IS GERALDO RIVERA THE BIGGEST MORON EMPLOYED BY FOX NEWS???

1034

These days it’s become increasingly difficult to determine who’s the bigger moron employed by Fox News, Jerry Rivers (Geraldo) or Juan Williams.  This past Monday during an exchange on the Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” Jerry seemed to take the lead. It was then that Jerry claimed to be “ashamed” of the way migrants attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border are being treated.  Jerry seems totally oblivious to the fact that these people are trying to break into our house, and no matter how badly they may want to come in, the way they are currently going about it is simply not acceptable. Jerry apparently thinks our front door should be left wide open.

It was in discussing border patrol agents use of tear gas that Jerry said. “This goes to my soul. Fulfilling my role as the designated piñata on Fox News, I want to say I am ashamed. The tear gas choked me. We treat these people — these economic refugees — as if they’re zombies from ‘The Walking Dead.’ We arrested 42 people, eight of them were women with children! We have to deal with this problem humanely and with compassion. These are not invaders. Stop using these military analogies. This is absolutely painful to watch!”  Jerry seems to have forgotten entirely how it was that his hero, Barry ‘O’, had also authorized the use of tear gas, but then I digress.

Anyway, Jerry went on to add, “We are a nation of immigrants. These are desperate people. They walked 2,000 miles. Why? Because they want to rape your daughter or steal your lunch? No. Because they want a job! They want to fill the millions of unfilled jobs we have in the agricultural sector. They want to wash dishes in the restaurants. They want to deliver the pizzas. For goodness sake! We suspend our humanity when it comes to this issue, and I fear that it is because they look different than the mainstream.”  Look, it doesn’t really matter why they want to come here, the bottom line is that they can’t come here simply because they WANT to.

What we have here, on Jerry’s part, is yet another example of willful ignorance. He’s simply choosing to ignore the massive imbalance of fighting aged males to ‘families’, the preponderance of stories of economic migration rather than asylum, the cynical use of the few women and children pushed to the front of the mob throwing projectiles at our cops, and most of all the criminals of all types that inhabit this ‘caravan.’  That and the fact that they are, by definition, illegal.  All we are asking for is a LEGAL way to manage this mess.  Instead, the Left demands population anarchy, and a borderless nation.  Don’t like the laws, then simply ignore them.

Jerry really isn’t fooling anyone.  And he’s either lying or simply deluding himself when he repeats the ‘agricultural’ and ‘dishwasher’ jobs nonsense as he and any number of others on the left have done for decades.  Look at where the millions who have entered the country illegally, over the course of the last 40 years, are now.  If this illegal tsunami is allowed to continue, the only thing left of the American Pie for our children and our children’s children will be but a few crumbs, and very small crumbs at that.  But you see that doesn’t really matter to folks like Jerry.  Because these illegals are far more worthy than those of us born and raised here.

And let’s be real here, contrary to all that Jerry would just love us all to believe, these are not all desperate people who walked 2000 miles. Many have been bussed from place to place, most if not all have been provided with food and water, as they move on to the border.  And then it’s once they get there that what few women and children that there are are pushed to the front as those behind throw rocks at agents, ensuring that there are plenty of pictures taken of women and children running away. This is all nothing more than a political stunt and always has been.   And let’s not forget, Jerry, that these zombies HAVE citizenship, in their OWN countries.

And they’re not refugees nor are they asylum seekers. They are illegals and they are trying to use their numbers to overwhelm our border patrol in order to gain entry into this country. They have no respect for our laws and they have no respect for the United States as a country.  And if you were to ask most of them, they would tell you they would rather live in their own country, but there are no jobs. They don’t want to be American citizens, and they have no interest whatsoever in assimilating, they just want jobs, to have their babies in this country kids, and to then worm their way into America’s wonderful, and overly generous, entitlement system.

