Brian Stelter Drops A Reality Check On Worthless Liar Donald Trump
11:00am

He basically said what everyone is thinking, except for O'Reilly and all the other Trump supporters, that trump is a worthless liar who has no credibility. Hell a new Pew poll says all the world leaders trust Putin more than Trump. Which means you are in big trouble.

CNN's Brian Stelter delivered a scathing and factual questioning of Donald Trump's worthless words and said what few on cable news have been willing to admit on the air. Donald Trump's promises and words are useless and worthless because he has no credibility.

The Host of CNN's Reliable Sources, Brian Stelter said this:

But, first, what happens when a country -- no, let's change that. What happens to a country when a leader's words are worthless when their promises are toothless or utterly useless? Is that where we are now with President Trump?

From the collapse of the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, something that Trump said he would do on day one, to the explosive FBI announcement that there is an ongoing investigation into possible links between Russia and the Trump campaign, the common thread here is a White House with a credibility problem that's getting worse and worse and worse.

You know, "The Washington Post" has been counting all of Trump's misleading or false claims since January 20th. And you see here, the number is 317 so far.

"The Conservative Wall Street Journal" also weighed in this week, saying Trump's falsehoods are eroding public trust at home and abroad and saying he's at risk of being viewed as a fake president.

Of course, Trump's words do have power, the power to inspire and influence, also power to intimidate and incite fear. But journalists and lawmakers and most importantly voters just can't take him at his word. So, what happens when the president's words lose all meaning?

Stelter raised an interesting point. If Trump's words are worthless, and the president lacks credibility, it is time for cable news to stop covering everything that he says. Is it necessary for cable news networks to provide wall to wall coverage of Trump's rallies when everything he says during those speeches has no credibility, and any promise that he makes will be worthless?

It is important for the press to cover the presidency because the public must be informed, and false statements have to be fact checked, but why not put Donald Trump on tape delay? Even better, when it becomes clear that the president is repeating false statements, cut away from his rally, and stop showing it.

With Trump's job approval ratings in the 30's, giving his propaganda events live coverage can't be good for ratings.

Stelter asked some vital questions about the impact of Trump's lies. America has a president whose words are worthless. Trump doesn't keep his promises and lies in the same way that the rest of humanity breathes.

At some point, the media needs to adjust its coverage to handle the new reality. It's time for cable news to stop giving the dishonest president a public platform.

Democrats Introduce Mar-a-Lago Act To Force Release Of Trump Visitor Logs
10:00am

And btw folks, when Obama was the President O'Reilly demanded he release the White House visitor logs, saying the people have a right to know who the President is meeting with, now that Trump is in office O'Reilly does not even talk about it, let alone demand that Trump do the same.

This is real simple, the American people have a right to know who has access to the president and who has leverage over this administration, no matter who it is, Democrat or Republican.

It was a statement aimed at Donald Trump when Democrats named their bill the Mar-a-Lago Act, or Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness.

The bill, introduced by Sens. Tom Udall (D-NM), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Tom Carper (D-DE) and Jack Reed (D-RI), requires the release of visitor logs to the public wherever a President holds court, though it is named after Trump's self-styled "Winter White House." A House version of the bill is being introduced by Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL).

The Obama administration made visitor logs public. As Sheldon Whitehouse said, "if Trump won't adopt that policy himself, Congress should require it."

Tom Carper said in a tweet that "The business of the President of the United States is the business of the people of the United States."

Senator Reed issued a statement saying,

"Access to the President, in any setting, presents a serious array of national security issues. There should be transparent process for Americans to find out, when appropriate, who has access to the President."

Especially when that President is under investigation by the FBI for collusion with Russia during his campaign. Should we not know if Trump is meeting with Russians today?

Donald Trump's administration, you have to admit, has a good reason to not follow in this practice, what with Russians sneaking in back doors of Trump Tower at odd hours. And yes, that was at Trump Tower, you say. Worry not: The Mar-a-Lago Act also covers Trump Tower and the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.

Imagine what O'Reilly would say if a Democratic President was under investigation by the FBI for collusion with Russia during his election, and then he rfused to release his visitor logs, O'Reilly would have a cow and call for him to be impeached and put on trial for sedition and treason, or both.

Tom Udall said in a statement,

"It's simple: the American people have a right to know who has access to the president and who has leverage over this administration."

And who might be taking photos of the nuclear football, you know, besides folks who'll post their photos online in contrast to sending them to, maybe the Kremlin.

"By refusing to release the White House visitor logs, President Trump is only validating the rampant concerns about who may be pulling the levers in his administration. The President should end his administration's disturbing pattern of stonewalling information and immediately reinstate the previous administration's policy of publishing White House visitor logs."

And the Congress should also pass a law saying that any person who runs for President must release their tax returns, or they can not run for President.

Admittedly, getting the bill passed will be tough because it's going to need Republican support. If the GOP was serious about their calls for transparency under Obama, they would support it. But the reality is that all too many Republicans still have hands dirtied in the Trump swamp.

As John Wonderlich, Executive director of the Sunlight Foundation put it in a statement,

"As long as President Trump continues to conduct public business in his private business, the same standards of disclosure should apply to Mar-a-Lago as the White House."

The Mar-a-Lago act is a necessary step in holding this crazy president to account. While many Republicans are willing to permit or even commit treason to get their agenda passed, no one will be able to say the same of the Democrats, who, as Rep. John Lewis said, fought to their last breath for freedom.

Trump Still Lying And In Denial About The Truth
9:00am

He blamed the Democrats for his health care bill failing, when they were not asked to be part of it, and not consulted on what to put in the bill. He said he did not blame Paul Ryan for the failure, so who do you blame, it was his bill, he wrote it with the help of the Insurance Industry, and he is the one who promoted it for 7 years, Paul Ryan and the Republicans are to blame, and nobody else.

All Trump and Ryan had to do was get 216 votes, and they have 237 Republicans, they could not do it, so they could not even get everyone in their own party to vote for the bill, that is why it failed, full stop, stop Lying Trump.

And btw folks, even the big Trump supporter Eric Bolling at Fox News blamed it on Ryan and the Republicans, he also said you have to get the Insurance Industry out of the bill and tell them to get lost. The reason the bill was so bad is because Paul Ryan and the Insurance Lobby wrote it, Trump had nothing to do with the bill, he was simply going to sign it if it ever passed.

Trump said his ObamaCare replacemant bill would cover everyone and lower premiums, and the bill they tried to pass would not have done that, in fact, 24 million less people would be covered and premiums would have went up.

Trump also said he would repeal and replace it on day one, now he says he never said he would pass it in his first 60 days, yeah because he said he would pass it on day one.

Trump also said the Republicans all support him and want to work with him, which is not only a lie, it's laughable. They just voted down his biggest campaign promise, and before the election half of them tried to get his nomination taken away from him and get someone else to run instead of him.

The Republicans tried to figure out a way to throw him off the ballot and replace him at the electoral vote meeting, but they could not do it, so they were stuck with him. So I would guess that half the Republican party are opposed to Trump, which is one reason why only 17 percent of the people supported the Trump/Ryan health care scam.

Trump is a lying fool that has no clue what he is doing, he is a spolied rich kid that grew up to be a spoiled rich man. He is used to getting his way on everything, by using his wealth and fame to bully or buy what he wants. Now he has found out that those tactics do not work as President of the United States.

I could go on forever, Trump does nothing but lie, and he has destroyed his credibility, which means nobody is going to trust or believe anything he says ever again. Hell the moron gets his intelligence from Fox News and far-right internet websites, instead of the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. That alone shows what a clueless fool he is.

Trump found out real fast that to get anything done you have to work with both sides and get a bi-partisan deal to get it passed, unless you have a majority in Congress who are all willing to vote with you, which he dont. Now the question is, will he do the smart thing and work with everyone in Congress, or keep slamming his head against the wall trying to use his rich guy bully tactics.

With an approval rating of 39 percent, I would say if he is as smart as he claims he will now start working with the Democrats, instead of trying to steamroll them and give them take it or leave it bills put together by only far-right Republicans and the Insurance lobby.

The conservative Joe Scarborough (who used to be a big Trump supporter) now says if Trump keeps lying he is going to keep reporting it. Trump even said the losers are Schumer and Pelosi, when they did not do anything, the loser is Trump, Ryan, and the Republicans.

Trump is a fool that is unqualified to be the President, all he does is lie and nobody can trust him anymore, he has ruined the credibility of the office, so the only thing he can do to help the country now is admit he should not be doing the job and resign.

Bill O'Reilly Is The Biggest Trump Stooge In America
8:00am

Wednesday night O'Reilly reported on a CBS poll (who he hates) because it is the only poll I could find that has Trump at 40 percent job approval. ALL the other polls have Trump in the 30's, and I would bet money O'Reilly had a staffer find the one poll that had Trump with the highest approval rating, so he can report on it and try to make Trump look better.

O'Reilly said this:
O'REILLY: A Brand New Poll on President Trump. According to CBS News, the president's job approval rating stands at 40%, while 52% disapprove. Seven percent don't know. That's not surprising for a president with no prior political experience who is vowing to 'drain the swamp' in Washington.

Also, most Americans do not blame the president for the failure of the health care bill and most want the FBI to investigate a possible link between the Trump campaign and the Russian government? Here's a question I would like posed to the American people: Do you believe that the hatred toward President Trump has reached a dangerous level for this country? The answer is yes.

Whether you like the president or not, it is brutally unfair to try to undermine his administration as some of his opponents are trying to do. We have the Democratic Party refusing to cooperate on anything. As fair-minded people will concede, there was hatred toward President Obama. But in the first months of his tenure, there was no apparent undermining of his administration.

