Fox News has indefinitely removed contributor Andrew Napolitano from its programming, following an unsubstantiated claim he made on air last week and that was refuted by U.S. intelligence officials, according to a report. The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Napolitano has not made any appearances on Fox since last Thursday. Citing an anonymous source, the paper said Napolitano "is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future." The Washington Examiner has asked a Fox spokesperson for confirmation of the report. Napolitano last week tried to bolster President Trump´s own previous and unfounded claim
I moved two years ago and don´t have cable anymore. At first I missed Fox News because I would have it on as noise during the day when there is absolutely nothing to watch on TV. So glad it is gone. That network has gone to crap. Never liked Ted Baxter (Bill O) and Shep is just sickening. Don´t know how they keep their audience.
He has a choice. If he had sources (and hearing it at the time, live on Fox Business News with Stuart Varney, I couldn’t imagine he didn’t have sources whether he wanted to reveal them or not), he could exonerate himself...
Unsubstantiated claim? That´s a good one. First of all, all Napolitano did was relay what he was told to him by others. Since when does that have to be substantiated? Is he supposed to play a tape of those conversations? Plus, he´s not a REPORTER who is supposed to substantiate their claims but never do, just put their crap out there. Think CBS, NBC, ABC, PMSNBC, CNBC, PBS.

Murdoch spawn are libs. Saw Lachlan one night in London- he was drunk and obnoxious in a small, elegant bar. The barman said - it happened frequently. Maybe it is time to cut cable- sick of liars. Nedra Tanden and Emanuel on Sunday Mornin were disgusting. Nothing "fair and balanced" when they talk over others and spout lies. Bring back Judge Nap!
Something very sinister going on here. The movement to take down Trump has reached a fever pitch. Fox news is allowing Shepard Smith to continue his ranting and raving hate Trump pitch while they dismiss Napolitano who appears to be one of the most honest, smart legal voices at Fox. The FBI and other intelligence agencies are getting full coverage on Fox News as they appear before Congress with their obvious lies about their covert activities pertaining to bringing Trump down.
Wake up America......the movement is proceeding full speed ahead in bring down our President and they must be stopped !!
FOX lets Judge Napolitano go and keep Shep Smith and that Emmanual moron. Going out of their way to lose viewers. To bad there isn´t another "fair and balanced" station for all of the other on air people to jump ship and I´d be willing to bet they would if they didn´t need the job. Would love to be a fly on the wall down there.
Fox News has been devoid of "news" for some time. The other outlets are guilty of covering only "news" that fits their playbook, but at least they cover something. When was the last time Fox had a reporter on the ground reporting anything? Too vapid for my tastes since the election.
Harf, Rivera, Manuel,Smith and Williams, plus Rove throwing constant shade on the Donald, O´Reilly relentlessly telling our guy what he should do, andWallace doing his best to put the knife in on Sunday, it´s no wonder Trump turns to tweeting. The Murdock boys and their wives are at work.
Have a feeling they wanted to get rid of the Judge and this gave them the reason.
It looks like Fox got the same kind of illness that beset Democrats when they voted for Obamacare, etc and basically fell on their swords, got subsequently voted out next election because of their actions. Well if they want to walk the plank, head on out and we´ll even push. Talk about indoctrination and headed for ruin! All those Fox personalities mentioned above are tanking the channel and it looks like they are racing for the bottom. The roll down hill all probably started about the time Fox caved to George Soros in getting rid of Glenn Beck. Beck said in one broadcast Soros spent one million dollars to kill his 170 show and get him ousted.
I quit Fox a long time ago. But when my wife told me about Tucker Carlson, if I can remember when he is on I watch him. He´s a master at taking down dims.
Also, there is a fairly new network on cable. That is One America News Network, it your cable carries it. If not, it has a web site. And another web site, (I don´t know if it has a broadcast network but it´s available on the net) is AXIOS. Both of these are conservative new outfits.
Obama and his cadre of liars,in Government and the MSM, spouted falsehoods throughout his Presidency and not a peep was made by anyone. save Fox News. Now Fox is being stupid at the least in suspending the Good Judge. Chances are Obama and his henchmen and the British Secret Service did what Andrew Napolitano said, but they covered their tracts well!?
It be great if evidence surfaced to vindicate President Trump and the Good Judge soon?
