- Why don’t we all take this weekend to boycott the politicians and spend more time with our families out doors!
ANOTHER DUST UP BETWEEN TRUMP AND FOX NEWS …
As reported at The Hill, Donald Trump has put a moratorium on Fox News interviews. Donald Trump took to Twitter and tweeted … @FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future. In essence Basically Fox News called Trump “stale” and “tiresome”. Hmm really? As the BPR opines, those are two words not normally associated with the man who energized Republican primary politics this year. Sorry, love Trump or hate him … support him, like his brashness or think he is the worst thing in the world, it is obvious these days that FOX News has become like its competitors that they have railed against in the MSM for so long. FOX News has an agenda for establishment Republicans and the Carl Rove types.
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Wednesday he will not appear on Fox News programs “for the foreseeable future,” claiming he was unfairly treated.
Trump did not detail the alleged unfair treatment.
But Fox News said the “boycott” followed its cancellation of an appearance by the outspoken real estate mogul on Bill O’Reilly’s show on Thursday.
“At 11:45 am today, we canceled Donald Trump’s scheduled appearance on The O’Reilly Factor on Thursday, which resulted in Mr. Trump’s subsequent tweet about his ‘boycott’ of FOX News,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement.
“The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about,” the statement continued.
“When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country,” the spokesperson added.
Trump targeted O’Reilly in a series of tweets on Monday night, saying O’Reilly featured the “same old Trump haters.”
Daily Commentary – Wednesday, September 23, 2015 – Donald Trump Sure Loves To Talk About His Polling Numbers
- But he doesn’t like talking about the negatives. Anyone who stands up to him is on his bad list. He currently is steering away from Fox News because he’s mad at them

Daily Commentary – Thursday, August 27, 2015 – Have You Noticed Donald Trump is Spending More time on CNN and MSNBC Lately?
- Likely due to his “flap” with Megyn Kelly. Megyn is one of Fox’s top commentators and I’m not sure if fighting for her will help or hurt Trump

HOW CLASSY … WAY TO WIN HEARTS AND MINDS …
During a live interview in Ferguson, MO amidst the unrest on the one anniversary of Michael Brown being shot by a police officer after having attacked him, some of the protesters show their true colors and classlessness by chanting “F@ck the police”. Usually paper is considered the gift of choice for a one year anniversary; however, in the case of Ferguson it is bullets and profanity.
I wonder why these brave souls can’t show their faces as they make their vulgar chants?

