CNN’s Jim Acosta Attacks Trump, Blaming Him for Deadly Events in Charlottesville

(News Busters) CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta unleashed a series of tweets throughout the day on Saturday blaming President Trump for the white supremacists rally and subsequently deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“These are the consequences of sanitizing white supremacists who seek to be rebranded as part of American ‘right.’ They are peddling hatred,” Acosta complained in his first tweet.

Acosta made no attempt to look at his own employer or the rest of the news media in the mirror for the amount of free publicity they’ve given neo-Nazis over the last few years, but that would require a level-headed kind of analysis that he lacks.

Even though Acosta wasn’t going to be pleased with whatever the President said, he offered this take beforehand:

    • Kbuzz

      We never had this problem under the Obama Administration. BLM, Polar bear hunting, teen mobbery/robbery, this is all Trumps fault. Since he came the Anti-fa was born, Snow(flake) storms, climate proliferation issues, russian collaboration – all Trumps fault.
      Thankgoodness the top notch reporting done by the MSM and CNN is on top of all this corruption.
      The Democrat Party is as sound as it has ever been under the firm guidance of Nancy, and with Maxine cheering on the sidelines…why…they cant lose.

          I doubt the circus would even want Pelosi, Waters and Crying Chuck Schumer. What a disgrace these three clowns are among the other clowns that are in Congress.

      The white supremists who attacked in Charlottsville are ardent trump supporters and he did not condemm these goups who are the instigators in this and committed one murdrer one and assulted many and there has been back lash even from many republicans on his despicable rsponse.

        Sorry 😐 your the expert. From now on all report news news to be filtered through you.👎🏻🖕

      • sweetqueen777

        You must be a CNN/MSNBC viewer. There were plenty of VIDEOS of Trump disavowing and condemning this behavior by ANYONE. You need to focus on the Extremist Loons on your own side of the fence. And, YES, they are in both camps of Opinion. Violence and Vandalism should be met with handcuffs and Jail time.

        • smilee

          Simple thinking people have yet to figure out that trump is a bigot and racist and has been all his life. Why the fierce push back to this man by both parties for his dispicable behaviors if he was not. You have only to watch him to figure out that truth and need no news program to see that so your attempts to use that stupidty as a diverson proves you are clueless.

    • richjack4

      Once again Acosta proves himself as an ignorant, non-intellectual who has lost all credibility due to a total loss of objectivity. If an asteroid were to crash into the earth, he would blame Trump!

      • Fed up!

        Is CNN stil on the air? Been 20+ years since I scrolled the TV guide to see if still there, but then that goes for all local, non-local MSM. Exception is Fox News on occasion.

      • Junius Graham

        These Progressive all drink from the same cup. They all know they are professing Lies, but will never admit it. May they all burn in the same fire.

        • sweetqueen777

          I strongly suspect that they WILL.
          There is absolutely NO LOVE IN THEM.

    • Rani

      It’s coming from George Soros and BO Adminnistration and all the looney tunes that were in it.

    • Flyby

      And the sorryos money pouring in to hurt Trump makes him a laughing stock. I think their monies are being pooled and split by the dems and the rinos.

    • Alan Bowie

      Agreed. There is always someone behind the scene pulling strings and pushing buttons, which is a requirement if you are working with ‘puppets’.

  • 27633171

    Why is anyone reporting what this sniveling little pantie waist has to say ? Look at his microphone and see what it says, CNN. That’s all we need to know.

  • crazybarry

    So, using the exact same logic, Obama is then responsible for all of the crimes, riots and murders committed by all of the liberal and minority hate groups in the country?

    • mrsgunnut10

      YEP AND THEN SOME. TSgt., USAF Retired.

    • Marilyn Durst

      Like Antifa – who, by the way, advocates, preaches and incites violence, just as they did in Charlottesville. The President didn’t mention them by name, either, but they are one of the “many sides” to which he referred. I find the existence of white supremacists abhorrent, just as I find the existence of antifa and all who advocate violence and hate abhorrent. This divisiveness predates this presidency and administration. We were promised that this nation would be “fundamentally transformed” and it has been done.

