(RepublicanWire.org) – An audio recording recently leaked of White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki shamefully saying White House correspondent Peter Doocy of Fox News “sounds like a stupid son of a b****.” Psaki’s comment came in response to a question from a left-wing podcast host. She went on to explain that this isn’t Doocy’s fault, but rather that Fox News as a network makes anyone sound like a “stupid son of a b****.”

Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly blasted Psaki for the remark. Kelly says Psaki took “a shot at him” because he “asks her tough questions.” Most of the liberal mainstream media hand Psaki softball questions that aim to make the Biden administration look good.

Kelly explains, “She’s [Psaki] making the rounds, she’s going on Pod [Save] America, the far-left Obama guys have their podcast which is popular with liberals. And while on there she gets asked about Peter Doocy and whether basically he’s a jerk… they ask her basically if he’s some sort of an a**hole.”

“And she basically says oh ‘he works for a network that feeds its questions to people in a way that would make anybody sound like a jerk,’” Kelly added. “And I’m thinking to myself, ‘number one I’ve worked at Fox News and they actually, unlike NBC news, they don’t feed the anchor the questions. At Fox News nobody ever wrote a question for me ever. Not in a presidential debate, not on a big night, not on my nightly show, and I guarantee you nobody’s writing Peter Doocy’s questions for him,” Kelly continued. “And she [Psaki] decides to take a shot at him [Doocy]. Because he’s the only one willing to ask her tough questions.”

Political commentator Buck Sexton called Psaki’s response “pathetic” and said the only questions worth hearing to him are Doocy’s.

In response, Fox News released a statement that reads: “In his role as White House correspondent, Peter Doocy’s job is to elicit truth from power for the American public. His questions are his own, he is a terrific reporter and we are extremely proud of his work.”

“If we had a real press corps those press conferences would be testy, Megyn” Sexton said. “It should be interesting.” 

“Peter Doocy works for a network that provides people with questions that might make anyone sound like a stupid son of a b****,’” the podcast host shared. “Because the question was ‘is he really as much of a stupid son of a b as we think?”

“I know it’s annoying to be asked tough questions but it’s literally your job to answer them in that role,” she added. “And you’d do better to be honest. I mean even the president came out and tried to say that Doocy made up the basis for his questions about you know ‘you said you would respond in kind to Russia if it uses chemical weapons, was that smart?’”

For most Americans, the COVID pandemic has been a nightmare. It’s harmed the economy, kept us apart from loved ones and sucked much of the joy out of life. Many politicians seem to be enjoying it, though. As well as giving them an excuse to slash away at our freedoms, they can blame absolutely anything on the virus.

On December 2, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House mouthpiece Jen Psaki what President Joe Biden plans to do about the epidemic of violence that’s sweeping the US. The correspondent was specifically referring to the smash-and-grab robberies plaguing cities and the record number of police officers shot dead while on duty. Doocy probably expected one of the Biden administration’s usual waffling non-answers; what he got was stunning.

When Psaki was asked why gangs of criminals are looting stores and leaving them with empty shelves, she replied “I think a root cause in a lot of communities is the pandemic.” Even by Psaki’s standards, that’s a stretch.

Former President Donald Trump has a different opinion. He says the upsurge in smash-and-grab robberies – often targeting luxury stores, and carried out to order by organized crime gangs – is down to Democrat-run cities where the police aren’t allowed to do their jobs. Trump called out the media for ignoring the spike in looting, but perhaps they’ll pay attention now that Psaki has given us all her unique take on the situation.

It’s common knowledge that Americans are not just stranded in Afghanistan, but that the Taliban have been beating them in the streets. But according to Biden Administration Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki, that’s not a problem — because Psaki denies Americans are “stranded” in Afghanistan at all in some weird attempt to defy reality.

Asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy whether the White House’s official stance is that there are no Americans stranded in Kabul, a fiery Psaki answered:

“I’m just calling you out for saying that we are stranding Americans in Afghanistan, when I – when we have been very clear that we are not leaving Americans who want to return home,” Psaki said. “We are going to bring them home. And I think that’s important for the American public to hear and understand.”

The problem is that everyone, even the New York Times, has reported this. It’s not like we don’t know what’s going on over there. Rather than correct the record, a White House official emailed Fox News to back Psaki up: “As the president and his team have made clear, the circumstances in Afghanistan are heartbreaking and we are bringing the Americans who want to come home, home.”

Despite Biden and friends’ claims to the contrary, a mother and government worker told Fox that she and many others are indeed stranded. “We are stranded at home. We can’t get to the airport,” she said in a “Fox and Friends First” interview Tuesday. “When we try to get to the airport, we either get beaten up or we are afraid for our lives.”

After pressure mounted, Biden eventually began rescue operations to rescue this woman and others like her — but such missions are cherry-picked by four-star generals and above — likely to avoid a “Black Hawk Down” scenario Biden fears will damage his reputation.

