Now the headlines are Megyn (egotist) Kelly vs (Trump) the egotist in the marketing gimmicks for the next debate.

Trump should get paid $5 million for his performance from Fox.

Just like celebrity headlines about who is divorcing who, who is sleeping or cheating on who, who is feuding with who.  It is all bullshit to promote sales.

Now the debates have become commercialized crap.

This is just so despicable I don't know what to say.  As a victim of organized crime this is just another example of how people idolize cruel people.   I sincerely hope with all my heart and soul that something tragic befalls Sean Penn:

Well I would doubt he knowingly led the saw to this guy but that said I wish him thousands of sleepless nights worrying if his time has come:

Of course it is his fault and he did little to protect people who continue to own property in shore regions at their risk.

I don't want a single tax dollar given to these people.  "i've been down here for five years and have never seen it this bad" states one liberal who was interviewed.  What, is she a teacher.   No I don't feel sorry for her:

*****Chris Christie Apparently Missed All The Criticism Of His Response To Flooding
"I think you're just making it up," the New Jersey governor said.
 01/25/2016 10:30 am ET | Updated 36 minutes ago
Igor Bobic
Associate Politics Editor, The Huffington Post

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says he's unaware of criticism about his response to severe flooding in his state after Winter Storm Jonas.

"I don't even know what critics you're talking about," Christie said in response to a question from The Huffington Post's Sam Stein on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Monday. "There is no residual damage. There is no residual flooding damage. All the flooding receded yesterday morning."

"I have not heard any of that criticism, I have not seen any of that criticism, and I think you're just making it up," he added.

Prior to the storm, the New Jersey governor was in New Hampshire, an early primary state crucial to his presidential aspirations. On Saturday, the day after he returned to his state from the campaign trail, Christie held a press conference in which he downplayed the effects of the storm and said that New Jersey "dodged a bit of a bullet."

Indeed, central and northern sections of the state that were devastated by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 fared much better during Winter Storm Jonas. But some residents of southern New Jersey weren't so lucky.

"I was in my waders in three feet of water and my friend is saying Gov. Christie is on TV saying it's not that bad," Maggie Day, whose home and store were damaged as a result of flooding, told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Oh yeah? Gov. Christie should come down here and get in his fishing waders and live my life."

Another resident, Maui D'Antuono, suggested Christie was in a hurry to get back on the campaign trail.

"He couldn't claim a disaster because that would mean he'd have to stay here," D'Antuono said. "Once the insurance claims come in, that will really tell the tale of the damage. I know he's busy trying to be our vice president and all that, but the Shore really took a pounding."

After the storm, New Jersey shore towns were battered by flooding and surges of water up to 10 feet high. At one point, 94,000 power outages were reported. Residents of the island community of Stone Harbor feared the damage could be on par with the destruction from Superstorm Sandy.

Marissa Rigby, a resident of Wildwood, which was hit particularly hard by the storm, expressed shock at the governor's words.

"I don't know how he could possibly say that. I've been down here about five years and I've never seen it this bad," she told CBS.

On Monday, Christie's lieutenant governor, Kim Guadagno, and Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin will be visiting the areas hardest hit by flooding to assess the damage Christie says does not exist.****

Again this "news" site appears on Yahoo news out of no where to purportedly give the millennials the "facts" they "need to know".  Conclusion, the readers are supposed to come away with is (of course) that Benghazi investigation and its' offspring email investigation is all partisan without any basis in facts that Hillary is even involved.  I knew what the conclusions would be even before I read the article.  All I had to do was see MIC.  What a great scam.  Have rich leftists fund this group of kids to have them brainwash the millennial peers.  As an aside I wish they would get rid of these terms millennials generation x and Y baby boomers etc and just say babies from the 60's 70's 80s's or similar time frame.  It would be so much simpler then trying to figure out who they are even talking about:

I wonder if this is what Trump knew - that on illegal is going to ask a question.  If so he certainly is going to be "set up".  OTOH some would argue he should simply prepare his response to this and turn it into a home rum for those of us who know unlimited immigration beyond which we can absorb and illegal to boot is harming Americans.  You think minorities would not appreciate that point?  I know many would.  Plus Trump could point out this conflict of interest to the world on prime time on a network that is part of the "establishment" selling Americans down the river for cheap labor.  It is NOT a racial or ethnic or religious issue.  It is an issue of wanting to help Americans first than we see how to include others into our nation from where ever they come from.  What is so hard about that?  A person with a good mouthpiece and a good platform could do this.  I think this might embarrass Fox more than not showing up to debate.  And FWIW there is no doubt Kelly tried to put Trump out of the game the first Fox debate.  Her point was valid but her tone and insistence was over the top.   


