URGENT REMINDER: Why Donald Trump Battles The Fox News Machine…

update-1Given the current explosive development with Donald Trump most likely boycotting the Fox News Iowa debate, EVERYONE should remember the entire back story as we explained, researched and outlined it in September ’15.     ~ Also This UPDATE for recent context.

Anyone who is viewing the battle between Donald Trump and Fox News as a representative battle of thin-skinned ego is entirely missing the point.

Roger Ailestrump with hat

Trump is not just taking on the construct of progressive ideology that has undermined the essence of American exceptionalism; Trump is not just exposing the immense number of faux-conservatives in media and political punditry; Trump is not just allowing us to see the scope of anti-American interest; no, he’s taking on the very selfish foundation they’ve used to sell out our country. Heck, he’s taking on all the “Decepticons” simultaneously.

In many ways Fox’s Roger Ailes and Republican Mitch McConnell carry the same ideological character trait, deception. For McConnell his deceptive ways allow him to retain power inside the DC construct. For Roger Ailes manipulation benefits his media dominance and political interests.

Neither McConnell nor Ailes can actually be trusted. However, we are only just beginning to understand the enormity and scope of the previously hidden betrayal.

It all boils down to a very familiar problem. Would you rather rid yourself of the schemer, manipulator and deceiver who claims to be your friend – and as a consequence face a visible enemy in their stead. Or do you chose to be associated within the camp of a person you can never fully trust.

The 2014 re-election of Mitch McConnell was a case study in choosing between the lesser of these two evils. If you don’t re-elect him your team may not win control of the Senate; but if you do elect him your team may win control – but you’ll never be able to trust him to do what he says.

We are all witnessing the 2015 reality of McConnell’s untrustworthy legislative behavior; he lied to get re-elected, and he’s only working on the priorities of Tom Donohue, Wall Street, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Our Co-Dependent Behavior:

♦ If, in the spring of 2014, anyone had tried to convince the electorate that the National Republican Senatorial Committee would pay for racist attack ads, and pay for Democrats to vote in the Mississippi Senate Primary against a republican candidate, the same electorate would have said ‘you’re nuts’.

McConnell and Boehnertom donohue 4

♦ If, prior to the fall election of 2014, anyone had tried to convince the electorate that Mitch McConnell would NEVER repeal Obamacare, because his handlers wanted Obamacare to remain in place, the voting electorate would say “you’re nuts”.

♦ If, in the dawn of 2015, anyone had tried to convince the electorate the now Republican Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, would change the senate rules to pass Obama trade agreements with only 51 votes, destroying the construct of the Senate oversight simply to give Obama more power -because McConnell’s handlers wanted it- again more people would have said “you’re nuts”. Perhaps even the same people.

♦ If, in the summer of 2015, anyone had tried to convince the electorate that the RNC and DC-based GOPe, had constructed a specific and intentional plan to elect Jeb Bush with 20% of the voting base, those same voices say “you’re nuts”.

Some people just refuse to accept what is. The rest of us -who do accept- are called “nuts”…. or Whacko-birds, or Hobbits, or Crazies, or… well, you get the point.

trump brilliantThe bottom line is Donald Trump is advocating for us; he’s representing the interests of all of us who are sick and tired of being lied to and manipulated by the Mitch McConnells of the world. So while campaigning, he’s taking them head on.

What value lies within victory, if the reason for being victorious is open to interpretation? A fancy way of saying “bold contrasts, not pale pastels”. When Trump shows up to the White House, there won’t be anyone in DC who doesn’t know exactly why he’s there.

If victorious, Trump will carry the biggest and boldest mandate EVER.

Candidate Donald Trump has now taken enough positions for us to clearly identify that he is indeed our friend, and as a consequence their enemy. Just look at what he has exposed in the two months since he announced. He’s done this simply by putting sunlight on issues and taking firm stances that all others in/around the same issues have apparently lied about for years.

Donald Trump, a serious student of the entire decades long game, is waging a 360° war against the entire GOPe apparatus, on every single level of its construct. And yes, that also means the monolithic media empire which facilitates all of the aforementioned usurpations.

