CNN’s Jim Acosta Makes a Fool of Himself at the WH Medal of Freedom Ceremony

CNN’s Jim Acosta is in a running gun battle with April Ryan for the worst White House reporter currently on the beat.

Acosta’s self-aggrandizement and constant editorializing in briefings have become the butt of jokes everywhere. His false sense of grandeur has led him to write a book proclaiming how dangerous it is to “tell the truth” in America. Because Acosta’s life is so harrowing. Putting on makeup, saying whatever you want, and taking selfies with hecklers is life-threatening stuff and he wants you to know it.

If you follow sports at all, you probably heard about Tiger Woods winning his first Masters last month. It was a great moment in the country, if for no other reason that it brought a lot of different people from different backgrounds together to celebrate the same thing.

As is tradition at the White House, sports figures often receive the Medal of Freedom and Woods was the recipient yesterday. He becomes the fourth golfer to get the honor.

Ok, I have to admit, Trump plugging the ratings is pretty funny.

Anyway, during the ceremony, Jim Acosta decided it was a good time to yell a question at the President about…Michael Cohen.

Michael Cohen is currently in prison and nothing newsworthy surrounding him has happened in months. What exactly does he think the President would even have to say about that in this setting? Acosta is like your drunk uncle who starts making out with the wall after his fifth beer.

While the rest of the reporters respected that this was a ceremony for Tiger Woods and to celebrate the exceptionalism of Americans, Acosta was the only “reporter” to start yelling out questions like a dog yelping at people on the street.

More hilariously, he then went on CNN and bragged about his tough, hard-hitting question.

Acosta is not a journalist. He’s an activist seeking headlines. The entire purpose of all these stunts was to compile material for his new book and to boost his resume for that sweet new CNN show he desperately wants. Unfortunately for him, with CNN’s ratings collapse, I doubt they’ll be looking to put anymore dull, self-loving partisans in prime time. They’ve already got Chris Cuomo in that role.

Joe Biden’s Official 2020 Page Is Getting Creamed In Searches by Its Parody Site

Try as former VP and current 2020 hopeful Joe Biden might, there is no getting away from the “creepy uncle” image that he’s inadvertently crafted for himself. The internet being the internet, a parody site for Biden’s creepy exploits popped up, and it seems to be far more popular on Google than Biden’s 2020 page itself.

The parody site is chock full of images and clips of Biden doing what he’s famous for: leaning in from behind women and girls with his face uncomfortably close to theirs. It’s also laced with plenty of innuendo:

Uncle Joe is back and ready to take a hands-on approach to America’s problems! Joe Biden has a good feel for the American people and knows exactly what they really want deep down. He’s happy to open up and reveal himself to voters and will give a pounding to anybody who gets in his way!

The site also gives a rundown of Biden’s past exploits, including his yes vote for the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, his Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 which promoted mass incarceration.

The site also puts down a few quotes from the former VP himself, including the famous one about Obama that came off as more than a little degrading toward black people.

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” reads the quote on the site.

Even better, the site actually sells anti-Biden t-shirts.

While this may be all fun and games for us, for Biden’s team it’s a great loss. Not just because Biden’s actual 2020 site is being passed on by, but due to the fact that it spent more money than other campaigns to make the site look as good as possible according to CNBC:

The problem has also emerged despite the Biden campaign’s prolific spending on Google.

An online tracker maintained by the progressive digital advertising firm ACRONYM shows the Biden campaign has spent more than $360,000 on Google platforms, racking up more spending on the site than all the other candidates in the crowded field except Sen. Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

While his official campaign page is absent, Google does prominently display an official Biden advertisement for Biden-related searches.

Google hasn’t done anything to change the standing as of yet, but it just goes to show that the internet is the new wild west. You know never what’s going to happen.

Joy Behar and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX-2) debate on ‘The View’ – 5/6/19. Screen grab via ABC.

