Fredericks, who declared bankruptcy in 2011 in the wake of the financial crisis and lost his family’s home, vowed to make the radio job work. And he turned his hosting gig at a single station into a regionally syndicated radio network run out of Richmond.
Partly fueled by his bankruptcy and distaste for moneyed elites, Fredericks is a true believer in the Trump agenda and arrived at his studio on a recent morning to deliver the news, deliver himself from career disaster and deliver the country into the hands of four more years of Donald Trump.
Far from the White House and Capitol Hill, Fredericks is one of hundreds of regional radio hosts across the country who have found themselves in the improbable position of being showered with attention by Trump officials and surrogates. While granting access to local media has long been an important element of running a national political campaign, Trump officials have made it a central part of their strategy.
Fredericks says he has interviewed Trump 12 to 15 times and has hosted the president’s son Eric and Eric’s wife, Lara, on his radio show. “Through the campaign, every time he would do my show, he’d win a primary,” said Fredericks, sitting in his office. “So then he got superstitious and he’s like, ‘I gotta do John’s show. . . . Every time we do your show, something great happens. I got to keep doing it.’ ”
Fredericks has interviewed Vice President Pence; former Trump advisers Corey Lewandowski, Sean Spicer, David Bossie and Jason Miller; and White House officials Kellyanne Conway, Stephanie Grisham and Hogan Gidley, some of them multiple times. (It was on Fredericks’s show that Grisham, Trump’s press secretary, made her disputed claim that President Barack Obama’s staff left nasty notes for the incoming Trump team.)
Pouring attention on regional talk-radio hosts is a classic Trumpworld move: giving relatively unknown characters proximity to the White House has paid off with a disproportionate amount of attention and praise lavished on the president and his agenda.
On a recent January morning, Fredericks, 61, walked out of the dark morning into the fluorescent lights of the studio lobby, past a lonely banner featuring his airbrushed image and slogan, “Trucking the Truth.”
Fredericks loves his job. His only complaint is that his early wake-up, at 3:30 a.m. to prepare, grants him so little sleep that he has put on 30 pounds in recent years. But his girth has also granted him a self-assigned nickname, “the Godzilla of Truth,” which he points out daily to listeners of his morning drive-time radio show.
“For a show that goes on at 6 a.m., you can’t possibly prepare the night before,” he said. “It’s a disruptive presidency, and there’s so much happening. There are so many internal battles and everyone fighting with everyone else. It was different in the Obama presidency.”
Not that Fredericks misses those days. On his website, he displays a testimonial from Trump and has given airtime over to Stephen K. Bannon, the former Trump White House adviser.
“They are so disrespected by the political apparatus in Washington that if you show them any outreach at all, they will move heaven and earth to give you accommodation, to give you time to really let you tell your story,” Bannon said in an interview in his Capitol Hill townhouse shortly after he finished taping his War Room podcast, which got its start on Fredericks’s radio network. “Not only will they have you on, they’ll play the clip all day long and they’ll talk about it for days. . . . The amazing thing is this platform’s out there. It gets massive listenership . . . and nobody pays attention to it.”
The strategy has been particularly powerful as Trump and his team have engaged in what Bannon calls “information warfare” over the impeachment fight and the 2020 election, focusing on individual Democratic congressional representatives across the country whose seats are in districts that Trump won in 2016. Regional hosts can hammer on an individual issue or politician far more regularly than national radio behemoths, such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
Fredericks takes his place in Trump’s strategy seriously, too. Even though the medium would allow for something more casual, Fredericks wears a suit every day to work. “It’s a mind-set,” he explains. He leans his head forward over his laptop, his hair thinned on the top of his head to the point of disappearance. He stares over his glasses into his laptop, grasps the edge of the table and starts the day.
Listening to talk-radio hosts across the country highlights just how much some of them sound like Trump — or how much Trump sounds like them. Fredericks regularly grants politicians and others Trumpian nicknames. He calls Richmond “Richvegas” to show his support for a bill that would bring more casinos to Virginia, and dubbed former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, for whom Fredericks says he voted in 2013, “Terry McGenius.” Fredericks is a longtime Republican but said he supported McAuliffe because he brought jobs to Virginia and expanded Medicaid in the state.
Unlike Trump, Fredericks’s nicknames are typically positive. “These are people I have a relationship with,” he said.
