Karine Jean-Pierre


Recommended Posts

A number of years ago she used to do a recurring segment on PBS Newshour debating conservative Matt Schlapp. My opinion was they were both such political hacks that I found them unwatchable. Based on that, I’m skeptical she will do well in this position.

Because quite often the people hiring them and/or the media do.

He was making a joke about this administration and woke progressives in general being being obsessed with race.

Based on that...seems the type of person who would do well as this...depending on what "do well means".

Really informing the American People?  No, certainly not.

Providing the administration approved spin?  Yeah, probably good at that.  Which seems to be what this job is all about for a while now.

I think she’ll spar with the conservative press members. She’ll also give them too much fodder.  It will muddy the administration’s message.

I think he got the "joke". You must admit that it is at least slightly ironic that folks who complain over and over again about the left bringing race and gender into most discussions can't help but bring it up themselves every chance they get

To be fair, liberals are the ones who are directly telling us they are doing this.

Ask Jen, this is how she presented Karine to the media.  Obviously the left cares that she is all of these things.

Direct Headline: Biden conducted fewer press conference than any of his five predecessors in Year One and has given fewer media interviews than six, according to new analysis

President Joe Biden has given far fewer press conferences in his first year of presidency than his five predecessors. In Year One, President Biden has only given nine formal press conferences – six solo and three jointly with visiting foreign leaders. He has also conducted 22 media interviews. By comparison, at this point in their respective presidencies Donald Trump conducted 21 press conferences, Barack Obama was at 27, George W. Bush at 19, Bill Clinton at 38 and George H. W. Bush at 31...These interviews included one-on-one sessions with journalists at three of the major television networks, three CNN town halls, an appearance on MSNBC, a trio of regional television interviews via Zoom, as well as conversations with late night host Jimmy Fallon and ESPN'S Sage Steele....'Fleeting exchanges are insufficient to building the historical record of the president´s views on a broad array of public concerns. We have had scant opportunities in this first year to learn the president´s views on a broad range of public concerns,' said Steven Portnoy, president of the White House Correspondents' Association....

Direct HeadlineWhite House Reporters: Biden Team Wanted Our Questions in Advance

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....Biden’s press team did not deny that staffers had solicited questions from reporters...

******

1) New COVID19 restrictions means the formerly rotating pool on the fringes of the Press Room were booted out. The larger activist complicit MSM brands get the best positions and seating. This is a methodology to control who gets to ask what questions and when.

2) This helps to keep the cronyism in place as it's been revealed that in order to "play ball" and get your questions covered, you need to hand over editorial control to Jen Psaki and her staff. That staff formerly included Karine Jean-Pierre. Now KJP will demand editorial control from the "free press"  When you have control over what people will ask ahead of time, and when, and use that to dictate what will eventually get asked, then it's just propaganda.

3) This compounds the problem that previously Psaki and her team, now KJP, ( as proxies for Susan Rice) want all the questions in advance. The only reason that Peter Doocy of Fox is not ignored is Biden's former Chief of Staff, Danny O'Brien, is Fox's current head lobbyist and Biden's most connected media donor for decades, David Cohen, was a power player at Comcast and was paid off with an Ambassadorship,  and has a massive financial incentive to protect Fox.

Psaki was left up like a human punching bag day after day because Biden spent a long time hiding from the Press Corps and the entire administration has been a complete disaster zone with scandal after scandal. Her only real job was to try to hold onto the suburban women's voters block ( which was lost) and young white college aged females ( which was held onto by Biden, barely)

Biden preaches diversity, but he has a long history of racism and attacking Black America and he needed a white woman who rode the "Yuppie Brigade" tone to try to hold onto white female voters. So much for "diversity"

That you assess the frequency of Psaki's press conferences to some kind of success is completely bizarre and has no context with actual media optics reality.

