Hannity Fox and Russian Connection


Has Sean Hannity and Fox News Network and Fox Business Network been   compromised by the Russians? Has Hannity’s greed and quest for power entangled him in a web of deception? Has Fox provided the platform for Hannity to collude with the Russians? Someone said, I think it was James Clapper, that people can unknowingly be compromised. They can be colluding and cooperating with a foreign agency without being aware of what they are doing.

In the case of Hannity, I think he is fully aware of what he is doing. Question is, when did he realize that he had become entangled in a web of deception? When did he realize he was so compromised that he felt he had no alternative except to try any means necessary to deflect attention away from Trump and his Russian connection. Deflecting attention from Trump, provided cover of sort for his involvement in the Trump campaign and administration. He often bragged about his access to Trump during the campaign and his continued access to Trump once Trump became President. He often spoke about giving President Trump advice. Question is, what has Trump told Hannity that Mueller might be interested in? Should Mueller and his team have a conversation with Hannity and other Fox folks? The public needs to know exactly what is the connection between Fox, Hannity and the Trump administration. Hannity got his self in this quagmire by trying to be someone important. He often flexes his muscles and those of Fox to intimidate politicians, democrats and Republicans. He threatens to run campaigns against those who went against his wishes and demands.

The Republican Party created today’s Sean Hannity and Donald Trump. Republicans thought they could use Hannity and fox to get elected. Once elected, they thought Hannity would ride away in the sunset. They never dreamed he would demand payback for him supporting their campaigns. Wrong! There is a terrible and expensive price to pay for his support.

Hannity, using the Fox Propaganda machine has hijacked the minds of millions of Republican voters. He uses the logic not only of Goebbels, but Hans Fritzsche as well. Fritz was Hitler’s Radio Propaganda Chief. According to sources, (AZ quotes) Fritzsche, by manipulating the truth goaded German public opinion into frenzied support of the regime and anesthetized the independent judgment of the population so that they did without question their masters’ bidding. Joseph Goebbels said there is no need for propaganda to be rich in intellectual content. There is little difference in those who blindly followed the logic of the Nazi propaganda machine and those following the Trump Propaganda machine headed by Sean Hannity on the Fox Network Platform.

Fox in the Hen House.


Folks, it is time to take a really good look at the Trump Fox connection. At first glance the connection may seem quite innocent. However, if you look at the history of connections between the media and a ruling government, Hitler, and the Third Reich and Germany come to mind. The similarities between how Hitler and his propaganda machine and how Trump’s propaganda machine operates, leaves little to one’s imagination. Hitler had his propaganda Minister-a fellow called Joseph Goebbels. Trump has his Propaganda Minister, Sean Hannity. Hitler had his Propaganda Platform. Trump has his propaganda machine. Fox and company. People are paying too little attention to how far the tentacles of the Trump Propaganda machine reaches, mainly through the Fox Network. This I did not realize until, in my travels, I surfed the radio stations in several States and was surprised at the number of Stations affiliated with Fox in some form or fashion. These stations feed listeners a heavy dose of Hannity several hours per day. There is the study beat of the Trump doctrine. Of course, those too ignorant to question what is being broadcasted are blindly led into the abyss of Trumpism. I must remind you that many people feel as Trump does about many social issues but are careful not to allow these feelings to surface, that is until Trump made it fashionable to make one’s true feelings known, no matter the consequence.

As with Hitler, Trump has created a boogieman. Trump is doing the same thing. He said he was going to rebuild our military. Hitler said the same thing. He said he was going to create jobs. Hitler said the same thing. Hitler said Germany was being taken advantage of by other nations, Trumps says the same thing about America. Hitler said prior German officials made bad deals with other nations. Trump says the same thing about prior US officials. The parallel between the two is alarming. Both are using the same appeal to the people, and the people are using the same logical to accept what they are being told without any questions. This is scary. How in the world have so many people been so easily led? What causes people to see Trump as some kind of Savior and the answer to all of their questions and problems? Many Germans saw Hitler as some kind of Savior and you see what resulted- A Nation almost totally destroyed. Americans, especially Trump followers, should take the time to read the Rise and fall of the Third Reich. It will give them some insight into what may befall them if they continue to blindly follow Trump.

Goebbels and Hitler use simple logic when formulating a plan to get the masses to see things their way.

From a New York Times article dated June 1933 by Roger B Nelson.

Dramatize your propaganda. All the world is a stage. Act well.

Always maintain the initiative. Always spring something new. Always let something loose; let there be something happening, something going on. And always be on the offensive—in your propaganda of the word as well as in your propaganda of deed.

