Shepard Smith appeared to hate his Fox News audience. His snide comments and condescension won’t be missed by most of us.
Heck, most Fox News viewers opted out when he came on the channel.
I talked with him briefly at a Memphis rally for Senator to be Corker (I know, but he was better than Harold Ford Jr.). He promised to get his picture taken with me, but never did. That was OK, in fact I’m glad he didn’t. But that was the kind of self centered guy he is.
No one in the Fox audience will be crying over his loss.
Especially Tucker Carlson, who got in a spat with him, if you recall. Smith criticized him, saying, “Last night on this network, during primetime opinion programming, a partisan guest who supports President Trump was asked about Judge Napolitano’s legal assessment, and when he was asked, he said, unchallenged, Judge Napolitano is a fool. Attacking our colleague who’s here to offer legal assessments on our air in our work home is repugnant,” Smith said. He then listed people who agreed with Napolitano.
The next night Carlson brought on Joe DiGenova who destroyed Napolitano and criticized Smith. It is rumored Fox told Smith to knock it off.
We all remember Smith’s over the top Katrina coverage. It was a wall to wall Bush bash.
Now if only Chris Wallace would go, then Neil Cavuto and Juan Williams, Donna Brazile, Leland Vitter, Arthel Neville, Bret Baier, Chris Hahn…
Last night President Trump was on fire at his Minneapolis rally.
He straightforwardly exposed the chasm between the Deep State and American citizens. His plain spoken truth delights Americans who have had enough of political blather. Trump hopped into the impeachment fight and the exposure of the Biden family to corruption and greed. He wondered out loud if there was a “Where’s Hunter?” t-shirt expressing the media’s refusal to question the former Vice President’s son about his Ukraine shenanigans.
Shortly after that his campaign strategist, Brad Parscale, had this up on twitter:
The description reads:
Where’s Hunter? Tee
First he was fired by the Navy. Then, he made MILLIONS of dollars from overseas companies while his father was Vice President.
Now, he’s nowhere to be found! WHERE IS HUNTER BIDEN?

Mr. Midtown Republican came up with his own version:
A close up:
In the coming days many more entries and memes will be made for Hunter.
Who is the Inspector General of the Intelligence community, Michael Atkinson?
It’s a question the media doesn’t really want to get into. Why?
First, you must realize that the group Lawfare is behind all these hoaxes hoping for Trump’s impeachment. No one has delved into Lawfare like The Conservative Treehouse. Here’s their synopsis:
Not enough people understand the role of the Lawfare group in the corruption and political weaponization of the DOJ, FBI and larger intelligence community.
What Media Matters is to corrupt left-wing media, the Lawfare group is to the corrupt DOJ and FBI.
All of the headline names around the seditious conspiracy against Donald Trump assemble within the network of the Lawfare group.
Three days after the October 21st, 2016, FISA warrant was obtained, Benjamin Wittes outlined the insurance policy approach. (Read the article here: https://www.lawfareblog.com/coalition-all-democratic-forces-part-iii-what-if-trump-wins)
FBI Director James Comey, FBI Legal Counsel James Baker, Comey memo recipient Daniel Richman, Deputy AG Sally Yates, Comey friend Benjamin Wittes, FBI lead agent Peter Strzok, FBI counsel Lisa Page, Mueller lead Andrew Weissmann and the Mueller team of lawyers, all of them -and more- are connected to the Lawfare group; and this network provides the sounding board for all of the weaponized approaches, including the various new legal theories as outlined within the Weissmann-Mueller Report.
The Lawfare continuum is very simple. The corrupt 2015 Clinton exoneration; which became the corrupt 2016 DOJ/FBI Trump investigation; which became the corrupt 2017 DOJ/FBI Mueller probe; is currently the 2019 “impeachment” plan. Weissmann and Mueller delivering their report evolved the plan from corrupt legal theory into corrupt political targeting. Every phase within the continuum holds the same goal.
The current “impeachment strategy” is planned-out within the Lawfare group.
Once you understand that, it is easy to see how everything transpired.
CT further elucidates:
“The center of the 2016 Lawfare Alliance election influence was/is the Department of Justice National Security Division, DOJ-NSD. It was the DOJ-NSD running the Main Justice side of the 2016 operations to support Operation Crossfire Hurricane and FBI agent Peter Strzok. It was also the DOJ-NSD where the sketchy legal theories around FARA violations (Sec. 901) originated.”
Here’s where the ICIG, Atkinson, comes in:
Michael K Atkinson was previously the Senior Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General of the National Security Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ-NSD) in 2016. That makes Atkinson senior legal counsel to John Carlin and Mary McCord who were the former heads of the DOJ-NSD in 2016 when the stop Trump operation was underway.
Michael Atkinson was the lawyer for the same DOJ-NSD players who: (1) lied to the FISA court (Judge Rosemary Collyer) about the 80% non compliant NSA database abuse using FBI contractors; (2) filed the FISA application against Carter Page; and (3) used FARA violations as tools for political surveillance and political targeting.
Yes, that means Michael Atkinson was Senior Counsel for the DOJ-NSD, at the very epicenter of the political weaponization and FISA abuse.
If the DOJ-NSD exploitation of the NSA database, and/or DOJ-NSD FISA abuse, and/or DOJ-NSD FARA corruption were ever to reach sunlight, current ICIG Atkinson -as the lawyer for the process- would be under a lot of scrutiny for his involvement.
Yes, that gives current ICIG Michael Atkinson a strong and corrupt motive to participate with the Pelosi-Schiff/Lawfare impeachment objective. Sketchy!
It now looks like the Lawfare network constructed the ‘whistle-blower’ complaint aka a Schiff Dossier, and handed it to allied CIA operative Michael Barry to file as a formal IC complaint. This process is almost identical to the Fusion-GPS/Lawfare network handing the Steele Dossier to the FBI to use as the evidence for the 2016/2017 Russia conspiracy.
This series of events is exactly what former CIA Analyst Fred Fleiz said last week. Fleitz has extensive knowledge of the whistleblower process. Fleitz said last week the Ukraine call whistle-blower is likely driven by political motives, and his sources indicate he had help from Congress members while writing it.
CT believes the “whistle blower” is Michael Barry.
The Deep State is like a cancer with evil tentacles infecting our body politic so deeply that it is hard to excise. Even another Trump term won’t be able to heal us. Unfortunately. But it can at least stop some of the malignant spread.
While the ballot is not chock full of conservative choices, there are many races where it is necessary to cast a vote for the Republican. Here’s the party’s endorsement, with which I agree:
I will unenthusiastically cast a vote for Stickland. He’s not good, but his opponents are much worse.
I will also vote against the “Public Safety Referendum.” You know when they couch something in terms like that it’s bad.
It’s also bad because we have no assurance that the monies they collect will go toward the pensions. This is especially true since the make up of the City Council will likely change.
Don’t fall for Dr. Jeff Warren’s flyers that insist “Republicans endorse Jeff Warren.” He doesn’t say who. Some may, but he’s a liberal and will act that way.
Since the Trump campaign store has made almost a million dollars from the sale of plastic straws emblazoned with Donald Trump and since they have also successfully sold Sharpies after the tornadic fury of his map of Hurricane Dorian, here’s another suggestion.
How about a set of Ukrainian nesting dolls featuring the Biden family? There is son Hunter, who loves a good Ukrainian kickback; brother James, involved in alleged health care fraud here in Tennessee; wife Jill who pretends Joe’s groping of women and girls doesn’t happen; and Joe himself who liked to use the power of his vice presidency to force other countries to give Hunter money.
