Biden’s new press secretary continues to stumble over reporters’ questions

Published

on

When former White House press secretary Jen Psaki stepped down, it was hard to imagine the next press secretary doing an even worse job.

Her replacement, Karine Jean-Pierre, is already shaping up to be a disaster. 

And it doesn’t look like Jean-Pierre will get any better any time soon.

White House press secretary Jean-Pierre was pressed on the reason for the Biden administration invoking the Defense Production Act to expand the manufacture of solar panel components, building insulation, heat pumps, and equipment for making and using clean electricity-generated fuels.

The Defense Production Act allows the president to direct companies to produce certain items. 

Because it is a major interference in the free market, it was intended as a wartime emergency power. 

But the Biden administration is abusing it for his own agenda. 

Fox Business reporter Edward Lawrence asked press secretary Jean-Pierre exactly what the emergency justification was for invoking the DPA. 

Her response was “Let me — I was going to say, first, the president — you know, when he takes the Defense Production Act, it’s to make sure that he’s delivering for the American people. It is an important tool that he has used a couple of times, and it has been incredibly effective.”

When Lawrence again pressed “what is the emergency?”, she said “Well, this is just a step to get to a place where we do have a clean energy arsenal. And so, this is a very important part of the president’s agenda in getting to that clean energy system that he’s been talking about since he walked into the administration.”

So not only did Secretary Jean-Pierre fail to answer the question, but she also practically outright admitted that Biden was abusing the Defense Production Act to push his Green agenda. 

Not having enough so called “Green Energy” hardly constitutes a national emergency.

For someone who’s entire job is to articulate and defend the president’s agenda, Secretary Jean-Pierre isn’t really that good at it. 

Perhaps the only person that could do an even worse job is Joe Biden himself, which explains why his handlers try to shield him from interviews as much as they do.

Democrats’ latest Donald Trump witch hunt is not going as they expected

Published

Democrats have gone all in on their “Orange Man Bad” strategy.

Donald Trump remains the center of their universe because he’s a big target with plenty of name recognition.

But Democrats’ latest Trump witch hunt is not going as they expected.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) January 6 Commission hearings are not playing out how the Democrats were hoping.

Democrats previously hired former ABC News president James Goldston to present a television extravaganza to the American people in primetime.

But in reality, their initial primetime hearing did not bring in the massive ratings Democrats wanted, and another hearing was even preempted by the U.S. Open.

And a recent ABC News/Ipsos poll has confirmed what Democrats dreaded – most Americans simply do not care about the January 6 hearings.

“Democrats are more likely to be following the hearings,” ABC News buried deep in their report. “Overall, 34% of Americans are following the hearings very or somewhat closely, with 43% of Democrats and 22% of Republicans saying so. In a reminder of where political attention is, just under one in 10 (9%) Americans say they are following the hearings very closely.”

Despite all of the fear-mongering, only 9% of Americans are following this witch hunt “very closely.”

Even left-wing CNN host Brian Stelter highlighted that fact, tweeting, “Only 9% of Americans say they are following the Jan. 6 hearings ‘very closely,’ per this new ABC/Ipsos poll.”

And the news gets worse for Democrats.

In their report, ABC News added that “on whether the investigation will have an impact at the polls, just over half (51%) of Americans say that what they’ve read, seen or heard about the hearings has made no difference in who they plan to support in this November’s election. Meanwhile, 29% say they are more likely to support Democratic candidates and 19% say they are more likely to support Republican candidates.”

So over half of respondents have already made up their minds, and 19% said they were more likely to vote Republican.

The hearings are largely much ado about nothing, as the bulk of the January 6 “revelations” have either been known for 15 months or lack any evidence.

Democrats believe that it’s some sort of revelation that President Trump told people he believed he won the 2020 election – he still says that today.

The Democrats have already impeached him for it, and even the Biden Department of Justice is not pursuing any criminal investigations.

The January 6 hearings are purely political theater, and millions of Americans left before intermission.

McCarthyite Congressman went on television and said something about Trump that will infuriate you

Published

on

The Democrats have destroyed their credibility in pursuit of taking out Donald Trump.

They have repeatedly overpromised and under-delivered.

Now one McCarthyite Congressman went on television and said something about Trump that will infuriate you.

Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is up to his old tricks again.

Rep. Schiff continues to claim that he has damning evidence against former President Donald Trump – evidence he can never show or talk about at the time, and never seems to actually materialize.

Schiff claimed he had evidence of so-called “Russian collusion” that never materialized.

He even ad-libbed a fake call between President Trump and Ukrainian leaders in order to spice up the Democrats’ first impeachment attempt.

Now, Rep. Schiff is claiming that he has evidence that Trump conspired in some harebrained scheme to present fake Presidential electorates.