And who but a brain dead liberal would think it acceptable for U.S. taxpayers to essentially subsidize, courtesy of increasingly higher taxes, those corporations who seek only to increase their profits by nothing more than the suppressing of wages to the point where their employees have no alternative other than to depend on what are our rather numerous public assistance programs just to be able to provide for themselves and their families?  You would think that Jerry would be ashamed of that, but nope, not even a little.  Apparently he sees absolutely nothing wrong with such crony-capitalism as long as those here illegally are allowed to stay.

Whenever you ask old Jerry, or any of his leftwing cohorts, just how many of those seeking a way in we should allow to stay, you never really get much of an answer.   Considering that there are more than a few billion ‘poor’ people on the planet who would like nothing more than to come to America, how many should we allow in?  And at what cost, and I’m not just talking about the cost in tax dollars.  The vast majority of those seeking entry are either low skill or no skill workers.  So who pays the price when these people come in and are willing to work for less, a lot less?  More often than not it’s those in our minority communities who wind up on the losing end.

Personally what I’m ashamed of is the fact that we have so many people like Jerry, who continually side with those who sneak into our country over those who have lost loved ones at the hands of someone here illegally.  It pains me to watch those interviews with those who have had their loved ones murdered by illegal scum who, even after having been deported numerous times, was still able to get back in this country long enough to take another life or rape another innocent victim.  I care nothing for these people trying to break into my country.  They don’t want to be Americans, therefore they are not welcome here.

JERRY RIVERS, AKA GERALDO RIVERA, “WE NEED OPEN BORDERS!!!”

Geraldo 5

I often find myself being a bit confused whenever trying to determine who it is that is the bigger empty-headed progressive who routinely appears on Fox News.  It’s become far more difficult to choose in recent years as there are now far more many candidates from which to choose.  But out of all them there are two who, like turds in the toilet bowl, routinely float to the top.  And they are, of course, Jerry Rivers, aka Geraldo Rivera, and his fellow liberal nutjob, Juan Williams.  Adding together the IQs of these two imbeciles wouldn’t even get you out of single digits, and yet there they are on Fox News, and pretty regularly, as if anyone with half a brain gives a squat about their opinion may be on any of the more important topics of the day.

Now not to say that Williams hasn’t made some of his trademark nutty statements of late, my focus here will be on some of the more recent nonsense uttered by Jerry, aka Geraldo.  Because, you see, it was very recently that Jerry made the rather idiotic claim that President Trump is, as well as are many other Americans, simply being too harsh in their skepticism of these migrant caravans of illegals defiantly waving their own nations’ flags while doing the best that they can to stamped across our southern border.  Personally, it seems to be that that’s a gesture one would expect to see from an invading army, not the conciliatory posture one would expect to see from refugees desperate to flee their ‘oppressive’ countries.

It was during a recent appearance on ‘Fox and Friends’, one of the very few things I watch on the network these days, that the 75 year old and somewhat senile, Jerry went so far as to say, “You’re being way too harsh.”   And it was from there that he then went on to say, “These are very unsophisticated people. They are an uneducated group. They cling to some symbols of stability in their lives. All they want to do is feed their children.”  Right, but that’s just what Americans want too but without having to subsidize all of these illegals.  To me a mass horde of uneducated, poor people flooding into the United States sounds like little more than a recipe for how to destroy a first-world country and as well as our now thriving economy.

What apparently caused Jerry to slip a cog, so to speak, was President Trump’s observation that these caravans of migrants are not refugees with legitimate claims of asylum, but are, instead, merely opportunists hoping to enter the U.S. illegally so they can then proceed to scam what is our many, overly generous, public assistance programs.  And has been reported by a number of outlets is how most of these migrants refused offers of asylum and employment in Mexico, saying they want only to come to the U.S.  Oh and by the way, child smugglers, MS-13 gang members, and potential terrorists have also infiltrated these caravans.  Remember when Democrats opposed illegal immigration?  But that was then, before it was racist.

