Permanent Daylight Saving Time Alright with Trump

by Daveda Gruber:

Many of us lost an hour of sleep this past weekend and that includes President Trump. Apparently, our president is tired of switching clocks as much as we are.

Daylight Saving Time began on Sunday morning and every year since I can remember we all lose an hour of sleep in exchange for the longer daylight hours of spring.

Not every state in the U.S. observes Daylight Saving Time. Arizona and Hawaii take a pass while the rest of us made that spring forward this past weekend.

Trump took to Twitter to give us a message about Daylight Saving Time. He tweeted:

I did tweet to our president explaining my thoughts.

The main purpose of Daylight Saving Time, which is called “Summer Time” in many places in the world, is to make better use of daylight. We change our clocks during the summer months to move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening.

Daylight Saving Time has been used in the U.S. and in many European countries since World War I. It was originally proposed as an Act to preserve daylight and provide standard time for the United States. It was enacted on March 19, 1918. It both established standard time zones and set summer DST to begin on March 31, 1918.

Changing the clocks is “a way of conserving fuel needed for war industries and of extending the working day,” according to the Library of Congress. Still it was it was only designed to be temporary. The law was repealed as soon as the war was over.

The issue of daylight saving emerged again during World War II. On Jan. 20, 1942, Congress re-established daylight saving time.

Most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the first Sunday in November. In the U.S., each time zone switches at a different time. In the European Union, Summer Time begins and ends at 1:00 a.m.

Over twenty years later, in 1966, former President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Uniform Time Act that declared daylight saving time a policy of the U.S. It established uniform start and end times within standard time zones. The policy is regulated by the Department of Transportation.

Not all states participate in the rush to change the clocks. Hawaii, most of Arizona and several U.S. territories, including American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, do not observe daylight saving time.

Trump would need to work with Congress in order to repeal the 1966 Johnson-era law. Last week, Republican Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott filed a bill to extend daylight saving time for the entire year. It is called the Sunshine Protection Act. The Florida legislature voted to adopt the measure last year, but in order for it to take effect, Congress must change the federal law, and Trump must sign it.

Trump’s tweet on Monday morning seemed to signal that should such a proposal make it to his desk, he would sign it.

Losing an hour in the spring is more difficult to adjust to than gaining an hour in the fall. It is similar to airplane travel; traveling east we lose time.

The topic of saving time has caused a nationwide debate since its inception. Many argue that the policy is unnecessary and disturbs sleep patterns. I know it disturbs me. My dog is also affected. Her sleep is important, right?

Supporters say it saves energy because people tend to spend more time outside when it’s lighter out. The DOT claims it also “saves lives and prevents traffic injuries,” because visibility is better when the daylight hour is extended.

And don’t blame cows or farmers for losing sleep. Cows have been given a bad reputation lately for their flatulence which is often blamed as a significant source of greenhouse gases, owing to the erroneous belief that the methane released by livestock is in the flatus. In cows, gas and burps are produced by methane-generating microbes called methanogens, that live inside the cow’s digestive system.

House Rep. Alexandria Orcasio-Cortez D-N.Y. doesn’t take kindly to cows in her Resolution the “Green New Deal.”

Tick Tock

Whether it is Google or Yahoo we receive a constant stream of written refuse of which I typically move through quickly. Once in a while I will “click” onto a story to see if the “writers” out there have gotten any closer to the truth.

I am usually disappointed.

It isn’t as though these articles are a complete waste. I routinely skip the columns and head right to the comment section.

This is a much better way, than any poll will ever be, to measure what is happening in America.

Recently I perused a comment that proclaimed “Americans to be pompous” because we are proud of our country.  The struggling scribe finished with a flatulent flourish as they pointed out “others are just as proud of their countries.”

What a perfect example of Liberal logic.

While Americans are “pompous” for our “pride” this behavior is perfectly acceptable for other nationalities, never mind huge land mass pride (Asian and African) and fictional redundant pride (Latino and Hispanic).

Now I must admit my knee jerk reaction was, “Then why don’t you return from which you came,” or something not quite that nice.

Of course this was an angry response as it was possible the person making this statement was already in another country. As there was no way for me to ascertain this information I inserted that possibility into my train of thought which left me immediately with a question.

Why?

Of what, are you unnamed citizens of unnamed countries, proud?

What have the people of Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Sweden, etc., ever accomplished?

Why is the world better because of the existence of Cuba, Nigeria or Denmark?

