What did China get for its approximately $31 million given to The Big Guy? According to Kevin Downey, Jr., quite a bit and none of it was good for the US.

During Trump's tenure, Jim Acosta was verbally combative with the press secretary and reaped the result of that behavior-he had his press pass revoked. He filed a lawsuit and eventually got his access back. 


News from Townhall says that Biden is getting rid of all the current press passes (they keep using the phrase "hard pass", which might mean a physical card but isn't explained) and issuing new ones--with certain provisos. 

At issue are new rules, announced in May, that limit the number of journalists who are eligible for a White House hard pass and give Biden’s press team greater power to expel journalists it doesn’t like.

The rules require pass holders to first obtain “accreditation by a press gallery in either the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, or Supreme Court.” 


The new rules stipulate that reporters must work full time for “an organization whose principal business is news dissemination.” But the rules go even further by requiring reporters to act in a “professional manner,” “respecting their colleagues, White House employees, and guests,” and “not impeding events or briefings.”

What makes me roll my eyes is a statement in the letter the White House sent out. They claimed, "We are writing to inform you that the White House intends to revise the policy on press hard passes to be consistent with that of prior administrations."

Right. Consistent with prior administrations. Uh huh. Some press people are upset and are talking about this, but I'm sure the MSM is very happy to keep those uppity bloggers and non-MSM news people out of the way.

A representative in the Massachusetts state house is trying to pass a law that will severely curtail second amendment rights by requiring gun owners to jump through all sorts of hoops to keep a gun. It's a mess, and there are games being played about which committee will hear the bill--and seemingly an attempt to avoid having to hear the bill in committee altogether. 

Wallace says he’s heard from firearms instructors who are warning that not only will this expanded instruction likely require four to five days of training and a cost into the four figures, but would put a complete halt to all mandated training until the state promulgates the new standards and instructors can get up to speed and be certified for training. Since this training is required to simply possess a firearm in the state as well as to carry one, it will be virtually impossible for would-be gun owners to exercise their Second Amendment rights for an undetermined period of time, and only at great expense once the new rules are promulgated.

Given what governments are doing, I wouldn't be surprised if they slow walk the standards as much as possible so no one can have a gun.

The law seems really stupid given what the Supreme Court has already asserted.

Damn that's cheap for a president. Clinton got $500 million before the election and lost!

A federal court just handed Biden's Ministry of Truth a big defeat

Judge Doughty issued a preliminary injunction forbidding numerous federal agencies, including the FBI, the Justice Department, and the Department of Homeland Security, as well as many individuals within the executive branch like White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, from communicating or meeting with: "[S]ocial-media companies for the purpose of urging, encouraging, pressuring, or inducing in any manner the removal, deletion, suppression, or reduction of content containing protected free speech posted on social-media platforms."

I'm sure they already all have private email accounts so there is no evidence.