President Trump said: “They come up and they are talking about all their great fear [they feel in their own countries], all their problems with their countries — but they are all waving their countries’ flags. What is that all about?”  And he went on to ask, “If they have such fear and such problems and they hate their countries, why do we see all the flags being waved — for Guatemala, for Honduras, for El Salvador? We are seeing these flags all over the place. Why are they waving those flags?”  And while Jerry may disagree, the president correctly reasoned, “This has nothing to do with asylum. This has to do with getting into our country illegally. And we have to know who wants to come into our country.”  I could not agree more.

These days I have pretty much of a zero interest in anything that Fox’s two resident phonies have to say.  Jerry has a rather long history of being little more than a publicity whore, and to this day I’ve never quite been able to figure out why it is exactly that he continues to be taken seriously as some sort of ‘journalist.’  From his ‘discovering’ Al Capone’s lost hideout in a cave in Chicago (which showed no evidence of his claim} to his posing as a self-proclaimed “war correspondent” in Iraq (which caused our military to have him removed from the country), he has had no credibility regardless of topic.  And Williams is nothing more than a stooge for the Democrat Party who spews nothing more than the talking points provided to him.

And who is it that flies the flag of a country they are willfully leaving?  They come here with hat in hand begging to be let into a country which doesn’t have any obligation to take them in.  About 29% of all Mexicans that come to our country actually go to work.  The rest decide its far better just to depend on various welfare programs.  That’s 71% costs millions and millions of dollars per year.  Once upon a time when immigrants came to America they had to show that they had a skill and could support themselves.  But not anymore.  Most of them don’t support themselves at all.  And most see life in America as a free ride. They have zero interest in becoming American, their only interest is in living off the rest of us.

Now I don’t know about any of you, but personally, I don’t want more uneducated people in the United States.  Heaven knows our public school system is doing a pretty good job of that already.  When you have uneducated parents that don’t value education, it becomes harder to educate.  And it only makes matters worse when you add to this illegal immigrants and their children who don’t even speak English.  The only people who want this country overrun with uneducated illegals are the Democrats and those businesses who want cheap labor.  We should deny any entry done illegally, demand that immigrants come with income to support themselves (no food stamps, no free health care, no free housing) and ONLY if they speak English.

And by the way, it’s according to the U.N. that of the 20 most violent countries in the world 16 of them are located in Latin America.  Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world.  Many of the border crashers are from Honduras and most of ‘them’ are young males, the most crime prone segment of any population.  And have ever noticed how it is that the loudest advocates for open borders are those like Jerry, and his fellow leftwing buddy Juan, who live in gated communities and therefore would never be forced to contend with illegals taking up residence in their neighborhoods?  But it’s the rest of us who can’t afford to do the same who are the ones who are said to be “to harsh” because we don’t want these illegals living next door.

JERRY RIVERS, GETTING IT SO WRONG, SO OFTEN…

Geraldo

If I were to sit and ponder about whose opinion it is that I could not care less about, the one name that would almost immediately pop into my head would be none other than Jerry Rivers, aka Geraldo Rivera.  Rivers is one of the members of Fox News’ own modern day version of ‘The Three Stooges’, with the other two members being Juan Williams, and Bob Beckel.  And together the three of them have never come up with anything that even remotely can be said to have ever made a lick of sense.  And yet there they are, night after night, week after week spewing to those who tune in that which is nothing more the purest of the pure left wing bullshit.

Jerry’s most recent trip off into the nether-region of left wing lunacy, a place where commonsense doesn’t exist, involves his calling out the House Freedom Caucus (HFC) for going against Speaker of the House Paul ‘RINO’ Ryan and President Donald Trump’s supposed attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare.  It was earlier this week that Jerry appeared on Fox News’s “O’Reilly Factor” where he attempted to explain how he believes the House Freedom Caucus formed a coup.  He argued that the failure of the American Health Care Act is not on Trump or Ryan’s shoulders, but is solely on the HFC.  At least that’s how Jerry prefers to see it.

