachment, Fox has been both his shield and his sword. The White House and Fox interact so seamlessly that it can be hard to determine, during a particular news cycle, which one is following the other’s lead. All day long, Trump retweets claims made on the network; his press secretary, Sarah Sanders, has largely stopped holding press conferences, but she has made some thirty appearances on such shows as “Fox & Friends” and “Hannity.” Trump, Hemmer says, has “almost become a programmer.”

Fox’s defenders view such criticism as unfounded and politically biased. Ken LaCorte, who was in senior management at Fox News for nearly twenty years, until 2016, and recently started his own news service, told me, “The people at Fox said the same thing about the press and Obama.” Fox’s public-relations department offers numerous examples of its reporters and talk-show hosts challenging the Administration. Chris Wallace, a tough-minded and ecumenical interviewer, recently grilled Stephen Miller, a senior Trump adviser, on the need for a border wall, given that virtually all drugs seized at the border are discovered at checkpoints. Trump is not the first President to have a favorite media organization; James Madison and Andrew Jackson were each boosted by partisan newspapers. But many people who have watched and worked with Fox over the years, including some leading conservatives, regard Fox’s deepening Trump orthodoxy with alarm. Bill Kristol, who was a paid contributor to Fox News until 2012 and is a prominent Never Trumper, said of the network, “It’s changed a lot. Before, it was conservative, but it wasn’t crazy. Now it’s just propaganda.” Joe Peyronnin, a professor of journalism at N.Y.U., was an early president of Fox News, in the mid-nineties. “I’ve never seen anything like it before,” he says of Fox. “It’s as if the President had his own press organization. It’s not healthy.”

Nothing has formalized the partnership between Fox and Trump more than the appointment, in July, 2018, of Bill Shine, the former co-president of Fox News, as director of communications and deputy chief of staff at the White House. Kristol says of Shine, “When I first met him, he was producing Hannity’s show at Fox, and the two were incredibly close.” Both come from white working-class families on Long Island, and they are godfathers to each other’s children, who refer to them as “Uncle Bill” and “Uncle Sean.” Another former colleague says, “They spend their vacations together.” A third recalls, “I was rarely in Shine’s office when Sean didn’t call. And I was in Shine’s office a lot. They talked all the time—many times a day.”

Shine led Fox News’ programming division for a dozen years, overseeing the morning and evening opinion shows, which collectively get the biggest ratings and define the network’s conservative brand. Straight news was not within his purview. In July, 2016, Roger Ailes, the co-founder and C.E.O. of Fox, was fired in the face of numerous allegations of chronic sexual harassment, and Shine became co-president. But within a year he, too, had been forced out, amid a second wave of sexual-harassment allegations, some of them against Fox’s biggest star at the time, Bill O’Reilly. Shine wasn’t personally accused of sexual harassment, but several lawsuits named him as complicit in a workplace culture of coverups, payoffs, and victim intimidation.

Shine, who has denied any wrongdoing, has kept a low profile at the White House, and rejects interview requests, including one from this magazine. But Kristol contends that Shine’s White House appointment is a scandal. “It’s been wildly under-covered,” he said. “It’s astounding that Shine—the guy who covered up Ailes’s horrible behavior—is the deputy chief of staff!”

The Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, another conservative Never Trumper, used to appear on the network, but wouldn’t do so now. “Fox was begun as a good-faith effort to counter bias, but it’s morphed into something that is not even news,” she says. “It’s simply a mouthpiece for the President, repeating what the President says, no matter how false or contradictory.” The feedback loop is so strong, she notes, that Trump “will even pick up an error made by Fox,” as when he promoted on Twitter a bogus Fox story claiming that South Africa was “seizing land from white farmers.” Rubin told me, “It’s funny that Bill Shine went over to the White House. He could have stayed in his old job. The only difference is payroll.”

With Shine, the Fox and White House payrolls actually do overlap. The Hollywood Reporter obtained financial-disclosure forms revealing that Fox has been paying Shine millions of dollars since he joined the Administration. Last year, he collected the first half of a seven-million-dollar bonus that he was owed after resigning from Fox; this year, he will collect the remainder. That sum is in addition to an $8.4-million severance payment that he received upon leaving the network. In December, four Democratic senators sent a letter to the White House counsel’s office, demanding proof that Fox’s payments to Shine don’t violate federal ethics and conflict-of-interest statutes.

Shine is only the most recent Fox News alumnus to join the Trump Administration. Among others, Trump appointed the former Fox contributor Ben Carson to be his Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, the former Fox commentator John Bolton to be his national-security adviser, and the former Fox commentator K. T. McFarland to be his deputy national-security adviser. (McFarland resigned after four months.) Trump recently picked the former Fox News anchor Heather Nauert to be the Ambassador to the United Nations, but she soon withdrew herself from consideration, reportedly because her nanny, an immigrant, lacked a work permit. The White House door swings both ways: Hope Hicks, Shine’s predecessor in the communications job, is now the top public-relations officer at 21st Century Fox. Several others who have left the Trump White House, including Sebastian Gorka, a former adviser on national security, regularly appear on Fox. Gorka recently insisted, on Fox Business, that one of Trump’s biggest setbacks—retreating from the shutdown without securing border-wall funds—was actually a “masterstroke.”

Other former Fox News celebrities have practically become part of the Trump family. Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former co-host of “The Five,” left Fox in July; she is now working on Trump’s reëlection campaign and dating Donald Trump, Jr. (Guilfoyle left the network mid-contract, after a former Fox employee threatened to sue the network for harassment and accused Guilfoyle of sharing lewd images, among other misconduct; Fox and the former employee reached a multimillion-dollar settlement. A lawyer who represents Guilfoyle said that “any suggestion” that she “engaged in misconduct at Fox is patently false.”) Pete Hegseth and Lou Dobbs, hosts on Fox Business, have each been patched into Oval Office meetings, by speakerphone, to offer policy advice. Sean Hannity has told colleagues that he speaks to the President virtually every night, after his show ends, at 10 P.M. According to the Washington Post, White House advisers have taken to calling Hannity the Shadow Chief of Staff. A Republican political expert who has a paid contract with Fox News told me that Hannity has essentially become a “West Wing adviser,” attributing this development, in part, to the “utter breakdown of any normal decision-making in the White House.” The expert added, “The place has gone off the rails. There is no ordinary policy-development system.” As a result, he said, Fox’s on-air personalities “are filling the vacuum.”

Axios recently reported that sixty per cent of Trump’s day is spent in unstructured “executive time,” much of it filled by television. Charlie Black, a longtime Republican lobbyist in Washington, whose former firm, Black, Manafort & Stone, advised Trump in the eighties and nineties, told me, “Trump gets up and watches ‘Fox & Friends’ and thinks these are his friends. He thinks anything on Fox is friendly. But the problem is he gets unvetted ideas.” Trump has told confidants that he has ranked the loyalty of many reporters, on a scale of 1 to 10. Bret Baier, Fox News’ chief political anchor, is a 6; Hannity a solid 10. Steve Doocy, the co-host of “Fox & Friends,” is so adoring that Trump gives him a 12.

It is hardly unprecedented for American media barons to go beyond their pages to try to influence the course of politics. At the 1960 Democratic National Convention, Philip Graham, the co-owner of the Washington Post, helped broker a deal in which John F. Kennedy selected Lyndon Johnson as his running mate. But now a direct pipeline has been established between the Oval Office and the office of Rupert Murdoch, the Australian-born billionaire who founded News Corp and 21st Century Fox. Multiple sources told me that Murdoch and Trump often talk on the phone. A former aide to Trump, who has been in the Oval Office when Murdoch has called, says, “It’s two men who’ve known each other for a very long time having frank conversations. The President certainly doesn’t kowtow to Murdoch, but Murdoch also doesn’t to him. He speaks to him the same way he would have five years ago.” According to Michael Wolff’s 2018 book, “Fire and Fury,” Murdoch derided Trump as “a fucking idiot” after a conversation about immigration. The aide says Trump knows that Murdoch has denigrated him behind his back, but “it doesn’t seem to matter” that much. Several sources confirmed to me that Murdoch regales friends with Trump’s latest inanities. But Murdoch, arguably the most powerful media mogul in the world, is an invaluable ally to any politician. Having Murdoch’s—and Fox’s—support is essential for Trump, the aide says: “It’s very important for the base.”

Murdoch may be even closer to Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Well-informed sources say that Kushner, an increasingly valued White House adviser, has worked hard to win over Murdoch, showing him respect and asking him for advice. Kushner has regularly assured Murdoch that the White House is a smooth-running operation, despite many reports suggesting that it is chaotic. Kushner now has an almost filial status with Murdoch, who turns eighty-eight this month, and numerous sources told me that they communicate frequently. “Like, every day,” one said.

Murdoch has cultivated heads of state in Australia and Great Britain, and someone close to him says that “he’s always wanted to have a relationship with a President—he’s a businessman and he sees benefits of having a chief of state doing your bidding.” Murdoch has met every American President since Kennedy, but, the close associate says, “until now a relationship has eluded him.” Still, Murdoch’s coziness with Trump may come at a cost. Roger Ailes, during his final days at Fox, apparently warned Murdoch of the perils. According to Gabriel Sherman, a biographer of Ailes who has written about Fox for New York and Vanity Fair, Ailes told Murdoch, “Trump gets great ratings, but if you’re not careful he’s going to end up totally controlling Fox News.”

“America has found her voice back again, it is a good time for America in the world. For some countries that’s a good thing, for some is a bad thing, for Americans that’s a great thing,” said Amb. Nikki Haley in an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News.

“When I came in [at the UN], Cuba had sponsored a resolution that was anti-american, that basically blamed America for everything. And the United States abstained on that vote. I came in, after they [UN] did the anti-Israel bias, and instead of standing up for our friends in Israel, the US again abstained on that resolution,” continued Amb. Haley.

“This is a new day and a new time when we don’t abstein anymore, we know exactly where the United States stands, we know what we are for, we know what we are against, and we know where we’re going. So I think there is a lot more moral clarity for the United States now, and I think countries appreciate that we are now very straight forward.”

On Friday night, former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Harry Sandick told CNN’s Erin Burnett that Fox News’ Sean Hannity may have turned himself into a witness after he claimed that Michael Cohen told him a “dozen times” that President Donald Trump was unaware of hush payments.

The comment came during an interview on his show.

Burnett first played a clip of Hannity telling Trump Thursday night that “at least a dozen times” Cohen made a decision on the payments “and didn’t tell you.”

Hannity added: “He told me that personally.”

Yet, according to Sandick, Hannity’s attempt to back up Trump may actually lead to the Southern District of New York and the Congressional Committee wanting to hear more.

“I think he’s made himself into a witness,” Sandick said. “One way in which you can make an assessment about the credibility of somebody like Michael Cohen is to find out whether he said things that were consistent or inconsistent with his testimony in the past. Sean Hannity making a serious charge saying he spoke to me many times, said things that were inconsistent. I would think that the Southern District and the congressional committee, that Chairman Cummings just convened two days ago would want to hear from Sean Hannity.”

On Thursday, Democratic Congressman David Cicilline, responding to the same interview wrote on Twitter: “Sean Hannity is now volunteering himself as a witness. I look forward to his testimony.”

Seb Gorka, pundit turned White House staffer turned pundit, is no longer a Fox News contributor, the network confirmed to Mediaite.

Gorka, a self-proclaimed national security expert, worked as a contributor for Fox News before he joined the Trump administration (to apparently wreak havoc on the National Security Council). He returned to Fox News in November 2017 shortly after he was reportedly forced out of the administration by former chief of staff John Kelly.

When reached for comment, Gorka replied to Mediaite with a furious torrent of emails, the first of which accused this reporter of being in a “drug-induced haze.”

“You really are obsessed with me aren’t you. I’d be flattered if you weren’t a washed-out hack,” Gorka wrote in a second email.

After Gorka instructed me to read the jobs listed on his social media bio, I informed him that I could not, as he had blocked me on Twitter.

He replied with three emails in a row:

Wow. What a pro.

So you don’t have any friends or coelagues [sic] either.

So sad ..

And then:

So Mr. Lonely: I have 2 new gigs.

Ask someone to google it for you.

And finally:

FYI I’m blocking your email address too.

Ta ta.

At Fox, Gorka was a regular fixture on opinion programs like Sean Hannity‘s primetime show, though he was not invited on the network’s hard news programs. Gorka now hosts a show on conservative talk radio outlet Salem Radio Network and serves as a contributor to Sinclair TV.

Since departing Fox, Gorka has continued the antics that have made him an obsession of tediously insider media reporting. At this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, he warned that Democrats are trying to confiscate hamburgers from Americans and complained so vigorously about Mediaite’s Caleb Ecarma that the organization threatened to ban all of our reporters from the conference.

News of Gorka’s split from Fox News was first reported in a MarketWatch story on his comments from CPAC about hamburgers. When reached for comment, a Fox spokesperson confirmed the network and Gorka had parted ways.

President Donald Trump had strong words for Republicans in Congress who plan to vote against his national emergency declaration, saying Thursday that a vote against him would put them in “great jeopardy.”

Trump made the statement in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, which is set to broadcast Thursday evening, according to The Washington Post. Trump’s national emergency declaration has come under massive legal scrutiny, with more than 15 states filing lawsuits arguing it is unconstitutional. Trump’s comments Thursday were in reference to a Democratic resolution in Congress that would condemn his declaration if passed.

“I think that really it’s a very dangerous thing for people to be voting against border security,” Trump reportedly told Hannity. “I really think that Republicans that vote against border security and the wall, I think you know, I’ve been okay at predicting things, I think they put themselves at great jeopardy.”

There is a strong possibility that several Republicans in the Senate break with Trump on his emergency declaration. During the record-setting shutdown in January, six Republicans defected and voted for a Democratic bill to end the shutdown without wall funding. The senators include Mitt Romney of Utah, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Susan Collins of Maine, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Johnny Isakson of Georgia and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. (RELATED: Renegade Republicans Could Sink Trump’s National Emergency Declaration)

House Republicans have resolved to stand with Trump, but as the minority party in the chamber they have little chance to block Democrats from sending the bill to the Senate.

Fox News recorded the interview prior to Trump’s trip to Vietnam to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, which ended abruptly and with no progress made. (RELATED: Here’s Why Trump’s Talks With Kim Jong Un Fell Apart)

CNN’s Jim Acosta lied during an on-air tantrum after President Trump did not call on him at a press conference in Hanoi, reports NewsBusters.

After ending his summit without a deal with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, Trump addressed the world media and took a number of questions. He did not, however, call on Jim Acosta, the anti-Trump activist at the far-left CNN.

At the end of the press conference, CNN brought Acosta on air to recap the event. Naturally, the crybully opened by making everything all about himself and immediately started lying:

Well, first of all, I think we have to point out the obvious, which is the President steered clear largely during this news conference of the White House press corps and was instead selecting journalists at random from the other side of the room where there were foreign journalists seated.

He didn’t even know who he was calling on. At times, he was calling on reporters from Russian state media, Chinese state media, Sean Hannity from Fox, and largely just avoiding taking questions from the White House press corps. I think that was by design. That was because he didn’t want to really answer the questions about Michael Cohen.

But as NewsBusters points out, none of that is true. The truth is that along “with New York Times national security correspondent David Sanger, there were at least six members of the White House press corps from American outlets that were called on”:

Major Garrett (CBS)

Jonathan Karl (ABC)

David Nakamura (The Washington Post)

Ayesha Rascoe (NPR)

John Roberts (Fox News)

Margaret Talev (Bloomberg)

So the truth is that Trump did not largely avoid the America press corps. Rather, the examples Acosta volunteered of news outlets Trump did call on are deliberate lies of omission on Acosta’s part. So all we have here is one more example of Acosta heckling the president because the president was smart enough not to give him the opportunity to hijack a world-wide press conference with a partisan speech.

NewsBusters also highlights that Acosta questioned Trump’s patriotism with the claim that the president “surrendered some of the credibility of the United States, surrendered some of the credibility of the presidency of the United States in exchange for sitting down with a dictator.”

The irony here is rich.

When, as president, Barack Obama bent over to give the dictators in Iran and Cuba everything they wanted, including pallets of cash, with nothing in return, CNN hailed him as a The Greatest President of Any President Past, Present, or Future…

But here Trump is, refusing to offer Kim anything, including any kind of sanction relief… Here Trump is already winning concessions from Kim regarding missile testing, the return of our hostages, and the return of the remains of our servicemen… Here Trump is willing to walk away from a deal rather than sell out with an Obama-esque deal, and Acosta’s calling him a traitor.

Gee, I wonder why no one watches CNN anymore…?

President Trump sat-down for an exclusive interview with Sean Hannity this week in Hanoi Vietnam; discussing his ongoing negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un following the abrupt end of his historic summit.

“We didn’t sign anything today. It didn’t quite work out. I would say that I wasn’t satisfied, perhaps he wasn’t satisfied. A good relationship, but I decided this wasn’t the right time to sign something. So, we’ll see what happens over a period of time,” said the President.

“You have to be prepared to walk. This just wouldn’t have been good for our country. Frankly, he could look at it the same way. We get along very well… But I just said, ‘Look, this isn’t working,’” he added.

CNN’s Jim Acosta on Thursday bemoaned the fact that President Trump didn’t call on him during a news conference after the abrupt end of the Hanoi summit between the U.S. and North Korea.

During a segment following the news conference, Acosta asserted that Trump may have avoided White House press corps journalists in an effort to dodge questions about Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, who testified Wednesday on the Capitol Hill.

TRUMP CUTS SHORT NORTH KOREA SUMMIT AFTER DISPUTE OVER SANCTIONS: 'SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO WALK'

“First of all, we have to point out the obvious, which is the president steered clear largely during this news conference of the White House press corps and instead selected journalists at random from the other side of the room, where foreign journalists were seated,” Acosta said.

But Acosta didn't mention that Trump called on at least two journalists from the White House press corps, including CBS’s Major Garrett – who was the first reporter called on – and ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, who quizzed Trump on Cohen’s testimony.

“[Michael Cohen] lied a lot,” Trump said in response to the Cohen testimony, which occurred in Washington, more than 13,000 miles from Hanoi. “But it was very interesting because he didn't lie about one thing, he said, 'no collusion with the Russian hoax.'”

Other U.S.-based outlets that also questioned Trump included the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR, and Bloomberg.

Acosta added that Trump “was calling on reporters from Russian state media, Chinese state media, Sean Hannity from Fox,” adding that it “was by design because he didn't want to really answer questions about Michael Cohen.”

The CNN star echoed the same claims on Twitter, saying “Trump largely steered clear of WH press corps., which helped him avoid the Cohen questions,” adding that “Russian state media got a question. China state media got a question. Hannity got a question.”

Yet even Acosta later in the segment acknowledged that Trump indeed answered a question on Cohen, though noting that he called the testimony yesterday a “fake hearing.”

Michael Cohen is prepared to share who signed the $35,000 monthly checks he received in reimbursement for his hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels, according to a person with knowledge of his upcoming congressional testimony. Cohen is expected to bring documentation revealing who signed the checks, according to that source.

The checks are important because Cohen pleaded guilty to violating campaign-finance laws by facilitating those payments, which went to porn star Stormy Daniels to buy her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump. The efforts to repay him for that disbursement could spell legal trouble for the person who signed the checks.

Cohen is also prepared to testify that he has evidence President Donald Trump committed crimes during his time in office, according to that person.

Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, has claimed publicly that Cohen was paid a $35,000 monthly retainer for legal services in reimbursement. On Sean Hannity’s Fox News show last May, Giuliani said Trump did not know “the specifics” of the scheme to reimburse Cohen. Cohen is prepared to say Giuliani’s claim of the existence of a retainer agreement is false, according to the person, who said the monthly payments appear to be part of a “cover-up.”

Cohen will testify on Capitol Hill for three consecutive days this week: today behind closed doors to the Senate intelligence committee, tomorrow in public before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, and Thursday behind closed doors to the House intelligence committee.

Rachel Maddow’s domination of Fox News continued in February as she bested Sean Hannity as was the #1 show on cable news.

According to Neilson ratings provided to PoliticusUSA by MSNBC, “MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” was the #1 primetime cable news program in A25-54 for the 3rd straight month in February (including all specials), according to Nielsen. “Maddow” at 9pm averaged 549,000 viewers A25-54 (vs. FOX News’ 526,000 at 9pm and 538,000 at 8pm, and CNN’s 363,000). In total viewers, “Maddow” was #1 at 9pm (including all specials), averaging 3.1M (vs. FOX News’ 3M and CNN’s 1.3M).”

In other MSNBC ratings news, “The 11th Hour with Brian Williams was #1 in A25-54 and total viewers at 11pm, topping FOX News and CNN in both demographics for the 3rd month in a row. “The 11th Hour” averaged 327,000 viewers A25-54 (vs. FOX News’ 289,000 and CNN’s 269,000), up +1% over February 2018 (vs. FOX News’ -23% and CNN’s -11%). “The 11th Hour” averaged 1.8M total viewers (vs. FOX News’ 1.4M and CNN’s 828,000), up +22% over February 2018 (vs. FOX News’ -9% and CNN’s +5%). For the 3rd month in a row, “Deadline: White House” at 4pm was #1 in total viewers. “Deadline: White House” averaged 1.7M total viewers (vs. FOX News’ 1.55M and CNN’s 946,000).”

Rachel Maddow Has Pulled Ahead of Fox News

Fox News moved Sean Hannity to 9 PM to be their Maddow momentum killer because the entire Fox News brand is centered around being number one. While Hannity does run close to Maddow, he has not been able to give Fox News the number one show on cable news.

Rachel Maddow has built her audience with her tireless and dogged coverage of the Russia investigation. The first twenty plus minutes of Maddow’s show is the closest thing that cable news has to nightly long-form storytelling.

Maddow delivers a compelling and informative show. Her program also serves as the antidote for the lies and poison that Trump injects into the nation’s discourse.

As Fox News sinks under the weight of Trump failure, The Rachel Maddow Show is soaring by giving the public the knowledge and information that they need.

On Thursday, the Chinese government announced that they were unveiling a proposal where they would purchase $30 billion in certain products such as soybeans and corn.

**REPORT: “China is proposing that it could buy an additional $30 billion a year of U.S. agricultural products including soybeans, corn and wheat as part of a possible trade deal…”** https://t.co/QnPiEVWBXi

— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) February 21, 2019

SPECIAL OFFER: Free “Build The Wall” Coin – Just Cover Shipping!

This proposal came in response to a potential negotiation between the United States and China. Check out what Bloomberg reported.

“China will say what needs to be said to get a deal, but the key component will be in the verification and enforcement,” Arlan Suderman, chief commodities economist for INTL FCStone, said in a note. “I remain skeptical that such a deal will ‘fix’ the soybean balance sheet, without specific very large purchase quotas that I do not expect. However, it would not require very large purchase of corn, ethanol and DDGS to significantly improve the corn balance sheet.”

No matter what happens, it is clear that progress is being made with negotiations between the United States and China. This is great news!

Ever since he announced he was going to run for president, Donald Trump has made it clear that China would no longer take advantage of the United States. In regards to the recent negotiations, President Trump seems to be pretty optimistic about a potential deal with China. Check out what CNN said.

“I think we both feel there’s a very good chance the deal will happen,” Trump said, adding that the group of negotiators has “been making a lot of progress.”Trump said he plans to meet with President Xi Jinping to work out the final details of a deal “fairly soon,” and those conversations are likely to take place at Mar-a-Lago next month.Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin noted that Liu He and his team had agreed to extend their trip for an additional two days as negotiations continue ahead of the March 1 deadline.The vice premier expressed similar optimism, saying through a translator, “We believe that it is very likely that it will happen and we hope that … we’ll have a deal. … The Chinese side is ready to make our ultimate effort.”

“If I see progress being made, substantial progress being made, it would not be inappropriate to extend that deadline,” Trump said, suggesting that he “would be inclined” to allow up to a month longer for negotiations.One sign of progress for the administration: a commitment from the Chinese to purchase an additional 10 million metric tons of American soybeans.“Strategy is working. Show of good faith by the Chinese. Also indications of more good news to come,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a tweet Friday.

The head of the Special Counsel for which President Trump is under investigation for ties with Russia, Robert Mueller, has a storied past. A review of his actions over the past couple decades shows a man at the center of cover-ups, crimes and runaway investigations.

InfoWars came out with an excellent documentary on the corrupt current head of the Mueller investigation, Robert Mueller. This 30 minute video shows that Mueller is not the boy scout that the mainstream media would like Americans to believe. He is at the center of numerous criminal actions and cover-ups. Watch and see for yourself –

The Gateway Pundit is noted in the documentary as well as FOX News’ Sean Hannity who says the following about the Mueller investigation –

We now have in this country what is a runaway investigation. It’s spinning out of control. It’s led by Mueller and his merry band of Trump hating, Deep State, sycophants!

The documentary is narrated by Robert Barnes from Barnes Law.

We have been writing about Mueller and his band of conflicted Democrats running the corrupt and criminal Mueller investigation for two years now. We’ve written a number of posts about the Mueller team and how it is corrupt. Here is a sampling starting with a post on the corrupt team that Mueller put together to run his coup –

Here’s a post on the 10 reasons why the Mueller investigation is unconstitutional (which includes a number of items from Robert Barnes.) –

Bill Maher spoke with House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff tonight and directly told him he needs to go on Fox News more.