Direct HeadlineWhite House Press Corps Handed Editorial Control to Biden Team

By insisting upon a “background with quote approval” as a condition of speaking with members of the press, the Biden administration has been able to revise and even throw out quotes that White House staff have given to reporters — ensuring a less accurate, but rosier picture for the public....“If you’ve read a quote from an administration official in a newspaper or a wire story recently, there’s a good chance that the White House communications team had an opportunity to edit it first....Peter Baker, chief White House correspondent for the New York Times called it “a pernicious, insidious, awful practice that reporters should resist,” going so far as to say that the practice allows powerful figures to “control what is in” stories about them....

Direct Headline:  White House Correspondents Reflect On Covering Joe Biden One Year In: “It’s Full Circle”

Kelly O’Donnell, NBC News’ senior White House correspondent, last week took to holding up a sign, reading “Russia talks,” to get Biden’s attention. It didn’t work, but perhaps it is the shape of things to come...( PETER DOOCY)  I think I was the first one to go in there and ask questions about Covid policy as someone who just had Covid… I tried to make the point when I first got back, as the variants change, their language stays the same. And so, I am somebody that has done everything the administration has asked. Social distancing, masking, triple vaxxed, and still got it. So I’m just curious why the language has not changed with that...On June 16, following his Geneva summit with Vladimir Putin, Biden lashed out at Collins after she asked him about how, given Putin’s ongoing downplaying of human rights issues, the meeting could have been constructive. “If you don’t understand that, you’re in the wrong business,” Biden said. ...On July 27, after Biden’s Oval Office remarks with the prime minister of Iraq, he snapped (regarding a question on a vaccine mandate at the Department of Veterans Affairs) “You are such a pain in the neck, but I am going to answer your question because we’ve known each other for so long.”...

*****

1) Even with the endless volley of pure softballs, the changeover to KJP doesn't remove the problem - Biden is still a risk to lash out at reporters and some have taken up to holding up signs to try to get him to address them. Point to note - The Boris Johnson interview was a massive tipping point where the ENTIRE WH Press Corps went to Psaki and KJP to complain. Not casually but in writing. ALL OF THEM.

2) Even power players from The New York Times and CBS, that lean activist complicit left, have gone on record to plainly say the stories released are being controlled and the scant media engagement is an active strategy to leave no real record ( i.e. implying the endless number of scandals and tanking of this current administration)  But this makes sense as the previous records of Biden conspiring with white supremacists in Congress to draft all the major crime bills to specifically punish young black men in America have come to haunt him. As well as having a KKK Exalted Cyclops as a mentor. And lying about organizing Civil Rights protests. And lying about standing alongside Nelson Mandela for social justice. And getting caught for plagiarism in the 80s ( How incompetent do you need to be caught for that in the 80s?)  Being "on record" has never ended well for Joe Biden.

What does Jean-Pierre going up day after day do for this administration? It's still a complete disaster zone.

Also hard prep for these kind of press conferences is a lot of work. Even with a full staff. And Psaki is gone. Symone Sanders is gone. TJ Ducklo is gone. No one with real talent is going to sign onto a sinking ship.

More press conferences, through someone completely unqualified by Jean-Pierre, means more exposure with less preparation for a regime that consistently gets itself into stupid scandal after stupid scandal.

Why in the entire world would you think MORE EXPOSURE to the media is a good thing here?

Direct Headline: Press Records Show Joe Biden Is The Least Accessible President In Modern History

One of the most infuriating parts of Joe Biden’s presidency....is the mere fact that he is the least accessible president in modern history....While Biden has made a habit of hiding from the White House Press Corps, his handlers have also rarely allowed him to do any interviews. As of December 1, Biden has done just 18 media interviews in the entire year, while Trump had already done 89 during the same point in his presidency. Former Presidents Barack Obama (141), George W. Bush (44), Clinton (53), George H.W. Bush (46), and Ronald Reagan (46) all did significantly more interviews during the same timeframe of their presidency....Apparently Biden is much busier than Herbert Hoover, who averaged 67 press conferences during the heart of the Great Depression from 1929-1933, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who found time to average 59 solo press conferences between 1940-1945 in the middle of something called World War II....

