Tuesday News Roundup: Nobel Madness, Cuomo Hubris, and Psaki Gets the Questions in Advance

You really could never make this stuff up. – Black Lives Matter got themselves a nomination for a Nobel “Peace” Prize on Monday. To celebrate, the group staged yet another riot in Rochester, New York:

Honestly, the globalists are just taunting us at this point.

But wait, there’s more!

Guess who else got themselves a Nobel nomination? Oh, you will never guess this one… – No, I’m not kidding here: Stacey Abrams, who helped steal the Georgia election for Joe Biden, got herself a Nobel Peace Prize nomination:

Hey, at least we know Ms. Abrams won’t be doing any riots – that, after all, would require some physical exertion.

Understand that this just proves that the global elites who are in the process of executing the Great Reset would rather award a “peace” prize to BLM for literally destroying a dozen or so major American cities, and Abrams a “peace” prize for ensuring all the dead in Georgia get registered to vote than to give Donald Trump a “peace” prize for literally bringing real, actual peace to the Middle East.

It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad world, folks.

Wait, she gets the questions in advance and she’s still this awful? – If this story surprises you, you must have slept through the presidential campaign. The very, very, very leftist Daily Beast reports that White House Communications Team staffers have been pre-interviewing compliant members of the fake White House press corps to get their questions in advance of press briefings. No doubt, they realize just how truly, incredibly terrible Press Secretary Jen Psaki is at her job, and needs all the help she can get.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up:

Here’s an excerpt from the Daily Beast story:

If you’re a reporter with a tough question for the White House press secretary, Joe Biden’s staff wouldn’t mind knowing about it in advance.

According to three sources with knowledge of the matter, as well as written communications reviewed by The Daily Beast, the new president’s communications staff have already on occasion probed reporters to see what questions they plan on asking new White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki when called upon during briefings.

The requests prompted concerns among the White House press corps, whose members, like many reporters, are sensitive to the perception that they are coordinating with political communications staffers.

One reporter raised the issue during an informal White House Correspondents Association Zoom call last Friday. According to multiple sources, leaders at the meeting advised print reporters to push back against requests by the White House press team to learn of questions in advance, or simply to not respond to the Biden team’s inquiries.

“While it’s a relief to see briefings return, particularly with a commitment to factual information, the press can’t really do its job in the briefing room if the White House is picking and choosing the questions they want,” one White House correspondent said. “That’s not really a free press at all.”

“It pissed off enough reporters for people to flag it for the [WHCA] for them to deal with it,” another knowledgeable source said.

[End]

So, knowing that almost everyone in the room is fully on their side and had completely discarded their role as protectors of the public interest during the campaign to get their Sock Puppet elected, Psaki’s team felt zero compunction at all about implementing this pre-interview program. But some of these corrupt toadies still like to pretend to be actual journalists from time to time and are now “expressing concerns” about the process.

I must say, though, that after the last 50 years of the press corps completely refusing to make any effort whatsoever to do its job, complaints like those aired in this story ring awfully hollow. If you don’t want to be treated as a smelly, mangy lapdog, then you shouldn’t spend your days acting like a smelly, mangy lapdog.

When asked about the controversy, Ms. Psaki no doubt responded by saying “ummmmm…uhhhh….ummmmm….I’m gonna have to circle back with you on that.”

This really happened in New York yesterday:

I kid you not: The Governor held a press conference in Albany in which he urged New York residents to get off the roads due to the snow storm taking place, declaring a state of emergency in the process, and then got in his car and drove to New York City on the freshly-cleared roads.

From the story at the New York Post:

Do as he says, not as he does.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency over the blizzard, urging people not to travel — then hopped in his car during the throes of the snowstorm Monday and drove himself down to the Big Apple from Albany.

“I want New Yorkers to hear me loud and clear — stay home and off the roads,” the governor said in a statement about his emergency declaration.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also issued a state of emergency for the Big Apple — which banned non-essential travel.

But that didn’t stop the governor from hitting the road. He explained that he didn’t want to be sitting home while telling essential workers, including those clearing the streets, they needed to be on the job.

The governor got behind the wheel in the thick of the snowstorm for the roughly two-and-a-half-hour drive from Albany, where he usually holds press briefings, to helm a news conference at his Manhattan office early Monday afternoon.

