Media Critic On New WH Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre: “Amateur Hour”

Media Critic On New WH Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre: “Amateur Hour”

The new White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre is not off to a great start. She has a hard time answering direct questions, frequently reads from notes, and genuinely seems out of her league. Media critic Joe Concha recently reviewed her performance and his estimation, while brutal, was correct. He wrote at The Hill: TRENDING: Leftist DC Archbishop Gregory Stands with Pelosi and Her Abortion to Birth Policies - Will Not Order Priests to Refuse Her Communion Amateur hour at the White House briefing room Karine Jean-Pierre made her historic debut as White House...

Whoa: Florida Gov. DeSantis Tops Trump In Wisconsin 2024 Straw Poll

Whoa: Florida Gov. DeSantis Tops Trump In Wisconsin 2024 Straw Poll

When the field of Republican presidential candidates begins to round out for 2024, one of the things most political junkies, regardless of what side of the aisle they are on, will be watching to see if former President Donald Trump decides to make another run for the White House. But if the results of a recent poll might indicate, while Trump still leads GOP candidates, others may be nipping at his heels. They are TERRIFIED of Ron DeSantis.https://t.co/htzp5azM8t — Rob Smith 🇺🇸 (@robsmithonline) May 23, 2022 RELATED: WATCH: Rudy Giuliani Fires Back At ‘Brainwashed’...

Military plane delivers 35 tons of baby formula amid Biden administration’s push to end shortage

On Wednesday, 192 House Republicans voted against a bill to provide $28 million to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to increase inspection staff—remember that a key reason for the shortage was concerns about contamination forcing the closure of a major formula plant—as well as preventing the sale of fraudulent formula during the crisis and improving data collection. Just 12 voted for the bill. Nine House Republicans also voted against a bill to ensure that people on the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) can access formula, given a system where states contract with specific formula...

Ronna McDaniel Still Not Up for the Job – Does Not Take Election Integrity Seriously

Ronna McDaniel Still Not Up for the Job – Does Not Take Election Integrity Seriously

GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel joined Martha MacCallum on FOX News Sunday earlier today. McDaniel still refuses to admit the 2020 election was stolen from President Donald Trump. By not doing so she does not have to look at her role in the greatest criminal act in US history. McDaniel still tip-toes around the election integrity issue. This week American voters saw once again how the election process will be handled with Democrat led states in the coming months — JUST LIKE they handled the elections in 2020. They are still “counting” votes in the...

McConnell Attacks Rand Paul As ‘Isolationist’ For Putting America First Before Ukraine

McConnell Attacks Rand Paul As ‘Isolationist’ For Putting America First Before Ukraine

When he wasn’t busy ramming massive aid packages for foreign countries through the Senate, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell took a swipe at his fellow Kentucky Senator Rand Paul on Thursday, calling him “an isolationist.” McConnell’s comments come as a response to Paul’s delaying of the $40 billion aid package to Ukraine that the Senate voted on earlier this week. The measure was ultimately passed with only 11 ‘nay’ votes, all from Republicans. Why did Mitch McConnell just go to Ukraine for a photo op with Zelensky instead of addressing US inflation, record high...

Lara Logan, Once a Star at CBS News, Is Now One for the Far Right

Lara Logan, Once a Star at CBS News, Is Now One for the Far Right

When Lara Logan reached the heights of American journalism more than a decade ago, as the chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News, her bosses didn’t think twice about sending her to cover the biggest stories in the world. Producers clamored to work with her as she landed interviews with a Taliban commander, chronicled the Arab Spring and tracked the Ebola outbreak. Former President Barack Obama called her to wish her well after the most traumatic event of what seemed like a limitless career: She was sexually assaulted while covering a demonstration in Cairo’s...

From fake customer accounts to fake job interviews, Wells Fargo is just the worst

From fake customer accounts to fake job interviews, Wells Fargo is just the worst

Former Wells Fargo executive Joe Bruno says he was fired after telling superiors that the fake interview practice was “inappropriate, morally wrong, ethically wrong.” Wells Fargo says Bruno wasn’t the one retaliated against, but was fired for retaliating against a fellow employee. But whatever the reason for Bruno’s firing (and company claims that they didn’t retaliate against workers should always be viewed as suspect), The New York Times found seven current and former Wells Fargo employees who were instructed to carry out fake interviews and another five who were aware of the practice. So the fact...

Biden Job Approval Tanks To New Low, Only 26% Of Hispanics Approve

As Americans are forced to deal daily with crisis after crisis brought on by his administration, President Joe Biden’s job approval numbers continue to go down, hitting their lowest point yet. And with the midterm elections looming, even Biden’s fellow Democrats are having trouble defending him. According to the latest Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research poll, only 39% of Americans approve of Biden’s job performance. But there are even worse, eye-popping numbers in the poll. What’s lower: Joe Biden’s approval numbers or CNN’s ratings? — Nick Adams (@NickAdamsinUSA) April 12, 2022 RELATED: First...
