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.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

Published

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
