Conservatives Look For a New Network

With the far-left Huffington Post proclaiming openly gay Shepard Smith as “the future” of Fox News, many conservatives are looking elsewhere for news and information. Almost on cue, it has been announced that a new digital conservative TV channel called CRTV is launching this December that will be featuring Mark Levin, Michelle Malkin and Mark Steyn. There is also talk of “Trump TV.”

Since the forced departure of Roger Ailes, reports Ryan Grim of The Huffington Post, Rupert Murdoch’s two sons, James and Lachlan, “have taken a bigger role inside the network.” In a reference to host Sean Hannity, a hard-core Trump supporter, Grim says they intend to jettison “some of the knuckle-dragging, opinion-heavy approach to politics,” and give more leeway to Shepard Smith, Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly.

It has been rumored for years that James Murdoch, the liberal Murdoch son who buys into global warming hysteria, is the real heir to his father’s media business. The New York Times has described him as “steadfastly liberal” and notes that he “has supported Bill Clinton and Al Gore, whose daughter he befriended at Harvard.”

James Murdoch, chief operating officer of 21st Century Fox, has given somewhere between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.

Grim reported, “The [Murdoch] brothers are reportedly working hard to woo [Megyn] Kelly, hoping she’ll stay at Fox past the election and help shape the network’s post-Ailes identity.”

Kelly got into a nasty dispute with Trump during one of the debates when she challenged his comments about the looks of certain women. For her part, Kelly has used her sex appeal to gain viewership, and even appeared in sexually-suggestive poses in GQ magazine. One photo showed her pulling down the strap of her dress, about to expose her bare breast.

The Huffington Post’s embrace of Shepard Smith, who anchors a program on the Fox News Channel, is an indication of where the liberal-left want to see the programming move. But despite the snide innuendo that conservatives are involved in “opinion-heavy” programming, it’s Smith who has used his anchor position to smear conservative personalities and their values. He called respect for traditional marriage “intolerance,” and said Christians who affirmed Biblical values were “haters.” These comments reflected his personal commitment to the homosexual agenda. Indeed, his recent acknowledgement of being a homosexual was confirmation of the obvious.

With various personalities on Fox News going easy on the Clintons and refusing to critically cover the homosexual agenda, many conservatives are talking about the need for alternative channels. Long-time writer and reporter Peter LaBarbera, who runs Americans for Truth, told Accuracy in Media, “I think this whole [2016 presidential] campaign will give rise to a new network. How much do social conservatives have to suffer if the ‘conservative’ network, Fox, abandons them?”

The launch of “Trump Tower Live,” to provide coverage of the campaign from Trump operatives, was seen by some observers as a template for a new network.

Soon, however, an announcement was made about the launch of CRTV. “This is a movement with millions of liberty lovers who know cable TV content doesn’t square with their world-view,” said CRTV personality Mark Levin.

Regarding the other Fox News personalities favorably highlighted by Ryan Grim of The Huffington Post, it’s true that Chris Wallace has mostly come across as an objective observer of the political scene who treats both sides with scrutiny. He was praised for his handling of the third presidential debate.

Bret Baier, chief political anchor of Fox News and anchor of Special Report with Bret Baier, does a generally good job on his show as well. But he pulled out of a major Catholic conference under left-wing and homosexual pressure when it was revealed that a Catholic journal associated with the sponsor of the event had published an article about leaving the homosexual lifestyle. Baier was not supposed to speak on that subject, however. He was going to talk about the role of his Catholic faith in his personal and family life.

AIM has noted on several occasions that the Fox News Channel is a major contributor to the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association (NLGJA), and recruits homosexuals at the group’s events. Indeed, Smith and Kelly, among other Fox News personalities, have raised money for the NLGJA. In April, 2015, Fox News Channel joined CBS News and CNN as “silver” sponsors of the NLGJA 20th annual New York “Headlines & Headliners” fundraising event. A male stripper performed at the event.

Bob Creamer Admits To Daily Calls With The Clinton Campaign And More…

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Disgraced Robert Creamer is having even more of his dirty laundry aired by James O’Keefe and Project Veritas. Wonder how his commie wife, Congresswoman and fellow Marxist, Jan Schakowsky, feels about that. It would seem that Creamer was beyond cozy with the Clinton campaign. He has been on daily morning calls with the campaign with his input. He’s also, not surprisingly, worked directly with Obama to organize “issue campaigns.”

Robert Creamer has been a political organizer and strategist for almost four decades. He and his firm, the Strategic Consulting Group, work with many of the country’s most significant issue campaigns. He was one of the major architects and organizers of the successful campaign to defeat the privatization of Social Security. He worked to end the war in Iraq, pass universal healthcare, change America’s budget priorities and enact comprehensive immigration reform. He’s been a very busy little Marxist.

His clients have included labor unions, public interest groups and advocacy organizations like MoveOn.org, Americans United for Change and USAction. He has also worked on hundreds of electoral campaigns at the local, state and national levels.

Now he is best known for getting caught up in a sting by Project Veritas. He also accepted a foreign donation for a Democratic Super PAC for $20,000. Then he returned it once he suspected he was being set up. A little too late, Bob. That donation was from Project Veritas themselves.

From Breitbart:

Disgraced Democratic operative Robert Creamer participated in daily calls with the Hillary Clinton campaign, and worked directly with President Barack Obama to organize “issue campaigns.”

Creamer makes the admissions in the latest undercover video release from James O’Keefe and Project Veritas, which captured Creamer describing his activities.

O’Keefe also reports that Creamer accepted a foreign donation for a Democratic super PAC.

In this fourth video in the series, “Rigging the Election,” Creamer tells a journalist with Project Veritas that he does indeed work for the Clinton campaign and is in fact in charge of “overseeing” activities at the Trump rallies: “I mean frankly I spend most of my time overseeing the Trump event rallies, I mean that’s what I do for the Clinton campaign.” He has actively choreographed “bird dogging” at Trump’s rallies to gin up violence. He’s also placed infiltrators in Donald Duck costumes at Trump events. So lame. This has been going on for more than a year.

Robby Mook, Clinton’s campaign manager, flat out lied last week and said he never worked with Creamer. But O’Keefe’s videos expose that whopper of a lie.

In this latest video, Creamer details some of his connections: “Every morning I am on a call at 10:30 that goes over the message being driven by the campaign headquarters … I am in this campaign mainly to deal with what earned media with television, radio, with earned media and social media, not with paid media, not with advertising.” Even more damning is a conference call mentioned where they discussed a woman potentially coming forward against Trump to accuse him of inappropriate behavior.

Creamer has known and worked with Obama since the 1980s, during his community organizing days. He goes on to add: “I do a lot of work with the White House on their issues, helping to run issue campaigns that they have been involved in. I mean, for immigration reform for the… the health care bill, for trying to make America more like Britain when it comes to gun violence issues.”

I assume there will be even more videos to come. Creamer has resigned from Americans United for Change over all this and his reputation is now trashed. This is what happens when you make your living scheming against others. Eventually you get caught up in it as well. Fresh out of sympathy for Creamer.
