    President Trump should have taken a page from Barack Obama’s playbook when he faced White House reporters at the press conference that CNN’s grandstanding Jim Acosta hijacked.

    Constitutional attorney and conservative radio host Mark Levin is weighing in on CNN's lawsuit against the White House. CNN filed the lawsuit today on behalf of correspondent Jim Acosta. His press credentials were pulled last week after he got into a physical altercation with a White House intern over a microphone. "I just read CNN's lawsuit against the administration over Jim Acosta. It's a very weak case, but if they get before an Obama or Clinton district judge, who knows. CNN hired Ted Olson's firm, and he has signed onto the lawsuit. Olson was hired for a few reasons: 1....

    (CNN)First lady Melania Trump, in a remarkable move carried out by her spokeswoman, publicly pushed for the ouster of deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel. "It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that (Ricardel) no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House," the first lady's communications director Stephanie Grisham said in a statement on Tuesday. The statement amounted to a stunning public rebuke by a first lady of a senior official serving in her husband's administration. It came after reports surfaced earlier Tuesday indicating Ricardel would be pushed out of her post after...

    The White House and President Trump took some heat on Saturday after it was announced that he would not make a previously scheduled visit to a cemetery in France for Americans killed in World War I due to inclement weather. Trump arrived in France on Friday to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, along with first lady Melania Trump. They'd planned to visit Ainse-Marne American Cemetery in Belleau, France. The president was expected to lay a wreath and observe a moment of silence. The first couple was supposed to travel to the site via helicopter,...

    The New York Times, which has long been an anti-American newspaper, has now somehow found in the First Amendment a right by CNN reporter Jim Acosta to behave in the manner he did last week, by pushing aside a White House aide who was a woman as she tried to grab the mic and pass it to another reporter wanting to ask a question. The state-controlled news outlet that pushed such "righteous" people on us as Bill and Hillary Clinton and other sexual deviants, as well as promote the #MeToo movement, decided to fire off defending Jim Acosta and his...

    If this type of disgraceful display from the media continues, the President and his Press Secretary should no longer conduct news conferences. What happened this week should never be allowed to happen again. The President’s first post midterm election news conference was a rowdy spectacle at the White House. It was an 87-minute marathon with almost universally hostile questions from liberal reporters and combative answers from the President. The entire episode exposed the horrible relationship that exists between the mostly liberal media and President Trump. This type of craziness would have never happened during the Obama presidency. Of course, the...

    CNN's Jim Acosta was talking with Anderson Cooper. Acosta told Cooper that he did not touch the White House intern/aide when she tried to take the mic away from him. CNN showed part of the controversial video clip during their segment, but not the part where Acosta's hand/arm made contact with the White House staffer. They did make contact, but it does not seem like Acosta was trying to hurt anyone or anything like that. It was still very unprofessional behavior. We must all act more respectful when it comes to this stuff. Video on the source.

    Snoop Dogg shared a series of videos online Wednesday of his recent visit to the White House, where he smoked a blunt and lit into President Trump. The rapper can be seen saying in one clip posted on Instagram that while other Americans were “doing all this other bullshit” amid the midterm elections, he decided to temporarily camp out nearby the White House to smoke, saying: “F--- the president.” Snoop Dogg could be seen in other clips walking throughout what appears to be Lafayette Park while talking to fans with his blunt in hand.

    CNN's Jim Acosta just lost his hard pass White House credentials. This is after today's incident in which he would not allow a female White House aide to take the microphone from him when President Trump was done speaking to Acosta.

I know he’s just doing his job. (Sorry this video is not rightside up)" Source contains video of Jim Acosta giving credentials...

    Yet another convert to Islam gets the idea that his new religion commands him to commit treason and mass murder. Despite the fact that this is a frequently occurring phenomenon, authorities have nowhere shown the slightest degree of interest in studying it. “One of his bombs went off, but SC man had planned to do much worse, prosecutor says,” by Noah Feit, The State, October 29, 2018: He built bombs, planted them at various locations, and set one of them off. That is what led Wesley Dallas Ayers to federal court Monday, where he pleaded guilty to multiple charges related...

    1 Nov 20181,555 BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox say they haven’t decided whether they will visit the White House if invited by President Donald Trump. Manager Alex Cora said Thursday he wants to use the platform he has as a World Series champion in the right way. A native Puerto Rican, Cora has been outspoken about the need for help on the island since it was devastated by Hurricane Maria. The traditional White House visit has become increasingly partisan, with some players declining to make the trip because of their political views.

    Washington Examiner ^ | Nov. 1, 2018
    The White House is curtailing press access to President Trump's South Lawn departures to reduce "jostling and general chaos" before Trump boards helicopters for out-of-town trips. Trump's habit of speaking to reporters has resulted in near-daily scrambles as journalists seek the best spot along a "rope line" near the Rose Garden. Reporters, cameramen, and boom-holders gather north of the West Wing for his departures, and when doors open, they rush toward the spot of asphalt, restrained only by their sense of fairness as they push past peers. Now, a small group of journalists making up the rotating in-town "pool" will...

    After Barack Obama was elected in 2008, the no-longer-printed Newsweek magazine declared in a cover story “We are all socialists now.” This month, as WND reported, a new poll examining the political leanings of the next generation of leaders found 31 percent of millennials identify as “democratic socialist” or “socialist” while 40 percent of men in that age group say the same. Now, the Trump administration is offering an educational resource through its Council of Economic Advisors that asks whether or not socialism has ever delivered on its promises. It’s an empirical question, contends the 72-page report “The Opportunity Cost...

    Executive Summary October 2018 Coincident with the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth, socialism is making a comeback i n American political discourse. Detailed policy proposals from self - declared s ocialists are gaining support in Congress and among much of the electorate . It is unclear, of course, exactly what a typical voter has in mind when he or she thinks of “socialism . ” B ut economists generally agree about how to define socialism, and they have devoted enormous time and resources to studying its costs and benefits. With an eye on this broad body of literature, t...

    Then there was Thursday’s spectacle in the Oval Office. Once again, his stream-of-consciousness commentary veered from nonsense to common sense and included references to the 13th Amendment, which forbids slavery, and his feeling of being “programmed” as a black man to support only liberal politicians. A black anchor on CNN accused West of putting on a “minstrel show,” a black pundit on the same panel called him an “attention whore” and “the token Negro of the Trump administration.” Another chipped in with, “Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read.” A black New York Times columnist said the White...
