  1. Walsh keep being honest about what’s most obvious

  2. “If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed … and we will deserve it”

    -Lindsey Graham



    • @D Man … in Europe, the current Republican policies would undoubtedly be far right, (if not even extreme right) and the Democrats Center-left.

    There should be an article in the impeachment for his previous threats to the whistleblower and other witnesses. It was disgusting.
    It’s not ok.

      @ruth depew Same difference.

Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.

      A new study from the widely respected

      (the official arbiter of U.S. recessions)

      released this week has confirmed beyond question that the left’s race-baiting attacks on the housing market (the Community Reinvestment Act–enacted under CARTER, made shockingly more aggressive under CLINTON) is directly responsible for imploding the housing market and destroying the economy.

      The study painstakingly sorted through failed home loans that caused the housing market collapse and identified an overwhelming connection between them and CRA mortgages.

      Again, let’s review:

      – President BUSH went to Congress repeatedly for years warning them that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were going to destroy the economy (17 times in 2008 alone). DEMOCRATS continuously ignored him, shut down his proposals along party lines and continued raiding the institutions for campaign contributions on their way down.

      – JOHN McCAIN also co-sponsored urgently critical reforms that would have prevented the housing market collapse, but DEMOCRATS shut that down as well, along party lines, and even openly ridiculed anyone who suggested reforms were necessary…to protect their taxpayer-funded campaign contributions as the economy raced uncontrollably toward the cliff.

      – No one was making bad loans to unqualified people until DEMOCRATS came along and threatened to drag banks into court and have them fined and branded as racists if they didn’t go along with the left’s Affirmative Action lending policies…all while federally insuring their losses. Even the NEW YORK TIMES warned in the late 1990s that DEMOCRATS continuing to force banks into lowering their standards would lead to this exact catastrophe.

      – OBAMA himself is even on the record personally helping sue one lender (Citibank) into lowering its lending standards to include people from extremely poor and unstable areas, which even one of the left’s favorite blatantly partisan “fact-checkers,” Snopes, admits (while pretending to ‘set the record straight’).

      – Even The NEW YORK TIMES admitted that there is “little evidence” of any connection between the “REPUBLICAN” deregulation measures OBAMA blames, like the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (signed into law by a DEMOCRAT), and the collapse of the housing market.

      But non-Fox media have spent years deliberately and relentlessly inoculating people against the facts, training them to mindlessly blame BUSH for being in charge when DEMOCRAT policies destroyed the economy. So here we sit, to this day, still watching OBAMA excuse and shrug off endless economic failures, illegal government takeovers and utter national bankruptcy with zero accountability.

    • @Margaret Nicol That’s his job.Finding and fighting Corruption Incorporated.Get off Trump’s nads for the rest of the year.Hate is not healthy.Let me guess,you take several medications.Not me.Life is good,no worries unless you are a Democrackhead.They are fixing to go down.Down to the ground.They goin to the joint man.You can visit Schiff for brains and Antsie Pillosi in the slammer.

      @Gary Rosie You really just don’t get it, do you? What he did (and would do again, e.g. China) was illegal. It was against the constitution that he swore to protect. Simple really.
      I’m glad life is good for you but when that changes I hope you won’t regret voting for Trump.

    It’s not just Fox News, anyone who supports him has no logical talking points and are forced to change the subject or respond with unrelated comments.

      That’s called being brainwashed, and it’s Fox viewers that are implied

      @D Man I’ll have a logical debate, but the key word is “logical” and that doesn’t exist for people who don’t think, but are brainwashed. Talking to someone like that is pointless

    • @Disenfranchised American Like trying to convince a zombie not to eat your brain lol. Although you could make a great case, they will still insist on trying to eat your brain.

    • Says the brainwashed libturd.

    • I support President Trump ! bush-cheneny / obummer-gropper 16 years of a bullshit wars ,recessions and 1.2 GDP Growth !!!

    No one remembers that fox is owned by a foreign national.

    • Big Daddy Baleion Mate, Rupert Murdoch is now an AMERICAN CITIZEN. He is not an Australian citizen any more and WE DON’T WANT HIM. You Yanks are welcome to that person!!!!!! Cheers from Australia

      @Peter from GW I thought the right wing media was saying that if your foreign born your allegiance is always questioned. Vindman is an american citizen. Yet his loyalty is being called into question. Shouldn’t the owner of the worlds largest propaganda producer be subject to the same scrutiny?

    • No it is owned by a group of Russian Bots…..LOL

    • @Dolores Reynolds Your assertion is incorrect.

