Broadcast networks’ impeachment viewership falls short of soap operas

Only the demorat media and TDS-infected libtards are watching.

From Fox News: Perhaps the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump is not dramatic enough because ratings on the broadcast networks failed to exceed the average ratings of daytime soap operas, according to a new study.

ABC, NBC and CBS dedicated its daytime programming this week to the newly launched impeachment trial, which meant that popular soaps like “General Hospital” and “Days of Our Lives” were shelved. However, a study from NewsBusters suggests the broadcast networks would have been better off airing its normally scheduled programming.

According to cited Nielsen data, CBS averaged 1.52 million viewers on Wednesday, which was Day One of the opening arguments made by the House managers, while ABC averaged 1.29 million viewers and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.

The daytimes soaps easily overshadowed the impeachment ratings. According to NewsBusters, CBS’s “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and “The Bold & The Beautiful” averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s “General Hospital” averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” averages 1.95 million viewers.

The comparisons are even more drastic on Thursday as broadcast ratings dipped on the second day of opening arguments. CBS averaged 1.4 million viewers while ABC had 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

MASSIVE anti-Trump rally in D.C.!

Yesterday, @MrJones_tm tweeted this pic of a MASSIVE rally before the Capitol building (Congress) in Washington, DC, demanding that President Trump and Vice President Pence be removed.

Wow!

I’m shaking in my boots at the MASSIVE turnout!

In contrast, this was the turnout at the Second Amendment gun-rights rally at the state capitol in Richmond, VA, on Monday:

Curiously, the anti-Trump protestors seemed to be wearing masks.

Here are some hilarious tweets in response:

HUGE turnout!! I don’t know if I can sleep tonight….

wow, I can’t count them all.

Building momentum towards 2020 #BlueWave.

Adam Schiff’s staff taking a lunch break?

Boy that is as big as the Biden rallies

Hope they had extra crowd control.

We get more ppl than that in taco truck lines here in TX! LOL!

I wonder if the D.C. Metro had to run extra trains for this

It obviously wasn’t funded by Soros.

I’m surprised msm isnt saying over 1 million in attendance

I wonder if they can get a tight enough shot to make it look like a large crowd.

And they’ll still manage to leave more trash behind than the #2A patriots in VA did.

Taylor Swift “terrified” of becoming like the Dixie Chicks

From Yahoo: Taylor Swift’s reputation has been a topic of conversation since her 2017 album titled just that. But the massively famous singer-songwriter had only started altering her influence in the fall of 2018 when she spoke out about her political beliefs for the first time, despite fearing that it would tarnish her career.

The 30-year-old spoke to Variety about her decision to publicly endorse Democrat Phil Bredesen in Tennessee’s Senate race during the 2018 midterm election, plunging her into the political conversation and leaving her vulnerable to a divisive fan base. And although there were various outcomes considered before Swift posted to social media, the one that made her most fearful was the example set by the Dixie Chicks.

“I saw how one comment ended such a powerful reign, and it terrified me,” Swift told the magazine about Natalie Maines’s 2003 comments against then-President George W. Bush —which forced the top-selling female group into exile.

“These days, with social media, people can be so mad about something one day and then forget what they were mad about a couple weeks later. That’s fake outrage. But what happened to the Dixie Chicks was real outrage. I registered it — that you’re always one comment away from being done being able to make music.

President Trump was correct: Emergency supplies in Puerto Rico went unused

After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, progressives and the media blamed President Trump for the lack of relief supplies.

When President Trump called out Puerto Rico’s ‘incompetent or corrupt’ politicians, the media lost their minds. He claimed Puerto Rico had mismanaged disaster aid funds. No one in the media dared travel to Puerto Rico to do an investigation. Such brave fire fighters…

President Trump was correct. A headline yesterday from USA Today: “Warehouse of emergency supplies went unused in Puerto Rico after Maria. Now 2 officials are fired.”

The USA Today story goes on to describe how three officials have been fired as a result of their incompetence. Read the whole story here.

More proof that you can NEVER trust our media and their #fakenews.

Women’s March focuses on “lifting each other up”

The fourth year of the perpetual temper tantrum…

From SF Gate: Cheering, clapping and waving signs ranging from the profound to the profane, protesters from all over the Bay Area rallied in San Francisco and around the United States for the fourth annual Women’s March on Saturday.

“Today is about lifting each other up,” said San Francisco Mayor London Breed, the city’s first female African American mayor, who swept onstage to roars of approval from the audience.

Hundreds showed up in New York City and thousands in Washington, D.C., for the rallies, which aim to harness the political power of women, although crowds were noticeably smaller than in previous years. Marches were scheduled Saturday in more than 180 cities.

The first marches in 2017 drew hundreds of thousands of people to rallies in cities across the country on the day after President Donald Trump was inaugurated. That year’s D.C. march drew close to 1 million people.

