Mainstream Media Hacks Abandon Objectivity On The Immigration Question

CNN’s Jim Acosta went on a rampage during yesterday’s press briefing toward Senior Policy Advisor Stephen Miller while he was discussing the RAISE Act, an immigration reform bill. “This is the largest proposed reform to our immigration policy in half a century,” Miller began. “The most important question when it comes to the U.S. immigration system is who gets a green card.  A green card is the golden ticket of U.S. immigration.” Immigration reform has been, since the campaign began, one of the areas of main concern for the President Donald Trump and his administration. For some odd reason, it continues to be the most partisan issue out there, and liberal journalists are losing their objectivity over the issue. Jim Acosta made it very clear to Advisor Miller that the RAISE Act was just not going to cut it from his point of view. As he continuously interrupted Miller, Acosta attempted to paint the picture of racism. He even mentioned the poem engraved on the Statue of Liberty. Keep Reading

White House Kicks Off ‘Made In America’ Week

This week, the White House will be hosting 50 companies from across the country, each intended to represent a state. The companies will display a product that they manufacture in the United States, such as a NASA spacesuit made by ILC Dover LP, Delaware’s representative. Steinway, representing New York, will display a piano. Shotgun chaps made by K Bar J Leather, on behalf of South Dakota, will be displayed as well. The list goes on from there. Press Secretary Sean Spicer talked up this campaign at yesterday’s off-camera press briefing, stating that the country has an “incredible span of American products.” But no endeavor by the Trump White House goes without criticism. One correspondent pointed out that some do not believe Trump “is the right vessel for this message.” “After all, [President Trump] has shirts made in China and Bangladesh and India.  Other products made–like Trump vodka made in the Netherlands,” the correspondent said. Spicer responded that his perspective was different. President Trump’s history as a businessman is beneficial for the future of… Keep Reading

Pres. Trump: North Korea “Has No Respect For Human Life”

President Trump and South Korean Leader Moon Jae-in spoke to the press this morning about their plans to combat the North Korean regime. This meeting comes shortly after the untimely death of Otto Warmbier, who was held as a North Korean prisoner for the past year. He was returned to the United States in a coma, and doctors indicated that he was in a “state of unresponsive wakefulness.” He died June 19 at the age of 20. In his speech this morning, Trump asserted that “patience is over” because North Korea “has no respect for human life” which has been “proven over and over again.” “Together, we are facing the threat of the reckless brutal regime of North Korea,” he said. “We are working closely with South Korea and Japan… [to implement] a range of diplomatic security… economic measures… to protect our allies and our own citizens from this menace known as North Korea.” Keep Reading

Sarah Sanders Deals Out Reality Check For The Mainstream Media

When Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders got behind the podium at yesterday’s Press Briefing, the truth finally came out. One correspondent posed a question in regards to CNN recently publishing a false news story, resulting in a number of individuals getting fired. The outlet reportedly apologized for this incident, but the President, of course, took to his social media account to call CNN “fake news.” The corresponded wanted to know why CNN’s initial response “was not good enough for the President.” Secretary Huckabee Sanders responded, “I don’t know that it’s that the response isn’t good enough for the President. I think it’s the constant barrage of fake news directed at this President probably that has garnered a lot of his frustration.” “There’s a video circulating now, whether it’s accurate or not I don’t know, but I would encourage everybody in this room, and, frankly, everybody across the country to take a look at it,” she said. “I think if it is accurate, I think it’s a disgrace to… Keep Reading

Huckabee-Sanders Addresses Trump Tweets, Obamacare Repeal In Off-Camera Briefing

“I don’t think it was a game,” Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders said in response to a question about President Trump’s tweet on potential Comey recordings approximately 40 days ago. At today’s White House press briefing, correspondents were focused on receiving answers about a recent tweet by President Trump that stated: “With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, and unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea whether there are ‘tapes’ or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.” One reporter asked Huckabee-Sanders why it took so long for the President to “lay [this claim] to rest”, and she responded bluntly: “You guys asked for an answer… [and] he gave you one.” Keep Reading

MSM’s Continual Quest For A Spicy Slip Up

It’s as if the mainstream media has yet to learn that Sean Spicer is the Seth Grayson of the Trump administration. And when I say that, I mean that Secretary Spicer doesn’t have a clear in-depth answer to every single question that we, the media, ask. He only knows what the administration wants him to know. But, as I have come to learn, the media makes it their life mission to have him slip up and tell us something he doesn’t even know. Now what sense does that make? “We have tremendous respect for the first amendment… we’re gonna work with you. I think the briefing is one aspect of what we do,” Sec. Spicer responded to a question in regards to the lack thereof press briefings over the last few weeks. “While you guys [the media] will always advocate for greater transparency and access… we’ve done a great job… making ourselves available as a staff when it comes down to it.” Yesterday’s press briefing was the first on-camera briefing since… Keep Reading

Spicer And Pruitt Put On The Defense Over Paris Climate Accord

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt were put on the defense at Friday’s press briefing over President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accord. However, the two representatives of the current administration solely expressed further support and clarification on the President’s decision. Secretary Pruitt expressed his appreciation towards President Trump’s fortitude and leadership in the matter, and stated that his decision was “very courageous.” He indicated that U.S. withdrawal did not mean disengagement on the world platform. Additionally, he emphasized that the United States had already made significant progress in reducing CO2 emissions long before the Paris Agreement and without government mandate, because of the country’s innovation and technology. He welcomed other nations to take a look at what the United States has been doing to make such improvements. Keep Reading