    • Kbuzz

      No no no. You can’t use logic…that has never been a Liberal/Democrat practice. “Do as I say, not as I do”…that is applicable democrat logic. Remember, Obama and the Dems reminded us that it was all Bush’s fault and they were there to fix it. After 8 years…it was still Bush’s fault, just like ObamaCare is Trump and the Republicans fault. Not the Dems fault that the Republicans cant get it right….See how that works?
      If you cant, then you must be on the Right side…

    • Richard Thompson

      I agree with Kbuzz. No logic. Here are the 4 rules when dealing with or debating a leftist:
      1) No Logic Allowed. It confuses them.
      2) No Common Sense Allowed. It confuses them.
      3) No Facts Allowed. It probably proves them wrong.
      4) No Previous Examples Allowed. It probably shows their hypocrisy.

  • Mike Villalobos

    Tired of this shyte. Just plain exhausted. MSM labels protests by White American movements as “peddling hatred” but when BLM, ANTIFA, NBPP and every major liberal arts University hold violent protests they are labeled “peaceful protests!” I do not condone any violence whatsoever – but the President accurately defined the acts taking place in Charlottesville when he condoned “ALL” violence. Like in the expression – “it takes two to tango!” Where is the “outrage” of the anti-white protesters violence by the MSM and liberal legislators?

    • sweetqueen777

      They are BLINDED by their HATRED. The only One able to change their black hearts is GOD. They are beyond our human reasoning. Praying for our Nation, and Leaders Every DAY.

  • rivahmitch

    Acosta will only be “satisfied” with one of two possible outcomes: (i) total abandonment of the traditional American standard of living and individual rights; or (ii) his death. My preference is for the latter outcome.

  • Ed

    Pull his WH credentials. Acosta is NOT a reporter but an ignorant hate monger, just another who finds continual fault with President Trump, and the MSM media is largely made up of those kinds of idiots. Acosta doesn’t seem to have a grasp of what is news and what is just hateful spewing of words like every Leftist does. How did Acosta become a senior WH correspondent? Who gave him those credentials? CNN is the least watched MSM network for good reason. It is “reporters” like Acosta that turn viewers and listeners away because of the tiresome tirades of lies, exaggerations and strong support of Leftist ideology that true Americans, (and that leaves out Democrats, Progressives, Liberals, Leftists and those of their ilk who are trying to destroy it), detest.

    • Ed Price

      I would pull his credentials as well. Might be a wake up call! MSM is so out of touch with America. These dumb twits really believe we can not discern what is being said. But that’s ok because the more they say it, the more infuriated we get. 2018 will be a pivotal year for congressional elections – the polls will show most seats going to Dems but the results will yield solid victories for Repubs and Independents. Sad faces will reappear, tears will be shed and there will be a knashing of teeth all from the MSM. And they will all ask the question WHY? The answer is simple – YOU ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH AMERICA!

  • Nick Mastrovito

    So, is it Obama or HRC’s fault when a Dem murders a Republican Committeeman in PA or wounds a US Congressman in DC?

    • Forrest K. Wright

      evil begets evil nothing new about that .

  • defcon888

    When the Liberals protest and it gets violent…the left says “Well, we can’t control them, they are just expressing their 1st amendment rights”. When the right does the same thing…..”racists, bigots, hateful”….smh

    • Margie

      Soooo true!

  • Janelle

    Mr. Acosta doesn’t realize that we already know his I.Q. and shoe size are similar. No need to prove it, repeatedly.

  • David McAllister

    How idiotic! “President Trump is responsible for our violence against conservative Americans “. Yes, you dolt, you do sound that stupid.

  • Jeff

    I think ol Jim is afraid to look in the mirror, afraid of what he might see, that being him and his so called network news are part of the problem, all this garbage the so called news they’ve been peddling for the better part of a year now, starting prior to and since Mr. Trump was elected President, I’m sorry but you can try and blame Pres. Trump all you want, but that’s just not the case, if he thinks that one man is responsible for the climate in the USA, he is sorely mistaken, all Jim needs to do is look right in that mirror and he will see, it’s folks like himself, his network and all these people on the left that’s created this climate of hate, you can try and blame our President all you want but it’s not gonna work, people have had enough, look in the mirror Jim or are you afraid of what you might see.

  • buffalobob826

    BLM is a hate group and is the racist left. This country needs a leftist cleansing.

    • richard black

      sounds like a colonoscopy !!!

      • rocky49

        I believe it is covered under Obama care 😉

          right…right !!!

        • Forrest K. Wright

          NOthing is covered in Obama care except prices going up for coverage .

