You Can’t Fire Bill O’Reilly
American Thinker, by Colin Flaherty

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 4/21/2017 2:03:04 PM

Fox cannot fire Bill O’Reilly because it is not their platform. That belongs to me. And you. And O’Reilly. It certainly does not belong to a couple of trust fund kids and their trophy wives playing dress-up with Daddy’s toys. Nor does it belong to clueless analysts who say no one will notice when O’Reilly does not show up for work this week. "Fox has built a powerful platform that is the go-to place for people with a certain worldview and so to some degree it doesn’t matter who is on,” said Brian Wieser, a senior analyst of advertising, media and internet

"Fox has built a powerful platform that is the go-to place for people with a certain worldview and so to some degree it doesn’t matter who is on...” Considering the lineup of Rivera, Williams, Harf, and Bechel; it is no longer my go-to place.

FTA: Tucker Carlson is a great guy. People like him well enough. But he’s no O’Reilly. I might not watch O’Reilly every night, but when I want something with a bit of a news edge — and yes, something with No Spin — O’Reilly is what I want.

He is so right. Tucker is more of a conservative and a sharp debater, but he is no O´Reilly and not so compelling to watch. Also, I like Dana but she is no Megyn.

Fox has lost its two stars JUST as I re-connect with cable. Bill and Megyn could argue but somehow not generate the palpable tension that turns me off to both Tucker and Hannity sometimes.

That said, there was no choice but to oust BOR. But it´s a shame.

I didn´t watch BOR as he wasn´t my favorite but The Lachlan liberals made a huge mistake. Fox is fading quickly Igor me. Way too many leftovers from the Obama administration and the regular losers, Geraldo, Beckle,Juan Williams, Shep Smith, Dana Perino (who can´t decide whether or not she´s a conservative or a liberal) and lately Abby Huntsman on weekends who gets more obnoxious every time she´s on and finally, Ezekiel Emmanuel the creator of Obamacare. Why waste my time with Fox?

I don´t disagree with the posters but where else does one go for TV news? The MSN are absolute propaganda mills. Does one spend time separating wheat from chaff? You bet! But that is part of being a thinking adult. That being said, if the twerps keep screwing around with a successful format, I may go solely to the internet news sources.

They did fire BOR. He is 67, has hundreds of millions, plenty of fans, and will do just fine. He has been doing this job for 20 years, so a change may be a positive in his life. With his money and following, there are plenty of platforms, and new ones. I hope he starts a new one. I have fired the msm, and Mr. O´Reilly might like to know, I fired Fox 10 years ago.

Seems O´Reilly got caught in his own SPIN Cycle at the Laundromat!

I always hated it when he called his show the ´No Spin Zone´ then sat down with Leftists and let them spout their BS talking points and he would just let them get away with it...barring some inane argument he would toss at them that just made their point stronger.

Don´t let the door hit you in the arse on your way out!

So, that just might be the problem. FNC, according to Forbes, is worth about 12 billion, and they have annual sales of about 14.5 billion. So, what is the vale of FNC to some panty waste kids worth 45 billion when daddy dies? It is the "New York Times Syndrome". The whole network is just a play things to sometimes take out and go speeding up and down the street with. So what if it gets a few dents and scrapes? Then, when they get tired of it, they will toss it aside and go get something else to amuse themselves with. Never mind how much they degrade the neighborhood peace and happiness. It´s not a bother to them at all.

I think we´ve all had that "Neighbor" from time to time.

There seems to be a lot of folks of that ilk going without jobs. I hope that it won’t take too long for something like the Fox of old will spring up. I don’t need to have something that “follows a conservative line”, but I want something that take what conservatives say seriously.

Take Down the Statues of Robert Byrd
American Thinker, by Daniel John Sobieski    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 8/17/2017 9:28:58     Post Reply
President Trump had it right when, during his press conference on infrastructure he addressed the nonstop questions on Charlottesville, he asked if those obsessed with fears of white nationalism if they would also remove statues and monuments to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, both slaveowners, in addition to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. (snip)The alt-left seems very selective in its righteous indignation, ignoring the historical record of a Democratic Party which embraced white nationalism, founded the KKK, and honored one of the great bigots of modern times -- Robert Byrd. The alt-left’s historical amnesia omits the fact that

For the first time in American history there are multiple generations without an essential national cause. Every generation of American society since the nation’s founding up to the 1970’s has been swept up in one of three indispensible national movements -- the abolition of slavery, women’s suffrage and the elimination of government sanctioned racism. (snip)while waiting for a flight a few months ago, I overheard a conversation between two women in their late thirties, who were apparently college professors or instructors, and a trio of college age young adults, whom I assumed were students. The academics were regaling the naïve

In the midst of the maelstrom of breaking news of the past several days, the outlines of a big story affecting the future of the Fox News Channel are beginning to emerge. They involve a major makeover of Fox News´s ailing prime-time schedule and a rising new star, Eboni K. Williams. After the dust settles, Williams, whose current show, The Fox News Specialists, looks as though it´s headed for oblivion after the coming shake-up, may wind up on the fast track to cable news stardom.On Monday, August 14, Matt Drudge let the cat out of the bag, as he occasionally