Direct Headline: WH reporters roiled by ‘spacing constraints’ excuse to limit access to Biden Q&As

President Biden’s recent interactions with reporters in the spacious White House East Room have resembled press conferences, but with a twist: his staff selects which reporters attend, citing “spacing constraints” for why they exclude most White House correspondents.....The nearly 3,000-square foot event space is the largest room in the White House and can fit hundreds of people. But reporters interested in attending one of the semi-regular Biden forums must RSVP electronically and then White House staff pick a small number who are allowed to attend alongside the rotating daily press pool...

******

The term "gaffe" was pushed forward by the activist complicit MSM to operate as a "catch all" to try to shield Biden's idiotic unhinged behavior with low information voters.

There's been a concerted effort to keep Biden away from the press but there are limits to how much you can prevent someone from addressing the public and the entire world in this kind of position.

Jean Pierre was in charge of staff selections for which WH correspondents got inside or out. At the price of giving their questions in advance and being forced to hand over editorial content. The only real exceptions around that were Peter Doocy and Jacqui Heinrich. Do you think the rest of the Press Corps has forgotten that Jean-Pierre made them beg day after day to keep their jobs?

Even with a literal diet of softballs, Psaki got completely massacred by Doocy day after day. Not because he's so talented, it's because the situation was so indefensible.

Biden is a clear one term POTUS with no chance at reelection. This means what's left of the Press Corps doesn't need to roll soft anymore. KJP is completely unqualified for this job. I'm going to be fair, it's a very hard job to do even if you are actually skilled. And there is already existing bad blood for KJP from the existing media who had to spend day after day trying to play the stupid little games that Susan Rice set up just so they could do their jobs at the most minimal level.

Media Optics 101 here - You have to be at least average in terms of performing as a political administration for propaganda to actually have half a chance to try to work out for you.

This is the indefensible being defended by someone who doesn't have the skill to guard it.

Jean Pierre being elevated to this job is just open masochism. I actually feel sorry for her.

Direct Headline: White House blames Boris Johnson after U.S. press corps denied opportunity to ask questions

Members of the White House press corps filed a formal complaint after a meeting between President Biden and the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson ended with questions only from members of the British press...Yet the White House appeared to point the finger at Johnson, insisting the British leader was responsible for the seemingly chaotic scenes in the Oval Office by springing an unplanned news conference. CBS News Radio’s White House correspondent Steven Portnoy, who is also president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, said in a pool report dispatch on Tuesday that “the entire editorial component of the US pool went immediately into Jen Psaki’s office to register a formal complaint that no American reporters were recognized for questions in the president’s Oval Office.”

********

Karine Jean Pierre has noted mental health issues. That's not a secret. It is actual malpractice against basic humanity to put someone up in that situation into the worst possible media optics job in the entire world right now to defend a sitting POTUS that many people believe has dementia and as Ben Shapiro calls it - "The guy is a breathing houseplant"

KJP inherits triple the workload with half of an already proven to be incompetent media staff.

There has to be an ethical line to take someone, only approved because no one else with any shred of talent would take this kind of job as a political punching bag, who has a clear past of emotional/mental health distress and put them into this spot. Why? Because she's black and gay and a woman? If this administration wanted that, Susan Rice could have just given Lori Lightfoot the job instead.

Joe Rogan said it plain. Whomever is "handling" Joe Biden right now is committing elder abuse. Rogan said it was clear to him that Biden no longer had any kind of self agency whatsoever. To put KJP up there, esp with the Hunter Biden situation about to explode all over the national daily media cycle, is also purely abusive.

Everything the Obama/Biden/Harris/Rice regime touches turns to pain, death, suffering and misery for those around them.

Direct Headline: After 50 days as president, Biden still hasn’t given a news conference. Critics and allies wonder why.

Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton both did their first one after just nine days in office. Barack Obama waited 20 days. And Donald Trump had been president for only a week before giving his first news conference...But Joe Biden still hasn’t had a formal news conference since his inauguration on Jan. 20. Thursday was his 50th full day in office...The seven-week stretch is the longest a new president has gone without meeting the press in the past 100 years

******

1) Biden has a primary responsibility for foreign policy and foreign relations. That's a hallmark of the POTUS position. You don't help bridge common ground with allies when you have your Press Secretary, whether it's Psaki or now Karine Jean-Pierre, blame Boris Johnson for a WH aide cutting off everyone in the most ridiculous unprofessional fashion possible. What happened was a failure to protect the perception of the Office Of The President. That's independent from whom is actually sitting in that seat at the moment. Looking weak in front of the international stage is also a matter of long term national security. That failure doesn't just rest on Susan Rice and Jennifer Dillon, it also spawns from the incompetence of Psaki and Jean-Pierre.

2) The ENTIRE White House Press Corp, that's ALL OF THEM, including the majority of left leaning activist complicit outlets like the Washington Post, went to film a formal complaint about the entire situation. ALL OF THEM. That's a problem because all that built up antagonism from all these journalists will now be directed at KJP.

3) There's a clear troubling pattern, where Biden waited to give a news conference longer than has not been seen in American political history IN A HUNDRED YEARS.  Biden, through his handlers, is avoiding the press on a consistent basis. This entire administration is a disaster zone full of scandal and inflicting punishment on the American people and he has no answers to give nor excuses that will make sense. He just babbles, wanders around, shouts bizarre things, sniffs hair and makes things up that even his Coms team can't spin out of to salvage. Of course he doesn't want to talk to the press. But that's part of the job.

Karine Jean-Pierre has to stand in front of all that. She's already proven, like Psaki, that she has absolutely no respect nor ethical boundaries with the "free press" And you want her to do MORE OF IT than anyone else in American political history?

To do what? Explain away hair sniffing and going down memory lane about Corn Pop?

Jean-Pierre: "I have an announcement for the entire nation. It needs to be discussed before inflation, starving infants, people on the Terror Watch list breaching the Southern Border and children being indoctrinated about masturbation in the 2nd grade.  Merrick Garland has spent weeks in intensive investigations and the DOJ has come to the conclusion that Corn Pop is indeed a very bad dude. If there was push up contest, he's not just random dog faced pony soldier."

Jean-Pierre sits down with Judy Woodruff to discuss her parents’ pursuit of the American dream, her struggle with mental health, why young people should make their voices heard and beating Donald Trump.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGFtx-Pokjs

 

*****

The White House will be in another self inflicted disaster zone very very very soon. When Psaki left, the internal "identity politics" pressure was to replace her with Karine Jean-Pierre, who is a mid 40s gay black mother with stated mental health challenges.  KJP's window was closing very fast in terms of opportunity for the Press Secretary slot because of her age timeline against her practical experience timeline. This is not Steve Young taking the job after Joe Montana is traded. This like replacing Browning Nagle with Dan McGwire.

The major problem is the person best suited left( in so much as is possible in this disaster zone of an administration ) is John Kirby from the Pentagon. Who has a deep military background. There is inherent value in a stable established military voice especially after what happened in Afghanistan. But he's a straight white male.

Symone Sanders stabbed Bernie Sanders in the back to work for Obama. She expected the Press Secretary slot as a reward. When she didn't get it and was turfed to the Harris faction, she waited it out then left, snitching on her way out the door. I can't quite blame the Obama/Biden/Harris/Rice regime for not wanting to elevate Sanders, a turncoat can't be trusted. However it sends the message that anyone who does anything for this administration is going to be get thrown down a flight of stairs whether they deserved it or not.

What's the story here? Psaki spent several decades in public relations/media and her credibility is ruined for life. She went up and lied and kept lying and more critically, was bad at lying. Fundamentally bad. Her only landing spot was MSNBC, hard left propaganda, which looks like it will have it's ranks purged soon, starting with Joy Reid, so who knows how long Psaki will last there. The best replacement based on practical strategy just happens to be a straight white male but what is more critical is his military background. But since Obama demanded that Susan Rice fill all levels of staffing with the "right minority" then you have an ugly situation where if Kirby got the job, it would look like Jean-Pierre got carpet bombed and shafted by "systematic racism"

Functioning to actual political strategy in replacing Psaki would indicate pragmatism over identity politics. But that's not the compelling narrative desired here. What works is going to take a backseat to what's woke.

