White House Communications
During the Afghan crisis, French President Emmanuel Macron and Biden spoke by phone. Macron emphasised ensuring the safe evacuation of Afghan citizens who assisted American and European troops over the past 20 years at great risk to themselves and their families. Macron described the mission to evacuate allies as a “moral responsibility” and told Biden: “We cannot abandon them.” The White House version of the phone call, however, made no mention of a “moral responsibility” to evacuate Afghan allies.
Junta chief propagandist Jen Psaki posed with a hat bearing the Hammer and Sickle of the Soviet regime during a meeting between John Kerry and Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov. In much of the world the Hammer and Sickle evokes a similar, if not the same, response as the wearing of the swastika. More than 100 million human beings perished under the hammer and sickle. Award-winning writer Gabriella Hoffman of Townhall.com remarked,
|"You wore a hat emblazoned with a hate symbol and smiled for pictures with Russian dignitaries while working for the administration that gave the Kremlin more flexibility.|
In the photo, Lavrov has his arm around Psaki. Lavrov was said by Democrat and fake news media outlets to have carried a message from Vladimir Putin to Donald Trump to fire FBI director James Comey. Impeachment sham whistleblower Eric Ciaramella is said to have started the rumor.
Biden hired Bernie Sanders former press secretary Symone Sanders, an African American for the 2020 campaign; however Psaki's white privilege beat out Sanders for White House press secretary after she asked as a reporter on the campaign trail what Biden's favorite ice cream flavor was, receiving full-blown mainstream media headline coverage. Sanders earlier griped to CNN,
|"we don’t need white people leading the Democratic Party right now. The Democratic Party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in our leadership and throughout the staff at the highest levels."|
During the Fall of Kabul, the Daily Caller compared the jobs of the White House communications staff to "scrubbing down port-a-potties or scraping roadkill off the highway." Director of Communications Kate Bedingfield argued that Biden “never shied away from taking questions.” Biden said later that day that no American citizens had been kept from Kabul airport if they were attempting to board a plane and evacuate. Defense minister Lloyd Austin admitted that was not true. CNN’s Clarissa Ward also confirmed that getting out was not easy or safe for American citizens.
Biden also claimed that al-Qaeda was “gone” from Afghanistan, a claimed that was contradicted immediately by the Pentagon. A short time later, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby told Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin that U.S. officials were aware that both al-Qaeda and ISIS have a presence in Afghanistan.
Biden also claimed he had not heard any negative comments or criticisms from allies concerning the withdrawal of American troops. But the whole UK Parliament voted to hold Biden in contempt. Former Prime Minister Tony Blair, who often holds his tongue, spoke out about the “imbecilic” manner in which the withdrawal was executed.
Biden told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that American troops would remain in place as long as there were American citizens on the ground in Afghanistan trying to get out. Biden said, "no one's being killed right now." Days later 60 people including 13 American soldiers were killed in a suicide attack. At a press conference following the attack, Biden said he "was instructed to call on" specific reporters for questions. Amid threats from Taliban leadership, Biden said that the U.S. would abide by the Aug. 31 deadline to get troops out of Afghanistan.
According to Politico, when aides want the greenlight on a social media project, Naomi and Finnegan Biden are Biden's go-to digital validators. When Naomi or Finnigan see a video or like a post, it is more valuable than any amount of data proving its effectiveness, according to Democrats familiar with the dynamic. The digital team has given directives based on what Biden’s granddaughters were suggesting, going beyond Biden's normal media go-to’s like New York Times columnists, local television stations, and network and cable news anchors. “Anything digital he does is purely because his granddaughters tell him to,” said a Democrat familiar with the dynamic.
Naomi Biden is followed by 10 White House aides, narrowly edging out Kamala Harris' nepotic fashion industry niece Meena Harris with eight. Meena, however, got the crucial @WHCOS follow from chief-of-staff Ron Klain while Naomi did not.
Anita Dunn and SKDKnickerbocker

Senior Advisor to Joe Biden Anita Dunn is a co-founder of SKDKnickerbocker (SKDK), a communications and political consulting firm. Dunn is the former Obama White House Director of Communications.
Then in January 2020 Reade tried to come forward again. This time she contacted Times Up Now, the sexual harassment organization. Ryan Grim at The Intercept reported the organization said they couldn't help her because Joe Biden was a candidate for federal office and supporting a case against him could jeopardize their nonprofit status. They also pointed out that the public relations firm that works on behalf of the Times Up Now Legal Defense Fund is SKD Knickerbocker, and SKDKnickerbocker managing director is the notorious Maoist and liberal apologist for mass murder, Anita Dunn. Dunn is the top adviser to Joe Biden.
In other words, Times Up Now, an alleged women's support group, and Anita Dunn will take political dirt on their enemies, and give a heads up to their allies. In the case of Tara Reade, Dunn used Reade to vault herself into Biden's inner orbit and a cushy job in the future Biden administration. It was no surprise when Biden appointed Dunn his chief advisor in January 2020 before the 2020 New Hampshire Democratic primary, since Dunn now had the goods on Biden. Given Biden's mental incapacity questions have surged as to who really is in charge. Anita Dunn, the woman who considers the greatest mass murderer the planet has ever known as her "favorite philosopher', appears to hold that trusted position.