    • smilee

      WOW Racists see them as such and ignore all the white supremist groups and they are the ones who came to Charlottsville and attacked it. BLM is on defense and the white groups are on offense. . One reponding to mistreatments the other creates them.

      • Forrest K. Wright

        we can blame the Dems. and there followers sounds like Obama in the back ground ??? .

      • Fedup

        You got it backwards sweetie. Unite The Right was the ONLY group with the permit. The Bowels Lives Matter and Antifa fascist terrorists showed up specifically to cause problems. There’s a reason the Antifa fascists wear masks and it ain’t cause it’s cold.

        • smilee

          Your see evrything that is reality as backwards. That is why we know you are racists as your response makes very clear.

          • Fedup

            Not racists. Just based in reality unlike you leftist morons. You leftists are the ones who were so butt hurt from losing that you all get participation trophies. Wait till the real world smacks you upside the head. Hey, when your mommy and daddy die, will you still get to live in their basement?

          • smilee

            Such immaturity, GROW UP CHILD!!

          • Fedup

            You’re the one that needs to grow up. You lack critical thinking skills due to your inability to think for yourself. You follow only what is fed to you by the liberal media. It’s evident in this situation especially since you put the blame on those who had the LEGAL right to hold the protest. The BLM and Antifa showed up ILLEGALLY without a permit for one reason only. They are the ones responsible for the violence but you’re too brainwashed to see it.

          • smilee

            LOL that is clearly your problem and your silly attempts to project your imperfections on me will not work. Your thinking only produces some very false assumptions on your part that people who really know how to think do not make without strong supporting evidence and yours is all made up in that simple thinking mind of yours. You racists have always blamed the innocent for you justificaftion to express your hatred, bigotry and racism, Go tke a cold shower and grow up.

          • Fedup

            There is nothing “innocent” about BLM. They don’t even need counter-protesters to riot, loot and destroy everything in their path. The racist card gets old and holds no meaning. Do your research and you’ll see who had the legal right to be there. Even left leaning news stated over and over again about the governor cancelling their permit AFTER the other groups showed up. No sense in anyone bringing the truth to your pea brain. All you’re going to do is lie, lie and lie some more. Nice try though.

          • smilee

            Such idiotic BS, What motivates them is what counts, the BLM is opposed to discrimination the pro white supremeists waving not americn flags but nazi and confederate flags and they support discrimination and are anti american the BLM is not, Patrioits stand up for constitiutional rights which the BLM does and not the pro nazi and pro confederate alt right who stand against our constitution and are not patriots and are unamerican I support those who stand up for what is right and not those opposed to what is right. like you do,

          • sweetqueen777

            Nothing RACIST in any of these responses.
            You people see hatred everywhere you look, because those are the green goggles you are wearing.

    No, not Trump’s fault! The past 8 years of Obama did this! He has succeeded in dividing our once great America!! He set this up and now I think it is instigated all the more by Hillary and Obama ….to get the news off of them! And to get President Trump out of office…. to save the legacy of Obama! Such evil!! His legacy is the destruction of America!! That’s how he will be remembered.

    • Forrest K. Wright

      not totally true but very close to the truth .

  • Alan Bowie

    Brain dead Acosta. He is blaming the wrong people altogether. This was not a ‘white power’ or nazi type deal as it was meant to appear. All indications from the people involved are that it was another HRC/DNC/Soros/Obama propaganda show to denounce conservatives. Many of these people were paid to show up and start trouble. It was known before they even got permission to hold a rally. It is, again, leftists doing what they do best. PROPAGANDA. I am sure Dunce Acosta is even aware of this, but truth and facts have never been able to hold his idiocy back. Since there was a death involved, these leftists that choreographed the spectacle need to be prosecuted. Enough Hollywood charades. They are becoming even more deadly.

  • Betty Sakai

    Jim Acosta gets paid for being an entertainer who hates the American middle class’ representative President Donald Trump. It’s amazing he’s allowed to sit in at the White House press briefings. Educated middle class people who are not into pretend or fantasy do not listen to CNN or to Jim Acosta. Both are irrelevant to productive lives.

  • Louie Rey

    They must have cut his report short because if I’m not mistaken Acosta also blamed the Hindenburg disaster on Trump. Oh, and also the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby and 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina and, well, you get the picture. Surprisingly Acosta somehow completely overlooked the racial tensions that grew and were inflamed by Trump predecessor Hussein who ended up being wrong on the Michael Brown incident and the Eric Garner incident and that Black professor’s situation and on and on and on. Somehow those things didn’t register with Acosta. What a pathetic POS.

