Creating “Plausible Deniability” – Report: Fox News Reconsidering Advocacy Position For Marco Rubio’s Candidacy?…

Fox News’ primary agenda driver, Rupert Murdoch, was conspicuously absent from commentary following the last GOP debate, staged cage fight. It was the only debate where Murdoch did not announce Marco Rubio the winner.

roger-ailesA few days later the New York Times embarrassed Fox News by revealing the corporate media agenda, including secret meetings with DC politicians and media, to advance Marco Rubio’s gang-of-eight proposals and benefit their ideological immigration agenda (outlined below).

Both owner Rupert Murdoch and Fox executive President Roger Ailes have been positioning the network to do as much damage to Rubio’s opponent Donald Trump as possible for the past 8 months. Fox News political executive director, Bill Sammons, is the father of Marco Rubio’s national spokesperson, Brooke Sammon. The agenda has been transparent from the outset.

However, today a report surfaces where Roger Ailes is reportedly reconsidering the media conglomerate’s position.

[…] According to three Fox sources, Fox chief Roger Ailes has told people he’s lost confidence in Rubio’s ability to win (link).

NOT SO FAST – The timing, just hours before the network broadcasts yet another attack debate favorable to Rubio, reeks of a corporate entity trying to position themselves with plausible deniability; and isolate themselves from the growing backlash of an audience who have woken up to the manipulative intents of the network.

Rupert MurdochThe owner of Fox News, Rupert Murdoch has been a staunch advocate for Marco Rubio for several years.  Murdoch leveraged his entire news apparatus, and his most important and visible investment, Megyn Kelly, to advocate on behalf of the comprehensive immigration tool.

Not coincidentally, Megyn Kelly signed a book deal with another of Ruperts’ business interests, Harper Collins books. Ms. Kelly’s book deal is worth somewhere north of $5 million, and many observers are putting the deal around $10 million. Quite a beneficial backdoor payday for Ms. Kelly from her boss, Rupert Murdoch.

However, Murdoch’s manipulative agenda is more visibly found in his advocacy for Senator Marco Rubio. Observers will note almost no debate discussion on the advocacy of Rubio for the Trans-Pacific trade deal (TPP), or comprehensive immigration reform. However, it should not come as a surprise, the head of Fox News even structured media coverage on behalf of Rubio during the Gang-of-Eight legislative fiasco in 2013.

Mr. Murdoch, who is also leading the executive decision-making on Fox programming, also contracts pollster Frank Luntz to appear on Fox News broadcasting during the 2016 election cycle.

[…] since June, Murdoch has been attending Ailes’s daily executive meeting held on the second floor of Fox headquarters. The secretive afternoon gathering in Ailes’s conference room is attended by about a half-dozen of the network’s most senior lieutenants. It’s where some of the most sensitive decisions about running the channel are discussed. (link)

Frank Luntz has sub-contracts with Marco Rubio and a long-term relationship with Rubio going back to the Freshman Senator’s time in the Florida Legislature. Rubio alone has paid Luntz $350,000+

Frank Luntz focus groups regularly find Marco Rubio as the winner of debate and opinion programming.

The executive in charge of Fox News debate programming, debate questioning and debate structure is Bill Sammon. (circled below)

Rubio debate 2

brooke sammon The Washington Post has an outline describing how Bill Sammon runs the entire show at Fox regarding debates; and how he is the person who Chris Stirewalt, Megyn Kelly, Chris Wallace and Brett Baier directly report to for all debate issues, construction, and question organization.

In essence, Bill Sammon runs the show.

Bill Sammon’s daughter is Brooke Sammon who is the press secretary for Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign.

A generally interested observer would consider this a conflict of interest worthy of full disclosure. However, none of the above have ever been publicly disclosed prior to the media presentation by any Fox entity.

Additionally, it has now surfaced what approach Megyn Kelly was going to take when questioning Donald Trump at the Fox News debate he skipped prior to the Iowa Caucus.

During a television interview with Steven Colbert Kelly shared:

“[Trump] recently said that his supporters are so devoted to him that they could go in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and he wouldn’t lose a single voter. In response to which, I was going to ask him, ‘Were you talking about me?'”

Megyn Kelly Debate

Megyn Kelly tweet Stirewalt

During the Fox Business News debate several political junkies noted a rather curious omission: Senator Marco Rubio was never questioned about the 2013 Senate Gang-of-Eight bill and his stance on Comprehensive Immigration Reform. In fact, if you were to review the debate substance you’d note that candidate Rubio wasn’t directly questioned about his immigration positions at all.

It is not disconnected that during the 2013/2014 Gang-of-Eight immigration constructs, Fox News was an active participant in the promotion of the immigration reform proposals. In order to facilitate the congressional immigration intent Fox launched a previously unknown pro-amnesty propaganda blitz to support senate immigration bill.

