Sources: Chris Matthews Runs
An Abusive Work Environment

Daily Caller, by Amber Athey

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/1/2018 5:47:43 AM

MSNBC Host Chris Matthews runs an at times openly derisive and brazenly sexist news operation that has led at least some staffers to describe themselves as victims of “battered wives syndrome,” according to three of his show’s guests and two former producers who spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller. Two former NBC producers independently alleged Matthews would rate the looks of his female guests on a scale and said Matthews was so abusive that staff joked about being battered women. The interviews in total paint Matthews as a tyrant liable to fly off the handle at the slightest mistake, who was

No surprise here. I have yet to find any prominent liberal/left figure not to be be arrogant and abusive.

The Left is a ´Bonfire of the Vanities´.

When will academia pull it´s head out ?

Look how far "Science" has fallen.

The ´Arts´ can be forgiven as they admit to living in Fantasy-land.

"Archie Bunker" was the poster child for evil conservatives who refused to listen to any dissenting opinion.....yet the Left has used it´s official authority to trample free speech on a wholesale basis....and never looked back.

Who are the truly narrow-minded ?

We knew Chrissy was nuts even before his "Thrill up the leg" comment about Obama. MSNBC is a collector paradise for liberal nut cases. CNN is another one. Why do liberals have to be so crazy? Because their ideas do not work in a conservative population like here in the US. But, that does not stop these idiots from trying. I´m kind of grateful this is the case. It puts a bell on these crazy people and also shows how healthy the Republic is for the crazies like Chrissy being considered by so many to be nuts.

I´m no Matthews fan but this entire article is garbage.It´s filled with feelings, as if anyone ever cared about how someone else felt. Mind readers. Comparing the behavior to battering women is an insult of the highest order.

Remember when Matthews subbed for Limbaugh?

During the Clinton-Lewinsky days and CM was openly critical of POTUS for damaging the Dem brand.

Matthews had worked on the Hill and talked of Republican Congresspeople coming to work, greeting the security people and knowing their names. The Dims would ignore them or be openly hostile.

Others have told similar stories. Somewhere along the way CM lost the plot and became what he apparently hated. Back at ya, sheethead.

Many years ago, I remember one time when Chris had his wife on his show. At the time she was with the local NBC affiliate in DC. His abusive streak was displayed when he snapped ugly at her right on the air. His nasty remark towards her gave me an uncomfortable and lasting impression about him. Yeah, I can totally understand his female staff´s claim with the batter wives syndrome tag.

Matthews has always been an Ass, grade A, so none of this is a surprise. But I also think this targeting (and I am female) or any and all (e.g. Jeffrey Tambor, which is ridiculous) is getting way out of hand. BUT I also think someone like Matthews, in a position of power and with the mentality of a teenaged boy, presents a real problem to women who want careers.

And by the by, he is also diabetic so alcoholism is NOT an issue, or he would be dead by now. He is just an obnoxious man who listens to nobody but himself, and if the women on the staff (and I´ll bet the men as well) can´t deal with him they should look elsewhere---unless there is some prestige involved with having worked for him on the resume.

-Replace with rich radical women, people with dark skin, gays, and Muslims, preferably two or three-fers. Yes O and his fellow travelers are right behind this.

Baltimore Files Climate Lawsuit Against
Oil Companies After Similar Suit Dismissed
Washington Free Beacon, by Todd Shepherd    Original Article

Officials with the City of Baltimore announced a lawsuit Friday against major oil producers such as Exxon, BP, and Shell Oil, claiming the companies caused damages by contributing to global climate change. "This lawsuit which we filed this morning is aimed to hold the fossil fuel companies accountable for the harm that has been inflicted on our community," said Baltimore City Solicitor Andre M. Davis said. The lawsuit is extremely similar to others filed by the cities of San Francisco, New York City, the city and county governments of Boulder, Colorado, and the state of Rhode Island, but some of these efforts

I am a strong advocate for holding liberals to the same rules they hold everyone else to. Far too often we see conservatives hammered for something they did or said, even if it’s taken out of context, and hounded from the public stage because an angry liberal mob was pointed in their direction for no other reason than the left’s desire for a scalp. While it is satisfying to claim one of theirs after they claim, or try to claim, one of ours, it’s a sad game that ends with everyone losing. This game is nothing new, but it has gotten

Why is Mueller handing off key cases?

