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.
President Trump, barring the unforeseen, will be the first American president to face voters after being charged with high crimes and misdemeanors.
John Fredericks, a radio host in Virginia, said the volume of calls into his morning show on Thursday was so inundating that he finally had to stop answering them.
“People are outraged because they know what is really going on is that Pelosi and the Democrats think that they know best,” Mr. Fredericks said. “Their message to us is, ‘You are really stupid people who go to Walmart and smell and can’t be trusted.’ It’s an insult.”
Still, Democrats are energized, too, and maybe more so if a Senate trial results in acquittal along party lines. Moreover, Mr. Trump’s backlash strategy did not work as well as he had hoped during last year’s midterm elections when he tried to convert conservatives’ anger over what they considered unfair sexual misconduct allegations against Brett M. Kavanaugh, the president’s Supreme Court nominee, into turnout at the polls.
Arguably, the passion generated by the Kavanaugh hearings helped Republicans in select Senate races, but Democrats went on to capture the House.
John Whitbeck, the Republican Party chairman in Virginia, where Democrats captured the state legislature last month, said that impeachment helped Republicans see the stakes of the 2020 election more clearly. But the longer-term political trends, he warned, suggested the party could still fall short.

Motivating the left side of the aisle is that, for several weeks, failure to pass bills while pressing full-court on the president’s impeachment has made Democrats in Trump-leaning districts vulnerable to criticism that they are privileging their party’s disdain for the president over legislative action.
November saw swing-state House Democrats Elissa Slotkin of Michigan, Mikie Sherrill, Josh Gottheimer and Andy Kim of New Jersey, Xochitl Torres of New Mexico, Rep. Ben McAdams of Utah, Joe Cunningham of South Carolina, Anthony Brindisi and Max Rose of New York, Cynthia Axne of Iowa, and Elaine Luria of Virginia in the crossfire of attack ads. And at the encouragement of Trump surrogates on the Virginia-based John Fredericks Radio Network, voters have confronted them on their impeachment stance by voters during Thanksgiving town halls.
Still, in the current heated climate, acknowledging a willingness to cooperate does not come easy. House Democrats have all but ignored USMCA publicly, according to an analysis conducted by a Republican congressional office that counted 468 remarks by Democratic lawmakers on the agreement, compared to 5,123 by Republicans, between January and December 2019. The deal is one of Trump’s signature campaign promises.

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump‘s personal attorney, said Monday that he expects to complete a report this week detailing his findings from his recent travels to Ukraine to counter the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.
“I was going to do an outline of it and try to present it at the convenience of the Republicans in Congress and the attorney general at the end of this week,” Giuliani told “War Room: Impeachment,” a radio show hosted by former Trump adviser Stephen Bannon.
Giuliani added that his report on his findings should be completed by Wednesday or Thursday, but he was unsure when they would be made public.

“When it comes to Republican voters, it’s clear,” said Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana. “They would like an early dismissal.”
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts would preside over an impeachment trial, with broad discretion over motions offered by individual senators, who otherwise have minimal influence over the proceedings. A majority of senators are empowered to vote to overrule a decision by Roberts, although that could be a tall order for Republicans. As many as five of them, but at least three of them, are running for reelection in 2020 in states that could vote to oust Trump.
Trump’s voting base can accept Senate Republicans’ internal political limitations, said John Fredericks, a conservative talk radio host in Virginia, if they help the president offer an aggressive defense. Indeed, Trump loyalists are excited about the possibility of a trial where the president can make his case.
But they expect Senate Republicans to be full participants, calling witnesses that the GOP base believes would support Trump’s claims that former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter are corrupt and deserve to be investigated. Democratic allegations against Trump center around a July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in which the president asked his counterpart to investigate the Bidens.
In other words, the base expects Hunter Biden, at least, to be called as a witness. Whether there are 51 Republican votes to satisfy that demand is unclear.
“What most Trump voters want is for their belief in the president to be justified — and for him to be exonerated,” Fredericks said. “The base wants to hear from the Bidens and wants them to be asked legitimate questions.”