*****Michelle, my Michelle on Breitbart about Murdoch and immigration, Fox:


Michelle Malkin: When Open-Borders Media Are in Charge of Debates, Voters Lose

@michellemalkin@michellemalkin/Twitter
by JULIA HAHN27 Jan 2016Washington D.C.245
Conservative commentator and best-selling author Michelle Malkin slammed Fox News on Twitter for the network’s decision to allow someone who entered the country illegally to participate as a questioner in tomorrow night’s Republican presidential debate.

Malkin tweeted: “FoxNews debate questioner Dulce Candy was an illegal immigrant. I’m sure her q will be fair.”

“When open-borders media are in charge of debates, voters lose,” Malkin later tweeted– explaining why the interests of American victims of open borders immigration policies go largely unrepresented at presidential debates.

As Malkin highlights in her new book Sold Out: How High-Tech Billionaires & Bipartisan Beltway Crapweasels Are Screwing America’s Best & Brightest Workers, Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch is the co-chair of one of the most powerful open borders immigration lobbying firms in the country, the Partnership for a New American Economy.

As Breitbart News has previously reported, this undisclosed conflict of interest may perhaps explain the treatment GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has received from the network.

Via his immigration lobbying firm, Murdoch has endorsed Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79%
’s 2013 amnesty bill, as well as Rubio’s 2015 immigration expansion bill know as the Immigration Innovation Act. Murdoch has also articulated his support for Rubio’s desire to give citizenship—and, by extension, voting rights and welfare access–to illegal immigrants.

Malkin points out that while someone who entered the country illegally will be represented in the Fox News debate, American citizens harmed by the nation’s open borders immigration policies are unlikely to be represented.

“Illegal alien & Muslim activist get key roles at FoxNewsGOP debate. Victims of illegal alien crime & jihad shut out,” Malkin tweeted.

"Her point was valid but her tone and insistence was over the top."


Her tone was typical for msm vs Republicans in debates, not the softball they wish to expect from allegedly conservative media.

A point from Rush, when they pay these guys $6 million a year (a gal in this case), they do not expect them to namelessly and facelessly read the news or ask a basic issue question.  They expect them to become part of the story.  Also RNC and DNC sells the debate rights to these media outlets for them to run at a profit.  It should be the party hosting and the networks picking it up because of public demand.  The Presidential race is public domain IMHO, not the exclusive right of a network.  To add the obvious, the format is really not a debate.

While conflicts of interest happens frequently in medical publications it is considered very unethical not to report upfront those conflict of interests and that those conflicts be published with the piece being published.  (Not that everyone does as they should, but just saying). 

IMO the following is VERY unethical to say the least.
If Luntz or Fox were totally ethical they would have reported this.
Fox has lost respect from the left day #1, but I do believe they have lost some respect from at least some righties including me these past 6 months.  I am not interested in their personalities such as Kelly.  I want the news.  I don't really like her.  She is aggressive which is good but that said it is way too much about HER:

Agree with you about Luntz if these facts are true, but Breitbart should also disclose their report was written by Trump.    wink

Anti-Trump Saudi Prince Tied to Both Rupert Murdoch And Hillary Aide


 
Jonathan Ernst/Getty Images/AFP
by Lee Stranahan - Breitbart News - 1 Feb 2016
Fox mogul Rupert Murdoch is partnered in multiple media ventures with Saudi Arabian Prince Alwaweed Bin Talal, including an Arabic religious TV network with a direct tie to Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin.
Both Prince Alwaweed Bin Talal and Murdoch’s Fox News network have become vocal critics of GOP Presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. On December 11, 2015 Bin Tala took to Twitter to savage Trump:


The Al-Resalah TV network is a venture created by Alwaleed in association with Rupert Murdoch. As The Guardian reported in 2010:


A company headed by the Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal says it plans to launch a new Arabic television news channel in partnership with Rupert Murdoch’s Fox network. The prince said the Kingdom Holding company’s 24-hour channel “will be an addition and alternative” for Arab viewers. It will compete with al-Arabiya and al-Jazeera.

Al-Resalah TV’s stated goal is to “present true Islam” but the network’s programming has been often been radical. As The Sun reported in 2006:

[M]uch of the content on his TV channel is overtly anti-Western. On March 31, the secretary-general of Al-Resalah, Sheik Tareq Al-Suweidan, gave a speech at Dialogue between Europe and Muslims, a convention in Copenhagen that the channel was covering. “The West have done strategic mistakes … they underestimate the power of Islam,” he said. Sheik Suweidan praised the election of Hamas and Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, warning: “The West have no chance but to deal with Islam, and we are extending our hands in peace and dialogue – you have slapped it. We do not accept insults.”

According to the official website of Prince Alaweed, one of the members of the Supreme Advisory board for his Al-Resalah TV network is “Dr. Abdullah Naseef, President of World Muslim Congress and President of Forum For Social Studies (FFSS).”