What follows below is an evidenced expose’ of their agenda.

♦ It was less than a year ago when Mickey Kaus was chastised by Tucker Carlson, a Fox Contributor, for writing an article in the Daily Caller outlining the relationship between Rupert Murdoch, his company Fox News, the talking heads under his control and authority, and Murdoch’s request for pro-amnesty propaganda to be broadcast on the network.

Carlson took down the article from the Daily Caller, and subsequently Mickey Kaus quit in disgust over the agenda-driven editorial decision. Apparently some things are just too sensitive for sunlight and exposure.

What Mickey Kaus outlined was a pattern within Fox to push immigration reform and included a first person excerpt between David Axelrod and Rupert Murdoch:

On page 424 of his recent memoir, Obama’s former top strategist David Axelrod describes running into Fox chieftain (and immigration amnesty supporter) Rupert Murdoch at a dinner in the fall of 2010:

During the dinner, Murdoch, who was seated beside me, insisted that the president had to move on immigration reform. ….

“But the solution has to be comprehensive,” I said. “We can’t just attack a piece of the immigration problem. And you know, there’s one big thing that you can do to help, and that is to keep your cable network from stoking the nativism that keeps us from solving this.” [Emphasis added] (link)

Kaus goes on to outline how Fox News followed the plan and conspicuously avoided any mention of the crafting: “in the spring of 2013 when the “Gang of 8” amnesty bill snuck through the Senate“. Mickey uses a historical timeline, day-by-day story leads, showing how Fox was intentionally NOT COVERING the story (see here).

GOP gang of 8

♦ However, even before Kaus discovered -and outlined- proof of what his research into Fox revealed there was a prior article written by Ryan Lizza in The New Yorker Magazine [June 2013] which was even more revealing:

New Yorker 2013 – […] Fox News has notably changed its tone since the election. A Democratic policy staffer who worked on the issue in 2007 and has helped write the current bill said, “NumbersUSA and FAIR”—two groups that want to dramatically limit immigration—“managed to convince Fox News back then to be their twenty-four-hour news channel of the anti-immigrant point of view. Fox has now totally bought in to the idea that we just need to figure something out.”

Rush Limbaugh, who fiercely opposes the bill, has come to sound resigned. “I don’t know if there’s any stopping this,” he said on January 28th, the day the Gang held the press conference announcing its framework for the legislation. “It’s up to me and Fox News, and I don’t think Fox News is that invested in this.”

McCain told me, “Rupert Murdoch is a strong supporter of immigration reform, and Roger Ailes is, too.” Murdoch is the chairman and C.E.O. of News Corp., which owns Fox, and Ailes is Fox News’s president.

McCain said that he, Graham, Rubio, and others also have talked privately to top hosts at Fox, including Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Neil Cavuto, who are now relatively sympathetic to the Gang’s proposed bill. Hannity voiced support for a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, which he previously dismissed as “amnesty,” on the day after the 2012 election. “God bless Fox,” Graham said. “Last time, it was ‘amnesty’ every fifteen seconds.” He said that the change was important for his reelection, because “eighty per cent of people in my primary get their news from Fox.” He added that the network has “allowed critics to come forward, but it’s been so much better.” (link)

So there’s a trio of GOPe Republicans in the so-called Gang of Eight huddled with leading figures at Fox News Channel. A few days later Bill O’Reilly interviews Marco Rubio and urges the Senator to come to him if anyone opposes the proposal.

♦ As you watch this segment in retrospect, with the information you now possess, consider that both Bill O’Reilly and Marco Rubio have pre-discussed the entire topic and worked out exactly what the framework of questions and answers would be:

Rupert Murdoch, Wall Street, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the entire GOPe apparatus -including House Speaker Paul Ryan- are 100% behind comprehensive immigration reform to include amnesty.

Now, lets contrast this historic information against the backdrop new information within the republican debates. There is a particular clarity that resonates, no?

grubering us 2

Few people know how close we came to seeing this immigration usurpation actually come to fruition as law. Our nation was literally a few hours away from fundamental change.

There is an incredible story to be told of two unheralded heroes named Zach Werrell and Gray Delany, who, together with representative Dave Brat of Virginia, fundamentally saved the construct of the U.S. as we know it. And that is not even the slightest bit of exaggeration. Without them, there wouldn’t even be a Donald Trump campaign today.

The he-said, he-said, between presidential candidates Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Ted Cruz provides an opportunity to highlight just how close passage of Amnesty law was in 2014.

cruz rubio Lee immigration

The senate “Gang of Eight” comprehensive immigration reform bill, which included amnesty legislation was not blocked by Ted Cruz nor Marco Rubio – it specifically passed the senate because of them, not despite them.

