There’s been much hand-wringing by the mainstream press over the past week after petulant CNN propaganda man Jim Acosta had his White House press credentials revoked after repeatedly hijacking press briefings and then putting his hands on a female White House intern.
“Press Secretary Sarah Sanders lied,” CNN said. “This unprecedented decision is a threat to our democracy and the country deserves better. Jim Acosta has our full support.”
Now, video has surfaced of a 2009 incident when a black female Christian reporter was physically dragged out of a press area.
Reverend Brenda Lee was working for the Georgia Informer at the time, and she had a press pass for the briefing.
“All of a sudden, the staffer member – a male, white – left and this time he comes back with four people,” Lee said. “And so they said they wanted me to follow them, and it’s like, you know what, I’m here to get a story. What is the problem here.”
Video shows Lee being physically dragged out of the event by several Secret Service members. The Indianapolis Star was one of the few outlets to cover the event at the time. She reportedly wanted to ask the president questions about his stance on “traditional marriage.”
“And then the officer said ‘we can do this the easy way, or we can do this the hard way,'” Lee said. “One person immediately dropped out, but the other three persisted in dragging me past the press and back to the area where the security people were.”
There was no national outrage. There were no think-pieces from mainstream press outlets about what this meant for the state of the First Amendment and the freedom of the press in America. Why not?
Because it was Obama, the media’s darling, who ordered this abomination. Not President Donald J. Trump. Truly despicable.
Supreme Court Rules That Foreign Soros-Backed Operatives Do Not Have First Amendment Rights
The ruling was against the Soros-backed Alliance for Open Society International.
The Supreme Court issued a ruling on Monday making it clear that a major front of progressive billionaire oligarch George Soros does not have 1st Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution.
In the case of Agency for International Development v. Alliance for Open Society International, Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Samuel Alito, and John Roberts ruled against 1st Amendment right for the Soros front. Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented against the majority while Justice Elena Kagan did not take part in the case.
The Alliance for Open Society International hoped to soak up federal funds earmarked to stop HIV/AIDS throughout the world. However, they hit a snag due to an act of Congress banning any group that supports prostitution from taking these funds. The pro-hooker leftist group attempted to sue to get around that act of Congress, but were rebuked by the conservative majority. Kavanaugh wrote the majority opinion for the case.
“We appreciate that plaintiffs would prefer to affiliate with foreign organizations that do not oppose prostitution,” Kavanaugh wrote. “But Congress required foreign organizations to oppose prostitution in return for American funding. And plaintiffs cannot export their own First Amendment rights to shield foreign organizations from Congress’s funding conditions.”
“Those foreign organizations are legally separate from the American organizations. And because foreign organizations operating abroad do not possess constitutional rights, those foreign organizations do not have a First Amendment right to disregard the Policy Requirement,” he continued.
“In sum, plaintiffs’ foreign affiliates are foreign organizations, and foreign organizations operating abroad possess no rights under the U. S. Constitution,” Kavanaugh concluded.
Justice Thomas wrote a concurrence to Kavanaugh’s opinion in favor of the ruling as well. He went even further than Kavanaugh in supporting Congress’ prohibition on issuing HIV relief funds to organizations that support prostitution.
“The Policy Requirement does not violate the First Amendment, regardless of whether it is applied to respondents, respondents’ legally distinct foreign affiliates, or any other organization, foreign or domestic,” Thomas wrote.
The Soros network is unhappy about the ruling and the fact that they will be denied the federal funds because of their international support for the flesh trade.
“The Supreme Court upheld the U.S. government’s quest to impose its harmful ideological agenda on U.S. organizations and restrict their right to free speech,” said Patrick Gaspard, president of the Open Society Foundations.
“The Anti-Prostitution Pledge compromises the fight against HIV by impeding and stigmatizing efforts to deliver health services. Condemnation of marginalized groups is not a public health strategy,” Gaspard added.
Regardless of their whining, the decision is final. The ruling could have the cascading effect of denying foreign Soros-backed operations any constitutional protections in terms of their alleged support for terror groups such as Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA as well.