On Wednesday morning, Fredericks hosted former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. After bemoaning Lewandowski’s decision not to run for a Senate seat in New Hampshire, Fredericks quickly turned to impeachment. Lewandowski dismissed the “sham” impeachment trial that had just kicked off in the Senate, and Fredericks chimed in that the Democrats “went around for three weeks saying they had overwhelming evidence, and then they get to the Senate [and] they say, ‘we need more witnesses.’ How does that work?” The two men talked about how much all of this was going to help reelect Donald Trump.
“I think he’s going to win New Hampshire, Minnesota, Nevada, I think he’ll win them all,” Fredericks concluded.
Brian Rosenwald, an instructor at the University of Pennsylvania and the author of the book “Talk Radio America: How an Industry Took Over a Political Party That Took Over the United States” argues that talk-radio hosts paved the way for a Trump candidacy.
“This is the talk-radio presidency,” he said. It began as far back as 1988, when Rush Limbaugh’s show first became nationally syndicated. “What Limbaugh started was a call for a fighter, which was great for radio. And others mimicked that language and message,” Rosenwald said.
As much as Limbaugh created the model that hosts around the country emulate, local hosts can be more powerful in some cases, Rosenwald said. A local host can repeatedly bolster or attack a local politician, whereas a national host simply doesn’t have the time.
The power of those local radio hosts has been harnessed by big conservative donors who have helped fuel the rise of local radio networks such as Salem Radio Network, the BOTT Radio Network, and American Family Radio. Bannon’s impeachment podcast started when he asked Fredericks to grant him the last hour of Fredericks’s 6-to-10-a.m. show.
Once Bannon had a couple of dry runs with his co-hosts Miller, a former Trump campaign adviser, and Raheem Kassam, the former London editor of Breitbart and a former chief adviser to Nigel Farage’s UK Independence Party, Bannon took over Fredericks’s fourth hour and also expanded the show on Salem.
Fredericks is not part of a corporate radio network, but the rise of such groups has boosted many minor radio hosts. Salem started out as a small fundamentalist Christian operation run out of Southern California and has expanded aggressively in recent years, particularly in swing states. It supports nationally syndicated hosts such as Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt, and Joe Walsh in addition to a host of regional personalities largely unknown outside their areas. According to Salem, it now serves more than 2,000 radio stations across the country.
Conservative groups such as the secretive Council for National Policy, backed by billionaire conservative families such as the Kochs, the Mercers, and the family of Blackwater founder Erik Prince, whose sister is Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, have fueled that expansion, according to a new book by Anne Nelson, “Shadow Network: Media, Money, and the Secret Hub of the Radical Right.”
“These conservative networks have expanded even as local newspapers around the country have dwindled,” Nelson said in an interview. They have “gobbled up independent and local stations, boosted their signals, and made them into an unseen powerhouse in the middle of the country.”
Fredericks is “unabashedly” a Trump supporter, chaired the president’s campaign in Virginia and is on the Trump Advisory Committee for 2020. He has served as a Trump surrogate himself on cable news.
After Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador, and a collection of African nations as “shithole countries” in a closed-door meeting, Fredericks appeared on CNN host Don Lemon’s show to defend the president, saying the comments were not about race but rather the poor economies of the countries in question. Lemon noted that Trump’s “racist, xenophobic views are one of the most consistent opinions the president has.” Fredericks replied that “it’s not about race, as you like to make it because that’s easy and lazy, it’s about economics.” Lemon cut Fredericks’s mic and brought him back on the show only after he apologized.
“I’ve had multiple hit pieces on me,” Fredericks said later, “It’s a joke, because in my business, all they do is help me.”
But he does not predictably support Republicans, and reaches the “undecideds,” he said, who have been key to the Trump agenda.
“Working-class people, they’re not watching Fox News at 9 p.m. They’re putting their kids to bed. They’re getting ready for work. . . . These are the people that have dirt under their fingernails,” Fredericks said. “These are the people that work with their hands. This is the backbone of America. They’re not tweeting and they’re not on Fox and they don’t watch CNN. . . . So where do you reach them? You’ve got to go directly to them through regional talk radio.”
In addition to voting for McAuliffe and endorsing Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.) for reelection in 2014, Fredericks stood by Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, a Virginia Democrat, when he was accused last year of sexual assault by two women. Fredericks said Fairfax deserved due process, even as many other media figures and politicians were calling for his resignation.