A very insightful PBS documentary “The Immigration Battle” lays out exactly what took place during the 2013/2014 legislative time frame. If you have not watched the documentary I would strongly recommend you do so, it is profoundly enlightening.

The documentary walks you through a timeline explaining exactly who was doing what at the times discussed.

Here’s the trailer:

Watch Full Documentary – HERE

After the Senate passed the comprehensive immigration reform bill, the activity shifted to the House of Representatives. Paul Ryan was part of the team supporting passage.

Eventually, against ever increasing pressure from President Obama’s bully pulpit, it came to a moment in the House (June 2014) where Speaker John Boehner was going to take up a vote on the Senate Bill.

Speaker Boehner, Paul Ryan and a few other close insiders had been holding secret meetings discussing support for the bill. On Friday June 6th 2014 Boehner recognized there was now enough support for passage – he also knew it was going to be controversial.

Boehner - Cantor- McCarthy - House-GOP-leaders-

Boehner asked Kevin McCarthy (House Majority Whip) to whip the vote and get a confirmed vote count on Monday June 9th 2014. Unbeknownst to both GOP and DEM rank-and-file membership Boehner, Ryan and Eric Cantor already knew they had the votes for passage – the request to McCarthy was merely to confirm.

Speaker John Boehner was planning to schedule the vote for Thursday June 12th or Friday June 13th the consideration on either date circled around political benefit through the media: Was it better to celebrate, if so Thursday -or- was it better to pass and get out of dodge, if so Friday.

So the GOP House Members were officially whipped on Monday June 9th. The results confirmed what John Boehner and Paul Ryan already knew – They had enough votes to pass it.

On Tuesday June 10th Speaker Boehner, Eric Cantor (Majority Leader) and Kevin McCarthy (Majority Whip) had lunch together discussing timing the vote Thursday night or Friday Morning.

However, later that same night the results from the 2014 Virginia primary showed an unknown conservative outsider, Dave Brat, had defeated (primaried) Eric Cantor. At 7:00pm Tuesday night the first word went out that Cantor had lost.

cantor vs bratBoehner, McCarthy and Cantor were STUNNED beyond belief.

The next day, Wednesday June 11th, the House of Representatives was also in a state of shock – Almost the entire reason for the defeat was the controversial immigration position of Cantor.

Immediately panicked GOP congresscritters were calling Kevin McCarthy and revoking their previous (2 days earlier) positions of support for the bill. By lunchtime Wednesday June 11th it was obvious the Immigration Bill was NOW DEAD in the House.

That’s how close it was. Literally within hours of a vote for passage.

Amnesty didn’t die because of Senator Ted Cruz or anything he did or didn’t do. The gang of eight bill had already passed the senate.

Amnesty died exclusively because candidate Dave Brat beat House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Period.

    Amnesty will never be granted, the dog and pony show that was the gang of eight was specifically designed to give false hope to the basically slave labor force that is in the United States. Eric Cantor’s defeat was planned by the GOPe, there are no accidents at that level of politics.

    The difference between Trump, and Waterboy Rubio/Cruz, is that Trump plans to kick that labor force out out of the country. This would effectively replace that slave labor with Americans. Trump has always held the position that America is for Americans.

      That (unfair pricing aspect) is a major peeve of mine with these sorry insurance companies. I had to get an MRI on my foot a few years ago, and already had the sky high deductible. Knowing I had to pay for the MRI up front, I called Humana (boo hiss) to find out what were the usual & customary rates in my area so I would know how much money to bring. They said they couldn’t tell me what that might be – like it was confidential with the providers. So I called my local hospital to ask what one would cost – they wouldn’t tell me either, partially because Humana might pay them a different rate depending on the plan (or the wind, or planetary alignments). I finally got the lady to give me a ballpark figure, and guess what? – Humana later approved a HIGHER dollar amount for the hospital than had even been quoted to me!

      American Express & I paid everything for my foot fracture, and Humana never paid a dime since i didnt quite reach the deductibje. I’m still paying $50 monthly for the bone stimulator (it took me 9 months to heal without having surgery – Jones Fractures are nasty things). All Humana did was demand the doctor charge less than he billed but it probably would have been cheaper for me to have just been a “cash” patient. And that was before Obamacare really kicked in with a vengeance! God bless Donald Trump for addressing this unfair pricing aspect of the healthcare industry!

    It would be up to Trump to negotiate solutions to the issues that divide.

    Donald will have to take the lumps out.

    Those are two rational moves that are win-win for each. Either would be great for America.

      If Trump was an insincere person, and would say okay, just to fire Cruz from the VP immediately after his nomination, then fine. ( and it would be no more than the lying scum Cruz deserves!)

      But Trump is running as a truth teller, so that would not work.

