"The gov't continues to claim broad authority to deny reporters access to the WH for asking tough questions. And no Constitutional 1st Amend right to WH access.." THIS MATTERS, kids! #TuesdayThoughts #FreePress

2-"...Once the White House has decided to hold a press briefing, it can’t constitutionally use formal levers of power, like the revocation of a hard pass, to retaliate against a reporter for asking questions the government doesn’t like or for coverage the administration resents.
3-"That’s content-based retaliation for protected speech; and its prohibition is a central First Amendment principle...the revocation of Acosta’s hard pass escalates a broader trend by this White House to retaliate against media whose reporting it doesn’t like and to wield such

Trump says too much hype is being made on the brutal murder of renowned @washingtonpost journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

A perspective which makes any #FreePress advocate or humanitarian sick to their stomach.
Architect of the Osoma bin Laden raid and capture says Trump 'threatens the Constitution' when he attacks the media.

WH accused Acosta of assaulting WH aide, we ALL saw he didn't

Madeleine Westerhout, tRump's 27 yr old executive assistant, also has title of special assistant to POTUS, a designation among WH Sr staff that ranks below assistant to POTUS like Conway

This was def planned by WH
👇🏼
WH revoked @Acosta press credentials after accusing him of something that was clearly orchestrated by them.
Also he never touched Madeleine, who btw is not some meek WH aide, she's 2nd in command after Conway.
The video proves Madeleine assaulted Acosta.
He should sue for libel.
Thankfully @Acosta has the full backing of his employer.

Every News organization should heed their warning & remind this gaslighting administration that Free Press is necessary for checks & balances, it's meant to be the 4th branch.
Silencing Acosta is silencing our free speech.

Here is President Obama's full press conference after first midterm. Pay close attention to him taking questions, they are planned, he has a list of who will be called and NO ONE interrupts him or questions him. #PressConference #JimAcosta
c-span.org/video/?296399-…
President Obama takes out his list of the “chosen ones” that are granted to the opportunity to ask him a question that was undoubtedly pre-planned. You know this @AP @CNN @MSNBC be honest for once in your life. #FreePress 🙄
The man has just lost the most seats in HISTORY the press were church mice. Media played cover for Obama for 8 yrs and never reported his flaws now they’re playing cover for his admin by making every move @realDonaldTrump makes a flaw. #FakeNews really IS the enemy of the people.

A journalist was just murdered and dismembered while still alive...
while Trump commends the physical abuse of a journalist by a Montana lawmaker.

What about Trump is representative of American values or the constitution?

Nothing.

All 4 (now present) in Trump Presidency:

Tyranny-
1. Open hostility to verifiable reality and #FreePress
(Use of words “Hoax” or “Fake.”

2. Shamanistic incarnation- phrases used such as “lock her up” “build that wall.” And now....”Angry mob.” “Mob Rule.” Dazed by chants
3. Magical thinking (Mexico pays for wall/Drain the swamp. Facts are not necessary-just need a chant.)

4. Misplaced faith: (like Trump is “strong” and “protective” or the only one who can deliver positive economy.) @TimothyDSnyder
“Fake news” is used by an authoritarian who is trying to govern from place of uncertainty.
Lügenjournalisten = “lying journalist”

Definition of "Journalist" from Merriam-Webster:
1a: a person engaged in journalism; especially : a writer or editor for a news medium
1b: a writer who aims at a mass audience
2: a person who keeps a journal

Everyone on social media meets the qualification.

In fact, The American Press Institute specifically says that "Asking who is a journalist is the wrong question, because journalism can be produced by anyone."

THREAD: Media is using Soviet style propaganda

One of the most powerful forms of propaganda is demoralization. Soviet elites were encouraged to flaunt the hypocritical double standard that they lived under - that they were not subject to the same "subjective" laws of the People
The #AwanBrothers scandal, Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, Comey, et al., jihadi terrorists compound, even the Kate Stenlie affair - average citizens, even @TuckerCarlson points out the obvious double standard that the politically protected live under as opposed to We The People
all these seemingly unconnected media incidents are used by propagandists like @CNN @brianstelter @ChrisCuomo to flaunt the hypocritical double standard that the politically protected live under

They are used - weaponized - to demoralize We The People

1/ Someone I know just posted this little video on FB from someone a member of “Patriotic Millionaires”.

I watched the video, and scoffed.
2/ It was full of that double speak I’ve learned to suspect thanks to Thomas Sowell.
3/ It launches with a member, showing his total income from 2016 being north of $1MM.