Something has been going on with Robert Mueller´s investigation of people thought to have played significant roles in the Trump-Russia affair. The special counsel, assigned to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Trump," has been farming out seemingly important parts of the investigation to offices outside his own. In April, Mueller referred an investigation of close Trump associate Michael Cohen to federal prosecutors in New York. This month, the U.S. attorney in Washington — not Mueller — indicted Maria Butina on charges of being an unregistered Russian agent. And also

U.S. Rep.

Waters issued a statement Saturday saying that the protesters who appeared outside her Los Angeles office Thursday did so despite her calls to “steer clear” of a planned protest by a far-right group, the Oath Keepers. “Many people from within the community heeded my advice and steered clear of the event, but there were groups of individuals who felt compelled to participate and

The fatality was identified as Melyda Corado, an employee of the Trader Joe´s store, in the city´s Silver Lake section, according to a Twitter message posted by her brother and reported by local media.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif — From Malibu to Santa Cruz, wealthy people are blocking access to California’s publicly owned beaches. And no group has fought the public longer than the gated community of Hollister Ranch, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles. For more than 36 years, residents there have spent millions of dollars on lawyers and lobbyists to bar the hoi polloi from an 8.5-mile-long beach adorned with several coves. In May, after more than four years of litigation over public access to the beach, a settlement was announced between the ranch cooperative, on one side, and the California Coastal Commission

Davis worked for former Trump aide Roger Stone for a decade, and had numerous interactions with Stone and Andrew Miller -- who ran Davis´ campaign for Governor and who was subpoenaed by Mueller a month ago. Sources familiar with the matter tell us, Davis´ lawyer is negotiating the scope of the subpoena with Mueller´s team.

Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle is planning to leave the network to campaign for the 2018 midterm elections with her reported boyfriend Donald Trump Jr., CNN reported Friday. Guilfoyle will likely join America First Politics, a pro-Trump nonprofit, according to the network. It’s not known when she’s planning on leaving Fox News. A spokesman for Trump Jr. tweeted Friday that Guilfoyle joining Trump Jr. on the campaign trail “is a win for the entire GOP.” “Kim is one of the most influential voices in the #MAGA movement and knows how to light up a crowd,” the spokesman, Andrew Surabian, tweeted.

Are you tired of all the winning yet? If you are a conservative who has followed the trajectory of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), you might be getting to that point. From its inception, the CFPB has been a big government liberal’s dream: no Congressional oversight, limitless investigative authority, and a leadership succession plan that seemed more feudal than democratic. Indeed, when CFPB Director Richard Cordray resigned in November 2017, the Left claimed he, not President Donald Trump, had the authority to appoint his successor. According to them, Deputy Director Leandra English was Cordray’s rightful heiress. So when the President appointed Mick

BERLIN — Nazi comparisons have become such frequent occurrences almost anywhere in the world that they rarely draw attention these days. But in Adolf Hitler´s birth country, Austria, they usually still strike a nerve whenever they come up. They certainly did so this week, after Jewish organizations criticized the far-right Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), the ruling coalition party in the state of Lower Austria, over pursuing a proposal that would require Jews to register with the government if they seek to purchase kosher meat. The same rules would apply to Muslims. “This constitutes an attack on Jewish and Muslim life,” the

"What if we were wrong?" That is the question then-President Barack Obama asked as he rode along in his presidential limousine with his foreign policy guru Ben Rhodes. The question came in the aftermath of the surprise presidential election victory by political newcomer and television reality star Donald Trump. Obama questioned whether he and liberals had forgotten how important identity was to people and had pushed a progressive agenda too far, too quickly. Obama wasn´t only wrong in understanding where the electorate was in 2016 but was frequently wrong throughout his presidency.

Sixty-one percent of the people in my county voted for him. Drive through most communities in my town and you’ll still see large blue Trump campaign signs on perfectly manicured lawns.

The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

DUBAI - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday cautioned U.S. President Donald Trump about pursuing hostile policies against Tehran, saying “America should know ... war with Iran is the mother of all wars,” but he did not rule out peace between the two countries, either. Iran faces increased U.S. pressure and looming sanctions after Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 international deal over Iran’s nuclear program. Addressing a gathering of Iranian diplomats, Rouhani said: “Mr Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” the state new agency IRNA reported. “America should know that

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia.
