As reported previously, CNN’s Jim Acosta was an utter embarrassment at the North Korean summit, shouting out questions at President Trump and Kim Jong-Un. He just would not quit. Kim ignored him and President Trump actually answered his questions, which is far more than he deserved if you ask me. And it gets even worse. Acosta was caught on a hot mic bragging that he purposefully disrupted the historic peace summit in an act of pettiness that just boggles my mind. It was done out of revenge for not being allowed to sit in on their denuclearization meeting. Just juvenile. He really needs to have his press credentials pulled permanently.
Acosta justified his actions this way, “Hey if they’re not going to let me in the f***ing meeting, that’s what happens… That’s the way it goes, baby.” That should earn this hack a final kick out of the door at the White House and to be told not to ever bother coming back. Breitbart’s Joshua Caplan posted the audio on Twitter. Acosta didn’t even bother denying he said it… it’s obvious he made the comments. Disgusting.
As I said the other day, while the world collectively held their breath during the historic signing of the denuclearization agreement between Trump and Kim, Acosta shouted out: “Mr. President, did we agree to denuclearize?” Trump answered and Acosta had the nerve to shout an even more insulting question… “Did you talk about Otto Warmbier, sir?” Trump did discuss human rights with Kim, but the media spun it as if he didn’t. After that outburst, Acosta stepped way over the line and yelled at Kim, “Mr. Kim will you give up your weapons, sir?” No answer and I’m not surprised by that either. Why should Kim bother to answer some rude American reporter?

President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, had plenty to say about Acosta’s disgraceful behavior. He tweeted that Acosta’s press credentials should be revoked. Amen to that! Acosta violated the first rule of journalism; he is far more interested in making himself the story than reporting on it. Parscale has nailed Acosta before and rightly so. He also said that Acosta’s press credentials should be stripped after he trolled President Trump when he was interacting with children during the White House Easter egg roll. “I think the White House should pull his credentials because he yelled questions, as he continues to do at inappropriate times, while the President was coloring books with children,” Parscale tweeted in April 2018. “Disrespectful, and would have never been allowed previously.”
Acosta has been a flaming embarrassment from the beginning. He’s always harassing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during her press conferences and he tries to embarrass President Trump every chance he gets. You don’t see real reporters acting like this. None of the people from Fox News act like this. Every time it happens, it’s some leftist media hack. CNN’s Jim Acosta, April Ryan and a number of others hate President Trump so much that they are determined to make a newsworthy spectacle every time they get an opportunity. These are politicized media attacks and should not be allowed. Remember that Acosta was the one that got President Trump to label CNN as fake news in the first place.
From BizPac Review:
“Since President Trump took office, Acosta has repeatedly hijacked high-profile meetings and White House events in his desperate bid to become the day’s viral YouTube sensation.
“In June 2017, Acosta played the “You-Ignored-Me” card when he accused WH press secretary Sarah Sanders of not calling on him even though there were many other media outlets at the press briefing besides CNN.
“In December 2017, Sanders shut Acosta down when he repeatedly interrupted her as she was trying to reply to his question.
“Like his CNN colleague April Ryan, Acosta has thirstily raised his public profile by attacking President Trump and his aides and using the WH press briefings to draw attention to himself.
“In January 2017, Acosta rudely interrupted President Trump during one of his first press conferences since taking office. Trump shut down the CNN clown in epic fashion when he quipped: “You are fake news!””

Acosta hit back at President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager’s call for his press credentials to be revoked, saying the practice happens in “dictatorships…not democracies.” “Dear Brad.. dictatorships take away press credentials. Not democracies,” Acosta tweeted at Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale on Tuesday. First off, we are a Republic. Second, you are allowed into the White House press pool at the President’s discretion and it has always been that way. The reason you haven’t seen credentials revoked in the past is you haven’t seen this kind of rude behavior before. Yes, there is freedom of the press, but that does not mandate that a hack like Acosta be allowed to cover White House press conferences. If he can’t act even remotely professional, he should be barred from attending.
Acosta also defended his decision to shout a question at North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un while in Singapore and said the world would have thought less of the White House press corps if reporters stayed silent. “I couldn’t think of anything else to ask North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, but whether he’s going to give up his nuclear weapons,” he said Wednesday on CNN. “There’s a dictator right in front of you who has nuclear weapons. Why on Earth would you not ask that question?” he asked.