California’s Office of Election Cybersecurity surveilled social media users and asked Facebook, Twitter, and Google to remove or flag social media postings as "misleading" election news content. SKDKnickerbocker was also involved. The company shared its “Misinformation Daily Briefings” with the California Secretary of State office, who then passed them on to the Big Tech social media giants in a conspiracy against the First Amendment rights of Americans.

As a vital element in the Biden junta propaganda apparatus, during the Rape of Afghanistan Politico solicited tweets from readers for chief-of-staff Ron Klain to reweet in an effort to clamp down on the calamitous situation. "If you want to say something supportive about Biden’s handling of Afghanistan, there’s a decent chance the White House chief of staff will retweet it. Klain’s feed the past several days has been stuffed with the likes of AARON RUPAR, JOHN HARWOOD, and JENNIFER RUBIN."
Politico even directed readers to:
- "WHAT THE WHITE HOUSE WANTS YOU TO READ: Chief of staff RON KLAIN and deputy press secretary CHRIS MEAGHER pushed out this NBC Washington story...", and
- "WHAT THE WHITE HOUSE DOESN’T WANT YOU TO READ: This Guardian story about the Taliban’s heavy presence at Kabul airport where “in desperate scenes, babies were passed to U.S. soldiers in the hope of giving them a life outside the country.” And this New York Times story about the dangerous road thousands of people face trying to get to the airport. “There were volleys of rifle fire, along with pushing, pulling and beating with wooden sticks, Kalashnikovs and hoses,” the Times reports. Or this Reuters story about all the American military equipment now in the Taliban’s hands. “Video showed the advancing insurgents inspecting long lines of vehicles and opening crates of new firearms, communications gear and even military drones."
While trying to put the best face on the disasters and lies emanating from the White House, Klain attempted to dunk on CNN reporter Clarissa Ward, who was on the ground, at the airport in the midst of the catastrophic events. Ward tweeted, "I'm sitting here for 12 hours in the airport, 8 hours on the airfield and I haven't seen a single US plane take off. How on Earth are you going to evacuate 50,000 people in the next two weeks? It just, it can’t happen.” Klain responded, “We evacuated 5700 people in the past 24 hours. The best military operation in the world is in charge.” The response to Klain's mansplaining to a woman in the midst of combat zone was swift and brutal.
The Biden regime built a mock-up of the Oval Office in the Old Executive Office Building across the street from the White House for televised events and video conferencing. Senior Advisor to President Trump offered this explanation: “The reason Biden uses this bizarre virtual set for televised meetings — and not an actual room like East Room, Cabinet, Oval, Roosevelt, Sit Room, etc. — is because it allows him to read a script directly from a face-on monitor (& w/out teleprompter glass that can be seen on camera).
Kamala Harris use of child actors
As Kamala Harris' approval ratings tanked, she hired a staff of image consultants to do a makeover. Their first video which was targeted at children employed child actors in a celebration of scientism. In the video, Kamala, who has no children of her own, spoke to the group of teenagers as if they were elementary schoolcholdren.
A study from the Media Research Center showed that Twitter and Facebook censored President Donald Trump and the president’s affiliated campaign accounts at least 65 times in 2019 and 2020, while leaving Biden untouched.
The Biden family has a long relationship with Facebook dating back to 2010, and the ability to get critics banned. There also has been a revolving door of employees between the Obama and Biden regimes, campaign organizations, consultants, and Biden family enterprises.
Early roots of relationship
- See also: Vice Presidency of Joe Biden (2009–2017)
On October 10, 2010, Hunter Biden emailed Arlene Busch, a partner at Rosemont Seneca, the firm set up to sell access and influence to Vice President Joe Biden. The subject of the email was his relationship with Chris Kelly, Mark Zuckerberg's right-hand-man.
|"I brought Chris Kelly to lunch. We can talk in more detail tomorrow about the meeting, but just to be clear– Chris is worth about $350 MILLION. He remains Mark Zuckerberg’s closest adviser and was the first person outside of programers Facebook hired.
He is more tied to Silicon Valley money than anyone I know and is looking for places to put his money. H[e] just spent $10 MILLION of his own money on race for AG in Dem primary without blinking.”
Kelly just dumped $10 million of his own money in a failed primary contest against Kamala Harris for Attorney General of California. Days later, a Kelly flunky emailed Hunter asking what favor he could do. Hunter wanted a critic's account on Facebook taken down.
|“Hi Mr. Biden, Chris Kelly forwarded me your message about a Facebook profile that you’re trying to get shut down?”
To which Hunter Biden replied:
“Thanks Adam—I will get info to you ASAP.”
Adam replied, saying, “Thank you”.
Two days later the Facebook flunky confirmed the hit against a third party had been carried out.
We have removed the fake profile. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
In 2012 Eric Schwerin, who formally headed up the partnership with Chinese Communists, devised a scheme to milk money out of Facebook and other Silicon Valley Democrats for then Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden:
|“Does it make sense to reach out to Chris Kelly (maybe in an email from Hunter) and ask him to suggest a number of Silicon Valley Dem Types that we should invite to Beau’s party? I am sure he would encourage them to come and giving him some ownership of that group might not be a bad idea.
Hunter Biden replied to this email saying, “Very good idea”.
Schwerin replied, saying, :
“Great. I’ll draft an email and send it from Hunter. Hunter, if you want to see it first, let me know. Otherwise, we’ll send it off tomorrow.”

