Why Dobbs:

    Andrea Mazzarino – Why Dobbs Is a Recipe for Disaster in the Military The other day, a judge lifted a nearly 50-year-old injunction against a 150-year-old Arizona anti-abortion law. It allows that procedure only if a woman’s life is in jeopardy. A doctor who ignores it could face two to five years in jail. And so it goes (and goes and goes) in a country that’s still, in part at least, extremely Trumpian and a Supreme Court that could hardly be more so. Strange, isn’t it, that the president who went out of his way to put three anti-abortion judges on the Supreme Court claimed in 1999, when he was still a real-estate magnate in New York City, that “I’m very pro-choice”? When running for president as a Republican, he would, of course, emphatically claim that “I am pro-life” (though the only accurate thing he could have said would have been “I am pro-Trump”). When he began changing his stated beliefs to fit the new Donald Trump he was promoting as a possible president, he had this exchange: 'I know...
    In December 2021, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor used the word “stench” to describe the extreme politicization of the Court by far-right Republicans — and she isn’t alone in that view. Polls, in recent months, have shown the Court’s reputation suffering more and more. David Litt, a former speechwriter for President Barack Obama, discusses that soiled reputation in an article published by The Atlantic on July 24 — laying out some reasons why most Americans, according to polls, now hold the High Court in such low regard. One of them is the Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the case in which the Court overturned Roe v. Wade after 49 years and ended national protection for abortion rights in the United States. “Just a few years ago, a clear majority of Americans trusted the Supreme Court,” Litt explains. “Now, a month after Roe v. Wade was overturned, poll after poll shows that a clear majority of Americans do not — to which many of the Court’s closest observers would say: ‘What took so long?’ For...
    The Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson confirmed the worst fears of reproductive rights activists when six justices undid decades of legal precedent and wiped away the constitutional right to abortion. Just weeks later, abortion bans have taken effect in eleven states, with at least four more soon to follow. The bans will expand into other states, some of which will bar not just the procedure, but our ability even to talk about it. Human rights are interdependent, and the fall of Roe v. Wade sets in motion a dangerous array of consequences that will cascade far beyond the gutting of abortion rights. The decision immediately triggered laws in many states that criminalize not just the person seeking an abortion, but also those who attempt to provide the services. Abortion access starts with access to information, and free expression is imperiled when information-sharing is considered a crime. Moves are being made around the country to curtail abortion-related speech. Already, in Missouri, a measure attached to a rash of proposed bills would criminalize aiding anyone seeking abortion care out...
    Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield had a new theory for why Lou Dobbs Tonight was cancelled: “Maybe it’s about China.” He began by saying, “I have come to the conclusion that Fox News no longer supports President Trump’s America First principles, which is why they couldn’t stand Lou Dobbs on their air.” Lou Dobbs Tonight was cancelled in February following a string of controversies including a lawsuit from Smartmatic accusing Dobbs and other Fox News personalities of pushing baseless claims about the 2020 election. A Fox News statement to Mediaite said the cancellation of the show was a part of planned changes to programming after the election. Stinchfield lauded Dobbs’ coverage of the Trump administration by showing clips of him praising the former president. He then said, “Dobbs has always been a champion of President Trump, but maybe Fox News banishing Dobbs from their network is more sinister. Maybe it’s about China.” Pointing to the Murdoch family’s investments and business ties to “that rogue nation,” he implied collusion. His evidence for his claim was joined by a graphic of the Fox News...
    New York (CNN Business)Fox News' official reason for canceling Lou Dobbs' show -- a post-election programing adjustment -- doesn't quite add up.Dobbs was the highest-rated host on Fox Business. He often doubled his lead-in's ratings.Although Fox isn't saying, the timing of Dobbs' cancellation Friday appears to be no coincidence: It took place 24 hours after Dobbs and Fox were named in a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit filed by voting technology company Smartmatic.Fox may see Dobbs as an acceptable sacrificial lamb. NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik said on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday that the network's decision to cancel Dobbs' show reminds him of the way Rupert Murdoch's news tabloids in London handled their phone-hacking scandals about a decade ago.Read More"They would throw somebody over the side and see if that was enough," he said. "This is an effort to cauterize the wound to distance Fox from this feverish conspiracy theory."Murdoch's media company News Corp. faced a sequence of scandals, beginning in 2005, after journalists at British newspapers were accused of hacking into the phones of celebrities, lawmakers, royalty, murder victims and...
    Lou Dobbs spoke with David Schoen, one of Donald Trump’s lawyers in his upcoming impeachment trial, on Wednesday and repeatedly pressed him on why they’re even giving credence to the “sinister process” in the first place. The Senate is taking up the trial next week, after the former president was impeached for inciting the violent storming of the Capitol last month, but Dobbs has made it clear he thinks the GOP and the Trump team shouldn’t even engage with the trial as legitimate. Schoen told Dobbs these are “unlawful proceedings” against a former president and said, “If you think any citizen in the country ought to be hauled off the street and brought before the senate for a trial — a trial, by the way, lacking in all due process — then we’ve got a very sad situation, dangerous situation in this country.” Dobbs went on to ask, “Why is the president even responding to this?” He called the trial “evil nonsense” that the Trump team and Republicans shouldn’t give “any breath of credence” to. Schoen said it’s a good...
    Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs questioned why police in Washington would draw their guns in response to the riots from Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol Building. Correspondent Chad Pergram said in his live report that officials were drawing their weapons, at which point Dobbs jumped in and asked, “Why would they draw their guns? What was the threat?” To reiterate, a large, violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the United States Capitol Building and raided the House and Senate chambers. There was an armed standoff at the House chamber doors at one point. Pergram explained, “They were trying to protect hundreds of members who were inside the chamber, frankly trying to…” Dobbs actually jumped in and said, “I’m not asking you to speak for them. I’m asking you did they explain why they drew their guns.” Pergram said there was no official statement, but again added, “You just don’t have security breaches like that.” Dobbs remarked at one point, “Just as the country is dealing with trying to constrain lethal force, that would be a poor time to suggest that...
    Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs is continuing to side with President Donald Trump’s baseless claims about the election being “stolen” from him. On Monday, Dobbs said the following: “We’re eight weeks from the election, and we still don’t have verifiable, tangible support for the crimes that everyone knows were committed — that is, defrauding other citizens who voted with fraudulent votes. We know that’s the case in Nevada, we know it’s the case in Pennsylvania and a number of other states, but we have had a devil of a time finding actual proof. Why?” There is no evidence of voter fraud that would change the outcome of the election. Despite this, Dobbs and other key Trump allies have stood by the president as he has claimed all sorts of conspiracies — including claims directly to the Georgia Secretary of State that were debunked on the call. Rollins responded to Dobbs by saying, “You haven’t been able to get it before the courts. Unless you can make your case before the courts, there’s no reprieve here.” Judge after judge — including Trump-appointed...
    Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs snapped at White House advisor Stephen Miller as he raged over why Republicans and the White House aren’t doing more on the president’s legal fight in multiple states. Dobbs and Miller were largely in agreement as Dobbs brought up Ted Cruz’s public support for one lawsuit concerning the Pennsylvania election and offer to “stand ready to present the oral argument.” But Dobbs was still angry at the rest of the Republicans for not doing more to defend the president. “The president warns for months and months and months about mail-in ballots and the potential for fraud, and the Republicans do nothing, Stephen. Nothing,” Dobbs said. “What’s wrong with the Republican party?!” Miller agreed and asked, “Where is the outrage?” Dobbs continued to ask, “Where the hell are the Republicans?!” As Miller asked if the U.S. is a “third world country” or “banana republic,” Dobbs remarked, “From your lips to God’s ears.” “The reality is that this president right now is fighting — and let’s be straightforward about it — he’s fighting all alone,” Dobbs continued. “And...
    Former acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell has been one of the public faces of President Donald Trump’s legal fight in states still counting votes that will decide the election. On Fox Business Thursday afternoon, Lou Dobbs erupted on Grenell and confronted him on what they and the GOP are actually doing. Dobbs declared that what’s happening in these states is a “national disgrace.” Grenell said “everybody just needs to do their job” and took shots at the media coverage of their press conference earlier alleging issues with the votes. As Grenell made allegations about violations of federal law, an annoyed Dobbs jumped in and said, “You’re going to. This is Thursday. You were filing a legal action today against those fraudulent votes. Has that been filed? Because you’re complaining about the press instead of telling us what you’re actually getting done. As you said, you have a job to do. I’m interested in what you’re doing about your job.” “I would’ve had the letter out to DOJ and the FBI if I wasn’t sitting here on your...

