White House Correspondents Association president Jeff Mason of Reuters attacked President Donald Trump from the podium at his Correspondents Dinner and pledged that the mainstream press will “remain vigilant.”
“An attack on any of us is an attack on all of us…There are threats to press freedoms here in the United States. We must remain vigilant. The world is watching,” Mason said in his attack speech against Trump.
“This year looks a little different,” Mason said, referring to Trump’s absence from the glitzy event to instead hold a rally in Pennsylvania.
“We are here to celebrate the press, not the presidency,” Mason said.
“The press is still in the White House briefing room and we are still on Air Force One…With all the tension in the relationship, that has sometimes been overlooked,” Mason noted. He made reference to “one notable and lamentable exception” when reporters were kept out of the press room. Trump revoked CNN’s press credentials during a briefing that occurred during CPAC.
“Undermining that by seeking to de-legitimize journalists is dangerous to a healthy republic,” Mason said of Trump.
“We are not Fake News. We are not failing news organizations. And we are not the enemy of the American people,” Mason said to big applause.
Mason thanked Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein for being there, then the event handed out scholarships to a diverse array of students from Howard University, Columbia, Northwestern University, and Berkeley, where riots have been raging for the cause of shutting down conservatives’ free speech.
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.