Shortly after Hunter got on the payroll of Burisma, Secretary of State John Kerry's chief-of-staff gave Eric Schwerin a heads up that Wall Street Journal reporters were poking around in the deal:
|“FYI, at David Wade’s urging I spoke to the WSJ [Wall Street Journal] on background tonight. They were about to run with a story that said Rosemont Seneca had invested in Burisma. Told them that was not the case. Didn’t say much else. Not sure what else they were going with but they were apparently asking questions about ownership as well. Probably going to run tonight. Didn’t seem too concerning to me.”|
David Wade at the time was John Kerry's chief-of-staff. Wade previously was Joe Biden press secretary during the 2008 presidential campaign. In 2017 Wade became a PR consultant for Rosemont Seneca and Hunter Biden to handle all the negative publicity regarding Joe and Hunter Biden raking off $166,000 per month in kickbacks from Burisma. In the 2020 election cycle Wade went to work for Facebook.
The same day as the Schwerin email about Wade and the Wall Street Journal, other members of the Washington press corp were probing the issue of the Biden family's conflict of interest and influence peddling, as well. At the State Department, junior propagandist Jen Psaki was asked by Matt Lee of the Associated Press:
Lee: “Does this building diplomatically have any concerns about potential perceptions of conflict or cronyism – which is what you’ve often accused the Russians of doing?”
Paski: “No, he’s a private citizen."
Censorship of New York Post
On October 14, 2020, three weeks before the 2020 presidential election, Twitter and Facebook locked the account of the New York Post and limited their ability to share and post news stories after the New York Post published a bombshell report detailing some of Hunter Biden’s emails proving that Hunter Biden introduced his father, Joe Biden, to a top Ukranian energy firm executive from Burisma while Joe Biden was vice president. This was evidence Joe Biden used his influence as vice president to enrich his family through lucrative business deals with foreign nations like Ukraine and China, compromising the integrity of the vice presidency, as well as US national security. Facebook’s Policy Communication’s Director Andy Stone said,
|“While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want to be clear that this story is eligible to be fact-checked by Facebook’s third-party fact-checking partners. This is part our standard process to reduce the spread of misinformation. We temporarily reduce distribution pending fact-checker review.”|
Before working for Facebook, Andy Stone worked for the Democrat’s House Majority PAC as well at the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), which is a clear conflict of interest during an election year. Facebook and their executives made the pre-emptive decision to label the New York Post‘s Hunter Biden story as factually incorrect and limited the publishing ability of the New York Post’s account before they even “fact checked” the already factually correct article.
Facebook kill switch
Facebook banned new political ads in the week before the 2020 Presidential election, curtailing a highly effective conduit for raising last-minute money and pinpointing messages to voters.
The mammoth social network with 2.7 billion users worldwide has become an essential tool for political advertisers — raking in more than $100 million from the presidential campaigns of Donald Trump and Joe Biden alone. Unlike TV or print media, Facebook allows campaigns to rapidly respond to events, sometimes in a day or less.
|"The last week of the election is the most important week when it comes to messaging," said Tara McGowan, co-founder of digital-first Democratic outfit ACRONYM, adding that "most voters in this country do not tune in and start paying attention or making their plans to vote until the final days of an election."|
By October 29, Facebook had already rejected 2.2 million ads and blocked 120,000 posts citing "election misinformation." While mainstream fake news media are allowed to churn baseless scandals and smears in an October Surprise, President Trump would be restricted from responding.
In August 2020 it was reported that Facebook was planning for the possibility that President Trump or his campaign could try to challenge mail in ballot election results. The New York Times reported that staffers were already putting together contingency plans in the event Trump tries to use Facebook to dispute the vote by declaring the U.S. Postal Service lost mail-in ballots or that other groups interfered with the vote. Facebook officials, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg, were holding daily meetings to discuss how to minimize the platform from being used to cast doubts on the results. The Times noted that one plan would include a “kill switch” to shut down political ads after Election Day. The company officials believe the ads, which Facebook does not check for truthfulness, could be used to disseminate misinformation.
Anna Makanju is the Facebook executive in charge of “election integrity on the platform”; previously, she was the special policy adviser for Europe and Eurasia, which includes Ukraine, to former US Vice President Joe Biden. The Facebook executive who blocked all of the negative evidence of Hunter and Joe Biden’s corrupt activity in Biden-Burisma scandal is the same person who was coordinating the corrupt activity between the Biden family payoffs and Ukraine.

Anthony Fauci and Ralph Baric
The Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL) is a group organized by Obama operatives and funded by Zuckerberg to promote Democrat election fraud. Zuckerberg funneled more than $400 million in election fraud efforts, $350 million was siphoned through the Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL),
CTCL distributed hundreds of millions in “Zuckerbucks” to thousands of election jurisdictions in 48 states and Washington, D.C.. These funds were pitched as “COVID-19 response grants” supposedly intended to assist election officials in the safe conduct of elections. However, the infusion of CTCL funds into Democrat-leaning jurisdictions influenced the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. Much of the Zuckerbucks were not spent on COVID-19 related expenses—with states reporting expenditures on advertising, vehicle purchases, registering teenagers to vote, and other non- COVID-related items.
Zuckerberg money to CTCL was laundered through the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) controlled by Zuckerberg and his wife. Chan Zuckerberg also gave $433,000 to Ralph Baric, who was described by Shi Zhengli of the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) as her “longtime collaborator” on gain-of-function research on the bat coronavirus. Baric also received funding from Anthony Fauci's National Institute of Health (NIH). Fauci admitted that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg offered Fauci “resources and money” at the time same Zuckerberg was plowing cash into interfering in the 2020 presidential election on behalf of Democrats.
