  3. Fox News hires former DNC chair Donna Brazile who left CNN after tipping off Clinton about 2016 debate questions Paul Farhi,The Independent 19 hours ago Fox News' newest pundit is one CNN rejected after she colluded with Hillarious Clinton's campaign before campaign events in 2016. Fox said on Monday that it has hired Donna Brazile, the former interim Democratic National Committee chair and a long-time CNN commentator before she became embroiled in controversy in 2016. CNN forced Ms Brazile to resign as an on-air contributor in October 2016 after emails revealed that she had tipped off Ms Clinton's aides about questions likely to be asked by CNN moderators during the debates and town hall meetings carried by CNN. At the time, Ms Brazile was highly supportive of Ms Clinton's candidacy. The network said the leaking of the question was a break of its ethics and undermined the impartiality of its campaign coverage. Fox said Ms Brazile would comment on the upcoming presidential campaign on Fox News and Fox Business Network. In announcing Ms Brazile's hiring, it made no mention of the issues surrounding her in 2016. The DNC, which Ms Brazile led on an interim basis during 2016, decided earlier this month to exclude Fox News from televising any of its candidate events. The organisation's chair, Tom Perez, said Fox was too closely aligned with President Donald Trump, leading him to conclude the network could not host "a fair and neutral debate for our candidates." In a statement released on Monday, Ms Brazile said: "I know I'm going to get criticised from my friends in the progressive movement for being on Fox News. My response is that, if we've learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can't have a country where we don't talk to those who disagree with our political views. “There's an audience on Fox News that doesn't hear enough from Democrats. We have to engage that audience and show Americans of every stripe what we stand for rather than retreat into our 'safe spaces' where we simply agree with each other." People at Fox said Ms Brazile would have no role in commenting on any debates or town hall meetings it covers, though Fox will probably have very few of those given the DNC's decision to remove it from consideration in televising Democratic events. Ms Brazile's role in channelling questions to Ms Clinton came to light in emails released by WikiLeaks during the final weeks of the 2016 presidential campaign. The emails came from a hack of the DNC's servers by Russian operatives. CNN said at the time that it was "completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about (Ms Brazile's) interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor." Ms Brazile apparently got her information from conversations with TV One host Roland Martin, who was a guest moderator for one of the CNN debates. She said she learned that one of the questions during a televised town hall meeting in March of that year would involve the death penalty. Another question before a debate with Ms Clinton's chief Democratic primary challenger, senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vt, in Flint, Michigan, concerned the city's ongoing water crisis, although it seems questionable that such a tip was helpful, given that the issue was bound to come up considering the event's location. Ms Brazile said at the time that she offered her resignation when the WikiLeaks emails surfaced showing her telling a senior Clinton adviser, "From time to time, I get the questions in advance." Ms Brazile was scheduled to make her first appearance on Fox on Monday afternoon. https://www.yahoo.com/news/fox-news-hires-former-dnc-164650254.html Good move on Donna's part. If you're going to get verbally beat down by Fox News anyway, you might as well get paid handsomely for it. GO RV, then BV
  4. Never-Trumpers assess his mental health: 'His condition is getting worse' David Knowles Editor Yahoo News•March 18, 2019 Donald Trump’s most recent eruption of invective on Twitter has some Republicans — admittedly, long-standing critics — questioning not just his policies and temperament but his mental health. In a notable string of tweets posted over the weekend, including 29 tweets and retweets on Sunday, the president attacked Google, General Motors, the United Auto Workers, Hillarious Clinton, the Paris climate accord, France, “the Fake News media,” Fox News anchors Shepard Smith, Arthel Neville and Leland Vittert, the late Sen. John McCain, the special counsel’s investigation into his 2016 presidential campaign’s ties with Russia, and a rerun of “Saturday Night Live” from December. Along the way, he found time to retweet conspiracy theorists and demand that Fox News host Jeanine Pirro be reinstated despite her glaringly anti-Muslim commentary. All of this led George Conway, the husband of Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, to take a not-so-subtle swipe at the president by posting sections of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders to his Twitter feed, then concluding with a harsh assessment. Asked if she agreed with her husband, Kellyanne Conway told reporters Monday, “No, I don’t share those concerns.” Other Republicans do, however, including political commentator and editor Bill Kristol, who pointed to the latest invective on Twitter as a giant warning sign. John McCain’s daughter Meghan, a co-host on “The View,” limited her