Lou Dobbs was one of President Donald Trump’s staunchest supporters on Fox. Now that the election is over and many are going turncoat on the President, Dobbs finds himself without a job. Dobbs’ show, which began in 2011, was the highest-rated show on Fox Business. So what went wrong?

Dobbs was among many media personalities who raised questions about the integrity of voting machines. But recently, in what appears to be a targeted assault not only on Fox News but conservative figures in general, Dobbs was sued alongside Judge Jeanine Pirro, Maria Bartiromo, Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani. This frivolous $2.7 billion defamation suit was filed by Smartmatic, alleging that the defendants spread lies that the company had rigged the election against Donald Trump.

Though Democrats pretend that the idea the election was rigged is crazy, half of Republicans believe the election was rigged. And if half the people in the building think it’s on fire, it’s probably on fire. Dobbs seems to confirm that the lawsuit was the reason for his removal, tweeting an article about it. He also tweeted a “thank you” to President Trump, who had voiced his support following the continued purge of his supporters:

Fox News played coy with Dobbs’ dismissal.  “As we said in October, Fox News Media regularly considers programming changes and plans have been in place to launch new formats as appropriate post-election, including on Fox Business – this is part of those planned changes,” a spokeswoman said, refusing to elaborate on why the network canned its highest-rated host. “A new 5 p.m. program will be announced in the near future.”

Dobbs’ time slot will be filled, for now, with a rotating cast. He remains under contract, so he is not free to find employment elsewhere.

Democrats cry foul whenever President Trump happens to benefit from something the government does, but you know what they’ve been quiet as mice about? Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apparent financial improprieties involving her husband’s business — specifically during the 2020 election cycle, when she paid his firm over three-fourths of its total income for the year.

Apparently, Omar used campaign funds to keep her husband’s troubled consulting firm alive. The Washington Free Beacon reports:

The E Street Group, a D.C. consulting firm owned by Tim Mynett, Omar’s husband, and his partner Will Hailer, received $3.7 million from political committees this past cycle. Omar’s campaign was by far its biggest moneymaker, doling out 146 checks for $2.9 million, or 78 percent of the firm’s payments. Its second-biggest cash source was Omar mentor Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D., Wash.), whose campaign provided $194,000. The two combined for 85 percent of the firm’s payments.

Omar’s payments to E Street constituted a large part of her campaign expenditures. Her committee spent $5.2 million, meaning that the $2.9 million that she funneled to her husband’s firm was 56 percent of the campaign’s operational costs. The money went toward advertisements, mail, consulting, and travel.

Let’s review: Ilhan Omar spent more than half of her campaign’s operating costs to funnel her husband’s consulting firm almost 80 percent of its total 2020 income. Another Democrat, Omar’s close friend, helped. Omar continued to pay her husband until November, when she stopped because people started to catch on.

 “I don’t pay my husband, I pay the firm to do work, and that 600 really is an example of that work,” Omar said after she was caught pumping $600,000 into her husband’s business over a three-week period for what she describes as run-of-the-mill campaign work.  “And so what we do is that we have this firm really carry out the contractual work that we do with other vendors.”

Then, she sent an email to supporters, explaining that she didn’t want any “perceived issues” with her shady activity. But, of course, $2.9 million is a lot of “perceived issues.”

The money didn’t stop there, however. Omar’s husband’s firm also took more than $500,000 in COVID-19 bailout cash. This was intended to help small businesses, but is there ever such a thing as too much money when you’re as corrupt as Omar and her husband?

Democrats have made a big show of keeping the National Guard in D.C. post-election, but many are wondering how much that has cost us. On one hand, it cost us huge in the respect department as it became known that the Biden administration forced these brave men and women it was used as political props to sleep in parking garages and use overflowing port-a-potties. The whole world saw this. On the other hand — the one where the money is concerned — it also cost us huge.