See with the eyes of the masses, with the eyes of all who should be Nazis. Speak in their language.                  Give them what they want—in your propaganda. Know your people, the Germans. Be of the Germans. And, above all, learn to draw your followers en masse into your propaganda work. Make every one feel he is an actor on the stage of history building a new Germany.

Trump and Hannity are doing the very same thing. Do not take my word for it. Just tune in to Fox for a couple of days.

Having the Wrong Sow by the Ear!

I came across the word calumny a few days ago. I can truthfully say the word is foreign to me. The word calumny is actually a synonym of slander, defamation, denigration, lie, misrepresentation, etc. This word comes in handy when describing what is taking place in American politics. So much of what is thrown at the public is designed to protect Trump and his cronies. I never thought it would get to the point where many politicians, especially Republicans would risk their political careers to protect a very corrupt President. I never thought they would stoop so low and do everything in their power to mislead republican voters. They have thrown caution and honesty to the wind and are at the beck and call of Trump. Too bad they have not figured out that Trump could care less about them and is doing everything in his power to cover his butt. At some point many Republican lawmakers will come to their senses and realize they are making a bad mistake by blindly following Trump.

I must say that it was a bold move by Nunes, the Republican Party and the Trump folks to take on the FBI and the Justice Department. They do not know what these folks know. I suspect they know things about Nunes, Trump, Flynn, Paige and other Trump folks that they themselves are not aware of. Just wait until this information starts to leak out. There will be hell to pay. The simple fact that there have been several conversations between Trump folks and the Russians spells trouble. They are too stupid to realize that Russian communications are shadowed in the US as well as in other US allied countries.  Talking to Russian spy agents can spell trouble for anyone talking to these folks.  The FBI may have been shadowing Paige and other Trump cronies for several years as they communicated and made money deals with the Russians. Of course Mueller has not said one word about the money connection, however, this may be the connection that brings down the Trump house. As Hubiibras said in Canto III.. You have the wrong Sow by the ear. Trump, Nunez and other political hacks have underestimated the resourcefulness and persistence of the Justice Department and the FBI. They are way out of their league and will quickly find this out. The gloves are off and all is fair in this tug of war. I am betting the Justice Department and the FBI will prevail.

Sean Hannity’s Propaganda

Sean Hannity of Fox News has bragged about having access to President Trump. I wonder how he got this access and what he gets from this access. It may be a good idea for Mueller to have a little talk with this fellow. Who knows what he knows. It is possible that Trump may have given him some vital and damaging information. Hannity brags about his White House sources. I wonder who they are. Hannity is working awfully hard to deflect attention away from the Trump Administration. I have a feeling it is a bit more than loyalty to the President and or the conservative/republican party. He keeps trying to undermine investigations into the whole Trump matter. yet by now, he knows that there has been a lot of crimes committed. I am betting that he is more than a little dirty.

Why continued support for Trump

Why continued support for Trump

The unwavering support Donald Trump continues to enjoy, in the eyes of many, defies logic. To many folks, his behavior since becoming President of the United States, if viewed logically, would cause considerable erosion of his support base. Although there is ample evidence that Trump is unfit for the Office of President, he continues to enjoy broad support. Is there history that explains the Trump phenomenon?

Take a look at what transpired in Germany after WWI. The German people were looking for a savior-someone to get them back to enjoying what they once had before losing WWI. Here is where the Hitler and Trump coming to power mirrors each other. Hitler’s Propaganda machine painted a picture of a nation in dire straits because of a weak military that lost the war, massive unemployment, high crime, loss of influence and leadership in the world, intermingling of races, which diluted the pure German Agrarian people.

The German Propaganda was instrumental in creating circumstances and painting pictures of a nation in dire straits in need of a savior. The circumstance either real or imagined is just what an individual with Hitler’s characteristics needed to ascend to the most powerful position in Germany politics. Working to help create an image of a savior was a low-ranking German foot solder, with broad ambitions to one day become the leader of Germany. By hook and crook, including some time in prison for attempting to overthrow the German ruling establishment, he eventually realized his lofty goal. The road leading to Hitler coming to power started way back in 1922. By the mid thirties the German people eventually embraced Hitler and his platform.

