Establishment Reporter Attempts to Claim Credit for Cernovich’s Priebus Scoop

Published

on

Author and journalist Mike Cernovich has once again scooped the establishment media, and once again a mainstream hack is attempting to take credit for news that he broke.

Just over an hour before President Donald Trump tweeted his announcement that General John Kelly would be replacing Reince Priebus as the White House Chief of Staff, Cernovich announced an impending shakeup on his Twitter feed.

Cernovich wrote that a source close to the president had told him that Priebus had been told that he is officially out at 3:29pm. So, when the Trump sent out his tweet at 4:49pm, the stunned eyes of the mainstream media were immediately focused on the Gorilla Mindset author.

Hilariously, Maggie Haberman of the New York Times attempted to take credit for “having the scoop,” despite the fact that she had actually tweeted that Priebus being replaced was simply “being floated,” meaning that it was hardly a sure thing.

“Maggie Haberman is trying to take credit for my scoops. Why can’t she give credit where it’s due? Stealing credit is fake news,” Cernovich told Big League Politics.

Cernovich, being a beloved figure in the pro-Trump media world, quickly had an army of support that began calling Haberman out on her false claim.

Meanwhile, desperate establishment types attempted to downplay the fact that Cernovich — a man they have consistently labeled as a troll, or “fake news” — has been repeatedly providing massive, well sourced, reporting to the public.

As Buzzfeed reported in May:

“Since April, Cernovich has broken a number of significant national security stories, many of which have been subsequently confirmed — at least in part — by mainstream outlets. In early April, he correctly reported that former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice had requested to unmask the identities of Trump associates. Days later, Cernovich tweeted, “Breaking news! Possible air strikes by the U.S. in Syria tonight” just 30 minutes before President Trump authorized the evening’s attack. He followed that up with another story that the national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster, had drawn up a potential plan to bring ground troops into Syria. A number of details in the story were confirmed days later by Bloomberg.”

Following Cernovich’s scoop on the Rice unmasking story, Bloomberg reporter Eli Lake attempted to claim credit for breaking the news.

“The difference here is that at least Eli had been working on the story. Haberman specifically said Kelly wasn’t going to get the position. Two hours after saying Kelly wasn’t anything more than a trial balloon, she claimed credit for the scoop,” Cernovich told Big League. “Shameless!”

The New York Times enjoys slinging mud at those who don’t subscribe to their liberal viewpoints, and branding alternative media as “fake news,” yet they seem to be late on many of the biggest stories of this administration. If Anthony Scaramucci is correct, now that Priebus is gone, they may be even later.

SOLITARY: Michael Avenatti Transferred To El Chapo’s Former Cell In New York Jail

Federal prosecutors aren’t inclined to give Avenatti a break.

Published

on

New legal documents published Monday night reveal that showboat attorney and former cable news star Michael Avenatti has been transferred from a California jail to an infamous New York jail after violating the terms of his pre-trial agreement.

Avenatti was arrested at a hearing of the California Bar Association last weekend.

New documents published by his attorney surfaced Monday, revealing that Avenatti was transferred from California to New York over the weekend and jailed at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Avenatti is currently facing criminal charges related to an alleged extortion of Nike, in which the showboat attorney is said to have threatened the sporting company with legal and press campaign against it if it failed to provide him with millions of dollars.

The documents assert that he has been housed in a cell formerly occupied by Mexican Cartel boss El Chapo, an infamous global criminal who has since been transferred to a federal prison in Colorado known as the most secure in the country.

In another strange twist, the Metropolitan Correctional Center was the location of infamous billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s detention and controversial “suicide.”

Avenatti’s lawyers are asking for him to be removed from protective custody and placed in general population in order to effectively litigate his ongoing court case.

With the once-hyped potential presidential candidate literally being housed in El Chapo’s former jail cell, it’s hard to think of a more dramatic character arc for the celebrity lawyer. Around a year ago, Avenatti was still exploring the possibility of a campaign for the Democratic nomination.

As he fights against criminal charges that could carry a penalty of a life sentence in prison, it appears unlikely that Avenatti will be getting anywhere with any political ambitions anytime soon.
