Today the editors of Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal slammed GOP frontrunner Donald Trump for his opposition to the publication’s long-standing support for open border trade and immigration policies.

The Wall Street Journal, like Murdoch, is decidedly open borders. In 1984, the WSJ editorial board wrote, “If Washington still wants to ‘do something’ about immigration, we propose a five-word constitutional amendment: There shall be open borders.”

Breitbart News has previously exposed how Murdoch is the co-chair of what is arguably one of the most powerful open borders immigration lobbying firms in the country, the Partnership For A New American Economy. Similarly, Murdoch has joined executives at Goldmann Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, and Citigroup in urging Congress to fast-track President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, which Sen. Marco Rubio described as the “second pillar” of a President Rubio’s three-pillared foreign policy platform.

If you're a fan of Trump that's great, but if you're simply a fan of policy wonks who have good ideas and skills but aren't showmen like Trump, it's bad. If Trump wins, all we'll get from here on out are people who play the game better than others. Which is basically how it is, anyway, but Trump's rewriting all the rules. 

 
Pretty much spot on except that I would offer that Trump is playing by the rules, same as everyone else, just better.  

I just read Adams now and he is right on top of this and I agree with him.  Trump is playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers ...

Moving on, its about picking someone to make the final decision or have the last word on whatever, so to speak, right ?  In the perfect world of the benevolent dictator school of thought, we can only hope that that person has not been compromised, bought or corrupted before they get that power.  Then they face their biggest obstacle in getting anything done, the corrupt, self perpetuating, monolithic unionized federal bureaucracy and the patronage system.   Full of deadwood, waste and willful malfeasance ( EPA anyone ?).  It is impossible to fire anyone, we are told over and over again.  Says who ?   FDR said that government workers should not be unionized because it is counter productive to the job at hand and I agree. 

 Someone who reaches power outside of the political patronage system, is not beholden to it.  If someone should be fired, then it stands a much better chance of happening.  Sure it gets tied up in court, but its a beginning.  All the idle government owned real estate sitting, untouched because its in someone's district, might get unloaded.  yada ...  But, finally, maybe it gets done, by someone who knows what they are doing.  

Someone has to pick up the kicked can.  I want the most qualified and unshackled person doing it and hope that they are doing it for the right and honest reasons.

Keeping it brief because I'm about to watch a film...

This is not about future maneuvers. There are several issues at play here.

Issue one is that debate moderators should be reasonably unbiased. Megyn Kelly is not.  There is a lot of footage of her slating Trump on her own shows. What is the point of having debates if the news the next day is all about a moderator feuding with Trump?

The press release from Fox was in Trump's words childish and insulting and is the main reason he walked. Trump is THE reason the previous Fox debate had the highest ratings in US cable history. They made a fortune from it but now think they can sell him a bad deal?  Nope.

Fox is owned by Rupert Murdoch who is an elite globalist that campaigns for open borders, as many of the scumbags do. This sets the agenda at Fox and explains why they will never give Trump a level playing field. 

Finally as already mentioned giving Fox the finger and staging his own event makes Trump a hero in the eyes of many Democrats who despise Fox. It is Trump's cross party support that will make him president.

In terms of what Scott Adams way saying read the whole thing here. It makes more sense taken in context. http://blog.dilbert.com/post/138125409321/trump-fox-news-and-megyn-kelly-explained-master

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2016/01/fox-statement-taunting-trump-was-all-roger-ailes.html?mid=twitter-share-di

Panicking Fox insiders are now trying to pin the blame for the crisis on Roger Ailes. According to Ann Coulter's recent tweet Trump's alternate event will air on CNN.

Fox News Statement Taunting Trump Was ‘100 Percent’ Roger Ailes



As the war between Fox News and Donald Trump ratchets up, Roger Ailes is fighting off criticism from his senior executives over his handling of the crisis. According to one highly placed source, last night, Ailes sent out the now-famous statement mocking Trump as being scared to meet with the “Ayatollah” and “Putin” if he became president. “That was Roger 100 percent,” the source explained. “A lot of people on the second floor” — where top Fox executives work — “didn’t think it was a good idea.”


Fox executives are also troubled that Ailes’s principal adviser right now is his longtime personal lawyer and Fox & Friends contributor Peter Johnson Jr. “He wrote the statement with Peter,” the source explained. “Peter is running the war room,” another Ailes friend told me. Fox executives are worried that Ailes is relying on an attorney with scant communications experience as the network is reeling from the biggest PR crisis in recent memory. Historically, during a crisis like this Ailes would have huddled with his veteran communications guru Brian Lewis. But Ailes fired Lewis in 2013 over his concerns that Lewis had been a source for my 2014 Ailes biography. Since Lewis’s ouster, Johnson has taken on the role of media counselor.

A great tweet a moment ago:

Trump just turned the whole into the KIDDIE TABLE...



Trump is holding his own event to raise money for wounded veterans that other campaigns are now wanting to be part of. When the ratings come out Fox is going to be so humiliated... if they still have any candidates taking part.  

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/01/27/trump-campaign-manager-other-candidates-thinking-about-skipping-fox-debate/

Speaking on Good Morning America and Morning Joe this morning, Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski hinted that other candidates were thinking of dropping out of the upcoming Fox News debate after Trump decided to bail.



http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/poll-without-trump-83-say-they-will-skip-gop-debate/

FOX News host Greta Van Susteren asked her conservative viewers if they will tune in to Thursday’s GOP debate now that Donald Trump has announced he will not participate.

83% of viewers said they WILL NOT watch the debate.

‘Are you going to watch GOP debate?’

Megyn Kelly has cost Fox millions in ad revenue but look at why Fox are so hostile to Trump and yet softball Marco Rubio.

The Anti-Trump Network: Fox News Money Flows into Open Borders Group

The announcement from Donald Trump’s campaign that the Republican frontrunner will “definitely not” partake in Thursday night’s Fox News debate has sent shock waves throughout the nation’s political scene.

At a press event Tuesday evening, Trump seemed to cite disparate treatment from the network as his reasoning for not participating. “What’s wrong over there, something’s wrong,” Trump said of the “games” Roger Ailes and the network are “playing.”

In asking the question of “what’s wrong over there?” Trump has shined a spotlight on one of Washington’s best kept secrets: namely, Fox’s role via its founder Rupert Murdoch in pushing an open borders agenda. The Trump campaign is a direct threat to Murdoch’s efforts to open America’s borders. Well-concealed from virtually all reporting on Fox’s treatment of Trump is the fact that Murdoch is the co-chair of what is arguably one of the most powerful immigration lobbying firms in country, the Partnership for a New American Economy (PNAE).

In addition to blanketing the country, media, and politicians with literature, advertisements, and a barrage of lobbyists pushing for open border immigration policies, the Partnership for A New American Economy (PNAE) was a prime lobbyist for one of the biggest open borders pushes in American history: Sen. Marco Rubio’s 2013 Gang of Eight immigration bill.

While Donald Trump has pledged to deport those illegally residing in the country and temporarily pause Muslim migration, Rubio’s immigration bill would have granted immediate amnesty and eventual citizenship to millions of illegal aliens, it would have doubled the annual admission of foreign workers, and it would have dispensed 33 million green cards to foreign nationals in the span of a single decade despite current record immigration levels.

While Megyn Kelly made headlines with her heated questioning of Donald Trump, not one of the Fox News anchors asked Rubio in the first Fox News debate about his signature piece of legislation, which Murdoch’s immigration lobbying firm had endorsed. Instead, they lobbed Rubio a series of softballs, such as asking Rubio if he could put God and veterans in the same sentence.