Fast forwards to today. How was a like situation created to make a considerable segment of United States voters subscribe to the notion that a Savior was needed to save this nation? Remember a Talk Show host named Paul Harvey-He use to say, “Now you know the rest of the story.” Paul Harvey, known for his Conservative leanings started this whole political radio and TV talk show phenomenon. Eventually Talking heads Rush Limbaugh, Neil Boortz, Sean Hannity, Billy Cunningham, Glen Beck and other lesser know blowhards came on the scene, spouting all kinds of hateful and divisive rhetoric, usually with a conservative slant. Limbaugh has been greasing the skids for the ascension of people like Donald Trump since 1984. In addition, Fox Network, created another avenue for Donald trump to come to power. It is reasonable to assume that these outlets were not knowingly shaping their programming and narrative to insure the election of an individual with the characteristics of Donald Trump. These folks painted a picture of State of the Union of the United States as a nation in decline with utter destruction just around the corner unless drastic actions were taken. This propaganda reached its apex during the Obama years in office (2008-2016.

Trump was able to get the Republican nomination because he and his propaganda machine painted him as someone that was going to take back this Nation-someone that was going to undo everything that Obama did. Trump portrayed himself as the only one capable of saving this nation and making it great again. Millions of people bought into this rhetoric. Why? Because they had been conditioned to believe it by the talking heads of Conservative Talk Radio and Fox. Trump talks about putting America first. Hitler talked about putting Germany first. People were willing to give Hitler a lot of leeway because of some of his accomplishments. People say the same about Trump. Germans saw Hitler as uncompromising and determined to implement his agenda, no matter the consequences. Trump exhibits the same behavior.

Of particular note is the belief that Trump is a God-fearing man. Many Germans felt the same way about Hitler. As with Hitler, the Church leaders of America, despite apprehension about Trumps beliefs, believe he is sincere and will accept the role of the church in American politics. Some easily recognized ministers of the gospel in the United States proclaim that Trump is God sent, and it is a sin to criticize him and go against his policies.

Finally, as with Hitler, Trump supporters will eventually come to realize that he is to blame for most of his problems-problems that negatively impact the social fabric of this nation. He will taken to task for his stubbornness, carelessness, taking liberty with the truth (lying) ignorance, stupidity, strong will, and resolution to stay on course no matter where it leads.

Chickens came home to roost

How were they to know

As I struggle to understand what is taking place in American politics, I keep going back and researching what Thinkers of old wrote about the very thing this nation is going through with President Donald Trump. I had to dig through the Federalist Papers to gain insight into the situation. The Federalist Papers is a collection of eighty-five letters to the public beginning in 1787 and published in New York Papers. The Federalist papers were written by John Jay, James Madison and Alexander Hamilton.

Paragraph three of Letter 75 in the Federalist Papers illuminates what is happening with President Trump. Hamilton, Jay and Madison apprehensions about the very state of affairs the United States is facing with President Trump’ conduct is remarkable.   These men were thinkers, not just repeaters of what someone else said.  These writers warned this nation about people with Trumps characteristics.  How were they to know that eventually what they envisioned would actually take place. Lo and behold-along comes Donald Trump.  They describe his behavior to a T.


Excerpts from The Federalist Papers, Written by Hamilton, Jay and Madison in 1787

However proper or safe it may be in governments where the executive magistrate is an hereditary monarch, to commit to him the entire power of making treaties, it would be utterly unsafe and improper to intrust that power to an elective magistrate of four years’ duration. It has been remarked, upon another occasion, and the remark is unquestionably just, that an hereditary monarch, though often the oppressor of his people, has personally too much stake in the government to be in any material danger of being corrupted by foreign powers. But a man raised from the station of a private citizen to the rank of chief magistrate, possessed of a moderate or slender fortune, and looking forward to a period not very remote when he may probably be obliged to return to the station from which he was taken, might sometimes be under temptations to sacrifice his duty to his interest, which it would require superlative virtue to withstand. An avaricious man might be tempted to betray the interests of the state to the acquisition of wealth. An ambitious man might make his own aggrandizement, by the aid of a foreign power, the price of his treachery to his constituents. The history of human conduct does not warrant that exalted opinion of human virtue which would make it wise in a nation to commit interests of so delicate and momentous a kind, as those which concern its intercourse with the rest of the world, to the sole disposal of a magistrate created and circumstanced as would be a President of the United States.

Angry White Men

Angry about what

Donald Trump’s became President of these United States because his campaign apparatus was able to garner the vote of the supposedly Angry White man.  How were political activists and conservative politicians able to convince millions of white men that they had a reason to be angry?  The last time I looked, white men still has most of the wealth of this nation. They own most of the businesses in this nation. They hold most of the positions of influence in this nation.  They occupy most of the seats in congress, in the white house, in courts systems, including the Supreme Court.   So why are they angry? One reason, just maybe, they feel they deserve more of the wealth of this nation.  Could it be they feel they can no longer treat a certain segment of society as their ancestors did?  Are they afraid of losing their majority status in the United States?

