Sweetie, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated a ten term congressman to become the youngest member of Congress in our nation's history, and except for the 'young angry blonde' segments Faux throws your way, you're stuck over at Faux Nation with all of the other second-stringers hoping that someone falls off the couch so you can take over.

AOC has got you beat in this regard, so take that gun out of your waistband so you can sit down without shooting yourself.

Maybe it's time for Faux to brush off the dust from the declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.-- That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

So, tough for you, Faux. But as the founding fathers said, the USA is a democracy, governed by the consent of the people and you'll have to abide by their wishes. And if that means the uber-rich get taxed more, then they'll have to pay up, like it or not.

But of course. The POX dream is for Trump to win again in 2020, then for Donald Trump Junior to run in 2024 and 2028, before turning the presidency over to Ivanka in 2032 and 2036. Then what's his face... Oh yeah Eric... Can become president in 2040 and 2044. POX News loves having a President it can control.

"‘What she’s selling is bitter division’: Tucker Carlson suggests Stacey Abrams wants to ‘overthrow’ white men"

Spoiler

It was a line in Stacey Abrams’s recent writing that irked Fox News host Tucker Carlson more than anything she said in the Democratic response to Tuesday’s State of the Union.

“By embracing identity,” she wrote in Foreign Affairs magazine last week, “Americans will become more likely to grow as one.” That means, Abrams wrote, finding a better way forward for those marginalized throughout U.S. history: Women. Native Americans. African Americans. Immigrants. The LGBTQ community.

That message was on full display in Abrams’s Democratic response, with her standing in front of a multicultural group of people and rebuking the policies championed by President Trump. The 24 hours following her speech were littered with praise from Democratic heavyweights who talked about how the former Georgia gubernatorial candidate welcomed the diversity of the American identity in a way that Trump often rejects.

Carlson, however, likened the Democratic rising star to a demagogue, suggesting she wants to “overthrow” one unnamed group not included in that list of marginalized people in her Foreign Affairs article: white men.

“Unity is definitely not what Stacey Abrams is interested in — just the opposite,” Carlson said on his Wednesday show. “What she’s selling is bitter division.”

The assertion comes amid a fresh wave of criticism from the GOP, conservative media, and even Trump himself against the rising Democratic star, whom the Republican Party this week labeled “SourGrapesStacey” in the lead-up to Abrams’s response, a reminder of her unsuccessful campaign against Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) last year. That contentious race ended bitterly, with the candidates accusing each other of voter suppression. Shortly after Abrams ended her bid, a political organization backed by the candidate filed a federal lawsuit challenging how Georgia’s elections are run.

Citing her Foreign Affairs article, titled “Identity Politics Strengthens Democracy,” Carlson highlighted the former state legislator’s argument that it’s essential to identify the laws and rules in place that “proscribe, diminish, and isolate the marginalized."

“The marginalized did not create identity politics,” Abrams wrote, “their identities have been forced on them by dominant groups, and politics is the most effective method of revolt.”

Without saying it outright, Carlson, who has previously debated the merits of diversity, made a not-so-subtle insinuation that Abrams was referring to white men as the dominant group that has made it harder for marginalized people. (Abrams did not make direct mention of white men in the article.)

“The dominant are everyone who is left, so do the subtraction,” Carlson said. “That’s only one group. You know exactly who they are and so does Stacey Abrams. She says these people, these unnamed people, are responsible for the suffering of everyone else, and we need to overthrow them. She uses the language of violence and war to describe what must come next. ... People get hurt in revolts. That’s the nature of revolts. Stacey Abrams knows that. She wants one anyway, she doesn’t hide it."

The Fox News host argued that Abrams and Democrats are “inventing a common enemy that everyone can oppose,” accusing them of telling Americans to “hate their neighbors for the color of their skin.”

“We’re in this together, we’re all Americans,” Carlson said. “That’s the most important thing, really the only important thing. Stacey Abrams doesn’t see it that way, neither do the leaders of her party." He concluded: “No election is worth the hatred and the division of identity politics, not if you plan to live here anyway.”

The right-wing criticism of Abrams this week started even before she made her 11-minute response Tuesday. In the time leading up to her address, a barrage of tweets and videos from the Republican National Committee, GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and other related groups tagged the “failed" Abrams as “SourGrapesStacey,” a nod to the nicknames often given by Trump to his political adversaries.

Abrams’s response also got the attention of the president himself. Trump told a group of reporters at the White House on Wednesday that he didn’t think Abrams could unseat Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) if she chose to challenge the first-term senator next year.

“I think it’s a mistake for her to run against him because I don’t think she can win," Trump said on Wednesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “David Perdue is an incredible senator, if you remember, and will be very hard to beat.”