If there’s one thing that can be said about the Biden administration, it’s that they are willing to condemn American conservatives at every turn. They call us terrorists. They call us monsters. They accuse us of everything under the sub. But Communists? That’s where they balk. On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to condemn Communism in Cuba.

Though Biden has been praised by the American media for taking a “tougher tone” toward Cuba, the truth is that he hasn’t mentioned Communism a single time in any statement released on the protests currently going on in the country.

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel says that the nationwide protests are a U.S. plot to “fracture” the Communist party. But the truth is that citizens are simply rejecting Communism. The Guardian reports:

In a televised address on Monday morning Díaz-Canel, who recently succeeded Raúl Castro as the Communist party’s top figure, painted the protests as part of a United States-backed, social media-driven plot to stir up public discontent and overthrow the Cuban regime.

“The approach wasn’t peaceful yesterday,” the 61-year-old politician claimed, criticising the “completely vulgar” behaviour of some demonstrators who he accused of throwing rocks at police and destroying cars. Díaz-Canel conceded other protesters had legitimate concerns over food shortages and blackouts, although he blamed those problems on US sanctions. “It’s legitimate to feel dissatisfaction,” the party’s powerful first secretary said in the broadcast.

Rogelio Polanco Fuentes, a top party official who runs its ideology department, denounced the protests as part of a well-funded US-sponsored effort to create “instability and chaos” in Cuba, which is currently experiencing its worst economic slump in decades as well as a worsening Covid crisis.

In a presser in which she defended Texas Democrats’ decision to flee the state to block a vote on an election integrity bill, Psaki roundly refused to reject or even criticize Communism, which has torn Cuba apart for decades and decades.

“Do you think the people are leaving Cuba because they don’t like communism?” she was asked.

 “We think people are leaving Cuba or protesting in the streets as well because they’re opposed to the oppression, to the mismanagement of the government in the country; and we certainly support their right to protest, we support their efforts to speak out against their treatment in Cuba,” she says. Watch it below:

According to White House Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki, Joe Biden isn’t happy with the level of censorship conservatives are facing and he thinks something needs to change. No, he doesn’t want to do anything to protect us or force social media giants to value free speech and thought. That’d make too much sense. In fact, he doesn’t think there’s enough censorship.

Following Facebook’s decision not to reinstate President Trump’s account, which was banned following the January 6 incident when the President tried to calm everyone down and was removed from almost all social media, Psaki stepped out in front of the American people and did what she does best.

Psaki says Biden thinks “major platforms have a responsibility related to the health and safety of all Americans to stop amplifying untrustworthy content, disinformation and misinformation, especially related to COVID-19, vaccinations and elections.” Calling conservative ideas “life threatening” speech, Psaki says Biden’s mission is to urge Big Tech to do more to silence it.

“I think we are, of course, a believer in First Amendment rights, I think what the decisions are that the social media platforms need to make is how they address disinformation, misinformation, especially related to life threatening issues, like COVID-19 and vaccinations,” Psaki says. But many if not most of those who have been banned are innocent of all those things. Social media companies have been targeting conservatives for quite some time.

Though the Biden administration dresses it up, make no mistake: they are coming for you. They are coming for your freedom, your ideas, your welfare. They are coming for your ability to freely discuss issues and be fully informed. Fight back.

“Joe Biden is taking the border crisis head on” is not a sentence a sane person would speak. Nor a well-informed person. Nor an honest person. But that’s what Biden Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki went with during Tuesday’s propaganda briefing. And interestingly, she also blame the crisis, which Biden caused, on Trump.

“After four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head on and is building a fair, orderly and humane immigration system,” Psaki says. “That’s our objective. After coming into office, our administration immediately jumped into action to address the influx of migrants at the border – something that began during and was exacerbated by the Trump administration.”

Previously, Psaki admitted that the Biden Administration “may have” caused the crisis at the border. Ever since he became President, Biden has caused new COVID-19 outbreaks when migrants tested positive and were not made to quarantine. The problem is so bad that almost 3/4 of voters say they are worried that migrants are spreading COVID to our communities.

Psaki can blame the crisis on Trump all she wants, but illegals themselves admit that they would not be here if not for Biden welcoming them over. And Mexico sure didn’t accuse Trump of having lax policies that allowed cartels to expand operations — especially into human trafficking.

Democrats will blame anything on Trump — even things they verifiably caused. It’s truly sad that the Biden White House is less transparent than the Trump Administration, which was always up front with the American people. Biden needs to reverse these policies now — while we still have a country. Watch it below:

If President Trump had given North Korea or Russia or China or Iran info on another country’s covert operations, the leftist media would have thrown a collective fit. He would have been called a traitor and worse. The same goes for any Republican. But Democrats apparently can give other nations’ secrets to hostile foreign powers without any concern at all.

Leaked New York Times audio caught John Kerry telling Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif about Israeli covert operations in Syria.

This is pretty major news — news that the White House naturally would be eager to address. Well, unless it’s the Biden White House. Propaganda Minister Jen Psaki stepped out in front of the American people and did what she does best: told us nothing.

