O’Reilly: “Fake” News That Trump White House Is In Crisis; “The Crisis Is Being Manufactured”


On his Thursday podcast, Bill O'Reilly said the mainstream media narrative that the Trump administration is a 'White House in crisis' is fake and being manufactured. Transcript, via Bill O'Reilly: BILL O'REILLY: So in the midst of this big story, terror story, in England and the president speaking to the Pope and then going to NATO in Belgium, what do I see on CNN? White House in crisis. This is what they're doing. This is what their lead was last night. I mean, I'm saying to myself, am I not living in the real world anymore? White House in crisis. What crisis? What crisis? There is an investigation going on on whether Russians were able to compromise people like General Michael Flynn, and Paul Manafort, who worked for Trump briefly in his campaign. Were they able, the Russians, to compromise those people in some way? That's the investigation. OK that's where we are right now. That's a White House in crisis? See this is all fake. It is fake. The crisis is being manufactured. Now that being said, it could down the road lead to something more. It's possible. I want to know. Mueller is investigating now, the FBI is investigating, and two congressional committees are investigating. That's four. So I assume we're going to get to the bottom of it. But in the meantime the anti-Trump media is going to gin it up every single crisis, crisis, crisis. And what does that do? It hurts the president's ability to govern. Because he's always on the defensive. O'Reilly appeared on Friday's Glenn Beck Radio Show to talk about the news of the week:

O’Reilly: The Media Wants Trump Out Of Office; Trump Should Hold Press Conference


