Fox News drops Bill O’Reilly in wake of harassment allegations

Fox News is cutting ties with Bill O’Reilly, the biggest star in its 20-year history, after mounting allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior prompted the network to end his program. “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations,” parent company 21st Century Fox said in a statement, “the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel.” Wednesday’s decision seemed unimaginable a few short weeks ago, given O’Reilly’s long reign as the top-rated host in cable news. But the climate shifted dramatically after The New York Times reported on April 1 that O’Reilly or Fox had paid $13 million to settle five cases against him alleging sexual or other harassment. More than 50 advertisers withdrew from his prime-time show, and 21st Century Fox asked a law firm to investigate a complaint from a woman who said O’Reilly dropped efforts to make her a contributor in 2013 after she turned down his invitation to visit his hotel room. O’Reilly said in a statement Wednesday: “It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel.” O’Reilly, 67, had not previously commented on his status since leaving on vacation last week—he met Pope Francis Wednesday in a VIP line at the Vatican—but his lawyer issued a blistering statement Tuesday accusing his liberal opponents of a “smear campaign.” The statement said O’Reilly “has been subjected to a brutal campaign of character assassination that is unprecedented in post-McCarthyist America.”

Agreed..  At best, this was handled VERY poorly by the Murdoch family.  And, we suspect there will most definitely be a backlash against Fox News by Bill’s legion of fans, whom he didn’t even get to say goodbye to.  Wow..

Photo of Obama in Muslim garb shows deep ties to faith, O’Reilly says

Newly unearthed photos of President Obama in Muslim garb underscore his deep ties to the faith — and possibly help explain his reluctance to call out radical Islam, Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly said Wednesday. The photos, aired on “The O’Reilly Factor,” were taken at the wedding of Obama’s half-brother, Malik Obama, in Maryland sometime in the early 1990s, O’Reilly said. They were not offered as evidence that Obama is Muslim, as some of his critics insist, but to show his “deep emotional ties” to the religion of his father and stepfather, O’Reilly said. “There is no question the Obama administration’s greatest failure is allowing the Islamic terror group ISIS to run wild, murdering thousands of innocent people all over the world, including many Muslims,” said O’Reilly. “Mr. Obama has never, never acknowledged that mistake, nor does he define the ISIS threat accurately. “That group is killing innocent people in order to impose a radical version of Islam on the world,” the newsman added. “The jihad is solely based on theology, perverted as it may be.” A similar photo emerged in 2008, when Obama was running for the Democratic presidential nomination against Hillary Clinton. In that photo, Obama was seen wearing a white turban and Muslim dress. The photo was sent to the influential Drudge Report, and Obama’s campaign blamed Clinton for the “smear.” “On the very day that Senator Clinton is giving a speech about restoring respect for America in the world, her campaign has engaged in the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering we’ve seen from either party in this election,” then-Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said. The president reportedly met his older half-brother for the first time in 1985. Malik Obama now lives in a rural Kenyan village near Lake Victoria.

O’Reilly: Christianity’s Decline in America Could Lead to Collapse Like Roman Empire

During his “Talking Points Memo” segment on Tuesday, “The O’Reilly Factor” host Bill O’Reilly explained that Americans have changed their stance on a number of issues, including immigration and Christianity and that has been to the detriment of the United States.