On a recent morning in Richmond, Fredericks interviewed Fairfax and kicked off the conversation by reminding him that he was the only media figure who stood by him “when all that went down.” Fairfax agreed that Fredericks supported him but also noted that there were others.
Fairfax extolled the virtues of radio, which lives in the cars and ear buds of voters across the country, and which allows longer conversations than the typical television appearance. “John facilitates a meaningful conversation,” he said, but added that he doesn’t “condone some of the language” Fredericks employs on his show, such as referring to undocumented immigrants as “illegals.”
Fredericks is also a fan of Rep. Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (D-Va.) whom Fredericks says he “loves.” The two aligned over their rejection of the Patriot Act among other issues. Scott, facing less than average demand from constituents and friends, gave Fredericks tickets to attend Trump’s inauguration in Washington.
“We agree on some things and disagree on others,” Scott said. “He’s invited me on the show many times, and I’ve appeared. If you don’t talk to people who disagree with you, you’ll get nowhere.”
Fredericks’s approach to local Democrats in swing districts aligns with what Bannon has made a regular feature of his impeachment-focused podcast. “Make ’Em Famous,” is a segment spotlighting the freshman Democratic representatives who govern in districts that voted for Trump in 2016. Those figures can usually hide behind House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Bannon said, but he and others hope to call them out and bring a political cost to their support for impeaching Trump.
Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.), one of the newly elected congressional representatives in a district that backed Trump, has appeared as a guest on Fredericks’s show several times, and he praised her as a “tough and strong lady.” But since her vote for impeachment, Fredericks said on his show that Spanberger has “a multitude of issues.” (Spanberger’s office declined a request for an interview.)
Fredericks has also targeted Rep. Elaine Luria, whose district includes Fredericks’s hometown, Chesapeake. Luria has never appeared on his show and Fredericks appears to have a low opinion of her. “I wouldn’t know her if she jumped in my lap and called me ‘Daddy,’ ” he said, using the kind of language that is characteristic of his show. (Her spokesperson didn’t respond to an interview request.)
Largely because of their votes to impeach Trump, Fredericks has a prediction for both women that he seems eager to fulfill. “I think they’ll both lose their next elections,” he said.

Night of The Living Dead Meets Caucus of the Corn as Democrat Leftist Radicals Storm The Gates
Richmond, VA—By John Fredericks
The stakes in Virginia’s legislative election today are enormous.
If Democrats win both Houses, it’s likely to be a generational shift, rendering Virginia Republicans to a systemic minority. Regardless of campaign rhetoric, radical elements of the Virginia Democratic Party will likely scrap all efforts at bi-partisanship and redistrict Republicans into oblivion.
Will Virginia GOP’s Virginia Beach Firewall hold? It’s bending…
Virginia State Senate
Background: Democrats have won 15 statewide races in a row since 2009. That’s a decade.
Prediction: Democrats take control 21-19 – The Godfather Dick Saslaw becomes Majority Leader
District 10 – Powhatan, Part of Chesterfield and Richmond City
Ghazala Hashmi (D) over Glenn Sturtevant (R-incumbent)
This is the epitome of the silliest GOP campaign run this cycle. Does anyone have a clue what Sturtevant stands for? Or care? His television ice cream and soccer ball ads were laughable. We mocked them on our show on a daily basis. He abandoned his base on every key issue and ran clear away from President Trump.
#ShowMeTheMoney Hashmi was not much better, but no one cares about Gov. Northam and blackface anymore. What a pathetic choice. Hashmi wins because Sturtevant loses. This campaign–decrepit of ideas or ideology or substance is an empty shell.
District 13 – Part of Loudoun, and Prince William Counties
Delegate John Bell (D) over Geary Higgins (R)
Open seat, Dick Black (R) retiring
A month ago Bell was up by 20. It’s tightening.
My intel on the ground in Loudoun County is reporting that the Republican candidate in state senate district 13 Geary Higgins, is surging late against huge favorite Delegate John Bell (D).
The reason? Excruciating tolls on 1-66, which Bell championed.
Is Tip O’Neill right?
