CNN’s ratings are down, and Jim Acosta is looking for relevance.
To that end, Acosta has taken to confronting Republicans over Donald Trump’s allegations of voter fraud in the last election.
But Jim Acosta was shocked to hear what one top Republican claimed about the 2020 election.
North Carolina freshman Republican Madison Cawthorn was one of the Members of Congress who spoke at the January 6 rally at the Capitol.
Acosta approached Cawthorn about still supporting Trump even though Acosta accused Trump of inciting an insurrection.
“What are your thoughts on associating yourself with the former president after he gave that speech on January 6 and provoked an insurrection at the Capitol?” Acosta asked. “Why associate yourself with him?”
Cawthorn rejected the premise of Acosta’s question and crushed the media narrative that Trump incited an insurrection.
“Well, I think, Jim, you and I both know that I disagree with that assertion; the premise is that he invoked an insurrection,” Cawthorn responded. “I think he spoke at a rally. What happened on January 6 is despicable, and people should be prosecuted that broke the law. I don’t think there was any provocation from anybody that spoke that day.”
Acosta then asked Cawthorn why he still considered Trump the leader of the GOP and why he wasn’t pushing the party to move in another direction, even floating the idea of Cawthorn displacing Trump as the GOP standard bearer.
Cawthorn again rejected that premise claiming Trump was still the leader of the Republican Party due to Cawthorn’s contention that the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump.
“I do look forward to being the future of the Republican party, but I think Donald Trump is leading the way on that. You and I know that we have a complete disagreement. I do believe the election was stolen . . .” Cawthorn responded.
Acosta pressed Cawthorn on that point noting that the court’s rejected all the legal challenges filed by Trump’s campaign and its supporters.
“Where is the proof of that? It was all rejected by the courts,” Acosta shot back.
Cawthorn replied that in his view the courts failed the public by not taking up the cases or dismissing the Trump campaign’s arguments.
“I believe the judicial system failed us,” Cawthorn replied.

A New York Times reporter went on TV and made one insane claim about the COVID vaccine
The American Left clearly wants to force every American to take the coronavirus vaccine.
Many leftists aren’t even hiding it anymore.
And now a New York Times reporter went on TV and made one insane claim about the COVID vaccine.
New York Times health reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and reacted harshly to Republican Governors pushing back against Joe Biden’s new federal coronavirus vaccine mandate.
Stolberg ripped Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts for pushing back against Biden’s national vaccine mandate, which forces companies with more than 100 employees to require vaccination.
Republicans see vaccination as an individual medical decision that Americans should be free to make on their own.
Leftists – like Stolberg – contend that vaccination is a requirement for being allowed to engage in everyday activities.
In her Morning Joe appearance, Stolberg complained about Americans claiming taking the vaccine was an issue of personal freedom claiming, “your personal choice ends where my right not to get killed by an infectious disease begins.”
So, a couple of things about what [Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts] said. First of all, in an infectious disease outbreak, getting vaccinated is not a personal choice. It’s not. It’s something that we do for the community. And this has been long upheld with legal precedent. Second of all, the governor sort of complaining Biden’s mandate failed to note that he, in fact, gave business an out. Their employees can opt for mandatory weekly testing. Third, he talked about there’s a long history with [mandates and other vaccines]. How do you think we got that long history? We got that long history because those vaccines were mandated. Some of those vaccines themselves created push back when they were first mandated because people didn’t know what to trust. The governor said people were cautious, but in an infectious disease outbreak, your personal choice ends where my right not to get killed by an infectious disease begins.
Many members of the corporate-controlled media – like Stolberg – are absolutely hysterical about COVID.
And one reason some Americans are hesitant to take the coronavirus vaccine was due to misleading reporting in the corporate-controlled media about “breakthrough cases,” which made it appear that the vaccine does not work.
The vaccines were initially billed as stopping transmission of COVID.
That turned out not to be true, but the vaccine is highly effective at stopping serious illness and death.
But to many Americans it looked like the medical establishment and corporate-controlled media lied to them about the vaccine.

