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.

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.

ISLAMABAD – Kargil-like war can occur again as India had tested the pride of Pakistan by annexing held Kashmir, feared a senior US diplomat.
In an interview with John Fredericks Radio Network on ‘The John Fredericks Show,’ Anne Patterson – who remained the US envoy in Islamabad from July 2007 to October 2010 – said:
“Now it looks like they (Pakistan are trying at least temporarily to find some diplomatic solution … unsuccessfully trying to find some diplomatic solution. But yes you could see that (replay of Kargil) you could see a very aggressive element of the Pakistani military because frankly, it’s a huge blow to their pride and … and pride matters a lot in really most countries.”
The Kargil war occurred when Pervez Musharraf ruled the country in 1999. It took place between May and July that year.

Brandon Beach leveled his most direct attack yet against former U.S. Rep. Karen Handel in an interview with a Washington radio show, mocking his 6th District rival’s defeats before he agreed with a host who called her a “Never Trumper.”
The state senator on Tuesday told John Fredericks, a former Georgia broadcaster who has a D.C.-based show, that Handel has “never been re-elected to an office in her career” and that if she wins the GOP nod she’ll lose again to Democratic Rep. Lucy McBath.
Beach also said Handel struggled to defeat Jon Ossoff in 2017 and lost to McBath last year because she didn’t cozy up enough to President Donald Trump, who only narrowly carried the district in the 2016 vote.

Truth to Power In Petersburg
By John Fredericks
PETERSBURG, VA —
He's been ostracized by both major Virginia political parties. As a sitting incumbent House of Delegates member, he was kicked out of the Democratic Party by the Richmond establishment elites and was denied renomination.
He ran as an Independent and won election for his seat while serving time in county jail.
The Republicans, in control of the General Assembly, shunned him, gave him a converted closet for an office and stripped him of all committee assignments.
He ran for Richmond mayor, seized the lead in early polling, only to see his vote base collapse on election day when the entire Richmond establishment rallied to stop him: bankers, financial houses, monied interests, lobby shops, Democrat elites, developers, Governor McAuliffe, and Republicans. He finished third.
Everyone wrote Joe Morrissey off as politically dead. Until tonight, that is. A funny thing happened on the way to "Fighting Joe's" political wake. It's called voters.
"Pothole Joe," as I call him, is poised to pull the upset of the decade tonight.
I'm predicting that Pothole Joe upsets longtime establishment incumbent Sen. Roz Dance today in the Democratic primary for state senate in District 16, which encompasses Petersburg, Dinwiddie, Hopewell and parts of Richmond.
Morrissey has knocked on over 10,000 doors, he's walked neighborhoods 139 out of the last 142 days, and he has focused on the needs of his district. The former House member, a defense attorney before he was disbarred for the second time last year by the Virginia Bar, is known for his flamboyance, and for defending those in trouble who had meager defense resources. Morrissey once won over 50 trials in a row in central Virginia.
Now he stresses what matters most to his potential constituents: he promises to fix potholes, smelly dumps, out of control water bills and untimely trash pickup.
His opponent says that is not her job. "Pothole Joe" says he'll make the calls to get it done.
He's also unabashedly pro-life.
"You can revere life and also be a proud Democrat," Morrissey said on my radio show this week.
Dance hit the trifecta of big Virginia Democratic Party elites, garnering endorsements from: Governor Ralph Northam, Senator Tim Kaine, former Governor Terry McAuliffe, and many other state senators.
Morrissey has picked up the official endorsement of only four Democratic officials — all former or current mayors in cities in the district.
Morrissey, who hosts a popular radio show from 10:00 AM to 12:00 pm in Richmond on my station–WJFN 100.5 FM, "The Fighting Joe Morrissey Show," talks to people every day who call into his show. This is a huge advantage. Talk radio callers tell you all you need to know. Take it from me: it's a daily truth serum….an everyday dose of reality. If you listen, that is.
Upset #1 State Senate District 16 – Democrat
Morrissey over Dance
Upset #2 State Senate District 24 – GOP
Tina Freitas over incumbent Emmett Hanger.
On paper, Sen. Hanger should win this race. He's a wonderful man and he's served with purpose and integrity for 24 years.
Freitas, wife of former Green Beret and House of Delegates member Nick Freitas, is a novice first time candidate who has been on offense vs. Hanger since day one of the race. She's attempted to draw a contrast with Hanger on life, guns, Medicare expansion and taxes.
While her ideological attacks have been admirably defended by Hanger, they have resonated in a very conservative district, and have put the veteran legislator on defense.
Where Freitas will win this race is on pure enthusiasm and grassroots activism. She brings a level of vigor and excitement to her base that Hanger can't match. I emceed a fundraiser for her last month in Northern Virginia hosted by Pete Snyder and I was blown away by the turnout and enthusiasm of her supporters.
It reminded me of Amanda Chase in 2015, when she upset incumbent Sen. Steve Martin in Chesterfield. I got that race wrong then.
I won't get it wrong this time. I'm a quick study.
Democratic State Senate–District 6
Lewis over Randall
Lynwood this and Lynwood that, yeah whatever. All he does is win races. Again.
Democratic State Senate–District 7
Cheryl Turpin in a walk on the beach.

See Barbara, you are loved — really!
Democratic State Senate–District 35
Saslaw over Taeb
The Godfather crushes Taeb
LOL, this is a rout! Dick Saslaw has knocked on a bazillion doors, and made a jillion phone calls. Meanwhile his opponent, Yasmine Taeb, a complete social media creation, just called for cops in Virginia to be disarmed. She believes cops should throw cupcakes at would be assailants.
Saslaw wins big with this simple mantra: vote for me, I'm not nuts.
Oh, and I get money for roads and Metro, too!
Democrats House Of Delegates – District 50
Lee over Wolfe
It's #CommyLee of the CCCP over Wolfe! Karl Marx would be proud! Workers of the world unite!
GOP State Senate–District 7
Weems over Kiggans
First, Carolyn Weems is a school board member and has been elected in the District seven times. Second: Chris LaCivita is her general consultant. Third, Weems wins, although Kiggans is closing and makes it too close for comfort. She needed another two weeks. Chris took this one wire to wire.
Remember the name Jen Kiggans. She'll be back.
GOP State Senate–District 13
Higgins over Meyer and Buscher
Chris LaCivita goes two for two with Higgins. I don't bet against Chris in Senate primaries in Virginia. Higgins earns the unique pleasure of losing in the fall against juggernaut Democrat John Bell.
Ron Meyer, you'll call me on election night in November and say thank goodness John you were right. A bright future for sure Ron–just not tonight.
GOP State Senate–District 15
Ruff over Sturdifen
GOP State Senate–District 17
Reeves over Breeden
Seriously Rich Breeden, you called Bryce Reeves a "Never Trumper?" If he's a Never Trumper — give me another 250 just like him for the 2020 Trump Re-election campaign in Virginia!
Reeves in a romp.
GOP House of Delegates District 28
Thomas over Milde
Bob Thomas, the incumbent has worked hard. Paul Milde, who almost beat Thomas in 2017, has mounted another serious challenge.
But Cissi Howell, former Speaker Bill Howell's wife, is for Thomas. Do you have any clue as to the influence of Cissi in that district? She's like the Fredericksburg Oracle. She puts Thomas over the top.
GOP House of Delegates District 68
Coward over Losi
The GOP House of Delegates in Virginia has 51 members.
None are African American. One is a Millennial.
Garrison Coward is both.