Bill O'Reilly delivers commentary on the "toothless" Russian investigation and the Trump Comey memo controversy on the Wednesday edition of his podcast. "What you've got is most of the press wanting to get President Trump out of office and then the other side is going to support him no matter what the facts are," O'Reilly said. "So neither side is really fair. So on February 13th General Michael Flynn was forced to resign as national security adviser after just 24 days on the job. You remember that. OK. And the reason was that Flynn was not honest with Vice President Pence and others in the Trump administration about his dealings with Russia before he took the national security job. While the campaign was going under way after the election before President Trump was sworn in." "We know is it's another leak," O'Reilly said of the Comey memo about his dinner with President Trump. 'This one from the FBI into the press that doesn't like Trump, OK, in order to hurt the president. That's what we know. So now cable news goes crazy as it always does. All the anti-Trump people come on 'Impeach impeach, impeach.' All of this structure of justice. Ba ba boom ba ba ba. I had to turn it off because none of these people are speaking honestly." O'Reilly also said President Trump should hold a press conference immediately. "I'd hold a press conference tomorrow," O'Reilly advised. "If I were Mr. Trump. I'd take questions. OK. You know I know it looks bad. Ask me what you want and I'll answer. Not Spicer. Not Sarah Huckabee. Him. Takes some questions. Limited. I'd say you know, 20 minutes because you know you get repetition, repetition, repetition. But have a press conference. See, the American people need to see leadership here. And this is leadership. Establish a commission. Hold the press conference. That makes sense to everybody. Again, for the good of the country when taking politics out of it." Trump tweets Thursday morning: "With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!" With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2017 Trump tweets Thursday morning: "This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 18, 2017 Transcript, via Bill O'Reilly: BILL O'REILLY: Hey BillOReilly.com Premium Members, welcome to the No Spin News for Wednesday the 17th of May, already, 2017. All right so this is an important No Spin newscast, podcast whatever you want to call it, because we're dealing with a deteriorating situation at the White House that could go either way. So I'm going to run it through and we'll do fair analysis, as we always do, because that is very seldom seen in America today. What you've got is most of the press wanting to get President Trump out of office and then the other side is going to support him no matter what the facts are. So neither side is really fair. So on February 13th General Michael Flynn was forced to resign as national security adviser after just 24 days on the job. You remember that. OK. And the reason was that Flynn was not honest with Vice President Pence and others in the Trump administration about his dealings with Russia before he took the national security job. While the campaign was going under way after the election before President Trump was sworn in. So Flynn was caught in a bunch of lies untruths exaggerations whatever you want to call it. He's out. Then on February 14th Valentine's Day is a big meeting at the White House to discuss the departure of Flynn. So you got the Attorney General Sessions is there, Vice President Pence's there, the President's there, James Comey the head of the FBI. So President Trump wants to see Comey alone. OK. That's mistake number one. Very rarely do you ever want to be with anybody alone when you're president the United States. So apparently according to a leak from the FBI to the New York Times the conversation centers around. OK. Flynn is out. Maybe you can cut him a little slack on the criminal side or whatever. And he's done. So we hope, this is President Trump and I'm paraphrasing from an article, we hope it goes away or we hope that there's no more to it. So you can take that two ways you can say well he likes Flynn because he did say Flynn's a good guy and apparently Comey said yeah he is. This is by the report. And boy you can take it that the president is putting the arm on Comey saying look the FBI shouldn't do this anymore. It's impossible to know. OK. But the appearance is bad. That's why you always have to have somebody if you're the President with you. So then Comey and Trump finished their conversation. Comey goes back to the FBI headquarters apparently writes a memo about what happened. And puts the memo in his desk drawer. That's a CYA move. Cover your butt. OK. And in the memo he says well the president did this, president said that. And that was leaked out to the New York Times. Why? Because on May 9th Comey was fired. And his friends and I'm sure some people knew about it. But they send this memo or they read the memo. They didn't send the physical memo, but they told the New York Times reporter Here's what it said. And he puts in the paper and all hell breaks loose. Now interestingly enough the assistant McCabe of the FBI testified last week. There is no impediment to the investigation. Nobody told him not to pursue the Russian connection or Flynn or whatever. That's what McCabe says that helps President Trump because of McCabe's number two he should have known if Trump put the arm on Comey right. You would think. We don't know. We don't know what the tone of it was or anything like that. All we know is it's another leak. This one from the FBI into the press that doesn't like Trump, OK, in order to hurt the president. That's what we know. So now cable news goes crazy as it always does. All the anti-Trump people come on "Impeach impeach, impeach.