To read the memo, or watch the video, click on the text above. Bill O’., on balance, is correct here. We are rapidly approaching a point of no return if we do not get control of our southern border (and our immigration crisis in general); something Obama has been doing his level best to make worse for the last 6+ years. As we’ve been saying here at The Daily Buzz from day one.. It is absolutely critical that we BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico; NOT back about 40 miles as was done last summer. Would-be illegals must NOT be allowed to set one foot on U.S. soil, or they suddenly get all sorts of rights and so on….which creates all sorts of other problems. They understand how to play the system. That’s why they sneak across the border and THEN surrender to U.S. Border Patrol agents. They know that they’ll get detained for a day or two, and then get released as long as they promise to show up at a deportation hearing….which over 95% of them fail to show to….and then they just disappear into the streets of America. Countless gang members, drug cartel members, and other criminal (and terrorist) elements do that ALL day long. Yes, we have ISIS/ISIL right here in America, as well as violent gang members (MS-13, etc.), Mexican drug cartel members, and so on! That should terrify every single American citizen. It’s WAY past time that we put a screaching halt to that scary nonsense…and BUILD THAT WALL/FENCE NOW above and below ground (to prevent tunneling)…and then it is imperative that we keep those Army National Guard troops physically ON the border until that wall/fence is built once and for all….however long that takes. Simultaneously, we need to be deporting illegal aliens by the tens, if not hundreds, of thousands….paying particular attention to known gang members and already convicted “criminal aliens.” Declared presidential candidates from BOTH major political parties (including Hillary, Jeb Bush, and so on) have already hinted that they intend on making this worse here by granting more executive amnesty than Obama has already done. How frightening is that?!?!! And, just think…that’s just ONE component of this massive problem. Our immigration laws (which Obama is ignoring anyway) are outdated, and not serving our needs as a nation. Therefore, the only common sense short-term solution is to halt ALL immigration, both legal AND illegal, until we have totally secured the border AND have overhauled our broken immigration system and laws. Immigration should benefit the U.S. economy and be mindful of our national security concerns. Right now, terorrists from the middle east, drug cartel members, gang members and on on…are going through the legal immigration steps and coming here. In addition, we’re allowing all sorts of uneducated, unskilled immigrants to come here who are NOT benefitting our economy, and in fact are taking jobs away from American citizens…and are crushing our infrastructure. Either you’re a contributor to the economy, or you’re a parasite. It’s really that simple. And, we need to be having that type of honest discussion, regardless of who that might offend…and insist that our federally (and state) elected officials honestly address these issues; NOT pander for votes. Our nation is in jeapordy. We can no longer afford to keep kicking the can down the road….or worse, follow Obama and Hillary (and Jeb’s) lead.

Bill O’Reilly to amnesty activist Jose Antonio Vargas: ‘You don’t have an entitlement to be here’

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly told Jose Antonio Vargas — an illegal immigrant who boldly went public with his status a few years ago and turned to activism to achieve amnesty for others — that he didn’t have “an entitlement” to be in the United States.

There are many things on which Bill O’. and I disagree.  For example, he is against the death penalty.  I’m for it.  But, in this case, Bill and I totally agree.  These illegal aliens DO think they have a right, an entitlement, to be here.  We also agree on the need to first secure the border before taking any action on immigration “reform.”  Glad to see Bill telling this illegal alien to his face that he doesn’t “have an entitlement to be here.”  Excellent!!    🙂

Bill O’Reilly: Ben Affleck would be ‘beheaded in a heartbeat’ by jihadists

Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly came down hard on Hollywood’s Ben Affleck for comments he made in defense of Islam on a recent television appearance, saying the actor is living in denial.

I saw Bill’s analysis last night. Frankly, I thought he was TOO nice and measured in his criticism of that breathtaking HollyWEIRD fool, Ben Affleck. And to think that uber-liberal, metro-sexual wimp is gonna be the next Batman. Gotham help us! But, I digress.. Islam is the basis/premise of a LOT of evil, barbaric acts in the world today. Yes, Ben (and Rossie O., Obama, Sen. Harry Reid, and the folks at CNN, PBS, and MSNBC)… That’s true! So, get over it! You simply cannot separate the religion from the acts of those who commit them in the name of that religion. After all, they wave silly flags, and chant Islamic phrases when they do what they do…and once they’ve done it, they “praise allah” for the barbaric evil they’ve just committed (i.e. beheaded someone, suicide bombed civilians, etc.). These Islamic wackos are lower than animals, and go by many names (i.e. ISIS/ISIL, Al Qaeda, the Taliban, Boko Haram, Hamas, Hezbollah, etc.)…but they all have one thing in common; Islam. And isn’t it curious that you won’t find a single so-called “moderate Muslim” leader/cleric condemning the actions of these Islamic terrorists when they do what they do. Why is that Ben? Nevermind.. don’t answer that. You’ll just make yourself look even more foolish than you already have.

American politicians and media persons need to start being honest about, and having honest discussions about, the correlation between Islam and those who commit evil, barbaric acts in its name…or we’ll end up like western Europe. In many western European countries sharia law is actually, seriously being considered; countries like Great Britain and France…because they buried THEIR collective heads in the sand, and chose not to address that problem because they were (also) too afraid of being labeled intolerant, racist, and so on. Political correctness will be our demise as a nation if we don’t confront this issue head on.
