‘Free Press Act’ would require White House
to hold regular televised press briefings

Washington Times, by Andrew Blake

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/15/2017 1:09:06 PM

The White House would be required to hold at least a couple on-camera press briefings each week if a Democratic lawmaker musters support for a House bill being offered. Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut introduced the Free Press Act on Thursday, a legislative proposal that aims to increase transparency within the Trump administration by mandating two on-camera press briefings per week. “The White House has begun to dramatically, and in an historically unprecedented way, reduce the media and therefore the American people’s access to the thinking of the president,” Mr. Himes said in a statement. “And that’s not healthy.”

Comments:
Other than these perpetrators of "fake news" mostly looking to see their soundbite on the "Evening News," why exactly do they need this access to the White House the we don´t have? It would be simpler if some new way, like tweeting questions could be used. After all, their lengths are limited to 140 characters. The press secretary can pick which Tweets are important to US, more than the constant, useless "gotcha" diatribes by a profession that plagiarizes itself in lockstep to the dRATS beat. There should be a "Free Press Act" for US that requires them to name sources

Seems to me that this act would be unconstitutional.

What we need is an honest press act. Media needs to be held accountable for its lies and slander. Yellow journalism is responsible for the ongoing violence and bloodshed. The strategy of the left fromnthe time of Lenin and Stalin is seize and hold power by bloodshed.

#2 is right, it would be unconstitutional. The president and his staff have the right to speak -- and not to speak -- just like everyone else.

The name of this "law," the Free Press Act, is downright Orwellian. Some freedom.

I was thinking along the lines of #4. These obscure Congress critters are just using this opportunity to get some face time while they poke a stick in the bicycle wheels of the Trump administration.

Another way? Get the whole crowd together, make them wait for 30 minutes or so (“stuff happens”), read a statement and hand it out. And not take questions. Or take three questions. Rotate questioners.

If it wasn’t such a colossal waste of time, this could be great fun.

We have 3 branches of government,the judiciary, the legislative and the executive.
One branch of government cannot tell the other how to conduct their business unless there is a violation of the constitution.
All the president would have to do is nothing.
How would congress enforce such a law?

Even if they could get it passed, wouldn´t Trump need to sign it before it went into effect??

I say Sean Spicer (or his designated replacement) could go over to Congress and give the press briefings in front of the camera set up by C-SPAN, with or without allowing questions.

Seems to me also, #2. The other branches have oversight and responsibilities to weigh in on the activities of the executive, but they do not have veto power or authority to micro-manage, Marbury v Madison notwithstanding.

As to the "rights" of the media: who picks the "authorized" media? They should be free per the First Amendment, but nowhere does the Constitution say that they are "entitled". Nobody elected them.

And the Constitution does not even require the POTUS to present his SOTU to Congress in person.

But who adheres to the Constitution anymore - including and especially the courts? /s

Posturing - Just Posturing

All their other meme´s are faltering and going by the wayside so they need another windmill to fight - It´s just posturing so they can act like Mel Brooks in Blazing Saddles - Harrumph, Harrumph, Harrumph...

Above posters are correct, The Donald would have to sign it for the legislation to become law - but, by liberal, progressive, communist, democrap thinking, the Constitution is only valid when they need to hold it over a Conservative´s head. Otherwise, it´s dynamic and can be ´adjusted´ when need be.

Mr. President, keep up the good work. MAGA

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book:
Make way for the pity party
Washington Times, by Cheryl K. Chumley    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/27/2017 12:54:34     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton, of “I Should’ve Won the White House!” fame, apparently isn’t content to deliver 10- and 20-second talking points from her national podium about the dang Russians who worked with President Donald Trump to give him that presidential title. She’s gotta write a book about it, too. That’s right. Clinton’s new book will reportedly double down on the Russian election interference angle — as well as one that rings in former FBI chief James Comey as a heavy factor in her loss, too. She just wants to get the story out, her friends privately say. “She really believes that’s why she lost, and she wants to explain why in no

Anthony Scaramucci finally has his White House job, but he still stands to profit from an ownership stake in his investment firm SkyBridge Capital. The incoming White House communications director earned $4.9 million from his ownership stake in SkyBridge in addition to more than $5 million in salary between Jan. 1, 2016, and the end of June, when he joined the Export-Import Bank, according to a financial disclosure filed with the Office of Government Ethics. The disclosure form hasn’t been previously reported. The disclosure highlights the extensive wealth Scaramucci has accumulated in his career —

The US Justice Department on Wednesday argued in a major federal lawsuit that a 1964 civil rights law doesn’t protect gay workers from discrimination, thereby diverging from a separate, autonomous federal agency that had supported the gay plaintiff’s case. The Trump administration’s filing is unusual (Snip) "The sole question here is whether, as a matter of law, Title VII reaches sexual orientation discrimination," says the Justice Department´s brief. "It does not, as has been settled for decades. Any efforts to amend Title VII’s scope should be directed to Congress rather than the courts."

The European Union´s top court has ruled that the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas should remain on the 28-member bloc´s terrorism blacklist. The Court of Justice (ECJ) overturned a General Court ruling, which had said there was not enough evidence to keep travel bans and asset freezes on Hamas. The lower court had said in 2014 the listing was based on media reports, not decisions by "competent authorities". But the ECJ said such decisions were not needed to keep groups on the list. In Wednesday´s ruling, the Luxembourg-based ECJ said decisions by the competent authorities were only required for the initial listing of groups or

Washington - Anthony Scaramucci, President Trump’s new communications director, vowed on Tuesday to crack down on leaks from the White House, threatening to fire everyone in the press office if necessary to stop aides from disclosing West Wing business to reporters. “I’m going to fire everybody — that’s how,” Mr. Scaramucci told reporters in the White House driveway, asked how he planned to identify who had been leaking to the press and ensure that the disclosures stopped. He said he had authority directly from Mr. Trump to do so. “You’re either going to stop leaking, or you’re going to get fired,” he said.

Washington - A U.S. Navy ship fired warning shots toward an Iranian vessel near the northern Arabian Gulf on Tuesday after the vessel came within 150 yards (137 meters), a U.S. official told Reuters. The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the USS Thunderbolt fired the warning shots after the Iranian vessel ignored radio calls and the ship´s whistle. The Thunderbolt was being accompanied by several U.S. Coast Guard vessels. The Iranian vessel appeared to be from Iran´s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the official added. Years of mutual animosity had eased when Washington lifted sanctions on Tehran last

New York - Children whose sexual characteristics don’t neatly align with the norm have for decades faced surgery to rearrange their anatomy to resemble that of more typical boys and girls — long before they were old enough to have a say in the decision. But now the practice is under assault, as never before. The American Medical Association is considering a proposal discouraging it. Three former U.S. surgeons general say it’s unjustified. And on Tuesday, Human Rights Watch and InterACT — a group advocating for intersex youth — are releasing a detailed report assailing the practice and urging Congress to ban it.

The House rejected Monday a plan to allow the Department of Veterans Affairs to shift $2 billion from other programs to cover a sudden budget shortfall in its Choice program of private-sector care following opposition from veterans´ groups. The vote was 219-186 on a bill to provide a six-month funding fix, falling short of the two-thirds majority needed to pass. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi joined other members of her party in voicing objections after veterans expressed concerns about cuts to other parts of the VA. The Choice program offers veterans federally paid medical care outside the VA and is a priority of

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do
