White House Press, You Only Think You Won … Trump Tells Fox’s Chris Wallace Conduct ‘Rules’ Coming for Press
NOTE TO WHITE HOUSE PRESS, YOU CAN BLAME CNN’S ACOSTA FOR ALL THE RULES THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO FOLLOW IN THE FUTURE …
The main stream media only thinks they have won, when on Friday a judge ruled that CNN reporter, Jim Acosta, press access be reinstated. Smile and smirk now Acosta et al, but you actual just lost. If the media bothered to report on the story, including the shills at establish Republican FOX News, you will have noted that the judge stated that this was not a First Amendment issue, it was supposedly a 5th Amendment of due process. What does that mean? Well, know that President Trump will be handing down rules of decorum of how the media will conduct themselves in the White House during press conferences, if they disobey the rules, they will be thrown out of the room and have their press credential revoked. The MSM has been put on notice. You will now be subject to a strict criteria of rules of conduct during press conferences, and if you do not behave you will be thrown out or they will end altogether.
So MSM, how do you think you won again?
President Trump seems to be already working on a plan to regulate press briefings, hours after a judge ruled an ousted CNN reporter’s press access be reinstated.
In an interview with Chris Wallace for Fox News Sunday, Trump brushed off Judge Timothy Kelly’s Friday ruling that CNN’s Jim Acosta have his Secret Service pass to the White House grounds be reinstated. Despite the ruling being a interim rejection of The White House argument that the president has “broad” discretion in which credentialed members of the press are allowed access to attend official briefings, Trump said, “It’s not a big deal,” and that his team is already working on “rules” for reporter conduct.
“We’re doing that, we’re going to write them up right now,” Trump told Wallace. “It’s not a big deal and if he misbehaves we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”
Pushing for specifics, Wallace asked if certain things are going to be considered “over the line” and Trump reiterated that these new rules are being written now, but that they will cover “decorum” and outline that reporters “can’t keep asking questions.”
In other words MSM, in the end, you lost. You can thank CNN’s Jim Acosta, his boorish behavior and his grand standing for your new set of specific rules that will govern your behavior. Gone will be the days of you getting follow up questions and a dialogue back and forth with Sarah Sanders. You will sit, raise your hands, ask one question, sit back down and shut the hell up. You have brought this upon yourselves. President Trump was asked about the judge’s ruling, he stated, “It’s not a big deal. And if he misbehaves, we’ll throw him out or we’ll stop the news conference.”
CNN Commentator Julia Ioffe Says, President Trump ‘Has Radicalized so Many More People Than ISIS ever Did’
THIS IS WHY CNN IS CALLED FAKE NEWS …
If you ever wondered why CNN is referred to as fake news, you need to look no further than the following story. CNN Commentator Julia Ioffe, who also is a correspondent for GQ and writes for The Washington Post, said in a segment on CNN’s “The Lead,” to the disbelief of other guests and to GOP officials on social media, that “this president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.” UNREAL. This is the kind of crap that CNN allows to be put on air. This is what CNN passes off as fact as some kind of debate. Of course it makes no difference that the Pittsburgh synagogue killer, he hated Trump. Even the Daily Beast wrote, the ‘Pittsburgh Synagogue Suspect Robert Bowers Hated Trump—for Not Hating Jews’.
A note to Julie Ioffe and the Leftist moonbats at CNN, Daniel Pearl and James Foley was asked for comment regarding this foolish comment, passed off as fact, sadly he was unavailable for comment. So were the following HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE on infinitum.
They would compare radical Islam and terrorism to Trump and his supporters. Make no mistake about it America, the MSM is talking about you. They not only hate Trump, they hate you. Welcome to the insane LEFT and their willingness to say anything, because they have nothing to say.
A CNN commentator said Monday that President Trump is worse than the Islamic State, though she promptly took the words back when people began responding on social media.
Julia Ioffe, who also is a correspondent for GQ and writes for The Washington Post, said in a segment on CNN’s “The Lead,” to the disbelief of other guests and to GOP officials on social media, that “this president has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”
She elaborated that Mr. Trump’s radicalization tools are “the way he talks, the way he allows, and winks and nods.”
On the segment, fellow panelists David Urban and Mona Charen quickly responded, with Mr. Urban verbally rolling his eyes and saying over her explanation that “that’s impossible to say that.”