“We’re not going to comment on leaked tapes,” Psaki said when asked about this damning revelation. Such an action would have sunk anyone in the Trump Administration but apparently John Kerry is too important to be expected to follow the same rules everyone has to. He endangered the lives of our allies by giving an enemy important secret information.

Americans deserve better. We need to know everything about this and both Kerry and Psaki should resign. But we can expect this to be covered up just like everything else. The White House thinks Americans aren’t important enough to know the truth about what its representatives are doing. We shouldn’t and can’t stand for this.

Yesterday, Joe Biden singlehandedly sent the stock market and cryptocurrency markets into a complete nosedive when a report outlined his plans to increase taxes on people he thinks have too much money. Now, the White House is defending him.

The Dow Jones fell more than 321 points. The S&P dropped 38 points. Nasdaq fell 131 points. All of these losses were about one percent of the market, which dropped in most industries amid the news that Biden wants to double the capital gains tax.

It wasn’t just the stocks that suffered. Across the board, cryptocurrency values plummeted. Most notably, Bitcoin dropped below $50,000 — way below. $47,000 below. Dogecoin fell a whopping 19.32%. Biden plans to raise the capital gains tax to 39.6% — more than double the current rate — for anyone unfortunate enough to make more than $1 million.

On Friday, Biden propaganda minister Jen Psaki stood before the American people and defended the clearly disastrous plans:

“His view is that, that should be on the backs, that can be on the backs of the wealthiest Americans who can afford it and corporations and businesses who can afford it.”

Psaki reminded reporters that Biden pledged not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000 a year — but she said nothing of his plans to force job creators to shoulder the burden for everyone else. “His view, and the view of our economic team, is that won’t have a negative impact,” Psaki says.

She, of course, did not address the overall economic impact of the policy — and with good reason. Such a move will cause the wealthy to leave America in droves. It will decrease tax revenue and cause businesses to close. This will destroy our economy — but that’s what Democrats want. You can’t have socialism without destroying everything first. Watch her below:

Joe Biden’s border policies are, to say the least, weak. They have enabled a surge in human trafficking, sex trafficking, drugs, and even disease as migrants, feeling invited, surge across the border. In many cases, illegals are taking advantage of gaps in border fencing to come into the country.

Recently, it became known that “migrants” were testing positive for COVID but not being required to quarantine. This means that they are spreading the pandemic throughout our communities. A poll showed that most Americans were concerned by this. The Biden administration though? Not so much.

Despite the President*’s policies being proved a disaster, White House Press Secretary won’t say if Biden will ever commit to fixing the problem. Psaki says the administration’s focus is on “addressing the needs” of migrant children, but she completely failed to address the larger issues presented by Biden’s policies.

Legal immigrants who go through the proper channels should absolutely be considered for entry into the country. But that’s not what is happening now. Joe Biden told illegals who had stayed in Mexico and other countries because of President Donald Trump’s tough border policies to come on over. He opened the border to a surge like we have never seen before.

There have been smaller invasions of our nation than the number who come to America illegally today. In the American Revolution, 50,000 British troops stormed American soil. Border Patrol arrested more than 78,000 illegals in January alone. That doesn’t even factor in the ones who got away or managed to sneak by our lax security without issues. Democrats may not see this as a problem, but the rest of us do.

Joe Biden promised he would be transparent with the American people. Unfortunately, that isn’t what has happened. His administration — most notably White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki — has repeatedly deflected, hidden information, refused to answer simple questions, and all around betrayed Americans where that promise is concerned. On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace held Psaki to account for all that.

“The only way we know how bad conditions are for some 5,000 minors in his Border Patrol facilities is because of these pictures that members of Congress have released on their own,” Wallace said. “Jen, these kids are living in these conditions now.”

“They’re not living in these conditions some indeterminate time from now when the president says everything will be fixed,” Wallace continued. “So why not allow reporters and camera crews in on a pool basis based domain safely to show the American people what’s happening in those border patrol facilities right now?”

“Chris, we are absolutely committed to that, the president is committed to that, I’m committed to that, Secretary Mayorkas is committed to that,” Psaki replied before Wallace interrupted, “When?”

“We want to provide access into the border patrol facility,” Psaki insisted. “We are mindful of the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic. We want to keep these kids safe, keep the staff safe, but we are absolutely committed to transparency and providing access to media to the border patrol facilities, and we are working to get that done as soon as we can.”

“But just to clarify, you allowed a camera crew in to see the HHS facilities, but we are talking about here are the Border Patrol facilities, the detention cells, you know there is a law that they are not allowed to be there for more than 72 hours, many of them are there for ten days,” Wallace said. “At this point, in terms of allowing access to Border Patrol facilities for reporters, you are being less transparent than the Trump administration.”

This is true. The Trump administration was the most transparent in the history of the United States. Biden and Democrats love to attack President Trump, but the fact is that he was always and always will be interested in serving the American people. Watch it below:
