Has Meghan McCain already become a liability for Fox?

December 31, 2016

Regurgitating father’s odd, self-serving views doesn’t match conservative format

Just weeks ago to much fanfare and hoopla, Meghan McCain was named a permanent co-host of Fox network’s weekday news program “Outnumbered.” Tattoos hidden, nostrils sculpted, a couple of enhancements added and newly slimmed — Meghan is clearly not the brightest bulb in the all-fem chandelier — the format of which features a lone male guest. The day her father, then in a tough senate reelection race, showed up on the set as that guest, awkwardly epitomized bungled thinking.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my unique perspective with viewers on a now daily basis,” Meghan solemnly stated as she began her new job. Her “unique perspective“?  In this interview with People magazine after the Republican National Convention, Meghan McCain, 32, admitted she cried when the Republican Party made Trump its presidential nominee. “This is a garbage election with two garbage candidates and America deserves a lot better than this,” she said at the time. As a testament to her impeccable judgment, Megan registered as an Independent when she was 18 and bragged that she voted for John Kerry in the 2004 presidential election.

Ms. McCain’s Republican credentials have always been suspect. She became a Republican as a Father’s Day surprise, in a display of “commitment” to her Dad. It’s worth noting that at the time, he was the GOP nominee for the U.S. Presidency.

As John McCain, who withdrew his lukewarm support from GOP candidate — now President-elect Donald Trump — showboats, things have gotten even dicier.  McCain and his omnipresent traveling buddy and senate colluder Lindsey Graham have announced they will hold hearings on what they regard as Russia’s interference with our presidential elections. The aim is to cast doubt on Trump, delegitimizing the breadth of his popularity and neutralizing him on the world stage before he assumes office. Even the hard-left Rolling Stone writes the Russian hack story of the Democrat National Committee emails “stinks.

And Meghan?  Unable to continually spew her daddy’s talking points, she has been absent from the “Outnumbered” set for several days. She’s too new at the job to be given holiday vacation time that long timers have earned. It would be a wise corporate move to say she’s unable to continue her gig due to other pressing considerations.

 


Charade is over: Obama no longer needs Jewish votes

December 26, 2016

Obama disses Israel with United Nations abstention vote

An angry Barack Obama has taken the gloves off. Having lost his third term with Hillary Clinton’s thunderous fail and incensed that Donald Trump not only won the presidency, but Republicans have secured majorities in both the U.S. House and Senate by commanding margins —  a clear repudiation of Obama and his policies. What better time for Obama to once again give a knuckle sandwich to Israel?

Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee criticized the Obama administration (video) for the United States’ abstention Friday during a United Nations vote condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank, according to Fox News Insider.

“This is about evil and good,” Huckabee, a Baptist minister for a dozen years said, “I am just beyond in a seething rage over what this administration has done in its last days… have some just common decency.”

Huckabee called US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power’s abstention during an otherwise unanimous vote condemning Israel “cowardly” and said that her silence was effectively an agreement with the motion. “It basically says to Israel, ‘you don’t deserve to be a nation that has secure borders’,” Huckabee said.

Huckabee said the term ‘settlements’, used by the UN, is a misnomer, as the Israelis are building neighborhoods in land “given to them by the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob” four thousand years ago, as he called the “two-state solution” plan feckless and dangerous, concluding the United Nations has become a “laughingstock.”

Samantha Power, a left-wing native of Ireland, who has advocated for the United States to invade Israel and said that American Jews were too rich and powerful,* was appointed U.S. ambassador to the United Nations by Barack Obama in 2013.  Such outlandish opinions didn’t dissuade Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake who voted in support of her confirmation. John McCain was one of only three of the 100 U.S. Senators who did not vote.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio‘s bombshell final press conference 4:00 pm today & UPDATE

December 15, 2016

Culmination of Maricopa County Cold Case Posse’s Investigation into Obama’s fraudulent documents

WND’s Bob Unruh reports that Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is not leaving office with unfinished business.  An Army veteran, Arpaio is a dedicated career lawman who began working as a Washington D.C., and Las Vegas, NV police officer. His federal credentials are anything but mundane. As a narcotics agent, he established an impressive record infiltrating drug organizations from Turkey to the Middle East to Mexico, Central, and South America and cities throughout the U.S. His expertise and successes led him to top management positions around the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. He concluded his extraordinary federal career as head of the DEA for Arizona before being elected to an unprecedented 6-four year terms as sheriff.

With this professional résumé and documents to substantiate his allegations, he is holding news conference today to release 3 years of analysis of matters relating to the veracity of documents previously released by Barack Obama.

The passage of time doesn’t lessen the gravity of the charges regarding Obama’s origins. Merely looking into such allegations has been responsible for the creation of a new disparaging word from the left  — Birther — for those who dare question the legitimacy of his clams. “Conspiracy theorist” is anther censure hurled with impunity. Former Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie sealed the records when requests first began gaining momentum. He was later ousted by the voters in a stunning upset, despite Barack Obama campaigning for him.

