Don’t believe the FakeNews…CNN’s Acosta got press pass back based on due process, not free press argument

FakeNews may crow about ‘restoration of a free press’ with this ruling that gave Acosta his press pass back temporarily, but it was the due-process Fifth amendment, not the free-speech First amendment, that resulted in the favorable ruling…regardless of hype.

The Washington Times: “A federal judge ordered the White House to restore CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s press pass, ruling Friday that President Trump and his aides didn’t give Mr. Acosta enough of a chance to explain himself or contest the revocation.”

According to the Times “Judge Kelly did not rule on the big First Amendment questions CNN raised, instead limiting his decision to whether the White House had acted arbitrarily in denying Mr. Acosta a thing of value — in this case, the press pass that CNN says is crucial to him doing his job.” (bold, underline emphasis added)

While many try to portray this as the President overstepping his bounds, it was clearly a correct move on his part to condemn Acosta, and highlight such uncouth behavior.

(Acosta did physically resist a female intern’s attempt to take the mic, acting in a rude and boorish manner, using the edge of his wrist and forearm to push her arm down.)

Anyway, it’s an opportunity to lay out clear rules on press decorum moving forward.

We’re not sure how Acosta could ‘explain himself’ in a way to justify his actions before getting his press pass revoked, but we have a hint for the President, going forward:

A restored press pass doesn’t mean Acosta should get his front-row seating back…

…and doesn’t mean he gets an opportunity for questions during press briefings.

The punk’s an actor, not a journalist – why give him camera time?

For that matter, why televise WH press briefings at all? It just feeds narcissism.

Double down on Russia-collusion probe, order it EXPANDED…to include proven Democrat malfeasance

For 2 years, Democrats have used a ‘stop Trump from firing Mueller’ meme to fire up the Left, rake in cash from suckers, and falsely claim obstruction where there’s none.

It’s time to shut down the Left’s faux angst over Mueller’s employment concerns, and time to expose the collusion hoax for what it is…an attempt to delegitimize Pres. Trump.

Effective immediately, President Trump should call for an extended Russia-collusion probe, directing acting Attorney General Whitaker to add Democrat malfeasance to the investigation, reviewing data that Mueller has gathered to date on that side issue.

If Mueller’s probe has ignored the Democrat chicanery, that’s a HUGE indication there’s a partisan agenda in play…and the failure should be denounced in no uncertain terms.

Rosenstein’s instructions to Mueller were to “…conduct the investigation…including…(ii)  any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and (iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).” (emphasis added)

Certainly, the discovery that a Democrat hoax-dossier was used for FISA warrants, and the revelation that Clinton’s campaign and DNC paid cut-out lawyers to fund the dossier which was created by a Brit (Steele) using unsubstantiated foreign sources qualifies.

There’s no evidence Pres. Trump colluded…but PROVEN evidence Democrats did.

End the charade…bring the REAL malefactors on stage.

Then we’ll see how long Democrats and their media masters want this probe prolonged.

‘Speaking Truth To Power’ deceit: Knowing what they do & STOPPING what they do are 2 different things

We repeat…

Failing to address important key factors when exposing the Left’s chicanery is an ongoing problem for conservative media, especially if factors are singularly crucial to revealing the fundamental cause for their deceit…typically being money, and power.

On talk-radio this morning, a Liberal host spoke of porn-lawyer Avenatti’s latest cameo (involving accusations of domestic violence), bemoaning the ‘porn-lawyer’ descriptive.

He referred to the Stormy Daniels/anti-Kavanaugh-accusers lawyer as a ‘hero, speaking truth to power’ while his conservative (female) co-host sat, not challenging that claim.

She was silent when the Lib host defended CNN’s Jim Acosta ‘speaking truth to power as he badgered the President over the Russia collusion hoax, then was banned.

There’s not been one iota of proof on the Kavanaugh accusations or collusion issue.

What she should have challenged her co-host on was that there’s a huge difference between speaking ‘truth’ to power…and speaking UNFOUNDED allegations to power.

The ‘singularly crucial’ factor here is that anti-Kavanaugh accusations, and Russia-collusion accusations, were…have been…and continue to be…totally unfounded.

It’s astounding that conservative media allow every lying premise to go unchallenged.

Why the silence?

DON’T GIVE THEM AN INCH.

Climate Change hoax: Knowing what they do & STOPPING what they do are 2 different things

We repeat…

Failing to address important key factors when exposing the Left’s chicanery is an ongoing problem for conservative media, especially if factors are singularly crucial to revealing the fundamental cause for their deceit…typically being money, and power.

The climate change hoax is a typical example.

Investor’s Business Daily reports on the bogus Paris Climate Accord… “Climate Hoax: Not A Single G-20 Country Is Close To Hitting CO2 Emission Targets”…but…

…never linked the most ‘singularly crucial’ factor to the hoax….

…MONEY.

Those pushing the climate-change fraud are heavily invested in alternate energy and the billions of dollars/yuan/euros/whatever in subsidies derived from that hoax.

Why doesn’t respected conservative media like IBD mention that…every time?

Election Fraud: Knowing what they do & STOPPING what they do are 2 different things

Failing to address important key factors when exposing the Left’s chicanery is an ongoing problem for conservative media, especially if factors are singularly crucial to revealing the fundamental cause for their deceit…typically being money, and power.

Take the ongoing Election Deadline issues in Florida, for instance. Those deadlines are established for a reason, a primary one being to minimize opportunities for vote fraud.

But, in Democrat-controlled counties that (amazingly?) ‘can’t’ meet deadlines all other counties meet, is it any wonder that Democrat-appointed judges extend deadlines, where (amazingly?) more ‘uncounted’ Democrat votes are then suddenly discovered?

Did we mention the necessity to meet deadlines were Democrat controlled? Why can’t the conservative voices make that cynical observation when judiciary rulings are noted?

Did we mention all other counties didn’t seem to have a problem meeting deadlines?

Yes, all votes should be counted – but ensuring that it happens is on the shoulders of those who control the voting process within that county by utilizing resources properly.

How hard is it to deduce ‘suddenly discovered’ ballot boxes are orchestrated? It’s from the pages of a Democrat playbook…CREATE a crisis, then apply self-serving solutions.

The lax procedures and incompetent resources were totally under Democrat control.

The ‘singularly crucial’ factor here: DEMOCRATS created this ‘crisis’ to EXPLOIT it.

The choice? Honor deadlines, or let Democrats manipulate the process…again.

Look at it this way – when your kid breaks the liquor cabinet lock…

…the solution is not to let them DRINK the liquor.

If the GOP won’t fight election theft, what will they fight?

PJMedia.com: “Why Democrats Would Dare to Steal Elections in Plain Sight”

There’s only one way to fight this election thievery – Rule of Law.

Invoke it…or run for the hills, because Democrats will just keep on judge-shopping for the opportunity to invoke ‘rule-of-lawyer’ whenever they lose, as they’re doing now.

Election laws are legislated and passed by representatives of the people, and should not be subjected to indiscriminate revision by ideological whim for political expedience.

Such an act, by definition, serves to represent only those who benefit in the moment, and this ‘moving the goal posts’ activity means the people will never be represented.

Americans are tired of the uncertainty such activities breed, and angered as well. The constant effort to legislate by judicial fiat is undermining our societal structure.

(Side Issue…Ever notice there’s only ‘settled’ law when Democrats say it is?)

Argue the merits of existing law if you will…but legislatures of the people must invoke the required changes when necessary – otherwise, we’re no longer a Republic.

Sorry, liberals…one uncivil ‘journalist’ does not constitute a ‘press’

As noted in a previous blog, CNN was not banned from the WH press briefings, just Jim Acosta…and a thorough search of the Constitution doesn’t mention his name.

Freedom of the press does not translate into freedom of Acosta to violate briefing rules.

Or, could it be CNN/Acosta forget there are rules of conduct for the press corps?

Maybe this would be a good time to remind CNN the White House doesn’t need to hold press briefings at all, doesn’t need to take questions, and doesn’t need to televise them.

Whether Acosta used a hand or forearm on the female intern is beside the point…the facts are indisputable when viewing the event: he physically resisted her taking the mic.

Pretty sure that type of behavior is unacceptable by WH press corps rules.

(Funny thing though…the liberal search sites don’t seem to want to let those rules be found/seen. A Google search yields results of everything except the actual rules.)

BlueCollar suggests the White House publish said rules for all to see.

Bottom line?

When a ‘journalist’ makes himself the focus, he’s no longer a journalist…

…he’s an ACTOR.

Acosta, with CNN a willing abettor, continues to try to make HIM the story.

We reiterate: CNN and Acosta need to apologize to the intern, the President, and the press corps, before Mr. Trump considers whether to re-instate Acosta’s privileges.

CNN’s actions, on full display, demonstrate why the media is loathed by Americans.

Freedom of the press should not be conflated with freedom of access.