The man who told Napolitano the information confirmed he was the person on Brian Stalter´s show. I don´t think Stalter is smart enough to have figured it out, but it´s posted on Twitter.
Any way, this is a good way to keep Napolitano from saying anything more. I´m guessing he is going to be called in to testify as a witness, so best not to get him to say anything more that could possibly conflict or reveal who the dirty people are.
I think this was more of a protection plan for the Judge than anything else.

#26 set up a twitter account. Sheer volume of tweets work. Tweet Bill Shine and Neil Cavuto. Neil is a VPtook me a bit to get the hang of it but I did.
I´ve decided Shep Smith´s bias is to offset Hannity´s bias. I agree with Hannity but deplore his ego driven style. I disagree with Shep but admittedly admire his equally ego driven style. Except for his Katrina meltdown, IMO, no one anchors a natural disaster as well as Shep. Hannity couldn´t come close. We would have to hear how he once washed dishes, roofed houses or hurt his shoulder in the midst of someone´s personal loss. I am certain being a son if the south drove She´s Katrina meltdown.
Yet FNC continues to air contributors who push unsubstantiated memes more consistent with Establishment thought. (Not to mention that the good judge´s claims are embarrassing to the Establishment intelligence community.) Should anyone be surprised? What News Corp. chooses to air on broadcast FNS should be the "tell" - not much different from what you will see on the other broadcast alphabets. Why are Chris Wallace and Shep Smith News Corp´s faces to the general public? FNC has just become a place to "park" those with a more conservative bent, and use their numbers to build up the company. Now is is time for News Corp. to "move on".
It is time for us to "move on", too. Fortunately, there are other outlets for our news, and the number is increasing.

I hasten to say that I don´t think Fox gives a damn. Early this morning it channel flipped and there was the pontificating, purer than pure, nasty, truly ugly AB Stoddard spewing her crap while attempting to look as though she´s just bodily ascended into the heavenly stratosphere. She´s a pig which means they are booking her continually if only to annoy people like me.
Andrew Napolitano is one reason I´ve continued with some Fox—and the whiz kids have now killed him too. Keep it up, Fox.I´m now seeing bumper stickers that say; Turn off FOX. You won´t miss it. I have all but tuned out—just a limited number of programs and so far I don´t miss anything.

I like the judge too! Watch Fox & Friends, Hannity, O´Reilly sometimes & Tucker now that "Blondie" is gone. Lou Dobbs & Varney are also on my schedule along with "old time" movies on many channels. Sure miss "old America" but also realize this is Divine Design - hope Trump can fulfill his mission.
Between listening to Rush and reading Lucianne & Drudge, I have a pretty good handle on things. After seeing that Neera Tanden witch on Fox News Sunday, along with Rahm Emmanuel´s brother, and Chris Wallace, I just turned it off. Garbage. Why on earth would they pay to have than Tanden thing on there? Not only wrong, but extremely obnoxious.
The Washington Post´s Bob Woodward warned on Wednesday that there are people from the Obama administration who could be facing criminal charges for unmasking the names of Trump transition team members from surveillance of foreign officials. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said earlier that he had briefed Trump on new information, unrelated to an investigation into Russian activities, that suggested that several members of Trump´s transition team and perhaps Trump himself had their identities "unmasked" after their communications were intercepted by U.S. intelligence officials. The revelation is notable because identities of Americans are generally supposed to remain
Former Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon had some tough words for Democrats tonight over a report that some in the Senate are considering a deal to confirm Neil Gorsuch. According to Politico, even though there are Democrats standing firm against Gorsuch because of how Merrick Garland was treated, there are some attempting to get concessions as part of a deal: The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a commitment from Republicans not to kill the filibuster for a subsequent vacancy during President Donald Trump’s
Previously we discussed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson having a conflict in schedules with a Brussels NATO meeting. Both Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Chinese President Xi Jinping are visiting President Trump and Secretary Tillerson in the first week of April. The Brussels NATO meeting was scheduled for April 5th and 6th. The U.S. leftist media tried to make a controversy over the scheduling conflict. However, now NATO has agreed to change their meeting date. (Photo) WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of NATO says he is certain a semiannual meeting of the alliance’s foreign ministers can be rescheduled so
Disgraced anchor Brian Williams, who has a history of not telling the truth, on Wednesday offered a skeptical take on the claim by a Republican Congressman that Donald Trump´s aides were surveilled during the presidential transition. Regarding the assertions made by Representative Devin Nunes, Williams explained in a doubting tone: “[Nunes] says he is now in receipt of information. It´s intelligence information that he found alarming enough to go down to the White House and brief the President. [This is] not traditionally the role of the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.” Williams, who falsely said he was shot down