Schiff first spoke with Maher about how he wants more Republicans to say publicly what he’s heard from many of them in private.

At one point Maher told him, “No one who needs to hear this is hearing you. That’s the problem.”

He asked Schiff if he gets invited on Fox News. Schiff responded that he does and he goes on “from time to time.”

“Sean Hannity invites you on?” Maher asked.

“Oh, he invites me a lot,” Schiff responded.

He told Maher that he “used to go,” but Maher told him, “You should go. That’s who needs to hear your message. I thought you weren’t invited… Please go.

“You gotta get in the bubble, man,” he told Schiff.

Schiff told Maher that if Fox News had been around when Richard Nixon was president, things would have turned out very differently.

He did say there are “credible journalists, some, on Fox News,” but after pausing for a bit he added, “Just trying to think of some.”

Before moving on, Maher told him again he should go on Fox. “I will go,” Schiff said.

A conservative participating in a recruiting event at the University of California-Berkeley was punched in the face and threatened with being shot this week.

Hayden Williams, a field representative for conservative group, the Leadership Institute, was punched multiple times by an individual calling him a “racist bi**h.”

Campus Reform reports:

At the time of the incident, the alleged victim was helping students recruit other conservatives for Turning Point USA behind a table with a sign that read, “hate crime hoaxes hurt real victims,” a reference to the Jussie Smollett case in Chicago.

But at least twice, the situation turned violent and now, police are asking for help in identifying the suspects.

“Mother f*cker. You racist little inbred b*tch. C**t!,” the man who punched the alleged victim shouted.

Williams told Campus Reform, “Some students nearby tabling were laughing, even one guy was smiling while I was being attacked and trying to hand me his flyer as a joke. The idea is free speech has consequences…. which include you getting assaulted if they find you promoting ideas others don’t agree with.”

In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Williams said he did nothing to provoke the man who punched him.

The university has confirmed that an investigation is under way.

MSNBC’s entire nightly lineup of Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell and Brian Williams completely ignored “Empire” star Jussie Smollett getting charged on Wednesday night for faking the hate crime where he was supposedly attacked.

Last month, Smollett filed a police report alleging that two white Trump supporters beat him up in the middle of the night. He claimed these two men poured a bleach-like substance on him and tied a noose-like rope around his neck while shouting racist and homophobic slurs.

But investigators concluded the Smollett orchestrated the entire situation, and he was charged for filing a false police report.

Anthony Guglielmi, the Chief Communications Office for the Chicago Police Department, announced Smollett was charged with “Disorderly Conduct / Filing a False Police Report” at 7:53 p.m. Wednesday night. (RELATED: Jussie Smollett Arrested After Alleged ‘MAGA’ Hoax)

A review of MSNBC’s on-air coverage via Grabien, a television video-clipping service, turned up nothing on Smollett between any of their nightly shows. Instead, each of them spent time discussing a new report that the special counsel’s investigation could wrap up as soon as next week.

With MSNBC, like the other networks, airing reruns of the nightly lineup shows in the middle of the night, the first time the networked aired the newest Smollett developments was at 5:10 a.m. on “Morning Joe First Look” Thursday — roughly nine hours after the story broke.

Comparatively, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Shannon Bream all mentioned it during their shows Wednesday night. Carlson, whose show is on at 8 p.m., led his show with a “Fox News Alert,” informing his audience of the charges. (RELATED: Smollett Charged With Disorderly Conduct For Filing A False Police Report)

“This is a Fox News alert, Chicago police just announced a dramatic development in the Jussie Smollett case. Smollett is no longer considered the victim of a crime, indeed just seconds ago, he was charged, felony charges, for filing a false police report. We’re going to have the developments in this fast-breaking story in just moments,” Carlson said as his show began.

CNN’s nightly anchors also discussed the newest developments in the Smollett saga. Anderson Cooper concluded his show with Brian Stelter talking about it, while Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon discussed Smollett as well. Lemon, who is on the network from 10pm-midnight, only discussed Smollett during his first hour. (RELATED: CNN Treats Jussie Smollett With Kid Gloves After He Becomes A Suspect)

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi were the first anchors from any of these networks to cover the story of Smollett allegedly being attacked back on Jan. 29.

HBO host Bill Maher told House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Friday to “get in the bubble” and appear on Fox News more.

The California Democrat appeared on “Real Time with Bill Maher” this week after calling on his GOP colleagues to share their private concerns about President Trump publicly.

“No one who needs to hear this is hearing you. That’s the problem,” Maher said before asking if the network ever invites the lawmaker on its shows.

“From time to time,” Schiff responded, adding that host Sean Hannity invites him to appear on his top Fox News show frequently.

“You should go. That’s who needs to hear your message,” Maher said. “I thought you weren’t invited … Please go.”

“You gotta get in the bubble, man,” he added.

Schiff said there are “credible journalists, some, on Fox News” and paused.

“Just trying to think of some,” he joked as the audience laughed.

The committee chairman conceded at the end of the conversation, saying that he would appear on the network for Maher.

Schiff has been one of Trump’s most vocal critics in Congress and opened a sweeping committee probe into the president’s alleged ties to Russia and his personal finances earlier this month.

In a Washington Post op-ed published Thursday, he criticized his Republican colleagues for not speaking out when Trump attacked the Justice Department.

“When he attacked the press as the enemy of the people, you again were silent. When he targeted the judiciary, labeling judges and decisions he didn’t like as illegitimate, we heard not a word. And now he comes for Congress, the first branch of government, seeking to strip it of its greatest power, that of the purse,” Schiff wrote.”

"Many of you have acknowledged your deep misgivings about the president in quiet conversations over the past two years. You have bemoaned his lack of decency, character and integrity. You have deplored his fundamental inability to tell the truth. But for reasons that are all too easy to comprehend, you have chosen to keep your misgivings and your rising alarm private."

"That must end. The time for silent disagreement is over. You must speak out."

RUSH: I have to tell you, folks, I’m about at my limit of being able to absorb all of this and remain civil with this Andrew McCabe situation. This is so beyond the pale. This is just not right. And nothing, apparently, is being done about this. McCabe is still appearing on every cable news and infotainment television show that will have him, even though he is disgraced, completely, totally disgraced.

He was fired from the FBI for lying to any number of sources for illegally leaking. He is at this moment being investigated by the Department of Justice for lying to the FBI. There is an inspector general report, another one, an investigation going on right now, Mr. Horowitz. That’s gonna be revealed in April. And all of this raises the question, why hasn’t McCabe been arrested? Why hasn’t McCabe been put in solitary confinement?

What is Manafort doing in solitary confinement? What are any of these other people doing having their lives destroyed for having so-called lied to the investigators when Andrew McCabe has done exactly that and far worse? And now he is permitted to write a book furthering these lies, amplifying these lies, being given media assistance in amplifying these lies, and profiting from all of this for which any other person would have been arrested, would have been subjected to a grand jury, may have been convicted already, and put in jail.

Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, any number of others that Mueller has targeted have been financially ruined over having done absolutely nothing that had anything to do with the so-called original claim here: Trump-Russia collusion, stealing an election. It is just outrageous! How come Andrew McCabe is allowed to have a Kickstarter fundraiser page? How does he get book deals? How does he get a book tour? Well, we know the answers to these questions.

Most of all, why hasn’t McCabe been forced to turn state’s evidence and sing? Why hasn’t Andrew McCabe been put under the hot lights and been forced to explain the absolute truth of what everybody has done here? Who else would be in a better position to rat on the other members of this attempted coup against Trump? We’ve got Comey, John Brennan, to James Clapper, to Rod Rosenstein, to Peter Strzok Smirk, Lisa Page, Sally Yates. Why not use his process crime to put the screws to him for what surely is the biggest political crime and political hoax in U.S. history?

But, no, Andrew McCabe is being feted as a hero all over American journalism. He is allowed to profit. He was given a book advance. He’s now out selling this book. And he is continuing to tell lies and defame the reputation of the president of the United States. Andrew McCabe is still out there on cable television saying, “I still think Donald Trump could be a Russian asset.”

You know there’s a name for this. There’s a name for falsely accusing people of these kinds of crimes and activities. That term is McCarthyism. And supposedly the left hated McCarthyism, and they hate McCarthyism to this day except when it works for them. When McCarthyism works for them, look how eagerly they get behind it. Look how much they push it. Look how they promote it.

They’ll defame anybody. The Covington High School kids. They’ll defame people that do not believe people running a hoax, like Jussie Smollett. They’ll defame anybody who did not believe Smollett’s hoax from the get-go. Mueller has been doing the same thing. There hasn’t been a crime indicted, a person indicted for anything having to do with what Mueller’s original investigation was ostensibly all about.

Now James Clapper is out on TV (imitating Clapper), “Well, you know, I can see where Trump could still be, yes, a Russian asset, but I think the Mueller Report’s not gonna say that,” Clapper said, “And I think it’s gonna be rather anticlimactic.” So, wait. Mueller doesn’t have the goods, Mueller never has had the goods ’cause there aren’t any goods to have, but McCabe could be right, Trump could still be a Russian spy. He could still be a Russian asset. Mueller doesn’t have the data on this, but we still think that this is all possible.

How is it that Andrew McCabe is free to go on TV and declare that even to this day he thinks Trump may be a Russian spy? And in the very same breath he goes on to say that Trump has undermined faith in our public institutions? Trump. Trump has undermined faith in our public institutions? This guy has single-handedly destroyed the reputation of the FBI. This guy has single-handedly called into question the fairness and the justice at the very Department of Justice. This guy is an obvious sleaze weasel when you watch him on television. He knows he’s getting away with this. He knows the media is not gonna call him to account. He knows that nobody else is, either.

These people are free to engage in all this because they are confident nobody is gonna do anything to them. And they have done this. This has been one of the things that has propelled them since this entire Mueller farce and all of the crap that happened before the Mueller farce got started. They have sat there arrogant and confident that there’s nobody that can stop them and nobody who will stop them.

I’ll give you evidence of this. McCabe is now claiming that he briefed the congressional leadership, the Gang of Eight, which included the GOP leadership, Devin Nunes, and Paul Ryan. McCabe claims that he briefed them on the FBI’s investigation of the Trump-Russia collusion, and he says that none of them objected, none of them had any problem with it whatsoever.

Now, Trey Gowdy’s all over Fox saying, “That’s not true.” We’ll have the audio sound bite of that coming up. But I want you to think about something. I think this is entirely possible, except for Nunes. I think this is entirely possible. I think in the early days of this McCabe goes up there and he talks about this Russia investigation with Trump. And, don’t forget, for the first six to nine months of Trump’s first year — remember how the Republicans were not helping Trump in anything. He wanted to repeal and replace Obamacare. There was talk about shoring up border security. Trump wasn’t getting any assistance whatsoever.

And I remember going on Sean Hannity’s television show, other TV shows and on this program observing that if we could just get three months, just get three months of the Republicans supporting Trump’s agenda we’d be off and running! And there wasn’t any. I later learned about September of 2017 that the Republicans in Congress believed all of this. They believed that Trump was not long for the office. They believed that he had colluded with Russia. They believed the media. They believed all these FBI people. They believed Comey.

All these people had impeccable reputations. Comey before all this began was considered only number two to Mueller as having the most integrity and honor of any human being in that wretched town. So I can totally believe there might not have been any pushback from the early Republican committees when McCabe waltzes in and tells them that he believes Trump colluded with Russia. People forget after Donald Trump won this election, there was so much shock and dismay, it was heart attack creating kind of shock. Nobody expected Trump to win.

I remember on the Friday after the election, Reince Priebus came in here (well, we had him on the phone), and the first thing out of his mouth… “Okay. Okay. We get it. We get it here. No more excuses. No more excuses.” What he meant by that is, “Okay. We — we — we get it. We can’t we can’t blame the Democrats anymore. We’ve got to accomplish things now. Our guy won. We have the Congress. We have the House. We have the Senate. We have the White House. No more excuses.”

Yeah. Well, that was the Friday after the election. But it wasn’t until after September of 2017 that some of the Republicans in Congress finally figured out this whole thing was a hoax. Why did it take ’em that long? At the center of every one of these outrageous moments in history is the media. The media is to blame, the explanation. The media is who is feared, media reaction is feared, and so media malpractice is allowed to happen day in and day out with nobody pushing back on it because they can’t!

The media can defame public figures all day long. The media can destroy the lives of public figures all day long. Because of a Supreme Court case, there’s nothing public figures can do other than try to prove that what the media is doing is with absolute malice — meaning they are intending to destroy careers and lives — and that’s a very difficult thing to prove. So most people never even try because it involves discovery and the revealing of secrets in people’s lives they don’t want known that may have nothing to do with the particular case.

So the media has a free rein to systematically target and destroy anybody they want. Do you realize Sarah Palin is still being blamed on prominent websites today for the shooting of Gabby Giffords? Sarah Palin is still being blamed. I am still being held up for ridicule in so many different ways. I may be the most targeted, ridiculed private citizen in this generation. That may be a bit of it contest. I’m sure there are some other private citizens here regularly defamed and libeled.

Let’s recap: Jussie Smollett allegedly committed a federal crime by using the postal service to send himself a fake racist death threat. When that didn’t garner the desired attention, he orchestrated a fake hate crime, and filed a false police report. He was willing to pin the attack on two innocent people, testify against them, and send them to jail for something that never happened. Smollett has been charged with a felony over the Chicago police report, and the FBI is currently investigating that USPS end of the story.

All of that is terrible but, to me, the worst of it is the revelation that he was apparently willing to accuse two innocent people, until he found out the police had actually arrested his co-conspirators and he clammed up. That’s simply a terrifying level of sociopathic hubris. It’s also the chief indicator that he’s wholly deserving of whatever consequences may be headed his way.

Forget all of that, though. According to CNN’s Don Lemon, the real trouble facing Jussie Smollett is one of PR. Smollett, Lemon says, “lost the fight in the court of public opinion,” and it’s not his fault.

Yes, he’s really saying that:

Lemon went on to bemoan the fact that conservatives are going to “pounce.” The President – along with right-wing boogeymen like Hannity and Carlson – are going to “eat Jussie Smollett’s lunch” over the incident.

Woe. Woe to the lunch-eaters!

CNN’s Don Lemon panics over Jussie Smollett’s felony charge: “Sean Hannity is going to eat Jussie Smollett’s lunch every single second.

— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) February 21, 2019

Now, no one’s going to accuse Don Lemon of being a great thinker. No one’s going to stand up and say, “That Don Lemon guy. There’s a fella with really good ideas.” But even by Lemon’s usual dismal standards, this line of thinking is utterly moronic.

Smollett isn’t “losing in the court of public opinion” because of a bad interview, an out-of-context remark, or even an ugly slip of the tongue. He’s losing in the court of reality because he allegedly committed multiple felonies. He staged a hate crime in pursuit of greater fame and bigger paychecks. Whether or not Lemon wants to admit it, that’s a big deal. It’s not a matter of “opinion.”

Smollett lied through his teeth, portrayed himself as a victim, was willing to have innocents incarcerated, and a laundry list of “woke” talking heads bought his story hook, line, and sinker.

I suspect Lemon’s incapable of feeling shame but, if that’s not the case, he should be ashamed of any effort to minimize Smollett’s behavior.

A conservative activist whose brutal pummeling at Cal-Berkeley was caught on cell phone video told Sean Hannity Thursday he has no doubt that it was his political beliefs that prompted the attack.

Hayden Williams said Tuesday's violent attack at the hands of an unidentified suspect on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley started when the assailant ironically accused him of promoting aggression.

“This person claimed we were promoting violence on campus and proceeded to take his aggression out on us,” Williams told Hannity.

Williams sported a black eye while appearing on the show, the result of being violently punched in the face while helping conservative group Turning Point USA recruit members.

CONSERVATIVE ACTIVIST ASSAULTED AT UC-BERKELEY CAMPUS DURING RECRUITMENT DRIVE

Although Williams was helping Turning Point USA he is not a member. He is a field representative for the Leadership Institute, a Virginia-based organization that provides training for conservative activists.

According to Williams, some UC-Berkeley students took offense to a sign that Turning Point displayed at its recruitment table that read, “Hate Crime Hoaxes Hurt Real Victims.” Williams said the person who struck him claimed that Williams and Turning Point USA were promoting violence on campus.

The sign referenced the case of “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett, who is accused of staging an attack against himself and claiming that white male supporters of President Trump committed the alleged crime.

The group in Berkeley also had a sign that read “This is MAGA Country.”

Williams says he “absolutely” has evidence and eyewitnesses that he did not provoke the alleged attacker. Williams began to record the confrontation but says the alleged attacker knocked his phone from his hand. However, a bystander recorded video of the incident.

The man in the video can be heard shouting profanities at Williams and at one point threatens to shoot him.

“I feared for my own safety so I started to record at that moment,” Williams told Hannity.

“That shot was a cheap shot, especially in the end,” Hannity told Williams.

Police are searching for the man seen assaulting Williams in the video, and the university has condemned the violent act.

“This is not new for UC-Berkeley. This is a school that has been burnt down almost, because they don’t like the conservative point of view on the college campus,” Fox News contributor and Campus Reform editor-in-chief Lawrence Jones told Hannity.

Campus Reform is operated by the Leadership Institute.

Defending her remarks on Hannity’s show, Logan said that as the result of her speaking out about how the media is “mostly liberal” she has been targeted because she is an independent voice.

“Any journalists who are not beating the same drum and giving the same talking points,” she insisted “pay the price” for not going along with the liberal crowd.

She added: “They smear you personally. They go after your integrity. They go after your reputation as a person and a professional. They will stop at nothing. I am not the only one. And I am just, I am done, right, I am tired of it. And they do not get to write my story anymore. They don’t get to speak for me, I want to say loudly and clearly to anybody who is listening, I am not owned. Nobody owns me, right? I’m not owned by the left or the right.”

Logan made headlines recently when, during a scorched earth podcast interview with Ritland, she said that there was a lot of “weight” in most news organizations on “one side of the political spectrum.”

“The media everywhere is mostly liberal. But in this country, 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats. So that’s just a fact, right?” she told Ritland.

She also trashed reporting based on single, anonymous government sources.

“That’s not journalism, that’s horseshit,” Logan stressed. “Responsibility for fake news begins with us. We bear some responsibility for that, and we’re not taking ownership of that and addressing it. We just want to blame it all on somebody else.”

CBS News did not comment on Logan’s interview with Ritland. Logan quietly departed CBS last year.

Former CBS reporter Lara Logan doubled down on her scathing criticisms of the mainstream media, accusing liberal journalists of retaliating against those who speak the truth.

Speaking with Fox News host Sean Hannity last night, Logan explained how she has been targeted for her past comments.

Hannity asked Logan, “You say this, which is just a fact…85 percent [of journalists]…are liberal. You say you need two sources. That’s so far gone. Why, if you tell the truth like that, do you believe that you pretty much just committed career suicide?”

She replied, “It’s obvious, you get targeted. They are already starting to target me again now. And I expected it. I was joking that I embrace fire and fury, because I know they are going to come after me again. I’m not the only one.

Despite the massive amount of evidence against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett, you have to assume he's an innocent man until convicted in a court of law. That is standard for anybody.

But this is about so much more than an overpaid, attention seeking, wanting a raise, Trump-hating actor. The Smollett case represents another example of what I have been saying since 2007 and 2008: Journalism in this country is dead.

In case after case after case, the mainstream media, they devour any story that just fits their radical, extreme extension of the Democratic socialist party agenda. If it advances the narrative that Donald Trump is evil and his supporters are bad and America is scary and racist and sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, the media mob will shift into full gear without performing any due diligence -- without even picking up the telephone, without any kind of investigation, not even five minutes worth.

Look at what they did to the 16-year-old Covington high school student, Nick Sandmann. Off a 15-second blurb, they accused him of being a racist, harassed him, accused him of assaulting a 65-year-old activist and getting in his face. They tried to ruin this kid's life with slander, smearing, besmirching, character assassination.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE ENTIRE EPISODE.

They accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of gang rape, saying that every other weekend, he and his friends were drugging teenage girls and literally, you know, lining up in the hall for gang rapes that nobody ever reported. They tried to ruin his life, tried to call him an alcoholic. We know how that ended. He is now a Supreme Court justice.

The media mob's disgusting bias, it is obvious, both from what they obsess over and what they choose to sweep under the rug.

Remember, they falsely accused UVA students of rape. Remember the Duke Lacrosse players? They accused them of rape. Eighty-some-odd professors at Duke bought the story hook, line, and sinker without any evidence. They falsely accused Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Remember, he used to be a police officer. His career is now over.

George Zimmerman, everybody saying he was guilty but there was an eyewitness that showed up. Several police officers in Baltimore, everybody was assured they were going to get guilty pleas. None of them did.

And guess what? As we speak, they're falsely accusing President Trump of Russia collusion. That, too, is a hoax, while simultaneously ignoring what is now a mountain of evidence of the single biggest abuse of power, corruption scandal in history where they tried to rig an election, and then undo the election of the duly-elected president of the United States. In the era of Trump, far-left hoaxes, are way too common. The media are way too complicit.

But they buy these stories again and again -- hook, line, sinker -- vilifying innocent people in the process over and over again. When the stories are exposed, when the lies are revealed, so-called journalists and so-called news organizations, they move on. They just pretend like it never happened.

Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh summarized the state of the media pitch-perfectly. He said the following: "The left is nothing but phony. Hate crimes, phony alleged hate crimes, phony charges, made up stories, they know these things probably aren't true but they want them to be and that's why they report them as true. They think this is what America is."

"In the mind of the American left, these crimes are happening everywhere," Limbaugh continued. "Even if the Smollett case isn't real, it's real elsewhere and we must raise consciousness. The media is signing onto it, the celebrities are signing on, presidential candidates are signing onto it, and tweeting what a rotten place America is because of it."

Rush is right. The media mob's disgusting bias, it is obvious, both from what they obsess over and what they choose to sweep under the rug.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders fired back at conservative commentator Ann Coulter after Coulter trashed President Donald Trump on Friday.

Coulter supported Trump in 2016, but has criticized the president for not getting a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border built. As reported by The Western Journal, her incendiary commentary peaked again Friday when Trump announced he was declaring a national emergency to build the wall.

Sanders went on Fox News later and was asked by host Dana Perino about the influence of Coulter and other conservative media voices — a subject that had been raised earlier in the day during the president’s question-and-answer session with the media.

“I don’t think Ann Coulter has any influence over this White House, or influence over much of anything to be honest,” Sanders said. “I don’t think she did before the president became the president, and I don’t think she does now. I just don’t see her as being an influential voice in this country, and certainly not one in this building.”

Coulter riposted with a tweet.

“Correct — and I want it memorialized. Nor did I have any influence on the captain of the Titanic, the operators of the Hindenburg or the 9/11/2001 Terrorism Prevention Team,” she wrote.

— Mark R. Levin (@marklevinshow) February 15, 2019

Earlier Friday, Trump was asked by one reporter how much “outside conservative voices” had influenced his decision to declare the emergency.

Trump praised Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson of Fox News and conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh. He gave Coulter more extensive discussion.

“They don’t decide policy. In fact, if I went opposite — I mean, they have somebody — Ann Coulter. I don’t know her. I hardly know her. I haven’t spoken to her in way over a year. But the press loves saying ‘Ann Coulter.’ Probably, if I did speak to her, she’d be very nice. I just don’t have the time to speak to her. I would speak to her; I have nothing against her,” Trump said.

Trump them explained the only reason he liked Coulter.

“In fact, I like her for one reason: When they asked her, like right at the beginning, who was going to win the election, she said, ‘Donald Trump,'” the president said. “And the two people that asked her that question smiled. They said, ‘You’re kidding, aren’t you?’ ‘Nope. Donald Trump.'”

Trump then tried to sum up his relationship with Coulter.

“So I like her, but she’s off the reservation. But anybody that knows her understands that. But I haven’t spoken to her. I don’t follow her. I don’t talk to her. But the press loves to bring up the name ‘Ann Coulter.’ And you know what? I think she’s fine. I think she’s good. But I just don’t speak to her,” he said, according to a White House media pool report.

Can we blame U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), really?

Being ambitious and bold are not usually considered bad things. And her most ambitious, boldest proposal is not exactly without precedent. A decade of quantitative easing, along with trillion-dollar annual deficits run up recently by congressional Republicans, have laid the debt-ridden tracks upon which she hopes her massive Green New Deal will glide.

Oh, sure, we can derisively point to the now-withdrawn FAQ, which the congresswoman’s staff “accidentally” posted onto the Web and sent out to reporters. Keep your balance near those computer keyboards, folks.

Remember, those answers to a ton of questions about this complete re-making of the economy and society as a whole were “unfinished,” and “erroneously” said things, such as that the Green New Deal (GND) would be “guaranteeing . . . Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

Cut the green congresswoman some slack?

Slack or no, a reading of the actual totalitarian-esque not-yet-withdrawn House Resolution — calling for “a new national, social, industrial, and economic mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal era” and labeling it “a historic opportunity” — makes it all clear. You cannot tell me that silly FAQ wasn’t spot on.

View Cartoon

Timing wasn’t helpful to Ocasio-Cortez’s rollout of the GND, either. Who knew that, days after the GND offered to Americans the notion that high-speed train travel could be a human (almost religious) right, deepest blue-state Governor Gavin Newsom stopped California’s high-speed train projects in their tracks, looking at costs and declaring, “Let’s be real.”

Nonetheless, the Green New Deal enthusiastically promises to “create millions of good, high-wage jobs . . . provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security for all people . . . and . . . counteract systemic injustices.”

But what about afterlunch?

The GND must produce a plethora of new positions in its trumpeted new Green economy, of course, after wiping out millions of jobsin private health insurance (500,000) and the fossil fuel industry (10 million) and who knows where else.

Meanwhile, more than 100 Democrats in Congress, including four declared presidential candidates — Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) — have rushed in to endorse the Green New Deal resolution for Uber-unlimited government.

The Republican reaction provides a different kind of comedy. Kindly old Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that he will generously bring the GND to a vote in the U.S. Senate, helping Ocasio-Cortez in the upper house — and putting Senate sponsor Edward Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, and all other senators squarely on the record. Just as it should be.

Has Sen. McConnell turned over a new green leaf? Or is the Senate’s “Napping Turtle” merely maniacally morphing the GND from a harmless progressive virtue-signaling prop into a weaponized boomerang to bop Dems in their too-Bolshevikian behinds? The comeuppance would come, according to this rationale, when the public realizes just how humongously big Big Government would be if only Democrats were voting.

So let’s vote.

“I’m going to stand up for Ocasio-Cortez,” announced Sean Hannity on his Fox News program, responding to charges the GND wasn’t serious. “I think she’s probably the most honest extreme radical democratic socialist in the country, in that she’s saying what they have wanted to do, incrementally, for years.”

Give AOC her due. Just when Big Brother most needed a facelift, she has brought fresh young energy to tired, old-fashioned socialism.

And leading Democrats out of the shadows.

Sources with links to the justice department report that Fox News is under an FBI counterintelligence investigation for co-ordinating with the Kremlin in broadcasting propaganda.

While the First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech and journalistic freedom, sources say that signals intelligence gathered from so-called ‘incidental collection,’ such as NSA collection on Sputnik and Russia Today, which is ongoing.

Specifically, Sean Hannity is on signals intelligence co-ordinating his pro-Trump message with organs of the Russian state, such as RT, Sputnik, Wikileaks and Julian Assange. However, emails co-ordinating messaging with registered agents of the Russian state are said to exist from more shows than that of Sean Hannity.

Furthermore, sources familiar with the matter say that the FBI is actively considering a referral to the FCC, in addition to any criminal prosecutions that may result for individuals not registering under FARA for coordinating with official agents of the Russian state.

A great many of Fox News’ employees, anchors and executives have reported fearlessly on Trump and Russia, including Shep Smith. The problems appear to be executive based and systemic, these sources say, and a referral to the FCC is being considered. The First Amendment protects journalistic freedom, but systemic and repeated coordination with official organs of the Russian state is regarded as knowing collaboration with an enemy attack on America. Referral to the FCC is an option under consideration at a corporate level, sources report, and prosecutions for chief malicious actors, in particular Sean Hannity, are probable, these sources say.

When President Donald Trump was mulling over accepting a bipartisan spending agreement aimed at avoiding a second shutdown, he reportedly called on his friends from Fox News and Fox Business to try to sell them on the border deal.

The New York Times reported on the phone calls in an article published Wednesday that claimed Trump was trying to put the “best face” on the whole thing.

One call was made to Lou Dobbs, a favorite of Mr. Trump’s whose Fox Business Network show he often tries to catch live. Another was placed to Sean Hannity, the Fox host who regularly talks with the president.

The message was apparently that it was not a loss and — Trump deserved support — because he still got concessions he would have never gotten if he hadn’t forced the government into a five-week government shutdown.

Meanwhile, it seems Trump has not given up on building the wall.

Trump’s aides are busy trying to find pots of discretionary funding that can be redirected towards Trump’s wall, the Times also reported. The president also hasn’t ruled out declaring a national emergency and bypassing Congress, a move that is certain to launch a battle in court.

The goal now, it seems to be to convince supporters and his friends at Fox that the border deal is not a bad thing.

James Jay Carafano, a national security analyst at the Heritage Foundation, already has that pro-Trump messaging down.

“People say, ‘Well, the president lost,’” he told the Times. “The analogy here is if it’s a 10-round fight, Trump’s fighting 10 rounds. If Pelosi wants to say at the end of Round 1, ‘I won that round,’ Trump’s like, ‘Yeah, maybe, but I’m fighting 10 rounds.’”

Multiple sources inside the White House have confirmed for Big League Politics that high-level officials within the President Donald J. Trump’s administration – without Trump’s knowledge – denied Angel Moms a meeting with Trump to discuss Thursday’s proposed budget bill, which does not include full border wall funding.

Sabine Durden, one of the Angel Moms, a group of brave activists whose children have been slain by illegal aliens, was denied the opportunity to meet with Trump to discuss her opposition to the budget.

“Somebody doesn’t want Donald Trump to see us, because one look at us and our dead children, and he won’t want to sign that bill,” said Angel Mom Sabine Durden. “This request to meet with Donald Trump has been put in for quite some time, so it was a surprise.”

According to multiple sources, Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and Director of Strategic Communications Mercedes Schlapp personally nuked the meeting. The sources told BLP that Trump does not even know that the Angel Moms are in Washington, D.C., and that his staff is actively working to make sure that Trump does not learn of their presence.

“I don’t want [Trump] seeing dead kids before the budget vote because then he won’t vote for it,” Mulvaney reportedly said.

This confirms an earlier Tweet from One America News reporter Ryan James Girdusky. BLP was able to confirm that the staffer was Mulvaney.

Angel moms are in Washington D.C. right now and we’re rejected by the White House when they requested a meeting with @realDonaldTrump by his staff. Two sources told me the staff doesn’t want him to see them b/c “he won’t want to sign the DHS funding bill if he sees dead kids”

— Ryan James Girdusky (@RyanGirdusky) February 14, 2019

The sources told BLP that Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law and senior advisor, is working with White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Bill Shine behind the scenes to spike any criticism of the bill. According to one source, the White House even had a phone call with Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs, opponents of the bill, to ask them to stop publicly criticizing it.

As GOP establishment forces around Trump lead him towards signing the heaping pile of garbage that is the budget bill, Durden understands Trump’s team is actively working against him to subvert his America First agenda.

Durden is a legal immigrant whose son, Dominic, was killed by an illegal alien. She said that when the Angel Moms are in D.C., they are usually invited onto Fox News, and hope that that will be the case tonight, so they can tell this story.

Amy Kremer, co-founder of Women for Trump, was also present with the group in the white house.

Durden said that the last time the group visited Washington, D.C., they went to the office of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a staunch border security opponent. She recounted that the group was treated dismissively by the staff, though the staff did remove a poster with children wearing “undocumented and proud” t-shirts in the presence of the Angel Moms. She said that she left Pelosi one dollar, the exact amount of funding offered by Pelosi to build a border wall.

Read the conversation below between Nunes and Hannity:

REP. DEVIN NUNES: We’re going to work with the [House] Judiciary Committee and the [House] Oversight Committee, Sean, to ensure that this investigation into FISA abuse and other matters continues. The good thing is we got through about 15 interviews last year, the task for did, you covered it extensively on your show. We are going to continue to call people in for interviews. Just last week, the new chairman of the committee said that he is going to reopen the Russia investigation. We offered about a dozen subpoenas of people that we wanted to subpoena. We don’t expect for them to subpoena the people that we want, but at every attempt that we can, at every opportunity that we get, we will make attempts to subpoena these people to come in and speak. We will also ask for people to voluntarily come in and speak. Look, we need the new attorney general to get in there and then we will be making criminal referrals on many people who lied to Congress and did other bad things.

SEAN HANNITY: Does that mean we can be expecting pre-dawn raids with amphibious vehicles, frogmen, SWAT teams of 27, all of this to arrest one guy on a process crime? Is that what’s going to happen to Democrats? In other words, aren’t there a list of well-known people that served in the Obama administration that lied under oath?

REP. NUNES: I’m not asking anyone to be Roger Stone’d, which I think is now a verb, now. But, I am expecting people to be held accountable. If you’re going to bust people for lying to Congress, then we need to bust everyone for lying to Congress. Look, we’re just the House side. My guess is on the Senate side there are many people that some of the same people probably lied over there, so they should also be doing the same.

Thank goodness we have a fighter in Congress who is going after people other than people from the Trump campaign.

Maybe the new attorney general will actually take action.

Will these people who lied to Congress be treated like Roger Stone?

Probably not. But the fact that Nunes is taking action is a step in the right direction.

Former acting FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe confirmed to CBS News that he ordered the investigation into President Trump. McCabe told 60 Minutes’ Scott Pelley the probe was to investigate the president’s ties to Russia and he revealed private discussions among senior officials to remove Trump from office.

“I wanted to make sure that our case was on solid ground and if somebody came in behind me and closed it and tried to walk away from it, they would not be able to do that without creating a record of why they made that decision,” McCabe said.

Sara Carter, who has investigated McCabe and the FBI’s handling of the Russia investigation for several years, will appear on Fox New’s Sean Hannity Thursday night (tonight) at 9 p.m. EST, along with Gregg Jarrett, to discuss the explosive Pelley interview with McCabe.

Pelley appeared on CBS Thursday previewing the much anticipated interview with McCabe, which will air Sunday Feb. 17.

Moreover, McCabe confirmed that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein offered to wear a wire in his meetings with the President. He said Rosenstein, along with others, discussed invoking the 25th Amendment, stating the president is unfit for office.

McCabe further clarified in Pelley’s interview that the discussions were serious and not just off-hand comments made out of anger, as suggested by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. According to the New York Times and multiple sources Rosenstein had offered to wire himself to secretly record the president.

In fact, Pelley called the information ‘illuminating and surprising’ because the American people were left in the dark.

McCabe was fired in March after the inspector General report revealed he lied about leaking to the press and a criminal referral was made to the DOJ. The McCabe interview comes just before the release of his new book, “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Under mounting pressure from his own party, President Donald Trump appeared to be grudgingly leaning toward accepting an agreement that would head off a threatened second government shutdown but provide just a fraction of the money he's been demanding for his Mexican border wall. Trump said Tuesday he would need more time to study the plan, but he also declared he was not expecting another shutdown this weekend when funding for parts of the government would run out. He strongly signaled he planned to scrounge up additional dollars for the wall by raiding other federal coffers to deliver on the signature promise of his presidential campaign.

Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee are seeking to subpoena “about a dozen” individuals connected to allegations of political bias within the FBI according to ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).

Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Nunes said, “We are going to continue to call people in for interviews. Just last week, the new chairman of the committee said that he is going to reopen the Russia investigation. We offered about a dozen subpoenas of people that we wanted to subpoena. We don’t expect for them to subpoena the people that we want, but at every attempt that we can, at every opportunity that we get, we will make attempts to subpoena these people to come in and speak.”

Nunes, the ranking member of the committee, cautioned he has little hope in Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., taking him up on the request made during last week’s closed business meeting, but he stressed that plans are moving forward regardless to investigate alleged political bias in the FBI.

…He also said the GOP minority will ask people to come in voluntarily and speak.

In January, Nunes told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he and his Republican colleagues will continue to investigate allegations of bias and misconduct within the FBI, and even make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.

While the Congressman would not name anyone specific, Carlson suggested former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Director James Comey as possible candidates for criminal referrals.

Nunes also said that he doesn’t think much will get accomplished with the referrals until a new attorney general is in place.

“Don’t forget, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) actually made a referral on Christopher Steele–the British agent who worked for the Clinton campaign. He was referred. Nothing is happening to him,” he said. “So, I think until there’s a new AG that gets in there and starts to clean this up, I think its going to be tough for the American people to have confidence in what’s happening over there.”

The tentative border-wall compromise deal reached Monday night while President Trump was making his speech at a rally in El Paso, is “garbage,” said Fox New’s Sean Hannity. He wasn’t the only one.

Republican lawmakers who have backed Trump’s call for $5.7 billion in infrastructure funding said the deal is a no deal as the Friday deadline looms for another partial government shutdown. The deal must still pass a vote in the House and Senate. It will then be sent to the President for his signature.

“By the way, on this new so-called compromise,” Hannity said. “I’m getting details. $1.3 billion? That’s not even a wall, a barrier… We will get back into this tomorrow. Any Republican that supports this garbage compromise, you will have to explain—look at this crowd, look at the country.”

Similarly, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and other lawmakers, voiced their displeasure with the deal on Twitter.

“While the President was giving a great speech in El Paso, Congress was putting together a bad deal on immigration,” said Jordan.

According to lawmakers the deal would keep the levels of beds requested by ICE at last years budget numbers, roughly 40,520 beds.

While the President was giving a great speech in El Paso, Congress was putting together a bad deal on immigration.#DoWhatWeSaid

— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) February 12, 2019

The potential compromise, would allocate only $1.375 billion to build only 55 miles to extend new border barriers along the U.S. Mexico border, which is roughly 2,000 miles in length. The president has called for the construction of 200 miles of new wall in areas requested by federal law enforcement. Border Patrol agents and ICE officers said the barriers are necessary to better allocate resources and secure the border.

Hannity referenced a CBS survey, revealing over 76 percent of Americans approved of Trump’s State of the Union address.

“Even they say 72 percent of the American people want the heroin to stop, the cartels to stop, the gang members to stop, and those that wish us ill,” Hannity said.

Likewise, Trump also displayed his frustration with the slow-going negotiations. Trump said he did not have time to go over the details of the compromise before the rally.

“They say that progress is being made,” he told the cheering crowd. “Just so you know. Just now, just now. I said wait a minute, I gotta take care of my people from Texas. I got to go. I don’t even want to hear about it.”

The congressional compromise, however, may not mean Trump won’t get the wall he wants.

White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney told Fox News Sunday, if Trump can’t get the funding for the border wall from Congress, he can get the funding through “reprogramming.”

Here's what we know about the garbage, new compromise on border security and President Trump's effort to build the wall and keep the government open.

A bipartisan congressional committee has agreed to allocate a whopping $1.375 billion for new border wall construction. That figure pales in comparison to the president's request for $5.7 billion, and it would only fund approximately 55 miles of new wall along a 2,000-mile border. Even worse, if Democrats try to put a lot of restrictions on wall construction, this is not a bill the president will be able to sign.

"I have to study it," President Trump said Tuesday of the compromise. "I'm not happy about it. It's not doing the trick."

SEAN HANNITY: THE REAL REASON DEMS FIGHT BORDER SECURITY, SEEK TO ABOLISH ICE

I'm not happy either, nor should you be. This compromise is typical of the D.C. sewer and swamp, and the proposed level of funding for security and the safety of the American people is pathetic. It's almost as if lawmakers in Washington, from the comfort of their own walled homes, don't realize the horrors of sex trafficking, young girls forced into prostitution, human trafficking and drugs. It's almost as if they just don't care.

In the past two years alone, illegal immigrant criminals have been responsible for approximately 100,000 assault charges, 30,000 sexual assault crimes, and 4,000 murders and homicides. On Monday, 330 illegal immigrants, including many unaccompanied minors, were apprehended west of El Paso, where there's no border wall. It is almost as if our lawmakers don't care about the Angel Moms and Dads whose children have been senselessly killed by people who crossed our borders illegally.

It would be perfectly reasonable for President Trump to reject this bill, but there may be another, even better solution. Step one: The president signs the deal, and uses the $1.375 billion as a downpayment for the wall. Step two: President Trump has identified some $900 million for additional construction that is already available for the administration's discretion. That would bring the pot to about $2.3 billion. Step three: This needs to happen simultaneously, and it has the president declaring a national emergency. This is the time.

I believe the president, who I know well, telegraphed that very thing on Tuesday when he indicated a common plan to find other monies, on top of whatever Congress gives him. That would allow the administration to access to billions more in wall funding.

Declaration of a national emergency would be challenged. Democrats will go looking for a friendly federal judge in California or Oregon or Hawaii, and then they'll go to the Ninth Circuit. Ultimately, I think the president is on very firm legal ground, given the national security risks that are stemming from a porous southern border.

Additionally, the president has even further authority, which the Supreme Court will likely recognize. The executive branch has the authority to fund construction of roads and fences and the installation of lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries of the United States.

Despite what the haters on both sides of the aisle are telling you, President Trump is tenacious, and he will fight to get that wall built.

Look for Democrats to continue to say 'Medieval' walls are "immoral," and that President Trump and his supporters "fear" brown people. For the Democrats, this is all one big political game. For President Trump, it is about our safety and security.

The man who appears to be in charge of the Republican Party, Sean Hannity, has issued a new warning to Republicans in Congress. After the details of a border security funding compromise was leaked late last night the Fox News personality said:

“On this new, so-called compromise, I’m getting details. $1.3 billion? That’s not a — not even a wall, a barrier?”

“I’m going to tell this tonight and we will get back into this tomorrow. Any Republican that supports this garbage compromise, you will have to explain.”

“Look at this crowd. Look at the country. Look at CBS News, even they say 72 percent of the American people want the heroin to stop, the cartels to stop, the gang members to stop, and those that wish us ill.”

In his comments Hannity was referring to the agreement reached by a bipartisan conference committee last night that would provide funding for border security. The bill reportedly would allocate $1.375 billion for physical barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border, but no money for a wall.

Rep. @NitaLowey on the agreement in principle to avert a government shutdown that would include $1.375 billion for physical barriers: “This is not a wall. This is a barrier. These are fences.” https://t.co/6HQlTl2l32 pic.twitter.com/tBGZJ2H9pK

On CNN this morning, Alisyn Camerota laughed off the idea that Trump would stand up to Hannity on the issue of border security, calling it “crazy talk.”

During a panel discussion about the bipartisan compromise CNN’s John Berman said he thought that Trump will just sign off on the new deal and ignore the angry rants of Fox News personalities. The CNN host said:

“The president does have an option, which is to stand up to Sean Hannity. That is always available to him. He doesn’t have to do what Sean Hannity says here. He could say, ‘We’re getting this barrier, it’s better for the 800,000 federal workers if they get paid.’”

“Stop your crazy talk!” Camerota said immediately, laughing.

“I know, I know it’s crazy talk,” Berman admitted.

CNN White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny then said that lawmakers should be nervous if Trump takes a long time to announce his decision on whether to sign the compromise bill because that means he’s spent a lot of time watching Fox News’ angry reaction to it.

Also appearing on CNN, committee chair Nita Lowey said she thought the congressional negotiators had come up with a good deal.

“This is a compromise. No one got everything they wanted, but it does secure the border, it does represent our values,” Rep. @NitaLowey, one of four lead bipartisan negotiators who say they reached an agreement in principle to avert a shutdown.”

Democrats have been up to their old tricks, once again playing politics to torpedo border security talks with an outrageous demand aimed at curtailing the effectiveness of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

We know Democrats want to abolish ICE in the end, but over the weekend, we learned their negotiators were pushing for an arbitrary cap of 16,500 on the number of illegal immigrants that ICE would be allowed to detain at one time. In other words, if capacity exceeds that number for any reason, unvetted, unverified, undocumented illegal immigrants would essentially pour free into the United States and border enforcement would be powerless to stop them. Those with violent track records, gang ties, cartel ties would all be free to enter the country illegally and not face any kind of immigration detention.

In the last two years alone, 266,000 arrests of criminal aliens have been carried out, including approximately 100,000 on assault charges, 30,000 for sex crimes charges and 4,000 for murder. Right now, nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants live in the U.S. in defiance of court-ordered removal, including some of those violent felons.

Suppose we cap ICE detentions at 16,500, and No. 16,501 turns out to be a murderer, a rapist or member of a drug cartel. Are Democrats really saying to let that person walk?

President Trump is calling for more funding, resources and security to tackle the scourges of drugs, gang violence, human trafficking, sex trafficking of the young girls and more, while Democrats fight to defund sensible border security. It’s a life-and-death issue, and your family's safety and security must come first.

We know what is driving Democrats. It is pure politics and their hatred of President Trump. That is more important to them, based on their actions, than your security, your family security, more important than DACA, Dreamers and even furloughed employees that they claim to care so much about.

Just a few short years ago, during Obama's second term, these same Democrats were advocating the same policies President Trump is now pushing. As Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put it, in the Democratic Party's radical extremist wing is now running the show.

“This is a poison pill that no administration, not this one, not the previous one, would or should ever accept," McConnell said of the proposed cap on ICE detentions. "Imagine the absurdity of this. The House Democrats want to set a limit on how many criminal aliens our government can detain. This is where some Democrats are. A get-out-of-jail-free card for criminals because the radical left doesn't like U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

For months, we have watched as the extreme left has consumed the Democratic Party. Now, their open borders agenda is playing out in real time. But Americans are waking up and waking up very, very quickly to how extreme this new Democratic Socialist party really is.

Maybe that is why the president's approval rating has reached a two-year high. And why, after the State of the Union, a CBS Evening News poll found that 72 percent of the American people approved of the president's remarks about immigration.

Republicans, especially in the Senate, must take a stand. Do your job, fulfill your promises and stop being so afraid. If you cannot do that, then it's probably time for you to retire and let somebody who is willing to fight take your place.

If Democrats continue to stonewall, play politics with our national security and with drugs coming into the country, the president will have no choice but to declare a national emergency. As commander-in-chief, the president has a lot of perfectly legal options for building the wall, including statutory authority to complete the “construction of roads, and fences, and installation of lighting” to stop drug smuggling corridors across the international boundaries of the United States.

Congress has two options: Agree on a compromise that doesn't weaken border security, or do nothing. Either way, the wall is going to be funded and it’s going to be built by a president who is unrelenting, tenacious and who will do everything in his power to keep his promise, even if it means declaring a national emergency.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News Channel Host Sean Hannity Tuesday evening that “many” people who lied to investigators will be criminally referred to the Justice Department after attorney general nominee William Barr is confirmed.

A partial transcript is as follows:

REP. DEVIN NUNES: We’re going to work with the [House] Judiciary Committee and the [House] Oversight Committee, Sean, to ensure that this investigation into FISA abuse and other matters continues. The good thing is we got through about 15 interviews last year, the task for did, you covered it extensively on your show. We are going to continue to call people in for interviews. Just last week, the new chairman of the committee said that he is going to reopen the Russia investigation. We offered about a dozen subpoenas of people that we wanted to subpoena. We don’t expect for them to subpoena the people that we want, but at every attempt that we can, at every opportunity that we get, we will make attempts to subpoena these people to come in and speak. We will also ask for people to voluntarily come in and speak. Look, we need the new attorney general to get in there and then we will be making criminal referrals on many people who lied to Congress and did other bad things.

SEAN HANNITY: Does that mean we can be expecting pre-dawn raids with amphibious vehicles, frogmen, SWAT teams of 27, all of this to arrest one guy on a process crime? Is that what’s going to happen to Democrats? In other words, aren’t there a list of well-known people that served in the Obama administration that lied under oath?

REP. NUNES: I’m not asking anyone to be Roger Stone’d, which I think is now a verb, now. But, I am expecting people to be held accountable. If you’re going to bust people for lying to Congress, then we need to bust everyone for lying to Congress. Look, we’re just the House side. My guess is on the Senate side there are many people that some of the same people probably lied over there, so they should also be doing the same.

“An explosive account of the biggest scandal in American history, and the political players that tried to pull it off.”—Sean Hannity

The comprehensive story of how the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton campaign, and foreign entities tried to sabotage the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election.

Everyone has an opinion about whether or not Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. The number of actors involved is staggering, the events are complicated, and it’s hard to know who or what to believe. Spygate bypasses opinion and brings facts together to expose the greatest political scandal in American history.

Former Secret Service agent and NYPD police officer Dan Bongino joins forces with journalist D.C. McAllister to clear away fake news and show you how Trump’s political opponents, both foreign and domestic, tried to sabotage his campaign and delegitimize his presidency. By following the names and connections of significant actors, the authors reveal:

Why the Obama administration sent a spy connected to the Deep State into the Trump campaign

How Russians were connected to the opposition research firm hired by the Clinton campaign to find dirt on Trump

How the FBI failed to examine DNC computers after they were hacked, relying instead on the findings of a private company connected to the DNC and the Obama administraton

Why British intelligence played a role in building the collusion narrative

What role Ukrainians played in legitimizing the perception that Trump was conspiring with the Russians

How foreign players in the two events that kickstarted the Trump-Russia collusion investigation were connected to the Clinton Foundation, and

In Tuesday's State of the Union address, we heard President Trump issue what was one of the most single most inspiring challenges to the country and a list of successes, that, frankly, is unprecedented over a two-year period under his leadership.

Now, the never-Trumpers were wrong. The mainstream media was -- and is -- wrong. Democrats were wrong. And two years into the Trump presidency, the state of our great country, our union, is incredibly strong and getting better every day. The president has governed, as I told you he would, as a conservative. He has kept his promises. He listed them. He's upheld the principles that have made this the greatest, freest, most prosperous country on Earth, as those of us that knew him said he would.

CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM SEAN HANNITY.

For Trump, it's not about Republican or Democrat. It is about "We, the People," the United States of America. "I ask you to choose greatness," he said. An agenda for America, and now we're all reaping many of the benefits. 5.3 million new jobs. 600,000 new jobs in the manufacturing sector alone. Jobs we were told were never coming back. The economy is breaking records, and hitting on all cylinders, despite a constant stream of what is pure hatred from the hate-Trump media and their allies in the Democratic Party.