“The question I have is, if you play the same video of him walking past us with President Trump, and you turn the sound down, and the reporters covering this trip didn’t ask any questions, what would the rest of the world have said about the White House press corps, if we hadn’t asked any questions of Kim Jong-Un when he was right in front of us?” he asked. “He’s threatened to vaporize parts of the United States. My goodness, I could not have thought of anything else better to ask at that moment than that question.”
There is a time and place to ask those questions and a peace summit is not it. The world sees a reporter like Acosta and then think that all Americans are rude like he is. They aren’t and he makes all of us look bad. President Trump is about to drop the hammer on this guy – pull his credentials and send him packing. The rest of the CNN gaggle can join him.

Dem Lawmaker Wants To Make Criminals Out Of People By Making A New ‘Hate Crime’
There seems to be some Constitutional issues with this
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by DownTrend
Well, I guess this is one way to cut down on the number of black people in jail. A New York State lawmaker is proposing making it a hate crime to call the police on black people. If you think I’m making this up or overreacting to something, check out this headline from The Patch, which says the same:
And the article backs that headline up:
New Yorkers who call 911 on law-abiding people of color are committing hate crimes and should be prosecuted, according to a state senator who was recently reported to police for campaigning in his own district.
State Senator Jesse Hamilton, who represents Brownsville, Crown Heights and Flatbush, proposed new legislation a week after a self-described Trump fan called police to report him for speaking to constituents in public. It would criminalize 911 calls against people of color without evidence of malice.
“That’s gonna be a hate crime. This pattern of calling the police on black people going about their business and participating in the life of our country has to stop,” said Hamilton.
Try to guess the race and political party of this guy. If you said white and Republican you were way off.
The deal is, there have been a handful of incidents in which white or non-black people have called the police on black people for doing things that were determined not to be a crime. The natural knee-jerk reaction is to make a law for something that isn’t even remotely a problem.
The law however would be a huge problem. If people know they could get slapped with a hate crime charge, they would be reluctant to ever call the police on a black person no matter what kind of heinous crime they appear to be committing. The onus should not be on average citizens to determine the guilt of a person they think is committing a crime. The easiest solution is for 911 operators to weed out the silly calls and not send police when someone reports something that very clearly is not a crime.
I have more than a few questions about this proposed law: Would it still be okay to call the police on white people. I’m assuming yes. Could black people call the police on other black people? How do Asians and Hispanics figure into this law? Oh, and what about illegal aliens who have sanctuary in NY and are above the law? Can they call the police on black people?
There also seems to be some Constitutional issues with this proposed law because it specifically makes it a hate crime to call the police on black people. It would still be a dumb law if it included all people of all races, but making it race-specific like this is a clear violation of equal protection under the law.
The clarification the news gave on this proposed law doesn’t make it seem any less terrible:
Hamilton’s proposal would strengthen current legislation that outlaws false reports by designating racially-motivated 911 calls as hate crimes, especially in instances where the call results in police responding with the preconception that the person might cause a threat. Read More
Man Found Contracts Showing Obama Was Paying Trump Spy – Obama Tried To Shut Him Up By Stripping Security Clearance
Obama-appointed officials cleaned house
A man named Adam Lovinger lost his security clearances after complaining about the questionable government contract that was awarded to Stefan Halper, who is being touted as an FBI informant whose job was to keep an eye on President Trump’s campaign. Who stripped the clearances, you might ask? It’s being reported that it was Obama-appointed officials who cleaned house and ripped Lovinger’s clearances away, presenting to us quite a concern that involves contracts and clashing forces within the government who either supported Obama then or support Trump now. Either way, it’s a mess.
Lovinger was reportedly complaining about Halper’s contracts back in 2016. He then lost his clearances on May 1, 2017. Lovinger’s lawyer, Sean M. Bigley, then complained to the Pentagon’s senior ethics official, mad that Lovinger’s “higher ups” were basically punishing him with the whole security clearance thing – punishing him for complaining about the deals that were given to Mr. Halper and apparently a “best friend” of Chelsea Clinton, as per the Washington Times.
