“We know that there was this. There was electronic surveillance on Trump and the people close to Donald Trump, including some supporters, for up to a year before inauguration. That information was disseminated we’re told through NSA channels. It’s unprecedented, I’m told, the way this was done. The mention of US citizens is supposed to be masked, whether, that means taken out of a report. So, for example, I call somebody in Bulgaria and that’s picked up some how by our agencies and there’s nothing there causing national security, there’s nothing there causing a crime, that report would come out and say American #1 or my name would not be there. What I’m told now is that when these reports came out names were there and that is unprecedented.”
It was most likely unprecedented because it wasn’t national security surveillance but rather, the widespread use of national intelligence agencies then weaponized to be used against political opponents. Richard Nixon was threatened with impeachment for merely considering such a thing.
The Obama government actually did it. It is why the Mainstream Media is working so hard to attack one of the primary messengers, (Congressman Nunes) and fill coverage with anti-Trump stories. The Obama spy program is perhaps among the most illegal acts of any administration in American history. People go to jail for this kind of thing.
Jeff Flock is a normally mild-mannered, easy-going, man-on-the-street reporter, but when a white SEIU union boss informed a union member (who also happened to be a black woman) that she was not to speak to him (after she had initially agreed to do so) well, Mr. Flock had something to say about that:
Megyn Kelly threw quite a bit of shade over her fellow Fox News talents during yet another round of promotion for her just-released book, “Settle for More” in which Kelly accuses some on Fox of settling for less when it came to asking real questions of Donald Trump.
Trump is a primary focal point of Kelly’s book, and it is clear that at the time of its writing, she was certain Trump was going to be defeated and that she would be able to claim herself to have played a pivotal part in that defeat.
Donald Trump wasn’t defeated, though, leaving Kelly promoting a book that is now far removed from reality.
Sean Hannity, who has been and remains an unapologetic supporter of Donald Trump, was quick to respond:
Curious who she was referring to. I am transparent, I want to defeat Isis, protect the homeland and get people out of poverty and working! https://t.co/tranPp7y2k
Recently, Fox News execs declared Megyn Kelly to be the longtime leading cable news network’s “future.”
If so, that future doesn’t appear particularly bright…
As the most recent viewership numbers show, Kelly’s program indicates a decided downward shift from Bill O’Reilly’s lead-in program, and then, even more damning for Kelly, is how the ratings jump back up for the Sean Hannity program, even though Hannity should, given the later time slot, have the smaller audience.
Hannity has made clear his support of Donald Trump, while Kelly has for the past year, taken to filling her one-hour show with anti-Trump guests and rhetoric.
It would appear that stance is now taking a considerable toll on Kelly’s ratings – and Fox’s bottom-line. She is now in second place for her time slot behind MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, a seemingly inconceivable result that has now become reality. And the all-important ages 25-54 demographic delivers even worse news for Kelly, where she is finishing a distant third:
Once again, Kelly’s numbers decline from the O-Reilly lead-in, and then those numbers go back up for the Sean Hannity show. None of the other cable news networks show this kind audience loss.
Word is, Fox News is bleeding advertising dollars now, with most of that loss focused on Megyn Kelly.