@secupp Absolutely right. Except when the press is blatantly biased and has become more of a propaganda machine than a #freepress. Also could you please "out" the journalists and media orgs on Fusion GPS' payroll? And who else is running pay-to-publish "stories?"

Asking for a friend.

1. While the #FreePress was throwing their tantrum,
President Trump held a Cabinet meeting where some
extremely important issues were addressed. Since you
probably didn't see or hear about it, let's take a look
#MAGA #KAG #BigPharma #PrescriptionDrugs
.@realDonaldTrump .@SecAzar
2.
1st time in history, President Trump is
-importing prescription drugs that do not violate
intellectual property rights & not under patent protections
(competition=lower costs)
-bringing negotiation & discounts to our #Medicare partners
50% of savings go back to the patients
3.
President Trump explains how the "rich middle men"
are angry at him. He can't be bought.
He also explains how the #democrats are extremely happy
about this and have told him so personally (but wont tell you)

#TheResistance version of #Freepress:*Subject to terms and conditions, some restrictions may apply.

[Publish Hillary's own words, proof of corruption or US war crimes, and we will call for your death].

disobedientmedia.com/2017/07/assang…
That ^ article was written when Assange could at least defend himself on Twitter by compiling said death threats, calling out the lies etc.
Now, the smarmy cowards are getting away with it.

They don't want #freepress, they want freedom from criticism.
Which, surprise, is the utter opposite of freedom of the press and speech.

Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough are both members of the anti America, Globalist, CFR.

The objectives of the CFR are to destroy America's Middle Class and Sovereignty, and transfer all wealth and power to a cabal of transnational Banking & Corporate Elites.

#FreePress
Mika Brzezinski is the daughter of Globalist Zbig Brzezinski, co-founder of Trilateral Commission in the 1970's.

Zbig famously advocated dumbing Americans down until they could not think for themselves & were only able to parrot what was on the previous night's news.
#FreePress
Zbig Brzezinski was Obama's mentor at Columbia & an official "Foreign Policy Advisor" during Obama's 1st term.

It was Zbig's idea to arm the Islamist Extremist Mujahadin in 1979.

Obama used the same idea to arm al-Qaeda & ISIS terrorists in Libya & Syria from early 2011.

1/ Today, hundreds of U.S. newsrooms banded together to defend a #FreePress and dispel @realdonaldtrump’s charges that we’re an “enemy of the people.”

We’re the opposite. We help people every day, in ways large and small.

And our work proves it. apps.bostonglobe.com/opinion/graphi…
2/ “So much Fake News is being reported,” @realDonaldTrump tweeted on Jan. 13. “They don’t even try to get it right, or correct it when they are wrong.”
3/ 9 days later, @AsburyParkPress launched a series on NJ police accountability. It exposed deaths and millions in taxpayer funds spent to hush allegations of abuse: app.com/series/theshie…

It also prompted swift reforms: random drug testing and early warning systems for cops.

1) My thoughts on why our #MSM being called a #FreePress is...

Complete bullshit.

(THREAD)
2) Our #FreePress never challenges Democrats on their talking points. Only Republicans get this 'privilege'.

@AdamSchiffCA is on TV all day talking about how their is proof of #Collusion, but we've yet to see ANY.

Anchors just sit back and listen to the narrative of the day.
3) Anyone anti-Trump gets to make the rounds everywhere spouting nonsense against @POTUS.

You'd think a #FreePress would of learned after Wolfe's book backfired, but instead...

Here's comes @OMAROSA who gets more insane with each interview.

On the matter of #FreePress, from me back in December of 2015 on the only subject which Donald Trump and Liberal bloggers have in common.

"Trump understands what we Liberal bloggers have long understood -- that the Beltway media gatekeepers are not guardians of the truth...
...or the integrity of journalism, but are instead the deeply corrupt priesthood of the American political system, who live large off the awesome and terrible power of a Holy Fraud which they themselves have invented.
Extravagantly rewarded, deeply inbred, openly contemptuous of the people it is supposed to serve and as thoroughly rotten as Catholic Church at the time of Martin Luther, the Beltway media has used the one power it actually has...

So the media is doing hit jobs on President Trump Thursday advocating “freedom of the press”

When did he take your freedom of the press rights away?

That’s what I thought. 😉👌🏽
300 hundred news sites joining in on this. Hilarious.
