DON’T TELL TAIWAN: Psaki Says US ‘Welcomes Stiff Competition’ as China Tests New Weapons

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.20.21

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki surprised millions of Americans this week when she said the United States “welcomes stiff competition” as China tests new types of missiles and weapons.

“Can you comment on reports that China tested a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile to the surprise of US officials?” asked one reporter.

“I can say that generally speaking we made clear our concerns… We’ve been consistent in our approach to China. We welcome stiff competition,” fired-back the Press Secretary.

The Press Secretary has deflected countless questions over the last several days, including fierce criticism after President Biden was seen in a DC restaurant without his facemask.

“There is a mask requirement inside DC restaurants, yet President Biden and the First Lady were not wearing masks,” said Fox News Peter Doocy.

“Of course, there are moments where we all don’t put masks back on as quickly as we should,” she said, adding people should not be “overly focused on moments in time.”

 

Biden was the latest Democrat caught violating local mask mandates over the weekend when he was caught strolling through an elite DC restaurant without covering his face.

One patron caught the moment on camera at the upscale ‘Fiola Mare’ eatery, writing “Dinner with the President!”

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser faced a growing backlash in August after pictures emerged showing the Democrat mask-free at a Washington Wedding hours after imposing indoor masking requirements for all residents.

“Bowser was spotted maskless indoors less than 24 hours after her order reinstating the district’s indoor mask mandate went into effect Saturday morning for everyone over 2 years old, regardless of vaccination status,” reports Fox News.

GOOD QUESTION: Psaki Grilled on Teachers Giving In-Person Instruction to Migrants But Not US Students

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.30.21

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki dodged another question regarding immigration Tuesday; refusing to answer why some teachers in San Diego are giving in-person instruction to child migrants while American students stay home.

“Some public school teachers are providing in-person instruction to migrant children before their own public school students,” said one reporter. “These students have been at home for about a year now.”

“Context is important. These kids are going back to school for hybrid learning — early next month.”

 

Senator Marsha Blackburn ripped the Biden administration’s approach to immigration in a scathing letter this week; blasting the White House’s plan to place migrants in motels at a cost of $280,000 for a family of four.

 

“The Biden administration, earlier this month, awarded ICE an $86.9 million contract through Texas-based nonprofit Endeavors for hotel rooms near the border to provide temporary shelter and processing services for families who have been expelled from the United States but have been placed in immigration proceedings for their removal,” reports Fox News.

 

“This raises questions if half of the $86.9 million in ICE contract proceeds will likewise be allocated toward employee and executive compensation instead of migrant services or housing,” Blackburn wrote.

“As the current contract stands, the cost to taxpayers for housing 1,200 migrant families for six months is about $71,000 per person,” Blackburn wrote. “For a family of four, that amounts to a shocking $284,000 — enough to buy a small house.”

 

The Biden administration is reportedly preparing a $1 trillion tax hike to help finance the White House’s latest policy push including immigration, CoVID, infrastructure, climate change, and income inequality.

“When President Joe Biden’s team began putting together his infrastructure and jobs package this February, the White House National Economic Council circulated an internal proposal calling for about $3 trillion in new spending and $1 trillion in new tax hikes, according to three people with knowledge of the matter,” reports the San Diego Union Tribune.

“The choice to limit the impact on the federal deficit may help the White House counter critics who say that the nation’s spending imbalance is out of control. But it also sets up the administration for an enormous political challenge in convincing Congress to pass a package of tax increases on wealthy Americans and companies that together would represent the largest tax hike in generations,” adds the newspaper.

Biden is poised to unveil another $3 trillion in new federal spending this week to focus on Infrastructure; allocating the cash to help rebuild roads but also fight “climate change and income inequality.”

“The president is expected to introduce up to $3 trillion in spending on efforts to boost the economy, including rebuilding aging infrastructure like highways, bridges and rail lines, and investing in technologies to reduce planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions,” reports CNBC.

“The package may be split between two bills, starting with legislation that incorporates Biden’s Build Back Better agenda and supports his goal to achieve carbon-free power generation by 2035 and net-zero emissions by 2050,” adds the website.

“Electrifying America’s cars and trucks, creating a nationwide smart grid, expanding electricity storage to allow more renewable energy, establishing universal high speed internet — all of these are intended to boost the productivity and competitiveness of the economy, while also cutting emissions,” said one advisor.

“We cannot just settle for what we can agree on without recognizing that this has to be a bill for the future, that we have to recognize the climate crisis,” Nancy Pelosi told reporters.

WATCH: Psaki Dodges Questions About Biden’s Mental State After Terrorists Kill 13 US Troops

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.27.21

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked by reporters to comment on the President’s mental state this week; saying he was “somber” and “outraged” after terrorists killed at least 13 service members in Afghanistan.

“How is he? How is his mood? How is he dealing with all the incoming information, how was he in asking the questions to military commanders?” asked one reporter.

“Putting the lives of service men and women at risk, those decisions that you have to make way heavily on him. Any day when you lose service members may be the worst day of your presidency,” said Psaki.

“He was somber, as he said, outraged at these terrorists taking the lives of service members,” she added.

An image of President Biden hunched at his podium went viral on social media Thursday after the Commander-in-Chief spoke with reporters following the terror blast.

“Do you bear any responsibility for the way that things have unfolded in the last two weeks?” asked Fox News’ Peter Doocy.

“I bear responsibility, fundamentally, for all that’s happened… You know as well as I do that a former president made a deal with the Taliban that he would get all American forced out of Afghanistan by May 1…” said Biden.