Jerry said, “The health care, I don’t blame President Trump and I don’t blame Speaker Ryan for the failure of the health care bill.”  And he then continued his rant by saying, “What you have there was the knife being in the back, the treason, the treachery of the Freedom Caucus, what is the freedom caucus, 40 or so congress people.”  Spoken like the devoted left wing kook that he is.  I would love to have the opportunity sometime to ask Jerry, as well as his two fellow members of ‘The Stooges’, if he actually believes any of the shit that comes out of his mouth.  Because I gotta tell ya, rarely does he, or they, ever make much sense.

The HFC, led by Chairman Mark Meadows, proved themselves to be a formidable road block for the Republican leadership that was working very hard to shove through something they were trying to sell as a repeal of Obamacare, but what was in reality, nothing of the sort.  Leading up to the vote, Meadows was outspoken in his opposition to both the bill itself and the manner in which the leadership handled its roll out.  He said, “Our leadership is going to put forth a bill that does not address any of the concerns in a meaningful way and will dare us to vote against it.”  So was that treasonous?  No I think not, despite Jerry’s imbecilic claim.

Trump and Ryan decided to pull the AHCA just hours before it was scheduled to go up for a vote on the House floor last Friday afternoon. The HFC was able to convince conservatives into standing united against the bill, and that proved, along with unanimous opposition from House Democrats, to be enough to kill the seriously flawed legislation.  And let’s face it, polling data showed that only 17 percent of the American people were in favor of what was referred to by many as being nothing more than Obamacare 2.0.  That by itself should have been enough to prove that this thing was a nonstarter.  Again, treasonous?  Hardly!

And I would like to take the opportunity here to remind President Trump, the guy I voted for, of what I see as being a few very important facts.  First and foremost would be the fact that while ‘RINO’ Ryan was spitting on his candidacy, it was the members of the ‘Freedom Caucus’ who were solidly behind Mr. Trump.  And when Jerry was lying about Trump, in his support of Hitlery, the ‘Freedom Caucus’ was behind Trump.  And when the RINOs cursed Trump name and supported first Jeb and that ‘Crazy John’ Kasich, the ‘Freedom Caucus’ was there for him as well.  And now he makes threats directed at members of the ‘Freedom Caucus’?

In January 2016 RINO Ryan vowed to advance the repealing of Obamacare knowing full well that Barry would most assuredly veto it.  Now fast-forward fifteen months, Barry is no longer president and repealing Obamacare is no longer an empty gesture.  But now that that repeal actually means something, and is something that you would think is a real possibility no congressmen outside of HFC seems to be the least bit interested in keeping his or her promise.  So once again it’s despite Jerry accusations of treason and that some sort of coup was perpetrated here, it’s obvious who the real traitors are and it isn’t those who are the ‘Freedom Caucus!’

And why do you suppose Jerry feels so compelled to venture outside his own little circle of left wing lunacy to start meddling in the Republican Party!  Does he actually think we care what he might have to say?  And while I remain a supporter of President Trump, I do think his tweet about fighting the ‘Freedom Caucus’ in 2018 was more than just a bit out of line since Ryan’s bill did suck, and who really needs that.  Instead, pass the one sentence bill that has been submitted to repeal all of Obamacare no later than 12/31/2017!!  Too simple for Ryan to handle, he always has to have the deep thought bills that NEVER pass!!

Jerry asks, “What is the ‘Freedom Caucus’ but 40 or so Congress people?”  Well, it’s these 40 or so people who are the only ones left who aren’t bought and paid for by the special interests. These 40 or so people are the anti-swamp.  These 40 or so people are the ones who actually fight for the Constitution and all those people who voted for President Trump.  Trump is under the impression that those who voted for him voted for HIM.  No, we voted for him because he said he was going to fight for the American people.  This isn’t about loyalty to President Trump.  It’s about his loyalty to us and to the nation our Founders created.

