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.

FTA: Prepare for the upcoming round of media cycles, all about Poor Jim Acosta’s Ordeal.

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 Perfectly Legal Corruption
No One Cares About
Townhall, by Derek Hunter    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/16/2018 4:43:14     Post Reply
The buzz this week in the news was all about corruption. OK, it was about one very specific type of corruption – the President paying women to not go public with allegations of affairs they say happened 12 years ago. But this is Washington, DC, sex scandals are only the tip of the corruption iceberg. Only, unlike anything involving Donald Trump, most of them are perfectly legal and the media has little to no interest in reporting on them. I don’t know what Trump did 12 years ago, he wasn’t President at the time so I don’t care.

“The nation has a breakdown”. This was a headline on Radio 4’s PM this week. It was said in that usual Radio 4 tone of jocular irony. All rather fascinating and quite amusing. No, it isn’t. We all respond to stress in different ways. Since Monday afternoon, when I should have been trying to earn some money, I have been gripped by a migraine and the latest episode in the slow-motion national car crash, the one that was meant to end with a vote. But it didn’t. There was a deadline, and then there wasn’t.

Where do I go to get my reputation back? Do you know how many times I’ve been called a “racist” over the last six years for calling Elizabeth Warren exactly what she just called herself in Baltimore – “not a person of color.” In other words, a fake Indian. She finally admitted the obvious on a Friday afternoon, just before Christmas, in front of what she must have assumed would be a somewhat sympathetic audience at a black college. Two months after offering what she claimed was definitive proof of her Native American ancestry, she is now acknowledging that she’s a honky.

Does the Kevin Hart Oscar debacle

If there was any doubt about whether the LGBT political establishment wields cultural power in the United States, it was put to rest last week with the Kevin Hart Oscars-hosting debacle. Hometown comedian Hart, a Hollywood workhorse who might have struck the right tone at the helm of a show that apparently nobody wants to host, was hounded off and publicly shamed almost as soon as he was announced. In what is now a depressingly common phenomenon, old tweets of Hart’s, including some that contained homophobic jokes, were “revealed” (they were publicly available), and a protest movement was mounted.

Michael Cohen did himself absolutely no favors by granting a televised interview before he goes to prison. The point was to rehabilitate his image, transforming himself from tax evader, bank swindler, and all-around liar to repentant nun. But he inadvertently revealed himself even more clearly as defeated, bitter, and without a future. Over and over again, Cohen repeated that he “took responsibility” for his crimes and that he was done lying, as if he had any other choice. He pleaded guilty to all charges and has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Good Riddance to Obamacare

Surprise, surprise. Obamacare, aka the Affordable [sic] Care Act, is dead, pending a possible Supreme Court review. U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth sided with the argument put forward by a coalition of Republican-leaning states, led by Texas, that Obamacare could no longer stand now that there´s no penalty for Americans who don´t buy insurance. The U.S. Supreme Court had upheld the law in 2012, by classifying the legislation as a tax. But since Congress removed the individual mandate in 2017, O’Connor ruled, there´s no way the ACA can be allowed to stand. Arrivederci, sayonara, good-bye, we hardly knew ya.

If you want a textbook example of wrongful prosecution of a man who should never have been charged with a crime, just look at the case of retired Army Lt. Gen. and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

The new court filings provide yet more proof that Mueller will stop at almost nothing and run over anyone

The debate over the Electoral College comes up constantly during American elections, including the midterms last month, with many on the left calling for a popular vote instead. The process of electoral delegates voting for one particular party even if the popular vote of their state had only a slim majority makes the presidential elections seem generally unfair. Under the electoral system, lower-population states have outsized influence, higher-population states have somewhat limited influence, and swing states enjoy all the attention. With a popular vote, so the thinking goes, each citizen would have a voice, and the president and his administration

It was 20 years ago this month that the House of Representatives impeached President Bill Clinton. The vote took place December 19, 1998, with two of four articles approved by the House, the first on grounds that Clinton had lied to a grand jury (228-206), and the second on grounds that Clinton had obstructed justice (221-212). He became only the second president (the other in 1868) to be impeached. At the start of the year, January 17, 1998, Clinton had given a sworn deposition flatly denying a “sexual relationship,” “sexual affair,” or “sexual relations” with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

The pastor was criticized by social media users questioning how he could afford the car.

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

The sinister conversation, in which they urged the left to put the mother and wife “in their crosshairs” occurred on Saturday’s show. “This is the first time that we have Ivanka . . . in the crosshairs . . .