But now we have a climate of hatred where there are no rules. And the media feeds the beast every single day. I have never seen the national press despise a president more than they do Donald Trump. Richard Nixon might have come close at the end of his term, but what we have now is unfair and destructive for America. Hate should not be part of the political landscape."
That is just ridiculous, O'Reilly and every Republican in America refused to work with Obama or the Democrats on anything, they even refused to give the Obama supreme court pick a hearing, let alone a vote, stalling for over a year until the election and Trump's win. They all hated Obama with a passion and called him every racist name in the book, it was total racism and hate, simply because he is black and a Democrat.

O'Reilly thinks everyone has just forgot all that, or hopes you think it never happened. Trump is getting slammed because he is a lying clown that is not qualified to be the president and he has no idea what he is doing. Trump has the lowest approval ratings after 60 days in history, because he is a terrible president that lies about everything, and even when it is proven he lied he still keeps lying. O'Reilly just will not admit it, because he is a Republican and a friend of Trump.

Now think about this, Bill O'Reilly hates CBS and calls them a big part of the dishonest liberal media, and says you should not believe anything they say because of their bias, but now he wants you to believe their poll. Because it has Trump at 40% approval, and all the rest of them have him in the 30's.

And btw, he never once said it is the only poll that has Trump at 40%, or report what the other polls have, and here is something else O'Reilly did not tell you, it was taken by random adults, not likely voters or registered voters.

From cbsnews.com: This poll was conducted by telephone, March 25-28, 2017 among a random sample of 1,088 adults nationwide.

Those are the most unreliable polls you can do, except the website polls that are done on the internet. Random adult polls are basically worthless, but O'Reilly used it anyway, and it was a CBS News random adult poll, the network O'Reilly says is full of dishonest liberals that you can not believe.

So he ignored the gallup poll, he ignored the pew poll, the usatoday.com poll, the hill poll, the real clear politics poll, the NY Times poll, the AOL poll, the CNN poll, and on and on.

O'Reilly cherry picked the one poll that has Trump at 40%, and spent the first 15 minutes of his show talking about how Trump is not doing too bad for someone who is new at being in the Government. Are you kidding me, Trump is doing terrible and his job approval is at record lows, only 60 days in, it's the worst in history.

In O'Reillyworld that means Trump is doing pretty good. But when Obama was at 49% approval he said he was a disaster and a terrible president. Now you have Trump at 36% approval and O'Reilly says he is doing pretty good for someone with no Government experience.

It just shows you what a biased right-wing Trump supporting hack O'Reilly is, he is a dishonest partisan hack, just like Hannity and Limbaugh, they are all the same. O'Reilly used to report the Gallup poll, now he ignores it, because it has Trump at 35 percent.

On a side note, look at the Factor ratings this week, O'Reilly is back and his ratings are down to normal, around 3.1 to 3.2 million, which is where they were a year ago. He talked about how his ratings had went up by so much this year, when it was just a blip on the radar, and they are right back to where they were a year ago, but he does not talk about them now.

Donald Trump Lied To You About Coal Jobs
11:30am

President Trump lifted a moratorium on federal coal leases Tuesday, paving the way for excavation of a fossil fuel on public land in the West that few mining companies seem to want.

With coal miners gathered around him, Trump signed an executive order rolling back a temporary ban on mining coal and a stream protection rule imposed by the Obama administration. The order follows the president's campaign promise to revive the struggling coal industry and bring back thousands of lost mining jobs in rural America.

But industry experts say coal mining jobs will continue to be lost, not because of blocked access to coal, but because power plant owners are turning to natural gas. At least six plants that relied on coal have closed or announced they will close since Trump's victory in November, including the main plant at the Navajo Generating Station in Arizona, the largest in the West.

Another 40 are projected to close during the president's four-year term.

As power companies switch fuels, "the amount of coal in the national energy generation mix (both Fuels and Electricity Generation) has declined by 53 percent since 2006," according to a Department of Energy report released in January. Over the same period, electricity generation from natural gas increased 33 percent.

As Trump vowed to resurrect the coal industry and jobs at the Environmental Protection Agency, he promised to increase production of the resource that experts say is killing them. "We will unlock job producing natural gas, oil and shale energy. We will produce American coal to power American industry."

The IEEFA disagreed. "Promises to create more coal jobs will not be kept, the industry will continue to cut payrolls," the group said in its 2017 U.S. Coal Outlook. "These losses will be related in part to the coal industry's long-term business model of producing more coal with fewer workers."

In other words, even if they do increase coal production, nobody wants to use it when natural gas is cleaner and cheaper. And it will not increase jobs because estimates right now say that automation will replace 40% to 80% of the workers at a mine.

Paul Bledsoe, a lecturer at American University's Center for Environmental Policy, called Trump's attempt at job creation sheer nonsense. Coal's decline is too steep.

"No company will bid on new leases when there's already a glut of unwanted coal on the market," Bledsoe said. "Trump's false promise that he can bring back coal is really exposed as so much coal dust and mirrors by this executive order, since utilities will continue to use natural gas instead of coal."

Maxine Waters Delivers Smackdown Of Bill O'Reilly After Racist Joke
11:00am

Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters delivered an epic smackdown of Fox News and Bill O'Reilly Tuesday night, following O'Reilly's racist attack against the representative on Tuesday's edition of Fox & Friends.

The controversy started in the morning when O'Reilly was asked to respond to a clip of Waters speaking on the floor of the House of Representatives, and he said this: "I didn't hear a word she said. I was looking at the James Brown wig."

While O'Reilly faced bipartisan outrage after making the comments and eventually was forced to apologize, Waters seemed unfazed when she appeared on MSNBC's All In with Chris Hayes and issued a brutal takedown of O'Reilly and Fox News as a whole.

Waters said this:
Don't allow these right-wing talking heads, these dishonorable people to intimidate you or scare you. Be who you are, do what you do. And let us get on with discussing the real issues of this country. Bill O'Reilly and Roger Ailes have no credibility. They have been sued by women. They have had to pay millions out in fines for harassment and other kinds of things, and so we know about that checkered past.
After that epic takedown of Fox, Waters showed that she had no intention of dwelling on it and said, "I'm not going to be put down, I'm not going to go anywhere - I'm going to stay on the issues."

Waters said it's more important to get to the bottom of Trump's ties to Russia.

"We have a president of the United States who's wrapped his arms around Putin and Russia and the Kremlin, and I believe that if we do credible investigations, that they will find that there was collusion," she said.

The Democratic congresswoman went on to lay out some of the ways the president is already damaging the United States reputation around the world and hurting the American people.

"This president has come into this office, he's disrespected our allies across the world. He has tried to dismantle comprehensive health care for everybody under Obamacare. This is a president who won't even show his taxes," she said.

The attacks on her, Waters concluded, are used by the president and his supporters to distract from the real issues.

"When you talk about them, when you pin them down, when you're able to unveil all that they're doing, they'll try to shut you down. I am not going anywhere. I'm going to stay on message," Waters said.

"I'm going to fight for the people of this country. I'm going to fight for comprehensive health care. And I don't care what Bill O'Reilly or Ailes or Trump or any of them say, we have a responsibility as elected officials to do good public policy in the best interest of all the people."

Instead of stooping to the level of those waging racist attacks against her, Waters handled the controversy with grace and urged the media and the American people to stay focused on the real issues.

O'Reilly Is Such A Giant Idiot It Is Laughable
10:30am

First he makes a racist joke on Fox & Friends about a Democratic black Congresswoman, then after it goes public someone on his staff puts out a statement that says he is sorry.

Then on his show he puts out this lame and laughable sort of apology, where he admitted to saying something stupid and he said he was sorry. No details of what he actually said, just that it was dumb and he is sorry. Yeah he is sorry he got caught, but that's about it.

Then he does this long winded talking points memo attacking the Congresswoman because she said Trump should be impeached.

In the memo he basically says she is a clueless liberal who hates Trump so she makes up lies about him, and calls her un-patriotic. Saying she is wrong and that she should respect the President, then he says that is called being a patriot.

O'Reilly Accused Waters Of Not Understanding What She's Criticizing And Attacks The Entitlement System That Maxine Waters Loves So Much.
BILL O'REILLY (HOST): A liberal congresswoman attacks President Trump. That is the subject of this evening's Talking Points Memo. For years, Maxine Waters, Democrat from California, has been an outspoken left-wing voice highlighting the oppression she believes black Americans experience.

Talking Points believes Mrs. Waters is totally sincere in her belief system, and although many Americans disagree with her extremism at times, she deserves a hearing and should not be marginalized by political opponents. In fact, I made that mistake this morning on Fox & Friends. I said it in a simple jest that the congressman's hair distracted me. Well, that was stupid, I apologize. It had no place in the conversation.

Now, it would be instructive for Mrs. Waters to come on The Factor to define her beef. What is bothering her about President Trump? But of course, she will not do that. Way too risky, because she would be challenged by me, and she does not want to be challenged.

So, what exactly is Maxine Waters talking about when she says Mr. Trump is dangerous for America? I have no idea, and I don't think Mrs. Waters has any clue either. She is just spouting the left-wing company line, and anyone who disagrees with her -- well, she doesn't brook disagreement. That is not patriotism, madam, that's demagoguery.

In order to succeed in this country, you must be self-reliant, not dependent on the entitlement system that Maxine Waters loves so much. You must work hard. You must learn and develop a skill off the knowledge that you acquire in school. And you must be honest. That is the message Congresswoman Waters and others should be spreading. Patriotism comes in many forms. Questioning the patriotism of others and bashing a new president isn't patriotic, it's useless.
Ignoring the fact that O'Reilly, all of Fox News, and the entire Republican party did the exact same thing to President Obama for 8 years, and not once did he slam any of them for it. In fact, O'Reilly made a nice living for 8 years slamming and lying about everything Obama did, and now when a Democrat does it to Trump, he says they are un-patriotic, when he did the very same thing for 8 years.

Now the other big question in the O'reilly TPM was what is her beef, he asked it 3 or 4 times, what is her beef with Trump, then he said he has no idea, and played dumb. He asked his guest Jamila Bey, what the Congresswoman has a beef with Trump about, saying he has no clue.

Which is just laughable, because he knows exactly what her beef with Trump is, all you have to do is listen to what she said about Trump on the floor of the House, or watch a tape of her on multiple tv news show talking about it.

But O'Reilly did not do that, or maybe he did, then he pretended he had no clue what her beef with Trump is, when we all know he does, he was just playing dumb, which he is really good at.

You can find her transcripts on it, and videos, in 5 seconds with a google search, so O'Reilly could find out exactly what her problem with Trump is, but he does not want to know, or care, he just wanted to slam her and play dumb like he has no clue what her problem is.

The whole segment was a joke, and typical O'Reilly. Ignore the issue and attack the person who is making it public. This is what O'Reilly does to cover for Trump, ignore the bad news and attack anyone who talks about it.

He never even mentioned the Devin Nunes scandal, or the new news that the White House tried to scare the former attorney general into not talking about Trump and Russia, or the fact that Nunes called off the hearing where she was going to talk about it.

O'Reilly also ignored the fact that she called their bluff, Trump tried to use the DOJ to keep her from talking, her and her attorney called their bluff and said she will talk, unless they send her an official White House letter telling her she is violating laws if she talks, which they did not do, because they did not want to get caught trying to block her from talking.

They tried to do it through the DOJ so they could not be linked to it. After she called their bluff, they backed off because they knew what they were doing was wrong. Then the Trump White House got their boy Nunes to just cancel the hearing, so that would keep her quiet. It's a big cover up, and Nunes is doing what Trump tells him to, and the dishonest hack O'Reilly ignores it all.

Trump Administration Sought To Block Sally Yates From Testifying
10:00am

The Trump administration tried to block former acting attorney general Sally Yates from testifying to Congress in the House investigation of links between Russian officials and Donald Trump's presidential campaign, The Washington Post has learned, a position that is likely to further anger Democrats who have accused Republicans of trying to damage the inquiry.

According to letters The Post reviewed, the Justice Department notified Yates earlier this month that the administration considers a great deal of her possible testimony to be barred from discussion in a congressional hearing because the topics are covered by the presidential communication privilege.

Which is lawyer talk for they do not want her to talk because it makes them look guilty.

Yates and other former intelligence officials had been asked to testify before the House Intelligence Committee this week, a hearing that was abruptly canceled by the panel's chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.). Yates was the deputy attorney general in the final years of the Obama administration, and served as the acting attorney general in the first days of the Trump administration.

President Trump fired Yates in January btw.

Yates and another witness at the planned hearing, former CIA director John Brennan, had made clear to government officials by Thursday that their testimony to the committee would contradict some statements that White House officials had made, according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

The following day, when Yates's lawyer sent a letter to the White House indicating that she still wanted to testify, the hearing was canceled.

By Devin Nunes, who the Democrats are now asking to step down because he was on the transition team for Trump, and because he broke rules by going to the White House to talk with Trump, who he was investigating.

And Bill O'Reilly is ignoring all of this, now imagine what he would say if a Democrat was doing this and Hillary Clinton was in the White House. My God O'Reilly would lose his mind and call for impeachment and treason charges against them all.

Ted Koppel Tells Fox News Sean Hannity He Is Bad For America
9:00am

Ted Koppel had some bad news for Sean Hannity. The retired Nightline host told Fox News Sean Hannity to his face that he is "bad for America" in a TV interview that aired Sunday.

Koppel spoke with Hannity in a CBS Sunday Morning segment about political polarization and alternate universes of facts in America.

The veteran newsman showed clips of Hannity and Rush Limbaugh -- as examples of media figures who are "driving the country further and further apart."

But Hannity -- one of President Trump's biggest supporters at the conservative news network -- got some harsh truths delivered straight to him by Koppel in the interview.

Koppel was unmoved by Hannity's argument that Americans are smart enough to tell the difference between news and opinion shows.

"Do you think we're bad for America? You think I'm bad for America?" Hannity asked.

"Yeah," Koppel calmly told him.

And of course he is bad for America, because he uses lies and right-wing propaganda on tv to divide the country, now if he told the truth it would be different, but everything he says is a lie to get ratings and make everyone look bad, except for Republicans.

He noted that Hannity is very good at what he does and continued his argument -- after calling out Hannity for repeatedly interrupting him.

"You have attracted people who are determined that ideology is more important than facts," Koppel said.

Koppel, who retired in 2005, has been outspoken in his distaste for Fox News before. Speaking to Bill O'Reilly last March, Koppel told the Fox host he had made reporting on Donald Trump's presidential campaign "irrelevant."

"You have changed the television landscape over the past 20 years. You took it from being objective and dull to subjective and entertaining. And in this current climate, it doesn't matter what the interviewer asks him -- Trump is gonna say whatever he wants to say, as outrageous as it may be," Koppel told O'Reilly.

Media Matters President Calls For Bill O'Reilly To Be Fired
8:00am

Media Matters President Angelo Carusone released the following statement after Fox News host Bill O'Reilly issued a statement sort of apologizing to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) for comparing her hair to a James Brown wig:

Bill O'Reilly's apology ain't shit. He should be fired.

Don't be fooled. O'Reilly's apology is hollow. Immediately after O'Reilly's spokesperson released the statement, he personally took to Twitter. Not to tweet an apology himself. But instead to decry political correctness - a position that O'Reilly and his ilk usually retreat to when they are criticized for bigotry (or worse). You don't need to be familiar with his long history of racially inflammatory attacks to know what he was trying to convey with this tweet.

And yes, Bill O'Reilly should be fired. Not by my standards. I don't think it would be fair to expect O'Reilly or Fox News to adhere to those. But instead, by Fox News own standard. Just four days ago, Fox News fired its longtime comptroller due to an extensive history of racially inflammatory attacks. Explaining the termination, Fox's spokesperson said that there was no place for abhorrent behavior like that at Fox News.

O'Reilly didn't get the message - and he of all people at Fox needed to hear it. Racism is just as much a fixture of O'Reilly's program as bluster is.

Fox News set the standard for acting here. They said racism doesn't have a place at Fox News. Now, four days later, the network has to decide: will they abandon their standard of not supporting racism in favor of their standard bearer, or will they hold O'Reilly accountable? They can't have both.

O'Reilly's remarks drew a firestorm of criticism from commentators who called them racist and sexist. He will reportedly address his comments on tonight's broadcast of The O'Reilly Factor. However, it is unlikely that any apology tonight will be sincere -- on Twitter, he has promised a "big political correctness" segment on the show.

Media Matters has documented Bill O'Reilly's extremely long history of not just making such comments but also of enabling and rewarding people like Jesse Watters who do the same.

Bill O'Reilly Makes Racist & Sexist Joke About Maxine Waters Hair
7:00am

The racist right-wing idiot Bill O'Reilly strikes again.

During a segment of "Fox and Friends," the show played a clip of the African American Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca.) speaking out against the discriminatory and bigoted practices of President Donald Trump's supporters. When asked to give his response, O'Reilly killed two birds with one stone and made a comment that was both racist and sexist.

"I didn't hear a word she said. I was looking at the James Brown wig," O'Reilly said. "Do we have a picture of James Brown? It's the same wig."

Co-host Brian Kilmeade laughed and made a tasteless joke about the musician, who died in 2006. "He's not using it anymore," he said. "They just -- they finally buried him."

Ainsley Earhardt, another co-host, tried to defend Waters, saying this: "You can't go after a woman's looks," she said. "I think she's very attractive."

O'Reilly responded: "I didn't say she wasn't attractive. I love James Brown but it's the same hair James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, had, whatever it is, I just couldn't get by it."

Waters has yet to respond to the Fox host's comments. But that's probably because she's too busy delivering the keynote address at the National Community Reinvestment Coalition conference, leading Democrats in the crusade against Trump and being an all-around boss to even give a damn.

This isn't a first for Fox News. Media Matters shared an old clip on Twitter of a segment called "Gangstas and Demons." In the video, a conservative pundit accuses Waters of doing drugs.

"You saw what happened to Whitney Houston," he said. "Step away from the crack pipe, step away from the Xanax, step away from the lorazepam because it's gonna get you in trouble."

This is not a first for O'Reilly. He makes racist statements all the time, including a joke about black kids stealing his hubcaps at a charity event. And saying he would not call for a lynching party for Michelle Obama after she made a statement O'Reilly and the Republicans did not like.

In 2007, the Fox host said he was surprised that a famous Harlem restaurant was the same as other New York City eateries "even though it's run by blacks, with primarily black patronship." He actually said he was shocked it was just a normal place, and that all the blacks in there were not running around screaming where is my m-fing ice tea. Which is about as racist of a statement you can make.

In 2016, he blamed the Black Lives Matter movement for rising murder rates in some cities. Before the election, which is beyond ridiculous, and he said that Hillary Clinton would have a better opportunity at appealing to voters of color if she brought out The O'Jays during a rally. Too many to list, those are just a few.

