Is this an “attack on the free press” or nah?
We were told that a President who said negative things about the press was “dangerous and divisive” and attacking one of the cornerstones of a free and democratic society.
Of course, that was when Trump was calling CNN, WaPo, and the New York Times “fake news” and it’s pretty clear now that it’s not just them — with very few exceptions, the entire Corporate Media edifice is nothing but mainstream propaganda outlets for Democrats.
Corporate Media outlets were outraged when the Good and Righteous left-leaning media was “under attack” from the sitting President of the United States. Now, it’s just those backward disinformation-peddlers over at “Faux News” that appeals to the yokels in *shudder* red-state America. I mean, who even cares about that?
Journos stood in solidarity when CNN’s Glory Boy, Jim Acosta, had his White House press pass revoked for a few days after he shoved the arm of a White House staffer. The young woman made the horrible mistake of trying to take away the microphone during his failed attempt at becoming the nextSam Donaldson, which was doomed from the get-go because it takes more charisma than Acosta possesses.
Acosta was furiously retweeting the support that he received from his press colleagues.
President Joe Biden called Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a bitch” as the press fired off questions at the end of a photo op on Monday.
The president made the comment into a live microphone at the tail end of an event meant to fissure his efforts to address supply chain issues and tackle inflation.
But reporters who listened quietly during the president’s remarks wanted to ask about the decision to send thousands of troops to bolster allies on Russia’s eastern flank.
When he finished his prepared remarks, several reporters yelled out questions to the president – who was seated across the long East Room of the White House. Biden spoke briefly about his call with European leaders about the Ukraine crisis when asked for an update by CNN’s Kaitlan Collins – but first scolded the press.
‘The only reason I don’t like doing this is you never report on why I’ve called the meeting. This is really important. I had a very, very, very good meeting. Totally unanimity with all the European leaders. We’ll talk about it later,’ Biden responded.

While Biden lamented that the press generally go off-topic — which isn’t surprising when we’re now talking about the possibility of sending troops into Ukraine to defend their border against a nuclear power while we leave our own open under the control of human trafficking cartels — Doocy actually kept his question relevant.
As White House staffers were ushering the press out at the end of the photo-op, Doocy shouted out, “Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?”
Apparently unaware that his mic was still on, Biden said, “It’s a great asset — more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.”

How many journalists are going to come out swinging defending the Fox News White House Correspondent from this verbal assault by the Shambling Husk of Mediocrity who objected to the question?
That number is probably going to be very low.
CNN’s clown eunuch, Brian Stelter is already downplaying it. He shared the video on Twitter and captioned it, “At the end of a Biden photo op, when reporters shouted Q’s hoping he’d respond, Fox’s Peter Doocy asked, ‘Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?’ Biden deadpanned: ‘It’s a great asset—more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.'”

“Deadpanned”? What happened to the “dangerous” and “divisive” rhetoric from the Oval Office?
Isn’t this a threat to the free press?
Yes, it’s cliché, but can you just imagine what would happen if this had been the Bad Orange Man who said that about Acosta or the Democrat bootlicker, Yamiche Alcindor?
It would be a week-long news cycle.
This, well this is just one more in a long line of Biden’s inappropriate outbursts that will get memory-holed at the first opportunity.
Don’t let them get away with it.
This attack on the press is just as serious as any of Trump’s alleged attacks on the press and it needs to be brought up at every single opportunity.
When it gets closer to the midterms and Democrats try to say that Joe Biden is a model of decency and brings decorum back to the White House — mention that he called a reporter a “stupid son of a bitch” and ask them if that’s “decency and decorum.”
Bring it up when you mention that Biden’s Parmesan cheese-sniffing, amateur porn-filming, crack-smoking son, Hunter, was getting paid tens of thousands of dollars a month by Ukraine for a job that he had zero qualifications for and then suddenly became a successful artist whose work was fetching the same as some pieces by Picasso.
Bring it up when the left says that Joe Biden is “uniting the country” — yeah, uniting them against him. Have you seen the recent polling? He’s about as popular as a colonoscopy.
We need to remember these incidents. Always remember and use it at every opportunity.
Until the left says that we can have reasonable debates on policies without calling Republicans racists, sexists, and anti-science, we cannot unilaterally disarm.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