But Abrams was widely praised for her performance on Tuesday by Democratic leadership, presidential contenders, and possible presidential contenders. Dan Pfeiffer, a former senior adviser for President Barack Obama and co-host of the liberal podcast “Pod Save America,” went as far as to say that Abrams “should run for President.” But perhaps the most notable praise came from former vice president Joe Biden, another possible 2020 contender.

“Stacey Abrams achieved in a matter of minutes something Donald Trump failed to do in over an hour,” Biden tweeted, “to embrace and give voice to the spirit and core values that make America great.”

Cindy McCain made up a heroic story about how she stopped child trafficking but apparently nobody was trafficking anybody, she just racially profiled some family or something.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/cindy-mccain-apologizes-after-police-refutes-her-story-of-stopping-human-trafficking-at-airport

I don't see her apologizing to whoever she falsely accused of being a criminal, or for lying that she stopped child trafficking.

This is just a "sorry if my experience makes you less likely to sic the cops on random people you see"

Doesn't Tucker ever get tired of crying in his beer about the oppression wealthy white men like him must endure?  :pb_rollseyes:

"Fox News is finally getting its national emergency"

Spoiler

Burned by his negotiating failures with Congress, President Trump on Friday morning declared a national emergency to get the money to build his border wall. In doing so, Trump will put the worldview of his favorite hosts on Fox News, who for years have declared immigration and the southwestern border a national emergency, into action.

How much of an emergency? Just look at the transcripts of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” where immigrants star as hardened criminals and distributors of grime.

“It’s indefensible, so nobody even tries to defend it," said Carlson in December, in reference to immigration policy. "Instead, our leaders demand that you shut up and accept this. We have a moral obligation to admit the world’s poor, they tell us, even if it makes our own country poor and dirtier and more divided.”

Upwards of 20 advertisers reacted to these hateful remarks by announcing their withdrawal from “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” It seemed like this was a moment when the network might just back off, to acknowledge that the host went a bit too far. Such apologetic corrections do issue from the No. 1 cable-news network from time to time.

But no, not in connection with an immigration dispute. “We cannot and will not allow voices like Tucker Carlson to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” read a Fox News statement. Never back down on immigration. Because it’s a national crisis and has been for a long time — at least according to Fox News. Fox News prime-timers such as Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham might disagree on, say, tax policy or the role of the regulatory state or, perhaps, social issues. Yet they’re all hard-liners when it comes to immigration. The issue has become the litmus test that defines whether someone is a Fox News personality.

Pluck from a hat the year 2007, when a congressional compromise on immigration reform failed in part because of rhetoric — including on his radio show — from Hannity. In July of that year, then-host Bill O’Reilly recited the network’s casual disdain for certain immigrants. “Most people watching us right now ... don’t want to hurt any poor Mexican people. They don’t want to hurt them. You know, they want to know who they are. They want to know where they are, what they’re doing. They don’t want them clustering in neighborhoods and changing the tempo of the whole neighborhood. They don’t want certainly crimes being committed by people here illegally,” said O’Reilly.

On the network’s prime-time block — anchored until April 2017 by O’Reilly himself — those casually racist words typified the Fox News ethos on immigration. These people disrupt our communities; they make things dirtier; they commit crimes.

Bold and underline that last one: O’Reilly and the rest of the Fox News opinionators went full throttle whenever they could pin a crime on an undocumented immigrant, a strain of Fox News programming that hit its peak with the killing of Kate Steinle on a San Francisco pier in July 2015. An undocumented immigrant who had been deported five times was charged with — and eventually acquitted of — murder in the case. But not before Fox News demagogued it into the country’s front-burner issue of law and order. “It was San Francisco’s sanctuary city policies that killed Kate Steinle,” said Hannity in November 2017.

Consider that Carlson himself rebuked Trump in January 2018 when the president appeared inclined to accept congressional compromises on immigration. “President Trump, you’ll remember, ran for office promising to fix immigration, make good deals and, in general, do a better job than the corrupt, incompetent lawmakers, he said, were wrecking the country. And he was right, they were wrecking the country,” said the host. “And yet, today, in a remarkable twist, the president held a televised meeting with the very swamp creatures he once denounced. He told them he trusted them to craft immigration policy without his input.”

The message: Don’t compromise. That approach, indeed, has characterized Trump’s work on the issue over the past year or so. He appeared ready to sign on to a government funding bill in December but then backtracked after folks such as Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter complained that it didn’t contain funding for his border wall. So he shut the government down for 34 days.

Now he’s declaring the national emergency for which Hannity advocated. On his Tuesday night program, Hannity was cycling through the ways that Trump could get his wall funds — first by signing a bill with $1.375 billion for border fencing, then by scrounging around for other funds. “But the important third step needs to happen simultaneously. And that would be the president would need to declare a national emergency. This is the time. That is a necessity,” said Hannity, whose influence on the cable-newsaholic president has earned him the title of “shadow” chief of staff at the White House.

It sure is, Trump said with his declaration of a national emergency. Years and years of hatred and hype on Fox News have prevailed.