“I’m telling you, I’m on the road right now — it is horrendous,” Cuomo admitted during a morning call-in to WCBS radio before reaching Manhattan.

[End]

Per the story in the New York Post, Cuomo even admitted doing what he was doing while on a radio interview with WCBS radio in Manhattan as he was in transit to his office there. The unbridled hubris at play here is almost too astonishing to imagine.

But then again, why wouldn’t Cuomo be just eaten up with hubris? After all, he knows he has the absolute, uninterruptible protection of the news media, which has fawned all over him for the last year even as his policy decisions have undeniably resulted in the needless deaths of thousands of elderly residents in his state’s nursing homes. When confronted with that reality at a press conference late last week, the Governor simply replied, “Who cares where they died? They died.”

Any Republican who offered such a belligerently uncaring answer to that question would be literally hounded from office by his or her state’s news media, and rightly so. But because it was Cuomo, the story was a blip on the screen and the media moved on to more pressing matters, like what some right-wing member of congress posted on Twitter two years ago.

The simple fact is that Cuomo, thanks to the undying protection of the media, is untouchable and he knows it. Thus, he blows off questions about how many elderly New Yorkers he has personally killed and pulls pranks like the one he pulled yesterday, and most likely goes to bed laughing.

Which, come to think of it, is exactly how rulers in France lived a couple hundred years ago, back before they all got their heads cut off.

Sunday News Roundup: The ‘Great Reset” is Coming, and John Kerry Says You Voted For It

Ok, who knew that China Joe Potato Head Biden’s entire COVID-19 plan  was to make sure that radical Islamic terrorists being held at Gitmo got the vaccine before 98% of American citizens? Raise your hand. Anyone? – Yes, that was the news on Friday, anyway, which honestly seemed to me to be so par for the course for any Democrat administration that I chose not to even mention it.

But others did mention it – many, many others. So many, in fact, that the Pentagon announced late Saturday that it was “reconsidering” this latest bone-headed scheme against the American people before it got off the ground:

From a story that you know the leftist slugs at The Hill hated to report:

The Pentagon announced Saturday that it is pausing a plan to offer coronavirus vaccines to prisoners at Guantanamo Bay after facing a wave of pushback.

“No Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. We’re pausing the plan to move forward, as we review force protection protocols. We remain committed to our obligations to keep our troops safe,” tweeted Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.

The reversal comes just days after the Defense Department said it would offer coronavirus vaccines to detainees at Guantánamo Bay, the notorious prison in Cuba, with the rollout possibly coming as soon as next week. The plan was to offer the 40 detainees at the base the first of two doses of the available vaccines “on a voluntary basis.”

It is unknown how many coronavirus cases have occurred on the military base, but the pandemic has presented an obstacle to holding military legal proceedings, including in the case against Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the man who is accused of being one of the masterminds behind the attacks on U.S. soil on Sept. 11, 2001.

The plan had been met with fierce pushback, particularly by Republican lawmakers, before it was paused, especially in light of vaccine shortages across the country.

“It is inexcusable and un-American that President Biden is choosing to prioritize vaccinations for convicted terrorists in Gitmo over vulnerable American seniors or veterans,” Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) said prior to Kirby’s Saturday announcement.

[End]

Thanks to Cong. Stefanik for putting it so bluntly and accurately. “un-American” is this administration’s middle name.

ummmmm…uhhhhh….ummmmm…I’m gonna have to circle back to you on that.:

Hat tip to Mark Dice on that hilarious meme.

The Great Reset is upon us, and you little people must all be miserable so that your Elite Ruling Class can achieve fairness. – That was the essence of the message delivered by French President Emmanuel Macron in Davos, Switzerland this week. Speaking to the annual gathering of the Illuminat, errr, World Economic Forum, Mr. Macron blamed capitalism for all the unfairness in the world, and said that the way to fight COVID-19 is for governments to make sure everyone is equally miserable.

No, really, that’s exactly what he said if you really read his exact words. Here’s an excerpt from a story at Breitbart:

At the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) virtual Davos Agenda summit on Tuesday, French President Emmanuel Macron declared that in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus modern capitalism “can no longer work”.

