Hannity: The Left Should Feel Same Way About Democrats Who Honor Racist Democrats


FOX News' Sean Hannity highlights what he said is the Democratic party's hypocrisy on historical racism. Hannity noted former President Bill Clinton's mentor segregationist J. William Fulbright and Hillary Clinton's praise of noble Robert Byrd. From his Wednesday's night monologue: HANNITY: This happens, we can predict, every two to four years, disgusting, offensive. But it compels — it pales in comparison to what the Democrats have tolerated in their own party. Here something the media won't tell you. Republicans have been the party of Lincoln, the Emancipation Proclamation. Democrats? What have they been? The party of segregation, the Southern Manifesto. Remember back in 1956, it was Democrats who introduced what was known as that Southern Manifesto. That's a document to resist the Supreme Court decision, Brown vs. the Board of Education and the ruling in segregation in schools. Let's see. People like Bill Clinton's mentor, who he praised many times, J. William Fulbright, well, who's been praised throughout his entire career, signed it. It was overwhelmingly signed by Democratic members of Congress in 1956. According to Politico, only two Republicans supported that. Then we go back to the 1960s, passage of the Civil Rights Act in '64, the Voting Rights Act in '65. Same Southern Democrats that tried to stop these historic pieces of legislation from being passed, including filibustering the Civil Rights Act for months! And then there's the actual vote tallies. Let's take a look at the no votes for the Civil Rights Act of '64. 112 Democrats in Congress voted against it. 41 Republicans. And then for the 1965 Voting Rights Act, 78 Democrats in Congress voted against it, 25 Republicans voted no. So I don't understand. The Democrats, the media, that's their history. And some people in the Democratic Party today praised those people that were involved in that history. Here's another fact the media is ignoring. George Wallace, one of the most racist pro-segregationists in history, Democrat for most of his political career. Then there's Democratic senator, remember the former Klansman? Wasn't in charge that — really that long ago, Robert Byrd. He filibustered the Civil Rights Act for over 14 hours before voting against it. And other well-known Democrats, you know, to vote no, well, let's see, that's Bill Clinton's mentor, J. William Fulbright, and even Al Gore's father, Al Gore, Senior. Once again, you would think Democrats would denounce and force those type of people out of their party. But instead, Democrats did the complete opposite, especially when it comes to Robert Byrd, former Klansman. Hillary Clinton — we've got the tape — praising him as her mentor after he died! Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) HILLARY CLINTON FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: Senator Byrd was a man of surpassing eloquence and nobility. From my first day in the Senate, I sought out his guidance, and he was always generous with his time and his wisdom. I admired his tireless advocacy for his West Virginia constituents. As secretary of state, I continue to rely on his advice and counsel. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Her mentor? Was she giving Robert Byrd a pass? He was in the Klan. Now, take a look at what Robert Byrd said to Tony Snow. This was back on Fox News Sunday in just 2001, 16 years ago. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) SEN. ROBERT BYRD, D-WEST VIRGINIA: White (EXPLETIVE DELETED) I've seen a lot of white (EXPLETIVE DELETED) in my time, want to use that word. But we've all — we all — we just need to work together to make our country a better country. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Pretty shocking, former Klansman — would you call someone who says that your mentor like Hillary? This just highlights the Democrats' massive double standard when it comes to race in America, the divide that they are contributing to. They have made race a political wedge issue in this country for decades, and they have used it, sadly, to rip this country apart. Last night, we showed you how President Obama — remember? He rushed to judgment, raced to conclusions before any evidence, any facts came out, any the testimony came out in four particular high-profile race cases, rush to judgment. President Obama made it a point to associate himself with groups like Black Lives Matter that chant things like, What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now. Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon. President Obama even invited Black Lives Matter to his White House and praised a Black Lives Matter leader, DeRay Mckesson, while completely excusing his anti-police remarks. Just take a look at a couple of McKesson's tweets. Quote, 'This feared for my life language is perhaps the new execution motto of America's largest gang, the police.' Should someone who spews that hatred really have been invited to Obama's White House? Where was the media's outrage then, let alone he was praised by the president at the time, President Obama. Then there's the issue of leftists destroying public property and tearing down monuments like what we saw happen in Durham, North Carolina, this week. The left — they're up in arms over President Trump asking where America should draw a line when it comes to removing these monuments. Well, now, look, people can agree with what they think these statues represent. They have honest disagreement. They don't have a right to destroy property. They don't have a right to be violent because they disagree with what they stand for. We have a political process for that. And as the president said, let local municipalities decide. If the left is so upset over Confederate monuments, then maybe they should feel the same way about displays that honor racist Democrats, the ones we just told you about. Take a look at this statue, Robert Byrd, the former Klansman in the West Virginia state capitol. The Democrats now think it needs to be taken down? According to a local West Virginia website, there are at least 56 buildings, bridges, highways, centers and other places that are named after Robert Byrd. Do they need to be renamed? Do they need to be taken out? There are also highways, statues, other things that are dedicated to people like Al Gore, Senior, J. William Fulbright, George Wallace! If the left, members of the media — they're going to lose their collective minds over the latest attack against President Trump, I think it's important to remember this in many ways is selective moral outrage. And more importantly, at the end of the day, a huge distraction. This last election was about the forgotten men and women of this country, people on poverty, people on food stamps and people that cannot find a job! As all these fights go on and all the undermining of the president continues, none of those people are being helped. That is a huge, huge shame for the American people.

