Trump Had a Surprise Waiting For CNN When They Tried To Enter The White House – PRICELESS!

Published

on

One of the well-known journalists from CNN got quite a surprise as he arrived at the White House. Anyone who may have seen this probably had quite a laugh as they witnessed the power of Trump and the little surprise that may or may not have been planned. Most likely not planned at all, but this sure caught CNN’s Jim Acosta off-guard. He was caught on camera having a meltdown when the White House Secret Service failed to recognize him as he tried to enter the White House yesterday.

Michael J. Morrison, who posted the video confirmed that Acosta was having a meltdown when the Secret Service stopped him after he had walked from the South Lawn into the White House without wearing his credentials around his neck. Sadly Morrison said that by the time he was able to get his camera out and start recording that Acosta was already cooling off.

Clearly defeated, as Acosta left he said: “I have been here 5 years and no one said anything to me before.”

Note from the Editor: This was a popular story for Right Wing News when it first ran a couple weeks ago. We’re bringing it back for your enjoyment and the important message Americans need to receive.

Note from the Editor: This was a popular story for Right Wing News when it first ran a couple weeks ago. We’re bringing it back for your enjoyment and the important message Americans need to receive.

As reported on National Review, Acosta has a history of odd behavior:

“Jim Acosta, CNN’s White House correspondent, has been having a public meltdown regarding the president’s treatment of the media, and the Washington Post has noticed.

The Post’s media reporter, Paul Farhi, launched an inquiry into Acosta’s “grandstanding” in a piece in Sunday’s style section.

“Acosta’s remarks aren’t just blunt; they’re unusual. Reporters are supposed to report, not opine,” wrote Farhi. “Yet Acosta’s disdain has flowed openly, raising a question about how far a reporter — supposedly a neutral arbiter of facts, not a commenter on them — can and should go.”

While CNN host Brian Stelter’s 15-minute monologues moaning about Trump’s treatment of the press are run-of-the-mill for cable-news pundits, Acosta’s public displays of resistance in the White House press-briefing room break all precedent. Rather than press Sean Spicer or Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Trump’s agenda, Acosta has spent since roughly last February focusing on how the White House conducts its press briefings and how it treats CNN.

Acosta’s repeated badgering of Spicer to hold on-camera briefings creates clip-worthy scenes, which feel like a bold defense of journalism, even though, given the nature of White House press briefings, they do not actually matter much. Briefings say most about a president’s communications angle, and seeing as Trump seems not to have any clear communications strategy or message beyond his Twitter feed, the briefing has become little more than a charade.

That has not stopped Acosta from tweeting out photos of his socks at non-televised briefings (“I can’t show you a picture of Sean. So here is a look at some new socks I bought over the wknd”), changing his Twitter bio to “I believe in #realnews,” and lambasting an “erosion of our freedoms” at every possible television appearance.

Of course, CNN has been goading this inanity at every point of his performance, no doubt because this “feud” between CNN and the White House generates so many views. While Trump’s communications team has haplessly attempted to cling to #EnergyWeek and #InfrastructureWeek as the media cares only about Russia, CNN has sent its Supreme Court sketch artist to the briefings at which cameras are prohibited. After all, nothing stands more in the way of democracy than not knowing what color tie Sean Spicer chose on a given day.

But of course, if Acosta has legitimate concerns with Trump’s policy and politics, it makes sense that he would clamor for direct access. For the sake of fairness, let’s go through Acosta’s journalistic highlights since the ascent of Trump.

While the rest of CNN’s reporters were presumably licking their wounds and listening to some spoken-word poetry following Trump’s victory, Acosta broke out some of the network’s hardest-hitting reporting, booking reservations at the Michelin-starred Jean Georges restaurant to stalk the then-president-elect at dinner with Reince Priebus and rumored secretary of state candidate Mitt Romney. At least 20 feet away from the dinner, Acosta live-tweeted all sorts of juicy scoops, such as “Trump crossing his arms for a good while now as Romney smiles and speaks” and “Fresh marshmallows are prepared as Trump, Romney, and Priebus dine.” Acosta was promptly “#busted” — yes, that’s a direct quote from Acosta’s tweets — when Trump approached Acosta, but that didn’t stop him from reporting later that “Trump, Romney, and Priebus have moved on to dessert.”

In June, Acosta was quick to quote an anonymous White House official, claiming that Trump did not meet with Representative Steve Scalise following the shooting at Alexandria. Fewer than 30 minutes later, Acosta debunked his own false claim, which had presumably come from a made-up or unreliable source.

Last Thursday, Acosta perpetuated the New York Times’ erroneous assertion that 17 intelligence agencies have claimed that Russia meddled in the 2016 elections (in fact, it was four), but not before calling Trump’s joint news conference in Poland a “fake news conference” for taking a question from a Daily Mail reporter who is “essentially an ally of the White House.”