Iraq, Pakistan and Iran?

Get serious and no Muslims didn’t invent Mathematics.

On the other hand the United States of America has created two of the greatest written documents in the history of Man.

The Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution.

Even our “secondary” documents like the Federalist Papers and the Emancipation Proclamation are far and away better than virtually every other countries work making exceptions of course for the Greeks (Socrates, Plato, Aristotle) and the Scots (Adam Smith).

With that said both of those countries had serious head starts with brilliant minds but it took America to create a form of limited government known as a Constitutional Republic to protect the Individual.

Where Man took the ultimate gift from God known as Free Will and turned it into Freedom.

So let us revisit.

Where did this happen?

It didn’t happen in Russia, China or India.

That’s roughly half of the world’s population and even with a Madison/Hamilton map they still can’t figure it out.

It didn’t happen in England or Germany and both had an incredible head start as they existed long before these United States.

How do we know this without a thorough historical explanation?

The language of English is a derivative of German.

Both countries were on the Earth in some form well before The Great Experiment.

In fact for the United States to exist and prosper, both had to be beaten back (twice).

We sit here today as the first and ONLY country to take in all the information that historical scribes and storytellers made available and then state “We do not want Democracy.”

We want to be free.

Because of this the American Citizen, who makes up less than five percent of the world’s population, is responsible for virtually every life changing invention or creation in the last three centuries.

Electricity, vaccines, the internet, the largest economy, military, extraordinary wealth and prosperity happen in the place that created a system that guarantees its citizens will never go quietly into that good night.

Proud?

You’re damn right we are!

Yet rather than pride too many these days find themselves in the grip of fear.

It’s been said that a coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.

Americans do not fear death as death is but a blink of an eye, a whisper of the wind.

A second in time.

We live for the minutes.

Make the most of yours.

R. Kelly Gets Bail after Child Support Paid

by Daveda Gruber:

For the second time in two weeks, R&B singer R. Kelly walked out of Cook County Jail. It appears that the singer has not paid child support in a while.

$161,000 in child support was paid on Kelly’s behalf before Kelly could walk out of jail.

Sophie Ansari is a spokeswoman for the Cook County Sheriff’s Department. The department operates the jail.

Ansari said that the money was posted sometime Saturday morning. It is alleged that a close friend of  Kelly said Tuesday the woman who posted bond for the singer met him on a cruise five months ago.

Don Russell, a Kelly friend and adviser, said that within a few months of meeting the R&B singer, Valencia Love posted $100,000 to help Kelly win his freedom from Cook County Jail after he spent three nights in custody.

Kelly, aged 52, was ordered into custody on Wednesday by a judge after he said that he did not have the entire $161,000 he owed in child support.

His latest three-night stay in jail came after a judge ordered him locked up for skipping out on what his ex-wife said was more than eight months of support payments for his three children.

Last month Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse pertaining to four women, including three who were minors when the alleged abuse occurred.

Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, said in court last week that the singer’s finances were “a mess” after he was dropped from his record label. This followed recent boycotts of Kelly’s music.

Greenberg also claimed Kelly’s residual income from his music was limited, and that Kelly didn’t even own the rights to his hit song “I Believe I Can Fly.”

Well, Kelly may have believed he could fly but allegedly flying with underage females doesn’t seem to be the right choice.

House Dems Reject Motion Condemning Illegal Immigrant Voting

by Daveda Gruber:

Do Democrats want an America with open borders? Well, you have to understand that the impressions they are giving surely points to that agenda.

On Friday almost all House Democrats opposed a measure condemning voting in U.S. elections by illegal immigrants.

The GOP backed a measure that would have added language to the “H.R. 1” election proposal as a part of a sweeping election reform bill.

It is really only logical, but then some people have no logic, it was written in the proposal that “allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.”

As the federal law stands, non-citizens are prohibited from voting. The law doesn’t seem to be that easy to enforce. We’ve all heard about illegal voting, haven’t we?

In some cases it is easier to see when voting is manipulated. Many states have found that “dead people” vote and some measures have been taken to stop it.

It becomes more difficult to pin point voter fraud when a city such as San Francisco, which is allowing non-citizens, including illegal immigrants, to register to vote in school board elections.

All House Democrats, except for six of them, voted down the measure by 228-197.  One Republican opposed it.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) said, “It sounds like I’m making it up,” What kind of government would cancel the vote of its own citizens, and replace it with noncitizens?”

