Video of the Prize Fight Pitting CNN’s Jim Acosta against Trump White House’s Top Policy Advisor, Stephen Miller; Teaser: It was a First-Round Knockout! (Tucker Carlson with Mark Steyn); Acosta Takes over Role of the Late Helen Thomas as WH Press Corps Disgrace

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix

Jim Acosta to Stephen Miller: “Are they just going to bring in people from Great Britain and Australia?”

Acosta: “You’re trying to engineer a racial and ethnic flow of people into this country.”

“The Statue of Liberty has always stood for to the world to send people to this country.” [Garbled, due to cross-talk.]

Stephen Miller: “Jim, I appreciate your speech, so let’s talk about this. In 1970, when we let in 300,000, did that violate your Statue of Liberty Law of the land?”

[Miller was mocking Acosta who, like his lefty colleagues and many Republicans, acts as if the Statue of Liberty were the Statue of Immigration. There is, of course, no such law, but try telling Acosta, et al., that.

Note that President Trump has not only the right, but a solemn duty “to engineer a racial and ethnic flow of people into this country,” but the Open Borders Menace has so perverted public opinion that no public figure can say that anymore.

As Tucker Carlson noted, media operatives like Acosta combine complete “ignorance” about immigration with “moral certainty.”

However, the really weird thing about such smug moral certainty is that the operating “morality” is what I call evilism. Evilists fight on behalf of colored cut-throats, homosexuals, anti-white racists, sexual psychotics, etc. They never fight on behalf of the virtuous.

To get back to the “prizefight,” it was like watching a world champion heavyweight go up against a flyweight. Stephen Miller is brilliant, while Jim Acosta … isn’t. Watching Acosta attempt to bushwhack Miller was like watching Tucker Carlson. Every night, Carlson invites gasbags form the racial socialist alliance on his show, to promote their genocidal agenda, and every night he knocks them out about as quickly as Miller knocked out Acosta. Carlson is brilliant, and extremely quick on his feet (quicker than yours truly). The points he makes are so close to our hearts out here in the stix, that it’s as if he had hidden mikes in the house, and sensors in our brains.

Yet there’s still more layers to the Acosta vs. Miller bout.

Acosta thought he was going to set up Miller, but it was Miller who had set up Acosta.

The press conference was over, but Acosta hadn’t yet had his shot at Miller, and so Miller extended it just for Acosta. He knew what Acosta was going to say, and he was ready.

Jim Acosta was not acting as a reporter, but as an editorialist, and an incompetent one, at that.

(Mind you, I did not get on the early, anti-Acosta bandwagon, in response to then-President-elect Trump’s refusal to take a question from Acosta at a January 11 press conference. Trumpists reacted with stupid, blind partisanship, condemning Acosta for his “rudeness,” when he persisted in shouting his question to Trump. If you consider reporters doing their jobs “rude,” then don’t watch the news, because you don’t want reporting. However, Acosta has long since ceased being a reporter.)

There’s nothing wrong with being an editorialist or columnist—I’ve done it, on and off, for 37 years—if you know what you’re doing, and you do it above board. It’s also possible to do opinion journalism, in which one combines facts and opinion. However, White House press conferences and briefings have always purportedly been limited to non-opinion reporters.

Back during the Bush II administration, Helen Thomas (1920-2013) would similarly launch tirades during White House press conferences and briefings, it was a national embarrassment. Thomas was then an octogenarian, leftwing, genocidal anti-Semite who had long before stopped being a reporter. She was the crazy old lady that Bush tolerated, and her racial socialist comrades celebrated.
“The New York Times said in its story about her [2010] resignation that two sets of rules applied to reporters covering the president: ‘those for the regular White House correspondents, and those for Helen Thomas.’”
By the time Bush II was inaugurated, Thomas wasn’t even nominally a reporter. She had quit UPI in 2000, and been hired by Hearst as an opinion columnist, yet no one had the nerve to tell a woman she was breaking the rules.

In 2010, Thomas was finally forced to resign, after she’d lectured a rabbi who was filming her that the Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go home" to Poland and Germany (idem).

And so, now we have Jim Acosta taking over the role of Helen Thomas.

Stephen Miller White House Press Briefing 8/2/17

Published on Aug 2, 2017

White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller and New York Times White House correspondent Glenn Thrush got into a heated tussle during Wednesday’s press briefing over immigration. Thrush asked Miller to cite a statistic to support the idea that American workers lose jobs to immigrant workers. Miller preferred to speak in more vague terms. Miller: Let’s also use common sense here, folks. At the end of the day, why do special interests want to bring in more low-skilled workers. Thrush: I’m not asking for common sense. I’m asking for specific statistical data. Miller: I think it’s pretty clear you’re not asking for common sense. If I could just answer your question. Thrush: Common sense is wonderful. Miller: I named the studies, Glenn. Thrush: Let me finish the question. Miller: Glenn, I named the studies. I named the studies. Thrush: I asked you for a statistic. Miller then took a shot at Thrush and his employer, The New York Time [sic]

“Maybe we’ll make a carveout in the bill that says The New York Times can hire all the low-skilled less-paid workers from other countries and see how you feel then about low wage substitution,” Miller said.

“I’m asking for statistics,” Thrush said again.

[Economist George Borjas has the stats, but Thrush was insinuating that Miller was lying, and that flooding the economy with cheap, foreign labor has no effect on American wages. Apparently, in Thrush’s world, the Law of Supply and Demand has been repealed.]