Show to reach millions across the United States until the acquittal of President Donald J. Trump
November 14, 2019, Washington, D.C. – War Room: Impeachment, a new daily radio show, and podcast, will begin airing nightly on Salem Radio Network from Monday, November 18 at 9 pm in each local media market.
Hosted by former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon – alongside Trump 2016 communications adviser Jason Miller and Raheem Kassam, former chief adviser to Brexit leader Nigel Farage – the program offers expert analysis on the historic impeachment hearings of President Donald J. Trump, broadcasting until the day after his acquittal.
Bannon commented: “We are honored to join Salem, the largest conservative and populist radio network in the country, which will help us deliver information and analysis on the impeachment of President Trump to hard-working Americans as they get on with their busy lives. The citizens of this country will be the real jury in this case and it is vital they get the facts.”
The show is being produced in co-operation with veteran broadcaster John Fredericks and will continue to air on the John Fredericks network throughout Virginia and in parts of Florida at 9-10am live, seven days a week.
“The John Fredericks Radio Network is excited to offer national syndication for Stephen K. Bannon’s War Room: Impeachment live radio show and podcast from the nation’s capital. While War Room is now top of mind for all the key influencers in D.C., our goal is to also make the show available for all America so they are informed and engaged on impeachment. We are reaching the grassroots to break through Nancy Pelosi’s beltway fake news firewall,” Fredericks commented.
Many star guests have already appeared on the show, including Congressman Mark Meadows, Senator Mike Braun, Nigel Farage MEP, Congressman Matt Gaetz, David Bossie, Scott Rasmussen, and David Rivkin.
Leading business magazine Fast Company recently said of War Room: Impeachment: “If you want to know tomorrow’s talking points today, this is the place to be. It’s the closest thing to hanging out with Trump himself in your bathrobe… the hosts bring a sharp understanding of impeachment packaged in a rollicking radio format.”
In addition to live broadcasts available on Salem, the John Fredericks network, and at www.warroom.org, War Room: Impeachment is also available as a podcast on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher, and Soundcloud.

Salem Radio Network broadcasts on more than 2,700 affiliate radio stations nationwide.
For “War Room: Impeachment” syndication, please contact, John Fredericks at email@example.com or call 757-692-1710.
Salem Radio Network will begin airing nightly broadcasts of “War Room: Impeachment” on Monday, November 18 at 9:06 pm. The new radio program will focus on the historic impeachment inquiry of President Donald J. Trump. Hosted by conservative leader Steve Bannon, the show is being produced in cooperation with veteran Virginia broadcaster John Fredericks.
The program will follow the standard SRN Talk Clock and will replace the first hour (9-10 pm ET) of its nightly refeed of “America First with Dr. Sebastian Gorka” through the House hearings on impeachment and any possible vote to do so. If that occurs, the program will continue through a possible trial in the U.S. Senate.

Ziegler, though, is a self-described libertarian conservative, and that remove from the Trump mind-set makes his show less vital than the uncut real thing. War Room: Impeachment is hosted by Stephen K. Bannon (yes, that Steve Bannon) along with 2016 Trump campaign messaging czar Jason Miller and former Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassam. If you want to know tomorrow’s talking points today, this is the place to be. It’s the closest thing to hanging out with Trump himself in your bathrobe.
Bannon’s well-cultivated sense of the dramatic is on display as he frames impeachment as an existential event for the man he helped elect president three years ago and who sees this effort to remove Trump from office (or at least discredit his historical presidency) as a rebuke of Bannon’s own America-First foreign policy beliefs.
In a daily 45-minute dispatch from the basement of the “Breitbart Embassy” in Washington, D.C., (which also airs live on some radio network I’d never heard of but I have to bet is broadcast into a lot of red districts across the United States), the hosts bring a sharp understanding of impeachment packaged in a rollicking radio format. The president did nothing wrong, and process arguments are losers. This is a fierce political fight, and the Republicans need its most virulent attack dogs, such as Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz, to be part of impeachment and pushback on the “master class in political disinformation warfare” by Nancy Pelosi.
The highest praise Ezra Klein can offer Pelosi is that she’s good at counting the number of votes she has, which, you know, is a lot less fun than Bannon and company’s bluster.
Beyond sheer entertainment value, one can see Bannon pulling every string possible and amplifying others in stoking Trump’s grassroots support against the impeachment effort. A regular feature of War Room is “Make ’em Famous,” a segment spotlighting freshman Democratic congresspeople who won in districts that voted for Trump in 2016 and targeting them for particular pressure in the impeachment fight. He wants to ruin their political careers if they dare vote to impeach Trump. It’s a far more visceral effort at civic activism than what Rubicon musters, and it may prove to be more effective, too.
In just three weeks, they have been consistently ahead of the curve in seeing not just where impeachment is headed but in shaping that future. On Friday, Rudy Guiliani appeared on the show saying that Adam Schiff, who will be running the hearings this week, should be called to testify before his own hearing for orchestrating this sham proceeding to begin with. On Saturday, Trump called for not only Schiff but also Pelosi and former VP Joe Biden to be witnesses in the inquiry.
It’s exactly the kind of “No, you’re fake news,” through-the-looking-glass mind bender that can make a rational person go bonkers in 2019. But as Bannon put it, the real impeachment jurors are the American people, not the senators.
So better to hear it unfiltered and figure out an effective response than be fooled and outmatched again.