On Monday, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX-2) went into the lion’s den better known as ABC‘s “The View” program to discuss a variety of topics, including illegal immigration, his criticisms of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN-5), and rhetoric that President Trump uses that the co-hosts find offensive.

One of the highlights of the segment for me was Crenshaw’s calm but clear debunking of the false claim that Trump said white supremacists at the Charlottesville riots were “fine people.”

Newsbusters reports:

Finally, the View producers graciously let Meghan McCain get one conservative question in, asking why Democrats were reluctant to call out Rep. Ilhan Omar.

He boiled it down to partisan politics, which he noted also happens with his own party. Before he or McCain could elaborate, Joy Behar jumped in to defend Omar and bring the criticism back to Trump:

JOY BEHAR: I would be remiss if I didn’t bring up the fact that she’s a new congresswoman. On the right what we have is the President of the United States in Charlottesville saying that there are good people on both sides and people were yelling Jews will not replace us. They’re not good people on both sides–

CRENSHAW: Well in that same sentence when he said that he also said I’m definitely not referring to white nationalists.

BEHAR: Why do you apologize for him? He’s ridiculous! [rolls eyes]

CRENSHAW: You have to read to exactly what he said.

SUNNY HOSTIN: It was not in the same sentence. It was actually in a statement two days later.

CRENSHAW: No, it wasn’t. No it wasn’t.

Watch their back and forth in the video clip below:

The media-driven lies about Trump’s Charlottesville remarks have been debunked many times, yet the myth still persists. Thankfully, Crenshaw didn’t give in on the point as Behar and some of the other co-hosts continued to try and keep peddling the false claim.

Sen. Ted Cruz has been on a bit of a roll since his re-election win over Robert O’Rourke last year and the debut of his lumberjack beard. He has expanded his Jedi training to include not just ticking off people in Washington D.C. but also getting actors who are no longer in the limelight peeved.

This has been truly glorious to watch.

The latest example comes from Fox News via twitter, where former Seinfeld “comic” Jason Alexander, took umbrage with Sen. Cruz comment about one of  Cruz’s Senate colleagues POTUS campaign being a lil vapid.

From Fox News

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, last week invoked a Seinfeld line in a dig at 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., but days later, Jason Alexander, the actor who played George Costanza on the show, took issue with Cruz.

On Thursday, Cruz tweeted that Bennet’s campaign is a “Seinfeld campaign—about nothing,” in a reference to the show’s running joke that it essentially had no plot. The show ran from 1989 to 1998 and is seen as one of the most beloved series ever.

Cruz tweeted this on Thursday, May 2nd…

Michael Bennet’s campaign is a Seinfeld campaign—about nothing—that typifies the Left’s empty rage in 2020. In a decade in the Senate, he’s done very little…but he did stomp his foot & yell at me on Senate floor (which he features in fundraising emails).

Three days later Alexander came up with this gem

So @SenTedCruz has called @SenatorBennet a “Seinfeld campaign”, claiming it’s about nothing. I’ve met Bennett. He is a great man and real choice for POTUS. As for Cruz – the jerk store called and they’re running out of you. I say, the faster the better.

Good one Costanza. You are really showing your wit responding with a line someone else wrote for you in a show about nada. Thankfully for America, Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David did the writing on the show and you gurgled your way through their writing.

The only thing Ted Cruz was pointing out was that Michael Bennet’s Presidential run looks a bit bleak. Which it is. Just because Constanza has met him and thinks the Senator from Colorado is a nice guy, doesn’t mean his campaign is NOT about nothing and pretty boring. Just brushing up on Bennets time in the Senate would confirm this.

Constanza is probably too busy to look at policy material or other icky stuff like that being he is trying to become a world-class poker player. Just google some of those stellar results.

So congrats to Ted Cruz for his win last year against Robert, for keeping D.C. on its toes and getting people who were once in a show about nothing crying about something small. You are on a roll Senator.