Mark Levine Blasts FOX News … The Big Fox News Debate ‘Wasn’t a Debate, It was a REALITY SHOW’ … They Owe America an Apology
Conservative radio talk show host Mark Levine blasts FOX News debate … its wasn’t a debate, it was a reality show.
Actually, I could not agree more. There was an agenda going on during this debate; however, it was not to get to the facts, policies and beliefs of the candidates, it was a FOX News rating agenda. It was not supposed to be about the 24 million people who watched the debate so that FOX could pat themselves on the back. This was supposed to be about getting to know the candidates and weeding some out so that there are not 17 Republicans running for the GOP nominee.
He emphasized that he’s not ‘trashing’ Fox News, despite what other headlines may say. He’s proffering his criticism as a serious person and he believes that debate questions should be pertinent to the American people.
Levin said the first hour was disastrous and pointed out that the second question was completely unfair and proceeded to debunk part of it. He also said question the abortion questions, saying that these Republican candidates were getting hammered because they are pro-life.
“When a moderator has an agenda they should at least try and conceal it somewhat,” Levin noted.
And this has nothing to do with the Megyn Kelly/Donald Trump dust up, because the entire debate was like that. WHAT THE HELL FOX? If I wanted to watch snarky moderators ask GOP candidates questions with a tone of Media Matters opposition research I would have tuned into ABC, CNN, CBS, NBC or MSNBC for that matter. I am not a Donald Trump supporter or defender, but it wasn’t just Trump that Megyn Kelly and crew aimed their snark at. To all Republicans, conservatives and Independents, review the debate that aired at 5 pm and then take a look at the one from 8 pm, they are no way the same. One was professional and informative, the one hosted by Megyn Kelly et all was nothing for than attempt to spur on a food fight.
An added note … Shame on you Erick Erickson, a paid FOX News contributor.
GOP Presidential Candidate Ben Carson from the Fox News Republican Debate … “There is No Such Thing as a Politically Correct War”
We will be showing some of the better moments from the Fox News Republican Presidential candidate debate, because trust me I have much to say later regarding this debate and FOX News. Shame on you FOX for this liberal-like gotcha, low rent, Media Matters-like opposition research attack questions that passed as a debate.
The debate can be seen HERE.
One of the individuals I thought did a fantastic job was Ben Carson …
Former neurosurgeon Ben Carson is a political outsider and one of the reasons why we love him. His matter of fact tone and answers make him a favorite amongst those who can’t stand the political-insider elite political class. As Ben Carson answers Megyn Kelly’s lame question on water-boarding, Carson hit it out of the park and started by making an interesting comment about wondering whether he was ever going to get to speak again during the debate. I had wondered the same thing. Sadly, moderators like Kelly think this was about her. Ben Carson stated, “I would not necessarily be broadcasting to everybody what we are going to do. We have gotten into this mindset of fighting politically correct wars, there is no such thing as a politically correct war.”
Carson’s comment on race relations in the United States was a home run and I believe that Martin Luther King Jr. stood up, nodded and cheered.
”There is No Such Thing as a Politically Correct War”
I would not necessarily be broadcasting to everybody what we are going to do.” We have gotten into this mindset of fighting politically correct wars, there is no such thing as a politically correct war.
Race Relations in America – (go to the 6:30 mark of video)
I was asked by an NPR reporter once, why don’t I talk about race that often? I said that is because I am a neurosurgeon.
And she thought that was a strange response. I said that when I take someone to the operating room, I am actually operating on the thing
that makes them who they are, the skin doesn’t make them who they are, the hair does not make them who they are and its time for us to move beyond that.
Our strength as a nation comes in our unity. We are the United States of America, not the divided states and those that want to destroy us are trying to divide us.
Ben Carson’s Closing Statement
I’m the only here who has separated Siamese twins. The only one to operate on babies still in the mother’s womb.
The only one to take out half of a brain, although you would think if you go to Washington that some one had beaten me to it.
Because freedom is not free and we must fight for it every day. Everyone of us must fight for it because we are fighting for our children and the next generation.
Greta Investigates … 10 Years Later, The Death and Disappearance of Natalee Holloway in Aruba … However, Monkeys Know that Joran van der Sloot Lies
On Saturday night Greta Van Susteran did a 10 year later review of the death and disappearance of Natalee Holloway on Aruba. Although there was not a lot of new material, Greta Investigates nicely summarized the case, while also having Beth Holloway and some of Natalee’s friends from that fateful trip to Aruba in 2005 talk about their lives, feelings and memories of Natalee. Its ten years later and Natalee’s friends have graduated college and are on with their lives. Sadly that is something that Natalee Holloway was never allowed to do because of a terrible chance encounter with Joran Van der Sloot on her final night in the island of Aruba. However, it seems to hardly have been a chance encounter after all.
On the 10-year anniversary of Natalee Holloway’s disappearance, “Greta Investigates” takes a new look at the teenager’s last days while on a high school graduation trip on the Caribbean island of Aruba.
Greta Van Susteren traveled to the island with Natalee’s mother Beth Holloway to investigate the bizarre twists and countless lies that have plagued this mysterious case from the start.
And you’ll learn how the teen’s suspected killer, Joran van der Sloot, was almost caught in an FBI sting operation, but instead slipped out of Aruba and fled to Peru. He is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence for killing college student Stephany Flores on the 5-year anniversary of Natalee’s disappearance.
However, when many on Aruba defended Joran Van der Sloot, an Aruba LE that was at best incompetent and at worst corrupt. An American media that was all too often more worried about the next big salacious story rather than investigative journalism as the Natalee Holloway story was the missing person case heard round the world. At times it felt like there were more media folks in Aruba than tourists. However, throughout the search for Natalee Holloway and the obstacles put up by the Aruba legal system, the police, the tourism board, the Van der Sloot family and those looking to protect Joran … Scared Monkeys knew from the beginning that Joran Van der Sloot was lying. Although Greta has done fine work over the years and continues to keep the case in the spot light to hopefully one day provide Justice for Natalee, we at Scared monkeys were never inclined to believe him. Joran Van der Sloot was a pathological liar and a sociopath.
