Joe Biden doesn’t need a spokesman with one NBC reporter making ridiculous arguments for him

Published

Joe Biden is one of the most unpopular American Presidents ever.

That’s quite a feat considering that most corporate-controlled media is practically working for him.

In fact, he doesn’t even need a spokesman with one NBC reporter on the job for him.

NBC’s Chief White House reporter Peter Alexander seems to struggle with remembering he’s not on Biden’s payroll.

That was abundantly clear recently when he asked Marc Short if the United States should put an embargo on Russian oil.

Short said an embargo should be in place – and then jumped into explaining how Joe Biden managed to tie his own hands in this situation.

“It’s an untenable position to say that in essence, America has doubled its importation of Russian oil. You now have 100 plus dollars per barrel, and you have hundreds of 1000s of barrels imported per day. In some cases, you’re actually funding the war against Ukraine,” Short said. “The United States should have no business importing oil from Russia. What the Biden Administration should do is allow America to become energy independent like it was during the Trump/Pence administration. But, instead, they canceled the keystone pipeline, and they stopped renewing new permits, what that does is it makes us more dependent upon foreign oil and labor markets.”

Alexander then jumped in the middle of Short’s explanation to make excuses for Biden.

“We know about the Keystone pipeline; it was only 8% completed when Joe Biden canceled it,” Alexander said. “So, it’s not like that would have changed anything now they’re taking years to do it.”

The problem with that argument is that the Keystone XL was slated for opening in 2023.

If Donald Trump were still in power, chances are his smart move to fill the strategic reserve when oil prices dropped to record lows – along with other domestic oil production efforts – would have allowed the U.S. to tell Vladimir Putin exactly where to go an how to get there without making major sacrifices.

As it stands, the price of oil has already skyrocketed to more than $130 a barrel before Biden announced his intentions for an embargo on Russian oil, gas, and coal imports.

Short pointed out that Biden’s decision to cancel the Keystone XL was only one of his many shortsighted choices.

“It goes beyond the Keystone pipeline. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has not approved other pipelines in the system. The Biden administration canceled oil production in ANWR, it canceled new oil leases in other parts of nationally owned property. They have had an agenda that has done everything it could to raise the price of oil, additionally putting new fines and new regulations from EPA on methane,” Short said. “So, they’ve done everything they can to raise the price of gasoline that Americans are paying at the pump. So yes, there are plenty of things that the Biden Administration can do to return America to energy independence that it had under the Trump/Pence Administration.”

Ironically, ANWR, which is short for Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, is in Alaska and not all that far from the Russian oil fields the United States is currently dependent on for oil.

There’s an estimated 10 billion barrels of oil in ANWR – and it seems likely polar bears and caribou don’t have any particular use in mind for it.

The future of NBC News could be in jeopardy after it released this ridiculously woke statement

Published

on

The mad dash to be ‘woke’ has caused everyone from Disney to Netflix to go broke.

But that’s not stopping the major news networks from diving headfirst into the shallow end of the woke pool.

Now the future of NBC News could be in jeopardy after it released this ridiculously woke statement.

Watching the ‘woke’ corporations like Disney, Netflix, and Meta (Facebook) go broke is becoming an American pastime like baseball and football.

Every new dawn breaks with the promise of another leftist ‘woke’ corporation forced to watch its stock crash as their customers decide they’ve had enough of the radical, socialist, transgender, kiddie porn LGBTQIAA+ crusading.

We’ve already seen what happens to news networks like CNN and MSNBC who have long been nothing but cheerleaders for the radical leftwing socialist agenda.

They wouldn’t even still be on the air if it weren’t for the funding they receive from socialist billionaires like George Soros.

Now NBC has decided to go for ‘woke’ as well.

NBC News was completely destroyed by critics recently after it posted a tweet describing one of the winners of the popular game show Jeopardy! only by her sexual orientation, without even mentioning her name.

“The 23-year-old lesbian tutor from Toronto has amassed a total of $320,081, the most by a Canadian contestant in Jeopardy! history,” the news network tweeted.

They then included a link to a full report detailing the impressive 14 consecutive wins by Jeopardy! contestant Mattea Roach.

Someone at NBC News probably wishes they had edited their Tweet.

Because critics of every stripe took to Twitter immediately to ridicule and heap scorn on NBC News.

Most of them rightfully questioning the need to even include Roach’s sexual orientation at all when celebrating her accomplishments.

Others mocked the peacock network for making the tweet confusing by including the sexual preference descriptor.

Fox News contributor Joe Concha wrote, “Not sure why sexuality is included here or how it pertains to an individual’s intelligence, but OK. Contestants of all stripes have been appearing on the show for decades.” 

And the legislative reporter for CityNews Vancouver Liza Yuzda described NBC News’ decision to describe Roach as a lesbian as “a bizarre choice.”

Reuters senior correspondent Chris Taylor asked, “Is her sexual orientation really relevant here?”

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean had another simple question for NBC, “How about just reporting her name and where she’s from?” 

Other critics focused their attention on just how poorly written the Tweet was. A lesbian tutor? Where do you find lesbian tutors?

Former CBS San Diego anchor Barbara-Lee Edwards asked, “What is poorly written, insensitive and just plain insulting?” 

And Townhall columnist Derek Hunter wanted to know, “She tutors lesbians? In what?” 