Keep. It. Up.

Florida Sheriffs Deputized Under New ICE Program That Rolls Back Obama-Era Sanctuary City Policies

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announces the new ICE Service Warrant Program in Largo, Fla. on May 6, 2019 (Image: YouTube)

In 2014, the Obama administration began instituting policies that, coupled with federal court decisions, led to what is now known as “sanctuary cities” where state and local police found it difficult to hold criminal illegal aliens under Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainment waivers if their government leaders chose to ignore them.

On Monday, ICE announced a new program rolling some of those decisions from 2014 back with a new program that allows sheriffs to become deputized to serve ICE warrants to criminal illegal aliens while in custody.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced today the creation of a new collaborative program intended for local law-enforcement that wish to honor immigration detainers but are prohibited due to state and local policies that limit cooperation with the agency.

The Warrant Service Officer (WSO) program was launched during a signing ceremony with Lieutenant Governor of Florida Jeanette Núñez, Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, National Sheriffs’ Association Executive Director Jonathan Thompson and ICE Deputy Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) David Marin. The effort, also intended for rural jurisdictions that lack the budget and personnel resources to become 287(g) partners, has gained interest from several other local law-enforcement agencies, which also attended the ceremony, and additional signings are expected soon.

Once a WSO officer serves an administrative warrant and executes an arrest on behalf of ICE, the agency has 48 hours to conduct a transfer of custody unless an Intergovernmental Service Agreement exists. If ICE does not take the alien into custody within 48 hours, the individual must be released. WSO officers will only make arrests within the confines of the jail at which they work, and ICE will still issue immigration detainers with partner jurisdictions.

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, in announcing the new program, appeared at times relieved when discussing the new program — and exasperated when discussing why it was necessary.

Gualtieri drew a sharp distinction between people who are in the country illegally and those here illegally who are committing crimes, saying the latter is what the new program is about and that any discussion to the contrary is misleading fearmongering.

“There is no dilemma about people who are here illegally and committing crime — they are criminal illegals who must be removed from this country… This is entirely about public safety and law enforcement working together.”

Gualtieri noted there are approximately 1 million criminal illegal aliens currently in the United States. He said when the Obama administration began legislative moves that led to the rise of sanctuary city policies, it strained the relationship between local safety enforcement officers and ICE agents after 25 years of harmony between the two.

“Sheriffs were between a rock and a hard place,”Gualtieri said. “We had to choose between releasing criminals from our jails to commit more crimes and victimize our communities, or hold these criminal illegals and risk being sued and having to pay six figure judgments for civil rights violations.”

He noted a 2017 executive order signed by President Donald Trump helped alleviate some of the potential legal implications of sheriffs who chose to hold criminal illegal aliens, but that the new one-day training program was “easy to implement and legally unchallenged.”

Gualtieri also said that sheriffs and ICE have worked together for almost 2 years to create the program because Congress had refused to do the work of addressing the problem.

“We’ve had to come up with these solutions because Congress has not acted to pass the laws necessary to close the gaps identified in the 2014 court decisions,” he said. “And its obvious Congress has no will to fix anything related to illegal immigration.”

The Chronicled Collapse of James Comey

Westlake Legal Group james-comey-620x351 The Chronicled Collapse of James Comey Reckoning Politics Leak Investigations james comey IG Report Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story FBI doj corruption Comey Corruption bill barr Barack Obama Andrew McCabe

James Comey continues his defensive flailing apace, writing op-eds attacking Bill Barr and tweeting like a nine year old girl, with cryptic shots of him staring at trees.

Why? Because he knows he’s in trouble.

Victor Davis Hanson wrote a great piece on James Comey this week that I’d recommend everyone go read. It’s a well laid out, no holds bar synopsis of just how far down the rabbit hole the former FBI director has gone.

Here are a few of the highlights.

