And now, a proper salute to a douchebag of epic proportions

Oh that Jim Acosta.

Diogenes has Acosta’s number

JIM-ACOSTA-SPEAKING-620x325

Mike McDaniel also takes Mr. Look at ME to task

One of the interesting—as in the ancient Chinese curse—things about America is the hidden, previously unimaginable, new and innovative rights judges are able to find in the Constitution.  Unlike inNational Treasure, no arcane chemical or optical processes are necessary to find these cleverly concealed rights.

Prof. Jacobson atLegal Insurrection reports:

Based on reports from reporters in the media room, it appears that the Judge ruled that while the White House doesn’t have to allow any reporters into the White House, by setting up a credentialing process it owes people like Acosta due process, and that it confers a First Amendment interest entitled to protection. The Court appears to have ruled that Acosta’s First Amendment rights supercede the White House interest in orderly press conferences, and that Acosta was not given due process in the revocation process.

That’s right gentle readers: any given boorish, juvenile, arrogant, and petulantly disruptive reporter with a propensity for violence now has a constitutional right to assault White House interns, and to a White House hard pass!

Go read all that both links have. Acosta is a jerk, grandstanding to publicize himself. Guess he is pimping for his own show, maybe a book deal, who knows. But one thing is clear, whatever journalistic talent he had, has been sacrificed on the Altar of Activism

Yes, the left wants people ignorant

Pirates Cove uncovers the latest effort to hide the truth about the cost of Leftism

First, members of the Cult of Climastrology are super excited to agitate for carbon taxes/fess on Other People. Next, they’re super excited to make sure that citizens do not find out that those same taxes/fees are costing them

GREENPEACE REPORTEDLY FIGHTING TO STOP DRIVERS FROM LEARNING ABOUT CARBON TAX COSTS

Greenpeace is reportedly challenging the placement of stickers on gas stations that notify drivers of higher fuel prices due to the implementation of a carbon tax.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford, who has embarked on a pro-energy agenda in his province since entering office, will execute a number of measures to fight back against Canada’s nationwide carbon tax. Besides challenging the carbon tax initiative in court, the conservative politician is looking to include item breakdowns on gas receipts and heating bills, informing customers of how much the carbon fee is costing them.

The Ontario government is also looking to include stickers at gas pumps across the province, informing customers of the fee.

However, Ford’s sticker program is already running into opposition.

Greenpeace — an international environmentalist organization — reportedly announced its intention to mount a challenge. The group is arguing the stickers are deceptive because they do not include the price of inaction on climate change.

In short, they do not want an informed public because knowledge is inconvenient for the left. Smart people will reject leftism, so, dumbing people down is better for those pushing leftism

DC Bans Churches From Handing Out Straws With Free Coffee – Washington Free Beacon
.

.
Washington, D.C., will begin enforcing its ban on plastic straws on Jan. 1, which would penalize churches for offering free coffee if it comes with a stirrer.

The Department of Energy and Environment tweeted Thursday that Mayor Muriel Bowser has a “list of recyclables and compostables” banning plastic straws and stirrers. However, businesses, churches, and nonprofits can hand out straws and coffee stirrers if they are made from hay.

“On January 1, 2019, new restrictions on the use of single-use plastic straws and stirrers will take effect,” according to the D.C. Department of Energy and Environment. “DOEE will begin inspecting businesses for compliance with the District’s single-use straw and stirrer requirements on January 1st, 2019,” the department said…

School Punishes Male Teacher For Refusing To Watch A Naked Girl In The Boys’ Locker Room – The Federalist

A Florida school district allowed a self-described transgender female student regular access to the boys’ locker room, with no advance warning to the boys or their parents.

The first time she walked in, she caught “boys (literally) with their pants down, causing them embarrassment and concern by the fact that they had been observed changing by an obvious girl,” says a complaint letter to Pasco County School District from Liberty Counsel, a pro-bono constitutional law firm.

With a “gag order,” school administrators forbade teachers from talking about the change, and ordered a male P.E. teacher to supervise the potentially undressed girl in the Chasco Middle School locker room, the letter says.

When he refused to “knowingly place himself in a position to observe a minor female in the nude or otherwise in a state of undress,” administrators told him “he will be transferred to another school as discipline for ‘not doing your job in the locker room.’”…

DemoNazi Senator Compares ICE To The KKK – Townhall
.

.
On Wednesday, Senator Kamala Harris compared the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) service to the Ku Klux Klan, insisting that certain “communities” view the agency as a “domestic terrorist group” that deliberately uses “fear and intimidation” to specifically target “immigrants coming from Mexico and Central America” based on their racial or ethnic background.

The California Democrat made these remarks during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing meant to determine whether acting ICE Director Ronald Vitiello will become the agency’s newest official head. In spite of Harris repeatedly formulating her comparison of ICE to the KKK as the “perception” of some distant third party, Vitiello saw through the senator’s transparent attempt to smear him and his agents and denied that any parallels existed between the two groups [emphasis mine]:

VITIELLO: Well, the Klan was what we would call today a domestic terrorist group.