    REAL people, with real jobs, and real responsibilities, see what’s happening. Liberal propaganda is not as effective anymore. REAL Americans recognize bullshytt when they see it. The elections of 2018 will tell us whether or not America is lost – or just “re-booting”. Listening to people talk in the stores, bars and restaurants in my area, President Trump is more popular than ever.

  • GreyHairandGreyMatter

    Au contraire! Why?

    Johns Hopkins and Fairfield Universities

    Similar to the President and millions of other Americans, I naturally deplore the senseless abhorrent carnage that occurred Saturday in Charlottesville VA. Conversely, I have a slightly different posture/suggested tact than probably most people concerning the carping media constantly hell-bent to poke/stoke criticism of our President in an apparent feigned attempt to coerce fostering healing our nation/our apparent racial divide. Why? I respectfully believe we need to step back a moment and to examine closely one of the salient factors that in my opinion helped to precipitate triggering this dastardly event in Charlottesville.

    The VA Charlottesville City Council voted to remove the statue of the Commanding General of the Confederate Army General Robert E. Lee from a public park. Quite frankly, after so many intervening years to besmirch, to impugn so ignominiously General Robert E. Lee’s justifiable place, stature and memory in America’s/American history albeit warts and all was/is an egregious mistake in my opinion.

    If the Charlottesville, VA City Council hadn’t voted/explicitly issued such a controversial/misguided edict, I personally don’t think Charlottesville, VA would necessarily/realistically have been ground zero for a White Supremacist rally. Really! Sometimes proverbial “discretion is the better part of valor” and a “null decision,” a positive decision to do nothing in management science,[In this case I think/respectfully believe a “null decision” was called for if matters had been thoroughly thought through] would have been/is an optimal propitious posture concerning current longstanding statues of Confederate leadership/luminaries. What do you think?

