Wayne Rogers Calls Fox Contributor A ‘Moron,’ Tells Her To ‘Shut Up’

wayneThere’s nothing quite as entertaining as watching two people lose it on TV during a serious news debate. It’s something that only happens rarely, but when it does, and the debate is live, there is nothing more gripping for viewers.

 The excitement took place during Saturday’s Fox News’ edition of Cashin’ In, hosted by Eric Bolling. He was speaking with his guests about the idea of negotiating with ISIS for the return of American hostages held by them.

The Examiner reported yesterday that among the four guests on the show debating the issue was frequent Fox News contributor Michelle Fields, who was joined by actor Wayne Rogers, from M*A*S*H, for what turned out to be a bit of dust-up.

The topic of discussion was a controversial one anyway, but when you put four guests with such diverse opinions against each other, sparks are going to fly.

When Rogers was asked if he supported paying a ransom for the release of hostages, he said: “All you do when you do that is encourage them to do more kidnappings.” The conversation moved along nicely as Fields agreed with Rogers, and added that, “We need to show these terrorists that when they kidnap an American it does not result in a monetary compensation, it results in swift retaliation.” michelle  So far so good — but then things took a turn for the worse.

When Bolling brought up President Obama’s recent swap of five Gitmo detainees for POW. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, he asked Rogers and Fields what the difference was between exchanging prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, and paying a financial ransom.

As you can see for yourself, during the heated exchange Rogers lost it at one point towards the end of the clip, threw his papers violently at the camera and shouted, with a vein popping in forehead:

“Let me finish, for God’s sake! Will you shut up? What is the matter with you? Why do you have to talk all the time? “You’re a moron because you talk too much and you don’t think through it.”

Things calmed down a little after that as the segment wound down, but it was totally hysterical to see Wayne Rogers lose it so badly with poor Michelle Fields, who caught the bad end when she was called names and insulted live on TV.

The Naivety of the American Leadership

ObamaAfter Islamic State’s beheading of journalist James Foley, President Barack Obama’s administration is making little headway in efforts to secure the release of other Americans held by the insurgent group in Syria, officials said.

The U.S. government has said it does not pay ransoms or negotiate with the Islamic State.

Washington has contacted about two dozen countries for help in freeing the three, but no foreign government appears to have influence over or even significant contact with IS, which has declared an Islamic caliphate in parts of Iraq and Syria.

“What we’ve found is that ISIS isn’t responsive” to outreach, said a senior U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity and using an alternate acronym for the group. ( “ISIS isn’t responsive” WHAT??!!   Talk about the clueless, brainless idiots running the country. What doesn’t the  American Administration understand? They are savages!! And you do not make deals, offer  outreach or trust them. You put a bullet in their fuckin’ heads!!  -BBJ )

Another administration official said Washington was working with other Western countries whose citizens are being held hostage, and with Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and others in the region thought by the United States to possibly have influence with the groups Al-Nusrah and IS.

The hostages’ fate received little public attention until Islamic State posted an online video on Aug. 19 showing Foley’s beheading. It now presents a frustrating challenge for Obama.

Islamic State “is far more difficult to deal with” than Iran or the militant group Hezbollah, which also took Americans captive, said Bruce Riedel, a former CIA and White House official now at the Brookings Institution think-tank. The group “wants to terrorize Americans, it’s not really interested in deals.”

Video Of American Steven Sotloff Getting Beheaded By ISIS

ABC, while not having the video, said that the video “purportedly” showed the beheading. The rest of the mainstream media is saying the same thing. Well now we know for a fact that Steven Sotloff, like James Foley, was beheaded.

Some complained about showing the video, but this is naive and is irresponsible by the U.S. government and the media alike in which they for decades watered down the real threat that Americans face when they pussyfoot with Islam. Perhaps the only way to help people understand why we post the video is to explain the hard lesson that needs to be sent to people who only learn the hard way, especially the liberal type who are sympathetic to Islamic causes and think that a cobra is simply just another fish. Here is Sotlof’s naive and typical western lack of comprehension about Muslim fundamentalists which cost him his life:

As was the case with Foley, Sotloff appeared to be sympathetic to the causes of opposition groups in Libya and Syria (sounds familiar?) as well as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Unfortunately, these American journalists like most liberals are often times far too willing to befriend Muslim fundamentalists who will turn on them.

Video purports to show beheading of U.S. journalist

Associated Press

  An Internet video purports to show the beheading of U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff by the Islamic State group.

  sotloff  Sotloff,  (pictured on left) who freelanced for Time and Foreign Policy magazines, had last been seen in Syrian in August 2013 until he appeared in a video released online last month by the Islamic State group that showed the beheading of fellow American journalist James Foley.

Dressed in an orange jumpsuit against the backdrop of an arid Syrian landscape, Sotloff was threatened in that video with death unless the U.S. stopped airstrikes on the group in Iraq.

In the video distributed Tuesday and entitled “A Second Message to America,” Sotloff appears in a similar jumpsuit before he is beheaded by an Islamic State fighter.