Censorship of Gold Star families
- See also: Fall of Kabul
The mother of fallen U.S. Marine Kareem Nikoui had both her Facebook and Instagram and accounts censored after posts that were critical of Joe Biden, who botched the 2021 Afghan withdrawal leading to the unnecessary death of her son. Nikoui, 20, was one of the 13 U.S. Marines killed in the Kabul airport suicide attack. The Gold Star mother wrote, “After I lay my son to rest you will be seeing me again! Remember I am the one who stood five inches from your face and was letting you know I would never get to hug my son again, hear his laugh and then you tried to interrupt me and give me your own sob story. You are no leader of any kind! You are a weak human being and a traitor.” The grieving mother revealed that Instagram had censored her post. Her posts were also censored by Facebook, which owns Instagram. “As soon as I posted about what happened to my son Instagram started pulling up my posts from months ago and sending me notifications that if I kept posting stuff like this that they would disable my account. Posts from months ago!”
Kareem's father, Steve Nikoui, told the Daily Beast that he wants to “respect the office” of the president, but doesn’t have much love for Joe Biden. “They sent my son over there as a paper pusher and then had the Taliban outside providing security. I blame my own military leaders… Biden turned his back on him. That’s it.” A particularly memorable part of Biden's occupation of the office has been the image of him turning his back as he leaves the room after delivering remarks on Afghanistan, after showing up late. Often times it's without even taking questions from the press. Even when he has taken questions, he was no more comforting or coherent. Biden raised eyebrows when he casually said out loud "they gave me a list here" and that whoever "they" were, had "instructed" him on who he should call on, and in what order. Those comments were published in the official White House transcript.
During Biden's alleged inaugural address, the White House YouTube feed had more than 5 times dislikes than likes. YouTube intervened to re-jigger the numbers. A website that tracks the YouTube page of the Biden White House confirmed that YouTube suppressed the dislikes on every single one of Joe Biden White House videos. YouTube suppressed dislikes of Biden by as much as 600% on some videos.
Twitter’s corrupt senior executives and other employees have a long history of anti-Trump hatred, a New York Post review of dozens of accounts of top employees found. The venom, vitriol and, in some cases, vows to help Joe Biden win the 2020 presidential election while said employees behave like emotionally-stunted preschool children online, enabled and encouraged by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey himself.
“GET HIM OUT,” posted a senior site reliability engineer on August 18, 2020 “What a f–king baboon.” One manager with nine years on the job said he was quite keen to watch Biden “crush [Trump] in the election” and that he hoped the president would “be utterly humiliated while also suffering greatly from #COVID19.” He vulgarly and immaturely calls Trump “a f–king idiot” and the voters who elected him — “hysterically f–king stupid people.” Others publicly wish the President harm. One Twitter engineering manager, displaying his own childishness, said Trump should “die in a fire” in a January 2017 tweet. A year later, he rang in the new year by falsely claiming “Happy 2018! Donald Trump is dead!”
None of these comments were ever been flagged by Twitter or been subject to any other form of official sanction, even as the social-media giant unjustly dishes out discipline to others for sharing legitimate news stories about Joe Biden. After a fly landed on Vice President Mike Pence’s head during his debate with Sen. Kamala Harris, the Twitter vice president noted crudely that flies are “drawn to sh-t.”
Research showed that 70% of all Biden Twitter followers were fake accounts.
New York Post expose
Twitter justified blocking the New York Post's scoop on the Biden Burisma scandal claiming it violated Twitter's "Hacked Material Policy." The policy “prohibits the use of our service to distribute content obtained without authorization” because, they said, they “don’t want to incentivize hacking by allowing Twitter to be used as distribution for possibly illegally obtained materials.” That standard would result in the banning from the platform the Pentagon Papers which ultimately toppled Richard Nixon, the Snowden reporting, the Panama Papers, the DNC and Podesta emails that exposed corruption and forced the 2016 resignation of the top five officials of the Democratic National Committee, and President Trump's tax returns.
Twitter banned people who posted The New York Post expose on the Biden-Burisma scandal, including Trump White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing the article, locked the Trump Campaign account less than 3 weeks before the 2020 Presidential election. Rep. Jim Jordan posted the Biden-Burisma story on a federal government website after which Twitter proceeded to censor the House Judiciary GOP. Wikipedia editors censored the Hunter Biden bombshell, and called the New York Post an ‘unreliable’ source. Google also was reported to be meddling in U.S. Senate elections. The Senate Judiciary Committee announced that Jack Dorsey would be subpoenaed to explain the meddling. Former James Comey general counsel James A. Baker (DOJ), who was complicit in the Obamagate and FISA abuse scandals, is Twitter's lead counsel. The RNC made a formal complaint to the Federal Elections Commission which reads in part,
"Respondent’s feud with President Trump is well known, as are its frequent efforts to censor the President’s tweets and the “shadow banning” of prominent Republicans, including RNC’s Chair, Ronna McDaniel, and several Republican Members of Congress. Respondent’s CEO, Jack Dorsey, and other senior executives are prolific donors to the Democrat party and other left-wing causes, with 98.7% of the company’s total political contributions going to Democrats. In addition, there appears to be a revolving door between the Biden campaign and the company, with Respondent’s Public Policy Director recently leaving to join the Biden transition team and Senator Kamala Harris’s former Press Secretary now serving as Respondent’s Senior Communications Manager."