    Misusing Robert E. Lee
    Abraham Lincoln Amnesty Oath Andrew Johnson Appomattox Charlottesville Civil War General GrantHarpers Ferry John Brown Mexican War Robert E. Lee statue Slavery sovereign states surrenderVirginia Washington College white nationalism
    George Rasley, CHQ Editor | 8/14/17
    On April 12, 1861, the day secessionists in South Carolina bombarded Ft. Sumter to fire the shots that opened the American Civil War, then-Colonel Robert E. Lee was perhaps America’s most accomplished soldier.
    Lee had served with distinction in the Mexican War, leading a reconnaissance patrol that discovered the means by which the Americans defeated the Mexicans at the battle of Cerro Gordo. He had served as Superintendent of West Point, had supervised the construction of numerous coastal fortifications, and most recently, Lee Robert E. Lee Statuecommanded the forces that captured abolitionist John Brown and the gang that had attempted to seize the government arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia and start a slave rebellion.
    As America moved inexorably toward Civil War, General Winfield Scott, the highest ranking American general, and a hero of the Mexican War, told President Abraham Lincoln that he wished Lee to command the Union army. Lee, who on March 28, 1861, had ignored an offer of command in the Confederate army was offered the command on April 18, 1861, just six days after Ft. Sumter.
    Lee refused the command on the grounds that he was a Virginian and owed his first allegiance to the state he believed was a sovereign entity with the right to stay in or leave the Union as it saw fit. He would, he said, not make war on the Union, but he would defend the state of his birth.
    When Virginia seceded from the Union Lee said, “I shall never bear arms against the Union, but it may be necessary for me to carry a musket in the defense of my native state, Virginia, in which case I shall not prove recreant to my duty.”
    Why would Lee choose the state of Virginia over the United States of America?
    While Lee espused the paternalistic attitudes many Nineteenth Century Americans felt toward Africans, it certainly wasn’t because he believed slavery was just; he wrote in 1856, “There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil.”
    Lee wasn’t pro-slavery, he believed, as did many others of his day, that the United States of America was merely an association of sovereign states that could, if they chose, leave it or dissolve it.
    That this view had been forcefully rejected by his fellow Southerner President Andrew Jackson who wrote in a proclamation rebutting an earlier move by South Carolina to nullify federal law, “I consider, then, the power to annul a law of the United States, assumed by one State, incompatible with the existence of the Union, contradicted expressly by the letter of the Constitution, unauthorized by its spirit, inconsistent with every principle on which It was founded, and destructive of the great object for which it was formed,” did not back in 1861 make it any less persuasive to many in the South and even some in the North.
    We all know of Lee’s legendary conduct of the Civil War campaigns in defense of Virginia, his defeat at Gettysburg and his eventual surrender to General Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia.
    Were Lee’s erroneous view of the Union and the Constitution and his conduct of the Confederate armies during the Civil War all we knew about Robert E. Lee there would be little controversy in removing his statues from their places of honor.
    But it isn’t what Lee did before and during the Civil War that makes him such an important figure in American history – and one that should be honored – it is what he did after the Civil War that earned him the memorials erected to his memory and a place in history that should be honored by all.
    When Lee surrendered at Appomattox he also signed a parole document swearing upon his honor not to bear arms against the United States or to “tender aid to its enemies.” Lee’s surrender and his immediate parole were essential in preventing the Civil War from continuing as a destructive guerilla war that would have continued to rend the country indefinitely.
    General Grant’s terms provided that all officers and men were to be pardoned, and they would be sent home with their private property – most important, the horses, which could be used for a late spring planting. Officers would keep their side arms, and Lee’s starving men would be given Union rations.
    General Grant told his officers, “The war is over. The Rebels are our countrymen again.” Although scattered resistance continued for several weeks, for all practical purposes the Civil War had come to an end.*
    Just six weeks after Lee’s surrender at Appomattox President Andrew Johnson issued a Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon to persons who had participated in the rebellion against the United States. However, there were certain excepted classes and members of those classes had to make special application to the President.
    Robert E. Lee was among those excepted, and there were plenty of people in the North, including members of Congress, who wanted to see him tried and executed for treason.
    However, there was one man who refused to countenance such a course of action; General Ulysses S. Grant. Grant rightly understood that fulfilling the terms of his parole of Robert E. Lee were essential to healing the wounds of the Civil War.
    Just two months after the surrender at Appomattox Lee sent an application to Grant and wrote to President Johnson on June 13, 1865:
    “Being excluded from the provisions of amnesty & pardon contained in the proclamation of the 29th Ulto; I hereby apply for the benefits, & full restoration of all rights & privileges extended to those included in its terms. I graduated at the Mil. Academy at West Point in June 1829. Resigned from the U.S. Army April ’61. Was a General in the Confederate Army, & included in the surrender of the Army of N. Va. 9 April ’65.”
    On October 2, 1865, the same day that Lee was inaugurated as president of Washington College in Lexington, Virginia, he signed his Amnesty Oath, thereby complying fully with the provision of Johnson’s proclamation.
    Lee’s greatest legacy is not his campaigns, which are still taught at military institutions around the world, but his contribution to national reconciliation.
    Although he had ostensibly retired from the national spotlight, Lee became a voice of moderation and patient compliance. In his public letters, a number of which were reprinted in newspapers, he urged that “all should unite in honest efforts to obliterate the effects of war and to restore the blessings of peace.”
    Lee vowed to do “all in my power to encourage our people to set manfully to work to restore the country, to rebuild their homes and churches, to educate their children, and to remain with their states, their friends and countrymen.”
    Thus, when Congress ordered the drafting of new constitutions in the former Confederate states and disgruntled southerners contemplated a boycott of the system, Lee announced that it was “the duty of the [southern] people to accept the situation fully” and that every man should not only “prepare himself to vote” but also “prepare his friends, white and colored, to vote and to vote rightly.”**
    Lee’s code of conduct demanded submission to federal authority. With characteristic self-discipline, he put the past behind him and moved forward. Many southerners proved willing to follow Lee’s example and through them the United States was not only reunited, but rebuilt into the preeminent military and economic power it is today.
    Erasing Robert E. Lee from history – or celebrating him as a symbol of “white nationalism” – is a grave error; not only does it distort history to suit the purposes of elements in society that Lee abhorred, it misuses one of the greatest symbols of the social compact that reunited the country after four years of brother against brother bloodshed and hatred.
    George Rasley, Editor of ConservativeHQ.com served on the Indiana – Tennessee Civil War Commission. His ancestor Rep. Joseph H. DeFreese sponsored the post-Civil War legislation to readmit Tennessee to the Union and many in his family fought with distinction on the Union side in the Civil War.

