Acosta steps down

July 13, 2019

Proving that these days, if you just yell loudly enough, you’ll get what you want, President Trump’s Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta resigned Friday.  He said Democrats’ demands for his head over his role as a US Attorney in brokering the lenient Jeffrey Epstein plea deal in 2008 had become a “distraction,” and were causing the media to ignore the incredible successes of the Trump economy.

Of course, the media hardly needed an 11-year-old accusation to ignore the incredible success of Trump’s economy, since they can always find a distraction to keep from reporting on that.  But if they’d like to stop being distracted, here are a few questions they could ask that are far more germane to the real scandal about how the Epstein case was handled.  Try asking these questions of the Democrats who were baying for Acosta to resign:

Why are you focusing all your righteous indignation on the only person who actually got an admission of guilt from Epstein, got him branded as a convicted sexual predator, and made the case that’s allowing his victims to come forward now?  Is it because a decade later, he took an appointment from Trump, and this is your way of trying to connect Trump to this scandal?

Do you realize that Trump had Epstein thrown out of Mar-A-Lago and banned after he allegedly made unwelcome advances to a young girl, and that Trump was the only member of high social circles in Manhattan who talked to the attorney for one of Epstein’s victims to help him nail Epstein?

Why are you attacking Acosta, who claims he got the toughest plea deal possible, given the thinness of the evidence, instead of all the local and federal officials who failed to build a stronger case, like the Miami prosecutor or then-FBI head Robert Mueller? 

Why are you making such strenuous efforts to attack the guy who actually prosecuted Epstein, and Trump, who refused even to speak to him for 15 years, while studiously ignoring all the famous Democrats in New York, Hollywood and Washington who continued to do business with Epstein, socialize with him (like Bill Clinton, who seems awfully confused about how many rides he took on Epstein’s private jet, the “Lolita Express,”) and help him (like New York DA Cyrus Vance Jr. who tried to lower the severity of Epstein’s sex offender ranking and make it easier for him to…ahem…”mingle.”)

In short, why is your outrage so remarkably selective? 

Some of the answers may be found in this piece by Kim Hirsch at Victory Girls.

She points out that the billionaire Epstein, with his Hollywood and political connections, was one of the “elite,” and elitism protected him, just it protected Harvey Weinstein for so long.  And now that the crimes of the elites are finally coming to light, the elites are miraculously finding ways to blame them on the biggest enemy of the elites, the person the elites hate the most and refuse to associate with: Donald Trump.

    I have been pointing this out to people around me but they sometimes say that I must be making it up. Such disgusting people and such disgusting behaviors are so like the Dem party I supported years ago. Clinton's trips to the island of 12 year old girls are so widely known about that I and many of my friends heard about them two years ago, and we are not even part of that "Elite" Crowd of Scum Bags. I continue to appreciate your efforts Mr. Huckabee. God Bless You. Sincerely and in Christ, Dorien de Lusignan

    the whole thing was childish. Acosta should NOT have resigned , but he is weak and won't stand up for what happened. Up the libs nose with an icepick. They do't get to say who stays and who goes.! DT didn't stand up for him either which is tragic. Facts be known... but the left doesn't deal in facts.

    Sir, I don't know who these people are (Epstein). I don't know of this situation. I do know that Jesus is on his throne---AND one day He is coming back and I intend to welcome him and he will welcome me. I want all my children to meet this wonderful Savior in the air.
    With love for America, I am---Bonnie R. Parvino

    The elitists have called us the deplorables. From my point of view, it seems to me that elitists are being added everyday to a basket of real deplorables. Thank you very much, but I am beginning to think I had rather be a deplorable than elitist any day!!

    I was sorry to hear Acosta had resigned.

    Funny how Chuck Schumer was the first to condemn the Acosta's actions. After all, Chuck Schumer accepted $4,000 in campaign donations from Epstein. Lots of Democrats and a few Republicans accepted Epstein's money.

    Sad and disappointed Mr. Acosta, an intelligent, dignified man, stepped down. I watched his press conference. I was impressed with him, his dignity and his transparency explaining his position regarding Epstein. He got Epstein labelled a level 4 sex offender and some jail time back when witnesses were reluctant to come forward. So glad President Trump walked out with Mr. Acosta Friday (?) morning and praised him and his work. The democrats and the liberal media are evil to have forced Mr. Acosta to resign. Let the voters know and remember the evil democrats and hold them accountable at the polls on election day.

    Acosta is gone because he is a member of Trumps cabinet, anyone associated with Trump, considered by the Dems as enemies and therefore must be eliminated. A very sad situation.

    I watched Mr. Acosta's press conference the other day and found him to be very credible. I am so upset that he succumbed to the vicious Liberals attacking him for what seemed to be a correct, cogent action on his part so many years ago. This is simply wrong what the DEMS do! So sorry he chose to leave...and this article is so right - the real bad side of Epstein politically is the DEMOCRATS who were his pals and that needs to be investigated but also, especially, CYRUS VANCE JR who tried to diminished Epstein's predator level.......OMG. There are real opportunities for finding bad people but the Left just wanted to hurt Pres Trump and try to link him to Epstein. Again, so sorry for Secretary Acosta - I really was rooting for him. I understand his position completely! (and his doing the best he could at that time)..............and what about Mr. Kischner - how about him getting investigated for his initial prosecutorial work which would have let Epstein go completely free????

    I see little in todays newsletter. Of more concern is this same culture pervades the church in America. I see many " beautiful and wealthy" on religious programming presenting a gospel of " grace" that omits the cross We must also tend to out own house, then the world will take what we say more seriously. I appreciate that you have honest believers on your show. Don't see that often. BTW- I have been a believer since 1973 whe I believed on Jesus.

    We wish President Trump would have kept Acosta. Dems are getting away with murder maligning this administration. What Dems do to people brought before their committees is reply of Kavanaugh hearings. Former ICE director is our hero. He put Dems in their place.

    Desperation is the sole policy of the left. The democrats have NOTHING going for them and their only focus is hatred toward President Trump.

    With all the crap that is coming out about the elites Donald Trump is starting to look more like a Guardian Angel than A Racist or what ever the word of the week the Liberals slam him with.
