Fox News, Tucker Carlson Via Stephen Colbert

Yesterday we published a piece regarding Trump and Fox News vitriol. Linked here.

There was nothing in the piece which should have surprised anyone, nonetheless, Fox News and Trump continue to wash the nation are disgusting rhetoric and dangerous demagoguery.

Trump's weekend comments about the Democrat Party hating Jews lead the ooze of insanity over the past few days. His strong Fox News supporting hosts joined in feeding their viewers dogma which Fox News appears to find acceptable. 

Stephen Colbert recently devoted four minutes of his show to Tucker Carlson comments.

Isn't it amazing that Fox News has such a huge viewer base?  What does that reality say about the inner core values of our nation?

A former employee perspective on Fox News and how it feeds its ravenous viewers.  

Show me a Fox News viewer and you have shown me a US bigot who could be a full-fledged racist.

As Trump's World Turns: Trump VS NATO (VIDEO)

Image result for NATO

Trump and Tucker Carlson speak to Trump's base supporters regard Trump's apparent hatred of NATO. It is amazing V. Putin is committed to undermining NATO. Is there a surprise Trump would follow like a lapdog?

Carlson led rump through this part of the interview.
"Let's say Montenegro, which joined last year ... why should my son go to Montenegro to defend it from attack?" Carlson asked Trump. 
"I understand what you're saying — I've asked the same question," Trump said. "Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people."  
Tucker quickly interjected by saying he was "not against Montenegro" and added that any country, such as Albania, could have been applied in his hypothetical scenario. 
But Trump added another wrinkle to the scenario and suggested Montenegro's "aggressive people" could spark a global conflict. 
"By the way, they're very strong people — they're very aggressive people," Trump said. "They may get aggressive. And congratulations, you're in World War III." 
If you want to see the actual mouth movement and sear your ears with the words, here you go: linked. After viewing the video, it is critical to recognize NATO benefits the US as much and possibly more than NATO provides defense for certain European nations.  We shouldn't forget after 9/11 many NATO members came to the aid of the US and we still have some NATO countries fighting in Afghanistan. 

Trump appears to be a "turned" placement at the top of US federal governance. It appears anything V. Putin wants or promises his oligarch supporters Trump also wants. Trump takes it further he seems to take his agreement with Putin to an operational if taking orders.

As is often the case the following Rachel Maddow "A" Block touches o what seems to be the most unhealthy elected official impact on our nation.  What we are seeing or have seen, will continue as long as Trump and Pence are in their current roles.  

The Rachel Maddow Show (some are saying the first fifteen minutes of the segment are key)

Your Trump vote or your non-presidential vote in 2016 has unleashed a hell on the US which could end in total disaster.

Eric Swalwell Sets Tucker Carlson Afire

Image result for seditiousDuring a recent Fox News segment Tucker Carlson was driven to on-air insanity by a crafted and smooth former California prosecutor,  Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.)who now serves as a member of the US House of Representatives. 

We have posted a quick excerpt from the segment. The moment just before Carlson blew a gasket about what seems an accurate depiction of current GOP efforts to support Donald Trump and his Russian escapades. 

Then, Swalwell pointed the finger at Carlson again:

“You're peddling the narrative that the Trump administration is putting out, which also is the Putin narrative because they're retweeting this with their Russian bots. If you're on the same side as WikiLeaks and Putin, you should take a step back and wonder whose bidding are you really doing?”
All done with this unserious, seditious garbage, @RepSwalwell tells Tucker Carlson that he's straight out working for Putin. Tucker freaks.

Iowa's Congressman King Predicts A Race War

As Fox News's nascent racist host and talking head Tucker Carlson joins Sean Hannity in mainstream all conservative politician disgust, it should be noted Iowa's Steve King is clearly showing a core faction of American conservatism.

Talking Points Memeo (The Wire) is reporting on King literally digging himself in ever so deeper cauldron of racism. Hispanics and blacks fighting it out, while whites watch?  Really?

“Used with permission from the TPM websites, a service of TPM Media LLC.”

King: Hispanic, Black People Will Turn On Each Other Before Outnumbering Whites

Lauren Victoria Burke

Rep. Steve King (R-IA), of newfound "somebody else's babies" infamy, said on Monday that black and Hispanic populations "will be fighting each other" before outnumbering the population of white people in the United States.
"They're dividing people, they're pitting people against each other," King said on WHO radio's "The Jan Mickelson Show" in Des Moines.