    Well, the good news is small donors have figured it out. RNC has collected double the donations the DNC has – $75 million to $38 million. the donations from small donors is through the roof. BATW, was Acosta ever a legitimate journalist?

  • icemancold

    CNNs JIM ACOSTA needs to place blame for THE VIOLENCE IN CHARLOTTESVILLE where it belongs and that is in the lap of the RACIST MUSLIM HUSSEIN OBAMA, Al SHARPTON and JESSIE JACKSON. OBAMA is the reason these Southern cities are destroying HISTORY and the Southern Heritage by removing MONUMENTS and STATUES of the CONFEDERACY. The CIVIL WAR was not fought for SLAVERY it was fought because the SOUTHERN STATES were tired of UNFAIR TAXATION BY THE NORTHERN STATES resulting in the SOUTHERN STATES supporting the north.!!

  • Washington Watchdog

    As a retired journalist who covered the presidency, I once looked up to CNN. Today it is a bunch of anti-Trump talking heads. They have even bought Ana Navarro who still can’t get over the fact that Trump and not Jeb Bush is president. CNN has no credibility and President Trump appears to be beating them into the ground as they slip to No. 12 in the ratings.

  • Carole

    Jim is trying to get his own “hate” show on CNN. We all know by now that the Media and Liberals have brought a whole new meaning to the word.

  • Kate

    Who reads or listens to Jim Acosta and least of all CNN?? Even their headlines scream negativity towards Trump. What a waste of energy they are.

  • Danny S.

    Well this is actually good news . It is good that people like Acosta and CNN have given such vast powers to a president. It was CNN and most of the other liberal MSM that never ottered a word when terrorists attacked here in America . It was these same two faced journalists who toed the Obama line of turning their backs never calling terrorism what it is both here and abroad. It was these same MSM hacks who never took a stand against radical groups who showed their hate for Americans or America. Where was CNN when the Doctor at the military base shot all those people while yelling Alla Aakbar at our military base? Not a word that this was terrorism. Not a word that this doctor was known to had made threats before but everyone was afraid to say anything because being politically correct was more important. Where was CNN when the City of Ferguson was burning. Well I’ll tell you CNN blamed it on the police. Where was CNN when the middle east went into complete collapse. I’ll give you a hint it wasn’t on Hillary or Obama.
    There has always been far left and right groups and almost all have been condemned by Americans on both sides of the political spectrum. I believe 80 percent of America don’t need to be told what side of this action to stand on. The president shouldn’t have to respond to the obvious purpose of these hate groups. CNN and the MSM are more responsible for these hate groups actions by not doing their job for years and by the MSM’s obvious silence when it comes to groups like BLM , Antifa, and others that have popped up during Obama’s presidency.,
    Where was CNN and the MSM when the war on religion was brought forth. The war on the police. The war on the one percent ( which I’ll remind everyone made more money then ever in our history under Obama.)
    Where was CNN and the MSM when they failed to investigate The Clinton Foundation The IRS, Etc,

I don’t buy it. Neither does America. The leftist, liberal bullshytt is coming to an end.

    FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A KOREAN WAR VET, AND A CHRISTIAN. I AM AN AMERICAN AND PROUDLY, I VOTED FOR TRUMP. I AM 86 AND HAVE NEVER SEEN A MORE QUALIFIED PERSON TO BE PRESIDENT.

    TRUMP NEEDS TO FIRE EVERYONE CONNECTED TO THE DEMOCRATS AND REALLY INVESTIGATE THE REAL MUSLIM PROBLEM WE ARE FACING.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212 WAS PASSED IN 1952 AND THIS LAW SHOULD BE ENFORCED. IT BANS ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE TRYING TO DESTROY US, THAT INCLUDE ALL MUSLIMS.

    • Bill Rehs

      no Bob, Walter is a Patriot, one who cares about this country and the direction it’s heading. You are a leftist who calls anyone a Tax Evader, who tries to cut taxes owed to a minimum and if possible to zero tax owed, yet when you do the very same, which most likely 98% of people do, Tax Evader does not apply. What in your opinion qualifies one to be a Putin Puppet,? you most likely don’t even know what such terminology implies. I wouldn’t be throwing around the ignorance card very much if I were you because you just may burst your bubble.

        Bob is a radical left wing lugnut! He makes as much sense as a fart in a sneaker!

