Ex-Fox new contributor slams Sean Hannity and Fox News for being propaganda outlet for Donald Trump.

Well said!

Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a former Fox News contributor who in the past harshly criticized President Barack Obama’s foreign policy, unloaded on his former network in an interview with CNN on Wednesday night for its part in pushing a baseless conspiracy theory about the FBI spying on President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

“For years, I was glad to be associated with Fox. It was a legitimate conservative and libertarian outlet, and a necessary one,” Peters said. “But with the rise of Donald Trump, Fox did become a destructive propaganda machine, and I don’t do propaganda for anyone.”Peters, a Pottstown native who attended Penn State before enlisting in the Army in 1976, said the network’s prime-time opinion hosts shoulder the blame for undermining public support in the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Hosts like Sean Hannity have been repeatedly pushing unfounded theories for the last year about a “deep state” determined to tear down Trump and his administration, the latest dubbed “Spygate” by the president himself.

“I suspect Hannity really believes it. The others are smarter. They know what they’re doing,” Peters said. “It’s bewildering to me. I mean, I wanted to just cry out and say, how can you do this? How can you lie to our country? How can you knowingly attack our Constitution, the bedrock of our system of government, the bedrock of our country?”

“Before he became a candidate or president, Donald Trump was the perfect target for Russian intelligence. Here is someone who has no self-control, a sense of sexual entitlement, and intermittent financial crisis. I mean, that’s made-to-order for seduction by Russian intelligence,” Peters said. “And, look, I may be wrong. I hope I’m wrong. I hope he doesn’t have a grip on him. But the dossier rings true. I think in the future, we’re going to look back at the much-maligned Christopher Steele, who took that dossier to the FBI, as something of a hero.”

We need a lot more of these Fox News co-conspirators to come out and tell the truth about the network and their lies to cover for Donald Trump.

Though I have to admit that I have a sneaking suspicion that once they leave Fox they essentially just disappear forever in the eyes of the viewers of that channel.

    Peters is mistakien if he thinks the problem began with Drumpf being elected. Or he is being willfully ignorant.

    “Critics say diGenova, 76, and Toensing, 73, talk as though they’re on Trump’s payroll. They’re not, according to three sources — but they nearly were. In mid-March, Sekulow announced that Trump had hired diGenova to join his defense team. But six days later he issued a second statement explaining that “conflicts” prevented both diGenova and his wife from becoming Trump’s attorneys. The couple did represent two other clients involved in the Russia probe, but both signed waivers clearing them to work with the president.

    Other factors seemed to be at play: As POLITICO reported, Trump lawyers argued against their selection, citing their fondness for conspiracy theories. Philip LaCovara, a former counsel for the Watergate prosecution team and a former law partner of Toensing who has known the couple for 30 years, said that diGenova in particular “used to be more mainstream, but the ensuing decades [has shown] a bizarre tendency to spot demonic conspirators lurking behind every bush.””<georges by chance?

    OT?
    “I have not spoken to Vladimir Putin for quite a while. It has been discussed. Some people like the idea of bringing Russia back in. This used to be the G8, not the G7. And something happened a while ago that Russia is no longer in. I think it would be an asset for Russia to be back in. I think it would be good for the United States, all the current countries of the G7. I think the G8 would be better. I think having Russia back in would be a positive thing. We’re looking for peace in the world. We’re not looking to play games.”

      “Trump repeated a list of grievances about U.S. trade, mainly with the European Union and Canada, a French presidency official told reporters.

      “And so began a long litany of recriminations, somewhat bitter reports that the United States was treated unfairly, that the trading system was totally unfavorable to the United States, the American economy, American workers, the middle class,”
      “On Saturday, Trump arrived late for the first working session on gender equality but Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau forged ahead with opening remarks without him, commenting wryly about “stragglers”.”

      ‘“Today crystallizes precisely why Putin was so eager to see Trump elected,” said Ned Price, a former CIA analyst and the National Security Council spokesman under then-President Barack Obama. “For Putin, this is return on his investment, and it’s safe to say that his investment has paid off beyond even his wildest {WET} dreams.””On HIS way from the White House to a Marine helicopter waiting on the South Lawn, Trump told reporters that Putin probably wished that Democrat Hillary Clinton had been elected president rather than HIM. “I have been Ru$$ia’s worst nightmare,”<RiiiggghhhttT

    OT? “Howard Dean said while talking about obstruction of justice on MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber, “Well, first of all, it is a crime. The question is whether or not the president can be indicted and convicted. There’s a difference of opinion on that. Most scholars think he can be indicted. Secondly, this is what crOOks do.” NO crOOks are smart, because they always think it’s never going happen to them. This is Trump’s M.O. He says the most outrageous things because he never thinks it’s going effect him and it always does. That’s what happened to Paul manafort and it’s going happen to Donald Trump.”
    “Even with incumbency on his side, the biggest reason why Republicans may lose everything by 2020 is Trump.
    ~IT~ is common knowledge that Trump is a crOOk and no amount of MAGA hats or Russian Facebook ads can change”<THAT FACT.

    Polls show that even most Dotard supporters know Dotard lies. That’s not important to them. What is important to them is that Dotard continues to fight for white supremacy and nationalism. If Dotard stops that fight, he loses his supporters.

    When are these imbeciles going to be beamed up to their mothership? Soon. Scientists are saying they have to have a type of alien to colonize Mars and stoopid fucking wingnuts are about as alien as it gets. From NBC News- But the call to put Homo sapiens permanently on Mars seems to sidestep a perverse irony: experts say that a long period of isolation on the red planet — where gravity and sunlight are weaker than on Earth and mutation-causing radiation more intense — could eventually cause the bodies of Mars colonists to change. And at least one expert believes the colonists could evolve into a new species.

    In other words, becoming a multiplanet species might lead us to become multiple species.

    God said be multiple and have fruit flies and then he/she got a good look at SFW and retched in horror.