Donald Trump is campaigning against EVERY ADVERSE INTEREST to the U.S.A. This is the essential underpinning of the “Make America Great Again” campaign.

Those adverse interests are both outside and inside our borders. He’s intent on tearing down the machine, all of it. By now that should be obvious to everyone.

Candidate Jeb Bush attends Chamber of Commerce dinner with Fox's Rupert Murdoch and Valerie Jarrett (December 2014)

In that regard, Rupert Murdoch FOX owner is part of the problem. So too Roger Ailes Fox News President is also part of the problem…. again, their interests – i.e., elect Jeb Bush- are antithetical to those of a restored, strong, free and independent U.S.

Mitch McConnell, Rupert Murdoch, The RNC, Roger Ailes, Tom Donohue, Wall Street et al, are all part of the apparatus simultaneously being confronted.

Trump is talking about, and, well, actually he’s doing more than talking about it, he’s taking on BIG ideological entities that have embedded themselves inside the body politic.

It’s often a painful exhibition to watch a surgeon cut clear margins out of an infected patient. And it definitely ain’t pretty when you have to do it on a battlefield in the midst of an ideological war.

This is the backdrop for Donald Trump taking on Fox News, and as a consequence Rupert Murdoch through Roger Ailes and Murdoch’s princess, Megyn Kelly.

Just like exposing the real motivation behind the RNC, or Mitch McConnell, or the NRSC in 2014’s Mississippi primary, Trump is exposing the sordid and corrupt world of the U.S. legacy media.

However, better than merely exposing them, he’s taking them head-on.

Trump would rather face an enemy who genuinely opposes him, MSNBC and CNN, than deal with the likes of a enemy who puts on the mask of being favorable toward him while simultaneously working diligently to eliminate him. (Remember Brutus?)

Trump respects the honest opponent, he does not respect the dishonest manipulator. Obviously, a level of media dishonesty was dragged front and center, in front of 24 million viewers, during the Fox News RNC/GOP debate.

Megyn Kelly Debate

It was the severity of the dishonesty, the deceptive intent and the scope of the planning and forethought, that triggered the response. ENOUGH !

I mean c’mon, seriously. While initially many didn’t want to believe what we were saying, we saw the deceptive sneak attack coming a week before it took place. It was transparently obvious that Megyn ‘too-cute-by-half’ Kelly had a specific agenda she was intent on delivering. [ June 30th Warning To Donald Trump ]

Lil Miss Condescending was so pissed that Trump avoided her initial pre-debate set up on August 4th she took it out on Ted Cruz

As a consequence of the specific forethought, and after deciding it’s better to have an honest enemy, Mr. Trump is now in the position of tearing down the pillars of Roger Ailes creation. And, as evidence of Trumps’ strength therein, Roger Ailes’ responses reflect a reality that Ailes views this ENEMY, unlike any other enemy, because Trump holds Samson-like capabilities.

It’s not about Megyn Kelly per se’. It’s about taking the strongest most valuable part of Ailes organization, the one he has invested the most time, effort, energy and emotion with, and confronting that ‘golden goose’ first. Ailes would surely never respond the same way if it were a less valuable part of his business. Trump hits em’ where it hurts.

Appearances on CNN, MSNBC or the alphabets might seem antithetical to most GOP candidates who view Fox as a more direct channel to a specific audience. But Trump is saying he’d rather confront an honest opponent who he knows hates him, than walk into a dishonest interview unsure of their masked ‘angle’.

Trump is also showing the approach he would take if he is able to achieve victory and win the White House. Mitch McConnell will never be accepted as a representative leader, nor would John Boehner, neither could/would be trusted. Trump would dispatch their self-serving interests to the land of irrelevance and work around them.

Yes, that implies he’d use the bully pulpit against his own Republican leadership, if that was what’s needed to “Make America Great Again”. Prepare for it.

If the hierarchy within the republican party loses an election to Democrats it’s only a lost election; they are still there, and still comfortable even in the minority.

However, if the hierarchy within the republican party loses an election to Conservatives, they are out of a job.