The marches began nationwide in January 2017, sparked by the election of President Donald Trump. About 100,000 people attended in San Francisco that year. Subsequent years have seen smaller crowds locally and nationally. No crowd estimate was available at press time for this year’s event.

“Our reproductive health is under attack” by the current administration, as well as transgender rights and other civil liberties, Breed said. The marches focus on a broad spectrum of issues including immigration, pay equity and racial equality.

29 criminal aliens released by Franklin County Sheriff’s Office in recent weeks

Press release from ICE dated 1/16/20:

“COLUMBUS — The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office has released 29 criminal aliens and immigration violators since November 2019, despite written detainer requests filed with them by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“When dangerous criminal aliens are released into the community, public safety is needlessly put at risk because of the individual’s propensity to re-offend,” said Rebecca Adducci, field office director for ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) in Michigan and Ohio. “ICE remains committed to arresting and removing criminal aliens in the interest of public safety and national security, despite local decisions to not honor detainers and jeopardize the safety of its citizens.”

ICE recently apprehended the following criminal alien after his release from the Franklin County Sherriff’s Office with an active detainer in place:

• Hajir Muhammud, a 59-year old national of Somalia, was arrested by local authorities Dec. 27, for failure to register as a Tier 1 sex offender. He is a convicted sex offender for crimes involving children. ICE lodged a detainer following his arrest. He was subsequently released after Franklin County declined to honor the ICE detainer. On Jan. 6, ICE arrested Muhammud, and he is currently in custody pending removal proceedings.

However, several criminal aliens released by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office are currently at-large. Efforts by ICE to apprehend these men are currently underway. They include:

• Edgar Moreno-Soto, a 25-year-old Mexican national, was arrested Nov. 6, for felony firearm charges, drugs, among other charges. ICE lodged a detainer after his arrest. He was subsequently released after Franklin County declined to honor the ICE detainer. His current location is unknown.
• Manuel Vazquez-Sanchez, a 25-year-old Mexican national, was arrested Nov. 8, for domestic violence, assault, falsification and menacing. He has been removed from the U.S. twice since 2018 ICE lodged a detainer after his arrest. He was subsequently released after Franklin County declined to honor the ICE detainer. His current location is unknown.
• Arturo Maya-Sanchez, a 28-year-old Mexican national, was arrested Nov. 9, for domestic violence, DUI and domestic violence. He has been removed from the U.S. twice since 2018. ICE lodged a detainer after his arrest. He was subsequently released after Franklin County declined to honor the ICE detainer. His current location is unknown.
• Marvin Fabricio Herdnandez-Chicas, a 24-year-old Salvadoran national, was arrested Nov. 3, for domestic violence and assault. ICE lodged a detainer after his arrest. He was subsequently released after Franklin County declined to honor the ICE detainer. His current location is unknown.
• Martin Antonio Paredes-Zamorano, aka Wilfred Vega, a 31-year-old Mexican national, was arrested Dec. 15, for DUI and having a loaded firearm in his vehicle. He was previously removed from the U.S. in 2014. ICE lodged a detainer following his arrest. He was subsequently released after Franklin County declined to honor the ICE detainer. His current location is unknown.

If you have any information on the above at-large individuals, please call the ICE tip line at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE (866-347-2423).”

Savage: President Trump’s admin rolls back Michelle Obama’s school lunch program – on her birthday!

I remember when this program was rolled out. The kids HATED it and A LOT of food went to waste.

Happy Birthday Moochelle!

From Daily Mail: Donald Trump’s administration proposed new school lunch guidelines Friday that would undo several changes made by Michelle Obama to get more fruit and veggies on the menu: a move that comes on the former first lady’s birthday.

The Department of Agriculture, which oversees the Food and Nutrition Service, said it is proposing new rules ‘to simplify meal service and reduce food waste.’ That would include ‘increasing flexibility in the “vegetable subgroups” requirements for school lunches.’

But the changes would allow schools to cut the amount of vegetables and fruits required at lunch and breakfasts while giving them the ability to offer more pizza, burgers and fries instead.

It would also undo rules championed by Michelle Obama as part of her Let’s Move initiative and The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010.

Friday is the former first lady’s 56th birthday.

Michelle Obama made healthy eating a signature issue during her time in the White House. ‘I am determined to work with folks across this country to change the way a generation of kids thinks about food and nutrition,’ she said.

Trump, however, is known for his love of fast food. He often ate McDonalds or Kentucky Fried Chicken on the campaign trail. One of his favorite meals is a hamburger with a side salad consisting of an edge of iceberg lettuce covered in blue cheese. Apple pie with ice cream is his favorite dessert.

Consumer groups slammed the proposed school meal changes. (#OrangeManBad!)

‘The proposed rule would allow anything that might be allowable as an entrée on any one school day to be served as an a la carte item every single day. In practice, if finalized, this would create a huge loophole in school nutrition guidelines, paving the way for children to choose pizza, burgers, French fries, and other foods high in calories, saturated fat or sodium in place of balanced school meals every day,’ Center for Science in the Public Interest Deputy Director of Legislative Affairs Colin Schwartz said in a statement.

