White House press secretary Jen Psaki spent part of her last day on the job trying to do some explaining for her successor, whose history of claiming elections were stolen might seem out of step with an administration that has branded the questioning of voting results as a “threat to democracy.”
The issue bubbled up this week, when old Twitter posts surfaced in which incoming press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre argued that the 2016 presidential election and the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race were “stolen” by the Republican victors. She also used a hashtag “#unprecedented” in reference to President-elect Donald Trump in 2016, and she promoted efforts to block certification of Trump’s victory by denying him the electoral votes that he won.
President Joe Biden and his supporters, including Psaki, have repeatedly called the challenging of election results a “threat to democracy.” And the election-fraud protest that escalated into a violent riot at the US Capitol in January 2021 – seeking to block certification of Biden’s victory – was “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War,” according to the president.
But when confronted about Jean-Pierre’s tweets, Psaki gave her successor a pass. Jean-Pierre “has affirmed that Donald Trump won in 2016,” Psaki told Mediaite on Friday. “Like so many of us, Karine was concerned about the US intelligence community’s unanimous finding that Russia intervened to help Trump. But he won.”
As for Jean-Pierre’s claim that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp stole his victory in 2018, Psaki said, “We all agree the 2018 election in Georgia is settled. And we’re also all concerned about voter suppression issues, including the President. Kemp won and she sees that tweet as having oversimplified the problem.”
Psaki also defended Jean-Pierre’s 2020 attack on Fox News, in which the veteran Democrat activist accused Fox News of being “racist” – a comment that called into question whether she can deal with the White House press corps fairly. “This is a years-old clip of Karine, referring to an opinion host – not a reporter – when she was not in government and not speaking on behalf of the president,” Psaki said.
Then again, Psaki also defended Biden himself after the president suggested earlier this year that the midterm elections – which many expect to go poorly for Democrats – “easily could be illegitimate.” The press secretary turned less condemning of election skepticism, saying of Biden’s comment, “Well, voters should be eyes-wide-open and clear-eyed, and this is what the president was getting at the other night, that people are trying to make it harder for them to vote.”
At least as recently as June 2019, Jean-Pierre was still impugning Trump’s 2020 victory, promoting a claim that the Republican “didn’t actually win the election” and was “put into office because the Russians interfered.” The claim came more than two months after the release of a report by special counsel Robert Mueller, whose exhaustive investigation found no evidence of collusion between Russians and the Trump campaign. Prior to that finding, she had repeatedly used the hashtag “#MuellerTime,” alluding to the damning findings that Trump critics expected from the special counsel.
Judge Orders Biden to Keep Title 42 Barrier
A federal judge has halted President Joe Biden’s plan to end Title 42, ordering federal agencies to continue the program because the termination order likely violates federal law.
The decision is a win for President Joe Biden — but is also a win for the opponents of Biden’s easy migration policy.
Biden wins because he can keep using Title 42 to manage the migrant inflow. Without Title 42, many more migrants would rush the border, forcing TV news executives to broadcast dramatic videos on the evening news. Also, he can blame the judge when his pro-migration allies want to blame someone for the Title 42 barrier.
Pro-American groups also won because they keep the last remaining curbs on the inflow of migrants invited to the U.S. border by Biden and his pro-migration border chief, Alejandro Mayorkas. Each Month, Mayorkas is pressured to exclude one-third of the new migrants into the United States.
In April, Mayorkas exempted 137,000 migrants from Title 42 and allowed them to enter the United States, out of the 235,000 who were recorded at the border. But he also allowed roughly 60,000 more migrants to sneak across the border. So just 138,000 were excluded — and many of those will try again in May because Mayorkas flies very few of them back to their distant homelands.
Mayorkas planned to stop enforcing the barrier on Monday, May 23. But the judge’s decision does not bar Mayorkas from exempting many migrants from the Title 42 barrier.

Pro-American activists welcomed the decision.
“The Biden administration has consciously created an unprecedented surge of illegal migration with Title 42 serving as the last constraint on its plan to completely abandon enforcement of our border,” said a statement from Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
By the Department of Homeland Security’s own reckoning, their decision to cancel Title 42 would have led to at least an immediate doubling of April’s record number of illegal entries, all of whom they planned to quickly process and disperse around the country.
Judge [Robert] Summerhays’ ruling may prevent the crisis from becoming exponentially worse, but it is not a solution to the problem the Biden administration is deliberately inflicting on the American public. The ball is now in Congress’ court, which has the power to hold this rogue administration accountable for its ongoing refusal to carry out its constitutional obligation to enforce our nation’s immigration laws.
“We are gratified that the District Court has issued this Preliminary Injunction to stop the Biden Administration from rescinding Title 42 and turning our already unimaginably catastrophic border nightmare into an even more unimaginable hellscape, said Stephen Miller, founder of America First Legal., a pro-American civil rights group.
A statement from Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) said:
It’s outrageous that President Biden even considered rescinding Title 42 in the midst of a historic crisis at our southern border that’s leaving our country wide open to an influx of illegal drugs and illegal immigrants. While I’m glad to see a Trump-appointed judge block Biden’s senseless decision, the President needs to wake up, face reality and secure our southern border for the safety of Montana communities.
A federal judge just blocked another disastrous decision, but the Biden administration should not see today’s ruling as a political bail out.
The American people deserve a secure border.
I call on President Biden to fully enforce Title 42.