King referred to Univision anchor Jorge Ramos' remark on Fox News that "the white population will become a minority." Ramos used the point to argue that the United States is a multiracial country.
"Jorge Ramos' stock in trade is identifying and trying to drive wedges between race," King said. "Race and ethnicity, I should say, to be more correct."
He said that "accentuating the differences" will result in "people that are at each other's throats."
"And he's adding up Hispanics and blacks into what he predicts will be in greater number than whites in America," King said. "I will predict that Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other before that happens."
King tweeted on Sunday that "civilization" cannot be restored "with somebody else's babies." On Monday morning he doubled down on his comments, saying that he "meant exactly what I said" in the post.
Asked by WHO's Jan Mickelson if there was anything about his tweets that he would change, King said: "Not at all."
"If I were going to change anything, first of all, there’s only 140 characters. So I really don’t know why people hyperventilate over a tweet," King told the "Breitbart News Daily" radio show on Tuesday.
He suggested that people who reacted to his tweet with outrage were “willfully ignorant.”
“If I had room to add on I would say, you can’t rebuild your civilization with somebody else’s babies unless you adopt them and bring them into your homes and raise them as your own," King said.
He said he is a "strong supporter" of Geert Wilders, an anti-Muslim Dutch politician with whom King has previously associated himself and who he also cited in the original post.
"They are supplanting Western civilization with Middle Eastern civilization," King said. "And I say, and Geert Wilders says, Western civilization is a superior civilization. It is the first world."

Fox News's O'Reilly Busted Again; Tucker Carlson Throws A Tantrum

Yesterday we published a piece which included Fox News's most recent and most blatant example of booking "fake" guest for spewing utter lies on its most popular news shows (e.g. O'Reilly, Hannity). 

The short story about the 39 second YouTube segment which follows is: this guest is an outright liar, convicted and NOT in any way an official for Sweden.

First view a quick reminder of how O'Reilly and Fox News arrived at a common place (a story with a lying guest who is a literal fraud.)  Donald Trump during a recent rally speech followed the misleading lead of another Fox News host's, Tucker Carlson,  misleading news segment. Trump spoke about Sweden Muslim immigrant riots when there was no such civil unrest. 

After Swedish officials and Swedish citizens disavowed any civil unrest we felt compelled to comment via a post

If you did not visit the link, the essence of the post was the following video from an utter fraud.

If you wish to view the full four-plus minute segment with O'Reilly and his producers at that lying best, click here.

On Monday night, the anticipated took place.  O'Reilly on Fox News airtime, again admitting a "fake news" story. As you view the segment notice O'Reilly places a barrier between the psyche of his sycophant viewers and the reality of a "fake news' guest via the use of the world's "left-wing" media.  

A couple of points. What if left-wing media wasn't monitoring Fox News? Yes, of course, the lying guest and Fox producers would have successfully handed yet another "fake news" story to their viewers.  Moreover, the network would have successfully fulfilled its role as a broadcast division of GOP and conservative international communication.

Trump is no longer a lying presidential candidate; he is a lying US President.  

While somewhat unnecessary, we thought we'd end this piece with a couple of fact checks regarding Trump's Sweden unrest. 

Donald Trump in Florida laments 'what's happening last night - PolitiFact

Politifact O'Reilly Pundit File

What would a piece about Fox News read like without mention of its newest propagandist: Tucker Carlson? Arguing with Bill Nye is fruitless when the topic relates to climate change.

Fox News Trumped Trump (Again)

Image result for fox news toilet
Take a quick look at what happens when a US President fails to possess the intellect to understand Fox News is not a news network.  If Trump and his advisers are going to live and die by Fox News and various conspiracy sites (YouTube pages) like INFO Wars, even Pence might regret his vote for Trump.

Trump, discussing terror, seamlessly mentions incident "last night in Sweden".
There was NO "incident" in Sweden last night.

What happened in Sweden lt night?

How about a couple of Twits from Sweden (via TPM).

Literally the biggest incident of Sweden last night was a horse called Biscuit being rescued from a well. 

