Jen Psaki who seems an effective press secretary, was asked a few days ago if the Biden Administration supported the existence of the US Space Force. Her response indicated that she thought the question was a joke and that she did not know of the existence of the latest addition to the armed forces of the United States. The creation of the Space Force has been widely covered in the press. The head of the space Force has a seat in the Joint Chiefs of Staff committee and the SF is now a full member of the Intelligence Community. A day later she announced to the WH press corps that the Biden Administration does indeed support the US Space Force. General Raymond, the Chief of Space Operations has since offered to go over to WH to brief on the existence and missions of the SF. It seems passing odd to me that an intelligent person like Psaki who obviously follows the news in detail would not have know of the Space Force.
2. President Biden actually said yesterday that "the great majority of FBI agents are good people" or words to that effect. This was on a day when two FBI were killed and three wounded in line of duty during an attempted search of a dwelling. With these words Biden endorsed the political positions of the Left rather than supporting the efforts of law enforcement in the US. Incredible! pl
Joe’s damning with faint praise? I suspect a further purge of the “disloyal” in the police ranks is in the making. After the mostly peaceful summer of love me some cops, I have to ask why an FBI computer forensic specialist is the lead door basher in a ‘run of the mill’ search warrent serving? Some right wingers are saying the agent was involved in investigating Hunter’s laptop, along with his career tracking down child porn traffickers. (No idea about the veracity of that). Apparently the suspect had no record at all. If so it seems odd you would need to bash in the door instead of just pull his car over when he goes out for groceries, or dinner.
Very faint praise.
The suspect knew too much. He had to go, apparently.
I don’t know how a Press Secretary doesn’t know about the Space Force either. It’s been all over the news.
As for Biden, I didn’t understand why he said what he did, either. I came across the remarks that led to what you quote.
“You know, one of the things, when you are in a combat zone of the military or you’re a FBI agent, or military or a police officer, every family just – when they put that shield on and go out in the morning – dreads the possibility of a call – receiving that phone call,” Biden said. “But they put their lives on the line, and it’s a hell of a price to pay. And every single day, every single one of these folks get up and they – by and large, the vast, vast majority of these men and women are decent, honorable people who put themselves on the line, and we owe them.”
I don’t know if he was trying to explain the risks the military and law enforcement take to the generally Woke crowd or to a broader audience of nonwhites who are all riled up about the evils of cops. Equity and race and immigration and white supremacy have been key topics so far for the new administration. I sure hope we don’t continue to hear about them at the same level for the next four years.
I saw this over at the Daily Mail:
“Joe Biden uses National Prayer Breakfast to call to confront and defeat ‘political extremism and white supremacy’ – and Donald Trump is only ex-president not to take part in event”
I have no use for any of the QAnon and wild conspiracy talk out there but it seems like there’s a lot of talk painting all whites who are not Woke as being white supremacists and I object to that a lot. I am not thrilled to see all living presidents except one join the white supremacist bandwagon. Once again it looks like the elite are attacking white people who are already upset and not doing well in this country and who are not white supremacists even if they want less immigration to this country.
More like damning with feint praise.
The KGB was law enforcement.
Were they “good people?”
jerseycityjoan, If you’d like to feel better for a little while
try listening to Thomas Sowell, Glen Loury, John McWorter & even
young Coleman Hughes, they’re all over YouTube. They’re all African
Americans & highly educated. Biden-Harris obviously prefer the likes of Ibram X Kendi if going the intellectual route or falling back on the old race hustlers like Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton. If you listen to the Black academics I’ve suggested you’ll feel better
but only for awhile.
Biden-Harris aren’t just lefties, they’re globalists.