†All of this structure of justice. Ba ba boom ba ba ba. I had to turn it off because none of these people are speaking honestly. They want to get Trump out of office. That's their goal. But on the other hand it is chaotic at the White House. It's chaotic. You have one after the other after the other after the other. So in order to survive and prosper President Trump's got to change and he's got to bring in a new communications team. And basically have somebody with him all the time who's going to be very methodical about the messaging. Now I'm not saying this to bolster the White House. I'm saying it for the good of the country. I mean we can't have every two days another so-called scandal. Now I told you yesterday I didn't think much of this Russian thing. All right. Because the conversation was about stemming ISIS you've got the Russian foreign minister the Russian ambassador. Trump is trying to say look you guys got to help us. Got to tell Vlad you've got to knock it off over here and get a full partnership into combating ISIS. And we found out X, Y and Z. That's a logical thing to say. And of course, Putin is just awful. He exploits this today by saying that he'll help the White House by handing over notes of the conversation or whatever. Hey Vlad, we don't need your help. All right. Whatever happened there, according to the National Security Adviser McMaster was appropriate. And I haven't seen any evidence to the contrary. Doesn't stop the anti-Trump people but now they have a much bigger deal. So what happens going forward? If I'm the president I understand how bad this Comey thing looks. That's number one. It looks bad because he fires Comey on May 9th and then on February 14th he says you know we hope this Flynn thing goes away and people are linking it. I don't know whether that's fair. But they're doing it. And Trump has said you know this Russian investigation is crazy and it's partisan and it's hurting the White House so it's all in that big, it's all in that big soup can. So what I'd do is I say I want an independent commission to look into it. Right? That's what I do if I'm president. I'd say let's have one. I didn't want one before. But now with this Comey business and his memo it's a he said, she said, I said, I say in the White House. Was quite clear that President Trump was not trying interfere in the investigation. They put out a statement but it's a he said she said. Comey is saying one thing. President Trump saying another thing. Right? So. So the FBI continues its investigation and I'm going to point to new FBI head. Senate and House they continue and we're going to put together an independent commission. I wouldn't call it a special prosecutor because there's no law breaking right now on the table. I'd say an independent commission. We'll get some good guys. You know the people trust and honor their cabinet and they'll oversee. They'll do a separate deal so that we have for going. Now some of you might say oh well it's a waste of money and waste of time. All that's true. But it would give President Trump some breathing room which he needs if he's going to continue to run the government. He's got a big trip on Friday. Does he want to be haunted by this thing? And number two. I'd hold a press conference tomorrow. If I were Mr. Trump. I'd take questions. OK. You know I know it looks bad. Ask me what you want and I'll answer. Not Spicer. Not Sarah Huckabee. Him. Takes some questions. Limited. I'd say you know, 20 minutes because you know you get repetition, repetition, repetition. But have a press conference. See, the American people need to see leadership here. And this is leadership. Establish a commission. Hold the press conference. That makes sense to everybody. Again, for the good of the country when taking politics out of it. Now I don't know whether President Trump is going to do anything like that. I continue to believe that the Russian thing is toothless as far as President Trump is concerned. Would've come out by now if he had done anything untoward. I believe that Flynn didn't tell the truth. Doesn't deserve to be there. He's gone and maybe a couple of guys in the Trump campaign early on benefited from Russia maybe they talked to them. OK. Let's find out. That's what I believe. I could be wrong but looking at all the evidence that's put forth and talking to the people involved. That's where I am. Do I believe that the president gave the Russians anything they didn't know on ISIS? No. I think the Russian intelligence knows that ISIS is trying to blow up airplanes. I think they know that so I'm not… I think that story is going to evaporate but this story the Comey versus Trump story it's not going to evaporate. It's going to be the. So if you're the leader of the country you try to manage it. And by having a press conference tomorrow by appointing an independent commission or have the Senate do it or whatever you want to do it. That'd be what I would do. All right now, I'm going to be interested to see your comments and questions on a message board spend a lot of time tomorrow on your reaction to this big story. I think I've covered it fairly. All right. It's a he said she said now because Trump says look that wasn't my intention at all to stop any investigation. I was just saying I hope we can get through this. I hope we can get by this because I don't want to see Flynn who served his country very well, you know hung. He lost his job. He's humiliated and hope we can get by this. That's Trump's POV. Comey, he's saying he felt uneasy or I didn't see the memo. But that's what's implied in the article. Now the leaks. The press would go nuts, but boy what do you do if you're, I said yesterday you got a polygraph people. Now you can't polygraph the FBI. Certainly polygraph anybody in the White House. He's got leaks, leaks, leaks and that's going to continue. That's another reason why you always need somebody with you. Because I mean this FBI thing was just boom.

