Trump: "Fake News Media Has Never Been So Wrong Or So Dirty", Slams 9th Circuit

Trump wasted little time before launching his opening salvos on Twitter on Tuesday morning, when the President first went after the "Fake News Media" just after 6:30am, accusing the press of publishing false stories.

"The Fake News Media has never been so wrong or so dirty. Purposely incorrect stories and phony sources to meet their agenda of hate. Sad!" Trump lashed out in his first tweet on Tuesday.

It was not immediately clear which particular story (or stories) prompted Trump's ire this morning. The president's latest tweet came hours before Attorney General Jeff Sessions is set to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee, and shortly after Christopher Ruddy, chief executive of the conservative news site and TV network Newsmax, said during an interview on "PBS NewsHour" that Trump is thinking about firing special counsel Robert Mueller.

As NBC noted last night, it is open to question how reliable Ruddy's comments are. "He is often described as a close friend of Trump's, and reporters spotted him leaving the White House on Monday. But a source familiar with the visit told NBC News that any meeting Ruddy was to have had with the president was postponed. Still, his remarks prompted this reply on Twitter from Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, who said the committee would simply reappoint Mueller and then advised the president: "Don't waste our time."

"I can't manage that they're going to be crazy enough to go through with this threat," Schiff said later in an interview on MSNBC's "Hardball," adding: "I think it's just a way of raising doubts about this very good man who's respected by people on both sides of the aisle."

Ruddy himself told PBS: "I personally think it would be a very significant mistake, even though I don't think there's a justification for a special counsel in this case."

In a follow up tweet, the president again went after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals early Tuesday after it ruled against the president's so-called travel ban.

"Well, as predicted, the 9th Circuit did it again - Ruled against the TRAVEL BAN at such a dangerous time in the history of our country. S.C."  Trump tweeted, referring to the Supreme Court.

As reported on Monday, the San Francisco-based court affirmed in large part the Hawaii District Court ruling blocking parts of the order, which temporarily banned nationals from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S., suspended the entry of all refugees and reduced the cap on the admission of refugees from 110,000 to 50,000 for the 2017 fiscal year. In a unanimous ruling Monday, a three-judge panel on the court said Trump's revised order does not offer a sufficient justification to suspend the entry of more than 180 million people on the basis of nationality.

Trump earlier this month renewed the debate over his order in the wake of the attack in London. In a series of tweets following the London attack, the president referred to his order as a "travel ban" and insisted it was necessary to keep the U.S. safe.

Separately, a group of 17 Attorneys General filed a motion before the Supreme Court, seeking to prevent a hearing on Trump's appeal, effectively ending the debate before it has even started.

Obviously FrozenGoodz has never read the Constitution.As for the drama being played it is so obvious that the Deep State is in full "Psy-Op Warfare" mode.  Just look at the how the Special Prosecutor is stacking the deck.  These actions are what the US Intel Agencies and Spooks use to over throw duly elected governments of other nations if they do not like the outcome of those elections.  Pay attention people.

To everyone here: it's a couple pages.  You've accidently read things much much longer, probably this week.  Maybe you did read it in middle school, and it's been a few years.  But whatever:Everyone should take a moment to read the US Constitution, and if they have the time the constitution for the state in which they reside.  Every year or two, at the least.Knowing the laws, especially the highest laws governing how everything else functions, is one of the most basic civic duties every literate citizen has.  It prevents fucking stupid conversations like this from ever entering the national conversation, if nothing else...

The Executive Branch can stop or allow any foreign national from entering, it's WHY there is such a thing as visas & passports. The better question is will Ruth Bader Ginsberg recuse herself from from offering her opinion after her public statements of bias against Trump?

Foreigners do not have any rights as far as the Constitution is concerned.  Claiming that the Constitution conveys rights to every human being on the face of the earth is asinine.  It deals only with the territory of the United States, its citizens, the States and the federal government.  Foreigners have no rights or privileges under the letter of the Constitution because they may be the enemy.  Very simple.

Wrong.  Try again.  Trump has 100% legal authority to ban travel.  Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.https://www.uscis.gov/ilink/docView/SLB/HTML/SLB/0-0-0-1/0-0-0-29/0-0-0…

Whether it is the MSM or the SCOTUS, all of our institutions trash citizens and the ground-level, economic and security issues that citizens face in favor of endless handwringing over the rights of people in other countries.

Never have individual U.S. citizens lived in a more oppressive survelliance state, with their constitutional rights thrown to the wind, and for what? We have never seen more mass murders, including the terrorist acts, never before in U.S. history. We have never had more people in prison despite all of the welfare/taxfare handed out to bolster single mothers erhood, working moms and mass immigration.

Never before has Uncle Sam and the U.S. Treasury Department handed out more monthly bill-pay and tax-time Child Tax Credit cash up to $6,269 to reward citizen single moms and noncitizens who have sexual intercourse and reproduce in this country, whether they are here legally or illegally, undercutting citizen workers in the labor market because of free rent, free food and tax-time cash rewards for copulation/reproduction.

Citizens who have to finance food, shelter and other major bills on the low wages alone are absolutely screwed by this rigged system, and the instituons of elected government are worried about every obscure extension of rights to people abroad.

