Megyn Kelly’s highly-anticipated interview with radio host and provocateur Alex Jones drew 3.5 million viewers Sunday night, the smallest audience since her debut on NBC. The interview was preceded by a week of controversy. Critics argued that NBC shouldn’t be giving a platform to Jones, who is known for promoting conspiracy theories such as his claim that the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, was a hoax created to promote gun-control policies. JPMorgan Chase & Co. asked to remove its local and digital ads from the episode and the interview didn’t air on Connecticut’s NBC
Comments: Megyn may soon be exiting Stage left to join Katie Couric doing podcasts.
I am not sure who they thought would want to watch that interview. We have Megyn Kelly, whose claim to fame is that she used to be eye candy, interviewing Alex Jones, whose claim to fame is that he made Jesse Ventura appear rational.
You used to be pretty good Megyn. You began to read your press and built up your image in your mind. You pushed and pushed, your clothes began to look slutty; you obviously practiced your looks in the mirrors and you ended up becoming the news. Remember Jane Pauley? Nice looking young woman, well dressed and professional. You should have tried emulating her. There are others. I don´t think you´re going to end up in that group. You will either fade away or become a female Jerry Springer.
Megan chose to go to the dark side and it shows. She is not as cute and perky as she thinks she is. I would not watch NBC no matter who she interviews. What a boring show. Never heard of Alex Jones before last weeks hype.
Anybody who can´t see Megyn Kelly for the pushy overly ambitious valueless person she is, has no people sense. Also, her voice is venomous. Frankly, I´m surprised the leftists don´t love her. Kelly and leftists have identical moral standards, i.e. none.
China has entered the tense seas off the Korean Peninsula with guns blazing, showing its military might at a time when Beijing has warned two belligerent rivals, the U.S. and North Korea, from further escalating their nuclear standoff. After closing off a 15,000-square-mile stretch of the East China Sea, the Chinese navy launched live-fire exercises Monday involving dozens of ships and submarines, more than 10 aircraft and a number of coastal troops in the Bohai Sea and Yellow Sea, according to the state-run Xinhua News Agency. The drill, which reportedly included both offensive and defensive maneuvers against targets
The Trump administration has cleared two counties accused of having “sanctuary” policies that defy federal immigration laws, ensuring they will be eligible to continue to receive grant money. Clark County in Nevada and Miami-Dade County in Florida received letters this month from the Justice Department certifying that they comply with laws that require state and local police and sheriff’s departments to share information with federal immigration agents. They were among 10 jurisdictions the Justice Department had asked to explain themselves this year after the Obama administration flagged them last year for potential
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson got it exactly right in telling North Korea’s Kim Jong-un that the U.S. is not an enemy – or a friend. We are not threatening his rule or his government. We do not want to attack his country. We just want him to stop with the intercontinental ballistic missiles and matching nukes. We’d like him to stop spitting at us his threats of mass destruction. Mr. Kim’s tongue can destabilize the Korean Peninsula and the whole region — China, Japan and the others. A military clash with Pyongyang would be mutually destructive to Mr. Kim and his country’s 25 million people as well as to Seoul’s 10 million souls,
The U.S. is sending dozens more Marines to Afghanistan, according to three U.S. defense officials. Task Force Southwest, based in Helmand Province in southwestern Afghanistan, requested the additional Marines to help with internal force protection, the officials said. U.S. Central Command approved the request but the Marines have not yet moved into the country. There are currently more than 300 Marines assigned to Task Force Southwest, and the total additional force is less than 100 marines, the officials said. The Marines will deploy from the Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force Crisis Response Central Command,
Henry Kissinger has warned that destroying Isis could lead to an “Iranian radical empire”. The former diplomat has suggested that once Isis is defeated, if Iran occupies the free territory, the result could lead to the emergence of a new empire. The 94-year-old, who was the Secretary of State under President Richard Nixon, also spoke about the complications of taking sides in Middle Eastern conflicts. “In these circumstances, the traditional adage that the enemy of your enemy can be regarded as your friend no longer applies. In the contemporary Middle East, the enemy of your enemy may also be your enemy.