So he plans to talk about it on his Tuesday night show, and here is what he had on his website promoting it at 5:51pm cst. The headline is not how he is sorry for the racist joke, it's Congresswoman attacks President Trump. The headline should be: My Apology For Another Dumb Racist Joke.

Talking Points Memo & Top Story

A Congresswoman Attacks President Trump

Guests: Jamila Bey

For many years, Rep Maxine Waters of California has been an outspoken liberal voice, highlighting the oppression she believes black Americans experience in this country. On the House floor yesterday, Rep Waters blasted President Trump and called him "dangerous" for minorities and the U.S. What exactly does she mean? Tonight we'll explain.

GAO To Probe Security And Costs For Trump Mar-A-Lago Visits
6:00am

The main independent investigative arm of Congress will look into whether President Donald Trump has set up proper security precautions at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and if his hotel business is turning over profits received from foreign governments, as he promised.

The statement of investigation by the Government Accountability Office last week came in response to a Feb. 16 request from four Democratic lawmakers: Sens. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.) and Tom Udall (N.M.) and Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.).

The GAO will address four issues about the president and his properties:

1) It will examine the adequacy of the measures used to protect classified material and provide secure communications for the president and his staff at Mar-a-Lago.

2) It will consider what security screening procedures the resort has implemented for members and their guests when the president is visiting.

3) It will look into how the Secret Service and the Department of Defense are ensuring that the charges incurred on trips to Mar-a-Lago are fair and reasonable.

4) It will investigate whether Trump's hotels are sending to the U.S. Treasury any profits from foreign government customers.

The letter from the lawmakers came after Trump was photographed on an outdoor patio at Mar-a-Lago engaged in intense discussion with the Japanese president and their national security aides about how to respond to a North Korean missile test. At least one Mar-a-Lago member posted pictures of the open-air discussions to Facebook.

"We are deeply concerned by recent reports that the President, his staff, and the Japanese Prime Minister discussed national security matters on full view to fellow diners, and reviewed potentially sensitive national security material in apparent violation of security protocols," the four lawmakers wrote to the GAO in February.

"In addition, we are concerned about the expenditure of taxpayer funds at Mar-a-Lago by the Secret Service and other government officials associated with the President."

Trump has traveled to his resort in Palm Beach, Florida, on six of the 10 weekends that he has been president. He also traveled to his golf course in Northern Virginia this past Saturday and Sunday.

The president has similarly visited his hotel in Washington, D.C., on multiple occasions since his inauguration. The hotel has become a hot spot for those seeking to curry favor. After Trump's election, management held an event to sell foreign dignitaries on staying at the hotel as a way to make a good impression with the incoming administration.

Ethics experts and law professors have pointed out that payments from foreign governments to the president are forbidden under the Constitution's emoluments clause.

When Trump announced that he would maintain ownership of his business during his term in office, a move without modern presidential precedent, he vowed to turn over any profits from foreign governments to try to assuage those constitutional concerns.

On Friday, Sens. Udall, Whitehouse, Jack Reed (D-R.I.) and Tom Carper (D-Del.) also introduced legislation that would require the White House to maintain and publish a visitors log for Mar-a-Lago.

Trump Sets Record: Fastest President To 36% Job Approval
11:30am

Trump has at least set one record, but it's not the record you want to set. He is the fastest president in history to a 36% job approval rating, it only took him 66 days to get there.

In the new Gallup poll Trump has dropped to 36% approval. President Donald Trump's job approval rating fell to 36% for the three-day period of March 24-26, following Republican House leaders failed effort to pass a new healthcare bill that would have replaced the Affordable Care Act.

And O'Reilly is still defending everything Trump says and does. But when Obama even dropped to 49% approval O'Reilly called him a disaster and a failed president. When Trump drops to 36% approval, O'Reilly does not even report it. Every day Obama was under 50% O'Reilly used to report it every night on his show, now he never even mentions it for Trump.

Top Democrats Ask Devin Nunes to Recuse Himself From Russia Inquiry
11:00am

So what does O'Reilly do, have Nunes on his show to spin it for himself and Trump. O'Reilly never mentioned a word about Nunes being on the Trump transition team, or the fact that he went missing in the middle of the night and met with someone, then the next day went to the White House and talked to Trump, one of the people he is investigating. If a Democrat did this O'Reilly would want them put on trial for treason, but when a Republican does it he has him on his show to spin it.

O'Reilly also downplayed Trump and Ryan losing on their health care plan, even Charles Krauthammer called O'Reilly out for spinning it.

KRAUTHAMMER: "You are underestimating the damage done to Trump," Krauthammer said, "by the spectacular implosion of this proposal. This was a major proposal and a seven-year promise by Republicans. Not only President Trump was hurt, but also the Republican Party. I am with you that Republicans in the House should have voted yes and sent the bill to the Senate, they made a huge tactical mistake.

And btw, O'Reilly also never reports that John McCain has called for a special prosecutor saying he has no clue what Nunes is doing.

Top House Democrats on Monday called on the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee to recuse himself from the panel's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, thrusting the entire inquiry into jeopardy amid what they described as mounting evidence he was too close to President Trump to be impartial.

The demands followed revelations that the committee's chairman, Representative Devin Nunes of California, had met on White House grounds with a source who showed him secret American intelligence reports. The reports, Mr. Nunes said last week, showed that Mr. Trump or his closest associates may have been incidentally swept up in foreign surveillance by American spy agencies.

The new revelation that the information actually came from a meeting held on the grounds of the White House intensified questions about what prompted Mr. Nunes to make the claim about the intelligence gathering, and who gave him the information.

Representatives Adam B. Schiff of California, the committee's top Democrat, and Nancy Pelosi of California, the House Democratic leader, suggested that Mr. Nunes, who served on the Trump transition team, was simply too close to the White House to run an independent, thorough inquiry.

There are even reports that the White House gave Nunes the information, which is unreal, because he is investigating them, they should not be meeting with him in private to tell him anything.

"The public cannot have the necessary confidence that matters involving the president's campaign or transition team can be objectively investigated or overseen by the chairman," Mr. Schiff said on Monday night.

Schiff stopped short of pulling the panel's Democrats out of the investigation. Doing so could jeopardize Democrats influence over the inquiry and, importantly, their access to intelligence on possible ties between Trump associates and Moscow.

The House Intelligence Committee is running one of the three investigations into Russian interference in the election, and possible ties between Trump associates and Russia. The Senate Intelligence Committee is running its own inquiry, and the F.B.I. has carried out a broad counterintelligence investigation since July.

By most accounts, the Senate and F.B.I. investigations remain on track, unlike the House inquiry, which appears to have increasingly descended into a sideshow since its first public hearing a week ago. That was when James B. Comey, the director of the F.B.I., publicly disclosed the bureau's investigation for the first time.

Days later, Mr. Nunes made his first disclosure about Mr. Trump or his associates being caught in American intelligence gathering, prompting critics to argue that he was trying to shift attention and provide an assist to the White House at a crucial moment.

The revelation that Mr. Nunes had viewed intelligence materials on White House grounds the day before bolstering the administration's case fueled damaging speculation that he was acting at the instruction of the president.

That could prove fatal to the bipartisan investigation, which has hinged on the ability of Mr. Nunes to conduct a neutral inquiry while maintaining the trust and cooperation of Mr. Schiff.

Pelosi echoed Schiff's call for Mr. Nunes to recuse himself, saying his behavior had "tarnished" his post.

Bill Maher says Trump Supporters Should Admit Trump Is A Conman
10:30am

I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. Everything I predicted about Trump is coming true, and worse. I said he was a lying clown who would promise the moon to get elected then screw everyone but the wealthy and the corporations, and I was exactly right. And we have 4 years of his insanity to deal with, unless the American people rise up and revolt, and call for his impeachment.

Bill Maher also tried to tell everyone about Trump, but not many people would listen, and now he is slamming Trump for being nothing but a conman.

"The Trump approach to health care was never going to be repeal and replace," Maher said. "It was always bait and switch."

In reality though it was not really bait and switch by Trump himself, it was bait and switch, he was the bait and Paul Ryan switched it. Basically Trump lied about the health care plan that would cover everyone and lower premiums, then he let Paul Ryan and the Insurance Industry write the bill, and that was the switch.

Trump never actually had anything to do with writing the bill, he just promoted it, Ryan and the Insurance Industry wrote the bill, that is why only 17% supported it, because they do not care about the people. The whole thing was a plan to give the rich tax cuts and make the Insurance Industry a fortune by cutting medicaid and screwing the old, the poor, and the disabled.

Like I said over and over before the election, if you vote this clown in it will be a disaster for everyone except the wealthy, the Insurance Industry, and the corporations. And now it is happening, but you have not seen anything yet, it is going to get far worse, unless the people rise up and demand Trump resign or be impeached.

Following Donald Trump's massive failure to impose Trumpcare on the country, even with full GOP control of Congress, Bill Maher urged the president's supporters to finally admit what much of the country already knows - that Trump is a conman who promised his voters the world during the campaign without any real intention of delivering it.

Maher said that calling Trump a "used car salesman" is appropriate but it's probably a bit insulting to used car salesmen.

"With a used car salesman, at least you get a car," said Maher. "With Trump, you don't get a car, you just get taken for a ride."

As Maher noted during his New Rules segment, Trump said during the campaign that he would provide health care for all Americans and "get drug prices so far lower than they are now, your head will spin."

Shortly after his election, though, Trump met with big pharma executives and cut regulations to help them, not the consumers. Then he crafted an unpopular piece of health care legislation that would throw 24 million Americans off their insurance plans while giving a tax cut to the wealthy.

