There are some things you just can’t make up.

CNN’s Jim Acosta, one of President Trump’s fiercest critics in the media, is set to receive a big award.

This is one of those things.

2.) It just really doesn’t make any sense.

From Daily Caller:

The New York Press announced Jim Acosta as the recipient of their “Truth to Power” award Friday. The award is intended to honor “an individual whose body of work challenges the power establishment and/or defends journalists.”

“We are proud to honor a man such as Jim Acosta, who has proven himself throughout his storied, decades-long career to be a journalist of the utmost integrity, ” Jane Tillman Irving, president of the Press Club, said in the release, which was first reported by The Wrap. “For his unwavering commitment to fact and journalism, we are pleased to add to Jim’s many accolades with the Gabe Pressman ‘Truth to Power’ award.”

Acosta must still be salty about the shellacking he took at the hands of President Trump during a press conference at the White House a few months back.

However, there’s no excuse for a journalist to smirk when the governor of Puerto Rico threatens to punch the commander-in-chief (or anybody, for that matter) in the mouth.

From Daily Wire:

In the interview, which aired on “CNN Right Now With Brianna Keilar,” Rossello said: “If the bully gets close, I’ll punch the bully in the mouth.”

Acosta asked, “Just like that.”

Rossello replied, “Just like that.

WATCH:

Needless to say, Acosta and Trump go together like peanut butter and tuna fish.

Jim has revealed he’s set to release a book on Trump.

Twitter took notice and they let Acosta have it…

Kellyanne Conway is the first female campaign manager to be victorious in a presidential election. If she were a liberal, Conway would be deemed a hero by the left.

During a presser with the media back in January, Kellyanne ripped into Acosta for being a “smart ass.”

She wasn’t wrong.

The Democrat Party activist Acosta wanted to know if President Trump was going to “tell the truth” in his Tuesday night address to the nation.

From Fox News:

Acosta – who has emerged as a household name for interruptions when Trump and members of his administration are made available to the press – responded by telling Conway that he doesn’t have an “alternative facts” problem like she does.

Conway: “Make sure that goes viral. This is why I’m one of the only people around here who gives you the time of day. You’re such a smarta– most of the time and I know you want this to go viral.

WATCH:

It’s hard to forget Acosta’s White House outburst. It is certainly something for which he’ll always be remembered – and that may have been the point.

A Trump-appointed judge ruled the White House had to give back Acosta’s hard pass after it was taken from him.

Conservative Mark Levin wasn’t thrilled:

Mayor Cancels LGBTQ Pride Flag Raising At City Hall. You Can Probably Guess What Happened Next

Insert eye roll here.

Published

on

The city administration of Reading, Pennsylvania is being called discriminatory by rabid left-wingers after canceling a ceremony to raise an LGBTQ pride flag at city hall on Monday of this week. City hall canceled the flag ceremony because flying the flag would be showing support for a “political movement” and no flags supporting such movements are to be flown at city hall. via TheBlaze: “People don’t realize how many people come here looking to put up flags for movements and stuff, and I’m just not part of that, and I don’t think we should be,” the Democrat added to WPVI-TV. The LGBT Center of Greater Reading issued a statement saying “what was supposed to be a proud and historical moment” turned into “a show of blatant, unacceptable discrimination.” “We are not a cause,” the statement added. “We are human beings protected by an anti-discrimination ordinance in the City of Reading.” Local LGBTQ leaders told WPVI they plan to file a complaint with the city’s Human Relations Commission. Why should LGBTQ folks have a flag flying at city hall? If all they want is to be treated like everyone else, to be considered equal, why do they continually seek to have more rights and be a protected group? That just doesn’t make any sense. It seems pretty clear what they are really reaching for is normalization. They want other people to accept their lifestyle as normal and acceptable, to be validated. This is because deep down, they know such a lifestyle is sinful and goes against nature. This is identity politics at its finest.

NY Times Makes Insane Claim About Soviets During The Space Race

The folks at the NY Times must be just plain miserable.

Published

on

So it’s beginning to seem like the folks over at the NY Times have some sort of strange infatuation with the oppressive Communist overlords from the Soviet Union, as they’re now, on the cusp of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 moon landing, claiming that the Soviet Union actually won the space race. How, exactly, did they do that? Through “equality.” This, ladies and gentlemen, is just how much the left hates America. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Here’s Sophie Pinkham’s main argument: The Cold War was fought as much on an ideological front as a military one, and the Soviet Union often emphasized the sexism and racism of its capitalist opponents — particularly the segregated United States. And the space race was a prime opportunity to signal the U.S.S.R.’s commitment to equality. After putting the first man in space in 1961, the Soviets went on to send the first woman, the first Asian man, and the first black man into orbit — all years before the Americans would follow suit. Pinkham joins a long list of NYT writers who have glorified the excesses of the Soviet Union. In his – ironically – New York Times best-selling book, “Unfreedom of the Press,” LevinTV host Mark Levin exposed this long history, dating back to Walter Duranty and his propaganda about Stalin’s regime. For nearly a century, the Times has lauded the murderous thugs who ran the Soviet Union and the system they employed. This week, as America celebrates one of her crowning achievements of the 20th century, the Times piles on again, this time by glorifying a few of the people the Soviet’s brutal regime didn’t kill for disagreeing with it. How crazy is this? Apparently these folks are forgetting about how homosexuality is viewed in Russia to this day. It’s not…