The opinion that White Men should be angry continue to be preached on Fox and Conservative Talk Radio. Even Conservative Christian Radio took up the banner of Angry White Men and saturated the airwaves on a daily basic with this rhetoric during the last Presidential election cycle. Christian beliefs based on the bible were put aside and millions of voters chose to vote for Donald Trump.  Lord J. Russell had this to say about this issue. It is of the utmost importance that a nation should have a correct standard by which to weigh the character of its rulers.   Trump supporters choose to ignore his character.

Take a look what is taking place in United States politics. A clear picture of what is taking place is now in plain sight. Political pundits have established a propaganda machine that allowed this Angry White Men mentality to develop and become believable.  The United States political system has been hacked.  An uninformed voter makes hacking of this system easier.  Look how easy Donald Trump became President of the United States.  Woodrow Wilson said it best. A little group of willful men representing no opinion but their own, have rendered the great Government of the United States helpless and contemptible. Nothing is done in the White house- well, with the exception of Executive Orders and damage control. Both congressional houses are at loggers head. President Harry S, Truman must have had Donald Trump in mind when he said- A President needs political understanding to run the government, but he may be elected without it.  It is unclear if Angry White Men are getting what they expected now that Trump is in office. Lots of them are still angry-maybe a little angrier!

Common Sense no where to be found.

Anyone with any compassion for his or her fellowman must feel a little sorry for President Trump.  It is obvious that he is more than a little out of touch with reality. What causes his behavior-demeanor is difficult to understand. However, it is easy to see that something is wrong with our President.  He is doing his very best to put on a good face and pretend nothing is wrong.  Although I did not vote for Trump, I hate to see him struggling to run this Country.  To make matters worse, he surrounds himself with people who do not have the courage to steer him in the right direction.  His handlers are trying to hang on to the base that elected him, no matter how much damage it causes America.  Conservative Talk Radio (CTR) and Fox News Network (FNN) Created Donald Trump. They convinced their listeners that Donald Trump was just the man to undo everything that President Obama put in place.  These outlets convinced their listeners that America is in bad shape and President Obama’s leadership caused it.  These media outlets must share a lot of the blame for convincing their listeners that Trump would solve all of their real and imagined problems.

It is especially saddening and disheartening to see CTR and FNN continue to feed their listeners a study dose of garbage. Garbage designed to keep a segment of voters loyal to President Trump, no matter what.   These outlets know President Trump has become very irrational and continues to make bad decisions. CTR and FNN loyal listeners deserve better.  Trump supporters must be told the truth about this man. Truth vs loyalty is the question. What matters most? Loyalty trumps truth is the position taken by CTR and FNN.  You often hear them criticizing the media-as if they are not part of what they are criticizing.

Sam Moor had this to say about common sense: Freedom of the press and freedom of the radio are the common means by which the common man gets his common information on which must depend his common sense. Today we include television and internet.

President Trump’s vault of common sense is empty.  Was it ever full is the question.  CTR and FNN   Support for his actions and assimilation and distribution of this support to their listening audience gives the president a false sense of security. His refusal to change his behavior reflects how he feels about his control of his supporters. He feels comfortable reneging on his campaign promises.  He knows his propaganda machine CTR and FNN will smooth thing over with his supporters. Most Trump supporters are slow to realize the effectiveness of a well-oiled propaganda machine.  Joseph Paul Goebbels, Hitler’s Propaganda Czar said: We made the Reich by Propaganda.

Trump supporters are in a very difficult position. Most do not want to admit that they made a bad decision by supporting and voting for Trump. I say to them, for the good of the country, admit you made a mistake.  It is obvious that your decisions were based on the  information you got from sources that offered a one-sided view of political situations and positions.  A reluctance to seek opposite opinions that may have been eye-opening and enlightening, leaves you with  limited knowledge of what is really taking place in this Nation politics.  Depending on Conservative Talk Radio and Fox News Network is a sure fire way of depriving oneself of a whole lot  of  Information-information sorely needed to make rational decisions.  Trump Supporters-consider seeking information from sources other than the propaganda machine of the republican Party-namely, Conservative Talk Radio and FOX News Network. It is time for truth from all quarters.  America deserves truth-nothing else!

Still fighting the battle.

Why are we treated so badly?  This is the question asked by many White women. Why, after supporting their men in every way for so many years.

