Tucker Carlson announces Megyn Kelly’s return as guest; Fox News quells the rumors

by Victor Rantala{bizpacreview.com } ~ Tucker Carlson announced that former Fox News and NBC news anchor Megyn Kelly will appear on his program Wednesday for her first TV interview since being fired at NBC one year ago…  Kelly’s sudden departure from NBC resulted from comments she made on the “Today” show in which she questioned and defended dressing in blackface for a Halloween costume. She said it was “okay when I was a kid” and did not understand how dressing in blackface could now be considered racist. A social media firestorm ensued and NBC quickly parted ways with the conservative news personality. Carlson and Mark Steyn were talking about CNN and network president Jeff Zucker Monday evening before the announcement of Kelly’s one-night return to the network that made her famous. “Of course Jeff Zucker wasn’t always at CNN, he was at another channel for many years. He ran NBC for a decade. Before that, he was the youngest executive producer at the ‘Today’ show. Things have not changed much at NBC since Zucker left. We repeatedly told you the network tried to cover up the Harvey Weinstein story. They sent the Access Hollywood tape over to the Washington Post and they are still lying about it.” “Well, this Wednesday night, two nights from now, someone who knows an awful lot about NBC is making her first TV appearance since parting ways with that channel nearly a year ago. Megyn Kelly will join us as a guest on this program for her first interview. She’s got a lot to say. I hope you will watch.” It will be Kelly’s first return to Fox News since she left more than two years ago in early 2017, after some public clashes with colleagues Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly. She also wrote a book about her experiences with former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, called “Settle for More.” Her star began to fade among the network’s conservative viewership the year before, following a volatile series of exchanges involving presidential candidate Donald Trump… https://www.bizpacreview.com/2019/10/15/tucker-carlson-announces-megyn-kellys-return-as-guest-fox-news-stems-off-rumors-839458?utm_campaign=bizpac&utm_content=Newsletter&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_source=Get+Response&utm_term=EMAIL

US moves toward a rapid, complete withdrawal of its military forces from Syria

by ROBERT BURNS{timesofisrael.com } ~ The United States appears to be heading toward a full military withdrawal from Syria amid growing chaos, cries of betrayal and signs that Turkey’s invasion could fuel a broader war… Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Sunday that President Donald Trump had directed US troops in northern Syria to begin pulling out “as safely and quickly as possible.” He did not say Trump ordered troops to leave Syria, but that seemed like the next step in a combat zone growing more unstable by the hour. A US official familiar with the situation on the ground told CNN earlier Sunday that US forces in Syria are preparing to withdraw from the country. Esper, interviewed on two TV news shows, said the administration was considering its options. “We have American forces likely caught between two opposing advancing armies and it’s a very untenable situation,” Esper said. This seemed likely to herald the end of a five-year effort to partner with Syrian Kurdish and Arab fighters to ensure a lasting defeat of the Islamic State group. Hundreds of IS supporters escaped a holding camp amid clashes between invading Turkish-led forces and Kurdish fighters on Monday, and analysts said an IS resurgence seemed more likely, just months after Trump declared the extremists defeated…https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-moves-toward-a-rapid-complete-withdrawal-of-its-military-forces-from-syria/?utm_source=The+Daily+Edition&utm_campaign=daily-edition-2019-10-14&utm_medium=email  

Sebastian Gorka Urges ‘Backbone’ to Resist Socialism

by Jackson Elliott{dailysignal.com } ~ If former presidential aide Sebastian Gorka could save only one possession from his house, he would save the crucifix his father carved from a toothbrush while imprisoned under socialism in Hungary… With powerful stories like this about his family’s escape from socialist Hungary and his father’s sufferings in a Soviet prison, the former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump on Friday urged the crowd at the Values Voter Summit to speak out for freedom. Gorka, now an author and talk radio host, told his audience in Washington that the day he understood evil under socialism changed his life forever. When he was 8 years old playing on the beach with his family, Gorka recalled, he noticed two thin lines on his father’s wrists. When he asked what the lines were, his father told him: “Well, son, that’s where the secret police bound my hands with wire behind my back so they could lift me to the ceiling of the torture chamber.” “My life changed in the span of one sentence,” he said. His father’s scars and the crucified Savior who sustained him through prison convinced him of the reality of good and evil, Gorka said. The widespread approval of socialism among young Americans makes support for conservative values extremely important now, he said. According to the human rights group Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, for example, 52% of millennials wish to live in a socialist or communist America. “We have one political grouping in our country that has come out of the closet as socialist,” Gorka said. “We cannot let them win.”…  https://www.dailysignal.com/2019/10/11/sebastian-gorka-urges-backbone-to-resist-socialism/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=sebastian-gorka-urges-backbone-to-resist-socialism&mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiWXpNMU56WmlNV1l3TUdRMyIsInQiOiJTQktzakJoYWJkR1VhNTd3SkI0Ulh1b1lhSWQ5M1JWU2FGZG1LdURUS3E4M0ZhXC9hZlNkdVNHeGRGQkx5SjQzVGdSZWdWeVpjbW84NzMzQklPU0pXV3JsZUo4MG8zOE92NWROSWxOeTRJUEhaUGRsZVh5Q1VYK3piSHdkd21ZbXMifQ%3D%3D  

GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz ejected from secret impeachment meeting

by Susan Ferrechio{washingtonexaminer.com } ~ A Republican member of the House Judiciary Committee was ejected from a closed-door impeachment hearing… Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida on Monday tried to enter a hearing in which lawmakers from three different committees are interviewing President Trump’s former top aide on Russia, Fiona Hill. Gaetz said he believed he should be allowed to attend the hearing because impeachment inquiries traditionally are handled by the House Judiciary Committee and he serves on that panel. But the House parliamentarian told Gaetz he is not allowed to attend the hearing because he does not sit on either the Intelligence, Foreign Affairs, or Oversight panels, which are the official committees conducting the impeachment inquiry. “Judiciary Committee Chairman scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler claimed to have begun the impeachment inquiry weeks ago,” Gaetz said on Twitter after leaving the hearing room. “Now, his own Judiciary members aren’t even allowed to participate in it. And yes – my constituents want me actively involved in stopping the #KangarooCourtCoup run by Shifty scumbag-Schiff. “Republicans and Trump have criticized the impeachment inquiry for failing to follow precedent, which includes a House vote, referral to the Judiciary Committee, and bipartisan agreement on rules for the inquiry. Gaetz has called for an end to the impeachment inquiry.  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/congress/gop-rep-matt-gaetz-ejected-from-secret-impeachment-meeting?utm_source=breaking_push&utm_medium=app&utm_campaign=push_notifications&utm_source=WEX_Breaking%20News%20Alert_10/14/2019&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WEX_Breaking%20News&rid=5261  .\

Former Associate Of scumbag-James Clapper Assisted In Whistleblower Complaint

by oann.com ~ New details are painting a clearer picture of the controversial whistleblower and their perceived motive. A Friday report revealed that an associate of the former Director of National Intelligence, scumbag-James Clapper… helped the whistleblower with their complaint.  Charles McCullough is the attorney who assisted Andrew Bakaj at the beginning of the process. He was previously the inspector general of the Intelligence Community during the scumbag/liar-Clinton email scandal. Critics of the complaint say it makes sense why his former employer has been praising the complaint. After leaving the government in 2017, scumbag-James Clapper became a national security analyst for CNN. He is allegedly responsible for perpetuating fake news surrounding foreign involvement in the 2016 Election. Before that, he lied to Congress about government surveillance, claiming that the U.S. did “not wittingly” collect data on millions of Americans. McCullough now works at Compass Rose Legal Group and is no longer involved in representing the whistleblower. Bakaj, the former staffer for Senators Chuck scumbag-Schumer and scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton, remains on-board.  https://www.oann.com/former-associate-of-james-clapper-assisted-in-whistleblower-complaint/?fbclid=IwAR08XtWV1T41Nw39bwLyNsURNFSATKKOBZOVrP5mnD2mBAvRamlEiyU4P2g   

Cali Police Robot Ignores Woman’s Calls for Help, Tells Her To Get Out of Its Way