HARRIS: Why? Why would we call them “domestic terrorist group” [sic]?

VITIELLO: ‘Cause they tried to use fear and force to change political environment[sic]…

Family Outraged After Scumbag Sentenced To Less Than 3 Years For Raping Their Dying Daughter – Circa

A Snohomish County, Washington, man was sentenced to 34 months in prison after admitting he raped a young woman while she overdosed on drugs, then let her die.

Brian Varela, 20, pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter, third-degree rape and unlawful disposal of remains Thursday.

He admitted he raped 18-year-old Alyssa Noceda last February while she overdosed in his bedroom. He did nothing to help. He even sent photos of her mostly nude body to his friends, mocking her as she lay there dying.

Then he tried to cover up Noceda’s death by disposing of her body, but police caught him first. In court, Varela said, “I’m sorry for my foolish actions. Whatever I get is what I deserve.”

A judge sentenced Varela to 34 months in prison Thursday, acknowledging she felt it was inadequate, but state law required her to follow sentencing guidelines. Varela had no criminal history…

Rick Scott Declares Victory Again As Florida Orders Manual Recount In Senate Race – Washington Times

Florida’s Republican Gov. Rick Scott declared victory in his Senate bid for a second time Thursday after a state-mandated machine recount widened his lead over incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson.

But Mr. Nelson’s legal team, insisting there is not “one universe of votes,” vowed Thursday evening to press on and predicted their candidate eventually will emerge as the winner.

While the election results are not official until certified by the secretary of state, a move that should come after the Elections Canvassing Commission’s Nov. 20 meeting, the unofficial recount expanded Mr. Scott’s edge by 865 votes, leaving him with a margin of 13,427.

That’s a bigger edge than any recount in U.S. history has overcome…

The Top Ten University Leaders Who Are Supporters Of Terror – Frontpage

For nearly two decades, the campus organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has established a beachhead of support for anti-Israel terrorists on American campuses, resulting in a dramatic rise in anti-Semitic incidents and the harassment of Jewish students.

After many years of denial, the American and Jewish press have finally begun to take notice of this epidemic of hostility towards Jews and supporters of Israel, but the true depravity of SJP still escapes their notice.

While most of the press coverage debates whether SJP’s anti-Zionism has crossed the line into anti-Semitism, this discussion misses the larger and far more sinister truth that SJP is not just the leading promoter of Jew hatred on American college campuses, nor does it content itself to spread anti-Semitic lies and propaganda defaming Israel, the only liberal democracy in the Middle East as an “apartheid state”- though assuredly it does these things.

The media posturing misses the truth that SJP is a full-fledged arm of the anti-Israel terror group Hamas…

Theresa May Vows To Fight On In The Face Of Cabinet Resignations And An All-Out Tory Brexiteer Bid To Oust Her – Daily Mail

Theresa May vowed defiance tonight after Brexiteers effectively declared war – with Cabinet ministers quitting and an all-out bid to oust her. The Prime Minister used a press conference in Downing Street to double down on her determination to press ahead with her controversial pact with the EU.

Despite a slew of high-profile resignations and the near-certain prospect of a Tory no-confidence vote in her leadership, Mrs May insisted she would keep ‘putting the national interest first’.

‘I believe with every fibre in my body that the course I have set out is the right one,’ she said. She admitted that the burden of leadership was ‘heavy’ at the best of times and even tougher when Brexit pervaded every part of the UK economically and socially…

Elon Musk’s SpaceX Wins FCC Approval To Deploy 7,518 Satellites – Bloomberg

Elon Musk’s SpaceX won permission to deploy more than 7,000 satellites, far more than all operating spacecraft currently aloft, from U.S. regulators who also moved to reduce a growing risk from space debris as skies grow more crowded.

Space Exploration Technologies Corp. has two test satellites aloft, and it earlier won permission for a separate set of 4,425 satellites – which like the 7,518 satellites authorized Thursday are designed to provide broadband communications. It has said it plans to begin launches next year.

Space companies riding innovations that include smaller and cheaper satellites – with some just 4 inches long and weighing only 3 pounds – are planning fleets that will fly fast and low, offering communications now commonly handled by larger, more expensive satellites.

Right now there are fewer than 2,000 operating satellites, and the planned additional space traffic demands vigilance, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai said…

Roy Clark, Country Music Legend And ‘Hee Haw’ Star, Dead At 85 – Fox News

Country star Roy Clark, the legendary singer and multi-instrumentalist with an ear-to-ear smile who headlined the hit TV show “Hee Haw” for nearly a quarter century, has died. He was 85. A rep for the singer told Fox News Clark died on Thursday at his Tulsa, Okla., home due to complications from pneumonia.

Clark was the “Hee Haw” host or co-host for its entire 24-year run, with Buck Owens his best-known co-host. The country music and comedy show’s last episode aired in 1993, though reruns continued for a few years thereafter.