O’Reilly On Trump Tax Reform: There Has To Be Accountability For Corporations, No Free Ride


Tuesday's edition of the new Bill O'Reilly podcast: Transcript via BillOReilly.com Hey BillOReilly.com Premium Members, and everybody else, because this week everyone gets to hear the No Spin News as we launch our special broadcast, Monday through Thursday 7:00pm Eastern Time, with news analysis and anything else I want to tell you. So, it is a lot of fun. Last night I guess about 750,000 people heard the broadcast – and if you didn't, we have it on file on our website, you just go to it, and you can hear it anytime – so we file them if you miss them, on the day of. So it's a good deal, it is a whole new world for me to get used to just doing news analysis on the net, but, you know, I don't have to have makeup – that's a really good thing. And this thing is going to work, and were going to expand it too, so I am glad you're there and I am glad you're with us. Starting on Monday, just Premium Members will get the No Spin News. So let's kick it off with the most important story of President Trump's tenure in office and that is – the tax cuts. Tomorrow is the day, according to a bunch of reports, that President Trump will announce what he wants to do. Now, what I said yesterday is that we are looking into it. What we have here is that he wants to propose a corporate tax rate and go from 35%, one of the highest in the world, to 15%, a humongous 20% drop. Okay, so the liberal press doesn't like that, says that if it passes, the Feds will lose $2.4 trillion in the next ten years. So the debt will skyrocket and the deficits will skyrocket. Deficits are yearly expenditures, debt is the total amount the country owes. So, here is how I see it. In order for American corporations to get this kind of break, they have to give back. So, they have to faze out deductions for the fat cats, like season tickets to the New York Giants, to the Cleveland Cavaliers. So you have to be able to write off some of that, but not all of it anymore, to make up for the increased profits that you are going to have. Also, if you are holding money overseas, you are going to have to bring it back. There has got to be accountability for the corporations. This can't be a free ride, because the country needs roads, and a military, and it needs protections, which costs money. So, I think it can work, because if corporate America gets a favorable tax rate, they are going to expand – and that means that more jobs will be created, and that means your wages will go up. And the country will be more prosperous. So, that is the theory, but I have got to see some discipline layered into this. Now, on the individual tax rate – which, on the BillOReilly.com poll last night said that this is the biggest issue for you guys – the individual tax cuts. We don't know yet. He is going to bring them down – we don't know yet what the percentages will be. It will probably about four – one for me that will be mid 30s, then people making a pretty good living, they will be in the high 20s, and then the working class will be in the low 20s, and then there will be something for people that don't make much money in the teens. That is the way I see it. So, all these tax cuts are going to be resisted by liberal democrats who don't want anything like that, they want the government to tax more and more and more – but I think they will get through. They will get through, and if they do, then President Trump has a good chance to be successful in his first term, because I can't see any way that this does not stimulate the economy. The stock market is thrilled – thrilled – about all this, so you see it going up, up, up, up, up. That is not that important to you guys, but it is an indicator that people believe that tax cuts will stimulate the economy. Okay. The wall. The Trump administration is backing away from tying funding of the border wall between the U.S.A. and Mexico with the budget, okay, because they know that, again, the left does not want a wall, does not want it built, does not want to pay for it. Now, it seems to me that the Trump administration can get the funding for the wall in a different form, a different way, probably through Homeland Security funds, and that is what they are going to have to do. I don't think they can tie it in, because you don't want to have a government shutdown and all that catastrophe, it's just – you know why I don't want it? I don't want it because it is just boring! Boring, I don't want to talk about it. Find the money someplace else you can build – and you're not going to build the wall from Brownsville to San Diego. But in the places you need it, you build it! You can do it! While we're on the subject of money, reports say Barack Obama is going to give his speech to Cantor Fitzgerald in September. They're a big investment banking firm here in New York City – and get $400,000 to speak. Whoa! Whoa. Here's how this works, because President Obama is with the guy who books my speeches! So I know how this works. So he gets $400k, the booking agent gets 15% percent of that. So, in that case it would be around $50 grand, right? So Mr. Obama is going to clear $350,000 going to give a speech, shake some hands, photo op, sit there for dinner, you know, five hour commitment.
And what do I think about that? I think it's good! It's capitalism. He's a big name. He's a draw. OK. I don't have any beef with it. I'm not jealous. I get a lot of money to speak. So, he's on a par now with Bill Clinton gets that kind of money, or at least used to. I can't imagine Bill Clinton getting it now, but he used to get around that. Now here's a very interesting story that nobody's covering – Russia and Putin are giving arms, weapons, to Iran, which is turning around and sending them to the Taliban in Afghanistan, western Afghanistan. So Putin is actually – and you know, in the interview I did with President Trump at the Super Bowl, on Super Bowl weekend, so Putin is actually killing Americans. Again, again, this guy Putin is so bad, so bad. Now, President Trump's got to know that. And what do you do? What do you do? See, I would, if I were president, I would meet with Putin. I would, I'd meet with him, and I would look him in the eye, and I would say, Vlad. Look. You've got to stop. You got to stop the Syria stuff. You got to stop them arms to Iran, they are getting into Taliban hands and killing Americans, you've got to stop. And if you do stop, we're going to have a good economic relationship with you that is going to help your country and help you. And if you don't, we're going to find a way to hurt you. I've always said the way to hurt hurt Russia is to convince American credit card companies not to take any receipts from that country. So Visa, MasterCard, American Express – we are not going to do business with Russia. And you could do it, Trump could do that. Boy, that would just – oh, that would murder them. You throw in Barclays in London? If they would get on board? Ooh! So, those are the kinds of things you can do. Now, in the theater of the absurd. At Princeton University, they did a study, and they said that the finding of the study, says robots can be just as biased as humans, and there is gender and racial bias in artificial intelligence. According to research is robots have exhibited racist and sexist word associations, such as connecting women with families and households but not professionalism or careers. So everybody's mad at the robots. The main scientific findings that we're able to show, and I'm quoting now, prove that language reflects biases, says Aylin Caliskan of Princeton University's Center for Information Technology Policy. All right, so you programmed these robots with the English language and immediately the robots are biased and racist. I mean OK I shouldn't laugh I guess. Crazy, crazy, crazy world. We don't like bias and racism. We fight against that, always have. But, you know the robots, I don't, I don't know. I don't know what we do here.

