Karine Jean-Pierre, an anti-Israel radical who praised Democrats for skipping the 2019 AIPAC Policy Conference, has been named principal deputy press secretary in the White House for the incoming Joe Biden administration, the Biden transition team announced Sunday.
Jean-Pierre was previously a senior adviser and chief-of-staff to Kamala Harris.
Jean-Pierre is known to be a vocal critic of Israel. She has worked as a senior adviser and national spokesperson for MoveOn.org, a far-Left anti-Israel group, she has accused Israel of committing “war crimes” and applauded Democrats for not attending the AIPAC annual conference. She praised the democrats for “boldly choosing to prioritize diplomacy and human rights over the power of a lobbying organization.”
Jean-Pierre wrote an article in Newsweek about why she thought the democratic candidates “made the right call” by not attending the AIPAC conference.
“Because when it comes down to it, AIPAC’s policies are not progressive policies. AIPAC’s values are not progressive values,” she wrote.
Jean-Pierre accused AIPAC of “severely racist, Islamophobic rhetoric,” and said the organization has become known for “trafficking in anti-Muslim and anti-Arab rhetoric while lifting up Islamophobic voices and attitudes.”
The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) said in a statement, “Ms. Jean-Pierre is a radical Israel-hater and former spokesperson and senior advisor for the radical Soros-funded MoveOn.org.”
“Ms. Jean-Pierre is thus advancing the sickening, dangerous, Orwellian “cancel destruction culture” that falsely condemns and seeks to ostracize pro-Israel groups, even left-leaning ones, as “Islamophobic,” “against human rights,” and unfit to meet with,” ZOA said in the statement.
Last week, Reema Dodin was announced as a deputy director of the White House Office of Legislative Affairs for the incoming Biden administration. She has referred to Palestinian suicide bombings as “the last resort of a desperate people” during the Second Intifada in 2002.
President-elect Joe Biden made a promise to “be a president for all Americans—whether you voted for me or not.”
His promise to be a president for all Americans is not proving to be true for the Jewish community in America.

DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence
In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”
Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.
“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.
The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
