Jim Acosta is smug, and no
court ruling changes that

Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/17/2018 5:01:44 AM

So CNN’s Jim Acosta scored some court points with a ruling that orders the White House to give back his press pass, at least for the time being. But he still presents as a smug elitist. He presented as an out-of-touch elitist the day he jerked away from the arm of the reaching White House intern — the day he refused to cede the microphone and cede the floor and cede his time to the many other journalists who were patiently waiting to pose questions to the president. But post-ruling, caught on camera walking from the courthouse,

Fine, let the jerk in. No law says you have to call on him. There are dozens of journalists and they all can´t ask questions. If he yells out of turn, ignore him. Let the press eat its own.

Sorry, but I´m still fuming at the court ruling. In exactly which penumbra of the Constitution did it find that the President must allow an insufferable jerk to not only attend a press conference but also control the microphone?

Acosta was never banned, never shut out. He lost his hard pass, the pass that allows the bearer free access to the WH. It meant that he had to get a new Secret Service pass and an escort every time he went to the WH. This was explained early on.

I wonder if the judge knew exactly what had happened?

His reprieve is for only 14 days. The judge had to follow a previous precedent. His problem was that Acosta had not been allowed the correct procedure for taking his SS pass. The judge ruled on the process for removing the pass, not the merit of its having been taken.

PDJT has now begun the institution of new rules for the WH press corps. How long will it be until smug Acosta missteps again (it’s in his smug DNA) and is ousted with all the legal due process that was apparently missing this time? PDJT has also publicly stated that another such display of rudeness and inappropriate activity will simply cause him to leave any press conference. As he wisely says, how will the rest of the press corps feel about what their colleague, with his bad behavior, has cost them?

The judge in this ruling might base this on Acosta´a ´freedom of speech´ our freedoms and the President´s freedom is ignored, meaning we don´t have to listen to his free speech.
Acosta might bask in the ruling but we don´t have to listen to him same as the President.
Why is this jerk daily news concerning the White House and our government´s operation.
This is like opening your front door and inviting a mugger inside. You just don´t do it. The President should give them all fair warning that one impolite outburst from anyone and no more press conferences will take place they all get their passes revoked.

Take the time to read what the judge actually said in almost 20 pages! You´ll quickly see why Trump isn´t appealing.

Basically, there NEVER were any written rules on behavior for White House corespondents. They always did whatever they jolly-well wanted. Unfettered. Amazing.

Thus, the judge says, "Accost-her" can´t be excluded from the play pen because Trump´s people were being arbitrary. Why? Because they were applying a rule to only him that was not written down! Therefore, "Accost-her" (according to the judge) supposedly didn´t realize he was breaking any "rules" .... because there weren´t any. Ever.

Well guess what? There will be rules now ... lots of them ... and they will be written down and given to everyone. Break the rules and now you can be punished. CNN just ruined the sand box game for everyone.

The best part is that Trump has said that the first time someone is rude by not abiding by the new rules, Trump will stop the presser and leave. He´ll only have to do that once.

One more time. The judge gave his ruling based upon case law from, I believe, 1977. But he gave only a 14 day reprieve to Acosta. This was about due process - the method of taking the pass - not the First Amendment.

I could see the very same judge rule against Acosta on this in the future. PDJT plugging the holes by instituting rules of conduct. When Acosta loses his pass again, it will be handled by a WH lawyer.

Enjoy your fortnight, idiot! And revel in being hated by your colleagues (not so much the institutions like CNN and Fox, but the other WH reporters) - we’re finding that out as a result of his tantrum. They know him. They know he could spoil things for the rest of them.

Pres Trump and Sarah Sanders should conduct every press conference by giving Acosta the mike, let him preen, and give him give long answers. Never tell him to give up the mike. After a half hour, they should end the press conference.

Let´s see how the rest of the WH press corp reacts when they never get to ask a question or get attention for themselves before the cameras.

Trump is the master of timing and controlling the message he sends, yet smug people think he is "disorganized" and even stupid, so they never notice Trump is six moves ahead in 3 dimension chess, while they are looking at a checkers board.

This will not end the way Acosta thinks it will, and I, personally, hope all the other "journalists" place blame where it belongs...on Jim Acosta´s narcissistic, egomanical, unprofessional behavior.

