Fox News Guilfoyle Oozes Over Putin. Blame Fox News Management (Not Ailes's hired help and set decoration)



Can we get like Netanyahu, or like Putin in for 48 hours, you know, head of the United States?

Yes, you read the headline correctly. Now, consider the source. Think in terms of "candy"' not just "eye candy." Think far more pruriently than simple eye candy.  This is "eye-candy"....(Black, White, Latino Asian, Native American, Arabic).


The gallery that follows is purely prurient with a purpose.  After the gallery, find the name and face of the "Putin" worship.


       

       


Guilfoyle said, “Can I just make a special request in the magic lamp? Can we get like Netanyahu, or like Putin in for 48 hours, you know, head of the United States? I don’t know. I just want somebody to get in here and get it done right so that Americans don’t have to worry and wake up in the morning fearful of a group that’s murderous and horrific like ISIS.”

After accepting Gretchen Carlson publicly stated on Brian Kilmeade's radio show women were not allowed to wear pants on the Fox News sets, consider Roger Ailes admitted he hired Palin "because she is hot."

Putin as unfettered oligarch

Let's take a couple of perspectives on Putin. Celebrity Net Worth published a piece this past July that offers the reader a glimpse at Putin's past 10 years at the tip of Russian Leadership and a peep at his most humble background. 

Excerpt
Last April, Putin revealed both his salary and estimated net worth. Unfortunately something just didn't add up. Putin's disclosure portrayed the controversial leader as a humble man of the people with very meager, practically non-existent, income and assets. This portrayal did not sit well with many experts of Russian government and politics. These experts agree that, without question, Putin has used his last decade of absolute power and wholehearted corruption to stash away a vast personal fortune estimated at more than $70 billion. A fortune that simply does not jibe with the humble, man-of-the-people, portrait Putin paints of himself.

Vladimir Putin – $70 Billion Fortune
So what evidence is there of Putin's secret obscene fortune? Let's start with the small stuff. Putin is known to sport a $150,000 Patek Philippe watch on most occasions and his total collection has been valued at $700,000. He also has full access to a $40 million ultra-luxury yacht that features a wine cellar, Jacuzzi, helipad and outdoor barbecue area. In terms of living accommodations, Putin has access to 20 mansions throughout the world including a lavish ski lodge and Medieval castle. The crown jewel of his property portfolio is a $1 billion palace overlooking the Black Sea that he allegedly owns through an anonymous trust. Furthermore, Putin makes frequent use of 15 Presidential helicopters and more than 40 private jets, many of which feature gold plated interiors. 
If Vladimir Putin's net worth truly sits at $70 billion, that would be enough to make him the third richest person on the planet right behind Bill Gates and Carlos Slim Helu. It would likely also represent one of the largest personal fortunes ever accumulated by a sitting President. The only other world leader who possibly looted more cash from his country was Muammar Gaddafi, who after 40 years of power stashed away a reported $200 billion in ill-gotten oil money.
There's probably never going to be a way to fully scrutinize Putin's wealth, but at the very least it's safe to assume his official declarations are not the full picture. Do you believe that Putin is worth $70 billion?

Putin and Civil Unrest




RUSSIA: Vladimir Putin Says Gay Nazis Are Behind Civil Unrest In Ukraine


According to Matthew Schmidt, an American expert on the region, Vladimir Putin has taken to labeling anti-Russian protesters in Ukraine as “gay Nazis.” 
The gay Nazis label was simultaneously an attempt to tie the new pro-Europe camp in Kiev to the hated German Third Reich while also taking advantage of the growing acceptance of gay marriage in the West, particularly in the United States. “Putin has said homosexuality is not our values, and that sense of tolerance of homosexuality is not part of Euroasia,” said Schmidt, who will be in Ukraine monitoring the May 25 elections that are being overseen by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).


Putin as Dictator

Vladimir Putin 'sacks 18 top-ranking Russian officials'

Among those who lost their jobs were heads of the Ministry of the Interior and Federal Drug Control Service


Saturday 09 August 2014
Russian President Vladimir Putin has sacked 18 high-ranking officers from their posts, according to a Ukrainian news website.
In a purging move by the embattled world leader, heads of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Federal Drug Control Service and the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation lost their jobs. 
 
The dismissals, reported exclusively by Euromaidan Press, are said to have been carried out in secret. 
While no official announcement appears to have been made by Mr Putin, reporters have posted links to the Kremlin’s official website – which can be translated into English – that show a list of staff “released” from their posts.  
The move is understood to have been made on Wednesday, 6 August, but has not been reported in any of the mainstream media, either at home or abroad.  
A number of high ranking military personnel are included among the 18 named.
We realize the Right has an affinity for Russia veritable dictator. An affinity that finds images as those posted below appealing with requisite machismo and with aura of the grand outdoors man. The images also remind of George W. Bush ranch purchase prior to his 2000 run for president and the immediate sell of the ranch upon leaving office.

Ultimately, the public and pronounced affinity for Russia's dictator is mere fodder for jingoist elements of American conservatism. Fox News managers and producers are not stupid people, yet they develop broadcast themes and messages that full embodies "The Stupid."  As with any product or service producer the operational model is "Give the customer what they want."  

We offer the following gallery of "what they want." Rest assured the customers want the full measure of the person in each image.  It is an American tragedy that has only manifest with the election of Barack H., Obama as the 44th US President.  
         

Love of Putin aside, let's close with our lede gallery of Fox News business and operational model we call blabbering "ass candy." Ass candy mixed with far-right propaganda and utter low intellect messaging.   

Our posit is in now way an effort to demean women news hosts and reporters. Our reporting does not find similarly "leggy" host model on MSNBC, other non-cable news networks and only limited exposure on CNN. Our concern with "ass candy" news delivery is its accompanying messages. Messaging that is predominately false, misinformation and outright lies. Fox has actually moved to James O'Keefe and Andrew Breitbart like message editing.

Fox News producers work to feed viewers with subliminal messages and false bravado images of Putin without any regard for how he has amassed a $70 billion treasure chest and palaces across the globe in a 10 years period.

The problem far exceeds hired "legs and thighs" for delivery of commentary, the problem is the mindset of Fox News ownership and tot executives. People who foster the Fox News business model and people who so disregard common decency and journalistic professionalism while offering WWE like news and commentary. As with the WWE, Fox News broadcast personalities should be members of the screen actors guild vs an organization of journalistic accreditation or licensing.