Stephen K. Bannon, former chief strategist for President Trump and CEO/Chairman of the Trump for President campaign in 2016 has launched a seven-day a week live radio program on the John Fredericks Radio Network.
Richmond, VA — By John Fredericks
Recognizing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s master messaging on President Trump’s pending impeachment and frustrated by the lack of a coordinated response by Republicans, Steve Bannon took matters into his own hands.
He started his own impeachment war room — in the form of a live radio show in the basement of his Capitol Hill townhouse. It gives rapid response new meaning.
It’s also streamed live on WJFNradio.com, the John Fredericks Radio APP and WarRoom.org.
War Room: Impeachment is already up to episode 16, and can be heard on our JFRS YouTube Channel as well as other podcast platforms and WarRoom.org.
Run from our new studio installed in Steve Bannon’s basement on Capitol Hill, it’s a real live war room, set up just like it would be in the Trump White House or like the 2016 campaign in New York.
War Room: Impeachment takes the day’s impeachment events, breaks them down with keen, insightful analysis and develops daily strategic communication and messaging plan.
Most important, Bannon and his team provide D.C. GOP influencers and Trump supporters with an every-day blueprint for action.
This is must-listen radio.
Joining Steve Bannon each day are Jason Miller, former Trump for President strategic communication advisor and Raheem Kassam, who ran the war room for the UK Independent Party and Brexit for Nigel Farage.
Other guests have included U.S. Reps. Mark Meadows, Matt Gaetz, former Trump Administration Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, former deputy Trump 2016 campaign manager Dave Bossie, and many others.
“The Nullification Project has worked extraordinarily well for Pelosi and the Democrats,” Bannon said. “Pelosi has taught a master’s class in political misinformation. It’s been brilliantly executed. She is the best there is at this.”
The White House decided against launching an impeachment war room internally.
So Bannon went external.
“The Democrats were taking free shots on goal on a daily basis, with no resistance at the beginning from Republicans or the White House,” Bannon added.
“Now they are fighting back, and our War Room: Impeachment show is a daily blueprint for action, including daily messaging that runs exactly like a real political war room like we had during the campaign, or like the White House employed for tax cuts and Bret Kavanaugh,” Bannon explained.
Now Bannon and his War Room: Impeachment team and guests are driving the GOP response narrative, and explaining what his happening to our listeners in frank and candid terms.
Jonathan Easley of The Hill newspaper had a great story on the show’s objectives.
Don’t miss a day of War Room: Impeachment.

Virginia Dems Poised For Total Takeover of General Assembly
Reminiscent of the cult movie classic “Night of the Living Dead” – the Virginia radical Democrats are banging at the door of common sense.
There may not be enough boards and nails to stop them.
The crazies are at the gate.
It’s Caucus of the Corn – led by House Minority Leader Eileen Filler-Corn coming out of the high stalks at the stroke of midnight.
Plagued by money woes, the Virginia GOP is on the verge of generational political Armageddon.
It’s the equivalent of a Republican political nuclear winter and Virginia is about to become the south’s new California.
The state Democrats’ message has been succinct and salient: “Trump sucks. Guns.”
To counter, the Republican message has been garbled and non-existent, driven by local issues only.
State Senate Gone
The state senate is already gone. Holding a 21-19 edge, the best the GOP can do now is to hold their loss to two seats. If the Democrats win control of the state senate 21-19 consider is a resounding GOP victory. The night could end 23-17, which would spell catastrophe for the Virginia Republican senate caucus.
GOP House Hangs by a Thread
There is a GOP pathway to holding the House of Delegates, albeit a narrow one. It centers on Republicans holding three key seats: Paul Milde in Fredericksburg (Milde defeated Bob Thomas in a primary) Tim Hugo, the last Republican standing in Northern Virginia and Chris Stolle in Virginia Beach. If they hold those three, they have a fighting chance. If not: enter Caucus of the Corn, stage left.
We’ll have complete district by district predictions at 6:00 AM tomorrow.