Americans are outraged at the poor treatment of our men and women in uniform. But that’s nothing compared to how they will feel after they learn how the costs of this showboating “protection” are allocated. Business Insider reports:

The cost of deploying about 26,000 National Guard troops to secure the US Capitol in the wake of the deadly January 6 riot is nearly $500 million, US military officials said Thursday…

Officials said the nearly $500 million includes the costs of transporting Guard troops from their states to Washington, their salaries and benefits, as well as housing and other essentials. The officials were not authorized to publicly discuss internal figures and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Yes, you read that right. “housing and other essentials..” Here is what that “housing” looked like until they got caught:

A half-billion dollars spent and our troops are sleeping on concrete despite being in an area where there are plenty of buildings capable of housing them. Reports say they were forced to breathe exhaust fumes and use overflowing, disgusting porta-potties.

To this day, National Guard troops — called in for the inauguration — remain as a “show of force” so Democrats can feel safe from crows of patriotic, mostly-peaceful protesters. $500,000 has been spent to force our men and women who protect the DC Democrats to sleep tightly-packed in the cold, eating rations and using unsanitary bathrooms.

They deserve better, and Americans deserve for their tax dollars to be better spent.

Recently, the Screen Actors Guild, American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA), threatened to expel President Trump for the same ridiculous reasons as social media companies have been banning him — the narrative that he in some way incited violence at the Capitol. Though it’s true that some who were arrested alongside many Democrats and nonvoters were Republicans, President Trump had nothing to do with the unrest. He tried to calm the crowd down and found himself kicked off social media for doing so.

The union claims to have found “probable cause” that the President  “violated the union’s Constitution” when he allegedly caused the Capitol Hill protests, which ended with the death of an unarmed Trump supporter who was gunned down by Capitol police, to turn violent.

President Trump decided to just do the job for them, and he resigned in a magnificent fashion. “I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!” Trump wrote. Then he slammed the union with a list of his film and TV accomplishments:

“While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2Zoolander, and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps; and television shows including ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,’ ‘Saturday Night Live,’ and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, ‘The Apprentice’—to name just a few!”

The President added that he “also greatly helped the cable news television business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others.”

President Trump pointed out that SAG-AFTRA has a “dismal record as a union” and that it has done “little for its members and nothing for [Trump] — — besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas…”

The President pointed out that the union is so bad that actors recently had to record a video asking, “Why isn’t the union fighting for me?” The video, which criticized the union’s health plan, included mega-celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg and Amy Schumer, who pointed out at the time that the union was about to kick 12,000 members — many elderly — off the plan.

“I no longer wish to be associated with your union,” he concluded. “As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resigning from SAG-AFTRA.” Then he dropped the mic: “You have done nothing for me.”

It’s always hilarious when useless nobodies try to attack President Trump. He always has hits wits about him and keeps the upper hand.

Are you a white supremacist? According to “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib, there’s an easy way to tell. Do you think Marjorie Taylor Greene has been railroaded by Dems? Do you think she shouldn’t be stripped of committee assignments just because The Swamp hates her? Are you at all concerned with one party silencing the opposition because she made a few controversial statements? Guess what — you’re a white supremacist.

After voting to strip Taylor Greene of her committee assignments, Tlaib explained that supporting the Republican congresswoman, who came under fire for “liking” comments on social media that made Democrats uncomfortable, is exactly the same as supporting the Democrat-invented Ku Klux Klan, Nazis, and other white supremacist groups.

“Every single day that goes by without outright condemnation from every single one of her Republican colleagues, without consequences for her extremist views, is an endorsement of white supremacy,” Tlaib says.

In fact, according to Tlaib, MTG is directly responsible for the Capitol demonstration that led to the brutal murder of an unarmed pro-Trump protester at the hands of Capitol police.

“All of it is led by hate rhetoric like this,” Tlaib said. “So I urge my colleagues to please, please take what happened on January 6 seriously. It will lead to more death. And we can do better. We must do better.”

Fellow squad member Ilhan Omar called Greene “dangerous and violent” without any evidence to back up her claims. “This is not somebody that should be in office, you know, someone said yesterday instead of being in Congress, this person needs to be on a watch list.” 

And there you have it. Conservatives who express, yes, controversial views like MTG should be on a “watch list.” But they’re not just coming for her. They’re coming for all of us. Efforts have already been made to classify so much as waving the American flag a terrorist act. It’s a dangerous time to be a conservative in America — and it’s only going to get worse.