Pro-migrati0n advocates are portraying the judge’s decision as racist because most migrants are not from Europe.
“More than 1.8 million migrants have been denied entry into the U.S. under the policy, forcing many back to the dangerous conditions they were escaping,” according to Isabel Vinent, a director of the Florida Immigrant Coalition. “Title 42 was never about public health, but rather a racist cruel double standard put in place by the Trump administration.”
“Today’s court decision to block the end of Title 42 will cause immeasurable harm to thousands of vulnerable people seeking protection in the United States,” said Jeremy Robbins, executive director of the American Immigration Council, a pro-migration group with ties to immigration lawyers and business donors. “Congress must resist demands to legislate [for] the use of Title 42 in years to come.”
The case is Louisiana v. CDC, 6:22-CV-00885, was filed in the U.S. District Court in the Western District of Lousiana.
Nolte: Fascist NPR Sets Up Snitch Hotline for Mask Offenses
Not only have the fascist welfare queens at NPR set up a snitch hotline for mask offenses, but the fascist welfare queens at NPR are also still forcing their employees to wear those useless masks.
Listen, don’t get me wrong. The thought of all those insufferably smug leftists shoved in filthy masks all day long sparks my heart with joy. But how revealing is this? Here we have one more look at the world the left wants to force the rest of us to live in; a world where people are bullied and threatened to do unnecessary things to prove their fealty. A Stalinist world where snitching is not only encouraged but facilitated with taxpayer dollars by way of a goddamned hotline.
“NPR is maintaining a very strict mask policy,” reports Puck’s Dylan Byers, “and has set up an HR tip line for employees to report on colleagues who are not adhering to guidelines—with the possible result of discipline and even termination.”
NPR is maintaining a very strict mask policy, and has set up an HR tip line for employees to report on colleagues who are not adhering to guidelines—with the possible result of discipline and even termination. This is from a memo sent out today: pic.twitter.com/eRRSgDCaxw
— Dylan Byers (@DylanByers) May 19, 2022
The Byers’ tweet includes the internal memo threatening NPR staffers with termination over mask offenses, along with a reminder that a snitch line is available for any piece of shit who wants to destroy a colleague just because.
For those of you who might still be on the fence about the upcoming election, you do know the left are Nazis, right?
You do know the Democrat party has devolved into the Nazi party, right? The party that releases violent offenders but fires people who don’t wear masks? The party that wants to abort babies even after they’re born and then force the ones who avoid that horror into the horror of public schools filled with sex predators and gay porn? The party that ensures illegal aliens have all the baby formula they need while American babies starve to the point requiring surgery? The party that wants more crime and less speech? More race riots and less affordable energy? More illegal aliens and less housing? More inflation and less prosperity? More billions borrowed from China to give to Ukraine and no more private spaces for biological women?
What kind of person works in an office that encourages snitching?
Can you imagine?
Can you imagine working with snitches? What must that environment be like?
Snitches are the worst people in the world, and this is over nothing. If you’re wearing your mask, what the hell do you care if someone else isn’t?
What the left is doing is painfully obvious… Democrats have forever lost the working class and are now hoping to make that up by raising a generation of unstable, neurotic, dependent, smug, unhappy, and brittle babies who define themselves through conformity and what they do with their sex organs.
From the public schools to NPR, the American taxpayer is subsidizing the creation of an army of fascist, unstable mutants.

Katy Perry: Moving to Kentucky ‘Reminds You that Hollywood Is Not America’
Pop star Katy Perry is confessing something few of her elite liberal Hollywood peers would, saying moving to Kentucky has been an “amazing experience” because “it reminds you that Hollywood is not America.”
“I’m living in Kentucky, and I have for almost a month now, and that’s quite an amazing experience, because it reminds you that Hollywood is not America,” Perry told comedian Chelsea Handler on the Dear Chelsea podcast. “And you need to remember that. Because I think you can understand people better.”
Handler responded, stating, “Yeah, right. It’s nice to get outside of what you know to be normal and your reality.”
“Yeah, I mean, they’re living in a bubble of sorts, we’re living in a bubble — our bubbles are completely opposite, but they’re, yeah it’s interesting,” Perry said.
The pop star went on to say that “motherhood” has been “the best decision I’ve ever made in my entire life.” Perry and Orlando Bloom welcomed their daughter, Daisy, in August 2020.
After having a child, Perry realized that “stuff that you thought was important was really never important. Your family really starts to become first.”
Still, however, Perry has not abandoned her leftist political campaigning. She joined her fellow celebrities in 2020 to team up with Planned Parenthood for an abortion-themed ad campaign to push voter turnout in battleground states like Florida, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.
Perry is not the only star to move out of Hollywood.
Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek moved himself and his family from Beverly Hills to Texas. The actor, his wife Kimberly, and their five children relocated to the Lone Star state in 2020 after “two late-term pregnancy losses,” him being “prematurely” booted off Dancing With the Stars, and his mom passing away, he said.
“And a shut-down,” Van Der Beek added. “All of that led to some drastic changes in our lives, and dreams, and priorities — and landed us here [in Texas].”
“At the park in Beverly Hills near the house we just moved away from… you were not allowed to fly a KITE,” he added. “Also not allowed at any park in #BeverlyHills Riding a bicycle, climbing a tree, throwing a ball against a cinder-block wall, learning anything from an instructor, using weights, cones or any type of pad, wearing cleats (even rubber ones), and you couldn’t use the batting cage built next to the baseball field — when people ask why we’re moving our kids out of L.A. these are just some of the reasons.”
In 2020, fashion mogul, model, and reality TV star Kat Von D also announced that she was leaving California. She moved to Indiana part-time due to the “tyrannical government overreach” by the Golden State’s Democrat officials.