But health care is just one thing he promised to fix immediately after taking office, as Maher said on Friday night.

-- Trump also pledged to build the Keystone pipeline with American steel - that's not happening.

-- Trump promised to be the president for coal miners, even though his proposed budget would decimate the very states that supported him the most, like West Virginia.

-- Trump said Mexico would pay for the wall - full stop. Now he says Mexico will pay taxpayers back after they foot the bill for it.

"I know you real Americans hate being called stupid, but you gotta meet me half way and stop being stupid," Maher said.

"You Trumpsters didn't elect the next Reagan, you elected every cheap huckster who you should've known was full of BS because he was always promising the moon - everything is always foolproof and 100 percent."

Trump spent the entire 2016 campaign promising what he needed to promise in order to rile up struggling white voters and win votes. Now that he is president, it's quickly becoming apparent that he had no intention of keeping these promises - only of fooling enough voters into putting him in the White House.

IG Now Investigating Trump For Pulling ObamaCare Ads
10:00am

Donald Trump is now facing another investigation, this one is by the Inspector General.

The Department of Health and Human Services inspector general has launched an investigation into the Trump administration's decision to pull ads encouraging people to sign up for the Affordable Care Act during the enrollment period. By shutting down such outreach, the action could be seen as a secret way to starve the health plan without legislative authority.

And what a shocker, Bill O'Reilly has not said one word about it.

The Trump administration said the ads were a waste of money, but Democrats have characterized the action as sabotage.

In response to a request to investigate the actions from Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), the inspector general said his office is conducting a "fact-finding" review.

The office will examine exactly what was done and when by the administration, and its effect on enrollment in the health plan, according to a letter written to the senators Thursday. Dwindling numbers of consumers enrolled in any insurance undermines an affordable risk pool.

"We will conduct a fact-finding review of HHS's decision related to halting (and resuming, as applicable) paid advertisements, email, social media, and other outreach efforts related to marketplace enrollment in 2017," HHS Inspector General Daniel Levinson wrote in the letter to the senators.

Warren welcomed the "independent review of the Trump administration's decision to cut off efforts to enroll people" in the Affordable Care Act. The health deparment's "move to halt outreach for ACA enrollment could contribute to weakening healthcare marketplaces and raising costs for hard working people across the country," she added.

Obamacare remains the law of the land, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Friday, after the GOP health plan was pulled before a vote because Republican leaders did not have the support needed to pass it.

There are concerns that enrollment may have been hurt when the Trump administration suddenly ended the ads and other outreach in late January just days before the end of open enrollment in Obamacare. Some 12.2 million Americans signed up for the plan during the enrollment period through HealthCare.gov and state insurance markets, but that was lower than expected.

Now that he has lost his fight to pass his own version of a health insurance system, Trump has repeated his plan to let the Affordable Care Act explode, which could include further plans to discourage enrollment.

Fears about the plan and the Trump administration's disdain for it could also drive consumers away, critics say, which could be seriously damaging to the health plan system.

Trump Promoted Fox Show That Called For Paul Ryan To Quit
9:00am

Former prosecutor Jeanine Pirro opened her Fox News show Saturday by calling for Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to step down as Speaker of the House -- hours after President Donald Trump posted a tweet telling his followers to tune in.

The host of "Justice with Judge Jeanine" launched the blistering attack in the wake of the failure of the Obamacare repeal bill, known as the American Health Care Act, which was withdrawn by Republicans ahead of its scheduled vote Friday in the House of Representatives.

Donald J. Trump - @realDonaldTrump

Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M.

9:41 AM - 25 Mar 2017

Pirro used her opening statement to downplay Trump's role in the fiasco, placing blame for the bill's demise squarely on the speaker.

"Paul Ryan needs to step down," she said. "The reason? He failed to deliver the votes on his health care bill. The one that he had seven years to work on. The one that had to be pulled to prevent the embarrassment of not having enough votes to pass."

She added: "I want to be clear. This is not on President Trump. No one expected a business man to completely understand the nuances, the complicated ins and outs of Washington and its legislative process."

Pirro said Ryan was culpable for not securing enough votes to pass the bill, despite all of his "swagger and experience" in Congress.

Calling the bill a "total and complete failure," the host slammed Ryan for taking on health care reform so early in the president's term, noting that the Ryan should have known better, especially since Trump is "a complete outsider."

"How could you possibly misjudge this?" she asked.

"I can only imagine that he and his aides took on health care because they believed Ryan had his back, and he didn't."

On Friday, President Trump praised Ryan for working "very, very hard" on the bill, while blaming Democrats for its failure.

But on Saturday, many on Twitter found it curious that Trump promoted Pirro's show hours before she demanded Ryan resign. Someone at Fox gave Trump a heads up on what Pirro was going to say, so he promoted it to make sure all his followers saw how she covered for him and blamed it all on Paul Ryan.

Schiff Says GOP Chair Trying To Choke Off Public Info On Russia Probe
8:00am

The Republican leader of the House Intelligence Committee called off a public hearing scheduled for Tuesday on possible ties between President Donald Trump's associates and the Russian government, saying the group will hold a closed-door meeting first.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the highest ranking Democrat on the committee, called the decision by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) "a dodge" and an "attempt to choke off public info."

While Nunes characterized the change as a postponement, Schiff called it a cancellation.

BREAKING: Chairman just cancelled open Intelligence Committee hearing with Clapper, Brennan and Yates in attempt to choke off public info.

-- Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) March 24, 2017

Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan had agreed to testify in front of the committee on March 28. But Nunes said the public hearing was being postponed because the committee needed to first hear from FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers in a private setting.

The House Intelligence Committee will also interview Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who will meet with the panel amid unsettling new reports about his ties to Russia, Nunes said. Manafort, who stepped down as Trump's campaign chair in August, worked for a close Kremlin ally to help advance Russia's interests in the U.S., according to The Associated Press.

Trump's former foreign policy adviser, Carter Page, and longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone later said they would also meet with the committee.

Nunes welcomed other Trump associates to come forward but was evasive about whether he would use subpoenas to call in witnesses who did not volunteer -- an authority Schiff has said the chairman must be willing to exercise.

On Wednesday, Nunes told reporters that an unnamed source provided him with dozens of reports showing that Trump associates -- and maybe even the president himself -- were subject to incidental intelligence collection in the final months of the Obama administration.

The surveillance occurred legally, as part of a program that allows for spying on suspected agents of a foreign power, Nunes acknowledged.

Though Nunes has repeatedly disavowed Trump's claims of being wiretapped by former President Barack Obama, while also attempting to give credence to the idea that Trump and his team were the victims of a deep state loyal to the previous administration.

Without notifying Schiff, Nunes briefed Trump on his revelations at the White House, where he gave a second news conference on Wednesday. Which is unheard of, and has never been done before.

And the chairman's so-called bombshell allegations fell apart over the following days. According to Schiff, Nunes later admitted that few Trump associates were actually mentioned by name in the reports he viewed -- but said he could still figure out the "probable identity of the parties."

Schiff suggested on Friday that Nunes actions occurred in collaboration with the White House. "In an effort to justify the unjustifiable, Trump is now interfering in this investigation," the California Democrat said, referring to Trump's unproven wiretapping allegation.

The Washington Post editorial board wrote on Friday that Nunes was unfit to lead the committee's investigation and said he should be investigated for a possible leak of classified information. Asked if Nunes should be removed as head of the intelligence committee, Schiff punted the question to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) -- but made his opinion clear.

"The speaker has to decide -- just as well as our own chairman -- whether they want a credible investigation," he told reporters on Friday.

"The events of this week are not encouraging. I think anyone watching them has very legitimate and profound concerns about whether this Congress, indeed, can do a credible investigation."

Schiff reiterated his call for the creation of an independent investigative commission modeled after the 9/11 Commission to investigate ties between the president and Moscow.

Clown Trump Handed Germany An Invoice For Money They Do Not Owe
11:00am

Donald Trump is so stupid he thought Germany paid the USA money to protect them, so he had his staff print up a fake bill for $300 billion pounds and gave it to German president Angela Merkel. It just shows how clueless Trump is, because no country pays money to the USA to protect them, each country pays money to the U.N. to be part of NATO, they do not pay the USA a dime, ever.

And btw folks, Trump claimed they owe $250 billion pounds, so he added $50 billion pounds for interest. Which is just laughable. To even pull a stunt like that shows you have a screw loose, and you are not right in the head. Then the Trump staff went along with it, when someone should have told Trump how NATO works and how the money is paid to NATO through the U.N.

But nobody did that, instead they just go along with his crazy stunt that makes him look like a fool. It's like they let him do this crazy stuff to show people how nuts he is, so they can let people know what they are dealing with.

Trump gave German Chancellor Angela Merkel a worthless invoice like it was a car repair bill, even though it is not his job to bill Germany for anything, and they do not owe the money to him. It just shows you what a clown and a fool Donald Trump is, he is a joke and the laughing stock of the world.

The Sunday Times in England reported this: "Donald Trump handed the German Chancellor Angela Merkel a bill -- for more than 300 billion pounds -- for money her country owed Nato for defending it when they met last weekend, German government sources have revealed.

Nato countries pledged in 2014 to spend 2% of their GDP on defence, something only a handful of nations - including the UK, Greece, Poland and Estonia - currently do.

But the bill has been backdated even further to 2002, the year Merkel's predecessor, Gerhard Schroder, pledged to spend more on defence.

Trump instructed his aides to calculate how much German spending fell below 2% over the past 12 years, then added interest.

The bill -- handed over during private talks in Washington -- was described as outrageous by one German minister.