Donald Trump’s greatest weapon is not his money, his wealth, or his keen and astute business acumen, those are all simply tools he’s developed over a lifetime. No, his greatest weapon against these ideological foes is something we shared on the very first day of his candidacy….

… US !

    Some people are suggesting that Fox will apologize somehow and Trump will be in the debate. I don’t believe that. Like a dog trainer, Trump needs them punished so that they don’t try anything again. He has to show he’s the top dog. People will respond to this favorably on an instinctual level, even as they tut-tut about it in public.

    Trump has about 24 hours to pull something together for broadcast on Thursday. I wonder what it will be.

  7. Ann Coulter specifically predicted a Trump “scandal” would be confected – by GOPe – just before Iowa. And here we are.

    As also predicted Trump is smashing through the barriers and in the process doing mortal wound harm to fox “news”. Their brand is entirely based on play acting being conservatives. When that is exposed as the lie it has always been they will freefall down the ratings. Leftists already hate them and when normal Americans turn on them – they’re gone.

    Trump’s killed all before him. Truly, he is the American Conan the Barbarian. Unbeatable.

      • My belief as well. Making a show with Lucifer as the principal is very revealing about the current stance of the broadcast corporations. Many, perhaps most, will dismiss this as trivial or irrelevant, but is this “The Shining City on a Hill.” A culture of decency and liberty is best attacked through a steady chipping away – an incessant reduction in standards,

    Murdoch & Ailes are both open border amnesty turds. Donald Trump scares the hell out of them. The hosts for the most part tread lightly on the subject being fearful of losing their jobs. Trump cuts right to the chase. Murdoch & Ailes are desperate to curtail the Trump phenomenon.

    Consider this info about Rupert Murdoch …

    “Rupert Murdoch is the co-chair of what is arguably one of the most powerful immigration lobbying firms in country, the Partnership for a New American Economy (PNAE).

    Murdoch, Australian born and a naturalized U.S. citizen, has become an outspoken advocate for immigration reform and mass legalization of the country’s undocumented immigrants, partnering with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in this cause. Whether Murdoch’s personal views will percolate through his network, or at least temper criticism on the airwaves of those who don’t share it, remains to be seen.

    This is what Murdoch wrote in 2014 : “When I learned that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor had lost his Republican primary, my heart sank. Not simply because I think he is an intelligent and talented member of Congress, or because I worry about the future of the Republican Party. Like others who want comprehensive immigration reform, I worried that Mr. Cantor’s loss would be misconstrued and make Congress reluctant to tackle this urgent need. That would be the wrong lesson and an undesirable national consequence of this single, local election result.”

    Plus is there any coincidence Bloomberg running as an independent became news this week as Trump shot up in the polls ?

    Mr. Trump has presented to the news networks what he is and what he does. He has also shown how he will negotiate on the domestic stage and the foreign stage. He compares himself to Mr. Reagan in how he has evolved.

    Not only did Mr. Reagan evolve, he also showed that he meant what he said when he said it (speaking of the world stage) and he followed through. Mr. Trump has shown that he can and will do the same thing.

I don’t trust any one of them at Fox any longer.

        Their star reporter MK tried to frame Donald as sexist in the first debate. Tried haughtily to paint him as being against women. Failed. Yet it seems like MK is more willing to partner with a misogynist, death cult supporter to achieve both her and the Network’s foul end’s. Who’s against women now? Fair and balanced has left the building. They have totally sold out. Not conservative, not patriotic! They are low!! Arnold! Calling Benedict Arnold!! Are you there?
        Who can predict what happens when arrogant, evil planners and doers fall when running with scissors.
        This is one of those moments in time that will keep coming back to produce damage to Fox and MK.

    You couldn’t be more wrong. Fox News has nearly served as his personal PR firm. He’s gotten more free air time there than anywhere else. He’s trying to bully from what he believes is a position of power. If Fox caves, then his numbers will soar and he’ll milk his “victory”. The truth is, he’s not in control of this scenario, and he’s not comfortable with it. He appears to be a spoiled brat having a hissy fit. He’s getting what he want…more free PR.

