  • Analysis: Why Was Andrew McCabe Abruptly Removed From His Post?

    s you already know, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe -- against whom President Trump has fulminated in tweets -- no longer occupies his position. CNN's Jim Acosta initially reported that the departure was 'mutual' and done on McCabe's terms, but multiple other networks confirmed that McCabe had be ousted. . . snip Remember, Wray had reportedly threatened to quit rather than get pushed around by Trump's anti-McCabe raging. But now he's seen something so significant that it convinced him McCabe couldn't remain in his previous position for a moment longer -- and that something is apparently connected to the IG's...

    Yes, CNN staffers have lost their minds. One year of Donald Trump’s America and he’s defeated them as thoroughly the New England Patriots beat, well, just about anybody. We’re a year into the most-biased U.S. media in history – tracking at 90 percent biased against President Trump. But there appears to be lasting damage to journalists, their professionalism and even their ability to pretend they are rational. In just one week, CNN staffers blamed President Trump for a man who tried to harm people at their headquarters, ran a piece celebrating cuckolding (not kidding!) and questioned whether the president deserved...

    CNN’s senior White House correspondent took his anti-Trump road show onto the international stage Thursday, following the Commander-in-Chief to Europe to harass the President over his “America First” foreign policy. The President was speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week, touting his “America First” agenda while speaking with foreign leaders and business executives from the world’s largest corporations. Jim Acosta ✔ @Acosta After Trump says of Davos “It’s been really successful...” I asked him how he can be America First if he’s rubbing elbows with big wigs. He did not respond.

    In what may be a first, President Trump thanked longtime media nemesis “Crazy Jim Acosta” early Tuesday -- for seemingly acknowledging that the end of the government shutdown was a win for the Trump White House. Even Crazy Jim Acosta of Fake News CNN agrees: “Trump World and WH sources dancing in end zone: Trump wins again...Schumer and Dems caved...gambled and lost.” Thank you for your honesty Jim! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 23, 2018 Despite Trump’s expression of gratitude toward the CNN White House correspondent, Acosta appeared to just be quoting the White House and Trump surrogates. “Trump...

    On January 17, after much anticipation, President Donald Trump released the winners of his fake news awards. CNN was a big winner of the night, clinching several awards. CNN’s Jim Acosta was part of a panel discussion at the Newseum when the awards were announced; Politico’s Cristiano Lima, who came to ask a question, informed the room that the awards were live, albeit inaccessible to many due to the high traffic to the RNC’s site. Acosta appeared to not be amused, but gave his two-cents anyway, claiming that Trump is the real king of fake news, despite his network’s multiple...

    FULL TITLE: ‘Truly frightening’: Mika feels even more dread after White House doc confirms Trump’s in ‘excellent’ health For MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” crew, a clean bill of health for the president is just suspicious. For nearly an hour on Tuesday, President Trump’s physician answered questions from the expected to the bizarre about the state of the president’s physical and mental health following a series of examinations. Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson, the same doctor who treated former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, declared Trump to be in “excellent” health. But for the liberal media, this could not possibly be...

    President Trump kicked CNN star Jim Acosta out of the Oval Office Tuesday after the network’s senior White House correspondent badgered him with racially charged questions. Acosta has made a habit of grandstanding and interrupting when Trump and his surrogates are available to the media. Tuesday was no exception, as Acosta yelled, “Mr. President,” three times before finally getting Trump’s attention. “Did you say that you want more people to come in from Norway? Did you say that you wanted more people from Norway? Is that true Mr. President?” Acosta frantically shouted. “I want them to come in from everywhere…...

    CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta has a history of rude journalistic behavior and disrespect that has never before been allowed in the White House. Today during an oval office meeting between President Trump and President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan the CNN journalist exhibited a level of disrespectful behavior that should lead to his White House press credentials being revoked permanently.