Appearing before a question and answer session conducted with ‘Great Reset’ architect and founder-chairman of the WEF, Klaus Schwab, Mr Macron said that while capitalism has historically driven down poverty globally, he claimed that it came with the cost of furthering inequality.

“We will get out of this pandemic only with an economy that thinks more about fighting inequalities,” Macron said.

“The capitalist model together with this open economy can no longer work in this environment,” he added.

The French president pronounced that capitalism has resulted in a “deep moral and economic crisis” in which “hundreds and thousands of people throughout the world had this feeling of losing their usefulness.”

[End]

Do you see it? Macron’s thesis here is that the evil “capitalism” that has worked to cut the global poverty rate by 80% over the last 30 years has left “hundreds of thousands of people” around the world with a “feeling of losing their usefulness.”

So, Macron’s “solution” – and the preferred solution for everyone in attendance in Davos, trust me – is for governments to use COVID-19 as their vehicle to eliminate “capitalism” and institute brutish fascism/socialism so that the world’s other 8 billion people can come to feel equally useless. That really is exactly what he is saying there.

And hey, he’s already getting his wish in Democrat-run states and cities around the United States today, where despicable Democrat governors and mayors have used COVID-19 as an excuse to implement rule by brutal edict, putting millions out of work and destroying half of all small businesses in the country. That’s all happened in just the last 10 months. Think of what the ruling elites can achieve towards the advancement of world socialism if they can get the WHO and Anthony Fauci to keep this scam going for another couple of years.

It didn’t get a lot of notice at the time, but in early December John Kerry told us all what was coming during a panel discussion hosted by the World Economic Forum. Macron’s words, along with what has happened since make Kerry look like the prophet of doom he truly is.

Here’s an excerpt from a December 3 story at The Hill:

Internationally, the Great Reset has already been backed by influential leaders, activists, academics and institutions. In addition to the World Economic Forum and United Nations, the Great Reset movement counts among its the International Monetary Fund, heads of state, Greenpeace and CEOs and presidents of large corporations and financial institutions such as Microsoft and MasterCard.

But in America, most policymakers – including President-elect Joe Biden – have been relatively quiet about the Great Reset, leaving many to speculate what a Biden administration would do to support or oppose this radical plan.

There has been some evidence suggesting that Biden and some of his biggest allies back the Great Reset and would attempt to impose it on the United States. But Biden and his team have never explicitly stated that America would be involved — that is, until now.

At a panel discussion about the Great Reset hosted by the World Economic Forum in mid-November, former Secretary of State John Kerry – Biden’s would-be special presidential envoy for climate – firmly declared that the Biden administration will support the Great Reset and that the Great Reset “will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.”

When asked by panel host Borge Brende whether the World Economic Forum and other Great Reset supporters are “expecting too much too soon from the new president, or is he going to deliver first day on this [sic] topics?,” Kerry responded, “The answer to your question is, no, you’re not expecting too much.”

“And yes, it [the Great Reset] will happen,” Kerry continued. “And I think it will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine. In effect, the citizens of the United States have just done a Great Reset. We’ve done a Great Reset. And it was a record level of voting.” 

Kerry later argued that the Great Reset is necessary to slow the “climate crisis” and that “I know Joe Biden believes … it’s not enough just to rejoin Paris [the Paris Climate Accords] for the United States. It’s not enough for us to just do the minimum of what Paris requires.”

[End]

Understand what he’s saying there in the passages I put in bold: In “electing” China Joe to the presidency, Americans just voted for the Great Reset. Biden, or rather his handlers, are fully bought into the strategy to bring about the Great Reset in America, and that is what we see the administration doing to us each and every day.

Every action Biden has taken so far at the direction of his elder-abusing handlers has been designed to eliminate your rights and to impair and shrink the U.S. economy in order to gradually ramp up the misery suffered by the population as a whole. The invasion that is about to begin again at our southern border in the coming days is also a part of this strategy – to stress and strain our country’s resources to the breaking point so that the resulting economic misery can be blamed on “capitalism” and used by the Democrats in p0wer to affect even more misery and ensure it impacts each and every one of us in the name of “fairness.”

That’s what the Great Reset is, and it is coming to you – in the words of John Kerry – “with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.” Best of all, according to Kerry, you voted for it.

Imagine that.

That is all.