The Associated Press could not immediately verify the video’s authenticity. The SITE Intelligence Group, a U.S. terrorism watchdog, first reported about the video’s existence.

The fighter who beheads Sotloff in the video called it retribution for Obama’s continued airstrikes against the group in Iraq.

“I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State … despite our serious warnings,” the fighter said.

At the end of the video, he threatened to kill a third captive, a Briton, David Cathorne Haines.

Sotloff’s mother had pleaded for his release last week in a video directed at the Islamic State group.

Addressing the leader of the Islamic State group by name, Shirley Sotloff said in a video her son was “an innocent journalist” who shouldn’t pay for U.S. government actions in the Middle East over which he has no control.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he wasn’t immediately aware of the purported Sotloff video and wasn’t in a position to confirm its authenticity.

“This is something that the administration has obviously been watching very carefully,” Earnest said. “Our thoughts and prayers first and foremost are with Mr. Sotloff and Mr. Sotloff’s family and those who worked with him.”

A man who answered a phone listed in the name of Sotloff’s sister hung up when called by the AP.

Obama given detailed intelligence for a year about rise of ISIS

He told his crew, “Don’t tell me about any beheadings, ‘cuz I beheading for da golf course.”

President Obama was given detailed and specific intelligence about the rise of the Islamic State as part of his daily briefing for at least a year before the group seized large swaths of territory over the summer, a former Pentagon official told Fox News.

The official — who asked not to be identified because the President’s Daily Brief is considered the most authoritative, classified intelligence community product analyzing sensitive international events for the president — said the data was strong and “granular” in detail.

The source said a policymaker “could not come away with any other impression: This is getting bad.” 

Obama, unlike his predecessors who traditionally had the document briefed to them, is known to personally read the daily brief. The former Pentagon official, who has knowledge of the process, said Obama generally was not known to come back to the intelligence community with further requests for information based on the daily report.

The claims come as the Obama administration continues to launch airstrikes against Islamic State targets in northern Iraq and weighs whether to expand that campaign, particularly into Syria.

The president’s team has publicly suggested that the group only recently gained in strength, accounting for why Obama earlier this year dismissed such extremists as akin to a “JV” team.

But after suggestions that the administration may have been blindsided by the rise of ISIS, and that poor intelligence was to blame, the former Pentagon official said some of the intelligence was so good in the region, that when the president drew a red line on chemical weapons use in Syria in 2012, the information was “exquisite.”

The source said “[we] were ready to fire, on a moment’s notice, on a couple hundred targets,” but no order was given. In some cases, targets were tracked for a “long period of time” but then slipped away.

The source also claimed that there was a delay regarding the question of whether to act to save American journalist James Foley from Islamic State militants. The Sunday Times of London first reported that the delay was 30 days. The former Pentagon official described a White House that was hesitant and continually asking for “the intelligence to build up more.”

At the time, Fox News is told that a large, heavily armed compound, believed to be housing Foley, and other potential captives, was identified near the ISIS stronghold of Raqaa, Syria.

The Obama administration confirmed, after a video of Foley’s execution was posted online, that the U.S. ultimately launched a failed effort to rescue the hostage journalist.

Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said last month, regarding Foley’s capture and execution, that “we have done everything that we can possibly do to try to bring home our hostages.” 

He added: “It’s an incredibly difficult circumstance in a place like Syria, again, where you have such a violent conflict raging. But we’ve used all of our military, intelligence, diplomatic resources that we can bring to bear to try to pull a thread to find out where our hostages are; to try to rescue them when we saw an opportunity; to try to work with any country that might have any means of locating them. And tragically, we weren’t able to rescue Mr. Foley.” 

The National Security Council has not yet responded to a request for comment.

Saudis risk new Muslim division with proposal to move Mohamed’s tomb

I propose…the city dump!! Or bottom of the ocean? How about the artillery range for target practice?

One of Islam’s most revered holy sites – the tomb of the Prophet Mohamed – could be destroyed and his body removed to an anonymous grave under plans which threaten to spark discord across the Muslim world.

How about the sewer grounds? I’ll pay for shipping??

The controversial proposals are part of a consultation document by a leading Saudi academic which has been circulated among the supervisors of al-Masjid al-Nabawi mosque in Medina, where the remains of the Prophet are housed under the Green Dome, visited by millions of pilgrims and venerated as Islam’s second-holiest site. The formal custodian of the mosque is Saudi Arabia’s ageing monarch King Abdullah.

The plans, brought to light by another Saudi academic who has exposed and criticised the destruction of holy places and artefacts in Mecca – the holiest site in the Muslim world – call for the destruction of chambers around the Prophet’s grave which are particularly venerated by Shia Muslims.

In its latest efforts to demonize Israel, the Palestinian Authority is claiming that Israel’s bombing of a building in Gaza was like the Islamist terrorist organization Al-Qaeda’s airplane attack on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. PA TV produced a short 20-second video with a split screen showing one of the hijacked planes hitting the Twin Towers in 2001 opposite Israel’s bombing of a 12-story building in Gaza from which Hamas terrorists operated. PA TV News aired this video in several news reports in the past week.