  • Fake News: CNN’s Jim Acosta Claims ‘1,552 Mass Shootings’ Since Sandy Hook

    On December 14, 2017, CNN’s Jim Acosta claimed America has witnessed “1,552 mass shootings” since the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School. This means Acosta is claiming an average of approximately 310 mass shootings a year for each of the past five years. It is important to note that he attempts to bolster this claim via information provided by a tracking site sponsored by gun controllers. That tracking site–the Gun Violence Archive–diverges from FBI definition of a mass shooting as four fatalities or more in one incident so as to include shootings in which no fatalities occur. Acosta tweeted:

    CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta called on reporters to “resist” when they are attacked at a Monday journalism summit in Washington, D.C. Acosta pointed out that while journalists are not members of the “resistance,” they should still “stand up” when the institution of journalism is being attacked. “We are not part of ‘the Resistance’ but … if journalism is attacked, we should resist. That is up to us,” Acosta reportedly told those gathered at the Poynter Ethics Summit. The conference gathered Washington correspondents and other editors to speak on how to report in an era where trust in...

    On CNN's "Twitter & Trump" special Tuesday night, CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta recounted his Wikipedia page being vandalized after being called "fake news" by President Donald Trump. "The President of the United States called me fake news and on the day he called me fake news, somebody went on my Wikipedia page and changed my Wikipedia page to say that I had died that day, that I had died on January 11, 2017," Acosta said. "Really," host Bill Weir flatly replied. "That had to be taken down. I turned off my Twitter notifications because it became sort of...

    I was disappointed when President Trump’s first choice for Secretary of Labor, restaurant magnate Andy Puzder, was forced to withdraw his name. He would have made great use of the office as a Bully Pulpit to highlight the many ways the government impedes job growth through counterproductive regulations – such as the absurd notion that it’s possible to legislate better lives for workers by ratcheting up the minimum wage. Nevertheless, I’m pleasantly surprised by the performance so far by the man Trump subsequently chose for the position, R. Alexander Acosta, who was confirmed in April. Acosta, a former U.S. attorney...

    On Wednesday, CNN's Jim Acosta unwittingly demonstrated the difference between an unbiased, truth-seeking media and a biased, hostile and advocacy media. We need a watchdog press in this country, but its proper function is to report the news, not become the story. Acosta had displayed his obnoxiousness before, but he descended to a new low this week. Earlier in the day, President Trump had appeared with Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue to endorse their immigration bill, called the RAISE Act. The bill was the major focus of the White House press briefing, and presidential adviser Stephen Miller outlined its...

    WASHINGTON — White House senior adviser Stephen Miller battled reporters from The New York Times and CNN during Wednesday’s press briefing taking the reins from President Trump on the war on “fake news.” Miller was at the briefing in support of the Raise Act, a Senate bill that would cut immigration by half over ten years and represent the most significant immigration reform in over half a century. The bill, which is sponsored by Republican senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, would accomplish this by implementing a merit-based immigration system and largely ending the current practice of immigrants bringing over...

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said a top White House aide put a CNN reporter "in his place" at the press briefing on Wednesday. Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller slammed CNN's Jim Acosta as having a "cosmopolitan bias" when Acosta questioned him about newly proposed U.S. immigration policy. Speaking on FOX News Channel’s "Hannity," Sanders predicted CNN would only run an "edited version" of the showdown which took place earlier in the day. "But my guess is, it's not the version where Stephen Miller puts him in his place," she said. Miller took questions on the new policy...

    White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller found himself clashing with CNN correspondent Jim Acosta at Wednesday's White House press briefing. "What the president is proposing here does not sound like it's in keeping with American tradition when it comes to immigration. The Statue of Liberty says, ‘Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses,'" Acosta said, quoting from the poem The New Colossus, which was inscribed on the statue after its erection. "It doesn't say anything about speaking English or be a computer programmer," Acosta continued. "Aren't you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant...

    The Department of Homeland Security announced Monday it would expand the number of temporary visas granted this year for workers in seasonal non-agricultural industries like tourism. In a statement, DHS said Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly had consulted with Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta and determined there were not enough “qualified and willing U.S. workers” to fill the needs of businesses. “Congress gave me the discretionary authority to provide temporary relief to American businesses in danger of suffering irreparable harm due to a lack of available temporary workers,” Kelly said in a statement. “As a demonstration of the administration’s commitment...
