Post Fox News Watch (Oh the Humanity!)
.
.
Fox News top headline this morning:

JUST FEET AWAY
Small group breaks from caravan, within 500 feet of US border, report says

First paragraph:
"A group of about 150 migrants carrying white flags that read, "La paz y Dios," or "Peace and God are With Us," separated from the larger caravan near Southern California and inched within 500 feet of the U.S., a report Thursday said."

----------

Oh, boy. We're in trouble now. 150 unarmed people have "inched" close to the border of the foremost superpower on the planet in broad daylight.
Hide the women and children! Prepare the nuclear launch codes! Contact the nearest SSBN!

We're raising a nation of cowards.

Nothing. Nothing about France on Fox News main page. Nothing. Would it surprise anyone if the overwhelming majority of Trump's loyal base didn't give a tinker's damn about France? Maybe not.

The proletariat is serious and I don't blame them. The gas tax is unfair because it has a severe impact on people who barely making ends meet and none on those flying around in private jets. But the gas tax is only the catalyst — problems there are much deeper.

Maybe Fox News fears the trouble could spill over to the U.S. and Trump may have to do something Presidential... not his strong suit.

I maintain the economic woes of France much resemble those that sparked the revolution of 1789. An unconscionable, quasi-legal advantage maintained by a small percentage of the population resulting in an unsustainable mis-distribution of wealth. Yep, the same problem we have.

I'm anticipating...

Occupy Wall St. II
The Movement Finds a Clue

Eric Trump blasts Kellyanne Conway’s husband for showing ‘disrespect’ towards wife

Because the Trump men are all about respecting their wives. You can't make this stuff up. I think Eric just wants an SNL skit of his own.

If you have time (a lot of time) look at this article on Fox News:

Former Trump administration officials: A list of notable departures

foxnews.com/politics/former-trump-admin ... departures

Didn't make it all the way to the end yet. It's a bit like reading Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past (In Search of Lost Time.)

BOMBERS IN THE BACKYARD
Russia mum after sending 2 nuclear-capable bombers to Venezuela

foxnews.com/world/russia-sends-two-bomb ... lationship

Trump is about to cave on the Monroe Doctrine — coward that he is. I'm no fan of JFK but at least he put his foot down when it came to the Soviets bringing nuclear delivery systems to the Western Hemisphere.

Putin is massing forces on the Ukrainian border and sending nuke capable bombers to Venezuela. What next? If Xi Jinping asks him nicely Trump may let him take Taiwan.. and his love affair with Kim will end with China making North Korea nuclear capable. Everytime I think the man's hit rock bottom he lowers the bar.

For some reason it bugs me when the first line of the post abuts the title of the thread, so I drop it 2 lines. I raise the pica to 110% so I don't need my reading glasses. And you guys can call me Lou.

Giuliani on whether Trump will sit down with Mueller: "Good luck -- over my dead body"


Asked whether Trump -- who has already provided written responses to inquiries from the special counsel -- would meet with Mueller, Giuliani responded, "Yeah, good luck, good luck -- after what they did to Flynn, the way they trapped him into perjury, and no sentence for him." (Mueller has recommended Flynn receive no jail time, and Flynn is set to be sentenced Dec. 18.)

He added: "Over my dead body. But, you know, I could be dead."

--------
With Rudy for his lawyer it's Trump who's dead.

Dems, White House refuse to budge over border wall as Friday shutdown looms

foxnews.com/politics/dems-white-house-r ... down-looms

Trump didn't own a shutdown in front of the Dems, a national audience, God and everybody without a plan, right? He has to have a plan. He's shutting down National Parks and every monument in DC over the Christmas Holiday? No, he must have a plan.

Conservative media challenge Trump on border wall, Syria pullout
— Fox News 12/21/2018


Behind the scenes of the Mattis bombshell: More resignations expected after ‘protest’ exit
foxnews.com/politics/behind-the-scenes- ... otest-exit

Who does he think he is? I'm the President! Mattis is only Sec. Def., that means I'm smarter than him! I'm a stable genius! Mattis should agree with me! His resignation is a WIN for the U.S, Big WIN!
---------
"As a lieutenant, Mattis served as a rifle and weapons platoon commander in the 3rd Marine Division. As a captain, he was assigned as the Naval Academy Preparatory School's Battalion Officer, commanded Rifle and Weapons Companies in the 1st Marine Regiment, then Recruiting Station Portland, Oregon, as a major.

Mattis is a graduate of the U.S. Marine Corps Amphibious Warfare School, U.S. Marine Corps Command and Staff College, and the National War College. He is noted for his interest in the study of military history and world history, with a personal library that once included over 7,000 volumes, and a penchant for publishing required reading lists for Marines under his command.[31][32] He is known for the intellectual rigor he instills in his Marines, risk management, and requiring his Marines to be well-read in the culture and history of regions where they are deployed. Before deploying to Iraq, Mattis had his Marines undergo cultural sensitivity training."

Ancient Antarctic ice sheet collapse could cause a global flood
foxnews.com/science/ancient-antarctic-i ... diate=true

From Fox News Comments page:

fan24RC
"The eco-radicals like to forget about past changes...like when CO2 was 5X what it is now....and supposedly man hadn't walked the planet yet. That's why dinosaurs got to tremendous size....massive abundance of food."

eelanad
"This attempt at scaremongering fails to mention that the ice on the other side of the Antarctic continent is increasing at record rates.
Does anyone think that the ice on the other side is causing the ice on the west side to be pushed or raised which allows water inclusion under the ice to cause all this movement?"

nastyrumor
"'the risks involved if the sheet ─ which originally disappeared 125,000 years ago because of a changing climate ─ were to collapse'"....125,000 years ago? Hmmm, last time I check we were not burning fossil fuels back then, and certainly were not capable of affecting climate change."

Whoritesthis
"Really this is the next disaster to worry about? Lets ignore the fact that NASA said the planet is actually starting to cool. Along with the fact that this ice sheet grew ~1.2 million square feet in November alone, which is summer time in the southern hemisphere. No reports about the hole in the earth crust which is draining the oceans. So with the ice sheet growing, the oceans draining to the center of the earth and the planet getting cooler, if only some smart person could think of a way to warm the Earth up. Enjoy your SUVs and trucks! Merry Christmas!"