Hannity: Media Using Charlottesville To Create Racial Tension, Bludgeon Trump and Conservatives


Sean Hannity gave a long monologue on Monday, calling on the "destroy Trump establishment media to start recognizing how they have a massive double standard." Hannity said the media is using a "high-profile act of violence to bludgeon the president and conservatives politically." He accused the media of creating racial tensions to attack people they agree with and to inflict as much damage politically as possible. "It couldn't be more obvious, more transparent who the president was talking about," Hannity said of Trump's Saturday statement. "He was standing for equal justice under the law, against racism. And the press, what did they do? They used a high-profile act of violence to bludgeon the president and conservatives politically. So predictable." "Now, it was crystal clear what the president was talking about. But the press, they went after him anyway. And the destroy Trump establishment media — they didn't care about the violence, seemingly, or the racial tensions they're creating or the civil unrest as much as they cared about using this tragedy as an opportunity to attack people they disagree with, and in particular, the president, to try and inflict as much damage politically as possible. You know what? Just like they have done since November 8! That's a simple truth," Hannity said. From Monday's broadcast of Hannity on FOX News: SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Welcome to "Hannity." This is a "Fox News Alert." The president condemning yet again in the strongest possible terms the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, the violence and the mayhem. Also tonight, we will analyze the horrific politicizing of these events. That's tonight's very important breaking news "Opening Monologue." All right, what we saw take place in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend — it is disgusting, it is despicable. And it's really hard to imagine in this day and age that there are actually people out there that could do this to their fellow human beings. It's hard to imagine that there are people in this country that have these types of hateful, inexcusable, racist, white supremacist views. And it's also hard to imagine that there are still some people that have that high level of ignorance that, yes, live amongst us. Now, there's no place in this country for these neo-Nazi, fascist, white supremacists. And they — what they stand for should be condemned in the widest terms possible by all good people in this country. What they believe in — it's the complete opposite of what the United States of America stands for, and sadly, we have seen way too much of these kinds of acts over the years. Now, as far as the groups that were involved, the white supremacists, do they have a constitutional right to free speech, regardless of how disgusting and offensive what they say is? Unfortunately, that's how our First Amendment works. Even the American Civil Liberties Union, one of Trump's biggest outspoken critics, they defended the organization this weekend and their right to rally in court. So it's allowed to happen. And then the other groups down there also have the same right to speak out against these evil people. Now, make no mistake, this was all provoked by radical, racist extremists. But the violent clashes should never have happened. Where were the police? Over the last number of years also we have watched extremists on both sides battling it out. We have seen this act too often. It doesn't solve a thing, and it only gives these radicals on both sides more ammo so they can continue to spread their hatred. And what's so repulsive in all of this — we have a woman that died, dozens of fellow human beings injured this week, and over what? A bunch of idiots fighting over stupid, ignorant anti-American views and ideas? Now, instead of covering this horrible situation fairly, openly, honestly, like we're going to do tonight, over the weekend, we saw the destroy Trump establishment media go into a feeding frenzy, trying to assign blame as quickly as possible, and of course to paint the president, all conservatives, all Republicans as racist and bigots. That's not true. These are the exact same tactics we see by the left every two and four years during the election cycles. And we'll have more on that in just a minute. President Trump is not a racist. Conservatives, the conservatives I know, like and love, Republicans I know and like — they're not racist. The country is filled with people that are good, honorable and decent, and that's most conservatives, if not all that I know. Now, I'm not saying — nobody's saying racism doesn't exist. It does exist in this country. It's sad. But if we're going to be fair and honest, this is not exclusive to one particular party. Now, there are racists on both sides in America, but most Americans, what are they? Good, great people. They condemn racism. They get up every morning, they work hard, play by the rules, pay their taxes, create goods and services that others want, need and desire. And you know what? They raise their kids to be good people. You know, for all the white supremacists out there, you know what? There are others on the left, the Nation of Islam leader, for example, Louis Farrakhan, that are insane. It's a simple truth. But all we heard all weekend long from the left, the mainstream media, is that these extremists in Charlottesville this weekend somehow represent all conservatives, that the president supports them. He doesn't. All Republicans. And they attacked the president again and again and again. Don't believe it? Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) JAMELLE BOUIE, SLATE MAGAZINE, ON "FACE THE NATION"/CBS: And if you're looking for the roots of why white supremacists and neo-Nazis felt emboldened to march in a college town, you don't have to look very far from the White House. UNIDENTIFIED MALE, MSNBC: We have a racist as a president because a man that cannot stand up and condemn the Ku Klux Klan and Nazism is a racist. ANA NAVARRO, CNN POLITICAL COMMENTATOR: He was a coward. He didn't have the spine to behave like the leader of the United States, and I feel that to be shameful. He's not only unfit to be president. In my book, his lack of empathy, his lack of leadership, his lack of courage, he's unfit to be human! (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Unbelievable, unfit to be human. All right, let's go back, let's take a look at the president's original comments on all of this. This all happened before a madman plowed into a group of people with his car. Here's what President Trump tweeted. Quote, "We all must be united and condemn all that hate stands for. There's no place for this kind of violence in America. Let's come together as one." The president also said, "We must remember this truth. No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first." And once the protesters — once it turned deadly, President Trump immediately came out and gave a statement. Here's what the president said. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP, AUG. 12) PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides — on many sides. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Now, all weekend long, I, like many of you, watched the media going insane, acting like they didn't know what the president was talking about. They ran with a false narrative all weekend. Oh, big story, he didn't mention the groups by name. Well, it couldn't be more obvious, more transparent who the president was talking about. He was standing for equal justice under the law, against racism. And the press, what did they do? They used a high-profile act of violence to bludgeon the president and conservatives politically. So predictable. Now, it was crystal clear what the president was talking about. But the press, they went after him anyway. And the destroy Trump establishment media — they didn't care about the violence, seemingly, or the racial tensions they're creating or the civil unrest as much as they cared about using this tragedy as an opportunity to attack people they disagree with, and in particular, the president, to try and inflict as much damage politically as possible. You know what? Just like they have done since November 8! That's a simple truth. So President Trump once again, he came out today. He condemned again what happened, and yes, he called out the groups by name. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) TRUMP: Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: But you know what? We all know that's not going to be good enough. The media is never going to be satisfied with anything the president says or does because it's not part of their ideology and narrative. They want to paint the president, conservatives, Republicans as racist and bigoted by ignoring what he said this weekend, ignoring him over the years again and again and again condemning white supremacists, people like David Duke. For example — let me give you an example. This is Donald Trump over the years, something the destroy Trump media will never show you, condemning Duke, white supremacists. Look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) CHRIS WALLACE, DEBATE MODERATOR, MARCH 3, 2016: What are your views on the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacists? TRUMP: I totally disavow the Ku Klux Klan. I totally disavow David Duke. I've been doing it now for two weeks. This is — you're probably about the 18th person that's asked me the question. TRUMP, FEB. 26, 2016: I didn't even know he endorsed me, David Duke endorsed me. OK. All right. I disavow. CHUCK TODD, MODERATOR, "MEET THE PRESS"/NBC, JULY 23, 2016: David Duke announced his Senate candidacy, claiming your agenda for his own, or essentially saying glad that you spoke out… TRUMP: Are you ready before you ask the question? TODD: Newt Gingrich said every Republican should repudiate this guy, not matter what it takes. TRUMP: I did. And I do. Rebuked. Is that OK? Rebuked. TODD: Rebuked? TRUMP: Done. MATT LAUER, NBC NEWS, FEB. 2000: What do you see as the biggest problem with the Reform Party right now? TRUMP: Well, you've got David Duke just joined, a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Bigot, racist, rebuke, repudiate, want nothing to do with. Now, President Trump and the people that voted for him and that support his agenda — they don't like racists. They don't like bigots. They do not like what went down in Charlottesville. Conservatives that I have known my whole life, Republicans I have known my whole life, people like me — what was this election about? The forgotten men and women, the people that are out of work, in poverty, on food stamps, the doubling of our national debt. What was this election about? It was about getting jobs, getting our economy back in shape. It was also about keeping our country safe and secure. That's what this election was about. But yet every two to four years, the left, the Democrats, the media — they divide Americans by playing the race card every single election! Remember 1998, radio ad, Missouri, oh, elect a Republican and black churches are going to burn? Or the James Byrd at in 2000, when George Bush supported the death penalty for the guy that brutally murdered an innocent man by the name of James Burr (ph). For example, take a look throughout history. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) HILLARY CLINTON, THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, FEB. 16, 2016: Many Republicans talk in coded racial language about takers and losers. They demonize President Obama and encourage the ugliest impulses of the paranoid fringe. BARACK OBAMA, THEN-PRESIDENT, NOV. 3, 2016: If you accept the support of Klan sympathizers before you are president, you will accept their support after you're president. JOE BIDEN, THEN-VICE PRESIDENT, AUG. 14, 2012: They're going to put you all back in chains. AL GORE, THEN-VICE PRESIDENT, JULY 12, 2000: It's wrong what the leader of the Republican Party and this Congress are doing in blocking an accurate census because they don't want to count everyone that they don't think they can count on. GORE, JULY 16, 1998: Don't tell me we've got a color-blind society! (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Notice Al Gore changes his voice, his cadence, his tone. Now, in 1998, before a predominantly black audience — he even went as far as to say Republicans know that theirs is the wrong agenda for African-Americans. They don't even want to count you in the Census. What a lie! And then there's President Obama's book, remember? "Audacity of Hope." Where was the media? Remember, he recounted a sermon from Reverend Jeremiah Wright from the church of G-d America, white folks' greed runs a world in need. Was the media outraged over this? (BEGIN AUDIO CLIP FROM "THE AUDACITY OF HOPE") OBAMA: It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks' greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere. (END AUDIO CLIP) HANNITY: Oh, you're so inspired by Reverend Wright, black liberation ideology — he sat in the pews of Wright's church for 20 years! Remember Reverend Wright? Remember him attacking U.S. KKK of A, and the Sunday after 9/11, "America's chickens coming home to roost." Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) REV. JEREMIAH WRIGHT, SEPT. 16, 2001: The stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yard! America's chickens are coming home to roost! WRIGHT, APRIL 13, 2003: No, no, no! Not God bless America, God damn America that's in the Bible for killing innocent people! God damn America for treating here citizens as less than human! (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Twenty-plus years in the church. How many in the media covered Ayers and Dohrn? Well, that's what President Obama started his political career. What about the Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, called white people the devil, the skunk of the planet Earth, and has said many racist, anti-semitic things, too many to count. Recent report, Daily Caller — well, they're saying that Farrakhan is claiming — and there's audio of it — that he met privately with then-Senator Barack Obama in 2008 before he announced his presidential run. And he said that the Nation of Islam supported Barack Obama quietly for president, and when he was a community organizer. Now, of course, as the DailyCaller pointed out, neither Obama or Farrakhan want to talk about that friendship. Has there been any investigation by the media? Pretty shocking. Well, the media didn't think it was important for you to know these things. They didn't cover a lot of those things. Then there's President Obama's handling — remember? All the high-profile racial cases when he was president where he jumped to conclusions, rushed to judgment without facts or information? He's supposed to be a lawyer, too. Watch this. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) OBAMA, JULY 22, 2009: The Cambridge police acted stupidly. There's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. Now, that's just a fact. OBAMA, JULY 19, 2013: The African- American community is also knowledgeable that there's a history of racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: And President Obama also had members from the group — remember? Black Lives Matter, people chanting things like, "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon," talking about cops. Or when they talked about, "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now." Oh, they were invited to the White House, where the president praised that group. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) OBAMA, FEB. 18, 2016: We've also got some young people here who are making history as we speak, people like Britney (ph), who served on our police task force in the wake of Ferguson and has led many of the protests that took place there and shined a light on the injustice that was happening. People like Deray McKesson (ph), who's done some outstanding work mobilizing in Baltimore around these issues. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Remember Hillary Clinton running for president? She praised Black Lives Matter, the same people. "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now." Watch her. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) CLINTON, AUG. 27, 2015: And we do have to stand up and say loudly and clearly black lives matter. CLINTON, OCT. 13, 2015: There's a long list. We need a new New Deal for communities of color and the poor. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: You ever see the media talk about these things? This is why shows like this, in my opinion, are different from the liberal mainstream media. They've ignored these examples for decades. They also — they don't seem to care about the threats of violence that have been made repeatedly against our current president, President Trump. Remember? This photo was so graphic, we always have to issue the warning. It shows Kathy Griffin posing, ISIS fighter, bloody severed head of President Trump. Johnny Depp talking about killing a president. Madonna talking about blowing up the Trump White House. Really? Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) JOHNNY DEPP, ACTOR, JUNE 22: When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify. I'm not an actor. (LAUGHTER) I lie for a living. However, it's been a while, and maybe it's time. MADONNA, JAN. 21: Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Imagine, God forbid, somebody said that in the Obama years? Then there's Shakespeare in the park, that performance showing a Trump-like person being brutally stabbed to death. Also other celebrities, Snoop Dogg, Mickey Rourke advocating for violence against the president. What about — remember the Bernie Sanders supporter, the one that targeted Republicans at baseball practice, leaving Congressman Steve Scalise fighting for his life? Well, was the media blaming Democrats for that? No, and by the way, they shouldn't have. And I don't blame Bernie, either. Now, by the way, the left is totally unhinged at this point. This is, sadly, who they are, the double standard they adopt. And by the way, after all these examples where Democrats line up to condemn those people, where are they condemning all the things we're playing tonight? You see, they've got this separate set of rules for Republicans and Democrats. Every two to four years, Democrats divide the country. They play identity politics. It's been a part of this playbook the Democrats used for generations. So it's time for the destroy Trump establishment media to start recognizing how they have a massive double standard, that they have an agenda and ideology, because just like, sadly, white supremacists in Charlottesville, hatred of any kind should not be tolerated or ever given a free pass, period, whoever is involved in the hatred, like the hate we saw this weekend.

