Ruling that CNN’s Jim Acosta Has Right
to Disrupt White House Pressers

Gateway Pundit, by Jim Hoft

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/16/2018 12:10:36 PM

Disgraceful.On Friday morning a federal judge ruled that the Trump White House must restore jackass Jim Acosta’s hard press pass.This is unbelievable. (Snip) (Tweet) The Trump White House later released a statement on the court’s ruling. According to the White House: “The court made clear that there is no absolute First Amendment right to access the White House.” The judge ruled Acosta has a right to disrupt the press conferences and swipe at young female interns.

The solution to the problem is for Sara Sanders not to direct any questions to Acosta and completely ignore him.

Is the judge blind? Acosta´s blocking move to prevent the intern from taking the mic was an assault on her. She was doing her job. Acosta´s hostility does not have to be dealt with on a daily basis. The judge would find an attorney in contempt if he behaved that way in his courtroom.

Must be an Obama appointed judge. I say go to the next higher court.

Other option is to say that Acosta can come back but CNN can send someone else in his place. This is a time to stand your ground on principle.

This judge needs to be thoroughly humiliated. The judge is reacting to the way the CNN lawsuit was written. They didn´t include the cause of the Acosta hard pass loss in their suit. That alone tells me they know exactly what Acosta did wrong that cost him his hard pass. So Trump needs to make sure the judge sees the video again when he refuses to let Acosta come back.

Where are all the New Judges recently appointed to the Courts? Why is it that only JUDGES favorable to Democrats are the ones to make the decisions? Go to another court, one favorable to Trump. Don´t just accept this verdict, appeal it. We´re tired of Judges running this country! Get busy and appoint more and more until we´ve packed the Courts so Liberals can´t always win!

This shouldn´t happen but I guarantee you the Trump administration isn´t upset because this played right into its hands to demonstrate that more judges need to be appointed by Trump to the lower courts. Actually it´s good for Trump because it plays to his base, and I think it will be appealed twice and the Supreme Court is likely to go 7-2 in favor of the administration (Ginsburg and Sotomayor dissenting, possibly Breyer - I don´t think Kagan would dissent). But CNN is delighted too. I´m convinced the press secretly loves Trump because it doesn´t have to work as hard to report news when it can make things up about Trump. But he is in the unique position of understanding mass media even better than mass media understands itself. That´s why he kicked Acosta out in the first place.

I am dismayed at this stupid judge and his stupid ruling. If Acosta is not called upon, will he go back to court, and will the judge set up the number of questions he be allowed to ask?
Is this the time for DJT to simply ignore the judge??
The judge has wiped his butt with the separation of powers clause in the U.S. constitution.

A Trump appointed judge. How disappointing is that. The Judge is a coward, afraid of the press and what they will say or investigate about him.

Corruptocrats winning on all levels. Stolen elections galore, Demonrats getting a pass on all their criminality and corruption at all levels of life in America.

Our Republic continues to swirl around the drain thanks to useless cowards like this judge.

Ignoring the judge´s order is not a good idea, no matter how much disagreed with. Not calling on Acosta sounds like a possible reasonable solution, at least until another leftie-journo is called on who states their question time is yielded to Acosta...or until Acosta lives up to his reputation and makes a stink by yelling over others´ questions or the responses, or whatever other temper tantrum pops into this overgrown 5-year-old´s head.

My take, stop the press conferences, absolutely nothing in any way, shape or form, and in the meantime craft some ironclad rules for behavior, hand ´em out or tell ´em to come to the WH gate & get them. Also set up another smaller room away from the WH for small press briefings; no more lefties roaming the WH itself. Once the rules are done, give the journos a couple of weeks to bray/bellyache themselves hoarse (you know they will, no matter what the rules are). Then schedule one presss conference with PJT, strictly adhering by whatever the rules say, taking no guff or crap from any of ´em.

Fine that his pass was reinstated. Follow the ruling of law.
There is nowhere or no place that states there must be press briefings.
Cancel them all, give printed handouts and be done with it.
A press pass means (I think) they can enter for press reasons. If handouts are given they can be distributed at the gate.
These are my thoughts. Not gonna go anywhere, but this is what I think.