A new poll for Rasmussen shows the president's approval rating at a strong 48 percent. It is no accident, halfway through his first term, President Trump's pro-growth, conservative, pro-energy, low regulation policies are kicking this country into high gear and righting America's ship after what were eight, long, disastrous economic years under Obama. We saw the lowest labor participation rate since the 1970s in those eight years. Approximately 95 million Americans out of the workforce -- the worst recovery since the '40s and stagnant GDP growth. The only president never to hit 3 percent. That was Obama.

Instead of imposing strict government controls like his predecessor, President Trump, in less than two years, has given power back to you, the American people. He's opened up freedom and liberty and unleashed American greatness once again. The president has signed a record, historic low, tax cut. He's ended hundreds of burdensome government regulations, opened up oil and natural gas expansion, approved new pipelines. We are now energy-independent, and the world's largest producer of oil and natural gas. He also has negotiated new trade deals with Mexico and Canada that benefit America. And for the first time in many years, manufacturing jobs are back with a vengeance.

Let's not forget the president nominated and he confirmed two highly qualified originalists, conservative Supreme Court justices who will uphold our constitutional values for decades to come. Dozens of other originalist federal judges have also been confirmed. The president signed sweeping new criminal justice legislation into law. Little Rocket Man is no longer firing rockets over the Sea of Japan. Our hostages are home. The remains of our soldiers from the '50s are now back.

Instead of imposing strict government controls like his predecessor, President Trump, in less than two years, has given power back to you, the American people. He's opened up freedom and liberty and unleashed American greatness once again.

A new summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is now scheduled for Feb. 27 in Vietnam. China's economy is now feeling the heat with new trade restrictions. Russia is being held in check with a series of sanctions. The U.S. embassy in Israel has been relocated to Jerusalem, something so many other presidents promised and never delivered on. And ISIS is on the run.

Needless to say, it has been a very busy and productive two years. Despite this tremendous success, Democrats in attendance at the State of the Union seemed pretty miserable. Grimacing, scowling, sitting on their hands, refusing to stand up, applaud the historically strong state of our union. After eight years of Obama's economy, we had 13 million more Americans on food stamps, eight million more in poverty. And now, we have five million fewer people on food stamps and nd many millions out of poverty. And Democrats refuse to give President Trump credit for anything.

Meanwhile, what are the Democrats offering you -- we the people? Higher taxes, judicial obstruction, open borders, eliminating ICE. They want to keep the disaster of ObamaCare. They want endless investigations into the president and an insane quest for impeachment. This is literally the party of hate -- hate Trump, every second, every minute, every hour, of every day.

As we saw with immigration, with the Democrats, hating Trump is more important than helping the American people and doing their job.

As we watch the extreme radical left, it's really important that you ask yourself some questions.

Do you want the government to have more control over your daily life or less? Do you want the government to take more of your hard-earned money or less? Do you want the government to be more involved in your business or less involved? Do you want the government to have more control -- or total control -- of your health care or less? And do you believe the government has a duty to protect your borders from heroin, fentanyl traffickers, human traffickers, cartels, gangs, and the criminal elements -- not the good people that want a better life --- that come to our borders and access our country illegally?

Because now, it is perfectly clear, that the lines have been drawn. Nearly every single elected Democrat -- almost all of those who want to challenge President Trump in 2020 -- want more and more total control of your life. They don't trust you, the American people. Remember, they think we are irredeemable, deplorable, that we cling to our God, our guns, our Bibles, and religion. We are the smelly Walmart people. Now, they want control of everything.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE ENTIRE EPISODE.

It's actually beyond radical and extreme; it's scary. It's a failed ideology that's been tried over and over. It creates dependency.

They have made promises that never come true, have never come close to what they promise. And even worse, the people that are promising this great stuff -- keep your doctor, save money -- they really only want power for themselves.

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. and far left Sen. Ed Markey are now set to unveil what they call their so-called "Green New Deal" legislation. This bill will dictate how you heat your home, cook your meals, and even how you commute to work. By the way, we just became the number one producer of oil on the planet, surpassing Saudi Arabia and Russia. All fuel and gas, fossil fuels -- we will not have them in 10 years under this Green New Deal. That is not just socialism. That is authoritarianism.

In fact, according to previous proposals, Ocasio-Cortez wants this country to literally nationalize enormous, profitable, private industry -- kill it off completely. That means all the millions of high-paying career jobs in the oil and gas and energy sector, guess what? Gone. It will force every American to pay drastically more for all forms of expensive energy, the lifeblood of our economy.

Actually, the future humanity faces far more risks from the authoritarian far-left socialists. Look at Venezuela. Oh, they have a lot of energy, but they don't have any money or food and poverty is rampant. Let's see, Cuba -- they didn't do too well there, either. The former Soviet Union? Oh. Communist China, how is that working out?

But according to Ocasio-Cortez, if the federal government doesn't take dramatic, authoritarian action, the world is going to end in 12 years. Well, that only gives us two years of our plan. Why bother? Anyway, she actually thinks the future of humanity is at risk because of energy independence. We have more energy. We can help our allies, our friends and create millions of high-paying jobs for Americans. We've tried your way before, Ocasio-Cortez. It doesn't work.

Actually, the future humanity faces far more risks from the authoritarian far-left socialists. Look at Venezuela. Oh, they have a lot of energy, but they don't have any money or food and poverty is rampant. Let's see, Cuba -- they didn't do too well there, either. The former Soviet Union? Oh. Communist China, how is that working out?

Look at what life is like in literally any country that nationalizes private industry and imposes a strict government controls over private businesses. But that is not stopping Democratic presidential hopefuls like Elizabeth Warren from declaring that capitalism can be good, but only if the government has more control. And only if she and her fellow Democrats have a chance to impose even more rules and regulations.

A lot of people risk a lot of money to start businesses. No help necessarily. They create goods and services that people want, need, and desire, and they either buy it or they don't. That has created a standard of living that is the envy of the world, while the unimaginable in most places on this Earth.

With all the people we know who lied to Congress – former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, ex-CIA Director John Brennan, the folks who lied to the FISA court and years of scandals like Fast and Furious, IRS targeting conservatives and Hillary Clinton's missing emails, it's good to know the feds finally got their man.

Roger Stone, who is being charged not with Russia collusion, but the process crime of lying to Congress, was targeted for the same reason U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis said they went after Paul Manafort and the same reason they tried to bankrupt Gen. Michael Flynn. They want to put the screws to Stone, who is 66, to make him sing or compose against Trump. That’s the only reason.

Otherwise, why would you arrest him? If it was really for lying to Congress, he'd be near the back of a long line.

Last week's pre-dawn raid on Stone home in Fort Lauderdale featured 17 vehicles, including armored tactical trucks. There were 27 heavily armed agents – I don’t blame them, they don’t have a choice when they’re told to do something - in tactical gear with weapons drawn.

For lying to Congress?

Stone got the same treatment as Manafort and Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen. All the other people who lied to Congress or to FISA judges got a pass. Roger Stone committed no violent crime. He’s not a drug dealer or a drug kingpin. He’s not a Mafioso or a gangster. He’s not El Chapo. He may have lied to Congress.

All the feds had to do was call his lawyer and say, "Be at police headquarters for processing at 9 a.m. or we’re putting a warrant out for your arrest," and he would have shown up.

Hillary Clinton and her cronies ignored subpoenas for emails, wiped her hard drive with BleachBit and smashed phones to pieces to avoid turning them over. Do you think you would get away with that? You might, if you could help the Depp State with its witch hunt for President Trump.

There’s a danger here. We are a democratic republic. The Constitution that we cherish so much is the foundation of all law and order in this country. If you don’t apply the laws equally, only going after one group of people because of their political views, and you protect people with other political views, you’ve lost our Constitution. We've lost our country.

Without equal application of our laws and equal justice under the law, there's one thing left to say to our great nation: Goodbye.

Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity was fired up Wednesday after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam made controversial comments regarding third-trimester abortions on a radio show.

“This Democratic Party has become so radical, so extreme, so rigid,” Hannity said on the debut of his new Fox Nation show, “Hannity On Air.”

“I don’t really talk about abortion a lot. To me this is not about abortion,” Hannity said.

Northam appeared on WTOP radio Wednesday to discuss his state’s controversial abortion bill ,which seeks to repeal a ban on third-trimester abortions.

“So in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen, the infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam said on the show.

Conservatives were outraged by the comments and Hannity was shocked.

“Honest people can disagree on the controversial topic of abortion,” Hannity told his audience. “When it gets to the point that the baby can live on its own ... that defines innocence. This defines us as a country, in my opinion.”

“Attempts to extrapolate these comments otherwise is in bad faith and underscores exactly why the governor believes physicians and women, not legislators, should make these difficult and deeply personal medical decisions,” Northam’s communication director, Ofirah Yheskel, said.

Hannity continued to take on Governor Northam and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who recently supported loosening abortion restrictions.

“How as a country do we reconcile what is now infanticide and a party in America making it a top priority?” Hannity asked.

An item in the indictment of Roger Stone states that in August, 2016, Jerome Corsi urged Stone to “start suggesting” Hillary Clinton was feeble and had had a stroke. It just so happens that’s exactly what Sean Hannity did shortly thereafter. Was Hannity caught up in the Russia conspiracy to win the election for Trump? We don’t know yet.

Item 13 c., beginning on Page 4 of the indictment states (with my emphases added):

On or about August 2, 2016, Person 1 emailed STONE. Person 1 wrote that he was currently in Europe and planned to return in or around mid-August. Person 1 stated in part, “Word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps. One shortly after I’m back. 2nd in Oct. Impact planned to be very damaging.” The phrase “friend in embassy” referred to the head of Organization 1. Person 1 added in the same email, “Time to let more than [the Clinton Campaign chairman] to be exposed as in bed w enemy if they are not ready to drop HRC. That appears to be the game hackers are now about. Would not hurt to start suggesting HRC old, memory bad, has stroke – neither he nor she well. I expect that much of next dump focus, setting stage for Foundation debacle.”

Person 1 is believed to be Corsi; Organization 1 is obviously Wikileaks.

Coincidentally, Hannity began baselessly suggesting Clinton had suffered a stroke and was suffering from seizures less than a week later.

My earliest indication is on August 8, 2016, when Hannity cited a Drudge Report headline, “detailing Hillary Clinton's history with falls and speculating that the former Secretary of State could be experiencing a serious undisclosed medical condition.”

Two nights later, on August 10, Hannity unsuccessfully pressed two medical doctors to diagnose Clinton as having suffered seizures, based on her behavior with a group of reporters in a video. “This looks like violent, out of control movements on her part,” Hannity insisted. One of those reporters in the video, AP’s Lisa Lerer, later came forward to say that she thought Clinton was deliberately exaggerating her response for comic effect, not having any kind of health problem. She also noted that nobody from Fox had ever asked for her eyewitness account.

On September 7, 2016, Hannity had better luck getting Herman Cain to diagnose Clinton. “This shows that [Clinton’s] staff is pushing her out there despite her physical condition. She needs to get medical help,” “Dr.” Cain asserted.

On September 14, 2016, Hannity sought medical diagnoses from two anti-Clinton authors. One, a former Secret Service agent who wrote a discredited anti-Clinton book, said he’s an “expert on observation” and on “Secret Service procedures” and, therefore, a video clip of Clinton stumbling into a van “disturbs me greatly.” “You’re saying there’s something seriously wrong with her,” Hannity said eagerly. The other guest, discredited Hillary-hater Ed Klein, claimed “friends and associates” had told him that Clinton “frequently faints or swoons” and that is “just the tip of the iceberg of something that’s been going on for a long time.”

On September 23, 2016, Hannity played some of his favorite video clips and said to his political panel, “She seems unhinged! … What is that? … “I think there’s something wrong here … Watch all of a sudden her head twitching and twitching and twitching.”

On September 25, 2016, Hannity fruitlessly prodded Newt Gingrich to diagnose Clinton: “Watch this twitching that she does! One, four, five, six and does it again! ….Boom, boom, boom! … Add that to the deep-vein thrombosis, the cerebral venal thrombosis. Add that to her collapse and all the other health issues she’s had. What do you think’s going on here?”

On August 15, 2016, Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald condemned Hannity’s behavior in a column titled, “SEAN HANNITY: APOLOGIZE TO THOSE WITH EPILEPSY, OR BURN IN HELL.” Eichenwald, an epileptic himself, noted that Clinton’s behavior in no way resembled a seizure and condemned Hannity for promoting falsehoods about what a seizure might look like. Even worse was Hannity’s suggestion that someone with epilepsy was unfit for the presidency.

So it was no surprise that the passage about Clinton’s health in the Stone indictment also caught Eichenwald’s attention. In a series of tweets yesterday, he argued that, whether wittingly or unwittingly, Hannity became part of the Russian conspiracy to elect Trump.

Eichenwald highlighted how that August email, in which Corsi urged Stone to start “suggesting HRC old, memory bad, has stroke” was in preparation for a damaging October document dump that was expected to focus on Clinton’s health. However, it’s not at all clear that Hannity knew what Wikileaks was up to, much less the machinations of Russia.

It seems quite possible to me that someone on the Trump team merely told Hannity they wanted to target Hillary about her health and he happily complied or that he merely adopted the strategy as his own, after seeing it on Drudge first.

However, it’s also quite possible that Hannity knew what was going on, at least to some extent, and was a willing participant.

In any event, if Fox didn’t see a need to provide a full explanation of Hannity’s relationship with Trump and the Trump campaign previously, the Stone indictment ought to be a wake up call that the network better get to it now.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday issued a blistering statement, hours after FBI agents arrested President Trump’s long-time ally Roger Stone.

“The indictment of Roger Stone makes clear that there was a deliberate, coordinated attempt by top Trump campaign officials to influence the 2016 election and subvert the will of the American people,” Pelosi said.

She continued: “In the face of 37 indictments, the President’s continued actions to undermine the Special Counsel investigation raise the questions: what does Putin have on the President, politically, personally or financially?”

“The Special Counsel investigation is working, and the House will continue to exercise our constitutional oversight responsibility and ensure that the Special Counsel investigation can continue free from interference from the White House,” Pelosi added.

Several charges were filed against Stone, including witness tampering and false statements.

He was “charged as part of the special counsel investigation over his communications with WikiLeaks, the organization behind the release of thousands of stolen Democratic emails during the 2016 campaign,” reports the New York Times.

Reacting to the development, Trump tweeted: “Greatest Witch Hunt in the History of our Country! NO COLLUSION! Border Coyotes, Drug Dealers and Human Traffickers are treated better.”

A fired up “Life, Liberty & Levin” host Mark Levin slammed liberal mainstream media members as “intellectually corrupt” who commit “yellow journalism” to harm President Trump.

Levin joined Sean Hannity to discuss the recent examples of mainstream media rushing to judgment in order to condemn Trump and his supporters following the BuzzFeed and Covington debacles.

MEDIA TREATMENT OF COVINGTON STUDENTS ‘WAY WORSE’ THAN KAVANAUGH COVERAGE, CRITIC SAYS

“What a mess,” Levin told Hannity. “Poll after poll. Survey after survey shows that the media are liberal and Democrat. And they don’t disappoint liberals and Democrats.”

Levin said they have “a groupthink mentality,” and noted the lack of uniformed, required standards among news outlets.

“No clear line between news and opinion. This is an opinion show, I give an opinion… you give an opinion,” Levin said of “Hannity.”

Levin said “news is different” and that there are “no universal rules of professional conduct for journalists” despite other professions such as lawyers and doctors being expected to follow particular guidelines. He then named NBC’s Chuck Todd, CNN’s Chris Cuomo and ABC’ George Stephanopoulos as examples of “Democrat hacks” who are working as journalists.

“No commitment to objectivity and that’s the bottom line. No commitment to truth-telling. The result is old fashioned yellow journalism,” he said. “Scandalous, sensational, intellectually corrupt.”

The “Life, Liberty & Levin” host said mass media was committed to Hillary Clinton but has pivoted to “ousting” President Trump.

“They’re sloppy, they misreport, they don’t care, they figure they’ll throw out an apology is they must. They try to destroy the president, his family, anybody associated with him, his staff, Kavanaugh, anything,” Levin said. “They have never treated liberal Democrats this way.”

Published  2 months ago

Mark Levin, host of "LevinTV," has a theory about the rise of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to political prominence — and he knows exactly how to test his hypothesis.

What are the details?

Speaking with Sean Hannity on Fox News Tuesday, Levin, responding to Democrats' leftward movement with the rise of open socialists like Ocasio-Cortez, challenged the young lawmaker to an interview.

"Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, please come on my Fox show on Sunday. I want to talk to you. I want to talk to you about capitalism versus Marxism and socialism. I want to talk to you about some of your ideas," Levin said. "I know you go to these slobbering interviews and so forth. I promise to be respectful. Have enough guts and enough intelligence."

"My theory, Sean Hannity, is this: She is a media creation," he explained. "That's all she is. And let some conservatives who will treat her with respect interview her."

Levin was directly responding to Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70 percent top marginal tax rate, which she contends is necessary for America's wealthiest individuals because they live in "excess."

In a recent interview, she said, "What kind of a society do we want to live in ... do we want to have these folks with helipads in the same city, in the same society as people who are working 80-hour weeks and can't feed their kids?"

What else did Levin say?

Ocasio-Cortez believes the federal government is well-suited to handle the accumulation of additional revenue, which many critics claim would ultimately devolve into redistribution of wealth. But Levin took issue with Ocasio-Cortez's suggestion, citing excessive federal government waste.

"So where is all this money going to go? Seventy percent tax bracket? Who is going to decide who gets what? The Department of Agriculture? The Department of Energy? The EPA? These people waste a $125 billion a year according to the [Government Accountability Office]," he said.

In the end, Levin questioned why Americans should trust Ocasio-Cortez or other socialist lawmakers like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) with crucial economic decisions that have monumental societal impacts.

"What has Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez created? Any job? Part-time job? How about Bernie Sanders? What have they created?" Levin asked.

"What does she know exactly? Nothing. Go to the supermarket, that's capitalism. Twenty different types of bread, 30 different types of wine from all over the world, five different types of fish — I can't even tell what fish. Go to the supermarket. Look at all the different things you get," Levin said. "We live better than kings and queens lived a 150 to 200 years ago. Look at all the things around you. That's created by capitalism — capitalism and freedom, individualism, the American people."

But for the likes of Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders, Levin charged they are concerned only with "power, power, power, edicts, fiats."

Americans do not like big authoritarian, centralized government and two million bureaucrats pushing them around. So why do we confer health care upon them?

What does she know exactly? Nothing. Go to the supermarket, that's capitalism. Twenty different types of bread, thirty different types of wine from all over the world, five different types of fish -- I can't even tell what fish. Go to the super market. Look at all the different things you get.

Fox News

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders derided New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's recent claim that the world will end in 12 years due to climate change, and suggested the Trump administration has little need for the progressive firebrand's thoughts in general, in an exclusive interview Tuesday night with Fox News' "Hannity."

"I don't think we're going to listen to her on much of anything -- particularly not on matters we're gonna leave in the hands of a much, much higher authority -- and certainly, not listen to the freshman congresswoman on when the world may end," Sanders said.

Speaking at an event commemorating Martin Luther King Day on Monday, Ocasio-Cortez asserted that climate change constituted "our World War II" and added: “Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is, how are we gonna pay for it?'"

A United Nations report on climate change warned late last year that the world will face several consequences from climate change – extreme drought, food shortages and deadly flooding – unless there’s an “unprecedented” effort made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

Then, in November, the Trump administration released a federal report that found that the impacts of climate change are being felt across the country, and “extreme weather and climate-related events” are going to worsen in the years to come -- with a significant possible impact on the economy by the end of the century.

Some conservative commentators have argued that most proposed solutions would do more harm than good, and also have accused climate activists of crying wolf. In 2006, a NASA scientist and leading global warming researcher declared that the world had only 10 years to avert a climate catastrophe. Meantime, President Trump repeatedly has cast doubt on the risks posed by global warming, despite the report from his administration.

‘‘Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold," Trump tweeted on Sunday. "Amazing how big this system is. Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!’’

In 2012, Trump famously wrote: "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."

Now, Sanders said, the attention should be on pressing matters like the ongoing partial federal government shutdown over funding for Trump's proposed border wall.

"We're focused on what's happening in the world right now," Sanders told host Sean Hannity. "We wish that Democrats like herself would engage in that conversation, help us fix some of the current problems we know exist, and work with us to get some things done -- particularly ono the border, fixing the national and humanitarian crisis."

Sanders added, in an apparent reference to God: "That's the kind of stuff we're focused on, not things we're gonna leave up to the hands of something and someone much more powerful than any of us."

The president himself seemingly has little patience for Ocasio-Cortez. Asked last week outside the White House for his response to Ocasio-Cortez's claim that there is "no question" he is a racist, Trump responded simply: "Who cares?"

"Life, Liberty & Levin" host Mark Levin said on "Hannity" that the Buzzfeed report disputed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller was the latest example of "yellow journalism" by a media outlet trying to take down the president.

Sean Hannity said the documented "pages" of unconfirmed reporting that have been published by various news outlets critical of Trump is "hurting the country."

"It's all intended to drive toward impeachment," Levin responded.

He added that reports like the one in Buzzfeed, which claimed President Trump told Michael Cohen to commit perjury, are "dragging down the Republic by dragging down our president."

Levin added that it was curious that the statement by Mueller, through spokesman Peter Carr, came as he was hosting his nightly radio program and discussing the special counsel probe.

On Monday morning, Fox and friends apologize for running a graphic suggesting that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had died.

As you will see in the video below, just as the morning show have returned from break, a solemn graphic appeared on the screen of Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg signaling her that she had passed away. It was quickly removed after a few seconds.

Host Steve Doocy then apologized for the huge mistake the network had made later in the show. Here’s my thinking, how idiotic is this? We all know something is going on with Ginsburg and honestly, she might not make it but jumping the gun is not cool.

CNN just got trounced over the coals because of their Friday reporting of the Buzzfeed “bombshell,” that had turned out to be a dud, especially when Special Counsel Robert Mueller called out the news publication for their inaccuracies.

Is Fox and Friends trying to take the lead in fake news now? They have already inundated themselves with so many opinion voices that didn’t support Donald Trump during the GOP primary that turned themselves into Trump supporters for TV times on the network, are they really going toward the fake news angles?

Like a false prophet of moral righteousness, James Comey, former FBI director is constantly pretending to be a courageous hero fighting for truth and justice. In reality, he is a hateful, vengeful, arrogant narcissist who abused power and fostered one of the most corrupt federal departments this country has ever seen. But we can report the walls are closing in on James Comey.

We have, yet, another major development in our "Hannity Watch" on the "Deep State." Former FBI general counsel James Baker, the man who served as Jim Comey's top lawyer, he, too, like others. is now criminal investigation for leaking to the media. And Baker has long faced scrutiny over his ties to "Mother Jones" reporter David Corn. Remember, Corn was the first journalist to report the existence of Christopher Steele's dirty dossier in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election.

So, let's keep track of Comey's leadership at the FBI. You know, Mr. Integrity. Now, of course, we know Comey himself was fired by President Trump. His second in command, Andrew McCabe, was fired for lying. Andrew McCabe is now currently under a criminal investigation. Comey's top investigator, Peter Strzok, well, he was fired for his obvious political bias. He may soon be under criminal investigation, as well as his ex- girlfriend, top FBI lawyer Lisa Page. She was forced to resign over her bias.

Then have you Comey's chief of staff, James Rybicki, he has resigned. And now, we know Comey's general counsel Jim Baker now, we can report, under an official criminal investigation, for something Comey himself that he admitted to doing when he leaked the FBI memos about President Trump. Remember, to his professor friend at Columbia, and then to the New York Times for the very purpose of spurring a special counsel investigation, which coincidentally -- well, that's being carried out by Comey's close friend Robert Mueller. How nice.

So, what did all the people have in common? They all wanted Hillary Clinton to win, one of them 100 million to zero. They all hated -- and continue to hate -- Donald Trump. They all worked together to rig our political system and fix the outcome of the 2016 election by using their powerful top position -- not rank and file -- the top positions, the FBI and the DOJ, to help Hillary Clinton win, to cheat, to rig an election.

And as we now know, they had an emergency policy and a media leak strategy in case Clinton didn't win, 100 million to zero. And after James Comey was fired, top officials inside the FBI were angry. They acted out of that anger, malice, emotion. And without any evidence, no probable cause or reasonable suspicion, they ended up launching what was a partisan investigation into the President of the United States, with a wild conspiracy accusing the president of working with Vladimir Putin to fire Comey because Russia told him to do it. No evidence.

They were angry. This was their punishment. This was their payback -- abusing power to attack the president that they never wanted elected.

Now, this brings us to a "Hannity" history lesson. Glenn Greenwald recently pointed out that the FBI in their investigation into Donald Trump used eerily similar tactics to those pioneered by J. Edgar Hoover. Hoover served as an FBI director for many decades, and he became infamous for his aggressive investigation into Americans who he suspected had ties to the Soviet Union. Hoover even suspected FDR's vice president, Henry Wallace. He conducted a lengthy probe and surveillance simply because Hoover disagreed with Wallace's policy.

The FBI should never be in the business of investigating political differences or policy decisions. They shouldn't be lashing out because of personal opinions that they have. The 99 percent of FBI field agents of rank-and-file do their jobs. They investigate crimes and criminals. Not politics, not policy, and especially not launching a counterintelligence investigation into a duly elected president with zero evidence because you don't like him.