As the buildings collapse, the words “Same Terror” appear on the screen.

What PA TV chose to hide from its viewers were the following facts:

  • The building in Gaza housed an operations room of Hamas terrorists and was therefore a military target.

The World Trade Center housed no terrorists and was a deliberate attack on civilians.

  • Before the attack in Gaza, Israel warned all the civilians in the building to evacuate. Nobody was killed in the attack.

There was no warning before the World Trade Center attack. Close to 3,000 innocent civilians were murdered.


Palestinian Media Watch has documented that PA policy is to demonize Israel  with many varied libels. Comparing Israel’s targeting of terrorists to the murders of 9/11 is another kind of demonization. Often the PA will cite a true event and use it as a starting point for its libels. In this case, Israel did destroy a building. But everything else is false. 

What Palestinians Think of the Holocaust: ‘Respect to Hitler’

Canadian documentary-maker reveals simultaneous trends denial and support for the holocaust in Ramallah.

What do Palestinians think about the Holocaust?

It’s a question filmmaker Corey Gil-Shuster asked to random people in Ramallah, the political capital of the Palestinian Authority.

The results were not encouraging.

Respondents typically gave one of three answers. Some did not actually know what it was, or had only a vague idea. The majority, however, either voiced the claim – popular in Arab countries – that the Nazi genocide was exaggerated by Jews for political purposes so that they could do the same to Arabs, or simply said they supported what Hitler had done because, as one smiling woman shared, “Jews are evil”.


One of the most remarkable aspects of the interviews was not so much those who expressed their support for the holocaust (“All respect to Hitler!” answered one man), but those who claimed they were experiencing precisely the same levels of brutality as Jews had faced under Nazi persecution, even as they shopped or sat freely smoking in cafes – a far cry from the deprivation and cruelty of European ghettos and concentration camps.

“So where are the concentration camps and the gas chambers?” an astonished Gil-Shuster asked one man, who said that Palestinians were suffering something “close to a holocaust” as he manned a stall brimming with sweets and drinks.

The video was part of a Youtube series called “Ask an Israeli, ask a Palestinian”, in which random Israelis and Palestinians are asked their opinions or feelings on a wide variety of topics.

As Islamic State fighters begin to blend in, defeating them no easy matter

Stop Islamic Genocide

BAQIRTA Iraq/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - After their lightning takeover in June, flag-waving Islamic State militants paraded through the captured Iraqi city of Mosul in looted U.S.-built Humvees, armored cars and pickup trucks mounted with heavy machine guns.

Today, many have ditched military-type vehicles that could make them easy targets of U.S. air strikes, and try to blend in with residents, say witnesses. While still terrifying, they are now a far more discreet force.

A Reuters examination of three weeks of U.S. air strikes reveals significant changes in the way the Islamic State operates since the U.S. joined the struggle against them, with fewer militants on the streets of Mosul the clearest sign. It is unclear how the Islamic State’s tactics will further change as a result of the reclaiming of the strategic Mosul Dam by Iraqi government and Kurdish forces or Sunday’s dramatic retaking of Amerli, where thousands had been cut off from food and water, but clearly battlefield strategies are involving on both sides.

The way the Islamic State is adapting shows the scale of problems ahead for President Barack Obama, the Pentagon and U.S.-backed Iraqi and Kurdish forces, as they struggle to reclaim ground from the Sunni militants, who have seized a third of both Iraq and Syria, and want to establish a jihadist hub in the heart of the Arab world.

After forging working arrangements with other armed Sunni groups and tribes angry at the Shi’ite Islamist-dominated central government in Baghdad, the Islamic State is now the most powerful force in parts of northern and western Iraq, with its ranks ranging from 8,000 to 20,000 fighters, according to Iraqi government estimates.

Large areas are under control of the radical offshoot of al Qaeda, and will be difficult to wrest away from them if Iraq’s Shi’ite political leaders fail to appease disgruntled Sunnis, many of whom have embraced Islamic State after what they describe as years of discrimination and persecution.

Ousting the jihadists altogether will likely require a two-pronged approach, including ground combat in Iraq carried out by Iraqi security forces, Sunni tribesmen and ethnic Kurdish peshmerga fighters, perhaps with guidance by U.S. Special Operations Forces and American advisers, say Iraqi security officials and experts.

Defeating them would almost certainly require air strikes on Islamic State strongholds in neighboring Syria that could be risky, including the possibility of high civilian casualties given patchy American intelligence on the ground.

“To retake areas requires more than airstrikes. It requires specially trained fighters and the support of the population in these areas,” said Ali Al-Haidari, an Iraqi security expert and former officer in the Iraqi military.

Washington needs to decide whether it wants to halt and contain Islamic State or wipe it out entirely, said Hayat Alvi, professor of Middle East studies at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island.”If they really want to destroy the Islamic State and stop them being a threat, they are going to have to get a lot more committed,”