Bill O’Reilly: “Confident The Truth Will Come Out” About Departure From Fox News


Bill O'Reilly briefly commented on the circumstances of his departure from Fox News Channel last week on his 'No Spin News' podcast, which is available for free this week. BILL O'REILLY: I am sad that I'm not on television anymore. I was very surprised how it all turned out. I can't say a lot, because there's much stuff going on right now. But I can tell you that I'm very confident the truth will come out, and when it does, I don't know if you're going to be surprised – but I think you're going to be shaken, as I am. There's a lot of stuff involved here. Now, I can't say anymore because I just don't want to influence the flow of the information. I don't want the media to take what I say and misconstrue it. However you, as a loyal O'Reilly listener, have a right to know, I think, down the lane what exactly happened. And we are working in that direction, okay? Full transcript, via Bill O'Reilly: So, we are going to have a full week of news analysis here, and we're going to read letters off the Message Boards. So, if you're a Premium Member, that's going to be like the Viewer Mail, the Message Boards. And I've got six letters that I'm going to read tonight. And we'll answer them honestly, as we always do. So, the Top Story that I want to tell you about, that I think is very interesting, is there are a couple of polls about President Trump today. One is the Washington Post, and they basically have Trump's approval rating around 40%, 42%. His disapproval rating in the low 50s. All of the polls say the same thing: well, this is unprecedented, no president in his first hundred days polled this low. But then they deceive, as the mainstream media does, on a daily basis. No president has ever entered office with as much negative publicity and hatred directed toward him as Donald Trump. In the history of our republic, no president has come under that kind of withering criticism, particularly by the press that wanted Hillary Clinton to win. So, we expect it from the Democratic Party, and if the roles were reversed, the Republican Party would be slaughtering Hillary Clinton. That's what parties do. But the press is supposed to be objective and certainly, certainly, they are not. They want to destroy Trump's presidency. So, for him to poll in the low 40s favorable isn't that bad! But here's the kicker: in the Washington Post poll, it says that if an election were held tomorrow, Donald Trump would still beat Hillary Clinton 43% to 40% in a hypothetical rematch tomorrow. And only 2% of those who voted for Donald Trump regret their vote. So, the president needs to be a little more… don't react to these polls… a little more circumspect. The base, for him, is still there, and not discouraged. The majority of Americans still prefer him over Hillary Clinton to run the country. I mean, these are coming out of the Washington Post and liberal precincts. So it's an interesting poll, fascinating poll. And I think that Donald Trump has calmed down a little bit as far as his tweeting and all that business, and that's a good thing. Get stuff done – and we will get into that in a moment. Now, there are a couple of big stories this week, so I hope you stay with us on these broadcasts so you can stay up to date. The beauty of this is you can listen to it anytime; we'll have it on BillOReilly.com. It's not appointment viewing as television is… although you've got the DVRs and all that. Right now, the Trump administration wants to get a budget that includes funding for the wall, and of course the Democrats don't want that. So, this is a real interesting situation—how they're going to get a budget passed, because if they don't, the government is supposed to shut down on Friday. This always happens. You've heard it a million times. They'll get an extension. But they're trying to get money aside to build the wall. We all remember the Trump campaign promise, well, Mexico will pay for the wall—they're not going to pay for it up front. I told you then, I'll tell you now: it's going to be a tax on Mexico in some way, shape, or form that's going to reimburse the U.S.A. But first, the money has to be allocated by Congress to build the wall and it's expensive. So that's an ongoing story this week. You also have new definition—and this is very, very big—on the healthcare, the Trump healthcare, what that's going to be, and proposed tax cuts. I'm hearing that's going to come Wednesday. One of the reasons that Donald Trump's approval ratings aren't higher is because people are looking for him to fulfill campaign promises like the revocation of Obamacare, and a new replacement that's better. That hasn't happened. And the big one—and this really the key to Donald Trump's whole presidency—is this tax cut. What's it going to look like? If we get an unveiling this week, that's going to be big. And I can't give you any advance. I might have something tomorrow; I might, we are working on it. We might have something tomorrow, but we don't have anything right now. Now as some of you know, I was over in Europe last week, in Italy, a great vacation, and we were watching the French presidential election. This is really very interesting, because it has to do with extremism. And of course, extremism hurts America as well as every other country in the world. So, the right-wing populist candidate, Marine Le Pen, came in second. Unheard of three years ago. She was a fringe. And a centrist businessman named Emmanuel Macron came in first. They now run against each other on May 7th. Now, Macron is going to win because Le Pen, her people are jazzed, but there's just not enough of them. Macron will get from the other candidates who lost, he'll take from them. So he'll win. But the message is that even the French, primarily social Democrats, they've had it with the extremism. 10% of the French population is now Muslim, and they live together, they don't blend. I'm generally speaking now. And inside that 10%, maybe a half a percent are extremists, but they have a good place to hide, and they can cause a lot of damage as they do. The French people are furious. In Italy, it was interesting because wherever we went, particularly in Rome, there were Special Forces, Italian Special Forces, heavily armed. Armored cars, we're talking about around the Colosseum and all the tourist places because they don't want the terrorists to drive trucks in. Everywhere you looked there were Special Forces in Italy, and there really hasn't been a terrorist incident in Italy. But they're all over the place. So, Europe has changed and it's a scary thing. The next story that caught my eye concerns our pal, Ann Coulter. She is supposed to speak at UC Berkeley–a place I would never in a million years go to. That means that Ann Coulter is a much braver person than I am. She's set to speak there, but they don't want her to speak there—the snowflakes, you know. The Berkeley College Republican Club is threating to sue the university for violation of freedom of speech if Ms. Coulter does not appear. Because the dodge that the colleges use is that they cancel the event due to "security concerns.