Never mind that Trump also called on MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson at the conference. (Jackson called on Trump to formally acknowledge that Russia interfered in the election. Trump said that it might be Russia and then deflected to “But Obama” and a strange aside about Iraq’s nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.)

Perhaps Acosta’s complaints would be more valid if he agitated for the rights of any other news organizations. Instead, his complaining revolves solely around Trump and CNN, obsessing over this relationship rather than what the government is actually doing.

Furthermore, Trump’s antipathy to the media is not exactly unprecedented. Throughout his presidency, Obama openly and repeatedly derided Fox News’s “destructive viewpoint.”

Less than a year into his presidency, Obama’s communications director, Anita Dunn, told the New York Times, “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.”

“Attacking the news media is a time-honored White House tactic, but to an unusual degree, the Obama administration has narrowed its sights to one specific organization, the Fox News Channel, calling it, in essence, part of the political opposition,” wrote the Times. “But shots are still being fired, which animates the idea that both sides see benefits in the feud.”

Emmys Hosts Were Warned But Didn’t Listen, Now They’re Going To Pay BIG For Christian ’Crackhead’ Rant

Published

on

There was a time when Hollywood actually produced material that promoted good morals and faith. Families in TV shows and movies actually prayed, went to church, believed in God, etc. That was a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, as they would say.

Today’s Hollywood is basically anti-Christian. Not only in the entertainment industry’s productions, but in the lifestyles of those who make their livings starring on the big & small screens. That fact was on display at this year’s Emmys.

Fox News reported:

“The 70th Annual Emmy Awards kicked off with a slew of political jokes and jabs as expected. But one remark from co-host Michael Che left many viewers upset.

During Che’s opening monologue with his fellow “Saturday Night Live” star Colin Jost, Che explained that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night.

“My mother is not watching,” Che said. “She says she doesn’t like watching white award shows because you guys don’t thank Jesus enough.”

He continued, “That’s true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads.”

The joke didn’t sit well with some viewers who took to Twitter to complain.

“Okay @DaytimeEmmys #MichaelChe I am not a Republican neither an ex- crack head do I get to thank #Jesus according to your standards? I’m a believer any and WILL thank JESUS! Really bad writing,” one user wrote.

“More Colin Just and Michael Che’s opening monologue bombed harder than I ever could have dreamed,” another tweeted.

“Michael Che – do not knock JC – Jesus is just all right with me.”

“This has to be one of the dumbest remarks I’ve ever heard from some Hollywood actor. Absolutely outrageous!” another tweet read.

Before Che and Jost took the stage, the Emmys started with a song whose chorus was “We Solved It,” a comic ode to the diversity of nominees — and Hollywood self-satisfaction.

“Saturday Night Live” stars and Emmy nominees Monday night Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson started the song, pointing out that Sandra Oh could become the first woman of Asian descent to win an Emmy.

The comedians sang: “There were none, now there’s one, so we’re done.”

They were joined by Tituss Burgess, Kristen Bell, Sterling K. Brown and Ricky Martin, who declared the song “too white” and gave it a Latin turn.

Andy Samberg showed up to ask in song if there was a place for a straight white male in the song before being sent off. Martin and Samberg were met with loud cheers inside Microsoft Theater.”

Others also voiced their disappointment on social media.

Early in the 20th century up until the 1950s, Hollywood was actually kept in check by state & local governments, and also by religious leaders.

According to FaithWire:

“Local governments essentially regulated films from 1915 until 1952.”

Thomas Doherty, professor of American studies at Brandeis University, explained to author Billy Hallowell that:

“Movies [had] no First Amendment rights, which means state censorship boards, city censorship boards, a sheriff who didn’t like the film, could basically go in and shut down the movie.”

“Between the pressure from faith leaders and the government intrusion into the matter, it didn’t take long for Hollywood to opt for self-censorship, with the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America, an organization that later became the Motion Picture Association of America, creating a moral code that Hollywood studios subscribed to when releasing films.

Industry insiders came together to form the organization, which was headed by former politician William H. Hays from 1922 to 1945, as an effort to stave off government censorship. The Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America, under Hays’s leadership, set up a series of control measures aimed at trying to keep Hollywood in check.”

Religious leaders concerned with what was coming out of Tinseltown also acted.

“Christian leaders actually played an in-depth role in shaping what was coming out of Hollywood at the time — something that would seem unimaginable today.

“Roman Catholics were upset about the moral and social content of Hollywood cinema in the 1920s, so in around 1930, a couple prominent Catholics — a guy named Martin Quigley, who edited Motion Picture Herald … and a devout Catholic, a big-time Catholic layman and a Jesuit priest, named Father Daniel A. Lord — got together and wrote a moral code for the movies,” Doherty explained. “It had a moral philosophy, and then a list of prescriptions, things you should do, things you couldn’t do.”