Bell was up big, but why did he spend $800,000 in the last week? And why did V.P. Joe Biden and former Gov. Terry McAuliffe go to campaign there on Saturday? And why did Higgins get $700,000 from Tommy Norment’s PAC and other Republican senators at the last minute?
For Dems it’s insurance. For GOP it’s a Hail Mary. Bell wins.
District 12 – Part of Henrico and Hanover
Siobhan Dunnavant (R-incumbent) over Debbie Rodman (D)
There is no truth to the rumor that I’m a hopeless Dunnavant groupie!
She’s delivered thousands of babies in her district.
Bye, Debbie. Nice to know you. You can live vicariously through infanticide Delegate Kathy Tran, dreaming of late third-term abortions…while Sen. Dunnavant keeps delivering babies. Stark choice.
District 7 – Virginia Beach
Jen Kiggans (R) over Cheryl Turpin (D)
This is an open seat previously held by GOP’s Frank Wagner, who took a job in the Northam Administration.
A Navy fighter pilot and mom running in Virginia Beach? Kiggans is a rock star, with unlimited Virginia political potential. Turpin is really liberal in a generally conservative pro-Trump district.
District 11 – Amelia, Colonial Heights, Part of Chesterfield
Amanda Chase (R-incumbent) over Amanda Pohl (D)
Oh, come on. Chase is running for Governor in 2025. Her base loves her, toting guns on her side belt and all! This is a big win for Chase, who overcomes some very serious missteps early in the campaign.
House of Delegates: Republicans hang on: 51-49
Polls close at 7:00 PM in Virginia. Republicans, hanging on to slim 51-49 majority, GOP will lose three seats off the bat, by 7:20 PM. Then the night becomes tense.
3 Democratic pick-ups:
District 94 — Shelly Simons (D) over David Yancey (R-incumbent)
No need for a coin toss.
District 91 – Martha Mugler (D) over Colleen Holcomb (R)
Open seat held by GOP flips. Republicans redistricted into oblivion
District 76 – Clint Jenkins (D) over Chris Jones (R-incumbent)
Jones got Hotel California steely-knived in a redistricting sham by the Irvine college professor. Back to the Pharmacy.
The field: competitive races – No Change
District 10 — Wendy Gooditis (D-incumbent) over Randy Minchew (R)
The rematch. Sorry Randy.
District 21 — Kelly Fowler (D-incumbent) over Shannon Kane (R)
Zzzzzzz. Wake me up when the race is over. Kane’s campaign was a snooze-fest.
District 27 – Roxanne Robinson (R-incumbent) over Larry Barnett (D)
Great lady. Class, smarts, guts. Wins.
District 28 –Paul Milde (R) over Joshua Cole (D)
Republican Paul Milde defeated incumbent Bob Thomas in a hotly contested primary. Milde squeeks by neophyte Democrat Joshua Cole.
Milde is a better candidate than meets the eye. Folks just plain like the guy. He’s also an unabashed Trump supporter, and a county supervisor.
District 30 – Nick Freitas (R-incumbent) as a write-in candidate over Anne Ridgeway (D)
Dear Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger: see above. Vote for impeachment, run against Nick. Lose to Nick. It’s the circle of life.
District 31—Elizabeth Guzman (D-incumbent) over D.J. Jordan (R)
A lot of hype – but you have to play the game. Two yards and a cloud of dust when your down by three touchdowns doesn’t win championships. Throw the ball.
District 40 – Tim Hugo (R-incumbent) over Dan Helmer (D)
Tim Hugo is the last Republican standing in Northern Virginia.
The Democrats threw the kitchen sink at him in 2017 and came up short.
Hugo has outworked every candidate in Virginia. If the Dem NOVA machine couldn’t beat him in ’17—they can’t beat him in ’19. Hugo hangs on by a thread–again! HUGOMANIA!
District 51 – Hala Ayala (D-incumbent) over Richard Anderson (R)
Another rematch gone south for the beleaguered NOVA GOP.
District 66 – Speaker Kirk Cox (R-incumbent) over Sheila Bynum-Coleman (D)
Kirk wins handily. Hard work, knocking on doors every weekend for 20 years (and coaching high school basketball) pays off. Cox is a beast.
He stays as Speaker and saves the Republican Party of Virginia.
District 68—Dawn Adams (D-incumbent) over Garrison Coward (R)
Adams is tough. Sorry Garrison, you ran against the Dems best candidate in Central Virginia.
