Fox Business

debate

John Stossel, the libertarian host on the Fox Business Network, has set up his own two-hour debate among the leading candidates of the Libertarian Party.

Don’t know who those candidates are? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

The three candidates that will appear tonight at 9 Eastern are former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, former producer for Fox News, Austin Petersen, and anti-virus creator, John McAfee.

Gary, the pot-smoking, mountain climbing Republican turned Libertarian was the party’s nominee in 2012.

Austin Petersen is just over the line for qualifying to be president since he turned 35 this year. Petersen has been an activist and worked for the Libertarian Party before joining Judge Napolitano as his producer on Fox.

As for John McAfee, he was the creator of McAfee anti-virus software that he sold to live a life of relaxation in Belize. That didn’t turn out as planned as he was accused of murdering his neighbor and had to flee the country. Now cleared of legal issues, McAfee has turned to politics. McAfee first tried to run under the banner of the “Cyber Party” which didn’t work out so well as they’re not a real party, so he switch over to the Libertarian Party to take advantage of their access to the ballot.

There are at least 15 candidates seeking the presidential nomination from the Libertarian Party.

Most of those candidates are straight up nuts. One, Derrick Michael Reid, features a photo of himself on his campaign website dressed in some weird, fabricated uniform.

Another candidate, Darryl Perry, refused to file his candidacy with the FEC and, to avoid doing so, only accepts donations of “crypto-currency.”

Stossel, understanding that third-party candidates rarely get any attention, was kind enough to host the debate on his show . . . but given the candidates, it’s sure to be entertaining.

If you choose to watch, take a guess of which candidate bragged of getting “pyramid piles of p**sy” during a recent radio interview.

Move over, Donald Trump: a Fox News contributor has officially uttered the most hilarious, inappropriate, “we-were-all-thinking-it” quote of the election cycle.

Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a regular Fox News contributor, appeared on Stuart Varney’s Fox Business show—and he ramped up his criticism of Obama’s national security policy by calling him a p*ssy on national television:

“Mr. President, we’re not afraid! We’re angry! We’re pissed off! We’re furious!” Peters said.

“We want you to react. We want you to do something. You’re afraid! I mean, this guy is such a total pussy, it’s stunning! We, the American people, who he does not know in any intimate sort of manner, we want action. We want action against Islamic State.”

“This is a president who doesn’t want to hurt our enemies,” Peters continued. “This is a president who cares more about thugs in Guantanamo or thugs in Ferguson, Missouri, than he does about law-abiding American citizens and their right to live in safety and peace.”

“This is a president who doesn’t want to hurt our enemies,” Peters said. “This is a president who cares more about thugs in Guantanamo or thugs in Ferguson, Missouri, than he does about law-abiding American citizens and their right to live in safety and peace.”

Varney, remembering that this was a family show, tried to interject a few times. Finally, he was able to get a word in: “I can tell you are super angry, and I asked you what your reaction was, but I’ve got to call you… you can’t use language like that on the program, okay?” Varney said.

Peters replied, “I’m sorry.” He later added, “My choice of words was incorrect, but my sentiment, I think, is shared by many.”

Despite the millions of Americans who undoubtedly found his comments amazing, Fox News brass were less than thrilled.

“Earlier today, Fox contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air,” said Fox’s senior executive vice president Bill Shine, mentioning both Peters’ comments as well as another contributor, Stacey Dash, who claimed Obama “didn’t give a sh*t” about terrorism just hours later.

“Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks.”