Hannity: Time To Drain Mitch McConnell From The Swamp For Obstructing GOP Agenda


SEAN HANNITY: Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell — he's actually blaming President Trump and his excessive expectations as the reason why he hasn't enacted the agenda you voted for. Now, take a look at Mitch McConnell making this ridiculous excuse to his constituents. It's pretty laughable. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL, R-K.Y., MAJORITY LEADER: Part of the reason I think that the story line is that we haven't done much is because, in part, the president and others have set these early timelines about things need to be done by a certain point. Our new president has, of course, not been in this line of work before and I think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: He hasn't been in this line of work, in the swamp, in the sewer, doesn't understand the legislative process. OK, this is beyond unbelievable. And the president, to his credit — he responded on Twitter. He wrote, quote, 'Senator Mitch McConnell said I had excessive expectations, but I don't think do. After seven years of hearing repeal, replace, why is it not done?' Mitch McConnell, you have lived in this D.C. sewer and swamp obviously for way too long. And here's the thing that Mitch McConnell doesn't seem to understand. President Trump — he didn't set those excessive expectations. Senator McConnell, you did. Republicans did in the House and the Senate. You promised over and over and over again over seven years that you were going to repeal and replace ObamaCare. You couldn't even get the skinny repeal done. And Speaker Paul Ryan — he sat down with me in February. He promised that Republicans had a 200-day plan to get all kinds of the Trump agenda and all these items done for the American people. Well, Guess what? It hasn't happened. So Senator McConnell, my message to you — if all you're going to do is whine like a 10-year-old and complain and make excuses and blame the president for your failure after eight months of him now being in office and you have in the House and Senate — guess what? It really is time to drain the sewer and swamp. You know, Mitch McConnell, have you ever had in all your years in politics an enthusiastic crowd like President Trump? I doubt it. The American people voted for this president's agenda. He has an identity. He has a plan. He's fighting every day. What do you even stand for at this point? He wants it enacted. He has a pen in hand. Senator, if you can't get it done, get out of the way! Retire. Leave Washington. Go play golf. Go fishing. And then, of course, you have people like Senator John McCain. Now, after casting the deciding vote to kill the effort, even the skinny repeal and replace ObamaCare, well, McCain is back to criticizing President Trump for his tough words against North Korea. He lives to criticize President Trump. Now, he's saying that he's not sure how President Trump's tough rhetoric is going to help. Well, Senator McCain, you know, perhaps would you like to explain your comments and jokes supposedly about 'Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran' back in 2007? Did that help that situation? You might remember Senator McCain doing this. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, R-ARIZONA: … that old Beach Boys song, bomb Iran? You know? (LAUGHTER) MCCAIN: Bomb, bomb, bomb — anyway… (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Senator McCain, you've also in the course of your career — you've called for military intervention, let's see, in Libya, Syria, Ukraine, North Korea and Iraq. And there's these comments from Senator McCain just a couple of weeks ago on the Senate floor. Senator, look at your own remarks! (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) MCCAIN: I hope we can again rely on humility and our need to cooperate, on our dependence on each other, to learn how to trust each other again, and by so doing, better serve the people who elected us. Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the Internet. To hell with them! They don't want anything done for the public good. Our incapacity is their livelihood. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: No, your inaction, your incapacity here — that's your problem. You made the promises and your inaction is, frankly, embarrassing. And you made these promises. And Americans are suffering. Here's the thing. If senators like McCain, McConnell, Collins, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — you guys want to obstruct the entire Republican Party's agenda, the president's agenda just like the Democrats and then make excuses and cast blame here, there and everywhere about why you can't do your job and fulfill your promises — well, I say it's now time to clean house. Let's put in new leaders in Washington who will keep their word, keep their promises, serve the American people! You know what? All of you senators, you should lose your chairmanships. We should put leaders in those positions in Washington who care about the American people; that have a sense of urgency about the 50 million in poverty, on food stamps, and then millions and millions out of the labor force.

Senator, if you can't get it done, get out of the way! Retire. Leave Washington. Go play golf. Go fishing. And then, of course, you have people like Senator John McCain. Now, after casting the deciding vote to kill the effort, even the skinny repeal and replace ObamaCare, well, McCain is back to criticizing President Trump for his tough words against North Korea. He lives to criticize President Trump. Now, he's saying that he's not sure how President Trump's tough rhetoric is going to help. Well, Senator McCain, you know, perhaps would you like to explain your comments and jokes supposedly about 'Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran' back in 2007? Did that help that situation? You might remember Senator McCain doing this. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, R-ARIZONA: … that old Beach Boys song, bomb Iran? You know? (LAUGHTER) MCCAIN: Bomb, bomb, bomb — anyway… (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Senator McCain, you've also in the course of your career — you've called for military intervention, let's see, in Libya, Syria, Ukraine, North Korea and Iraq. And there's these comments from Senator McCain just a couple of weeks ago on the Senate floor. Senator, look at your own remarks! (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) MCCAIN: I hope we can again rely on humility and our need to cooperate, on our dependence on each other, to learn how to trust each other again, and by so doing, better serve the people who elected us. Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the Internet. To hell with them! They don't want anything done for the public good. Our incapacity is their livelihood. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: No, your inaction, your incapacity here — that's your problem. You made the promises and your inaction is, frankly, embarrassing. And you made these promises. And Americans are suffering. Here's the thing. If senators like McCain, McConnell, Collins, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — you guys want to obstruct the entire Republican Party's agenda, the president's agenda just like the Democrats and then make excuses and cast blame here, there and everywhere about why you can't do your job and fulfill your promises — well, I say it's now time to clean house. Let's put in new leaders in Washington who will keep their word, keep their promises, serve the American people! You know what? All of you senators, you should lose your chairmanships. We should put leaders in those positions in Washington who care about the American people; that have a sense of urgency about the 50 million in poverty, on food stamps, and then millions and millions out of the labor force.