The Washington Times called this out, as well as numerous other sites who wanted the public to be notified about what was going on behind closed doors. Since John Brennan just lost his security clearances, it was probably just another relative topic to bring up someone else who lost their clearances as well. However the big problem is why they lost their clearances and how it ties back to Obama’s administration, and perhaps even Hillary Clinton on a long stretch. Rather than point fingers at two particular names, it might just be the entire Democratic Party. However it goes, it’s up to the public to absorb the information and make their own decisions.
Anytime these news stories are breaking the headlines, it’s always important to take in all the information and figure out what’s going on. Then share the story with people who would enjoy it. If you’re up for a good bit of government drama, then this is right up your political alley!
Here’s a brief summary that details most of what happened:
“As it turns out, one of the two contractors Mr. Lovinger explicitly warned his ONA superiors about misusing in 2016 was none other than Mr. Halper,” Mr. Bigley wrote in his ethics complaint, which called the contracts “cronyism and corruption.”
Mr. Lovinger filed a whistleblower reprisal complaint in May with the Defense Department inspector general against James Baker, director of the Office of Net Assessment. The complaint also singles out Washington Headquarters Services, a Pentagon support agency that awarded the Halper contracts totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars.
In an internal October 2016 email to higher-ups, Mr. Lovinger wrote of “the moral hazard associated with the Washington Headquarters Services contracting with Stefan Halper,” the complaint said. It said Mr. Baker hired Mr. Halper to “conduct foreign relations,” a job that should be confined to government officials.
“It was a topic of conversation within the office,” Mr. Bigley told The Times. “What is Halper doing, and why is he being paid astronomically more than others similarly situated?”
The Office of Net Assessment conducts analyses of future threats and ways to defeat them.
“Nobody in the office seemed to know what Halper was doing for his money,” Mr. Bigley said. “Adam said Jim Baker, the director, kept Halper’s contracts very close to the vest. And nobody seemed to have any idea what he was doing at the time. He subcontracted out a good chunk of it to other academics. He would compile them all and then collect the balance as his fee as a middleman. That was very unusual.”
Mr. Bigley told The Times that the inspector general’s criminal investigative division has interviewed Mr. Lovinger about Office of Net Assessment contracting.
In all, Mr. Lovinger has four cases pending: whistleblower reprisal, criminal division, an ethics complaint and an appeal on his security clearance revocation.
A spokesman told The Times that the Pentagon would not comment on the case’s merits.
The spokesman said the Department of Defense Consolidated Adjudicaitons Facility reviewed Mr. Lovinger’s clearance.
It then “issued a statement of reasons stating why, under [federal guidelines] it would not be clearly consistent with the national interest to continue Mr. Lovinger’s security clearance, and he was provided with the opportunity to respond to the security concerns,” the spokesman said. “After considering all available information, the CAF issued an unfavorable clearance determination and Mr. Lovinger’s clearance was revoked.”
Mr. Bigley said the conflict is that the consolidated authority resides within the Washington Headquarters Services, which is the target of Mr. Lovinger’s complaint.
“The CAF’s entire ‘adjudication’ of this case was orchestrated by corrupt officials at WHS, which was demonstrated numerous times throughout the process,” he said.
To conservatives, Mr. Lovinger is a victim of the “deep state” — Obama loyalists out to harm the Trump administration.
Press reports identified Mr. Halper as a paid FBI confidential human source, whose mission was to make contacts with Trump campaign workers. The FBI was investigating any Trump ties to Moscow at a time when its intelligence officers were hacking Democratic Party computers.”
After lodging his complaints about the Office of Net Assessment’s outside research in general and Mr. Halper specifically, Mr. Lovinger sought an assignment to the Trump White House national security staff in January 2017. He was soon confronted with allegations from Mr. Baker that he failed to follow security rules. Mr. Lovinger denies any wrongdoing.
Mr. Baker was appointed chief of the Office of Net Assessment in 2015 by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, Mr. Obama’s appointee.
The Washington Headquarters Services, which revoked Mr. Lovinger’s clearance, is headed by Barbara Westgate, who was appointed in 2016.
Perhaps the most intriguing narrative in the Lovinger story is the appearance of Mr. Halper, a national security consultant in the U.S. and Britain who is tied to that country’s MI6 spy agency through his business partner.”