Seems to me the press always moaned and groaned because their “adored one” Obama didn’t have many press meetings. His were very rare. So I suggest limit press meetings to once a month or less. Why don’t colleagues take the lead and shut down Acosta? I read where many are sick of his antics along with the public.

Are there no Rules of Decorum in the Press Room? If there aren´t, there should be. If you violate the Rules, you are removed from the Press Room and placed in another room where you can watch the Press Conference on closed circuit TV.

No "journalist" has the right to be abusive, belligerent, or disrespectful to the Press Secretary, the President, or any other member of Administration.

If all else fails, force the WH Press to submit their questions beforehand (like they do for Hillary) and wait for the answers in a written statement.

Fine. This might be considered:

Start the press conferences as usual. If Acosta is in the building then immediately announce today´s conference is cancelled. Add that it will be rescheduled really super soon.

I personally regard the Judges´s decision as completely wrong in law. But what do I know?

And who says laws count in federal courts anyway?

For all who are saying to just not call on Acosta, remember, he was not called on to continue his diatribe and that was the cru of the matter. He wouldn´t give up the mic. So, what makes you think he will just sit there and not interrupt because he wasn´t called on. That little black -itch April Ryan doesn´t wait to be called on.

The headline is very seriously misleading.

The judge ruled no such thing. He rule that he would stay the "harm" being done to the plaintiff until a proper hearing could decide the case on the issues.

If the actual ruling goes against the WH, which seems likely, since there is a precedent in that direction, the WH needs to create a set of rules, get each press pass person to sign an agreement to abide by them, and acknowledge that they WILL lose the pass for X time period for first offense, and Y time period for second, yada, yada, yada.

This will be an official ´process´, and is not arbitrary. Acosta and Ryan will either comply or get pass pulled, and it will pass court muster as due process, not be reversed.

In order to have a Due Process claim, one must have a property interest to protect. Kinda hard to see what Acosta´s property interest is in this matter, but I´m not a "Federal Judge."

The Lone Cypress clinging to a granite promontory above the surf on California’s Monterey Peninsula has survived arsonists’ fires, vandal’s paint, drought and relentless winds along the famously scenic 17-Mile Drive edging the Pebble Beach Resorts. But on Thursday, the most photographed tree in North America was lashed by a brutal Pacific storm that knocked off one of its largest branches, significantly altering the appearance of the tree that has been a marketing tool and a registered trademark of the Pebble Beach Co. since 1919. Until now, the tree, believed to be more than 250 years old, had posed for

President Trump has been turned down by Democrats for a sensible border barrier, so he will declare a national emergency in accordance with a law Congress passed in 1976. Somehow, following a law Congress passed gets Trump labeled as a dictator.

In mid-January, a federal judge blocked an additional question to the survey that wants to ask whether the participant is a U.S. citizen. The Supreme Court promised yesterday to hear the case quickly so it is resolved before the 2020 Census. The Census is done every ten years so that Congress knows how to regulate federal money and affects the amount of representation each district gets. The number of electoral votes is also determined by the Census. Liberal leaders have long been counting illegals in the Census to inflate representation, then electing representatives who declare their area a "sanctuary" for

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to

Andrew McCabe on Friday denied that he knew of an effort to oust President Trump using the 25th Amendment, saying he never had “any extended discussions” about the matter and was unaware of such talks. “At no time did Mr. McCabe participate in any extended discussions about the use of the 25th Amendment, nor is he aware of any such discussions,” his spokeswoman, Melissa Schwartz, said in a statement on Twitter, adding that his remarks about the issue were taken out of context. She said McCabe “was present and participated in a discussion that included a comment by Deputy Attorney

Move over, Speaker Pelosi, and make room for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio as Democrats waking up to the disaster the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is inflicting on the Democratic Party. She is no longer just a potential threat to their schemes and operating principles, she has taken a wrecking ball to them. Trust me: they desperately want to be rid of her but, due to her media presence and popularity with the young and ignorant, cannot visibly stick the shiv in her back.
