EXCLUSIVE: Mike Rogers Will Join FOX News; Prediction: Radio Show Will Fail; Dull, Moderate Boehnerite

By Debbie Schlussel

DebbieSchlussel.com has exclusively learned that Congressman Mike Rogers, Chairman of the powerful House Intelligence Committee, will join FOX News as a contributor. He has been in talks with the network and will make the announcement after the November elections. DebbieSchlussel.com has also learned that Rogers’ deal with FOX News will be in the six figures.

Rogers, who announced earlier this year that he would not seek re-election, also announced that he would begin a nationally syndicated radio and that the show would be syndicated by Cumulus. Like Cumulus’ other attempt at a nationally syndicated show starring the other dull faux-conservative Mike, Mike Huckabee, I predict Mike Rogers’ show will be a failure. That’s because Rogers is dull, boring, and doesn’t have a sense of humor. He is the opposite of entertaining, and his radio show will quietly be dumped after a year or two, as cumulus did with Hucksterbee. Rogers will also fail because he’s just not much of a conservative. He’s a Boehnerite, and that’s not what succeeds in talk radio. Just ask Bill O’Reilly.

While Rogers has made a career of TV grandstanding and posing as tough on national security issues, he’s is actually soft on most national security matters and a moderate. He’s a close friend of John Boehner, who shares Boehner’s attitude on many issues, including support for amnesty, er . . . “comprehensive immigration reform,” for illegal aliens. (I’ll bet Rogers changes his tune in an attempt to succeed on talk radio, but when it counted he was for open borders.) Boehner is the one who picked Rogers for the Intelligence Committee position. And, don’t forget, that Rogers publicly denounced Michele Bachmann in 2012, when she wrote a letter to the State Department rightfully questioning the strong Muslim Brotherhood presence there under Hillary Clinton, particularly and including the presence of Hillary right-hand chick Huma Abedin. Rogers was in interesting company–Boehner, John McCain, Marco Rubio, etc.–as he joined the chorus of those attacking Bachmann for raising questions about extremist Muslims in Obama’s State and Homeland Security Departments.












And Rogers, despite pretending to care about national security, really hasn’t done a thing to make America safer, as I’ve repeatedly noted in depth on this site. Talk is cheap. And action is foreign to Mike Rogers. As I’ve previously reported here, Rogers, a former FBI agent, was the FBI’s go-to-guy on more funding. But when I and several pro-American Lebanese Christians confronted Rogers on the FBI’s repeated refusal to hire Christian and Sephardic Jewish Arabic translators and agents (the agency continues to discriminate against the Christians and Jews and hire and rely strictly on extremist Muslim translators–who’ve repeatedly been caught doing phony translations and tipping off the enemy), Rogers balked. After promising to do something about it, he never did. Like I said, he loves the TV cameras, but he’s all talk, zero action when it comes to America’s national security.

Rogers is a completely useless tool, who pretends to fight terrorism and rants on “60 Minutes” about it while ogling Lara Logan, but actually does everything to enable Islamic terrorism supporters to reach all levels of government. He’s just a complete phony who pretends to be a conservative. He’s an Islamo-panderer as his acquiescence in the attack on Michele Bachmann starkly demonstrated, and I challenge anyone to show me one thing Mike Rogers has ever done to make the country safer from Islamic terrorists.

And even if Mike Rogers were actually good on national security (he isn’t), the guy is a one-trick pony. He’s got no other issues on which he’s strong or has anything interesting or entertaining to say. That equals certain failure for his radio show, even if he has the FOX News gig (so did Hucksterbee, and his radio show failed anyway). The guy’s most “interesting” and “productive” move in Congress was his waste of tax money to put out incredibly silly press releases and get media coverage for a wrist injury he sustained while rough-housing with his teen son.

Good luck with that.

You can look forward to seeing Mike Rogers on FOX News soon. I won’t. And his short-lived, not-yet-here radio show will see the same fate as the Sephardic Jews and Maronite Christian Arabs seeking to become FBI Arabic translators (who didn’t get Mike Rogers’ promised help): total failure.

With the addition of Mike Rogers, maybe FOX News’ tag line would be best modified to “Phony and Balanced.” Or “We Grandstand, You Decide.”

Mike Rogers is a dud. He is simply trying to cash in on having been in Congress.

What has happened to America since 9/11? Why are there so many RINOs? Are they afraid of muslim retribution?

    I heard the most succinct explanation for what has happened to America since 911 a little while ago.
    It goes something like this.
    Many Americans want to pretend that they are living the world as it was before 911 but as every grown up knows you can never go back home.

Really shows pandering to Islam by hiring him. Michele Bachmann will not be in Congress either after this term. If they really wanted to tell it like it is in National Security, they could have hired her, more likely than not.

FOX seems to be taking a dive towards the bland and mediocre these days.
Probably partly a reaction to “liberal” criticisms of their content as well as financial directives from the consultants I guess.

Anybody who thinks that “liberal” criticisms are constructive is constructing their own mausoleum.

Boehner specialises in that department.

keylog on June 5, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Boehner has taken so much wet stuff on board his eyes leak.

It’s time for a third party in this country. The Democrats are traitors. The Republicans at best are useless. I think it’s time for the Tea Party to disengage from the Republicans and go for it on their own.

Rogers is the king of bullshitters, always on Fox, saying he will get to the bottom of the many investigations, and now he leaves and gets a job on Fox and radio, how can he show his face and how can Fox hire this clown, Also Senator Issa is the same; BS Fox is getting more Liberal, I would like to see just one all Conservative station.

How to make America safe?
Stop all immigration of Muslims.
Deport or jail everyone that complains about it.

Destroy Iran completely. Rinse and repeat to anyone else that complains about it.

Oh yeah almost forgot. Build a big wall around Dearbornistan and then fill it full of water.

Canadian Steve on June 7, 2014 at 10:32 pm

While you are at it, Line up every member of CAIR and shoot them…