The story confirms that Trump is clueless about how treaties work. As former US Ambassador NATO Ambassador Ivo Daalder recently tried to explain to Trump, NATO is not a financial transaction. NATO is not a US-owned private club like Mar-a-Lago. It is not Trump's job to collect dues from member countries.

Ivo Daalder -- @IvoHDaalder

This is not a financial transaction, where NATO countries pay the US to defend them. It is part of our treaty commitment.

All NATO countries, including Germany, have committed to spend 2% of GDP on defense by 2024. So far 5 of 28 NATO countries do.

9:25 AM - 18 Mar 2017

So far every time Trump has tried to pull his Art Of The Deal nonsense as president; he has failed miserably. Trump tried to force House Republicans into voting on health care but had to withdraw the bill at the last second after he was facing certain defeat, and Germany has made it clear that they are going to shrug off and ignore Trump's amateur tactics.

And btw folks, Donald Trump had a ghost writer for art of the deal, in other words, he never wrote it, someone else did, he just put his name on it because he is famous.

Donald Trump has no idea what he is doing, and his incompetence is embarrassing the United States of America.

All 8 Supreme Court Justices Oppose Trump Pick Neil Gorsuch
10:30am

In a stunning move that no one saw coming, all eight Supreme Court Justices have turned their backs on Trump, rejecting his nominee to fill Antonin Scalia's empty seat.

All eight of the current justices agree that President Trump is completely wrong in choosing Neil Gorsuch to fill the ninth seat on the Supreme Court bench. The letter cited a 2008 ruling by Gorsuch as reason.

While Trump was attempting to persuade Congress of reasons Gorsuch would be a good choice, The conservative George Bush pick Chief Justice John Roberts wrote a letter from the Supreme Court that addressed the issues with Gorsuch's approach being the law of the land.

The justices say the decision Gorsuch made in 2008 was not right, saying this:

"A focus on the particular child is at the core of the IDEA. The instruction offered must be specially designed to meet a child's unique needs through an individualized education program."

This will certainly lead to O'Reilly having a fit, and a massive White House tantrum, as the spoiled clown Trump realizes that he's been ganged up on by a group of people with more than 100 times the intelligence he has.

Secret Service Says They Can Not Afford The Trump Lifestyle
10:00am

President Donald Trump's frequent travel, large family and unusual living situation are weighing heavily on the Secret Service budget.

The agency recently requested an additional $60 million in spending for fiscal year 2018, according to a Washington Post report on Tuesday. Nearly $27 million of that was to be earmarked for security at the president's private residence at Trump Tower in New York, where first lady Melania Trump lives with their 11-year-old son.

The Secret Service also said it needed another $33 million to cover travel costs incurred by "the president, vice president and other visiting heads of state."

The Office of Management and Budget rejected the request, a source told the Post, which could potentially force the Secret Service to scale back on other operations.

The Post report comes amid questions about the president's regular weekend trips to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Trump has made at least five trips to the "Southern White House" since his inauguration, each time costing taxpayers an estimated $3 million or more.

And for the record, most Presidents (and their family) live in Washington and do not travel to Florida every weekend to play Golf, that cost $3 million dollars each time. Especially when they slammed the former President when he took a weekend off to play Golf a few times a year, let alone every weekend. It also shows that Trump does not care about how much taxpayer money he spends, especially when he is making a profit on it.

Providing Secret Service details for the first lady and the rest of Trump's family, including his four adult sons and daughters, has also led to mounting costs. Although this level of protection is standard for the first family, the specific needs of Trump's older children have attracted scrutiny.

In February, for example, Eric Trump flew to Uruguay to promote the Trump Organization. The trip ended up costing taxpayers nearly $90,000 in hotel bills for the Secret Service agents who accompanied him, leading to renewed criticism of how the president's business interests intertwine with government functions.

Hey folks, Trump is a billionaire and his sons and daughters are all millionaires, they should pay for their own travel, but they do not, because they now know they can go anywhere they want in the world and charge it all to the taxpayers. And if I were a Republican who voted for Trump, I would be mad as hell about this, because they are wasting my money.

The idea of taxpayers footing higher bills to protect the wealthy Trumps may not sit well with critics of the harsh federal budget the president released last week. Trump's plan proposes eliminating a number of antipoverty programs.

At a press conference this week, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said there was no hypocrisy here. And no, he was not hit by lightning.

"Presidents always travel," said Spicer. "The president, wherever he goes, he carries the apparatus of the White House with us. That is just something that happens."

But not like Trump, he is costing us way more than other Presidents, because he goes back to Florida every weekend, and they all stay at Trump hotels, so he is making money from his weekly Golfing trips at the expense of the American taxpayers. And his wife refuses to live in Washington, so they have to spend millions more to protect her and her child in New York. Where they say it is a security nightmare.

So it is not even close to what the other Presidents have done in the past. Trump will cost the taxpayers at least $200 million more a year than other Presidents, and he does not care, because he is a spoiled clown.

Republicans Are Colluding With Trump
9:00am

Given Trump's refusal to acknowledge the threat to national security, it is essential that Congress discover the truth about Russia's activities and stop colluding with Trump.

According to career law enforcement officials, criminals will do anything to deflect blame away from themselves and when possible are more likely to blame the police, prosecutors, and judges when they catch up to the bad guys.

One official recently shared a story of a rapist who raised Hell in court and complained that the real crime was committed by the victim and her parents for ratting him out to the police over the sexual assault caught on one of those nanny-cams, the criminal demanded that the district attorney drop the rape charges and launch an investigation into who actually reported the crime and prosecute the parents for capturing the assault on video.

Over the past few months Americans have witnessed some high-level Republican criminals in Congress, and corrupt Donald Trump in the White House, attempt to blame the intelligence community for doing its job protecting Americans and national security.

Trump has been beating the blame drum that the only crime regarding his campaign's conspiracy with a hostile foreign nation was who leaked information that Trump's people were in bed with Putin.

That behavior was on display before, during, and after the House held a meeting with directors of the FBI and NSA because they refuted a charge from Trump about President Obama, and revealed they are investigating the Trump campaign's collusion with Russia, including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

Now you would think the so-called patriotic Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee would have at least feigned concern over what they learned from FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Michael S. Rogers about the liar in the Oval Office.

Comey, for his part, debunked the Trump claim that President Obama went outside of America and enlisted British contractors to wiretap the paranoid nut-job in the White House. Rogers agreed with Comey and verified claims by America's angry British allies that it was utterly ridiculous that their IC followed a direct order from a foreigner, President Barack Obama, to illegally spy on Trump.

Congressional Republicans learned they were doing its due diligence and has been officially investigating the ties between Trump, his lieutenants and, the Kremlin.

Their response, like that of Trump, was to pretend that colluding with a hostile foreign government wasn't really a crime and demanded that the focus of any congressional investigation should be on the person or persons who leaked information that the country has known to be true since last summer.

What was revealing about just how closely tied to people in the Trump White House two Republicans on the House Intel Committee really are, both Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Trey Gowdy (R-SC) were enraged over the revelation that Turkey's foreign agent, retired General Michael Flynn the short-lived NSA chief, was caught lying about his contacts with the Russians.

NO, they were not outraged that a retired general accepted payments from, and conspired with, a hostile Russian operator, they were mad that the American people learned (from leaks) that the President appointed a foreign agent and Russian sympathizer as head of the National Security Agency.

Nunes and Gowdy agree with Trump and believe the focus of any congressional or Justice Department investigation should target the leakers, not the alleged criminals colluding with the Russians. Which is just like a common criminal blaming law enforcement because they were investigated.

Here's the thing about the intelligence community that Republicans are well aware of; every agent in the 17 intelligence agencies serve the United States of America and work tirelessly to protect its people, interests and national security.

If someone in the intelligence community did alert the public or the press about anyone in the Trump camp colluding with Russia or it's spies to undermine American democracy, then they should be hailed as heroes, not traitors.

Instead they are being railed against by common criminals like Trump and congressional Republicans for doing their jobs protecting national security. In fact, Trump is due to appoint one of his billionaire friends, a wealthy elitist with no intelligence experience, to investigate the intelligence community and clean house, probably of any agent who refuses to take an oath swearing to Donald Trump at the expense of American national security.

As the Washington Post's editorial board said Tuesday:

"Congressional Republicans ought to consider larger national interests. Russia's intervention in the election was not incidental and haphazard, but part of a concerted campaign to disrupt Western democracy. Given Trump's refusal to acknowledge the threat, it is essential that Congress discover the truth about Russia's activities."

Either congressional Republicans are terrified of Trump ordering the liar leading the Justice Department to investigate and punish them, or they are colluding with Trump to conceal his and his close advisors treason against the United States, something it appears that only the intelligence community can protect us from now that Republicans revealed they are part of the cover up.

Trump Grants Pipeline Permits Without His Promised Conditions
8:00am

President Donald Trump vowed to win a "better deal" for Americans before approving the Keystone XL and the Dakota Access oil pipelines, promising to extract concessions and force the builders to use U.S. steel.

Now his administration has authorized both projects -- with those conditions unmet.

The outcomes illustrate the limits of the president's power and poke holes in the carefully crafted image of Trump as a dealmaker so good at twisting arms that he wrote a book about his negotiating prowess.

"Donald Trump's promises on these pipelines are like the pipelines themselves: hollow," said Senator Ed Markey, a Democrat from Massachusetts. "The only promises being kept with approval of these pipelines will be the ones made to Big Oil who want to export this dirty oil to thirsty foreign markets at the expense of our environment and our economy."

