Ex-Fox News Reporter NOW Sees the Light: Trump Bad

Quick hit, my sisters and brothers. I want to share. I am sensing a pattern, a tremor in the force. I am struggling to put it all together. Perhaps you can help in the comments, point me in the right direction. Ex Fox chief political reporter, Carl Cameron (can that possibly be his real name? Whatever.), went on Ari Melba’s show and did something that it seems many former hostage — many former people inside the Trump orbit do. Cameron suddenly sees that we’re led by a complete and total psychotic presence. And a dick, too. Cameron says there is not enough time in the day to list all of Trump’s problems. I take that as a personal affront because I give it one hell of a try. But this isn’t about me, let’s hear some more before we judge. “We have to think about our national reputation worldwide now, with the president at the G-7 meeting in France, how the rest of the world is looking at the U.S.,” Cameron said. “We like to think of ourselves as world leaders. The president is not leading. So what are we?” he asked. “The United States of America’s reputation is at stake because its president is being irresponsible and violating our values and our traditions.” The pattern that I am seeing is that once people step outside Trump’s direct power, they suddenly have a revelation. Trump is a danger to the United States. Or am I just making this up because it feels right? No, I am not, and you are well-aware of this pattern, too. After all, we’ve got more than a few examples of it already. In no particular order: Michael Cohen Rex Tillerson Steve Bannon Everyone in Congress or the Senate that has bolted? Okay, that’s enough because there’s no point in listing all of them because that would take up near as much time as the list of things wrong with Trump. In fact, there’s some overlap there, too. It isn’t a knock so much on the people who have formerly had little room to work, and had a reason to fall in line. Though, it actually is, now that I think about it. But the more prescient point is that it makes one wonder just what the fck are the people still inside thinking? One has to presume that there would be a cabal of insiders that will never be comfortable outside of Trump’s grip; Ivanka, Don Jr. Eric, the people who will – or won’t – inherit the money, and perhaps Steven Miller, who will definitely inherit the racist legacy. Outside that? I doubt there’s a single one. Maybe Sarah Huck, maybe not. She might need some more space than the others. She is a bit more invested, having publicly lied for the man and just as publicly sold her soul. It could take her more time. I suspect this is the ultimate comment on the Trump trench in which the country finds itself. Everyone that gets out alive and not in cuffs must redeem themselves with the sane world. It could be worse, they could be so stuck in Stockholm, the syndrome never abates. I guess this is actually the final comment on Trump, his grip isn’t that strong, on anyone, except maybe Steven […]

Two People, Outside Government, Could and Likely Will, Take Trump Down

Of course, there are any number of people who control information that would destroy Trump and his presidency, perhaps even his personal freedom. But, nearly all of the “typical” people who could topple the administration are within the administration, or outside this country. However, there are two people who work outside of government, two people without any secret inside information, could easily take Trump down with ease and speed. Rupert and Lachlan Murdock. The two people who control Fox News, known by some to be “Trump TV” are inextricably tied to Trump’s fate. Like Pompeo and Barr, the Murdoch future is hinging upon the correct determination as to when to jump off the S.S. Trump, as it careens recklessly through a sea of icebergs. Obviously, Rupert sold his soul long ago, pumping up Trump to loyal viewers, harvesting advertising dollars that go straight into the Murdoch family bank account. But, Lachlan, the younger Murdoch, must necessarily focus upon the long-term Fox future. Lachlan cannot allow the network to cross the Trump event horizon, that black hole that eventually sucks in everyone who blindly revolves around Trump. Lachlan must navigate the situation such that he knows when to blast off tp a safer and more stable orbit. Without “Trump TV” propaganda to manipulate each new shocking revelation, Trump is, quite literally, sunk. As noted in a great column in Rawstory: Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch decide what propaganda gets sold as news on the Fox cable channel. They helped create the false image of Trump the great leader. Their compliant and highly paid program hosts have sustained Trump, attacking anyone who challenges the president, riling up his base. But the relationship between the network and Trump has been fraying for months. Now may be the time for the Murdochs to finally let it unravel. I agree. We have noted over and over that the Trump movement resembles a cult, perhaps it is a cult (look at the way Qanon became “mainstream” within the supporters). Like any cult, the leader does no wrong, and is never questioned. But, as we’ve said, cults do not last forever, and the moment something pierces a cult leader’s invulnerability, the movement folds, blindingly fast, and nothing the leader does can save it. The Murdochs, for whatever else they may be, are not stupid, and understand the dynamic all too well. They will not risk their golden empire attempting to prop-up a man committed to destroying himself and the nation he “leads.” Additionally, unlike real news organizations, the Murdochs control the “news” slant at Fox with an iron grip. If the Murdochs direct the entertainer Sean Hannity to stop with his ludicrous assaults on Trump critics, then Hannity will. If they give new scripts to the actors playing journalists on Fox & Friends they will follow those scripts. If they generally signal to Fox News and Fox Business hosts that Trump is persona non grata they will get the message and repeat it. That is what makes Fox unlike legitimate news organizations where editors or producers w,ho try to issue such orders would at best be refused and at worst be forced out. This Murdochian style can be adopted to benefit our nation. Does anyone doubt the summation? Think about what Fox has to lose. After years of […]