†This Republican club isn't buying it. They're saying that if she doesn't appear, we're going to file a lawsuit. Interesting, very, very interesting. I fear for Ann's safety and for others, conservative people primarily. I fear for their safety. As I said, I would not do this thing even if invited, because I know the danger, not just to me, it's not about me, but to other people. These people on the far left are really insane and dangerous. Even Bernie Sanders came out and said, hey this is wrong, let Ann Coulter speak. Sanders, I never had a problem with him as a guy. You know, obviously he's a socialist and will never answer questions about places like Venezuela, things like that. So, he doesn't earn my respect in that arena, but I don't think he's a bad guy. And I think he's got a clear vision of right and wrong. Finally, President Obama resurfacing in Chicago, holding some discussions. And he's good at that. The former president is really, really good at discussing things. Now, the violence in Chicago is down a little bit from year to year, down from last year, but still horrendous, horrible. Murders all over the place, shootings all over the place. But the president is going in there, the former president, I don't want you to get mixed up with Trump, they're going to discuss things. Ok, does anybody out there think anything is ever going to happen from these discussions? Anyone? I think someday Barack Obama is going to be President of the United Nations. I think he's going to run that place. Because that's what they do. They discuss. So, welcome back, Mr. Obama, from your South Pacific vacation. I hope your discussions are fruitful, but I'm going to point everybody to a story I have in my book Old School, and thank you very much for supporting that book. Enormous success, number one all over the place. I write about My Brother's Keeper program–which I thought was an excellent, excellent initiative by the Obama administration – and how I got involved with it, and tried to raise them tens of millions of dollars, but got stonewalled. It's a fascinating story in Old School. You might want to check that out. Okay! So, let's wrap things up with the message boards. People writing in, we want to encourage that. We'll do it every day. Whatever you want to know, I'll try to answer. The first comes from Dozier, that's an interesting name: Is BillOReilly.com Premium Membership going to continue? What about the No Spin Tours? Yes. And Premium Membership is skyrocketing. Thousands of people signed up when we announced we're going to do these broadcasts every night. That's going to be the basis of our presentation going forward. The tours are selling briskly. Great Father's and Mother's Day gifts. We'll see everybody in Baltimore at the Royal Farms Arena on Friday, September 22nd. Tampa the next night, Saturday, September 23rd. VIP seats already sold out in Tampa, that's at the Amalie Arena. Then we're going out to Caesars Palace in Vegas on December 15th, a great early Christmas gift. VIP seats sold out in Caesars Palace already, wow. The next night, the big one, Anaheim, California at the Honda Center, huge venue. VIP seats sold out, but plenty of good seats remain on December 16th in Anaheim, California. So, the tour goes on, it's blast, you'll love it. What else do we have to tell you…oh, I want to read more mail. I almost lost my train of thought there. When you go on vacation for ten days, you're kind of foggy coming back. This is from John: It was definitely "Old School†to wish Fox News the best. Look, I was there for twenty years and six months. We made history, put cable news on the map and were successful all that time. No ebb and flow, just straight up graph. You know, that vehicle was fabulous for me and I said in the beginning that I'm sad, but why wouldn't I wish them the best? They were there, we performed well for them, and that's the fact. Kevin: I live in Indonesia and had to buy a special satellite dish so I could watch The Factor, now I've become a BillOReilly.com Premium Member so I can keep up with the real news. You're costing me money, Bill. Look, Kevin, we love you in Indonesia, ok? But $50 for Premium Membership? You get a free book! Ok, so that cuts in half. Then you get humongous discounts on all our great stuff if you go to the store. And we ship to Indonesia, so you make it up. It's almost free. But I appreciate your loyalty over there. Stay safe. Here's Richard, he says that: I may not always agree with you O'Reilly, but I always find you compelling, and I'm going to keep hearing from you so I've signed up for BillOReilly.com Premium Membership. Well, I appreciate that, Richard. When you disagree with me – and this is very important for all the BillOReilly.com listeners – please post on the Message Boards. Let me know. I'm not always right. We like to hear from you guys, you're the bedrock of the country. I'm just the messenger. Susan, this is really a good post, Susan, Sunrise Beach, Missouri. She says: Drain the swamp was my favorite campaign promise, don't know how our president can do it, but I say term limits are the answer. Supreme Court, retire at seventy-five. Congress, three terms of two years. Senators, two terms. No pensions. No more voting on your raises. No more government healthcare. No more special rules. I like it. I like it, Susan. I think term limits should be instituted. Now, if Trump tries that he's going to get hammered because of course special interests in congress don't want that. But I think it's noble and I think your post was excellent. Finally, I'm going to go to Rambo. Now Rambo lives in Bend, Oregon. This is perfect, Bend and Rambo. There's a lot of forests out there in Oregon, I used to work in Portland. A lot of room to roam, Rambo. He says: Bernie Sanders is now being called the new champion of the Marxist mafia. How in the greatest capitalist country, the most prosperous county ever, does such a person exist? That's a good question, Rambo. Bernie exists because there is a segment of the American population, perhaps 25%, maybe lower, that don't believe in capitalism, that don't want to compete in the marketplace. They want everything laid out, cradle to grave. They want the government to run the show, okay? So with 20-25% of the people thinking that way, and it's more in certain states like Vermont, where Sanders is from, and there's more in California, more in Massachusetts. Elizabeth Warren could never get elected anywhere south of the Mason-Dixon Line. You can prosper if you pick your location. Socialism is a disaster, alright? When I was in Italy, I had some guys taking us around, and all of them said, we don't work more than thirty, thirty-five hours a week because it's not worth it, over a certain amount the government takes it all. And of course, they wanted to be paid off the books. I felt bad for them. I felt bad for the younger people, it robs them of incentive in Italy because you earn over a certain amount of money, and the government is in for 90% of it. Who's going to do that? Nobody does that. So therefore, the incentive to develop, the incentive to succeed, the incentive to hustle, it's all gone. That's what Bernie stands for. But some people buy it. So I hope you enjoyed the first edition of the No Spin News, and I hope it wasn't boring. If we can improve it, let us know in the Message Boards, because we are ramping up this week. And, you know, this is all new, and we'll get better, and we'll get pithier, and we'll have a lot of fun going forward. Thank you for your loyalty, and for being Premium Members. I'm Bill O'Reilly, and we'll talk to you again tomorrow at 7:00 Eastern Time.