U.S. regulators on Friday warned a New York fertility doctor to stop marketing an experimental procedure that uses DNA from three people -- a mother, a father and an egg donor -- to avoid certain genetic diseases. The doctor, John Zhang, used the technique to help a Jordanian couple have a baby boy last year. According to the Food and Drug Administration, Zhang said his companies wouldn´t use the technology in the U.S. again without permission, yet they continue to promote it. The procedure is not approved in the U.S., and Congress has barred the FDA from even reviewing proposals to conduct
President Donald Trump has ushered in a new age of politics, one that’s not been seen since Ronald Reagan’s day, that supporters see as putting people over pols, citizens over Capitol Hill. And boy, are the RINOs on edge about that. So oust ‘em, some say. The trouble is it’s easier said than done. Here’s why. And more importantly, here’s how to do it. “Few things in life are more predictable than the chances of an incumbent member of the U.S. House of Representatives winning reelection,” the Center for Responsive Politics wrote, in its OpenSecrets.org website. “With wide name recognition, and usually an insurmountable
Scientists have hailed a “breakthrough” technology capable of regrowing damaged organs and healing serious wounds with the single touch of a penny-sized pad. The new device uses nanochips to reprogramme skin cells which then generate any type of cell necessary for medical treatment. The non-invasive procedure takes less than a second and in laboratory trials was found to restore the function of badly damaged blood vessels within days. Dubbed tissue nanotransfection (TNT), the technique works by placing a small pad of nanochips over a damaged area. A small electric current then fires DNA into the skin cells, converting them
(Video) - In its rush to welcome over one million illegal immigrant youths from Latin America, the Obama administration turned a blind eye to criminal acts and eased rules governing legal entry, according to newly uncovered documents. Emails, budgets and training manuals provided to the Immigration Reform Law Institute show, for example, that the controversial Obama program to defer deportation allowed them to stay if they held several documents, such as Social Security numbers and federal tax return checks, that are illegal for non-citizens to have. (Snip) The DACA program is coming in focus this fall as
Washington - President Donald Trump on Monday lashed out at Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, calling him a "phony Vietnam con artist" after the lawmaker expressed concerns about the Justice Department´s pursuit of leakers and embraced a special counsel´s probe of Russia meddling in the election and possible collusion with Trump campaign officials. In a series of tweets from his vacation in New Jersey, Trump dismissed the "hoax Russian collusion" and revived a 2010 embarrassment for Blumenthal. The Connecticut lawmaker, a Marine Corps reservist during Vietnam, had to apologize for saying he had served in the war.
North Korea vowed "thousands-fold revenge" against the United States over new sanctions imposed by the United Nations on Pyongyang in response to its nuclear and missile programs, reports USA Today. North Korea´s threat followed the U.N. Security Council´s unanimous approval of sanctions that were drafted by the United States to include a ban on exports including coal, iron, lead and more. "We are ready to retaliate with far bigger actions to make the U.S. pay a price for its crime against our country and people," the Hermit Kingdom´s central news agency reported. President Donald Trump struck a more positive
A Chinese restaurant has come under fire for offering discounts to women depending on their bra size, it´s reported. According to the Qianjiang Evening Post, local people complained to the council after seeing posters advertising discounts for the Trendy Shrimp restaurant at a mall in Hangzhou, the main city of coastal Zhejiang province. The company´s adverts showed a line-up of cartoon women in their underwear with the slogan "The whole city is looking for Breasts". It listed discounts for women depending on their cup size, with greater offers available to women with bigger busts. One representative complaint said the posters
California Democratic Representative Maxine Waters wouldn’t rule out the concept of an all-black political party when asked about it on Monday. Waters joined “The Breakfast Club” radio show on Monday morning and was asked if it was time for black people to form their own political party. “No, not at this point,” Waters said. “You have to show that you’re willing and you’re able to put the numbers together and exercise your influence.” “We still are not voting our influence yet,” she continued. “What we should do is organize our power, exercise our power, particularly in the Democratic Party because
Malia Obama lost her iPhone at Lollapalooza in Chicago over the weekend. The former first daughter was spotted doing some wild dance moves at the music festival, and was captured on video jamming and rolling around on the floor with a friend while the Killers performed. Unfortunately, due to her energetic moves, Malia also lost her phone, and was later seen visiting a Chicago Apple Store with Secret Service agents in tow. A witness told us, “Malia came into the Apple Store to get her iPhone replaced, but things didn’t go exactly [as planned]. The Apple Store couldn’t immediately help
Three-quarters of Americans do not trust President Trump, according to a new CNN poll published Monday night. Six months into his presidency, 38 percent of those polled said they approve of Trump´s performance, while 56 percent say they disapprove. Trump is also faring worse with his base, the poll showed. Among Republicans, his strong approval rating fell from 73 percent in February to 59 percent now. Among non-college educated white people, 35 percent of those polled strongly approve of Trump, down 12 points since February. The CNN poll was conducted by SSRS by telephone Aug. 3 through Aug. 6 among
The front page of the Saturday Metro section of The Washington Post offered breaking news on Christian attitudes. “Christians are far more likely than non-Christians to blame poverty on a lack of effort, a poll found.” This poll from the Post and the liberal Kaiser Family Foundation is three months old, taken from April 13 to May 1. This is not just a poll question; it’s begging for overgeneralization, with “the poor are mostly lazy” being judged by liberals as akin to “Muslims are mostly terrorists” or “Catholic priests are mostly child abusers.” As a citizen, I’d refuse to answer
Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been getting quite a bit of attention lately for her strong opposition to President Trump and frequent calls for his impeachment. She called President Trump “the worst” president she’s ever seen in a recent interview with “The Breakfast Club” saying he “believes in nothing. I think he believes in nothing," Waters said. "I think that he cares about nothing. I think that he´s capable of doing outrageous things. I believe it is possible to impeach him,” she said. “How long is it going to take? I don´t know, but I give it to about December."