MSNBC Guest Disrespected 9/11 With One Cheap Political Attack
Democrats and their Fake News Media allies are intentionally dividing America.
Not even the tragedy of September 11th is sacred.
And one MSNBC guest just disrespected 9/11 victims with one cheap political attack.
On the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, many Americans put aside their differences to honor the lives lost.
But it didn’t take long for partisan hacks to use the attacks to tear apart the country.
Left-wing historian Michael Beschloss did exactly that when he appeared on MSNBC with Chris Jansing.
During a discussion about 9/11, Jansing asked, “What’s the importance, Michael, of marking these moments of history, of preserving these stories? And frankly, bringing people together around them?”
Beschloss then took the opportunity to attack Republicans.
“Because all of us should be able to unite around the idea that we’re saving our democracy. That’s what those people were doing, those heroes were doing on Flight 93 and elsewhere 20 years ago tomorrow. Our democracy tonight is as much in danger, I think, as it was in 1860 before the Civil War and in 1940 before Pearl Harbor.”
Democrats have been using shameful hyperbolic language for years, but it’s only accelerated over the past five years.
“The right to vote is being taken away from people in various states. The legitimacy of elections is being undermined. We could be in a situation where the congressional election next year, in which certain people are elected to congress who are deprived of taking office, and the same thing even when a president is elected in 2024. That’s enormously dangerous. We need to follow in the footsteps of those heroes.”
Nobody’s “right to vote” is being taken away.
In order to bolster election integrity, people are being asked to show identification, which is a borderline requirement to vote in nearly every country around the world.
Also, Democrats don’t seem to have any problem asking Americans for vaccine passports to do things far less trivial than voting in elections.
And Democrats have challenged every Republican Presidential victory since 2000.
Prominent Democrats called Stacey Abrams the duly elected Governor of Georgia despite losing by 50,000 votes.
Moreover, it was Nancy Pelosi who tried to unseat GOP Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks who won by a mere six votes.
Democrats and the so-called “mainstream” media are tearing the country apart for power and ratings.
The Media Got Caught Telling Another Lie About COVID
The COVID-19 tyranny continues.
Politicians and journalists are intent on extending the pandemic into perpetuity.
But the so-called mainstream media got caught telling another lie about COVID.
There seems to be a concerted effort on the part of the corporate-controlled press to discredit the drug Ivermectin at all costs.
The drug has been in use for decades, and was the basis for a Nobel Prize in 2015.
Despite the drug’s profile, Democrats and their media allies continue to smear the drug that independent studies increasingly show is a reasonably effective therapeutic in battling COVID-19.
For this reason, the Left has smeared the drug as a “horse dewormer.”
While there is an animal version that features a higher concentration of the drug, the medication developed for humans has been used to cure river blindness and other maladies in people worldwide.
So it was particularly galling when the Associated Press ran a story about 70% of calls to poison control in Mississippi were about people ingesting Ivermectin.
Lo and behold the story was false and the paper was forced to print an update.
From the Associated Press:
“In an article published Aug. 23, 2021, about people taking livestock medicine to try to treat coronavirus, The Associated Press erroneously reported based on information provided by the Mississippi Department of Health that 70% of recent calls to the Mississippi Poison Control Center were from people who had ingested Ivermectin to try to treat COVID-19. State Epidemiologist Dr. Paul Byers said Wednesday the number of calls to poison control about Ivermectin was about 2%. He said of the calls that were about Ivermectin, 70% were by people who had ingested the veterinary version of the medicine.”
The corporate-controlled press had a conniption when podcaster Joe Rogan announced that he had COVID and one of the drugs he took was Ivermectin.
That’s when the “horse dewormer” propaganda kicked into high gear.
Rogan beat COVID in a couple of days.
It’s unclear how effective Ivermectin is, which would seem like a good reason to conduct a study.
However, there hasn’t yet been a comprehensive study with institutional support behind it.
The people in charge seemingly don’t want people taking a possibly game-changing, low-cost therapeutic drug with limited side effects.
They want everyone taking the vaccine no matter what.
And when those have clearly failed, the same folks who’s vaccines are losing effectiveness have boosters and a high-cost therapeutic currently in development.