He tweeted this:

Lauren Fine, who is a spokeswoman for House GOP Whip Steve Scalise, made the point that an identical resolution was adopted by the House last September. On Friday, 41 Democrats flipped and now oppose this latest measure. How quickly they change their minds.

Fine said, “These 41 Democrats must now answer to voters why they were against illegal immigrants voting in elections six months ago, but are suddenly in favor of it now.”

Scalise took to Twitter and tweeted:

On Friday the House, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, at the helm, approved the Democrat-backed election bill. It would institute public financing of congressional campaigns, require presidential candidates to disclose tax returns and make Election Day a federal holiday.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, the measure is dead on arrival in the Senate.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., sees problems with the bill.

The “H.R. 1” measure has been criticized by civil libertarians and Republicans over First Amendment concerns.

Republicans still control the Senate and that closes the case.

Does a Presidential Candidate Need Ohio to Win?

by Daveda Gruber:

Ohio was always a priority state for any election. It has always been said that if you want to win an election, you must win Ohio. That concept seems to have been dumped.

Hillary Clinton had the support of a top Democratic super PAC that spent $133 million in 2016. The PAC says that it no longer considers Ohio a target state for the 2020 presidential election.

Why, you ask? The PAC wants to align itself with the extreme left or socialist Democratic Party.

Yes folks, the Democrats are not even trying to reach Conservative or even Independent voters. In fact, they are grasping hold of socialist leaning leaders and voters. That is the game plan.

Priorities USA is a moneyed super PAC that supported both President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and Clinton’s 2016 run for the White House. They labeled the state a “GOP Watch,” along with states such as Texas and Iowa in a memo.

Ohio seems less likely to flip than other swing states according to the PAC.

Here is some interesting information:

Priorities USA Presidential… by on Scribd

The PAC sees Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and even traditionally red states like Georgia and Arizona more easily attainable.

Josh Schwerin is a spokesman for Priorities USA. He told the outlet. “It’s not in our initial spending plans. It is in the states to watch-and-see if an investment is worth making.”

Schwerin added, “That doesn’t mean we don’t think Ohio is winnable for a Democrat. What we think that means is if Ohio is in play, we’ll have already won the easier states and have 270 electoral votes. Our investment strategy is how to get to 270 electoral votes.”

Then Candidate Trump won Ohio by 8 percentage points in 2016 and former President Barack Obama won the state by 3 percentage points in 2012.

Priorities USA is a vehicle used by Democratic presidential candidates. It spent $126 million against President Trump and around $6.5 in support of Clinton in 2016.

There are some local Ohio Democrats who have mocked the notion that their state, the so-called “Mother of Presidents,” was no longer a swing state that a White House hopeful must carry to seal a victory.

I find this to be a rather big mistake on the Democratic side, but then, I’m not looking for a Democratic win in Ohio or any other state, for that matter.

In order to keep America from going full blown Socialist, we must have Republican voters out in the masses. We also need Democrats who do not want Socialism to take over this country and Independent voters, as well.

Stand your ground folks. This won’t be easy. There are opponents in all directions. The younger generation along with older Leftists of the American people have been drastically radicalized to the LEFT. We, on the RIGHT must fight for our freedom. Getting our vote out in 2020 will be the most important thing we ever do for our country.

Ilhan Omar: Hurtful Words or Anti-Semitic?

by Daveda Gruber:

A delay looms over the consideration of a resolution condemning antisemitism over comments made by Rep. Ilhan Omar D-Minn..

Democratic leaders will put forward a vote on the House floor Wednesday to denounce antisemitism. The text of the resolution and whether Omar would be mentioned by name were left hanging but the latest text being circulated in the House does not mention Omar.

The argumentative environment  could jeopardize bringing up the measure this week because there’s a risk it might not pass.

Over the weekend Omar held her ground and tweeted:

No one had demanded that Omar should have allegiance/pledge support to Israel but she tweeted that she would refuse to “have allegiance/pledge support” to Israel as a condition of serving in Congress.

The Freshman from Minnesota has only been in Congress since January. Yet, she has been the center of controversy over numerous remarks she’s made that have been labeled anti-Semitic, as you can see from her tweets.

Anti-Defamation League Chief Executive Jonathan Greenblatt said in a recent letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that Omar’s suggestion that Jews have a divided loyalty between the U.S. and Israel is “a vile anti-Semitic slur that has been used to harass, marginalize and persecute the Jewish people for centuries.”

