The Briefings Unmask The Liberal Activist Media

These are not journalists. They are left-wing, highly politicized activists. They cannot abide the President and even more they cannot stand his supporters.
Trump Briefing

The other day The Wall Street Journal ran this editorial headlined:

Trump’s Wasted Briefings
The sessions have become a boring show of President vs. the press.

In which the WSJ said this:

“The briefings began as a good idea to educate the public about the dangers of the virus, how Americans should change their behavior, and what the government is doing to combat it. They showed seriousness of purpose, action to mobilize public and private resources, and a sense of optimism. Mr. Trump benefitted in the polls not because he was the center of attention but because he showed he had put together a team of experts working to overcome a national health crisis.

But sometime in the last three weeks, Mr. Trump seems to have concluded that the briefings could be a showcase for him…..

…Mr. Trump opens each briefing by running through a blizzard of facts and numbers showing what the government is doing—this many tests, that many masks, so many ventilators going from here to there, and what a great job he’s doing. Then Mr. Trump opens the door for questions, and the session deteriorates into a dispiriting brawl between the President and his antagonists in the White House press corps.”

Stop right there.

Well aside from the incomparable value of the briefings in the strictest medical sense, the very clash between some members of The White House press corps and the President raises exactly the question of why this happens in the first place. And the answer, there for all Americans to see, is plain as day.


These are not journalists. They are left-wing, highly politicized activists. They cannot abide the President and even more they cannot stand his supporters.

These are not journalists. They are left-wing, highly politicized activists. They cannot abide by the President and even more they cannot stand his supporters. The latter, of course, famously described by Hillary Clinton as the “deplorables.”

In fact, what Americans have gradually come to realize is that the country is dealing with the politicization of everything by the Left. Pick a field.  It could be

MUST READ
journalism, the law, the media, organized religion, sports, Hollywood and more. And time after time you find a field filled with people who view themselves as political activists first, then and only then a member of whatever profession they are nominally supposed to be part of.

It could be CNN’s Jim Acosta or the NFL’s Colin Kaepernick or Hollywood’s Debra Messing or the Supreme Court’s Ruth Bader Ginsburg or the Mainline Protestant United Church of Christ’s General Minister and President, The Rev. Dr. John C. Dorhauer. The list goes on and on.  But what these people and so many others – specifically including some of those “journalists” in the White House press room –  have in common is their devotion to the sacraments of the American Left.

Jim Acosta

CNN’s Jim Acosta

This is why so many of these people have such open disdain for Fox News and want it shut down, its various hosts – Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and others – specifically silenced. What they cannot abide is dissent from the Gospel of Leftwingism.

At its core, the American Left and its cousins around the globe are would-be totalitarians. It’s their way – or the highway. There is nothing they will not use to exert control over their fellow Americans.

And yes, that specifically includes the use of the China virus. Politicizing it, weaponizing it, and using it as an excuse to do everything from investigating the President – yet again – and shutting down Fox News.

Which is one of the reasons exactly why these presidential briefings are so important to televise – and why CNN plays a game with selectively televising them. They quite starkly unmask the “journalists” in the room as what they really are: left-wing political activists.

    Conservatives are fighting a war on 2 fronts, which is always a losing proposition. The one front, which is the Left’s efforts to overturn the Constitution and install themselves as a permanent ruling class, should be easy to defeat. The vast vast majority of Americans believe in individual freedom, both economically and socially, so why can’t we rid ourselves of this scourge? Because Conservative are NOT full-throated advocates for individual liberty.

    There is no such thing as a “Left-wing” freedom. Every social position, taken by the Left, involves some form of government coercion. Abortions aren’t merely a “choice”, they are a government funded money-laundering scheme that is encouraged by Leftie activists. Actual freedom doesn’t require Federal funding.

    Our Federal government is not equipped, nor was it ever intended, to be the keeper of our morals or to protect us from our own poor choices. The same principles of free enterprise that work to create the most dynamic economy are equally applicable to our social lives. Freedom works every time it is tried. Suppression and prohibitions fail miserably every time they are tried. We need to harken back to Jefferson’s opinion that he would rather suffer the inconveniences of too much freedom than from too little.

    The Left have no sense of logic… The leaders of the Left know that.. They take advantage of it in order to gain power.. They attack and disparage the capitalist system, yet every one of them make hundreds of thousands of dollars and more from the markets they invest in.. Capitalism at it’s best. They live in huge homes and fly around all over the world, creating gigantic carbon footprints, yet attack and disparage everyone else for doing far, far less..They push for illegal immigration in order to increase their voter base, but place these illegals in cities far away from their own cities.. That barely touches the surface and the Left haven’t enough common sense to grasp how they’re being used…Ignorance at it’s zenith…

      You had better check your information, this is the number one News Station, mainly because unlike CNN, they tell the truth, or just continue to be ignorant.

    • Bob Campbell 11 April, 2020 at 21:07

      Bruce, Fox new has been the number one cable news station for 15 years in a row. Try to learn the truth. Google how many people view fox news everyday. Then google all the rest. Your making a fool out of your self.