criticism of the president to his comments on her father. “He spends his weekend obsessing over great men because — he knows it and I know it and all of you know it — he will never be a great man. My father was his kryptonite in life and he is his kryptonite in death,” McCain said Monday on “The View,” adding, “Your life is spent on your weekends not with your family, not with your friends, but obsessing, obsessing over great men you could never live up to. That tells you everything you need to know about his pathetic life right now.” At the Washington Post, conservative op-ed columnist Jennifer Rubin attempted to trace the origin of what she sees as Trump’s decline. “Since President Trump’s firing of James B. Comey as FBI director and the appointment of a special counsel, Trump’s mental and emotional health has seemed to fray,” Rubin wrote Monday. “The pace of lies and nonsensical accusations, the resort to conspiracy theories and refusal to conduct himself like an adult (let alone the president) often pick up in the wake of bad news from the special counsel and widespread criticism of the president’s unhinged behavior.” https://news.yahoo.com/citing-weekend-tweets-trump-critics-say-hes-getting-worse-200418256.html GO RV, then BV

  6. Here's a little more in depth explanation to bake your noodle, my friend. Is the United States a Democracy, a Republic, or a Democratic Republic? Best Answer: Ok, in a way, this question is like "Is a tomato a vegetable or a fruit?" Or "Is a square a rectangle or a parallelogram?" Answer: Both altho like the tomato, it is arguable. The term republic means that we have no ruling monarch and that the people have at least some say in the government. It means public thing or public matter. Therefore, obviously our country is a republic. Just like many other countries, including Iran, Switzerland, France.. Confusingly, some monarchies are run like republics, with the monarch having limited or no actual powers. Our country is also a democracy because the head of state is chosen by an election. I have always understood that ours is a democratic republic. However, I believe it is actually a federal constitutional republic which is structured as a representative democracy. This means that majority rule is tempered by constitutional rights. And that rather than being a direct democracy where any representatives are limited or non existent or only acting as proxy, in fact, they are not required to act according to our wishes but have the authority to act in response to issues as they arise. The term democracy means popular government and a democracy by definition is a government where the people have the power through a free electoral system. So.... tomahto, tomayto..... Bottom line: Democratic Republic. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AwrEzee45pBcuSEAXF9XNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEyNWNiaW4yBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDQjI5NDRfMQRzZWMDc2M-?qid=20081016085203AApYjBs GO RV, then BV
  7. Trump Threatens ‘SNL’ With Federal Investigation Because They Mock Him Rosemary Rossi The WrapMarch 17, 2019 Donald Trump threatened “Saturday Night Live” and other late-night shows with a federal investigation for poking fun of him, calling it in a Sunday tweet, “one sided [sic] media coverage.” “It’s truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of ‘the other side.’ Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows,” the POTUS wrote. “Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this?” he added in a subsequent tweet. “There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia! Such one sided [sic] media coverage, most of it Fake News. Hard to believe I won and am winning. Approval Rating 52%, 93% with Republicans. Sorry! #MAGA” Also Read:Alec Baldwin's Latest 'SNL' Sketch Has Trump in Another Twitter Rant Gallup’s last Donald Trump’s Presidential Job Approval Ratings (for March 1-10, 2019) stood at 39 percent, while 57 percent disapprove. “SNL” ran a repeat Saturday of the Christmas 2018 episode in which the cold open — titled “It’s a Wonderful Trump” — had Trump get his wish that he had never become president, and the circle of people around him led happier lives as a result. The president was clearly fired up when that episode originally aired on Dec. 15, tweeting at the time, “It is nothing less than unfair news coverage and Dem commercials. Should be tested in courts, can’t be legal?” “Comedy programs are under exactly zero legal obligation to be even-handed in their satire, regardless of whether the butt of their jokes is a political figure,” Law&Crime columnist Elura Nanos wrote Sunday. “Similarly, news programs are legally permitted to be as one-sided as they like. As an agency of the federal government, the FCC must adhere to the limitations set out by the First Amendment — which means that censoring speech based on its political content is as illegal as it gets.” “Saturday Night Live” is a satire show that has mocked every president since Gerald Ford in 1976, along with a number of political figures. Trump hosted “SNL” in April 2004 and on Nov. 7, 2015. https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/trump-threatens-snl-federal-investigation-200859499.html It's obvious Donald is never going to read the U.S. Constitution on his own....so somebody in his universe needs to make him aware of what it says and the protections it provides.
