Sheriff David Clarke joined Big League Politics to discuss the urgent crisis on our southern border, and he also had some relevant behind-the-scenes information for us on the situation at Fox News.
Clarke was a constant face on the Fox News network until he had a sit-down meeting with Suzanne Scott in the New York office about being a paid contributor, like he was promised, and then he never heard from Fox News again. The African-American conservative who sparked vice-presidential speculation in 2016 quite literally couldn’t catch a break at the globalist Fox News network.
“Roger Ailes liked me a lot. Bill Shine liked me and wanted me to be a paid contributor. Mainly it’s an inconvenience…that’s okay, it gave me a stage, it elevated the issues I’m talking about,” Clarke told Big League Politics in the middle of several investigative tours that he is making to the southern border.
Sheriff Clarke’s recent stop in McAllen, Texas put him in prime form. Clarke is representing WeBuildTheWall.us, an effort backed by Steve Bannon and possible DHS chief Kris Kobach to build as much of the wall as possible on private landowner terrain.
“Roger Ailes is gone. Fox imploded,” Clarke said, pointing to the canning of Bill O’Reilly and Eric Bolling.
“A paid contributor is 300 dollars a hit, but it’s at least payment for your time….
“I moved on, but I see what’s going on now. I’m not surprised. Rupert Murdoch is a conservative but then he got rid of Roger Ailes, and Roger Ailes ran the whole thing. So he put his sons in charge. His sons are Uber-lefties…
“All over the country, I think there’s too much of a reliance on Fox. You’ve got Rush Limbaugh, One America now, Breitbart, Newsmax, Big League Politics. I want to encourage people on the right to use a plurality of sources, not just Fox News,” Sheriff Clarke said.
“What happened to Judge Jeanine I think was convenient for them…There’s not much there. What’s happening with Tucker is an organized effort to get rid of our people,” Sheriff Clarke said.
“Fox will use these things to censor us. They are center-left now. Because of the Murdoch boys being lefties, they want to take that hard edge off.”
“I’m hard edge but I don’t hide it. I’m a hardcore conservative.”

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis
After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”
Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus”
Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails.
— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) March 30, 2020
Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”
Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.
In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.
With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.
Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.
A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.
This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.
Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