And why is it that Jerry simply can’t bring himself to fade away?  As far as the position of the HFC on Obamacare is concerned, they do have a point.  RINO Ryan was pushing a bill that would make health care even worse than it is now.  There should have been more debate and more negotiation.  A mere 18 days is not enough for any bill.  Also, the Republicans should have had a specific bill already hashed out a long time ago.  But people still need to be given time to read and analyze it or else we end up with another Obamacare, only worse.  It is a mistake to pick a fight with the Freedom Caucus. How about fighting the Establishment RINOs?

The disgustingly leftwing Jerry demonstrates his ignorance in this mindless attack on the Freedom Caucus.  Jerry enthusiastically supported Ryancare because he knew that, if passed, it would continue government control of one-sixth of our nation’s economy.  He knew that Ryancare was simply Obamacare Lite.  Maybe he ought to check out what constitutes “treason” under the Constitution.  Jerry is a left wing blow hard who is pro open borders, pro amnesty and pro path to citizenship for the over 11 million immigrants in this country illegally.  Why Fox News continues to pay him, as well as his fellow stooges, is a complete mystery.

Jerry is once again discussing issues that are so completely over his head.  He says opposition to an incredibly flawed bill, a bill viewed as such by most Americans, a majority of Republicans in the Senate and almost all pundits, analysts, and experts was an act of treason.  If it hadn’t been for the Freedom Caucus we would have had a quick patchwork fix pasted over Obamacare rather than an actual viable solution.  And don’t give me, “well, phase 2 and 3.”  There would never have been other phases, PERIOD!!  Everyone would have stood around in a circle looking like a deer in the headlights saying, “Well, we did the best we could.”  NO, no you didn’t!

How is it that Jerry can be so wrong, so often?  Other than his other two left wing compatriots there at Fox News, Williams and Beckel, rarely will you find anyone who gets it wrong as often as Jerry.  If treason, in a sense, was committed it was done so by Ryan and his establishment cohorts.  They make the claim that the AHCA bill was passed by two House committees but they conveniently fail to mention the fact that no amendments to the bill were allowed by committee members, it was only RINO Ryan who could add amendments.  So don’t blame the HFC, blame RINO Ryan and his sad attempt to ram through a bill that did nothing to repeal or replace Obamacare!

JERRY RIVERS, AKA GERALDO RIVERA, FOX NEWS’ ‘COURT JESTER’…

geraldo-1

Well I’m quite sure that President Trump was very much relieved to hear that old Jerry Rivers, aka Geraldo Rivera, has now finally withdrawn his opposition to the building of a wall along our southern border.  It was Wednesday during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” that Rivers made the announcement that he was officially withdrawing his opposition to a border wall.  Rivers, who has had more than a few heated dust-ups on O’Reilly’s show during the past decade, or so, especially on the issue of immigration, acknowledged that elections have consequences, therefore he doesn’t oppose the wall, despite thinking it would be a waste of money.  Rivers said, “I’m going to shock you. I am withdrawing my opposition to the wall.”  And then proceeded to say, “No, listen, elections have consequences. This was his signature issue, and if the people want the wall, which I think is a waste of money.”

“Geraldo is down with the wall now,” O’Reilly replied. “And you know, I think you should have a piece full wall … sponsored by Geraldo. You could have your picture there.”  And it was in making it clear that he is far from an enthusiastic supporter of the wall, Jerry was quick to throw in his little disclaimer saying, “You’re going to have a $25-billion wall and a $25 ladder and the ladder will triumph.”  Any time I happen to be watching Fox News, which is nowhere near as often as it used to be, and someone sees fit to trot out Rivers for his take on whatever issue it is that’s being discussed, I either hit the ‘mute button’ until he’s through talking, or the ‘last channel’ button and wait five minutes before hitting it again.  And it’s not so much that I disagree with him, which I typically do, it’s just that he’s such an egomaniac and blowhard.  He rarely if ever makes any sense, and does little more than to spew the talking points of his leftist buddies.