When former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and President Bill Clinton were busted secretly meeting aboard Lynch´s private plane last summer by a local television reporter, a number of government watchdog groups filed lawsuits for documents surrounding the meeting. After all the FBI, under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice, was actively investigating Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information at the time. In response to information requests, the FBI and DOJ said documents didn´t exist. Fast forward more than a year and it turns out hundreds of documents related to the meeting do exist and show the Department
The Republican Party should have cut off Donald Trump’s “birther” movement in its infancy, an anti-Trump Republican senator said Sunday. Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona said he regrets that his fellow Republicans kept quiet years ago as Trump rallied his phony conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States. “I wish that we, as a party, would have stood up...when the birtherism thing was going along,” Flake said on NBC News´ “Meet the Press.” “That was particularly ugly.” Flake also condemned his party for supporting Trump’s “lock her up” campaign rally chants about Hillary Clinton,
Hillary Clinton wants to preach. That’s what she told Bill Shillady, her long-time pastor, at a recent photo shoot for his new book about the daily devotionals he sent her during the 2016 campaign. Scattered bits of reporting suggest that ministry has always been a secret dream of the two-time presidential candidate: Last fall, the former Newsweek editor Kenneth Woodward revealed that Clinton told him in 1994 that she thought “all the time” about becoming an ordained Methodist minister. She asked him not to write about it, though: “It will make me seem much too pious.” The incident perfectly captures
The Department of Justice on Friday released 413 pages of emails related to a controversial private meeting between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch during the FBI’s investigation into then-presidential-candidate Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi emails. The FBI said earlier such records did not exist. This discharge of information is the result of a lawsuit filed against the DOJ by the American Council for Law and Justice (ACLJ) in November 2016. The newly-released emails mostly include DOJ officials’ conversations with reporters, who were seeking comment on the meeting between Lynch and the former president on an airport tarmac in
President Trump´s approval rating dropped 5 percentage points in August to a new low of 32%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll, with 59% saying they disapprove of the job he´s doing as president. Trump lost significant support across the board, but saw big declines among areas of core support, including Republicans, Midwesterners, middle-income families, white men and the high-school educated. The results come in the wake of the Senate´s failure to repeal ObamaCare, upheavals in the White House staff, the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the election, and the daily beatings administered by the mainstream press. Among Republicans, for example,
While President Trump spends the next two weeks away from the White House, scores of workers will undertake the next steps in a long-planned renovation of the West Wing. White House staffers have been relocated while stairs and leaks are repaired, electrical systems upgraded, walls repainted, drapes cleaned and a modernized system of heating and air conditioning is installed. The massive 24/7 repair work area is an ideal metaphor for the troubled Trump administration rolling toward its eighth month. [Snip] However, one serious problem remains unaddressed – the deteriorating relations between the Republican president and the Republican Congress, something that
Deyon Kaigler said in December that he was done stealing cars. His friends were still posting videos of high-speed joyrides to Facebook, wearing key fobs on lanyards around their necks. But Deyon, 16, had decided it was too dangerous. "I value my life," he said. "I´m not trying to be dead." Just eight months later, on Sunday morning, three boys died and Deyon was led away in handcuffs after a fiery, high-speed crash sent a stolen Ford Explorer pinwheeling through the air down Tampa Road in Palm Harbor, bursting into flames. Eight teenage car thieves from Pinellas have now died in the