The Congressman made the claims during a recent appearance on CNN, as a skeptical host, Dana Bash, tried to pin him down and get him to definitely claim he had the proof.

Schiff’s credibility is so low at this point it’s downright embarrassing to see him still be allowed to go on cable news shows and spew his nonsense.

Bash also asked Rep. Schiff if the Biden Department of Justice has opened any criminal investigations into the claims made by the January 6 Commission.

“Have you seen evidence that the Justice Department has already opened an investigation into the former president?” Bash asked. 

“I have not seen, for example, grand juries convene in places where I would think they would be convened if they were looking at some of the conduct, for example, that Judge Carter in California wrote he believed that Donald Trump was engaged in multiple acts that violate the criminal laws,” Schiff responded.

In other words, no – Adam Schiff does not have any proof for his claims.

Bash then tripped Schiff up with a rather simple question many have raised since the Commission’s hearings began. 

“Why aren’t you calling witnesses in a public way who might challenge the committee?” the CNN host asked Schiff. “Is that intentional because you don’t want to deviate from the storyline that you’re trying to present to the public and, of course, potentially to the Justice Department?”

It’s an excellent question that Democrats, like Rep. Schiff, have no good answer for.

There is no “defense” narrative being presented – it’s akin to a criminal trial where the jury only gets to see the prosecution’s case.

And that’s precisely how Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the radical Left want it.

That’s why she broke with Congressional norms by refusing to allow Republican leadership to choose its own members of the January 6 Commission.

Now, even members of the Fake News Media are calling out the one-way traffic in these sham hearings.

Joe Biden

Joe Biden fell on his face while the “business” press has Hillary Clinton’s back

Published

Hillary Clinton doesn’t lose gracefully. 

And she’s definitely not willing to end her career with back-to-back losses to Donald Trump and Joe Biden. 

Now she’s gleefully taking advantage of Joe Biden falling flat on his face, and the so-called “business” press has her back all the way.

By all rights, Hillary Clinton should be hiding away from the public in shame. 

Recent court filings have revealed just how far the former First Lady turned crooked Presidential candidate was willing to go to fabricate elaborate lies about then-candidate Donald Trump. 

Her campaign’s “Russian collusion” hoax was an elaborate scheme that required white collar thugs to hack servers inside Trump Tower, and then the White House, in an attempt to establish “proof” Russia was interested in giving Trump an edge in his Presidential campaigns. 

Of course, when she couldn’t find any real proof, a purely fictional narrative also got the job done. 

You’d think by now – with the hoax and her role in it fully exposed – she’d have the good sense to let go of this ludicrous and losing angle. 

Instead, she’s breathing new life into it with the help of so-called “business media” outlets. 

You seriously have to wonder what kind of dirt the Clintons have on The Financial Times and Business Insider that would somehow convince editors to run with outrageously lame hit pieces on Vladimir Putin that seem to be calculated to dredge up the ghost of political campaigns past. 

The recent piece in The Financial Times was melodramatically entitled: “Hillary Clinton: ‘We are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy.’”

She started out by sharing a little dirt about one of the most hated men on the planet at this point. 

Referring to her time as Secretary of State, Clinton complained that Vladimir Putin was, “very sexist toward me.”

We had some interesting, even helpful, interactions in private and then the press would be invited in and he would say something insulting about America,” she claimed. “He would then manspread for effect.”

She then quickly transitioned to claiming Putin has a vested interest in Donald Trump winning, claiming the only way the Russian president can win in Ukraine is if Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). 

“If Trump had won in 2020 he would have pulled out of NATO—I have no doubt about that,” she continued claiming. 

She might as well have yelled, “Look, a squirrel!”

Chances are, with Donald Trump staring him down, Putin wouldn’t have had the gall to start anything in the first place. 

After all, Trump was the only President since George W. Bush to not allow Russia to invade another sovereign nation on their watch.

But all Hillary has left in her arsenal is a smart mouth, and the ability to toss around a bunch of predictions like the words coming out of her mouth actually mean something. 

Business Insider was certainly doing its part in imitating the former Secretary of State throwing out all kinds of random facts, noting Putin’s utter failure at virtue signaling to an American feminist audience.

Following a series of bullet points basically laying out Hillary Clinton’s case, the publication included a series of pictures and bullet points listing random sordid details about Putin’s personal life. 

It included bombshells that revealed incredible tidbits like that Putin has “2, maybe 3, daughters he barely ever talks about,” and that he even has an ex-wife. 

Simply shocking. 

Of course, appealing to busybodies like Hillary Clinton is probably the last thing the former KGB Officer has any interest in attempting. 

Then again, Hillary couldn’t care less about Putin beyond making him a handy scapegoat so she’s more palatable to a public she hopes has developed Joe Biden’s memory issues.
