Ashton Birdie Whitty, a conservative from Berkeley, California, posted a video of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson interviewing a student who said that CNN scripted questions for their town hall debate on gun violence.
Whitty posted and commented on Carlson’s interview with Colton Haab, a hero who saved lives during the horrific shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida.
“Well Youtube removed my video. Claiming I was bullying,” Whitty told Big League Politics.
“The entire video was nothing more than my own commentary and reaction to Tucker Carlson’s interview. And the basis of my video was ‘These kids are not actors but CNN is using them to push their own political bias,'” Whitty said, referring to some Parkland students who have spoken out in favor of gun control. “I even made sure to say these kids aren’t actors.”

“Tucker Carlson’s interview was proof that while CNN may not be hiring actors, they are certainly picking and choosing who to represent the tragedy that was the Parkland Florida shooting,” Whitty continued. “They were using scripted questions as Colton Haab said in his interview. I think this only proves that CNN cares little about how to protect these students and more so about their own political agenda. They have gone out of their way to make a few number of students famous while silencing the ones with a different perspective. It’s frustrating as someone who has seen this on college campuses (UC Berkeley for example) to see this in high schools — especially after tragedy.”
“I was only commenting on Tucker Carlson’s interview. I was in no way targeting any group of people. I was commenting on CNN, a corporation, for using these kids’ faces and voices to push their own agenda,” Whitty said.
“And it’s also essential to point out I’m now being censored for saying this, for speaking out against a corporation for using these kids,” Whitty concluded.
Fox News’ version of the interview is still active on Youtube:
Colton Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC program at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School saved lived during last week’s shooting that left 17 people dead. But when he had questions for CNN’s Town Hall with lawmakers about the shooting, CNN refused to let him ask the question, and instead gave him a scripted question. Haab refused to attend the Town Hall for that reason.
During the shooting, when most students were running for cover, Haab jumped into action. Once he assessed the situation and realized what was going on, he began gathering students into a classroom, and he covered them in Kevlar mats that can both hide the students, and slow bullets if shot. Kevlar is a soft material often used in bullet proof vests.
Haab’s actions were heroic, and likely saved lives that day. But despite his heroism, CNN still refused to give him a chance to say what he wanted, and instead wanted to force him read a scripted question.
Rohlfing’s excerpt ends.
In the interest of full disclosure, I, Patrick Howley, worked for Tucker Carlson for years at The Daily Caller. He is an honorable man and an intrepid journalist with an unflagging regard for the truth. For his employees over the years, his show is the primetime TV realization of the amazing potential we saw every day in the office at our treasured editorial meetings. Censorship of his fans and of content featuring Carlson raises questions about the role of moderators on modern social media.
Alabama U.S. Senate Hopeful Tommy Tuberville Ran Wall Street Hedge Fund That Fell Apart Due to Fraud
Tuberville’s incompetence led to a hedge fund going down in flames.
After posting a mediocre record at Auburn University as a football coach, fledgling Alabama U.S. Senate contender Tommy Tuberville failed miserably on Wall Street founding a hedge fund mired in fraud.
Tuberville partnered with former Lehman Brothers broker John David Stroud over a decade ago to form TS Capital Management and TS Capital Partners. The ventures ended up sinking amidst fraud allegations, which resulted in Stroud being sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Tuberville did not end up in jail, but his involvement in the project led to his own investors suing him. The investors accused him of being involved in the fraud and neglecting his fiduciary responsibility to protect their investments. Tuberville reached a private settlement with the investors in 2013.
On the campaign trail, Tuberville has downplayed his role the failed hedge fund, claiming dubiously that he was only “an investor like the rest of them.”
“They sued me because I invested in it, and he used my name to get other people to put money in,” he said. “There was nothing ever implicated by anybody that I’d done anything wrong. I felt bad that he used my name.”
An examination of public court documents show that Tuberville is misrepresenting his role in the operation. Tuberville greeted potential investors and sold them on the venture, had business cards listing him as managing partner, and even leased his BMW and had health insurance provided through the business. Email records show that he was kept in the loop about the day-to-day operations of the company, including hiring.
Tuberville’s campaign chairman, Stan McDonald, noted that the candidate’s role in the hedge fund “was a big mistake, and he’s paid for it.”
“Coach Tuberville was as surprised as anyone to learn Stroud had lost all the money, including Coach’s. He never received a dime; it was a dead loss for him and his family,” Mr. McDonald said. “The Lord humbles us on many occasions, and this was such a moment for Coach.”
Overall, Tuberville lost $2 million from his Wall Street blunders. As is the case with many prospective politicians, Tuberville could not hack it in the private sector so he is attempting to get a government paycheck instead.
Big League Politics has reported on Tuberville’s campaign as he attempts to stop his “America First” opponent Jeff Sessions from reclaiming his Senate seat. Tuberville has been ducking Sessions, hoping to stay under the radar as he clings to a shrinking lead in the polls:
As the Republican primary runoff for nomination for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, football coach Tommy Tuberville is doubling down on a strategy of refusing to debate former Senator and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, leaving serious questions about his immigration policy positions unanswered.
Tuberville hopes to cruise to an easy victory on the basis of support from Donald Trump, who remains incensed at Sessions over a feud related to his former Attorney General’s recusal from Robert Mueller’s witch hunt Russia investigation. But Sessions has emphasized that the feud- now in the past- can’t be all that comes under consideration for Alabama’s Republican voters.
Tuberville steadfastly refuses to clarify some of his troubling statements related to immigration policy, including stating that the United States needs 400,000 Indian visa workers to provide labor for America’s corporations. Tuberville continues to rebuff attempts from Sessions to organize a debate to discuss actual policy before the July 14th runoff election, which will determine who will go on to face Democrat Doug Jones in November.
Sessions reiterated that Tuberville refuses to participate in a debate in a tweet responding to President Trump’s latest criticism of him, pointing out that Tuberville’s GOPe sympathies render him a suspect so-called supporter of the President’s ‘MAGA’ agenda.
In yet another demonstration of stark anachronism with Republican voters of today, Tuberville has even said that “we can’t worry about China” in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
In stark contrast with Tuberville, Jeff Sessions has what is almost certainly the strongest conservative track record on immigration policy of any former Senator or congressman. He’s almost single-handedly derailed several amnesty attempts, and most recently led the charge in calling for a federal immigration moratorium in response to the coronavirus recession that President Trump has partially implemented.
The GOP runoff primary election between Tuberville and Sessions will take place on July 14. The winner will go on to face incumbent Doug Jones in the general election in November.