In the WND report complete with the questionable documents, Unruh writes, “Some immediately pointed out alleged anomalies, questioning its (Obama’s birth certificate) validity, while others argued it also could prove his ineligibility because his father was not a citizen. Some of the lawsuits argued Obama was a dual citizen at birth through his father, contending the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born citizens.”

The unresolved question based in the facts of the investigation conducted by Chief Investigator Mike Zullo, is whether Barack Hussein Obama was eligible to spend a day in the White House — let alone eight years. Sheriff Arpaio and Commander Mike Zullo will make their presentation at the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Training Center.  Watch the Live Stream which will initially be posted on the MCSO Facebook page this afternoon —-Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. Arizona Time ./ 6:00 p.m. ET.

Following the press conference, WND’s Bob Unruh writes: Sheriff’s probe finds Obama birth certificate not authentic. Read his full report here.


What’s Fox News’ fascination with John & Meghan McCain?

December 14, 2016

How conveniently timed. In less than a week following the Nov. 8, 2016 General Election in which her octogenarian father was reelected to another 6-year senate term, Meghan McCain was named a permanent co-host of “Outnumbered” a Fox News weekday morning show. The theme is to showcase a rotating panel of leggy female commentators, including co-host Harris Faulkner and Sandra Smith — along with one male panelist.  The topic is, of course, politics.

In an example of Fox News’ supposedly “fair and balanced” coverage, while Meghan was just an occasional panelist and in the midst of John McCain’s senate campaign, he was the “outnumbered” male seated alongside Meghan.

But his hypocrisy was on display in this interview (30-second video clip) with Fox News host Neil Cavuto, as ingrate John McCain sarcastically bites the hand that fed him as he compares the network to Vietnam radio propagandist “Hanoi Hannah.”

Like her father, coarse and salty-tongued, the newly glammed Meghan McCain, 32, is an outspoken opponent of Donald Trump. Unlike dear old dad, she wasn’t thrilled with Hillary, either, saying she voted for Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin. A deep thinker, she authored a whiney “memoir” in 2010 titled, “Dirty Sexy Politics.”

On Tuesday, with the topic of discussion President-elect Donald Trump’s secretary of state pick, “Can Rex Tillerson ease critics’ concerns? Meghan vacillated between sounding as though daddy was whispering negative talking points in her ear piece to getting testy with David Webb, the male guest.

As we noted in “The like totally inane Ms. McCain,” Fox News’ GOP go-to woman only registered as a Republican in 2008 as a surprise Father’s Day gift during what became John McCain’s failed race for President of the United States.


Obama claims his intelligence let him down on rise of ISIS

December 9, 2016

Attempting to shift blame, Obama refuses to accept responsibility for increased terrorism on his watch — or even say the words “radical Islamic terrorism”

On his way out the door Barack Obama, in this CNN interview, claims the ability of ISIS (which he steadfastly refers to as ISIL) to spread took him by surprise. It was not on my “intelligence radar screen.”

Clearly this video shows that not to be the case. Obama’s own intelligence officials were telling Congress of their terror concerns. The date each of them testified follows their name and position.

James Clapper, Director of National Security – Jan. 29, 2014

John Brennan, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency – Feb. 4, 2014

Brett McGurk, State Department Presidential Envoy for ISIL Coalition – Feb. 5, 2014

Lt. General (Ret.) Michael Flynn, former Defense Intelligence Agency Director – Feb. 11, 2014

Each knowledgeable official, testifying before Congress, tells a decidedly different story from the one attempting to be sold by President Barack Hussein Obama.

Exhibiting his deep disconnect, Obama previously compared groups linked to al-Qaeda as “JV Team“ (Junior Varsity). Brief video under link.

The latest mantra sung by the Democrats is “fake news.”  This Obama tweet is evidence of his disconnect with reality as he peddles his own fakery, while disregarding the multitude of terrorist acts perpetrated on our soil.


Making the case that the media skew the news

December 6, 2016

The Daily Regurgitation — yes, the state’s largest newspaper really does shamelessly re-spew its own reports — sometimes a day or two apart and often in different sections of the same edition. The frequency of the repetition quickly took the actions outside of the error category.

Open borders/amnesty plodder Linda Valdez, never one to obscure her far left views, writes columns titled, “How liberals move forward under Trump.” or “The Mexico you need to know.” But she outdoes herself with this rollicking piece titled, “Why Trump’s attack on media hurts you more than me.” She cites  the growing proliferation of “fake news” as being “truly corrosive to liberty,” even managing to stir Thomas Jefferson into the mix. As one who routinely engages in skew, her protests ring hollow.

Valdez quotes President-elect Donald Trump telling an audience that “professional journalists are very dishonest people.”

Even the reliably liberal Washington Post headlines with this admission: “Just 7 percent of journalists are Republicans. That’s far fewer than even a decade ago.”

Chris Cillizza reports: A majority of American journalists identify themselves as political Independents although among those who choose a side Democrats outnumber Republicans four to one.” He cites a study of the media conducted by two Indiana University professors.

It would be beyond rational to believe a reporter’s personal political alignment doesn’t seep into his or her political news coverage. Readers of the Arizona Republic  know better. That’s why there are fewer and fewer of them.

Valdez doth protest too much.