    Alex Thomas October 24, 2020 0 Comments Fox Business host Lou Dobbs slammed Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) over the way that Graham has led the Senate Judiciary Committee. Dobbs went on to say that he does not know why anybody in South Carolina would vote for Lindsey Graham. Dobbs began his segment on Friday by saying, “Just to be clear, I don’t know why anyone in the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey Graham.” He continued: “It’s just outrageous. This is the guy who keeps saying ‘stay tuned.’ He said he was going to get to the bottom of Obamagate with the Judiciary Committee which has been a year and a half, actually longer, of absolute inert, inert response to these pressing issues to our day.” Moments later, Dobbs recited a 2016 quote from Donald Trump about Graham in which Trump said, “I think Lindsey Graham is a disgrace, and I think you have one of the worst representatives of any representative in the United States. I don’t think he could run for dog catcher...
    After sending Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Senate for a vote for her to join the Supreme Court, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is facing a rejection from one of President Donald Trumps backers, Fox Business Lou Dobbs. Dobbs hit comes "for not subpoenaing the left-wing heads of the censorships Twitter and Facebook until after the election," he said. "I dont know why anyone in the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey Graham," Dobbs said. "It is just outrageous. This is a guy who keeps saying stay tuned. He said he would get to the bottom of Obamagate with the Judiciary Committee, which has been a year and a half, actually longer, of absolute inert response to these pressing issues of our day." Dobbs was referring to Grahams submitting to Twitter and Facebook CEOs passing on appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee headed by Graham. "I think were close to getting a voluntary agreement for after the (Nov. 3) election, which I think would be a great time to do it," Graham said Friday. Grahams committee...

    Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs raged against Senator Lindsey Graham Friday and asked why anyone in South Carolina would vote for him. Graham is, of course, up for reelection in less than two weeks, running against Jaime Harrison in a race that has gotten tons of national attention and led to Graham making multiple fundraising pleas on Fox News saying he’s being out-raised by his opponent. Dobbs blasted Graham Friday because he’s “not subpoenaing the left-wing heads of the censorships Twitter and Facebook until after the election.” The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman said they’re getting close to a “voluntary agreement” for them to appear some time after the election. This was enough to set off Dobbs: “I don’t know why anyone in the great state of South Carolina would ever vote for Lindsey graham. It’s just outrageous. This is the guy who keeps saying, ‘Stay tuned.’ He said he would get to the bottom of Obamagate with the judiciary committee, which has been a year end a half, actually longer, of absolute inert response to these pressing issues of our...