On Tuesday, William Barr, President Trump's pick to be our next attorney general, faced his first day of confirmation hearings on the Hill. Sen. Lindsey Graham grilled him about whether or not he would investigate the FBI's baseless, corrupt investigation into President Trump. "Mr. Chairman. I think there were a number of investigations as I understand it going on in the department," Barr said.

That's a good sign, that William Barr cares about equal justice, equal application of our laws and says he will serve as a fair attorney general. Mr. Barr, there are no shortage of corrupt Trump haters to investigate and many with a lot of power that they have abuse. No shortage of crimes here.

We're going to begin to lay out a road map of corruption for the new attorney general to investigate. Fox News' Gregg Jarrett has compiled a comprehensive list. We're going to start with FISA abuse. That is lying to a FISA court. That is committing a fraud against a court to get a warrant to spy on a Trump campaign associate using Hillary Clinton's bought and paid for phony dossier that was full of Russian lies.

James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates, Rod Rosenstein all likely committed fraud on a FISA court by presenting Hillary Clinton's dirty dossier as unbiased, verified evidence, when reality, it was never verified, never corroborated and full of Russian lies. And they never told the courts that it was bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton.

That's a good sign, that William Barr cares about equal justice, equal application of our laws and says he will serve as a fair attorney general. Mr. Barr, there are no shortage of corrupt Trump haters to investigate and many with a lot of power that they have abuse. No shortage of crimes here.

Next up, Mr. Barr, if you get this job, you need to look into the theft and leaking of government documents. Now, Jim Comey obviously committed a serious crime when he intentionally leaked his FBI memos about his conversations with the president. It's important to also look at abuse of power charges that would be applied to many of the same names: Comey, McCabe, Strzok, all fired. Lisa Page, resigned and shamed. Bruce Ohr, demoted twice - he should have been fired. All using their high positions in our federal government to persecute those they disagreed with politically. All trying to get Hillary Clinton get elected and then having an insurance policy, and a media leak strategy if, in fact, Donald Trump did win.

Let's not forget about lying to the FBI. After all, this crime shouldn't only apply an American war hero like General Flynn and Trump campaign staffer like George Papadopoulos, who just spent two weeks in jail for nothing. Andrew McCabe was literally fired over that charge. Is he going to receive the same treatment as General Flynn and be prosecuted?

Now, the DOJ also will need to tackle the unauthorized leaks. We now know that James Baker is already facing a criminal investigation over this charge. But so, too are we going to look at John Brennan and James Clapper? What about Susan Rice? And what about Samantha Powers? Shouldn't they be investigated over the massive amount of names that they unmasked while serving in the final year of the Obama administration?

And because of James Comey's biased investigation into Hillary Clinton and exoneration before an investigation, there's an obvious violation of the Espionage Act. Mr. Barr must also revisit Hillary Clinton's various crimes, like, deleting subpoenaed emails and deleting your hard drive and washing it with BleachBit and busting up devices and ripping out SIM cards.

Donald Trump Jr. has been sounding the alarm on voices that have largely been silenced by the mainstream media and ignored by top Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): so-called "Angel Parents" — mothers, fathers and family members of those killed at the hands of illegal immigrants.

The oldest Trump son took to social media on Sunday to post a powerful clip of Angel Mother Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son was tragically killed by a drunk-driving illegal immigrant.

Appearing on Fox News' "Hannity," Mendoza was asked by host Sean Hannity if she was pleased with President Donald Trump "holding the line" during the partial government shutdown over wall funding for the southern border.

Mendoza said she was "very happy" with Trump and blasted Pelosi for ignoring her requests to meet with her.

"I would love the opportunity to stand with Nancy Pelosi mother-to-mother and look her in the eye and say, 'Which child of yours, or grandchild of yours would you give up to support this agenda?'" she said, adding, "It's like a slap in our face and a kick to our loved one’s grave every time she does this."

"And I want the public to know, and I want Nancy Pelosi to know: I called her office again today and requested another meeting next week when I'm in D.C. and it was dead silence from her staffer. I said, 'This is Angel mother Mary Ann Mendoza. I'd like to request a meeting face-to-face, mother-to-mother with Nancy Pelosi about this situation.’ Dead silence, and the staffer said, 'No. I'll put you through and you could leave a voicemail.'"

"Why is [Pelosi] ignoring and refusing to meet with these heroic Angel mom's?" asked Don Jr., captioning the video. "The victims of illegal immigration deserve a voice, even if Pelosi and her Democrat friends want to pretend they don't exist."

President Donald Trump reposted his son's Instagram post onto his personal account.

During the same segment, Angel Mother Agnes Gibboney, whose son was murdered by an illegal immigrant gang member in 2002, similarly blasted Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

"I would like to invite Nancy and Chuck Schumer to my son's grave on January 28 so they can celebrate, well not celebrate, cry with me at his ‘manufactured grave,'" Gibboney said, according to Newsweek. "This is permanent family separation. ... How dare she."

"Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are just hypocrites," said Angel Father Steve Ronnebeck, whose son was murdered by an illegal immigrant in 2015.

Don Jr. has since echoed the call for top Democrats and the media to listen to these parents. "A group of heroic Angel families came to Washington, DC today to support building the wall and to tell their tragic stories of how they lost loved ones due to illegal immigration," he posted to Twitter on Tuesday. "Unfortunately, you probably didn't know that, since the #FakeNews media continues to ignore them."

Rudy Giuliani used to insist the Trump campaign had never colluded with Russia. Sure, Russians may have offered to help them in a Trump Tower meeting, but “They never used it,” he told Laura Ingraham in 2018. “They rejected it. If there was collusion with the Russians, they would have used it.” Also, last May, Giuliani told Sean Hannity that “Russian collusion is a total fake news … Mueller owes us a report saying the Russian collusion means nothing it didn’t happen. That means the whole investigation was unnecessary.”

Last July, Giuliani casually noted that “collusion is not a crime.” In an interview with CNN tonight, Giuliani backpedalled again: “I never said there was no collusion between the campaign or between people in the campaign. I have not. I said the president of the United States.”

Sean Hannity told his radio audience today that President Trump is holding “five different buckets” of information that will reveal deep state corruption at the top levels.

If this is true the President better act soon.

Whoever is telling him to hold on to this information is giving him bad advice.

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Comey deserved to be fired. Sally Yates deserved to be fired. A lot, frankly, there are a bunch of people still there that need to be fired. And if we’re going to have equal justice under the law, which I hope the new attorney general will bring, and equal application of our laws, then a lot of things are going to change very very quickly here. And maybe we’re beginning to see the work of John Huber, who was appointed by Jeff Sessions, you know, on leak issues, maybe now that work is coming to fruition. We still have Michael Horowitz, the Inspector General, he is to report back on FISA abuse, we already know that did take place. We know that the president has five different buckets of information that he’s holding, in his hand, that will reveal corruption at levels we never dreamed or we never thought of.

Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory refused to personally condemn the antisemitic statements made by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, despite being asked twice on Monday to do so.

During a segment on ABC’s “The View,” Mallory was pressed on the recent scrutiny surrounding her organization and its reported ties to anti-Semitism — as well as her own statements praising Farrakhan as the “greatest of all time.”

“I didn’t call him the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric but because of what he’s done in black communities,” Mallory explained.

Co-president Bob Bland went on to point out that the Women’s March organization had condemned anti-Semitism, including Farrakhan’s comments, as well as all statements of hate.

And I think it’s important for us to understand and I’ll be very clear in this room that the Women’s March unequivocally condemns anti-Semitism.

We have repeatedly, in statement after statement this year which are available directly on our website for anyone to read, we condemn any statements of hate and we’ve actually been working so hard over the last two years to fight this type of hate over and over again. We’re committed to repairing any harm because we understand that the Jewish community is feeling hurt right now.

But Mallory’s tone and demeanor changed dramatically when she was asked whether she personally would condemn Farrakhan. (RELATED: Marc Lamont Hill Says Louis Farrakhan Is The Equivalent Of Sean Hannity)

Meghan McCain: I don’t speak for Jewish people but I think I’m just confused. These remarks are — I mean, it goes on, ‘death to Israel,’ over and over again.

Mallory: We did not make those remarks.

McCain: But you’re associating with a man who does, publicly.

Mallory: What I will say to you is that I don’t agree with many of Minister Farrakhan’s statements.

McCain: Specifically about Jewish people?

Mallory: As I said, I don’t agree with many of Minister Farrakhan’s statement statements.

McCain: Do you condemn them?

Mallory: I don’t agree with these at the end of the day …

McCain: You won’t condemn it.

Mallory then changed the subject, appearing to argue that forcing her to condemn Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism was somehow sexist and judging her “through the lens of a man.” She concluded, “To be clear, it’s not my — it’s not the way that I speak. It’s not how I organize and I think it’s very clear over the 20 years of my own personal activism —my own personal track record — who I am and that I should never be judged through the lens of a man. That is actually not what this movement is supposed to be about.”

As seen on Watters' World

Rep. Andy Biggs said Saturday night that President Trump is "seriously considering" declaring a national emergency over the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump told Sean Hannity this week he has "the absolute right" to make such a declaration if an agreement cannot be reached with congressional Democrats on funding for his proposed border wall.

We have a massive Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border. We will be out for a long time unless the Democrats come back from their “vacations” and get back to work. I am in the White House ready to sign!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2019

"This is a national emergency, if you look what's happening," Trump said Thursday, during a visit to the border in McAllen, Texas.

Trump's visit to the Lone Star State came just two days after his address to the nation, during which he described the situation at the southern border as a "humanitarian and security crisis."

"The wire's gonna trip soon," Biggs (R-Ariz.) said on Watters' World. "[House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and [Senate Minority Leader Charles] Schumer are not willing to negotiate at all."

'Do It All, Including the Wall': Obama-Era Border Chief Hits Back at 'Absurd' Border Wall Arguments

Biggs said that the "radicals" within the Democrat-controlled House aren't willing to budge on Trump's wall funding plan, and that the situation "is a real crisis."

"President Obama declared [a national emergency] over Swine Flu, for Pete's sake. I'm not saying that to diminish the seriousness of Swine Fflu, but we have people crossing our border by the thousands," he said.

Democrats have refused to approve legislation to fund Trump's long-promised border wall, which eventually led to the partial government shutdown that recently entered its fourth week.

The damage done to our Country from a badly broken Border - Drugs, Crime and so much that is bad - is far greater than a Shutdown, which the Dems can easily fix as soon as they come back to Washington!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 13, 2019

Biggs said that Republicans must "stand firm" behind Trump if he declares a national emergency.

"It is actually a national security crisis because of the people that are coming across," he said. "We can build the wall, but if we're not gonna do it in Congress ... we need to let the president declare that emergency."

US Liberty Wire

Lindsey Graham has had enough of Chuck Schumer and is dropping the hammer on the hapless and obstructionist Democrat.

The fight over the wall is really political theater – make no mistake the left thinks they can break Trump over this and are drawing a line in the sand under the false belief losing this fight will cause his base to leave him.

They think his reputation of being a winner and the fact that he likes to deliver on campaign promises would take such a hit that his base would leave him if he caves on the wall.

Here is what they don’t understand and why Trump will win in the end. One – his base will not leave him if he caves.

But the second reason is more important and shows how bad Schumer is at negotiating.

If these are the stakes – Trump loses everything if he caves while the Democrats lose nothing but a few billion that will take a few years to be spent due to eminent domain issues – then Trump can never nor will never cave. He simply can’t afford to.

The left has created that narrative and while Trump has asked for $5 billion and $2.5 billion the left remains obstinate.

A good deal has to have a little for everyone to get done and with the left hell bent on the total and complete political destruction of Trump, they won’t compromise.

They will not give him a way to exit the shutdown, while he has given them a few by lowering his ask on the wall.

Thus the shutdown is theirs. If you add those facts to what Lindsey just exposed about Chuck and Nancy, the left must come to their sense and reopen the government.

Lindsey told Sean Hannity, “The one thing that we have in common, as a member of the Senate, Speaker of the House, Minority Leader of the Senate, and the President of the United States… we have a bunch of people guarding us with guns. It’s pretty hard to get into the Capitol, really hard to get into the White House.”

“All the President is saying is… I’d like to provide more security to the American people. It is a crisis, Sean,” Lindsey added.

“I’ve tried to be reasonable and practical, but when it comes to immigration, I’m flabbergasted to hear from my Democratic colleagues who have voted for billions of dollars in border security money… that this is manufactured.”

“Was it manufactured when Obama wanted the money? No. Why did you give the money to Obama and Bush if it was a manufactured crisis? Graham asked, referring to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

“To my Democratic friends: how many Caravans have to rush the border until you believe we have a problem?” Graham asked before explaining that there are 300,000 people waiting for asylum claims to be adjudicated, while we are spending $750 a day to take care of the 11,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America we are housing.

“Nancy Pelosi says end the shutdown, Donald Trump says security the border. How about this: let’s secure the border, then end the shut down.” Graham suggested.

“There is a deal to be had here, but it’s hard to get a deal when people you’re dealing with call you racist because you want a border security wall, give you a dollar and say that’s enough, accuse border control agents of gassing children when mobs run toward our border.”

“We’re dealing with pretty radical people here and we’re never going to get a deal until the radicals are set to the side and we get reasonable people to deal with.”

“You know what I think is immoral, trying to accuse people who are trying to defend the nation honestly and working hard and trying to put their lives at risk as being the problem, not the coyote, not the drug dealer, not the terrorist.”

“Democrats want to fight, they’re gonna get one. If they want to solve the problem, we’ll do that too.”

Donald Trump is, once again, trying to paint himself as a victim in his government shutdown. He has done everything in his power to try to pin the whole thing on the Democrats and convince America that he is sacrificing for the good of his country when it’s actually all about his racist wall.

Yesterday as Trump toured the border and had an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, the president whined about all the sacrifices he’s made in his government shutdown because he can’t get any funding for his moronic wall. Once again, he blame the Democrats. Trump said:

I don’t need this! Look, I could have done something a lot easier, I could have enjoyed myself. I haven’t left the White House because I’m waiting for [Democrats] to come over in a long time. You know that.”

During the interview, the president complained about not being able to flee to Florida and spend the holidays with his family, instead forced to work and remain in the White House. Most notably, he was upset that he didn’t get to attend his traditional New Year’s Eve party, where he was selling very expensive tickets for access to him (just one of the many ways Trump has profited off his presidency):

I stayed at the White House during Christmas, I stayed at the White House at New’s Year’s. My family, I told them: Stay in Florida and enjoy yourselves.”

Trump chalked up the Democrats’ reluctance to fund a wall that is a terrible idea to being “about politics.” He said:

It’s about the 2020 campaign. Democrats aren’t feeling too good about it.”

That’s pretty much the only thing Trump can tell himself these days to distract him from confronting the fact that he has no chance for 2020, or his border wall.

LINDSEY GRAHAM: IT'S TIME FOR TRUMP 'TO USE EMERGENCY POWERS TO FUND' BORDER WALL

Trump did not lay out a specific timetable for when he might take such a step, saying: "I think we're going to see what happens over the next few days." However, he appeared to hold out hope for making a deal to secure wall funding and fully reopen the government.

"We should be able to make a deal with Congress," the president said. "If you look, Democrats, in Congress, especially the new ones coming in, are starting to say, ‘Wait a minute, we can’t win this battle with Trump, because of the fact that it’s just common sense. How can we say that a wall doesn’t work?’"

The president spoke to Fox News on the banks of the Rio Grande, where he traveled to argue his claim that a barrier would deter drug and human trafficking into the United States.

"Death is pouring through," Trump said. "We have crime and death and it's not just at the border. They get through the border and they go and filter into the country and you have MS-13 gangs in places like Los Angeles and you have gangs all over Long Island, which we're knocking the hell out of. There should be no reason for us to have to do this. They shouldn't be allowed in and if we had the barrier, they wouldn't be allowed in."

The president said a wall would be "virtually a hundred percent effective and [House Speaker] Nancy [Pelosi] and [Senate Democratic Leader] Chuck [Schumer] know that, but it's politics. It's about the 2020 campaign, it's about running for president. That's what they're doing. They're already doing it. It's a shame. They've got to put the country first."

Democrats repeatedly have refused to approve any legislation to fund the wall. The standoff led to the partial government shutdown, which is set to his the three-week mark Friday.

"Everyone wants us to win this battle," Trump said. "It's common sense ... Look, we’re not going anywhere. We’re not changing our mind because there’s nothing to change your mind about. The wall works [and] if we don't have a steel or concrete barrier, we're all wasting a lot of time."

Rashida Tlaib ran for congress, not to represent Americans, but to represent Islam and anti-Semitism. She just gave a radical speech at a convention for CAIR, a radical Islamic group that was an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation, that raised money for Islamic terrorists. She greeted everyone with the phrase “Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim,” which means, “In the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate.” That line starts every chapter of the Koran, except one and is considered a Muslim war cry. She spoke for 7 minutes and mentioned “Muslim,” “Islam” and “Palestinian” several times, but only once mentioned America once and that was to bash Trump.

After greeting the crowd in Arabic, Rashida Tlaib said, “Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim,” which means, “In the name of Allah, the merciful, the compassionate.”

This very phrase begins every chapter in the Quran except one and is seen as a Muslim war cry.

In fact, this is the very same phrase Bowe Bergdahl’s father said in front of the White House in 2014 after Obama traded Taliban terrorists in exchange for traitor Bergdahl.

Back in 2014, Brigitte Gabriel of Act for America told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that this phrase declares the greatness of Allah over the land, calling it a “war cry of Allah” and a Muslim victory call.

Muslims often try to downplay this victory war cry as an ordinary everyday prayer, however it is seen as a ‘war cry of Allah’ by hardliners.

Rashida Tlaib also invoked Mohammed, the founder of Islam, saying “Mohammed was all about justice. He was all about pushing up against all of the things that you see from slavery from what we see now, if he was here today, he would be stronger and stronger and pushing up against the kind of injustice that we see coming out of the White House.”

Texas Senator Ted Cruz mocked the televised speech Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave in response to President Donald Trump’s Tuesday speech on the need for a border barrier.

During a “Hannity” appearance with fellow Texas Senator John Cornyn, Cruz blamed the government shutdown on Schumer, then joined Fox News host Sean Hannity in poking fun at the minority leader’s speech alongside Speaker Pelosi.

“Their objection isn’t on substance,” said Cruz, referring to Democrats who refused to fund President Trump’s proposed border barrier. “I mean Schumer and the rest of them voted for $40 billion just a few years ago. Their objection is pure politics. They hate the president. Their left wing base hates the president. And Chuck Schumer, this is now the second Schumer shutdown in a year. He forced one earlier because he wanted to see amnesty. He forced the second one because he wants to see open borders and I know you watched the president’s address earlier this week and then Schumer and Pelosi …”

Hannity interrupted, calling the speech “the ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit that followed.”

“If ‘Saturday Night Live’ were remotely fair that will be their opening, but they won’t make fun of Democrats,” Cruz joked. “I promise you they won’t do it.”

Hannity quipped that even with “Saturday Night Live,” it would be “impossible to be that biased.”

“Look, I have got to say though that thing when I saw Schumer and Pelosi, that thing looks like a hostage video,” said Cruz. (RELATED: ‘She’s Scared’ — Ted Cruz Criticizes Pelosi For Wanting To Turn Cameras Off During White House Meeting)

“Hostage videos could be more compelling,” responded Hannity, laughing.

But the Texas junior Senator wasn’t finished. “And I am just about certain if you watch it again in slow motion, Nancy is blinking SOS as Schumer is talking. They know they are in the wrong and the American people know they are in the wrong,” he said.

Cruz wasn’t the first to poke fun at Cruz and Pelosi after their awkward speech.

Democrats are always generous, but with other people's money. But when it now comes to what is a real life or death crisis at our southern border, they are nowhere to be found. In fact, the Democrats, the radical left's new talking point is to call what is death and destruction and chaos, caused by unsecured borders, nothing more than a "manufactured crisis." The first thing you've got to notice is how the hate-Trump Democrats and the hate-Trump media speak in one voice. They have one talking point.

As we promised you at the beginning of the year -- and you will not see on any other network -- we're going on show what you real victims of a crisis at our southern border. Men, women, husbands, wives, children, parents, those are all human beings that have been killed because we have unsecure southern border. They have real names. That includes police officer Ronil Singh. He was gunned down by that illegal immigrant, just after Christmas. And Officer Singh left behind a wife and a 5-month-old baby boy who will never know his father.

Democrats, are you really prepared -- the media, Democratic Party, liberals -- are you going to look at this man's face and tell his family that his death is a manufactured crisis? Where have your hearts gone?

And earlier this week, we interviewed the parents of Pierce Corcoran. He was killed by a suspected illegal immigrant, driving on the wrong side of the highway without a license, without insurance in the country, for 14 years. Are Democrats going to call the Corcorans and tell them what happened to their son is a manufactured crisis?

What about Josh Wilkerson or Dominic Durden or Sergeant Brandon Mendoza or Jamiel Shaw -- I can keep going. Do Democrats really want to you believe this is some grand conspiracy, a manufactured crisis?

Democrats, are you really prepared -- the media, Democratic Party, liberals -- are you going to look at Officer Ronil Singh's face and tell his family that his death is a manufactured crisis? Where have your hearts gone?

Now, we do have "angel" parents, those who have lost their children because of open borders. They are speaking out and they have done so many times in the past. They are reminding some of American's politicians and their best friends in the media that this is not a political gain for them. This is a crisis, a clear and present danger. Real Americans losing real lives, needlessly, and real families suffering -- if you might say a word -- "permanent separation."

Now, I've been to the border, what, 12, 13 times now. Last time I was down with then-Texas Gov. Rick Perry and sat in a security briefing. 642,000 crimes were committed against Texans alone in a seven-year period. In just the past two years alone, 4,000 criminal aliens have been arrested for homicide. In fact, over the past two decades, criminal immigrants have been responsible for tens of thousands of murders.

Now, to these families, our fellow Americans, that crisis is always present. Their lives have been devastated, forever altered, their loved ones murdered. And yet, hate-Trump Democrats, hate-Trump talking point media people, they are to suggest this is a manufactured crisis? Really?

We're talking about an all-too-common occurrence. It should never happen. Law abiding men and women killed by illegal immigrants that don't respect our laws, our sovereignty, our borders. They shouldn't be here at all.

Now, if we secured the borders, lives are going to be saved. People will be protected. There won't be permanent separation, as in the cases we're telling you about.

To those who comment consistently and negatively about the Fox News channel whenever it is mentioned in print, may I ask, What planet are you on?

I began covering the cable news wars, Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, and other topics for American Thinker and other publications 20 months ago. That was barely four months into President Trump's first term. Already at that point, most of the mainstream media, of which Fox News is an outlying part, was ratcheting up its negative coverage of the new president. Two years later now, that coverage has become pretty much intolerable, with CNN and MSNBC in particular almost totally unwatchable due to their constant negative bias against everything Trump.

While its 24-7 programming schedule is not above criticism, Fox News has emerged as the sole exception in all of MSM broadcast and cable news. Its signature nightly news program, Special Report, anchored M-F by Bret Baier, which recently added weekend editions at the same hour, is head and shoulders above the competition on the two other major cable news channels, the broadcast networks, and PBS.

Two additional hours of live news, at 7 and 11 P.M. E.T., hosted by veteran broadcasters Martha MacCallum and Shannon Bream, are also refreshingly fair and objective. Meanwhile, the core of Fox News's prime-time schedule – 8-11 P.M. E.T., with each hour-long show during that time period repeated starting at 12 midnight E.T. – features the most credible, newsmaking, and consistently conservative opinion-dominated shows that Fox News has ever presented.

The prime-time schedule of the "good old days" of the Roger Ailes era of Fox News that some people say they miss, for example five years ago, consisted of Bill O'Reilly at 8 P.M., Megyn Kelly at 9, and Sean Hannity at 10. Hannity was the only reliable conservative of the three. Today, and for the past year-plus, Tucker Carlson Tonight at 8, Hannity at 9, and The Ingraham Angle at 10 are arguably among the best programs Fox News has ever presented.

Since its premiere on November 14, 2016, Tucker Carlson Tonight has quickly evolved into must-see viewing. Carlson's credentials include a twenty-year-long history as a news program host on all three major cable news channels as well as a background as a prolific writer and editor – he co-founded the leading conservative site The Daily Caller in 2010. Carlson's nightly opening monologues and his well informed challenges to a variety of left-wing guests frequently go viral and are as good as anything in print or online.

During the past two years, Hannity, one of President Trump's closest friends, has assembled a regular cast of guests and contributors who have uncovered the web of corruption involving the Obama administration; the Department of Justice; the FBI; and other elements of the Deep State, which has conspired to take down the Trump administration since 2016.

Mark Levin's Sunday night show, Life, Liberty & Levin, is the only long-form one-on-one interview program on all of cable news television. His guests are often conservative thought leaders who immediately command a viewer's attention but who otherwise seldom have an opportunity to present their ideas at length on commercial television.

Early in the mornings, seven days a week, Fox & Friends, one of the closest things to lighter infotainment on the channel's schedule, also stands alone in terms of quality and openness to conservative guests and ideas compared with all of the other morning programs on both cable and broadcast television. The program's hosts are clearly right of center, and it's reportedly one of the president's favorite shows. Fox & Friends' respect for American history and traditions including the military, police officers, and people in flyover states – where a host will often broadcast from remotely – is refreshing.

