Hilarious and brilliant, Emerald. What a great read for Monday morning. 🎯

My favorite line, "... the same way the porn industry attracts troubled kids from broken homes." 😂

Best start to a Monday since V-E Day! (which may or may not have been on a Monday. Alternate punch line: The Japanese tried to surrender with the tried and true Friday "news dump" maneuver. Had it worked --- it didn't --- we might not have found out that WWII had ended until the day that the Korean War started).

Actually, I belatedly realize, it is a Tuesday morning. But it is a "Monday" morning to those of us who work for a living (yesterday having been a federal holiday).

Oh yeah, Tuesday! 🤦‍♀️

Verbate indeed. Thanks for watching Fox News so I don’t have to. Gotta give the Left credit though when they coined the name “Faux News.” I stopped watching when they called AZ for Brandon - strangely I don’t miss it since finding and following so many real data driven news sources on substack, Epoch Times, Brownstone Institute, Coffee & Covid, Kirsch and his VSRF, and thank God for FLCCC. Thanks, Emerald! 💯💯💯

There's nothing to miss. We can sum it all up by saying, with sadness, that Greg Gutfeld (superb on his Red-Eye show ten years ago) has turned into a pompous ass. His "celebrityness" has gone on the express elevator right to his head. A shame. Truly a shame.

Wonder what’s going to happen to Tucker, I don’t watch him anymore either. Never liked Hannity - low IQ, always talking about himself, always tried to ride on the coattails of Rush, as if he had even 1/100th of the man’s intellect.

Yeah, I can't stand Hannity. Can't listen to him for one complete sentence. There are many problems with him, but one of them is that you always know what he's going to say before he says it. So why listen? And the whole Ukraine situation has wonderfully identified all the closet (or not so closet) NeoCons working for Fox News.

I'm afraid I can't answer your question. I so rarely watch any TV because I never think about watching it, after swearing off the stuff around the year 2000 (save athletic events with the sound permanently turned off).

Not to mention with Hannity…so obnoxious and rude! I signed off on him long before I quit Fox News after the election. With my SiriusXM app I do listen to Tucker on on the phone and I appreciate him mightily.

We stopped watching Fox, like many others, in November 2020. We mostly watched The Five anyway, even as it made us mad when they hired Cheater Donna, in the pretense of keeping things 'fair and balanced'. Can't tell you how many times we clicked off when Juan Williams started one of his arrogant spiels. We have never missed any of it.

Then we decided to check out Tucker on Fox Nation as a way to keep track. We refer to it is opposition research. He does interview good people and a lot of good info is shared. There are also very interesting documentaries too. Maybe they do more because you have to pay to watch?

I can't stop wondering though - what is the point of allowing Tucker to do what appears to be deep dives? I can't help feeling Fox is playing us. They lost a lot of conservative viewers after the election. Surely that was a wake up call. Maybe it's just a business decision to play both sides? I do wonder why Tucker hasn't been willing to interview Dinesh D'Sousa.

Yes, you’re right. Tucker hasn’t said anything about 2000s mules. I wonder why? What’s going on with that guy? We stopped watching Fox News in November 20 20. Sandra Smith is unconscionable and a closet Lib. I don’t need that in my life. We’ve gone to other sources and have enjoyed them very much. Epoch news, Emerald Robinson, Dr. Naomi Wolf....all sorts of articles from friends mailed to us from all over the world. Non of our so called GOP “leaders” have addressed this issue of massive voter fraud of 2020.... what’s to say it’s not going to happen in 2022 or 2024? are we prepared? Another thing I do to Monday, Wednesday and Friday is call my senators and my congressman. It seems that every day I open up Brierbart news and OANN I am faced with a new debacle that this administration is pushing. Or portraying. I call them and leave either a message for Lindy or with Tim Scott’s office....ALSO, Joe Wilson. they do have a live young person taking my complaints. Those poor people. They do get a piece of my mind.