District 72—Schuyler VanValkenburg (D-incumbent) over GayDonna Vandergriff (R)
Battle of the Dutch!
GayDonna’s campaign, once promising, is a train wreck.
District 75—Roz Tyler (D-incumbent) over H.Otto Wachsmann (R)
Oooh, Dems dodged a bullet here. Not in ’21. Enjoy it while you can, Roz. Maybe I should move there and run?
Nah, I’d rather be in Bannon’s basement.
District 83 – Chris Stolle (R-incumbent) over Nancy Guy (D)
Never bet against a Stolle in Virginia Beach. Ever. Stolle’s last attack ad on Guy was devastating. I laughed my tail off every time I watched it! Classic!
District 84—Glenn Davis (R-incumbent) over Karen Mallard (D)
Seriously, folks? This was never close. Glenn Davis is always underestimated by everybody. Except Godzilla of Truth.
District 100 – Rob Bloxom (R-incumbent) over Phillip Hernandez (D)
Happy Holidays to the Eastern Shore, With Love: The Bloxom Family
District 50: Ian Lovejoy (R) over #CommyLee Carter from the #CCCP (D)
Even Bernie Sanders can’t help the Communist Party of Virginia
District 73–Mary Margaret Kastelberg (R) over Rodney Willet (D)
This is an open seat, held by Debbie Rodman (D) who is running for state senate. MMK is a great candidate who has campaigned vigorously. Great future in GOP.
District 85—Rocky Holcomb (R) over Alex Askew (D)
Rocky comes back from nasty fake racist smears in 2017 and wins his seatback. See, Rocky there is a God.
UPSET SPECIAL! John Whitbeck wins Loudoun County Chairman of Supervisors, breaking Dem’s hold on the trending blue NOVA county.
Election Night Coverage Live Tonight 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM Listen Live!
D.C. Lib Media Hair on Fire Over Trump Snub-Job
The Five Myths of The Day for the Fake News Bunch #FNB
Richmond, VA— Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) summed it up on #JFRS yesterday: “President Trump has boxed Nancy Pelosi into a lose-lose corner on impeachment. If she holds a vote on a hearing, she either loses the vote now or loses the gavel in 2020. That’s why I predict there will be no vote.”
Griffith is on to something. Pelosi doesn’t want a legitimate process where Republicans have subpoena power and vulnerable freshman Democrats in her fractured caucus have to go on the record with a recorded vote.
Instead, we have her three-ring circus politically motivated sideshow where GOP ranking committee members have no ability to cross-examine, question or offer a rebuttal to witnesses.
As a result, the President is denied due process.
Let’s first set the record straight about House Democrats’ unprecedented contempt for due process rights, shall we?
MYTH #1: Due Process Applies Only During the Senate Trial
FACT: Due process applies to both the House inquiry and the Senate trial. When the House Judiciary Committee conducted impeachment investigations for the Clinton and Nixon impeachments, it approved procedures that protected the President’s due process rights.
MYTH #2 : The President Has No Right to Cross-Examine Witnesses in The House
FACT: The procedures approved by the Judiciary Committee for the Nixon and Clinton impeachments both explicitly state “[t]he President’s counsel may question any witness called before the Committee.” President Clinton’s attorney questioned Ken Starr when he appeared before the Judiciary Committee, and President Nixon’s attorney questioned each of the nine witnesses that appeared before the Judiciary Committee.
MYTH #3: The President Has No Right to Counsel in The House
FACT: The procedures approved by the Judiciary Committee for the Nixon and Clinton impeachments both explicitly state “The President and his counsel shall be invited to attend all hearings, including any held in executive session.” President Clinton’s attorneys were allowed to call and question 14 expert witnesses before the Judiciary Committee.
MYTH #4: The House Is the Grand Jury, So Due Process Is Unnecessary
FACT: Unlike impeachment inquiries, grand jury proceedings are secret. But impeachment inquiries are conducted in the open, and the investigating committee’s facts are reported at the end of the inquiry.
MYTH #5: Nothing Requires the House to Vote to Approve an Impeachment Inquiry
FACT: In every prior presidential impeachment inquiry in our history, the full House has voted to authorize the inquiry.