Neither Canadians nor Americans want Meghan Markle & Prince Harry

On January 8, 2020, after British taxpayers had spent $41.9 million (£32 million) on their wedding less than two years ago in May 2018, and $3 million on refurbishing their residence Frogmore Cottage, eco-hypocrites Prince Harry, 35, and his D-list Hollywood-actress wife Meghan Markle, 38, sparked a crisis in the British monarchy by announcing (on Instagram!) they want to reduce their royal duties (whatever that means) and spend more time in North America, while becoming “financially independent”.

The Toxic Duo made the announcement without consulting with or even notifying Harry’s 93-year-old grandmother, the Queen.

By “financially independent” is meant their intention to milk their royal titles for commercial purpose. Already, they’ve registered the domain name SussexRoyal.com and filed for a trademark for “Sussex Royal” on a dizzying range of items including clothing and newspapers. At the same time, while “reducing their royal duties,” the Toxic Duo have every intention of keeping all the royal perquisites they’ve enjoyed, including their royal titles (HRH, Duke and Duchess of Sussex) and £multimillions in “subsidies” and security protection.

Update (Jan. 18, 2020):Harry & Meghan Markle lose in duel with the Queen

A day after they made the announcement, news came that Meghan already had left the UK back to the $14.1 million waterfront luxury mansion near Victoria, BC, Canada, reportedly owned by a mysterious Russian oligarch. The Toxic Duo and their elusive infant son Archie had spent 7 weeks in the mansion during a Christmas-New Year “break” from the oh-so-demanding royal duties of showing up at charity functions to smile and shake the hands of the plebians — British taxpayers.

Waterfront mansion near Victoria, BC, Canada

“Woke” Meghan had made known, through her pals, that her eventual destination is Los Angeles, but not as long as Donald Trump is President, whom pro-Hillary Meghan had called “syphilis”. (See “Harry and Meghan don’t want to live in LA until Trump leaves office”)

But neither Canadians nor Americans want the Toxic Duo.

James Wood reports for the Daily Mail, January 16, 2020, that although Canada’s prime minister Justin “blackface” Trudeau grandly declared that Canada would pay for Harry, Meghan and their son Archie’s protection while they are in Canada, a new poll found that nearly three quarters of Canadians do not want to pay for the couple’s move to Canada or to pay for their security arrangements. 

On their website Sussexroyal.com, Harry and Meghan had grandiosely declared they were “internationally protected people” entitled to bodyguards wherever they go. But the phrase was deleted hours later after Dai Davies, a former chief superintendent who led the London Metropolitan Police’s royalty protection unit, said there is no such thing as “internationally protected people.” Davis said: “Their naivety beggars belief. I have never heard of the phrase ‘internationally protected people’. As far as I can see there is no such thing when you are no longer performing royal duties.”

Estimates of the security cost range from half of £1million ($1.3million) a year — a figure based on the cost of Harry and Meghan’s current UK security bill — to $10 million (£7.6million) annually. Chris Matthews, formerly of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who worked in the protection of the Royal Family to Canada, told The Globe and Mail that security would be more costly as they would have to set it up from scratch. The couple’s residence would also need to have fences installed, alongside CCTV and alarms, all of which adds to the cost of their security. Matthews said: “They need personal body guards all the time. You have to pay those peoples’ salaries. You’ve got to pay for the vehicles they travel in and the aircraft they travel in. You have to pay for the communications equipment they require because it has to be sophisticated so that you can’t listen to it.”

The poll of a randomized sample of 1,154 Canadian adults for the non-profit Angus Reid Institute was conducted from January 13-14 this year. Among the findings are:

  • Just 14% of Canadians said they would be “very pleased” to see the couple spend a significant time in Canada; 50% said they did not care either way. 
  • More than 7-in 10 (73%) Canadians said they would prefer Canada not pitch in any money for the couple; 1-in-5 (19%) said some cost sharing is appropriate; only 3% of Canadians are willing to pay for all costs.
  • Two-thirds (66%) said the British monarchy is losing or has lost relevance; 41% said they feel the monarchy is completely irrelevant.
  • Nearly half (45%) said Canada should not continue as a constitutional monarchy for generations and generations to come, but there is little consensus over what, if anything, might replace the monarch as Canada’s head of state.

On January 15 in a scathing editorial, Canada’s most influential newspaper The Globe and Mail urged the Trudeau government to say “no” to Harry and Meghan’s plan to move to Canada while remaining part of the Royal Family because that would break an “unspoken constitutional taboo.” The editorial says: “Canada is not a halfway house for anyone looking to get out of Britain while remaining a royal. You are welcome to visit, but so long as you are senior royals, Canada cannot allow you to come to stay.”

Meanwhile, a poll by Spectator USA found that 85.3% of Americans say they would vote for Trump in order to keep Meghan and Harry out of the United States. LOL
