Gingrich: Trump Must Become “Substantially More Disciplined”


Newt Gingrich said Thursday on FOX & Friends that President Trump must become more disciplined and that his initial response to Charlottesville was inadequate. "The president was inadequate initially, particularly when he began to say there some good people in the crowd of neo-Nazis and alt-right," the former House Speaker said. "If you're a good person and you see someone chanting anti-Semitic chants and you see somebody wearing a Nazi flag, you leave, you don't stay." "He's much more isolated than he thinks he is," Gingrich said of Trump

Laura Ingraham: Is The Left Going To Start Burning Books?


Laura Ingraham said Tuesday on FOX & Friends that toppling Civil War-era Confederate statues is not about racial healing. "This is not about racial healing or racial unity when you see property being destroyed," Ingraham said. "That's not what it's about. It's about the eradication of history and acknowledgment that we had really difficult, horrible moments in our country's history that we were able to overcome." "I think when you see people who have no idea it seems about the history of this country just roundly denouncing anyone who had any connection to the south, we're in very precarious times," she added. "What else will be subjected to their eradication and enunciation?" Ingraham asked. "And what about books? Are they going to start burning books too?"

CIA Director Pompeo: Cubans, Russians, Iranians, Hezbollah Are In Venezuela


FNC host Chris Wallace asks CIA director Mike Pompeo why the chaos in socialist Venezuela is a problem for the U.S. MIKE POMPEO: From an intelligence perspective we have watched in my seven months in office a continued deterioration. Maduro is continuing to assert more power, inflict more pain on the people of Venezuela, you can see the beginning of fissures among various groups. What I believe the president is trying to accomplish this week was to give the Venezuelan people hope and opportunity to create a situation where democracy can be restored. The intelligence makes very clear that the Maduro regime continues to put snipers in towers and do things that are horrible, repressive and the American policy is to work with our Latin American partners to try and restore democracy… Venezuela could very much become a risk for the United States of America. The Cubans are there; the Russians are there, the Iranians, Hezbollah are there. This is something that has a risk of getting to a very very bad place, so America needs to take this very seriously.

Dershowitz: Trump Has “More Credibility” Than Obama With North Korea


Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz talks President Trump's rhetoric on North Korea and the new Clinton email search on Saturday's broadcast of FOX & Friends. Dershowitz said Trump enjoys more credibility with North Korea than Obama did with his foreign policy. ALAN DERSHOWITZ: One hopes that the president is not doing what President Obama did years ago when he created a red line with Syria and then it failed to comply. I think that probably at this point President Trump has more credibility. I suspect he is believed because he's so unpredictable. We saw it today, that the North Koreans respected in kind. So, it's hard to second guess. Some presidents have taken the position of speak softly and carry a big stick. Other presidents have spoken forcefully and loud. It really depends on the situation… I think we ought to take a deep breath and wait and see how it plays out.

Gorka: North Korea A Threat, But “You Never Give In To Dictators And You Never Give In To Blackmail”


On FOX & Friends this morning, deputy assistant to the president Sebastian Gorka said it is time to get behind Trump on North Korea. Gorka said the situation is analogous to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Gorka also said while North Korea is a threat, the U.S. a superpower and should not "give in" to a dictator and blackmail. GORKA: The message is very clear: don't test this White House, Pyongyang… Look, we are not taking the actions that we've taken, especially the United Nations Security Council which was a historic vote this weekend. We aren't taking them because there isn't a threat, we're taking them because North Korea represents a grave threat. To quote Secretary Tillerson, H.R. McMaster, the President, Secretary Mattis… a grave threat. Not only to the region, but to the United States. Nevertheless you look at the phrase from the Cold War, the correlation of forces. We are a hyper power. North Korea is a very, very insignificant threat in terms of scale. They have this capability that they are using to blackmail the west, but you never give in to dictators and you never give into blackmail. And that's why North Korea has to deescalate right now.

Krauthammer: Removing Trump From Office Would Be A Catastrophic Mistake


Fox News Channel's Tucker Carlson and Charles Krauthammer respond to President Trump's West Virginia rally. KRAUTHAMMER: Here's a guy, his numbers are down in the 30s, he's got reports of a grand jury, he's got the walls closing in on him in Washington. He goes out into the country and says, these are my people, these are real people, forget about the numbers, forget about the chatter in Washington, forget about the stories about Russia… But [Trump] represents a huge constituency of tremendous support and enthusiasm. Admittedly, this is one state where he won his biggest victory of all, but there are other states. His address was to the Midwest, the place where he won the election. He wasn't so specific on policy, but he said: "I'm bringing you guys back! I'm the only one who listened, you were abandoned." That's his appeal, that is how he won the election. He's reminding the elites that that appeal is still there. Tucker Carlson asks Krauthammer about the possibility that Trump could be removed from office, wondering: "If that were to happen, some of these voters might conclude they're not really allowed to pick their own president?" CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: That is why I worry we are headed into dangerous and choppy Constitutional waters. We know what the Democrats want to do; get control of the House and on day one start impeachment. I happen to think; as you know I opposed the Trump candidacy. I don't think he is very well fit for the presidency. But fitness is not a reason for impeachment, and removal. High crimes are. Here we have a prosecutor looking for high crimes. With Watergate you started with a crime and tried to find out how it happened. Here they are looking for a crime… as of yet I haven't heard of one. Collusion is unseemly but it isn't a crime. So you've got a political establishment, mostly Democratic, but there are some Republicans, who would like to see him taken out of office. That would be a catastrophic mistake. It would cause a rupture in the country, where people would say: 'When we people, the ones who have been 'abandoned' elect sombody we like, our guy gets taken out. What happened, I thought we had a stable democracy?' Again, I think he is unfit, but that is the grounds for removal. TUCKER CARLSON: That would tell people we have a fake democracy — it is not real. KRAUTHAMMER: If you think a man is unfit, you vote against him, you don't remove him from office. And that is where I am afraid we are headed… There will be another election, there always is. I think this appearance he did in West Virginia tonight is a way of saying: My numbers may be down, but I command a formidable army.