  7. bruce 11 April, 2020 at 14:28

    america is not going to forget that trump played down the virus which caused thousands of our seniors to die before there time.

  8. Dexter L. Wilson 11 April, 2020 at 14:40

    There is no way that Biden can handle everything that Trump has since the onset of the virus?

    • bruce 11 April, 2020 at 14:40

      sorry your wrong. remember for the first 6 weeks, while the virus spread, trump lied and lied about the virus.

      • bruce 11 April, 2020 at 14:47

        plus biden has good people behind him. trump has his lying to protect daddy family, criminals and his red neck base to back him up

        Here’s what Trump was doing about coronavirus while Democrats, liberals and their media were obsessing about impeachment:
        December 31: China reports the discovery of the coronavirus to the World Health Organization.
        January 6: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a travel notice for Wuhan, China due to the spreading coronavirus.
        January 7: The CDC established a coronavirus incident management system to better share and respond to information about the virus.
        January 11: The CDC issued a Level I travel health notice for Wuhan, China.
        January 17: The CDC began implementing public health entry screening at the 3 U.S. airports that received the most travelers from Wuhan – San Francisco, New York JFK, and Los Angeles.
        January 20: Dr. Fauci announces the National Institutes of Health is already working on the development of a vaccine for the coronavirus.
        January 21: The CDC activated its emergency operations center to provide ongoing support to the coronavirus response.
        January 23: The CDC sought a “special emergency authorization” from the FDA to allow states to use its newly developed coronavirus test.
        January 27: The CDC issued a level III travel health notice urging Americans to avoid all nonessential travel to China due to the coronavirus.
        January 29: The White House announced the formation of the Coronavirus Task Force to help monitor and contain the spread of the virus and provide updates to the President.
        January 31: The Trump Administration:
        Declared the coronavirus a public health emergency.
        Announced Chinese travel restrictions.
        Suspended entry into the United States for foreign nationals who pose a risk of transmitting the coronavirus.
        January 31: The Department of Homeland Security took critical steps to funnel all flights from China into just 7 domestic U.S. airports.
        February 3: The CDC had a team ready to travel to China to obtain critical information on the novel coronavirus, but were in the U.S. awaiting permission to enter by the Chinese government.
        February 4: President Trump vowed in his State of the Union Address to “take all necessary steps” to protect Americans from the coronavirus.

        The ONLY thing you heard out of the Democrats at that time was impeachment. Now they are blaming the president. Where were they? Trying to impeach a president and calling travel bans (that probably saved many lives) racist.

    lets not forget that trump lied about the virus like the chinese and Iranians did causing untold thousands of there own people to die before there time

    • jhngoodell 11 April, 2020 at 15:17

      Lets not forget, Trump closed the border when the ignorant Democrats wanted to keep them open to the Chinese.

  10. bruce 11 April, 2020 at 14:48

    good photo of you Jim. Keep at it! you have a hard job dealing with trump and his base of real pathetic liars.Trump lies every time he comes to the podium. Every single time. that’s how he won in 2016 with lies to the american people

  11. jhngoodell 11 April, 2020 at 15:17

    Jim Acosta is certainly not a journalist, he is a lying Leftist Hack for CNN and has no business being called a journalist, however, by the same token, CNN has no business being called a New Media, they are just an extension of the Democrat/Communist Party.

  12. marijooneill 11 April, 2020 at 11:26

    Im so FED UP, with the idiots in the leftists media, and the DEMOCRATS, who care nothing about we the people, ot this Country. They hate TRUMP because he has called them out as FAKE NEWS and also called out the loons in the DEMOCRATIC, party, who do the same. This “virus” is killing people and all they want to do is try and DESTROY our PRESIDENT and this COUNTRY . They can all “ROT IN HELL” and sooner or later they will reap what they sow.

  13. Dick Ellis 11 April, 2020 at 12:12

    FAKE NEWS IS THE GARBAGE PIT OF AMERICA NOW! EVERY TIME THEY ATTACK THE GOOD NEWS FOLKS WE HAVE TO KICK THEIR ASS’S HARDER TO DISCOURAGE THEM OF WANTING TO CONTINUE THERE MARXIST CRAP ANY MORE! ATTACK THEM HARDER THAN THEY DO TO OUR PEOPLE! TIME TO BURY THE SOROS DEEP STATE GANG FOR EVER!

  14. Rosalee C 11 April, 2020 at 16:27

    Jim Acosta is a very mean spirited person. Always putting out wrong information. Does not want the United States to continue to grow, and with this virus, he is not for keeping the peoples spirits up, but brings them down, at every turn. He is not worthy of being in the White House press core. His “pass”, must revoked….

  15. ajp4to 12 April, 2020 at 09:28

    The president better be careful with these briefings. In my view, he is coming off as a repetitive disorganized bully…

  16. Mere Marlo 12 April, 2020 at 13:47

    The MSM has become the DCP (Democrat Communist Press) and they are never to be believed. As for President Trump advocates — could it be they are the only real Americans left in our country? We Are The People who believe in truth, justice and American values which have served and sustained our country well for over 200 years.
