INTERVIEW: Sheriff Clarke On The Border: ‘Roger Ailes Is Gone. Fox Imploded’

Published

on

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.”

POLL: Hispanics Support Big Government Across The Board

Even Hispanics Republicans are to the Left of the Average Republican

Published

on

Pew Research released some interesting statistics highlighting Latino voters’ views on national political problems based on a survey they conducted on Latino adults this past December.

Record numbers of Latinos — 32 million — will be voting in the 2020 general election. This exceeds the number of eligible black voters for the first time in history.

According to the results, the majority of Hispanic voters favor more government involvement on issues ranging from minimum wage to gun control.

62 percent of registered voters identify or lean toward the Democrat Party, whereas 34 percent connect with or lean in the direction of the Republican Party.

Several key findings stood out:

Most Hispanic voters (71%) say the government should do more to solve problems, while 27% say government is doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals.

The findings by Jens Manuel Krogstad, Mark Hugo Lopez and Abby Budiman revealed that 82 percent of Hispanics who identify with or lean Democrat “say the government should do more to solve problems, compared with 51% of those who affiliate with or lean toward the GOP.”

As far as minimum wage is concerned, the three authors found some interesting results

On the minimum wage, a large majority of Hispanic voters (79%) say they favor raising it to $15 an hour, including more than half (56%) who say they strongly favor this change. Majorities in both parties favor raising the minimum wage, though Hispanic Democrats are much more likely than Hispanic Republicans to do so (88% vs. 62%, respectively).

The same Hispanic support for big government held true for healthcare which the authors noted below:

Hispanic voters generally believe the U.S. government should play a role in providing health care to Americans. About seven-in-ten (71%) say it is the federal government’s responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, including 38% who favor a national health insurance system and 32% who prefer a mix of private and government health care coverage. Around a quarter (28%) say it is not the government’s responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, though most in this group say they prefer to keep Medicare and Medicaid.

When broken down across partisan lines, there were some key differences between Hispanics Democrats and Hispanic Republicans:

Hispanic Democrats and Republicans have different views on the role government should play in providing health coverage. About eight-in-ten Hispanic Democratic voters (84%) say it is the government’s responsibility to ensure Americans have health care, with 49% supporting a national health insurance system. Meanwhile, about half (51%) of Hispanic Republican voters say it is not the government’s responsibility to ensure universal coverage, though most in this group prefer to keep Medicare and Medicaid.

Interestingly, Hispanic Republicans were considerably to the Left of the average Republican voter on healthcare. 24 percent of Republican voters believe that the government should be responsible for guaranteeing healthcare coverage.

For gun control, there was also a noticeable Hispanic majority in favor of stricter gun laws:

“Around seven-in-ten Hispanic voters (68%) say gun laws should be stricter than they are today, while 24% say current gun laws are about right. Only 7% say gun laws should be less strict. The survey was conducted several months after a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, involving a suspect who said he targeted Mexicans.”

Similarly, there was a sharp partisan gap on gun control among Hispanics:

Among Hispanic Democratic voters, 80% say gun laws should be stricter. Hispanic Republican voters are more evenly divided, with 44% saying gun laws should be stricter and 42% saying gun laws are about right.

In the Republican case, Hispanics Republicans are to the Left of Republican voters on gun control. Only 27 percent of Republican voters want stricter gun laws.

All things considered, continued mass migration will not only ensure eventual Democrat Party domination in the near future, but also a more leftist Republican opposition that now has a big government faction within its ranks.