Protecting citizens against terrorist and other mass murders in an era when citizens and immigrants are raising more mass murderers than ever before in American history despite all of the layers of welfare, taxfare and workplace privileges awarded to working parents, is always the last priority of Elites.

A good example of how Elites put Americans last is the recent SCOTUS ruling, extending birthright citizenship to people born to both single mommas or single dads abroad. In one respect, this is one of the many publicity stunts, where womb-based feminists prove they also favor the working dads, not just the working moms who are showered with mandated absenteeism privileges in workplaces, per-birth cash handouts in the tax code and the welfare system, rendering childless citizens as second class unless they are wealthy. In another way, it is just another attempt to put American workers last.

This applies to people who were raised entirely in another country, who may not even have seen or had much contact with the parent who spent his formative years in the USA. Anyone can understand why they protect people born to married parents, with one being a U.S. citizen, born and living overseas, making sure they do not have to jump through any hoops to become citizens.

But this takes it to extremes and likely is just another example of both Womb-Based Fake Feminism, which puts birthing and the start of life ahead of everything, and the way Elites put the rights of those in foreign countries ahead of citizens.

All we need are more people with U.S. citizenship, competing for jobs with citizens whose major bills are not paid by unearned income from government for reproduction. We already have too many people in the workforce, willing to work for low pay due to their womb-based, unearned income from welfare/taxfare, spouses and ex spouses.

This has driven down wages for decades, helping to destroy the middle class, along with welfare-fueled, mass immigration and now bot competition. The SCOTUS is helping to destroy the U.S. middle class, just like the elected branches of government, mostly just to prop up their Fake Feminist and multiculturalist cult.

This is really just a way of telling us that they are going to protect birthright citizenship to the max for all illegal border crossers, ensuring that their monthly bills continue to be paid by taxpayers for sexual intercourse and reproduction, in addition to the $6,269 Child Tax Credit checks. Illegal immigrant parents got $4.2 billion of those in one year, while Americans who did not copulate/reproduce struggled to pay all of their bills, including unaffordable rent, on earned-only income, cashing tax returns of $300 or less that would not cover a car repair, when not swallowed by the Obamacare penalty.

Our branches of government HATE individual citizens whose wombs or sperm are unproductive unless they are affluent. It is reflected in every decision they make, whether in designing the welfare system, the taxfare system or multiple workplace privileges for working parents that rig workplaces against those who lack unearned income streams related to womb productivity to cover major bills.

He should read the US Constitution and ignore their ruling and then follow it up with arrests for sedition.

US Constitution. Article 3. Section 2. Paragraph 2

"In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction."

We all kniw the deckining quality of Universities now, even sniwflakers like Yale and Harvard.  Now consider the dumb of the dumbest,  Journalism Degrees.  Besides being mantra chanting leftist,  journalist are dumb, low I.Q., stupid.  That can't be fixed. For example, what journalist book would you buy?  None.  They are boring, xan not write and haven't anything to say.  TV "journalism" is half buffed up chicken head biting clown show.  Do you ever record any TV "news"?  No, of course not, plus its a waste of electrons.

Sessions needs to tell congress that the special counsel investigation is no longer needed, that there has not been sufficient evidence found to rationalize one and that he is recommending that either the Congress or the President end it. Also, that given the testimony by Comey, the special counsel was the result of illegal and retaliatory actions by Comey. These actions preclude an independent investigation from going forward in "good faith".

Plus,  Comey and Mueller are best buddies so there is a conflict of interest.  If I was Sessions, I'd announce? a Special Prosecutor for every Obama and Clinton illegal/corrupt dealings.  The Dems want to play politics, I'd up the ante and go after real criminal activity.  By the time I was done, I'd have Hillary singing like a bird about Obama and his Administration.  Dems would be shaking in their boots.  They want Special Counsels, I'd give them more? than they could handle and make them wish they'd never gone on this witch hunt.

I don't know: it's kind of fun to listen to the Democrats scream about Russia constantly.  Almost as good as Trump tweets--but not quite.  Also, they're too distracted with that to notice their party is dissolving in front of their eyes, so there may even be a good argument to let them continue...I am of the belief that there really is no there there, and that's part of the problem the Deep State has: Trump is just too damn clean.  The worst things they have on him are poorly worded statements...  And yeah; that's part of his charm and not a crime.  So investigate away, motherfuckers! And then, in 2018, there won't even be enough Democrats to continue whatever relics of the investigation are still going--which they will be no matter what Trump does, btw, and you should know that about them by now.  (The relatively short investigations into Obama that ended with many ignored recommendations to prosecute were wastes of time and money according to the Democrats; that means, by the operational rules of the DNC, that they were about to waste a bunch of time and money investigating truly stupid issues.)In the meantime: I would like to hear more noises from the DOJ about the recommendations from former Congressional Committees investigating things like the IRS and Fast and Furious.  Let the Democrats do their thing: they're going to anyways.  But it may get harder when half of them are up on criminal conspiracy charges...

You know they are all running scared (for a variety of reasons....mostly criminal). The constant attacks against a sitting President is unparalleled in history.