I continue to be amused at the public support given those who treat women badly. President Trump publicly supported Bill O’Reilly when accusations about his behavior towards women became public.  He stated that Bill was a good man and did nothing wrong. I concluded that what President Trump suggested is that maybe O’Reilly did some of the things of which he is accused. However, he does not see anything wrong with this kind of behavior. It is a struggle to understand why men with the characteristics of Trump and O’Reilly continue to get support from women, particularly white women.

One must go back in history to glean why American males continue to see women as toys, and as with toys, there are owners. Making females uncomfortable in the workplace is a classic way of showing whose boss. Snide remarks, sexual innuendos and uninvited attention are some of the tactics used to demean women.

Women must understand that their belief that they are on the same level as men, and as such, demand equal treatment, even today is a myth. To understand the nature of what is taking place in the workplace between women and men, one must take a minute and look at the history of the relationship between men and women in the US.

Look at the struggles and battles Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton fought in their efforts to secure women rights to vote. They were battling against the grandfathers of the men currently controlling almost every aspect of American life. Even today, many white males are of the same impression as their grandfathers and fight, tooth and nail to maintain their status as the head of the feeding trough.  Although under an entirely different look, it is still a battle. Ground is given grudgingly, however, without an all-out battle to maintain the status quo.

In 1854, Stanton received an unprecedented invitation to address the New York legislature; her speech resulted in new legislation in 1860 granting married women the rights to their wages and to equal guardianship of their children.

During the Civil War, Stanton again worked for abolitionism. In 1863 she and Anthony organized the Women’s National Loyal League, which gathered more than 300,000 signatures on petitions calling for immediate emancipation. The movement to extend the franchise to African American men after the war, however, caused her bitterness and outrage, reemphasized the disenfranchisement of women, and led her and her colleagues to redouble their efforts for woman suffrage.

Finally, in 1920, women were given the right to vote in the United States. Less than a hundred years ago. Imagine that!

Republican Propaganda machine running into problems.

Utilization of  a continually growing propaganda/ apparatus machine helped Republicans gained control of almost every level of United States political offices. After two scathing defeats by a Black Politician from Illinois named Obama, Republicans knew they had to come up with a different tactic to as they say, take back their White House.  Eventually a light went off in their heads. They decided to take advantage of a readily available Propaganda machine-namely Fox New Network (FNN) and Conservative Talk Radio (CTR).  Many Talking heads on these outlets, Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Ingram, etc., threw out the welcome mat to Republicans. Conservative politicians knew they had found a cheap and nation-wide avenue to get out their message.  Talking heads knew they had found a new source of revenue, namely new sponsors, willing to spend big bucks to show their support for the Conservative cause.

Listen as CTR and FNN folks go about the business of influencing voters. Their messages appeal to those lacking reasonable intellect to discern facts from out right lies. Talking heads on these outlets realized a long time ago that logic and reasoning was beyond the reach of most of their listeners and all they had to do was appeal to their passions and compulsions.  One of their most used avenue into the minds of most of their listeners is the  introduction fear.  Appeal to their concern for a safe living environment and a adequate income worked wonders.  There are other avenues into the minds of people. Listens as CTR and FNN commentators talk about how the United States is viewed in other Countries. They say other Countries have lost their fear of  America, and this equates to a lack of  supremacy and ability to rule.  They say America has lost its recognition as the dominate Nation in the World. They say this is also a lack of respect for US military power.

It is amazing how easily CTR and FNN take advantage of the fears of Americans. A classic example of this is how they have convinced their listeners and viewers that the United States should be afraid of Iran because they are trying to develop a Nuclear weapon. Mind you, they do not have one yet, just trying to produce one. They say the same thing about North Korea. Meanwhile, the US has 6970 Nukes, with over 1700 operational. Russia has a few more operational nukes than the US. They are supposed to be our sworn enemy. Why are we not afraid of an attack from Russia?

Conservative Talk Radio and Fox News Network has convinced their listeners that things got worse, including the banking industry, unemployment, home foreclosures, Stock market etc.   after Obama took office. Never mind statistics and facts prove otherwise in most instances.  Talking heads know they are on to something and are playing it to the hilt.

They may have gone overboard with their continued effort to support Donald Trump.  Entirely too many situations and problems exist where the propaganda machine is having difficulty putting a positive spin on things  coming out of the White House.  The White House and most Republicans are trying their best to control the substance of the news and the news media regarding what has and is taking place in the Trump White House. How successful they are is questionable.

CTR and FNN help get the US in to its current predicament.  They must be held accountable for their assistance in misleading the American people. They are just as culpable as the politicians they help put in office. They knew much of what they represented on the air were outright lies and Americans were knowingly deceived.