The economic boycott of North Carolina over the state’s controversial “bathroom law” that requires men and women to use their respective bathrooms in public facilities is a failure. As reported by Bradford and Valerie Richardson in the Washington Times: Tourism has thrived: Hotel occupancy, room rates and demand for rooms set records in 2016, according to the year-end hotel lodging report issued last week by VisitNC, part of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina. Meanwhile, North Carolina ranked fourth in the nation for attracting and expanding businesses with the arrival of 289 major projects, and seventh in projects per
London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has already been controversial for his ‘openness’ towards Islamic immigrants with no plans what so ever to help assimilate them to Western culture. Well, with today’s attacks that left at least four dead and many injured, we are reminded of Sadiq Khan’s chilling remarks that terrorism is ‘part & parcel’ of living in a large city. Via DailyMail: The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has said that living with terror attacks – like the one that hit New York at the weekend – is ‘part and parcel of living in a big city’. Mr Khan told
Horrifying footage shows the moment a a woman plunged into the River Thames as a car ploughs onto the pavement in a terror attack in the heart of London. Incredibly she was rescued alive from the river following the atrocity, which saw three members of the public killed on the bridge before the driver stabbed a police officer. The unarmed officer who died has been named by Scotland Yard as 48-year-old father Keith Palmer. The attacker was shot dead by officers outside the Houses of Parliament. (Video/Photo) It is not known whether the woman fell or jumped, but initial reports from
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said the FBI has not responded to a March 15 letter asking the agency to turn over documents it has related to surveillance reports which may have incidentally captured the identities of some U.S. citizens last fall. "I´ll tell you, NSA is being cooperative," Nunes said. "But, you know, so far, the FBI has not told us whether or not they´re going to respond to our March 15 letter which is now a couple of weeks old." In that letter, the committee asked the FBI, CIA and NSA for a complete list of
(Photo) JERUSALEM — In a search for antiquities, Israeli archaeologists have unearthed a far more modern find — century-old liquor bottles that belonged to British soldiers in World War I. The Israel Antiquities Authority said Wednesday it was excavating 250,000-year-old flint tools when the archaeologists stumbled upon hundreds of liquor bottles near a building where British soldiers were garrisoned in 1917. Excavation director Ron Toueg says uniform buttons, belt buckles and riding equipment were found near the city of Ramle in addition to the bottles of gin, whiskey and wine. He said it offered a glimpse into “the everyday life
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes conducts a press conference following his debrief with President Trump discussing the surveillance of the Trump transition team by former President Obama’s intelligence community. [Alternate Video Backup HERE] (Video) […] I briefed the president on the concerns that I had about incidental collection and how it relates to President-Elect Trump and his transition team; and the concerns that I have. As I said earlier, there will be more information hopefully by Friday. The NSA is cooperating very very well; and lastly, I’ll say that the reports that I was able to see did not
Democrats on Wednesday were angry with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., for telling the press that Obama administration intelligence officials appear to have "unmasked" several Trump transition officials who were swept up in routine surveillance. Nunes told reporters Wednesday that the new information he has "bothers" him, because it seems to show that officials revealed the identities of U.S. citizens caught up in routine surveillance of foreigners when they should have remained masked. "What I have read bothers me and I think it should bother the president himself and his team, because I think some of it seems
In a speech to a Scranton, Pennsylvania women´s club on St. Patrick´s Day, Hillary Rodham Clinton waxed nostalgic about her childhood visits to the city where her father grew up. But the two-time Democratic presidential candidate´s glowing picture of the visits is far different from the reality her father´s family struggled through. She made the comments about her childhood trips to Scranton as part of a ´ready to come out of the woods´ political speech, suggesting she plans to get back in the political arena, underscoring reports that she may run for mayor of New York City. Clinton, 69, said
California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters said that she´s ready to impeach President Trump on his 61st day in office. "Get ready for impeachment," Waters tweeted. (Tweet) It´s unknown if Waters was referring to a specific reason to impeach Trump or was just making a general statement. The tweet comes a day after FBI Director James Comey revealed the bureau is looking into any possible contacts between Trump´s campaign and the Russian influence campaign on the presidential campaign. The intelligence community has reported in the past The Kremlin worked against Hillary Clinton´s election and developed a preference for Trump.
Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security. The foundation of the United States’ unrivaled global leadership rests only in part on our military
Chelsea Clinton and a select group of women will be honored next month in New York as Variety’s Lifetime Impact Honorees for humanitarian work. Variety magazine and the Lifetime television network will pay tribute on April 21 to Mrs. Clinton and five other women for their philanthropic endeavors. The 37-year-old will attend the Power of Women: New York luncheon with fellow honorees Jessica Chastain, Gayle King, Blake Lively, Audra McDonald, and Shari Redstone. “At the heart of New York City is a vibrant community of strong women in entertainment, media, and politics whose commitment to philanthropy is inspirational,” said Michelle Sobrino Stearns,
Armed Police have opened fire and shot an intruder inside the grounds of the Houses of Parliament amid reports a car drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. Several shots were fired at around 2.35pm moments after a loud bang was heard near the grounds of Parliament. Three bodies were visible on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down. Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car. Prime Minister Theresa May is said to have been bundled into a car by a plain-clothes police

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, is so New Jersey that her Secret Service codename is “Blueberry,” but what many may not know, is her grandfather allegedly belonged to the Mafia in the 80s. Jimmy “The Brute” DiNatale, Conway’s late grandfather, allegedly had mob ties and was a “significant criminal associate" of Nicodemo “Little Nicky” Scarfo – the heir to the Bruno crime family based in Philadelphia, according to a memorial service page and law enforcement officials who spoke to the Philly Voice. The page lists Kellyanne Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Conway as his granddaughter and describes DiNatale as “a reputed Bruno-Scarfo
Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. on Tuesday said he and his estranged wife Sandi Jackson are $1.8 million in debt thanks to legal bills from their federal criminal prosecution and mounting fees from an acrimonious divorce playing out in courtrooms in two cities. Jackson Jr. talked to reporters during an at-times rambling question-and-answer session following a brief hearing in his divorce case at the Daley Center, opining on the state of Washington politics and the best way to settle the couple’s bills. Neither Jackson nor his wife, former alderman Sandi Jackson, has worked since their release from prison after serving sentences
The family of Seth Rich, a staffer for the Democratic National Committee who was murdered last July in Washington, D.C., has launched a crowdfunding page to raise money for investigating the unsolved case. Aaron Rich, the brother of the victim, created the GoFundMe page on Sunday to draw attention to the unsolved crime that took place July 10 in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Northwest D.C. and raise $200,000. "One thing that no one tells you, and something we weren´t prepared to hear when we lost Seth, is that if a case isn´t solved immediately, it could take months or years before
As Republicans hail Judge Neil Gorsuch as an "outstanding" Supreme Court nominee, Democrats are lining up against him for partisan reasons. "My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday. "And that is, there is a cloud now hanging over the head of the president, and while that´s happening, to have a lifetime appointment made by this president seems unseemly, and there ought to be delay." (Video) (Earlier Tuesday, in remarks on the Senate floor, Schumer said it would be "unseemly" to move forward so fast with confirming Gorsuch while the "gray
South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday questioned Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch about what it would take to impeach President Trump. (Snip) "In case President Trump is watching, which he may very well be, one you did a good job picking Judge Gorsuch," Graham said to laughs, "and number two—here´s the bad part—if you start waterboarding people, you may get impeached. Is that a fair summary?" "Senator, the impeachment power belongs to this body," Gorsuch answered.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a delay of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation on Tuesday given the ongoing FBI investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. “You can bet, if the shoe were on the other foot and a Democratic president was under investigation by the FBI, the Republicans would be howling at the moon about filling a Supreme Court seat in such circumstances,” Schumer said on the floor. Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move
State Waste: The Golden State´s vaunted bullet-train project, planned to connect San Francisco to Los Angeles, may be in its financial death throes. If so, it´s probably the best fiscal news for the Golden State in years. To say that Gov. Jerry Brown´s pet project, the so-called high-speed train, is troubled would be an understatement. From the very beginning, it has been a testament to political hubris, fiscal irresponsibility, outright lies and abysmal planning. The bullet train idea was floated on a blustery gust of political promises in 2008, when proponents put the high-speed rail to the state´s voters in
