Lawyer Threatens to Sue ADL for Defamation of Ben Garrison
According to a report from the Washington Examiner, political cartoonist Ben Garrison was disinvited from the White House Social Media Summit.
Garrison, who has become one of the leading cartoonists during the Trump era, has been repeatedly smeared as “anti-Semitic” by his detractors.
Among them, has been the Anti-Defamation League, which has said that Garrison is “known for cartoons with right-wing, anti-government and conspiratorial themes.”
Ironically, the ADL has defamed Garrison with a cartoon that is falsely ascribed to him, which precipitated Garrison’s eventual removal from the White House Summit.
However, other individuals such as trial lawyer Robert Barnes are taking notice of the ADL’s libelous behavior.
He even threatened to sue the ADL for defamation if it persisted in smearing Garrison for a cartoon that he never even created in the first place:
It will be ironic to have to sue the “Anti-Defamation League” for…defamation. (ADL covered up racism previously when it suited their allies). Yet, they continue to libel @GrrrGraphics with a fake cartoon falsely ascribed to him. Retract, or get sued @ADL.

President Trump set up the Social Media Summit to talk about the “opportunities and challenges of today’s online environment” according to White House spokesperson Judd Deere.
Deere claims that the president “wants to engage directly with these digital leaders in a discussion on the power of social media.”
The White House did not confirm the full list of invitees, however social media powerhouses Facebook, Twitter, and Google all confirmed to have not received an invitation from the White House.
Some of the guests rumored to be in attendance at this event are conservative groups such as Turning Point USA, the Heritage Foundation, PragerU, and James O’Keefe of Project Veritas. BLP reported on President Trump expressing his disapproval with social media and its alleged bias towards conservative commentators.
On Friday, July 5, 2019, Garrison confirmed that he was among those invited to the summit. Garrison thanked Trump on Twitter for his original invitation saying “Honored to be invited to the White House! Thank You Mr. President!”

Garrison has been one of the fiercest proponents of President Trump’s America First agenda.
The cartoonist has built a reputation for exposing legacy institutions like the military-industrial complex and ridiculing the political establishment’s attempts to derail Trump.
Such attacks against sacred pillars of the political establishment do leave individuals like Garrison susceptible to attacks from the legacy media.
His latest disinvitation from the White House just goes to show how politically correct discourse has become in America.
Say anything outside the index card of allowable opinion and you might be branded as “anti-Semitic” or “racist”.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