Twitter failed to act on a viral message posted on its platform containing a doctored image purporting to be a text message between Rudy Giuliani and Ivanka Trump. The New York Post, Gateway Pundit, and Big League Politics all were placed on Twitter's suspension hit lit the final week before election day.

Even after the Biden-Burisma scandal was exposed, Twitter continued to censor official White House policy experts. On October 18, 2020 Twitter removed a post from White House pandemic task force member Dr. Scott Atlas, accusing him of violating its policy about “misleading information.” A Twitter spokesperson confirmed that the post was removed. According to the spokesperson, the Twitter policy that Atlas allegedly violated prohibits sharing false or misleading content related to the pandemic.
Social media collusion to suppress human rights
Chief propagandist Jen Psaki admitted the junta was working with Facebook to target individual users and suppress their First Amendment rights. The junta requested cell phone service providers to censor private text messages, Psaki articulated the regime's position that advocates banning social media users from all platforms if a user gets banned from one. Psaki's articulation of Biden regime policy essentially makes Big Tech social media platforms "state actors." Journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted,
|"The Biden administration is telling Facebook which posts it regards as "problematic" so that Facebook can remove them. This is the union of corporate and state power -- one of the classic hallmarks of fascism -- that the people who spent 5 years babbling about fascism support. If you don't find it deeply disturbing that the White House is "flagging" internet content that they deem "problematic" to their Facebook allies for removal, then you are definitionally an authoritarian. No other information is needed about you to know that."|
|"We are in regular touch with these social media platforms, and those engagements typically happen through members of our senior staff....We’ve increased disinformation research and tracking within the Surgeon General’s office. We’re flagging problematic posts for Facebook that spread disinformation....it’s important to take faster action against harmful posts. As you all know, information travels quite quickly on social media platforms; sometimes it’s not accurate. And Facebook needs to move more quickly to remove harmful, violative posts — posts that will be within their policies for removal often remain up for days. That’s too long. The information spreads too quickly.
Finally, we have proposed they promote quality information sources in their feed algorithm. Facebook has repeatedly shown that they have the levers to promote quality information. We’ve seen them effectively do this in their algorithm over low-quality information and they’ve chosen not to use it in this case. And that’s certainly an area that would have an impact.

On the 2020 Democrat primaries, CNN manufactured a hit on Bernie Sanders claiming a said, "a woman can never be president" then used it as a debate question a few days later. CNN was again caught flipping poll results for Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders in the early primary state of New Hampshire.
In order to pander and mislead the vital Black female demographic, CNN's April Ryan reported that Stacey Abrams was being interviewed and vetted by the Biden team for Vice President when, in fact, Abrams herself said no call, interview, or vetting process had taken place. Biden later humiliated Abrams on national television.
Marquette Law School in Wisconsin conducted a poll just days prior to the Kenosha riots. In June 2020 the same poll saw strong support for the BLM protests, with a 61%-34% approval over disapproval rate. By August just before the Kenosha riots that support fell to parity at 48%-48%. Those results turned heads at DNC and Biden headquarters. Just as Democrats and the mainstream fake news media they learned of this loss of support as a result of leftist riots, the Kenosha riot broke out at nearly the same moment. At the RNC convention the Marxist elite witnessed Republican messaging that called for support of police and the call to bring law and order back to the cities. Biden, Democrats, the liberal media went into panic mode.
All of a sudden the permissiveness and encouragement to rioters was taken down. CNN and Don Lemon called for a change in tactics. The cheerleaders suddenly began waving for the crowds to disperse, and pleading with Kamala Harris and Joe Biden to adopt the very opposite language that has been labeled as "racist" all summer long. For months anyone calling to curtail violence, destruction, attacks on police, and the threats to communities were deemed intolerant. Only now, when it looked like a bad prospect for the Democrats, did the sophisticates in the mainstream media consider rioting to be condemnable. When it was politically expedient the burning of cities and violence visited on citizens was an acceptable result.
CBS News used a picture from President Trump’s “Latino’s for Trump” event as a manipulative picture to showcase Joe Biden’s Latino outreach effort in Miami. In reality, as with virtually all of his events (including his installation on January 20), the Biden outreach event was sparsely attended.
In a poll of 510 Democrats and 169 Republicans with 235 others following Joe Biden's first SOTU speech, CBS News claimed the speech had an 85% approval rating. The far left "internet’s definitive fact-checking resource," Snopes, labeled the flailing news organization\s alleged journalism as "False."
CBS News reporter Caitlan Hurley-Burns and other "independent" mainstream media journalists accompanied Kamala Harris to a boutique and helped her pick out a rainbow jacket.
|"Rural Afghanistan has been rocked by climate change. The past three decades have brought floods and drought that have destroyed crops and left people hungry. And the Taliban — likely without knowing climate change was the cause — has taken advantage of that pain.
While agriculture is a source of income for more than 60% of Afghans, more than 80% of conflicts in the country are linked to natural resources, according to a joint study by the World Food Programme, the United Nations Environment Program and Afghanistan’s National Environmental Protection Agency.
In 2019, Afghanistan ranked sixth in the world for countries most impacted by climate change, according to the Germanwatch Global Climate Risk Index.
According to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction as reported by the Daily Mail
|"The U.S. spent about $9 billion during the [Afghan] conflict trying to eradicate Afghanistan's fields of poppies that bankrolled the Taliban and made the country's the world's top producer of opium and all its illegal products.
'Despite the investment, the cultivation of opium poppy in Afghanistan has trended upward for two decades, and insecurity has made it difficult to reverse the growth,' said [Inspector General] Sopko in his most recent report.
In one project, U.S. money was used to build irrigation channels for hundreds of square miles of arable land in the hope that it would turn farmers on to legal crops.
ABC News and George Stephanopoulos
Biden told George Stephanopoulos on August 18, 2021 that "one of the things we didn't know is what the Taliban would do in terms of trying to keep people from getting out, what they would do. What are they doing now? They're cooperating, letting American citizens get out, American personnel get out, embassies get out, et cetera....if there's American citizens left, we're gonna stay to get them all out.”
2020 presidential election
Stanley McChrystal and Hawkfish
A new Democratic-aligned political action committee advised by retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the former head of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, is planning to deploy technology originally developed to counter Islamic State propaganda in service of a domestic political goal – to combat online efforts to promote President Donald Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
The group, Defeat Disinfo, will use artificial intelligence and network analysis to map discussion of the president's claims on social media. It will seek to intervene by identifying the most popular counter-narratives and boosting them through a network of more than 3.4 million influencers across the country – in some cases paying users with large followings to take sides against the president.The initiative reflects fears within the Democratic Party that Trump's unwavering digital army may help sustain him through the pandemic, as it has through past controversies...The initiative is run by Curtis Hougland, whose received initial funding for the technology from DARPA, the Pentagon's research arm, as part of an effort to combat extremism overseas. He insists Democrats are ill-prepared for the looming battle over information and attention, which is bound to play an outsize role in November.
McChrystal said his interest in the PAC is about ensuring the accuracy of information leading up to the election, even if it involves chasing viral attention with emotional appeals and other tactics rewarded by online clicks.
Hougland's PAC differs from more traditional Democratic-aligned PACs, such as Priorities USA and American Bridge 21st Century, in embracing the practice of paying influencers to convey their messaging. The approach raised eyebrows and prompted tech companies to clarify their rules when it was put into practice by the Michael Bloomberg 2020 presidential campaign. "I have no trepidation about paying content creators in seeking out and amplifying the best narratives," Hougland said.
Stephanie Berger, a former national finance director for the Democratic National Committee, is raising funds for the initiative, which is an extension of Hougland's technology company, Main Street One. Andrew Tobias, a former DNC treasurer, was an earlier investor in the start-up. Main Street One's leaders were previously involved in cultivating digital narratives in Eastern European Color Revolutions and have now waded into American politics. The organization ran a campaign that paid influencers to boost Kentucky Democrats before the gubernatorial election last fall. A super PAC supporting Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey in his bid for the Democratic nomination paid Main Street One more than $500,000 for similar services in 2019.
Hougland said his aim is to maintain the "largest repository of content against Trump," and to be nimble in boosting organic material that is already performing well, such as videos produced by the Biden campaign.
A similar effort was brought to light after the 2018 Midterm elections, including the creation of fake accounts to sway the 2017 Senate election in Alabama against Roy Moore. Joe Trippi, a Democratic operative who helped manage the 2017 Senate campaign in Alabama, said the president is partially insulated from the fallout over his own remarks by a "media echo chamber that is very disciplined about just picking up whatever the misdirection of the day is and amplifying it." That protective armor makes it all the more critical for Democrats to turn up the volume on anti-Trump messaging, he said.
2020 election results
The Polling Company surveyed 1,750 Biden voters in seven swing states (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), six of which (all but North Carolina) were called for Biden. Voters’ knowledge of eight news stories were tested. A huge majority (82%) of Biden voters were unaware of at least one of these key items, with five percent saying they were unaware of all eight of the issues we tested.
This lack of information proved crucial: One of every six Biden voters surveyed (17%) said they would have abandoned the Democratic candidate had they known the facts about one or more of these news stories. A shift of this magnitude would have changed the outcome in all six of the swing states won by Joe Biden, and Donald Trump would have comfortably won a second term as president. 
The media’s censorship of Biden’s scandals had the strongest impact on this year’s election. According to our survey, more than one-third of Biden voters (35.4%) were unaware of the serious allegations brought against the Democratic nominee by Tara Reade, a former staffer who said Biden sexually assaulted her in the 1990s. If they had known about the allegations, 8.9% said they would have changed their vote — either switching to Trump or a 3rd party candidate, not voting for any presidential candidate, or not voting at all. By itself, this would have flipped all six of the swing states won by Biden (Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), giving the President a win with 311 electoral college votes.
Even more Biden voters (45.1%) said they were unaware of the financial scandal enveloping Biden and his son, Hunter Biden (a story infamously censored by Twitter and Facebook, as well as ignored by the liberal media). According to the poll, full awareness of the Hunter Biden scandal would have led 9.4% of Biden voters to abandon the Democratic candidate, flipping all six of the swing states he won to Trump, giving the President 311 electoral votes.
The ticket’s left-wing ideology was another issue barely mentioned by the national press. A GovTrack analysis found Biden’s running mate, California Senator Kamala Harris, had the most left-wing record of any Senator in 2019 (even more than self-described socialist Bernie Sanders. The poll found that 25.3% of Biden voters said they didn’t know about Senator Harris’s left-wing ideology. If voters had the complete story, it would have led 4.1% of Biden voters to change their vote, flipping Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to Trump. The result would have been a Trump victory, with 295 electoral college votes.
- Summary: Looking at all eight of these issues together, the poll found that a total of 17% of Biden’s voters said they would have changed their vote if they had been aware of one or more of these important stories. This would have moved every one of the swing states into Trump’s column, some by a huge margin. The President would have trounced Biden in the electoral college, 311 to 227.
- In Pennsylvania, 15% of Biden voters said they would have defected. Using the reported vote totals as of noon on November 19, 2020 this would have reduced his total by 518,204 votes, flipping the state to Trump. In Michigan, the percentage who would have left Biden was 14%, deducting 392,966 from his tally and flipping that state, too.
- In Georgia, 15% of Biden’s voters say they would have defected based on full information, taking 370,838 votes out of his column, and putting Trump comfortably ahead. In Arizona, 21% say they would have changed their vote, deducting 351,150 from Biden’s column and putting Trump in front there, too.
- In Wisconsin, Biden would have lost 13% of his voters, taking away 211,987 from his column. In Nevada, the percentage of those who would have left Biden was 18%, or 126,627 voters. Such a shift would have put both of those states in Trump’s column, too.
- In the final state polled, North Carolina, 21% of Biden’s voters say they would have changed their minds, deducting 563,703 votes from his total and significantly bolstering Trump’s margin of victory in that state.
Rape of Afghanistan

On July 8, 2021, Biden said from the White House, "I trust the capacity of the Afghan military, who is better trained, better equipped, and more competent in terms of conducting war," "There's going to be no circumstance where you're going to see people being lifted off the roof of an embassy of the United States from Afghanistan." Less than a month later White House chief propagandists Jen Psaki said "The Taliban has to make an assessment about what they want their role to be in the international community." Her comments came as reports flowed in of Taliban fighters going door-to-door and forcibly selecting girls as young as 12 to reward as brides for the victorious jihadis. Former Obama Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker said, the Islamist group cares less about diplomatic relations than it does about the idea that it has defeated the world’s strongest military, a narrative that will embolden other Islamist militants around the world.
|“We’re going to pay for that for a long time to come, and that’s why it is insane – just idiotic – to think that we can tell the Taliban that if they don’t stop taking over territory and play nice, the international community will withhold recognition and support. The Taliban really doesn’t care, because they’ve got something far more valuable.”
“We have seen this movie before. This would be the Taliban of the 1990s that gave safe haven to al-Qaida, except they’re meaner and tougher than they were then because of what they’ve been through.”
“But even with all of that, I’m afraid a lot of people are going to die. As the Taliban moves into different cities and towns, they’ve got their hit list. So it’s going to be messy, it’s going to be incomplete and more people are going to die, but we’ve got to make our best possible effort.”
“I’m left with some grave questions in my mind about his ability to lead our nation as commander-in-chief.”
Jennifer Cafarella a national security fellow at the Institute for Study of War - a major US think tank - as well as a fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR), based at the Department of War Studies at King's College London; and a visiting fellow at the National Security Institute at the George Mason University in Virginia, tweeted to her colleagues: "It is a very dark day in Afghanistan. Take care of yourself. It might require avoiding the news. We can & should bear witness. But it does not require self harm. Triggering PTSD symptoms or new trauma does not help Afghans." Cafarella followed with a list of suggestions, such as not sharing "images or links to images that are likely to cause trauma" such as the fall of Kabul, Taliban executions of Afghan officials, or anything "Saigon-like" - a reference to the 1975 collapse of the US-backed regime in South Vietnam. Nebojsa Malic, a Serbian-American journalist and translator, wrote:
|"one doesn't get much more emblematic of the transatlantic "national" security establishment, short of being an actual Pentagon employee.
One might argue that she's an exception rather than the rule, but look around. Do you see any self-examination, much less contrition, from anyone involved in the 20-year fiasco that has been Afghanistan? No? Precisely. As the whole house of cards comes down, everyone's looking away.
Thing is, they shouldn't. "Jenny" and her colleagues - the entire "security" establishment that came up with the notion of "humanitarian" wars, nation-building and perpetual war for the "end of history" that only resulted in a re-run of Vietnam - they shouldn't get the luxury of looking away.
For one thing, because that was not an option for the countless people that their clever plans and brilliant ideas got killed, maimed, displaced or driven insane. For another, because if they don't watch in horror at what they wrought, they might - no, scratch that, they will - do it all over again, somewhere else."
Washington Post reporter Ashley Parker read asked Psaki about a quote from Roice McCollum, the sister of Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, who was killed in the regime's hasty and inept Afghan evacuation. An interaction between Biden and the family of Cpl. McCollum ended with all but Roice walking out on the “scripted and shallow” Biden. According to the WaPo article, McCollum’s sister stated that “when it came time to meet with the president, they left the room, because she said they did not want to speak with the man they held responsible for McCollum’s death.” Biden’s brief and pre-rehearsed conversation was described as showing complete “total disregard to the loss of our Marine” according to Roice, who added, “You can’t f**k up as bad as he did and say you’re sorry. This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands.” Parker asked,
|“The sister of one of the Marines killed in the airport attack told the press that the President’s comments struck her family as ‘scripted’ and ‘shallow.’ And she said, quote, ‘You can’t F up as bad as he did and say you’re sorry. This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands.’” Parker went on to ask Psaki if she could “talk a little about how the president thought the meeting with the families went? And also, what responsibility, if any, for these deaths does he think he bears?” |
Psaki dodged the question with a scripted and shallow response. Kathy McCollum, Rylee’s mother, called into a radio show and ripped Biden as a “feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap” after she learned of her son’s death:
|"My son was one of the marines that died yesterday. He was 20 years and six months old, getting ready to come home to be with his wife to watch the birth of his son.
And that feckless, dementia ridden piece of crap, Biden, just sent my son to die.
I woke up at 4’o’clock this morning to US Marines at my door telling me my son was dead.
I never thought in 1 million years that he would die for nothing, for nothing because a feckless, dementia-ridden piece of crap who decided he wanted a photo-op on Sept. 11 — that’s what kills me. I wanted my son to represent our country, to fight for my country. But I never thought that a feckless piece of crap would send him to his death, and smirk on television while he’s talking about people dying with his nasty smirk.
So, to have right on before me, to have to listen to that piece of crap Biden talk about diplomatic crap with Taliban terrorists who just freaking blew up my son and no, nothing, to not say anything about …"Oh my God I’m so sorry for failing.”
My son is gone, and I just want all you Democrats who cheated in the election, or who voted for him legitimately, to know you just killed my son with a dementia ridden piece of crap who doesn’t even know he’s in the White House, who still thinks he’s a senator.
McCollum’s pregnant widow felt Biden showed “total disregard to the loss of our Marine — our brother, son, husband, and father” when Biden spoke to her. Roice said “This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands, the thousands of Afghans who will suffer and be tortured is a direct result of his incompetence.”
Family members of the US Marines killed in the suicide terror attack at the Kabul airport slammed Biden for his disrespectful behavior at the dignified transfer ceremony where the bodies were received. The father of Marine Lance Cpl. Jared Schmitz told the Washington Post of an outburst that occurred toward the end of the ceremony when one woman allegedly shouted at Biden, “I hope you burn in hell! That was my brother!” Schmitz added that Biden "talked a bit more about his own son [Beau Biden] than he did my son, and that didn’t sit well with me. When he just kept talking about his son so much, it was just — my interest was lost in that. I was more focused on my own son than what happened with him and his son. I’m not trying to insult the president, but it just didn’t seem that appropriate to spend that much time on his own son.” Schmitz took out a photo of his own son,
|"I said, ‘Don’t you ever forget that name. Don’t you ever forget that face. Don’t you ever forget the names of the other 12. And take some time to learn their stories."|
Schmitz told St. Louis radio station KMOX to “be afraid of our leadership, or lack thereof. Pray every day for the soldiers that are putting their lives at risk and doing what they love, which is protecting all of us. I think they’re the only ones that we can honestly say have our backs.”
Every time a casket was unloaded, Biden looked at his watch. “I actually leaned into my son’s mother’s ear and I said, ‘I swear to God, if he checks his watch one more time …’,” Schmitz recalled, “and that was only probably four times in. I couldn’t look at him anymore after that, just considering, especially, the time and why we were there. I found it to be the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen.” Hoover said he and his family declined to meet with Biden. “We said, ‘Absolutely not.’ We didn’t want to deal with him. We didn’t want — we didn’t want him anywhere near us. We as a family decided that was the way it was going to be.”
Psaki did not deny that Biden was checking the time when she was asked by Fox News correspondent Jacqui Heinrich, “Was the president looking at his watch and does he have a message to those people who felt that they were offended?”
Let's Go Brandon
As the "Let's Go Brandon" meme went viral on the internet, Biden attempted to co-opt the meme by exploiting a person with disabilities named Brandon. Biden tweeted, "I’m fighting every day to pass my Build Back Better Agenda for folks like Brandon. His story is like so many I’ve heard across the country. Folks are just looking for a fighting chance and to be treated with the dignity they deserve – and that’s what my agenda is all about."
Racist travel ban
Regime chief propagandist Jen Psaki refused to answer questions about Biden's racist travel ban on Africans travelling from Black African countries. When Simon Ateba, a black African reporter with Today News Africa, attempted to question Psaki about the racist motivations behind the travel ban on black Africans, Psaki ignored Ateba in favor of a sympathetic white liberal reporter. Ateba was persistent, and wanted to know why with no cases of the Omicron coronavirus variant in Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, and Mozambique, what justified the travel ban on countries with zero cases of the variant. Ateba asked, “What would you say to those who believe that this is a racist ban, that it is only on African and black African nations?”
Psaki couldn't answer the question and scolded Ateba about decorum, telling him to learn his place by watching his white counterparts. According to Fox News, Ateba said,
|"The travel ban was built on a lie. The president on November 26  banned 8 African countries. Only 2 of those countries had any case of the omicron variant.”
Ateba, a native of Cameroon according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, went on to question the supposed science behind Biden’s ban, pointing to Namibia, a small country on the continent’s Atlantic coast. The nation of 2.5 million people registered only 400 cases of COVID-19 since the virus’ inception, he said, but yet Biden essentially punished them anyway.
“There’s total chaos: People can’t travel to Namibia, Zimbabwe [or] Mozambique, yet they have zero cases. So I don’t believe I was the one being disrespectful. I think Africa was disrespected, by banning countries based on a lie,” he said, referencing claims by Psaki he was being disrespectful of his fellow White House reporters."