That is not a mere matter of custom, it is an essential step to delegate authority for a committee to act pursuant to the House’s impeachment authority—which cannot happen without a vote from the House.
Nothing in current House rules allows any committee to open an impeachment inquiry by itself.
Each committee can act only with the authorities delegated by the House, and under current House rules, no committee has been given jurisdiction over impeachment or the authority to investigate pursuant to the House’s impeachment authority under Article 1, section 2 of the Constitution.
But facts or rules don’t matter now.
The Democrats and their lying media acolytes have nothing to run on in 2020. So they have to move forward with impeachment and makeup stuff as they go along.
Case in point: CNN (Clown News Network) “declares a war on facts.”
Fake News CNN is falsely asserting that the White House letter to House Democrats on impeachment “declares war” on the Constitution.
Fact: The House Democrats’ impeachment sham is unfair, unprecedented, and constitutionally illegitimate with no full vote and no authority to move forward.
As the White House stated in their letter to Pelosi, this impeachment sham “lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation, any pretense of fairness, or even the most elementary due process protections.”
Trump snubbed their scam, and now CNN goes a rampage. Hilarious antics coming from the biggest liars and purveyors of fake news.
Pelosi’s Democrats are defying every longstanding precedent as to how constitutionally valid impeachment inquiries are conducted. How can one not look at this entire charade as overtly political?
Hold a Vote Nancy–What Are You Afraid Of?
If Pelosi holds a vote, and the House authorizes a legitimate Impeachment hearing, then let’s all have at it.
Until now, the House of Representatives has never attempted to launch an impeachment inquiry against a President without voting to authorize it.
Pelosi’s Democrats are refusing to respect even the most fundamental due process protections that every American is entitled to and are protected by the Constitution. In so doing, they’re trashing nearly 150 years of precedent.
Why are House Democrats trying to overturn the voice of the American people and undermine our democratic system?
It’s simple: power.
They can’t beat Trump in 2020–they know he’s going to win again–so they’re in a desperate witch hunt for something to tag him with Russia, recession, racism, tax returns, emoluments, Ukraine, whistleblowers, you name it.
In the meantime they get nothing done. No USMCA, no Surprise Medical Billing legislation, no prescription drug pricing plan. What are the Democrats going to take to the voters in 2020?
It’s become the witch hunt Party.
Why won’t Pelosi just call a vote on an impeachment hearing?
Because she’s from San Francisco, and she remembers the last scene of the movie Dirty Harry.
“Do you feel lucky today, Nancy?”
Richmond, VA—The Fake News Bunch #FNB operating out of Washington, D.C. could fool you into thinking the Redskins are really not 0-5 with a fired coach and miserable franchise leadership.
They’d make a case for impeaching the fan base. And so it goes with the lying fake news legacy media that is now peddling the Left’s phony impeachment scheme against President Trump.
Next will be the fake polls, coming out every day that will manufacture American support for Trump’s impeachment.
I’ve seen this act so many times in the swamp it’s downright boring.
Here’s an example of just a few of the falsehoods propagated this weekend by fake news peddlers:
FACTS VS FAKE NEWS FICTION
The one text message the media refuses to focus on explicitly shows there was never any quid pro quo.
EU AMBASSADOR GORDON SONDLAND: “Bill, I believe you are incorrect about President Trump’s intentions. The President has been crystal clear: no quid pro quo’s of any kind. The President is trying to evaluate whether Ukraine is truly going to adopt the transparency and reforms that President Zelensky promised during his campaign I suggest we stop the back and forth by text if you still have concerns I recommend you give Lisa Kenna or S a call to discuss them directly. Thanks.”
Now a second whistle-blower is bringing no new information regarding the already released call between Trump and the Ukrainian President.
President Trump did nothing wrong in his phone call with the Ukrainian President.
But why let facts stop a good old-fashioned Coup d’etat?
Similar to the case of Brett Kavanaugh, more and more accusers doesn’t mean any damning information.
Why not have an impeachment hearing vote in the House and get on with it?
Because it’s a political three-ring circus.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to bring the impeachment inquiry to the House floor for a vote is an attempt to silence Republicans in the House.
The vote would force Democrats to go on record as to whether they support impeaching President Trump or not.
If passed, it would give Republicans subpoena power. Hello Joe and Hunter Biden.