Jean-Pierre got a test run half a year ago and pretended she didn't know the entire story behind what Doocy asked. THAT'S HER JOB. That's literally the worst spin/lie  you could tell in that situation. Her wannabe Obama like hand gestures were also over the top. Why KJP and Gavin Newsom persist in that is kind of bizarre. KJP is unqualified but hits the right intersectional checklist. So she fits right in with rest of this disastrous toxic Biden staff.

And you are clamoring for more of it non stop. LOL.

Anyone want to bet that Karine doesn't beat that record too?  :popcorn:

Press Briefing by Press Secretary Jen Psaki, May 5, 2022

https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/press-briefings/2022/05/05/press-briefing-by-press-secretary-jen-psaki-may-5-2022/


"So, I just want to take the opportunity to celebrate and congratulate my friend, my colleague, my partner in truth, Karine Jean-Pierre, the next White House Press Secretary.....Now, many people in this room have known her for some time, but for anyone who does not know her, I want to provide a little bit of a primer for you, so settle in. ....First, as you all know, she will be the first Black woman, the first out LGBTQ+ person to serve in this role, which is amazing, because representation matters.  And she is going to — she will give a voice to so many, and allow — and show so many what is truly possible when you work hard and dream big, and that matters.  And we should not — we should celebrate that. ....But I also want to make clear what all of her qualifications are, what a remarkable person is.  She got her start in New York City politics.  She comes to this job with decades of experience, even though she looks very young.  We’re both in our 20s.... Having served in communications and political roles on many campaigns, in the Obama-Biden administration, and for both of former — Obam- — President Obama’s campaigns.  ...She’s a longtime advisor to President Biden and Dr. Biden — they are partners — having served in senior roles for him and for both of them back to when he was Vice President.....And she’s worked for a number of advocacy organizations, fighting for issues and justice for so many Americans."
 

*******

During the 2007 Super Bowl, I was still posting in the Shark Pool. This was before The Great Adam Harstaad Experience where my PM inbox was bombarded with unsolicited hammer fists with 'My Opinions Are Your Facts Or Else'  and I just exited that section of the forums.

Something I said back then was when Terry Bradshaw interviewed Lovie Smith and Tony Dungy before Super Bowl XLI, the VERY FIRST THING he asked them was what did it feel like to be the first pair of black coaches to face off against each other in the Super Bowl and did they feel it was a great moment for the entire country.

I said I was offended by this. Because, whatever people might think of Dungy and/or Smith as strategic and tactical football coaches, both men devoted their entire lives to the game. They loved the game, they pursued the game with passion, they sacrificed to attempt to excel at the highest level of the game. Lovie Smith in particular, crawled his way up, stop after stop, at the lower levels to fight to get ahead and raise his coaching profile. That's a very hard life, being a low level underpaid/overworked coach. Of course, some in the Shark Pool called me a racist for saying that.

I said I wanted Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith to be recognized first and foremost for their football acumen and resume, or their lack of it in areas, rather than just be propped up for identity politics and virtue signaling. I didn't want them to be seen as "black coaches who beat back an oppressive system looking to stop their success", I wanted them to be acknowledged for their actual merit in service for the greater good for all whom purely loved the game itself.

I don't blame Terry Bradshaw. He was just doing his job. He was doing what his producers wanted, which was to drive some kind of "Narrative" that was apeing much of how David Stern marketed the NBA around specific conflict based gossip fodder story lines.

Does Psaki start talking about Jean-Pierre's vast resume in media optics? Because it's not there. She's an Obama loyalist who gets shuffled to one post or another within the regime because she's in line with the intersectional agenda. Now Psaki points out first and foremost that Jean-Pierre should be DEFINED by her skin color, whom she prefers to sleep with at night and that she was born a woman.

Not "merit" or "accomplishment" but simply IDENTITY above all else.