    “terrorization” ? Megyn Kelly is with the crisp and Bloods 😲


  17. I don’t buy it. Trump is going to abandon an opportunity to get his message out and leave his opponents to shine because he opposes Mitch McConnell and Murdoch? Sorry but this man isn’t that complex. Megyn Kelly pissed him off so he’s going to take his ball and go home, thinking he’s stealing the show. He was manipulated by a TV personality. What happens when Putin manipulates him by yanking his chain? WE get screwed.

    Our biggest problem isn’t immigrants though, or the muslims. It’s the NATIONAL DEBT and this government’s addiction to spending. You really want to put the king of debt in the chair to ignore the real threat to national security? Think this through people. Demand plans for our real problems, not the stupid one’s the TV is telling us to focus on.


    • Fox News and Google have invited three YouTube personalities to ask questions at the Jan. 28 GOP debate — including a Muslim advocate who describes Donald Trump as a bigot and who visually portrayed him as being in agreement with national socialist Adolf Hitler. Before this was announced, they kept hinting at the tricks up their sleeves. This was about making him look bad with attack questions to Trump only and softballs to the rest of them.

Takes a real man to put it all on the line as Trump has done. I’ll bet more watch Trump on CNN than watch foxnews with their guests a muslim and an illegal asking questions.

I never cared for the way they manipulated public sentiment to try and push somebody down our throats that we didn’t really trust or want, and Jeb Bush is one of them. I won’t be watching the debate! Looking forward to Trump’s press release that quashes Fox News’ decepticon dream of manipulating this election to their benefit. We, the People (the working stiffs of this country) need a President that cares about US (the real definition behind these United States). We need Donald Trump!


  22. archer52 says:

    If by chance the censors here killed out my last posts, here is what I was worried about when Trump backed out.

    He loses the narrative.

    He loses sucking the O2 out of the room so Jeb and the rest can’t get traction (which I am glad he does! I hate Jeb and the rest of the establishment whiners).

    Worse, he gives people things to hit him with. The only person who can hurt Trump is Trump.
    Truth is, he has been so contradictory in his statements and positions, it is a rich ore to mine.

    (To the people who think I’m trolling. This is like drafting the best college QB into the NFL, being a big fan, but then realizing you need to actually train him up because the game is different here- but are afraid to say so because you spent some much time talking about how perfect he is. You get stuck. )

    And Patterico does not hesitate.

    This was 2012, back when Donald liked Megyn.


    “…“We’re not seeing a lot of courage here, are we? Not lots of courage!” said Donald Trump to Megyn Kelly in 2012. He was talking about candidates like Mitt Romney who didn’t want to show up to a debate moderated by Donald Trump. “You know, these Republicans are supposed to be brave.”


    It gets better: he tells Megyn Kelly that she is a great debate moderator, and that he could never do a better job at moderating a debate than her. (Skip ahead to 2:29.)

    MEGYN KELLY: [with a mock air of taking offense]: Do you really think you’re a better moderator than I am?
    TRUMP: No, I could never beat you. That wouldn’t even be close. That would be no contest. You have done a great job, by the way. And I mean it.
    MEGYN KELLY: Thank you. I’m glad we cleared that up.

    And he means it.

        I admit most of Trump’s strategy would confuse me for a few days after it happened. Not so with this move, I saw this before he made the play. Pat on the back goes here.

        The Donald did not “back out” he Blitzed the Faux opposition. That is the he drove forward past the opposition surrounding it fixing it in place to starve. Timing is everything and at this point the Faux opposition is suffering from PTSD stuck in denial mode and their support and logistics chain in disarray being weak, ill and battle damaged.

        Now is the time to strike rendering the Faux opposition irrelevant to the larger campaign of defeating the transnationalists and putting in place a Great America Again.

        That was kind of militaristic, the rules changed in WWII. How about move quotes, “there is no spoon”.

        Faux News was the last form of the Fourth Estate that ruled from 1887-2016, RIP. Long live the modern commons, the Vulgarians and their leader Donaldus Magnus.