  10. “Where’s the Whistleblower?” A top aide to Rep. Devin Nunes has been providing conservative politicians and journalists with information—and misinformation—
    that Devin is Whistleblower.

  11. It’s why Shepard Smith had to quit Fox because he actually voiced concern against trumps bs narrative.

      @Kathleen Austin Too be fair, CNN and MSNBC get ahead of themselves, sometimes….other sorces are better….

    • Inez Dills Fox? You mean the news outlet that actually got the “Russian collusion” hoax right from the start? You probably believed CNN/MSNBC for TWO years huh? I bet you felt foolish. This is just propaganda. Notice how this “journalist” TELLS you what is false and what is true? The media tries to tell us what to believe. It’s propaganda.

    • he wants to go to cnn so he can play with lemon in the green room!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He was a joke on his show , as all cnn shows are , A JOKE!!! these shows distort the truth 10-fold!!! MAGA 2029

    • Patchwork Girl That’s funny coming from someone that watches CNN/MSNBC (Ministry of Propaganda) Did you seriously believe “Russian collusion” for TWO years??? That should clue you in, but here you are, drinking up more propaganda.

    Trump’s tweet sounds like he’s threatening the well-being of the whistleblower!

  14. That’s exactly what CNN & MSNBC do when someone talks about Bernie Sanders in a positive light.

  15. we still have a rescission coming, and that will put the final nail in his presidency!!!!

    • Oh you can see the future? Do you have any winning lottery numbers? I’ve been looking at a villa in Dubrovnik and your uncanny ability to know what tomorrow brings could really be of assistance.

    • D Man You don’t need to be able to see the future when you follow stocks/shares, banks and the federal reserve. You just need common sense and the ability to know how interest rates affect the economy. What Trump tells you and what the reality is are two entirely different things. Problem is common sense isn’t that common and Trump supporters don’t bother to look at facts and figures, they simply regurgitate Trump rhetoric. There’s a reason why Trump loves the poorly educated.

    • @Kyomii Thank you for the response. Truth be told I am from Canada and as an outsider looking in I see endless propaganda from the mainstream media that is almost exclusively on the left. From the time Trump was elected, starting with recounts in Florida to the current impeachment foolishness, the media has been telling Americans that Trump will be out of office. The Russia lies, sexual assault lies, tax fraud lies, and more and more lies! With every one of these pretend stories the left is positive he is on the way out and every time it leads to disappointment because it’s all fairytales. I should also admit that I’m not an economist however I do lean to statistics and history to make opinions. Given the number of flops the media has made about Trump that have all turned into fiction at worst and hyperbole at best I do not believe Trump will lose his presidency any time soon. But maybe the Harvard business graduate that made the original post will let me realize my ignorance. Only time will tell I suppose.

    • D Man All that you state are lies is truth. I suggest you read the Muller report – no, it does not exonerate Trump. I suggest you look at the statement of the sexual molestation of the 13 year old by Trump and Epstein, a case that was being brought to court but Epstein is now dead though, funny that. When you say Russia is not true can you tell me why trump has Russian money? Can you tell me why Trump offered to help Putin with his forest fires in July but now California needs help with their forest fires, Trump’s says nope, not getting anything – he has clearly put Putin before America. Can you tell me what kind of President calls his people “human scum?” Can you tell me why there’s thousand’s of lies stated by Trump, each and every lie has been fact checked? Here’s just some I think you watch too much Fox news, a channel that has had to put a “for entertainment purposes only“ disclaimer to avoid legal liabilities because of it’s lies. Let that sink in. Finally, show me proof that everything you have stated is a lie by “the left.” I’ll wait.

    • @ruth depew So no facts or quotes? Just what you think? Problem is most dont fall down and worship him. We go to work, look at our paychecks and go about living not worrying everyday what the damn President does or says.

    • @T Tullock Ah so you’re an admitted dilettante paying no attention to your corrupt and criminal president.

    • That’s a joke …..
      You know you can’t win that’s the only reason you want to impeach and it will go nowhere ….look at all you crap candidates …

    • @ruth depew I just know that every president since the beginning of time has been corrupt or criminal in some form or fashion. I choose, again, to live my life and not worry about birth certificates, Russia, Putin, tax returns and such. Trump was like this before. No one thought he was the best behaved guy. Your side just put up the most unlikable candidate in history in my opinion.

    • @Kevin Mcneil The corrupt and criminal Trump just initiated another criminal conspiracy this morning by demanding the unmasking of the whistleblower.
