Opinion| Despite the best efforts of the mainstream print and broadcast media, President Trump’s approval rating remains higher than Barack Obama’s did at the same stage of their presidencies.
For Fox News’ upper management, the prospect of another four years of Trump’s Main Street economic growth agenda is just not compatible with the interests of the multinational Wall Street economy they support.
Something has to be done.
Enter the realignment we’re watching take place at Fox News – despite the network’s massive profits compared to the meager earnings of CNN and MSNBC.
First, Judge Jeanine Pirro was silenced for making this factually-based opening statement at the start of her Saturday show:
President Trump was right when he said the democrat party is now the anti-Israel party. Don’t forget Nancy, history has proven over and over when you appease to anti-Semitic sentiment, the worst happens. #OpeningStatement pic.twitter.com/vrnzhcu95o

Then Fox News announced the signing of former Democratic operative and DNC chair, Donna Brazile, to distract viewers and waste valuable airtime on shows like Hannity where important revelations in defense of President Trump are being made virtually every night.
Instead of hard-hitting journalism we were forced to endure 12:24 of drivel that listeners will never get back back.
Remember, this is the same Donna Brazile who openly lied to Megyn Kelly. RedState.com sets the stage:
One of the windfalls of the Wikileaks publication of emails pilfered from the DNC was the revelation that then-CNN contributor and current DNC co-chair (take a moment and savor that career path and tell me the press is not a Democrat preserve) had access to at least one question that was going to be asked of Hillary Clinton in a town hall and she sent that question to Hillary’s campaign. This would seem to be unethical conduct of the lowest sort. Not only was Brazile interceding to help her favored candidate she also betrayed the trust of her employer and her colleagues.
Why viewers shouldn’t expect more of the same in the runup to the 2020 election has not been explained by Fox. After all, disinformation has become the mainstream media’s currency.
Next came the announcement that UniParty member Paul Ryan was named to the Board of Directors of Fox News. Ryan openly worked against President Trump both before and after his election.
Significantly, both Ryan and Brazile are pro-open borders, something that aligns with the policy interests of Fox’s owner, Rupert Murdoch.
In fact, Ryan worked diligently to block funding for President Trump’s border wall as well as much needed reform of our immigration laws while refusing to give up the speakership even though he had announced his retirement from Congress. Trojan horse?
As for Murdoch:
This continued throughout the campaign, as Fox’s moderators failed to ask Rubio a single substantive question about his desire to enact the open-borders trade and immigration policies endorsed by Fox News’s founder Rupert Murdoch.
Fox News’s founder, Rupert Murdoch, is a co-chair of what is arguably one of the biggest immigration lobbying firms in the country, The Partnership for a New American Economy. Via his lobbying firm, Murdoch has endorsed Rubio’s 2013 amnesty bill, as well as Rubio’s 2015 immigration expansion bill. Murdoch has also endorsed President Obama’s trade agenda, which Rubio has said would be the “second pillar” of a President Rubio’s three-pillar foreign policy strategy. – Breitbart News (February 3, 2016)
It must also be remembered that in 2013 Fox News worked behind the scenes to facilitate the Senate’s comprehensive immigration reform platform. Additionally, a year later, Murdoch himself advocated for Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio as the preferred candidates in 2016, using Megyn Kelly to achieve their objective. Yes, it is all one unfortunate, political and ideological continuum. – Sundance @ the Conservative Treehouse
For those who don’t normally read the links, consider doing so for the previous paragraph to get a deeper understanding of how Murdoch was/is using Fox News as an unofficial Super-PAC to advance his open borders immigration/Wall Street multionalist agenda.
We’re soon to be on our own. We should all pray for President Trump. We’re not likely to see another authentic American run for the presidency in our lifetimes.