That was a first inning ruling by a federal Judge, but it will be the ninth inning yet to be determined ruling that counts.

The Judge has to know that if he attempts to restrict the ability of the President to run the White House that he will be trespassing upon separation of powers principles, that will be appealed to the higher courts and even to the Supreme Court.

Thank you ´earlybird´ and ´little guy´ for more facts and background on the legal aspects of the ruling.

Personally, I thought Sarah should have done this as soon as she realized how childish, antagonistic and arrogantly the media would behave. I guess she was hoping that good manners, precedent and proper decorum would eventually kick in. But, it did not.

Now the kiddies in the room will have to play by PDJT´s rules when previously there were none. I suspect they actually lost more than they gained.

The percentage of government workers who belong to a union dipped again in 2018 and has hit a 40-year low. Just 33.9 percent of government workers now belong to a union, according to government figures, the lowest point since 1978, and down from a peak of 38.7 percent in the 1990s. Behind those numbers has been the failure of government labor groups to bounce back from a steep decline in government employment that began in 2009. That year, unions boasted 7.897 million government workers. Last year, however, just 7.162 million workers

Following months of complaints from the progressive politicos who control local politics in New York City, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos abruptly canceled plans to open the online retailer´s new corporate headquarters branch in Queens. Amazon had spent more than a year hunting for the location of its new headquarters, baiting cities across the country into falling over themselves and making ridiculous promises in a bid to get Amazon´s 50,000 jobs. The tech giant ultimately settled on splitting its new HQ between New York and Crystal City, Va. New York´s corporate welfare package was especially large, appallingly so.

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

ROME — The Vatican on Saturday said it had stripped ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick of the rights of the priesthood, leveling a historic penalty against a onetime church power broker and former archbishop of Washington who has been credibly accused of sexual abuse. In a short release, the Vatican said a canonical process had found McCarrick guilty of several charges, including “sins” with minors and adults, “with the aggravating factor of the abuse of power.” McCarrick, the Vatican said, was notified on Friday of the decision. The decision was affirmed by Pope Francis, meaning McCarrick has no further recourse.

Federal authorities seized two massive shipments of cocaine at the same California port of entry in late January. The total for the two shipments was 221 pounds -- the largest at that port in 25 years, according to officials. The busts, which were announced on Friday, were both found aboard ships at Port Hueneme in Ventura County, about 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles, coming from Central and South America. The first shipment, which was 204.2 pounds, was seized on Jan. 22 on a cargo ship from Ecuador. Six days later, the same authorities found a seven-bundle, 17.5-pound shipment

The most egregious anti-democratic actions ever taken by the what can now fairly be called the Deep State are confirmed with the publication of fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s new book detailing how the FBI and Justice Department plotted to remove President Trump from office for firing FBI Director James Comey. Justice Department and FBI officials spied on U.S. citizens with false warrants, gave a pass to one presidential campaign with a predetermined investigation, investigated another political campaign on the basis of no verified evidence, and illegally leaked information on investigations.

In the late ’70s there was a horrendous spate of child murders in the Atlanta area. Once it became clear that a serial monster was on the loose, people sprang into action. It was all little black children, almost all boys. Racist slanders to the contrary, white people were just as appalled as black people. Committees were formed, ribbons were worn, buttons were sold that said, “Stop the Racist Murders.” OBVIOUSLY, it was racist, right?

On this day in 1989, the Ayatollah Khomeini announced a fatwa calling for the killing of the novelist Salman Rushdie. His “crime” was having described Islam’s founder Muhammad in his book, “The Satanic Verses,” in a way that displeased the Islamic leader. All Muslims were called upon to kill Rushdie — basically, an international contract was put out on him. For an America that was not yet fixated on the dangers of Islamic extremism, it was a chilling moment, both frightening and confusing.

The text of the funding bill was released last night/this morning, and lawmakers are expected to vote on the 1,169-page measure as early as this evening. The bill is disappointing in many respects, but if it had been as advertised earlier, it might have been tolerable. But my fears that senators Durbin and Leahy would trick the Republican conferees (none of whom knows the first thing about immigration policy) were realized. Standing out among the many distasteful provisions are two poison pills that I hope the Republican committee members either didn’t know about or didn’t understand. The first regards the fence.

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.

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.

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