Might as well do a stand along tweet about this... Since I'm being swamped with questions about Trump's speech.
No. Nothing has happened here in Sweden. There has not ben any terrorist attacks here. At all. The main news right now is about Melfest. ->

Let's now circle back to my lede sentence.
Take a quick look at what happens when a US President fails to possess the intellect to understand Fox News is to a news network. 
What happened in Sweden was Fox New's news show host and longtime purveyor of right-wing bull crap, ran a segment:

Take away this bit of icing for that cake. Oh, it is an image from Fox News.

My statement as to what's happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on@FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden.

The TPI Gazettee: "You Are Fake News!"

" are fake news. No, I am not going to let you ask a question. "...

While CNN's evening broadcast was 100% Trump VS CNN and "fake News", The meeting between Trump and the US INTEL Chief, Clapper,  was a stoke of reality for the strangely motivated Trump.  Fareed Zakaria spoke on CNN's Tonight with Don Lemon. The segment was particularly newsworthy as Zakaria validated Trumps obvious ploy to whip CNN into his future Administration's model for censorship and non-questioning news reporters; basically favorable news only as Trump gets from Fox News.  (Zakaria interview follows after Media Matters)

When do we accept the signs of developing variations of fascism from the Trump administration?  It i obvious Trump doesn't believe in freedom of the press and it is also obvious he employs total lackeys who aren't successful at pushing back when their boss goes fascist.  

As he story unfolded all matters seem to indicate a strategy.  What is the old football axiom: "the best defense is an effective offense." How better to shape CNN into a Fox-like communications division frequently visited by highly compensated White House propagandist and information shapers.

Theatrics!  Trump is all about theatrics as he is the consummate reality TV show circus managers.  Theatrics is an indication of trouble to come from the Trump clan; attempts to censor and shape broadcast media is a much more serious problem.

David Edwards, The Raw Story Captures Sunday Morning Blues Via The GOP And Nationanl Networks

David Edwards, The Raw Story, had a busy morning with the GOP Sunday Morning Talk shows.  It truly is shameful the extent to which three major networks (and as expected Fox News) have transformed the former Sunday news traditions into GOP "raggamuffin" political platforms. 

Dick who? Booking the likes of Dick Cheney on televisions shows to speak about international conflict and decisions with war as a side-bar is as ridiculous as asking Dracula about the cleanliness off biting his victims neck. Seriously, Sunday morning news shows?

Right-wing Writer For Washington Examiner Spreads Convenient ACA Lie: California Doctors "NOT" Boycotting thr ACA

70% of California doctors are boycotting the ACA.

On Friday the 13th 2013, I became aware of another Right-wing strategy to do harm to the developing and increasingly popular Affordable Care Act.

We will call it the "Great California Physician Protest against the ACA." The problem is, there is no such boycott. The story is a right-wing fabrication.

As is often the case the usual suspects are integral to the newest lie. Tucker Carlson, Ben Carson (discredited Hopkins School of Medicine employee), the Washington Examiner and Fox News. Our Google search yielded articles for, of course, Breitbart News Dot Com, The News York Post, and other reliable Obama Derangement spreaders of the derangement gospel. And, the articles have surely proliferated.   If you recall Right-wing media and propagandist often grab fabricated stories and run with the stories like programmed village callers.

The genesis of the 70% California doctors who are opting out of the ACA lie is Richard Pollock, a reporter at the conservative Washington Examiner. 

A California Medical Association (CMA) spokesperson addressed the Pollack report.
"That article was wrong," says Molly Weedn, spokeswoman for the CMA. "We have no idea how many doctors are participating. We don't collect that data."
Before we link to a Daily Kos piece, we want ot make certain the message from the sentence above is driven home. If the CMA does not track such data how could the conservative Pollack secure the data.  He secures the data in the same manner many on the Right secure data: they make up the data or the information. 

Joan Carter of the Daily Kos...linked. You may prefer the actual article written for the Los Angeles Times by Michael Hiltzik.

Since, we have found credible information to refute the Right-wing lie, let's end this piece with a segment from Al Sharpton's Politics Nation. We sought to shorten the segment, but decided relevant information was sprinkled through the the minute run time.

Does Tucker Carlson have any credibility?  

How about the Washington Examiner? 

We know Breitbart Dot Com is a modern-day fantasy and comic news creator, so we expect complete fabrications 

Well, we await the next ObamaCare lie.