Do you think Martin Luther King Jr would be proud of this moment? The man who gave his life to send the message to the entire world that it's the content of your character, and how that impacts your choices to do the right thing even when it's the hardest thing in the world, that matter the most, not the color of your skin. Because when Psaki hilariously called KJP her "partner in truth", an over-privileged wealthy white woman rooting from the "social elite" decided to hold up a minority woman as nothing more than a prop for more propaganda. Like an entitled suburban "Karen" holding up a new pair of overpriced shoes or a handbag that costs more than the average working class American's monthly rent.

You want to know why Karine Jean-Pierre is being defined in public by her "Identity Politics" based attributes over her limited skill set? Don't ask us, ask Jen Psaki and the Biden Administration. Ask them why they violated every principle that MLK ever taught about racial identity and it's actual value in a country he hoped would move forward into a better world for everyone.

Let's break this down.

Jean-Pierre, as I said before, is in way over her head. Right now, only Peter Doocy is asking her any kind of "hard" questions.

At this level of the game,

1) Don't slouch. (If I have to say this out loud at this level of media optics, it's basically a kiss of death here for KJP's media career prospects)

2) You are expected to have the "Uhms..." and "You Knows" filtered out before you take this kind of critical job. This is literally the most important government media specific position in the entire country.

3) Don't wear clothing that invites viewpoints down your cleavage line.  That's just tasteless.

4) Don't read from a script. Not at this level.

5) Control your pace and cadence. You want "Conversational Flow", not erratic rapid fire hot takes no one can understand or is hopeless to decipher.

6) Doocy is your natural enemy in that room, you need to "Set The Edge", that means you needed to lend the message that you are going to body bag him, so you need to kill shot him in the national daily media cycle and make it go viral. You get one shot at this and you failed spectacularly.

7) Most important for KJP at this stage, given her limited skill set - You must limit creating brutal counter narratives against yourself, your personal brand, your perceived image and your administration.

"That was something important for him to do"

OK, what else is Biden doing that is "more" important? What is "less" important? Now you've opened up lanes for inflation, Border Crisis, Afghanistan, Baby Formula Crisis, gasoline prices, fentynal, all the things can you can't spin control.

"He has visited other communities"

OK, which ones. When. Under which circumstances. What about every Big Blue City that was burned down and looted from enabled rioting?  Did he visit them? Was it "important" enough to visit them?

Did Biden visit the local communities of the 13 Marines killed during the last stages of the Afghanistan exit?

Did Biden visit the mothers who threw their babies into razor wire, hoping to get them over the fence line, before they were slaughtered the Taliban and turned into sexual slaves?

Did Biden visit the community of Bishop Evans, the Texas National Guardsman, a black male, who drowned saving two drug mules? Why not? And, linked to that, did Biden ever visit the family of Brian Terry, the Border Patrol agent who was killed by a gun given to the Sinaloa Cartel during Operation Fast and Furious using our tax dollars to pay for it?

I could go on with counter narratives forever. Doocy could have picked up on any number of them and continued to pummel KJP.

I checked quite a few "boxes" here tonight, didn't I?

Direct Headline: Conflicts of Interest? New WH Press Secretary Married to CNN Anchor, Plus, Anti-Israel Sentiments May 13, 2022

WASHINGTON - The new White House press secretary takes over today. Karin Jean-Pierre's promotion makes her the first black person to hold the key post.

Direct HeadlineBiden’s new press secretary sparks conflict-of-interest concerns over relationship with CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux

President Biden’s trailblazing pick for his new press secretary is already being accused of creating troubling conflicts of interest because of her long-term relationship with star CNN reporter Suzanne Malveaux....Karine Jean-Pierre — who next Friday will be both the first black and first openly gay person to hold the key White House post — lives with the network’s national correspondent in Washington, DC, with their 7-year-old daughter.....It also comes after her soon-to-be-predecessor, Jen Psaki, sparked similar conflict concerns for keeping the top job for six weeks after it was widely reported she’d been hired by left-leaning network MSNBC.....CNN has yet to officially comment, but network sources told The Post that while Malveaux will remain one of its national correspondents, she will not cover the White House or other politics while her partner serves in her new role.....

