New York Mayor Has Reporter Removed for Asking a Simple Question

Published

on

Funny how when the Trump White House bars a reporter from an event after she refused to leave the Oval Office and was loud, rude, and relenting in her questions, the media melted down for a week. But when Democrat mayor Bill DeBlasio has a reporter removed from his sight for asking a question he didn’t feel like answering, there’s hardly a peep.

The media is exactly like the left-wing pundits they constantly promote and make excuses for. They’re convinced that they’re the victims of an evil administration who calls them out for their propagandic lies.

What they refuse to acknowledge is that the American people are the ones who lost their trust in them long ago, and Trump has just tapped into that.

They act like Trump is going after journalists in the fashion of a fascist dictator (perhaps because they’re determined to paint literally everything he does as reminiscent of fascist dictators, despite him systematically scaling back the power and expanse of the federal government).

In reality, no President in recent memory has ever been slammed so much by the press, and yet all he does is laugh at them. Where are the journalists in jail, the networks shut down, the laws hindering free speech? What kind of authoritarian just lets the press bash him without responding like this?

Naturally, when it comes to Democrat politicians, there’s a massive double-standard. They have their fair share of run-ins with the press, but the mainstream outlets barely care about that, now don’t they? Obama was literally jailing reporter’s sources and they hardly batted an eye. So much for standing by your colleagues.

The Hill reports:

Kevin Sheehan, a reporter for the New York Post, reportedly approached [New York mayor Bill] de Blasio on Sunday at the Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan and asked for his reaction to a story in the Post about his meetings with lobbyists, according to the Post.

Members of NYPD security then approached the reporter and took him away from the mayor, the Post reported. The reporter was reportedly escorted a half-block away from where he approached de Blasio.

The Post reported over the weekend that de Blasio’s deputy mayors, commissioners and aides had 136 meetings with lobbyists over a three-month period this spring. Lobbyists from the real estate industry “dominated the talks,” the Post reported.

If the purpose of a free press is to hold politicians accountable–which it is–that means holding Trump and de Blasio accountable.

If you have a double-standard when it comes to freedom of the press, than you don’t really care about preserving the First Amendment. You care about preserving your preferred, ideological agenda. And that means you, along with politicians, need to be held accountable as well.

Teachers Shot by Police with Air Pistols During Shooter Drill Speak Out

The Sheriff’s Department stood by their decision, however, essentially saying that the teachers were shot with the air pistols because they didn’t act quickly enough, like a dog being smacked with a newspaper.

mass shooting

The idea that we, as Americans, must participate in “active shooter” drills is spooky enough, but one law enforcement agency is taking things too far…and teachers are speaking out. The horror and confusion of an active shooter situation is unfathomable for many of us.  Suddenly, at work or school or the subway, the deafening report of gunfire would be instantaneously confusing and oppressive.  Our fight or flight instincts would kick in, sending us to the floor with the possibility of altered auditory senses.  From there, the terror truly begins as we play out any number of scenarios in our heads. These instances are terrifying and harrowing in ways that only those who have lived through them can understand. Active shooter drills, on the other hand, are meant to be learning experiences.  Sure, some urgency is needed to provide us the opportunity necessary to develop the muscle memory desired, but do we really have to shoot teachers with pellet guns in order to get the point across? That’s what one group of educators is pondering today. An Indiana teachers union is demanding change to active shooter drill protocols after teachers at an elementary school reported that they had been injured when they were shot by Airsoft guns during a recent exercise. “During active shooter drill, four teachers at a time were taken into a room, told to crouch down and were shot execution style with some sort of projectiles — resulting in injuries to the extent that welts appeared, and blood was drawn,” a statement from the Indiana State Teachers Association on Wednesday said. Association members said they were injured during the drill at Monticello’s Meadowlawn Elementary School, according to the statement. The drill was conducted by the White County Sheriff’s Department, which defended the methods it used. White County Sheriff Bill Brooks said…

American Schools Are Failures: Most Americans Don’t Know What Bill of Rights Is

The poll tends to prove that liberals have succeeded in undermining America though the thorough destruction of the quality of our education.

Bill of rights

A new study of Americans finds that few have any idea what freedoms are protected by the first ten amendments of the Constitution nor do they know these amendments are called the Bill of Rights. It just shows that the liberals controlling our system of miseducation have succeeded in undermining this country and that our schools are some of America’s biggest enemies. Our schools are failures at teaching and turning out Americans, certainly. But they are a great success at turning out morons and sheep, and this poll proves it. The poll posted to StudyFinds.com finds that most Americans have some vague idea that our First Amendment rights are under attack, but when asked to detail just what the First Amendment is, most had no idea how to respond. The new poll found that six in ten Americans thought our freedom of speech was under attack. That is a good thing… though it should be ten in ten. But, still, at least a majority understand that the left is attacking our rights. Unfortunately, the study also found that most couldn’t name what rights the First Amendment covers nor could they even say how many Amendments make up the Bill of Rights, nor even say what that name even meant. “Of the 2,000 adults who took part in the poll, half thought that ‘liberty’ is one of the five freedoms protected by the First Amendment, while nearly half (49 percent) believed ‘the pursuit of happiness’ was included,” the poll said. “Thankfully, only 3 percent named ‘life’ as one of the protected freedoms.” I am not sure why the folks at StudyFinds thought it was “thankfully” that only a small percentage thought “life” was in the First Amendment but be that as it may. The poll also found that only 26 percent…