Vomited out cable 10 years ago - first because I saw no point in paying for programming with copious advertising - then as YouTube took control I checked into Fox, Newsmax etc. until they all

Merged into a corrupt fog - I kept with Tucker until 2000 mules and his chicken run. Murdock has always been one dimension removed from Satan - the uglier he gets the more evil he and his family of familiars become. I watch Bannon but as a technologists I put most of the show on silent and refuse to salivate over the slippers - most of the show is an infomercial. Epox and Emerald is my info channel but even with Epox one must be careful as probable young reporters don’t parse their writing.

Once again, Emerald, you are right on target. I don't watch FOX News any more, at least not after November 3, 2020. I will watch the occasional Tucker Carlson, however even he is wishy-washy on the 2020 election steal.

"This leads to my final point: the only reason to watch Sandra Smith is because you want to get your information from someone who knows less than you do."

Thank God there are journalists like you, Emerald, who persue the truth to the abandonment of rhetoric.

More excellent reporting Emerald. It supports my position to dump Fox and NewsMax months ago. Bravo to MO Brooks for dropping the hammer on that fool.

It will never blow over. I will never forgive them for their lies, for stealing the election.

Sandra Smith is yet another nail (certainly as dumb as) under Emerald’s deadly accurate hammer. Justly deserved hit with a nice touch of wit. Touché!

Hilarious and on-point as usual! I watched that interview yesterday and just cursed Paul Ryan throughout while admiring Trump more by the day as he had to navigate the viciousness on a minute-by-minute basis for FIVE years. G-d damn Fox News and G-d bless Substack for attracting true talent in the free market.

Expand full comment

Heh. Yeah. I saw that. Mo Brooks was fantastic. I never watch this woman on the teevee, but it was pretty clear that she's a dumb illiterate commie-lib robotically following FoxNews corporate orders to sneer at the evidence, and there is masses of it, of election fraud in 2020. None of which has been reviewed by the courts merely because for perfectly rational reasons of their own (courts have no armies), courts prefer to stay as far away from this particular kind of dispute as possible. Trump's a hero for continuing to press it. Because with faked, ballot stuffed elections and rigged voting machines the Left will get their dearest wish of eliminating democracy so as to implement their imperial will. For sneering little dictatorial twerps such as Justin Trudeau to get their way, which is to dictate as King, imagining that they can manipulate and change others. And "the economy."

In tribute, this is sent in:

Pelosi Nancy In Chappaquiddick Fixing Flat Tire When Husband Busted in CA For DWI

[05/30/22. Nancy's press release threw her own husband underneath the family bus, fresh back from the repair shop after Paul crashed it two weeks ago.]

Paul Pelosi, husband of the Cadaver of The House of Representatives, was busted for DWI late Friday night. Weird Nancy Press Release quickly reminded the United States of America that Nancy was in Massachusetts at the time, busy changing a flat tire in Chappaquiddick, and therefore had nothing to do with it.

It gets better! Daily Mail (05/30/22):

"The couple own [sic: "couple" is singular; s/be "owns"] a vineyard in Napa, in addition to a home in nearby San Francisco, but she does not drink, according to previous statements given by her representatives."

According to multiple videos, she's been bombed out of her gourd in public, quite often.

Imagine having to take a breathalyzer test when you're standing in a VINEYARD (the crash site. Vehicles went through barriers and into a vineyard field. Paul's lawyers are now preparing a legal defense that Paul failed the test because he was covered with crushed grapes that his car had smushed).

Sandra Smith: Previously seen in the Human League 80s video hit, "Don't You Want Me" --- singing, "I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, that much is true ... but even then I knew I'd find a much better place --- at Fox News!"

Then after getting the ax, she sings the male singer's lines!

"Don't --- DON'T you want me?!"

And speaking of snake-oil media types:

TV Listing (05-31-22): "Holey Moley 8 p.m. on WABC7."

NOTHING says "Joe Tessitore" (ESPN gerbil) like "Game Show"!

He's miscast. There's no need for a game show host to brown-nose the contestants.

It gets better! Paul Pelosi as a teenager crashed his car and (well, not better) in so doing, got his brother killed. The "Better" is that until now, all of this has been kept under wraps. Compassion? Sorry. Not for the people who have assassinated California and want to do the same for the other 49 states.
