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.

POTUS and George Conway Trade NASTY Narratives Online

Conway’s insinuation of Trump’s mental condition set the President off.

George Conway

After President Trump’s extended Tweet storm this past weekend, it comes as no surprise that there would be some residual precipitation throughout the week. The Commander in Chief, who is an avid and proficient Twitter user, has been using the platform to circumvent the mainstream media as of late.  The reason being is simple; the MSM is slanted and biased in ways that our nation would never have imagined possible. Of course, due to the freedom of the internet, (or what’s left of it anyway), there are plenty of characters who spend their days attempting to garner the attention of the President via the Twitter platform.  Often these short and biting pieces of drivel sail right past ol’ 45. Not today, however. Kellyanne Conway’s husband George is ‘a total loser,’ Preisdent Donald Trump claimed on Tuesday, less than 24 hours after the Washington lawyer blasted him on Twitter as mentally ill. And the president’s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, claimed ‘Mr. Kellyanne Conway’ is ‘jealous’ of his more-famous wife’s success after being bounced from a low-prestige job at the U.S. Department of Justice. ‘He barely worked @TheJusticeDept and was either fired/quit, didn’t want the scrutiny? Now he hurts his wife because he is jealous of her success. POTUS doesn’t even know him!’ Parscale tweeted Monday night. George Conway and President Trump have feuded quite publicly in the past as well, but this latest spat seems to have arrived with a newfound intensity, thanks in no small part to the President’s increasingly combative behavior. But can we really blame Trump for this shift in attitude?  Given what passes for “news” these days, we’re not so sure.

O’Rourke Accused of Wrongly Appropriating “Beto” by Latino Journalist

Looks like “Beto” may have to go back to “Robert Francis” for the time being…

Beto O'Rourke

The mainstream media has been tiptoeing around Robert Francis O’Rourke’s name for some time now, but it seems that the jig is up. “Beto” is what O’Rourke refers to himself as, and there is an extremely specific reason why.  As a politician living in El Paso, Texas, the Latino demographic is of the utmost importance for the democratic presidential candidate. “Beto” is a Mexican nickname, short for “Roberto” and O’Rourke has certainly used this to his advantage in politics. Now, a prominent Latino journalist is bashing “Beto” for the appropriation of the nickname, comparing the move to “stolen valor”. In fact, in a USA Today column, Ruben Navarrette said that the “Beto backlash” among Latinos reminds him “of the idea of stolen valor, the righteous outrage felt by combat veterans when others who didn’t see action claim medals they don’t deserve.” Navarrette said that numerous Latinos “— unlike the media, which is run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto” because O’Rourke has not been with the community when it mattered on issues like immigration. Navarrette continued… “For instance, at a time when Latinos feel under siege by ethnocentrism and anti-immigrant demagoguery, where was O’Rourke on the explosive immigration issue during his three terms in the House of Representatives?” Navarrette asked. And this wasn’t the first time that the journalist went after Robert Francis O’Rourke, either. In a previous column last month addressing “cultural appropriation,” Navarrette noted that though O’Rourke, whom he dubbed “the Hamlet of West Texas,” has likely “never gone out and told a group of Mexican-Americans that he was a member of the tribe,” it seems like “he doesn’t mind if some Latinos jump to that conclusion and vote for him because of some misplaced sense of ethnic…