Finally, two recent long-form investigative series, part of the ongoing Scandalous franchise, were among the best television documentaries in recent times. They shed extensive new light on two scandals – involving the Clintons and the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) – that finally got the detailed review and treatments they deserved.

Nothing is perfect, and one can find fault with some of the other programs on the FNC schedule. A mid-afternoon news show hosted by Sheppard Smith, who seems as though he'd be more at home on CNN, and Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace are two examples. There is also the overabundance of irritating Fox News "contributors" like Jessica Tarlov, Marie Harf, Cathy Areu, and Juan Williams. But they and the other in-house left-wingers never appear without being challenged by an equal or greater number of conservatives.

Tonight, January 10 at 9 P.M. E.T., Hannity will present an exclusive interview with President Donald Trump from McAllen, Texas, where the president is scheduled to visit the border. In the midst of the partial government shutdown over the issue of border security, it promises to be another newsmaking interview. Also on the show will be interviews with Border Patrol and ICE agents. In the past year, President Trump has limited his TV interviews to the Fox News channel.

A complement to Fox News on cable and satellite is Fox News dot com online – a news and opinion site that is one of the most popular news websites in the U.S., second only to CNN's.

For those who insist that they never watch Fox News because it's just another part of the biased and failing MSM, be careful what you wish for. If it drastically changes its current course or somehow disappears from cable TV, I can guarantee that it will be missed.

Speaking earlier Wednesday, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez echoed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s language, telling Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom" that "this whole border security crisis … it really, I believe, is a manufactured crisis."

Nielsen, who met with congressional leaders Wednesday in the Situation Room with President Trump and has played a central role during talks to end a partial federal government shutdown, called that rhetoric disgraceful.

TRUMP WALKS OUT OF EXPLOSIVE WHITE HOUSE MEETING AFTER PELOSI REFUSES TO CONSIDER WALL

The DHS head alluded to the several Americans killed by suspected illegal immigrants that Trump referenced in his Tuesday night prime-time address from the Oval Office, including a California police officer whose death came the day after Christmas.

"It's offensive; it's disrespectful," Nielsen said. "I can't imagine being one of these victims' families and listening to an elected member of Congress claim that their pain and their suffering is manufactured. it's offensive, is what it is. But it's also unprofessional."

Nielsen reiterated the president's messaging that the surging numbers of illegal immigrant families attempting to cross the border represents a humanitarian problem.

"It's not just a security crisis -- it's a humanitarian crisis," Nielsen told host Sean Hannity. "We have Doctors Without Borders saying one in three women on this journey are raped. seven out of 10 of these migrants are victims of violence."

A survey from 2015 to 2016 conducted by Doctors Without Borders that interviewed 467 "randomly sampled migrants and refugees in facilities the organization supports in Mexico" found that "nearly one-third of the women surveyed had been sexually abused during their journey." Among the reported perpetrators were gangs and members of the Mexican security forces.

"Walls work. We can't say it enough."

— Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen

"The facts are incontroverible," Nielsen added. "Anywhere we have built a wall, illegal migration has dropped 90-95 percent. ... Walls work. We can't say it enough."

In a joint, nationally televised rebuttal to Trump's speech Tuesday night, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer condemned Trump's rhetoric and what they called his "obsession" with building a border wall.

"They have no alternative," Nielsen told Hannity, referring to congressional Democrats. "They refuse to engage, and it's very, very disappointing.

"I don't know what the Democrats are doing," Nielsen concluded. "The president has made offers. ... They have come up with no solutions on their own."

Fox News host Mark Levin railed against "pathological liar" Democratic party leaders including Senators Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and former Senator Hillary Clinton for "flip-flopping" on past support of a southern border wall just to spite President Donald Trump in 2019. But did they?

Levin joined Sean Hannity Tuesday evening after Trump's Oval Office address to criticize what they saw as the Democratic Party's seeming about-face regarding support of the border wall and border security. Pelosi and Schumer responded to the president's address by accusing Trump of using a "manufactured crisis" to force U.S. taxpayers to foot the $5 billion bill for the Mexican border wall. Levin, Hannity and Trump's now-acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney have long focused particularly on Democrats' support of the Secure Fence Act of 2006, signed into law by Republican President George W. Bush after passing the Congress with strong bipartisan support.

Then-Democratic Senators Clinton, Schumer, Obama and Biden all supported the less ambitious border proposal in an attempt to "stem some of the tide of illegal immigration" and as a precursor to a potential comprehensive immigration reform bill.

"Let’s keep a few things in mind when you watch Schumer and Pelosi, they are pathological liars," Levin told Hannity Tuesday evening after Trump's Oval Office remarks. "They have been in Congress over half a century. What the hell have they done about the border? Nothing. They are part of the scam artists. They get amnesty, legalization, citizenship, and never secure the border."

"These two and the rest of them are never forced to explain their flip-flop," Levin continued, honing in on an oft-repeated Democratic border security "hypocrisy" touted by Trump, Mulvaney, and Hannity for years. He pointed to Pelosi, Schumer and Hillary Clinton's past support of southern border barriers and accused them of suddenly making the wall an issue of morality.

The argument hinges on Democratic support of the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which was signed into law by President George W. Bush and authorized 700 miles of fencing along the southern border outside predominately urban areas. The legislation was seen as a potential first step toward passing comprehensive immigration reform. It authorized more checkpoints, advanced technology and unmanned aerial vehicles to help prevent illegal immigration.

Schumer and then-New York Sen. Clinton both voted in favor of the legislation introduced on September 13, 2006, by Republican congressman Peter T. King of New York. The Fence Act passed 283-138 in the House and 80-19 in the Senate. Pelosi, however, voted nay on both the Secure Fence Act and the Border Security Bill, but voted in favor of authorizing the Homeland Security Department in May 2005.

Trump himself ridiculed the much smaller border project in an August 2016 interview with Hannity, in which the then-GOP presidential nominee Trump blamed "environmental" issues for preventing the "little wall, such a nothing wall" funded by the 2006 Secure Fence Act. But never one to shy away from his own ideological nuance, Trump ridiculed Clinton during an October 2016 presidential campaign debate with her for having "fought for the wall in 2006."

Trump's do-or-die ultimatum amid the government shutdown regarding the border wall follows the narrative Mulvaney has been touting for years.

"We still don’t understand why the Democrats are so wholeheartedly against [the border wall]. They voted for it in 2006," Trump's now-acting White House Chief of Staff Mulvaney said in an April 2017 Fox News interview. "Then-Senator Obama voted for it. Senator Schumer voted for it. Senator Clinton voted for it. So we don’t understand why Democrats are now playing politics just because Donald Trump is in office."

Levin claimed the Democratic Party platform in 2008 supports "virtually every thing the Republican president of the United States said today. The American people haven't changed, the Republican Party hasn't changed. The Democrats, for political reasons and power reasons, they've changed because they want to drag us all off the cliff with them."

"Notice Pelosi and Schumer didn't talk about the 'American worker,' notice they didn't talk about the communities on the border that are suffering. Notice they never talked about law and order because they hate law enforcement. They never talk about the overwhelming costs involved in health care, the overwhelming costs that are involved in our public schools," he continued.

Levin said U.S. corporations including Disney, Hewlett Packard and Boeing are all part of the "scam" of bringing illegal aliens into the country. Levin criticized the "Democrat Party before country" mentality and -- tapping into Old Testament tales -- claimed it is part of a liberal plan to embrace the Latino vote and keep the GOP doomed to "wandering in the desert" for 40 years.

"They fooled Reagan. They fooled Bush 41. They fooled Bush 43. But they are not going to fool Donald Trump who has dealt with tougher than Pelosi and Schumer.”

President Donald Trump told Fox News on Thursday that Democrats view the battle over his promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border as "a political thing," with their eyes on the 2020 election.

"It's not a money thing," Trump told Sean Hannity. "[Democrats] look at the 2020 race and they're not feeling too good about it. They'll do whatever they can to win."

The standoff over the wall, for which Trump has demanded $5.7 billion, is the main sticking point in the standoff that has led to the partial government shutdown, which will mark its three-week anniversary Friday.

Trump spoke to Fox News on the banks of the Rio Grande, where he traveled Thursday to argue that a steel barrier would deter drug and human trafficking into the United States.

"Everyone wants us to win this battle," Trump said. "It's common sense. Death is pouring through. We have crime and death and it's not just at the border. They get through the border and they go and filter into the country."

"There should be no reason for us to have to do this," the president added. They shouldn't be allowed in and if we had the barrier, they wouldn't be allowed in."

Sean Hannity is tagging along on President Donald Trump‘s tour of the border in Texas Thursday — this in advance of their interview set to air on Fox News Thursday evening. And, per one account of the trip, Hannity has ditched the press corps and is spending his time with administration officials.

According to a White House pool report written by Philip Rucker of the Washington Post, the Fox News host has been separated from the rest of the media and is getting some face time with key staff.

“Sean Hannity has special access here,” the report said. “He huddled with [White House communications director] Bill Shine and [Department of Homeland Security] Secretary [Kirstjen] Nielsen and is following along on Trump’s tour, only standing with the staff and federal officials as opposed to the press corps.”

Lindsey Graham has had enough of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and their obstructionist ways.

Look, if their opposition to Trump’s border wall to was based on some deeply held belief that would be one thing.

But it is not, they are just playing politics with our national security as Lindsey Grahm just proved beyond a reasonable doubt.

Lindsey told Sean Hannity, “The one thing that we have in common, as a member of the Senate, Speaker of the House, Minority Leader of the Senate, and the President of the United States… we have a bunch of people guarding us with guns. It’s pretty hard to get into the Capitol, really hard to get into the White House.”

“All the President is saying is… I’d like to provide more security to the American people. It is a crisis, Sean,” Lindsey added.

“I’ve tried to be reasonable and practical, but when it comes to immigration, I’m flabbergasted to hear from my Democratic colleagues who have voted for billions of dollars in border security money… that this is manufactured.”

“Was it manufactured when Obama wanted the money? No. Why did you give the money to Obama and Bush if it was a manufactured crisis? Graham asked, referring to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

“To my Democratic friends: how many Caravans have to rush the border until you believe we have a problem?” Graham asked before explaining that there are 300,000 people waiting for asylum claims to be adjudicated, while we are spending $750 a day to take care of the 11,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America we are housing.

“Nancy Pelosi says end the shutdown, Donald Trump says security the border. How about this: let’s secure the border, then end the shut down.” Graham suggested.

“There is a deal to be had here, but it’s hard to get a deal when people you’re dealing with call you racist because you want a border security wall, give you a dollar and say that’s enough, accuse border control agents of gassing children when mobs run toward our border.”

“We’re dealing with pretty radical people here and we’re never going to get a deal until the radicals are set to the side and we get reasonable people to deal with.”

“You know what I think is immoral, trying to accuse people who are trying to defend the nation honestly and working hard and trying to put their lives at risk as being the problem, not the coyote, not the drug dealer, not the terrorist.”

“Democrats want to fight, they’re gonna get one. If they want to solve the problem, we’ll do that too.”

An Antifa Twitter account has posted the home addresses, phone numbers, and social media accounts of what appears to be the entire staff at the Daily Caller.

The collection of personal information belonging to those at the Caller was posted hours after Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that Republicans have been circulating a fake nude photo of her, which she said was subsequently published by the Daily Caller.

The website had published a story about how people on the internet were claiming a not-so-scandalous photo of legs in a bathtub was of the New York Rep., but later corrected the article to clarify that it was not her.

For those out of the loop, Republicans began to circulate a fake nude photo of me. The @DailyCaller reposted it (!) and refused to indicate it was fake in the title as well.

Completely disgusting behavior from Conservative outlets.

No wonder they defended Kavanaugh so fiercely.

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) January 10, 2019

The post containing the information about the website’s staff does not mention Ocasio-Cortez, but takes aim at Tucker Carlson.

“Tucker Carlson is a scum bag. We are targetting the Daily Caller because of its promotion of white supremacist hate speech targetted at POC, immigrants, and the Left, as well as its own history of doxxing. Founded by the notorious white supremacist Tucker Carlson, the Daily Caller promoted Jason Kessler’s Unite the Right demontration in Charlottesville, VA, which infamously culminated with the death of Heather Heyer, as well scarring thousands of onlookers. The Daily Caller staff are all complicit in promoting racist propaganda. We know where you sleep at night. We know you’re all a bunch of shit head rich kids with no moral fiber. We want you out of politics and out of the way,” the post, which we have decided not to link to, reads.

The tweet of the personal information included a gif of white nationalist Richard Spencer declaring that “Antifa has won.” We are not including the tweet as we do not want to promote the spread of this information.

On Wednesday, Carlson received hate mail at his home wishing death upon his daughters, according to a source in the DC Metropolitan Police Department. It was sent by US mail and suggested that his children should be poisoned. The source of the letter is currently under investigation.

The very detailed dox includes personal information including home addresses and phone numbers for Editor in Chief Geoff Ingersoll, Editorial Director Vince Coglianese, Executive Editor Paul Conner, Ginni Thomas, Audrey Conklin, Derek Draplin, Virginia Kruta, Eric Lieberman, Eric Owens, Mike Piccione, David Sivak, Amber Athey, Saagar Enjeti, David Hookstead, Derek Hunter, Heather Hunter, Richie McGinniss, Guillaume Pierre-Louis, Stephanie Hamill, Benny Johnson, Betsy Rothstein, Jena Greene, Mike Brest, Will Ricciardella, John Wellington, Andrew Kerr, Brian Danza, Margaret Crilley, Neil Stevens, Patrick Kuo, Chad Ryan Brady, Krista Staley, Jack Kocsis, Ford Springer, and many more.

The poster took aim not only at editors and reporters, but the advertising staff as well.

In November, hours after an Antifa mob showed up at the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, an affiliated Twitter account published his home address and the home address of his brother Buckley Carlson — along with the addresses of Ann Coulter, Daily Caller’s Neil Patel, and Sean Hannity.

The leftist mob had showed up at his home chanting threats such as, “Tucker Carlson we will fight, we know where you sleep at night!”

You witnessed President Trump make a powerful, compelling case for the wall on our southern border. This is a national emergency. The situation is now dire. And whether or not we secure our border, it does have real life or death consequences.

As we've known now in the last two weeks, but also over the past two years, approximately 4,000 criminal aliens have been arrested for homicide, 30,000 for sex crimes, over a 100,000 for violent assaults. These are against American citizens.

CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM SEAN HANNITY.

In 2018, 17,000 individuals with criminal records were apprehended trying to cross this border, 60,000 inadmissible or illegal immigrants are turned away from our borders every single month. And over the last few weeks 20,000 children were smuggled or trafficked into the United States. Illegal drugs are also pouring across the southern border.

This is about more than just numbers and statistics. It's about human lives - American lives, families that will never see their loved ones again, children who will grow up without fathers and mothers. Parents who are forced to bury their children.

Now, every seven days, 300 Americans die from a heroin overdose. 90 percent of that highly toxic and addictive chemical comes south of the border. Given all these facts, why not give our border patrol the tools they are asking for, that they need, that they desperately call for -- and that is a strategic wall on our southern border.

This is about more than just numbers and statistics. It's about human lives - American lives, families that will never see their loved ones again, children who will grow up without fathers and mothers. Parents who

are forced to bury their children.

Because of the devastation and the senseless impact of uncontrolled borders, even Democrats once fully supported these border walls. In 2006, as I mentioned earlier, Democrats and Republicans, they did come together to fund a partial border wall in a bill called the Secure Fence Act. 64 Democrats in the House voted in favor of the bill. In the Senate, it passed with overwhelming support in both parties.

Chuck Schumer, who says this is a "manufactured crisis," once voted for the wall. Hillary Clinton voted for it. Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein voted for the wall; so did Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

But now that President Trump is in office - well, now the wall is somehow immoral. They are all guilty of some of the single most blatant flip-flops in American political history. The worst part of this is Democrats are politicizing what is our national security.

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) stated that now is the best chance for Republicans to get border wall funding for President Trump now, and if they don’t do it “that’s the end of his presidency and the end of our party, and we deserve to be punished if we give in now.”

Host Sean Hannity asked, “[I]f the president doesn’t take the stand here, fully, do you see any other path that he can use that he will get the money to stop the crimes from happening on our southern border, the drug trafficking, human trafficking, some criminal elements that want to cross over our border?”

Graham said, “This is the best chance I have seen to get a deal. The president made a compelling case tonight for more border security. … I am bound and determined to see this thing through. There should be a deal where we secure the border, give the president the wall money he needs, and try to fix other problems, like TPS reform and maybe do something for the DACA population.”

He later stated to fellow Republicans that now “is the best chance we’ll ever have to help President Trump get border wall funding, steel barrier funding, and at the same time, fix the loopholes. … But if we undercut the president, that’s the end of his presidency and the end of our party, and we deserve to be punished if we give in now.”

Fox News host Mark Levin called Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) "pathological liars" and "scam artists" late Tuesday night following their response to President Trump's Oval Office address on the border wall.

“First of all, the president gave an outstanding speech. It was concise. It was compassionate and truly compassionate," Levin, who hosts the weekend primetime program, "Life, Liberty and Levin," told the network's Sean Hannity during an interview. "He provided the context both in terms of what’s going on in the border, the expense, which is de minimis and who is really responsible."

"Let’s keep a few things in mind when you watch Schumer and Pelosi, they are pathological liars," he continued in pivoting to the Democratic response to the president's address. "They have been in Congress over half a century. What the hell have they done about the border? They are part of the scam artists. They get amnesty, legalization, citizenship, and never secure the border."

"Just spend billions and trillions more, more debt, more deficits on the redistribution of wealth, on $200 billion a year on illegal aliens," he concluded. "One more time they fooled Reagan. They fooled Bush 41. They fooled Bush 43. But they are not going to fool Donald Trump who has got tougher than Pelosi and Schumer.”

The commentary from the conservative radio talk show host, a former chief of staff to President Reagan's attorney general, Ed Meese, comes as the partial government shutdown entered its 19th day. It is now the second-longest in U.S. history, only behind the 1995 shutdown during the Clinton presidency.

Pelosi and Schumer requested and were granted airtime on all the major broadcast and cable news networks to provide their response to the president's address after Trump received the same courtesy.

Pelosi spoke first and accused the president of "misinformation and even malice" in making his argument moments earlier.

"Sadly, much of what we have heard from President Trump throughout this senseless shutdown has been full of misinformation and even malice," said Pelosi in what appeared to be scripted comments. "The president has chosen fear. We want to start with the facts."

"Most presidents have used Oval Office addresses for noble purposes. This president just used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration," Schumer added later.

Trump and leaders of both parties are expected to meet at the White House on Wednesday.

On Monday, President Trump announced he wanted to address the nation on Tuesday evening concerning the current immigration situation happening at the border.

Trump tweeted: “I am pleased to inform you that I will Address the Nation on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border. Tuesday night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern.”

The speech is expected to take less than ten minutes but could include a game-changing decision, Fox News’ Sean Hannity predicted.

After the announcement was given on Monday, Hannity theorized Trump could use the speech as a platform to declare a national emergency.

“I’m guessing he’s going to declare a national emergency,” Hannity said during the “Sean Hannity Show” on Monday, as the Washington Examiner reports.

Per the Washington Examiner:

Hannity pointed to House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith, D-Wash., saying in an interview that Trump could use emergency powers to build a wall.

“Unfortunately, the short answer is yes,” Smith said on ABC’s “This Week.”

Trump previously hinted that a declaration of a national emergency would warrant him authority to fully fund the border wall without congressional approval. Such a move would almost immediately be contested by the court system.

“Congressman Adam Smith, the new Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, just stated, ‘Yes, there is a provision in law that says a president can declare an emergency. It’s been done a number of times.’ No doubt, but let’s get our deal done in Congress!” the president said in another tweet on Monday.

Smith also said such a potential move would “probably [be] the worst public policy idea I’ve heard in about 10 years.”

The Washington Examiner reports Hannity claimed an argument supporting the national emergency declaration would be easy to make by the Trump administration:

Hannity, who is well-known to have the Trump’s ear and has interviewed the president on a number of occasions, claimed on his talk radio show that it wouldn’t be challenging to conjure up numbers to demonstrate that there is a national emergency.

“This shouldn’t be that hard to figure out, because when you have that many people that are that many victims of crime happening in this country, that should be enough of a national emergency,” Hannity said.

A total of 158,581 administrative arrests for civil immigration violations were conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in fiscal 2018, including 105,140 arrests of convicted criminals and 32,977 arrests of individuals with pending criminal charges.

On Tuesday night, President Trump will deliver a primetime address to all Americans, speaking about the crisis at our southern border. As we speak, a partial government shutdown is still in effect as Democrats bury their heads in the sand, close their eyes and pretend that America's borders are totally safe and secure.

They are not. In fact, Democrats are adamantly refusing to give border patrol agents the tools they desperately need and are asking for. And that is a strategic wall on the southern border. But now, even one top Democrat is admitting that President Trump does, in fact, have the power to build a wall without any congressional approval whatsoever.

"There's a provision in law that says the president can declare an emergency," said U.S. Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., in an interview on ABC News. "It's been done a number of times. But primarily, it's been done to build facilities in Afghanistan and Iraq. In this case, I think the president would be wide open to a court challenge saying, 'Where is the emergency?'"

Where is the emergency? We will answer that question. Pay attention to the following statistics, that, of course, the hate-Trump media, hate-Trump Democrats, are not telling you, that they're ignoring.

Now, in the past two years alone, criminal aliens have been responsible for approximately -- look at this number -- 235,000 violations of the law, including 4,000 homicides, 30,000 sex crimes and -- get this -- over 100,000 violent assaults. In just 2018, 17,000 individuals with criminal records were apprehended at the border.

And the crisis goes much, much deeper. In towns and cities all across the country, we know about the opioid crisis, 300 Americans are killed every single week from heroin; 90 percent of that heroin is flooding across our southern border. That death toll, by the way, is equal to -- think about this -- the number of American troops killed every week in Vietnam during the year 1968. That was the war's deadliest year.

And over a 10-year period, the total Americans killed from illegal drugs coming across the southern border will be nearly three times higher than the total number of U.S. troops killed in Vietnam. There is your crisis, by any definition.

For us and most Americans, this is not a political game. We are seeing this is as about life and death. This is about innocent, brave, law-abiding Americans and legal immigrants literally dying because our borders are not secure.

But don't expect to see this on any other network. Of course, Donald Trump wants something, and they are just against it. Instead of reporting facts and truths, they seem content with just trashing Trump voters, blaming us for seeing the truth. Over on fake news CNN, commentator Rick Wilson first trashed Trump supporters, suggesting that we didn't have teeth. Now, he's saying we are not sophisticated enough; we're not smart enough to understand the issue involving border security.

And while fake news CNN insults our intelligence, conspiracy-TV, MSNBC, are referring to Americans - we the people - as cowards. Remember last week, when I was talking about how we have the hate-Trump media? And I told you about the information crisis? Personal attacks will never stop this show from reporting truths.

For us and most Americans, this is not a political game. We are seeing this is as about life and death. This is about innocent, brave, law-abiding Americans and legal immigrants literally dying because our borders are not secure.

Now, we know the story of Officer Ronil Singh. He was gunned down by an illegal immigrant just after Christmas. He was just put to rest this weekend. His 5-month-old son will never know his father. That's life and death.

And the person responsible for that heinous attack had a criminal track record. He should have been turned over to ICE. He should have been deported. But in California, they have sanctuary cities. The whole state is a sanctuary state, and those policies prevented that from happening. Government policies are now literally aiding and abetting lawbreaking and paving the way for future crimes. Why do you think the government would act and aid and abet criminals?

And like every other Democrat, you have the now-former governor of California, Jerry Brown, burying his head in the sand. But really, he ought to be taking responsibility. Sanctuary states literally prevent criminals that would normally have been handed over to ICE, from being being detained. It makes it illegal. That means they go free. What happened to Office Singh is all too common an occurrence.

Now, have you heard the name of Pierce Corcoran? On December 29, he was killed by a suspected illegal immigrant driving without a license, without insurance and on the wrong side of the highway. Pierce was only 22 years old.

The American people and the public need to start asking some really important, tough questions. How many of our fellow citizens have been murdered because of unsecured borders? Now, if that's not a national emergency, I don't know how we would ever define one.

The parents of a 22-year-old Tennessee man who was killed after a suspected illegal immigrant allegedly swerved into oncoming traffic spoke to Fox News Monday night about their grief and desire for stronger border security in America.

“It’s been the hardest thing of our lives, I can’t even explain it,” Wendy Corcoran told Sean Hannity, noting border security isn’t being taken seriously enough. Pierce Kennedy Corcoran, the son of Knoxville Fire Department Capt. D.J. Corcoran, was killed in a head-on car crash last month.

Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo, 44, was charged with criminally negligent homicide and driving without a license or insurance, and he was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

He is set for a preliminary hearing Thursday, The Knoxville News Sentinel reported.

The mom said she and her husband taught their children to be responsible, and the alleged negligent suspect didn’t abide by the same responsibility that Pierce did.

His obituary noted her son was a promising, well-rounded man: “In his 22 years, he tried his hand at every sport possible, developing a love of golf, soccer, tennis and running 2 marathons in 2017. He became an advocate for eating healthy and exercising daily. He was in the process of completing his personal trainer certification.”

