FOX NEWS = FAKE NEWS!





Bill O'Reilly is a SEXUAL PREDATOR...who's listening to this meathead?

Doesn't anyone remember that he called an 'underling,' masturbated on the phone? Transcripts were made available - she recorded the calls - case quietly settled.

Sexual harassment seems rampant at Fox News = Fake News.

And he's lied about so much else....grossly overpaid bloviator.

Swedish 'national security advisor' interviewed by Fox News not known to Swedish officials: report

Fox News's “The O'Reilly Factor” this week featured a guest with inaccurate credentials, The Washington Post reported Saturday.
During the show on Thursday, the network invited Swedish journalist Anne-Sofie Naslund and “Swedish defense and national security advisor” Nils Bildt to talk about the country's immigration policy.
According to the Post, the Dagens Nyheter newspaper on Friday reported that Bildt is unknown to the Swedish Foreign Ministry and the armed forces.
The newspaper reported that Bildt came to the U.S. from Sweden in 1994. He is listed as one of the founders of Modus World LLC, a company that provides consulting "and management of possible kidnap and ransom situations.”
“I made clear that I am an independent analyst,” Bildt told the Post, noting he did not choose the credentials under which he was introduced.
Fox News defended their decision to book Bildt, stating that the guest was pre-interviewed and was recommended by numerous sources.
“Our booker made numerous inquiries and spoke to people who recommended Nils Bildt and after pre-interviewing him and reviewing his bio, we agreed that he would make a good guest for the topic that evening,” the executive producer of show, David Tabacoff, told the Post.
O'Reilly is expected to address the issue during his show Monday night, a network spokesperson told The Hill.

Genetic Superiority disproved by the caliber of its supporters!



Those who profess GENETIC SUPERIORITY have disproved the theory!

Look at the Wack-A-Dings incapable of functioning without HATE.

Oppressing others to feed your GREED makes you a THUG, not a superior human being.

Steve Bannon’s disturbing views on ‘genetic superiority’ are shared by Trump

They also validate a core belief of white nationalists.


Former Breitbart head Steve Bannon has been a national lightning rod ever since he was appointed CEO of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. At-issue: Bannon’s deep ties to the growing white nationalist movement, which provided some of Trump’s earliest and most fervent supporters.
On Sunday the New York Times published a profile on Bannon, casting him as a “combative populist.” Buried deep within the profile is an account of Bannon talking about his belief in the “genetic superiority” of certain people and his support for restricting voting rights to only property owners.
A former colleague of Bannon’s, Julia Jones, recounted her interactions with Bannon to reporter Scott Shane:
Ms. Jones, the film colleague, said that in their years working together, Mr. Bannon occasionally talked about the genetic superiority of some people and once mused about the desirability of limiting the vote to property owners.
“I said, ‘That would exclude a lot of African-Americans,’” Ms. Jones recalled. “He said, ‘Maybe that’s not such a bad thing.’ I said, ‘But what about Wendy?’” referring to Mr. Bannon’s executive assistant. “He said, ‘She’s different. She’s family.’”
Jones also previously described Bannon’s comments about voting to The Daily Beast.
Restricting voting to only property holders would take the country back centuries to its founding — when only white, male property holders could vote in most states. Today, such a restriction would disenfranchise huge swaths of people, including students, people of color, young Americans, many city dwellers, and low-income populations.
Far from populism, this is Revolutionary-era elitism drawn along racist lines. And for white nationalists, it’s a familiar goal.
Former KKK wizard David Duke, for example, has been proclaiming on Twitter that Trump’s election and cabinet picks are the first steps toward “taking America back” — that is, taking America “back” from anyone who isn’t descended from fair-skinned Europeans. In white nationalist ideology, only white Americans have a true right to the country — and the rights that go along with citizenship, like voting.
Bannon’s musings on voting restrictions are a dog-whistle to white nationalists. The same goes for his reference to “genetic superiority,” a view that Donald Trump also has said he shares.
Trump has repeatedly connected his success to his “good genes,” as ThinkProgress previously reportedHe’s said that his children “don’t need adversity” to build character or skills, because they share his good genetics.In an interview once, he went so far as to compare himself to a “racehorse” and discussing his “breeding” at length.
The belief in the genetic predisposition of qualities like intelligence are a hallmark of white nationalism.






In Trump’s rhetoric on genes, white nationalists hear validation of their belief that genetics alone can qualify someone for leadership — or make them inherently inferior. Genetics and connections to race are a common theme on white nationalist, neo-Nazi sites like American Renaissance and Stormfront.
Yet despite the validation Bannon (and Trump) have given to white nationalist ideologies, many insist that the term “white nationalist” is inappropriate. Woven throughout the New York Times profile were quotes from Bannon’s friends and family pointing to his personal relationships with people of color, and therefore insisting that he was not, himself, a racist.
And in his actions, Trump has elevated figures like Bannon and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, another white nationalist favorite. Their history and words validate white nationalist ideas, as do some of Trump’s own. With validation from national leaders comes what Trump called “energy” — a public resurgence of white nationalist fervor.

