Acosta Has Crossed The Line! Americans Call For His Termination

This is just plain sickening.

Jim Acosta

The temperament of the mainstream media is undoubtedly a worrisome bit of American politics in this day and age.

We have seen nothing less than pure, unadulterated scandal-capitalism at play with these media miscreants over the course of the last two years.  CNN and others have long been pushing the idea of a “New Civil War” – a devastating and horrific wish being made simply because it will vastly improve the failing ratings all over the corporately-controlled world of cable “news”.

One of the most egregious characters in this mess has been Jim Acosta of CNN.

Acosta’s antics from within the White House have created a reputation for the liberal journalist as a man hellbent on making a name for himself alongside President Trump’s.  In many ways, it feels as though Acosta may be betting his entire career on this tactic.

Now, as he continues to face pressure from the American people over his behavior, Acosta has snapped.

CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta does not like to be teased, not even a little bit.

On Thursday, a former White House official mildly teased the left-wing provocateur in a tweet which led to Acosta snapping back in a private message, telling the former official: “F**k you.”

The latest emotional outburst from Acosta came after he complained about the music being too loud at President Donald Trump’s rally in Montana.

Justin Caporale, a former official for First Lady Melania Trump, teased Acosta in a tweet that said, “Dear Diary,” a term that is commonly used on Twitter to tease Acosta over his tweets since they usually sound like whining.

Acosta then responded via direct message.

In this day and age of mounting political violence and vitriol, Acosta’s incredibly shallow and pedantic escalation of the situation is appalling and abhorrent.  If he is allowed to continue his work with CNN, there will certainly be an uproar from the disenfranchised right wing, for whom the rules of civility and consequence still matter.

US State Pushes to Make Mask Mandates Permanent

The move is sure to have freedom advocates in the Beaver State enraged.

The American landscape is currently littered with a hodgepodge of coronavirus precautions, as each state, country, town, and business takes the COVID-19 pandemic at their own level of seriousness.

This has, of course, made it somewhat difficult for any individual to navigate their day in compliance to the ever-changing rigidity of the pandemic’s threat.  And, furthermore, it has led to some questionable decisions by local leaders looking to simplify the issue.

The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) assembled a Rules Advisory Committee (RAC) earlier this week to address a permanent indoor mask mandate in the state. Oregon is one of a few states that still retain one nearly two years into the pandemic.

The committee included several community stakeholders, including representatives from the hospitality industry, the business sector, and faith communities, according to local ABC affiliate KATU.

Local leaders attempted to downplay the “permanent” status of the mandate.

Dr. Paul Cieslak, the medical director for communicable diseases and immunizations with OHA, explained to KATU that OHA’s potential “permanent” indoor mask mandate is not necessarily permanent because it can be repealed.

“Permanent means indefinite. It doesn’t necessarily mean permanent,” Cieslak said. “We can repeal it as well, but we are only allowed to have a temporary rule for 180 days, and anything that goes beyond 180 days, we cannot extend it.”

The move is sure to have freedom advocates in the Beaver State enraged.

Trump Makes Major Fundraising Haul for Social Media Platform

That’s a lot of moolah.

Published

Truth is coming, and if recent fundraising figures are any indication of the might of the forthcoming social media platform, the online world could be in for a major paradigm shift.

The network, which was conjured by former President Donald Trump as a response to the rampant online censorship of conservative voices, will undoubtedly be a smash hit when it eventually arrives.  And while the date for its inaugural truth to be posted has wavered a bit, there is no lack of support for the project.

Former President Trump’s social media group, Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. (TMTG), and its blank-check company announced on Saturday it had received a commitment of $1 billion from an unidentified “diverse group of institutional investors.”

TMTG and blank-check company Digital World Acquisition Corp. said that “subscription agreements for $1 billion in committed capital” would be received from an unknown group of investors once TMTG and Digital World are combined.

In October, Trump announced that he would be creating a social media network dubbed “Truth Social,” whose full launch is expected in the first quarter of 2022. The network has been advertised as a platform “that encourages open global conversation without discrimination on the basis of political ideology.”

Trump will undoubtedly rely heavily on Truth Social in the coming months, particularly as he begins to prepare for a likely 2024 reelection campaign.
