Fox News Prime Time Ratings DOMINATE CNN and MSNBC Democratic Town Halls

Fox News’ Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson dominated Monday night’s ratings, beating out both an MSNBC town hall with Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand and CNN’s town hall with candidate Elizabeth Warren.

The Daily Caller reports:

Carlson more than doubled the MSNBC town hall with Gillibrand, both in total viewers with approximately 3.1 million viewers tuning in, and with 570,000 in the key 25-54 age demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. Gillibrand’s town hall, by comparison, garnered only 1.2 million viewers and 224,000 in the key age range.

Hannity also more than doubled the ratings of CNN’s 9 p.m. town hall with Warren–with 2.9 million viewers and 494,000 in the 25-54 target audience.

Spygate: GOP Intel Cmte Members Seeking Subpoenas in FBI Bias Investigation

Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee are seeking to subpoena “about a dozen” individuals connected to allegations of political bias within the FBI according to ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA).

Speaking to Fox News’ Sean Hannity last night, Nunes said, “We are going to continue to call people in for interviews. Just last week, the new chairman of the committee said that he is going to reopen the Russia investigation. We offered about a dozen subpoenas of people that we wanted to subpoena. We don’t expect for them to subpoena the people that we want, but at every attempt that we can, at every opportunity that we get, we will make attempts to subpoena these people to come in and speak.”

The Washington Examiner points out:

Nunes, the ranking member of the committee, cautioned he has little hope in Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., taking him up on the request made during last week’s closed business meeting, but he stressed that plans are moving forward regardless to investigate alleged political bias in the FBI.

…He also said the GOP minority will ask people to come in voluntarily and speak.

In January, Nunes told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that he and his Republican colleagues will continue to investigate allegations of bias and misconduct within the FBI, and even make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.

While the Congressman would not name anyone specific, Carlson suggested former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Director James Comey as possible candidates for criminal referrals.

Nunes also said that he doesn’t think much will get accomplished with the referrals until a new attorney general is in place.

“Don’t forget, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) actually made a referral on Christopher Steele–the British agent who worked for the Clinton campaign. He was referred. Nothing is happening to him,” he said. “So, I think until there’s a new AG that gets in there and starts to clean this up, I think its going to be tough for the American people to have confidence in what’s happening over there.”

Report: Border Patrol Seizes Enough Fentanyl to Kill 57 Million, Largest Bust in History


U.S. Border Patrol seized 254 pounds of fentanyl in Nogales, AZ on Saturday, which is enough to kill 57 million people.

The powerful drug was discovered inside a tractor-trailer during an inspection at the port of entry after a scan indicated something else was in the load, according to Nogales CBP Port Director Michael Humphries.

Fox News correspondent Hillary Vaughn joined host Tucker Carlson last night where she detailed the discovery made by Border Patrol.

“They found 114 kilograms of fentanyl. According to the DEA, just two milligrams is considered a lethal dose. They also grabbed 179 kg of methamphetamine and one gram of fentanyl in pill form,” she said.

Vaughn continued, “The street value for the fentanyl over $102 million. The CBP officers arrested the smuggler, a Mexican national who attempted to drive the drugs across the border. The suspect was a part of the DHS’s trusted traveler program called FAST, that stands for free and secure trade for commercial vehicles. The program started after 9/11.”

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid and is 80-100 times more powerful than morphine. According to the CDC, U.S. overdose rates linked to synthetic opioids increased 45 percent from 2016 to 2017.

President Trump says building a wall along the southern border would help combat the flow of illegal drugs pouring into the U.S.

During his recent speech on border security, the President said, “Our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs, including meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl. Every week, 300 of our citizens are killed by heroin alone, 90 percent of which floods across from our southern border. More Americans will die from drugs this year than were killed in the entire Vietnam War.”

Devin Nunes: We Will Make Criminal Referrals in FBI Misconduct Investigation



Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said that despite losing control of the House of Representatives to Democrats, he and his Republican colleagues will continue to investigate allegations of bias and misconduct within the FBI, and even make criminal referrals to the Department of Justice.

Speaking to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last night, Nunes said, “We’re going to make several referrals.”

While the Congressman would not name anyone specific, Carlson suggested former FBI agent Peter Strzok and former FBI Director James Comey as possible candidates for criminal referrals.

Nunes also said that he doesn’t think much will get accomplished with the referrals until a new attorney general is in place.

“Don’t forget, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) actually made a referral on Christopher Steele–the British agent who worked for the Clinton campaign. He was referred. Nothing is happening to him,” he said. “So, I think until there’s a new AG that gets in there and starts to clean this up, I think its going to be tough for the American people to have confidence in what’s happening over there.”