Newt Gingrich: U.S. Needs Civil Defense Capability To Handle “Three Nuclear Events In Three Cities On Same Day”


Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich speaks about the nuclear threat from North Korea and four things we can do now to protect the U.S. NEWT GINGRICH: I first got involved in looking at nuclear warfare with a book called Tomorrow, which was a frightening account of a nuclear weapon going off over a city like Kansas City, and literally what would happen int he first 30-45 minutes. I was shocked as a teenage boy how terrible these weapons could become. We are talking about a genuine threat to the North Korean people, South Korea, Japan, the U.S., that would be in millions. Remember how we reacted after 9/11 and add at least 100x as many people, per city, and then you begin to realize how horrifying this would be. The time has come to realize that all these diplomatic resolutions and diplomatic manuevers — you're up against a very willful dictatorship that can withstand an enormous level of sanctions… dictators learn to adjust. They take care of the secret police and the military, and everyone else can starve. We have to do three or four things that are very big breaks in thinking and policy. First: We have to develop two new kinds of anti-ballistic missile systems. One is to take the experiments we've had with airborne lasers… so that any time we're worried about a North Korean launch, we can kill it on the way up… Second, we should reach back to the Reagan years, take the space based concept, which was then called Brilliant Pebbles… You want to have more than one shot… You need some kind of space based system where you can get 30-40 shots at this thing as it goes through the whole ballistic parabola. Third, we need to recognize in South Korea, Japan, and the U.S. a need for real civil defense. We should be capable of withstanding three nuclear events in three different cities in the same day, and having the hospitals, engineering, military, police, that would enable us to minimize the loss of human life. This is serious stuff. Finally, we have to have a very rapid pre-emptive strike capability, so the North Koreans will know if we think they are going to scare us, we will take them out before they have a chance to attack.

Gorka on North Korea: “This Is Not The Soviet Union,” “This Is A Potemkin Village — A Paper Tiger”


Advisor to the presdident on national security matters, Sebastain Gorka, extrapolates the significance of the unanimous vote this weekend in the United Nations Security Council to sanction North Korea. Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi said about that country's decision to enforce the sanctions, despite economic costs on its own companies, according to Reuters: "Owing to China's traditional economic ties with North Korea, it will mainly be China paying the price for implementing the resolution… But in order to protect the international non-proliferation system and regional peace and stability, China will, as before, fully and strictly properly implement the entire contents of the relevant resolution." "Think about all the people who not just underestimated, but criticized this president," Gorka said about thw work of the Trump administration to get China and Russia to agree to the sanctions. "[North Korea] can not even feed its own people, that is how much of a paper tiger this is," Gorka commented. Gorka said North Korea was trying to "blackmail" the West by building a nuclear program and then trading it for increased access to the global economy, like they have done several times before, but "that ended this weekend." Gorka's point can not be overstated. This appears to be the first time since World War Two that the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council have signalled their commitment to, together, fight against a rogue state to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons. Students of history will remember that in January 1950, before the beginning of the first Korean War, Russia and China's seats on the security council were filled by the Soviet Union and the Republic of China (Taiwan), respectively, and the Soviets along with all of their communist allies were boycotting the security council for its refusal to give the seat originally belonging to the Republic of China (at that time in exile in Taiwan) to the new communist government that had taken over the mainland. It was only a few months after the Soviet ambassador stormed out of the UNSC in protest, that North Korea, backed by the communist Chinese, invaded South Korea. Two days later, with the Soviets unable to veto, the Security Council voted to go to war for the first time in its history in order to defend South Korea. This time, a war between the great powers appears to have been averted, with the entire United Nations standing united against North Korea. Transcript: SEBASTIAN GORKA: They [North Korea] can rattle their rusty sabres, but the fact is this is a sadistic dictatorial regime, and what they have been trying to do, ever since the facilitation of their nuclear weapons program by the Clinton White House, and later the Obama White House, is to blackmail us. To blackmail the West. But that all ended this weekend. Think about all the people who not just underestimated, but criticized this president. What did he just achieve through the good works of [UN Ambassador] Nikki Haley and [Secretary of State] Rex Tillerson. We had a 15-0 vote in the United Nations Security Council — including [all five] permanent members: Russia, China, [U.S., France, U.K] — have brough the most stringent package of sanctions against North korea we have ever seen. They have backed themselves into a corner and they need to back down, as Rex Tillerson said. SEAN HANNITY: Is this guy crazy enough to, if, is he crazy enough to launcha nuke? The former Soviet Union understood mutually assured destruction. It was a huge vote to get Russia and China [with the United Nations Security Council voting] 15-0 [to impose sanctions on North Korea]. Nobody in the media covers it. But, is that enough to stop a madman? Or is he even a madman, or does he just like to cause trouble on the world stage? SEBASTIAN GORKA: This is not the Cold War. Remember, during the Cold War we had this phrase — correlation of forces — we had a balance, we had a standoff/ More than 20,000 nuclear weapons on each side. This is not the Soviet Union, this is a 'Potemkin Village' This regime can not even feed its own people, that is how much of a paper tiger this is. Now we have to send a very clear message [to Kim Jong Un]: Rex Tillerson today at the ASEAN meeting said [North Korea] can send a signal [to the rest of the world that they want to make a deal]: No more ballistic missile tests. Then we will know sanity reigns, and they don't want to bring down the ire of the president, and the Western community, on North Korea.