University of Calgary researcher Paul Fairie tweeted out derisively, “You can get a tutor for anything.”

Clearly, NBC News should be spending more time on teaching their “journalists” how to write, and less time on ‘woke’ LGBTQIAA+ marketing.

Chuck Todd just gave Democrats a grim warning about Biden’s approval ratings

Published

The Democrats have their heads in the sand.

They exist in a Democrat Media Complex echo chamber.

But Chuck Todd just gave Democrats a grim warning about Biden’s approval ratings.

Joe Biden’s approval numbers are dropping like a rock.

His first 15 months in office have been historically bad, and he’s struggling to crack 40% in approval ratings amongst Americans.

And Chuck Todd from NBC’s Meet the Press is attempting to warn Democrats that Biden’s unpopularity spells doom for the party in the midterm elections.

Todd began by showing his audience a poll that said 71% of respondents believe the United States is on the wrong track under Biden’s leadership.

Todd explained, “Sixty-five percent wrong track is a bad number. Seventy-one percent? That’s why it is in the shellacking category.”

He went on to illustrate that Biden’s low approval ratings are another indicator that Democrats are in trouble for the midterms.

Todd said, “When you start dipping below 45%, you’ve got a problem, and you’re gonna have midterms that are in the bad-to-shellacking ratio…President Biden is at 40. George W. Bush was at 39% in 2006. We know how that turned out. So, you see, that’s also in shellacking territory.”

Todd also discussed the generic Congressional ballot that currently has Republicans up 46-44, although some polls have the spread as large as 11 points in the GOP’s favor; the poll average is 3.4 points.

But even using the 2-point margin, Todd elaborated on why that is bad news for the Democrats.

Todd continued, “What you’re gonna see here is a narrow lead for the Republicans—[46] to 44—and you’re gonna say, ‘Oh, that’s competitive.’ No, no, no, no. In national polling, it’s extremely rare because of the way gerrymandering has worked, the way Democrats are packed into districts…they have more 85-percent districts than Republicans do. The bottom line is, generic ballot, if the Democrats are losing, it means they’re gonna get walloped. Last time in 2010, Republicans had a two-point advantage. That translated to 63 seats.”

In other words, sensible Democrats are concerned about the direction of the party.

On the other hand, the insane Democrats like Keith Olbermann are furious at Todd for telling the truth.

Olbermann even compared Todd to a Nazi collaborator for criticizing Biden’s agenda and explaining how his poll numbers were down.

The Olbermann-wingnut contingent of the party would rather bury their heads in the sand and name-call Republicans.

That strategy is not working, and the Democrats could be in for a rude awakening in November.

NBC just made an offensive comparison of Jackie Robinson to this emasculated male in one woke report

Published

The Left have gone off the deep in with their transgender push.

Activists have shockingly argued that there are no biological differences between males and females.

Now NBC just made an offensive comparison of Jackie Robinson to this emasculated male in one woke report.

The fringe elements of the Left are attempting to take over the culture completely.

Less than a decade ago, everyone outside of a small handful of far-left radicals would’ve scoffed at the idea of a man getting pregnant.

Now if someone doesn’t accept that belief, he or she could get banned from social media or worse.

From there, people are now being forced to accept biological males in girls’ and women’s sports.

The most stark example is University of Pennsylvania swimmer “Lia” Thomas who has been smashing records as a member of the women’s swim team.

Last year, “Lia” Thomas (born William) competed on the men’s team, and was ranked 462nd in the NCAA.

But in the women’s division, Thomas immediately catapulted to number one.

And NBC News had the audacity to compare Thomas to baseball legend Jackie Robinson breaking Major League Baseball’s color barrier 75 years ago in 1947.

NBC wrote that “athletes like Jackie Robinson are celebrated as ‘breaking the color barrier’ in sports, although that narrative often requires sanitizing, simplifying or rewriting a more complex, nuanced and contradictory history . . . Thomas, as the first transgender athlete to win a Division I NCAA championship, deserves to be placed among the other firsts. She should be embraced in the history of progress that sports represent and recognized as the trailblazer that she is.”

This is illustrative of how unhinged American society has become.

The Left constantly looks for any “rights” crusade to compare to the plight of people who were actually oppressed and discriminated against.

Men’s and women’s divisions are bifurcated for a reason – there are biological differences between the sexes.

But trans activists and fellow travelers on the Left are being willfully ignorant of basic biology and general common sense.

NBC added:

“There is a lack of scientific evidence that conclusively demonstrates a direct link between testosterone and athletic performance. Athletic performance is influenced by a number of factors, including hormones, but also other things like coaching and training, psychological makeup of an athlete, access to resources and equipment, among others. Attempts to ban or limit the participation of trans athletes are not based on science. Instead, they are rooted in societal and cultural definitions of what constitutes gender or what defines a woman. Such questions matter because sports are organized based on the belief of natural differences between men and women, and they are sex-segregated as a result. Yet, this ultimately leads to the discrimination of athletes like Thomas.”

To take that argument to its logical conclusion, NBC should surely favor the integration of the men’s and women’s league into one.

Since there are no biological differences and such notions are rooted in “bigotry,” then there should only be one swim team, basketball team, soccer team, etc.

Some trans activists have pushed for exactly that for acting awards in Hollywood.

However, it seems unlikely that trans activists favor the full integration of men’s and women’s sports.
