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.

Filming for Alec Baldwin’s Western Movie Ends After He Misfires Prop Gun Killing Director of Photography

Alec Baldwin

On the set filming the Western movie “Rust” actor Alec Baldwin accidentally discharged a prop firearm, killing the director of photography and injuring the film’s director. The 42-year-old woman, Halyna Hutchins, was airlifted to the University of New Mexico hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The director and second victim is 48-year-old Joel Souza who is receiving emergency care at Christus St. Vincent Medical Center. Production for the film, which Baldwin stars in and produces, has been put on hold.

The sheriff’s office of Santa Fe County, New Mexico, released a statement saying the shots were fired by a prop firearm that was discharged by Baldwin. The investigation is ongoing and authorities say no charges have been filed yet in this incident.

NPR reports detectives are continuing to interview witnesses and that “a spokesperson for Baldwin” said only that there was an accident on the set involving the misfire of a prop gun with blanks.

Local paper The Santa Few New Mexican reported Baldwin was seen Thursday outside the sheriff’s office in tears, but they were unable to get a comment from him.

NPR reports:

Deputies responded about 2 p.m. to the movie set at the Bonanza Creek Ranch after 911 calls came in of a person being shot on set, Rios said.

Filming for “Rust” was set to continue into early November, according to a news release from the New Mexico Film Office.

The movie is about a 13-year-old boy who is left to fend for himself and his younger brother following the death of their parents in 1880s Kansas, according to the Internet Movie Database website.

The teen goes on the run with his long-estranged grandfather (played by Baldwin) after the boy is sentenced to hang for the accidental killing of a local rancher.

Got Lunch? Navy Nuclear Engineer Attempted to Hide Classified Docs in Peanut Butter Sandwich

One of the Navy’s nuclear engineers “with access to military secrets has been charged with trying to pass information about the design of American nuclear-powered submarines to someone he thought was a representative of a foreign government who turned out to be an undercover FBI agent, the Justice Department said Sunday” reports the Associated Press.

A criminal complaint has been filed against Jonathan Toebbe, 42, who was arrested with his wife, Diana, 45, in West Virginia. The Justice Department says Toebbe placed a removable memory card at a prearranged “dead drop”.

“The FBI recovered a blue memory card wrapped in plastic and placed between two slices of bread on a half of a peanut butter sandwich, court documents say. The records on the memory card included design elements and performance characteristics of Virginia-class submarine reactors” reports the AP.

Toebbe faces espionage-related charges for trying to sell government secrets to a contact he believed represented a foreign power for almost an entire year. The Navy declined to comment Sunday, and “the FBI says the scheme began in April 2020 when Jonathan Toebbe sent a package of Navy documents to a foreign government and wrote that he was interested in selling to that country operations manuals, performance reports and other sensitive information.”

Authorities say the FBI used Toebbe’s outreach to begin the almost yearlong operation. An undercover agent emailed with Toebbe for weeks and eventually sent him about $10,000 in cryptocurrency as a sign of good faith and trust.

Toebbe’s package had a return address in Pittsburgh and “Was obtained by the FBI last December through its legal attaché office in the unspecified foreign country” reports the AP. “The court documents don’ explain how the FBI came to receive the package or from whom.”

The package also included a letter that said, “I apologize for this poor translation into your language. Please forward this letter to your military intelligence agency. I believe this information will be of great value to your nation. This is not a hoax.”

Only weeks later, agents watched Toebbe make the drop at an agreed-upon location in West Virginia, “with Diana Toebbe appearing to serve as a lookout for her husband during a dead-drop operation for which the FBI paid $20,000.”

The Associated Press reports:

The Justice Department describes those submarines as “cruise missile fast-attack submarines, which incorporate the latest in stealth, intelligence gathering, and weapons systems technology.” The memory card also included a typed message that said, in part: “I hope your experts are very happy with the sample provided and I understand the importance of a small exchange to grow our trust.”

The FBI conducted similar dead-drop exchanges over the next several months, including one in August in eastern Virginia for which Toebbe was paid roughly $70,000. In that instance, prosecutors say, he concealed in a chewing gum package a memory card that contained schematic designs for the Virginia-class submarine.
