In today’s information war no one is further out on the front lines, in the trenches, battling the enemy (tyranny) hand to hand, than Jim Hoft and his The Gateway Pundit.
If you have not noticed by now, they are BY FAR our number once source for news and have been that way since 2016 or so.
The fact that they are the only ones getting so close to the truth makes them a target for the authoritarians. Luckily for you, me and the 1st Amendment, they won’t go down without a fight.
Luckily for all of us, there is still some justice to be had in this country …
Jim Hoft, the founder of The Gateway Pundit reported:
HUGE LEGAL WIN FOR GATEWAY PUNDIT AND THE FIRST AMENDMENT: 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Grants Emergency Injunction and Forces Maricopa County, Arizona to Issue Press Pass to Jordan Conradson … Battle Still Continues…
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Maricopa County, Arizona (the County) violated Gateway Pundit (TGP) and TGP reporter Jordan Conradson’s First Amendment rights by arbitrarily denying them a press pass to participate in press conferences and other press events hosted by the County.
As a result, we reported that TGP and Conradson sued Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors, Recorder Stephen Richer, Maricopa County Elections Directors Rey Valenzuela and Scott Jarrett, and County Communications Officers Megan Gilbertson and Marcus Milam in Federal Court in Arizona on November 14, 2022.
As part of the suit, TGP/Conradson made a special request for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), pending the outcome of the lawsuit. This would have immediately forced the County to grant TGP and Conradson a press pass.
On November 30, 2022, TGP and Conradson filed an Emergency Request for an Injunction, asking the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to force Maricopa County to grant TGP and Conradson a press pass pending the full outcome of TGP’s Appeal. A full hearing on the Appeal will be held in January, 2023.
We are EXTREMELY excited to report that today, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an Order GRANTING TGP’s Emergency Motion for Injunction!
This Order forces Maricopa County to issue Jordan Conradson a press pass so that he can participate in Maricopa County press conferences like every other journalist.