Comey seems to have become utterly unhinged by Donald Trump, especially when the president, in his thick Queens accent, scoffs in the vernacular—quite accurately, given the transgressions of the FBI hierarchy—about “crooked cops.” What an affront to Comey’s complexity, his subtlety, his sophistication, his feigned Hamlet-like self-doubt—at least as now expressed in his latest incarnation as Twitter’s Kahlil Gibran.

Comey’s sense of self-aggrandizement is part of why he’s so off putting. If you are going to be a scumbag, at least don’t lie about what you are. But Comey continually asserts himself as the only honest man left in America. He truly felt that it was his job to overstep norms, cast aside laws, and do whatever was needed to bring out his vision for the country.

It’s all rather scary when you really think about it, given the unelected nature of his former position.

Second, Attorney General William Barr is soon to receive a number of criminal referrals from Congress, inspectors general, and perhaps other prosecutors. He won’t allow collusion hysteria to cause him to recuse himself in the manner in which Jeff Sessions sidelined himself and elevated Rod Rosenstein.

In anticipation of that bleak reality, Comey seems to be prepping his own defense by a transparent preemptive attack on the very official who may soon calibrate Comey’s own legal exposure. Comey should at least offer a disclaimer that the federal prosecutor he is now attacking may soon be adjudicating his own future—if for no other reason than to prevent a naïf from assuming that Comey’s gambit of attacking Barr is deliberately designed to suggest later on that prosecutor Barr harbored a prejudicial dislike of likely defendant Comey.

This stuck out to me like a sore thumb.

By Comey’s own standard he set for Donald Trump, he is currently obstructing justice by attacking AG Bill Barr. We’ve been told over and over that going after the investigative authority investigating you is obstruction (and Comey is absolutely under investigation right now for leaking and his handling of the Trump-Russia probe). So what’s different here?

Of course, Comey would have no issue coming up with caveats to get assert he’s still above board. That’s the kind of leader he was. Obfuscation and double standards where his typical fare as FBI director.

Hanson’s article goes on to chronicle in great detail exactly all the bad, possibly illegal behavior Comey has trafficked in. He’s leaked like a sieve to the media. He ran informants against a Presidential campaign with no probable cause. He lied to a FISA judge multiple times. He lied to Congress about that FISA application when he said the Steele dossier was not the majority of the evidence presented. We know now that it was almost the entirety of the evidence.

The list of sins keeps going and going.

The only remaining mystery of this entire sordid mess is how the rotten onion will be peeled away. When indictments come down, will the likes of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson or James Baker or Bruce and Nellie Ohr be leveraged to inform on the likes of the Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and McCabe high stratum—that in turn will provide clarity about still higher officials to learn what Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Loretta Lynch, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, and Sally Yates knew and when they knew it?

In the meantime, expect James Comey to continue his frenetic pace on TV, radio, and in op-eds attacking William Barr and Donald Trump in deathly fear that his illegal behavior may finally have a legal accounting.

James Comey has completely collapsed, not because he was once an upstanding public servant, but because what he’s always been is now being revealed.

You can smell the fear in the air. Comey is running scared. He’s lashing out, attacking those who’ve formally called him a friend (like Bill Barr). For two years we heard that the walls were closing in on Donald Trump. In reality, there was no there, there.

But the reckoning is coming for a lot of Obama era officials who didn’t play by the rules and acted in a partisan manner. AG Barr should  only be emboldened by the attacks on him and I expect he’ll see his new investigations of these people through. The IG report is expected next month and word is that it’s going to be brutal.

While no one can go back in time and really make this right, the people who perpetrated it should still pay a price. That’s justice that must be served for the betterment of our governmental system. We can not have unelected bureaucrats deciding their goals override the electoral process.