Hannity read a letter she wrote that said her son deserved better than a senseless death, and that immigrants who come to the U.S. ought to come legally and become responsible citizens.

Her husband, Capt. Corcoran, added: “We are not a hating people. We love, and we rally behind people — the underdogs who come here to America and succeed legally, and that’s what we want.”

He said legal immigration shouldn’t be a partisan issue, and his son’s alleged killer was in America for 14 years in “the shadows,” making no attempt “to become a legal, law-abiding citizen.”

Wendy said, “Our son’s life meant something, and our government makes it feel as if it didn’t — that somebody who had no right to be here matters more.”

She said she felt re-victimized by the system, and blamed the government for the cracks in the system.

Her husband mentioned an old saying by his father who said deterrents such as a block or door or wall keeps out an honest person. A criminal will find a way in, and deterrents in place keep out the bad guys.

“In manufacturing, if you manufacture a product, and it is killing people, and it is hurting them, they will issue a recall. We have a system that has a flaw. We have a flaw in the system, and there needs to be a recall. There needs to be a do-over,” her husband added. “We need to stop the conveyor belt — stop the manufacturing.”

Even Fox News Has Had Enough of Trump's Anti-Immigrant BS

Chris Wallace fact-checked Sarah Huckabee Sanders bogus stats on-air, but she didn't let being wrong slow her down.

By and large, Fox News is the White House's most reliable aide for laundering Donald Trump's worst ideas. Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and the interchangeable couch-warmers on Fox & Friends all participate in a Human Centipede-esque feedback loop with the president, validating his anti-immigrant hysteria and providing him with new ideas and talking points.

When Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, it's likely she was expecting more of the encouraging fawning that pervades the network so much of the time. What she got instead was fact-checking and push back. Wallace initially takes issue with Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen saying that DHS had stopped 3000 "special interest aliens" from entering the U.S.—Wallace points out that this designation only means that these are people who are from the same countries as other terrorists, not people who are suspected terrorists themselves.

Rather than address that point specifically, or at all, Sanders responds by claiming that 4000 "known or suspected terrorists" come into the U.S. illegally, and since the weakest point of entry is the southern border, we need a border wall. Wallace actually interrupts her here:

"Wait, wait, wait, because I know the statistic, I didn't know if you were gonna use it but I studied up on this. Do you know where those 4000 people come from, where they're captured? Airports. The State Department says there hasn't been any terrorist that they've found coming across the southern border."

It's not quite the fury and emotion of Geraldo Rivera's on-air rant about the demonization of immigrants, and it certainly didn't stop Sanders from repeating herself as though she were saying something new. But when faced with a journalist who's supposed to carry water for her and the president, someone she can't attack as a liberally biased "enemy of the people," Sanders suddenly can't come up with anything off script.

It was a huge, productive, extraordinarily important 24 hours for President Trump and the deranged hate-Trump left. They are spinning out of control, beyond even my predictions. Calls for impeachment, vulgar tirades, plans for a 70 percent federal tax hike, a bill to radically alter the U.S. Constitution.

Now, it's only day two of the Democratic-controlled hate-Trump House of Representatives. The wheels are coming off. It is not a pretty picture.

And as you pay attention to my monologue, be sure to ask yourself this important question. (We'll be asking questions they never ask in the media.) Is what you are hearing and seeing and witnessing, is it good for you, for your family? Is it good for the country we love?

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE FULL EPISODE

We start today with our congressional watch. I long warned you that in 100 days, the entire country will know what we know, and that is just how radical this new Congress is. And we're getting off to a quick start.

Just hours after getting sworn in, you have Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib going on a profanity-laced rant while screaming for the president's impeachment. By the way, they filed that Thursday, too. They're going to rush, for what reason, God only knows.

Here’s what she said: “People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says, mama, look, you won, bullies don't win, and I said, baby, we don't, because we're going to go in there and we are going to impeach the __________ (EXPLETIVE DELETED)."

All right. So, do you need any more proof that impeachment was the Democrats top agenda item? Remember, they were telling Rep. Maxine Waters, just don't say it, don't say it, we are going to do it but don't say it.

By the way, you will never get a conviction in the Senate. They need two-thirds of the Senate to get a conviction. It is not going to happen, in spite of all of the hype, all of the hysteria that you are going to be hearing every single day. The media is lying to you.

Now, is this what the Democratic Party has become? The media, they hate Trump every second, every minute, every hour of every day. And on Friday, the same congresswoman doubled down on her dumb remarks, tweeting, “I will always speak truth to power, #unapologeticallyme.”

President Trump is considering declaring a national emergency to build his border wall using certain Pentagon funding, and he will make his case publicly on Tuesday night that there's a crisis at the southern border serious enough to justify such a drastic move. There's broad consensus that Trump could declare an emergency, that it would be met with an immediate court challenge, and that the political fallout would be swift and severe. "We will oppose any effort by the president to make himself a king and a tyrant," Rep. Jarrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said Monday. "The president has no authority to usurp Congress' power of the purse."

"Trump's leading allies on the right, such as Fox News host and presidential confidant Sean Hannity, have spoken encouragingly about the prospect and emboldened Trump in recent days," The Washington Post reports. But Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano sided with Nadler. Trump has no right to do this, Napolitano told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo on Monday. "That's not me saying no," he added. "The Supreme Court has made it very clear: Even in times of emergency, the president of the United States of America cannot spend money unless it's been authorized by the Congress."

"I think this is a bargaining technique," and Trump, "the master bargainer," believes the Democrats "will blink first," Napolitano said. "But when push comes to shove, this 'declaring an emergency and spending money however I want' is not going to happen."

"The president has valid emergency authorities in a time of a true emergency, but he can't spend money and he can't take property unless the Congress has authorized it — that's directly from the Constitution," Napolitano told Fox News' Martha MacCallum on Monday night. "Otherwise he's bypassing the Congress and he's not a president, he's a prince." Trump "may be biting off more than he can chew here legally and financially," Napolitano added. "He is clearly in dangerous waters constitutionally." Peter Weber

Trump attorney and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani reiterated his calls to investigate Robert Mueller for destroying evidence and vowed to produce a counter-report to the Special Counsel probe.

Speaking with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Giuliani stated that it was imperative to investigate Mueller after it was revealed the Special Counsel deleted thousands of text messages between anti-Trump former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

“This would be a massive scandal if it happened to us. If we were producing documents for them and we said ‘oh we have 19,000 texts… that we had erased’….it was erased by Mueller’s record officer who claims that he or she looked at them and they don’t contain anything pertinent,” he said.

What makes sense to me is there are some highly damaging texts about the way this investigation began…

He continued, “Now how can that be? Strzok and Page were texting every day about how much they hated Trump, how much they wanted to get him out, how much they wanted to stop him, how they had an insurance policy to get him out. What makes sense to me is there are some highly damaging texts about the way this investigation began as a completely illegitimate attempt to destroy Donald Trump.”

The Trump attorney insisted, “Mueller has to be investigated for wiping out those texts at an extremely relevant period of time. ”

When asked when the Mueller investigation will end, he replied “It ends when he files his report and we can answer it. Whatever garbage he hands in, we’re ready to respond to it.”

“Damn right, there will be a Giuliani report. Our report will be the definitive report, because it will be the truth. The president did nothing wrong,” he said.

Many rightwing figures lined up Friday night to criticize President Donald Trump for temporarily ending the government shutdown for three weeks without having convinced Congress to fund his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Controversial commentator Ann Coulter called Trump “the biggest wimp ever to serve as president” and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs said Trump had been “whipped” by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Fox News’ Sean Hannity, however, had a different take.

The “Hannity” host, who is a staunch supporter of the president and even joined him on stage at a Missouri rally ahead of the 2018 midterms, insisted Trump still “holds all the cards” when it comes to negotiating with Congress for the wall.

Hannity claimed that Trump would simply declare a national emergency to obtain the funds if he couldn’t seal a deal for the wall with Congress during the next three weeks that the government is reopened.

“Anyone out there, by the way, thinking President Trump caved today, you don’t really know the Donald Trump I know,” Hannity claimed in the clip shared online by Media Matters. “He will secure the border, one way or another.”

Ann Coulter is absolutely livid over President Trump's shutdown deal.

After Trump announced Friday a deal to reopen the government for three weeks without the $5.7 billion in border wall funding he has been demanding, the conservative commentator tweeted that he is now the "biggest wimp ever to serve as president."

Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States.

— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) January 25, 2019

Coulter was previously insistent that Trump not reopen the government without border wall funding, and when in December it seemed like Trump might agree to essentially the same proposal he backed today, Coulter said that if Trump can't get the wall built, he will have "scammed the American people" and will lose re-election in 2020.

Plenty of others in the conservative media agreed with Coulter and saw Trump's move as a massive cave, with Erick Erickson writing for The Resurgent, "President Trump looks weaker now than at any time in his presidency." Conservative websites like Drudge Report and Breitbart also ran red banners that read, "NO WALL" and "NO WALL FUNDS." Many Breitbart readers themselves were not happy, either.

After watching the news over my vacation, it's very evident, it is transparent and it is clear that America is facing the biggest informational crisis we've ever faced.

We have a duly-elected president of the United States that is just truly hated by very powerful forces. And they have a united goal: They want to destroy the presidency and this president.

It is so bad that the president and the first lady can't even visit our brave troops in Iraq or talk to kids about Santa Claus without brutal character assassination, personal attacks, and just pure hatred. This is why we are introducing new segments on this program. We're going to call them "Hannity Watch."

We're going to have a "Hannity Watch" on media bias, where we will expose all the hate-Trump news coverage.

There is going to be a "Hannity Watch" on the economy -- things and how they impact your family, your pocketbook. There will be a "Hannity Watch" on health care - what is best for your family?

There will be a "Hannity Watch" on Hollywood, how they have an agenda that is both political and biased and designed to indoctrinate. We'll have a "Hannity Watch" on campus, where political correctness and indoctrination of our kids have gotten way out of control.

That's my mission, the mission of this show going forward. We want to look out for you, protect you, protect your family, fight daily to ensure this constitutional republic stays strong and vibrant for future generations.

We'll have "Hannity Watch" on the "Deep State." Prediction: huge, stunning news this year that will expose the biggest abuse of power, corruption of our own government.

We'll have "Hannity Watch" on socialism. That means the push to destroy free market capitalism. There will be a "Hannity Watch" on national security -- how to protect our homeland and exposing efforts by some to undermine these protections. We'll have "Hannity Watch" on border security. We'll be watching there as well, as the country needs to stop the flow of drugs and human trafficking.

Every night, we're going to ask this question: Is what we are talking about good for America? Is it good for you? Is it good for your families? Is it good for we, the people?

Now, we plan to expose all the hatred that is out there every day -- people that hate our Constitution, people that would shred our Bill of Rights, and the First, Second, Fourth Amendments. Along the way, we're going to offer solutions to protect the interests of every American.

This is not Republican or Democrat. This is not conservative or liberal. This is about what is right for this great country.

So, that's my mission, the mission of this show going forward. We want to look out for you, protect you, protect your family, fight daily to ensure this constitutional republic stays strong and vibrant for future generations.

And sadly, that's at risk. We have powerful forces -- and you can see them every day in society - that have now aligned to destroy the president that we, the people, have elected. It's a clear and present danger to every American, our Constitution and our future.

So, we are inviting you in every weeknight at 9 p.m. ET. I can assure you and I promise you, there'll be no other show on television like this. And I hope you tell your friends and I hope you'll join us.

Nancy Pelosi has officially taken back the gavel, and now the hate-Trump Democrats are gearing up to carry out the agenda they were hiding all during the election and we were warning you about.

They want their crumbs back. They want to eliminate ICE, they want open borders, and ObamaCare on steroids. They want a single-payer system and endless, endless, endless investigations. How does that help you?

They want to investigate the president and -- of course -- impeachment, impeachment, impeachment. But they wouldn't tell you this leading up to the midterm elections.

CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM SEAN HANNITY.

So, here it is, Day One of the new Congress. A Democrat representative has already introduced articles of impeachment. (They need to read the Constitution. It would be a nice intellectual exercise for them.)

And the newly-crowned speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is refusing to rule out a plan to impeach President Trump.

"We have to wait and see what happens with the Mueller report," she said in an interview on the "Today" show. "We shouldn't be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn't avoid impeachment for a political reason. So, we just have to see how it comes out."

All these things that these Trump-haters wouldn't tell you during the campaign, now they are revealing it. We were right from the beginning. In addition to impeachment, Democrats are also preparing new legislation that demands 10 years of the president's tax returns. Oh, that's so important for your life. And you better believe they plan for a big tax cut. That's probably all imminent.

There are no moderates left in the Democratic Party, which is really sad. Henry "Scoop" Jackson, more conservative Democrats that want to get things done -- coming together, bipartisanship -- I don't see it. As the Democratic Party gets pushed further and further to this extreme radical left, watch what's going to happen.

Democrats will never, ever, ever -- in spite of all their hopes and prayers and dreams and their giddiness and their excitement and the hate-Trump media saying it -- they are never going to get two-thirds of the U.S. Senate to vote to convict Trump on impeachment. Never going to happen.

We have incoming socialists Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib. they are joining their fellow comrade, Bernie Sanders, in Congress. They're planning to spend a lot of your hard-earned money. Single-payer, Medicaid for all, government-funded higher education for all, a green New Deal with massive government funding for "renewable clean energy." Didn't we try that? Solyndra, anyone?

Now, they are not just coming for your crumbs. They want the entire meal. But let not your heart be troubled.

Here's the big news: This is all one big show. No bill is going to pass without the approval of the Republican Senate or the Republican president. And thanks to the president's hard work for the midterm elections, Republicans picked up seats in the Senate and they have a solid majority.

Let me make a prediction: Democrats will never, ever, ever -- in spite of all their hopes and prayers and dreams and their giddiness and their excitement and the hate Trump media saying it -- they are never going to get two-thirds of the U.S. Senate to vote to convict Trump on impeachment. Never going to happen. So, they are wasting America's time and they are stopping progress.

President Trump is no longer following Ann Coulter on Twitter after the conservative firebrand declared she would no longer support his reelection if no progress has been made on the border wall by 2020.

"RealDonaldTrump appears to no longer follow @AnnCoulter," reads a Wednesday evening tweet from @Trumpsalert, which describes itself as a bot tracking Trump family follows and unfollows and has more than 70,000 followers. "(This bot cannot tell if this was an unfollow, suspension or block.)"

Coulter during a podcast interview with The Daily Caller earlier Wednesday said Trump's presidency would be "a joke" that will leave "no legacy whatsoever if the wall wasn't built."

“Why would you [vote for him again]?” the provocative author and columnist asked. “To make sure, I don’t know, Ivanka [Trump] and Jared [Kushner] can make money? That seems to be the main point of the presidency at this point.”

“They’re about to have a country where no Republican will ever be elected president again,” she added. “Trump will just have been a joke presidency who scammed the American people, amused the populists for a while, but he’ll have no legacy whatsoever."

Trump now follows just 45 people and entities, including Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham; administration members Vice President Pence, counselor Kellyanne Conway and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders; family members including first lady Melania Trump, senior adviser and daughter Ivanka Trump and eldest son Donald Trump Jr.; and entities including the official White House twitter feed and The Trump Organization.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News' "Hannity" Wednesday night that if President Trump backs away from his demand for $5.7 billion to fund a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, it would mark "the end of 2019 in terms of him being an effective president" and "probably the end of his presidency."

"I'll tell you exactly how this is going to end," Graham told host Sean Hannity about the border-security standoff, which has shut down part of the federal government for nearly two weeks. "The president is going to challenge the Democrats to compromise and if they continue to say no, they’re going to pay a price with the American people."

Graham told Hannity he would support a compromise providing funding for the wall "as a down payment to securing the border." In exchange, Graham said, he would support giving three-year work permits to approximately 700,000 undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and covered by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. In addition, Graham said, people from ten countries who have temporary protected status (TPS) should have their legal status reaffirmed, but should not be given a pathway to citizenship.

"The president said, ‘let’s make a deal.’ The Democratic response is basically, ‘go to hell,'" Graham said. "We need the wall, they’ve all voted for the wall, and the only way we’re going to get the wall is to fight for it."

"Most Americans want to do two things, they want to secure our border and they want to be reasonable to people like the DACA population," Graham added.

WHAT IS DACA AND WHAT DOES THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WANT TO DO WITH IT?

"The president said, ‘let’s make a deal.’ The Democratic response is basically, ‘go to hell.'"

— Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

House Democrats are expected to bring forward a bill Thursday that would fund the Department of Homeland Security at its current levels, with $1.3 billion for border security and no wall funding, through Feb. 8 in a move to buy time while negotiations over the barrier continue. Graham echoed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., by declaring the bill "is not going to see the light of day" in the Senate.

"We're going to fight," Graham said. "I don’t know how this is going to end, but we’re not giving up until we get the money ... that's the end of us if we give in on this issue as Republicans."

The world will be a better place in 2019, if for no other reason than Laura Ingraham has lost one of her platforms for hatemongering, her radio show previously syndicated by Courtside Entertainment Group, due to loss of advertising revenue. But before you get too excited, she’ll be replacing it with a podcast and she’s still a fixture on Fox News. Media Matters did a lengthy article on the lowlights of Ingraham’s show. If you find yourself wondering for even a moment why the RWNJs think like they do, here is the mother lode of their dogma, 17 years of it.

Ingraham fawned over Donald Trump’s bigoted rhetoric on immigration; she defended his calls for a ban on Muslims entering the United States, and even argued that the ban was “not broad enough,” claiming that she would “go farther” and be “even worse than Trump.”

She asserted that “Middle Eastern countries have got to be told… we’re cutting you off,” questioned why the U.S. should allow Muslim immigration ”knowing that we can't tell if an Islamic individual is going to be radicalized.”

She fearmongered about Muslim immigrants as “people who have dual loyalties … whether it's the Quran, or the Quranic way of thinking, versus the loyalties to the United States.”

Ingraham claimed that Trump’s assertion that Mexico is “sending rapists” is true, and stated that Mexicans “have come here to murder and rape our people.”

She parroted Trump in claiming that “nobody has a right to be here except the people who are born here,” and said the United States should shoot deported immigrants if they try to re-enter the country.

Shehypedfears of terrorism about Muslim refugee women, asking: “What’s underneath that burqa, baby?

After the October 2017 mass shooting at a Las Vegas music festival, she suggested that photos of the gunman’s room were staged and that he was in too “poor health” to have acted alone.

Before the 2016 election, Ingraham implied that Hillary Clinton may try to kill then-FBI Director James Comey if she won.

Ingraham pushed a discredited conspiracy theory that a Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered for leaking the hacked 2016 DNC emails.

After Christine Blasey Ford accused then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, Ingraham argued that “George Soros is involved” because Ford’s “social media was scrubbed.” She also claimed -- without offering any evidence -- that Ford’s accusations were “a left-wing conspiracy.”

The boycott of sponsors of the radio show was a direct result of the efforts of David Hogg and other student activists in the wake of the Parkland shooting. Ingraham’s TV show was substantially affected as well. Politico:

It’s not unusual for advertisers to flee temporarily when controversy strikes a television program. But the sustained loss of advertising minutes and big, nationally recognized brands from "The Ingraham Angle" shows the power of activist-led boycotts and the depth of major corporations' concerns about offending would-be consumers in the hyperpoliticized era of President Donald Trump.

Early this year, Ingraham’s show averaged nearly 15 minutes of advertisements per hour, in line with those of her Fox News prime-time colleagues Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, according to an analysis for POLITICO by Kantar Media.

That number plummeted after the boycott campaign, and it still hasn’t recovered: Last month, “The Ingraham Angle” averaged 10 minutes and 50 seconds of ads per hour, Kantar Media found.

It’s not an all encompassing victory, but it is a victory none the less. This is how it starts. If the golden adage is “follow the money” the corollary to that rule is “hit ‘em in the pocketbook.”

Now aside from these two companies People for the American Way also operating a fake news media organization called Right Wing Watch. It’s sole purpose is to target Republicans.

People for the American way does not specify on its Right Wing Watch website wether of not it is funded through its non-profit or political organization.

People for the American Way does not have a separate website for its political and non-profit branches. Soros donates to a non-profit that uses its 501(c)3 status to further the Democratic political agenda which is against federal law.

Right Wing Watch has targeted figures such as President Donald Trump, Governor Greg Abbott of Texas, Sean Hannity, Sean Spicer, and many others. You can view a full list of their targets here.

People for the American Way has also worked against Facebook on behalf of Soros. As of the publishing of this story Facebook had not returned DC Chronicle’s request for comment.

Right Wing Watch is credited with spreading a smear political propaganda campaign against Alex Jones in order to get him deplatformed from Facebook, Twitter, and Apple. It’s also worth noting that Alec Baldwin serves on the Board of Directors for this company.

Since the midterm elections, Sean Hannity's ratings have dropped 19 percent – and plummeted 30 percent among the coveted 25-54 demo. (Newsday)

While Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity will end 2018 as cable news' most popular personality, he's been slumping in the ratings since the midterm elections and ominous stories related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of the president.

His show averaged 2.76 million viewers since the election through Dec. 17, down 19 percent compared with the previous month, the Nielsen company said. Among the 25-to-54-year-old demo most coveted by advertisers, he's down 30 percent. Competitors Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and Chris Cuomo on CNN are up in each measurement.

Maddow has been beating Hannity outright in December, a turnaround from October. During that month, when Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation drama dominated the news, Hannity's audience routinely exceeded Maddow's by about a million people each night, Nielsen said.

"I think it's a reflection of the mood of his audience," said Mark Lukasiewicz, dean of Hofstra University's communications school and a longtime NBC executive. "They can't be happy with what is coming out of Washington every day."

A 2014 Pew Research Center survey found 83 percent of Hannity's audience identified themselves as conservative.

As the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump is expected to worry about many things concerning the initiatives and advocacies that her office supports. However, a recent report claims that she is also preoccupied with worrying about the health of her husband and the President of the U.S., Donald Trump.

Shortly after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the so-called Mueller investigation commenced with the goal of determining whether or not the Russian government had interfered with the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections. The proceedings are still ongoing since May 2017 and HollywoodLife reports that it has been a source of so much stress for the POTUS. In effect, Melania is purportedly worried that it may soon affect her husband badly.

While Melania Trump is reportedly worried about the ongoing investigations, the source added that she is not bothered it would cause political demise for her husband. “Melania believes her husband’s claim that he’s being subjected to a ‘witch hunt’ and that there’s no truth to the allegations against him,” the insider added.

New Blockchain Technology to Fight Fake News

On the other hand, Melania also has many other things to take care of as the FLOTUS. Her approval rating reportedly plunged by 11 points, according to a CNN poll released last week that had 1,015 respondents interviewed from Dec. 6-9. Interviewees with favorable opinion make up 43 % of the respondents while those with an unfavorable opinion are up at 36%. In the previous survey (Oct. 4-7) Melania’s approval rating was at 54%.

A few days later, CNN contributor Kate Andersen Brower commented that Melania “doesn’t understand” her job. Brower’s main premise in the write-up is Melania’s interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. When asked about the hardest part of the job, the first lady said it is being criticized by the media. Brower argued that Melania’s answer shows she is making the job “about herself” considering she has seen drastic events while being the FLOTUS such as meeting with very recent mass shooting survivors.

Brower’s article was answered by no less than Melania Trump’s deputy chief of staff for communications, Stephanie Grisham. “When Brower claims Mrs. Trump has no understanding of what it means to be the first lady, she intentionally ignores all the effort the first lady has put into fulfilling the traditional responsibilities of the role,” Grisham wrote in a response op-ed on Sunday.

First Lady Melania Trump has had enough of the targeting of her family. And what she’s most disturbed about is people who target her 12 year old son Barron.

Trump poured her heart out during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity during which she talked about the media bias against the president and the family.

From Free Beacon:

“Even your young son has been brought into this at times,” said Hannity, referring to the media’s treatment of the Trump family and administration. “That doesn’t — that would make me angry. Does that make you angry?”

“It does make me angry because children should be off limits, and I protect him and I want to give him normal life as possible,” the first lady said of the 12-year-old Barron Trump. “This is not normal life, but I like to protect him and give him the childhood that he deserves.”

Melania said that despite the spotlight, he was a very happy kid and enjoying his life in Washington.

Hannity asked if he was more like her or more like an “outward fighter” like his father.

Melania responded, “He has a soft, beautiful heart, but he’s a fighter too, and he’s very strong.”

One recent example of attacking Barron was when New York magazine writer Jonathan Chait mocked both the president and Barron, saying that Trump should appoint Barron as his new chief of staff because he “Looks like Trump…Will not make Trump work…and cannot be tried as an adult.”

Chelsea Clinton even came to his defense and asked Chait to “leave Barron Trump out” of his comments. Clinton has made it clear in the past she is not a fan of going after children in the White House having been a child in the White House herself and knowing what it was like.

Barron has in the past been targeted by people including Kathy Griffin who said she wanted to push the limits by going after him and by actor Peter Fonda who said he should be “ripped from his mother’s arms” and “put in a cage with pedophiles.”

An undercover FBI informant in the Russian nuclear industry who was made to sign an “illegal NDA” by former AG Loretta Lynch, claims to have video evidence showing Russian agents with briefcases full of bribe money related to the controversial Uranium One deal – according to The Hill investigative journalist John Solomon and Circa‘s Sara Carter.

