Ralph Peters quits Fox News ‘propaganda machine’ with epic rant affirming the Steele dossier

Published

on

A retired military intelligence expert who specialized in the Soviet Union has quit his job as a Fox News contributor over the shame he feels being associated with the network.

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (US Army, ret.) denounced Fox News in an email to colleagues, which was obtained by Buzzfeed.

“Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to ‘support and defend the Constitution,’ and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform,” he reminded. “Today, I feel that Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers.”

“Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association,” Peters noted. “Now I am ashamed.”

“In my view, Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration,” he continued. “When prime-time hosts–who have never served our country in any capacity–dismiss facts and empirical reality to launch profoundly dishonest assaults on the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the intelligence community (in which I served) and, not least, a model public servant and genuine war hero such as Robert Mueller–all the while scaremongering with lurid warnings of ‘deep-state’ machinations– I cannot be part of the same organization, even at a remove.”

“To me, Fox News is now wittingly harming our system of government for profit,” he concluded.

The former Foreign Area Officer also referenced his specialization in the former Soviet Union.

“As an intelligence professional, I can tell you that the Steele dossier rings true–that’s how the Russians do things,” he noted. “The result is that we have an American president who is terrified of his counterpart in Moscow.”

Fox News responded in a statement: “Ralph Peters is entitled to his opinion despite the fact that he’s choosing to use it as a weapon in order to gain attention. We are extremely proud of our top-rated primetime hosts and all of our opinion programing.”

House Judiciary received classified evidence from House Intel just prior to impeachment markup

Published

on

Hours before the House Judiciary Committee began debating the articles of impeachment into President Donald Trump, the committee received new, classified evidence.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) had given the administration a Wednesday deadline to declassify the evidence, but Vice President Mike Pence's office ignored the deadline, so Schiff sent the evidence anyway.

At issue is a "supplemental submission" from Jennifer Williams, the special advisor for Europe and Russia in Pence's office.

The document contains information about a Sept. 18, 2019 phone call between pence and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Trump complained about Obama’s Hanukkah party — yet did it even worse himself

Published

on

President Donald Trump held the official White House Hanukkah party weeks before the holiday was slated to begin on Dec. 22.

Ironically, however, in 2011, Trump attacked President Barack Obama for holding an early Hanukkah party because he would be in Hawaii for the family's annual Christmas celebration.

"Why was the Hanukah celebration held in the White House two weeks early? @BarackObama wants to vacation in Hawaii in late December. Sad," Trump tweeted.

Just a few years later when it was his turn to hold a White House Hanukkah party, the goy-in-chief did it even earlier than Obama. In 2011, Obama held his party one week before the "eight crazy nights" began. Trump's party is 11 days out from Hanukkah. Trump lit the candles anyway.

President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison, but he's seeking a reduction in his sentence according to a recent court filing.

"Reducing the Court's previously imposed 36 month term of imprisonment, or, in the alternative, reducing it to a term of home confinement, coupled with a community service," the documents requested.

While Cohen cooperated with investigators, he didn't do so immediately, instead he remained loyal to his former client. After it became clear that Cohen was being thrown under the bus, however, he began to cooperate with investigators.
