CNN, which is under fire for broadcasting anti-Trump “Fake News” after a bombshell James O’Keefe report, partners with the U.S. federal government on drone research and has unprecedented Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval to fly drones over American citizens.
Will the Trump administration’s FAA pull the plug on CNN’s special government privileges — obtained during the Obama administration — now that O’Keefe has exposed the dishonest nature of the network?
“CNN has entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRDA) with the Federal Aviation Administration to advance efforts to integrate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) into newsgathering and reporting,” CNN announced in a January 2015 press release.
“Coordination between and among CNN, GTRI and the FAA has already begun. The FAA will use data collected from this initiative to formulate a framework for various types of UAVs to be safely integrated into newsgathering operations,” according to the release.
In August 2016, CNN announced that “it has become the first organization to be granted a waiver by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to fly unmanned aerial systems (UAS) over people in the United States. CNN received a certificate of waiver to operate the Fotokite Pro, a tethered platform that weighs less than two pounds, over uncovered people who are not directly participating in the UAS operation. As part of the waiver approval process, CNN demonstrated to the FAA that its operations could be conducted safely. CNN’s successful waiver application builds on its longstanding commitment to moving UAS policies forward for news organizations.”
The CNN Airport Network is the exclusive news provider for 50 U.S. airports, which CNN reportedly pays.
In 2001, the CNN Airport Network and the FAA teamed up
“The CNN Airport Network, which provides general news and information to travelers at 35 of the country’s busiest airports, began displaying an on-screen ticker showing real-time delays of 60 minutes or more at 28 major U.S. airports. The information is gleaned directly from the FAA’s Air Traffic Control Command Center in Herndon, Va., which offers the same type of information on the Web at www.fly.faa.gov,” according to the trade paper FCW.com.
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