The informant, whose identity was revealed by Reuters as William D. Campbell, will testify before congress next week after the NDA which carried the threat of prison time was lifted. Campbell, originally misidentifed by Reuters as a lobbyist is actually a nuclear industry consultant who is currently battling cancer.

As previously reported, Campbell was deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry where he gathered extensive evidence of a racketeering scheme involving bribes and kickbacks.

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials. –The Hill

Campbell’s attorney, former Regan Justice Department official Victoria Toensing, previously told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs “He can tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.”

Sara Carter and John Solomon sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity to discuss:

Sarah Carter: He’s very sick and he’s been battling cancer and going chemo. He is in a battle for not only his life, but in a battle against what he perceives as people within the US government that don’t want this story to come out. But there’s so much information that he is willing to share with the public to set the record straight, and believe me we’re gonna get it out there. He is going to have his say. His voice will be heard.

Hannity: He knew about the bribery, kickbacks, extortion of Putin’s agents in the US?

Sara Carter: Yes, and he will be able to lay that all out for everyone, and he will do that for Congress. John and I have been working on this for months and months and months. He came to the [Obama] DOJ with this information.

John Solomon: He is going to be an extraordinary fact witness because he gathered so much information. There are videotapes where the Russians are opening up briefcases full of cash. These are the people we then gave uranium to, that we then gave nuclear fuel contracts to.

Hannity: This is happening before they sign off on Uranium One? They knew about bribery extortion kickbacks money laundering before? They knew this was Putin and they did it anyway!

John Solomon: Yes. The Russians really thought they had played America on this one.

Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison after he pled guilty to tax evasion, making false statements on a bank loan application, lying to Congress about a building project that never even got off the ground and a questionable campaign finance violation.

Notice something missing? No Trump-Russia collusion. None. Again. It's also important to note: Michael Cohen does not have a cooperation agreement with federal prosecutors.

Meanwhile, another top target of this Mueller witch hunt, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, is asking a federal judge for leniency and no jail time. He pleaded guilty to lying to investigators, but only after legal bills wrecked his family finances and forced this man, a 33-year veteran who spent five years in combat to have to sell his home. There was also probably a threat of punitive action against his son and his business partner. Flynn fell on his sword, like probably 99 percent of fathers would do.

However, we are learning some disgusting new details surrounding how Flynn was treated by top federal officials. According to Flynn sentencing requests, then-deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe pressured then-National Security Adviser Flynn not to have a lawyer present during a seemingly relaxed, casual meeting with the FBI - the one that they said he lied at. (Except nobody believed he lied.)

This might be part of the worst part of Michael Flynn's political persecution: The agents interviewing him never thought he lied. That is a such a miscarriage of justice and an abuse of power corruption scandal, one of the biggest in American history.

Flynn agreed to sit down without attorneys present, and was then subsequently charged with lying during that very meeting.

Now, keep in mind, Andrew McCabe was ultimately fired from the FBI for lying to the bureau, and he is currently facing no charges. According to FoxNews.com, Flynn's filing also seemingly demonstrates that the FBI took a significantly more aggressive tack in handling the Flynn interview than it did during other similar matters. For example, according to FoxNews.com, "no one interviewed during the FBI's Clinton email investigation was hit with false statement charges, though investigators believed those witnesses were untruthful, big difference."

And so, as we now know, that is called a two-tiered justice system.

And this might be part of the worst part of Flynn's political persecution: The agents interviewing him never thought he lied. That is a such a miscarriage of justice and an abuse of power corruption scandal, one of the biggest in American history.

Of course, you're not likely to hear about any of this on any other media, especially over a "Conspiracy TV," MSNBC. Especially not on the liberal "Morning Joe" show, where the hosts literally spend hours every single day trying to outdo themselves, trading insults about Donald Trump and the Trump family and anybody associated with Trump.

First lady Melania Trump on Wednesday explained that she does what she believes to be the “right” thing, despite any potential disapproval that may come her way.

Trump’s remarks came during an exclusive interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity while the pair were aboard the USS George H.W. Bush.

Hannity asked the first lady to explain why she often uses the phrase, “stay true to myself,” and what it means.

“I do what I think is right. I know I will get the criticism – from the public or from the media – but I will do what is right and what I feel is right for the country and for the people,” Trump replied. “That’s why I say I want to stay true to myself and listen to myself and what to do and what is right, what is wrong and live a meaningful life every day.”

The first lady also discussed the difficulties she encountered while in the White House.

She called out “the opportunists,” specifying comedians, journalists and others who she said were “using my name or my family name to advance themselves.”

“Does it hurt?” Hannity asked.

“It doesn’t hurt. The problem is they’re writing history and it’s not correct,” she said.

Part one of the interview is set to air at 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Fox News host Sean Hannity appears to have deleted numerous tweets related to President Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen just hours before the lawyer was sentenced to three years in jail Wednesday.

Cohen, who pled guilty to numerous charges surrounding fraud, campaign finance violations, and lying to Congress, was also revealed last April to be representing Hannity as well.

The news stirred controversy at the time given that Hannity’s coverage of Cohen—which often painted the long-time attorney as a victim of a “corrupt” Mueller investigation—failed to mention the connection.

According to HillReporter.com, Hannity has now deleted upwards of 280 tweets, five of which were related to Cohen.

Several of Hannity’s remarks were saved by an automated Twitter account that screenshots tweets as they are being deleted.

One such tweet was Hannity’s denial in April that he was ever a client of Cohen.

The Fox News host has thus far failed to comment on the sudden purge of his tweets.

During Tuesday night’s edition of Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cruz also criticized Rep Nancy Pelosi, calling her stated desire to take the discussion off-camera a result of being “scared” because she’s on the “losing end of the argument.”

Fox News host Sean Hannity began the segment by comparing Cruz’s own 2013 filibuster on healthcare to Trump’s “fighting on borders now.”

“Why don’t we see more of this in the Republican Party?” he asked.

“I think you are exactly right,” Cruz responded. “The American people have for a long time been frustrated with Washington, frustrated that too many elected officials don’t follow through on their promises, and they want us to do what we said we would do.”

Cruz called the president’s Oval Office debate with Democratic leaders “terrific.” (RELATED: Pelosi, Schumer Ask Trump To Take Talks Away From Cameras — Trump Refuses)

“He was standing up and saying ‘we’re going to keep our promise, we’re gonna secure border, we’re gonna build the wall,'” said Cruz. “And I’ll tell you one of the surest indications on how unhappy the Democrats were in that exchange is over and over again Nancy Pelosi says, ‘can we turn the TV cameras off? We are not supposed to be doing this publicly.’ You can tell they’re on the losing end of the argument when she’s scared that cameras are showing that she and the Democrats are for open borders and the president is fighting to do what the American people want which is secure the border, build the wall and keep our country safe.”

Conservatives do not do well in the cities. We assume, strangely, that this indicates a problem with the cities rather than a problem with . . . us. We may as well be trying to sell New York City and Los Angeles Edsels full of New Coke — and cursing the consumers for being too thick to appreciate what we are offering.

New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia — as far as conservatives are concerned, these may as well be so many Sodoms upon which we are all too happy to call down fire and judgment. But it’s not only the coastal dens of sin that we have written off: In Texas — Texas! — Republican office-seekers (a reasonable if imperfect proxy for conservative political tendencies) are largely shut out of the cities: Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso — all are reliably Democratic. There is no Texas city larger than Fort Worth that routinely elects Republican mayors or that can be relied upon to support Republican candidates in state and national elections.

And if any American city should have a prestigious institution of higher education in it, it may as well be Pyongyang.

But if there is something conservatives hate worse than American cities, it is European cities. On cable-news shows, on talk radio, and at conservative conferences, conservatives talk about London and Paris as though they sit on the lower circles of Dante’s hellscape. Oslo? Helsinki? Zurich? Madrid? Lisbon? They may look like perfectly nice, cultured, thriving world cities on the outside, but conservatives are sure that they are prefigurations of the coming caliphate.

We prefer the “Real America,” which apparently means depopulated rural areas and moribund Rust Belt mill towns, outer-ring suburbs, declining mega-churches, Idaho, Oklahoma, Utah, Wyoming. We aren’t even very sure about Montana these days. If by the “Real America” you mean the parts of the country where the people and the capital are, we are not quite so sure of ourselves.

Americans, in particular the younger ones, don’t seem to be getting the message. The best and brightest of them keep going to the colleges we hate, studying for the professions we hold in suspicion or contempt, and dreaming of moving to cities that we’d be content to see washed into the sea. Republicans do very well with people who drive an F-350 to work — and God bless them. Republicans — and, more important, conservatives — do not seem to have very much to say to people who take the subway to work. Which is a real missed opportunity: If you live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and work in Manhattan, then you get an object lesson in the failures of statism and centralization every damned work day — twice. If you live in Philadelphia and have school-age children, you don’t need to read Milton Friedman: You know from bitter experience what a blessing it is to be free to choose — and what a curse it is to have choices taken away.

At the same time, some of those people will over the course of their business or personal travels visit Berlin or Geneva or Montreal and say to themselves, “Well, this isn’t how we do things at home, but some of this seems pretty good. I don’t know what Sean Hannity saw there, but Paris looks pretty nice.” Of course, European cities, like American cities, have their problems, including the unassimilated Muslim minorities living in separatist ghettos that give conservatives the willies. Those are problems that we don’t want to replicate at home. But if Vienna inspires in you nothing but sneering, don’t be surprised when those of your countrymen who find something to admire in it don’t want to join your cause.

You wouldn’t know it to listen to many conservatives, but the English-speaking countries are doing just fine: The United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are not postapocalyptic sewers and not on their way to becoming postapocalyptic sewers. In fact, there’s a good argument to be made that Canada and New Zealand are better-governed than is the United States, in many ways. Australia, too. And the United Kingdom seems to be rediscovering its self-respect. Weirdly, the same pointy-headed neo-nationalists who want to make a cult of “American Greatness” never appreciate the fact that the French, for all their faults, never, ever apologize for being French.

American conservatives have always been at their best when they speak to Americans’ aspirations. Alex P. Keaton — or, in the real world, William F. Buckley Jr. — never worried about being denounced as an “elitist.” Ambition for advancement, and the wealth and status that comes with it, was until five minutes ago part and parcel of American conservatism. That was the best message American conservatives ever had: “Being rich and happy is awesome! Here’s how you can do it, too.”

And there are still millions of Americans who want to advance and to enjoy the best things that American life has to offer, many (though by no means all) of which are to be found in the greatest abundance in American cities and in the cosmopolitan culture that America conservatives once took for granted as something of their own. What do we have to offer them? When is the last time we asked them what it is they like about Brooklyn and Austin? When is the last time we considered their personal and cultural aspirations with anything other than resentment, contempt, and outrage?

We didn’t defeat Communism and win 49-state landslides in 1972 and 1984 by hunkering down on Oklahoma hog farms. We did that with a couple of California globalists, one of them a Hollywood union boss who gave his most famous speech in a European capital.

Ronald Reagan of Los Angeles won New York and California both in 1984. In 2018, Ted Cruz can’t win the Texas city he lives in.

Maddow was about to do something that few in cable news would dare attempt: devoting the next 27 minutes—-an eternity in television news—-to slowly and methodically tying together thread after thread in the messy, confusing and complicated story of Donald Trump and Russia.

This was Maddow in her element, at her best. She was pulling things together, making sense of something that wasn’t easy to understand, but was exceptionally important. “Things are at a boil,” Maddow told her audience that night, taking her time. “Things are going fast now. Everybody needs to pay attention.”

Maddow’s viewers have been paying attention, coming back night after night for long, meaty segments packed with nuance—and pushing The Rachel Maddow Show to the best ratings in the show's ten year history, and in recent weeks, becoming the highest-rated prime-time show in all of cable news.

“She has this incredible way of bringing disparate stories together, and understanding what links them together and how you have to look at so many pieces of a puzzle in order to see how it all fits together,” Cory Gnazzo, Maddow’s executive producer, told me. “She is able to process all the information and put it together in a way that makes people focus on what’s really important.”

Maddow's viewers aren't doing what television executives have long feared they would do: rushing for the exits at the first sign of stories that require commitment. Instead, they're coming back night after night to watch “A block” segments on such seemingly ratings-toxic topics as the transactions of an obscure Russian bank, the nuances of the Constitution's emoluments clause, and on a night in early December, Maddow's 16 minute block reading long sections of the defense sentencing memorandum for former Trump national security adviser Mike Flynn.

“We have covered the Russia angle on the candidacy and the administration of the current president probably more than anybody else in the national press, I will admit that,” Maddow said last summer. “I have been teased for that. I have been criticized for it.”

As 2018 prepared to give way to 2019, Maddow’s team has absolutely no regrets. They believe they are playing a key part in writing the story of this unique moment in American history, covering the important story--and taking the time to explain both what's happening and why it matters. The show avoids the jazzy graphics and whiz-bang gimmickry often used to make complicated stories more palatable to audiences, and when Maddow has a guest, it's almost always one-on-one. That's a break from other cable news shows that force hosts night after night to referee shouting matches between panels of hyper-partisan political regulars. Maddow just takes her time and walks her viewers through the story. She takes so much time, in fact, producers sometimes have to think hard about how and when to squeeze in commercials.

“It’s unlike anywhere else I’ve ever worked in cable news,” Gnazzo told me. “We’re doing something very different from everybody else and it’s exciting people respond to it, that they stick around for that long as we go deep into a topic...It’s Rachel’s amazing way of telling a story and delivering it, I think, which is what keeps people around longer than they might—longer than one might think they would stick around to hear just one person talk.”

As 2018 slips away, Fox News Channel will toast yet another year on top—-the network's on track to finish 2018 with its highest ratings in prime-time ever. But MSNBC also had a network-best year, and in December, Maddow moved from #2 to #1, jumping ahead of FNC’s star host Sean Hannity. MSNBC beat Fox for four consecutive weeks, while Maddow, with an average total audience of 3.2 million viewers, pushed Fox News to an ultra-rare third place finish at 9 p.m. in the news-heavy week leading up to the government shutdown. (Fox News notes that the weekly win did not include Saturday, and that Hannity was away for the week, with substitute hosts typically delivering lower ratings)

But a battle is shaping up, and Maddow’s team believes they have the momentum heading into what will certainly be another intense year for cable news. The Russia story isn’t going away, but the 2020 campaign will begin heating up as early as Spring. That means those long A block segments won’t be getting any shorter. “I anticipate we’ll be working as hard if not harder,” said Gnazzo, who took one final moment to credit his team for working each day to bring Maddow’s A blocks to life.

“Rachel works incredibly hard, but it takes a village every night to get it on the air.”

In a sign that Trump world is in a total panic, Sean Hannity claimed that Robert Mueller disrespected the troops with his sentencing of Mike Flynn.

Hannity said:

33 years of service, 5 years in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan and this is the treatment? This is the thanks this country gives him? This is how we treat people? What kind of justice system is this? His house, nearly faced bankruptcy, literally and his world crashes before him and his entire family. And I would bet any amount of money that the only reason he signed this deal was well, it’s the same old system. Well, we might have to go after your son worked with you and then we are going to invoke the Logan Act which nobody invokes to go after him.

So he could have made, instead of serving his country in the private sector a lot more money. But now he has to sell his house, literally fall on the sword for his family. And don’t forget, we know that they got through what a lot of this information, through what? We knew he was the victim of illegal surveillance, illegal unmasking. Illegal leaking of raw intelligence. What about the people involved in those crimes? His rights were violated at every level. Now this is a disgrace and this is what we’ve been telling you is a glaring example of a two-tiered justice system in America.

Robert Mueller is a war hero who has a sterling career of non-partisan public service. Real disrespect for the troops is keeping them away from their families over the holidays for a bogus mission on the border as Trump is doing.

When Republicans start whining about disrespect to the troops, it is a sure sign that they are losing and freaking out. Sean Hannity is Trump’s propaganda minister, so the character attack on Mueller is expected, but a quick read between the lines reveals that the White House is terrified.

Mueller is closing in. A real patriot is coming to get the man who sold out democracy by conspiring with Russia to win a presidential election.

Raw Story

Published  4 months ago

One of the most popular arguments on the right to excuse President Donald Trump from wrongdoing ahead of any findings from the Russia investigation is to claim that the investigation itself is corrupt — and these arguments typically center on the idea, with no evidence whatsoever, that the FBI lied to the judges on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court when pursuing a warrant to probe Trump’s presidential campaign.

Trump himself has made this claim on Twitter, saying that “the Trump Campaign for President was illegally being spied upon” for “the political gain of Crooked Hillary Clinton and the DNC,” and that “the DOJ, FBI and Obama Gang need to be held to account” because they “Misled the Court to provide a pretext to SPY on the Trump Team.” And he even recklessly moved to declassify sensitive documents surrounding the surveillance of former Trump campaign aide Carter Page, in the attempt to try to prove this misconduct.

But Trump is wrong. And in fact, he is so stunningly wrong that his own lawyers with the Department of Justice had to take the extraordinary step of saying, in a filing to the D.C. District Court for a Freedom of Information Act case, that Trump essentially has no idea what he’s talking about on FISA classification, and that what he says on Twitter cannot be presumed to be evidence of anything:

Also DOJ: When President Trump quotes somebody on Twitter accusing his government of wrongdoing, that “cannot be assumed to be his confirmation of the media reporting based on government information, and it is not evidence of government misconduct.” pic.twitter.com/mm38j6qtuR

DOJ’s argument that the president shouldn’t be presumed to know what he’s talking about is a pretty remarkable one, and it’s not one I’d seen the government make before 2017. Now there’s a fair amount of caselaw on it. pic.twitter.com/sVQqxpPTUx

— Brad Heath (@bradheath) November 30, 2018

The idea that the FBI misled FISA judges to get a warrant against the Trump campaign has been debunked by the release of the FISA applications, revealing that there was a perfectly solid legal basis to investigate Carter Page amid his suspicious travel to Russia.

But this narrative persists among Trump’s political allies, and in the right-wing echo chamber. Outgoing House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) released a flimsy, partisan memo that claimed to prove FISA wrongdoing. Meanwhile, right-wing commentators like Sean Hannity have enthusiastically called for heads to roll at the FBI over the supposed lies in FISA court.

Thus, it would seem the short form of the DOJ’s argument in this filing is: Mr. President, lay off the Fox News.

Donald Trump has once again attacked CNN, claiming the network’s international operations represent the United States “in an unfair and false way” while suggesting the nation launches its own “Worldwide Network”.

“While CNN doesn’t do great in the United States based on ratings, outside of the U.S. they have very little competition,” Mr Trump wrote on Twitter. “Throughout the world, CNN has a powerful voice portraying the United States in an unfair and false way.”

“Something has to be done,” he added, “including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!”

The president’s remarks arrived amid explosive domestic and international news, including a major federal government report which says human activity has exacerbated climate change and its dire consequences, as well as Russia’s seizure of Ukranian ships, which triggered Kiev to declare martial law as world powers called for emergency meetings.

The United States currently funds several news programs, including Voice of America, a government-funded international radio program which serves as the nation’s non-military broadcasting source.

The country also funds news outlets through the independent government agency, United States Agency for Global Media, which has reportedly produced hit pieces on billionaire philanthropist George Soros, who has become a frequent target by anti-Semites and far-right conspiracy theorists, along with Mr Trump’s political allies.

This is not the first time Mr Trump has reportedly considered launching a major network. Reports surfaced throughout the 2016 election that the future president was reportedly considering overseeing the creation of a new news network if he had not won the election, that would focus on conservative perspectives and voices on current events.

His presidential campaign also launched a “Real News” series hosted by his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, and experimented with live-streaming news segments and round table discussions throughout the election, many of which raked in millions of views online.

NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik predicted the possibility of Mr Trump building a right-wing news outlet during the campaign trail, writing at the time, “I think that what they would try to do, were they to do this, would be to essentially go to the right or the alt-right of Fox News to outflank a Fox among conservatives with some, you know, nationalistic and populist rhetoric as well.”

“You could easily see Sean Hannity defecting from Fox News,” he added. “And you could see them trying to divert some of that.”

The president also stirred controversy by rejecting the findings of a report published by his own administration, which predicts deadly consequences from climate change worsening in the coming years.

“I don’t believe it,” Mr Trump said Wednesday.

It is not a crime to get oppositional research against a political opponent. If it were, every politician would be in prison.

But here we are, 560 long days into the Mueller witch hunt, Jerome Corsi, Roger Stone are in the hot seat for what? Trying to find dirt on Hillary Clinton?

According to leaked special counsel documents, Mueller is investigating communication between Roger Stone and Jerome Corsi, including an e-mail on or about July 25, 2016, where, quote, person one, we know as Roger Stone, sent a message to Jerome Corsi with the subject line, "get to the founder of organization 1, aka, WikiLeaks, Julian Assange.

Now, the body of the message read: Get to Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and get the pending WikiLeaks e-mails. They deal with the foundation, allegedly.

OK. So you heard that Assange, remember the DNC leak just before the convention, may have had more information, in this case, on the Clinton Foundation. And they want to know what he has. Roger clearly didn't know exactly what the e-mails contained in any way. In no way did he urge anyone to steal or hack the Clinton campaign or John Podesta e-mails. There’s no evidence of that. Jerome Corsi flatly denies ever having contact with Julian Assange.

In fact, Jerome Corsi voluntarily handed over his computer and cell phone, access to all of his e-mail and social media account, in order to cooperate fully with the special counsel's investigation.

Now, that's how investigators gained access to the e-mail we just showed you. And now, Mueller's investigators, they are trying to get Jerome Corsi to "testi-lie" -- say what we want in other words -- and we'll go easy on you. If not, he is 72-years-old, he may spend the rest of his life in jail. This is what we described as a perjury trap and ask Corsi to recount details about years-old email chains that he obviously didn't remember.

Now, sadly, now, this is now my advice to everyone I know. Never talk to, in spite of your love of law enforcement, FBI, truth, investigations, don't talk to them ever, without the advice of legal counsel, because if you say the wrong thing, if you forget an e-mail from two years ago, clearly, you are in legal jeopardy and they will throw your ass in jail.

Now, here you have an American citizen facing years in prison all because he received an e-mail from Roger Stone about a rumor and then forgot the e-mail existed two years earlier.

Now, what have we now become as a country here? Is Jerome Corsi really a threat to the nation? Is this what Robert Mueller thinks is justice and what it looks like?

You know, 17 investigators, multimillion-dollar budgets, 600 days, a 72-year-old man facing life in prison for receiving an e-mail and not remembering it?

This is a disgrace. This is a danger to every American.

President Donald Trump does not read - except in small doses and when his own name appears prominently. Prior to the presidency, his only activities were work and golf. He does not mingle with intellectuals, cultural trend-setters or artists.

It should come as no surprise - and it has not - that he is sorely lacking in sophistication, knowledge of the world, understanding of government and a rudimentary grasp of economics.

Sitting atop arguably the great resource on the planet - the body of knowledge retained by American government experts on everything from economics to medicine to military history - he remains blissfully ignorant on a range of subjects.

He surrounds himself with dim yes men who know little more than he and, in any event, tremble at the prospect of correcting their “Dear Leader.” But sometimes you wonder whether Trump is just, well, dumb.

The Associated Press reports:

President Donald Trump has been handing out his cellphone number to world leaders and urging them to call him directly, an unusual invitation that breaks diplomatic protocol and is raising concerns about the security and secrecy of the US commander in chief's communications. Trump has urged leaders of Canada and Mexico to reach him on his cellphone, according to former and current US officials with direct knowledge of the practice. Of the two, only Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has taken advantage of the offer so far, the officials said... “If you are speaking on an open line, then it's an open line, meaning those who have the ability to monitor those conversations are doing so,” said Derek Chollet, a former Pentagon adviser and National Security Council official now at the German Marshall Fund of the United States.

For someone who mocked Hillary Clinton for setting up a home email server that was vulnerable to hacking, Trump and his negligence defy explanation. Either he does not understand that his calls might be intercepted or does not care.

As a matter of self-preservation, however, one would think he would very much care if American enemies including terrorists could determine his whereabouts. (How is it, by the way, that American intelligence services condoned his using an unsecured line?) One would think he would be tired of being embarrassed when the content of calls is made public. It is times such as this when one wishes national security adviser H.R. McMaster had not frittered away his credibility spinning for the president and instead had the wherewithal to put his foot down and tell the president that he cannot behave in such a fashion.

When one considers this behaviour and that of his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who allegedly discussed a secret communication line using Russian facilities, several explanations come to mind. First, this behaviour reflects the degree to which these neophytes on the world stage are hopelessly unschooled and naive. Alternatively, their behaviour denotes a shocking propensity for recklessness, even with their own financial and personal security (risking blackmail, among other things). That recklessness seems without purpose. (What goal would be served by talking on unsecured cellphone lines or on Russian lines that could not be accomplished on approved lines of communication?) Alternatively, maybe these people are paranoid conspiratorialists (who make Sean Hannity sound sane by comparison), convinced that the only thing they have to fear is the American “deep state” (or some such nonsense).

Whatever the explanation, Trump does not evidence any greater knowledge or sophistication than he possessed when he entered office. You'd think he would have learned something in four months. Then again, maybe the rudimentary practices of government are simply beyond him. One need not be a psychiatrist or an educator to see that he is incapable of performing the functions of his job - executing the laws, keeping the nation's secrets, following routine security procedures. In short, maybe he is not compromised nor mentally ill, but simply dumb.