Democrats have been engaged in an all-out assault on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, even having her removed from committee assignments because she shared some controversial opinions that make the Swamp uncomfortable. But you know what else is uncomfortable? Incest — and Ilhan Omar seems to be engaged in it.

Recently, Omar accused Taylor Greene of inciting violence — the latest in Democrats’ attempts to criminalize being a conservative. Omar recently said in a statement that “Republican efforts to whitewash Marjorie Taylor Greene’s incitement of violence” are “rooted in racism, misogyny, and Islamophobia.” She goes on to claim that the Trump-allied Congresswoman “actively encouraged the insurrection on the Capitol that threatened my life and the life of every Member of Congress.”

Greene fired back, hitting Omar where it hurts — right in her incestuous marriage to he brother. “You provided aid and comfort to enemies of the American people that rioted violently in your state by sharing MFF bail bond links,” she said in a tweet. “And by the way, marrying your brother is ILLEGAL in Minnesota.”

Omar is under investigation by the FBI for allegations that she married her brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi — though Omar denies they are related. Elmi has identified himself as Omar’s children’s “uncle” on multiple occasions. Omar is accused of marrying her brother to obtain a green card for him.

Democrats love to go on the assault against conservatives, but they probably need to learn that when one lives in a glass house, they shouldn’t throw stones — especially when said “glass house” contains a weird, incestuous relationship with one’s brother that may or may not be for a green card.

We can expect more attacks like we have seen against MJT from the Democrats. The target will change, but the goal wil not: abolish conservatism entirely.

Something happened to liberals during Donald Trump’s presidency. Not only did they go so mad after failing to impeach him that they tried to impeach him again after he was out of office, but Rep. Maxine Waters now wants him charged with “premeditated murder.”

In an appearance on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show, Waters told Reid that Trump “had advance planning” of the January 6 protest at the Capitol, which liberals are willfully misrepresenting as a “coup attempt” or “terrorist attack” or other nonsensical things. “There’s information that some of the planning came out of individuals working in his campaign.”

“As a matter of fact, he absolutely should be charged with premeditated murder because of the lives that were lost with this invasion, with this insurrection,” Waters says.

If anyone was “murdered,” it was Ashli Babbitt, the unarmed woman gunned down by Capitol Police. And it certainly wasn’t Donald Trump who killed her, planned or otherwise. President Trump urged the crowd to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard” — not murder anyone. And when he did that, multiple social media platforms suspended him, falsely accusing the President of inciting a riot.

By her own logic, Waters should be charged with “premeditated murder” for when an Antifa protester murdered a Trump supporter in Portland. Waters had urged her fans that if they saw a Trump supporter “in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

Liberals love to throw stones, which would be fine — if they didn’t live inside glass houses with windows that are already mostly broken.

Liberals are deranged. The School Board in leftist haven San Francisco has voted to remove the names of many figures from schools. This is the next step in liberals’ crusade against history — one that began by removing Confederate figures from public spaces in the name of “equality” and one that many predicted would lead to them deciding that Abraham Lincoln was unworthy of being honored. And those people were right.

The school board voted 6-1 to change the names of 44 schools in San Francisco. While some name removals — like Dianne Feinstein and other leftist politicians — are reasonable, the list of names also includes George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Abraham Lincoln. School Board members say the name changes are necessary to eliminate symbols that have a connection to America’s “racist past,” The Guardian reports. The goal is to do away with any names with any connection to slavery, oppression, racism, genocide, and other things.

According to the School Board, the figures whose names are being removed have “significantly diminished the opportunities of those amongst us to the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” — yes, even Abe Lincoln, who freed the slaves. Lincoln was listed for redaction because of his treatment of Native Americans.

“It’s a message to our families, our students and our community,” says Board member Mark Sanchez. “It’s not just symbolic. It’s a moral message.”

While Washington and Jefferson’s names were removed because they own slaves, the liberal Board members seem confused on others. The Board can’t figure out whether Roosevelt Middle School was named after Theodore or Franklin Delano. One student called the Board out for not even bothering to have a historian on the advisory committee. Via The Guardian:

“I support some of the schools being renamed, but there are a lot of schools that do not need to be renamed,” said one Lowell high school sophomore in public comment.