It was this production code that offered up strict guidance for what would absolutely not be tolerated in Hollywood productions. Sex, crime, offensive language, nudity, illegal drug use, the ridicule of religion, and certain other behaviors were cracked down on.”

Hollywood took note of the pressure coming from government & people of faith.

“This pushback created problems for movie moguls, which led to the creation of the Production Code Administration to ensure that the movie industry’s moral code that had been ignored since 1930 would finally be upheld; that move was more successful.

So, aside from the censorship concerns, why did Hollywood create and finally come to comply with the code? Much of the motivation boiled down to money, according to PBS. Hays was reportedly able to convince studios that abiding by the Production Code was the most prudent path forward. After all, if they didn’t, they would end up doling out more money to change films once government censorship boards got a hold of them.”

Perhaps it’s time for religious leaders to begin urging their flocks to shun Hollywood again until it gets its act together. Maybe all of the different denominations – Catholic, Protestant, Mormon, etc., working together, can make a difference.

Share this if you want Hollywood to wise up & respect those of faith!

Congrats! Sarah Just Hit Huge Accomplishment Defying All Odds And EVERYONE Missed It!

Published

...

* By

In Washington, D.C. where careers can be as notoriously short-lived as the memories of some of the American people, or as long as those beltway lifers you are willing to climb into bed with, certain milestones stand out. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reached a milestone few thought she would reach, and ironically enough was acknowledged by none other than a single lone reporter from the press pool themselves.

With the usual standing room only in the White House Briefing Room, the 36-year-old mother of three presided as unruffled as always, over her 100th formal session before the shark-infested waters of the mainstream media propaganda mouthpieces and a handful of legitimate reporters.

Jake Turx said, the senior White House correspondent for Ami Magazine, stated – “Thank you, Sarah. I’d like to congratulate you. This is your 100th briefing, and there’s no way what you do every day is easy.”

Sanders gave a gracious smile and then offered a small thank you to the reporter before allowing him to continue with a question.

CBS News reports

She began with a few announcements, telling reporters that President Trump had been briefed earlier in the day by Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen on the looming threat to Hawaii of Hurricane Lane, now a Category 4 storm.

It was her first briefing in a week and came a day after the convictions of former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, the subject that dominated questions from reporters.

She was prepared, and responded by saying again and again that “the president has done nothing wrong and there are no charges against him.” Other questions on the subject that she was not prepared to answer, and she referred reporters to the president’s outside counsel.

It was the usual level of toughness as her briefings go, not that any of her briefings are tiptoes through the tulips.

“It depends on the day,” she said in an interview Tuesday when asked if she has come to view her press briefings as an unpleasant chore or with dread. Her answer is the same when asked if the press briefing is the best or worst part of her day.

But there are clear indications she prefers fewer and shorter briefings since conducting her first one as White House press secretary on July 26 of last year.

At first, Sanders held 2-4 briefings a week, averaging 24 minutes in length. In recent weeks, the frequency has diminished to 1 or 2 a week, averaging 19 minutes in duration. Her 99th White House briefing was Wednesday of last week.

Her predecessor, Sean Spicer, conducted 58 formal White House Briefings during his six months as press secretary. They averaged 41 minutes in length.

“We get information out in a number of different ways,” says Sanders, defending the diminished frequency of her briefings. She cites social media, which includes frequent avalanches of tweets by President Trump. “We also have a president who’s extremely accessible and engages with the press a lot more.”

He’s certainly accessible to Fox News, who Wednesday has its 30th interview with Mr. Trump since he took office, many times more than any other news organization.

Of the adversarial and sometimes combative tone of some exchanges at her briefings, Sanders says “it certainly has its moments.”

“My job is to answer whatever the questions are,” though reporters are often dissatisfied with her responses. It is balanced out by her dissatisfaction with the “gotcha” and occasionally accusatory questions she faces.

“My goal is to go out there and do the best I can to represent the president and to communicate his message and his policies,” she says about her objective in the briefing room.

She says some reporters “are doing more to perform and get a clip for a news segment than they are to actually get information.” She mentions no names.

“I think if we could focus on pushing out information, versus just trying to have either a ‘gotcha’ moment or a heated exchange they could play on their nightly news, I think everybody would be better served.”

At the same time, Sanders says her criticism does not apply to all reporters at her briefings. She volunteers that some “are working hard to just get information so that they can report on it.” But she’s quick to add, that “there are certainly some I think are a little too focused on the wrong things.”

She says Mr. Trump sometimes watches her briefings, ‘if he has a chance…but does not watch every time.'”

Sanders has certainly proven herself an asset to the Trump administration and to President Trump himself, stating in a recent interview of her position as press secretary – “I certainly hope that as long as I can continue to be productive and helpful to the president, he’ll keep me around. I consider every single day that I’m here to be a privilege and I’ll keep showing up every day and work hard.”