Big Plans on the Hard Left

One thing overlooked in the uproar over Charlottesville is that this was, evidently, merely a dress rehearsal for a much larger-scale effort planned for this Autumn. Activist groups on the left evidently have something big in store for November 4th. The idea seems to be a revival of the 1971 “Days of Rage” – an effort to shut down the country as a whole to force a change in government. Thanks to one of many political mailing lists that AT finds itself on, we received an email last Sunday from the “Stop Mass Incarceration Network,” a little-known left-wing agitation group, one

The violence in Charlottesville, and the tearing down of Robert E. Lee’s statue there, and in Durham has made me angry and unhappy. (snip)Finally, we have a leader who fights back against the tyranny of the culture-changing socialists. Trump understands these actions are warm-ups. The progressives are tearing down Confederate statues and they are kicking and spitting on the memorials to the dead because they cannot yet kick and spit on President Trump and his voters.

When Robert Mueller took the gig with the Department of Justice to lead the silent coup against the Trump administration, things looked great. 100% or close to it of the media was reporting different levels and incidents of “Russian collusion.” (snip)All the king’s horses and all the king’s men have not found Russian collusion with Trump. Even Mueller likely knows it, because he is now investigating everything but Russian collusion. You do not expand an investigation’s scope because you have found a deep vein of criminality tied to prima facie Russian collusion -- if you did, you would be going

Skokie and Charlottesville:
Compare and Contrast Nazi marches
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 8/15/2017 9:05:08     Post Reply
Forty years ago, American liberals still celebrated freedom of speech, when American Nazis decided to hold a march through the heavily Jewish Chicago suburb of Skokie, Illinois. The American Civil Liberties Union sprang to the defense of the Nazis’ right to march, and a Supreme Court decision, no less, in the case National Socialist Party v. Skokie, established the principle that even a hateful symbol like the Swastika is covered by the First Amendment protections for speech. The march was held in Skokie with no violence whatsoever reported, and the case became an opportunity for liberals to congratulate themselves on their

Those who control the narrative, control the truth. Following Charlottesville, all must understand the broader context of current events -- the conservative movement (not to be confused with media created Alt-Right or White Nationalists) desires the restoration of America´s founding principles, as documented in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. (snip)There is a counter movement that seeks America´s destruction, and the imposition of a new covenant, predicated on the wisdom of man, or more particularly, a select group of men, who seek to manage the affairs of all man. These two contradictory principles are reflected as liberty or

Solar energy is not always a fraud. If you live off the electric grid, and you have a reasonable amount of sunshine, solar power, backed up by batteries, can be a good option for getting a modest amount of electricity. It will not be cheap electricity. (snip)the true value of rooftop solar electricity is the cost of fuel consumption avoided when the solar is operating. The result is that the utility is often effectively forced to pay retail rates, typically about 13 cents per KWh, for electricity whose true value is about 3 cents per KWh. The owner of the

The signs are all around us that the subversion and worse is afoot among those who feel that the federal government belongs to them, not to the voters of the Republic. You might even say that think of it as “our thing.” Right out in plain sight, we were warned last week in the words of someone who worked for Robert Mueller when he was head of the FBI. It was on CNN, so few people saw it, and as CNN habitués, they may not have considered it disturbing. Nonetheless, host Jake Tapper was sufficiently alarmed to clarify whether this was

We’re all so used to double standards from the media that we barely notice them. But right now, the unfairness is so acute that we must take a step back and remember something hideous that happened only this year. President Trump is being roundly criticized by most of the media for failing to criticize one side over the other in the Charlottesville riots, even before the exact sequence of events is understood, such as who initiated the violence. The verdict in this case must precede the evidence. So let’s take a short trip down memory lane and recall how the media

My colleague Rick Moran is highly critical of President Trump for equally condemning those who came to Charlottesville, VA seeking violence on behalf of their version of justice in racial issues: While the president condemned the violence and hate, he softened his criticism by blaming "all sides" for the violence. This may have been technically accurate. (snip)I am sorry, but maintaining that a president of the United States must shape his actions according to what the media and his critics (but I repeat myself) might say is an abject surrender. This is the standard operating procedure of Republicans pre-Trump, and

Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone´s face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter.

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"

As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”

NEW YORK- They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump´s loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself. Even as Trump´s zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar.

The Presidency: President Trump´s statements regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville have created a firestorm that, even by the unique Trump-era standards, appears unprecedented. Unless Trump can undo the damage, it could cripple his administration. In his presidential memoir, "Decision Points," President George W. Bush wrote about the fallout from 2015´s Hurricane Katrina and his own mishandling of the situation. In particular, he admitted that a photo taken of him flying over New Orleans was a huge mistake.