Even as he revived consideration of Keystone XL and the Dakota Access pipelines in January, Trump said authorizations were "subject to terms and conditions to be negotiated by us."

The same day, Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said Trump would "make sure that he is looking or working with all parties involved" in the fight over the Dakota Access Pipeline, including tribes that were opposed to the project.

But approval for the Dakota pipeline was announced as Standing Rock Sioux Tribe chairman Dave Archambault II was on an airplane heading for Washington for the so-called negotiations. The chairman then canceled his meeting with administration officials after learning of the decision.

"You want to put pipelines under our lands, you're going to make the pipe in this country," Trump said.

Trump made that promise several times, including during a Feb. 23 meeting with manufacturing CEOs at the White House. He told U.S. Steel Corp. Chief Executive Officer Mario Longhi that "the pipe is coming from the U.S." for the two projects.

But Keystone XL won't be entirely made-in-the-U.S.A.

"Keystone XL is going to be built with foreign steel, imperil people all along the pipeline route while feeding exports, and exacerbate our climate crisis if built," said David Turnbull, campaigns director for Oil Change International.

"Trump has shown us that he doesn't have a clue how the energy industry actually works, and he and his team are in over their heads when it comes to negotiating on behalf of the American people."

TransCanada President Russ Girling noted that the company had already bought most of the materials for Keystone, with the majority purchased in the U.S. The rest will be made by American manufacturers "to the best of our abilities," Girling told reporters outside the White House.

That's not good enough, said Tom Steyer, the billionaire who heads NextGen Climate.

"Trump promised that Keystone XL pipeline would be built with American steel or it wouldn't be built, period. He lied,"

Steyer said in a statement. "Once again, he is bowing to corporate polluters and Russian oligarchs in a deal that harms the safety, health and prosperity of American families."

Jane Kleeb, president of the group Bold Alliance, noted on a conference call that the steel for Keystone XL was purchased long ago and "is sitting in a field in North Dakota -- and has been for the past five years."

"It is, yet again, another lie that the president has told to the American people."

Former Trump Campaign Manager Lied About Working For Russian Billionaire
10:00am

President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to assist President Vladimir Putin, the Associated Press news agency reports.

Paul Manafort proposed a strategy to nullify anti-Russian opposition across former Soviet republics about 10 years ago.

AP says documents and interviews support its claims about Manafort.

Manafort has insisted that he never worked for Russian interests, which we now know was a lie.

He worked as Trump's campaign chairman from March until August last year, including the period during which Trump clinched the Republican nomination.

He resigned after AP revealed that he had co-ordinated a secret Washington lobbying operation on behalf of Ukraine's ruling pro-Russian political party until 2014.

Newly obtained business records link Manafort more directly to Putin's interests in the region.

And btw, the Trump press secretary Sean Spicer said Manafort had a very little role in the Trump campaign, which is just laughable, because he was the Trump campaign manager for 6 months, that is not a little role, it is the head of the entire campaign for half a year, so Spicer was lying too. They are all liars.

Warren Calls for Postponement Of Gorsuch Hearing Until After FBI Investigation
9:00am

O'Reilly says it is vital for the Senate to vote Gorsuch in, Warren says hold off until the FBI investigation of Trump is over.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) doesn't think the Senate should proceed forward with the Supreme Court nomination hearings as if there is no Russian smoke clouding President Trump's nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Warren noted that Gorsuch is up for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court by a President "whose campaign is under FBI investigation, for collusion w/ Russia. Lifetime court appointments can wait."

And btw, at the confirmation hearing Gorsuch said there are no Republican or Democratic judges, just judges. Now that is funny, because the Supreme Court is totally political, the 5 conservatives always vote one way and the 4 liberals always vote the other way, which is why we get all these 5 to 4 rulings. To say all judges are just judges and not political is laughable.

And Gorsuch was picked from a list that a far-right think tank gave to Trump, he was not even a Trump pick, they picked him, not Trump. He is a tool for special interest, and will be totally political if he is ever put on the court.

Elizabeth Warren - @SenWarren

I've strongly opposed the Gorsuch nomination. Giant companies don't need another Supreme Court justice to tilt the law in their favor.

4:34 PM - 21 Mar 2017

Warren's message is what all Democrats should be saying in public appearances.

This is not about revenge or even Gorsuch's stance on issues. This is about the investigation into Donald Trump's ties to Russia. What kind of insane government would sit back and allow someone under investigation for treason to appoint a lifelong position to the highest place in the third arm of the government, part of the checks and balances that are supposed to make this country work.

The founders never anticipated Congressional Republicans being willing to sell their own country out, so Congress is not functioning as a check and balance due to Republican cowardice or perhaps something more sinister.

Of course Donald Trump should not be allowed to choose someone to fill the seat that President Obama constitutionally should have filled, but didn't because Republicans blocked Obama's excellent choice for no reason.

Republicans blocked Obama's choice with no reason, but they won't block Trump's choice even though there is a good chance he is a Russian Trojan Horse.

Anyone who isn't standing with Elizabeth Warren against moving Gorsuch forward until the FBI finishes its investigation, and indeed all investigations are completed, should not be getting paid by the people to represent them.

Historian Douglas Brinkley Says Trump's First 100 Days The Worst Ever
8:00am

Questions about Russia have hung over Trump for months, but the president always has dismissed them as fake news.

That became much harder Monday after the FBI director proclaimed the Russia probe to be anything but fake.

"There's a smell of treason in the air," presidential historian Douglas Brinkley said.

"Imagine if J. Edgar Hoover or any other FBI director would have testified against a sitting president? It would have been a mind-boggling event."

Brinkley, who has published biographies of such presidents as Gerald Ford, Franklin Roosevelt and Theodore Roosevelt, said of Trump's start, "This is the most failed first 100 days of any president."

"To be as low as he is in the polls, in the 30s, while the FBI director is on television saying they launched an investigation into your ties with Russia, I don't know how it can get much worse," Brinkley said.

For Trump, Comey's testimony punctuates what has been a troubling first two months as president. His approval ratings, which were historically low at his inauguration, have fallen even further.

Gallup's tracking poll as of Sunday showed that just 39 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance, with 55 percent disapproving.

The FBI's far-reaching Russia investigation shows no sign of concluding soon and is all but certain to remain a distraction for the White House, spurring moments of presidential fury and rash tweets and possibly inhibiting the administration's ability to govern.

And O'Reilly is ignoring all of this, nothing about the Comey hearing, even though it was historic, it's the first time in history an FBI director ever went on tv and admitted to an investigation of a sitting President, nothing about Trump's crashing approval ratings, and nothing about the Trump/Russia links.

O'Reilly ignores it all, but he has time to do full segments on two illegals raping a young girl in Maryland, a law in California about people with AIDS, and Colin Kaepernick not getting picked up by an NFL team. All the big news out there and that is what O'Reilly reported on Tuesday night, what a joke.

Nunes Vanished the Night Before He Made Trump Surveillance Claims
7:00am

But of course you will never hear about any of this from O'Reilly or anyone at Fox News.

Hours before the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee announced his unproven claims about surveillance of the Trump transition team on Wednesday morning, he pretty much disappeared.

Rep. Devin Nunes was traveling with a senior committee staffer in an Uber on Tuesday evening when he received a communication on his phone, three committee officials and a former national security official with ties to the committee told The Daily Beast. After the message, Nunes left the car abruptly, leaving his own staffer in the dark about his whereabouts.

The next morning, Nunes hastily announced a press conference. His own aides, up to the most senior level, did not know what their boss planned to say. Nunes choice to keep senior staff out of the loop was highly unusual.

Nunes said he reviewed dozens of reports produced by the U.S. intelligence community that showed there was surveillance, he added. Though the surveillance was done legally, Nunes said he was alarmed that information about transition officials was widely disseminated throughout the government, and that in some cases their names were unmasked, meaning not hidden as is usually the case when when a U.S. person's information is collected through foreign surveillance.

Immediately after the press conference, Nunes went to the White House to brief the president. Afterwards, Trump said he felt somewhat vindicated by the briefing for his false claim that President Obama wiretapped him during the election. (Nunes has maintained this is not true.)

Asked to explain why he decided to brief the president, Nunes told Sean Hannity on Thursday he had done so because the information concerned him and that the president was receiving criticism from the press.

Democrats and a lot of Republicans were shocked by Nunes actions.

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, hinted at the unusual circumstances Friday during a press conference, criticizing the chairman for "what appears to be a dead of night excursion." It appears Schiff was being literal.

"All of us are essentially in the dark," Schiff told reporters Friday. "It's not just that he hasn't shared them with Democrats on the committee, he hasn't shared them with Republicans on the committee."

Conservative WSJ Says Most Americans Think Trump Is A Fake President
11:00am

Now if you listen to O'Reilly you would think only liberals, progressives, and Democrats think Trump is doing a terrible job, but this is the conservative Wall Street Journal, not the NY Times or MSNBC.

President Donald Trump's repeated lack of "respect for the truth" puts him in jeopardy of being viewed as "a fake President," The Wall Street Journal editorial board says.

"Two months into his presidency, Gallup has Trump's approval rating at 39%. No doubt Trump considers that fake news, but if he doesn't show more respect for the truth, most Americans may conclude he's a fake President," reads the editorial, which appeared online Tuesday night.

"This week should be dominated by the smooth political sailing for Trump's Supreme Court nominee and the progress of health-care reform on Capitol Hill," the editorial said. "These are historic events, and success will show he can deliver on his promises. But instead, the week has been dominated by the news that he was repudiated by his own FBI director."

