~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
Sean Hannity and Jorge Ramos clashed early and often in a contentious interview on the Fox News personality’s program Wednesday evening over — who else? — Donald Trump.
Hannity opened the two-part segment by referring to Ramos’ accusations of racism against Trump as “offensive,” blasting him for being “fundamentally unfair” for taking Trump’s quotes about undocumented immigrants out of context.
“I’m simply reporting what Donald Trump has been saying,” said Ramos, who one week earlier similarly butted heads with Bill O’Reilly on his show.
“That’s not true!” Hannity replied.
Ramos then referred to Trump’s comments last June that Mexican immigrants are drug traffickers, criminals and rapists, saying, “he’s absolutely wrong.” Hannity took issue with that characterization, remarking that Trump had indeed referred to only some of the immigrants…
Beck acknowledged that he has a lot of listeners who believe he is wrong about Trump, but Beck insisted, ‘it’s hard to say you espouse conservative principals and small-government principals when you are saying that you think [the] Canadian health care system works and is wonderful.’
When asked if Trump, who is leading in every state and national poll, is ‘right or wrong on immigration,’ Beck, who used the border crisis as an opportunity to bash conservatives, simply replied that he did not believe that Trump was ‘anti-immigrant or anti-Mexican or [anti] Hispanic in any way….’
Simon also asked Beck if the debate on immigration would end up “insulting Hispanic voters.”
Beck’s response, “No, I don’t. I don’t. I had a conversation with Sean Hannity this week, who’s a big Trump supporter. And, you know, I said, my biggest problem – and this is saying something, coming from Glenn Beck, I think, for a lot of people who view Glenn Beck as the clown or the monkey on TV – but we have a real serious issue with civility. And as long we’re civil, I think debate, vigorous debate, is good for everyone.” http://www.npr.org/player/embed/433677408/433735830

It’s no mistake that Beck in final response to Simon mentioned Sean Hannity and “civility”.
On August 14th, Beck posted a note on his Facebook page during which he questioned the logic of “big name ‘conservatives’” getting behind Donald Trump.
Why are big name ‘conservatives’ supporting him? I get it if you are tired of politicians, a republican progressive, or you are only about winning (although those who say they would NEVER vote for him is over 50% of REPUBLICANS). Perhaps you are angry and you just want to make someone pay or just want something done and you don’t care how it gets done, but what PRINCIPLES does he have that they are attracted to?
I am not talking about the average Joe, I am talking about Sean Hannity or Ann Colter. How about Savage or Rush?
These are smart people. What am I missing? Just based on his favorability ratings he could never win in a general. Research shows that he may be near his ceiling now….
A few days later, addressing the attributes of every candidate and after pointing out that is he is presently “personally UNDECIDED as to whom I will support in the GOP primaries,” Sean Hannity on his website penned a lengthy response addressing every point raised by Beck in his Facebook post and more. (I will not bother with excerpts since every word of Hannity’s response is a must read.)
The following morning (Monday) Beck mentioned the Hannity/Beck friendly discourse to his listeners during his radio program
‘There are many candidates that will not come on my show because they don’t like me. And they know that I will express and assert my opinion and push back, not in an interview way, but push back as a citizen. That’s not what Sean does,’ Glenn said….
Hannity and Beck then went head to head later that evening on Fox/Hannity (see below).
It appears that a Twitter brawl broke out earlier today between Sean Hannity, ISIS’ Jihadi John and Twitter followers. (I wonder what role the State Department played in this social media fracas. Oh wait, the Obama administration wants to give the barbarians jobs).
God bless America. America has your back @seanhannity.
@seanhannity is getting harassed on Twitter by Jihad John!!! We got your back, Sean!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Fox News Sean Hannity went another round Monday night with Anjem Choudary, the UK’s radical imam on the heels of Choudary’s arrest last week in a counter-terrorism raid. As usual, the discussion with the rabble-rouser was heated.
‘Rather than argue — you’ve been on the show twice before — how about I ask you a question, I’ll give you 20 seconds uninterrupted to answer,’ Hannity began. ‘First question, you refuse to [condemn] the beheading of innocent people — James Foley, the other individuals that were beheaded by ISIS. My question is very simple, why would you hold innocent people responsible… for something they themselves did not do.’
Choudary argued the information that is disseminated is “biased” and the terrorists holding people hostage are willing to ‘exchange them….’
Yesterday on her Facebook page, Sarah Palin called for the impeachment Barack Hussein Obama the imperial disaster.
Obama is bringing this nation to its knees, overwhelming the system and the United States cannot stand for much more. We are being pulled apart at the seams. This is treachery and Barack Obama must be held accountable. Palin is right. “It is time to impeach.”
It’s time to take action and do what we can to stop this imperial President. That includes the House doing its job and considering impeachment. I’m taking a stand and hope you will join me. Use your voice; call your Congressman today! We’ll be speaking to you directly more often in the near future like this – stay tuned. Thank you for being in this fight! Together we’ll take our country back!
Palin doubles down last night on Sean Hannity.
Enough is enough is right. Obama’s lawlessness must be reined in. Let us get this ball rolling.
Many Black Americans Come Out In Defense Of Cliven Bundy As Whites Duck & Cover
This black American man (Bundy bodyguard) says Bundy is not a racist and would take a bullet for him:
‘Mr. Bundy is not a racist,’ he told CNN. ‘Ever since I’ve been here, he’s treated me with nothing but hospitality. He’s pretty much treating me just like his own family.’ ‘I would take a bullet for that man if need be. I look up to him just like I do my own grandfather,’ he added. ‘I believe in his cause and after having met Mr. Bundy a few times….
The media distorts information to the point of social division. This is a photo of myself and the resilient, often charismatic, and maybe not so tactful Cliven Bundy. He’s a cowboy and a helluva family man, not an orator. One thing he definitely isn’t – a racist. I found his comments to not only be NOT racist, but his own view of his experiences. Who the heck are we to determine another man’s perspective on the world around him?
…The way the left slings around the race card has a specific purpose. It shuts down debate. It takes focus off the awful “recovery.” It buys time for more stories about the wonders of Obamacare. More importantly, it keeps the 95 percent black Democratic vote flowing — without which the Democrats cannot win at the presidential level.
Why can’t conservatives who ‘support Bundy’ say: ‘Even if I conceded his remarks were ‘racist,’ it nothing to do with his land dispute. Again, Bundy described the unintended consequences of government dependency. He described what sociologists call the underclass. Didn’t the liberal Daniel Patrick Moynihan warn about the rise in single-parent households? If Bundy truly ‘hated’ blacks he would be encouraging this very dependency…’
…But right on cue Sean Hannity denounced Bundy’s remarks: ‘His comments are beyond repugnant to me. They are beyond despicable to me. They are beyond ignorant to me….People that, for the right reasons, saw this case as government overreach — now are like, branded because of the ignorant, racist, repugnant, despicable comments of Cliven Bundy!’ Oh, please.
Racism. Racism. Racism. Water’s wet, sky’s blue, the media love outing white “bigots” — especially if they are male, old, Republican, Christian and — ideally — Southern. Even a Southerner who votes Democratic, like Paula Deen, will do nicely….
Black Conservatives speaking up for Cliven Bundy when the usual suspects and even some of those tough talking Conservatives who apparently do suffer from an extreme case of which guilt are running for the nearest exits. God bless America….and honesty!!!!
