‘Free Press Act’ would require White House
to hold regular televised press briefings

Washington Times, by Andrew Blake

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/15/2017 1:09:06 PM

The White House would be required to hold at least a couple on-camera press briefings each week if a Democratic lawmaker musters support for a House bill being offered. Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut introduced the Free Press Act on Thursday, a legislative proposal that aims to increase transparency within the Trump administration by mandating two on-camera press briefings per week. “The White House has begun to dramatically, and in an historically unprecedented way, reduce the media and therefore the American people’s access to the thinking of the president,” Mr. Himes said in a statement. “And that’s not healthy.”

Other than these perpetrators of "fake news" mostly looking to see their soundbite on the "Evening News," why exactly do they need this access to the White House the we don´t have? It would be simpler if some new way, like tweeting questions could be used. After all, their lengths are limited to 140 characters. The press secretary can pick which Tweets are important to US, more than the constant, useless "gotcha" diatribes by a profession that plagiarizes itself in lockstep to the dRATS beat. There should be a "Free Press Act" for US that requires them to name sources

Seems to me that this act would be unconstitutional.

What we need is an honest press act. Media needs to be held accountable for its lies and slander. Yellow journalism is responsible for the ongoing violence and bloodshed. The strategy of the left fromnthe time of Lenin and Stalin is seize and hold power by bloodshed.

#2 is right, it would be unconstitutional. The president and his staff have the right to speak -- and not to speak -- just like everyone else.

The name of this "law," the Free Press Act, is downright Orwellian. Some freedom.

I was thinking along the lines of #4. These obscure Congress critters are just using this opportunity to get some face time while they poke a stick in the bicycle wheels of the Trump administration.

Another way? Get the whole crowd together, make them wait for 30 minutes or so (“stuff happens”), read a statement and hand it out. And not take questions. Or take three questions. Rotate questioners.

If it wasn’t such a colossal waste of time, this could be great fun.

We have 3 branches of government,the judiciary, the legislative and the executive.
One branch of government cannot tell the other how to conduct their business unless there is a violation of the constitution.
All the president would have to do is nothing.
How would congress enforce such a law?

Even if they could get it passed, wouldn´t Trump need to sign it before it went into effect??

I say Sean Spicer (or his designated replacement) could go over to Congress and give the press briefings in front of the camera set up by C-SPAN, with or without allowing questions.

Seems to me also, #2. The other branches have oversight and responsibilities to weigh in on the activities of the executive, but they do not have veto power or authority to micro-manage, Marbury v Madison notwithstanding.

As to the "rights" of the media: who picks the "authorized" media? They should be free per the First Amendment, but nowhere does the Constitution say that they are "entitled". Nobody elected them.

And the Constitution does not even require the POTUS to present his SOTU to Congress in person.

But who adheres to the Constitution anymore - including and especially the courts? /s

Posturing - Just Posturing

All their other meme´s are faltering and going by the wayside so they need another windmill to fight - It´s just posturing so they can act like Mel Brooks in Blazing Saddles - Harrumph, Harrumph, Harrumph...

Above posters are correct, The Donald would have to sign it for the legislation to become law - but, by liberal, progressive, communist, democrap thinking, the Constitution is only valid when they need to hold it over a Conservative´s head. Otherwise, it´s dynamic and can be ´adjusted´ when need be.

Mr. President, keep up the good work. MAGA

Churches and homes had been ransacked, people had been shot or taken hostage, and now Philippines government troops, planes and helicopters were pounding the Islamic State loyalists who had taken over large parts of the town on May 23. Six days into the occupation, 17-year-old Jalil said he came across a crowd of fellow fighters led by rebel chief Abdullah Maute, including a boy who looked about 10.

Detroit - U.S. automakers are facing mounting pressure amid slowing demand in the country, as Asian and European automakers aggressively ramp up vehicle production in North America, including a new investment by Daimler AG. In the latest move, German automaker Daimler plans to spend $1 billion to expand its Mercedes Benz assembly plant near Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to produce batteries and electric sport utility vehicles that would compete with Silicon Valley electric car maker Tesla Inc’s models, according to a person briefed on the matter. The Wall Street Journal reported the investment earlier on Thursday.

Their electrical grid is destroyed. It wasn’t in great shape to start with,” Mr. Trump said during a meeting at the U.N. General Assembly in New York. He did not say when he would make the visit.

President Trump said Thursday that more sanctions are coming against North Korea over its nuclear and missile programs. “We will put more sanctions on North Korea,” Mr. Trump told reporters at the United Nations. He didn’t specify when the action would occur. The U.N. hit Pyongyang with new sanctions several weeks ago in response to its missile tests in violation of Security Council resolutions. Since then, North Korea has launched missiles over Japan and tested a hydrogen bomb. Mr. Trump said Tuesday that the U.S. is prepared to destroy North Korea if it attacks the U.S. or its allies.

San Francisco - An international group of cryptography experts has forced the U.S. National Security Agency to back down over two data encryption techniques it wanted set as global industry standards, reflecting deep mistrust among close U.S. allies. In interviews and emails seen by Reuters, academic and industry experts from countries including Germany, Japan and Israel worried that the U.S. electronic spy agency was pushing the new techniques not because they were good encryption tools, but because it knew how to break them. The NSA has now agreed to drop all but the most powerful versions of the techniques -

Sen. Rand Paul, who opposed the nuclear deal with Iran two years ago, wants the United States to stay in the agreement — even as President Donald Trump sends clues that he is preparing to derail it. In an interview Wednesday, the Kentucky Republican said he believes evidence shows that Iran has been complying with the terms of the deal, cut by former President Barack Obama and aimed at curbing Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. Instead of withdrawing from the nuclear deal, Paul argued that the administration should instead look at a deal that would target Iran’s continuing ballistic missile program.

In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined
