Mr. President! Mr. President, over here! Mike McCarthy a goner?

You want due process? I got some due process for you!

fdrs-press-conferences

The You Tube-accredited lawyers here at Blaska Policy Werkes (and Tanning Salon) despair of new “rights” created out of various penumbras. 

A judge this morning ordered the President to restore the White House “hard pass” press credential of CNN  bad boy Jim Acosta. On what grounds? According to Breitbart:

CNN Justice Department correspondent Jessica Schneider reports the judge said the White House did not provide Acosta “due process” in revoking the pass.

The CNN lawsuit called the revocation “an unabashed attempt to censor the press and exclude reporters from the White House who challenge and dispute the President’s point of view.”

Justice Department lawyer James Burnham argued that Acosta was guilty of “inappropriate grandstanding” and deserved to lose his access over “his refusal to comply with the general standards of a press conference.” Burnham said that the White House is essentially President Trump’s home and office and that he has some right to decide who can and can’t be there. “There’s no First Amendment right to access the White House grounds,” Burnham said. Further, Burnham also pointed out that CNN has dozens of other staffers with White House credentials, so excluding Acosta would not harm the network’s coverage.

What’s next? A judge will order Trump to call on Acosta at the next press conference? The judiciary will order the chief executive to answer his questions? In full and in complete sentences?

CNN had something like 50 accreditations to the White House. Further, Jim Acosta’s First Amendment rights have not been denied. He remained free to spout whatever nonsense he wanted. If Jim Acosta has a constitutional or property right to a hard pass to the White House, so does our team of crack reporters and opinion bullshitters here at Blaska Policy Werkes. We want in!

Quit wasting Aaron Rodgers

Is Mike McCarthy about to be fired? Fourth and 2 on your own 33 yard line? Normally, you punt. But with under 4 ½ minutes in the game and down 3 points, you gotta go for it. And for Gawd’s sakes, run Aaron Jones!

Growing sense McCarthy to be fired

People ready to see McCarthy fired

Packers can’t keep letting McCarthy waste Aaron Rodgers

McCarthy should be fired

Growing sense Packers will replace McCarthy.

    Lord Blaska,
    Yes, get chu a White Ouse Pass. Equal opportunity, even for those who reside in the sticks.,

    Seconding your call for Mike McExcuse to be fired. However, to that request, PLEASE include the same for Paul Chryst. OMG…….best back in college football; best line; two great linebackers; decent kicker………………and what type of record for the offensive creativity of the ghost of John Jardine? Hello? The play designs and play-calling on offense have been as simplistic as the post-game interviews. Yes, I know, with a 30-word vocabulary, it IS difficult to explain, but for over $250,000 per game for the HC, is anyone satisfied the price is reasonable? How about a refund for lack of quality craftsmanship? Nice guy, to be sure, but out of his league.

    And, they (at least Mensan Brain Trustees @richard lesiak & @Bill Everley) still think that there was a Blue Wave rather than a insignificant blue swirl like the one you’s see in airline toilets.

    Sam Donaldson raked Reagan over the coals much more intensely than Acosta questioned Trump. If you wanna be POTUS, you need thick skin. Trump does’t even have thick foreskin according to Stormy Daniels.

    • Gary L. Kriewald says:

      Donaldson asked probing and precise questions regarding Reagan’s policies; he genuinely wanted clarification; he wasn’t out to showcase his hatred of Reagan (though he may very well have hated him, it was impossible to say based solely on the questions he asked him). Acosta’s sole purpose is to display his hatred for Trump and thereby to bask in the adulation of his peers. Donaldson was confrontational for all the right reasons, Acosta for all the wrong ones. Yet more proof of how the MSM has abandoned even the pretense of “objectivity” in the years since reporters like Donaldson did their job as it should be done.

    Bill Everly nails it (aside from the Stormy snark – I don’t need that imagery). Trump wants to handle press like he’s a tinpot dictator. No president has gets to pick his press coverage, nor should he. He’s really bad at this democracy stuff.

      Hopey Changey: “what I understood was the principle that the free press was vital.”

      Free Press, Hopey? What a bunch of steaming Horse Hockey!

      But don’t take my word for it, for that let’s toss it over to the late Helen Thomas (no Righty, she)

      “ ‘Nixon didn’t try to do that. They couldn’t control (the media). They didn’t try.’

      “ ‘What the hell do they think we are, puppets? They’re supposed to stay out of our business. They are our public servants. We pay them.’

      ”Thomas said she was especially concerned about the arrangement between the Obama Administration and a writer from the liberal Huffington Post Web site. The writer was invited by the White House to President Obama’s press conference last week on the understanding that he would ask Obama a question about Iran from among questions that had been sent to him by people in Iran.

      “ ‘When you call the reporter the night before you know damn well what they are going to ask to control you,’

      “ ‘I’m not saying there has never been managed news before, but this is carried to fare-thee-well–for the town halls, for the press conferences,” she said. “It’s blatant. They don’t give a damn if you know it or not. THEY OUGHT TO BE HANGING THEIR HEADS IN SHAME!” (bolds/caps mine)

    Check your facts. FOX News supported Acosta…………..not Trump.
    Check your legal analysis………..listen to Mark Levin’s analysis from Friday at http://www.marklevinshow.com/audio-rewind/ and select the date of Nov. 16.

    Levin might be able to enlighten you……..providing you can thumb through your dictionary as you strive to understand his vocabulary. When you’ve mastered Listening 101, come back an explain the Acosta case for us.

    Sooooo, yer a Pielke fan? And just like the CLIMATE CRIMINALS you cherry-picked what he said.

    What he actually said about the report is missing from yer spittle-flecked slobbering. Youse skim over that because it doesn’t that mesh with yer Chicken ($#!T) Little “The Sky Is Falling” narrative?

    Accounting for yer varied-n-many shortcomings, I’ll help out: he said the report was so embarrassing that it would affect views of future climate science.

    It needs evidence-based policy-making and not BULL$#!T policy-based evidence-making.