Westlake Legal Group aoc-ocasio-cortez-3-620x413 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Who Knows What’s Best For All, Has Never Seen A Garbage Disposal garbage disposal Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats AOC America Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @ SXSW 2019 by nrkbeta, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

I debated whether or not this was even worth writing about, but after reading this over and over again, I realized there is a larger point that has to be made here.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had no idea until last night what a garbage disposal was or what it was for. She felt it was an important-enough discovery to share with her followers on Instagram – which in and of itself is curious, because she vowed to ease up on using social media because it is a “public health risk.”

If you don’t believe she would actually do this, there is proof.

It should be noted that Elaine Godfrey is not a member of a right-leaning media outlet that is hellbent on mocking AOC. She is a politics reporter for The Atlantic, which is notably not right-leaning.

AOC will get mocked for this, and possibly rightly so. She has two types of defenders out there. The first one are out in force saying “Well, ACTUALLY, there are very few homes in New York City that even have garbage disposals!” There are several others saying “I also never had one until I moved to D.C.”

However, as mock-worthy as it is, there is a much larger point that has to be made regarding this particular revelation of hers: She wants us to know that she knows what is best for the country and the world, but as her defenders are unintentionally pointing out, she has no experience in either.

Washington D.C. and New York City are not America. They are not the world. There are experiences that you have to have in order to make a judgment on something. That’s one of the more aggravating things about modern journalists, by the way, who have little real-world experience but write and preach from their newsprint about what is right and wrong. There is this belief that simply reading about something or watching a video about something or talking to someone about something is enough to count as experience.

It doesn’t.

AOC has no idea what a garbage disposal is. That’s incredible, and not just because it’s hilarious. It’s incredible because it is one of the most American experiences. Every family meal turns into a pop quiz over whether or not the disposal can handle the half a plate of food your kid didn’t eat or whether you just throw it away. And, if you do throw it away, is it something you should immediately take outside? Otherwise, it could make your kitchen reek.

AOC has never had that experience. It’s a little experience, one you may not really think about as you use your own, but it is an experience you have if you have been outside of New York City.

This freshman Congresswoman preaches from her office, her social media account, and in front of every crowd and camera she can get in front of and will tell you that how you live your life is absolutely and without question utterly wrong. But, how does she know that? Has she lived it? Has she experienced what you have?

It’s highly doubtful. She still claims that alleged issues with the VA are a right-wing conspiracy. She has never had a friend or family member forced to wait months for care or get completely ignored in the waiting room. She doesn’t know a family that has suffered the loss of a veteran relative who takes their own life because they can’t get the help they need.

This is not to say that AOC isn’t American. Her experience is uniquely American: A self-made woman who went from bartender to the most influential Democrat of the modern era. But to say she represents the American public or knows what is best for them is hubris at its finest. She does not have a clue what life is like outside of New York City, the individual and unique struggles that families across the country have to deal with.

You can’t say for sure that their way of life is wrong if you’ve never personally experienced it. Ignorance should not count as experience, but in her case, she likes to pretend it does.

During the Monday episode of his show on SiriusXM 125, David Webb had mentioned accusations from certain folks on the left that essentially made American culture out to be a bad thing, for the United States and the rest of the world. Wrapped up in the “culture” term was our economic system, our educational system and of course, our culture as culture. At the end, Mr Webb posed a question, “Is our culture bad?”

I just couldn’t let that one lie there. So, I called in to the show and actually got to speak with Mr Webb. What I told him was this…

I mentioned that both of us having been overseas, he as a Marine and I as a Soldier are very familiar with the sight on certain designated days, a line of foreign nationals stretching around the block occupied by the U.S. Embassy, waiting to apply for visas to come to the United States. Both of us have also been down Embassy Row in Washington DC. At no time have I or did Webb, ever recall seeing a line of Americans around any foreign embassy wanting to emigrate. Over in CID (Army Criminal Investigation Command) or in his case, NCIS, they’d call that a clue. Mr Webb also managed to add a few anecdotes of his own as sort of corollaries to my example. If you want to listen to these two segments, they are on Monday the 6th episode and start at 23 minutes and 2hrs, 15 minutes respectively.

Later on, in the last hour of the show, I managed to tee up with Mr Webb, the idea of revisiting the Davis-Bacon Act during the Infrastructure Bill discussions I wrote of in a previous article. More to follow on that.

You can catch David Webb, Monday-Friday, 0900-1100 EST. SiriusXM members can download broadcasts.

These are heady days indeed for Ilhan Omar. Scarcely a news cycle goes by without some mention of the Congresswoman from Minnesota.

Monday’s tweet, followed up by an interview with the Huffington Post, indicates that all of this media attention has left the anti-Semitic lawmaker feeling a bit too full of herself.

“This is a president who has come to power vilifying and demonizing immigrants and refugees. He proudly said we should halt Muslims from entering our country. It’s not a surprise that he finds his biggest nemesis in me,” Omar tweeted.

In March, speaking at a Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) banquet, Omar described the 9/11 attacks as “some people did something.” Her remarks triggered widespread condemnation and culminated in President Trump tweeting a powerful video of the attacks alongside Omar’s comment with the caption, “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”

Omar told the Huffington Post that, “He clearly has a disdain for black women who see themselves as equal to him.”

She added, “Clearly, I am a nightmare ― because he can’t stop really thinking about ways that he can continue to use my identity to marginalize our communities.”

Omar’s recent defense of Venezuelan dictator Nicholas Maduro and her attempts to place blame on the US for the country’s problems has led to criticism from both Vice President Mike Pence and State Secretary Mike Pompeo. Omar told “Democracy Now!” last week:

A lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela and we have sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today.

This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States.

Omar sees the great deal of media attention she receives as a reflection of how “important” and “influential” she has become. The reality is that any lawmaker who continually spews similar inflammatory, anti-Semitic, anti-American, defiant vitriol would receive the same attention.

Most Americans find it appalling that someone with such unpatriotic and disrespectful feelings toward our country sits in the U.S. House of Representatives.

President Trump is not afraid of her. Obviously, she is not his biggest nemesis. She is more like a child who deliberately acts out in order to attract negative attention.

When an individual makes shocking statements, people notice. Omar mistakes press attention over her poor behavior with how powerful she is.

Note to Ilhan Omar: You are not important. You are inappropriate, ungrateful and graceless.

CNN Buys Out a Hundred Employees as Ratings Collapse, Brian Stelter Hilariously Spins

CNN’s ratings have been in a free fall since the Mueller report. While MSNBC has seen some rebound though, CNN are now drawing less viewers per night than the Hallmark Channel, mundanely sitting in the mid-600,000s. Their numbers in the key demo are even worse, drawing only about 200,000 people.

It’s an unsustainable path for a network that’s collapsing and bloated beyond extreme.

This led to over a hundred employees accepting buyouts. When people started reporting that layoffs were coming at CNN, their Baghdad Bob stepped up to the plate with this hilarious spin.

Who wants to tell him?

You see Brian, companies don’t offer buyouts if they aren’t looking to cull their staffs. In fact, buyouts are the normal first step in the corporate world when it comes to layoffs. You give people a chance to voluntarily leave a sinking ship. If at the end of that there’s still too much dead weight, the involuntarily buyouts begin, i.e. those are called layoffs. The net result is the same and the purpose is the same.

CNN sold its soul to oppose Trump, peddling in conspiracy theories for years, all the while trying to spin their massive bias as objective news. This is why MSNBC is still doing ok. They are at least honest about what they are. Meanwhile, CNN gaslights the nation by assuring us that Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, and Chris Cuomo are just “news anchors.” People don’t like being lied to and those that want rabid Trump hatred can get an even more unhinged version of it on Rachel Maddow every night.

While Stelter obfuscates from the obvious, it’s clear CNN is in trouble. At this point, they’ve got to be betting everything on the 2020 election but even that might not be enough. More downsizing is inevitable.