These days the only shows I find worth watching on Fox are Hannity, although his ego does get in the way at times, and Tucker Carlson’s new show.  Nothing else is really worth my time.  These days I’m not sure who it is that I find the most annoying on the network: Old Jerry Rivers, Juan Williams or, the newly returned, Bob Beckel.  And since I can’t determine who bothers me the most, I don’t watch any of them.  And can anyone ever remember when Jerry was ever taken seriously?  And yet he’s a constant ‘contributor’ on Fox.  Whenever I see him the first words that come to mind are smarmy, sanctimonious, extremely creepy, hopelessly dumb, and unwatchable.  But enough about his good qualities.  No one cares about Jerry and the truth is he was against Trump from the start.  Therefore his position on any issue, be it the wall, immigration in general, abortion or anything else, should matter very little to any reasonably intelligent person.

JERRY RIVERS, AKA GERALDO RIVERA, MORON ‘AT-LARGE’…

Jerry Rivers 1

Can somebody please explain to me what purpose there may be in continuing to provide Jerry Rivers, aka Geraldo Rivera, with a platform from which he can continue to spew his unique brand of social idiocy?  I mean, he very rarely makes any sense and, much like Juan Williams, can come up with some of the most bizarre arguments in attempting to justify his support for either Barry “Almighty” or even, more recently, Hitlery Clinton.  The man has absolutely no credibility regardless of the topic being discussed at any given time.

His most recent idiotic outburst came while appearing on the Fox News Channel’s ‘Outnumbered’, when the race-obsessed Rivers, who inexplicably remains a network fixture, put forth his rather predictable explanation for Barry’s failure to unite the country on issues like race, guns and terrorism.  Jerry’s explanation?  That Americans simply weren’t ready for a black president.  Actually, if we’re being honest, what America wasn’t quite ready for then, but seems to be far more accepting of today, is a president who is a devoted Socialist.

It was to his female co-hosts there on ‘Outnumbered’ that Jerry said, “I think, and this is just strictly my Constitutionally protected opinion—I know you’ll get mad at me but I think this—I think what is clear is that the nation was not ready for a black president. And I think the gross divisions we suffer right now in this country are, when you strip away everything else, the gun rights, terror and all the rest of it—what you have essentially is a nation divided between white people and everybody else in broad strokes.”  And, I suppose, the fault can be said to lie with whites?

Jerry then went on to say, “When you look at the groups that overwhelmingly favor the Democrats right now, the Asians, the Hispanics, the African-Americans, the Muslims, you see a nation where people have largely chosen up sides and if you strip away everything else, what you are going to find is a racial divide. It is the biggest, unaddressed issue. I think it is why we can’t deal with urban crime. It’s why we are dysfunctional in terms of the ability to be bilateral, bicameral, bipartisan.”  This is the gibberish Jerry tries to pass of as a valid argument!

Co-host Harris Faulkner, who, I might add is black, expressed the exasperation of everyone else on camera when she retorted, “Geraldo, it can’t just be about color.”  But with Jerry and progressives, everything is always about color. He did concede that Barry failed at healing the racial divide, but only through “benign neglect.”  Benign neglect?  Barry actively and intentionally exacerbated the racial divide in this country because he just so happens to be the “most racial” President, not the “post-racial” President he was lauded as being.

Look, while this racial divide to which Jerry refers does exist, I would like to ask Jerry how he thinks it came to be.  Now I’m quite sure Jerry blames the right, however, the reason it exists is because of the very simply reason that Barry, and the Democrat Party as a whole, see it as making it easier for them to solidify their political power.  And something that Jerry very obviously doesn’t care to admit is the fact that it’s the Democrat Party that is constantly trying to come up with new ways to intensify that racial divide and to incite racial hatred in this country.