Wisconsin Company Gives All Its Employees Handguns For Christmas – Daily Caller

A Hortonville, Wisconsin business chose to give each and every one of its 16 employees a unique gift for Christmas this year – a handgun.

To Ben Wolfgram, co-owner of BenShot – a manufacturer of bullet embedded glassware – the decision was made to promote team building and safety, according to the Hortonville Post Crescent.

The business, which employs a mix of military veterans as well as several who have never fired a weapon, was started in 2015 in a garage workshop. Wolfgram told the Post Crescent that this is the first time his company has ever given such a gift, and that most employees were excited.

‘Alarming’ Study Claiming Global Warming Heating Up Oceans Based On Math Error – Washington Free Beacon

A highly circulated study claiming oceans are warming at a much higher rate due to global warming contains “key errors,” forcing researchers to issue a correction.

The study published by the journal Nature on Oct. 31 by researchers at Princeton University and UC San Diego’s Scripps Institution of Oceanography claimed the oceans were warming at a rate 60 percent higher than previously thought.

However, a mathematical error discovered by independent climate scientist Nic Lewis after he perused the study’s first page has led the journal to retract its key finding. The study has a much larger margin of error, making their findings of a 60 percent increase in ocean warming less precise, and actually between 10 percent and 70 percent.

The lead researcher now says its findings are practically meaningless, with a margin of error “too big now to really weigh in” on ocean temperatures.

When first published, the study led to “alarming” warnings in mainstream media outlets…

Feds Investigating Altered Election Documents Tied To Florida Democrat Party – Zero Hedge
.

The Florida Department of State (DoS) last week has asked federal prosecutors to investigate official election documents with the dates changed, which the department says can be tied to the Florida Democratic Party, according to Politico.

The concerns, which the department says can be tied to the Florida Democratic Party, center around date changes on forms used to fix vote-by-mail ballots sent with incorrect or missing information.

Known as “cure affidavits,” those documents used to fix mail ballots were due no later than 5 p.m. on Nov. 5 – the day before the election. But affidavits released on Tuesday by the DOS show that documents from four different counties said the ballots could be returned by 5 p.m. on Thursday, which is not accurate. – Politico

Fake News Update: Fox News Backing CNN’s Lawsuit Against White House – Breitbart

Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized.

New Report Shows How Incredibly Wrong Obama Was About Energy Independence – Investor’s Business Daily

Energy: Has any politician ever been more wrong than Barack Obama was about U.S. oil production and energy independence? Based on the latest report from the International Energy Agency, the answer is unequivocally no.

On Tuesday, oil prices fell for the 12th consecutive decline. And amid that decline, the International Energy Agency forecasts that the U.S. will account for 75% of the growth in global oil production through 2025.

That’s a stunning finding that shows how dynamic the domestic oil and gas industry has become.

Crude oil production in the U.S. has climbed more than 67% in just the past six years. And the Department of Energy expects it will climb an additional 11% next year.

Earlier this year, U.S. production hit 11 million barrels a day, surpassing Russia as the world’s largest oil producer, after having blown past Saudi Arabia in February…

Acting AG Whitaker In 2016: ‘Special Counsel Is Required’ To Investigate Clinton Foundation – CNS

Matthew Whitaker, the acting attorney general of the United States and a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Iowa, said in a 2016 interview that there is enough evidence “in the public domain” to warrant the appointment of a “special prosecutor” to investigate the Clinton Foundation.

He added that the Foundation was “clearly a pay-to-play situation” where if you gave money to the Foundation, you got “preferential treatment” at the State Department, which was headed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from 2009 to 2013.

Hillary Clinton’s emailing of classified documents through her private computer server was a “serious” problem, but the “real ballgame” is “where Clinton Foundation donors were given preferential treatment,” said Whitaker in an Aug. 25, 2016 interview with Breitbart News Daily.

“It’s very interesting to watch the Clinton camp try to explain away these meetings,” said Whitaker…

Disney World Bans Veteran After Holding ‘Trump 2020’ Sign On Ride – Washington Standard

An ex-Marine veteran was banned from Walt Disney World and all its parks after waving a “Trump 2020” banner while riding Splash Mountain. Interestingly enough, Disney apparently thought he was such a threat that they used 40 employees to escort out the 49-year-old veteran.

“I held up the sign for two seconds so I can take a picture,” Dion Cini told the New York Post. “You’re allowed to hold up signs on Disney rides – cameras, cellphones, and other stuff like that. People have been doing it for years. They just kicked me out ’cause of the context of the sign.”

Cini took to Facebook to share his story writing, “Trespassed from WDW for holding a Trump 2020 banner on Splash Mountain. – feeling super at Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom.”

Disney didn’t think this through. Now, this story is going to go viral, Trump will get some major advertising from this and they are probably going to lose some business over this. The guy was a loyal patron, Disney. You just don’t do that.

Of course, this wasn’t Cini’s first encounter over promoting Donald Trump…
