White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced she will be leaving her position vouching for President Biden at the daily briefings and moving over to an on-air role at MSNBC. Unfortunately, her replacement is not only a spouse of a CNN host, but she is known to be anti-Israel.
Karine Jean-Pierre will be the first black woman as well as openly gay individual to serve in the role. Jean-Pierre is married to CNN correspondent Suzanne Malveaux, which, rightly so, is raising potential ethical concerns.
However, in addition to saying goodbye to the last ounce of fairness in the press this administration may have had, Jean-Pierre is a “veteran anti-Israel activist.” Jean-Pierre has “been open about her animosity towards the Jewish state” reports the Washington Free Beacon.
She once served as senior adviser and national spokeswoman for the extremely progressive group MoveOn.Org, a far-left anti-Israel group known for supporting boycotts of the Jewish state.
Washington Free Beacon writes:
Jean-Pierre’s anti-Israel past—which includes a stint as senior adviser and national spokeswoman for MoveOn.org, a far-left anti-Israel group that advocates for boycotts of the Jewish state—is raising red flags in the pro-Israel community. The selection of an Israel critic is also likely to further strain ties with the pro-Israel community and Israeli government, which already is strongly opposed to the Biden administration’s efforts to ink a new nuclear deal with Iran.
Jean-Pierre has been open about her animosity towards the Jewish state. She has accused Israel of committing “war crimes” and has backed efforts to boycott the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the United States’ most prominent pro-Israel lobbying shop, cheering Democrats in 2019 for boycotting the group’s annual gathering in Washington, D.C., for “boldly [chose] to prioritize diplomacy and human rights over the power of a lobbying organization.”
AIPAC, she claimed, helped the Trump administration “sabotage” the Iran nuclear deal and also “supported the group that’s credited with inspiring President Trump to enact the Muslim Ban and has been known to spread anti-Muslim racism.” She accused the group without evidence of trafficking in “severely racist, Islamophobic rhetoric.”
Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House
Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.
Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.
Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.
National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.
In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.
Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