‘War On Cops’ Author: “Hysterical” Students Protesting My Event Bring To Mind “The French Revolution”


On Monday night's edition of the O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly spoke with Heather Mac Donald about about student protests which shut down an event where she was scheduled to speak at Claremont McKenna College last week. Mac Donald, the author of "The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe," said that protesting students reached an hysterical level of anger and called her a "white supremacist fascist" for saying "there is no government agency more dedicated to the idea that black lives matter more than the police." "I have to confess, without wanting to sound hyperbolic, or melodramatic, I got a little clue of what it would feel like to be in the French Revolution, waiting for the mob to bring you to the guillotine. There was a level of hysteria, and you don't know what is going to happen next," she said. The message she wanted to deliver to the students: The Black Lives Matter narrative is completely false. We are not living through an epidemic of racially biased police shootings." Below, some footage from the protest:

O’Reilly: “Unfortunately, Policing The World Falls To America With All The Danger”


Bill O'Reilly's Talking Points 4/10; Plus reaction from Charles Krauthammer: BILL O'REILLY: As we reported last week, the president's job approval numbers are likely to go up because he took strong action against Syria after the tyrant Assad gassed his own people. Right off the bat Mr. Trump went up three percent in a new CBS News poll. That is likely to rise even further this week. When CBS asked, do you approve or disapprove of the U.S. launching missiles against Syria? 57% approve
36% disapprove
8% don't know. Do you have confidence in Donald Trump's ability to handle the situation in Syria? 41% confident
54% not confident And finally, do you think it's necessary for Congress to approve any further U.S. action in Syria? A whopping 69% say it is that Congress should get involved.
25% do not feel it's necessary. There are a number of developments on the military front. U.S. warships are heading toward the Korean Peninsula because the nutty dictator of that country continues to test ballistic missiles in violation of international law. Also the two U.S. warships in the eastern Mediterranean continue to monitor Syria. There's also an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, the George H.W. Bush. So you can see that President Trump and the Pentagon are sending signals that if world order is threatened, America will respond. It's just a damn shame that we are the only country willing to take this stand. There is no reason for Russia to prop up Assad in Syria, the man is a war criminal. Also, China does not try to control the North Korea situation when it absolutely could. Staunch allies like Britain, Australia, Canada and France do help us out, but it's on a limited basis. Unfortunately policing the world falls to America, with all the danger and expense that entails. President Trump would be wise to pick his spots. The attack on Syria worked and was approved by most in the world who care about protecting innocent people. Yes, Russia and Iran are now threatening the USA, but so what? Those countries have thrown in with the devil, and we cannot back away from their bluster. However, a confrontation with Russia is not what anybody needs, so President Trump would be wise to talk to Putin quietly and try to get the guy to wise up by helping his economy. Iran is truly a hopeless situation, but the mullahs do not want to commit suicide. How the nuke treaty will eventually play out is one of the great world mysteries. It is likely that North Korea will be the next problem we have to deal with. If they test a nuclear device again in violation of international law, something must be done. Can Donald Trump convince the Chinese to partner up with us against North Korea? That would end the problem and be good for world order and business. Again, it is a mystery why the Chinese will not exert their strength and influence on North Korea. Summing up, President Trump gained a measure of respect for his actions against Syria, the U.S. military is gearing up, but caution is the word.

O’Reilly: It Has Been A Good Week For President Trump


Bill O'Reilly's 'Talking Points Memo' 4/6/2017; Plus reaction from Newt Gingrich. If you've noticed an uptick in the media Trump hatred, it is no accident. After a few rocky weeks, the president has had a very good few days. He met with the president of Egypt and the king of Jordan, both men praising him lavishly. This is important because Egypt and Jordan are helping America in the fight against ISIS. Also, Mr. Trump got an enormous break when the Susan Rice story hit. Whether the former national security advisor did anything wrong or not, the story has taken attention away from allegations about the Russia-Trump campaign stuff. Even though the left-wing media does not want to cover the Susan Rice story, fair news agencies like the Fox News Channel are discussing it and the American people are aware of it. That helps deflect the liberal bias against President Trump. And then there is the looming appointment of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Democrats in the Senate blocked a vote today, but now Republicans have changed the rules and the judge is likely to be confirmed tomorrow. That's a big win for President Trump because the judge is a traditional man who will not rule on his own political beliefs, as some Supreme Court justices do. Gorsuch is despised on the left because they know he could be on the court for decades, and he is not going to carry water for anyone. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if some conservative Americans are disappointed by Justice Gorsuch because he is not a political guy. All in all, President Trump has nominated a fair man to the court, a person who will not buy into the myth that the United States needs to be changed in dramatic ways. Finally, Mr. Trump will meet with the Chinese president, an avowed communist, over the next couple days as he hopes to get China's help to subdue North Korea, which has become a major threat to the world. Mr. Trump also wants to modify trade deals so more American products are sold in China, which is the most populated country on earth with nearly a billion-and-a-half people. So things have gone very well this week for Donald Trump. But every day is an adventure. However, it is safe to say the Trump haters are very frustrated this evening. And that's the memo.

O’Reilly: Do DC Power Players Want To Know The Truth?