(CNN)Rep. Peter King said Thursday that he won't do town hall meetings because he believes they would just devolve into a "screaming session," adding that angry town halls "trivialize" and "diminish" democracy.
The New York Republican noted his many appearances on national television and meetings with supporters and opponents of Obamacare in his office.
"As best I can tell, there are people who are angry, we saw that on election night -- the Hillary people basically went into depression when Donald Trump won," King said on AM970 The Answer. "The anguish on the campuses. There are people who are just angry, they're angry that Trump won, that Hillary lost. There's others who are being, I guess, egged on, if you will. So I'm assuming that they're all legitimate, but to me it just does not serve a purpose. It really diminishes democracy if you're gonna show up to a meeting to just scream and yell.
    "In my case, I am not having these town hall meetings because to me all they do is just turn into a screaming session," he said. "What I am doing, I have done every national TV show."
    King said while he was "meeting with people in the office" who support and want to repeal Obamacare along with advocacy groups, doctors and hospitals, it wouldn't make sense to try explain that to a room of people.
    "To try to explain that, when you're in front of a room and everyone is screaming and yelling, makes no sense, and really trivializes democracy," King said. "I'm gonna do a telephone town hall, where people can call in. But to me, to turn this into a spectacle -- and I'm against it on either side. I just think if you want to have a intelligent logical discussion that's fine, but just to turn it into who can scream and yell the loudest. ... I have 800,000 people in my district. So let's say three or 400 people show up to scream. Do I listen to those as opposed to the others who aren't there? On the other hand, I'm not ignoring the fact that people are angry and have some legitimate grievances."

    'Incredibly Disappointing': Democrats Choose Tom Perez to Head Party

    DNC 'chose to continue the failed Clinton strategy of prioritizing wealthy donors over the activist base'

    Democrats on Saturday chose Tom Perez to lead the party, sparking criticism from progressive organizations who say picking the former labor secretary over the other front-runner, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), was a missed opportunity for the party.
    Perez's win was secured in a second round of voting by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) gathered in Atlanta, getting 235 votes to Ellison's 200.

    It marks the end of a race many observers saw as a choice between the establishment and the progressive wing of the party. Ellison had the backing of lawmakers like Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and groups including National Nurses United and the Communications Workers of America; Perez was backed by "many from former President Obama's political orbit," as ABC News writes, and "is viewed—with good reason—as a reliable functionary and trustworthy loyalist by those who have controlled the party and run it into the ground," journalist Glenn Greenwald wrote this week. 

    Erich Pica, president of Friends of the Earth Action, which supported Ellison, said the outcome showed "[t]he DNC is out of touch with the American public and their needs. Democratic leaders were at a crossroads and today they chose to continue the failed Clinton strategy of prioritizing wealthy donors over the activist base."

    "This incredibly disappointing result is another missed opportunity for a Democratic Party desperately trying to regain relevance and proves, once again, how out of touch party insiders are with the grassroots movement currently in the streets, on the phone, and at town halls nationwide," added Jim Dean, chair of Democracy for America.

    "Nonetheless, the Resistance will persist in showing progressive leaders how to unrelentingly take on [President Donald] Trump, with or without the leadership of the Democratic National Committee," Dean said.

    Ellison, whom Perez chose as deputy, said following the results, "We don't have the luxury folks to walk out of this room divided." He added in a statement: "We must be united—because we live in times when the judiciary is under attack, when the press is under attack, and hate groups are desecreating Jewish cemetaries and defacing mosques."
    Ahead of the vote for chair, the DNC's meeting got off to what one political observer described as a "very, very bad start." The Huffington Post reports:
    Democratic National Committee members on Saturday voted down a resolution that would have reinstated former President Barack Obama’s ban on corporate political action committee donations to the party.

    Resolution 33, introduced by DNC Vice Chair Christine Pelosi, would also have forbidden “registered, federal corporate lobbyists” from serving as “DNC chair-appointed, at-large members.”

    A majority of the 442 eligible DNC members rejected the resolution after roughly a dozen members rose to speak for and against it.
    Voting down that resolution coupled with choosing Perez makes it "[p]retty clear where the official party organ stands on the divide," tweeted Huffington Postreporter Zach Carter.

    Betsy DeVos: her charters worst-performing in the nation: God & Amway!


    A sobering look at what Betsy DeVos did to education in Michigan — and what she might do as secretary of education


    Well, that didn't take long:

    House Bill 610 makes some large changes. Inform yourselves.
    This bill will effectively start the school voucher system to be used by children ages 5-17, and starts the defunding process of public schools.
    In addition the bill will eliminate the Elementary and Education Act of 1965, which is the nation's educational law and provides equal opportunity in education.
    ESSA is a big comprehensive program that covers programs for struggling learners, AP classes, ESL classes, classes for minorities such as Native Americans, Rural Education, Education for the Homeless, School Safety (Gun-Free schools), Monitoring and Compliance and Federal Accountability Programs.

    The Bill also abolishes the Nutritional Act of 2012 (No Hungry Kids Act) which provides nutritional standards in school breakfast and lunch.

    Some things ESSA does for Children with Disabilities
    -Ensures access to the general education curriculum.Ensures access to accommodations on assessments.
    -Ensures concepts of Universal Design for Learning
    -Includes provisions that require local education agencies to provide evidence-based
    interventions in schools with consistently under-performing subgroups.
    -Requires states in Title I plans to address how they will improve conditions for learning including reducing incidents of bullying and harassment in schools, overuse of discipline practices and reduce the use of aversive behavioral interventions (such as restraints and seclusion).

    Please call your representative and ask him/her to vote NO on House Bill 610 (HR 610) introduced by three Republican reps.
    PLEASE copy and paste, don't just share. That limits it to friends we have in common. Thank you.