BTW.apology not accepted. The days of this divisive, over the top nonsense need to come to an end. A once proud news organization, CNN is now a joke.
Second Kavanaugh Accuser Deborah Ramirez Refusing to Testify Under Oath to Senate Judiciary Committee
WHAT A SHOCK, SECOND ACCUSER REFUSES TO TESTIFY UNDER OATH TO SENATE …
As reported at the Washington Examiner, the second Kavanaugh accuser, Deborah Ramirez, refuses to testify to the Senate Judiciary Committee about her accusations made against SCOTUS nominee. This comes as little surprise that she would testify under oath to the 35 year old sketchy accusations that she made against judge Kavanaugh while that were students at Yale that the New Yorker published.
I think it is fair to say how credible this story was. Even the New York Times would not go forward with it.
Deborah Ramirez, a Yale University classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, is refusing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee about her accusation against Kavanaugh, a GOP lawmaker said Tuesday.
Ramirez lawyer John Clune tweeted Tuesday that “We have been working hard to cooperate with the Senate Judiciary Committee…and they have refused to meet all scheduled appointments.” He said Ramirez wants an FBI investigation, not a congressional investigation, and is willing to “swear to the FBI under penalty of perjury.”
A top Judiciary Committee GOP aide told the Washington Examiner in response to the Clune claim, “The Ramirez legal team has declined to comply with the committee’s established process and investigation and seem to prefer working through the media.”
Clune is scheduled to appear on CNN tonight.
Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who sits on the committee, said a lawyer for Ramirez told committee staff she would not speak to them about her allegation that Kavanaugh flashed his naked groin in her face during an alcohol-laden party their freshman year. Ramirez made the accusation in a blockbuster Sunday night New Yorker story.
53 Year Old Accuser Deborah Ramirez Comes Forward With Allegations Against Kavanaugh … Was Drunk, 35 Years Ago, Cannot Really Remember & No One Can Corroberate Story
ANOTHER WOMAN COMES FORWARD WITH A 35 YEAR OLD STORY THAT NOT EVEN THE NEW YORK TIMES THOUGHT WAS FIT TO PRINT …
The New Yorker published a story on Sunday night of a second woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of lewd behavior from some 35 years ago while in college. Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer have released a report in the New Yorker from Deborah Ramirez, accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. The salacious story includes a dildo and penises. And once again, we have a completely drunk woman at a party, vague memories and not one person who supposedly atteneded the party could confirm Kavanaugh was at the party. The 53-year-old accuser Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker that she was initially hesitant to speak out because she was drunk at the time and her memory had gaps. Then miraculously after 35 years she spent six days “carefully assessing her memories” and consulting with her attorney before going public. Just like that she could remember.
Shameful. Not even the New York Times would touch this story because they could not find anyone to corroborate the story. Neither did the New Yorker. In other words, journalism is now considered just printing the vague recollections of accusation and rumor. But this is what it has come to. Piling on and making stuff up at all cost by the Left and Democrats. This is truly sad.
The woman at the center of the story, Deborah Ramirez, who is fifty-three, attended Yale with Kavanaugh, where she studied sociology and psychology. Later, she spent years working for an organization that supports victims of domestic violence. The New Yorker contacted Ramirez after learning of her possible involvement in an incident involving Kavanaugh. The allegation was conveyed to Democratic senators by a civil-rights lawyer. For Ramirez, the sudden attention has been unwelcome, and prompted difficult choices. She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident. In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. Ramirez is now calling for the F.B.I. to investigate Kavanaugh’s role in the incident. “I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” she said.
After 35 years and drunk at the time, suddenly she had an epiphany after 6 days of being coached by her lawyer …
Ramirez acknowledged that there are significant gaps in her memories of the evening, and that, if she ever presents her story to the F.B.I. or members of the Senate, she will inevitably be pressed on her motivation for coming forward after so many years, and questioned about her memory, given her drinking at the party.
And yet, after several days of considering the matter carefully, she said, “I’m confident about the pants coming up, and I’m confident about Brett being there.”
For some reason, even though the New Yorker had not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party, they printed this story anyhow.