        Billy – I assume you’re just playing dumb regarding a Tax Evader. An example would be a Crook who hasn’t paid Taxes for AT LEAST 18 YEARS. Does that smell like anyone you know, bunky?? An other example for you Billy. Putin Puppet: Someone who licks Putin’s boots while taking orders. If anyone can throw around the “Ignorance” card, I’m betting on you, skippy!!

        • Bill Rehs

          You’re not a crook unless you avoided paying taxes illegally. The fact he took advantage of loopholes in taxation, DOES not make him a crook. If anyone is/was a Putin puppet it was the Obama administration along with the Clinton’s. Their dealings with the Russians are fact! The Trump-Russian collusion hype is nothing more than distractions for the corrupt anti-american liberals and it’s just a matter of time before their dirty deeds all come out, at least what they haven’t been able to destroy yet. By the way, you’re attempt to bring others down to your level is no more effective than your idols run for POTUS👏

          • Bob

            Billy boy – Be patient and the Independent Counsel will answer all your questions regarding crooks who don’t pay their taxes and lie about their deductions such as contributions. Meanwhile, tell us about all your agenda accomplishments such as Jobs, Economy, Infrastructure, Education and Health Care…..

          • Bill Rehs

            Oh yes what the liberal msm wont tell you about is the failing obamacare and liberals attempts and successes in delaying and or blocking of your aforementioned attempts by Trump to push them through. Nor will you hear of any of his successful policies that have benefited the country or America’s fight against terror, because liberals are against anything that is anti-globalism. Trump is trying to set this country straight once more, but all you liberals care about is continuing to lead this country into a downward spiral, the same course you had set us on and wish to continue. Of course you hate Trump, of course you fear him, because he resists your agenda. You socialist Liberals are destroying this country and you just dont care or are to short sighted to see it, or worse yet, want it.Take your rants and socialist ideals elsewhere, your brainwashed and I have no interests in wasting any further time with you. Good riddence Marxist.

  • Mat50

    Yes, Jim Acosta, there are consequences when you advocate for the extermination of the race of people who largely built this country, when you remove landmark statues and rename parks to flatter other ethnicities in their stead. We are not all as passive and suicidal as so many Europeans seem to be.

  • OK for empty heads but my thoughts say:
    .1 For over 100 years up to covert jihadist Obama’s era, I never heard a complaint about any civil war monument.
    .2 I am convinced an investigation would prove the initial complaints, its publicizing (advertising), the core planning and organizing of these protests (both sides) were funded by groups affiliated with Obama (a Soros puppet) and the anti-American Establishment.
    .3 This effort is to destabilize our country’s patriotism and progress made in social and racial integration.
    .4 These protests would stop quickly if legislation were passed to hold any person, group or entity affiliated with funds or training in any part of such a gathering or protest must be: personally, and individually liable and responsible for all costs, damages, arrests, injuries … and deaths.

  • Rani

    Jim Acosta should shut his stupid mouth. He was brought down by Steven Miller and you’d think he would be embarrassed. Now he’s spouting another piece of stupidity by blaming our President for what happened in Charlottesville. The blame should be placed on the Mayor and Governor MacCauliffe for telling the police to stand down so that the rioting could get out of hand and what happened was because of them, not our President. Get your facts straight Jim Acosta because you are the most stupid person trying to pass for a reporter. You wouldn’t know how to report real news. You are an idiot and so is your network. CNN should be pulled from the airways.

    If you want to assign blame, blame yourselves. It’s the people like Jim Acosta and news outlets like CNN who have given a free pass, and often open support, for the terroristic actions of the violent leftist movements like antifa and BLM….who are never condemned. Trump condemned all of them, but he didn’t say what YOU wanted him to say, and didn’t condemn just one hate filled faction, he condemned all of them. If anyone outside these groups is to blame, it almost entirely falls on the media.

Im sure you can think of others, but you get the gist of it.
    WE BLAME his / acostas network, mslsd, cbs,nbc,abc, etc. They gave fuel during the Omammy reign that made race relations worse. The Omammy years, holder, sharptongue, low-retta, etc., tries to make things issues of racism WHEN THEY WERE NOT and LAME stream media was their moutpeice and propaganda agents, so to speak.

  • There he goes again – does Jim Acosta ever get it right? If anyone is to blame for the horror of Charlottesville it is Obama who fomented racial divisiveness in America for eight long years. Racism is racism whether it is white on black or black on white. Being an American needs to be the common denominator that binds us together no matter what color we are.