      There is no evidence that Trump wants to eliminate or punish the donor class or its progeny. Don’t project onto him your view of the needed outcome. He has positions that he believes will benefit the country and he has put himself into good negotiating position. He hasn’t suggested overthrowing or eliminating the corrupt media or GOPe. He is bargaining for what he believes will create prosperity. I’m for taking this road and seeing where it goes even if it stops at some needed reform. Trump did not envision the movement that has developed when he started the campaign. And I support him and this doesn’t diminish his strategic brilliance and tactical adeptness. Patience and steeliness are needed.

    • Bull, the problem with move #1 is that Cruz is a liar and a cheat, and he’ll still be a liar and a cheat 8 years from now.

      Why would Trump want someone who is not an NBC as a running mate? Trump has already said the dems are filing lawsuits against Cruz’ eligibility. Plus, Cruz is a snake.

      Personally, I don’t know why people feel that just because someone ran for president and lose, they should get a consolation prize… There is a whole world of people out there.

  19. Bill O’Reilly has been openly indignant and pugnacious with Trump regarding deportation, lining up perfectly with his boss, Rupert. Perhaps Bill should have spent more positive time with his children whom he just lost custody of with his ex-wife, rather than defending the rights of illegal immigrant children.

        I don’t know if many of the people here have watched the 2005 movie, V for Vendetta, but this called to mind the exchange between two employees of one of the ‘news’ channels from that movie:

        “Patricia: ‘You think people will buy this?’

        Dascomb: ‘Well, why not? This is the BTN. Our job is to report the news, not fabricate it. That’s the government’s job’.”

        and of course, thinking of that movie reminded me of this line, too:

        “V: People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.”

  23. “The senate “Gang of Eight” comprehensive immigration reform bill, which included amnesty legislation was not blocked by Ted Cruz nor Marco Rubio – it specifically passed the senate because of them, not despite them.”

    This exactly why any stance Cruz pretends to take against amnesty only proves what a fraud he really is.

    Cruz is as much of a bona fide “anti-establishment” politician as Rubio.

      Exactly. The same thing with his vote on TPP. He voted for it in the cloture vote, then he turned around and played “astounded” that McConnell betrayed him with dirty tricks. So, Teddy starts getting attacked by his supporters and he then votes against the bill. Too late, because he got it through with the cloture vote and that is what matters. He also voted for the Iran Deal! Enough said on Pastor Teddy.

        I totally agree and this is what the globalists/establishment fears most of all – that we the people unify against them.

        It’s why they support chit like Black Lives Matter. It’s why the establishment mouthpieces have been screaming, ‘kkk!’ and ‘racist!’ for two days. Undeniable that that sort of stuff works on a segment of the black/minority population, but it’s so obviously bullchit that it ends up disgusting another segment of the black/minority population. Basically, they’ve figured out how they’ve been played for so long via the democrat race card, and hearing the GOPe start pulling it is only going to draw more to Trump.

        The globalists/establishment will be defeated, by AMERICANS who finally unify against our common enemy, the globalists/establishment.

        Trump brings that kind of unity – it’s another reason the globalists/establishment are frantic to get rid of him, and thereby, render us again voiceless.

        Wow I really despise the globalists/establishment. They’re evil.

    “Ailes was already concerned about Rubio’s lackluster performance in GOP primaries and caucuses, winning only one contest among the 15 that have been held. But the more proximate cause for the flip was an embarrassing New York Times article revealing that Rubio and Ailes had a secret dinner meeting in 2013 during which the Florida senator successfully lobbied the Fox News chief to throw his support behind the “Gang of 8” comprehensive immigration-reform bill. “Roger hates seeing his name in print,” a longtime Ailes associate told me. “He was appalled the dinner was reported,” the source said”

    HE was appalled the dinner was reported? I’ve got news for ya Ailes, the AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE APPALLED that elitist media money works behind the backs of the American people to destroy their country. What absolute gall

    This is getting outrageous. I’ve got the TV on in the background & all I hear is political commercials linking Trump to the KKK, one after another. Just now a commercial came on with Rubio, saying he’s the leader of the Reagan voters children & he’ll lead them to the promised land or some nonsense

    This bull**** is getting out of control. Our “media” & political “leaders” are completely out of control & in open revolt against we the people. It’s like some Orwellian movie being played out

    I also do not think Greta is in on this as she is in Washington and runs a pretty close show, and can be tough, but fair. I ALMOST THINK she is above this. Wish they had considered her as a moderator. I admit, I turned FOX on tonight as most of her show was the interview with Melania Trump. Turned it off when the show was over.

    So Trump friends…this is a game the media is still playing. Don’t let your guard down.

    I think the GOPe finally realize that not only is the Presidential race in question…but the downstream races are now also in jeopardy. I think they better think long and deep.

    Why are they so entrenched ? I wonder how much “dirt” the Trump organization has on these media people and politicians? Bet they are scared shitless and are worried they may be doing a perp walk in the not too distant future.