As Breitbart News has extensively documented, Al-Resalah TV  board member Dr. Naseef is the longtime benefactor of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s family business, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs.


As Vanity Fair reported:


When (Huma) Abedin was two years old, the family moved to Jidda, Saudi Arabia, where, with the backing of Abdullah Omar Nasseef, then the president of King Abdulaziz University, her father founded the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, a think tank, and became the first editor of its Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, which stated its mission as “shedding light” on minority Muslim communities around the world in the hope of “securing the legitimate rights of these communities.”

It turns out the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs is an Abedin family business. Huma was an assistant editor there between 1996 and 2008. Her brother, Hassan, 45, is a book-review editor at the Journal and was a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, where Nasseef is chairman of the board of trustees. Huma’s sister, Heba, 26, is an assistant editor at the Journal.

In his early years as the patron of the Abedins’ journal, Nasseef was the secretary-general of the Muslim World League, which Andrew McCarthy () claims “has long been the Muslim Brotherhood’s principal vehicle for the international propagation of Islamic supremacist ideology.”

The Muslim World League was the mother organization of two groups the U.S. government thinks was involved in funneling money to terrorists–the Rabita Trust and the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO). Both groups are listed on the Treasury department’s website of terrorist organizations. Naseef’s Rabita Trust co-founder Wa’el Hamza Julaidan was one of the founders of Al Qaeda.


These connections have been hidden by the mainstream media. Breitbart News demonstrated attempted to muddy the connection between Saudi Arabian raised Huma Abedin and Nassef when questions about Abedin were raised by a group of Congress members in 2012.


It’s been widely reported that Bin Talal is a large investor in Murdoch’s Fox News, but much less attention has been paid to Al-Resalah.


In early 2015, Bin Talal’s Kingdom Holding Company reduced his stake in Murdoch’s News Corp to 1 percent but maintains a 6.6 percent interest in 21st Century Fox, which controls Fox News. As CNN Money reported:

News Corp. is Murdoch’s publishing operation, made up of the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal as well as the book publisher HarperCollins. The more valuable 21st Century Fox is home to a host of television and film properties such as Fox Searchlight, the Fox broadcasting network and Fox News.

“We have a strategic alliance with Rupert Murdoch for sure and I have been with him for the last 15 or 20 years,” Alwaleed said. “My backing of Rupert Murdoch is definitely unwavering.”

The connection between Alwaleed, Murdoch, Abedin, Hillary Clinton and Saudi Arabia are troubling given a number of recent events.


Prince Alwaleed is boasting about his role in impacting U.S. elections. As Breitbart News Network’s Aaron Klein reported, the Saudi Arabian news site Sabq claims that “Alwaweed Bin Talal caused a decline in Trump’s popularity.”


 CNN reported in 2008 that “donations to the William J. Clinton Foundation include amounts of $10 million to $25 million from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.” Huma Abedin was hired as a consultant to the William J. Clinton Foundation after Clinton left her role as Secretary of State.


Abedin is also at the center of Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal.


Huma Abedin’s mother currently lives in Saudi Arabia and runs the Journal for Muslim Minority Affairs and is also a dean at a woman’s college there.

Hillary Emails: Fox News Shep Smith Sucks Up To Top Clinton Aide
By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN
Published on TheHillaryDaily.com on February 4, 2016
Lost among all of Hillary's "classified" and "top secret" emails is one interesting one from Fox News Anchor Shepherd Smith. It seems Smith got into an argument with Eric Goosby about which of them liked Cheryl Mills more, (Goosby was U.N. AIDS Coordinator at the time)

Mills, of course, was Hillary's Chief of Staff.

After this third grade incident, Smith decided to suck up to Mills and bring this heavy dispute to her attention.  Smith told her that he wore an "I Love Cheryl Mills" pin!

So cute! (GAG!!!)

Here's the email text:

From: Shepherd Smith [mailto:
Sent: Saturday, January 26, 2013 12:39 PM To: Mills, Cheryl D
Subject: Very short funny story

Dear Cheryl,

After what had to be a pretty trying week I thought you might enjoy this. My two other very favorite people at State are Eric Goosby and Zeenat Rahman. Well, last week I got in kind of an argument with one of them. Eric and I were debating who thought the most of you, he or I. He threw me a curve ball when he brought up how great your husband also is and probably thinks he won the day, but he would be incorrect. In thinking about it I don't believe I've ever heard anyone say anything negative about you (of course, my wearing the "I like Cheryl Mills" pin might inhibit some people from being too negative C). I've asked Shannon Smith to look out for Zeenat when her boss comes over. Have a great weekend and get a little rest.

Best wishes,
Shepherd

***So was it a suck up to the Hillary Clinton team? We report. You decide.***
