The ¨do nothing¨ Congress gets its name because they don't do what you socialist, tax-grabbing, money wasting crooks want them to.
Too fking bad, huh? Thank God for checks and balances, eh ¨dumbo¨?
Then tell me what it is that you do??? You are against all things that most Americans are for... like equal pay, increasing the minimum wage, Immigration, jobs bill, so what friggin good are they except as a road block and the recovery from their last eight years of bungling everything they touched.

The million or so viewers who remain fiercely loyal to the network are not, for the most part, and as some liberals still imagine, naïve swing voters who stumble onto Fox News under the delusion it’s a bona fide news channel and then are brainwashed by Ailes’s talking points into becoming climate-change deniers. They arrive at the channel as proud, self-selected citizens of Fox Nation and are unlikely to defect from the channel or its politics until death do them part.(As Sherman writes,“Ailes’s audience seldom watches anything” on television but Fox News.) Hard as it may be to fathom, Fox Nation is even more monochromatically white than the GOP is, let alone the American nation. Two percent of Mitt Romney’s voters were black. According to new Nielsen data, only 1.1 percent of Fox News’s prime-time viewership is (as opposed to 25 percent for MSNBC, 14 percent for CNN, and an average of roughly 12 percent for the three broadcast networks’ evening news programs).

A television and film producer’s first-person account of his mistaken arrest by Beverly Hills police has attracted widespread attention, KTLA-TV reported on Tuesday.

Charles Belk’s story has been shared just under 30,000 times since being posted on his Facebook page on Saturday. According to his post, Belk was walking to his car on La Cienega Boulevard when he was detained and ordered to sit on the curb.

A picture accompanying the post shows Belk seated and handcuffed with two officers standing near him. Belk stated that six police cars were near him at the time.

“Within an hour, I was transported to the Beverly Hills Police Headquarters, photographed, finger printed and put under a $100,000 bail and accused of armed bank robbery and accessory to robbery of a Citibank,” he wrote.“Within an evening, I was wrongly arrested, locked up, denied a phone call, denied explanation of charges against me, denied ever being read my rights, denied being able to speak to my lawyer for a lengthy time, and denied being told that my car had been impounded…..All because I was mis-indentified as the wrong ‘tall, bald head, black male,’…‘fitting the description.’”

According to files compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the founder of the world’s largest Christian television network financed his endeavor with the assistance of numerous international criminal organizations.

Documents obtained by MuckRock show that the FBI was investigating Trinity Broadcasting Network and its founder, Paul Crouch, for being in communication with the infamous Bronx mafia figure, Vincent Gigante, with regards to a “narcotics transfer of funds,” which is how the FBI classifies money-laundering.

In another document, Crouch is listed alongside Reverend Earl Paulk and Oral Roberts as “anti-Semitic white supremacists [who] were supposedly receiving funds from the [Palestinian Liberation Organization] to ‘run guns’” via an “Islamic Education Center” in Baltimore, Maryland. Both of these investigations were tagged as relating to “financial flow” involving narcotics.

Crouch and the Tustin, California-based Trinity Broadcasting Network he founded have come under fire in the past for “the prosperity gospel” that is preached on the network, which promises immediate material rewards to viewers who donate generously.

Stop Beating a Dead Fox

The conservative news channel’s only real power is in riling up liberals, who by this point should know better.

....The most interesting news about Fox News is that for some years now it has been damaging the right far more than the left. As a pair of political analysts wrote at Reuters last year,“When the mainstream media reigned supreme, between 1952 and 1988, Republicans won seven out of the ten presidential elections,” but since 1992, when “conservative media began to flourish”(first with Rush Limbaugh’s ascendancy, then with Fox), Democrats have won the popular vote five out of six times. You’d think they’d be well advised to leave Fox News to its own devices so that it can continue to shoot its own party in the foot.

Not near as bad as Bush chopping fire wood for his Texas ranch while thousands of American troops were being killed in his unprovoked war in Iraq. I don't remember any right wing morons whining about that, do you?

You're right about that, who needs congress. Those do-nothing obstructionist Republicans should just stay out of the way while Obama does their job.

Hmm, hadn't heard about that but TBN has been plagued by scandals both rumored and real.

TBN owns Orlando's Holy Land Experience, a Christ centered theme park that is not as schmaltzy as it could have been if Crouch's wife had been in on the development.

Uh hum. What that means zombie is:
1 - instead of addressing the corruption and potentially criminal acts, you simply attack the source
2 - the liberal media will not report on issues when the corruption is committed by fellow liberals
3 - liberals condone corruption
You can read the signed court document on the Judicial Watch website, you corrupt idiot.
LOL. You DO realize that Judicial Watch is a conservative group that quotes FOX News as their source don't you? IF you have a link to the court document and Thomas Kane's declaration, provide it.

I wish I had a dollar for everytime you have attacked a liberal source. Fact is, if you only have ONE source reporting something, it's because that source doesn't have all the facts and is distorting the truth. THAT is a Fox stategy. Anyone who has visited the Judicial Watch website knows that they quote FOX NEWS as their source of information. It's comical.

1. Joe gets up at zero dark thirty and hits the road to work 12-14 hours shifts so people like you receive benefits you have never worked for. Joe subsidies your laziness with his hard work. Joe also served his country overseas and is a member of a local church which believes in community charity, he volunteers as a firefighters in his rural community to keep others safe without pay. Joe often helps disadvantaged youth whose liberal irresponsible parents disregard these children as surrogate wards of the state and the local school system.
2. Joe's medical benefits for him and his family cost him over 2200.00 a month because Joe pays for his premiums out of his own pocket so people like you get free medical care and benefits that Joe and his family will never use or benefit from in any way.
3. Joe has always worked either for an employer or as self-employed he has never once drawn a unemployment check and has no plans to do so in the future.
4. I don't use the subway but I do carpool with a group to save on fuel and wear and tear on vehicles we have one young man who is starting out in life and his car isn't very reliable no one says a word about his turn to drive because he always pays his way.
5. No Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac for me the only mortgages I've ever had was directly between the bank and me I never even used the VA benefits on FHA loans.
Joe is a conservative who was taught as a young man than your personal actions and choices are what builds character and your future. Joe is responsible, hard working American, married raised 2 kids who are both graduates of college. Joe is the silent majority and Joe has had enough of the
blatant takeover of this country by radical liberalism.
Welcome to the thread Joe. You are one of the respectable people here.

I see you met one of the nasty old foaming at the mouth rabid dishonest commies who lives here named Grey Ghost.

He will simply hurl insults your way and obfuscate like a typical radical juvenile leftwinger.