In every past attempt at impeachment, the inquiry has been brought to the floor for a vote. Why not now? Because it’s an attempt at political gamesmanship, to further undermine this duly elected President who is an eminent threat to the Washington status quo.
FAKE NEWS SILENT ON TRUMP’S TRADE DEAL WITH JAPAN
Today, President Trump signed a great trade agreement with Japan.
This unprecedented bi-lateral deal will lower or eliminate tariffs on over 90% of U.S. food and agriculture products imported into Japan.
All of this while China trade talks are set to resume this week.
This is another trade accomplishment for President Trump including USMCA, South Korea, and opening talks to better trade deals with the European Union.
Democrats choose to focus solely on impeachment instead of working together to pass the USMCA to help our farmers and boost the economy.

Truncated from The Washington Post report: “The story of a Virginia swing district town hall: From cheers to jeers”
John Fredericks, a conservative radio host, and Luria constituent who spoke at the small Stop the Madness protest on the sidewalk, called the event Luria’s “fairy tale town hall.”
He predicted the president will come to the district once or twice next year to rally the base.
“The only hope she has is she wins by attrition. If there’s a viable candidate, she loses,” he said.
After the town hall, Allen, the moderator, said enough Democrats are incensed by the “treasonous” actions of the president to deliver Luria a second term.

Trashing the Truth: The Fake News Trifecta Spins Another Doozy
Richmond, VA—The New York Times is bent on pushing another conspiracy theory and peddling it as “news” over nothing on President Trump’s call with the Australian Prime Minister.
I’m surprised it took them an entire day to concoct another Trump whopper.
Here’s the fake headline to whet your clickbait whistle:
NYT Times Lie Of The Day
The Times claims that “Mr. Trump’s discussion with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia shows the president using high-level diplomacy to advance his personal political interests.”
The President was simply connecting Department of Justice (DOJ) officials with Australian government officials at the request of U.S. Attorney General William Barr for the ongoing inquiry related to the 2016 election.
According to the Australians, no one was pressuring anyone for anything. They offered their support for the inquiry. Unfortunately for the fake-newsers at the Times, the Aussies documented their interactions.
A letter from May from Australian Ambassador Joe Hockey to Attorney General Barr confirms that Australia was willing to assist in the inquiry.
“The Australian Government will use its best endeavors to support your efforts in this matter.”
President Trump was merely providing introductions to help facilitate the inquiry at DOJ’s request.
Oh, the outrage of it all!
Inconvenient Facts are now the NYT Public Enemy:
DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE:
“At Attorney General Barr’s request, the President has contacted other countries to ask them to introduce the Attorney General and Mr. Durham to appropriate officials.”
WHITE HOUSE PRINCIPAL DEPUTY PRESS SECRETARY HOGAN GIDLEY STATEMENT:
“I’m old enough to remember when Democrats actually wanted to find out what happened in the 2016 election. The Democrats clearly don’t want the truth to come out anymore as it might hurt them politically, but this call relates to a DOJ inquiry publicly announced months ago to uncover exactly what happened. The DOJ simply requested that the President provide introductions to facilitate that ongoing inquiry, and he did so, that’s all.”
Fake News Peddlers Lies #2 and #3
The legacy lying faker media has attempted to stir controversy over news reports about where records of the President’s calls with foreign leaders are or are not stored.
CNN’S JAKE TAPPER: “We know now that the transcript of that call was put into this computer server. I mean, this looks really, really bad.”
NBC NEWS LEGAL ANALYST GLENN KIRSCHNER: “We now have learned that there are lots of calls and the summaries of these calls have been placed in a database or a server that was not designed to hold these kind of calls.”
The storage described in the news reports would not be unprecedented like the legacy media would have you believe – just ask the Obama White House.
Former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice acknowledged just last week they did so during the Obama Administration. For example:
MODERATOR: “How often did you guys move over conversations onto that kind of a server?”
FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR SUSAN RICE: “We never moved them over unless they were legitimate, in their contents classified.”
MODERATOR: “Can you say which ones you moved over?”
RICE: “Of course not.”
And The Alex Jones Award…
…goes to Nancy Pelosi who pushed a conspiracy theory right out of Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone that Russia is somehow involved in this issue.
Pelosi on MSNBC: “I think Russia has a hand in this, by the way.”
Just another day in the Fake News Media Fairyland.
