Ralph Peters Quits FOX In A Huff

DC: Ralph Peters abruptly quit his job as a Fox News strategic analyst on Tuesday. Instead of leaving quietly, the retired Army lieutenant colonel wrote a scathing letter blasting the Trump administration and his former employer for “assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers.”

“Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration,” wrote Peters in a letter to his former colleagues at the network, obtained and published by BuzzFeed.

“Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed,” Peters wrote before launching into an attack on the network’s prime-time hosts.

“When prime-time hosts–who have never served our country in any capacity–dismiss facts and empirical reality to launch profoundly dishonest assaults on the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the intelligence community (in which I served) and, not least, a model public servant and genuine war hero such as Robert Mueller–all the while scaremongering with lurid warnings of ‘deep-state’ machinations– I cannot be part of the same organization, even at a remove. To me, Fox News is now wittingly harming our system of government for profit,” wrote the former Fox News contributor.  more here

  1. Peters is another McShitStain … he never saw any international situation that couldn’t be solved by anything but invasion by the US

    You’ve got your head up your butt, there, Colonel. Trump is assaulting the assaulters of our constitutional order and the rule of law, and he’s pointing out that the fear Americans experience isn’t paranoia but rather the rational fear that results from discovering that bad people are doing us harm and have been for a long time.

  3. I’ve noticed him going off the rails ever since Trump was elected.

    Don’t let the door hit you where the Good Lord split you!

  4. I don’t know what’s in the water, air or wherever but the Chicoms, Iranians, Russians or George Soros himself must be having an undesirable result on Americans everywhere.

    If we don’t start taking these assholes out now…..we’re just gonna have a lot more assholes to shoot in the future.

  5. Guess he just received his Deep State Reservist Activation orders.
    Now he’s off to join MSNBC where he will prove himself a faithful Comrade serving the greater good. Lean forward!

    Too bad he won’t take Shep Smith, Williams, Rivera and the rest of Fox’s Leftists with him as he goes.

    And what is it with these pearl clutching Manginas and writing outraged goodbye letters from their fainting couches?

    And Mueller’s now a Vietnam “war hero”????
    They must have lowered the bar retroactively.

    Maybe Mueller is a “hero” the way Kerry and McCain were “heroes”.

    These people disgrace the Uniform they never deserved to wear.

  6. First off, i never served in the military; never drafted, never enlisted, although I have adult children who are active military. I have great respect for those who volunteered their service. Having said that, Ralph Peters, like a lot of former military has a blind spot for those who served; they are reluctant to criticize them, and have little respect for the opinions of those who didn’t serve.

  7. Isn’t a Huff a small English sports car? I’m pretty sure I used to know a guy who owned one.
    He was always leaving in it.

    “If you don’t like it you can leave in a huff.
    If that’s too soon you can leave in a minute and a huff.”

  9. Any “conservative” still unable to recognize President Trump is far superior to having Hillary in office is a fake.

  10. Oh my, someone got the skeleton-in-his-closet’s-finger-in-the-mail-signal to go ballistic, because something big is about to happen.

    Think: All the cockroach scurrying by the left, always heightens, just before a piece of them is about to be exposed.

    The dumbass leftist are shrilly screaming and making blustering threats about Mueller, which sure makes me wonder.

    It’s like they are daring Trump to fire Mueller, real soon. My understanding is that he can’t, plus he has denied it almost as often as he has chided CNN or HRC.

    I’m suspecting the FBI IG may have something rotten about to be released.

  11. If you spend 20+ years in the Army starting as an O-1 and you never get past O-4, it usually means you’re kind of a loser.

  12. Ralph like Johnny has been a progressive GWB lackey for 18 years. So, like Johnny, when GWB tells him to defame Don, he tries to defame Don. Like all “NeoCons” he never was , and never will be, a conservative! He, like Johnny, is a “tax + spend” leftist!

    If only all the leftist GWB lackeys were out at Fox; but there are still a lot of leftist GOPe’s there!

  13. They give O-5s by law up to 30 and force retire them. Pieces of shit.

    It means you’ve never been selected for a major command.

  14. @TheMule and Reboot

    I was in the Army for 20 years as a nurse and I never made it past 0-5–well now I know I am a loser and a piece of shit. Thanks for the early morning boost. Here I was going along being so proud for what I had done for my country. Guess you told me.

  15. @Corky – first off, thanks for your service. Twenty years is no small feat, so don’t let your day start on a sour note. You SHOULD be proud! And secondly, I don’t comment here nearly as much as I used to, but I still visit regularly, and you are one of the people that I make a point to read when I see you’ve commented on something.

  16. Just like a starry-eyed teenager, willing to do anything for a bit part in an X-men movie, it sounds like this Peters guy is auditioning for a job at CNN.

  17. Corky, not only thank you for your service, but being a nurse, by itself, is a life of giving. Thank you for being so awesome. The world is better for it.

  18. Dadof4–thank you but it was what I always wanted and I found it to be a true blessing for me. I am NOT a fan of Ralph Peters or the things he said but to make assumptions about his service is strange. My first 4 years in the Army were spent in college because that is how my scholarship was, I was an E-3 but a college student. I graduated with 4 years of service and as a 1LT. Mine was an extremely unusual but it was called the WRAIN program (Walter Reed Army Institute of Nursing). Anyway, my point are blanket assumptions are always fallible. I also, as a loser, managed to get a Masters and become a nurse practitioner! My feelings are just fine and I appreciate your kind words and Aunt Liz’s too.

  19. I like Ralph.
    Good writer and intelligent analyst.

    I don’t understand his blind devotion to the Forces of Evil which infest our Gov’t. Mueller has clearly overstepped whatever job was assigned to him, the DoJ and FBI have clearly corrupted the investigations into HRC’s traitorous shenanigans, and how can he conclude that Trump’s administration is “destructive and ethically ruinous?”

    Need a little background, here, Ralph – kind of flesh it out.

    Unless he’s off his meds, I think somebody got to him.

    izlamo delenda est …

  20. He always sounded like he was in a panic. Never a big fan.
    He must have gotten an offer from someone else for more money if he could get out of his contract.
    If we see him on another news outlet or working for Mueller, we’ll know.

  21. Take your rightful place in the tenor section of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, you fruitcake.

    Yes, I’m shallow (and I don’t swallow).

  22. John Carlson has the worthless son-of-a-bitch on his program on 570 KVI quite frequently. Both KVI and KTTH (the home of Medved) are mouthpieces for the eastside (Bellevue) Republicans. i.e. the crony capitalist Republican establishment here in Washington.

    We had the King County Democrat machine steal a gubernatorial election right in broad daylight and between the State Republican Party, these radio stations and/or their personnel at the time (who move back and forth between the deep state, Party positions and the radio) and the Secretary of State another Establishment Republican we were sold out.

    Dino Rossi, he isn’t a fighter, he is a fop and therefore talk of him as the future of the Republican Party in Washington leves me underwhelmed.

    This Ralph Peters cocksucker is a perfect face to put on the establishment Republicans around here.

  23. It all started when Tucker reamed him a new one after Peters call him a Nazi apologist.
    Adios MF’er!