Bill O'Reilly's 'Talking Points Memo': You may remember that the IRS was accused of auditing some conservative groups for political reasons. That is illegal. The woman in charge of the office where that allegedly happened was Lois Lerner. She was called to testify in front of a congressional committee. She took the Fifth: March 22, 2013 – House Oversight Committee hearing: LOIS LERNER: "And while I would very much like to answer the committee's questions today, I've been advised by my counsel to assert my constitutional right not to testify or answer questions related to the subject matter of this hearing.†So after that Ms. Lerner packed up and left the IRS with a nice government pension. Absolutely nothing happened to her. And we never learned if higher government officials were involved. However, we did learn this when I asked President Obama about the IRS situation: O'REILLY: "You're saying no corruption?†OBAMA: "No.†O'REILLY: "None? No?†OBAMA: "There were some — there were some bone-headed decisions…†O'REILLY: "Bone-headed decisions…†OBAMA: "– out of — out of a local office…†O'REILLY: "But no mass corruption?†OBAMA: "Not even mass corruption, not even a smidgeon of corruption, I would say.†Talking Points believes the Obama administration did not want to know what happened with the IRS. The leftwing media did not want to know, nor did the Democratic Party. Today we have two big time political allegations: Whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia and whether National Security Advisor Susan Rice was spying on the Trump campaign and transition team using her position with President Obama to surveil and hurt Mr. Trump. Answers to both of those questions have not been provided to the American people, as they must be if we are to keep our election system legitimate. The FBI is investigating the Russia deal. I'm not sure where the agency is on the illegal surveillance issue. The bureau has not defined it. But Congress is looking into Ms. Rice: SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY): "I have asked the Intelligence Committee, Senator Burr, Senator Warner, to conduct a bipartisan investigation of this whole episode. They will conduct it and hopefully, in the end, we will find out what happened, and they will issue a report, I hope on a bipartisan basis.†Not likely, as Democrats and the liberal media have already acquitted Susan Rice. REP. ADAM SCHIFF (D-CA): "One of the central figures the Republicans went after and after and after was Susan Rice. And after two years they could find nothing that Susan Rice did wrong.†Congressman Schiff, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, speaking about Ms. Rice's role in the Benghazi investigation and putting forth the opinion that she is a scapegoat even before any testimony is heard. Does Congressman Schiff really want to know what happened in the surveillance deal? You make the call. But it is obvious his fellow travelers on the left do not want to know. In fact, the loons are now branding the whole thing racial. DAVID CORN, MOTHER JONES: "Did she do something wrong? There is no information indicating that. So they are making her, you know, basically, they're defaming her without any reason to do so because she's a woman. Maybe because she's a black woman.†Sure. As Talking Points said yesterday, Susan Rice is entitled to the presumption of innocence and should be called by Congress to testify as soon as possible. But with Easter break looming, that call will be down the road. At that time I expect Ms. Rice to take the Fifth, just as Lois Lerner did. That means others in government will have to step forward to testify about what Susan Rice did or did not do in order for we the people to know. Today President Trump said that he believes the surveillance situation is "going to be the biggest story. It's such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time." It is clear the president has a vested interest in this having tweeted he was surveilled by President Obama himself. So obviously Mr. Trump would like to know the truth. But the anti-Trump folks will try to prevent sunlight on Susan Rice, no question about it. Because if the former national security advisor was using her very high office to help the Democratic Party before and after the election, that is a huge scandal and President Obama will have to be questioned. That's a big if, and premature conclusions as well as speculation are the enemies of true justice. The polls say that most Americans want answers to the Russian intrusion into the presidential election, and I believe most of us want to know the full Susan Rice story as well. If the federal government cannot define both fairly quickly, this nation is in major trouble. America simply has to have a justice system that works. And that's the memo.

O’Reilly: The Brawl Over Sanctuary Cities


BILL O'REILLY: As you may know, the federal government is threatening cities that do not cooperate with Homeland Security with the loss of federal grant money. And now the city of Seattle is suing the feds over that. The first of many lawsuits, I believe. The basic problem is that cities like Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco do not want to hold illegal aliens they've arrested until ICE can pick them up. Those cities want to release the aliens on bail or their own recognizance. Talking Points believes that is dangerous and irresponsible. If there is a detainer request on someone who should not be in this country, that request should be honored. The sanctuary city people say they will obey a warrant for an illegal alien. But that is a much more complicated process. Immigration agents have to go to a federal judge and present evidence before a warrant will be signed. Takes much more time than a detainer, which just requires the signature of an ICE agent. In a moment, Judge Jeanine Pirro will tell us about the backlog of cases, which is astronomical. Now, why is all this happening? In a city like New York, the mayor is a far left individual who was elected by very liberal voters. Mayor de Blasio sees himself as a defender of the poor and downtrodden. He opposes immigration regulations in general and is fine with millions of undocumented people living in and visiting this city. De Blasio has absolutely no problem with that. So the mind set of de Blasio, Rahm Emanuel in Chicago and other far left mayors is that their constituency wants open borders and amnesty. So they play to that constituency. Enter the federal government, which now wants to enforce immigration law because President Trump made that a hallmark of his campaign. And so you have two opposing forces with little chance of reconciliation. It should be noted that the federal appeals courts have never required local governments to comply with detainer requests. It's optional. You can't be arrested if you defy a detainer. An official can be arrested if he or she defies a warrant. Finally, to make sanctuary cities comply with federal law, the Trump administration will now withhold money from them in the form of Justice Department grants. That means that cities like Seattle, which receive millions of dollars to beef up local law enforcement and to institute safety programs, may not get the money any longer. Which is why Seattle is suing. The whole thing is a giant mess and reflects the huge division in this country. Will sanctuary cities be forced to comply? Doubtful. But they will pay a price.

Sessions To O’Reilly: 80% Of People Believe Sanctuary Cities Are Wrong, “Makes Their Own Cities Less Safe”


Attorney General Jeff Sessions talked to Bill O'Reilly about the debate over sanctuary cities in an interview Thursday night on the FOX News Channel. "Entries at the border are down 60% just because of President Trump's strong leadership. As we continue to build a wall and bring in more judges, we'll be even more successful. If we stay at it, we can create a lawful system of immigration that admits 1.1-million people every year legally," Sessions stated. "80% of the American people believe these sanctuary cities are wrong… and it clearly makes their own cities less safe," Sessions also said.