“There is a lot of historical negligence that happened because they do not have a historian on the advisory committee. On the Google sheet of the renaming committee they cite Wikipedia as a source. As a high school student at Lowell, I’m not even allowed to use Wikipedia as a source for my history papers, let alone to spend millions of dollars to rename a school that may not even need to be renamed.”

Feinstein is being removed, rather hilariously, because she replaced a Confederate flag that was vandalized during her tenure as Mayor. The school board wants to replace the names of Lincoln and Washington with Barack and Michelle Obama. Also included in a list of possible names is Richard Bradley, a vandal who dressed up as a Union soldier to steal a Confederate flag — the same one Feinstein replaced.

This is getting ridiculous. PC culture has progressed from “remove all symbols of the Confederacy” to “erase the history of our nation altogether.” Soon they’ll be demanding that Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, and possibly even Roosevelt be removed from Mount Rushmore and replaced with the Obamas and Reality Winner.

Prior to the election, CNN was able to keep its ratings up with fake news intended to incite those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. Every single story, every single day, seemed to be something negative and untrue about President Trump — and because of this, they were able to maintain decent (buut still not amazing) ratings. Now that the election’s over? The network is in real trouble.

Variety reports that Biden’s first week as President “may offer a portent of what the post-Trump era will be like for the network” — and it isn’t good, for them. According to the report,:

In the first week of the Biden administration, the AT&T-owned news channel saw the audiences that had been flooding into primetime recently drop precipitously on Jan. 25-29 compared with the highs of previous weeks. Meanwhile, rival Fox News Channel saw its own ratings only dip slightly after weeks of registering its own sharp declines.

In Biden’s first week, CNN saw its ratings tank by a whopping 44 percent, with the network struggling to maintain viewership among people ages 25-54 — a key demographic. MSNBC also has suffered losses since the election.\

One network seems immune to the “Biden Effect” — Fox News, which has seen a mild decline in numbers. In fact, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” was the “only program that didn’t see a downturn” according to the report.

As much as liberals attack Fox News and Tucker Carlson specifically, this shows that only one group of people watches the news to stay informed — and it’s not the folks on the Left, who abandon any semblance of wanting information to back their ideas the moment their news stops being something that can more accurately be described as hate porn.

The recent ratings are bad news for CNN and, to a lesser extent, MSNBC. But Fox News and alternative conservative networks like OANN and Newsmax are seeing a rise in viewership. The ratings wars may be brutal as the Biden presidency continues, but it’s possible we may see CNN slip even further into obscurity.

Ilhan Omar‘s political career may soon be dead in the water. In response to Democrats’ ridiculous efforts to remove Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments because she has shared some controversial opinions and facts that Democrats don’t like, Republicans took aim at someone on the Left who is actually dangerous — a member of “The Squad.”

Democrat Steny Hoyer issued the bizarre demand that Taylor Greene be removed from House Education and Labor Committee and the House Budget Committee assignments following a pile-on from his party and the media. Citing old videos in which Taylor Greene shared some controversial opinions, Democrats say she should be disqualified from any committee assignments. GOP leader Kevin McCarthy caved, telling Greene she must apologize or be removed from at least one committee. Democrats have also threatened to take the matter to the House floor, wasting taxpayer money on this ridiculous effort.

Fox News reports that Republicans have responded with their own efforts to remove an individual who is actually problematic from her committee assignments. Ilhan Omar, who is under investigation for allegedly marrying her own brother, should be removed “in light of conduct she has exhibited,” the proposed amendment says.

Omar has re anti semitic and anti-American remarks during her time in office, including accusing a Jewish ember of the House of being “all about the Benjamins” — because the “Jews only care about money” trope is for some reason popular with the Left. She issued a non-apology after she was called out for her actions:

Though she thanked her colleagues for  “educating [her] on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes,” Omar has shown no desire to change her hateful ways. It’s unclear if the effort to remove Omar from her assignments will be successful, but removing her seems to be a good step in that push for “unity” Joe Biden claims he wants.
