CNN’s Acosta Interviews Friend of Kavanaugh Accuser. What She Admits on Air Speaks Volumes.

Published

on

On Wednesday, CNN host Jim Acosta, everyone’s favorite obnoxious White House correspondent, sat down and interviewed a former classmate of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

This little encounter didn’t seem to go the way that Acosta and many others on the left were hoping it would, as the guest, Samantha Guerry, basically admitted that she had absolutely no knowledge of any wrongdoing on the part of Kavanaugh.

Acosta theorized that members of the GOP were “complaining” that the Ford accusation was revenge for the refusal of the GOP to confirm Judge Merrick Garland in 2016. He asked, “Do you think she (Ford) would be a part of that if that was going on?”

Guerry patronized, “I understand that this is highly inconvenient to the Republicans’ agenda right now,” adding that how the matter was handled was not Ford’s decision, but the Democrats’. She pontificated, “Whether it was revealed two months ago or last week, I’m not sure how relevant that is.” She later claimed that Ford would have to appear in a public forum, “in front of thousand of cameras and of people,” which is false; the Judiciary Committee has offered for her to testify privately. Acosta did not correct her.

Finally, Acosta got down to what mattered, asking, “What Dr. Ford is alleging, is this the first time you heard anything like that with respect to Judge Kavanaugh?” This exchange followed:

Guerry: Absolutely, it’s not the first time I’ve heard anything like that in terms of the community of women I know, and not regarding him but —

Acosta: Those sorts of things went on?

Guerry: A lot … You know, one of the things that’s surprising to me as I’ve gotten involved in this in the last couple days is how many women of my class have come forward to me in this last few days and said, “I had similar experiences in high school,” and this hits me very deeply and it’s very —

ACOSTA: Not with Brett Kavanaugh, but with other boys?

GUERRY: Not with Brett Kavanaugh. But with other boys in our community, and we all feel that if we were in her shoes, we’d want to be taken seriously as well.

Okay, look, it’s awful that these women had this experience back in the day, but right now, the main focus here is on the Kavanaugh case. Anyone else guilty of doing something wrong needs to be taken up with local police. It’s not a matter of national concern.

All of this hoopla and the media circus surrounding it have to do with Kavanaugh and whether or not he is guilty of sexual assault. If he is, he deserves to be in prison. Like yesterday.

If it’s not true, the accuser — Ford — needs to recant, confess, and issue an apology for her conduct, facing the penalty for her actions.

It’s really that simple.

Liberal Legal Scholar Slams Twitter Over Censoring Trump; Declares ‘Free Speech’ Ultimate ‘Loser’

Published

on

Jonathan Turley, a constitutional law scholar recently warned that Twitter’s choice to fact-check and hide certain tweets from President Trump threatens the concept of free speech in the Unites States. Turley, a liberal, published a blog Friday that said, “Twitter is now making the case for government action to monitor and control social media. The ultimate loser will be free speech.” Thursday night, President Trump reacted to some of the violence and looting happening in the city of Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, calling those responsible for the chaos “thugs” and threatened to cut loose the military in the city to get control over the situation. In a now hidden tweet, Trump said, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.” Twitter then hid the tweet, requiring users to click an arrow in order for it to be seen, stating that it broke the rules by “glorifying violence.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “I am still leery of the government intervening on social media,” Turley wrote. “Free speech has few advocates in this fight. It is primary a struggle between Twitter, Trump, and the Democrats over who controls such speech.” Turley said he did not agree with the content of Trump’s tweets about the Minneapolis protesters but that they should not be censored. “Twitter had the chance to admit error and return to neutrality in the interest of free speech. It is clearly more concerned with expressing its views than preserving its forum,” he said. “Frankly, I would not care about such self-inflicted wounds except that free speech will likely suffer the collateral damage from Twitter’s glorifying speech controls.” Turley is right. Twitter has had plenty of opportunities over the last few years to change their strategies involving the engagement of content posted to their site. Instead, they…

Twitter Tags White House Tweet With Warning Label Over Message It Says Broke Rules About ‘Glorifying Violence’

Published

on

Twitter continues to go at it with President Trump, even after he signed an executive order that labeled social media platforms as publishers, thus opening them up to lawsuits over silencing opinions. The White House poked Twitter and basically dared them to put a warning label on the president’s tweet concerning the violence in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd for a second time. They did. One would think that Twitter would get the message, but they aren’t. Guess they’ll have to get sued a bunch and lose a lot of money before they finally understand that folks, especially the president, aren’t going to take the censorship anymore. Here are more details from The Washington Examiner: Twitter said the White House account “violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence” after it repeated a tweet from the president that called the protesters “THUGS” and implied they could be shot. This happened after Trump first posted the tweet on his personal account early Friday morning, and Twitter placed a warning label on it. https://twitter.com/JTHVerhovek/status/1266363516153364480 “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” the tweet read. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” Twitter didn’t remove the tweets posted by the White House and from Trump’s account, but they are hidden and require users to click an arrow in order for them to be seen. There is a message placed over the tweets that says: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.” As you can see, liberals…