Greenblatt did not leave out but did condemned the attacks Omar has faced for her own Islamic faith. A resolution would “send the unambiguous message that the United States Congress is no place for hate.”

There are some lawmakers who are pushing for Omar to lose her role on a key House committee.

On Tuesday, House GOP Whip Steve Scalise tweeted:

On Tuesday, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized the planned resolution, saying other lawmakers weren’t reprimanded after controversial comments.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted:

GOP leaders finally removed Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) from all committees for having promoted white nationalism and ¬supremacy, Democrats should insist on Omar’s expulsion from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

The House Democratic leadership would like to treat the resolution as a “suspension” measure which means that the House can bring the plan to the floor quickly with limited debate. It would need a two-thirds vote to pass.

We all have our own opinions on this matter but I do see that even I got into a little twitter debate on the subject.

I responded to Jack Murphy’s tweet:

One Twitter user was not happy with my opinion. She and I tweeted back and forth:

I didn’t answer the last response to me; should I?

University of California, Davis Supports Professor who Called for all Cops to be Murdered

Recently on the radio a talking head uttered “Uh huh, uh huh, uh yeah, no, well you know, uh huh.”

It appeared he tried to cover the subject with all possibilities.

How very Progressive of him.

Of course this is nothing compared to others.

A “professor” who is currently employed by the University of California, Davis has stated many times that all “cops” need to be killed.

That “cops” are an oppressive force, are no longer needed and should be murdered.

He apparently doesn’t realize that if “cops” are no longer in/of service, he and all of his friends won’t be “teaching” anymore.

This is not because they would be fired or put on sabbatical.

They’d be dead.

I have been on this planet for almost five decades.

I sat in Carter’s gas lines, sat through public school emergency drills that had us hide under our desks in case of nuclear holocaust and watched America elect a Bill, a Bush and a Barry and through it all I can accurately say I’ve never seen so many stupid people saying so many stupid things as to what is occurring today.

(1) Cigarettes are bad for you but marijuana is medicine.

We can legally drive cars while smoking one of these two and that one isn’t Mary Jane. We know marijuana is a Depressant that kills cells everywhere in our bodies including our brain, lungs, pancreas, liver, etc.

No BODY is better due to the ingestion of THC.

Those of you telling yourself Smoke is good for you are practicing what is called Rationalization or Justification. I’d explain the difference between the two but it would be a waste of my time. It’s doubtful you’d understand and I know you are too high to care.

For those with sober minds Kamala Harris is a perfect example of a dope who inhales. She actually bragged about it, blamed it on her Jamaican family and then called herself an African-American. She is so damaged she has called for “reparations” while reportedly being a descendant of a slave owner.

It appears Oppression and hypocrisy are both found in her “chronic” DNA.

How very Obamaesque.

When will she admit to the cocaine usage and being friends with Bill Ayres or whatever she was with Willie Brown?

The only group more damaged than this Bob Marley wannabe are the ones who voted for the continentally challenged bigot.

By the way Libs her mother is from India.

That would be Asia in case you are keeping score at home.

(2) If we don’t stop all the human consumption happening in the United States we will all be dead in twelve years.

If this is true (and of course it isn’t) why are we allowing more HUMANS into the country and why isn’t this the ONLY question being asked of the Gangrene Group?

If we are this close to total destruction why aren’t they supporting President Trump to keep out as many people as possible?

Less people less consumption.

Food doesn’t eat itself.

If they really believed this garbage then how can they argue locking down the border isn’t an emergency?

These imbeciles and their brethren are living proof that all people are not created equal.

They are knock-knock jokes without a punchline.

This is basic stuff.

One plus one will never equal fish.

Never.

They know not therefore they speak yet the media doesn’t challenge even the simplest of things.

If they are so worried about fossil fuels please explain how electricity will work without them?

While you’re at it what is AC and DC?

I can hear it now.

“Electricity will only work if it’s paid a living wage and AC/DC is racist because everyone knows Back in Black is about a bus ride.”

Ah I had forgotten.

February was just completed.

The celebration of the shortest month of the year and the exact opposite of what Martin Luther King preached.

By all means bring on Kaepernick and Farrakhan!

Two clowns who kneel for Sharia and call for the death of Jews, White People and Uncle Apostate Toms.

Wait now Jason those two aren’t “mainstream” for the Democratic Party.

Anal Cavity Colon was on the cover of Time, Louis smiles with Soetoro (even Snopes can’t deny this) and was also found on stage at Aretha Franklin’s funeral standing with none other than Bill Oral Sex Isn’t Sex Clinton.