The strong language in the editorial is particularly notable given the board's typically conservative outlook and the fact that the Journal is owned by Rupert Murdoch, with whom Trump has had a long relationship.

The editorial also slammed Trump for refusing to back off his administration's unsubstantiated allegations that President Barack Obama ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower.

Multiple lawmakers, including Republicans, have called on Trump to apologize to Obama for making the claim without providing any evidence.

"He has offered no evidence for his claim, and a parade of intelligence officials, senior Republicans and Democrats have since said they have seen no such evidence," the editorial board wrote. "Yet the President clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle, rolling out his press spokesman to make more dubious claims."

Asked about the editorial Wednesday morning, Texas Rep. Pete Sessions said Trump's unverified allegations do hurt his credibility.

"It does hurt," he said. "It hurts a lot not only for my party but for people to have a sobering look at what others are saying."

Top Trump Campaign Adviser Calls Tillerson A Swamp Creature
10:00am

Remember when Trump said he would drain the swamp, well it was just more lies, like everything else he promised, all lies.

Myron Ebell, the longtime climate-science denier who led President Donald Trump's Environmental Protection Agency transition team until Trump's inauguration, says Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is among the swamp creatures that have infiltrated the president's administration.

Speaking Friday at a climate conference hosted by the Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank, Ebell took issue with Tillerson voicing support for keeping the United States in the historic Paris climate agreement - a pact Trump has promised to withdraw the U.S. from.

"Rex Tillerson thinks it's really nice to be able to go to international meetings and pal around with his fellow foreign ministers," he said. "Tillerson may be from Texas and he may have been CEO of Exxon, but he's part of the swamp."

Ebell stopped just short of putting Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, in the same category of swamp creatures the president had promised to chase out of Washington.

"I'm sorry to say that we've heard that the president's daughter and son-in-law also support staying in Paris," he said. "I don't know that they really want to be identified as swamp creatures, and I'm not going to do so. But I do think that at some point it needs to be pointed out to President Trump and his administration that the people who elected Donald Trump are not wealthy Manhattanites, including his children."

"Swamp creatures are still there," Ebell said. "They are trying to infiltrate the administration, and some of them are succeeding."

Spicer's British Spying Accusations Came from Russia & Fox News
9:00am

The New York Times reported that when Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Fox News that Britain had spied on Donald Trump at the behest of President Barack Obama, he got his information from a Russian tv news show.

That information came from what people call a discredited former CIA analyst:
"This analyst, Larry C. Johnson, floated the conspiracy theory on the Russian state-sponsored news network RT on March 6, the week after Trump's original accusation that Obama was responsible for an illegal wiretap."
And this is what happened next:

On March 13, Napolitano told hosts of Fox & Friends that Obama circumvented the American intelligence community to ask "the British spying agency for transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump without American fingerprints."

Napolitano's claims were cited by White House press secretary Sean Spicer while defending Trump's baseless claims that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election.

Media Matters uncovered the link between Napolitano’s claims and an interview Johnson gave to RT and this report was confirmed by The New York Times on Friday, March 17.

Spicer ended up apologizing to Britain for his false accusation, all based on information the Russians wanted Fox News to have.

The whole fiasco could have been avoided if the Donald Trump did not use Fox News rather than U.S. intelligence agencies as its source of intelligence.

Trump said this at a joint press conference Friday with Angela Merkel:

"And just to finish your question, we said nothing. All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn't make an opinion on it. That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox. So you shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox."

Now, along with the usual blame-shifting (Fox said it, not me!) there is plenty of blame to go around, as Brian Stelter and John Harwood reported.

Obviously the judge was a very useful tool for Vladimir Putin and Russia.They used him to put out Russian propaganda.

Donald Trump not only heard what he wanted to hear, but what Vladimir Putin wanted him to hear, with predictable, and embarrassing results, not only for the White House but for the United States of America, and the American people.

Trump is a clown who gets his information from the spin doctors at Fox News, that is why he is caught in lies all the time, because he tweets about news he heard on Fox that is 90% their opinion, not real news. Then he says all the news but Fox is fake news, when it is Fox and Trump who are putting out the fake news.

He is the Fox News President, and a joke to everyone in America and the world, except a few Republicans who still support him. If Trump makes it 4 years without being impeached, he will be the worst President we have ever had.

Andrea Mitchell Reported Friday Trump Staffers Purging Their Phones
8:00am

She said that she hears there are Whitehouse staff people purging their phones of tweets and messages because they are afraid that they will be subpoenaed. Which is illegal, because they were told to save all records, and Trump was also told to stop deleting his tweets that have spelling errors.

12:55 on MSNBC- "From single source...former transition team members purging."

And of course O'Reilly and his fill-in host Eric Bolling never said a word about it, and never will.

Funny How O'Reilly Just Happened To Take Thursday & Friday Off
7:00am

During the 2 days when TrumpCare was set to be voted on the super Trump supporter Bill O'Reilly just happened to be MIA. O'Reilly took Thursday and Friday off, in the middle of the biggest vote for Trump he has ever had.

Could it be that O'Reilly knew it was going to fail, so he took Thursday off because he did not want to report on it or talk about it. Then they postpone the vote to Friday so O'Reilly has to take Friday off too.

I would bet O'Reilly took the time off to avoid having to talk about the big failure from the loser Trump. And I am betting O'Reilly will be back next Monday and totally or mostly ignore the TrumpCare failure.

This is what Bill O'Reilly does folks, he is a liar and a con man. He is a 100% Trump supporter and Republican, who ignores or spins all the bad news for Trump and the Republicans, and he does it while telling you he is a non-partisan Independent with a no spin zone.

Bill O'Reilly is a massive liar and a biased right-wing stooge for Donald Trump and the Republican party. Just watch his show, he lies and spins for Trump and the Republicans on everything, never has one good word to say about any Democrats or Liberals, has 95% right-wing guests, after saying his guest list is balanced, supports 99% of the Republican agenda, and never calls out Republicans for any of the same things he called Democrats out for under Obama.

Do not believe me, do not believe one word I write here, just watch O'Reilly for a week and tell me I am wrong. Watch his show, look at his opinions, look at how he covers the news, watch how he spins and lies for Trump, it's all right-wing spin.

Write me and tell me how many times O'Reilly slams Trump, or any Republican, it never happens. Unless it's to criticize a Republican for speaking out against Trump.

O'Reilly will be back Monday to spin and lie for Trump on the next issue, whatever it is, he will most likely barely mention how TrumpCare failed, then move on and claim the story is over, just like he did when General Flynn was fired over his Russia lies.

Two months ago O'Reilly said the Russia/Trump story is over so he moved on to other news, even though it is not over, and it's worse than ever, he still ignores it and does not do his job. Instead he spend the full hour every night spinning and lying for Trump, as if he was on the payroll, that is bias to the tenth power.

And O'Reilly screams about bias from others in the media, when he is more biased than any of them, but of course he does not see it that way, just like Trump, he can not see reality, he only sees what he wants to see, not reality.

Proof The O'Reilly Factor is Biased Against Barack Obama
O'Reilly said he is a non-partisan Independent, who is fair to both sides, and that he has been fair to Barack Obama. To check that claim I did a 3 month study of the Factor, it started on August 1st, 2008, and ran until October 31st, 2008. I watched the Factor every night and counted the negative and positive comments for Obama and McCain.

Visit the web page I set up, and you will see the stunning bias from O'Reilly and his mostly Republican guests against Barack Obama. Then you will see there is no doubt Bill O'Reilly is a dishonest and biased Conservative. This study is conclusive proof that O'Reilly is in the tank for John McCain.

Proof O'Reilly Lied About The Balance on His Show
O'Reilly claims the factor is balanced, and that he personally makes sure every week he has an equal number of Republican and Democrat guests. This is a bold faced lie, and I can prove it. I put together a web page that shows the guest list from the factor for the last 2 weeks. Read it and you will see with your own eyes that Bill O'Reilly is lying when he says the factor is balanced.

And remember that we are 3 weeks before a major Presidential election, or the Republican bias numbers would be worse than it is normally. O'Reilly is actually having more Democrats on than he usually does, and the balance is still not even close. If we were not so close to an election it would be a lot worse.

O'Reilly Sucks Investigation: Dishonesty, Deception, And Bias By Bill O'Reilly
O'Reilly claims there are no Republicans or Conservative groups that rival George Soros. O'Reilly said the top three conservative tax-exempt foundations are totally dwarfed by Soros and the radical Ford Foundation. And that they have 15 times more the assets. George Soros net worth is $8.5 billion, the Ford Foundation has a net worth of $13 billion. But the seven billionaires who donate to Newt Gingrich and other right-wing causes have a combined net worth of $34.8 billion dollars.

Somehow O'Reilly claims that Soros and the Ford Foundation have 15 times more the assets than anyone on the right. When the seven billionaires alone who give money to Newt, have roughly $14 billion more than Soros and the Ford Foundation combined.

(( Right-Wing Hate Speech Ignored by Bill O'Reilly ))
O'Reilly claims there is no hate on the right, that it's all on the left. But the way he defines hate is ridiculous, if a liberal blog or website writes an article that criticizes George W. Bush (or any Republican) O'Reilly calls it hate. When it's not hate, it's reporting the facts, there is no hate. A great example is when websites like oreilly-sucks.com, mediamatters.org, etc. criticize O'Reilly he calls it hate, and says they are hate groups who lie about him.

That is a lie, it is not hate, and they are not hate websites. There is real hate on the internet, but O'Reilly does not report it, because most of it is from the right. I have documented this hate in my blog and on a web page, all of it was ignored by Bill O'Reilly, and it was never reported on the Factor.