“A lot of people think just because Republicans are out of power that we are not conducting an investigation. We still are.” He continued, “Whether or not people will come in and interview with us, we don’t have gavels, we don’t have subpoena power. But we will still be trying to interview people and we will still be making criminal referrals.”

Nunes also suggested the White House create a “transparency office,” to determine whether or not the FISA application to spy on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page would be made public

“The government’s gotten so big, you’ve got so many of these different agencies. There needs to be someone in the White House or the President of the United States, who’s the boss, who can make that decision and make it quickly.”

Mueller Indicts Roger Stone, Still No Evidence of Collusion

Political advisor Roger Stone has been indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller on charges of obstruction, witness tampering, and making false statements.

Fox News reports:

The 24-page indictment alleges that Stone worked to obstruct the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election by making false statements to the committee, denying he had records sought by the committee and persuading a witness to provide false testimony.

About twelve armed FBI officers in tactical gear arrested Stone in an early morning raid at his Florida home.

Stone will make an appearance later today at a federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

On Wednesday night, Stone appeared on Fox News’ show Tucker Carlson Tonight where he vowed he would not lie about President Trump to “ease the pressure on myself.”

“No matter how much pressure they put on me, no matter what they say I will not bear false witness against Donald Trump,” he said. “I will not do what Michael Cohen has done and makeup lies to ease the pressure on myself.”

Must See: Even Obama’s Border Patrol Chief Supports Trump’s Wall

The chief of Border Patrol under President Obama said President Donald Trump’s wall on the southern border would be effective.

Former Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last night, “Yes. [walls] absolutely work. If you look in the past, you don’t have to go too far back in history, that bipartisan legislation Secure Fence Act in 2006 and 2012, bipartisan legislation passed where they built the wall or fence or physical barrier, whatever you want to call it, it’s a wall. It works.”

Morgan told Carlson that he was removed from his position once the Trump administration transitioned to power, and yet he still supported the President’s agenda for the border wall.

“The president is right, the president of [National] Border Patrol Council is right,” he said. “The other day when they had the national press conference and they got up and they said, ‘The wall wor,’ they are right, and it’s not based on a personal, political ideology. That’s based on historical data and facts that can be proven.”

Conservative Iraq Vet Permanently Banned from Twitter: They’ll Come for You, Too

Iraq War veteran, former congressional candidate and conservative radio host Jesse Kelly is speaking out after Twitter permanently banned him on Sunday.

Speaking with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Monday night, Kelly was asked why Twitter had banned him.

“Nobody knows,” he replied.  “Twitter kicked me off the platform because I was a mainstream voice on the right that spoke the truth, Tucker and that’s all anybody knows. They’ve given me no explanation as they told Congress they would give explanations. All they sent was an email that said you are permanently banned and you can’t appeal it for repeated rules violations only I don’t violate their rules. I don’t cuss at people on there I don’t harass people on there…all of a sudden my account vanished like a Hillary Clinton email.”

He then issued a warning to Carlson, “They’ll come for you, too,” said Kelly.

In August, Kelly wrote an op-ed in the Federalist in which he warned conservatives that Twitter would begin banning them:

Many on the left and the right gave a loud cheer last week when Alex Jones was banished from Facebook. Twitter later suspended him. While it is not surprising to see the jackals on the left cheer at the burning of books, one would hope folks on the right would look in the mirror and realize their time is coming soon. The leftists will not stop (and did not stop) at nutty Alex Jones, because they do not think you are much different from him. You rightly think your belief in immigration enforcement is much different than his disgusting conspiracy theory about Sandy Hook. But you must understand the left thinks you are both equally vile. They just knew Jones was the weak member of the herd. They could pick him off as a test run. Next they’re coming for you.

In January, undercover investigative journalism outlet, Project Veritas revealed Twitter employees would engage in mass-banning of accounts that expressed interest in God, guns, America and Trump.

The employee told a Project Veritas undercover journalist, “Just go to a random [Trump] tweet and just look at the followers. They’ll all be like, guns, God, ‘Merica, and with the American flag and the cross. Like, who says that? Who talks like that? It’s for sure a bot.”

When asked if he could get rid of the accounts, he replied, “Yeah. You just delete them, but, like, the problem is there are hundreds of thousands of them, so you’ve got to, like, write algorithms that do it for you.”

Project Veritas’ investigation also revealed that Twitter employees admitted to “shadow banning” pro-Trump accounts, conservatives and “sh**ty people.”

House Republicans invited Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to speak to Congress in September after conservatives accused the company of censoring them. Dorsey pushed back on the claims and testified in his prepared remarks that “Twitter does not use political ideology to make any decisions, whether related to ranking content on our service or how we enforce our rules.”