OSIS or OSIL to its Islamic supporters with Russian “flexibility”.

American Uranium and a Reset Button for all!

How much more “mainstream” do you want it?

Do they all need to hug Robert Byrd and drop $150,000,000,000 on Iran?

Look at all those zeros.

It’s like a Cheekbones Warren “rally”.

I digress.

The Liberals are so filled with “hate” they are now attacking themselves and burning down their own houses.

I say bring it on!

Self-flagellation for all Progressives!

What’s that Jason?

Flatulation?

I thought we told you NO MORE COWS! Haven’t you heard? Ninety-seven percent of scientists think the world is warming, oh wait, no cooling, oh wait, what did Al Gore say? Polar caps should be gone by now? Actually getting thicker? Record snow in the Sierras? California dams are so full billions of gallons of water are being flushed into the rivers and out into the Pacific Ocean as we speak? I thought we were having a drought?

“Uh huh, uh huh, uh yeah, no, well you know, uh huh.”

My fellow Americans.

Do not fret.

Do not fear.

Preparation and resolve will carry the day.

Eventually the Liberals are going to get what they want.

The day 911 will stop working.

You see I’m willing to make a deal with the “government” and I’m sure many of my Brothers and Sisters will join me.

I will never call 911 or expect any protection from the “government” from this day forward as long as no form of “government” will ever question me on how I handle my business.

The Liberals should love this deal.

After about three months human consumption should drop dramatically and the need for law enforcement may disappear completely.

We can call this a WIN WIN.

One round at a time.

Someone just needs to ring the bell.

My guess is an appreciation for “cops” will soon reappear and Progressives may be more amenable to an explanation of the importance of Carbon and how human behavior has never and will never control the Earth.

EVER.

Then again we may just have to keep handling our business.

“Uh huh, uh huh, uh yeah, no, well you know, uh huh.”

Sign, Sign Everywhere a Sign

by Daveda Gruber:

Residents and visitors to Hollywood California got a rather interesting view. A billboard was in clear sight on Friday morning. A group of Conservative street artists had put up their work of art.

A billboard, which just happened to be across the street from CNN, was taken over by the artists known as “The Fraction.”

“The Fraction” mocked CNN with their latest project that also made fun of  its president Jeff Zucker for its coverage, or lack thereof, of the summit in Hanoi, Vietnam.

This week’s summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un was actually the big news of the week.

The billboard must have been a sight to behold. I’m sure that Republican views must have caused laughter and agreement with the wording. On the other hand, Democrats may have thought it wasn’t so funny.

The billboard referred to CNN as “Communist News Network.” It also had the phrase “Keep Korea divided” with an asterisk that read “because OrangeManBad.”

The sign also featured an image of Jeff Zucker. The title given to the CNN president was “CEO, CNNPC,” a reference to the “non-playable character” meme which has depicted liberals as robotic.

Okay, I think that’s funny but I really don’t think of CNN as real new, in fact, I’ve called them “Fake News” for a very long time now.

Hollywood Reporter tweeted this:

An anonymous member of “The Faction” told The Hollywood Reporter, “When Trump speaks glowingly of Kim Jong Un it’s a tactic. Zucker and his journo-activists know this, but are more than willing to try to torpedo the summit — the future of the long-suffering North and South Korean people be damned.”

After seven hours of being seen, the sign was taken down and replaced with an advertisement for a marijuana dispensary.

Did you see either one of them? I didn’t see them in person but lyrics came into my mind when I saw the sign. The lyrics to the song say it all:

“Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?”

The two leaders at the Hanoi summit couldn’t agree on the terms of an agreement. The Trump and Kim summit ended earlier than expected.

On Wednesday CNN gave practically no coverage to the summit. They instead kept the spotlight on the turbulent congressional testimony of former Trump attorney and “fixer” Michael Cohen.

While the congressional hearing was interesting, it didn’t compare to the Summit.

Trump Puts a Damper on Cohen’s Book Manuscript

by Daveda Gruber:

On Friday President Trump sought to discredit his onetime lawyer, Michael Cohen, by tweeting some of his thoughts on a book deal that Cohen was seeking.

The book deal that has been reportedly proposed paints Trump in a very different light that what was described by Cohen while he testified to Congress this week.

Cohen testified before a Congressional committee for three days in both public and private hearings on Capitol Hill.

