Doocy Stuns Psaki With Line Of Questioning She Wasn’t Expecting

Published

on

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about President Biden’s support of the Texas Democrats who fled Texas to block the vote on election security legislation.

“About voting rights and these Texas lawmakers who have come to Washington,” Doocy began, “do you know… of any examples from his 36 years in the Senate that Joe Biden just hopped on a train and left town to avoid a vote that he knew he was going to lose?”

Thinking it was funny, Psaki laughed, and said, “Welcome back.”

“Look,” she continued. “I think that the president’s view is that these Texas legislators were making a statement through action in opposition to efforts in their state to oppose restrictions on people’s fundamental rights and their rights to vote in their state.”

“That is why they departed. The vice president met with these legislators yesterday and the vice pres — and the president, I should say — certainly applauds their actions and their outspoken opposition to efforts to put in place restrictive measures in their state,” she added.
Doocy responded, “And maybe it is funny to think about it that way, but the president is talking about this as the most serious assault on our democracy —”

“I don’t think anything about this is funny,” Psaki said as she held back laughter. “I think what is important to note, though, here is that there are 28 states, including Texas, where there are laws in place or in the process to make it harder to vote and it requires bold action. It requires bold voices to speak out against that and make sure people understand their rights.”

“That’s exactly what’s happening here,” she said.

In Texas, where Democrat former President Lyndon B. Johnson won his 1948 Senate race by stealing the election through voter fraud, there were two bills to be voted on that would expand early voting hours while also putting in place restrictions to prevent voter fraud.  To block the ability for these bills to be voted on, Texas Democrat lawmakers hopped on private jets and left the state.

“Private planes carrying more than 50 Democrats left Austin for Dulles International Airport midafternoon, skipping town just days before the Texas House of Representatives was expected to give early approval to sweeping new voting restrictions in a special legislative session,” The Associated Press reported. “The numbers meant the House would not have enough lawmakers in attendance to conduct business and could not, at least for now, vote on the bill.”

    Maybe they should not get involved in something that they don’t live with. Until they become a Texan, stay out of it. And clean up their own messes first.

    Dems say laws make it harder to vote. What they mean is, they make it harder to CHEAT! Democrats, especially after their demonstration of the Biden Cabal, can NEVER win an election based on ideology! It’s an ideology that’s toxic to everyone…except party leaders. People don’t voluntarily submit to top-down slavery! Avenues to CHEAT must be available, if the Marxist plan is to be realized.

    I cannot believe that people do not understand what this administration along with these 50 democrats from Texas are really trying to do. How can anyone be that blind? Texas is wanting to secure the legal voter, not have thousands of unregistered voters casting their presidential vote when they’re not even legal. That’s insane to think they have a right to vote. Become a US citizen or go back where you came from.

National Gas Prices Could Hit $6.20 Per Gallon By August

Gas Prices

National gas prices could surge to well over $6 per gallon by the end of the summer, according to analysts at JPMorgan.

Natasha Kaneva, head of global oil and commodities research at JPMorgan, wrote in a research document that the United States was going to face a “cruel summer” as gas prices are expected to dwarf their already record highs.

“With expectations of strong driving demand — traditionally, the U.S. summer driving season starts on Memorial Day, which lands this year on May 30, and lasts until Labor Day in early September — U.S. retail price could surge another 37% by August to a $6.20/gallon national average,” she wrote.

“Typically, refiners produce more gasoline ahead of the summer road-trip season, building up inventories,” the analysts said. However, over the last month, “gasoline inventories have fallen counter seasonally and today sit at the lowest seasonal levels since 2019.”

The report comes the same week that the United States set a new record for gas prices with the average cost per gallon rising over $4 per gallon in all 50 states for the first time ever, according to a report from the American Automobile Association (AAA).

“The high cost of oil, the key ingredient in gasoline, is driving these high pump prices for consumers,” said AAA spokesperson Andrew Gross. “Even the annual seasonal demand dip for gasoline during the lull between spring break and Memorial Day, which would normally help lower prices, is having no effect this year.”

As explained in the report, “total domestic gasoline stocks decreased by 3.6 million bbl to 225 million bbl last week. Gasoline demand also decreased slightly from 8.86 million b/d to 8.7 million b/d. Typically, lower demand would put downward pressure on pump prices. However, crude prices remain volatile, and as they surge, pump prices follow suit. Pump prices will likely face upward pressure as oil prices stay above $105 per barrel.”

Pro-Abortion Extremists Threaten To Burn Down Supreme Court, Murder Justices, DHS Memo Reveals

Published

on

Pro-abortion extremists are reportedly threatening to burn down the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their clerks following the leak of a draft of the Supreme Court’s majority opinion intending to overturn Roe v. Wade.

According to a May 13 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo obtained by Axios, the “U.S. government is bracing for a potential surge in political violence once the Supreme Court hands down the ruling that’s expected to overturn Roe v. Wade… Law enforcement agencies are investigating social-media threats to burn down or storm the Supreme Court building and murder justices and their clerks, as well as attacks targeting places of worship and abortion clinics.”

The memo says the threats “are likely to persist and may increase leading up to and following the issuing of the Court’s official ruling.”

However, the memo notes that the “mere advocacy of political or social positions, political activism, use of strong rhetoric, or generalized philosophic embrace of violent tactics does not constitute domestic violent extremism or illegal activity and is constitutionally protected.”

A DHS spokesperson told Axios that the department “is committed to protecting Americans’ freedom of speech and other civil rights and civil liberties, including the right to peacefully protest.”

“[The] DHS is also committed to working with our partners across every level of government and the private sector to share timely information and intelligence, prevent all forms of violence, and to support law enforcement efforts to keep our communities safe,” the spokesperson added.

Earlier this month, a draft of a Supreme Court’s majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked to Politico.

In the draft, Justice Samuel Alito writes that “Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely—the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”

Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Alito added. “Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and de
