CNN’S ACOSTA COMPLAINS TRUMP’S VERBAL ATTACKS ON MEDIA WILL LEAD TO “A JOURNALIST GETTING HURT”

“The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act.”

Steve Watson | Infowars.com – APRIL 25, 2018

Fake news reporter Jim Acosta complained Tuesday that President Trump’s consistent slamming of the media and ridiculing networks such as CNN as ‘fake news’ will lead to a reporter being attacked by Trump supporters.

Speaking with Variety along with reporters April Ryan and Ashley Parker of The Washington Post, Acosta suggested that Trump’s rhetoric will lead people to commit acts of violence against journalists.

“The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act.” Acosta said, implying that Trump is disingenuous in his tirades against the media.

“They take what he says very seriously,” Acosta continued.

“They take attacks from Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders and what they do to us on a daily basis very seriously,” he added.

Acosta further suggested that Trump supporters are mentally unhinged.

“They don’t have all their faculties in some cases. Their elevator may not hit all floors,” he exclaimed.

“My concern is that a journalist is going to be hurt one of these days. Somebody’s going to get hurt,” Acosta added.

“And at that point, the White House, the President of the United States, they’re going to have take a hard look in the mirror and ask themselves whether or not they played a role in this, whether they created this toxic environment that resulted in a journalist getting hurt.” Acosta urged

The reporter has clashed with Trump a number of times, including most notably when Trump said “You are fake news,” to his face during a press briefing last year, and told Acosta that “Your organization is terrible,” referring to CNN.

Acosta has become increasingly hostile in his line of questioning, and has claimed that he is not being given the freedom to ask questions.

During the Variety interview, April Ryan chimed in to claim that she doesn’t “travel as much as I used to” for fear of being attacked by supporters of Trump, who she says is guilty of “throwing gasoline on the fire”.

Elsewhere during the interview, April Ryan stated that “fake news” isn’t “a cute little statement” but rather “has tentacles that it’s reaching overseas” that “can really destabilize democracies.”

She also charged that Trump has violated his Oath of Office by not supporting the media, claiming that reporters like herself and Acosta are “pillars of this nation”.

“He’s really being a hypocrite when he’s calling us “fake news” and saying — and it’s undermining us and we are a part of the pillars of this nation, the Founding Fathers. They didn’t know that there was going to be Twitter. They didn’t know there was going to be Ashley, they didn’t know there was going to be a Jim, they definitely didn’t know there was going to be an April asking questions of Presidents, but when we stand on what they laid for us and we — and the First Amendment is still strong — freedom of press and the President is going totally against that.” Ryan stated.

The part she left out was that the First Amendment also gives Americans the right to criticize the press.

Aussie Diplomat Who Sparked Trump-Russia Probe Doesn’t Want To Talk About It

The Australian diplomat whose barroom conversation with a Trump campaign adviser was the catalyst for the FBI’s collusion investigation is refusing to talk about the case, saying that discussing his involvement would be detrimental to the relationship between the U.S. and Australia.

During a Monday interview on Australian television, Alexander Downer, who served as Australia’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom until earlier this year, was asked for the first time publicly about his May 2016 conversation with George Papadopoulos.

That conversation, which occurred at Kensington Gardens in London, is said to have led the FBI to open its counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign. That’s because Downer reportedly claimed that Papadopoulos discussed Russians having dirt on Hillary Clinton(RELATED: In Private, George Papadopoulos Denies Collusion)

“Did you meet with George Papadopoulos in the Kensington Wine Bar in May of 2016? And if so, what did he say to you?” host Ellen Fanning asked the diplomat.

“Well, let me be blunt about this,” Downer began. “Of course, it has been widely reported that I did. But I don’t think talking about it is going to help our relationship with the United States or make any contribution that will advance Australia’s interests.”

He went on to say that questions about whether Russia had a relationship with the Trump team are “a toxic issue in American politics.”

“I don’t think any of us really want to be dragged into that any more than we can help,” he continued, adding that he did not believe it was in Australia’s interests to be seen playing in American politics.

Downer also declined to say whether he has been contacted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion involving the Trump campaign.

“It’s exactly the sort of question that I definitely wouldn’t answer,” Downer said when asked if he’s met with Mueller’s team.

Papadopoulos, 30, has pleaded guilty to Mueller’s prosecutors. On Oct. 5, 2017, he acknowledged that he lied to FBI agents about the timing of conversations he had with a Maltese professor and two Russian nationals.

Joseph Mifsud, the professor, told Papadopoulos during an April 26, 2016 meeting in London that he had been told by Russian government officials that Russia had “thousands” of Clinton emails. It is still not clear whether Papadopoulos told anyone on the Trump campaign about Mifsud’s claim. Sources close to Papadopoulos told TheDCNF that he believed that Mifsud was referring to the highly-publicized 30,000 emails that Clinton deleted from her private email server.

Though Papadopoulos has admitted lying about his encounters with Mifsud, sources close to the former Trump aide say that he is privately denying taking part in any collusion scheme.

Little is known about the Papadopoulos-Downer conversation, which was first reported by The New York Times at the end of December. Downer reportedly passed details of the conversation to other Aussie government officials. That information was passed to the FBI more than two months after the meeting. The bureau opened its counterintelligence probe on July 31, 2016.

The Daily Caller News Foundation recently reported that Papadopoulos was introduced to Downer through Erika Thompson, a diplomat with Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. She was with Downer and Papadopoulos during their visit to Kensington Gardens, which occurred on May 10, 2016.

MS-13 member tries to sneak into U.S. as illegal immigrant child

An MS-13 gang member tried to sneak into the U.S. last week by posing as an Unaccompanied Alien Child (UAC), the Border Patrol said Tuesday, hoping to take advantage of lax American laws that give UAC a quick foothold in the U.S.

Agents said Herbeth Geovani Argueta-Chavez was part of a group of 61 illegal immigrants nabbed as a group in Arizona.

“During initial interviews, he falsely claimed to be an unaccompanied juvenile in hopes of being released,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.

Agents continued to press Mr. Argueta-Chavez, who then admitted he was actually an adult, not a minor. He also admitted he was part of MS-13 — though he claimed he was trying to leave the gang.

CBP said Mr. Argueta-Chavez, 18, is from El Salvador.

UAC from El Salvador and other Central American countries are given special treatment compared to Mexicans. Under the law, court decisions and government policy, they are required to be processed and quickly released to social workers, who then try to connect them with sponsors who will take them here in the U.S. — despite their unauthorized status.

They are supposed to show up for deportation cases, but most do not, instead disappearing into the shadows.

UAC have created a new pool of recruits for Mara Salvatrucha-13, the violent gang better known as MS-13, here in the U.S.

But Mr. Argueta-Chavez’s case underscores another danger: gang members attempting to make bogus UAC claims to gain a foothold.

‘Defend Europe’ Activists Expose Migrant Surge Across French Alps

DAN LYMAN APRIL 24, 2018

French officials have been compelled to address the crisis unfolding in the Alps after activist group ‘Generation Identity’ staged an operation challenging migrants crossing from Italy into France with the aid of left-wing militants.

Roughly 100 Generation Identity youth activists established a volunteer patrol of the Col de l’Echelle mountain pass, which thousands of African migrants have used to travel illegally into France – sometimes hundreds in a single day, according to locals.

The group unfurled massive banners reading, “Closed Border. You Will Not Make Europe Home! No Way. Back to Your Homeland!” and deployed helicopters, drones, vehicles, and portable fencing to monitor and deter incoming migrants as part of their ‘Defend Europe’ mission.

While the campaign achieved immediate success in peacefully turning away some migrants, a mob eventually overpowered border police, throwing objects and charging through the feeble blockade.

Sputnik News correspondent Edouard Chanot reports that ‘no borders’ operatives escorted the migrants to waiting cars to be transported to a safe house in France, while police observed.

Due to major media coverage of the event, French officials were forced to comment on the episode and the broader issue at hand, with the government pledging to ‘boost security’ at the crossing – which could ultimately translate into measures intended to prevent further embarrassment by Defend Europe or similar groups.

French interior minister Gérard Collomb denounced the “posturing” by Generation Identity, while offering little comment on the illicit conduct of the migrants or open borders radicals.

“I condemn the gestures (by Generation Identitaire) at Col de l’Echelle,” Collomb wrote. “Only government authorities have the right to take action in our territory.”

French MEP and former presidential candidate Marine Le Pen also weighed in, pointing out the hypocritical and “comical” reaction of leftists in the French National Assembly who were indignant that it had not been police forces controlling the border.

Generation Identity asserts that they will continue the Defend Europe mission in the Alps, as well as other locations.

ASSOCIATED PRESS SUGGESTS CRITICIZING JOURNALISTS IS “HATE SPEECH”

Blames Donald Trump for hostility towards media

Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com – APRIL 25, 2018

The Associated Press published an article today suggesting that criticizing journalists was a form of “hate speech”.

In a piece entitled Hatred of journalists on the rise worldwide, watchdog says, the AP cites a report by Reporters Without Borders which concludes that people like Donald Trump are to blame for encouraging hostility towards the media.

Citing the group’s concern that leaders in democratic countries “no longer see the media as part of democracy’s essential underpinning,” the article then suggested that journalists were victims of hate speech.

“Hate speech targeting journalists is amplified on social networks by government-friendly trolls in India, Russia and elsewhere,” states the article.

The “hate speech” designation is somewhat bizarre as the term usually only applies to religious, ethnic or racial groups.

While the article blames Trump, trust in mainstream media was plummeting years before he even announced he was running as president.

Is this another trial balloon to chill free speech? Respondents in the comments section were not impressed.

“Trump is only expressing our long held beliefs,” remarked one.

“For the most part, in the US anyway, they are not reporters any more. They have become political hacks,” added another.

“If the “journalists” would stop trying to “change” the world, and just report the news like they are supposed to they probably wouldn’t be hated so much,” commented another respondent.

New Video Exposes JIMMY KIMMEL For Being a Complete Pervert & Sexual Harasser

President Trump has been living rent-free in the not-so-funny comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s head since he became the Republican candidate for President in 2016.

The unhinged liberal TV host has spent the 18+months on his show, and as the host of the lowest-rated Academy Awards Show in recent history, going out of his way to attack President Trump and his character. It’s interesting to note that Kimmel has a keen interest in criticizing Trump for stories surrounding his alleged sexual misconduct.

But what happens to the credibility (and the career) of a guy who spends a majority of his on-air time attacking our President for alleged sexual misconduct, when an old video emerges of him pretending to commit sexual acts against an unsuspecting woman? In the video, it appears as though Kimmel is setting up a woman to look through a viewer at something in the distance, while he acts out having explicit sexual relations with her behind her back. Is this disgusting behavior okay with liberals?

By the way, this is not just an “allegation”, this is an actual video that shows how little regard Kimmel has for women.*WARNING…some viewers may find the content of this video to be disturbing.

Watch:

Kimmel’s attacks aren’t limited to President Trump, however. Last week, Kimmel came under fire by FOX News’ top-rated host, Sean Hannity for attacking First Lady Melania Trump’s accent while she read to a group of kids during the White House Easter celebration. Here’s how Kimmel’s responded to Hannity, after he called him out for his unfair attack on Melania:
