Bully boy Jim bump!
A furious CNN national security and legal analyst Susan Hennessey tweeted:
(Pulling Acostas press pass) is a disgraceful and unacceptable attack on a free and independent press.
Excuse me, Susan, but where was CNNs outrage when Barack Obama unleashed the US Justice system on a Fox reporter?
REMEMBER THIS?-At his recent comeback appearance, Obama lacerated Pres Trump, saying: I complained plenty about Fox News, but you never heard me call them enemies of the people. (Source comeback rally at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign).
REALITY CHECKN-o-o-o-o, Obama didnt do that....he just unleashed the full force of the DOJ, in the person of AG Eric Holder, to pounce on Fox reporter James Rosen AND to intimidate Rosens family. Holder and Obama issued a court order for Fox News reporter James Rosens emails, that labeled Rosen a criminal co-conspirator. More likely Fox News said things or published stories Obama didnt like.......or got too close to unveiling his criminality.
Obama and AG Holder did more than seize a Fox News reporters emails while suggesting he was a criminal co-conspirator in a leak case it did so under one of the most serious wartime laws in America, the Espionage Act. It is now well known that the Obama justice department has prosecuted more government leakers under the 1917 Espionage Act than all prior administrations combined - in fact, double the number of all such prior prosecutions.
But as the controversy over the Obama and Holders pursuit of the phone records of AP reporters illustrated, this obsessive fixation in defense of secrecy also targets, and severely damages, journalists specifically and the news-gathering process in general.
New revelations emerged yesterday in the Washington Post that are perhaps the most extreme yet when it comes to the DOJs attacks on press freedoms. It involves the prosecution of State Department adviser Stephen Kim, a naturalized citizen from South Korea who was indicted in 2009 for allegedly telling Fox News chief Washington correspondent, James Rosen, that US intelligence believed North Korea would respond to additional UN sanctions with more nuclear tests - something Rosen then reported. Kim did not obtain unauthorized access to classified information, nor steal documents, nor sell secrets, nor pass them to an enemy of the US.
Instead, the DOJ alleges that he merely communicated this innocuous information to a journalist - something done every day in Washington - and, for that, this arms expert and long-time government employee faces more than a decade in prison for espionage.
The focus of a Post report is that the Obama DOJs surveillance of Rosen extended far beyond even what Obama did to AP reporters. The FBI tracked Rosens movements in and out of the State Department, traced the timing of his calls, and - most amazingly - obtained a search warrant to read two days worth of his emails, as well as all of his emails with Kim. In this case, said the Post, investigators did more than obtain telephone records of a working journalist suspected of receiving the secret material. It added that court documents in the Kim case reveal how deeply investigators explored the private communications of a working journalist.
But what makes this revelation particularly disturbing is that Obamas DOJ, in order to get this search warrant, insisted that Foxs Rosen - a journalist - committed serious crimes. The DOJ specifically argued that by encouraging his source to disclose classified information - something investigative journalists do every day - Rosen himself broke the law.
Describing an affidavit from FBI agent Reginald Reyes filed by the DOJ, the Post reports [emphasis added]: Reyes wrote that there was evidence Rosen had broken the law, at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator. That fact distinguishes his case from the probe of the AP, in which the news organization is not the likely target. Using italics for emphasis, Reyes explained how Rosen allegedly used a covert communications plan and quoted from an e-mail exchange between Rosen and Kim that seems to describe a secret system for passing along information. . . .
However, it remains an open question whether its ever illegal, given the First Amendments protection of press freedom, for a reporter to solicit information. No reporter, including Rosen, has been prosecuted for doing so. Under US law, it is not illegal to publish classified information. That fact, along with the First Amendments guarantee of press freedoms, is what has prevented the US government from ever prosecuting journalists for reporting on what the US government does in secret. This newfound theory of the Obama DOJ - that a journalist can be guilty of crimes for soliciting the disclosure of classified information - is a means for circumventing those safeguards and criminalizing the act of investigative journalism itself.
These latest revelations show that this is not just a theory but one put into practice, as the Obama and Holder submitted official court documents accusing a journalist of committing crimes by doing this. -Snip-
Obama and Holder wouldnt lie to a court of law. Would they?

LonePalm, le Républicain du verre cassé (The Broken Glass Republican)
Mark Levin said, at 6:45pm last night on his show, that what happened wasn’t assault. Obviously Rush didn’t listen. Mark did 15mins on that incident.
Republican control 32 state Senates. So, without the progressive 17 amendment, there would be 64 Republicans in the US Senate.
Agree. Calling this an assault cheapens what the word assault really means. However, Jim needs some timeout in the corner for his past and present behavior. WH should ban JA, tell CNN to send someone else in his place. Make it about Jim.
In this Deplorable House, parents as teachers is everyday. As ConservaTeen would say the public indoctrinating center (aka public school) is child abuse.
Rush made a great point again. If gerrymandering resulted in Republicans winning Senate seats, how is it that two Democrats competed for the same Senate seat in California?
Rush’s speech on what children are being taught was unusually good today, as was his speech about young people who attend “graduate schools of journalism.”
Perhaps they were the same speech, I’m not sure.
I’d love for my (Conservative) daughter who’s a freshman in college to hear them.
You got it.