By Jared Harris{westernjournal.com } ~ Leave it to California to introduce a policing “innovation” that makes Barney Fife look like Judge Dredd. When the Huntington Park Police Force rolled out “HP Robocop” in June of this year… it was heralded as a major step for public safety for its supposed ability to keep an extra pair of eyes on patrol without taking an officer off assignment. “This is a big accomplishment for our city and introducing HP RoboCop shows innovation and the incorporation of new technology,” Mayor Karina Macias said at the robot’s introduction. “I am certainly impressed with HP RoboCop and can’t wait to see the public safety benefits it will bring to our community.” RoboCop recently got its first test in the realities of policing, and the machine definitely didn’t live up to its imposing name. According to NBC News, when a fight broke out in Salt Lake Park, a bystander rushed to RoboCop and pushed the robot’s call button. Nothing happened. “I was pushing the button but it said, ‘step out of the way,’” Cogo Guebara said. “It just kept ringing and ringing, and I kept pushing and pushing.” The woman figured it needed to scan a face, possibly a deterrent to prank alerts, and positioned herself in front of the robot’s camera to no effect. A woman with Guebara then used a cell phone to call 911, and first responders arrived 15 minutes later. By then, the fight had already ended and one woman was bleeding from a wound on her head. Despite the chaos, RoboCop continued to follow its pre-determined route. Video shows that the robot plays cheesy sci-fi music as it moves at a snail’s pace around the park…  https://www.westernjournal.com/cali-police-robot-ignores-womans-calls-help-tells-get-way/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=patriotupdate&utm_campaign=dailypm&utm_content=libertyalliance

The Whistleblower and the ‘scumbag-Schiff/loose lips iar-Biden Dossier’

By Daniel John Sobieski{americanthinker.com } ~ In a striking parallel to the Trump-Russia “collusion delusion” fueled by the manufactured Steele dossier, we now have what I will dub the “scumbag-Schiff/loose lips liar-Biden dossier,” a manufactured tale of Trump corruption involving a tangled web of Deep-State swamp rats… seeking to deflect attention from the real collusion and the real corruption. The Russian collusion fantasy was designed to frame Trump while diverting attention from scumbag/liar-Hilary Clinton’s real collusion with Russia in Uranium One and using the scumbag/liar-Clinton Foundation as  a pay-for- play cash cow as secretary of state. With the revelations by the Washington Examiner that the whistleblower worked for former vice president loose lips liar-Joe Biden and that two of scumbag-Adam Schiff’s aides worked with the whistleblower, we can see scumbag-Schiff’s fable of a phone call between Trump and Ukraine’s President Zelensky, even the whistleblower’s initial complaint, to be a fraud manufactured by scumbag-Schiff and loose lips liar-Biden, to get Trump while diverting attention from the loose lips liar-Biden family corruption from Ukraine to China. As the Washington Examiner reports: House Intelligence Committee Chairman scumbag-Adam Schiff recruited two former National Security Council aides who worked alongside the CIA whistleblower at the NSC during the scumbag/liar-nObama and Trump administrations, the Washington Examiner has learned. Abigail Grace, who worked at the NSC until 2018, was hired in February, while Sean Misko, an NSC aide until 2017, joined scumbag-Schiff’s committee staff in August, the same month the whistleblower submitted his complaint. The whistleblower was an NSC official who worked with former Vice President loose lips liar-Joe Biden and who has expertise in Ukraine, the Washington Examiner has reported.  This mirrors the Russian collusion anti-Trump plot where members, indeed leaders, of the Intelligence Community such as scumbag/commie-John Brennan and scumbag-James Clapper worked hand in hand with scumbag/liar-nObama’s DOJ, scumbag/liar-nObama’s FBI, and even Sen. majority leader Harry dink-Reid to keep scumbag/liar-Hillary out of jail and Trump out of the White House. Interestingly enough, Misko has a long and strong working relationship with scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton, the Washington Examiner reports: Misko, 37, worked in the scumbag/liar-nObama administration as a member of the secretary of state’s policy planning staff under deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, who became scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton’s top foreign policy official during her 2016 presidential campaign. … Misko’s name surfaced in the scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton email controversy when he worked in the State Department during the scumbag/liar-nObama administration. In a Dec. 1, 2009, email released by Judicial Watch, scumbag/liar-Clinton adviser Huma Abedin sent classified information regarding foreign military contributions to the Afghanistan war effort to her private email account. That email originated with Misko, who wrote to Sullivan that he initially “accidentally” sent it on the “high side” secure but was sending the email again…  https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/10/the_whistleblower_and_the_schiffbiden_dossier.html 

.Leftists Still Attacking Columbus Day

Robin Smith:  In another episode of “As the Offended, Politically Correct World Turns,” we’re greeted with a calendar conflict that’s emblematic of a segment of our population that has abandoned reason and the ability to strive, survive, and succeed in reality. Today, according to some, is Indigenous Peoples’ Day, not the commemorative date to celebrate the historical figure who ventured to a new land and found America, Christopher Columbus, or Cristoforo Columbo.