Huckabee Sanders: Stephen Miller Put Jim Acosta In His Place


White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders talks to Sean Hannity on FOX News about the Stephen Miller-Jim Acosta exchange at Wednesday's White House briefing. "They may run an edited version," Huckabee Sanders said of CNN's coverage of their exchange. "But my guess is, it's not the version where Stephen Miller puts him in his place." "I think America is much smarter than the media gives them credit for, and I think that is certainly working toward our advantage," she said. "You've seen us sometimes fight back a little bit stronger, because it's important for us to get the message out there," Sanders said. "But it's also important for us to push back on some of the ridiculous bias that we get from the media."

Hannity To GOP Sen. Flake: Instead Of Trying To Sell Your Book, Focus On Obamacare


Sean Hannity rips 'Never Trumper' Republican Sen. Jeff Flake for his new book which according to the FOX News host is undermining President Trump. Flake, in his new book, claimed the Republican party has lost its way and "given into nativism and protectionism." From Tuesday's broadcast of Hannity: SEAN HANNITY: Establishment Republicans, we already saw them fail and fail miserably. They couldn't even repeal and replace Obamacare, breaking a major promise they've been making for seven years. And what John McCain and others like Lisa Murkowski did last week was inexcusable. Instead of working to keep their word, well some of these Republicans appear to be ready to throw in the towel and move onto the next issue. Which proves as we have been saying that Republicans have no spine, you have no backbone, no vision, no willingness to fight for the American people, you don't have any identity, what do You people stand for now? And the Never Trumpers, forget them, the so-called Republicans they want the president to fail just so they could say I told you so. One example, look at Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, he's releasing a new book. He goes after President Trump and Republicans who supported him. Take a look at him selling his book… Senator, you've lost your way. Instead of trying to sell your books, maybe, Senator, you should be focusing on lowering Obamacare premiums. Let's look at your home state of Arizona, let's see in the last year alone, they went up 116%, the highest in the nation. So, the Never Trumpers like Senator Flake they don't seem to understand that by blocking the president's agenda, and you see the reaction he gets around the country, they're only harming you the American people… How is it possible for the president to govern on principles Republicans say they support when even Republicans don't have his back and they are undermining him? Now, Republicans you either need to start working to help the American people pass the agenda you say you support or get out of the way. Or better yet, you're going to be fired and nothing is going to be able to stop that.

Hannity: The Only Person In Republican Party Who Has A Vision Is Trump


In a monologue on the Thursday broadcast of his FOX News show, Sean Hannity said the only person in the Republican Party that has a vision is President Trump. Hannity said Republicans "have no vision, no identity, and there's no unity." SEAN HANNITY: You know, when we started the program tonight, I got to tell you it's really a shame that we are at this point with Senate Republicans having to pull an all-nighter. It's sort of taking toilet paper, they're wetting it down, they're throwing it up against the wall. That's their strategy, see what sticks strategy — an attempt to try and pass some kind of health care bill so that they can then go to conference with House Republicans and eventually come up with a plan to do what they promised to do, that's repeal and replace ObamaCare. Now, Senator McConnell just posted details of the, quote, "skinny" ObamaCare repeal. Republicans, they begged you, the American people, for this opportunity for seven long years. And they are now doing their best to squander it. There's no other way to spin this. Now, yesterday, seven GOP senators — they voted against the clean repeal of ObamaCare. Some of them voted for that very bill in 2015. It makes you wonder if everything you've been told for years was just all talk. Now, it sure certainly seems that way. And as I said last night, these senators have put Republican advantages in Congress now in jeopardy for 2018 because we don't know how the vote on the "skinny" repeal is ever going to turn out, and we'll be following it all night tonight. Also, Republicans — they had seven years, seven years to come up with a plan, seven years to find consensus and agreement, and that didn't happen. It's been one misstep after another. They literally let this all play out in public on TV and radio and in the papers instead of everybody getting in a room, as I suggested, locking the door, taking their phones, ordering pizza, having beer and Coke and Seven Up and water so that they could have the plan that works for the American people. Aren't the Republicans — and I'm a registered conservative. Aren't they supposed to be the party of big and bold ideas? Well, they're now today the party I say of zero identity. They seem too afraid, too timid, too spineless to go beyond the status quo. They played this way during the Obama years. The GOP is supposed to be the party of repeal, replace. They're supposed to be the party of freedom and liberty and capitalism and less regulation and government interference in our lives and free market solutions. Right now, they have no vision, they have no identity, and there's no unity. And they didn't even try to offer up big, out-of-the-box ideas. I've been talking about these ideas for over 15 years, how to fix our broken health care system. Remember this doctor in Kansas? I've been interviewing him since 2012, Dr. Josh Umbehr, Atlas MD. I've interviewed him all these times. He runs a health care cooperative. It's $50 a month for adults, $10 a month for children. They have no co-pays, unlimited office visits, 24-hour doctor service available for you, free procedures, 95 percent reductions because they negotiate directly with the pharmaceutical companies, and you leave with your medicine as soon as you leave the doctor's office. And the same with lab tests. Why not let other doctors — and by the way, some 400 already are doing similar things. They didn't even bring these ideas up, just like health savings accounts. Now, there's some good news today. The House did vote to fund the — some of the president's border wall, but that still has to get through the Senate. And finally, Republican lawmakers, their inability to get things done — here's the truth. It's harming you. And at this point, it seems like the only person in the Republican Party who has a vision, is articulating that vision, is the president himself. And you see the reaction that he gets and the crowds that show up when he speaks. And earlier this week on the Senate floor, after returning to Washington from his brain cancer diagnosis, Senator John McCain made these comments.