So Biden ( really Susan Rice, who are we kidding here...) picks KJP, someone woefully ill suited and unqualified to do the job of Press Secretary and also with real baggage, like being married to a CNN correspondent. Just because she has the "Holy Trinity Of Identity Politics" - Being gay, a woman and black.

How is that working out for Lori Lightfoot?

CNN promises everyone that there will be no "conflict of interest" at all. Sure, because CNN has a track record of no conflicts of interest at all.

I'm not going to blame KJP for taking the best job she could get and find. I mean even if you are out of your depth, if someone wants to pay you and give you power, not for merit though, then you have to go out and make the most of it. That's just real life.

But notice the consistent pattern of just plain stupid that happens with this Biden Administration. Why keep picking people over their "identity" when you can't afford the lost votes that come with the implied baggage you can't hide?

So while I did comment on race, gender and sexual orientation, I also did check the box on pure unfiltered conflict of interest and lack of ethics too.

Direct Headline: Karine Jean-Pierre Hates Israel

I don’t know much about the new White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, but if this embarrassing 2019 essay for Newsweek, urging Democrats to skip the AIPAC conference, is any indication of her expertise, she’ll be perfect for the job.....her regurgitation of BDS talking points says just as much. The stilted piece, written when she was with MoveOn, is crammed with tautological gems like: “You cannot call yourself a progressive while continuing to associate yourself with an organization like AIPAC that has often been the antithesis of what it means to be progressive....Unfortunately, AIPAC’s policy and conference speaker choices aren’t its only problems. Its severely racist, Islamophobic rhetoric has proven just as alarming. The organization has become known for trafficking in anti-Muslim and anti-Arab rhetoric while lifting up Islamophobic voices and attitudes.".....

Direct Headline: Jewish and pro-Israel groups react to appointment of new White House press secretary

Criticism of the appointment came mostly from Jewish groups, who think that the White House is further exacerbating the out-of-control rise in anti-Semitism in the United States by appointing someone with Karine Jean-Pierre’s record....Most of what’s known about Jean-Pierre’s perspective on the U.S.-Israel relationship comes from a period when she served as national spokesperson and senior adviser for the left-wing political group MoveOn.org from April 2016 to August 2020, a group that supported the boycott of AIPAC and challenged anti-BDS laws....

“As a child of Holocaust survivors and as an American Jew, I am appalled and frightened that Biden has chosen Ms. Jean-Pierre, who has shown essentially anti-Semitic hostility towards Israel, and is willing to lie about and vilify Israel and Jews to promote her Israelophobic agenda,”....

...“She was the national spokeswoman for a far-left group that advocates for boycotts of Israel, she’s accused Israel of committing ‘war crimes,’ cheered efforts to boycott the mainstream pro-Israel AIPAC conference, and was ‘honored’ to stand alongside anti-Semite Linda Sarsour at a gala in 2017,” said Markstein. ....“These aren’t isolated incidents; they are a pattern of anti-Israel hostility. Jewish Americans are rightfully concerned that at a time of rising anti-Semitism, Ms. Jean-Pierre is being elevated to such an important position in the Biden White House.”....

One of the reasons I use "Direct Headline" ( and doing so gets me mocked all the time, even recently by a Staff member no less) is because I recognize there are lots of radical woke cancel culture leftists who want me silenced. And likely permanently banned too if they could swing it. So when I link to an article titled " Karine Jean-Pierre Hates Israel " , I make the distinction that it's the words of the author, which is why I also always publicly cite and attribute my links, videos and articles.  I exhaustively source everything, thus I cannot be accused of any inciting "title" as my own words. As @Space Captain once said, Old Man Gekko just has to jump through some hoops to have a Conservative opinion voiced here.

But let's move past Jean-Pierre's Holy Trinity Of Identity Politics metrics here, does she also hit the "check list" for being Anti-Semitic as well?

Remember what Jen Psaki said as she announced KJP as the new White House Press Secretary - “Representation matters and she is going to give a voice to so many ...."

Is Karine Jean Pierre going to give a "voice" to the American Jewish community in good faith?

Pierre is going to have a difficult time as she struggled when Psaki was out. I did feel a little for her as she seems ill prepared for this job.