The New Yorker has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party. The magazine contacted several dozen classmates of Ramirez and Kavanaugh regarding the incident. Many did not respond to interview requests; others declined to comment, or said they did not attend or remember the party. A classmate of Ramirez’s, who declined to be identified because of the partisan battle over Kavanaugh’s nomination, said that another student told him about the incident either on the night of the party or in the next day or two. The classmate said that he is “one-hundred-per-cent sure” that he was told at the time that Kavanaugh was the student who exposed himself to Ramirez. He independently recalled many of the same details offered by Ramirez, including that a male student had encouraged Kavanaugh as he exposed himself. The classmate, like Ramirez, recalled that the party took place in a common room on the first floor in Entryway B of Lawrance Hall, during their freshman year. “I’ve known this all along,” he said. “It’s been on my mind all these years when his name came up. It was a big deal.” The story stayed with him, he said, because it was disturbing and seemed outside the bounds of typically acceptable behavior, even during heavy drinking at parties on campus. The classmate said that he had been shocked, but not necessarily surprised, because the social group to which Kavanaugh belonged often drank to excess. He recalled Kavanaugh as “relatively shy” until he drank, at which point he said that Kavanaugh could become “aggressive and even belligerent.”
In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and one other classmate, Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events: “We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not. The behavior she describes would be completely out of character for Brett. In addition, some of us knew Debbie long after Yale, and she never described this incident until Brett’s Supreme Court nomination was pending. Editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them that we never saw or heard about this.”
NY Times Reports Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein Suggested Secretly Recording Trump & Discussed 25th Amendment (Update: Rosenstein Denies)
THE FOX IN THE HEN HOUSE …
The New York Times is reporting that deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit. The information is reported to have come from memos written by Andrew McCabe, then the acting FBI director. McCabe declined to comment. According to a lawyer for Mr. McCabe, his clients memos have been turned over to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, in the investigation into whether Trump associates conspired with Russia’s election interference. Interesting.
The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit.
Mr. Rosenstein made these suggestions in the spring of 2017 when Mr. Trump’s firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director plunged the White House into turmoil. Over the ensuing days, the president divulged classified intelligence to Russians in the Oval Office, and revelations emerged that Mr. Trump had asked Mr. Comey to pledge loyalty and end an investigation into a senior aide.
Mr. Rosenstein was just two weeks into his job. He had begun overseeing the Russia investigation and played a key role in the president’s dismissal of Mr. Comey by writing a memo critical of his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. But Mr. Rosenstein was caught off guard when Mr. Trump cited the memo in the firing, and he began telling people that he feared he had been used.
Mr. Rosenstein made the remarks about secretly recording Mr. Trump and about the 25th Amendment in meetings and conversations with other Justice Department and F.B.I. officials. Several people described the episodes, insisting on anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. The people were briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by F.B.I. officials, including Andrew G. McCabe, then the acting bureau director, that documented Mr. Rosenstein’s actions and comments.
If true, Rosenstein needs to be fired immediately. But is it true and one might want to consider the source of this leak. Was it McCabe or maybe the special counsel. Regardless, a special counsel needs to be put in place to investigate the deep state and all that they have done to thwart the Trump presidency and over throw a presidential election.
A question does arise as to why the New York Times would report such a story. I would ask why? Why now? The Times as been a part of the liberal media’s attack on Trump. Why would they report such a story now? Who thinks this is an attempt to rile up Trump so that he fires Rosenstein prior to the 2018 midterms. Isn’t this what was wanted all along? Then the NY Times and the rest of the liberal media gets to cry obstruction of justice. The deep state and the media are very slick and despicable. Do not think they will attempt anything to overthrow this president.
UPDATE I: From the Gateway Pundit, following the New York Times released its report, Andrew McCabe made a statement through his lawyer Michael Bromwich. Interesting, he did not deny The NY Times report.
“Andrew McCabe drafted memos to memorialize significant discussions he had with some high level officials and preserved them so he would have an accurate contemporaneous record of those discussions. When he was interviewed by the Special Counsel more than a year ago, he gave all of his memos — classified and unclassified — to the Special Counsel’s office,” Michael Bromwich said in an email.
UPDATE II: Rosenstein denies the report … The Story Is ‘Inaccurate and Factually Incorrect’.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday denied a New York Times report claiming that he suggested last year that he secretly record Donald Trump in the White House and discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.
“The New York Times‘ story is inaccurate and factually incorrect. I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the [Justice] Department and are advancing their own personal agenda,” Rosenstein said in a statement. “But let me be clear about this: based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”