Cohen was shopping the book to publishers weeks before the FBI raid on his office. It was reported that Cohen promised chapters would focus on first lady Melania Trump and Trump’s children, as well as the “unfortunate saga” of Stormy Daniels.

Trump’s tweets reflected his feeling on the matter:

The now-disbarred attorney gave disdainful testimony about Trump before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday. Cohen out rightly called Trump a “racist,” a “conman” and “a cheat.”

Cohen’s testimony came after he pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about a Trump real estate project in Russia as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates.

Cohen has pleaded guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of making false statements to a financial institution, one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution.

Now the president and his Republican allies have aggressively sought to discredit the former Trump loyalist.

On Thursday, Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) wrote to Attorney General William P. Barr, asking him to investigate whether Cohen had perjured himself this week when he insisted during his testimony that he had not wanted a job in the Trump administration. Cohen said that he had been content to serve as Trump’s personal lawyer.

On Friday Republicans seized a video clip that has recently resurfaced from a November 2016 appearance by Cohen on CNN.

During the interview, Cohen is pressed by CNN’s Chris Cuomo about whether he would move from New York to Washington with Trump.

When asked if there was a chance Trump would ask him to take a job on either “the political side” or the “governmental side,” Cohen says, “I certainly hope so.” Asked if he’d go to Washington, Cohen says, “One hundred percent.”

During Wednesday’s congressional testimony, Cohen told lawmakers he was “extremely proud” to be the personal attorney for Trump as he became president.

But during his testimony Cohen said, “I did not want to go to the White House. I was offered jobs.”

Alleged contradictions seem to be surfacing from every which way. Cohen has promised to return to Capitol Hill and testify on March 6, 2019.

Cohen’s lawyer is Lanny Davis who is a longtime Clinton ally. From 1996 to 1998, he served as a special counsel to former President Bill Clinton. That fact alone makes me think that there is something rather fishy going on.

Trump said prosecutors should start looking at Democrats “where real crimes were committed.”

I agree with that 100 percent. As a Republican, I’ve been waiting for the real criminals to be arrested for what feels like a very long time.

Acosta Caught Up in Yet Another Lie

by Daveda Gruber:

Were Jim Acosta’s feelings hurt? On Thursday President Trump didn’t call on the CNN reporter in a news conference after the abrupt end to the Hanoi summit between the U.S. and North Korea.

After the news conference Acosta claimed that Trump may have avoided  White House press corps journalists. Why, you ask? Well, Acosta believes or appeared to know the answer. He made an assumption that he and other White House press corps journalists were not called on in an effort to dodge questions about Michael Cohen.

Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, testified Wednesday on the Capitol Hill.

Acosta said, “First of all, we have to point out the obvious, which is the president steered clear largely during this news conference of the White House press corps and instead selected journalists at random from the other side of the room, where foreign journalists were seated.”

Acosta apparently forgot to mention that Trump called on at least two journalists from the White House press corps; just not Acosta. The first journalist to be called on by Trump was CBS’s Major Garrett. Also, ABC News’ Jonathan Karl, who questioned Trump on Cohen’s testimony. So, did Acosta Lie? You tell me.

The air travel distance is equal to 8,584 miles. The air travel shortest distance between United States and Vietnam is 13,814 km or 8,584 miles. If you travel with an airplane (which has average speed of 560 miles) from United States to Vietnam, It takes 15.33 hours to arrive. That’s a long flight from any airport in the U.S.. It bewilders me why a journalist who traveled that distance to cover a summit, would waste a question on  asking about a completely different subject than the one at hand.

Trump had an answer for the Cohen question, which occurred in Washington, more than 13,000 miles from Hanoi, and said, “[Michael Cohen] lied a lot. But it was very interesting because he didn’t lie about one thing, he said, ‘no collusion with the Russian hoax.’”

Other U.S.-based outlets that also questioned Trump included the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR, and Bloomberg.

Acosta must have felt really scorned because he added that Trump “was calling on reporters from Russian state media, Chinese state media and Sean Hannity from Fox.” Acosta added that it “was by design because he didn’t want to really answer questions about Michael Cohen.”

The CNN star reporter then took to Twitter and tweeted:

It appears the Acosta may be jealous of Sean Hannity, who did get a question. I tweeted back to Acosta and told him what was on my mind:

Acosta later acknowledged that Trump did answer a question on Cohen, though he did observe that Trump called the testimony yesterday a “fake hearing.”

I must reiterate that questions in Hanoi related to the summit would have been more appropriate.