Hannity: Call Out Jake Tapper, ‘Humpty Dumpty’ Brian Stelter On Twitter For “Fake News”


FOX News Channel's Sean Hannity said it is time to fight back and shine a bright light on the dark corners of the "fake news industry." On the Monday broadcast of his FNC show, Hannity specifically called out CNN personalities Jake Tapper, Anderson Cooper, and 'Humpty Dumpty' Brian Stelter. Hannity said not to "get in their face," as former President Obama told supporters to do to political opponents in 2008, but instead to tell the "fake news" personalities" what you think on Twitter. "I am not encouraging you to get in your neighbor's face like former President Obama did," Hannity made clear. "Liberals would say I am calling for violence. But you can call out fake news right at the source. For example, you can tell fake news Jake Tapper exactly what you think of his interview with Anthony Scaramucci and you can do it on Twitter. Or you can message Brian Stelter, humpty dumpty, Jeff Zucker's stenographer, about his Russia, Russia, Russia obsession and lack of desire to be fair and balanced and point out Hillary, Uranium One, and felonies she committed." SEAN HANNITY, 'HANNITY' HOST: All right, so from the very moment Donald Trump announced he was running for office, the mainstream establishment media began their obsession with the man who would go on to become the 45th president of the United States. They mocked, they ridiculed the commander in chief. They continued to float their bizarre lies day in and out. Their goal is simple. They want to delegitimize, they want to destroy the presidency of Donald Trump. Tonight, we're going to show you how to combat and fight back this unfair, this abusively biased fake news and hold members of the destroy Trump media accountable. It's our very important mini-monologue tonight. Over the past few weeks, the Trump administration has been ramping up one of the most effective tactics for combating all the fake news. They have been speaking out on the very programs that spew the misinformation and lies about the president and standing up to these pundits and so-called journalists who treat the White House with hatred and disdain. I'm loving this fight back. Watch this. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) DR. SEBASTIAN GORKA, DEPUTY ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT, ON CNN: Anderson, how many minutes are we in? ANDERSON COOPER, CNN : Are you a TV producer now? You are concerned about how many minutes — GORKA: No, I'm just disappointed again — COOPER: If you got to go you got to go. GORKA: You're falling into the fake news trap again, and it's sad, Anderson. KELLYANNE CONWAY, COUNSELOR TO PRESIDENT TRUMP, ON CNN: We are very happy to come and take questions from I think an outlet that has been incredibly unfair and systemically against this presidency. I guess you made a business decision to do so. But we are here. We just turn on the TV and we see a one way non-conversation using words that are meant to deride and deny the president his due. SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS, WHITE HOUSE DEPUTY PRESS SECRETARY, ON "THIS WEEK"/ABC: There is a ton of focus on what I like to call Russia fever which is a total made up story about the president trying to take away the legitimacy of his victory in November. JAKE TAPPER, CNN: If you turned to one of your partners and say hey, do you have hundred grand for bail money in case I need it? Yes. Then people are going to say why is he talking about bail money? ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI, WHITE HOUSE COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR: Jake, Jake, that is a super ridiculous hypothetical, and I appreciate you are fly trying to think of them, but the truth of the matter is that the president is not going to have to pardon anybody because the Russia thing is a nonsensical thing. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Finally fighting back. And members of the Trump administration, they are beginning to shine a bright light on these dark corners of this fake news industry. And now thanks to social media you can, too. Remember when President Obama said this back in 2008? (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP, SEPT. 17, 2008) THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA: I need you to go out and talk to your friends and talk to your neighbors. I want you to talk to them whether they are independent or whether they are Republican. I want you to argue with them and get in their face. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: I am not encouraging you to get in your neighbor's face like former President Obama did. Liberals would say I am calling for violence. But you can call out fake news right at the source. For example, you can tell fake news Jake Tapper exactly what you think of his interview with Anthony Scaramucci and you can do it on Twitter. Or you can message Brian Stelter, humpty dumpty, Jeff Zucker's stenographer, about his Russia, Russia, Russia obsession and lack of desire to be fair and balanced and point out Hillary, Uranium One, and felonies she committed. And of course you've got liberal Joe calling the president a schmuck, a goon, a thug, and mentally unhinged. Great job, NBC. And if you don't think those remarks are appropriate, just send them a tweet. And over there of course you have Mika helping out, the over the top, feigning outrage every day. Her disgusting treatment of Kellyanne Conway, very despicable. You want to take it to the next level, write a message to their bosses, send a tweet over to Zucker over at fake news CNN or Andy Lack from NBC fake news. Right now the media is living in their little bubble. It is our job to remind them that there is an America way outside of New York, D.C., Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Tonight technology is now making it possible for you to take your point of view directly to the source and show America's elites that the forgotten men and forgotten women of this country voted for this agenda, and they want it completed, and for them to stop lying to you. Take to the social media. I think you will have a positive impact.