On your “smart” device, your calendar might read, “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” or even “Columbus Day (regional holiday).” Originally, the special day aimed to recognize the landing in the Americas of the Italian-born explorer who approached Spanish King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella after rejection from the royalty of England, Portugal, and France, thinking a westward exploration would result in reaching the Indies and Asia. But, in recent years, those who have proven they can’t learn from history, much less honor it, are busy rewriting it in efforts to prove themselves and their anti-American narrative correct and have encouraged the toppling of statues of Christopher Columbus and ignoring the times, the context, and the truth in their efforts.If you’re celebrating Columbus Day, you’re honoring a man who came from a simple raising in the home of a wool weaver in the seaport, Genoa, Italy. Cristoforo Columbo had no formal education or schooling. He was self-taught. His Italian heritage and his Catholic faith drove his passion along with much of his devotion to exploration.The mapmaker and sailor lived in a day when the Turkish Empire controlled northern Africa and blocked the fastest trade routes to the Orient, or India and China. Most educated folks, and those who referenced Holy Scripture (see Isaiah 40:22 among other verses), believed the Earth to be round, but the disagreement was on the size of the planet. Columbus believed some of the earliest calculations were too large and argued that the westward route would lead to their trading partners without the hassle and fight of the Muslim enemies.So, in September 1492, Columbus set sail. His journey was fraught with problems, but he landed, despite near mutiny of crews aboard the vessels in his charge, on Oct. 12, 1492, on modern-day San Salvador. Believing he had arrived at his intended destination of the Indies the natives of the island were deemed “Indians.” His travels continued through the Caribbean with several subsequent journeys to and from Spain to this land he believed to be Asia.Now, here’s where the revision of history is greatest. Academia and those devoted to a narrative of oppression have declared that Columbus introduced slavery and was a murderous tyrant. He is depicted by those desiring to lift the alleged victims, the “Indians” or Indigenous Peoples, to the place of commemoration, not the inspired explorer.Columbus is painted as greedy — typical for a guy of white privilege. He also believed in God and His Son Jesus Christ … uh oh. You see, the crew cried, “Blessed be the hour of our Savior’s birth, blessed be the Virgin Mary who bore him and blessed be John the Baptist who baptized him” as they turned the half-hour glass, along with other observances of the Christian faith. He named one of his ships the Santa Maria — Holy Mary. He even dared (get ready for the head explosions of the godless groupies) to set up the standard of the Cross when he first touched land and named it, San Salvador — Holy Savior.But Columbus sought gold not for personal wealth but for the purpose of evangelism and to, in his own words penned in his journal, liberate Jerusalem from the Muslim captivity: “Thus, I protest to your Highness that all the profits of this my enterprise may be sent in conquest of Jerusalem.”And, about that slavery of the Indians, you see, Columbus wrote that there were individuals in his crew who “did not deserve water in the sight of God” for selling native girls into slavery. He can’t stand blameless for the cultural acceptance of slavery at the time, but it was also practiced among the natives, as was cannibalism.Among the Carib tribes, indigenous to the lands that Columbus first touched, not only was slavery practiced, but also mutilation and forced reproduction of children for the purpose of cannibalism.But that doesn’t fit the narrative that, in the pre-Columbian world slavery, exploitation, evil nor any other type of oppression ever existed. Only once a white male motivated by wealth and raw power was able to establish dominance over a minority people was America born — hence everything about these United States is morally wrong and must be destroyed as part of the restitution to victims that span the line of time.Currently, there are over 100 cities that have banned the observance of Columbus Day to now herald the Indigenous Peoples instead. Washington, DC, is the latest to join these municipal malcontents through its passage of “emergency legislation.” But shhhhhh, don’t tell — the District of Columbia, a territory that holds the seat of the government of our United States, is the feminine form of Columbus. The original 13 colonies were even referred to as Columbia.Let’s let “progressive” leftists continue in their embarrassment of honoring Elizabeth dinky/liar-Warren as a Cherokee with high cheekbones dishing out her Pow Wow Chow while trying to take over the District of Columbia, which was named for Columbus, while making a mockery of everything great about America — her freedoms, our faith, and our families. While they’re busy rewriting history, let’s ensure that we write our future by defending America’s greatness and the truth.
