Judge Rules in Favor of Jim Acosta in White House Press Pass Dispute

Jim Acosta

After a week of incessant drama and mainstream media bickering, there has been closure in the case of Jim Acosta versus Donald Trump…at least for round one.

Acosta, a CNN White House reporter that has staked the future of his career on goading President Trump into malfeasance, was recently relieved of his press credentials for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue after an ugly altercation with a White House intern.  During the incident, Acosta refused to yield the microphone to the young woman after he was instructed to cease his badgering, going so far as to put his hands on her in a way that elicited a dramatic reaction.

The White House immediately took action, revoking Acosta’s press pass on grounds that he accosted this young woman.

Now, after a week of intensely public arguing, Acosta will soon be back in the White House thanks to a judge’s ruling.

CNN’s Jim Acosta has returned to his post at the White House following a court ruling that forced the Trump administration to reinstate his press pass.

Now President Trump is vowing to create “rules and regulations” for how White House reporters act. He says “you have to practice decorum” at the White House.
“It’s not a big deal,” Trump told Fox News in an interview on Friday. “What they said, though, is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct, etcetera. We’re going to write them up. It’s not a big deal. If he misbehaves, we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”
Friday’s ruling by federal judge Timothy J. Kelly was an initial victory for CNN in its lawsuit against Trump and several top aides. The suit alleges that CNN and Acosta’s First and Fifth Amendment rights were violated by last week’s suspension of his press pass.
This is merely the latest bit of turbulence when it comes to the White House and their relationship with the mainstream media.

Florida Governor Makes Good on Promise to Pardon COVID ‘Criminals’

There is justice in The Sunshine State.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made it very, very clear that The Sunshine State is not, and was not ever, in favor of curbing Americans’ freedoms on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Sure, there were some locales, (like Miami), who imposed curfews and other measures meant to crack down on some of the over partying during Spring Break, but even those moves were given the side-eye by DeSantis. Now the Florida leader is taking this sentiment a step farther. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and the state’s Clemency Board granted pardons Wednesday for Floridians with lingering fines issued for violating mask mandates implemented by local governments. “This action is necessary so that we can recover, have a good transition to normal operations, and also just a recognition that a lot of this stuff was way, way overboard,” DeSantis said. Democratic candidate for governor Nikki Fried was the only member on the board to oppose the pardons, according to local news outlet Fox 13. “I voted today to uphold our laws, while our so-called pro-law enforcement governor is actively encouraging people to break the law with politically motivated stunts like this,” Fried said in a statement following a Wednesday clemency board meeting. DeSantis is widely believed to have grander political aspirations, and this high-profile declaration of liberty is undoubtedly going to benefit his PR strategy as well.

Biden Demands that Americans Snitch on their ‘Radicalized’ Neighbors

Joe Biden is demanding that liberals snitch on their neighbors who he says are “radicalized” and dangerous.

Joe Biden is demanding that liberals snitch on their neighbors who he says are “radicalized” and dangerous. Biden is demanding that Americans be on the look-out for “radicalized” behavior and to call the police when they think they see it. Of course, by “radicalized,” he means being conservative and white. In a recent conversation with the press, a senior administration official explained the importance of stopping politically fueled violence before it spreads. The teleconference discussion was posted to the White House website. “We will work to improve public awareness of federal resources to address concerning or threatening behavior before violence occurs,” the official said according to the White House posting. The official cited the Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something say something” campaign to help stop radical Islamic terror as a domestic possibility. “This involves creating contexts in which those who are family members or friends, or co-workers know that there are pathways and avenues to raise concerns and seek help for those who they have perceived to be radicalizing and potentially radicalizing towards violence,” the official added. But instead of Islamic terror, Biden thinks we have to worry about evil white people. As Breitbart News reminded us all: Biden began his presidency with a stark warning in his inauguration speech about the “rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront, and we will defeat.” On June 1, Biden described the threat from “white supremacy” as the “most lethal threat to the homeland today.” The Biden administration said it would also work with large technology companies on “increased information sharing” to help combat radicalization. “Any particular tech company often knows its own platform very well,” the official noted. “But the government sees things — actually, threats of violence — across platforms. They see the…
